With the complex flavor of tomatoes and garlic combined with the earthy mushrooms and bold spices of chili powder and cumin, this bolognese is a delicious raw take on the traditional dish that is sure to leave you satisfied! 

Zucchini is rich in poly-phenolic antioxidants which are essential in helping to protect the body from aging, illness, and disease. Zucchini is also a good source of potassium which is an important intra-cellular electrolyte that helps to maintain fluid balance and normalize blood pressure and is vital in helping to prevent heart attacks and stroke. 

Zucchini contains phytonutrients that are important for prostate health as they can help to reduce the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BOH). They also contain powerful anti-inflammatory compounds which can aid asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Zucchini is also known to be particularly beneficial for hypertension, cataracts, macular degeneration, atherosclerosis, diabetes, edema, multiple sclerosis, and stomach and colon cancers. 

Mushrooms have powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can effectively regulate inflammation in the heart, joints, organs, and tissues making them especially good for those who suffer with arthritis, heart disease, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Mushrooms also contain an antioxidant compound called L-ergothioneine which is known to be incredibly important for cognitive function, eye health, reproductive health, and lung health. 

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 4 large zucchini*, peeled
  • 2 cups sun dried tomatoes 
  • 2 cups tomatoes

  • 3 cups mushrooms

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 date

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1⁄4 cup parsley

  • 2 leaves of basil 
  • 1 tsp each of cumin and chili powder and poultry seasoning blend
  • 1⁄2 tsp each of sea salt, paprika 
  • 1 pinch dried oregano 

DIRECTIONS: 

Turn the zucchini into noodles using a spiralizer, a julienne peeler or normal peeler. If using a normal peeler, pat noodles dry before portioning into bowls. 

Set aside 1 cup of mushrooms before combining all remaining ingredients in a food processor. Process until well combined into a thick sauce. Slice remaining mushrooms and stir in. Top zoodle bowls with a hearty portion of the sauce and enjoy. 

Notes 

*Cucumber can be used in place of zucchini for noodles 

Serves 2-4

Whether you love garlic or take pains to avoid it, one thing’s for certain: garlic deserves to be heralded as medicine for our world today. Used to enhance vitality since ancient times, garlic is more important for our well-being now than ever before. To give garlic its proper due would take a book on its own. Suffice it to say that like its relative the onion, garlic is multifaceted, playing many different roles in protecting a person’s health, and has substantial reach in what it can do for someone. Garlic is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal (including anti-mold), anti-parasitic, and rich in the phytochemical allicin, a sulfur compound that prevents disease. 

Contrary to some mistaken theories, garlic does not kill productive bacteria in the intestinal tract. It only kills unproductive bacteria, which runs on a positive frequency. Don’t confuse this with the term gram-positive, which doesn’t actually refer to electrical charge. Both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria that are harmful to humans run on a positive frequency. On the other hand, productive, beneficial bacteria (regardless of whether they’re gram-negative or gram-positive) run on a negative frequency, the same frequency that humans run on. Not to be mistaken for negative, unfavorable energy, this negative charge is a good thing; it’s our source of grounding. Unproductive bacteria, worms and other parasites, fungi, and viruses all run on a positive charge. When they take hold in our systems, they drain our batteries, and we lose our grounding. Then along comes garlic, which has anti-pathogenic properties that are positively charged. This like fights like, and garlic rids us of the pathogens that were harming us. Because beneficial bacteria in our guts and other microorganisms that benefit us are negatively charged and grounded, garlic doesn’t wipe them out. 

While there is a certain abrasive aspect to garlic, it is abrasiveness that’s to your bene t. Rest assured that garlic does not disrupt anything that shouldn’t be disrupted—it does not hurt you. On the contrary, it’s perfect to fight colds, us, strep throat, pneumonia-causing bacteria, and viral-related cancers. It also extracts toxic heavy metals in the colon and gives you a powerful immune boost. 

