We’ve all been told by our dentist how important flossing and brushing are, but the case for good oral hygiene just keeps getting stronger. Oral hygiene is not a new concept by any means. In Ayurveda, swishing with herbalized sesame and/or coconut oil has been practiced for thousands of years. Neem twigs were frayed and
When the Organic Consumers Association found traces of the herbicide RoundUp, aka glyphosate, in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, little did they know that was just the tip of the iceberg… Most people think of Ben & Jerry’s as a healthy brand of ice cream but, upon closer inspection, they are not much different than
The human body has evolved to protect itself from toxic exposure, opportunistic bacteria, fungi, viruses and other pathogens who are poised to take advantage of broken down or worn out immune barriers. Today, we dump 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals into the American environment each year and 72 million of them are cancer-causing. Monsanto’s
This article was originally published in Spirituality & Health Magazine. Today, millions of people without celiac disease are electing to be gluten-free, not because they are actually allergic to gluten, but because they have food sensitivities, or simply because wheat has been labeled a dietary no-no. Yet there is compelling scientific and clinical evidence that
In America, we dump 4 billion pounds of toxic environmental pollutants into the environment each year. Recently, one study found that 65% of the rainfall contains glyphosate or “Roundup.” Even worse, is the notion that omega-6 fats or vegetable oils are somehow good for our health. These directly congest the liver, as do the pesticides,
Average Reading Time: 3 minutes and 33 seconds While wheat is not an approved GMO food anywhere in the world, Monsanto conducted experiments from 1998 to 2000 using GMO wheat in the Pacific Northwest. This variety of genetically-modified wheat, called MON 71700, was designed to be resistant to the herbicide, glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup.

Average Reading Time: 7 minutes and 30 seconds Gluten-free experts make what seems to be a compelling case against wheat using a variety of so-called “wheat toxins” as the evidence that wheat – a grain early humans started eating 3.4 million years ago – should be taken out of our diets permanently. In this article,
An unexplained explosion in gluten sensitivity is affecting more than 18 million Americans today. While wheat is not a genetically modified crop, new studies are finding an interesting link between the consumption of GMOs and today’s rising rate of gluten intolerance. GMOs – an acronym for genetically modified organisms – were introduced into the American
Some 180 million pounds of Roundup are applied to US soils each year. Interestingly, the active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, is designed to kill just about everything except genetically modified plants like corn, soy, beets, cottonseed and canola. For years, government agencies and agricultural manufacturers have considered glyphosate relatively safe for humans. But a new
