“Tomatoes harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver admires: the liver uses it to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely, smoothly, and efficiently. The fruit acids in tomatoes help keep the gallbladder healthy, helping rid sludge from the gallbladder and even reduce gallstone size. Even poorly grown tomatoes have a high mineral content. These minerals often get to the deep, inner core of the liver, helping prevent disease where it commonly starts for people.” – Excerpt from Liver Rescue.

Critical Clean Carbohydrates (CCC) is the name I have given to the healthy carbohydrates that provide our organs, tissues, muscles, and cells with the glucose they need to help us stay alive and thrive.

CCC are:

• Fruit
• Raw Honey
• Potatoes and sweet potatoes
• Winter squash
• Coconut water

The critical glucose we get from CCC:

• Protects the nervous system
• Stops the brain from shrinking
• Builds muscles
• Protects the heart
• Is vital for liver function
• Protects the adrenals
• Helps you cope with stress
• Is critical for healing
• Feeds every cell in the body

We all need CCC. Without glucose, we won’t stay alive. Unfortunately, so many people are dealing with low glucose and glycogen reserves and it’s affecting their health without them knowing. How do we run out of the liver’s glucose and its stored version, glycogen? An overabundance of stress to the liver, which can come from many different sources. Plus, even if you’re eating what seems like enough CCC, there’s also obstacles to glucose absorption, which almost everyone faces due to the diets we have grown up on and the way we are told to eat today, such as the hyper focus on including fats and eating a high-fat diet (which is synonymous with a high-protein diet). This way of eating blocks critical glucose absorption. This is one reason why all the cleanses I offer in the new book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune, are designed to reduce fat consumption while emphasizing CCC. This is one key secret to facilitating deep healing.

We often hear that carbohydrates are the enemy and that they should be avoided, and when it comes to unproductive carbohydrates, refined sugars, and processed foods, it is indeed important to avoid them. But people are being told every day to drastically lower or even remove carbs and sugar from their diet altogether. The trouble is that this advice will be indiscriminating. Natural sugars and other healthy carbs from foods such as fruit, honey, winter squash, and potatoes will be counted as ones you don’t want in your life, when the truth is that they’re CCC; they contain some of the exact healing elements you most need.

One of the most crucial parts of healing is bringing an abundance of the CCC into your diet every day. In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share with you exactly how to bring CCC into your diet and how to use them to help you heal. There are a range of cleanse options inside Cleanse To Heal, including three versions of my nine day 3:6:9 Cleanse, an anti-bug cleanse, a morning cleanse, a heavy metal detox cleanse, and a mono eating cleanse. There’s healing information and tools for everyone and for all kinds of health problems in these pages. And all of them show you how to incorporate CCC to help you heal.

I have watched tens of thousands of people who were cautious or afraid of carbohydrates bring these right kinds of enriching carbohydrates into their life in the ways I recommend. They have witnessed for themselves the incredible healing these foods can bring–along with the other Medical Medium information–from all kinds of symptoms and conditions, including SIBO, acne, bloating, weight problems, diabetes, blood sugar problems, eczema, colitis, anxiety, depression, addictions, reproductive issues, infertility, and many more. One of the most powerful ways you can help yourself and your family heal is by making Critical Clean Carbohydrates your best friend. The bonus is that they taste delicious!

I highly recommend reading Cleanse to Heal so that you can understand how to bring CCC into your life and how to cleanse your body the right way. The truth is that everyone on planet Earth needs help in today’s world due to the toxic exposures we face–many of which are hidden–and those we are born into this world with. Even if you’re not experiencing a symptom or condition right now, you no doubt know someone who is, and unfortunately, things are only heading in a worse direction as pathogens and toxic exposures are increasing.

The way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to hold the truth in your hands about what we are up against, what really causes symptoms and conditions, and very importantly, how to heal from them. Medical research and science don’t have the answers yet so it’s never been more vital for you to be your own health expert and to have this wisdom for those you care about or others who come your way in the future. This is what you’ll find lovingly laid out for you in Cleanse to Heal. I’m honored and touched to have you here in this community of empowered women and men who are taking charge of their own health. We are rising up an army of light together.

A healthy, low-fat version of a classic favorite. Dig in to crispy baked tostadas with all the right spices, served with fresh tomato salsa, shredded lettuce, and a squeeze of lime. These tostadas are full of flavor and fun to eat!

Tomatoes: Harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver uses to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely, smoothly, and efficiently. The fruit acids in tomatoes help keep the gallbladder healthy, helping rid sludge from the gallbladder and even reduce gallstone size.

