Cherie Calbom/ author The Juice Lady’s Living Foods Revolution
When Calbom turned thirty, she had to quit her job due to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Calbom says, "I felt as though I had a never-ending flu. Constantly feverish with swollen glands and perennially lethargic, I was also in constant pain. My body ached as though I'd been bounced around in a washing machine. But not one doctor had an answer as to what I should do to facilitate healing.
I decided that everything I'd been doing-like eating fast food, granola for dinner, and not eating vegetables-was tearing down my health rather than healing my body. I read about juicing and whole foods, and it made sense, so I gave it a try.
One morning I woke up early-I felt like someone had given me a new body in the night. I had so much energy. What had happened? This new sensation of health had just appeared with the morning sun. What a wonderful sense of being alive! I looked and felt completely renewed".
