What You EAT (and drink) Can Help Fight Depression

Depression Fighting Juices and Foods I received a call this week from a friend whose close friend committed suicide recently. His friend had been depressed and had just started taking medication for the depression. Anthony Bourdain suffered from depression. So did Kate Spade. We’ve seen a rash of suicides lately that were connected with depression. Many people suffer from a depressive disorder and live in the shadows of their pain because they don’t want to get the stigma of having any kind of mental problem. It’s nothing to be embarrassed by or ashamed of. Approximately 21.5 million Americans suffer from depression.  There is help naturally. I’m not saying diet is everything. Certainly not. There are inner wounds that need healing. But one thing I’ve learned through the years is that when you feel truly healthy, you’re not as prone to depression. You’re more resilient. You can work on things that need attention in your soul. To truly be well we need to work on our whole person—body, soul and spirit to heal the pain and step out of depression into life. But that said, I’ve had numerous people tell me their depression left like fog clearing in the morning when they began my juice diet program or did a cleanse like my 30 Day Detox. I want to help you with the diet that fights depression. Here are the things to choose to eat and drink and things to avoid to heal your brain and your pain. Avoid inflammatory foods. A study published in March 2015 in JAMA Psychiatry,showed that severe depression has been linked with brain inflammation. The most inflammatory foods are sugar, artificial sweeteners, gluten, dairy, alcohol, soda pop, and foods with preservatives and other chemicals. These foods ring the alarm bell in your limbic system. We need plenty of anti-inflammatory foods. Chose the following foods often and get a copy of my book The Anti-Inflammatory Diet. 1. Dark Leafy Greens— juice them up or add them to smoothies. 2. Omega-3 fatty acids (fatty fish, walnuts, flax, cod liver oil); sunflower seeds (also rich in Vit D) 3. Avocado—oleic acid, known as brain fat 4. Berries—high antioxidant In a study published in the Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, patients were treated for two years with antioxidants or placebos. After two years those who were treated with antioxidants had a significantly lower depression score. Antioxidants are like DNA repairmen. 5. Tomatoes are depression fighters; rich in folate and alpha-lipoic acid There’s some interesting research published in the Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience that  show an elevated incidence of folate deficiency in patients with depression. 6. Fiber is mood stabilizing. I highly recommend Toxin Absorber fiber packets. Better yet, get the complete Colon Cleanse. 7. Turmeric and ginger. Studies have proven the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric and ginger. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19594223/) Get fresh turmeric and ginger add a little chunk of each to al your juices.

Detox x 4 – Time for Your Summer Detox!

Detox x 4 – Time for Your Summer Detox!

Time for Your Summer Detox! It’s highly beneficial to detox with the change of each season. Since we’re just a few weeks into the summer season, this is a great time to clean out the winter and spring excesses, lose a few pounds and get your sparkle back. Detoxing has a big effect on your mood!  Often people get more clarity, feel more energetic, are less stressed and revitalized after cleansing. This can give you a more positive outlook on life and the inspiration to live a healthier lifestyle. While detoxing helps you clean out excess waste from your body, it also helps you release emotions and thoughts that you might have been storing as well. Detoxing is a great way to let go of things that have been bothering you and keeping you stuck emotionally. If you detoxed last year, that’s not enough to carry you to the end of this decade or even through this year. It’s like changing the oil filter, air filter and oil in your car. You can’t say you did that last year and now it should be good for a few years. Time and miles roll on and the need for an oil change and tune-up come around too. The same applies to your body. It’s time for your tune up your body. You could get a new car if you don’t take good care of the one you have. But you can’t get a new body. This is it. You get one for the journey. Detoxing helps you take care of it. If you detox and nourish your colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic system, you’ll have a much better chance of staying healthy right through the winter months, pushing those winter blues and flu away and preventing disease.  The lymphatic system carries waste from your body. It also controls and regulates your immune system.  When this system becomes sluggish, you may experience symptoms like aches and pains, fluid retention, swelling, allergies, fatigue, constipation, colds and weakened immunity.  Sign up now for the 30-Day Detox and get your Internal Cleanse Kit with the Free Colon Cleanse Kit.  The kit makes your program far more effective. If you want to improve your lymphatic system cleansing, get the Lymphasizer. 10 Reasons to Detox Now Lose weight Gain a sense of well-being Get rid of toxins Prevent chronic disease or heal your body of disease Strengthen your immune system Increase your energy Slow the aging process* Mental clarity Emotional balance Healthier skin *I want to share my personal story on the anti-aging effects of detoxing. I just got my new driver’s license. I held it beside my license from 6 years ago. I look younger in this current picture. My husband was shocked. Driver’s license pictures are not known to be one bit flattering so it certainly wasn’t good photography that made me look younger. I’ve been doing more detoxing and juicing. It pays off.”  Cherie Liver Detox Juice Cocktail One of the unique cleansing properties of arugula is that it counteracts the destructive effects of heavy metals, particularly in the liver. A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, it is rich in detoxifying antioxidants. 1 cucumber, peeled if not organic 1 handful arugula 1/2 cup blueberries 1/2 green apple 1/4 cup...

