Probiotics, Supplements and Yeast overgrowths… 

ARE PROBIOTICS RIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY?

I tried using many types of probiotics and supplements over the years on my kids, clients and myself… I’ve done candida diets and yeast cleanses and even tried adding more yeast in and other crazy things!

IMG_3264.JPG

 

The balance within your body such as yeasts, funguses, worms, parasites, mucus, acids, protein plaques, microbes, virus etc….must get detoxed and removed out of your body to get to the root of health. In order to change the environment in the body we must clean out the old not just ‘add’ in new. Supplementing with “pills” in a body with a backed up septic tank will not get you true health.

 

When the body fails to function in areas such as digestion, absorption, utilization and elimination. Trying to fix the problem with an isolated pill, supplement or adding large amounts of one bacteria and one mineral will not bring the body balance…. especially as they are none organic in it’s holistic structure (no longer a whole food but a part of a food that has been chemically changed and isolated) is only going to feed the body with just another foreign invader creating more imbalance and stress. I think of the phrase in movies when they say ‘magic comes with a price’…well so does supplementation…. 


The body is designed to utilize holistic chemistry so thinking a supplement created in a lab by big pharma will do more then what a whole organic fresh ripe piece of fruit can’t do….is not thinking from a place that nature provides us with all we need, and it does!

 

Supplements suppress the function of the endocrine glands and throw the body out of balance…


‘Probiotics are dead fermented chemistry not designed for the body’ says Dr Herbet Shelton. The body is designed to create healthy gut bacteria from the foods we are designed to eat and our environment. When we detox the body and turn on the endocrine glands, everything goes back to balance. When we get back to nature and simply eat the foods our bodies are biologically designed to eat….the body will create healthy natural bacteria to fight of the microbe that cause obstructions naturally. 


Probiotics and fermented foods like Kefir and Sauerkrauts only aggravate and make candida symptoms worse…I know that it controversial, as they are marketed as gut healing foods. Candida thrives on fermentation. Candida or (yeast) gets out of control in the body through fermentation so why add more in? When you have weak adrenals then you are likely to have blood sugar problems. When your not metabolizing sugars well, fermentation takes place. The fungal family comes in and feasts on the fermentation….so the food you eat is just feeding them not your cells. Why give the body more fermentation if you may already have a sugar metabolism issues creating the yeast overgrowth in the first place? We need some left in the body but for it to be at blanched ratio…

 

So if you have skin issues, weak yellow brittle nails, dry hair, bloating, gas or loose stools…you have a fungal imbalance.

The simpler we can look out how the body is designed to function optimally the more we will understand that supplementing is another way of masking a symptom and not addressing the root cause….just like prescription drugs!

 

IMG_3263.JPG

 Often these supplements are made from sister or cousin companies of BIG PHARMA…..just think about that for a moment with where the motivation comes from?


The best way to get rid of yeast overgrowths is to work on the adrenal glands with herbs/homeopathy and a raw living foods diet high in ripe fruits and the correct food combinations.  If you think you have a candida overgrowth you should also avoid or never eat starches processed or in there whole food state. Starches are fungal formers and candida loves foods that create a lot of mould, such as starches and dairy products. If you have candida I would suggest keeping your fats to below 5 % of your nutritional plan too as the fats in the system will stop fruits being digested, and cause fermentation of the healthy fruits. High fruits, low protein and low fats are the best way to heal the body.


It’s very common for someone to crave breads, nuts and cheese when they have fungal problems….because the yeast thrive on these foods because the fermentation process takes place very quickly.

 

The goal to get healthy and to create balance in the body is to alkalize the body and to get the kidneys filtering and everything will come into balance on its own…not needing one extra mineral…with the exception of magnesium due to our soils and possible B12 until your body can utilise it from the organic fruits and vegetables and produce it in your gut.

Fruits, berries, melons, greens and herbs that promote detoxification is the best way to bring balance and alkalinity to the body with a daily mediation practice to boost your immune system and complementary remedies like essential oils, homeopathy and herbs. Yeast, parasites, fungusus cannot thrive in an alkaline body, nether can any pathogens and foreign invaders and viruses. 

 

Dr Robert Morse teaches that there is only 2 sides of chemistry and that’s acid and alkaline. When you get on the alkaline side of chemistry and you detox the acids that are suppressing the lymphatic system, blocking the flow of energy and causing disease… then “nutritional ” supplementation becomes a void modality that was created by a mind and industry that doesn’t understand the lymphatic system and true healing like we do in Natural Hygiene. 


It’s not what we add in that creates a healthy body it’s what we eliminate that creates a thriving healthy body with balance. 


Detoxification is the best way to get to the root of the problem and if we are stuck on supplementation with PILLS,  powders,  supplements and thinking that we are adding in “Nutrition” …thinking that’s going to clean up the problem!  Then we have been fully mistaking by so called “Health Experts” that are thinking no different then a medical Doctor that prescribes a drug to treat a symptom, not addressing the cause.  So many of these healthy natural supplements and nutritional meal replacement systems are produced by big pharmaceuticals companies that make the medicines and drugs. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR LONG TERM HEALTH JUST ABOUT MAKING MONEY AND TEMPORALLY GIVING YOU THE SENSATION OF HEALTH.


