Doctor Mehmet Oz's morning green drink ingredients are listed here for your convenience:

2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
1 head of celery
1/2 inch or teaspoon ginger root
1 bunch parsley
2 apples
Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Doctor Oz uses this green drink in the morning for breakfast.

There are several cooling foods in this drink. In fact everything in this drink is cooling to the body, except the teaspoon of ginger root.

Because the drink contains a lot of watery vegetables, it is dampness forming in the human body, and therefore on a long-term can cause spleen difficulties according to TCM (traditional chinese medicine.) The celery head is drying according to TCM, so it can balance some aspects of the drink. Dampness forming is like inviting a cold damp day into your body. It would feel sluggish. Dampness is one of the pathological evils that can invade the human body according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. However, as pointed out here, we could also drink more dampness forming foods. Oils are dampness forming as well as nuts. In order to balance this drink better, it is suggested to use cinnamon, nutmeg, or other warming spices.

The juice of 1 lime, and 1/2 lemon make it detoxifying to the liver and also extra cooling.

Care should be taken by people consuming this drink since it looks to be so cooling and detoxifying that it could cause digestive problems in the long-term. For example, if you are using this drink for a while, and then you find you cannot digest lettuce, and you find bits of food in the stool then your digestive balance has been severely disrupted.

This is a good drink to use in the summer months. However, the vibrational compatibility of this raw food drink should be carefully examined for the winter months.

For example, it may only be used once a week, once every 10 days, once every 2 weeks, or once every 3 weeks.
