I got a really nice comment from a reader in France in response to my post on making an herbal colon cleanse recipe yourself. Here is the comment:
Thank you for the quality of your blog that I have just discovered (I live in France ), and especially for this post.
I have two questions :
Is it possible to fast during this cleanse? Or is it better to eat ?....
Thank you for your answer. "
What is a juice fast?
Let me share a fantastic article explaining juice fasting to you. This is an interview with Dr. Richard Schulze, a famous master herbalist, from almost ten years ago. I have edited the piece slightly for copyright reasons and to make the article easier to read. I continue with a few comments afterwards. No copyright violations are intended, and all credit is given to the original authors of this post:

I just want to say that I've done several juice fasts. My longest one was 45 days long, although I did nibble on a piece of fruit or a handful of organic raw nuts on some days, I drank a vegetable broth with some added sea salt, and drank herb teas as well.
Every time I have gone on a juice fast, I have felt amazing.
Nobody has to go on a juice fast in order to do a colon cleanse, but if you want to see some fast, eye-brow raising results, go right ahead!
Thanks again for the great question! Keep them coming! Please feel free to leave a comment if you have experience with juice fasting or just want to say hi!
