2019 Detox Rituals to Nurture your Body and Soul

Start 2019 by establishing healthy habits that will nurture your body and soul and improve your health.  Remember!  We are body and soul beings.  If you are only detoxifying your body you only complete half of the task toward optimal health.

Immediately upon rising:

  1. 10 minutes of prayer/meditation
  2. 10 deep diaphragmatic breaths
  3. Set the tone for the day by setting a positive mindset
    1. Turn your complaints into positive affirmations.  Be mindful of the words you are speaking.  They are defining YOU:  are they all negative, complaints, criticism?
    2. Make a point of performing at least one act of kindness for another person each day (and record it at the end of your day)

Throughout your day:

  1. Prior to eating your meals:  practice expressing gratefulness for your meal
  2. Put your phone/and other devices away while eating.  Digestive enzymes are released when we think about food and as we see and eat our food. If your brain is focused on other tasks the release of such enzymes essential for digestion will be arrested or delayed and your food will be harder to digest – indigestion!

Juicing vegetables is great for anyone who is interested in becoming healthier. Juicing your own fresh vegetables is not only more cost effective than purchasing prepared juices, but it is also healthier.  Learning how and what to juice is important in gaining all the health benefits of juicing to help combat everything from a cold to chronic diseases.

Many store bought juices contain large amounts of fruit instead of vegetables which can spike your blood sugar and insulin levels.  Other than green apples, fruits should not be juiced but eaten fresh.  Vegetables of all colors and varieties such as carrots, beets, spinach, chard, kale, broccoli stems, cabbage and celery should make up most of every juice. When blood sugar is a concern, leafy greens should make up to 80% of each serving. Store bought juices are also usually pasteurized to give them a longer shelf life which destroys many nutrients.  Fresh juice is unpasteurized so the taste and nutrients are preserved providing the most health benefits.

Juicing is different than making smoothies.  A juicer breaks down the food into a liquid form and separates it from the fiber.  Removing the fiber and extracting the juice enables the body to instantly absorb nutrients and convert them to energy.  It gives your body more of what it needs with less food to digest.  This gives your colon, liver, kidneys, bladder and intestines a break and can help you have a healthier digestive system.  Our ability to absorb nutrients can be deficient due to unhealthy lifestyles, pollution and gut dysbiosis.  With juicing you increase your chance of getting better absorption, almost instantly! Consuming large amounts of nutrients found in juice also supports your immune system which can help you gain control of many chronic diseases and health issues.

Many people who struggle eating their veggies can consume more by juicing.  It’s a great way to help you eat your 6-8 servings a day! Juicing allows you to consume more nutrients by adding a variety of different vegetables which perhaps you normally wouldn’t cook, but throwing them in a juicer is simple. Without the pulp, the body can quickly and easily absorb the nutrients to improve your nutrition and health.  Drinking just one freshly pressed juice each day is an excellent way of infusing your body with a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can protect your cells against premature aging and disease. Although, juicing should not replace eating fresh whole fruits and vegetables because having fiber is your diet is important for your digestive system.  To be sure you get enough fiber and nutrients in your diet a proper balance between juice and solid food is important.

Come see how easy it is to juice! Learn how to combine powerful ingredients to cleanse, detoxify, hydrate and nourish your cells to help fight inflammation, ward off colds and flu, help prevent cancer and/or reduce harmful side effects of cancer treatments, soothe an upset stomach, and much more to help your body thrive! You’ll also get to sample some of Dr. Claudia’s favorite juices and take home her recipes.

Drinking just one freshly pressed juice each day is an excellent way of infusing our body with a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can protect your cells against premature aging and disease.

Without the pulp, the body can quickly and easily absorb the nutrients to improve your nutrition and health.

With time, juicing improves recovery time as well by adding essential minerals that we normally will not get with solid foods. We have learned that our farmland soil has been depleted of essential minerals compared to 50 years ago. A handful of spinach, for example has 10 times to 50 times less minerals depending on the source. Therefore, in order to get those minerals you would have to eat about 20 lbs.  of produce every day. This is very hard to do! But not if you are juicing!  You can get these 20 lbs. easily.  Another challenge can be with intestinal absorption. Our ability to absorb nutrients can be deficient due to unhealthy lifestyles, pollution and gut dysbiosis.  With juicing you increase your chance of getting better absorption, almost instantly!

 

 

Dr. Claudia’s 7-Day Detox Meal Plan

The 7-Day Detox Meal Plan includes super-foods that fight chronic disease and is great for everyone who is interested in becoming healthier. The best part is…it doesn’t require a juicer!

Dr. Claudia’s story: “When I came to the US about 14 years ago, the village where my parents lived never had any cardiovascular disease and cancer was something that we believed only people in Westernized countries had. They were cultivating the land, ate what they raised, had farms and were consistent with getting together to pray and celebrate God and each other. Fast forwarding 14 years later after westernizing their diet, giving up on cultivating the land and choosing modern agriculture instead of their traditional one, and eating processed foods: one in two people has cancer and many die of cardiovascular disease every day in the same region that for hundreds of years didn’t know these diseases. When I call back home my mom now tells me that “only old people” get together anymore to pray and celebrate life.  “The young ones” are too busy working. She goes on to say that “they have the same diseases that people in Westernized countries have”: they are overweight, depressed, sick and tired and are too busy to enjoy their lives! I don’t need a scientific study to tell me what’s going on. I can see it clearly.”

To achieve Better Health, Better Life establish healthy habits that will nurture your body AND soul to improve your health. Remember!  We are body and soul beings.  If you are only detoxifying your body you only complete half of the task toward optimal health.
