Pomegranates are a powerhouse healing food that can be added to all kinds of recipes to bring more nutrients and flavor. Pomegranate arils provide a fun and surprising burst of sweet juiciness as you crunch into them. They combine beautifully with the flavor and creaminess of the guacamole.

“Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts. It serves an important role in blood sugar, too, by restoring precious glucose reserves to the liver, so that the liver can release this glucose into the bloodstream as needed. This process in turn protects the adrenal glands—because if you go for several hours without eating and your liver doesn’t have glucose reserves, then your adrenals are forced to pump hormones such as cortisol into your blood to keep you going, leading to overactive adrenal glands and eventual burnout. So if you’re looking for adrenal balance and blood sugar stabilization, turn to pomegranates. Pomegranates’ high-quality glucose also makes them a brain food, helping with focus and concentration.” – Excerpt from Life-Changing Foods.

Pomegranate Guacamole

Ingredients:
2 large or 3 small avocados
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp finely chopped red or white onion
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1-2 tsp fresh finely chopped jalapeño (optional)
Juice from 1/2 lime
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds, more to serve
Sea salt, to taste (optional)

Directions:
In a medium-sized bowl, add the pitted and peeled avocados. Mash using a potato masher or a fork until the guacamole is smooth but still has a few bigger chunks.

Add all the remaining ingredients and mix together gently with a spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.

Eggnog

Eggnog is traditionally enjoyed at Christmas time, but when your Eggnog is made with healthy ingredients such as nuts, dates and spices, you can feel good about treating yourself to a glass of eggnog at special events year-round! This recipe is incredibly tasty and satisfying without any milk, cream, eggs or refined sugar, making it a great choice for anyone suffering with health symptoms or conditons.

Cashews are high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, and zinc. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins that have the ability to starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing.

Cashews are highly beneficial for lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair. Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts and contain a high amount of oleic acid, which is a heart healthy monounsaturated fat that is great for the cardiovascular system.

Eggnog (Dairy-Free & Egg-Free)

Ingredients:
1/3 cup raw cashews
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
3-4 pitted dates
1 tsp vanilla powder or alcohol-free vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp turmeric (for color)

Directions:
Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until very smooth and frothy, about 2-3 minutes. Divide between serving glasses and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Serve immediately.

Serves 2

Cinnamon is particularly good for helping diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, indi-gestion, flatulence, and arthritis. Cinnamon is known to help prevent and shorten the duration of the flu as well to eliminate congestion and mucus from the body. It is also very beneficial for lowering cholesterol and to help regulate blood sugar. It is known to help increase circulation and contains anti-clotting compounds, which makes it highly beneficial for helping to pre-vent strokes and coronary artery disease. Cinnamon helps to boost memory and cognitive function, just smelling cinnamon spice can help make you more alert and focused.

This delicious mulled wine recipe is free of alcohol but full of flavor. The spices bring a rich and robust complexity to this drink, while the grape juice, cranberry juice and maple syrup provide a sweet base to hold the flavors. Sip this delicious drink on holidays, in cold weather, or anytime you want a fun way to sneak in more healing foods.

While grapes are shunned for their high sugar content, we ought to think twice. That very sugar content in grapes helps revitalize the liver. They’re truly a longevity food, increasing the liver’s performance in every one of its over 2,000 chemical functions. The fruit acid unique to grapes is a great dissolver of gallstones— think about that the next time you eat some rather than worrying if there’s too much sugar or if they’ll make you gain weight. Weight gain is the last thing grapes create.

Alcohol-Free Mulled Wine

Ingredients:
2 cups red grape juice
3 cups cranberry juice
1/2 cup water
2 cinnamon sticks
2 Star anise
10 whole cloves
3 cardamom pods, slightly crushed
3 thick orange slices
2-3 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

Directions:
Add all ingredients to a medium-sized saucepan and simmer very gently for 30 minutes, until the flavors are infused. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes, then strain through a sieve and divide between mugs. Serve immediately.

Serves 2-3

If you remember enjoying gingerbread as a child, this smoothie might just bring some of those memories back to life. It’s creamy and full of flavor. Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or even for an easy dinner. If you are following Liver Rescue Mornings from Liver Rescue, simply omit the almond milk and use water or coconut water.

“Ginger: Helps calm spasms in the liver and regulate liver heat—it can heat up the liver, perking it up out of stagnation, or cool a very hot liver, balancing it out, depending on what’s needed. Helpful for a sluggish liver, stagnant liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Improves bile production and potency while improving the stomach’s production of hydrochloric acid. Also feeds the liver with dozens of phytochemical compounds that it can use for many of its chemical functions.

