Raw Food Power for Summer

Summer Cleanse in the Sun With American Yogini

REMSENBURG, NY--(Marketwire - July 14, 2007) - The typical American diet, saturated in animal protein and fat can leave the body sluggish and ill. Even though our bodies do produce enzymes for digestion, raw foods contain extra enzymes that aid in the task. A raw juice fast can cleanse your system and rev up your metabolism.

The Standard American Diet, often referred to by its initials SAD, is loaded with the risk factors for cancer, heart disease, stroke, intestinal disorders. Indeed a sad state of affairs borne out by the growing rate of obesity in the US.

Through the winter months we tend to indulge in these foods, but during summer is the time to prepare our bodies for a more active lifestyle with a healthier diet. Give your body a head start this summer -- join American Yogini's Summer Cleanse in the Sun, a five day raw juice fast July 15 - 20. Learn about de-cluttering your home spaces and how to replace toxic cleaning products with wonderful natural alternatives. Enjoy delicious fresh raw juice, relaxing yoga classes round the pool and refreshing walks on the beach at the luxurious American Yogini retreat.

"The cleansing capacity of the organs of elimination, namely lungs, liver, kidneys and the skin, is greatly increased during a raw juice fast," says American Yogini, Mary McGuire-Wien. "A raw juice fast gives your digestive and assimilative organs a much-needed rest. After the fast you'll find that the digestion of food and the utilization of nutrients are vastly improved."

How does this work? Raw fruit and vegetable juices are extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and natural sugars as well as alkaline elements that help in normalizing acid-alkaline balance in the blood and tissues, as there is over-acidity in most conditions of ill health.

Another good reason to do a raw juice fast is that these juices are chock full of easy to assimilate organic minerals that help restore the biochemical and mineral balance in the tissues and cells, preventing premature ageing and the onset of disease. So cast off your sad winter diet and treat yourself to a revitalized and healthy summer.
