Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?

I have been juicing and blending fruit and vegetables for at least 15 years now.  I do both actively, but prefer juicing.  I like to drink freshly prepared juices especially when I am fighting a minor illness or when detoxing, which is always since our environment and food supply is full of toxins.  My juicing and smoothie regiment is a critical aspect of my Devirusizing protocol.  But drinking freshly prepared juices is not equal to drinking smoothies.  One is clearly better than the other.  In this post, I will explain the differences as I see it, and have researched it.

When I worked at Whole Food Markets, I regularly asked customers, who were “strictly organic”, to consider a regiment for detoxing, daily, monthly, and quarterly.  Many who go “strictly organic” do not detox, seeming to imply that being “strictly organic” alleviates this need.  This is an illusion, in my opinion.

It is much wiser to eat organic when it matters.  Refer to the 2020 Dirty Dozen & Clean 15 Lists to determine when it matters.  On this list released each spring, the Environmental Working Group (also known as the EWG) publishes a list of fruits and vegetables that experts at the nonprofit say contain elevated levels of pesticides that may be concerning. Now known as the Dirty Dozen list to health experts and in-the-know shoppers, the list has long called conventional farming methods into question, especially as the EWG also publishes a competing list called the Clean Fifteen that highlights produce containing little to no pesticides when grown conventionally.

It is better to eat organic when it matters, and wiser to not assume that there is no need to detox periodically.  For in spite of going organic, we must accept that we are still living in a toxic world on many levels.  We should include detoxing in our health practices.  It is much wiser to complement healthy food choices, with detoxing.  Juicing (and drinking plenty of distilled water) is a great practice for detoxing.  This is a smarter way to Devirusize.

I also meet many people who sing the praises of juicing or blending (smoothies).  Most people choose one over the other.  Most that I’ve met, prefer smoothies over juices.  They state obvious pros for smoothies, and cons for juicing, but leave out many pertinent facts when making this comparison.  This is consistent with how most people practice being “healthy”, without pertinent facts.

I liken drinking fresh juices to drinking medicine, because it goes into the bloodstream within minutes, not requiring much digestion.  Think about drinking a cocktail.  After a few minutes, you feel it, because the alcohol goes into your bloodstream rather quickly. The same happens with juices, but not with smoothies. Continue reading “Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?”

Lard Today, Grease Tomorrow! – Devirusize With Cooking Oils – 6 Ways To Evaluate Good & Bad Oils – Don’t Restock UR Oils Until U Read This!

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens. This is the third installment and it is on the oil that we consume in our diets.

In the first two posts, I presented the importance of the Sun, and Water and how it impacts our health and immunity. In this post, I present the importance of the quality of the oils that we consume.

Oils have gotten a bomb rap from misinformation. Most of the misinformation is intended to boost corporate profits, product unnatural shelf life, and to sustain mass processed food production.

I hope to dispel rumors and urban legends about oils, the first of which is that all oils that we consume are bad. All oils or fats are not bad. We must consume certain in our diet because the body cannot produce them.

I am eager to also dispel that canola oil is not good. It’s trash for the body, due to all the techniques and chemicals used to refine it. Lard is better than canola, of course, when used modestly.

De-Virusize With Water – Who Would A Thunk Dat Water Heals – De-Virusize Immunity With God’s Healing Waters

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens.

In the last, and first post, I presented the importance of the Sun, and how it affects your health and immunity. The Sun can be a double-edged sword. It offers magnificent health benefits but can damage your health if we are not safe and prudent, while in the sun.

In this post, the second of the Devirusize series, I present the importance of water consumption, relative to your health. Everyone knows that drinking water benefits their health. Even I was surprised at all of the health benefits of water. Most of them, I knew about, but some I did not.

As with the Sun, too much water can harm you. I have had an experience, while caring for my elderly mother, with the harmful effects of drinking too much water. But this threat is not as likely or severe as harm from getting too much Sun.

I have written other posts on the health benefits of water. They are listed at the bottom of this post. I used very little material from those articles so that I would find updated information and research.

This post, along with the two prior ones will keep you busy for a while. It covers a lot of ground, therefore I leaned towards providing information in bullets. You may click on the links for greater details contained in research studies, articles, and videos. Kevy
