Juicing Appliances For The Alkaline Diet

Published by:

In my health consulting practice I’m finding that many people would benefit greatly from a high alkaline diet. Alkalizing foods are those that have a negative Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) value. This is a calculation that is based upon the quantities of nutrients and minerals that foods contain. Negative values indicate alkaline foods while a positive value means a food has an acidifying effect. The goal of this diet is not to only eat alkaline foods, this could lead to adverse consequences. But typically our diets these days are too far on the acid side of the spectrum, so adding more alkaline foods is going to be good for us.

If you are trying to follow an alkaline diet then it would be useful to have a juicer machine. This can help you increase the amount of alkaline foods you consume in your diet. When you discover that alkaline foods are simply fruits and vegetables, it is hard to argue against it. We have been told since childhood that fruits and vegetables are good for us. This diet simply attempts to put a scientific spin on why this is.

Since consuming more fruits and vegetables is good for us in so many ways, the more that we can consume each day, the healthier we will be. But trying to eat large quantities of fruits and vegetables can be time consuming and there is obviously a limit to the amount we are able to eat. This is why juicing for health really can work wonders. It is very easy to make orange juice or an apple and carrot drink that contains up to five servings of fresh produce. Imagine having a couple of these drinks each day. This would give you so much fruit and vegetable nutrition it would most certainly have an alkalizing effect in your body and very soon start to make you feel full of energy each and every day.

Juice Fast Diet for Quick Weight Loss

Published by:

A juice fast is usually a last ditch diet effort to lose stubborn weight because the diet is extreme. However, it can be highly effective for those who manage to stay on this rigid diet.

The main benefit is that this is a quick weight loss diet. You can lose anywhere from one to four pounds daily in the beginning of a juice fast, slowing down to about a pound a day as the fast progresses. It is not unusual to see someone drop 30 pounds on a 30-day fast and that kind of weight loss can be transformative.

Staying on this diet is a challenge but for those who have staying power, the benefits far exceed weight loss. Fasting has been shown to be a healthy practice that detoxifies the body and cleanses the blood.

Here are a few recipes to use during a juice fast;

  • 6 carrots
  • 6 kale leaves
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 4 beets
  • 2 turnip
  • 1/2 lb. spinach
  • 1 head cabbage
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1/2 of an onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Place all ingredients in water and gently boil until vegetables are tender. Drain liquid for use during fasting.

Here is a lemon juice recipe that speeds detoxification

  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (approximately 1 lemon)
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 32 oz steam distilled water

While you can drink commercial juices, make sure you avoid any juice that contains sugar or artificial ingredients. It is better to lean more toward vegetable juices instead of fruit juices. It is typically recommended that you sip 4 to 8 glasses of juice throughout the day and also drink an additional 6 to 8 glasses of filtered or purified water throughout the day.

It is also important to know that you might feel the effects of detoxification, especially in the early days of the fast diet. Flu-like symptoms are the common symptoms of detoxification. If you feel ill, increase your juice intake by an additional glass to slow the detoxification process.

20 Tips To Successful Internal Body Cleansing

Published by:

These tips were originally published to help those doing the Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning Program Internal Body Cleanse, however the tips presented here can work with Master Cleanse or any other natural internal body cleansing. Wherever the tips refer to an Isagenix product I will include a substitute item that you may already have in your own kitchen.

9. Find a Cleansing Partner to help keep each other accountable and provide encouragement and support.

Check out the following resources for a Cleanse Partner:

  • Exercise Friends
  • Craigs List – go to the Community Section under Activities. If you don’t find anyone looking for a Cleanse Partner, post a request yourself. You just might inspire someone to get healthy with you!

10. Do something during your cleanse that boosts your spirit, such as caring for a loved one or doing something kind for a stranger.

11. Avoid activities and/or places where you will be likely to eat such as:

  • watching television
  • going to the movies
  • lunch or dinner with friends

12. Don’t avoid being around people, just make sure to plan ahead so that socializing doesn’t include food.

13. Understand what’s happening to your body.

Cleanse for Life™ offers gentle cleansing botanicals (not laxatives) that encourage better digestion and absorption of nutrients as well as B vitamins such as niacin that help to produce a healthy metabolism, improve blood flow and eliminate impurities. Because your body is releasing toxins and stored fat you may experience more frequent bowel movements that have a color different than your normal bowel movements.

14. Don’t forget to take IsaFlush!®, Natural Accelerator™ and Ionix® Supreme.

This is not a sales pitch to purchase more Isagenix products. These products support circulation, fat burning and provide the proper nutrients that your body needs to sustain itself during your cleanse.

15. Drink plenty of purified water.

This will improve your skin, boost your immune system and mood as well as aid in weight loss. To determine the minimum amount of water you should drink daily, weigh yourself and divide that number by two. That’s how many ounces of water you should drink each day.

16. If you’ve hit a weight-loss plateau, try adding a scoop of IsaPro® to your IsaLean® Shake on Shake Days.

This is a practice that athletes use to increase their protein intake and may help boost your metabolism also. If you don’t have access to IsaPro Protein Powder or IsaLean Shake Powder you can substitute any natural or organic protein powder supplements.

