April 2018 Newsletter: Pets Are People Too!

Pets Are People Too!

Happy Spring! I am excited to devote this newsletter issue to pets. This past Thursday we had a wonderful guest speaker for our Open House. Sue Howell, DVM, CVFT, CVA of Thrive Wholistic Veterinary Care in Thiensville. Sue has a certification in Food Therapy and Acupuncture from the Chi Institute of Chinese Veterinary Medicine and receives ongoing training in Nutrition Response Testing.

Sue gave an excellent presentation on wholistic care for pets explaining the power of whole foods, holistic nutrition, and food energetics, concentrating on cats and dogs. Just like humans, our pets are facing the same increasing rates of disease from eating highly processed food – not what they were designed to eat. For my top three takeaways from the talk, see below.

I remember a couple of years ago I was astounded when I read that 70% of household pets are on at least one medication!! So, if you have a sick pet or want to improve the health of your pet, I strongly suggest you give Dr. Sue a call. Her information is below:

The Three Most Important Pet Food Facts I Learned

First, while most mammals such as humans have amylase in their saliva cats and dogs do not. This is highly significant and helps to explain even further why our pets have become so sick from their highly processed and high carbohydrate foods. Amylase is an enzyme to digest carbohydrates. This means that in cats and dogs carbohydrates are not digested at all until they reach the small intestines. With a higher than natural amount of carbohydrates in their diets, this is likely interfering with their digestion and contributing to the development of diseases as they are not able to efficiently digest, process, and utilize a high amount of carbohydrates.

Second, variety is very important. While the main stream veterinary medicine tells you that feeding your pet the same food is good for your pet, otherwise they will have digestive issues, the exact opposite is actually true. Because they are eating the same food they lose some of the ability to digest a variety of foods, thus resulting in the digestive problems. A variety of foods also ensures that they get all the nutrients they need from a variety of sources.

Third, the nutritional diets designed for pets and described on pet food labels are based on the minimum of specific nutrients they need. This is similar in that the daily recommended nutrient for humans is actually the minimum amount of a specific vitamin or mineral you will not get a specific disease associated with a vitamin deficiency. These are not recommendations for vital health. As we all know, the minimum is not the optimal!

 

Remember: You Were Designed to Feel Good!!

My focus remains on humans, and here is a recent quote from a happy client:

“I am amazed at how good I feel and how quickly I felt better after seeing you and getting sincerely on board with my health.  With your expertise and my desire I am seeing a huge improvement in my health and am excited to see where I will be in a month (my next appointment).  I am energized and enthusiastic to continue my progress and am thankful for your guidance and knowledge.” C.K.

March 2018 Newsletter: Take A Break From The Madness!!

It’s that time of the year – March Madness!! This month’s newsletter will be brief as I have my own version of March Madness under way!! A very busy client schedule and an upcoming trip to one of my favorite learning opportunities of the year – Concordia 2018 – presented by Physica Energetics. I’ve mentioned in the past one of the favorite parts of my job is learning new information to benefit my clients. Each time I go to one of these seminars I come back with new pearls of wisdom to share.

A couple of reminders…

Reminder 1: I will be out of the office Tuesday, March 6 through Friday March 9 to attend a seminar. I will be back in the office Monday, March 12. Please let me know if you need to pick up any supplements next Monday March 5th and I will gladly have them ready for you.

Reminder 2: My next Open House will be March 29 at 7:15 PM. I have a special guest, Dr. Sue Howell, DVM, CVFT, CVA, the owner of Thrive Holistic Veterinary Care in Thiensville. Here’s a link to her website: https://thrivepetvet.com/.

In a nutshell, Sue does what I do, but for your dog or cat! She also does acupuncture on pets with great results!! Our dog Barry enjoyed his session too! And he loves his supplements!!

Green Med Info

In today’s world of “fake news” and “I found this on Google” it is a challenge to find reliable and accurate information. Particularly as it pertains to your health. One of my favorite sites for interesting and provocative information is GreenMedInfo. They cover the whole spectrum from what foods are good for you and why to the vaccine debate!

Click here to take a look: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/.

Happy Clients

The most favorite part of my job is helping people become healthier. There is nothing more satisfying than a client who follows the program and gets awesome results. Here are two of the latest examples.

“I want to thank you so much for helping me get my body back in nutritional health!  All the supplements you had me take were just what my body needed.  My skin rashes have cleared up, I have more energy and alertness, I am able to eat some things I couldn’t before and I feel better overall than I have for a long time!!! I shall definitely recommend you to my friends who are looking for better overall health!!”

