As we move through some subtle planetary shifts, some people may be noticing that everything "feels heavy." Sounds super scientific and "new-agey", but it's true. I know I feel that sort of heaviness. I felt so heavy that I finally remembered to take some days off and rest: and juice it up. Truth be told, we all may experience this lack of motivation and weariness. And this is how we know that it is time for everyone to slow down a bit. But because it is time to slow down, that doesn't mean that it is time to become super lazy. We can use this time of rest to rejuvenate and heal the body. So we've got a nice juice recipe to not only blast out any sort of cold or sinus problems that may be manifesting, but also to get rid of any sort of heaviness that you may be experiencing as of lately.

Usually when I get an attack of a cold or a sinus issue, it's my body's way of telling me to slow down and chill out a bit. All that said, here is the fresh energy juice that I use to bounce right back:

*4 organic Carrots
*2 organic Apples (Cut in halves or fourths)
*1/2 bunch organic Dandelion Leaves
*1 handful organic Parsley
*1/2 inch Ginger (use your intuition: ginger is strong)

Carrots, Apples, Dandelion Leaves, and Parsley are available in local farmer's markets and organic markets (like Integral Market) in abundance. You want to eat these particular products organic and locally (if possible) because according to indigenous medicinal and healing techniques, they will allow your body to tune to the vibrations of the atmosphere and all the subtle changes within your immediate environment. When that happens, your body becomes stronger because you are more aligned with the land. If it's not possible or easy to find local or organic produce where you live, good ol' fashioned market fresh varieties are perfectly fine. 

This powerful juice combination is filled with beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, fiber, potassium, B-vitamins and tons of antioxidants and other minerals. The combination of dandelion, apple and ginger will help blast out any unhealthy mucous within the system; and it also gives the liver a very slight cleanse. It invigorates the liver to purify your system so that the body becomes stronger once again: and we all need a bit of that every now and again. There are some nutrients in apples that also aid in digestion and act as a small kidney cleanser: all neccessary for purification.

When sickness affects the body, it affects the system as a whole. Although one part of the body may be grossly affected, all aspects of the body feel the strain. So keep that in mind while going through the healing and purification process.

So muster up some energy to make a this juice, or simply take yourself to the local juice bar and have it made for you. Energy can never be created nor destroyed, right? So use some of that abundant energy to create that invigorating feeling of newness in your mind and body.
