Apple Juice and Cider

I also produce Dowdings apple juice and cider. This is mostly from my own apples - I have a small orchard.  But I also use apples I am given by many people who have trees that produce far more then they can use.  The Wild Orchard apple juice is a blend of dessert apples and cookers, whilst the Tower Brue cider is mostly brewed from a blend of various cider varieties.

People and diets

Max Tuck is a Hippocrates trained educator, keen to help people "adopt a living foods lifestyle as an excellent way to combat the everyday stresses of modern living", stying herself as The Raw Food Scientist. She has a huge commitment to using wheatgrass juice within the diet, and you can read more of what she says here Max would definitely say that the ideal situation would be to have freshly juiced grass every day. However, being pragmatic she also realises that for some people that isn't always possible. Therefore compromise is necessary, and we are the people who can help fulfil the objective where the "shortcut" is needed. With our juice, given the way it is grown and processed, it isn't a very big shortcut as it's close to being the real thing.

The gut microbiome. Do you know what it is? It's actually the most vital part of your body, grossly underrated, but in desperate need of being fed and cared for properly. Once it goes wrong, that is the precursor to everything going wrong. So, feed it properly!

The pinnacle of health is likely to be achieved by those who follow a raw food diet. That's not easy in the UK compared to somewhere on the tropics with an all year round growing climate. However with the right advice, and support, it is achievable. Many come to the raw food diet through severe health challenges. One of the best supporters and educators on this is Jill Swyers. She is an accredited Hippocrates Health Educator, offering guidance at all stages. Jill is offering "naturopathic nutrition with balance". She runs courses in the UK, Portugal and Lithuania.

Lisa Simpson writes one of the best raw food blogs. She includes many simple recipes for simple-to-create meals, and lots of inspiration to reflect that which she has gained in her 5 year journey to becoming more invigorated, happier and healthier.  She's a long-term customer and wonderful enthusiast for our juices....we love Lisa!
