Paleo Enchiladas (grain free with dairy free option)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist June 28, 2014

paleo enchiladasBefore I reveal this very creative Paleo enchiladas recipe, let me tell you a little about the recipe creator, Tara Rayburn.

I first met Tara, author of the cookbook Essential Gluten-Free Recipes, in yoga class about 10 years ago.  She was pregnant at the time and we struck up a conversation about Labor of Love, a local birthing center in Tampa that offers women a fantastic natural birth experience as well as holistic prenatal care (this is where I delivered all 3 of my children).

A natural opportunity to talk to Tara about traditional cooking and the travels and teachings of Dr. Weston A. Price presented itself when her child began to experience a challenge with food allergies.

Beware of Ascorbic Acid: Synthetic Vitamin C

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist June 24, 2014

isolated ascorbic acid is not in fruitDid you know that ascorbic acid is actually a synthetic form of vitamin C?

If you are learning this for the first time, it can be a rather shocking realization as almost all vitamin C supplements on the market use ascorbic acid.

Even more disturbing – ascorbic acid is frequently marketed as natural vitamin C. Truly natural forms of vitamin C and synthetic ascorbic acid seem to be used interchangeably.

How confusing for the consumer!

Nearly all juices and fruit products are loaded up with ascorbic acid, even many organic, healthfood store versions. It seems that if a product is labeled “high in Vitamin C”, consumers buy more of it.

A lot of folks are being fooled by these misleading semantics and there is a growing body of evidence that those consuming high doses of ascorbic acid should have reason to worry.

Three Studies Suggest Caution with High Dose Ascorbic Acid

Gardasil Causes Severe Genital Warts in a 19 Year Old Virgin

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist June 23, 2014

VAERSIn a troubling case of tragic vaccine failure, a 19 year old virgin from New Zealand has contracted a severe and lifelong infection with genital warts after completing 3 doses of HPV vaccine, most popularly known by the brand name Gardasil.

The teenager was initially diagnosed by her General Practitioner who noted that she was a non-smoker and had no other health concerns at the time. In addition, it was noted that the woman had  “completed a full course of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine prior to her sexual debut.”

Tests for HIV and syphilis were negative.  Most interesting is that the woman’s titers for hepatitis B antibodies were also negative despite her recent completion of three doses of hepatitis B vaccination.

Full vaccination with HPV (Gardasil) and Hepatits B completely and utterly failed for this otherwise healthy woman.

Even worse, Gardasil triggered the lifelong and embarrassing burden of genital warts, a sexually transmitted disease which can never be completely cured and which she had contracted without ever having been sexually active.

Why I Never Consume Colloidal Silver

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist June 21, 2014

colloidal silverDon’t get me wrong.

I love colloidal silver. It is a wonderful natural antibiotic that I have relied on for many years to keep my family healthy and away from the use of any and all conventional antibiotics – 15 years and counting.  Pretty decent record.

Colloidal silver is a product that is easily and cheaply obtained at many healthfood stores. Some people make it at home. It consists of tiny silver particles suspended in liquid for use either externally or internally.

The remarkable antibiotic nature of silver has been known for centuries. In the early 1900′s, the founder of Searle Pharmaceuticals, Alfred Searle, wrote in his book The Use of Colloids in Health and Disease:

“Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results…it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. It protects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus or diphtheria toxin.”
