Make Your Own Sourdough Starter

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist September 15, 2014

bubbling sourdough starter

When I first got into Traditional Food nearly 14 years ago, I pretty much had to make anything and everything myself because there were few companies (and none in my local area) that made the type of food I was seeking – let alone understood what I was even talking about!

Nowhere was this paradigm disconnect more apparent than the art of breadmaking.

“Isn’t using yeast the proper way to get bread to rise?   Isn’t this the way it’s always been done?” they would blankly ask.

“If the bread is organic, isn’t that good enough?”

Uh, no, no and no!

Yeast for breadmaking is relatively new in the grand scheme of human history.  In fact, when baker’s yeast was first introduced as an alternative to true sourdough starter in France in the mid 1600′s, it was strongly rejected because the Renaissance scientists of the time knew that this quicker, more convenient approach to breadmaking would negatively affect public health.

Angelina Jolie’s Biggest Beauty Secret

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist September 13, 2014

angelinajolieWhat is Angelina Jolie’s biggest beauty secret?

By her own admission, a thick, juicy steak!

In interviews prior to the release of her film Salt, Jolie says that she was vegan for a long time and that it “nearly killed” her.

“I found that I was not getting enough nutrition,” says Jolie.

Thankfully, Jolie wised up in time before her health and teeth were irreparably damaged. Many vegans are not as lucky. The fact is that some of the most critical nutrients for health, vitamins A, D,and B12 are simply not found in an exclusively plant based diet.

Vegans cite beta carotene as the plant based source of Vitamin A, but at best, human digestion can only convert a very small percentage of beta carotene into true vitamin A.

People with any sort of gut imbalance, which would be the vast majority of people today, generally cannot convert any beta carotene to true Vitamin A!

Is Your Metabolism Nourished?

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist September 13, 2014

The Nourished Metabolism ereaderThe following is a book review of The Nourished Metabolism by Elizabeth Walling. This book normally retails for $30, but until September 15 at midnight, you can get it along with $1000 of other eBooks, eCourses (including a $95 eCourse on essential oils) and $200 in product bonuses (such as a baby amber bracelet, remineralizing tooth gel, sourdough or yogurt starter and more) for only $29.97.   Click here to learn more.

What first struck me upon reading Elizabeth’s short but substantial book, is the clarity of her thinking and communication. In a field where clarity is the exception rather than the rule, The Nourished Metabolism is refreshingly quick and easy to read yet powerful in its ability to cut through the confusion and lead you to clear and practical conclusions you can benefit from immediately.

Speaking from personal experience — as opposed to being an academic — she conveys her own sense of frustration being stuck in an unhealthy state so early in life with a couple of toddlers and seemingly decades of struggle ahead.

Natural Toothpaste for Healing Cavities

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist September 11, 2014

natural toothpaste to heal cavitiesThe questions and comments are rolling in at a fast and furious rate regarding the recent article More Photographic Proof That Cavities Heal.

In particular, readers are interested to know exactly what natural toothpaste was used by Kristin S., the Mom who took the dramatic photos of her son’s healing cavities.

I emailed Kristin about this and she graciously sent me the recipe she used.

It is important to note that the toothpaste itself was not responsible for the improvement in the cavities shown in Kristin’s photos.  It was the dietary changes she made that made the big difference.

However, when the diet is right, a natural toothpaste that facilitates the remineralization process can definitely help!

Traditional Remedies for Modern Families Now Available (Psst! With Hundreds in Bonuses Too!)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist September 10, 2014

Traditional-Remedies-257x300

Today is the day!  Yippie!

My new book, Traditional Remedies for Modern Families, is now available to the public for the very first time!  Here’s a quickie synopsis:

Traditional Remedies for Modern Families is a 120+ page compendium of simple solutions to everyday wellness challenges without the use of drugs or toxic therapies. From coughs and colds to digestion, skin, cuts, bruises and allergies, Traditional Remedies for Modern Families covers the gamut of conditions that can effectively and safely be handled at home in the vast majority of cases saving time and money at the doctor’s office as well as immune system damage and other dangerous side effects from the overuse of drug based solutions.

With this book, I decided to launch as part of a book bundle – the best and most quality bundle I could find. This way, my reader friends could get a copy with so many bonuses ($200 worth) and other goodies that the book would be essentially free, making the investment the best possible value for them.

From September 10-15, 2014 at midnight, Traditional Remedies for Modern Families will be exclusively available as part of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle.

Um, can I go so far as to suggest that this bundle is so awesome that you can conceivably get a good portion of your holiday shopping done with a single $29.97 purchase? That’s right … the many eBooks, eCourses, and of course $200 in FREEBIES can be given to those you know would enjoy and use them if you can’t use them all yourself.

Here’s the rundown of what’s available in addition to my new book  … all for $29.97!

bundle bonusesbundle ebookswhat's in the bundle

If you’re anything like me, the $200 in bonuses is very exciting.  Here are a few of my freebie faves and yes, you will actually use them!

  • FREE Sourdough or heirloom yogurt starter culture from Cultures for Health ($13.95 value. This is where I buy my starter cultures.)
  • FREE 15 ml Bottle of Healthy Mouth Blend from OraWellness, ($22.97 value. My family uses this – it’s awesome!)
  • FREE Variety Gift pack from Hard Lotion ($16.50 value. Includes 1 Free Pocket Size Beesilk Bar, 1 Peppermint Lip Balm, and 1 Vanilla Dust Glitter Lip Balm)
  • and 7 more amazing bonuses worth over $145

With a total value of more than $200, these bonuses alone are worth over five times the price of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle.  

Only 30,000 bundles are available, however, so if this is of interest, don’t delay.  When they run out, they run out.  For good.  In other words, it won’t be offered again.

Click here to see the list of all the bonuses plus the amazing eBook authors and eCourses included in this bundle.

I hope you take advantage of this top quality bundle which is available just for the next few days! After this special sale ends, my book will only be available via Amazon.

Enjoy browsing the bundle page.  It is very exciting and colorful, and I think you will enjoy what a quality product this bundle truly is.
