Get the incredible healing benefits of aloe vera in this sweet grape slushy. Refreshing and delicious, this slushy makes a wonderful light breakfast or snack. If you suffer with constipation, you might find the combination of grapes and aloe vera in this drink bring you welcome relief!
Grapes contain high amounts of powerful antioxidants known as bioflavonoids, resveratrol, and anthocyanins. These phytochemicals are anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-aging, and anti-cancerous and provide protection against anemia, degenerative nerve diseases, heart disease, viral and fungal infections, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disorders, and all forms of cancer. Grapes can also help provide relief from asthma, migraines, constipation, gastritis, chronic acidosis, indigestion, kidney disorders, fatigue, and vision problems.
Fresh aloe leaf gel binds onto toxic debris in the intestinal tract and carries it out of the colon during elimination. Aloe also reduces poisons and toxins in the intestinal tract so that they don’t travel up to the liver. It expels and diminishes ammonia inside the intestinal tract that otherwise seeps into the liver when food is putrefying due to low hydrochloric acid and bile production.
Aloe also works wonders for assimilation, circulation, and elimination. It is known to purify the blood, reduce inflammation, ease arthritis pain, prevent kidney stones, lower high cholesterol, prevent Candida, boost physical endurance, benefit cardiovascular health, and protect the body from oxidative stress. Aloe soothes ulcers, hemorrhoids, gastritis, diverticulitis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive disorders. Aloe provides recovery from fatigue and aids in muscle function as well as optimal utilization of several vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. It’s alkaline nature, helps to soothe acidosis and alkalinize the whole body.
Aloe Grape Slushy
2"-4" fresh aloe leaf gel
2 cups frozen seedless black or purple grapes
splash of water, if needed to blend
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

While inflammation has been pinpointed as a part of persistent illness, what has yet to be discovered by medical research is the real story about why this inflammation is present in the first place. So often the viral explosion in our modern world is to blame. Various strains and varieties (most undiscovered by medical research and science) of the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, HHV-6, and other herpetic viruses, along with bacteria and parasites, are behind a great many people’s suffering. To get rid of this widespread inflammation and the other debilitating symptoms of chronic illness, we have to get rid of the pathogens. Enter cat’s claw, the herb also known by the Spanish name uña de gato. Cat’s claw is one of the most powerful resources for reversing the epidemic of chronic and mystery illness in the 21st century.
Powerful Ally For Any Illness & Symptom
Cat’s claw is a tropical woody vine whose bark has been harvested for hundreds of years for medicinal purposes. Cat’s claw can aid in alleviating almost any symptom, from neurological to digestive. While cat’s claw has gotten some attention for its healing properties, it is as yet unknown to science that the herb contains bioactive pharma-compounds that supersede synthetic pharmaceuticals. All too often, antibiotics are employed against certain illnesses such as Lyme disease. The world would be a different place if cat’s claw took the place of antibiotics; the rate of illness would reduce, and recovery would quicken, regardless of the diagnosis for a given illness. Of course, pharmaceutical antibiotics have their place and purpose. Cat’s claw is unique, though, in that pathogens such as bacteria cannot become resistant to it, as they sometimes can to antibiotics. For more than three decades, I’ve espoused the miraculous healing benefits of cat’s claw because it is such an essential support for so many conditions and symptoms.
Adaptogenic Weapon Against Viruses, Bacteria & Parasites
Parasites such as Babesia and bacteria such as Bartonella cannot withstand the wrath of cat’s claw. The herb eliminates these and other bugs without the so-called Herxheimer die-off reaction so common with antibiotics, because the bioactive pharma-compounds in the herb regulate the destruction of pathogens so that it’s at a level the individual person can tolerate. Cat’s claw is also incredible at fighting viruses such as Epstein-Barr virus (almost everyone has at least one of the over 60 varieties of EBV–find out more in Medical Medium Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr. Eventually medical research will discover a group of antiviral adaptogens, and scientists will realize that cat’s claw is at the top of that list. The herb is the ultimate secret weapon for battling PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections), ALS, strep throat, MS, mystery aches and pains, and more.
