Nowadays, drinking green vegetable juices is a very popular trend. You see now people carrying around fancy bottles with green juices instead of coffee ! Cause now the healing effects of green juices revealed with lots of researches and even documentary movies like Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead about a guy who fasted for 2 months with mostly green juices and lost 37 kg’s and healed many discomforts in his body.
So, green detox is amazingly hidden healer. Purifies and detoxifies the body. Let’s see how !
How to Prepare a Green Juice?
First of all let’s take a look at how easy to prepare this miraculous drink.
You put all those ingredients to a juicer; green leafy vegetables especially dark green ones such as kale, spinach, chard, arugula, parsley, basil, dill, celery stalk, together with lemon and cucumber to dilute the drink. In order to make it tastier you can add some fruit juices like a green apple. And to make it more antioxidant you can add broccoli, ginger, beet. You can play with it according to your taste bud.
You can drink this 2-3 times in your regular day.
A Healing Story with Green Juices
While the author of the book Green for Life, Victoria Boutenko was searching what she could do to heal her husband, daughter and son with different illnesses, she discovered the raw diet (raw food). Three months later, her daughter and her husband recovered and for 7 years they were fed with raw foods. At the end of 7 years, they still had a few energy drops again and she started researching again to find what they were lacking in their nutrition. And chimps were an inspiration for her with their grean leaf sandwiches with banana. Squeezing the juice of greens and mixing it with fruit juices, she found the ideal mix and since then, the family's energy has gone through the roof. When she took these beverages to her office, her colleagues also started to drink them and their diseases began to heal.
Also again my own personal experience is after practicing 19 days green juice detox, the skin tag that subsequently emerged on my head disappeared and never came back again !
How are Green Vegatable Juices Beneficial to the Body?
Liquid Fast When you are fasting the digestion stops. The digestion of a meat dish takes 6-8 hours, it is 1-2 hours for a vegetable dish, 3-4 hours for a carbohydrate meal and half an hour for fruit. Imagine you are doing that at least 3 times every day, for months and years. So when you are fasting the body uses that time and energy to heal and cleanse itself. That is the most essential point behind the detoxing philosophy. So;
Balances the blood sugar so it cuts the appetite
Your skin and eyes get more alive
You sleep better
Your cells are rejuvenated and that gives an antiaging effect
Your immune system gets stronger
Oxygen - Energy First, there are very high levels of chlorophyll in the dark greens. Chlorophyll is a isostructural with hemoglobin, which has the task of carrying oxygen in our blood, with one molecular difference. (see the book pH Miracle for Weight Loss). Therefore, as we drink these greens, the oxygen carrying capacity of our blood increases. Oxygen means a more alkaline environment in the body and more energy. Cancer cells can grow in an acidic environment, not in an alkaline environment. Fiber There is a high percentage of fiber in greens and leafy greens water contains a high amount of calcium, magnesium and iron. Weight Loss When green detox is applied as liquid fasting practice, it can help women lose approximately 3-5 kg in 1 week and men lose 4-7 kg. . Of course, there may be exceptions according to age, height, weight, metabolism, genetics, gender, etc.
Regulating Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Green juices are balancing the blood sugar. I also personally see, among thousands of people I helped detox, with almost 3 days green juice program people’s blood pressure and blood sugar levels are regulated. Of course I don’t mean to live with green juice all the time however it means our health depends on what we do and how it changes with our actions in very short time.
How is Green Detox Practiced?
Drinking these green drinks 5 times a day, as well as supported by 1 fruit juice (apple, lemon and ginger is great) in the morning, 2 probiotics in the evening (good bacteria; constipation and flatulence prevention and strengthening the immune system) and a green superfood powder in 1-2 drinks (Consisting of different elements such as iron, calcium and vitamin C support) would make an easy detox day for you.
In addition, you can also prepare a detox soup to drink during the day, by boiling all your favorite vegetables, spices and herbs into the water and then filtering it. You can use broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, arugula, celery stalks, parsley, dill, basil, potatoes, onions, garlic, red pepper, mint.
If you get hungry, you can also make yourself a nice salad of dark greens. But then digestion begins and your cleansing will not be as powerful. Do not forget to drink plenty of water, of course. 3 liters a day is sufficient.
Wheatgrass Juice, the King of the Greens Wheatgrass juice is also one of the maing ingredients in the green detox. It was discovered by Ann Vigmore (The Wheatgrass Book), who had cancer and was told by doctors that she would die soon but she didn’t ! She was inspired by cats and dogs who were sick and chew grass and made themselves throw up to release the poison/toxins/illness in their body.
Ann Vigmore established an institute that specialized in healthy lifestyles (especially cancer and lifestyle changes): the Hippocrates Health Institute (www.hippocratesinst.org). At this center, during the 21-day life changing program, wheatgrass juice is drunk 2 times per day and green drinks drunk 3 times a day and all foods are 100% organic and raw.
What does wheatgrass juice do?
It is 70% chlorophyll. It is the blood of plants. The substance giving them their green color. At the molecular structure, it is very similar to human blood. It increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.
Has A, B, C, E vitamins. B17 kills cancer cells.
Has 92 of the 102 elements that passes from the earth to plants.
A source of calcium, iron, phosphorus and magnesium.
Relieves problems such as gas and bloating.
Gives energy. You need less sleep.
Strengthens the immune system.
Removes toxins from the blood and cells. Alkalizes; regulates the pH of the blood.
Balances blood sugar.
Increases red blood cells. Destroys bacteria in the blood.

It helps to lose weight.
How much wheatgrass should be drunk? Not to exceed 2 tea cups a day, you can drink 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in the afternoon. If you drink more you wouldn’t feel very good because it is so strong that the body is unable to absorb it. Where and How Many Days You Can Practice Green Detox?
