One of the ingredients in the Gerson green juice is red cabbage. When I can get my hands on it, I add much more than recommended to the green juice because of how good it is for healing the intestines.
Not only are red cabbages gorgeous to look at, but they are jam-packed with nutrients. It’s especially effective with ulcers, stomach fat, constipation and getting rid of putrefactive waste matter in the intestines.
In the documentary Super Juice Me, Jason Vale invites a bunch of people with different diseases to his juicing retreat for a 28 day juice cleanse. One man there had ulcerative colitis, and my ears pricked up straight away – my nephew has UC. This man didn’t respond initially as well to the cleanse as all the other participants who were having major breakthroughs in their conditions. Jason had an idea to add lots of cabbage to his juices, and he started improving immediately.
You might think that adding cabbage to your juice would make it taste pretty nasty, but it actually doesn’t. It adds a mildly spicy taste that’s not too bad at all when mixed with other veggies and some apple and lemon.
If you have ulcerative colitis, celiac disease or something similar, listen up: you’re going to want to try adding cabbage juice to your regimen.
Dr. Norman Walker observed:
“Cabbage juice has a wonderful cleansing and reducing properties. Sometimes it has a tendency to cause distress because of gas forming in the intestines after drinking it. Such gas is the result of putrefactive waste matter present in the intestines being broken up by the cabbage juice, which causes a chemical reaction to set in and may form gas.”
He also says the sulphur and chlorine cause a cleansing of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestinal tract. But this doesn’t happen when salt is added – so sauerkraut is out.
Coffee enemas are also a great addition to this as they help to get rid of the waste matter (and the gas that it causes).
