Dates are amazing for the digestive system. As one of the most anti-parasitical foods on the planet, dates bind onto, destroy, and sweep away parasites; yeast, mold, and other fungus; heavy metals; unproductive bacteria; viruses; and other poisonous pathogens from the gut. It makes them one of the most beneficial Candida killers known to humankind—despite the misinformation out there about dates feeding Candida. (For more on the truth about this condition, see the entire chapter devoted to it in my first book, Medical Medium) Dates also help restore peristaltic function in the intestines, retraining the intestinal tract after paralysis or dysfunction to move properly and expel any rotting food.

Raw Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ingredients:
For the cookies:
1 cup dried mulberries
1 cup pitted Medjool dates, tightly packed
1/3 cup shredded coconut (leave out for fat-free)

For the cinnamon banana ice cream:
2 frozen bananas
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
2-3 tbsp warm water

For the strawberry ice cream:
2 frozen bananas
1 cup frozen strawberries
2-3 tbsp warm water

Directions:
To make the cookies, add the mulberries, dates and coconut (if using) to a food processor and process until you have a uniform mixture that sticks together.

Roll the mixture into balls and then flatten into cookies, about 1/4 inch thick. Place in the freezer for at least 1 hour to firm up.

To make the ice creams, add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Add the water as needed to blend. Place in a freezer-friendly container and freeze for 2-3 hours, until firm.

To serve, place a scoop of ice cream between too cookies and press down. Repeat with rest of cookies.

Serve immediately or freeze for an additional 30 minutes for a firmer sandwich.

This gorgeous parfait is a feast for the eyes and the body. With its layers of bright yellow-orange smoothie topped with beautiful deep red and blue berries, you may find yourself serving this to family and friends long after the cleanse has finished.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

Mangoes: Cool a toxic, overheated liver, soothing and calming it to prevent the organ from going into spasm. The yellow-to-orange pigment in mangoes feeds liver lobules and strengthens hepatocytes and Kupffer cells, allowing them to do the jobs they need to do. Mangoes also have a unique phytochemical compound that helps the liver’s immune system destroy the pockets of bacteria that create liver abscesses. Help prevent your liver from aging and cells from dying while improving bile production.

Berries: A medicine chest for the liver. Loaded with antioxidants to keep a variety of liver cells, including hepatocytes and Kupffer cells, as well as liver lobules and capillaries, from becoming infected and affected by toxins and pathogens. Berries protect the liver from troublemakers causing damage; the many undiscovered antioxidants they contain help shield liver cells from harm. All berries, including raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries, stop the liver from oxidizing too easily when saturated with toxic heavy metals and poisons.

The vibrant color, flavor, and fragrance of curry make this dish a standout. As a bonus, it comes together quickly and easily; you’ll be sitting down to enjoy a beautiful meal in no time! Enjoy this wonderful Curried Cauliflower and Peas alone or with a salad such as the Leafy Green Salad in Cleanse To Heal.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

Cauliflower: This crucifer contains the trace mineral boron, which is also known to help the endocrine system—and yet cauliflower gets more attention for the so-called goitrogens it contains. Cauliflower does the very opposite of what the hype says—it helps the thyroid and the rest of the endocrine system (including the hypothalamus and adrenal glands) to stave off the viruses that are truly behind issues such as thyroiditis.

Peas: Contain easily assimilable healing phytochemical compounds and carbohydrates plus an abundance of chlorophyll that absorbs easily into the intestinal linings, where these components feed healthy cell growth and help restore mucus membranes when the intestinal tract linings have become scorched, scarred, injured, or damaged by excess adrenaline, toxic troublemakers, troublemaker foods, and pathogens.

Curried Cauliflower & Peas

Ingredients:
1 medium-sized head of cauliflower, cut into florets
3/4 cup green peas, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
3 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
1/4 cup tightly packed fresh cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish

Directions:
Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the cauliflower and peas in the basket, cover, and steam for 3 to 4 minutes, until just tender. Remove from heat.

Place a large ceramic nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and add the green onions, garlic, and ginger. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, adding a spoonful of water if needed, until the green onion begins to soften.

Lower the heat and add the curry powder, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, and chili powder (if using). Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. If the mixture starts sticking to the pan or burning, add a bit of water.

