Medical Medium Morning Cleanse

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal I share with you seven different options for cleanses that will help you begin healing by addressing the undiscovered root causes of thousands of different health conditions and symptoms. One of these cleanses is the Medical Medium Morning Cleanse. 

"When we bombard our liver with the wrong food and liquid choices every morning, we unknowingly take away our liver’s critical morning routine of ridding toxins. We compromise the very essence of our health and well-being. The consequences are far more serious than missing morning meditation or toothbrushing or exercise or phone time—or avoidance of your phone, if that’s part of your routine. Our liver, other organs, lymphatic system, and bloodstream cannot cleanse or detox the troublemakers they’re trying to discard when we don’t let them."

It's these troublemakers (specifically pathogens and toxins) your body is trying to remove in the morning that are the cause of chronic illness, symptoms, and conditions. These pathogens and toxins are stored in your liver and elsewhere in the body too. Even if you have been given a diagnosis such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and told it's an autoimmune condition and your body is attacking itself, the truth is that it's still pathogens and toxins that are responsible for your symptoms and conditions. Your body never attacks itself. You can read about this truth in Cleanse to Heal.

As a result of radical fats in our morning food and drinks, our liver overworks itself, creating an overload of bile to break down those fats. If we ate a dinner that was high in fat the night before, our liver was already struggling to process it while we were sleeping. That’s on top of our liver working hard overnight to gather up and package poisons and toxins so they could be eliminated come morning.

Every day that we bring fats into our morning with our early meals, we prevent our body from completing its natural detox routine. On the other hand, every morning we work with our body by getting properly hydrated and keeping out radical fats, we guide ourselves toward healing. That’s the purpose of the Morning Cleanse." - Excerpt from Cleanse to Heal

In Cleanse To Heal, I give you an in-depth understanding of how the Morning Cleanse works, exactly how to do it and what not to do to ensure it's effective, and countless other critical tips and an abundance of healing wisdom for anyone wanting to heal with the Morning Cleanse or any of the other cleanses or information inside the book. Below I am giving you a quick overview into some of the key elements of the Morning Cleanse but please take note that it's essential to read at least the full chapter on the Morning Cleanse in the book so you can be sure you are doing it correctly and getting the benefit from the time and effort you put into it. 

Medical Medium Morning Cleanse

In the Morning:

What to consume:

  1. Drink 16 to 32 ounces of lemon or lime water upon waking.
  2. Wait 15 to 30 minutes
  3. Drink 16 to 32oz fresh celery juice on empty stomach
  4. Wait 15 to 30 minutes
  5. Fresh fruit breakfast (best choice) OR steamed potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, winter squash, millet, or oatmeal
  6. Drink at least 16oz of water or coconut water

Don't consume:

  • Radical fats (oils, chicken, eggs, bacon, milk, yogurt, nut butter, oil, avocado, etc)
  • Dried fruits
  • Salt
  • Try to skip troublemaker foods all morning or day (refer to Cleanse to Heal for the list of troublemaker foods to avoid for best results). 

In Cleanse To Heal you'll also find detailed guidance on how to pick the right cleanse option for you from the different cleanses, when to user the Morning Cleanse versus another cleanse, for how long, and much more information about how to make the Morning Cleanse work for you. Cleanse To Heal holds healing information and wisdom for anyone who is living with a chronic symptom or condition of any kind, or anyone who wishes to safeguard and protect their health for the future. The truth is that we are all exposed to the troublemakers that cause sickness in one way or another today, so knowing how to protect and take care of our bodies has never been more important. I wrote Cleanse to Heal so you would have the answers you need by your side.

Mango Smoothie Berry Parfait

This gorgeous parfait is a feast for the eyes and the body. With its layers of bright yellow-orange smoothie topped with beautiful deep red and blue berries, you may find yourself serving this to family and friends long after the cleanse has finished.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune

Mangoes: Cool a toxic, overheated liver, soothing and calming it to prevent the organ from going into spasm. The yellow-to-orange pigment in mangoes feeds liver lobules and strengthens hepatocytes and Kupffer cells, allowing them to do the jobs they need to do. Mangoes also have a unique phytochemical compound that helps the liver’s immune system destroy the pockets of bacteria that create liver abscesses. Help prevent your liver from aging and cells from dying while improving bile production.

