History of Breakfast – What Happened to Our Food?

In times of total uncertainty, we need a good laugh! What if you could trace our modern diseases back to the discovery of the New World and industrialized food? Tongue in cheek, I'm not joking. Let's just trace the history of our beloved first meal of the day, in light of world money and food addictions. Yep. Especially sugar. For sure, breakfast wasn’t always corn flakes or toast with jam. Nowadays, what we eat is determined much by personal habit, but at what cost? Why are ALL the top ...

The Libido Diet: Asian Medicine Secrets

What are we doing to nourish it? Now's the time for us to support our own balanced health alongside ...

Why I Became Paleo-Vegetarian

I am a NATURE GIRL. There’s a perfection in NATURE. The complex eco-system of LIFE on our planet is so wondrous, especially the way it is able to maintain BALANCE. Anything leftover, Nature intelligently recycles into herself with ants or bacterial decomposition back into the Earth. So, even if our human activities twist Nature out of whack, the pendulum of fate will always miraculously bring it back to a balanced state. Ha Ha! I'm waiting impatiently for that right now! Why did I become ...

AVOID! Toxic “Natural Flavors”

Beware! When I see “Natural flavors” on a food ingredient label, right away I feel worried, anxious, unprotected, and suspicious.

How can I protect myself from unhealthy ingredients not even listed on the label? Oh dear! The word "Natural" has no meaning. There are thousands of so-called “Natural flavors” used in processed foods ...

What Are Autumn Medicinal Foods?

It's amazing! 4,500 years ago, the oldest book on medicine suggests we "Heal the body before illness can come." A truly cutting-edge, breakthrough idea!

Are You Taking Your Mineral Drops?

People with diabetes often have a deficiency of chromium and zinc. Low magnesium has been linked to myocardial ischemia and cancer. Microbiome imbalance is everywhere inside us and around us.
