SPONSOR AN AD? > PAST ISSUES > BLOG > OPT IN/OPT OUT
Today I want to continue to share our experiences with the community Sageeara.com, a health and wellness site we have been following and participating with for the past several months.
Fall is a perfect time to follow a fast. Currently here at the office, we are doing the Master's Cleanse--just like raking leaves from the yard this time of year, it's time to prepare the body for a new season by giving the digestive system a good cleaning and rest. It's a great way to detox both the physical and emotional body of toxic waste, leftover debris in tissue and joints--known as inflammation that equals pain to the body, but easily discarded with a 10-day fast.
Each month the Sageera.com site invites authorities to speak via a teleseminar on a variety of health related topics. This month's topic is appropriately, "Fall Detoxing" with Dr. Elson Haas--perfect online support from a knowledgeable source on the benefits of resting the body with either a fasting regime or a detox diet. Both are discussed during the teleseminar, with additional written and recorded information provided through the www.sageear.com site.
We are now committed consumers of Udo's oil--not a salad is eaten in this house with anything else, thanks to the Sageera.com site. Dr. Udo and site owner, Marianna Bozaman, conducted an informative interview regarding the benefits of flax seed oil, rich with essential fatty acids. We decided to give it a go, did, and loved it! Without the Sageera.com site, we would not have made the change. Being yoga people, we are willing to try anything to help the tender joint syndrome, and it has. My skin is softer and omega fatty acids are thought to help prevent age-related memory loss, and who wants that, right?
If you are an information person and care about your health, but would prefer to not buy more and more books that end up half read, the Sageera.com community for you. I listen to the teleseminars as time allows--they are recorded on the site, I read the material related to the topic I am researching, and have access to resources that build with information each and every month.
Marianna's focus is on the mind, body and spirit, and I love this. She embraces the notion that when we care enough to feel good always by caring for ourselves--all parts of our being--we have more to offer the world. I feel the same way. Visit the site, send me your feedback, take on a membership, and I know you will love it.
In vibrant health,

Dr. Elson Haas: The Detox Doc...
For over 25 years, Elson Haas, M.D., has been coaching, cajoling and inspiring clients for over 25 years, after experiencing a detox diet in 1975. Since then, he has written several books, his latest being The False Fat Diet. In it he explains that a lot of what we think is "fat," is actually accumulated toxic waste. He lays out in detail how to rid the body of this uncomfortable load through decision-making, eating-style changes, and adopting a 70% fruits and vegetables diet that satisfies and creates the level of well-being impossible on the standard American diet... >>> MORE
Life Coaching with Charly Emery...
This month Charly gives her insight into asking for what we want. "As you set your goals, define your desires and identify the value within them, are you comfortable with asking for them? One of the most valuable questions you can answer for yourself is, how you feel about asking for what you want. Do you ask with ease or experience a lot of difficulty? Asking or expressing our desires challenges our situations and relationships, giving us more information about our situation. Sometimes we are afraid to ask because there is great potential that the truth we will discover is something we don't want to know... >>> MORE
F.Y.I. - Interesting Health News Tidbits
Re-growing the chompers...
Conventional wisdom emanating from the dental profession for many decades claimed that it was not possible to re-enamelize teeth--or for the body to re-constitute tooth enamel, such as filling in cavities. These days the latest research and theories are proving this wrong.
The leader of research and re-mineralization is a dentist by the name of Dr. Leon Silverstone who practices and teaches at the University of Iowa. Dr. Silverstone has published innumerable articles about how teeth re-mineralize, along with several other researchers including a dentist by the name of Coleridge. Today, many medical professionals are aware of the research that proves cavities can re-mineralize and heal.
Here are the facts:
This info is in all of mainstream medical literature, and in professional and research journals. And it is "re-mineralization." Make sure your dentist is operating under these new findings, and if you haven't already, consider switching off of commercial pastes and gels to clean your teeth. Pastes and gels contain abrasives such as chalk and sugar, which damage the tooth enamel, keeping it from re-growing. We've found two excellent products that fit the bill: Tooth Soap and OraMD Essential Oil Formula. We have used both, and have been absolutely impressed with the results. >>>> Check it out!
