I have been drinking so many green smoothies. Thanks love this blog Reply Cancel. Love hemp, for all the reason you said!! Yes, I drink it cold, though in the winter I use hot coffee to warm it up! I love your idea to make a vegan cheese with the hemp hearts. I like to throw them in my green smoothies, on top of salads, and oatmeal. I use them in raw desserts to sub for oats.
One of the only habits I can stick to…
I have eaten some raw garlic from time to time. I also drink alot of water. I take digestive enzyme and probotic, L-Glutamine. I also eat a few prunes every day because of constipation. This has really helped me. We cut out gluten, grains, dairy, egg whites, processed foods, fast foods, sodas, threw out the microwave that was back in I know what yu are thinking…. You would b surprised! There are substitutes for some of those things. Within days his bleeding stopped and the pain on elimination went away!
Our bodies are like a machine! We tend to get into the idea that one therapy or one smoothie or one food or suppkement will do it! It just will not! I thought those with hashimotos or autoimmune conditions should avoid dairy. That is what a functional medicine dr told me. I notice though that the protein Dr Axe sells contains dairy.
Same Down Under as by law milk sold is to be pasteurized. If only we took greater care of our cows. Try four tablespoons of coconut oil a day. The diet is on the internet. I take the Coconut oil and try to stick to stewed meats and cooked greens, or soups. I lost 11 lbs in 2 weeks and am a diabetic.
My blood glucose also got much better. Here is my morning every other morning smoothie. Is this smoothie with all the ingredients i. People who are allergic to bees should not take Bee Pollen. Make sure to drink 8 ozs.
As a young mom, that was the first book on health I ever bought. An older woman I used to know used Vitamin C for her serious reactions to almost everything. Lobelia extract has the same benefit..
Because I am casein allergic, I really need to look for great products that are milk free. I have the chocolate. It is non GMO, organic, raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, it does contain coconut. But do a search for it and check out the label! Loaded with raw sprouted foods and raw probiotics and enzymes. You can use one scoop for a snack or two for a meal. Dr Axe, I am no expert, and would love your opinion on this product as well as any other fabulous ones for non milk people.
Add this to almond milk or your choice and drop in one or two small drops of peppermint essential oil and it just perfects it! I have been casein intolerant all my life. Makes sense to me. So if I eat homemade custard that has been baked-no problem!
Casein is hard to break down but this is a trick that I enjoy doing every once in a while!??? Whoa there, I guess I really got off track on the smoothie powder for a milk free product. The above recipe looks like one I really want to try soon. I am now growing my own little tiny garden with kale and collards that I throw into my smoothies. I am copying this recipe and buying ginger and adding in my chia seeds ASAP. Anxious to try it.
I have leaky gut and am allergic to avacados. I find most of these recipes contain avacados. Is there any replacement? Kale is the most herbicide ridden vegetable so organic kale is a must when using concentrated amounts…. Kale should should be blanched not drunk or eaten raw. I would guess those having trouble with greens are also in need of iodine. Iodine is essential for the thyroid. Am well past retirement and have very few wrinkles.
It is the greens………find a way to add them to your diet. I have IBS and low thyroid. Do you eat iodized salt. You may need iodine to help the thyroid. Many years ago a law was passed to put iodine in salt because people had no other source for it. You can get iodine as a liquid. Definitely work with a Homeopathic Doctor to establish right amount to take. Also black walnut is high in iodine. One can take 1 tspn or more of the black walnut 3 times daily.
And apply as a compress to the throat, where the body will absorb the organic iodine directly. Plus, learn a relaxtion technique. High emotional upsets leads to increase buring up of the iodine in the body which in turn causes thyroid problems.
Try a swig of organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar. You may need to balance your Hydrochloric Acid content in your stomach. Especially after 40 when you stop producing enough enzymes to break down your foods. Trader Joes carries a Sublingual B you dissolve under the tongue. B vitamins are your nerve food — we need em! I agree t hat some of these greens with bananas in a smoothie can cause bloat serious bowl problems abd stomach upsets.
What d o you do I have celiac and now I think ibs any ideas Tired of trying different things that make me worse. I am true blue to my diet still sick. I understand what you are going through.
Please do not add raw greens into smoothies. With IBS and Celiac disease I would make a bone broth and sip on it during the day, even for breakfast, it is that healing.
You will notice a difference. Do not eat any raw greens during this time, just take it easy and only eat boiled greens like broccoli. Give your tummy a break, and slowly add raw greens, like in a salad, only after you feel you can tolerate it. Also, if you do eat bananas make sure they are very ripe with brown spots as they are much easier to digest. Hope this helps you, I really feel for you. Also, if you eat meat make sure and boil it only. Do not grill it or bake in the oven.
It is easier on your stomach and do this in the beginning phases of healing your gut. This along with bone broth and boiling veggies is very healing. Make sure your meat is grass-fed only. I make a lot of soups and it is incredibly healing. I personally do not eat red meat, but if you do it needs to be boiled not baked.
Later on when your gut can tolerate it you can grill and bake it. Same with chicken, and even fish for some people. In my opinion, healing smoothies are for those that already have completed beginning phase of GAPS diet.
Try sipping bone broth for a few days, give your body a rest. Slowly add back in your normal foods you can tolerate. Axe has a ton of information on this site.
It has helped me, and also my mother-in-law who has struggled her whole life with gut problems. This particular recipe is truly for maintenance, not those beginning to heal their gut. Greens are added later and I agree they are a must at every meal. I eat them way more than anything else, but you must begin to heal your gut first. Store in mason jars and freeze for soups. By the way, I only use greens in powder form , like Dr.
