GREEN Your Way to Weight Loss

4 Green Juices for Weight Loss Celery juice. Juice up celery to help your body lose excess water. It contains essential oils limonene and selinene, which give celery diuretic properties. Celery also helps to cleanse the body—get rid of toxins and you lose weight easier. For extra weight loss help, combine celery and lemon, another natural diuretic. As an added bonus, it can help prevent stomach and colon cancer. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to control blood pressure. Watercress juice. This cruciferous vegetable can help heal the thyroid and prevent weight gain. Consuming foods higher in iodine like kelp and watercress, and ensuring that you get enough B-complex vitamins and minerals like selenium (Brazil nuts are high), copper and zinc are also important. Iodine is the number one healer of under-active thyroids, and getting it from natural sources is important. Parsley juice. Scientific studies show this nutrient-rich little herb is a natural diuretic. It’s also one of your best sources of vitamin C. Studies show vitamin C helps you lose weight. One lady said, “Parsley is a miracle! On Thursday I was 72 kg, and two days later – five pounds less! [Got rid of] the accumulated liquid [in] my body. I feel great light.” Wheatgrass juice. 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 altogether. That makes it much easier to eat less and say no to fattening foods. If you can’t find fresh wheatgrass juice, get the powdered...

7 Benefits of Wheatgrass Juice

Wheatgrass Juice – How Do We Love You? Let Us Count the Ways1 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. 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. 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. 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. Lowers  blood pressure. Wheatgrass helps to open up blood vessels and increases blood flow. 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. 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.   Wheatgrass Sale 15% OFF Use Code SWEET15 at checkout. Buy...

Sipping Skinny! Get Ready for Summer

Sipping Skinny! Get Ready for Summer

You CAN be Ready for Summer!!! My new book Sipping Skinny is just about here. (You can place an advanced order on Amazon; officially out June 1.)  And so is summer! Get ready for summer fun— vacations, barbecues, reunions, picnics, weddings and days by the pool or at the beach.  You can sip the pounds away RIGHT NOW so you will be happy in those shorts, swimsuits, and sleeveless shirts. I want to share some excerpts from Sipping Skinny. You’ll see why this program works and why it’s so popular. “Liquid dieting with fresh, raw vegetable and fruit juices, smoothies, soups, and broths along with various flavored waters exponentially increases the amount of nutrition you can give your body at any time and boosts your metabolism. When you extract the nutrient-dense liquid from vegetables and fruit in their fresh, raw state, or puree the vegetables and fruit into a liquid, you are condensing virtually all the nutrition they contain into an easily consumable, easily digestible, and highly absorbable food. So when you follow the Sipping Skinny [Weight Loss] Program, you will basically be delivering all those nourishing, healing, energy-boosting vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, biophotons, and enzymes directly into your cells. And let me tell you, your cells will love it! In fact, the more nutrient-depleted and toxic a body is, the more the body’s cells will gobble up those precious nutrients and beg for more. Another reason liquid dieting with vegetables and fruit yields such superior results is it gives the digestive system the opportunity to rest. The digestive system is constantly working, breaking down food, shuttling off nutrients to where they are needed in the body, converting excess glucose to fat and fat to glucose. The digestive system constantly requires energy to continue working. When you follow a liquid diet like Sipping Skinny, your digestive system doesn’t have much of a job to do. Your food has already been broken down mechanically by a juicer or blender into a bioavailable form. As you drink your juice, smoothie, broth, or soup, it quickly slides down through the digestive system, and then the nutrients get absorbed through the walls of the small intestines into the bloodstream. In as little as twenty minutes from consuming your liquid meal, all those detoxifying, life-giving nutrients are already feeding your cells. This means the energy that previously would go to your digestive system so it could do its job can now be reallocated to other parts of the body in need of repair and rejuvenation. This means detoxifying, healing, and ultimately weight loss. The third main reason you want to choose Sipping Skinny when it comes to liquid diets is because of two letters: pH. Think back to high school chemistry class for a second. Remember that pH refers to how acidic or alkaline a substance is. The scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, while anything below 7.0 is acidic. The human body is happiest when its blood is slightly alkaline, between 7.35 and 7.45, but unfortunately, many people favor eating more acid-producing foods than alkaline-forming foods. Sipping Skinny to the rescue! At this point, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that some of the most alkaline foods you can eat include vegetables and fruit; therefore, fresh, raw vegetable and fruit...

Hormone Imbalance?

Think RED!

Think RED!

Red Juices for Lymphatic System, Adrenals, Kidneys and Heart The color red (and purple) is associated with the adrenal glands, the lymphatic system and the kidneys. Red foods also nourish the heart. When you think of red produce (tomatoes, berries, cherries, pomegranate, beets and cranberries), the nutrient that stands out is lycopene, which is a carotenoid that is a powerful antioxidant associated with reduced cancer risk,  especially prostate cancer. It is also associated with reduced risk of heart attacks. Many red fruits and vegetables are also rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, folate, and flavonoids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. Cranberries are a good source of tannins, which prevent bacteria from sticking to cells; hence they are important in fighting infections. They are the reason cranberry juice is a standard treatment for bladder infections. I want to focus in on the lymphatic system in today’s newsletter because it’s a system we don’t think much about. Rarely does anyone in the medical field bring it up unless there’s a problem such as lymphoma. But lymphatic system health is something we should all be aware of and work to maintain. The lymphatic system is a drainage system with a network of fluid, organs and vessels that removes cellular debris, proteins, foreign bodies, bacteria, viruses, toxins, and excess fluid from tissue spaces. Since it has no pump like the heart, the lymphatic system can become congested, especially with a sedentary lifestyle, because it is exercise that keeps it moving. It can get clogged up and you’ll never know it until something gets your attention with a huge wake-up call. A clogged lymphatic system can weaken your immune system and stress your other pathways of elimination. It can contribute to everything from cellulite to cancer. See my e-book The Cellulite Cure. Symptoms that You May Have Lymphatic Congestion Rings are tight on your fingers Soreness and/or stiffness in the morning Tired/fatigued Bloating/water retention Skin itches Weight gain, especially around the mid-section Swollen glands Impaired immunity Brain fog Breast swelling or soreness with each cycle Dry skin Mild rash or acne Mild headaches Elevated histamine and irritation due to environmental allergens Occasional constipation, diarrhea and/or mucus in the stool If you have any of these symptoms, or even if you don’t, I recommend a lymphatic system cleanse. (We don’t usually wait to change the oil in our car until we have symptoms.) In addition to red juices, which are very supportive of the lymphatic system, increase your water intake to a minimum of 8 glasses of purified water a day. Drink at least 3 glasses of veggie juice daily; make some of that red juice. Start your day with warm water and some lemon with a dash of cayenne pepper. Get the Lymph Rejuvenator or get the Internal Cleanse Kit with the free Colon Cleanse Kit. This has the Lymph Rejuvenator in the kit. I also recommend that you check out the Lymphasizer (Swing Machine). It is very effective at moving the lymph.   Today’s Juice Recipe Red Sunrise Drinking beet juice may help to lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. One study found that drinking one glass of beet juice lowered systolic blood pressure by an average of 4–5 points. 1 green apple 1/2 small beet with leaves 1 cucumber, peeled...
