The purpose of juicing, the Ayurvedic way, is not as a tool for weight loss but rather as an important cleaning method. However, one must remember that everything in Ayurveda needs to be done with moderation and should become a lifestyle promoting well-being.
According to Ayurveda, there is nothing that can be classified as completely good or completely bad for any person, throughout their lives. What is good and what is bad keeps changing and it also varies according to the season.
Juicing is not an exception to this rule. Some people have great benefits to derive from juicing at certain times, whereas it might be harmful to others at other times. The fundamental idea behind this disparity is that Ayurveda bases itself on individual constitutions of people and the qualities of each food, as well as the seasons.
