Discover the amazing blood cleansing
power of beets that rids the body
of many unwanted ailments.

The beets belong to the same family as chard and spinach. Beet leaves have a bitter taste like chard, but is rich in chlorophyll. Although bitter, the greens have a higher nutritional value than its roots.

Both beetroot and beet greens are very powerful cleansers and builders of the blood. Betacyanin is the phytochemical in beet that gives it its rich ‘amethyst’ color that significantly reduces homocysteine levels.

Consumption Tips

Choose beetroots that are firm and unwrinkled. With the greens attached, beets can keep for only three to four days in the fridge as the root has to supply moisture to the leaves. Without the greens attached, beetroot can keep for a couple of weeks.

Beets with round bottoms are sweeter than flat-bottomed ones. Eat beets fresh to enjoy its flavor better. Do not overheat beets when cooking as heat destroys all the essential nutrients. Remove the skin before cooking.

If making juice, put in about a quarter slice of a lemon (with peel) to a medium-sized beetroot to increase the nutrients absorption rate, and to enhance the juice taste.


Individuals with a history of oxalate-containing kidney stones should limit their consumption of beets.

As beetroot juice is very potent, do not consume too much, especially if your body is not yet accustomed to it. For a beginner, start with the juice of half a medium-sized beetroot once a week, slowly increasing to one whole beetroot a week.

This delicious juice is so potent that it may cause some dizziness during cleansing as toxins are being eliminated. This process may cause some discomfort but there is nothing to be alarmed about. During this time, drink plenty water also to flush out the toxic materials. Go to for more juicing info.

Nutrition Information And Facts

Carrot is one of the most
versatile vegetable that is
highly nutritious and suitable
to be included in any juice recipe.

Carrot is one of my favorite juice ingredients. It not only tastes good, it has so many health benefits and is highly cleansing.
Carrots may have high sugar content but it is also a very good blood sugar regulator (it’s a paradox I know). If you’re generally healthy without blood sugar problem, two or three medium-sized carrots daily would not cause any adverse effect (but diabetics should keep to just half a carrot a day).

The natural sugar in carrots are easily assimilated. Fresh carrot juice has a glycemic index count of 80 which is at an acceptable borderline. Its consumption is encouraged for its rich nourishment and carotenoid content which actually helps balance blood sugar. However, always practice moderation in whatever you juice.

Depending on its variety, carrots can be as short as two inches or as long as three feet, with a diameter of between half an inch to over two inches.

When we speak of carrots, we often think “orange”, but they also come in a variety of other colors like white, yellow, purple and red.

Nutritional Benefits

Carrot is one of the most healing foods that provides the finest and highest quality in nutrients, especially from its juice. It is an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6.

It is rich with biotin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, organic sodium and some trace minerals.

Carrot greens/tops CAN be eaten. It is very rich with potassium (vitamin K) and protein. Potassium is a key mineral in our body, thus high consumption of it keeps all the organs in our body in tip-top condition.

The known phytonutrients in carrots are lutein, lycopene, anti-oxidants alpha, beta and gamma carotenes, zeaxanthin and xanthophyll. You don’t need to remember these fancy names, but just remember that phytonutrients are nature’s marvelous provision for healing of various diseases.

April 2011 Cayenne Pepper for Acute and chronic conditions

Hello fellow Elks, the next 1st Friday of the month I will be at a
table in the Atrium area offering tips on self care that you can do at
home. This month is all about Cayenne Pepper as a major first aid tool
and circulatory manager.

If someone has an heart attack or a stroke, wouldn’t it be very
helpful to know what to do besides call 911? After you call 911 while
they are on their way you can be proactive for the victim by giving
them cayenne orally.

It would be best to have a preparation ready (which I will show you
how to make on Friday April 1st during the monthly Fish Fry).
If you don’t have a prepared preparation.

1) Go into the kitchen and find cayenne pepper (most kitchen have it)
2) Quick as possible get a cup, pour the cayenne in and add water,
mix, and give them it orally.
3) That might sustain them until help arrives.

That way you don’t have to feel totally helpless as your loved ones
life is compromised.
Cayenne is a circulatory food herb that is very powerful and has many
medicinal uses. I will show you more uses at the talk on Friday Fish
night, I don’t go anywhere without it.

I hope this information is helpful to you, if you want to learn more
see you at the Health Corner!

Health To The Elks!
