The Cleansing Power Of Beets

farmer-woman-holding-beets

The liver is one of the hardest working organs in the body, being at the forefront of the body’s natural defense system. Working to detoxify blood that comes through the digestive tract, the liver essentially decides what is nutritious and what is waste. Let it be known that this is no easy task, and the liver requires assistance from foods that enhance its functionality.

 

Based on the increased amount of liver disease cases within recent years, it is evident that the combination of more environmental pollutants and poor diet is not doing the liver any favors. We advise making the conscious effort to incorporate liver-boosting foods into your diet, and to make small dietary changes for the sake of the liver. Enter beets into the equation.

 

Beets are some of the most antioxidant-rich vegetables, containing nutrients that have been proven to have cleansing and detoxifying abilities. Two of these nutrients are pectin and betaine. The former is a fiber that clears toxins that have been removed by the liver, while the latter assist liver cells with the toxin elimination. They are also rich in anti-inflammatory properties that encourage healthy detoxification.

 

Beets Push Out Toxins:

The phytonutrients in beets are known as betalains, and they support the liver during detoxification process. As the liver detoxifies certain toxins from the body, it is possible to experience an imbalance of hormones, energy, and cholesterol levels. The phytonutrients help to keep the balance during the detoxification process.

 

Beets Improve Liver Function:

Not only do beets aid detoxification, but they also are one of the liver’s best resources for optimal function. The B-vitamins, iron, calcium, betaine, and other antioxidants in beets help to improve liver function by thinning the bile, making it easier for it flow freely from the liver to the small intestine. According to the American Liver Foundation, beets should be consumed by anyone who is trying to heal liver disease.

 

Beets And Beyond:

While beets are essential for maintaining a healthy liver, diversifying your nutritional intake is encouraged for improving liver function. Many foods contain nutrients that help to cleanse the liver and support overall liver health. Other foods that boost liver health include licorice root, turmeric, lemons, cabbage, apples, celery, cinnamon, artichokes, and oats. Herbalists often recommend dandelion root and burdock root for optimal liver health.

 

Incorporating Beets Into Your Diet:

In order to add beets to your diet, you have to know the best ways to prepare them. Beets can be roasted, spiralized, grated, shaved, steamed, juiced, or baked. The leaves should not be thrown away because they are rich in folate, fiber, iron, and other essential nutrients. See the following recipes to learn how to incorporate beets into your diet.

    Q: I am concerned about my liver, the Iridologist informed me that my liver is not working properly. Could the lesions be manifested because of my liver not working properly?

    A:

    Q: Is your liver formula a viable substitute for a 'liver cleanse'? Also what do you recommend for obesity.

    Q: I've been doing raw for about 28 days and I am on day 9 of the FULL BODY DETOX. I have noticed that my hands are orange occasionally. This also was present before doing the raw fast and detox as well. I looked on your website to see if you had any articles pertaining to this but didn't see any. I have read up a little on jaundice, but I experience this only on my hands (palms only, not in eyes or anywhere else). 5 or 6 years ago I was experiencing pain in my liver area and began changing my diet. Shortly after that I went to see an acupuncture therapist for a back injury (car accident) and he asked had I'd been experiencing pain anywhere else and I told him in the liver area. He treated me for both. I never have pain in my liver area again but was unsure what the orange hands are all about. I don't know if that is too much information, but I'd really appreciate any information you can give me on this issue.

    A:

    Orange or yellowish hands or feet denote TOXICITY. The body is toxic, especially the liver and needs to be cleansed periodically. Give the FULL BODY DETOX a try! Soak your hands in hot water (as hot as you can bear it) and 1 box of sea salt for about 30 minutes daily. I had this problem some years ago. I was going through times, had been through so much. I went and got a manicure one day and the Asian lady could read palms and told me I needed to relax. I had been doing everything by myself for a long time in life and needed to rest. She kept emphasizing rest. While this was true, my body also needed to detox. The anger in me at certain people and certain circumstances was stored in my liver (the liver stores anger). But in order to start a new life and live life anew, I had to work on my LIVE-R.

