This week, we play an episode of JJ Flizanes’s podcast Fit2Love, where JJ interviews our very own Allison on the fascinating topic of Juice Cleansing. After witnessing her parents’ long suffering battle with cancer, and losing them both despite the multitude of pharmaceutical drugs prescribed, Allison knew she had to dedicate her life to a better way of healing, and this is where juicing comes in. During this episode, Allison talks about juice cleanse retreats, how juicing can help detoxify and heal the body, and shares the secrets of her 5-day cleanse.
In a world that’s bombarding our bodies with toxins, from the air we breathe, the water we drink and the foods we eat, it’s vital that we find a way to nourish ourselves and protect our cells from damage. Juicing offers condensed nutrition that helps the body to eliminate the toxins and free radicals that build up over time, allowing it to regenerate and heal. Detoxing is far from just a trendy fad — in fact it’s been practiced for thousands of years, and was even endorsed by the Greek physician Hippocrates!
Referring to juicing as a spiritual cleanse, as well as a physical one, Alison and JJ explore the mechanics behind juicing’s powerful healing properties and the potential benefits it offers to those suffering from cancer. If you’re not a fan of juicing yet, you certainly will be after listening to this inspiring podcast!

Allison Melody’s Bio
Allison Melody is a dog-loving eco-entrepreneur with a passion for film, fitness and food! She is the host of the podcast, The Food Heals Podcast, the director of the film, Food Heals, and owner of Melody Productions, a video production company. And of course, Allison is Owner and Developer of Holistic Voice. Holistic Voice was formed when, at the age of 26, Allison endured the devastating loss of both her parents to cancer after long and challenging battles. Witnessing her mother and father suffer so intensely and needlessly from a cure that brought more pain than the disease, Allison soon dedicated her life to finding a better way to heal. She watched in disbelief as doctors prescribed drug after drug, observed her parents’ hair fall out, their rapidly aging faces, and their exceedingly diminishing vitality. The tragedy instilled in her an unwavering passion for nutritional medicine, and propelled her into the world of holistic health and alternative healing. Allison’s firm commitment to natural health is further evidenced by her achievement of a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology.
