Even better than treating your mother, wife, grandmother, aunt, or whomever else you call “Mom” to a fancy meal at her favorite restaurant is preparing it yourself. In place of or in addition to your favorite Mother’s Day traditions, a home-cooked, organic meal is a sentiment that she surely won’t forget this year.
Maybe your mom is not the detox pro that you are, or maybe she’s a health nut too. Either way, pampering her with a meal that is healthy and tastes delicious will surely impress any mom. After all, wasn’t she the one who always told you to eat your vegetables?

There’s a stigma attached to colon-related procedures in the medical field that dredge up uncomfortable thoughts about laxatives and tubular microscopes being inserted “up there.”
Thanks to Hollywood, colonics became a celebrity trend that is now endorsed by many holistic and conventional health care practitioners. Now, more than ever, we can start talking about colonics, a practice that is changing the way we think about our health.
So, what is colonics? Basically, colonics, often referred to also as colon hydrotherapy or colon irrigation, is the practice of removing waste and... Read More
A typical steak dinner may take your body up to a week to digest. You’re digestive system has to work hard to break down the components of the meal. Fruits and vegetables, on the other hand, usually take 1-2 hours to digest.
Why? The answer is enzymes. To understand why certain foods are digested more easily than others, knowledge of how enzymes work is essential. Enzymes are basically active proteins that act as catalysts for biological chemical reactions. In the body, digestive enzymes are responsible for breaking down molecules as part of the digestive process.
Our bodies naturally... Read More
As of February 18th 2008 the number of children infected during this recent measles outbreak in San Diego, California is 11, the county was still waiting for confirmation on the status of the possible 12th child. This outbreak adds fuel to the vaccination debate that rages across this nation - from the recent "death march" through the courthouse for jabs in Maryland to this measles outbreak that was started by a child whose vaccination record is current; this debate will never be put to rest as long as parents have voices.
Parents on both sides of this issue are as vocal as anything... Read More
In July of 2007 I submitted, and had published here, an article called "Losing it." It was fairly well read and received some nice comments by readers who obviously are caring people. I referred to a friend named Dominic living with what has since been diagnosed as severe depression along with ADHD and bi-polar disease. A real triple threat. Dominic is one of my middle names. The piece was autobiographical.
I come forward with this information now not for sympathy but to try and spread understanding of what it is like to live this way in the hopes that fewer of us will be regarded as... Read More
Anything dealing with the brain that triggers the anger emotion is science to me. It's a known fact according to doctors that your heart rate goes up and so does the blood pressure. It could lead to a heart attack at any age or race. I've heard of this situation where this one fella who I used to know past out for boiling up so much. He was an ex-marine, but I don't know if that had anything to do with it. It's also instinctive to use your anger when your're in a threat. It's a natural response, but mismanaged anger will result in someone being hurt.
On the other hand, we can't physically... Read More
I saw Michael Moore's film "SiCKO" recently, and after reading a ton of stuff about Kaiser Permanente within the last few days, I am quite frankly shocked and appalled at what I have learned. It's not like I'am surprised. I have some first-hand experience with this HMO and it's not pleasant. A few years ago, my left knee started hurting. It was a dull pain at first, but then it got progressively worse, to the point where I was limping. I went to Kaiser, where I had my health insurance at the time, and after pleading with them, they agreed to take some x-rays. The doctor was really nice and... Read More
