Make it Watercress Juice!

An ancient green, watercress is said to have been a staple in the diet of Roman soldiers, which they used for energy and brain power. It is a part of the cruciferous vegetable family along with kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used watercress to treat his patients. It was widely available until the 19th century and watercress sandwiches were a staple of the working class in England.

The Liver, Fat-Burning & Weight Loss

The Liver, Fat-Burning & Weight Loss

Your liver is a major fat-burning organ as well as the organ that generates ketones used for energy. It also synthesizes fatty acids, triglycerides, phospholipids and cholesterol that are incorporated into lipoproteins for distribution throughout your body. Your liver uses cholesterol and phospholipids to make bile that aids in dietary fat digestion and absorption in your small intestine. Vitamins and iron are stored in your liver.

Best Juices is you have Diabetes

Diabetes & Juicing

I continue to hear people say that their doctor told them they could not juice because they have diabetes.  Many people think juice is synonymous with fruit juice.  Fruit juice is not what I recommend people juice, and especially anyone with diabetes or other sugar metabolism problems, with the exception of berries and lemon and lime.  You can add lemon and lime to any vegetable juice combination for flavor.

Estrogen Dominance and What to Do About It

Estrogen Dominance and What to Do About It

Detox Toxic Estrogen

Any hinderance of the detoxification process resulting from poor diet, alcohol, drugs or toxins can cause estrogen dominance. The liver has a two-step detoxification process, which filters hormones and toxins in the bloodstream. In phase I, the liver converts substances into toxic free radicals before they are converted into a water-soluble form in phase II. If phase II isn’t operating up to speed, the toxic free radicals build up in your system. Both phases must be in balance in order for proper elimination of waste to occur via sweat, urine, stool or the lungs.

7 Benefits of Wheatgrass Juice

7 Benefits of Wheatgrass Juice

Wheatgrass Juice – How Do We Love You? Let Us Count the Ways1

  1. Detoxification. Because wheatgrass is so loaded with antioxidants, it can bind up toxins, trap heavy metals and root out cancer-causing chemicals and carry them out of your body safely. It’s rich in chlorophyll and other nutrients that help cell repair and bind to free radicals so they don’t damage cells. Get the Internal Cleanse Kit with the free Colon Cleanse Kit along with the Wheatgrass Juice Powder for a powerful spring/summer cleanse.
  2. Weight Loss.  Rich in nutrients that support your thyroid, wheatgrass juice helps boost your metabolism. Also, because it is so rich in nutrients, it satisfies the body’s needs for the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients it needs. Then cravings lessen or cease all together. That makes it much easier to eat less and say no to fattening foods.
  3. Lowers Cholesterol. High cholesterol in the blood contributes to diminished blood flow and can lead to heart disease. Taking wheatgrass has shown significant reduction in cholesterol along with improvement in the good HDL. Wheatgrass stimulates the production of glutathione in the liver, thus helping to lower LDL cholesterol. Cholesterol is made in the liver. Support and cleanse the liver and cholesterol should lower. If you try a liver cleanse, you should see your cholesterol go down. (See 30-Day Detox.) I don’t recommend cholesterol-lowering drugs. My cousin’s husband took a popular drug for his cholesterol and it ruined his life. He has terrible pain in his legs that seems to travel around his body from time to time. None of the natural therapy doctors have been able to help him. He has talked with numerous people such as the man he met on line who said that drug nearly killed him.
  4. Boosts your immune system. Just 2 ounces (or the equivalent in powder) of wheatgrass juice per day can keep you from getting colds and flu. It can also improve your response to seasonal allergies.
  5. Lowers  blood pressure. Wheatgrass helps to open up blood vessels and increases blood flow.
  6. Sparks up energy. Feeling a bit tired these days? Wheatgrass juice is very energizing. In fact, don’t drink it much after 2 pm or it could keep you awake at night due to its energizing effects. Andy by opening your blood vessels, it can help you get more oxygen to your brain. It’s also a great pre-workout supplement.
  7. Balances hormones.  If you have an imbalance in your hormones, you may experience PMS or menopausal symptoms. Wheatgrass helps regulate thyroid and adrenal function and balances the release of hormones. When your adrenals are working up to speed, you feel more balanced, you have more energy and you sleep better. For further adrenal support, I recommend Vitality Renew. For hormone balancing,  FemComfort.
