Acid Reflux

Health Tips for Acid Reflux

As we age, our stomach acid production declines.  Stomach acid is necessary for digestion.

Most indigestion symptoms occur when stomach acid refluxes (squirts) back up into the esophagus. This causes it to burn.  As a result, people often take antacids, which do stop the burning. But instead of giving your body what it needs to heal, it just blocks the production of stomach acid.

Why Make Nut Milk?

Why Make Nut Milk?

Brain Happy Nut Milk Made Healthy!

Many people are turning to nut milks instead of dairy because there is a protein in dairy that can cause inflammation and digestive problems for some people. Plus, nut milk is high in brain-healthy mono and polyunsaturated fats along with key nutrients like magnesium, copper, and vitamins E and B6, which are not found in cow’s milk.

The Brain Healthy Kitchen says, “Processed nut milks are undeniably convenient, but the proportion of nuts to other ingredients is not ideal. In fact, you’d have to drink an entire half-gallon of almond milk to get the same nutrients as a handful of almonds. (Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk, for example, is only 2% almonds, 98% water, flavorings, and additives.) On the other hand, my homemade almond milk recipe is 2 cups almond to 3 cups purified water. The thickeners, stabilizers, and emulsifiers in processed nut milk are what give it a creamy, milk-like consistency.

Summer Cleanse Time

A Liver Cleanse Can Change Your Life

Summer is a great time to  cleanse your liver.  Do you need a cleanse?

Physical Symptoms of a Stressed Out Liver

  • Digestive problems
  • Allergies
  • Circulation problems
  • Red dry eyes or puffy eyes
  • Water retention or edema
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Shoulder pain  
  • Pain across the back below the shoulder blades

Emotional Symptoms of a Stressed Out Liver (and these emotions can cause liver stress)

  • Irritation
  • Impatience  
  • Critical
  • Rage
  • Hate
  • Angry outburst
  • Overly reactive
  • Not feeling heard
  • Not feeling loved
  • Not being recognized

  • Inability to express your feelings in a balanced way
  • Lack of joy
  • Inability to be honest with yourself and others
  • Unable to be authentic
  • Addiction

Feeling Overwhelmed?

If the liver is functioning well, it helps you deal with problems more effectively. But if you find yourself reacting to life with tension and emotional frustration, bitterness or anger, then there’s a good chance your liver needs cleansing.

Liver health is at the base of our confidence, character, and strength or weakness. If you don’t have much liver strength, you may spend a great deal of your time just getting by. . . like you’re going in circles. If you have poor liver blood reserves, you can experience extra tension, which prevents you from sleeping well.  Deep restful sleep restores your body and soul, and helps you deal with problems more creatively.

YOU CAN JOIN THE 30-DAY DETOX STARTING MONDAY AND CLEANSE YOUR LIVER.

Liver Cleanse Juice Cocktail

Garlic helps your liver activate enzymes that can flush out toxins. It also has a high amount of allicin and selenium, two natural compounds that aid in liver cleansing.

  • 2 ribs celery
  • 1/2 lemon, peeled, if not organic
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1-inch chunk ginger root

Juice all ingredients, stir, and enjoy!

ADD GINGER!!!

ADD GINGER!!!

Ginger Lowers Blood Sugar,
Cholesterol & Pain

Ginger has been used for centuries. It’s one of the most well-known spices when it comes to natural home cures. The most popular use for ginger as a home remedy is probably its use for nausea. Ginger naturally settles the stomach. It’s the secret behind why your grandma suggested ginger ale when you were not feeling well.  By the way, you can make your own healthy ginger ale with sparkling water, a tablespoon of ginger juice, and stevia to taste.
 
Ginger has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. One study found that people who took 2 grams of ginger a day saw improvement in muscle pain over the course of 11 days. Another study focused on osteoarthritis pain. Once again, researchers saw improvement in terms of pain for patients who took a ginger extract.
 
In addition to its anti-nausea and pain management benefits, ginger has also been associated with the following:

Nature’s Energizing Drinks

If you’re fatigued, I recommend you take 1-2 teaspoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in water. You should notice a difference within a few minutes. Apple cider vinegar contains potassium and enzymes and offers a natural electrolyte solution. It also contains amino acids that can reduce lactic acid build-up in the body helping to relieve fatigue. Also if you suffer from heartburn, this could be a life changer. If it doesn’t turn that around, then mix baking soda in water. Drink 30 minutes before your meals.
