Juicing For Health | Juicing To Lose Weight | Juice Lady Cherie


I have worked with countless numbers of people who have lowered their blood sugar and managed their diabetes with diet alone. Following are some top foods and juices that are very helpful to include in your diet, along with avoiding all sweets, alcohol, starchy carbs such as potatoes and grains (bread, crackers, rolls, chips, etc.) and junk food. If you struggle with high  blood sugar, I recommend my book The Juice Lady’s Remedies for Diabetes.

  1. Dark leafy greens that include kale, spinach, collards, romaine, and Swiss char— all rich in magnesium—a very important mineral in managing blood sugar. A study from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill points to magnesium and a lowered risk of diabetes.
  2. Seeds— chia, flax, sunflower, pumpkin, hemp, and sesame seeds
  3. Celery juice is rich in flavones that lower blood sugar levels and prevent sugar spikes.
  4. Garlic
  5. Broccoli

John’s Testimony

 My wife and I have been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. To help her keep her blood sugar levels down I came up with the following recipe. Before my wife took this each day her blood sugar was always over 200, but everyday she drinks it, the next morning when she checks her blood sugar, it is always below 200. Juicing does make a difference! I know you know that, but others may not. And I thought you’d like to pass it on. 

The recipe: 

  • 1 small can of V8 juice (5.5 oz) 
  • 3 handfuls of spinach leaves
  • 5 large celery stalks 
  • 5 large radishes 
  • 2 apples 
  • 5 long carrots 

Makes about 28-30 oz. of juice. I split it between us, giving her the lion’s share. I use an Omega, single masticator juicing machine. When she first saw the drink she was not a fan. She said it looked like mud! So I gave it that name. We now refer to it as our “healthy mud” drink. She’s become a partial convert to juicing, and frequently she’ll jokingly ask, “Have you made my healthy mud today?” 

Shalom & blessings, John
