Raw Juices Can Save Your Life
Dr. Sandra Cabot
There is no doubt in my mind that raw juicing can save your life. I have seen it work miracles in some of my patients who were stuck on the merry-go-round of drug therapy. The juice from raw fruits and vegetables has powerful healing and rejuvenating properties that can help people with all sorts of health problems.
I have known about the healing power of raw juices from a very young age, because they were the only therapy that saved my grandmotherís life. My grandmother, Susannah Dalton, was struck with a very severe form of a kidney disease called glomerulo-nephritis while she was still in her twenties. This was during the 1930ís when very little was available to treat kidney disease. In glomerulo-nephritis, the immune system attacks the tubules of the kidneys causing widespread kidney inflammation and blood and protein in the urine. Susannah was truly at deathís door when the hospital told my grandfather there was nothing further they could offer to save her life. Thankfully, my grandfather Harry was a man ahead of his time and a hospital dietician.
Harry took Susannah home and started a program of raw juicing. Harry gave her a glass of raw vegetable juice made alternatively from a vegetable growing above the ground and from a vegetable growing below the ground every hour. A miracle then started to occur, and over the next 6 weeks Susannah gradually regained her health. Her kidney inflammation settled down and her kidneys regained normal function. The concentrated vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants in the juices had calmed down her immune system and put out the fire of inflammation. Susannah Dalton was a wonderful woman and lived to the ripe old age of 78 years. It must have been a labour of love for my grandfather, as in those days one did not have the luxury of easy to use juice-extracting machines.
Often in this technological age where computers diagnose diseases and perform surgery, we tend to minimise natural therapies. It seems incredulous that the simple act of drinking raw juices could turn around severe diseases, however I have seen it work in otherwise hopeless cases.