CONDITIONS 

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

Strep throat, vaginal strep, strep-induced acne, other conditions related to Streptococcus A and B, yeast infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs) such as bladder infections and kidney infections, staph infections, edema, sties, low reproductive system battery, ear infections, sinus infections, chronic sinusitis, immune system deficiencies, H. pylori infection, common colds, influenza, bacterial pneumonia, breast cancer, laryngitis, intestinal cancers, stomach cancer, esophageal cancer, prostate cancer, lymphoma (including non-Hodgkin’s), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mononucleosis, thyroid disease, adrenal fatigue, migraines, sleep apnea, Lyme disease, psoriatic arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1), herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2), HHV-6, infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ulcerative colitis, chronic bronchitis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer 

SYMPTOMS 

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

Swelling of the lymphatic system, inflammation, Bell’s palsy, earache, postnasal drip, headaches, digestive distress, canker sores, enlarged spleen, all neurological symptoms (including tingles, numbness, spasms, twitches, nerve pain, and tightness of the chest), appendix inflammation, trouble breathing, back pain, bad breath, cough, chest pain, congestion, chest tightness, eye oaters, excess mucus, fever, fatigue, liver stagnation, headaches, neck pain, sinus pain, Candida overgrowth 

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT 

When you’re at a fragile point and you feel vulnerable and exposed in your workplace, at home, or in a new relationship, turn to garlic. It’s the food to bring into your life when you need protection and shelter. 

SPIRITUAL LESSON 

Before it can be harvested, garlic needs plenty of time to rest. It thrives on that time of nesting and quiet, covered over by the soil in the garden bed, when it can absorb nutrients and build up its own immune system against the pathogens that go after plant life, such as mold and other fungi, worms, and bugs; it strengthens during the growing season so it can pass on that strength to us. Take a cue from garlic, and stake out your own nesting period each year. In order to build up our physical reserves and spiritual immune systems, we all need a periodic time out from pollutions, pathogens, stress, and those people in our lives who drain our energy. Renewed, we can be better prepared for our own growing seasons. 

TIPS 

* Take a look at a bulb of garlic. It is perfectly packaged in little self-sealed doses—that is, cloves. This is God and Mother Nature’s way of providing you with easy-to-take medicine to keep you healthy. Treat a bulb of garlic as if it were a bundle of premeasured medicinal supplements, and try to get into a rhythm where you consume one clove per day. Don’t worry that the cloves are different sizes—smaller cloves have higher concentrations of nutrients, so each “dose” is comparable. 


* Although roasting or otherwise cooking garlic is delicious and valuable, garlic is most effective when consumed raw. Try mixing raw garlic into your favorite dips, salad dressings, chilled soups, and other dishes. 


* If you feel like you’re coming down with something like a sore throat, cold, or u, mince one raw clove of garlic and mash it into half an avocado, banana, or some cooked potato. Repeat this three times daily until you feel better. 


GARLIC TAHINI SALAD DRESSING 

It’s easy to make a big batch of this salad dressing and keep it in your fridge all week long. The classic Mediterranean flavors of olive oil and tahini blend wonderfully with garlic and the subtle sweetness from the dates. Enjoy this dressing atop any greens of your choice or use it as a dip for your favorite veggies. 

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour over your favorite salad greens and enjoy.

It doesn’t get more simple and delicious than this picture perfect raspberry tart. And it’s so full of amazing ingredients that you can even eat it in the morning for breakfast! This dessert takes less than 15 minutes to come together, is fat free, and full of bright flavor.

Raspberries are one of the top antioxidant fruits and are an essential food for optimum health. Raspberries are rich in vitamins C, A, E, K, and B-complex and minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. They are also high in ellagic acid which is a medicinal compound that helps to prevent cancer as well as benign and malignant growths. 

Raspberries have powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-aging properties making them particularly beneficial for autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, heart disease, scleroderma, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, lupus, and colon, breast, prostate, stomach, and lung cancer. They also contain a compound called raspberry ketone that has been shown to increase the metabolism of fat cells which provides benefits for those trying to lose weight. 

In addition, raspberry ketones have also been shown to improve insulin balance and blood sugar regulation making it a great food for those who have type 2 diabetes. Raspberries have the ability to cleanse mucus and toxins out of the body and to help balance the endocrine system, reproductive system, and neurological system. They are also excellent for cardiovascular, circulatory, and cognitive health. Raspberries are an easily digestible and completely assimilable fruit which ensures ultimate absorption of its healing and nutritive properties.

