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!
