In this article I will show you one of the many ways that you can approach a fruitarian detox. This one will be done with a grape juice fast, but you can also do them with watermelon fasts, papaya fasts and even bananas.
How to Make the Grape Juice:
Step 1: Get a Juicer
You will need a juice maker. I recommend using a cold-press masticate juicer because it is the most effective way to retain all the nutrients intact. This Omega Juicer is fairly affordable, very effective, easy to use and could last a lifetime. If you are on a tighter budget you can get Homeleader’s juicer, or Big Boss’s. Some other excellent options are the Omega Vertical, Breville’s Fountain and Tribest Green.
Step 2: Get Lots of High Quality Grapes
The best types of grapes for the juice fast are dark and seeded. Ideally you want to get them fresh, organic and local.
If you want to make sure that you are getting high quality grapes, then I recommend you get this brix refractometer and taste the grapes to make sure they are of excellent quality. It is very easy to use and it is worth it’s weight on gold, even though it only costs $30.
Step 3: Juice the Grapes
You can juice as much as you want, start with a smaller amount and work your way up allowing your body to adapt. You can juice the grapes with the seeds on and even with the small stems as well (they contain valuable nutrients). Make sure you wash your grapes before juicing them!
How to Take Your Grape Juice
You can drink your grape juice as often and as much as you desire. Grapes are high in antioxidants and astringent properties, which help remove toxins from the body. Eating grapes and drinking grape juice always makes for an excellent fast.
There are doctors who have put patients with all sorts of diseases on juice fasts for many months, and some people have done it for over a year! That being said, anything between 5 and 10 days will prove to be extremely beneficial and longer juice fasts are usually recommended for intense care cases.
On his website, Dr. Robert Morse shares that grapes and lemons are two of nature’s greatest lymphatic cleansers and “tumor busters.” He has seen lymphomas gone in forty-five days and stomach cancer gone in fifty-six days using fruit juice fasts in combination with herbal therapy and a raw food diet”.
About Grapes and Their Juice
Grapes and all of their parts have been celebrated throughout history by many cultures. The medicinal uses of grapes have been recommended for all types of diseases including high blood pressure, varicose veins, high cholesterol, skin rashes, urinary problems, and even cancer. They have also been popularly promoted as a natural detox to flush toxins from the body and maintain ideal internal and external health.
The popularity of grapes hasn’t changed much and their value still holds true in modern times. Studies have shown that the proanthocyanidins found in grape seeds are powerful antioxidants and resveratrol (a compound found in the skin of grapes) acts as an anti-aging miracle.
You can get all the benefits of grapes by simply juicing them and you can easily toss the whole thing into your masticating juicer machine including the fruit, seeds and stems.
