Expo West 2012! It’s bedlam. Part 1 of 2

Expo West in Anaheim is one of the ten biggest trade shows in the world, of any kind, and the biggest “natural products” expo in the world. I’m blogging this week about my adventures there. We always go with SunWarrior to Au Lac, Chef Ito’s raw vegan restaurant. All the same people are there every […]

Julie eliminates dairy, and look what happens!

Like me, new GSG reader Julie got rid of dairy and sugar. That change solved Cade’s problem 17 years ago, and Julie’s little girl’s identical problem very recently. (My son was allergy-tested and was not allergic to milk. The fact is that it is mucous-forming for human beings to drink cow’s milk. And the constant […]

What can I use to replace MILK?

Newbies ask me this question all the time when they learn that milk, contrary to the $50 million advertising budget of the Dairy Council, isn’t a good food for humans. It’s not even a particularly useable form of calcium (unless you’re a baby cow). Plus it’s mucous forming, and when your body is battling mucous […]

I got this from Jackie on my customer support team: “We’ve been getting a lot of people asking about whether you can reverse osteoporosis. Can you address this on the blog?” First of all, we have to stop believing, as a culture, that drinking cow’s milk is some kind of insurance against osteoporosis. The U.S. […]

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 […]

My daughter asks, “Why do we get sick?”

Dear Mom: “Why do we get colds? Why did I get this cold and you didn’t?” Answer: (This question came from my 13 y.o. daughter, my most resistant healthy eater. I explained it to her and thought you might like the answer as well, highly simplified.) “First of all, a mild cold with clear mucous […]

I have more energy at 42 than I did at 22!

Thanks again for signing up for my free newsletter.   See, I was just like you might be.   I found myself in a place I hated: sluggish, 15 pounds overweight, suffering with a variety of health problems . . . and I was only 25 years old! But that’s a story you already know […]

Extra ingredients for green smoothies [part 7 of 9]

Pomegranate juice Pomegranate juice is another very hot product because of a few studies linking it to slowing growth of prostate cancer and arthritis, and reducing breast and skin cancer.   It’s been linked to improvement of several cardiovascular measurements, including thinning the blood and improving blood flow, lowering LDS cholesterol, and increasing HDL (“good”) […]

the data on benefits of RAW FOOD . . . part 1 of 3

In the next few blogs, I’ll review for you research on the benefits of raw plant food I found in various sources.   Unfortunately, science isn’t too interested in studying the effects of people eating raw food.   Who would fund large-scale prevention studies to document what happens when we don’t tax our enzyme production […]
