When on a raw juice therapy, the prescribed juice should be drunk every three hours. One can thus take juices five to six times a day. A glass of water mixed with lemon juice and 20 to 30 grams of honey may be taken first thing in the morning on arising. Thereafter, the prescribed juice may be taken at three-hourly intervals. The quantity of juice on each occasion may be 250 ml on the first day. This quantity may be increased by 50 ml each succeeding day till one takes 600 ml on each occasion. The juice diet can be continued for 30 to 40 days without any ill-effects. The patient should take adequate rest during the raw juice therapy.
Raw juices act as a cleansing agent and start eliminating toxins and morbid matter from the system immediately. This often results in symptoms such as pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, loss of weight, headache, fever, weakness, sleeplessness and bad breath. These reactions, which are part of the cleansing process, should not be suppressed by the use of drugs. They will cease when the body is able to expel all toxins.
After the raw juice therapy, the return to normal balanced diet should be gradual, and in stages. In the beginning, two juice meals may be replaced by milk and fruits. Then gradually juice meals may be substituted by a balanced-diet.

The Theory of Raw Juice Therapy

Dennis Hardy ND

Raw juice therapy is a natural, drugless therapy proven by years of scientific research. We know that fresh fruits and vegetables contain vitamins, minerals, and enzymes essential to good health, to the prolongation of life, and to the cure of disease. We also know that a certain amount of these vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are destroyed in the cooking of foods, so we can conclude that they are best consumed raw. And it has been scientifically proven that raw juices supply concentrated and easily assailable amounts of vitamins and minerals.

In nature’s scheme of things there are pure liquids locked in the cells of plants that have definite therapeutic value. Just as we know that cretin herbs have specific curative power, so do these plant juices which come from fresh fruits and vegetables. These juices, subtle in there action, yet more potent then any medicine, and without the toxic effect of drugs, can eliminate or prevent many of the chronic and degenerative diseases with which human beings are afflicted.
Fresh fruit juices are the cleansers of the human body. Vegetables juices are the regenerators and builders of the body. Grown in healthy soil, they contain all the stances need for nourishing the human organism, provided the juices are used fresh, raw and without preservatives. The substances may all be grouped into seven simple kinds of materials. These are 1. Carbohydrates, 2. Proteins, 3. Fats, 4. Minerals, 5. Vitamins, 6. Bio-Flavonoids, and 7. Cellulose.

The benefits of Juice Fasting

1. Juice supplies large quantities of enzymes for use by the body. Enzymes are the catalyst that start all biologic functions in the body, as well as aid in digestion, and repair of tissue.

2. When you fast, your body will clean itself by using old cells, damaged and abscess-eased tissues, and other morbid accumulations (tumors, abscesses and fat deposits, and toxins). It burns them as fuel (its like burning trash).

3. Juice has all the nutrients needed for cell growth, function and repair.

4. Juice enters the blood and goes to work in as few as 15 minutes after ingesting.

5. The burden of heavy meal digestion is temporally suspended, so the body can use this energy to clean and repair itself.
So the combination of fasting while drinking enzyme rich juice speeds up the process of ridding the body of dis-eased cells and toxins and the building of new healthy cells. The body is also able to quickly eliminate accumulated metabolic waste from all the organs and tissues.

How to do a Juice Fast

1. The Juice Fast should last three days.

2. Use equal amounts of fruit juice and vegetable juice for the entire fast.

3. No solid food is to be taken during the entire fast.

4. Drink as much Juice as you want during the fast. It is best to drink it 8oz at a time.

5. Drink 1oz of juice per pound of body weight, per day. (example: a 150-pound person should have 150oz of juice per day)