The best supplement you can give your body is creating kidney filtration to drain the waste, so that he body can go on to thrive in proper homeostasis, balance and alkalinity.  This takes time I have been on this journey for years….I hold strong that I am in it for the long term health and not quick gains. I picture myself a health 60 year old and smile with knowing this is the right path to healing.


Add in alkaline nutrition and stop putting acids in your body and you will never need an expensive supplement to mask a symptom and create an imbalance not aligned with nature…

Got skin Issues?

Acne, psoriasis, eczema, rashes, cold sores, pimples, dermatitis, pigmentations….

The lymphatic system play a huge part when it comes to the skin.
If you are struggling with skin problems understanding the cause of why you have this issue will help you heal from it. Acidosis is when the lymphatic system is backed up with acids in the body….thus the root of all obstructions that cause disease. This is created by having an acidic lymph system that has become stagnant and suppressed by these acids because the wastage got to full, creating a lot of metabolic waste and destruction in the human body.
The lymphatic system is the largest fluid in the human body. Dr Morse teaches that the blood fluid is the kitchen and the lymph fluid is the septic tank. He often says…Nobody poops in the kitchen right? 

He is right… when the trash in the kitchen gets backed up it gets cleaned out and disposed. This is how the blood and lymphatic system work together the blood dumps any metabolic waste in the sewer system (the lymphatic system) every septic tank has a valve so you can drain the waste well so does the human body. The kidneys are the valves to drain this waste stored in the lymphatic system. When the kidneys get clogged up with mucus and acids then the septic tank gets to full. Then these acids will chew on every tissue, gland and organ in the human body. This will create a whirlwind of symptoms and if the kidneys don’t drain the acids they will come out through your skin YOUR WHITE FLAG OF YOUR BODY. You might have heard that your skin is a reflection of your insides….or that your skin is a tip of the ice burg below!

Which is why no amount of fancy products or expensive creams or topical steroid creams will fix an internal issue. You must drain the wastage from the body too allow it to heal….

A REAL LIVING FOODS LIFESTYLE will do that high in fruits, low in fats and some herbs and greens and support you.

NOTE: If your skin is getting worse on a raw food fruit based diet,  it’s not the diet that’s causing the issue, but a systemic underlined issue being brought to the service. The fruits are stirring up these acids so that the body can eliminate them. TIME PATIENCE and FAITH BECAUSE the kidneys are so toxic and damaged from the mucus, pus and acid forming foods such as all processed food, beans, grains, dairy, meat and starches that it sometimes takes more then fruit and veg to get them cracked open so they can filter…that’s when homeopathy and herbs can help.

So why does the skin take a beating when eating such a healthy alkaline and hydrating foods? Fruits are proven to have the most nutrition out of any food we have access to and are the highest antioxidant content in foods sources. So aren’t antioxidants known to improve skin tone?

It’s a compromise lymphatic system that creates skin problems, but it’s not the skin having a reaction to the fruit, but it’s the acids coming out through the skin because of blocked channels such as the (kidneys) you get your kidneys to filter these acid waste out that are locked in a hardened lymphatic system (I no longer believe in food intolerances which implies we are reacting but shouldn’t be… just foods we should eat and foods that detox us, and “foods” that are not designed for us). When you get out this backed up sewage you will not experience the skin problems, head problems, nervous system problems and GI track related problems. Your skin is the largest eliminative organ in the human body. If you fail to get your Kidneys to filter you will experience skin related problems from the acids that have been locked in your body for decades. You’re not going to have pretty skin when sewage is being pulled from every orifice of the body and must come through the skin if not through the kidneys.

It’s very important to understand detoxification and know what to expect when you go on all fruit diet, especially coming off of standard western diet. Focus on the kidneys, and transition properly and you shouldn’t run into these problems.

All fruit diets should be enough to get the kidneys to filter so that you don’t run into these problems. However the level of kidney damage due to high protein and fats diets that we’ve been convinced are the right way to eat…have damage the kidneys in such a powerful way, that fruits alone cannot crack them open to filter these waste, despite the fact they are the most powerful and electrical high vibrational foods for moving obstructions. Thankfully we have the fruits to brake down these hardened acid obstructions that are chewing on are cells, organs, glands, tissues and blood, and we have (herbs, homeopathy and dry fasting) to open these plaque and damaged kidneys up so they can eliminate these waste, and pull them out. We then can go on, and experiences the life changing effects the fruits bring in are lives. Get your kidneys to filter, and stop blaming the underlined cause the fruits expose. Help your kidneys and get them to heal with fruits, herbs and dry fasting.

Contact me to learn how to transition to this lifestyle and get glowing skin and healthy insides!

Still drink coffee?. . .’oh just the one’ THINK AGAIN. . .

Do you think coffee is harmless to your adrenals?

Not just that 1 cup you have surely?

below I will help show you what that 1 cup of coffee even the black without milk will do to your adrenals and the effects that has on your entire system.

13 Little Known Facts About Coffee oh and Cacao!!

1. Caffeine is an alkaloid that the coffee plant uses to kill bugs, which eat its’ seeds which it wants birds to spread. The coffee plant also uses caffeine in the coffee pods to kill surrounding plants, so the coffee plant can attain more sunlight and grow larger. Caffeine is a pesticide, which causes genetic termination in living cells that come into contact with it.

