The 14 Day Liver|Thyroid DETOX

Updated  May 1, 2017  MEGA BOOT CAMP 

Turmeric  Detox TEA
for Liver Cleansing


You will notice different ingredients in this DETOX TEA, which makes it very pleasant but different from the  other A.M./P.M. detox teas that we have used in the program.  The reason:  Turmeric is a superior  herb for detoxifying the liver, however, it needs fat to ensure maximum absorption. Also, turmeric is very spicy, so in order to enable us to get an effective, therapeutic level in  our system, we need to hook it up"a little more than we might some of the other herbs. For those of you who are already comfortable with spicy herbs, such as fresh ginger you will fine the taste especially pleasant.


Recipe #1  CORE RECIPE for this PROGRAM. This is the one of my favorite recipes for using Turmeric as a tea. Drink  (1) 8 oz cup A.M. and P.M. as discussed in the class with your coach. You may also rotate to one of the other teas listed. All DETOX teas count towards your water intake





This is the most wonderful, refreshing, soothing glass of  "milk" you will ever have. You will love it, but go very easy on the sweetener. We are bending the rules a little, because I want you to be able to enjoy this brew comfortably due to its many medicinal benefits. Because is so soothing, use first thing in the A.M. and as the very last beverage in the evening, always warm as a tea.



RECIPE  #1
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of  almond milk
  • 1 tsp and you can work up to 1 TBS of COCONUT OIL  or castor oil. This adds more good saturated fats and anti-viral, anti-bacterial and antifungal properties

  • 1 tsp CINNAMON
  • 1 tsp NUTMEG
  • 1" piece of fresh peeled and sliced ginger or ½ tsp GINGER POWDER
  • 2-3 drops of  Vanilla stevia  extract to taste

  • Note: You can add filtered water to your liking and consistency.
Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a blender or food processor, until smooth

RECIPE #3









WITHOUT MILK
Use one of the  "No Milk"  Recipes if you simply
dislike the recipe

RECIPE #4

You’ll need:
  • 2 inch knob of ginger
  • 2-3 inch piece of turmeric root   ~or ~  substitute 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1-2 dashes of cayenne 
  • 4 lemons ( for juicing)
  • 3 droppers vanilla stevia
  • 2 quarts water
In a juicer, juice your ginger root, turmeric, and 3 lemons. I recommend using a real juicer, over a power blender such as NUTRA BULLET or NINJA.  I happen to love Breville because they are easy to use, easy to clean, and great quality!
In a large pitcher add your juice to about 2 quarts of water, a couple droppers of Vanilla Stevia  to taste, a couple dashes of cayenne and your thinly cut lemon slices. Mix well with a wooden spoon and adjust flavors to taste. Let sit for about 10 mins. before serving to let the flavors blend.  Will last about 5 days in the fridge. Please use warm. 
Basic Plan:
I like this choice for you which is especially good if you cannot be so bothered making the TURMERIC DETOX MILK or if you are a newbie in the program. Use this simple fresh PARSLY TEA as your A.M. and P.M. TEA


PROTECT THE KIDNEYS

The kidneys are a very delicate detox organ . We recommend that you do a kidney flush during this process, since much bile is released by the liver during the cleansing processslide-7-638.jpg


PARSLEY RECIPE ALTERNATE


Add Essential Fatty Acids

which are  required for healthy membranes in every cell of the body and plentiful amounts are required for healthy liver function. This is why strict low-fat diets are not beneficial for general health, weight control or liver functionCASTOR OIL.jpg


(1~2) TBS directly  off the spoon,

over a salad, mixed in your meal replacement smoothie.

Experiment to see which way is most agreeable to you

Remember: In order to increase turmeric absorption in the body (studies have revealed that turmeric has low absorption and rapid metabolism that lead to relatively low bioavailability in the body), once the tea is ready, you need to add a little bit of fat to the tea, such as a teaspoon of coconut oil,  flaxseed oil  or Castor oil.







REPAIR Liver  DAMAGE by  

Increasing  ARGININE


    Arginine – this helps the liver to detoxify ammonia, which is a toxic waste product of protein metabolism. Arginine is found in legumes (beans, peas, and lentils), carob, oats, walnuts, wheat germ and seeds. Notice that  high arginine foods are NOT PALEO, so we like an arginine powdered supplement Link for this item on Amazon.com @
    • Natural sources: Vitamin K – green leafy vegetables


      and alfalfa sprouts.

