3.0 News – The Raw Secret

1.0 Welcome Notes--

Hi Russ,

I hope you are doing well. I've got a busy
month planned! I'm hosting a potluck and
am preparing to cater a special raw gourmet
dinner. It will be a fundraiser for the 2006
Raw and Living Foods Festival in Portland, Oregon.

(More details on the festival will be announced soon!)

Today my article addresses one of the most
important aspects of the living foods diet. I
enjoy drinking fresh juices on a daily basis
and it has created remarkable improvements
to my health!

"The Most Important Discipline for Achieving
Perfect Health”

By Michael Snyder
Copyright 2006 by

The absolute best way to transition to raw
foods is through fresh, raw juices. Some people
may have trouble digesting the fiber in plant
foods. If your previous diet was low in fiber,
then suddenly increasing the fiber could be a
big shock to your digestive system.

The whole point of juicing is to remove the
fiber. The nutrients are immediately absorbed
and assimilated into the body.

A common problem people may have is that
they don't have enough mineral salts in their
system, which are essential for digesting
plant fiber. Bernard Jensen found that the
mineral most of his patients were low in is
the sodium salts. We need both potassium salts
and sodium salts for proper digestion of raw
plant foods.

Potassium salts are easy to find in most
plants. The sodium salts are a little harder
to find, and many people are deficient in
them. Celery is high in sodium electrolyte
minerals, and this is why I recommend celery
as the foundation of juices.

Get started with a discipline of drinking
green juices. You could either make them
yourself, or purchase them at your local
juice bar.

My favorite green juice recipe is made daily
at Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida,
the worlds leading raw foods health retreat.

The Hippocrates green juice is made with one
quarter celery, one quarter cucumber, and one
half sunflower green sprouts.

This drink provides carbohydrates, electrolyte
minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll, sodium salts,
fats, and it contains more protein than most
Americans receive in two days. You could add
in a little carrot juice to sweeten it up, or
substitute other leafy greens for the sunflower

The next most important juice is wheatgrass.
I can't say enough good things about this
beverage! It is the food highest in chlorophyll
(70% chlorophyll), it contains essential amino
acids, essential fats, and it may contain up to
92 minerals. It is a powerful detoxifier, it
alkalinizes the body, it's a blood and liver
cleanser, and it's great for healthy skin and hair.

Wheatgrass is simple and inexpensive to grow.
It is available at your local juice bar, but
It's much cheaper to grow your own. The
juice may cost $1 an ounce in the store, and
it only costs about three cents an ounce when
you grow your own.

The arithmetic screams loudly:

'Grow your own!'

You only need between 2 to 4 ounces of
wheatgrass juice per day. I recommend chewing
the juice for two minutes to assist in digesting the
complex carbohydrates.

Chewing the juice allows the nutrients to be
absorbed under the tongue and helps strengthen
the teeth. You could also chew the grass, but
don't swallow because grass fiber is indigestible.

Here is an excellent article, "The Benefits
of Wheatgrass Juice" by Dr. Ann Wigmore->

Another juice I really love is watermelon
juice. The secret with the watermelon is to
juice the rind and seeds along with the fruit.
The rind is where you'll find most of the
minerals and sodium.

The watermelon is an excellent food for
cleaning out the kidneys. It is a diuretic and
disinfectant. This is the perfect thirst
quencher on a hot summer day!

Another juice I really love is the lemon
ginger blast. This recipe is similar to the
famous Master Cleanser lemonade drink
made popular by Stanley Burroughs.

Lou Corona, a holistic health educator, taught
me this recipe. He has been eating a 100% raw
and living foods diet for over 30 years.

To make this, you juice a couple apples, a
lemon, a half-inch to an inch of ginger root,
and throw in a pinch of cayenne pepper powder.
I use the hottest cayenne pepper I can find.

I enjoy the blast first thing in the morning,
and always drink it on an empty stomach.

This drink is an excellent super tonic providing
numerous health benefits. The lemon juice is
one of the best foods for restoring alkalinity
to the body. Our body's pH must be slightly
alkaline at 7.4, and lemon juice is one of the
most alkaline foods available.

Cayenne pepper and ginger are the best foods
for improving blood circulation, the digestive
system, and they really get the energy moving
through the body. They help remove any
blockages or mucous that are preventing
proper circulation. The apple sweetens up the
drink and provides valuable vitamins and minerals.

There are more valuable juices discussed in
my eBook, "The Health Evolution"->

Basically, you can and should juice most
produce in the market.

One food group that is often overlooked is the
root vegetable. The root vegetables make
excellent juices and contain many unique
vitamins and minerals. The root vegetables
include potatoes, yams, beets, carrots,
turnips, parsnips, burdock root, and celeriac
(a.k.a. celery root) among others.

(Don't forget to juice the beet greens!)

Some foods don't juice well and should be
avoided. For example, foods such as bananas,
dates, and strawberries don't contain much
juice. I don't recommend juicing rhubarb or
buckwheat green sprouts, they contain some
toxins that are concentrated in the juices.

One of the best books ever published on the
subject of juices is "Fresh Vegetable and
Fruit Juices" by Dr. Norman Walker. You must
read this book!

All of Dr. Walker's books are essential
reading for health seekers. Dr. Walker was a
raw foodist who lived to be either 114 or 118
years old in perfect health. He drank live
fruit and vegetable juices on a daily basis.

Fresh living juice will provide you with great
health benefits. They are without a doubt the
best tool available for maintaining and
restoring health.