Some of ginger’s phytochemical compounds expel ammonia and rotting, putrefying food, debris, and toxins from the small intestine and colon, allowing for cleaner nutrients to enter the liver from the intestinal tract. Ginger also dislodges fat cells inside the liver, allowing that fat to break free and exit through the bile and digestive tract, sometimes by way of the gallbladder.” - excerpt from Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease

1 1/2 cup pitted firm dates
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup smooth almond butter
1 tsp vanilla powder/alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

It’s important to drink fresh celery juice alone on an empty stomach in order to receive its healing benefits. Aim for 16 ounces or more in the morning at least 15 to 30 minutes before breakfast. Otherwise—if, say, you drank your celery juice right along with your breakfast or had it with an afternoon snack—you would miss out on its full healing power. The same goes if you add anything to your celery juice, such as lemon, apple, kale, collagen, apple cider vinegar, or even water or ice. All of these additions lower or cancel out the benefits of pure, unadulterated celery juice consumed alone.

If you blend celery into your smoothie or eat celery sticks, you also won’t receive the tremendous healing benefits celery juice offers. For example, if you add celery to your smoothie, the sodium cluster salts in celery juice that are responsible for so much of the healing that people all around the globe are experiencing, won’t get to your brain. If you blend up whole celery and drink it with the fiber still in it, the cluster salts also won’t get to your brain. If you eat celery sticks instead of juicing them, drink celery juice when your stomach is full of other food, put celery in with other ingredients in a green juice, or add collagen, activated charcoal, apple cider vinegar, or any other ingredient to your celery juice, the cluster salts won’t get to your brain. This is just one of many ways these additions will rob you of the healing benefits pure celery juice can offer you.

Let’s take a look at some of the ingredients NOT to add to celery juice, but in short, this is what to add to celery juice: nothing. Keep your 16 ounces of celery juice straight.

If you have water or lemon water upon waking before your celery juice, wait at least 15 to 30 minutes to drink your plain celery juice. Then wait at least 15 to 30 minutes after your celery juice to have your breakfast.

For more information on how to drink celery juice to receive its benefits and how it works inside your body, check out Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide.

Lemon Juice

Celery juice is a one-ingredient drink. Even a juice blend of celery plus one other ingredient such as lemon juice throws off the benefits that you want when you first get up for the day. If you like other juice blends, that’s great; they’re good for you. Save them for later in the day. For your special 16-ounce celery juice on an empty stomach, make it celery only. If you purchase celery juice from stores in bottles, oftentimes they are made with both celery and lemon juice. These juices will not offer you the healing benefits you are drinking them for. Plus, there are issues with pre-bottled celery juice, too. Read about those below.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Keep it away from your celery juice. It’s one of the swiftest ways to render your celery juice completely useless; you won’t obtain a single benefit from celery juice if ACV is mixed into it. Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts, digestive enzymes, and plant hormones will be instantly destroyed. Its vitamin C will be instantly rendered unusable. Celery juice’s structure on the whole will be instantly spoiled. Because of money-driven interests and agendas, though, adding ACV to celery juice will keep being perpetuated as a great source of health. Don’t let the arguments sway you. Instead, remind yourself that when ACV hits celery juice, it oxidizes the celery juice immediately, making it go bad.

Fruit, Greens & Vegetable Juices

Just like lemon juice, adding any ingredients like kale, apple, carrot, and cucumber to your celery juice will greatly diminish its healing properties. As tempting as it is to add some kale, apple, lemon, ginger, carrot, or another food, keep that for another juice later in the day.

Water or Ice

Celery juice and plain water are so different that it’s not a good idea to mix them. This is why I advise against diluting celery juice with water or adding ice cubes to it. Regular water renders celery juice’s benefits useless. It’s also why I advise against dehydrating celery or celery juice and then reconstituting it with water. That doesn’t re-create a glass of celery juice, because regular water isn’t living.

Collagen

Collagen is one of the most disastrous items you can mix with celery juice. The minute you combine supplemental collagen with celery juice in your body, you cancel out celery juice’s benefits. Every last sodium cluster salt and enzyme in the juice reacts to the supplemental collagen negatively, as if it were a toxin. As soon as the celery juice–collagen mixture enters your mouth and stomach, the celery juice’s cluster salts attach themselves to the foreign collagen and try to rid it from the body via the intestinal tract. Trouble is, collagen’s sticky presence engulfs the sodium cluster salts, absorbing them even as the cluster salts are trying to neutralize the supplemental collagen.

There are unbelievable benefits to celery juice, and you lose those by mixing it with collagen. The juice’s sole purpose becomes trying to carry foreign collagen out through the intestinal tract. The supplemental collagen doesn’t even enter the bloodstream; the body eliminates it as waste. Any foreign collagen that does escape the intestinal tract walls gets directed to the liver, giving the organ yet one more troublemaker to sort and stow away.

