Spirulina - Organic

  • Description
  • More Details

Organic Spirulina

Spirulina, a blue-green algae, is the immortal descendent of the earth's original life form. Over 3.5 billion years ago, blue-green algae produced our oxygen atmosphere so life could evolve. Much later on, wild harvests of spirulina nourished peoples in Central America and Africa.

After decades of extensive research and testing, scientists and doctors worldwide are hailing spirulina as the greatest and most important nutritional discovery in history. This blue green algae offers the most powerful concentration of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients ever seen in any food, plant, grain or herb. Because of this high concentration of easily digestible nutrients, spirulina is preferred as a food supplement by athletes, dieters, convalescents, vegetarians, bodybuilders, health practitioners and people of all ages who are attentive to their health.

Medical research has shown that spirulina produces the following results:

Energy Enhancement & Anaemia
Spirulina markedly increases available energy - it is very rich in vitamin E and bio-chelated iron (for enriched blood/cellular oxygenation).

Slimming
Spirulina normalises weight with effective natural appetite suppressants, by stimulating glandular functions (youth/sex hormones), increasing metabolism; and by satisfying the body's real biochemical needs by optimising nutrition.

Stress/PMT Relief
Spirulina is extremely effective for stress reduction and relief restoring and enhancing our normal biological control systems. It is the world's richest source of antioxidants and GLA (the active ingredient in Evening Primrose Oil).

Cholesterol Reduction
A recent medical study has shown that spirulina, taken regularly, has the ability to reduce blood cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL undesirable fat) levels in the blood.

Antibiotic, Anti-Fungal Effects
Spirulina inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi.

Cancer suppressant
A recent study has shown that daily ingestion of a small amount of spirulina maintains or accelerates normal lymphocyte (immune control cell) function to prevent generation of malignancy, such as cancer, or to inhibit its growth or recurrence.

Wound healing
Studies have shown that spirulina in creams, ointments, and taken orally, accelerates wound healing, promotes skin metabolism and reduces scarring.

HIV/AIDS
Extracts from spirulina have been shown to kill HIV - the virus associated with AIDS - in vitro.

Vitamin B12
The bioavailability of vitamin B12 in Spirulina is in dispute. Several biological assays have been used to test for the presence of vitamin B12. The most popular is the US Pharmacopeia method using the Lactobacillus leichmannii assay. Studies using this method have shown Spirulina to be a minimal source of bioavailable vitamin B12. However, this assay does not differentiate between true B12 (cobalamin) and similar compounds (corrinoids) that cannot be used in human metabolism. Cyanotech, a grower of spirulina, claims to have done a more recent assay, which has shown Spirulina to be a significant source of cobalamin. However the assay is not published for scientific review and so the existence of this assay is in doubt.

Spirulina is unsurpassed in its power to help enhance metabolism and normalise weight, makes you feel younger, stronger and sharper, give you a powerful sense of potency and aliveness, and a greater resistance to stress, tiredness and disease. Our spirulina is grown organically and spray dried at very low temperature so valuable nutrients are preserved

Our spirulina powder is certified organic by Naturland.

The Organic Spirulina certification under Naturland, Germany is based on Naturland Organic Standards of January 2006 under 'Processing standards for the production of microalgae and microalgae products'.

Purple Corn

  • Description
  • More Details

Purple corn, a variety of Zea mays, is an Andean crop from low valleys locally called maiz morado. Grown in South America and in particular Peru for thousands of years, it is cultivated in the coast, as well as in lands almost ten thousand feet high. There are different varieties of purple corn, and all of them originated from an ancestral line called “Kculli”, still cultivated in Peru. The Kculli line is very old, and ancient objects in the shape of these particular ears of corn have been found in archeological sites at least 2,500 years old in places in the central coast, as well as among the ceramics of the “Mochica” culture.  This purple corn has been extensively used as a staple food and a natural colouring dye. There are very few purple plants to be found in nature, and thus if you are to eat a true rainbow diet, this purple corn extract is a helpful and tasty addition.

Purple corn is one of nature’s richest sources of at least six different anthocyanin antioxidants - containing even more than blueberries. Purple corn also contains substantial amounts of phenolics, among other phytochemicals. Its main colourant is cianidin-3-b-glucosa. 

Recently, anthocyanins have been studied and reported to have antimutagenic, antimicrobial and anticarcinogenic properties.

Please buy below

Anthocyanins are a type of complex flavonoid that produce blue, purple or red colors. Anthocyanins encourage connective tissue regeneration and are anti-inflammatory. They promote blood flow and reduce cholesterol, in addition to being antioxidants. Anthocyanins seem to stabilize and protect capillaries from oxidative damage and have been shown to stabilize connective tissue, promote collagen formation, improve microcirculation and help protect blood vessels from oxidative damage.


People of the Andes make a refreshing drink from purple corn called "chicha morada" which is now recognized as a nutritive powerhouse due to its phenolic content. Phenolics are known to have many bioactive and functional properties. Research shows that crops with the highest total phenolic and anthocyanin content also have the highest antioxidant activity.

Purple Corn has higher antioxidant capacity and antiradical kinetics than blueberries and higher or similar anthocyanin and phenolic contents.

Purple Corn Flour

Purple corn flour is made from simply grinding the kernels of the corn into a flour. In Peru the flour is called Harina de Maiz and is used like wheat flour is used here - that is for just about everything.

Purple Corn Extract

The purple corn extract is created by juicing the purple corn then slowly, at low temperatures, evaporating off the liquid in the juice until this pure powder remains.

This product tastes like the essence of corn (a faint sweetness with a subtle hint of American whiskey with no alcohol). Purple corn extract is a wonderful addition to smoothies, cacao/chocolate parties, cacao/chocolate drinks, alchemical raw-food recipes, and dressings.

Once open, please refrigerate. One level teaspoon (approximately 1 gram) per day per person is a good dose of purple corn extract. A little goes a long way with this rare & powerful product.

Cashew Nuts - Truly Raw from Bali

  • Description
  • More Details

We source these delicious raw cashews from a small-scale growers' co-operative in Bali who have developed both ecological sustainability in the dry north east of Bali and economic viability from these delicious cashews.

Experience the difference in taste and quality…You’ll never look for another cashew!

Delicious new season's whole & split cashews are in stock now

Cashew TreeOur cashews are hand picked from organically certified trees and are “cracked” open with traditional knives and hand-polished to remove the “kulit ari”, a thin skin protecting the kernel. The result is a truly raw cashew kernel so incredibly sweet, soft and white that you simply won’t believe your tastebuds!

Following this traditional process of hand-processing cashews is a labour of love that has nearly disappeared around the globe.

Traditional producers on average can only prepare 2 kilos of raw kernels daily! But the difference between raw and conventionally processed cashews is unmistakable.

By buying these cashews & reinvigorating the market you assist the growers keep the high value work of processing “on-farm” and greatly increase the compensation that they receive for their efforts.

More profit for growers means greater pride of product and more focus on the maintenance, harvest and post-harvest handling of these wonderful nuts…

Bee Pollen Granules - Organic

 
  • Description

Professor Nicolai Tsitsin, a biologist and experimental botanist of the Longevity Institute of the former USSR, studied centenarians in the Caucasus mountains of Georgia and discovered many Georgians living past 100 years and up to 150 years were beekeepers who eat raw, unprocessed honey with high concentrations of pollen. He attributed this longevity to the action of pollen, and concluded that, taken regularly, pollen will prolong the human lifespan considerably.

Now, pollen is eaten by millions of health-conscious people worldwide. Many international and Olympic athletes from all over the world also eat pollen.

What is pollen? Pollen is the male element of flowers. It has enormous nutritive and medicinal properties and forms the ovules, the starting point of the production of fruits, grains, legumes and vegetables. Bees gather pollens which are mixed with nectar to make pellets that are carried into the beehive. A teaspoonful contains approximately 1,200 pellets, each pellet containing 2Ö billion grains of pollen, each capable of fertilising and creating a fruit, a vegetable, a flower, or a stalk of grain. Pollen is a very nutritionally complete food and has the potential to contribute as a major food source for humans.

Flower pollen possesses 185 known nutritional ingredients, including twenty-two amino acids (and more of all the eight essential ones by weight than the traditional high protein foods), twenty-seven minerals, the full range of known vitamins, plus enzymes, carbohydrates, fats, and plant growth hormones and other trace substances not yet identified.

Medical studies have shown the following benefits of pollen:

- Allergies: Pollen has an ability to immunize the body against anemophile (wind and air blown) pollens and relieves allergic symptoms.

- Anaemia: Pollen has been shown in studies to provoke a rapid increase in blood haemoglobin.

- Cancer: A US Department of Agriculture research project concluded that pollen is useful as a cancer preventative and restrictor of tumour development.

- Chelation: Pollen allows more oxygen to reach the body and brain cells by acting as an atherosclerotic flushing agent (a chelator).

- Stamina and Vitality: were increased for those using pollen on a regular basis.

- Convalescence: Pollen brings about a rapid increase in weight and energy during convalescence.
Intestinal: Pollen shows a regulatory action on intestinal functions - both on constipation as well as in cases of diarrhoea resistant to antibiotics.

- Menstruation: Pollen has been shown to bring relief in cases of painful and irregular menstruation.
Radiation: Laboratory animals exposed to high doses of radiation have been shown to have been protected by including pollen in their diet.

- Relaxation: Pollen produces a calming, tranquillising, and sedating effect without any side effects.

- Wound-healing: Pollen has been shown to increase the rate of healing, reduce scarring and prevent infection.

The United States Department of Agriculture (1992) tested and compared Bee Pollen with other fruit and vegetables and found that Bee Pollen, on a per calorie basis:

- has twice as much iron as any other common food type. Iron is essential for the effective flow of oxygen throughout the body. Bee Pollen contains over seven times more iron than beef.

- is higher in protein than most high-protein foods. Bee Pollen contains up to 50% more muscle-building protein than beef does

- is a valuable source of calcium. Strong bone development depends on high levels of dietary calcium. Bee Pollen contains twice as much calcium as milk.

- contains the strong antioxidant vitamins A (beta carotene), C and E, and was found to contain higher levels of beta carotene than all common foods except tomatoes.

- is an excellent source of three B Vitamins: Thiamin, Riboflavin and Niacin.

Bee Pollen has the highest natural level of folic acid (folate) of any common food, which may support the prostate gland and cell regeneration. It also contains natural antioxidants, of which the flavonoid quercetin is useful for helping the body’s natural response to allergens. Bee Pollen has also been shown to assist with energy levels, stamina, and athletic performance.

Pollen is becoming popular for curing cases of acne, obesity, lost appetite, weakness, loss of weight, intestinal disorders, psychosis, neurasthenia, retarded growth, cerebral haemorrhage, memory loss, general debility, minimal brain dysfunction in children, convalescence, and general malaise.

A study comparing cracked-shell pollen and natural pollen, such as Comvita Bee Pollen, showed there was no significant difference in terms of the bioavailability of a number of key components (Lister 1999)

Our pollen is certified organic harvested in New Zealand from native flowers.

Hempseed Oil - Pure Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin - Organic - Uncertified

  • Description
  • More Details

We are pleased to offer the high quality culinary hemp seed oil, created from the finest locally harvested hemp.

Hempseed oil is a miracle of nature. Its unique properties offer fantastic nutritional, health and skin-care benefits...and good taste has never been so fabulous.

Rich, nutty and delicate in flavour, this oil contains the only naturally-occurring and perfectly balanced nutritional balance of Essential Fatty Acids, Omega 6 and Omega 3. Hempseed oil is just now coming on the market and supercedes all existing oils that have been used to obtain EFAs in the past (ie flax seed oil, evening primrose oil and borage oil) - what's more, it's the first delicious edible oil to accomplish this.

Hempseed oil is cold-pressed to ensure that key nutrients, enzymes and acids are not destroyed and health benefits are maximised.

