How Healthy is Your Breakfast Cereal?

A healthy breakfast means a bowl of cereal. Right? After all isn't this an American tradition? Nope. It’s actually a very recent marketing invention. A tiny mistake in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1870 changed the face of breakfast forever. Harvey Kellogg (recognize the name?) was the director of a popular health retreat. Kellogg was said to treat his guests with many bizarre experiments for health improvement. One of his invention was a whole grain corn breakfast cereal served ...

BOMBSHELL! Cholesterol Does NOT Cause Heart Disease

WHY do so many people eat a "healthy" diet yet have high cholesterol? What exactly is cholesterol, anyway? Is it as BAD, BAD, BAD as we hear? Cholesterol is a waxy substance produced by every cell of the body. It holds our cell walls firm. In fact, without cholesterol we would be soft and fall apart. One of cholesterol's roles in the body is to travel to inflamed areas to repair tiny breaks or lesions that irritate tissues, internal or external. For example, cholesterol makes a hard scab on ...

What Favorite Foods Convert to SUGAR in Your Blood?

Shall we do some MYTH BUSTING? We all know sugar is BAD. And whole foods are GOOD. Yep, we've got that.

Still Counting Calories & Carbs?

By Jane Barthelemy. Counting is an accepted way to measure nutrition. But how effective is it? Calorie and carb counts are based on measures over 100 years old, and vary tremendously depending on the soil and growing conditions. So in the unlikely event that we can estimate the nutritional value of what you put IN, the big question is - how much of that is absorbed by your body as nourishment? Then there's the fact that your body is smart. It is constantly swapping molecular nutrients, and your intestinal bacteria is a nutrient factory. So what you put IN doesn't equal what you receive. Calories and nutrition labels are wild estimates at best. The more relevant questions are - Is there any life force in your food, is it grown in healthy soil, and is it free of modern toxins? I wonder - why do we even count calories and nutrients going IN, if it's only a fraction of the picture?...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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,...

History of Breakfast, What Happened to Our Food?

By Jane Barthelemy.  In times of total uncertainty, we need to have a good laugh. What if you could trace our worst chronic diseases (and COVID-19 comorbidities) back to the discovery of the New World and industrialized food? Tongue in cheek, I'm not joking.
