4 Healing Juice Recipes

By Lucy Rose Clinic

November 7, 2020

Juicing is an excellent addition to any healing program – but it needs to be done right.

Buying premade juices from a store doesn’t give the same benefits, they are typically very high in sugars, and devoid of the amazing ‘enzymes’ that fresh pressed juice contains.

Juicing is particularly helpful for people who are depleted – adrenal fatigue, chronic illness, digestive problems or sluggish detoxification are some examples.

People who are healthy and full of vitality will still benefit from juices, but they can opt for fiber rich smoothies instead. Composition of nutrients and fiber are very different in ether version. Juice has no competition for absorption and high nutrients as more produce is needed to make it, whereas smoothies will be absorbed much slower. 

Juicing is not a meal replacement. It is often recommended between meals, or 30 minutes before the meal.

Smoothies can be a meal replacement, we recommend adding a quality protein powder if using it as a meal replacement. Quantities will vary if you decide to blend – and you will need to add a bit of water to the preferred consistency.

Picking a Juicer

Centrifugal juicers are by far the most common and most popular type of home juicer. These machines are easy to use, relatively easy to clean, and quite affordable. However, due to the high speed of the blade, these destroy most of the enzyme due to heat friction, so you should drink the juice immediately for health benefits.

Masticating juicers or cold-press juicers are best suited for anyone who wants to juice just about anything, including leafy greens, and wants the best possible flavor and texture. They cost a little more and juicing is slower, but enzymes are better preserved and you can even store the juice in the fridge for up to 2 days and still get most of the enzymes.

Enzymes and Why They Matter

When it comes to digestion, the thought is that enzymes in fresh vegetable juice not only give the digestive system a rest but also improve the digestive process and increase nutrient absorption.
