Dr Jensen's Juicing Therapy

This is an update of Dr Jensen's classic work on the healing power of fruit and vegetable juices. They contain very high levels of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, bioflavonoids, phytochemicals and carotenoids, which activate the body's ability to heal. He cites stories to prove this. One is of a 31-year-old woman with 13 leg ulcers who had undergone allopathic treatment for 3 years without success. He healed her in just three weeks through green leafy vegetable juices high in chlorophyll. Another is a patient in the final stages of bowel cancer. He took carrot juice and liquid chlorophyll for a year and was reported to be absolutely free of cancer when he attended the hospital.

Dr Jensen advocates juice fasting on certain occasions for specific physical ailments and conditions. Otherwise he emphasizes that juices should be taken in addition to the diet, as we need fibre foods for bowel tone, proper elimination and for protein. Therefore, a variety of juice snacks taken twice daily would give us health and vitality and prevent disease. Specifically juices cleanse the blood, lymph and intracellular fluid, counteract toxins, repair tissue integrity and restore energy and alertness.

The book makes it clear that nutrients in the juices are only as good as the soil they are grown in and that the label organic does not guarantee that it has been grown on mineral rich soil.

There is a comprehensive analytical food guide to help the reader to make the best choices of foods to juice and over 100 delicious, easy-to-make recipes for adults, babies and children. He supplies useful information on blending and ways of juicing without having a juicing machine.

The book is definitely worth reading as juicing is a valuable tool for healing. All the nutritional therapies for degenerative diseases include fresh raw juices such as those advocated by Anne Wigmore, Dr Bircher-Benner and Dr Max Gerson. That Dr Jenson is a healthy 91 year old speaks for itself!
