September 19, 2016 at 3:07 am

Hunter-gatherers weren’t trying to get fit, they were just having fun

Nearly 70 percent of people paying for gym memberships never go to the gym. 80 percent who join the gym in January – most likely as a New Year’s Resolution – quit within five months.

Wildfitness” Founder Tara Wood says this is because our bodies and minds were not designed for gyms, and no matter how much we try to beat them into submission, eventually they refuse to cooperate.

Whole Foods Teams Up With Monsanto to Kill GMO Labeling Bill

July 3, 2016 at 11:48 pm




Whole Foods, Organic Valley and Stoneyfield have teamed up with Monsanto and Dupont to nullify Vermont’s new GMO labeling law that now requires companies to disclose the genetically engineered ingredients hiding in nearly 75 percent of processed foods in this country.

Food Democracy Now reported last week that the self-described “organic companies” have brokered a last-minute backroom deal with the “devil” food giants that guts a national GMO labeling bill and overturns Vermont’s new state law.

Thanks to Vermont’s historic legislation, which went into effect July 1, many major food companies like Campbell’s, General Mills, Pepsi, Nestle and Smucker’s have already started labeling their products as “partially produced with genetic engineering.”

Kombucha Made Easy

June 3, 2016 at 7:47 pm




IMG_1884-768x1028One taste of the sparkling, fruity, super elixir and I was hooked. It was fizzy and refreshing like champagne, but loaded with good bacteria, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B 12, which my then vegan body was starving for. It gave me a burst of energy (not the jittery caffeine kind) and mental clarity, and helped me digest my food and cleanse my body.

Beautiful Photos of Mammals Safely “Co-Sleeping” with Their Babies, As They’ve Done for Millions of Years

May 13, 2016 at 8:11 pm

The term “co-sleeping” has always seemed strange to me. It implies parents are doing something special or out-of-the-ordinary by doing what mammals have always done for millions of years – sleep with their babies.

“Are you going to co-sleep?” people asked when I was pregnant. “What kind of co-sleeper are you going to buy?”

At first, I had no idea what they were talking about. Then I became aware of the vast market of overpriced baskets parents could buy to ensure they didn’t “roll over and kill their babies:”

Circumcision Is Male Genital Mutilation

May 10, 2016 at 9:03 pm

It’s as bad as female circumcision

Banana Peel Tea Helps with Insomnia

[wp_ad_camp_1]13169798_10103864651239852_1793777295_oOne in five Americans suffer from sleep disorders or sleep deprivation, and two-thirds get less than the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep, according to the CDC. As a result, nearly 9 million Americans were on prescription sleeping pills as of 2013.

With side effects including “dizziness, memory loss, confusion, depression, anxiety, aggressive behavior, hallucinations and thoughts of suicide,” people popping America’s leading sleeping pill – Ambien – might be relieved to know there’s a natural alternative with zero negative side effects… and it costs about 30 cents a pop…

Forget Overpriced Packaged Coconut Water, Drink Straight from the Coconut

April 27, 2016 at 12:46 am

It’s cheaper, healthier, more sustainable and easy

[wp_ad_camp_1]

11666-National-Blvd-300x225Strolling through the cold beverage section in Whole Foods today, my eyes landed on the coconut water. Loaded with potassium, magnesium, calcium and other minerals most Americans are lacking, it’s more hydrating and balancing than plain water and has become a new favorite of mine.

I couldn’t decide between the large 365 brand bottle for $3, or the much smaller Harmless Harvest brand bottle for $5. Harmless Harvest obviously was the higher quality product, as it is “raw” (never heated) and organic. Whole Foods 365 brand, along with the rest are flash pasteurized which kills the enzymes and destroys some of the nutrients. But I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend $4 on a tiny plastic bottle of electrolyte water.

Is GMO Corn Causing the “Leaky Gut” Epidemic?

March 10, 2016 at 1:08 am

Leaky-Gut-Symptoms-and-EffectsIt has been estimated that nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population has some degree of leaky gut syndrome – a condition where holes in our intestines let food particles and toxins into our blood stream. The medical-industrial complex does not recognize it as a legitimate condition, but alternative healthcare practitioners claim “leaky gut” is the main culprit behind food allergies, auto-immune disorders (like lupus), eczema, multiple sclerosis, and even diabetes and cancer.

Author of Seeds of Deception Jeffrey Smith explains how Monsanto’s Bt corn – which is in the vast majority of processed foods and animal products in America – is literally ripping our guts apart:

Bees Love Cannabis, Won’t Touch GMO Corn

March 6, 2016 at 5:56 am




While 37 million bees dropped dead in Canada last week, near a freshly planted field of GMO corn, about a million lucky bees in France are alive and well, taste testing several varieties of cannabis.