6. Drink at least one quart of water each day during the fast.

7. If you feel hungry during the juice fast, you are not drinking enough juice.

8. It is a good idea to juice fast three days each month.

9. The Fruit juice should consist of equal parts of apple and grape juice.

10. The Vegetable juice should consist of equal parts of carrot and spinach, and beet- greens juice.

11. A good rule of thumb is: Fruit juices Cleanse and Vegetable juices build.

12. Every hour, drink 8-10 oz of juice, alternating vegetable juice with fruit juice.
Some of the top juices to use.


Asparagus contains an alkaloid known as Asparagine in a relatively large amount. (Alkaloids are found in living plants. They contain the active life principle of the plant, without which it cannot grow or stay alive). It is composed of the elements carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen.
When asparagus is cooked or canned, the value of this alkaloid is lost, as the hydrogen and oxygen are dissipated and the natural salts formed by the combination of this alkaloid with the other elements are virtually lost or their value is destroyed.

In the form of juice, asparagus has been very effectively used as a diuretic, particularly when combined with some carrot juice, as it may prove to be uncomfortably strong in its reaction on the kidneys when taken alone.
It is a beneficial juice in the case of kidney dysfunctions and in the regulation of general glandular troubles. Diabetes and anemia are helped by the use of it in conjunction with the juices more specifically outlined for these conditions.
As this juice helps the breaking up of oxalic acid crystals in the kidneys and throughout the muscular system, it is good for rheumatism, neuritis, etc. Rheumatism results from the end product of the digestion of meat and meat products, which generate excessive amounts of urea.
As the human system cannot completely digest and assimilate so-called "complete proteins' , such as meats and meat products, the ingestion of too much of these causes the greater part of the uric acid generated thereby to be absorbed into the muscles.

The continuous use of meat protein taxes the workings of the kidneys and of other eliminative organs, straining them to the point where a progressively smaller amount of uric acid is eliminated and a correspondingly greater amount is absorbed by the muscles. The result is painfully known as rheumatism.
This condition is also one of the underlying causes for prostrate gland trouble, in which case this juice combina¬tion, in addition to the carrot, beet, and cucumber juice has been helpful.


This is one of the most valuable juices for helping to build up the red corpuscles of the blood and tone up the blood generally. Women, particularly, have been benefited by drinking at least one pint of a combination of carrot and beet juice daily. The proportion in this combination may vary from 3 to 8 ounces of beet juice, using roots and tops, in one pint of the combined juices, carrot and beet.
Taken alone, beet juice, in greater quantities than a wineglass at at time, may cause a cleansing reaction which may make one a little dizzy or nauseated. This may be the result of its cleansing effect on the liver and may, therefore, be uncomfortable. It has been found from experience that it is best to take less beet juice and more carrot juice in the beginning until one can tolerate its beneficial cleansing effect then to increase the proportion of beet juice grad¬ually. One 6 or 8 ounce glassful twice daily is usually con¬sidered sufficient.

For menstrual disturbances beet juice has been very helpful, particularly when, during such periods, it has been used in small quantities, not more than a wineglass at a time (say, 2 or 3 ounces) two or three times a day. During menopause this procedure has been found much more permanently helpful than the degenerative effects of drugs or synthetic hormones. After all, any drug or inorganic synthetic chemical product cannot possibly have any more than a temporary effect in giving relief; the one who takes such drugs or synthetic hormones is the one who may suffer eventually when the body and Nature combine in attempts to eliminate such inorganic material from the system. Any drug that can be guaranteed to relieve or cure permanently any sick condition of the body can also be guaranteed to start some other and probably more serious condition some time later. It is the one who takes the drug that suffers in the long run, not those who advertise or administer it.

After all is said and done, Nature has furnished us with natural means through which we may seek health, energy, vigor, and vitality. She has also furnished us, in greater or lesser degrees, with intelligence with which to pursue our search for knowledge. If we use our intelligence, Nature smiles on us. If we do not use it, she stands by with infinite patience and compassion, wondering why her handiwork should turn out to be so stupid.

