Spring cleaning is not just for your home or yard or car. It’s time to clean out the body as well. And there are several foods that are seasonally appropriate for the task.
For maximum results, invest in a juicer. Juicing gives you maximum nutrition and enzyme potential with minimal digestive effort. The better juicers are masticating single or double auger types. They extract the juice without injury or excess enzyme-destroying heat and discard the pulp. Continue reading →
The folks at the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at the University of Maryland have recently made an important discovery about some healing foods. These foods are special, because they contain extra doses of disease- fighting antioxidants and healing phytonutrients. They’re called “micro greens” and are the seedlings of vegetables and Continue reading →
What is a super food? While there is no specific definition for the term, a super food is generally recognized by a few characteristics: high nutritional density and low calories, high fiber, high in omega-3 fatty acids, lots of antioxidant activity, and rich with phytochemicals that have the potential to prevent or even reverse disease.
People seem to be in two camps these days. There are those who know that the radiation from Fukushima is dangerous and will have impacts, so they protect themselves through diet and supplementation. And there are those who think it`s all fine and even radioactive poisons with half lives of tens of thousands of years won`t harm them. The latter group will almost surely be stunned to find themselves with cancer, Alzheimer`s disease, or any variety of toxicity-induced diseases because they still haven`t understood that poisons cause disease and that there`s quite a bit each of us can do to influence the equation – without a doctor involved at all. Many people are eating seaweed these days and it`s an important step with any radiation disaster. Another important step is to get serious about detoxification – especially using enemas with coffee, seaweed and cilantro.
Why coffee, seaweed and cilantro? Well, coffee enemas have been around for ages. They actually used to be in the Merck manual as a standard for health – before the drug companies Continue reading →
Why not have the luck of health and eat green! The color green symbolizes growth, harmony, nature, freshness, and fertility–and we can thank our lucky charms for Mother Nature’s abundance of delicious green antioxidant-rich plants. Plus, foods that are green boast a bonanza of phytonutrients and cancer-fighting compounds. Get in the spirit of the shamrock season by eating greens that will boost your longevity.
Why Go Green?
Popeye was certainly onto something with his love of spinach. We all know how important it is to eat our greens, and countless studies prove the power of these cancer-fighting plants. One health-giving compound found in plants is chlorophyll, Continue reading →
It is too early to call everyone in North America to prepare for a radiation cloud streaming down radioactive particles from the accident in Japan. According to the media and government, America is not at risk due to radioactive fallout from the recent Japanese nuclear accidents in several reactors but that could change in a heartbeat as authorities race to combat the threat of multiple nuclear reactor meltdowns. Nuclear plant operators are working frantically to try to keep temperatures down in several reactors crippled by the earthquake and tsunami, wrecking at least two by dumping sea water into them in last-ditch efforts to avoid meltdowns.
Now, just hours after writing this above paragraph we get a report in the New York Times indicating that even best case scenarios include radioactive releases of steam from the crippled plants could go on for weeks, months or even years. Continue reading →