2. MRI images taken before and after 1 cup of coffee showed a decrease in blood flow to the brain by 45%. http://abcn.ws/2ipmLj7

3. Brain imaging studies of chronic coffee drinkers showed they presented the same degradation of their brains as chronic alcoholics, cigarette smokers, Parkinson’s patients and marijuana users. http://dailym.ai/1qjSqi0

3. Coffee can cause an urge to move your bowels because this is one way the body tries to eliminate poison from the system fast. Coffee enemas are not a healthy practice and are not recommended unless you have stage 4 cancer and need a fast detox!

4. Coffee increases energy via the human fight or flight metabolic response, because the body is afraid of the caffeine based poison. Coffee doesn’t give energy, it removes it from the body. The energy a person feels when they drink coffee is the body going into overdrive because caffeine is a poison and all poisons activate an energy release in the body. (fight or flight) Coffee removes energy from the system making you need more and the cycle of addiction flows.

5. When the fight or flight response is triggered in the body, the lower IQ centers of the brain are activated as well as hormonal systems in control of aggression, violence, irrational and illogical decision making, jealousy, rage, anger, fear and paranoia.

6. When measured, 1 coffee activated the fight and flight response for 3 consecutive weeks, even though no other caffeine was consumed after that 1 cup of coffee. This means the most primal/low IQ centers of the brain (the limbic system) are activated for 3 weeks after consuming one cup of coffee, even if no other caffeine is consumed in that 3 week period. Making decisions through the limbic center of the brain (our caveman portion) is also proven to lead to chaotic life situations because of the low mental processing capabilities that area of the mind is famous for.

7. When coffee (caffeine) is consumed, the limbic part of the brain is hyper activated and the higher learning centers of the mind inhibited. The limbic part of the brain is only concerned with sex, reproduction, protection of territory, food acquisition and personal safety. The limbic portion of the brain is the most primitive and least developed portion of the mind complex. When you want to out smart or dominate another person, it’s best that their limbic system is activated, because it brings them to a mental state equal to that of a child.

8. The birth control pill inhibits clearing of ingested caffeine. This effect is increased dramatically by alcohol or pain killer use, therefore causing many cases of caffeine poisoning, which get treated as other things once the person reaches the hospital.

9. Coffee is proven to cause an enlarged prostate, high anxiety, insomnia, depression, birth defects, pain syndromes, unnatural breathing patterns, brain damage, hyperactivity, learning disorders (from the brain damage) behavior disorders, fatigue, certain types of cancer, Crohns, IBS, colitis, heart disease, headaches, PMS, increased incidence of muscle and tendon injury, joint pain, carpel tunnel…and that’s a short list.

10. Coffee causes fat gain and cellulite because by triggering the body’s flight or fight system (which any poison or threat does), eventually changes the body’s primary fuel source requirement to one of fat. When the body is threatend, it prefers fat as its’ primary fuel source, over sugar or protein. Constant activation of the body’s fight or flight system (via the daily ingestion of caffeine poison) aids in a metabolic shift to fat storgage and fat conservation, because again the body prefers fat as a fuel source when fighting any toxic intruder….. because fat contains 9 calories per gram for the fight, as oppsed to 4 calories per gram housed by sugar and protein. Welcome to the land of coffee (caffeine) induced fat gain, weight gain and cellulite. This is true for Cacao/chocolate too…read more next!

11. Coffee (caffeine) blocks iron absorption, causing the vast majority of anemia today. http://bit.ly/2qKSqwh The entire threat of caffeine in general includes caffeine teas, chocolates, caffeine based energy drinks, caffeine based pre work out drinks and over 2000 over the counter and prescription medications that PURPOSELY include caffeine either from chocolate or coffee. Medical doctors aren’t generally aware of the symptoms of caffeine poisoning and also only get paid when you’re sick, so keeping you on the coffee/caffeine train makes your return visits a guarantee!

12. Here we have an article explaining clearly why caffeine destroys human potential within the brain, leading lower life performance and achievement on all levels. This is an agenda explained below. Hot chocolate, caffeine laced energy drinks, chocolate and sugary sodas of course are gate way caffeine drugs for children…. towards their future coffee addictions as adults (which is why I never have knowingly given my children chocolate and do not recommend you ever do either.) Coffee shops are everywhere it is big business keeping everyone addictions alive. There’s a reason for this. http://bit.ly/2rmyyRT

‘There’s absolutely no scientific evidence what so ever that coffee provides any health benefits to the human body,’

13. An investigation conducted by the author of the most extensive book on coffee ever written, reviewed almost every scientific research piece regarding coffee and his conclusion was that there’s absolutely no scientific evidence what so ever that coffee provides any health benefits to the human body, on any level, in anyway. He openly declares that any positive promotion of coffee consumption is a blatant lie, doing grave harm to our entire society. The publication of any positive effects of coffee are false and all can be traced back to a very powerful, covert and secret “coffee lobby”, which has both commercial and ruling family origins. The author reviews the research in the book at this added link. http://amzn.to/2ljosiy How many coffee shops have opened in your town in the last 20 years?

