• 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!

Best Breakfast Ever Food Rules

Looking around for my third raw food for breakfast reminded me that I had never posted my basic food rules. (You can watch them in the introductory video www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQrSGl_aKc4  that I made for clients to watch in my office.) First is at least three raw foods at a meal. This morning I had a pumpkin seed Doctor Kracker with a slice of smoked gouda, sprouts, and honeycrisp apples. Delicious, but I added some slices of pear to round it out. Raw foods have enzymes that help you break down everything else you eat so you access more nutrients than you otherwise would. At least one of the foods should be a vegetable rather than just fruits. Think of fruits as vitamins and vegetables as minerals. We are generally more deficient in the latter!

Adding raw foods to breakfast is easy. If you normally eat eggs, toss in chopped veggies after they are cooked, which will warm but not kill them, or eat them with a side of fresh salsa. Instead of jelly on your (whole grain, I hope!) toast (Food For Life sprouted English muffins are the best!) smash fresh banana and strawberries on top of raw almond or cashew butter. Add raw nuts, apples, and raisins, or coconut, oranges, and bananas to your oatmeal. I eat my oatmeal “raw”, mixing quick oats, nuts and fruit with plain or vanilla yogurt or kefir. There is nothing that is a quicker, better breakfast than a smoothie, though you do need to pay attention to ingredients if you use protein powders. Most are very high in sugars, and isolated proteins can be very stressful to the digestive system. I like Tera’s Whey and Manitoba Harvest hemp protein, but even better are raw flax, hemp, or sesame seeds, or raw nut butters. You can throw anything into smoothies; I literally tossed a bowl of leftover dinner salad into the blender with frozen berries, yogurt, and juice on a morning that we were leaving town for a few days. Everyone loved the smoothie that morning, and the salad had included onions among the many other ingredients!
