|A bit of sunshine on a rainy day|
The food gurus have told us that purple reigns our diets for 2017.So if purple is the new green
and tangerine tango is passé,this is just what the doctor ordered. A beetroot apple and celery smoothie is the new Green Genie.
Eighteen months ago I was diagnosed with high anxiety ( hypertension ) which was causing high blood pressure and was put on Zolnor. A recent consultation with my doctor informed me that I would be on this medication for life. I dislike taking drugs and try to avoid them as much as I can, so I decided to try natural ways and diet therapy to lower my blood pressure. Apart from cutting salty foods out of my diet (chance would be a fine thing ).Potatoes without salt? ( have a laugh). I have been drinking fresh beetroot, apple and celery juice almost every day and my blood pressure has dropped.Beetroot, celery and apple juice is now a regular part of my routine.Don´t get me wrong, I am not suggesting that you throw away your pills … oh no!! But just try this therapy and then over time you may find the need to take pills for hypertension may become less or like in my case, be under good control the natural way and compliment the medication. Since this juice combo is all natural, no harm really in drinking it for general health. The real hypertension lowering ingredients are beets and celery, but the apple adds sweetness to it and makes it refreshing and tasty. Even if you don’t have hypertension this juice is loaded with antioxidants and raw enzymes that will rejuvenate and recharge your system. It ‘s a blood purifying juice that cleanses the system.
