When is a Search Engine NOT a Search Engine?

I value my personal thoughts. The process by which I form conclusions is unique and intelligent. I'd like my thoughts to be independent, unsullied by commercial goals. I use the internet as a library for factual health research. Sometimes I find subjective, opinion-based "science", when my searches for medical information are "guided" or skewed by pharmaceutical interests. "Seeding" ideas is manipulative and dangerous. It goes contrary to my belief that we think independently and are responsible to heal our own bodies. ...

Rice is the #1 primary staple food for over half the people in the world – more than 3.5 billion people depend on it for nutrition. So maybe it's important.

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. This article examines the undeniable history of our beloved first meal, 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?

You guessed it: Diabetes, Hypertension, High blood pressure, Heart disease, Alzheimer's & Dementia, Arthritis & Osteoporosis, Obesity, Inflammation, and more.

Myth-Busting “Natural” Sweeteners. It’s about FRUCTOSE, darlin’!

BEWARE when a sweetener claims to be "natural" or "low glycemic". Don't be fooled. Sugar is sugar no matter what form it's in. Here's a little-known secret to help you see clearly through marketing hype: The two primary sugars in foods are glucose and fructose. Most sweeteners are a mixture of both. Both fructose and glucose taste fabulously delicious! Yet they're both the toxic root of obesity and metabolic mayhem in the body. Together these two sugars cause or exacerbate most of our modern chronic diseases. ...

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. ...

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.

Turmeric: Health Benefits or Hype?

Turmeric is all the rage. It's in everything from smoothies to chai, curries, and of course Golden Milk. Turmeric is packed with earthy, pungent flavor.

Warning! GMO-Free Foods Contain Glyphosate

Eating GMO-free? That's great! But if non-GMO is your main guide, here's a wake-up call flying under the radar. Surprise! A whole new generation of fake foods certified GMO-free has just arrived in your favorite grocery. Learn these four food types and how to recognize them:
  1. GMO foods are to be avoided of course. To learn them see the graphic below. These contain genetically modified ingredients, Glyphosate and the most chemicals.
  2. Glyphosate foods are toxic everyday foods, some GMO, some non-GMO that are raised with toxic chemicals allowed by the USDA. (Remember that Glyphosate or worse pesticides and herbicides are in all non-organic foods.) 
  3. Certified Non-GMO foods with Glyphosate - Bad News. A whole new generation of non-GMO foods with Glyphosate is getting certified. The public is demanding non-GMO, so these toxic foods are getting approved. I see them filling grocery shelves and flying under the radar. Marketed as healthy, they contain plenty of herbicides and pesticides. Don't buy them. Let food manufacturers know we want CLEAN ORGANIC FOOD. 
  4. Organic foods are free of GMO's, Glyphosate and other farming chemicals. Hooray! For health and long life buy Organic. You may pay a bit more, but you'll save even more on health costs, and benefit with a healthy mind and body.

If we can change the thoughts at their root, can we then heal the disease? Louise Hays left us a legacy of tools to heal ourselves. One ...
