Vegetable Oils: The Good, Bad and the Deadly

After years of listening to my body, I finally discovered I must avoid refined vegetable oils. Instead I must eat old-fashioned oils like butter, ghee, coconut, and pure unmixed Artisan olive oil (which by the way, is getting harder and harder to find.) Why is that? When I eat food with these cheap GMO vegetable oils, my body feels "funny", like it “can’t breathe”. It’s hard to describe. It feels like a brain fog, like my whole body is gummed up, as if the cells can’t release someth...

But please read on - - it's vitally important. Our food choices are an ...

5 Top Healthy Sweeteners

Top ratings go to 1) Raw Honey, 2) PureLo by Swanson, 3) Swerve Sweetener, 4) Lakanto, and 5) Raw Stevia leaves, the only healthy sweeteners I can find. My criterion are purity, stable blood sugar, and balanced metabolism. With a world epidemic of diabetes, obesity, and metabolic disorder, we need sweeteners that stop the sugar cycle in it's tracks. Sadly, grocery stores do not carry healthy sweeteners, so we buy them online. We don't really need sweeteners, but some of us got used to a ...

AVOID: Top 3 Foods of Inflammation & Heart Disease

Shall we play a game? In a small bowl mix together a few teaspoons sugar, a handful of any flour, and a splash of vegetable oil. Add a bit of water and stir. Let your slurry sit in a warm place for a few hours. It will harden into a perfect rubbery superglue. These three foods accumulate as sticky mucus in your digestion, especially if you're stressed, creating a kind of auto-immune inflammation response in which your body defends itself from YOU.

WIFI, Poor Sleep, and Dementia

Did you know that WiFi tells your brain that its DAYTIME? Yes. Many people cannot fall sleep with Wifi. Or they sleep poorly and don't know why. But when they turn off the Wifi before bed, immediately they enjoy refreshing deep sleep. Why? I suggest we just switch the Wifi OFF at night. Studies clearly show a medical link between Wifi, brain biorhythms, melatonin, poor sleep, and increased Alzheimer's risk. WiFi doesn’t cause immediate diagnosable illness. The damage happens slowly.

Do You Drink Enough Water? How to Improve Your Absorption

Most of us are slightly dehydrated. Aging is synonymous to dehydration. Lack of H2O shows up immediately in sagging skin, sluggish brain function, and especially in your moods. Even more interesting is that fluid is absorbed only if we MOVE the body! When there’s no aerobic movement at least once a day, there’s no circulation, no nourishment, no release of toxins, and no joy! It’s that simple. Every function in the body needs water. All our organs, energy flow, and even our thoughts ...
