Juice Recipe for Low Blood Pressure (Hypotension)

July 27th, 2008 by Dave in Juice Recipes

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is pressure that is so low that it causes symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries and veins. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be permanently damaged.

Usually people with low blood pressure also have low blood sugar, so this juice improves low blood sugar as well.  Most patients have kidney problems, and it may help to ingest “black” food such as black sesame, black bean and black sticky rice with sea salt.

Drink 4 to 6 cups of this juice everyday; 2 in the morning, 1 before lunch, 2 in the afternoon, and 1 before dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 beetroot, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 carrot, sectioned
  • 2 tomatoes, sectioned
  • 1/2 cup black grape
  • 1 kiwi, peeled (*)
  • 1/2 cup black date

Other

  • 4 slices ginger
  • 2 teaspoons wolfberry (lycium barbarum)
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame
  • 2 teaspoons flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon licorice powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon cumin powder
  • sea salt

Process through a juicer and serve. It is even better if you use distilled water.

* If you can remove the hair, it is nice to keep the skin.

 


Juice Recipe for Low Blood Sugar (Hypoglycemia)

July 26th, 2008 by Dave in Juice Recipes

Hypoglycemia (Hypoglycaemia in British English) is the medical term for a pathologic state produced by a lower than normal level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Hypoglycemia can produce a variety of symptoms and effects but the principal problems arise from an inadequate supply of glucose as fuel to the brain, resulting in impairment of function (neuroglycopenia). Derangements of function can range from vaguely “feeling bad” to coma and (rarely) permanent brain damage or death. Hypoglycemia can arise from many causes and can occur at any age.

People with low blood sugar are suggested to have multiple meals a day with less amount in each. Drink 4 to 6 cups of this juice everyday and stay away from noodle, bread, cake, dessert, peanut, cashew, milk product and BBQ food.  It is good to eat vegetables, fruit, corn, potato, seaweed, laver and seafood.

Ingredients

  • 1 beetroot, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 carrot, sectioned
  • 1 cucumber, sectioned
  • 1 corn
  • 1 potato, sectioned
  • 1 tomato, sectioned
  • 1/2 cup blueberry
  • 1 lemon, peeled

Other

  • 1/3 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 2 teaspoons bee pollen
  • 1 teaspoon licorice powder
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 4 granulated black pepper
  • some wolfberry (lycium barbarum)

Process through a juicer and serve. It is even better if you use distilled water.


Diabetes Diet

July 18th, 2008 by Dave in Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.  Diabetes mellitus is a disease in which the body either cannot produce enough insulin (type 1, or IDDM), or doesn’t use it properly (type 2, or NIDDM). (The majority of people with diabetes have type 2.) Pregnant women who have never had diabetes before can develop gestational diabetes, which affects about 4 percent of all pregnant women.

The main symptoms are 3 more and 1 less - eat more, drink more, urinate more but lose weight.  Since diabetes patients lose blood sugar through urination, they usually feel thirsty. Besides, the body also starts to consume protein and fat, and they lose weight (emaciation) gradually.  Other symptoms are vision loss, itching and tiredness.

Diabetes is on the rise. In the last 10 years, the number of people with diabetes has increased by 50 percent. This is due, in part, to the increase in overweight and obese American adults and children.  There are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States, or 7.8% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware that they have the disease.  About 95% of Diabetes patients in US are suffering from type II diabetes, and it is the 7th leading cause of death.

 

Diet for Diabetes

Although diabetes is a life-long condition, you can still lead a healthy life and avoid complications. These actions are key: a meal plan to help you eat well, staying active, keeping your blood sugar (glucose) levels as close to normal as possible, and monitoring your blood pressure.

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin.  The human body wants blood glucose (blood sugar) maintained in a very narrow range.  Insulin and glucagon are the hormones which make this happen.   Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.  There are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States, or 7.8% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware that they have the disease.

Juice Recipe for Liver Disease

July 16th, 2008 by Dave in Juice Recipes

Liver disease is a term for a collection of conditions, diseases, and infections that affect the cells, tissues, structures, or functions of the liver.  If the liver becomes inflamed or infected, its ability to perform these functions may be impaired. Liver disease and infections are caused by a variety of conditions including viral infections, bacterial invasion, and chemical or physical changes within the body. The most common cause of liver damage is malnutrition, especially that which occurs with alcoholism.

Drink 4 to 6 cups of this juice everyday and stay away from cigarettes and alcohol.  Artichoke is also good for liver health.

Ingredients

  • 1 beetroot, peeled and sectioned
  • some alfalfa sprout

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 lemon

Other

  • 2 teaspoons of lecithin
  • caraway
  • rosemary
  • parsley

Carrot

July 16th, 2008 by Dave in Healthy Food

carot

The carrot is a root vegetable, usually orange or white, or red-white blend in colour, with a crisp texture when fresh.  It usually grows in temperate Europe, North Africa and West Asia.

The carrot is called the poor man’s ginseng as it contains more than 490 phytochemicals (plant- or fruit-derived chemical compounds).  Beta-carotene is one of the most antioxidants in the carrot, and helps the immune system to target and destroy cancer cells in the body.  It also prevents DNA variation and fat oxidation, and protects cells against free radicals.  There is some evidence that beta-carotene in combination with selenium, vitamin C, and vitamin E might lower high-density lipoprotein 2 (HDL2) cholesterol levels.

Glutathione (GSH), another natural antioxidant, may also be important in blood pressure and glucose homeostasis, consistent with the involvement of free radicals in both essential hypertension and diabetes mellitus.  In humans, Glutathione is found in all tissues and protects against potential damage from wastes and toxins, and it may be effective in preventing accelerated ageing.  Ineffective liver detoxification can lead to the production of excessive free radicals and tissue damage. Glutathione improves liver detoxification by binding to toxins and neutralising their harmful effects. Glutathione may be helpful in the treatment of liver disease, along with many toxic and infectious conditions.

The carrot contains calcium, potassium, vitamin B and C.  Calcium helps vasoconstriction (the narrowing of the blood vessels resulting from contracting of the muscular wall of the vessels).  Potassium promotes regular heartbeat.  Vitamin B improves metabolism.  Vitamin C protects cells against free radicals and strengthens blood vessel walls.

Besides, vitamin A in carrot is important in vision; a deficiency in vitamin A will inhibit the reformation of rhodopsin and lead to night blindness.  It also improves coughing and high blood pressure.  Enough sun exposure everyday helps vitamin A take effect.

Tomato

July 15th, 2008 by Dave in Healthy Food

The tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum, syn. Solanum lycopersicum) is an herbaceous, usually sprawling plant in the Solanaceae or nightshade family, as are its close cousins tobacco, chili peppers, potato, and eggplant.

tomato

Lycopene is the most important antioxidant component in tomato, which can protect human cells and repair damaged cells.  According to a Harvard Medical School study in 1995, diets rich in tomato sauces appear to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.  Another study in Israel discovered that lycopene can inhibit cancer cells from developing in breast, lung and womb.

Fresh tomato contains more than 380 phytochemicals (plant- or fruit-derived chemical compounds).  Glutathione (GSH) helps detoxification and protects cells; lycopene increases natural killer cell activity and reduces the rick of heart diseases, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and bladder cancer.

Beta-carotene and gamma-carotene in tomato are believed to enhance the function of the immune system, prevent vision loss and retinal oxidation.  Vitamin C and E protects cells against free radicals, lowers the risk of heart diseases and slows aging.