17. Experiment with new beverages, such as:

  • spicy tea (caffeine free)
  • low-sodium organic vegetable soup- try Isagenix Creamy Chicken or Savory Tomato soups.
  • low-sodium organic vegetable broth
  • strong teas such as a hibiscus or mint tea or double the tea bags in your favorite tea
  • Isagenix Greens mixed with cold or hot water
  • Ionix Supreme mixed with cold or hot water – no more than two ounces a day

18. Eat light snacks throughout the day to maintain blood sugar levels.

* Isagenix Snacks!™
* IsaDelight™
* unsalted almonds
* organic raw veggies
* organic hard boiled eggs
* organic apples
* organic sugar free applesauce

19. If you’re choose to exercise, do so gently. Your body needs time to rest and rebuild. Try gentle stretching, short walks, Pilates or yoga.

20. Register for the Isabody Challenge!

There’s nothing like a contest to inspire motivation! Scroll down to the links for Coaching Calls for inspiring articles and helpful tips and guidelines. Once you’ve signed up with Isagenix you can register for the Isabody Challenge.

21. Bonus Tip: Don’t do a liquid cleanse for longer than 2 days in a row or more than 4 days in a month.

Severely depriving your body of calories for longer periods of  time can alter your metabolism so that continued weight loss and maintaining your weight loss are much more difficult.

Make today the day you get started on the road to internal nutritional body cleansing!

Obtain a Healthier Body and Live Longer

Published by:

Our body bears a strong resemblance to a big machine. Each part has its own important function. If we don’t take care of our body just like the machine, it will deteriorate. The reason why we are still capable of thinking, walking, running and doing all kinds of outdoor activities is because our body acts as a shield. We are protected by our excretory system which helps eliminate many of the toxins inside our body. These toxins can weaken our body and can really affect our thinking ability. If our body is full of toxins and our colon could no longer hold the large amount of toxins inside our body, our immune defenses will start to weaken as well. Detox cleanses supply and aid our colon. This method ensures that our body is free from any harmful elements which can cause diseases and can make our body weak.

Each of our body parts is designed to effectively wash away toxins and impurities. However, these body parts, especially our vital organs, will not fully function if they have to spend lots of time flushing toxins from our body. Other functions of these organs are often neglected as their tasks are focused on getting rid of waste products. These can result in poor liver and kidney function. If these two organs fail to function normally, our body will no longer perform its duty in shielding the body from diseases. This will make us more prone to illness.

This is where detoxification comes in. Detoxification has several functions such as preventing more toxins from entering our body and removing impurities from our colon. As a result, our body will resume their full functions and our cells will become rejuvenated. After detoxification, you will feel revitalized as the chemical substances inside the body are already removed.

Obtaining a healthy and fit body is never impossible if we follow a balanced diet. We should include fruits and vegetables in our daily diet along with regular exercise.  Drinking plenty of water everyday also does wonders for your digestive system. You will feel its effect once your bowel movement becomes regular.  Try these best practices first before undergoing a detox cleanse process as this may improve your health and physical being.

Body Cleanse – Isagenix Super Juice

What’s In Your Internal Body Cleansing Super Juice?

Everywhere you turn there’s a new super juice body cleanse on the market.  Even popular juices are jumping on the bandwagon by adding a sprinkle of healthy ingredients to their regular products.

Internal nutritional body cleansing unlocks the miracle of the human body. The herbs, vitamins and minerals that aid cleansing do two things:

  • Accelerate the removal of impurities from the body.
  • Nourish the body with vital nutrients to rapidly revive health.

A body that has experienced a nutritionally supported cleansing and detoxification is a body that is stronger, resists illness better, is more efficient and performs at a higher level than one that is filled with impurities or that has gone through the stress of a non-nutritionally based cleansing. Many people notice an ability to reach and maintain their ideal weight with less effort.

Dr. Lynn Hardy, N.D., C.N.C., Director of the Global College of Natural Medicine says that …

Internal Cleansing Pretty Much Guarantees Significant Weight Loss

When you have a sluggish, toxic digestive system, your metabolism becomes slower, your energy level drops and you’re generally not strong enough to burn off stored fat by exercising or moving enough throughout your day. A cleansing program can help restore the balance in your body and increase your metabolism, which will kick start your body’s fat-burning machine. After a thorough detoxification, you’ll find yourself more inclined to eat healthier and make healthier lifestyle choices. Once you’re living with a detoxified system, improved digestion and a balanced metabolism you’ll find – that you have little trouble reaching and maintaining a healthy weight.

Other Benefits of Internal Cleansing

  • The Prevention of Illness
  • An Improvement in Physical Appearance
  • A Boost in Emotional Well-Being
  • A Sharpening of Mental Capabilities
  • An Enhancement in Digestion
  • The Elimination of Unhealthy Food Addictions & Allergies
  • The Attainment of Ideal Weight
  • A Minimizing of the Effects of Aging
