Raw Juicing

Author's Perspective: Raw juicing can help accelerate your body's repair process so that you can reverse your diabetes within 30 days -- as long as you adhere to all 10 steps of the Death to Diabetes program. Raw juicing is also an excellent way to transition to a raw food diet program.

FYI: Most people are aware of the obvious health benefits of raw juicing. However, due to TV infomercials, various health and nutrition books, and the Internet, there are some major misunderstandings and misuses of raw juicing. As a result, most people who try juicing give it up within 3-6 months! I also found myself answering an excessive number of questions about juicing via emails and workshops.

Consequently, I decided to do some research into various juicing books and juicing philosophies.  Interestingly, I discovered that a lot of assumptions about how the body functions when you juice was based on a healthy body, not an unhealthy body! -- such as a diabetic's body or someone who is overweight.

As a result, I decided to write an ebook about raw juicing that answered a lot of the misconceptions about raw juicing; and, provided additional information that the other juicing books overlooked or didn't think was important, i.e. how to make your juice taste scrumptious, how to properly store your vegetables and fruits.

Update 2010: Everyone loved Mr. McCulley's Power of Juicing book because it provided a lot more information than other juicing books (see below for details), plus, the recipes actually work! However, some of our clients stopped juicing after several months because they got tired of cleaning their juicer!  During one of the author's workshops, a young woman asked whether there was another way to get the benefits of juicing without having to deal with a juicer. Mr. McCulley mentioned that green smoothies could provide some of the same benefits, but most of the audience didn't know about green smoothies for diabetics. So, Mr. McCulley expanded the juicing book to include recipes for making green smoothies for diabetics and for people who wanted to lose weight.

Benefits of raw juicing and green smoothies include accelerated body repair and healing, reduced insulin resistance and inflammation, better blood glucose and insulin control, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, detox, healthier liver and kidneys, weight loss, reduced cravings, stronger immune system, the need for less medications, and the ability for diabetes reversal.

Note: If you bought the old juicing book (without the smoothie recipes), just contact our office with your Invoice number, and we will send you the updated juicing book free of charge.


The Power of Raw Juicing, Green Smoothies, & Raw Diet

Raw juicing works, but only as part of an overall superior nutritional program, such as the Death to Diabetes Super Meal Model. Most people who do not reap the benefits of raw juicing are juicing improperly!Reverse Type 2 Diabetes with Raw Juicing -- by juicing the wrong foods and/or by using the wrong type of juicer.

Juicing is a very powerful nutritional therapy, but most people misapply this therapy by preparing mostly fruit juices. Vegetable juicing is more powerful than fruit juicing, especially for people fighting diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, or any other degenerative disease.

If eating raw vegetables, salads and soups are not appealing enough to acquire the minimum 6 to 9 cups (5 to 7 servings) of vegetables and fruits each day, then, juicing may be an effective addition to your nutritional program. Even as a diabetic, juicing can be very nutritious as long as you drink mostly green vegetables/grasses and avoid drinking too many of the fruits.

Green juices (and green smoothies) have an alkaline reaction in the body and help protect against acid build-up as well as stimulate the body to manufacture hemoglobin. Green juices contain organic water, the purest most natural water available to us, and they cleanse the body of the waste within the cells and tissues.

Green juices (and green smoothies) contain an abundance of chlorophyll, which is a molecule whose structure is almost exactly the same as the hemoglobin molecule of the human blood. Chlorophyll helps to repair tissue and is very important in helping to remove toxins from the body.

As a result, raw juicing can help to accelerate your body's repair process and help to reverse your diabetes in less time. In fact, you should notice your blood glucose level starting to come down during the first week of the Death to Diabetes Program! -- as long as you are following the entire program, not just the juicing component.

Juices are a perfect medium in which to mix and dissolve nutritional powders that will enhance their healing powers. The nutrients and herbs in powders are better absorbed than tablet forms of the same ingredients, and mixing them in juices enhances their solubility, digestion and absorption.

The juices bring the healing nutrients to the cells in the surface of the mucous membrane of the gut in an easily absorbed form. This requires much less energy to assimilate than solid tablets, especially in people with inflamed mucous membranes in the intestines.

