Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog articles: Healing Foods. I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
Neurological conditions like Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis can create as much fear and despair as they do physical suffering. But once you understand that the true cause of these illnesses is actually a virus, and once you learn how to systematically eliminate that pathogen, you’ll be empowered to take your health back into your hands. Medical research and science aren;t yet aware that it’s viruses behind autoimmune conditions, but here I’ll share with you what’s really happening inside the body. For an in-depth explanation of what I call the “Autoimmune Confusion”, read my chapter on this topic in Medical Medium Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr.
Celery juice is a miraculous herbal elixir, and it’s a powerful tool for anyone experiencing neurological and autoimmune issues. In Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, I explain how the medicinal properties of celery juice heal neurological conditions and dozens of other autoimmune diseases.
Debunking a False and Damaging Theory
The entire autoimmune theory is based on a false premise that your body is attacking itself. This idea arose back around the 1950s after people started pouring into their doctors offices out of nowhere. Decades ago, I talked to a doctor who was then in his 90s. He remembered that beginning in the late 1940s, patients started streaming in with fatigue, neurological complaints and mysterious symptoms. Before that time patients mostly came in periodically with problems like appendicitis or a heart attack or a stroke, but suddenly there were droves of people–mostly women–reporting new symptoms. He said he and his colleagues would shake their heads wondering what was going on.
This was the dark age of chronic illness. Medical communities couldn't find an explanation, but they noticed autoantibodies were present through blood tests. So they came up with the theory that the immune system is destroying the body’s own organs, glands and connective tissue. There was no proof this theory was true then, and there continues to be no proof today. Those antibodies are there because your immune system has created them to seek out a pathogen inside your body, and it’s this pathogen that is causing the symptoms that get lumped under autoimmune labels today.
The autoimmune theory of the body attacking itself was cemented in, and we continue to live with it decades later as an ever increasing number of mysterious conditions are labeled autoimmune. It’s outrageous that with all the technology and advances we have made, this theory still stands. Think about cars in the 1950s, or the phones from the 1950s, and how much they’ve changed. But when it comes to chronic illness, we’re still in the dark ages. Medical communities still don’t know why so many people are getting sick, and at younger and younger ages. And unfortunately, science and research are looking in all the wrong places and putting the focus on areas like genetics, when it’s not our genes that are responsible for chronic illnesses, but viruses, bacteria, heavy metals and other toxins. You can find out the true causes of almost 200 symptoms and conditions, including many which are wrongly considered to be genetic, in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Your Immune System, Working Hard
As I share in Thyroid Healing, the truth is your body never attacks itself. Your immune system can become burdened or weakened by various factors, but it doesn’t ever turn on you.
In the case of neurological autoimmune conditions, what’s happening is a virus is feeding on its favorite foods, including toxic heavy metals, like mercury, copper and aluminum; eggs, dairy, corn and gluten; pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. Unknown to medical research and science, a virus is a living thing and it needs to eat to survive. This is some of the information I delivered that medical communities are only beginning to consider. One of the by-products a virus creates and eliminates after it feeds on these foods is what I call a neurotoxin. These neurotoxins inflame the nervous systems of anyone dealing with autoimmune symptoms and that’s what causes neurological symptoms. Medical research and science are unaware of these viral neurotoxins.
The Epstein-Barr virus is often the culprit. There are more than 60 strains and mutations of Epstein-Barr, though science and research hasn't discovered this yet, so most of these strains won’t even show up on a blood test. Other troublemakers include undiscovered strains of shingles (some of which don’t cause a rash at all) and multiple mutations of HHV6, including HHV7, HHV10 and HHV16. (Bacteria, by the way, doesn’t create neurological symptoms because bacteria doesn’t produce neurotoxins when it feeds).
These elusive, problematic pathogens can bury deep inside the body and its organs, making it impossible for current medical testing to identify them. Meanwhile, your loyal immune system is doing its best to seek out and destroy these elusive, problematic pathogens and that’s why autoantibodies can show in a blood test–they’re going after the virus, not attacking your own body.
How Celery Juice Helps Heal Neurological Symptoms
So many people have lost years of their lives, their relationships, or their jobs due to autoimmune disease and neurological symptoms. They’ve been hurt and crushed being chronically sick for years and being told damaging misinformation about why they’re sick. Celery juice is an incredible tool to help move these people forward with healing when nothing or little else has.
