Oatmeal Is Not Just For Eating!

I found a great article about oatmeal on iVillage today.  There were numerous uses that oatmeal has other than eating.  I am very interested in healing my skin and health issues with the things God placed here on Earth.  I believe that if our body can be healed with natural products, then it is more beneficial than synthetic materials and chemicals. 

Please read the article in the link below and let me know if you try any of the remedies.  I am going to try all of them.  I must let you know, natural remedies don't work as fast as the "quick" fixes you can buy.  With my experience, natural remedies heal the problem and do not build a dependency as most "quick" fixes have done for myself.  I remember being a slave to acne washes for my skin issues.  When I would attempt to wean myself from the chemicals, my acne would return with a vengeance!  I did not heal my acne until I focused on a full body cleanse, colonic and clean eating regimen.|06-24-2013|&_mid=1322334&_rid=1322334.55000.160507

iVillage is a great site!  The education that I have received from this site is priceless.  All of this great information for free!  Please support and sign up for the newsletters that they send out.

God bless!

Who Knew Asparagus Was This Healthy!?

I love asparagus!  The long stemmed veggie is tasty and easy to make.  Richard Kahn's newsletter - - has a great article about all of the benefits of asparagus.  Richard Kahn offers a great newsletter that gives the health benefits of various foods and offers a recipe.

Nutrition Facts
AsparagusAnti-InflammatoryAsparagus not only tastes delicious, but is also a wonderful source of nutrients for a healthy body and mind. Asparagus contains many anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as asparagus saponins and the flavonoids quercetin, rutin, laempferol and isorhamnetin, which all help to combat arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune diseases.


Glutathione, found in asparagus, contains three amino acids (glumatic acid, glycine and cysteine) that combine into one molecule that serves as a powerful oxidation-reduction agent in our bodies. Along with the antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin A (beta-carotene), zinc, manganese and selenium, the glutathione in asparagus fights against free radicals that cause aging and "cellular rust." Cancer
It is well-known that chronic inflammation and oxidation of the body's cells can lead to a variety of different cancers. With its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, asparagus is a robust fighter against bladder, breast, colon, lung, prostate, ovarian and other cancers.
Heart Health
Folate, a B complex vitamin, is essential for a healthy cardiovascular system and is found in abundance in asparagus (one cup contains 66% of the RDA of folate). Firstly, it is involved in a biochemical event called the methylation cycle, which allows for the proper transcription of DNA, the transformation of norepinephrine to adrenalin and the transformation of serotonin to melatonin. Secondly, folate regulates the amino acid homocysteine, which in high levels can be a strong risk factor in heart disease. And finally, B vitamins such as choline, biotin, and pantothenic acid manage our blood sugar levels by effectively metabolizing sugars and starches.
Birth Defects
Folate is also essential for proper cellular division. Healthy servings of asparagus can prevent a folate-deficiency, which has been linked to birth defects such as spina bifida (a congenital defect in which the spinal cord is exposed through a gap in the backbone).
The amino acid asparagine, found in asparagus, is an effective diuretic and has been historically used to treat swelling, arthritis, rheumatism, and PMS-related water retention.
Diet and Digestion Inulin, a carbohydrate in asparagus, encourages the growth of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli, two bacteria that boost nutrient absorption, lower the risk of allergy and colon cancer, and help prevent unfriendly bacteria from taking hold in our intestinal tract. Furthermore, one cup of asparagus contains over 11% of the RDA of dietary fiber and almost 10% of the RDA of protein. The healthy fiber and protein content of asparagus stabilizes our digestion, curbs overeating, maintains a low blood sugar and prevents constipation. And finally, one cup of asparagus also contains only 43 calories. Vitamin K
Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K (providing 114% of the RDA in one cup), which is necessary for the synthesis of osteocalcin, a protein that strengthens the composition of our bones. Furthermore, vitamin K prevents calcium build-up in our tissue that can lead to atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Vitamin C
As mentioned above, asparagus contains a healthy dose of the strong antioxidant vitamin C (over 30% of the RDA). Other health benefits associated with vitamin C are a lower blood pressure, healthy immune system, and resistance to age-related ocular diseases, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.

Lovely Lemons - great article from Heart of Christmas Farms

Lemons are sooooo great for our body.  They improve our digestive system, remove dark spots from our skin and taste great when made into an ade on a hot summer day.  These yellow fruits are affordable and easy to attain.  If you live in an area that is abundant in lemon trees, you may be able to grab one from a tree overhang during your morning walk.  Please read this article from Richard Kahn's blog  Also, sign up for the newsletter - great information and recipes.

