Avocado Oil Tainted

Avocado Oil tainted with cheaper oil.
There is so much research on the exceptional benefit of this exceptionally creamy oil, that so many want to improve the health of their skin. Most people who buy avocado oil want its health benefits, as well as the mild, fresh flavor, and are willing to pay more for the product,” says Selina Wang, a food scientist at the University of California, where they found that 82 Percent of Avocado Oil Rancid or Mixed With Other Oils. There are no standards to determine if an avocado oil is of the quality and purity advertised, no one is regulating false or misleading labels.
The world’s production of avocados increased one million tonnes from 2014 to 2017 and is projected to continue rising with Mexico accounting for one third of the world’s production. The demand for avocado oil has increased significantly as consumers resonate with its potential health benefits, however, due to the lack of enforceable standards, consumers are unprotected from tainted avocado oil.

Liver Cleanse Juice


Why a Liver Cleanse
A liver cleanse should be a natural protocol designed to detoxify, flush out and eliminate the liver of fatty deposits, built up toxins, and accumulated stones. Most liver cleanse programs also include a gallbladder cleanse which helps eliminate the gallbladder of gallstones. Liver stones are formed when excess cholesterol crystallises into small pebble size stones.
A liver cleanse usually involves eating a healthy organic diet and drinking a organic herbal formula that are specific to stimulate the liver and to soften any stones which the body can eliminate.
This is a beautiful glass of bountiful cleansing veggies – to help the liver detoxify, juice collard greens with kale, mustard greens, carrots, celery and cucumber. Drink 1-2 glasses daily.

Chinese Nutritional Healing, ‘Dietary or Nutritional Therapy’ is one of the most important aspects of Chinese Medicine. It is the way we engage with our health on a daily basis both preventing and healing illness. It is an ancient way of looking at food and drink through the theory of Yin Yang, the 5 elements, and ‘energy of everyday food’. In Chinese medicine, every food has a type of energy in addition to its physical nutrients. This allows for a holistic understanding of exactly what a food does to you when you eat it. Using this knowledge, a Chinese Medicine diagnosis becomes a powerful tool for healing. Chinese Nutrition is a holistic system of diagnosis and therapy, where each person’s individual characteristics are taken into account to provide a unique diagnosis and a personalised treatment programme.
