Cool as a cucumber, LITERALLY!

Any symptom in the body that has “heat” in it think cucumbers.

  • Rashes
  • Fevers-great for kids
  • Heartburn
  • Inflammation- anything from a physical injury to something like arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • A hard workout which heats up the body
  • Hot stagnant liver-eating lots of meat, fat, dairy, nuts (eating peanut butter by the spoonful?) alcohol, coffee, chocolate…
  • Dry or aging skin-so hot on the inside of body, that it dries out the outside
  • Dry brittle hair and nails
  • Adrenal stress-your the opposite of cool and calm
  • Swelling-your body is holding on to water to try and dilute the heat
  • Bloating-your liver is hot

They all need soothing, calming cucumbers. Juicing cucumbers is the ultimate hydrating tonic; it detoxifies, alkalizes and regenerates the whole body.

Drinking cucumbers juice is like flushing out the body with the most healing water on the planet.


You are made up of trillions of cells, and every cell needs fuel to perform optimally, and that exact fuel they require is glucose. Adding apples gives you an easy to absorb boost of fuel.

The sugar that comes from fruit doesn’t require much work to be absorbed by the cells; this means it’s immediate energy for the body.

If you’ve been feeling like you have brain fog or for children who need help focusing, this is a great addition.

Apples will also add a sweetness to your juices, which is great for kids and the “big kids,” a.k.a YOU…the ones that can’t handle the taste :).


Don’t throw these guys out!

Besides adding a lovely tart taste, limes hydrate and cleanse the liver. Our liver is our filter system and how we look is a reflection of our liver’s health.

Clean liver = weight loss + clearer younger firmer skin = lustrous hair + naturally glossy nails

Fed up of celery juice? Do this instead
  • Limes sharp taste helps to reduce sugar cravings
  • Limes are high in electrolytes; great for anyone who works out regularly
  • Organic sodium found in limes improves your stomach’s HCL levels, which aids acid reflux and improves digestion

Remember, it’s not what you eat but what you can absorb

  • Lime will purge toxic substances, such as synthetic chemicals found in cosmetics and cleaning products
  • Limes alkalinity contributes in preventing growths of any harmful pathogen


Some people find that eating leafy greens (spinach, kale, arugula, lettuces, dandelion greens etc.) causes bloating and uneasiness.

That is because they scrub the digestive tract of unproductive pathogens and old rotting matter.
They may touch sensitive nerves in the gut lining and cause you discomfort as they clean.
The key is not to stop consuming these mega healing broom foods, as they will regenerate your whole body over time.

Juicing them is an excellent way to ease them into your diet with less irritation. It’s an excellent solution for anyone with digestive inflammatory conditions such as IBS, Crohn’s, colitis, diverticulitis, etc.
