Some of the other fruits and vegetables that can be used in therapeutic juices include: Apple, Asparagus, Brussel Sprouts, Beet tops, Cabbage, Celery, Coconut, Cucumber, Dandelion, Endive, Grapefruit, Green Beans, Green Peppers, Horseradish, Kale, Lemon, Lettuce, Orange, Parsley, Pomegranate, Potato, Radish, Red Peppers, Spinach, Turnip, and Watercress. As an average, one to three 4 ounce glasses are usually recommended per day on an empty stomach, and this can be adjusted for each person’s individual needs. If too much is taken a person might experience a ‘cleansing reaction’. This is perfectly natural because our body is starting to do a ‘house cleaning’. One should not jump to the conclusion that the juice does not agree with them, but rather the high quantity of fresh vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace elements are nourishing and stimulating the cells and tissues to throw off old wastes and to function the way they were designed to do.
One of the most important things to remember about raw juices is that drinking raw juices is the best way to put living enzymes into your body. When vegetables or fruit are cooked the enzymes are destroyed by the heat. Making your own fresh, raw vegetable, fruit, and green plant juices and smoothies is the best way to get an abundance of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements into your body!