Add the steamed cauliflower, peas, and 1/2 cup water. Stir until well mixed and coated. When all the water has evaporated and the peas are soft, remove from heat. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro.

Enjoy this unique, healing spin on a childhood favorite. They’re delicious served with the ketchup recipe below or the Spinach Pesto recipe in Cleanse To Heal and served on their own or with salad.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

Sweet potatoes are an important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.

Sweet Potato Tots

Ingredients:
2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon dried herbs such as oregano, thyme, or rosemary

OPTIONAL KETCHUP
6 ounces pure tomato paste (find one without additives or salt)
1/3 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons raw honey
1/4 teaspoon dried onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender on the outside yet firm in the middle. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes and grate them using the large side of a box grater. Place the grated sweet potato into a bowl and add the herbs. Mix until combined.

Use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture, and then use your hands to form the tots into small cylinders.

Place the tots on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until browned. For a crispier tot, turn the heat up to 400°F for the last 10 minutes of baking. Let the tots cool for 5 to 10 minutes before eating.

To make the ketchup, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Serve with tots.

This soup is oh so creamy and dreamy. The potatoes add a natural creaminess to the soup without the use of cream, butter, or milk, and the broccoli adds some texture. Serve yourself up a big bowl of this soup when you’re looking for a comforting, grounding meal. Pair it with Leafy Green Salad or Liver Rescue Salad (recipes in Cleanse To Heal) if you wish.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. They’re also shunned for being a nightshade, when in truth they have the ability to reverse many varieties of chronic illness.

Broccoli: The “trunks” of broccoli are rich in sulfur compounds, which are not researched to the extent needed—they’re more important than we realize. These phytochemical sulfur compounds act as harmful gas to unfriendly bacteria and other microorganisms inside the intestinal tract and also travel straight to the liver, where they saturate liver tissue, allowing the liver’s immune system to have a fighting chance at controlling pathogens.

"Cheddar" Broccoli Soup

Ingredients:
3 cups diced potatoes
1 cup diced carrot
3/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup water or Liver Rescue Broth (recipe on page 394 of Cleanse To Heal)
1 medium-sized head broccoli, chopped into bite-sized pieces (yields about 4 cups)

Directions:
Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the potatoes and carrots in the basket, cover, and steam for 8 to 12 minutes, until soft.

When they’re ready, remove the potatoes and carrots and place them in a blender together with the turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, lemon juice, and water or Liver Rescue Broth. Blend until very smooth. Pour into a pot and bring to a simmer.

To make the broccoli, steam it for 5 to 10 minutes, until tender yet not mushy; you want the broccoli to hold up well in the soup. Stir it into the soup. Divide the soup between bowls and serve.

Tips:
* If you don’t like broccoli, you can use cauliflower or asparagus.

* When choosing between water and Liver Rescue Broth for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free from oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Liver Rescue Broth in advance and freeze it (consider ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like these.

With just a few key ingredients, these Breakfast Cookies couldn’t be simpler, with no flavor sacrificed. You can make them in advance for busy mornings or pack in lunch boxes for the whole family.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

Let's take a look at how some of the key ingredients in these Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies can offer healing support:

Bananas: The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Raisins: Raisins can easily be ignored or forgotten, but they actually offer wonderful health benefits and in fact offer greater nutritional might than the goji berry, which is touted as a superfood. Raisins can vary in size and color depending on which type of grape is used. Grapes have a lengthy list of health benefits and can be particularly beneficial when it comes to battling The Unforgiving Four. They possess strong antiviral properties and can help in the removal of radiation from the body. They also work to remove DDT and toxic heavy metals from the liver thanks to the collaborative efforts of their amino acids and anthocyanins.

Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

Ingredients:
1 large ripe banana (about 1/2 cup mashed)
1 cup gluten-free oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup cranberries or raisins (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the banana in a medium-sized mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add the oats, cinnamon, and cranberries or raisins, if desired. Mix until uniform.

Scoop out the mixture using a heaping tablespoon measure—you should get about 8 cookies. Place them on the baking sheet and flatten them slightly to make discs.

Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until browned on the sides. Cool completely before eating.

