• 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!

CHOCOLATE THAT’S HEALTHY FOR EVERYONE!

   A friend just sent me this excerpt from an article about chocolate:

organic chocolate bars. Also, please be aware that many popular and seemingly artisan-quality chocolate companies are now owned by multinational corporations who use GMO ingredients, disregard fair trade standards, and otherwise are not interested in supporting organic and sustainable production methods.

As examples, Cadbury Schweppes bought Green & Black in 2005, who in turn was bought by Kraft Foods in 2010. Dagoba was bought by Hershey’s in 2006. You will find this pattern recur quite often if you peek beneath the “wrapper” of the chocolate industry. So, please remember to choose carefully, and consider whether the companies you support are supporting you back.

Bummer!  Can’t believe I didn’t know about this sooner.”

My response: Yes, I know, really sad. Any health benefits that exist in cacao are neutralized by GMO stresses, and I believe that integrity, which includes fair trade, is imperative for health. Theo Chocolate is still independent, and I believe is the only certified fair-trade bean to bar producer in North America; I know they were the first. (They also have the most amazing chocolate mint bar!) Alter Eco is another safe bet. Hershey is the largest GMO producer in the world; last list I saw placed Starbucks second. Another similar situation exists in yogurt: Dannon owns Brown Cow, Oikos, and Stonyfield, General Mills owns Yoplait….. Pass it on!
