I have no idea what that is on his head, it’s just funny. Actually, this isn’t a funny topic at all, it’s pretty serious by most accounts. Wifi. Cell phone towers. Microwaves. 3G. 4G. And now rolling out 5G. If you live in the big city, you might have noticed it’s getting noisier and noiser. Don’t believe me? Take a road trip to the middle of nowhere, shut off the car, and have a listen. You might be surprised at how quiet it is.

Life in the big city is filled with many hazards and EMF (electomagnetic frequencies) is an issue. For some of us, it’s getting really loud lately. Wouldn’t it be incredible if we could experience that same quiet we felt in the middle of nowhere, in our home. In the big city.

Maybe we can take the edge off, at least at night when we go to sleep. Maybe we can protect ourselves to some degree at least. Here’s some ideas.

EMF protection is probably not something most of us think about that much, but with 5G rolling out as we speak, this is getting nuts. I don’t like the background noise, especially at night it sucks. One of the draw backs of life in the big city. I havn’t tried any of these, but if I had the money I probably would. That last one looks like it’s for improving sleep, not sure if it does anything about EMF but for those having trouble sleeping it might be a good one to have.

To reduce EMF exposure, we can either wear clothes and hats that block it or paint our walls with EMF blocking paint, or build a faraday cage around our bed. I’m still looking into this because 5G concerns me a bit. I think 5G might be a really really BAD thing, and cancer rates will probably skyrocket. Probably is a form of population control, who knows. I just know it sucks. I’m not thrilled and excited about 5G. At all.

More soon…

Top Benefits of MSM

In order for our bodies to remain youthful and energetic, we all need biologically active sulfur. Sulfur is a naturally occurring, organically-bound dietary sulfur assisting in multiple functions in the body.

MSM is a sulfur-bearing molecule found in all living organisms. Sulfur is one of the five elements of life and is needed to form crucial blood proteins and amino acids.

When our diet lacks MSM, the cells become rigid and lose the ability to flex back. These are cells that are associated with aging. that we all need very much in our diet, but most are sadly lacking. As we get older, in combination with a mineral deficient diet, our bodies become rigid, cells become stiff, and our general energy level starts to drop over time but this doesn’t have to be a permanent condition.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound that is naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle. Sulfur is present in many natural unprocessed foods, but it’s quickly lost during the cooking process. MSM is gaining a lot of attention due to the recent focus on longevity and anti-aging technologies, as well as the simple fact that it works.  It really CAN help with many things.  It’s like filling a missing mineral gap for many folks.  Especially for inflammation and cellular healing, at least for me that’s where it really shines most I think.

1. Improves skin health and complexion

MSM is necessary for collagen production. Sagging skin and wrinkles, as well as dry, cracked skin are all developed through a loss of collagen. MSM works together with Vitamin C to build new, healthy tissues. MSM can normalize collagen formation and radically improve skin health.

2. Improves flexibility

Research has shown that MSM is highly effective in improving joint flexibility. Additionally, it helps to produce flexible skin and muscle tissue. This leads to an increase in overall flexibility due to a restoration of the “juiciness” in the tissues.

3. Detoxifies the body

One of the most important features of MSM is that it makes your cells more permeable. This means that it allows toxins and metabolic waste products to easily be moved out of the cells, while essential nutrients and hydration can be moved in. It’s a calcium phosphate dissolver, so it has a remarkable ability to break up the bad calcium that’s at the root of degenerative diseases.

4. Strengthens hair and nails

Collagen and keratin and both critical for the production of healthy hair and nails. MSM is a bonafide “beauty mineral” that provides the sulfur needed to produce collagen and keratin. It’s also highly noted to contribute to exceptional strength and thickness of the hair and nails, which can be noticed in just a couple weeks of consistent use.

5. Accelerates healing

Lactic acid and other byproducts cause pain and soreness in the body. MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate waste products at the cellular level. This speeds recovery and frees up more energy for rebuilding.

6. Naturally Increases energy

Due to the increased permeability of the cells, less energy is required to deal with the accumulation of toxins. This results in more energy being redirected towards activity and necessary healing. Digestion is the biggest energy requirement of the body (Approximately 70-80% of your energy is spent on digestion each day). MSM increases the absorption of nutrients so that the energy expenditure on digestion is vastly reduced.

7. Anti-inflammatory

MSM is a powerful anti-inflammatory due to its ability to allow metabolic wastes to be removed from the cells. Excess weight on the body is actually inflammation. The cells of the body are chronically inflamed and retaining the byproducts of metabolic processes. Sulfur needs to be present In order for these toxins and wastes to be removed from the body. When these byproducts can be removed from the system, then the cells can also dispose of excess fluids that were being stored as a buffer. What results is a natural and effective reduction in unwanted weight.

How to use MSM:

MSM can be purchased in powder form or in supplement capsules. For best results using the MSM powder, added it to your water along with a botanical source of vitamin C like Camu Camu Berry or lemon juice. Most MSM supplements contain synthetic byproducts, but those Amazon deals above and below looks pretty good, I think they are all 100% naturally derived MSM.

This one article says: Start with one teaspoon of MSM powder in 16 ounces of water, and gradually work your way up to 2 to 3 tablespoons per day to see some really impressive results.

I actually haven’t tried doing THAT much (yet).  I think I’m going to start doing more of this one, see what happens if I step it up to that. WOW!  2 or 3 TABLESPOONS per day?  I usually just do a quarter teaspoon in some water now and then!!  I can’t imagine doing 2 or 3 TABLESPOONS!  I’m going to try it and I’ll report back on that one here.

It’s waterproof, it won’t ignite in heat.  You scrape it with a steel scraper which is often included, and it produces a big spark. You can also use the backside of your knife blade. No need to dull the sharp side!

You can ALSO scrape little shaving off of it, into a pile, and THEN scrape a spark into that little pile and it ignites with surprising ease.  Forget about rubbing two sticks together, this is the tool to have. See this video demonstration shows just how easy it really is. In a survival situation, the last thing you need to be struggling with is rubbing two sticks together! It aint so easy to start a fire with two wooden sticks, most folks really couldn’t do it, they aren’t patient enough or skilled enough. The magnesium stick is like magic, you can even produce a spark in pouring rain supposedly.

Have you ever had REAL superfood brownies? Or an ACTUAL superfood chocolate cake?  Most people really haven’t.  They might THINK they have…

But they haven’t.

Scroll down for the recipe and links to buy the ingredients…for…
Superfood brownies that are actually healthy for you AND delicious beyond belief.  Could it be TRUE??

This is also spectacular as a kids birthday cake! Just make 2 or 3 of these, and layer with something superyummyhealthy between each layer (like some organic locally grown blueberry  or raspberry jam.  Lots of things could go between each layer, but we’ll get into that more later.  (clue: make your own jam using berries and a sweetener listed below)

We’re all familiar with those sugary chocolate brownies and cake grandma loves to bake, but are they really GOOD for you?  Of course they aren’t!  And we really shouldn’t be feeding that stuff to our kids.  It’s processed food, and they should know and learn the difference.  They should be taught the difference between crap and quality.

Are the processed food brownies ok to eat.  Some will say, AH, it’s ok once in a while, but what do I say?  Yeah, I guess that’s true, but why does anyone need to eat processed foods with such fantastic spectacular alternatives easily available today for smart healthycreatures to eat.  Why not try alternatives to processed food items and discover how much BETTER the alternatives truly are!  Better tasting and way better for your body.  Why not discover and explore what REAL quality actually IS.  (Hint: Betty Crocker isn’t involved, and neither is C&H “pure” cane sugar, frommmm Hawaii)

Processed milk, processed sugar, processed flour, pesticides, GMOs.  Why do people NEED to eat that?  People who can afford it.   People who think they can’t afford it.  Both are missing the boat entirely.  Healthycreatures know better!  Those things can all be IMPROVED tastewise and ALSO come with huge health benefits to replace the health risks.  Replacing health risks with health benefits, is more than just a win win, it’s a HUGE win win.

If you can afford it, get the best already!  If you think you can’t afford it, think again!  (see estimated cost per pie below the recipe below)

Spend wisely and eat wisely and you will QUICKLY discover that you actually spend LESS on food while eating FAR higher grade meals.

I usually shudder when I see that monstrous SUGAR cake that is giddily presented at just about every kids birthday party in America.  It’s not just the toxic refined sugar, it’s the processed flour and it’s the pesticides and it’s the entire GMO chemical shitstorm your are consuming when you eat something THIS heavily processed in bad ways with bad things on EVERY measurable level.  With pesticides and gmo’s on top for frosting!

Don’t let your kids get hooked on processed / “refined” food.  Instead, teach your family how to make superfood brownies that EVERYONE loves because they actually taste TEN TIMES better.

Here are the ingredients you will need to make SUPERFOOD BROWNIES

These are tasty.  Nobody in their right MIND would prefer the processed food version which tastes sickly sweet by comparison and is just a mirage and a pale reflection of the WHOLE food version.

INGREDIENTS:
one stick of butter (preferably raw milk butter, but at least organic butter if you can’t find or can’t afford the raw)

1/2 Cup Raw Organic Cacao Powder (here in the US, people say “chocolate”, same stuff, lightyears higher quality nowadays if you get the right stuff, see amazon links below)
1/2 Cup Raw Organic Coconut flour
1/2 to 3/4 cup Raw Organic Coconut crystals (or Lakanto or Raw Organic Maple Syrup)
3 or 4 eggs (from free range, organic fed, happy freely wandering and laughing chickens, ideally…at least chuckling chickens if you can find em)
1/16 tsp of baking powder (or a couple pinches per pie)

Optional:
1/4 cup Raw Organic Brazil Nut powder (optional, link below. natural testosterone booster, great for adults)
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped Raw Organic Walnuts (IF you can find them, also might be more for adults)
1/2 cup shredded Raw Organic Coconut (optional, for serious coconut lovers only)

For kids: mix in some raw organic locally grown big fat blueberries for tasty surprises that kids love.
If it’s too thick, add an egg, add half cube melted butter, but don’t make it too runny, it should be somewhat thick.

FOR VEGANS: Swap in 3/4 to a full cup of Raw Organic coconut butter instead of eggs and cow butter. I’m going to try this over the holidays, might actually taste even BETTER.

PRICETAG:
TOP OF THE LINE BROWNIES/CAKE:
20 bucks per pie (using raw maple syrup and raw milk butter, and lots of organic berries on top)
BUDGET BROWNIES/CAKE:
3 to 5 bucks per pie  (use lakanto sweetener, organic butter or regular butter to cut cost)

You might want a glass of milk handy for the chocolate barrage you will soon be facing happily…

Here’s the basic recipe.

Superfood Brownie Directions

#1
First start melting your butter in a saucepan on VERY low (don’t boil it)

#2
when it has melted, mix in your coconut sugar (or Lakanto, or maple syrup or coconut sugar, use an alkalyne sweetener, avoid acidic sweeteners).Honestly, it doesn’t matter whether you use coconut sugar, or lakanto or maple syrup.  ANY of those amazing alkaline sweeteners will put a big smile on everyone’s face.  Maple is most expensive, followed by Coconut sugar.  If you’re really trying to stretch your dollars, get the Lakanto, you might add slightly more than half a cup to make it sweet as refined sugar.

#3
mix all the powders in a large bowl and slowly pour the sweet melted butter into the powder.
stir until there are NO chunks left.  use a blender with a wisk attachment if you want to get more air in there
but I usually just stir by hand, and if it’s too thick, add more melted butter and/or egg.  You won’t want it RUNNY or SUPER DRY, you want it somewhere between runny and dry.  It’s really not hard at all.  My 3 year old can do it.  I usually use 3 eggs, it’s perfect every time.

#4
grease up a cookie pan with coconut oil or butter, pour the batter in.

#5
bake on 350 for 15 minutes or so but keep a CLOSE eye on it because it cooks pretty fast and you don’t want to burn your superfood (this stuff aint cheap, but each package lasts a long time and produces many batches).

#6
Pour a big glass of coconut milk or raw cow milk or raw goat milk if you’re into that.
You might want that sitting there to accompany your brownie in delight.

Nothing but the BEST for my family!  Spend a tiny bit more at the store, and spend a tiny bit more time in the kitchen, the payoff is practically infinite and people who switch from processed foods to whole foods can DEFINITELY feel and taste the difference.

Not only do they taste far tastier, they are also in fact a healthy food choice!   High quality raw cacao is actually great for the heart, countless studies and traditions support this fact.  No serious systemic damage here, no long term systemic damage, no short term systemic damage.  No coming down from a “sugar high” which is actually your system going into SHOCK essentially from the processed foods which are clearly, MOST difficult to process!

Actual high quality really is a remarkable thing and worth exploring in depth.

Your body has to work VERY hard to process that white sugar, and it’s basically slamming the accelerator pedal to the floor on the aging process.  You will notice people who have eaten a LOT of processed foods consistently for decades, are typically obese and sometimes extra pale.  There are many disturbing reasons for this I can’t cover in this article, but you will have NO trouble finding plenty of information on the DESTRUCTIVE power of processed sugar and processed foods in general.  Rather than dwell on that, I prefer to present amazing alternatives, to completely turn the tables on your processed food addiction.

Whole foods, really do make a huge difference.  They are healthy AND they taste better, once you have experienced them a few times, it’s hard to go back to those sickly processed food ingredients.  Processed foods are a nightmare most people never escape.

Here’s the raw UN-processed ingredients.  Nothing is bad for you below this line!
Why on EARTH would you want low quality food in your kitchen?  For your kids?

Get the best. Thank me later!  Come back to healthycreatures another day and buy some more stuff.

that’s all the exotic stuff you need. I think you can find some good free range eggs, some raw organic nuts, some decent butter and some baking powder. It’s SUPER easy to make these superfood brownies and you really won’t find anything as delicious on this entire planet. If you love chocolate and you love coconut, you’re going to be in chocolate coconut heaven. Be sure and have a glass of milk handy (preferably raw).

I can’t personally go COMPLETELY raw with my diet, but I try to move in that direction as much as I can and at least eat WHOLE foods as much as you possibly can.

If your food items have a LONG list of ingredients starting with SUGAR or HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, that’s called processed food, and more and more we are finding that processed food is causing a lot of illness in people nowadays. Getting off processed foods is probably the BEST lifestyle decision you will ever make. At least cut way down and watch how much better you feel! Watch how much longer you live!

IF these brownies aren’t sweet enough for your taste, add an extra 1/4 cup of sweetener next time.
IF they are TOO sweet, then pull back on the sweetener.
Everyone has different preferences for their sweets and their sweetness.  How much sweet is sweet enough?

chocolate superfood brownies

I find that these superfood brownies get sweeter after they cool down in the fridge, not sure why, but I love them nice and hot and I don’t really want them TOO sweet personally.  Adjust the amount of sweetener until everyone is smiling from ear to ear.  That’s when you know you got it just right!  Superfood Brownies that are SUPER healthy and delicious as well.

To make this into a healthy SUPERFOOD BIRTHDAY CAKE for kids.  Simply make 3 or 4 or 5 batches in a ROUND pan.  Make them one by one, unless you have 3 or 4 or 5 round pans, then go nuts bake em all up at once!  Then just smear something really really amazing/healthy/sticky between each layer.  You could make your own jam with locally grown organic berries mushed up and you might not even need to add any sweetener there, but you could experiment with the 3 different healthy sweeteners listed.  Or you could layer between the cakes with many other things…I’ll be adding some links for cool healthy stuff to use for frosting, I have some really fun creative ideas for that which I will share soon here.  If you have vegetarians in the group, avoid marshmellow which contains meat by products in most cases.  Also avoid gummy bears and gummy worms which are also NOT vegetarian in most cases.

I certainly welcome alternative sweetener suggestions in the comments.  Please tell me about other healthy sweeteners I should know about!  (xylitol, I’m not sure about that one yet.  no, not Agave.  Stevia is great if you know which one to buy, but there’s lots of crap stevia available so I’m not even going into Stevia in this article just yet.  Honey is like stevia in that way, there’s so much crap honey out there, I don’t want to go into honey at all here yet.)

Ok that’s crazy.  That’s NOT going to work for us here…haha…but kinda cool anyway.  See below for some more realistic options for busy professionals and families.

