There is so much we do not know about health and sometimes it takes for you to experience something to really get you digging into what is possible. This is something I had to do with my son recently for his epilepsy. We decided to try him on hemp oil for his epilepsy and we have had incredible results with him being seizure free for 5 months now.
Other times you just get lucky with health and this is what happened with Archie a few years back. We decided that his diet needed shaping up a little as he was not getting enough nutrients and at this time he was still on medication for his epilepsy, which had a few undesirable side effects.
We decided it would be a good idea to give him a little bit of a detoxification. So we flung a bunch of organic and nutritious foods together, juiced them and he reluctantly drunk them.
Before I share the recipe let me just share what I mean by “reluctant”- we had to bribe him with snacks! Yes this may not be the most effective or intelligent way to convince your child to drink a cup of green juice, but in the moment it was the way we decided to proceed.
Everyone has their different methods of parenting, what I think is important is that you do it in a way that works for you and you don’t judge yourself. I often see children walking around farmers markets, eating vegetables out of a bag and wish that my son would do the same, but you play with the hand you’re dealt and you can only do your best as a parent.
I don’t claim to be an nutritional expert and there is a good chance this will not work for many but it did work for my son, plus it is tasty and incredibly nutritious, so there is not a huge deal of risk involved.
Use organic ingredients when you can, and juice it (do not blend). 3 day supply (does not need to be exact) based on 2 sharing:
Fresh Spinach 1 cup (128 grams)
Fresh Parsley ¼ cup (32 grams)
Fresh Coriander ¼ cup (32 grams)
Fresh Mint ¼ cup (32 grams)
5 large carrots
5 medium apples
2 medium cucumbers
Before we gave Archie this recipe we had tried many different creams and external treatments for his eczema, all with very little success bar temporary relief. Our results from this were amazing, within 3 days of using the recipe his eczema had cleared up, he had a bright glow in his eyes and was really energised (not always a good thing haha) So if you or anyone you know is suffering from eczema make up a batch of this juice and share this recipe far and wide because it may just help someone out! Much love, Luke
