Food Medicine ‘Reset’: Hand-out

Click here for PDF: Food Medicine ‘Reset’ Hand-out

This handout outlines a general Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine method of ‘resetting’ one’s metabolism and/or digestive system through food.  It also helps to alkalize the blood, or ‘Clear Heat’ as Traditional Chinese Medicine would say.  I have done this ‘reset’, ‘cleanse’, or ‘fast’, whatever you would like to call it, and I know that it works.  It was extremely helpful for me and has been very beneficial for my clients.  Alternate between the 2 recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. After the allotted time on the ‘fast’, slowly introduce ‘normal’ food items, adding one item each day. DO NOT go right back into eating your ‘normal’ diet, as this will put stress on the body.

This protocol is not easy, you will get cravings, but your body will thank you for this balancing ‘reset’.

This ‘reset’ can be tailored to an individuals’ constitution and I give custom herbal formulas to go along with it.

Article: Honey as an immunomodulator for wound healing


Link to article:  Honey as immunomodulator in wound healing article

“Many studies suggest that honey rapidly eradicates infection
with no adverse effects, reduces inflammation, swelling, pain,
and odor, and also stimulates the wound healing process.” —p.189

“…honey is
known to contain antioxidants that scavenge free radicals.”—p.189

Initially I was interested in learning about honey because I put it into my coffee and/or tea, and I wanted to learn more about it in relation to its potential digestive benefits. But, when I looked into academic medical journal articles about honey, most research has been done on honeys’ wound healing actions, as an immunomodulator.  This article has quite a bit of scientific jargon, but it was interesting to read about how honeys’ constituents have an impact on our immune system through topical application.

Hope you enjoy this article, and be aware and eat with care 🙂