We have tried a lot of water filtration systems at this point.  Spent a lot of money too.  They all use some type of “filter” which needs regular replacing, and really does not remove everything.  They just don’t folks.  All kinds of shit  gets through those filters, and I do mean shit in some cases.  All kinds of crazy crazy stuff is in our tap water nowadays and Flint Michigan isn’t the only place with weird ass shit in the tap water.  MOST of us have really funky tap water nowadays.  Therefor, I have been on a quest to find the best drinking water solution and the best water purification machine.

Suprisingly, even in really gorgeous communities swamped with amazing trees and fresh air.  OH wow, in some cases, they buy crappy water from other areas for the tap water.  You’re not drinking fresh rain water from that tap, far far from it.  Yes a filtration system is better than nothing, but in my experience, those things CLOG UP REALLY FAST.  Ouch, THEN what is happening?   At that point, does that mean they are NO LONGER filtering out the horror show of things showing in tap water nowadays?  Yes, I think it does.

Enter DISTILLED WATER.  Distilled water removes EVERYTHING.  There is ZERO chlorine, ZERO flouride, ZERO pharmaceuticals, ZERO lead, ZERO poop, the list goes on and on…

Get one of these Durastills, these last forever. I have had one for about 20 years and it still works great! I can easily rave about Durastill because mine has been running for decades. Durastill have been making these things for 40 years or so…quality machines. Why gamble on some NEW company, these Durastills are the ones to get. Nevermind those cheaper ones way down at the bottom of the article, I really can’t say if those are great or not.

What on God’s green earth is MORE important than water, and drinking pure high quality water. These Durastill’s are my top choices. Just spring for a tank under the unit, without the tank it’s just a pain. Also, be SURE you get an AUTOMATIC, you REALLY don’t want a manual, trust me. Manually making every drop of the drinking water in your household is very quickly a huge PITA. That means: you get really sick of making your water manually very quickly. It gets old fast. Get an auto distiller, spend the extra loot. Don’t muck about with your water! Especially nowadays…

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you do decide to go distilled as we have done.  You should be aware that distilled water is somewhat LOW pH.  In addition, the mineral content is zero.  This is critically important to understand or at least be aware of. There is a huge debate on this topic.

Some believe, that if you decide to switch to distilled water, you need to raise the pH and add some minerals.  A quick solution is you can add BAKING SODA and you can add PINK HIMALAYAN SEA SALT.  The baking sode will raise the ph, and that particular sea salt, will provide the minerals you need.  I use a “Water Mineralizer” product that does both, and we love it.  I will post a link to get that stuff soon as I can.

You should also get a pH tester, or pH tester of some kind and make sure and get that pH level up there to a good level.  I’ll post more information about these important details soon as I can, but for now if you put 1/8 tsp baking soda, and 1/8 tsp pink himalayan sea salt in each gallon of water, I think that’s about right.  More soon…  There are many many ways to get minerals, and it’s easy to raise the pH of the water, so don’t let this important note stop you from making the switch.

So there is definitely some debate on this issue. Some say we get all the minerals we need from a healthy diet, not necessarily from water. Some say the pH really doesn’t matter because once it gets inside you, the pH is adjusted by your body. Either way….

Here’s some cool newer machines…I’m definitely leaning towards the Durastills above, but these below are pretty much the same really. These distillers remove EVERYTHING. Most water filters can’t come close to distillers. I like the Durastill construction quality, but I’m not 100% sure which is better, they’re extremely similar, I just trust Durastill because I’ve had one for about 20 years and it’s still working great! (not much to look at nowadays, but still works). I’m going to buy a new one soon, and it will probably be a Durastill not a Waterwise. (Sorry waterwise, look I still left your products in this post! I just really like Durastill, it’s like an old Chevy or something.

So yea, waterwise, also great MAYBE. I can only rave about Durastill honestly, the rest are upstarts compared to them and I can’t recommend them. They MIGHT be just fine, and they are cheaper, but this is your water we’re talking about here? I’m saving up for a new Durastill myself, I want the best quality machine, but if you don’t care you just want something cheap-er…then check these out below:

The one on the left includes a SELF STERILIZATION feature that the middle one does not include, otherwise the 2 are pretty much the same only different sizes.  The one on the right is manual, not automatic.  That means the one on the right you have to do a lot more work (filling it manually all the time).  The ones on the left you attack to your plumbing so they automatically stay full.  (huge difference actually).  I definitely prefer the automatic, or else you spend a lot of time filling your water tank.  Oh man, it gets old actually.  Highly recommend automatic.  Either way, it is nice to know you’re not drinking horrible things in your water every day.  Water is really really important, and nowadays it’s got really nasty stuff in it when it comes from your tap.  Man oh man, that is an understatement.

Sea Salt vs Normal Processed Table Salt http://healthycreatures.com/sea-salt-vs-normal-processed-salt/ http://healthycreatures.com/sea-salt-vs-normal-processed-salt/#respond Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:37:58 +0000 http://healthycreatures.com/?p=1106 Salt has a bad rap.

Salt has a bad rap. When people talk about the horrible effects of salt on the human body, they are absolutely correct, but they are referring to processed table salt. In the video, it’s the one on the far right, the one that I do NOT use in my cooking at all ever. This guy RARELY uses it, simply because it’s the LEAST tasty of the salts. That’s reason enough right there! But wait, is it bad for you?

Yes, it’s really really unhealthy to eat toxic table salt on a regular basic or in large quantities. Like processed sugar, it has just become ubiquitous and accepted as the norm, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. Like microwaves, it’s insidious really. How these things have become “normal” and “OK” to use, is a topic for another post, but you can be sure it’s all about money, not your health.

Table “salt” is made by taking natural salt (such as crude oil flake leftovers) and heating it to 1200° Fahrenheit. During this extreme process, the chemical composition is drastically altered and all of the nutritional benefits are completely obliterated. This is about as far from a “raw” food item as you can possibly get. If you’re trying to go raw, conventional table salt is NOT raw folks. If you’re trying to avoid processed foods, this is one of the worst ones. It’s like slathering your bread with margarine instead of butter. Big huge difference in both taste and health benefits. Of course it depends on the butter as well since there are many types of butter and some are not much better than margarine, but you get the idea.

Conventional processed table salt usually contains anti-caking agents and often many other things you really don’t want to eat but the worst thing is that it is heat processed and stripped of it’s natural trace minerals. Remember, minerals are more important than vitamins. STRIPPING away ALL the minerals by processing at high heat is like microwaving your food. It’s dead food. Dead food is bad, living food is good. Eat living food, not dead food. You will live longer with a higher quality of life. If that stuff matters to you, you might want to switch to the good stuff.

Here’s some of the really GOOD stuff. Imagine, salt that is actually GOOD for you! Even healthy!

Oh one more little thing you should know. These raw sea salts I’m listing are DELICIOUS. Once you start eating these salts, you really can’t go back. People will find you picky or worse a snob, until THEY taste it. It’s like the difference between fresh squeezed orange juice and orange soda. It’s like the difference between butter and margarine. It’s the difference between high mineral content, and zero mineral content. I’m surprised more restaurants aren’t switching over. Some restaurants use what’s called “Kosher” sea salt, which may or may not be great, but is certainly better than processed table salt.

Toxic Table Salt

The scary part is, nobody really knows exactly what is actually IN this stuff. You just don’t know, different stuff shows up in tests. It’s pretty easy to add really toxic stuff in small amounts and get away with it, but over TIME, those little amounts will take their toll. Toxic table “salt” contains about 97.5% sodium chloride and a 2.5% balance containing an assortment of ingredients including:

Anti-caking chemicals.
Iodine to prevent goiters. (too much iodine is NOT a good thing)
MSG and/or white processed sugar to help stabilize the iodine.
Aluminum derivatives such as sodium solo-co-aluminate. (yum)
The video above actually mentions some other really nasty things that are frequently added

This fake salt puts people at risk of developing cardiovascular issues and chronic disease because of elevated blood pressure and arteriosclerosis. Yes, very bad news and if you eat a lot of restaurant food, that’s what you’re eating most likely. It’s true, if you are eating crappy salt, it is in fact a really unhealthy decision.

Typical table salt crystals are totally isolated from each other. In order for your body to try to metabolize table salt crystals, it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy causing a serious drain on your metabolism and reducing the available energy for little things like healing and detoxification, which do require energy.

Inorganic sodium chloride can keep you from an ideal fluid balance and can overburden your elimination systems.

When your body tries to isolate the excess salt you’re typically exposing it to when you eat out at that amazing new restaurant, water molecules must surround the sodium chloride to break them up into sodium and chloride ions in order to help your body neutralize them. To accomplish this, water is taken from your cells in order to neutralize the unnatural sodium chloride. Dehydrated cells are unhealthy cells. Cells need to be properly hydrated folks, and processed table salt isn’t going to help matters.

This results in a less-than-ideal fluid balance in the cells.

Raw sea salts such as Celtic Sea Salt®, Himalayan sea salt or Icelandic sea salt have many very important health benefits and should be understood as a completely different food item. These are ACTUAL raw foods with high mineral content. Essential and critically important minerals.s You should be eating this every day and here’s why.

Because of the life-giving nutrition sea salt contains:

Contains 85 trace minerals which helps keep your body hydrated (the smart way)
Sufficient sodium levels that help balance your sodium-potassium ratios.
Extremely powerful electrolytes like magnesium.
Trace elements required for proper adrenal, immune and thyroid function.
Digestive enzyme enhancers assisting your body with absorbing more nutrients from the foods you eat.

Himalayan Salt

Himalayan crystal salt is the purest salt available on the planet according to some. With a history dating back to Earth’s creation, it is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea.

Known as “pink gold,” Himalayan crystal salt is actually a beautiful translucent pink and contains all of the 84 elements found in your body. Because of amazing nutrient load, doctors of functional medicine report that regularly eating Himalayan salt can help:

Regulate the water content throughout your body
Promote healthy pH balance in your cells (particularly your brain cells)
Promote blood sugar health and can help reduce the signs of aging
Assist in the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in your body
Absorb food particles through your intestinal tract
Support respiratory health
Promote sinus health
Prevent of muscle cramps
Promote bone strength
Regulate your sleep
Support your libido
Promote vascular health
Regulate your blood pressure with sufficient water and potassium intake.

Celtic Sea Salt®

Another ancient commodity, Celtic Sea Salt® is comparable to Himalayan crystal salt in its composition and health benefits. Being of a grayish hue, it is naturally harvested in Brittany France near the Celtic Sea using a 2,000-year old Celtic method that is crucial to preserving its life-giving nutrition profile. Weber’s description of this process sums it up well:

The salt fields of Brittany are lined with a natural layer of clay and sand…. In order to harmonize the trace elements, the hand raking of the moist crystals is done by artisans with a skillful touch.

The method is followed by a dedicated group of professional natural salt farmers in Brittany, who perpetuate the traditional skills that have been passed down through generations from antiquity. When harvested in these ways, natural Celtic sea salts are highly beneficial to one’s health as they possess many therapeutic qualities.

It has been reported that Celtic Sea Salt® is powerfully beneficial for your health and can help:

Alkalize the body
Balance blood sugars
Eliminate mucus buildup
Build immunity
Improve brain function
Increase energy
Provide electrolyte balance
Promote restful sleep
Prevent muscle cramps
Regulate heartbeat and blood pressure

Interestingly, this salt will retain its moisture and will be moist to touch, in spite of how you store it. Think of this as a gentle reminder of its ocean-source and continual life-giving properties!

Last but certianly not least, this is actually my favorite. Icelandic sea salt. It’s hard to pick a favorite because Himalayan Pink Salt, Celtic Sea Salt and Icelandic Sea salt are all incredibly delicious when compared to processed salt. Processed foods just never taste as good once you discover the raw version.

Of course, as with most things in nutrition, don’t OVER do it. Too much salt can be bad, any kind of salt, but if you ARE going to use salt, get the top shelf stuff. The good stuff with minerals intact! Get ANY of the salt products I have listed for sale on this page, ANY of these are absolutely amazing. The most amazing part is how much you will love the taste, over time it’s almost like you love it more and more. You really can taste a difference, more and more as time goes by. Maybe it’s a DEPTH of flavor that is so far beyond the dead table salt we’re all so used to, it’s almost like a black and white movie suddenly becoming full color. Yea, it’s like THAT.

Folks: It’s unhealthy to eat toxic table salt but raw sea salts such as Celtic Sea Salt®, Himalayan or Icelandic sea salt have many very important health benefits called minerals. More important than vitamins. Plus they are delicious!

Above all, remember to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of high quality water each day (I prefer distilled water). Salt will DEHYDRATE you if you are not drinking fluids you can become quit ill. No matter which salts you are using, be sure you drink PLENTY of water each day. Water is even more important than salt, be sure you get PLENTY of water. If you are in the dessert and you are dying of thirst do NOT eat salt. If you are working out and you are extremely thirsty, do not eat gobs of salt. I know common sense, but I just had to add this part about water. Drink it. Drink plenty, THEN make a salt comparison if you want. Raw sea salt vs table salt.

In conclusion, if you are very thirsty, or dying of thirst, do NOT play with salt. If you are cooking up a delicious meal, then play with salt by all means and you too will discover the difference.

SUPERFOODS WARNING – What you should know about Superfood http://healthycreatures.com/superfoods-warning-superfood-side-effects-safety/ http://healthycreatures.com/superfoods-warning-superfood-side-effects-safety/#respond Sat, 11 Jun 2016 18:19:25 +0000 http://healthycreatures.com/?p=1068 Like any new food, you should proceed slowly.  If you have any food allergies, you should be especially careful.  That’s just common sense, I shouldn’t even have to remind anyone.  […]

Like any new food, you should proceed slowly.  If you have any food allergies, you should be especially careful.  That’s just common sense, I shouldn’t even have to remind anyone.  If you are super allergic to nuts for example, of course you should proceed with caution before chowing down on a new type of seed or nut.  Warning:  If you are trying a new food, try a taste first to see if you like it before chowing down.

Even an ape in the jungle would know this without being told.  If you feel sick after a little taste, you should probably not proceed.  If you hate the taste, it’s probably not a fit for you.  Are superfoods safe?  That’s the same as asking is FOOD safe.  Depends on where you get it and what has been ADDED.  People are ADDING crap to food.  Companies LOVE adding crap to food.

Know your ingredients.  Learn more about food ingredients.  Some processed food contains some really gross stuff and even scary stuff.  Avoid it as much as you can.  If there are more than a few ingredients, and you don’t know what most of them are at all, that’s almost certainly bad news, and maybe really bad news.

Just a reminder, superfoods will not magically fix everything before your very eyes.  They will not instantly transform anyone into a superhealthy person.  They will not instantly make your face radiate and glow with a profound superadiance visible from 100 yards.  They will not suddenly make a morbidly obese person skinny sexy and filled with superenergy.

I have never made any such claims and never would.  Superfoods are food.  They are food items or extracted from food items.  Superfoods are food.  If you’re concerned about the food you eat, you should be!  If you’re concerned about overdosing on food, you could!  If you’re concerned about over eating, you can!  If you’re worried about side effects of superfood, you need to learn about superfoods.  Superfoods are food.  Just food.  Yes you might fart after you have a plate of cauliflower

If you’re concerned about superfood safety I”ll say this.  If you’re concerned about overdosing on a spoonful of freshly squeezed wheatgrass juice, unless you’re allergic to wheatgrass juice, it’s really not going to happen.  Superfoods may not instantly save the day or transform your body to a ripped superathlete, they are food.  Don’t imagine that food is a magic pill but likewise, don’t underestimate the power of WISE decisions.  What you DON’T do is just as important as what you DO.

Possible superfood side effects, since it is FOOD, include:  flatulence, body odor, nausea, etc.  Anytime you put a FOOD into your stomach, there are possible side effects and food is no exception.  I have found that any side effects from food usually mean there is something else going on.  If you REEK after eating a food, that might mean your body is packed with toxins that are all coming out of your skin.  If you fart heavily, that might mean you just ate beans.  Is that a “side effect”?  I guess so.

A gradual change in my lifestyle has helped me feel a lot better and look a lot better.  Even though there is a WAY longer list of benefits to becoming healthier, just those 2 reasons are pretty huge for most of us, especially that first one.  IF you feel unhealthy, you probably ARE unhealthy.  People who are VERY unhealthy are usually well aware of it because they feel like chit.

