Coconut Sugar - Organic

!

This pure and simple cane sugar alternative is produced from the sweet juices of tropical coconut palm sugar blossoms. Traditional sugar farmers climb high into the canopy of swaying coconuts and harvest the sweet nectar by gently slicing the flower. Once collected, the nectars are kettle-boiled into a thick caramel and ground to a fine crystal.

Coconut sugar has long been a staple for south East Asian culinary heritage and herbal medicine.

Coconut Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI), which has benefits for weight control and improving glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2).

* Coconut Sugar is rated as a GI 35. By comparison, most commercial Honeys are GI 55 and Cane Sugars are GI 68.
* Coconut Sugar has a nutritional content far richer than all other commercially available sweeteners.
* Coconut Sugar is especially high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.
* Coconut Sugar is a 100% Organic, unprocessed, unfiltered, and unbleached natural sweetener. And contains no preservatives.
 * This coconut sugar is produced by smallholder farmers. 100% of the money from growing, harvesting and primary processing of this ingredient stays in the local community.
* Through market access and production training, smallholder sugar tappers have risen well above the poverty line and are able to earn an increase in personal income of close to 200%, while maintaining a competitive market price as a cane sugar alternative!
* The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the World Bank has reported that palm sweeteners like this coconut sugar are the single most sustainable sweetener in the world!
* Coconut Sugars are not produced from the same palm species as is used for the production of Palm Oil.
* Coconut Palms produce an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than Sugar Cane and use less than 1/5th the nutrients for that production.
* Tropical palms are an ecologically beneficial tree crop that grows in diverse, wild-life supportive agro-ecosystems, restore damaged soils and require very little water.
* Coconut Palms are considered the “Tree of Life” by many traditional communities throughout the world as they provide over 100 smallholder accessible products from which to make livelihoods. The production of Coconut Sugar has the single highest potential for lifting these farmers into a better life while creating a net benefit to their surrounding environment.

Nutrition Information

Compared to brown sugar, Coconut Sugar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the zinc.

Cinnamon: The Amazing Spice That Can Help Support Healthy Blood Sugar Levels, Blood Lipids, and Blood Pressure

Cinnamon has been used for thousands of years as a spice and medicine. It’s mentioned in the Bible as an ingredient in the oils used to anoint Moses, and as a token of friendship. Mourners burned cinnamon on funeral pyres in ancient Rome in order to cover up the smell of burning flesh.


In ancient Egypt, cinnamon was used as a medicine and an embalming agent, and at times it was even considered more precious than gold. It was also popular in China, and is mentioned in one of the earliest books on Chinese botanical medicine. 1


Today cinnamon is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine (traditional Indian medicine) to treat diabetes in India. And recently Richard Anderson and his team at the US Department of Agriculture’s Human Nutrition Research Center in Beltsville, Maryland, discovered the scientific evidence that demonstrates how cinnamon serves as an important antioxidant, and is beneficial in the prevention and control of glucose intolerance and diabetes. 2

In a recent study, people reduced their blood sugar levels by as much as 29 percent in just 40 days. That's with NO drugs, NO diet changes—just plain old cinnamon!


How does cinnamon work?


Data from the Agricultural Research Unit in Maryland was first published in the New Scientist in August 2000. The researchers found that cinnamon triggered the ability of fat cells in diabetic individuals to respond to insulin, and it also enhanced the removal of glucose.

Cinnamon contains a water-soluble polyphenol compound called MHCP (methylhydroxy chalcone polymer), which is partly responsible for its health benefits. In unpublished test tube experiments, researchers found that MHCP mimics insulin, activates its receptor, and works synergistically with insulin in cells. When mice were given MHCP, their glucose levels fell dramatically. 3

Then, to see how it would work on humans, Alam Khan, who was a postdoctoral fellow in Anderson’s lab, organized a study in Pakistan. Volunteers with type II diabetes were given one, three, or six grams of cinnamon powder a day in capsules after meals.

All responded within weeks, with blood sugar levels that were on average 20% lower than a control group. Some even achieved normal blood sugar levels. Blood sugar started creeping up again after the diabetics stopped taking cinnamon.

Cinnamon has additional benefits. It also lowered blood levels of fats and “bad” cholesterol, which are also partly controlled by insulin. And in test tube experiments, it neutralized free radicals which are elevated in diabetics. 4


Active ingredients

Anderson’s team found that cinnamon contains antioxidants called polyphenols that boost levels of three key proteins. Those proteins are important in insulin signaling, glucose transport, and inflammatory response.    In another study, the scientists investigated cinnamon’s chemistry and found that proanthocyanidin—a type of polyphenol—may have insulin-like properties. 2

“The researchers concluded that cinnamon might be a valuable candidate for a new anti-diabetic drug. 5

Additionally, a group at the University of Calgary, Canada, found that phenolic acids, which are a major component of cinnamon extract, lowers blood glucose levels by enhancing glucose transport. The researchers concluded that cinnamon might be a valuable candidate for a new anti-diabetic drug. 5


Scientific studies:

Anti-diabetic

Insulin resistance—also called Syndrome X—is a silent condition that increases the chances of developing diabetes and heart disease. After you eat, the food is broken down into glucose, the simple sugar that is the main source of energy for the body’s cells. But your cells cannot use glucose without insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, which directs cells to remove excess glucose from the bloodstream. Insulin helps the cells take in glucose and convert it to energy. When the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body is unable to use the insulin that is present, the cells can’t use glucose. Excess glucose builds up in the bloodstream, setting the stage for diabetes.

Diabetes can go undetected for up to 40 years, or until serious complications begin to surface and the pancreas just can’t keep up with the demand for insulin.  Some people produce two, three, or four times the normal amount of insulin.  Yet, because the cells have lost their sensitivity to the hormone, they require even more of it to maintain normal glucose levels. The end result is often type II diabetes.

Type II diabetes kills 100 million people prematurely each year. In patients with the condition, fat and muscle cells gradually lose their ability to respond to insulin. As a result, glucose builds up in the blood, causing symptoms such as fatigue, weight loss, blurred vision and neuropathy (resulting in numbness in extremities), and circulatory problems.

The good news is that cinnamon extract dramatically helps to reduce risk of insulin resistance and type II diabetes.

In addition to the studies already mentioned, other recent studies found that:

  • Cinnamaldehyde, a fat soluble cinnamon compound, decreased blood glucose levels and total cholesterol and triglyceride levels in diabetic laboratory animals. 6

  • Cinnamon bark extract improved glucose metabolism in animals that were fed fructose. 7

  • Cinnamon extract given at different doses to diabetic animal models for six weeks had a regulatory role in blood glucose level and lipids, and it may have also exerted a blood glucose-suppressing effect by improving insulin sensitivity or slowing absorption of carbohydrates in the small intestine. 8

Anti-bacterial

In an evaluation of the antibacterial activity of 21 plant essential oils against six bacterial species, cinnamon came out on top. The selected essential oils were screened against six bacteria: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Bacillus subtilis, and Staphylococcus aureus. Cinnamon oil was found to inhibit all of them, even at low concentrations, and was determined to be a good source of antibacterial agents. 9

  • When cinnamon extract was tested against a resistant Candida species in five patients with HIV infection and oral candidiasis, three of the five patients exhibited improvement of their Candida infection. 10

  • A recent Chinese study of cinnamon extracts found they were effective in inhibiting the growth of various bacteria including: Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Vibrio cholerae, Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Samonella typhymurium, and fungi including yeasts (four species of Candida, C. albicans, C. tropicalis, C. glabrata, and C. krusei), and molds. 11

Anti-inflammatory

As an anti-inflammatory agent, cinnamon may be useful in preventing or mitigating arthritis as well as cardiovascular disease. And as scientists increasingly understand the relationship between inflammation and insulin function in Alzheimer’s (causing some to refer to the neurodegenerative disease as “type 3 diabetes”), cinnamon’s ability to block inflammation and enhance insulin function may make it useful in combating that disease as well. 12

Helps regulate blood pressure

Many nutrients and nutraceuticals—including cinnamon extract—that enhance insulin sensitivity and/or reduce circulating insulin concentrations are capable of lowering blood pressure. When cinnamon was added to the diets of laboratory animals that included sucrose for 3-4 weeks, their blood pressure was reduced to the same levels as the animals that ate a non-sucrose diet. 13


Conclusion:


Cinnamon is found in household spice racks around the world, and you’ve probably enjoyed its flavoring all your life. Now, thanks to scientific research and the nutritional supplement industry, you can also reap its full spectrum of health benefits in the form of an easy to take daily supplement that provides a concentrated form of cinnamon’s water-soluble and fat-soluble phytochemicals.

Vanilla Beans - Organic

About Vanilla

For centuries, vanilla beans (pods) have been one of the most familiar flavours, fundamental to western cuisine. Commonly used to flavour desserts, beverages, milk products and coffee, vanilla is one of the most loved flavours of the western palate.

It is believed, the Totonaca people of Mexico were the first cultivators of vanilla, during MesoAmerican times. They believed this exotic fruit had been bestowed upon them by the Gods, and continue to cultivate vanilla today.

In the 14th century, the Spanish conquistadors under Cortez, watched Montezuma, Emperor of the Aztecs, pulverize vanilla beans, combine them with chocolate and serve it as a drink in golden goblets to his most honoured guests. The Spanish caught on quickly and by the middle of the 15th century, were importing it to Europe to use as a flavour in the manufacture of chocolate.

As European explorers and their attendant botanical recorders and collectors combed the forests of Central and South America, vanilla beans became more common in Europe. Europeans followed the example of the tribes in the New World and used vanilla beans in the production of medicine, as a nerve stimulant and as an aphrodisiac. They also invented a few of their own uses, including the flavouring of another New World product, tobacco.

By the early 1800’s vanilla plants were growing in botanical collections in Germany and France. Horticulturists were experimenting with conditions for its growth. From Europe it was transported to Reunion, Mauritius and the Malagasy Republic. In the new tropical colonies, slave labour discovered that hand pollination of the flowers was necessary to produce vanilla beans.

From these points, vanilla plants were taken to Indonesia, the Seychelles, and the Comoros Islands. At approximately the same time, vanilla was introduced as a crop in Martinique and Guadeloupe in the Caribbean.

Today, vanilla beans grows within 20 degrees north and south of the Equator in the tropical regions of the world.

Madagascar and Indonesia grow the majority of the world’s vanilla beans. Other countries around the Pacific rim which grow and supply vanilla to the world include Papua New Guinea, Tahiti, Philippines, Fiji, Tonga, India, China, Guatemala and Costa Rica.

Our Vanilla Beans

Our certified organic vanilla beans come in glass bottles with about 1 to 2 beans to the gram.  25g has about 15 to 20 beans.  They are organic from an indigenous grower association of Totonucans from Papantla Mexico.  This is the home of vanilla where it originally came from and this indigenous group domesticated the vanilla plant.    Mexico is the only place in the world where the vanilla plant is naturally pollinated everywhere else it has to be pollinated by hand..

They are very moist premium vanilla beans with excellent long-lasting aroma and taste.

Add them to smoothies, ice creams, sauces & chocolate recipes.

"The eating of clay has been observed in native peoples and animals in all parts of the world since antiquity. Early writers described the widespread use of kanwa (earth from a lake near Lake Chad ) for animals and humans in Nigeria . Long journeys were made to this lick to obtain a tribal supply of this earth, and it was then issued as rations to cattle and humans..." Eaton Earth

Montmorillonite clay is a non-swelling green healing clay known to have potent healing properties.

Utilizing the curative power of the Earth in practices such as Pelotherapy should, we believe, truly be considered a lifestyle modification; it should be adopted as an integral part of healthy living. There is no substitute for the benefits that quality healing clays can provide both in and on the body. We cordially invite you to view what we have discovered over the last eleven years of research.

