Double Chin Gone with a Juice Fast

Double Chin Gone with a Juice Fast

Can it possibly be true?  Yes indeed.

Are you wanting to get rid of jowls or a double chin? I wouldn’t recommend a prescription drug. That’s what I see promoted from the plastic surgeon’s office that’s down the hall from where I get my hair done. What kind of side effects would you get from a drug that targets fat under your chin? I’m all for natural remedies. But could juice fasting really melt away fat in odd places like under the chin? There are all sorts of reports about green juices melting belly fat. So why not face fat? Well, you can’t argue with someone’s success!

Here’s Raoul’s story firsthand:

“I want to let you know that we tried one of your one-week juice fasts last year. I’d had a strange “jowlyness” under my chin for a while, like a sort-of double chin or fattiness. This disappeared completely after the juice fast and has not returned since. Amazing result!!  All the best and thanks again for the excellent work you do!”        —Raoul

If you have some fat pockets you’d like to melt away, why not give juice fasting a try? My 5 Day Juice Fassst starts Monday. You can sign up today and get your produce shopping done over the weekend.

Detox or Die

What causes disease? It comes down to two things: an overload of toxins and deficiency of nutrients. If we keep cleansing our bodies and feeding them superior nutrition like we get from fresh vegetable juices, we have an excellent chance of staying healthy.

Want to avoid fall sniffles? Some health practitioners say that if you cleanse with the seasons, you won’t get sick. This is your opportunity to clean out the toxins before the holidays season is upon us. Cleansing your body not only helps you flush away the toxins, you can flush away fat too.

Want to drop a few pounds fast?  Need to refresh your body and detox? Summer is just around the corner and the “lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer” are about to descend upon us.  I loved that Nat King Cole song! It’s much easier to do a juice fast when the weather is warm.

5 Reasons to Juice Fast

5 Reasons to Juice Fast

5 Reasons to Juice Fast

Here are 5 great reasons to do a juice fast:

  1. You’ll Lose Weight – Many people lose 1 to 2 pounds a day when they juice fast. Many people have experienced this amazing weight loss during our retreats where we do 3 days of juice fasting together during the week.
  2. Detox – Juices are chock full of antioxidants that bind to toxins and carry them out of the body so they don’t damage your cells. You’ll clear out toxins that have hung around for a long time.
  3.  Rejuvenate Your Cells – There’s something about fresh juices with their vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, and biophotons. When you bathe your cells in all these wonderful nutrients, they come to life!
  4. Energize Your Body – One of the comments I hear most often from people who juice fast is that their energy increases. Why? Raw juices contain biophotons, the light rays of energy that plants absorb from the sun. Biophotons feed our mitochondria, the energy units of our cells that make ATP, our energy fuel.
  5. Look Younger – I often hear people exclaim that they look younger after a juice fast. The antioxidants go to work binding up free radicals that cause wrinkles.

Discover Your Destiny

Your Destiny is Waiting…

Not knowing who we are and not knowing why we are here are two of the most compelling reasons why vegetable juicing and making other healthy dietary changes becomes so volatile for many people. It is often difficult to deal with the stresses of life without our favorite “comfort foods” and especially sweets to stuff down a variety of emotions. It’s hard to avoid food temptations when we don’t have a compelling reason to discipline urges for the wrong foods and drink. And we often find we can’t face ourselves once toxins start coming out.

Do You Want to Be Healed?

Do You Want to Be Healed?

Do You Want to Be Healed?

There are many reasons why we get sick. Harmful emotions caused by hurtful situations can cause us to end up in a state of dis-ease. Stress is a “killer” for sue. But poor diet, toxins, lack of exercise, and lack of nutrients are among the top causes of disease.