Berries: A medicine chest for the liver. Loaded with antioxidants to keep a variety of liver cells, including hepatocytes and Kupffer cells, as well as liver lobules and capillaries, from becoming infected and affected by toxins and pathogens. Berries protect the liver from troublemakers causing damage; the many undiscovered antioxidants they contain help shield liver cells from harm. All berries, including raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries, stop the liver from oxidizing too easily when saturated with toxic heavy metals and poisons.

Mango Smoothie Berry Parfait

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen diced mango
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice or water, to blend
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries
  • Fresh mint, for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Place the mango and orange juice (or water) in a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour a layer of mango-orange smoothie in a jar or bowl, scraping from the sides of the blender as needed.

Top with half the berries.

Repeat with another layer of the smoothie and berries.

Garnish with a few leaves of fresh mint, if desired, and serve.

Makes 1 serving

Curried Cauliflower & Peas

The vibrant color, flavor, and fragrance of curry make this dish a standout. As a bonus, it comes together quickly and easily; you’ll be sitting down to enjoy a beautiful meal in no time! Enjoy this wonderful Curried Cauliflower and Peas alone or with a salad such as the Leafy Green Salad in Cleanse To Heal.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal

Cauliflower: This crucifer contains the trace mineral boron, which is also known to help the endocrine system—and yet cauliflower gets more attention for the so-called goitrogens it contains. Cauliflower does the very opposite of what the hype says—it helps the thyroid and the rest of the endocrine system (including the hypothalamus and adrenal glands) to stave off the viruses that are truly behind issues such as thyroiditis. 

Peas: Contain easily assimilable healing phytochemical compounds and carbohydrates plus an abundance of chlorophyll that absorbs easily into the intestinal linings, where these components feed healthy cell growth and help restore mucus membranes when the intestinal tract linings have become scorched, scarred, injured, or damaged by excess adrenaline, toxic troublemakers, troublemaker foods, and pathogens.

Curried Cauliflower & Peas

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium-sized head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3/4 cup green peas, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • 1/4 cup tightly packed fresh cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish

Directions:

Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the cauliflower and peas in the basket, cover, and steam for 3 to 4 minutes, until just tender. Remove from heat.

Place a large ceramic nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and add the green onions, garlic, and ginger. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, adding a spoonful of water if needed, until the green onion begins to soften.

Lower the heat and add the curry powder, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, and chili powder (if using). Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. If the mixture starts sticking to the pan or burning, add a bit of water.

Add the steamed cauliflower, peas, and 1/2 cup water. Stir until well mixed and coated. When all the water has evaporated and the peas are soft, remove from heat. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro.

Sweet Potato Tots

Enjoy this unique, healing spin on a childhood favorite. They’re delicious served with the ketchup recipe below or the Spinach Pesto recipe in Cleanse To Heal and served on their own or with salad.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal

Sweet potatoes are an important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.

Sweet Potato Tots

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs such as oregano, thyme, or rosemary

OPTIONAL KETCHUP

  • 6 ounces pure tomato paste (find one without additives or salt)
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender on the outside yet firm in the middle. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes and grate them using the large side of a box grater. Place the grated sweet potato into a bowl and add the herbs. Mix until combined.

Use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture, and then use your hands to form the tots into small cylinders.

Place the tots on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until browned. For a crispier tot, turn the heat up to 400°F for the last 10 minutes of baking. Let the tots cool for 5 to 10 minutes before eating.

To make the ketchup, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Serve with tots.

"Cheddar" Broccoli Soup

This soup is oh so creamy and dreamy. The potatoes add a natural creaminess to the soup without the use of cream, butter, or milk, and the broccoli adds some texture. Serve yourself up a big bowl of this soup when you’re looking for a comforting, grounding meal. Pair it with Leafy Green Salad or Liver Rescue Salad (recipes in Cleanse To Heal) if you wish.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal

Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. They’re also shunned for being a nightshade, when in truth they have the ability to reverse many varieties of chronic illness.

