For the Underdogs and Critics

Below I am sharing an important message for anyone who is wanting to heal or trying to heal. This message is an excerpt from Part V of 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

"Bullying: you don’t deserve it. Whatever you’ve been through, whatever haters you’ve faced in life, whoever tried to hold you back from doing good: you did not deserve it. Maybe you had to suffer through it because it wasn’t safe to speak up. Maybe you never got to say or do what you wished you could have. Maybe it was only years later that you got validation for calling out a situation that was not okay. Maybe you saved someone with your voice. Maybe you saved yourself. Somehow, you lived through it. You’re still here. And with the life ahead of you, you can choose to be part of a powerful healing movement.

We all know that bullying doesn’t stop when we grow up. The health realm is one area where that’s abundantly clear. It can happen when someone spreads advanced information about healing, it can happen when someone sets out to heal using that information, and it can even happen when someone actually heals. Who would bully a person who has been through debilitating exhaustion and maddening pain, and has finally found a way to feel alive again? Plenty of people, I’m sorry to say. A long history of doubt and shame stretches behind us when it comes to suffering and well-being—especially when it comes to women’s suffering and well-being. With the rise of social media, it has become easier to target those brave enough to share their stories. At the exact same time, mercifully, it’s become easier for people who are struggling with chronic health issues to find resources and find each other.

Critical thinking: we need this in our confused world. Haters: we don’t. Critics want to learn. They educate themselves on what they’re critiquing and aim to leave personal opinion out of it, which creates room for them to change their minds. Haters cast their votes with no intention to change. The bullying this leads to is not the way it’s supposed to be. Still, we must find a way to cope and stay grounded in its presence, to offer information in the face of hate and also offer compassion in the face of ill will. Above all, we must save ourselves. 

Life can be so hard. When people are in pain emotionally, and sometimes even physically, because of the injuries they’ve experienced in life, a portion of them become haters. Out of their suffering, they adopt hatred. Yes, we have to have some compassion for these people. At the same time, we need to realize that there are a lot of other people out there in the world who have been injured by emotional or physical suffering, and they would never become hateful against others. They would never bully anyone or try to tear them down. We can’t give forgiveness and allowance to every hater to the point of disrespecting the ones who would never be harmful or hurtful to others, even in the midst of their worst suffering. If we don’t understand the distinction here between haters trapped in darkness and pain who want to pull others into their nightmare and people who are suffering who only wish for the alleviation of others’ suffering, we’re letting the haters off the hook. Yes, we have to have compassion. We can’t go so far with it that we injure ourselves. If we believe everybody is good, we’re going to believe we’re doing something wrong in the end. If we don’t realize that there are haters who could hurt us in our healing process, then it will hit us in our core of self-worth and self-doubt when we’re struggling and trying to heal. Darkness works in this way. Good people tend to give themselves their own lashings and punish themselves when they didn’t even do anything wrong. If we don’t come to the realization that there are certain people who dwell in hatred and keep light from entering their heart and soul, we could get hurt even more along the way, and that could be detrimental to the healing process. You can protect yourself, knowing that you are a good person and it’s not your fault and you didn’t do anything wrong to deserve your pain.

We’re taught that everyone is inherently good in this world. My job is to tell you the truth so you can protect yourself. If we believe naïvely that everyone is looking out for our best interest, then the haters can cause harm to our soul and physical body in many ways. That doesn’t mean that all haters are hopeless. A miraculous event can change a person. There is always hope that a reversal can occur, where light and goodness can enter a person’s heart and awaken them. Still, how much damage was caused along the way? How many people were emotionally harmed to get them to this awakening, and for how many years to come will those selfless individuals suffer for sacrificing their own well-being?

This is a message for the people who are struggling and trying to heal. This is not a message for the hater who doesn’t like or believe in the information in this book or that it has helped so many. Critics are welcome here. If you’re one of them, I know you’re a good person. This is about taking the conversation to another level, opening your eyes so that you can see past your surroundings. My job is to look out for the underdogs who have been through hell and back. There are people who have been bullied and hurt very badly, and it has scarred them. If that’s you, let these living words serve as a little lesson on haters so that you don’t get hurt by the people trying to drag you into their own pain. Think of the living words here as your anti-bullying tool kit, your refuge when that old schoolyard feeling starts to surface."