A delicious full-flavoured salad, drizzling and dipping oil, hemega3™ hempseed oil is a fresh and very healthy alternative. hempseed oil is recommended as a base for salad dressings and pasta oils and it enhances the flavour of fish, seafood, meats and vegetables.

 The human body uses fatty acids from food for building tissues and for specialised functions such as the production of prostaglandins, localised tissue hormones. One major group of fatty acids is called essential fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated, and include two major groups, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. They are called “essential” because the body cannot make them and thus, must obtain them from food sources.

Hemp seed oil is the only edible seed oil to contain over 80% polyunsaturated EFA's and boasts not only the optimum ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6, but also GLA and SDA.

What is the 'optimum Omega ratio' all about?

Research data suggests that the optimum ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 for the ultimate human health ranges from 3:1 to 5:1. The World Health Organisation (Sweden/Japan) recognises this optimum ratio to be 3:1. Studies in western populations today show that a typical diet has a ratio range of 10:1 to 20:1 - see illustration >

It is likely that excess refined foods, dairy and a lack of whole foods have contributed to this lack of balance, and in turn, our failing health. Through adjusting our diet to allow more natural intake of these EFA's, we can improve our cellular health and maximise long-term vitality.

What about GLA and SDA Essential Fatty Acids?

Incorporating GLA and SDA into our diets helps our bodies assimilate fatty acids (ie the omegas). The edibility of hemp seed oil is particularly beneficial as an alternative to other GLA rich sources (ie sunflower or evening primrose oil). Adding GLA to the diet seems to lower risks of heart attacks because omega-3 fatty acids reduce the clotting tendency of the blood and improve cholesterol profiles. They also have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, making GLA and SDA useful for people with arthritis and autoimmune disorders

Health Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil

Essential fatty acids perform a major role in the human body, and we must obtain them from food sources to derive the health benefits as listed below:

Hormonal Balance

Hemp is the only edible seed containing GLA and magnesium-rich chlorophyll, both which are beneficial in helping with PMS conditions including breast tenderness, bloating, cramping and other discomforts.

Cardiovascular Tonic

Omega-3 oils have been shown in hundreds of studies to lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels - they are also effective in decreasing blood pressure, platelet stickiness and fibrinogen levels. Numerous studies have shown that the substitution of polyunsaturated fats for saturated fats can reduce the risk of sudden cardiac arrest and high blood cholosterol levels. Research has found that for every 1% increase in omega-3, there was a 5mm Hg decrease in systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressure. These EFA's, especially GLA, have also been found beneficial in both treating and offering protection against various cancers.

Inflammation + Allergies

Omega-3 helps produce PG3 (prostaglandin 3 series), the anti-inflammatory chemicals that work as local hormones in the human body. Numerous studies show that EFAs have positive results in the treatment of many chronic diseases including eczema, itchy skin, acne, psoriasis, lupus and ulcerative colitis.

Arthritis

Key fatty acids found in hemp seed oil provide long-term support and maintenance of arthritic conditions, including rheumatoid athritis.

Metabolism + Nerve Function

The omega-3 fatty acids help nerve cells communicate with each other, which is an essential step in maintaining good mental health. EFAs have been shown to work with oxygen and enhance electron transport, key activities in energy output within the cell as well as enhance nerve cell insulation.

Skin Health

Hemp seed oil provides EFAs necessary for maintaining health and flexible skin cell membranes as well as exerting anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

Immunity

EFAs enhance immune function, speed up the rate of immune reactions, help to re-establish population control over intestinal bacteria and improve cellular energy for removing waster materials.

Physical Performance

Omega-3 fatty acids help support the cardiovascular system during exercise and also reduce the negative effect of intense exercise on the immune system.

The hemp is grown organically & processed without chemicals & under 45 degrees Celsius. Organic certification will be applied for at some time in the future.

We now have two blends of hemp oil available:

Mild - very sweet & mild

and

Tasty - This oil has a stronger nuttier flavour.

Our pollen is export quality and harvested from native flowers in the pristine forests of the South Island of nuclear-free New Zealand and dried slowly at low temperature to preserve all the goodness of the pollen.

The pollen is not certified organic as you cannot confine the bees to one particular area but is as organic as they can be. The bee keepers are third generation bee keepers with their fathers still involved helping them in their family business. They have a very strict high standard they adhere to and only bee pollen is processed on-site in an extremely clean environment.

Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health

This straightforward and exceptional guide presents the basic steps needed to regain excellent health. Also offered are 150 simple and delicious recipes to make a transition diet all that easier. Your health depends on an alkaline environment created by eating foods such as tomatoes, avocados and green vegetables together with smaller portions of mildly acidic foods in an optimum 80/20 balance. Such an approach has been proven to be of life-changing benefit no matter what is your age, gender, or state of health.

The pH Miracle is not just another viewpoint on what is healthy living. Instead it is a major work showing why it is critical that we alkalize our bodies and how you can begin to achieve this.

The revolutionary, proven diet program empowers readers to take control of their health . Forget counting calories, fat grams, and cholesterol. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels. The single most important health measurement is the pH level in the blood. THE pH MIRACLE unlocks the surprisingly crucial role pH balance plays in weight loss. For example, if the blood becomes overly acidic from eating too much of the wrong foods--wheat, meat, and cheese - it can lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more. The Youngs' proven program explains which foods to eat, which to avoid, and which supplements can help on the way towards optimal health and weight loss. In just weeks, readers will find they have more energy and will have shed pounds and inches. Also sprinkled throughout the book are short testimonials of people who were able to reverse cancer, improve their digestion, and lower their cholesterol by following these recommendations.

Chapter 1

    A new day is dawning. A day of truly holistic health, vitality, and well-being. A time of energizing our very cells, maximizing the life force of our bodies. An era of naturally lean and strong physiques! The pH Miracle is your key to letting that light into your life. It first helps you understand the revolutionary science I (Rob) call The New Biology, then explains the practical ways to change your diet and unleash the full power of your body to heal itself.

    In truth, the light came over the horizon more than a hundred years ago. But the radical work of some great pioneering scientists has been overlooked by a mainstream medical model so deeply involved with its own myths that it was blind to larger truths. Until now. Now we're going to peel off the blinders and look at an entirely new model of human health—and disease. Working from decades of exhaustive research - my own as well as the work of those early (ignored) pioneers — we'll discover the basic pathways to illness and wellness. You'll get the science, of course, but also the practical applications that will allow you to put the science to work for you.

     It's all about balance. The universe operates by keeping opposites in balance, and the universe contained within your body is no exception. When imbalance occurs, we get the signs of disease: low energy, fatigue, poor digestion, excess weight, foggy thinking, aches and pains, as well as major disorders. The pH Miracle is about reclaiming balance (health): energy, mental clarity, smooth operation of all body systems, clear, bright eyes and skin, and a lean, trim body. With the program in this book, all that will be yours within weeks.

     All you have to do is take a look around you to see that most people with our modern lifestyles are suffering from imbalance. They are obese. Tired. Prematurely aging. Perhaps you are too. Chances are at least one person you love is suffering from one of the top three killers in the United States — heart disease, cancer, or diabetes. When I ask the audience at one of my lectures how many of them have a family member with one of these big bad three, 70 to 80 percent raise their hands. In fact, half of us will die from heart disease or diabetes. A third will die from cancer.

     If you're like most people in our culture, at this point you're thinking, Well, you have to die of something. We've forgotten that it is natural to die — and to live — healthy! In fact, it is your birthright to live healthy, right up until the day you die. Making that vision a reality is the great gift of this program. And believe me, it has nothing to do with mapping the human genome, cutting-edge medical technologies, or even more powerful — and dangerous — pharmaceuticals. The good news is, the answer is much, much simpler than all that. And available right here and now. Today.

    The obvious clue is right there in the top three killers (cancer, heart disease, and diabetes). All are directly linked to diet. In fact, eight of the top ten causes of death in America today are (not to mention that diet is obviously the cause of the obesity of 60 percent of Americans). Eating the proper foods and getting the best nutrients, in balance, will help you avoid all that—along with the misery and poor quality of life that so often precede death, sometimes by decades. The simple secrets to finding the right combinations are what The pH Miracle is all about.

    Even mainstream medicine agrees: "Foods contain nutrients essential for normal metabolic function, and when problems arise, they result from imbalances in nutrient intake and from harmful interaction with other factors. For ... adult Americans who do not smoke and do not drink excessively, one personal choice seems to influence long-term health prospects more than any other — What We Eat" (from the 1988 "Surgeon General's Report on Health and Nutrition": Emphasis added).

    Since that landmark report from C. Everett Koop (and even before, depending on the circles you run in), Americans have been following one diet craze after another not only in an attempt to drop the excess baggage most of us are carrying around but also as a way to find our way back to good health. The result? We (as a country) are fatter than ever. And we're certainly no healthier.

    The problem is that while diet is the key not only to slimness but also to overall health and well-being, it has to be a diet that properly balances our body chemistry. But each and every one of the diets Americans have tried—including not just the "average American diet" but also such supposedly healthful regimens as low-fat diets, the food pyramid, and vegetarianism — create wildly imbalanced body chemistry. Even if one way of eating does get rid of extra pounds (usually temporarily) or lower cholesterol levels or lessen digestive trouble for some people, it does not fulfill the promise of simple good health. We're so used to our modern medical machinery, in fact, that good health seems anything but simple. I'm here to tell you: It is simple.

    Forget cholesterol counts. Forget calories and fat grams. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, hormone levels, or any of the other markers of health you're used to at the doctor's office. It turns out that the single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues—how acidic or alkaline it is. Different areas of the body have different ideal pH levels, but blood pH is the most telling of all. Just as your body temperature is rigidly regulated, the blood must be kept in a very narrow pH range—mildly basic or alkaline. The body will go to great lengths to preserve that, including wreaking havoc on other tissues or systems.

    The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. The entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment. Chronic over acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In other words, over acidity interferes with life itself. It is (as we'll see in more detail in the next chapter) at the root of all sickness and disease.

    If that's not enough to get you interested in balancing your body pH naturally, nondestructively, keep this in mind: Over acidity is also what's keeping you fat (more about that later).

    The goal, then — and what this program allows you to do — is to create the proper alkaline balance within your body. The way to do that is by eating the proper balance of alkaline and acid foods. That means 80 percent of your diet must be alkalizing foods, like green vegetables. (That percentage will go down somewhat once you've successfully rebalanced yourself.) That leaves much smaller portions of acid foods (such as meat and grains) on our plates. In addition, carefully chosen, high-quality supplements will help you achieve and maintain pH balance. You'll learn more about all this in detail in later chapters.

    That's it. That's all there is to it. Get at least three-quarters of your plate covered with alkalizing food, use the supplements as explained in The pH Miracle, and you'll be good to go.

    The following chapters get into the details of why, and the remainder of the book shows you specifically what and how. You'll get the benefit of my own exhaustive research and the work of the great minds that have gone this road before me, and you'll also get Shelley's real-life, practical expertise in how to make all this happen for you.

    Bottom line: This program will bring you increased quality and quantity of life. I guarantee you'll see immediate improvement. Your energy will increase, you'll find new mental clarity and powers of concentration, you'll build strength and stamina, and you'll lose excess body fat while increasing muscle mass. You'll have bright eyes and clear skin. You'll look better. You'll improve your athletic performance. Your entire body will function more efficiently. Whatever health challenges you've been facing will improve and most likely evaporate altogether. In short, you'll regain all the effortless energy and wellness you thought was lost with your childhood. With the healing, wholeness, and rejuvenation that this program brings, you'll experience, possibly for the first time in your life, vibrant personal health.

    Over and over again, we've witnessed joy, relief, and renewed peace of mind in those who have turned a serious or chronic illness around, those who lost weight they had been battling for years, those whose cholesterol levels dropped, skin cleared up, itching stopped, energy returned. I've seen people who no longer required insulin injections for their diabetes. People whose aches and pains disappeared. Even people who had been diagnosed with cancer whose tumors vanished and who were pronounced cancer free. We hear frequently from people who haven't been able to work for months or years who are returning to work, people whose allergies are letting up, people whose infections clear. People who are well, whole, and energetic again. People like Sharon and her husband. I'll let her tell their story:

    I was up to a record 192 pounds. I was depressed and tired and had attempted almost every diet known to humankind. I would lose weight and then gain it right back when I returned to my old eating habits. I became more and more discouraged. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired—and fat! I knew it was time to make some major lifestyle changes.

