Lettuce Discuss… Juicing Combinations for your General Health

For best results drink 1 Pint per day but break it down to coincide with meal times so drink ¼ Pint with each meal and one before bed. As these are all good for you anyway you can’t over do it although you would become bored drinking the same thing every day.

If you suffer from depression Please avoid Cranberries, Rhubarb and Green Plums. The high acidic values will not help but can contribute to depression.

 Instructions for water intake

No water within 30 minutes prior to a meal and no water for 2 hours after a meal.

First take your weight and cut in half. This is the amount of water in ounces you will need to drink per day.

Example: 100 pounds cut in half would be 50 ounces of water per day, based on an 8 ounce glass of water you would need 6 – 7 glasses of water per day.

Upon arising in the morning drink 2 cups of warm water (you can add lemon if desired) wait 15 minutes then drink another 2 cups of warm water. After this wait half an hour before eating.

You have now consumed 4 cups of water already.

Subtract the 4 cups from the total amount you should drink per day (example 100 pounds = 6-7 cups per day).

NOW, You should start drinking your remaining water 2 hours after your meal and STOP DRINKING within 30 minutes before your meal.

Drinking with meals will wash away the enzymes you need for proper digestion.

“Lettuce” REMEMBER:

No Water 2 hours before bedtime

No Food for 3 hours before bedtime.

Lettuce Discuss… Cucumber

Lettuce Discuss… a great quote…”as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”

Cucumber is often regarded as a healthy food because it is low in calories and fat. Cucumber also contains many vitamins and minerals that make them a healthy choice for cooking and snacking.

We eat cucumbers as a way of preventive in addition to curing.

Here are health benefits of cucumber:

Keep you hydrated:
Cucumber has 96% water content that is more nutritious than regular water, which helps in keeping the body hydrated and regulating body temperature. It also helps in flushing out the toxins from the body.

 Skin care:
The high water content and the presence of certain vitamins and minerals make cucumber an essential part of skin care. Facial masks containing cucumber juice can be used for skin tightening. Ascorbic acid and caffeic acid present in cucumbers can bring down the water retention rate which in turn diminishes the puffiness and swelling under the eyes. Cucumber skin also can bring relief to the skin caused by sunburn or windburn.

 Fight cancers:
Cucumber contains lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol – three lignans that have a strong history of research in connection with reduced risk of several cancer types, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer.

 Control Blood Pressure:
Cucumber juice contains a lot of potassium, magnesium and fiber which are very helpful for regulating blood pressure. This makes cucumber especially good for treating both low blood pressure and high blood pressure.

 Beneficial for teeth and gums:
Cucumber juice is also beneficial for people with teeth and gums problems, especially in cases of pyorrhea. Cucumber is a good source of dietary fiber and this fiber massage in the teeth and gums.

 Aid digestion:
Digestive disorders, such as heartburn, gastritis, and even ulcers, can be cured by the daily consumption of fresh cucumber juice. The high water content and dietary fiber in cucumber are very effective in driving away the toxins from the digestive system and hence aid digestion. Daily consumption of cucumber can be regarded as a remedy for chronic constipation.

 Promotes joint health:
Cucumber is an excellent source of silica which is known to help promotes joint health by strengthening the connective tissues.

 Get rid of bad breath:
The photochemicals present in cucumber help kills the bacteria in your mouth which are responsible for bad breath. To get rid of bad breath, press a slice of cucumber in between your mouth with your tongue for at least 30 seconds.

 Nail care:
The high silica content in cucumber also helps prevent splitting and spoiling of nails of the fingers and toes.

 Relieve arthritis pain and gout:
Cucumber is a best ingredient for gout pain relief. When mixed with carrot juice, they can relieve gout and arthritis pain by lowering the uric acid levels.

Cures diabetes:
The cucumber juice has been found to be beneficial for the diabetic patients. This vegetable contains a hormone needed by the cells of the pancreas for producing insulin.

 Reduces cholesterol:
Researchers found that some compound called sterols in cucumber may help reduce cholesterol levels.

 Stimulate hair growth:
Cucumber contains silicon and sulphur and thus a regular intake of cucumber can help promote healthy hair growth. For best results, mix cucumber juice with the juices of carrot, lettuce or spinach.

 Acts as a diuretic:
The water content of cucumber acts as a diuretic. It encourages the elimination of waste products from the body through urination. Regular intake of cucumber helps to dissolve bladder or kidney stones.

 Aid in weight loss:
Due to its low calorie and high water content, cucumber is an ideal diet for people who looking for weight loss.

When buying cucumber, choose the ones that are firm to touch and dark green in color. Go for organically grown cucumber to get a rich taste and more nutrients content.
