Once again, I have invited an internationally recognized Holistic Freedom Coach and Nutrition Consultant, Ximena Gonzalez to share her wisdom with you.
Whaaaaat?...Saturated Fat is NOT the Demon?
Finally, our nation is waking up to the awareness of this incredibly healing food and it is making the newsstands! Bone broth is having a serious moment. More and more health coaches, nutritionists, and beauty gurus are recommending it for its many benefits, from boosting gut health and fighting inflammation to providing a dose nutrients like magnesium, potassium, calcium, amino acids, and collagen. Fresh homemade broth or stock is an anti-aging bomb, magical healing food, and regarded as an important staple not just in the Weston A. Price Foundation diet, but apparently, BROTH is the new STARBUCKS!
100% grassfed beef is much higher in several vitamins, and contains Omega-3s which are anti-inflammatory. In contrast, grain feeding a cow fattens it up with inflammatory fats that often cause health problems.
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:
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.

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?
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.
We have only just barely entered the new year....an amazing opportunity to restart, refresh and make improvements in our lifestyles. How many New Year’s resolutions have you made for 2016? What were they?
How many have you already broken?
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.
