Are you ready to start the New Year off fresh, clean and balanced? Because digestive health is the basis for whole body health, it’s worthwhile to utilize juice fasting protocols and herbs that cleanse each part of your digestive tract. At one point or another, repairing your digestive health will be the only way for you to restore balance to your body, so let’s get started!
This is one of my favorite recipes from my alma mater, The Juice Guru Institute. The phytonutrients in this blend have an amazing ability to heal digestive issues. It also provides an abundant amount of protection against disease including breast, prostate and colon cancers. Remember to thoroughly clean your fruits and veggies before juicing. Helpful tip: soaking fruits and vegetables in highly alkalized, ionized water can effectively help remove pesticides.
