Could Taking A ‘GREENS SUPPLEMENT’ Help You?

For most people – DEFINITELY!green-garden-powder4

Why?

Because Western diets that are typically high in meat [protein] and carbohydrate consumption are highly acidic [because acid is needed to break down proteins and carbohydrates]. Greens food are plant based so they help keep the body’s sensitive pH balance in an alkaline and healthy state.

Unless most of your diet consists of vegetables and fruits with an emphasis on eating them raw – you are probably lacking some of the nutrients your body wants!Vegetables

Less than 11 percent of all Americans meet the USDA minimum recommended guidelines for fruit and vegetable consumption.

With our hectic lives, it’s never easy to squeeze in all of those servings of fruits and vegetables, but getting balanced whole food nutrition is vital for optimal health!

Diets high in fruits and vegetables have been shown to reduce the risk of obesity and some chronic health diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes. Are you missing out on the health benefits of a nutritionally-rich diet?

It’s easy to increase your daily consumption of nutritious whole foods with our amazing Green Garden formula.

Is the High Fructose Corn Syrup Ad Right – Is it Harmless?

corn-syrup

A few friends had mentioned seeing a commercial stating that High Fructose Corn Syrup was natural and harmless.  I finally saw it myself this weekend.  Wow, what I was most amazed about was the lack of information that was given.  I guess when you are trying to promote a unhealthy product, less is more.

If you haven’t seen it – a man and woman are picnicking and the woman is holding a red Popsicle.  She offers it to him and he declines because it has high fructose corn syrup in it.  When she asks him Why that is a ‘bad’ thing, he is unable to respond.  This is the crux of the commercial, he can’t verbalize WHY it has a negative effect on his health.  Because of this, she tells him that it is made from corn and it is natural.  Then finishing with something about it being OK in moderation.

The sad fact is unless you have a PhD in natural health and /or nutrition, it is hard to articulate what you’ve read and believe. I know… I still have trouble sometimes and it has been my main reading/hobby/interest/career for the last 5 years!

Having a massive interest in ‘natural’ food and ‘alternative’ health, spawned by my daughter’s miraculous recovery from JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) using these methods, I’ve removed High Fructose Corn Syrup from my family’s diet.                                                                                                                                                                    picture-of-101-great-ways-improve-your-healththumbnail

I’m not surprised that this commercial is out… I mean the organic food movement is getting larger.  When I began eating all organic food years ago, there was not an organic piece of produce or anything in the ‘regular’ grocery store.  Now most stores at last have some sections designated for organic products.  Most of these labels state NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, which is one of the ingredients informed consumers look to avoid.  The corn syrup producers must be very unhappy about this and are trying to fight their demise.

After watching the commercial I thought about what I would have said when asked WHY is HFCS bad?

Well, what I know is that High Fructose Corn Syrup is unhealthy because it is a sweetener which raises insulin levels, which has negative effects on the body.  Just like it is a well known fact today that sugar does this and it is best to minimize or omit it from your diet.

So what makes HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP so bad?  You can read many different articles that give you the scientific breakdown of what HFCS is and why is is unhealthy.  To read specifics, check out – What is High Fructose Corn Syrup or  Six Reasons Why Corn is Making You Fat by Joseph Mercola.

But the overall picture is this.  High Fructose Corn Syrup was created by Japanese Scientists in the 70’s. (which back before this obesity rates were very low, coincidence?)

HFCS is now the prevalent sweetener used in the US for many reasons, but mostly money.  It is cheaper. (surprise surprise)

It isn’t natural because it is modified.  High Fructose Corn Syrup is made by adding enzymes to cornstarch to change the make up.

I could go on and on, but why?  You’ll forget and it really isn’t important.  Why? Because it is just as bad for you as sugar and is more prevalent in the American diet than sugar.  And no one is arguing that we need to cut back on sugar.

I mean every knows and doesn’t fight the fact that:        sugar2

Here is a list of ways sugar can affect your health:

So it seems kind of silly that this is the Pro’s list for High Fructose Corn Syrup –

The Pro-High Fructose Corn Syrup people, namely those involved in its sale, and hhmm money, say that –

Feeling Run Down this Holiday Season? Probiotics Can Help!

product_5_zm1

It is that time of year again!