So why the lying about coffee? Think of government and how governing a brain damaged population is easier than governing a healthy population. Start there and keep connecting the dots. This documentary explains more. http://bit.ly/2rweFbZ Coffee is only one brain damaging weapon used against an uninformed. The 10 most popular brain damaging weapons used against us (in order of use) are:

  •  1) vaccines
  • 2) coffee and caffeine products
  • 3) alcohol
  • 4) medical drugs
  • 5) sugar/wheat/cow’s milk
  • 6) fluoride
  • 7) cigarettes
  • 8) processed junk foods and genetically modified foods
  • 9) EMF radiation from wireless devices 
  • 10) chemtrails.

Coffee and caffeine products not only prime people to be overweight, sick and numb……they destroy the part of the brain that could warn the person that they’re becoming overweight, sick and dumb. This is how science is used against the slave. The best slave is a brain damaged slave, unable to think or care for themselves without the help of slave master. A helpless population guarantees a need for government. This is why the ruling families do everything in their power to create a helpless population, day in and day out. Governments exist because they perpetually create the conditions for their own existence. Ancient ruling families, who masquerade as modern altruistic governments, are not there to help the people progress, evolve or become more. You live on a chemically controlled slave based control grid. Coffee is just another poison that helps manufacture the low IQ and permanent ill health needed to maintain this control grid. Want to shut the human farm down and put slave master out of business? Reject the poisons!

Properties of fruit – Natures SUPERFOODS not from a packet!

We hear so much about superfoods and there is always a new berry or seed from a far away land packaged up ready to heal us! What about the common fruits you can get easily and eat every day?

Each fruit holds a different set of nutrients and can help you overcome deficiencies you may have or build you in areas you need. Learning to treat your body with these powerful packed goodies instead of supplements or pills or spending money on packaged super foods is the key to longevity, be it fertility, gut health, depression or removing heavy metals.

If I see a clients test results I work out how they can overcome these deficiencies  by adding in more of one fruit or more of a vegetable to build the body up. Once you learn to listen to your body and what it’s asking for you no longer have the need for supplements or crazy diets. And the body stops the addictive craving rollercoaster as really you listen to what it’s asking for and you start to grab natures powerful gifts . . . not the chocolate bar or coffee. . .

If you are consuming a lot of fruit or you will end up with insulin problems. A low fat raw food diet usually works best for most people look into the 80/10/10 Diet. If you are a slow oxidizer and have weight to loose you should aim for 10% fat in your diet or less. If you are eating a 2000 calorie diet this works out to be about 22 grams of fat per day and this adds up quicker than you might think. One avocado has about 25 grams of fat and one olive has 1 gram of fat. If you are a fast oxidizer you can eat a higher percentage of 20% but be careful not to consume too much high sugar fruit or stay high fat for too long.

Nasunin is also known for its ability to protect the fats surrounding the cell membrane of the brain. the chlorogenic acid it contains is known to be the most potent antioxidant that displays antimicrobial, antiviral and antitumor abilities and plays an important role in the prevention of many diseases. Glykoalkaloids invade cancer cells and stimulate the cell’s owns digestive enzymes the culinary definition of fruit excludes these foods, botany declares them a fruit because of their seeds. They are low in sugar and fat and are great to add to salads or just to eat alone as part of a low fat raw food diet. Best to be steamed whole and then added to salads or raw dips.

Melons.

Melons are one of natures miracle foods, close to our own milk in goodness as they give us all we need. They are one of the best cleansers and I recommend eating mono meals of melons too clear out your system. Melons are to be eaten alone due to there rapid digestion time so make a great breakfast.

Nutritional contents can actually be absorbed by the body’s digestive system of the plant become some of these substances exist in unabsorbable form. It lowers blood sugar levels and addition in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, reducing the patients intake of antidiabetic drugs.

Protein and Calcium on Raw Vegan Diet!

Protein is required for the development of the human body , but the protein consumed should be of the highest quality and is often misunderstood the amount we need per day. In a child it is around 15-20% per day and in an adult is 10-15% per day and in many cases much less. More proteiIn than this can cause inflammation in the body, more so if it is from animal products.

Other than Lychees ALL fruit and vegetables have all 8 Amino Acids (protein) and omega 3 fatty acids. 

There are proteins in everything that grows as long as it’s not a refined food. But If some of our vegan foods don’t stack up against animal foods and are deficient in certain amino acids, they are compensated by their abundance in other goodies and eating verity will help overcome this.

shutterstock_174457016
Green leafy vegetables and small amounts of a variety of nuts, legumes, sprouts and seeds provide this high level of nutrients and protein.

EAT YOUR GREENS AND GET YOUR KIDS TO EAT THIER GREENS DAILY!

For example:

  • Spinach contains 49% calories from protein.
  • Kale contains 45% calories from protein.
  • Hemp seeds contain 22% calories from protein.
  • Sprouts 44% calories from protein, an excellent source of protein and B12 so perfect vegan food.

A pregnant and lactating woman can get all the protein she needs eating verity rich whole food, raw living vegan diet without deficiencies.

IMG_4570.JPG

Eating meat floods the body with protein waste products. The kidneys then need to eliminate these acidic wastes, requiring calcium as a buffer in the process, leeching calcium from the bones. Calcium is continually lost in the urinary waste, and may result in osteoporosis or bone loss. It has been showed now that people who consume dairy in large daily amounts over their lifetime tend to have osteoporosis. Contrary what we are taught!

