Green juicing can be thought of as juicing for life, for bringing back the vitality and youth you once had. The benefits derived from juicing greens are truly miraculous from a nutritional and health standpoint.
The reasons we juice can be as individual as we are. Losing weight, cleansing the body, regaining health and healing from disease are what we will gain from implementing a green juicing program regardless of why we choose to juice.
Green Juicing and Losing Weight
While some excess weight may not seem like an immediate health concern, being overweight results in excess fat cells. Fat cells contain estrogen, estrogen which is excreted, and comes into contact with our other cells. Estrogen feeds cancer cells like crazy! This is something to think about when you are reaching for a milkshake instead of a green juice. That milkshake is also loaded with sugar, another facilitator of cancer cell growth. Green juice is low in calories and high in nutrients. This is a great combination for weight loss. I am a big advocate of drinking green juice to lose weight as I dropped 10 pounds effortlessly when I started my own personal health regime.
Green Juicing and Cleansing
My health regime also resulted in cleansing my body. Drinking green juice is an essential precursor to beginning renewed living. Green juicing detoxifie your body by:
Juicing removes the fiber, an indigestible carbohydrate , which is a part of every green vegetable you juice. Fiber slows down nutrient absorption and binds some of the nutrients we need to regain health, making them unavailable to us. We need fast, efficient nutrient absorption;
Green juice only takes about 20 to 30 minutes to digest, allowing your digestive system to rest, reserve energy and return to a healthy state.
Green Juicing and Healing From Disease
Healing and green juicing go hand in hand .Dr. Otto Warburg, author of The Cause and Prevention of Cancer, came to a scientific conclusion which is the basis for healing and the reason we use green juices to facilitate healing.
Dr. Warburg, recipient of a Nobel Prize for physiology and medicine, concluded that inadequate oxygen in the body was a major factor in the development of cancer. He further concluded that with a consistent source of oxygenation to every cell, cancer could be prevented.
What does this have to do with green juicing?
Green juices carry oxygen throughout your body, oxygenating every cell and tissue, facilitating an oxygen-rich environment, providing the playground for healing and health.
Dr. Ann Wigmore, a long-time advocate of a healing diet and a follower of Dr. Warburg, advocated green juice and Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll and enzymes are huge factors in the healing process and are a large component of green juices.
I follow Dr. Wigmore’s protocols daily.
In the first 3 months I dropped twelve pounds and 2 sizes.....without even trying. In addition I sleep better, focus more clearly and have much more energy. Actually, I feel as if I have woken up from a deep sleep. Today, I am a total juiceaholic!!