Cat’s claw is also remarkable for its ability to rid the body of the infamous strep, which is frequently misdiagnosed as yeast or Candida. Millions of women go on antibiotics and antifungals that only end up making problems worse, because the Streptococcus bacteria that causes urinary tract infections is so often antibiotic-resistant. Cat’s claw lowers strep without issue, making it the ultimate UTI-alleviating herb and a fundamental tool of our time. Strep is also the true cause of of many other symptoms and conditions, including cystic acne, bacterial vaginosis, SIBO, sinus pain and congestion, otitis media, intestinal disorders, sore throats, styes, and more. Cat’s Claw is also a fantastic herb to knock down E.coli, C. difficile and other bacteria.
Brain & Liver Support
The glycosides, proanthocyanidins and beta sitosterol found in cat’s claw exert a beneficial effect on memory, making it an excellent supplement for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive/memory disorders. It also assists the liver’s personalized immune system, giving it a chance to recoup its strength and restore itself for the next battle. It helps the liver stabilize its environment.
Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Cancer, & Anti-Tumor
Most cancers and tumors are caused by viruses such as EBV. Cat’s claw knocks down viruses while strengthening the immune system, making it a powerful support for cancer and tumors. To understand more about the true cause of cancers, you can read the chapter on Liver Cancer in Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease. It’s also a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Note that if you’re pregnant or trying to conceive, keep cat’s claw out of your medicinal regimen.
If you have any of the following conditions, try bringing cat’s claw into your life:
Every type of cancer; Lyme disease; all Lyme disease cofactors (including Borrelia, Bartonella, Babesia, and mycoplasma); small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO); amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS); laryngitis; PANDAS; strep throat; multiple sclerosis (MS); dyskinesia; rheumatoid arthritis (RA); urinary tract infections (UTIs); kidney infections; lymphoma (including non-Hodgkin’s); Chlamydia pneumoniae; yeast infections; migraines; irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); ulcers; Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mono- nucleosis; shingles; HHV-6; HHV-7; HHV-8; HHV-9; the undiscovered HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12; nodules; herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1); herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2); acne; pelvic inflammatory disease (PID); vitiligo; sleep disorders; transient ischemic attack (TIA); plantar fasciitis; psoriatic arthritis; Morton’s neuroma.
If you have any of the following symptoms, try bringing cat’s claw into your life:
Inflammation, aches and pains, ringing or buzzing in the ears, Candida overgrowth, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, gastritis, tingles and numbness, neurological heart palpitations, headaches, brain fog, parasitical and bacterial infection, twitches, Bell’s palsy, frozen shoulder, spasms, tics, weakness of the limbs, burning sensations in or on the body, digestive disturbances, pins and needles, tremors, swallowing issues, slurred speech, nervousness, seizures, rashes, restless leg syndrome, dizziness, balance issues, moving body pain, muscle cramping, muscle tightness, muscle weakness, neck pain, joint pain, jaw pain, inflammation.
When someone is quick to judge or play the blame game, the first step is for that person to be aware that she or he is doing it. The next step is to take cat’s claw. The herb is extremely helpful for reducing a sense of urgency, so that rather than automatically reacting to a situation, you can take some time to think, process, and address what has arisen with a level head.
People are constantly on the search for the Holy Grail of health. As every new trend hits, we hope that this is the answer, the protection we’ve been waiting for, the discovery that will change our lives. Meanwhile, a miracle medicinal—cat’s claw—sits on the shelf of the health food store, and we pass it by. Or we add it to our herbal tool kit and forget to use it. It comes from the tropical jungle, so you’d think its exotic origin would pique more interest. Yet it’s within reach now, attainable, and so we figure it’s too accessible to be the real thing. If we gave cat’s claw a real chance, we would see that it really is a magical healer.
Throughout life, we overlook similar saving graces. Cat’s claw teaches us to reevaluate them. Have you ever underestimated a person, resource, object, or opportunity, and then realized in hindsight that you’d passed up the gift of a lifetime? What’s out there right now that could help if you let it? Cat’s claw teaches us that sometimes what we seek is within reach. We just need to have the presence of mind to recognize those everyday miracles that have made their way to us, so we can seize them.

* When choosing a cat’s claw tincture, make sure it’s not in an alcohol base. Alcohol cancels out the beneficial effects of the herb.
