3 Power Juices for Health

3 Power Juices for Health Kale This mighty green cruciferous vegetable has been shown to lower your risk of getting cancer. It’s the Isothiocyanates that have been identified as having the most benefit. Kale also offers impressive support for detoxification. And it offers 45 different flavonoids that help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. All types of kale are good. Carrots Great for your eyes, carrots are loaded with carotenes that convert to vitamin A as needed. But that’s just the beginning. A 10-year study from the Netherlands found that carrots help prevent cardiovascular disease. The study looked at different colored vegetables and found that orange/yellow vegetable had the greatest impact in preventing cardio problems. And though the carotenes will always be praised for their antioxidant benefits, the new frontier of research has focused on polyacetylenes in carrots. They have been found to inhibit colon cancer cells. The new findings suggest an interaction between carotenoids and polyacetylenes. Celery Celery has emerged as a powerhouse vegetable to fight inflammation. Of significance are some of the non-starchy polysaccharides in celery which seem to have the most anti-inflammatory benefits. Celery offers the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C, flavonoids, dihydrostilbenoids like lunularin as well as furanocoumarins like bergapten and psoralen. As it turns out the humble little celery stick has a lot more to offer than we thought. When you drink freshly-made juice, it is a bit like receiving an intravenous infusion of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, biophotons, and enzymes because they get right into your system without having to be broken down. Drinking your juice first thing in the morning can give you a natural energy boost without resorting to stimulants like coffee. Since the juice is already in an easily digestible form, it can help revive your energy levels within as little as 20 minutes. Additionally, juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. Why? Many people have impaired digestion as a result of making less-than-the-best food choices over many years. This limits your body’s ability to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. Juicing will help to liberate key nutrients from the tough plant cell walls so you will receive most of the nutrition, rather than having it go “down the drain.” Juicing also allows you to add a wider variety of vegetables in your diet. Many people eat the same vegetable salads or side dishes every day. This violates the principle of regular food rotation and increases your chance of developing an allergy to a certain food. Plus, it limits the number of different phytochemicals in your diet, as each vegetable will offer unique benefits. With juicing, you can juice a wide variety of vegetables that you may not normally enjoy eating whole. On days when you don’t have time to juice, take Garden’s Best Juice Powder. Take 10% OFF with code GB10.   Today’s Recipe Energy Power Juice 4 carrots, tops removed (carrot greens are toxic) 3 ribs of celery, with leaves 3 kale leaves 1 cucumber 1/2 green apple 1-inch turmeric root (optional) Juice all ingredients, stir, and...

Wheatgrass Juice Works Wonders! Just go online and google wheatgrass juice cures. Amazing stores of people healed of cancer pop up all over the place. But that’s not all. Take a look at the conditions wheatgrass juice can help. . . and there’s so much more.

I also eat a raw plant-based diet. When I came to the retreat, I had chronic multiple health problems. You were gracious enough to give me a scholarship so I could attend. Thank you so much for that. You and Father John changed my life immensely. I wanted to let you know I no longer have fibromyalgia. Last year was the first fall and winter that I didn’t suffer from immense pain and chronic fatigue. Also for the first time in years, I lowered my liver enzymes and blood sugar to where I no longer need medication. I have healed my body through nutrition.

