Questions & Answers That May Interest You

Why do a fast?

You are a pure, energetic being who has unknowingly gotten a lot of mud caked on you, both inside and out, including physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. If you are reading this sentence it is time. It is your time to step up and begin the (re)purification process, and restore your frequency / resonance / vibration to a higher level.

How much will this cleansing/detox/fasting program cost?

Throughout the cleanse/detox/fasting process, please remember one thing... Over the course of your lifetime you have spent an ENORMOUS amount of time and money getting your body into the predicament that it's in today. It may take an equally ENORMOUS amount of time and money to get you out of this situation!

I eat a healthy diet. Why do I need to cleanse?

The phrase 'eating a healthy diet' is truly a broad stroke of the pen. It means different things to different people, and in some cases it can include the (SAD) Standard American Diet. That said, eating today's healthy diet is by no means a guarantee that you are healthy inside. Your body harbors old, caked on fecal matter on your intestinal walls which block nutrient absorption. Most people, although they do not realize it, have parasites, fungi and yeasts in their bodies which continually siphon the life force out of you.

Additionally, you cannot be alive today without taking toxins into your body. Environmental toxins invade our bodies from the air we breath, the water we drink, and the food we eat. In addition to the detrimental environmental effects, most of the products we use today are appalling collections of toxins.

Although you may feel healthy at the moment, the whole point of participating in a cleanse / detox / fast is to prepare yourself for the future. Get as much of the bad stuff out of your body now, stop or limit the amount which will come into your body today, and you can almost insure that your future will be one full of health and well-being.

It sounds like you're asking me to stop eating solid food. Is that safe?

First of all, keep in mind that the body is getting complete nourishment on this lifestyle. In addition to eating whole, raw fruit, you probably get more nourishment in juicing than most of you have ever gotten compared to your 'regular' diets.

Is swimming a good exercise during a fast?

Swimming is an excellent exercise, but you have to be very concerned about the quality of the water you are swimming in. During a cleanse / detox / fast you are spending your hard earned resources, both time and money, to clean up your body. You wouldn't want to got out and dip your biggest eliminative organ (your skin) in a bucket of chemicals would you? That's exactly what you would be doing if you began to swim in a 'normal' swimming pool. That goes for hot tubs too. It is much, much better to use a dry infrared sauna, wherein you sweat the toxins out instead of absorbing them in.


I heard cleaning up after using a juicer is a pain. What's the story?

No magical words of wisdom here... Fasting doesn't mean Fast Food. Prepping your produce, doing the juicing, and doing the cleanup takes a lot of time. If you're new to juicing, know full well going in that it is work, and work requires extra time in the kitchen. But don't let that stop you from doing the cleanse/detox/fast. Ultimately you will look back and know full well that the work has been worth the trouble. (I don't even have a garbage disposal in my sink, so it takes me even more time to clean the big chunks from my juicer before I wash it. If I can do it you can do it!) (Also... If you are lucky enough to have someone preparing your juice for you, whether it be at home or in a juice bar, be sure to thank them wholeheartedly. They deserve it!)

I was just in the kitchen cleaning my juicer when I was reminded of one practical hint that I can give you. Don't let the juice and waste material dry on the juicer before you clean it. Dried material = longer cleaning. :-)

Will I have normal bowel movements?

Although they may be somewhat less periodic than 'normal,' you will continue to experience bowel movements. During a cleanse/detox/fast, you are still eating fruit and green vegetables. Additionally, your body is discharging old, caked on intestinal/fecal matter and things like parasites and yeasts.

I do not have my eyesight. Can I still participate in cleansing?

There is a tremendous amount of work involved in juicing including washing the produce, produce pre-cutting and poststorage, and assembling and cleaning the juicing machine. This last point, cleaning the juicing machine, is of upmost importance. If food particles are left behind drying on the machine parts, there is the possibility for the development of bacteria.

My advice is to either have a sighted person support you throughout this fast, or go to a 'juicing' retail store. If you go to a 'juice bar,' insist that they use only the ingredients which you tell them to use.

Having said that, it is very important that you do not let this particular situation keep you from cleansing your body. Get assistance, and do the cleanse/detox/fast.

Can I loose weight on this fasting lifestyle?

I can only speak from personal experience. I lost 23 pounds in my first four weeks of changing to this lifestyle.

What about my medications during the fasting program?

If you are on medications that you cannot stop, don't even think about the water fasting part of this program. According to Dr. Michael Klapper, M.D. in his DVD entitled 'Fasting', (generally healthy people) "must stop all medications the first day of the water fast. The effects of the medications are potentiated (increased), and you get all sorts of side effects."

"If there's going to be a side effect of a drug it will happen on a fast. (In our clinic) we insist that people stop all medications. The only medication we allow is thyroid medications, but even that we reduce by 1/2."

Won't the citric acid from oranges, lemons, limes or grapefruit harm my teeth?

Followup your glass of juice with a swish of water.
