More Tips Below! Many of you have asked me for some tips on how to get started with juicing and make it work, so here they are. :) Juicing has been very helpful to me, not only in terms of physical health but mental and emotional resilience and stamina. I hope this information is useful to you. Happy juicing! Basics: Start at the bottom: get your water intake up before you even start juicing. If you're going to buy a juicer, try to invest in a good one. They will make better juice and be easier to clean. Go slow! Don't throw yourself into it like a fad diet or you will end up in over your head and get discouraged. Start with just one juice a day and then increase. Store multiple servings for a day in a container in the fridge. When you have gotten into the daily habit, you might want to try doing a 2 or 3 day juice fast, or a having just juice, fruit, vegetables and other raw foods for 2 or 3 days. In addition to this, I would recommend that you get a hair analysis and see a naturopath before you start to make sure you you are not inadvertently juicing things that contain minerals you already have excesses of. Some plants like parsley and dandelion are highly medicinal but that doesn't mean the more, the better. Parsley is very potent and in large quantities can be toxic. Celery has diuretic properties. A bit of celery might be good but if you drink large amounts of it and you find yourself constantly running to the washroom, you will know why. If you drink large amounts of carrot juice, your skin might take on an orange hue, especially in your palms. It's good to vary what you put in your juice and use many different fruits and vegetables. Try to use plenty of vegetables because they are very alkalizing.
