This juicer recipe was contributed by Penny - a Happy Juicer fan who has used this recipe to successfully treat her Lymphoedema. Lymph is a clear fluid found in the tissues that normally flows back into the blood circulation system through the lymphatic system. Lymph nodes help to filter and remove waste matter and bacteria from our tissues and so contribute to the successful functioning of the immune system.
Lympoedema is a condition caused by the damage or incorrect functioning of the vessels in the lymphatic system and results in blockages and fluid build up in the affected tissues. This can result in swelling of the affected tissues (oedema means swelling).
Penny could not walk due to one of her feet being distorted by the amount of fluid build up in her foot and leg. Since researching the nutritional properties of fruits and vegetables and juicing, and then devising this juice recipe that she drinks every day Penny is now able to wear shoes and walk again. Many thanks to Penny for sharing her recipe with us.
Penny stresses the importance of using raw fresh beetroot as the pickled or cooked forms does not have the same healing affect.
