Do you use only organic produce or conventional? I know I was juicing for almost 2 weeks straight and I was juicing non-organic produce. By the 8th day, I had this ugly allergic reaction between my nose and mouth and the left side of my lip swelled up. I didnt know what caused this because Im not allergic to anything (that I juiced). My cousin said that it was probably because I didnt use organic produce and I ended up drinking the chemicals and pesticides.

These are what I juiced:
ginger and carrots

spinich, celery ginger

lemon, olive oil, ginger

pear, carrot, lemon, ginger

I knw I used alot of ginger but I never heard of any adverse reactions from it.

i don't know what to tell you about that reaction you had, but I primarily use organic fruits and veggies. Ginger is pretty strong too... maybe it was too much for your system. I can also see hte pesticide argument except if you don't normally eat organic fruits and veggies you probably weren't getting anymore than you usually would...