Taking supplemental collagen (especially in celery juice, which should never be done) doesn’t help skin, joints, hair, and nails. The best action we can take is to support our bodies in producing their own collagen (and bile). For that, you need antioxidants, the proper vitamin B12, and the sulfur that naturally occurs in vegetables, as well as the zinc, magnesium, calcium, and silica found in foods and supplements. Along with drinking your pure celery juice regularly and detoxing the liver of its toxic load, these are the elements that truly support you. As much as you might have heard that supplementing with collagen can help with all of this, know the truth: that’s a mistaken theory, one that only ends up taking advantage of consumers.

Protein Powder and Activated Charcoal

Adding protein powder or activated charcoal to celery juice are two more trends that have been developing. Both of these products will prevent the sodium cluster salts in celery juice from providing you with their healing benefits.

HPP and Bottled Celery Juice

HPP stands for high-pressure pasteurization, and it means that rather than being freshly cold-pressed, bottled, and put on the shelf for you that day, the juice was delivered from a manufacturing plant. The pasteurization process of HPP doesn’t require heat, and this can lead to the illusion that it’s raw. Quite the contrary. Juice that’s been put through HPP has been denatured. Its cell structures have changed shape and form through this new process that hasn’t been time tested. Regular pasteurization is a heating process that’s shown its safety over the course of hundreds of years. Not that you want regularly pasteurized celery juice, either—you want it fresh and raw. Assuming that HPP means it’s raw juice is a mistaken assumption, though. In theory, it’s raw. In reality, it’s been hindered and compromised to sustain shelf life.

The reason to be wary of HPP is that it’s not going to bring you the health benefits of celery juice. I can see many people picking up HPP celery juice, trying it for a while, and then giving up because their symptoms and conditions haven’t improved. Don’t let that be you. It’s okay to drink celery juice that has been bottled that day by an in-store juice bar and put on the shelf, however it’s important to always check when that celery juice was made so it really was that day. If you’re able to, it would be even better to wait for a juice to be made fresh right in front of you, or to call ahead and organize for your juice to be made at the time you can pick it up.

Celery Tablets and Powder

Never think you’re going to get the same results from celery tablets or powders that you will from fresh celery juice. While some herbs and fruits can benefit you in dried or powdered form, these alternate forms of celery are a waste of money and do not offer anything that celery juice does. The healing benefits come from fresh, pure juiced celery. Please be aware that the Celeryforce supplement I love and have talked about multiple times is NOT a celery powder or celery tablet. This supplement doesn’t contain any celery at all and is instead a complementary supplement to drinking celery juice that you would take 30 minutes before or after celery juice.

Pomegranates are popular, known especially for being high in antioxidants. What doesn’t get enough attention is what a godsend this fruit is for dissolving gallstones and kidney stones, nodules, calcifications, and small cysts such as ganglia cysts. It also has anti-tumor properties. Each of the fruit’s many jewellike, juicy capsules (technically called arils, though better known as seeds) inside a pomegranate contains a universe. Pomegranate seeds freshly broken open—whether between your teeth or in a juicer—release the full power of each of those tiny universes to come to your aid.

When you consume fresh pomegranate, a chemical reaction occurs whenever the fruit’s acids (which are filled with phytochemicals such as anthocyanins) come into contact with the types of unhealthy hardenings formed from bile, protein buildup, and toxic forms of calcium. Immediately, they start to break down. Bringing pomegranate into your life on a regular basis is especially beneficial if you suffer from PCOS.

Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts. It serves an important role in blood sugar, too, by restoring precious glucose reserves to the liver, so that the liver can release this glucose into the bloodstream as needed. This process in turn protects the adrenal glands—because if you go for several hours without eating and your liver doesn’t have glucose reserves, then your adrenals are forced to pump hormones such as cortisol into your blood to keep you going, leading to overactive adrenal glands and eventual burnout. So if you’re looking for adrenal balance and blood sugar stabilization, turn to pomegranates. Pomegranates’ high-quality glucose also makes them a brain food, helping with focus and concentration.

Further, pomegranates contain trace minerals such as iron, manganese, potassium, and chromium that are very bioavailable and easily assimilable. Plus, consuming pomegranates helps unclog pores and hair follicles, encouraging hair growth where it’s needed and helping the skin and scalp overall. Pomegranates are amazing for regulating hormones, because they flush out toxic ones such as unproductive estrogens that contribute to cancers. This fruit also helps detoxify DDT and other pesticides, eliminate unproductive lactic acid buildup in the muscles, and clear out earwax and minimize new production of it.

