From the Kitchen @ Hippocrates Health Institute – The best natural energy
http://www.hippocratesinst.org

People have consumed juices since the beginning of modern civilization. Fresh, raw juices are the best way to acquire needed nutrients in their most digestible form. Energy, strength, cleansing, healing, hydration, and the building and maintenance of the electrolyte system—as well as the renal (kidney) and respiratory systems, the two fluid-based systems of the body—are the main benefits of the consumption of these enzyme-rich liquids.

Ingredients/produce recommended to use in your juices and salads for their nutritional benefits.

Brussels sprouts – Contains protein that helps generate insulin, thereby improving pancreatic function and combating digestive disorders.

Cucumber – Benefits respiratory, renal, joint, and ligament functioning. Increases dermal elasticity.

Cauliflower – Improves the functioning of skeletal, digestive, and elimination systems.

Celery – Facilitates dermal detoxification and circulation. Reduces uric acid. Improves electrolyte function. Detoxifies the system of the effects of nicotine and caffeine. Promotes dermal flexibility. Provides organic sodium.

Daikon radish – Acts as a blood thinner. Maintains electromagnetic functioning of the solar plexus.

Dandelion – Creates red blood cells. Strengthens gums and teeth. Assists healthy bone development (skeletal and dental).

Endive – Improves vision and reduces the potential for and the severity of cataracts. Creates strong ventricular tissue.

Horseradish – Consumed in small amounts, removes excess mucous. Diuretic. Helps to counteract colds and flu.

Iris Flower – Builds ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Strengthens joints and improves membrane development.

Jerusalem Artichoke – Stabilizes blood sugar disorders. Generates energy.

Lily Flower – Builds capillaries. Strengthens vision and hearing. Assists the H cell development of the immune system.

Leek – Anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic. Prevents ulcers and inhibits parasites.

Lettuce – A subtle aphrodisiac and mood enhancer. Helps restore hair and skin.

Nasturtium – Builds the immune system, fighter cells, and eosinophils. Purifies the lymphatic system and the bloodstream.

Parsley – Minimizes the pain of menstrual cramps. Fights coronary disease, cataracts, conjunctivitis, and glaucoma. Improves vision, cardiovascular functioning, and blood count.

Pepper (ripe red, yellow, purple) – Reduces bloating, flatulence, colitis, and colic. Rich in vitamin C. Strengthens metabolism, specifically of the heart, and reduces the risk of microbial infection.

Potato (white) – High mineral content, especially potassium, assists renal and cardiovascular function. Effective against arthritic and osteoporotic conditions.

Sauerkraut (raw) – Improves dermal elasticity and appearance. Cleanses and builds the digestive organs. Enhances the probiotics in the gastrointestinal tract, which in turn strengthen immune cells.

Sorrel – Enhances healthy skeletal and dermal development. Creates greater bone density in the lower extremities.

Spinach – Prevents anemia, convulsions, neuronal disorders, and adrenal dysfunction. Builds red blood cells to cleanse the liver, thereby improving immune function.

String bean (green, purple, yellow) – Regulates blood sugar (in both diabetes and hypoglycemia) by insulin stimulation. Develops proteinase (protein-digesting enzymes).

Tomato – Contains minimal amounts of lycopene. Although it is effective in the reduction of prostate, breast, and colon cancers, and in combating hepatitis A, B, and C, it is less effective than tomato seed sprout juice. Detoxifies the liver and gall bladder.

Turnip Greens – Consumed in small quantities, builds bones, facilitates digestion, prevents colon polyps and hemorrhoids.

Violet Flower – Consumed in small quantities, stimulates the spleen and assists in the production of healthy red blood cells, fingernails, and toenails.

Watercress – Consumed in small amounts, increases hemoglobin to prevent anemia and chronic low blood pressure. Strengthens joints, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Helps to reduce tumors by improving circulation.

Yellow squash – Packed with bone-building minerals. Acts as a diuretic and relieves constipation.

