Juicing or cleansing practices** are techniques for detoxing. **
There are dozens of different protocols you can follow to perform a detox, though not all are created equal when it comes to safety or efficacy, and they don't necessarily need to include juicing.
The effects of modern life — pollution, poor dietary choices, contaminants in our food and water, stress or a sedentary lifestyle — can compromise the body’s ability to effectively detox the way it’s supposed to.
The result of this toxic internal “congestion” is that we gain weight, develop diseases and lose our natural energy and vitality.
While it’s normal to feel somewhat fatigued during the first few days of detox, most experience more energy and sleeping better once they’ve adjusted. Mostly, detoxing shouldn't make you feel tired or sick.
Part of the reason for this is that your body is doing less work digesting, which means you’re getting the benefit of that saved energy.

Everything you eat goes to your liver and it determines what to do with the components of what you've ingested:
If it's something useful the liver sends it out into circulation, but if it's not immediately usable or could be harmful, your liver has enzymes to neutralize it and send it off as waste to be removed from the body through urine, mostly.