“Thank you for that explanation. I really didn’t know the pain would lessen. I thought Dr. [chiropractor] was my only way of getting more comfortable. You are truly a blessing in my life. I’m so thankful Dr. [chiropractor] referred me to you.”

 

February 2018 Newsletter: Spread the Love

 Spread the love this February with the gift of a healthy detox or weight loss program for you and your loved ones.

 

February is here and with that a desire to adopt a healthier lifestyle is a key goal for many people. Every day clients ask me how they can remove toxins and extra body fat to boost their energy levels and lose some weight, particularly the extra pounds they gained over the Holiday Season.

At my last Open House we explored the different types of programs that I offer to achieve your objectives and how to best select one that makes the most sense for your lifestyle. This information is summarized in the two articles below.

The first article explains cleanses, purifications, gut cleanses, and weight loss programs to help you decide what is appropriate for you and why these programs can be a success or a failure. The second article discusses why people do not always achieve their weight loss goals on these programs.

What’s Right for You? Detoxification, Weight Loss, or Gut Cleanse?

This is the time of year when we re-focus on our health. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, it is a New Year, so it is time to make changes – eat better, exercise more, and lose weight. Second, many of us recognize the Holiday Season took its toll. We notice a few extra pounds, an overall sensation of not feeling our best, and it seems we’re either getting sick or fighting off a cold or flu. Then the natural human desire to feel better takes hold.

We look for a solution, something to make us feel better. This is typically some type of “diet” or “weight loss program” or “cleanse.” There are many programs to choose from, but the important question is what is best for you. In determining that you need to understand the different types of programs available.

I classify programs into three main categories: purification or detoxification programs, gut purification programs, and weight loss programs.

For the rest of the article click here: What’s Right for You?

Are You Weight Loss Resistant?

Ever notice what happens at the beginning of the year?  The New Year’s resolution.  This is the year you vow to get healthier, to lose those extra pounds, and to keep them off.  The health clubs are jammed with others making the same resolution.  There are lines of people waiting to use the stepping machines and the exercise bikes.  But, within a few short weeks the crowds disappear and there are no more lines.

Why does this happen?  You’ve cut back on the alcohol, are eating salads for lunch, skipping a meal here and there, and are working out hard at the gym.  Yet the pounds are not flying off.  This is not uncommon as over 95% of all diets end in disappointment.  However, don’t be discouraged.  If you read on you’ll learn how you can get lasting results.

January 2018 Newsletter: Happy New Year, Open House and Start the Year Off With A Cleanse!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season and is rearing and ready to go for a Healthy and Happy 2018!

With the start of the New Year there is no better time for a cleanse!! While picking up the exercise is important, it all starts with what you are eating and the 14 day cleanse is the best way to clean up your diet! As mentioned in last month’s newsletter I will be hosting several one-hour group meetings to learn about cleansing. See below for dates and times and special pricing.

My next Open House will be Thursday, January 25 at my office at 7:15 PM. Note the slightly later starting time as I want to give the parking lot a few more minutes to clear out from the dinner crowd at the restaurant. There will be two topics.

Topic 1: Why Cleanse?

Topic 2: Quantum Physics and You!! (Hint: How and why the EMF Phone Chips, EMF Key Chains, Food Freshness Card, and Sleep Chips work!)

 

Open House

Quantum Physics and You – sounds like a very strange title, so what is it all about? At the next Open House, I will be featuring and talking about the products from Nature’s Frequencies. Many of you are already using them – the EMF Phone Chips, the EMF Key Chain, the Sleep Chip, and the Food Freshness Card – to name a few.

At my last Open House, I joked that I was about to risk my career with a demonstration of the Food Freshness Card. Here is what happened. I have samples of a certain bone broth protein that I was muscle testing on many clients because I was strongly considering selling it. However, it failed every test! I asked a colleague of mine who sells it if she tested it on people and she said yes, but everything that comes into the office is put on the Food Freshness Card. So, I decided to try that first in the privacy of one client, which proved successful, so I took the big chance at the Open House and sure enough it worked again. Once the product was on the Food Freshness Card for a few minutes it passed the muscle test!

There is a lot more information on the Nature’s Frequencies website. You can see independent studies of how food stayed fresh longer using the card and read multiple testimonials. Here’s the website: http://www.naturesfrequencies.com/

At the next Open House, I will repeat the demonstration and go into more detail as to why these products work and have product specials!! I hope to see you there!

