If you’re living with any type of chronic illness, I can’t recommend juicing highly enough. Juicing organic fruits and vegetables at home is one of the best ways to infuse your body with the nutrition it needs to heal.
Oftentimes, people living with an autoimmune disease will also have chronic digestive problems that prevent the proper uptake of nutrients. When this is the case, even the healthiest diet and premium supplements will be a waste of money since your body won’t be able to absorb them. This is where organic juicing comes in.
I love my Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor. It’s easy to use, easy to clean, and delightfully pulverizes just about any fruit or vegetable you have a mind to put in there. And unlike cheaper juicers, this one has serious staying power.
I’ve had mine now for almost three years, and when a relative of mine had cancer, I used it every week to prepare fresh juice for her. It was completely worth the 59-dollar investment at the time. (You can find them for less if you buy used.)
If you’ve been avoiding organic juicing because you’re intimidated by the process, this short instructional video should put your concerns to rest.
