Eat Away Your Acid Reflux Before It Eats Away You

Fast food, industrially processed food, and the terrible dietary advice dispensed by the health care industry are a primary cause of many disorders. Add too much sugar, some soft drinks, eating on the run with a quick breakfast of donuts and coffee, and you are well on your way to digestive-related disorders, including acid-reflux disease—also known as Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease or GERD.

About 60 million Americans already have acid-reflux (one out of five people) and many people have acid-reflux without knowing it. In addition to the typical symptom of acid-regurgitation, there are many other lesser-known symptoms including hoarseness, belching, chronic throat clearing and sore throat, persistent coughing, difficulty swallowing, nausea, asthma, wheezing and persistent hiccups in adults. In infants and children, frequent ear infections, excessive crying, nausea with or without vomiting, excessive coughing, respiratory problems, refusing food, excessive belching and burping.

Nature’s Fast Food That’s Better than Raw: Sauerkraut and Lacto-Fermented Vegetables

Being a natural and effective probiotic, fermented vegetables will assist in healing digestive disorders—a major root cause of many health problems. Lactoferments like sauerkraut are highly recommended by more and more nutritionists and health practitioners everywhere. You can make this medicine right at home for the cost of a cabbage.

About four years ago, news from a biolab in Indonesia experimenting with the bird flu viruses, discovered that many of the infected chickens who ate sauerkraut was cured in a few days. The news was broadcast in St. Paul, MN on the local TV news and it caused such a demand for sauerkraut, local stores sold out and sauerkraut makers, for a few days, were busy trying to find more cabbages to buy.

Also, we have so many bloggers, webmasters and business owners in the field of natural foods and health, I have tacked on a short survey to help them (and the Journal). Thank you for your responses. The results of the survey will be posted here after the first 100 responses.

In the National Spotlight: An Ohio Natural Food Store

Taken at the Open House at Wholesome Acres Market

FIRST thing that pops up on my laptop over my first cup of coffee this morning is about to be presented to you. It was as if Christmas came early this year for me and for you. Santa (that’s me) and Mrs. Claus (Elizabeth) are bringing you, especially in NE Ohio, a way to set some goodies under your tree. The spotlight on an Ohio natural food store and delivery service is written by Elizabeth Walling, the Journal’s Alabama Correspondent over at The Nourished Life blog. I wanted to feature this store last summer after the open house I attended– but I got caught up into other things– but Elizabeth cooks this up much better than I could. Continue reading

Why Don't They Get It? Maureen Diaz on God's Food and Medicine

Maureen Diaz is a Weston A. Price chapter leader up near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. I met her last month at their annual conference and Annie has her traditional cooking video (you really have to see her new DVD featured below!) She wrote an article called “Why Don’t They Get It?” over at Liberation Wellness, posted yesterday. She writes about when she is at church fellowships where the ladies talk about all the diseases going around as they serve the folks junk food: cookies, cakes and other industrially processed food. Here is my favorite part:

God has supplied us with everything we need to live an abundant life upon this earth. We just need to recognize and return to His nourishing and healing ways! Let’s return to His garden, His pasture. Let us embrace His healing ways; the herbs, oils, foods, and prayer which are our sources of health and healing. God’s medicine cabinet is full of good things! These medicines are not quackery or the delusions of fanatical, misguided people. They are God’s ways, and His ways are always good. Even Hippocrates understood these principles when he declared, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”.

You can read Why Don’t They Get It? at Liberation Wellness.

She has brought to mind that I have not yet put out Part II of Spiritual Meaning of Natural Food and Drink. (Part I is here) Maureen has produced another nutritious cooking DVD. I have only seen one segment– but based on her first video that Annie and I bought two years ago– you will want to have both.

Now, sample her new DVD production call Liberation Cooking.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
