My former traditional dentist friend weighs in about MERCURY FILLINGS

Dear readers, it’s been a while since I posted on my research about the exciting, burgeoning field of “biological dentistry.” A couple of years ago I wrote fairly extensively about my own dental saga (thanks to the first 30 years of my life eating a LOT of sugar, and doing lots of toxic dental work […]

Robyn’s answer to a famous doctor’s anti-green-smoothie claim

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn of the Cleveland Clinic is a hero of mine. Former President Bill Clinton cites Dr. Esselstyn, a proponent of a plant-based diet as a solution to cardiac problems, as one of his inspirations to go vegetarian. As you know, President Clinton was triple-bypass survivor who gave up fried foods and hamburgers to […]

Science compared every diet. The winner? Real food!

Dr. David Katz and Dr. Stephanie Meller, at Yale University, completed a survey of the published research on diet over the past decade. The primary finding, surveying thousands of studies? “A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature, predominantly plants, is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention.” Score one for my mission.

Energy drinks, to “get through the day?”

I have been researching energy drinks—a fairly new phenomenon, but exploding in popularity, especially among young people. The Millennials and Gen Y (actually, all young people in all generations) are generally ill-educated about health and nutrition and also unmotivated by risks. 30 years from now, they’ll be saying what we are: “Ah, I wish I […]

I got a lot of mail about my newsletter on whether it’s appropriate to vilify all grains, and all gluten. Thanks for the feedback and personal experiences you shared! That original newsletter about whether we should really stop eating grains, is on my blog, HERE. Feel free to share your thoughts. A couple of the […]

The truth about fish oil and essential fatty acids.

One of my favorite, very simple solutions, for covering hard-to-find nutrition bases, is our SPROUTED FLAX. Why? Because people desperately need essential fatty acids (EFA’s), EVERY DAY, from their food. To avoid heart disease, neurological problems, and anxiety and depression. And Americans aren’t getting adequate levels of EFA’s. 80 percent of us are deficient in […]

Sugar is worse than just “empty calories” and tooth decay

An interesting study you’re not likely to ever hear about came out of my own alma mater, the University of Utah, and THIS article was published in the Tribune: Many mothers let their children eat loads of sugary food, thinking that it’s okay because their kid is thin, and they’ll make him brush his teeth […]

WHAT DOES GSG THINK ABOUT THE PALEO DIET? part 1 of 2

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Will you blog on what is wrong with the Paleo diet? We have Crossfit fanatics all around us and they are pushing it. It would be nice to have something I could print off and refer to it. I know it’s bad, but I can’t explain why. The Crossfit teachers say they have […]

Natural Infertility Treatments, part 1 of 2

As I started blogging nearly 6 years ago, one of my first topics talked about my struggle for over 5 years with infertility, in my 20’s. In fact, my oldest son arrived after five courses of artificial insemination, and I was taking hyper-ovulation drugs too. (Bad idea—it made hormonal issues worse.) So technically, my son […]
