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.

Smart Meal Plans for Chronic Inflammation

A great site to help you follow Dr. Seignalet's Hypotoxic Diet as per the information provided by Jacqueline Lagace's book "The End of Pain". Smart Meal plans AGAINST CHRONIC INFLAMMATION A growing body of research suggests that changes in one's diet could alleviate - and in certain cases, even bring an end to - chronic pain and allow people with chronic inflammatory diseases to lead a normal life. This diet, which targets chronic inflammation, is also known as hypotoxic diet. It also shares most aspects of the ancestral or paleolithic diet, except for the presence of grains and legumes, which are excluded from the paleolithic diet.
