The Best Juicing Recipes for Cancer

If you have come to this article because you, a friend or relative has been diagnosed with cancer, then I sincerely hope that you find the natural methods to help you cure this disease. I will say up front that I am in no way qualified to give you the best juicing recipes for cancer or any other natural methods that may help cure cancer. I will, however, recommend some great books on this subject that are among the best in their field. Even though juicing has been shown to be effective for cancer prevention and even cure, it needs to be part of a much bigger picture that includes nutrition among other factors. These great books take a comprehensive and detailed view of curing cancer naturally and holistically.

The Complete Cancer Cleanse – Cherie Calbom

The Complete Cancer Cleanse is a best selling book on the subject of nutrition and cancer. Written by Cherie Calbom, a lady whose dedication to prevention and the cure of cancer is second to none. Her own words clearly explains where her dedication to this subject came from “I only new my mother was dead. At six, I had no idea what breast cancer was, but it had killed her. That was my defining moment – one that shaped my life. From that time on I wanted to know what cancer was, what caused it, how it could be prevented, and how it could be cured.”

The Breuss Cancer Cure – Rudolph Breuss

Naturopathic practitioner Rudolf Breuss developed a 42-day juice fasting program to nourish the body but starve cancer. He also formulated variations for different kinds of cancer. Following his instructions exactly was crucial to success. Although fasting seems irrational when the body is wasting away, Breuss’ patients felt more alert and energetic as soon as they began the treatment. They continued to feel well throughout their fast. Throughout the book their many grateful letters testify to complete recoveries. This title also contains Breuss’ naturopathic and sometimes unusual treatment suggestions for a wide range of conditions from leukemia to rheumatism, infertility to cramps. His book reflects a lifetime of practice.

Lycopene Juicing Recipes for Cancer Prevention

Pink GrapefruitPhytochemicals have become the new word on the street when it comes to the healing properties of fruits, vegetables and other plant based foods. Dr Oz often talks about them, especially about Lycopene – the phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red colored produce. However, there are many phytochemicals and research studies showing their health benefits continue to grow.

Anti-Cancer Properties
People who eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables are considerably less likely to develop cancers. Some health experts attribute this to the phytochemical content in fruits and vegetables. The cancer prevention properties in phytochemicals is one key area of research. Lycopene is one of these phytochemicals that is attributed with anti-cancer properties.

Tomatoes on the vineThough tomatoes have received a lot of attention for their high lycopene content, other fruits also provide a good source of this phytochemical. Pink grapefruit, watermelon, apricots and papaya also contain fair amounts of lycopene. Studies show that the intake of lycopene can decrease one’s risk of developing certain cancers, particularly lung, stomach, bladder, skin, and prostate cancer. For instance, general population studies have shown that areas where people consume a lot of tomatoes and have high blood levels of lycopene, are less likely to develop cancer.

Juicing for Lycopene

Juicing is a great way to get lycopene into your diet. Juicing helps release the lycopene from the fruits and vegetables to make it more available for digesting and assimilating into the cells. This is especially true for tomatoes, which have been shown to release more of their lycopene content when juiced or cooked rather than eating the whole raw fruit. Here are 5 juicer recipes that will provide you with lycopene.

Juicing Recipes #1 – Tomato Juice
Tomato Juice
5 large tomatoes
(add more if using smaller tomatoes)

Remove stems, wash thoroughly and juice!

Juicing Recipes #2 – Watermelon
1/4 of medium sized watermelon

Use only the flesh and not the rind for juicing. The rind will add a sour taste if juiced. The lycopene is found in the flesh of the watermelon and responsible for its reddish color. Melon doesn’t digest so great with other foods, so it is a good idea to drink it alone.

Juicing Recipes #3 – Pink Grapefruit Juice
2 pink grapefruit

Peel the grapefruits and juice! Be sure to use pink and not yellow grapefruits.

Juicing Recipes #4 – Guava and Apricot
2 pink guava
3 Apricots

Use only the guava flesh and not the skins. Take the stone out of the apricot. Juice and enjoy!

Juicing Recipes #5 – Lycopene Vegetable Juice
4 large carrots
1 red bell pepper

Top and tail the carrots. Top and tail the red pepper and remove pith and seeds. Put them in your juicer.