Lettuce: An extremely cleansing tool for your liver that you can apply on a daily basis. The leafy outer greens of lettuce provide dozens of micronutrients for the liver to stay healthy and balanced, while the core of the lettuce, down closer to the root, provides milky chemical compounds that act as a purging mechanism for it.

Black Bean Tostada

Ingredients:
4-5 small gluten & corn free tortillas
1 1/2 cups black beans
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder (optional)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Sea salt, to taste (optional)
1 cup fresh shredded lettuce, to serve
1/2 cup chopped tomato, to serve
Lime juice, to serve
1/2 cup fresh tomato salsa, to serve

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F. Place the tortillas in the oven, straight on the rack, and bake for 2-4 minutes, until browned and crispy. Keep a close eye on them since they burn very quickly. When crisp, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Add the black beans, water, lime juice, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, chili powder, ground cumin and sea salt (if using) to a saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer the beans uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the water has evaporated. Mash with fork or blend with a hand blender to desired consistency.

To serve, divide the black bean mash between tostadas and top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, tomato salsa and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve immediately.

“The ideal amount of celery juice for most adults is a minimum of 16 ounces per day. Not that you have to or necessarily want to start with 16 ounces the first time you try it. Feel free to work your way up, starting with 4 or 8 ounces if you’re sensitive and from there increasing it a little every day as you get used to it. Once you’re ready, it is a good idea to commit to those 16 ounces as a minimum. Why? Because most people have more than a few health obstacles to overcome.

The celery juice must travel quite a distance on its journey. Its first obstacle is often in the mouth, with bacteria or leftover toothpaste, mouthwash, or mouth rinse. (Make sure to thoroughly rinse your mouth with fresh water after brushing your teeth and before drinking celery juice to get rid of any toothpaste, mouthwash, or mouth rinse residue. Even better, wait to brush your teeth until after you’ve had your morning celery juice.)

Then there’s the esophagus, where the celery juice encounters additional bacteria plus deposits of ammonia and unproductive, detrimental acids. Next it reaches a hurdle at the bottom of the stomach pouch, just before the duodenum (the entrance to the small intestine). There’s a little ledge right before the duodenum, and depending on someone’s age, that alone can be filled with decades—sometimes 30 to 40 years’ worth—of debris that has gummed up and weighed down that little cliff. This debris could be from proteins, fats, preservatives, solidified ammonia, acids, and more, all of it corroding and formed into a sludgy deposit. Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts start eating away at this old pile of toxic sludge, slowly dissolving it over time.

So first the celery juice has to get through those obstacles. Then, as the celery juice is moving through the duodenum, it’s usually met with a barrage of H. pylori, Streptococcus, and other varieties of bacteria—because most people live with undiagnosed cases of these bacteria. Celery juice has to fight to sustain itself and stay active in this battle, which is doubly hard since it was already defused from dealing with toothbrushing residues and bacteria in the mouth; ammonia, acid, and more bacteria in the esophagus; and debris as it left the stomach.

As it continues through the duodenum, celery juice is bombarded with acids, since most everybody’s pH is “off” internally in this day and age. It’s not like we’re automatically alkaline. Sure, if someone’s healthy, their pH will be pretty balanced, and celery juice won’t have to do much work in this respect. Most people are filled with bacteria, though, and that’s a big acid producer. Unproductive diets and punishing stress levels are acid producers, too. As soon as we take our first sip, celery juice starts altering the internal pH of the body, beginning with the mouth and continuing down the digestive tract. It’s almost like an explosion as celery juice tries to turn the tide of high acidity, and that’s yet one more source that defuses it in its travels through our system.

Sound like a lot for celery juice to encounter and keep up its strength? There’s more. Just a few inches farther in the small intestinal tract, celery juice encounters a slick of mucus. It’s there in young and old alike—a layer of bottom feeders like strep and E. coli and other unproductive bacteria, usually along with two to three unproductive funguses, all of them just waiting for protein from eggs or supplemental collagen that we consume, or lactose from milk, cheese, butter, or other dairy, so the bugs can feed on them. When celery juice instead hits this pathway of pathogens, it’s yet one more area of battle.

Plus, there are rancid fats that have hardened and caked along the intestinal wall linings from years of high-fat foods, whether from healthy or unhealthy fat sources, as well as rotting protein that has formed into little balls of debris and created pockets in the intestinal tract that guard more bacteria and funguses. Addressing all of this is yet one more series of obstacles for celery juice during its travels.

