FOOD TIP TUESDAY:Carrots

carrots  Incorporating raw carrots into ones diet particularly through juicing, depending on the person from one to six pints a day, has the effect of helping to normalize the entire system.

 

It is the richest source of Vitamin A which the body assimilates quickly, as well as contributing a nice supply of Vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K.  It promotes ones appetite and helps with digestion.  The properties of raw carrot juice is also a valuable aid in the improvement and maintenance of the bone structure of the teeth.

nursing-mother  Nursing mothers should drink plenty of raw carrot juice to enhance the quality of their milk, as a breast milk diet depending on the mom’s diet and lifestyle may tend to be deficient in key nutrients.  One pint of carrot juice, daily, has more body value than 25 lbs. of calcium tablets, which in most cases the calcium is not metabolized in it’s entirety through tablets.

cancerRaw carrot juice is resistant to infections, and works efficiently with the adrenal glands.  It is a natural solvent for ulcerous and cancerous conditions.  It prevents infections of the eyes and throat as well as the tonsils and sinuses and respiratory system.  It also is protective for the nervous system.

intestines Intestinal and liver issues are sometimes due to a lack of certain nutritional elements which are prominent in raw carrot juice.  So if you begin a regime of daily raw carrot juice you may notice a clean up of the  liver, and the material that was clogging it may be found to dissolve.  Frequently this is release so fast that the intestinal and urinary channels struggle to keep up with the overflow, so it ends up rolling through the lymph system which can result in the body using the skin and can cause a temporary discoloration of the skin either in yellow or orange in color.  When my youngest son had intestinal surgery as an infant, once we brought him home, I wanted to help his system detox from the drugs given to him, and hence he turned orange for about a week, then it disappeared.  Take notice that if this occurs KNOW that your liver needed the added assistance with cleaning itself.  It is NOT the carrot juice itself nor the carotene that comes through the skin, as this discoloration will take place even if the juice is filtered to the point of clearing it of all color pigment.  If you were to juice beets daily your skin would NOT turn red, or if you had liquid chlorophyll daily again your skin would not turn green.

endocrineThe endocrine glands, especially the adrenals and the gonads (sex organs), require food nutrients found in raw carrot juice.  We are seeing a lot folks struggling with infertility issues, when we consume a diet of nothing but cooked foods, “breakfast, lunch and dinner”, please remember that the needed atoms and enzymes are destroyed by cooking and pasteurizing.

skinDo you struggle with dry skin, dermatitis or acne? How about night blindness?  Adding raw carrot juice daily can and will support these issues.  Remember that carrot juice is super rich in organic sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron as well as vital organic elements of phosphorus, Sulphur, silicon and chlorine that is perfectly balanced in their action and reaction on our body.

ulcerFor those of you who may be dealing with stomach ulcer issues, raw carrot juice can prove to be very healing, and I will also suggest that one remove ALL concentrated sugar, starch and flour from their diet while this healing is occurring.  From and emotional basis there is also a strong connection to ulcers and certain cancers when one has been nursing resentment for a long time. So you should be willing to address any emotional connections to what maybe contributing to your health imbalances.

 

I have also had client’s who have embarked on a juice regime and called me saying that they couldn’t continue because the juices were making them sick.  Please understand that the juice routines are meant to implement house cleaning and sometimes that house cleaning may NOT be comfortable.  When ones body has been functioning on tilt without ample supply of needed nutrients, and then it begins to receive them, the organs and tissues start the rejuvenation process and now have added vigor to take the trash to the curb.  When that occurs it may get your attention.  Please stick with it, if the cleansing response feels brutal, then slow it down by drinking less juice daily but don’t quit.

microscopeFUN TIDBIT:  Studies have found that the carrot juice molecule is comparable to that of the blood molecule, I found this revealing fact to be so interesting.

Healthfully yours,
