Hello guys and gals! Welcome to Juicing Journal!
My name is Zoey Garcia; I’m a full-time nurse and a part-time health and wellness blogger. When I’m not caring for patients, I enjoy sharing my passion for juicing, smoothies, and other nutrient-boosting drinks.
As someone in the medical field, my goal for JuicingJournal.com is to provide evidence-based information. I’m revamping the website, which will include updating all my blog posts to meet higher standards of medical information.
Juicing has a bad rap among medical professionals, mainly because of juice detox or juice fasting or juice cleanse, whatever you want to call it.
It’s a fact that there are no studies that will support the safety and efficiency of any form of detox or cleansing diet. We have our liver, kidney, lungs, and skin that work 24/7 to eliminate the toxins in our body.
Restricting our diet is not beneficial at all. It can lead to serious eating disorders in the long run.
The only thing that we can agree on is taking in fruits and vegetables in the form of juice or smoothie is beneficial to our overall health. Instead of an apple a day, why not a glass of green juice or perhaps a cup of green smoothie?
The type of juicing that I advocate is juice feasting, or we can also call it juicing for health, or drinking freshly-pressed juice to supplement a healthy diet.
JuicingJournal.com is a work in progress.
Stay tuned 🙂
