balance the pH level




 
Our modern lifestyle commonly including a diet rich in meats and fat; stress and pollution, our body tends to become acidic. Also as our body ages, it becomes less efficient to retain water, sodium and potassium which also contribute it to be more acidic, thus allowing diseases to occur. Being one of the most alkaline foods chlorella is known to have the ability to balance the pH level and therefore to neutralize the body from a less acidic to a slightly alkaline form. 





Through hundreds of clinical studies and medical observations, the healing properties and health benefits of chlorella have been reported to treat the following: 

Allergies, anemia, asthma, cold, cold sores, flu, bad breath, body odors, acne and skin problems, burns, wound healing, pyorrhea (bleeding of the gums and loose teeth), pneumonia, P.M.S, herpes simplex, stress, eczema, jet lag, fibrous cysts, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome and Epstein-Barr virus syndrome, mononucleosis, yeast Candida problems, seizures, hypoglycemia, hypertension, hormone imbalance, withdrawals from drug addiction, alcohol hangover prevention, detoxification, liver toxicity, bowel and colon toxicity, constipation, cholesterol, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, pancreatitis, peptic ulcers, duodenal ulcers, gastritis (9), diabetes, heart disease, cancer, anti-viral, gout, arthritis, obesity, sciatica, sinusitis and nasal congestion, emphysema, AIDS, degenerative illnesses associated with aging, Alzheimer's, attention deficit disorder, growth and development of children.

Our modern lifestyle commonly including a diet rich in meats and fat; stress and pollution, our body tends to become acidic. Also as our body ages, it becomes less efficient to retain water, sodium and potassium which also contribute it to be more acidic, thus allowing diseases to occur. Being one of the most alkaline foods chlorella is known to have the ability to balance the pH level and therefore to neutralize the body from a less acidic to a slightly alkaline form. 





Through hundreds of clinical studies and medical observations, the healing properties and health benefits of chlorella have been reported to treat the following: 

CHLORELLA is a single-celled fresh water grown algae and may contain more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant in the world. It’s a whole food and may be extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, polysaccharides and a host of other beneficial compounds.

Chlorella may; support the function of the brain and liver, improve digestion and elimination, protect against radiation, relieve inflammation, enhance the immune system, and overall accelerate the healing process within the body. Chlorella may also absorb toxins from the intestines, and combined with its ability to favorably alter the bacterial flora of the bowels, it may help relieve chronic constipation and eliminate intestinal gas. Chlorella may contain vitamins C and E, an array of B vitamins, amino acids, folic acid, beta- carotene, lysine, and iodine and may be extremely rich in iron and calcium

Chlorella may be capable of removing alcohol and heavy metals from the liver, specifically mercury (which is widely present in the form of dental amalgam fillings) and may aid the body in breaking down persistent hydrocarbon toxins, certain pesticides and herbicides, cadmium, arsenic, lead, DDT, and PCBs. Chlorella may be effective in reducing the symptoms of numerous types of cancers, diabetes, low blood sugar, arthritis, AIDS, Candida, pancreatitis, liver cirrhosis, hepatitis, peptic ulcers, viral and bacterial infections, anemia, and multiple sclerosis.
Since Chlorella is a detoxifying whole food, not a concentrate or extract, a person may eat as much as they desire without it becoming potentially toxic. However it is important to introduce it gradually into your diet in order to allow the body to adapt to its deeply regenerative effects, especially on the digestive and intestinal systems.
Chlorella is best taken before a meal (or with probiotics) to aid in digestion as it can cause probiotics to multiply at four times the normal rate. Also recommended to be taken before exercise to aid in detoxification.

Low-fat plain Kefir has many benefits. It's probiotic, which means that it's filled with 'good' bacteria, also known as 'live cultures' that can help relieve digestive problems.

Kefir is also a high-protein, low fat food, maintaining a healthy diet.

How to Make It 

Kefir is a thick, microbial-rich cultured milk that can be extremely beneficial in re-balancing inner body ecology.  
It is a tart yogurt-like
fermented food that contains friendly bacteria and yeasts that work together to provide natural probiotic properties.
It has a long history, originating in the Caucasus mountain regions, between Turkey and Russia, where it was revered as a sacred food. 

Turkish meaning "to feel good."

