Panera is Cutting Food Additives…Finally!

PaneraPanera Bread has announced that they will be eliminating some of the chemical additives in their food. Additives?

Today, the company publicly published a “No No List” of artificial additives including colors, flavors, preservatives, and sweeteners that are banned from its restaurants as of today in the US (its rollout date in Canada has yet to be determined). The restaurant says it will remove more than 150 ingredients, including aspartame (taken out of Diet Pepsi last month) and azodicarbonamide (aka, the much-maligned yoga mat chemical), as well as old health foes like high-fructose corn syrup and lard. (Also on the list: sucralose, the artificial sweetener replacing aspartame in Diet Pepsi and acesulfame K, the beverage’s other sweetener.)

Check out this article about Panera’s announcement about taking another step toward ethical meat practices in Forbes Magazine.

 Subway Restaurant

Remember the yoga mat incident?  Well it looks like Subway has made another step toward helping their PR and announced  plans for a significant reduction in sodium at its U.S. stores that could ultimately nudge much of the fast-food industry to follow.

Beginning today, sodium content in Subway’s “Fresh Fit” sandwich line in the U.S. will be cut 28% vs. 2009, when Subway first began to cut salt. And sodium in its overall sandwich line will be cut by 15%, compared with the same period.

Kraft Foods

Kraft Foods, a few weeks ago, declared that they will be eliminating the food dye they were using Maccheesein their Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, the stuff that makes it orange, and replacing it with natural ingredients.

Maybe Kraft is making this move because it’s losing market share to organic products — although the company still sells half-a-billion dollars worth of the stuff annually.

As it turns out, the famous nuclear-orange color of Kraft’s mac and cheese can be obtained from natural ingredients like turmeric, annatto,and paprika — instead of artificial food dye.

But the BIGGEST news was….ta dah! CHIPOTLE GIVES UP GMOS!  The public has spoken. Take that Monsanto who has no problem morally or ethically poisoning the consumer if it can make a profit.

WHAT IS A GMO? (Genetically Modified Organism)GMO

A GMO is created by inserting genes from one species (typically bacteria or a virus) into the DNA of another. This can result in a plant with characteristics that wouldn’t occur naturally, such as producing pesticides or the ability to withstand high doses of chemical herbicides.

Not all GMOs are designed in the same way. Crops can be engineered to do a number of different things. The traits that cause the most concern to agricultural, environmental, and medical experts are:

1. Herbicide Resistance: Plants engineered to survive applications of glyphosate, a chemical that would otherwise kill them.

2. Pesticide Production: Plants engineered to produce insecticidal toxins

(Picture source: Chipotle website)

If you eat processed food, you are more likely to consume GMOs.

Why are GMOs bad for me?

Why You Should Be Concerned About GMOs

Contributed by

Genetically modified organisms () have been grabbing headlines in recent weeks, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture () suddenly reversing bans on one genetically engineered crop after another. The list of genetically modified food ingredients is growing at an alarming rate. And what’s even more disturbing is the fact the USDA seems to have sided with big business in allowing GMO foods to be sold without any labeling whatsoever.

Consumers have been left largely in the dark, unable to make informed choices about buying Panera2foods containing GMOs. By some estimates, over 75% of all processed foods sold in the U.S. contain a GMO ingredient. Corn, soy, canola, cottonseed, sugar, beef and dairy products are among the most likely to have been genetically modified.

Scientists, environmental activists, supporters of organic farming and consumers alike are joining forces to protest the USDA’s decisions. Organizations like the Organic Consumers Association, Alliance for Natural Health USA and Say No to GMOs! are just a few examples of those working to fight back against GMOs.

What’s behind all of the outrage and fervor? Here’s a brief overview of the case against GMOs. It’s important to educate yourself now, because the onslaught of approved GMO foods entering our food supply is likely to continue, as the government refuses to acknowledge that they could be harmful.

Why do GMOs exist?

If you listen to the government and the Big Agra companies it supports, GMO foods are perfectly safe, and their benefits include lower cost crops, more productive farms and even healthier foods. But the truth is, genetically engineered plants exist for a single reason — profits. Companies like Monsanto have been known to bully farmers into paying “technology fees” to use their GMO seeds.

