Anti Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

DSC_0002Anti Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

Deborah has been dealing with a lot of pain lately and has decided to look towards natural remedies to reduce some of this pain she has been experiencing. Her largest problems have been the inflammation in her joints and back that has been barely tolerable for her. This smoothie has been a perfect remedy for her and is what she has decided to drink once everyday to deal with these lingering issues.

Ingredients for the Anti Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

2 Green Apples

1 1/2 cups prune juice or 7 pitted prunes with 1 1/2 cups of water

1 tablespoon turmeric

1 inch peeled ginger root

1 whole squeezed lemon

1 tablespoon Maca Root Powder

1/8 Teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil

 How to Create the Anti Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

DSC_0030Simply combine the apples, turmeric, ginger root, lemon juice, maca powder, black powder, and coconut oil with either prune juice or seven prunes and water. Add all of these measured ingredients into a blender. Then, blend everything until it appears to be the constancy of a smoothie and enjoy all of your health benefits!

How Does our Anti Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe Work?

DSC_0010First of all, turmeric is a strong, natural anti-inflammatory with a plethora of health benefits. Due to the active ingredient Curcumin, this bright yellow herb has pain relieving properties and tons of benefits. Some of these benefits include easing the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, or other issues caused by inflammation.

DSC_0023DSC_0027Both black pepper and coconut oil are elements that will help your body absorb turmeric into your system to gain the maximum benefits from this herb. First, black pepper has a component called piperine that increases turmeric absorption by over 100%. Second, coconut oil is needed for turmeric to dissolve. Since turmeric is oil soluble, a natural fat is necessary for the herb to fully dissolve.

DSC_0015

Ginger root was included in this recipe as a second anti-inflammatory agent and an aspirin mimicking herb. Similarly to turmeric, ginger has quite a bit of pain relieving benefits. The reason ginger root was included in this smoothie was because it is a natural suppressant of toxins in the body that have been known to cause inflammation and damage in joints.

DSC_0009

People don’t say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” for no reason. Apples have a lot of amazing health benefits! Whether you want to reduce your risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and hemorrhoids or want to reduce cholesterol and detox your liver, apples seem to have your back. These under appreciated little wonders are the perfect addition for this health smoothie.

DSC_0006

The prunes were included to this smoothie to increase the overall benefits. First, prunes are high in fiber, which assists with digestion. Second, this fruit has a lot of natural sugars. While this fruit does provide energy and have sugars, the high fiber prevents the a high blood sugar increase. Lastly, this component is great for iron intake for red blood cells and boron for strong muscles and bones.

DSC_0018

The lemon in this recipe was added for its health benefits as well. This simple citrus fruit has a wide variety of helpful components for your body. Most obviously, they contain Vitamin C to boost the immune system. Also, they contain Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6 that are vitamins the body needs but can’t produce on its own. Further, lemons detoxify your liver and balance your internal pH levels.

DSC_0025

This powder was added as an amazing supplement for women health, especially those with menstrual issues or menopause. Further, this herb is another good source of iron. This has been a good supplement for energy and stamina, too. Additionally, maca contains vitamins C, B3, and B6 as well as calcium and potassium.

Feel free to replace or add elements of this smoothie to create a drink that is best for your health needs. Also, make sure to check that these herbs won’t interfere with your current medicines or conditions. This is simply the recipe Deborah has found to work for her pain and hopes it will help some of you as well!

This smoothie recipe is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.  We provide this data for educational purposes only. Nothing in this article is to be construed as medical advice. Please consult your doctor before using these products or any of this information for treatment purposes.

30 Poison Ivy Treatments30 Poison Ivy Treatments

Deborah’s husband Mike has recently gotten in contact with some poison ivy, which most of us can sympathize with. While this is an awful predicament, there are numerous home remedies for making the healing process faster and less painful. So, we would like to share with you some of the natural relief and healing methods for the unfortunate event of you ever running into on of these three leafed menaces.

