Juicing and Cancer

A woman in my complex is getting treatment for Leukemia. Her doctors were hesitant to give her anymore chemotherapy because the first round was quite hard on her physically. She has several other health issues that make her treatment harder than a healthier person…or at least someone who only has cancer.

She and her partner came to me about a month ago. *Sue was in a wheelchair, wearing a facemask. She was quite weak. Sue knows my cancer story and wanted advice. The first thing I told her was to juice veggies. She is type 1 diabetic, but I knew drinking a small glass of green juice a day wouldn’t hurt her.

Thirty days have passed and she is getting her second round of chemo. Her doctors are amazed at her quick recovery and believe she is strong enough to continue. I know its the green juice that is helping her body rebuild her immune system. Juice is quickly absorbed by the body and doesn’t need to be digested like regular food or even smoothies. Sue was walking a mile a day within two weeks and I also attribute that to her juicing.

I am a firm believer of the benefits of drinking fresh juice. It helped me recover from my radiation and chemo treatments. If it can help a cancer patient, just think what it will do for a healthy person.  Health guru Jack LaLanne lived to be 96. He juiced before it was even popular.

This is what she puts in her daily drink: They are all organic to make sure she gets the benefits of nutrients that pesticides might take a way.