That’s not even everything; it only describes the major hurdles that celery juice encounters so far. Then add in excess adrenaline—say, if you ate on the run or under stress, with tension in your gut, or if you ate too much fat with your meal the night before without realizing it, any of which prompts the adrenals to release a burst of adrenaline. When this excess adrenaline enters the intestinal tract, it’s a scorcher. It saturates cells all through the body, so if you were under intense stress or encountered another adrenal trigger the day before, when you wake up the next day, the adrenaline is still sitting in the intestinal tract. Celery juice works on neutralizing this adrenaline: yet one more battle. While celery juice will try to handle it, that’s a tall order considering everything else it went through as it traveled along through the gut.

A high-fat dinner does more than trigger adrenaline. Fats left over from dinner linger in the gut, from the stomach to the small intestinal tract to the colon, like an oil slick, and celery juice is up against those, too. High levels of these fats soak up celery juice’s healing compounds, using up sodium cluster salts, since they must go to work dispersing those fats and cleaning them out of the digestive tract. This means that if someone has an extra heavy dinner, maybe with something fried for the main course followed by dessert, celery juice will need to work extra hard the next morning, and that will diminish some of its healing power as it continues on the obstacle course.

The digestive system was only the beginning. The majority of the world is also dealing with stagnant, sluggish livers, and here’s the critical part: enough celery juice has to make it to the colon with its potency intact to be absorbed into the bloodstream so celery juice’s compounds can travel through the hepatic portal vein into the liver and then into the gallbladder—to help you heal. Regardless of what you’re dealing with in life, a healthier liver means a greater chance of healing any variety of symptom or condition you’re up against. Sixteen ounces is the magic number to do this for the majority of adults. (More soon on amounts for children.)

Once celery juice does get to the liver, it encounters another set of hurdles. For one, most people’s livers are toxic with poisons, pesticides, herbicides, plastics and other petrochemicals, solvents, pathogens such as viruses and bacteria, and many more troublemakers. All of this strains the liver’s bile production. When celery juice’s compounds enter the bile production area, if they’re still potent enough, they will improve the strength of the bile that the liver sends to the gallbladder. This celery juice–bolstered bile then starts dismantling and dispersing sludge in the gallbladder while also breaking down and dissolving gallstones. If you’ve been drinking large enough quantities of celery juice for long enough to get your system clean and healthy, celery juice’s compounds will then leave the gallbladder with the bile as it’s released into the intestinal tract. This is part of celery juice’s responsibility: to come full circle.

Not all of celery juice’s healing components that make it to the liver get directed to the bile. Some leave the liver through the bloodstream, heading up to the heart and brain, although their healing abilities by this point are pretty minimal if someone has a sluggish or stagnant liver, which most people do. It takes time for someone to clean up the liver to the point that celery juice’s components still hold benefits as they exit this way.

That’s okay, though, because celery juice has another way of getting its potent components to the bloodstream. Back when celery juice was first in the digestive tract, only some of it—roughly half— traveled to the liver in the first place. It divided itself on the obstacle course. While traveling through the stomach and the first 36 inches of the small intestine, the other half of celery juice’s chemical compounds absorbed into the digestive tract walls and entered the bloodstream directly without going to the liver first. Traveling through the blood is its own set of hurdles. How much fat is in the blood? (Fats interfere with celery juice’s travel distance.) How many toxins are in the blood? How many toxic heavy metals are inside various organs such as the brain? Speaking of the brain, how many neurotransmitter chemical issues are occurring there? All of this defuses and weakens any strength that celery juice has left. If neurotransmitter chemicals in the brain are diminished, celery juice’s compounds get used up in instantly replacing them, making this their final destination, in a way. If heavy metals need to be dislodged, celery juice’s sodium cluster salts get consumed with helping them out of the body.

Given the gargantuan scope of celery juice’s job, you can see why you’d want to drink enough of it to get that job done. The next time someone is quizzing you about why you drink this particular amount of celery juice, well, it’s up to you. You could give them the play-by-play of its travels through the digestive tract and beyond (in which case you probably want to make sure they aren’t eating!). You could give them the condensed version: celery juice has huge responsibilities and an obstacle course to overcome as it travels through your body and works on healing it. Or you could hand them this book. Whichever you choose, now you know, and that’s critical, because connecting to the “whys” of celery juice makes it all the more powerful.”

This recipe is likely to be a crowd pleaser. It’s packed full of flavor and a happy balance between sticky and crispy. Cauliflower is the star ingredient and a perfect vehicle for this delicious sauce. Enjoy this recipe alongside a beautiful salad for a meal, or serve it up as an accompaniment to any dish of your choice.

Cauliflower is a nutrient rich vegetable that is excellent for supporting a strong immune system and optimum health. Cauliflower is incredibly high in vitamin C and B-complex and minerals such as boron, calcium, molybdenum, and tryptophan. It is also a good source of high quality protein that is easily assimilated into the body. Cauliflower contains powerful anti-cancer compounds such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane which are particularly beneficial for helping to prevent breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, stomach, and prostate cancers.

