Dr. Ama’s Favorite Salad Dressing Recipe (and mine as well)

“The ‘Jenzer dressing’ or ‘Mrs. Jenzer’s salad dressing’ has been going on green salads in my home since before I was born.  We literally had this dressing or a version of this salad dressing every day at my house with our dinner greens. It was tradition, in my Swiss family to always have a salad at the end of every dinner.”

– Dr. Ama

Salad Dressing
1/8th cup organic mustard
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil
Herbamare to taste (optional) — This is a game changer!

Mix together in a glass jar and store in fridge for up to 2 weeks although it will be gone before that! 

If you’ve never tried Herbamare seasoning, it truly makes everything taste better and is a great substitute for salt.

Broccoli Sprouts

Broccoli sprouts are loaded with Sulforaphane, which has been shown in vitro studies to have anticancer effects against PROSTATE, BREAST, and BLADDER cancers. It also protects the skin from UV radiation.

Broccoli sprouts have also been found to help reduce Helicobacter pylori induced gastritis, PROTECT against oxidative stress-induced upper airway disease and against oxidative DNA damage.

Sleep

Nasal breathing has been shown to increase nitric oxide production by up to 25%. Nitric oxide promotes blood flow, improved memory, cell to cell communication and general cardiovascular wellness.

Nasal breathing promotes oral health. A dry mouth from mouth breathing promotes cavities because our teeth are not being bathed in saliva throughout the night as they should be. Saliva enables tooth remineralization and optimal oral pH.

  • Mouth breathers are more like to have sleep disorders and attention hyperactivity disorder.
  • Nasal breathing freshens our breath.
  • Nasal breathing positively changes neurochemical dynamics in our brain making sleep more restorative and enhancing overall well-being.

Detox

Sauna therapy has many benefits, including

  • Increased growth hormone 
  • Reduced protein degradation   
  • Increased insulin sensitivity, and increased brain-derived neurotrophic factors, crucial for brain health.

Cell Phone Cases

Several leading doctors and scientists have stated cell phone radiation and radiation from other personal electronic devices is linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, behavioral problems, asthma, insomnia, autism, childhood obesity, cardiac stress, and ADD. 

Here are some steps we can all take to reduce our exposure:

  • Keep your phone and other devices on airplane mode
  • Use your speaker phone and avoid direct contact to skin
  • Keep your phone out of your pocket and clothing as much as possible
  • Minimize your children’s exposure to electronic devices and try to create a zero direct WIFI exposure environment for your kids.
  • Use a corded phone whenever accessible
  • Avoid using your laptop or tablet on your lap

Since smart phones have become such a normal and expected part of life, getting a SafeSleeve is a great idea to further reduce exposure.

Clean Air and Pure Water

IQ Air Purifier 
Air Quality is so HUGE! Even more so for our kiddos.

Consider the following: When you turn on your furnace, air conditioner or exhaust fans, your home may become negatively pressurized, an effect that causes indoor air to suck in pollutants from basements, wall cavities, attics and crawl spaces.

TO PREVENT THIS, keep all interior doors open and crack one window on each floor when furnace or fans are running. Change furnace filters when you see grime buildup or once every six months.

Berkey Water Purifier
Berkey water purifiers are my go-to at home and in the office, because they do a great job of removing most of the worst contaminants in our water supply at a very small price tag. They also do not require electricity and don’t remove any of the beneficial minerals from the water.

Berkey water filters remove VOCs, bacteria, chemicals, fluoride (when you add a fluoride filter), chlorine, chloramines, nitrates, nitrites, parasites, and other heavy metals. 

I recommend getting the fluoride filter add-on if you are on city water.

Recipes for Health – Acute Immunity Mixer and Wet Sock Treatment

When cold or flu symptoms try to get you down, strike back with the following recipes for health.

I’ve used these simple at-home remedies for years with great success and I believe they can help keep you and your family healthy.

Acute Immunity Mixer
1 teaspoon shredded Raw ginger
1 lemon (preferably organic)
1-2 cloves of garlic (depends on size of cloves)
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon of honey (preferably Manuka but at least Raw)

Blend mixture. Drink 2-3x per day! If the concoction is too intense, you can add water.

Wet sock treatment
Supplies: 
1 pair of cotton socks
1 pair of thick wool socks
2 sets of sweats or pajamas

Directions:
1. Soak a pair of cotton socks in water, wring out and place in freezer.
2. Drink a concentrated ginger tea. Take a hot bath for 5-10 minutes.
3. Dry off.
4. Place ice-cold socks on feet. Then cover with thick wool socks. Put on the first set of pajamas. Go directly to bed. Place the second set of pajamas next to the bed. Avoid getting chilled.
5. Wear the socks overnight. During the night, you may wake up drenched in sweat. If so, change into the dry pajamas, but leave on the socks. You will find that the wet cotton socks will be dry in the morning.
