Apples are a good source of many nutrients including Vitamins B1,B2,B5,B6, Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Chlorine, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus,Potassium, Silicon, Sodium and Sulphur. Apples are also a great source of soluble fibre which is helpful in keeping bowel movements regular as well as helping to remove toxins from the bowels and Apple Juices also contains malic acid, ellagic acid, malic acid, chlorogenic acid, and quercetin. Apples can be high in sugar so if you have sugar issues you should not use too much apple juice. Even people who don’t think they have blood sugar or weight issues should not be drinking gallons of apple juice per day. Also, apples are highly sprayed with many chemical pesticides so always use organic and/or wash well and peel (you will loose some of the benefits by doing this).

Apple seeds contain cyanide. Some people advise to take these out before juicing. I personally do not but you can decide for yourself if you wish to do this. Also, some apples contain a wax on their skin that can be hard to remove and if not organic, this waxy layer is said to hold pesticides in the apple. Always use organic apples when you can.

Apricot Profile

Apricot Profile

Name : Apricot  

Apricots are a delicious golden orange fruit that tastes divine when juiced. Apricots are a great source of carotenoids and have been used over the years for eye health, skin health and anemia in the most part. Apricots kernel, which is the inner part of the seed (always remove) have been a controversial topic. The stones/kernel are a rich source of protein and fat and is high in vitamin B17 also known as laetrile. There have been books written specifically about Laetrile as a cancer therapy. People claim to have used the apricot kernel to shrink tumours. The kernels can be ground up and taken with water, in a capsule or with a little raw honey.

Banana Profile

Banana Profile

Name : Banana  

Bananas are well known for their potassium content and this is essential for normal muscular function in voluntary and non voluntary muscles. Bananas do not juice well so I only use them when making a smoothies where I add them to the blender. Bananas also contain quite allot of sugar so I do not use too many of them. A good source of fibre and all B vitamins although B12 and B5 are present in small amounts, bananas add a fantastic flavour to any smoothie and are a good choice post work out for  people who don’t have sugar regulating problems.

Blue Berries Profile

Blue Berry Profile

Name : Blue Berries  

 Blue Berries are well known as a muffin filling but they are so much more than this. Blue berries are potent free radical scavengers and are in current research for their role in preventing Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and hear disease as well as degenerative eye disease and much more. Blue berries have an ORAC value of 100 g fresh blueberries is 5562 TE . Blue berries positive health benefits are being linked to Their antioxidant value largely derived from poly-phenolic anthocyanidin compounds such as chlorogenic acid, tannins, myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol. These little blue/ purple berries are well worth adding to your diet. Although blue berry juice is delicious they do not juice particularly well especially in centrifugal juicers so they are best kept for blending into smoothies or eating how they are, but it is worth making a glass of blue berry juice at least once (this may be very expensive as it can be hard to extract the juice from these little berries)

Pioneers Of Juice Therapy

Pioneers Of Juice Therapy


 Today many people from the UK may know of a person or two that promotes juicing. I mean real Juicing of fresh organic vegetables and fruits. Unfortunately Most people don’t know the difference between buying a branded orange juice from the store and juicing fresh vegetables and  oranges, and who can blame them? It seems that the people in charge of our great country, as well as those in charge of the USand just about every other country, never talk of the benefits of consuming fresh raw juices.

 The first big name I heard about with regards to juicing was Jay Kordich. Jay has a great story of how he used juicing or juice therapy to over come cancer as a young man. He is now in his 80’s doing very well and has never looked back. Jay was well known and on TV allot and was known as ‘The Juice man’ after decades on TV jay seemed to disappear before fairly recently making a come back. Now ‘The Juice Daddy’ is once again on the surge along with his wife Linda. They are all over YouTube, selling a new juice machine that they helped design; they are bringing out new books and spreading the word once again.

     It’s great to see them about and you can learn tons from these two very experienced juicers. Jay is the last real connection to the origins of juice therapy. Other great names such as Norman Walker, who many people regard as the founder of juicing and Dr max Gerson who really brought juicing to the masses as a medical tool, and Jay the Juice Daddy Kordich has worked with both of these men. Jay really is a wealth of knowledge and for me one of the pioneers of putting the message out to the masses.  Below are some other people that have helped educate and promote juicing therapy to the masses :

  Dr Norman Walker


Dr Norman walker was the original juice man. Born in 1886 Norman died in 1985 at the grand old age of 99 apparently in very good health and mental state. Dr Norman Walker First started squeezing the juice from fruits and vegetables around the early 1900’s after apparently noticing how much moisture was left on the underside of carrot peel and deciding to grid the peel down to remove the juice. From there, the rest as they say is history and after around 70 years or more of study he was still advocating the importance of fresh, raw, enzyme rich, nutrient dense foods and juice for health and longevity. 
    After moving to the US in 1910 from England, Dr Walker had various jobs but continued his pursuit of studying the effects of fresh juice. By the 1930’s Walker had formulated many specific combinations of fruit and vegetable juices to help restore the body and reverse many diseases. He opened a business selling fresh juices and delivering them to people’s homes around the same decade as well as designing his own juice machine, The Norwalk that is a two part juicer that first grinds the vegetables before then pressing them to release their juice. Some people still think this is one of the very best juice machines today in use today.

