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 [...]

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 [...]

Farmer’s Markets

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?  [...]

New Year’s Resolutions

We all make them! and then break them.... Rule #1: make it achievable by taking baby steps to incorporate your plan as part of your routine. Especially when it comes to goals involving your health & weight, these plans require a lifetime commitment and a conscious decision to make the required change(s). If you approach your resolution with a short-term effort as your plan, your success will be short-lived and you will find that resolution returning to greet you with every New Year.  Your heart's gotta be on board with the program because if it's not, it just won't succeed.  But don't be discouraged!  You just need to do some soul-searching to figure out what is really important to you, and listen to your gut [...]
