How to Do a Juice Cleanse

There is a lot of information out there about how to do a juice cleanse (or fast), but I want to take the opportunity to share what I have learned from my experiences. I was introduced to juicing by my parents when I was a kid and have been doing juice cleansing sporadically over the past twenty years. I always knew that juicing and cleanses were good for me by the way they made me feel, but now that I am studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition,  I am learning more about why detoxification is good and how we can get the most out of  a cleanse based on our own bio individuality.
Why cleanse?
Our environment and our busy schedules can make it very difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle balance and we find ourselves looking for a way to get back to feeling healthy and energetic.  Around 70% of your energy is spent on digesting your food everyday. When we drink fresh juice from  whole fruits and veggies rather than eat them, it gives our digestive system a break, and allows our bodies to easily absorb the flood of nutrients we are taking in. This break gives our body the time to focus on healing itself and flushing out stubborn toxins and waste. Our bodies have the power to heal themselves, they just need to be given a chance to do so. If we are constantly taxing our body by feeding it unhealthy and processed foods, we are not giving it the the opportunity to keep us in optimal health. A purposeful juice cleanse can help transform your life in many different ways. Here are seven ways you could benefit from doing a  juice cleanse:

Rid your body of toxins
Jump-start weight loss and healthy eating habits
Give your digestive system a rest
Rehydrate which improves energy and skin tone
Reduce chronic inflammation
Help with autoimmune diseases
Help determine food sensitivities

A juice cleanse is a great way to break back into healthy eating habits, but it is also important to consider your motives for wanting the benefits from your cleanse. Ask yourself why you want
