Health Care or Disease Management?

By |2019-02-14T11:03:25-08:00June 2nd, 2017|Diseases, Education, Food, Health Care Services, June, Miscellaneous, Politics|0 Comments

Join the Food Revolution! To reiterate what John Robbins & Ocean Robbins already stated on "The Food Revolution Network" website, our society now revolves around disease management, not Health Care.  But we can change that! There's a steady shift that is slowly but surely taking place in our world today. All you have to do is take over the driver's seat of your two-legged vehicle! On your own, you can maintain or reclaim your health which will provide you with quality of life. And collectively, choosing healthy foods over drugs will create the changes that need to take place on a global scale. We can create our own health care!  Don't be discouraged because you have NOTHING to lose except your health! Who do You [...]

Plant-Based Doctors: Modern Medicine

By |2019-02-14T15:34:04-08:00April 19th, 2017|Food, Health Care Services, Nutritionists, Planetary Health|0 Comments

Love Your Heart! Your beating heart is the difference between being alive on this planet or becoming dust in the wind! If you have a healthy beating heart, then you likely also have a functioning brain. Don't waste it! Old-school beliefs were to trust your Family Doctor with your life. Well, times have changed because we now have Plant-Based Doctors! The technological advances of the past century were mind-boggling. And a lot of it was not necessarily good. The invention of chemical drugs was seen as a miracle cure for so many sick people. The focus of Doctor's training became all about drugs. And now, look at our world... Are we any healthier? Our Guts Love Plants Close studies of the human intestinal system show [...]

Eating Contests: Your Body is Your Temple!

By |2019-02-14T18:37:11-08:00April 5th, 2017|Food, Miscellaneous|0 Comments

Avoid Eating Contests! Every year, people die during eating contests. Whether it's from eating too many hot dogs or drinking too much water, people DIE! Find out more about Eating Contest Dangers. Clearly, all those involved think that our bodies are nothing more than trash cans with 2 legs. The human body, as resilient as it is (and usually taken for granted) is still a working machine. It needs proper care for proper functioning.  Force-feeding yourself at breakneck speed is only asking for trouble. Would you treat your vehicle that way by overfilling it with gas, antifreeze & oils? People treat their vehicles better than their own bodies! Fast Foods are like a Placebo The convenience of fast food has replaced the Nutrients in whole foods. [...]

Earth Month

By |2017-04-05T17:37:14-07:00April 5th, 2017|April, Miscellaneous, Monthly Info., Planetary Health|0 Comments

April is "Earth Month"! April 20 - 26 is Earth Week & April 22nd is Earth Day! And for those of us living in colder, northern regions of the planet, April is the first full month of spring.  The snow has melted (or is melting), bulbs are sprouting out of the ground and blooming, buds are showing up on shrubs and trees.  It's a time of rebirth filled with hope and anticipation after a long cold winter. But we cannot take these things for granted anymore.  Modern civilisation, growing populations, industry & waste have all taken their toll on our planet, which is why we dedicate this month to pay special recognition to the planet that sustains us.  So, during this month, every year, think [...]

Farmer’s Markets

By |2017-04-05T22:16:47-07:00March 31st, 2017|Markets, Okanagan, BC|0 Comments

Considering the poor quality of food available to us at grocery stores nowadays, it's all the more reason to shop at farmer's markets and buy local produce that hasn't had to travel thousands of miles to get here.  And unless you choose "Certified Organic" products, there's just no telling if a GMO seed was used to grow that crop, what type of soil a food was grown in, what type of fertilizer was applied to maximize growth, what pesticides were applied to the crop etc...  Not to mention if ethical labour practices were used to cultivate said crop.  So many things to consider that affect the nutritional value of the living foods we eat!  Are your food choices nourishing your body or making you sick?  [...]

Curcumin – Magic Relief for Inflammation!

By |2019-02-15T14:14:41-08:00March 22nd, 2017|Animal Welfare, March, Miscellaneous, Monthly Info., Supplements|0 Comments

Smokey - My Elderly Bunny My 13 year-old bunny Smokey started exhibiting signs of arthritis in the summer of 2015.  By the winter of 2016, the local vet prescribed "Apo-Meloxicam", an anti-inflammatory drug generally given to cats and dogs. Unfortunately, drug companies would rather use rabbits as guinea pigs to experiment on rather than creating drugs to ease their pain. That department is reserved for more common pets like cats, dogs & horses. I was told this drug might help but it had possible negative/deadly side effects (as is the case with all drugs for animals or people). After giving him this medication for several months, I could see no improvement in his condition. But I knew about curcumin as a natural, vegetarian, anti-inflammatory remedy that [...]

Low-Carb Diet – Conclusion

By |2017-04-04T00:45:18-07:00March 22nd, 2017|Miscellaneous, Skin Care|0 Comments

After about 3 months on a low-carb diet, I stopped seeing posititve results on my derriere.  In other words, it wasn't diminishing anymore.  I lost some fat from that area but then I just reached a plateau where no more progress was being made.  That was disappointing so I stopped following this diet as strictly as I had been.  I did, however, lose any fat I had on the rest of my body!  So if you're not particular about where the fat disappears from, this diet will not fail to get rid of some fat. And I did learn a few things!  This diet was probably one of the healthiest things I have ever done for my body.  It made me realize how much of [...]
