Spice Up Your Life

by Dreama Vance

It has turned cold and gray and rainy where we are in Colorado. When the weather turns cold, cooling raw foods lose their appeal. The last thing I want in the morning is a cold smoothie!

There is hope, however, for those of us still aspiring to increase our raw food intake. It comes in the form of additions to our fresh juices and at the top of the list is fresh ginger. I rediscovered this spice last year at this time and I have been adding it to my green juices and my carrot-based juices for over a year now.

Using fresh ginger warms you all the way through your body and keeps you warm long after the juice is gone. It has amazing health benefits which you can research yourself.

In the last Juice Cleanse event with Jason Vale, we started each day with a Ginger Shot. Just before you start to juice your regular juice, juice half an apple and half an inch (1 cm+) of fresh ginger root. You can pour this into a shot glass and drink it in one swallow, but I like to just drink mine normally. As you get used to ginger, you can add more. If you are timid, you can start out with less ginger. This is a great wake-up in the morning. It is particularly good to replace caffeine. It also gets you started until your normal juice is ready!

Here is another one of Jason Vale’s recipes from a previous cleanse, Lemon/Ginger Zinger. Juice 2 carrots, 2 sweet apples, 1-inch (2.5 cm) of lemon (with peel if organic,) and a quarter-inch of fresh ginger root. I like to add about an inch of ginger. It’s delicious.

My last recipe is a green juice and an adaptation of Lou Corona’s Lemon Ginger Blast. Juice 2 sweet apples (such as Fuji or Gala,) 4 sticks of celery, 1 cucumber, some greens such as Swiss chard, kale, or spinach, 1 lemon (with peel if organic,) 1 inch of ginger root, 1 inch of jalapeno pepper. This is spicy hot and delicious. If you aren’t accustomed to heat, start with less ginger and jalapeno. I like the fresh jalapeno pepper much better than dry cayenne powder. This juice is a power house. Once you have the basic recipe down, then you can add and subtract to it or swap out your greens. You can add dandelion, fennel, and mint or cilantro or parsley. Each ingredient has its own healing properties.

You may never do a complete cleanse and you may never do a juice fast or a water fast. However, if you juice everyday, with your own fresh juice or fresh juice from a juice bar, you will start on a path of good health.

Green juices don’t have to taste yucky. Two sweet apples make just about any green juice palatable. For hardier fare, carrot juice combinations work well.

If you start your day with fresh juice, when the stomach is empty, the juice is quickly absorbed right into your system. You will begin to alkalize and hydrate your body. You will begin to nourish your body with easily accessible nutrients. It is one of the best ways to take charge of your health.

Jay Kordich, a Master of Juice Therapy recommends 32 ounces (equal to one liter or one US quart) of fresh juice a day. I like to get mine done first thing in the morning so I am finished for the day; otherwise, one excuse after another gets in the way. You will be surprised at how nourishing, filling, and long-lasting those 32 ounces of juice are.

If you haven’t made daily juicing one of your steps on the journey of good health, I hope you will be inspired to start!

Reinventing Wellness

by Owen K Waters and Dreama Vance

The New Reality is being built today by people just like you and me. We are making decisions about how to live our lives in ways that will guarantee us the joy and fulfillment which is our natural birthright. In order to do that, we have to do something that our generation has been doing for decades – improve our world by reinventing the way we live our lives.

We have always enjoyed watching how my generation has reinvented our own world many times over. To begin with, in the 1960s, we ‘Baby Boomers’ created new music, replacing crooners like Perry Como and Dean Martin with rebel-rousing rock ‘n’ roll! We flocked to gadgets like transistor radios and later filled our homes with labor-saving appliances. Soon, we went on to develop a fitness ethic, popularized world travel, and made eating out a way of life.

Then, at work, we busied ourselves in search of excellence. Later, came a roller coaster of financial crises, prompting many of us to redefine the way we view retirement. No problem; after all, that’s what we do – reinvent life to suit our youthening attitude.

To us, age seventy is the new fifty. We’re not interested in passing the time playing golf or shuffleboard. We’re interested in finding purpose in life and spending our days in meaningful pursuits.

Step by step, we are figuring out how to serve the world in our own way and create our own financial support at the same time. This is what we could have done – maybe should have done – all along; follow our deepest passion and find a way to serve others through that kind of work. That way our days are filled with constant meaning and the joy that springs from knowing that we are actively working to improve the world.

However, behind the bravado of our newfound self-empowerment, there lurks a very real fear. The greatest fear of our generation today is that, one day, we will end up in the ‘twilight zone’ experience which descended upon many of our parents before they died: Horrific challenges like cancer, debilitating strokes, open heart surgery, and failing organs, all compounded by the mental fog of a deepening and desperate state of dementia. Our parents said they never wanted to end up like that, but, sadly… many of them did!

What does it take to reinvent our reality to live in vibrant wellness? Fortunately for us, solutions are emerging. Answers are appearing.

We Are Activating The Shift!

One of the ways to do this is to enter the world of sacred healing oils. This is a shift in consciousness from the old medical/pharmaceutical model of suppressing symptoms to one of activating vital life force and the innate consciousness within your own body to promote actual healing.

It is a shift from waiting to fix things after disease has manifested to a focus on staying healthy by keeping your body in balance. It offers hope where there was despair because disease can actually shift and your body can actually heal itself, if given the tools it needs.

Reinventing wellness requires us to shift to a proactive awareness.

These specific sacred healing oils are one of the most powerful tools available to us today. Join us in experiencing and learning about these sacred oils. Start now so that you can then share with others and begin to play your part in this wonderful shift.
