As part of any whole food lifestyle such as the Full Spectrum Diet, juice therapy, the elimination and cleansing capacity of raw juice, is a great way to get in all your nutritional foods. Juices are extracted from fresh fruits and vegetables and are rich in their own medicinal properties. Raw juices are extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and natural sugars. Juices extracted from raw fruits and vegetables require little digestion and almost all their vital nutrients are assimilated directly in the bloodstream. Juice fasting or juice therapy is also a great way to detox your system. Accumulated metabolic waste and toxins are quickly eliminated.
Anti-aging therapies utilize the power of nature’s bounty due to the fact that many fruits and vegetables are rich in alkaline elements. This is highly beneficial in normalizing the balance of acid-alkaline in the blood stream and tissue structures, as there is over-acidity in many conditions of dis-ease. As an anti-aging therapy fruits and vegetable juice have an extraordinary revitalizing and rejuvenating effect on all the organs and functions of the body. Healing minerals in raw juices especially calcium, potassium and silicon help in restoring biochemical and mineral balance in cells and tissues, preventing premature aging.
