Juice Recipes For What Ails Ya

So here are some great recipes that we use with our juicer to ward off illness or the yucks. They are are from The Juiceman's Power Of Juicing. (Check my right sidebar under "I Recommend". I've found the book really cheap on Amazon.)

For Bladder Infections, Canker Sores, or Fever Blisters

3 apples washed and cut into wedges...skin, seeds and all.
1 cup washed cranberries.

Wipes it out in a matter of hours with only one dose.

To Build Our Immune System When A Cold Is Coming On (Like V8)

6 carrots
2 stalks of celery
small handful of parsley
1 clove of garlic
1 large tomato

~~~~~or~~~~~

2 apples
1 orange

Nausea, Morning Sickness, Motion Sickness

2 apples
1 pear
1 inch knob of ginger root

For Fasting:

Waldorf Salad Juice (helps maintain your sodium and potassium balance)

4 apples
2 stalks of celery

~~~~~or~~~~~

The Broccoli Cheer (actually pretty good)
4 carrots
3 to 4 broccoli florets with stems
1/2 apple

The book has remedies for regular ailments like acid stomach, acne, constipation, sinus problems and headaches as well as some recipes for more serious stuff like ulcers, diabetes, arthritis and heart problems. Although personally I'd go to a doctor for the more serious stuff and just supplement with the juices. It also has recipes for greying hair (need to try THAT one) eye problems, brittle nails, thicker hair, healthy skin and other stuff. It's definitely a great resources and really cheap to purchase.

Thanks for the other recipes. I feel a cold coming on so I will try the juice.

This is off the subject, but I have been using the laundry soap and I have noticed on some of the clothes spots, like wet spots but they won't come off. Any suggestions?

I haven't had any problem with the laundry soap doing that although we do sometimes get greasy spots on our t-shirts that used to plague me. I tried everything but I've found that my homemade Spray-N-Wash sprayed on a left to sit overnight and then a load in hot water usually does the trick. Maybe that would work for you.

Here's the link to the homeamde stain remover...

On the juice note...back when I used to juice...

A mix of fresh granny smith and celery was GREAT to have about 30 minutes before a hard workout. All that lactic acid buildup? Never hits ya. I swear by it.

The best grease remover from clothing? Regular ol' dishwashing soap. I use Palmolive or Dawn. Today I am wearing a dark eggplant/magenta colored t-shirt that had a quarter sized grease stain on it. I washed and dried it a couple time before I remembered to address it. Pour the soap on full strength, let sit and toss in the wash. I promise, you cannot even see it was ever there! And I was shocked to see that it didn't colorstain or bleach such a dark shirt. Works like a charm everytime!
