Fasting is Good for the Joints

One morning I woke  up with pain in almost every joint.  I asked my husband if he ever had joint pain. "No".  He is a few years older than me.  So achy joints do not necessarily come with age.  I decided to adopt my husband's behavior of fasting.  My husband takes a fast for one day once a week and has done this for nearly 20 years. 

I decided I would only drink purified water and home prepared vegetable juices for one day.  I selected a day when I wouldn't miss exercise classes or have strenuous work.  Guess what?  My joints started to feel better!

A vegetable juice fast is probably safe for most people but I recommend you talk with your health provider first.
