The new Coronavirus (dubbed “COVID-19” or “nCoV-2019”) is likely the hottest topic of discussion around the world today. What I’m not hearing or seeing in the media is discussion and information about natural and holistic medicines and how we have viable protective and anti-viral options available right now! What I am seeing is the hype that scares everyone. This article will address several of the available herbs, foods, and more that can be found in your kitchen and at our clinic or other natural health stores.

DEMONIZING COCONUT OIL…Again!?

 

It all started on June 16th with an article in USA Today proclaiming:

   “Coconut Oil isn’t healthy.   It’s never been healthy.”   

and

   “The American Heart Association recently released a report advising against the use of coconut oil.”

View the full USA Today article

         Recommendation regarding the AHA’s demonization of Coconut Oil:  

                  Think further than your instant fears.

 

 OUR ‘TAKE’ IN A NUTSHELL

This article looks like it was written by the Vegetable Oil Manufacturing Association.  In our opinion, we would like to see more science and actual studies, […]

Do Dogs Need Fruits and Vegetables?

 

Have you ever wondered about the value (or harm) we humans cause by feeding our animals like ourselves?   For example, have your dogs been happily munching raw carrots as treats for years, like ours?   Could that actually be a good thing, or is it not a good idea?   There are arguments, data, and science supporting both sides of this issue.

 

First, let me note that no one at Lotus Blossom Clinic is a trained veterinarian, and you are encouraged always to […]

THIS FOOD IS KILLING US, SOFTLY, SLOWLY

Roundup

Wayne Dyer, a well-established self-help and personal growth guru, recently said to a crowd of 3,000 people: “You can change your consciousness by changing your food.”  Our brains become clearer and our bodies function best when we eat foods our body is capable of using for fuel, and there’s a lot out there these days that we cannot process.   In Wayne’s own experience, very debilitating conditions can reverse with food changes.    For example, his wife had Grand Mal epileptic seizures until his friend, Dr. David Perlmutter, suggested she stop eating wheat.  […]

Happy CellsPart 3 in our 3-part series:  CANCER, It Isn’t What You Think

“In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.”

—Galileo Galilei, 1564-1642

 

Suzanne Somers was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001.  She understood that she had TIME to research and to determine her course of treatment because cancer does not kill overnight.  As she began to study the situation, she was horrified with conventional cancer treatment’s lack of success with chemotherapy.  For example, according to her research, Testicular Cancer, […]

WHO ARE THE GOOD GUYS (of GMO)?

By |February 10th, 2015|Food as Medicine|

Happy Food for You!

We are also relearning that our elders had some smarts 40-50 years ago. Another great idea from the past which is beginning to catch on again is using crop rotation instead of Roundup! http://www.nationofchange.org/how-crop-rotation-can-replace-gmo-poisons-grow-better-food-world-1375798417

PAY BACK IS COMING….
As we finish this series on GMO’s, I have a prediction for the future. Remember breast implant lawsuits against Dow Corning, Baxter, and Bristol-Myers Squibb back in the 1990’s? Mark my words: The next big series of lawsuits will likely be about Genetic Engineering and GMO’s. There will be thousands of […]

Why spend the extra money on Organic?

I often have patients say that they just don’t have the money to buy organically grown food.  I can sympathize because I shop at the same places they do.

I have added a link to this article because it does help prove the point that food that is raised on these Agribusiness farms is treated like a product, not as a health nutritious meal.  The faster you produce a product the more money you make, so of  course the amount of time required to produce the product is key.  For example if you can […]
