Holistic Healing – Blueberry Smoothie

When recovering from the effects of Narcissistic abuse, one should incorporate activities and foods that help repair cellular damage brought on by long-term stress and emotional trauma.  This recipe can repair damaged cellular structures, DNA, and cognitive functioning…as well as protect against cancer and diabetes.  I would recommend consuming this smoothie at least 4 times a week, if not daily.  Further, kefir has been scientifically proven to decrease anxiety and depression because it helps increase the amount of “good bacteria” in the gut, which is where most of our serotonin (one of the “feel-good” chemicals) is produced.

Healing Blueberry Smoothie

In an 18 oz cup, blend all of the following:

1 and 1/2 cups Kefir – Plain

1 cup raw, organic blueberries – washed

1 drop Young Living Frankincense oil – (I only recommend Young Living for internal use)

½ cup spring water (or more, depending on texture preferences)

2 teaspoons organic honey (or more if you prefer a sweeter taste)

Mix until well-blended and get your healing on!

Oh, that looks great! I really want to try it!

But where do I buy this Frankincense oil. Do you have an online shop to recommend? I live in Europe, so they must ship here.

    Hi there! Well, I sell Young Living oils, but I must confess that it’s really better to sign up as a distributor. For the price you’d pay for one bottle of Frankincense, you could almost buy your own membership (that’s the only reason I signed up – to avoid retail prices). The retail price of the Frankincense is almost 100 US dollars, but for 150, you get a whole kit which includes a bottle of Frankincense. It’s a big chunk, I know. It was for me, but since I’ve started using oils, I can’t go back to not using them.

    I use other brands, too, depending on what I’m using them for…

    If you’re going to take Frankincense internally, I do recommend YL because of the superior quality. But, if you are going to use essential oils for other purposes, there are more affordable options out there…

Love this recipe! I think this sounds amazing for anyone dealing with any type of stress. Good probiotics, high anti-oxidants and Frankincense to help with cellular (emotional, mental, physical and spiritual) damage.
I just got kefir grains yesterday! Can’t wait to try!

    Wow, thanks for sharing that, Beth!

    I haven’t gotten brave enough to make my own kefir yet, but it’s on my bucket list 🙂 Probiotics are really awesome! We went all flu season with no shots, no sickness by using kefir and also Thieves in the diffuser and on the little one’s feet 🙂

yum! i was on these for a little while, literally breakfast lunch and dinner for a few months heh. but they dont have a frozen section where i buy my produce and blueberries out of season are pfftt… btw… try adding a half a teaspoon of peanut butter… ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh my gosh.

howeverrr, i really started feeling better when i went 80/10/10 diet for a bit… i also started paying more attention to acid vs alkaline forming foods and because eating a giant salad is too much effort, i started making green juices… still working on perfecting it to how i like/whats available… but right now its…

3/4 med apples or half a pineapple
3/4 stalks celery with the leaves
half a cucumber
5-6 silverbeet leaves (i think you might call it chard – i find kale, just, no, do not like. lol.)
fistful of coriander
med lemon, whole
a reeeeeally big chunk of ginger
and sometimes 3/4 cloves of garlic… if i feel like i wont mind it…
makes just over a litre.

and when i cant be bothered mowing my lawn… dandelions and what i think you might call thistles! thats pretty fun actually hah.

i still like a steak and cheese pie tho 😀

I live in the Fraser Valley where we are surrounded by blueberry farms. Most of the growers are East Indian and they swear the blueberry being the best antioxidant. They say eating blueberries will improve not only your health but with men their virility, your complexion, mood. you name it.
I lived on a blueberry farm the second year after leaving JC, during the growing season I went out every morning and picked a bowl full of fresh blueberries and then took some on the road with me. Even the dogs loved them, as I walked the rows they were behind me eating all the berries off the lower branches. My old guy limped less and needed less pain meds and I felt the best I had felt in a long time. I buy frozen berries out of season and eat them with yogurt. Not as good but I swear between them and cranberries they are miracle food.

    You’re welcome, Teela! I had one just this morning, and I feel amazing (which is saying a lot since I indulged in a bit of vino last night) 😀
