Miracle Oranges

Historically, people who lived in northern climates became extremely deficient in vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium during the winter. That’s because all they had to eat after a certain point in the year were dairy, eggs, grains, and some meat—with a paltry amount of vegetables remaining and even less fruit. Before truck deliveries of produce became a mainstay of modern life, townspeople would crowd around trains that were rumored to carry the rare crate of oranges from a southern land—although when citrus was on board, most of it would go to wealthy families and town selectmen. If a stray orange did get into the hands of a less fortunate townsperson, it would be worth its weight in gold. That’s because people of the time valued oranges for what they were: miracle fruits. Today, oranges have lost their luster in the public eye.

Now people worry about citrus allergies, and dentists warn that the acid is bad for tooth enamel. Don’t get caught up in the orange outrage. The truth is that oranges (and their cousins, tangerines) are full of the coenzyme glutathione, which goes into activation because of their high content of flavonoids and limonoids. This is a relationship medical research has not yet tapped into, and one that makes oranges and tangerines a key to healing the 21st century epidemic of chronic illness. Together, glutathione, flavonoids, and limonoids fight off viruses, protect the body from radiation damage, and deactivate toxic heavy metals in the system. Oranges and tangerines are also abundant in a form of bioactive calcium you can’t get anywhere else. The body instantly absorbs this calcium, which means that these citrus beauties actually help regrow teeth, not destroy them. Their acid content is not destructive; rather, it works for you by dissolving kidney stones and gallstones.

It’s time to reconnect to that period when we appreciated oranges’ and tangerines’ true value. These citrus fruits are life giving, and they should be a foundation in the diet. The next time you walk by a navel, blood orange, Valencia, mandarin, honey Murcott, clementine, or Minneola tangelo, think about what it might have meant to an ancestor in the early1900s and rejoice that progress has given you the opportunity to bring its sweet nectar into your life.

If you have any of the following conditions, try bringing oranges and/or tangerines into your life:

Gum disease; kidney stones; strep throat; gallstones; osteoporosis; diabetes; hypoglycemia; mold exposure; adrenal fatigue; mystery infertility; posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); anxiety; depression; urinary tract infections (UTIs); arteriosclerosis; stomach and intestinal cancers; acne; hypertension; low reproductive system battery; HHV-6; cytomegalovirus (CMV); shingles; HHV-7; the undiscovered HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12; chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); fibromyalgia; multiple sclerosis (MS); lupus; Graves’ disease; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS); vertigo; lymphoma (including non-Hodgkin’s); Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mononucleosis; Hashimoto’s thyroiditis; human papilloma virus (HPV); Huntington’s disease; herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1); herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2); bursitis; carpal tunnel syndrome; tendonitis; colds; nodules

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

The juice of an orange or tangerine is like liquid sunshine. If you often feel sad, weepy, glum, or down, oranges cut through the gloom and shine a light on your life. They are the perfect food to eat when you feel sun deprived and lonely, as though there’s an empty void that needs to be filled. Oranges take out all the chill and fill you with warmth instead.

SPIRITUAL LESSON

Oranges and tangerines remind us that we sometimes overlook the most important ingredients in our lives. Every now and then, we have to think about what we push aside or forsake and reevaluate whether all of it deserved to be devalued. In the case of these fruits, you may drink only the occasional orange juice (and feel guilty when you do), snack on a clementine once a year, or try an infrequent spread of orange marmalade on toast—whereas oranges and tangerines should rightfully be a centerpiece in your diet. As you make them a bigger part of your life, look around. What else is worthy of a second glance?

TIPS

* For optimum realization of the benefits of oranges and tangerines, consume four per day.

* As a snack, drizzle raw honey over slices of orange or tangerine. The honey will increase the citrus pectin’s ability to kill off and eliminate mold, yeast, viruses, and unproductive bacteria in the gut by 50 percent.

* For a predigestive aid, try adding a squeeze of fresh orange or tangerine juice over your favorite salads and dishes. It will help ensure that you digest your meal at the best level possible.
