Some of you may have heard of a great resource for people diagnosed with cancer called “ChrisBeatCancer.com.” But, one thing I’ve found is you don’t have to have a cancer diagnosis to benefit from the amazing things he shares on his website about eating a diet that builds health rather than eliminating health. Read this excerpt from an article he wrote on juicing:
Juicing to Beat Cancer
Juicing is the best way to extract massive amounts of nutrients from vegetables. You can get the nutrients you need, which in turn helps your body to fight cancer. Juicing makes this possible without having to sit down and eat several pounds of vegetables per day.
How Digestion Works
Let’s review the digestive process, shall we? When you chew food, you are essentially juicing food in your mouth. You are breaking fruits, veggies, (even meat and sugars) down into liquid form. Your teeth are working to break open the cell walls in your food, so the nutrients inside can be absorbed by your body. The particles that cannot be broken down by your teeth or by your digestive system, pass through. The better you chew your food before you swallow, the more that is in the juice passing into your digestive tract, and the more nutrients you are able to absorb.
A Major Component of My Anti-Cancer Diet
I drank at least eight 8 oz glasses of (freshly juiced) organic carrot and vegetable juice – every day. My strategy was to eliminate all processed food from my diet. I instead wanted to flood my body with vital raw nutrients. I did this in order to give my immune system all the fuel and firepower it needed to repair, regenerate and detoxify. Juicing releases approximately 90% of the nutrients in food. If you’re not juicing, you might get about 1/3 of the nutrients by crushing food with your teeth.
Juicing Helps the Body Absorb Nutrients
Another important factor is absorption. If your body is overloaded with toxins, you could be absorbing as little as 1% of the nutrients in the food you eat as it passes through your body. Toxins in your system can prevent nutrients from being absorbed from whole foods as they move along their way through your digestive tract. However, juices are rapidly absorbed in the digestive process.
