The rest of the story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 1 of 2.

So here’s the rest of the story with Rich, my first high-school boyfriend. I told you how I ran into him on the plane on his way to pharmacists’ immunization training, and he helped us out in Seattle. I told him, as we reminisced, that before I straightened out my lifestyle, I was 26 and […]

Are you fixing the plumbing, or building a mansion? Part 2 of 2

At church Sunday, someone was making an announcement about a care center that wants us to bring them snacks for the mentally handicapped residents: “The care center staff said they want HEALTHY treats, like fruit snacks and Gushers.” I don’t know what Gushers are, but the fact that they have a brand name is a […]

Today I hired a young newlywed named Trina, who trained in raw foods at Tree of Life Institute and whose mother is a friend of mine and neighbor who has been raw for over 10 years. (Thanks to everyone who applied–many of you are PERFECT, and I am keeping your contact info in case I […]

Immunization, part 1 of 2

Another conversation we had, hanging out with my extended family Saturday night, was about immunization. Five of my six brothers’ wives immunize. My mother is fervently against all vaccines, across the board, and my only sister chose not to vaccinate her four kids. (I just texted her to confirm that.) My youngest brother’s wife has […]

Is agave a superfood or a poison?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Dr. Mercola says agave is going to kill me! Is he right? Answer: I have been inundated with emails about this. In every class I teach, someone brings it up. First of all, Dr. Mercola didn’t exactly say that, although he allowed it on his web site. Mercola is a brand, a big […]

Breast Cancer and ObamaCare . . . part 1 of 3

The headline in my paper, Mar. 26, is “Up to a Third of Breast Cancer Cases Could be Avoided.” Western countries could avoid 25 to 30 percent of breast cancer cases if they ate less and exercised more. (That’s lowest-common-denominator stuff. What if they not only got thinner and exercised, but they ate POWERFULLY HEALING […]

Dr. Punger’s foreword, part 2 of 2

[continued from yesterday, Dr. Punger's foreword to my 12 Steps to Whole Foods course] The mystery of making tasty, healthy meals out of whole foods was unraveled. I needed all the information she posts on the web, but the organized, sequential course is essential. I wish I had it when I first found out I […]

flu vaccine danger

My (ridiculously gorgeous) boyfriend Craig got the H1N1 vaccine on Weds. He took his kids to a free clinic–he said it was pandemonium, with people wearing masks and all kinds of crazy stuff. I could send you to Mike Adams’ (Health Ranger) or Joe Mercola’s sites to read a lot of fear mongering (or good […]

raw food in India? an interesting email from a reader

We get some really interesting email, and I’ve pasted one below that we got this week that I think you’ll enjoy. It corroborates what I have noticed being in 16 countries in the past 18 months. That is, the influence of American culture on the rest of the world has not been wholly positive, and […]
