Hi Molly.....The best juice books, by far, in my opinion...are the ones written
years ago by some of the 'old guys'. I have quite a few, but I also have my
favorites, and I've listed them below:
Fruit And Vegetable Juices by N. W. Walker
Drink Your Troubles Away by John Lust
Make Your Juicer Your Drug Store by Dr. L Newman
You should be able to find these on ebay for pennies...they're usually there. So
if your health food store doesn't have them...just check ebay for a few days and
they'll turn up. They are absolutely priceless.
They not only tell what most juices will do for you...but go into detail on healing
the body from top to bottom with live juices.
Spinach is filled with chlorophyll and is very healing...also works great as a
laxative if you juice a really big handful. Not only cleanses and helps heal the lower bowel but the whole intestinal track.
Apple is a great cleanser...good for the pancreas, gall bladder and liver. It's
loaded with silicon so is very good for the skin, hair and nails. Now you know why
they say..."An apple a day keeps the doctor away!" :-)
Beet is a good cleanser, but we should never use too much at one time. I only add
about 1/4 small beet and 2 or 3 leaves to our juice. It's good for blood pressure,
heart, circulation. This is one of the few veggies where...'a little goes a long way'.
Cucumber is a good diuretic...good for arthritis, really good for hair, skin and
nails. It's so good for the skin...it's a good idea to put a little in your juice
and splash a little on your face. :-)
Celery will lower your blood pressure...calm your nerves...and surprisingly very
good in the juice we make.
I've been way too long....but you get the picture. If you want to do something
really nice for yourself....juicing would be a good first choice. Hope you decide
to get the books I mentioned...I guarantee, you will not be disappointed. kathryn
