5.0 out of 5 stars The Joy of Juicing, 2 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Juicing for Life: Guide to the Health Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing (Paperback)
The benefits of juicing are enormous, by getting the essential vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables in a quick, digestible form. Juicing can provide a "meal in a glass" that can make a great snack or even a substitute for a meal in a calorie restricted diet, and for anyone who has to "eat and run", a tall glass of juice is the ultimate fast food.
Part One is "The Basics", with excellent guidelines, including one page of "Juicing Tips" that I found useful.
Part Two, "The Disorders", is the bulk of the book, and addresses common ailments and diseases, describes the condition, gives general recommendations, dietary modifications, nutrients that help, beneficial juices and suggested recipes.
A wide range of disorders are discussed. Under "C" for instance, there is not only the obvious cancer and cholesterolemia (high cholesterol) listed, but also ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome, which is not usually thought of as being helped through nutrition ("The majority of carpal tunnel sufferers have been found to have low levels of vitamin B6", page 93), and also that bane of 40+ women, cellulite: "The good news is that cellulite can be reversed significantly" (page. 100), and the book tells you how.
Part Three is "The Diet Plans", and has suggestions for everyday meals, with basic healthy eating, "Immune Support Diet", and many different types of cleansing diets and advice.
Cherie "The Juicewoman" Calbom and Maureen Keane have a long list of credentials and "know their onions" in the field of nutrition, and if you believe that what you eat has a direct impact on you physical health and stress level, this is a good book to have in your library. Also recommended is "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by James and Phyllis Balch.
