Did you know that okra is a rich source of beta-carotene, B-Complex vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium and sodium? It is an very hydrating food due to its rich electrolyte content and it helps preserve the body's balance of fluids which is necessary for nerve impulse transmission. The pectin in okra is known to lower blood cholesterol levels.

Because okra is very alkaline, it helps to neutralize acids and provides a temporary protect coating for the digestive tract. It has a mild laxative effect as it lubricates the the large intestine. For centuries okra has been used to treat lung inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, sore throat, ulcers and as a remedy in keeping the joints limber. Topically, an okra poultice can be applied to heal burns, soothe poison ivy & psorasis, and okra juice is suggested as a gargle for sore throats. (Who knew??)
I had never eaten raw okra until I changed up my diet. I was actually kind of scared to try it raw. I've found that if you get young, tender okra (no longer than 4 inches long), it is really good. I have sliced it into salads, I have tossed it into a combination of fresh tomatoes, corn and onions w/ a little olive oil, salt & pepper (yum). I have also sliced it, tossed it with olive oil and dredged it in a little mixture of almond & flax meal, salt & pepper and dehydrated it a bit for a "faux" fried okra.

I am going to keep trying this.  I believe I got some relief and stretching to help the sciatic pain.  Thank you for sharing this.

Dr. Kelley was the first chiropractor I had ever gone to for adjustments. I now go to a different chiropractor. Dr. Kelley has limited hours, which is fine for some people. I noticed that when he would go to adjust me, even if the adjustment didn't work, or pop, he would act as if it did and move on. My new chiropractor doesn't do that, if the adjustment didn't work, or pop, then my new chiropractor feels the area and does the adjustment again. Dr. Kelley will take 5 minutes or less to adjust me and then I'm out the door. My new chiropractor adjusts and massages and takes about 30 minutes trying to work on my pain.
