To accelerate detoxification and healing, we remove fat from the diet. Juicing and blending foods saves the body digestive energy channeling more energy for healing and detoxification. Dr. Norman Walker recommended a sugar food (carrot, beet, apples) and green-leafed vegetables in nearly all of his curative juice recipes. He did not quite understand the problems with hybrid foods (foods were not as hybridized in his day as they are now), but he did understand the power of juice fasting! He understood the detoxification power of chlorophyll foods and natural sugar foods with no fatty foods included.
Fatty Fruits, Nuts Coconuts, Seeds
If you are doing an extended juice fast (15 days +), you may want to include small portions of cold-pressed olive or flax oil in with your drinks to provide the body with necessary fat.
My colleague Roe Gallo, a fruitarian and natural healer, has a working theory that one should continue on a juice fast cleansing program until all excessive body fat is eliminated. She believes, as do I, that body fat is where most of the body's poisons are stored. In her book Perfect Body she presents testimonies of her clients whom she has helped heal of major illnesses, including breast cancer, through juice fasting.