Broccoli: The “trunks” of broccoli are rich in sulfur compounds, which are not researched to the extent needed—they’re more important than we realize. These phytochemical sulfur compounds act as harmful gas to unfriendly bacteria and other microorganisms inside the intestinal tract and also travel straight to the liver, where they saturate liver tissue, allowing the liver’s immune system to have a fighting chance at controlling pathogens.

"Cheddar" Broccoli Soup 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 cup diced carrot
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup water or Liver Rescue Broth (recipe on page 394 of Cleanse To Heal)
  • 1 medium-sized head broccoli, chopped into bite-sized pieces (yields about 4 cups)

Directions:

Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the potatoes and carrots in the basket, cover, and steam for 8 to 12 minutes, until soft.

When they’re ready, remove the potatoes and carrots and place them in a blender together with the turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, lemon juice, and water or Liver Rescue Broth. Blend until very smooth. Pour into a pot and bring to a simmer.

To make the broccoli, steam it for 5 to 10 minutes, until tender yet not mushy; you want the broccoli to hold up well in the soup. Stir it into the soup. Divide the soup between bowls and serve.

Tips:

  • If you don’t like broccoli, you can use cauliflower or asparagus.
  • When choosing between water and Liver Rescue Broth for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free from oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Liver Rescue Broth in advance and freeze it (consider ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like these.

Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

With just a few key ingredients, these Breakfast Cookies couldn’t be simpler, with no flavor sacrificed. You can make them in advance for busy mornings or pack in lunch boxes for the whole family.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal

Let's take a look at how some of the key ingredients in these Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies can offer healing support: 

Bananas: The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Raisins: Raisins can easily be ignored or forgotten, but they actually offer wonderful health benefits and in fact offer greater nutritional might than the goji berry, which is touted as a superfood. Raisins can vary in size and color depending on which type of grape is used. Grapes have a lengthy list of health benefits and can be particularly beneficial when it comes to battling The Unforgiving Four. They possess strong antiviral properties and can help in the removal of radiation from the body. They also work to remove DDT and toxic heavy metals from the liver thanks to the collaborative efforts of their amino acids and anthocyanins.

Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies 

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the banana in a medium-sized mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add the oats, cinnamon, and cranberries or raisins, if desired. Mix until uniform.

Scoop out the mixture using a heaping tablespoon measure—you should get about 8 cookies. Place them on the baking sheet and flatten them slightly to make discs.

Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until browned on the sides. Cool completely before eating.

Intermittent Fasting - What You Don't Know

Intermittent fasting has become a popular practice in recent years, but you might be surprised to learn that there are downsides that can have a big impact on your health in the future. In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share with you the truth about intermittent fasting, including the good, the bad, and the unexpected. Below I am sharing with you a small excerpt from my chapter in intermittent Fasting in Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal to give you a window into why it is problematic and what you can expect to discover in Cleanse To Heal.

"Intermittent fasting is a temporary BandAid that can support someone short term if they’re not sick. We shouldn’t see it as anything beyond short-term support for not-so-sick people, though—and even for those people, to get any of the positives, it needs to be done correctly. If you’re an intermittent faster and you’ve come across this chapter, I’m going to offer you tips so that you can still do your intermittent fasting with the least consequences down the road for your body. It’s best to eventually graduate out of intermittent fasting into one of the cleanses inside this book.

When you’re sick and trying to recover from a chronic illness or symptom that’s impeding your life, intermittent fasting will not give you the long-term relief you need; it can only hinder you, possibly even worsening your illness or condition. While I know so many people are into intermittent fasting, you shouldn’t incorporate it into the 3:6:9 Cleanse, which is specifically geared to cleanse the body. Intermittent fasting does not translate to cleansing. What is someone eating on the other side of an intermittent fast? What’s going on with their health? There are complexities here that make it unwise to combine intermittent fasting with the 3:6:9 Cleanse or any other cleanse in this book.

If you’re still looking for an intermittent fasting option, you’ll find a technique at the end of Chapter 16, “Morning Cleanse,” that you can try separately from the 3:6:9 Cleanse. Keep in mind that when you’re intermittent “fasting,” you’re never truly fasting. Not until you go 24 hours without food or beverages other than water can you call anything a fast. The body doesn’t start its fasting process until the sun has risen twice. So if you’re withholding foods in the morning or for most of the day and you eat a meal before 24 hours have passed, or you drink black coffee or even squeeze lemon into your water within those 24 hours, you stop the process of fasting from beginning. (That’s not to say you should be fasting instead. While water fasting has its time and place, it should be done only with great care and in special circumstances.) Point is, the name of this technique is flawed to begin with, which showcases that the “experts” in intermittent fasting are unaware of how the body’s processes really work."

