Hidden Sugars & Inflammatory Grains

Conventional advice has focused on low-fat diets for weight loss and heart disease prevention, but again and again, researchers are confirming that refined carbohydrates from sugars and grains is the primary culprit behind skyrocketing obesity rates, along with related diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Who Can Benefit from Colon Hydrotherapy?

It should be noted that most people need a series of colon irrigations . . . not just one. There may be considerable gas expelled during the first few treatments. It usually takes a few treatments before one starts dislodging old encrusted feculent matter.

Constipation – What You Need to Know

MCT Oil ~ You want it in your life!

What is MCT oil? MCT simply stands for medium chain triglycerides, as opposed to long chain triglycerides (LCT), which are found in most foods. MCT is comprised of primarily caprylic and capric fatty acids, and is a light-yellow, odorless, translucent liquid at room temperature. MCT oil occurs naturally in coconut oil and other foods. Compared to longer-chain fats, MCTs are absorbed more easily since there’s less work for the body to do breaking apart carbon bonds. MCTs are smaller, so [...]

The Healing Crisis – what is it?

The process of natural healing sometimes includes a healing crisis, also known as the detox reaction, the cleansing reaction or the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. During a healing crisis, you can feel even worse than before you started your detox program. The good news is that this reaction is likely a sign that you’re getting better.