* Take a bottle of cat’s claw tincture with you as part of your emergency kit when you’re traveling. Over the course of your trip, when you can remember, take small doses of the tincture. It’s a wonderful tool to protect your immunity and guard against malaria and bacterial infections.
* Regardless of what health issue you use cat’s claw to address, take the tea or tincture in the evening, when its healing properties work most efficiently.

Watermelon and lime are a match made in heaven in this frozen Italian treat. It’s vibrant and fun to eat making it perfect for kids and adults. The added bonus is the healing properties of the watermelon that makes up the base of this recipe.
“Melons: A powerful liver cleansing food because of melon’s ability to hydrate blood all on its own and help alleviate your liver’s overburdened state. The combination of melon’s unique living water content with its nutrient content allows the heart to work less; melons thin out dirty, toxic, fat-filled blood, allowing the heart to not overwork itself in pumping blood. This reduces some of the liver’s responsibility to protect the heart, which frees up the liver to focus on other important chemical functions that are needed in the moment. Melons also provide the liver with hydration to hold on to for when you’re in a drought, living a lifestyle of chronic dehydration. They flush toxins out of the intestinal tract with ease and rebuild hydrochloric acid reserves in the stomach. And because bile is not needed to break down and digest melon, the liver can work on restoring its bile tank.” – excerpt from Liver Rescue.
2 lbs (6-7 cups) chopped watermelon
1/4 cups lime juice
1/2 tbsp lime zest
1/4 cup maple syrup or raw honey - optional
Add the watermelon, lime juice, lime zest and maple syrup/honey to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a shallow glass or ceramic pan. Freeze for at least 2 hours, then start breaking up the ice crystals with a fork every 30 minutes until you get a crunchy, slushy-like texture.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer until needed.

Whether you like to use tortillas to make wraps, tacos, pizzas, quesadillas, sandwiches, nachos or any other favorite meal, a good tortilla recipe is the foundation. But a tortilla recipe without corn or wheat can be hard to find. In this recipe, the humble potato is the star along with cassava and chickpea flour. The result is tasty and flexible tortillas you can make again and again.
Potatoes aren’t only versatile, they’re also high in potassium and rich in vitamin B6, as well as a fantastic source of amino acids, especially lysine in its bioactive form. Lysine is a powerful weapon against cancers, liver disease, inflammation, and the viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles that are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease, and more. Potatoes will be your allies if you’re looking to fight any chronic illness—to fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves and digestive tract, and reverse Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, or peptic ulcers.
2-3 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced (yields 1 cups mashed)
1 1/2 cup cassava flour, more if needed
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp - 1/4 cup warm water, if needed
1 tsp dried herbs (oregano, thyme, basil, rosemary)
Place the potatoes in steamer. Cover with lid and steam for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool completely.
Place the potatoes in a food processor and blend until smooth. The mixture will be quite sticky. Measure out 1 cup of potato mash and leave the rest for another recipe.
Add the cup of mash to a large bowl with the cassava flour, chickpea flour, sea salt and herbs. Using a potato masher, mash until you get a crumbly mixture. Set the potato masher aside and working with your hands, add water a tablespoon at a time while kneading. Depending on the moisture content of the flours and potato mash you may not need to add any water at all.
Knead the dough until it is smooth and uniform, about 3-5 minutes. The dough must not be sticky at all - if it is, add more cassava flour. When ready, cut the dough into 4 even pieces.
Roll out each piece between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/8 inch thick. Keep the remaining pieces in plastic wrap so that they don’t dry out. Remove the top sheet and place the lid of a saucepan (7 inches in diameter) on top. Circle around the lid with a knife to create a tortilla shape. Remove the excess dough.
Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Flip the tortilla onto the pan and carefully remove the parchment paper right away. If you leave it for too long the paper might stick to the dough.
Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Repeat with rest of the dough. Best kept at room temperature in an air-tight container.
Makes 4-5 medium-sized tortillas

If you’ve struggled with your weight, you may have been told it’s because you have a slow metabolism so you gain unwanted weight easily. Or perhaps you’ve struggled to keep weight on and been told it’s because your metabolism is “too fast”. None of this is true. When it comes to weight issues, you might be surprised to learn that metabolism actually isn’t the problem. Placing the blame on metabolism has distracted us from understanding what’s really going on.