Nutrition Facts

The Alkalizing Powerfood
Lemons are acidic to the taste, but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact they are one of the most alkaline-forming foods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body.
Lemons are a favorite all over the world and an essential food in kitchens everywhere.
“We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” –Alfred E. Newman
16 Health Benefits of Lemons:
1. Lemons are alkalizing for the body: Lemons are acidic to begin with but they are alkaline-forming on body fluids helping to restore balance to the body’s pH.
2. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work against infections like the flu and colds.
3. Your liver loves lemons: “The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile,” says Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden. Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier.
4. Cleans your bowels: Lemons increase peristalsis in the bowels, helping to create a bowel movement thus eliminating waste and helping with regularity. Add the juice of one lemon to warm water and drink first thing in the morning.
5. Scurvy is treated by giving one to two ounces of lemon juice diluted with water every two to four hours. In 1747, a naval surgeon named James Lind cured scurvy with fresh lemons. To this day, the British Navy requires ships to carry enough lemons so that every sailor could have one ounce of juice a day. In the past, lemons were replaced with limes; this is where the English got their nickname “limeys.” Watch this video: “Scurvy Pirates and the Lemon of Love
6. The citric acid in lemon juice helps to dissolve gallstones, calcium deposits, and kidney stones.
7. Vitamin C in lemons helps to neutralize free radicals linked to aging and most types of disease.
8. The lemon peel contains the potent phytonutrient tangeretin, which has been proven to be effective for brain disorders like Parkinson’s disease.
9. In India, Ayurveda medicine values the lemon as a fruit and for its properties. It is sour, warm, promoter of gastric fire, light, good for vision, pungent and astringent.
10. It destroys intestinal worms.
11. When there is insufficient oxygen and difficulty in breathing (such as when mountain climbing) lemons are very helpful. The first man to reach the top of Mt. Everest, Edmund Hillary, said that his success on Mt. Everest was greatly due to lemons.
12. Lemons have powerful antibacterial properties; experiments have found the juice of lemons destroy the bacteria of malaria, cholera, diphtheria, typhoid and other deadly diseases.
13. Blood vessels are strengthened by the vitamin P (bioflavinoids) in lemon thus prevents internal hemorrhage. Also, making it useful in treating high blood pressure.
14. The symptoms of eye disorders, including diabetic retinopathy have been shown in research to improve due to the rutin, found in lemons.
15. Lemons contain 22 anti-cancer compounds, including naturally occurring limonene; oil which slows or halts the growth of cancer tumors in animals and flavonol glycosides which stop cell division in cancer cells.
16. According to The Reams Biological Ionization Theory (RBTI), the lemon is the ONLY food in the world that is anionic (an ion with a negative charge). All other foods are cationic (the ion has a positive charge.) This makes it extremely useful to health as it is the interaction between anions and cations that ultimately provides all cell energy.

Oh Where Oh Where Has My Real Food Gone...

Readers digest listed 15 things that you should never buy again.
No surprise, cured meats was on there; the author agrees that this food is linked to cancer, high blood pressure and numerous additional health issues. And a shock to me was bottled teas! I drink those like water - love to sneak them into the movies (my guilty pleasure!) to avoid the sugary drinks. But I was defeating the purpose. The article states that these s0-called better alternatives to soda has more sugar than soda and a piece of pie!!!!! Another dangerous drink listed, energy drinks. The article states this concoction is linked to "heart attacks, convulsions and even death."
Do you know what cellulose is? I didn't know until this article informed me it is wood pulp! What the what!? The things our government allows in food amazes me.
And who knew preformed meat patties (turkey burgers, hamburgers) have been known to have more e.coli than the grounded version. Wow.
All this said, we have to be sooooo careful about what we put into our bodies. Those trusted "healthy" and "better option" claims aren't always true. We are in the era of convenience. We'd much rather by something prepared and pop it in the microwave or grab some fast food. It is no secret that this way of nourishing our bodies is detrimental to our health and development. If the thought of preparing meals makes you stress about the time that it will take, include family time and prepare a meal together. Get your friends together, have some drinks, chat and divide your bulk items into single servings for the rest of the week so you can grab and go. Two ways to get that family and friend time that has been thrown to the wayside in our effort to work ourselves ragged. Face time and hearing loved ones voices are soothing in comparison to the electronic substitution that we have all fell victim to.
For one week, try this exercise:
Substitute microwave/fast foods with real nutrition. Spend time preparing real food with friends and family; enjoy the face time instead of the impersonal text/email. Trust me, your body and soul will thank you!!!!!!!!

Here's a list of seasonal veggies and fruits for January to help with the grocery list. Usually items in season are more affordable and more nutritious. If what you love and have a taste for is not in season, try the frozen version - items are frozen immediately and maintain most of its nutritious value.
Asparagus Celery Lemons Tangelos
Avocado Chard Mushroom Tangerines
Beets Cherimoyas Mustard  
Blood Orange Dates, Mdgool Navel Oranges  
Broccoli Kumquats Onion, Green  
Cabbage Grapefruit Passion Fruit  
Carambola Kale Peas, Green  
Cauliflower Kohlrabi Strawberries
