Is there a cleansing/detoxing program out there that's perfect for Type A's? If so, what are they?

Is it possible to just eat a couple of dried figs instead of the fig powder? I really do love figs! Or for some reason must it be the powdered form? thanks.

Well, here is the ingrediants for my favorite kind...I always get from TJ's and they are delish!

ingrediants: Unsulfured Turkish Figs


that is all there is. So any advantage at all to powdered figs?  I am sure that these are far more enjoyable!

Here's some information on figs....I'm sure they will assist in helping with detoxing
the body. Perhaps its the seeds (which are broken down in a powdered form) are difficult for some people with digestive disorders to tolerate....So, I'm presuming
if you tolerate figs, go ahead and eat some if they're okay for your blood type
or genotype.

Figs are seasonal fruits that are found in the western parts of Asia. However, dried figs are always available. The figs tree is a member of mulberry family.

Health benefits of figs can be attributed to the presence of minerals and vitamins in them. Figs contain vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, potassium and chlorine.

A few of its health benefits include:

Prevent constipation: There are 5 grams of fiber per three-fig serving. So, it helps in healthy bowel function and prevents constipation.

Helps to reduce weight: The fiber in figs also helps to reduce weight and is recommended for obese people.

Lower cholesterol: Figs contain Pectin, a soluble fiber. When fiber goes through the digestive system, it mops up globes of cholesterol and carries them out of body.

Prevent coronary heart disease: Dried figs contain phenol, Omega-3 and Omega-6. These fatty acids reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Prevent colon cancer: The presence of fiber helps to mop up and usher out cancer causing substances.

Protection against post-menopausal breast cancer: Fiber content in figs give protection against breast cancer.

Good for diabetic patients: The American Diabetes Association recommends figs for a high fiber treat. Fig leaves reduce the amount of insulin needed by diabetic patients who have to take insulin injection. Fig is rich in Potassium. Potassium helps to control blood sugar. Fig leaves have anti-diabetic properties

Prevention of hypertension: People used to take more sodium in the form of salt. Low potassium and high sodium level may lead to hypertension. Figs are high in potassium but low in sodium. So, it helps to avoid hypertension.

Strengthens bones: Figs are rich in Calcium. Calcium helps to strengthen bones.

People having high calcium diet may be affected by increased urinary calcium loss.
Potassium content in figs helps to avoid that.

Prevent macular degeneration: Vision loss in older people is due to macular degeneration. Fruits and figs generally are good for avoiding this condition.

Relief for throat: The high mucilage content in figs, helps to heal and protect sore throats.

Figs are quite useful in various respiratory disorders including whooping cough and asthma. Since they are also good for digestion, they help in treating constipation, indigestion, stomach ache, etc. Fig is also good for fever, earache, boils, abscesses, venereal diseases and is excellent for the liver. Fig is a highly alkaline food, therefore helps to regulate the pH of the body. Figs are rich in flavonoids and polyphenols. These are antioxidants, which prevent the damage caused by free radicals. Fig is known for its soothing and laxative properties. Figs are low in fat and sugar.

Figs and I are tight, tight, tight! I love them, too. The dried figs, not fresh ones. Eww. Fresh figs have a weird texture that I just can't get past .


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.
