Hi James- Your story sounds impressive! I am a veteran member of the Crohns board and this is my first post here. My Crohns is moderate to severe and I am currently on therapy that is controlling my Crohns but not controling my joint pain (which my therapy is also used in RA patients. I've taken so much tylenol & percocet over the last 2 years I believe I'm building a tolerance to it and nothing is relieving this pain. I currently have my 1st rheumy visit coming up in May and have had hand xrays & bloodwork done for RA...so far every thing is negative and I am leaning towards possibly some kind of connective tissue disease.

Having given you a brief background could you further explain the principle of juicing to me? I'm not sure "how" this actually is suppose to work...I am getting very frustrated and desperate at this point and would like to consider this as an option if I understood it better. Thanks-Gayle

I don't understand how vegetable juices would help pain, but hey - if it helps it helps!

broomhilda, you'll need a juicing machine for this task, and it's fairly messy. It's kind of like a weird blender, and removes the non-soluble fiber from fruits and vegetables, leaving the soluble fiber and liquids behind. When you drink the juice, you get all the nutrients because they haven't been cooked away. You'd be surprised at just how much fiber is left behind after a juicing session. That's where the mess comes in. LOL!

It's also suprising how sweet certain vegetable juices are. Of course, carrots and beets are naturally sweet, but even broccoli isn't bad. Do a google search on Juiceman+Juicer - there should be a lot of info out there for you. I got mine several years ago when I could no longer tolerate solid foods, and have used it all this time. I seem to recall that the "juiceman" was the first high-selling juicer, and the man who designed pushed for juice fasts to achieve optimal health. I couldn't speak to the effectiveness or safety of fasting, but it's certainly good for maintaining good nutrition in a natural way instead of relying on pills.

TexasJen- Hmmm, removing the fiber huh...sounds like that's right up my diet ally. Does it help you with pain?

Painfree- I am assuming you wouldn't remove the skins when juicing either, right? As soon as I get my lovely tax bill and see that I may not be totally broke, I'm off to Walmart!

Hello Mark & welcome to the chronic pain forum. As you can see you pulled up a very old post that did not have much action when it was originated. As far as I know we do not have any members in this forum that are juicing. I would think your back pain & watery eyes are a result of something else besides juicing.

Mark, if you don't mind we ask all new members to make their own intro post so that all members will see it & be able to give you a proper hello & welcome aboard. By posting on an old thread like this one not many people will see your post.

I have a couple of ideas & will wait until you make your intro post. Thanks.....Susie

Mark, sorry I guess I was not clear enough about making a separate thread. To do this click Post New Topic, type in a heading, click again & paste the above post there. When you have done that I will lock this thread so no one can post on it. Thanks...Susie
