This is one of Masako’s favorites. Packed with everything you need for luxuriant and healthy skin, this herbal cereal not only corrects many skin problems, but is also safe to eat everyday for those who want to keep their skin looking healthy and vibrant.
Made up of brown rice, powdered soy beans, Job’s Tears, black sesame, Gouji berries, and apricot kernels, this healing cereal promotes nutrient rich skin, in texture, moisture, and color. It also helps heal acne, by clearing heat and draining excess fluid.
The ingredients have a special affinity to the Lung & Large Intestine organ & meridian networks, those in charge of maintaining healthy skin according to Chinese medicine. Therefore, this cereal has the added benefit of promoting healthy respiration and bowel movements as well.
Enjoy yours with a spoonful of honey for your next breakfast!
For those of you who might not know, I am an avid martial artist. So much so, I have devoted 20 years of my life to it’s study and practice.
While I was living in Japan, I had a keen interest in the legendary phantom warriors, known as Ninja. They were said to have been able to perform super-human feats and have physical conditioning and health like no other. Interestingly, they were master herbalists, as their country side became home to many warrior physicians who had fled China in search of a better life.
In my research, I came across a copy of an old ninja manuscript that talks about herbal and food remedies of this amazing group of families. Being interested in Life Cultivation and Longevity, I copied this text for my collection.
The Ninja’s Secret is the base mixture of foods which they built their special diet upon. This super-food not only promotes optimum health and longevity, it also can help strengthen the immune system, resolve edema, prevent osteoporosis and arthritis, speed up healing of traumatic injuries, strengthen muscles, supplement the Lung, Liver, and Kidney function, help one achieve their optimum body weight, and can even prevent graying hair!
It is one of my staple foods as it can be eaten for any meal of the day. Just add some tofu, miso, any type of leafy green vegetable, or umeboshi and you’ve got one of the healthiest meals you can imagine!