Food Freshness Card – $50

EMF Cell Phone Chips – $10

EMF Key Chain – $35

 

Cleanse Group Meetings

Had a rough Holiday Season or just feel like losing some weight or feeling a bit healthier? Well, there is no better way than to start the New Year off then with a 14-day Cleanse. I have decided to offer three one-hour group meetings for you to come learn about the cleanse and hopefully purchase your own kit. At this meeting I will be specifically discussing the 14-day Cleanse, but the basic principles apply to all the cleanses I offer. As an added incentive you will receive a sample of five protein bars from Designs for Health with each cleanse purchased. These can be used as a healthy snack during the cleanse.

Here are the dates and times of the meetings that will all be held at my office. Please register early as seating is limited at each session.

December 2017 Newsletter: Happy Holidays, The Gut, The Cleanse, and a Flash Sale

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving and is now looking forward to the rest of the Holiday season – Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Recently I had a very interesting conversation with one of my clients. She and her husband just completed the 14 Day Cleanse and were both extremely pleased with the results in terms of weight loss and overall health. She asked me, “Do you ever watch Dr. Oz?” I said I did not and somewhat facetiously commented that most of what he talks about I have known for several years. Her reply caught my attention! That may be true for me, but to most clients the information is likely new, and I should talk about it. So, that’s what I’m doing!

Apparently, the latest from Dr. Oz is that your health is all about the condition of your gut. Specifically, what is happening with your personal environment or flora (the bacteria, yeasts, etc. that live in your digestive tract). I’m excited to announce that I now have access to a new stool test called GI-MAP that tells you exactly what is going on in your gut and what to do about it. See below for more details on the test and some articles about the gut.

My next Open House will be in February at my office. The date and time will be announced in the January newsletter. Below is a brief preview of the topic – Quantum Physics and You!! (Hint: How and why the EMF Phone Chips, EMF Key Chains, Food Freshness Card, and Sleep Chips work!)

As we approach the New Year, come January some of you will say, “time for a cleanse!” I will be hosting several one-hour group meetings to learn about cleansing. See below for dates and times and special pricing.

Also, I’m having a FLASH SALE of 20% off Vital Proteins whey protein and bone broth collagen products and a few select others. See below for details. Quantities are limited so product availability will be on a first come first serve basis.

It’s All About the Gut

There is no shortage of health news articles about the importance of the gut and your personal flora. I have touched on that subject several times in the past. I have discussed identification via stool and saliva testing, blood testing, and muscle testing.

Here’s the latest – the GI-MAP™ a DNA Stool Analysis from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory. The test assesses everyone’s microbiome, identifies healthy and unhealthy microorganisms, and provides a personalized nutritional protocol. The test costs $359 prepaid and may be covered by insurance. You can pick up a test kit from me, you pay the lab directly, and you consult with me regarding the results. For more information on the test click here: http://diagnosticsolutionslab.com/

Thermal Imaging Scans Available December 28

On December 28 from 8:30 AM until 12:00 PM, Jenny Steger from The Longevity Center will again be offering thermal scans at my office. DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging or Thermography) is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualize and quantify changes in skin surface temperature. An infrared scanning device is used to convert infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color on a monitor. This visual image graphically maps the body temperature and is referred to as a thermogram.

November 2017 Newsletter: Immune System Boosting Ideas as You Prepare for the Cold and Flu Season

Winter is just around the corner and with it the approaching cold and flu season. This newsletter and my next Open House on November 16 will focus on this topic. First, I will be covering a basic overview of the immune system. Second, I will be offering natural solutions for preventing and reversing auto-immune conditions. Third, I will be providing a list the go-to supplements for when you start to feel something coming on.

The next Open House “All About Immunity” will be November 16 at 7:00 PM. Please note that the Open House will be at my office; 10040 N. Port Washington Road in Mequon. There will be two main topics. First, we will look at the everyday functioning of the immune system and how our immune system handles acute events. Second, we will look at stealth pathogens. Sounds scary, perfect for Halloween! But this topic is very serious. Stealth pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungus, yeasts, mold, parasites, and mycoplasmas that cause chronic infections and years of unexplained symptoms. A clue to when a stealth pathogen is involved is when the client says, “I’ve never been well since…” One of my colleagues, Kerry Bone captures the essence of it by calling it “NBWS.”

