Kidneys and Dark Circles Under Eyes

If your kidneys aren’t being nourished well it results in poor blood flow in and out of the kidneys.  Strong, well-nourished kidneys are needed to support good blood flow and good health.

Symptoms of Kidney Insufficiency

Chinese medicine considers dark circles as a sign of weakness in the kidneys. Kidney weakness is due to exhaustion and overstrain coupled with lack of rest and relaxation. Since the kidney network in Chinese medicine governs the hormonal system, it affects the pigment melanin. It is said that unhealthy and depleted kidneys produce pigment deposits under the skin around the eyes and other parts of the face. (https://smmirror.com/2008/11/dr-maos-secrets-of-longevity-under-eye-dark-circles/)

Dry skin, dry eyes, dark circles under the eyes, vaginal dryness for women, scanty urine, a pale face with flushed red cheeks, a red peeled tongue, a rapid pulse, fatigue, irritability, afternoon heat, night sweats, and hot flashes are some of the symptoms of poorly functioning kidneys. Emotional or mental signs can include agitation or even panic attacks, feeling tired but wired, a sense of floating, or of being drained.

Heal Diabetes with Juicing and Diet Changes

Heal Diabetes with Juicing and Diet Changes

Should you juice if you have diabetes? 

Many people think juice is synonymous with fruit juice.  Fruit is not what I recommend people juice, and especially anyone with diabetes or other sugar metabolism problems, with the exception of berries, a little green apple, and lemon and lime.  You can add lemon and lime to any vegetable juice combination for flavor.  

The Best Vegetables and Fruit to Juice for Diabetes

1.      Broccoli — a superhero for diabetics.  You can juice the stems—the parts most people throw away.  Steam the florets and juice the rest with veggies like carrot, cucumber, and celery. Broccoli is rich in a phytonutrient known as sulforaphane, which promotes an anti-inflammatory process that improves blood sugar control.

2.     Wild blueberries.  A study by the USDA showed that people who “consumed 2 1/2 cups of wild blueberry juice per day for 12 weeks lowered their blood glucose levels, lifted depression, and improved their memories. Researchers credit these results to anthocyanins in the berries, a natural chemical that shrinks fat cells and also stimulates the release of adiponectin, a hormone that regulates blood glucose levels, among other things. Increasing adiponectin levels can help keep blood sugar low and increase our sensitivity to insulin.” 1

3.     Spinach.  A British study found that people who had a serving of spinach or other leafy green every day cut their risk of diabetes by 14 percent compared with those that ate less than half that amount.

4.     Collard greens.  Collards are a good source of vitamin C, which helps to lower cortisol and thereby reduces inflammation. It is also a good source of alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), a nutrient that helps us deal with stress.  “When scientists at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University gave aging rats ALA, they found that the animals’ bodies created their own antioxidants, making them better able to resist toxins in the environment and to reduce inflammation. ALA also helps reduces blood sugar and can help to strengthen the nerves damaged by diabetic neuropathy.”2 If you are cooking the greens don’t overcook it, which creates a strong sulfur smell. Five minutes of steaming or sautéing are all you need.

To control your diabetes with diet, it is important to omit all sugar, alcohol, most grains, and other starchy carbs. Get my book The Juice Lady’s Remedies for a complete program to control your diabetes with diet.
