Live and Dry Blood Analysis for Optimal Health

June 14th is "World Blood Type Awareness Day".  Do you know your blood type?  Have you ever thought about a possible correlation between your blood type and your state of health?  How certain foods may be beneficial while others may be detrimental to your health, depending on your blood type? The idea of getting my blood analyzed to find out what was going on in my cells and to get professional advice on how I needed to change my diet to get my system balanced definitely appealed to me.  So I got a blood typing & analysis done by Lorraine and now know what is going on in my body and what I should do about it.  It only makes sense to deal with your [...]

Curcumin – Magic Relief for Inflammation!

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 [...]

Love Animals? Which Ones Deserve Your Love?

Of Course We Love Animals! Many of us love animals, but if you're an animal lover, exactly what does that mean? Does it mean you love only cats? Or cats & dogs? Or only horses? Do bunnies count? What about gerbils and finches? How about farm animals like cows and pigs and sheep and chickens? Do they count? Some people eat wild animals so they hunt them for their meat. Some people like hunting wild animals for the "trophy" of a stuffed head. What about all the people who like to eat meat but don't like to hunt? Do farm animals deserve your love? Selective Love These are questions most of us would rather not answer because we'd have to draw a clear line somewhere. [...]

The Vegan Society

Whether you are already a vegetarian ready to take the next step or a meat-eater questioning why you should change your diet, this site has all the information you need to make an informed decision. More and more people are turning to a vegan diet for the health benefits: increased energy, younger looking skin and eternal youth are just some of the claims from enthusiastic plant eaters. Well, eternal youth might be a bit optimistic, but there are certainly many scientifically proven benefits to vegan living when compared to the average western diet. Source: The Vegan Society