       In the 1940’s Walker bought an old cotton mill and began using it as a juice plant but the local authorities clamped down on him and his unpasteurized juices (not for the first time in his career) so he sold his share of the mill and started his own publication with the aim of spreading the word on juicing and health. It was also in the 1940’s where Dr Walker met The Juice Daddy Jay Kordich after Jay had already used Juice therapy under the guidance of Dr Max Gerson to cure his bowel cancer. Jay and Dr Walker studied and worked together for the next four decades or so. 

Dr Max Gerson

  Born in Germany in 1881 Max Gerson first started using the power of juicing to combat headaches and migraines but soon moved on to other diseases after one of Gersons patients being treated for his migraines found that whilst using the therapy his tuberculosis cleared up.

     After much success Gerson caught the attention of famed thoracic surgeon, Ferdinand Sauerbruch, M.D.
Under  Sauerbruch’s supervision, Dr. Gerson established a special skin tuberculosis treatment program at the Munich University Hospital. In a carefully monitored clinical trial, 446 out of 450 skin tuberculosis patients treated with the Gerson diet recovered completely. Dr. Sauerbruch and Dr. Gerson simultaneously published articles in a dozen of the world’s leading medical journals, establishing the Gerson treatment as the first cure for skin tuberculosis.

Later Dr Gerson became known to Nobel Prize winner Albert Schweitzer, M.D., by curing Schweitzer’s wife of lung tuberculosis after all conventional treatments had failed. Gerson and Schweitzer remained friends for life, and maintained regular correspondence.  Dr Gerson was having great success and in 1938, Dr. Gerson passed his boards and was licensed to practice in the state of New York. Apparently, for around twenty years, he treated hundreds of cancer patients who had been given up to die after all conventional treatments had failed.

     In 1958 Dr Gerson had been getting much success but no where near enough recognition in the main stream medical fraternity and although successful, he was still thought of as having ‘radical’ ideas in that foods could help cure the body of disease. In 1958, after thirty years of clinical experimentation, Gerson published “A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases”.  This medical monograph details the theories, treatment, and results achieved by a great physician. Gerson died in 1959 in suspicious circumstances having been said to have been poisoned with arsenic. 

 The Gerson was lives on in Max Gersons daughter Charlotte who now in her 80’s has been spreading the word since her father’s death. The Gerson therapy is probably the best known Cancer treatment in the world and includes lots of juicing of fresh vegetables and fruits but it is not solely a ‘Juice diet’ Still today the mainstream medical establishment do not accept the Gerson therapy or any other ‘alternative’ therapy as a possible was to help treat disease. Some people speculate that this is purely a matter of money, as the pharmaceutical companies that run the medical industry can’t make money if people are keeping themselves free from sickness or even curing themselves but eating and drinking fresh, whole foods.  Charlotte has continued her relationship with Joy Kordich through out the years, rallying together to spread the message about juicing 

  Jay Kordich 

Jay is the biggest promoter of juicing around today!  As you have read above, Jay  Kordich is a living legend in the Juicing world with so much knowledge having been around so long but also having worked with the genius founders of juicing. 
  Born in  1923 just outside San Diego, California In 1948 at the age of 25, Jay was diagnosed with a serious illness and was told he may not have long to live. After reviewing all the treatments available, he left California and traveled to New York City to see Dr. Max Gerson who was treating terminally ill patients with fresh raw juices and healthy cleansing diets. At that time I can only imagine how obscure this idea must have seemed, maybe even more so than today. 

      Jay became his patient and immediately began a regimen of large doses of raw carrot & apple juice. It wasn’t long before Jay’s health was restored and the direction of his life was changed forever. It is now 2012 and Jay is once again working hard to spread the word of juice therapy with his wife Linda. Striding into his 9th decade jay shows no signs of stopping what he is doing and since we lost the legend that is Jack lalane last year, Jay is now just about the only legend left from an era long gone.  With every year Jay Strides through life with his legendary energy and enthusiasm for life and for juicing he is teaching us all how it’s done.  Jay’s story is quite amazing and you should check out his work and contact Jay and Linda for the best tips for using juice therapy to improve your health

Sunday 16th Jan 2011 – The Day Before…..

Well today is the day before. I am looking forward to starting tomorrow, I have had three  juices today and they really do make me feel good, placebo? possibly, or a sugar rush maybe? I made a shurbert lemonade with a whole small lemon and two apples and a while later i was feeling very good.   

  I went to the supermarket to by the stuff and every one was staring at my fully loaded green trolley! I was buying the list for two people as my girlfriend is also trying this severn day juice diet (although she has just told me that she has two lunch meetings this week but I have told her she’s only to have JUICE!) so i bought 70 apples, 5 cucumbers, 2 celerey, 12 lines, spinach, kale, parsley etc etc. 

 I know a bit about diet and nutrition and I am a bit of a weight lifter ( A very little bit recently) and I know the importance of Fats and Proteins so I have had to try very hard not to  modify this juice diet. I wanted to add the odd raw egg, scoop of whey or BCAA’s, some coconut oil, olive oil, walnut oil etc but i decided not to. It is only 7 days and  I want to give a good honest review about the whole  7lbs in 7 days diet and suggested exercise. 

 I Will no doubt experiment some more and improve on this program but for now,  i’m ready to start in the morning, jump on the scales and the juice my self to huge energy and mental clarity!! (apparently)
