Crohn’s/IBS Calming Juice


Monday Soother:

  • 2 pears
  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 fennel bulb
  • 4 carrots
  • 1/2 lemon with skin
  • 1 inch ginger
  • a small bunch of mint

I created this recipe in honor of my grumbling stomach on a Monday morning.  It seems that Monday is the hardest on my system due to waking up extra early at 5:20 and rushing around to get to school on time.  I have no trouble on the weekend when I get to wake up slowly and the rest of the week is usually pretty good.  It is a true case of the Mondays’.

Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Pears:  Soothing, anti-inflammatory and a light sweetness to the recipe.
  2. Apple:  Soluble fiber for gentle detox.
  3. Fennel: IBS soother! Cuts down on gas and calms spasms.
  4. Carrot:  Digestive system soother for the gi lining.
  5. Lemon: Anti-inflammatory
  6. Ginger:  IBS soother! Anti-inflammatory
  7. Mint:  IBS soother! Anti-inflammatory, gas reducer.

The taste with this one is a smooth sweetness with the fennel coming through along with the heat of the ginger.  The Heather’s Tummy Tamers that I take here and there are made of fennel, ginger and mint and the drink version of this is pretty darn good.

  1. This is dangerous stuff you are putting out there to make money on advertising and promoted sales. Getting people’s hopes up that carrot juice is a cure, as you use that word, is reckless and misleading at best. I think I have come across these types of sites of yours, and you should be ashamed.

    Providing good information for people is one thing, but wholly misleading them into thinking its a cure for page views is just wrong.

    • If you look into my site enough – you will see that I have learned and changed what I think about the disease. At least I am not just sitting here just popping pills as my only option. I am at least trying things to help myself to achieve remission and heal. Shame on you for not being open minded and believing that there just might be natural ways to help the disease heal and or go into remission. I began with thinking I found a cure for it and realizing I was not correct, I changed my thinking along the pages on this blog. Have a great day