At least one major study, conducted in the 1990s, found that 40% and possibly as high as 47% of deaths in the United States were caused by behavior patterns (diet, lack of exercise, tobacco, alcohol, etc.) meaning they could have been prevented.1 “At least 70 percent of health care spending is related to lifestyle,” The Milken Institute Review reported last year.  “While genes cause or contribute to some disease, our excess weight, tobacco use and poor exercise habits are far more damaging,” the publication noted.2 The American Journal of Medicine reported in 2007 that more than 62% of all bankruptcies in the United States stemmed directly from medical debts or the loss of income due to illness.3

If you want to turn your health, your energy, your life around, it’s time to do something different. Albert Einstein said, ”Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Your life is priceless! What are you doing to protect your health or turn your health around?

Juicing, cleansing your body, learning new ways of eating, exercising, and de-stressing are all important components of healing and a healthy lifestyle.

Rejuvenating Power of Fasting

Rejuvenating Power of Fasting

Rejuvenating Power of Fasting

“Fasting is the food of the soul.

St. John Chrysostom

 

We kicked off our 30-Day Detox Challenge January 4 with a 3-day juice fast. It’s been an amazing journey for more than 150 of us.

The health benefits of fasting are numerous and significant. Often people say they experience benefits in just a few days such as greater energy, brain power, and vitality. Other important benefits include improved digestion, stronger immune system, better sleep, reduced inflammation, balanced blood sugar, improved circulation, weight loss, balanced hormones, clearer skin, and a greater sense of well-being. Long-term exposure to toxins has been linked to numerous types of cancer, diabetes, and other chronic, health conditions. Flushing toxins and waste away with a veggie juice fast is a super rejuvenator for your body.

Do you want to heal your body? You can rejuvenate your body from the inside out. It is said that only half of our cells are fully functional, another quarter are in the formative stage, and the remaining are sick or degenerating. Fasting takes care of the last quarter. “The diseased cells disappear [in a fast], and the healthy ones remain,” says Otto Buchinger. (From Wisdom From the Monastery)

30877912_lJuice fasting happens at our retreats. We begin with gourmet raw foods and Tuesday begin a juice fast for 3 days together. It’s very helpful to have a group to juice with. It’s also very helpful to have the juice made for you, along with not having any food temptations lying around. We’ve seen amazing healing take place at our Juice and Raw Food Retreats in just five days. People lose weight, look younger, get rid of pain throughout their bodies, and start healing more serious conditions. I invite you to join us in April for a life-changing week.

Look at what these people experienced with juice fasting and detoxing:

This is the 3rd week [of the detox] for me. I was so happy to look in the mirror and see ALL the cellulite in the back area GONE!! The skin is as smooth and toned as could be, without having worked out since we started. Wow, just wow! Keep up the work, everyone, it’s so worth it. Also, I am not weighing till monday but I can tell I’ve lost a lot. —Jonida

I have also lost cellulite but it was so hard to believe, I didn’t say anything (and I have a little more to lose). Thanks for mentioning this. It’s a confirmation for me!   —-Nancy Jo

I began an enlightening journey juicing about 2 quarts a day. Every day.  What happened?  I became less hungry. That gnawing feeling of always being hungry left me.  The cup full of vitamins I took 3 times a day dwindled down to about a tablespoon once a day.  The pain I felt most of the time has lifted. I only want to eat meat once every three days now. I experimented to see what would happen if I used juice in place of different vitamins, to see if I could eliminate them.  When I added more ginger, my sinus congestion left.  I experimented to see if I was imagining the improvements. I deleted the juice for 2 days.  The pain, lack of energy, hunger and sinus congestion returned.  I went back on the juice and it went away again.

“I am a mother of 7. Between being pregnant and nursing it adds up to 14 years.  Even though my diet has been very good all those years I see that I was so hungry for what I have found in juicing.  It has become an ‘A’ activity for me. I am saving hundreds of dollars a month by getting my vitamins fresh in juice. Quite a concept.  I am surprised…and delighted. ”    —-Kathy

“What an amazing class. I would have never made it thru without Cherie’s guidance. The group experience was beyond helpful. People across the world took part. So much healing in people. People lost from 8 to 30 pounds and felt so much better. I lost the stubborn last 10 pounds that plague so many along with achy joints.  Thank you, Cherie”. – B.W.
