Smoothies and Greens
One of the greatest therapies for degenerative diseases is to enter the Green Zone. On the Living Foods diet you eat a lot of produce, especially greens and after a while a person desires greens, and salads and vegetables. For degenerative disease, a person needs to enter into and stay in the, Green Zone!
Thus Six Sigma Nutrition recommends at least one or two or three of these every day, to help achieve and remain in the Green Zone.
- a green smoothie
- green superfoods
- a shot of wheat grass
- a glass or several glasses of green juice
- a large salad with Kale and/or other greens
Thus the Alleluia Diet and Six Sigma Nutrition recommends this not just from its research and experience but from the experience and recommendations of others. These six suggestions are found in other raw vegan diets such as:
- Gerson Diet: several glasses of green juice
- Hippocrates Diet: a shot or two of wheat grass daily
- pH miracle Diet: Super Greens every day.
- Rainbow Green Diet: a large salad with Kale and other greens daily
- Sunfood Diet: many green superfoods
- Raw Family Diet: a large green smoothie daily
- Raw Revolution Diet: many greens in general
- Alleluia Diet: three or more of these variations every day
- Hallelujah Diet: daily green superfoods and blended green foods
- Natural Hygiene Diet: lots of greens every day
One reason for this apparent need is the closeness of the chlorophyll molecule to blood. Greens supply us with chlorophyll. Chlorophyll’s molecular structured is very similar to the hemoglobin molecule of blood. The molecular structure of human blood and of chlorophyll are identical except that human blood has iron as its center and chlorophyll has magnesium at its center.
Green smoothies are one of the easiest and most delicious and fun ways to get greens into your diet. People with degenerative diseases need even more green foods in their diet, because the chlorophyll is a blood purifier and has many notable activities in the body and therapeutic activity. To eat the amount of greens that is needed is difficult. Green food powders are one way to get around this and have become very popular and successful. Also the blender opens up the plant cells to let the chlorophyll and nutrients out to get into your system easier.
Many in the raw food movment are getting into making green smoothies a revolution that was primarily started by Victoria Boutenko of the Raw Family with their book: Green for Life. Victoria Boutenko points out some of the benefits of chlorophyll: Chlorophyll has been proven helpful in preventing and healing many forms of cancer and arteriosclerosis. …some of the many healing properties of this amazing substance. Chlorophyll: Builds a high blood count; helps prevent cancer; provides iron to organs; makes the body more alkaline; counteracts toxins eaten; improves anemic conditions; cleans and deodorizes bowel tissues; helps purify the liver; aids hepatitis improvement; regulates menstruation; aids hemophilia condition; helps sores heal faster; eliminates body odors; resists bacteria in wounds; cleans tooth and gum structure in pyorrhea; eliminates bad breath; …”(1)
Green smoothies are basically green vegetables and fruits and other stuff. There are many variations. A basic one that I use is to start with a banana and water or juice and blend it, add some lettuce blend it, add another fruit or vegetable or two blend it, add some protein powder, flax seed oil and some green powder blend it, add whatever else I want and blend it. It can be a whole meal in one glass!
The benefit of green smoothies is not only in the extremely healthy mixture just mentioned above, but that it gives a place to add many of your nutrient supplements to in a tasty way. Add some of the daily nutrients, flax oil and protein powder that you’ll have to take, into the green smoothie and blend it up, than drink it down! That was good for you!
Green smoothies, wheatgrass or other freshly juiced greens, keep the greens in their colloidal form which is closest to the human body. This is the highest form of taking in chlorophyll, trace minerals, phytonutrients and other essentials in greens. Powdered greens come in a close second at about 80% of the value of fresh greens. Even though powdered greens lose 20% or more of their value they are still very beneficial.
Entering into this Alleluia Green Zone in the Alleluia and Six Sigma Diet is also found in many other raw food diets. Most of the major raw food teachers emphasize this importance of greens in their diets. Some of these include:
Ann Wigmore discovered and researched wheatgrass and made it known. She is recognized all over the world for her teachings on wheatgrass.
Reverend George Malkamus in his Halleluiah Diet emphasizes the use of Barley grass powder twice a day as a basic part of his diet.
Robert Young, Ph.D. in his pH Miracle Diet emphasies the use of his Super Greens. Super Greens are his superfood to be used daily.
Gabriel Cousens, MD emphasizes this Alleluia Green Zone in his diet, the “Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine”.
The Gerson Diet emphasizes six glasses of greens a day for their cancer therapy, along with six glasses of carrot juice. And a lot of salad material every day.
The Raw Family witness is in the Testimonial chapter. After the witness Victoria Boutenko writes about the discovery of green smoothies.
The Raw Revolution Diet emphasizes vegan and lots of greens.
The Healthy Journey Diet of Fred Bisci emphasizes greens.
The Alleluia and Six Sigma Diets emphasizes that use of one or more of these methods above daily. Then learn to listen to and follow your intuition on the amount and type.