The versatility of the humble potato is impressive. From steamed to baked to salads to pizzas to stuffed to mashed and more, there are endless ways to draw on its flexibility. Potatoes often get a bad rap because of the other ingredients that accompany them. When prepared without butter, cream, cheese, or bacon bits, the potato is an incredibly healing vegetable that can help knock down your viral load. These Pizza Boats show one more delicious way you can enjoy the potato.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution.

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.

Zucchini: Zucchini have a mild liver-purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver.

Potato Pizza Boats

Ingredients:
4 large russet potatoes

SAUCE
1/2 cup pure tomato paste (find one without additives)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon raw honey
1/4 cup water

TOPPING OPTIONS
1/4 cup chopped zucchini
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1/4 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped red onion
Fresh basil, to serve

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pierce the potatoes with a fork and place them on the baking sheet. Bake them in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until tender. Remove and cool.

While the potatoes are roasting, make the tomato sauce by whisking together the tomato paste, dried oregano, dried thyme, raw honey, and 1/4 cup water. Set aside.

When they are cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the top of each potato half, creating a boat. Place a couple of tablespoons of tomato sauce in each and add toppings of your choice.

Place them back in the oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until the toppings are cooked through. Serve immediately. Makes 2 to 3 servings.

Fresh arugula and spinach tossed with warm roasted vegetables makes for a heavenly pairing. This Warm Spiced Roasted Vegetable Salad is a great way to get all-important leafy greens in while also enjoying the comfort and satiation of roasted vegetables.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes 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.

Let's take a look at how some of the key ingredients in this recipe can offer healing support:

Winter squash (including kabocha, acorn, delicata, and butternut): Loaded with nutrients that our livers can easily store. High in carotenoids that protect liver cells from damage. The glucose in winter squash can stabilize the liver, allowing blood sugar to stabilize overall in the body.

Zucchini: Very similar to cucumber in certain ways, as it is also a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration, which allows the liver to store micro pockets of water that it can later release back into the bloodstream during moments of chronic dehydration in your life. Zucchini have a mild liver- purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

Arugula: Causes a gentle purging effect inside the liver, with undiscovered phytochemical compounds that allow the liver to decide the severity of the cleanse and what toxins it safely wants to release (versus a purge that would harm the liver).

Warm Spiced Roasted Vegetable Salad

Ingredients:
1 cup diced carrot
2 cups chopped butternut squash
1/2 cup diced red onion
2 cups roughly chopped zucchini
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika

Leafy greens get a little bit of attention in health circles, but for most people, they are not ever given a thought. If anything, the focus is on vegetables and rarely leafy greens. Whichever diet you subscribe to—vegan, paleo, vegetarian, keto or just a standard American diet—if you’re not getting enough leafy greens, the future of your health is in jeopardy. That might seem like a strong statement, but it’s the truth. If you’re not consuming enough raw leafy greens regularly, you will eventually experience some health challenges. Raw leafy greens, such as lettuce, spinach, swiss chard, mâche, watercress, collard greens, purslane and kale, are that critical for our wellbeing.

Source of Elevated Biotics & Enemy To Bad Bacteria

Still undiscovered by research and science, elevated biotics are a type of microorganism found on raw leafy greens that I brought to light in Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. These microorganisms are responsible for producing the ultimate methylated form of B12 that absorbs into the channels of your body and finds its way back to your liver when called for. As I share in Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, “this B12 is the liver’s number-one most important mortar to hold together all the bricks that build the castle of your health. When there’s enough of it, the liver stores ample amounts to send into the bloodstream as an assistant to almost every vitamin, mineral, and other nutrient that it releases to aid your body in any way. It’s the B12 that makes everything go right”. To understand where to find these elevated biotics and exactly how they work in the body to perform critical functions, you can read Life-Changing Foods and Liver Rescue. These elevated biotics on unwashed (or very lightly washed), organic, raw leafy greens also help to repopulate your intestinal tract with good bacteria.

Additionally, raw leafy greens sweep the walls of the intestines, gently massaging your duodenum, small intestine, and colon, clearing away bad bacteria and rancid fats and proteins that have gone undigested for years. This build up is part of the reason someone can experience bloating or gastritis—and simply taking a probiotic isn’t going to fix it. Probiotics don’t kill bad bacteria. They don’t kill streptococcus or E.coli. A high quality probiotic definitely has a place in health, but they don’t do even a fraction of the healing work that elevated biotics do. The trace minerals found in leafy greens are prebiotics that feed good bacteria and kill off bad bacteria.