In most cases, the reason that seeds are genetically modified is so they plants can withstand massive doses of herbicides and pesticides. And guess who sells these toxic chemicals? The same companies that make the GMO seeds.

 

Why should you be concerned about GMOs in our food supply?

Genetically engineered plants have had either genes from bacteria or viruses, or genes that make plants resistant to toxic chemicals like the herbicide Roundup — spliced into their DNA. These genes were never part of the human diet until the first GMO plant was created in 1996.

To date, there have been no long-term human safety studies conducted on GMOs. To assume that they are safe defies common sense, as we lack any scientific evidence to prove that they do not pose a threat to human health. In fact, more research points towards potentially harmful effects of consuming GMOs.

The American Academy of Environmetal Medicine (AAEM)’s official position on GMOs is that they “have not been properly tested and pose a serious health risk” and that a more research shows that GMOs are posing a harmful effect to humans.

The Center for Food Safety has launched a free mobile application for smartphones called the True Food Shoppers Guide, a program that allows shoppers to quickly and easily identify grocery items that contain genetically engineered ingredients.

Here is an list of great apps you can help you eat GMO FREE!

So now that the gauntlet has been thrown down by Chipotle maybe more food companies will start following their example. We can only hope.

How to Make Your Legs Look Awesome in Shorts!

Here’s how to get your legs ready for shorts and summer season.l

Okay, so have been hiding your legs under pants all winter but now is the time to get them ready to be seen in shorts. I have some little tips that the Victoria Secret models use and if it is good enough for them, then it is good enough for you. (My 83 year-old mother does this. Keep on reading.)

Click Here

First of all, shave (best to do this in the shower) with a good razor
and use Skintimate Raspberry Moisturizing shaving cream.

Next use a sea salt scrub and do your entire legs. This will remove any dry skin and make your legs super smooth. Here are some to try:

She needs this!

She needs this!

Alba Botanica Hawaiian, Sea Salt Body Scrub, 14.5 Ounce
Dead Sea Salt Body Scrub – Deep Hydration and Exfoliation That Lasts All Day – Exfoliates Top Layer of Dead Skin and Cleanses Deeply – with Pure Dead Sea Salt and Moisturizing Oil – Full Body Exfoliation Reveals a Moisturized New Layer of Younger Looking Skin – Dead Sea Salts Infuse Skin With Minerals and Moisture – Satisfaction Guaranteed
St. Ives Body Wash Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating Body Wash, 24 Ounce (Pack of 2)

After you rinse the salt scrub off, your next step is to take a loofah (these work pretty good) and wash your legs with 41ih2j2EmZL._SL75_. Tone Body Wash, Tahitian Vanilla and Orchid, 18 Ounce. Rinse and dry off.

Now your legs will be ready for Body Butter by Victoria Secret.51VQTevEgIL._SL75_ It is very moisturizing but also light.

After this, apply Sally Hansen Airbrush Tan all over your legs evenly, and
you do this by spraying a couple of circles at a time then using your hands and rub evenly. Keep on doing until your legs are completely covered and glowing. Great for covering bruises and blemishes.

Now for some shine. Victoria Secret has a great product to add to some shimmer and shine to your legs called Rockin’ Body Leg Shine.41bVOn2FhCL._SL75_Victoria’s Secret Rockin’ Body LEG SHINE Supermodel approved 2.5 oz.

There you go! Now you have some rockin’ looking legs. Works on short legs, long legs, chubby legs and skinny legs. Now you have no reason to go out with pasty, dry legs.

If you prefer, you can make your own sea salt scrub by mixing olive oil and a little Himalayan sea salt. Warning: your tub will become very slippery from the olive oil. Clean the tub after with Comet to de-oil so the next person to use the tub/shower doesn’t slip.

If you want to use a great natural moisturizer, try using coconut oil. Or if you have really dry skin, a long lasting gel like Baby Oil Gel works great at sealing in moisture after your shower, and is non-oily.

Below are a few suggestions that you can click on and shop via Amazon.

Thanks for reading!

Where Do People Live The Longest?

old-people-kissing-12-6-10Where do people live the longest? If you watched the CNN report on Sunday, March 15, 2015, you would have seen the show called The Blue Zones. It was based on the book with the same name by author Dan Buettner.

