Exactly Why Artificial Sweeteners Are Terrible (part 2)

Aspartame (or brand name Nutrasweet).  Joe Mercola says it’s the most dangerous substance added to foods. I might quibble with that, because mono sodium glutamate is a neurotoxin every bit as deadly. And the nitrates and nitrites in cured meats are potently carcinogenic. I’d agree that aspartame is a TOP THREE worst things, to avoid […]

Should I “eat right for my blood type?”

A recent grad from Institute for Integrative Nutrition applied for the GreenSmoothieGirl Health Coaches certification and said this: “I’ve studied over 100 nutritional plans, and the 12 Steps to Whole Foods program is the most comprehensive, practical, grounded approach I have found.” (That’s the goal. I think I’ve studied all those nutrition plans, too. Most […]

and the oxalate controversy rages on……

We got lots of interesting email in response to my rebuttal to the wildly exaggerated and completely undocumented article posted by one “Sarah, the Healthy Home Economist” that tells people not to drink green smoothies and says they can “devastate” your health. Heidi, a “low oxalate” blogger / site owner wrote a response. I like […]

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 […]

I have paraphrased some of her comments for length: “ I have much respect for Robyn and her goals of sharing important life saving information with all of you. Her willingness to stand up for what she believes in is admirable. I […]

Should I shut the heck up about all things not green smoothie?…..Part 6 of 7

About Dr. L telling me I should not talk about toxic dental practices and stick to whole foods topics only? That is precisely the reason I have a blog in the first place. I don’t want my readers to be as ignorant as I was when I was 27 years old and allowing doctors to […]

Root canals….at the root of much disease?

Root canals are another toxic practice. Over 20 million root canal surgeries are done each year in the U.S. alone. I unfortunately have had two of them, before I knew how dangerous they are, or that I had any other option. Dr. James Howenstine says, “Many chronic diseases, perhaps most, are a result of root […]

amalgam fillings—friend or foe?

I never thought twice about letting the dentist pack mercury into my teeth. Then, with that mercury “safely” packed into my cranium, I cracked ice with my teeth relentlessly for many years. Ten years ago I learned about the importance of getting the mercury OUT of my mouth, and I had my totally traditional dentist […]

DIRTY ELECTRICITY! Our reader does a science experiment—cell phones kill algae!

GSG reader Susan L. wrote us that her son did his science fair experiment with the xZubi technology that you put on the back of your cell phone (also your PC monitors, microwave, TV screen, etc.). The cell phone with no protection killed the algae growing in the petri dish. The xZubi-protected phone killed nothing—the […]

Type 1 Diabetes: is it a life sentence? part 1 of 2

Never do I get more angry and defensive messages than when I write about Type 1 diabetes. (That’s okay—I’m going to talk about it anyway.) Diabetes costs the U.S. $174 billion per year, more than all our recent wars combined. It’s worth talking about and exploring what can be done! If I allow a person […]
