Spring Detox

Spring is one of the best time to detox your body.  With the warmer weather it’s easier to drink vegetable juices for most meals or have a green smoothie and juice. My prayer is that you will never be sidelined from your destiny due to poor health.  I hope that you will be inspired to do your part in healing your body.  Detoxing is a big part of achieving renewed health.

colonThere are a number of cleanses you can do to detox your body. You can start right away. Vegetable juice fasting is very helpful as a kick off for the colon cleanse.  You can also do a liver/gallbladder cleanse, kidney-bladder cleanse. lung, lymphatic system, and skin and blood If you want to really be thorough, do a whole body internal cleanse with the Internal Cleanse Kit that comes with a free Colon Cleanse Kit.

 

Be Inspired!

Green Detox“I bought your books through the show It’s SuperNatural’s website. I have been juicing and eating healthy for 60 days. I lost 18 pounds, and my husband went from size 4X to 3X. We started with a 15-day juice fast for a couple of reasons. I had been on prednisone because of a very bad case of poison ivy. After I finished the prednisone, I still had the poison ivy rash, and I felt horrible. My husband, Edgar, has been trying to lose weight… unsuccessfully.  In addition he has high blood pressure and chronic fatigue syndrome. So we decided to fast…just juices and a smoothie at night.

I did not think Edgar would like the juices, because he does not like vegetables. Every time I tried to push a salad in front of him, he would say: I eat cow – cow eats grass – therefore I am eating veggies. However, it was his idea to do the juice fasting.  The colon-cleanser turned out to be his favorite. We have that juice every morning religiously. I slip in a piece of broccoli one day, the next day a couple of asparagus, and so on. At first I did not tell him in fear that he would suddenly taste the additional veggies, and stop the fasting all together. But it actually did not change the taste.

Well, here’s the amazing news! The poison ivy rash dried up in 10 days. Edgar, started losing weight and experiencing more energy.

After the fast was over, we incorporated veggies and tofu, eventually fish and chicken. I try to stay away from meat. I have been surprised to see that when we go to Fuddruckers, Edgar orders a salad! It has chicken in it, but just to see him enjoy  the salad is great accomplishment.

This is our new life style: Juices and a smoothie during the day, then a nice healthful dinner. We are not hungry, and we feel great. I don’t have cravings for sweets like I had before. The juicing has helped Edgar with his chronic fatigue syndrome, and of course the weight loss. Our goal is that he will eventually not need any medication for high blood pressure. So once again . . . Thank you!!!! Great is your reward in heaven!”  Graciela

Sauna Is Another Healthy Way to Detox

The simple act of sweating is one of the body’s safest and natural ways to heal and remain healthy.  The best way to induce a deep, detoxifying sweat is with a far infrared sauna.  Not to be confused with the hot rock or steam saunas of the past, far infrared saunas provide a gentle heat that is 7x more effective for detoxification.  Just like light from the sun, far infrared rays have the ability to penetrate up to 1-1/2 inches below your skin to detoxify and revitalize your cells. The resulting deep, highly efficient sweat eliminates toxins at the cellular level.

Not all infrared saunas are the same.  There are many low-end “infrared” saunas that don’t emit enough infrared to be effective.  The most credible brand on the market is Sunlighten.  Sunlighten far infrareds saunas have been clinically shown to actually raise core body temperature by 2 to 3 degrees (vs. simply heating the air around the body).  They also offer the only full spectrum infrared sauna which offers a 37 minute detoxification program, along with programs for weight loss, pain relief, and skin health.

This month, Sunlighten is having a Summer Detox Sale and all saunas are on sale.  Since I’m such a fan of Sunlighten, they have agreed to offer my readers a gift with any sauna purchase in June!  Visit www.Sunlighten.com to learn more.

The Healthy Detoxifying Benefits of Arugula

The Healthy Detoxifying Benefits of Arugula

The Healthy Detoxifying Benefits of Arugula

With its spicy flavor, arugula adds a lot of zip to a salad. But that’s not all it’s up to! It’s known to be cleansing for the blood, skin, and liver.

One of it’s unique cleansing properties is to counteract the destructive effects of heavy metals, particularly in the liver.1 A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, it is rich in detoxifying antioxidants. It also sports an abundance of flavonoids, phytonutrients that are known to help prevent cholesterol from sticking to the arteries, lowering blood pressure, and quelling inflammation. One study found that it could also help in fighting gastrointestinal ulcers.2

It’s Not A Weed To Your Body

It’s Not A Weed To Your Body

It’s Not A Weed To Your Body

The lowly little dandelion is something most homeowners detest.  Popping up in our beautiful green lawn, we go after them with a vengeance. Hopefully, no one is spraying them with chemicals.  But maybe we should be doing something more with them than throwing them away.  My grandmother picked them and made tea by boiling them.  I juice them—not for the taste, but for their health benefits.   All parts for the dandelion have a bitter bite. This taste comes from their flavonoids that give them their blood purifying properties. These compounds work in the digestive system to increase the flow of urine. Unlike other diuretics, dandelion contains vast amounts of potassium that restore the mineral balance in the kidneys as toxins are flushed out. Healers also count on dandelion’s highly volatile and bitter constituents in the root to flush toxins from the system.

Dandelion is in most liver tonics due to its oils, the bitter resins that stimulate the digestive system. The fiber in the whole plant is described as viscous because of its astonishing ability to absorb and transport toxins from the bowels out of the body, balance intestinal flora, and soothe the digestive tract in the process.

Conditions Helped By Dandelion

Detoxification is the word most people think of with dandelion. There are few detox formulas on the market that don’t use of this plant. Dandelion can be your best friend when recovering from illnesses. It can revive you after a flu or a cold have taken their toll. People with liver conditions, skin conditions, changes in hormones such as menopause or adolescence and arthritis (including gout) can benefit greatly from dandelion.

Dandelion is also useful for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and unstable blood sugar levels. This plant is full of bitter constituents that are not only excellent for stimulating the digestive system but offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Dandelion is also helpful as a lactation stimulator.

Liver Cleansing Cocktail

1 handful dandelion greens
3-4 carrots, scrubbed well, tops removed, ends trimmed
1/2 cucumber, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled

Bunch up dandelion greens. Cut produce to fit your juicer’s feed tube. Tuck the greens in feed tube and push through with the carrot. Juice remaining ingredients, finishing with a carrot. Stir the juice, pour into a glass, and drink as soon as possible.
Serves 1

Note: Dandelion juice is a traditional remedy for cleansing the liver.