"Kefir has tremendous healing power. With its laxative effect it helps clean the colon.  Its beneficial bacteria and yeast help control the pathogenic yeast and repopulate the colon with a favorable, new life force." 
Kefir is traditionally made from cow or goat milk but, as an alternative to dairy, it can also be made with coconut meat/water or nut milk blends. 


What Is It?

Benefits of Kefir Yogurt Drink

It is one of the best superfood drinks for re-establishing friendly flora in the intestinal tract. This "medicinal drink" coats the stomach lining and contains tryptophan, an amino acid that works with calcium and magnesium to relax the nerves.
The body converts tryptophan into serotonin, an important chemical called a neurotransmitter; balanced serotonin levels can cure depression and constipation, induce sleep and prohibit waking during the night."

Kefir is, of course, great for anyone with
candida and is often a necessary addition to the diet for complete colon health and restoration of the digestive tract.

Nutritional Value:
  • acts as a natural probiotic
  • balances inner body ecology
  • provides high quality enzymes
  • supplies B vitamins and amino acids
  • helps with proper digestion of foods
  • a source of good fats
  • contains an abundance of calcium and magnesium
  • gives essential friendly flora, like lactobacillus
  • builds the immune system


what-is-kefir-drink
 
 
To ferment the coconut milk and/or nut milk, you need a kefir culture starter, which comes in the form of a powder or in the form of a grain. The grain is not really a "grain", but a rubbery, cauliflower-like mass that continues to grow the more you use it. 
 
This is the traditional culture used to ferment kefir, but today many people use the starter powder out of convenience. The culture (or grain) is a blend of friendly yeast and bacteria that form a mix of lipids, sugars and proteins, which gel up into a thick, yogurt-like liquid consistency. 
As it ferments, it develops a complex matrix of many different micro-organisms than can greatly improve the
health of the colon. 
The "tara" grains of the Tibetan peoples are a cousin to this cultured grain, which has provided them with a similar fermented drink for eons.

As legends tell, "kee-fir" grains are said to have been passed down by Allah and delivered to the prophet Mohammed, who held them in his possession, sharing only with family.
But one day, it mistakenly ended up in the hands of a Russian acquaintance who then took it back to her country as a cherished drink that still exists today throughout that region.
                 The grain starter is made up of a
polysaccharide known as kefiran, which reproduces itself during the process of fermentationThis allows for a continuous supply of grains, much like that of the kombucha mushroom and koji (used to ferment miso). Kefiran has also been shown to decrease blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Milk Kefir Grains

 These grain cultures produce a thick liquid, yogurt-like drink that is traditionally made from dairy milk, but as we mentioned can also be made from nuts, seeds and coconut meat/water. 

If you do make kefir from milk, we suggest using raw cow or goats milk.  To make this type of kefir, however, you will need to heat it initially to 92 degrees as there are enzymes in the "raw" dairy that may compete with the kefir culture. 

Water Kefir Grains

These grains can be used with sugar water, juice or coconut water.  Many people are now into making simple water kefirs that do not involve dairy or heavier nut based milks.  These are most ideal for those with candida who wish to reduce the amount of these foods in their diet.
Water kefir is made in the same way that you make milk kefirs and requires the same amount of time to ferment.

It is easy to make at home right on your kitchen counter. It is a simple 10-24 hour process that ferments the lactose content into a sour, tangy beverage.
Traditionally "kee-fir" is made with dairy milk, as we mentioned, but we like to use raw vegan substitutes that work just as well. 

Quite often this fermented drink is combined with fruit and sweeteners (like yogurt) to make a sweet, tasty thick drink.

We like to add some of the top 10 superfoods, like bee pollen and goji berries, maybe a little blue green algae, along with any of the natural sweeteners, like stevia or raw honey.

Using Kefir Grains or Starter

You don't necessarily need to use kefir grain culture because you can also buy starter packets that come in powdered form. 
We personally prefer the whole grains as opposed to the powder. 
We like to watch them grow and proliferate, knowing you can keep using them over and over again!

Kefir Benefits
















Kefir is More than just beneficial bacteria, Kefir contains minerals and essential amino acids that help your body with its natural healing powers and maintenance functions. 

 Kefir contains 42 different strains of friendly bacteria. The complete proteins in liquid Kefir are partially digested and therefore more easily utilized by the body.   Kefir  has an abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes.
Some of the more prominent of these are calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin K, A, C and D. 

