Ever see someone in the grocery store wiping “germs” off the handle of their shopping? I often wonder, are all those antibacterial wipes providing a false sense of security?

Think about it, unless shoppers are going to wipe down the entire store, then where’s the cutoff point? Did the farmer who picks the lettuce wipe his hands?

How about the guy loading the soda truck? What about the person cutting down the bananas? And what if last night, while you were sleeping, a random bat swooped down and wiped its tiny nose on your front door handle?

Can you see…

Heavy Metals Detox

It’s no secret, when the body is overrun with toxins, the detoxification process begins to slow down. In some cases, it may even come to a grinding halt. With nowhere for toxic substances to go, the body takes a deep sigh, and then stores toxins in fat cells. It does this in an attempt to keep dangerous materials away from vital organs. At this point, weight gain and chronic fatigue become common complaints.

For some, the storing away of toxins such as heavy metals, toxic molds, PCB’s, etc. will continue until one day something finally gives way. …

Mold has saved countless lives thanks to its contribution as the antibiotic, Penicillin. Mold also plays an important role in breaking down organic materials. Its nature’s way of recycling nutrients back into our ecosystem. Without it, life as we know it would cease to exist.

Some of the enzymes found in molds are beneficial to the food industry. For example, mold is used to enhance cheese production. Meanwhile, a species of fungus known as Aspergillus tubingensis, was recently found breaking down plastic. This exciting discovery could one day help to save the planet. …

In this post, all media-hysteria has been omitted and in its place, we’ll concentrate on good old fashioned facts, rather than fear. We’ll then look at some effective ways to bolster your immune system. Ready?

First, let’s take a look at China, with a whopping population of 1.393 billion. To date, China has seen 82'295 COVID-19 cases with 77'816 of those making a complete recovery, and sadly, 3'342 people died, many as a result of pre-existing conditions. As horrible as it sounds, we need to keep that last number in perspective, because every second, of every day, people die.

Take…

Ever wonder how your crisp, organic kale comes to your table without hundreds of tiny bug holes drilled into it?

Perhaps you thought all that squeaky clean, organic produce sitting in your shopping cart was pesticide-free?

What you need to quickly wrap your head around real quick is that “organic” produce is sprayed with an “organic” pesticide. And all pesticides share a common goal: to repel living things.

Look, bugs eat profits, I know this and so do large-scale organic farmers. …

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said, “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.” Today, that statement would be more accurate if it read “Tell me what you absorb and I will tell you what you are.”

In this post, I’ll highlight some of the problems caused by poor absorption and then I’ll offer some simple, but effective solutions. That said, if you are experiencing ongoing digestive issues it’s worth getting yourself checked out by a healthcare provider. Sadly, the mere mention of a leaky gut in your physician’s office can result in an uncomfortably long…

On the surface, groups such as carbohydrates, fats, fiber, and even protein may all seem pretty straightforward. But scratch below the surface and these terms are often misunderstood or used in the wrong context.

Our first example is “fruitsandvegetables.” This isn’t a typo; it’s written that way because people often refer to them as if they were the same thing. Fruit gets people into trouble because of its high sugar content, even more so when it’s been dried out. For anyone looking to follow the ketogenic diet, it may help to think fruit as watery bags of sugar. …

As with any test, it pays to be your own advocate. If you go into this blind, then you are simply hoping that the person doing the testing knows what they are doing. Rest assured, by the time you have finished this post you will have a clear understanding of what each test involves.

Okay, if you have been paying close attention, you may have noticed that heavy metals are an insidious, omnipresent part of everyday life. They are inside our homes and they are inside us. …

At some point, your body is going to come into direct contact with a toxic heavy metal, no question about it. How well you handle that exposure depends on the following three things.

1. The substance.

2. The amount of time spent coming into contact with it.

3. Your ability to detoxify it.

Trace amounts of heavy metals routinely turn up in fruit juice, medications, health supplements, and even baby formula! And yet, when we look at the Earth’s crust as a whole, these heavy metals were once relatively scarce. Ever wonder how we got here?

The link between heavy…
