How to Balance Your pH to Heal Your Body Some health experts believe that our pH balance is extremely important, others say it is essential, there are a few who clearly state that it is a matter of life and death. The only people who don't emphasize the alkaline/acidity balance as central to health are quacks that peddle a pharmaceutical pill for every ill, a drug for every bug. As a naturopath and yoga therapist for over a decade I can say that pH balance is a top priority when I am working one on one with my students. Since most people are too acidic, teaching them how to return to a slightly alkaline state is a major piece of the healing puzzle. pH stands for power of hydrogen, which is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. By including pH balance in my approach to health and healing, through yoga and nutrition, I have seen repeatedly students bodies and minds rebuild on their own from all kinds of degenerative conditions that no one else was able to cure. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
Medicinal Pickled garlic | Cheryl's Delights I found this recipe in the book Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide . If you do not have this book I suggest you look into getting it.

The Myth of Agave as a "Healthy" Sugar Substitute Many people interested in staying healthy have switched to agave as a safer "natural" sweetener. They want to avoid well documented dangerous sweeteners like HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) but are unaware that most agave is actually WORSE than HFCS. This expose will offend many hard core natural health advocates because they have been convinced of the agave hype by companies that are promoting it. Some have even criticized me for having "ulterior" motives. But nothing could be further from the truth. Although I do offer natural health products for sale on this site, I sell no competing products to agave. Rather, I recommend other options such as stevia products. My only purpose for sharing this information is to help people understand the truth about health. I had similar epiphanies about omega-3 fats and vitamin D since I started this site, but this is the most major health appreciation I have had since I learned about vitamin D over five years ago. So Just What is Agave? Dicalite
NATURE CURES Parasites and Worms - ADVERT FREE See below for 40 natural remedies and a cleansing diet to kill and flush out worms and parasites. More worrying still is the growing penchant in allopathic medicine for actively infecting people with parasites in order to quell unwanted immune responses such as allergies and autoimmune diseases. Parasitic worms and their larvae have evolved considerable defences with thick, armoured outer layers, fearsome mouthparts and well-developed muscles which enable them to penetrate and survive inside their host. The eosinophils bind to the worms and release toxins from their granules in order to kill them. IgE antibodies are found attached to mast cells where they act as receptors for any substance that may have been produced by, or is attached to, a multi-cellular parasite. The IgE antibody response is also responsible for allergies. Causes The eggs of these parasites are introduced into the human system through the medium of food or water, especially undercooked meat.

NASA Admits To Chemtrails As They Propose Spraying Stratospheric Aerosols Into Earths Atmosphere It’s really amazing how many people are waking up to the fact that “chemtrails” are different from “con-trails.” What was once considered a conspiracy to many is now a fact, chemicals are constantly sprayed into our atmosphere and have been for quite some time now. Not long ago, NASA personnel gave a lecture (that was also streamed live) at their Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology. Some of you might be thinking, “Geoengineering, what is that?” These programs are also considering spraying Aluminum into the atmosphere (if not already doing it). “There might be some good reasons to think about aluminum. The idea of spraying aluminum into our atmosphere goes way back, patents exist that clearly demonstrate the consideration of such materials that include the oxides of metals which have high emissivity. “We do stuff in the stratosphere all the time off-course, so it’s not as though the stratosphere is absolutely pristine. Below is a very informative video.
Why Dandelions Are the New Kale Kale has received plenty of press in the last decade. Good for kale. Good for our bodies. Kale is actually a “gateway” leaf into the world of green. Green your diet, and you will naturally start to pay more attention to plants with leaves. Humans Used to Eat Green As a species we’re in a “remembering” phase of our health evolution. Inner & Outer Ecosystem Theory There is a holistic gorgeousness to the situation here: as we green our diet with growing complexity, we evacuate the toxic rubbish from our cells. Externally, we begin to notice more variety in the plants in the supermarket, our yard and our ecosystem. The Dandelion Effect I’ve seen the dandelion effect emerge like this: you do your first body cleanse and start drinking green juice or green smoothies. The light bulb goes off. Wait, you think. Greens Are Free Now, it really clicks and you see that all plants, not just the ones in the grocery store, have green leaves. I’m glad you’ve started eating green.
3 Powerful Nutrients to Help Kick your Anxiety Symptoms In my practice, as a therapist and health coach, I have found far too often that people struggling with anxiety use food to self-medicate. And, I’m not referring to kale or quinoa! Food creates a powerful response in the body. Your body is brilliant. We can become deficient in nutrients for various reasons. Magnesium. Magnesium is a POWERFUL relaxant mineral for the body. Taking a Magnesium Glycinate supplement can be extremely helpful (check with your doctor first if you have other medical conditions), but there are great ways to obtain it through foods. B Vitamins and Iron B-Vitamins have been shown in studies to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Great food sources of B Vitamins, particularly B6 include poultry, beef, salmon, sweet potato, sunflower seeds, spinach and pistachios. Iron from meat, poultry, and fish (i.e., heme iron) is absorbed two to three times more efficiently than iron from plants (i.e., non-heme iron). Sources:
Vertical Farms Sprouting Up All Over The World Could Bring Food Local Imagine walking into a high rise building only to find out it was actually a vertical farm. As odd as this sounds, this type of building is popping up in different areas of the world as the idea promises new, environmentally friendly and rapid ways to feed growing populations. The first commercial vertical farm was built in Singapore by Jack Ng who is an entrepreneur looking to supply food to Singapore’s densely populated city without having to buy a lot of highly priced land around the city. His vertical farm method is energy efficient, simple and mixes some ancient practices with new ones. The tower is modern and clear, so it looks great and allows sunlight into the the building for the plants. In March of this year the largest vertical farm is set to open up in Scranton, New York. Although sunlight is used as much as possible in vertical farms, some are using windowless operations and some with lights like LEDs that re-create sunlight. What are your thoughts on vertical farms?