Kefir is a potent source of calcium (approx. 300 mg. per cup) that your body can absorb because unsweetened cultured Kefir is acid neutral which is not true of pasteurized milk, as the pasteurization process turns the alkaline raw milk to highly acidic. 

Kefir has tons more beneficial bacteria than yogurt. While 500 ml of yogurt contains close to 1.5 trillion organisms, the same amount of Kefir contains a mind-numbing 5 trillion beneficial and friendly bacteria.

Tryptophan

One of the essential amino acids abundant in Kefir, tryptophan is well-known for its relaxing effect on the nervous system.  It also offers loads of calcium and magnesium which are both critical for a healthy nervous system.

Rich in the B Vitamins

Kefir is an excellent source of Vitamin B7 (biotin), which aids the body's absorption of other B vitamins, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) B3 (niacin), B6 (Pyridoxal phosphate), B9 (folic acid), and B12 (cobalamin).

B vitamins intake range from regulation of the normal function of the kidneys, liver and central nervous system.

Kefir may also alleviate anxiety.  Studies have shown that those put on a Kefir diet have consistently had less anxiety. 


Kefir's ample supply of phosphorus – the second most abundant mineral in our bodies helps utilize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for cell growth, maintenance and energy.


Kefir also reduces cholesterol – Studies have shown that milk cultured for 24 hours with live kefir grains has been found to have cholesterol reduced up to 63% and milk that was stored to 48 hours had up to 84%.


Kefir kills harmful bacteria:  Scientists tested the Kefir in the Caucasus Mountains for any type of harmful bacteria.  Within 24 hours the E. Coli was destroyed by Kefir whey’s beneficial bacteria. 



Kefir has also demonstrated the ability to kill H. pylori infections when bacteria alone could not.  This is because when Kefir is consumed as a drink, it creates a healthy mucous lining in the colon, which acts as a good medium to support the growth of beneficial bowel flora which helps to prevent parasitic infections and cancer as well as constipation. 

This means Kefir is beneficial in preventing many gastrointestinal disorders, which exudes bacterial inhibitory factors that prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. Various medical reports have shown that Kefir has been helpful in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema, allergies, migraines, gout, rheumatic arthritic conditions, candidiasis and colitis. 

Make Your Own Kefir. Kefir is a very ancient remedy for ill-health and it is economical when you make your own.  Producing drinkable Kefir from Kefir grains is simple and easy.


  As a matter of fact, the store-bought kefir is made so differently than the homemade kind, that it isn’t real kefir at all, but a weak derivative.  Commercial Kefir is made from either a freeze dried powdered form of the culture, which means it has considerably less healing power. 

Studies have shown that commercial kefir did nothing to lower bad cholesterol, while the real kefir made using live kefir grains lowered bad cholesterol levels significantly.

BOŽIJI DAR .... K O P R I V A


Jedna od najlekovitijih biljaka na planeti je biljka koju najčešće uništavamo!



Jeste li ikada razmišljali zašto je kopriva obložena žarućim iglicama koje peku na dodir sve i svakoga?
Te žaruće iglice služe koprivi kao zaštita od nametnika, životinjica i svega što bi ju moglo oštetiti, zato što je kopriva stvorena isključivo za čovjeka. Da nema žarećeg efekta, kopriva bi od davnina bila iskorijenjena, a ovako je dar čovjeku. No, ljudi je ipak iskorijenjuju, ljute se na nju, čupaju, ne žele, ne znajući da je njena ljekovitost nevjerojatna!
Upravo ta kopriva za koju nitko ne zna zašto smeta po našim dvorištima jedna od najkorisnijih ljekovitih biljaka.
Svi dijelovi koprive – stabljika, lišće, korijen i cvijet imaju ljekovita svojstva.
Švedski znanstvenik Abbe Kuenzle tvrdi, da bi kopriva odavno nestala sa lica zemlje, ako ne bi imala žalce. Životinje i insekti bi ju odavno pojeli.

“Jednom sam dao savjet majci sedmero djece, koja je od svog zadnjeg poroda patila od glavobolje i ekcema, da pije čaj od koprive. U kratkom vremenu riješila se ekcema i glavobolje. Pošto ekcem ima unutarnji razlog, treba ga liječiti uzimajući trave koje čiste krv”, govori Kuenzle i dodaje:
   
Kopriva je najbolja biljka za čišćenje i poboljšanje krvi. Pozitivno djeluje na gušteraču i pomaže snižavanju šećera u krvi. Kopriva liječi upale urinarnog trakta i stimulira rad crijeva. Zbog toga koprivu preporučuju kao dio proljetnog čišćenja organizma.

