Juice fasting gives the digestive system a rest and speeds up the growth of new cells, which promotes healing. (If you have any medical problems, do not fast without medical approval and supervision.) On a juice fast, a person abstains from solid foods and drinks juice, water, and herbal teas throughout the day. "We should be drinking every half hour to an hour," advises Dr. Tony. "If we go for long periods of time without drinking anything, then a little glass of juice will not be able to sustain us. But if we are constantly drinking, the day will go by very smoothly."
Dr. Tony recommends a combination of the following:
Mix the juice from each vegetable in equal proportion and drink this combination throughout the day. A little cayenne, which increases circulation, sending blood to every corner of the body to promote healing, can be added for flavor. Lemon juice in water and different herbal teas -- some good ones are parsley and dandelion tea for the liver and kidneys and pau d'arco for blood purification -- can be added for variety. "Any herbal tea free of caffeine will be good," Dr. Tony says. "Since you need to drink on an hourly basis, you don't want to drink the same thing over and over."
