Day 1 Juice feasting Oct 30th ,2011

Hi all,I am back.I am in need of a cleanse and juicing is my favorite way to do it. Its late and I don't have much to say except, watch me do this and see how far I get. I am almost not wanting to add a video ,however I feel this helps me get through my days in a row.


JUICE FEASTING SUPPLEMENTS AND (SUPER)FOODS
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU ARE DOING ON A JUICE FEAST is drinking 3-4 or more quarts of fresh juice each day, and supporting your organs of elimination through enemas, exercise, skin brushing, hot/cool showers, and adequate rest.
Supplements are add-ins. Some are very powerful, effective add-ins, but they are still additions. We are not supplements fanatics. Supplements are useful, particularly for re-establishing balance when less than the best diet and lifestyle has been practiced for some years.
But supplements can be pharmaceuticalized.
What we mean by that is that many, many people use supplements like they use pharmaceutical drugs: to mask symptoms or to make up for poor diet and lifestyle. There is no substitute for a healthy diet and life. We are going to teach you through the 92-Day Juice Feasting Program how to access the most abundant life possible, that does not require heavy supplementation but creates well-being through drawing in the best foods, thoughts, conversations, and experiences.
That being said, we have very carefully chosen some very specific and powerful supplements and (super)foods to add into your Juice Feast to help your body more effectively CLEANSE – REBUILD – REHYDRATE – ALKALIZE. Some of these items will break up scar tissue, others reduce inflammation, or pull agrochemicals and industrial toxins from every cell in your body, and a few are just extremely mineral dense to make up for deficiencies established over the years.
Below we are going to review what these goodies are, and the potential benefits to you. Here and in the “Juice Feasting Timeline” section, we will cover what professionals suggest as a recommended amount for these supplements and (super)foods, and the amounts that we use when Juice Feasting.