      More information about the benefits to your tea ingredients, I have included a quick list
      below of the top 3:

      Ginger:
      • Ovarian Cancer Treatment: Ginger may be a powerful weapon in the treatment of ovarian cancer. A study conducted at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center found that ginger powder induces cell death in all ovarian cancer cells to which it was applied.
      • Colon Cancer Prevention: A study at the University of Minnesota found that ginger may slow the growth of colorectal cancer cells.
      • Morning Sickness: A review of several studies has concluded that ginger is just as effective as vitamin B6 in the treatment of morning sickness.
      • Motion Sickness Remedy: Ginger has been shown to be an effective remedy for nausea associated with motion sickness.
      • Reduces Pain and Inflammation: One study showed that ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and is a powerful natural painkiller.
      • Heartburn Relief: Ginger has long been used as a natural heartburn remedy. It is most often taken in the form of tea for this purpose.
      • Cold and Flu Prevention and Treatment: Ginger has long been used as a natural treatment for colds and the flu. Many people also find ginger to be helpful in the case of stomach flus or food poisoning, which is not surprising given the positive effects ginger has upon the digestive tract.
      • Migraine Relief: Research has shown that ginger may provide migraine relief due to its ability to stop prostaglandins from causing pain and inflammation in blood vessels.
      • Menstrual Cramp Relief: In Chinese medicine, ginger tea with brown sugar is used in the treatment of menstrual cramps. 

      Turmeric:
      • It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent.
      • When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.
      • Prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.
      • May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.
      • Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.
      • Is a natural liver detoxifier.
      • May prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by removing amyloid plaque buildup in the brain.
      • May prevent metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer.
      • It is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.
      • Has shown promise in slowing the progression of multiple sclerosis in mice.
      • Is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.
      • May aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management.

      • May help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions. 
      Cayenne:
      • Anti-Cold & Flu Agent: When you have a cold or flu, cayenne pepper helps break up congested mucus and gets it moving. Once the mucus starts to leave your body, you will get some relief from many of the flu symptoms you may be experiencing.
      • Anti-Fungal Properties: The results of one study indicated that cayenne pepper could effectively prevent the formation of the fungal pathogens.
      • Migraine Headache Prevention: Many naturopaths have known of the health benefits of cayenne pepper, especially for migraine symptoms.
      • Anti-Allergen: Cayenne is a wonderful anti-inflammatory agent and may even help relieve allergies.
      • Digestive Aid: This spice is a well-known digestive aid. It stimulates the digestive tract, increasing the flow of enzyme production and gastric juices. This, in turn, aids the body’s ability to metabolize the food (and toxins) we take into the system. Cayenne pepper is also a wonderful medicinal herb for relieving intestinal gas. It stimulates intestinal peristaltic motion, aiding in both assimilation and elimination.
      • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Cayenne’s anti-inflammatory properties makes it a great herb for arthritis, diabetes, psoriasis and herpes-related nerve damage.
      • Prevents & Treats Blood Clots: Cayenne pepper also helps reduce atherosclerosis, encourages fibrinolytic activity and prevents the formation of blood clots, all of which can help reduce the chances of a heart attack or stroke.
      • Detox Support: Cayenne is a known circulatory stimulant. It also increases the pulse of our lymphatic and digestive rhythms.
      • Possible Anti-Cancer Agent: Studies done at the Loma Linda University in California found that cayenne pepper can prevent lung cancer in smokers. Other studies have also shown a similar reaction in cayenne’s ability to inhibit liver tumors.
      • Supports Weight Loss: Scientists at the Laval University in Quebec found that participants who took cayenne pepper for breakfast were found to have less appetite, leading to less caloric intake throughout the day. Cayenne is also a great metabolic booster, aiding the body in burning excess amounts of fats.
      • Improves Heart-Health: Cayenne helps to keep blood pressure levels normalized. It also rids the body of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.




      THE THYROID DETOX
      The THYROID GLAND (and Liver) are CATEGORY I stressors
      The thyroid gland gets weaker every time one gains weight, then releases it, then regains it, only to release it once again. This cycle fries the thyroid gland, as you complain that the weight is "NOT coming off the way it used to". Because the cycles of gaining and releasing can be as harmful as not releasing the weight at all, you need to get a coach. The good news is that we have lot's of great products in our tool kit that we can give you . But first remember:
      In all thy getting, Get Understanding ~Prov 4;7
      I like   Lugol's Iodine solution and FUCUS 200c, however if you are a long-time "dieter" meaning you have released and gained and released again over a span of 10-20 years, then use the LUGOLS. See this post to learn more here: http://alternativa-za-vas.com/en/index.php/clanak/article/lugols-solution

      I like using Lugol's in the program because it is a multi-purpose iodine. It is also effective if you have been gaining and releasing weight for much of your adult life. 
      This is just one brand of Lugol's and it is available from Amazon.com @ this link

      Read this related blogpost on Fucoidan here

      For anyone a little uncomfortable using iodine or for anyone working on their thyroid gland HOLISTICALLY for the first time, you should start with FUCOIDAN . The other item that I like is FUCUS (homeopathic remedy, in 200C strength)
      Please consult  your "GM" (GodMother) for which product is best for you
