Chocolate Balls

I get questions all the time about how to use pulp leftover from juicing. I’ll bet you never thought about adding it to desserts like Beet Brownies (Sugar Knockout) and Chocolate Balls that I feature here that are made with carrot pulp. And why not?  My friend Vicki Chelf gave me several of her scrumptious desserts for my book Sugar Knockout that she developed for her book Pulp Kitchen.

Splenda Linked to Cancer

Splenda Linked to Cancer

Splenda Linked to Cancer

Splenda has been found to release cancer-causing dioxins in food.  A new review study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health reported that researchers from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) discovered that sucralose (Splenda) releases cancer-causing dioxins in food when baked or heated, which is one of its primary marketed uses. The Department of Pharmacology at Duke University challenges a number of claims of Splenda’s alleged safety, including the claim by its manufacturer, McNeil Nutritionals, that sucralose passes through the body completely undigested. Evidence shows not only that this is false. The authors warn that when sucralose is used for cooking at high temperatures it generates chloropropanols– chemicals that may be linked to a higher risk of cancer.  Sucralose was also found in the study to alter the expressions of P-glycoprotein and cytochrome P in a manner similar to organochlorine drugs. This suggests that sucralose is actually more of a drug than it is a food additive. It has no business being indiscriminately added to food without a proper drug warning.

Brain Detox Juices

Since I’ve been coaching the 5 Day Juice Fassst and 30-Day Detox groups, I’ve heard from many people who have ditched their brain fog along with the toxins. These programs detox the brain along with the rest of the body. I checked the research to see if any of the juices were especially helpful in detoxing the brain. It turns out a number of them are especially good.

Reverse Alzheimer’s Naturally

Dr. Dale E. Bredesen (UCLA) found that Alzheimer’s is a complex disease affected by sleep, diet, and exercise.

“These all — and other things — all contribute to this critical balance in plasticity,” said Bredesen.

In the study, ten memory-loss patients, some with brain-scan-confirmed patterns of Alzheimer’s, participated in a small UCLA trial called MEND (Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration).

In the UCLA protocol, patients made dramatic lifestyle changes. They avoided simple carbs, gluten and processed foods. They increased their fish intake, took yoga and meditated. They were instructed to take melatonin, get adequate sleep, incorporate vitamin B-12, vitamin D-3 and fish oil.

Depression & Antidepressants

It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing that a dear friend of mine committed suicide this week. She was on an antidepressant because she’d been depressed and wasn’t sleeping well. She was given the antidepressant to help her sleep. Instead it clouded her judgment and she took her life with those pills. I am absolutely devastated. That is why I’m writing this newsletter to warn you. Beware of antidepressants. The drug my friend was on has a high incidence of suicides. And if you aren’t sleeping well, use something besides an antidepressant to sleep. Warn everyone you know. These drugs are dangerous.

It has many important functions, including the regulation of body temperature and the elimination of toxins through sweating. It aids all the other channels of elimination during the detoxification process, so it is vitally important that the skin pores do not get clogged. And, because it absorbs what we put on it, it’s important to use natural, organic products as much as possible.

Cleanse Your Colon

Cleanse Your Colon

Cleanse Your Colon

The goal of colon cleansing is to remove waste, toxicity, and congestion from the bowel. One of the most frequent bowel problems that people experience in the U.S. is constipation. A constipated intestinal tract means the transition time of toxic wastes is slow. The longer the transit time, the longer the toxic waste matter sits in the bowel where it can putrefy, ferment and get reabsorbed. The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have one or two other meals worth of waste matter sitting in your colon at all times. Disease often begins with a toxic bowel. Those having fewer bowel movements are creating a fertile breeding ground for parasites, yeast like Candida albicans and other unfavorable bacteria. Infrequent or poor quality bowel movements over an extended period of time may be hazardous to your health.
