Why am I a guy who is passionate about juicing?
Because in 2014 I began juicing myself back to health following years spent recoving from being hit by an SUV. I believe juicing may have saved my life … I’m certain it played a huge role in getting my life back together.
I believe Juicing can restore your life as well. This blog’s about how to do it …
This blog is about juicing, and it’s just for you if:
-You recently started juicing
-You’re just curious about fruit and vegetable juices
-You’ve been juicing for years and want fresh recipes
-You want to learn more about the health benefits of specific juices and boosters (supplements)
-You want to learn how to make your own raw Kumbacha
-You’re interested in juicing to help use nutrition to recover from a concussion or trauma
-You want to add fruit and vegetable juice into a nutritious weight-loss plan
-You think that nutrition may be a root cause of your insomnia or sleep apnea
-You’re going vegetarian(1) or vegan
-You’re into raw or paleo diets
-You suffer from a digestive disorder such as Chron’s, Ulcerative Colitis or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)(2)
-You just want to gain stamina, health, energy, and mental clarity
-You are curious about the difference between cold-press, cold-pressured, raw, centrifugal and/or masticating juicers
… and much more! …
If any of these describe you, you’ve come to the right place!
Remember when you had the energy, stamina, and mental clarity to take on the world?
Maybe that was in your teens, or twenties – you know, before work got too demanding, the kids came along, and socializing over a yummy-but-less-than-nutritious meal became the Friday night norm. Probably before you discovered beer.
But, here we are …
Nowhere near over-the-hill, young in spirit, but yet somehow not what we used to be.
I know that feeling because just a few years ago, while standing in line at my Whole Foods about to purchase dinner (meatloaf, mac-and-cheese, and green beans!), I looked into a mirror near the register and caught a glimpse of a familiar stranger.
For a brief fraction of a second, I didn’t recognize myself. I felt terrible. Even sick, wondering what happened to the me I used to know.
Little did I know that my life was about to take a terrible turn. Less than ten days later I was stunned from my sleep and my life transformed when an SUV ran through my home and literally hit me in bed.
Yes, I was hurt (the worst part was post-concussive syndrome). For brevity’s sake, I’ll save the details for future posts.
I lived in a haze for years: overweight, with high blood-pressure, poor night vision, no energy, and probably headed for an early death. Oh, and I had Crohn’s Disease(3).
This is why I sometimes say that ‘juicing may have saved my life.’
In future blogs you’ll learn how, at the very least, juicing (twice a day) gave me back my health, energy and mental clarity.
Today, I’m at a healthy weight(4), am able to exercise regularly, have good blood pressure and enjoy more energy and stamina than I’ve had in two decades … and I believe it’s because I started juicing raw vegetables and fruits.
Without any doubt, juicing changed my life!
And, I’ll wager that if you juice twice a day, it can change your life, too!
So, consider this Blog/Page about YOU(!) and your juicing journey.
Please post comments, videos, and other information you have about juicing, juicers, your nutrition journey with juicing.
Let’s stay on this journey together, and Be Fit Again!
