Juicing for Crohns, Nutrition and Energy

The first year of daily juicing was an exciting one.  I placed myself into remission without the aid of drugs or steroids with just fruits, vegetables, supplements and probiotics.  I gave my trillions of cells exactly the type of nutrition that they needed and really felt the boost in energy that lasted all day long.

Then while not changing anything in my routine, I ended up with a bowel obstruction back in October 27.  I was baffled as to how this could have happened when everything was going so well. It wasn’t until a few months later on that I made the connection between my dog getting sick and passing away to this hospitalization.  He passed away just 2-3 weeks prior to the obstruction.  The doctor said that I had had a stress induced flare up.  My wife also reminded me that this happened with both of my children coming along.

I now take a small dose SSRI to reduce any stress that I don’t even know is there.  With being a teacher of 8 year old children, struggling with money, my dog passing and having kids of my own, I actually have a lot of stress going on.

With all of that said, I have not stopped a single day of juicing.  I believe that it can do amazing things for your gut environment and will heal your damaged gi lining. It gives me energy and boosts my immunity greatly!  It provides the ultimate nutrition when food is limited!!

My newest venture is doing some juice classes at people’s homes to show them how to combine ingredients and create great tasting recipes.  If you are in the Charlotte area, drop me a message at the e-mail above if you are interested.  

Something new that I have added into my supplement routine are Turmeric pills.  I take one after dinner and it is said to be stronger than the steroid that the doctor prescribes for inflammatory response.
