juicing for health

The quality of the food we eat has declined over the last two generations

Fast, processed and denatured foods have become the norm

The price we pay is the increase in chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis, an explosion of cardio-vascular disease, and a rise in the incidence of diabetes, cancer and autoimmune diseases

Although our stomachs appear to be full and our appetite appeased, our bodies are being deprived of vital vitamins, minerals, and enzymes when we neglect to eat raw foods.

Most people will agree we are not eating enough fruit and vegetables to effectively prevent disease

The state of your health is directly related to the quality of the food you consume

No additives can mimic the subtle combinations of nutrients that are present in raw fruit and vegetables

One way to increase your intake of raw foods is by juicing

The purchase of a juicer, if you don’t already have, one will be one of the best investments you can make towards improving your health

Fresh vegetable or fruit juices are a rich source of nutrients that are vital to your body

Juicing alone is not a quick fix, but combined with a fresh, unprocessed diet it can relieve common conditions such as acne, allergies, tonsillitis, asthma and constipation

These and many other conditions can be helped simply with the inclusion of raw foods in your diet

Here are some juices you might like to try

Experiment with different juice combinations yourself and find what you like the most.

By reading books on juicing you can learn which juices you can use for specific ailments

Always be sure to use the highest quality vegetables and fruit you can afford, and to wash all fruits and vegetables before juicing