“People in the Blue Zones reach age 100 at 10 times the average rate. What’s their secret?”

  Not surprisingly the common thread was about centenarians who live on remote islands, never saw a McDonalds, and eat only home-grown veggies. One interesting fact was that eating meat was reserved only for special occasions.  And also having less stress is a big common denominator, but we all already know that, and unless we are ready to sell everything and move to a remote island that would be almost impossible. But guess what? One of the areas with the most people living to 100 is not only on a remote island in the South Pacific but right here in America. There is hope for us all. Where is it? Loma Linda, California. What do they do that is different from the rest of the country? They are Seventh Day Adventists who eat a vegetarian diet. Plus, they have a strong church community and therefore a tight group of family and friends which is also a key point in life longevity. Here are the 9 key characteristics: Power 9 principles from The Blue Zones:

    • Move Naturally The world’s longest-lived people don’t pump iron or run marathons. Instead, their environments nudge them into moving without thinking about it.
  • Purpose Why do you wake up in the morning? Knowing your sense of purpose is worth up to seven years of extra life expectancy.
  • Down Shift Stress leads to chronic inflammation, associated with every major age-related disease. The world’s longest-lived people have routines to shed that stress.
  • 80% Rule “Hara hachi bu” – the Okinawans say this mantra before meals as a reminder to stop eating when their stomachs are 80 percent full.
  • Plant Slant The cornerstone of most centenarian diets? Beans. They typically eat meat—mostly pork—only five times per month.
  • Wine @ 5 Moderate drinkers outlive non-drinkers, especially if they share those drinks with friends.
  • Belong Attending faith-based services four times per month – no matter the denomination – adds up to 14 years of life expectancy.
  • Loved Ones First Centenarians put their families first. They keep aging parents and grandparents nearby, commit to a life partner and invest in their children.
  • Right Tribe They world’s longest lived people chose or were born into social circles that support healthy behaviors.

Thank you for reading. To your health!

How to Cure Diabetes


In an era where every symptom becomes a deficiency of the latest drug, it makes the word “cure” sound as though it borders on quackery. But nothing could be further from the truth. For example, the leading diabetes prescription medications have quadrupled the heart attack rate, increased bladder cancers and depleted vitamin B12 which leads to exhaustion, impotence, Alzheimer’s, and much more. In fact the leading diabetes medication according to the Journal of the American Medical Association 2010 doubles the heart attack rate. Furthermore, lowering the main test that doctors use to monitor diabetes (the hemoglobin A1C) with a diabetes drug increases death 22%. As well, diabetes drugs set folks up for blindness from retinopathy, renal failure in 37% which requires dialysis which then leads to heavy metal toxicity, a 33-70 % increase in cancer, 50% get memory loss, and much more. Even a study in the 2008 New England Journal of Medicine showed that you can give all the best medications to diabetics for 5 years making their blood tests look normal, but it does not change their rate of dying one iota. One in four Americans over 60 has diabetes and three times that number are pre-diabetic with hypertension, elevated cholesterol or triglycerides, obesity, NASH (not alcoholic steatohepatitis or fatty liver disease), and/or Metabolic Syndrome X (insulin resistance). Diabetes is clearly our best example of accelerated aging. And as far as the multiple curable causes of diabetes go, the #1 cause permeates 80% of our diet. Yet the FDA limit on this #1 cause is 500 times higher than the dose that researchers use to create diabetes. The good news is sometimes as little as pennies of non-prescription nutrients can literally cure diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease), prevent amputations, reverse diabetic retinopathy, as well as reverse diabetes to the point of needing no medications. Come and learn how to empower yourself (contains well over 1000 references).

Protect Yourself From Lyme Disease

depressedwomanWhat is Lyme disease? Lyme disease is an infection caused by a spirochete that humans can get from the bite of an infected deer tick. The spirochete’s scientific name is Borrelia burgdorferi.

