It doesn’t get more simple or satisfying than this rich zucchini soup. Rustic and delicious, this soup is perfect eaten alone or as a side dish alongside any dinner meal.
Zucchini is a highly alkaline food that is one of the mildest and easiest vegetables to digest. Zucchini is a great source of vitamin A, C, & B-complex as well as minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, and manganese. It is high in fiber and low in calories which makes it a great weight loss food and helps to reduce constipation and bloating.
Zucchini is rich in poly-phenolic antioxidants which are essential in helping to protect the body from aging, illness, and disease. Zucchini is also a good source of potassium which is an important intra-cellular electrolyte that helps to maintain fluid balance and normalize blood pressure.
This soup is the perfect way to utilize and enjoy any extra zucchini in your home or garden.
8 zucchini, cubed
2 cloves garlic
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp olive oil
1/8 tsp or one dash each of sage and thyme
Steam zucchini and garlic until tender, approximately 5-10 minutes. Strain and place into high speed blender with the remaining ingredients. Blend until well combined. Serve and enjoy!

Eye health conditions have many different causes that vary dependent on the symptoms you’re dealing with, and what else is going on in your body. Many of them can heal. However there are some commonalities across the different types of conditions too.
Whenever there is an eye health condition, there will also be a lack of antioxidants, mineral deficiencies, and/or free radicals in the body from oxidizing heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxins. Anyone with eye health issues would benefit from increasing the antioxidants and minerals in their diet by eating more fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, and wild foods.
This condition is typically caused by an antioxidant and mineral deficiency so it’s important to focus on bringing in more of these nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables.
When it’s not macular degeneration, blurry eyes can be a neurological problem that’s caused by a number of other issues like blood toxicity, a liver condition, heavy metal toxicity, or viral issues in the liver that affect the central nervous system.It can also be from blood sugar issues like hypoglycemia, inconsistent blood sugar issues, glucose deficiency, and more. Diabetic conditions develop from the adrenals and liver, which can lead to blurry vision. It’s important to increase fruits and vegetables and consider lowering animal foods. You can apply the information in the Adrenal Fatigue chapter of my book Medical Medium and my suggestions on supporting the liver.
If a child needs glasses early in their life, it’s typically from mercury they have inherited from generations of the family live. You can read my book Medical Medium for more information on this. Mercury disorientates the eyes, throwing off the eye muscles, eye responses, and some of the nerves behind the eye. Children can need glasses overnight whereas some older people need glasses later in life from a slower rate of toxic mercury build up over time.
A specific variety of Epstein-Barr virus causes glaucoma. This variety may not cause many health challenges other than some fatigue until someone is much older when they can get glaucoma. An anti-viral protocol for EBV like the one described in my book is important.
This symptom is typically caused by the Shingles virus. You may even have tingling, tickling sensations on the sides of the face which causes your eyes to burn, squint, or tingle. The Shingles protocol I outline in my book is very important.
White or black floating spots in your vision are caused by a lot of neurotoxins floating around in the body from Epstein-Barr virus. EBV shortcuts currents and electrical currents that go to the eye causing these floaters.
If you have trigeminal neuralgia pain up the neck and jaw, you might get told you have TMJ. It can also run to the eye causing pain from inflamed nerves, which is really caused by Shingles.
Eye Related Migraines
These painful migraines are due to a combination of viral issues and heavy metal toxicity. You can follow my protocols for both of these to help recover your health.
The main culprit causing styes is a bacterial infection from streptococcus. Strep sits dormant in the sinuses and comes into the eyes when the immune system is down. You can also get styes when you pick up a fresh strain of strep from dirty places. Also, when you pick up a flu virus, it can feed any congestion in the body and cause an outbreak of strep. Staph bacteria can be the other cause of styes.
Optic Nerve Issues
This is a viral issue where typically only one eye is affected. An antiviral approach with lots of fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, wild foods, and targeted supplements can help.
The real cause of cataracts is exposure to pesticides and herbicides and old DDT stored in your body that’s been inherited over the generations. I talk more about this in my book Medical Medium and Life-Changing Foods. You can follow the advice in these books and also do your best to switch to an organic diet.
This is mostly caused from adrenal health issues. You can support your adrenals by grazing every 1.5 to 2 hours. Watch my video for some perfectly balanced adrenal snack ideas.
Some of the most healing foods for eye health conditions include wild blueberries, mangos, asparagus, oranges, avocado, parsley, celery juice, saffron, fennel, spinach, winter squash, carrots, and sweet potatoes.
Some of the most healing supplements for eye health conditions include Hawaiian spirulina, barley grass juice extract powder, elderberry tea, eyebright, ginkgo biloba, nettle leaf, ester C, zinc, and selenium.