I know it might sound contrary to everything you’ve been told, but read on to learn the true cause of weight issues. This is advanced healing information that will put your health and healing back in your hands.
First, let’s begin with what metabolism is in the first place. The discovery of metabolism is simply the finding that we consume food, which provides energy that makes our bodies run and keeps us alive. That’s it. That process is metabolism. Blaming faulty metabolism for weight issues is incorrect and disempowering. There are deeper reasons people struggle with weight and it’s these deeper reasons that are behind why one person can eat healthy and exercise and still gain weight and someone else can eat processed food for most meals and stay thin.
Your Best Ally for Healthy Weight: Your Liver
The true cause of what’s deemed “slow metabolism” is actually a sluggish, stagnant, toxic liver. I describe how this develops in Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease. Once you understand what’s really causing weight problems, and liver problems, you’ll see that the focus on metabolism is misinformation.
When someone struggles with excess weight, it’s a great burden, physically and emotionally. Sadly, weight is judged and viewed in such a negative way in this world. People with extra weight may not be taken seriously. They may be viewed by others as lazy or incapable of taking care of themselves and their families. They may even get made fun of. All of this is heartbreaking and wrong. Your weight has nothing to do with your soul. It has nothing to do with who you are as a person. But struggles with weight certainly do have an impact on quality of life, and that’s why it’s important to get to the root cause and the real answers.
In Liver Rescue, I refer to the troublemakers that lead to a sluggish and toxic liver (which eventually leads to weight issues), including:
* Viruses and bacteria, such as Epstein-Barr virus, herpes, streptococcus and the dozens of varieties within different pathogenic families. In addition to causing damage on their own, viruses and bacteria create even more harm when they feed on their favorite foods such as heavy metals; toxins; and foods like eggs, gluten and dairy. Medical research and science are not yet aware that viruses feed at all, or what they feed on. You can read all about this topic in Liver Rescue and Thyroid Healing, along with a list of which foods to avoid for your health and to avoid feeding pathogens inside your body. The pathogens’ eating and waste processes create harmful byproducts and debris that sit inside your liver or elsewhere in your body. When people have a positive or elevated inflammatory marker, C-Reactive Protein (CRP) level, antinuclear antibody (ANA) test, homocysteine level or MTHFR mutation test, it’s caused by these viral byproducts, although you don’t have to test positive for any of these to have viral debris inside your body. Almost everyone today is living with viruses they are unaware of.
* Toxic heavy metals, such as copper, mercury, aluminum, lead, nickel, cadmium, barium and arsenic take up residence in the liver and throughout the body and cause or contribute to all kinds of health conditions and symptoms.
* Synthetic chemicals, including pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides; conventional cleaning products and detergents; colognes, perfumes, scented candles and air fresheners; and petrochemicals, gasoline fumes, solvents and plastics. These toxins bog down the liver further.
* Toxic hormones, such as adrenaline, which is released when we’re under stress, and which is extremely corrosive to our bodies and livers adds further burden to the liver.
These are just some of the factors that lead to a sluggish liver, which in turn leads to the eventual weight issues discussed.
The Path to Healing
Celery juice is one of your healing tools for correcting weight issues. Celery is an herb (not a vegetable) that when juiced and consumed on an empty stomach every morning disarms (aim fo 16 ounces or more) and flushes out toxins. It also disperses fat cells that attach to and surround toxins. I describe how this miraculous herbal tonic works in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide and exactly how to consume it to receive its many healing benefits. Celery juice powerfully cleans, strengthens and revives the liver.
When someone is experiencing unwanted weight gain it means their liver has been collecting and storing an abundance of fat cells. And that happens because the liver has been beaten down and burdened by toxins and pathogens (often combined with a diet that’s too high in fat, as almost everybody is eating too much fat, even though they don’t realize it). Once the liver is maxed out with fat cells, weight starts to show up on the body.
If you feel like you’re always battling a pound or two, or you’re always in the gym but you can’t knock off the extra weight, it’s likely because your liver is burdened, filled with fat, toxins and viruses. Your liver—not metabolism—is responsible for weight issues throughout the body. Thankfully, with the information provided here you can support your liver so it can heal and weight can regulate.
People who deal with weight issues are also often dealing with lymphatic issues. That’s because when the liver gets overloaded and sluggish, then the blood and lymphatic system get clogged up too. Fortunately, celery juice not only cleans up the liver, but also the blood, the lymphatic system and every other part of the body and brain.
The healing chemical compounds in celery juice drop down into the digestive system, absorb into the intestinal tract walls, go through the hepatic portal vein and then enter the liver. The celery juice cleans and heals along this pathway until it arrives at the liver like a medicinal infusion, helping the liver and the entire body to function and heal. Unknown to research and science, the liver performs more than 2,000 chemical functions. See Liver Rescue to learn more about this incredible organ and how to care for it. The liver’s role in our health is paramount—and severely misunderstood and under-appreciated. In truth, a large part of how the liver works is a complete mystery to medical research and science, and certainly how an overburdened liver is responsible for mystery weight problems.
Remember, your liver is a nesting place for the troublemakers I mentioned earlier and those listed in Liver Rescue. And celery juice, as I describe in Medical Medium Celery Juice, contains a subgroup of sodium I call “sodium cluster salts” that strip down the outer membrane of viral cells, breaking them down and flushing them out of the body. Those cluster salts also bind onto viral debris, helping the body flush those out as well. Celery juice plays a similar role when it comes to toxic heavy metals and chemicals. Celery juice’s compounds flow through the bloodstream, disarming the destructive charge of toxins and moving them out of the body. These toxins and poisons in the body trigger unseen allergic reactions, which trigger the adrenals and can lead to higher heart rate, especially in people who experience unwelcome mystery weight loss. They also slow the liver’s ability to perform its critical functions.
Another property of celery juice is it breaks down and helps dissolve fat cells that are stored in the liver, allowing the fat cells to be urinated out and eliminated from the body. This is an important distinction to make: fat cells are broken down and eliminated and that’s how weight loss occurs. It does not occur from fat being “burned” like the metabolism theory implies, which you now know is incorrect. Celery juice is also loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that feed and strengthen the liver. It’s a medicinal elixir that allows your liver—and the rest of your body and brain—to function at its best. As the celery juice cleans up the liver, excess weight will begin to shed too.
If you’re someone who is underweight or deals with unwanted weight loss, you’ll experience the benefits from celery juice too. Unwanted, mystery weight loss is usually the result of a chronic, low-grade viral infection, such as EBV, inside the liver, setting off the body’s alarm system, essentially creating an allergic reaction that prompts the adrenals to release consistently high levels of adrenaline. Basically, the adrenaline acts as an amphetamine. Often, mystery weight loss doesn’t last forever, because eventually the liver becomes so tired, sluggish, and exhausted from fielding mass amounts of adrenaline that the situation flips, and people start gaining weight instead, even if it’s ten years later. The beauty of celery juice is that it’s a great balancer, bringing life back to your liver and helping your body to return to a healthy weight for you.
If you’re experiencing weight issues of any kind (or if you simply want to take preventative action for your overall health), consider these tips:
* Drink 16 ounces (or more) of pure celery juice daily on an empty stomach every morning. Remember this is not a meal replacement. Rather, it’s a medicinal herbal tonic. You can eat breakfast 30 minutes after you’ve finished your celery juice.
* Drink the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie daily to remove the toxic heavy metal load in your body.
* Lower your fat and protein intake to give your liver a break from the job of constantly processing them. If you eat a plant based diet, this means lowering your oils, nuts and seeds.
* Avoid eggs; gluten; and milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, kefir and any other dairy products because these foods feed the pathogens that contribute to a sluggish liver.
* Try the Liver Rescue 3:6:9 Cleanse in Liver Rescue and incorporate the Liver Rescue Mornings and other healing guidance in the book as much as possible.
Your life is precious. These are your years, your months, your days. I am here to give you answers to your symptoms and conditions, including weight issues, and the information on how to heal so you can start taking back control of your life and your health. Now you know that weight issues aren’t because of your metabolism or genetics or even aging. They’re because of a sick liver that needs your attention. You have the power to care for your liver and achieve a healthy weight. You deserve to heal.

After suffering with breast implant illness for twelve years, Julie was looking for a way to heal from the damage the implants had done even after she had them removed. Watch Julie share how she healed with Medical Medium information. Thank you Julie for sharing your healing journey and for giving hope and encouragement to many!
There’s an epidemic of women with breast implants who are sick or symptomatic. This is not only because of the implants themselves but also any underlying conditions a woman might have. Whether you are considering getting implants, have them now, or have had them removed, this information is critical. Listen to this Medical Medium Radio Show to learn the truth:
To learn more in-depth information about the troublemakers that cause the symptoms associated with breast implants, and how to finally heal, check out the NY Times best-selling book Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease by Anthony William - http://amzn.to/2DjQjE9.

Symptoms and conditions caused by streptococcus bacteria are varied and numerous. They include sinus pain and congestion, otitis media, UTIs, intestinal disorders, SIBO, sore throats, styes, cystic acne, bacterial vaginosis, strep throat, and more. Strep can cause a multitude of seemingly unrelated issues that all stem from one or more of the multiple strains, many of which are undiscovered.
Fortunately, there’s many healing foods, herbs and supplements that can help combat strep. Here I am sharing 12 healing foods you can include. For herbs and supplements that help fight strep (including dosages), you can read Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease.
Celery Juice is a powerful herbal extraction that immediately starts killing off strep. Celery juice is best consumed plain on an empty stomach every morning. Drink 16 ounces or more daily. Find out exactly how celery juice helps and how to drink it in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide.
Bananas have antibacterial properties that are incredible for collecting strep and pulling it out of the system. Enjoy them as a snack, in fruit bowls, smoothies, juices, or gluten-free oatmeal, or blend frozen bananas into ice cream.
Berries are a powerhouse food that are great for helping to defeat strep anywhere in the body. Enjoy them as a snack, in fruit bowls, smoothies, juices, sauces, or gluten-free oatmeal. Top with raw honey for the best prebiotic there is. Wild berries, especially wild blueberries, are the most healing type of berries. If you can pick berries fresh, they will be coated in what I call “elevated biotics” that can get into the digestive tract and become a weapon against strep and conditions it causes such as SIBO and acid reflux. If you can’t find frozen or fresh wild berries, try Wild Blueberry Powder.
Spinach is a fantastic antibacterial. Spinach helps create a more alkaline stomach composition by raising beneficial hydrochloric acid levels, which in turn kills off unproductive bacteria such as strep that create the bad acids responsible for GERD and other forms of acid reflux. It’s important to eat spinach raw, not cooked, to receive its healing benefits. Enjoy it on salads, in Medical Medium Raw Spinach Soup (find the recipe on the blog), dips, dressings, smoothies, and juices.
Onion helps fight strep in the bladder, reproductive system, intestinal tract, and colon. It can also help in healing styes, which are most often caused by strep bacteria. Enjoy it raw as often as possible. Enjoy it on salads or steamed vegetables and in sauces, dressings, or dips. Use onion in soups, broths, curries, stir fries, and more.
Garlic has very strong antibacterial properties. Contrary to some mistaken theories, garlic does not kill productive bacteria in the intestinal tract. It only kills unproductive bacteria, which runs on a positive frequency. Enjoy it raw as often as possible. Two (or more) raw cloves of garlic per day is ideal for fighting strep. Enjoy it on salads or steamed vegetables and in sauces, dressings, and dips. Or simply eat a raw garlic clove crushed in raw honey or some banana or avocado.
Ginger has incredible immune-boosting and germ-fighting abilities and helps provide protection and relief from bacterial conditions caused by strep, plus E.coli and staph. Ginger can be juiced fresh with other ingredients; or add raw ginger root to smoothies, dressings, soups, applesauce, or salads. You can also cook with fresh ginger, making soups, broths, teas, stir fries, and more.
Turmeric has antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that fight against strep bacteria. Enjoy just like fresh ginger.
Cayenne pepper is high in vitamin C and beta-carotene, making it a weapon against strep bacteria. It also helps the body to create hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which makes the stomach a more hostile environment for bacteria. Sprinkle it in salsa, guacamole and other dips, enjoy on salads or vegetable dishes, or even put a pinch of it in smoothies or juices.
Raw honey contains phytochemicals that help destroy all the different strep bacteria varieties. It’s delicious on top of fruit, in salad dressings, in lemon or lime water or added to smoothies and fruit ice creams.
Oregano is a powerful antiseptic and antibacterial that works to kill off streptococcus. Try adding fresh chopped oregano to your salads, soups, and pasta sauce, or steep it in water overnight and drink the next day. It can also be made into a hot herbal tea. Oregano oil can also be found as a tincture, extract, or capsule form online or at your local health food store.
Thyme is another excellent antibacterial herb. It is especially helpful as a purifying herb for the digestive tract where it kills off strep bacteria, making it a key herb for anyone with SIBO, IBS, bloating, and other gut conditions. Enjoy it in the same way as oregano.

Watch Leslie share how she healed from eczema, atopic dermatitis, autoimmune disease, food allergies, seasonal allergies, asthma, and more. Thank you Leslie for sharing your inspiring healing story!
Eczema and psoriasis are commonly believed to be genetic and/or autoimmune disorders, or simply an allergic reaction. But these skin conditions, along with others like rosacea, vitiligo and more, are none of these. Eczema and psoriasis are not genetic, nor are the autoimmune conditions where the body is attacking itself.
Eczema and psoriasis are really a sign of a liver under a great deal of duress, specifically from a virus, such as the Epstein-Barr virus and the heavy metals copper and/or mercury. When a virus in the liver feeds on this copper and/or mercury, internally produced dermatoxins are eliminated by the virus. These dermatoxins back up into the lymphatic system when the liver is sluggish and overwhelmed and head to the skin. As the dermatoxins surface through the skin, over a hundred different varieties of eczema and psoriasis can result.
Fortunately, there are answers here for you and you can heal your eczema and psoriasis. You can experience smooth, pain-free, and itch-free skin once again.

A competitive athlete, Megan had symptoms and conditions since early childhood that were quietly building until she hit rock bottom in 2017. She was rapidly losing her life. She had spent over a decade searching for answers and was diagnosed with Lyme disease, colitis, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), SIBO, anxiety, IBS, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), adrenal fatigue, hypothyroid, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis (IC), gastroparesis, gastritis, trigeminal neuralgia, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), severe insomnia, depression, and more. By implementing Medical Medium information, she made more progress in 18 months than she had over the previous 10 years. Thank you Megan for sharing your story and inspiring so many!
If you or someone you love have been diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), there is likely a lot of confusion surrounding your doctor visits. They may have told you that POTS is an “autoimmune disease” and your body is attacking itself. It’s very important that you know this is not true. Your body never attacks itself. It is always trying to heal. The truth is that POTS is a result of multiple factors affecting the body that together are labeled as POTS. These factors include a viral infection, typically Epstein-Barr virus, along with heavy metal toxicity. These two factors together worsen symptoms because viruses feed off heavy metals and become stronger, producing viral neurotoxins that also inflame the nerves. Very often there’s also adrenal health issues due to the viruses affecting the liver which has in turn impacted the adrenals.
To learn more about how to heal POTS, SIBO, Lyme disease and more check out the NY Times best-selling book Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease by Anthony William.

Watch Sarah share how celery juice has changed her life. For a year and a half, she was so sick with histoplasmosis that she almost lost her life. After being on anti-fungals for many months, the histoplasmosis was gone but she was still very sick. Her CT scans results looked like she had lymphoma. She was coughing up blood clots. She had daily fevers and her throat had such severe esophagitis that she couldn’t even swallow water without excruciating pain. Then she came across celery juice. Sarah says that the day she started drinking celery juice is the day she got her life back. No more fevers, no more throat pain, no more coughing up blood clots or throwing up. Thank you Sarah for sharing your healing journey and giving hope and inspiration to many.
Acid reflux, while it is in fact related to acids, is not due to gastric acids or hydrochloric acid from the stomach. If you or someone you know is experiencing acid reflux regularly, the acid is either coming from a bacteria or toxins in the liver and even the small intestinal tract, though the most common cause is bacterial. Medical communities have no idea that this is what is really behind this unpleasant condition. There are cases of acid reflux where there is an actual kink in the intestines or a hernia. However, if the cause is not a visible one, it is directly related to a weakened liver and bacterial growth. This bacteria produces an acid that mimics gastric acid and fools the physician into thinking that is what it is, when in fact it is not a stomach gland-produced acid at all.