This is just a small excerpt about intermittent fasting from Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal. There is so much more to learn about it so that you have every opportunity to heal. With the truth about intermittent fasting in your hands, you can make your own choices from a place of empowerment, awareness, and knowledge because you now have answers to why you are sick in the first place or have unwanted weight gain and digestive issues, which is most likely why you started your intermittent fasting journey to begin with. The goal is to not suffer later on down the road because you fell into a guessing game with your health. Cleanse To Heal is about offering you a choice by empowering you with answers. 

Some more topics I cover in the Intermittent Fasting chapter in Cleanse to Heal include:

  • Why some people like intermittent fasting and why they might see some results.
  • The caffeine mistake people make while intermittent fasting that affects their health in multiple ways, including later in life.
  • Why prolonged intermittent fasting can be a recipe for burnout, hair loss, aging skin, sluggish liver, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms and conditions later in life.
  • And more. 

I also provide intermittent fasting enthusiasts who wish to continue this practice a way to safeguard their health against the negative impacts of intermittent fasting done in the way that has been popularized in our culture today. The option I offer for intermittent fasting enthusiasts will offer you freedom that can lead to lasting health benefits that are not temporary, short-sighted, or will come back to bite you later with symptoms and conditions. 

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share much more healing information beyond intermittent fasting, including the truth about the pathogens and toxins that are responsible for chronic illnesses and symptoms, what’s going on inside the body that causes symptoms and conditions to develop, as well as giving you a blueprint for cleansing and healing. You will discover how to cleanse your body of pathogens and toxins, strengthen your immune system and other body systems, provide your body with the hydration and nutrients it needs, heal emotionally and spiritually, and much more so you can experience all the benefits proper cleansing has to offer. You'll also get over 70 healing recipes to help you heal while enjoying delicious foods. Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal is a companion book for you and your family that you can come back to over and over. My prayer is that it will be a loving friend by your side for all the years ahead.

Portobello Stew

This hearty stew is so satisfying and mouth-watering. Portobello mushrooms, carrots, potatoes, onions, and fresh herbs come together in a delicious gravy-style sauce. This is a great meal to serve to hungry friends and family or to keep in the fridge or freezer for leftovers. Enjoy with a fresh salad for a truly soul-comforting meal.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal

Let's take a look at how some of the key ingredients in this Portobello Stew can offer healing support: 

Mushrooms: Contain hundreds of undiscovered phytochemical compounds, many of which are detoxifying for the liver without hurting it. Mushrooms are medicine for the liver. Many people fear mushrooms because they believe that their status as a type of fungus means they feed fungus within the body. It’s just the opposite. A mushroom is a fungus that destroys fungus, and the liver accepts mushrooms as allies—if the liver is dealing with unwanted microorganisms such as fungus, mushrooms are very helpful in pushing them out of the liver. Mushrooms also reduce fungus, bacteria, and viruses in the intestinal tract, allowing for cleaner nutrients and cleaner blood to arrive in the liver.

Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. They’re also shunned for being a nightshade, when in truth they have the ability to reverse many varieties of chronic illness.

Onions: Very similar to garlic, onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver. Onions have a disinfecting quality for the liver, keeping it from becoming inflamed. They also improve the temperature control or “thermostat” of the liver so it can heat and cool itself properly.

Portobello Stew 

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 pound portobello or portobellini mushrooms, stems removed and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped
  • 11/2 pounds potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 cups water or Liver Rescue Broth (recipe on page 394)
  • 1 tablespoon pure tomato paste (find one without additives)
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot plus 3 tablespoons cold water, to thicken (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Directions:

Place a large ceramic nonstick pot on medium-high heat and add the onion. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until it starts to soften, adding a spoonful of water if needed. Add the celery and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until softened and browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Then add the garlic, carrots, potatoes, thyme, and rosemary. Stir well. Pour in the water and tomato paste and bring it to a boil. Cook uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes and carrots are soft.