Carrot, Zucchini, & Potato Patties

These veggie patties are so incredibly versatile that you can make them a regular lunch or dinner choice without getting bored. Try them over a salad, with steamed vegetables, topped with salsa, in a lettuce or cabbage leaf, dipped into the natural ketchup recipe in Cleanse to Heal, or any other way you can dream up.

Carrots: A quick liver refueling source of glucose that’s attached to minerals and vitamins. When carrots are eaten raw, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms.

Zucchini: 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. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

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. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. 

Carrot, Zucchini and Potato Patties

Ingredients:

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 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat and cool completely.

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

Grate the zucchini and place it in a muslin cloth or nut milk bag to squeeze out all the water. Make sure that the zucchini is very dry; otherwise it will take the patties longer to crisp up in the oven. Add it to a mixing bowl. Grate the potatoes and carrots and place them in the bowl with the grated zucchini. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and paprika and mix until combined.

Form the mixture into about 8 patties and place them on the baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook for 45 to 60 minutes, until browned and crispy, flipping them halfway through. Allow the patties to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before eating so they firm up.

Makes 8 patties.

Warm Spiced Roasted Vegetable Salad

Fresh arugula and spinach tossed with warm roasted vegetables makes for a heavenly pairing. This Warm Spiced Roasted Vegetable Salad is a great way to get all-important leafy greens in while also enjoying the comfort and satiation of roasted vegetables.

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 recipe can offer healing support: 

Winter squash (including kabocha, acorn, delicata, and butternut): Loaded with nutrients that our livers can easily store. High in carotenoids that protect liver cells from damage. The glucose in winter squash can stabilize the liver, allowing blood sugar to stabilize overall in the body.

Zucchini: Very similar to cucumber in certain ways, as it is also a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration, which allows the liver to store micro pockets of water that it can later release back into the bloodstream during moments of chronic dehydration in your life. 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. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

Arugula: Causes a gentle purging effect inside the liver, with undiscovered phytochemical compounds that allow the liver to decide the severity of the cleanse and what toxins it safely wants to release (versus a purge that would harm the liver).

Warm Spiced Roasted Vegetable Salad 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup diced carrot
  • 2 cups chopped butternut squash
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 cups roughly chopped zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 2 cups spinach, loosely packed
  • 2 cups arugula, loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup tightly packed fresh cilantro, chopped

FOR THE DRESSING

  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/2 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the diced carrot, butternut squash, red onion, and zucchini on the baking sheet. Add the ground coriander, ground cumin, paprika, and raw honey. Mix until evenly coated. Place in the oven and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender and browned. While the vegetables are roasting, make the dressing by whisking together the orange juice and zest, garlic, raw honey, and lemon juice. Place the spinach, arugula, and cilantro in a serving bowl or divide between two. Top with roasted vegetables and drizzle the dressing on top. Serve immediately Makes 1 to 2 servings.

Troublemakers That Makes Us Sick - Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders

There are many common chemicals that we use or are exposed to in everyday life that wreak havoc on our health over time. Many of them are so deeply entrenched in our culture and way of life that you may have never questioned their safety or long-term health consequences. One of the most sneaky and damaging groups is what I call "Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders". This collection of toxic chemicals affects every single one of us. While we can't always avoid exposure to these chemicals outside of the home and around other people, the good news is that there's a lot we can do within the home to reduce or prevent these chemicals from surrounding us in our domestic life.

