Canada Food Guide: New & Improved

The Best Food Guide so far... I am so pleased with the new Canada Food Guide! Congratulations to all Canadians who participated in the surveys that were provided! These surveys collected the feedback used to create a much more accurate example of what healthy eating should be. It is REALLY encouraging to see that so many people are realizing the importance of increasing their plant-based diets! No mention of Organic & Non-GMO plants in Canada Food Guide Now, we need the government to take steps to improve the quality of those plants. Only pesticide-free, organic plants are truly healthy to eat. In other words, GMO plants (plants genetically implanted with genes that make them resistant to herbicides & pesticides) AND the use of these poisons on [...]

The Truth About Cancer – Part 3

"Cancer-Killing Viruses, Cancer Stem Cells, GMO's, Juicing & Eating the Rainbow" To re-iterate the message from the previous 2 episodes, Chemotherapy & standard therapies have no effect on cancer stem cells, rather, the cancer just metastasizes and regrows stronger and more resistant against standard treatments. many natural products available from Mother Nature contain anti-cancer compounds that target cancer stem cells Turmeric Resveratrol Green Tea Catechins Berberin controls insulin Flavonols turn off inflammation & initiate apoptosis (the process where cancer cells commit suicide) they ONLY kill cancer cells while making our healthy cells stonger stop inflammation and you stop cancer Wheat Grass (4-8oz/day) Raw Vegetable/Fruit juicing: people have actually expelled tumours from their bodies after a 5 day juice fast: the juice starts working in your [...]

Canada’s Food Guide

Phase 2 of Health Canada's project to update the Canada Food Guide has begun.  Did you even know there was a Phase 1 last fall?  I remember filling that one out and only know about this one because of a health-related newsletter I get in my inbox.  Only 20,000 Canadians participated in the last survey.  How many people live in Canada?  No doubt the lack of participation is the same thing that plagues any issue that requires voting (like government elections) and that's apathy; an unfortunate side-effect of democracy.  But I suspect another reason for lack of input from Canadians here is simply lack of communication.  I don't think most people were even aware that this is taking place.  Important projects like this that can [...]

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 [...]

The Truth About Cancer – Part 2

"Cancer Facts & Fictions, Breast Cancer, Hormones, Skin Cancer & Essential Oils" Here are my notes from watching this episode: 70% of the immune system is in the digestive tract Cancer cells never die: they multiply & invade our organs.  This is called metastasis which is the spreading of cancer due to compromised immune systems. 18% of cancer is caused by infection cancer is NOT genetic.  You need to deal with "epigenetics" (the software controls the hardware) we can change our gene expression by what we eat mammograms cause breast cancer by exposing the breast to radiation over 1.3 million women were over-diagnosed with breast cancer from mammograms Thermography is a great option for breast-cancer detection without the health risks of mammograms for more info [...]

The Truth About Cancer – Part 1

I started watching this 9 part series by Ty Bollinger and found it to be incredibly informative about the whole cancer business.  Back in 1998, a friend of mine expressed her opinion that the government really didn't want to find a cure for cancer.  I thought that was insane!  What do you mean they don't want to find a cure for this terrible disease that is devastating so many lives?  It made no sense that all the money going into research every year was not dedicated to finding some miracle cure.  How naive I was...  But my friend's statement had planted a seed in the back of my mind that got me thinking, questioning and learning about cancer, illnesses in general and the body's amazing [...]

Health Care or Disease Management?

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

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!

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. [...]