The Immune System: Basic Overview
The immune system is frequently used to describe one of the major systems of the body. There are different ways to look at its actual components. In some circles, the entire body is considered the immune system because everything influences immunity. In the wholistic approach, the whole body – the skin, digestion, hormones, circulation, etc. all play a role in keeping us healthy.

For the rest of the article click here: http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=780

Natural Solutions for Preventing and Reversing Auto Immune Conditions
Did you know the current list of autoimmune diseases is now over 150 and continues to grow? We can now say that there is an autoimmune epidemic underway in the United States. We all know at least one person who suffers from an autoimmune condition. In most cases they are offered little help from traditional medicine. The best case is to “manage” it to keep the symptoms as reduced as possible. There is never any mention of a possible reversal of the condition. Fortunately, many natural/holistic practitioners across the country are having success in preventing and reversing autoimmune conditions every day. I recently completed a six-week training called the Autoimmune Mastery Program with Dr. Michael Gaeta, one of the country’s leading natural health authorities. This course focused on this very topic – the prevention and reversal of autoimmune conditions.

For the rest of the article click here: http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=742.

The Cold and Flu Season Awaits
Winter is just around the corner. With the colder weather comes the cold and flu season. As I have mentioned previously I recommend that all clients have on hand Congaplex Chewable and Andrographis Complex by Standard Process – a great way to boost your immune system when you feel something coming on. Take 1-2 Congaplex every hour and 1 Andrographis Complex every 4 hours while awake and usually in a day or two you will be feeling yourself again.

Please let me know if you need to stock up! Or better yet, get them for a special price at the Open House!

Top Quality Kosher Protein Bars

I am excited to announce that I have finally found a source for Kosher and top quality protein bars. Ironically, it was right under my nose for the past few years. For some reason I failed to realize that all the protein bars made by Designs for Health are Kosher, carrying the OU mark. These bars come in these great tasting flavors: Cherry, Chocolate Mint, Coconut, Coconut Almond, Double Dark Chocolate (Susana’s favorite), Mixed Berry, Vanilla Almond, Mocha (my favorite), Peanut Butter (Mollie’s favorite), Chocolate Almond, and Chocolate. You can order them through me or purchase direct from the following link: https://brwellness.ehealthpro.com/

October 2017 Newsletter: Stealth Pathogens, Breast Cancer Awareness, Bone Broth and Collagen

Stealth Pathogens! Sounds scary, like something out of a horror movie. Well, it is and is something that I definitely see with my clients. One of my colleagues Kerry Bone captures the essence of it by calling it “NBWS.” A clue to when a stealth pathogen is involved is when the client says, “I’ve never been well since…” This will be the topic of my next Open House – November 16 at 7:00 – and we’ll be back at my office at 10040 N. Port Washington Road in Mequon.

The new nutrition buzz words are bone broth and collagen. What is this all about? See below.

The Jewish Holidays continue during the month of October and as such the office will be closed and I will be unavailable from late afternoon Wednesday October 4 through Saturday October 7 and again the following week from late afternoon Wednesday October 11 through the morning of Monday October 16. So, please plan accordingly if you need supplements!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is breast cancer awareness month. Awareness includes both prevention and detection. It seems mainstream medicine focuses on detection and use of mammograms. And, as it seems with all health related issues there are multiple perspectives. Are mammograms safe? Are they effective? How often should they be done? Is thermography a viable alternative?

On October 10, Jenny Steger from The Longevity Center will be offering thermal scans at my office. DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging or Thermography) is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualize and quantify changes in skin surface temperature. An infrared scanning device is used to convert infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color on a monitor. This visual image graphically maps the body temperature and is referred to as a thermogram.

As mentioned above there is some controversy regarding the safety and effectiveness of mammograms. From GreenMed Info here’s http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/hidden-dangers-mammograms-every-woman-should-know-about

New Products Collagen Bone Broth
The new buzz words in nutrition are bone broth and collagen. Of course, to those of you familiar with the Weston Price Foundation this is nothing new to you! But for the rest of the world it is big news and naturally along with that comes the mass marketing and mass production of products! And with this comes the marketing hype. And with this is some truth and of course some deception.

To help my clients get the best products on the market I did some extensive research and I am now a distributor for Vital Proteins. For more information on Vital Proteins click here: https://www.vitalproteins.com.

Vital Proteins has a line of products that includes powders of beef collagen, fish collagen, beef bone broth, chicken bone broth, and whey protein with collagen. What’s unique about Vital Proteins is that the base ingredients are organic chickens, grass-fed and pastured beef, and wild fish. This is not the case with most of the competition and particularly some of the leading brands.

