It has been said many times by the most eminent of natural healers that the humble carrot is the most valuable of all the root vegetables. I agree entirely – but with one proviso, that the carrot has been grown organically.
Carrots, like most vegetables, are very susceptible to any chemical that has been used in either fertiliser, pesticide or a detergent used in the cleaning process. One must always choose carrots which have been certified organic and are, therefore, free from all the man-made harmful residues used in commercial agriculture.
The carrot has a long and noble history. The Romans were very partial to carrots and imported them from the Germanic tribes. Charles the Great, of France, had special areas in his kitchen gardens full of different types of carrots and, as early as the thirteenth century, we find the carrot mentioned in many herbal books.
Carrots contain carotene which is converted to vitamin A when ingested by the body. It is best to use organic carrot juice because the carotene lies in the cellulose walls of the vegetable and this is only released when the cell walls are broken down by chewing or cutting. Chewing is not always an efficient way of obtaining optimum amounts of carotene from the carrot; ingestion can only be assured when all the cell walls are broken down by juice extraction methods.
Many people have sluggish intestines accumulating a lot of waste which, as we now know, should be clean and free of decomposing fermented matter. Juice fasting with the inclusion of organic carrot juice promotes good health and is a protection against developmental disturbances. Due to its alkalising action in the body, carrot juice helps to maintain proper pH balance in the intestines.