Axe sells, in my smoothies. I feel I do so much better that way than using Kale or Spinach raw. Not everyone with thyroid issues should take iodine. I had an abdominal hernia repaired! Dr said only fat made the golf ball sized lump so just sewed it shut! By then i have a very bad back ache and it feels like its tearing at my hip area.
I do have kind of a large colan and am 72 years old! Have worked hard my life, not ever sitting much but love being a dooer! I will try the greens smoothies, coconut oil trying to feel like my tummy and colan are not inflamed!
I would cleanse my colon. Bone broth, magnesium oxide, high dose vitamin C, senna, stewed prunes, anything to get yourself going. Maybe ice on tie sore stomach will help. Hope you are doing better. Slippery elm tea and mashmallow root are great for intestinal health. My husband was just given Levothyroxin 25 mcg and not told what it was for. I read somewhere that it was for overactive thyrol. What can he naturally take instead of this. Ask your pharmacist what that is. I believe it is a synthetic thyroid med.
His blood panel probably came up low for Thyroid. If he gets heart palpatations from that med there is a natural alternative called Armour. I recently began taking a Thyroid support vitamin which has corrected my Thyroid embalance.
I believe Dr Axe makes one. My stomach cannot currently tolerate bananas or avocados. Any subs you can recommend for these in a smoothie? I myself take it. Too much high fiber will generally put me in a tail-spin.
Essential oils are amazing and I use them all the time, but someone on here mentioned to possibly use them in ear. You can place drops on a cotton ball and place the cotton ball in ear and they will get it just the same.
Also you can rub them on the bone behind the ear and they get in that way as well. You can rub oils around the eye and underneath if you need to ever use them for that. Just wanted to let you know. There is so much wrong with this that I dont even know where to start: Greger and his nutritionfacts.

What is the name of the diet please? Axe Why bee pollen? I would like to know the recipes your mom used to beat cancer. My food is boring. The smoothie is a 4 serving recipe, I was wondering how long the smoothie leftovers will last in the fridge? Hello Savannah, you should be able to keep this recipe in the fridge up to two days and a bit longer in the freezer.
Can the left overs be frozen and used the next day? Hi Dr Axe, in your webinar 2 days ago, you said that eating raw vegetables was very bad for leaky gut. And that we should only consume cooked vegetables. Which theory is correct please?
Many thanks , Diana. Overnite I woke up with Guttate Psoriasis. My legs are ugly red and scaly most of the time. At first I thought I had an insect bite or a reaction to something.
I eat fresh most of the time. Carbs get in the way especially that I am a cook and baker. My age is I feel my legs are weakening and recently bought a cane. My Dermotologist gave me the news of Guttate Psoriasis. I stay away from fragrance creams. Praying this all goes away. To my observation I think I have a Leaky gut. You can refrigerate this smoothie for about two days, but I personally think the taste is better when made fresh. I would recommend cutting the recipe in half to avoid keeping it in the fridge for too long.
Is juicing ok to heal a leaky gut? I thought steamed veggies were better than raw. Such as cabbage I thought I should avoid sweet fruit and honey also. I have a stressed gut type. A friend recommends cooking an organic chicken in a pressure cooker for 4 or so hours to receive the same nutritive broth with the same release of collagen, aminos and minerals? How is the best way to make homemade organic bone broth?
Nutritional yeast is not only a great source of amino acids, but also a complete protein source. It contains all the essential amino acids that the body can not produce on its own, along with all the amino acids that the body can produce on its own. Fiber is another helpful nutrient that slows down the absorption of natural sugars from our food into the bloodstream. In the meantime, it also sweeps out harmful fats and cholesterol, along with toxins in our bloodstream that keep our hearts healthy too.
Not too shabby, right? You should be sure to still eat your vegetables too, of course, since we need between a minimum of grams a day to stay healthy. Nutritional yeast is a good source of several minerals that also contribute to healthy blood sugar, including magnesium and zinc. This powerhouse nutrient is involved in almost different reactions in the body and is crucial to maintaining good heart, metabolic, mental, bone, and digestive health.
Some of the best sources include: Nutritional yeast contains 24 milligrams of magnesium which is decent for such a small serving, but zinc is the real mineral star found in nutritional yeast. Zinc optimizes the metabolic performance of carbohydrates in the body to use them for fuel. This is incredibly important for not only your blood sugar, but also your overall energy, immune health, and weight. Nutritional yeast contains 20 percent of your daily zinc needs, boasting 3 milligrams in just 2 tablespoons.
B vitamins not only help our bodies use carbohydrates for energy, but they also help prevent blood sugar swings as a result. One of the most well-known benefits of nutritional yeast is its wealthy stores of B vitamins. Two tablespoons of nutritional yeast contains: This should come as no surprise, since all soil-based yeasts versus air-born yeasts are rich sources of natural B vitamins since they are grown on B-rich bacteria within the soil such as Vitamin B Please be warned, however, you should not look to obtain your Vitamin B12 from nutritional yeast alone.
Finally, nutritional yeast contains no added sugars and is a very low carbohydrate food. It contains 5 grams of carbs, 4 of which are fiber which has no negative impact on blood sugar levels and leaves the body undigested. Low glycemic foods are important to manage blood sugar since the body can only use so much of one nutrient at any given time. This is essentially what leads to blood highs and lows, though skipping meals, and eating unhealthy foods can also cause these issues.
To best manage your blood sugar, eat a variety of whole food, fiber-rich, plant-based foods and leave processed foods out of the equation as much as possible. Nutritional yeast makes an excellent addition to this type of diet, and should never been seen as just a simple condiment. Be sure when you purchase nutritional yeast that you purchase a high-quality brand to get the most nutrients since some off-brand names may use a blend of yeasts instead of pure nutritional yeast.
All of these will provide the benefits listed above and are all easy to find in stores and online.
