One of the best things you can do for your health from time to time is to detox with raw foods. Many people are getting on the raw foods program for detox because eating fresh and uncooked vegetables and fruits can do a lot to restart your body and flush out all the toxins you accumulate on a regular basis. The best thing about this is that you only have to do it from time to time. By simply getting into the habit of doing a detox you will do your body a huge favor.
The basic premise of a raw food detox is that the only kinds of raw foods you can eat are fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, fresh juices (not the pasteurized kind), dried fruit, herbal teas, sprouts and small quantities of oils that are cold-pressed like flax seed, hemp seed and olive. The difference between this and your regular raw vegetarian diet is that in raw detox you are selective of the kind of seeds and nuts you consume because there are those which can slow down your digestive process. What is usually recommended is flax because it encourages bowel evacuation.
Some people who engage in raw food detox usually set a routine for doing so. One example is consuming things in a particular order, such as prioritizing the consumption of freshly pressed juices first (for several days) before switching to other types of raw foods. Some also find that mono-eating is best for them, which is focusing on one food item at a time (for example, grapes for three days followed by oranges for the next three days and so on). Some only go for blended stuff, like smoothies and fresh raw food turned into soups so they can digest it easier and faster.

The amount of time one spends eating raw foods for detox will depend on a number of factors such as age, health and lifestyle. It is important, too, to consider other factors such as existing conditions, illnesses and serious diseases. The best thing to do is to take the advice of a nutritionist and a doctor so you can tailor-fit a raw foods detox routine which you can follow and which will not go against any pre-existing conditions you may already have. As an example or a routine, some people like to “juice detox” for as little as one to as many as seven days at a time.
For the hard core detox fanatics, they can go as much as twenty one days on the blended food approach or up to an entire month consuming just regular raw foods. It will really depend on what is available to you and what kind of goals you have set for yourself, as well as your own personal schedule. If you are just starting out, you must know that this might bring some struggle at first because it is not easy to get used to eating raw food overnight. It might also take time to show results, but trust that what you are doing is certainly something good which your body will thank you for.
Embarking on a raw food detox routine is commendable, as it is a way of recognizing your body’s need to take a break. Some insights on consuming raw foods might be necessary for the newbies, so read on ahead.