Clay molecules carry negatively charged ions. Pollutants carry positively charged ions. Clay particles do two things that work in our favor. Firstly, they attract the positively charged toxins which is called adsorbing. Secondly, they absorb  these toxins literally locking them away and protecting us from them. The structure of clay is like layers of playing cards with space between them. These  layers swell as they absorb pollutants and toxic substances. The greater the surface area the greater the power to pick up positively charged particles of toxins and heavy metals.

Testimonials

I must say I was pleasantly surprised after my first sip of GREENSHIELD, the taste is simply terrific, as is lacking with most green drinks out there,....I felt a "buzz" almost immediately after drinking it, and so I was quite happy to have sips throughout the whole day.

The taste is quite mild, and pleasant on the palate, and you really feel it the very first time you drink it. I think it's the "Real McCoy", and the price as well is very affordable. I'm looking forward to AlkaVision's upcoming new products, as I'm already convinced and a believer in this line of products.

Sincerely,

Kyle Safa, San Ramon, CA

Dear AlkaVision,

I have been using the pH drops and green shield pretty faithfully. The GreenShieldhas a wonderful taste! I promise to keep ordering....!!! I love the product... I drink GreenShield instead of my coffee every morning!!! I do still need to drink more water, but I do only drink water so I have come along ways... have lost about 6 lb to keep off and am doing great... still need to work on a more alkaline diet... but baby steps are working!!! Thanks to God for putting you in my path!!!

Sincerely,

Joan Cole

I ordered my first bottle of GreenShield over a week ago and have been very satisfied with it. Both my husband and I have tried at least 3 other green drinks, and none of them measure up to GreenShield! Most green drinks don't taste good, but yours does. That's quite a surprise! Other green drinks try to include every imaginable supplement. Unfortunately, many of those supplements are acidic and defeat the purpose of the green drink.

I can assure you that my husband and I will be loyal customers and will continue to use your product. In fact, our first order was a test to determine if we liked GreenShield. Our next order will be for 10 bottles. We don't ever want to run out of it!

Regards,

Edith

Flax Benefits

Good colon health is necessary for good overall health. Achieving and maintaining good colon health, as demonstrated by proper bowel function, can be greatly enhanced by adding a fiber product such as B-Flax-D to the diet.

Rich source of soluble and insoluble fibre

Insoluble fibre from flax holds water and increases bulk, which helps to maintain optimal bowel function. Soluble fibre helps absorb cholesterol, which keeps it from being reabsorbed from the intestine ' an important point to know for those who are concerned with their cholesterol levels. It also keeps beneficial bacteria in balance in the colon, and the colon in good working order. Additionally, soluble fibre slows down the absorption of glucose from food, thus reducing the glycemic response to carbohydrate foods ' something that people with diabetes should consider.

Good source of minerals

Flax contains naturally occurring calcium, chromium, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc in beneficial amounts. Approximately 57% of the fat in the flaxseeds in B-Flax-D are ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid); research has shown that ALA helps stabilize the electric patterns in the heart, which can prevent arrhythmias.

Vitamin K2 Benefits

Vitamin K plays an important role in helping to build strong bones, prevent osteoporosis and maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. Natural Vitamin K2 is the most effective, bioavailable and bioactive form of Vitamin K. MenaQ7TM, the type of K2 used in B-Flax-D, is the only clinically proven Natural Vitamin K2.

Healthy bones
Calcium is needed to build strong bones. But without Vitamin K, our bodies cannot use calcium! Clinical studies have shown that Vitamin K is vital in supporting bone health because it activates a special protein (osteocalcin) that is necessary to use calcium to build healthy bone tissue.

Healthy heart

Calcium is a vital nutrient used by every cell in our bodies. New research has shown that Natural Vitamin K2 is essential for our arteries, veins and heart! Natural Vitamin K2 is the effective form of K because it activates a special protein (matrix GLA) that is necessary for the vascular tissues to make use of and then remove excess calcium.

B12 Benefits
Regular use of B-Flax-D will ensure that a person gets a sufficient amount of vitamin B12, an important component of total health.

Healthy cells
B12 is important for healthy cell production, such as red blood cells, which contain the hemoglobin responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body, whereas a deficiency in B12 has been linked to anemia. Vitamin B12 also aids in cell formation and cellular longevity.

Healthy body and mind
A single serving of B-Flax-D contains 990µg of the methylcobalamin form of B12, which has been found to be cancer-protective in animal studies. It has also been linked to the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that assists memory and learning.

Vitamin D Benefits
Sunshine is the best source of vitamin D, a pro-hormone that is essential for strong bones and a healthy body. However, getting adequate levels of UV light from sunshine to produce the proper level of vitamin D in the body is not always possible, making supplementation with a product like B-Flax-D a wise choice.

Strong bones
The main action of vitamin D is to regulate the absorption of calcium in the small intestine. Optimal levels of Vitamin D (78-100nmol/L) can increase calcium absorption by 65% (compared to a low 'normal' level).

MSM - 99.96% Ultra Pure Distilled Pharmaceutical Grade

!

We are very happy to supply new ultra-purified distilled Pharmaceutical Grade MSM at the best prices in NZ!

What is MSM?

MSM - an odourless, white crystalline molecule - is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms, and is present in low concentrations in our body fluids and in the connective tissues of the skin, nails, and hair. This sulfur is necessary for collagen synthesis.

MSM is a natural component of many fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat, and is also found in tea, coffee, chocolate and milk. In fact, one of the richest sources of MSM in the diet of mammals is milk. MSM is also commonly referred to as 'Nature's Beauty Mineral'!

MSM naturally scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to foods and pollens, controls acidity in stomach and ulcers, and helps the vitamins and minerals we take in to nourish our bodies. It is an all-natural product derived from sulfonyl, an organic compound that grows naturally in plants, animals, and in soil. Its largest concentrations are found in pine trees. Unlike sulfur, MSM is completely water-soluble and non-toxic. Large concentrations have not been found to do any harm to the human body.

It is estimated that the human body uses up to about 1/8 teaspoon of MSM each day. This needs to be replaced on a regular basis. Unless your diet is comprised primarily of raw foods, it is unlikely that you are receiving enough MSM for proper health management. Although MSM is found in many fresh foods, modern agricultural methods, food processing, and cooking cause its depletion. When we process our foods with heat or drying, we lose most of the MSM that is vital to our wellbeing.

MSM can:

    * Soften tissue
    * Relieve stress, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, constipation and candida
    * Control stomach acidity and soothe ulcers
    * Relieve allergies to foods and pollens
    * Enhance the body's ability to produce insulin
    * Improve metabolism of carbohydrates
    * Detoxify the body
    * Increase blood circulation and speed up wound healing
    * Reduce muscle cramping and back pain
    * Permit muscles to heal
    * Increase energy, mental calmness, and ability to concentrate.

When applied to the body topically, it will help to:

    * Rehydrate the skin
    * Repair damaged skin, and dissolve scar tissue and surface blemishes
    * Generate softer and more elastic skin
    * Soothe insect bites and stings
    * Eliminate the inflammation of carpal tunnel
    * Prevent blistering and remove pain from second degree burns
    * Attack exterior fungal and yeast infections

Resveratrol 20%

!

Resveratrol is a type of polyphenol that can be found naturally in a variety of sources including grapes, Japanese knotweed (giant knotweed), berries, peanuts, dark chocolate and tea.
 
The French Paradox: Resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, first gained publicity in the early nineties when the CBS television show, 60-Minutes, investigated why people living in France, despite eating diets high in saturated fats, had lower rates of coronary heart disease than people living in the United States. The report concluded that a higher consumption of red wine may play a role in lowering coronary heart disease. Since then, research has pointed to resveratrol, a substance contained in grape skins and many other plants, as the compound with the possibility of preventing or delaying coronary heart disease, in addition to various other health benefits.

Trans-Resveratrol boasts a long list of benefits including cardiovascular health, anti-inflammatory properties, the prevention of joint disease, improved athletic endurance, and the possibility of preventing and eliminating certain types of cancers.

By increasing blood flow, resveratrol may protect not only the heart and arteries, but also the brain. Studies in the United Kingdom suggest that resveratrol may help prevent or reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease. [Source: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition].

A study by the University of South Florida suggests that resveratrol may not only prevent, but might even reverse the dangerous build-up of fat in the liver caused by alcohol abuse.

According to a study published in "Molecular Vision" in 2010, resveratrol may prevent the formation of cataract, and is an effective therapeutic agent in neurodgenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.

Although resveratrol does not lower cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar or promotes weight loss,  resveratrol's blood thinning properties may protect you from these conditions, by preventing  heart attacks and strokes.
Pure resveratrol refers to a product that contains only pure trans-resveratrol, the beneficial substance in resveratrol. Pure resveratrol (obtained from knotweed) is white and has almost no odor or taste as compared to low purity products that are darker in color and have a distinctive odor and taste. Hundreds of resveratrol products are sold in the USA, however only a few contain pure trans-resveratrol

Various studies by both the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and Harvard University in Boston, have found that a calorie restriction diet (CR) improves health and slows the aging process in animals and humans due to limiting dietary intake.

Previous research has confirmed that calorie restriction combined with exercise may increase maximum lifespan and protect against many chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer.

According to a Harvard University study, resveratrol has similar effects to a calorie restriction (CR) diet and may be used as a substitute to supplement a low calorie diet and exercise regimen. The implication of this is that while on a resveratrol regimen, an over weight individual, without losing weight, may be considered as a "healthy obese" person. According to the study, mice that were fed a high fat diet along with resveratrol performed better on a treadmill and lived longer than the thin mice that were fed a low calorie/low fat diet and no resveratrol. [Source: Harvard University Gazette/ Harvard medical school].

When it comes to maintaining optimal health, resveratrol may offer even better protection than taking aspirin. It is generally believed that high cholesterol is the main cause of heart disease. However, based on thousands of heart surgeries, many cardiologists believe that a large number of heart attacks are not necessarily caused by high cholesterol, but rather, they are the result of inflammation. Different foods may cause different levels of inflammation in our body, and even one "bad" meal can cause an instant heart attack.

Another factor to consider is not necessarily the total cholesterol count but rather the particle size.
According to a recent report by Johns Hopkins University, the new way of measuring risks of heart disease and strokes is done by NMR LipoProfile test, which measures the particle size of LDL cholesterol.

Resveratrol's blood thinning and anti-inflammatory properties may prevent blood clotting and increase blood flow, both of which may decrease or even prevent heart attacks and strokes. One way to improve athletic endurance is through exercise. According to Johan Auwerx, from the Institute of Genetics, Molecular and Cell Biology in Illkirch, France, "Resveratrol boosts muscle endurance by increasing the energy-producing components within muscle cells". Auwerx says that "high-doses of trans-resveratrol are needed to trigger the pathway that gives cells more mitochondria. He goes on to say that, "at very low doses you don't activate the cell machinery to burn energy," thereby discounting the belief that, "one glass of wine might improve athletic prowess". The effects of resveratrol are so pronounced that endurance athletes may one day take it as a performance enhancer.

Trans-resveratrol in sufficient dosage improves athletic performance and benefits everyone by making any physical activity much easier. For example, individuals who have difficulty walking up flights of stairs are able to do so with much less effort when they take resveratrol.
 

 

Our resveratrol is made from knotweed & is a 35:1 extract & contains 20% trans-reservatrol.

Zeolites - The Leading Science-Based Detoxifying Dietary Supplement

!

Men’s Health Magazine lists Zeolite as the 5th most important natural supplement for long-term vibrant health. June 14th, 2010 edition.