    So, once again I stepped onto the diet roller coaster by going to a local weight loss organization. It worked for the first few months. I lost thirty-two pounds, traded in my diet sodas for water, and started to exercise. I thought I might really have the problem licked this time.

    At this same time, my husband applied for a life insurance policy. The findings of the company's physical exam scared us to death. His cholesterol was practically off the charts at 340. He had fatty growths in his shoulder. He was at his heaviest ever, too: 227 pounds. For someone who is five-nine, that's quite a load to carry around. The report made him out to be a walking time bomb. An accident waiting to happen. Just like me, he realized he needed to make some serious changes. But he was confused about what and how.

    Before he could take action, we moved into a new house and went on a vacation. I went back to my old eating habits, stopped exercising, and regained twenty of the thirty-two pounds I had lost. When things settled down again and we realized we had to take action, that's when The pH Miracle came into our lives.

    We shared the same first thought: How on earth could we change our lifestyle so drastically? And the same second thought: We had to try. That night we committed to the program—and immediately headed over to a favorite local restaurant to pig out on our last barbecued pork ribs and mud pie. The next morning we changed our diets— and changed our lives. We've never looked back.

    My husband's cholesterol dropped to 242 in six weeks, and is now under 200. He had been experiencing arthritis in the hips and had been thinking about surgery. But the pain has disappeared! For the first time in my life, I'm not depressed. I'm no longer a compulsive eater; no longer do I eat until I get sick—and then eat some more. I'm not a slave to my addiction to sugar and breads. Now the foods I crave are avocados and soybeans. We both would still like to lose a few more pounds, but we don't worry about it anymore. We know our bodies will reach an optimum weight. And we'll never regain it because we no longer crave the foods that made us sick, tired, and fat in the first place.

    It turns out the weight loss is almost a side benefit. What we've really gotten out of this is feeling better. Our minds and bodies are stronger. We no longer feel sick and tired all the time. Even our relationship has benefited. We have a more fulfilling life. We can more fully enjoy the best things in life—mainly, our kids.

    Speaking of our kids, we are now gradually working them into the program, too. They've been raised on fast food and pizza, candy bars and soda pop. And they've been addicted to sugar, bread, and meat—and been tired, obese, and depressed as a result, just like so much of their generation. Who would have thought they would ever be drinking green vegetable juice for breakfast? We feed them healthy meals, and they take supplements as well. They still have some sugar now and then, but we know this is not an overnight process. The whole family is headed in the right direction.

    Robert Louis Stevenson wrote: "There will come a time when we will sit down to the banquet of our consequences."
    We were. And we are. I like this way much better.

    Besides the huge volume of tales like this one — which I'll share more of throughout the book — I've seen the scientific proof of such transformation with my own eyes, though nothing is more persuasive than the radical changes in people's everyday lives. I've observed thousands of blood samples, including pH levels, from people all over the world, and seen the transformation that occurs — right down to the individual cells—when people change the way they eat.

    HOW WE CAME TO EAT THIS WAY

    All this healing occurs because people are willing to take responsibility for their own health and make the necessary changes. That was a mission Shelley and I were on for ourselves starting over twenty years ago. But it took quite a while to realize that what seemed in popular thought to be optimal was still leaving us tired, seemingly prone to every passing cold, and just not able to get the very best out of life. Eventually, through trial and error—experimenting on ourselves—we developed The pH Miracle program, and found, finally, the way to get fully, permanently, holistically healthy-physically prepared to live life to its fullest.

    We had always been active, and on the lookout for ways to improve our health. By 1980, we were on what we thought was an ideal strictly vegetarian regime-mostly complex carbohydrates, along with some simple carbs (sugars), proteins, and fats. We were conforming to what seemed to be the best possible nutrition for our bodies and raised our children this way.

    We ate the best of all foods sold in our favorite health food stores. Yet still we felt that afternoon fatigue. Our athletic endurance seemed to have plateaued, and we weren't getting any further improvements. We didn't have the strength and stamina we wanted. We were slowly but surely getting one common sign of aging after another. And it all seemed to be getting worse as we grew older.

    What we didn't know then was what havoc all this was wreaking on our body chemistry, how it dangerously acidified our bodies, inviting all the disastrous consequences explained in upcoming chapters. Thank goodness the whole family had stayed generally healthy, but with what we know now we can see we were lucky. We were setting ourselves up for a lot of potential trouble.

    It took a long time to realize what was going on—and what we could do about it. When we did figure it all out, what a dramatic difference! For one thing, though neither of us was overweight to begin with, we both shed pounds. I lost about twenty pounds — and four inches around my waist. Shelley dropped about fifteen pounds, and is now the same size she was in high school (nine). More important, we felt much better. Not only that, but I also could see astounding changes in our blood, including the pH levels. One good thing about the roughly fourteen-year journey we went through in developing this program was that it gave me time to come to some new (to me) laboratory techniques with which I could chart our progress (which I'll describe more fully later in the book).

    Since we were essentially healthy to start out with, I was eager to test the effects of the dietary changes we were making on people facing serious health challenges, such as diabetes, cancer, obesity, heart disease, lupus, gout, and arthritis. Sure enough, in my studies I could see the same sweeping improvements in their blood. They all reported feeling better and losing weight. And in many cases, even the dire conditions healed or disappeared! Witnessing these amazing results, I knew we'd stumbled upon more than a way of eating that just happened to be right for us and our family. We'd found something we wanted to share.

    We've been fully on The pH Miracle diet for more than five years now, and there's no doubt in our minds: We'll never go back. We've gained too much we'd never want to give up. Even as we get older, we keep feeling better. And we know we're protecting ourselves from the ravages of the diseases that claim so many of our fellow Americans. We've found a way to ensure that we'll be there for each other, for our work, and most of all, for our children, over the long haul. And able to truly enjoy every minute of it.

    Good health should be second nature to us, but for many people it seems very difficult to maintain. The pH Miracle changes that forever. It will empower you to regain what is rightfully yours, encourage you to take responsibility for your own well-being, and restore the great gift of wellness to you.

    I know, there are lots of formulas out there for getting well. And many of them have good track records and positive reputations. Often, that's because they deal partially (perhaps unknowingly) with what you're going to learn here. Also, you can get a lot better without getting completely well, so you might think the job is done without ever reaping the greatest rewards. Once you experience the full, vibrant wellness that comes with this basic change to your diet, you'll know just how tremendous the difference can be. So we invite you to begin this journey and experience the results for yourself. Awaken to the light of a new day!

By Elysa Markowitz

A full colour recipe book with 150 Living Food Recipes through the Green Power/Green Life/Green Star/Solo Star Juicer/Z Star Juicer.

For those who own a Green Power/Green Life/Green Star/Solo Star juicer, a juicer that allows one to make not only juice, but soups, crackers, pates, and pies, this book is a gem. From her opening chapter, Getting Ready to Prepare the Food to her excellent section on Food Resources, Elysa is the ultimate guide. If you've just purchaseed or about to purchase one, this book is a must. The author demonstrates her expertise by offering step-by-step instructions in the use of this equipment. She also shows how one can enjoy versatility in food preparation with this single kitchen appliance.

This creative author does not limit her abilities to juices alone. Her book has many original recipes that beckon, such as her hearty entrees. Whata Walnut Loaf, Sprouted Nori Rolls, and Sunny Broccoli-Carrot Pate. Her desserts are equally elegant with Picky Pecan Pie, Carob Mint Pie and Key Lime Parfait.

What amazed us is that with her unbridled creativity, Elysa has adapted this machine's abilities to encompass the preparation of every course a breakfast, lunch, or dinner could require.

Looking through the pages, we were dazzled by the gorgeous photography, layout design, and food styling displayed on nearly every page. Many of the photos zoom in to show fruits or vegetables that are larger than life. The colors are brilliant and display Elysa's finished dish to perfection. Our only disappointment with the book is that it lacked a standard index so necessary for quickly locating a recipe by name. Living With Green Power is an outstanding book that ought to be a companion to the Green Power/Green Life/Green Star/Solo Star juicer.

We highly recommend this book to everyone buying a Green Star & Solo Star juicer.

Notes From Sergei and Valya

Sergei:
Dear children, adolescents, and adults, I wish there were some way that I could get this message out to every single one of you. A message that would touch your lives and have you see that happiness is not sold in little baggies or a 40 oz. glass bottle. I wish that there were some way to how you, my own generation, that we can all be happy and free without drugs. I wish I could stop you from hurting your body and make you see how much you will regret it later in life.

Most of all I wish that I could unite all of you and show you that every single one of you is beautiful and miraculous and that life would not be the same without you. Unfortunately, that is impossible, because the only way of teaching is actually not teaching at all! The only way I can get others to follow is by being a good example and sharing my story when asked. The words of even the wisest man are worth nothing if no one wants to hear them!

This is my story:
Before I ate raw food, I always wanted to be cool. I wore baggy pants with trendy names and had flashy skateboards and other toys, but for some reason I wasn't cool. The harder I tried, the less cool I was. When I started eating raw food, I hid it from my peers because I thought I would be even more un-cool. Later on,  however, I found out that in their eyes eating raw food actually made me pretty cool. In fact, I noticed that a person doesn't even have to be way different to be cool. All one needs in order to be cool is sincerity. Eating healthier made me more open. I stopped caring what people said and thought about me. I became more sincere and started speaking openly. People started noticing my sincerity and as a result I made new friends. When we are sincere, people gravitate toward us.

Are you or your children worried that by eating raw food you'll lose some friends? You might lose some friends but I promise you, you'll gain three times as many new, quality friends. If you are a raw fooder it is best if you didn't seclude yourself from the rest of the world and only hang out with raw fooders. You don't have to try to convert everybody to your "raw-legion." In fact, it would be un-cool for you to say, "Stop eating that crap; that pizza's going to kill you." If you did that, you wouldn't have any friends at all! I like what Howard F. Lyman, the author of the best-selling book Mad Cowboy says, "Don't tell people what you are doing unless they ask, and when they ask, you have thirty seconds to respond. That's about how long their attention lasts. If they want to know more they will research on their own or ask more."

Occasionally, people make fun of me for eating raw food, but they're not usually too hard-core. They never say anything like, "You're stupid." They rather make fun of me gently, like, "Have some milk; oh, I forgot you can't have that cause you're crazy." I just respond with, "Yeah, I am crazy, a crazy raw fooder that is! I only eat fruit," When they hear how I start  making fun of myself, they lose interest. In Ashland, people know me as the fruit boy, I just laugh with them. I'm not afraid to make fun of myself! Because I am healthy and happy, and I don't care what people think. It's only thoughts.

Valya:
I know that I would not be the same person I am today without changing my diet. Before going on raw foods, I was failing every subject in third grade except art. I couldn't read, so naturally I couldn't write. Learning geography was out of the question; I was quite happy in Denver Colorado. History? Yeah, right. That would really come in handy. Who cares about a bunch of dead guys? I was under the impression that THEY were going to teach me without my having to do anything. I had a hard time concentrating and could not remember anything. Fact: to learn, one must have the ability to remember. My energy would bounce from so high that I would be racing through the house back and forth, to so low that I wouldn't have the energy to change the channel on the remote control.

Before I went on raw food, I had asthma. Like many other sicknesses, asthma is considered incurable. I had trouble breathing at night and could not sleep. Whenever I ran, I felt like I was suffocating. My nose was always clogged, and I was pale no matter how much time I spent outside. My health was getting worse. My favorite food were milk and cheese. (This could be the reason my asthma got so bad). I used to cut a two-inch thick slice of cheese, put it between some wonder bread, and eat it.  Sometimes I'd eat the cheese without the bread. My family would go through two gallons of milk a day. My mother bought six gallons of milk at a time so that it would last for a while. My father was capable of eating three chickens in one sitting. At the age of nine, Sergei could eat an extra-large pizza all by himself! As you can imagine, we were all overweight. The doctors discovered that Sergei had juvenile diabetes, my dad had hyper thyroid, and my mother had a bad heart condition.