Take the information you’ve learned in this article and radio show and consider applying it to help support your eye health. Many eye conditions can heal, and now you have the information on many of the true causes to help you decide what action to take next. If you’re not sure where to start, begin with some of the healing foods and work your way from there. Reference my books and the radio show for more detailed information and take it one day at a time. I support you and I’m with you.

Injuries can seem pretty black and white. You get into a car accident and hurt your neck, or you slip on a wet surface, fall, and break or sprain your ankle. Injuries happen every day and they are a normal and common part of life.
What’s not so straightforward is when someone injures themselves but just doesn’t recover well. Or the injury hangs around for years causing more pain and immobility. Or maybe the injury is worse after surgery. Meanwhile someone else may be recovered in a week and have some pain, but soon feel good as new.
There’s also mysterious injuries that can occur. You may not have something physically apparent that your doctor or specialist can see, but you’re still in pain and injured. Or maybe tests show a past injury has healed but there’s still pain.
Why do some people heal easily and others don’t?
The difference between these scenarios is what else is going on with the person’s health. If someone has a chronic illness that the body is already working hard to deal with, it becomes much harder to heal an injury.
Generally when healing, timing and pain are not as in correct proportion to the injury, it means there is an underlying viral condition that is creating more of a problem than the injury alone would. If someone has a viral condition and then experiences a huge rush of corrosive adrenaline from an injury, the virus could take a stronger hold.
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and the Shingles virus (of which they are many varieties of both) are typically the viruses behind viral injury pain. Standard knee surgeries and injuries for example can be especially troublesome for someone who has EBV. Shingles can be the reason for frozen shoulders, shoulder and neck, paralysis, and more. Simply turning your neck when you have active Shingles can lead to an injury that causes pain. These are just a few examples of viral injuries.
Injuries also become worse if you’re eating foods that feed viruses. Foods like eggs, dairy, and more. The viral inflammation increases and affects the injury pain and recovery. You can read more about this in-depth in my book Medical Medium.
Getting injuries is so frustrating but it’s a part of life for almost everyone and we have to keep a light heart and humor as much as possible with injuries. Frustration and anger tightens up the muscles and the nerves so need to stay light hearted and as calm as possible.
Simple Steps To Heal Injuries
1. Warm and Cold Packs
The simple technique of placing hot and cold packs on injured and chronically inflamed areas is very effective, but often overlooked or ignored. To treat an injured area like your back or neck, place a warm pack
against the area for 30 minutes in the morning to loosen the muscles. The over the day and evening, place a cold pack against the area for 30 minutes. Do this two times. The cold pack trains the nerves to calm down and reduce inflammation so they don’t get more inflamed, crack, and harden. It’s important to follow this schedule of warm and cold packs as closely as possible. It can make all the difference in your recovery.
2. Supports and Braces
Supports, braces, crutches, and walking sticks allow some of the pressure to be taken off the body and enable and speed up the healing process. Your muscles will still move a little bit while also helping your body to heal.
3. Gentle Movement
Most injured areas need a little bit of movement. Just a tiny bit of movement like gentle walking (if possible) or simple movements back and forth a few times can help recovery, even if it’s a little bit uncomfortable or painful. You need to find the right amount of gentle movement that moves the area just a little bit, while not causing too much pain. When it comes to ankle injuries, it’s important to stay off them right away after the injury. You can put a tiny bit of weight on it here and there to still move the area.
4. Healing Foods
GIven chronic injuries are typically due to an underlying virus, it’s critical to stop giving the virus the foods it feeds on, like dairy and eggs. I cover these foods in detail in my book Medical Medium. Bring in significantly more fruits and vegetables to replace these foods. Top healing foods for viral inflammation and injuries include leafy greens kale, spinach,arugula, mesclun mix, broccoli, oranges, wild blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, sweet potato, winter squash, tomatoes, asparagus, sea vegetables like dulse, kelp, and nori, sesame seeds, and grapes.
5. Healing Supplements
Certain supplements help injuries to heal more quickly and effectively, target viral inflammation, and/or strengthen the immune system. Some of my preferred supplements for injuries include B12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, zinc, vitamin C, Orgono G5 Siliplant silica, glucosamine, MSM, plant based omega 3’s, nettle leaf, Natural Calm magnesium, magnesium glycinate, Hawaiian spirulina, cat’s claw, lemon balm, and olive leaf.
6. Believe You Can Heal
Your body responds to your thoughts. Start thinking about how your body is working hard for you and healing you. The more you focus on that, the more your body’s healing processes will be activated.

We've been receiving a lot of questions about the Light Blast that I give the audience at the Medical Medium Live events. Questions about what it is, how it works, and what it’s helpful for. Today I want to share some more information and a video with you about this gift I was given from Spirit.
