it is excellent.
especially if one goes on a juice fast as then the energy going to digestion goes to healing instead and people have been cured of many diseases.
we need enzymes as we just have a limited number and they are only found in raw foods. Since we do not eat raw meat and grains (unless sprouted), this leaves just eggs, and produce and raw nuts and seeds to get our enzymes from. Eat some produce or drink some prior to the meals and this saves on your lifetime supply.
with juices, it is important to drink them within 15 minutes as after this the enzymes dissipate. Make it fresh and do not store in the refrigerator..you can but you lose one of the most vital part. These enzymes in raw produce (also found in green tea) also digest the protein coating surrounding each cancer cells and this allows the immune system to kill it. since most people have some cancer cells, (but the immune system usually kills them), these enzymes help keep cancers from taking roots. Miracles have come from it. Read Ann Frahms book the cancer battle plan..she was given a one in a million chance to survive..she did recently succumb but it was 10 years after her death sentence was supposed to take place.
All five programs I have heard of where there is anecdotal evidence of healing of cancer that I studied, I noticed the one thing they all have in common is raw fruits and veggies (preferably organic as these contain 7-10 times the nutrients and pytochemicals that prevent and cure disease, so it can ward off killer diseases.
Also be sure to "chew the juice"....eat the colors of the rainbow..try each day to have at least one of the following colors (as each has different nutrients and pytochemicals such as red has lycopene (tomatoes/watermelon)..eat yellow, orange, red, green, white/brown and blue/purple daily.
Also remember that fruits are cleansers and veggies are builders. The best juicer is a press type as ones that spin such as the juiceman can inject air into the juice and I recently read this is not as good. also heard vitamixs are too fast and can heat up the juice, but it does juice the whole fruit and has no pulp
I read a book]..it told of patients with a myriad of illnesses doing no diet chances except adding raw juices homemade..the first week they took one 8 oz glass, the following week two -8 oz glasses the 3rd week 3 -8 oz glasses etc all the way to 6 -8 oz glasses and when they reached this point, ALL of their diseases were gone.
If money is tight, some of the fruits/veggies that produce more juice are apple, carrot, celery, cucumber and watermelon (juice the rind too)
The best juice according to master healer of incurable diseases, dr richard schulze, is
fruit -- 40% apple, 40% grapes and 20% berries/cherries
veggies --40% carrot, 40% beets and 20% leafy greens (kale, beet tops, collards, turnip greens, spinach's, chard, etc)
The formulas for various diseases was the one by norman walker and the juice lady books are good..she cured herself of chronic fatigue syndrome using juices and had an interesting story in the front of her books about her healing journey.
Also keep in mind more color is better than less,,so choose black grapes (with seeds is best) over purple and purple over green grapes
choose orange carrots over yellow or white and red onions over yellow over white.
be proud of yourself..also try to use the pulp in recipes to get the whole food and the fiber..like applesauce out of apples..I also freeze the pulp of veggies and make soup with it or add a dressing and try it or get a cookbook on it
if you are a diabetic avoid fruit juices or dilute with one half water and the same with sweet veggies like carrots.
Also try having a green drink daily and add things like chlorella, barley grass, wheat grass, alphalfa, spirulina to a few of the juices.
Also look into raw soups, dressings and sprouting..one of the best books for this with tasty recipes is the raw foods cookbook by rita romano
