Naturopathic Tip of the Month: Juicing
Juicing is a great way to stimulate and encourage your entire body system to eliminate toxins and to supply your body with potent, easy to use nutrients (including antioxidants that fight disease). The powerful nutrient boost fresh juices provide make juicing on a regular basis an excellent part of any health routine. Aim to consume your fresh juice within ½ hour of making – once the juice is exposed to air it begins to lose its beneficial effects due to oxidization. Try making your own ‘greens’ drink to start your summer mornings off on the right foot;
Greens Drink (taken from Michael Murray N.D., Therapeutic Juices)
•Handful of parsley/wheatgrass
•2 kale leaves
•2 Granny Smith apples (cut into wedges)
•Handful of spinach
Combine all in juicer and enjoy!
