How Joe Cross Juiced His Way Back to Health

Joe Cross is an entrepreneur and filmmaker widely known for his award-winning 2011 documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and for creating a lifestyle revolution around juicing and eating whole plant foods. Joe lived with an autoimmune skin disease called chronic urticaria angioedema (hives with large patches of painful irritation and swelling) for 10 years. Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead documents Joe’s health transformation and disease reversal with a 60-day juice fast. The film has been seen by more than 30 million people worldwide. It is definitely worth watching!

In 2021 Joe took juicing to the next level by designing the Nama J2 Juicer, which has become my favorite juicer. It’s a cold press juicer with a huge feeding container like a blender. You fill it up with your produce, close the lid, turn it on, and walk away! It requires very little prep time. No more feeding one tiny piece of produce at a time into a narrow chute. The Nama J2 is a juicing game-changer!
