Cravings? Who would have thought!!!

The more I learn about bananas, the more I am blown away!

bananas

Anthony Williams, the Medical Medium, shares a lot about bananas.  If you are like me you will also be impressed with bananas after reading this!

Here is an excerpt, but do yourself a favor and  read the entire post of his (link at bottom of this article):

“Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.

Bananas contain powerful anti-fungal and antibiotic compounds as well as protease inhibitors which can help stop viruses in their tracts. This makes them highly beneficial for chronic illnesses such as shingles, epstein barr, parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and lupus. Bananas are also particularly good for lowering blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological disorders, diarrhea, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, chron’s disease, stroke, and kidney, colon, and lung cancers.

Bananas contain high levels of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) which along with insulin helps to promote nutrient absorption and assimilation. Bananas support the natural acidophilus bacteria in the bowel which helps promote a healthy and functional digestive tract as well as keep the immune system healthy and strong. Bananas can prevent ulcers by strengthening the surface cells of the stomach lining which helps to create a thicker barrier against digestive acid and pepsin-the two main causes of ulcers. Bananas are also an excellent food for athletes as they can help replenish energy and revitalize the body instantly.”

Personally, I am an extremely heavy thinker so the part about it being good for heavy thinkers really caught my eye. One of the big things I have noticed both for myself and my clients, is that when we eat more bananas and other fruits of any kind, we no longer crave sweet things. This is due to the fact that our body and brain get the natural sugars that they need to function and that helps to alleviate cravings. Cravings come about for a reason!

I do hope you incorporate more bananas into your daily diet. It’s especially beneficial for the children and the elderly as they are both easy to eat and easy to assimilate.

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie – Day 1

heavy metal detox smoothie

I did it! Today I started my first day of a Heavy Metal Detox protocol that involves using a smoothie that helps to carry the heavy metals out of the body. The select combination of ingredients together, act as a team. Each one holding the metals and passing them along on their way out.

My first sips were hmmm but by the end of the jar I was at mmmmm, which makes me very happy.

Heavy metals, such as mercury lead, cadmium, and aluminum, accumulate in the body over time and are suspected of triggering dangerous conditions like heart disease, thyroid problems, dementia, neurological conditions, autism, infertility, birth defects and even bi-polar!

The more I go down the health and nutrition rabbit hole, the more these heavy metals and their dangers pop up in my radar, so I thought I would bite the bullet and try the detox, and share the recipe! It’s always good to share your recipes. 🙂

One of my favorite sources for stuff like this is Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium.  This was the recipe I did today and here is a link to his blog post on it.

I really feel this will be easy to add into my daily routine. The most challenging part will be making sure I always have enough cilantro and fresh or frozen WILD blueberries on hand.  The blueberries must be wild. I will touch on that in another blog post in the future but just trust me on this one.

Someone today asked me what lead me to want/need to start doing this? My answer was that I suspect we all have been exposed to these heavy metals and that it is just a good idea to do. 🙂 And you never lose when you are adding in healthy ingredients into your diet, like those that are in this smoothie.
