Is this the title of the next epic toon movie starring Bugs Bunny?
Sorry, not a movie – but still epic.
The adjective of magic is bestowed upon the carrot because of the results seen by eating a raw carrot daily.
What results you say?
What I typically see is a huge reduction in PMS and hormonal symptoms and it happens fast. This could be anything from edema, cramping, and hot flashes or anything else associated with the cycle. From the male perspective it results in elimination and transit time on a regular schedule.
How is this possible? What is this wizardry?
The fiber in the carrot acts like an antibiotic and collects estrogen in the bile and bowel for elimination. If excess estrogen sits around too long it gets reabsorbed back into the system and into the blood and tissue. Unfortunately getting blood tests for estrogen levels won’t reveal what is in the tissues.
The carrot is not eaten for nutrient value. The carrot in its natural inhabitant sits in a damp environment and is resistant to bacteria. Even when you lay it on the kitchen counter for days the ability to resist bacteria is evident.
“But I’ll turn orange,” a client once responded.
This is the carotene in the carrot and typically collects in areas of thick skin like callouses on the hands. A way to reduce the amount of carotene ingested would be to wash the carrot and even better if it was grated first then washed. You can see the carotene come off in a paper napkin when you hold a peeled carrot in a paper napkin. The main reason it collects in some people is the inability of the liver and thyroid to convert it to vitamin A.
Remember the key is to have the carrot raw and not juiced.
Another option if you have allergy/issues with carrots would be cooked bamboo shoots. They serve the same function.
Here is a a quote from Ray Peat PHD:
“Besides avoiding foods containing fermentable fibers and starches that resist quick digestion, eating fibrous foods that contain antibacterial chemicals, such as bamboo shoots or raw carrots, helps to reduce endotoxin and serotonin. Frolkis, et al. (1989, 1984) found that it extended median and average lifespan of rats, beginning in old age (28 months) by 43% and 34%, respectively, when given in large quantities (equivalent to about a cup per day for humans) for ten days of each month.”

If you don’t want to eat it like Bugs then here is a nice recipe for a carrot salad.
-1 organic medium carrot peeled and grated
-2 tsp of melted coconut oil
-2 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
-1/4 cup of raisens
-sprinkle of white sea salt (amount according to craving)
– eye of newt (optional but does get the magic part) ;)
Good luck and let me know how it goes.
