Juices That May Help Accelerate The Healing Of Broken Bones

Kelli Vaccarelli, who is a guest teacher and alternative health advocate, asked me to speak on different types of juice that would help with bone healing. Since I believe in nutritious foods strengthen and heal our bodies and yes even mend broken bones.  The first thing I recommend for helping to heal broken bones  is juices, energy soups and smoothies made with wheat grass, dark leafy green vegetables, sprouted seeds, grains, nuts (nut milk) of course wild edibles, like comfrey and lambs quarters.

All of the aforementined foods, especially any food you have sprouted are nutritional powerhouses and should always be a part of your bone mending program.  All of them are loaded with iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, these minerals are proven bone healers. We can’t forget about the vitamins and phytonutrients, especially C, E, K, many of the B vitamins, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.  

My favorite green plant is wild comfrey, it has so many amazing medicinal uses. For thousands of years mankind has juiced, made tea and drank comfrey, for many good reasons.

In the case of helping a broken bone to heal it would be my personal first choice.  It has proven to accelerate healing and strengthen broken bones. Unfortunately I would be breaking the law if I told you to juice it or make tea with it, as a resent law has been handed down and it’s no longer legal to ingest comfrey. There is another way to get the benefit of this wonder green and that it to make a poultice with it and apply it over the break. I have also heard that some homeopaths have a tincture that is made from comfrey and they are able to bypass the legal issues of consuming comfrey. I will need to do more research on this one.

Another mineral laden food is sea vegetables and you should try to add them all of your juices. Here at CHI we make sure we have at least 3 teaspoons of these super foods every day. You can blend them in to any juice; I also suggest sprinkling ground sea vegetables, because of their salty taste, on to raw soups, veggies and salads.

What other foods could be used to make up the bone healing juice?

 When you make the bone healing juice, don’t forget to fortify it with seed and/or nut milks. The milks will help speed the mending of broken bones. Make sure all of your nuts and seeds are RAW, organic, soaked and sprouted.  Soaking and sprouting your nuts, seeds, and grains brings out the optimum level of nutrition. My favorite for healing broken bones is sesame milk.

Another thing is, don’t forget to blend in at least a small clove of garlic it will fortify the juice and help reduce inflammation and protect the broken bone from infection.

Kelly, there are dozens of great foods you can juice,  that will help your friend accelerate the healing of the broken bone. Below is a list of some of the ones I would include as long as I remembered to always include the leafy green vegetable-plant and sprouts as the base.

  • Apples
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Sweet potatoes
  • All Squash
  • Oatmeal- make in to a milk and add to juice
  • Grapes, especially red grapes
  • Grapefruit, especially pink
  • Raw Honey
  • Sprouted Garbanzos
  • Tomato

Kelly, I wish you the happiest new year ever and and hope and pray your friend heals quickly.

As Always,

Bobby

Raw Living Foods – What Are They?

 

Raw Living Food Gives Us The Power To Change…

  • Raw living foods are foods that contain enzymes.
  • Only sprouted raw foods are 100% alive. These are biogenic foods and therefore the most powerful foods, having life force of the germ still intact.
  • Un-sprouted raw foods are in the process of deterioration, due to enzymatic actions.  These are bioactive foods, they are ripe, mature foods, but they do not have the power of the biogenic foods
  • Enzymes start to degrade in as little as 106 degrees F or 41C).
  • Heating food over 118 degrees F or 48 C destroys the vast majority of the enzymes in raw foods
  • 120 degrees F or 49 C enzymes are non-existent in the food and therefore it is cooked food.
  • Most raw foodists do not heat their food above 105 degrees F or 40C.
  • Raw foods contain all the nutrient value inherent in the food.
  • Raw living foods (sprouted) tend to show dramatic increase in nutritional values.
  • Raw foods do not raise white blood cell counts, but improve immune system functions.
  • Raw foods are associated with positive physiological and psychological change which may increase human life spans.
  • Raw foods are known to lower death rates associated with heart attacks – British Medical Journal, 1996.
  • Raw foods have been associated with removing toxic substance from the body.
  • Raw foods enhance  proper digestion and help support the digestive system.
  • Raw foods destroy free radicals.
  • Raw foods are free of carcinogen-causing free radicals.
  • Raw foods may lower colon cancer risks – Journal of Nutrition, 1992
  • Raw foods lower the chances of breast cancer – Journal Epidemiology, 1998.
  • Raw and living foods such as many nuts, seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables, flowers, berries and leafy greens have protein – China Project.
  • Only about one-half the amount of protein, if eaten raw from protein plant food, is necessary – China Project.
Sending out love and gratitude,

You Are Controlled By Circadian ‘Believe It or Not’

It is now known that the molecular circadian clock can function within a single cell. At the same time, different cells may communicate with each other resulting in a synchronised output of electrical signaling.

Studies of circadian rhythms have turned up the following sometimes hard-to-believe information: 

  1. If we were to live in total darkness, we would fall into a cycle of days that last up to 25 hours or longer.
  2. Heart attacks are twice as likely to occur between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. as between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. and between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  3. Body temperature is lowest before waking up in the morning, and highest in the late afternoon. A temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit might indicate fever at 7 a.m., but by 5 p.m. would be normal.
  4. People react more strongly to substances they’re allergic to around 11 p.m., while antihistamine drugs have the greatest impact in the morning.
  5. Eating one meal a day of 2,000 calories results in a weight loss when eaten as breakfast, but produces a weight gain as supper.
  6. Suicides peak in the morning and early afternoon.
  7. The length of time a person sleeps is related more closely to body temperature rhythms and bedtime than to how long the person has been awake. In experiments, even after being awake more than 20 hours, people free of time cues slept twice as long when they went to bed when their temperature was at its highest (in early evening) than when it was at its lowest (in the early morning).
  8. The senses of hearing, taste and smell are more acute at certain times of day. Studies show sensory acuity is highest at 3 a.m., falls off rapidly to a low at 6 a.m., then rises to another peak between 5 and 7 p.m. (This cycle is related to the hormone cycle; when steroid hormones are released, sensory acuity falls.) 
  9. Aspirin stays in the body longer when taken at 7 a.m. than when taken at 7 p.m.Body clocks are why doctors often prescribe taking medicines at certain times of day. For example, both aspirin and antihistamines work best taken in the morning. But some types of chemotherapy for cancer may be more effective and less toxic if administered at night.
  10. Women go into labor most often between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. and least frequently about midday. Births between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. are associated with increased probability of complications in both the baby and the mother.