Celery juice contains undiscovered sodium cluster salts that break down the membrane of viruses and disarm and weaken the toxic heavy metals these viruses feed on. The celery juice then helps flush the residue out of your body, ultimately lowering inflammation.
People who have an autoimmune disease will also eventually suffer from endocrine issues as a result of the virus and its by-products infecting, inflaming and weakening the endocrine system, including the pancreas, adrenals, thyroid, pituitary gland, pineal gland and hypothalamus. Celery juice contains a natural plant hormone that is undiscovered that feeds and replenishes every single gland in the endocrine system. By balancing out the endocrine system, healthy levels of hormones can be restored over time, especially if the other healing information I share in the Medical Medium book series is followed.
Below I will cover a few common neurological autoimmune conditions that are misdiagnosed and misunderstood, however I cover these conditions and many more in great depth in the Medical Medium books so I encourage you to read and refer to them for further information and healing guidance. I also share exactly how celery juice helps each condition in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Fibromyalgia. This is caused by Epstein Barr virus’ neurotoxins. The neurotoxins land on nerves and are an allergen to your nerves. They’re responsible for peripheral and central nerve inflammation that results in the aches, pains, fatigue, stiffness, and tenderness fibro sufferers experience.
You might be surprised to learn this: Lyme disease is a viral condition, not a bacterial condition. It’s not caused by bacteria—borrelia, bartonella and babesia or any others (the list of falsely accused bacteria will likely keep growing). If Lyme disease was caused by bacteria, then antibiotics could take care of it. You see, borrelia, bartonella and babesia aren’t super bugs, like the various forms of MRSA and c.diff. So antibiotics would effectively killing the so-called Lyme bacteria. Bacteria doesn’t cause neurological symptoms. But viruses do.
Most people’s Lyme disease symptoms are caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), though all other viruses in the herpetic family can also cause them, including HHV-6, all the way up through the undiscovered HHV-9, HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12. If you find this surprising or difficult to believe or you simply want to know more about it, the best thing to do is to read the chapter on Lyme disease in Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. I explain how Lyme disease has come to be seen as a bacterial illness, the truth about tick bites, how to begin healing from Lyme disease and much more.
Whether you believe Lyme disease is a bacterial issue or you now understand it’s a virus, celery juice is a powerful tool for healing. Celery juice kills off both bad bacteria and viruses. You can start to move forward with healing from Lyme disease by drinking celery juice daily in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice, drinking the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie daily, taking the right form of vitamin B12 to heal the neurological symptoms and reading the Medical Medium books to learn what foods to avoid and what supplements to take.
Epstein-Barr virus is the unknown cause of MS. The virus releases neurotoxins that inflame the central nervous system and can also reach the brain where it can cause lesions and mild forms of encephalitis. Celery juice can break down the outer membranes of virus’s cells and kill it off. Celery juice also contains plant hormones that will help balance your endocrine system, which is important because people with MS develop endocrine system problems too, like Hashimoto's or adrenal fatigue. Celery juice will help lift you out of these conditions along with the other healing information and steps I share in the Medical Medium books. If you have MS, you can help rebuild your central nervous system through celery juice plus certain foods and supplements such as B12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, spirulina, leafy greens and more fruits, especially berries like wild blueberries.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Fortunately, chronic fatigue is now at least recognized as a real problem, but sadly medical communities still don’t know what’s causing it. Chronic fatigue has always been caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Once again, the neurotoxins produced by the virus are bringing about brain and nervous system inflammation. Before chronic fatigue syndrome was described and given a name by medical communities, I was calling it neurological fatigue, because that’s exactly what it is: a deep and debilitating fatigue caused by inflammation of the nervous system due to viral neurotoxins.
Remember, there are more than 60 strains of Epstein-Barr virus, and some are more aggressive, so they create stronger neurotoxins that inflame the nervous system. Neurons in the brain are easily affected by these viral neurotoxins, leading to brain fog, confusion, fatigue, difficulty waking, heaviness of the body, and more.
Celery juice is your best weapon for fighting the virus that causes CFS. People who suffer from this illness have compromised immune systems and white blood cells. Celery juice contains undiscovered forms of vitamin C and the trace minerals that will strengthen your immune system and bring it peace. Know too that many people who have CFS are later diagnosed with Lyme disease. When you understand the connections and know that the same virus is at fault for both conditions, you can understand why you might be suffering with both and work on addressing the true root cause: EBV.
