Lessons Learned

I have had a lot of successes and made a lot of mistakes throughout my years of doing juice fasts.  Along the way, there were many surprises about the physical, metal, spiritual, and social changes that come with fasting that I wish I knew prior to my first one.

As my friend said, "I don't give advice. I simply tell people what worked for me."  That's how I am approaching this page.   Perhaps these lessons that worked for me can help others. 

Please remember that these are my personal experiences. I am sure that you will have your own unique experiences and I strongly encourage you to share them.

Please note that I am not a doctor and have not had any formal medical education; therefore, do not take this information as though it is from a medical or naturopathic doctor.  These are simply observations I have made about my body throughout the years.  Please consult a physician when considering a juice cleanse.
