We get organic frozen cherries at Costco, and I have been making smoothies with them.   They’re so addicting! I love having them in the house, they make a great go-to healthy snack. Packed with potassium, antioxidants (the darker the better), and so much more – they’re said to help reduce inflammation and relieve pain from arthritis and gout, decrease the risk of heart disease and some cancers, and even help you get a good night’s sleep!

Ginger is one of the oldest foods used for medicinal purposes. It can be used to treat nausea and vomiting and may improve morning sickness and menstrual cramps. It has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Because of specific enzymes, ginger helps to calm the stomach and aid in digestion.

This smoothie is packed full of vitamins and mineral – a great way to start your day!

Ingredients:

(Makes about 7 cups)
3 cups filtered water
1 cup fresh organic spinach (you won’t even know it’s in there!)
2 cups fresh or frozen cherries, pitted
1, 2-inch piece fresh ginger
garnish with a piece of mint!

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. Garnish and serve immediately!

By reducing the burden of these triggers, Tracy is successfully resolving:

  • Fatigue (anemia's, adrenals, thyroid-related, chronic fatigue syndrome, ME-CFS)
  • Auto Immune Conditions (Hashimoto's, Lupus, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac)
  • Mental Health Conditions (anxiety, depression, OCD, ADD/ADHD)

  • Digestive Disorders (low hydrochloric acid, "leaky gut", Candida Albicans, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth SIBO, IBS, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Migraines and chronic headaches
If you've one or more of the above-mentioned conditions, or have been told you have Lyme or chronic Lyme,  there's a good chance you are in the right place.If you have a history of chronic sore throats, tonsillitis or tonsillectomy, mononucleosis, glandular fever, shingles, and/or cold sores, there's a good chance you are in the right place.
