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".Read more ›
Thank you for writing it.
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.
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 !
