Detox and Cleansing Drink:
Traditionally for Spring and Fall
This drink is a personal favorite of mine. I use it as a detox for the liver and whole body. It is a 7 day cleanse. I start out with 6oz of the drink the first and second day . The next 5 days drink the whole contents n the morning at least half an hour before any food Juicers are not recommended, I use a ninja bullet or a blender because the pulp is a KEY component for clearing the intestines.
