Dear Readers,

Book: Udo Erasmus - Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill spacer.gif "Get inspired!" is the message of the day. Our article about Dr. Udo Erasmus makes this plainly clear as the major key for caring for and keeping your health. With inspiration anything is possible, including vibrant health, pain-free days, and adequate energy to manage and succeed with a full daily schedule.

After listening to Dr. Erasmus and reading his book, Fats that Heal and Fats that Kill, we placed our order for his Organic Flax Seed Oil. We will be taking the recommended dosage of one tablespoon for every 50 pounds of body weight daily, and trying the oil in place of olive oil on our daily green salad, and in our morning green drink, "Nature First Food" raw, organic, superfood from David Wolfe's; and promise to keep you posted on our continued progress with healthy living, improved vitality and pain-free days.

With the skyrocketing gas prices, annoying as it is for all of us, we have devised a plan: Less driving, more walking and a heightened awareness of whole, organic foods in smaller quantity. Organic whole foods have 40% more nutrition then standard run of the mill sprayed produce. The cost is greater, but the trade off is worth it, with less toxic load, increased food value and so the need for less food daily. Our vegetable garden is going in this week and we promise some photos later in the month on its transformation as well as ours.

Keep moving, stay inspired and remember: we are what we eat, quoting from our most recent interview with David Wolfe. When we cleanse and heal our body with daily awareness and righteous acts, our acts are experienced in our world. In these not so small daily acts our Mother Earth experiences our cleansing and healing, and in turn cleanses and heals in unison.

Many blessings and continued wellness,

Shay Shay

Featured Article

Erasmus A nearly fatal accidental pesticide poisoning 25 years ago, spurred Udo Erasmus to delve deep into his research on dietary fats. This university geneticist ended up earning his Ph.D. on the subject, and writing two books. He has since become the "Father of Unrefined, Organic Flax Oil," campaigning the world about the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids. Of course, he also touts whole foods, vegetarianism, and an inspired attitude, as part of a holistic nutrition program for anyone. But, he says, "If I had to pick one to focus on, I would pick the Omega 3 fatty acid simply because it is the most sensitive, the most damaged by processing. And, it is the most commonly too low in the greatest number of people." >>> MORE
F.Y.I. - Interesting Health News Tidbits

  Hug a lonely heart...
Lonely Heart spacer.gif Loneliness is bad for the heart, suggests a new study. It shows that loneliness increases the blood pressure of those nearing retirement age to the same degree as smoking or a sedentary lifestyle. Chronic feelings of social isolation are associated with as much as a 30 mmHg rise in a person's systolic blood pressure by the age of 65, which could easily push their systolic blood pressure over 150 mmHg, the medical definition of hypertension. The study showed that this is independent of other confounding variables such as smoking, drinking, socioeconomic status and body mass index.
spacer.gif "While we haven't conclusively proven why this happens, the pieces are starting to fall into place," says John Cacioppo, a psychologist at the University of Chicago who conducted the research. Previous work by Cacioppo showed that college students who felt socially isolated had increased vascular tension--a narrowing of blood vessels that increases resistance to blood flow. Their young bodies could compensate, so the condition did not lead to abnormally high blood pressure, but Cacioppo speculated that the same would not be true in older individuals.
spacer.gif "Loneliness isn't just stress or depression," he notes. "It's a unique physiological and psychological reaction." >>>> MORE