In our everyday world today, toxins are everywhere! Evidence has been built about the effects of our toxic environment and what it has on our long term health. It is not good! Scientists have known for quite some time that pollution and pesticides can adversely affect human health, and mounting evidence now reveals far more serious, and even deadly connections between toxic exposure and a variety of diseases.

Toxins poison our air, our water, our food, and our bodies. According to the EPA, 70,000 chemicals are used commercially in the U.S., 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health. The Environmental Defense Council reports that more than four billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment each year, including 72 million pounds of known carcinogens. We live in a virtual "sea of pollutants", and we carry many of these toxins and heavy metals within us. As many as 25 percent of Americans are estimated to suffer from some degree of heavy metal poisoning, particularly from mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic. No figures exist for New Zealand. 

Most protein powders contain high levels of heavy metals, especially Cadmium. In fact, many protein powders are banned by specific states in the USA because they do not meet the health criteria due to heavy metal overload.

Of the EPA’s list of 275 hazardous substances, Arsenic, Lead and Mercury rank #1, #2 and #3. Cadmium is #7. These are some of the most common heavy metals that we are exposed to in our daily environment.

Most fish, especially tuna (known for it’s Omega 3’s) contain high levels of mercury in them.

We are also exposed to a significant amount of radiation and increasing viral attacks. Our immune systems may be further compromised by poor nutrition and unhealthy lifestyles, and many of us suffer from an excessively acidic pH level, which creates an internal environment in which cancer – as well as viral, bacterial, and fungal infections – can thrive. These synthetic chemicals and heavy metals can be found even in unborn children, being passed on by the mother through the placenta.

As toxins accumulate, they can have very negative effects on each and every system within our bodies. Our bodies are a precise machine that as these toxins build up over time, they can cause damage to neurological, immune, reproductive and endocrine systems. Some of these toxins can cause cancers, some are toxic to the brain and nervous system and some can even cause birth defects and diminish our body’s overall immunity levels.

Moreover, conventional foods that we eat are grown in "devitalized" soils and we are missing important trace minerals. Trace minerals are the catalysts the body uses to initiate complex reactions and it's these reactions that allow the body to stay healthy and fight disease. Throughout the last century, the level of trace minerals in our topsoil has been reduced due to our farming practices and method of fertilization. This disturbing fact has led to a worldwide deficiency of these trace minerals in our food and our body. Many nutritionists attribute the ongoing decline in health that our society is experiencing, in large part, to deficiencies of trace minerals. Until recently, the only sure way to remove the most destructive heavy metals and toxins from our bodies was through I.V. chelation, a process both invasive and extremely expensive. And even if you spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars on chelation treatments, the toxins would start going right back in with your next breath,your next meal, your next beverage.

Often simple changes can make a massive difference to how we feel. Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes, believed that 90% of all medical conditions are attributable to excessive heavy metals, toxins, toxic chemicals, and minerals and trace mineral deficiency.

How do we counteract the long term build-up of toxins in the body?
Fortunately, there are natural compounds that do exist that can safely bind and remove these harmful toxins from the body. One group of such compounds includes some of the safest, most effective and natural detoxifying minerals known - Zeolites!

What Are Zeolites?
A Zeolite is an alkaline mineral which is formed when lava and ash from volcanoes have a chemical reaction with the sodium of sea water. This reaction creates a cage like structure along with a negative charge which makes zeolite different than any other mineral on the planet today. The negative charge in the zeolite acts like a magnet in your body to attract the positively charged toxins and heavy metals, and trap them in the cage of the zeolite. Other products in the marketplace cause what is known as a “healing crisis” by re-exposing your body to all of the heavy metals and toxins when they pull them out of your body cells. Your body then is forced to re-filter them which comes with many negative side affects. With zeolite’s cage structure, it traps the toxins and heavy metals, so your body is not re-exposed to them. This is why zeolite does not create negative reactions and provides concrete positive results in the detoxification process.

One of natures miracles, zeolite, was created over thousands of years upon the earth and has been waiting for science to catch up, find it, discover its greatness and deliver it to mankind where it can improve people’s lives and wellbeing.

The zeolites are a group of minerals with a four-sided honeycomb structure and, rare among minerals, a negative magnetic charge. The effect of the structure and the magnetic charge is that zeolite draws heavy metals (including mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, aluminum) and toxins to it and simply engulfs them. The toxins "check in" and they can't "check out." Then the zeolite carries them safely and harmlessly out of the body through normal digestion.

Because zeolite is a natural substance on the FDA's list of GRAS (generally regarded as safe), it is brought to the market as a powerful and unique detoxifier. 100% of the zeolite in our product (there are nearly 50 naturally-occurring zeolites) is the subgroup called "clinoptilolite". This type of zeolite that has been studied for its effect in human nutrition.

The human body views the clinoptilolite zeolite as a natural mineral, which is not absorbed by the body. Zeolite will pass through the body, absorbing toxins and heavy metals like a magnet with it's cage-like structure and negative charge, and then will be excreted by the body naturally within 5 to 7 hours. Such a mechanism enables long-term use without side effects and toxicity.

We are very pleased to offer 3 different zeolite preparations to choose from:

 Testimonials

"In 2008 I was diagnosed with Meige's Syndrome, a rare brain disorder with no known cause or cure. It made me functionally blind, difficult to speak and unable to walk. The drugs I was given made me constantly vomit and severe seizures which they said was stress and panic attacks. I found out that the drugs were full of heavy metals and came close to killing me. A friend of a friend told me about Zetox and said, "What do you have to lose?" I had nothing else to lose. I lost my job, my insurance, my home and ended up with nothing. My friend started me on Zetox and it is giving me my life back one step at a time. I have become a different person through this agony and tell everyone I come in contact with. It is now my passion in life. Thank you for helping me be well. God Bless”
Lori Ann Folk

“In April, my Doctor discovered a solid tonsular mass in my throat. Zetox helps take toxins away from that area, reducing the damage to cells nearby and slowing the tumor growth and pain. Also, I can think more clearly with Zetox, can do better research and meal planning also, in order to learn how to get better.”
Jerry Warren

“I just want to share with you, what a wonderful product this Zetox is. I had insomnia for about 15 years. After 5 weeks on Zetox, I’m able to sleep without any sleeping aids. Thank you so much for producing this product. Your Zetox product is the best nutritional product I have been exposed to in 30 years. I plan on sharing my Zetox story with everyone I meet. Thanks again!!”
James Browning

“When I started to take Zetox, within two weeks my skin started to get healthy and younger looking, also my nails got shiny and I felt more energized. I have been taking Zetox for one year now and I look much younger than my age and I believe that Zetox has detoxified my body. After seeing all the changes in me, my family and friends, even my Doctor, his family and his patients are taking Zetox. I believe that I will take it forever.”
Shaparak Shahvar

“After the events on Fukushima, having the experience as a medical student with Chernobyl consequences, after doing careful research on the levels of contamination on US West Coast, I decided that I am not going to take chances, neither as a mother, nor as a physician. Zeolite was the first thing that came to mind, along with Iodine and Spirulina. My whole family is taking Zetox from day one as, according to our calculations, first air masses from Fukushima reached WA State. Imagine how it felt when Japan started using Zeolite to clear up waters from radiation around the station. Do you need more proof that it works? I doubt it.”
Dr. Valentina Kiselev

“Listen to this…. two days after I started taking Zetox I was putting on my makeup and noticed my wrinkles are diminishing on my face.. deep ones. My husband started taking it too, same results. The other person who purchased thru our site was not told of our results but quickly contacted us stating he is having the same results. Interesting, ayyyy????”
Leean Puleston

“I was introduced to Zeolite about three years ago. My nine-year-old son has Autism and I was looking for a safe and natural way to detoxify him from heavy metals. (There are many methods out there but I didn't find one I was comfortable using.) I wanted to give him something natural that would be gentle and have no side-effects. My son can't swallow pills so I put some zeolite powder in his orange juice a couple of times a day. After a few weeks, I noticed an overall improvement in his speech and he was more attentive and responsive. He continues to improve to this day and now my whole family takes it. I recently switched to the new Zetox formula of zeolite and I love it! It has the added benefits of including Vitamins B-12 and D3, which I had previously been giving my son as individual supplements. I highly recommend Zetox for everyone to take on a regular basis to combat daily exposure to environmental toxins, and I especially want to recommend it for all children with special needs. This is an essential supplement that my family will never do without.”
H. King

"Some years ago a friend of mine was given two to five months to live with breast cancer. She went on Zeolite and lived a further six years and in her last weeks she told me she had stopped taking zeolite as she had not been able to afford it for a few months and said if she had been able to she would live on for many more years. During these six years I was diagnosed with a debilitating blood lung disease where as I produced large amounts of blood sputum from my lungs and nose daily, and struggled for ten months to perform the smallest of tasks. My friend Chris put me onto Zetox and two weeks later I was completely well and could not produce even a small amount of sputum for further pathology test.”
Caroline Ziebell

“My son has had issues with heavy metal toxicity and the Zetox worked wonders! We relented in his regimen a few months ago, and his symptoms relapsed. Symptoms included joint pain, delusional behavior, "meltdown" that became violent and an inability to focus and concentrate. Needless to say, he's back on the Zetox. We just mix it in some applesauce and the kids (3 and 9) love it, no complaints. We've all begun using it in light of the fallout threat, and the peace of mind alone is worth the purchase price. Thank you for the blessing of this product!”

Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength Jumbo Intra-Oral Spray - 60ml bottle

!

The Leading Science-Based Detoxifying Dietary Supplement

Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength also known as Nano Liquid Zeolite is exponentially more effective at removing heavy metals and toxins than other brands of zeolite liquids or zeolite powders.

 

Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength safely attracts and removes mercury, cadmium, heavy metals, radioactive particles, chemicals, toxins etc.  Nano Cellular Zeolite is by far the best chelation/detoxifier/heavy metal cleanser product on the market today. It has an affinity for heavy metals, thus it won't strip and deplete your body of beneficial minerals such as calcium or magnesium like many other non-selective chelation products such as EDTA do.

Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength formula's sub-micronized zeolite provides a much larger surface area for the zeolite to do it's job! When compared to the same volume of the competition's zeolite products there can be up to 1,000 nanotized zeolite particles for every single one of their micronized zeolite particles.

Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength formula's intra-oral spray is the most efficient delivery system possible. Up to 95% absorption compared to 10 - 50% absorption rate for capsules, powder and other zeolite liquid formulations. Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength goes to work instantly, detoxifying your cells, blood, organs, and naturally helps to balance your body's pH levels.

More effective than standard micronized zeolite products. Powder zeolite & other water-based zeolite liquid formulas utilize micronized zeolite, with particle sizes much larger than the proprietary nanotized zeolite crystals found in Nano Cellular Zeolite.

Also our Nano Cellular Zeolite chelation/detoxifier/heavy metal cleanser product is formulated to remove chlorine and fluorine, two of the most powerful oxidizing agents which are found in most tap water.

Nano Cellular Zeolite Extra Strength provides the highest concentration of nanotized natural clinoptilolite zeolite per spray.

Men’s Health Magazine lists Zeolite as the 5th most important natural supplement for long-term vibrant health. June 14th, 2010 edition.

Most protein powders contain high levels of heavy metals, especially Cadmium. In fact, many protein powders are banned by specific states because they do not meet the health criteria due to heavy metal overload.

Of the EPA’s list of 275 hazardous substances, Arsenic, Lead and Mercury rank #1, #2 and #3. Cadmium is #7. These are some of the most common heavy metals that we are exposed to in our daily enviroment.

Most fish, especially tuna (known for it’s Omega 3’s) contain high levels of mercury in them.

