Raspberry leaf is the ideal reproductive system reorganizer and protector. It’s also an overall hormonal balancer and supports the entire endocrine system in hormone output.
Raspberry leaf brewed as tea is one of the most profound tonics to address infertility and prepare a woman’s body for pregnancy. It is useful to help prevent miscarriages, and it is a secret tool to address exhaustion following childbirth and postpartum depression.
Raspberry leaf is known to enhance production of breast milk. What doesn’t get attention is that raspberry leaf also fortifies the mother’s milk with vitamins and minerals, making it more nutritious for baby.
Raspberry leaf is also beneficial for men, mostly as a blood cleanser and overall detoxifier.
For anybody, raspberry leaf’s phytochemicals, including antioxidant compounds such as anthocyanins and polyphenols, make it an all-purpose anti-inflammatory, specifically for the organs and glands.
This herb is also amazing for those with iron deficiencies, helps grow hair when needed, and because it helps strengthen the pancreas, those who are dealing with pancreatitis can do very well on this herb.
How To Use:
Raspberry leaf is best consumed as a tea. Make a cup of raspberry leaf tea if you feel a low point in the day. It can help take the edge off. For the most profound effect of restoring the reproductive system and balancing hormones, make a tea with raspberry leaf and nettle leaf together. You can read about amounts of tea to drink for reproductive issues in Cleanse To Heal.
For more information on the healing properties of raspberry leaf, including the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits, and which symptoms and conditions it can help with, check out the New York Times best-selling book, Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits & Vegetables, and the other books in the Medical Medium series.

These quick and easy wraps are a perfect snack or meal for busy days or when you want a simple meal that will nourish you without requiring much time or energy to prepare. They’re also a convenient option to take with you on the go. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.
The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Banana soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. They’re a great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods such as the sprouts, sea vegetables, herbs, and onions in this recipe, or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.
Banana Nori Wraps
Place a nori sheet shiny side down on a chopping board with a long edge close to you. Arrange 1/2 cup sprouts, 1 green onion, 1 banana (or 1 chopped potato), dulse flakes, and cilantro (if using) on one end of the sheet.
Brush water across the other end of the sheet, and then roll it up tightly. Cut in half and repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
Makes 1-2 servings
* If you’d prefer, you can make these nori wraps with steamed potatoes instead of bananas—just don’t use both banana and steamed potatoes. Steamed potato nori wraps would be best consumed in the evening away from any fruit snacks or meals. They’re also a good choice for an easy meal any time after the cleanse. You can add a light squeeze of fresh lemon juice to the wraps if you like.

Enjoy the flavor of Sweet and Sour Sauce in this recipe without the processed ingredients that are often used in these sauces. This stir-fry comes together easily and quickly so you can sit down to a beautiful meal in no time! This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.
Asparagus provides a wealth of flavonoids, many of them undiscovered or unstudied, that are highly anti-inflammatory; they act as natural aspirin and soothe a hot, overburdened, struggling liver. The liver’s ability to cleanse increases greatly from this calming effect.
The “trunks” of broccoli are rich in phytochemical sulfur compounds that act as harmful gas to unfriendly bacteria and other microorganisms inside the intestinal tract and also travel straight to the liver, where they saturate liver tissue, allowing the liver’s immune system to have a fighting chance at controlling pathogens.
Sweet & Sour Stir Fry
FOR THE SAUCE
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the pineapple juice, lime juice, grated ginger and garlic, cayenne or red pepper flakes, maple syrup, tomato paste, and arrowroot powder. Set aside.
Add the green onions and carrots to a large non-stick ceramic pan. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, adding a bit of water if needed to prevent sticking, until the carrots are almost tender. Add in the broccoli florets, asparagus, and bell peppers and cook for a further 5 minutes. When all the vegetables are tender, pour in the sauce and bring it to a boil, stirring frequently, until thickened. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
Makes 2 servings

Lemon balm, also known as Melissa officinalis, is an essential herb for calming the nerves—in particular, those involved with digestion. Nerves play a role in much of the digestive distress we experience in this day and age. If someone’s stomach or intestines are irritated for no identifiable reason, it’s usually due to sensitive nerves.
Lemon balm has soothing properties that make it a gift from God and Mother Nature to deal with our frazzling world. It has bioactive phytochemicals such as undiscovered alkaloids that calm the nerve receptors at the digestive tract so that the nerves become less sensitized and inflammation reduces. This makes lemon balm a valuable herb for stress assistance.
Lemon balm helps countless health problems, with a high contribution factor to almost every part of the body.
Extremely high in trace minerals such as boron, manganese, copper, chromium, molybdenum, selenium, and iron, lemon balm also has large amounts of the macromineral silica.
Lemon balm is a B12-conserving herb—which means that it monitors your stores of this vitamin and keeps your body from using it all up.
Anti-parasitic, antiviral, and antibacterial throughout the body, lemon balm helps fight the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, and other herpetic bugs such as HHV-6, which are behind countless chronic illnesses, symptoms, and conditions.
Lemon balm is an amazing herb for tonsillitis, which is inflammation caused by strep bacteria.
Lemon balm detoxifies the liver, spleen, and kidneys, and helps reduce bladder inflammation, which makes it a star for helping to alleviate interstitial cystitis and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
How To Use:
Lemon balm is most therapeutic when taken as an alcohol-free tincture or as herbal tea. Check out Cleanse To Heal for specific supplement and dosage recommendations for over 200 symptoms and conditions.

