Therapeutic Value of Juice Diet

A number of persons occasionally inquired whether vegetables, fruits or juices have beneficial effects on sexual life.

In Kenya, sexual life is shy and reserved and no methodical sex education is imparted, hence, this simple, natural activity is believed to be complex. Yet, many frightened people or those enticed by alluring advertisement run after medicines in order to acquire or increase sexual ability.

As a matter of fact, NO medicinal herb or calyx can improve sexual ability.

These medicines perhaps bring a temporary sensual excitement, but in the long run they greatly damage the body. These drugs produce malefic heat in the body. Moreover, their consumption causes skin diseases and abdominal pain.

Despite this, the manufacturers of such drugs make a fortune out of the ignorance or anxiety of people.

Some present doctors too prescribe synthetic hormones for the treatment of sexual weakness. These doctors take advantage of people’s eagerness for regaining their lost sexual ability.

Of course, the use of such drugs can, to some extend, be justified only if the endocrine glands are diseased and fail to produce secretion. But in the absence of any definite cause a doctor should not prescribe such drugs.

In the human brain there is a part called ‘Limbic System’ which is the source of hunger, thirst, sex plus many more.

Fruits and vegetables properly stimulate this ‘Limbic System’.Vitamin ‘A’ richly contained in spinach, carrot, watermelon, mango and plums help to transform cholesterol into active sexual hormones.

Similarly, vitamin ‘B’ richly contained in potatoes, bananas and pumpkin plays a major role in the production of sexual hormones.

Bananas are rich in potassium which relieves a mental stress. Vitamin ‘E’ is commonly known as ‘anti-sterility’ vitamin. Its deficiency causes impotence. Wheat-husk, raw vegetables, fruits, millet, sesame plus many more contain plenty of vitamins ‘E’.

The health of prostrate gland is important for the regulation and prolongation of sexual life.

Zinc minerals are useful to keep prostrate gland active. This mineral is easily available from French beans, cucumber, onion, spinach, carrot and cabbage juice.

The addiction to tobacco, cigarettes, marijuana, liquor plus many more vices destroy valuable vitamins contained in the body.Fruits and vegetable juices control this damage and help to eliminate these effects.

In short, the regular consumption of fruits, vegetables and their juices produces sexual ability. Improves it and also maintains it for a very long time.

    I would like to contact someone on juice therapy or detox please give me someone?

  2. For juice detox I would suggest Catherine Healing Foods (For more information on this subject please contact us). Wanjis also claim to have special porridge mixes which serves to boost the immune system of patients suffering from HIV/Aids. In my own opinion, HIV/Aids patients do not necessarily require specially formulated products to boost their immune systems. What a patient suffering from HIV/Aids requires is positive thinking. All the same, Something is better than nothing and its everything for a healthy life. In short why not give Wanjis products a try.

    could you send me details of shops or supermarket where one can buy this white's ginger/mukombero.

  4. @Njuguna Ginseng extract is mukombero's active ingredient, for now, Pharmacy & Poisons Board have only approved Ginsomin capsules which contains ginseng extract and ginseng root. I'm sure most of the chemists stock this product. The reason why I have not recommended the powder and liquid form of mukombero is because its dosage is not yet known and it has not yet been approved by the board.

  5. @Njuguna Other than mukombero tonic, which increases libido. Other trees whcih are in use, especially by the Kamba Community is muuru (Grewia sp.) and mululuwi (Balanites aegyptiaca). The roots and leaves decoction is then taken as an aphrodisiac.
