**The Beet Transit Test**

The article link above provides some excellent information on how to check your colon health and to keep it as healthy as possible.  I do a beet transit test each Sunday as part of my mock fecal transplant therapy that I have posted about many times.

For a normal human you should start to see beet red stool after about 18-24 hours of consuming it.  When you have cleansed everything out as I have mentioned before, you see that much faster and you know you are now clear.

This test can tell you a lot of things.

  1. If you never see the beets: you are really constipated and slow moving in the gi.
  2. If you see it too quickly and you have not cleansed, you have IBS-D active.
  3. If you see it in about 12+ hours, you are doing pretty well.

Here is my recipe for today and it was pretty tasty also:

Beet Transit Juice + Choice probiotic

  • 3 small/med beets
  • 3 apples
  • 1/2 bag cranberries
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Coconut water to taste

Please consider the weekly cleanse.  I cleanse out with herbal and PH water.  I drink this juice and take probiotics to reseed the gi tract.

Have a great week ahead :):)


Autoimmune Disease : An Epidemic!

Dr. Mark Hyman explains the likely cause of all autoimmune disease perfectly in this video. It contains everything that I personally believe that caused my own Crohn’s Disease. He discusses how the chemicals in the processed foods we eat cause our immune systems to go crazy and attack itself. How many doctors only treat the symptoms and not the true cause with dangerous medications and surgical procedures.

He also mentions how cleansing and detoxifying the body will help to reverse autoimmune disease. Remove the chemicals, preservatives and replace with real food. Next, purify the body with juicing of detoxifying vegetables and herbs. Heal the body by treating the main causes!!! I did everything that he speaks about in this video and it has worked!
