Healing Power of Cherries

In this day and age, our livers are more burdened than ever before in history. With toxins in our environment and foods that stress our bodies, sluggish and fatty livers are becoming rampant. While certain liver-cleansing techniques have become trendy, a handful of cherries can do so much more. Cherries are an amazing way to revitalize this organ; they’re the ultimate liver tonic, cleanser, and rejuvenator.

Cherries promote healthy hemoglobin and are also anti-cancerous, specifically effective at addressing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, melanoma, and glioblastoma (a type of brain tumor). Cherries sharpen the mind by purifying the bowels—they’re better at alleviating constipation than prunes! They cleanse the bladder, too, and help alleviate spastic bladders and bladder prolapse. Plus, cherries are one of the best endocrine-system-boosting foods, stimulating or suppressing the appetite as needed. If it’s weight loss you’re after, cherries are your new best friend.

In the world of minerals, we’re familiar with the concept of macrominerals, which our bodies rely on in higher amounts, and trace minerals, which are just as critical to our functioning, though we need them in smaller doses. Cherries, for example, are a wonderful source of trace minerals such as zinc and iron. As anyone with anemia can tell you, a deficiency in iron is not small potatoes just because iron is a trace mineral—it’s vital no matter what.

The same concept is true with amino acids, though science has yet to focus on this. In addition to the amino acids we’re familiar with, there are minute, trace forms of amino acids that become cofactors to their macro forms—and cherries are rich in both macro and trace amino acids (including threonine, tryptophan, and lysine) that specifically work in tandem with the hormone melatonin to give your brain and body amazing stress relief. When enhanced like this, melatonin also acts as an antioxidant to help protect the brain from Alzheimer’s, dementia, and brain tumors.

Phytochemical compounds and agents in cherries are amazing for removing radiation and repairing myelin nerve damage. Women receive particular benefit from cherries’ cleansing properties: cherries remove toxins from the uterus and the rest of the reproductive system and help to reduce fibroids and ovarian cysts.

CONDITIONS

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

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Alzheimer’s disease, bladder cancer, lymphoma (including non-Hodgkin’s), melanoma, bladder prolapse, fatty liver, breast cancer, autism, brain tumors, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ear infections, fibromyalgia, depression, infertility, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), kidney stones, low reproductive system battery, anorexia, alopecia, dementia, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, adrenal fatigue, acne, anemia, fibroids, bursitis, urinary tract infections (UTIs) such as kidney infections and bladder infections, anxiety, connective-tissue damage, prostatitis, Graves’ disease, insomnia, dysautonomia, vertigo, blood disorders, nodules on bones and glands

SYMPTOMS

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

Nosebleeds, sprains, tooth decay, hypo- thyroid, lightheadedness, constipation, lack of appetite, overactive appetite, cravings, fever, scratching and itching, dry mouth, malaise, bruising, dizziness, chest pain, hyperthyroid, impotence, cough, phobias, sluggish liver, food allergies, myelin nerve damage, fatigue, memory loss, back pain, bad breath, blood toxicity, confusion, high cortisol, inflammation, ovarian cysts

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

If you want to cheer up friends or family members, take them some cherries and you’ll notice they’ll be tickled pink. If you or someone you know never feels satisfied with circumstances, let cherries work their magic of contentment. If you ever worry about being speechless, add cherries to your diet and you’ll feel the conversation flow. And if you’re feeling empty and deserted, cherries can point your feelings in a new direction. Simply from looking at a bowl of cherries, joy instantly enters into a person’s being. Cherries ignite enthusiasm and create positive excitement. They’re an amazing fruit to keep someone lighthearted.

SPIRITUAL LESSON

Cherries teach us patience. If you rush while eating a cherry—if you don’t take care to bite into it carefully—you may find that you injure yourself on the stone inside. In this way, cherries teach us to take our time, to be mindful and considered in our actions so we minimize mistakes and pain.

TIPS

* Cherries are so cleansing, detoxifying so many impurities, that they serve us best in limited quantities. When eating this fruit, don’t be so distracted by the delicious flavor that you forget to listen to your cutoff signal. Consume cherries in small servings portioned out daily, rather than in a large serving at one sitting.

* When selecting red cherries at the market or grocery store, look for the darkest ones. These deeper shades have the most healing benefits. If the red cherries you’re looking at are colored too lightly, it means the soil of the cherry tree didn’t have the optimal level of minerals.

SWEET CHERRY SMOOTHIE

In this smoothie, the sweetness of the cherries combines with the creaminess of the bananas and a pop of tart lemon to surprise and delight you.

1 frozen banana
2 ripe bananas
1 cup frozen cherries
1⁄2 lemon, peeled
1⁄2 cup water

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and enjoy! (Note that this mixture will gel if left to sit, so drink immediately if you’d like it fluid or refrigerate for half an hour if you prefer a pudding consistency.)

Makes 2 servings

Excerpt form the #1 New York Times bestselling book Life-Changing Foods
