All the Best from the Garden

Garden’s Best Juice Powder My superfoods juice powder formula is very unique. My husband thinks it’s the best juice powder he’s ever tasted. You can just mix it in water or add it to juice or a smoothie. My husband mixes it in almond milk and thinks it tastes like a shake. This is what you get: 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. We are offering 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. Watercress 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 relief. It’s energizing, but not stimulating. It is a great support to the thyroid and adrenal glands. It is a quintessential adaptogen in that it works as well as all the adaptogens combined. (An adaptogen is a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes.) It is a powerful root to consume. Ginger and Turmeric are related and important for healthy inflammatory response and digestion. They are both absolutely amazing when it comes to their ability to support joint comfort and flexibility, healthy inflammation responses and digestion. Turmeric is...

Enzymes for Beautiful Hair

4 Tips that Help Your Hair  A number of years ago my hair started falling out. It fell and fell until I had about half the hair left that I’d started with. I learned a lot about getting one’s hair back—not only growing back but getting stronger as well so it doesn’t break easily. I”m excited to share some tips with you that helped me with my hair back. 1.     Take Ness formula enzymes. Ness #4 and 16 are the best enzymes I’ve found to help grow hair and nails. They help digest undigested proteins when you take them after a meal. When you digest proteins well, your hair grows and thickens and your nails grow better. Not only did my hair start growing back when I took Ness formula, it got thicker. 2.     Watercress for your hair. Watercress contains plenty of zinc as well as sulfur, which helps to keep away bacterial infections from hair and scalp. It also helps to moisturize and condition the hair. It acts as a very good conditioner and improves the quality as well as the quantity of the hair. Garden’s Best Superfoods Juice Powder has watercress juice powder. 3.     Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fats not only help prevent hair loss and breakage, they encourage healthy, lush hair and the growth of new hair. I recommend Nordic Arctic Omega 3 cod liver oil. Since I started taking that brand of cod liver oil, my hair has been shinier and silkier. 4.     Avoid sweets. My hair started falling out when I started drinking wine. It was too much sugar. I cut out all wine and sweets, along with most starchy carbs, which made a huge...

Do You Have Low Thyroid?

Do You Have Low Thyroid?

What Can You Do About It? I’ve never had low thyroid problems until just recently when my adrenals became very stressed. The thyroid and adrenals are closely associated so my thyroid has shown a little distress. A recent test showed it’s slightly low. I’m working on both. And it seems that I’m not alone. According to the United States National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, an estimated 27 million Americans suffer from thyroid disease and 13 million people go undiagnosed.  Besides stress, the following are the most common causes of thyroid problems: Deficiencies of iodine and selenium. Food sensitivities to gluten and A1 Casein (dairy) allergyToxins—especially heavy metals and radiation exposureHormone imbalances—cortisol too high from stress, too many carbs, not enough fat in the diet Symptoms of low thyroid DepressionPoor memoryAbsentmindednessFeeling of deep gloom for no apparent reasonIrritability for no apparent reasonChronic fatigue and weaknessWeight gain or difficulty losing weightHair loss or coarse, dry hairDry, rough skinIntolerance to coldAbnormal menstrual cyclesDecreased sex driveInability to remember thingsConstipationMuscle aches and crampsFluid retention or puffiness How To Improve Thyroid Function  1.     Avoid all gluten and dairy. These foods can cause leaky gut syndrome which can contribute to inflammation of the thyroid gland. Only consume dairy from goats or sheep. 2.     Avoid BPA. Avoid all plastics with BPA. 3.     Increase your iodine if you are low. Take kelp tablets or liquid iodine. Watercress is one of the best vegetable sources of iodine. Studies show that watercress helps the thyroid. 4.     Increase selenium. Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium. Take 200 mg of Selenium a day. I recommend Pure Encapsulations. 5.     Take CoQ100. I recommend Thorne. Take 200 mg per day. 6.     Do a heavy metal detox. You can use a combination of Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Chlorella, and Cilantro. 7.     Ashwagandha can help reduce stress and support the adrenals and thyroid. See Vitality Renew. 8.     Avoid sugar, refined carbs and starches. 9.     Join my weight loss program The Watercress Diet. Get my book The Juice Lady’s Remedies for Thyroid Disorders along with the supplement Thyrocsin Juices that Help the Thyroid They are good sources of iron, B vitamins (needed for hormone creation), Vitamins C and D, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, and magnesium.

Choose RED for HEALTH

Choose RED for HEALTH

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, purple cabbage 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 or cancer in the lymph nodes. 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. You might want to get my e-book The Cellulite Cure. Symptoms That You May Have Lymphatic Congestion Rings are tight on your fingersSoreness and/or stiffness in the morningTired/fatiguedBloating/water retentionSkin itchesWeight gain, especially around the mid-sectionSwollen glandsImpaired immunityBrain fogBreast swelling or soreness with each cycleDry skinMild rash or acneMild headachesElevated histamine and irritation due to environmental allergensOccasional 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 and 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 tincture or get the Internal Cleanse Kit with the 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...