Can You Eat Raw For $3 a Day? by Frederic Patenaude

Be sure to check out the special offers from Frederic, exclusively for visiting this blog. Don’t delay as the discounts are subject to change at any time!

Can You Eat Raw For $3 a Day? by Frederic Patenaude

Can you eat raw for $3 a day? In most cases, no! But you can do it for $10 a day. And good news: a well-balanced plant-based diet (not raw) can cost only $3-5 a day!

I worked hard to crunch numbers and figure out how it would be possible to live on a plant-based diet for just $100 a month, or a 100% raw food diet for $10 a day.

I calculated the *exact* cost of all fruits per calories.

I also compared prices all over different cities, and compiled all the best ways to get the best deals on food.

What started as a personal challenge turned into a sort of economic science experiment!

The result is a new book I wrote called “How to Eat Well for Under $100 a Month on a Plant Based Diet” as well as a companion eBook “The Raw Food Diet for $10 a Day.”


The Special is Back

I want to let you know that Frederic’s book, “How to Eat Well for Under $100 a Month on a Plant-Based Diet” with the companion book is available now for $29.95 instead of the usual price of $47.

How to Eat Well for Under $100
http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?Clk=4900783

Coupon: MINDY100
$29.95 instead of $47


The reason why I created two separate eBooks is that the methods are different for each approach.

A 100% raw foodist could not live on the same budget as a cooked food vegan because fruits and vegetables are more expensive by calories.

So the approach that must be taken for each diet is different, but can be combined together.

For example, the approach I lay out in my main book tells you how you can eat for just about $3 a day on a plant-based diet. This plant-based diet would include 2-3 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables a day, and of course sources of calories such as potatoes, beans, and some grains.

Someone could well decide to exclude certain items from the menu such as grains and still manage to still within the budget guidelines, and someone else could decide to combine the best of both worlds, such as a high-raw diet with some cooked calories.

In this case the total budget would be in-between $3 and $10 a day.

That’s still significantly less than the outrageous grocery bills most people have!

But you could decide to revert back to my main “plant food” budget of $100 a month by following my methods, if you have a particular goal in mind.

For example, maybe you want to save up for a holiday. Then why not try the plant-based budget for 1-2 months, and then go back to the raw food budget?

It’s totally possible to make it work no matter what your diet is.

If you missed the special for the eBook “How to Eat Well for Under $100 a Month on a Plant Based Diet” with the companion book, you can order it *today* or within the next week only and get the special by using coupon code MINDY100

What Is Detox? From Hippocrates Health Institute

What Is Detox? From Hippocrates Health Institute
http://www.hippocrateshealthinst.org

What is detox?

That is a word you will hear a lot while you are here at Hippocrates. Unfortunately, it is no secret that we live on a polluted planet today. The air, the land, the water, and the food are contaminated by the 85,000+ chemicals we humans have created over the last 200 years for whatever reason. Here is a list of the ten most common toxic chemicals that permeate our environment:

PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls). Risks: Cancer, impaired fetal brain development.

Pesticides Risks: Cancer, Parkinson’s disease, miscarriage, nerve damage, birth defects.

Herbicides Risks: Cancer, heart disease, asthma, multiple sclerosis, diabetes.

Plastics Risks: Endocrine system damage (plastics chemically mimic hormones)

Formaldehyde Risks: Cancer, eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders, and memory impairment.

Dioxins Risks: Cancer, reproductive and developmental disorders, chloracne (a severe skin disease with acne-like lesions), skin rashes, skin discoloration, excessive body hair, mild liver damage.

Asbestos Risks: Cancer, scarring of the lung tissue, mesothelioma (a rare form of cancer).

Heavy Metals (lead, mercury, etc.) Risks: Cancer, neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, foggy head, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, decreased production of red and white blood cells, abnormal heart rhythm, damage to blood vessels.

