What is juicing?

(Healingtalks) Juicing is the process of squeezing  juice from your fruits and vegetable to yield the highest, most ALIVE concentration of nutrients and micro-nutrients. It’s health benefits seem endless because they are! They can easily be prepared to yield creative combinations with refreshing tastes that give your a live-charging BOOST.

Reasons for juicing

If  you want to simply add juicing to your daily diet or go on a juice detox/feast, here are some motivating reasons why:

  • Helps absorb more fresh nutrients – Many health practitioners recommend eating 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day to prevent cancer and other degenerative diseases.
  • Gets more variety of nutrients into your body- Juicing means you can consume not only a higher amount but also a greater variety of fresh nutrients.
  • Places less stress on your digestive system – Juicing gives your digestive system a rest, including the stomach, intestines, pancreas, gallbladder and liver. During this process, your cells have the time to catch up with their work and detoxify.
  • Great way to embrace the raw food culture. When food is cooked at temperatures above 114 degrees, the enzymes are destroyed by the heat (HealthyJuicer).
  • Rich in enzymes –  Enzymes have the vital role of converting food into body tissue and energy.  So by increasing your bodies intake of enzymes you will feel healthy and revitalised.
  • Full of phytochemicals – Juicing ensures that the body is getting sufficient amounts of phytochemicals, substances in plants that are  among the most powerful aides to fighting disease (Best of Juicing). The phytochemicals that researchers have uncovered are changing the way we think about food. Bok choy, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, collards, kale, kohlrabi, mustard greens, rutabaga, turnip greens, red beets, peppers, garlic, onions, leeks, and chives are but a few of the vegetables that have cancer-preventing phytochemicals. Citrus fruits have substances that can help your body remove carcinogens. Grapes contain a phytochemical that appears to protect each cells’ DNA from damage (HealthyJuicer). Research also suggests phytochemicals hold the key to preventing some of diseases such as heart disease, asthma, arthritis, and allergies (Living and Raw Foods).
  • Used for weight loss  – Because it is such a healthy practice it has also been used as a weight loss technique.
  • A way to overcome chronic ills – This is because, most important of all, the juicing transmits the life-force of plants straight into us. The reason why is explained in Nathan Batalion’s (Healingtalks editor) unique and revolutionary life-and-consciousness-centered vision of nature.  Here is a little glimpse of it:

    Drink green juice for life

  • Drinking for life - Imagine  that at the core of nature is what we all experience inside, and at every moment, as “consciousness:”  This means consciousness and not matter and energy defined mathematically as in physics or chemistry is at the core of things. Think of that “consciousness” first a little abstractly or universally before we apply it to juicing. So the abstract or mountain-top distant definition is that of a  universal relationship of connection. What the heck does that mean? Next imagine that this universal principle of connection is what really connects us deep inside to ourselves and to the world around us as a whole – creating the essence of an ORGANIC LIVING ORGANISMS. As living organisms we feel joy and pain. We cry when our feelings are torn apart. We suffer when our body is cut apart. Machines do not feel this pain, why we use bulldozers made of steel to lift heavy objects. They are not living, conscious organisms, Thirdly, imagine that past  the conventional way of looking at things, the mathematical view of physics and chemistry that centrally uses math symbols  (and abstractly as pointing to universal relationships of separation) is what  leads us to create things made of separate parts or MACHINES. Again how does all this relate to juicing? VERY POWERFULLY. Machines can run on petroleum and we can run on juices. First the simpler living forms tend to be more simply connected in comparison to complicated life forms. wheatgrass
  • Thus drinking grass juices – The juice of a single blade of grass has more healing power than a stalk of corn. However, when a grass joints (splits it two) it has less healing or connective life-force power. This can be shown with live microscopy. It is thus the juice of the simpler plants, the grasses, that carry the greatest life force. Secondly, the chief medium for carrying that life force, that connected consciousness, is the plant’s juices for an important reason,. This is  because the liquid portion runs connectively through the plant to transmit life. Note that with a liquid, a separate drop loses its separativity because the fluid juice is THE connective medium that holds and transmits the life force.

Get that life force into our body super-charged!

So there are fabulous reasons to juice up and especially with simple, living greens. But be sure to “do it right.”

  • Drink your juices fresh, within 20 minutes of making drink the juice because the rest of the universe will grab that life force away from the juices once they are liberated from their protective fiber.  Due to a busy schedule, if you can’t make all your juices fresh, put them in tightly closed canning jars and filled to the top to cut down on oxidation and  add a high quality anti-oxidant powder like Vitamin C.
  • Use a slow juicer – It is best to use a slow churning juicer (single or double auger) to release the juice without doing high-heat or oxidation harm to the same.
  • Understand why this drinking of only fresh juices is vitally important in the context of a different life-centered worldview – Knowing this we keep better on track. Nathan explains that as the juice oxidates, its actually loses its “consciousness” or connectedness or life force. This is similar to what happens when an apple turns brown within minutes of being cut open. It happens more intensely with juices and we explain it chemically when he better explanation occurs in a different life-centered vision. Thus in Nathan’s revolutionary and living model of nature, oxygen is the bridge between the chemical/mechanical/atomic understanding and his consciousness-life-centered model – akin to the ancient Essene view.  Nathan explains why this is a more rational (not mystical) view  than that of Sir Isaac Newton’s  mathematical foundations for all the science. We really cannot best connect our cosmic vision of nature using our most “universal abstractions of separations” which is what math symbols are stripped naked- and any more than we can best glue something broken together using our sharpest chainsaw. This is why even a few Nobel-prize winning physicists and chemists have gotten themselves “lost in their world of inner consciousness” and have fallen prey to  Alzheimer’s disease and have died thereof. Nathan also claims this is why the allopathic medical model doesn’t essentially work with depth chronic ills, and why the natural one does. In the meantime we are mislead  – told to pop pills rather than drink green juices – based on a deeply false worldview that materializes both runaway health epidemics and the pollution of our planet.

  • Green juices are the best – This is because green is the middle, the most connective, the most healing and consciousness transmitting  color. In the  field of color therapy, green pulls the color separations back together toward colorless or white light. The most separative or opposite colors of the rainbow, red and violet, will reunite (return to white light) only in the presence of green, the color neutralizer in radiant light or the ultimate reconnecting/healing color.
  • Use an alkaline base – Try cucumber or celery as a juice base. Acidity represents something fiery, which consumers the light or the consciousness/life force.
  • Emphasize low-glycemic juices – more veggies than sweet fruits. Sugar, even fruit sugars, tend to leave acid residues in the body and they feed fungus and lower life forms.
  • Add the juice of green sprouts and grasses – These will supercharge your drink with life energy.

Following his unique philosophy and related juicing approach, some years ago Nathan helped fund and organize the Gerson Healing Center at Sedona where Charlotte Gerson set up a juicing/healing protocol in the US based on her father’s groundbreaking work – and assisting many patients to reverse their life-threatening, chronic ill….  or as Charlotte explains it, “curing the incurable.” (Gerson)

An inspirational story

fat-sick-and-nearly-dead

Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, a film by Joe Cross tells the story of an unhealthy, unhappy overweight man determined to rid himself of prescription medication and let his body heal. His method, 60 days juicing fresh and green, with fruit and vegetable ingredients, was done while driving 3,000 miles across America. During this trip he talked to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition, Phil Staples. After taking up the diet, Phil lost a total of 202lbs and Joe, 85lbs and began to enjoy life medication-free.
