Lecithin is a complex mixture of choline, inositol, fatty acids, and phosphorous with high concentrations in the brain, liver, kidneys, and bone marrow.Lecithin helps to maintain the structural integrity of cells. Dandelions are such an excellent detox so their components will work very hard to help the liver in keeping us healthy.
Milk thistle is a supplement I take religiously. Every night when I take the doctor prescribed medication to help lower my cholesterol, I take milk thistle.
Toxins are everywhere!
We eat, breathe, touch, and consume toxins on a daily basis. Some of them we cannot get away from, others we knowingly allow into our systems. Isn't it up to us to try and take care of what we have? Would we deliberately run our car into a tree every day, and yet we consistently do things we know are harmful. We will take care of our cars. Why not our bodies? Aren't we more precious?
I have a special friend who has a childhood friend who is in the final stages of liver cancer. She gave me a special request to look up foods and herbs to help her. If only we knew before hand what was coming around the corner. If only we knew that cancer was going to invade our bodies. We could prepare better. If she clicks on the links she can read more about the above herbs. My heart and prayers are with her and here is her list:
I am going to include the foods in another post, as I must get ready for church now. I appreciate so much your visits and hope your days are all happy and healthy, the way that God intended. I also want to give my profound thanks to James A. Duke, PhD who wrote The Green Pharmacy. I have found so many treasures there!! Blessings and hugs!!
P.S. I know the saying is an "ounce of prevention a pound of cure" - but I want you to get the full effect. :-)
