Part One is "The Basics", with excellent guidelines, including one page of "Juicing Tips" that I found useful.
Part Two, "The Disorders", is the bulk of the book, and addresses common ailments and diseases, describes the condition, gives general recommendations, dietary modifications, nutrients that help, beneficial juices and suggested recipes.
A wide range of disorders are discussed. Under "C" for instance, there is not only the obvious cancer and cholesterolemia (high cholesterol) listed, but also ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome, which is not usually thought of as being helped through nutrition ("The majority of carpal tunnel sufferers have been found to have low levels of vitamin B6", page 93), and also that bane of 40+ women, cellulite: "The good news is that cellulite can be reversed significantly" (page. 100), and the book tells you how.
Part Three is "The Diet Plans", and has suggestions for everyday meals, with basic healthy eating, "Immune Support Diet", and many different types of cleansing diets and advice.
Cherie "The Juicewoman" Calbom and Maureen Keane have a long list of credentials and "know their onions" in the field of nutrition, and if you believe that what you eat has a direct impact on you physical health and stress level, this is a good book to have in your library. Also recommended is "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by James and Phyllis Balch.
Additionally, the book gives wonderful general recommendations along with an explanation of that ailment. On top of that, "Dietary Modifications" are provided with practical, easy to understand advice as to what foods and beverages to avoid, along with "Nutrients that Help" combined with "Beneficial Juices". Then, to top it all off there are great "Suggested Juicing Recipes" that will target whatever ails you.
From anti-ageing to chronic fatigue syndrome, to underweight, this book is simple to follow and provides you with the knowledge of exactly what your system needs in order to maintain maximum health.
Highly recommended if you want to improve your health, and bring nutrient-rich vitamins and minerals into your body naturally.

So I began juicing. At first, it was primarily carrot juice. I drank about maybe 3-4 cups of fresh carrot juice a day and I noticed the benefits of it right away. I always tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle, anyway, but juicing really seemed to give me that something "extra" that I was looking for.
Then I got this book and I began follwing some of her recipes as well as inventing a few of my own. My favorite "concoction" is something I call the Zest Fest:
5 medium carrots
6 cherry tomatoes
2 stalks celery
1/2 red bell pepper
1 small piece of ginger
2 garlic cloves
Sliver of onion
Sliver of lemon
1/2 shot of white vinegar
1/2 shot worsteshire sauce
A few shakes of your favorite hotsauce
Salt & Pepper
Juice all the vegetables, add the condiments, mix well in a glass jar with a lid, drink and enjoy! This little potion of mine has warded off several types of the flu as well as other common ailments and gives me a sense of vibrancy and vitality all throughout the day. Of course, my skin is bright orange now and I can see through walls, but so what?
The benefits of fresh juicing are incredible and this book goes into great detail what those benefits are. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, get a juicer, get this book, raid the produce stand, and make your health and your well-being top priority.