Health, however, was far from being my biggest problem. I was unhappy. I tried to entertain myself with movies, restaurants, and theme parks, but pleasure could never fill my feeling empty inside. My life was slowly zipping by. Every day was just like the day before. I would often wonder where all the time went. It seemed rather fast, like
something was missing. I dreamed of adventure and doing exciting things, but it all seemed pretty hopeless. I was going to get held back in school. As soon as I went on raw food, I switched to home schooling and started learning about the things I wanted to learn about. My grades started going way up. Learning became exciting for me. I learned by following my curiosity. I found that I was full of questions. It felt like a curtain had been lifted. My brain was filled with a sharp clarity. I began to remember things so much more easily. My energy became balanced. I could sit down and study now. Reading became my favorite thing to do. I understood that I was the only one who could really teach me anything. I saw thousands of opportunities like doors in front of me and I became aware that I had to open them myself, no one could do that for me. I stopped expecting to grow up some far off day and suddenly knew what I wanted to do with my life. I realized that I already was the person I was going to be the rest of my life. My life had already begun!

Before I went on raw food I had hard time breathing, especially in spring. When my first "raw" spring came I was suddenly aware I could breath through my nose! Many of my friends had colds, runny noses, and allergies. I used to have all of those, and I had nothing! At that moment, I felt that all my suffering with food cravings was worth it. I realized that I wanted to eat raw foods for the rest of my life. After I changed my diet, I never had another asthma attack. I lost some weight and started running in the mornings with my brother. I even got to the point where I could whistle while running! Raw food has changed my life. It has made me a healthier person. When a person is healthy, it's easier to be happy. My life is definitely easier than it would have been if I had not changed my diet. I don't ever need to worry about being sick with any of the thousands of diseases, viruses, or infections. I do not need braces, glasses, or Ritalin. I don't have headaches, toothaches, earaches, colds, allergies, acne, parasites, ADD, (Attention Deficit Disorder) anorexia, or obesity. Sometimes I feel guilty that I'm not sick because I have nothing to relate with other teenagers about. My friends like to talk about their symptoms and I have nothing to say! Last week I went to the dentist. He was so surprised. He told me that I had some of the best teeth he had ever seen in a teenager.

Sergei:
Back when I was nine years old, my sister and I would talk to each other about the day we turned eighteen. This day would be a special day because on this day, we would stop eating raw food. We would dream about what kind of food we would break the diet with. Corndogs, pizza, nachos, and crab were just some of the foods we were going to order on that magical day. As the years went by this dream seemed less and less appetizing until one day when I forgot about thought altogether. I started noticing that food did not run my life as before. No longer did my whole existence revolve around it. Spending less time eating gave me more free time during the day. I began using this time for observing others and myself. I noticed how my mother, who worked sixteen-hour days, would have a huge pile of dishes waiting for her at the end of the day, or how my father, who some days did twelve massages in a row, would still have to wash the floor in the kitchen before he passed out. I observed how I felt when I just sat around watching TV while my parents worked and I pretended like I didn't notice. I still remember the day I made up my mind to wash the dishes for my mom and the floor for my dad. It was the first time in my life that I didn't try to get away with doing as little a possible. I turned on the radio to my favorite station, put on some gloves, and washed those dishes until I could see my reflection in them. The floors always seemed to me like a lot of hard and dirty work, but appeared to me surprisingly easy to do. The reward for me came when my parents, who were so used to washing the dishes and floor, came into the kitchen and found that everything was already done. It was like someone zapped them with a stun gun. It was such an incredible feeling that I decided to help them out more often. It was after that day that I had my first major revelation: I, Sergei Boutenko, enjoyed helping people! I felt good inside every time I helped someone, so I naturally started doing it more often. Once again, I learned how things in life are not always as they seem. When I avoided work and tried to get happiness from entertainment, I was unhappy. When I began working to help others, I was no longer as bored and became happy...

The Vegetarian Guide To Diet & Salad

Diet&Saladbk
  • Description

By Dr N W Walker

The fundamental purpose of eating is to replenish the cells and tissues in the body. This book is both a nutritional guide and a cookbook with a wide range of recipes for a balanced natural food diet, particularly relevant for vegetarians. The pitfalls of overindulgence in certain food elements, especially oil and sugar, have been well documented. Why not start eating today in a way that promotes increased health and healing of your body.

Norman Walker covers the effects of different foods and explains other topics such as food combining and colon therapy. He clearly explains the nutritional elements in food (enzymes, amino acids etc) and covers the effects that specific foods have on the human body.

Both a recipe book and nutritional guide, "The Vegetarian Guide to Diet and Salad" belongs in every kitchen.

"In order to regain and maintain the proper balance of health, most of the food we eat must contain live, vital organic elements. These elements are found in fresh raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds... The fact that for generations millions upon millions of people have lived and are living who have rarely if ever eaten anything but cooked foods does not prove that their being alive is the result of eating cooked foods. As a matter of fact, they are in a state of decadent existence which is confirmed by the toxic condition of their bodies. Else, why such a high rate of heart trouble, diabetes, cancer, emphysema, premature senility and premature deaths? " ~ Dr Norman Walker

 

Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Juices

  • Description

By Dr N W Walker

Deficiencies of certain minerals, salts and vitamins can cause many of the symptoms of illness. This book provides a complete guide to the use of fresh, raw juices for the effective treatment of 150 specific ailments. Each juice is listed and their beneficial elements explained.

If you're planning on juicing why not make sure you're drinking the most effective juice for your body today?

"You and you alone are responsible for the result of how you nourish your body. The LIFE in your food is what counts. Your body is composed of billions of microscopic cells. Your very existence depends on them. They need nourishment, live, active nourishment. It depends on you, and on you alone, whether the food you eat results in nutrition or malnutrition!"  ~ Dr Norman Walker

"Fruit juices are the cleansers of the human system. . . . Vegetable juices are the builders and regenerators of the body. They contain all the amino acids, minerals, salts, enzymes, and vitamins needed by the human body, provided that they are used fresh, raw, and without preservatives, and that they have been properly extracted from the vegetables." ~ Dr Norman Walker

A must have for any serious juicer.

The Key to 100% Raw Vegan Longevity

Have you been reluctant to eat 100% raw because you are afraid of doing it wrong?

It is true that many long-term raw vegans suffer from deficiencies, health and dental complications. Most Raw Pioneers are dying between the ages of 80 and 93. If the raw diet is so amazing, why aren't we living decades longer than cooked food eaters?

Raw Success is the key to longevity on a 100% raw vegan diet. With information that has never before been introduced, these new concepts mark a turning point for the raw lifestyle!

# Understand how to succeed with a 100% raw food lifestyle
# Find your Optimal Raw Diet: not too extreme, not too lax – just right for you
# Protect yourself from the detrimental effects of the environment

The information revealed in Raw Success will open your eyes wide to the truth.

It is my intention that this book serves as a complete guide to your Raw Success. Thus, for those just beginning, I have included the popular article, How to Go Raw, which outlines steps for transitioning to a raw lifestyle. My hope is that these pages add years of vital living for the person new to raw, as well as for the Raw Food Pioneers that have been on this journey for many decades.

About the Authour

Matt Monarch is a 100% Raw; his diet consists of only raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds.

After five years of eating a 100% raw food diet, Matt was inspired to write a book called Raw Spirit. He wanted to share information that he thought needed to be out there. Currently, Matt lives in Ojai, California.  

Raw Spirit

  • Description

By Matt Monarch

What the Raw Food Advocates Don't Preach

When I first read about becoming a Raw Foodist, I couldn’t wait to start. And I didn’t. Overnight I abandoned my bachelor’s diet of burgers, Subways, chicken patties, and burritos for raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. I couldn’t wait to experience increased energy, glowing physical perfection, and a longer healthier life.

After I took the big leap, many unexpected changes started happening; things I hadn’t read about like the negative physical side effects and the incredible spiritual dimension of being Raw. Within these pages are details that raw food advocates don’t preach and have not written about. In honest detail, Raw Spirit prepares you for the world you could be walking into if you choose to become Raw, or if you are already.

The second half of Raw Spirit is an extensive interview with Dr. Fred Bisci, PhD, 40 year raw food pioneer, and Master Nutritionist. Included is Dr. Bisci’s Intermediate Healing Diet, a protocol similar to what he gives clients who want to heal from dis-ease. Although I feel 100% Raw is the optimal diet for the human body if done correctly, it may not be for you. This intermediate diet, containing some cooked foods, can be adopted as your daily diet for health and healing; or it can be used to transition safely and easily to your new Raw Lifestyle.

Raw Spirit has much to offer:

Those who want to heal through diet;
Those who want to stay Raw, but keep falling back into cooked food;
Those who are Raw and may run into future problems;
Those who are Raw and feeling confused and rejected;
Those looking into Raw. What they can expect.

Interview with Dr. Fred Bisci

Here are the questions that Dr. Fred Bisci answers in this book, Raw Spirit.

Not many people understand what happens to their body on a cellular level when they improve their diet. Do you feel that understanding this concept would result in much better health amongst the Raw Food community?

Can you talk a little about how someone can become cleaner on a cellular level?

Why is it bad to go back and forth from a Raw Food Diet to a cooked food diet?

Why is it necessary to leave something out of our diet completely if we want to heal? Why can't we cheat just a little bit every once in a while?

What is the order of food groups that one should leave out of their diet from first to last?

I mention in this book that a raw food eater is more sensitive to polluted air than a cooked food eater. Do you feel your health is suffering because you are a Raw Foodist living in NY air pollution?

Why do you think Dr. Norman Walker lived to be such an old age?

What kinds of problems can someone run into who eats too much fruit?

How much fruit is too much?

You have mentioned that long term raw food eaters can run into problems if given pharmaceutical or intravenous drugs. Why is this?

You have been on a raw diet for over four decades. Have you ever encountered a problem with medical drugs?

Do you feel that raw food eaters should be raising their newborn babies Raw?

I don't know anyone that is a bigger animal lover then you. How do you recommend someone raise his or her pet?

How do you feel about the use of alcohol?

How do you feel about the use of marijuana?

Do you feel that colonics are important?

Do you feel that one needs to do colonics to be successful on a raw food diet?

I have talked to you about how I have had gas and waste problems ever since I became Raw. Is this normal?

Even when I am eating really well, feeling emotionally okay, and have been eliminating fine, inevitably after two weeks, gas and waste build up in my system and I need to do a colonic.

I do colonics a couple times per month. Is it bad to do it this many times?

Is it possible to do too many colonics?

How do you feel about Bernard Jensen's psyllium and bentonite cleanse?

After I did the psyllium bentonite cleanse I started to experience the energy fields that I mention in this book for the first time. Can you comment on that?

How do you feel about the aluminum content in bentonite clay, one of the major ingredients of Bernard Jensen's cleanse?

Do you think this Bernard Jensen's cleanse would drastically improve someone's health and level of cleanliness?

When I was eating cooked foods, I ate everything and anything and never had any noticeable digestive problems. Why, now that I'm Raw, must I contend with annoying digestive upsets (gas) whenever I eat bad food combinations?

Some people say that you shouldn't mix too many types of fats at one meal. How do you feel about that?

What are your thoughts on Hyperbaric Medicine?

Why do you feel that raw food eaters seem to be dying at the same age as cooked food eaters?

Why are those that have been eating a raw diet for many decades at more risk of running into serious complications compared to others?

Why are eating nuts so important for a raw food eater in the long run?

You have been on a Raw Diet for 40 years. It would be very hard for you to go back to eating foods that are not raw. If you could do it all over again, would you add any other foods into your diet?

