His first book was written in I have them all and learned so much, applied it, tested and proved it for myself.
For me, it has worked! I keep reviewing his books from till just yesterday I was sorely disappointed when I received this book in the mail last night. I was expecting a fun and informative recipe book filled with fresh fruits and vegetables to make my body happy. Instead, Dr. The book was published in a fact which I should have checked prior to ordering I suppose which makes the information nearly fifty years old.
Much has transpired in the world of nutrition and our understanding of how the body works in the last fifty years and so, in reading this book, one has to be careful not to be ignorant of current ideas. This book advocates drinking raw fruit and vegetable juices as is apparent from the title, but, not only does it encourage this practice as part of a healthy lifestyle - it also promotes it as a main source of nutrients, denouncing and diminishing the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables raw.
It does make small mention of how and why fiber is important in a balanced diet but it is clear that the author feels that the benefits of the juice weighs more heavily on the healthy functioning of our bodies than does the fiber found in whole foods.
The author is a staunch vegetarian and a raw food vegetarian at that. Of course, if that's how you choose to live, I have no problem with it, but what I don't appreciate is someone treating cooked food as if it had the plague. I get why he's against fried foods; there isn't much, if any, nutritional value in a french fry, but a raw potato is no fun at all! This was the paragraph that really turned me off: "Strict vegetarians who eschew cow's milk, flour, grain, and concentrated sugar products, are not afflicted with these [respiratory] troubles, particularly if they were brought up from childhood to shun and avoid these foods.
This is not by any manner or means fanatical. It is just plain common sense and perfectly natural, and proved beyond question or doubt from experience I just don't buy it. I don't have any respiratory problems, and never have, and I include milk, flour and grains as well as sugar but I have to partially agree with the good Dr. Also, earlier he suggest "exclud[ing] grains and starches 24 " which isn't healthy as our bodies need these elements to maintain a healthy metabolism and digestive flow.
Another big issue I have with this book is that it is very self-promotey. He mentions his other book several times, in big, bolded capital letters and highly recommends it to everyone. Put a list of your work at the beginning or end of your book and maybe mention it once or twice during the text but that's my limit. I don't want to hear about how awesome you think you are, I want to read about the subject - that's why I picked the book up in the first place.
I also found it disconcerting when he mixed in some very religious sentiments to his text and didn't differentiate this religious opinion from scientific fact - he even used a quote from the bible to help support his argument As I mentioned, I was quite disappointed with this book.
I must admit I didn't read all the words because I was so disenchanted but I certainly got the gist of what Dr. Walker was interested in - self promotion and righteousness!
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone; there are other more recent, more reliable and less judgemental books on this topic out there! Interesting Read. The premise of the book is that after years of eating "dead" food we develope diseases. All processed foods are devoid of live enzymes which our bodies need to function properly. Sugars, starches and pasteurized milk are the biggies.
Juicing RAW vegetables and fruits and eating an abudance of raw fruits and vegetables will cure and prevent disease. He goes through different juicing combos but the main one is spinach and carrot juice - it's good for almost everything. Jul 28, Lance Lefevre rated it it was amazing. The master and king of juicing lived to be over , read this durign my 18 day juice fast.
Plenty of good recipies and information. Jul 15, Ivica rated it it was amazing. One of the best books on juicing. Start here. Feb 23, Prakash marked it as to-read. Book to live loonger. Feb 09, Allison rated it it was amazing. Good basic information on juicing and the associated health benefits. Eating alot of raw foods means becoming a salad artist. In a normal healthy person there are less bacteria in urine than in tap water. It may sound squeamish but after eating a big salad your urine will taste just like a broth made from the veggies in the salad actually delicious body has to work very hard to extract all the vitamins and minerals from those big salads.
After eating an expensive organic salad your blood is full of vitamins and minerals and yet as your kidneys remove excess fluid from your blood these vitamins are removed from you blood before them have done their full good.
Keeping an inverted glass in a peg near the toilet is a cheap convenient way to put these vitamins and minerals back into your blood in a from that requires no work from your body to digest. So you experience no heaviness or drowsiness as you would after a large meal - just an in pouring of vibrant health back into your body.
This is a no muss or fuss from of juicing. It is practiced far more widely than you would think and the health benefits are well documented. This is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. You only want to drink in the hours when your blood stream hence your urine is pure of contaminants and full of vitamins and this will be in the hours after you've eaten a large raw food salad or just about any time when your blood is free of drugs ,salt or excess uric acid from too much wheat , asparagus, meat , yeast or legumes I have been doing this for 5 years and my parents and their friends have been doing it for over 30 years and they ate remarkably youthful and healthy and never have to go to the doctor or miss work.
Great information! It seemed that the ebook version is scanned, and the fonts were not so clear but the information is very good. Highly recommend! Aug 15, RbbieFrah rated it it was amazing. In general, the book brought me many knowledge that help me understand more about each part of my body. How they work and teamwork with others.
And also the harmness of glucozo, protein, sugar, milk, It let me have to read many times to understand. Sideline stories distracted me to absorb this enormous information. The most important information is in some first paragraphs of one part, t In general, the book brought me many knowledge that help me understand more about each part of my body. I think i have one of the original versions because they don't even have the edition listed here on goodreads!
