Too Many Trends For 2018

Hello fellow Health Seekers:

Since 2018 is no longer the age in information but the age of Knowledge, it seems that every new year we are overrun with much misleading information of the latest Food Trends, they may be trends, but not always healthy or healing ones, and I would like to address some of these “trends.” From the health gurus online to food magazines…please beware! Just to share some I have recently read:
1. Prebiotics are big! Kumbucha, Kimchi, Kefir, Kraut, Kvass! I totally agree we need prebiotics to lay the groundwork for probiotics to thrive in our gut. But, commercially prepared Kombucha is generally high in sugar content, please read label ingredients and quantities. FYI, most probiotics are DOA (dead on arrival) due to poor shipping and storage at health food stores. Please buy either a probiotic that does not need refrigeration or a fermented one (Vitabiosa) you can purchase on my web site.
2. Canned fish is hot! UGH!Fish is the most toxic flesh protein on the planet, not only heavy metals content but the latest research shows high levels of plastics. Stay away from anything canned in metal, more heavy metal toxicity. Research shows that canned sardines are okay, I have my doubts!
3. Mushrooms!!! NO! Unless they are medicinal as Chaga, Reishi, Shiitake or Lions Mane. All other mushrooms are a non-nutritional fungus.
4. Intermittent fasting. A BIG YES! It gives your body a break, many benefits I will address in a further article. You can fast one day a week, 3 days or longer! From 6 PM tonight until 6 PM tomorrow night would be a great idea!
5: Root to plant cooking! Using the leaves, the stalk, the peelings, nothing is wasted. Leaves in your smoothie, the stalk for a stir-fry, the peelings in your vegetable stock.
6. Weekly vegetarian/vegan meals. A great idea, not just for your health, but for the environment.

I am trying to marry this web site with my new one. If you care to visit www.wholehealthacademy.ca I am tech challenged so working on the “how to’s”

What Is A Healing Diet?

Hello fellow Health Seekers:

Health “experts” are always touting their “best diet” to loose weight, the best kept secrets to eliminate fatigue, the 5 Foods to age gracefully, the 5 Foods to alleviate arthritis pain on and on.

While some of their suggestions may have beneficial results for some, we are not “one size fits all” Barbie dolls. We all have our own one of a kind set of genes, pre dispositions to certain health conditions, individualized  bioflora just as unique as our fingerprints. The same diet will not produce the same results, nor  remove the underlying health concern for everyone ; be it the Paleo diet, Raw food diet, low glycemic diet, GAPS diet, Ketogenic diet, or Body Ecology Diet.

Generally speaking a Healing Diet  will benefit everyone to some degree depending upon your condition. A Healing Diet removes offending foods and substances as artificial additives, gluten, casein, soy, corn, phenols, oxalates and starches and replenishes with whole unprocessed foods, organic and locally grown, fermented foods, good fats, sprouts, quality water, juicing, and supplements.

I will be addressing a Healing Diet, the importance of s BioIndividual Diet plus much more valuable information on my upcoming  free Webinar on January 10th at 8 PM EST, To register:

Hope to “see” you on the 10th
