Raw juice fasting is not a deprivation
Remsenburg, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2007
There is the natural tendency to cast off winter blues and feel renewed when spring comes around. According to Chinese medicine, and now confirmed by the science of Chronobiology, the liver is most active in the detoxification process during spring. If you've heard the term 'body clock" you've heard of Chronobiology. It's the field of science that studies cycles and biological rhythms in living organisms. Recent breakthroughs in this field reveal that a correctly timed detox can produce remarkable results. One of the most effective ways to get these results is with a raw juice fast, advises American Yogini Mary McGuire-Wien.
"Researchers at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine found that the body optimizes the production of weight regulating hormones and biochemicals as the days grow longer and we're exposed to more sunshine," explains McGuire-Wien, who hosts raw juice fasts at her luxurious retreat in New York State and offers advice and coaching about juice fasting on the web at http://www.americanyogini.com "The fact that the liver is at its best in spring makes it easier for the body to revitalize your internal systems and detoxify."
With findings coming out daily about the health risks associated with exposure to harmful and toxic substances in our environment and food supply, it makes good sense to cleanse and detoxify the body on a regular basis. Whether one chooses to do a juice fast for health reasons or to lose weight, one remarkable element is the immediate and often dramatic loss of stored body fat.
This loss of body fat can have multiple health benefits since much of the toxicity in the body is stored in our body fat. Metabolizing the fat forces the toxins into the blood stream where the body processes them to be eliminated.
"Raw juice fasting is not a deprivation," remarks McGuire-Wien. "In fact it's exactly the opposite: a rich and regenerating process for the body and the mind. A raw juice fast retreat will not only rest your digestive system and other filtering organs such the kidneys and the spleen, but also give your skin a rest from toxic chemicals and cosmetics"
The retreat includes workshops on how to make nourishing, fresh skincare, ways to de-clutter your home spaces and how to replace toxic cleaning products with natural alternatives.
The next raw juice fast retreat begins May 6, 2007.