It was first discovered in Lyme, Connecticut a quaint little town with a population of around 2k. In the early 1970s a group of children and adults in Lyme, Connecticut, and the surrounding areas were suffering from some puzzling and debilitating health issues. Their symptoms included swollen knees, paralysis, skin rashes, headaches, and severe chronic fatigue. Visits with doctors and hospital stays had become all too common.

Physicians began to study the group’s symptoms and looked for several possible causes. What was causing all these debilitating symptoms? What added to the mystery were the reported skin rashes followed very quickly by arthritic conditions. Most of the people recalled being bitten by a tick in the region. Residents of Lyme began calling it Lyme disease, but they still didn’t know what caused it.

In 1981, a scientist, Willy Burgdorfer,  who was studying Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (also caused by a tick bite) began to study Lyme disease. He found the connection between the deer tick and the disease and gave the bacteria causing the illness a name, Borrelia burgdorferi. Therefore, antibiotic treatment could be used to “eradicate” the disease.

This treatment is currently accepted by the medical profession and has been largely successful, especially for those with early-stage Lyme disease. However, there continues to be heavy debate on the long-term use of antibiotics for Lyme that has progressed or appears resistant to a short course of antibiotics.

In 2012, Lyme disease was included as one of the top ten notifiable diseases by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

DeerTickFemale800

Lyme disease is one of the fastest-growing  infections in the United States. The CDC estimates that there are 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year here in the US. While it was primarily an East Coast phenomenon in the beginning, it has since been reported in all states except Hawaii. (Note: I now live in Sarasota, FL and my veterinarian has told me we do not have Lyme disease in Sarasota, YET. This was after I ran to the veterinarian’s after finding a small tick on my dog.)

I recall when the first time I saw a person with Lyme Disease (20 years ago). I was living in Upstate NY and had met her through some friends. She was obviously physically ill, could hardly walk, and just returned from Mexico were she had undergone an experimental  treatment for Lyme disease. It was sad to see, shocking really, and she was exhausted and went home as the rest of us escorted her husband to dinner. I wonder if she is still alive as that was the only time I ever saw her, and her condition was terrible.

As the years went on, I would hear of more and more friends and acquaintances having brushes with Lyme disease. Stories of picking nasty ticks off of body parts after hikes in the woods, a dentist hooked up to an IV of antibiotics as he continued to work on patient’s teeth, or a business man who could no longer run his business because of the disease, continued to send terror into our community.

Now it is 2015, and people are afraid to walk in the woods, garden in their yards, or let their kids play soccer in fear they will pick up a deer tick. And pets are not immune. My friend’s dogs have had Lyme disease, however there is now a vaccination for dogs but not available for humans.

Plum Island

Plum Island

Why were we able to play outside as children and never worried about being infected with Lyme disease? Is it the result of a scientific experiment gone haywire? According to the website http://nstarzone.com/LYME.html it was the US government that created Lyme disease. Their conspiracy theory is that a scientist was experimenting by infecting ticks with a deadly disease as part of biological warfare on Plum Island outside of Long Island and only 10 miles from Lyme, Connecticut. Hmmmm

The History of Plum Island CLICK HERE

Some scientists say that Lyme disease has been around for years and it is just taking this long to spread to your particular area. A German physician, Alfred Buchwald, first described the chronic skin rash, or erythema migrans, of what is now known to be Lyme disease more than 130 years ago.

Here are some precautions to take to prevent YOU from being infected with Lyme disease:

  1. Wear white clothing so you can see the ticks and tuck pants into socks when you go for hikes.
  2. Stay on sidewalks and roads. Ticks like grassy areas.
  3. Stand in front of a mirror and examine yourself front and back after being outside doing lawn care or gardening. etc.
  4. Consider DEET for skin and PERMETHRIN for your clothes. A single application of permethrin to your clothing can provide up to six weeks of protection, even after repeated washings.  LEMON EUCALYPTUS OIL is believed to repel ticks and several all-natural organic sprays now exist on the market.
  5. Check your dogs and cats for ticks when they come into the house.
  6. You can try making your own tick repellant: (I’m not sure how well it works.)

How to remove a tick:

  1. Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible.tick-hostcycle
  2. Pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don’t twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal.
  3. After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap and water.
  4. Dispose of a live tick by submersing it in alcohol, placing it in a sealed bag/container, wrapping it tightly in tape, or flushing it down the toilet. Never crush a tick with your fingers.

