Juicing diet systems have become an integral part of the dietary advice given by the mainstream media, as this method of purifying the body becomes increasingly well known. It is important to realize, though, that not all of the advice given in the media is accurate or warranted, and that there is a lot of misinformation being spread by those with vested interests.
Juicing is a valid method for trying to deal with complex health conditions and trying to improve overall health, but it is not a miracle cure for anything. There are many possible applications of juicing for health from the simplest attempt to overcome a temporary condition of heartburn to the creation of a complete raw food diet which you intend to follow for the rest of your life.
The longer a juice regime is going to be followed, the more thought will need to go into it as any dietary regime which is unbalanced or which is lacking in certain nutrients can cause problems if indulged in for long enough. The simple short term diet aimed at a specific health condition needs relatively little thought, as it is usually spelled out for you.
The most common use of raw juice in combating a temporary condition is in fighting acid reflux and heartburn, and even this needs to be planned properly. Eating the wrong type of fruit or drinking the wrong type of juice can actually make the condition worse, even though the juice itself may be healthy and full of useful nutrients.
Orange and pineapple juice, for example, are acidic in their natural form and the body will not have time to deal with them before they react with the already over-acidic stomach and cause acid burn. Mild juices such as apple juice, pear juice or grape juice will help to reduce the acidic condition.
