Natural ways to cure Asthma and Allergies.
Asthma medication was a big part of my life. I could go out without my puffers and if I did I would freak out. From birth I had bronchial problems. Puffers, anti-histamines and carrying round an Epipen full of adrenalin were just part of my life dependant on drugs to control my allergies. At 14 I started juicing. I began with combinations like carrot and apple, I gradually progressing to more extraordinary and unusual taste sensations. Now I love anything with ginger and a chunk of turmeric.
Asthma and allergies are indicators that the body has resorted to an increase in production of histamine. This is the sensor for the metabolism of water and its distribution within the body. According to Dr F Batmanghelidj in his wonderful book “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water”, when the body is adequately hydrated (link to blog of hydration) histamine activity will remain unexaggerated. When the body is dehydrated, histamine activity becomes exaggerated for water regulation and this has a knock on effect for the immune system and lung function. I wish I had read this book while I was growing up. Anyone with allergies and asthma in the family should get a copy of this book.
Juicing has been my passion of mine since my Mum gave me a juicer for my 14th Birthday, together with a book called the Uses of Juices which I LOVE and still refer to regularly. My aim is to help people, with the power of juicing have more energy and create a healthier lifestyle free from pain and disease. I have experienced the first hand benefits of good nutrition such as more energy; increased tolerance of stress; balanced moods; and stable blood sugar. I suffered allergies and asthma for my whole life. So when I was 14 wrote a diary of my diet to help improve my asthma. But I still battled with asthma until the age of 32.
Mobile Juice Therapy
Within the first year of starting my juicing business in 2003 I started to get really sick. My health goals needed more focus. My allergies were getting worse. I peaked at 12 anaphylactic episodes in one year. I was more dependent on my asthma puffers, I was stressed and was getting very bad headaches. I had to do something. I came across a nutritionist and through kinesiology, a strict elimination process, tinctures and zapping she helped heal me. Her name is Hillary Newman. She diagnosed me with a high candida count, a hook worm, limes disease and parasites. I was put on a very strict diet that included very few food groups no fruit, no sugar, no grains. We had to starve the parasites and get rid of the hook worm that was creating breathlessness. Hillary said I would have been born with this – it was probably passed down from my mum.
When I was first diagnosed, I immediately began on herbal treatments – I took various herbal blends that included the usual anti-parasite herbs including:
Black walnuts (Juglans nigra), Wormwood (Artemisia annua), Garlic (Allium sativum),Barberry (Berberis vulgaris)
The philosophy of nutritional healing
The philosophy of nutritional healing says that it takes at least 3 generations to get to the level of toxicity and this made sense to me. I did several ghastly treatments including cysteine tablets with salt and yogurt, wormwood tinctures and lots more. But over a period of 6 weeks I was cured of candida and asthma. My headaches were gone and I no longer wanted to jump out of a moving vehicle. I go and see Hillary most years for a general service – just like my car. Hillary zaps parasites. You hold a copper rod while an electronic frequency travels through the rod. It is pretty freaky but it really works.
I am delighted to say that I am have remained asthma free for the last 13 years. I no longer use any medication. I really think hydration and elimination are key to cure asthma naturally I have two gorgeous boys and after the birth of my second son, I went on a juice fast and decided to enrol in a Diploma in Nutritional Healing. It was important to me to not pass any allergies and asthma on to my boys. They are both allergy free.
Intestinal parasites occupy the intestines. They have an impact on the ability to uptake essential nutrients and minerals. Taking medication also harms the beneficial gut flora. I would highly recommend anyone who is mending themselves from intestinal parasites seek the help of a naturopath who also specialises in parasites and allergies. Arrange to have blood tests to determine levels of things such as iron, active B12, zinc and protein to be sure to treat any deficiencies. My results showed very low iron, very low B12 and low zinc.
Quitting fruit and sugar
Quitting sugar was of major importance in feeling relief from the symptoms of intestinal parasites, and in healing my gut. I had to eliminate all fruit for 6 weeks and also all sugar.
Probiotic rich foods
I increased my intake of homemade probiotic-rich foods and created regular batches of:
• milk kefir
• coconut kefir

Juice recipes perfect for weight loss
A lot of people believe that in order to have great energy levels and a slim stomach, they need to eat nothing but boring and bland foods. However, that's simply not true. While it's true that you might have to cut a few different foods out of your diet if you want to achieve your ideal weight, that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy a rich collection of delicious foods and beverages that constantly leave you craving more.
Juicing is a great way to lose weight and flood your body with nutrient dense fruit and veg. With the right weight loss juice recipes, you can not only give your metabolism the kick start that it needs, but you can also make sure that you have the energy that you need to motivate yourself to spend more time doing daily exercise.
