Barley Grass Juice Powder 2

I first tried this green powder a year ago. I had heard of barley grass as a healthy supplement but I had not yet tried it. At that time, I experienced it by mixing the powder with water and drinking it.

I’ve learned much in the last year. And I am still including barley grass juice powder in my diet, except now it goes into my morning smoothies. This supplement is so crucial that I wanted to feature it in this series of Sunday Supplements.

Barley Grass Juice Powder

It is important to purchase the powder made from the barley grass juice, as the nutrients are condensed and easily absorbed and used by the body. This product is made from tender young barley grass, harvested before the grains are produced.

Barley grass juice powder is rich in vitamins A, B and C, and iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. It is also high in absorbable protein and contains 20 necessary amino acids.

Barley grass juice powder contains micronutrients that feed the nervous system, including brain tissue, neurons and the myelin nerve sheath. This makes the supplement helpful for healing from neurological disorders. It also increases hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which strengthens the adrenal glands. Plus it cleanses the liver, aids in digestion and promotes alkalinity throughout the body.

And this powder draws out heavy metals from the spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas and reproductive system. Barley grass juice powder has specific alkaloids that help prevent the thyroid from atrophying while blocking the Epstein Barr virus from feeding on toxic heavy metals inside the gland.

I purchase this supplement through Amazon, link provided below, and add it to my detox smoothie or regular fruit smoothie every morning. I can’t taste it at all. Combined with Hawaiian spirulina, which I also include in the detox smoothie, it prepares mercury trapped in the body for complete absorption by the spirulina.

Mercury is a huge health concern. We all have too much of this toxic substance in our bodies. Ancient mercury can even be passed down from parents to their offspring, through many, many generations. It contributes to or directly causes ADHD, brain fog, memory loss, Alzheimer’s, connective tissue disorders, excessive sweating, irritability, trembling hands, twitches and spasms and it triggers and feeds EBV in the thyroid.

I include barley grass juice powder as a daily supplement to increase my health and wellbeing by going after the toxic heavy metals in my body. I add a heaping spoonful or two to the morning smoothies. I am grateful for the incredible healing power found in plants!

Burdock Root

The benefits of this root, which can be taken as a supplement, drank as a tea or eaten as a vegetable, are many. Burdock root has a grounding ability that comes from anchoring deeply in the ground. When it comes to rehabilitating the liver, there is nothing better than this root.

Burdock Root

The liver can become filled with viruses such as Epstein Barr, shingles, HHV-6 and cytomegalovirus, and with unproductive bacteria, parasites, fungi or other pathogens. It can also become dense and harden. Burdock root strengthens and revitalizes the liver so that it can fight off pathogens. It also softens a dense stagnant liver.

Phytochemicals in burdock help to reduce the growth of cysts and adhesions in the liver, repair scar tissue and cleanse the lobes. It detoxifies the core of the liver, removing toxicity caused by metals, plastics, herbicides, and fungicides, which allows the liver to breathe.

Burdock Root The burdock plant. It is the root that is most beneficial.

Burdock root has potent antibacterial, antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties. It contains almost every known trace mineral plus vitamins A, B, C and K. It is excellent for cleansing the lymphatic system and the blood, and enhancing white blood cells to keep the lymph nodes strong so they can do their work of killing pathogens and cancer cells. Burdock also detoxifies heavy metals.

The root of the burdock can be juiced along with other vegetables, peeled like a carrot and sliced into sticks to eat raw, or chopped and added to soups. The root has a sweet, earthy taste.

Or the root can be dried and finely chopped and used to make hot tea. Anthony suggests drinking a cup of burdock root tea after a massage, to enhance lymphatic drainage. And to offer burdock root tea to those who might be in need of cleansing from physical or emotional toxins. Burdock root can be taken in capsule form also.

I enjoy burdock root tea. Organic dried root can be purchased by the ounce in health food stores or health conscious grocery stores, or ordered through the links below. I add two teaspoons of the dried root to a cup of boiling water, cover, and let the tea steep for 15 minutes. The soothing tea has a mild, slightly sweet flavor.

This afternoon I paired a cup of hot burdock root tea with a bowl of fresh papaya and strawberries mixed with frozen wild blueberries. What a nourishing tea time. I know my liver thanks me for it!