Symptoms of Lyme disease:

  1. A flu-like feeling
  2. Joint aches and pains
  3. Rash around the site of the tick bite
  4. Fever
  5. Sore throat
  6. A constant headache
  7. Depression
  8. Exhaustion

 Most people that develop Lyme disease never develop the classic bulls-eyed rash.

Most people with Lyme disease never test positive for Lyme in early blood test.

A small percentage of people are NOT CURED with antibiotics.

It is important to get treatment as soon as possible if you suspect your were bitten by a deer tick. If Lyme disease is not diagnosed and treated early, the Lyme spirochetes can spread and may go into hiding in your body. Weeks, months or even years later you may have problems with your brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, heart and circulation, digestion, reproductive system, and skin. Symptoms may disappear even without treatment and different symptoms may appear at different times.

The most common assist-physically-disabled-person-800x800antibiotics prescribed for Lyme Disease is amoxicillin, doxycycline, tetracycline and penicillin. The length of antibiotic treatment varies according to how bad the disease and your symptoms are, but treatment generally lasts less than 4 weeks.

 

 

What happens if you do not get better with treatment?

Chronic Lyme disease happens when a person does not seek treatment in time or does not adequately respond to standard antibiotic treatment. Usually your doctor will prescribe more antibiotics or a course of IV antibiotics. Each patient’s case is different.

In the case with the woman I met 20 years ago, she was not responding well with conventional therapy and chose an alternative medical treatment in Mexico. You can Google alternative treatment centers for more info but make sure you do your research before spending your money.

Spring is coming and that means the ticks will come out of hiding. Be careful when you are outside and stay tick-free!

10 Ways to Moisturize Winter Skin

Nothing dries out your skin like cold weather, but here are a few things you can do. One is to turn down the thermostat because heat, whether is it electric, hot air, steam, or hot-water heat… will dry your skin. Does it feel like you are pouring on gallons of skin cream and you can still see cracks in your skin? You are not alone and below are a few suggestions. attachment

Baths are a great way to chase the cold away, but a long, hot bath will make dry skin worse. It is better to take a warm, quick shower, and use a mild soap like Dove.

Here are 10 things you can do to keep your skin from dying out:

  1. Applying coconut oil a few times during the day on your legs, hands and face.
  2. Before you dry off after your shower liberally apply Johnson and Johnson Baby Oil Gel and then dry off. The gel lasts a lot longer on your skin and applying it before your dry off locks in moisture.
  3. Use O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Foot Cream (Daily Foot Cream For a Life of Healthy Feet) on your 20141103_102436feet liberally and then put on a pair of cotton socks before your go to bed.
  4. Use pure Vitamin E Oil on your elbows.
  5. A great moisturizing face mask is honey and egg yokes mixed together with a couple of drops of Vitamin E. Cover your face with the mixture and wash off after 10 minutes.
  6. Really dry skin on your legs? Try Crisco! Then put on your winter underwear.
  7. Use logo-productO’Keeffe’s Hand Cream for dry hands. I recommend keeping it by the kitchen sink and using it a few times during the day.
  8. Olive Oil is a great and healthy way to moisturize dry skin.
  9.

Is There an Easy Way to Cleanse Completely? What is it Possible to Heal? Press the Reset Button and Help Your Body Shed
the Toxins and Weight that are Making You Sick.
Get Your Energy and Your Life Back

From: David Rainoshek

Dear Friend,

Over the next few minutes I’m going to introduce you to a revolutionary and rapidly growing Life Practice that I developed over ten years ago with my colleague John Rose (who saved my life) to rapidly heal your body and transform your life.

What You are About to Encounter is an Idea Whose Time Has Come. Juice Feasting, as you are about to learn, is Healling Through Incredible Abundance.

More info button

. . . and if you read this short letter entirely you’re going to know how you can protect yourself and your family from the unnecessary suffering and trauma that 70% of people in the United States today are facing due to causes that YOU can prevent.

The information below will not only help you understand Juice Feasting and its dramatic ability to reduce and eradicate most western health challenges, but will also introduce you to a rock solid method to transform your whole life…

No matter what diet you’ve been eating…

What is the Cleansing Sweet Spot?

