Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog articles: RECIPES. I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!

Passersby at the supermarket usually ignore the humble papaya. Little do they know that by avoiding this fruit, they’re missing out on a piece of their salvation. If you’re struggling with any kind of stomach or intestinal disorder, papayas cannot be beat. They can reverse colitis, Crohn’s, IBS, ulcers, diverticulitis, gastritis, gastric spasms, liver disease, and pancreatitis. They also kill off H. pylori, C. difficile, and E. coli, plus rid the gut of other unfriendly bacteria and parasites, including worms. Papaya is an ideal food if you’re dealing with SIBO.

Papaya is the number-one fruit for digestibility. Each papaya contains more than 500 undiscovered powerful digestive enzymes that support the pancreas, aid digestion, and mend the walls of the intestinal tract, reducing inflammation and preventing scar tissue from forming there. Papaya’s amino acids and enzymes combined create undiscovered subcompound phytochemicals that repel viruses. Papaya also contains potent and as yet undiscovered coenzymes that enhance the alkalinity inside the intestinal tract.

If you need help relieving constipation, papaya is for you. If you suffer from stomach- aches or an inflamed intestinal lining, papaya will be your ally in healing the irritated nerve endings that contribute to these ailments. Whenever someone has gone through a period of not eating, whether from fasting, anorexia, or grave illness, blended papaya is like magic for the refeeding process, because it offers ample calories, optimal nutrition, and digests so favorably. 

Papaya is also a miracle worker for the skin. This fruit has anti-wrinkle, fountain-of-youth powers due to its high content of vitamins, minerals, and most important, caratenoids. Not only can it help your skin glow again, it can also clear up eczema, psoriasis, and acne. 

CONDITIONS 

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

Constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, colitis, ulcers, diverticulitis, liver disease, gallbladder disease, parasites, C. difficile infection, E. coli infection, H. pylori infection, worms, eczema, psoriasis, acne, gastroparesis, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/ mononucleosis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), shingles, Lyme disease, all autoimmune diseases and disorders, migraines, depression, urinary tract infections (UTIs), incontinence, diabetes, hypoglycemia, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, blood disorders, enterocutaneous fistula, eating disorders, digestive disorders

SYMPTOMS 

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

Stomachaches, stomach pain, bloating, gas, gastric spasms, gastritis, skin discolorations, brittle nails, central nervous system sensitivities, anxiousness, joint pain, dark under-eye circles, fatigue, weakness, chemical sensitivities, body pain, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, frozen shoulder, tingles and numbness, Bell’s palsy, hypothyroid, burning skin sensations, muscle stiffness, hair loss, hyperthyroid, eye floaters, eye dryness, stagnant liver, blood imbalances, bladder pain, bladder spasms, weak digestion, anal itching, brain fog, memory loss, acid reflux, diarrhea, digestive discomfort, flatulence 

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT 

Papaya can quickly lift you or a loved one out of grouchiness. Keep it on hand to share when feelings of crankiness, crabbiness, or impatience creep in. Papaya breathes light into everyone who consumes it, casting out negativity and darkness, purging old judgment, resentment, and stored-up frustration. 

SPIRITUAL LESSON 

The papaya tree is often skinny and frail, yet each holds a large crop of one of the heaviest fruits there is. This will and determination to overcome physics and balance no matter what is almost supernatural. It teaches us that we can overcome our seeming weaknesses—when we are working in service to a noble cause. It’s not what we look like on the outside that counts for anything; the true self that’s inside each of us determines what we can really accomplish. 

Hidden inside each papaya are medicinal truths. When we eat them, our bodies immediately identify these elements and put them to use, redesigning us physically so that we can heal and become our strongest selves. Papaya trees and their fruit want us to understand that there are no limitations to healing, growth, and becoming. Disease and physical challenges cannot hold us back; we can transform situations that seem, at first, impossible. 

TIPS 

* For constipation relief, eat half a papaya daily. 


* Look for the Mexican and Central American papaya variety known as Maradol. These medium-to-large papayas are preferable to Hawaiian varieties, which have suffered GMO contamination. (If you’re growing papayas at home in Hawaii, that’s a different story. Just be sure to look after your trees with care to avoid GMO influence.) 


* If you like spice, eat a few papaya seeds along with the fruit. Eating a small portion of papaya seeds per week can be beneficial for eliminating parasites. For the ultimate in gut-health repair, drink a tonic of papaya blended with celery juice. 


PAPAYA SMOOTHIE BOWL

These papaya smoothie bowls are almost too pretty to eat. Don’t let that stop you, though. Papaya and raspberry were made for each other, and the addition of banana, mango, and mint takes this treat over the top. Have fun creating your own designs and customizing this recipe however you want. The options are endless. 