Vegetable protein is much more easily absorbed into the bloodstream without the loss of calcium from eating animal protein. Animal-based protein places a great stress upon the liver and kidneys. This is a link to great explanation: https://www.facebook.com/DrGoldner/videos/1885607438132191/

Also excess proteins have a negative effect on calcium stores too because amino acids contain sulfur, which in turn affects the body’s pH balance. Excess Calcium prevents fat absorption within the gut. I suggest eating your calcium rich foods like kelp, dulse, celery, broccoli, figs, rhubarb and oranges away from fats and proteins will help and too little calcium will affect your bone and teethe health.

Increasing your B12 now will help with protein absorption rather than eating more protein, and K2 for teethe and bone health, as it acts like a public transportation system for calcium. You consume calcium through food like the rich foods above. Vitamin D from the sun ~ the body easily absorbs vitamin D with just 15 minutes of exposure to sunshine per day ~ triggers ergosterol, which is transformed into vitamin D, which helps us absorb calcium from the foods we consume directly into our bloodstream. This will help take the pressure of the body from excuse protein until you can transition to a low fat high carb raw vegan lifestyle.

Then vitamin K2 takes the calcium to where it needs to go. Without vitamin K2, calcium can end up hardening in your arteries as plaque, and deposits in the joints, arteries, kidneys, brain and elsewhere.

Often we seem to be low or high in calcium when in fact it is due to heavy metal that calcium gets drawn out of the bones and teeth and floats around the blood not being able to be utilised so is urinated out. This means it is present, but cannot be used properly. This condition causes symptoms of both deficiency and excess at the same time because there can be a deficiency of available calcium, and an excess of bio-unavailable calcium at the same time. I do not suggest calcium supplements. The body does not cope well with large amount of nutrients not in a whole foods form being dumped in to the body so doesn’t utilise it and excretes most out.

We should eat the food to which we are naturally adapted too which has ample amounts of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, nutrients, and essential carbohydrates. Fruits, vegetables, green leafy vegetables, sprouts, berries, sprouted legumes, nuts and seeds. Not animal flesh to get our protein.

Protein rich plant foods are:

  • spinach 49% calories from protein.
  • kale 45% calories from protein.
  • broccoli 45% calories from protein.
  • cauliflower 24% calories from protein.
  • green paper 22% calories from protein.
  • parsley 34% calories from protein.
  • cucumber 22% calories from protein.
  • lettuce 29% (let that sink in!) calories from protein.
  • cabbage 25% calories from protein.
  • tomatoes 18% calories from protein.
  • apricots 12% calories from protein.
  • peaches 9% calories from protein.
  • sunflower seeds 14% calories from protein.
  • watermelon 9% calories from protein.

Yes you can get protein from fruit!

Let’s compare that to animal products:

  • beef 25.8% calories from protein.
  • chicken 23% calories from protein.
  • eggs 12% calories from protein.

WHY RAW LIVING FOODS! For Healing Diseases and Autism. . .

What’s the nutritional difference between cooked and raw foods?

When you cook vegetables, you change their chemical composition making them unable to be utilised by the body. Depending on the method and time, cooking reduces the amount of antioxidants in the plants.
This is especially true for water-soluble and heat-sensitive nutrients, such as vitamin C, glucosinolate and polyphenols. Cooking can reduce a nutrient’s ease of absorption into the body, making them useless for the body and it becomes a mucus forming food making it toxic for the body and thus causing inflammation.
16425880_1937384009881484_8037353823920606020_n.jpg
We are all energy so eating foods high in energy, vitality and life force will help us have that energy and vitality ourselves. When you eat raw living alkalising foods you feel alive! The food moves through your body faster feeding your cells with high nutrients and a high water content hydrating you from the inside, better than plan water alone in some foods like cucumber, lettuce and watermelon. When you eat heavy, acidic, fatty cooked foods you want to sleep as your system is so overburdened and toxic it removes the energy and oxygen from the brain and muscles. And has to work hard to digest the heavy fatty foods sitting in the intestines, fermenting and dehydrating the body and causing an acidic state which leads to disease and cancer.

Food combining and why is it essential for health!-chart.
If your new to a plant based diet, even though you lose some nutrients value when cooking vegetables, I would still suggest building your vegetable intake up first moving to a 100% plant based diet and removing all animal products, with lightly steamed vegetables and greens. Then when you can and feel ready swapping cooked vegetables for as many raw vegetables as possible to help build your enzymes up in your gut and help PH balance your body, allowing for detoxification of the blood and lymphatic system – remembering fruit and raw vegetables and lots of greens are the only way to detox your body and remove heavy metals and mucus thus healing your body from disease and sickness. Cooked foods are mucus forming and lacking in enough nutrients to build your body to health. We are all so deficient these days with the quality of our soils, food, water and air . . . so to remove nutrients from our food by cooking it is not helpful. Also cooked foods are feeding the parasites and fungus our body are becoming imbalanced with because of it being to acidic. When the body is acidic and deficient in minerals and enzymes, diseases start and cells mutate into cancer. We want to make the body alkaline and thriving!