. . . You hear the word “cleansing” thrown around a lot in natural health circles, but few people actually understand how cleansing really works and what is truly possible. That’s why many of us do not heal. I tried using my juicer to juice fast, did the Master Cleanser for 12 days, and even tried water fasting. But those cleanses are too extreme, too weak or too short for most people who need to address chronic health concerns.

There was something simple, yet profound that I was missing. I had not yet hit the deep sweet spot of cleansing and healing that I am going to share with you here.

You’ll be shocked – as I was – at how simple it is to relieve yourself of innumerable and preventable health challenges once you know how to put yourself in the biggest cleansing “sweet spot” ever discovered

These preventable, healable health challenges rob you of your potential for a full life of passion and creativity. They affect how you feel, how you treat those you love, and sap you of the vital energy you could be using to live your unique self purpose.

Before I discovered what to do, I thought my life was over. I was taking six different medications every day before the age of 27.

But I kept plugging away… I knew I would find something that would heal me, and that it would involve food and cleansing (not drugs and medication). What I did not know is that what would save me would change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in just a few short years.

My constant pain and sickness had purpose: it led me to discovering The Cleansing “Sweet-Spot” we call Juice Feasting: a bullet-proof solution to a growing laundry list of preventable health challenges that we badly need to heal NOW.

And I do mean NOW. 70% of the U.S. population is now overweight or obese, and 70% of Americans are on pharmaceutical drugs. Over half the westernized world is clinically pre-diabetic. Our biggest killers are heart disease and cancer – diseases we now know have causes that can be minimized and eradicated.

Why Are We Sick?
And Why is it So Hard to Get Well?

Alfred E. Newman said, “We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” And Astrid Alauda said, “Did you ever stop to taste a carrot? Not just eat it, but taste it? You can’t taste the beauty and energy of the earth in a Twinkie.”

In Westernized societies the disturbing Truth is that our food is lacking in Goodness – both in nutritional content and meal size – and our eating such food is resulting in the fading of Beauty.

A July 2008 Johns Hopkins University study published in Obesity projects that by 2030, 86% of Americans will be overweight or obese, and a shocking 24% of U.S. children will be overweight or obese by 2015.

Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years, and 1 out of 3 children born today will develop diabetes in their lifetime.

Toxic Waste Matter Builds Up in Your Intestines, Making You Sick

Below are pictures of the Uneliminated Waste Matter in the intestinal tract and colon of almost everyone in the western world. It forms over decades of eating – and even if you have adopted a healthier diet and lifestyle in the past few years, it is very likely you have some of this in you. Such un-eliminated waste in your body is damaging to your health, to say the least.

The average person has between 5 and 30 pounds of this un-eliminated waste matter in their intestines, blocking digestion and secreting toxins into the body. Oftentimes it is so impacted it is shaped like the intestines.

Do you know where you absorb 90% of your nutrition? Through the small intestine. But if it’s clogged with the stuff you see above, you don’t get the nutrients from your food. That leaves your body feeling hungry, it it places more orders for nutrients that it is not getting, causing you to feel like eating even more food.

It also means that you are not absorbing the nutrition from all those expensive supplements and super foods you have been eating, which is like flushing miracle foods and your money down the drain, literally.

But that is not all…

You create more brain-balancing neurochemicals in your gut than in your brain. And if this waste matter is in your gut, it imbalances your brain chemistry, creating foggy thinking, depression, anxiety, lack of creativity, poor sleep…

Juice Feasting is designed from the ground up to get the junk out. Your body will be given the tools, the energy, and the permission needed to let go of all that yuck in a SHORT period of time.

The results? A happier brain and a body that is FAR more well nourished than before… and that is just for starters, as you will see.

Juice Feasting is also designed to address toxicity that is not visible to the naked eye…

65,000: The Number of Human-Created Toxins Assaulting our Immune Systems…

Every year over 13 million people across the globe are diagnosed with cancer and 7.6 million people die because of cancer. This is about 13% of all global deaths. The U.S. ranks in the top three countries with the highest rate of cancer in both men and women. This is not an accident.


