The Lemon-Garlic Mixture Recipe That Chris Wark (Chris Beat Cancer) Recommends



To your living health!


My husband and I are both edging 70, and while we have the odd age-expected ache or pain or fallen hair or swollen ankels or whatever, we have avoided many of the BIG Diseases: Heart Disease, diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Cancer-- but we have had family with these diseases and there is a good chance that we will have something like this hit at some time.  That is the way of the world these days, is it not?

So, to be proactive and preventative, we believe that "Food is Our Medicine" and we adhere to a Whole Food/Plant-Based way of eating as much as possible.  We also watch a lot of those health seminars that mesh with our way of thinking that plants/herbs are the answer-- or at least our first rule of order when we feel ill.  We loved the Chris Beat Cancer series because, well, who wouldn't?  Chris is a charming young man with a friendly, compassionate mission to help others learn about how they too can beat cancer without (or only as a sideline) chemo or radiation.

Recently he talked about a lemon-garlic mixture that worked for one of his clients.  The friend took this mix every day for about 14 months-- worked up to taking 3 Tablespoons of the mix over the course of a day-- and at the end of the 14 months: NO TUMORS!

Well, we thought, if it is that powerful at killing tumors, it is certainly going to be powerful in preventing them in the first place?

We are not doctors or scientists of any certification, but it seemed logical to us that this mix would be something we could happily build into our regular regimen every morning.

At first we tried to take it 'straight' on an empty stomach-- but just one teaspoon full of the mooshy sour-bitter liquid made me feel like I was going to have a heart attack.  I'm not kidding.

So, because we are allowing ourselves some licence since we don't actually have tumors (that we know of) and decided that we would put the puree into our smoothies.  That has worked just great for us.  The lemony-garlic flavour really enhances the other flavours in a vital way, as strange as it might sound to have garlic in a Green Smoothie.

THE BACK STORY ABOUT LEMONS AND GARLIC

Okay, this is the worst possible pseudo-junk-science explanation you will ever get, but let's get on with the recipe okay?  You can look up the synergistic qualities of Lemons and Garlic elsewhere on the web.  I am just going to say that each of them-- the perky little citrus Lemon and the bold little garlic crowns-- pack a lot of antibiotic. phytonutrient punch.

Garlic contains the strong organosulphur compounds called Allcin (yes, sounds like the girl's name).  In a clinical trial, extracted allicin (i.e., the amount you would find in about 20 cloves of garlic) was shown to prevent the common cold.

The Lemon  is a powerhouse.  Vitamin C, fiber and various phytonutrients in the lemon make for a fortress against some forms of Heart Disease, Kidney Stones, Anemia, Obesity and some of the compounds in lemons have been shown to "... prevent... malignant tumors from developing in the tongues, lungs and colons of rodents".  

So, yes, let's try this out.  If you have concerns, please do your due-diligence and speak to your trusted health provider.

INGREDIENTS
3 healthy, organic Lemons (small)
6 Garlic crowns or however you think equal the weight of 3 lemons (you can weigh each).  The ideal is to have them be the same weight.
Apple Cider Vinegar (doesn't need to be the expensive Organic brand-- this is for washing)

PREPARATION AND METHOD

1.  Immerse the lemons in water to cover, and add about 1/4 C. of Apple Cider Vinegar and put aside for the time that you will spend preparing the Garlic.



2.  Smash the garlic to make the peel go quickly. Yes it seems like a violent idea, but it really works to process the garlic quickly.  Then peel.  See the video below to see how chefs do it.

3. Cut up the clean lemons into 1/4s or 1/8s.  Be sure to leave the skin on, but get rid of seeds.  They might be okay to consume, but they are SOOO bitter.

4. Put Lemons and Garlic in a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  You may need to add a little filtered water if your lemon is not very juicy.

5. Spoon the creamy mix into an ice cube tray.  Freeze.  Put into a medium size baggy and use one a day in your smoothie.  Or, you can just put the mix into a jar with a lid in the fridge and use a teaspoon per person each day.

Gathering Stinging Nettles: Tools include scissors, bag, and GLOVES!  (or buy at your local whole foods store)
I am at the height of my locavore yearnings right now. I want to eat only from the abundance of the nearby (within a 100-mile radius). I am inspired by the Dervaes family in Pasadena who grow 6000 pounds of food on their 1/5 acre property.

If, right now, I were to eat only what edibles I could glean from our 1/3 of an acre and what I have left over in the fridge from last season, we could eat the following: frozen blackberries, rosemary, thyme, chives, kale, grape leaves, oregano, some lettuce, blueberries (soon), parsley, aloe vera (leaves for green smoothies), nettles (yes, my son seeded some), mushrooms, sprouts, and dandelions. I guess there would be other leaves as well.

Moving slightly afield, if I were ovo-vegetarian, I’m sure my dear neighbor would sell me some eggs from his free range chickens (escorted everywhere by their possessive rooster master). And my local fave health food store has a number of locavore products in stock. We can also buy fantastic raw honey that is locally produced, and in season we have grapes, plums, cherries, figs, apples, and all matter of vegetables and nuts right in our neighborhood.

But what I would have to give up forever (or while I reside here)? Young coconut, coconut oil, all the oils actually, chia seed, quinoa, chickpeas, chocolate, stevia (I bought a plant but I doubt that it will provide what we need for more than a month or so), avocado, sweet potatoes, rice, organic corn, pineapple, guava, and other tropical fruits.

Is it possible? Of course. Is it probable? Well, perhaps only during the harvest season here, just a window of time when there is a glut of ripe juicy fruits and fresh organic garden veggies. I’ll try the locavore experience then…
