Boost Your Immune System

Purify Your Blood When you cleanse your blood, your body will begin to work more optimally. Blood is vital in conveying nutrients and oxygen to cells. If we have impurities and toxins in our blood, they will get carried to the cells. Organs get congested when fed with dirty, impure blood.  Many conditions people struggle with could be improved with a cleanse program. When you cleanse the blood, you can benefit in the following ways: 1.  Improved digestion2.  Clear, softer skin3.  Improved health4.  Stronger immune system5.  Liver function improved The last time I did a Blood and Skin Cleanse, I noticed an odd sensation in the upper left corner of my back. It felt like some things were wiggling around.  I felt it for most of the week. What was that, I kept wondering? An acquaintance who had done missions work in Ethiopia said she had had those kinds of sensations many times because she had gotten parasites numerous times while there. It became apparent to me that the Blood and Skin Detox Tincture I was taking was killing a group of parasites. When you detoxify the blood, you remove parasites toxins, fungus, bacteria, and viruses. HOW TO CLEANSE YOUR BLOOD Use an herbal blood detox to eliminate systemic pathogens, remove toxic residues from the blood, stimulate the lymphatic system (essential for keeping your blood clean), and break down rogue cells to minimizing the chances of malignant growths taking root in your body.  The Blood and Skin Herbal Tincture can literally drive out the bad things from your blood. In Addition to the Herbs             Drink purified water. To make sure you get enough water, take your weight, and divide it in half.  This is the number of ounces you should drink per day. Eat a detox diet.                    A  body cleansing diet provides cellular nutrition to your trillions of cells. All cells require quality protein, essential fatty acids, and plenty of fresh vegetables and vegetable juices, raw fruits, beans, and ancient grains. Move the lymphatic system. Exercise and massage move the lymph.  Also, the Lymphasizer machine is excellent in keeping the lymphatic system moving. I’ve also discovered the importance of dry brushing.  Keep a natural bristle brush where you can see it and brush your body, always moving toward your heart, before you shower. Sweat.                                   Sweat for waste elimination. Besides daily physical activity, saunas and warm baths with Epsom salts or sea salt are very helpful to remove toxins.

Anti-Inflammatory Juices

Anti-Inflammatory Juices

Anti-Inflammatory Juices Do you suffer from inflammation somewhere in your body? If you have any health condition you’re dealing with, there’s inflammation present. But here’s another reason you want to know how to deal with inflammation. Heart damage has recently emerged as yet another grim outcome in the COVID virus’s possible complications. A report from the early days of the epidemic described the extent of cardiac injury among 41 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China: Five, or 12 percent, had signs of cardiovascular damage. The propensity of certain viruses to attack the heart muscle and cause viral myocarditis is well known. The most notorious viral offender has been the Coxsackie B virus.  The cardiac involvement in COVID-19 is yet another striking example of the widespread effects of inflammation on multiple organs and systems. Inflammation is a critical defense response during infection, but it has a dark side. Infections can set off a cascade of immune signals that affect various organs.(https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2020/04/covid-19s-consequences-for-the-heart/} This said it’s highly important to eat an anti-inflammatory diet, especially now. (See my book The Anti-Inflammatory Diet.) It is also critical if you should get sick, to go on an anti-inflammatory program. Here are some super juices to help you fight inflammation and heal more quickly from any condition. •    Carrot juice. Carrot juice provides anti-inflammatory benefits that were significant even when compared to anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and Celebrex. •    Parsley juice. Parsley contains luteolin—a flavonoid that has been shown to combine with highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules (oxygen radicals) and to help prevent oxygen-based damage to cells. This means a reduction in inflammation.•     Juice more of these foods as well: AsparagusRadishTurnipsGingerTurmericLeafy greens such as kale, chard, spinach, and watercressBok choyFennelCelery (drink 8 to 16 ounces a day) It helps you sleep well, which is very important in your recovery.BeetsBroccoli; juice the stems and steam the floretsBlueberries ALSO, QUERCETIN HELPS FIGHT INFLAMMATION.

Unclog Your Lymphatic System!

Unclog Your Lymphatic System!