If desired, mix together the arrowroot and cold water in a small bowl to make a slurry. Pour the slurry into the stew and stir well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the stew has thickened. Remove from heat and serve, topped with fresh parsley. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Troublemakers That Make Us Sick - Radiation

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share with you the troublemakers–pathogens and toxins–that are behind the epidemic of chronic illness and symptoms we are experiencing on this planet today. Today I am sharing with you some insights into one of these sneaky troublemakers that can make us sick: radiation. Below you will read some excerpts from Cleanse to Heal on radiation, which is one troublemaker that is often ignored or denied because it can't be seen. It's vital to know what we are up against on this planet and what the true causes of symptoms and conditions are and how to address them so you can heal. This all comes down to first having the truth in your hands, which is what Cleanse To Heal offers you. 

Radiation

"No one wants to age quickly—to get gray hair faster or wrinkled skin or degenerative bone diseases. No one wants to shrink and lose their height. No one wants their fingernails and toenails to lose their vitality and color. No one wants their teeth to discolor and decay or their eyes to glaze over with cataracts or degenerative retina disease to develop. We simply don’t want to age; we’re always talking about anti-aging and never talking about the radiation exposure that contributes to it. Radiation speeds up the aging process rapidly. It causes much faster deterioration of cell tissue; vitality gets sucked out of every cell exposed to radiation. While the body’s cells are always renewing, radiation doesn’t just disappear. We need to work on actively ridding it with the 3:6:9 Cleanse and the Heavy Metal Detox. (The Heavy Metal Detox addresses radiation at the same time as toxic heavy metals.) Otherwise, radiation within us has a shelf life that outlasts our body. When we’re in our grave, hundreds and hundreds of years after we’ve died, we’re still radiating.

Radiation also lowers the immune system. It’s critical to keep our immune system strong so we can fight the pathogens and battle the toxins that we come up against every day. When we fly, we already get a tremendous amount of radiation exposure. There’s still nuclear fallout floating in the sky, for one, from tragedies such as Fukushima, Hiroshima, and Chernobyl, and there’s more of it up high. For another, everybody on the plane has just been through scanners and placed their scanned luggage in the overhead bins, concentrating all that radiation directly over our heads, which gives us extra radiation exposure. With all of this—on top of the radiation exposure we get from sources other than flying, such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, devices such as cell phones, and even food and water—if we can take a step to protect our health, well-being, and vitality, it’s worth taking."

You might be surprised to hear that MRIs are a source of radiation exposure. The industry doesn’t tell us that there is a specific form of radiation that comes from MRI’s that’s different from the radiation emitted by X-rays and CT scans. Also, MRIs are often performed in the same medical center or area of a medical establishment where X-rays and CT scans are performed. This means you can inadvertently get some additional radiation exposure when you go for your MRI just by being in the same area where these services are offered. You can be sitting in the waiting room or lounge at your medical center and be exposed to dozens of people who are carrying radiation from having X-rays or CT scans in that same center. In addition, many people who get MRIs have already received X-rays or CT scans very recently, which means you can be exposed to the radiation they are carrying in them into the medical center. Again, we can’t avoid all exposure to radiation, which is why knowing how to remove it from your body with the information in Cleanse To Heal is so empowering. 

"Here’s an unknown source of radiation: luggage that’s been through airport security. When your bags go through the scanners that allow agents to analyze their contents, the bags collect radiation that stays on them for years—centuries, even. The next time your knapsack or tote or briefcase goes through the scanner, it collects more radiation, and that accrues and accrues and accrues with every trip. Airport security is using more radiation than ever before right now. Every year, it increases. As a result, we should be discarding our carry-on bags every three trips. The checked bag scanning process tends to emit less radiation, so you can discard checked bags less often, more like every six trips. (And those are one-way trips, by the way. Round trips count as two trips.)

Now, I know this isn’t welcome information. I know it sounds drastic and jarring, especially with the popularity of expensive luggage and in this age of reuse. Can I afford to buy a new bag every few trips? Isn’t it wasteful? you may be asking yourself, and rightfully so. The bigger question is, can you afford not to? Especially if you have babies or children who spend any time near your luggage that’s been on multiple flights, can you afford to expose them? (More on protecting little ones in a moment.)