    A:

    Before the Liver Cleanse, we reccomend your mother perform the Full Body Cleanse (while strictly following the diet). This cleanse should greatly help her issues with cholesterol and hypertension.

    Q: I bought the 10 day Liver cleanse, & I have a question about the average weight loss. Is it really between 10-25 pounds that could be released?

    A: All of the Cleanses are going to help with weight loss because of the diet that it requires you to keep.  When you eliminate waste and replenish the health of your liver, it helps with necessary weight loss.  Your body has it's own intelligence, it won't allow you to lose necessary weight if you're already at the appropriate weight for your height.  You can lose anywhere from 10-25 pounds on the 10 Day Liver Cleanse because the liver detoxes the entire body when it's functioning at a high level.

    Q: I've ordered the 20 day body cleanse for my husband who has been diagnose with (RCC) Renal Cell Cancer which is in the kidney & spread to the Right lung and liver. They were going to take the kidney out today but could not because the right lung has filled with fluid it is being drained now they have started on the chemo pill SUNITINIB I've told the Dr. about the dherbs pills he said it was fine for him to take them along with the chemo pill he's has been on raw for 12 days also taking 2ounces of pure wheat grass a day is there anything else he can take to kill the cancer cells in the lung and liver?

    A:

    The chemo pill is not going to help him because it's a poison - his body won't recognize it! He'd do fine with just the raw foods, wheat grass, and FULL BODY DETOX herbs. But it is your choice to do whatever you are going to do. Cells become cancerous because of starvation of OXYGEN. He should add 30 drops of OXY-DROPS to every glass of drinking water.?

    Q: I ordered a several different extracts i.e. ANTI VIRAL, LIVER, COLON, ANTI VIRAL to do a body cleanse because I can't take pills, but I was wondering if these were actually for kids because its sweet and doesn't seem to be as affective for adults. Is this the case are these for kids? Or should I just keep taking them? If not when are the liquid body cleansers available?

    A:

    EXTRACTS ARE NATURALLY SWEET DUE TO THE VEGETABLE GLYCERIN USED TO MAKE THEM. CAPSULES ARE BY FAR MORE POTENT THAT EXTRACTS SO IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE EXTRACT MAY BE, IT WILL NOT BE AS POTENT AS CAPSULES.

    Q: My mother has just found out from a blood test that Hep C was found in her liver/ blood. We are believers in Jesus Christ and His Word, so we don't like to speak negative words that are contrary to what we believe and hope to manifest from the spiritual into the natural.

We have read your article on Hepatitis and I found it to be a true answer to prayer, you described my mother to a T. This information has helped me to better understand my mother and have compassion toward her negative attitude she struggles with, so I am grateful to you for that.

    Hepatitis C is easy to knock out! She just needs to detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and drink Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root tea.

    Q: My Dad is 90 and in a nursing home. He has been diagnosed with Papilloma in his mouth. He cannot wear his dentures and these wort like things are growing in his mouth. At this time it has not been cancerous. I believe a good cleansing would help him, but what can I get for them to give him there. I would have to get the Dr. there to allow the nurses to administer it to him. Also, I?ve you heard of the detoxification that is done by a foot cleansing, which is done by putting the feet in water with an electrical strip which has a mineral in the water that after about thirty minutes cleanses the body. I have had the experience and it is unbelievable what is removed from the body. My son, has liver was completely cleansed by this in three weeks. Do you think this might help Dad. I have been thinking about buying one of these machines and taking it there and trying it. If you have heard of this, can you recommend any one that is better than another. Also, any recommendations for herbs, etc. Thank you for any help you have for Dad. (He also has diabetes)

    A:

    Dad needs a serious cleansing! Especially his colon of which the mouth is connected as a part of the alimentary canal. If he has trouble swallowing capsules, our liquid Full Body Cleanse would be ideal for him (in addition to some of our new great teas).