If your stomach feels uncomfortable when you eat raw leafy greens, it means you have colonies of bad bacteria that have been building up in your gut, elevating levels of inflammation, and over sensitizing the nerves of your intestinal lining. This translates to intestinal discomfort whenever you eat anything that’s not soft, smooth and fiberless, like a piece of white bread, an egg or plain chicken. These foods sit in the stomach and become gooey, making you feel you’re digesting them well, when, in truth, you’re actually not digesting them well because these particular foods don’t digest well in general. They are sticky foods and hang around in the intestines.

Due to this sensitivity, when you eat something that isn’t totally soft and smooth and contains fiber, such as lettuce or kale, and you experience some discomfort or symptoms, the leafy green appears to be the problem food. But in reality it’s just because you have sensitive nerves that you feel these foods moving through your intestines. Raw leafy greens and other healing foods are actually helping to clean away the build-up of bad bacteria and rancid fats and proteins that are causing you to be sensitive in the first place. Eating foods like grass fed butter, eggs, and cheese, while soft and smooth feeling, only propagate the bad bacteria causing these issues. You can understand more of the reasons why these foods are best avoided if you have any chronic symptom or illness in Liver Rescue.

Another element is that when you’re stressed, your adrenals purge and flood your body with adrenaline. That adrenaline gets into the intestinal tract and destroys good bacteria and microorganisms in the gut, creating a playground for bad bacteria.

Mineral Salts, Electrolytes, and Vitamins

Leafy greens hold precious and vital mineral salts that are critical for our health. As I share in Life-Changing Foods, “for our bodies to function optimally, we need to have enough mineral salts in our diets. Leafy greens such as spinach provide bioavailable forms of potassium, sodium, and chloride that mean everything when it comes to keeping our systems strong so we can fight off the Unforgiving Four (see Life-Changing Foods to learn about these four factors that cause illness and symptoms today) and other invaders. Leafy greens are also rich in trace mineral salts that contain particularly bioavailable forms of the minerals that the body craves (and that science has not yet discovered).

Mineral salts allow information to travel throughout the body so it can keep itself in balance no matter what’s occurring. They are instrumental in the electricity created by the heart and brain that governs all the other organs in the body. Mineral salts keep the heart pumping and create the neurotransmitters needed to take information from point A to point B in the brain—that is, from neuron to neuron. Mineral salts keep the kidneys and adrenals functioning and create hydrochloric acid in the gut so that your body can break down and assimilate what you eat.

Mineral salts are also temperature-regulating for the entire body; they stop us from overheating and prevent us from getting cold. Without mineral salts, we would be constantly susceptible to dehydration, severe edema, and unproductive diuretic conditions. They are that integral to keeping you alive and well so that you’re in the best place to deal with whatever comes your way.

The sodium cluster salts in celery juice, which are a subgroup of sodium, are a special and powerful example of how healing mineral salts are. Sixteen ounces of celery juice on an empty stomach in the morning specifically targets bad bacteria, destroying it so the dead bad bacteria can then become a food source for good bacteria to feed off of. While celery is an herb, it warrants mentioning here because it is such a powerful healing food. To ensure you receive its benefits, you have to know how to drink it in the right way, which is what I describe in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide. Raw leafy greens contain their own types of mineral salts and different leafy greens can contain different minerals. For example, spinach contains trace bioavailable iodine, chromium, sulfur, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and manganese, all critical for neuron support. Even if you drink celery juice, you still need your leafy greens.

Leafy greens are critical forms of electrolytes. Vitamin A, B, folic acid, healing alkaloids, disease fighting compounds, and micronutrients for restoring the endocrine system can all be found in leafy greens. These powerful foods provide a unique group of nutrients that feed all organ systems. Without leafy greens, the rest of your diet just won’t be enough to keep you healthy, especially considering the types of viruses and bacteria we face today, which cause symptoms such as headaches, tingles and numbness, body aches and pains, fatigue, brain fog, and many more.

Bioavailable Protein

If you worry about getting enough protein, fret no more. Leafy greens have the most bioavailable and assimilable proteins you can find, readily available for your body to take up. Leafy greens help reverse all protein-related diseases, such as gout, kidney disease, kidney stones, gallstones, gallbladder disease, osteopenia, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Protein not breaking down can contribute to these diseases and cause deterioration of the body.

