30-Day Juicing Challenge - Day 14
I think I should clarify by what I meant when I said detoxifying/cleanses are false. I wasn’t speaking in the verb sense, rather the noun.
Does our body cleanse itself? Absolutely! It’s a natural occurring process. I know this because my dad’s kidney’s are failing and he needs a dialysis machine to help him do what his kidney no longer can do: clean his blood. Also, alcohol and drugs are a fantastic indicator of detoxifying. Not ingesting it, but days later, as your body attempts to return to a level of norm.
Does drinking juice help the body detoxify? The simple answer is yes and no. It won’t physically push out any toxins (I also hate using the term toxins, because it’s so vague and people use it to describe anything that they believe ails them, but it’s easier for me to do so at the moment). I know this because there are no sure hangover cures. If there was, someone would be a billionaire, nay, trillionaire by now. All juice can do is make sure our body is running as optimally as it can. We can’t apply direct force to the negative things in our bodies, we can only assist our body in doing so. Otherwise, why would we need our organs? They’re not there for show. So, don’t get sucked up into the fads.
