Hey there veg-lovers!
Hope you all had a relaxing and healthy holiday weekend! Today’s W.H.I.P. (What’s Hot in Philly) post highlights a fabulous establishment in Philadelphia- Ryan Crown’s Juice Club. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Ryan last week to discuss his juicing philosophy, his health and wellness journey, and his desire to provide fresh made juice to the great city of Philadelphia. Talk about inspiring!
Located at 1425 Arch Street, Ryan Crown’s Juice Club is an oasis of health, with a peaceful, SoCal-esque atmosphere that transports its visitors from the busy streets of Philadelphia to a place where they can, quite literally, rejuvenate themselves. The produce is fresh, the menu is enticing, and Ryan and his staff are just as knowledgeable as they are welcoming (extremely!).
After losing his mother to cancer at a young age, Ryan fostered an interest in the healing powers of herbs and began an ongoing search for the truth of how to heal the human organism. Eventually this interest led Ryan, a self-proclaimed “ex-meathead” gym buff with bouts of acne, to stumble upon his first juice at a California juice bar four years ago.
With newfound energy and a clearer mind (anyone who has tried fresh vegetable juice can relate to this!), Ryan made his way to Philadelphia, purchased a juicer off of a Craig’s List ad (good ol’ South Street), and began to detox both his body and mind with produce, herbs, and meditation. His enthusiasm for the benefits of juicing was contagious, as he inspired over 80 of his friends and acquaintances to purchase juicers and join in the detox.
Soon enough, Ryan wished to enhance his knowledge of juicing and its benefits. Inspired by Dan McDonald, the “Life Regenerator” (visit his YouTube page for more information), he flew to Florida to learn from Dan’s mentor, Dr. Robert Morse, ND. After a few days of gathering knowledge from Dr. Morse, the leading expert on using fresh juice to heal the body, Ryan returned to Philadelphia. He continued to detox his own body, now with more knowledge of the relationship between acidosis, disease, and cancer. And eventually, Ryan began to juice for others, attracting a “club” of clients who wished to reap the extraordinary health benefits of his tasty drinks, most of which now appear on his menu!
Fast forward a few months and Ryan Crown’s Juice Club moved into 1425 Arch! Today, he proudly serves fresh juices to a number of different personal clients, “club members,” and everyday customers. He mentors individuals with chronic conditions and diseases as well as those simply seeking a healthier everyday lifestyle.
It’s about time we revitalize this city, from the inside out 🙂 Thanks for chatting with me, Ryan!