Fatigue, Sinusitis, Sore Throats, Colds, Water Retention and More… Like your home plumbing, your lymphatic system needs to stay unclogged and flowing well for it to work properly. Stress and digestive imbalances are two major causes of lymphatic congestion that impair your ability to cleanse efficiently. When the lymph becomes stagnant and congested, wastes and toxins begin to build up. This can lead to weak immunity and a wide variety of health issues like the following: FatigueBloating and constipationWater retentionStiffness, especially in the morningBrain fogItchy and dry skinCelluliteStubborn weight gainChronic sinusitis, sore throats, colds, and ear issuesBreast swelling with the menstrual cycleSwollen glandsCold hands and feetPuffy face, swollen eyes, bags under eyes The lymphatic system is directly stimulated by fibers of the sympathetic nervous system, which is activated as part of the stress response. Studies in mice show that chronic stress can even remodel lymphatic vasculature and lead to the spread of cancer. A healthy intestinal lymphatic system is necessary for maintaining balanced gut bacteria and upholding the integrity of the intestinal lining. Decongesting your lymph system may be a key to rejuvenation and rebalancing of your body. Here’s what you can do to cleanse your lymph system: 1. Eat Raw, Red Fruits and Veggies Pomegranates, cherries, cranberries, and beets help to keep the lymph moving freely. Raw beets consumed as fresh juice or grated for salads. Beets are powerful lymphatic cleansers as they thin the bile and help fat digestion. They also help scrub the intestinal villi where the lymphatic vessels originate to keep the lymph flowing. 2. Take the Lymph Rejuvenator Tincture. Contains 10 herbs to support your lymphatic system and enhance its detoxifying and immune-boosting functions. 3. Lymphasizer. This machine supports lymph drainage (as documented in Australian clinical trials), internal massage, physical and mental release from tension, fatigue and stress, the promotion of deeper, improved breathing, balance of the autonomic nervous system and relaxation. Recipe Natural Diuretic Cocktail  Serves 1 1 medium vine-ripened tomato1/2 small or medium lemon, washed, or peeled if not organic1 small handful parsley, rinsed1 organic cucumber, scrubbed well4 asparagus stems, washed Cut produce to fit your juicer’s feed tube.

PLANT POWER FACIAL

Healing Your Complexion with Wheatgrass Juice Powder I had a small red spot on my face that just wouldn’t go away. I tried a lot of things but it wasn’t diminishing. I finally decided to make a wheatgrass paste by adding a drop of water to some wheatgrass juice powder. This is the second time I’ve put it on that spot.  Each time, it’s diminished some and looks lighter.  It’s healing my skin. A Healing Plant Wheatgrass is a great source of chlorophyll that you can use for internal and external use. It offers over 100 elements essential to optimal health. This green grass is both antibacterial and antiseptic expediting the healing process of bodily organs including the largest of them— your skin. According to the American Journal of Surgery (1940), the chlorophyll content in wheatgrass repairs damaged epidermal tissue, inhibits acne breakouts, and diminishes blemishes and scars when included as part of a balanced diet. Ingesting wheatgrass on a regular basis actually clears up symptoms associated with eczema and psoriasis as it cleanses the body throughout. More Wheatgrass Benefits to Consider Wheatgrass is high in antioxidants preventing damage from free radicals including environmental toxins and UV exposure. Antioxidants are known to be anti-aging as they repair or prevent skin damage. Wheatgrass can be taken as a supplement in powder, capsule or juice form and it can be topically used to treat skin for a more radiant complexion. Wheatgrass Facial for Improved Complexion Your skin will absorb essential vitamins that are the mainstay of many skincare products, nutrients, and minerals that will feed your skin. With that in mind, the next time you step out for an organic wheatgrass juice, save some for your home facial. Mix the juice with either organic egg whites (for oily skin) or egg yolk (for dry skin) or use wheatgrass juice powder. Apply the mixture to a cleansed face for 20 minutes and rinse. Or just mix wheatgrass juice powder with a little water and apply. With the multitude of benefits offered in wheatgrass, you will rediscover nourished skin with radiance. RecipeWheatgrass Light Wheatgrass juice is most effective when consumed by itself on an empty stomach. But if you just can’t get it down, here’s a recipe that could help. 1 green apple, washed1 handful wheatgrass, rinsed2-3 sprigs mint, rinsed (optional)1/2 lemon, washed or peeled if not organic Cut produce to fit your juicer’s feed tube.  Start with apple and juice all ingredients and stir.  Pour into a glass and drink as soon as...

Healthy Kidneys…

Healthy Kidneys…

Kidneys and Dark Circles Under Eyes If your kidneys aren’t being nourished well it results in poor blood flow in and out of the kidneys.  Strong, well-nourished kidneys are needed to support good blood flow and good health. Symptoms of Kidney Insufficiency Chinese medicine considers dark circles as a sign of weakness in the kidneys. Kidney weakness is due to exhaustion and overstrain coupled with lack of rest and relaxation. Since the kidney network in Chinese medicine governs the hormonal system, it affects the pigment melanin. It is said that unhealthy and depleted kidneys produce pigment deposits under the skin around the eyes and other parts of the face. (https://smmirror.com/2008/11/dr-maos-secrets-of-longevity-under-eye-dark-circles/) Dry skin, dry eyes, dark circles under the eyes, vaginal dryness for women, scanty urine, a pale face with flushed red cheeks, a red peeled tongue, a rapid pulse, fatigue, irritability, afternoon heat, night sweats, and hot flashes are some of the symptoms of poorly functioning kidneys. Emotional or mental signs can include agitation or even panic attacks, feeling tired but wired, a sense of floating, or of being drained.