These are just a handful of the neurological autoimmune conditions that so many people suffer with. There are hundreds more that are misunderstood and misdiagnosed. You can now know the true causes of your chronic illnesses and symptoms and those your loved ones suffer with too. That’s what I share with you in Medical Medium Celery Juice and the other Medical Medium books. You’ll also find out how you can heal and protect your health for the future. I stand behind you 100 percent. I’ve got your back. I wish you well. You can heal.

This smoothie brings a healthy spin on the classic creamsicle. It's thick, creamy, refreshing, sweet and gives a bright pop of tangy flavor with the orange.
Oranges have been called a “perfect food” and contain an amazing array of healing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. They are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, B-complex vitamins, folate, beta carotene, lutein, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium. Oranges have been known to help prevent cancer, lower high blood pressure, fight off viral infections, relieve constipation, prevent kidney stones and macular degeneration. Oranges contain a significant amount of glutathione which is critical for healthy eye and lung function. Oranges are very good for respiratory problems such as asthma or bronchitis and cardiovascular issues such as hypertension and COPD.
Bananas are one of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today. They are 76% water and are packed with vitamins such as vitamins C and B6 and minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese. This high water/nutrient ratio makes them a great electrolyte food perfect for busy moms, workout enthusiasts, and people on the go. Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.
The coconut water will provide deep hydration and nourishment to your cells. The vanilla gives a wonderful ice cream flavor and its calming effects on the central nervous system will help you move through any stress you are facing over the day.
Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
2 frozen bananas
1 fresh banana
3 whole chopped oranges, peel and seeds removed*
1-2 cups coconut water
Seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
*If you don't have a high-speed blender, you may prefer to try using 1 cup of fresh orange juice as the oranges may not blend smooth.
Place coconut water in the blender. Blend with the oranges until smooth. Add the frozen and fresh bananas and vanilla and blend again until very smooth and creamy. If you use only fresh bananas instead of frozen the smoothie will still taste wonderful. It just won't be as creamy and dessert-like. Serve right away and enjoy!

There are so many conditions and chronic illnesses that celery juice can help treat—and you can find all of this detailed information in my new book Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide—but today I am going to cover the role celery juice plays in your oral health. Many problems with teeth and gums are caused by demineralization and can be traced to bacteria and viruses in the body. That includes gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay, among other oral conditions. Medical research and science are unaware that this is one of the main reasons teeth and gum issues are so prevalent. Celery juice, when consumed in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice is a critical tool to help bring healing to teeth and gum issues.
Demineralization, which can lead to tooth decay, root canals, and teeth implants, can’t only be blamed on your diet over the last few months or even years. Demineralization happens over time and can start as early on in life as in the womb. If your parents or grandparents were mineral deficient, if they weren’t eating the foods that support tooth health, or gut health, their deficiencies were passed down to you. And this is true for most of us. If we think back to the Great Depression, for example, people were really suffering and not getting enough to eat. The generations after were born with the same deficiencies carried through the family line. Along with mineral deficiencies, there can also be a build-up of toxins in the body that are, likewise, passed down from one generation to the next. The toxic heavy metal mercury is a perfect example of one heinous toxin that is passed through the family line and causes or contributes to hundreds of different illnesses and symptoms, including teeth problems.
Foods that are particularly problematic include coffee and dairy. The acid in coffee demineralizes teeth, even if you gave up drinking it years ago. Milk, cheese, and other dairy products contain high levels of sugar and fat which coat the teeth and cause them to rot. On the other hand, an apple, or other fruit like oranges, which often get blamed for causing cavities, actually help clean the teeth and gums. The minerals and acids in these fruits, unlike coffee, kill bacteria on the gum line. This also includes lemons and limes, which are fantastic fruits for oral health. Bacteria and viruses are the cause of many teeth, gum and mouth issues so it's critically important to starve these pathogens and kill them off with the right healing foods, herbs and supplements, all of which I share in detail in the Medical Medium book series.
