The Medical Medium’s 4 Most Healing Foods

Many people have the desire to eat healthily, but it can be difficult to determine which foods are necessary for the optimal health of you or your family. You don’t want to deprive yourself of certain treats that you enjoy, but you understand that solely eating unhealthy foods will result in illness or disease. With all of the conflicting information on the web about the health benefits of certain foods, how do you know which foods to add to your diet?

 

What if you didn’t have to do research about the foods you should eat? There are many trustworthy foods, meaning there are foods that are, quite simply, life-changing. Now, adding the foods in this article to your unhealthy diet will not fix your situation. It takes more than a few fruits and vegetables to improve your health; rather, it takes thinking about food differently and embracing fresh foods for a healthy life, not bad foods with a shelf life.

 

As you move forward in a healthier direction, take time to learn about the healing properties of different foods. Additionally, take the time to notice negative reactions, like bloating, gas, acid reflux, water retention, or skin irritations, after eating other foods. These are common signs of food sensitivities that you may not be aware of. When you eliminate the foods that are making you sick and focus on regularly consuming healing foods, the body will no longer be confused by food. This allows for full mind and body connection, a powerful step towards health.

 

Celery:

Celery is one of the trendiest foods to eat or juice right now. The anti-inflammatory properties work to starve unproductive mold, fungus, bacteria, or viruses that are present in the body and eliminate toxins residing in the digestive tract or liver. Regularly consuming celery is one of the best ways to alkalize the gut. This can be attributed to the trace mineral salts, which work symbiotically with each other to raise the body’s pH and flush out toxic acids. Celery is not the bland vegetable you thought it was; rather, it helps to support neuron function and hydrate the body on a cellular level. If you have any of the following symptoms, try bringing celery into your life:

  • Sluggish liver
  • High cortisol levels
  • Abdominal distension
  • Dry eyes
  • White film on the tongue
  • Acid reflux
  • Inflamed gallbladder
  • Rashes

 

Raw Honey:

If you are going to consume honey, the best honey you can consume is organic raw honey. Don’t think that honey is just sugar because it is far from high fructose corn syrup or table sugar. In its raw form, honey contains a wide range of undiscovered phytochemical compounds and agents that have anti-cancerous properties. The B12 coenzymes and absorbable sugar make raw honey one of the best brain-boosting foods. Additionally, raw honey supports healthy immune function because of its adaptogenic nature. In fact, it should be a go-to remedy if you are experiencing stomach problems or cold and flu symptoms. Raw honey is true medicine and it is worth adding to your diet if you are experiencing:

  • Sore throat
  • Inflammation
  • Canker sores
  • Bacterial infections in the gut
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Respiratory infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Eye infections

 

Apples:

In case you didn’t know, apples are the ultimate colon-cleansing food. The pectin in apples moves through the gut, simultaneously collecting and removing bacteria, yeast, and viruses. The pectin also helps to eliminate impacted debris and protein, which hides in intestinal pockets and feeds on harmful bacteria like E. coli. Apples contain phytochemicals that help increase electrical activity and feed neurons. The pigments, especially deep reds, in the skins of apples contain compounds that help improve digestive strength, which is an essential step towards healthy weight loss. Finally, one of our favorite aspects of apples is that they contain glutamine and serine, both of which are amino acids that can detoxify the brain of monosodium glutamate (MSG). If you are experiencing the following symptoms, add one to three organic apples a day to your life:

  • Hypoglycemia (and other blood sugar imbalances)
  • Anxiousness
  • Weight gain
  • Back pain
  • Acid reflux
  • Equilibrium issues
  • Fatigue
  • Gas, bloating, or constipation
  • Dandruff

 

Ginger:

In the hectic, fast-paced world we live in, we need foods that can slow the pace and keep our thoughts and emotions from spiraling out of control. When the body remains in a heightened, reactive state all the time, stress related illnesses like adrenal fatigue, sleep apnea, insomnia, digestive issues, and spastic bladder are more likely to develop. The antispasmodic properties of ginger help to relax tense areas in the body for up to 12 hours. Ginger helps the body let go of tension, no matter if it is in the muscles or organs. One way ginger does this is by eliminating excess lactic acid from muscle tissue. While lactic acid builds up after exercise, it can also build up because of increased stress hormone production. Ginger also enhances the body’s B12 production and aids with DNA reconstruction. If you experience the following symptoms, try adding ginger to your life:

  • Gastritis
  • Muscle cramps
  • Stomach pain
  • Congestion
  • Cough
  • Food allergies
  • Mineral deficiencies
  • High cholesterol
  • Fatigue
