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.
