New to Juicing? May 16, 2015 06:12 4 Comments
New to juicing? Juicing has been used for years and it is easy to find people who claim to be healed of cancer by drinking fresh raw juice everyday. Juicing is the foundation of some alternative cancer curing protocols.
Selecting a juicer is the first step! There are many juicers available on the market today but not all of them are appropriate. The two types of juicers recommended are masticating juicers or grind and press juicers which Roots Juices use. These are also the most expensive to buy, cheaper juicers are centrifugal juicers and the blades whirl at such rates of speed that the juicer heats up and kills vital enzymes.
THE POINT OF JUICING IS TO FILL THE BODY WITH LIVING ENZYMES! For this, Juicers like the Champion and Norwalk work the best! The type of produce used also makes a big difference. Fruits and vegetables must be ORGANIC. Fruits should be used sparingly, for drinking large quantities of fruit juice is not recommended since fruits contain a large amount of natural sugars. Assembling, juicing and cleaning equipment is a lot of work. Best results are achieved when the body receives a constant supply of living nutrients from fresh juice to heal itself. Juicing alone isn’t enough for cancer treatment. The entire diet should be cleaned up and harmful habits such as cigarettes and booze should be stopped. While juicing for cancer, one may choose to consume only fresh living each day or add other wholesome foods to their diet. It goes without saying that other foods consumed should also be organic and free from chemical additives. A huge plus from juicing is that the digestive organs can rest due to the lack of work caused by consuming solid food, in which case solid food should be limited. As always, it is best to seek a physicians opinion before starting a juice diet. Nutritional needs need to be met so that your body may continue to run effectively. In most cases, juicing works well with a traditional treatment. Juicing overall is a lifestyle that every person seeking great physical health should consider adding into there everyday routine.

Master Cleanse vs. Juice Cleanse May 16, 2015 06:11 1 Comment
We get may clients that come to us and say “I’ve completed the master cleanse, now I think I’m ready to try your cleanse!” Honestly, sometimes this rubs us the wrong way. We started this company not to compete with the traditional fad cleanses and diets that have come and gone, but to show Dallas that cleansing can be healthy and beneficial in the long run. Essentially, our cleanses are the original; humans have been drinking fruit and vegetable juice for thousands of years. It is healthy, nutritious, detoxifying, and cleansing. All without sacrificing much of anything! Personally, I like to think of our detox & cleanse kit as more of a “cleansing nutrient flush” rather than the definition that is commonly associated with the word ‘cleanse’.
What’s wrong with the master cleanse concept? We welcome you to research this yourself, there are plenty of articles arguing for both sides of this topic. Our founder – Brent Rodgers, has always been against these types of cleanses. As you may know this cleanse consists of just water, a little lemon, and some processed maple syrup. People end up starving themselves for two weeks – forcing their bodies to pull energy from lean muscle mass before the fat. And as soon as the cleanse is completed they fall back on all the same unhealthy habits and ruin any progress that they’ve made.

So what’s better – A juice cleanse or the master cleanse? A juice cleanse floods your cells with nutrients. It provides your body with all of the “good stuff” that it needs to thrive and heal itself. We welcome you to educate yourself and make your own decision! And we are always available to chat with you!

Great tips for boosting your health and appearance in 2013!
Tip #2: A green juice cleanse
Tired of looking at celebrities and wondering how on earth they manage to have such a youthful appearance — despite their heavy work schedules? Well, wonder no more because we’ve found five ways to make 2013 your year.
1. Start Cleansing
Ever wonder how celebrities such as Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian have such flawless skin? Although everyone can’t afford to get those pricey microdermabrasion treatments from spas, we have found the next best solution. On a daily basis, women wear makeup and eventually it leads to a lot of build-up on the face. This build-up can damage the skin by causing breakouts or dry skin. The Clarisonic helps to remove dirt, oil and left-over makeup from pores without using any harmful chemicals. In fact, unlike other cleansers the Clarisonic can be used twice a day and can help improve your skin texture within a matter of days.
2. Juice It
One of the most popular resolutions made every year would be to be healthy and have a healthy diet. Although many prefer fruit smoothies, green smoothies are often more beneficial to the human body. There are numerous reasons to include them in your diet; not only are they very easy to make, but they are also highly nutritious. Green smoothies are full of vitamins, iron, protein, fiber and antioxidants. Also, by having a green smoothie bright and early in the morning, your body is given the nutrition that it needs — and within a matter of time it will return to its overnight detoxification and slimming mode which takes place during the early morning

