Welcome to Series #2 of a 4 part series, where we’re putting on our Ninja Mythbusters hats to explore some common myths most of us have been brought up to believe support our health – when in actual fact they don’t.
In Series #1 we debunked the myth of Orange Juice being good for you (in general and especially when you have a cold or flu).
If you missed it you can check it out here
In today’s Part 2, I’m sharing three recipes à la Japanese Yoga (Macrobiotic) style to get you better faster and keep you healthier for longer:
#1 Brown Rice Cream
#2 Kuzu Tea
This tea has been used for hundreds of years in Japan. Kuzu’s an extremely hardy root plant grown in the Japanese mountains.
#3 Umeboshi-Kuzu Tea (A Variation of Kuzu Tea)
Umeboshi is salted plum. Incredible alkalising and cleansing for the blood, you can get it from good health food stores (I don’t recommend buying them from Asian food stores as often preservatives and other harmful ingredients are added)
Next time you or a loved one gets a cold or flu, try these simple recipes and feel the difference!
And a few basic hacks for when you have a cold or flu:
Stop ALL dairy (it’ll turn you into a mucous factory)
Stop ALL heavy foods that take the body a lot of effort to digest (eg: meat)
Stop ALL sugar (including juices, honey, alcohol)
Eat very simple, plain foods high in nutrients and easy to digest.
I like to combine pure essential oils with my Japanese Yoga recipes to be even more efficient.
My favourite oil to diffuse whenever anyone gets struck down is ‘On Guard’ by Doterra.
On Guard’s been proven to reduce the spread of pathogens and strengthen the immune system.
In my family I’ve noticed it acts as a protective shield and stops the rest of the family getting sick when one person’s gone down.
It also speeds up recovery time much faster than using these healthy recipes alone.
