Over the years juice feasts have become increasingly popular, and for good reason. A juice feast, also known as a juice fast or cleanse, is an amazing tool for assisting the body to detoxify on a cellular level. In this article we go deeper into this important factor but did you know that a juice feast can also impact your emotional world in wonderful ways?
Flushing out toxins
When your body works optimally your detoxification pathways, such as your beautiful lymphatic system, kidneys, liver, colon, and skin will smoothly dump toxins and acids. However, most bodies need some tender love and care to assist the detoxification process. A juice feast is a great way to get your body into gear.
Usually, a period of cleansing will also make you more conscious about your food choices afterward. A juice feast is great but I don’t think it’s great if people use it as a means to do whatever they want in between juice feasts. That’s not the way a juice feast should be approached and neither the way your body and health deserve.
Instead, use a juice feast to heal your body, to assist your detoxification pathways to start working properly, and/or to bless your body for a period of time to be flooded with a ton of nutrients to feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
A joyful spirit
When your body is deprived of essential nutrients it can wreak havoc on your health. Depressive feelings are a common symptom of malabsorption and hormonal disbalance. A juice feast can help to elevate your mood by nourishing your body with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, omega 3-fatty acids, enzymes, and fiber. Yup, juices also contain fiber. There are two types of fiber: insoluble and soluble. Fresh-pressed juices are packed with soluble fiber. These fibers feed your gut microbiome.
There is simply no better and easier way to flood your cells with the much-needed nutrients it needs to thrive. I create various juices every single day and my focus is mainly on fresh leafy green juices. I don’t know about you but I cannot eat a bunch of apples, cucumber, and handfuls of leafy greens in one go but I can easily sip 32 oz/1 liter of fresh pressed juice. #hellonutrients
Fueling your body with an abundance of nutrients will help to heal the four basic processes (click here and here to read more about these processes), reduce stress, and elevate your mood, which leads to a happier outlook on life.

If you approach a juice feast correctly (check this article to learn how to approach a juice feast successfully) then not only will your body flush out toxins like a champion and elevate your mood but your energy will skyrocket too!
Sipping on juices works two ways: it both saves and provides your body energy.
Your digestive system doesn’t need to work hard to break down all the nutrients (this is also a reason why leafy green smoothies are so incredibly good for you besides leafy green juices!) so it saves your body energy. The nutrients quickly enter the bloodstream and off they go into your cells. At the same time, your fueling your body with lots of nutrients, providing the body with energy. Enjoying fresh pressed juices is without question a win-win situation.
Clarity of mind
Flushing the body of toxins, acids, and an overload of mucus will result in sharp focus, clarity of mind, and being present in your day-to-day. Automatically, this will help you to make better decisions. You’ll feel more in tune with things happening inside and outside you, which also enables you to be a better judge of whether certain things should be part of your life or not. Clarity of mind will do that, which is wonderful. Making healthy decisions will also help you to be more productive in other areas that do need your attention. Maybe you have been wanting to start a side hustle that eventually enables you to work independently so that you are in charge of your time and finances. No matter what your dreams are, everyone benefits from the clarity of mind.
A juice feast is a blessing on all sorts of levels and certainly can boost your confidence. The thing is that once you get into the groove of a juice feast you start to feel good about yourself. Sure, the first couple of days can be tricky but once you’re on a roll you’ll feel happy, energized, and focused. Working on your health gives you a sense of self-esteem and self-love. You start to taste the goodness of vibrant health just like God intended to.
An incredible juice(r) feast
Now, you might wonder what juicer is best to use when you want to set yourself up for a successful juice feast. It’s such a joy that the world of juicers has been evolving ever since it was founded by Dr. Norman W. Walker. Personally, I’d recommend getting your hands on a high-quality slow juicer. A slow juicer has many benefits over a centrifugal juicer, such as more juice, more nutrients, better taste, and less oxidation, to name a few.
I love the Hurom H320N. I love it for all sorts of reasons: it is very easy to use and clean, it creates the best quality juice I could wish for, and it still tastes great at the end of the day.
