Natural Suntanning and Sunburn Prevention and Relief

Rodale News reported recently on foods that can (a) prevent sunburn, and (b) treat sunburn. I love to slather fresh aloe vera on it. (Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you must have an aloe plant in your house. They are succulents and hard to kill. I’ve had mine for 15 years. Every […]

Second Chance group buy! And, Why I Love Coconut Oil!

We’re doing a SECOND CHANCE group buy—with not only UNPASTEURIZED almonds, but also the best coconut oil I’ve ever tried, organic and cold pressed, silky and delicious—and for nearly $7/gallon less than our wholesale GROUP BUY price was. You don’t want to miss this. We may sell out before the event ends Mar. 31. We […]

Favorite Ways and Recipes to Use Coconut Oil!

An inexpensive, whole-food, highly nourishing moisturizer! Use a small, clean jar, and fill it with coconut oil. (I have these in my purse, my bathroom vanities, and even in my desk.) I put it on my lips, which feels amazing, although it doesn’t have a beeswax moisture barrier like lip balms do. And I slather […]

Is Coconut Oil Friend or Foe?

This is an excerpt of blogs I wrote in March, 2011. Thanks to a GSG reader for sending this New York Times article. A lot of the things I’ve been teaching for a long time are starting to go mainstream, about the power of coconut oil. I believed them only when I found a dozen […]

More…..about scars on the human body

Nikki wrote me about my last blog post. She said she was pondering the scar conversation we had, and about how scars point to some other things: She said, isn’t it amazing how the autonomic nervous system does things like breathing, creating white blood cells to fight infection, starting self-healing processes immediately upon being wounded.

And what to do about SCARS?

On the long drive home from Tijuana to Utah earlier this month, I stopped at a McD’s because they have the cleanest bathrooms. And, well, because I’d drunk the 32 oz green juice I swerved off the freeway to get, at the Henderson Whole Foods Market. Inside the stall, a pink Post-It Note was taped […]

What to do about WRINKLES?

After yoga, when I’m rolling up my mat, seems like often a GSG reader comes over to chat. Tell me their green smoothie experience, ask what to do to help a friend struggling with health problems, ask me when the group buy ends. Stuff like that. Recently, Cheryl, a 53-yo, very fit breast cancer survivor, […]

First three to write us get free Zen Society skincare products

I don’t sell any skincare products—but virtually all the skincare products you can buy in a drugstore or even high-end makeup lines have dozens of toxins in them. Anything you put on your skin is used by the body the same way what you eat is. That is, it goes right into the bloodstream. Fragrances […]

dramatic testimonial from “the happiest grama on the planet”

We get a lot of wonderful testimonials, both in person when I teach, and via email on the site. Few are as dramatic as this one we got from Mary Kay: Since hearing about your website six months ago, I have been drinking a quart of green smoothies every day. People I meet now ask […]

Thyroid—you might have a problem and not know it

All estimates I’ve read are that 25 to 50 percent or more of American women have significant thyroid issues. Possibly over half of women over 40. Most of these women are undiagnosed. If you have low thyroid, which is the most common thyroid problem, symptoms may be low energy, slow metabolism / weight gain, dry […]
