Berenice never expected that she could still be regaining her health after having all the various medical conditions and weight gain she had experienced in the past years. She became frustrated and discouraged of her own life, until such time she saw the movies ‘The Gerson Miracle’ and ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead‘ – she was enlightened to start and change into the person that she is now. Here is her truly inspiring story.
WHEN DID YOU START AND WHAT’S YOUR REGIMEN?
After I tried the smoothies, I incorporated juicing, since the juicing is readily to be absorbed at a cellular level. I’m drinking one juice and one smoothie a day for about 2 weeks. I can’t drink more than that because now my stomach is the size of an egg. However, I give priority to my juice and smoothie over other foods.
When I watched the movie and started getting more information about drinking juices with and incomparable nutritional value everything made sense to me. Nothing will give me the same nutrients as vegetables and fruits. Natural food meant to be for humans, instead of the refined, manufactured “food like” poison out of boxes.
WHEN DID YOU BEGIN JUICING?
HOW MUCH WEIGHT HAVE YOU LOST SINCE THE BEGINNING OF YOUR JUICING JOURNEY?
About 15 pounds.
HAS YOUR LIFE OUTLOOK CHANGED?
My whole concept about diet, nutrition, aging, sickness has changed dramatically. Since medicine cannot cure or prevent diseases, It’s up to me to nourish my body to get well and prevent disease. I am very motivated to continue in my journey to get my body and mind well.
WHAT OTHER BENEFITS HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED?
2 months ago, right before starting with smoothies and juices, my husband told me “You look like a 80 year old sick woman. I’m really concerned about your health. It seems like life is being sucked out of you little by little”. That is exactly how I felt. Sick and nearly dead like in the movie.
After nearly 2 months of drinking my smoothie and juice daily my mental clarity has improved, my cholesterol levels dropped, I don’t feel so sick and my face has a “glow”. I’m happy to say I have more energy, healthy looking skin, mental clarity and better sleep.
I don’t expect to get cured immediately.I was following the wrong nutritional diet for more than 46 years I cannot expect regain 100% of my health in 2 months. I will continue with juicing for life.
DESCRIBE YOUR EXERCISE ROUTINE DURING THIS TIME
I walk 30 minutes a day.
I’m waiting for the ok from my doctor to start increasing my daily exercise routine 🙂
WHAT VEGETABLES/FRUITS/ITEMS, etc. DID YOU MOST FREQUENTLY JUICE?
Swiss chards, kale, spinach,ginger, parsley, lemon, pineapple,
green lettuce, beets, apple, cucumber, orange, seasonal fruit. Flax seeds, coconut oil, raw oats, chia seeds, peanut butter or almond butter. Vanilla for flavor.
WHAT WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE JUICING FOR THE FIRST TIME?
To all my sick friends out there:
Juicing is the best that has happened to me. Many of you may reply: The taste and flavor is “nasty” is like eating grass!
And I must say: You can mask the taste with fruits! you can start with spinach (which flavor adapts to any fruit you add)and any of your favorite fruit. The benefit of juicing does not have a match. It nourish your body for its optimum development and guard it from illness and diseases. And if you get sick, the nutrition you get from vegetables and fruits will make you recover faster. Many of us know what to do, but are afraid to fail. I’m telling you: You won’t go wrong with fruits and vegetables!
Give it a try!! You won’t be disapointed if you are serious about improving, cure or maintain your health.
I’m still on my way to get rid of all my medications. Those medications made me develop Barret’s esophagus, which is a chronic irritation in the esophagus that can have cancerous changes. Medicine DOES NOT CURE. It covers up the symptom and also make you sick.
Unlike juicing, medicine does not contribute to cellular regeneration and reconstruction. So my friends.
There are many recipes that are delicious. I’m happy to say I welcome the side effects of juicing: energy, weight loss, healthy looking skin, mental clarity, etc.
Get well and healthy without negative side effects from medication.
I wish you health and happiness 🙂
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION/NOTES/COMMENTS, etc.
My primary goal while juicing was never weight loss. I had gastric bypass surgery back in February. WRONG decision!!!
My goal with the surgery was loose weight, feel great and cure my high blood pressure, fribromyalgia, depression, asthma, allergies and skin eczema that attacks my hands and feet.
I was so wrong.
After surgery, I felt increasingly weak and sick, following a diet of mainly proteins and little greens and fruits, I thought, is this the “healthy diet” I need to follow the rest of my life? Why my blood pressure was still high? why do I feel this sick? Why I don’t have energy? Why am I depressed?
At the same time that this was happening, my mother got diagnosed with terminal cancer with metastasis. I came across a movie about juicing and cancer cures “The Gearson miracle” That movie opened my eyes. If cancer can be cured…eczema, asthma, fibromyalgia, hypertension and other diseases can be cure as well!
I mistakenly thought being fat is the reason why I was sick.
After I did my own research I came to the conclusion that being fat was one of the problems from following the wrong kind of diet and that is how I decided to start juicing and making green smoothies.
I am so happy I have started my journey to regain and claim my health.
This story is to be continued… I cannot wait for the day I can say I’m disease (and medication)free and feeling better than ever!
Additional information: I cut all the manufactured,refined foods, sugars, bread, GMO vegetables such as corn and soy. I minimize the ingestion of meats, eggs, milk and other animal derived products.
I don’t buy everything organic, but I try to get as much of my greens from a local organic farmer’s market.
I’m monitoring my blood pressure and other signs and symptoms under the supervision of my family doctor, who is aware of my dietary changes.
Here is the list of medications I’m currently taking:
-Metoprolol 25mg twice a day (high blood pressure)
-Amlopidine 2.5mg once a day(high blood pressure)
-Ibersatan 300mg once a day(High blood pressure?
-Montelukast 20mg once a day (asthma and allergies)
-Cetirizine 10mg once a day (allergies)
-Hydrochloratizide (water pill) twice a day (blood pressure)
-Hydroxizine 25mg three times a day (eczema/itching control)
-Advair diskus 500/50 twice a day (asthma control)
-Albuterol inhaler as needed for asthma exacerbations.
-Xanas 0.25mg as needed for anxiety attacks
-Effexor 25mg twice a day (fibromyalgia symptoms and depression)
-Protonix once a day for acid reflux.
tylenol as needed for pain related to fibromyalgia.
How about you? When are you going to start your transformation? The choice is up to you.
Make use of this information to hype up your very own detoxification! Start now!
The detoxification process can also take in the form of a juice fast. Here at FitLife.TV, we recommend people to try the Alpha Reset (AR). The Alpha Reset is a 5 Day Juice Fast. It is part of the Juice with Drew System. This is the first step in your detoxification process. If you are just starting out with juicing, do not jump right into a juice fast right away. Just try 1 juice per day along with the rest of your nutrition and see how your body responds. If your body responds well to juicing, then ramp up the number of juices per day. These healthy, nutrient-dense juices can replace that coffee you reach for in the morning or that soda in the afternoon. Here are some of our followers that have tried the Alpha Reset!
