Hey curious minds!
Ok, so I keep mentioning on my social media (insta@mojowellbeing) about my favourite juice combo – beets, carrots and cucumber. I understand that people on social media wont spend longer than about 10 seconds to actually read a caption before ‘double-tapping’ and moving on…so here we are!
I’ve decided one of my first blog posts will concentrate on the amazing qualities of this juice and why people should try this specific combination. I’ve used the book ‘The Tao of health, sex and longevity’ by Daniel Reid as my source. I hope you find it useful!
Carrots (10oz), Beets (3oz) and Cucumber (3oz) is the perfect ratio; this can be up scaled easily and the ingredients can be found in almost every half decent veg shop. You should try to always use organic produce and give it a light brush under the tap before juicing.
I’m going to lay out 10 reasons why you should juice this combo specifically by naming the ailments first, describing what causes it second, and finally offering an explanation as to WHY this combination can help you.
1.Colic and Gastritis – both issues are caused by gas due to fermentation and putrefaction of poorly combined foods in the gut.
WHY? This juice blend is rich in sodium, potassium and phosphorous – which all neutralise acids, help to expel gas and promote peristalsis (the pushing of foods through our digestive tract).
2.Obesity – an excess of adipose tissue due to excessive consumption of starch, sugar and poor food combinations.
WHY? A symptom of obesity is severe acidosis in the blood, this juice blend has alkaline properties that can assist the kidneys in promoting excretion of waste.
3.Cystitis – a condition of excess acidity in the bladder due to incomplete digestion of meats and starches which cause uric acid crystals to irritate the lining of the bladder.
WHY? This juice blend neutralizes the excess uric acid that inflames the kidneys and bladder.
4.Gout – inflammation of bones and ligaments in joints, owing to formation of acid crystals. Caused mainly by too much fatty meat, salt and alcohol.
WHY? The juice has pH balancing qualities that can help to dissolve the acid crystals in the joints and ligaments.
5.Rheumatism – related to gout, but applied in the muscles rather than bones and joints. Rheumatism can be enhances by further consumption of cooked animal proteins, which cannot be digested when the system is saturated with uric acid.
WHY? This juice has pH balancing qualities that help to dissolve the acid crystals in the muscles.
6.Toxemia – ‘general’ toxicity throughout the system. This condition is due to a huge accumulation of toxic waste in the intestines characterised by, chronic fatigue, depression, skin eruptions, body odour, bad breath and poor digestion.
WHY? This combination of veggies when juiced cleanses the bowels and builds stronger blood plasma.
7.Headaches – most are caused by excess pressure in the tiny capillaries that feed the brain; this pressure is caused by the impurities in the bloodstream, which not only block the tiny capillaries but also deprive the brain of glucose and oxygen.
WHY? Improvements in the ability of the kidneys to cleanse the blood of the impurities that often cause headaches are observed with this juice. It also contributes to increasing haemoglobin levels in blood that enhances oxygen supplies to the brain.
8.Heart Disease – the clogging of blood vessels that deprive the heart, muscles and valves of oxygen. The excessive strain on the pump leads to heart exhaustion and disease, the primary source of this ‘clogging’ is a diet composed of denatured and cooked foods.
WHY? This juice is the most potent blend of juices for potassium, which quickly restores blood pH and helps remove deposits for blood vessels and builds blood haemoglobin levels.
9.Hypertension – an irritation of various nerves centres in the body, this is owing to nutritional deficiency, retention of toxic wastes and a lack of organic alkaline elements.
WHY? Beet, carrot and cucumber juice helps to eliminate excess acidity and provides essential organic minerals and enzymes which enhance the nervous system functions.
10.Impotence – a condition of male sexual dysfunction, contributing factors are nervous exhaustion, depletion of sexual glands, insufficient nutrition for the reproductive organs and excess toxicity in the blood.
WHY? Clean the urogenital canal, bladder, prostate, suprarenal glands and other parts directly affected by excess acid toxicity with beet, carrot and cucumber juice. Furthermore, it provides vital nutrients for the repair and maintenance of those parts.
