Prepare Your Body for the Holiday Season


What causes disease? It comes down to two things: an overload of toxins and a deficiency of nutrients. If we keep cleansing our bodies and feeding them superior nutrition as we get from fresh vegetable juices, we have an excellent chance of staying healthy.

Want to avoid fall sniffles? Some health practitioners say that if you cleanse with the seasons, you won’t get sick. This is your opportunity to clean out the toxins before the holiday season is upon us. Cleansing your body not only helps you flush away the toxins, but you can also flush away fat too.

Eastern medicine focuses on the large intestines and the lungs for cleansing and support in the fall. But while you’re at it, you should cleanse your colon first. And why not clean all your organs of elimination?

Seed Thoughts…

Seed Thoughts…

Your Body Believes Every Word You Say!

Barbara Hoberman Levine describes the language of the link between mind and body in her book “Your Body Believes Every Word You Say”. Barbara’s fifteen-year battle with a huge brain tumor led her to trace common phrases like “that breaks my heart” and “it’s a pain in the butt” back to the underlying beliefs on which they are based and the symptoms they cause. She lists hundreds of common examples of words we use unconsciously every day and shows how these “seed thoughts” can set us up for illness.(1)

Enzymes, Hair, and Nails!

Enzymes, Hair, and Nails!

Why Do Enzymes Affect the Hair and Nails So Positively?

Systemic enzymes benefit your entire system. But specifically the enzymes I take and recommend help your body break down undigested proteins that circulate in the system. More digested protein means more availability for your hair and nails. These enzymes have actually helped me grow hair back. There was a time when my hair really thinned out. It all started when I started enjoying wine. It was too much sugar for my system. This caused my hair to fall out at an alarming rate. When I discovered the enzymes I’m recommending today, my hair started growing back. It also got thicker and stronger. And it broke less often.

Juicing, Oxalates and Kidney Stones

Juicing, Oxalates and Kidney Stones

Cranberry to the Rescue!

I have had numerous emails of late from people worried about oxalates in the juices they drink. Oxalates (or oxalic acid) are naturally occurring compounds in foods like spinach, kale and chard. They are also produced in small amounts in the liver. The role of oxalates is to provide protection for plants– everything from harmful bacteria to insects and animals.

Oxalates are correlated with the formation of the most common type of kidney stones – calcium oxalate stones. These form when oxalates bind with calcium in the bloodstream.

Most people do not need to be concerned about oxalates in the diet. However, if you have a health condition that requires you to limit oxalates, then you do need to follow some nutritional guidelines.

Count Your Blessings

Count Your Blessings

Live Your Life in Peace and with Joy.

This last week we celebrated our mom’s (my husband’s mother) life as we spread her ashes on her favorite lake in Washington. We said prayers and shared our tributes to her. One of the things we talked about was her positive attitude and how she learned to count her blessings.  She typified what it means to “finish well.”
