How Much Sugar Does Your Body Need?

Vegetable Oils: The Good, Bad and the Deadly

After years of listening to my body, I finally discovered I must avoid refined vegetable oils. Instead I must eat old-fashioned oils like butter, ghee, coconut, and pure unmixed Artisan olive oil (which by the way, is getting harder and harder to find.) Why is that? When I eat food with these cheap GMO vegetable oils, my body feels "funny", like it “can’t breathe”. It’s hard to describe. It feels like a brain fog, like my whole body is gummed up, as if the cells can’t release someth...

Say Good-Bye to a Middle-Age Belly in 10 Steps

To live a long and healthy life, one of the most important steps is to keep your intestines clean. Certain foods clog up our body and lead to weight gain. An expanded belly can be caused by visceral fat that accumulates in and around the internal organs. We also know that most adults hold from 5 to 20 pounds of indigestible waste (POOP) in the belly. Yikes! I'm betting this will NOT be my most popular post - ha ha! But please read on - - it's vitally important. Our food choices are an ...

AVOID! Toxic “Natural Flavors”

By Jane Barthelemy.  When I see “Natural flavors” on a food label, I feel immediately anxious, unprotected, and suspicious. I conjure up bizarre images of chemical experiments in a food laboratory. What is the truth about “Natural Flavors”? What does the term mean? How can I protect myself...

5 Top Healthy Sweeteners

Top ratings go to 1) Raw Honey, 2) PureLo by Swanson, 3) Swerve Sweetener, 4) Lakanto, and 5) Raw Stevia leaves, the only healthy sweeteners I can find. My criterion are purity, stable blood sugar, and balanced metabolism. With a world epidemic of diabetes, obesity, and metabolic disorder, we need sweeteners that stop the sugar cycle in it's tracks. Sadly, grocery stores do not carry healthy sweeteners, so we buy them online. We don't really need sweeteners, but some of us got used to a ...

Happiness is feeling an even metabolism, smooth digestion every day, and a flat tummy. I'm going to tell you how to do it right now. But sadly, this won't be my most ...

Maple Syrup NOT Healthy! The devil is in the details.

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 ...

There are myriad causes and cures for the expanding midriff. It's a poorly understood topic that affects millions. In this heavily researched article I'm offering a multi-leveled approach to causes and solutions to the expanded midriff. ...

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. ...

7 Most Addictive Foods, How to be free of bad habits

By Jane Barthelemy. Starting over means we can  question our old patterns, lifestyle, and especially habitual thoughts. When stress is high, there's greater need to be vigilant about your health and balance. We often choose  momentary joy that harms our long-term health. If you notice yourself craving "comfort foods" like cookies, energy bars, or chips, you're already familiar with that strange unconscious appeal. Something about that food makes you always want more. This is a specific neurological response purposely created to charm you into consuming it. Oh yes! Countless studies show that certain foods stimulate ...

Did you know there are more Suicides than Covid deaths in the world?

Greetings to you all from Bali, where all is well. I'm so excited to unveil my new video series. I'm a peaceful person, however when backed into a corner, as we all are now, I take action.

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. ...

10 Amazing Health Benefits of Walking

Trekking on the Camino in Spain, I learned an important lesson. I walked 125 km of the trail in 8 days, which means about 15 km per day. Some days it was 25 km, some days just 8. My body was weary, however my mind and spirit felt total joy and freedom! My skeleton and musculature were gently realigned each day. Even better, I enjoyed a time of peace, a chance to be with myself away from WiFi, computer, and cell phone. Yes, I was tired, however when I arrived in Santiago de Compostela and the Finisterre ocean at the end of the trip, I felt AWESOME! ...

Is GMO-free Safe to Eat? NO! Many non-GMO foods harvested with Glyphosate!

Is GMO-free food safe? The shocking answer is NO. Sadly, GMO isn't our only health risk. Monsanto's toxic pesticides and herbicides like Glyphosate are widely used on both GMO and non-GMO foods. To be safe and chemical-free, we need to eat 100% Organic. This article shows surprising new scientific research, clearly linking many common chronic diseases to Glyphosate. ...