CONDITIONS

If you have any of the following conditions, try bringing pomegranates into your life:

Alzheimer’s disease, insomnia, dementia, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, hypoglycemia, earwax buildup, alopecia, gallstones, kidney stones, mold exposure, nodules, calcifications, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mononucleosis, Raynaud’s syndrome, adenomas, autism, plantar fasciitis, Lyme disease, Morton’s neuroma, tumors, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

SYMPTOMS

If you have any of the following symptoms, try bringing pomegranates into your life:

Brain fog, memory loss, confusion, cysts, calcifications, disorientation, trouble focusing, dandruff, weight gain, persistent hunger, hair loss, muscle cramps, leg cramps, blood sugar imbalances, myelin nerve damage, trigeminal neuralgia, scar tissue in the liver, back pain, frozen shoulder, body pain, ear pain, eye oaters, foot drop, rib pain, foot pain, head pain, hives, inflammation, itchy skin, liver heat, neuralgia

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

Pomegranates are a critical food for the per- son who struggles with impatience on a daily basis—and doesn’t believe her or his impatience is the problem, but rather everyone else is to blame. If you know someone like this, offer her or him a pomegranate. It will shift the energy and point your companion in the direction of composure, compassion, and patience. If you feel that someone’s impatience is directed at you and it’s throwing you off your game, turn to pomegranates to help you keep your equanimity and focus.

SPIRITUAL LESSON

When you’re dealing with a pomegranate, there’s not much you can do to contain the mess. As careful as you may be, inevitably an aril bursts at just the wrong moment, and you end up with red stains on your carpet, clothes, countertop, walls, or fingers. We’ve all learned not to wear a silk blouse or tie when excavating a pomegranate. Opening a pomegranate requires us to put on our old jeans and a ragged sweatshirt—creative wear, the same clothes we’d wear if we were going to paint—and to approach the activity knowing it’s going to get messy (and that it’s well worth the reward). Consider this the next time a situation presents you with the opportunity for creativity and a rewarding outcome. Are you thinking of walking away because it could get messy? Or are you about to jump in head first without being prepared? Pomegranates teach us both to brace for mess and embrace it, if we want to get the most out of what comes our way.

TIPS

* Eat one or more pomegranates daily to reap the most benefits.

* Get creative with how you use pomegranates. You can sprinkle the little seeds anywhere—on salads, hummus, guacamole, or even on top of a stir-fry you’ve just cooked.

* If you’re concerned about excessive hunger, overeating, and/or weight gain, eat pomegranate seeds before a meal as an appetite suppressant.

Susan was experiencing stomach pain, vomiting, shortness of breath, and chronic fatigue, and wasn’t able to get out of bed in the morning to take care of her two young kids. At rock bottom one night, she stumbled upon Medical Medium information. Watch Susan share how this information changed her life. Thank you Susan for sharing and inspiring others! 

The same virus—Epstein-Barr virus—that causes so many other conditions can also cause fatigue. This symptom can occur at different stages of EBV. Early on, during the mono phase, fatigue can result as your immune system puts its energy into fighting your first active, present, and ready-to-go-into-action viral blood infection. Once EBV is in the organs, a second type of fatigue—neurological fatigue—can occur from the virus releasing its neurotoxins. Neurological fatigue is frequently mistaken for adrenal fatigue, though they are truly distinct. Neurological fatigue and adrenal fatigue can occur either separately or at the same time, because one has to do with the nervous system and the other with the endocrine system.

Adrenal fatigue is a real and legitimate condition—there’s a reason that I devoted a chapter to it in Medical Medium. Still, we must be careful not to identify every case of fatigue as adrenal fatigue—which is what’s happening in many medical communities today. Adrenal fatigue as the across-the-board answer is distracting from the truth, which is that late-stage Epstein-Barr virus is targeting the central nervous systems of countless people. Viral neurotoxins are flooding their systems, creating an undetectable viral encephalitis (brain inflammation) that creates irritated, lethargic, sensitive nerves throughout the body and can get in the way of life in devastating ways.

This cranberry water is a simple and perfect balance of tart and sweet. It’s easy to make, beautiful to look at, and a delicious way to bring the amazing properties of cranberries into your day.

“The anthocyanin in cranberries is multifaceted, as it does more than one job for your liver. Not only does it prevent oxidation in cells; it helps prevent cells from dying in general of toxic overload. It also removes and breaks free a variety of troublemakers, including those inherited from long past in the family line. The harsh fruit acid 
in cranberries that causes the mouth to pucker strips the cell membranes off pathogens, most especially bacteria. The vitamin C in cranberries holds similarities to the rare vitamin C in tomatoes in that it increases the liver’s immune system strength.” – excerpt from Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease
