• YOU can become your own primary health care provider!

    Natural medicine is a vast improvement over contemporary care, but natural health is even better. My intent is to provide the tools and information you need in order to duplicate my successful experiences, and to offer you the comfort and peace of mind that has been such a blessing and security to my family.
  • Whatever form of natural health supplement you choose, be sure to educate yourself on all aspects of your health care. Let your diet and your attitude be the foundation for a life of wellness, not disease. When you don’t feel well, look for the root causes rather than seeking to simply substitute an herb or remedy for your medication. If you are taking medication for a serious condition, consult with someone well trained in herbs and alternatives before making a substitution and stopping your prescription. Your body will need time to reestablish it’s awareness that it is required to function!

FAQ: Does Shopping in a Health Food Store Really Make a Difference?

There are two factors to consider in “health food” shopping.

First, many people simply don’t know what they’re selling. Natural foods have become a large, profitable market which has naturally attracted lots of unscrupulous individuals. As a result, many “natural products” contain refined sugar and flour (i.e. “organic sugar or cane syrup” and “unbleached” flour), synthetic flavoring and so forth. Understand that “natural flavors” can be anything, including MSG. You need to read labels as carefully in the health store as in any other shopping site.
Second, even many so-called organic products do not muscle test well. They may be processed with polluted water (remember, “filtered water” may be run through a screen and nothing more!), sprayed with fumigants after harvest, or stored in pesticide-treated warehouses or stockrooms. This last reason has been my motivation for preferring not to buy organic food in a commercial supermarket setting. The new federal organic standards allow farmers to claim organic for crops grown pesticide free for three years; traditional standards required seven years before land was considered “clean”. Intermediate crops were labeled “transitional organic”, which is not a part of the new guidelines. Texas standards even required transport in separate railroad cars from sprayed crops to prevent transfer contamination, even for cotton, which is not consumable.
I am concerned about fad foods, even if they are herbally based or supposedly natural. Arsenic is a natural substance, but not one to be ingested in isolation! Too often today I am seeing “active ingredient” extracts that remove the inherent balance that exists in healing plants as they were created. We seem obsessed with putting man’s touch on everything!
