Have You Tasted REAL Olive Oil? (and how you can get a $39 bottle for only $1)

Real-Live-Oil-main-graphic

What’s the most important secret to know whenever you shop for extra virgin olive oil? It’s that real olive oil, unlike wine, does not get better with age. 

Just the opposite. More like fresh juice, olive oil is at its very best (maximum flavor and nutritional value) right after being pressed.

But here’s the problem, which you can see for yourself if you check the label on the olive oil bottle sitting in your pantry or on any of the bottles at your favorite grocery store or gourmet shop. That is, you won’t find a harvest date on any of them. An expiration date, perhaps, but no harvest date.

Here’s why: olive oil marketers purposely omit putting the harvest date on their labels because they don’t want you to know how old – and therefore stale – their olive oil is.

Mineral Power vs. other HTMA programs

Mineral-Power-vs.-Other-HTMA-Programs-1

I get a lot of questions about the difference between Mineral Power and a basic Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA). Why is it so much more expensive? I put together this post to help explain the difference.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, or HTMA, is a simple process whereby a small sample of hair is tested to reveal your mineral deficiencies and heavy metal toxicities. The hair is tested because it is one of many places the body dumps excess minerals and heavy metals for storage away from vital organs.

A lot of practitioners do this kind of test. But a hair mineral analysis is only as good as the person reading the test and the supplements that are given to correct the issues on the test and detox the metals. Not to mention the follow up support. That is the MOST important aspect of any detox program. Read More…

Sun Basket Organic Delivery Meals – Healthy Cooking Made Easy

Screen-Shot-2016-12-21-at-10.03.01-PM

Sun Basket delivery meals make healthy cooking easy and delicious. I’ve been using this service for many months and am SO HAPPY with the food, the satisfaction of cooking at home, and eliminating wasted food!

There are a lot of food delivery services out there. I tried them all before I made a recommendation for you and for my clients to try. One problem I have with some is that when the food is sent you to pre-prepared, it becomes a bit unappetizing after a few days. I have tried a few and really didn’t like them.

What I found I enjoyed the most with many of the food delivery services was when all the ingredients were sent to me and I got the satisfaction of cooking and preparing home cooked meals. I like to cook them myself with my favorite olive oils, sea salts, and other high quality ingredients. That way I know EXACTLY what I’m getting in my food – no industrial seed oils, no partially hydrogenated oils, no table salt, no pesticides.

Oxalates: Their Influence on Chronic Disease

Oxalates-Their-Influence-on-Chronic-Disease-main-graphic

New science and clinical experience reveal concerns about oxalates that far exceed traditional kidney stone pathology. In order to best support their patients and clients, integrative practitioners, and especially diet and nutrition specialists would benefit from greater understanding of their influence.

Oxalates are highly reactive molecules; they present in our body as sharp crystals or crystalline structures with jagged edges that cause pain, irritation, and distress. They can bind with certain minerals; particularly calcium and magnesium, as well as iron and copper. Read More…

The Good, Bad & Dark Of Coffee

liveto110_wendymyers_coffee_goodbaddark1

Coffee is uplifting and energizing. That cup of Joe for many is a morning ritual. There is research out that says coffee may be more of a mood enhancer than was once thought. According to research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, regularly drinking coffee can help to prevent depression. Is it possible caffeine can change brain chemistry to equal Prozac and Zoloft.

In a study involving women, all nurses, coffee provided a way for many to reduce the chances of developing depression. The study spanned ten years, tracking the coffee drinking habits and mood of over 50,000 women. Those who drank a moderate amount of coffee — two to three cups a day — had a 15 percent drop in risk. Drinking three to four cups showed a 20 percent drop. The majority of study participants who did develop depression were the ones who drank very little coffee, a cup or two in a week.