Leeks, chives, ramps, scallions, red onions, yellow onions, white onions, shallots, and any other type of allium you enjoy are nature’s antibiotics. Unfortunately, people don’t often eat a high volume of onions—maybe just a wedge in soup once a month, or a slice once a week on top of salad. To truly benefit from onions’ antibacterial qualities, we have to make them more central to our lives.

Some people complain of digestive distress when they eat onions. Contrary to popular belief, though, onions are not irritants. Rather, they’re highly medicinal. An upset stomach from onions is an indication that someone has an elevated level of unproductive bacteria in the digestive tract. The onions are working to eliminate that bacteria, and the resulting die-off can translate to temporary discomfort. 

One particular condition that many people deal with these days is SIBO, which is largely a mystery to the medical eld. What’s usually responsible for this small intestinal bacterial overgrowth are Streptococcus A and B, various strains of E. coli, C. difficile, H. pylori, Staphylococcus, and/or different varieties of fungus (excluding Candida, the natural fungus that we need to survive). 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. If you avoid onions because of a sensitive digestive tract, try adding them back into your diet in very small amounts at first. Over time, their cleansing effect will enable you to tolerate larger servings of them.

We’d all do well to make friends with onions. The sulfur they contain (including the phytochemical allicin, other organosulfides, and sulfur compounds that haven’t yet been uncovered in research) is part of what makes onions nature’s antibiotic. It’s also responsible for ridding the body of radiation exposure, casting out viruses, and drawing out DDT and other pesticides, herbicides, and toxic heavy metals. The sulfur in onions makes them wonderful for alleviating 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 slows iron loss. 

High in the trace minerals zinc, manganese, iodine, and selenium, onions help rejuvenate the skin and protect the lungs. If you’d like your skin to look younger, it’s a great idea to eat onions daily. Same goes if you used to be a smoker, and you’d like to repair some of that damage to your lungs. Onions are very helpful for addressing colds and us 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. 

In old folklore, garlic was used to keep ghosts and ghouls away. Onions should share a similar reputation—for keeping pathogenic ghouls away. Making them part of your diet will give you a powerful immune boost and safeguard against the pathogenic world. The next time you go out to buy cough syrup or decongestant, pick up a few different types of onions at the same time— though they may not be in the same aisle, onions truly are medicine. 

CONDITIONS 

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

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); emphysema; breast cancer; bone cancer; diverticulitis; ear infections; influenza; conjunctivitis; sties; hypertension; leukemia; migraines; prostate cancer; ringworm; rosacea; staph infections; small intestinal bacterial over- growth (SIBO); halitosis; Lyme disease; liver disease; fatty liver; herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1); herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2); HHV-6; HHV-7; the undiscovered HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12; urinary tract infections (UTIs); colds; Epstein-Barr virus (EBV); yeast infections; transient ischemic attack (TIA) 

SYMPTOMS 

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

Bad breath, heartburn, canker sores, iron deficiency, joint inflammation, tendon inflammation (particularly Achilles inflammation), eye issues, cold hands and feet, scars, snoring, joint pain, joint discomfort, shortness of breath, all neurological symptoms (including tingles, numbness, poor circulation, spasms, twitches, nerve pain, and tightness of the chest), restless leg syndrome, gastritis, body stiffness, body aches and pains, dizziness, dry skin, enlarged spleen, hot flashes, inflammation, jaw pain, knee pain, tremors, weakness, mineral deficiencies 

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT 

When you’re dealing with chronic frustration, anger, and aggravation—whether toward other people, events, or yourself—it’s critical to bring onions into your routine. Onions purge anger from the body, helping to loosen up resentment, fury, vexation, and disappointment so you can be free to live your life 

SPIRITUAL LESSON 

Onions are wrongly blamed for bad breath. In fact, the opposite is true—onions help alleviate bad breath. What’s really responsible for halitosis is unproductive bacteria in the gut that rises up to the mouth. Because onions are antibacterial, they help combat this problem, so that your breath becomes sweeter-smelling over time. Right after you eat an onion, there may be a lingering scent—this is just the onion’s natural sulfur, and a sign that it’s doing its job. While we focus on different toothpastes, mouthwashes, and breath mints as the answer for halitosis and scorn the onion as the enemy, it’s really our savior. 

