Juice recipe helped my nausea

The hungries have taken over! I’ve been hungry all week, and not just hungry, but starving! I’ve noticed that very shortly after I feel that hunger pang, I’m feeling sick.

Feeling hungry is a fairly new sensation for me. I usually do not recognize when I’m hungry because I never “feel” hunger. I’m told that it is a combination of focus and sensory.

I am not processing that hunger feeling, or am misinterpreting or flat out missing the signs because I am focused on something else. I usually only identify my need to eat something when I become incredible cranky and easily overloaded.

“Quick, get Mom a chocolate bar,
she’s flying around in her broomstick.”

Not eating can quickly bring on a meltdown.

I’ve been feeling particularly crappy that past few days…sick,no energy, lazy, lazy, lazy. And let’s not forget hungry, but I’ve also not been drinking my green veggie juices for the past few days either.

After dragging myself into the kitchen,I snatched some goodies out of the fridge and this is what I juiced…

My new anti-nausea concoction, I mean juice recipe.

3 carrots
4 celery stalks
1 cucumber (I never realized how much juice comes out of one cucumber)
1 apple
1 orange
1 lemon

The juice was refreshing, and I felt much better after drinking it. My nausea was gone. Before I found that this was the solution for my nausea, I was recommended to look into the idea of medical marijuana. This is said to help with conditions like Epilepsy, Glaucoma, Cancer and even nausea. I felt like I had tried everything else already, so there was no harm in trying. If this is something you want to look into, sites like fldispensaries.com would be good to look into if you are serious about trying this method out for your nausea. It did take me a while to figure out what worked for me, but now I think I know the solution.

I felt good enough to add a pepperoni pizza hot pocket to my snack…yum.

Well, so much for eating a healthy snack, now where did that jar of peanut butter run off to?
