All That We Need October 16th, 2006

The world began as a perfect place, and we were given all that we need. Even though the world is no longer a perfect place, who’s to say that we don’t still have all that we need. Here are just a few examples of “medicines” found in nature.

  • Aspirin was one of the greatest discoveries ever, but it was found in the bark and leaves of the willow tree.
  • Cranberry juice will prevent a urinary tract infection.
  • Apple cider vinegar lowers blood pressure and takes away the pain and restriction of movement caused by arthritis.
  • Eating turkey will put an insomniac right to sleep.
  • Garlic will lower the bad cholesterol.

When there is a choice, the natural way seems best.

Food & Medicine from Nature

Natural remedies do affect the body and can be strong “medicine.” Using two at once can result in each cancelling out the other or in getting too much of a good thing.

 Meat for Vegetarians

Meat for Vegetarians? June 15th, 2007

Many people have given up eating meat, for a variety of reasons. One reason is that they think meat does not digest well, if at all. Proponents of “food combining” say that the real problem is what you eat with your meat.

Pepto Bismol Their rule for eating meat is to not combine it with starch, another protein, cheese, acid foods, sugars, or fats. That eliminates the cheeseburger, bacon and eggs, pepperoni pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, and most of the staples of the American diet.

So if you’ve turned vegetarian simply for better digestion but miss the occasional steak, you might consider trying a small one with a leafy salad.
