DECLINING NUTRITIONAL VALUE IN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES MAY BE A CONCERN.

For years the debate has raged on about the benefits and drawbacks of modern farming techniques. Industrial agriculture or “hyper-farming” has resulted in giant strides in crop yield, but many claim nutrient content – and thus their total nutritional value to humans – has been suffering.
The average yield in terms of bushels per acre for major crops in the US has sky rocketed since the 1950’s. Corn is up 342%! Wheat is up 290% while both Soy beans and Alfalfa are up about 170%. Similar sorts of yield gains have occurred in Europe, Australia, Japan and other regions of the world as well.

Data presented by researchers from the Department of Soil Sciences at the University of Wisconsin Madison shows that while these great advances in crop yield have occurred in the last 50 years nutrient content has been under siege and declining. Similarly, a review of data published by the USDA’s ARC Nutrient Data Laboratory shows “a sharp decline in the minerals, vitamins and other nutrients in foods since the last comprehensive survey”, about 20

Two Health Tips For These Economic

I was ecstatic when I read today that this sick economy keeps patients from the doctor. This is tip number one: AVOID going to the doctor! What a wonderful opportunity to learn how to be well! In the story I was reading physicians are worrying about people skipping their medicine and putting off tests which they feel will result in more expensive treatments later. Too me, all they are doing is fanning the fires of fear. Most likely when we stay away from doctors we get better! In fact when doctors went on strike a number of years ago the morticians screamed. The death rates went down! More people die from cancer treatments than from cancer and the third leading cause of death in the United States are ones that are Iatrogenic, (death from doctor treatments!)

Trends today show that filled prescriptions have dropped in pharmacies and diagnostic tests have dropped in many hospitals. Maybe the trend will continue showing a drop in the spiraling healthcare costs! Wouldn’t that be a silver lining benefit for individuals having trouble paying their insurance premiums or for the self-insured municipalities facing reduced revenue for their budgets? Better yet, but not

Some Dental Health Tips for You

Apart from its cosmetic impact, dental health also holds much relevance for general health. The lack of oral health has been implicated in some diseases like heart and respiratory diseases. On the other hand, it is also considered to be a symptom of certain diseases like diabetes and cancer. The average person presumes that brushing your teeth thoroughly once or twice in a day is more than enough to keep your teeth white and shining. But if your teeth are to last your lifetime, you need to take much better care of them.

Daily Dental Care

Some very simple steps will help to keep your teeth and gums in good conditions. Other than brushing your teeth, flossing is equally important. This helps to get rid of food particles that may be lodged in narrow places between your teeth. The simplest way to keep your teeth clean is to rinse your mouth with water after having a meal or even a snack. Better still, rinse it with a mouthwash which will not only eliminate any bad breath but also prevent the growth of any bacteria.

The Right Toothbrush

Even the choice of your toothbrush can

Focus, Balance and Blend For Total Health, Wealth and Success

“It’s not enough to make time for your children. There are certain stages in their lives when you have to give them the time when they want it. You can’t run your family like a company. It doesn’t work.”

— Andrew Grove

When tough times hit, things can get messy pretty quickly and the stress of the tough times will knock you off your course.  There are two big problems that must be dealt with at this time:

  1. Your course in life can no longer be the course that comes from going with the flow of things (the flow of things is not good and will lead you down a bad path.
  2. The stress of the changes you face will amplify the possibilities of making bad or poor decisions that will negatively impact your health, wealth, and success.

You need a new and better strategy and approach for living fully and experiencing complete health, wealth, and success during tough times.  This quick three-step process for responding, not reacting, to tough times will make a world of difference.

Step 1:  Accept your tough times for what they are and focus on addressing the core pain of

Preventing Hypertension

Hypertension, also know as High Blood Pressure(BP) has become one of the most pressing health issues especially in developed countries.

This increase in BP opens up the Pandora’s box of many other health problems such as atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, dementia, ischemic attack, kidney failure and even loss of vision.

Natural Prostate Health Tips:

You may think that it’s kind of weird for a female naturopath to be discussing prostate issues, but I had a partner die of colon cancer and the cancer spread to his prostate. I miss him.

He had no clue that there were actually alternative treatments that he could do for his cancer. He knew something was wrong, but when he went to his doctor, they couldn’t find anything. He happened to be a veterinarian who worked in a teaching hospital, so he went to the horse barn, pulled out the ultrasound machine and did an ultrasound on the place on his body that hurt. He saw what he thought was a lump, so he took a videotape of the procedure, took it to his doctor who looked at the tape and said, “Gosh! I think you are right!” So, he was scheduled for surgery, but when they opened him up, the cancer had advanced too far. They closed him up without doing anything and sent him home to die. Which he did.

I made up my mind that if I could help anyone develop lifestyle changes that helped them overcome or

Health Tips to Get in Shape For the New Year

With the new year approaching, the first resolution most people think about going for is a gym membership. Year after year the same thing happens. They really want to get into shape, and they know for sure that this year will be different. They sign up for a year membership and start their new goal with clear focus and determination.

Most people never make it past the first week. Why? Mostly because they quit when they realize how much work goes into getting back into the shape they once had.

Total Health and Wellness

Glen Alex has spent her life advocating for better health for people, and now, in her new book, Living in Total Health, she offers a balanced and sometimes surprising journey into what it means to be healthy, wealthy, and wise-or what has become popularly known in the health and wellness community as “wellth.” Glen defines this new term as “the sum total of the richness and wellbeing found in good health. Wellth means being wealthy in health-that one has met certain physical diagnostic ranges and has a meaningful or joyful life. Balance.”

That balance is evident in this book because it’s not just solely about exercise or nutrition. Instead, Glen divides the book into three sections: Physical Wellth, Emotional Wellth, and Mental Wellth. Then each section is broken up into four chapters, including “Moving Your Body” (Physical Wellth), “Being Present” (Emotional Wellth), and “Stressing Less” (Mental Wellth). Each section and chapter is filled with discussion, personal stories to illustrate Glen’s points, and exercises for the reader to become more aware of and practice the topic at hand. Glen further clarifies her goal in the introduction by saying: “The purpose of this book is to offer a different