The holidays, family gatherings, and parties are upon us and we find ourselves busier than ever. Unfortunately, during these times our bodies become more susceptible to illness.

To avoid colds, the flu, and viral infections, start taking Probiotics from Frequency Foods.

Why?

Because this patented friendly flora blend of Probiotics is an all-natural, non-toxic product that helps you say goodbye to viral, bacterial, and fugal infections! It kills pathogenic viruses, which lead to colds and the flu.

It is also a natural antibiotic, which kills the bad bacteria in your system without harming the ‘good guys.’

There are numerous other benefits to taking this product, but I want to tell you why Frequency Food’s Probiotics is superior when compared to other brands.

  • First, it is combined with a whole food source for optimal viability and absorption.
  • Secondly, most probiotics supplements on the market are improperly freeze-dried so the good bacteria are actually killed before you even take the product.

Frequency Food’s Probiotics are preserved through a proprietary and specialized technique during processing to maintain the viability.

Healthy Hot Chocolate!

creamy-hot-chocolate_413

Love Hot chocolate?  Me too!  What I didn’t like was all the junk that is added to instant hot chocolate.

For example here are the list of ingredients for Nestle’ Instant Hot Cocoa Mix –

Yum? After reading that list, it makes me want to pass on the cup of cocoa even on a cold day!
Fortunately, there is an EASY & most importantly a HEALTHY Hot Chocolate recipe that even your kids will love.
With No Sugar, No Hydrogenated Oils, and No chemicals you can’t pronounce!
(Yes, it passed my 12 year-old-daughter’s test!) She even said, “It is the best hot chocolate ever!”
So here it is –
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder with 70% or more cacao.
  • 1 packet of Stevia powder (or 1/4 tsp. liquid)
  • 1 cup of raw milk  (Click here to learn more about the benefits of raw milk)
  • For special times – add a dollop of whip cream (Natural by Nature uses organic cream and only 1 gram of sugar from cane sugar with no hydrogenated oils)
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and heat gently (DO NOT let boil) stirring frequently until cocoa is just beginning to steam.  Pour into a mug and enjoy.
*Heating on low will allow the antioxidants to release from the cocoa and will not destroy all of the beneficial ingredients in the raw milk.
To save time and allow my daughter to make it, I mixed the cocoa and stevia together in a glass jar so when it is time to make it, it is a little quicker and neater.

Enjoy!

What Ingredients Are In Your Flu Shot? You’ll be SHOCKED!

I know I was.

I mean we hear it on the radio, we see it on TV, our doctors tell us we should get it to avoid the complications of the flu, RIGHT?

Did you ever wonder what is in a Flu Shot? What are your trusted doctors shooting you and your children up with?

Watch this hilarious video for an eye opening list of ingredients!

So if that didn’t gross you out enough to want to avoid the Flu Shot, is it because you think that it is safer than getting the Flu itself and the possible complications?

But a recent study published in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu appeared to have no impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons.

Additionally, a Group Health study found that flu shots do not protect elderly people against developing pneumonia — the primary cause of death resulting as a complication of the flu. Others have questioned whether there is any mortality benefit with influenza vaccination. Vaccination coverage among the elderly increased from 15 percent in 1980 to 65 percent now, but there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza or pneumonia.

There is some evidence that flu shots cause Alzheimer’s disease, most likely as a result of combining mercury with aluminum and formaldehyde. Mercury in vaccines has also been implicated as a cause of autism.

Three other serious adverse reactions to the flu vaccine are joint inflammation and arthritis, anaphylactic shock (and other life-threatening allergic reactions), and Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralytic autoimmune disease.

That is enough for me!

I mean no real hard evidence that it helps prevent the flu.  Yet hard but ignored evidence that the preservatives are damaging our bodies.

I think instead I’ll continue eating organic vegetables, fruits, and free range meat and to omit refined sugars, flours, and foods from my families diet.

I’ll also continue taking a high quality all-in-one multi-mineral from Frequency Foods as well as probiotics.  In addition, I’ll continue to take Dr. Mercola’s Krill Oil.

