I love juicing!  I have written about it not too long ago and I thank everyone for stoping by and reading the article.  It makes me happy that so many of you are leaving the path of processed foods.  Homemade fruit and vegetable juices do not only improve your overall health and assists in weight loss but is also extremely therapeutic when it comes to dealing with a whole list of illnesses.

Dealing with arthritis for example….at least a pint of grapefruit juice (please not store-bought!  Already processed juice has no benefit at all). Separately to the grapefruit juice, also prepare a half of pint of carrot/spinach juice, and at least half a pint of carrot/sellerie juice. This means a total of two pints daily, which usually leads to tangible results within a reasonable period. It has also been useful to drink half a pint of carrots/turnips/cucumber juice.

Drink these juice combos throughout the day at intervals of one or two hours between each mix. Keep in mind that mixing the different juice types are important since the chemical composition of each individual juice achieve different results. It is important to know the correct mixtures to battle arthritis.  Heat, pills and electricity deal with the pain only and do not combat the cause of the sickness.

The grapefruit juice for example, contains organic salicylic acid which aids in dissolving the unnatural calcium build-up around the joints. The turnips and wintergreen also contain salicylic acid but its job here is to assist in the cleansing and regenerating of the joints.

The dissolving of the unnatural calcium is only the first step of improving the illness. Now it needs to be eliminated form the body and this is where the carrot/sellerie juice comes into play. The carrot/spinach combo is to rebuild and renew and brings all back into balance.

Going through this process can be very painful, some days will be more so than others. As you know, in natural medicine it is often so that first the symptoms get worse before improvement can be seen and noticed. Sticking with it is the key. It also helps to understand the psychological reason for arthritis, which is long suppressed anger and frustration.  Trying to avoid these factors as much as possible will also speed up the healing process.

I can only speak for myself, this has been my journey, my experiences and I would like to share them.  We’ve been conditioned to swallow a pill for everything that ails us, lulled into not taking the horrid side effects seriously.  There are alternatives and I for one, believe strongly that nature holds all answers.   I use the theraputical juice recipes from Dr. Norman Walker, who was an expert on nutrition and lived to be 115 years old.

Fluorite

The fluorescence property within this stone has given it its name and is categorized to the element Wind.  The colors vary from clear, white, red, black but most commonly known in green.  It has been refered to as the  vacuum cleaner of the psyche and clears away any astral hanger-ons’ who like to make mischief to your surrounding. Fluorite is known to protect teeth from decay and ache.  It is used to ease inflammation, arthritis, helps against flu and supports the thyroid.

Each color specifies  special properties.  The yellow fluorite magnifies the mental powers and strengthens intellectual abilities while the black is the master in astral cleansing.  The green sibling cleanses and heals the heart chakra and brings balance when the mind speaks differently than the heart. Any of these can be used in conjunction with other stones to enhance the goal you are trying to achieve.  This is a great stone for school and college kids, for it aids in memorization and retaining information and settles worried thoughts and confusion

Lightworkers and healers like this stone, it lets us access to the higher energy field levels.  It helps us to activate both hemispheres of the brain and let them work together.