The heinous nature of these toxic chemicals we have all had exposure to in our lifetimes and usually still are exposed to regularly in one way or another–such as in offices, restaurants, doctor's offices and public spaces or when we are around other people–means that every one of us has these toxins to cleanse out of the body. These insidious toxins don't just leave the body on their own, not with the high-fat diets almost everyone has eaten for much of their life, and the pathogens and other toxins most of us have inside us. You have to know exactly how to support your body and liver in the right way so it can do the hard work of cleansing you of toxins that are deep inside your liver and cells. This is the life-saving information you will find inside the pages of 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

Even if you don't think you have been exposed to toxins, chemicals or pathogens, or you aren't struggling with a symptom or condition right now, later in life your health will be affected one way or another. It's now become almost impossible to avoid developing a symptom or condition at some point in your life with all that we face on this planet. The way to avoid or minimize this, or the way to recover from symptoms or conditions you might already be living with, is to know how to properly cleanse and heal the body.

Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders are just one group of troublemakers that can make us sick. Let's take a look at the troublemakers in this group: 

  • Aerosol can air fresheners
  • Cologne and aftershave
  • Conventional cleaning products
  • Conventional hair dye
  • Conventional laundry detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets
  • Conventional makeup
  • Conventionally scented body lotions, creams, sprays, washes, and deodorants
  • Conventionally scented shampoos, conditioners, gels, and other hair products
  • Dry cleaning chemicals
  • Hairspray
  • Nail chemicals (such as polish, remover, adhesive)
  • Perfume
  • Plug-in air fresheners
  • Scented candles
  • Spray tan
  • Spray-bottle air fresheners and mists
  • Talcum powder

Below you will find an excerpt from Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal on some of these Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders.

Air Fresheners, Scented Candles, Conventional Laundry Detergent, Fabric Softener, Perfume, Cologne, and Aftershave

"We all walk around as if it’s normal and actually good to be surrounded by synthetic chemical products meant to create pleasing smells. Who are they actually pleasing? If no one really likes the smell of cologne, neither the people who wear it nor those who interact with them, why are so many people using it? All it takes is five people wearing cologne in a room of a hundred to overpower the air.

Don’t underestimate the toxic levels of this category. Just because these products have fragrances we’ve been taught to identify as pleasing, whether inside our home or on our body, it doesn’t mean they’re safe. These are some of the most hazardous chemicals to be concerned about, creating a future of health deprivation.

We think, for example, that by using an air freshener, we’re creating a more pleasing environment. Once we unleash that plug-in air freshener, though, our sense of smell instantly becomes disabled. When you’re living in a home or working in an office or other environment with a plug-in air freshener spewing chemical-laden oil into the air, you may not smell it anymore. After plugging them into the wall, many people forget air fresheners are there and don’t notice when they’ve run out because the walls, bedding, pillows, furniture, air vents, and window shades have become so saturated. And while we become desensitized to that scent, it’s nearly impossible to smell anything else.

These chemically scented, vaporized poisons hurt the lungs—their waxy, oily residue builds up in the lung sacs. If you’re someone who doesn’t smoke and yet you love plug-in air fresheners, you’re better off removing your plug-in air freshener and starting to smoke. That’s right; you actually have a better chance of longer-lasting health and vitality without complicated diseases if you smoke cigarettes than if you breathe plug-in air fresheners day in and day out. Does that put it in perspective?

The oily film from air freshener doesn’t only affect the lungs. It also ends up in the liver when it enters the bloodstream from the lungs. Plus we swallow air freshener when we breathe it in through our mouth, and that brings it to the intestinal tract, from which it enters the bloodstream and heads to the liver as well. Air freshener residue in that organ can reduce liver function. If a really inquisitive surgeon opened up the body of a patient who had lived for years in a space highly saturated with air freshener, that surgeon would smell the air freshener scent seeping out of the patient’s blood and cells.

The chemicals in synthetic scents can lower the immune system rapidly. What does that mean? It means that when the chemicals enter our bloodstream, our natural killer cells, lymphocytes, and other white blood cells absorb them, and that instantly weakens our immune cells and even kills some off. Our white blood cells need clean, fresh, oxygenated blood; with chemical scents, our white count becomes hindered. Exposure to a heavy dosage of air freshener, scented candle, cologne, perfume, or similar scent could mean three to four days of a weakened and lowered immune system. Pathogens can take advantage with an uprising—especially because the synthetic scent chemicals can, at the same time, feed viruses and bacteria, allowing them to prosper and reproduce, leading to further illness. Someone who’s prone to urinary tract infections (UTIs), sinus infections, or flare-ups of fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, lupus, MS, eczema, psoriasis, or Hashimoto’s may experience a new flare-up following exposure.

