Why finding an alternative to soft drinks makes so much sense…

It is so important that people realise the dangers of drinking soft drinks regularly.  It is clear they do not when you look at the global proliferation of name brands of soft drinks.

Read HERE how a family in New Zealand found out the hard way that drinking soft drinks is not as fun as the advertisements would lead you to believe. A woman dies as a result of her addiction with an extremely popular soft drink.

We did have an article in our issue 6 which discusses the dangers of soft drinks and offers you a healthy, tasty alternative. Stay informed and stay healthy! It is important for you and your family.

Seriously, this is not good for you. Whatever you think you are achieving by eating margarine, it’s not worth it.  Try coconut oil instead!  It is so much better for you and may even stop you from developing Alzheimer’s Disease.  Have a look  at the story below:

What are you really eating?

Did you know that 29 Million tons of anti-biotics is used in animal feed in the USA last year? Imagine the weight of 29 million cars! This is going into all conventional animal farms that produce meat, milk, cheese and eggs. Here is another reason to consider using organically produced goods. This is one of the reasons we are now faced with “super-bugs” – these bacteria that can resist most known anti-biotics. Microbes are now known to communicate with each-other and they alter themselves genetically to overcome the anti-biotics. This is another reason why it is so important to nourish yourselves daily with pro-biotics, to keep a good balance of friendly bacteria in your system. This boosts your immune system and helps you to resist and overcome infections.

yay-7992372Chicken not what it used to be…

Like to eat chicken? Well you may not know but today conventional farmers can raise birds in almost half the time and they are much larger. It used to take 70 days to raise a bird to “process” but now it is only 48 days. In fact they have been re-engineered to have larger breasts. So large that towards “harvest” time they are so heavy some of them can not stand up and some die at this time in their cooped up conditions.

Our food chain is getting a bit scary. – There is great merit in considering organic free range chicken. We will have more on this in the future, as it has changed so much in the last 50 years. This is faster than at any time in human evolution.

Introducing solids – nourishing your baby

By Lisa Guy, ND

Providing your baby with a nutritious wholesome diet is one of the most important things you can do as a parent. During this time of rapid growth and development, babies need to be given all the essential nutrients for proper brain and nervous system development and healthy immune function. Introducing your baby to healthy foods when they are very young will reduce the risk of them developing allergies and illness in childhood and help set up the foundations of good health for the rest of their lives.

Weaning your baby from milk to solids is such an exciting and important milestone for both you and your baby. Knowing the best foods to give when, however, can prove to be a little challenging for many first time parents.

Breast is best

Breast milk is the ultimate baby super food designed specifically to give your baby the very best start in life. Breast milk contains essential nutrients for optimal growth and development and protection from illness.  Breast milk should be your baby’s main source of nourishment for the first 6 months and ideally maintained for the first year.

Until your baby’s immune system has matured, breast milk offers an extremely important role in protecting your baby’s health. Breast milk is rich in immune boosting factors including T-cells and antibodies, which protects against a number of infections and diseases such as gastrointestinal and urinary tract infections and ear and eye […]

White poison –

Here is an excerpt from an article written by Dr. Bruce Fife from our issue 6 called Nature’s Soft Drink – The details are scary, thankfully there is a very healthy alternative.

—————-

Take a glass and fill it with 10 spoonfuls of granulated sugar. No, you’re not going to make a cake, this is a visual exercise. I want you to imagine yourself “drinking” the sugar like you would a glass of water. This is how much sugar you would consume if you drank a 12-ounce serving of Coca-Cola, or any other carbonated drink for that matter. Each 12-ounce serving of soda contains the equivalent of 10 or more teaspoons of sugar (mostly in the form of high fructose corn syrup).
The thought of eating this much sugar at one time is sickening, yet every time you or your children drink a soda, this is the amount of sugar you get. If you order the large sizes often available at convenience stores and fast food restaurants you can take in two or three times this amount in one sitting. It’s no wonder that soft drinks are called “liquid candy.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that people limit added sugar to 10 percent or less of their daily calorie consumption. For example, an average adult who consumes 2,000 calories a day should limit himself to 10 teaspoons of added sugar. That’s the amount found in one average 12-ounce soft drink. We get sugar from many other sources of food throughout the day—pancakes, breakfast cereals, sweet breads, candy, snack cakes, etc. The 10 teaspoon maximum represents the amount from all sources, so even one 12-ounce drink is over the limit.
An alternative to sweetened beverages are the diet or […]

Alkalizing your Diet – Extremely important for good health!

Alkalizing your Diet –

This is the first part of ND Lisa Guy’s article on this topic which is in our issue 6. It is a very important health issue not understood by many. 

The body has an acid-alkaline ratio called it’s pH. Maintaining a healthy pH
is extremely important for good health and prevention of disease. The body
continually works on balancing the pH of its fluids and tissues, however if
this balance is compromised we can become more vulnerable to illness and
disease.

If the body becomes too acidic – called ‘acidosis’ – it can contribute to a
range of conditions including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes,
immune deficiencies, accelerated free radical damage, premature aging,
and osteoporosis. Acidic environments also encourage the growth of fungus,
bacteria and viruses.

Our diets play a big role in keeping our body’s pH in check. Acidosis is very
common in today’s society due to our poor diets reliant on acid-forming
foods such as processed sugary foods and animal products, and not enough
alkaline-forming foods such fresh fruits and vegetables.

There is a difference however between acidic foods such as lemons and acid-
forming foods. Lemons are acidic because they contain citric acid, however
when they are digested they become an alkaline-forming food.

During digestion, foods change their chemistry. Whether a food is alkaline
or acidic is based on its mineral content and residue that remains after the
food is digested. Energy is derived from foods by oxidation, which produces a
residue or ash. Some foods leave an ‘acid ash’ (from acid forming foods) and
some leave an ‘alkaline ash’ (from alkaline forming foods).

For optimum health and prevention of disease your diet should be more
alkaline than acidic, 80% alkaline to 20% acid forming foods is recommended. (The whole article […]

Your Liver and Allergies

Do you have allergies? Perhaps you didn’t know the role your liver plays.

Allergies are related to poor liver function, which reduces the liver’s efficiency in cleansing the blood of toxins (such as antibodies and chemicals).  Such toxins over stimulate the immune system causing it to pour out inflammatory chemicals (histamine, mucus, etc.) which may cause;  itchy rashes, hives, etc.

These problems are generally associated with reduced ability of the liver to break down chemicals and proteins (antigens) in the detoxification pathways. Therefore it is always necessary to improve liver function in such cases, and the use of a powerful natural liver tonic will assist in improving the detoxification pathways in the liver.

Our issue 6 covers this in greater detail.