How about adding raw goat's milk or raw cheese to your diet?

How old do you think someone could live in this day and age if they committed to an optimal Raw Diet?

Do you feel that eating once a day is a big key for longevity?

Do you feel that systematically under eating is a big key in longevity?

Do you feel that exercise is key to longevity?

Do you think that drinking vegetable juice is necessary to succeed on a Raw Diet?

Does the body of a raw food eater handle stress better?

Do you believe that Breatharianism is possible?

Do you feel that supplements are necessary for a raw food eater?

I have heard you say that many spiritual things happen to the person that becomes a 100% raw food eater. Can you talk about any of those spiritual experiences?

What has a Raw Diet done to your brain (memory)?

Do you feel that men should conserve their sperm?

Can someone eliminate all of his or her Sexual Transmitted Diseasess (STD's) on a raw food diet?

Is a raw food diet the best way to deal with degenerative diseases?

What is your diet like? How many times a day do you normally eat?

Green For Life Book (also available in Audio Book)

  • Description

Green For Life

By Victoria Boutenko
Paperback, 186 pages
Publication date: 1 January 2006

Green For Life was selected as finalist for the Prestigious 2006 Independent Book Publishers Awards!

Many people know that we should eat more greens, but rarely do any of us truly enjoy our kale or wheatgrass. For the first time in history a remarkably enjoyable way of consuming the necessary amount of greens has been created by blending the greens with fruit. From this smoothie, the body can absorb the essential nutrients much more efficiently. Anyone can prepare tasty green smoothies quickly in their own kitchen, with their own choice of ingredients. With green smoothies people gain more control of their own health.

This book is written in a clear style, illustrated with anecdotes, diagrams and pictures. The results of the Roseburg study conducted by Victoria and Dr Fieber, reveal the unique healing potential of green smoothies. Boutenko was originally looking for a way to improve the raw food diet - a diet based on fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and avocados. While this eating regiment helped her family's health tremendously, Boutenko couldn't help but notice something was missing. After extensive research, she came to the conclusion that without a sufficient amount of greens one cannot reach optimal health.

Greens make our body more alkaline, add fiber, and provide a wide spectrum of prime nutrients. Chlorophyll effectively aids in the healing of many human ailments. Green for Life explains why eating more green leafy vegetables can help normalize the acidity level in the stomach. Greens can give us so much energy we will actually require less sleep.

Green for Life includes 23 delicious smoothie recipes with ingredients like romaine, strawberries, and bananas, to get you started on drinking your way to a healthier life. Plus, Boutenko shares the testimonies of her research subjects who drank 1 quart of her green smoothie every day with astonishing results.

Reviews

“In Green for Life, Victoria Boutenko focuses on the benefits of greens and offers 45 of her favorite green smoothie recipes.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Green for Life is a revolutionary but simple idea whose time has come. It is a clear inspiration and great resource to readers who desire to lead healthier lives.”
—Midwest Book Review

“In more than thirty-five years of practice as a psychiatrist affiliated with the Harvard Medical School, I have learned one thing very well: Human behavior is very hard to change. Now Victoria Boutenko is persuading me otherwise. … Thirty days of green smoothies will change how you feel, and how you feel about yourself. That’s no small achievement for one small book.”
—A. William Menzin, MD, Harvard Medical School, from the foreword

“Victoria Boutenko’s clear, simple, masterful concept is so valuable, so powerful—we can expect to see and feel the world of health rocked to its foundations within the decade.”
—Thomas C. Chavez, homeopath and author of Body Electronics

“Victoria, you did it again! I love your new book. It will bring health to millions, reduce future risks of degenerative diseases for new generations, and make life easier for all of us now. A must read!”
—Dr. Ruza Bodganovich, internationally renowned lecturer and author of The Cure is in the Cause

“Raw food expert Victoria Boutenko wants you to eat more leafy greens, but she knows chomping on big bunches of them can be difficult. So, in the second edition of her book Green for Life, originally published in 2005, she instead recommends blending kale, spinach, chard, and the like with different fruits and vegetables and drinking a quart of the resulting green smoothie every day... Already own the book? The new version includes nutritional information on Boutenko's favorite edible weeds (stinging nettles, dandelions, lambsquarters); testimonials from smoothie converts, who marvel at how their various ailments disappear after going green; and some 20 additional recipes for smoothies and puddings, which Boutenko perfected over six years of experimentation.”
—Vegetarian Times

“Green for Life is the book that makes the case, the proof, if you will, that green smoothies are the missing link in human nutrition… After you read the science and the amazing testimonials, you'll be itching to make your first smoothie… Few books are as ‘must-have’ as this one… 10+ out of 10.”
—The Raw Mocha Angel
 
“Green for Life is a book of hope and encouragement, as it shares a simple and viable way to revitalize your life.”
—Lily of the Valley

Our Camu Camu is 100% pure Certified Organic, different to the previous product we were selling in that it now contains no manioc root powder. We’re happy to report that our Camu Camu is no longer spray dried, and is now 100% organic Camu Camu pulp, dehydrated at low temperatures. This results in a Vitamin C percentage of over 12%: that’s 30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange. What’s more, since our Camu Camu is a whole food in its full-spectrum natural form, your body can absorb the nutrients contained within much more effectively than it will absorb any synthetic supplement.

Camu Camu (Mycaria Dubia) is a bushy tree that grows in black water rivers, especially along abandoned watercourses known as cochas. Each year, the river floods, bringing nutrients to the soil and avoiding the depletion associated with typical farming methods; these are ecosystems of great social and economic importance to the Amazon jungle in Peru. Growing in these swampy areas, it takes years for the tree to become mature enough to bear fruit. The fruit of the tree is approximately 2 cms in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp.

Camu Camu is traditionally made into a juice by people of the rainforest to support the immune system, ward off viral infections, and help maintain optimal health, especially under conditions of stress and anxiety, which tend to deplete the immune system. It also contains bioflavonoids, the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, plus considerable quantities of thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. Camu Camu helps to promote healthy gums, eyes, and skin and supports the functions of the brain (nervous system) and heart (circulatory system).

Traditionally, native medicine practitioners and herbalists have recommended Camu Camu for:

  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Improving symptoms of herpes infections, including mouth blisters, genital blisters, shingles blisters and other viral infections
  • Promoting energy and vitality of people with chronic immune dysfunction
  • Strengthening the nervous system
  • Supporting healthy levels of white blood cell formation
  • Detoxifying the body, especially the liver
  • Promoting health of upper respiratory organs, including lungs, sinuses, nasal passages
  • Promoting a healthy heart and circulatory system

Pharmacological Information

The Camu Camu fruit has a surprising range of medicinal effects. In joint studies with IIAP, Sandoval (2000) of Albany University has demonstrated that Camu Camu flesh has a great antioxidant power, and it inhibits the radical DPPH (1,1-diphenil-2-picrilhydrazil), surpassing that of ascorbic acid and trolox (water soluble analog of vitamin C).

Some of the extraordinary medicinal properties of this Amazon rain forest fruit are described by Gary Null, Ph.D., a nationally known nutritionist and researcher. In discussing the holistic treatment of depression he lists 19 plants containing chemical compounds with antidepressant properties. In order of potency, Camu Camu is listed second in effectiveness. Some have been able to gradually wean themselves off of their anti-depression prescription medication (such as Zoloft and Prozac) under medical supervision and substitute Camu Camu powder with no relapse into depression. Although the amount taken varies for different people, some have taken, on an empty stomach, 1/2 teaspoon of Camu Camu powder in a glass of water four times daily. Others have taken one tsp. either once or twice daily. One alternative health care provider in New York City has had twenty patients on Zoloft and Prozac gradually wean themselves off these medications while taking camu camu and they have succeeded in avoiding depression. Good results have also been noted for patients who are anxious, talkative, and those with panic attacks.

Camu Camu has been part of an effective protocol for a 14 year old boy who was hospitalized for 15 months at the age of eight for suicidal depression. This boy also has learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.). His psychiatrists put him on 40 mg. of Prozac, 100 mg. of Ritalin, as well as Clomadine and Imiprimine, which he remained on for years, keeping him in a barely functional, drugged state. Working with an alternative medical professional, his mother withdrew him gradually from these drugs and began a protocol which included Ginkgo Biloba, high amounts of Vitamin C and B vitamins. In the last few months she has added two teaspoons of Camu Camu (divided dose on empty stomach with water) and one capsule a day (500 mg.) of Maca to his protocol. She reports that since adding these two herbs her son's immune function has improved--he gets sick less often, his mood is better - "it has smoothed him out" - and the combination of these two herbs have increased his ability to focus.

Camu Camu is at the top of Null's list of plants with medicinal effectiveness against the herpes virus. All forms of the herpes virus lie dormant at the base of the spine and become active when the immune system is stressed beyond its ability to respond effectively against pathenogens. Common stressors include emotional upsets, other illnesses, prescription drugs, insufficient rest, poor diet, menstrual periods, vaginal yeast infections, and too much sunlight on the skin. Genital herpes is usually transmitted sexually. The principal anti-viral pharmaceutical medicine is acyclovir, which has unpleasant and even toxic side effects. The herpes virus takes a number of different forms and is widespread today as a public health problem in the United States. More than 50% of the U.S. population gets cold sores, which is the result of the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1). The Epstein-Barr virus is a common form of the herpes virus which may linger in the body for years, raising the total viral load which the body must combat. Yet another form of the herpes virus is genital herpes which is caused by the herpes simplex virus 2. In total, more than 80% of the U.S. population suffers from some kind of herpes infection. Null lists 19 plants which contain anti-herpetic phyto-chemicals. Camu Camu is listed as the most potent.

Serving Suggestions:  Many people have stopped using large dosages of synthetic Vitamin C because they find that just 1 to 2 grams (1 tspn) of camu camu powder is energizing, mood-lifting and highly effective in strengthening the immune system. It has the additional benefit of being non-irritating to sensitive stomachs and bladders.  Add to water, juices, smoothies, cereals, desserts, bars, yoghurt & fruit for a tangy citrus flavour.

In Brazil, Camu Camu is being promoted as a product that untangles and strengthens hair, and protects it from external damage, adding to its shine and vitality. Camu Camu is being used in a new line of cosmetics specially recommended for damaged and dull hair that include shampoos, conditioners, hair masques, hair renewal that add body and shine to hair.

 

Conditions for storage: Keep in a fresh, dry place. Protect from light.

Tropical fruit camu-camu (Myrciaria dubia) has anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Oxidative stress as well as inflammation plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Although, various anti-oxidative dietary supplements have been evaluated for their ability to prevent atherosclerosis, no effective ones have been determined at present. "Camu-camu" (Myrciaria dubia) is an Amazonian fruit that offers high vitamin C content. However, its anti-oxidative property has not been evaluated in vivo in humans.

METHODS:

To assess the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties of camu-camu in humans, 20 male smoking volunteers, considered to have an accelerated oxidative stress state, were recruited and randomly assigned to take daily 70 ml of 100% camu-camu juice, corresponding to 1050 mg of vitamin C (camu-camu group; n=10) or 1050 mg of vitamin C tablets (vitamin C group; n=10) for 7 days.

RESULTS:

After 7 days, oxidative stress markers such as the levels of urinary 8-hydroxy-deoxyguanosine (P<0.05) and total reactive oxygen species (P<0.01) and inflammatory markers such as serum levels of high sensitivity C reactive protein (P<0.05), interleukin (IL)-6 (P<0.05), and IL-8 (P<0.01) decreased significantly in the camu-camu group, while there was no change in the vitamin C group.

CONCLUSIONS:

Our results suggest that camu-camu juice may have powerful anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, compared to vitamin C tablets containing equivalent vitamin C content. These effects may be due to the existence of unknown anti-oxidant substances besides vitamin C or unknown substances modulating in vivo vitamin C kinetics in camu-camu.

