1- Day Juice Restart: How I restart my body while dealing with a Chronic Illness

Lately, my body as been expressing how much it hates me! All my joints have been hurting so much I could just tell my body was about to go into a full blown flare up. Since I don’t take my meds anymore given for my Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia I, kinda of know when my body is telling me I need to do something different. My heart has been acting up lately, I have a heart murmur and a leaky valve, and every time my blood gets severely low

My heart has been acting up lately, I have a heart murmur and a leaky valve, and every time my blood gets severely low it starts to give me problems such as; anxiety, shortness of breath and light-headedness. On top of the joint pain, I don’t think I can deal with it all. So, I started thinking of a way to build my blood and rid myself of tho20170206_112352-2se horrible toxins. I was not eating so well since my hormones were still going nuts after the miscarriage. I search on the internet for juices like Suja juices and others, but I wanted to do it now. I went down to my local Albertson’s and they had a few new drinks from Bolthhouse farm so I decided to create my own juice restart.

I would like to share what I did with everyone else! It is as follows: ***I drink spring water through the day, no less than half my body weight and Smooth move tea by Traditional Medicinals 

Morning- First I made a cup of hot apple(with the mother) cider vinegar tea; made with 8oz of hot water, slice of lemon and a tsp of raw honey.

7 A.M.- Bolthouse Farm Juice (Berries & Green Veggies) it consists of; 2 cups of cucumbers, 1 cup of grapes, 3/4 banana, 24 blueberries and 1 cup of spinach.

9 A.M- Bolthhouse Farm Juice (Daily Green) – this is grosss! beware it consists of; 1 1/2 apples,1 3/4 cucumber, 1/3 celery, 1/2 kiwi, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup of kale, spinach & romaine and a squeeze of lemon.

11 A.M- Bolthouse Farm Juice (1915) it consists of; apple, romaine, cucumber, spinach, kale, and lemon.

1 P.M-  Bolthouse Farm Juice (100% Carrot) I love carrot juice so much, I couldn’t pass this one. This consists of 11 1/2 of juiced carrots, YUM!

3 P.M- Bolthouse Farm Juice (1915) consists of; Beets, carrots, orange and lemon, this taste just like it was from a garden.

5 P.M- I did another Bolthouse Farm Juice (Berries & Green Veggies) it consists of; 2 cups of cucumbers, 1 cup of grapes, 3/4 banana, 24 blueberries and 1 cup of spinach.

7 P.M- instead of juicing I made me a green salad mixed with cabbage; for dressing, I mixed up olive oil, dash of salt, and squeezed half a lemon.

I can say after doing this, I feel a lot better. My healthy choices don’t stop here, I will continue to cleanse my body and make better choices in the kitchen. I feel that healing your gut is always the first step. What you put into your body can either make you better or slow you down.

Stay Blessed!

I am a Christian Young Lady, who happens to deal with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I want to make one thing clear I no longer take my meds but, my body is not healed from this illness but in remission with the Grace of God. My mind is healed and I don't have the same thinking toward my illness. I believe I, can be in remission for how long as I want if I take care of my body. I want to help spread Gods goodness and to also help ease chronic illness pain by fueling your body with healthy foods and good exercise. Everyone has their own pace with chronic illness, but I am here for you to support you with the help of God.

  1. You’re incredible and power to you! I too suffer from chronic illness and just recently started a juice cleanse to try and help myself. I hope I can experience success as you have.
