My 90 Year old mother insisted on helping me juice after this last hospital stay! What a precious "Baba"! She has always been so supportive of me in my health ventures.
Juicing is the easiest way to get those nutrients into the system without any work for the body. It builds healthy cells and gives the body the energy to do its healing work.
A single or twin gear juicer is best. Any juicer is better than none!
