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.

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.

Heartbreaking Fact

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.

5 Tips for Skin Detox & Beautifying Elixirs

Your skin covers the entire surface area of our body, making it the largest organ of elimination. 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.

Lymphatic Cancer & Lymph Node Detox

Lymphatic Cancer & Lymph Node Detox

Lymphatic Cancer & Lymph Node Detox

Cancers that occur in the lymphatic system are known as lymphomas and they are on the rise. “The body’s lymphatic system contains a fluid that picks up bacteria and traps them in nodes, where white blood cells attack the invaders. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas, which are the most common form of the disease, have increased by more than 70% in the past 40 years, according to experts. It has been speculated that certain carcinogenic chemicals might be the cause. In the last 20 to 30 years we have seen a drastic increase in the problem.” (1) Non-Hodgkin lymphomas are the 10th most common cancer among women and seventh in men.

“Weight loss, sweating, fever, and enlargement of lymph glands are symptoms of both non-Hodgkins lymphoma and Aids,” said Dr. Omran Bedir Gatee, an endocrinology, diabetes and metabolic disorders consultant at Burjeel Hospital. (1)

The Cinderella Cure

Cellulite to Cancer: The Cinderella Cure

Like Cinderella who had to clean up all the messes for her stepsisters, the lymphatic system must clean up messes made by nearly all other systems of the body.  The lymphatic system is usually regarded as the lesser sibling to the circulatory system, at least in this country, but not the Far East and Europe.

It’s actually crucial in your ability to heal and prevent disease. It’s a supportive detoxification system and works with the immune, digestion, and nervous systems.  Many holistic health care professionals believe a toxic lymphatic system is an underlying contributor to everything from cellulite to cancer. Indeed, cancer ofter metastasizes through the lymphatic system. This system has multiple purposes: two important functions include bathing cells with nutrients and carrying away waste.