Have you ever seen this phenomenon take place in your life, where someone who worked hard to alleviate a problem mistakenly got the blame for creating the issue? It happens so often, from a supervisor at work whom employees disrespect even though that supervisor is saving their jobs, to a parent who gets flak from a child for pointing out a mistake on homework, when learning the right answer will be a key to the child’s success that semester. The next time you’re in a situation where you’re quick to point a finger, keep in mind the plight of the onion, and take a moment to analyze every angle. 

TIPS

* Avoid the tip you’ll hear out there to rinse or soak onions to make them less pungent. This technique lowers onions’ potency, because it dilutes the medicinal properties that kill off bacteria and boost your immune system to keep you healthy.

* Whenever you eat a food that you know isn’t a healthy choice, incorporate some onions to counteract the detrimental effects. (This doesn’t mean you should order a plate of onion rings. Dipped in bad batter and fried in bad oil, onion rings are not advisable. Rather, if you’re eating a hot dog, pile some chopped raw onion on top.)

* When you’re eating out at restaurants and are concerned about picking up flu, viruses, norovirus, or food poisoning, order something with onions. For example, if you order a salad, get it with onion to kill off any contaminants.

* When picking out onions at the market, make sure each onion is rm and doesn’t cave in when you squeeze it. Try to avoid onions that are sprouting new green tips. (This is different from buying a fresh-picked onion with its greens still attached—those onion greens are very beneficial.)

* Experiment with different varieties of onions in different dishes. Try chives in guacamole, scallions in hummus, red onions in salads and stir-fries, leeks in soups, or try steamed yellow or white onions.

* If you’re dealing with sinus congestion, cold, or u, try placing chopped onion in a bowl of warm to hot water, draping a towel over your head and the bowl, and inhaling. This is a great technique for breaking up mucus and loosening congestion.

* If you get chilly easily, have difficulty warming up, always have to wear a sweater, and/or struggle with cold hands and feet, try to incorporate onions into your daily routine to increase circulation.

ONIONS STUFFED WITH MASHED POTATOES AND MUSHROOMS 

These beautiful baked onions look like a restaurant-quality dish and are surprisingly easy to make. They look stunning on any dinner table and worthy of any party occasion. If you don’t enjoy mush- rooms, feel free to get creative and substitute the sautéed vegetable of your choice. 

  • 8 large onions 
  • 8 cups diced potatoes 
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves 
  • 8 cups chopped mushrooms 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning 
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prep the onions by cutting off the top quarter of each. On the opposite end of each onion, cut off the root so that the onion can rest on a at surface. Do not peel. Place the onions in a large baking dish and add an inch of water. Bake until the onions are cooked through, checking periodically, 45 to 60 minutes. (Onions are done when they are soft and fragrant.) Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Peel the onions, then carefully remove the inner layers using a fork until only 2 layers remain, forming a cup. Reserve the insides of the onions for later use. 

Fill a large sauté pan with an inch of water and bring to a boil. Place the potatoes in the pan, cover, and steam for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally and adding more water if needed to prevent sticking. Place the potatoes in a food processor with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1⁄2 teaspoon of rosemary leaves. Process until the potatoes are smooth. Set aside. 

For the mushroom filling, sauté the mushrooms and garlic in 1 teaspoon of olive oil until the mushrooms are tender and juicy, adding water as needed to prevent sticking. Transfer all but 1 cup of the sautéed mushrooms to a food processor with 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, and 2 cups of the reserved onion. Process until the mixture is roughly combined. 

Fill the onion cups with alternating layers of mushroom filling and mashed potatoes. Top with sautéed mushrooms and pine nuts. Serve and enjoy!

While traditional nachos may involve chips, these soft and golden "Nachos Style" Baked Potatoes from my book Thyroid Healing leave nothing to be desired. Cooked perfectly in the oven until crispy on the outside and tender in the middle, then piled high with the familiar flavors of avocado, tomato, onion, and cilantro, these potatoes will disappear fast, so you may want to make a double batch.

Not only are these "nachos" incredibly delicious and satisfying, they're also packed full of healing ingredients! Let's take a look now at some of the ingredients and their undiscovered healing properties that I share in Thyroid Healing. 

