Dry brushing. I’ve been using my dry brush at least once a day, if not twice, to help eliminate any toxins that may try pushing through the skin. I especially like dry brushing right before a sauna session , so I don’t have any clogged pores!
A tongue scraper. This thing scrapes all that white gunk off my tongue, and leaves my mouth feeling cleaner than ever. Unfortunately, it doesn’t help get the coating off my teeth… and even brushing them with a powerful toothbrush doesn’t get it all off! Gross.
My rebounder. Bouncing gets your lymph moving, and helps carry those toxins out! Just a few minutes of bouncing can do the trick.
Regular exercise. I’ve been keeping up my regular treadmill workout throughout the fast, as well. The more you can keep your blood flowing, the better! Lately, I’ve been using my GymBoss timer to time my walk/jog intervals on the treadmill. Juice fasting isn’t a time to increase your workouts, but since my regular workouts are pretty moderate, I’ve had no problem keeping them up. In fact, running was actually easier for me this morning!
*not sure how my exercise routine would change with a longer fast, but 3 days is short enough to keep things pretty normal.
An enema bag. Colon cleansing just comes with fasting territory. You’re awakening toxins by juice fasting, but if you don’t help your body eliminate them, you run the risk of those toxins simply being reabsorbed into the body (which probably won’t feel good, by the way). I’m employing the use of my enema bag at home, and will be getting a professionally-administered gravity colonic at the end of my fast.
