Smoothie Recipe

Last week, here in Charlotte, NC, we enjoyed going to Talleys Green Grocery www.talleys.com to celebrated their 14th Annual Free Food Tasting Fair. My taste buds were in their glory.... and after two and half hours of devouring a banquet of fresh, organic, Nutrient rich, Delicious, succulent nourishment in the form of foods and drinks, Isle after isle (gluttononeously speaking here) I had learned so much about how food should and could taste without all that chemical residue we as a nation have come to depend upon. It was quite the experience! Notably I was full of energy afterwards.

They served a smoothie which was so easy and delicious. When I got home I added a few of Nature's Sunshine Powders and liquids to it to make it perfect for me ~ and you!

Talley's Recipe
... In a blender...

8 ounces frozen blue berries (or any frozen fruit)
1 Banana
1 tbsp. Honey (optional - I found it sweet enough without the honey)

1-2 handfuls of ice (I don't use ice)
Fill the blender up to the 32-34 ounce line with 100 % Pure Apple Juice (not sweetened) (can also use Milk or soy milk)


Blend til all Ice has been chopped good and Liquid is moving in tornado fashion up top. Add ice or more frozen fruit to desired consistency.

To make this into a Super Nutritious Meal replacement for two - Add any or all of the following NSP ingredients before adding the Apple Juice:
(*personally these are the five things I always add, I add others on an as need basis)

1/2 scoop of
Ultimate Greenzone Powder *
1 scoop Berry
Healthy Drink Mix *
1/2 scoop
Syner Protein Drink *
1 tsp.
Nature's Three *
1/2 to 1 cup Plain yogurt *
1 tbsp.
Colloidal Minerals or Mineral Chi Tonic
1 shot
Thai Go
1 tbsp. Flax seed ground up
(not flax seed oil because it will bind with all the fiber &
nutrients in this drink and you will only get a healthy toilet).
1 scoop
focus attention powder
1 scoop
coral calcium
1 ounce of
aloe vera juice
1 or 2 tbsp.
VitaWave Liquid multi vitamin

Pour into two Nature's Sunshine's 20 ounce Power Shaker and Enjoy!!!
This can stay fresh refrigerated for about 8 hours.

    Gout

    Gout is a metabolic disease characterized by excessive amounts of uric acid in the blood and deposits of uric acid crystals in the joints. Uric acid is a byproduct of protein metabolism and is filtered from the blood by the kidneys.

    It is important, therefore, to alkalize the diet. Animal protein consumption should be reduced. Soda pop should be avoided completely. Complex carbohydratres such as fresh fruits, dark green vegetables and other alkaline-forming foods should be increased in the diet. Follow the same general recommendations as those listed under
    Arthritis.

    The following may help.

    Alfalfa, Burdock, Chickweed, Dandelion, Devil’s Claw, DHA, Herbal CA, Joint Health, Joint Support, Kava Kava, KB-C, Kidney Drainage, L-Glutamine, Lemon Oil, Pine, Red Beet Formula, Red Clover Blend, Safflowers, Sarsaparilla, Uva Ursi

    All Information in this article copied from The Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products published by the Tree of Light Publishing. Available at www.treelite.com

    pH Balancing - Overacidity & Overalkalinity

    Overacidity
    The following remedies help to alkalize the body, raising pH levels in the urine and saliva.
    Alfalfa, Anti-Gas Formula, Black Currant Oil, Chlorophyll, Coral Calcium, Food Enzymes, GreenZone, Joint Support, KB-C, Lymphatic Drainage, Noni (Morinda), Proactazyme Plus, Protease Plus, Skeletal Strength, Thai-Go, Yucca

    Overalkalinity
    The following remedies may help to balance an overalkaline pH in the ruine and saliva.
    Cellular Energy, Food Enzymes, Proactazyme Plus, Probiotics, Protease Plus, SynerProTein, Vitamin C.

    Arthritis

    Arthritis, which involves inflammation of the joints (accompanied by pain, swelling and deterioration of the joints) is a common problem in modern society. It is now the number one cause of disability in America with one in every seven people suffering from this ailment. It was once a problem largely confined to the elderly, but is now affecting people at younger and younger ages.

    There are two basic types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease that affects the tissue and fluid between the bones. This results in pain, stiffness or restricted movement and weakness. It can develop over time from everyday wear and tear on the joints or even a lack of enzymes in the diet.

    Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder. Theoretically, the body gets confused and attacks its own joints. Viral infection or toxins in the tissue may be the real cause of rheumatoid arthritis.

    Many arthritis sufferers are using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Initially, these drugs may knock out the pain and seem like a solution, but they are not removing the cause and because they are toxins themselves will eventually contribute to further breakdown of the body. Other arthritis sufferers opt to use corticosteroids or undergo surgical repair or replacement. Killing pain does not get rid of the cause of arthritis. In natural therapy we are seeking to eliminate root causes.

