Hello.  A lot has happened since I last wrote on this blog.  My Juicing did not prevent me from catching the flu.  Or maybe my weekend with the girls altered my immune system.  The latter is most likely true. While I have been at home suffering with the flu, two things happened:  1.  We had to send our Juicer back to get a new one. A screw was loose in the mechanics. So, I have gone all week without any juice and while being sick.  Great timing. 2.  I received this great book my husband ordered called the Juicing Bible by Pat Crocker.  It has been great reading while stuck to the bed  and/or couch.  The great thing about this book is that it includes wonderful information about healing different diseases with our trusty fruits and vegetables.  All this information is at our fingertips.  I hope to share a lot of this information with our readers.  Currently, I am concocting a tea brew to help my stomach queasiness.  I made this recipe up from my garden ( small winter outside and windowsill garden)  but I am relying on some of the information from my new book.  I will share this recipe at the end of this blog, if it tastes good.

The first recipe is for Migraines, in honor of Dr. Max Gerson’ first cure on himself.  First I would like to share a list of healing foods and herbs for migraines.  In the fruits and vegetables categories:  Blackberries, cantaloupe, beets, boccoli, carrots, celery, leafy greens, onions.  Herbs:  cinnamon, cayenne, feverfew, garlic, German chamomile, ginger, lemon balm, parsley. In the other category:  brown rice and rice bran, flax seeds legumes, pumpkin seeds, sunflower  seeds, whole grains. Things to eliminate from you diet:  caffeine, red wine, cheese, corn, hot dogs and all other preserved meats, pork shellfish, walnuts, artificial food additives, and alcohol.  They really are big on the FeverFew suggestion.  They suggest eating a leaf or two of fresh feverfew daily.

I’m sharing a very easy recipe called the Brocco-Carrot .
1 spear broccoli
2 carrots
1 apple
Using a jucier, process broccoli, carrots, and apple.  Whisk and pour into a glass. This serves just 1 person.
Our course, if you have any feverfew leaves roll in a ball and feed through tube along with other ingredients.  Use 1 or 2 large leaves for each 1 cup of juice.  For dried leaves crush to a fine powder and whisk into fresh juice.  Use 1 tsp for each 1 cup of juice.
Okay the recipe I made today for my upset tummy. It did fast good. I boiled hot water on the stove top.  When boiling I added fresh herbs :  sage, rosemary, ginger, elderberry tea bags. Then steeped for ten minutes.   Sage is an antioxidant and antibiotic.  Rosemary is an antioxidant and antiflammatory and Elderberries have antiviral properties. And most people know how good ginger is for the GI system.  Ummm good.