     Why Does Posion Ivy Itch?30 poison ivy treatments why

Poison Ivy is a plantain the genus Rhus that is accompanied in this genus by plants like poison oak and poison sumac. These kinds of plants contain an oil called urushiol. This oil sinks into your skin and causes your body to respond to the toxic invasion, which results in a rash, blisters, or even an allergic reaction. So, attempts to remove this oil may prove to be worthwhile. Attempts at curing this irritation and of course some methods to speed up healing and reduce itching can be useful as well.

List of 30 different Poison Ivy Treatments

  1. Baking Soda: Using this in a bath or paste is a great way to dry up a rash and reduce the healing time. We suggest 1/2 a cup of baking soda for a bath full of warm water or three teaspoons of baking soda with one teaspoon of water to form a paste to apply directly to the rash.
  2. Banana peals: This cools the rash and reduces itchy skin caused by different varieties, such as poison ivy or bug bites.
  3. Oatmeal paste: If you cook a small amount of thick oatmeal and apply to skin, then it will dry and relieve the skin once it cools.
  4. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: This remedy sucks the toxin out of the skin and reduces the irritation. We suggest you to use one teaspoon for your afflicted area or to soak a small rag to apply to the area.
  5. Rubbing Alcohol: Applying this to the rash will break up the oils that are secreted from the ivy.
  6. Aloe Vera Gel: This supports a normal immune response, soothes redness, reduces swelling, cools the area, and immediately heals the afflicted area.
  7. Witch Hazel: You can dab this on the infected area to clean the rash, relieve itch, and promote healing.
  8. Powdered Goldenseal Root: Combine this with hot water to create a paste to rub on the skin. This will reduce infection. Also, you can make goldenseal tea or goldenseal supplement for quicker results.
  9. Himalayan Crystal Salt: Using Himalayan salt and water paste or taking a warm salt water bath will dry out skin and pull the poison from the skin.
  10. Watermelon Rind: Applying this to the rash will lead to itch relief.
  11. Manzanita Leaf Tea: A handful of the herb boiled into thick tea can be applied to skin a few times per day to reduce itching
  12. Jewelweed: Rub a crushed stem into skin to reduce effects from the urushiol oil.
  13. Mugwort: This will prevent rash, heal, and neutralize urushiol. Just grind fresh leaves and apply to the affected area.
  14. Honeysuckle juice: This relieve itch. Use 3 cups of honeysuckle leaves and 1 cup of water. Strain and use juice on the rash.
  15. Rhubarb: This relieves itch. Simply break open the stem and rub as often as needed.
  16. Milkweed: This will reduce itch, will dry the rash, and cause faster healing. Just pull leaves, dab milk sap over rash/blisters and let dry
  17. Blow Dyer: This will pull histamines out of the rash. Although they will build up again over time, the time between itching will increase as the rash dries out.  Simply turn it on hot and run over rash, make sure not to leave on one area to long to avoid burning.
  18. Hot Shower: This will provide a similar effect as the blow dyer by pulling out histamines.
  19. Oatmeal Bath: Grind up about a cup, create a bath tea, and let it soak for about 30 minutes or apply directly to skin to reduce the itch.
  20. Cold Coffee: The chlorogenic acid in coffee is an anti-inflammatory that can keep swelling down.
  21. Tea Tree Oil: Applying Tea Tree Essential Oil can help help after rash stopped oozing. It may sting but it will fade. You only need a few drops.
  22. Lavender Oil: Using Lavender Essential Oil will help you to heal after the oozing has stopped.
  23. Ocean Water: Similarly to the previous salt method, ocean water will dry out the rash and help with healing.
  24. Mouthwash: This will help healing. Mint helps cool the rash, alcohol dries the rash out, and the antibacterial will reduce infection.
  25. Pine Tar Soap: Using this will help the rash to heal.
  26. Creating a Tolerance: You can try eating safe foods that contain urushiol to help build your tolerance to poison ivy. These include tomatoes, mangoes, pistachios, and cashews.
  27. Aspirin: The Salicylic acid in these pills speeds healing. Make paste with bit of water, put on skin, and let dry.
  28. Dish Soap: Using this will break down the urushiol oils and reduce irritation.
  29. Calamine Lotion– This will reduce the itch caused by poison ivy.
  30. Cucumbers: Just make a paste and apply to area to soothe rash.
