• 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!

Q&A: Healthy Chocolate?

Question:
Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about so called “healthy chocolate” from friends and family members. It is being advertised as an enjoyable nutritional supplement, and it’s also a home-based business opportunity. I’ve tasted the products and I like them, but I’m interested in what you think of their claims for health benefits.

Answer:
The important things to remember about chocolate as an antioxidant are to find out whether or not the cocoa is raw, since heat affects the antioxidant quality, and to look at the sweeteners being used. Sugar (organic or otherwise) increases the body’s need for antioxidants by damaging cells with excess acid, stressing the adrenal glands, and creating free radicals; artificial sweeteners (including refined stevia) can add pancreatic and liver stress to the mix. If the correct conditions are met, you can indeed have “healthy” chocolate!
