Juicing for Life-A Review by Joseph S. Maresca CPA,CISA

  • Feb 9, 2003
This work is a comprehensive guide on the nutritional dimensions
of various food groups; such as alkaline and acidic.The author
provides very detailed recommendations relative to the
anti-inflammatory vitamins and nutrients which are necessary
to prevent and manage rheumatological diseases and processes.
The author explains how to make juice preparations with widely-
known anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory components.
Such preparations include Vit. C, Vit E, Cu., Bromelain
and Superoxide dismutase to mention just a few.Back pain
and tenderness may be managed with reduction of animal fats
in the diet, the addition of fish and particularly Omega-3
fatty oils, avoidance of coffee and cleansing diets.
There is an interesting protocol for osteoporosis which
consists of kale, parsley, apples and carrots in a juicing
cocktail.In addition, the author identifies Vit. C, E,
Selenium, Ca., Potassium and chromium as nutrients which might
help to implement a cancer protocol.Lastly, the author very
studiously reviews sample diets and nutrients for a plurality
of chronic disease processes that may or may not respond well
to conventional therapies. This book is a worthy investment
for any person willing to make the commitment of time and
sacrifice to implement the protocols in the interest of
maintaining good general health far into the future.

Great review Joseph! I am a huge fan of making fresh juice, we mostly make smoothies in our blender and I am thinking of getting a juicer. I loved reading @gingerblue's review of the Juiceman Juice Extractor and thought you may like it too! :)

About this book


While Calbom and Keane promise no quick fix for various ailments, their simple-to-prepare natural "potions" fit the contemporary demand for instant--and healthful--gratification. Arranged alphabetically by ills (which range from acne to age spots to chronic fatigue syndrome, varicose veins and water retention), juice "cures" are touted here as "vitamin and mineral cocktails" that can detoxify the body and supplement the diet. Many of the same juice recipes work on sundry and specific ills; recipes for potassium broth, "very veggie" cocktail, "Cherie's cleansing cocktail," "ginger hopper," "garlic express" and "chlorophyll cocktail" are among the repeated panaceas. At the very least, juicing raw produce is a relatively direct means of introducing the vegetables recommended by nutritionists into daily habits. So while some will pigeonhole Juicing as just another New Age treatise, others--convinced of the place of the occasional juice fast in the diet--will find the volume fascinating, and well worth the investment in a juicer and organic produce.