Chlorella - Lifestream Open Cell Pure Green Microalgae: 100g

Chorella100
  • Description
  • More Details

Lifestream Chlorella is a natural microscopic plant containing over 20 vitamins and minerals, 65% protein and is abundant in essential micronutrients and RNA/ DNA nucleic acids. It is nature’s richest source of Chlorophyll. As such, it has powerful cleansing and detoxifying properties and makes an excellent blood tonic.

Unique to Chlorella is CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) – its inherent genetic stability gives it the potential to help repair damaged organs, tissues, DNA and RNA. DNA is the master substance of life carrying all inherited traits and directing the activity of each cell. The detoxification capability of Lifestream Chlorella is due to its incredibly high content of chlorophyll and its ‘cracked’ cell walls. They have the uncanny ability to ‘grab onto’ unwanted materials, pollutants and some heavy metal residues in the bowel and intestines and help to flush them from the body.

Are You Clean Inside?

It is no secret that much of the food we eat is peppered with chemicals - insecticides, pesticides, preservatives, colours and flavours. It can also often be loaded with saturated fats and refined carbohydrates. It is because of all these toxic materials we eat that bowel problems have soared, not only in New Zealand, but also in Australia, the U.S.A, the United Kingdom and Asia.

As this ‘sludge’ clogs up our bodies, our system slows down and our cells find it hard to absorb anything good and end up being drowned in slime and junk. It can’t be absorbed, we can’t get rid of it as waste, and so it sits and rots inside us!

Is Your Bowel Toxic?

Many people are horrified to hear that one sign of a good healthy bowel is having two to three bowel motions a day! Symptoms of over-toxicity or ‘rotting’in the bowels are generally seen as feeling sluggish and tired, low energy, irritability, bad breath, body odour, headaches, loss of appetite, flatulence, infrequent bowel motions and often just a feeling of being unwell. As more research is done, it is being discovered that many diseases are aggravated or even caused by poor bowel health. If you can’t get rid of the toxins or waste in your bowel, your body will not have the ability to function or heal properly. This is why cleansing and detoxifying the body regularly is so mportant. The main objective is to increase our body’s ability to get rid of waste and to greatly improve our ability to absorb the essential nutrients from our ood.One of the most powerful and natural ways to do this is by using premium quality ‘outdoor-grown’ Lifestream Chlorella. Studies have shown that ifestream Chlorella is highly abundant in unique phytonutrients and antioxidants that can offer protection against chronic disease, radiation, toxins and other pollutants in our air, water and food supply.

The Benefits of Being ‘Clean’ Inside

• A healthy, regular bowel
• Clear, vibrant skin
• High levels of energy
• Fresh, pleasant breath
• Feeling clear-headed and focused
• A good sense of well being and vitality

Chlorophyll - Clean and Green

Our grandmothers have always told us to ‘eat our greens’. One of the main reasons ‘greens’ are so good for you is that they contain chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a powerful dark green plant nutrient that has been referred to as ‘Green Blood’ because it looks like the hemoglobin molecule in human blood - as such it has powerful cleansing and detoxifying properties, makes an excellent blood tonic and has a long history of being effective at deodorizing bad smells.

One of the most effective and easiest ways to get the benefits of chlorophyll is in Lifestream Chlorella, which contains the highest natural source of chlorophyll available. Lifestream Chlorella helps cleanse stagnant blood. When your blood is clean, so follows the liver, bowel, organs, cells and tissues. You can really feel and smell the difference!

Japanese Studies Show Chlorella in action

Chlorella has been used to detoxify people suffering from pesticide and insecticide exposure. A study conducted at the Institute for Environmental Pollution Research in Japan gave 30 patients 4-6 grams of Chlorella per day for a one-year period. Reported improvements included feeling less tired, better digestion and normal bowel movements.

Give your body an internal deodorant!

Lifestream Chlorella cleans and detoxifies the body on many levels:

– Cleans and flushes out stored waste and pollutants in the body
– Aids the liver in ridding the body of toxins
– Acts as an internal deodorant, refreshing the bowel and breath and helping to reduce body odour
– Helps cleanse stagnant blood

Who should take Lifestream Chlorella?

Lifestream Chlorella is suitable for those wishing to maintain a clean and healthy bowel and liver by feeding the body nutrients that cleanse, detoxify and rejuvenate their system. It can be used for a short, intense detox and cleansing programme as well as for ongoing use to maintain a clean and healthy internal system.

Symptoms of over-toxicity or ‘rotting’ in the bowels are generally seen as:

• Sluggishness
• Low energy
• Irritability
• A spotty, pimply complexion
• Irregular bowel motions
• Bad breath
• Body odour
• Flatulence
• An ongoing feeling of being ‘under the weather’

How to take Lifestream Chlorella

Lifestream Chlorella is available in convenient minitablets or in powder to make a delicious fruit smoothie.

When taking Lifestream Chlorella, drink at least 4 glasses of pure water daily.

Short Two Week Cleanse

Begin by taking 4 grams daily (20 mini tablets or one rounded teaspoon of powder) with food for a two week period.
During this period, concentrate on eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (especially dark green leafy vegies), whole grains, nuts, seeds, beans and pulses and vegetable based proteins. For ideal results and to maintain your ‘clean insides’, follow up with the long term cleanse below.

Long Term Daily Cleanse

If you are eating a natural, fresh foods diet, take 2 grams daily (10 mini tablets or 2/3 of a level teaspoon of powder) with food. If your diet includes processed, refined and fatty foods or regular consumption of alcohol, caffeine or tobacco,
then your long term dose should be 3 grams daily (15 mini tablets or one level teaspoon of powder) with food.

We believe Lifestream Chlorella is the finest quality Chlorella available anywhere in the world.

These are our reasons:

1. PREMIUM QUALITY ‘OUTDOOR-GROWN’ CHLORELLA
Lifestream Chlorella has been ‘outdoor-grown’ in world-renowned pristine sub-tropical coral reef islands with pioneering technology for over 35 years. ‘Outdoor-grown’ Chlorella is far superior to indoor-grown Chlorella with much higher levels of Chlorophyll, CGF, Iron, Carotenoids, Calcium and Protein.

2. CERTIFIED BY JHFA FOR UNMATCHED PURITY
Lifestream Chlorella is guaranteed to be 100% pure and 100% GE FREE. We guarantee no pesticides, herbicides, fillers, binders, additives, chemicals, synthetics or excipients are ever used.Lifestream Chlorella is certified by and exceeds the strict standards set by Japan Health Food and Nutrition Food Association (JHFA).
These manufacturing standards are among the toughest and most stringent in the world

3. DIGESTIBILITY
Lifestream Chlorella uses a unique Jet-Spray-Dry-Breaking Cell technology that gives an astonishing 82.8% digestibility.
Some Chlorella’s use the ‘heating and blanching’ method and
this only gives a low 50% digestibility.

4. NUTRITIONALLY RICHER
The Jet-Spray-Dry-Breaking Cell technology achieves a higher and more stable nutritive Chlorella than other methods.
Very importantly, Lifestream Chlorella is thoroughly moved and agitated during cultivation to increase the protein levels.

5. ENVIRONMENTALLY PURE AND SUSTAINABLE GROWING CONDITIONS
Lifestream Chlorella is fed with mineral-rich water from coral reef mountains on world-renowned pristine sub-tropical coral reef islands. This is a pure, unspoiled and clean environment with very high natural sun levels. Lifestream Chlorella is the highest quality strain of Chlorella available.

Lifestream Chlorella can be taken on an ongoing basis to help maintain a cleansed and rejuvenated internal system.
Because it is a blood tonic and not a high fibre product, the effect on the bowel when doing a cleanse using Lifestream Chlorella is generally more subtle.

Some people can initially experience changes in bowel motions, headaches, spots, tiredness and generally feel unwell during the early stages of a cleanse. These are all signs that your body is responding to the cleansing and detoxification process by elimination. They should subside and, in time, be replaced with a feeling of lightness, increased energy and enhanced well being. In the very rare case of vomiting or nausea or if intestinal pain or constipation continues,
then discontinue use and healthcare advice should be sought immediately.

    FAQ

    Q: Is The Circulation Booster safe for everyone?
    A: Pregnant women and heart disease patients should seek medical advice before using The Circulation Booster.

    Q: I have diabetes, will The Circulation Booster be suitable for me to use?
    A: Definitely. A major side effect of diabetes is poor circulation in the extremities; this can become a serious condition. Using The Circulation Booster regularly will assist in keeping blood circulating in these areas.

    Q: I don’t have the time to use The Circulation Booster for 30 minutes per day, how can I get the benefit?
    A: You can easily incorporate The Circulation Booster into your day by using it whenever you are in a seated position for more than 10 minutes. Many people choose to use it while watching TV, reading or at the computer.

    Q: I suffer from poor circulation.  How often can I use The Circulation Booster?
    A: We recommend that for best results you use The Circulation Booster for 30 minutes daily. However, you can use The Circulation Booster up to 6 times per day, at up to 1 hour per session. To avoid muscle aches and tiredness, you may need to begin with less time and steadily increase your sessions.

    Q: Will I get best results from using The Circulation Booster on the highest setting?
    A: If the treatment feels comfortable and you can see and feel your muscles being stimulated you are likely to be on the right intensity setting. Using an intensity setting that is too high can overwork your muscles and reflexes, which may result in pain, fatigue or aggravation of an existing symptom. Likewise, using a setting that is too low will not be beneficial.

    Testimonials

    Lymphodema
    “I wish to inform you of the incredible success I have had with The Circulation Booster.  I am a 28 year old mother of two and suffer from chronic lympheodema caused by white-tailed spider bites and damage from the resulting treatment.  Two and a half years of intensive physiotherapy and lymphatic drainage massage saved my legs from amputation.  However, since then my legs had become more swollen, stiff and purple in colour.  The weight of my legs could only be described as dragging two big lumps of concrete around.  When the stiffness was at its worst walking was impossible. 

    I started using The Circulation Booster on 26th April this year.  Within the first three days, my legs began to feel much lighter almost as if I was floating.  The swelling in my feet had gone down so there was space between my toes.  The stiffness was also easing in my joints and I was able to bend my knees.  When three weeks had passed I have noticed a definite colour change to my feet.  My toes, which were black, are now a much healthier pink colour.

    The Circulation Booster has amazed me with its fast action on my legs.  Since using this machine I have found new hope that I am on the right path to improving my health condition.  It has been a miracle and I want to thank you.  If the product had been three times more costly it would still be fantastic.”

    Multiple Sclerosois
    “I was diagnosed with progressive MS in 1992. The major disability is to my legs and major deterioration has occurred progressively during the past 6 years. It has been getting worse every year. My right leg is the main problem. I wear a foot brace from calf to heal to stop foot drop. Insomnia has been a significant problem.

    I am currently undergoing Mitoxantrone treatment (seven treatments) to stop the MS progressing. I have had four treatments (one treatment every three months) and I have been going down hill since starting. I haven’t levelled out.

    I received The Electro-Reflexologist (ER) on Thursday 18 March. I used it twice during the afternoon and night on intensity 10 for the sole and intensity 15 for the electrode pads on the right knee. That evening I could actually bend my leg 15 to 20 centimetres where I had not been able to bend my leg at all for the past four years. I went to bed that night and had tears in my eyes because I was so excited at how fast the ER had worked and how rapid was the improvement. I couldn’t get to sleep due to the excitement however when I got to sleep I slept very well and I have slept well since.

    I used ER on Friday 3 times (each therapy 30 minutes) on intensity 10 (sole) and intensity15 (knee - pads). I was able to walk better. Before using ER, when I stood I had back pain and I had to grasp something to support me. On Friday I found that I could stand unaided and there was no pain in my back. I could stand really comfortably as if I had no disability.

    On Sunday I went to the Club. Normally I walk from the car to the first available seat with a walking stick - and I struggle. On Sunday I walked into the club without a walking stick and without support and without stopping for a rest. The people I was meeting were over the other side of the club and that made the distance greater. I still can’t pivot on my legs so I had to be careful not to collide with other patrons carrying drinks.