The sources of Toxicity are all around us. We’ll show you how to get the lead (and more) out…

70,000 chemicals, according to the E.P.A., are used commercially. 65,000 of those 70,000 are potentially hazardous to our health. According to the Environmental Defense Group, more than 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment each year, of which 72 million pounds are known carcinogens.

These cancer-causing agents end up in our air, our water, and our food.

In other words, we are surrounded by carcinogens, and we have to use what we as human beings have used all along for survival: a certain amount of cleverness and thoughtfulness in our lives to counteract the lack of consciousness that the corporations and ourselves are living with.

Different tests on the blood and urine of adult Americans have found a total of 167 compounds, with an average of 91 compounds in each person. Of these 167 compounds, 76 are known to cause cancer, and 94 are toxic to the nervous system, 82 effect the lungs, 86 effect hormones, and 79 cause birth defects.

In unborn babies, the Environmental Working Group has found a total of 287 chemicals in the baby’s blood; 180 are known to cause cancer, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects in animals. Our future generations are explicitly at risk.

Wouldn’t it be nice to find a simple, natural remedy that can act as a practical antidote for this situation? I think so, too, and that is why we are here.

The Health Effects of Toxicty are Devastating…

Disease has weight to it. Mortality rates among the overweight and obese are telling: A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that being overweight increases the risk of death by 20 to 40 percent, and by two to three times in cases of obesity.

Obesity carries with it a multitude of increased risk factors : heart disease, depression, acid reflux, diabetes, dementia, arthritis, cancer, stroke, kidney disease, sexual dysfunction, and sleep disorders.

With modern research data and its digital dissemination for all to read, the general debate is over on this one: Overweight is associated with numerous diseases, shortens life, and creates direct and associated economic costs:

The U.S. will spend over $3.5 TRILLION dollars on health care this year, much of which could be prevented.

I know it, you know it, and it is why we have created Juice Feasting: to answer the immense call and need for healing in the western world in a way that is accessible to EVERYONE.

We’ve Been Lied To: Modern Medicine Doesn’t Remove The Actual Causes of Disease


Modern Medicine is an Expensive Band-Aid Approach.

The reason why it’s so hard to heal our health challenges is because there are so many, and the modern medical approach is to ignore the underlying causes and treat specific symptoms with drugs.

Remember, most of our ill health arises from very similar underlying causes: stagnation, toxemia (drugs, food additives, agro and industrial chemicals, uneliminated waste matter in our bodies), and deficiency.

Take arthritis for example.

Chronic joint pain is incredibly common in the western world, yet most of it is caused by poor hydration, a lack of alkaline minerals in the body, and inflammatory dietary agents such as wheat, dairy, processed sugar, and GMOs.

Or consider acid reflux disease, (which I had). This preventable condition is the reason over the counter antacids are a perennial top-seller for Big Pharma.

This multi-billion dollar cash cow can be healed in as little as 7 Days of Juice Feasting by rebuilding the alkaline lining of the stomach and rehydrating the body. Stomach Acid is good for you… and this serves to increase stomach acid production.

…I know when you read the following you may be skeptical and say “Acid reflux is too much acid.” That’s what Big Pharma would like you to think.

Actually, reflux is caused by a weakened stomach lining that is deficient in organic sodium (such as in celery – the center of juices on any Juice Feast). The weak stomach lining reacts to the presence of strong stomach acid.

The key is not to diminish your natural production of strong stomach acid but to rebuild the alkaline stomach lining.

The healing experienced from Juice Feasting on a myriad of western health challenges – such as those seen below – is just as dramatic. And it’s easy to see why once you understand how Juice Feasting is designed to remove the underlying causes of most major diseases to rebuild the body’s physiology, biochemistry, and immune system from bottom to top.

If You Have These Symptoms, It’s Likely That Toxemia is Causing Your Declining Health

Symptoms are Signs That You Are Marching Through the 7 Stages of Disease…

There are Seven Stages of Disease – which you will learn about in the Juice Feasting Program. As more studies are done on the underlying causes of these Seven Stages of disease, it is being understood that stagnation, toxemia and deficiency contribute to most of our illnesses, including far more than just those listed below.

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Clinical Depression
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