I was talking to a friend about this the other day and this gave me a poll question.

Did you Know that the Flu Shot contained these ingredients?

My best to you and your family making informed choices!

Don’t Give Up Your Chocolate! Try this Healthy Version…

Dark Chocolate Goji Berries!

I found these in my local co-op from a company called Extreme Health USA.

A couple of days a week I get an urge for chocolate.  So instead of giving it up, I’ve changed what kind of chocolate I’ll eat.

For the most part, I will only eat organic dark chocolate because of the increased antioxidant properties with less of the unhealthy part – namely sugar.  These use organic evaporated cane juice instead of the refined white sugar found in most chocolate.

I love these bite size chocolate covered berries because of their taste – but check out the health benefits:

Are You Going to Be a Scientific Experiment by Eating Cloned Food?

That seems to be what the US government is doing by cloning animals.

What is this?

Cloning is an attempt to create a new animal using the DNA from an existing adult animal. The FDA, while noting that livestock cloning produces many malformed or ill newborn animals, said cloned animals that survive for several months after birth can be healthy. They can reproduce normally and produce healthy young, the FDA said. The agency said it found no signs that food from healthy clones is harmful to humans, and predicted that sickly clones would be excluded from the food supply.

I’d love to know who performed these studies and who paid for them.

Even worse –

No public system is in place to alert food sellers when products from animal lines that include clones could reach their shelves – whether in the form of a rib-eye steak, a quart of low-fat milk, a can of beef minestrone or a wedge of sharp cheddar.

I mean how is it that they can put cloned food in our food supply without any labels?

Silly question – I know – what drives most of the insanity in this day and age – money.

More money for the powers that be from the cloning companies who want money from the farmers for these prized animals, who (the farmers) want more money for their scientific experiments.

What price do we and our children pay for this?

I suppose we are suppose to just wait some years and find out? That is what the FDA would like us to do.

Cloning is a relatively new technology and its impacts are still not well understood. According to a number of scientific studies the vast majority of cloning attempts fail. Even “successful” clones can have severe health problems, such as metabolic or cardiopulmonary abnormalities, that can result in death or the need for euthanasia. There are concerns that food safety could be impacted if cloned animals or animal products derived from them are used for food. Indeed, there have been limited studies on the safety of cloned animal products for consumption.

Aside from the inhumane treatment to animals (which is a whole other subject) Shouldn’t the mere fact that most cloning attempts fail and if they do work, there are severe health problems enough to tell us that it isn’t right?

I think so and anyone I’ve ever talked to is at least uncomfortable with the idea and they want to know more.

Thank Goodness for the people like The Center For Food Safety who keep us informed of what is trying to be put through without our knowledge. Also because of great people like them – they allow our voices to be heard.

In one of their latest articles they said-

Your voice is being heard – don’t stop now. We need your help in sending a strong message to food producers, restaurants and grocers that consumers do not want foods from cloned animals or their offspring.

Twenty of America’s leading food producers, restaurants, and retailers have said that they will not use cloned animals in their food in response to surveys sent by the Center for Food Safety and Friends of the Earth.

Companies include Kraft Foods; General Mills; Gerber/Nestle; Campbell Soup Company; Gossner Foods; Smithfield Foods; Ben & Jerry’s; Amy’s Kitchen; California Pizza Kitchen restaurants; Hain Celestial; Cloverland, Oberweis, Prairie, Byrne, Plainview, and Clover-Stornetta Dairies; and grocers PCC Natural Markets, Albertsons, SUPERVALU, and Harris Teeter.  The move by these companies represents a growing industry trend of responding to consumer demand for better food safety, environmental, and animal welfare standards. We need more to follow suit to protect our food supply since FDA refuses to do so.

I for one do not want to eat or drink any cloned or genetically modified foods.  It is already a shame that most of what fills a typical grocery store shelf is boxes of chemicals.

If this has hit a chord with you go here and sign the petition that our stores will see telling them that we don’t want cloned food!

If enough people do this – we can make a difference for ourselves and our children.

It is worth the try. And thank you to the True Food Network!

To Your Health,
