Lower HBP with celery…new twist on the master cleanse…
Did You Know? Celery
In a test where animals were given 4 stalks of celery their blood pressure was reduced by an average of 13 per cent and their cholesterol by 7 per cent. Why? Celery contains active compounds called pthalides, which help relax the muscles around the arteries, allowing those vessels to dilate.
That’s about 4 ounces of celery daily. www.whfoods.com.
Master Cleanse without the Cayenne
Many of us who are involved in healthier lifestyles know and use different internal cleanses on a yearly basis. And one of the more popular ones is the Master Cleanse. Hundred of times a year I’m asked if this is a good cleanse, and, yes, the famous lemon and cayenne mix is fantastic for ridding the body of mucous and toxic waste although it is hard on the teeth. It is best to brush the teeth after drinking the master cleanse.
During this last year what I have also come to know is that there are those that cannot tolerate the cayenne because they are un-accustom to spice. I had never considered this possibility since I’m from Texas and spice is just a part of cuisine around here.
So this article is dedicated to those that would like a gentler and smoother version. With the original recipe it says you can take the cayenne in capsule form, but I find that it burns the stomach when the capsules open up in the stomach.
Ingredients: 6-10 Lemons
Raw Agave Nectar – no more than 1/2 cup
Niacin Water – 10-13 ounces
Humic Minerals – 4 ounces
Fulvic Acid – 10 ounces
Gelled Chia Seeds – 1 1/4 cup (7 days worth)
Filtered Water – 2 1/2 to 3 quarts (fill up)
Aloe Vera Juice – OPTIONAL – 10 ounces
George’s Fractionally Distilled Liquid
Duration: 7-10 days
How to begin: If you eat pretty healthy, tighten up your diet even more for 3 days prior to starting the master cleanse. Preferably eating mostly salads. Limit the fruit.
If your diet is standard American diet, then it will be best to begin cleaning up you diet for a few months first. Call me to get you started.
The day before you begin the cleanse, don’t eat after 3:00 p.m. The night before take a moment to make the niacin water, and gel the chia seeds.
Niacin water: Twin Labs, Yeast Free 1000 mg.
Open one capsule up and empty into a 1-quart bottle and fill with filtered water, shake and put in the refrigerator.
Gelled Chia Seeds: Add 1/4 cup chia seeds to 1-quart of filtered water. I prefer to mix it in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake the jar (with the chia seeds and water) really well. Wait 10-15 minutes and shake again. Shake a third time in another 10-15 minutes. After that place jar in frig.
Very few people like to make it up per glass, so making a gallon for the day makes the most sense. Four quarts makes a gallon. In the morning mix the ingredients listed above, and shake. Drink this throughout the day. You can have as much filtered water, as you would like too.
Why did I use agave nectar instead of grade B maple syrup? Raw agave nectar has a low glycemic index and is safe for diabetics to take. Even though maple syrup does have minerals it doesn’t have as many minerals as I’d like, so this is why I add the Humic Minerals and Fulvic Acid. Both of these minerals come from deep within the earth. Rumor has it that Fulvic acid breaks down and washes away malignancies in the body.
Why do I use Niacin Water? Niacin is a B vitamin and dilates the blood vessels thus increasing flow of blood throughout the body. Because of this the body is able absorb and cleanse better. Cayenne is a dilator too, but this recipe is without the cayenne.
Why do I use gelled chia seeds? Chia seeds are considered an endurance food, keeping the body hydrated. And it keeps the intestines and colon moving, which is what we want. In the original master cleanse it is suggested to use laxative teas. Well for me drinking more liquid is a challenge. I’d rather add the chia seeds and let them do the work. Just shake before you drink so you get some of those magical little seeds. (You can read more about chia seeds on my website on the product page.)
Why would I add Aloe Vera Juice? Aloe Vera and its uses are recognized since early biblical times for its many healing properties including being very soothing and lubricating to the inside of our bodies. George’s is able to capture the benefits of aloe Vera without having to add preservatives like other companies. And George’s is consistent in taste and doesn’t have to be refrigerated.
If you wish to add the Epsom salt flush too, you can. It is used in the master cleanse. All you do is mix 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt or 1 tablespoon of sea salt to 1 quart of water. Shake it well and drink it in the morning or later in the evening. This creates a saline that will flush out the bowels and lymph nodes throughout the elimination system. This can be done daily during the 7-10 cleanse. The stools will be really watery plus it helps to dislodge mucous and petrified waste within the colon.
The greatest thing about keeping a body clean is that it keeps the parts working without all the creaks and groans. If you clean now, you reduce the chance of anything accumulating and forming anything life threatening.

There are so many people suffering from depression, bipolar, ADD, anxiety, or fatigue. It’s a mixed bag on the cause; it’s usually a combination of things. Diet and stress are a large contributing factor. One-way to help the body in handling the stress is to supple it with the right vitamins and foods. The improvement is profound and recognized within just a few days.
My sister’s husband suffers from bipolar, so in hopes of helping I started asking questions. During this process I came across a gentleman whose wife had suffered most of her life as well as many of her family members with bipolar disorder. She contributes her freedom from depression and bipolar to EM Power Plus.
For reasons that are not fully understood, people with mental illnesses seem to need more of certain vitamins and trace minerals than other people. Research has shown this strong connection between brain function and nutrients. Numerous studies of EMPP have shown positive results. EMPP is food for the starving brain.
Can a person without depression or mental challenges take EMPP? YES! I spoke with the company because I like to test products myself before every referring them to a client. From the very first dose I noticed an increased energy level, calmness and mental clarity. I just take 1/4 the dose.
Will I keep taking them? YES!
1 bottle is $99, and 2 bottles are $169.70.
