pink pitaya smoothie bowl
This smoothie blend is a fast, simple, antioxidant-rich tonic to add to your life for deep healing. This is my breakfast on most days, even in the winter! It is super satiating, sweet and tropical. I discovered this smoothie through Anthony Williams, 'The Medical Medium', in his Liver Rescue book. I highly recommend that EVERYONE reads this or listen to his podcasts. His truth about health & healing is life-changing.
The healing power of these fruits
B A N A N A
The fructose in bananas is the liver's favourite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Bananas soothes the lining of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. This can be calming for digestional flare ups. Contrary to the popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, anti-fungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the livers ability to absorb nutrients.

Also called pink dragon fruit, the red pigment in the red-fleshed variety of pitaya is a rejuvenator for your liver, bringing cells back to life. It helps your liver produce cells faster so regeneration of the liver can occur. It's a foundation of youth-fruit for the liver that slows down and stops liver ageing by caring for its deep, inner core, which in most cases succumbs to disease if left neglected for too long. Look for packs of frozen red pitaya in the frozen section of the grocery store or online, or you may find it fresh in your area. If neither are available where you live, seek out pure pitaya powder.

Contains dozens of undiscovered antioxidants, including anthocyanin varieties. There's not just one pigments inside a wild blueberry: there are dozens of pigments not yet researched or studied. The wild blueberry is to the liver as mothers milk to a baby. Not only do wild blueberries have the ability to grab onto plenty of troublemakers (petrochemicals, chemical neuro antagonists, food chemicals, pathogens, chemical industry domestic invasions, pharmaceuticals, toxic heavy metals, radiation) they also hold onto them as they leave the liver, in a way that most other healing foods cannot. The pigments in wild blueberries have the ability to saturate deep into liver cells and cross cell walls spreading their 'blue' everywhere. Wild blueberries enhance the intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria, which benefits the liver greatly.