Get Thicker Hair and Stronger Nails

Get Thicker Hair and Stronger Nails

5 Ways to Get Thicker Hair and Stronger Nails 1. Get enough protein. If you want thick hair and strong nails, it’s all about getting enough protein (and other nutrients) along with digesting that protein efficiently. Your hair needs to produce keratin—a protein that makes hair strong. If you don’t get enough protein or if you don’t digest the protein well, hair will go into a “resting phase,” which causes noticeable hair loss. You can add protein powder to your green smoothies or juice. 2. Digest protein well; get enzymes. Systemic enzymes benefit your entire system. But specifically the enzymes I recommend help your body break down undigested proteins that circulate in the system. More digested protein means more availability for your hair and nails. These enzymes have actually helped me grow hair back. There was a time when my hair really thinned out. When I discovered these enzymes, my hair started growing and the hair I had also got thicker and stronger. I wouldn’t be without Ness #4 and # 16. They are different than other enzymes I’ve taken with meals, which did nothing to help my hair get thicker or my nails stronger. Ness enzymes are taken after a meal and they clean up undigested proteins floating around in your system. But you don’t take them according to directions, which doesn’t really do much. I did an internship with a holistic MD, who used a special protocol. I’ll include it for you when you order the enzymes. 3. Iron. Iron deficiency can cause thin hair and spoon-shaped nails. 4. Magnesium. This mineral is important for hair and nails. It you have vertical ridges in your nails, you may be magnesium deficient. You may want to get Magnesium Citrate. 5 Silicon, which is rich in cucumbers, is vital to increasing circulation to the scalp, and that is good for hair growth. 6. Zinc is involved in making proteins like those in your hair and nails. A zinc deficiency can cause white spots on your...

Reduce Swelling, Pain, Acne, Allergies, and Headache

Reduce Swelling, Pain, Acne, Allergies, and Headache The lymphatic system is the body’s drainage system which consists of glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus gland, and tonsils. It has been referred to as the “garbage collection system” of the body. Its job is to cleanse our cells by shuttling away excess waste products such as fluids, fats, and toxins from our tissues where it can eventually be filtered out by the liver and kidneys. The lymphatic system carries disease-fighting white blood cells in a colorless fluid throughout your body, safely scooping up toxins and waste products and depositing them to over 600 lymph nodes and glands for filtering and removal. The problem is that the lymphatic system has no pump like the heart. It depends on exercise to move keep things moving. Many people live such sedentary lives that their lymphatic systems don’t get the proper movement. Lymph can stagnate and problems can arise. If your pipes get clogged you, you clean out the drains. The same should go for us and our lymphatic system. Get Your Lymphatic System Ready For Winter It’s about time to winterize the sprinkler system. How about “winterizing your body?” We all need to get ready for the fall and winter seasons.  When you cut your finger or feel a flu-bug coming on, it’s your hard-working lymphatic system that rushes to the rescue with healthy white blood cells to fight the foreign invaders and neutralize their harmful effects. Knowing this, you can see why giving your lymphatic system a healthy cleansing is so important to your overall health. Symptoms of Lymphatic System Congestion Rings get tight on your fingers Puffy face; swollen eyes Soreness and/or stiffness in the morning Feeling tired  Bloating Itchy skin Water Retention Breast swelling or soreness with each cycle Dry skin Brain fog Cold hands and feet Benefits of Cleansing Your Lymph System When you detox the lymph system, you can experience a reduction in swelling, rejuvenation of tissue, reduction in pain, fibromyalgia healing, improvement of venous conditions, relief of chronic fatigue, improvement in sinusitis, acne and allergies, headaches relief, constipation improves, insomnia relief, improved fertility, correction of cellulite and stress relief. Here are some things you can do for your lymphatic system:  Best Foods for Your Lymphatic System Citrus Berries Greens Sunflower and pumpkin seeds Chia, hemp and flax Herbs and spices Seaweed and algae Detox Your Body Join my 30-Day Detox. Week 3 of this 4-week program is the Lymphatic Cleanse and the Kidney-Bladder Cleanse. I highly recommend that you order the Lymphatic Rejuvenator tincture and the Kidney-Bladder Rejuvenator to go with that program. You will also get the recipe for the Lymph Node Detox Soup. Lymphasizer (Healthy Swinger) The Lymphasizer, also known as the healthy swinger, is an excellent aid to your lymphatic detoxification because it will actively move the lymph and blood through the body when you lie down on it. Dr. Shizuo Inoue developed this machine after observing the rhythmic, side-to-side movement of healthy, well-toned fish. This type of machine creates a wavelike motion up and down the spine as it gently massages the body and oxygenates muscles, tissues, and cells. It moves the lymph through the lymphatic vessels so it can efficiently deliver its load of toxins to the organs of elimination. It is...
