Do you find yourself saying “I can’t afford organic?” I AM CALLING YOUR BLUFF!

I can’t believe it took me 28 years to feel FABULOUS! I can’t believe that I lived with a constant stomach ache my whole life. I can’t believe that I thought all the expensive beauty products in the world would make me beautiful. I can’t believe I thought all the retail therapy would help ease my stress. I can’t believe I trusted my doctor’s word that I had to just deal with my IBS and that my hypothyroidism was incurable. I am grateful that at 26 years old I found the holistic world with some great doctors and educators to teach me the truth. 

The truth is that understanding your health is quite simple. The food you put in your body will make up your cells, blood, skin, hair, and soul. If you feed your body crap, then you are going to eventually look and feel like crap! If you aren’t giving your body the vitamins and minerals it needs, how do you expect to have soft skin, beautiful hair, and a clear face? If you aren’t giving your body nutrition, what do you think will happen to your cells when they start to divide? Will they divide and replicate into more healthy cells, or will the divide and start to build cancer cells and other metabolic diseases? We all have cancer and bad cells in our body, and only YOU have the power to fight them off by giving your body proper nutrition.

14 Most Dirty, Contaminated Produce You Don't Want To Touch

The organic vs conentional food debate continues. Today, the United States uses 1.2 BILLION POUNDS of pesticides a year. With that type of use you'd think it would kill all the bugs right? WRONG! Only .01 percent actually kill the bugs; the rest ends up contaminating our food, air, and water. With pesticides entering our food chain, they have increased the rate of cancer, birth defects, brain and nervous system toxicity, hormone disruption, nerve disorders, blood disorders, and skin, eye, and lung irritation. 

If you are eating conventionally grown produce you are putting yourself at the highest risk of developing these awful diseases. You should be especially cautious if you live downwind or downstream of sprayed crops in your area too. Have children? Infants and young children need to stay away from conventionally grown produce AT ALL COSTS as their bodies are still developing and exposure could be detrimental to their long term health.

Alternative Medicine = Organic, Whole Food

Posted by Jennifer Gebbie on September 7, 2013 | 0 Comments

My boyfriend and I have differing opinions when it comes taking OTC drugs. He grew up in a household that was readily stocked with medications and always had the biggest bottle of ibuprofen you could find. Perfect example - yesterday he was complaining of a headache after being in the sun all afternoon. Instead of grabbing a glass of water (as I knew he was just dehydrated), he goes for the bottle of ibuprofen.

We take medicine and expect results. Why is it wrong to think we can't eat the right foods and expect similar results? Somewhere between the paradigm shift of our hunting and gathering days to mass industrialization of "food" we forgot what it is like to eat real, whole, pure food. 

We have come to accept that we go to the grocery and buy foods that are so processed that they have to be fortified with vitamins and minerals to make them "safe" to consume again. Did you know that when grains were first introduced to the market, the government made manufactures fortify them with vitamins and minerals because they realized grains were making people sick? Dr. Peter Osborne talks more about the fortification process and the detrimental qualities of grains
