Raw Juices Could Save Your Life
" There is no doubt in my mind that raw juicing can save your life. I have seen it work miracles in some of my patients who were stuck on the merry-go-round of drug therapy. I am a medical doctor using nutritional medicine who first likes to do no harm to her patients.
The juice from raw fruits and vegetables has powerful healing and rejuvenating properties that can help people with all sorts of health problems.
Juices are easily digested and absorbed and are superb for those with a poor appetite, nausea, digestive problems or an inflamed stomach or intestines. It is easier to drink a juice than chew your way through large amounts of fibrous raw vegetables, especially if you are feeling fatigued or disinterested in food.
Modern day medicine is focused on treating the symptoms of disease with suppressive drugs. Sometimes this is necessary when a disease is very aggressive and acute in onset, however raw juice therapy is something that should always be used, even in conjunction with drug use.
I have seen many of my patients recover form chronic disease after they started juicing, and this has been after they have tried many other things. People of all ages can benefit from juicing, especially the very young and old, or those with serious disease such as cancer, immune dysfunction and liver problems.
Juices are a perfect medium in which to mix and dissolve nutritional powders, and will enhance their healing powers. The nutrients and herbs in powders are better absorbed than tablet forms of the same ingredients, and mixing them in juices enhances their solubility, digestion, and absorption. The juices bring the healing nutrients to the cells in the surface of the mucous membrane of the gut in an easily absorbed form. This requires much less energy to assimilate than solid tablets, especially in people with inflamed mucous membranes in the intestines.
Juices can reduce harmful acidity and toxicity in the body
Many people consume a diet high in processed foods, along with tea, coffee and alcohol. This causes a build up of acids and metabolic waste products in the body, which can result in more inflammation.
This acidic state of the body can be neutralized by drinking raw juices. Celery, cucumber and cabbage juice are excellent to reduce acidity. This is an effective way to balance the pH levels (acid-base) balance in the body which will dramatically increase energy and well-being
Raw juices are able to stimulate the function of the bowels, liver and kidneys, which increases the breakdown and elimination of toxic chemicals and waste products from the body. The raw juices can increase the quality and flow of the bile.
This is very important in detoxification, because the liver pumps large amounts of toxic poisons out of the body through the bile. In some people, the billiard system is like a 'sewer' in that it is laden with unhealthy fats and toxins. Little wonder that millions of people suffer with liver and gall bladder diseases and stones.
If only they knew about the power of raw juicing and “The Liver Cleansing Diet”, they would be able to keep their gall bladder, and enjoy a healthier life.There are so many sick people on this planet searching for lasting solutions to their health problems. Furthermore, some of the drugs used to treat common ailments, can themselves cause diseases, and we call this medical drug-induced disease “iatrogenic disease”. For example, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can damage the stomach, kidneys and the liver if they are taken on a long-term basis.
The cholesterol lowering drugs known as “statins” can cause severe muscle diseases. Some of the drugs used to lower blood sugar levels can cause liver disease.Long-term antibiotics can cause severe liver damage, which can lead to immune dysfunction resulting in allergies and autoimmune diseases.
Steroids like cortisone may lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, diabetes and osteoporosis. Also, these drugs become increasingly ineffective over long periods of time. The incidence of obesity and type 2 diabetes has tripled in the last 40 years because we are not in tune with our body’s natural needs.
We often tend to panic when we become sick and rush in to taking drugs or having surgery. It is often better to sit down, relax and think for a while, so we can look at more natural alternatives.
Can we change our diet and lifestyle, reduce stress, and take the time needed to truly heal ourselves? Yes, we can afford some more time for ourselves, and even if we need to take drugs, it is vitally important to start a program of raw food juicing and nutritional healing. This is so important but rarely given the credibility it deserves.”
