I recently came back to Miami after spending three amazing months in Italy.
When I went there, middle of October, it was still sunny an warm, but I was wondering how it could have been spending the time during the winter there. It has been six long years since I didn’t stay in my country during the coldest time, and I was wondering if I could have escaped the flu and bacteria that this season usually generates.
Since I changed the food I was eating, and I started to pay more attention in having the quality ones, my body responds so well, and juicing is a huge part of the benefits I get.
What I do pretty much every day is drinking my favorite juice which is a mix of oranges, grapefruits, ginger, carrots, celery, green apple, lemon or lime, and grapes.
The deliciousness of this potent drink is huge; this is what I call my “Elisir di Lunga Vita” which means “Long Life Elixir.”
I believe it’s what saved me from catching a cold and flu while I was there, even if I was strictly in contact sometimes with sick people. How powerful!
My health conditions are overall good, and in a healthy person juicing is salutary because the natural sugar contained in the fruit especially, is easy to digest and to assimilate from our body.
People who have diabetes though have to be more careful.
A wrong diet and crappy food can cause diabetes, so first adjust this and reverse the condition, then eventually start juicing, but always consult a doctor first! Vegetable juice may be better than the fruit one in these cases.
Drinking juices can help improve your health dramatically.
Mainly if you eat high-quality food and keep a particular routine diet, adding juice is all good. Don’t get me wrong when I use the word diet; I’m not talking about restrictions and calories here, I’m just saying to pay attention to the quality of the food you usually eat. Since I became vegan a while ago, my lifestyle improved even more. Not everybody is ready or wants to change their habits, and I respect that, this is why is essential to have your eyes wide open when you go to the grocery store! Try to buy the less processed and natural foods possible.
When you drink the juices instead of a full meal your body can concentrate on “fixing something.”
What does that mean? When your body is not working to digest foods, it can focus on something else. For example, a significant thing that happens when you Juice is eliminating toxins. You get to decide how much you want to juice, but if you choose to take a whole week of just juices start to prepare even mentally. Our liver and our kidney usually work hard to remove toxins from the bloodstream, and in this case, you may experience side effects like a headache, joint pain or fatigue, and it is normal. You are detoxifying, and your body is adjusting to a cleansing process. Take it easy and rest as much as you can, your body is making space for a newest and healthier way to live.
Juices are just another way to add something valuable to your everyday lifestyle! Once you discover the benefits of these beautiful and healthy drinks, you won’t let them go!
Healthy and delicious drinks you can make it yourself! Play and be creative with that!