- Areas of decay in the tooth structure are caused simply by the calcium and phosphate ions leaving the tooth.
- The acids and toxic waste products leach these minerals right out of the tooth and they go into the solution in the saliva--salvia normally has high concentrations of calcium and phosphorous in it when a person's diet and everything else is healthy.
- When these calcium deposits leave the tooth structure and they're in solution what's to stop them from being re-deposited? Well, in reality they are being re-deposited.
- When a cavity is forming some of the calcium and phosphorous ions are going away and some are being re-deposited.
- If calcium and phosphorus are going away faster than they're being re-deposited, then the cavity is getting bigger.
- If calcium and phosphorus are being deposited faster than they're being leached our of the tooth, then it is healing.

Raw superfood of the month: Camu Camu...
Camu camu (Mycaria dubia)is a bush that grows in black water rivers, especially in those abandoned courses called "cochas," ecosystems of great social and economic importance for the Amazonian jungle of Peru. The fruit contains powerful phytochemicals with health benefits, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and more Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world. The camu-camu fruit is approximately 2 centimeters in diameter and has a purplish red skin with a yellow pulp. Camu camu fruit contains 30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange. It has astringent, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, emollient and nutritional properties, and also contains important levels of beta carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin.
Camu camu is listed second in effectiveness as an anti-depressant. One alternative health care provider in New York City has had twenty patients on Zoloft and Prozac gradually wean themselves off these medications while taking camu camu and they have succeeded in avoiding depression. Good results have also been noted for patients who are anxious, talkative, and those with panic attacks.
Traditionally, camu-camu has been used to:
Camu camu berries especially support the functions of the brain, eyes, heart, liver and skin. >>>> MORE

Aspartame: Ant killer...
For all the dire health problems associated with aspartame--the worst of them being cancer--the original "anything-but-sugar" substitute may have an ideal purpose to exist, not as a food additive, but as an ant poison...
Already aware of aspartame's origins as a toxic chemical, a health-conscious consumer with an ant problem emptied one packet of aspartame in the corner of each of her bathrooms two years ago. The "sweet" solution worked brilliantly, as she's seen no signs of carpenter ants crawling around for the past year.
Aspartame may be just the thing for getting rid of fire ants (impervious to many poisons) too, although this solution takes a bit more effort. Initially, fire ants ignored their aspartame treat until a light rain moistened it. After the rain, however, the fire ants came back with a vengeance, taking the aspartame back to the mound by the hundreds. Within two days, any evidence that fire ants existed at all, save for an empty mound, vanished.
No mystery--aspartame works like a pesticide, as the asparctic acid contained in this toxic product is a well-documented excitotoxin that causes specific brain cells to become excessively excited to the point they quickly die, just as both kinds of ants did. Makes you wonder if aspartame is a far safer, better alternative to getting rid of lawn and home pests than the average toxic pesticides found at your neighborhood hardware store... >>>> SOURCE > BANNING ASPARTAME

A greener laptop...
Another case of "greenwashing" has been uncovered as of last month after laboratory screening to find the greenest laptop computers. Despite their past claims, major toxic chemicals--from lead to PVC--have been found in brand-new laptops from five of the biggest manufacturers. What now?
Some of the best-known laptops are contaminated with some of the worst toxic chemicals. Of the five top brands Greenpeace tested, Hewlett-Packard and Apple laptops showed the worst contamination levels.
Results for HP revealed high levels of a number of chemicals in its components, in particular the highest levels by far of PBDEs (a class of Brominated Fire Retardants) including something called decaBDE. HP's website claims it removed decaBDE from its products years ago. Either HP is lying or HP needs to ask its suppliers some tough questions. Lead was also found in the soldering.
Apple has recently launched its new range of MacBooks, but what you also get with a new MacBook is the highest level of another type of toxic flame retardant, tetrabromobisphenol A a known endocrine disruptor. Apple claims it is looking for alternatives, but for now it appears to be using far more of this toxic chemical than its competitors.
