I love juicing!  I have written about it not too long ago and I thank everyone for stoping by and reading the article.  It makes me happy that so many of you are leaving the path of processed foods.  Homemade fruit and vegetable juices do not only improve your overall health and assists in weight loss but is also extremely therapeutic when it comes to dealing with a whole list of illnesses.

Dealing with arthritis for example….at least a pint of grapefruit juice (please not store-bought!  Already processed juice has no benefit at all). Separately to the grapefruit juice, also prepare a half of pint of carrot/spinach juice, and at least half a pint of carrot/sellerie juice. This means a total of two pints daily, which usually leads to tangible results within a reasonable period. It has also been useful to drink half a pint of carrots/turnips/cucumber juice.

Drink these juice combos throughout the day at intervals of one or two hours between each mix. Keep in mind that mixing the different juice types are important since the chemical composition of each individual juice achieve different results. It is important to know the correct mixtures to battle arthritis.  Heat, pills and electricity deal with the pain only and do not combat the cause of the sickness.

The grapefruit juice for example, contains organic salicylic acid which aids in dissolving the unnatural calcium build-up around the joints. The turnips and wintergreen also contain salicylic acid but its job here is to assist in the cleansing and regenerating of the joints.

The dissolving of the unnatural calcium is only the first step of improving the illness. Now it needs to be eliminated form the body and this is where the carrot/sellerie juice comes into play. The carrot/spinach combo is to rebuild and renew and brings all back into balance.

Going through this process can be very painful, some days will be more so than others. As you know, in natural medicine it is often so that first the symptoms get worse before improvement can be seen and noticed. Sticking with it is the key. It also helps to understand the psychological reason for arthritis, which is long suppressed anger and frustration.  Trying to avoid these factors as much as possible will also speed up the healing process.

I can only speak for myself, this has been my journey, my experiences and I would like to share them.  We’ve been conditioned to swallow a pill for everything that ails us, lulled into not taking the horrid side effects seriously.  There are alternatives and I for one, believe strongly that nature holds all answers.   I use the theraputical juice recipes from Dr. Norman Walker, who was an expert on nutrition and lived to be 115 years old.


I love Apple Cider Vinegar!

yes, I use it a lot in everyday situations plus I drink it.  My mother turned me onto it, she has been drinking a tonic mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar for over 40 years every single day and her doctor is always amazed that her arteries are as free and clear as a 20 year old’s.  She swears on it and the results speak for themselves.  I’ve been making my drink off and on, this time I have been on this regiment for about 1 year.  There are some variations out on the web, all more or less the same though. I like mine as follows:

  • one glass of hot water
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of honey

I drink it first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.  I drink it overall health, it supports the circulatory health, eliminates toxic waste from tissues and, as stated above, keeps arteries clean from build up.

Some say that the Apple Cider Vinegar should be double fermented, not distilled or pasteurized, they say that the extra processing destroys the vitamins, nutrients and trace minerals  within the fermentation which are important to aid in weight loss, and I believe that.  If your goal is to lose some weight, then go for the double fermented version, but then you need to drink a glass prior to every meal to make it most effective.
