Can green smoothies “DEVASTATE” your health?

Sarah the Healthy Home Economist online recently posted an article about how green smoothies can “DEVASTATE” your health.  The content was so unsubstantiated that at first I refused to respond to it. But Amanda said, “She has a big audience and people are freaking out about it.” Sarah cites the oxalates phenomenon, wherein a natural […]

The latest green smoothie debate, part 2 of 3

In addition to that formalized piece of research, we have had thousands of testimonials mailed to the site, and I’ve spoken in 2011 to 50 live audiences of approximately   9,000 people. Many of them stay after and wait for up to 2 hours to talk, and many email us, and I daily hear stories […]

An open letter to practitioners of Oncology

Dear Oncology Practitioner: Let’s lay down the weapons, and take up a flashlight instead. Let’s shine the light on whether cutting, burning, and poisoning really work. Let’s care about the human body’s sanctity, and the need we have for our immune system for the rest of our lives, more than we care about debate, defensiveness, […]

obesity conference

This is an email I got from a GSG reader. Dr. Larsen is a dentist who studies nutrition to help his patients and practices what he preaches. His observations at the obesity conference he recently attended parallel my own, as documented sometimes on this blog. What do you think? Robyn, I attended a seminar in […]

Always use an antibiotic for strep and ear infections, right?

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 […]

The Essential GreenSmoothieGirl Library . . . part 7

These are books important for parents to own: Randall Neustaedter’s The Vaccine Guide is the most science based, objective, and compelling look on the vaccine issue of all the books I read as I made the difficult decision not to immunize my children.   For instance, although the DPT shot seemed a no-brainer to avoid […]

The Essential GreenSmoothieGirl Library . . . part 3

Does God want us to eat plant food? . . . part 4 of 4

The late LDS (Mormon) prophet Gordon B. Hinckley was kinder than I was in my statement yesterday that LDS people are mostly “grossly negligent” in their observance of Word of Wisdom scripture.   He said this: “I regret that we as a people do not live [the Word of Wisdom] more fully.”   The late […]

the recalcitrant spouse . . . part three (of four)

FOUR, just put more nutritious foods in the menu without taking any kind of soapbox stand about it.   Just do it with no fanfare, and have a rule that it’s bad manners to criticize the cook.   (You don’t want your kids leaving your home and turning their noses up at others’ cooking anyway, […]

Who you gonna call, Part VII the guys telling you to eat for your “type”

Joe Mercola’s been hyping his metabolic typing program to his 1.5 million readers.   You, too, can pay big bucks for it, as soon as he’s done creating it.   He continues to tell people to eat lots of whey protein powder (which he sells) and avoid eating  grains, despite a massive body of evidence […]
