GO ALKALINE!

Alkaline Balance Can Help Fight Viruses Viruses and bacteria thrive in an acidic environment. Keeping your pH in the slightly alkaline range of 7.3 85- 7.4 can reduce the risk and lessen the severity of bouts of viruses. A diet that is dominant in acid-forming foods (meat, dairy, grains, sweets, coffee, alcohol, sodas, fried foods, and junk food) is a significant contributing factor to chronic inflammation and bouts with viruses. Excess acid-forming foods, drinks, and lifestyle put stress on your digestive system and leads to chronic inflammation.  When the acid gets too high in your bloodstream, Other things happen. Inflammation impacts your joints, arteries, and fat cells.  Your body will hang onto fat cells for storage and you won’t be able to lose weight. The body’s attempt to neutralize all that acid generates free radicals and leads to further inflammation and damaged tissues.  This robs your body of its life force.  When your body is alkaline balanced, meaning slightly alkaline (7.365 – 7.4 pH), it converts free radicals to harmless substances. When you eat, drink, and live an acidic lifestyle, your body becomes toxic. Your joints can become inflamed and painful and your muscles can hurt.  The key is to alkalize your body by eating a diet that helps you restore an internal pH balance. Many people that have incorporated a juicing lifestyle with an emphasis on greens find that joint and muscle pain disappears.  This is one of the reports I often hear early on when someone starts juicing.  Alkaline rich foods, which are mineral-rich, include vegetables, fruit, sprouts, seeds, and nuts.  Also, drink wheatgrass juice. It is one of the most alkalizing foods on earth. They help your body store up mineral reserves, in which an excessive acid-forming diet drains the reserves.  At that point, your body must rob minerals from bones (calcium), teeth, muscles (magnesium), and organs in an attempt to neutralize acids.  You end up with pain in your body. You set yourself up to contract the current virus more easily. You can turn all this around with an alkaline-rich diet that is about 75 percent vegetables, fruit, sprouts, seeds, and nuts.  Drink several glasses of green juice per day if you are in pain and/or not alkaline balanced. Foods to Avoid that Contribute to Inflammation Trans fats and polyunsaturated vegetable oils.GlutenDairySweetsAlcoholCaffeine Recipe of the WeekGreen Delight Dark green leafy vegetables are among the most concentrated source of nutrition of any food. They are a rich source of minerals including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium plus vitamins K, C, and E, along with many of the B vitamins.

Surprising New Info on the Virus

Surprising New Info on the Virus

Surprising New Info on the Virus “According to Nobel-prize-winning scientist Michael Levitt, the rate of SARS-CoV-2 mortality never experienced exponential growth, as was predicted, which suggests a majority of people may have had some sort of prior resistance or immunity. He believes that both some degree of prior immunity and large numbers of asymptomatic cases are important factors. He describes indiscriminate lockdown measures as ‘a huge mistake,’ and advocates a ‘smart lockdown’ policy, focused on … protecting elderly people.” A study published on May 14, 2020, in the journal Cell, found 40% to 60% of people who had not been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 still had resistance to the virus on the T-cell level. According to the authors, this suggests there’s “cross-reactive” T cell recognition between circulating ‘common cold’ coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2. In other words, exposure to coronaviruses that cause the common cold appears to allow your immune system to recognize and fight off SARS-CoV-2 as well. Professor Karl Friston, another statistician whose expertise is in mathematical modeling, believes resistance or prior immunity could be as high as 80%.1 1 – For more information, see Dr. Mercola: click here. This is good news! Fending off COVID-19 has a lot do with the immune system. And we have a great deal of control over our immunity. I’m reprinting what I post in a past newsletter regarding how to keep your immunity strong. You can strengthen your immune system and keep any infection from becoming a serious threat. Here are some things we should all be doing at this time along with washing our hands.  Self-care is THE MOST important thing you can do. 1. Eat raw garlic every day. Raw garlic has anti-viral properties.  It’s a big boost to your immune system. You can juice up a garlic shot— carrots, lemon, ginger, and garlic. Or you can just finely chop up a clove at night and swallow with water before going to bed. 2. Ginger — turmeric shots.  Juice 1 oz of ginger and 1 oz turmeric and mix with an ounce of lemon juice. Take this every day. It’s an immune builder in a shot glass. 3. Don’t eat any sugar. Sugar depresses the immune system. It beats out vitamin C and leaves immune cells weekend and unable to fight like champs. Reduce alcohol. It turns to sugar quickly. 4. Increase your vitamin C. I’m taking between 5,000 and 6,000 mg daily. Find your ideal amount by taking to bowel tolerance (loose stool) and then cutting back 500 mg. (See below for a good Vitamin C supplement with flavonoids, making it more absorbable. 5. Wheatgrass juice. Wheatgrass is a major immune builder. If you can’t juice wheatgrass, get SweetWheat. Watercress is also excellent.  It’s a key ingredient in Garden’s Best Superfoods. 6. Zinc. If the immune system can’t stop a virus from replicating, it goes into overdrive and ramps up inflammation, especially in the lungs. This is what causes viral pneumonia. One of the fierce reactions with Covid-19 is an over-reactive immune response causing severe respiratory infection. A study from Ohio State University shows that zinc “helps control infections by gently tapping the brakes on the immune response in a way that prevents out-of-control inflammation that can be damaging and even deadly.”1 One of the symptoms of zinc deficiency is diminished taste and smell. One of the symptoms for some people with Covid-19 is the...

