this is what it looks like when I’m sick

True confession: I got sick on Tuesday. I did yoga and worked out with my tennis team from 8-11 after waking up feeling a little weird and weak. I went home and took colloidal silver, with some powdered Vitamin C mixed in, every few hours. I texted my massage therapist Kortni (completely amazing, 801-222-0212), who […]

How often do you get sick? Should I buy hand sanitizer?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I was wondering, while eating the great raw food diet that you eat, when is the last time you “caught a cold.” Can you give us an idea about whether you and your kids have been sick or the magnitude of it? Do you or the kids get a cold and you are […]

Surgery

I am having surgery in a week and a half to repair a labral tear in my hip. Is there anything I can take to prepare my body and also to help it recover? I never take any medications, so this will be new to be taking “drugs.” Thank you! Meghan

green smoothies, free apples, strep throat, antibiotics

Locals, if you’re near Lindon / North Orem, there are boxes of free apples in the “Share the Bounty” hut near my house: just south of Center St. on 400 E. (just on the Orem side).

With winter coming up, I know many of you have kids who get strep or ear infections or any number of other illnesses we have come to think of as “normal.” When my family quit eating processed foods many years ago, we eliminated any need for asthma drugs and antibiotics. In Europe, antibiotics are used […]

You don’t eat meat? Then where do you get your protein?

I know, I’ve blogged about this more than any other subject.   But I’m going to say a few more things about it today, just in a slightly different way, because of that old statistic that people have to hear something 11 times before they believe it.   And because that’s the question we plant […]

Need motivation to eat less meat and more plants? . . . part 9 of 12

Some stats on hormones and  antibiotics in our meat supply, and Mad Cow disease: U.S. beef cattle that receive hormone implants: 90% (100% in larger feedlots)   Independent European Union scientists’ report on the effect of hormones added to U.S. beef: they are “complete carcinogens” (able to cause and promote cancer by themselves) (hormone 17 […]

natural remedies for ear infections

I just met this cute blonde mom named Mary Jane, who was telling my friend about her little boy’s chronic ear infection that multiple courses of antibiotics just can’t eliminate.   She was saying that her son’s “cold” just keeps going—six weeks now of constant, thick mucous. I sometimes just can’t believe that no pediatrician […]