U biljnoj medicini čaj od koprive se koristi za bolesti jetre i žući, za poremećaje sna, kod tumora slezene, za grčeve u stomaku, čireve, bolesti pluća itd. Čaj se pije četiri tjedna. Nemojte čaj zakuhati, jer će to uništiti dragocjene sastojke. Možete piti jednu čašu čaja od koprive svaki dan tijekom cijele godine, radi prevencije. Čaj od koprive također je blagotvoran kod virusnih i bakterijskih infekcija. Ako imate manjak željeza u organizmu i osjećate se umorno i beskorisno, kopriva je to što Vam treba!

Kopriva sadrži puno željeza, i uspješno se koristi kod anemije. Nakon određenog vremena, opet ćete se osjećati puni energije i zdravlja.

Jednom mi je došla mlada žena, koja je izgledala anemično. Osim nedostatka željeza, imala je probleme sa želucem, žučnim mjehurom i patila je od glavobolje. Preporučio sam joj čaj od koprive. Nakon nekog vremena opet sam ju sreo, a ona mi je s oduševljenjem rekla, kako joj je brzo pomogao čaj od koprive. Cijela se njezina obitelj okrenula prirodnom načinu liječenja.”

Čaj od koprive je dijuretik i zbog toga se može koristiti kod vodene bolesti. Izgrađuje krv i zbog toga je blagotvoran kod mnogih bolesti krvi. U kombinaciji s drugim ljekovitim biljem, kopriva se može uspješno koristiti za liječenje leukemije. Ljudi, koji pate od alergije, uključujući peludnu groznicu, također bi trebali piti čaj od koprive.

Kopriva je jedna od najrasprostranjenijih ljekovitih biljaka našeg prostora. Gotovo da raste svuda, a cvjeta od proljeća pa sve do jeseni. Ljekovita je, jestiva i nadasve korisna za opće stanje organizma. Kopriva se još u Grčkoj koristila za masažu protiv reumatskih bolova. Kopriva utječe na izmjenu tvari i u organizmu potiče izlučivanje probavnih sokova te olakšava metabolizam masti. Sadrži puno klorofila, minerala (kalcija, kalija, željeza i fosfora) i vitamina (C i A). Flavonoidi koje sadrži pozitivno djeluju na naš organizam, ekstrakt korijena koristi se protiv opadanja kose, a zbog količine željeza ima pozitivan učinak na stvaranje crvenih krvnih zrnaca.

U poljoprivredi je dobra ne samo kao insekticid već i kao biljno hranjivo.
Zato se osvrnite oko sebe, naberite listove koprive i krenite koprivom prema zdravlju. Evo recepata…

Kopriva se preporučuje za liječenje

Čisti krv,
 obnavlja crvena krvna zrnca,
 čisti tijelo od nepoželjnih i štetnih tvari;
 liječi teške trbušne tegobe,
 menstruacijske i druge ženske tegobe,
 bolesti mokraćnih organa,
 slabo mokrenje,
 teška bubrežna oboljenja,
 upalu mjehura,
 čir na želucu, crijevima i plućima,
 čisti pluća od sluzi,
 liječi teško disanje i astmu;
 jača cjelokupni živčani sustav,
 liječi nesanicu, a 
rabi se i za zagrijavanje hladnih nogu.

ČAJ: 3 velike žlice koprive prelijemo s 1 litrom vrele vode, poklopimo i ostavimo 5 minuta; procijedimo i tijekom dana možemo popiti. Možemo ga blago i zasladiti, a ako ga podgrijavamo, moramo paziti da ga ne pregrijemo, jer tada gubi svoju ljekovitost.

Lijek protiv bolesti bubrega U jednakim se dijelovima izmiješa kopriva, broćika i zlatnica: jedna velika žlica ove mješavine stavi se u 1/2 litre vrele vode; nakon 5-10 minuta procijedi se i pije tijekom dana vrlo toplo, u laganim gutljajima.
To je najbolji lijek protiv bolesti bubrega, posebno kada se bubrezi kvrče i suše.
