A practical A-to-Z guide to the prevention and treatment of the most common health disorders
Written by nutritionist and juicing expert Cherie Calbom, The Juice Lady?s Guide to Juicing for Health, Revised Edition, shows you how to use fresh juice to lose weight, boost energy, and achieve the glow of health. With helpful guidelines for buying and using a juice machine, Cherie also explains how to put that machine to work with delicious recipes and easy-to-understand nutritional programs for more than fifty health conditions. These research-backed programs include the best combinations of fruits and vegetables for each disorder, along with a diet plan and other health tips that can help you fight off disease.
This revised edition provides updated health and nutritional information on many conditions, including ADHD, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and much more. Supporting the nutritional programs with a unique diet plan, special cleansing regimens, and detailed appendices packed with useful information, The Juice Lady?s Guide to Juicing for Health gives you a total approach to health?now, and for the rest of your life.
Having trouble getting your five to nine recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables? Drink your vegetables, says Cherie Calbom, the Juice Lady, and she offers 75 juice recipes to help you do it. Juicing not only tastes good and gives you nutrition, but it can also benefit your health, says Calbom. She organizes The Juice Lady’s Guide to Juicing for Health into 53 medical conditions–such as Alzheimer’s, ADD, allergies, influenza, gout, herpes, fibrocystic breasts, diabetes, and depression. For each, she makes recommendations about lifestyle, diet, nutrients, herbs, and juice ingredients, and offers specific juice recipes. The juices are innovative and cleverly named, such as Popeye’s Power (with apple, spinach, parsley, carrots, celery, and beet), Ginger Hopper (apple, carrots, gingerroot), Sweet Calcium Cocktail (pineapple, kale), Jack & the Bean (tomato, lettuce, string beans, Brussels sprouts, lemon), and Weight-Loss Buddy (Jerusalem artichoke, carrots, beet). Two caveats: (1) Realize that you also need the fiber in fruits and veggies, not just the vitamins and minerals from the juice, so don’t juice exclusively. (2) Juices are part of healthy nutrition, but they don’t cure disease. (She doesn’t claim this, but it’s easy to jump to that conclusion from the way the book is organized.) Enjoy the juices and use them to support your health, but don’t expect that juicing will cause a change in a medical condition. –Joan Price