If you feel like chit.  You are probably not eating well or not getting enough exercise, or both.  You “superfood” level is not a metric anyone is measuring (yet) but lets just remember, superfood is food.  It’s exceptionally healthy food, it’s extremely dense food, it’s food packed with vitamins and minerals in great abundance.  For example, popping a vitamin D pill and an Omega-3 pill every day isn’t really going to fill the gaps in your almost certainly deficient diet.  It might help, but you may already have plenty of those and now you have TOO MUCH of those.  Everyone is different.

Almost all of us have SOME deficiency in our diet, and to say that Vitamin X and Vitamin Y are the 2 vitamins everyone should eat, is pretty much idiotic.  One persons deficiency is DEFINITELY not the same as another’s.  Everyone seems to have very different “gaps” in their diet.  Some aren’t eating enough of this, some are low on that.  Most of this is just common sense really.  I’d say most of us are deficient in MAGNESIUM, but if you’re already munching on bunches of bananas every day, you could be just fine (if a bit, er, runny in the bathroom).
For those of that DON’T eat bunches of bananas everyday and don’t really like bananas that much, like me, we should probably find a source of magnesium to fill that gap because it’s a SUPER important mineral.

Superfoods are just food.  Most of us eat a VERY wide variety of food in 2016, and superfoods are just additional items on the menu really.  Most of us have never had CHIA SEED GEL or simple organic pine pollen powder to boost testosterone naturally but that doesn’t mean those are things we crucially NEED!  Everyone has their own needs.  Some guys, the LAST thing they really need is additional testosterone, and some women really DO need a bit more of that one.  Some guys are tragically low in this hormone, while some women really should avoid it and work on boosting their estrogen instead.  It is my aim to learn as much as I can about hormones and minerals this year.

Minerals are more important than vitamins I was recently told by a prominent nutritionist.  Well, of course we need both it’s a moot point which is “more important”.  It’s the same with food and SUPERFOODS.  It’s a moot point which is more important.  If you believe that FOOD is important, then ALL your food choices are important.  You decision to eat horrific junk food is a costly decision studies are indicating without question, while your choice to have an organic vegan non-gmo burrito at chipotles is almost universally known to be a better call.  I won’t mention the bad ones by name, you know who they are.

I admire chipotles for their courage and dedication to the truth.  The truth is like weeds, they will always grow vigorously and they will always return if you remove them.   I’m glad a company like chipotles is able to survive and prosper, I almost see that company as a superhero company like superman or batman.  It seems new “organic non-gmo” fast food restaurants are popping up left and right (in the upscale neighborhoods) and will absolutely be a trend in the coming years.  I’m looking forward to that quality upgrade, although in the hood I think it’s going to be a while before we see that stuff with any sort of ubiquity.   I’m shocked if I even see ONE healthy joint in the hood.  How sad…

Back to my initial point.  My superfood warning is this.  Warning:  If you think a superfood will magically and suddenly transform your mind and body to a superman or wonder woman, you are going to be disappointed almost certainly.  I have yet to find a superfood like that, or a water fountain that will suddenly make you young again, I havn’t really found that either (yet).  Don’t expect instant sudden dramatic changes based on ANY sort of food intake.  It’s a gradual process, that’s how nature works.   Watch a plant grow one day for a demonstration.

If you want sudden drastic changes, you need hard drugs.  That’ll do ya.  Superfoods are just outstanding remarkable food items such as: avacados, ginger, garlic, etc.  Those, to my mind, are superfoods.  The world of superfoods is an astonishing world, just as the world of flowers or the world of birds is an anstonishing world.  I find all forms of nature extremely fascinating and the more I learn about it the more fascinated I become (gradually).  It’s fascinating, it’s exciting, it’s vast and it’s JUST FOOD.

I’m interested in cutting edge pet management strategies to help prevent your furry loved ones from escaping the yard or DESTROYING the house. It’s a concern with some pets, and for those with more than a couple pets, even more so. Love your pets with all your heart, but don’t let them get out of control. I’ve seen 5000 dollar couches OBLITERATED by cats and dogs both. If you don’t manage the herd, the herd will TAKE OVER. Spoil your creatures, play with them and train them if you must. The cat enclosures aren’t really cages at all, they are play areas and that much will be very clear if plop a herd of cats into one of these. For those of you with a PRIDE of cats, you will know how important a solid enclosure can be at times.

Pet enclosures and barriers can certainly help. Of course they must be entirely humane and of course you must never LOCK up your pets for any extended length. The only time you should really “lock up” a pet is during transport in a cage if necessary. I always loved the idea of cat play houses, that’s the idea I think here. A fun enclosure for cats to play. Studies are finding that “play time” is actually important for SURVIVAL, for all creatures. All creatures MUST play to survive. Encourage your cats to play in a safe environment. Do the same for yourself by the way. HealthyCreatures has a strict “play” policy. It must be done every day, without fail. For survival as well as quality of life for all creatures great and small. My fellow creatures, make time to play. Each and every day.

Are these pet barriers really safe? I welcome your comments. I don’t think these will cause your pet any harm, I think it’s highly unlikely, but remember that pets, like humans, are each a unique individual with different needs and tolerances. All of these products are certainly tested extensively for safely but read the instructions very carefully please.

The first 2 are for cats only, the last one works for both cats and dogs.  I’ll admit I’m still learning about electronic barriers, but in some cases they could save a baby’s life or even the pet’s life!  I welcome your comments about pet containment and humane electronic barriers for pet management indoors and outdoors as well.  (more to come for this page…)

Lakanto Healthy Sugar Alternative http://healthycreatures.com/lakanto-sugar-replacement-healthy-alternative-tastes/ http://healthycreatures.com/lakanto-sugar-replacement-healthy-alternative-tastes/#respond Wed, 06 Apr 2016 00:29:13 +0000 http://healthycreatures.com/?p=623   Is it true that there is a healthy sugar alternative with out a down side?  Could it be true?

Is it true that there is a healthy sugar alternative with out a down side?  Could it be true? What’s the catch?  No catch.  It’s a one to one replacement, tastes pretty much the same if you don’t say anything nobody would even notice any difference.  Then after desert you can say, oh by the way, that was a new type of sweetener made from Beets.  There’s no downside folks, this is an alkaline sweetener, not acidic.  Instead of being a toxic poison, this sweetener is actually healthy!  So have another slice of brownie!  No worries with this sweetener.

Is processed white sugar bad for you?  No, in fact, it’s REALLY bad for you. Processed sugars slam the gas pedal, pedal to the metal on the aging process. Those really pale really old looking people who aren’t really that old yet, usually you’ll find they have been eating a LOT of sugar which makes them look much older.

Lakanto is the Creatures Choice.  There are no side effects and there is no downside, it’s just straight up: A very healthy alternative that is far superior in every possible way, and a one to one replacement that is just as sweet and tastes pretty much the same if not better.  Won’t feed the bad bacteria in your gut.  Think about that for a minute.  Most sweeteners are HEAVEN SENT for the BAD bacteria but this stuff does NOT feed the bad bacteria in your gut.  That should be front page news right there.

Lakanto is the #1 natural sweetener in Japan.

 


So what is it anyway?

It contains two ingredients… Erythritol and Monk Fruit in the perfect combination, so that it tastes practically the same as regular white sugar! It’s one-to-one with white sugar in the sweetness profile, so you can literally replace standard sugar with one-to-one measurements of Lakanto in all of your recipes.

Erythritol is absorbed into the bloodstream in the small intestine, and then excreted unchanged in the urine. Only about 10% enters the colon. Because 90% of Erythritol is absorbed before it enters the large intestine, it does not cause laxative effects or gas, as are often experienced after consumption of other sugar alcohols (such as Xylitol and Maltitol).

Monk Fruit doesn’t have fructose, which makes most things sweet, but it has mogrosides. Mogrosides are also zero glycemic with zero calories which is beyond remarkable.  Wikipedia also states that they have additionally been investigated as possible anticancer agents. Monk Fruit’s sweetness comes from natural mogrosides that are 300 times sweeter than sugar. Modern research shows that Monk Fruit extract does not elevate blood sugar or insulin, making it a perfect sweetener for blood sugar and weight management.

Alejandro Junger M.D., Cardiologist and New York Times Best-Seller of “Clean”:

”When I first tasted Lakanto I could not believe my taste buds. How could this no sugar sweetener taste so similar to sugar? To say I was blown away is an understatement. I am officially part of the Lakanto fan club. It tastes great without having any of the toxicity that is found in processed sugar. I use it in my own kitchen and highly recommend it. Lakanto won’t raise your blood sugar levels and it won’t feed bad bacteria in the gut. This is why I recommended it to all my patients when they are on a detox, and even after to maintain their healthy lifestyle.”


Try it, you’ll like it.  It’s a ONE TO ONE replacement for processed toxic white sugar which everyone knows has extremely bad side effects, especially for long term consumption.  Nobody on the planet is saying that processed white sugar is GOOD for your health.  It would be exactly the same as the tobacco lobby once was.  A bit futile really.  Hard to mount an argument in favor of tobacco or processed white sugar, it would be like denying the existence of poison, which is what they both are.  Slow acting but deadly just the same.

If you love to make delicious deserts and try to get some new healthy recipes, this could be at the heart of your experiments.  Why wouldn’t it?  Personally, I love the taste of Lakanto.  It’s an alkalyne sweetener while the white sugar is an acidic sweetener.  Night and day really.  Apples and Toxins.

Apples and Toxins and Acid oh my!  I choose the apple nowadays.  I choose the healthy sweeteners for all my recipes nowadays.  My brownies are beyond delicious and people rave about them begging me to make more!   Once you get into these alternative sweeteners and sugar replacements like this, you can’t go back!  Be forewarned, you have never tasted foods this delicious yet.  You are in for a phenomenal treat as you explore these healthy sugar alternatives nowadays.

It’s like when you first discovered that some small restaurants make far superior burgers than the fast food joints.  I know of a place called Gus’s in Pasadena that comes to mind.  Once you have THAT burger, a fast food burger is never going to be at ALL appealing.  Truth has a way of impacting folks.  That’s the power of metaphysics really isn’t it?  Then later as a vegetarian, you might no longer find those veggie patties packed with soy at all desirable, instead, you might now enjoy a jackfruit sandwich instead.

Remember all those cheap veggie patties we used to think were so delicious and healthy.   Now we know the truth about soy products by and large being highly toxic and 95% GMO in this country now.  There are very few “soy” products I would consume in 2016, but that’s for another post.  The point is: Something that was once very delicious and appealing such as a candy bar packed with processed sugar (and rodent hair most likely) might not be at ALL appealing for you once you have discovered superfood deserts such as coconut cacao brownies with maca and walnut for example.  You find yourself sitting there eating this most incredible desert while at the same time thinking about how HEALTHY this food actually is at the same time.

It’s hard for the brain to even compute this.  Normally something this delicious is BAD for you right?  Turns the tables completely and you’re now eating SUPERFOOD DESERTS instead of toxic sugar drenched teeth rotting and disease causing toxicity like a normal cake or brownies which typically will contain NOTHING of any value nutritionally.

Here you are sitting there eating RAW COCONUT FLOUR, RAW COCONUT BUTTER, RAW ORGANIC CACAO, RAW ORGANIC MACA, and every ingredient is STELLAR for your mind and body.

Why havn’t we been eating this stuff all along?  The ancient Egyptians and Mayans were.  They knew about many of these superfood deserts.  They also incorporate SPIRULINA in their Cacao desert treats.  Superfood Treats.  Superfood Deserts.  It’s a bold new world out there, where have you been all this time?  Maybe it’s time to dive in… I’m no professional chef, and yet I’m having no trouble making incredible deserts simply swapping in the highest quality ingredients.  Swap the white sugar with this stuff.  Swap the butter with Coconut butter.  Swap the flour with Coconut Flour.  Swap the Milk with fresh homemade almond milk.  You wind up with this spectacular superfood desert.  You may go astray here and there with your experiments, but I have found 9 times out of 10, I wind up with something that is beyond delicious, without the guilt!

Sweeteners.  This one is a real eye opener, tastes great as a direct sugar replacement.

Stock up!

lakanto sugar information

Also an amazing sweetener, in case you don’t know.
Raw Organic Maple Syrup is pretty amazing and like fine
wine, there are many great vintages in Vermont especially.

Personally I always have Lakanto AND Maple Syrup on hand.
I use them both very happily for various things.  I never eat
processed white sugar anymore.  I don’t eat “high fructose corn syrup” either.
Read the ingredients.

Some things I always keep stocked.  Lakanto and Maple Syrup are probably my top
two sweeteners and we rarely run out.  The Lakanto and the Maple are fantastic options to have on the kitchen counter when I’m cooking.

Update: 2016-7-30
Guess what.  That lakanto is actually SWEETER THAN SUGAR.  Oh man!
Easy on the lakanto folks, this thing is SWEET.  I’d say use 3/4 cup lakanto for each cup of processed toxic sugar you have been using, maybe a little less.  WOW. WEE, it’s sweet.  Maybe I just hit a dense clump…

Update 2017-1-27
Actually, after further experience, lakanto is really a bit LESS sweet than sugar. There might be some various from bag to bag. I think it varies a little, depending on what you’re making as well, but generally I think you need a little more than 1 to 1. I’d say you need a cup and a half of Lakanto for every cup of toxic processed sugar you would normally use. I think generally it’s a LITTLE bit less sweet than refined sugar so add a touch extra maybe, but again depend on the batch and the recipe you’re following as well as your personal taste, maybe you like it less sweet than normal sugar!

Yes, it tastes the same, no, it’s not really one to one. You usually need to hit the Lakanto a bit harder if you want the same sweetness, right now I”m going to say 1.5 to 1 (lakanto to sugar ratio). Just try it! It tastes the same without the horrible health hazards. Whether you do 1 to 1, or 1.5 to 1, it’s going to be delicious without all the nasty side effects.

Final note: Fact is, the lakanto doesn’t taste as good as raw maple syrup, or maple syrup crystals.  It just doesn’t.  Almost nothing on earth tastes as delicious as maple syrup if you ask me.  So my first go-to is always raw maple, that’s my personal taste.  Having declared that, I sometimes use lakanto as a sugar replacement for things like brownies or cookies.  Hey, it’s new, who knows!  I have only tried lakanto with brownies and cookies where it TRULY shines in my opinion nobody would even notice any taste difference.  Definitely does NOT taste sugar-free, it’s full bodied natural sweet. If I can AFFORD it I get the maple, if not the lakanto is a huge step in the right direction.

The maple I tend to favor for teas and coffees or crazy cool custom tonics, but mostly I favor it when I can AFFORD it. That is a factor with this stuff.

Mushrooms are misunderstood creatures.

Mysterious and magical to some, some species are extremely and powerfully healthy superfoods, and are able to save the world it turns out.  The powerfully healthy aspect is what interests me the most right now for this page.  Those remarkably beneficial mushrooms interest me a great deal.  Some of these mushrooms are truly phenomenal for your immune system and many other things.

Mushrooms have a stigma attached and people have been scared by stories of poisonous mushrooms, you know, the huge weird ones with the red spots.  Off-puting and dubious at best, these are perhaps the LAST thing a lost villager would start gobbling down while foraging late at night in the forest, wandering, alone down the path.  But we’re no longer wandering alone down that path.

Those ones with spots, nope, don’t eat those.  Why gamble on that weird looking shroom, you might say?  Nope, don’t eat em.  You are correct, don’t EVER gamble.  Most tree bearing fungus is medicinal and at the very least edible, but mysterious mushrooms by the side of the path, don’t risk it.  Don’t go foraging on your own or GUESS about mushrooms you might find in the wild, that would be insane. You don’t have to in 2017.

Just order online.  Much safer.

The days of peasants blindly gathering what turn out to be deadly shrooms, are long long gone.  Today we really do know which ones are safe and which are not, it’s a science now and there are really no risks that I am aware of.  The companies listed are extremely vigilant and bonkers about purity and the whole science is extremely exacting with very very strict guidelines and parameters for growing and packaging. These days mushrooms are an extreme science, with purity at the top of the priority list. With such exacting focus, we’re just talking about purity levels unheard of in the past.