While the actual content of iron in red beets is not high, it is of a quality that furnishes excellent food for the red corpuscles of the blood. The greatest virtue of the chemical elements in the beet is the fact that more than 50% is sodium, while the calcium content is only about 5%. This is a valuable proportion for maintaining the solubility of calcium, particularly when, as a result of eating cooked foods, inorganic calcium has been permitted to accumulate in the system and has formed deposits within the blood vessels, resulting in a toughening of the walls, as in the case of varicose veins and hardening of the arteries, or a thickening of the blood, resulting in high blood pressure and other forms of heart trouble.

The 20% potassium content furnishes the genera nourishment for all the physiological functions of the body, while the 8% content of chlorine furnishes a splendid organic cleanser of the liver, kidneys, and gall bladder, also stimulating the activity of the lymph throughout the entire body.

The combination of carrot and beet juice furnishes a good percentage of phosphorous and sulphur on the one hand, and potassium and other alkaline elements on the other hand, which, together with the high content of Vitamin A, completes what is probably the best natural builder of the blood cells and particularly the red blood corpuscles.


The juice of Brussels Sprouts combined with that of carrot, string bean, and lettuce furnishes a combinaton of elements which helps to strengthen and regenerate the insulin generating properties of the pancreatic functions of our digestive system. For this reason, it has been found of inestimable benefit in cases of diabetes.
This benefit, however, has been derived when all concentrated starches and sugars were avoided altogether and when colonic irrigations and high enemas were used regularly to cleanse waste matter from the system.


Duodenal ulcers have responded almost miraculously to the drinking of cabbage juice. The only drawback is the frequent generation of excessive gas. In any case, plain carrot juice has been used with equal success and most people find it more palatable.

Cabbage juice has wonderful cleansing and reducing Properties. Sometimes it has a tendency to cause distress because of gas forming in the intestines after drinking it. Such gas is the result of waste putrefactive matter present in the intestines being broken up by the cabbage juice, which causes a chemical reaction to set in and may form gas. This is a natural condition sulfuretted hydrogen, a foul smelling gas, being the outcome of the cleansing elements in the juice acting on and dissolving the waste matter. Enemas and colonic irrigations help to remove both this excessive gas and the waste matter causing it.

The most valuable properties in cabbage are the high sulphur and chlorine content and the relatively large percentage of iodine. The combination of the sulphur and chlorine causes a cleansing of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestinal tract, but this only applies when cabbage juice is taken in its raw state without the addition of salt.

When excessive gas or other distress is experienced after drinking raw cabbage juice, either straight or in combination with other raw vegetable juices, it may be an indication of an abnormal toxic condition within the intestinal tract. In such case it has been found advisable, before much of the juice is used, to cleanse the intestines thoroughly by drinking carrot, or carrot and spinach juice daily for two or three weeks and taking enemas daily. It was found that once the intestines were able to assimilate cabbage juice, it was invaluable as a cleanser, particularly in the case of excessive adipose weight.

When raw cabbage juice is added to raw carrot juice, it forms an excellent source of Vitamin C as a cleansing medium, aiding particularly where infection of the gums is present resulting in pyorrhea. When boiled or dehydrated with excessive heat, however, the effectiveness of the enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and salts is destroyed. One hundred and twenty pounds of cooked or canned cabbage could not furnish the same vital organic food value that is assimilated from drinking one half pint of straight raw cabbage juice when properly prepared.

Cabbage juice has been used very effectively to help the relief of ulcers and constipation. As constipation is usually the primary cause of skin eruptions, these have also been cleared up with the judicious use of this juice.

The addition of salt to cabbage or its juice not only destroys its value, but is also harmful.


Depending on the condition of the individual, raw carrot juice may be taken indefinitely in any reasonable quantities from one to six or eight pints a day. It has the effect of helping to normalize the entire system. It is the richest source of Vitamin A which the body can quickly assimilate and contains also an ample supply of Vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K. It helps to promote the appetite and is an aid to digestion.

It is a valuable aid in the improvement and maintenance of the bone structure of the teeth.

