Juice: 5 leaves of kale 1/2 head of green cabbage 1/2 head of loose-leafed lettuce
Process all ingredients through a juicer. Drink 30 minutes before an event that has you nervous. If stress and anxiety is persistent, drink on juice in the morning, and one in the evening. Kale, green cabbage, and loose-leafed lettuces together provide a sodium-potassium balance which keeps us centered. Also, these three contain an abundance of alkaline minerals, especially calcium -which has a calming effect on the body. Lettuces have a soporific quality and can even induce sleep when taken in large quantities.
Oxygen is a food. Stress and anxiety are associated with shallow breathing. Relieve stress by taking 10 deep breaths in the ratio of 1:4:2 as described in Lesson 22: Breathing (Pranayama), Action Steps.
