Many people have heard of a system known as juice therapy. It is very important to emphasize that juice therapy is not a diet, but rather a system that helps us to integrate several healthy habits into our lifestyle, with innumerable benefits. Juice therapy can be structured in different ways, depending on the desires of each individual. It can either be structured as a specific program, or, can be taken more calmly, by simply incorporating the juices of fruits and vegetables into our daily life.
The first step for people who are interested in starting with this marvelous habit, is to get a Juicer, which can be found at electrical appliance stores. Juicers are beneficial because they remove the pulp from the juices and leave the liquid of the fruits and vegetables, which is the nectar of life. If you do not have a juicer, or it is not possible to purchase at the moment, a blender can be used with a fabric bag to help separate the juice and the pulp. The same fabric bags that are used to make soy milk and almond milk can be used.
