These lil purple globes are a powerhouse fruit that is amazing for your health and your skin! It’s so important to have restorative, hydrating foods in your diet when healing from eczema. Grapes are amazing because they are fiber and water-rich which is great for cleansing the digestive tract and they are super alkaline for the liver and kidneys as they help to pull metabolic wastes from them. When these detox channels are filtering properly, then eczema can’t stand a chance! We must cleanse internally to see external healing. The last channel of elimination, the skin, will no longer have the heavy burden of detoxing once the internal channels of elimination are working the way they should. You can even do a full-on grape fast as it can be the most healing for detoxification. Check out more info on DETOXING WITH FRUIT.
Check out this info from the Medical Medium in his book Life Changing Foods: “Grapes shouldn’t be misunderstood as being too high in carbs, sugar, or calories to be good for us. It’s just the opposite. Like bananas, grapes are a 1st rate fruit that promotes wellness on the highest level. They are less sweet than we think; they are more defined by tartness, which is a key medicinal quality. That sourness indicates the presence of phytochemicals critical to kidney function. If you’ve ever heard that you have elevated creatinine levels, this means your kidneys have become compromised in their ability to remove and excrete waste products from the bloodstream. Grapes are the ultimate kidney tonic-their phytochemicals bind onto the wastes that the kidneys have trouble filtering. Like cherries, grapes are an amazing liver-cleansing food. Their phytochemicals are able to dislodge debris, processed food, & by-products that can clog up lobules in the liver. Digestive benefits: grape skins hold powerful micronutrients that expel parasites, mold & other unproductive fungi from the intestinal tract. Antioxidants such as malvidin & other anthocyanins (which explain grapes’ blue, black, dark red & purple shades) give grapes the power to fight & prevent most types of cancer. Grapes can expel radiation from the body; their amino acids such as histidine, methionine & cysteine work together with their anthocyanins to become a magnet that draws DDT & toxic heavy metals out of the liver, kidneys, spleen & other organs, plus they’re a potent antiviral for autoimmune disease, which is caused by the viral explosion. Finally, grapes are an outstanding energy food. They offer a critical boost, whether you’re an athlete, constantly on the go, or you’re a thinker-that is engaging your brain all day with cognitive tasks (& multitasking), trying to excel at a given project, or in need of fuel to come up with your next big idea.”
“When you feel isolated-living your life with little interaction or coping with shyness & yet yearning for a sense of belonging to a group that accepts you-make grapes a part of your life. Remember, grapes are bunched together. As each cluster grows on the vine, the little globes stay close to each other, connecting on both a physical & metaphysical level. Each grape adjusts to fit perfectly into place with those around it. Focus on this wonder when you select & eat grapes. It will create a sacred intention, prepare you consciously & sub-consciously to find your people, & point you towards your true home”