  • 6 cups cubed papaya 
  • 4 dates, pitted 
  • 2 cups raspberries, divided 
  • 1 cup diced mango 
  • 1 banana, sliced 
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut 
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint 
  • 1⁄2 lime 

Blend the papaya, dates, and 1 cup of the raspberries in a blender until smooth. Pour the mixture into 2 bowls. Arrange the mango, banana slices, and remaining raspberries on top. Finish with a sprinkle of shredded coconut, fresh mint, and a squeeze of lime. 

Makes 2 servings

This creamy, decadent sweet potato recipe is just as comforting as it is delicious. Baked sweet potato is blended with homemade cashew cream and raisins, topped with rosemary and pecans, and baked a few minutes more until the edges turn golden brown and piping hot! These are perfect for evenings around the table with family or friends. 

Sweet potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food that are packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C, E & D, and minerals such as manganese and iron. They are also high in potassium which helps to lower blood pressure by removing excess sodium and regulating fluid balance in the body. Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function. 

They are also one of the best anti-cancer foods and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers. Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. They contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body. 

Ingredients:

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 400°. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork. Place directly into the oven and bake until cooked through when pierced with a fork, between 30 to 50 minutes. Unwrap and cool until easily handled.

In a food processor, process 1/4C pecans, 1 tsp rosemary leaves and ½ tsp sea salt until finely combined. Set aside.

To make the cashew cream, blend cashews, garlic, date, and the juice of ½ lemon until smooth. Add water as needed to blend, approximately ½ cup.

When sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut off the top ¼ of each and gently scrape out most but not all of the flesh. This should yield 3C to 4C of sweet potato. Place this into the food processor with ½ C of the cashew cream and the juice of ½ lemon. Process until smooth. Stir in ½ C raisins and spoon into each of the sweet potato skins. Top with the rosemary pecan crumble and bake for 15 min until the pecans turn golden brown. Serve and enjoy!

Grapes should not be misunderstood as being too high in carbs, sugar, or calories to be good for us. It’s just the opposite. Like bananas, grapes are a first-rate fruit that promotes wellness of the highest level. And grapes are less sweet than we think; they are more defined by tartness, which is a key medicinal quality. That sourness indicates the presence of phytochemicals critical to kidney function. If you’ve ever heard that you have elevated creatinine levels, this means your kidneys have become compromised in their ability to remove and excrete waste products from the bloodstream. Grapes are the ultimate kidney tonic—their phytochemicals bind onto waste that the kidneys have trouble filtering.

Many people are also concerned about liver health. Like cherries, grapes are an amazing liver-cleansing food. Their phytochemicals are able to dislodge debris, processed food, and by-products that can clog up lobules in the liver. And for those looking for digestive benefits, grape skins hold powerful micronutrients that expel parasites, mold, and other unproductive fungus from the intestinal tract. Further, antioxidants such as malvidin and other anthocyanins (which explain grapes’ blue, black, dark red, and purple shades) give grapes the power to help fight and prevent most types of cancer. Grapes are an amazing food to fight the Unforgiving Four: they expel radiation from the body; their amino acids such as histidine, methionine, and cysteine work together with their anthocyanins to become a magnet that draws DDT and toxic heavy metals out of the liver, kidneys, spleen, and other organs; plus they’re a potent antiviral for autoimmune disease, which is caused by the viral explosion.

Finally, grapes are an outstanding energy food. They offer a critical boost, whether you’re an athlete, constantly on the go, or you’re a thinker—that is, engaging your brain all day with cognitive tasks (and multitasking), trying to excel at a given project, or in need of fuel to come up with your next big idea.

CONDITIONS

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

Bacterial gastroenteritis, mold exposure, macular degeneration, hypertension, hypertension-related kidney disease, creatinine issues with the kidneys, kidney stones, gallstones, hypoglycemia, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, breast cancer, diabetes, metastatic brain tumors, sepsis, pancreatic cancer, endometriosis, bronchitis, E. coli infection, mystery infertility, fatty liver, hepatitis C, nodules, depression, colon cancer, edema, anemia, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), multiple sclerosis (MS), neurological disorders, autonomic neuropathy, hemorrhoids, herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1), herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2), hepatitis C, hepatitis B, H. pylori infection, fibroids, common colds, vertigo, low reproductive system battery, all autoimmune diseases and disorders, bacterial infections

SYMPTOMS

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

Food allergies, palm sweats, emotional eating, dizziness, nausea, Bell’s palsy, shortness of breath, hearing loss, tremors, body odor, chest pain, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, confusion, brain fog, cough, backache, inflammation, myelin nerve damage, scar tissue in the liver, blood toxicity, fatigue, brain lesions, hot flashes, hair loss, congestion, brittle nails, blurry eyes, ringing or buzzing in the ears, food allergies, food sensitivities, sensations of humming or vibration in the body

