Next time you go to the grocery store, I advise that crosses some of those calls “healthy drinks” out of your shopping list .
I’ve been fighting the greedy interests of Big Pharma and Big Agra on behalf of my patients since I graduated from medical school more than three decades ago.
And I have devoted much of my career to protect my patients from chemicals, additives, dyes life of the food industry, and processed sugars and excess salts.
So today, I’m asking you to think twice before buying fruit juices and pasteurized processed Big Agra and vegetables, as well as those that mix the two together.
And I’m asking you to give up sports drinks, too.
In return, I will share my favorite recipe for a truly healthy, easy to make, beaten.
Fruit juices tend to have too much sugar. Also very high score on the glycemic index. And they are often strained pulp and pasteurized, which destroys all other nutrients.
The human body evolved to drink pure fruit juice.
In the scheme of nature, which is supposed to consume the juice with pulp or flesh of the fruit. The combination prevents the body from absorbing too much sugar too fast.
or vegetables tend to have too much processed salt. And the way of Big Agra extract the juice has destroyed the cellular material of plants, which is vital to your health.
This cellulose can not be digested. Therefore, it accelerates digestion and prevents constipation. It also reduces the chances that your intestines weak pockets that may bleed or develop infections port.
Sports drinks have been marketed as a thirst-quenchers general. These drinks contain lab-created an incredible amount of sugar.
… Just look at the labels sucrose, dextrose, fructose and others. And the drinks come in mysterious colors found nowhere in nature.
But if you are not a serious athlete, sports drinks are not for you.
may be suitable for high school soccer players training for four hours in the hot sun. Or basketball players in college gunning for the Final Four. Or for the Ironman triathletes and professional football players.
Even then, those colorants and additives should be avoided.
And for the average person thirst, these drinks are loaded with excess sugar -. About 18 grams in 16 ounces
They are also loaded with minerals called electrolytes, which keep the muscles working properly under pressure – but this does not make sense for someone who simply want to quench your thirst
All that extra sugar leads to the average person to pack on pounds. And all those additional electrolytes can lead to potentially deadly chemical imbalances.
Symptoms of hyper-electrolyte imbalances can vary from confusion, irritability and headaches to cramps, vomiting and seizures.
All these concoctions are examples of why I developed “ortho-nutrition” as the second element of my Hierarchy Nutrition . The first element is “primordial nutrition,” brings us back to healthy living that our primitive ancestors used to eat.
Ortho-nutrition takes its name from the Greek “ortho” which means “right” or “to correct it.” The nutrients of this element are intended to correct abuses and toxins we face in our current environment.
Next comes “ultra-nutrition,” nutrients to be better than nature intended. At the top of the hierarchy comes Nutrition “telo-nutrition,” these foods and supplements support live a longer and healthier life.
Ortho-nutrition usually means the use of supplements, but may include cleaning, food detoxification and purification.
The Green Drink ortho combines both foods and supplements.
So here’s how I do it …
I collect all kinds of raw vegetables they appeal to me, along with a fruit occasionally. I then mixed with ice in a large milkshake, which still contains all the vital cellulose. So I enjoy in my spare time throughout the day.
I simply call it the “Green drink.”
And here’s one of my favorite recipes:
- ¼ cup of chicory
- 1 carrot purple
- 1 cucumber
- 1 lime
- ¼ cup parsley
- ½ cup of chard
- 1 cup spinach
- ½ cup filtered water
- ½ cup.
You do not have to follow this recipe to the letter. It may be to your liking. You can substitute spinach or kale mixed with green. You can negotiate a lemon lime.
But remember, you do not want to point your blood sugar, which will end up stored as fat.
so choose ingredients that will keep lowering the mixture on the glycemic index. And here’s a link to my glycemic guide you can use to help with ortho-nutrition.
To your good health,