The Gut-Mouth Connection
All of us have bad bacteria in our bodies. Medical research and science don’t yet know that bacteria and viruses eat–they feed off of favored foods such as dairy, eggs, gluten and others; heavy metals; and toxins. When the bad bacteria in your gut, like streptococcus, eats rotting food that sits in your digestive tract, the bacteria releases ammonia gas, which travels to other parts of your body causing problems. When you sleep, gases creep up through the body into your mouth, giving you that morning breath you notice when you wake up. Morning breath isn’t the only effect, however. If you have any oral health issues, including cavities, they are the result of something deeper that has been happening in your body for quite some time. This means that if you have recently changed your diet to a diet you feel is healthier and you got a cavity after changing your diet, it is not the fault of your recent diet change. Cavities stem from issues inside the body from five, ten, fifteen or more years ago, or even from what you inherited in the womb and were born with.
Diets that are too high in fat and protein, whether plant-based or animal-based, cause this gut rot that the bad bacteria then can feed on. If you eat animal proteins it is important to reduce your consumption of chicken, beef, and fish to once a day instead of three times a day, and ideally to eliminate eggs and dairy altogether. If you eat a plant-based diet, it is important to reduce your oils, nuts and seeds to once a day instead of three times a day. Too much fat creates a playground for bacteria and viruses in your gut, and bacteria like streptococcus or H.pylori can flourish. Gluten is another favored food of bacteria and should be removed from your diet to help oral health. Popular diet trends might tell you to avoid fruit, but pectin from apples, for example, travels to the gut and binds to debris in the intestinal lining helping to dispel rancid fats and rotting proteins from your system. Fruit is essential for healing all kinds of chronic illnesses and symptoms, including teeth and gum issues. If you are afraid of eating fruit because of what you’ve heard from a dentist or what you’ve read, you can read my chapter on ‘Fruit Fear’ in Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal.
How Celery Juice Helps
Drinking 16 ounces or more of plain celery juice on an empty stomach every morning is one of the best weapons against teeth and gum issues. I explain exactly how to make the juice, how to consume it and answer hundreds of questions about celery juice in Medical Medium Celery Juice so you know exactly how to receive the healing benefits it can offer you.
There are many ways celery juice health oral health issues. Celery juice will help stop rancid fats from building up in the intestinal tract and prevent the ammonia gases I mentioned above from damaging your teeth and gums. It will also help turnaround bad breath.
Celery juice is loaded with a special form of vitamin C that doesn’t need to be converted by your liver. Good vitamin supplements are wonderful, and I always recommend the best ones. In fact, the right kind of vitamin C is one of the supplements I recommend for people with chronic illnesses and symptoms (you can see how much vitamin C and the other supplements I recommend for illnesses and symptoms such as bloating, brain fog, eczema, acne, diabetes, adrenal problems, energy issues and fatigue, dark under-eye circles, gout, gallstones, hepatitis, SIBO, autoimmune issues, IBS, hormonal issues, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation and more in Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease), So it’s important to take vitamin C, which the liver converts, but by drinking celery juice, which contains a unique form of vitamin C that doesn’t need to be converted by the liver, too, you’ll be supplying your body with the best nourishment you can. The vitamin C in celery juice instantly helps the liver and immune system and will help the supplements you take be better used by your body. The vitamin C in celery juice plus the right vitamin C supplement is great for your teeth and gums.
When your liver and stomach are weak from a poor diet plus pathogens and toxins, your stomach glands also become weak, lowering the production of hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Medical research and science believe there is only one hydrochloric acid. They aren’t aware that hydrochloric acid is actually composed of seven different acids. If one or many of the seven acids are not working well, this affects the kinds of proteins and fats you can digest and breakdown and well you do so. You may end up struggling to digest a small handful of peanuts or a thin slice of chicken. Celery juice helps restore hydrochloric acid levels and bile. You can read about how it does this in detail in Medical Medium Celery Juice. With stronger hydrochloric acid and bile, you can breakdown fats and proteins more easily and kill off bacteria and viruses. Plus, the enzymes in celery juice breakdown, digest, and assimilate nutrients that neither bile nor hydrochloric acid addresses. This is unknown by medical research and science.
One of the most powerful healing properties of celery juice is the undiscovered sodium cluster salts it contains. These sodium cluster salts, which are a special and beneficial sodium, kill off bacteria and viruses. Bacteria is responsible for gum disease and cavities and viruses and bacteria are responsible for many other teeth and gum issues. Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts also disarm toxic heavy metals, which also play a role in causing or contributing to many oral health issues. In Medical Medium Celery Juice, I also share ways that celery juice can be used as an oral therapy for different problems, including cavities, mouth ulcers, mouth sores, gum disease, cracks in the corners of the mouth, and so much more. Drinking celery juice in the way I recommend plus using it for oral therapies as directed is a very helpful tool you can use to assist healing.
