Natural Blendz Renting Juicers

Feb 29, 2012 05:34PM
Natural Blendz, a store that offers freshly prepared juices, smoothies and salads, is now renting juicers for home use. Owners Dwight and Pamela Gordon were inspired to let customers use the juicers after many had said they were interested in juicing after watching the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

The film presents an uplifting story of Joe Cross. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Cross turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food for a juicer, drinks fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days, and has a major transformation.

Because juicing can be intimidating at first, the Gordons offer a demo every third Thursday of the month to show how to juice, answer questions and provide recipes. Customers can choose a 5 or 7-day program and rent a juicer for $5 a day. This will give them the opportunity to notice the benefits and decide if they are interested in investing in a juicer.

Pamela considers the program a community effort to educate people on the benefits of juicing. “Every day, find a way to eat healthier. The more you eat healthy, the more your body craves it.”
