Natural Sports Drink Recipe

Most “Sports Drinks” on the market are loaded with sugar, dyes & preservatives. It is an excellent idea to replenish your electrolytes and other minerals to neutralize the lactic and other acids and toxins that will be released during strenuous exercise. However, you don’t want to undo all the good of your workout with overloading your body with crap afterwards!

Here is my recipe for an awesome all natural after workout sports drink with stuff you mostly have on hand already.

sports-drink

Ingredients:

2 – 4 oz Concord Grape Juice (If you suffer with High Blood Sugar stick to 2 ounces if like me you are prone to low blood sugar go with 4)

2 – 4 oz Pure Water (If you are prone to high blood sugar go with 4 ounces and 2 ounces if low blood sugar)

1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1 – 2 Teaspoon of Chlorophyll (2 if you have high blood sugar and 1 if you have low)

Don’t get legalistic about your natural sports drink!  Here are some things to keep in mind about what is in it and why.

If you don’t happen to have the Chlorophyll on hand (at least not yet) you can do without it.  The chlorophyll is about helping you detoxify and cleanse the toxins thrown off by exercising.  It also is excellent for circulation and cardiovascular health.  Not to mention it is almost chemically identical to your body’s blood except it has magnesium at its center instead of iron.

You can alternate any other fruit juice with any other fairly sweet juice you have on hand.  No matter what you use…  Try to make it is clean & natural as possible.  It is about replenishing your body with natural sugars following your workout.  The concord grape is my preferred because it is also very nourishing for the blood.  If fact, Dr. Bernard Jensen one of the world’s most pronounced Naturopaths said in one of his books…  “Drinking concord grape juice and raw egg is the closest thing to a nutritional blood transfusion as one can get”.

Now here’s the deal about the blood sugar issue.  Both water & green drinks of any kind will make the body flush sugars naturally.  In fact this is why the body will naturally be thirsty all of the time when someone has diabetes.  It is the body’s innate wisdom to try and correct itself.  Obviously when someone is prone to high blood sugars they should limit the amount of sugars they take in but not ALL SUGARS are created equally.  You will often hear me say when working with anyone with high sugars…  You DID NOT get diabetes from eating too many carrots, apples or beets!

Bach's Own Words...

"They cure not by attacking the disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our higher nature, in the presence of which disease melts away as snow in the sunshine. There is no true healing unless there is a change in outlook, peace of mind and inner happiness."

Bach's Own Words...

"The actions of certain flowers, shrubs, and trees that grow in the wild raise our vibrations and open our channels for the reception of the Spiritual Self to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault that is causing the harm"

About Dr. Darla Nofziger, ND

Her strong passion (AKA Aspie Obsession) for Bach's Remedies began while attending a clinical practitioners course call Practicum.  It was one of the course modules required to earn her Certified Natural Health Professional.  At the time, she didn't feel this small amount of training of the Bach remedies adequately prepared her for working with clients.  So she decided to use muscle testing to work up the remedies.  But, as the remedies came up she studied whatever came up thoroughly.  It was not long before she had an intimate knowledge of each flower essence.  Further, that she had a real life situational example of what each one looked like in the real world.  Plus it quickly became a client favorite.  Especially working with new clients.  She could quickly tell people she had never met before, their greatest emotional hangups & personality traits based on what came up.  To this day, it is still one of her favorite ways to work.
