Get High On Juice

It‘ll change your life. As soon as you begin to incorporate freshly-extracted raw vegetable and fruit juices into your lifestyle, something amazing starts happening to you. First you notice the terrific lift that just one glass of fresh juice can give you, particularly if taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Ten to fifteen minutes after drinking fresh-made juice, you can feel yourself perking up. Your head clears. Even your vision seems sharper. These are the characteristics of the Raw Energy Rush. I never tire of initiating someone to the experience. Sometimes they’re skeptical, but are persuaded to try our freshly-extracted juice because it tastes so delicious. Half an hour later they’re back, with a gleam in their eye, demanding to know `what is the secret ingredient?’


This is the most profound mystery of the universe—and raw juice is bursting with it. Raw juice is a perfect fuel, since it’s easily assimilated to cleanse and nurture the body while supplying it with a full range of essential nutrients—especially minerals which are so lacking in most people’s diet. Raw juice also has another property—the mysterious factor X. Scientists have yet to understand it. Sometimes it’s ascribed to the high redox potential of live juices, or the inscrutable action of enzymes, or just the vibrational energy that live raw foods carry.

The nutritional and recuperative value of raw juice has become well known to doctors and natural health practitioners since the 19th century, when several of the most eminent pioneers in the field started experimenting with raw foods to improve their own health. The famous Rohsäft Kur (raw juice cure), developed by Dr Max Bircher-Benner and Dr Max Gerson in the early years of this century, is acknowledged to be the single most potent short-term antidote to fatigue and stress, but until recently it’s been the preserve of the privileged few who could afford to go to an exclusive health spa.


Never forget that body and the mind are inseparable, interdependent, synergistic parts of the same whole—YOU. People working in the soul-sapping environment of, say, a modern office building will reach for coffee and fizzy drinks in the middle of the afternoon in the hope that these will give them enough mental energy to make it through to the end of another hectic day. Then they experience a corresponding energy slump on the way home, arriving irritable and exhausted and good for nothing but going early to bed. The end result of living like this is a kind of chronic fatigue that often manifests itself as indifferent, fatalistic lethargy.

As you master the basic principles of juicing and get into the practice of drinking raw juice on a daily basis, energizing your life and rejuvenating your body, you will find yourself becoming better able to cope with the debilitating stresses of modern life. Raw juice will help you to build the stamina to cope, but it will also transform the way you see the world around you. As your body re-balances itself, you’ll find that your moods stabilize, too. Trivialities cease to upset you, and you are able to keep things in perspective. Detoxifying the system and flushing your colon with raw juice actually helps you to think more clearly and rationally, concentrate for longer, and maintain a more optimistic frame of mind. Want to experience a juice high for yourself? Start with one of these:


This is a terrific breakfast time enlivener that perks up the whole system and really wakes up your taste buds.

    Hi Leslie,
    Love your new web site. I would like to try more fresh fruit and vegetable juicing, but have a slightly over-active thyroid gland, and my blood sugar is too high (7.0). Are there any fruit and vegetables that I should avoid?

      Great question Pamela…best that you stress the green vegetable juices together with fruits like apples, pears, berries, and melons (not watermelon) then see how you get on…by all means use the odd carrot to begin with until you get used to and come to love the green juices. Ginger is great (small amounts of fresh stuff) since it enhances digestion and immunity… stay completely away from pineapple and grapes since they are so high glycemic…get back to me and fill me in on your experience in a couple of weeks if you will…I am interested to know…Leslie x