Juices can be combined in so many ways to make them palatable and delicious. Their diverse colors and taste enable huge variety so that you will not get bored. For those who feel they need an extra boost there is nothing better than drinking 2 cups of raw vegetable juice everyday. It will brighten up your day by providing extra energy and endurance.

Raw juices are packed with living enzymes to assist the digestive process, which means your gut, liver and pancreas do not have to work very hard to extract almost 99% of the nutrients within the raw vegetables and fruits.

Raw Foods & Juicing Reverse Type 2 Diabetes
This conserves vital body energy, which means that the body does not feel heavy or weighed down after drinking raw juices.

For example, two cups of carrot juice (16 ounces) is approximately equivalent to eating one pound of raw carrots. Eating so many carrots at one time would be hard on the jaws and teeth and would take a long time to eat and digest. Juices are unique because they allow the gut to receive very concentrated amounts of phytonutrients that could not be obtained by eating a normal amount of raw vegetables and fruits.

Raw juices contain natural medicinal nutrients that provide antioxidant, antibiotic, and hormonal balancing benefits. For example, Brussel sprouts and string beans are known to contain insulin-like substances that can be beneficial to Type 2 diabetics, and especially Type 1 diabetics. In addition, phytonutrients needed by the pancreas to produce insulin are present in cucumber and onion juices; and, the phytonutrient properties of broccoli, carrot, celery, lettuce and spinach are also beneficial to diabetics.

For example, broccoli is an excellent source of chromium, which helps to regulate insulin usage in the body. Fresh juices of garlic, onions, radish and tomatoes contain various antibiotic properties. Alfalfa, olives, asparagus, lettuce, mustard greens, radishes, cabbage and cucumbers contain silicon, which works to support the pancreas. Wheat/barley grass, celery, kelp, cucumber and cabbage juice are excellent to reduce acidity and blood pressure.

Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach help to cleanse and heal the gastrointestinal tract. The phytonutrient properties of carrot are also beneficial to diabetics once they have their blood glucose level under control.

In general, to help improve the health of your heart, nerves, kidneys, and eyes, drink daily 2-4 cups of raw vegetable juices and smoothies.  Drinking as little as 3 cups of fresh vegetable juice each day will help the body detoxify and regenerate through the assimilation of the earth’s life-giving nutrients.

Note: Although fruits and vegetables do not contain large quantities of protein, their juice can be a convenient carrier for other sources of protein. Simply add some freshly-ground flaxseed powder, Brewer's yeast,  or wheat germ to whatever you're juicing. These will provide quality protein that is quickly and easily absorbed by the body without the fat that meat contains.

The raw juice is obtained using a device called a juicer. It works by feeding raw vegetables, grasses and fruits into a chute that pushes the food into a high-speed rotating blade that shreds the food, extracting the juice from the pulp. Use Juicer to Reverse Diabetes

This extraction process breaks down the cellulose barriers in the cells of the vegetables, grasses and fruits, allowing the release of powerful enzymes and other nutrients. Juicers are very powerful but are not as popular as blenders because they tend to be more difficult to use and to clean.

Consequently, it is important that you purchase a juicer with fewer parts, a powerful motor and a wide chute. This will prevent you from spending a lot of time cutting up the vegetables/fruits to fit down the chute of the juicer. Use Juicer to Reverse Diabetes

Depending on your needs and finances, purchase the appropriate juicer, e.g. twin gear press (vegetables and wheat grass), mastication, centrifugal ejection, single/dual auger (for wheat grass), or manual press (for fruits only).

Note: If you don't like to use a juicer, use your blender to make scrumptious "healthy milkshakes" known as smoothies. Use a Super Blender to Make Smoothies to Reverse Diabetes

But, make sure that you use a high-powered blender that can pulverize nuts and break down the cell walls of the vegetables without overheating the vegetables.

Note: To learn how to juice properly for blood glucose stabilization, insulin control, reduced insulin resistance, reduced inflammation, accelerated cell repair, and increased weight loss, get the Power of Juicing & Smoothies ebook. Also, get the Raw Food Diet ebook to help you get started with your raw food diet.

Note: Benefits of raw juicing and green smoothies include accelerated body repair and healing, reduced insulin resistance and inflammation, better blood glucose and insulin control, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, detox, healthier liver and kidneys, weight loss, reduced cravings, stronger immune system, the need for less medications, and the ability for diabetes reversal.
