Garlic is a superstar when it comes to protecting against disease — no doubt about it. How does garlic come to sit in the top spot when it comes to maintaining good health? Mostly because it is high in sulfur compounds. These compounds are potent extractors of toxic heavy chemicals in your body. They bind with chemicals so that they can be excreted, instead of taking hold in your organs and causing damage. These sulfur compounds are also effective at protecting against oxidation and free radicals. Garlic is also a natural antiseptic. Continue reading

A recent article published in The Science of Biology espouses the anti-detoxification views of Professor David Bender, professor emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at University College London. In his article, titled The Detox Delusion, Professor Bender claims that detoxification is a “meaningless marketing term,” even potentially dangerous to your health and unnecessary as a dieting tool. He further states, “I am not sure what ‘self-healing’ is and the idea of ‘raised energy levels’ is nonsense.”
For many in the mainstream medical and scientific community, it is not pharmaceutical drugs (killing approximately 100,000 each year), or pollutants found in our food, air and water that are dangerous. Continue reading

If you’re a foodie wanting to clean your system out, but can’t stand the thought of a strict fast, try eating some kitchari. Ayurvedic doctors swear by this hearty dish made of basmati rice, mung dal, and aromatic Indian herbs; because it is super easy to digest, highly nourishing, and purifying, it is the ideal food for cleansing an overworked digestive system clogged up by fats and chemical-laden processed foods.
According to Ayurveda, India’s ancient holistic healing system, proper digestion is essential to good health. Eating kitchari for a period of time gives the digestive system the break it needs for it to devote itself to healing. This staple of the Ayurvedic diet is eaten regularly (as the sole food in a mono-diet cleanse) and as part of a Panchakarma (a comprehensive Ayurvedic detoxification program that uses techniques such as oil massage, sweating, Continue reading
Steve Jobs died at 56 years old last week from complications of pancreatic cancer. Steve was the charismatic pioneer and innovative co-founder of Apple who transformed personal use of technology as well as entire industries with products such as the iPod, iPad, iPhone, Macintosh computer and the iTunes music store.
Steve was only 21 when he started Apple–officially formed on April Fool’s Day, 1976. He was forced out in 1985 but returned 15 years ago and plucked Apple from near-bankruptcy, and in August of this year turned it into the most valuable company in the world passing Exxon.
Jeffery Kluger from Time Magazine had a great comment on the impact he made on the culture.
“But it’s also fair to argue that Jobs was in some ways different from other captains of industry. Continue reading