    Talking on the phone to you I’m standing and I’m bending my right leg about 15 to 20 centimetres. My hamstring hurts from lack of use. I do upper body exercise and I am starting exercise on my right hamstring to strengthen it.

    I have an automatic car and I drive with my left leg and push my right leg out of the way. My aim is to be able to drive with my right leg.

    When I ordered ER I said to my wife that if it improved my situation by 20% I would be very happy. It has already achieved that expectation.”

    - W. Pratt, NSW - Since we received this testimonial Mr Pratt has informed us that he is walking better, has improved balance, can bend his leg to 45 degrees, can turn over in bed and is sleeping like a baby without pain keeping him awake).

    Leg Ulcers, Varicose Veins, Swelling, Mobility & Blood Circulation
    “I purchased The Circulation Booster for the centre and also my personal use just before Christmas last year (2003).

    The history of the troubles I have had with my legs is as follows:
    I have had four leg ulcers on my lower legs over the past years and both legs have been stripped of varicose veins.  I have had numerous injections to close down leaking veins in both legs. I wear surgical stockings when the legs swell and become tight with the fluid pressure.  I also have regular acupuncture and massage treatments.  I have found all three of these treatments have helped me to carry out my daily tasks.

    The Circulation Booster has benefited me personally by helping with the venous flow from my feet and lower legs back to the heart.  I have noticed the lower legs and feet look a healthier colour, my feet feel easier to walk on, they are not tight and sore like they used to be.  My lower legs also feel much better as the circulation has been improved dramatically.

    I can honestly say that The Circulation Booster has benefited my feet, lower legs and blood, as the old blood is pumped back to the lungs and heart, and this improves blood circulation and therefore a person’s health has to improve over time.

    I had a basket of ironing to face in a heat wave, my legs were tired at the end of the day, but The Circulation Booster saved the day for me.  Half an hour on the machine was all that was needed, my batteries were recharged, the feet and lower legs felt terrific and the ironing was completed.”

    Goji Berries - Organic - Loving Earth

    • Description
    • More Details

    The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the same size as a raisin. It's very sweet and tastes something like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry. We love adding them to smoothies, trail-mix, cereals, especially our buckola, and eating them on just their own or with cacao beans.

    Nicknamed the "happy berry" for its ability to restore a person's vitality, there are more than forty different types of berries that are often referred to as goji berries..

    Heavy Metal Test Kit

    • Description
    • More Details

    World's First Immediate Method of  Screening Heavy Metals in any Aqueous Solution

    • Easy to test.
    • Quick and reliable result.
    • Ability to quickly test your drinking water and/or efficiency of your water filter.
    • Ability to quickly and conveniently obtain the heavy metal/urine concentration or body detoxification/chelation capacity.
    • Ability to track the heavy metal concentration or detoxification/chelation capacity over time as the patient supplements with detoxification/chelation products.
    • The assessment of the heavy metal concentration or detoxification capacity may serve as an early indicator associated with heavy metal intoxication.
    • Objective, scientific-proven procedure*
    • The scientifically documented Heavy Metal Test allows the detection of free electrically active heavy-metal ions in any aqueous solution by means of a simple single-use procedure and in just a few minutes.

    This exploratory procedure, employed as an in vitro screen tool, is based on the dithizone* reaction method which has been known to chemical science for more than sixty years.

    As a reagent, dithizone is able to indicate the presence of heavy metal ions in qualitative terms. In binding with the unbound or free metal ions, colour compexes are formed. The reaction times of the heavy metal ion vary: therefore, depending on their respective concentrations, different colourations occur from which one can, in addition to the qualitative conclusions, also semi-qualitative ones regarding the contaminant.

    The test permits the identification of several metals with only one reagent. It is easy to conduct and the results are not only quickly obtained but also provide a dramatic and convincing demonstration of the product.

    The test is recommended for anyone, since the presence of heavy metals in urine may indicate whether allopathic, naturopathic, or homoeopathic treatments are therapeutically feasible.


    * Isolation and determination of Traces of metals. The Dithizone system. H.J. Wichmann, FDA, USDA, Washington DC: Industrial and Engineering Chemistry.

    What the Experts Say About The Heavy Metal Test Kit:

    "We thoroughly investigated the test system with regard to its sensitivity and its specificiy and found consistent evidence that it is possible to detect individual toxicologically relevant metals in urine or water specimens in the range of a few ppm, at times even fractions of one part per million. This makes it possible to obtain on the spot clinically important preliminary data." - J. Lemann, Dr. rer. nat. Toxicologist and medical Expert, Institute for Toxicology and Medical Laboratory Diagnostics, Hirschberg, Germany.

    This report is intended to be an independent assessment of the claims of performance of a novel detection system for some transition metals. These materials are commonly known as toxic or heavy metals...it was found that the system shows remarkable sensitivity for such a simple procedure..." - K.H. Bell Ph.D. Professor and Head Department  of Chemistry, University of Newcastle, NSW`Australia

    "...until the beginning of the nineteen seventies this reagent was in predominant use for the detection of heavy metal traces in the water supply. It is a certified German Standard procedure for water supply analyses..." - G. Schwedt, Dr. rer. nat. Professor and Director, institute for Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry, Technical University of Clausthal, Germany.

    Health authorities (WHO 1974, Florence, Italy) estimate that at least 90% of all chronic diseases can be attributed to environmental pollution in one way or another. Heavy Metals are the major source for the production of free radicals as well as undermining the internal environment and body chemistry. Heavy Metals reduce the efficacy of medical treatment by up to 60%

    There is little hope for antioxidants and mineral supplements to do their job properly, if the body is burdened with heavy metals!

    The scientifically documented Heavy Metal Test allows the detection of free electrically active heavy metal ions in an aqueous solution by means of a simple procedure and in just a few minutes. This exploratory procedure, employed as an in vitro screen tool, is based on the dithizone(1) reaction method which has been known to chemical science for more than 60 years.

    Lucuma Powder - Organic - Loving Earth

    • Description
    • More Details
    Lúcuma (Loo-Ku-Mah) whole fruit powder is our favourite gourmet addition to all raw sweeties! It's got a rich, creamy texture and will turn your raw food creations into gourmet heavenly delights. Lúcuma powder is really versatile and tasty, blending easily and well with ice-creams, baby food, yogurts, pies, cakes, cookies, smoothies, chocolate bars and desserts of all kinds.

    Lúcuma is a nutrient dense fruit from Peru. Lúcuma's posh title is lúcuma obovata or pouteria obovata. The tree is long lived, evergreen, and belongs to the Sapotaceae family -- so it's similar to the canistel and sapote. It smells divine, and tastes like maple syrup flavoured ice-cream! In Peru, the yellowy-orange fruit pulp is added to ice-cream and is Peru's favourite flavour.

    Lúcuma fruit is an excellent source of carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals. It has lots of beta-carotene, niacin (B3) and iron.
    This exotic Peruvian fruit is also known as the "Gold of the Incas", and is also one of the lost crops of the Incas. Peruvian culture is steeped in traditions rich in fine foods and cultural culinary delights. The Lúcuma name has been honored both spiritually and culinary since ancient times. Today, this fruit is still prominent in contemporary celebrations.

    The Lúcuma tree was first seen and reported by Europeans in Ecuador in 1531. Archaeologists have found it frequently depicted on ceramics at burial sites of the indigenous people of coastal Peru. It is native and cultivated in the highlands of western Chile and Peru and possibly southeastern Ecuador where it is known to have been cultivated since ancient times. It is grown also, to a limited extent, in the Andes of eastern Bolivia and the fruit is sold in the markets of La Paz. It is most popular in central Chile, less so in Ecuador. In 1776, it was reported as planted only in the warmest parts of northern Chile. In 1912, there were a few trees growing in gardens around San José, Costa Rica where the lucmo was introduced by returning exiles in the first half of the 19th Century. In 1915, O.F. Cook collected seeds at Ollantaytambo, Peru, for the United States Department of Agriculture (S.P.I. #41332). In January of 1922, Wilson Popenoe introduced seeds from Santiago, Chile (S.P.I. #54653). There have been several attempts to grow the tree in southern Florida. It has not lived long. One specimen actually bore fruit at the Fairchild Tropical Garden, developed galls, and eventually succumbed. Lúcuma grows well in parts of Mexico and Hawaii but the fruit is not widely favoured.

    Maca Root Powder - Loving Earth - Organic

    maca-powder3
    • Description
    • More Details
    Maca (Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon) is a Peruvian root vegetable that looks very much like a turnip or radish. It is grown in the Junin district of the peruvian andes at an altitude of between 4,100 and 4,500 m above sea level, a region of intense sunlight, winds and below freezing temperatures, where no other crops can survive.

    Maca is considered to be one the best natural foods due to its excellent and scientifically tested properties.

    Health benefits of Maca:
    Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, all the essential
     
    amino acids and it contains nearly 60 phytochemicals. The extraordinary health benefits of Maca are due to the way it promotes optimal functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands. Maca contains unique alkaloids that stimulate the master glands, which in turn improves the overall functioning of the endocrine system.

    In stock now!
    Maca was originally domesticated by the Pumpush people of Junin in Peru, a pre-incan culture, who subsisted on it as their main staple crop. Maca plant was domesticated about 2,000 years ago by the Incas; primitive cultivars of maca have been found in archaeological sites dating back as far as 1,600 B.C.

    The plant is grown from seed and root maturation generally occurs within seven months. Its appearance may be described as a shrub with a low-growing, mat-like stem arrangement, small, off­white flowers, and scalloped leaves. The root can be one of several colors (cream, cream-purple, purple or black) and is of comparable shape to a turnip or radish.


    Traditionally, native medicine practitioners and herbalists have recommended maca for: 

    *  Treating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and depression, as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy [HRT]

    *  Stimulating and regulating the endocrine system

    *   Regulating and normalizing menstrual cycles
       
    *  Stimulating fertility in both men and women
       
    *  Supporting the immune system

    *  Increasing energy, stamina and endurance, reducing chronic fatigue
       
    *  Enhancing libido, treating impotence

    *  Revitalizing seniors, mentally and physically

    We are pleased to offer gelatinised maca as well as normal maca powder.  The gelatinised maca is put through a heated extrusion process after harvest and before it is milled. During the gelatinization process, long chains of starches contained in the Maca Root powder are unfolded, increasing the digestibility degree, also known as Gelatinization Index, which, in the case of our product reaches up to a 98+% index. This process concentrates the active ingredients which means you can absorb more of the essential nutrients.

    How does Maca Work?

    Maca, like Ginseng, is an adaptogen and therefore adapts to your bodies metabolism and particular needs to achieve an overall sense of wellbeing and optimal functioning. Through balancing and optimizing the functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands it also balances and optimizes the functioning of the adrenal glands, the thyroid and the pancreas. Because the levels of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone are optimized this in turn helps regulate ovarian function and enables the adrenals to produce enough hormones to avoid symptoms during menopause.

    Due to this overall affect of maca on the hormonal system and high level of protein it also acts as an effective whole food mucsle building agent.

    Maca also remineralizes the body, due to its high mineral content, making up for the lack of minerals in modern diets and conventionally grown fruit and vegetables. Maca has such a high mineral content due to the soils and environment in which it is grown. The cooperative of indigenous maca growers who grow our maca leave the soil fallow for 5 years after each maca crop so that the soils regenerate completely with minerals.

    Ingredients: Organic Maca Powder

    Dosage

    For the ancient Incans and modern day Peruvians, especially in the Junin district of the Andes, maca is a staple food. So you can eat as much as you like, the more you eat the more energy and overall vigour you will experience. Maca is non-toxic, has no dangerous side affects and no withdrawal symptoms. So the quantity you can take really depends on what you want to achieve. This is why we do not put Maca into capsules and why we make it available at an affordable price so that people can consume it in appropriate quantities and experience the full benefit.

    To start off with we recommend 1 teaspoon (if you feel a little queazy in the stomach reduce it to 1/2 a teaspoon for several days until your body adjusts to it). Then you can build up to 25g a day or approximately 5 teaspoons.

