There are a number of benefits of Raw Potato Juice. I advise you to try it. It’s really simple to prepare. We peel off the potato skin because it holds a lot of pesticides and dirt and then cut the potatoes and juice it with water. It’s as simple as that. You may not like the taste. You can mix it with carrot juice, beetroot juice, some people add a little bit of ginger, some people add honey to the potato juice, I like it plain, it tastes like the potato, and it’s great. I usually add it to my morning vegetable juice and I’ve gotten into a habit of having about 200ml potato juice at night as well. Try adding that to your lifestyle. These are the benefits of raw potato juice
Raw potato juice has anti-inflammatory impact which means right from arthritis to those pains in your knees, in your elbows, in your neck, in your shoulders, in your joints, in your back; it has an anti-inflammatory effect and it can reduce that pain. A lot of my clients in Canada and the cold countries with extreme winters where arthritis and the pains to do with arthritis flare up during the cold season have found remarkable relief when they’ve started introducing raw potato juice into their diet. It helps the body reduce chronic inflammation. Now inflammation is good for us as it’s the body’s natural defence mechanism to protect us. It becomes bad for us when it stays chronic, when the inflammation doesn’t come down. So raw potato juice has the ability to direct circulation of blood to all the areas of your body.
A lot of us suffer from many issues due to poor circulation. Proper circulation is important because circulation carries blood to all the cells of your body, billions of cells in your body and blood carries oxygen which is the vital life force and nutrients from the food that you eat to all those parts of the body. It’s not about what you eat it’s about how your body digest what you eat. It’s important that all the nutrients from the food you eat reach all these billions of cells and that happens when you have a good digestive system which comes with your proper blood circulation and potato juice helps increase circulation to all those cells in the human body.
Potato juice is also highly alkaline and we all know the whole acidic alkaline ratio of the body. Most diseases breed in an acidic environment and although the body has a natural pH balance to balance out acidic and alkaline levels with lifestyle and a constant exposure to junk food, stress, antibiotics and medicines, we tend to be more acidic and sometimes we have to help the body become alkaline. Raw potato juice does that fantastically which is why most of my cancer patient’s wake up to some amount of raw potato juice in the mornings and at night or in between the day to help keep their bodies alkaline.
When it comes to skin; applying raw potato juice to your skin is absolutely beneficial especially in terms of eczema. I have a lot of clients from the Middle East, Saudi Arabia Dubai, and Abu Dhabi where because of the kind of climate eczema gets you know enhanced and no amount of application of oils and steroidal creams really work. But we found out that raw potato juice when applied to the areas that have eczema constantly for about 10 to 15 days brings about immediate relief and we’ve also got feedback from children and adults who have been using it for their children that the eczema is totally disappearing.
When it comes to gout, uric acid is something that many people suffer from every single day and you get that pain in your toes and uric acid is not really a good sign for you anyway because it shows and it tells you it’s a bio feedback from your body telling you that your kidney isn’t working right, your kidney is unable to remove uric acid from your body. Raw potato juice has the ability to break down and flush out uric acid from your body. So if you suffer from that uric acid it’s a great option for you to try and get on to a raw potato juice one glass in the morning, one glass at night.
This is something that so many people suffer from extreme acidity, extreme stomach disorders in digestion, flatulence and bloating. For this i recommend one to two tablespoons of raw potato juice mixed with a little bit of water before your lunch, before your dinner and before your breakfast. Do this for about one to two weeks and you will find that you get some amount of relief using raw potato juice to treat this.
