Wheatgrass is deeply effective in helping the body remove toxins and supporting the function and rebuilding of the immune system. Also a powerful blood purifier, alkalizes the system, removes heavy metals, is rich in amino acids, vitamins, minerals and chloryphyll.
Aside from being delicious and sweet, raspberries are rich in elllagic acid. This phenolic compound has very strong anti-oxidant properties (inhibits free-radical development) and also inhibits mutations within a cell's DNA. Ellagic acid also causes normal cell death in cancer cells which promotes regular healthy cell turnover.

One of my favorite juice blends first thing in the morning during warmer months.
One of my favorite snacks through out the day, these little nuggets are bitter-sweet medicine from nature. They are rich in laetrile, or 'B17'. They contain four molecules- 2 glucose, one benzaldyhide and one cyanide. The latter two molecules would be poisonous on their own but because they are bound with glucose molecules they require a particular enzyme to 'un-lock' them. Healthy cells use sulfur to deactivate these molecules rending them inert. However, cancer cells have the specific enzyme required to unlock both the benzaldyhide and cyanide killing the cell upon contact. Another fascinating example of nature's medicine at work.
Flower essences are infusions of particular flowering plants and work on an energetic and vibrational level to address the emotional patterns underlying physical dis-ease.
Juicing for Life
I use an Omega juicer, which is a slow juicer and does not expose the fruits and veggies to oxidation by way of heat such as in higher speed juicers.
Microgreens, cherry tomatoes, avocado, arugula, mushrooms, red peppers topped with sprouted pumpkins seeds and red pepper flakes.
“Obstacles do not appear in your way in order to stop you. Rather, they appear in order to strengthen and hone you and your plans. They are not your enemy. They are your secret ally, but only if you treat them as friendly forces of nature.” ~ Anodea Judith
“Traditionally, at the beginning of a new venture, a journey, or a new year, the chant Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha is used to clear the path ahead of potential difficulties. This chant invokes Ganesh, the well known deity and ‘lord of obstacles”
Being in nature is medicine. Here, we are plugged in to our source and layers of conditioning are able to fall away over time allowing us to connect with our true inner self. This takes practice and willingness to change.
"Love yourself so that you can take care of yourself. Do everything you can to strengthen your heart, your body and your mind. Turn to the power within you. Find a good spiritual connection and really work on maintaining it. If you feel threatened or fearful, consciously breathe." ~ Louise Hay
The ocean is one of my absolute favorite places to be; the salty air, push and pull of tidal shifts and cadence of a sea gull's call is imprinted into my cellular memory. I equally love mountains, forests and desert as well and each place has its own unique beauty.
