View Full Version : Water or fresh juice?
02-27-2006, 03:34 PM
I know I am pounding the questions at everyone today, :eek: but I am practically bed ridden during this detox and questions keep coming to mind...so I ask.
I am curious as to which is more important during a cleanse, water or fresh veggie juice? Or are both important? Water is not easy to drink for me.

well, you said during a "cleanse". What do you use in the shower toclean your body with, water or juice?
Seems to me that water cleans the inside of our body not only the outside. But then again, if you need nutrients, juice is the answer.
Dunno, I am green here :o

I can't say that I know for certain, but it seems that the juice is good because it's going to give you nutrients. The water is going to help your detox along by flushing out your system. What kind of cleanse are you doing? Unless the juice is your main/only source of nutrition for your cleanse, you might even want to ease up on the juice as it might make you detox even faster. Also, if you need to slow down the detox a bit, I've read that eating a banana will do it.

I'd listen to your body.. If your hungry have some juice or a smoothie to see if that helps. If you aren't then just do water. I've done alot of reading lately and most have said that if you are 'sick', aka detoxing, you don't want to eat much as it diverts energy your body is using to detox into food digestion.
Hope that helps!

My body is full of Candida, acidosis and mercury poisoning. I have been getting as thin as thin can be and have not known what the problem is as I have never had such severe Candida.
I only eat about seven raw foods and that is it. So, what kind of cleanse? Just a big darn cleanse. Taking good flora, superfood, toco, enzymes, sun chlorella for the mercury and just shuving it back as much as I can handle. I don't know if that is a good idea or not, all I know is I cannot go on the way I have been so I have to take some drastic measures.
Trying to rebound for 30 seconds a few times during the day and haven't had any juice today yet and finding it hard to drink the water and not really sure which would do me the most good right now. Dizzy, weak and feel like my insides are crawling/slightly vibrating.

Sounds like a couple of things going on.......
Do you feel naseauous? Is it mostly headache?
For example, if you are experiencing cold like sympotoms and tired, it can be helpful to have lemon juice with honey--dash of cayenne to stimualte the blood flow to help move the toxins. Lemon breaksdwon mucous,is anti vir,anti bac and cleansing to live and kidneys and the honey and lemon have vitamin and nutrients that can aid in replenishiing you since detox can be VERY powerful which it sounds like you are going thru.
Water is cleansing but may be too poetent for some. I'd drink a little lemon water.........massage massage massage and soak in the tub
Important to stay hydrated. :) PLease keep us posted so we know you are dealing with it alright.
