The safest, most effective therapies for optimal health!

If beet juice cleanse is a detox protocol you are considering, perhaps my research and personal experience may be helpful to you.
Beet juice cleanse is one of the more formidable raw detox regimens I have tried.
Certain health issues may benefit from a diet of fresh raw vegetables and fruits.
HOWEVER, I have found through many years of in-depth experimentation that there can be a possibility of negative side effects (and I don't mean detox reaction). My beet juice cleanse experience brought to light an important downside to consider when contemplating ANY plant-based diet regimen.
I have done dozens of raw protocols of both vegetables and fruits over a period of about four decades.
My staple drink was carrot juice - a big glass of it most days. Forty years ago, even carrots from a regular supermarket were safe. I remember the very first carrot juicing I did with such carrots. The juice was so vibrant and the pigment of the carrots so intense that it had an iridescent sheen. The taste was heavenly sweet. No other flavoring was needed!
As the years passed, supermarket carrots lost their flavor, taste and most importantly were no longer safe. Switching to organic carrots, I again found superb flavor and color. I drank so much it gave me a 'tan' in the middle of winter - a friend asked me if I had just come back from the Bahamas!
I also juiced apples and mixed in powdered basil and sage, also cayenne pepper. A stiff drink of raw apple juice laced with cayenne made if possible to dive into water so cold it burned, and swim laps for over quarter hour!
Many other combinations were tried using beets, celery, wheatgrass, ginger, citrus and even weeds!
Carrot quality and taste continued to decline. Even organic local carrots were rarely a pleasure to juice solo, so I started adding beet juice to sweeten the drink - and a little raw cream to make it mellow and cut the harsh and bitter taste that now was part of the carrot flavor.
Beet juice cleanse was my latest protocol. Below are some articles for your information and enjoyment (beware my sense of humor)! ;-)