It seems like a really neat idea to plug in a device that releases a scent that makes you think of wildflowers. In the end, they’re not real fragrances. They’re synthetic and man-made in a factory, formulated by a group of people testing scents around a laboratory table and picking the one they like best. Air fresheners sprayed from a bottle or can and scented candles are just as bad. Even if they’re called “natural fragrances,” don’t be fooled. This is the same tactic as listing “natural flavors” in a food’s ingredient list as a secret label for MSG. It’s difficult to find an enclosed space these days that’s free of chemical scent. When we move to a different home, it’s tough to find an apartment or house that doesn’t have a lingering scent in the walls. Out in the world, we’re exposed in stores, malls, hotels, restaurants, offices, friends’ and families’ homes, and public restrooms more than ever before in history. Hop in a taxi or ride service car, and you’re likely to find air freshener coming through the vents. We inhale it just from being near people who have the scent on their clothes from air fresheners at home—on top of whatever scented laundry detergent, dryer sheets, deodorant, shampoo, hair product, lotion, aftershave, cologne, or perfume they use.

We live in a world where chemical sensitivities are becoming much more prevalent. That means that these chemical exposures are not only a nightmare for the individuals already suffering with sensitivities; they’re creating new cases of chemical sensitivities for people who didn’t previously have them. Years ago, it was older people who would complain about smells, saying, “I need fresh air,” “Can you put out that fire?”, “Please shut the window,” “Close the front door; you’re letting dust in,” or “I don’t like the smell of that cologne.” They were the ones who had lived long enough to become sensitive. Now it’s not like that anymore. Younger people are developing actual chemical sensitivities at rapid rates due to all they’re exposed to, and the complaints of older generations are nothing in comparison to what the younger generations are up against.

Now, don’t let this all put you into fear and chaos. While out and about, we can do our best to take measures to avoid these scents. For example, we can choose not to walk by the perfume counter at the department store; to purchase bath, body, and laundry products that are unscented or only scented with pure essential oils; and to find an alternative to the café around the corner that burns scented candles. Because we can’t always avoid them, though— we can’t ask the person standing next to us on the train to go home, shower, and wash their clothes in unscented detergent—we at least need to make our own homes, cars, and wherever else we spend extended periods of time into oases from these scents. If we have any say at our workplaces, it’s ideal to establish scent-free policies. And of course, because we can’t dodge every exposure, cleansing is critical so that we can continually release and rebuild."

Proper cleansing is the critical for anyone living on this planet at this time. Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal is your companion guide for effective cleansing. It gives you the knowledge and tools to help your body heal. Your body loves you and wants to keep you alive and healthy–it just needs the right support. Cleanse To Heal at its core is not only a book about healing, but also empowerment. To be truly empowered, you have to know the truth about what you're up against and how to overcome it. I believe you will find that in these pages.

Sweet Potato Noodles with Garlic, Red Pepper & Asparagus

While you might have heard about or tried zucchini noodles, or even butternut squash noodles . . . have you tried sweet potato noodles? They’re delicious and fun! In this recipe, they are combined with asparagus, garlic, and red pepper to make a beautiful meal that will delight your eyes and your body.

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

Sweet potatoes: An important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes 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.

Asparagus: Provide a wealth of flavonoids that act as natural aspirin and soothe a hot, overburdened, struggling liver. The liver’s ability to cleanse increases greatly from this calming effect. Asparagus helps dislodge fat cells, expelling them from the liver. 

