Does juicing cure cancer? That’s a bold question to ask, and it’s one the modern medical establishment used to ignore. There isn’t much money in curing cancer with vegetable juice, after all, and BigPharma has a bottom line to worry about. Doctors are well-meaning but ultimately they do what drug companies tell them to do. Doctors, just like the rest of us, have bills to pay.
Juicing has been shown to help treat cancer, as vegetables have anti-cancer properties and they boost your immune system. See, Juicing Greens Can Prevent Cancer. Juicing is a helpful for cancer patients because juicing “overloads” the body’s system with nutrition. After all, a mere 8 ounces of juice has as much nutrition as 5 servings of vegetables. See, How Many Servings of Vegetables are in Juice?
One man, who blogs at Chris Beats Cancer, put theory into practice and used juice to cure his cancer. Instead of undergoing chemotherapy, Chris drank massive amounts of juice – approximately 64 ounces (or a half gallon) of juice, every day, for 2 years.
Chris drank the same juice each day.
Chris’ Anti-Cancer Juice Recipe:
- 5 Carrots
- 5 Celery Stalks
- 1/4 of a Beet (root and top),
- small slice of Ginger Root (about the size of a U.S. quarter).
(His juice sounds a lot like our Real V8 Juice, doesn’t it?)
That juice recipe is enough for one, 8-ounce glass of juice. If you want to drink as much juice as Chris, use 8 times as much produce.
Chris would make all of his juice in the morning, seal his juice in mason jars, and drink juice throughout the day.
Chris believes that cancer patients shouldn’t juice fruit to cure cancer because fresh-pressed fruit juice contains sugar, and sugar can feed cancer. Chris believes people who want to cure cancer by juicing should, “Juice vegetables and eat fruit,” although he would also make fruit smoothies.
