Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog. I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, recipes, and practices that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
Potato and veggie bowls are a versatile and delicious meal you can keep coming back to as a healing meal in your weekly rotation. Potatoes provide satiation, nutrients, and critical clean carbohydrates so you get the essential glucose our brains and bodies need to heal and thrive. Then you can choose your favorite vegetables to add into your potato and veggie bowls for additional nutrients and healing properties, along with extra flavor and variety. Also you can pair with fresh greens or a salad for a truly healing meal.
Tip: You can batch prep the potatoes the night before and store in the fridge to use when you’re ready. Reheat by simply adding to a ceramic skillet with veggies or use an oven or air fryer to crisp up as desired.
Potatoes will be your allies if you’re looking to fight any chronic illness—to fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves and digestive tract.
Spicy Potato & Bell Pepper Bowl
Steam whole potatoes for 45 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from heat and cool.
Place a non-stick ceramic skillet on medium-high heat and add the onions. Cook until soft and browned, for about 8-10 minutes, adding a tablespoon of water as you go to prevent sticking.
When the onions are ready, add the bell peppers, jalapeno, and diced tomato and continue cooking for another 3-5 minutes until the bell peppers and tomato are soft. Remove from heat and serve with potatoes.

Sweet potatoes promote productive bacteria in the stomach, small intestine, and colon, while at the same time, they starve out unproductive bacteria and fungi such as mold. By keeping these microbes at bay, sweet potatoes help enhance the body’s production of B12.
Sweet potatoes help prevent megacolon, which is an expansion of the colon due to proliferation of C. difficile, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E. coli, H. pylori, Chlamydia, and/or other bacteria. Plus, they help alleviate narrowing of the intestinal tract due to the chronic inflammation that’s so commonly diagnosed as Crohn’s or colitis.
Orange-fleshed sweet potatoes are packed with carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lycopene. If you are fair and eat a sweet potato daily, before long you’ll see your skin take on a glow, as if it’s been sun-kissed. The lycopene, combined with sweet potatoes’ abundant amino acids, helps draw radiation from the body.
Sweet potatoes are phytoestrogenic and help rid the body of unusable, destructive, cancer-causing estrogen that interferes with the body’s hormone function. These estrogens come from plastics, pharmaceuticals, food, and environmental toxins, as well as from the body producing an overabundance of the hormone (due to a diet high in estrogen-producing foods). By purging this excess estrogen, sweet potatoes make room for healthier estrogens to take their place.
Sweet potatoes help regulate hair growth. And if you struggle with insomnia or another sleeping disorder, sweet potatoes provide a critical form of glucose that stimulates the development of neurotransmitters such as glycine, dopamine, GABA, and serotonin, all of which aid in the ability to sleep soundly.
How To Use:
Whether you like orange, yellow, white, pink, or purple sweet potatoes, eat up. Each type holds medicinal qualities. Steamed sweet potatoes (or in soups, stews or stir-fries) hold the most healing properties.

Fresh, crispy, hydrating lettuce leaves are the perfect complement to roasted spicy sweet potatoes in this recipe. These lettuce wraps are delicious while also being full of nutrients. This recipe is made without ay fats such as oil or butter, which makes it even more healing. These wraps are great for a light meal or a snack anytime of day.
Sweet potatoes are also important for regulating hair growth; they stimulate it where needed and prohibit hair when it tries to grow in the wrong places, as in the condition hirsutism.
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.
Spicy Sweet Potato Lettuce Wraps
Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the sweet potato, lime juice, cayenne, ground cumin, ground coriander, and raw honey or maple syrup. Toss until well combined.
Transfer the sweet potato mixture to the baking sheet and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork.
Remove from oven and cool slightly.
Arrange lettuce leaves on a platter or plates. Top with roasted sweet potato, cilantro, and spring onion and drizzle with raw honey and lime juice. Serve immediately.

