Just a quick note for people who make their own fresh juices.
Make sure you chew your juice. Yes I know that sounds funny but the chewing action mixes saliva with the juice allowing your body to more easily utilize and absorb the nutrition, just gulping it down or drinking it without chewing you'll get less nutrition.

I think it'll probably be different for different people and it's a matter of finding what works best for you. I wish I could provide something more substantive, but that's what we seem to find time and time again.

I make juice every morning. Few apples bunch of carrots and a large beet. Working construction I don't want to risk sitting in in portapotty all day so I don't eat until I'm home. The juice gets me through the day.

David is right it will vary per person. Cabbage in cooked form bothers me but cabbage juice is tolerable in small amounts. I haven't had too much of the juice but have purchased the fermented one.

This study shows how it helps with ulcers http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1643665/

I have been considering juicing for over a year now, and after my most recent trip to hospital (last week), I decided to order a Nutri Bullet, so I get as much nutrition from vegetables (and a little fruit) as possible. The solids that go in appear to come out as pure liquid - not sure how true this is, but I'm willing to try!

Carrot and beetroot are the vegetables that I am most looking forward to using, however I am also considering adding small amounts of banana... I've heard people say that during a flare, bananas really help them.

Any advice would be appreciated here.

Has anyone used wheat grass juice with success?

Love fresh carrot juice (organic) feels like totally soothing.
As for wheat grass - I have tried similar. Organic barley green with really good success. I do not use it all the time since I do not want my system to get use to it and not be able to use it to shock my system as crazy as that sounds. It helped heal a very difficult fistula for me.

Peace to you

Hello,

My husband juices cabbage, apple & adds liquid turmeric. He seems to tolerate it. Might add the carrots after reading this post.

When I was at my worst, I noticed that drinking carrot juice seemed to help my gut. It was just a theory of mine, I had no real backing for it.

I discovered this by accident too.

But it is not a theory. It is apparently very well-known that carrot juice can settle an upset tummy.

It works wonders for my UC

I go through about three kilos of organic carrots a week.

Vast improvements to UC since I started juicing and fasting on carrot juice will always reverse a flare up.

But I cannot stand bottled carrot juice; it tastes revolting.

Freshly made is the only way to go for me. I add turmeric root and ginger root to it, for additional taste and health benefits.

In fact, I think I will have one now - yum.

My favorites are carrot, orange, ginger and 1/2 carrot 1/2 coconut milk sprinkled with grated nutmeg. I practically lived on the last one before my resection surgery when I was on full liquids.

I juice twice a day. Since I started juicing, I almost forgot I had Crohn's. I don't use a lot of carrots because they are high in sugar but I get plenty of vitamin A in my juices. I cannot believe how great I feel and I know juicing is the reason.
Indeed fructose from the carrots may be a problem and especially so in a flare. You said "you don't use a lot of carrots" - what exactly this means in terms of juice quantity/ day?
Thank you

General question, but I've been debating about juicing for Protein Losing Enteropathy. I've found that carrot juice/soup is great but with other juices/soup combinations, I get alot of heartburn. Anyone else find this?

I see a lot of you touch upon the vitamin A benefits with carrots, but they have others:

"3. The juice is also an excellent source of many nutrients in a balanced formula that is superb for most people. These include vitamins A (beta carotenes), B, C, E, and others. " drlwilson.com/Articles/CARROT JUICE.HTM

Also mentioned in that article is that it has one of the most bioavailable forms of calcium. And to get in 10-12oz of carrot juice a day, I've read 8 ounces you'd get from 1 pound of carrots!

A new juicer is high on my list. I hope to get one in the next few weeks.
I had one, but it wasn't very good. Still loved the carrot and apple juice I made with it though.

Juicing is very healthy.

Raw carrots make me feel full / bloated and premade carrot juice makes me feel gassy and I think it increases my frequency.

I really hate juicing stuff myself, cleaning the juicer is such a headache.

I think they're usually okay boiled up in a soup though.

Are baby carrots and regular carrots different in any aspect that effects their digestibility?

While making carrot juice, one uses a lot of carrots (if you're drinking a lot every day) and though drinking the juice is a great way to hydrate your body, I'm worried about it its sugar content.

As you can see HERE, one large carrot contains 3.5 grams of sugar. Now, it may not sound much, but if you're using a lot of carrots, then the sugar content can affect your intestines badly.

What do you guys think?

Maybe diluting the juice with water can help solve this issue OR, instead of juicing, carrot smoothie would be even better I guess.

Not your imagination. I have found this too. It REALLY helps my gut. Last time I had a flare, I just drunk carrot juice for a few days. Flare cleared up. I brought some carton carrot juice once and thought it was extremely revolting. But I really love my own fresh carrot juice. I wonder how it helps?

Never heard this. If I ever have a flare, first thing I do is stop eating and survive on juice and water for a few days, and the flare clears up very quickly.

Vastly different from having a chocolate bar or cola though.
