I have been drinking this super smoothie almost everyday. Here's some fun facts about my greens:
Spinach- contains Vitamin K, A, E and C. These vitamins assist in blood clotting, good vision, immune function, repairing tissue and healing wounds. The folate in raw spinach helps prevent neural tube birth defects.
Parsley- High Source of Flavonoid Antioxidants. Provides Beneficial Essential Oils That Fight Cancer. Acts as Natural Diuretic and Helps to Relieve Bloating. Improves Digestion. Has Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties.
Cucumber- Contains an anti-inflammatory flavonol called fisetin ( basically, it protects your brain from age related decline) They contain phytonutrients called cucurbitacins, which also have anti-cancer properties. They also assist in fighting inflammation.
The earth has provided us with what we need 🌏🌿🌞💕 #greensmoothie#veggies#raw#cucumber#parsley#spinach#smoothie#naturalmedicine#naturalhealing#selflove#goodmorning
Any guesses what new crop we're trying out this year? Hint: it's medicine, but not food, it's one of the strongest textiles known to man, and there's a war still raging against this little plant in many states. Mind boggling.
Bring on the sunshine and 70 degrees, we're ready for it - and so are our hemp starts 🌿a little snapshot of just part of our industrial hemp crop last summer. Like I've been sayin', sunshine, soil and water make the best medicine.
My home made "sicky shake". Berry flavored. I know- looks disgusting..but the Flu calls for drastic measures. This is the medicinal shake that brought my Lexi back to life when she was withering away for 2yrs. This time im counting on it to heal n build up my hubby. Its non dairy, Fruits, veggies, beans & coconut oil. Its a complete healthy whole food meal replacement that actually tastes good. None of that nasty oil, sugar n processed empty calories u get in stuff like "ensure" or "pediasure" that Dr's like to prescribe. #kitchenremedies#naturalmedicine#medicinalshakes#sickyshake
Once you see where you are, it’s much easier to see where you need to be. This is why setting health goals by beginning with an assessment results in a much higher chance of success.

We often think of grains and starches as healthy sources of fiber and nourishment. What's not talked about is that plant fiber from veggies is a healthier substitute. Green leafy plant fiber is not a contributor to heart disease and type II diabetes, nor are greens at the top of the list this year for causes relating to the decreasing US life expectancy rates. We often thing of granular sugar and processed sugars as substances we need to stay away from, yet starches and many grains are treated exactly the same way in the body. There is solid scientific research linking blood sugar above 70 to increasing correlation of heart disease! That's not even delving into the relationship between high blood sugar and type II diabetes OR high blood sugar and Alzheimer's/cognitive decline early in life. Time to think about our diet and the hidden ways the food industry sneaks sugars into products we think are healthy like "whole grains" and "gluten free" products.

Carvacol and thymol, two phytochemicals in oregano, are powerful antimicrobials. Research has shown essential oils from oregano may kill the foodborne pathogen Listeria4 and the superbug MRSA (making it a useful addition to hand soaps and disinfectants).5 According to one of the researchers involved in the MRSA study:6 "We have done a few preliminary tests and have found that the essential oil from the oregano kills MRSA at a dilution 1 to 1,000. The tests show that the oil kills MRSA both as a liquid and as a vapor and its antimicrobial activity is not diminished by heating in boiling water." Studies have also found essential oils of oregano to be useful against certain Candida species.7

Tomorrow I am being interviewed on The @theonairadvocate with Tammy Flynn.
We will be talking about Naturopathic Medicine- what it is, the current state of licensure, how to make sure you're seeing a qualified healthcare professional, and some common myths about naturopathic medicine.
If you're interested in natural health, alternative medicine, or just wondering what this "naturopathic" stuff is all about, you don't want to miss this interview.
