How and What To Juice
Whether you’re sick or well, your body replaces cells at the rate of 300 million every minute. The quality of the replacement cells depends on the quality of food you are providing to your body.
There are 3 ways this can go; you can get sicker by eating more and more poorly; you can stay the way you are by not changing your food habits; or you can get better by changing what you eat to living foods that help the body create healthier cells than the ones it is replacing.
Obviously, you want to provide better cells than the ones your body is replacing — this is how you reverse disease; and juicing is the best source of high quality nutrition your body can get to create superior cells to do it.
Now if you’re juicing a quart of vegetable juice or more every day, it can get expensive, especially if you’re trying to do everything organically. But here’s my little money-saving secret...
Most chemicals used on conventional produce are hydrophobic. That means they stick to the pulp of the fruits and vegetables, not the juice.
So don’t be afraid to juice conventional produce instead of organic; you’re getting a lot less exposure to these chemicals that you might think. However, it’s still a good idea to wash everything first.
So what about juicing fruit? Well, juicing fruit is not really a good idea. Part of the function of fiber in a whole piece of fruit is to regulate the release of the fruit’s sugar in the bloodstream.
When you juice a piece of fruit, you separate the fiber from the juice, which concentrates all of the sugar from that whole piece of fruit into a small amount of juice.
Without the fiber to regulate the sugar in a piece of fruit, the sugar in fruit juice is released into your body too quickly, and that’s not conducive to healing.
Vegetables, on the other hand, are the best thing to juice to get maximum nutrients into your body with the least amount of digestive effort; and that promotes healing.
So remember this rule of thumb: eat your fruits, juice your veggies.
