Healthy Detox Ideas on Pinterest and The Ultimate Colon Cleansing Juice

Pinterest 30 Days of Pinspiration

Pinterest 30 Days of Pinspiration

It’s a new year, and many of us have made resolutions to be healthier. If you want some healthy inspiration, look no further than Pinterest.

I find it so much more fun than doing a straight google search. It is visual and stimulating, and you can quickly connect with like minded pinners, and discover all kinds of riches. I find so many wonderful new websites through this fabulous resource.

Check out my Healthy Holiday Detox Board that was featured with top brands and celebrities such as Dr Oz, Katie Couric, Paula Deen & the TODAY show, Starbucks, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Patagonia, Babble, Parent’s Magazine, Esquire, and others for 30 DAYS OF PINSPIRATION.

I have pinned all kinds of healthy ideas from green smoothies and juices, cleansing and detox recipes, workout tips, homemade skin care and cleaning products, product suggestions, favourite books, and more.

My Omega Juicer Giveaway and 3 DAY JUICE CLEANSE proved to be very popular after pinning it to this board. Participate in the cleanse at your leisure, or join our private Facebook Group January 18-20, 2013. You can sign up for free here. We will facilitate live chats, moderate discussions, and share information and experiences about juicing.

But for those of you not wanting to do a full juice fast, I wanted to share this simple spinach and apple juice “colon detox” blend, that is one of the top juicing tips I have gotten from my favourite juicing book, HEINERMAN’S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HEALING JUICES. This is still the most comprehensive guide to the health benefits of juicing I have read.

For detoxing purposes, apple juice is fantastic for cleansing the colon, and a fabulous natural remedy for constipation. The high pectin content and mineral salts have a powerful laxative effect. But if you combine equal amounts of spinach and apple juice the clearing properties are heightened. The oxalic acid in the spinach mixes with the pectin and mineral salts in the apples to create a powerful “holiday constipation” elixir that is more potent than anything else I have tried. For the best results, drink one cup every four hours for three days. Drink any more, and you better be prepared to stay near a restroom.