Knowing how detoxifying raw living foods are, start slowly when adding them in. Swapping 1 meal a day to a completely raw meal combined correctly, and build up. Or eating raw foods till dinner then a lightly steamed dinner. . . until you have regained enzymes to break the food down and the detox symptoms are manageable (this way of eating will not give you full healing properties as the cooked foods will stop you detoxifying fully). Or like me go 100% raw over night ride out the few days of detox and feel amazing and vibrant faster!

Either way increasing your raw greens, fruit and sweet young vegetables will benefit your body so much. You will see it in your skin, energy and vitality. If you can eat a food without doing anything to it bar peeling it then it’s a good raw food for the body. If you have to season it or cook it to make it palatable then it’s not our food.

Why Leafy Greens are so good for you and the Nutritional breakdown.

Not many foods can compare to the high nutritional value of leafy greens. Researchers are finding that eating your greens may be even more important than previously imagined. In putting together this article I found lots of quotes that stated “it was common for our ancient ancestors to eat up to six pounds of leaves per day”. Recent research shows that a gene that is essential for producing critical immune cells in your gut, responds to the food you eat—specifically leafy green vegetables. So eat your greens!

We now know that these greens are packed with an array of antioxidants and other disease-fighting compounds. Researchers also believe that these vegetables play an important role in controlling food allergies, inflammatory diseases and obesity, and may even prevent the development of bowel cancers (see Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for more on that).

images.jpeg

Here’s a nutritional breakdown of the top readily available leafy greens:

Kale:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K
  • High in Calcium (for a vegetable)
  • Also supplies Folate and Potassium

Collard Greens:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K
  • Good source of Folate, Manganese, and Calcium
  • Cancer preventatvive glucosinolates (glucoraphanin, sinigrin, gluconasturtiian, and glucotropaeolin)
  • Similar in nutrition to Kale but more chewy with a stronger taste

Swiss Chard:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K
  • Good source of Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Iron and Vitamin E
  • At least 13 different Polyphenol Antioxidants, including Kaempferol and Syringic Acid
  • Unique source of Phytonutrients called Betalains (provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support)

Turnip Greens:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K
  • Good source of Folate, Manganese, Calcium, Copper, Vitamin E and Vitamin B6
  • Bitter taste linked to high Calcium (4x more than cabbage, 2x more than mustard greens)
  • High glucosinolate content (phytonutrients with cancer-preventing properties)

Spinach:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K
  • Good source of Manganese, Folate, Iron, Vitamins C, B2, B6 and E
  • Showed evidence of significant protection against the occurrence of aggressive prostate cancer.
  • Glycoglycerolipids help protect the lining of the digestive tract from damage — especially damage related to unwanted inflammation.

Beetroot Greens:

  • Excellent source of vitamins A, C, E and K
  • Good source of Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Zinc, Vitamins B6

Valuable source of Lutein/Zeaxanthin (good for eye health)

Lettuce:

  • Excellent source of vitamin K. Vitamin K has a potential role in the bone metabolism where it thought to increase bone mass by promoting osteotrophic activity inside the bone cells. It also has established role in Alzheimer’s disease patients by limiting neuronal damage in the brain.
  • Fresh leaves contain good amounts folates and vitamin C. Folates are part of co-factors in the enzyme metabolism required for DNA synthesis and therefore, play a vital role in prevention of the neural tube defects in the baby (fetus) during pregnancy.
  • Vitamin C is a powerful natural antioxidant; regular consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.

So don’t over look the humble lettuce it’s my favorite green to have in the fridge . . .

How to Choose Leafy Greens

When choosing your greens, you should always look for leaves that are crisp. You want to hear a slight snap when you crack the stems. If they are wilted, soggy, or slimy, keep looking! Ideally, they have been stored in a cool place but watch out for greens stored in ice and the leaves will burn. Greens are loaded with water. Ice can crystallize the water and the greens may end up mushy by the time you get them home.

The leaves should smell fresh and, well, really green!

images-1.jpeg

Colour is also important. If you have a choice, pick the darkest leaves. Don’t worry about a few brown spots, that’s perfectly normal, especially at the farmers markets. However, if the edges are consistently brown throughout all the leaves they are not good. Last but not least, is smell. The leaves should smell fresh and, well, really green!

NOTE: Non-organic greens can be very high in pesticides. This is one of those items that are definitely worth buying organic.  It is to buy from a local grower when possible. Make sure your growers are practicing sustainable farming practices and not using heavy chemical pesticides and herbicides. If you can’t buy from a local farm or farmers market, then make sure to choose organically-certified greens at the grocery store. There’s no skimping on greens they should always be organic where possible.

Eat your greens! Add them to each meal in smoothies, juices, salads, use as wraps and serve with dips.