2 pressed juices a day helps to lose belly fat May 16, 2015 06:09
I’m not sure at what point I began to get fat. It was sometime in living in sunny Southern California. Where everyone is beautiful and it seems that no one works and everyone has a lot of money. How was I living in West Hollywood around the most beautiful people in the world and gaining weight. I was exercising, eating healthy, active, but depressed. Part of it could have been my dead end job or just overall unhappiness in my life. I later found our the primary reason I was stacking on the belly fat was because of my lack of digestion. Even when eating healthy I was always bloated and always had a stomach ache. I was sensitive to EVERYTHING!
As it turns out I had no enzymes left in my body. My body was no longer breaking down food the way it used to so instead of digesting it my body stored it in a muffin top around my ass and my waist. I went from a size 32 to a size 36, YES THIRTY FREAKING SIX WAIST! UGHHHHH. Nothing would fit around me.
I remember waking up one night with horrible stomach pains and drawing the line saying that is it . I WILL FINALLY DO SOMETHING about my stomach issues. So I got online in the middle of the night and read about enzymes. The importance of enzymes in digestion . I immediately started juicing, and pressed juicing to be exact because of the many many enzymes that help break down food. Within 2 weeks my waist started slimming and my stomach aches were completely GONE! Yes Gone Here I am 8 months later. I drink 2 juices a day. I have lost 25 lbs and have more energy than I have ever had in my life. I feel great and my body is the fittest it has ever been.
Sure pressed juices have been known to cure cancer and help people lose weight during a fast but I think we are just on the cusp of something so great, so cutting edge, that could vastly change our physical bodies as we now know them. I’ll post some before and after pictures. One year ago and today!
How Stress Messes With Your Stomach May 16, 2015 06:08
The enteric nervous system, or the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, is often referred to as the “second brain.” That’s because much like your brain, the GI tract relies on the same types of neurons and neurotransmitters to complete specific functions, as well as maintain communication with the central nervous system. Have you ever noticed that fluctuations in your emotions cause a reaction in your stomach? You may feel butterflies with love, nausea with anxiety, or gut-wrenched with fear. This is because the brain has a direct effect on the GI system.
This also means that when you’re experiencing stress—whether chronic stress or ongoing tension from small daily stressors—your gastrointestinal health is impacted. Psychological stress can impair contraction of the GI tract, induce inflammation, and increase susceptibility to infection.
The GI tract/brain connection is so intense, in fact, that research has shown that patients who seek therapy for stress and mental anxiety see a reduction in GI symptoms. The reverse has also been shown: Changes to your diet, such as eliminating certain foods, can improve your mood and energy levels.
Is it stress?
Chronic upset stomach, irritable bowels, and other unpleasant symptoms of the digestive system are the gut’s natural reaction to stress. To minimize the damage to your mental and physical health, you need to identify the source of your discomfort and when it began.
Then, try these strategies for reducing stress:
- Meditation. Try quiet meditation exercises, join a yoga class, or simply find a quiet time and space to unwind. Be sure to take quiet time for yourself on a weekly basis.
- Journal. Sometimes you just need a space to “let it all out.” The pages of a diary can be a great way to rid yourself of stress and free your mind and body from what’s bothering you.
- Make a list. Sometimes managing stress is as simple as writing down and prioritizing what needs to be done.
- Therapy. Talking to a trusted advisor or professional counselor can help ease stress.
Is it diet?
If the stress in your life seems to be under control, yet you still suffer from moodiness, feelings of anxiety, or lack of energy, it may be related to food sensitivities. Food sensitivities are different from food allergies, in that the reaction isn’t as severe and often doesn’t manifest itself for up to three days. Processed foods, gluten, dairy, peanuts, alcohol, soy, sugar, and artificial sweeteners are the top culprits of GI discomfort and diet-related mental anguish.
