“In order to get the body to work, you also have to get the poisons out. You have to intensively detoxify.”
– Charlotte Gerson
When we talk about “Juicing” we mean making freshly extracted juices using fresh vegetables and fruit.
Never do we use store bought juices in a juicing program. Never.
Store bought juices, even if they’re “100%” juice lack the LIVE enzymes and other nutrients we need for the detox process.
Essentially juice bought in a bottle, can or any other packaging is dead. And contains no nutritional benefit to the body.
In fact, packaged juice can be detrimental to health because it’s been stripped of it’s natural nutrients; store-bought juices are essentially a high in sugar liquid.
May we repeat that store bought juices are never (ever) to be used in a detox program.
Juicing is a powerful detoxifier/cleanser.
This is how the CHIPSA Hospital (which uses the Gerson protocol in it’s treatment of cancer patients) describes the power of juicing: (Taken from: http://chipsahospital.org/gerson-juicing/)
“Vegetable juicing addresses both toxicity and deficiencies simultaneously.
“That organic vegetables are rich in nutrients goes without saying. But their ability to detoxify the body is outstanding.
“Have you ever unblocked your drains with caustic soda? Those of you who have will know the power of this compound, sodium hydroxide, in dissolving grease to the satisfying glug of the drain as it breathes its first gulp of air. Vegetable juices work in the same way. They break down to potassium hydroxide, a more powerful cleanser than sodium hydroxide. As the cells are bathed in this alkaline cleanser they take up the potassium and release the acidity (toxicity) which can be safely disposed of by the lungs and kidneys. Vegetable juicing is the only way to achieve this.”
It is widely believed that the body, on its own, cannot manage to adequately eliminate toxins that the body releases through juicing. This is where coffee enemas become absolutely crucial.
In their FAQs section the Gerson Institute warns against detoxing, especially with juicing, without the use of coffee enemas.
They along with other health practitioners advise that the body cannot handle the huge amounts of toxins released through detox programs, such as juicing for instance, without the use of coffee enemas (to aid the detoxification process).
The following was taken from the Gerson Institute’s website gerson.org
“As the juices begin rebuilding the body and encouraging toxins to be released from the cells into the bloodstream, a great deal of stress is placed upon the liver. The liver alone, especially in cancer patients, cannot deal with a sudden influx of toxins into the bloodstream. The coffee enemas increase liver filtering, greatly aiding the liver’s ability to remove serum toxins.”
