The Root Salute Juice – A tribute to Rudolf Breuss

Rudolf Breuss was an  Austrian  naturopath, born in 1899 who believed that a unique combination of vegetable juices could improve health and cure chronic illnesses, specifically cancer.  The book that details his treatment protocol is titled The Breuss Cancer Cure, and has sold over 990 000 copies worldwide. It contains more than 45 000 testimonials from people that have followed the protocol and are now living healthy cancer free lives.


The Breuss Treatment Protocol:

The protocol is strict requiring that participants consume only liquids in the form of vegetable juice, water and herbal teas for at least 42 days. The primary vegetable juice has been called Breuss juice. It consists of 55% red beetroot, 20% carrots, 20% celery, 3% raw potato, and 2% radishes. It is this recipe that Natureland’s Root Salute Juice has been based on.


This is how our Root Salute Juice helps treating cancer

Rudolf Breuss believed that the juice was effective because it supplied the body with nutrients in liquid form. It was his belief that solid foods were often the cause of many diseases. Other naturopaths have focussed on other aspects of the juice recipe, highlighting the fact that the juice contains very little glucose. Studies have shown that cancer cells thrive on glucose but find it difficult to survive in conditions where glucose is limited. Human cells on the other hand can metabolise other energy sources. Still others say that the effectiveness is linked to the alkalinity of the juice.

Maybe all of those theories for the efficiency of the Breuss fasting protocol have a point. Any way: Rudolph Breuss's track record speaks for itself. In 30 years of practice, he had a 96% success rate of treating patients with cancer, by what he claimed as starving out the cancer cells. 


Powerful Root Salute ingredients:

When considering how Root Salute juice might be effective, it is interesting to look at the core ingredients.

Beetroot – contains betalain which gives the vegetable its dark red colour. Betalain is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and detoxification substance. This explains in part why it may be effective in fighting cancer.

Carrot – contain a high amount of betacarotene that is converted to Vitamin A in the body. As Vitamin A has a powerful antioxidant effect in the body, it is believed to aid in cancer prevention and treatment.

Celery– also contains high levels of Vtamin A, but it is the phenolic acids, acetylenics, coumarins and other anti-cancer compounds that perhaps pack the most punch. There are at least 8 families of these compounds that work together to detoxify and help heal the body.

Raw Potato – This ingredient is specifically included as it aid in liver detoxification. By helping to rid the body of impurities through the liver, a person can start to rebuild their immune system.

Radish – help to purify the blood through the kidneys as they are packed with vitamin C, anthocyanins and other antioxidant compounds. Specifically, the isothiocyanates have been found to block the genetic pathways of cancerous cells.


Root Salute juice contains all of these powerful antioxidant ingredients that help you detoxify your body and feel healthy and energised. Drink the juice plain or to improve palatability, you can add a few drops of lemon juice. Sip, enjoy to better health.
