A Few Words About Sprouting

Sprouting seeds beans grains recipe directions

I feel I need to say a few words about sprouting. The thought of sprouting seeds, beans and grains can seem obsessive, time consuming and hard to do. I know this because that is what I used to think. Sprouting does not need to be this big mysterious thing. Just the opposite, it is easy and takes less time than toasting a bagel. Sprouting will save money at the market. For pennies sprouted grains, seeds and beans deliver a big pay off. Because of the magic of sprouting, acid foods become an alkaline powerhouse of enzymes, vitamins, minerals and proteins. Once sprouted beans become a high pH food, beans no longer cause gas, bloat or heartburn, because they are more easily digested and assimilated they actually improve the efficiency of digestion.

Svaroopa Yoga is a gentle restorative style of yoga and is appropriate for any body. It is easy to break a dead branch, but it is almost impossible to break a sapling. Our body is no different. If we don’t keep our muscles supple and stretched old age will creep up on us much faster, or at least we will feel that way. These poses also can support any healing process while furthering personal growth and transformation. While at the same time helping you develop transcendent inner experiences. While doing these poses try practicing deep breathing to bring as much life giving oxygen into every molecule of your being.  

Cheat Healthy Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse

Years ago when I was being trained as a Nutritionist’s assistant, I learned many little tricks to stay healthy. One thing that I now teach — if you are going to cheat on your diet, always cheat healthy. If making the best choice in any situation is all you can do, then you’ve done your best... move on. If I know a food is going to make me sick or lower my pH for a few days, the first thing I ask myself, is this food yummy enough to warrant how bad I will feel later? The little voice in my head usually warns, “nope not worth it!” The following recipe is decadent and satisfying, yet healthy. Believe it or not, it’s possible to achieve both.

Spotlight on Macro Greens™

Macro Greens alkalizing whole food source morning smoothie gluten-free vegan raw

My family and I have been adding Macro Greens to our daily diet for many years. It’s our secret weapon for keeping alkaline and getting the wholesome nutrients we might otherwise be missing. We all lead active lives and don’t always have the time to juice or eat the way we know we should. Macro Greens is that great pick-me-up snack between meals or as part of our morning smoothie that keeps us on track — a true nutrient rich super-food for adults and children alike.

Why Test Body Fluids for pH?

urine saliva basal body temperature ph thyroid high blood pressure cholesterol

There are many in the healthcare field today to whom testing urine or saliva pH is considered quackery. I don’t agree. For me regular pH testing is not that different from testing one’s temperature. We know our body temperature can tell a great deal about the state of our health. For example, many women use the temperature method as an effective and natural birth control. By charting a woman’s basal body temperature every morning she knows when she is ovulating. Immediately after ovulation the body temperature will go slightly higher, a fraction of a degree tells a lot. Tracking temperature can also tell a great deal about thyroid function. Chronically low basal temperatures can mean a low thyroid function. We check a child’s temperature when sick to make sure it doesn’t go dangerously high and cause brain damage. If a person’s temperature dips too low hyperthermia will result. Just think how a change in temperature affects water. In the food industry the temperature of food storage can mean the difference between safe food and foods that poison.

Our God Given Right

Velaqua Portable Water Enhacement System Alkaline Machine

My belief is that affordable high pH mineral rich water from a clean pure source is our God given right.  With that same principle in mind I now offer Velaqua, an affordable portable enhanced water system. With Velaqua everyone can enjoy fresh, healthy, natural drinking water without spending a small fortune on water machines costing thousands of dollars or on expensive bottled water. Velaqua is a revolutionary portable water enrichment system that duplicates nature's water purification and filtration process using gravity instead of electricity, chemicals or other artificial methods.

Kale A True Super Food

For some time now my husband and I have been juicing a fresh vegetable and kale juice morning cocktail. We are amazed at the all day lift that eight ounces of pure energy gives us. Then from time to time, I will to a three to five day juice fast. This may sound extreme, but for me, not as extreme as becoming old and infirm. The old part of that statement is expected, even hoped for, it’s the second part that I wish to avoid. It bothers me that right now our nation’s focus is on health care rather than wellness care. The message constantly delivered from the pharmaceutical and medical communities is that without their drugs we will fall apart. I disagree.

Is the Staff of Life Beating You Over the Head?

Gluten Free Celiac Disease wheat digestion bloating fatigue joint pain

For the fortunate it is impossible to imagine life without good health? Not so for everyone, in fact not for most. I believe that just because a problem has not been diagnosed does not make it any less real or any less painful and destructive. When I first wrote The Feel Good Food Guide I had no idea how widespread the sensitivities toward wheat and all gluten grains had become. It’s been over 20 years since we went gluten-free, long before it became a health fad. For me avoiding gluten is not a fad, but rather a life saving necessity as it is for anyone suffering with celiac disease also known as Celiac Spru.

Alkalinity is Essential for Life

Maintaining alkalinity is essential for life, health and vitality. All leading biochemists and medical physiologists have recognized acid/alkaline ratios as the most important measure of a balanced and healthy body. Researchers have known, since the 1930's, that the maintenance of a balanced pH is critical to cellular health. We live and die at the cellular level. Our body fluids must remain alkaline in order to allow the acid activity of our cells dividing. In order to understand pH balance, it is necessary to realize all the 75 trillion cells of the human body are slightly acidic and must exist in a slightly alkaline environment (the body fluid) if cells are to remain healthy and produce energy.
