Gotta LOVE: The Benefits of Raw Cow Butter

Gotta LOVE: The Benefits of Raw Cow Butter

Many people avoid eating butter with the belief that it’s full of “evil” saturated fats. But Dr. Joseph Mercola, Paul Chek and the Western A. Price Foundation clarify that butter and saturated fats promote health. Old-fashioned raw butter from grass-fed cows’ milk contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which helps fight diseases like cancer, diabetes and also helps you lose weight. This time of the year is the best opportunity to stock up on the dark yellow wonderful butter and GHEE  from Miller's Organic Farm.

Is Your (Healthy) Food Selection Making You Sick?

Is Your (Healthy) Food Selection Making You Sick?

Is Your (Healthy & Organic) Food Selection Making You Sick?

Are you suffering from a stubborn health problem that won't go away no matter what you try? 

YOU MAY NEED FOOD INTOLERANCE TESTING

Consider some facts:

Even the seemingly “healthiest” organic, raw, anti-inflammatory superfoods like wild Alaskan salmon, kale, garlic, apple, broccoli or any other food can provoke “sensitivity” reactions.  Medical Research has shown that sensitivities to foods and food-chemicals can lead to a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems.  If food sensitivities are at the root of your health problems and you don’t address them, then no matter what else you do to get better, your health problems will remain.

Chronic conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, migraine and other headaches, weight imbalances, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, skin eruptions, brain fog and many other uncomfortable health problems are often directly related to the inflammatory effects caused by food and food-chemical sensitivities.

Although there are several types of food-induced inflammatory reactions (food allergy, celiac disease, and sensitivities), sensitivities are by far the most common and by far the most challenging for many reasons:

  1. Food sensitivity reactions can be delayed by hours or even days making it difficult to establish a cause and effect relationship between what we eat and any symptoms caused by specific foods in our diet.

  2. Food sensitivities are often does-dependent, meaning a small amount of a reactive food doesn’t cause any noticeable effect - but a large amount does.  And because we eat so many different foods every day in varying amounts, often no clear pattern emerges and we can’t figure out what foods are good or bad.

  3. Naturally occurring food-chemicals can be inflammation and symptom-provoking and also occur in varying amounts in the foods we eat.

  4. With food allergy, it is uncommon to be allergic to more than 1 or 2 foods; but with sensitivities, because of the underlying reasons food sensitivities develop, it is very common to have many reactive foods and food chemicals.

  5. Reactive foods vary substantially from person to person, and even so-called healthy foods like salmon, garlic, parsley, broccoli and blueberries may be problematic for you.

MRT: The Best Test for Diet-Induced Inflammation

The first step in overcoming symptoms associated with food sensitivities is to identify your reactive foods.  This is now a much easier and faster process with the Mediator Release Test (MRT).  MRT is patented and is the most advanced and complete blood test available for identifying sensitivity reactions.

MRT was invented by Dr. Mark Pasula, the same Immunologist who invented the ALCAT Test.  However, MRT is a much more advanced technology than his earlier invention and this translates directly into better clinical results. Compared with other methods of managing food sensitivities, MRT routinely produces the most complete clinical improvement in the shortest time.

Because MRT accounts for all types of sensitivity based inflammatory pathways, and because MRT is able to quantify the inflammatory response, MRT makes identifyingyour truly health foods much easier.  This means MRT will give you faster and more complete relief than any other method. In fact, independent studies confirm MRT is the most accurate blood test there is for food and food-chemical reactions.

How to Get Tested:

MRT® is a blood test that quantifies the inflammatory response to foods and food-chemicals, letting you know not just which foods you should stay away from, but more importantly which foods are your BEST foods – those with the lowest level of reactivity.

Asparagus – Who knew?

Asparagus – Who knew?

This is from a friend:

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months.

Foundation of Youth: Prevent Skin Aging Naturally

Foundation of Youth: Prevent Skin Aging Naturally

As we get older, many of the concerns we have for our skin are aesthetic ones: wrinkles, spots, and loss of elasticity. These signs can also be highly indicative of our overall internal health, beyond what meets the eye. Our skin is not a simple outer layer which covers and contains our anatomy, but is actually the largest vital organ we possess. It is composed of many complex nerve, gland, and tissue systems that work in synergy to defend the body against disease. Practicing excellent skin health is imperative, not only to retain its radiant and youthful appearance throughout our later years, but also to support its important role as a barrier between ourselves and the environment. The best and easiest way to do this is from the inside out. Thus, an ideal skin care regimen begins with a highly nourishing diet.

Are you an “Healthy human”, “Superhuman” or a “Ticking Stress Bomb”?

Are you an “Healthy human”, “Superhuman” or a “Ticking Stress Bomb”?

Summer is is over. School is back on. Work schedules tighten up again. Yes, being busy, overwhelmed and tired has been glamorized! Somehow people learned to get their sense of worth based on what they do, how much they do and how tired they are as a result of their “doing”.

During conversations it´s not rare to hear people “complaining” about how stressed they are. However the complaint quickly turns into a competition for who is juggling more while attaching a sense of pride to it. Typically the winner is the “superhuman” the person who is juggling the most with the least time to eat, sleep and take care of other basic “human” needs.

The Joys of Home Cooking: is eating out making you fat, sick and tired?

Eating out may be eating out your stomach, your liver, your heart, and your lungs. Because of our busy schedules, many of us find ourselves eating out several times a week; some of us eat out almost every meal.

Restaurant food is some of the most processed food you can put in your mouth. The commercial fake food arrives in big-food company trucks (90 percent of all restaurants get virtually the same food) and is lovingly prepared using can openers and microwaves.

A dear friend of mine was in sheer horror when she saw me eat six eggs for breakfast. She said he loves the taste of eggs, but cannot eat them. I asked: “Why not?” She replied: “Because I am scared of high cholesterol and my doctor told me to stop eating eggs” – does this sound familiar?
