Still Counting Calories & Carbs?

We love to measure things. We hope by counting Nutrition Facts we can know how GOOD a food is for us. But how effective is it? What about the vast nutritional gap between the three realms of food: Organic vs. "Conventional" vs. GMO? What's the effect of chemicals on complete nutrition? Obviously, this will vary depending on the type of seed, minerals and microbes in the soil, growing conditions, and freshness of the food. Ha Ha! Did you know that calorie and carb counts are based on average ...

Why Would Anyone Censor the Web?

I'm passionately interested in health, and I use the internet for research. While I don't consider all web info reliable, many studies and research articles are fine sources. I use a variety of search engines: Google, DuckDuckGo, Bing, Yandex, Brave, and Gibiru. I like to compare results on different search engines - and recently noticed huge differences! What's really happening there? I'm not sure yet, but my eyes are open, so I'm sharing it with you all. How would a search engine try to ...

Top 24 Delicious Foods that Dissolve Cancer Stem Cells!

Do you enjoy green tea, apples, and blackberries? Or would you rather buy online a bottle of Epigallocatechin-3 EGCG softgels from Walmart? Take ginger root for example. Wouldn't it be far more delicious to just chomp on real ginger? But now you can go online to Amazon or RiteAid to buy capsules of pure dried ginger powder from China. It's laughable! The list goes on. As Big Pharma races to patent expensive new anti-cancer drugs, a recent study just made our healthy choices easier! Ha ...

Best SEARCH ENGINES for Independent Thinkers

    We live in a world on fire with differing opinions. What do you look for in a search engine? If you're intent on seeing all sides of an issue to make up your own mind, you'd better be VERY selective. Are you guided by your own inner compass and integrity? Or do you prefer a "sanitized" search that follows the government or MSM party line?  I'm keenly interested in health. When I'm doing in-depth research, which search engine should I use? I value my personal thoughts. I ...

Maple Syrup LOADED with SUGAR! The devil is in the details.

We LOVE to drizzle gobs of maple syrup on Paleo Pancakes! Because it's pure sap from maple trees - Right?  Uh Oh!  Sorry, the answer is NO!  But maple syrup is unprocessed - Right? The answer is again NO!  Maple syrup low in sugar - Right? NO NO NO! Maple won't acidify my body pH like sugar.  SORRY, IT ACIDIFIES THE SAME AS SUGAR!  As usual, the devil is in the details. This won't be my most popular post. Ha Ha! Here goes! Here's the ELEPHANT in the Room! As we generously smother our ...

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. But WHY do people eating a whole food diet per the government food pyramid, still end up with high cholesterol and heart disease? Maybe it's not exactly BAD foods vs. GOOD foods. What about nutritious whole foods that CONVERT to sugar in the body? They may not TASTE sweet, but we know they quickly turn into SUGAR: Wheat, Rice, Corn, Potatoes, All Grains, All Roots. Cl...

Addicted to coffee? A healthy brew!

85% of Americans use caffeine daily. We drink 400 million cups of Joe every day. Our coffee obsession is a roaring $30 billion industry! However, if you're an independent soul like me that wants to be truly healthy, here's a delicious alternative. I'll cut to the chase: Coffee is addictive.

How to Nourish Erotic Nature: Longevity Secrets from Chinese Medicine

What does ancient Daoism say about cultivating healthy libido and sensuality? We all come from sex. Our sexuality is one of our most powerful resources. Yet this energy is often confusing, distracting, suppressed, untrained, and almost completely misunderstood in modern culture. I would like to share cutting-edge, scientific and spiritual insights that can show how your erotic nature can work FOR you. Some foods and activities promote libido and long life. But some cause our health and ...

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. Much of this comes from chemicals in industrial food and soil. Minerals are often a forgotten element, yet they are fundamental requirements for life. Years ago, our soil was rich in nutrients and beneficial microbes. Modern chemical farming kills soil microbes and depletes minerals in plants. To make ...

Vegetable Oils: Good, Bad and Deadly

Have you ever wondered what's at the root of our world cancer epidemic? Like all disease, there are many contributing factors. However, the elephant in the room I'm highlighting today is our modern vegetable oils. Do you remember before the 1950’s, butter and lard were the go-to cooking fats in America. Our human diet has changed radically in the past 100 years, not always for the best. Now, GMO vegetable oils are everywhere, in many prepared foods, and so cheap that everyone thinks it's ...

Best Depression Med? 100% Chocolate!

Pure 100% chocolate is my favorite food in the world. And for good reason. Pure unsweetened cacao gives me a lift! It is higher in antioxidants than grapes, blueberries, or green tea. Maybe that’s why ancient cultures called it “Food of the Gods.” Who needs meds when we have the REAL STUFF? But there's a catch! If it has sugar added, it's partly toxic. Why ruin the healthiest food by mixing it with the most unhealthy toxin? Sugar acidifies the body and causes inflammation. Cacao, when ...

Change Your Thoughts, Heal Your Body

How are our thoughts linked to our physical ailments? Can a habitual thought pattern make our health better or worse? Can a specific thought or emotion be associated with a particular disease? How do the mind, our beliefs, and emotions impact our health? Why do some diseases have "no known cause", such as Parkinson's, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, and Chronic Fatigue? I wonder what thought patterns are linked to them? Then if we change these thoughts at their root, can we then heal the disease? ...

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. His intelligent sleuthing reveals 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. Glyphosa...
