It is said that a top quality juicer will remove many of the pesticides anyway in the waste fibre. Another good reason for investing in a good juicer.
Yes, I've read that and am interested in getting one if this works out for me. I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude before I spend the money for one of those top quality ones though. Another advantage is how quiet they are as my hubby works shift work so I can't crank up my helicopter-noise-level centrifugal juicer until he gets out of bed.

Well, once upon a time, there was a member here who believed Juicing was the answer to all chronie woes. Had he/she not been so militant about his beliefs perhaps we all could have learned something. It would be nice to read about juicing experiences without all that drama so I hope this thread continues in the present tone.


I guess we all need something silly to get angry about: politics, religion - for some it is juice.

Now soup... that's different. Soup matters.

This is a really helpful thread. My dad recently asked me about juicing and I told him that I had no idea... Now I do.

I really don't know what I am supposed to eat, drink or even how I am supposed to feel.

Ehh, this disease is annoying.

I got a juice last week, form an organic juicing company that is local. I was at our downtown farmer's market. I was sick within a short amount of time. Keep in mind, I'm undiagnosed, but this set me off. I felt like crap quickly. I absolutely love juicing, but it is too much on my system right now. : (

Most vegetables are alkaline and its extremely difficult to maintain a balanced PH without them in your diet. Your PH is vital in maintaining the correct metabolic functioning in your cells. Juicing is a gateway to be able to bring healthy vegetables into your diet without all the cellulose. Drinking raw juice is a quicker and easier way to digest highly nutritious food and I for one suffer far less as a result.
I recommend the screw type juicer (such as an Omega) rather than the centrifugal type as these are a lot more efficient and allow you to juice green leafy vegetables such as Kale and Broccoli. They are also easier to clean than the centrifugal types.
By the way, don't think for one moment I can manage to drink green vegetables on their own but then that's the great thing about juicing, you can throw anything you like in to improve the taste such as apples, carrots, beetroot, just as long as you have the right kind of juicer.

We bought a juicer specifically because of my sons Crohns, but the entire family joined him. It made a huge difference . We were juicing, and having smoothies for breakfast. We kind of backed off on it and now he's having a little trouble, so we're going back to juicing today. I found a great guy on youtube who has good videos of juicing. We try different things and I've read which veggies/fruits do what.. We've used kale, carrots, apples, ginger, cilantro, peaches, etc. they really helped all of our systems.

We bought an Omega 8004 juicer after my son was diagnosed with Crohn's. We make kale/chard + carrot + a small amount of apple + basil/parsley/cilantro. He seems to tolerate it well and likes the taste. I'm really happy he's able to have some fresh veggies in his diet. I did a lot of research and this type of juicer, the masticating type, is the best type for greens. It's also easy to clean.

Juicer should be the #1 thing you buy after diagnosis. You need your vegetables quite dangerous having a diet without them.

When experiencing a flare, juicing is all i do and intake. Maintains a somewhat stable nutritional balance while alleviating the need for vitamins (pill form). To the point I have juicing books for ideas/tips. If you do decide to go this route, please do not skimp on price. Some of these are expensive, but with the workout chronies and IBD suffers put them through, it is well spent.

I've been juicing every day for over a year now. I can't go without it! I've never had so much energy and I've been lucky enough to be in remission since I started my juicing regimen. I can't say or not if the juicing got me into remission, but it most definitely has given me incredible energy (and hair, skin, and nails). I've even gotten my husband into it. In fact, he just brought me a juice he created as I was typing this.

Anyone care to share specific juice recipes? I follow Drew Canole, he has a youtube channel with different juices. His recipes are not crohns or IBD specific, just general recipes and he explains what things do like lemons are alkalizing, etc.

I have a friend that owns a Vitamix machine and swears by juicing. What does anyone think about the differences between a high end mixer like the Vitamix, and a Jucing machine? I am going to try juicing, but don't really know or understand which is better.

There are three "basic" styles of juice extractors. Centrifugal, Masticating, and Hydraulic Press. They each masticate the fruit/vegetable in a different way but will achieve the same results, roughly. If interested in pursuing any of these, take your time and do research. As for recipes, the sky the limit. My stand-by is 3 red apples, 1 green, 3-4 carrotts. Makes one glass.

Hi,
I'm new here. A Crohn's Newb for 6 weeks and i've had some serious vegetable cravings but don'e have a juicer. I would buy one but I live in a foreign country and can't see investing the joey just to leave it behind when I leave.

I saw that many people have opted for buying pre made juices. What was the reaction? Gas? Diarrhea?

Also, as for soups that are being prepared, do most of you still avoid the "gassy" stuff (peas, broccoli, etc.)?

After you flareups subside, how many of you are able to return to salad and raw fruits?
