Recently I came across the topic of fluoridation of our drinking water (again). This is a hot button topic and there are many differing opinions on the subject, specifically what level is safe, if any. The issue is that most of us consume fluoride without even knowing it and with little control over how much we are ingesting. Read More
Got a chronic cough that will not go away or respond to any medications? Do you have unexplained fatigue? Or, recurring yeast infections? It could be fungus in your body! More and more holistic practitioners and Western medicine doctors are making the connection between chronic disease and fungal infections in our bodies.
So how does fungus enter our bodies? There are two ways: 1. We ingest it in our food or 2. We inhale it from our environment. Let’s talk about fungus in our food first. Read More
Morning is the most essential part of the day because it actively affects your entire routine. Having a good morning allows one to enjoy the whole day. Recent experiments have showed that the key to having a successful and healthy life is to start every day positively. Here are a few methods to make everyday a good one.
1.Take some alone time
Taking some time for thinking in the morning makes one more creative, and also increases the mental health, according to recent studies. One of the most effective ways to do that is through open-minded meditation. This is when you do not just think about a specific object, or a situation or anything specific at all, but let yourself open to anything that floats in your mind. Research has shown that people who practice open-minded meditation generate more creativity than most people. One should especially avoid thinking about any specific tasks, such as checking the mail, creating a memo, calling work, when he/she wakes up. This not only destroys creativity, but also makes one feel dull during the whole day. Read More
Most of us know that transdermal creams and lotions are a very effective delivery system to transport active ingredients into our bodies. For example, hormone creams, such as progesterone, testosterone or estrogen creams are a great way to get those hormones to where they are needed. There are other examples as well, such as creams for pain. So we all know, that creams applied to our skin deliver great results. Why then do we ignore the fact that anything we put on our skin will be absorbed and transported into our bodies. This includes toxic cosmetics, skin,- and haircare. Read More

Relieve stress through drumming
As much far-fetched as it may sound, drumming has been used as a therapeutic treatment for many centuries, and has been known to help boost the mental, spiritual and physical health of the people. In fact, this ancient technique has been used by many past civilizations, such as Mongolians, and even the Mayans. According to a research carried out in recent years, drumming actually does help the physical healing of the body, along with many other various benefits, some of which are as follows: Read More
Eat Real Food
Most people, especially women, are afraid of carbs but the reality of the situation is that you need about 1200 calories of carbohydrates each day for your regular activities. For people who are into sports or have an overactive lifestyle need up to 2000 calories a day. Well just because you’re already above 40, doesn’t mean you need to cut down on your carb intake. In fact you’ll need to maintain it at 1200 calories a day in order to get by and of course you’ll also need all the greens, fruits, dairy products and a little oil.
Take Olga Kotelko for example, she’s a retired schoolteacher from West Vancouver, Canada and she’s 94 years old and yet 17 years back when she was 77, she was still able to compete in the “masters” track and field competition, for participants age 35 and over! Nine years ago she got almost 20 world records in a single year and she was already 85 years old at that time, mind you. Today she can still do high jumps and long jumps and she’s even competitive at it sometimes. Read More

The Magic of Your Subconscious Mind
I am lining up at the natatorium to start my 250-meter swim, which is the beginning of a so-called sprint-triathlon in our hometown. I am towards the end of the line, start number 245, in between an older gentleman and a younger lady of Asian descent. Having to wait in line for at least one hour, we ended up being very nice conversation partners. After my hike to the 19,200 ft. summit of Kilimanjaro just a month prior to this event, which gave the saying that “the sky is the limit” has a totally new meaning, I feel that this is going to be easy. I am sure I’ll have enough oxygen to do this swim, the 13-mile bike ride and 3 mile run. My start position was based on the time specified for the swim and the total time I entered when I registered. My previous race time was 1:42:00, so to challenge myself, I wrote down 1:39:00 as my estimated finish time. This is where the power of the subconscious mind comes in, but about that later.
After about 30 minutes I am finally at the front of the line Read More
