How To Cleanse Without Greens

20150421_073412

Updated on May 9, 2019

In response to recent posts on cleansing with freshly pressed juices and green smoothies, a number of people have written to me (benkim@drbenkim.com) asking for a way to cleanse without a small mountain of leafy greens.

As long as you don't have issues with blood sugar and insulin regulation, you can experience a solid colon cleanse as well as a systemic cleanse of all of your cells with a number of regimens that aren't "greens-centric" - our Apple Cleanse would be one such protocol if you skip the small amount of greens with your dinner meal as suggested.

But for those who want a super simple cleanse to follow, I have long found a 2 or 3 day mono diet of fresh papaya to be highly effective and easy to get through. Read more about How To Cleanse Without Greens

 

A Simple Routine To Improve Knee Function

For decades, the most common orthopedic surgery performed in developed countries has been knee arthroscopy. This makes sense, as 1 in 4 people 50 and over can expect to experience one or more symptoms of degenerative knee disease. Read more about A Simple Routine To Improve Knee Function

 

Masks, Hats, and Sleeves to Protect Against Sunburn

Updated on May 6, 2019

When I was 19, I developed a skin depigmentation disorder called vitiligo, something I've written about on a few occasions over the years.

Now in my 40s, I have come to embrace the many life lessons that living with vitiligo has gifted me. As I'm guessing others can attest to, when one is markedly different in physical appearance, every moment spent around others is an opportunity to be more than just our outer shell. Every moment also offers the potential of meeting those who treat others for who they are, not just what they appear to be. Read more about Masks, Hats, and Sleeves to Protect Against Sunburn

 

A Game that Develops Reaction Time, Agility, Balance, and Hand-Eye Coordination

Updated on May 2, 2019

A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon the work of Patrick Herzog, a functional therapist in Germany who makes use of an Indiaca when training his clients.

I was fascinated by this "floating pin," as I called it, and reached out to Patrick to find out what it was and where to get it. Read more about A Game that Develops Reaction Time, Agility, Balance, and Hand-Eye Coordination

 

A Natural Approach to Overcoming Excessive Sweating | Hyperhidrosis

Updated on May 1, 2019

Back in high school, I remember a student who did her science fair project on her sweaty hands. My memory is not good enough to remember the specifics of what she talked about that day, but I do remember her walking around the classroom, giving all of us a chance to see and feel the sweat that literally dripped off her hands. She said that it was a genetic problem, and that her hands sweated almost all of the time. Read more about A Natural Approach to Overcoming Excessive Sweating | Hyperhidrosis

 

River, By Joni Mitchell

Though generally thought of as a song for the Christmas season, Joni Mitchell's River gives comfort and empathy all year long and through any season of our lives. We don't have to hit the road or board a jet plane. All we need do to get away for a while is put on our headphones and spend a little time with Joni. Or with Sarah's version below. :)