Potatoes are frequently labeled as a “white” food that’s devoid of nutrition, but potatoes are actually one of the most powerful anti-EBV foods. High in lysine, they also contain tyrosine, a chemical needed to produce thyroid hormones.

Avocados contain phytochemicals that protect the lining of the digestive tract from EBV’s cofactor, strep bacteria. They also contain an easily assimilable form of copper that helps balance T4 and T3 thyroid hormone production. Avocados’ form of natural glucose calms sensitive nerves throughout the body that have been irritated by viral neurotoxins.

Tomatoes contain their own variety of vitamin C that’s bioavailable to the lymphatic system and liver, supports the immune system to keep it strong against EBV, and prohibits the virus from traveling through the body with ease. This vitamin C is also a support to the thyroid’s own immune system in the neck area. When growing, tomatoes absorb and collect the moonlight’s frequency at night, just as the thyroid collects the sun’s rays during the day (as you’ll read about in Chapter 25 of Thyroid Healing. This means that when consumed, tomatoes strengthen the thyroid’s undiscovered radio-like frequencies, helping to create balance and homeostasis with all of the body’s organs and glands. Find out more about the unknown true purpose of the thyroid in Thyroid Healing

Onions and scallions are a fantastic resource for their sulfur content’s ability to confuse and knock down EBV while it nourishes the gland itself. As with cruciferous vegetables, that pungent quality is exactly what gives them their value. Onions are a big deal for fighting EBV—bottom line, a potent antiviral. 

Cilantro is a miracle worker for EBV. Critical for binding onto the toxic heavy metals such as mercury and lead that feed the virus. Also binds onto the EBV neurotoxins that, when loose in your system, can cause tingles and numbness, aches and pains, inflammation, depression, and anxiety. 

Lemons and limes improve digestion by raising levels of hydrochloric acid (good acid) in the gut. They tone the intestinal lining, cleanse the liver, and offer replenishing calcium to prevent osteoporosis when EBV prompts nodule formation throughout the body, which uses up calcium stores. Lemons and limes also balance sodium levels in the blood, which allows for electrolytes to become active and improves the neurotransmitter activity that has been hampered by EBV neurotoxins causing brain fog and other neurological symptoms.

Garlic is an antiviral and antibacterial that defends against EBV by killing off virus cells. It slso kills off strep, the EBV cofactor, allowing for fewer UTIs, sinus infections, and opportunities for SIBO. Garlic helps flush toxic viral and bacterial waste out of the lymphatic system.

"Nachos Style" Baked Potatoes Recipe 

Nachos ingredients: 

  • 6 medium potatoes 
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil 
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, divided 
  • 1 avocado, diced 
  • 1 cup diced tomato 
  • 1 cup diced onion 
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped 
  • ½ jalapeño, minced (optional) 
  • 2 limes 
  • ¼ cup Garlic Cashew Aioli (optional, recipe also from Thyroid Healing)

Garlic Cashew Aioli ingredients:

Directions: 

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Peel and slice the potatoes into rounds that are ¼ inch to ½ inch thick. Toss them with the coconut oil and ¼ teaspoon of the sea salt. Arrange the potatoes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Leave space so that they are not touching or overlapping. Bake the potatoes for 20 minutes, flip, and then bake for 10 more minutes. 

While the potatoes bake, combine the avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and the juice of both limes in a small mixing bowl. 

Make the Aioli by combining the cashews, olive oil, garlic, juice of two lemons, and sea salt in the blender with ½ cup of water. Blend until smooth for a thicker aioli. For a thinner consistency, continue to stream in another ½ cup of water while blending. 

Arrange the potato slices in a pile on a serving plate. Top with the avocado salsa and lightly drizzle the Garlic Cashew Aioli over the top if desired (save the rest for topping other meals). Finish the nachos off with the remaining sea salt and enjoy!

Tips:

* Experiment with different varieties of potatoes for different nutrients, flavors, and textures. 

* For a make-ahead trick, try peeling and slicing the potatoes in advance and storing them in a bowl of cold water in the fridge. They will keep well for up to three days this way; just change the water daily and enjoy having potatoes ready to go at a moment’s notice.

