I’ve been loving my new Omega vsj843r Low-Speed Juicer! 🍊🍍🌿🍎🍐🍇🍏
The consistency of juice is perfect and so smooth and the clean up is super easy! It’s important to get a low-speed juicer as it ensures that the juice doesn’t oxidize and heat up where vital enzymes and nutrients can be lost. Juicing has been such a huge tool in my healing process as it’s super important to get lots of hydration from the alkaline goodness that are in plants! Juicing allows healing from the inside out because you’re getting a great dose of dense nutrients to help hydrate the old waste in the body, cleanse and heal! I notice when I juice more consistently and get a good quantity in daily, my skin feels much softer and hydrated. I love to do celery juice first thing in the morning, then move on to a fruit juice like my current fave, organic Fuji apple, and lime!
💚I love having fresh herbs on hand in my kitchen, and this is the best way I’ve found in storing them! 🌿🌱🍃☘️
Simply cut off the bottoms, place in a glass cup with water and keep it in the front of the fridge. If the herbs go too far to the back they can get too cold…I’ve had herbs get accidentally pushed back too far and then when I looked for them the leaves were frozen! 😟 This simple method can keep your herbs fresh for weeks, just keep replenishing the water very few days 👍🏽. I have cilantro pictured here and I love to use it in my guacamole, salads, curries, green juices (check out the juicer I love to use HERE), soups and cooking where cilantro is called in the recipe.
Cilantro is a heavy metal detoxifier, rich in antioxidants, and has vitamins such as: vitamin A, C, K & B vitamins and minerals such as: potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, and magnesium! I also love to use parsley, mint, basil, thyme, oregano and more! What are your fave herbs to use?
This blend is soooo delicious y’all! So I freshly pressed 4 oranges (got about 16 oz) and in my vitamix I blended up half a small beet with a knob of ginger and turmeric with a little bit of water, strained it, and then added to my 🍊orange juice! I definitely saved the pulp from the beet blend and guess what…I added it to my smoothie later on of wild blueberries x dark red cherries🍒 x bananas🍌 and water….OMG it tastes amazing! Don’t waste that goodness, just throw it in a smoothie! Super rich in anti-inflammatory properties and dense nutrition!

😍 DID YOU KNOW…”The Curcumin in Turmeric is the component that contains phytochemical compounds that calm the liver, resulting in fewer spasms. It helps to prepare & purify the blood before it enters the liver so that blood arrives with fewer toxins. Its healing properties ignite healing heat in a stagnant, sluggish liver resulting in less disease” info from The Medical Medium
I can’t believe 10 years have passed since my Hodgkin’s Lymphoma stage 3b diagnosis! I thank God everyday that He brought me through, & stronger than ever, with a deep passion for natural healing🙏🏽.
I mark today as my 10th year cancer free, as this was the day that I completed my very last chemo treatment. I did 6 months of chemo, 2x a month. I try to not live with regrets, & I must admit, it’s something that I still struggle with even ten years later…the regret of not looking towards alternative routes of healing instead of using chemo (which my oncologist told me has a half life of 10-12 years in the body!). I WISH I had all of knowledge that I have now about healing from the inside out & I WISH I was in the right head space to do so. I just know in my gut that 23 years of topical steroid usefor eczema at the time contributed to the cancer. Plus just not taking care of my health in general, eating terribly etc. Clearly in retrospect I would’ve done things much different, BUT I’ve learned that everything happens the way it should, in its own divine time, in its own way. Some background to my diagnosis…I was 23 years old, I had graduated college the year before, the stress of school really took its toll on my body & my skin & overall health was going downhill fast. It’s like I could feel it the moment I graduated…like I was just holding out the last couple of months, struggling to make it through. I didn’t know anything about stopping the steroids and looking towards natural routes of healing, I had no intention of living a healthy lifestyle…I became reclusive because of the way my skin looked as it was getting worse and it was hard for me to even look in the mirror, hence why I had no idea of the lump growing in my clavicle. It was only until I went for a regular check up with a new primary care doc did she point out the lump. Many needle biopsies at the ENT doc later which were inconclusive, then to surgery of the removal of the golf ball sized mass which then led to the diagnosis of cancer.
