JUICE THERAPY

< back    

Naturopathic consultations on Juicing Available for $100.  Includes cleansing video and information on fasting and available detox programs.

Juice therapy uses the fresh, raw juice of vegetables and fruits to nourish and replenish the body. Used as nutritional support during periods of stress and illness, juice therapy can also be used as part of a comprehensive health maintenance plan.

        Juice therapy follows a system of cleansing and restoration, and uses fresh juices to provide a nutritional foundation for the body's curative processes. Fresh juices play an important role with virtually any regime to cleanse the body and restore vitality. With juice therapy, nutrients are supplied in a concentrated, raw, and unprocessed form that is easy to consume and digest, making juice and ideal companion to fasting and health maintenance regimens.

          Juicing is the easiest and most efficient method for extracting the high level of nutrients stored within the individual cells of fruits and vegetables. When a fruit or vegetable is juiced, the fibrous plant cell wall is cut open and the juice of the cell, which contains the cell sap, sugars, starches, proteins, enzymes, and other nutrients, is released.

  • Apple: Apples are rich in sorbitol, a form of sugar and gentle laxative.
  • Apple, grape and blueberry: These fruits are a source of polyphenols (an antioxidant). In laboratory tests, polyphenols have been show to kill viruses.
  • Beet: Beet greens are rich in magnesium, beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E. Beetroot is rich in potassium, folic acid, and the antioxidant glutathione. Beet juice is valued for its vitamin, mineral, and nutrient content. Due to its strong taste, it should be mixed with other juices.
  • Blueberry and cranberry: When consumed on a regular basis, these juices can help prevent recurrent urinary tract infections.
  • Cabbage: Cabbage juice is famous for its ulcer-healing capabilities, but should be used only in conjunction with a doctors prescribed therapy for ulcer treatment.
  • Cantaloupe: Cantaloupe has a blood- thinning effect that can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.
  • Carrot: Carrot juice is an excellent source of beta-carotene, potassium, trace minerals, and anticancer nutrients including phthalide and glutathione (antioxidants). Yellowish coloration of the skin may occur when large amounts are consumed. This coloration is harmless, and will fade when consumption is reduced.
  • Celery: Celery juice contains the anticancer nutrients phthalide and polyacetylene (antioxidants). It is rich in potassium and sodium and helps lower blood pressure. Celery juice can be diluted with waster and used as a sports drink to replace fluid and mineral loss due to sweating. It contains the same ulcer-healing factors found in cabbage juice.
  • Cherry: A traditional remedy for the pain of gout.
  • Garlic: This herb is a treasure house of healing compounds. It acts as a natural antibiotic and blood thinner and can reduce cholesterol levels. Juice a clove and add it to your favorite vegetable mix.
  • Ginger: The root of the ginger plant has anti-inflammatory properties and will also protect the stomach from irritation caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Migraines and motion sickness can also be relieved by ginger juice. A small amount goes a long way; use only one-quarter- to one-half inch slice per drink.
  • Lemon: Lemon juice is a traditional appetite stimulant. Place one or two tablespoons of fresh, unsweetened lemon juice in a glass of water and drink half an hour before meals. This remedy stimulates the flow of the saliva and digestive juices.
  • Pineapple: The raw juice of this plant contains the enzyme bromelain. Bromelain has been shown to have gentle anti-inflammatory properties. Swish the raw juice around the site of a tooth extraction to reduce swelling or eat a frozen pineapple juice pop to soothe a sore throat.
  • Fruit Juice: A glass of fruit juice (lemon juice excepted) one hour before dinner will act as a natural appetite suppressant due to the sugar in the juice.
