Why detoxing is so important?

          Detox and why is it important???

Hello world, I am so happy sharing this with you all. This weekend I spent the entire weekend watching food documentaries..and holy cow, Ouch!!! I consider myself healthy but after watching these documentaries I feel inspired to share with everyone the importance of detoxing and juicing.
     I used to consider detoxing taking a pill for 10 days, and that was it. I thought I'm clean now, nope..I still had the re-occurring headaches, fatigue, & depression. I've learned a lot.
       I continue to study, read and expand my awareness to health and fitness. One thing I realize is that juicing to detox your body is so important. Juicing will detox the  heavy metals in your body, the junk and gunk in your body. So many people ask why they can't loose weight?. Mostly because there is so much gunk in the body that needs to be cleaned out to start loosing the weight. 
There are so many diseases in our day in age, you go to a Doctor and they prescribe medication, where basically they are not curing the disease. Juicing will begin to re-boot your body. 
You need colors in your juice for nutrition.

It's so important to add variety, also adding aloe vera, chia seeds, seaweed, parsley, cilantro to your juices will make a big difference.
Aloe Vera:
Aloe helps in Detoxification
Aloe Vera is a gelatinous plant food, just like seaweeds and chia. The main benefit to consuming gelatinous plant foods in your diet is that these gels move through the intestinal tract absorbing toxins along the way and get eliminated through the colon. This will help the proper elimination of waste from your body and help the detoxification of your body.

Chia Seed:
Help weight loss. Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper. You feel fuller faster, reduce blood pressure. They are the richest plant source of Omega-3.

Seaweed's best-known benefit is that it is an extraordinary source of a nutrient missing in almost every other food: Iodine. Consuming healthy levels of iodine is critically important to maintaining a healthy thyroid, a gland in your neck which helps produce and regulate hormones. A malfunctioning thyroid can result in a wide range  of symptoms such as fatigue, muscle weakness and high cholesterol.

Parsley:                                                                 Cilantro:
        I'm adding a few recipes for juicing, for more information on juicing, please feel free to add your name to the right, workshops soon to be scheduled...Also please check the following movies...
"Food Inc.", "Fat, sick & nearly dead", "Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue", "Vegucated".
There are many food documentaries, but just watching these your world can change. 

Remember stay healthy, stay fit and live a good life....
