I'm inclined to mostly agree with johndoe07. I wouldn't go so far to say that anxiety is the cause of fibromyalgia, but it certainly would be a contributing factor to fibromyalgia AND many other dis-eases with fancy names. You can only stand to benefit by finding ways to lessen your anxiety.

I had chronic fatigue syndrome. I was never diagnosed with fibro, but I ached all over like I had the flu. Six months later I finally got into raw juicing and cured myself. I made the juice with 6 carrots, 1 glove of garlic, 1 rib of celery, and a few sprigs of parsley. this drink was recommened in my juice book as for the immune system. You have to drink the juice as soon as you make it because the enzymes die after it is made, so of course bottled carrot or other juices would not work since cooking and pasterization, even sitting around causes enzymes to die.

I am SO hooked on juicing. I have fresh fruit and veggie juice every day. I always toss in an apple or two with my veggie juice plus a half a lemon and a lime. So if i use alot of romaine lettuce and celery in a juice, it always tastes like lemon-lime.

I have the Jack laLanne juicer. It's easy to clean. just 4 parts to clean each time. The top, blade, filter basket and bottom part. I put a bag in the catch basket so easy cleanup.
The time i bought my juicer, Target had offered a $25 gift card when buying it, and the juicer was $100. So got it for $75. It's easily the most used appliance in my house.

There are better juicers out there, and i consider the one i have a starter juicer. When we wear this one out, I want to get either a Vitamix blender or an L'equip or other juicer. One that wastes less of the fruit and veggies. Someone said ebay is a good place to get a good deal on juicers.

I own a Champion juicer. I really love it. It was high on the list as being recommended. It has something like a 20 year warranty. I also have a Vitamixer, but I can't stand juice with all of the pulp, although it will make delicious raw soups, which I have not tried but have tasted when sampling them at Costco.

One other reason why I got a Champion Juicer is because you can freeze fruit and push it though using a solid blade, and it comes out like ice cream and is delicious. But I never use it. Shame. The fruit seems to change flavor when doing this and makes it taste even better--maybe the freezing is what changes the flavor.


Spending the money for a good juicer is worth it. Like Pinksting I had a Jack LaLaine one, but it was a cheaper model, and it didn't last.

What I have learned from others with fibro is that they don't sleep well. When I had chronic fatigue with achiness all over my body I didn't sleep well either. The first week I began juicing my energy level rose, and I was able to sleep. I think the calcium or whatever else that is in carrots and celery helped me to sleep, which is why I have tried to continue juicing, but one does get lazy especially after you get well.

My vegan daughter is into juicing big time. When I was visiting her, she made a variety of juices for me. She uses an Omega juicer which produces a very high quality juice, and it is easy to use and clean. If/when I buy a juicer of my own, I intend to purchase an Omega Juicer.

Actually, you have to drink the juice within 10 minutes of it being out. Also, they have some containers that you can fill to the rim and seal your juices for up to 48 hours. Though, no longer than 24 hours is reccomended. of course you need to keep the juice iced or refrigerated during this time. I learned this from my juicing video when I bought my green power juicer . I also, have Jack Lalannes juicer which is the one I use mostly to make my carrot, romaine, and alfafa sprout juice. It is a cure for balding
