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. Four-time Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Linus ...

By Jane Barthelemy. We LOVE drizzling tons of maple syrup on our gluten-free pancakes! After all, it's pure sap from maple trees. Right? Sorry, the answer is NO!  But maple syrup is unprocessed? Right? The answer is NO!  But maple syrup low in sugar? Right? NO NO NO! But maple won't acidify my body like sugar, right?  SORRY, IT ACIDIFIES EXACTLY THE SAME AS SUGAR!  Oh dear! As usual, the devil is in the details. This won't be my most popular post. Ha Ha! Here goes!

We can easily maintain an alkaline pH if we first understand the root factors that affect it. And these might surprise you! I do not wish to downplay the importance of fresh foods, optimal digest...

Top 24 Anti-Cancer Foods – Hooray!

By Jane Barthelemy. Do you enjoy green tea, apples, and blackberries? Or would you rather buy your Epigallocatechin-3 EGCG extract as softgels from Walmart? Take ginger root for example. Wouldn't it be simpler to just eat raw ginger? But dried, powdered Chinese Gingerol capsules are available at Rite Aid, Walmart, and Amazon. It's laughable! The list goes on. As pharma producers race to invent new supplements, a recent study just made our healthy choices easier! Ha ha! Here are ...

Chronic Disease is Just Nutrients Lost in Processed Food

Four-time Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Linus Pauling once said: “Every sickness, every ailment, and every disease can be traced back to an organic trace mineral deficiency.” And it’s still true. What is ONE SINGLE thing that could end chronic disease? All of them: Diabetes, cancer, hypertension, heart disease, malnutrition, etc? It is THIS: Eat whole foods, unrefined. Instead of processed grains, eat dark rice and whole wheat flour. Forget white rice and white flour. This study below shows ...

Ten years ago I suffered a terrible loss, and the emotional stress led to total digestive collapse. I'll save you the details, except to say I couldn't digest anything anymore.

I met Will, a 6' 6" weight lifter who enjoyed clean food. It ...

Uh Oh! Coconut Sugar is 100% Sugar!

Terrible news! Coconut sugar is 100% sugar! You won't feel a glycemic rush, as coconut sugar is relatively low in glucose. But here's the rub: The rest of the sugar is fructose! It's 100% carbs! Just like HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup), fructose is a liver toxin that causes high cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes (Yup, our top epidemics). Fructose doesn't give you a glycemic jolt. Instead it quietly and insidiously fills your liver with bad lipid (fat) deposits and makes you want ...

Dietary Roots of Hypertension Increase Covid Risk?

Hello friends, This week I'd like to share with you an exciting new study that crossed my desk from the Salk Institute, a highly respected medical institute. It was founded by Jonas Salk, virologist, medical researcher, and developer of the first polio vaccine. Many pundits are hailing the study as proof that the vaccines are dangerous, and that may be true. While I choose not to take the "vaxine", my purpose today is different. It's always about DIET, DIET, DIET. The study published April 30 ...

Will the true Paleo Diet please stand up?

What is the authentic Paleo Diet? Myriad interpretations, diverse rules, and disagreements surround the oldest diet on the planet. Other "Paleo experts" relax the rules to the point where we lose the benefits altogether. Perhaps the whole point of Paleo is to be inspired by our ancestral diet, to take the positive points as wisdom and leave the rest. Many people ask me questions: What kind of flour should I use? Are sweeteners that raise blood sugar Paleo-approved? Why aren't grains and legumes ...

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. ...

How Much Life Force is in Your Food?

Is your food glowing with life force? Or is it lifeless? When a food has just been picked, it's ALIVE with life force and nutrients! Life force is vital energy or Qi. After harvesting, the life force gradually declines. At the very last stage of decline, microbes take over, it disintegrates, dies and gets recycled back into the earth. When food is processed at high heat, it loses life force, so high temperature baking, frying, and irradiation cause a loss in nutrients. When raw foods are dried or dehydrated,...
