Green Juice

This one of Moe’s favorites. Packed with nutrients. I recommend putting kale into everything, as I credit it with a lot of Moe’s recovery.

1 bunch kale (any kind will do, I usually use Red Russian)
1 bunch celery
1 cucumber
1 bunch parsley
1 fennel bulb
3 lemons
2 green apples
2″ piece of ginger (play around with this, as sometimes ginger is not recommended for MS patients)

Beet Juice

Another good one. Juiced beets tend to have a “dirt” taste (as described by Moe). Using grapes cuts the edge.

1 medium red beet
1 small bunch grapes
1 bunch celery
1 bunch kale
1 cucumber
3 lemons
2″ piece of ginger (play around with this, as sometimes ginger is not recommended for MS patients)

Carrot Juice

This is a delicious juice, but I’d stick with the above Green Juice as much as possible. This is a nice treat though.

5 lbs carrots
1 bunch celery
1 cumumber
2″ piece of ginger (play around with this, as sometimes ginger is not recommended for MS patients)

    I was diagnosed in November and started on Rebif. While I know I couldn’t be a vegan, I am very interested in juicing. What type of juicer and what advice do you have for a newbie?

      First off, I would seriously consider cutting out all dairy from your diet. This is one of the most important things my wife did, and many people diagnosed with MS do. It’s a difficult concept for a lot of people, but we are talking about health. Still having dairy in your diet can effect the health of nerve myelin, which has a great impact on people with MS. There is a lot of info out there, just do a Google search on “ms dairy myelin.”

      As far as juicers go, I recommend a twin gear or single gear juicer. Avoid centrifugal, as it heats up the juice and kills enzymes. Centrifugal juicers tend to be less expensive, so if cost is an issue then go with it. For the first year of juicing for my wife we used a centrifugal juicer. After that we bought a Greenstar Elite. There are lots of juice recipes on the web. I’ve found that whatever juice I make for my wife I always put kale in it. Kale is packed with nutrients, and leafy greens are where it is at for inflammatory diseases (and proper health in general).
