Making freshly juiced drinks of mostly organic fruit and vegetables is a critical part of the process of healing your eyes and body. The health of your eyes is tied to the health of your body. Juicing is a great way to get the freshest, purest nutrients into your body in the most easily digested manner - and in turn having those nutrients readily available in the quickest time. It can take only several minutes for nutrients from fresh juice to be utilized by your body. And once they are in your body, they are carried through the blood stream to your eyes.
Benefits of Juicing
Enzyme protection. Enzymes are the catalysts for your body's essential and effective functioning. They increase the rate nearly all the chemical reactions in every cell and different glands and organs produce these enzymes in the process of regulating metabolism, circulation, respiration, reproduction and the functioning of the brain. Within your digestive system specific enzymes help digest food. They break down food into smaller building blocks so that the body can absorb them rapidly. They are found in your saliva, your stomach, your intestinal tract and pancreas.
They convert proteins into peptides and amino acids. They convert fat into fatty acids and glycerol. They convert starches and sugars into glucose.
Enzymes are in fruits and vegetables and help in the breakdown of those foods by your body. But they become sluggish above 118°, and deteriorate completely above 130°. Note, microwaves destroy them completely. Juicing, therefore, is a way to consume the maximum possible enzymes. It should be noted that some very high speed juicers or blenders operate at such high speed that the temperature can rise about 188° or even 130°.
|Juicers There are many excellent juicers. We recommend those that operate at a slow 80RPM, slowly enough to not create heat. Most juicing equipment works at 3600RPM or higher. The Omegas are known as "masticating juicers." They chew up fruits and vegetables slowly, preserving nutrients and enzymes. The downside is slightly slower operating time and slightly longer cleanup.||

Stargardt's DiseaseAlthough Stargardt's is similar to Macular Degeneration, because Vitamin A should be avoided, it is probably better to avoid juicing.
