Certified Natural Health and Wellness Consultant and student of Naturopathy
The word “doctor” comes from the Latin word “docere” meaning “to teach.” Naturopaths and health consultants teach natural ways to enhance health, promote optimal wellness and encourage longevity. The Naturopathic approach is holistic and focuses on maintaining wellness, with an emphasis on disease prevention.
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 CORINTHIANS 6: 19-20
“Behold, I will bring health and healing to My people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and prosperity.” JEREMIAH 33:6
7 Ways to Stay Healthy This Winter
–8 hours of sleep
–Everyday Green Smoothie
(FEEDS A FAMILY OF 5)
3 CUPS OF SPINACH OR GREEN OF CHOICE (SOME OTHER GREAT ALTERNATIVES IS SWISS CHARD, KALE, COLLARD GREENS, OR WHATEVER IS IN SEASON WHERE YOU LIVE)
1/2 BUNCH OF ROMAINE
2 STALKS OF CELERY
2-3 CUPS OF FILTERED WATER
1 GREEN APPLE
1 PEAR (OR ANY OTHER FRUIT YOU LOVE OR THATS IN SEASON LIKE RED APPLES, STRAWBERRIES, BLUEBERRIES, ETC)
1/4 LEMON INCLUDING RIND
With your high powered blender add the first four ingredients and blend on low, gradually increasing the speed until it’s reached high. Blend for about 30-60 seconds. Then add your apple and pear (or other fruit) and blend the same way as you did with the greens. Lastly, add in your banana and lemon blending slowly until it’s all incorporated. Turn to high and blend for another 30 seconds until smooth and creamy. That’s it! Feel free to mix and match with the greens and fruits but always keeping a ratio of 70% greens and 30% fruits. You can also include fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro for a fresh taste and natural detoxifier.
Spinach: Spinach is rich in water-soluble vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and a wide variety of phytonutrients. It’s high in folate and rich in chlorophyll which gives the spinach it’s beautiful green color. It’s also abundant in magnesium and iron making it a great source of plant protein. It can have anti-inflammatory properties for the whole body! A true superfood!
Celery: Celery doesn’t get a lot of fame but it should! It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, specifically related to the digestive tract. In addition to well-known antioxidants like vitamin C and flavonoids, scientists have now identified at least a dozen other types of antioxidant nutrients in celery. It has been proven to reduce oxidative stress which we know can lead to heart disease and cancer. Eat more celery!
Banana: Bananas are known for their high potassium content but even more than potassium they hold a high amount of vitamin B6, which is crucial for your nervous system and metal health. Because of the high potassium content bananas can help maintain blood pressure and proper heart function. Even though bananas tastes sweet, their load of fiber compared to their sugar content helps your body not get overwhelmed by the sugar hitting your blood thus reducing the effects of any sugar crashes. Huh, imagine that?! Whoever said fruit was the enemy, shouldn’t pretend to be God. Pretty sure He knew what He was up too when He created the most perfect food for our bodies to digest!
