Dr. Campbell-McBride created the GAPS milkshakes for a multitude of situations. This is a brilliant drink and will help with all types of digestive disfunctions. It is especially recommended for constipation, blood sugar imbalances, problematic biofilms and parasites and people who are not absorbing nutrients.
A GAPS shake is a combination of juice blended with raw eggs and fermented cream (sour cream). Initially begin with about 1/2 cup a day and work up to 2 cups a day. Sensitive people should begin with 1-2 Tablespoons a day.
Juice: 1 carrot, 2-3 apples (or pineapple), 1 stick of celery, small wedge of beetroot and a small piece of cabbage. (You can also add a little lemon juice and some greens)
To the juice add 1-2 raw eggs (know your chickens!) and 4-5 Tablespoons of homemade raw sour cream. If you can’t use sour cream you need to have an equal amount of another fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil, any kind of animal fat, olive oil – don’t use other kinds of vegetable fats though), you can also make your own fermented coconut cream but don’t use coconut cream that has any additives (agar etc), you can make your own coconut cream from organic dessicated coconut. Be careful with coconut cream/oil if you have any mold/candida issues as coconut is very powerful against yeasts and you can get very strong die-off.
Blend the juice, eggs and fat with a hand-held mixer. Drink this mixture 2x a day on an empty stomach. First thing in the morning and in the afternoon. I generally make up enough juice for the whole day and then mix in the eggs and fat just before drinking.
The high fat content lubricates the bowel wall and softens the stool. The enzyme full juice stimulates the pancreatic juices. The protein from the eggs as well as the cabbage stimulates stomach acid production. The ratio of fat, sugar, protein is important.
It is easy to make you own sour cream, simply innoculate a pint (500ml) of (preferably raw) cream with 2 tablespoons of kefir, yogurt or creme fraiche. Let this mixture sit on the counter for 24 hours, and you will have your own homemade probiotic rich sour cream.
It is good to have the juice as clear as possible, especially at the beginning of the diet when your digestive system is very sensitive to raw fibre, so I usually strain the juice before using.
You can add other therapeutic ingredients, cod liver oil, ginger, celery, cucumber, carrot tops, mint, lettuces, beet and radish tops, bok choy, cabbage, etc.
Turmeric Juice: A Powerful Healing Beverage

A Recipe for Turmeric Juice: A Powerful Healing Beverage
By Chloe Park
When I lived in Bali, I fell in love with the Balinese-style turmeric juice, Jamu Kunyit.
Turmeric is known to be one of the most powerful healing herbs. It is great for bones and joints as it has anti-inflammatory properties. It prevents metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer.
Turmeric’s also a natural liver detoxifier and a kidney cleanser, and it speeds metabolism and aids in weight management. Plus it heals and alleviates conditions of depression, psoriasis, damaged skin, arthritis and more.
For these reasons, turmeric is ubiquitous both in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine.

Many years ago I worked in an Italian restaurant during the America’s cup races in New Zealand. One of our favorite desserts that summer was a light and creamy traditional zabaglione. This version, made with a coconut water reduction and honey instead of marsala and sugar is a real treat on a winter’s night.
Technically, a zabaglione is a caudle, a hot, wine-fortified drink made as a healing draught for a sick person. The noun later morphed into the verb “to coddle,” meaning “to treat with extreme or excessive care or kindness.” Which isn’t a bad way to describe how zabaglione makes me feel. –Zabaglione Love

This is a great way to keep your complexion lovely well into old age. The skin of the face improves with the help of the humidity and the temperature of a facial steam. This effect is intensified with the addition of either a mixture of herbs or from specific herbs for a certain purpose. This is recommended in particular for skin with large pores or impurities.

I recently came across this delicious and healing recipe for dandelion syrup. I have made dandelion wine before so I know how many dandelions you need to pick for such a recipe. It is best to have a lovely field with no dogs or pesticides anywhere near it. It is a lovely way to spend a spring day, picking lovely bright yellow dandelion blossoms, and preparing them to make syrup or jelly. I found this recipe on Ewa In the Garden’s website, she gives a good description of the wonderful properties of dandelion for detox, plus lots of lovely photos showing the various steps for preparing the syrup. I have changed her recipe slightly to use honey instead of sugar. Please follow this link to the original recipe.
Miso Soup For Radiation

I recently posted about the benefits of miso soup in cases of radiation poisoning. Miso soup is easy to make and is extra beneficial when made with the Japanese stock dashi because of the kelp (kombu) that is used when making that stock. More information on how to detoxify radiation poisoning and other toxic conditions here.
Variations of dashi can be made with only kombu or with an addition of shittake mushrooms. Kombu dashi has a lot of iodine from the seaweed and is helpful if you are exposed to radiation. The addition of traditionally made hatcho miso to your dashi stock has quite powerful radiation detoxing abilities. But commercial miso has also been found to work as well.
