This lovely lady, the Juice Lady Cherie Calbom to be precise, tells an inspirational story that I remind myself of any time I feel myself flagging in my healing process.
Like many of us, Cherie struggled with a chronic fatigue like illness that doctors were unable to diagnose. Cherie was lovely enough to take some time out of her bestseller writing, Dr Oz collaborating schedule, to have a chat with me about how she fought her way back from a debilitating mysterious illness, one juice at a time.
We chat about:
Her healing crisis, in which she expelled a tumour-like object from her body.
Whether diagnosis actually matters in the healing process.
Her view on the actual cause of most illness.
Juicing vs blending.
How long juices be stored before they lose nutrients or start spoiling.
Whether frozen fruits/vegetables lose their nutrients.
The optimal fruit to vegetable ratio.
How long to juice fast and whether you should check in with a doc before starting.
Favourite add ons for histamine intolerance/chronic inflammatory conditions.
Why a low histamine standard diet isn’t going to heal.
Why cheating on a high nutrient diet isn’t worth it.
The mind as a healing tool.
The role of trauma in illness.
Cherie’s pre-gallbladder flush.
