Very Berry Smoothie
Reason to Drink: 1. Blueberries – one of the highest anti-oxidant fruits – very helpful in quenching inflammation and free radicals 2. Black Cherry Concentrate – breaks up uric acid crystals and balances PH (helpful for arthritic pain – especially gout) 3. Cod Liver Oil is an Omega 3 fatty acid, (see Anti-Inflammatory page) 4. Coconut Oil is excellent food for your thyroid (low thyroid function is a problem for a lot of people with chronic pain) 5. Romaine Lettuce – pulls excess water from your tissues and helps your PH to become more alkaline

Recipe Notes

*Try to use as little sweetener as possible – you want it to taste good but try to cut back on your sugar consumption every chance you get. Sugar feeds inflammation. The sweeteners above are less likely to make you hurt but they can still be used too much.