I do not suggest cooking greens . . . if they are not sweet enough to eat raw, then do not eat them at all. Once you cook leaves you loose the nutrients of them and the healing properties they hold.

doTERRA Essentail Oils for Autism, ADHD and ADD…

doTERRA have so many beautiful oils for supporting your family. At the start of our journey I was hesitant to use Essential Oils (EO’s) as we were so sensitive to everything and didn’t understand how they could help us. However Autism has a habit of introducing you to things you never knew existed. Slowly I have introduced the oils into my home and over time began to adore them and their healing properties. Like all things it’s a balance . . . so no EO will be the “CURE’ to your condition or symptom, but they can help calm your children, detox your bodies, clean your home and break energy.

images-3.jpeg

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. … The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected, as you all know by now only the purest best food or water will enter our lives and thats why I will only ever recommend this company. They are ethical, vegan, sustainable and eco friendly. They give back to the planet and look after their members. To retail  purchase these beautiful oils you can contact me on 0414967763 or if you would like to join the beautiful doTERRA family and have a wholesale account with no lock-in reorders and with the opportunity to get free monthly oils and incentives and grow a business please email me on hannah@nourishtohealth.com.au to discuss this more.

How to Apply Essential Oils.

  • Topically, by mixing a few drops with fractionated coconut oil then applying to the base of the neck with a roller ball.
  • Adding a few drops to a diffuser (make sure the diffiser is in the same room as the child)
  • Adding one or two drops directly on the child. (Be careful with this as some oils are considered hot and can burn, so look at the label beforehand.) These are my favourite oils that I use daily.

Since many with ADD/ADHD, aspergers, or autism are highly sensitive to odours and sometime touch, do not force the application of oils if it is a negative experience as this will build experiential resentment towards their use in the future. Many times it is successful letting them make their own selection from a few choices of oils. Some kids with autism are particularly sensitive to smell and may resist the use of oils. Applying to the feet, even after they are asleep, can get you over this problem.

Here are my favourite oils for Autism, ADHD and ADD and to support ASD parents.

One of the first oils we tried was peppermint. My youngest used to get chest infections and high fever, and since I didn’t want to use medications. I used peppermint as a fever reducer and it works! It also helps with migraines, increasing oxygen if your tired and stomach pains. I put a drop right on his forehead.  But it is ideal to have a roller bottle with a mixture of the peppermint oil and a carrier oil like doTERRA fractionated coconut oil. You can then rub this mixture on the forehead or the back of the neck.

Another essential in your house and a regular in my home and handbag would be Lavender. It works great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime as it relaxes the nervous system. This is a great oil for those kids that can’t go to bed or don’t sleep well during the night. Using lavender helps you sleep longer at night, it also helps you sleep deeper. Lavender alone may not be enough for you so I would suggest for those really wired kids using Vetiver too. I put the diffuser on at night and this helps as well as putting some in a spray bottle with water to mist the pillow cases and sheets or dab it directly on the pillow or their soft toy. Lavender is great for cuts as it stops the bleeding, and for bites, eczema (use in the bath or with a carrier oil) and bruises. You can also add it to your face cream for extra moisture too ladies!

Vetiver as I just mentioned is amazing for deep sleep and great for those who have insomnia. Vetiver is psychologically grounding, calming, and stabilising for the nervous system. It helps with night terrors, restlessness, balancing emotions and ADHD. It was studied by Dr. Terry Friedmann for improving children’s behavior with ADD and ADHD in 100% of children in his study aged between 6-14. It may help people cope with stress and recover better from emotional trauma and shock. This oil helps quiet an overactive, exhausted or stressed mind. Also, it a great choice in helping to control anger, irritability, or neurotic behavior. We have found it helpful for calming William from his meltdowns when he was younger and currently if he gets over excited or worried and his nervous system gets overwhelmed. Watch how they source this amazingly powerful oil here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFYFgNSxYxk For school children that need help during the school day or may have ADD or need improved concentration, a necklace with a pendant that will absorb the oil can make it available all day or a sandalwood necklace that will absorb the oil or even dabbing some on there shirt collar.

Cedarwood I use in combination with Lavender. Cedarwood helps to stimulate the pituitary and pineal glands. It can also aid in increasing melatonin levels naturally starting to calm the kids down ready for dinner, bath and bed routine. It also can help with good sleep at night and focus during the next day. I pick the kids up from school when they are tired but excited and this if not managed can lead to meltdowns as they are often hungry too. So I hang my ‘smelly balls’ http://www.cocodaydream.com.au/smellyballshop in my car with cedarwood and lavender on them and within 5 minutes of them being in the car they both start calming down and talking about there day. If they are not at school I use this combination in my diffuser. Cedarwood is also great for edema and achy legs.

Frankincense the king of oils and my favourite!! It’s my go to oil for everything from cuts, anti-ageing and skin issues. It is extremely helpful in regenerating cells, calming and relaxing and promoting higher levels of consciousness in mediation as it stimulates the limbic system of the brain. This part of the brain controls instincts and mood and helps with epilepsy. It is very good at bringing a hyper or excited child down into his or her body and grounding them again. You can get it in a roller ball blend called InTune which is great to carry for trips to the supermarket or outings that might send your child off into a meltdown or into stimming. InTune is a special blend (Amyris, Frankincense, Lime, Patchouli, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang) prepared to enhance focus and support healthy thought processes, good for homework and concentration at school or the office. Don’t be put of with the price of frankincense as it is such an all round oil it will be an essential to your families needs.