Nursing mothers should drink plenty of raw carrot juice, properly prepared, to enhance the quality of their milk, as a breast milk diet may under certain circumstances, not provide sufficient vital foods. During the last months of pregnancy, raw carrot juice, taken in sufficient quantities, tends to reduce the possibilities of puerperal sepsis at childbirth. One pint of carrot juice, daily, has more constructive body value than 25 pounds of calcium tablets.

Raw carrot juice is a natural solvent for ulcerous and cancerous conditions. It is a resistant to infections, doing most efficient work in conjunction with the adrenal glands. it helps prevent infections of the eyes and throat as well as the tonsils and sinuses and the respiratory organs gener¬ally. It also protects the nervous system and is unequalled for increasing vigor and vitality.

Intestinal and liver diseases are sometimes due to a lack of certain of the elements contained in properly prepared raw carrot juice. When this is the case, then a noticeable cleaning up of the liver may take place, and the material which was clogging it may be found to dissolve. Frequently this is released so copiously that the intestinal and urinary channels are inadequate to care for this overflow, and in a perfectly natural manner it is passed into the lymph for elimination from the body by means of the pores of the skin. This material has a distincly orange or yellow pigment and while it is being so eliminated from the body will sometimes discolor the skin. Whenever such a discoloration takes place after drinking carrot or other juices, it is an indication that the liver is getting a well¬needed cleansing.
It is NOT the carrot juice itself nor the carotene that comes through the skin, as this discoloration will take place even if the juice is filtered to the point of clearing it of all color pigment. It is just as practical an impossibility for the carrot pigment itself to come through the skin as it would be for the red pigment of the beet to turn the body red or the chlorophyll of the green vegetables to paint the skin green from within.

In any case, is it not better to have a healthy satin like skin, even though it may be slightly on the carrot shade, than to have the pasty complexion which, together with its pimples and other blemishes, publicizes the unhealthy condition of the body?

Instead of becoming distressed over the appearance of skin discoloration, which widl in any case eventually disappear, we should be gratified that the disintegration of the liver has been stopped or prevented by the use of these juices.

This discoloration, however, can be somewhat retarded by slowing up the process of cleansing by changing or adding other juices to the particular one that causes such a rapid cleansing activity.

The lack of sufficient rest, sleep and overwork may also result in a certain amount of skin discoloration.

The endocrine glands, especially the adrenals and the gonads, require food elements found in raw carrot juice. Sterility is sometimes overcome by its use. The cause of sterility has been traced to the continuous use of foods in which atoms and enzymes were destroyed by cooking or pasteurizing.

Dry skin, dermatitis, and other skin blemishes are due to a deficiency in the body of some of these food elements contained in carrot juice. This is also a factor in eye trouble, as in ophthalmia, conjunctivitis, etc.

If properly extracted from fresh, clean, good quality raw carrots, carrot juice is very rich in the vital organic alkaline elements sodium and potassium. It also contains a good supply of calcium, magnesium, and iron while the vital organic elements phosphorus, sulphur, silicon, and chlorine balance perfectly with the former in their action and reaction on the human system.

As an aid to dissolve ulcers and cancer, raw carrot juice has proved itself the miracle of the age. Carrot juice is composed of a combination of elements which nourish the entire system, helping to normalize its weight as well as its chemical balance.

It nourishes the optic system particularly.

No less effective is the fresh raw juice of the lowly carrot in helping the treatment of ulcers and cancers. Tissues emaciated by those insidious ravages of cell starvation classified as ulcers and cancers have been nourished back to a healthier condition by the copious use of carrot juice as the principle item of nourishment, supplementing a carefully selected and prepared raw diet.


The greatest value of raw celery lies in the fact that it contains an exceptionally high percentage of vital organic sodium. It is one of the chemical properties of sodium to maintain calcium in solution. This is particularly the case in the human system.

The only sodium that is of any value in this respect, however, is the vital ORGANIC sodium which is derived from fresh vegetables and some fruits.

The combination of carrot and celery juices furnishes a balance of these organic minerals in excellent combination to combat tendencies toward these diseases and help to restore the body to normalcy where these afflictions have started or taken root.

