In recent years, research has proven that drinking freshly-extracted juices is an effective way for our bodies to absorb nutrients. And for those who are not into fruits and vegetables, juicing is a great way to include them into your diets.
For many years, Sara Ding had been in poor health. Looking at the multitude of pills and medication she was taking, she wondered if there was a better way to get healthy. Thus began her juicing journey. Juicing for Health, part of the MPH Masterclass Kitchens series, contains recipes for a selection of juices for some common ailments: anaemia, the flu, diabetes, gout and high blood pressure, as well as those that boost bone health and improve skin complexion.
“Our bodies are designed with a built-in intelligence that knows how to self- repair, self-heal, self-build and self-regenerate,” Ding, the certified Health Coach and Nutritional Consultant, writes. “Our duty then, is to feed our bodies with the right nutrients for it to do its job well.”
Ding introduces us to the types of juicing machines available out there and explains why some are better than others. She also sheds light on the curative properties of some fruits and vegetables, and outlines the protocols of proper and safe juicing.
“The beauty of these juice recipes is that they are also designed to taste delicious, so that you can drink them for preventive health maintenance, even if you don’t have the ailments for which they were created to alleviate,” says Ding.
“I hope this book will convince you to make juicing a lifestyle.” Ding also stressed that, while drinking fresh juices is absolutely beneficial to our bodies, she does not advocate that one should just drink only juice and not eat whole fruits and vegetables. Drinking juices is encouraged because it provides almost immediate absorption of high quality nutrients for the body. When it comes to fibre needs, it is important that one should also consume whole fruits and vegetables.
