(NaturalNews) Many people are familiar with parsley as the green sprig that decorates many restaurant meals. But the truth is: that little green sprig packs some powerful health benefits. In fact, parsley is packed with so many nutrients that eating it is almost like taking a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement - one that's all natural and available at a fraction of the cost.
Here's some of what parsley can do: Parsley builds blood, aids in digestion, boosts energy, combats fatigue, helps the heart, dissolves cholesterol in the veins, supports the adrenals, strengthens teeth, builds bones, prevents birth defects, enhances nutrient absorption, eliminates bloating, reduces inflammation, and provides hormonal support. Parsley is well known for helping or solving most kidney problems and also provides general immune support.
To boot, parsley is a high-chlorophyll blood purifier that aids in detoxification, particularly of the kidneys but also of the liver. And the herb packs in dense nutrients including: vitamin A, vitamin C, beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, manganese, potassium, folic acid, sulfur, vitamin K, and B vitamins 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6. Parsley is even rumored to contain trace amounts of B12.
Parsley also contains unique volatile oils that inhibit tumors - particularly in the lungs. These oils are able to neutralize some airborne carcinogens, including some of those found in cigarette smoke and smoke from charcoal grilling. Neutralizing these airborne poisons may be why parsley helps prevent lung tumors.
To really get the immune building, nutrient fortifying, and detoxification benefits, you'll want to take parsley in some quantity. To do this, it's best to juice or blend it with other fruits or vegetables. With any fruit, you can also add a bit of stevia for extra sweetness.
Here are some easy, delicious recipes to enjoy a healthy dose:
Blend: 1 1/2 cups watermelon (seeded), 1/4 cup parsley, 1/2 cup water and a bit of stevia. It's a delicious, nutritious drink that even your kids will enjoy. Blend: 1/2 papaya, 1 banana, 1/4 cup parsley, 1/2 cup water and a bit of stevia. Juice: 3 apples and a 1/2 cup parsley. Juice: 4 carrots, 1/2 apple and a 1/2 cup parsley.
Pregnant women should avoid taking parsley in quantity.
Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.
Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them. Here's a little from the upcoming book... In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters. A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them." Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them. In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old. In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name. Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased... In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean. Kim's book Cleaning Up! is here http://www.cleaningupcleanse.com.
