Prevention Beats the Cure

IMG_1276.JPG

How do I keep my babies well while people contract virus after virus and infection after infection? Blackseed oil and bilberry syrup. The key is the ability of this concoction to reduce mucus and inflammation which is the root of most disease. I mix a tablespoon of bilberry syrup with a teaspoon of blackseed oil and I have an amazing healing potion that I give to my babies daily. You can take it too. Simply increase the dose to a tablespoon of bilberry syrup.

To make bilberry syrup, simply boil a handful of dried bilberries in two cups of clean water for 15 mins, strain, and add raw honey to taste. If you can’t find bilberries, elderberries work and they are much more affordable. Some people mix the blackseed oil with the bilberry syrup once it cools off. I like to keep them separate.

Store your healing magic in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. It’s easy as pie. Thank me later!

P.S. Children under the age of 1 cannot consume honey due to the potential threat of botulism.

Smash that Cellulite!

Have you ever seen a thin person with cellulite? Well I’m here to tell you there are probably more thin people with it than you think. What’s the reason? Cellulite is not a fat issue. It’s all about breaking up and smoothing out fascia, the network of connective tissue under our skin. It’s the biological fabric that holds us together and when it’s compromised, fat can bulge through no matter what size you are. Here are some tips to reduce the appearance of cellulite. If you stick to it, you can get rid of it all together. You can thank me later and send before and after pics.

  • Do a foam roller workout 5x per week.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Get in the dry sauna 5x per week.
  • Eliminate refined sugar and grains.
  • Practice yoga (not Hatha or Yin) or Pilates 5x per week.

Share your success smashing cellulite in the comments. Love and bliss!

It’s Time for a Liquid Fast

Sherrice Eating Clean

Liquid fasting is one of the best ways to reset your body and reverse the state of disease so that you’re able to hear from the great I Am within you.

We will be embarking on our liquid fast November 29-December 21, 2016. Stay with us the whole time or hang in there as long as you can. If you eat, so what, just start over. Here’s some information to help you get started.

ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS  

Personally, I don’t fast to lose weight. Of course, depending upon how you do it, that could be a benefit. To lose weight on the liquid fast, stick mostly to the sea moss and G Juice drinks. To not lose weight on the liquid fast, the squash and lentil soups are your friends. Also nut butter and banana smoothies.

SAMPLE REGIMEN

People asked for a sample liquid fast regimen. I say don’t follow a template, be free. I know that some are just starting though so I’m willing to share some ideas. As you make it your own, you’ll consume only what you need and you’ll get more nutrients than ever before. Feel free to visit my online store to check out my meal supplements and herbal formulas to support you during this time. Herb Culture Online Store

G-Juice

Here’s a link to my recipe for G-Juice – G-Juice Recipe.  If you’d like a pre-blended version, here’s a link to my online store G-Juice .

Herbal infusions (some call this tea. Tea is a different plant than herbs)
* Boil 1 quart of spring or filtered water in a tea kettle.
* Remove the kettle of hot water from the heat.
* Add 1 ounce or so of the single herb of your choice in a large mason jar (1 quart size).
* Add stevia or raw honey to taste (the infusion is more beneficial with no sweetener).
* Pour the hot water in the jar to the point of almost overflowing.
* Place the cap on the jar.
* Allow it to sit undisturbed for the allotted amount of time.
– Roots/Bark: 8 hours
– Leaves: 4 hours
– Flowers: 2 hours
– Seeds/berries: 30 minutes
* For a super charge, let it bake in the sun on a hot sunny day.
* Strain the mixture to separate the herbs from the liquid.
* With clean hands, squeeze the herbs to get the medicinal juice into your infusion.
* Place it in the refrigerator if you prefer it cold. It can last up to three days, if refrigerated.
* Sip on the infusion throughout the day.

WARNING: Herbal infusions can cause adverse reactions if you are taking prescription medication. Also, it’s a good idea to research the herbs you’re using to determine whether or not they should be taken on an empty stomach.

Squash Soup

  • Cut away the squash covering and remove the seeds.
  • Cut a squash into cubes.
  • Bake in the oven on 375 for 30 minutes or until soft enough to blend.
  • Blend with 1/2 cup fresh dairy free milk.
  • For a sweet blend, add some allspice, a few pitted dates or a tablespoon or so of raw agave syrup.
  • For a savory blend, add pink salt and seasonings of choice like cumin or chili powder.

Vegetable Broth

  • Add distilled water to a crockpot pot until it’s half full.
  • Add a red onion, two handfuls kale greens, one bell pepper, a few diced shallots, and other vegetable of choice.
  • Put on low setting for six – eight hours.
  • Drain broth and add pink salt and cumin to taste.
    If you don’t want to waste the veggies, blend them into a soup and add your favorite seasonings.