Smoothies are a great way to get in a variety of healing ingredients in one go. This this Thyroid Healing Smoothie from my book Thyroid Healing can be customized with whichever healing foods you want (see the suggested additions), and it will only ever be amazing for you!

Thyroid Healing Smoothie 

Depending on which of the additions you use, this smoothie's healing properties will vary. But you can feel great about all of them! Let's take a look at some of the ingredients and their undiscovered healing properties that I share in Thyroid Healing. 

Mangoes contain a tremendous amount of carotene to restore the spleen and liver, feed the brain, and purge the lymphatic system of viral waste-matter toxins. Mangoes also provide bioactive magnesium and glucose that calm nerves to aid in sleep issues caused by EBV.

Bananas provide amino acids and the right kind of potassium to rebuild neurotransmitters after they’ve been burnt out by viral neurotoxins. They're also powerful for their antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Bananas are a wonderful calcium source because the trees grow in calcium-rich soil and they’re also a great tool for hypoglycemia, as they help balance blood sugar. Don’t worry about the fad that says bananas have too much sugar. Their fruit sugar is actually critical brain food, plus it’s bonded to the amino acids and minerals that give bananas their life-changing nutrition.

Spinach creates an alkaline environment in the body and provides highly absorbable micronutrients to the nervous system. This wonderful leafy green binds onto and removes the jelly-like viral waste matter in the liver that can contribute to mystery weight gain and mystery heart flutters. Especially good at rejuvenating skin and turning around conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Arugula reduces nodules, tumors, and cysts in the thyroid (both cancerous and benign) and helps prevent EBV-related thyroid cancer in the first place. Arugula’s phytochemical compounds enter into the thyroid, rejuvenating tissue there while reducing thyroid scar tissue. These compounds also push out old storage bins of thyroid medication from the liver.

Atlantic sea vegetables (especially dulse and kelp): Just as we put iodine on wounds, the iodine content of Atlantic sea vegetables such as dulse is an antiseptic for the thyroid—when it soaks into the gland, it becomes one of the thyroid’s most powerful fighting mechanisms next to zinc. Luckily, dulse and other sea vegetables also contain some zinc. These two precious minerals at work together can stop a viral infection in the thyroid, bringing down thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) in the process. Sea vegetables also help protect the thyroid from radiation’s effects, remove radiation from the thyroid, and prevent thyroid cancer.

Ginger helps with nutrient assimilation and relieves spasms. Loaded with its own signature variety of bioavailable vitamin C, ginger is also a powerful antiviral. One of ginger’s special qualities is its ability to bring the body out of a reactive state by soothing nerves and muscles. Ginger helps bring balance and homeostasis to the thyroid, lifting it up if it’s hypo and calming it down if it’s hyper.

Oranges provide a rich source of calcium, which is vital when your body needs the mineral to block EBV from causing thyroid damage. Getting plenty of bioavailable calcium—the best source is citrus—prevents your body from needing to tap into the calcium reserves in your bones. Oranges’ and tangerines’ vitamin C content, too, is a tool against EBV, helping to revive the liver from EBV damage and purge the organ of fat and EBV debris, in the process helping you lose weight.

Cilantro is a miracle worker for EBV. Critical for binding onto the toxic heavy metals such as mercury and lead that feed the virus. Also binds onto the EBV neurotoxins that, when loose in your system, can cause tingles and numbness, aches and pains, inflammation, depression, and anxiety. 

Aloe Vera gel from a fresh aloe leaf is a wonderful antiviral that also flushes toxins out of the bloodstream and body, helping to purge the liver specifically of toxins such as pesticides. Aloe supports the adrenals and draws radiation out of the thyroid.

Raspberries are a great full-body detoxifying food, rich in antioxidants that specifically remove EBV’s byproduct and other viral debris from the bloodstream, allowing for easier overall cleansing. Raspberries also tend to bind onto and remove impurities delivered to the intestinal tract by a liver burdened by viral waste matter.

Who doesn’t love pancakes—especially when they are packed with only the very best ingredients? These delicious pancakes featured in my book Thyroid Healing may well become a weekend staple for you to enjoy with family and friends. The star ingredients of these delicious pancakes are the wild blueberries, banana, raw honey, and maple syrup. Each ingredient not only tastes wonderful but also offers incredible healing properties. Let's take a look at them. 

