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 ...

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?

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! The Yellow Emperor Huangdi (2717 -2599 BCE) said: “In the old days, smart people prevented disease before it began, just as a good leader averts war before it starts. If someone digs a well only when thirsty, or forges weapons during battle, one might ask: Aren’t these actions far too late to be effective?”  Health is Listening ...

Brain Balancing, the Science Behind it

Brain synchronization may hold the key to the mysteries of human awareness. By balancing both left and right brain cortices, we are able to utilize our WHOLE BRAIN. We merge big-picture awareness on the right with precise logic on the left. In a healthy human, this process is as natural as breathing. Forget extremes - the key is to live in the center, the middle path, ignited with passion. By balancing the dual polarities of Nature equally, we discover our true potential to experience higher ...

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.

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 ...

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? ...
