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 […]

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 […]

All I think about is cancer…if there were a cure, my doc would tell me…part 5 of 7

That old “if there were a cure for cancer, wouldn’t all the doctors be using it?” an M.D. employs in his rant I just read against all non-toxic treatments is a farce.

hot dogs as bad for you as cigarettes?

Thanks to alert reader Lowana, for sending me this article about hot dogs. I think the very first nutrition study I read in my 20′s was about childhood cancer. The study found only one commonality in the children who had developed cancer, versus the control group: they consumed 11+ hot dogs per month. (Yes, I […]

Reversing osteoporosis

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. […]

Coconut oil health benefits….going mainstream, part 1 of 2

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–which I believed only when I found a dozen miraculous health benefits of it for myself. This blog entry isn’t about […]

Back from Africa: Green Smoothies, Detox, and Dr. Oz

I’m just back after 2 weeks in Africa, perhaps the most amazing trip of my life. I’ll show-n-tell about it this week. Meantime, I’m getting a late start on our detox, but I’m on it! Are you? I’m doing half a gallon of green smoothies daily, and 100% raw, for the rest of January. When […]

Should I Take Vitamins? part 1 of 2

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Should I take multivitamins? If so, which kind? Answer: No. Whole foods, 60-80% raw, what I teach you, covers your nutritional needs. One of the tougher things to get from your diet is omega fatty acids, but a little bit of flaxseed, or flax oil, several times a week (or fish oils, a […]
