3 Liver Detox This is can be a seasonal type thing. Spring focuses on lightly steamed veggies, fruit and vegetable juices and juice fasts, raw vegetables. Fall focuses on well cooked soups with simple nourishing ingredients, green leafies, roots, nuts, very little seasoning - light on salt, soy, simple herbs with limited processing for flavoring. The idea is to begin by getting the toxins liberated and out. Some people will desire to push the pathways with supplements and high caliber protein shakes. Others will want to do this with food. Basic outline: begin by taking solid foods (except cooked grains like rice, not wheat) out for a few days, moving into either a fast or a juice fast for three days, this is in conjunction with lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and any supplements a person wants to take, then slowly re-introducing simple foods with low toxicity and liver supportive foods and supplements for three to seven days. This clears the system and supports the liver. People often believe that at season changes it’s a good time to cleanse and prepare for the upcoming season. Diet: rice, quinoa, barley, steamed broccoli, kale, chard, collards, beets raw or steamed, carrots, toasted whole milk thistle, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raw almonds, very little salt or tamari, parsley, dill, rosemary, bitter greens. Fast - lemon water or juices with a focus on beets, ginger, greens, lemon, a little apple. Re-introduction: the grains again, the greens again, milk thistle, sulfur containing foods and herbs - garlic, onions, brassicas, beans. If in fall - make soups with light broths or blended with an emersion or other blender - no flour for thickening or other thickeners, mushrooms, greens and all of the above, parsnips This is can be a seasonal type thing.

9 Obesity Let’s talk about this one...we’ve heard it and heard it...

10 Hypoglycemia Small frequent meals with a focus on protein or complex carbohydrates. Nuts can be a good snack if raw or untreated but remember they are also high in fat. The fat can be good for satiety but not if someone is trying to loose weight. Protein shakes for breakfast: protein powder OR tofu/nut butter, milk of some sort, berries, greens Supplements: other than the protein powders there are not a lot. I suppose all the protein bars could count. This is pretty diet focused. Small frequent meals with a focus on protein or complex carbohydrates.