      Vitalzym: A Metabolic Enzyme
Vitalzym is a safe and effective alternative medicine formulated for individuals seeking relief from inflammation and fibrosis conditions. As we age, our body’s natural production of enzymes may slow. Supplementation with Vitalzym along with proper diet and exercise helps to maintain normal enzyme levels, balancing your body’s own repair mechanisms.* Vitalzym is a safe option for alleviating chronic pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis and fibrosis.
Vitalzym helps reinforce the body’s defense mechanism in the following ways:
• Fibrin: Normal levels help guard against the formation of fibrin.
• Blood: Enzymes help cleanse the blood of debris, maintaining blood health.
• Immune Function: Enzymes help maintain healthy immune systems.
• Healthy Circulation: Normal enzyme levels help promote blood circulation.
• Reduce Inflammation: Helps your body repair damaged tissue, such as post-operative injuries, cuts and bruises. Reduces swelling and inflammation, which often alleviates pain, as is often the case in patients with arthritis or chronic back pain.
On the Juice Feast: 3 caps each, morning first thing and evening about 1 hour before bed is what we do. This is a low dose of Vitalzym, and should be safe for everyone. However, Vitalzym does have a blood-thinning effect which could be unsafe for persons on blood thinning medications. As with all of these supplements, consult your health professional.
Natural Cellular Defense (NCD): Zeolite
Some 70,000 chemicals are being dumped into our environment, 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health. We live in a virtual sea of pollutants, and carry many of these toxins within us. They can be found even in unborn children. A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group identified 287 industrial chemicals in babies’ umbilical-cord blood, including 180 known to cause cancer and 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system.
IN MY MASTERS RESEARCH to develop the most effective nutrient dense Juice Feasting program for my students to cleanse – rebuild – rehydrate – and alkalize, I recently learned about a naturally occurring mineral called zeolite, which has a unique, negatively charged, crystalline structure. Zeolite is formed from the fusion of lava and ocean water, and combines all four elements. It has been used for more than 800 years in Asia as a remedy for overall health and well-being, and is on the FDA’s GRAS list (generally recognized as safe). Zeolite is available commercially in a purified, activated form, in Natural Cellular Defense.
The results of research on zeolite is very impressive:
1. Zeolite appears to prevent and may become an important treatment for cancer. In one study, 78 percent of the 65 participants with terminal cancer (all types) are now in complete remission for 12 months (LifeLink Pharmaceuticals, 2005).
2. It has a chelation-like effect in removing heavy metals (particularly lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic), pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, and other toxins from the body. These toxins are strongly correlated with the occurrence of a wide range of diseases, including cancers and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, autism, and dementia.
3. Zeolite also improves liver function, indirectly improving elimination of pesticides, herbicides, and xeno-estrogens.
4. Zeolite appears to block viral replication, and may prove to be a potent anti-viral and general remedy for all viruses. To date, 40 anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been healed. Preliminary anecdotal case studies suggest that it may help alleviate rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and hepatitis C as well as the common cold and flu.
5. Zeolite’s binding power was proven during the Chernobyl disaster, when tons of it were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems.
6. Zeolite creates a natural buffer in the system by establishing an optimal pH level (between 7.35 and 7.45), which in turn activates healthy brain function and a strong immune system.
7. It shows promise as an effective detoxifier for prospective mothers. Recently, at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, Zeolite was added to the protocol for the 10-day detoxification program for prospective mothers. In two women who just completed the program, toxins in their breast tissue dropped significantly – from 12 in one and 13 in the other to only two – over the course of seven days. Although anecdotal evidence and centuries of use in Asia suggest that zeolite is safe to use even during pregnancy and breastfeeding, its safe use in pregnancy has not been proven in double-blind studies.
8. According to testimonials, zeolite promotes a sense of well-being, clarity, and happiness. It appears to do this as a consequence of eliminating toxins and also, according to preliminary research, by increasing serotonin production. One study suggests that zeolite also helps relieve depression.
9. Anecdotal reports suggest that zeolite increases energy, immune function, and general health.
10. Zeolite neutralizes the formation of nitrosamines in the stomach. Found in processed meats, nitrosamines are one cause of stomach cancer. Another positive effect on the stomach, according to many anecdotal reports, is relief of acid reflux.
11. Testimonials suggest that zeolite captures triggering antigens, which cause allergies, migraines, and asthma, decreasing the rate and severity of these symptoms.
12. Zeolite directly absorbs free radicals and thus decreases free radical activity and damage to the body.
This zeolite product is a clear, tasteless, and odorless liquid that, taken daily as oral drops, supports us in living healthy, happy, and active lives in an increasingly toxic world.
For an excellent article on zeoliote, read Natural Cellular Defense and zeolite – is it the next big thing in nutritional therapies for cancer and chronic disease? by Mike Adams of NewsTarget.com
On the Juice Feast: Natural Cellular Defense: 3 drops, 4 times per day in juice or water. It is easiest just to place three drops in each juice when you make your 4 quarts in the morning! NCD can be taken for the entire duration of the Juice Feast.
Superfood: Bee Pollen Granules
Bee Pollen is my number one favorite superfood. There are several reasons we include pollen as part of the Juice Feast:
ONE: NUTRITION: Pollen is said to contain all the elements necessary for the sustenance of human life.  The San Francisco Medical Research Foundation estimates that pollen has more than 5000 different enzymes and co-enzymes, which is more than any other food in existence.  The high amount of enzymes, such as catalase, amylase, and pectin-splitting enzymes, make pollen an aid to digestion.  Some research suggests that pollen is absorbed directly from the stomach into the bloodstream.  Pollen is a vegetarian source of human-active B12, most of the B vitamins, vitamins A, C, D, and E, rutin, all the essential amino acids, the essential fatty acid called linoleic acid, fats, complex carbohydrates, simple sugars, RNA and DNA, steroid hormone substances, a plant hormone similar to a secretion of the human pituitary called gonadotrpin, 15% lecithin, and many other unknown factors.  According to research by doctors from France, Italy, and the former USSR, pollen is the richest source of protein in nature.  Gram for gram, pollen contains an estimated 5-7 times more protein than meat, eggs, or cheese.  The protein in pollen is in a predigested form and therefore easy to assimilate.  Pollen is also abundant in trace minerals, such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, manganese, potassium, copper, silicon, sulphur choline, titanium, and sodium.  These minerals are highly assimilable because they are bound organically from plant metabolism.
TWO: COMPASSION: We miss chewing anything on a Juice Feast. This is one thing that you can chew on for the entire Feast, whether it is 7 days or 92.
THREE: LIFE PRACTICE: This is a major longevity food. By eating about 1 Tablespoon per day, you will develop a strong positive bond with this food that will last for a lifetime.
When buying pollen, get it from a reputable source, organic, and preferably from a refrigerator. It should cost no more than $12-15 a pound, and can cost as little as $6-7 when bought from the beekeeper.
On the Juice Feast: 1 Tablespoon per day, maximum. Everyone who is new to bee pollen should start by placing 1 pollen granule under the tongue, to check for an allergic reaction. About 1/2 of 1 percent of the population is allergic to pollen as a food, but please check. If you are in doubt, please consult an allergist. Many people using pollen who have allergies during pollen season find a partial or complete resolution of their allergies by combining a plant-based diet and eating bee pollen as a life practice.
Superfood Concentrate: Vitamineral Green
Vitamineral Green v 3.70 is the most current evolution of a 14 year quest for excellence, nature’s original first food. It now has double the probiotics as the 3.55 version and the grasses have a finer grind for increased assimilation within the body. There was no increase in price either.

Thanks on your info. I myself need to get back to full juicing. It is the utter most awesome experience one can and should do. I think 7 days minimum but 30 plus days is best in my opinion.
