HEALING HERBS: Tips for a strong immune system

Social Share

Two weeks ago, security officer Mr Herbert alerted me that my vehicle had a flat tyre. Immediately I ran to Mr Beckles, a teacher but also a top Barbadian Bushy Park bike champion, because I knew he keeps abreast with all the latest technology.

Indeed, he went to his vehicle and armed himself with a portable mechanical air pump and hurried to my rescue. Later, security officer Mr Bovell and another teacher Mr Bascombe contentedly assisted with labour or just support for me and my flat tyre. Indeed, they updated me about prevailing car jacks, wheel tools and safety precautions which reminded me of the car lectures I receive from my husband. 

When I was driving home, I recognised the necessity of developing good relationships with workmates, friends and family. It reinforces my belief that men generally enjoy positive holistic relationships with females and that they are really overjoyed to assist us if we ask. This week I am dedicating this article specifically to men by sharing some tips about juicing to assist them in improving stamina and the extra boost needed to keep the immune system in tip-top shape.

Last week I told you about my Greenis juicer which I received as a gift to professionally juice my silent doctors.

On the website, these are some of the listed health benefits of juicing.

• Promote weight loss. In one study, adults who drank at least eight ounces of vegetable juice as part of a diet lost four pounds over 12 weeks, while those who followed the same diet but did not drink the juice lost only one pound. The vegetable juice drinkers also significantly increased their intake of vitamin C and potassium, while decreasing their overall carbohydrate intake.

• Boost your immune system by supercharging it with concentrated phytochemicals. Raw juice also contains biophotonic light energy, which can help revitalise your body.

• Increase your energy. When your body has an abundance of the nutrients it needs, and your pH is optimally balanced, you feel energised. Since it can be utilised by your body immediately, those who juice report feeling the “kick” of energy almost instantly.

• Support your brain health. People who drank juices (fruit and vegetable) more than three times per week, compared to less than once a week, were 76 per cent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, according to the Kame Project.

Finally, juice these silent doctors for “heating up romance” – one small watermelon (no seeds), five five-fingers, 12 strawberries, seven carrots and 20 mulberries.

I going now and drink my juice and listen to Edwin Yearwood’s Pump Me Up.
