This is a Natural Cleansing Technique: Banana Alfalfa Drink can help combat constipation. I have included gluten free options in the recipe below.
Most arthritics suffer congestion in the bowels of some sort. Every degenerative disease, in fact, begins in the bowel. Even if you are not aware of having ‘constipation’, chances are you will have congested bowels, known as constipation. If you have cancer, or arthritis, or some other disease, then the bowels will most certainly need plenty of attention, to reverse the condition. Pockets of waste material can gather in the intestines, and these build up over time, causing auto-intoxication of the body. This can cause uncomfortable reactions, with bloating, tiredness, irritability and depression, but the end result will be a degenerative disease if the situation is allowed to continue.
So – here is a dietary remedy to cure constipation. It will also help you to lose weight if it is taken instead of other foods for breakfast several times a week. Of course, you will need to be prudent with your food choices for the rest of the day. AND, if you have a health problem and are taking medication of any sort, then you should ask your doctor or naturopath or homeopath about whether this banana smoothie drink is right for you.
The foods in this smoothie will help to make the body more alkaline – always a help in avoiding disease of any kind – It will provide that essential bulk, or roughage, which will help to cleanse those clogged intestines, which is another disease-deterrent.
You can substitute this drink for your normal breakfast several days in the week. It is nutritionally sound, with raw egg, wheat germ, almonds, sesame seeds, dates and banana, which provide many B vitamins, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, magnesium, calcium, and other nutrients. Note: While raw egg white is not recommended because it depletes the body of Biotin, egg white can be safely taken raw without depleting any vitamins, if it is beaten up with other foods. Raw egg yolk is highly nutritious, and is given by some therapists such as Walter Last and Dr max Gerson, for treating serious illness such as cancer, arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
Recipe For Cleansing Nourishing Banana Smoothie Breakfast
One large ripe banana.
5 dried apricots OR 5 dates
One cup full cream milk, or soy milk
1 raw egg
2 tablespoons wheat bran: Omit this if you are gluten sensitive and use 2 tablespoons dessicated coconut instead.
1 tablespoon wheatgerm: Omit this if you are gluten sensitive and use a tablespoon of sunflower seeds instead.
1 tablespoon psyllium husks
1 teaspoon brewer’s yeast: Omit this if you are gluten sensitive
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/2 cup of alfalfa sprouts
Into the blender bowl put the sesame seeds and almonds. Blend these up first of all. Then add the banana, milk, egg, and all other ingredients.
Blend altogether for two minutes. Drink in place of breakfast. This is a good breakfast replacement for people who are inclined to rush out the door without eating breakfast. Take a cup before you leave, and take the rest to work with you.
