Mitochondria, Our Batteries For Life

Mitochondria are 1.45 to 1.8 billion years old according to fossil records (1). Through the years of evolution, they ended up in most of our cells. Mitochondria are intracellular organelles and like energy factories, like batteries, they use nutrients from our food and oxygen to create energy to support life. Mitochondria appear like a separate cell, within our cells, and they even has their own set of DNA (mtDNA) which we inherit only from our mother. Mitochondria exist in different numbers in different cell lines. The highest being the heart where 40% of each heart muscle cell by volume [...]

Auto-immunity, the what, where, why and how

My favorite question is "why?".  I ask it many times in my mind during an intake until I really get to the root causes of the health concern.  When we ask ourselves, our body, "why is this happening to me?", we can often find the answers ourselves.  Our body is always trying to communicate to us what it needs and doesn't need.  With awareness of the wisdom of the body, even in its dis-ease, we learn, grow, have hope, and enlighten ourselves and all that we touch.  We learn to trust the body, its vital energy to heal itself, and [...]

Lose weight and feel great by eating more fiber

The weight loss and health benefits of fiber are vast.  When we eat fiber, food passes through the body quicker, less fat is absorbed.  We have a decreased appetite.  Our cholesterol level is decreased.  We use more calories because we have to chew longer and the stomach takes more time to digest.  Best of all, fiber is detoxifying to the body. Dietary fiber is that part of plant cell walls, such as lignans and polysaccharides, which our bodies cannot digest.  There are two main types of fiber: insoluble and soluble.  The best known insoluble fiber is cellulose.  An example [...]

Food additives and preservatives

Did you ever really look at the labels of some of the foods you eat?  Have you ever wondered WHY all that stuff is in there?  I often find myself looking at labels, then I put the box or bag back on the shelf!  We are meant to eat live foods, foods that are close to life, not those that have been rolled, pressed, shaped, put in plastic, added chemicals from drums, put in boxes, shipped across the world... well you get the picture! I am a big fan of eating local, shopping at farmers markets when possible, and buying [...]
