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

Tya from Ohio:
“I am so happy that I made this investment. During the class, I was able to join a support network of other people who are dealing with eczema and other skin issues. The class is more than just education, even though the education I received on how to ‘treat’ my skin issues was superb. The class gave me hope that I could actually have my life back and clear skin. I’ve been encouraged to treat the whole person – mind, body & spirit. I’ve learned so much & I do believe it is helping me to be a healthier person. In addition, the coaches are awesome. They will answer your questions outside of the conference calls. This is better than any doctors visit I’ve ever been to. I know I’m on the road to clear skin. Thank you Jen & Abby for all your help!”
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! 💙
😜🍌Perfectly ripened bananas🍌😜 Make sure to always eat bananas nice & spotty because they are even better for the digestive tract and are super sweet! I’ll freeze them at this stage and blend for smoothies & thicknice cream! INFO: Never be afraid of the sugars in bananas, it’s totally different from the cane sugar & other processed sweeteners in cookies, cakes & doughnuts. Unlike processed sugar, the fruit sugar in bananas is bonded to critical life-supporting trace minerals such as manganese, selenium, copper, boron & molybdenum & a large amount of minerals such as potassium, which is one of the most critical nutrients for neurotransmitter function. Bananas are also high in amino acids that work with potassium as a catalyst for abundant electrolyte production. They are full of fiber, pulp & water & their sugar content is the very reason bananas have rich supplies of antioxidants, vitamins & other phytonutrients to help us fight disease. They are a powerful antiviral food, & high in tryptophan which can soothe sleep disorders, create calm, reduce anxiety & alleviate depression. And those who worry about Candida have no reason to fear bananas because they are the ultimate fungus destroyers, removing unproductive bacteria while feeding beneficial microorganisms in the intestinal tract. This also makes them b12 enhancing, because microbes in the gut can interrupt the ileum’s rightful process of producing b12. They are amazing digestive aids because they are antispasmodic on hyperactive colons, & they can alleviate gastric cramps and stress-related gastrointestinal diseases. They can help reverse colitis, Crohn’s and IBS. And lastly, they are great blood stabilizers, have stress-assist phytochemicals to get you through your day & help you balance your weight.
