Pulp Kitchen owner Marie Crawford discusses Juice Cleanses which is when someone abstains from eating solid food for a period of time and simply drink fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices. The reason for this is because over time our digestive system can get clogged with excessive waste and when we give our digestive system a break it gives it a chance to eliminate the waste. The second reason is because it gives your liver a break to detoxify. Many people who try cleanses generally do so for about three days and report feeling lighter, healthier, have more energy and clearer skin. You definitely want to check with your health care practitioner before starting any juice cleanse to ensure that it will work for you.
