Thanks for that reminder Blackandi! It reminded me to send that trailer to my son and his family.
DH and I juice every morning--been doing that for over a year now and neither of us has been sick a moment in that time.
Let me just remind everyone, this isn't so much about fruits and it's mainly about vegetables. We always add some apple (cut out the core), lemon and ginger to our juice which makes it very, very tasty. You can toss in a piece of a lemon, peel and all (wash it good if it's not organic--same with the apple). If you do too many fruits you will be getting too much sugar so be sparing with them; only use them to sweeten up the greens--you need to put a lot of dark, leafy greens in the juice.
Here's what we generally use:
Lacinato or curly kale (mainly lacinato 'cuz it's powerful)
Brocolli or cauliflower
Turnips and rutabaga
Cabbage, red or green
a couple of green onions
a chunk of ginger
a medium apple
and there are lots of other things you can experiment with just for fun. If you can stand it, use mustard greens, dandelion greens and any bitter greens. Personally, they are a bit strong for me but I know they are very nutritious.
EAT A LOT OF YOUR RAW VEGGIES JUICED!! And don't forget to gently cook some too for your meals.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
