"My top 3 favorite detox juicing recipes:"

  • Colon Cleanser
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 green apples
  • 1 bulb of fennel
  • a thumb-sized piece of ginger root

"This recipe makes one portion, multiply the quantity if juicing in large amount. This juice combo looks simple yet it is very effective for moving bowels. Fennel and ginger root are added as colon healers as they help improve and balance a healthy intestinal flora that is so important for a strong immune system and an improve overall health. If heavily constipated, drink two or three times a day with plenty of water."

  • Liver Support
  • 3 medium-sized beetroots
  • 1/4 lemon with peel

"Beetroot is one of the best foods for liver cleansing and support. This juice combo is also very helpful as an anti-inflammatory juice that may help reduce pains (headaches, aches and pains in joints). Add some lemon juice to enhance the taste of beetroot juice, and at the same time super boost the nutrients absorption by up to five times!"

  • Heavy Metal Detox
  • 8 leaves of large kale
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/4 pineapple
  • 6 ribs of celery
  • a bunch of cilantro
  • a thumb-sized piece of ginger root

"This is one of my favorite juice recipes that I use when juice fasting. It has a combination of all the right nutrients that will help eliminate silent inflammation in the body and gently detoxify heavy metal in the tissues for removal from the body."
