Healing Power of Cucumbers

So many people go through life with chronic dehydration, with no idea of the negative effect it’s having on their health. Cucumbers are the perfect antidote. They have a fountain-of-youth effect, hydrating us at the deepest cellular level possible. Plus, cucumbers’ cooling effect makes them excellent at rejuvenation and especially effective at cooling a hot, stagnant liver. When eaten on a daily basis, cucumbers can reverse liver damage, dialing back 10 to 15 years of toxin exposure (including from heavy metals and pesticides such as DDT) and poor diet. It makes this vegetable (really, a fruit) a particular ally in reducing bloat. 

Fresh cucumber juice is the best rejuvenation tonic in the world. It contains electrolyte compounds specifically geared toward nourishing and cooling down overused adrenal glands and kidneys that are struggling with their task of filtering out toxic debris and getting overheated from toxic uric acid. If you have kidney disease, are on dialysis, or you’re missing a kidney, drinking cucumber juice every day can be extremely beneficial. Cucumbers’ cooling effect on the glands and organs also makes them wonderful fever reducers for both children and adults. Juicing cucumbers unleashes their magical anti-fever compounds and agents that help calm a fever like water on a fire. 

Cucumbers’ traces of the amino acids glycine and glutamine, combined with their extreme and highly active content of enzymes and coenzymes, plus their abundance of more than 50 trace minerals, make them an excellent delivery system for neurotransmitter chemicals. This is great news if you’re dealing with anxiety or other neurological conditions. Cucumbers provide other critical nutrition, too, such as chlorophyll in their skins that’s bonded to B vitamins and vitamins A and C. And cucumbers support digestion; they contain undiscovered coenzymes that will one day be called talafinns. Alongside enzymes that have been discovered by medical research (such as erepsin), talafinns help the body’s protein digestion process so you can get the most out of everything you eat. 

CONDITIONS 

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

Kidney disease, kidney failure, missing kidney, adrenal fatigue, anxiety, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mononucleosis, diabetes, hypoglycemia, migraines, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), eczema, psoriasis, transient ischemic attack (TIA), mystery infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), low reproductive system battery, colds, influenza, cytomegalovirus (CMV), HHV-6, shingles, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), dysautonomia, sepsis, yeast infections, E. coli infection, Streptococcus infection, sunburn 

SYMPTOMS 

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

Fever, dandruff, bloating, gastric spasms, stagnant liver, dehydration, headaches, dry and/or itchy skin, hot flashes, weight gain, menopause symptoms, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, anxiousness, neuralgia (including trigeminal neuralgia), food sensitivities, inflammation, blood toxicity, acidosis, back pain, all neurological symptoms (including tingles, numbness, spasms, twitches, nerve pain, and tightness of the chest), low hydrochloric acid 

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT 

There’s a reason we use the expression “cool as a cucumber.” If you or a loved one are dealing with an anger issue, bring cucumbers into the diet. Offer cucumber slices to anyone who you know can be easily infuriated, disgruntled, crabby, cranky, irritated, heated, or down-right hostile. 

SPIRITUAL LESSON 

Because they’re green and we eat them in salads, we often think of cucumbers as a vegetable. When we open one up, though, we remember that all those little seeds mean a cucumber is truly a fruit. It’s a powerful reminder that outside appearances and the boxes other people put us into don’t make up the full truth of who we are. Very often we, too, have a talent, quality, or gift that someone couldn’t guess just by looking at us. Cucumbers teach us to look deep inside ourselves and each other for the miracles we all contain. 

TIPS 

* For results you can see, try to eat two cucumbers daily. 

* Instead of juicing a multitude of vegetables and fruits at one time, try juicing cucumber on its own. Like celery juice, straight cucumber juice has unique healing qualities. If you drink 16 ounces of pure cucumber juice on a regular basis, it can have a life-changing effect.

* If you’re trying to keep grains out of your diet, turn cucumbers into noodles with a spiralizer or julienne peeler. Cucumber noodles are more hydrating and tastier than the more popular zucchini noodles. Try English cucumbers for best noodle results.

* When using conventional cucumbers, make sure to peel off the skin before eating to avoid consuming the toxic wax coating.

CUCUMBER NOODLE BOWL 

This clean, cool noodle bowl will leave you feeling light and refreshed. The Asian-inspired flavors of lime and sesame are tossed with cucumber, carrot, and cashews in a beautiful mix of color and crunch. This nice, mild dish can easily be made spicier by adding extra red pepper flakes at the very end to find your perfect flavor. You’ll end up with a bowl that is just as beautiful as it is delicious. 

  • 4 cucumbers
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • Lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped basil
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped cashew 

Cut the cucumbers and carrots into thin strips using a julienne peeler, knife, or spiralizer. In a large bowl, toss the cucumber and carrot “noodles” with sesame oil, sesame seeds, lime juice, and red pepper flakes, if using. Just prior to serving, top the mixture with chopped cilantro, basil, and cashews. Enjoy! 

Makes 2 servings