No matter what you're trying to achieve with juicing, most of the time, it will come down to picking the perfect ingredients. The aim is generally to create a juice mix that helps to boost the metabolism, and increase energy levels, while still tasting great.
Many picky eaters find that they struggle to stick to their juicing cleanses, simple because they run out of delicious tastes to try and end up getting bored, or turning back to sugary fruits instead of their vegetable-rich blends. The important thing to remember is that you need to try a vast range of different flavors if you want to enhance your energy and improve your weight loss regime effectively.
Don't just find a single mix that seems to work for you and stick to it for months at a time - that's a quick way to make sure that you end up feeling sick to death of the same flavor. Instead, try multiple different flavors and make sure that you pick different ones for different reasons. For instance, if you have a sweet craving, you might go for something rich in berries, whereas if you're feeling more savory, you might look for a pure green blend.
Though the chances are that you'll find your own perfect recipes as you explore the world of juicing in greater depth, we're going to get you started with some of our favorites. You can use these recipes for inspiration, or build on them as you find new ingredients that help to enhance your stamina and endurance for big workouts.
1:The Lemon and Cucumber Cleanse
Lemon and cucumber are two incredible ingredients for weight loss. Lemon helps to kick start the metabolism, while cucumber rehydrates your system and keeps you feeling energized. These two ingredients mixed together with a splash of mint will help to refresh you in the morning before your workout, and give you the energy you need to plow through your exercise effectively.
All you need for this mix is:
If you don't like the flavor of mint, then feel free to keep it out of your juice entirely. Mix with a glass of water for a more diluted flavor.
When it comes to quick and healthy juicing ideas, this one is fantastic for energy and weight loss. The greens in this mix are perfect for boosting the metabolism and getting every aspect of your body working at top form.
All you need is:
3:Fruity Plum Treat
If you feel like something a little fruitier than your standard vegetable mix, how about a blend that's rich in vitamins, minerals, and natural sweetness too? Make sure that you remove the plum pits before you get started here, and remember that you can leave the skin of the apple on!
Mix everything in your juicer, and then add the squeeze of lemon at the end with a whisk for an added dash of zingy tartness. If you have a powerful high speed blender or Thermomix you can blend all of these ingredients for minutes with cup of water and a few ice cubes.
4:The Tropical Juice
When it comes to blending smoothies, berry recipes are usually the most popular option, because they're packed with flavour, vitamins and anti-oxidants. Perfect for ensuring that you lose weight faster, and maintain plenty of hydration energy.
You will need:
5:Spicy Carrot Boost
You can't enjoy a really great workout if you're feeling terrible. With that in mind, it always makes sense to pay plenty of attention to your immune system when choosing your juicing ingredients. This spicy carrot mix will help to boost your immune system and assist in fighting back against colds and flu, so you can hit the gym on time without any excuses.
Juice all the ingredients and add ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper for an extra kick.
6:The Lime and Carrot Cleanse
Rich in both vitamin C and Beta Carotene, here's yet another carrot-based blend that will cleanse your system, offer unlimited energy, and boost your immunity all with a great taste! You can even juice the peel of the lime if it is organic – it will give some extra zing.
7:The Fitness Favorite
This is a favorite for many fitness enthusiasts, because it's perfect at boosting energy levels while maintaining a sweet and subtle taste. The cucumber in this fruity blend helps to cut through the sweetness of the fruits, while offering extra hydration too!
If you have a powerful blender or Thermomix these ingredients can be blended with a handful of ice and a cup of water. That is a great way to get all that fiber goodness, help you to feel satiated and full.
8:The Winter Workout Blend
A recipe is perfect for winter nights, the winter workout blend will keep you feeling fierce and energetic even when the temperatures start to fall. This is great for weight loss and it helps to detox the body too. Plus, the cinnamon gives you a natural sweetness boost without the worries of excess sugar.
If you have a powerful blender or Thermomix these ingredients can be blended with a handful of ice and a cup of water. If not you can juice the ingredients and then stir in the cinnamon.
9:The Kiwi Rehydrate Blend
If you like slightly more exotic juice flavors, but you still want to make sure that you get all the hydration you need for a workout, then this could be the perfect blend for you. The combination boosts your immune system and enhances weight loss too, since Kiwi is a fantastic source of vitamin C. For extra detoxification, add a dash of lemon!
Remember to peel the kiwis before juicing to make the process easier on your machine
10:The Mean Green Energy Machine
Finally, for energy, fitness, and health-boosting purposes, it doesn't get much better than this incredible green juice candidate. It's low in calories, high in vitamins, and brimming with nutrients to give you a workout that's better than ever.
You will need:
If you have a powerful blender or Thermomix these ingredients can be blended with a handful of ice and a cup of water. Otherwise you can juice the kale, apple and cucumber, then blend with the mint and spinach and ice.
