Live Food—The Life In Your Food

http://www.juicing-for-health.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/fruits.jpgEach one of us are given only this one body. We alone are responsible to nourish our body and keep it healthy for as long as possible.

We all know that without health, all the money we have accumulated on this earth will amount to nothing.

Whatever you put into your mouth, let it be that you consume more nutritious foods than the harmful foods.

Nutritious foods are natural, whole, pure and fresh. The closer food is to its natural state, the higher its nutritional value. These nutritious qualities of the foods are what give life to your body.

Always choose pure, natural and whole foods over refined, bleached, polished, and processed foods with preservatives, artificial colors/flavors, or chemical additives of any kind.

The Wonders Of Fruits

http://www.juicing-for-health.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/icon-fruits.jpg

I believe fresh fruits are Universe’s provision of the finest and best sources of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and anti-oxidants that our bodies need.

Most fruits have very high concentration of one kind or another vitamin or mineral that our bodies so crave. When we regularly consume a variety of fruits, it provides the vitamins, minerals and enzymes our bodies need to keep it in its most optimum form.

Universe created our bodies to be self-building, self-repairing and self-rejuvenating. When we fail to nourish it with poor choices of food, when we are stressed, when we live an unhealthy lifestyle, and when we abuse our bodies by addiction or even because of the polluted air we inhale, the cells in our body start to deteriorate. This is when the ugly degenerative diseases surface.

Fruits help to prevent diseases and nourish our cells back to health. So start making wise choices now concerning your health. Choose to live healthy.

But Why Juice?

There are many important reasons why you should juice. I’m not advocating that you should ONLY juice all your fruits and vegetables.  No, you must still eat your fiber too.  What I’m suggesting is that you drink fresh juices on top of your fresh foods, for healing purpose.  This site is about juicing for health and drinking fresh juices helps with highest absorption of the best nutrients for rapid healing. Here are only some of the reasons:

  • Juicing helps to “pre-digest” your food.
    As a result of our poor food choices over the years, most of us have bodies which have become weak in absorbing the nutrients that we need. Juicing “pre-digest” the fruits so that they are readily digested and assimilated before it gets eliminated from our body.
  • You will need one or two pounds of fruits daily to obtain the optimum level of nutrients needed for your body.
    By juicing, it allows you to accomplish this easily. You don’t want to be eating so much fruits that it makes you sick of fruits. Moreover, this would violate the principle of regular food rotation and increase your chance of developing an allergy towards a certain kind of food. True, that our ancestors didn’t have to eat/drink so much fruits and vegetables, but in their time, they didn’t have to hassle with industrial chemicals, polluted environment and poor dietary nor poor lifestyles.
  • Juicing removes indigestible fiber
    The nutrients we are after, are trapped in indigestible fiber. For example, when you eat a carrot, you are only able to assimilate 1% of the beta-carotene. But wonder of wonders, when you juice, you are able to assimilate nearly 100% of the beta-carotene!
  • Easy digestion and assimilation
    Solid foods require many hours of digestion before any nutrient is made available to the cells. Juices are assimilated within 15 minutes of consumption, with very little effort on the part of the digestive system. Because in its liquid form, the enzymes are not wasted to fuel its own digestion. As a result, the body can quickly distribute the much needed enzymes to other parts of the body to heal, build, restore and repair.
  • Juices are cleansing
    Only with sufficient amount of nutrients in the fruits through juicing, can the juices be cleansing to the blood. Blood is life. By keeping our blood clean and loaded with nutrients, we can expect to live better and longer.

Willow Bark

willow2Willow bark
The use of willow bark dates back thousands of years, to the time of Hippocrates (400 BC) when patients were advised to chew on the bark to reduce fever and inflammation. Willow bark has been used throughout the centuries in China and Europe, and continues to be used today for the treatment of pain (particularly low back pain and osteoarthritis), headache, and inflammatory conditions, such as bursitis and tendinitis. The bark of white willow contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). In combination with the herb’s powerful anti-inflammatory plant compounds (called flavonoids), salicin is thought to be responsible for the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb. In fact, in the 1800s, salicin was used to develop aspirin. White willow appears to bring pain relief more slowly than aspirin, but its effects may last longer.
bark sold in Europe and the United States usually includes a combination of the bark from white, purple, and crack willows.

Medicinal Uses and Indications

Willow bark is used to ease pain and reduce inflammation. Researchers believe that the chemical salicin, found in willow bark, is responsible for these effects. However, studies show several other components of willow bark, including plant chemicals called polyphenols and flavonoids, have antioxidant, fever reducing, antiseptic, and immune boosting properties. Some studies show willow is as effective as aspirin for reducing pain and inflammation (but not fever), and at a much lower dose. Scientists think that may be due to other compounds in the herb. More research is needed.

Treatment

Studies suggest that willow bark may be useful for the following conditions:

Headache

Willow bark has been shown to relieve headaches. There is some evidence that it is less likely to cause gastrointestinal side effects than other pain relievers, such as ibuprofen (Advil) and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, do. However, studies have not shown this beyond all doubt, and people who are prone to stomach upset may want to avoid willow bark. Large-scale studies are needed to fully determine how safe and effective willow bark is for chronic or recurring headaches.

Low back pain

Willow bark appears to be effective for back pain. In a well-designed study of nearly 200 people with low back pain, those who received willow bark experienced a significant improvement in pain compared to those who received placebo. People who received higher doses of willow bark (240 mg salicin) had more significant pain relief than those who received low doses (120 mg salicin).

Osteoarthritis

Several studies show that willow is more effective at reducing pain from osteoarthritis than placebo. In a small study of people with osteoarthritis of the neck or lower back, those who received willow bark experienced significant improvement in symptoms compared to those who received placebo. A similar study of 78 patients hospitalized with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip joint found that patients who received willow bark had significant pain relief compared to those who received placebo.

Other uses

Professional herbalists may recommend willow bark for the following conditions, however, no scientific studies have shown that it works:
Menstrual cramps
Fever
Flu
Tendonitis
Bursitis

Dosage and Administration

Pediatric

Because of the danger of developing Reye syndrome (a rare but serious illness associated with the use of aspirin in children), children under the age of 16 should not take willow bark.

Adult

General dosing guidelines for willow bark are as follows:
Dried herb (used to make tea): boil 1 – 2 tsp of dried bark in 8 oz of water and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes; let steep for ½ hour; drink 3 – 4 cups daily.
Powdered herb (available in capsules) or liquid: 60 – 240 mg of standardized salicin per day; talk to your doctor before taking a higher dose.
Tincture (1:5, 30% alcohol): 4 – 6 mL 3 times per day.

Precautions

Because willow bark contains salicin, people who are allergic or sensitive to salicylates (such as aspirin) should not use willow bark. Some researchers suggest that people with asthma, diabetes, gout, gastritis, hemophilia, and stomach ulcers should also avoid willow bark. If you have any of these conditions, take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) regularly, or blood-thinning medication, ask your health care provider before taking willow bark. Children under the age of 16 should not take willow bark.

Side Effects

Side effects tend to be mild. However, stomach upset, ulcers, nausea, vomiting, and stomach bleeding are potential side effects of all compounds containing salicylates. Overdoses of willow bark may cause skin rash, stomach inflammation/irritation, nausea, vomiting, kidney inflammation, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