For an overview of what these products are read my article about bone broth and collagen by clicking here: http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=774

Or, if you like, give me a call and I’ll explain it to you.

Another Parasite Case Resolved!
Hi Bernie, I wanted to share with you that I had Hydro therapy today and no visible worms! This is great news the [remedies] are working! I hope I test the same with you when I see you! Had to share, you’re one of few I can tell! Hope you have a great evening!

September 2017 Newsletter: Getting Rid of Unwanted Guests, Detoxification, and September Open House

As we begin the transition from Summer to Fall so follows this month’s newsletter. First is the follow up to last month’s article, What Not to Bring Home from Your Summer Vacation entitled Getting Rid of Unwanted Guests. This article takes a closer look at what may be causing your digestive upset and what to do about it.

The change of seasons is also a great time to change our own internal seasons with a detoxification or purification program featured in the second article.

Detoxification will be further explored at my Open House on September 14 at 7 PM – To Detox or Not, That is the Question.

Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm for the last three events, we have decided to hold this Open House “off campus.” We will be meeting at the American Legion Post 457, 6050 W. Mequon Road, Mequon (across from Piggly Wiggly). As always, we will feature wonderful and healthy food, including soup, salads, and gluten-free desserts. There are separate emails with more information and special offers including discounts on detoxification programs, bone broth protein powders, and RXBARs.

Getting Rid of Unwanted Guests

Last month, we learned why sometimes our digestion does not seem quite right and how we are exposed to and host all sorts of unwanted “guests” within our own bodies. Lots of times when the doctor cannot determine what is wrong with you or they tell you it is in your head, it may likely be these unwanted “guests” – parasites, yeast/fungi/mold, viruses, or bacteria that are taking over your body and creating a variety of symptoms.

This is all fine and good, but several questions remain. First, how do I know if a “guest” is the underlying cause of the symptoms? Second, what type of “guest” is it? And third, how do I get rid of it? All these are critical questions.

It is important to be aware of other causes of digestive distress which fall into three categories: food allergies/sensitivities, structural issues in the digestive tract, and ongoing emotional stress.

For the rest of the article click here: http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=767

To Detox or Not, That is the Question

The other day I came across an alarming study. It showed that 287 toxins were found in the blood of newborn babies. One of them was a breakdown product of DDT, the pesticide that has been banned for over 40 years! Toxins enter our environment from a variety of sources and unfortunately, they can remain there for decades. These toxins enter our body via the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and through our skin.

The basic problem we all face is that the world we were designed to live in has changed dramatically. Unfortunately, our bodies have not adapted fast enough to flush out the numerous man-made chemicals, toxins, and pollutants that are present in our daily lives.

Curious about your personal level of toxicity? Click here: http://brwellness.com/docs/toxicity_questionnaire.pdf

Getting rid of these toxins will help you live a longer, healthier life. This detoxification can boost your immune system, clear your mind, balance your hormones, reduce your body fat, and much more.

All detoxification programs are not created equal. You want to be sure to select one that supports the body’s natural two phase detoxification process. This is accomplished providing the nutrients needed to support and balance Phase I and Phase II metabolic pathways.

Come to our Open House on September 14 and learn all about it!

I will be featuring the VegeCleanse-Plus 14 Day Detoxification Program, the Standard Process 21 Day Purification Program, a Gut Detoxification program, and a gallbladder cleanse.

Success Stories

I thought I’d share a couple of recent success stories with you.

—————————————————————————————————————————
Hi Bernie,

After a full blossoming flush eruption in my mouth all day yesterday, I woke up to smooth cheeks! I think we’re making progress and thought you’d care to know 😉

Thanks for your help and I look forward to my next meeting with you.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Thanks very much for sending this, Bernie. I look forward to reading it and sharing with others!

Our family really appreciates all of your help. [Name] has been doing great and your reassuring, thoughtful approach has helped me as well.

August 2017 Newsletter: Tips for a Healthy Summer Vacation

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer. I know for me it is going by way too fast!
Thanks to everyone who attended the Open House a couple of weeks ago. We had a great discussion regarding The Ins and Outs of Digestion! The next Open House will be September 14 at 7:00 PM and the topic will be Fall Cleaning: Do You Really Need to Detox? More details to follow in a few weeks.