Wild blueberries help restore the central nervous system and flush viral neurotoxins out of the liver. They contain exceptionally powerful antioxidants that help repair your thyroid’s tissue and reduce the growth of nodules. They also help remove toxic heavy metals from the brain and liver. Ultimately, this all means that wild blueberries stop a shrinking brain and a shrinking thyroid. Not to be confused with their larger, cultivated cousins, wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of many grocery stores.

Bananas provide amino acids and the right kind of potassium to rebuild neurotransmitters after they’ve been burnt out by viral neurotoxins. They're also powerful for their antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Bananas are a wonderful calcium source because the trees grow in calcium-rich soil and they’re also a great tool for hypoglycemia, as they help balance blood sugar. Don’t worry about the fad that says bananas have too much sugar. Their fruit sugar is actually critical brain food, plus it’s bonded to the amino acids and minerals that give bananas their life-changing nutrition.

Raw honey is the best replenishing fuel there is to feed and revitalize the thyroid. The glucose and other nutrients in raw honey practically get mainlined into the thyroid to feed the gland. Medical science doesn’t yet have its finger on the pulse of the symbiotic relationship between honey and the thyroid. Honey is an antiviral, too, that helps fight viruses with its zinc content.

Maple syrup holds dozens of trace minerals that fortify the brain and the rest of the nervous system, protecting them from oxidation due to heavy metal damage and viral neurotoxins. Maple syrup helps to build glycogen storage banks in the liver and brain to help balance blood sugar, which keeps the adrenals strong and stable so they can support the thyroid.

When making this recipe, it's important to note that this batter behaves a little differently than traditional pancake batter, so make sure to follow the directions closely. If you run into trouble using a skillet, try baking them instead for great results.

Wild Blueberry Banana Pancakes 

Ingredients:

Directions:

1. For the batter, blend the bananas, honey, baking powder, and sea salt together with the water until smooth. Add the almond flour and potato starch and continue to blend until a thick, even batter forms. 

2. To cook on the skillet: Heat ½ teaspoon of coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour the batter into the skillet by heaping tablespoons of it to create small pancakes. If needed, use the back of the spoon to smooth the batter evenly into a circle. Cook the pancakes for 2½ to 3 minutes, then flip and cook for 4 minutes on the other side until cooked through. Because of the banana, the inside of the pancake will remain moist even when they are done. 

3. To bake in the oven: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and lightly grease the parchment paper with coconut oil. Spoon the batter onto the baking trays in 3-inch circles. If needed, use the back of a spoon to smooth the batter evenly. Bake the pancakes in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges turn golden, then flip and bake for 2 minutes more. 

4. For the wild blueberry maple syrup, combine ½ cup of maple syrup and 1 cup of wild blueberries in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the syrup for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently until it is hot and well combined.

5. Stack the pancakes on a plate and serve topped with wild blueberry maple syrup.

Tips:

* This batter, while completely delicious, does not behave exactly like traditional pancake batter. It will be slightly thicker, which means you may need to use a spoon to smooth it into shape.

* Additionally, the pancakes need to be flipped before they seem ready. The batter should hold together well, though, so slip the spatula underneath quickly and give them a good flip.

Makes 16 small pancakes

Sometimes it can feel challenging to stick to healthier ways of eating when all around you, others seem to indulge in less-than-productive foods. With this antiviral, mineral-rich broth—a cornerstone of the Thyroid Cleanse Month featured in my book Thyroid Healing—you can give yourself a nourishing, comforting boost any time. If you’d like, keep a mug of it by your side all day, refilling as you desire.

Thyroid Healing includes over 25 delicious recipes for you and your loved ones to enjoy that also support you in healing from thyroid problems and countless other symptoms and conditions. Along with these recipes, you'll also read about the 90-day Thyroid Rehab plan in Thyroid Healing. The Thyroid Rehab plan offers you three choices for how to move forward with healing so you can see which fits your needs and lifestyle the best. I included Thyroid Rehab in the book to help you to enter a new phase in life: healing, becoming, rebirth. As you follow the steps and suggestions outlined, you will be opening yourself up to transformation.

