Wax was first applied to the skins of fruits and vegetables for longer shelf life hundreds of years ago. Today, that tradition has drastically changed with a new generation of chemicals and compounds.
When you buy non-organic produce from the grocery store, you are getting additional chemical coatings. The FDA admits that these edible coatings have been associated with a number of problems, ” [Produce coatings] can result in tissue destruction and the production of substances that contribute to off-flavors and off-odors, as well as the potential for growth of foodborne pathogens such as Clostridium botulinum.”
What is gluten and why you should know about it!
Almost everywhere you go nowadays, you hear the “gluten-free” catch-phrase, and you may be wondering what it is all about. IS it just a fad? Or is it real? What is gluten?
“Gluten” is the general term for a mixture of tiny protein fragments found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley, spelt, faro, and kamut.
Why does gluten intolerance seem to be suddenly, steadily increasing? What happened?
Clear your arteries of heart attack-causing plaque and effortlessly build bones of steel! Don’t fall prey to those studies that say calcium supplements don’t prevent bone loss and osteoporosis.
“Calcium is the cornerstone mineral in bones. However, calcium consumption does not build bones. Countries with the highest dietary calcium consumption (US, Canada, & Scandinavian countries) have the highest rates of osteoporosis.” Natural News
What are you missing for proper calcium absorption? Why does the calcium go to coat your arteries and solidify your joints? Why does this seem to be more of a problem for modern man? When Dr. Weston A. Price in the late 1930’s located primitive tribes that had never met the white man before, he found them to have perfectly spaced, snow white teeth and the elderly people were strong and healthy. What did they know that we have forgotten?

1-Good Food – A nourished body = a healthy and smart kid!
In order to navigate the twists and turns of school, nutrition is the key to healthy, smart kids. Kids should understand the difference between good foods and bad foods. Many use the traffic light model with success. “Green light foods are good for you. Eat as much of them as you like. These include fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, nuts, organic meats, and dairy. Red light foods should not be eaten, like corn syrup, diet foods with Nutrasweet, caffeine products, and foods with artificial colors and flavors. Yellow light foods are those you should slow down on, like desserts, processed white flour products, and juice.”
You may not know this but the Gulf Stream is no longer circulating its warm waters to Europe (Since 28 of May 2010; confirmed by NASA satellite). The reason for this is that Mother Nature does not approve of the way the BP oil spill has been handled with toxic flocking agents – sinking the oil, rather than using microbes to eat up the oil.
We are now keeping all this excess heat here in the US. This is why we are experiencing record breaking heat waves from Southern California right on through Middle America, and to the East coast. When was the last time you saw 100°F temperatures across Mid America? This is why I decided to write an article about avoiding and remedying heat stroke and heat exhaustion. This is particularly for the elderly and those who have never experienced 100°F plus weather.
Hundreds of illnesses are caused by chronic inflammation. Rather than recognizing and correcting the sources of inflammation, modern medicine has classified them as unique and unrelated, when in fact they are all products of the same underlying imbalances in the body. Illnesses such as fibromyalgia, lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and others stem from inflammation.
“Inflammation is your body’s response to stress — whether from your diet, lifestyle or environment.” “Think of what happens when you catch a cold. You may experience inflammation in the form of a fever as your body heats up to eradicate the effects of the invading virus.” “This kind of inflammation is good, but the modern epidemic of chronic, low-grade inflammation destroys the balance in your body. When your body’s systems experience a constant inflammatory response, you become more susceptible to aging and disease.” (Source 2006 article by Body Ecology.)
Some of the primary causes of chronic inflammation:
Contact your local, state, and federal representatives and tell them to stop this dangerous practice. It is estimated that 100 travelers per year get cancer from this “low level radiation.”
We need to band together to ban this invasive, demeaning activity. How many bombers has it stopped? It did not stop the Detroit bomber who used powdered explosives. Fewer people die in the air then almost any other cause of death from transportation. This is not about keeping us safe. This is about destroying our civil liberties.
Antibiotics and other drugs, sugar, grains, excessive hygiene and hereditary factors decrease our protection against intestinal fungi. What can you do to help keep your intestinal fungi healthy and keep candida overgrowth under control…
If you think of your digestive tract like a lush meadow, it is easy to understand why it is so important to listen to our bodies when they tell us when something is wrong. By eating whole foods and consuming natural herbs and tonics such as Rest Easy™ and Inner Garden™, we can handle small problems instead of masking them until they turn into big problems.