My world stopped, in disbelief I felt like once again my body was broken. I had a mediport put into my chest to administer chemo…which my body literally pushed out weeks later! It’s like my body was screaming to me that it didn’t want chemo, & to find another way! I then had to have multiple PICC lines in my arms to take the chemo (multiple because my skin continually got infected from the PICC lines). Thank the Lord I didn’t feel sick, not once during chemo & that I didn’t lose all of my hair, just some of it, & it came back thicker than before! Everyone told me “you’ll be stronger after all of this” & it’s so true! In times of fear, I’ve told myself “if I can get through cancer like a boss then I can get through anything!” Although it took me 3 more years to learn about the danger of topical steroids, within that time I was seeking a better way of living, which allowed me to gradually change my lifestyle to a healthier one. I continued to hunger for knowledge and when I learned about naturally healing eczema I knew it was the direction I needed to be in. If you are dealing with a health issue, and/or cancer I highly recommend looking into alternative treatments, using food as medicine. Become knowledgeable on all of the resources out there…look into the Gerson Therapy, movies like The Truth About Cancer, What the Health, Forks Over Knives, books like The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, and amazing doctors like Dr.Greger are all full of great info to get you on the right path. I now know of how amazing our bodies are at self healing, that anything is possible and we just need to give the body the right tools to help it heal.
I’m cancer free and I give all thanks to God for getting me through & for continuing to repair my body! 💙
Getting my electrolytes in at Jax Veg Fest (vegan outdoor festival) yesterday! Hydration is KEY to healing and coconuts are wonderful for that! Coconuts are rich in potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium.
💚 DID YOU KNOW…..
🥥Helps replenish Electrolytes – Because coconut water is high in potassium, and such a great electrolyte replacement, it has even been used for IV hydration in certain emergency situations.
🥥Lowers high blood pressure – The potassium in coconut water counteracts the effect of sodium in the body, helping lower blood pressure.
🥥Reduces cholesterol – Researchers believe that the benefit of potassium, calcium and magnesium content in coconut water, all electrolytes that play a role in helping maintain heart health can help reduce cholesterol levels.
🥥Reduces stress & muscle tension – Some of the electrolytes found in coconut water, specifically calcium and magnesium, may help with stress and muscle tension. Adequate calcium intakes may help keep our all our muscles relaxed. Magnesium has been nicknamed the “relaxation” mineral. Its primary function is in the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of the nervous system that helps us relax. It also helps with the formation of serotonin, the “feel good hormone.”
💚🥥💚🥥 Get your hydration in with fresh coconuts! If you can’t find them fresh, always look for brands that are refrigerated without any preservatives in them…it should only say “coconut water” on the ingredients list.🌴
I’m so excited to check out Medical Medium’s new book Liver Rescue!🍎
Our livers work so hard for us to cleanse out the toxins in our daily lives from heavy metals, medication, drugs, alcohol, pesticides, viruses, old toxins from generations ago that have been passed down etc… Our livers can become sluggish from these toxins and from high fat and high protein diets, and it’s so important for us to give it some personal attention and allow it to cleanse and repair.💚
We all know for eczema, our internal elimination channels aren’t working optimally, so the burden is left on the skin (the largest elimination organ) to filter out. It’s critical for us to cleanse from the inside out, get our detox organs working the way they are intended to and in turn, the skin will heal! Check out this awesome info below from Anthony Williams and make sure to follow his instagram page for more gems on reclaiming your health!
I can’t wait to get into this book and use the super effective Ultimate Detox System (which focuses on detoxing the liver) alongside it! This system is the secret weapon of liver detoxing that is the first of its kind in the world! This system was crafted by the brilliant biochemist Dr. Chris Shade and has been over a decade in the making! It’s a 2-step system that supports the elimination of toxins and heavy metals from your body while minimizing their redistribution and reabsorption. It’s best to do the liver detox system in conjunction with taking the nano-enhanced liposomal hemp oil that I highly recommend as it puts the body in balance and takes you out of that constant “fight or flight” mode and puts us in a “rest, repair and digest” state where healing can finally take place!

🍎In the mood for apple pie?! 🥧Try out this super simple, yummy, healthy, sweet snack that legit tastes just like caramelly apple pie! 😋 I’ve simply sliced some organic gala apples and smushed some ooey gooey pitted dates on top with a sprinkling of cinnamon! This post is in honour of The Medical Medium ‘s apple challenge! Make sure to get more than one apple in a day for these amazing health benefits…
🍎Apples: Provide living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when dehydration or dirty blood syndrome occurs. The fruit acids in apples help cleanse the liver by dispersing toxic films that build up inside its storage banks. Apples starve out bacteria, yeast, mold, other funguses, and viruses from the intestinal tract and liver. Great for dissolving gallstones. Apples also detox heavy metals and radiation from the body.
Dates: The intestinal tract builds up mucus due to low hydrochloric acid and bile production, and that can slow down the absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream. Dates expel and eliminate mucus, especially that produced by pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, from the colon. The sugars in dates feed the liver; they’re a great source of glucose for recovery and restoration that allows the liver to maximize its over 2,000 chemical functions.
🍎🍎🍎Lemme know if you try out this tasty sweet snack and how you liked it! 😜