Asparagus has anti-aging properties that can help keep us young. It also helps 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. Some of the phytochemicals found in asparagus are toxin inhibitors (a fact as yet unknown to science). This means that once toxins such as DDT, other pesticides, and heavy metals have been driven out of the organs, these specialized phytochemicals stay behind and can repel new toxins from taking up residence there. This toxin inhibition makes asparagus a helpful cancer preventative.
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 helping to bring you back to life when your adrenal glands have been pushed to the max.
Asparagus alkalizes the body by flushing out unproductive acids. We live in a very acidic environment, and if we want to help ourselves stay or get healthy, we must constantly work to keep ourselves alkaline with help from trusted friends like asparagus.
How To Use:
Enjoy asparagus in fresh juices, or eat it raw as a snack, as a crudité with a dip like hummus, or chopped into salads. You can also enjoy it steamed, stir-fried, or in soups.
For more information on the healing properties of asparagus and the symptoms and conditions it can help with, check out the New York Times best-selling book, Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits & Vegetables, and the other books in the Medical Medium series.
Dig into one or both versions of these delicious and satisfying potato wraps. One comes stuffed with a pizza-inspired filling and the other a salad sandwich–style filling. You may want to make extra wraps and enjoy this recipe with family or friends. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.
The entire potato, inside and out, is valuable and beneficial for your health: potato plants draw some of the highest concentration of macro and trace minerals from the earth. Potatoes are also high in potassium and rich in vitamin B6, as well as a fantastic source of amino acids, especially lysine in its bioactive form.
Tomatoes harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver.
Sprouts and microgreens are wonderful for skin repair, and they’re also high in more than 60 trace minerals, including iron, iodine, selenium, zinc, copper, manganese, sulfur, magnesium, chromium, and molybdenum.
Pizza Potato Wrap and Salad Potato Wrap
FOR THE POTATO WRAPS
PIZZA FILLING (OPTION 1)
SALAD FILLING (OPTION 2)
Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
To make the base, add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot and add a steaming basket. Cover the pot and steam the potatoes for 25 to 30 minutes, until soft. Remove and place the potatoes in a food processor with the garlic powder, onion powder, and maple syrup. Blend until smooth.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the mixture on top using a wet spatula, making 2 large tortilla wraps. Place them in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the wraps and pat them down with a spatula. Cool them completely. Flip the wraps upside down onto a clean work surface or cutting board and gently peel off the parchment paper.
To make the Pizza Wrap, make the Pizza Sauce by mixing together the tomato paste, dried oregano, dried thyme, raw honey, and water. Set aside.
If you’re using the mushrooms, add the slices to a small skillet and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned, adding a bit of water if needed to prevent sticking. Remove from the heat and set them aside.
Spread the Pizza Sauce on the wraps and top with the mushrooms (if using), red bell pepper, red onion, and fresh basil. Fold the wraps up gently and serve immediately.
To make the Salad Wrap, arrange the lettuce leaves, alfalfa sprouts, tomato slices, cucumber slices, red onion, and basil or parsley on the wraps. Fold the wraps up gently and serve immediately.

The sugar in honey is nothing like processed sugar—don’t confuse it with table sugar or high-fructose corn syrup. Rather, because bees collect from plant species far and wide, the fructose and glucose in honey are saturated with more than 200,000 undiscovered phytochemical compounds and agents, including pathogen-killers, phytochemicals that help protect you from radiation damage, and anti-cancerous phytochemicals.
Honey’s highly absorbable sugar and B12 coenzymes make it one of the most powerful brain foods of our time. Plus, raw honey helps repairs DNA and is extremely high in minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum, and manganese.
Honey in its raw form is important for supporting immunity and a secret weapon to help with infectious illness. When you’re dealing with weakened immunity and feel like you’re extra susceptible to catching colds, flus, stomach bugs, and food poisoning, raw honey assists your body in keeping a strong first line of defense by strengthening neutrophils and macrophages so they can fight off pathogens. (It’s not yet documented by medical science that these and other white blood cells feed off of immune-stimulating phytochemicals.)
These properties also make raw honey anti-inflammatory—because it helps inhibit pathogens from procreating and thus releasing toxins that elevate inflammation.
How To Use:
Make Medical Medium Lemon, Honey, Ginger Water or simply add to lemon water. Enjoy on top of berries or other fruits. Add to smoothies, dips, or salad dressings. Add to warm (not hot) herbal teas. Chaga tea is especially beneficial when raw honey is added. Use raw honey as a replacement for any other processed sweetener.
For more information on the healing properties of raw honey and the symptoms and conditions it can help with, check out the New York Times best-selling book, Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits & Vegetables, and the other books in the Medical Medium series.
