It’s that time of year again!!! Cleaning leaves and wearing sweaters?!?! Well, yes, but no. Time for detoxing, fasting cleansing… Sound difficult or unappetizing? Doesn’t have to!
Spring and fall have been considered the seasons of reboot and rebalance since the birth of Hinduism, Jesus, Hippocrates, Aristotle. Herbert Shelton (1895-1985), the physician who supervised the fasts of over 40,000 people in the last century, wrote "Fasting must be recognized as a fundamental and radical process that is older than any other mode of caring for the sick organism, for it is employed on the plane of instinct..."1
I, myself, don’t take easily to fasting. Why? I LOVE FOOD!
I do intellectually and instinctive also appreciate disciplining myself from time to time to quit eating so much so that I can give my GI tract and other organs a rest… It’s a good idea (check out some benefits). All day (and night) our bodies are consuming so much – so much food, information, artificial lighting, germs, and experiences. To process and integrate that massive amount of…STUFF, it’s important to let the body rest.
Here’s some idea for considering a little “house cleaning” this fall utilizing a juice cleanse.
I hope this article helps you out! Please comment and share as much as your heart desires! I would love to hear how your fall juice cleanse goes so give me shout on my facebook page!
