One of the things about fasting and why I have always been an avid faster is that when you are fasting, you are not depleting your enzymes savings account; and if you are drinking raw juices while you are fasting, you have one-way traffic going in. Therefore, because you have stopped the outgo, you are building up that storage reserve.
For the first 10 days after a juice fast, your digestive system feels clean, you feel light and alive, you feel vibrant, and your energy comes up. That would not be the outcome the first time you fast or if you come off the fast wrong; but if you do it right, that will be how you feel, because you are building up that storage reserve, and that’s what’s important.
We also deal with petrochemicals—aspirin, Tylenol, and ibuprofen—which are inhibitors of enzyme production.
Why do most people take an aspirin? They have a headache. Why do they have a headache? Because they have an enzyme deficiency. What does taking an aspirin do? It stops enzyme production and blocks enzymes from working in your body. Is there something wrong with this picture?
How many people take Tylenol because they have a migraine? Migraine headaches indicate that you have a hormonal problem, a structural problem, an enzyme problem, or all three; so Tylenol, ibuprofen, and aspirin are not the answer for your problem.