Many people don’t realize, some of these “species” are amazingly healthy.  Remarkably so.  And nope, nobody is gambling nowadays, unless you literally are foraging your own.  People have identified species and are selling them online.  Lots and lots of them.  Very safe to buy.  With modern technology, we are now able to achieve levels of purity previously unheard of for long term storage and maximum effectiveness.

Those ancient Chinese doctors with their in depth knowledge of all things shroom, could never have imagined how far we have come today in terms of packaging and purity and research as well.  These modern day mushroom “products” have a come a LONG way from the mortar and pestle of ancient times.

Actually, you really really do need to know what you’re doing before you go picking any mushrooms in the wild, it is a very dangerous undertaking without some advanced shroom knowledge.  I wouldn’t risk it, there’s no way.  I leave mushroom foraging to the experts at this stage entirely.

Basically: Some are deadly and some are quite the opposite of that.  I’m most interested in that second type.  The incredibly healthy ones.  The ones that do unbelievable things to help your body and mind.  The ones the ancient Kings and Pharoahs were eating with great ceremony and tradition in some cases.  The ones that were used in Ancient Chinese medicine almost centrally and principally.  These are a really big deal in Chinese Medicine.  Easter medicine has been VERY much aware of these two mushrooms for literally thousands of years.  They are considered to be very powerful and highly effective in dealing with many health conditions in many ways.

Listen, I don’t have all the answers and never have claimed to have them all.  You can search this blog, I don’t claim that.  Honestly I still have a lot to learn about mushrooms it’s vast.  It’s REALLY vast and a very rewarding subject to pursue in fact.  This video is a great example of just how VAST this subject is.  This is a LONG Video.  It’s a lot of information, but there are PRIZES in store if you look deeply into this.

Even this long-ass video just barely scratches the surface of this topic.

Whether you believe it or not, this is vast and quite hugely captivating.  The more you learn about this stuff, the more fascinating it becomes.  I find this subject incredibly interesting but for now I’m going to leave you with that video to start.  Mushrooms will probably be a major focus for this site.  There will definitely be a lot of discussion around superfood mushrooms, of which there are MANY.  Let’s start with the top three for this post which is long overdue for all the Creatures out there wondering which are the most healthy ones.

Here’s some of the best available options for you to try.  I love both Chaga (the King of mushrooms) and Reishi (the Queen of mushrooms).  This Reishi Powder is really phenomenal.  Both the Reishi powder and the Reishi Oil are the very best available to my knowledge.  Each of those deserves it’s very own blog post. (coming soon)

Then the King.  Chaga is the King of the Mushrooms.   That really says a lot right there.  I tend to eat more reishi than chaga, the chaga seems heavier and more grounded to me.  The Reishi is just amazing.  The chaga seems less exciting but powerful as well, perhaps even more powerful in many ways.  I’m still learning and far from a mushroom expert just yet.  These are the two main ones in the ancient healing protocols across the Far East for centuries.  The Queen and the King.  The King Chaga and the Queen Reishi.  Ancient cultures around the world have all agreed on these two being very important and very powerful.  Today with modern science they are packaging things the ancient healers could only dream of.

 

Last but not least the oil.  This is the very best one you will find at the moment and the very best deal as well for a comparable product you would spend much more and still not be comparable.  This is the most delicious one I think, and probably my favorite, but be forewarned for SOME reason the bottle cap didn’t have a DROPPER included, which I found a little annoying.  Still, it IS the best quality and best deal for such quality, and so it’s a Creatures Choice absolutely for Best Reishi Oil.  Buy another amber bottle WITH a dropper and pour this in, you kinda need a dropper…Hopefully they will fix this silly oversight, but last time I ordered there was NO dropper.  Just a heads up on the top shelf Reishi oil packaging.  I’m going to email them about this and try and get it fixed.

Here’s the most powerful superfood in the world, according to Matt Monarch.
It’s called Triterpene Crystals and it’s the most potent reishi product I am aware of right now.
This little bottle lasts a LONG time, I put about a 1/8th teaspoon in one cup of water
and it’s just the right amount of mushroominess.
You don’t need much of this stuff.  (coming soon…)

and here’s some assorted interesting shroomy stuff on amazon.

Hmm, then there’s turkey tail mushrooms…these are from Paul Stamets, the speaker in the video above.  His mother healed her breast cancer with Turkey Tail Mushrooms.  Really great story Paul tells about his mother who turned her diagnosis completely around with these particular fungi which saved her life literally.  Apparently these destroy tumors, at least it quickly did so for Paul’s mother.   Remarkable story with a very happy ending.  I have not tried these (yet).  I’m told it’s very tasty as well.  If anyone tries the Turkey Tail Mushrooms before me, please leave a comment and tell me how it goes and how they taste and what you might have healed with any of these products really.

This is one of the most powerful pages on this entire site right now, watch for more in the coming year.

Oh, here’s the Fungi Perfecti Turkey Tail Mushroom capsules I have NOT tried yet.  I can’t eat EVERYTHING can I?  Actually, I’m sure I will try this one soon.  I heard this one is actually very delicious, which cannot be said for all mushrooms.

Also on the right below is a grow your own SHITAKE kit. I love Shitake mushrooms in so many different dishes, not quite as medicinal but very delicious and very high in protein! I guess protein is medicinal in a way, but more like essential part of any diet. Protein is good too.


OH, also here’s some GROW YOUR OWN MUSHROOMS kits.  Just add water!  Super easy to grow your own fresh medicinal mushrooms. Oh, and one weird syringe of spores which is very affordable and interesting. I havn’t tried the syringe yet, but at that price it’s a very appealing way to grow your own affordably so I included one red reishi and one black reishi spores. Not sure which is better, I’d like to try both for sure.

I’m pretty sure there’s a health revolution going on worldwide.  There is a tidal wave of health enthusiasm slowly but surely building, perhaps in light of things like radiation and pollution released on both a microcosmic and a macrocosmic scale.  The exterior world of water and air, the interior world of blood carrying nutrients.  Just as fast as we are building guns, and new types of weapons and bombs, we are also developing a keen in-depth knowledge of food and life.  New discoveries in nutrition and lifestyle design are happening worldwide.  The US, China and Russia and beyond!  Each of these “ecosystems” for research and discovery, are in fact producing remarkable breakthroughs almost every day.  There’s just too much interest.  Who doesn’t want to learn more about health and life?  Who isn’t concerned about radiation and other health concerns in the 21st Century.

“It’s estimated that 20 billion tons of chemicals, radioactive waste, and pollutants are introduced into the environment each year, and the belief is that most of these toxic chemicals eventually reach our water supply.” Dr. David Williams

It’s our internal organism that is growing and evolving as well as this world as a whole.  As we explore food and it’s effects, food and it’s purity, we are refining our own physiology and defining it.  As the world releases toxic products in the environment we too ingest toxic substances into our bodies, our own environment.  We are amazing creatures.  Each of us is developed resistance to bacteria and battling this war for survival really.  The crap that we eat??  The germs crawling all over us every day from home to subway to bus to plane to airport.   We can’t even BEGIN to imagine the full extent of a frequent flyer’s exposure to GERMS.  The crap that most of us have eaten for DECADES?  We are truly survivors and the immune system is our SURVIVAL system.  The immune system is getting stronger and stronger.  Each generation gets stronger and stronger and is born with greater potential strength.  That last one is pretty interesting.

In my mind, whether it’s drugs or foods, there has not been enough research done yet about combinations of things.   Synergistic relationships in both nature and man’s chemistry.  External synergists and internal synergistcs.  For example, the amazing relationship discovered between cod live oil and butter oil, is a great “external” example of ingredients that combine astoundingly well for various health reasons.  Gunpowder!  Put three elements together, sulfur, charcoal, and potassium nitrate, and you’ve got an EXPLOSION!  Internally, maybe a good example is ways that hormones might mix and how they might react when mixed somehow into an EXPLOSION of serotonin.  Nobody ever talks about that?  Doesn’t everybody ultimately just want THAT?  I want to learn a LOT more about hormones this year.

Yes, chocolate creates an explosion of serotonin, but can’t we make that explosion bigger by mixing something else in that chocolate?

Things that combine remarkably well.  Put those together and it’s POW.  Something sparks.  Something larger than the one element is created.  All of us are doing this evolution, or we are not.  Whether we realize it or not, many of us are in fact evolving and progressing in this way.  Many of us are NOT evolving, not learning, not growing, just stuck.  If you aren’t learning about synergistic relationships, you are not learning about the magic of nature then you are not a magician.  Be magicians, and study life!  Study nutrition.  Study the Creatures!  We’re actually really interesting it turns out.

These synergistic discoveries are among the most exciting ones in my view.  After all, we are all COMBINING a wide variety of foods in the magic cauldron of our digestive system.  We are all MIXING.   Creating the final “mix” which is US.   Who we really are.

Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts.

Which of these foods play best together and which are bitter foes and should be avoided in combination.  Is something EXTRA created when certain things are combined?  Synergy will be an interesting exploration here at the Creatures certainly I will be following up on this line of thought.  Few things are as exciting as an orgasm, unless it’s a synergasm with something EXTRA that is greater than the sum of it’s parts.  Ok.  I just coined a word.  Google take note!

Some quick examples off the top of my head, and I will do some more in depth posts on each of these to explore further.

Is it a good idea to mix fruit and protein in your meals? (answer: no, not a good idea)
Is it a good idea to mix starch and meat (answer: no, very bad idea.  Hamburger lovers will perhaps strongly disagree with this one)
What actually happens when you mix raw cod liver oil with raw butter oil from grassfed cows?
What happens when you consume a mixture of alcohol and sugar in that cocktail?  (answer: dehydration and a WICKED hangover)

What are some combinations of things to watch for in life and on the road if you are a frequent traveler.  What are some combinations of things from your superfood cabinet that might really make that serotonin explosion happen like never before!  Imagine the happiest and healthiest you have ever felt in any given moment and multiply that by ten.  Would that be of interest to you?

What if the power goes out? How will you filter your water then?  This water filtration system requires nothing but gravity, no electricity required for this one!

This is the best portable gravity water filtration unit and the best 400 bucks you will ever spend my friend, or maybe you spend a little more and get a larger size. I bought the 2.25 gallon version which is not too big, not too small and was about 400 bucks. Just a great idea to have one of these, in case the power goes out and you can’t distill your water. Also great for traveling and emergency situations.

NUff said, no wait…one more thing…

water-filtration-unit-machine-berkey-gravity-filter-system

I’ve never seen a filter this good in all my born days, this is definitely the very best portable non electric water filtration unit I have ran across with my in-depth research over the years. Removes 100 percent of Lead, and other elements as well. This is just a partial list of stuff it filters out though. It filters out a lot of other stuff I’m looking into that now so check back periodically for my latest findings and research.

I’m going to be adding to this page in the coming days but this is a really exciting product to own and a real no brainer for me.

 

What could be more important than your water quality?

Have you ever seen close up photos of complex organic molecules floating in a typical water sample from your area? (also known as microscopic shit, literally in many cases) It’s gross, you can see it in there, it’s real, it’s not a conspiracy theory or something. You know what ELSE is not a theory? Water is extremely important and one of the most important things in your diet by far. Nobody is even trying to disagree with this one, it’s so commonly agreed upon that I can’t think of anything else in the world of health that is so commonly agreed upon. Water and water quality are supremely important for the quality and length of life on earth. Don’t believe me? Of course you do! It’s not really being debated anywhere on this planet by anyone. Drink lots of water, drink high quality water. I will go even further and say, drink lots of water, drink the BEST water you can possibly manifest in your life circumstance.

If you are forced to drink straight tap water, get it tested or look at in under a microscope yourself. After that, you might figure out a way to pay for it. Figure out a way. You may not be able to get the 1000 dollar osmosis system, or the 5000 dollar alkaline machine, but at least scrape enough together for the Big Berkey and you won’t regret it. I’m telling everyone, it’s great for road trips and camping too. Thing is, it’s hard to find systems that remove ONE HUNDRED percent of these heavy metals and other nasty stuff. It may not get all the aluminum (78%) which is unfortunate (and a whole other research project now) but it DOES get 100 percent of the Lead and the Arsenic and many of the radioactive elements as well.

Best Water Filtration Unit

These guys definitely have some big ass tanks and stuff, but these reverse osmosis machines aint too cheap!  They are marking these things WAY up I think.  I found the same thing in Amazon for way less.
These look like the same thing they are selling, but way cheaper! BOO Ya! I don’t personally use reverse osmosis machines but I might pick one up at some point to try it. I’d probably put this under the sink and then pump that water into another machine. That’s how I roll.

I like his explanation of the dish washer hazards. I’d order some of his dishwasher stuff if I had a dishwasher which I don’t. If you have a dishwasher, you might want to get some of his safe soap, he’s right about the toxic bomb that is going on there for most dishwashers I think he’s right about that, I’ve been hit by that bomb a few times visiting wealthy friends perhaps.

Trash your nasty automatic dishwasher soap, oh man.  This needs to be it’s own separate post really.

In summary. Think carefully about every step in your water flow. What is your flow?

Are you brushing your teeth with really crappy water, and swishing God knows what around in your mouth? What about that steam coming out of that dishwasher, is that a highly toxic cloud? Are you showering in chlorine gas every time? Most of all, what is the very best water filtration unit? That has been my quest and remains my neverending quest. If tomorrow someone released something twice as good and twice as delicious, I would start saving up and get that one too! Get into it! Get the BEST quality water and foods. Don’t skimp when it comes to water and food. More and more I am leaning away from sub-par food and water. If you have to drink bottled water, by the way, drink Evian or Fiji water, those are the best options if you are grabbing a bottle or two. If you must, then so be it. I would advise moving away from buying bottled water at all as a near future goal. There are far too many dire consequences from the production of these water bottles yikes. If you must buy bottled water, be sure to recycle. Sometimes you have no choice I guess, and Evian sure is tasty.


 

Water is a huge topic and a huge discussion and for me a huge learning process and research project with a very high priority for me and my family.  Here is more information on the topic of water and water filtration.

Keywords: Description:
filtration system  Two main types of filter media are employed in any filtration systemsurface filter, a solid sieve which traps the solid particles, with or without the aid of filter paper (e.g. Büchner funnel, Belt filter, Rotary vacuum-drum filter, Cross-flow filters, Screen filter), and a depth filter, a bed of granular material which retains the solid particles as it passes (e.g. sand filter).
water filters  A water filter removes impurities from water by means of a fine physical barrier, a chemical process or a biological process. Filters cleanse water to different extents for purposes like irrigation, drinking water, aquariums, ponds and swimming pools.
water systems  If you don’t know what’s in your water, you don’t know what needs filtering out by your water system.  Decide if you can use a do-it-yourself kit or if you’ll need to hire a professional to test your water. DIY testing kits that can be found at home improvement and hardware stores are adequate for identifying the presence of some of the most common contaminants
water treatment  Water treatment involves science, engineering, business, and art. The treatment may include mechanical, physical, biological, and chemical methods. As with any technology, science is the foundation, and engineering makes sure that the technology works as designed. The appearance and application of water is an art.
water filtration system  The accepted definition of “pure” water for most water industries is water that is free of bacterial components. The definition does not include chemical contaminants. The EPA, also, has defined pure water as water free from all types of bacteria and viruses. A water purification system, then, would remove all bacterial components from water without attending to undesirable chemicals and minerals.
drinking water filter

Water purification is the removal of contaminants from raw water to produce drinking water that is pure enough for human consumption or for industrial use.

Substances that are removed by a drinking water filter during the process include parasites (such as Giardia or Cryptosporidium) , bacteria, algae, viruses, fungi, minerals (including toxic metals such as Lead, Copper etc.), and man-made chemical pollutants.

Many contaminants can be dangerous—but depending on the quality standards, others are removed to improve the water’s smell, taste, and appearance.

Affordable Far Infrared Sauna Kit With Many Health Benefits – Learn About Sweat http://healthycreatures.com/infrared-sauna/ http://healthycreatures.com/infrared-sauna/#respond Fri, 20 Feb 2015 07:03:56 +0000 http://dev.healthycreatures.com/?p=32 The latest affordable Infrared Saunas have incredible health benefits! The odds of a heart attack are SIGNIFICANTLY reduced the more you sweat in one of these. This is a huge breakthrough in health technology with reduced power consumption as well.