We also need to think about where we’re storing our luggage between trips, especially if we have little ones. When there are children in the house or we’re chronically ill, we need to be most mindful about not keeping well-traveled bags nearby. What if you’re using your child’s bedroom closet to store the family carry-ons that have been on five, six, or seven trips? What if you sleep four feet away from the backpack you’ve taken on 10 flights and it’s radiating there, right next to you, every night? These are questions to consider. If you have kids, do whatever you can to change luggage regularly. Be particularly careful about letting babies near bags that have been on a flight with you. If you don’t have children in the home and you can’t afford new bags, stow them as far from where you spend time in the home as possible.

What about the items that were in the luggage when it went through airport security? It’s really the largest item that collects the most radiation, and that item is the piece of baggage itself. Computers, phones, and clothing are smaller, and we store them separately and spread out when we’re not flying. That is, we don’t usually keep an exact set of shirts, pants, and sweaters from a trip shut together in one drawer, where all the radiation it picked up will be concentrated. These smaller items tend to be replaced more often than luggage too; we cycle through them, so this doesn’t need to be a big source of worry. Same with snacks you might have packed in your carry-on to eat while traveling. When we eat food that’s been through the scanner, yes, we’ll get a small dose of radiation. Food sold at the airport has been scanned too, though. You may need to eat while traveling, and you especially need to drink liquids, so go ahead and pack your snacks, drink your water, and plan to take care of yourself with cleansing steps such as the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie afterward.

This is what I mean about living our lives. Some exposures we can’t avoid. Some, like luggage, we can limit. Either way, it helps to be aware. Then we can make smart choices, such as choosing a more economical bag next time you purchase luggage so you won’t mind letting it go before long, and sparing your kids from sleeping next to radiating carry-ons. If you’re concerned about the waste aspect of discarding your travel bags over time, think about the waste aspect of becoming ill and hospitalized—and the costs that occur on all levels of life when that happens.

Now, it’s possible that someday, radiation at airport security will get more attention. If it does, be prepared to hear experts say that the radiation levels that luggage picks up, if detectable, are safe for the body. That won’t mean the radiation really is safe—it’s like telling us mercury fillings are safe. Sometimes tools and knowledge are behind the times. Hold on to what you’ve discovered about the truth here."

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I give you advanced information about what’s going on inside the body that causes symptoms and conditions to develop, as well as giving you a blueprint for cleansing and healing. You will discover how to cleanse your body of the pathogens and toxins responsible for illness (including radiation), strengthen your immune system and other body systems, provide your body with the hydration and nutrients it needs, heal emotionally and spiritually, and much more so you can experience all the benefits proper cleansing has to offer. Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal was written to stand alongside you as a compassionate friend and guide as you make the choices that are best for you and your family's health.

The versatility of the humble potato is impressive. From steamed to baked to salads to pizzas to stuffed to mashed and more, there are endless ways to draw on its flexibility. Potatoes often get a bad rap because of the other ingredients that accompany them. When prepared without butter, cream, cheese, or bacon bits, the potato is an incredibly healing vegetable that can help knock down your viral load. These Pizza Boats show one more delicious way you can enjoy the potato.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal

Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. 

Tomatoes: Harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver admires: the liver uses it to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely, smoothly, and efficiently. 

Zucchini: Zucchini have a mild liver-purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. 

Potato Pizza Boats

Ingredients:

  • 4 large russet potatoes

SAUCE

  • 1/2 cup pure tomato paste (find one without additives)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 1/4 cup water

TOPPING OPTIONS

  • 1/4 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1/4 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • Fresh basil, to serve

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pierce the potatoes with a fork and place them on the baking sheet. Bake them in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until tender. Remove and cool.

While the potatoes are roasting, make the tomato sauce by whisking together the tomato paste, dried oregano, dried thyme, raw honey, and 1/4 cup water. Set aside.

When they are cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the top of each potato half, creating a boat. Place a couple of tablespoons of tomato sauce in each and add toppings of your choice.

Place them back in the oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until the toppings are cooked through. Serve immediately. Makes 2 to 3 servings.