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Ingredients:
For the cauliflower:
1 medium-sized head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
1 1/3 cup cassava flour
1 1/2 cups water, more if needed
1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)

For the sauce:
1/2 cup coconut aminos
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp tomato paste
3 garlic cloves, finely grated
1 tbsp grated ginger
2 tbsp arrowroot flour
1/2 cup water or vegetable broth, more if needed
2 tsp sesame seeds, for garnish
2 tbsp chopped green onions, for garnish

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the cassava flour, water and sea salt (if using). The batter should be thick enough to coat the cauliflower. If it's too thick, add a few tablespoons of water.

Add the cauliflower to the bowl and toss until well coated. Using a fork, transfer the bat-tered cauliflower to the baking sheet, shaking off the excess batter. Leave at least 1 inch between each piece.

Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until crisp. Flip the cauliflower pieces over halfway through.

These gorgeous gluten-free & dairy-free Raspberry Linzer Cookies are as appealing to the eye as they are the taste buds. They’re also fun to make with children, friends or loved ones. They look beautiful served at parties and gatherings or simply as a special treat to enjoy with a cup of herbal tea at home.

Raspberries are a great full-body detoxifying food, rich in antioxidants that specifically remove EBV’s byproduct and other viral debris from the bloodstream, allowing for easier overall cleansing. Raspberries also tend to bind onto and remove impurities delivered to the intestinal tract by a liver burdened by viral waste matter.

Raspberry Linzer Cookies

Ingredients:

Cookies:
1 1/4 cup almond flour
3 cups gluten-free oat flour
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
Sea salt (optional)

For the jam:
2 cups fresh raspberries
1-3 tbsp maple syrup, depending on sweetness of raspberries
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp white chia seeds

Directions:
Make the jam by combining the raspberries, maple syrup and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the raspberries have broken down. Remove from heat and stir in the chia seeds. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to thicken.

Make the cookie dough by adding the almond flour, gluten-free oat flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and sea salt to a bowl. Mix in the bowl with a wooden spoon, then transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until uniform. Divide the dough into two, cover each piece with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Working one piece of dough at a time, roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick between two sheets of parchment paper. Using a cookie cutter, cut an equal amount of cookies with a shape you desire cut out of the middle, such as a heart, star or triangle – this will be the top cookie), and with no shape cut out (these will be the bottom cookies). Transfer to the lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Bake the cookies in the oven for 8-12 minutes, until very slightly browned. Transfer to a cookie sheet and cool completely. Add about 1 tsp of raspberry jam to the bottom cookie. Gently sandwich the tops and bottoms together. Repeat with rest of cookies. Store in an airtight container at a cool room temperature for up to 24 hours, or in the refrigerator for several days.

Makes about 25-30 cookies

This creamy, chipotle-seasoned pasta is sure to please! It’s healthy and delicious and makes a perfect meal for family dinners. Pair it with a vibrant fresh salad for extra nutrients and healing properties.

Tomatoes: Harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver uses to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely,
smoothly, and efficiently. The fruit acids in tomatoes help keep the gallbladder healthy, helping rid sludge from the gallbladder and even reduce gallstone size.

Garlic: Deserves to be heralded as medicine for our world today. Used to enhance vitality since ancient times, garlic is more important for our well-being now than ever before. To give garlic its proper due would take a book on its own. Suffice it to say that garlic is multifaceted, playing many different roles in protecting a person’s health, and has substantial reach in what it can do for someone. Garlic is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal (including anti-mold), anti-parasitic, and rich in the phytochemical allicin, a sulfur compound that prevents disease.

Chipotle Pasta

Ingredients:
1/3 cup mashed avocado
1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, more if needed
1/2 to 1 tsp chipotle seasoning, to taste
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/3 cup crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp lemon juice
Sea salt, to taste (optional)
3 zucchinis or 1/2 lb. brown rice, sweet potato, chickpea or lentil noodles
2 tbsp roughly chopped fresh cilantro, to serve

Directions:
Spiralize the zucchini. If using brown rice, sweet potato, or bean noodles, cook them in salted boiling water until tender. Drain and set aside.

Make the sauce by combining the avocado, almond milk, chipotle seasoning, garlic, onion powder, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, lemon juice and sea salt in a blender and blending until smooth. The sauce should be thick but pourable - add a bit more almond milk if necessary.

Place the sauce in a large saucepan and heat until just warm. Don’t heat it too much or the sauce may become gluggy. Add the spiralized zucchini or noodles and toss to coat.
Divide the pasta between serving bowls and top with chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.


Serves 2-3