    Arthritis is caused by irritation to the joints. The irritation must come from somewhere. Remove the irritant causing the problem and irritation to the joints ceases. Joint irritation comes from three major sources. The first is structural stress (mechanical wear or damage). The second is chemical stress, environmental toxins and nutritional deficiencies that weaken the joints. Emotional stress (being “frozen” in our lives) can be a third source of arthritis.

    In working with arthritis naturally, start by drawing better circulation into the affected areas to help them to heal. Massage and gentle stretching exercises combined with topical applications of
    Tei Fu Essential oils or Deep Relief oils will also help ease pain.

    Alkalizing the diet is very helpful for reducing irritation to the joints. This means balancing highly acid forming foods like meat, dairy, grain, nuts and beans with more alkaline-forming foods like fruits and vegetables.

    There are a number of increasingly popular supplements to help with arthritis and joint pain. They are:

    MSM (MethylSulfonylMethane), a sulfur compound, Sulfur, the eighth most abundant element in the human body, has a long history as a healing agent. For centuries mankind has soaked in sulfur-rich mineral hot springs to help heal a variety of ailments. MSM supplies biologically active sulfur. It helps with liver detoxification and studies show it helps ease arthritis pain in many individuals.

    Glucosamine is an amino sugar normally found in the human body and is the base material for making up mucous membranes, ligaments, tendons and synovial fluid in the joints. It helps joints to heal.

    Chondroitin is a long chain of repeating sugars found naturally in the joints and connective tissues. It helps to produce new cartilage and protects existing cartilage. Chondroitin interferes with enzymes that destroy cartilage molecules and enzymes that prevent nutrients from reaching the cartilage. Collagen is another major supportive tissue in the human body. Cartilage, ligaments and tendons are primarily made of collagen.

    All of the above compounds are found in
    Everflex.

    Collatrim Plus and Collatrim Capsules both contain collagen. Where cartilage is damaged, Collatrim helps to prevent hardening of this tissue and helps cartilage to heal. A few grams a day can help restore mobility to the joints.

    There are a number or excellent herbal products that also help arthritis. Herbs can supply nutrients to help damaged joints to rebuild. Silica adds resiliency to joints so they are less susceptible to damage. It is found in
    horsetail, Dulse Liquid and HSN-W.

    Calcium is important for joints, but taking calcium supplements doesn’t help unless other elements are present for assimilation and utilization, including Vitamin D, silica, boron and magnesium.
    Skeletal Strength contains all of these nutrients and is the best calcium supplement for helping with joint repair. Still, many people actually do better with the herbal calcium found in Herbal CA, which also promotes bone and joint healing.

    Anti-inflammatory herbs can reduce joint inflammation, aid in detoxification and ease arthritis symptoms.
    Joint Support and Joint Health are two excellent formulas that help with this problem. Combination Eight or APS II will also help reduce inflammation and pain. As an alternative to NSAIDs Triple Relief can be used to ease pain. However, underlying causes still need to be addressed.

    For dealing with the calcium deposits often present in osteoarthritis see information under Calcium Deposits.

    If the kidneys are weak and not filtering acids properly from the blood,
    KB-C will help.

    The following is a complete list of products that have been used for arthritis.
    You can find all these great products at www.mynsp.com/herbsplus

    Calcium Deposits (Calcification)

    In the presence of mineral imbalances, calcium can come out of solution and form gravel, stones, hardened tissue, or bone spurs. Calcium deposits often signal a lack of magnesium or other nutrients used in conjunction with calcium. Herbs that have lithotriptic properties can help bring calcium back into solution in the body. These include hydrangea, lemon juice and gravel root.

    If you have been taking calcium supplements, discontinue their use and take 500-1,000 milligrams of magnesium each day. If you feel you still need a calcium supplement try Herbal CA.

    Herbal CA is a combination which consists primarily of vulnerary (tissue-healing) mucilants. It does not contain a large amount of calcium but does help bones and injured tissues to heal. It contains many trace elements that would help the body utilize calcium and other major minerals better. It is commonly used for problems like arthritis, back ache, broken bones, damaged cartilage and teeth grinding.

    Remedies that reduce inflammation can be helpful when bone spurs are involved. These include Joint Support and Joint Health. For hardened tissue, use the Mega Chel program (Oral Chelation) with lithotriptic herbs.

    Oral Chelation is the process of gradually removing arterial plaque from the lining of the arteries to improve circulation by taking oral supplements. It is done using Mega-Chel, minerals and other supplements. Complete instructions can be downloaded for free at http://treelite.com/downloads/OralChelationUS.pdf