The post Affordable Far Infrared Sauna Kit With Many Health Benefits – Learn About Sweat appeared first on .

]]>

The far reaching infrared sauna kit is a huge breakthrough in health technology. These space age heaters heat your body, not the air around your body so much. It goes deep, and the room doesn’t get uncomfortably hot so you can breath much easier.  See below for more in depth information about sweat. These units actually don’t use that much power and have been known to be lifesaving in some cases.

Word is getting around about this technology, and once you go infrared, you can’t go back they say. After years of research and even some debate, I recommend far infrared home saunas very enthusiastically. They make many sizes in either Spruce, Cedar, Hemlock and some other woods. Cedar is my pick but if you have allergies or sensitivities you may want to choose the spruce or the hemlock both with far less odor. Look for heaters with very low EMF so you aren’t getting zapped with radiation the whole time. eek.

These affordable Infrared Saunas have incredible health benefits! The odds of a heart attack are SIGNIFICANTLY reduced the more you sweat in one of these amazing things. Recent studies have shown a DRAMATIC decrease in the risk of heart attack the more you use a dry sauna such as these. That’s DECREASE. You are DECREASING your risk the more you use a sauna.

The old fashion style saunas use a tremendous amount of energy heating up this pile of rocks, in addition the EMF, or electromagnetic frequencies produced are massive, not to mention the COST of one of those. In addition there is great waste of energy.

Far Infrared heat is clean heat, delivered optimally, I recommend Cedar wood for that amazing wood smell, but there are other types of wood such as hemlock that is also amazing. The main key is to use your home sauna just about every day. Start your day with one of these saunas and the rest of the day will be like walking on clouds but the most remarkable features are the various health benefits that are proving to be quite significant as the data is coming in from recent studies.

These look pretty swanky to me, with near zero emf!

then there’s this thing, very portable. Portable is good.

Please note, these are FAR infrared heaters, not the type used for drying car paint. Near infrared is a totally different type and would not be healthy at all.

Let’s Learn about Sweat

The main function of a sauna, obviously, is to cause you to sweat profusely.  Sweat does a couple things for us, it helps us eliminate toxins and it also cools us down.  In addition, recent studies are finding incredible benefits for your heart, and after all your heart is a pretty important organ.

There are 2 types of sweat glands in the human body:

#1
Found in the armpits, scalp and pubic area, the Apocrine glands release sweat which contains fat and various organic elements.  These various elements react with the bacteria in your skin and cause you to reek and drive people out of the room holding their noses.  In addition, oddly enough, these glands release hormones and pheromones when you hit puberty, and these are, of course, designed to attract a mate or turn other people on. Ooh baby!

#2
Next, there are over 2 million Eccrine glands which are widely distributed all over the place and are the ones that really produce most of that sexy sweat baby.  However, these produce an unscented sweat which helps to cool you off and is triggered by stress and emotions as well as heat.  Get those nasty toxins out of there!  Out!  Out!

Regulating your body temperature is just one of the things sweat does for you.

There are thousands and thousands of toxic chemicals produced by mankind these days, and these tend to wind up in our body through the food we eat, the air we breath and the water we drink.   Even if you are a raw vegan living on the north pole, you are host to hundreds and maybe thousands of toxic chemicals like drugs, solvents, dioxins, pesticides and worse! If you live in the big city, your body is a toxic bomb filled to the brim with this crap.  One of the very best ways to get rid of all that horrible crap is to sweat. Toxins are bad news, and you need to get as much of that stuff out as you possibly can, as soon as you can!

When you sweat you release toxins that are locked in your fat and the process of sweating greatly improves this purging of nasty stuff. Get it outta there!

The eccrine gland typically releases roughly a quart of sweat each and every day.  Sit your butt down in a nice sauna, and that same amount is release in a matter of minutes. Feels good too. Feels good to get the crap out of your system and your body will reward you handsomely!

Many studies have been done on the vast array of health benefits that are a direct result of this process.

Now here’s the really exciting part. The profoundly positive effects of sweating like this also include remarkable benefits for your HEART health! Just sitting there sweating is very much like exercise! Just sit there and you are actually EXERCISING! Who knew? That level of extreme heat helps with blood flow while you are getting a subtle workout basically, and it also expands the blood capillaries throughout your body which is a huge relief for you heart. Aah, this is nice..

The odds of congestive heart failure are dramatically decreased. So get your butt in there and just sit. Just sit and sweat and count your blessings. Close your eyes and enjoy.  Blood pressure is reduced, the heart gets stronger and your body absorbs more oxygen. These are all really MAJOR health benefits here. The more you think about it, this is perhaps the most important activity you can develop, and I recommend sweating in the sauna DAILY if you can possibly manage it.

But there’s more!

Helps with depression: Ahh, I feel much better now!  Makes me want to SING! LAAAAAAAAA.

Skin conditions are greatly improved. You can expect a nice boost in your energy levels. Helps with arthritis definitely. Your aching bones and joints are soothed. This is a big deal. It’s a really big deal.

It’s a good idea to jump in a cold shower periodically, at least that’s what I do. There are many additional health benefits with the cold exposure mixed in your regimen as well. Lots of people also love to jump in a cold pool or bath. That one takes some getting used to, but once you get the habit, it’s not so hard and definitely refreshing as well as healing.  It can help to go in the freezing cold water progressively for some people, just wade in a little bit at a time gradually or else just CANNONBALL as some seem to prefer.

GERONIMO!!!!!  You can even yell that when you cannonball in.

Saunas are also called “sweatlodges” by many who sit in tents with very hot rocks basically and then people built wooden rooms with a pile of hot rocks in there which was perhaps an upgrade, then electric heaters were used with rocks heated that way but NOW we have another factor here, EMF.  An old fashioned electric sauna from the 50’s and 60’s and 70’s is probably going to have a VERY high EMF, which means your cleansing on one level, but at the same damn time you’re getting hit with all these toxic electronic frequencies that reduce the health benefits substantially perhaps.

Nowadays, we have these far reaching infrared saunas, and it’s a whole new tech, I suspect it came down from the aliens perhaps, but that’s just me.

This is akin to natural sunlight but with no radiation! Most saunas emit a significant amount of EMF which is counterproductive really and reduces the health benefits quite a bit. This is why the first time you try an infrared sauna, it’s really going to blow your mind. Words cannot describe it very well, you really have to experience it for yourself.These new saunas are now pretty affordable, which is exciting, and they consume less power than the old style saunas. Additionally, you don’t really have to sit there for hours anymore, these things heat your body, not the air in the room. It’s a new technology that must be experienced really.  You can comfortably sit and read without the book melting into a pulpy mush.

With these new saunas, you aren’t going to feel that discomfort that the old saunas often produce in short order. Since the infrared sauna heats your body and not the air so much, it’s a lot easier to breath in there which means you can stay longer without passing out or feeling faint.

Here’s some cheaper deals if you want to save some money. Just about any Far infrared sauna is better than nothing. Get that sweat out! Do it every day! Catch up on your reading at the same time, it’s a win win. The book won’t even get ruined because the air won’t get that hot, just don’t sweat all over the pages.

Ok, you’ll miss some days, but at least a few times a week is a HUGE health upgrade for just about everyone on earth. Most of us rarely hit the sauna, can you imagine having one right there, at home! At these prices you can really do it! My goal is 4 or 5 times a week, and I think I can do it with this thing sitting right there!

They’re actually very easy to assemble, it’s basically a big BOX but not so huge as you might think. They don’t actually take up that much room, and they’re surprisingly easy to assemble. Doesn’t get much easier.

Keywords: Description:
sauna therapy  Everyone today is exposed to heavy metals and toxic chemicals. Particularly for slow metabolizers, a very good method to detoxify the body is far-infrared sauna therapy. Its dry, warming energy is highly compatible with the human body. It heats the tissues several inches deep, enhancing metabolic processes.
far infrared sauna  An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat which is absorbed by the surface of the skin.[1] Traditional saunas heat the body primarily by conduction and convection from the heated air and by radiation of the heated surfaces in the sauna room.
infrared sauna therapy  Far Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone.  Through the subtle heating, Far Infrared sauna therapy boosts our immune system, increasing the amount of white blood cells and killer T-cells. It is an excellent therapy for promoting healing, reducing muscle soreness, muscle spasms and relief for rheumatoid arthritis [3]. Research by NASA has shown that far infrared on the cardiovascular system was a great way of keeping astronauts hearts’ in optimal condition.
benefits of infrared sauna  You can burn up to 600 calories in one hour and it’s a total detox!  Detoxification of the body can optimize the efficiency of the immune system.  Toxins in the body can accumulate in the skin and the liver and sweating is one of the body’s natural ways to remove toxins…. As a result, detox helps avoid disease, prevent illness and improve general health and vitality.  These are only a few of the benefits of infrared sauna. FIS heats the body from the core, therefore, it allows you to sweat up to 7 times more toxins than traditional saunas.

Because infrared rays penetrate the body through conversion, there is a deep heating effect in both the muscle tissues and internal organs without putting too much burden on the heart.  Our body reacts to the increased heating through the
natural cooling process of perspiring.  Through the perspiration process,acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells (especially zinc, lead, nickel, cadmium, etc). The pores of our skin open and discharge waste products shedding any old skin cells leaving the skin glowing and clean, with improved tone, elasticity, texture, and color.
Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on infrared treatments and have reported many provocative findings. In Japan, there is an “infrared society” composed of medical doctors and physical therapists dedicated to furthering infrared research. Their findings support the health benefits of infrared therapy as a method of healing.
benefits of sweating Sweat is vital. You’d die without expelling this mix of mostly water and salt, which prevents overheating. And it’s a really good thing if you sweat a lot. “It’s men who are most in-shape who will sweat the most, and the most quickly, because their bodies are conditioned,” says Neal Pire, a New York-based personal trainer and fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine.  The benefits of sweating are many fold and numerous.

Benefits of Coconut Oil and it’s Many Uses http://healthycreatures.com/benefits-of-coconut-oil/ http://healthycreatures.com/benefits-of-coconut-oil/#respond Fri, 20 Feb 2015 07:45:03 +0000 http://dev.healthycreatures.com/?p=49 Coconut oil is truly an extraordinary superfood with amazing benefits but you might be surprised how much BETTER everything tastes when you cook with this stuff.

Coconut oil is truly an extraordinary superfood with amazing benefits but you might be surprised how much BETTER everything tastes when you cook with this stuff.

In other words, of all the superfoods, this is one of the most delicious ones in my opinion. Learn about superfoods here at Healthycreatures and expand your awareness. Coconut oil is a very powerful superfood with many uses.  Let’s explore some of the many profound benefits of coconut oil shall we?

Of all the oils, coconut is one of the very best for cooking. I buy coconut oil by the gallon and keep a stockpile going at all times. I use it for cooking, brushing my teeth, skin, hair, and as a carrier or medium for various other nutrients. Apparently coconut oil is an excellent delivery system for various other complimentary super foods like MSM. Sometimes I use it on popcorn or as a general replacement for butter. It’s excellent on steamed spinach and asparagus. Great on toast or bagels. Sometimes add it to certain teas, again as a powerful carrier agent. In other words, it helps your body absorb other things far better, which is quite significant really.

I use it with so many dishes nowadays. My salmon is drenched in this stuff and you have never had salmon this good in your life. I might share my recipe on this site at some point soon.

Coconut oil got a bad rap in the 90’s for containing fat, but in recent years researchers have discovered that some fat is actually very good for you.  The kind you find in avacado, coconut and all types of nuts. This is the GOOD fat folks. The kind you NEED and the kind that doesn’t make you fat. Sure if you gobble up ten avacados and an ounce of coconut oil every day you’ll gain, but if you simply replace your current cooking oils with this one all you’re going to see are health improvements, not weight gain.

Stop buying low quality oils for your cooking and discover the benefits not only for your health but also the taste of your food! Most cooking oils have been shown to increase the bad cholesterol and are extremely unhealthy once you heat them. Only a few oils are actually healthy to cook with. Coconut oil is one of these types of oils and has many benefits as well as many uses besides cooking.

Also look into “oil pulling“. Coconut oil is an excellent choice to swish around in your mouth for ten minutes or so before spitting it out. It pulls lots of kinda gross stuff out of your mouth like pus apparently, so yeah, spit it out. I try to do some oil pulling every morning.

You are going to find many uses for this amazing oil which is amazing for your skin and to heal your skin, so it’s really extremely useful both internally and externally. Once I got into this stuff, I never turned back. I have ten gallons stacked up in the closet at all times, that’s how central it is to my health regimen. Oh, by the way, coconut oil is the best known CARRIER oil on the planet, which means, you mix it with stuff like MSM or whatever else, and the body absorbs the MSM a lot better. Great with MSM by the way.

In this video, internationally renowned natural health physician Dr. Joseph Mercola discusses the benefits of coconut oil and it’s amazing properties both raw and cooked.

Many people brush their teeth with coconut oil and experience profound benefits. It’s an incredible healing agent for your skin and hair and kills fungus on your toes. Excellent for massage and for oil pulling both of which have very powerful benefits. If you want to buy the best stuff at a really great price, here are some excellent choices for raw organic coconut oil.

Nature’s Way EfaGold Coconut Oil – 16 fl oz

Viva Labs Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 32 Ounce

and here are 2 one-gallon sizes and one 5 gallon size.
I tend to buy the 1 gallon size and it lasts for months.
Pro Tip: Keep your pail very clean, make sure you use a very clean spoon, and don’t let anything contaminate your main container, and pack up smaller containers periodically so you don’t open the gallon that often.  No need to refrigerate!
Be aware that the oil will be SOLID state when it’s cold, and LIQUID state when it’s hot. Either way is great.

Here are some interesting deals on Ebay as well…

Chia Seeds are Super Nutrition for Humans and Birds – How to make Chia Seed Gel http://healthycreatures.com/chia-seed-gel-is-easy-to-make/ http://healthycreatures.com/chia-seed-gel-is-easy-to-make/#comments Fri, 20 Feb 2015 07:49:52 +0000 http://dev.healthycreatures.com/?p=51 Chia seeds contain more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon! more calcium per ounce than milk, and more protein than any plant-based food, including soy.  No wonder everyone is excited about […]

The post Chia Seeds are Super Nutrition for Humans and Birds – How to make Chia Seed Gel appeared first on .

Chia seeds contain more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon! more calcium per ounce than milk, and more protein than any plant-based food, including soy.  No wonder everyone is excited about this little known power packed nut, and yes birds eat them, probably have been for 1000’s of years. Apparently Chia seeds are also great for horses! Fantastic source of vitamins for creatures great and small. From the lowly bushtit to a large muscular horse, these little seeds are powerful good.

Whether you’re feeding humans, birds, or horses, get the best. Don’t feed them pesticides, those low quality seeds are also far less nutritious. These are the best chia seeds to buy for birds, horses and people as well. Whether they are bipeds or quadrupeds or winged, get only the best quality chia seeds for your loved ones.

Turns out, chia is hydrophilic (means: water loving) and can absorb up to 10 times it’s weight. Frequently used for weight loss by making you feel full, there are many uses, in this article I hope to present more as I discover them as well as my picks for the best organic chia seeds. I’m a big believer in going organic for a long list of health reasons, but also for a long list of political and economic reasons. I’m limiting my focus to health here at this blog, but there are certainly very compelling reasons for a society to grow organically instead of spraying with atrocious pesticides you wouldn’t want any where near your home. If they were spraying that stuff in your back yard, you’d probably get very sick. Here at HealthyCreatures, we prefer healthy creatures and we aim to help the sick creatures, starting with their diet.

Salvia Hispanica, known as Chia, is a species of flowering plant in the mint family and is native to southern Mexico and Guatemala.  Do birds eat chia seeds?  Absolutely, in southern Mexico they have very healthy birds I suspect.

Turns out, these tiny black seeds are loaded with antioxidants which inhibit free radical production. In addition, chia seeds are 40% fiber. Eating more fiber can help you feel more full and aid in digestion. Chia seeds also contain a high level of protein from a vegetable source. Fiber and protein combined can help to aid in weight loss, adding to the list of benefits from this superfood. A study where patients were given chia seed showed lowered blood pressure and improvements with type 2 diabetes.