Celery juice is used in the treatment of arthritis and acid reflux which are both caused by a lack of organic sodium.


Cucumber is probably the best natural diuretic known, secreting and promoting the flow of urine. It has, however, many other valuable properties, for example, as the promo¬tion of hair growth, due to its high silicon and sulphur con¬tent, particularly when mixed with carrot, lettuce, and spinach juice. It contains more than 40% potassium, 10% sodium, 71/2% calcium, 20% phosphorus, and 7% chlorine.

The addition of cucumber juice to carrot juice has a very beneficial effect on rheumatic ailments which result from an excessive retention of uric acid in the system. The addition of some beet juice to this combination speeds up the general process.

The high potassium content of the cucumber makes this juice very valuable in helping conditions of high and low blood pressure. It is equally helpful in afflictions of the teeth and gums, such as in pyorrhea.

Our nails and our hair need particularly the combination of elements which fresh vital cucumber juice furnishes, helping to prevent the splitting of the nails and falling out of the hair.

Skin eruptions of many kinds have been helped by drinking cucumber juice to which the juices of carrot and lettuce have been added. The addition of a little alfalfa juice in some cases has helped to speed up their efficiency.

as well as the root, and combined with carrot and turnip leaves juice, will assist in remedying spinal and other bone ailments, as well as give strength and firmness to the teeth, thus helping to prevent pyorrhea and decay.


There are many vegetables rich in potassium, the outstanding of which are carrot, celery, parsley, and spinach. To obtain the full value of this potassium element, it should be taken as a drink in its raw, undiluted state so that the body may absorb and assimilate it completely in its natural form.

The organic minerals and salts in this combination of raw potassium "broth" embrace practically the entire range of those required by the body. Its effect in reducing excessive acidity in the stomach has been truly remarkable. There is probably no food more complete in every respect than this for the human organism.

When the sick are unable to assimilate other food, it has been found that raw potassium broth has usually furnished the nourishment to bring the patient back to normal. In the case of convalescents, raw potassium broth is invaluable, and it is astonishing that all hospitals and sanitoria have not adopted this food as a regular part of their daily diet.

Some people do not find Potassium as palatable as the straight carrot juice or some of the other juice combinations. We must bear in mind, however, that when the body is starved for the live atoms of food so essential for the regeneration of the cells and tissues of the body, the time has passed when the matter of taste has any bearing whatever on the choice of the juices we need.

As we have previously stated, no drug in the entire Pharmacoepia will supply the body with the live organic food atoms, vitamins, and hormones essential for the regeneration of the wear and tear that results in sickness and disease. Such food is most quickly obtained by the body when we drink fresh raw vegtable juices.
As the atoms composing the cells and tissues of our anatomy are mineral and chemical elements, and the glands, organs, and in fact, every part of the system represent combinations of such atoms in certain definite patterns, so we are able to determine that certain combinations of chemical and mineral live elements in our food, and particularly in our juices, can nourish corresponding parts of our body.


Spinach is the most vital food for the entire digestive tract, both the alimentary section of the body (the stomach " duodenum, and small intestines) and for the large intestine or colon, and it has been so recognized from time immemorial.
In raw spinach, Nature has furnished man with the finest organic material for the cleansing, reconstruction, and regeneration of the intestinal tract. Raw spinach juice properly prepared, taken at the rate of about one pint day, has often corrected the most aggravated case of constipation within a few days or weeks.
On the other hand, raw spinach juice effectively cleanses and helps to heal not only the lower bowels but the entire intestinal tract.

The spinach works by natural means to repair the most essential damage first; it is not always apparent to the individual where in his body the work of regeneration is progressing. Results may not be noticeable sometimes for as long as six weeks or two months after daily consumption of this juice.

