Chew your food...

In my opinion, other than increasing the amount of water you drink, the next best thing that you can do for your health is to chew each bite of your food 15-20 times so that it is definitely mixed with saliva.

Enzymes are produced and required for digestion. Enzymes are full of life.

It's amazing what health benefits you'll notice right away!

In everything you do, give thanks!

What exactly is Splenda?

It is sucralose which is made through a process that selectively replaces three hydrogen-oxygen atoms for three atoms of chlorine on the sucrose molecule.

In a simple sentence, you would just as soon have a pesticide in your food as sucralose because sucralose (Splenda) is a chlorocarbon. The chlorocarbons have long been known for causing organ, genetic, and reproductive damage. The testing of sucralose reveals that it can cause up to 40 percent shrinkage of the thymus: a gland that is the very foundation of our immune system. Sucralose also causes swelling of the liver and kidneys, and calcification of the kidney.

No artificial sweetener will be safe to the body. It simply causes the body to work harder longer.

Take the time to read a label and make your own drinks.

Use 100% juice.
Add sparkling water.
Add lemon.

Whatever you do, give thanks.

Vitamin Water

What’s Really Lurking in a Bottle of Vitamin Water?

The average person picking up a bottle of Vitamin Water thinks this is simply flavored water with added vitamins and minerals. Sounds like a good thing, right? Well, in reality a bottle of Vitamin Water contains 33 grams of sugar, including crystalline fructose. So the average consumer will believe they are doing something healthy by choosing Vitamin Water over soda when the reality is that there is not much difference.

Vitamin Water has over SIX teaspoons of sugar in it. That's just in one drink which is a small part of your intake for the day. At the end of a month, how much will that add up to?

What is crystalline fructose? According to The Sugar Association, “Crystalline fructose is produced by allowing the fructose to crystallize from a fructose-enriched corn syrup.” While many people mistakenly believe that fructose is an acceptable form of sweetener, it is far from healthy. Refined man-made fructose raises your triglyceride levels which are the chemical form of fat found in your foods & your body. Continue to add this to your daily diet then you will live with those levels high all the time.

Moderation is key when it comes to sugar. try to limit to once a week or a couple of times a month. Remember, it's NOT the only form of sugar that you will put in your body.

Drink pure water and get your vitamins from the food you eat.

Whatever you do, give thanks!


Pimples are a sign of imbalance and the answer lies in finding that balance.

1. A good cleanse for the colon will strengthen the liver & kidneys so that toxins flush through their proper channels & not only their face & back. It can be very gentle & you'll never know it!

2. Increase water & decrease/eliminate soda & juice.

3. The body is saying that there is an important need to process fats properly & it's having a hard time with what's coming into the body. The best way to do that is to decrease bad fats...chips, crackers (a few won't hurt) BUT to increase olive oil & cod liver oil in their diet.

4. Wash the face with a gentle cleanser.

With teenagers, there are a couple of good NSP products that will help to balance hormonal changes as well.
