Hump Day! Your doing it!

Breathe.

If you feel overwhelmed, breathe. It will calm you and release the tensions.

If you are worried about something coming up, or caught up in something that already happened, breathe. It will remind you to slow down, and enjoy life more.

Breathe, and enjoy each moment of this life. They’re too fleeting and few to waste.

Symptoms of Detoxification and Helpful Remedies

Juice fasting is a way to rest and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. With that being said, when the body releases accumulated toxins and clears dead cells, it is sometimes uncomfortable as these toxins are flushed from our body. Here is a list of things that you can do to help the process along so that your concentration can improve, creative thinking will expand, depression will lift, and insomnia seems to stop, your anxiety will fade and peace and tranquility will come over your body.

Symptoms of Detoxification and Helpful Remedies

  • Headache. This is caused from dehydration and releasing of toxins. The solution to a headache is to drink water, give yourself an enema or have a colonic, go for a walk, take an infrared sauna, get a massage or jump on a rebounder. Use essential oils of eucalyptus, helichrysum, lavender, roman chamomile, peppermint and spearmint.
  • Light-headedness. This is also caused by dehydration and releasing of toxins. The solution to this is to drink water, drink licorice tea, add sole to your juice or water. Use essential oils of peppermint, cypress, basil, lavender, rose, rosemary or tangerine.
  • Fatigue. Caused by dehydration and releasing of toxins, it is best to drink water, rest and  take an additional enema or colonic. Use essential oils of cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, fir, ginger, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint and rosemary.
  • Nausea. Releasing of toxins can be very uncomfortable. If you are nausous apply peppermint oil to your tongue, chest and lower abdomen. Drink ginger tea and take a homeopathic remedy called nux vomica. Use essential oils of peppermint, wintergreen, spearmint, ginger, lemon, rosemary, lavender, and chamomile.
  • Leg Cramps and Heart Palpitations. This is caused by a mineral deficiency. Take more sole water, crystal or sea salt as well as a magnesium supplement.

  • Cold or Flu Symptoms. Releasing toxins can make us feel like crap. Drink lots of water and ginger tea. Use essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, maleluca, juniper, wintergreen and clove.
  • Emotional Release. Caused by psycho-emotional detoxification it is very important to get enough vitamin D, sunbathing is the best way to do this but a supplement is also helpful. Lots of rest, journal, writing, write a letter of gratitude, connect with a friend, meditate, zero point, EFT.

Juice FastingCheck out these pages on juice fasting: 7 Day Fast, 5 Day Fast and 3 Day Fast.

It is wise to get moderate exercise and drink plenty of water while fasting. Remember to monitor your symptoms and if the symptoms of umbilical pain, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle contractions and gout pain do not go away, please see your juice fasting consultant, physician or nurse.

Fasting opens one up to the experience of Divine Pleasure and immerses you in the light of God which is the Truth of who you are.

Cherry Orange Soup

Flathead Cherries are sweet and heavenly!
Every year we pick and pit cherries when they are in season. I freeze them, I dry them, we eat them! We are so lucky to live in an area that supplies us with fresh sweet cherries every year!
This is a great soup to make just before a doing a juice cleanse, it is also a good soup to make during a whole food or a raw food cleanse.
Since, Saturday is the start of our 7-day juice fast, I decided to make Cherry Orange Soup!

Cherry Picking

This soup is like having dessert, its so delicious and the kids love it too!
  • Cherry Orange Soup
  • 1 pound sweet cherries, pitted (Flathead cherry’s are the best!)
  • ½ cup black cherry juice
  • ½ cup almond mylk
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel, top with orange slice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch cinnamon
  • Directions: Blend and Chill. Top with orange slice. It doesn’t get more simple than that!
Cherries are relatives of the plum, and sweet cherries are much more difficult to produce than sour cherries because, not uncommonly, a late spring frost can devastate a crop. Most cherries are produced in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. But here in the Northwest Montana we are blessed with the Flathead Cherry!
Woo Woo!
cherry picking
Sweet cherries are a warming food that increases vital energy and tone the spleen-pancreas, liver, and kidneys. Also astringent, they remove excess body acids and blood stagnation when eaten regularly, and are therefor therapeutic for gout, paralysis, numbness in the extremities, and rheumatic pain in the lower half of the body.
Sweet cherries reduce vata and kapha and can be used in moderation by pitta.
Cherries are an excellent source of iron and contain some phosphorus, potassium and calcium, as well as vitamin A.
