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.

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.

Lead by Example

Lead by Example

July 23 to August 22 - Zodiac Sign: Leo - Element: Fire - Color: Orange-Yellow

I believe the most important thing a woman can do for her family and friends is to be selfish. Yes, selfish. I don't mean hang out at the spa while her children are barefoot and hungry. I am talking about taking the best possible care of herself and in doing so, lead by example. Children of all ages learn by what they see, not by what you tell them. I know this to be true because I have a husband and have raised two sons. They have never changed a behavior because of a lecture, but they have changed by following my lead. Even if you don't have a husband or children it works the same with friends and co-workers. Just by being healthy and confident I think women have the power to change the world. The family unit may be the backbone of our civilization, but it's women who give the family its heart. The feminine is a powerful force of nature. This goes for you guys too. The true feminine is not a weakness, rather a strength. It allows us to show empathy, compassion and cooperation. Let’s face it our out-of-balance world could use a few more men and women with those traits.

Home Is Where the Heart Is

June 21 to July 22 - Zodiac Sign: Cancer - Element: Water - Color: Orange

The good old summer time - this time of year embodies emotional expression, domestic harmony, family relationships, our connection to the past and children. This is a wonderful time of year to nurture both body and soul. Mother nature herself is in full swing ripeness. I can think of no better time to sentimentalize family, home and the richness of friendships. Those who will be able to give and receive more love as they become less attached to their worries and concerns about individual relationships, will find bountiful inner peace. Gemini is attuned to the color orange on the vibrational spectrum. Orange is associated with sociability, creativity and happiness. Orange is the color of the sacral chakra, the energy center of procreation, pleasure, feeling and emotions. The warming color orange can help to encourage free expression of enjoyment and more pleasure in our relationships. It can also help us let go of negative thought patterns.

With Every Breath I Take

May 21 to June 20 - Zodiac Sign: Gemini - Element: Air - Color: Red-Orange

If our first priority is personal health, then what should we put at the top of the list? Look at it this way, the average person can only survive three minutes without air, three days without water and three weeks without food. The way I see it, that makes air quality a priority for good health — even for life itself. These facts make the air we breath very important to our overall health. In conjunction with safe cleaning supplies, making the indoor air safe and clean with a good air purifier is a must. Why use an Air Purifier? Every day the average adult breathes in up to 900 cubic feet of air. That amount of air makes the residual residue from air borne pollutants enough to do harm. The damage is invisible, slow and insidious, but real none the less.

How Food Combining Works

How Food Combining Works Digestive Disorders Acid Reflux Heartburn GERD

If you suffer from digestive disorders such as acid reflux, heartburn or GERD, it may be helpful to follow proper food combining practices. Food combining is a principal of eating simply for health. It was called natural hygiene by Russell Trall and biologic living by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg. No matter what name you use, the basic principal is the same;  eating for optimal intestinal health. The belief being that all disease begins in the gut. Intestinal flora is a delicate balance of beneficial and undesirable bacteria. When food isn’t properly combined a whole host of problems can occur. We should never have more than three meals at any one time residing in our gut. Yet most Americans may have as many as ten or twelve meals stacked up. This allows the food to putrefy and release a whole host of toxins and parasites into the blood stream. This is waste, and should never permeate your intestinal tract and enter the blood stream. Bottom line, when you clean-up your gut the result is a whole body healthier you. 

Ground Yourself and Release Tension

Ground Yourself and Release Tension Meditation Macro Greens EMF Harmonizer

April 20 to May 20 - Zodiac Sign: Taurus - Element: Earth - Color: Red

When I first started meditation, my goal was to have an out of body experience. I was searching for some ethereal answer from outside of myself. Straining mentally to reach out into the outer reaches of the cosmos and by doing so, achieve a greater understanding of some unknown and mysterious Universal Law. I smile when I think of those days. I now know that all the answers I need have been hardwired within my DNA. It wasn't until I started grounding myself that the answers I so desperately wanted started to emerge. What a beautiful and elegant creation we are, sublimely bathed in the experience of being human. I have learned to consider sacred the organic vessel which houses the soul. Meditation helps me remember who I am.