To determine the source of your GI distress and related symptoms, try an elimination diet. Develop a healthy eating plan that eliminates food items over the course of three to four weeks. This should sufficiently rid your body of the harmful effects each food may be having on your GI tract.
After the 21 to 28 day period, start adding back each food item one at a time, watching for discrepancies in your mental and physical state. Reactions may include—but aren’t limited to—mental fogginess, fatigue, depression, abdominal cramping, upset stomach, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or acne. If effects aren’t observed after one week, the added food item is a safe part of your intake, and you should choose the next food on the list to add back to your diet. If effects are observed, cut that item out of your regular dining rotation.
Once you’ve finished the elimination diet, you can devise a balanced diet eliminating the foods that cause you distress. Removing these foods from your diet will enhance your energy, improve weight management, boost mental clarity, and may even help you sleep.
The Best move to lose your belly fat May 16, 2015 06:08
A note from Chris Hudson:
“Spring break, pool parties, summer vacation…it’s all right around the corner which means it is flat belly time!
Diet, cardio, and core work will get you started but there is one thing people always forget and something I’ve been telling my clients and students for years! You will NEVER have a flat stomach if you have tight hip flexors. Don’t want to stretch for flexibility or mobility? Hey, that’s on you, but if I told you it would get you that flat belly….”well maybe I can spend a few minutes on the mat.” Check out the following article:”
Working hard but you just can’t lose that stubborn fat on your tummy? Doing lots of crunches and endless hours on the treadmill to try to get rid of it?
Here’s a little secret: When you sit all day — as almost all of us do — your butt muscles turn off and your hip flexors (the muscles on the front of your hips) get short and your abdominal muscles stop working. This causes your hip bone (pelvis) to tilt forward which puts stress on your back — causing, yes, lower back pain — but it also pushes your belly out. You can be adding to this scenario with exercises like crunches and running on the treadmill creating shorter and shorter hip flexors. So you look like you have a gut, even if you don’t have an ounce of fat! This is also the case if you are spending a lot of time in spinning classes which are a huge culprit of tightening the hip flexors and creating this pooch.
Look at yourself sideways in the mirror. Check to see: Does the top of your hips tilt forward, creating a pooch, because your pelvis is being pulled forward by your hip flexors and your core and glutes are not engaged and working to flatten out your center? Or are your hips underneath your center with a flat tummy?
I have an exercise to fix the former — it’s called the hip extension, and all you need is your bodyweight. This exercise will stretch out your hip flexors, engage your core and switch on your butt muscles, which will lead to your hips getting into the right position to flatten out your pooch! The Best move to lose your belly fat
Position: Lie on your back, on the ground, arms outstretched at 90 degrees from the body. Bend one knee so the foot is flat on the floor as it would be in a sit-up.
Movement: Keeping the other leg straight and in line with the trunk at all times, drive down with the bent knee foot, causing the body to lift. The top of the movement is when the straight leg is in line with the thigh of the bent knee, which is about a 45 degree position. Make sure the body is straight at this point and both hips are even.

Guest Blogger Crystal: My Favorite Cleanse May 16, 2015 06:08
Spring and Summer are right around the corner! It’s beautiful outside today and I can’t wait for the warmer weather to arrive! Kicking your winter hibernation habits and getting back into pool party shape can be a difficult thing. A Roots Juices cleanse is the perfect “jump start.” Trying one of the many refreshing flavors would be a great addition to any diet. I have found that one huge benefit to drinking at least one fresh pressed juice per day is that my energy level has increased, I feel more alert and not to mention healthier! Juicing is also a great source of your daily fruits and vegetables, who doesn’t need that? We do cleanses per day – so if you aren’t sure you want to commit to a full 3 or 5 day cleanse you can always just try out a single day. You can also find us at tastings and samplings around town, we have a really fun one coming up at Mockingbird Station Saturday the 23rd at 9:30AM. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you! My favorite cleanse is a juices cleanse.