In this month’s newsletter, we’ll look at two things you are likely to be exposed to during the summer. One is obvious – the Sun! And the second is not as apparent – critters! These would be parasites, bacteria, fungi, and viruses found in exotic places of travel as well as your own backyard.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter.

Have Fun in the Sun
There are so many areas where the “natural health” world and the “mainstream health” world seem to clash. It is not only regarding what foods to eat, whether or not to vaccinate, but also what to do about the Sun. The “mainstream” view is to put on lots of sunscreen and you’ll be protected from sunburn and skin cancer. The “natural” view is that all this sunscreen is likely contributing to skin cancer, sun exposure is good for our health, and there are ways to protect ourselves from overdoing it.

Here are a couple of articles below from the “natural” side of the debate. In “Sunscreen Savvy” Ann Louise Gittleman discusses how the sun is an important nutrient and how to safely get your sun. You can read the article here: http://annlouise.com/2016/07/19/sunscreen-savvy/.

Another of my favorite sources of “natural” information is GreenMedInfo. Here’s a link to their feature about the benefits of sun exposure: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/therapeutic-action/sunlight-exposure.

What Not to Bring Home from Your Summer Vacation
Ever wonder why your digestion never seems just quite right? Well, as much as we don’t like to admit it we are exposed to and host all sorts of critters within our own bodies. Lots of times when your doctor can’t figure out what is wrong with you or they tell you it is in your head, it may likely be something else such as parasites, yeast/fungi/mold, viruses, or bacteria that are taking over your body and causing you a variety of symptoms.

Typical symptoms include: Allergies, anemia, asthma, bloating, chronic fatigue, constipation, Crohn’s disease, diarrhea, enlarged liver or spleen, flu-like symptoms that persist, gas, headaches, immune problems, irritable bowel, unexplained joint and muscle aches, skin problems, sleep disturbances, and teeth grinding can signal parasites, which masquerade so easily as other disorders. Some people will experience secondary gluten and/or lactose intolerance, so add food sensitivities to the list above.

I’ve had clients diagnosed with Crohn’s and a gluten sensitivity and we discovered parasites. They used anti-parasitic herbs and homeopathics to get rid of the parasites, healed their digestive tracts, no more gluten issues, and are now perfectly healthy.

July 2017 Newsletter: Some of the Latest “Nutrition” Claims in the Press

Summer is here and a Happy Fourth of July to everyone. I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend. This month has flown by as Susana and I have moved into our new residence. Nothing like a move to keep you busy! As such, I don’t have an original article this month, however, I have three interesting articles I want to share.

I’m sure many of you either saw or had a friend or relative question your devotion to coconut oil as a health food as the American Heart Association came out this past month with a hit piece. Or the British Medical Journal saying that unless you are celiac you shouldn’t avoid gluten or you won’t get enough whole grains in your diet. Or what will happen now that California has declared glyphosate is linked to cancer. See below for more details.

RXBARS are here! I am not carrying RXBARS in the office. I sell them by cases of 12. They are $24 plus tax. You can mix flavors to create your own case. If you are interested, please let me know.

Reminder – the next Open House is scheduled for July 20 at 7:00 PM. The topic is digestion: signs of poor digestion, how digestion is supposed to work, how digestion can be compromised, and what to do about it. It should be another interesting session.

Coconut Oil is Healthy
Coconut oil is not healthy and never has been healthy, or so says the USA Today as a mouthpiece for the American Heart Association. Of course we know better, but just for kicks, here’s what they said:

Gluten is Not Healthy
The prestigious British Medical Journal reports that only people with celiac need to worry about consuming gluten. For everyone else, it’s all in our imagination. Plus, if we don’t eat gluten, we won’t get all the whole grains that are supposedly so healthy for us. We know that to our body these whole grains are carbohydrate and that means they are sugar, and too much sugar leads to inflammation and subsequently heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other diseases. However, the authors of the study concluded, “The avoidance of gluten may result in reduced consumption of beneficial whole grains, which may affect cardiovascular risk. The promotion of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be encouraged.”

Glyphosate (RoundUp) Causes Cancer
This is also from the USA Today, but tells us that California has added glyphosate, the key ingredient in RoundUp to its list of cancer causing agents. But what will they do about it? Not much – perhaps require a label!!
Here’s the story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/06/27/roundup-ingredient-cancerous-list-monsanto-california/103222928/

I hope you all enjoy these articles. As you can see we must always be aware of how things get reported in the mainstream media.

Again, have a great holiday weekend.