Dr. Kevin Brigden, of the Greenpeace Science Unit, was alarmed by the results: "During the sampling process it was remarkable to note that, whether Mac or PC, once you by-pass the sleek and cool design of these computers, hazardous substances are a component common to all."
Electronics is a fast moving, innovative industry that can respond quickly to users' wishes and new trends. It's high time it moved quickly to make greener, longer-lasting products to help reverse the growing trend in toxic e-waste. >>>> SOURCE
Organ of the month: KIDNEYS...
The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse estimates that each year, nearly 100,000 Americans are newly diagnosed with kidney failure. More than 100,000 currently have End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) due to diabetes. And, according to the U.S. Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, an estimated 650,000 Americans will have kidney failure by 2010 and will require renal replacement therapy, either ongoing renal dialysis or a kidney transplant. Without one of these therapies, ESRD is fatal. Yikes! Well, it's good to know there are ways to keep your kidneys healthy to avoid going down that road.
Part of knowing how to care for our kidneys is knowing what they do. The kidneys excrete a variety of waste products produced by metabolism, including the nitrogenous wastes: urea (from protein catabolism) and uric acid (from nucleic acid metabolism). The kidneys regulate the pH (potential hydrogen--acid/alkaline balance) of the blood, and ultimately control blood pressure.
Paramount to good care of the kidneys is to reduce the toxic load they have to deal with, especially proteins and chemical contaminants which can build up in the kidneys, slowing their function, increasing acidity and raising blood pressure. So, consider lightening the diet--instead of eating meat everyday, try going vegetarian for a day or so a week. A vegetable/fruit-based diet allows the body system alkanize via the kidneys, lowering blood pressure, and contributing to a sense of well-being. Also, drinking enough water so that the urine is a light color of yellow. A whole lot of water is not necessarily good for the kidneys, and it is always better to drink small amounts of water throughout the day, rather than gulping down a quart or two because you're thirsty. This just creates kidney stress.
Also, consider using our Carrot Top Tea to help clear the kidneys and urinary tract (as well as the prostate). We have had great success in lessening kidney-related lower back pain, and bladder issues by using the tea. Carrot tops along with the parsley in our formula have a very calming affect on the nervous system, and contribute to alkanizing the blood, taking stress off the kidneys. >>>> TRY SOME!
Maca: Superfood of the Andes...
Maca is a superfood-food herb with an outstanding ability to increase energy, endurance and strength. Maca is a favorite of raw-foodists, vegetarians, adventurers, extreme athletes, dessert chefs and food alchemists. Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. The maca plant produces leaves that grow close to the ground and the plant produces a small, off-white flower typical to the cruciferous family. The main part of interest for this plant, however, is the radish-like tuberous root.
Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca, like goji berries and ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but if it is not, it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body's overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.
Peruvian research claims that maca improves memory, increases oxygen in the blood, improves the function of neurotransmitters and increases libido. One of the researchers heading current studies on maca, Peruvian biologist Gloria Chacon de Popivici, Ph.D., suggests that maca alkaloids act on the hypothalamus-pituitary axis and the adrenals. She has theorized that by activating these endocrine glands maca is able to increase energy, vitality and libido. Other researchers indicate that the effect of maca is more basic and that when the body is well-nourished, libido rises and depressing attitudes lower.
Maca has major flavor notes that are sweet and full. It has some minor taste qualities reminiscent of other cruciferous vegetables; these add some mildly spicy elements. Maca is a powerful superfood-food-herb and should be consumed with respect. If you really love maca, use 1-2 tablespoons each day and it is recommended that you take a week off during every month of consistent use.
That being said, in toxicity studies conducted in the U.S., maca showed absolutely no toxicity and no adverse pharmacological effects. In animal studies, the more maca animals consumed, the stronger and more sexually active they became. In spite of all this, moderation is advised.
Today maca is becoming increasingly popular in Peru among native and non-native people, and the effects of maca are creating market demand in Japan, Europe and the United States. Maca cultivation is on the increase, a number of government experts and agencies are actively promoting maca agriculture and development, and maca is poised to be a major botanical product on the international superfood and herbal scene.