In our everyday world today, toxins are everywhere! Evidence has been built about the effects of our toxic environment and what it has on our long term health. It is not good! Scientists have known for quite some time that pollution and pesticides can adversely affect human health, and mounting evidence now reveals far more serious, and even deadly connections between toxic exposure and a variety of diseases.

As toxins accumulate, they can have very negative effects on each and every system within our bodies. Our bodies are a precise machine that as these toxins build up over time, they can cause damage to neurological, immune, reproductive and endocrine systems. Some of these toxins can cause cancers, some are toxic to the brain and nervous system and some can even cause birth defects and diminish our body’s overall immunity levels.

How do we counteract the long term build-up of toxins in the body? Fortunately, there are natural compounds that do exist that can safely bind and remove these harmful toxins from the body. One group of such compounds includes some of the safest, most effective and natural detoxifying minerals known - Zeolites!

What Really Are Zeolites?
A Zeolite is an alkaline mineral which is formed when lava and ash from volcanoes have a chemical reaction with the sodium of sea water. This reaction creates a cage like structure along with a negative charge which makes zeolite different than any other mineral on the planet today. The negative charge in the zeolite acts like a magnet in your body to attract the positively charged toxins and heavy metals, and trap them in the cage of the zeolite. Other products in the marketplace cause what is known as a “healing crisis” by re-exposing your body to all of the heavy metals and toxins when they pull them out of your body cells. Your body then is forced to re-filter them which comes with many negative side affects. With zeolite’s cage structure, it traps the toxins and heavy metals, so your body is not re-exposed to them. This is why zeolite does not create negative reactions and provides concrete positive results in the detoxification process.

One of natures miracles, zeolite, was created over thousands of years upon the earth and has been waiting for science to catch up, find it, discover its greatness and deliver it to mankind where it can improve people’s lives and wellbeing.

How Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods and Ionized Water Can Make You Healthier than You Have Ever Imagined In 90 Days or Less.


The Seven Components of Natural Health


By Bob McCauley

With a Foreword by Peter Ragnar and Introduction by Dr. Gabriel Cousens

2nd Edition, November 2011
Paperback, 232 pages

"This book is a winner." Gabriel Cousins

Health books require medical disclaimers because if you don't provide them you become liable in every way. But I don't have any problem stating that I know almost nothing about medicine and have no formal training in the health field. But then, what does it take to understand how to Achieve Great Health, a doctorate or a few letters behind your name? More than anything it takes understanding through experience and that is what I have done. These are simply my observations about how I became healthy. Anyway, medical disclaimers are necessary so here is mine:

This book is not intended in any way to serve as a replacement for professional medical advice. Rather, it is meant to demonstrate that aging can be slowed and even reversed and that great health is achieved when the most fundamental nutritional needs of the human body are met. If you feel the need, always consult a doctor or another medical professional when you have an illness or disease of any kind. We admit to knowing little if anything about medicine and therefore would never offer medical advice to anyone for any reason. Medicine is in one direction, health is in the other. The author offers health advice that is his personal opinion only.


Foreword

What if you could tap the treasures of health wisdom from the world's experts? Imagine if you could ask them anything! Yes, anything and everything about how you could Achieve Great Health. Now, wait! This is more than just getting rid of diseases like cancer, heart problems, diabetes, arthritis, stroke, and silly ailments like the flu. This is about Achieving Great Health!

Very few people have ever had that privilege. My friend, Bob McCauley, is one of those rare people. As a talk show interviewer he has asked the world's experts everything you ever wanted to know about health.

After years of testing, using his own body as the laboratory and observing the results, Robert discovered the hidden formula. So, not only do you have a distillation of the Greatest Minds of Natural Healing, you have it in a simple form that you can use. Yes, you can Achieve Great Health in 90 days or less!

I certainly, don't mean to imply that all these great teachers agree on every point. Even Robert and I have a minor difference or two. But, what is presented within these pages is so important to your personal health that it's vital for you to get started today.

I feel so strongly that you will Achieve Great Health by following my friend's advice that I jumped at the humbling opportunity to write this forward. Please, don't let another minute pass without making a decision to Achieve Great Health.

With you in Achieving Great Health, Peter Ragnar

Introduction

Achieving Great Health in 90 Days or less is one of the most inspiring live food and health book primers that I have seen. Bob McCauley distinctly understands the mystery of creating optimal vibrant health. He shares it through the medium of his own experience, which is the real foundation of healing.

He has isolated the fundamentals of health: becoming alkaline, raw foods, the use of super foods Spirulina and Chlorella, adequate hydration and ionized water, probiotics, exercise, and a positive mental attitude.

The power of healing is about the broad strokes, rather than the details or obsessing about health. This book is excellent for those making the transition into live foods. It helps people wake up into the practical reality of living a live food lifestyle. His discussion of live foods and the use of chlorella and Spirulina is one of the best I have seen. I personally also use the E3Live in addition to the other algae. The E3Live has the much needed long chain omega 3 DHA and EPA which is not available in the vegetarian world except for golden algae for DHA and purslane for EPA. It also stimulates stem cell production, and has an intensity of neurotransmitter precursors, which makes it particularly powerful for enhancing brain function.

Bob has a wonderful way with words to present the issues people face when they choose to be healthy. “Everyday when we awake, we do one of two things: improve our health or encourage disease.” The power of his health wisdom comes from his direct health experimentation over the years as well as from his role as a health talk show interviewer, which allowed him to tap into the wisdom of many of the worlds leading experts. With his background as a layperson, he as been able to beautifully distill this wisdom down into some simple principles that allow them to be grasped by the general public. The basic principle is that when we flow with nature and follow the natural laws the tendency toward disease will diminish. According to Bob, optimal health is the point where the body is totally regenerating itself, each organ is functioning to capacity, and biological aging has stopped or reversed. Disease cannot take root in a vibrantly health body and mind. A high functioning body in which the energy is freely flowing creates the preconditions for the light of the Divine to awaken.

I appreciate this book so much because he has summed up how to create high level wellness in one sentence and then simply, but eloquently takes the rest of the book to explain this one message. As he unfolds his message, we are treated to a delightful sharing of practical tips and insightful quotes that he has gathered over the years. He has simplified his approach into six components, which naturally detoxify and alkalize the body.

1. Hydrate the body

2. Introduce Spirulina and chlorella into your diet

3. Introduce probiotics

4. Introduce raw foods and build slowly until one reaches 100% raw

5. Minerals & Our Health

6. Daily exercise

7. Develop a positive mental attitude

I highly recommend this book to anyone starting out on the journey to health and look forward to carrying it in our Awakened Living Shoppe at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. This book, like Bob McCauley, is a winner.

Preface

“Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”  ~ Mark Twain

If you are sick it is because you allow yourself to remain sick. By that I mean that the human body is capable of curing itself of any disease. Unless you are terminally ill, the average person can Achieve Great Health in 90 days or less. In most cases, even those diagnosed as “terminally ill” can turn their health around in several months if they are determined to live at any cost.

We get sick and prematurely age ourselves by turning our bodies acidic. We turn ourselves acid by living on a primarily cooked-food diet, not properly hydrating our body, consuming substances such as processed foods that barely resemble anything nutritious, while at the same time doing almost nothing to alkalize ourselves. When we become acidic we are wide open to disease of any and all kinds. If we are sick, our bodies are acidic. If we are seriously ill, our body pH is dramatically lower than it ought to be. This is a dangerous, sometimes life-threatening situation that cannot be ignored. But it can easily be remedied if we become resolute about changing our health.

The protocol for permanently ridding the body of disease and living in true health is quite simple. We should only consume Spirulina and Chlorella , Raw Foods , Ionized Water and probiotics. We must also exercise regularly and maintain a positive mental attitude . Health is as simple as that. The following pages describe exactly how we can Achieve Great Health in only a few months time. This protocol can be followed by anyone, regardless of your current health situation. The better shape you are in, the easier it will be. All it takes is the desire to do so and the determination to see it through.

I have not by any means attempted to answer every question about health in this book, nor cover every conceivable health topic. Rather, this book paints broad strokes about how we can be as healthy as we can possibly be. Although the details of how the body actually works are nice to know, it certainly is not necessary if we only want to be healthy. The details are provided merely to support the arguments I pose in this book. How many of us would drive if we had to learn to dissemble and repair a car? Mechanics would be our chauffeurs if that were the case.

To be healthy, we only need to know what belongs in the body and what does not. Once we have implemented the simple lessons outlined in this book, true health will most certainly follow.


Prologue

“For most men life is a search for the proper manila envelope in which to get themselves filed.” ~ Clifton Fadiman
When I wrote my first book, Confessions of a Body Builder, Rejuvenating the Body with Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods and Ionized Water (COABB), I was aware that I had not said everything about health I wanted or needed to. But I knew I had laid the foundation for the true road to Great Health. What I want to accomplish with this book is a further exploration of exactly what we need to do to Achieve Great Health, Perfect Health. The premise of writing this book was that I wanted nothing more than to seek the truth about how to be healthy; the following pages describe what I found.

Profound lifestyle changes are not easily implemented and that is what's required. Most of us are fundamentally resistant to change even though it is change that keeps us vital and invigorated, more than we ever realize.

I wrote this book for everyone, especially the average person who lives on a meat and potato, junk-food, fast-food, processed-food diet or perhaps likes to barbecue on the weekends. Many of us don't realize that the world of true health even exists, that it actually is a place you can take your life to if you chose. True health is found in the raw , not cooked world of food, and it is one seldom visited by most people.

As for the health conscious community at large, this book will make perfect sense to most of them because their minds are already open to new possibilities. Everyday when we wake, we do one of two things: improve our health or encourage disease. The choice is always our own.

Many questions have arisen about my health protocol since writing COABB and I have tried to answer them in this book. One of the most common questions has been: If I go with this protocol, how long will it take till I am healthy? The answer is 90 days or less, depending on how badly you want to be healthy. This can be achieved regardless of how sick you may be at the moment, short of being rived with some disease that has placed you at death's door. If you do not properly hydrate, detoxify and alkalize your body, you will never be healthy. It is simply impossible. Only algae, raw foods and Ionized Water can achieve this quickly, especially if you are an adult with a lifetime of accumulated toxic waste in your body that has completely acidified it.

What I mean by Great Health is robust health, the kind of health that only a few of us will ever experience. Simply moving to a Raw-food Diet will allow your body to remain healthy. But without the incredible rejuvenating, body-building nutrients of Spirulina and Chlorella, along with consuming Ionized Water and Probiotics , exercising daily and developing a Positive Mental Attitude, Great Heath is not possible.

This book is the culmination of my knowledge and experience with human health and how to get there. I am not a formally trained medical, health or nutritional professional in any way. What I know of health is what I have read, experienced and spoken with others about. I offer in these pages no medical advice, but rather guidance and ruminations about health. I know almost nothing about medicine because medicine does not lead to health. This book is essentially one person's opinion, that of my own. However, I challenge anyone to find flaw with the basic tenets of my health philosophy, which is that water and raw foods rule .


My Journey to Perfect Health

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” ~ Robert Frost

I got my first warning sign that I was heading for physical ruin in 1992 after a stressful move from New Jersey to Michigan . I became quite ill over a 12 hour period and had to be taken to the hospital. It was likely a kidney or gall stone, but they never determined exactly what it was. It happened again one year later. I was on the road to the demise of my health. I was a lacto-vegetarian; I consumed dairy products , but no meat at all. I understand now that I was destroying my body with a cooked-food diet that was not providing me with any rejuvenating nutrients and was slowly acidifying every inch of me. I was dying prematurely as does everyone who lives on a cooked-food diet.

