What Is Glyphosate? (and why we should all avoid it!)

September 06, 2016  I don’t understand why so many people think it’s necessary to use chemicals and toxins on our plants – whether crops or weeds. We’re slowly poisoning the Earth and ourselves to death, yet companies that produce these chemicals claim that they are safe, with little or no negative impact on the environment. They only make these claims for one reason, and one reason only. Money. Same goes for tobacco companies, pharmaceutical companies, and the fast-food industry. Money. They sell us lies and present us with fudged studies (funded by their own people), and because people are too busy (or too brain-washed) to believe otherwise, they blindly go with what is presented (via main-stream media, which is all controlled and...

Fast Food Destroys Gut Bacteria.

March 19, 2016 We’ve heard it all before – how most fast food and junk food is bad for you and should be avoided as much as possible. Ask anyone in the Natural Health field and they’ll tell you it’s no surprise that McDonald’s food has always managed to be at the top of the “avoid” list; regardless of their menu changes and promotion of more “healthy” eating. Some research has shown that even McDonald’s salads are a bad idea, with some topping out at over 700 calories! That’s more than a Big Mac! For more info, click here:  CBC News Canada You’ve guessed it — the “fast food” mentioned in the title of this article is specifically about the kind McDonald’s serves up. To...

Going Bananas for Bananas

December 1st, 2015 For most of my adult life, I’ve held the belief that bananas are to be avoided; that they are high in sugar and fat and, if consumed on a regular basis, will make you gain weight. This entire belief system was challenged recently during a sleepless night when my wandering mind landed on the topic of bananas (don’t ask, I have no idea why) and I began to ponder the whole “stay away from bananas” belief and asked myself “how many bananas could a person eat in one day?” Needless to say, the next morning I did a bunch of research and, to my surprise, everything I read indicated that most people can consume up to three bananas a day. Whoa. What? When did that happen? Well the good news is that if you like bananas you can enjoy them...

Know Your Eggs?

Do YOU know where your eggs come from and the difference between organic. free-range, free-run, and caged hens? This short video explains things really well. Which will you choose?   In case you’re wondering which I choose, until I get some hens, I only eat organic free-range eggs. I don’t like the idea of hens living in little cages (or packed into a barn). Free hens are happy hens 🙂

Creative Journaling

I have been traditional (written) journaling for as long as I can remember. It started with a diary when I was in grade school, which later progressed to what I term a “proper” journal and that has continued on/off for the last 30+ years. Recently, though, I discovered a different approach to journaling: Creative (Art) Journaling. And what an experience it’s been so far! It has taken my journaling experience to a whole new level of expression and expansion, plus it’s tapped me into a level of creativity that I didn’t even know existed in me! Some time soon, I will be offering workshops and one-on-one sessions in the “how to’s” of Creative Journaling. For now, I’m sharing some of my experiences (along with some...

Juicing Your Way to Better Health

JUICING  is an excellent way to get a concentration of nutrients into your body, whether it be for general health to nourish and help the organs gently cleanse and detoxify, boost overall energy, or to support the body during times of illness. The health benefits of juicing are seemingly endless, and juicing works as well as it does (when done properly) because the nutrients in the foods are released (and suspended in liquid) during juicing thereby making them (the nutrients) easier for the body to break down, digest and assimilate. This is incredibly important during times of stress or illness, when the digestive system isn’t able to work at optimum levels; the nutrient-rich juice needs very little “processing” by the digestive system, and...
