So I thought this book was going to be a standard recipe book cover to cover, but I was pleasantly surprised... It starts by describing the different types of juicers, both their strengths and weaknesses. Then it goes into a list of diseases or heath problems and what concoction would be the best, using the best kind of vegetable, fruit or herb. Its really pretty interesting to read about what fixes what and what to NOT use depending on your problem. If doctors didn't use medicine, and used home made juice remedies, this would be their reference. Great book!!