Most people don't make it to 50 before they're on some kind of medication, which is the first white flag they throw up as they surrender themselves, piece by piece, to disease, premature aging and unnatural death. Once you submit yourself to medicine, medical procedures, surgery and allopathic doctors, you are giving up and allowing yourself to become a health lemming. Your friends and family have diseases just like yours; thus you assume that disease is an inevitable part of life. Everyone else eats cooked foods, goes to a doctor and gets pills, so if you don't something must be wrong with you.

The truth I have discovered over the last eight years is that when you flow with nature and do the things that nature demands of all living things, disease does not exist and the idea of living a “long life” of only 90 years will disappear. Science tells us that the human body is built to live at least 120 – 150 years, yet it is rare for anyone to reach that age. If we can indeed rejuvenate ourselves at a cellular level, meaning that our cells are constantly provided with sufficient water and nutrients, the body itself can theoretically live indefinitely. There are many intriguing notions and possibilities in considering this principle. I will leave it to you to speculate on what those possibilities could mean for you, but the conventional notion of a lifespan will seem silly to you by the time you've finished reading this book.

I am in my forties and have the body I had in my twenties. I can run like I did when I was in high school. I have gotten stronger and more limber since moving to this health protocol . I have more stamina and endurance than anyone I know who is my age or older. I look like a person ought to look for my age, i.e. youthful, not what we are accustomed to seeing in people my age. All these things are quite special, but I am not special. Anyone can do what I am doing. Anyone can take their life to the next level and beyond. Anyone can stop putting walls in their path if they chose to.

Changing your life in a fundamental way begins with self respect. If you have that, you have the intelligence and integrity to realize that our many appetites put us in a painful, early grave and we only cheat ourselves out of God 's most precious gift, our health and therefore our lives.

The cure for all disease is found at your local supermarket in the produce section. The cure for any disease will never be found in a laboratory and that is hard to accept because science has always dazzled us; and for many has become the answer to all our problems. Three things must be accomplished if we expect to cure ourselves of any disease. We must hydrate, alkalize and detoxify the body. It is the recurrent theme of this book because it is the recurrent theme of health. This book will tell you exactly how to accomplish this so that regardless of what disease you may have, you can rid it from your body.

Attaining my current level of health has been difficult, although I can hardly begin to describe to you how wonderful I feel each day. I have come far, but my journey to perfect health continues because there are always areas of our lives we can improve on. If you have not heard of the raw food lifestyle, then come with me and discover the incredible world of fresh foods and raw dishes that will at first seem alien to you, but will one day become your close friends. Open your heart and hear the message of perfect health that nature offers us. You will not be disappointed with the results.

Perfect health is the point when the body is totally regenerating itself every moment, when biological aging has stopped completely and each organ of the body is functioning to its capacity. Few of us ever truly achieve this. I am not there yet and still have far to go. But considering where I was and how I felt then compared to how I feel now, this sure feels like perfect health. I can't wait to experience the real thing.

Water Summary

“Water is a colorless liquid that enables us to see the colors of the rainbow. It has no form but gives form to everything. It is billions of years old but can constantly rejuvenate itself. It is at the beginning and end of every cycle of life and history. It provides a constant interchange between the Earth and all the other planets in the cosmos. Every drop is a microcosm of the universe, carrying information from ancient eras and from worlds that we cannot yet understand. It is a liquid, a solid and a vapor. It is everywhere and in everything. It holds the key to our health, and we hold the key to the health of water.”~ Charlie Ryrie

You need to hydrate your body because there is nothing more important regarding human health than a properly hydrated body, which translates into sufficiently hydrated cells throughout the body. If the body's cells are not healthy, we cannot be healthy. Cellular health equals human health.

Ionized Water has four qualities that are perfect for the body's health: Antioxidant , Alkalinity, Hydration and Detoxification. Start slowly and increase the potency of the Ionized Water you consume until you are drinking 1.5 – 2 gallons per day. Drink it all day except around mealtime. An extra trip or two to the bathroom is an extraordinarily cheap price to pay for your most precious possession: your health. You are the only person who can consume enough water to start on the road back to the health you were born with, that which God intended you to have, not the body you have transformed it into from a lifetime of eating primarily dead foods that are acidic, dehydrating and void of any rejuvenating properties.

Hydration is the first step toward reversing chronic illnesses and strengthening the immune system . It is our first defense against disease and the very keystone of human health.

There is a certain calm and stillness that only water offers. It is impossible to sit by tranquil waters and not feel at peace. Herman Melville mused that “ Meditation and water are wedded for ever.” He could not have been more right. We came from the sea.

Spirulina and Chlorella Summary

“They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea.” ~ Sir Francis Bacon

The most powerful foods on earth are Spirulina Pacifica and Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. They compliment one another in many ways because they are completely different foods with different nutrients. Spirulina is an extremely pure food, 95% digestible, extremely high in the Vitamin B-complex, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids such as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is excellent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or bursitis. Spirulina is an excellent food to consume before a workout because of the explosive energy it provides to the body.

Chlorella has incredible anti-cancer properties. Its unique fiber is great for the digestion, as well as heavy metal and synthetic toxin removal. It has large amounts of nucleic acids (RNA/DNA ), which, along with amino acids (protein), are the building blocks of our cells. Chlorella can even be used topically on cuts, scrapes, infections, even serious wounds, as can Spirulina .

The second step in Achieving Great Health is to add these superfoods to your diet. Start slowly, gradually increasing them until you reach a dosage of at least eight grams of each daily. (See Appendix: Spirulina, Chlorella & Water Dosages .) You can never consume too much Spirulina and Chlorella as long as they are raw and their enzymes are intact. As you increase your dosage, gradually reduce your intake of protein from traditional sources, such as meat , fish, eggs, soy and dairy products . Algae is best consumed with each meal because of its high protein content, the highest percentage of any foods known with 18 different amino acids that are in the proper ratio to one another. Protein must be consumed with everything you eat for proper digestion and nutrient absorption. Most vegetarians lack sufficient protein in their diet.

Great Health will be nearly impossible to achieve without these two powerful whole foods at the center of your diet.

Raw Food Summary

"Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go."  - William Feather

Only a raw foodist has the ability to Achieve Great Health, perfect health, the kind of health most people only dream of. If you remain on a cooked-food diet, you will never truly be healthy even though the outward symptoms of disease may not manifest themselves for years to come. Disease always resides in the body of the cooked foodist whether the symptoms are there or not.

Everyone wants to be healthy. No one wants to be sick or even divulge they ever get sick. Sadly, most will remain sick because of their refusal to leave the cooked-food world behind and start putting in their body what naturally belongs in it, that which can only make them healthy. Only what comes from nature will ever make us healthy. There is no substitute for nature because it is God 's ever-moving hand. And no matter what man creates to try and make himself healthy, it will only end in failure. God's temple can only be properly served and maintained by the raw foods that are produced by God's creation, that which we call nature .

Book Summary

“The credit belongs to those people who are actually in the arena . . who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions to a worthy cause; who at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."~ Theodore Roosevelt

The body can cure itself of any disease. If you are sick it is because you allow yourself to remain sick. Hydration, alkalization and detoxification are the three keys to preventing and curing us of any disease. Nothing is more important to the body than water and there is no better water for the human body than Ionized Water . It is a powerful antioxidant, as well as extremely alkalizing, hydrating and detoxifying. Fasting with water is the healthiest thing we can do for the body.

Spirulina and Chlorella are the two most powerful whole foods in the world. They are perfect proteins and have the broadest array of nutrients of any foods. We should replace our traditional animal protein sources, meat , fish, eggs and dairy with these two nutraceuticals, which, like all raw foods, provide the body with the proper nutrition so the body can heal itself.

Probiotics ( acidophilus and bifidus ) are friendly bacteria that help the body assimilate nutrients and keep the digestive tract clean and alkalized. They are crucial to human health and should be consumed with everything we eat.

All cooked foods are acidic, poisonous and addictive. We eat them because we like their taste and because we have been conditioned all our lives to believe they are healthy for us. Raw foods are alkaline and rejuvenate the body by providing the body with nutrients that have not been either destroyed or chemically altered by cooking. Cooking is the greatest destroyer of our health. Raw foods contain enzymes which are responsible for every movement, action or thought of the human body and mind. Without enzymes, life would not be possible.

Regular vigorous exercise is essential if we wish to achieve robust health. We should work each of our 650 muscles every day. Cultivating a positive mental attitude is also critical to our health. Self-doubt can destroy your efforts with the force of split atoms. Have faith in yourself and what you can achieve and a hero that others will want to follow will appear in your mirror one day. Great Health gives us confidence, vigor, purpose and even more importantly it gives us hope.

 

Alkalize or Die

!

By Dr Theodoore A Baroody, Jr

Paperback: 242 pages

This powerful book carries an important message that can benefit everyone—a message destined to revolutionize health care of the future with one simple principle—ALKALIZE YOURSELF!

The world is facing the largest health crisis in recorded history. Dr. Baroody's comprehensive research and clinical findings indicate that illness and disease are directly linked to over-acidity in the system. The polluted air we breathe, the chemicalised food and water we ingest are just part of the problem. Stress on all levels—physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual cause the body to overproduce acid wastes, upsetting our delicate alkaline/acid balance.

By following the guidelines in this book you can evaluate your alkaline/acid situation, determine a course of correction, and achieve a high level of vitality and strength.

Discover:

    * Clear definitions of alkaline and acid.
    * What causes tissue acid wastes.
    * Why hydrochloric acid is good for you and other acids are not.
    * The alkaline needs of glands and organs.
    * The truth about contagious diseases.
    * How to prevent acid-related maladies that accelerate ageing.

Learn how to:

    * Choose foods that create alkalinity.
    * Prepare alkaline-forming meals using the 21 day meal planner.
    * Take nutritional supplements for proper alkaline/acid balance.
    * Use the new "super foods" for building alkalinity.
    * Neutralize any type of stress.

Reap the rewards of superior health by adopting the alkaline way of life!

Excerpts:

Acidosis is the basic foundation of all disease. We need to understand the simple process of alkalizing our body and the important role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining our overall health. Our glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system.
 
The Impact Of Acidosis On Your Organs:
 

Heart
The heart is one of the most alkaline-dependent organs in the body. It is partly enervated by the vagus nerve which functions best in an alkaline environment. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood of proper oxygenation and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.
    
Stomach
Digestive difficulties (belching, bloating, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, regurgitation, hiccups, lack or limitation of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic in children) may indicate vagus nerve problems and possible hiatus hernia syndrome, which can produce acid residue throughout the system. Hiatus hernia can quickly reduce necessary hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Without proper hydrochloric acid breakdown of foods, the foods become too acidic.
    
Liver
The liver has over three hundred functions, including processing acid toxins from the blood and producing numerous alkaline enzymes for the system and is your first line of defense against any poisons. All the nourishment obtained through the gastrointestinal tract enters the blood by way of the liver. The load on the liver is much heavier when acid waste products are constantly floating in the blood. If the liver becomes too congested with protein acid wastes, death is imminent.
    
Pancreas
The pancreas is highly dependent on correct alkaline diet. All aspects of pancreatic function reduce excess acidity and regulate blood sugar balance. To have proper blood sugar balance, you must maintain a primarily alkaline-forming diet.
    
Small Intestines
The Peyer's Patches, in the upper portion of the small intestines are crucial to life. They are essential for proper assimilation of food and producing lymphocytes for the lymphatic system's wide ranging nodal network. They also produce large amounts of the enzyme "chyle", which is a major alkalizing substance. The uninterrupted flow of chyle into the system is crucial. Too much acid waste production from acid-forming foods is a great burden on the Peyer's Patches, which lessens the production of chyle.
    
Kidneys
In an adult, about 1 liter of blood per minute passes through the kidneys. By executing their primary duty, the kidneys keep the blood alkaline and extract acid. Kidneys that are over-stressed with too much acidity create kidney stones, which are composed of waste acid cells and mineral salts that have become gummed together in a waste acid substance. Therefore, by reducing acid-forming products from entering the body, the chances are better that you can avoid this painful condition.
    
