This is one of the best juice books I've come across in my thirty years of juicing.

Power Juices Super Drinks is a wonderful book, full of useful information that is well- presented and easy to access. It is an inspiring treasure of information on healing foods and herbs, and their benefits for treating and preventing diseases.
The material is presented clearly, with lightness and humor, which Steve Meyerwitz is known for! A major part of the book presents drinks, which may be teas, smoothies, citrus juices or other kinds of vegetable or fruit juices, for specific conditions. There are chapters on power drinks for the physical body, for the mind, and for longevity. The longest chapter, called "Power drinks - Medicine Chest", details nutritional therapies and recipes for 115 different health disorders.
A tremendous resource on high power foods and herbs, is the chapter titled, "Nature's Finest Healing Foods and Herbs". It is this chapter which inspired me to start growing and eating broccoli sprouts, which contain fantastic amounts of valuable phytochemicals (plant derived substances). One type of phytochemicals is glucosinolates; Enzymes in the body convert these chemicals to isothiocyanates. One isothiocyanate, sulforaphane, is the strongest natural inducer of our body's own protective enzymes against carcinogens. These substances have been shown to reduce the incidence, rate of development, and the size of tumors. Broccoli sprouts contain 20 to 50 times more sulforaphane than the average adult broccoli plant! In three days you can raise a crop of broccoli sprouts containing as much sulforaphane as an acre of broccoli would yield in a year! This chapter is a complete pharmacopoeia of common foods and herbs, full of illuminating information.
Another very worthwhile chapter is titled, "Nutrient Sources".

My husband and I bought this book about 3 weeks ago and we love it.We just found out that my husband has Hepatitis C and he has also suffered from severe migraines all of his life.We were looking for a way to naturaly treat his headaches so as to not cause more damage to his liver and your book has given us so much valuable information and guidlines to go by.I love the way this book is so easy to read and to look information up.I like the fact that Steve is not trying to get you to buy a "special product" that he has made to heal you,he just tells you everything you need to know about all the friut,vegetables&herbs that are already out there.No matter what you are suffering from, this book will help you treat it naturally with what you have in your refrigerator.I tell everyone about this book (even the people at the juice bar where we now get our wheatgrass).I have sold this book, through word of mouth, to probably no less than 5 people in the last 2 weeks. I keep telling my husband I should go on tour for this book (LOL).It is easy to tell people about this book because it is something I truly believe in.Just to let you know,My husband and I are not health nuts,vegetarians or anything like that but because of this book we take our health alot more serious and are slowly trying to turn our eating lifestyle around for ourselves and our children.
Thank you for writing it.

The folksy advice and complicated concoctions in this book seem to be more fantasy than reality. They call for more ingredients than you'd find in any grocery store, and in order to make these juicy refreshments, you have to have a wide variety of juices on hand. Not to mention a dozen appliances for blending, chopping, squeezing and processing the ingredients they way the book describes.

I was hoping for something that said "juice 2 apples, a stalk of celery and a bannana." But this book says something like, "blend 1.5 oz. apple juice, 3/4 oz. of celery juice, and 3/4 oz of banana juice." It doesn't suggest how much of each fruit you need on hand to make the desired amount. It doesn't even focus on Juicing, which is why I bought it.

Looks cute on the bookshelf, and that's where it will stay. UN-USED.

As a Nutritional Consultant, I find this book one of the most valuable resources for creating good health available today! I recommend that every household in the world get a copy of this book and use the recipes in it on a daily basis. Great health for the individual will be the result!
The book is full of recommendations on the use of "food as medicine". "Power Juices Super Drinks" has over 100 common health issues listed. For each issue the author lists wonderful recipes, individual foods, and a wide array of nutrients and herbs that are helpful in addressing each of these various health challenges.
Please do yourself a huge favour, buy this book and use it every day !

After three years of steroid shots, epidurals, drugs, stress, and surgeries, I was feeling the need for a natural intervention of some sort. I went to the Berkeley library, which has a huge collection on natural healing, with many books on nutrition and herbs. I chose four that seemed to be good, and read them. I decided to buy a juicer, and got this book mainly to have some recipes to follow. It turned out to have all the information I found in all the other books, and MORE! Plus, it's much easier to read and follow. I just started this, so can't report on results, but this is a great resource, even for people whose health hasn't taken a pounding.
