* 2 juicing recipes for eczema posted below.
You are what you eat. Which means I am a junior bacon cheeseburger, chili cheese fry, chocolate dairy queen blizzard, and sonic strawberry slush. Yes, all in the same day. Don’t judge me, sometimes I’m weak. When you’re are really hungry, you sometimes do stupid things. Just ask the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
And it definitely affected me. I got NOTHING done. Not for lack of trying – I started doing about 6 different things, but didn’t finish a single one. I forgot how much my diet affects my attention span and focus. Eewww…look at that, somebody liked my new facebook pictures…
The funny thing is, is that I *just* taught a lesson on health and fitness yesterday. Go figure…
I guess I just have to recommit myself and go forward from here, right?
Well, by writing this post (with a stomachache that could put the Very Hungry Caterpillar to shame), I am recommitting myself, because once again, I find how crucial our diet is in every aspect of our lives – even in things like eczema.
Not that I’ve ever suffered from eczema, but if I had…
Off topic again, sorry.
Needless to say, I have repented and recommitted myself to living healthily – with juicing as just one aspect.
And compiled a few juicing recipes for eczema for anyone who suffers that kind of infirmity. Is it considered an infirmity? Or just a condition…?
Juicing Recipes for Eczema
Xzema Juicing Recipe
1 medium tomatoes
2 medium carrots
WARNING: Watercress is very peppery, so if you are new to juicing, this may not be the juice for you! However, watercress is well known for it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and is frequently prescribed by herbalists to naturally alleviate eczema. The tomatoes, carrots, and cucumber help to soften the flavor of the watercress, but duly help skin health with their high vitamin content: eating high levels of vitamin A and C is a must for fighting eczema. This recipe definitely goes in the group of juicing recipes for eczema.
Currant Skin Care Juicing Recipe
1 bunch spinach
small chunk ginger
Black currants are very popular in Europe and Australia, but basically unknown in the United States (all do to some silly logging companies and apparently too much governmental control on agriculture). This lack of knowledge is a detriment to our health – blackcurrants are excellent skin healers. In fact, eczema found on breastfed babies was greatly reduced after their mothers began ingesting black currant seed oil. Spinach, being naturally high in vitamins A, C, and E, is a natural addition to this juice, as is ginger, with it’s great anti-inflammatory properties. And the cucumber is just a nice addition to any juice – it creates a lot of juice with a very mild flavor. Add some water and serve on the rocks (shaken, not stirred…)