Colon
The colon must be kept clean of accumulated acid wastes. Poisons collect on the colon walls and in cases of diarrhea or constipation will harden and reabsorb into the bloodstream. Good bowel action (complete elimination) must be done at least 2 times per day.
    
Lymphatic System
There are 600-700 lymph glands in the body. Lymph fluid carries nutrition to the cells and removes acid waste products. Lymph fluid flows best in an alkaline environment. When the body is overly acidic, it slows, creating one of the most chronic, long-term, life-threatening situations. Gradually, the lymph dries and begins to form very tiny to very large adhesions throughout the tissues. These adhesions can interfere not only with lymph fluid but with blood flow as well. Hindered lymph flow increases tissue acid storage. Not drinking enough purified water will also slow the lymph. Waste products from foods that are not properly digested are reabsorbed into general circulation via the lymphatic ducts of the small intestine. In addition, bowel movements that do not completely clear the body of its daily poisons are also reabsorbed.


How Negative Emotions Create Acidity:
 
Have you ever been so upset with someone or something that you get an upset stomach? All negative emotions create an acidic environment. Have you ever heard anyone say you are letting your problems "eat away at you" or "get the best of you"?
 
Fear is the underlining cause of most disease. It will undermine your life and your health. Fear causes anger. Anger causes hate. Hate will consume you with continual suffering. Love and understanding cleanse and heal the body creating an alkaline environment within you.
 
What Can You Do?
 

1. Exercise
Moderate exercise is alkalizing to the body. Excessive exercise (past the point of exhaustion) can create an acidic problem due to lactic acid buildup. People who are acidic usually feel worse from exercise because their detoxification organs are not working properly due to excessive acid in the tissues. Yet without exercise, acid and toxin buildup are likely.
       
2. Quality Air
As the saying goes - "every step you take, every breath you take ...".
If your environment is polluted with chemicals, dust, smoke, pet dander, mold, micro-organisms, then much of your energy reserve will go just in detoxifying. Today, even in the forest and near the ocean, the amount of negative ions are much lower than they were only a few decades ago. Also, since we sealed buildings to conserve energy and started making our homes and furnishings with synthetic materials, the number of cases of asthma and chronic fatigue have risen dramatically.
       
3. Food Cobining
Food combining is key to creating an alkaline environment because when you combine properly you reduce putrefaction in the body creating a more alkaline condition.
       
4. Alkalising Dietary Supplementation
When you purchase supplements you must ask yourself what your goal is and will these supplements actually help alkalize and remove acid from your body. Green drinks are very helpful in filtering out toxins and acidity in the body.
       
5. Alkaline Diet
Eating an alkaline diet is very powerful in making everything else work better. In general, it is important to eat a diet that contains both acidic and alkalizing foods. People vary, but for most, the ideal diet is 75 percent alkalizing and 25 percent acidifying (foods by volume).

Customer Reviews
If you are looking for excellent raw cuisine, or if you are interested in great vegan recipes, try this book. Having experimented with both for 20 years, I find this book to be among the best in either genre. Almost every recipe I've tried is truly noteworthy, but the living foods recipes stand out as both delicious and easy to prepare. Highly recommended -- by someone who is not big on angels, but who loves to eat well, and hates a lot of prep.

You will not find a better person to lead you into this heavenly way of being in the world. Cherie is that rare individual who walks her talk impeccably and authentically. Love infuses every interaction, every instruction and every recipe. Her light shines through every single page and you can't help but be warmed by it.

If you thought being vegan meant giving up cheese and creamy desserts, you are about to be enlightened. There isn't one meal you could name that Cherie can't replicate with a vegan substitute, and raw at that. Imagine eating chocolate mousse and not getting fat. Imagine a flat tummy from eating easily digested food and boundless energy from all the available nutrition your body was able to assimilate. All without one moment of sacrifice. If you're like me you'll actually prefer the taste and texture of the raw vegan versions of all your old favorites. This book gives you plenty of cooked meals too so the leap into raw vegan isn't so wide.

Beautiful On Raw - Uncooked Creations

By Tonya Zavasta

Paperback - 363 pages

Beautiful on Raw is the sequel to Tonya Zavasta's Your Right to Be Beautiful, which was nominated for 2004 Health Book of the Year by ForeWord magazine.

Beauty Is as Beauty Eats...

Discover a natural way of eating that can dramatically improve your appearance and your life!

Frustrated with costly, invasive or ineffective ways of improving your appearance?

In her eye-opening first book, Your Right to Be Beautiful, author Tonya Zavasta shared the natural way she helped herself become noticeably more attractive. How? With the raw food lifestyle.

Now with her new book, Beautiful on Raw, Tonya responds to the two questions most often raised by her enthusiastic readers: "Can you tell us about other women who achieved the same remarkable results? and "Where can we find recipes to help us make this transition?"

In Beautiful On Raw, you will read about the experiences of Tonya and 10 other women, ages 35 to 65. The stories of their astonishing results with the raw food diet will inspire you and help you see that you can do it too!

The book starts with Tonya's own amazing health and beauty transformation story and continues with many other womens stories. Inspirational in that they all cure health problems and become sleek and younger looking. The second half of the book is recipes which are presented in an unusual format that we really like. There is a page with the recipe and a page with lots of nutritional info about the main ingredient - what a powerhouse of valuable facts this is. Recipes sections are sprouting, juices, salads and dressings, living soups, appetizers, entrees, snacks, cookies, pies, cakes, shakes and smoothies. Try lusty, luxurious lasanga, pizza, meatless meatballs or satisfy a sweet tooth with macadamia cheesecake, chocolate sheet cake or blueberry pie.

Hate cooking? I do too. What if you learn that you do not have to cook ever again?

It is a well-known fact that the less food has been processed, the more sound it is nutritionally. So why process at all? Why not trust the Creator of human life with food as well? Why not recognize the laws of nature instead of looking for a way to go against them? To process food is an arrogant notion - we seem to be saying that God's menu needs improvement.

Human beings cannot create life and yet we assume that we can manufacture better foodstuffs. The only food fit for human beings is raw plant food from God's table such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. But we replace this ample and nutritious diet with the cook's concoctions.

By cooking our food we are killing nutrients that keep us alive and healthy. Cooking removes the goodness of food. Fresh fruits and vegetables have a life force that is carried by enzymes, the biochemical catalysts that constitute the difference between life and death.

Nature's plan calls for food to deliver its own enzymes to assist the body with its digestion. But enzymes are killed when temperature rises above approximately 118° Fahrenheit. Cooked food depletes the body's own enzyme reserve and curtails its rejuvenating power that has to keep you healthy, youthful and beautiful.

Tonya Zavasta overcame many obstacles to achieve her radiant health and beauty. With practical simplicity, she shares her story, showing how the principles of the raw food lifestyle can help you stimulate and sustain your body's rejuvenating ability, which will significantly improve your health and help you become truly beautiful.

But Beautiful on Raw contains more than just Tonya's experiences-it includes extensive interviews with other women who have achieved the same astonishing results. Their stories will inspire you with the confidence to realize that you can do it too!

Tonya and other Rawsome women discuss:

· What brought them to the raw foods lifestyle and the steps they took to get there
· The amazing changes they noted in their physical appearance and self-esteem
· What it is like to have other people respond to their age-defying beauty and radiant health
· Their personal beauty secrets and insights on celebrating youthfulness, health and wisdom with each coming year.

Beautiful on Raw makes this possible with 100 delectable recipes celebrating the 100 (and only) ingredients you'll ever need. You'll love making the…
· Simple delicious juices, living scrumptious soups, tasty appetizers, salads and dressings
· Flavorful entrees such as Lusty Luxurious Lasagna (using a "secret" alternative to pasta!), Vibrant Veggie Nori Rolls and Healthy Buckwheat Burgers
· Yummy raw desserts including Clever Carrot Cake (better than baked!), plus snacks, treats, smoothies and more!

Why not join the adventure and find a beauty that glows?


In creating these recipes great respect was exercised in the treatment of original "from scratch" ingredients. Every effort was made to preserve their color, taste and texture. You will love to prepare these simple but delicious servings without destroying the nutritional value of God's given food. This book will make it easier for you to follow the raw food diet and nature in turn will safeguard your health and beauty.

"I have to write you to tell you how much I love your new book, "Beautiful on Raw." Everyday, I am motivated to continue towards a raw food diet by something I read in your book. Your interviews with women who are, like you, succeeding on the raw food diet are inspirational. Your own journey is awesome - and you look so beautiful. Your recipes I have tried so far have been delicious. And, I am even more motivated to eat the truly healthy raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds after I read your descriptions of each in your book. Thank you for writing such a fabulous, encouraging and insightful book. I will certainly tell my friends and family about your book."- Angela Curtis

Confessions of a Body Builder

Perfect Paperback: 112 pages
Publisher: Spartan Enterprises, Inc., 3rd edition, May 2005

From the Author
I researched this book for over a year. I was introduced to these incredible whole foods, Spirulina and Chlorella over 4 years ago. As a vegetarian, I have never found a better source of protein, enzymes and other vital nutrients. I learned of Ionized Water 3 years ago and being in the bottled water business immediately saw its potential. However, I never imagined the powerful health and rejuvenation properties of Ionized Water. I'm living testament to its great qualities. I've never felt better.

I am not a body builder in the sense one usually thinks of a body builder. I do not sit in a gym with other muscular men and women and pump iron. While I do exercise vigorously everyday, the body building I refer to in the title of this book, and on the following pages, has to do with rejuvenating our bodies at the cellular level through the use of Nutrients and Ionized Water. What is accomplished by this is nothing short of slowing, if not reversing, the ageing process. Much to my amazement, it can be done!

Customer Reviews

"This book changed my life for the better. I understand health so much better than I did. I was doing everything wrong. But with the simple changes the author suggests, I have completely different changed my health. I haven't been to the doctor once since reading and I use to go constantly". Jeff

"I was just beginning to learn about different types of water and I came across ionized water and picked up this book. I really love the author's explanation. He breaks it down and makes everything he discusses very interesting. I have started drinking the water and it is great stuff. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone trying to improve their health or learn about health from a different perspective". Pat Johnson

"I can across this book while searching on Amazon for books on alternative health. I didn't know much about ionized water but this book taught me a ton and was really easy reading. I always knew that raw food were good for you, but I didn't really how important they were until reading this book. I would definetly recommend this to anyone interested in improving their health and general well-being." Jake McKenzie

Review

"In this book, an expanded revision of his 1992 work, Cousens endeavors to make his readers aware of how their food choices affect their bodies, minds, emotions, and spiritual life. He emphasizes there is no one-diet-fits-all approach, but rather a consciousness on the part of the individual of what works. He includes information on the oxidative, autonomic, ayurvedic, anabolic-catabolic, endocrine, blood-type, and acid base diet systems. In personalizing a diet, the individual needs to answer these questions:

• Am I emotionally stable after eating?
• Do I have increased physical energy after eating?
• Am I craving any foods?

"Cousens details studies where poor diets were fed to indigenous groups such as the Kurds, Yemenites, and Zulus. The indigenous people studied had been introduced to highly refined carbohydrate foods and suffered from degenerative conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. He points to a diet of fast, frozen, and processed foods, adopted by Americans and peoples of most industrialized nations, as one that is inadequate. He characterizes this diet as one loaded with refined sugar, white flour, and pesticides.

