Posted by Physician's Preference on 6/21/2012
Just like there are certain supplements you can take for specific health reasons, there are also certain fruits and vegetables you can use to juice with that target specific ailments.
This will begin the first of two segments where we'll be focusing on specific foods for different health issues:
Aging: apples, blueberries, grapefruit, melons, oranges, pears, strawberries, raspberries, brocolli, carrots, celery, onions, tomatoes
Common cold: lemons, onions, citrus fruits, carrots, garlic, echinacea, peppermint
Skin: apples, berries, canteloupes, grapes, pears, carrots, cucumbers, pumpkin
Fatigue: Bananas, grapes, limes, oranges, pineapples, strawberries, brocolli, carrots, leafy greens, spinach
Menopause: apples, bananas, grapes, peaches, pears, carrots, celery, green bell peppers, tomatoes
Headaches: apples, bananas, brocolli, leafy greens, watercress
What are your favorite fruits and veggies to juice and why?
it is better to eat you calories and get the fiber and workout your body does to digest them rather than using up calories by drinking them.
No, Sister Catherine, you are wrong! Read books about juicing to understand why! Juices help the body rest from digestion so that energy can be used for healing! Also food crops are vastly deficient in nutrients due to weed-killers like Round-Up that lock up soil to deprive weeds but starve crops (and you) too.
Anybody have a good source for juicing recipe blends? Just geting started and have no idea what to combine for not only health...but for a juice that taste good.

Jay Kordich's Live Food Live Bodies is a good juicing book. Many recipies for specific health concerns.
