David Wolfe, world-renowned raw foodist, just recently noted 10 extremely foods that can be eaten frequently with great implications for females’s health (and I would argue guys also). As he advises us, ‘if you lose your wellness, you’ve lost everything’. Check out these natural food solutions for women so you can assist gain back or enhance your wellness.

Superfoods are fairly simply nutrient dense and complex foods that provide an exponential punch in comparison to foods commonly eaten daily. Using them regularly will drastically change your wellness.

Here are a couple of that can truly speed up healing your body, or simply fortify it.

Medicinal Mushrooms

As priced estimate by David Wolfe, ‘High in extremely immune-enhancing polysaccharides such as beta glucans, medical mushrooms are one of the most intelligent adaptogenic herbs/superfoods in the world. Reishi mushroom (likewise called Ganoderma), the ‘mushroom of immortality,’ is a body immune system nutrient that is ideal for almost anyone to take, even children. Reishi is the most well studied herb in the history of the world. Reishi has antioxidant properties that protect the body from radiation and free radicals. It hinders germs, viruses, treats growths and its adaptogenic quality protects the body versus tension. It likewise treats heart problem and hypertension.’

In my 4 years of handling Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma) personally, and in others, I have actually discovered that it is one of the very best ‘all around’ food remedies you can consider healing, regeneration, and energy. It’s ability to balance and normalize all the physical functions makes it a should for anyone who is severe about recovering their body and taking their health to another level.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

David states ‘These are specifically essential for females since they carry out a variety of functions in the body from stabilizing hormones to improving skin and hair.’

Good omega 3 fatty acids are one of those food remedies that are generally devoid in today’s world, and are needed for correct brain function also. Generally related to fish intake, it has actually ended up being more difficult to get a clean source due to mercury levels. Nevertheless, there are other forms such as flax, hemp and chia that can assist you stay clear of that problem if you are not comfortable with your source. Check out labels and scouting for those who particularly show they have went by way of a filtration process.


David correctly notes ‘These vitamins are highly correlated with our capability to deal with anxiety. B-12 gets consumed in our body rapidly simply by the stresses and toxicity discovered in our environment on a daily basis.’

As a population gorging ourselves on traditional grains we get plenty of the lower B’s (although, when not organic this is suspect), but we miss out on getting the extremely important B-12. An incredibly food not on this list, however excellent in B-Vitamins including 12, is bee pollen which need to be kept in mind due to its remarkable recovery homes.

Stress does diminish B-Vitamins, so it has ended up being much more crucial to supplement in order to keep those levels at an appropriate range.


One of David’s favorite food solutions, he notes that ‘this adaptogenic very food boosts energy, stamina, strength and libido. Dried maca powder consists of even more than 10 % protein, nearly 20 amino acids, and 7 essential amino acids. It provides incredible hormone regulation from the top down, supporting the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, the thyroid, and the adrenals. Maca is also rich in B Vitamins.’

I have actually eaten maca for many years, and it is outstanding for strength and energy. It is also an amazing adaptogen, and is very beneficial for assisting stabilize the hormones. You may wish to strongly consider this as one of your food remedies before, while on, and after maternity.


David references Donna Gates, the author of the ‘The Body Ecology Diet’, who ‘advocates consuming a mix of good quality probiotics as well as cultured and fermented foods like coconut water kefir, while minimizing sugar intake. This will certainly cause enhanced immunity as the beneficial bacteria in your body work as part of the body immune system.’

Probiotics have actually ended up being crucial to everyones health, consisting of women. Because 80 % of individuals are handling an imbalance within their inner ecosystem, and 30 % have an extreme issue, a quality source of probiotics is vital in order for appropriate healing in the body and maintain health.

Coconut kefir is magic when it comes to food treatments and stabilizing your digestive tract system, and the Body Ecology diet is an exceptional resource to get ideas and dishes on how you can get a great probiotic into your system through food and beverage, every single day.

Start making coconut kefir or get an excellent quality probiotic.


‘Astragalus has antioxidants that protects the cell against damage triggered by complimentary radicals and is used to protect and support the body’s immune system, including enhancing the power of the lungs.’

This is another excellent adaptogen, and usually can be found in superfood formulations.

Goji Berries

David notes ‘goji berries are considereded a longevity, strength-building, and potency food of the greatest order. This superfood consists of 18 kinds of amino acids, all 8 necessary amino acids, up to 21 trace minerals, high amounts of anti-oxidants, iron, polysaccharides, B and E vitamins, and many other nutrients. They are really high in antioxidants, particularly eyesight improving zeaxanthin.’

I use goji berries all the time in smoothie mixes. They are really recovering to the liver, and have a wide selection of nutrients and minerals to assist resolve insufficiencies you are undoubtedly dealing with due to poor quality food supply and other ecological aspects.


Arguably David’s preferred super food ‘cacao is the greatest antioxidant food on the planet, the # 1 source of magnesium, iron, chromium, manganese and is likewise incredibly high in PEA. Cacao’s theobromine adds cardio support. Raw chocolate balances brain chemistry, develops strong bones, is a natural aphrodisiac, and raises your state of mind’.

Cacao is an effective very food, however has actually been bastardized and put into items that ruin it’s potency like traditional chocolate bars. If you can discover pure cacao, you will keep in mind that it tastes a bit more bitter, however if balanced with other components properly, you will certainly discover it is scrumptious and MUCH better for you than the common fare.

Cacao is excellent healing superfood as it raises your state of mind, and creates happiness.

Here is an exceptional example of what excellent chocolate looks and tastes like!

Aloe Vera

‘The gel of raw aloe vera contains vitamins A, C, and E, the minerals sulfur, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium, as well as antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, enzymes, sterols, lignans, and most significantly, polysaccharides. The polysaccharides in aloe vera have a specific lubricating result on the joints, brain, nerves and the skin. They likewise have immuno-modulating effects, allowing the body to overcome back persistent viral, nanobacterial and fungal infections.’

Aloe Vera is one of those food remedies that are excellent for intestinal health. It is antibacterial and really healing to the digestive tract lining, which is a significant plus considering most people are living with an abundance of bad germs in their system, and an inflamed intestinal tract wall as an outcome of it. Quite simply, aloe vera is a must in your superfoods list.