    The foot detox works wonders. This is a powerful way to detox the body.

    Q: What canIuse to help these issues

    A: We recommend starting off with 10 Day Liver Cleanse to specifically help replenish the health of the organ. It’s best to move on to The Full Body Cleanse after. In doing The Full Body Cleanse you’re detoxing all of your major organs including the liver, giving your overall body the reset it needs. The regimens and adjusted diet helps recondition your body function properly. After cleansing you can help maintain your liver health by continuing with the Liver-Gallbladder-Spleen Formula. Repeating the 10 Day Liver Cleanse would be ideal to further help the healing process of the organ.  By day 10 on the Full Body Cleanse, most people don’t have an issue with high blood pressure. When you eliminate the foods that contributes to issue and you replace it with foods that naturally lower your blood pressure, your body knows how to normalize itself.

    Q: Good morning. I tried the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and followed the diet. I must say that I am amazed at how good I feel. Energetic and focused but alas, I only lost 3 pounds in the 3 weeks. I am 5'5 and currently at 181 pounds. My body is extremely resistant to weight loss. I have done several different types of detox including the IZO juice cleanse in the last year and had not lost weight. I don't even seem to respond to a very low calorie diet. I do have elevated liver Enzyme levels and a recent blood test showed low B6 vitamin and not proper protein digestion. I exercise 3 times a week and I eat rather health and mostly organic. Please HELP. Thanks

    A:

    This means that your body focused on another area that was of more importance than weight release. your mind wanted weight reduction but your body intelligence focused on something else. Go with the flow of the body intelligence and trust it. You apparently have an energetic block that prevents you from physically releasing weight (since you've tried other programs). Consider scheduling a consultation so we can get at the energetic/emotional root of your problem. Simply stop worrying about "losing" weight. Focus on what you desire (to see yourself in the size you desire). Don't focus on what you don't want (i.e. to lose weight).

    Q: I am taking more than 20-30 herbal supplements a day and am wondering if it's okay to mix or take all of them at the same time. Here's an example of some I am taking: Burdock, Yellow Dock, Sarsaparilla, Kelp, Licorice Root, Oregon Grape Root, Red Clover, Zinc, Copper, Selenium, Calcium, Magnesium, 50 Chlorella tablets 200mg, 10 500mg Spirulina capsules elderberry, echinacea, goldenseal, vitamin e, gotu kola, american ginseng guarana, dong quai, guggulipid, red yeast rice, hoodia, dandelion, cod liver oil, neptune krill oil, acai, psyllium husks, apple pectin, oat bran chromium picolinate, wormwood, damiana, st johns wort, 5-htp and pycnogenol not to mention others. They are mostly in gelatin capsules. I am concerned that too much gelatin is bad for me too!

    A:

    You are overloading your body! Spread those supplements out throughout your day. Take 6 of them at a time every 3 hours or so. This is best for your body!

    For example:
    7 a.m.
    Burdock
    Yellow Dock
    Sarsaparilla
    Kelp
    Licorice Root
    Oregon Grape Root
    10 a.m.
    Red Clover
    Zinc
    Copper
    Selenium
    Calcium
    Magnesium


    1 p.m.
    50 Chlorella tablets 200mg
    10 500mg Spirulina capsules
    elderberry
    echinacea
    goldenseal
    vitamin e


    4 p.m.
    gotu kola
    american ginseng
    guarana
    dong quai
    guggulipid
    red yeast rice


    7 p.m.
    dandelion
    cod liver oil
    neptune krill oil
    acai
    psyllium husks
    Before bedtime
    apple pectin
    oat bran
    chromium picolinate
    wormwood
    damiana
    st johns wort
    5-htp
    pycnogenol


    We do not reccomend Gelatin capsules. Gelatin capsules are hard to digest in the body, which is why we offer vegetarian capsules.
