I have no doubt that green juices and herbs can help the body heal as well. However like everything there are issues with green fasts. Most likely at some point you will have to add colonics due to the lack of fiber in the juice. It is very possible to become dependent on colonics. Years ago I did a series of colonics and it drasticly impaired my digestion. I hear good and bad testimonials about green cleanses. Most of the bad testimonials have to do with digestive issues after an extended juice/herb cleanse. But some claim it "healed" their digestion as well!!
Dr Rick Dina suggests drinking juice all day with a light fruit/and or salad meal in the evening to flush the juice deposits out.
Anne Osborne suggests sticking to one fruit for an extended period of time. While loren lockman says that it is dangerous not getting an aray of nutrients by doing an island and to just stick with sweet juicy fruits as a cleanse. He also claims that he has seen many people get blood tests after the fast only to find stabalized vitamins and mineral levels, so according to him the body was difficient only because of an absorbtion issue in the body that is healed during a water fast.

There are so many options and I think the best solution is not to be so dogmatic about one over the other and to do as much research as possible and whichever method you try, do a little bit at a time to see how your body reacts and do it the safest way possible.