Helichrysum italicum is considered a medicinal plant with many promising pharmacological activities because it operates as a natural antibiotic, antifungal and antimicrobial. Allergies, acne, colds, coughs, skin inflammation, wound healing, constipation, indigestion and Acid Reflux, liver diseases, gallbladder disorders, inflammation of the muscles and joints, infections, candida, insomnia, stomachaches
and bloating . . . wow thats one oil! yup its up there with frankincense and the go to oil and a must for an ASD family.

For frustration, impatience, and anger use oils and blends that calm. Like Balance, Serenity, Lavender, Ylang Ylang. Applying to the feet, back of the neck, behind the knees, and diffusion are all suggested.

images-1.jpeg

You can make up blends to help with calming, relaxation and serenity within the home. This is one of my favourite to make up in a rollerball.

14 drops Vetiver
5 drops Ylang Ylang
3 drops Frankincense
2 drops Clary Sage
1 drop Marjoram
5 drops Lavender

Fill the remaining space of the roller bottle with doTERRA fractionated coconut oil.

Another blend you can make up yourself for meltdowns is:

15 drops Peppermint
20 drops Frankincense
85 drops Vetiver
15 drops Helichrysum
10 drops Bergamot
10 drops Sandalwood
5  drops Cinnamon
10 drops Lemon (it facilities absorption)

onGAURD is the only medical first aid kit you will ever need! It helps boost your immune systems and protect against flu, colds, and viruses. As this is a hot oil (meaning it feels warm on the skin, always dilute it for kids. Adults can have it neat on their feet) Simple add 5 drops to  15 drops of fractionated coconut and rub on your kids feet at night once they have gone to bed. You can also get beedlets that you swallow too and throat sweets or you can make up a throat gargle with it too. You can dilute it with water and use it to clean your kitchen with and it’s ideal for your diffusers, killing of all bad bacteria and microbes and moulds and kill air bourne pathogens. It’s great to clear stuck energy too and I often use a spray bottle with water to clear a room. It works as great hand sanitiser and i make up a small 15ml spray bottle  with 10 drops of oil and carry it in my bag.

The doTERRA Flu Bomb. “It really, really works!! A more natural alternative to the toxic flu shot.”

  • 3 drops  Oregano 
  • 5 drops  OnGuard 
  • 5 drops Tee Tree (Melaleuca) 
  • 5 drops  Lemon

 

~OR~

  • 3 drops Peppermint
  • 2 drops Oregano
  • 2 drops Frankincense
  • 2 drops OnGuard

Put this in a Veggie Cap and take every 3 to 4 hours or as needed.

Another way is applying topically with fractionated coconut oil. This is great for using on young children.

Another way is for children to put oregano, melaleuca and OnGuard essential oil blend on their feet (1 drop of each and apply every 2-3 hours).
You can also can add 2 to 3 drops of On Guard essential oil blend.

Basil is great for those kids on the spectrum who are low functioning as it stimulates the nervous system and wakes up the brain, and helps with concentration, increases focus. We used this on Edward lots when he was behind on his fine and gross motor skills and speech.

Oregano the queen of oils. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and a anti-septic to the respiratory system also antiviral and an immune stimulant. There is no need for antibiotics from the Doctor when you have this oil. 1-2 weeks of taking this oil before winter and you will sale through with no nasty bugs. If you come down with gastro, a virus or cold or flu start taking this for 3-4 weeks. It is also very good for wounds and fungus infections.

Tee Tree (Melaleuca) is amazing for ear infections. Either run a bath and get you child to bath there whole head in covering the art or simple place some diluted around the outside of the ear. In extreme cases you could add 1 drop in a carrier oil and drop it in to the ear canal it self.

Breathe is the perfect blend for asthma, croup, colds, exercising, coughs, tightness in the chest or for sore throats and the elimination of bacteria and viruses from the body as it opens up the airways. Simple put a diffuser in your child’s room with 5-10 drops in and let them fall asleep. You could add a few drops to there pillow too.

These oils are mazing and along side a healthy raw vegan lifestyle, fresh air and clean water they are there to support your families needs.

mint, 1 clove garlic, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds – blended till smooth.

 

  1. BBQ Sauce – 4 organic soaked & drained semi-dried tomatoes, 2

soaked dates, 1/2 red capsicum, 1 clove garlic, 1/2 cup fresh

coriander, 1/2 cup fresh mint, 1 tsp sweet paprika, 2 fresh

tomatoes, 1 peeled zucchini – blended till chunky or smooth

which ever you like & add some of the date water if you need to

adjust the texture.

 

  1. Ranch Dressing – 1 cup soaked & drained macadamia nuts, 1

clove garlic, 1/2 cup fresh dill, 2 sprigs thyme, 1 tbs apple cider

vinegar, 2 spring onions, 1/2 lemon – blended till very smooth

adding water if needed. Once blended add thinly slice spring

onions and more chopped chives.

 

  1. Pina Colada- ½ cup pineapple juice. ¼ cup fresh mint. ½ cup coconut milk, 2 tbs tahini, 1 inch grated ginger, ½ garlic clove, 1 tbs coconut aminos, squeeze lime- blended till smooth.

 

Of course if you cannot eat garlic or nightshade or spices or nuts substitute these or keep it simple. I do not recommend processed oils or vinegars or salt and pepper – spices are to be kept at a minimum too – oils like olive oil stop the body digesting the food it’s eaten with . . . slowing down the digestion!
