Juicing In General – Benefits of Juicing

Move It Along Folks…Natural Alternatives For Constipation

0 by / on March 22, 2009, 10:08 am

I know…it’s hard to talk about, but it’s actually one of my favorite subjects.  Poop and the inability to poop.  Let’s face it guys, EVERYONE POOPS!  Whether it’s infrequent or difficult to pass, in order for your body to eliminate waste materials (that which it does not need), you must have a regular bowel movement.  One to three bowel movements a day is normal.  If that is just not happening for you….then let’s talk about getting things moving and why they don’t move. Food sitting too long in the stomach and moving too slowly through the large bowel are the [...]

The Lexen Healthy Juicer Manual. Quiet and So Much More!

0 by / on February 26, 2009, 7:53 am

I get many calls about how you guys can’t afford a wheatgrass juicer PLUS a juicer to juice your greens.  And I always suggest the Lexen Manual Healthy Juicer.  When I was at Hippocrates visting my brother Michael, we decided to do a test with two popular juicers.  The Healthy Juicer Manual won out every time for amount of juice, ease and clean up.  Check out our experiment on my brother’s website.  This Lexen juicer is the ultimate for wheatgrass juicing.  Let’s talk about putting it together.  Even I didn’t have to read the directions.  My partner’s 4 year old was putting it [...]

Well my JuicyFriends – we have a winner!  My moderator/mediator/drawing companion, Jason (our Juicy marketing guy) was there to witness the drawing and help mix up the INCREDIBLE entries that were posted for the Lexen Christmas Giveaway! I have to take a moment to express my gratitude for your entries.  I was honestly expecting the general “yo, enter me!”.  Instead, I got some incredible insight into your lives and why you live the lifestyle you do – or why you want to get into the lifestyle.  I was also impressed with some of the incredible stories and the fact that [...]

To Juice Or Not To Juice..That Is The Question..

0 by / on December 5, 2008, 5:46 pm

Oh, who am I kidding.  There’s only one answer here.  JUICE!!! Ghandi said, “Chew your drink and drink your food.”  What does that mean?  Very simple, take the time to liquefy your food before swallowing, and swish your drink around before swallowing.  Liquid is the way to go for assimilation and elimination. The only question I ask myself in the morning is this… “Should I use my Champion juicer or my Vitamix today?”  Or use my own teeth!  I first started seriously juicing over two years ago.  When I went “raw” and bought my Champion, I juiced anything I could [...]

No Thanks. I’d Rather Juice My Wheatgrass!

3 by / on November 17, 2008, 6:49 pm

This is my story on my journey into wheatgrass juicing! If you’ve never heard of wheatgrass juice, you’re not alone.  There are a few entries here about it and one from my brother Michael! Don’t underestimate the healing properties of wheatgrass and wheatgrass juice.  Growing wheatgrass in my apartment and drinking wheatgrass juice may have saved my life when carbon monoxide leaked inside due to an improperly installed gas heater.   Drinking wheatgrass for maintenance also helped me expel a chemical that I’d been using for way too many years  AND a poultice I made from the pulp of wheatgrass cured [...]

Why Buy a Juicer?

0 by / on October 23, 2008, 8:58 am

The best reason to ask “why buy a juicer” is to look closely at the label of most store bought juices. What comes first? Corn syrup? Sugar? How much fruit or vegetable is actually in the juice? Look at the ingredients and you will quickly find that most of the easy-to-buy, right-off-the-shelf juices available are made of sugar and water with a bit of fruit or vegetable juice. These juices typically also contain a number of preservatives, coloring agents, and other unnecessary and possibly detrimental additives that will neither be advantageous to your diet or your health. Raw foods, on [...]

Benefits of Vitamin K and How to Get It! “Who put the ‘K’ in Vitamin?”

0 by / on October 23, 2008, 8:54 am

I just love imagining the expression of profound “Huh?” on your face. (Or maybe I just overestimate my cleverness) Anyway, what I’m talkin bout Willis is Vitamin K; that amazing “koagulating” substance essential for healing our wounds. Now I’m no dummy—at least that’s what my mother tells me—but “koagulation” is the way our Danish friend Henrik Dam, the researcher who discovered the stuff spelled it, and that’s what put the “K” in Vitamin. Now for years scientists have believed that coagulation (see I can spell it) seemed to be the only boon of this baby but recent discoveries have shown [...]

“The Hives: Great Band… Terrible Skin Condition”

0 by / on October 5, 2008, 8:12 am

Really one of the best live shows ever.  I saw them once in Manhattan and was so wiped out I didn’t get out of bed the whole next day.  That’s pretty much what I wanted to do after the fires last week but I couldn’t stop scratching.  I’m not sure if it was all the stress or an allergy to something or a combination of many things but I found myself with hives… (the skin irritation that is, although they sound like fun guys to hang out with)  Some people get this frequently when they’re stressed or exposed to an [...]

Fighting Factors of Orange Juice – “All This Talk About OJ Is Making Me Thirsty”

0 by / on October 1, 2008, 8:06 am

I got an email from a member of the Juicy Josh MySpace community earlier this week asking me what I had to do with OJ?  Strange question, I thought…  and not very nice.  Of course the whole thing was a big misunderstanding that we straightened out quickly.  But it got me thinking and I realized that I hadn’t really written anything about this wonderful fruit and its health benefits.  (I don’t really have much to say about the other OJ)  And away we go… So every year around flu season we get the sniffles and run to the grocery store [...]

Different Types of Juicers – “Mastication – It’s Not What You Think”

2 by / on September 29, 2008, 8:04 am

Recently I’ve been reviewing the basics and here’s some more info that you newbies need to know (and possibly some that have experience will get something out of it to… in other words, no matter who you are, keep reading for God’s sake).  A month or so ago I gave you the lowdown on the three basic categories of juicing and their benefits; Greens, Vegetables and fruits.  In this article, we’ll look at the differences and benefits of the two basic juicer types, Centrifugal and Masticating, and we’ll give a little attention to juicing enthusiast’s preference, the Twin Gear juicers.
