I was impressed with the content and the powerful message of a convincing cancer survival story in this article "(http://www.geocities.com/slq1916/carrots.html)." After reading this write-up about 2 weeks ago, I have started taking fresh carrot juice (~8 oz) every morning at ~6:00 AM and 2-3 times a day on the weekends. I was surprised to notice that this daily dosing regimen (fast drinking) of freshly squeezed carrot juice has improved my urine flow by ~50% in 15 days. I was suffering from BPH, the early stages of prostate pathologies".
I strongly believe that freshly squeezed carrot juice contains remarkable healing pharmacological ingredients- soluble fiber, enzymes, richest sources of vitamin A (carotene), Vitamin B complex and alpha-, beta-, and gamma-tocopherol, and commonly known as the vitamin E complex. Its mineral content is equally rich, and includes calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, and iron. The freshly squeezed carrot juice may possess significant anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, antioxidative, laxative, repairing, immune function promoting, anticancer, and overall healing properties. The fresh carrot juice seems to possess unique ability for internal cleansing and for restoring homeostasis in health and disease states. These activities need to be established in animal models of varieties of cancer.
The freshly squeezed carrot juice may act synergistically with other medications (curcumin, chemotherapy and radiation therapy etc.). I beg the Medical professionals all over the globe and ACS that they need to seriously consider adding "fresh carrot juice" as an adjunct therapy to patient's diet and therapy regimens and seek funds for conducting several well-controlled clinical trails to examine the magic of Mother Nature's healing miracles using freshly squeezed carrot juice alone and in combinations with other medications and nutrients (almonds and brazil nut and walnut etc).
One pound of carrots (Costing ~30-40 cents) normally yields ~8 OZ fresh juice. No peeling is needed. Just wash thoroughly and remove the dirt etc. It takes about one minute to extract juice and few minutes for cleaning the juicer (two -five minutes). AARP may sell Juiceman 2 at half price to its members.
One can add additional fruits (an apple, orange, fresh cranberries, parsley, coriander, multicolor fresh vegetables and fruits etc), cinnamon powder, ginger, curcumin roots, etc to the juicer for improving the taste and flavors and internal cleansing effects, if desired.
This is a community service announcement to my fellow citizens. The author has no financial gains from this article. I am now using Omega 9000 juicer ($219 on sale on internet).
The freshly squeezed carrot juice could be used for priming effects (prophylactic effects ) before cancer surgery and other surgeries, and during or after surgeries to facilitate the recovery processes. Prevention is better than cure!
