Read from the Book

INTRODUCTIONToday our bodies are exposed to toxins from when we get up in the morning to when we go to sleep at night. They come in the form of chemicals, pesticides, hormones, and other pollutants, and can be found in our immediate surround-ings from paint, lotions, carpets, furniture, and even tap water. Although our bodies have a natural built-in detoxifier that helps expel these toxins, the increase in these substances, particularly in our foods, is putting a great burden on our health.The buildup of toxins in our bodies can have lasting effects on our health, causing our immune systems to become weaker. Mineral deficiency makes the condition even worse; it can result in a variety of symptoms, including lack of energy, headaches, weight problems, allergies, mood swings, and insomnia. To detoxify efficiently, we need to give our bodies some assistance in eliminating these harmful substances. A detox plan can help with this. What is a smoothie detox?A smoothie detox can give the body the time it needs to flush out the backlog of toxins. During a short detox, the body is able to cleanse, purify, and rebuild itself. A longer detox (of more than a few days) can result in deep cleansing at the tissue level, where accumulated toxins and wastes have built up. Short fasts, like three days or five days, are a wonderful way to rid the body of toxins and boost the system. They stimulate the whole metabolic process: excess weight falls off, your skin becomes clearer, your hair shines, and your eyes brighten as your intestines are cleansed and your essential organs release stored-up waste.Who can smoothie-detox?Smoothie detoxing is, for the majority of us, completely harmless, and anyone who wants better health and more energy can give it a try. That said, those with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, or cancer, as well as the elderly and pregnant women, should always consult their doctor first. How often can we detox?This depends on you, and on what other commitments you have in your life. The frequency and duration of smoothie detox can vary, but one day a week is a good starting point. What to drink during a detox? The most powerful detox smoothies are fruit based and contain citrus. These are believed to be stronger intestinal cleansers than vegetable smoothies. However, a pure fruit detox may leave you feeling a bit off. This book has a mix of fruit and vegetable smoothies. Drink plenty of filtered or bottled water and herbal teas throughout your detox day.CARROT FRESH: SMOOTHIE 5YOU NEED1 carrot A pinch of cayenne pepper 6 clementines, peeled 1 lime, peeled 2 celery stalks 1⁄4 cucumberAdd all of the ingredients to the blender with 1⁄3 to 1⁄2 cup of filtered water. Blend until smooth, then pour into a sieve set over a bowl. Help the juice through by pressing gently with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. This is good for boosting circulation and energizing the heart.
