Healing Cancer From the Inside Out: Green Juicing

Study after study show that a high intake of fresh fruit and vegetables can lower the incidence of chronic conditions like cancer. Additionally, the more colorful and natural your diet (especially nutrient and antioxidant-rich produce), the healthier and more youthful you feel. One great way to increase your daily consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables is through juicing.

Freshly made juices are concentrated nutritional elixirs that heal and rejuvenate the body and help bring balance to all the body’s cells. Juicing is also one of the easiest, most efficient, and most delicious ways to ensure that you are meeting your daily intake of fresh produce.

The Benefits of Juicing

  • Juice provides an abundance of water.
  • The body can quickly absorb larger amounts of nutrients from juices than from solid foods because the digestive process necessary when you eat whole foods is bypassed. This is especially helpful during periods of healing.
  • Vegetable juices are an excellent source of a high concentration of important vitamins and minerals. They are also a good source of antioxidants and phytonutrients (substances that protect the body’s cells from disease, injury, and pollution).

Selecting a Juicer

  • Twin Gear Juicer: This type of juicer uses stainless steel twin gears to squeeze and press fruits and vegetables. The slow speed of the gears does not create excess heat or free radicals in juice, therefore preserving the most nutrients. It juices all fruits and vegetables, including wheatgrass and leafy greens, makes pasta/noodles, nut butters, and frozen fruit desserts. This is our preferred juicer because of the high nutrient value and high yield. Juice may be stored for up to 3 days! Example: Green Star
  • Single Gear Juicer – This juicer crushes and presses, creating no heat, and extracts juice from fruits, vegetables, wheatgrass, and other leafy greens. It also makes pasta/noodles, grinds herbs and seasonings, purees baby food, minces meats, grinds coffee, and makes desserts from frozen fruit. The low speed helps to make a juice that maintains essential nutrients. It’s easy to use and clean. Example: Samson

There are other juicers on the market that will be fine for making juice. The above two are Hope4Cancer’s top choices. The most important thing is simply that you begin incorporating fresh green juices into your daily diet.

  1. I just bought a NutriBullet which is a nutrition extractor with a large recipes book. Do you think it is as good and helpful as a juicer? I have two pre-cancer diseases and I am trying all I know to do and can to avoid the worst. I receive Mr.Ty Bollinger’s news email messages. Thank you for @your advise.

  2. Sorry, maybe I wrote my comment in the wrong place. About the juicer you advise in your diet. Was I wrong having bought a nutrition extractor versus a juicer? I had not read your Healing Cancer from the Inside Out juice diet yet. Thank you for your reply.

    1. Hi Mirella, Thank you for the question! Whether you choose the Nutribullet or a juicer really depends on your goal. Let us classify the two as follows: juicing has therapeutic and nutritional value, while a nutrition extractor like Nutribullet has nutritional value.
      Let me explain what I mean.

      If your goal is to consume whole foods, including the pulp/fiber content, in a concentrated mix, then a nutrition extractor should be your choice. We should all be eating plenty of fiber from plants and vegetables, and this is a really good and delicious way to do it. Adding smoothies and shakes using a nutribullet as meal alternatives or complements in your regular everyday meal habits is a wonderful idea.

      Juicing, on the other hand, leaves all the pulp and fiber out and focuses on delivering only the juice. Many experts vouch for the claim that juicers are able to break down plant cell walls to release nutritional content (including enzymes and nucleic acids) from within the plant cells. While this could be nutritionally beneficial for anybody, therapeutically this is especially important for patients facing chronic diseases with compromised ability to digest or absorb nutrients effectively. Juicing provides a concentrated and easy way to assimilate nutrition that would otherwise be impossible to accomplish. Because of its high and pure nutritional content, juicing can be used as a detox fasting routine that allows the body to effectively shed toxins. If you choose juicing as your option, you must choose your juicer very carefully, because it is very easy to break down the released cellular nutrients if the machine overheats in the process of juicing, which takes away from the effectiveness of the process.

      So the scenarios of using both are quite different – i hope the above description helps you decide what is best for you.
