    Can’t get organic beets, so am wondering what to use for substitute. Have been juicing regular beets since I got my juicer last December. Why can’t I use non-organic beets when the organic ones are not available?

      Non organic beets would be ok in a pinch, if organic is not available.

    I have been trying to eat healthier but my only option right now is smoothies. I would enjoy having your juicer. It’s beautiful! I do love beets, so I’m anxious to try them in my next smoothie. Maybe someday I’ll juice them 🙂

      I find smoothies much easier than juicing. Even though I have a juicer and a nutri bullet.

    I’m a 29 years old mother that has Multiple Sclerosis. I suffered from MS for 18 years and my health is deteriorating, and I am doing research and everything I can do to help prolong my life. I also know that it will be beneficial for my son who has autism. The only way I can get fruits and vegetables in him if I liquify it :). This will really help my family. Even if I don’t win the juicer I would love if anyone can give me advice on me and my son health condition.

    Thanks

      Try avoiding all grains and dairy for a while and see if that helps.
      Do some research on food sensitivity.

    I really appreciate all the information in your video. Beets are one of my favourite veggies. I grate them raw into my salads. Would love to try it in a juice..I am trying everything possible to treat osteoarthritis in my hands which is getting more severe. Not being able to use your hands is not fun. I am eating a raw vegan diet but would like to get the punch from juicing. Please consider me for this give away.
    Thanks. Estelle

    I have been diagnosed twice with two different cancers, so am carefully watching my diet and could surely use a juicer to good advantage. Thank you for the chance to win one!

    I have been studying nutrition for awhile and do know about the cleansing of beets. My husband has been sick for a long time and I have been trying to get him on a cleanse but he doesn’t think he needs one or really doesn’t want one. Using the beets is one way I can help his body cleanse without him really knowing he is getting one. I have learned some things from this video that I didn’t know about beets and am greatful to learn. I am more excited now to do beets for my husband. Thanks for the video.

    I am over 40 and very out of shape, I am trying to get healthy before its too late, I am learning about acidiity and toxins and going to the gym. I would like to win the juicer because juicing is a perfect way to get me to consume vegatables and get the nutrients I need to make this life style change. I am a poor girl though who works hard, but is single so I have a ton of bills, bought a cheap juicer, but it doesn’t work well
    I promise I would love my juicer an use it daily
    😀

    I would love to start juicing but I find the machines very expensive. I would like to be able to juice for my whole family, two adults and two kids. We try to eat healthy and go to the gym (kids too) but a lot of the time we just feel really run down and really low on energy, due to hectic lifestyle of the average family. Work, school, kids, camps, gym etc. I would like to try to see if juicing really could help perk us up and feel more energized to be more consistent in living a healthy lifestyle. Kids usually do what they see and I want to be a good example for them.

    My daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 months ago. She chose the holistic way of treatment, so in support of her, we all changed our lifestyle to whole, raw food, organic eating. It has been the most wonderful life change we could have imagined! My husband is off all medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. I am weighing what I did when I was 20. I wanted to lose weight, but my body has actually found its ideal, healthy weight on its own. We are drinking shakes, and have purchased blenders, food processors, etc. I would love to add the juicer to our holistic way of life. My counter in the kitchen has a totally new look, and the juicer would fit right in between the Vitamix, and the food processor. It’s nice that you’re offering this opportunity to own one of these great juicers! Thank you for that!

    Dear Sir: I would like to have a juicer as I could make many kinds of juices that are easier for me to digest . I was not aware of the juice possibility of the beet but I have made beet salad sometime. Also I am a 76 year old woman with quite bad osteoarthritis and I am trying to straighten my knee so I don’t need an operation. Thank you very much for considering me for the juicer draw. Sincerely, viola Inkila

    I want to win your juicer because I am 56 years old and I lost my job Thanksgiving I am broke I have a small garden but no way to juice I have been sick for a while I need to save my life and I know juicing can do that. I have the will power to do it I just do not have the money to do it. I am a single dad with my son in college and I need to get healthy. Now with all that said I will still give away the juicer to someone sicker than me and in my giving I believe I will find my answer!
