The Health Benefits of Cherries

New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted Text

Said to date as far back as 300 b.c., cherries were named after the Turkish town of Cerasus. Throughout the centuries, cherry trees have been lauded for their deliciously succulent fruit as well as for their beauty. There are two main groups of cherries – sweet and sour. The larger of the two are the firm, heart-shaped sweet cherries. Cherries are right for all blood types and delicious for eating out of hand and can also be cooked – but what you may not know about cherries is they have a host of health benefits.

My DH has suffered from arthritis and chronic nerve pain in lower back and thighs making cardio exercise difficult, which he always loved. He is an O+ hunter. My grandfather told him about cherries many years ago. He finally began eating them on a regular basis this last year and saw real an improvement! He won't go a day without eating them now.
We are planting a cherry tree this year along side our other fruit and almond trees.

I drink cherry juice which is made from a tart montmorency cherry concentrate.  Brownwood Acres....comes in a big bottle with a pump. I've taken their Cherryflex pills which are said to be naturally high in melatonin.  I can't find fresh or even organic frozen cherries.

cajun, are you referring to the the tart cherries or the dark sweet bing cherries?

For most of my life, cherries were a luxury & not eaten too often.  In my older years, I am sure enjoying cherry juice & cherries. I almost feel guilty for the indulgence, but this is healthy indulgence! Yum!

BTW, the Greek word for cherries is kerasia, which sounds like that Turkish town. What things we keep learning!

Are you finding fresh cherries in Illinois this time of year or speaking about eating them in season?

I noticed some of the comments on eating cherries was from type O's. You guys are lucky, I've always loved eating cherries, and I was under the impression they were good for you. Since I started this program 6 months ago, I don't think I've had any though, my swami says it's black dot avoid. Guess I could on a rare occasion since it's a black dot but it's one of those, that I don't understand why it's avoid...

Chloe: We found some in a fruit market the other day. I am sure they are from the Southern hemisphere, but it was nice to have some.  Cherry juice is available widely now.  Remember the years when about the only juice was orange juice?  Am I glad there are so many choices now!!

But normally fresh cherries are not around this time of year. Some time ago, you could only find them for a couple of weeks the first of July. Now the 'season' is longer. I doubt the quality is as good, but we can eat cherries more often.

AZ: I think they were a dot for me or just neutral, but I have been drinking cherry juice anyway without apparent problems.  If I drink enough of it or eat enough cherries, my injured toe feels better, so it helps joints.

Our computer is so old that I cannot access my SWAMI for now, so I am not sure of the rating for cherries. I have memorized most of what I eat, so I think I am eating properly for my SWAMI with a few cheats.  I think that cheating on heavier foods is worse than cheating on lighter foods like fruits & veggies which I sometimes do.  Yes, I confess!

Chloe,
Dark sweet cherries. We buy the R.W. Knudsen 100% dark cherry juice juice, Trader Joes dark cherry juice from concentrate, Trader Joe's dried Montmorency cherries , Target's frozen dark cherries, and loca fresh organic dark sweet cherries when in season (coming in a couple of months!). We are always searching for organic frozen.
My DH previously purchased the ones from Chile but they are not fresh tasting, obviously, and who knows what processes they go through before getting to us...

Cherries are right for all blood types...

And yet they're black dot on my SWAMI.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I have also noticed that some things that are OK for all blood types become either black dots or actual avoids on SWAMI results for various individuals. And some things that were avoids for everyone, like coconut oil, become good things for various individuals.   (Still no one gets pork, though......)

It makes sense to me that a truly individualized diet would make those finer distinctions.  It does become harder to "talk food" with newbies though.  But what the heck, I followed the regular BTD for almost 6 years before doing the SWAMI and it worked pretty doggone well for me.  I think the SWAMI will do better for my old body in the long run though.





6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!