How to make Chia Seed GEL:
Simply Add a heaping tablespoon of chia seeds to a glass of water and wait a half hour to an hour. You can stir it periodically while it expands dramatically before your eyes. That freshly SPROUTING nutrition is powerful healing indeed.

When you add water to Chia seeds, this superfood will puff up to many times it’s size and becomes this amazing Chia Seed Gel.  THe nutritional benefits are greatly amplified. Like all seeds, they get puffy when soaked in water as they are coming to life, or ‘activated’ in other words they are beginning to SPROUT really. And yes, they are far more nutrition after they have been soaked because there are more living enzymes present. 

The health benefits of ALL nuts are significantly increased when they are soaked in good clean water and best of all, it’s really really easy.  Just mix a table spoon of seeds with a cup of water and watch them expand like magic and “drink” up the water!  I tell the kids they are MAGIC SEEDS, which is not far from the truth really.  This kind of nutrition is very magical for both humans and birds, we need this stuff and who can afford expensive vitamins which are synthetic and usually made with coal tar.  Skip the vitamins and eat the whole foods.  The right whole foods.  The best whole foods. It’s just as simple as that.
Very educational video on Chia seeds. He really presents some fascinating facts and has done his research. Chia seeds and chia seed gel are virtually unknown foods to most people in the western world, but this is truly a fantastic superfood with numerous remarkable health benefits.  I like taking a teaspoon dry for an upset stomach, that’s a hot tip right there, especially for those who are lactose intolerant.

Can birds eat Chia Seeds? Yes, most birds love chia seeds, and some go BONKERS for them. I’m going to more advanced research on this because healthycreatures is about ALL creatures great and small, and keeping them healthy in these toxic times. Just be careful not to over-feed, but that goes with all creatures.  I personally love birds and my Dad is a bird watcher with amazing high powered binoculars!  (I wish!)

For humans, there are NO side effects from eating Chia seeds that I have ever heard of. Period. Birds eat these things, people eat them, billions of them are growing as we speak and nobody get’s hurt by any of it.

Chia-Seeds.jpg
Source : thegardenbasket.ca

No toxic man made chemicals or additives. Just seeds. Very tiny, filling and surprisingly power packed seeds.

I don’t think there are any side effects, these are an ancient time tested pure and safe FOOD. Food doesn’t have side effects unless you’re allergic. If you’re allergic to something, of course, don’t eat it! You’re not going to see a long list of possible side effects listed on the package with a simple ancient food like this, it would be silly.

These tiny seeds are cool, you get about a BILLION of them in the bag, but I haven’t actually counted. Don’t let their tiny size fool you, they are packed with nutrients.  Extremely healthy with many interesting benefits. This is one superfood with a colorful history in the ancient world. Native american long distance messengers in Mexico would bring a sack of chia seeds which would sustain them and keep them well hydrated for the long trip.  You can live on these in a pinch in other words.

Chia Seed Gel is super easy to make, just add water!

I try to eat some every day, there are so many important vitamins, mainly vitamin E and there’s lots of it. Also great for digestion and slow hydration. There’s not much taste really, but it’s a great filler food if you’re trying to lose weight. Fill up on chia seed gel for a change of pace and watch how you shed the pounds. I sometimes have some before meals so I’m not too hungry and over eat.  Of course, you can also mix the chia gel into food as some healthy filler to

You probably get millions of them in every bag but I’ve never counted. I would love for somebody to actually count how many are in a pound. I’d be curious to know but it might take you a while to count them! Get a comfortable chair and a magnifying glass!

I highly recommend Chia Seeds to anyone that is not allergic, although I’ve never heard of this being a common allergy at all.  If you’re allergic to NUTS of course, you will want to consult with your doctor before trying chia seeds, I’m really not here to advise you in these matters, just talking about nuts and how I love them.

Here are my top picks below.

Remember. For the humans out there..Always soak nuts in water before eating them. All types of nuts. They begin to SPROUT unless they are dead nuts. Just soak em for a few hours and the nutritional content is hundreds of times greater in some cases. Almonds, walnuts, any type of RAW UNPASTEURIZED nut. Soak it. Get in the habit. Thank me later. They also taste MUCH better after soaking.  They get puffy and flavorful, bursting with live enzymes I think.

I don’t think this is advisable for animals however. If you can get your bird to eat soaked mushy nuts, more power to ya! Certainly would be healthier for all animals, but I don’t think it will go over very well because birds like crunchy nuts I’m told. I would love to hear your stories, if anyone is able to soak the nuts for a few hours before feeding your animal successfully please do let me know about it. I’d say for birds, leave those seeds crunchy, but birds are like people with unique personalities, some birds might love them soaked! For me, they do have more flavor after soaking and certainly they are healthier when “sprouting” in water (or starting to sprout). I generally soak my chia seeds for an hour or two.

It’s definitely a matter of personal taste though, some might soak them way longer and even store the gel in the fridge but I don’t recommend it. Soak em for a few hours, and eat em. Eat em while they’re sprouting, or think they’re sprouting. When they get some water they just explode with nutrition and flavor. All (living) nuts will do this. Be sure your nuts are not pasteurized (or “heat treated”), even some “raw” seeds are actually NOT raw in fact. Know your nuts!  Consult with your bird or horse if you’re uncertain, they will let you know how they prefer their food.

Anyway, here are the top quality organic seeds again, best ones I have found so far.  Never settle for less than organic!  All of these are organic and extremely high quality for people and birds both.  Birds love Chia seeds, they know a good thing when they spot it I guess.  HEY RALPH!  LOOOK! DOWN THERE, NEXT TO THAT ROCK.  IT’S A CHIA SEED!  I’m going in…Talons outstretch, they dive for the tiny chia seed, salivating at the beak…

These three are great deals on chia seeds, and very high quality. Also great for horses! Who knew!!

If you’re looking for cheap non-organic seeds, or something very healthy to feed the old MULE or HORSE (who knows right?), here’s some non-organic options for HORSES, but I bet a human could live on these no problem if they wanted to save money and live healthy. I wouldn’t eat it, these are for HORSES, but whatever. I seriously doubt it would hurt ya.

Some more deals, in bulk. For HORSES.

The second row is NOT organic to my knowledge and is for HORSES. That one deal says “equine” so your horse knows it’s ok to eat. As you may know, some horses CAN read so they had to put that on there to re-assure the more literate steeds in the herd. For non-believers, just watch “Mr. Ed” the 1950’s tv show for proof!

Superfood Supplements that Amaze – Colostrum Powder is Actually Delicious http://healthycreatures.com/bovine-colostrum-benefits/ http://healthycreatures.com/bovine-colostrum-benefits/#respond Fri, 27 Feb 2015 08:29:33 +0000 http://dev.healthycreatures.com/?p=170 Daniel Vitalis is a superstar in the alternative health world.  He’s certainly a favorite of mine and he’s extremely knowledgeable on a wide variety of health topics including superfood supplements.  […]

Daniel Vitalis is a superstar in the alternative health world.  He’s certainly a favorite of mine and he’s extremely knowledgeable on a wide variety of health topics including superfood supplements.  I like this rare video because it’s very educational, he’s not just promoting his colostrum powder, he’s going deep into the discussion so you can really learn about bovine colostrum.  It’s a controversial subject for some odd reason and the comments always reflect the heated nature of this particular topic.  The only thing more controversial is the raw milk vs. pasteurized milk debate which is extremely volatile for some people and for some weird reason.  It never ceases to amaze me how some people are shocked to hear about raw foods that have been consumed for 1000’s of  years, like they are some weird new thing.

My only concern is where he kinda evades the question about shelf life, but other than that it’s really excellent material and worth watching a few times. I’m still not clear on how long the  colostrum powder will keep in the refrigerator or on the shelf.  What about in hot or muggy weather?  Truth is, this stuff so delicious,  it tends to be gobbled up long before shelf live is a consideration or concern anyway, at least that has been my experience.  I have had no issues whatsoever with spoilage, even when it is in the fridge for many months, it seems to stay very fresh and delicious in this powder form.

Compared to milk, this stuff has a very very long “shelf” life, but once you open it, you should keep it in the fridge.  I’ve had mine in there for almost a year, and it tastes just as fresh as it did the day I first opened it.  What I actually do is, I keep two containers in the fridge.  One I almost never open, that is my main stash, the other I periodically refill from the first one and that is the one I open regularly.  Hope that makes sense.  One is rarely opened, the other I use all the time.  Lets call the first one my MASTER stash and the second one my ACTIVE stash.  When the active stash gets low, I refill from the master stash.  That way, the majority of the powder is rarely opened.  Anyway, it’s probably not even necessary, these superfood powders seem to keep really well, certainly far far longer than milk for example.  Milk goes bad almost instantly, this is one of the things I love about the powder. It’s far more nutritious than milk and it keeps far longer.

I welcome and encourage positive constructive dialogue in the comments but let’s try not to get all emotional over it, remember, it’s MILK.  You squeeze an utter, and this stuff comes out.  First the colostrum comes out, later the normal milk comes out.  The colostrum is a totally different food, but they are both naturally occurring foods that people have been consuming for 1000’s of years.

It’s not like some new thing that’s just come out.  People have been squeezing utters for thousands of years, lets keep this in perspective folks.  Actually, colostrum is totally different than milk, but still, it comes from an utter.  You squeeze the utter, and this stuff comes out.  Don’t have nightmares or fist fights over it folks!  It’s not gross at all, it tastes delicious like cheese really.  If you like cheese, you’ll love colostrum powder almost definitely.  There are many bovine colostrum benefits which are explored in some depth in the video.

Pine Pollen is used as a natural testosterone booster and has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.  Many couples are reporting very dramatic and satisfying results in the bedroom, but this is about much much more than your sex life.  The fact is, in todays toxic world, our hormones are usually way out of wack.  With such imbalance in the hormone department, many health issues soon arise.

CLICK HERE TO BUY THE BEST PINE POLLEN

CLICK HERE TO BUY A MORE AFFORDABLE SMALLER SIZE PINE POLLEN


Still, this is definitely also in the aphrodisiac category. Has a very fresh lively taste, I always loved the smell of pine pollen. I just put some in water and I love the taste, it’s like something from my childhood that I always wanted more of, but would be fun to try and discover uses in some recipes. That’s one of the things that excites me the most about cutting edge nutritional advances and discoveries and tests is that, after all that, and we know it’s amazing for the body and it’s safe, then how can we use these things in some recipes! For example, have you ever had raw organic cacao deserts, you kinda can’t go back to a Nestle bar.  I’m going to find some recipes for pine pollen and post them here as soon as I can.
.


Pine pollen powder is just amazing. For men and women both. It helps balance hormones as well as providing testosterone. I’ll report back with more on that as well.  For most of you, this is going to be a new taste sensation as well as a powerful addition to your food supply.

Maple Syrup – Healthy Alternative to Toxic Sugar Actually Tastes BETTER http://healthycreatures.com/maple-syrup-alternative-sweetener-sugar-alternative/ http://healthycreatures.com/maple-syrup-alternative-sweetener-sugar-alternative/#respond Fri, 20 Feb 2015 06:01:22 +0000 http://dev.healthycreatures.com/?p=6 Maple Syrup is my favorite alternative sweetener and is considered a SUPERFOOD folks.

The post Maple Syrup – Healthy Alternative to Toxic Sugar Actually Tastes BETTER appeared first on .

Maple Syrup is my favorite alternative sweetener and is considered a SUPERFOOD folks. There’s really NO reason to consume processed sugar with sugar alternatives like this easily available today on the web.

In this case, I think this “sugar alternative” actually tastes BETTER. This is why it’s not very difficult to switch over and begin consuming a superfood with amazing health benefits to replace a horrible processed food with literally dreadful side effects. Don’t believe me? If you don’t believe that processed white sugar is really really bad for you, I don’t know where you’ve been for the last few decades as evidence has been mounting on this subject.

The highly toxic nature of processed white sugar is almost universally expounded by everyone in the world of health and nutrition.  There really are no health experts claiming that processed white sugar does ANYTHING good for you.  In fact, white processed sugar should have a “possible side effects include” warning but since it would be such a huge long warning there would be no room on the package.  If you want to SLAM the accelerator pedal to the floor on the AGING process, white sugar will do that for ya.  Best to avoid completely and substitutes like maple syrup make that easy, because it tastes even BETTER (by far).

Please note that I’m talking about RAW maple syrup, NOT Aunt Jemima. There’s a HUGE difference. Aunt Jemima is a processed food containing very little actual maple syrup. See below for some examples of real raw maple syrup. To me, it’s the most delicious superfood and sweetener of them all by far.

I like the Mansfield maple syrup a lot, but all three of these are lightyears beyond processed sugar if you’re hoping to improve your health and your diet these are all very wise decisions after perhaps a life time of bad decisions.

Keep in mind that these are like fine wines.  While processed sugar is always exactly the same, these maple syrup products come from maple “sugaries” that are usually old family owned businesses much like vineyards, where a work of art is produced, not a mass produced toxic substance without personality or character.

Over time you may find that you prefer certain maple farms over others, but ANY of the fine choices below will be LIGHTYEARS beyond processed sugar for both health and flavor.

Hidden Springs Maple Vermont Maple Syrup, Half Gallon Grade A Medium Organic, 64 Ounce
Organic Grade B Maple Syrup 64 Oz (1/2 Gal) Plastic Jug (Bpa Free)
Mansfield Maple- Gallon (128oz) Pure Vermont Maple Syrup Grade Fancy

 

For more in depth information, here’s a great video to learn more about processed sugar alternatives for vastly improved health, weight loss and much more….

Mushrooms are incredible if they are edible. Don’t go harvesting your own in the wild without a serious expert on hand or years of training, but if you want to grow some on your own safely, I have some hot tips for you below. This video covers some information about Oyster Mushrooms, but that’s just the tip of the shroom. Learn about mushrooms and order a grow your own kit (see below).

This video shows a great way to grow shitake mushroom on logs, which is dope, but if you want a much much easier really fun way, check out the links below.

Oyster mushrooms are excellent in salad, speghetti and much more. Slice em up and fry them in some coconut oil with some sea salt and onions to start your speghetti sauce. I have been back and forth about mushrooms over the years, I have heard some say they are bad because they are moldy or something, but in recent years I have come to realize that mushrooms are incredible and extremely healthy if you eat the right ones. Get the organic ones, or grow your own organic ones.

I have only recently come to realize just how MANY types of edible mushrooms there are! In addition to oyster and shitake, I have recently discovered Reishi and Chaga which are amazing little known mushrooms of great significance medicinally.

There are these incredible mushroom growing “kits” out now and I’m into it. I’m into it! I want to order a bunch of these. Great fun for the kids too.

When you’re done with it, the entire thing is biodegradable so you can just dump it into your garden out back or into the compost.

These are incredibly healing foods and well worth the care and attention of growing your own easily at home.
I havn’t found a CHAGA mushroom grow kit yet! They must be tricky to grow. Buy you can buy some ready to eat with one of these links below.

Health industry legend and superstar health guru Gary Null PhD. talks about what we can do to strengthen our body’s response to radiation exposure. Be sure and watch all the way to the end where he talks about baking soda baths, and how to do that, and use THAT much baking soda with salt, wow!

Radiation protection is something the whole world is thinking about, or should be thinking about. It has become very clear that we are a negligent species in our use of nuclear power so recklessly. With a MAJOR spill in PROGRESS at Fukushima in Japan, it has become clear to me that things are really out of control and there are unfortunately many more disasters waiting to happen, and that’s very depressing to tell you.

Apparently undaunted, Japan is about to open a NEW plant with many more planned. How is this not insane? Here in America we also have this truly insane agenda moving ahead full tilt. Between the US and Japan, there are literally hundreds of nuclear power plants and any one of them could produce an EXTINCTION EVENT. Scientists are in complete agreement on this point. Construction plans continue world wide for these abominations.

radiation protection

 

Well, we’re fighters right? We have to deal with it. We have to find ways to survive. Find ways to prosper in the face of insanity. It’s what I do and I urge you to get smart and learn as much as you can about radiation exposure and dealing with it or minimizing it.

Both Chlorella and Spirulina are very powerful choices in the fight against radiation and I have listed the two very best options in my view just below.
Sun for Chlorella and HealthForce for Spirulina. My top choices from Amazon. Both are lightyears beyond most of the other companies.

