The following excerpts are from “How To Go Raw” by Matt Monarch, Raw Food Educator and Author of the book “Raw Spirit” available at http://www.RawSpirit.org.
Juicing is not the same thing as blending. Juicing is when you use a juicer to extract the juice from the fiber and pulp of green veggies such as romaine spinach, lettuce, kale, parsley, and dandelion. All the fiber is discarded and you are left with Vitamin & Mineral Rich liquid. This is the best way to get vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable form. Your body just loves it, especially the Green Juices. Green Juices are actually a beauty secret. I can tell when someone juices greens. Their skin is shiny, glowing and beautiful. Doing colonics and drinking Green Juices is the ultimate beauty secret!
In addition to getting vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable form, the juices also act as very powerful alkalizers. Green juices lower your pH from a more Acidic to a more Alkaline state. For those eating animal protein, I recommend drinking a veggie juice before the meal. Foods are synergistic, meaning they can balance each other out.
Veggie juice will counteract the acidic animal protein and put the body back in balance.
If you do three things – eliminate certain foods from your diet completely, colon hydrotherapy/colonics, and juicing – your body will respond immediately and you will notice. It is not an easy process emotionally or socially. I recommend taking it one food group at a time. The goal is to get rid of those refined sugars, processed starches, red meat, and cow’s milk products, and don’t overdo the animal protein or other processed foods. On a good intermediate diet, you can be very healthy. You can also take it to the next level. There is no rush. You can eliminate one food group at a time, taking months or years for each group. Make it as slow of a process as you need. Just don’t cheat. I recommend getting Raw Spirit so you can view Dr.Bisci’s detailed IntermediateDiet. Raw Spirit is available at www.RawSpirit.org.
