Eastbourne has so much to offer health-conscious people and juicing is one of those things!
Chiropractor, James Revell, shares his love of Eastbourne, the local people and juicing.
I love Eastbourne. We have a beautiful beach that rivals Bournemouth, a (mostly!) sunny microclimate and an educated population who, by and large, prioritise their health. Many of the people we see here at Lushington Chiropractic have lived in the area for some years and share our passion for Eastbourne. The stability of the population here and their attitude towards health and wellness mean that Eastbourne locals really value chiropractic as a resource that can make a huge difference in their lives!
At Lushington Chiropractic Clinic we focus on wellness, which means that we do not simply chase the symptoms of ‘illness’. Instead, we concentrate our energy on making each guest that comes to us for treatment as healthy as they can possibly be. This may include encouraging gym visits, suggesting stretches to do or particular activities to avoid, and giving nutritional advice or juicing recipes to guests here in Eastbourne. Juicing and blending may not sound like part of the regular advice offered by health professionals, but as a chiropractor I firmly believe in taking a holistic approach to healthcare. I am always looking to share best practice with patients and let them know what is working for me in my constant effort to stay healthy.
Juices and smoothies are such an easy way to pack vitamins into our diet. We understand how difficult it can be to fit a balanced diet into a hectic lifestyle, which is why we are happy to share juice and smoothie recipes that are quick and easy to make. After all, we drink them daily.
As someone with an unfortunate sweet tooth it’s important to me that my juices taste good. No holding the nose and drinking bitter kale for this chiropractor! We aim to use about 80% vegetables and 20% fruit to avoid getting a sugar and insulin spike after drinking our juices, but they still taste great as they have a bit of sweetness.
I usually use a base of carrots with an apple and a pear to taste, but often add a stick of celery, half a pepper and a handful of mint, too. Blending in half an avocado afterwards adds good fats that will keep you feeling full for longer and in our case, will give us the energy to treat our guests!
Louise Lamberti, Doctor of Chiropractic, prefers smoothies as she uses her blender, and can often be seen in the Lushington kitchen with a pint (…of delicious-looking strawberry, oat and banana smoothie!).
Perhaps we should have a Great British Juice-Off and each donate our favourite recipe? I’m sure some of you readers have great suggestions and delicious combinations that we haven’t thought of?
