The Benefits of Juicing
Juicing has been in the news lately. It seems to be the latest fad. Twenty years ago, I was given the following guidance from a woman named Mary. She went to a seminar about juicing and brought me her notes.
A few days later, my friend Ruth gave me my first juicer. My friend, Michelle, later attested to the healing powers of juicing after her chronic illness. Admittedly, it took several weeks for me to adjust to:
- the taste of juicing
- the time it took to wash and prepare vegetables
There are endless stories online of people who have benefited from juicing. After meeting a sweet young woman in Publix yesterday, who was asking me about juicing, I knew it was time to dust off my juicing folder. It is my hope that the following notes, from Mary, will help you in your quest to juice.
Juicing for your health:
Always consult your doctor before beginning a new regimen. A few benefits of juicing are:
- Help slow the aging process
- Lose weight naturally
- Increase energy
- Help prevent cancer (Note- Do not stop your current orders from your physicians.)
- Enjoy optimum health
- Reduce chances of osteoporosis
Combining foods for specific needs:
Specific food combinations target individual needs. Here are some of the juice recipes you may want to look up online or ask your natural healthcare practitioner about:
- Help ease arthritis pain
- Gain more energy
- Reduce headaches
- Build a healthy immune system
- Fight sickness
- Reduce headaches
- Fight second-hand smoke and pollution
- Aid better digestion
- Stress reduction
- Help lower blood pressure
Do you add fruit juice when juicing?
One question I was asked is, “Do you add fruit juice when juicing?” The short answer is, “No.” The vegetables and the fruits actually make juice for you. If you want to drink certain vegetables, but you want to sweeten them up a bit, add a fruit to your juicer.
Other pages, on this blog, are written specifically about which vegetables and fruits to juice. We also have recipes for juicing, so make sure to check out those pages. Check out our menu and our categories for those options and more.
What about you?
Years ago, I wrote an entire story about a man who healed himself of prostrate cancer by juicing daily. The story was published in a book, so it probably cannot be copied on this blog. His testimony was amazing. I do not ever suggest that someone stop chemo and radiation like he did. He had a full time housekeeper who did his grocery buying and juicing for him, plus he had an unsinkable faith that most people do not possess.
Have you tried juicing? What suggestions do you have for others?

In the meantime, we have another poll we are conducting. If you missed our original poll, about “More or Less”, please click here. Our new poll consists of two questions, that I have received fun answers to already:
- Name 1 thing you would like to do.
- Name 1 thing you are thankful you did not do.
