I promise not to spam you with a lot of junk email. Being busy with my patients, and teaching business mentoring too, I'm happy if I consistently send out 1 or 2 newsletters a month. It seems like something big keeps coming up. I was rear-ended in April and it has had a significant impact on my health. And then I got what I think was food poisoning a couple weeks ago now. That's life right? There's always something getting in the way of our goals!

But, my newsletter is where I announce special offers and big news. And I am marching forward toward some group classes in 2018!

I get asked A LOT if people should juice, or drink the whole food as smoothies.

The answer is BOTH!

YES, we need to eat whole fresh fruits & veg. But we also spend a lot of energy digesting our food, and drinking a fresh juice gives us instant cellular nutrition without having to expend a lot of work to do it.

Also, we can juice things that we wouldn't put in a smoothie - like cabbage, broccoli, carrots, beets, etc.

THIS is one of our FAVORITE soup's.

DAIRY FREE thanks to pureed potatoes

Even if you don't like fennel, it's a "must-try" because a) you won't taste the fennel once it's cooked b) fennel is AMAZING for our immune systems.

When I was getting my Masters Degree in Nutrition at Bastyr almost 20 years ago, I was taught that humans should NOT consume dairy products. Although the dairy industry funds "research" that would say otherwise, do your homework. Follow the money trail.

There are several items I keep on hand for just these times:
Ionic liquid zinc (most potent way to get your zinc and is the source in your food supply)
Zinc 30
Elderberry syrup
Silver hydrosol (we keep the oral, nasal, and throat spray on hand)
Cats claw
Goldenseal
Olive leaf and Oregano caps

If you follow this link, I've listed all of the supplements I personally take and the full brand name, and where/how to get them :)

This has been one of the most visited articles on my site this year.

REBOUNDING

In short, a rebounder is a little mini trampoline. And when you jump on it, even lightly, it moves the fluid in your lymph system.

If you aren't tuned up on the lymph system, it is full of garbage, but it doesn't have a heart like our circulatory system. So it needs us to help it!

I hope you had a great fourth of July holiday!

We went camping, did some fishing, and watched the parade in nearby Red Lodge.

Last night, we watched a documentary called "Sustainability". I learned that in year after year, organic farming CAN compete with conventional farming. Because when you take care of the soil, yields are higher. 31% higher in fact. And this was from a project that has been tracking data for 34 years!

I know we all worry a lot about the bees, but the film also drilled home the point that we must ALSO take care of our soil. Even if we do save the bees, we're toast if we don't take care of the soil.

Moral of the story? Support a local organic farmer of course! See you at the farmers market! What do you love to buy from your local producers?

In case you didn't know, it's best to buy fresh fruits, veggies, and leafy greens. If you eat legumes, you could buy dried and cook them yourself.

If you buy canned goods, consider doing so minimally and spend the extra $$ to buy in glass. An asceptic container is perhaps 2nd best but even then, your food is housed in some sort of chemical.

Things I buy in glass: coconut water, tomato sauce, artichoke hearts.

Things I have never seen in a glass jar but it'd be nice: black olives (not kalmata), mandarin oranges. We keep a few of these around for DIY gluten free dairy free pizza night.

BPA is an endocrine disruptor. We all have hormones. Men and women. Infertility rates are sky rocketing. This is just one piece of the puzzle.

I write a lot about toxins, and it's because we are all affected by them.

Personal care products

Our food

Immunizations

Our mouth and what substances we allow on our teeth

Laundry detergents

Air fresheners

Paints, solvents, VOC's

Dioxins

PCB's

So one of the ways I help educate folks is with downloadable recordings. You can listen when it's right for you, instead of showing up in class.

I have a 4-part detox series with 4+ hours of education to help you understand where your toxins are coming from, alternatives as you go forward, and solutions to move them OUT of your body!

Cancer is a mix of toxins and virus's. 95% of us harbor at least one of the hundred plus varieties of the Herpes family of virus's. Toxins are one of their favorite foods.

So most of us are at risk of some form of cancer and then it just depends on how loaded with toxins you are, and if you have a mild or an aggressive form of one of the virus's.

Solution: learn where YOUR toxins come from, and how to get them out. Then also, support your immune system so that the virus's don't get the upper hand.

Start by being informed.