Chloroform Risks: Cancer, potential reproductive damage, birth defects, dizziness, fatigue, headache, liver and kidney damage.

Chlorine Risks: Sore throat, coughing, eye and skin irritation, rapid breathing, narrowing of the bronchi, wheezing, blue coloring of the skin, accumulation of fluid in the lungs, pain in the lung region, severe eye and skin burns, lung collapse, reactive airways dysfunction syndrome (RADS) (a type of asthma).

The human body is perfectly capable of dealing with limited exposure to many of these toxins within a given time frame. However, once you come into contact with and ingest more of these toxins than you can cope with, your body has no choice but to store those toxins until a later date when hopefully you clean up your act. Typically, these toxins are stored in fat cells but they may also be stored in your muscles, organs, and other tissues.

So, maybe it’s been a long time since some of you have eaten:
• 100% organic
• 100% plant-based
• 100% raw
• 50% living foods (sprouts)

Each of these four protocols is extremely important in and of itself. When you combine all four of these protocols as you will here in the Hippocrates Life Transformation Program, you come up with a super-charged package for enabling the body to restore its own natural vibrant health. Plus, you are drinking purified water while you are here on campus. You are on a fragrance-free and a chemical-free campus. We use salt and ozone to clean the pool and Jacuzzi waters and keep them pure. We have scalar energy devices hidden throughout the campus to protect you from harmful electromagnetic radiation, Wi-Fi, routers, and cell phones.

Your body thanks you for your pure diet and pure environment by cleaning house first. That means getting rid of stored toxins. These toxins can make a little trouble on their way out. Detoxification manifests itself in different ways depending upon your history.

Detox symptoms can include:
• Tiredness
• Headache for no apparent reason
• Nausea
• Joint/muscle aches and pain
• Pimples, rash or other skin eruptions
• Temporary cold- or flu-like symptoms
• Emotional

Whether or not a person experiences detox symptoms and the severity depends on many factors – previous diet, exposure to environmental toxins, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, prescription drugs, stress, sleep patterns, etc. This is exactly the same effect as the more familiar “withdrawal” some people experience when trying to come off of certain addictions such as alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. And, it happens for exactly the same reason.

You eliminate toxins through four channels: breath, skin, urine and bowels. When you fast, or eat 100% organic, plant-based, raw, and living foods the body has extra energy. It uses that extra energy to push the toxins out of the body quickly. When the toxins start coming out faster than you can eliminate them through the normal channels we commonly get a detox reaction. The best way to reduce or eliminate detox symptoms is to give these four channels a little help. Here are some of the methods that we can use to accomplish that:

• Drinking lots of purified water and fresh green drinks
• Drinking fresh wheatgrass juice
• Rebounding
• Breathing exercises
• Yoga
• Exercise (any form)
• Infrared sauna
• Steam room
• Anything that makes you sweat a great deal (Jacuzzi, regular sauna, etc.)
• A very warm Epsom salts bath
• A very warm powdered ginger bath
• Lymphatic massage
• Enemas and colon hydrotherapy

If you use some or all of these protocols you will reduce or completely eliminate any uncomfortable detox reaction. As a last ditch effort eating a handful of raw soaked nuts or seeds or having some toasted Manna bread will also slow down the detox reaction.

Chlorella, blue-green algae, and LifeGive® Internal Cleanser are three supplements that can also reduce the negative side effects of detox. The reward for working through this process and getting all the toxins out is a new, vibrant, radiant, and healthy you! Come to Hippocrates to detox and experience new levels of health you never thought possible.

Everything You Need to Know About Super Immune Boosters by Herbal Papaya

Everything You Need to Know About Super Immune Boosters by Herbal Papaya
http://herbalpapaya.com

What you should be eating to boost your immunity, and the importance of a healthy digestive tract.

As the nights get shorter and the days get colder, it’s time to start thinking about boosting our immunity for the long haul of fall and winter. After all, it’s no fun being sick during the holidays!