Your gut health can also be restored by eating lots of fruit, leafy greens and vegetables, in addition to celery juice. You can find recipes for all kinds of meals and snacks made with fruit, leafy greens and vegetables on my blog and in Life-Changing Foods, Thyroid Healing, and Liver Rescue. Also, consider my 3-6-9 cleanse in Liver Rescue. Please stay away from eating animal proteins three times a day as this will only result in more problems down the track. Likewise, if you are plant-based, steer clear of eating nuts and seeds, or avocado and oils, three times a day, too. Try to keep these foods to once a day for plant-based or animal-based diets. All of the above—celery juice, fruits, and leafy greens—will help strengthen your hydrochloric and bile production so you can breakdown fats and proteins easier and help you start healing from chronic illnesses and symptoms, including oral health issues.
Beware as well of the fluoride treatments that dentists love to give as fluoride is an aluminum byproduct that intoxicates your body, meaning it feeds bacteria and viruses and lowers your immune system. The sodium cluster salts in celery juice act as a disinfectant that works against the bacteria and gases that have built up over decades.
You probably have consumed some food and drinks over your lifetime that weren’t ideal. Candy, soda, muffins, alcohol, cheese, eggs, milk. And everyone comes into the world with some weaknesses and deficiencies that were passed down from their ancestors. We all have something stored inside of us, from toxic heavy metals to pesticides to old pharmaceuticals to various bacteria and viruses. All of these sit in the body causing problems and compromising our immune systems. Without taking the right steps to remove pathogens and toxins from our bodies and restore liver and stomach gland function, one or more oral health issues like tooth abscesses, swollen glands, trigeminal neuralgia, tonsil stones, receding gums, and cavities are pretty much inevitable no matter how healthy your diet is in recent times. It’s so critical to eat as healthy as possible, but it’s important to know it’s not your current or recent diet, or the fruit you may have eaten recently, that’s causing your teeth and gum issues. It’s from long ago.

Watch Sarah show how drinking celery juice have her hope that she could heal her eczema with Medical Medium information.
Eczema and psoriasis are commonly believed to be genetic and/or autoimmune disorders, or simply an allergic reaction. But these skin conditions, along with others like rosacea, vitiligo and more, are none of these. Eczema and psoriasis are not genetic, nor are the autoimmune conditions where the body is attacking itself.
Eczema and psoriasis are really a sign of a liver under a great deal of duress, specifically from a virus, such as the Epstein-Barr virus and the heavy metals copper and/or mercury. When a virus in the liver feeds on this copper and/or mercury, internally produced dermatoxins are eliminated by the virus. These dermatoxins back up into the lymphatic system when the liver is sluggish and overwhelmed and head to the skin. As the dermatoxins surface through the skin, over a hundred different varieties of eczema and psoriasis can result.
Fortunately, there are answers here for you and you can heal your eczema and psoriasis. You can experience smooth, pain-free, and itch-free skin once again.

Cauliflower is a nutrient rich vegetable that is excellent for supporting a strong immune system and optimum health. Cauliflower is incredibly high in vitamin C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as boron, calcium, molybdenum, and tryptophan. It is also a good source of high quality protein that is easily assimilated into the body. Cauliflower contains powerful anti-cancer compounds such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane, which are particularly beneficial for helping to prevent breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, stomach, and prostate cancers.
Cauliflower also contains a compound called Di-indolyl-methan (DIM) which has been shown to be effective in the treatment of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical dysplasia. Cauliflower also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties due to its omega-3 and vitamin K content and is an essential food for those trying to prevent chronic inflammation as in fibromyalgia, hepatitis, arthritis, cardiomyopathy, cystic fibrosis, IBS, and Alzheimer’s disease.

“Sweet potatoes: 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.” – excerpt from Liver Rescue
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 1/2 cups diced sweet potato
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp coconut aminos
1 tbsp tomato paste
1-4-1/2 cup water, more if needed
1 cup walnuts
1/3 cup ground golden flaxseed, more if needed
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 gluten-free and corn-free burger buns
Additional topping options:
Spinach or lettuce
Thinly sliced red onion
Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add the onions and mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes until the onions start to soften. Add the sweet potato, garlic, coconut aminos and tomato paste. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often, until the sweet potato starts to soften. Add the water add place on the lid. Cook at medium-high heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until the sweet potato is soft. Add more water if necessary. Remove from heat and cool completely.
