Do you love chocolate? Have you had long struggles with depression and have dwelled a little too long in shadow land, experiencing endless dark nights of the soul? If your answer is YES, I celebrate your journey and hope you are open to giving Chocolate Green Healing a try. You have nothing to lose (except being stuck in low vibrational land without wanting to be there...), and a lot to win. You will receive endless physical, emotional, mental and spiritual-energetic gifts, you will see.
Cacao is a sacred healing plant. It is the seed of a tropical fruit tree. Theobroma Cacao, or “Food of the Gods,” is an ancient superfood that has been revered for centuries by cultures such as the Aztec, Maya and others. True chocolate is a health food. Popular sugary chocolate candy bars, loaded with GMO Soy Lecithin, processed sweeteners, dairy and artificial flavors which contribute to cavities, weight gain and diabetes are not. We receive all of chocolate’s incredible health benefits when we eat it raw, in its unheated state where its innate nutritional healing gifts are preserved.
Cacao is known to have a high antioxidant activity including: oligomeric procynanidins, resveratrol and the polyphenols catechin and epicatechin . Antioxidants are known to have an amazing capacity to fight, cancer, heart disease, aging and strengthen our immune system in general. Cacao is also charged with magnesium (magnesium relaxes muscles, improves peristalsis in the bowels and relaxes the heart and cardiovascular system), potassium, manganese, zinc, iron, and copper, as well with vitamin C, phenethylamine (PEA, the feel good neurotransmitter found in the brains of people who are in love!), Omega 6 fatty acids (which when heated become rancid and cause inflammation), anandamide (a neurotransmitter that makes you feel "good" while blocking feelings of pain and depression), tryptophan (a commonly deficient amino acid needed for normal growth in infants and nitrogen balance in adults. Our bodies cannot produce it, we only get it from our diet, and tryptophan helps make niacin and serotonin), serotonin, (a chemical created by the human body that works as a neurotransmitter responsible for maintaining mood balance, and its deficit leads to depression) and theobromine.
Theobromine is a cardiovascular stimulant that has little to no affect on the nervous system, it creates a slow release of energy throughout the day, unlike coffee's energy spike. Theobromine dilates blood vessels, naturally lowering blood pressure by taking strain off the heart, and increases nutrient uptake during digestion. So when raw cacao is combined with adaptogenic herbs ( and other live superfoods, raw cacao benefits and potentiates these other phytochemicals! And to top it off, theobromine kills streptococci mutans, one of the main types of bacteria responsible for tooth decay and improves asthmatic type conditions by opening up the lungs.
Superfoods and Superherbs
As I mentioned above, since raw cacao contains theobromine which dilates blood vessels and increases nutrient uptake during digestion, there is a special alchemy that happens when it unites with other deeply nourishing healing foods like greens, superfoods and super herbs.
Superfoods include foods that have a dozen or more unique properties, not just one or two. For example, the goji berry are a source of complete protein, immune-stimulating polysaccharides, liver-cleansing betaine, anti-aging sesquiterpenes, antioxidants, over twenty trace minerals, and much, much more.
Superherbs include herbs that have super tonic and adaptogenic properties as well as many other unique gifts. For example, the reishi mushroom helps support a healthy immune system, heart, lungs, and kidneys, and assists with rejuvenating brain and connective tissue.
Superfoods and Superherbs are deeply nourishing and healing. They are delicious nutrient dense foods, which can elevate our life force and balance our vibration.They can aid us in our journey to vibrant health by: strengthening our immune system, elevating serotonin production, enhancing our sexuality, and cleansing and alkalizing the body and building resiliency to life's unpredictable waves that can lead to living in continuous tension-stress. Superfoods and Superherbs meet and surpass our protein-vitamin-mineral-essential fatty acid-immune system-glyconutrient (essential polysaccharide sugar) requirements and many more. requirements, so much more.
Superfoods and Superherbs are essential keys to a vibrant nutrition because they deeply feed the brain, bones, muscles, skin, hair, nails, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, reproductive system, pancreas, and immune system, correct imbalances and help us remember how to listen to our body's true hungers and choose real food that can help us claim the vibrant health we deserve.
Including Superfoods and Superherbs in our diet can effortlessly release unnecessary weight, detoxify without swallowing any pills, just pleasing your tastebuds with amazingly tasting treats made with Cacao, Superfoods and Superhebs!
Cacao is a a sacred healing plant. Its magical union with Superfoods and Superherbs can be life changing. It gifts us with instant deep nutritional nourishment and vibrational alignment.
Green Cacao Therapy
Chocolate Green Healing is the name I chose to describe the healing foods that have helped me remember who I am and embracing a more vibrant and balanced physical, emotional, mental & spiritual health; specially finding a pleasurable and engaging way of moving through a deep seated genetic tendency toward depression.
The Superfoods and Superherbs in Green Cacao Therapy are those I have been intuitively drawn to: Cacao, Greens (green juices, the amazing algaes-spirulina-chlorella), Maca (white, red, black or gelatinized, dual exact-my favorite!), Goji berries and their extract, Mucuna Puriens, Reishi Maitake and Chaga Mushrooms, and amazing Superfood-Superherbs blends made preciously tending to the preservation of innate nutritional qualities and in high vibration. ( Healthforce Nutritionals™, Longevity Power Inc. and Edible Goddess are the only ones I highly recommend, because they feel vibrationally pure and my body responds with holistic bliss! Definitely different than many other maybe less expensive company brands, but, don't we deserve the best to be fully who we are?. What better investment is there than our vibrant health-beauty and life?). AND: coconut anything, essential fatty acids (hemp seeds and oil, flax DHA oil, evening primrose oil), Marine Phytoplankton, Hibiscus, Cinnamon, Turmeric, Licorice, Ginger, Cayenne, high mineral sea salt ( Celtic, Himalayan), and profound LOVE and belief in our right to be ALL WE ARE.
So... if you love chocolate and are curious about how it could be a healing friend in your path to vibrant physical-emotional-mental & spiritual health, you will definitely enjoy exploring the Green Chocolate Healing Path, where we unite sacred Cacao with Superfoods and Superherbs to receive its gift of instant deep nutritional nourishment and vibrational alignment.
