Potato FlowerThe potato (Solanum tuberosum) is one of the most favorite and popular vegetables in many countries of the world. It came to our lands from the Southern American continent, namely the mountains of Peru, and for centuries it has been used in many folk medicines (starting from Oriental or Russian and ending with Central American) for its numerous therapeutic properties. Recently, it was scientifically proven that the vitamins, organic acids, mineral composites, enzymes and microelements that can be found in raw potato juice have various positive effects on our health.


First of all, potato juice is a valuable natural remedy which can assist in improving the function of our digestive system to a great extent. It can help eliminate an acid condition in the stomach and relieve ulcer pains. For such treatment, it is recommended to use the juice of red potatoes. It is important that red potato juice should be consumed right after is it made. For making a good potato juice, red potatoes should be washed out, dried out, grated and squeezed. Also, you should never use juice of immature potatoes or the potatoes with black dots since such potatoes can contain certain toxic substances. If you mix it with carrot juice (50 g of raw potato juice and 100 g of fresh carrot juice), raw potato juice can help to calm down burning sensation and gastritis pains.

The second most valuable property of potato juice is its ability to treat rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatism, lumbago, and so on. In terms of such treatment, potato juice can be taken with various herbal teas, such as sage or nettle teas. Also, arthritis pains can be very effectively relieved by using a tea made of clean potato peels. Raw potato juice is effective for constant migraines and constipation. Finally, taken regularly on rising in the morning (or 30-20 minutes before breakfast), 100-150 g of raw potato juice can be used as a very powerful liver cleanser. Some patients reported that drinking raw potato juice assisted in relieving certain skin problems, such as eczema, skin blemishes, dry and itchy skin, and so on.

Potato Juice

Since raw potato juice can not be considered too pleasant for drinking, it can be mixed with other juices: not only with carrot or other vegetable juices, but also with fresh lemon juice and honey. In particular, drinking raw potato juice mixed with some honey can substantially lower the risks of possible food poisoning, and also can remove the excess uric acid from the body and disinfect your bowels in a natural way. In addition, raw potato juice has very good properties and can assist in diarrhea treatment.

If you want to try some more or less serious raw potato juice treatment program, I would recommend drinking 100-150 g of fresh juice for a fortnight every morning and every evening, 1.5-2 hours before meal. Then, after a 7-day break you should repeat the treatment for other 2-3 weeks. It is very important to remember that you should eat a light and healthy diet during the treatment. However, you should not start a potato juice treatment or eat a potato diet without consulting a nutritionist or your personal therapist. There are certain problems and ailments connected with the function of our digestive system, which can be escalated by using a potato therapy.

    consumption. By His grace I came across a book originally
    written by the Japanese- testimonials of people healed of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure,etc by taking raw potato juice regularly. I have been taking it several years now and everyone says my skin looks younger than my age and I have no serious cysts problem.

    I just tried raw potato water as indicated in a book by Paavo Airola for the treatment of arthritis. I cleaned, thinly sliced and soaked an organic red potato in a glass of water over night then drank the water this morning. It didn’t taste bad at all, but I added raw honey and lemon to it anyway. I’m hoping this will give me more pain relief.

    I had a couple of questions after coming across the potato juice recipes online. In your articles you say:

    “There are certain problems and ailments connected with the function of our digestive system, which can be escalated by using a potato therapy.”

    What are these problems and ailments?

    And how much is 100-150 g of raw potato juice in simple terms like half a cup, 5 tsps, etc.?

    Thanks, Neva

    A doctor will tell you too take medicine for all these problems – medicine that is not natural and will only poison your body more. The body is very resilient and will bounce back to health if you eat and live organic. My juicer is amazing and I feel much healthier since I bought it. Remember though, organic is key – no garbage in them. Drink 8 oz of organic juice (fruits and vegis) at least 5 times a day, and cut back (completely if possible) all meats and milk…. human bodys aren’t meant to digest those foods. Do all this and you will be surprised how much better you will feel and how much your skin, hair, and everything else looks better!
