  • More tips below....

More Tips:

  • Hunger can be a sign of dehydration, if hungry, drink water or another juice.
  • Pregnant women should not do a Juice Fast of any kind\
  • Adding Soups such as Miso and Water based Veg soups can be a good alternative for juice in the evening.
  • Juicing doesn't suit all body types.
  • Raw juices, according to Chinese Medicine are cold and draining in nature. Therefore, its great for people who have hot body types, heat flushes, fiery tempers, irritability, mental fogginess, red complexion and excessive sweating. Colder body types may fast under supervision of a GP or health therapist, but soups would be  the more sensible option.
  • Detoxing after alcohol or cigarettes needs supervision by a health professional- withdrawal symptoms may occur and you need support to deal with these. Keep pushing through them, with advice.