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

Grapes help when you’re feeling emotionally broken, lifting your spirits and encouraging a jovial, lighthearted outlook on life. They can prevent you from becoming wounded if you’re ever falsely accused of a misdeed and promote healing when you feel excluded in social situations. If you ever feel disappointed that you weren’t chosen for a certain project or job, go out and buy some grapes—they can help you forge ahead and create new opportunities. And if you’re someone who’s reluctant about change, passing up opportunities and later regretting it, embrace grapes in your diet and feel the transformation as you’re able to be braver and take advantage of the special moments life presents. Finally, offer grapes to friends and family members who seem aloof, adrift, or complacent; over time, this fruit can help alter their direction and improve their behavior.

SPIRITUAL LESSON

When you feel isolated—living your life with little interaction or coping with shyness and yet yearning for a sense of belonging with a group that accepts you—make grapes a part of your life. Remember, grapes are bunched together. As each cluster grows on the vine, the little globes stay close to each other, connecting on both a physical and metaphysical level. Each grape adjusts to fit perfectly into place with those around it. Focus on this wonder when you select and eat grapes. It will create a sacred intention, prepare you consciously and subconsciously to find your people, and point you toward your true home.

TIPS

  • We tend to overlook raisins. Don’t let their humble status fool you. Raisins are more powerful for your health than goji berries!
  • Try this recipe for fresh grape jelly: In the food processor, combine Concord grapes, raw honey to taste, and a squeeze of lemon as preservative. The sugar from the honey extracts healing phytochemicals from the tart, medicinal skin of the grapes, making these nutrients bioavailable and delivering them deep into your vital organs.
  • When preparing organic grapes to eat, simply give them a gentle rinse. The residue on organic grapes is actually beneficial, because it’s filled with the elevated biotics we looked at in the “Adaptation” chapter.

GRAPE SLUSHY

Easy to make and incredibly delicious, this ice-cold slushy is the perfect way to make use of grapes and coconut water when you have them. You’ll want to come back to this recipe over and over again.

  • 4 cups frozen* grapes
  • 3 cups coconut water

Blend the frozen grapes and the coconut water in a blender until well combined. Serve and enjoy.

*Fresh grapes may be used in place of frozen if you don’t want an icy drink. Reduce the coconut water to 2 cups.

This smoothie is not only delicious, it's also perfectly designed to include five key ingredients that work together in synergy to pull heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminum, nickel, copper, and cadmium out of your organs where they accumulate. 

Toxic heavy metals are virtually everywhere, and are present in things we come in contact with every day, such as aluminum cans and aluminum foil, batteries, metal cookware, old paint, and even the foods we eat. For instance, pesticides and herbicides (which are hard to completely avoid even on a strict organic diet), are a common source of heavy metals. As a result, most of us are carrying around heavy metals that have been with us for almost our whole lives and which have burrowed deep inside our tissues.

Unfortunately, it is these “old” metals, the ones that have been lurking in our system for prolonged periods of time, that pose the greatest threat. For example, over time toxic heavy metals can oxidize, causing damage to surrounding tissue and promoting inflammation. They literally poison our bodies, and can inflict damage on virtually every system and organ, including our brain, liver, digestive system, and other parts of our nervous system. Toxic heavy metals put an immense burden on our immune system, leaving us vulnerable to a variety of illnesses. 

While toxins of every kind are harmful, heavy metals pose a unique threat. Not only are they damaging in their own right, they are also a form of neurotoxin (a poison that disrupts nerve function and confuses your immune system). Heavy metal neurotoxins can inflame and irritate our central nervous system (especially our brain), causing multiple symptoms such as memory loss, brain fog, fatigue, and depression. Toxic heavy metals can also promote inflammation in the digestive tract, releasing poisons into our gut as well. As if this isn’t bad enough, heavy metals also serve as a source of food for viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens in our body. 

For example, heavy metals can serve as a feeding ground for Streptococcus A or B, E. coli, C. difficile, H. pylori, and yeast cells. This can create an overgrowth of multiple bacteria in our gut, resulting in a condition known as SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), which is characterized by bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation (or both), and can lead to nutrient deficiencies. Additionally, when viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles feed off toxic heavy metals, this can produce symptoms such as tingling, numbness, fatigue, anxiety, heart palpitations, ringing in the ears, dizziness and vertigo, as well as neck pain, knee pain, foot pain, pain in the back of the head, and a variety of other aches and pains that are often attributed to other causes.

