Dear Friends,

Often you ask me which fruits, greens, or veggies are good for particular illnesses. Recently I have created such program that answers many of these questions. So far it is available only on iPhones. We are currently working on the website that will make all of this data available to anyone. We are planning to release this website in March, 2011. We will keep you informed. Meanwhile, I will be sending to you some useful fragments of this program. The following tips can help recover from high blood pressure. You may add one or more of these ingredients.

Let food be thy medicine!

Strawberries

Strawberries provide an excellent source of Vitamins C and K, fiber, and flavonoids. They also offer a very good source of vitamin B1, iodine, manganese,and pantothenic acid. Strawberries are also a good source of vitamin B6, folic acid, and biotin. Strawberries have been linked with numerous health benefits, one of which is reducing high blood pressure.

Tomatoes

Niacin has been used for years as a safe way to lower high cholesterol levels. Diets rich in potassium have been shown to lower high blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. Vitamin B6 and folate are both needed by the body to convert a potentially dangerous chemical called homocysteine into other, benign molecules. High levels of homocysteine, which can directly damage blood vessel walls, are associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. All of these nutrients work together to make tomatoes a truly heart-healthy food.

Cucumber

Potassium helps reduce blood pressure and heart rates by countering effects of sodium. Cucumbers have mild diuretic property due to their high water content, which is helpful in checking weight loss and high blood pressure.

Guavas

  2. Lisa says:

    What do you think about adding 1 ounce aloe to my green smoothie?

  3. Cathy Smith says:

    Can you put wheatgrass as it is and mix it in with your smoothie, or do you have to juice it first? How should you use per day?

  4. Cathy Smith says:

    I was wondering if yI can put the wheatgrass as it is in the blender when I make my smoothies, or do you have to juice it first?

    Hi,
    This is awesome information and I am sharing it with those in my life that have High Blood Pressure. I would like to help a friend of mine whose nine year old son was struggling with asthma symptoms last night. I almost sure green smoothies would help him tremendously. What would be a good green smoothie recipe for a nine year old child with asthma. I believe your daughter Valya has asthma? What would she recommend? Big Thanks and much appreciation for what The Raw Family is doing. You all are a Blessing!

  7. Kim McCray says:

    I’m sorry I meant to say Valya HAD asthma. I know she no longer does!

  8. Kim McCray says:

    I’m sorry I meant to say Valya HAD asthma. I know she no longer does! She is beautiful, vibrant and healthy! :D

  9. Thank you! I just started drinking green smoothies about a month ago and I really love them. I have high blood pressure and was not getting any benefit from the meds, plus the side effects are quite unpleasant, so I’m hoping green smoothies and a mostly raw diet will help.

  10. Roxanne says:

    Should I be adding Chia seeds to my green smoothies? I have been, but not sure if it is a good idea since Chia seeds are a soluble fiber. Thanks!

  11. Victoria says:

    Chia seed is probably the only thing that I personally add to my green smoothies once in a while, that is for the sake of Omega-3s.

  12. Victoria says:

    There is no one smoothie that is particularly good for asthma. Rather, the variety would help. It is important to remove white flour and white sugar when treating asthma. That is what helped Valya when she was 8 years old. She has never had another asthmatic attack since then.

    Dear Alex-I wish you didn’t look at that book which someone translated with a lot of mistakes and placed it on the internet. Instead I recommend that you read my real book “12 Steps to Raw Foods” in Russian published by Peter Publishing House. You will find it to be quite different, more scientific and more enjoyable
