Our common understanding of the immune system is mostly based on traditional beliefs, our doctors advice, our parents, the media, pharma ads, and anecdotal sources. This article explores Chinese medicine on the immune system. Moreover, an exciting new world of ...

25 Ways to Increase Your Oxygenation

By Jane Barthelemy. In the wake of concern for preventative measures for the corona virus, many forward-thinking people are focusing on the root issue of maximizing blood oxygen. In a healthy environment our cells are rich in oxygen, rejuvenated every night as we sleep. Optimum oxygen levels will give you more energy, enhanced brain function, and lower stress. You can overcome fatigue easily, you look and feel younger. A low oxygen environment deprives the cells of essential nutrients needed for energy to clean and rebuild. As a result our body fluids and blood can become dirty and toxic. ...

I’m Writing a New Book! A Bhutan Travel Cookbook!

I'm writing another cookbook! It's big news and a major change in my life. But this will be much more than a cookbook.

Myth-Busting “Natural” Sweeteners. It’s about FRUCTOSE, darlin’!

BEWARE when a sweetener claims to be "natural" or "low glycemic". Don't be fooled. Sugar is sugar no matter what form it's in. Here's a little-known secret to help you see clearly through marketing hype: The two primary sugars in foods are glucose and fructose. Most sweeteners are a mixture of both. Both fructose and glucose taste fabulously delicious! Yet they're both the toxic root of obesity and metabolic mayhem in the body. Together these two sugars cause or exacerbate most of our modern chronic diseases. ...

Xylitol, NOT a low calorie sweetener!

By Jane Barthelemy. Is Xylitol a healthy sweetener? Touted as a safe sugar substitute for diabetics in snacks, chewing gum, and baking, Xylitol is NOT the low-calorie sweetener it's cracked up to be. Just look at the nutrition label and you'll see it's loaded with calories and carbs. I don't accept that stripping birch bark and thus killing the tree is sustainable or earth-friendly. How is Xylitol produced? How does it affect the body? You deserve to know the truth to make an informed choice. ...

10 Amazing Health Benefits of Walking

Trekking on the Camino in Spain, I learned an important lesson. I walked 125 km of the trail in 8 days, which means about 15 km per day. Some days it was 25 km, some days just 8. My body was weary, however my mind and spirit felt total joy and freedom! My skeleton and musculature were gently realigned each day. Even better, I enjoyed a time of peace, a chance to be with myself away from WiFi, computer, and cell phone. Yes, I was tired, however when I arrived in Santiago de Compostela and the Finisterre ocean at the end of the trip, I felt AWESOME! ...

Maple Syrup NOT Healthy! The devil is in the details.

Is Your Tummy Happy?

I used to dream of having a flat tummy. Now I have one, and yes, it makes me happy. I know how easy it is to do. The biggest step is to stop following the crowd.

Cancer Maps and Glyphosate in the USA – Zach Bush, MD

Zach Bush, MD is a brilliant cancer researcher connecting the dots in our health issues. I'm sharing his 4-min. video, because I believe he's put his finger on the problem. Cancer maps in the USA can be directly matched to runoff from thousands of farms into the Mississippi River and its tributaries, all the way down to the dead zones in the Gulf. Glyphosate in the runoff, in the rain, and in our water is affecting every American's health. ...

In this heavily researched article I'm offering a multi-leveled approach to causes and solutions to the belly bulge. This won't be my most popular post. ...

Turmeric: Health Benefits or Hype?

I believe perhaps the modern world is finally rediscovering the value of this plant, used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine....

Warning! GMO-Free Foods Contain Glyphosate

Eating GMO-free? That's great! But if non-GMO is your main guide, here's a wake-up call flying under the radar. Surprise! A whole new generation of fake foods certified GMO-free has just arrived in your favorite grocery. Learn these four food types and how to recognize them:
  1. GMO foods are to be avoided of course. To learn them see the graphic below. These contain genetically modified ingredients, Glyphosate and the most chemicals.
  2. Glyphosate foods are toxic everyday foods, some GMO, some non-GMO that are raised with toxic chemicals allowed by the USDA. (Remember that Glyphosate or worse pesticides and herbicides are in all non-organic foods.) 
  3. Certified Non-GMO foods with Glyphosate - Bad News. A whole new generation of non-GMO foods with Glyphosate is getting certified. The public is demanding non-GMO, so these toxic foods are getting approved. I see them filling grocery shelves and flying under the radar. Marketed as healthy, they contain plenty of herbicides and pesticides. Don't buy them. Let food manufacturers know we want CLEAN ORGANIC FOOD. 
  4. Organic foods are free of GMO's, Glyphosate and other farming chemicals. Hooray! For health and long life buy Organic. You may pay a bit more, but you'll save even more on health costs, and benefit with a healthy mind and body.

However today, instead of that age old topic, I will outline the two most important aspects of water for it to truly clean and benefit your body tissues. ...
