People talk of detoxifying their bodies all year round, but did you know that cleansing
in the spring supports the body's natural instincts to purify and renew? Early spring
is a period of bright newness - a great time to refresh yourself while tender young greens being to sprout up and around you. Spring is nature's detox and cleanse season, when you set aside the rich foods of winter for lighter options that flush out the excesses clogging the system.
In early winter and into the new year, your body craved foods like sweet cheesecake, buttery pecan pie, and rich pork chops because these heavy foods helped insulate you against the cold. As the spring gradual warms up, these dense foods might still be lingering in your fat tissue, just as gooey, thick, and heavy in the body as it was on your holiday plate. Now that the days are getting longer, your body prepares for springtime by releasing excess fats and sugars. Spring is the ideal time to shed those holiday pounds as the mechanisms of your body are prepared to cleanse. The late-winter body is restless from the cold and could be depressed from enduring winter. Detoxing helps you to break through into spring's verdant glory.
As holiday excesses melt away, the toxins
trapped in our fat tissue enter the bloodstream. The once-appetizing cheesecake, pecan pie, and holiday roasts begin to feel like overkill or even nauseating by mid-January. While we could easily devour two to three slices of cheesecake in mid-December, a sliver of cheesecake mid-February leaves behind an awful aftertaste, post nasal drip
, and mucus. Although enjoyable on New Year's Eve, strong drinks and pungent foods like spiced rum, late night double espressos, and jalapeno french fries are acidic and irritating once stored in the body. If you've noticed more headaches, frustration, sciatica, or feel achy in the joints, you are experiencing those spicy choices on their way out.
Why Detox Juice Works
Detox juice assists the body in the process of releasing fats, sugars, and toxins. Each ingredient in this recipe works to neutralize the symptoms of detoxification you may be experiencing now, while it also sets a good foundation for springtime. Beets, radishes, and garlic cleanse the liver and gall bladder - organs and tissues that are working hard to break down stored fats and sugars. The pigment that gives beets their bright color helps to neutralize the toxins from alcohol and spicy appetizers, balancing blood chemistry. The beta-carotene in carrots cools the blood. You may notice a cooling effect in the eyes, which can feel inflamed, itchy, and irritated as the body releases fats. Beta-carotene is also an important nutrient to counteract seasonal depression as it helps the skin to absorb the most from the limited sunlight during winter.
If any of your holiday indulgences left you with indigestion and reflux
, black pepper and raw garlic are powerful spices that rebuild digestive fire
. Beets and raw garlic flush and cleanse the intestines. Celery and parsley flush the urinary system and the entire body of stagnant water weight. Garlic, black pepper, and celery flush the pores of the skin, which may feel dry, irritated, or prone to breakouts as the body detoxes. The spiciness of black pepper is also a cardiac stimulant that helps metabolize toxins in tissues. It destroys mucus and is a lung tonic for mid-February sniffles, strengthening your immune system for the fluctuating temperatures of early spring.
Vegetable Juicing in Ayurveda
This simple, fresh vegetable juice quickly delivers nutrients to important organs. Your juicer acts like mechanical teeth, breaking down the cell walls of the vegetables, allowing the nutrients to reach the bloodstream quicker. Vegetable juices are easy to digest because grinding and straining removes all fiber content.
This brightly colored tonic offers the sweetness of beets and carrots, the saltiness of celery, and the peppery overtones of radishes, garlic, and black pepper. Parsley adds a refreshing touch of green. You will feel in harmony with the renewing vibrations of spring as the purifying flavors aid your body in its seasonal work.
If you don't have a vegetable juicer, chop ingredients and puree in a blender with 4c water. Strain.
Otherwise, follow these instructions to receive the greatest benefits (and most juice) from this recipe. Organic ingredients are especially important in juicing recipes because the juice is potent and highly concentrated. Scrub and wash the carrots, radishes and beets well, discard their leafy tops and do not peel them. Start with the parsley. Roll it up tight into a ball then follow it with the celery. Parsley is the driest ingredient on the list, and following it with celery which has a high water content will extract the most juice. Then add the peeled garlic, carrot, radish and beet. Once the juice is poured, finish with fresh ground black pepper. Freshly squeezed juices lose their potency after about 20 minutes. Prepare individual portions and drink immediately, preferably on an empty stomach.
Generally should be taken once a day for a week or as directed. Pay attention to any sensations in the abdomen and heart rate after drinking. Then adjust the amount as appropriate for your body.

I've heard that you should not drink straight juice, reduce with 70%water

I had my first detox juice today, first thing in the morning. I have to admit that I felt a little gaggy after drinking this down. I had some warm tea afterwards which helped emensely. I think next time I'll shower first to get that morning gook moving then have the drink.
I had a question, after having the drink I tasted the garlic mostly in the aftertaste, is this indicative of anything?
Thanks for this recipe, I've been looking for something to prep me for for a spring cleanse and here it is!

If we remove the celery, black pepper, Parsely and garlic will that make it Pitta pacifying? Is there a way to find out the energetics of the recipes after changing few ingredients?
- mohamad, Al khobar, Easter Province, 05-18-11
Is there a detox juice recipe that is good for Pitta? It seems like a lot of the food based cold/flu remedies out there aggravate Pitta. I currently have a cold and am trying to get rid of it without medicine, if you have any advice I'd love to hear it.

Try Kale Lemonade with Ginger & Apple
How long or for how many days should I drink this to detox?
- Sharon Benamou, CA, 03-02-13
Dear Sharon, It depends on the person. Some people drink it every day for a week. You can listen to your body and decide if it is still working for you.
