In many nature cure centres spinach juice is added to carrot juice. Addition of 50 grams of spinach juice to 250 grams of carrot juice makes a tasty cocktail. A little lemon juice also can be added to it, but no salt should be put in the mixture. This drink is very effective for the treatment of constipation. Spinach juice cleanses the bowels. The effect cannot be expected soon after taking spinach juice with the carrot juice. But within a period of about two months, the bowels start emptying regularly. Spinach juice also helps in strengthening the teeth and gums. Many urban dwellers have decayed teeth due to which they suffer from foul smelling breath. They can get rid of the foul breath by taking spinach juice alone or mixed with carrot juice. Spinach can be consumed in the form of salad. This leafy vegetable does not require cooking.
Many people wrongly believe that high levels of oxalic acid present in spinach can cause renal stones. The real cause of the stone formation is the metabolic wastes of food such as meat, fish, eggs, sugars and white bread. These substances undergo many processes in the body before the end products for their metabolism are excreted by the kidneys. These multiple processes and changes lead to the formation of stones. This is not the case with spinach and tomatoes. These foods are usually blamed for the formation of renal stones, due to their oxalic acid content. Carrot juice is perhaps one of the finest blood purifiers available to man. Excess consumption of carrot juice may cause a yellowing of the skin, particularly on palms of the hands and the soles of feet. This pigmentation has no connection with jaundice, but is due to carotene from which vitamin A is formed within the body. This yellowing is a harmless condition, which soon disappears when carrot juice is given up or its intake restricted in quantity.
Mrs. Mary C. Hogle has described the rejuvenating effects of carrot juice in her book. “Foods That Alkalinize and Heal.” The description is based on self experience. Mrs. Hogle was very ill in the year 1900. Her digestive system was not functioning properly. Her intestines had lost their tone. Their inner lining had become very loose and eroded. She used to bleed from the ulcers very often. As the disease progressed, she lost all hope of life.
Meanwhile, she came across a booklet “The Health Question Box” written by Dr. John Harvey. The author had described in it the medicinal effects of carrot juice. Mrs. Hogle took carrot juice. Within a short period, she got rid of the abdominal colic and the intestinal bleeding. Her intestinal mucous membrane was completely healed and regenerated. She regained her health within a few months.
In many nature cure centers carrot juice is compulsorily given to every patient. We have experienced its beneficial effects for many years. Farmers from many European countries like France and Germany use carrot juice for curing gastric and digestive problems. Carrot juice is very effective in curing the diseases caused by increased acidity in the tissue fluids. It detoxifies the blood and cures many ailments caused by impure blood. It can be used successfully in contagious diseases, anaemia, diabetes, piles and debility. It is anti-infective and protects eyes, throat, sinuses, tonsils and entire respiratory tract. It also decreases hyperacidity and removes foul breath caused by it. Bleeding gums and ulcers in mouth (stomatitis) are also cured by carrot juice.

Dr. H.E. Kirschner quotes many instances of carrot juice diet curing cancer in his book “Live Food Juices.” He related therein a story of leukaemia arrested with raw carrot juice. The eldest daughter of the concerned family died soon after birth due to leukaemia (blood cancer). The girl was born in 1951. At birth she was apparently very healthy and was referred to as a “prize baby”. But she gradually became pale. The parents became alarmed and consulted their physicians. Her blood count revealed that the baby girl was suffering from leukaemia. She was shifted to a hospital. She was given twenty five blood transfusions within five and a half days, but all the efforts to save her life were fruitless and the little girl died at the age of three months.
Second child, a boy was born in 1953. On examination of his blood revealed the terrifying fact that this boy also was born with leukaemia! The baby’s doctor became acquainted with the remarkable experience of Mrs. Catherine Ferraro, who had recovered from splenic leukaemia by taking large quantities of carrot juice daily. He determined to save the child’s life by the same means. He gave him carrot juice for the first three months. After three months, however, fruits and vegetables were added to his diet. At the end of one year the blood count was normal. There was no evidence of leukaemia. The carrot juice had evidently performed a miracle in restoring the child’s diseased blood stream to a normal healthy condition. The boy still continues to take his daily ration of carrot juice.
The third child, a baby girl, was born in 1954. Blood tests made at the time of birth showed no evidence of leukaemia. This was due to the fact that the mother drank carrot juice regularly throughout her pregnancy. The parents did not want to take any chance and the third child was also given an absolute carrot juice diet for three months after birth. She still continues to take two glasses of carrot juice per day. Both of them have good health and are full of vitality and vigour. Though carrot juice is a precious food, restoring health and giving vitality, it cannot be the only remedy for all the types of cancers at all stages. The treatment and the diet should vary according to the needs of individual patients. Carrot juice cannot be said to be useful in each and every disease. It should be avoided in diseases like cold, influenza, pneumonia and other febrile conditions. The body tries to get rid of accumulated toxins in it during the period of illness. Carrot juice or any other diet hinders this process of internal cleansing. But the carrot juice can be very effectively used in ailments like chronic tonsillitis, intestinal colic, colitis, appendicitis, tuberculosis, malnutrition, anaemia, renal stones, hyperacidity, peptic ulcer, dyspepsia and impurity of blood.
A research scholar from an American institute centre for science for public interest states that the beta-carotene present in carrot and some other vegetables and fruits possesses the property of preventing and even curing cancer. This is possible only by using these vegetables and fruits in raw state. The natural chemical beta-carotene gets converted into vitamin A in the body. One who consumes carrot juice early in the morning on an empty stomach does not need to take any synthetic vitamin A. It has been found that the Nowergians hardly use any vegetables due to which the percentage of lung cancer is very high among them.