"The author establishes guidelines for healthy eating by recommending that people consume natural, whole, and organic foods and that the diet be primarily fresh, live raw foods. He advocates a high-complex-carbohydrate, low-protein, and low-fat regimen with attention to receiving adequate sunlight. Deep breathing, bathing, and contact with nature in the form of gardening or hikes all have therapeutic effects.

"In this era where so many things are condensed or encapsulated, reading a book with 850 pages is a daunting task. In this case, it's worth the effort. In Conscious Eating Gabriel Cousens has compiled a handbook that emphasizes the benefits of a raw food diet. He has woven together many philosophies from around the world and incorporated them into a body-mind-spirit program that will be beneficial to the individual and to all mankind. The book is a valuable reference tool that belongs in every vegetarian's library."

How to use DMSO to Relieve Pain, Increase Circulation, Repair Tissue Damage & Fight Degenerative Diseases

Excerpts
 
 

Please Note:  The following information is provided for educational purposes.  A qualified health practitioner should always be consulted in the matter of receiving treatment advice for an illness. 
 

Background

DMSO - dimethyl sulfoxide - is a simple by-product of the wood industry and is a solvent that can be produced in industrial or pharmaceutical grade.  Sulphur, the 4th most abundant mineral in the human body and has a long history as a healing agent. For centuries mankind has soaked in sulphur rich, mineral hot springs to help heal a variety of ailments. DMSO has variously been called a 'miracle' compound capable of relieving pain, diminishing swelling, reducing inflammation, encouraging healing and restoring normal cell function.  One of the most well known and exotic properties of this solvent is its ability to penetrate living tissue and transport other medicines in their integral state deep into the body.  For this reason, DMSO has been used by many in the treatment of burns and sprains, sports injuries, paralysis, arthritis, cancer, scleroderma and many of the degenerative diseases.
 

American doctor, Stanley W Jacob has worked with DMSO for many years and is considered one of the foremost authorities on the substance in the world.  He states the following with regard to the therapeutic potential of DMSO: "We've barely scratched the surface [of DMSO's capabilities], for this is a new principle in medicine.  We've only had three new principles in our century - the antibiotic principle, the cortisone principle, and now the DMSO principle - and the DMSO principle is the only one of our generation.  Despite all the controversy, my guess is that history will record it this way."   
 

When US Governor George Wallace travelled across the country to find pain relief from DMSO administered by Dr Jacob, the reputation of this painkilling solvent got a tremendous boost2.  Wallace had been confined to a wheelchair since he was wounded in a 1972 assassination attempt while campaigning for the Democratic nomination for President at Laurel, Maryland.  Wallace's discomforture was located in his flank, a condition which reportedly disappeared by faithfully dabbing DMSO over the affected area.
 

DMSO Goes Public

On 23rd March 1980 and again on 6th July of that year, the popular television program 60 Minutes reported on DMSO.  In a presentation entitled "The Riddle of DMSO", presenter Mike Wallace covered the anecdotal patient history of the solvent and interviewed its main critics at the FDA.  As a result of the broadcast, which reached the homes of 70 million viewers, the switchboards at Dr Jacob's office and others associated with the program were immediately swamped with up to 10,000 people figuratively crying, "Save me!  Save me from my pain!"  Pain victims sought out other physicians around the United States who were known to prescribe DMSO.  They arrived in droves.  Telephones in the offices of doctors and pharmacies in Florida, Oregon, Louisiana and Nevada rang busily for several days following the Sunday evening broadcast of 60 Minutes.  A subsequent wire service report about the FDA's refusal to approve DMSO appeared around the country in Tuesday's newspapers.  In his program footnote, presenter Mike Wallace stated, "Tomorrow morning in Washington, the House Committee on Ageing begins an inquiry into why DMSO is not available to all Americans for any appropriate ailment, including plain and simple pain."  The numbers of letters and telephone calls that came into congressional offices enquiring about the cause of DMSO unavailability were massive.  A sampling of the letters sent to just one congressman, Claude Pepper of Florida, are found in chapter 4 of my book.
 

DMSO - Bane of the Establishment

Dimethyl sulfoxide has had a battered thirty-year history completely out of proportion to its true track record.  Officially, DMSO has never been approved for widespread medicinal use because medical authorities declare that the quality of medical trials and research on the substance has not been up to statutory requirements.  Dr J Richard Crout, the chief FDA opponent to DMSO, reported that double-blind tests3 were mandatory before approval would be forthcoming from his agency.  Yet researchers cannot conduct double-blind tests on DMSO because of the distinctive odour produced by the product after application.  Within a few minutes of putting it on your skin, you can taste it on your tongue; it penetrates the skin and runs through the bloodstream so effectively.  The alternative reason for not approving dimethyl sulfoxide, according to some DMSO proponents, could also be a simple question of economics: DMSO, painkiller extraordinary, is a common by-product of the wood industry and cannot be patented to great profit by the pharmaceutical industry.  Ironically, even drug companies have had their DMSO INDs turned down.  
 

The Medical Community Divided

Because of the general public outcry about its ban in the United States, and of course because of Mike Wallace and his 60 Minutes, DMSO has become a household word and medical-political cause célèbre.  Those doctors among us who have been using the drug for twenty-six to twenty-eight years never dreamed that it would become a focal point in the continuing battle between individual freedom and the power of government.  My colleagues and I have been criticized, ridiculed and even persecuted in some medical circles for promoting and using DMSO.  But I, and others like me, have come to the conclusion, having observed establishment thinking for forty years, that the only way a truly revolutionary treatment principle can be brought to the patient is by appealing to the general population through the information media.  It is for this reason that I wrote the book, DMSO - Nature's Healer.
 

In spite of the rumours, DMSO has not been found unsafe for humans.  Any side effects are merely minor irritations.  DMSO stops bacterial growth.  It relieves pain.  As a vasodilator, the drug enlarges small blood vessels, increasing the circulation to an area.  It softens scar tissue and soothes burns.  DMSO's anti-inflammatory activity relieves the swelling and inflammation of arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and other musculoskeletal injuries.  DMSO has been found to benefit human body cells, tissues and organs in ways not yet properly understood by medical science.  For this reason, I believe DMSO is the 21st century's newest healing principle with a very wide range of usefulness.  It represents an entirely different way of treating diseases.
 

DMSO and Cancer

Cancer seems to respond well to DMSO.  At Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Charlotte Friend MD has turned cancerous cells into harmless, normal ones in the test tube by putting them in touch with the DMSO solutions.  DMSO is routinely used by alternative cancer clinics in Mexico to transport laetrile intravenously into the body.  Because of extremely promising clinical results, research is still ongoing on a privately funded basis into DMSO's potential role in the breaking up of tumours and the killing of metastatic cancer cells in its own right.  Yet the United States Food & Drug Administration and the UK Medicines Control Agency continue to forbid the advertising and retailing of DMSO for any medicinal purposes save one: for the treatment of the rare urinary bladder condition, interstitial cystitis.  
 

As reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in November 1988, twenty cancer patients with extravasation of anthracycline (destructive secretions from tissues of the toxic chemotherapeutic agent anthracycline onto the recipient's skin with the potential to form cancerous ulcers) were treated on a single-arm pilot study with topically-applied 99% DMSO and observed for three months with regular examinations and photographs.  DMSO was topically applied to approximately twice the surface area affected by the extravasation and allowed to air dry.  This was repeated every six hours for fourteen days.  In no patient did extravasation progress to cancerous ulceration or require surgical intervention, as is usual with this toxic chemotherapeutic agent for cancer.  The authors of this report suggest that ulceration was statistically likely to have occurred in at least 17% of these patients.  The only side effects reported from DMSO usage included a burning feeling on applications, subsequently associated with itch, redness, and mild scaling.  Six patients reported a characteristic breath odour associated with oysters.  The oncologists stated that topical DMSO appears to be a safe and effective treatment for the cancer-related condition, anthracycline extravasation5.
 

Numerous drugs dissolved in DMSO retain their therapeutic activity and their specific properties over a long period of time.  DMSO not only maintains but strengthens and multiplies the action of the drugs dissolved in it, thus permitting the administration of lower doses than normally required to obtain a satisfactory response.  In organ banks around the world, organs and tissues are stored and preserved in DMSO so that they are available for transplanting and grafting.  Tissues such as red blood corpuscles for transfusions and semen for artificial insemination are preserved in this manner.
 

As a penetrating carrier of drugs, DMSO is unsurpassed.  It easily carries necessary pharmaceuticals to any part of the body for therapeutic effect.  It passes through cellular membranes and tissues.  It is for this reason, among many others, that DMSO is properly described less as 'a drug' by those intimate with it, more as a new and little understood therapeutic principle.  As Dr Jacobs reported to an assembly of the American College of Advancement in Medicine, DMSO is more effective when used in conjunction with other medications which it can deliver throughout the body with spectacular ease.  This can occur even when DMSO is applied topically, and the other medication ingested orally or intravenously. 
 

For instance, DMSO will carry hydrocortisone or hexachlorophene into the deepest layers of the skin, producing a reservoir that remains for sixteen days and resists depletion by washing the skin with soap, water or alcohol.  DMSO mixed with hydrogen peroxide 9% solution has proven highly effective in the treatment of oral and genital herpes when applied topically to the affected areas.  Periodic outbreaks of the virus have been known in many cases to cease altogether with regular application.   
 

An interesting observation is that the application of DMSO to one affected joint or area often leads to pain relief in some other location.  DMSO has systemic effects.  It is a depressant to the central nervous system and, of course, it reaches all areas of the body when absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream.
 

Perhaps the effect DMSO has had on the lives of countless thousands may be summed up by the case of Ruth Lewis of Sarasota, Florida.  Ruth, aged sixty-four, was in so much pain from rheumatoid arthritis that she couldn't walk without the aid of a four-legged walking device.  Pain had been her constant companion for over twenty years.  When she recently sustained a back injury, she was told by her physicians to have at least six months total bed rest.
 

Realising that this could spell the end of her walking days for ever, the determined Ruth had her son and husband physically carry her into the Douglass preventative medicine clinic in Marietta, Georgia to undergo a course of treatment with DMSO.
 

"I had previously experienced many months of severe pain in my hips and legs, visiting specialists, diagnostic clinics, hospitalisation in traction and other procedures," said Ruth.  "When I entered the doctor's office for DMSO treatment, I was unable to put both feet on the ground.  After two-and-a-half weeks of intravenous DMSO treatment, I walked out of that office without any help whatsoever - no cane - no support at all.  
 

"I had not been able to close my right hand completely for over a year.  It even kept me awake at night with severe pain.  But after the IV, topical and oral DMSO treatment, I can now close my hand tightly.  The arthritis has not returned.
 

"I cannot put into words what this drug has done for me.  I highly recommend it.  I saw many people come and go during my stay; all walked out well."

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...

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.

by Victoria Boutenko

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.

Food is one of the most powerful addictions in life. At 900 billion dollars per year, Americans spend more on food than on their homes! It is their second greatest living expense surpassed only by the medical care they sometimes need to correct their dietary overindulgence. With all this food and overconsumption, is it such a wonder that the #1 best selling drugs in America are names like Tums, Pepto-Bismol, Alka-Seltzer, Rolaids, and Digel?

Man can survive on only one third of his daily food intake. The other two thirds goes to benefit the health insurance and medical care industries.

The best of all medicines are rest and fasting. - Benjamin Franklin

About the Authour
Steve was pronounced "Sproutman" in a 1977 Vegetarian Times Magazine feature article that explored the why's and wherefores of his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Steve is still a believer in living foods and one of the most prominent spokespersons for sprouting.

Steve got interested in sprouts after a 20 year effort to correct chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic changes in diet and within two months of eating a strict "living foods," vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms disappeared. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit) and fasted for as long as 100 days.