 

Never settle for less with your superfoods, that’s my motto.

I love the baking soda bath idea towards the end of the video. After x-rays or any radiation exposure, take a baking soda bath. Half a pound of sea salt and half a pound of baking soda in your bath! WOW, that’s a lot! I put some baking soda deals below, with so many many powerful uses, I like to have a LOT of that stuff on hand. If you’re putting half a POUND in each bath for a while, you’re going to be going through a LOT. Just be careful about putting things in your bath you can clog up the drain with things like clay or coconut oil. I don’t think baking soda will clog your drain, but I’m not sure yet on that. If anyone knows whether baking soda might clog your drain or not, please leave a comment, I’m not sure on this yet.

Here are the best chlorella and spirulina choices on Amazon by far.  This stuff has become a staple in my diet and I can feel a huge difference on so many levels.  Highly recommend. Also posted is a book about these amazing superfoods.

Sun Chlorella 500 mg 120 Tablets
Chlorella tablets (1250 count, 250g), cold-pressed, 100% pure, from Raw Power Organics
Healthforce Spirulina Azteca, Powder, 500-Grams
Radiation Protection and Dosimetry: An Introduction to Health Physics

 

Learn more about chlorella

Three baking soda choices.  The one on the right is 13.5 pounds!
Baking soda is one of the few products that you don’t have to worry
about quality between brands that much.  It turns out, baking soda
is baking soda for the most part, this brand is just fine.  You don’t
have to buy some special expensive version of this one although
you can certainly pay much more if you want (for the same exact thing).

OK OK
You REALLY want to pay more?  I get that.
The one below costs more. Here ya go.
Maybe it’s a little better!

Matt Monarch talks with Daniel Vitalis about Colostrum.  It’s no wonder so many of the people in India revere the cow as sacred!  Most people think of colostrum as some disgusting yellow milk that is far from appetizing but the TRUTH is that, the powdered form is absolutely delicious by just about anyone’s standards.  It basically tastes like some amazing cheese but the truth is, this stuff is lightyears healthier than “cheese” which is probably not healthy at all.   The takeaway is this:  Eat colostrum powder, don’t eat cheese.

I rarely drink milk, but this powder is a staple in my diet for sure. It’s not something I gobble up in large quantities, but every once in a while I’ll have a spoon full and it really does have a long list of well documented benefits. I love the benefits but I also love the long shelf life, I have never experienced any spoilage, just remember to store it in the fridge once you open it and it should last a really long time. I’ve had mine in there for almost a YEAR now! It still tastes like the day I got it. I’m not sure what the official “shelf life” is but I’m looking into it. Milk definitely spoils way faster than this powder, I’m not sure if it loses potency over time, I’m still looking into this.

BUY HERE

I can’t imagine anyone disliking the taste. You can also click the banner below to buy some. This is the highest quality colostrum powder, don’t settle for less than the best.

Continuing discussion with Daniel Vitalis and Matt Monarch part 3.  I get the feeling Daniel could talk for hours on the subject of bovine colostrum without repeating himself much at all.  You can really see that he is very passionate about many health topics and deeply involved in the movement as a whole.

His talks are both informative and inspirational, if you like this one, you will probably enjoy his other talks.  Take notes!  Get informed, get educated.  It’s funny how most people have never even heard about colostrum and certainly havn’t tried it themselves.  The powder is a remarkable superfood and well worth exploring and trying for yourself.  Get the best, don’t settle for less. Many of us treat our CAR better than our own body. We’ll get the top grade fuel for our car and then go buy some low quality fuel for our body. Something is wrong with that picture. Treat yourself right.

Daniel Vitalis is a leading health, nutrition, and personal development strategist as well as a nature based philosopher. In seeking to answer the health challenges of modern humanity, Daniel deeply immersed himself in the natural medicine, nutritional practices, and lifestyle pursuits that supported our ancestors in many generations of robust health, powerful immunity, and intentional longevity. This Quest has lead to a unique, non-dogmatic approach to invincible health and personal development that he calls “Shamanic Nutrition”, a strategy based on the timeless understanding of the elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.

Daniel is a very interesting health guru and one of my favorites these days.  His company “Surthrival” makes some incredible foods including the best colostrum I have come across.  His “Pine Pollen” is becoming very popular and is another favorite of mine.

Did you know that there are 77000 known synthetic chemicals that have been manufactured since the 1940’s? They are lurking in the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. These toxins enter our bodies through our skin, lungs, eyes, and mouth. In a recent video clip from the sold-out Longevity Now Conference in Costa Mesa, CA, I share some simple steps that can help you address removing toxicity and restoring healthy hormone balance.

David is a super star in the health world and I like his attitude in many respects.  The more you learn about him as a person, the more interesting  he becomes.  I think he’s one of the most interesting people I have ran across in my travels.  Apparently he’s really not in this for the money, although I don’t think he’s suffering terribly or anything.

David Wolfe shows you raw maca in Cusco, Peru while discussing the magic of this extraordinary superfood.  If you’re interested in superfoods maca is a fascinating cruciferous vegetable well known as an aphrodisiac but it really has many other benefits. Apparently the workers in Peru are very very happy people and some believe their happiness really comes through in the food. I know I feel happy when I eat some. I like to mix it in my almond or coconut milk with a little coconut sugar for sweetening. It’s almost like a desert that way, but super healthy. I’ve never tried the raw root, or taken a bite from a root, I just get the pure organic powder from Peru. I would love to try a bite of the actual root, but for now, I’m happy making my smoothies with the ground up root powder I’m getting.

Since this maca is the most popular version, Cream Maca is also the most deeply researched. Studies performed in Peru have shown it to increase stamina, endurance and strength by nearly 20%. Another study from the UK in 2009 found that after just 14 days of taking Maca, cyclists were able to reduce their time on a 40 km circuit by nearly 8%. Cream colored Maca is also excellent to elevate mood, including helping people overcome low level depression or lethargy. Other major benefits people report from taking our Cream Maca powder are: improved mental focus, heighten sex drive, improved fertility and hormonal balance.

The first two are certified organic maca powder, the last one is maca extract tablets.

Marine Phytoplankton is definitely one of the greatest health breakthroughs of the twenty first century so far. I think you could probably live on it, but I’m not sure about that. I think it might be the most powerful superfood of them all the more I read about it.   This stuff is a remarkable superfood found in great abundance in the ocean. More and more people are discovering the powerful benefits of this oceanic treasure.

It has an oceanic flavor that is hard to describe.  This food is very easily absorbed by the body and goes directly to work providing valuable nutrition you might not be getting from your normal foods.  If you’re never tried it you’re in for a unique experience.  I don’t think there is any other food on the planet that provides this type of nutrition.  It is truly an extraordinary superfood and one that you will be hearing more and more about in the years ahead I’m sure.

People have been farming the earth for centuries, and from the ocean they have been fishing, but now we are literally farming this green stuff as people have discovered it is probably one of the very healthiest oceanic foods you can possibly eat.  Not so sure about the fish nowadays, but this stuff is remarkably healthy.  I’m not actually sure how the pollution and radiation in the ocean is effecting phytoplankton quality, but I will be looking into that soon as I can and add some more information here.

The benefits include lots of extra energy without stimulation like coffee.  It’s a great choice for this in high stress environments who needs lots of extra energy and a very sharp focus at the same time.  High in chlorophyll (type A), EPA, Astaxanthin, Canthaxanthin, phospholipids, beta carotene, zeaxanthin, violaxanthin, antheraxanthin, vaucheriaxanthin and complete protein, this is a real powerhouse.

You can order some right here. Go get em tiger!  It’s powerful stuff. Here are a few options. I enjoy the liquid and the powder and I don’t really have a preference one way or the other.

One of my favorite superfoods is the incredibly healthy and delicious colostrum powder. There are many benefits and advantages to eating this, one of man’s earliest most primal foods. Men and women have been drinking colostrum for centuries, probably since before recorded history. There are so many growth factors and living enzymes present it’s mindboggling. Nature’s perfect food it is often called. This man is very articulate and has done his research. He knows a lot about this stuff, it’s a real passion for him clearly and I share his passion. Learn about superfoods here with us at HealthyCreatures.

I have posted a number of videos on the subject and it’s well worth taking the time to watch them all. What is more important than your food intake? Learn as much as you can as soon as you can before you are seriously ill from malnutrition like most of the world today in both rich and poor countries. Seriously ill from malnutrition doesn’t just mean starving, it also means living on low quality food items day in and day out. I have very successful friends and family who are very well off or make decent money, who will go and buy a cheap cut of meat instead of a nice cut, and who will remodel their kitchen before their diet. I just don’t get it. If you can afford it, get the best for you and your family members at every opportunity. Spend the money. Get smart. Learn from everyone. Make changes. Make adjustments. Find the best stuff. Learn about superfoods.

That’s really what healthycreatures is mostly about. Sharing my discoveries with family and friends so they can get the very best quality stuff and upgrade the quality of their lives and the lives of their children. I have spent a lot of time finding these products and now you don’t have to. I’m going to present them here on the site for people who might be interested in expanding their knowledge and jump starting their health with cutting edge breakthroughs in the world of nutrition and superfoods.

I personally love the taste of Surthrival Colostrum powder, but if you don’t fancy the taste or even want to try it, they also have capsules so you don’t have to EVER even taste it. I eat some every day, I love the taste. At the moment, it’s helping me fight an infection and I can feel it working definitely. Fantastic product with a remarkably informative spokesman. One of my favorite superfoods definitely. I don’t think I could drink the raw yellow liquid colostrum, I think that might gross me out a bit, but this powder is actually VERY tasty. It’s really delicious, I guess it tastes like cheese more than milk. It’s very cheesy. Hard to describe, but it’s extremely delicious for most people who actually have tried it.

This not milk, it’s totally different than milk. A totally different food. It’s a deep subject and well worth exploring further.

Birds eat Chia Seeds, ancient civilizations ate them, people today are starting to discover them. Of course if you are allergic to them, do not eat them. There are NO side effects from eating chia seeds give me a break!

Side effects are in her title as an attention grabber I think.

Nope, I don’t think there are any side effects, these are not meds, these are an ancient time tested pure and safe FOOD. Food doesn’t have side effects generally speaking. If you’re allergic to something, of course, don’t eat it!

Extremely healthy with many interesting benefits. I’m going to post some more videos on this so be sure and look through the healthycreatures site and learn more. I’m going to show the process of making the gel in the next video so you can see the gel form before your very eyes.

These were used by Mexican Indian runners in ancient times. They would carry a sack for long journeys. They could stop, add a little water, and have a meal on the go. The real benefit for them was they retain their hydration for a long time, and slowly hydrate the body. These long distance runners in ancient times kept their bodies well hydrated with Chia Seed gel.

FIVE things to know before you buy:

1) You usually will NOT want to buy Chia seeds from China. Best to avoid those as a general rule, these are not high quality.

2) Buy only 100 percent pure organic if you can.

3) Always choose “certified organic” this is the best type.

4) Don’t buy low quality super cheap seeds (quite possibly GMO).

5) WARNING: Do NOT eat the seeds from a Chia Pet, these are industrial grade Chia seeds and are not meant for consumption as a food!

Here are my top 3 picks for Chia seeds on Amazon.  These are all excellent choices, you can’t go wrong with any of these. Of course organic is the best bet.

How to tame kale’s bitterness.

Kale is a fantastic rich full superfood that is excellent raw, cooked and juiced.  Mix it into soups, salads, omelettes, soufles, whatever.  It’s also a VERY popular choice for juicing because that juice is perhaps the
best liquid food you can possibly drink. I like to mix some kale in with my apples and carrots for powerful fresh juice.  You can even throw in some organic ginger to give it some extra bite and healing power.  Learn about superfoods here at Healthycreatures and improve your quality of life.

As with most superfoods, you can buy the powder or the juice, and each form has many versions. Here’s 3 interesting powders
for the juice I think it’s best to make it fresh, not buy it from Amazon:

Do you clean your tea kettle? EVER? Do you LIKE that metallic flavor in your tea and coffee? Are you using an ALUMINUM kettle (REALLY bad news). If you must use a metal kettle, be absolutely sure beyond a doubt, that the metal is stainless steel or cast iron and with NO aluminum. Kinda major actually, you need to know what kind of metal you are heating your food and water in. Aluminum definitely DOES leach out into the water or food and is a pretty serious health risk, while SHOCKINGLY there are a LOT of pots and pans and kettles that ARE aluminum. People just don’t realize. I should post some good frying pans too here actually, maybe that’s my next post. Many frying pans also contain toxic aluminum and should really just be thrown out honestly.

This video will explain a great way to clean your funky metal tea kettle but even MORE exciting is the alternative idea I found just below. Seems so obvious and makes me wonder, why isn’t everyone doing this? Why isn’t everyone using THIS tea pot shown below instead of their old burnt metal toxic dump pot?

I used to use metal tea pots like the one in the video, for many years, but I stopped when I remembered this other thing called, ready for it?

GLASS.

 

Fact is, aluminum does in fact leach out when you expose it to high heat, and it’s probably leaching out into your water and your favorite hot beverages. Upgrading to a glass or stainless steel kettle could be one of the biggest health upgrades of the year if you drink a lot of tea.

Sad, but true. Even more sad that many people don’t even realize this, or realize how much BETTER their favorite hot beverage will taste when the water is cooked in GLASS. There’s a reason that most restaurants use these glass pots for their coffee machines…and their customers LOVE their coffee even though it’s actually not gourmet at all.

I used to use my metal teapot til it was smoking and the handle had melted off into a huge plastic glob. Then, I’d keep using it, and wonder to myself, hmm, why does my tea taste like Transformers and Robocops have been swimming around in there. Why does my tea taste like a tank in the desert.

Why does my tea have a metallic odor and taste like licking the eiffel tower on a hot day?  Or like licking a TANK in the desert.

Medelco 12-Cup Glass Stovetop Whistling Kettleglass tea kettle,healthy tea kettle,glass kettle

Since I switched over to the glass tea kettle, I really do feel much healthier. Of course, there are thousands of reasons for that beyond this one reason, but I swear by this glass kettle for anyone who is using a metal kettle right now. You should really upgrade, you’re thank me later, big time. Come back to this site and buy some other stuff to thank me! Check back periodically anyway, I have lots of cool stuff coming soon here.

Anyone who knows me nowadays knows that I’m a super health nut and I was even before I had my baby boy recently, but now…I’m kicking it into overdrive folks, hold onto yer hats!

If you’re a healthycreature or would like to become one, there is a LOT to learn here in this health niche, oh man. I am fortunate enough to have a powerful network of health gurus but in addition to that folks, I’ve been really into this stuff for a while now. My friends already know. Unfortunately, some of the VERY coolest stuff isn’t on this site yet but stay tuned and don’t miss out!

Stay tuned!

Check back often! Become a HEALTHYCREATURE and discover vibrant health in this lifetime.

The good news is, there’s lots of amazing stuff coming soon that you may not be aware of.  Life hacking, best in class food and gadgets, superfood discoveries, toxic food alternatives that are even BETTER.
For example: Have you tried the Mung Bean Fettucini yet? You actually can’t go back to white flour pasta after you try that.  OH man I love that stuff. It’s actually super filling though, so don’t make too much at once.

How about a 16″ Bayou Classic Iron Skillet?

I’m out. More soon. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Does your tea pot look like THIS?

glass tea pot replaces your burnt out metal pot

Then you need one of these. Either Glass or stainless steel, either one is a really great upgrade for most folks:

Hmm, some people might want to order a nice HOT PLATE electric stovetop to go with that. If you’re switching from an electric tea kettle, you might need a heat source to go with your new glass kettle. Here’s a couple single burners, a double burner, and a really wild double burner, with an OVEN attached!

Then there’s these if you don’t want to deal with a hotplate.

Echinacea is a truly amazing herb and herbal supplement best known for it’s cold fighting and immune system boosting qualities.

I prefer this Swiss brand and have been using it for decades with great success. The moment I feel a cold coming on, or the possibility of a cold creeping up on me, I take a few drops. Some people hate the taste, but for me it’s well worth getting over it.  If you already HAVE a cold or flu, this stuff will shorten
the length of your illness.

You can get liquid or capsule form so if the taste is way too gross for you, you probably want the capsules. Ok, some say it’s the nastiest thing they have ever tasted so be warned, it’s not going to taste like candy and probably wont make you say things like “yum” or “mmm”.

