Miracles of Asparagus

Throughout history, people have been searching for the fountain of youth. Far and wide they’ve traveled, seeking that magical spring flowing from the ground that will preserve good health. This source of youth is no myth, and it does come from the earth . . . it just happens to be readily available at the grocery store, too. That anti-aging wonder is asparagus. When were you at your strongest? When could you run effortlessly, swim in the ocean without tiring? Was it 10, 20, 30 years ago, or more? Maybe it was yesterday, or this morning. Connect with your best moment, whenever it was, that time when you felt your full life force coursing through you. That’s the same power that a spear of asparagus contains in its first few weeks aboveground. If you think about it, every piece of asparagus that we eat was once on its way to becoming a small tree. While every vegetable has its value, most of them can’t claim that same hidden potential.

When we eat young asparagus shoots, though, their propulsive energy is transferred to us. Not only does that energy keep us young, it helps with recovery and prevention of neurological disorders and symptoms. Asparagus contains phytochemical compounds such as chlorophyll and lutein that act as critical organ cleansers. They get deep into organs such as the liver, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys, scrubbing out the toxins they find there. Chlorophyll bonded to amino acids such as glutamine, threonine, and serine provides an avenue for heavy metal detox. What’s more, some of the phytochemicals found in asparagus are toxin inhibitors (a fact as yet unknown to science). This means that once toxins such as pesticides and heavy metals have been driven out of the organs, these specialized phytochemicals stay behind and repel new toxins from taking up residence there. This toxin inhibition makes asparagus an amazing tool for battling virtually every variety of cancer.

When we’re under immense stress, we tend to lose B vitamins very rapidly. Asparagus, which is high in very easily absorbable B vitamins, helps us reestablish our proper levels of these key nutrients. Also high in silica and trace minerals such as iron, zinc, molybdenum, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium, and selenium, asparagus is one of the most adrenal-supporting foods in existence and excellent for bringing you back to life when your adrenal glands have been pushed to the max. And we can’t talk about asparagus without mentioning how valuable it is at alkalizing the body by flushing out unproductive acids. We live in a very acidic environment, and if we want to remain free from disease, we must constantly work to keep ourselves alkaline with help from trusted friends like asparagus.

Conditions

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

Multiple sclerosis (MS), sepsis, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), bladder cancer, breast cancer, bone cancer, transient ischemic attack (TIA), gout, kidney stones, lung cancer, liver cancer, migraines, vertigo, neuropathy, diabetes, hypoglycemia, adrenal fatigue, shingles, Lyme disease, anxiety, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mononucleosis, osteomyelitis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease, thyroid cancer, low reproductive system battery, infertility, sleep apnea, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), acne, bursitis, celiac disease, connective tissue damage, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), heavy metal toxicity, herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1), herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2), hiatal hernia, fibroids, anemia

Symptoms

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

Twitches, spasms, tingles and numbness, ringing or buzzing in the ears, slurred speech, body odor, fatigue, hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, pins and needles, neuralgia, weight gain, weight loss, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, lack of motivation, listlessness, loss of libido, loss of energy, abdominal pain, menopause symptoms, urinary urgency, back pain, joint pain, neck pain, rib pain, adhesions, abdominal distension, canker sores, chronic loose stools, constipation, enlarged spleen, ovarian cysts, leg cramps, muscle spasms, muscle stiffness, inflammation

Emotional Support

Asparagus is a very helpful food if you struggle with shyness, self-consciousness, concern over what others think of you, fear of breaking out of your shell and exposing yourself, or dread of venturing out in public. If you truly need help in these areas (as opposed to if you’re just a natural introvert who’s comfortable with who you are, despite others’ misguided opinions that you should act more like an extrovert), asparagus will come to your aid and give you the confidence to rise up and claim your place in the world.

Spiritual Lesson

When we harvest asparagus, it’s really just a sprout on its way to becoming a much larger plant. If we were to let asparagus fern out and go to seed, though, it would become woody and inedible. Over time, humans have learned to recognize when a spear of asparagus is at its peak for consumption. It’s a lesson that transfers to our own lives. Sometimes people push circumstances too far, aiming for more and more growth, trying to see something through to the bitter end. We don’t always have to let a full cycle play out. We can learn to recognize when a project, meeting, or conversation has reached its best moment, and to gracefully end it at that point, harnessing the power of that peak time for the best ultimate outcome.

Asparagus Soup

This creamy soup is perfect for those spring nights that still have a bit of chill in the air and yet give you hope of all the renewal the season has to offer. And when fresh asparagus is unavailable, it’s the perfect comfort food to make with frozen asparagus instead. Either way, it’s a hit that’s sure to win fans from the moment they smell it cooking on the stove.

5 cups chopped asparagus
1/2 yellow onion, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup almonds
Black pepper to taste

Place the asparagus, yellow onion, and garlic in a saucepan. Add 2 cups of water; cover and bring to a simmer. Steam the asparagus for 5 to 7 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat. Drain off any excess water and transfer the mixture to a blender*. Add all the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Allow steam to escape the top of the blender as you go. *You may also use an immersion blender, if desired. Leave the asparagus in the pan and add all the remaining ingredients before blending.

Makes 2 to 4 servings
