Feeling as Cool as a Cucumber !

3 Comments

Most are aware of the benefits of eating Cucumber. Knowing is one part of the story , whereas actually consuming them is the important part. A lot of Indians especially in the North of India , include cucumber , carrot , beets , radish , onions etc in their daily diet , as a salad.

I was eating one chopped cucumber everyday as a snack . My intention was to reduce body heat due to consumption of Curcumin. I would eat at random times during the day and was not very regular too.

I have begun drinking Cucumber juice since one month. On the advice of my Ayurvedic Doctor , I now juice two cucumbers first thing in the morning . Takes just a few minutes to prepare a nice big glass of frothy cucumber juice. I peel the cucumbers as I am not sure that they are organic. I do not add any other ingredients and drink the lovely pale green liquid in one go 🙂 . It is neither tasty nor does it have any flavour.

Supposed to do a whole lot of good to the body. It alkalizes the body , reduces cholesterol, reduces Blood pressure, reduces Uric acid levels in the blood, keeps the kidneys healthy, reduces water retention in the body , good for the skin, reduces inflammation, prevents arthritis, has several Vitamins, is very low in calories, keeps the body hydrated etc.

Basically a great detox for the body.

I always had this warm feeling in my body . Since I started drinking this juice , my body feels cooler and my mind seems to be at peace and much calmer.

My ESR levels have always been on the higher side and I hope and wish that the cucumber detox will help in reducing this level.

Higher level of ESR is an indicator of inflammation in the body. Will get a test done after a week.

Inflammation is the leading cause of numerous diseases in the body.

Try this simple detox and see how it helps you. Cucumbers can be eaten throughout the year and are available throughout the year.

Take care !

  2. Hello Shutterbug, do you add some water to peeled cucumber when you put it in the blender? If so, how much water? I love cucumber too!

    • Hello,
      I add a wee bit of water at the end to squeeze out the last bit of juice from the leftover pulp. BTW I use a Panasonic MX AC400 juicer jar which comes with an internal filter. Excellent for juicing !