Sweet Potato Noodles with Garlic, Red Pepper & Asparagus 

Ingredients:

  • 11/2 pounds sweet potatoes (yields about 4 cups of noodles)
  • 1/2 pound asparagus, ends trimmed and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 medium-sized red pepper, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions:

Peel the sweet potatoes, slice them in half, and spiralize them into thick noodles. Set aside. Place a medium-sized pan over medium-high heat and add the noodles, asparagus, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, adding a bit of water if desired and tossing and gently scraping down the sides as needed. Add the sliced red pepper and 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Place the lid on and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the noodles are tender. Be careful not to overcook—the noodles can turn mushy very quickly. Season with lemon juice. Serve immediately. Makes 1 to 2 servings.

Apple Cinnamon Stuffed Dates

While dates are a perfect, easy snack on their own, these Apple Cinnamon Stuffed Dates take snacking to another level of deliciousness! Pair them with celery sticks and cucumber slices for a sweet, salty, and hydrating snack.

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

Let's take a look at how the key ingredients in this recipe offer healing support:

Dates: The intestinal tract builds up mucus due to low hydrochloric acid and bile production, and that can slow down absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream. Dates expel and eliminate mucus, especially that produced by pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, from the colon. The sugars in dates feed the liver; they’re a great source of glucose for recovery and restoration that allows the liver to maximize its over 2,000 chemical functions.

Apples: Provide living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when 285 dehydration or dirty blood syndrome occurs. The fruit acids in apples help cleanse the liver by dispersing toxic films that build up inside its storage banks. Apples starve out bacteria, yeast, mold, other funguses, and viruses from the intestinal tract and liver. 

Apple Cinnamon Stuffed Dates

Ingredients:

Directions:

Cut the apple into thin wedges, removing the core and seeds. Lay the slices flat on a plate or platter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Make an incision on one side of the date and remove the pit. Open the date and place a cinnamon apple wedge in the middle. Repeat with the rest of the dates and serve. Makes 2 servings.

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.

Potato Tostadas

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 small gluten-free tortillas 
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 lb potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Sea salt (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F. Place the tortillas in the oven, straight on the rack, and bake for 2-4 minutes, until browned and crispy. Keep a close eye on them since they burn very quickly. When crisp, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Place a medium-sized non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-5 minutes, until soft and browned. Add a bit of water if the onion sticks to the pan. Add the garlic, potatoes, ground cumin, ground cilantro, chili powder, smoked paprika and paprika and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, until the spices are toasted. 

Add the water, stir briefly and place a lid on the skillet immediately. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are soft and the water has evaporated. Add more water if needed. 

To make the sauce, place the avocado, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, water, maple syrup and sea salt (if using) in a blender and blend until smooth.

To serve, divide the cooked potatoes between tostadas and top with red cabbage, red pepper, sauce and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately with a squeeze of lime juice.

Caramel Apple Soft Serve

Trade dairy soft serve for this heavenly, creamy, fruit-based option. Made with banana, apple, and dates, this soft serve is a virus-fighting, liver-healing treat you can feel good about enjoying as often as you’d like!

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 recipe offer healing support:

Apples: Provide living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when dehydration or dirty blood syndrome occurs. The fruit acids in apples help cleanse the liver by dispersing toxic films that build up inside its storage banks. Apples starve out bacteria, yeast, mold, other funguses, and viruses from the intestinal tract and liver. Great for dissolving gallstones.

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.

Dates: The intestinal tract builds up mucus due to low hydrochloric acid and bile production, and that can slow down absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream. Dates expel and eliminate mucus, especially that produced by pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, from the colon. The sugars in dates feed the liver; they’re a great source of glucose for recovery and restoration that allows the liver to maximize its over 2,000 chemical functions.

Caramel Apple Soft Serve 

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple, diced and frozen 
  • 1 frozen banana 
  • 2 to 3 medjool dates, pitted 
  • 1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract or 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (optional) 
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water, if needed to blend

Directions:

Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add as little water as possible and scrape down the sides as needed. Serve immediately. Makes 1 serving.

Fruit Cereal

Love cereal? This sweet, delicious fruit cereal is a wonderful alternative to the traditional version. Made with chopped mangoes and sweet berries and topped with a cold, creamy banana milk, this offers the same satisfying sensations with fresh, nutrient-dense ingredients.

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 recipe offer healing support: 

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.

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.

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.
