Are there any foods are helpful (hunter) in reducing dark circles under the eyes?  I was thinking I could be lacking in certain vits and minerals... Any ideas?

Yeah, I usually sleep great and I always get my 8 hours or even more. I always drink alot of water, but also a lot of tea with a little bit of sugar with each cup. In all, my diet is fairly clean apart from the last month or so where I have been eating alot of chocolate..
  
Sugar is out from now on

Dark circles are liver issues.. maybe a liver cleanse ? eat way more greens or make green juices.. dandilion by the bushel full -if you can get organic ones- for 8 weeks every day.. dark spots on the skin will get lighter too...

BTD will make a big difference - over time.. get Swami if you can..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Hunters CAN have chocolate, just not the commercial stuff with milk and sugar and possibly chemical preservatives. Cocoa powder in hot water with agave and/or molasses makes a tasty treat, and/or get some unsweetened baking chocolate. You can eat the baking chocolate plain if you like  the dark, bitter flavor, or melt it and stir in a compliant sweetener, then let it cool and eat. You can also put a spoonful of cocoa powder into yerba mate or green tea.

Get creative. If you're truly craving chocolate, then you can enjoy the benefits of chocolate without the "avoid" additives, and it's likely to keep you from nibbling on the stuff you shouldn't be eating.

Ideally, you should be drinking green tea unsweetened, perhaps with some compliant juice added. But if you MUST have it sweet, use agave (beneficial) or honey (neutral) in it rather than sugar (avoid.) Honey is usually pretty easy to find. And you shouldn't be drinking black tea at all! If you find yourself out and about, with few good choices, drink water!

I had a brownish area around the eyes when  my liver was fatigued by wheat and gluten, nose and worse eye allergy then; since some times I was gluten and cow milk free ( sugar nearly 0) I cannot see the brownish area since many years. My liver was really acting as some enzymes were too high , though not as in a hepatitis

stop the black tea think of the all blacks and reduce sugar. get into drinking a good green tea.

eat compliantly - but sugar is the cause, whether its in the wrong type of chocolate or from wheat or whatever.

"British tea" is from china by the way lol

Regarding green juices for liver cleanse... Does anyone has any good recipes?

green foods concentrated in juice will matter no matter which one you like.. use only what is better the Neutral in the foods you can have.. you might be able to add carrots as well to make it tasty// but any effort will pay off.. start and practice to find one that you like.. I like bitter so dandelions is for me.. strong.. no more then 1/3rd glass at a time ...

I would support kidneys (liver via blood) and adrenals (stress, B vitamins, vitamin C, licorice). I like Hunter Activator (have a few SNPs that are O like). Unstresses me like magic.

Love kale, pineapple juice and apple-- sometimes I add ginger too.

I only use two leaves of kale, I use a blender and drink the veggie pulp.

well i tested the fruit and a little wheat the other day not a lot of any other sugar all week, big itches on legs and big dark circles under the eyes. went back to little fruit and very compliant and as it happens a half days (morning fast due to forgetting to take by new intrinsai supps) circles gone. and the itching on the lower legs (mainly but elsewhere too a little)

so i suppose my next question would be do you itch when you have dark circles? if not then that probably the wheat, and if that's the case

go sugar and fruit free for a day or two and see what happens, if you get a positive response you may need to look at your sugar/insulin/levels and perhaps pre diabetes, perhaps do overnight fasting glucose test, take a quantity of glucose in the morning and check blood levels.

haven't done one myself yet so check the correct protocols first, assuming you have access to blood sugar monitor, i bought one for a giggle, may prove to be useful as i may have to do the same test.

Another product you can buy instead of sugar, Gaz, is xylitol...low g.i., acts as a prebiotic, protects teeth from decay etc.

Andrea,
Please refresh my memory on black tea for BT A teachers. Why is it harmful?
