A few months ago I began a daily detox and juicing challenge. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and scoliosis of the spine and although a pharmacist, I turn to medications as a last resort. It has been proven that many diseases in the body are a result of inflammation of some sort. I have heard for so long about Matcha Green Tea and the powder and it’s amazing health benefits. The teabags are ok, but the powder is amazingly more potent.
Each morning when I awaken I take about 3 tablespoonsful of apple cider vinegar (it must have “the mother” in it) in a full cup of good quality filtered or bottled water, sometimes with half of a teaspoon of ground ginger powder, ground black pepper and a teaspoon of ground tumeric powder. I drink all of this with the aid of a straw so as not to damage the enamel of my teeth since vinegar is very acidic.
After about 15-20 minutes I drink whatever fruits and veggies that I have prepared from juicing. Strawberries, cucumbers, apples, carrots, beets, pomegranates and kale are great examples of wonderful fruits and veggies that can be used. Usually, I make enough juice for a few days since I have such a hectic schedule. This way it helps me to continue the regimen daily. The key to this gradual detox is to allow it to happen over a period of time. You will notice the inches slowly slip away but you will feel more energy and less inflammation in your body over time. Also, my arthritis pain has decreased and my stomach feels less bloated for the first time in years.
There are some sources that say to drink the Matcha Green Tea at night with honey (non-refined), cinnamon, lemon and ginger before bedtime and it will help you burn calories while you sleep. I prefer to drink my tea at the most stressful time of my day which is sometimes afternoon and sometimes at night. Either way, I have seen some truly amazing results over the last 3 months.
It has helped a great deal in my detox process to minimize my dairy and bread intake. I occasionally have cheese but it is truly not something that I miss eating on a regular basis. I drink almond milk if I want a plant-based substitute for recipes. I can feel a huge difference in how my clothes fit me. Check out my results below! By the way, I had a bit of a relapse in January due to a few frustrations in my life or I believe I would have arrived at these results a month earlier; however, it is really working for me and hope it can help someone else. If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart conditions, high cholesterol, liver or kidney disease or some kind of another metabolic disease, it’s always best to consult your physician before making any drastic changes, however, these are just natural things…..healing from food and herbs, the best remedy given by the Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth!
Check out these results and decide for yourself:
November 1, 2019
Bust: 36.5, Waist 33.5, Hips 41, Upper arm 11.5, Upper thigh 22.5 (inches)
November 16, 2019
Bust: 35.5, Waist 33.5, Hips 40.5, Upper arm 11.25, Upper thigh 22 (inches)
December 2019 & January 2020 Relapse😥
Bust: 36.0, Waist 33.5, Hips 41, Upper arm 11.5, Upper thigh 22.5
After adding the Matcha Tea Powder to the regimen for one month (in addition to the match tea bag that I was already using)
February 12, 2020
Bust: 35.5, Waist 32.5, Hips 39.5, Upper arm 11.0, Upper thigh 22.0
Total inches lost to date: 4 inches!
And I only use about 1/2 teaspoonful of the Matcha Green Tea Powder daily!
I never weigh myself as a rule because it’s not as important to me as total inches lost. Also keep in mind that you should exercise at least 3 times a week for 20-30 minutes, even if it’s just walking or incorporating it into your busy day by taking the stairs everywhere you go.
Still not convinced? Okay, just take a look of these proven benefits of Matcha Green Tea Powder:
- Anti-oxidant effects
- Boosts metabolism
- Increases brain function
- Helps prevent cancer
- Helps protect the liver and the heart
