Good Morning Greens

Let me be as honest as possible.  It would be quite unusual for anyone to say this is her favorite juice the first time she makes it. But, if you are hoping for a baby with all you do instead of passively hoping and letting life go by in the meantime, then you are going to be willing to do this drink.  It gets better every day. Drink up!  Your baby is waiting.   Good Morning Greens; In the hopper place: 1 cup Kale – this is about 2 large or 2-3 small stalks of kale. 1 cups Spinach – Spinach is something that  you can easily use that comes in baby form. 1/2 medium Cucumber 4 stalks Celery 1 Green Apple 1” Ginger root 1/2 bunch parsley; curly, flat or even cilantro will do.  1/2 bunch equals a good handful. Optional: At first you might add another apple or 1 whole cucumber to thin it out. Optional also or only: 1/2 med beet.  This will add nutrition as well as a sweetness to the juice.

Morning Pucker

Many of the detoxifying juice fasts and programs agree on the best way to start the day; with a lemon!  Waking up your liver, gall bladder and pancreas with a Morning Pucker. It doesn’t get any easier:  Roll a lemon on the counter and press firmly as you do. Cut off one end, enough to put in a hand juicer gadget (shown here) or use a manual citrus juicer.  Pour or juice into your glass. Boil some water and put about /4 cup of hot water and 2/3 cup cool water in a glass.  (Pour in the cool water first so the glass doesn’t break.) Make sure the seeds are out of the glass.

Lauras Testimony

I have hesitated to share my news with the group, as I know how receiving someone else’s good news feels. However, I believe my struggles and success may help others and therefore I share with you today. I am almost 9 weeks pregnant. (Laura gave birth to a baby girl in September 2000 and then did another cleanse and had a baby boy in 2004)  If you bear with me, I’ll share my story as best I can.  These are her words. My dh and I are both 35 now and have been ttc #1 for 2 years. We have/had unexplained infertility. I did see an infertility specialist (RE: Reproductive Endocrinologist) after 6-9 months without success. When I first starting seeing the RE I had little knowledge of my own body or general reproduction. I am in the health field (dietitian), however andtherefore understood basic medicine. We did the usual tests. Hormones, checked for anemia, thyroid and other unusual labs. Everything was normal. Mydh also did a standard sperm analysis and this, too was normal. It was then suggested we do an HSG (dye test to see if my tubes were clear). We did it and it, too was normal. Mycycles were deemed regular (29-31 days always) and from best of my knowledge I always ovulated. My weight has always been good, I routinely exercise. I eat a generally good, mostly vegetarian diet. So, it was then determined that we had unexplained IF. At this point, my RE suggested Clomid. I asked why and she said, it could boost my ovulation, provide a stronger egg(s).  I hesitated, but decided...

FAQs of Juicing for Fertility

Are you ready for juicing?  Want to make eating for fertility even easier?  Juicing is a little work for a LOT of benefit. Use the contact form to write with your juicing questions.    Q:  What juicer is the best? A:  There are so many great juicers out there. I don’t believe you have to have an expensive juicer at first.  Work your way up, if you want, but I have never needed something fancy.  At this writing I use a Jack La Lane Power Juicer.  We are just going to talk about what makes  good juice, why juice and how to juice. Q: Why Juice? A:   Juicing is a natural way to supplement your diet with natural vitamins and enzymes.  Juice is able to enter your system with very little work for your digestive system because it is already broken down. Q:  Are organically grown foods better? A:   By all means.  Organically means it is pesticide and GMO free with higher growing standards. Q:  Some juicer companies make a lot of health claims about their machines, are these claims legitimate? A:   A juicer must be able to liberate the hidden values from fibers and place them into the juice under pressure without loss by aeration or static in order to obtain the full nutritional value of such juices extracted from fruits and vegetables. Juicing Tips from Cherie Calbom’s book “The Juice Lady’s Juicing for High Level Wellness and Vibrant Good Looks” 1.  Wash all produce before juicing; fruit and vegetable washes are available from many grocers and health food stores. Cut away all moldy, bruised, or damaged areas before...

Bee pollen is a substance that bees collect from flowers to use as food. When a bee climbs into a flower to gather nectar, it brushes the flower stamen, which holds pollen. The pollen is collected in tiny baskets at the back of the bee’s legs. It is taken back to the hive, and enzymes and nectar are added to it to create bee pollen. This pollen is then used to feed the young. Bee pollen is often referred to as “the bread of bees.” What nutrients are found in bee pollen? Bee pollen is one of the few foods that, in itself, is life sustaining. This is because it contains everything we need: It is 25 percent vegetable protein (including at least 18 amino acids and all eight essential amino acids) and contains more than a dozen vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes and coenzymes, and carbohydrates.

Poor semen quality, thick mucus, cystic fibrosis; what do they have in common?

Let’s start with the mucus part. I’ve posted a webpage below that may be hard to understand.  It basically talks about the the affects of l-arginine on CF patients.  L-arginine is an amino acid which changes the viscosity (thickness) of mucus.  This makes the semen a healthier environment. L-arginine has many other strengths having to do with the heart, digestive track and lungs as well. Someone wrote to me about her husband having cystic fribrosis and thinking he should not have children.  Wow, I  can so understand that feeling.  I also see that she was caring about her baby in the way we talk about here; ahead of time. The great news is that there ARE natural ways to overcome the large issues, like Cystic Fibrosis as well as the smaller problems like thick semen. These problems stem from the body’s inability to produce mucus properly.  Let’s look at that, shall we?  The same applies to women with thick mucus so pay attention. I immediately thought of l-arginine because I have a stood behind a product I carry for years for men with thick, acidic, unhealthy semen and for women cervical mucus.  The eternal search for egg-white-quality mucus. Here is an article below that is intense but if you just read slowly is a good one.  CF sufferers can benefit from it as well. Cystic Fibrosis and L-arginine article Natural supplements can be applied to infertility in all manners of situations.  Too often we separate the body in our minds.  We believe that the endocrine system and the respiratory systems are not connected, as far as needs.  NOT so. ...
