biofilms key to candida treatment

Yeast overgrowth, also referred to as fungal overgrowth or simply Candida, is at epidemic levels today whether a person may know it to be a serious threat to health or not.

This is due to the fact that most symptoms that are caused by the compromising of one or more body tissues by fungus are usually treated by conventional doctors as another condition entirely, therefore never addressing the real cause.

Even holistic doctors can miss the mark by not considering the importance of breaking down biofilms as part of an effective candida treatment plan which can lead to failure of the protocol and much frustration on the part of the patient.

I remember so well holding my firstborn child for the very first time.

So precious.  So vulnerable!

I couldn’t imagine any chemicals of any kind touching his delicate skin which is why I took what I thought were great pains to ensure any personal care products used were nontoxic.

I must have spend a fortune on hypoallergenic “natural care” baby wipes at that time for diaper changes (organic baby wipes were hard to find then), but looking back, those weren’t such a great choice after all.

Wise Traditions is America’s premier nutritional conference featuring renowned speakers on a variety of health-related topics, a large vendor exhibit area, and whole foods based meals that are always from scratch, delicious, satisfying, sustainably produced, locally sourced (as much as possible), and traditionally prepared.

Are you tired of saying “no” to food all the time because everything seems to be either unhealthy or toxic? Let the Weston A. Price Foundation teach you how to say YES while still keeping it nutritious and delicious!

I am excited to be on the docket as a speaker for the Chapter Leader meeting on Thursday, November 6, and I will also be signing books at the Radiant Life table from 12:45-1:30 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon if you want to stop by and say hello!

I would encourage you to check out the action packed schedule for this year’s Conference with a variety of different learning tracks for both the novice and experienced attendee:

  • Nourishing Traditional Diets
  • Gut and Psychology Syndrome
  • Human Health and Soil Health
  • Farming and Gardening
  • Whole Organic Foods
  • Food and Nutrition
  • Testing
  • Native Ways
  • Dental
  • Making it Practical

<< Click here for the Speakers and Conference Schedule >>

I can’t stress enough how this Conference will change your life, whether it is your first time to attend or your 15th. I always come away with life changing information every single year that continues to improve my family’s overall wellness.

Note that the Conference hotel sells out every year, so don’t delay to register and make your hotel reservations!

Special Gift: Access the Wise Traditions Conference Library

Pudding is the ultimate comfort food especially when the weather turns cool.

Warm, right off the stove is the way I most enjoy it just like my Grandma used to make it.  A pudding box wasn’t good enough for her, and it’s not good enough for me either. Who wants to feed their children (or themselves) a bowlful of GMO white sugar, GMO corn starch, artificial colors and flavors plus preservatives anyway?

Not me!

From scratch with only whole ingredients is the way to go with pudding if you want all the enjoyment and none of the toxic load!

I typically make pudding with grassfed, fresh from the farm milk, but if there is even a hint of congestion issues in the household due to weather changes or whatnot, it is best to skip the dairy and make coconut milk pudding instead. This is because dairy, even if raw, can become mucous forming when cooked.

sports illustrated cover with Carolyn Murphy

Carolyn Murphy is a Supermodel in every sense of the word.

A native Florida girl, she has appeared on magazine covers from around the world since her debut over two decades ago including Sports Illustrated, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, W and dozens of others.

In addition, Ms. Murphy has been the face of Gucci, Tiffany & Co., MaxMara, and Harry Winston, Vogue Model of the Year, and consistently ranked by Forbes as one of the highest paid models in the world.

There can be no doubt that Carolyn Murphy has attained a level of success in her field achieved by few others.

Magazine covers and lucrative contracts aside, Carolyn Murphy’s greatest contribution to women is clearly not her epitomization of modern beauty with its airbrushed photos of perfection and unattainable proportions.

No indeed.  It may well prove to be her recent admission to her fans that she has abandoned dieting and her suggestion that true beauty comes from eating Real Food.

conventional eczema treatment makes it worse

By Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na)

While many of us know eczema to be a condition of inflamed and irritated skin, if you or your child actually suffers from eczema, you know how burdensome and afflictive this pathology can be.

I understand. As a child I was burdened with this “hell on earth”—as I was covered with it from head to toe.

But oh! How I wished I had left it alone.

What? Leave this distressing condition alone with no eczema treatment whatsoever?

Let me explain.

Vitamin D deficiency symptoms

With flu season upon us and serious new viruses like Enterovirus D68 making the rounds, keeping blood levels of vitamin D at optimal levels can be truly lifesaving especially for children and the elderly.

Flu is actually vitamin D deficiency disease, not a happenstance occurrence in your life because you didn’t get a flu shot or sat next to a coughing person on the train to work.

Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council and one of the most preeminent Vitamin D researchers in the world today, has identified that vitamin D helps produce the antimicrobial peptides that protect against the flu. This is why people are more prone to the flu in winter when Vitamin D producing sunshine is minimal or nonexistent at some latitudes, or people are too bundled up to get enough skin exposed in  the first place.

simple elderberry syrup to boost immunity

When my children had whooping cough 8 years ago (all at the same time, no less!), I relied heavily on elderberry syrup to keep the mucous to a minimum which reduced the severity and frequency of coughing spells.

I never realized until that particular time that this common, nondescript little berry, particularly when concentrated into elderberry syrup, packed such a powerful punch when it comes to managing cough symptoms even for an illness as severe as pertussis.  The fact is, elderberry in many different forms has been used in folk medicine for centuries to treat flus, colds and sinusitis as well as coughs.

Confused about bone broth, MSG, and glutamine?

The article below by Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, coauthor with Sally Fallon Morell of the new and highly acclaimed book Nourishing Broth: An Old Fashioned Remedy for the Modern World, clears up the confusion and answers your most frequently asked questions.

by Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD  (drkaayladaniel.com)

Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid that is critical for gut, brain and immune health.  It’s also taken by many bodybuilders and other athletes to enhance muscle building and to speed recovery from injuries and overtraining.

Despite its many virtues, glutamine has risks.

High supplemental doses, as taken by some bodybuilders, have caused dizziness, headaches and neurological problems. But it’s not just people going overboard with supplements who are reacting poorly to glutamine.

Many people today, especially autistic children, have problems metabolizing glutamine properly, a problem caused by multiple factors, including vitamin B6 deficiency, lead toxicity and the widespread use of monosodium glutamate or MSG in the modern food supply.

Over a decade ago, antibacterial soap became all the rage and suddenly every public bathroom and every home seemed to be stocked with it.

This rapid switch away from plain soap and water occurred despite the fact that there was and still is absolutely no evidence that antibacterial soap works any better than the traditional suds it up approach.

Fast forward to today and fully 75% of liquid soaps on the market still use antibacterial ingredients despite increasingly loud warnings about their safety and efficacy.(...)
