Strengthen Your Digestive Fire & Heal Your Metabolism!

There is a big gap in the understanding of the digestive process if you’re only looking at the Western medical model of how digestion works.  There is a concept called DIGESTIVE FIRE, or as we say in Chinese Medicine “Spleen Qi“.  As you will see in this video below, the Spleen’s Qi (or “energy”) is an important factor in many aspects of healthy functioning person.

Understanding the benefits of nurturing your digestive fire can have a profound impact on your health and your family’s health, and it can last for a lifetime!  Many of our patients come in wondering why, no matter what they do, they can’t seem to lose weight like they used to.  When we start to examine their diet and their current symptoms, we find that the diets that have “worked” in the past to lose weight, may have also contributed to the slow decline of their digestive fire.  Most people are doing what they think is the right thing, but it may not be what is right for them and their constitution.

Why Are Smoothies Healthy?

Smoothies are a great way to get in a variety of healthy fruits and vegetables, increase your fiber intake, and diversify your diet.  It is also a great way to get healthy foods into our kids, as we can easily use berries and other fruits to mask the taste of vegetables that
they might not otherwise eat.

Blending fruits and vegetables is a much better idea than juicing, as the ...

THE DIRTY DOZEN AND CLEAN FIFTEEN FOOD LISTS

Pesticides and preservatives have infiltrated their way into almost all the food consumed in America and can store in the body’s fat, including the brain, for years. Industrial wastes have permeated our ground water and can enter our body simply by washing our organic veggies with tap water.

Stop Senate Bill S 510 Food “Safety” Modernization Act

(NaturalNews) Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called “the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America.” It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public’s right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison ...

Biodynamic Farming- better than organic!!!

Here is a great little intro video to BIODYNAMIC FARMING and what it means.  I believe this is the future of HOLISTIC FARMING practices and will surpass the “organic” label as far as quality and superior nutrient density.  Biodynamics is a way of farming based on the principles of Rudolf Steiner (founder of the Waldorf School philosophy).  I believe that biodynamics are now where “organic” was 25 years ago.  It ...

Infertility and genetically modified (GM) soy

“This study was just routine,’ said Russian biologist Alexi V. Surov, in what could end up as the understatement of the century.” So writes Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, and he continues, “Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction.  What he discovered may uproot ...
