power foodsAuthor: Dr. Bridget 

1. Broccoli sprouts– contain some of THE most detoxification-stimulating and anti-carcinogenic compounds
2. Rosemary– a high power antioxidant
3. Turmeric– strongly anti-inflammatory and cancer preventing
4. Artichokes, more artichokes, and then more artichokes- an all around detoxifier
5. Pomegranate, berries, red/purple grapes, peels from unwaxed citrus– for the antioxidants

6. Brassica vegetables, including broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, radishes especially daikon, turnips, cauliflower, kale, collard, brussel sprouts, arugula- rich in compounds that support detoxification, especially in the lungs and liver
7. Bitter foods, such as frisee, endive, radicchio, burdock root, chicory, dandelion, escarole- to support bile movement, which is one major route of toxicant excretion
8. Garlic, onions, leeks– to support detoxification, especially in the lungs and liver
9. Mushrooms, especially shiitake, maitake, lion’s mane, oyster- to support immune cells with tissue repair
10. Sauerkraut or other ferments– to support an anti-inflammatory gut environment
11. Pastured organic animal liver– chocked full of nutrients required for detoxification
12. Chlorella, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, oat or rice bran– to promote healthy gut flora and bind toxicants in the gut to help eliminate them
13. Green tea– antioxidant-rich and anti-cancer
14. Throat coat tea– to soothe irritated mucous membranes
15. As many naturally colorful foods as possible- I’m not talking about Skittles here. Think purple carrots, calendula, red, yellow and orange peppers, red rice, red quinoa, purple radish, purple or orange sweet potatoes.

What’s NOT on the menu: Alcohol, sugar, foods that are grilled, smoked or fried, processed foods

Sweet Sleep
Love sweet sleep

I sleep better ever since I have been taking sweet sleep. I combine it with cherry bomb. Great products from Farmacopia.

very refreshing

The name sounded good and I really love it. It smells wonderful and feels very good on my face. I use it in the morning after washing my face and let it dry before I apply sunscreen.

Best Natural Pain Relief

I have chronic nerve pain and often get an extra impingement that is very difficult to get relief acupuncturist recommended Nerve Balm, so I tried it and it worked!!!! I will never not have it in my arsenal!! I even have prescribed compounded pain cream, but I would much prefer to use Nerve Balm first!! I have even shared it with at least a couple other people!! Will recommend to anyone who has nerve pain!! I am so grateful for this amazing product!!

I enjoy it inmy smoothie!

I started using this product at the beginning of the pandemic. It was suggested by a staff member when I asked about immune building products. I have been very satisfied with this powder which I mix into a smoothie or apple juice.The taste is fine and I feel like I am putting something very nourishing into my body. I highly recommend this product.

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.
