Pomegranate: Stone & Cyst Dissolver

Pomegranates help to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones, nodules, calcifications, and small cysts such as ganglia cysts. They also have anti-tumor properties.

When you consume fresh pomegranate, a chemical reaction occurs whenever the fruit’s acids (which are filled with phytochemicals such as anthocyanins) come into contact with the types of unhealthy hardenings formed from bile, protein buildup, and toxic forms of calcium. Immediately, they start to break down. Bringing pomegranate into your life on a regular basis is helpful for PCOS.

Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts. It serves an important role in blood sugar, too, by restoring precious glucose reserves to the liver, so that the liver can release this glucose into the bloodstream as needed. This process in turn protects the adrenal glands. If you’re looking for adrenal balance and blood sugar stabilization, turn to pomegranates.

Pomegranates’ high-quality glucose also makes them a brain food, helping with focus and concentration. Pomegranates help unclog pores and hair follicles, encouraging hair growth where it’s needed and helping the skin and scalp overall.

Pomegranates are amazing for regulating hormones, because they flush out toxic ones such as unproductive estrogens that contribute to cancers. This fruit also helps detoxify DDT and other pesticides, eliminate unproductive lactic acid buildup in the muscles, and clear out earwax and minimize new production of it.

How To Use:

Eat one or more pomegranates daily to reap the most benefits. Get creative with how you use pomegranates. Sprinkle the arils on fruit bowls, smoothie bowls, salads, hummus, guacamole, or even on top of a stir-fry you’ve just cooked. You can also make fresh pomegranate juice.

Apples: Colon Cleanser

Apple’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a top pick when you’re faced with practically any illness. Encephalitis (brain inflammation), IBS (intestinal inflammation), and viral infection (which can result in nerve inflammation) are just a few conditions in which apples can play the critical nutritional role of calming your system by helping reduce viral and bacterial loads that create inflammation.

The phytochemicals in apples make them a true brain food, feeding neurons and increasing electrical activity. Apples with red skin contain anthocyanins and even traces of malvidin (a type of anthocyanidin), which are partially responsible for the red color. These pigments have anti-obesity properties and compounds that increase digestive strength, encouraging weight loss.

Apples also have traces of flavonoids, rutin, and quercidin—phytochemicals that are responsible for heavy metal and radiation detoxification—as well as the amino acids glutamine and serine, which help detoxify the brain of MSG. This fruit helps cleanse and purify the organs including the liver, improve circulation in your lymphatic system, repair damaged skin, and regulate blood sugar.

Apples are the ultimate colon cleanser. As the pectin from an apple moves through your gut, it collects and rids your body of microbes such as bacteria, viruses, yeast, and mold. Apples help with SIBO and other digestive disorders.

Apples are also hydrating on a deep, cellular level.

How To Use:

Red-skinned apples with the most color offer the most nutrients. Try eating three apples a day for the best benefits.

Eat apples plain or blended into Medical Medium Applesauce. Eat them with dates and celery sticks for a fantastic adrenal healing snack.

For more information on the healing properties of apples and which 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.


Cabbage: Healing Food

Red cabbage and green cabbage are both fantastic cruciferous vegetables. They have some similar properties while also having their own unique benefits.

Red Cabbage:

The coloring agents that give this crucifer its red-purple hue are at the top of the heap when it comes to disease-fighting pigments. The sulfur in the cabbage carries the phytochemicals from these pigments into the liver with great ease, making red cabbage one of the most rejuvenating foods for the liver. Red cabbage can help with scar tissue in the liver. It also helps minimize pathogens in the intestinal tract.

Green Cabbage:

Green cabbage is very nutritious, wonderful for supporting the joints and helping with osteoporosis especially.

As members of the brassica family, these vegetables provide an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and rich phytochemical sulfur compounds.

How To Use:

Eat red or green cabbage raw in salads or vegetable juices. Enjoy it steamed or stir-fried or in soups. You can also peel off whole cabbage leaves to use as like taco shells to hold your favorite chopped fruits, vegetables, herbs, salsa, and/or healthy sauces.

For more information on the healing properties of cabbage, 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.


Onions: Antibacterial Weapon

Leeks, chives, ramps, scallions, red onions, yellow onions, white onions, shallots, and any other type of allium you enjoy are nature’s antibiotics.

Onions are one of the most accomplished foods on the planet for keeping down bacterial overgrowth in the body, making them a star for anyone who deals with SIBO. This quality also enhances the body’s production of B12.

The sulfur in onions is part of what makes them nature’s antibiotic. It also helps rid the body of radiation exposure, casting out pathogens, and drawing out DDT and other pesticides, herbicides, and toxic heavy metals.

This sulfur also makes onions wonderful for helping with joint pain, degeneration, discomfort, and for repairing tendons and connective tissue. If you have an iron deficiency, onions are also very helpful, because their sulfur content helps slow iron loss.

High in the trace minerals zinc, manganese, iodine, and selenium, onions help rejuvenate the skin and protect the lungs. They’re also helpful for the immune system and circulation.

