Giveaway: Non-toxic deodorant!

Primal Pit Paste is a company founded by CrossFit Trainer and GSG reader Amy Cazin, who sent Kristin and me samples. It’s an all-natural deodorant she developed with the goal of finding natural and safe products that actually work. It’s easy to put on, and it works! You don’t want to put aluminum and other […]

Do worms crawl out of pork?

When I was in Europe, I told one of the cancer patients I met that, while I’m not a vegetarian, I eat animal flesh only rarely, keeping it under 5 percent of my diet, and I never, ever eat pork. I don’t want filth and parasites in my body. Or to get trichinosis, a food-borne […]

Video: Denise Gets Off Coumadin

Never have I raised the ire of more readers as when I did a video with Dr. Kirt Tyson, one of Dr. Gabriel Cousens’ 30 diabetics he treated in the documentary and wellness program Simply Raw. Dr. Tyson told me he is a clearly Type 1 diabetic, who is off insulin except on the occasion he […]

Just take a deep breath!

At the Budwig Clinic, as in many holistic cancer treatment centers all over the world I’ve studied at, there is a great deal of focus on bringing oxygen into the body. (Cancer can’t stand O2 molecules!) One thing Dr. Jenkins teaches, as the director of the clinic in Spain, is to take 30 deep breaths […]

I almost go Dumpster diving in Malaga, Spain

  I finally know what my Spanish minor in college is good for. (Okay, I didn’t actually finish it. I got to 300-level classes, couldn’t get A’s competing with classrooms full of Mormon returned missionaries who were immersed in the language for 2 years. I dropped it, for a quick-and-painless Poli Sci minor.) My trip […]

Wrecking whole foods with nasty other stuff

Matthew texted me this photo he took at Walmart, and said, “Can you tell me where to get some pork jowls?” What the devil are pork jowls and why would anyone eat them? Who makes these signs? Has anyone reading this ever eaten the fatty underbelly of the chinny-chin-chin of a little piggy? My least-favorite thing ever is […]

What happened when my root-canal teeth were pulled

Can you stand one more update related to traditional dentistry versus holistic (biological) practices? It’s the last chapter in the story I told you in August. I told you that when I had my two root-canal teeth extracted, I paid a few hundred dollars for an analysis of what bacteria were found in them. I […]

avoid pleasure, embrace pain?

At my lecture in Albany, New York, I met a 92-year old cancer patient who came with his two adult sons, all of them Quakers. The sons are GSG readers and pressed me to help their father understand how important an alkaline, raw, plant-based diet is in eliminating cancerous growths. The elderly man, who is […]

Plants can’t be franchised! Canada part 2 of 2

A question I’m asked a lot is, “My green smoothies are always different and sometimes I don’t like them. How can I make sure they always ‘turn out?’” Well, that’s the thing. We’ve standardized our tastes. Ray Kroc did it famously, with the first McDonald’s. The idea was to develop a burger and fries that […]