Zand is my favorite and has been for decades, it just works. Although I haven’t tried the capsule form I have no problem with doing a few drops of the liquid, for some the capsules might be a huge factor in their success. After all, if you can’t stomach it, you’re not going to take it. At least try the liquid and if you can deal with it, it’s really something special this stuff. Keep your immune system strong and do a few drops periodically even if you’re feeling great already.

ZAND Insure Immune Support 4 OZ

If you are sensitive to nasty herbal fluids that taste kinda like mud, you might prefer the capsules to the liquid.

Zand Insure Herbal Immune Support, 60-Count

Ok here are 3 deals.  2 oz, 4 oz and 8 oz.  Notice the price is about the same for each one!
Might as well grab the 8 oz, the one on the far right.  I never run out of this stuff!

Dr. Haskell briefly reviews his personal experience with the dangers of high dose iodine.
We are not getting enough iodine in our foods which is a real concern but high doses of iodine is not a good idea. A few drops of a quality iodine mineral supplement on the tongue daily is a wise move, and this could be the most important health supplement of them all. Both our food and the soil we grow our food in is drastically lacking in this once plentiful element. This is a very important mineral for your body.

There are in fact some excellent food choices for iodine consumption including kelp which contains iodine, but most people aren’t eating much kelp these days. I switched from pasta to kelp noodles long ago. I also enjoy mung bean fettuchini, watch for my next post about pasta replacement ideas.

Even before radiation was a global issue, it was crucially important for our soil to contain adequate amounts of iodine and today the soil is tragically depleted. Today with current nuclear issues in the world, it’s even more critical. Even without radiation exposure, our bodies desperately need iodine and our bodies are not getting it. In addition, the body doesn’t store up iodine as it does for some things. Again, the body does NOT store up on iodine, it just RUNS OUT.

The fact is we are not getting very much iodine in our diets and it’s a serious concern. Dr. Haskell recommends 3 MILLIGRAMS as a safe dosage, but I just take a few drops every day. Don’t think for a moment that this is the only doctor taking iodine and making sure their families are getting regular dosage. If there is one element we all should be including in our “lifestyle” it’s this one.

This is the brand I use myself, but get something, any brand.
I got the 8 oz bottle and it’s very nearly tasteless, like a breath of air.

I have listed both iodine and indium here, I plan on researching the difference soon but they are both valuable minerals to be sure. STOCK UP!

On the Friday edition of the Alex Jones Show, Mike Adams of Natural News mans the command post. Mike talks with David Wolfe, one of the world’s top authorities on superfoods. The topic is radiation protection in these troubled and toxic times.

Turns out, Boron is one of the best minerals you can take for radiation protection. Learn as much as you can about this important mineral.

This powerful mineral will NEUTRALIZE radioactive neutrons that are produced by these “hot particles” that are showing up nowadays. Hawaii is apparently getting 5 hot particles per day which is quite serious. Fukushima is an ongoing threat to the a whole lot of people right now and the days ahead, sadly.

It’s well worth exploring some commonly found cancer fighters such as Turmeric. This herbal remedy is also a delicious spice found in some of the most delicious dishes known to man. If you have ever had an Indian meal, then you have had turmeric most likely.

This might be obvious commonly known stuff for some of you. Turn the music down to spare yourself the dreary music but these videos are well worth watching. I advise the MUTE button for this one, just a heads up before you play it. I’m going to try and shut the audio off if I can… While you’re here, scroll down and pick up some super high quality turmeric I chose some excellent options for those of you who’s cupboard might be a little bare in the spice rack area.

Turmeric is commonly used both internally and externally. Internally it is found in many of the most amazing Indian dishes you have experienced in your life, perhaps most of them. Externally it can be applied with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or castor oil which will help the herb penetrate deeply.

I love turmeric. I use it in soups mainly, but it’s great for many dishes. Usually curry dishes incorporate turmeric and I love curry more than almost any food. I love vegetable curry, chicken curry, lamb curry, beef curry and fish curry. For those of you that don’t like the taste, I have included a very high quality product in capsule form so you don’t even have to taste it to get the really amazing cancer fighting benefits. It’s interesting that one of the world’s most powerful superfoods is already very commonly found in most people’s kitchen cupboard but if you want to get the really high quality stuff, check these products out. I have also included a book on the subject which is very very affordable and looks most informative if you’re looking for more in depth discussion.

I’m extremely obsessed with Superfoods and nutritional health breakthroughs in the 21st Century. Personally, I have made the switch away from breads and pasta. Instead of normal pasta, I eat this Mung Bean Fettuccine pasta which to my taste buds is actually WAY better. Most pasta substitutes just don’t cut it for me, but this one is the bomb. It’s incredibly healthy, surprisingly filling and tastes even better than pasta. I’m stocking up on this stuff, oh man. The black bean is great too, but my favorite is the adzuki bean pasta. Honestly, I’m stocking up on all these!

Don’t over cook it though, it cooks really fast. Make sure to boil the water first before you throw it in there, and a little goes a long way with this stuff. I think it’s actually way more filling than normal pasta because I can’t really eat that much of it before I’m full but it’s not a heavy feeling. You feel full but not uncomfortable.

This take speghetti to a WHOLE other level and your health as well.

Raw foodists simply soak the pasta in water overnight. Works great, tastes great, yum. I make it a point to NEVER run out of this one!  This company actually makes a few excellent pasta alternatives besides the mung bean, you can sample them all with the 2nd one from the left (variety pack).

Instead of damaging your health with conventional pasta, this replacement is actually a super food and extremely healthy.

What the heck, STOCK UP on some MUNG BEANS too. How about TEN POUNDS OF THEM!!

In 2017, everyone needs to get their eco-act together.  Stop using plastic straws (and throwing them out).
We are throwing BILLIONS of plastic straws into the ocean!  That’s BILLIONS folks.
Those plastic straws are EVIL and not at all FUN as they appear. Repeat after me, EVIL STRAWS. NOT good. NOT good.

Re-use your bottles, whatever they are.  Get some nice re-usable non toxic bottles from the local water store or else some glass ones. Stop throwing out so much plastic.  Make plastic sculptures, make plastic jewelry, anything but throwing it out.

I hope someone figures out how to recycle all that plastic they’re finding in the ocean. I guess that’s our future, pulling plastic out of the ocean and re-using it but..until then, how can you look at footage of birds with a stomach full of plastics and not feel bad about this plastic crap we’re killing these birds with!  How can you look a bird in the eye without looking down in SHAME.

Every time you sip from a re-usable straw, you could be SAVING A BIRD!

Use glass or silicon straws, and re-use them. How many plastic straws have YOU personally put into the ocean? This is a big part of your toxic footprint on this earth actually.  Straws. Who woulda thought? Stop filling trash cans with plastic straws around town!  It seems silly but if you saw a BILLION plastic straws floating around on the beach one day,  those happy bright colors might not seem so happy and bright anymore.

In addition, these plastic straws you are slurping out of, are NOT the good plastic.  These are leaching toxic chemicals into your body, they use the absolute WORST and cheapest possible plastic for those straws.

Here’s some silicon straw alternatives for those occasions when you DO need a straw. (sensitive teeth/gums, etc)
Personally I never really NEED a straw, and I just stopped using them altogether, but if you DO need straws
maybe for the kids…here ya go. Some silicon straw alternatives.

They are free of heavy metals and plastic and they won’t break like glass.
Silicon straws can easily be tossed into your purse and reused.

A Vancouver photographer shares the shocking images he saw at the Great Pacific Garbage Patch near Hawaii.  

if you want glass straws, here’s some more options, but be VERY careful, you can easily chip a tooth or break a tooth. In addition, the straw could break and be quite hazardous, so generally I recommend the silicon straw alternative. My glass straw broke in the first week!

Still, glass straws can be nice to have for some things, here’s some deals on glass straws.
Certainly is better than plastic straws, as long as you’re very careful. I would not advise glass straws for kids.
But ok, here’s some glass straws! For grown ups!

Here’s some BPA free water bottles. (never buy plastic water bottles again!)

Oceans are silently choking on our plastic pollution. Plastic and synthetic materials are the most common types of debris.  It’s shocking to see the ocean wildlife choking on our plastic waste products. It’s one of the saddest things you will ever see in your life.

plastic pollution in our oceans infographic

Recycle and Re-use. That is the mantra of a civilized human being in the twenty first century. Keep those two words in mind at all times. If you can’t recycle it, then use it again. Use it again and again. It’s a very satisfying feeling to know that you are truly doing your part to keep this plastic out of the ocean. You really don’t want to be responsible for some bird choking to death on some stupid plastic product.

Please re-use your water bottles. Stop throwing plastic in the trash. Throw them in the recycling bin. Be mindful of your toxic footprint.  Better yet, don’t buy plastic bottles like a mindless idiot.  Stop buying that crap, especially those tiny insane plastic drinking waters.  In addition to winding up in the ocean in most cases, the manufacturing of these godawful plastic bottles is SERIOUSLY polluting the local rivers near these horrible manufacturing plants.  I should do another blog entry about this, this is reason enough to stop using these horrible products.

Whenever I’m in a meeting and they start passing out those horrible tiny plastic water bottles I always say something like “no thanks, those are not cool” or “no thanks, those are really uncool”.

This is our world, we must be the change we want to see in the world. I am very careful to recycle plastic bottles and everything I possibly can. I stopped using plastic straws. Every little thing you can do adds up, and others will take notice and learn from you.

Stop putting toxic chemicals into your body as well!  Most plastic bottles are leaching toxic chemicals into your drinks! Especially if they have sat in the sun for any length of time so don’t leave those plastic drinking bottles sitting in your car anymore.  Really bad move.

Stop using them and just throwing them out. Start RE-using. Save some birds! Save yourself while you’re at it!

Better yet, use GLASS bottles. That’s what I do. The water tastes better as well. I buy apple cider in large gallon size bottles and then I re-use them for my water storage. The water really does taste way better and there’s no plastic flavor.  Once you go glass, you can’t go back!

In this video, Dr. Group discusses the Toxic Effects of Aluminum. Check all your cookware and be sure you aren’t cooking on any aluminum pots or pans. It’s a very serious concern and a really big deal. Many of us are not even aware that we are cooking with aluminum or the health ramifications of that. Choose healthy cookware such as Iron or Stainless Steel for a huge health upgrade.

If you’ve been using aluminum cookware for years and years, you might want to consider some heavy metal detox as well, like zeotrex, which I highly recommend.

Please. Don’t cook your food on aluminum pots or frying pans. It’s a very bad habit. I used to do it, but I stopped. I had no idea. I didn’t even realize I was cooking with aluminum. What a massive upgrade! Throw out your aluminum frying pan, do it today! Get yerself a good old fashioned IRON skillet and the iron tea pots are pretty dope too but I havn’t tried them I use glass. The all clad stainless steel is amazing if you can afford it, if not, IRON is just fine. I actually think either one is a great choice and a huge upgrade definitely.

I love my IRON skillet, I went through maybe a dozen crappy aluminum frying pans before I finally realized how horrible they were and threw it out. They also don’t last that long while this iron skillet kinda last forever really. Nice frying pans that last forever and contain NO aluminum. You can even throw it in the oven, which I often do, because there’s no plastic handle or plastic grip like most aluminum pans.

Anyway, here’s some great choices if you are using an aluminum pan, throw it out and get one of these deals below. I swear food actually tastes better too, there’s nothing like cooking some coconut oil or some macadamia nut oil in an Iron Skillet. That bayou 16 incher looks amazing, I might have to get one of those too. Check out this cast iron tea pot also I just spotted, its pretty amazing, I haven’t really tried cast iron tea pots yet but I will. Just make sure you get IRON or STAINLESS STEEL, that’s all. Either one of those is going to be a massive health upgrade for you if you’ve been cooking with aluminum products like so many of us have been. After many years, that toxic buildup is quite significant and needs to be addressed if you want to be a healthycreature. Healthycreatures don’t cook with aluminum pans. I even stopped using aluminum foil, although my wife squaked and squaked about that one…We are all such creatures of habit really, we just get stuck in our habits and don’t even think about the option of CHANGING our habits.

I recommend keeping your iron skillet oiled for longer life and to keep the rust away. I hang mine on a hook on the wall so it drips dries after washing and it never seems to rust that way! Kinda cool trick. I actually don’t really keep mine oiled but I should.

If you’re frying pan is of questionable construction, toss it folks! If it has a plastic handle, it’s probably aluminum. If it has teflon coating, it’s probably aluminum.

If it’s silver and doesn’t say “stainless steel” on the bottom, it’s probably aluminum. If it’s cast iron you’ll know it because there won’t be a plastic handle and it will be very heavy. Buying my iron skillet was one of the best investment I have made in the kitchen. Another one of those OBVIOUS but not so obvious things. People come over and marvel at my Iron Skillet actually, it’s funny.

I tossed all my frying pans with the plastic handle that did NOT say “stainless steel” on the bottom. If there’s a plastic handle, and it does NOT say “stainless steel” on the bottom, chances are VERY good that it’s an aluminum pan. Toss it folks. Order a real iron skillet and toss that crappy old pan.

replace your toxic frying pan with an iron skillet

If you HAVE been using aluminum cookware, you probably should consider detox solutions, and choose the very best like the globalhealingcenter products.

Zeotrex® is an herbal blend that helps rejuvenate vitality, energy, mental clarity, and overall wellness through the detoxification of chemicals and metals.

Lakanto is a sugar substitute that is a really big deal. It’s a one to one replacement for white sugar that tastes the same exactly. With options like this, why would we ever eat processed sugar? The Japanese have been using this alternative sweetener for years with fast growing popularity there.

Lakanto sugar contains Erythritol and Monk Fruit in the exact balance required to make it tastes almost exactly like sugar. You can literally replace standard sugar with one-to-one measurements of Lakanto in all of your recipes henceforth. Can you imagine the health benefits of removing such a toxic substance. For those of you that don’t know, white processed sugar slams the gas pedal to the floor on the aging process. Those REALLLY REALLY old looking people who aren’t actually that old, usually ate LOTS of processed sugar but they aren’t really that old you find out. Whoa, you’re only 35, you look about 70 man, you should cute out all those sweets before you look 90.

“The first ingredient in Lakanto is Erythritol. It is similar to Xylitol in the way it is made. However, in the body, Lakanto’s Erythritol is absorbed into the bloodstream in the small intestine, and then excreted unchanged in the urine. Only about 10% enters the colon. Because 90% of Erythritol is absorbed before it enters the large intestine, it does not cause laxative effects or gas, as are often experienced after consumption of other sugar alcohols (such as Xylitol and Maltitol). Oh yea, it also takes just like…white sugar!

The other ingredient in Lakanto is Monk Fruit. Monk Fruit doesn’t have fructose, which makes most things sweet, but it has mogrosides. Mogrosides are also zero glycemic with zero calories and on Wikipedia at the link here, it states that mogrosides have also been investigated as possible anticancer agents. Monk Fruit’s sweetness comes from natural mogrosides that are 300 times sweeter than sugar. Modern research shows that Monk Fruit extract does not elevate blo0d sugar or insulin, making it a perfect sweetener for blo0d sugar and weight management. ” – Matt Monarch

Julie Hoffenberg and Sarah Woodward bring you in depth information about MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane). This is one of the best videos I ran across explaining MSM but I’m still looking for more. Most people have never heard of MSM but they do know what Sulfur is. It’s a really really important mineral that most people are lacking nowadays. Helps with inflammation and is often used in skin products. Mixes well with aloe vera and coconut, but what doesn’t right? Apparently this MSM supplement is a really big deal, especially as we age our sulfur level drops severely.

According to David Wolfe’s people, this is THE most important supplement you should be taking, but of course everyone has their opinion on that.  Apparently we are severely lacking in this crucial mineral. I try to take a tiny bit each day in a glass of water although I do forget sometimes. It’s not very exciting or glamorous. It’s not flashy and has almost no taste. You aren’t going to get all excited when you try it, but I do feel a difference. Sulfur is one of the most important minerals and almost all of us are severealy lacking. Stock up!

Here is some MSM in capsule form from 2 of my top brands SOLGAR and SOLARAY. You really can’t go wrong with these two companies.