Firstly, it’s important to understand how your immune system functions. Your immune system is your body’s natural defense mechanism from bacteria, viruses, microbes, toxins, and parasites.

Your immune system goes about protecting your body from these infections through 3 actions:

1. It creates a barrier against said infections

2. If the bacteria gets through the barrier, the immune system tries to identify what that bacteria is and attempts to block it from reproducing in your body.

3. If the bacteria successfully reproduces and therefore causes you to have physical symptoms, such as strep throat or a cold, it’s the immune system’s job to then find a way to eliminate it.

Your immune system is made up of various components inside your body that work together, some of which include your thymus, spleen, bone marrow, white blood cells, antibodies, and hormones.

By taking care of your body, getting enough rest, drinking a lot of fluids, and paying attention to what you eat, you’re able to support how well your immune system functions.

In this article, we’ll focus specifically on what to eat and how certain foods can help increase the chance of your immune system fighting off nasty viruses and bacteria.

These are our recommendations for the best super immune boosters to take this fall with your health in mind.

Garlic

Italian food enthusiasts unite! Garlic has been known for years for its healing properties and immunity boosting capabilities. Garlic contains the active ingredient allicin that helps fight bacteria and infections and thus helps to boost your immunity.

Yogurt

Natural probiotics are a type of healthy bacteria that actually help keep the gut and intestinal tract clean from tenacious germs. Two 6 ounce doses a day of yogurt is recommended for the most immune boosting benefits.

Oats/Barley

Some studies have proven that oats and barley are even more beneficial than the immunity-friendly echinacea. What makes them so great for boosting immunity is the beta-glucan they possess, which is a type of fiber that has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.

Mushrooms

A food that has been linked to a healthy immune system for awhile now, mushrooms help to increase the production of white blood cells in your body and can even make them more aggressive against outside invaders. The kinds that have the biggest immunity boosts are shiitake, maitake, and reishi.

Cut down on the sugar

Have you ever noticed that kids tend to get sick after Halloween, Easter, and Christmas? There have been multiple studies linking the negative side effects of too much sugar, mainly it tends to decrease your natural immune responses.

Fermented/Pickled Foods

Whether you prefer miso soup, pickles, or something in between, fermented and pickled foods add good bacteria into your digestive tract and help boost your natural defenses.

Zinc

One of the more important nutrients for digestive health, zinc also helps with hormone regulation, neurological function, and of course, immune health. Beans, mushrooms, cocoa, wheat germ, spinach, pumpkin seeds, and nuts are all high in zinc.

Ginger Root

Ginger is another diet-friendly food that has been known for its health benefits for years. It helps to improve digestion, clean the GI tract, increase antioxidant levels, reduce inflammation, and boost immunity.

This is just brushing the surface of possible foods you could add to your diet to boost your immunity, but these are some of our favorite ones that we would consider the “super” immune boosters for anyone’s diet.

A note on digestive health and the immune system

You may have noticed a common thread with many of these foods, and that’s the fact that a lot of them help with digestion. You may be surprised to learn that your digestive tract and immune system are closely tied together. Your digestive tract is actually responsible for a lot of the daily functions in your body that you’re probably not aware of.

Your digestive tract relies on the abundance of “good bacteria” to function properly, but it works vice versa as well. Your immune system also relies on your digestive tract for strength and consistency.

The reason why your digestive tract is so important to your immunity is because you intake so many pathogenic organisms each day. The digestive tract has most of the innate immune responses in your body that naturally kill bacteria from saliva and stomach acid. A clean digestive tract therefore helps the immune system focus on and protect the rest of the body through its automatic responses.

This is why it’s so important to create a well-rounded diet that includes foods that naturally help to cleanse out your digestive tract and keep it healthy – it’s connected to so much of your wellbeing!

This fall, it’s time to start thinking about the key aspects of your body that do so much for your daily health – your digestive tract and immune system!