  The meat-industrial complex...
Animal Feeding Operation spacer.gif Barely 5 percent of U.S. farms now raise 54 percent of the country's beef and dairy cattle. Corporations now produce 98 percent of all poultry. Small to mid-size family livestock farms are going the way of the dodo. While "local food movements" and a resurgent interest in grass-fed and free-range animal production are gaining traction and deserve our full support, they will never be enough to stem the "blood-dimmed tide" of the livestock industry.
spacer.gif Across the nation, factory farms of all types are wreaking environmental havoc. A 1995 North Carolina manure spill killed 10 million fish and closed 364,000 acres of coastal shellfish beds. In 2004 the Iowa Department of Natural Resources recorded ammonia levels near a hog factory that were six times the recommended health standard. In California's San Joaquin Valley, air pollution from factory dairy farms is a major reason that the region's children have asthma rates three times the national average. In eastern New Mexico--the state's factory dairy farm belt--recent research discovered antibiotic-resistant bacteria in dairy yards. For these reasons, the American Public Health Association has urged all levels of government to impose a moratorium on new Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) until a comprehensive environmental and health assessment can be conducted. >>>> MORE

Now, imagine you're Gumby...
Gumby spacer.gif Use your mind to help your muscles go from stiff to supple the next time you're doing a full-body stretch. Put another way: pretend you're Gumby. Researchers have found that people who vividly imagine lengthening and moving their arms or legs find stretching easier to do. And that could lead to greater flexibility gains. So close your eyes and envision your muscles getting longer and looser whenever you stretch.
spacer.gif In a U.K. study, three groups of volunteers (30 people in all) went through a 4-week flexibility program. While all the groups emerged with more limber bodies, two of them applied their minds as well as their bodies to the process. One group visualized moving the limb they were stretching, while the other imagined the physiological process of stretching--trying to "see" their muscles elongating. Although no difference was found in the degree of flexibility improvement, those using the stretching visualization were much more comfortable doing it. >>>> MORE

Beets. It's what's for dinner...
Vegan Firemen spacer.gif In this health-conscious state capital, sometimes called the People's Republic of Austin, maverick behavior is nothing out of the ordinary. But when Jimmy John's, the local sandwich joint, names a sandwich after you, "the Engine 2 Veggie Sandwich"; when People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals gives you an award for "Animal-Friendly Firehouse of the Year"; and when people call out to passing fire trucks, "Are y'all the vegans?" even Austin is taking notice.
spacer.gif The five firefighters of Team C at Firehouse 2--Rip Esselstyn, James Rae, Matt Moore, Derick Zwerneman and Scott Walters--now eat vegan, taking turns whipping up plant-based fare like meatless and cheeseless pizza, pasta primavera and spinach enchiladas. A routine cholesterol test left Specialist Rae, 37, shaken. The American Heart Association ranks anyone with a level of 240 or more high risk; Specialist Rae's hit 344. "I was floored, scared," he said. "I had no clue."
spacer.gif For the other 10 men in Firehouse 2, the vegan diet has not gone down so easily. Inside the freezer are a bag of cheeseburgers, French fries and a package of beef next to vegan offerings. One firefighter even put up provocative posters on the walls, including one that reads, "Beef. It's What's for Dinner."
spacer.gif "Seventy percent of our calls are medical," he said. "Every day we see the ravages of people eating to their heart's content." If not for Specialist Rae's cholesterol, he said, "there would have been someone else, someone prediabetic or obese who would have prompted us." >>>> MORE >

Disease mongering...
mongering for profit spacer.gif According to a set of essays published in the Public Library of Science Medicine, drug companies are systematically inventing non-existent diseases, or exaggerating minor ones, in order to sell more of their products. The practice turns healthy people into patients, and places many of them at risk of medically induced harm. Minor, normal problems, such as the symptoms of menopause, have been "medicalized" into treatable illnesses, and risk factors like high cholesterol are being treated as diseases in their own right. Conditions including female sexual dysfunction, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and "restless legs syndrome" have all been exaggerated and promoted by companies hoping to sell drugs. Even ordinary shyness is often defined by drug companies as a social anxiety disorder to be treated with antidepressants. Richard Ley, of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, pointed out that some countries, including Britain, have legal safeguards against drug industry "disease mongering." Most of the criticisms, he argued, apply primarily to countries like the United States, where drugs can be advertised directly to patients. >>>> MORE
