Apples—We’ve all heard the adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and provided that apple is an organic one, the saying holds some truth. In addition to the vitamins and minerals, they contain an important phytonutrient called malic acid, which when ingested helps improve energy production in your body and has been shown to help fibromyalgia sufferers.
Beets—Recommended by holistic health professionals purify the blood and cleanse the liver, beets are also high in nutrients such as folate, manganese, potassium, and vitamin C. In their uncooked state, beets also contain an impo…

An ancient Tibetan healing secret is finally being discovered in the West. For thousands of years Tibetans used a fruit that grows wild in the Himalayan Mountains as food and medicine to treat many serious health conditions ranging from breathing disorders to skin problems. Now science is proving that sea buckthorn is potent natural medicine.
Like many superfoods, sea buckthorn contains numerous powerful antioxidants that help the body deal with free radical damage (now linked to almost every illness and aging). But sea buckthorn doesn’t stop there, it is also an excellent source of i…
Do you want your ice cream, cake, and your candy too? Now you can lick those sugar cravings for good with natural foods, nutrients, and food timing tricks. Here are 7 ways to send your sweet tooth packing:
Saffron: Research shows that an extract of the spice saffron (Crocus sativus) gets to the root of sweet cravings and helps eliminate them. It appears to work by regulating brain pathways in what is now referred to as the “Feed-Feedback Cycle.” In one study published in Nutrition Research researchers found that between-meal snacking (used as a measure of cravings) was reduced b…
Every now and then I read or hear someone say that the body doesn’t need to detoxify. This is an appalling statement since the body cannot live without effective and efficient detoxification, which needs to occur in the lungs, liver, skin, intestines, kidneys, lymphatic system, and other areas of the body every minute of every day.
Our bodies are surprisingly good at detoxification but these processes can easily become overwhelmed due to the volume of toxins to which we’re exposed from our air, water, food, pharmaceutical and over-the-counter drugs, and many other sources.
A New Zealand woman, Natasha Harris recently died due to excessive Coca-Cola consumption (at least in part). The New Zealand coroner ruled that the woman's death was partially attributed to the 10 litres of Coca-cola she drank daily. The coroner also indicated that Coca-Cola could not be held liable for her death.
Ms. Harris had previously lost all of her teeth due to erosion. One of her children was born without tooth enamel. According to news reports, the coroner further stated in the report that Ms. Harris died due to metabolic imbalances arising from cardiac arrhythmia due to Coca…
The lymphatic system, or lymph system as it is also called, is a system made up of glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus gland, and tonsils. It bathes our body’s cells and carries the body’s cellular sewage away from the tissues to the blood, where it can be filtered by two of the body’s main detoxification organs: the liver and kidneys. This sewage is made up of the byproducts of our bodily processes, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, illicit drugs, cigarette toxins, other airborne pollutants, food additives, pesticides, and other toxins.

Just over a year ago I did an article on 20 Reasons to Love Bacteria. Exciting new research is showing that there are even more reasons to love probiotics and to add them to your health regime. Here are 8 more reasons to love probiotic bacteria:
Urinary Tract Infections
New research in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that two probiotics are almost as effective as antibiotics at eliminating urinary tract infections from the body. The probiotics Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri taken twice daily on an empty stomach for a year caused a 51.4% drop in harmful E. col…
Boosting your energy doesn’t have to cost a lot or feel like work. Just by learning a few simple tricks you can have a great impact on your energy for the rest of your life.
