An Alternative to Straight Juicing

Vitamix Machine:

An alternative or supplement to juicing that is superior in my opinion is using the Vitamix machine to break up the fiber and include that in your consumption.

Juicing throws away all fiber. Which means that any sugar that's in the product you're juicing is not buffered by the fiber.

Since cancer is a pancreatic disease and the pancreas is also responsible for producing insulin and managing blood sugar I don't recommend stressing it with regular carrot and apple juice.

One of the main reasons for

juice is to get enzymes. Since enzymes are very fragile after they have been extracted from the food according to Gerson Therapy all juices should be fresh and consumed immediately after removal from the machine. Most people are unable to comply with this rule.

Green juices are fine as they are not going to produce an insulin response.

In the Gerson clinic, salads and baked potatoes are given three times a day. Apples, bananas, grapes and a host of other fruits are encouraged throughout the day. Juices thirteen times a day alternating vegetable and fruit (liver and carrot two times a day when the liver was readily available) these were fresh made and consumed in 8-ounce portions, Insulin response was not a problem due to the adjacent consumption of foods.

What I regularly hear from patients is there putting together a 32-ounce container of juice and taking with them. By the time they finish it many of the enzymes have diminished in their effectiveness.

The new Vitamix 2017

The new version is guaranteed for ten years. It also is excellent for making homemade raw almond butter. The trick is, to begin with, 15 seconds on 10 (highest speed) and then adjust speed down to speed 5 and run until three minutes on the display.

Start with one pound (16 ounces) raw unpasteurized almonds (I store in the freezer.)

Then pause for twenty minutes. to allow cooling.

Then speed 5 and run until three minutes on the display.

Then pause for twenty minutes. to allow cooling.

Then speed 5 and run until three minutes on the display.

At this point, it will likely be flowing very well.

I pour into a 16-ounce wide mouth mason jar and when cool enough place in refrigerator.