Place the sweet potato mixture in a food processor and pulse a couple times until the mixture is smooth but still chunky. Don’t over process. Place in a medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside.
Add the walnuts to the food processor and blend until you get a coarse crumb. Add to the bowl with the sweet potato mixture, followed by the ground flaxseed, smoked paprika and ground cumin. Mix until uniform. The mixture should be firm enough to shape into patties - if not then add more ground flaxseed. Shape into patties.

These crispy baked zucchini fries are the perfect healthy and delicious way to conquer a fried food craving! Coated in chickpea breadcrumbs and spices, these fries have that crunch factor that will both satisfy you and keep you coming back for more!
Zucchini is a highly alkaline food that is one of the mildest and easiest vegetables to digest. Zucchini is a great source of vitamin A, C, & B-complex as well as minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, and manganese. It is high in fiber and low in calories which makes it a great weight loss food and helps to reduce constipation and bloating.
Zucchini is a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration. It 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 also a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.
1 medium-sized zucchini, cut into fries
3/4 cup chickpea breadcrumbs
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
2 1/2 tbsp ground golden flaxseeds
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
6 oz tomato paste
1/3 cup apple juice
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp raw honey
1/4 tsp dried onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
pinch cayenne pepper or chili flakes (optional)
sea salt to taste (optional)
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
Combine the chickpea breadcrumbs, dried oregano, paprika, garlic powder and sea salt in a small bowl and mix until combined. Set aside.
In another bowl, make the flax egg by combing the ground flaxseeds and unsweetened almond milk. Whisk until uniform. Set aside for at least 5 minutes to thicken.
Dip the zucchini first into the flax egg and then into the breadcrumb mixture, coating it evenly. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the zucchini pieces. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Serve immediately.

Grazing is critical to healing. If your blood sugar drops and your liver’s glucose reserves are low to nonexistent like most people’s are (for more on why this happens and how you can heal, you can read Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, your adrenals are going to be forced to produce excess adrenaline to compensate—corrosive adrenaline that wears out your adrenals and strains your liver and nervous system. If you're already experiencing a chronic illness or symptom, such as acne, eczema, acid reflux, bloating, weight gain, thyroid problems, diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, addictions, eating disorders, fibroids, cysts, menstrual pain, migraines, autoimmune conditions, Raynaud’s syndrome, Parkinson’s, endometriosis, hair thinning and loss, an autoimmune condition, or any other chronic illness or symptom, your adrenals need support so unnecessary adrenaline isn't being released that could worsen your symptoms or bring on new ones.

Pineapple and mango are favorite fruits around the world for good reason, and they blend together perfectly in this recipe. The kick of ginger adds a hint of warmth and spice while also providing a myriad of health benefits such as aiding in digestion and assimilation and helping to prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.
Pineapple’s healing compounds act as brushing mechanisms that help clean up and drive out sticky mucus & debris that can build up inside the liver. Pineapple helps to dissolve gallstones and is an excellent fruit to include in your diet to help cleanse and detox the entire body.
Ginger also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols and is a powerful painkiller which makes it especially beneficial for those who suffer with joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger has incredible immune-boosting and germ fighting abilities and has even been shown to help provide protection and relief from E.coli, Staph infections, and Candida albicans.

Mangos aren't just exceptionally tasty, they are also have incredible healing properties. They help to alkalinize the whole body by helping to flush out toxic acids and rebuild the alkali reserves in the body. They're also packed with enzymes and are a prebiotic food, meaning they contain compounds that stimulate and feed the good bacteria in the intestines which greatly aids in digestion and assimilation.
Mangoes are an amazing source of vitamins A, C, E, and B-complex as well as health promoting flavonoids such as beta-carotene and alpha-carotene. They're also a powerful anti-cancer food and are specifically known to help prevent lung, breast, colon, prostate, blood, and oral cancers. They are also highly beneficial in the prevention of strokes, heart disease, arthritis, cognitive disorders, respiratory diseases, and kidney disease.
Mangoes contain a significant amount of pyridoxine (B-6) which is vital for the synthesis of serotonin and dopamine in the brain and is essential in maintaining hormonal balance and proper immune function. Mangoes also help prevent insomnia and provide for better sleep. In some countries mangos are eaten right before bed as a natural sleep aid.
