Juicing - A Key To Your Health was chosen to highlight the importance that juicing might be for you. For me, it has become a daily nourishment routine. It is not a substitute for eating food, rather it is a supplement to my diet.
My ultimate goal in juicing was to improve my immune system. For a sickly person, it has achieved that end. Yes, I still occasionally get sick, but these occurrences are fewer and shorter in duration. In addition, I find that fresh juice provides me more energy.
I've been juicing for 19 years. It is an integral part of my lifestyle. Juice preparation requires the washing and cutting of fruits and vegetables. The scraps that do not make it into the juicer will end up in my compost pile. Eventually the compost returns to the earth to aid the growing of more vegetables for juicing, e.g., tomatoes, cucumbers and parsley.
Make no mistake, juicing requires a commitment, it is work, but the health benefits can be immeasurable. To aid you in assessing juicing, it is recommended that you read the following post titled "Juiciing: Your Key to Radiant Health, #msg-32950814.
