Natural Detox to remove allergies, mercury, chemicals, GMOs, parasites Share by: JB Bardot Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a naturally occurring rock made from the skeletons of fossilized diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. When ground into a fine powder, diatomaceous earth works mechanically to destroy a wide range of pests, insects, parasites and pathogens by cutting through the exoskeleton, absorbing bodily fluids and causing them to die. Food grade diatomaceous earth is chemical-free and non toxic. Diatomaceous earth has many uses including detoxification of the body — inside and out; protecting pets and livestock from parasites and insect infestation; and keep your yard and garden pest-free. Detoxing Add diatomaceous earth to your diet to detox parasites that can contribute to food intolerance, nausea, bowel discomfort, pain, itching, asthma, sinus infections, Morgellon’s disease, and a host of other allergic-type reactions. To consume DE orally, start with half a teaspoon and work up to two heaping tablespoons. Protect grains and dry goods Yard and garden

Raw Food Diet Veria Staff | | The Skinny on Raw Food The raw food diet is a diet based on the belief that most healthy food for the body is uncooked. Cooking is thought to denature the enzymes naturally present in food. In general, the act of heating food over 116 F destroys enzymes in food, although with some foods, this process starts at 106 degrees F. According to raw foodists, if we consume too much cooked food, our bodies are forced to work harder by producing more enzymes. Although most food is eaten raw, heating food is acceptable as long as the temperature stays below 104 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit. Raw food diet Origin of Raw Food Diet Raw foods as a dietary health treatment was first developed in Switzerland by medical doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner. The German dentist Weston A. Fifty years on, these ideas gained renewed attention with Leslie Kenton’s book Raw Energy – Eat Your Way to Radiant Health.

The Power of the Fork – Part Two In my last blog, I explored how your diet affects not only your personal health but the health of the soil, water, air, and global climate. What we choose to eat determines whether or not we deplete nature’s capital, as well as our human capital, the richness that comes from a healthy, vibrant community. Fossil Fuels and Drugs Hidden in Our Food How could it be that the price of gas and the price of our food are correlated? The fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides used on these farms are generally oil by-products. These factory farms are producing “Frankenmeat” that destroys our bodies and degrades our environment at an ever-increasing cost. Industrial food production doesn’t just require more energy and contribute to global warming, it also exposes us to harm because the foods we eat contain altered proteins, fats, and sugars, as well as unhealthy antibiotics and hormones. Pharmaceuticals have become essential to our “modern” food production. Frankenfoods and the Farm Bill
13 Amazing Healing Abilities of 13 Fruits - Pineapple For Cancer, Cherry For Pain and More Crouching Produce Stand, Hidden Medicine Cabinet Fruit is not only enjoyable to eat — as it should be, considering the very word fruit stems from the Latin word frui, meaning “to enjoy, use” — but it also nourishes and protects the body with powerful, built-in medicinal activity. Fruits are by design a “perfect food,” intended to entice animals to consume them in order to help disseminate their seeds, for instance. This means that unlike grains, and other lectin- and anti-nutrient-rich organisms, e.g. wheat, tomato, beans, we humans have chosen to make into our food, fruits are less likely to come equipped with “invisible thorns,” as they benefit as much in being eaten as we do in eating them. With this symbiotic relationship between fruit-bearing plant and seed-disseminating animal in mind, the following healing fruit facts won’t seem so unbelievable… Grapefruit – Infection Pineapple – Cancer Watermelon – Hypertension Cherry – Inflammation/Pain Lemon – Kidney Stones Papaya – Skin Ulcers
