Apples

Apples are a crunchy, sweet, and satisfying snack that have immune boosting and disease preventing properties. They are a highly alkaline fruit that have the ability to quench both an immediate and cellular-level thirst. Apples are also an amazing detoxifier and contain both malic and tartaric acids that help remove impurities from the liver and gallbladder. 

Eating two apples or more a day can aid in the prevention of colon, liver, breast, prostate, and lung cancer and can also dramatically decrease the risk of a stroke. Apples are a critical food for the liver and have many undiscovered properties that support liver health. To find out more, check out my book, Liver Rescue. Apples are especially rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants. They have been shown to be beneficial for neuro-degenerative problems such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease as well as for bronchial problems such as asthma. 

Apples have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties and provide significant results for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as Addison’s disease, Cardiomyopathy, Celiac disease, Lupus, and Multiple Sclerosis. Apples contain pectin which is a gel-like fiber that can prevent the putrefaction of protein in the digestive tract. Pectin works like an intestinal broom to clean and sweep out debris from the colon. 

This is particularly beneficial for those who suffer from constipation or impactions. Apple pectin has also been shown to bind with radioactive residues and toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury and safely remove them from the body. One more benefit of apple pectin is that it has the ability to limit the amount of fat our adipose cells can absorb by building a barrier that naturally controls the buildup of fat in the body which makes it a great choice for any weight loss program. 

Try making a super quick and easy nutritious applesauce by blending 2 raw apples with 3 dates and a pinch of cinnamon in the food processor. It is a vibrant, healthy treat that both kids and adults will love.

Lemon Balm

Lemon balm tea has been called the “Elixir of Life” due to its incredible anti-viral, anti-bacterial, digestive, and sedative properties. Incredibly, it also has high levels of antioxidants which substantially increases its ability to heal and work effectively. Lemon Balm contains a compound called terpene which has the ability to help relieve anxiety, stress, hypertension, depression, high blood pressure, muscle spasms, heart palpitations, tension headaches, circulatory issues, and cognitive disorders such as Attention Deficit Disorder and Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Lemon Balm also benefits chronic gastrointestinal disorders including indigestion, IBS, colitis, and acid reflux. Lemon Balm has the ability to promote a healthy, balanced immune system and endocrine system, which is highly beneficial for autoimmune disorders such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue, Multiple Sclerosis, and Vertigo. It is also useful in treating insomnia, sleep disturbances, and jittery nerves, allowing for a more relaxed body and better quality sleep. 

The polyphenol tannins contained in Lemon Balm give it its anti-viral properties making it particularly helpful in healing colds, flu, bronchitis and any viral infections. Topically, Lemon Balm can be applied as a cream to help heal and provide relief for cold sores and shingles as well as cuts and wounds. Essentially, Lemon Balm is a heal-all herb and has rightfully earned its reputation as the “Elixir of Life”. 

As a delicious and refreshing drink, Lemon Balm tea can be added to your weekly health regime for a wide range of healing benefits. Fresh or dried herb can be steeped in hot water for a minimum of ten minutes and sweetened with raw honey, if desired.

Avocado

Avocado is one of the world’s most perfect foods. It is easily digested and contains over 25 essential nutrients including iron, magnesium, and essential fatty acids that help the body to function optimally. Avocados increase the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients, so they are a wonderful addition to green leafy salads to ensure proper absorption of all the vitamins and minerals. 

They are also an excellent source of glutathione which helps to boost the immune system, strengthen the heart, rebuild the nervous system, and slow the aging process. The monounsaturated fats in avocados reverse insulin resistance which helps to steady blood sugar levels. Due to its nutritional profile, it is one of the closest foods to mother’s breast milk, being a complete and easily assimilable food with protein ratios that are equal to breast milk. 

Avocados are high in folate which is essential for women in childbearing years and is also known to aid in preventing strokes and reducing the risk of heart disease. Try adding a few avocados to your diet each week and enjoy the benefits of this delicious and health promoting food.

Peas

Green peas are one of the most nutritious of the leguminous vegetables and are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, and manganese. They are a great source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). These essential fatty acids makes green peas an ideal food for brain and cardiovascular health and their phytosterols are vital for helping to lower cholesterol levels in the body. 

They are also a fantastic weight loss food since they have the ability to ward off hunger and keep you feeling satiated for long periods of time. Green peas contain a compound called coumestrol which has been shown to help lower the risk of stomach cancer and they also contain anti-inflammatory properties making them a particularly good food for those who suffer with autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, COPD, heart disease, lupus, fibromyalgia, and bursitis. 

Green peas have also been found to help lower the risk of type 2 diabetes due to their relatively low glycemic index and blood sugar regulating properties. Fresh green peas are easily grown in patio containers or gardens and can often be found in the produce section of the supermarket year-round. Frozen peas are a good alternative when fresh is unavailable as they retain a large percentage of their color, flavor, and nutrition. 

Try mashing or blending green peas with a little avocado, garlic, and fresh herbs for a delicious and satisfying dip or spread. Green peas are a versatile and nutritious food that can help to increase good health.
