I’ve read and seen many articles warning readers of the posioning dangers of alkaloids from using greens in our Green Smoothies. While it’s true that greens can give us mild poisoning, it really doesn’t happen easily.
This article by Victoria Boutenko clearly explains when alkaloids can become harmful for our bodies. Here she explains that alkaloids are actually present in most greens to prevent its extinction. What you should know though is that, poisoning from alkaloids, though mild, is very easy to avoid – it’s just a matter of simply rotating your greens.
I often receive questions about oxalic acid, an alkaloid in spinach. It is important to understand that all greens have a small amount of alkaloids, and these alkaloids exist to keep edible plants from being eaten into extinction. Spinach has oxalic acid, lettuce …

Ever since the Green Smoothies have become the latest health craze, many articles have come out giving one or two negative issues of it. Not spared is the talk that blending reduces the benefits of fiber. Well, this article by Green Smoothie advocate clearly dispels that rumour and even supports it by scientific findings showing how ingesting finely ground fiber in our digestive system increases nutrient absorption, and reduces bloating, heartburn, and constipation.
Lately I have come across several statements about blending destroying or reducing the benefits of fiber. … This study found that both fine and coarse fiber have only 2% difference in performance, favoring the smaller fiber.
Let me try to explain the process of how to break terror barriers to expand your comfort zone.
First step in the psychological process of experiencing growth is called bondage. In spite of the mental ability to choose, a person uses the energy flowing into him to think usual thoughts, creating the same internal images and, as a consequence, gets the same type of results.
Then comes a new intriguing idea, an idea out of the ordinary! The person then starts to reason. The idea gets accepted on the intellectual level, but, it is still far from getting accepted on the emotional level.
The idea only remains in the intellectual level because it simply does not resonate with the paradigm prevailing in the subconscious mind. The person, therefore, continues to get the same type of results as before because it is the subconscious that dominates our thoughts and decisions. Even though the person does not get the results he wants, he is still comfortable with where he is because he has been living in that same quality of life every day, probably even for most of his life.
The thing is, he can’t just dismiss this idea. It continues to come back and wants attention. He starts to get emotionally involved. The moment the idea is impressed on the old mind conditioning, the electrical system in the person’s body goes haywire and puts him into a mixed vibration. Worry, fear and anxiety strikes so fast and hard that it puts the person in a complicated state of emotions.
This is common in people and is a remnant from our ancient life out in the wild. When facing a threat of some kind, it is natural for the body to react as if it was facing a wild lion on the prairies. All sorts of stressful emotions and bodily reactions appears, and tries to get your attention.
At this stage, development and growth ceases. Everything is put on high alert to prepare for survival through the ‘fight or flight’ defense mechanism of the person. A part of the brain called the amygdala even screams at you to do something!
Why? The new idea is pushing this person forward but the old conditioning, the paradigm, is driving him back. The conflict is unbearable. Persons in this state can’t improve their lives, They don’t want to go back, yet, they can’t stay where they are. It is therefore important to look into the why? Why do I want to do this? Why do I want to plunge forward? Does it lead me in the direction of my goals? Does it hurt anyone? Will it improve my life? If the answer to those questions is a resounding yes; then, you should push yourself the terror barrier!
A lack of understanding of what is going on internally often causes the person to retreat to familiar territory. He quickly bounces off the terror barrier all the way back to bondage. The person rationalizes to himself why it is a good place to be there. It’s comfortable and it’s familiar. It comes naturally for him to choose to settle in that situation.
But, as Abraham Maslow states, ‘You will have a choice here in front of the terror barrier: step forward into growth, or you will step back into safety! Reach for the freedom which becomes your new comfort zone. You will evolve in the process. You will come out on the other side stronger and more prepared for the next round of challenge. You won’t rid yourself of the fear, though. Facing the terror barrier on another occasion will still cause you to experience fear, but it is easier to handle it this time.’
My mentor puts it this way: Do it afraid!

This week has certainly been extraordinary! A few days ago, my son, David, had tripped and hurt his wrist. On a scale of 10, the pain level was at 7-8 everytime he bent his wrist and the pain continued to linger. On Saturday morning he was worried about not being able to play the violin during his class. We tapped a bit, and the pain sank to 5. We tapped a few rounds more and the pain went down to 1. One more tapping round and it was virtually gone. He was laughing sheepishly and exclaimed happily, “everyone should do this more often”! David came home after a 2-hour lesson of violin with his hand working perfectly fine and feeling no pain at all from his accident.
I then wanted to do some e-book reviewing when the lights started to flicker and the power went out. It was that way for almost the entire day. With the brownout, I unfortunately ended the day falling from the stairs. I suffered some bruises and a badly twisted foot. I decided I would have to refrain from working at the Health Exhibition the following day, Sunday.
But, guess what? Bandaged foot high, 15 minutes of tapping and a good night’s sleep made me wake up with the foot as good as new! I still felt some pressure on the top and inside, but there was no pain. Thus, I was still able to attend the Health Exhibition. And, what’s even better is, it stayed that way all day! In the evening when I arrived home and released my feet from the sturdy shoes I had worn, I had a little reminder of pain, but nothing more.
EFT never ceases to amaze me. What happened to me and my son, David, was an excellent example to all who wanted to know if EFT is effective for pain relief. I just love EFT Tapping!