Yummy Dehydrated Recipes

Yummy Dehydrated Recipes

When you dehydrate foods, you don’t kill the life in the food. It’s a similar process to baking but at a much lower temperature (105 to 118 degrees). Dehydrators provide a gentle heat giving food crispness and high flavor while preserving nutritional value. You can even make crackers and breads that are live and nutritious. You can also make snacks and foods in bulk and store them for later. If stored correctly, they can last for months to years depending on the food. Here are some tips for making the best dehydrated foods ever:1.    Marinating many veggies gives them delicious flavor. From kale chips to potato chips, you can marinate your foods for delicious snacks.2.   Slice your veggies thin. For example, if you slice a tomato thinly, you can add Italian seasoning and a basil leaf and you have little “mini pizzas.”3.   Get dehydrator sheets. Investing in Parallax sheets is important because if you don’t, cracker batter and marinades drip right through the trays. In fact, you simply can’t do crackers and bread without them.4.   Dehydration times vary greatly depending on the item and the moisture in the air. But you don’t need to get a dehydrator with a timer. You can’t over dehydrate. You won’t burn anything. It’s not like baking. The important thing is to dehydrate long enough so that your foods are crisp.5.   Set your temperature at 118 degrees or below to preserve the nutrients.6.   Rotate your trays. Even the best dehydrators won’t dehydrate perfectly even. So move the bottom trays to the top. Also, when you are about halfway through the dehydrating process, you can remove the Parallax sheets if you want to speed up the dehydration time.7.   Get a dehydrator with square trays. The round trays aren’t good for crackers and bread. You can spread the batter across the sheet and score. You can’t do that with round trays.For great dehydrated recipes, see The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet  TAKE 10% off The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet and The Juice Lady’s Living Foods Revolution.Both books have great dehydrated recipes.

Zantac in the News

Zantac in the News

Zantac Taken Off Shelves At the beginning of April, the Food and Drug Administration announced that all Zantac products and generic versions of the heartburn medication should be taken off pharmacy shelves immediately. This includes prescription and over-the-counter forms of the antacid. The move comes after months of investigation into certain lots of ranitidine that were found to contain trace amounts of a contaminant called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The World Health Organization has classified the contaminant as a “probable human carcinogen.” HOW TO HEAL GERD AND HEARTBURN NATURALLY Acid reflux (or GERD) is when acid gets pushed up into the esophagus. Once in awhile won’t hurt you, but if it happens often, it burns the inside of the esophagus. Symptoms are known as heartburn, which is a burning feeling in the throat or chest. Researchers estimate that this affects about 7% of our population daily. With heartburn medicine causing cancer dominating the news, it is very important to find natural ways to control this condition.  And it can definitely be controlled  Here’s what you can do. 1.      Don’t overeat. Have you ever noticed that when you overeat, and especially when you mix a variety of different foods together, you experience heartburn?  Eat lighter and choose healthy combinations. 2.     Lose weight.  Belly fat adds pressure in your abdomen that may become so high that the lower esophageal sphincter gets pushed upward, away from the diaphragm’s support. This condition is known as hiatus hernia. This makes people at increased risk for reflux and heartburn. My Sipping Skinny Program can help you lose weight. 3.     Eat a low-carb diet.  This can help relieve reflux. Several studies have shown that a low carb diet does improve refills symptoms. Especially reduce gluten (bread, dough) products and starches such as potatoes and rice. 4.     Avoid alcohol as much as possible. Studies have shown that moderate alcohol intake may even cause reflux symptoms in healthy individuals 5.     Avoid coffee as much as possible. It has been shown that caffeine temporarily weakens the lower esophageal sphincter, increasing the risk of acid reflux. 6.     Avoid raw onions. They can increase heartburn. 7.     Avoid carbonated beverages. They weaken the lower esophageal sphincter. 8.     Avoid too much citrus juice, which can worsen reflux symptoms. 9.     Mix 2 teaspoons of pure apple cider vinegar in 6 oz. of water and drink 15 minutes before a meal. This is possibly one of the most important things you can do to heal acid reflux.  Though not true for everyone, a large percent of acid reflux sufferers actually have low stomach acid which causes the symptoms. If this helps you, then you should take HCLBetaine in the middle of your meal. If it doesn’t help, then you might benefit from mixing a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. 10.   Cabbage juice, with its ulcer-healing factor, works for both indigestion and gastritis. 11.   Fennel juice aids digestion and relieves...

A Liver Cleanse Could Help Reduce Your Waistline.

A Liver Cleanse Could Help Reduce Your Waistline.

A Sluggish Liver Hinders Weight Loss Have you ever wondered why you lose just so much weight and then it stops or you can never quite kick it off to start with?  It could be a sluggish liver holding you back. 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. Cleansing and supporting your liver can help you lose weight. Here’s why. The liver is responsible for producing bile which is used to break down fat in your digestive system and removing toxins from the blood. An unhealthy diet can create an excessive burden on the liver that makes it difficult for it to break down fat and help you digest food properly. But it’s not just poor food choices. Your food choices may be fairly good, but there’s also hundreds of different toxins, pathogens and pollutants we have in our livers.This can lead to  bloating, feeling sluggish, a heavy feeling and weight gain. The liver can become so congested that fat builds in and around it, with pre-fatty and then fatty liver developing. Fat cells then begin to accumulate in the intestinal tract, and eventually, the heart and arteries get saturated. Weight starts to cling around the waist. In order to improve your metabolism, circulation and fat breakdown, it is essential to support a your liver. The juices, smoothies, soups and teas in Sipping Skinny, will help you improve your liver health. Be sure to start your day with 16 0z. of celery juice. This will help to cleanse your liver.
