Whole Foods Market is a wonderland for me!
While we were away this weekend, we stopped into the Rochester, Michigan location to pick up some party supplies, and while we were there, I couldn’t stop myself from exploring the produce department. Ahhh, all those beautiful bins of fresh fruits and vegetables are like candy to me! :)
I was admiring each and every one of them, and then as if a shaft of light came down from above, I spotted the black radishes. This is a vegetable that has such amazing therapeutic value, and I’d only ever experienced it encapsulated in our Standard Process products! But here they were in real life. Some people may pass them by as being unattractive, and possibly a little scary looking, but knowing the benefits makes them gorgeous to me!
When we recommend Black Radish in the office it is typically used for liver detoxification. The liver is critical for regulating cholesterol. It manages the purification of your blood. It is responsible for eliminating excess hormones, like cortisol, adrenaline, and estrogen from the body. It has over 600 functions, so we need to love our livers, feed them and nurture them so that they can do their job for a very long time.
Detoxification of the liver allows all of the necessary B vitamins, C, and zinc to support the skin to bring back a youthful glow, and to heal scarring or stretch marks. Keep in mind that the health of the skin includes the scalp, so if the scalp is healthy, there will be less hair loss, and hair growth will be at its optimum.
Black radish is also essential in balancing the thyroid. Down-regulating it if it’s hyperactive as in Graves disease or Hashimoto’s disease, or up-regulating if it's hypo-active.
So if you see these remarkable Black Radishes, better known as “Black Magic”, buy them… juice them…. eat them on a salad, and let them to rapidly restore and rebalance your entire body, top to bottom, inside and out!
[And if you don't see them fresh, or prefer not to eat them, let me know and we can get you hooked up with some organic Standard Process Spanish Black Radish capsules that will assist your body in all the ways that are listed above.]
