Enzymes and more April 29, 2009

Good day listmates,
One of my favorite websites is http://enzymestuff.com/. There is a wealth of knowledge on this site and it is all easy to understand.
I use enzymes everyday. In fact our whole family does. I believe everyone needs them. Our bodies are equipped with enzymes, each serving a specific protein. I won’t get into them all but there are enzymes for meat digestion, fruit digestion, dairy etc. What happens is our body uses up many of our enzymes at an early age due to the fact that our foods today are processed and we our enzyme supply needs to work extra hard. We rarely eat whole, raw foods. Toxicities in our environment and in our foods also destroy enzymes.
Nature knows what it is doing because many foods contain enzymes but we destroy them through high heat like pasteurization, and cooking Once again we need to implement more RAW, WHOLE foods. Foods the way nature intended them to be!
Enzymes come in all different shapes and sizes and sorting out the mess can be confusing. So please look at Enzyme Stuff and learn a bit more.
Also another company, Enzymedica is sending out free samples of their new product, Digest Basic.
The number is 1-888-918-1118.
The promo code is DP0409. I just called and it was no problem. They took my address and will send them out next week.
As always I ask that we educate ourselves. Reading and attending lectures is the best way.
The Autism Treatment of America is currently doing a free Autism Grass Roots Tour throughout the country.
Go to www.AGRT.org for details and locations.
Once again, don’t forget if you are not getting enough raw,whole  foods into your diet, Juice Plus is the only product I have found that has proved to be effective. 17 raw fruits, vegetables and grains, juiced and compressed into a powder form. I recently tried the gummies…OH MY. They are so good. They do however contain a small amount of corn syrup ( not high fructose ) so for those that may have an issue with corn syrup, the capsules are your best bet.

Blessings and Namaste, for a healthy life!!!

Hello Listmates,
Can you believe it is March already???
Where does the time go?  I am still cleaning up the mess from Christmas!
Last week I had a garage sale and it was wonderful. What a great way to clean up and make a few bucks.
I tend to give away more things than I sell because I believe we should recycle, and reuse. I would rather give it away than throw it away. Also when the sale is over, I pack up the van with what is left and drive over to Good Will.
Ok, I also bring some things back into the house after I realize, “I could use this”
I do less self gratifying shopping too. Sure it feels good to pick up something cute for myself or the house, but now I ask myself,” do I really need this? ” Not only will we save money by shopping smarter but we can help lessen the load of our already overflowing landfills.
So clean house, have a garage sale and shop less. You will find that once your house is cleaner, you won’t mind staying home so much. I used to get out ( and shop) because I hated looking at my mess all the time. Now I can sit back with a good book or cup of tea and not feel so creeped out. Clutter in your home usually equals clutter in your life.
 
Here are some declutter tips:
 
Many of you have heard about the 3 families who recently lost their fight in vaccine court but we rarely hear about the ones who win. The media doesn’t like to upset their sponsors who are mostly pharmaceutical companies. But many do win in court. . Below is an article about a recent WIN, followed by a  US Today ad, sponsored by Generation Rescue, letting it’s readers know about the court decision.
 
 
Another Autism Case Wins in Court:

I hate to report these things because truthfully, they make me sick. But we must stay educated and aware!
 
Babies Exposed to Harmful Toxins in Liquid Medicines
 
 
I just subscribed to YES magazine and I love it. In this month’s issue there is an article called ‘A World of Grace’  The link below is an excerpt from that article about all the different ways we say Grace in this world. You may enjoy reading it. No matter what our culture or religion, we really all want the same thing.
 
 
 
Adding More Raw Fruits and Vegetables to Your Diet
 
 
Can’t get your family to eat the now recommended 7-9 raw fruits and vegetables?
For eight years I have been approached by people trying to get me to buy the perfect vitamin/supplement/ cure all. Although I believe some supplementing is necessary for medicinal reasons I believe we can and should get our nutrients from our food. However, in today’s world, we simply are spending less and less time in the kitchen. We are looking for a fast fix and  many healthy meals take time to prepare; time Americans no longer have. I finally found a product I love and believe in. ( never buy anything without researching it first) It is Juice Plus. This is NOT a vitamin. it is a whole food supplement. JP contains 15 raw fruits, and vegetables plus 2 grains dehydrated and put in capsule or chewable form. It is a great way to get those essential phyto-nutrients that studies prove fight cancer, heart disease, etc. .
Visit my website and read the studies on Juice Plus.
If you are interested  in the Children’s Health Study, please email me privately. For each adult order, Juice Plus will provide  a free supply for a child age 6-15. All you need to do is fill out a questionnaire every 6 months on your child’s health.
 
Happy March, Happy Spring Cleaning and Cheers to Good  Health.