Either emotional injury or toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, and copper, or many times, both causes create the symptoms of OCD in combination with each other. In some extreme cases of OCD, electrical impulses that travel down neurons in certain specific areas of the brain where there are mercury and aluminum deposits then collide with those deposits. Each time, this can cause a tiny “explosion” that temporarily sends a signal back the other way.
OCD can show up in many ways. Some common examples include:
Find out how you can heal OCD by addressing the root cause in the New York Times best-selling book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.

Cilantro, also called coriander and Chinese parsley, is the go-to herb for heavy metal detoxification. The brain draws up precious mineral salt compounds from cilantro with a surprise package attached: phytochemicals that deliberately remove toxic heavy metals from the brain, freeing up neurons from toxic heavy metal oxidized residue, so that they can function at their best.
Cilantro is also very valuable for extracting heavy metals and other toxins from other body systems and organs, particularly the liver. In fact, it’s an amazing liver detoxifier in its own right.
It’s one of the best adrenal support herbs, too, and wonderful for balancing blood glucose levels and staving off weight gain, brain fog, and memory issues.
Cilantro is also antiviral—cilantro helps keep down levels of the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, HHV6, cytomegalovirus (CMV), and other herpetic viruses in all their various forms, as well as HIV.
It’s also antibacterial; it helps to fight off virtually every form of bacteria and flush its waste from your body, and it’s also anti-worm.
How To Use:
For best results, incorporate fresh cilantro into your meals multiple times a day. You can juice some along with fresh vegetables, fruits, and leafy greens, put a handful in a smoothie, add it to a chopped salad, soup, salsa, or guacamole. The more cilantro you use, the more benefits it will bring. One of the best ways to consume it is in the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie so you can safely and effectively remove as many metals as possible. It’s ideal to drink this smoothie daily.
For more information on the healing properties of cilantro, including the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits, and which symptoms and conditions it can help with, check out the New York Times best-selling book, Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits & Vegetables, and the other books in the Medical Medium series.

This group of troublemakers is extremely toxic to the central nervous system. Anybody with neurological sensitivities and symptoms will be especially sensitive to them.
It’s impossible to avoid all of these toxins, but we can understand what we are up against so we can minimize our exposure to these toxins when possible and take the steps to heal and cleanse our bodies of the rest. Knowing what we are up against is a critical step to being empowered to heal and support and bodies with what they need. If we turn a blind eye, we can cheat ourselves of the opportunity to heal and even prevent future sickness.
Let's take a brief look at a few of these troublemakers. Read more about each of them in Liver Rescue.
Exhaust fumes: Exposure comes from walking down the street, grabbing a package at a delivery person’s truck while the truck is still running, getting stuck in traffic on your way to work, passing a lawn that’s being mowed or mowing your own, walking up to a restaurant for lunch just as someone fires up a car a few feet away, and so on. Although carbon monoxide is deadly if someone is poisoned by it when there isn’t enough ventilation for exhaust fumes, it’s not the poison in the liver. The petrochemical particles in the exhaust itself are what end up in the liver.
Dioxins: Imagine a world coated with a dust too fine to see that’s inhaled and eaten by every creature on the planet. That’s our world, and dioxins are the “dust.” These pollutants, a byproduct of over 100 years of chemical factory malfeasance, find their way into air, water, and food. Modern life is generalized dioxin exposure.
Carpet chemicals: These include the chemicals used to treat new carpets during manufacture, the chemicals released from old carpets when they’re cleaned, and the carpet cleaning chemicals themselves. We inhale carpet chemicals and also get them on our skin and clothes when we sit on carpets or walk on them in bare feet.
You can read more about the petrochemical troublemaker group in Liver Rescue, along with critical information on how to cleanse these toxins out of your body and heal from chronic illnesses, symptoms, and conditions in both Liver Rescue and Cleanse to Heal.

These Buffalo Cauliflower bites may be a healthier alternative to traditional recipes, but don’t let that fool you; they are full of flavor! You will likely want to make this recipe over and over again. This recipe is great for an appetizer, snack, light meal, or even a main meal served alongside a salad. It’s also oil-free, grain-free, and plant based.
Cauliflower is often avoided by thyroid patients because it’s labeled “goitrogenic,” but cauliflower is in fact one of your thyroid’s best friends, as it helps the thyroid fight off Epstein-Barr virus, which is the real cause of most thyroid problems. Cauliflower contains the trace mineral boron, which supports the entire endocrine system. Cauliflower also contains phytochemicals that can stop the thyroid from shrinking during the atrophy that can occur from long-term overmedication with prescription thyroid hormones.
Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cassava flour and water. The batter should be thick enough to coat the cauliflower. If it's too thick, add a few tablespoons of water. Add the cauliflower to the bowl and toss until well coated. Using a fork, transfer the battered cauliflower to the baking sheet, shaking off the excess batter. Leave at least 1 inch between each piece. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until crisp. Flip the cauliflower pieces over halfway through.
To make the ranch sauce, combine the zucchini, cashews, lemon juice, garlic powder and onion powder in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the dill and parsley and set aside. To make the hot sauce, combine the fresh hot peppers, garlic, tomato paste, lemon juice, paprika, raw honey, water, and arrowroot starch in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a large saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. If the sauce is very thick add a bit more water. Add the baked cauliflower and toss to coat. Remove from heat and place on a serving plate or platter together with the celery stalks. Serve immediately with prepared ranch sauce.
