Juicing for health - My C32 Healthy Juice #1

I see life and our overall wellbeing as a complex jigsaw puzzle and ‘stressed pieces’ don’t fit together. The key to ‘life’s puzzle’ is to find and fix our Emotional, Physical and Environmental stresses so our pieces can connect again. That’s why I say life is a journey filled with happiness when all our jigsaw pieces work together – The ‘Big 3’ Stress Solutions Puzzle...

So what does the 'Big 3’ Stress Solutions Puzzle look like when it comes to C32 Healthy Juice #1? 

 

Since we live in a world where our soil is starting to be depleted of the vital nutrients, juicing is a way to help boost the body in order to maintain optimal health. Here are just a few reasons this juice can do wonders for your health! 

It’s a great way to reduce your physical stress and environmental stress as it helps the body get rid of things it doesn’t want. How you ask let me give you some analogies.

 

Are you a beer drinker?

If you are chances are you go to the local pub for a beer or two? Beer comes out the beer taps through the ‘beer lines’ which are attached to the keg. You need to ‘flush’ your beer lines every few weeks otherwise the beer lines build up with yeast, mould and bacteria. Well the body is the same when you analyse it. We consume an array of various things which can build up in our bodies therefore we need to ‘flush’ our internal lines. By consuming juice, you are helping your body release and expel its environmental stress build up. Your body is a very smart and complex system that naturally wants to heal itself it just needs your help to do so.

 

Are you a Mechanic or do you know anything about cars?

Most of us know the importance of changing the oil in our cars because over time the oil that lubricates the engine needs replacing. This is because engines have moving parts and rub against each other causing friction which creates heat. Over time the oil breaks down and wears out thus it needs replacing. We also know cars need fuel/gas/petrol because they can’t run on empty. Our bodies are moving, twisting, turning, and are on the go constantly. Therefore, we need to ‘refuel’ and give our bodies the ‘oil’ they need to keep going in order to maintain tip top health, which we can do when we consume drinking juice.