Another valuable feature of raw spinach juice is its effect on the teeth and gums in helping to prevent pyorrhea. This disease is a mild form of scurvy and results from a deficiency in the body of the elements found particularly in the combination of carrot and spinach juices. Bleeding gums and fibroid degeneration of the pulp of the teeth has become a common defect due to the habitual use of devital¬ized cereals, refined sugar, and other deficiency foods. It is due to a Vitamin C deficiency. A permanent aid for this affliction has been found in the use of natural raw foods and, more particularly, by drinking an ample quantity of carrot and spinach juice.

Other derangements of the body such as duodenal and other ulcers, pernicious anemia, convulsions, degeneration of various nerves, deficiency in adrenal secretions and those of the thyroid, neuritis, arthritis, abscesses and boils, pains in the region of the gonads, swelling of limbs, tendency to hemorrhage, loss of vigor, rheumatic and other pains, impaired functions of the heart, low and high blood pressure, eye troubles, and headaches, including those of a migraine character, are due primarily to the cumulative volume of waste matter in the lower intestine. Also, to the deficiency of the elements contained in raw carrot and spinach. The quickest and most effective way in which the body can obtain and assimilate these elements is by drinking daily at least one pint of the fresh raw vegetable juices.


This is probably one of the most widely used juices out of cans. Fresh raw tomato juice is most beneficial and has an alkaline reaction if digested when no starches or sugars are present in concentrated form; but if these are present and eaten or drunk during the same meal, then the reaction is definitely acid.

Tomatoes have a fairly high citric and malic acid content, and some oxalic acid. These acids are all needed and beneficial in the processes of metabolism, provided that they are vital organic. When tomatoes are cooked or canned, these acids become inorganic and, as such they are' detrimental to the system, although their injurious effect is insidious and may not manifest immediately. Some instances of kidney and bladder stones are the result of taking cooked or canned tomato or its juice, particularly with starches and sugars.

Fresh raw tomato juice is rich in sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
There are innumerable varieties of tomatoes, all of which, if used fresh and raw, make excellent and beneficial juices.


This juice is of particular benefit to diabetics. It has been found that string beans and Brussels sprouts when made into juice, contain elements which furnish the ingredients for the natural insulin for the pancreatic functions of the digestive organism.


No vegetable contains as high a percentage of calcium as the juice of turnip leaves, the calcium being more than one half of all the other minerals and salts combined.

It is therefore a most excellent food for growing children and for anyone having softening of the bones in any shape or form, including the teeth. By combining turnip leaves juice with carrot and dandelion juice, we obtain one of the most effective means of helping the hardening of the teeth as well as the entire bone structure of the body. The very high magnesium content of the dandelion together with calcium in the turnip leaves and the elements in the carrot combine to give the bone structure firmness and strength The potassium content is also very high in turnip leaves which results in this being a strong alkalinizer, particularly when combined with celery and carrot juices. It is thereforc excellent to reduce hyperacidity. Turnip leaves also contain much sodium and iron.


This juice is exceedingly rich in sulphur, which represents more than one third of all the other mineral elements and salts combined in the watercress. Nearly 45% of,the elements in watercress are acid forming, including sulphur, phosphorus, and chlorine. As it is a very powerful intestinal cleanser, it should never be taken alone, but should always be used with other juices, mixing it, for example, with carrot or celery.

Of the alkaline elements, potassium predominates, being slightly more than 20%; calcium is about 18%; sodium, 8%; magnesium, 5%; and iron about one fourth of one per cent.

A combination of carrot and spinach juice with some lettuce, turnip leaves, and watercress juice, contains the components essential for the normal regeneration of the blood and particularly for increasing oxygen transmission in the blood stream. For anemia, low blood pressure, and underweight, this forms an excellent food combination.

A combination of carrot, spinach, turnip leaves and watercress juice has the porperty of helping to dissolve the coagulated blood fibrin in hemorrhoids or piles, and many kinds of tumors. Two pints of this combination taken daily. Watercress Juice is a valuable adjunct to carrot, parsley and potato juices, as a combination to help emphysema victims. The predominance of phosphorus and chlorine has thereby proved to be beneficial.