It's virtually impossible not to take in a certain amount of these toxic heavy metals in our modern era, so it's vitally important to our health that we get them out before they can wreak further havoc on our health. Thankfully, it's relatively simple to remove them from our organs if we consume the right foods to do so. Adding the following all-star team of foods to your diet and being diligent in your efforts to consume them will go a long way toward ridding your body of heavy metals: 

Spirulina: This edible blue-green algae draws out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver, and soaks up heavy metals extracted by barley grass juice extract powder. Take 2 teaspoons mixed in water, coconut water, or juice. 

Barley grass juice powder: prepares the mercury for complete absorption by the spirulina. This nutritive grass has the ability to draw heavy metals out of your spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Drink 1-2 teaspoons mixed into coconut water or juice.

Cilantro: Goes deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from yesteryear (so it’s great for that mercury inheritance you’re carrying around!). Blend one cup in a smoothie or juice, or add to salad or guacamole. 

Wild blueberries: Draw heavy metals out of your brain tissue, healing and repairing any gaps created by oxidation when the heavy metals are removed. It is important to use wild blueberries, as they possess unique phytonutrients with special detoxifying capabilities. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse any oxidative damage left behind by the heavy metal removal. This is especially important for your brain tissue—in fact, wild blueberries are the most powerful food for halting or in some cases reversing Alzheimer’s and dementia. Eat at least one cup daily. Note: while cultivated blueberries are nutritious, they lack the metal-drawing ability of the wild blueberries. Wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets.

Atlantic dulse: In addition to mercury, this edible seaweed binds to lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. Unlike other seaweeds, Atlantic dulse is a powerful force for removing mercury on its own. Atlantic dulse goes into deep, hidden places of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and never releasing it until it leaves the body. Eat two tablespoons of flakes daily, or an equal amount of strips if it’s in whole-leaf form. Note: As it comes from the ocean, if you are concerned about the dulse itself having mercury, be aware that Atlantic sea dulse will not release any mercury it might possess into the body. It holds on to the mercury as it works its way through, and even grabs onto other metals along the way and drives them out as well. Atlantic dulse is a critical part of the team because it can hang out near the finish line (i.e., our colon), waiting for the other foods that have been grabbing on to heavy metals along the way. It serves as emergency backup, helping ensure that all the heavy metals that made it as far as the colon actually leave the body.

Today's smoothie recipe gives you a simple and tasty way to get all of these five foods into your daily diet in just one go. Drink this smoothie daily for optimal benefits.

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

Ingredients: 

Directions: 

In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. If a thinner consistency is desired, add up to 1 cup of water. Enjoy

Today I have a delicious recipe to share with you for one of the most powerfully healing beverages you can drink - Chaga tea. Chaga is an incredibly powerful medicinal mushroom that is highly sought after due to its phenomenal levels of antioxidants and healing properties.

Chaga is rich in Vitamins A, C, B, D, and E and minerals such as manganese, iron, calcium, zinc, and selenium. It also contains potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-candida, and anti-parasite properties.

Chaga is one of the best sources of betulinic acid which is known to kill cancer cells on contact. Chaga is therefore often listed as one of the top anti-cancer and anti-tumor foods and is highly valued in a variety of natural cancer treatments and preventative protocols. Research has shown Chaga to be particularly beneficial for colon, stomach, endometrial, lung, breast, and prostate cancer.

Chaga is also rich in beta-glucans which can dramatically strengthen and reinforce the immune system making it an ideal choice for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowl syndrome, Chron’s disease, lymphoma, bursitis, shingles, and PCOS. It is also very beneficial for those with HIV and has been shown to reduce the various symptoms and secondary diseases caused by HIV.

Chaga contains the highest level of superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the world which is an enzyme that promotes the breakdown of free radicals and has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, gout, scleroderma, osteoarthritis, and cataracts. Its anti-inflammatory properties makes it ideal for those with IBS, arthritis, colitis, cystitis, tendonitis, edema, asthma, celiac disease, and acne.

The wide range of healing benefits found in Chaga makes its one of the most important and essential medicinal foods to be included in one’s natural health regime. Chaga mushrooms grow in harmony with birch tress and can be found in northern regions of the United States and in the forest of the Appalachian mountains. It can also be found in temperate forests of Europe, Canada, China, Russia, and Korea where it is known as a “gift of God”.

Chaga tea is an incredibly beneficial drink since the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healing compounds are easily and quickly assimilated and utilized by the body in this form. Chaga tea can be made in under a minute by simply adding 1 teaspoon of Chaga extract powder to 8oz of hot water. It has a rich, earthy coffee-like flavor that can be sweetened with honey, stevia, or coconut sugar if desired.

For something extra special, try the recipe I have included for you below.