Chaga Mushrooms

This supplement is actually considered a wild food. I include it as a supplement, because I use finely ground chaga mushroom powder to make a healing tea. And, although it is called mushroom, chaga is a fungus that grows on birches, primarily, in cool climates. Read on for the amazing health benefits in this odd looking but intriguing plant.

Chaga Mushrooms

Chaga is lumpy and bumpy in appearance, its exterior resembling burnt charcoal. However this super food possesses powerful nutrients and antioxidants that boosts the immune system and increases the production of lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophils, basophils and eosinophils so that the body can fight off invaders such as viruses, toxins and bacteria. Chaga strengthens red blood cells, balances blood platelets and calms cytokine storms that result from the body overreacting to pathogens or toxins.

Chaga Mushrooms

The phytochemicals in chaga fight all types of cancers, regulate blood sugar, and support the adrenals while regulating the rest of the endocrine system. They break down and dissolve biofilm, which is a jelly like substance that is a byproduct of certain viruses and fungi. And chaga destroys unproductive fungus in the intestinal tract.

In addition this wild food helps those suffering from autoimmune disorders and virus related diseases. It is anti-inflammatory, easing joint, neck and back pain, headaches and neurological symptoms. And finally, chaga is beneficial to the liver and thyroid.

Chaga Mushrooms

I order chaga mushroom powder from Amazon (link below), and enjoy it as one of my afternoon teas. In his book Life Changing Foods, Anthony includes a recipe for chaga tea.

For one cup of tea, add 1 teaspoon of chaga powder to a cup. Pour in hot water and stir to dissolve powder, or use a cloth tea bag or mesh basket or ball and steep. Stir in 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey. Top with a splash of plant based milk and a dash of cinnamon.

I prefer using a mesh basket or ball and letting the tea steep for 5 minutes. Anthony says the raw honey helps to deliver the medicinal properties where they are needed in the body. I use local raw honey because it helps to prevent seasonal allergies. And my favorite plant based milk is unsweetened almond coconut.

Chaga Mushrooms

Chaga tea in the afternoon is wonderfully refreshing. The powder does not have a scent nor does it taste earthy like a mushroom. It doesn’t have much of a flavor of its own. I can primarily taste the honey and cinnamon. For those who don’t enjoy hot tea, the powder can be added to smoothies as well.

I appreciate being introduced to chaga mushrooms. I like knowing that I am sending healing nutrients and powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories into my body with every soothing sip that I take.

Cat’s Claw

Today for Sunday Supplement I’m sharing about one of my top four essentials, Cat’s Claw. I discovered its benefits before switching to a plant based diet. However I now know more that ever that this herb is extremely crucial to my health.

Cat’s Claw, so named for its claw shaped thorns, is a woody vine that grows in the jungles of the Amazon. I have long known that it eases inflammation in the body, and initially began taking it for that reason. However, the healing properties of this plant extend far beyond fighting inflammation.

According to Anthony William, author of Life Changing Foods, Cat’s Claw is one of the most powerful herbs available for reversing chronic illnesses and diseases. It’s antiviral properties make it ideal for eliminating viruses, such as Epstein Barr, shingles and strep, along with bacteria and parasites.

In fact, Cat’s Claw can aid in alleviating almost any symptom, from digestive to neurological. Because of its bioactive pharma-compounds, it can combat many illnesses more effectively than antibiotics, and the body does not build up a resistance to the herb.

Use Cat’s Claw for any of these disorders: all types of cancer, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, ALS, migraines, digestive issues, lymphoma, kidney infections and all viruses.

It also combats inflammation of all types, aches and pains, tinnitus, tingles and numbness, headaches, jaw pain, spasms, brain fog, heart palpitations, dizziness, muscle aches, joint pain and restless legs. It supports and strengthens the body’s immune system.

If you only took two or three supplements a day, I recommend that Cat’s Claw be one of them. It is that good for you, and that crucial to continuing good health.

Cat’s Claw can be taken in tincture or capsule form, or drank as a hot tea. I buy capsules but I’d like to try it as a tea. I don’t know if Missouri’s climate would support this jungle plant, but how fun it would be to grow the vine with yellow flowers in my herb garden.

One thing is certain for me. I do not allow myself to run out of Cat’s Claw!