Juicing Leafy Greens

One fantastic way to get the benefits of leafy greens is to juice them. Try juicing some celery and/or cucumber with leafy greens like spinach, kale or romaine, and some apple, lemon and ginger if you like. If you’re wondering why you should juice your greens when your ancestors were simply picking them from the garden and eating them, the answer is simple—we are living in a different world now. The toxins, pollutants, viruses and bacteria that we are up against now are so much worse than they’ve ever been. Bad bacteria are building up in our digestive tracts by the millions. Streptococcus, E.coli, C. diff, staph, and even bad fungus; they sit inside our intestinal tracts, thriving and taking up space, making it harder to absorb the nutrients we need. We also have sluggish and stagnant livers that are overburdened by toxins and pathogens, which means they aren’t functioning optimally. Plus we are loaded with toxic heavy metals and viruses.

Juicing increases the potency and the quantity of the critical nutrients we receive from raw leafy greens and helps to replenish deficiencies. It also takes out some of the work for your digestive system. Freshly made juice with raw leafy greens is essentially pre-digested, making it a liquid infusion for your cells that’s easily absorbed.

If you’re afraid of raw vegetables and salads because you find them irritating to the gut, that probably means you have a hypersensitive intestinal tract. Juicing is a wonderful remedy for anyone with digestive sensitivities. Plus you can also get larger quantities of raw leafy greens into your diet with a juice than if you ate them whole or even blended them (blending is another healing way to include raw leafy greens, such as in the Medical Medium Spinach Soup).

None of this means you shouldn’t eat your greens, but juicing can be a vital key to recovering your health and healing deficiencies.

Cooking and Leafy Greens

Oftentimes people like to cook leafy greens, such as collard greens, spinach, bok choy, swiss chard, and kale. While these greens are incredibly healing in their raw form, it’s best to avoid cooking them. When leafy greens are steamed, sauteed, fried, roasted or cooked in any other way, it alters the naturally occurring oxalic acid (which is not at all harmful when leafy greens are raw) and makes it into a form that becomes less usable by the body. This is one reason leafy greens are best consumed raw.

Raw Leafy Greens

Butter lettuce, arugula, mache, watercress, swiss chard, red and green leaf lettuce, romaine, spinach and kale are all alkalizing greens that make great salads. They can also be added into smoothies. Most people will find spinach is a mild addition to smoothies, sauces, dressings and raw soups.

Most people have never eaten enough raw leafy greens, so they’re already deficient in the mineral salts and nutrients these special foods can provide. Now that you know how important leafy greens are, you can start including plenty of them every day. At a minimum, every adult should consume at least two and a half cups of chopped raw leafy greens per day. For someone with a chronic illness or symptom, much more per day would be helpful to bring back their health, along with the other healing information I share in the Medical Medium book series. A pound a day of leafy greens could be very helpful for someone in this situation. If you can’t manage it every day, take baby steps. Can you have a big green salad or my spinach soup twice a week? Can you add 2 cups of spinach into your favorite fruit smoothie? Can you have a green juice a few times per week? Start there and take it one day at a time.

It’s also important to include certain green powder supplements for their specific healing properties and concentration of nutrients, including spirulina and barley grass juice powder. These two green powders are very special and when both are taken daily, they act as a multi-vitamin and multi-mineral that is helpful for healing and as one powerful step to assist in the prevention of future deficiencies and symptoms. My Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie is an ideal way to get these powders into your diet daily and also includes the herb cilantro and the sea leaf vegetable dulse. While these foods aren’t leafy greens, they are also vitally important.

To understand more about how leafy greens can help you, I recommend reading Life-Changing Foods. Leafy greens help with depression, infertility, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, insomnia, skin disorders, hormone imbalances, heart palpitations, brain fog, dizziness—the list goes on. Leafy greens also help rebuild your body’s hydrochloric acid, strengthen digestion, limit pancreatic issues, and help prevent diabetes in the future. If your current diet regimen or health professional isn’t telling you to eat leafy greens, that diet is falling short. It’s important to become your own health expert and empower yourself with the information you need to heal and take care of your health in the future. Leafy greens is one great way to do that.
