You might think of detoxification as a harsh procedure that is disruptive to your social life. Here is a more delicious idea. Day by day eat foods that constantly detoxify your systems – like the colon, liver, and circulatory system and keep you in tip top shape at the cellular level where disease and aging starts .
Natural, fresh, as yet inexpensive and definitely bearing gifts, here comes parsley.
Parsley detoxifies your body at the cellular level. It is high in Vitamin C which supports and cleanses the immune system. This gives chemo- protective rescue from internal damage at the cellular level where most illnesses are conceived. It has chlorophyll that cleanses the bowels, liver and lungs. Chlorophyll also has anti-inflammatory properties, which means less aches and pains.
It is a misuse of parsley to use it only as a garnish. To get more food benefits make parsley pesto. Use a food processor or blender. Blend parsley with other enhancing and cleansing foods like lemon juice, pine nuts or walnuts, garlic and olive oil. To detoxify your system use it regularly as a sauce, as a snack spread it on bread or just stir it into cooked rice or pasta.
Parsley should not be cooked. Cooking destroys Vitamin C and changes the characteristics of chlorophyll thus destroying its chemo-protective abilities.
Parsley can also be added to green food smoothies. Parsley has high antioxidant behavior which stops tumor formation, keeps the blood toxin and oxidant free and even helps you to resist cancer. With the use of parsley’s chemo protective properties you might never have to hear you doctor utter these scary words- “you need to have chemotherapy”