    The only warning we have is that if you have a partner and you are taking lots of maca we recommend that your partner also take maca as it is a potent aphrodisiac - if you are concerned about this then just reduce the amount you are taking.

    Serving Suggestions

    Maca has a distinctive malt like flavour. Some people like eating it straight as it is by the spoonful. As maca dissolves easily you can mix it into juices, smoothies and other recipes

    Mesquite Meal - Loving Earth - Wildcrafted

    • Description
    • More Details

    Mesquite meal is a traditional Native American food used as a staple food for centuries by desert dwellers, this high protein meal contains good quantities of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc, and is rich in the amino acid lysine as well. It has a sweet, rich, molasses-like flavor with a hint of caramel which blends well into smoothies or other drinks, especially those made with cacao and maca.

    The pods have traditionally been dried and ground into flours or processed into a sweetener, sweet beverage, or fermented into an alcoholic beverage.  

    Algorroba (Prosopis juliflora) is a leguminous plant found in South America that was spread to arid zones around the world, including the southwestern U.S., where it is known as mesquite. Algorroba trees growing wild in desert areas of northern Peru are extremely well adapted to adverse weather and soil conditions. This particular characteristic of all Prosopis spp. makes them a suitable plant to fight desertification, and the extension of its cultivation is recommended to stop desertification in semiarid regions and to promote development of drylands.

    About Mesquite and Diabetes:

    Researchers report that mesquite is highly effective in balancing blood sugar. The natural sweetness in the pods comes from fructose. Fructose doesn't require insulin to be metabolised -- making it safe for diabetics. The high rate of dietary fibre, pods are 25% fibre, causes the nutrients in mesquite to be absorbed slowly preventing the spikes and valleys in blood sugar. With a low glycemic index of 25, mesquite requires a longer time to digest then many grains. The digestive time for mesquite is to 4 to 6 hours unlike wheat that digests in 1 to 2 hours. These factors result in a food that maintains a constant blood sugar for a sustained time and as a result prevents hunger. Here is a food that supports the diabetic's diet and helps maintain a healthy insulin system in those not affected with blood sugar problem.

    The Personal Blender from Tribest Corp., a leading designer of high-quality small appliances for healthy lifestyles, is an amazing, all-in-one, durable, and ultra-powerful blender that allows you to make blended smoothies, protein drinks and other scrumptious delights without the hassle of having to stop and clean a bulky blending container every time you switch recipes. Just add your ingredients in one of the Personal Blender's dishwasher-safe, single-serving cups, screw on the stainless steel blade attachment, turn it over, and set it into the base. To blend, gently press down on the top of the cup for a quick blend or press and twist to blend continuously. Simply remove the single-serving cup from the base, turn it over, unscrew the blade attachment, and serve. The whole blending process takes less than a minute.

    "The best part is that you drink right out of the single-serving cup, so there's no mess to clean up and no cumbersome pitcher to wash," said Tribest Corp. President Jae Choi. "What's more, the Personal Blender comes with two single-serving cups, so you can enjoy a nutritious and delicious smoothie or protein drink just the way you want it, while making a different recipe for a friend or family member in their own cup without the extra cleaning step in between. Once you've finished your blended drink, all you have to clean is the blending cup and the blade attachment." For added convenience, each cup comes with its own lid for easy storage or for on-the-go transporting.

    The Personal Blender does everything a bigger blender can do, only faster and without the added mess and cleanup. In addition to blending just about any variety of fruit or vegetable, the high-powered, 200-watt motor easily blends ice and frozen fruits. It's also perfect for making sauces, salsa, sorbets, soups, and baby food. And with the stainless steel grinding blade that comes with the PB-200 model, grinding dry ingredients such as coffee beans, nuts, grains, herbs, and even feisty flax seeds is a snap.

    Designed for maximum convenience, The Personal Blender's less-than-5"-diameter base offers a significant space-saving advantage. And its lightweight, elegant profile lets you move it around the kitchen with ease, or grip and lift it like a martini shaker for extra ingredient agitation. And unlike the big, heavy containers of ordinary blenders, the Personal Blender's single-serving cups fit easily and conveniently in the refrigerator and are made of virtually unbreakable, stain- and odor-resistant polycarbonate, the same material used for making bullet-proof windows and barriers.

    Tribest's commitment to safety is clearly illustrated by the Personal Blender's serving cup that, unlike traditional blenders, completely encloses the blending and grinding blades.

We use organic agave syrup (a natural, low GI sweetener) instead of sugar to create these delicious chocolate bars.  As our chocolate is made with raw criollo cacao it has a slightly lower melting point than regular processed chocolate, so it is best stored below 25ºC.

    How it's processed

    First of all, the cacao pods are harvested from the trees and cracked open. The beans are then taken out and fermented. The level of fermentation affects the flavour; we do a low fermentation of about 45 degrees C, as otherwise the temperatures can get quite high, which affects the structure of the nutrients. The main thing that Loving Earth does differently to other chocolate makers is that we don't roast the raw cacao beans before we process them. The standard procedure in the chocolate industry is to roast the raw cacao, which helps bring out the flavour. It removes a lot of the microbiological contamination they might contain, but it also removes some of the valuable antioxidants contained within. What we do instead is wash them with a citric-based organic disinfectant. Afterwards, they're dried in large commercial dehydrators, at controlled temperatures, before being winnowed into nibs, which basically means taking the skin off them. Then we grind them into liquor, and finally we press them into powder and butter.

    Basically, we get five products from this process. We get raw cacao beans, and because we've disinfected and washed them you can eat them - raw! We get raw cacao nibs, which are the beans without the skin. We get raw cacao liquor, which is the nibs ground into a paste. Then when we take the the liquor and put it into a very high-pressure press, which presses all the fat and butter out of it. So the end product is the raw cacao butter and then this hard cake that's milled into raw cacao powder. 1kg of liquor is about 50% fat, so when you press the liquor you get about 40% cacao butter and 60% powder. The powder retains about 10% fat content after pressing, and all the antioxidants plus a lot of the nutrients are concentrated in that powder.

    We buy and import these five products, which we use to make our raw chocolate from scratch. When indigenous communities such as our friends in Peru manage to add as much value as possible at the point of origin, not only do we support agricultural industry, but also the development of that community. We get the five basic materials we need to make our chocolate, and they earn more, allowing them to further develop infrastructure to process their cacao.

    How it's packaged

    Every Loving Earth chocolate bar comes to you in a plant-based inner wrapper to maximise freshness and extend shelf life. These wrappers are not made of plastic, so please recycle them!

    The boxes which contain our wrapped chocolate bars are made from 80% recycled post-consumer cardboard and are printed with vegetable inks.

    Karengo Fronds - Sea Vegetable: 500g

    • Description
    • More Details
    KARENGO (Porphyra species)

    Karengo is a dark purplish and green cellophane- textured sea vegetable found on rocky shores. It is a cousin of Japanese nori and contains lots of fiber and protein.  It is harvested in clean, pure water off the coast from Kaikoura off the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, dried and then packaged in easy to use ziplock bags.

    Raw, it has a mild, pleasant flavour, tastes nutty and slightly salty, and can be eaten as a snack straight out of the bag. Karengo goes very well with almost anything - grains, potatoes, eggs, vegetables and seafood. It doubles in size when fully hydrated. We add it to salads - sometimes straight from the packet and sometimes after being soaked in a very small amount of water for a couple of minutes.

    Karengo fronds will keep indefinitely if kept in a cool, dark, dry place

    Sea Vegetables - What Are They?

    Sea vegetables grow in coastal sea water without roots or flowers. They have anchors called holdfasts that help them attach to rocks or other sea plants. There are about 15,000 species of seaweed around the globe. They are classified into three main groups according to colour: reds, browns and greens. Of the thousands of species of sea vegetables, only a small fraction is used for human consumption. On average, they contain 50% carbohydrate, 35% protein, many vitamins (incl. B12), fibre and a maximum of 2% fat.

    Sea Vegetables - Why Eat Them?

    Although many people resist trying seaweed, sea vegetable connoisseurs are often made, not born. Many of us have acquired the taste already because of the popularity of Japanese sushi. The reality is that sea vegetables can be an unsurpassed complement to most meals for both taste and nutritional value even in Western cuisine. The secret is to know what other foods complement the taste of a particular sea vegetable. Different varieties of sea vegetables, like land vegetables, have widely different tastes and characteristics.

    Because they are hydroscopic, sea vegetables can be used as a nutritious and flavourful binder in fritters, pancakes, soups and gravies. Kelp also acts as a natural tenderizer and flavour enhancer for meats and in marinades.

    Nutritional Value

    Sea water and the fluids in a healthy human body contain many of the same minerals in very similar concentrations. As a result, sea vegetables have been treasured throughout centuries for their ability to restore, nourish and strengthen the body. One does not have to eat great quantities of sea vegetables in order to enjoy their benefits. Used dried as a seasoning, many varieties of sea vegetables add a delicate hint of the sea. When used in cooking, they add a slight salty taste and a lot of texture to the dish. Roasted, they sometimes have a delicious nutty taste.

    Sea vegetables are rich in vitamins, contain all fifty-six minerals and trace elements identified as health requirements, plus they have other nutrients, many of which are known to offer protection against radiation or chemical pollutants. For that reason they are known as a great promoter of glandular health. Minerals in sea vegetables are assimilated more easily than minerals in most supplements because they are made available in an organic chelated form.

    Sea vegetables contain iodine, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphates, sulphates, chlorides, bromides and other nutrients in a well balanced form. Moreover, many natural nutrients are easier to assimilate than ones that are artificially produced.

    Virtually all sea vegetables contain an abundance of the trace elements, including zinc and magnesium. Sea vegetables are easily prepared and are widely available in natural foods stores. You do not have to eat great quantities of sea vegetables in order to enjoy their benefits.

    Sea  vegetables have an alkalising and normalising effect, making them ideal for an often over acidic Western diet. They have a diuretic action in our body which means that sea plants help release excess body fluids and dissolves fatty wastes through the skin.

    Sea Vegetables in History

    It seems that sea vegetables have always been used by humans, with centuries-old recipes still used today. Past use is attributed to the people of South Africa, China, Japan, Hawaii, Burma, Philippines, Chile, Peru, the North American Indians, Aztecs, Eskimos, Germans, French, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, British, Channel Islands and Maoris. Maoris used seaweed extensively in soups, steamed, roasted, raw and often mixed into a jelly with tutu juice to be eaten or used medicinally. The wide blades of Rimurapa were split to form a pouch for packing and preserving mutton birds, or to cook fish in. In China each family member was given a slice of seaweed jelly daily as a tonic, while seaweed harvesting in Jersey was time of singing, dancing, feasting and storytelling. Commercialisation started in the 1800's in Britain mainly with alginates.

    Chinese physicians used sea vegetables as long ago as 3000 BC to treat human maladies. The Babylonians used extracts and whole plants for cosmetics and skin care preparations. The ancient Egyptians treated what we now call goitre with sea vegetables. East Coast American Indians dipped sea vegetables in clam juice, sun-dried them and used them effectively against influenza, a custom still followed on the coast of Maine.

    Detoxification Properties

    There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables. All sea vegetables contain radio-protective properties. One of the more powerful protective elements in sea vegetables is sodium alginate. The alginic acid found in sea vegetation acts as a binding or chelating agent in the body for the radioactive strontium 90 which is now found in our vegetables, milk and meat. Not only does alginic acid flush out strontium 90 from the digestive tract, but it also extracts and chelates it from the bone marrow and bloodstream. Researchers at McGill University (Canada) are finding that this extends to all heavy metals including lead, cadmium and mercury.

    Another benefit of eating sea vegetables is that they help dissolve fat and mucus deposits. The body frequently stores environmental contaminants in fat or adipose tissue because they are not essential to life. By helping to dissolve fat deposits and by pulling some contaminants out of the body, sea vegetables can help detoxify from different types of radiation and industrial pollutants.
