I started with recipes from Jason Vale ("The Juice Master")

Wow, Streetsurfer, so knowledgeable....or at least, you have me fooled....LOL
Now do any of you knowledgeable folks have any ideas for a 3 mo. old infant who is having bad reflux....seems to have milk allergies so his mom stopped nursing....now he's tried every formula out there and just isn't thriving?
the baby is probably not doing will with mom's milk because of mom's diet :-) tell her to stay away from foods as if she has acid reflux or GERD and see how the baby does. I've read online of a story where a woman didn't get real acid reflux problems until she started taking the meds and I was shocked. So for a 3 month old to be on meds for it seems drastic but tell the mom to try changing her own diet and then reattempt breast-feeding. Even as a raw-foodist you can ingest foods that can agrivate the stomache. I love tomatoes but now that I have GERD I no longer eat them as much as I used to...yes I miss them :-) I hope this works out...let me know if she tries it :-)

I had the same issues gastritis and acid reflux and it's completely cured now. Juicing helps it and so does a raw diet, but not overnight. For me it took a couple of weeks for the symptoms to go away and a few months for it be gone completely (in other words it doesn't come back if I eat normal for a couple of days) anymore, it's just gone. That being said in the beginning even healthy foods will give you symptoms, but over time they will dissipate after your insides heal up and start working correctly again. I juice one to 3 times a day now with no problems.
Oh and I don't go too heavy on the carrots I only have carrot juice a couple of times a week because it's so rich. I usually do green juices (celery, parsley, cucumbers, apples, a little lemon, spinach, kale, beets, ginger) those are my regulars in different combinations.
I would look into the work of Brenda Watson and Dr. Steve Hines out of Texas. They're digestive wizzards! ;) My first guess would be low hydrochloric acid levels? You might try cutting the juice with 50% water to ease your way into it. :)
i would like to be able to juice 2 times a day..but i work a late night job so i wake up around 12pm by the time im ready to make a juice its around 1..after juice i want to get some cardio in after that i want to eat lunch now here is the question to juice a 2nd time i would have to juice about an hour after lunch or an hour after dinner..i would prfer an hour after lunch if i did that i would be eating dinner within 2-3 hours of my last juice
so my question is is this bad practice basically from lunch on im consuming food or juice until 8pm is that too much for my stomach