When I received my gift at age four from Spirit of Compassion, I was given the ability to know what is wrong with the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of any person, and how they can heal. At the same time I was given the ability to ask Spirit of Compassion to bring healing, sacred Light down from Heaven and send it through anyone around me so that their body’s healing process can be ignited. This Light Blast also begins to remove old wounds, injuries and hardships that are caused by having our trust broken many times over our lives. The Light Blast is truly a miraculous gift from Spirit, and I’ve witnessed its effects on people around me over and over again.
To learn more about the Light Blast and how I received this gift, watch the video.

Eczema and psoriasis can cause an incredible amount of suffering and debilitation for the millions of people it affects. And yet the answers for how to heal from these conditions aren’t even close to being discovered by medical science and medical research.
Eczema and psoriasis are truly medical mysteries. Not only are their causes unknown, there’s also many varieties of eczema and psoriasis that medical science isn’t aware of. There’s not just a handful of varieties of eczema and psoriasis as currently believed, there’s over 100 of each. With so little understanding of the truth, the treatment options for someone suffering with eczema and psoriasis are also extremely limited and don’t heal the real cause.
The True Cause Of Eczema and Psoriasis
The real cause of eczema and psoriasis stems from the liver. However it’s not a liver disease that can be easily detected with liver tests.
There are a specific group of toxins that are not known to conventional or alternative medicine and won’t be singled out for another 30 years or more, which will then be called dermatoxins. These dermatoxins are highly inflammatory toxins released from the liver that only come out through the skin and damage the derma. The skin breaks and bleeds as it tries to eliminate the toxins.
Dermatoxins are created by a pathogen that has made its home in the liver. The pathogen consumes and eliminates copper and this is what creates the dermatoxin that leads to eczema and psoriasis. The copper the pathogen feeds on in the liver is very old copper from generations ago, specifically from the pesticide DDT from 1874 onwards. There were crude early versions of DDT before the 1930’s variety of DDT that is well known. Previous to 1874, eczema and psoriasis was practically unknown. Not only does the copper feed the pathogen, it also stops the DDT from degrading, so eczema and psoriasis doesn’t go away.
The condition is then made worse if someone also has a bad diet that burdens the liver even more, and/or they continue to be exposed to more copper from old copper pipes or pesticides on food or in the environment.
Healing From Eczema & Psoriasis
It’s very possible to heal eczema and psoriasis and be free of it. Now you know the true cause, you can move forward in the right direction.
Firstly, it’s very important to eat as much organic food as you can to limit even more pesticide toxicity. Avoid spraying your lawns and garden too, and avoid using insecticides in your home. Secondly, because the dermatoxins stem from a very overburdened and hard working liver, it’s very important to support the liver by focusing as much as possible on a plant based diet that is low in fat at least during the most difficult times of the condition. Once you’ve recovered, you can choose the healthiest diet that you feel is right for you. It’s also important to eliminate grains, eggs, dairy, canola oil, soy and corn. The 28 Day Healing Cleanse in my book Medical Medium is ideal or these conditions.
There are many wonderful healing foods to support healing from eczema and psoriasis. Foods to focus on daily include wild blueberries, papaya, pears, watermelon and its seeds, kale, arugula, sprouts, lettuces like romaine, red and green leaf, and butter leaf, avocado, sweet potatoes, winter squashes, burdock root, and hemp seeds.
Supplements and herbs that are very helpful include fresh aloe water, zinc, B complex, MSM, Mary Ruth Organics brand of multivitamins, minerals and probiotics, curcumin, skullcap tincture, calendula, peppermint tea, rosehip tea, nettle leaf tea, chamomile tea, and burdock root tea. You can find many of my preferred suppliers of these supplements, herbs and teas here.
The true cause of cystic acne is a chronic streptococcus infection in the body, so an antibacterial regime is necessary for healing. The medical world generally believes acne is a hormonal issue. It’s not hormones, but when we are hormonal in any way at certain stages or cycles of life, our immune system is weaker and strep can take advantage of this and proliferate greatly. This is what causes acne during these times.
To lower the strep in your body there are certain healing foods and supplements to focus on. The best foods include wild blueberries, lettuces, avocado, onions, garlic, lemon, and orange. It’s also critical to stay away from grains, eggs, dairy, soy, and canola oil.
The best supplements include zinc, periodic goldenseal, fresh thyme tea, lemon balm tea or tincture, sovereign silver, and lots of vitamin C like Ester C. You can find many of my preferred suppliers of these supplements, herbs and teas here.
Healing is possible for those people suffering with eczema, psoriasis, and cystic acne. Listen to the radio show and apply the information I share consistently. It takes time to heal the liver, so give it time and have patience. Healing from eczema and psoriasis specifically is cyclical, meaning it’s normal to have rash cycles on and off as you heal. Keep going and add in more of the healing foods and supplements as you’re able. Consult with your doctor or practitioner for support if you like. Streptococcus can be completely wiped from the body over time, leaving you free of acne. There is a way out for you. Take it one day at a time and keep moving forward.
