Remember Popeye and Olive Oyl his girl friend? Robin Williams even made a movie about him some years ago. Elzie Segar created this cartoon character in 1929. Who knows why Mr. Segar chose to make this muscled character a spinach eating machine.
Maybe it was because “spinach” is the most vital food for the entire digestive tract, both the alimentary section of the body (the stomach, duodenum, and small intestine) and for the large intestine or colon, and this has been the case for as long as man had the ability to analyze the digestive system of a human being.
In raw spinach, nature has furnished man with the finest organic material for the cleansing, reconstruction, and regeneration of the intestinal tract.
Raw spinach juice properly prepared, taken at the rate of about one pint (16 ounces) daily, has in a majority of cases corrected the most aggravated case of constipation within a few days or at most a few weeks, naturally.
The use of purgatives or laxatives is unacceptable in the long term due to the irritant effect. Raw spinach juice on the other hand, very effectively cleanses and helps to heal the lower bowels and the entire intestinal tract.
CAUTION: Spinach should NEVER be eaten when cooked or canned unless you are particularly anxious to accumulate oxalic acid crystals in your kidneys which will cause you pain and kidney trouble.
If you combine raw carrot and spinach juice you have one of the most effective curing and cleansing natural treatments know to man.
Raw carrot juice is a natural solvent for ulcerous and cancerous conditions. It is resistant to infections, doing its most efficient work in conjunction with the adrenal glands. A cleaning up of the liver may also take place and the material which was clogging it up will be dissolved. Sometimes there is so much waste release that it overloads the urinary and intestinal channels. This is where the function of the raw spinach juice enters the picture making the combination of spinach and carrot the ideal natural treatment.
In fact if a disease is advanced the action of the carrot and spinach juice may be passed into the lymph system for elimination from the body by means of the pores of the skin. This material has a distinctly orange or yellow pigment (color) and will sometime discolor the skin. This means that the liver is getting a super cleansing job!
Do not be distressed about the skin color, it will disappear. Instead be happy that any disease of the liver has been terminated.
The combination of raw carrot and spinach is truly a miracle in this modern age of technology. This means that we are so caught up in our technology that we have failed to take note of a basic, natural, health maintenance and cancer treatment right before our eyes.
If I have convinced you to try my good health juice recipe, here it is. Always use 2/3 carrot and 1/3 spinach as the combination ratio. Drink a minimum of 3 – 8 ounce glasses a day(6 is better), after juicing, drink the juice within 30 minutes.
When purchasing carrots and spinach, try to find certified organic, it is as free of pesticides, etc. as you can get in this modern age.
So it seems that the creator of Popeye knew a lot more about natural nutrition that we would have guessed.