The Power of Juice Powder

Posted by on Jul 9, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The Power of Juice Powder

The Juice Powder with POWER! I will always recommend and promote fresh juice as the best possible nutrition you can get. But I’m realistic. We can’t always juice. And many people find that they can’t or just don’t juice a lot of the time. That’s where juice powder can make a HUGE difference. With excellent processing, you will get most of the nutrients. Just mix it in water, juice, plant milk or smoothie. My husband LOVES Genesis Superfoods Juice Powder mixed in almond milk. He thinks it tastes like a super delicious smoothie. And it’s so easy. Pour a glass of almond milk and stir in the juice powder. It’s that easy. My superfoods juice powder formula is very unique. My husband thinks it’s the best juice powder he’s ever tasted. Check it out. All our organic ingredients are from perennial plants—plants that would have been found in the Garden of Eden. They were not plants that needed to be cultivated by planting seeds and tilling the soil but rather plants that came up each year and yielded food. Even down to the fermentation and the perennial plant ingredients, we are attempting to stay very true to the Garden’s Best message, which is to offer you the very best super juice food available.  Following are the main ingredients and what they do for you: Alfalfa grass juice Alfalfa is believed to be the father of foods. Alfalfa is incredible in terms of its ability to draw nutrients from deep in the earth up to its leaves and flowers. Alfalfa roots go very, very deep; they can even break up rocks. They turn inorganic minerals into organic nutrients your body can absorb. Fruits Our fruit blend consists of apple, strawberry, raspberry and blueberry. These fruits provide antioxidants, fiber (pectin), which is great to cleanse and detoxify the body. These are excellent sources of pigments that contribute to the body’s cellular defenses.  Acacia, which is in the powder only, is one of the powerful superfoods that has been studied recently. This is an example of a tree that would have been potentially in the Garden of Eden as well, because it is grown in that region. Acacia is a great source of soluble fiber. It is what you’d call a whole food fiber in that it is not extracted or isolated or separated. It dissolves very easily. It is a non-bloating, non-digestive disturbing food. Veggies Watercress is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, along with broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and collards. However, watercress is unique in that it is shown in studies to be very helpful for thyroid health. If you’re consuming broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts, and you’ve are hypothyroid, it’s not clear if that’s actually helping or harming you. It has been shown in studies to help you lose weight as well as have anti-aging properties helping you look younger. Watercress is the most well-rounded cruciferous vegetable and it helps your thyroid. It helps to support liver health and detoxify the body. It also has unique immune supportive properties. Watercress is to cruciferous vegetables what ashwagandha is to other adaptogens. Watercress is the top cruciferous vegetable. If you taste it, it absolutely is apparent how much power it packs. It really is amazing. Herbs and Spices Ashwagandha is one of the supreme herbs used in India for brain health and stress...

Detox the Sludge, Lose Belly Fat, and Energize Your Body

Detox the Sludge, Lose Belly Fat, and Energize Your Body

Detox the Sludge, Lose Belly Fat, and Energize Your Body Are you feeling a little out of sorts, bloated, or tired? Want to get your summer body back? Most people lose 5 to 10 pounds with my 30-Day Detox. Summer is the perfect time for a detox, weight loss, and an energy reset. As you cleanse your digestive system, you’ll get rid of colon sludge that’s been building up for months or maybe years. By cleaning out your digestive tract, you’ll get rid of gas, bloating and mucoid plaque. As your digestion improves, you’ll absorb more nutrients because the majority of our nutrients are absorbed in the upper intestinal tract. As you improve the way you process food, you’ll gain more energy, better sleep, and a happier mood. If you have parasites, they’re stealing some of your best nutrients causing you to be hungrier and more tired. They also release mucous that contributes to body congestion. I thought sinus problems with drainage was something I just had to live with until I did a series of parasite cleanses. What a difference the parasite cleansing made. That problem is gone—COMPLETELY GONE. (The parasite cleanse is part of week 2 of 30-day detox.) Purify your blood and your skin will glow more. Everything will hum along like you’ve just had an “oil change.” And don’t forget your lymphatic system and lungs. The lymphatics are your garbage collection system. It’s imperative that you cleanse this system. And how about your lungs? They are also important organs of elimination that need cleansing with herbs that rejuvenate them. The lymphatic system cleanse and kidney/bladder cleanse are the focus of week 3. And the lung and skin and blood cleanse are the focus of week 4. I highly recommend that you get the Internal Cleanse Kit with the Free Colon Cleanse Kit because it has the parasite cleanse and the supplements for each of the organs and systems mentioned here. How would you like to be looking like you just returned from a week at a spa? You can. While many people are struggling with health or weight loss, you can be sailing into super health with a strong immune system and a boatload of energy. Detoxing Hits the Reset Button When you get your “house” cleaned out, you’ll feel like a new person. You’ll also look better—more refreshed. Do you ever get up in the morning feeling tired and achy, but after a hot shower, you feel much better? That’s a quick reset. Cleansing is a super reset for your entire system. If you want to turn things around quickly in your body and your life, this is your opportunity for the best change you could imagine. So out with the junk and in with the pure juices and healthy foods along with the cleansing herbs. Get Your Fuel System Cleaned Out and Reach Your Goals! Cleanse your pathways of elimination and you’ll see the weight loss you want and the health that propels you into your future. What do you need to change in your life to achieve them? Good health, abundant energy, and mental focus are among the things you’ll need to see a realization of those goals. When we’re sick and tired, we can’t get much done. But when we feel...