Onions are very helpful for addressing colds and flus that cause bronchitis, and for bacteria-caused pneumonia. They’re also the ultimate anti-inflammatories for the bowels, helping to heal ulcers, eliminate mucus from the stool, and soothe the intestinal tract

How To Use:

To truly benefit from onions’ antibacterial and other qualities, we have to eat them as often as possible, and not just a slice here or there. Experiment with different varieties of onions in different dishes. Eat onions raw as much as possible in salads, wraps, on top of steamed vegetables, or any meal. You can also enjoy them steamed, stir-fried, in soups, and in Medical Medium Healing Broth.

For more information on the healing properties of onions and the symptoms and conditions they 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.


Red Clover: Lymph Cleanser

Red clover is often thought of as a common weed, when it should be deeply appreciated. Red clover has a generosity of spirit and a sympathetic energy; it actually cares about the person who’s consuming it.

Red clover is the most powerful herb of all to support the lymphatic system and cleanse lymph fluid, and it can be a helpful cancer preventative. This generous wild herb—you can use both the flowers and the leaves—is a diuretic and blood builder for those who are worried about virtually any type of blood disorder or disease, including just toxic blood overall due to the pancreas or liver not functioning properly.

Red clover is loaded with nutrients and disease-fighting alkaloids. It is incredible for remineralization and an amazing replenisher of deficiencies specifically in molybdenum, manganese, selenium, iron, magnesium, vitamin A, B vitamins, cofactors of vitamins (phytonutrients that are not yet on the radar of medical research), and more. Red clover’s alkaloids work hand in hand with its amino acids to break up and reduce stored-up, unnecessary fat, so it can be flushed out of the body. It’s one of the ultimate drivers of weight loss of our time.

Red clover has an energizing effect, making it a stellar herb for someone who’s feeling exhausted, fatigued, or depleted. Red clover also helps to cleanse toxic heavy metals and pesticides such as DDT.

How To Use:

If you or your doctor are concerned that you have nutrient deficiencies, drink three cups daily of red clover tea.

For more information on the healing properties of red clover 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.


Melons: Cleansing Food

Melons hold properties that can be critical to move someone forward in the healing process.

Melons are predigested—meaning that melon flesh is so assimilable that our digestive systems barely need to process it when it enters the body. The fructose in melon leaves the stomach in less than one minute, then the rest of the fruit drops directly into the intestinal tract, immediately fortifying and replenishing the body.

Eating melon is like getting intravenous nutrient therapy. Melons are essentially balls of purified water. This highly active fluid binds onto poisons, including mold, mycotoxins, viral neurotoxins, undigested protein toxins, ammonia gas, and bacterial toxins, flushing them out to allow the immune system to restore itself.

Melon’s high electrolyte content helps protect the brain and the rest of the nervous system from stress-related strokes, aneurysms, and embolisms. Melon thins the blood and reduces heart attack risk, helps prevent heart disease and vascular issues, and can help with liver and kidney disease.

The water in melon is nearly identical to our blood, and its sodium, potassium, and glucose are also abundant and bioavailable, making melon one of the most hydrating foods you can eat.

Melon is one of the most alkalizing foods. The fruit helps drive out traces of DDT, other pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals from deep within the organs.

High in silica, melon is an excellent food to help ligaments, joints, bones, teeth, connective tissue, and tendons. Melon is one of the most powerful glucose balancers, working to prevent insulin resistance and lower elevated A1C levels.

How To Use:

To reap melon’s benefits, try eating at least half of a small melon per day. Eat melon alone for best digestion, not with any other fruit or food.

For more information on melons and the symptoms and conditions they 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.


Figs: Brain & Gut Food

If you’re seeking answers for brain and gut health, look no further than the fig. It’s the ultimate tool for balancing these two intertwined aspects of well-being. Figs have unique phytochemicals that are bonded to minerals such as bioavailable potassium and sodium that specifically nourish and build neurotransmitters while also supporting neurons and synapses in the brain. It’s a powerful fruit for helping to prevent Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, and other neurological diseases, including ALS.

On the intestinal side, figs are, like dates, one of the most effective bowel-cleansing foods on the planet. The skins feed good gut bacteria and are also antiseptic, killing unproductive gut bacteria, parasites, mold, and toxic heavy metals, while the seeds get into intestinal crevices and help destroy disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungus that hide in those pockets. The fruit’s pulp and fiber massage the intestinal lining and build up the digestive immune system to help you stop struggling with stomach pain and bloating.

Figs help with all types of gut problems, including diverticulitis, appendix inflammation, constipation, inflamed colon, and complications from C. difficile.

Figs are high in vitamins such as the B vitamins, which are specifically bonded to phytochemicals to reduce radiation in the body. Also abundant in trace minerals, micronutrients, antioxidants, and more, figs are a wonder food for all manner of ills; they should never be overlooked. The next time you’re dealing with any health issue, think of figs as a secret weapon.

How To Use:

To connect with everything figs can offer you, both nutrient-wise and metaphysically, try to eat nine figs in a day (or a multiple of nine). Munching on a celery stick (rich in mineral salts) with each fig you eat is a perfect nutritional combination.

For more information on the healing benefits of figs and the symptoms and conditions they 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.