The information I share with you in Thyroid Healing is there to bring you real answers and clarity on what’s going on in your body and the most effective steps and tools you can use to heal. If you’re an avid reader of health books and articles and you think you’re aware of the latest thyroid health information, you’re going to be more than surprised—maybe even shocked—at how much more there is to know. The information in Thyroid Healing is like nothing you have read or heard, and it will bring you true comprehension of the undiscovered inner mechanics of our thyroids for the first time ever.

Thyroid Healing Broth 

This wonderfully nourishing and comforting healing broth contains a selection of powerhouse ingredients for the thyroid and other glands and organs of the body. Let's take a look at some of the healing properties of a few of them... 

Parsley removes high levels of copper and aluminum, which feed Epstein-Barr virus and in turn cause skin problems. It also bolsters production of the thyroid hormone T3 by helping to feed and restore the thyroid.

Thyme is an incredible antiviral that’s integral to cleaning up every thyroid disease. Its nutritional compounds get into the thyroid, killing off viruses and allowing the thyroid to regain control of itself, while this valuable food also knocks down the viral load throughout the body, helping to relieve a multitude of symptoms.

Sweet potatoes help cleanse and detox the liver from viral byproduct and toxins. They also help nourish the skin and support the adrenal glands. In addition, they help reduce fibroids and cysts throughout the body.

Celery strengthens hydrochloric acid in the gut and helps the liver produce bile to break down food. It provides mineral salts that help support the central nervous system with powerful electrolytes while they stabilize and support the adrenal glands. Celery has the ability to cleanse the thyroid of viral toxins and also bolsters the production of the thyroid hormone T3.

Onions are fantastic for their sulfur content’s ability to confuse and knock down viruses while it nourishes the thyroid gland itself. As with cruciferous vegetables, that pungent quality is exactly what gives them their value. Onions are a potent antiviral.

Garlic is an antiviral and antibacterial that kills off virus cells. It also kills off strep allowing for fewer UTIs, sinus infections, and opportunities for SIBO. It helps flush toxic viral and bacterial waste out of the lymphatic system.

Turmeric helps restore thyroid tissue, allowing the thyroid to regenerate and restore. Works on addressing viral issues throughout the body, acting as an anti-inflammatory as it reduces your viral load.

Ginger helps with nutrient assimilation and relieves spasms. Loaded with its own signature variety of bioavailable vitamin C, ginger is also a powerful antiviral. One of ginger’s special qualities is its ability to bring the body out of a reactive state by soothing nerves and muscles. Ginger helps bring balance and homeostasis to the thyroid, lifting it up if it’s hypo and calming it down if it’s hyper.

Atlantic sea vegetables (especially dulse and kelp) contain iodine that is an antiseptic for the thyroid—when it soaks into the gland, it becomes one of the thyroid’s most powerful fighting mechanisms next to zinc. Luckily, dulse and other sea vegetables also contain some zinc. These two precious minerals at work together can stop a viral infection in the thyroid, bringing down thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) in the process. Sea vegetables also help protect the thyroid from radiation’s effects, remove radiation from the thyroid, and prevent thyroid cancer.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 4 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch turmeric root, minced
  • 1 inch ginger root, minced
  • 2 tablespoons dulse flakes
  • 1 tablespoon kelp powder
  • 8 cups water

Directions

Place the sweet potatoes, celery, onions, garlic, turmeric, parsley, thyme sprigs, dulse flakes, and kelp powder into a large pot along with the water. Bring the broth to a boil and then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Simmer the broth for one hour. Strain and enjoy as a healing, restorative broth that can be sipped throughout the day.

Tips

* This recipe may also be enjoyed as a chunky vegetable soup by leaving the vegetables in the broth.

* Alternatively, you can make a simple purée out of this recipe. Use an immersion blender to purée the vegetables smooth or transfer in small batches to a standing blender. Make sure to leave a vent for steam to escape through the top of the standing blender!

* You’re welcome to make a large batch of this soup and freeze the leftovers to use throughout the week. Try freezing the broth in an ice cube tray for easy thawing later.

* If you’d like to make this soup a little more decadent to share with company, you can add a pinch of salt and a little splash of coconut oil or coconut milk into each individual bowl just before serving.

Makes 1 to 4 servings