Steve is the inventor of two home sprouters, the Flax Sprout Bag and the Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He is the author of several health and diet titles including Juice Fasting and Detoxification, Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and the forthcoming Wetter is Better and Power Juices.

Reviews
Fasting is the "Elixir of Life". This book is a classic on juice fasting. It shows you how to enjoy this delicious and wonderful elixir. I have guided more than a 1,000 people through juice fasting and from now on I will be recommending this book to all the people who are fasting at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. - Gabriel Cousens M. D., Director, Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. Author, Conscious Eating and Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet.

"Fasting and detoxification are the missing links in American nutrition. They're the most important healing tools I use. Meyerowitz does a fantastic job in explaining these fundamental rejuvenating concepts for everyone to understand."- Elson Haas, M.D., author of The Detox Diet and Staying Healthy Shoppers Guide.

Steve lives and practices what he believes in. His sincerity and knowledge is evident as one peruses the pages of this very enlightening work. - Dr. John Heinerman, author of Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Healing Juices.

"Nature has carefully packaged its nutrients into the cells of fruits and vegetables. Fresh juices are the fastest route to those nutrients. Steve Meyerowitz provides a succinct guide to the art and health of using juices." - Donald W. Novey, M.D., author, Clinician's Rapid Access Guide to Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

"Dear Steve. I don't know if you remember me, I attended a workshop of yours about 12 years ago. I have long been a fan of your sprouting books including your hysterical kitchen garden cookbook. But that is not why I am writing you now. Today I am on the 22 day of fasting and I can't believe that I'm doing this. What is even more incredible is that I feel quite normal. Really, better than normal. And why I'm writing is mostly to say thank you. Your new fasting book is awesome. I've read Ehret and Airola and they're great. But yours is easily the best fasting book I've read. I always knew I needed to detoxify. But how?--that was scary for me. Your book helped me like a guide holding my hand." -  B.J. Williamson, New York, NY.

"I just want to thank you again for your books. You infuse such enthusiasm into your writing. I can feel the pages smiling at me. Your fasting book inspired me to begin my health renewal program which I can truly say is the best thing I've ever done for myself. At 48, I am more active, more alert, more flexible than my 30 year old sister-in-law. Even my memory has improved and more unbelievable, my eyesight is slightly better, too. My sister-in-law wants to know what I'm taking. "Nothing!" That's the point! It's what I'm not taking! I never even considered fasting until I landed upon your book. I stopped after achieving 50 day--a true marathon. But now I'm religious about one day a week. Please put me on your mailing list for your workshops in my area and any new book announcements. Again, a heartfelt thank you for your dedication and all the support you've given (through your writing) me." - Meloni T. Jennings, Scottsdale, AZ.

Living Cuisine: The Art & Spirit of Raw Foods

Only
!

By Renée Loux Underkoffler

Paperback: 512 pages

Eating raw isn't just for naturalists anymore. Today, health-conscious eaters are filling their plates with the foods nature has already prepared. And these foods go well beyond the sprouts, carrots, and celery typically associated with this type of diet.

In Living Cuisine, celebrated raw chef Renée Underkoffler shows how varied, exciting, and healthy raw-foods cuisine can be. She introduces the many benefits of eating raw and offers guidelines for incorporating this healthier regimen into one's lifestyle. She provides clear, step-by-step instructions for raw-foods processing techniques-juicing, sprouting, culturing and fermenting, dehydrating, and even blanching. This unique resource includes thorough information necessary for a foray into raw-foods living

This extensive volume provides a compendium of information on the chic raw foods movement. Underkoffler, a Maui-based restaurateur and workshop facilitator, devotes several hundred pages to descriptions of fruits, vegetables and the other essentials of a raw foods diet; the economic and social effects of eating raw foods; and the health benefits of adhering to such a diet.

There are more than 300 tantalizing recipes inspired by a wide range of ethnic and regional foods. These beverages, soups, salads, appetizers, side dishes, sushi, entrees, and desserts are all delicious and simple to prepare. Indonesian vegetable Pad Thai in Coconut Sauce, Golden Butternut Soup with Provençal Pesto, Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms and Crumble Apple Strudel Bundt Cake are all dishes that even non-raw converts might savour. Renée offers little tips to help soften the strict rules of eating raw. For example, she explains, "A wonderful secret of raw foods preparation is to serve soup in a warmed bowl. It allows the flavors to bloom a little bit more and keeps the soup warm without having to heat the soup to unhealthful temperatures upon serving." For readers who don't mind lukewarm bisque, or the significant effort that goes into preparing it, this book offers nice variety and valuable information.

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.

Quantum Eating - The Ultimate Elixir of Youth

Only

By Tonya Zavasta

Paperback - 453 pages

When a beautiful young girl turns your head—Wow! When a radiant fifty years young woman turns back the clock—How?

Here are the ready-to-use secrets on acquiring superior health and a youthful glow, while avoiding the unattractiveness of aging.

Quantum Eating is the gate to health and longevity. Questions about aging which have baffled thinkers and scientists for centuries are answered in clear, straight talk mingled with attainability and hope. This truly mind-energizing book is filled with fresh insights that challenge our most basic assumptions.   

This book addresses vital, fascinating topics: the quantum body we occupy…raw foods as concentrated sun energy…the circadian rhythms of vital organs…should we sun-block the sunlight?…breathing for optimum weight…oxygen therapies…and many more. It explains how you can be malnourished while eating a lot of healthy foods, how you can be dehydrated while drinking a lot of water, how you can be shortening your life by using certain supplements and how you can be aging your body by eating at night. This book is candid, intimate, and intellectually illuminating—on the very edge of new science.

Quantum Eating exposes the limits of the mechanical thinking and materialism that dominate most modern anti-aging research. Quantum Eating is about stepping away from a three-dimensional view of the human body and into the multi-dimensional world of healing possibilities. It offers rare optimism about aging. An easy, natural “elixir of youth” can be achieved without being a slave to traditional medicine.

Life is a grand adventure. This book offers a way for us to reach for an optimum level of well-being in order to live the grandest life we can. Pour these new ideas into the chalice of your life, and watch it overflow with pure joy and vitality!

"Dear Tonya,
Congratulations on your book! I couldn't put it down, it's revolutionary, brave, radical, and well-written!"-
Victoria Boutenko, author of 12 Steps to Raw Foods and Green for Life

"Tonya, I want to say how much I loved your book: this is by far the best of your books! I am amazed at your ability to use wit, humor, and word plays in English though it is not your native tongue. Most of all, I really thought there was not much else for me to learn about raw eating! But I got a real paradigm shift from your writing about 'heavy water.'  You have indeed dared my husband and I to take this raw diet to a higher level!!!"-
Susan Schenck, author of The Live Food Factor

"Wow! Quantum Eating is amazing! One of the best books on raw foods and living life simply and most healthfully. You are a sheer genius. I am recommending Quantum Eating to absolutely everyone. Congratulations on your research and insights! Would it be alright if I quote you on a couple of things, like the circadian rhythms and perhaps dry fasting?"- Karen Ranzi, author of Creating Healthy Children

 I have been glued to your new book! I have read your first two books as well. This new one is sooo cutting edge! I don't want it to end and will read again when I finish. I have been about 95% raw for about 2 years and I guess have not gone completely 100% because I am still cooking for my family. Your writings have been such an inspiration to me and I really sense your passion for this lifestyle. I am excited to start implementing what I have learned from Quantum eating!- Marissa Valdez

I just finished reading "Quantum Eating," and am now re-reading it out of sheer fascination with the quality of information there.  It is truly a masterwork with intriguing ideas and should be required reading for every raw-fooder out there. I found the caliber of your information outstanding and of great use. So many raw-food books repeat things that most of us already know. But your book repeatedly broke new ground. - Starr Spencer

Gabriel Cousins

Paperback, 544 pages
Other Information:  illustrations
Published In:  United States, 17 November 2003

Because of our acid-producing diets, environmental pollution, antibiotics, excess oestrogen in the environment, and personal and world stress, candida and fungal infections are rampant today. Medical researchers have found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet, combined with environmental pollutants and stress, can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body collectively known as chronic degenerative disease. Here holistic physician Gabriel Cousens provides a dietary regimen that may help reverse this process by introducing whole, natural, organic, and raw foods into the diet. These restorative "live" foods can eliminate dangerous toxins, reverse chronic disease and bring back health and vitality.

Rainbow Green Cuisine presents the first sophisticated, gourmet international cuisine to be based on highly edible natural organic live food, along with a relatively low-sugar and low-mycotoxic approach.

This eclectic cookbook shares 250 delicious vegan recipes from chefs at the Tree of Life Cafe. Dishes include Avocado Salad with Rosemary, Green Dragon Broccoli, Raw-violis, Lavender Milk, and Carob Coconut Cream Eclairs. International entrees, juices, and aromatherapeutic remedies are also featured.

Reviews

"Gabriel Cousens, M.D., has once again contributed to the much-needed re-education of humanity. The research and practical advice, along with the recipes from the Tree of Life Cafe in Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine, help people awaken to a new understanding and regain control of their internal environment."
 - Christopher Yashpal Jayne, N.D.

"Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine describes the holistic healing process of biological alchemy. It is a gift for us in how to live in these biologically toxic times."
 - Richard Harvey and Mary Huston, Directors of Life Works

Raw food is more than a diet. It’s a lifestyle and a movement. The stories of weight loss, increased energy, healthy-looking skin, and better digestion are seemingly endless.

With dozens of recipes accompanied with beautiful, full-color photographs, Erica Palmcrantz and Irmela Lilja prove that eating raw foods can be simple, inexpensive, and delicious. No one should have to sacrifice time, money, or flavor to enjoy the astounding health advantages of going raw. Learn how to soak and sprout vegetables and nuts to increase the nutritional value, what types of kitchen tools are best for preparing raw food, and which foods to have on-hand for use in raw recipes. From creative salads to spicy burritos to chocolate mousse, every recipe will broaden your raw-food horizons. Complete with recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, and side dishes, Raw Food is an innovative approach to a wholesome way of eating.

Customer Reviews

"I received this book in eager anticipation and was not disappointed. I have found the recipes in this book delicious and satisfying. Green Beauty and Pico de Gallo are just a few of my favorites. I can make the Chia Custard Shake and feel totally full when I need something in the middle of the day. Ruby's Smokin' Hot Tomato Soup is so good. Wonderful book. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to incorporate healthy and tasty alternatives to their diet." SaderMom

"Penni Shelton has created this wonderful book, in part, through the experience of real people in real life following her program. And I have to say, I think that alone makes it an excellent resource for raw food info ... because we're all looking for real results. Penni's writing style is also warm and encouraging ... she's just a delightful and inspiring writer.

This book is organized around 3, 7, 14 and 28 day cleanses. But in this case, a "cleanse" is neither harsh nor strict with so many raw food recipes. The recipes are easy to follow and the dishes are visually stunning and delicious.

I really enjoyed the real life stories of people who've already done this program. They're genuine and open in telling about the changes that have happened in their health and their lives after following this way of eating and living.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a genuine and uncomplicated introduction to the amazing health benefits a raw food lifestyle can help create." Lisa Viger

"The Raw Food Cleanse is an easy guide for anyone who is interested in upping their health game which features a test group of people who actually participated in a trial cleanse. The information is clear and encouraging for newbies to the raw movement as well as seasoned followers. There are juice feasts of various lengths so you can test the waters or dive in for a long term fast. In any case, there are a multitude of delicious recipes to create for during your fast and a bevy of taste titillating recipes for post cleanse. I have alot of raw food recipe books and the recipes in this book are not overwhelming as some of the books I have. Even if you are not gung ho about cleansing I would recommend it merely for the recipes. It is the perfect affordable choice for anyone who wants to increase their intake of fruits and vegetables in a easy yummy creative way!!"  A. Harper
