According to history, one of the world’s most beautiful women, Cleopatra of Egypt, ate Okra, also known as “lady finger or gumbo”. It is characterized by its green color, elongated and tapering ridged pods infused with double row of seeds and slimy texture when cut open. This integral member of the cotton family is indigenous to regions around the Nile in North Africa and the Middle East for it was discovered dating as far as 3500 years ago in Ethiopia. Early Egyptians are known to love its taste. Okra later transcended to North America en route slave trade and then to Europe, Asia and South and Central America. During World War II, the shortage of coffee beans made them use the seeds as a substitute for coffee. This incident made the word “okra fever”. Since then, its popularity never disappeared from local markets to convenience stores throughout the world and throughout the year. Continue reading
It is a known fact that cancer cells survive in an atmosphere of less oxygen. As such, excess of oxygen causes their degeneration and death, hopefully leading to the disappearance of cancer. This is exactly where alkaline foods make their entry because it has been found that alkaline cells (i.e. cells with a high pH) have more oxygen retention and carrying capacity than any normal or acidic cells. When such an alkaline state is reached in an area in the exact neighborhood of cancerous malignant cells, it’s believed that it becomes impossible for those cells to survive. The reason is the excess oxygen that these cells are carrying supposedly leads to the destruction of the cancerous cells. Therefore, it is extremely important that we consume alkaline foods and hence prevent our body from becoming acidic and acting as a magnet for diseases. Continue reading
If you take antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, you are only getting it half-right. A new class of nutrients is just as important – maybe MORE important. In five or ten years, most people will be taking these nutrients right along with vitamins and minerals. Yet few are taking them now. These nutrients do not exist in most of the foods sold in health food stores, whether organic or not. Almost any cooking or processing destroys these highly complex molecules. What’s more, all the antioxidants and other supplements you take are half as effective – or worse – if you don’t get THIS nutrient either in your food or in supplement form. Continue reading
Kombucha is an ancient Chinese drink and its history dates back to over 2000 years and is referred to as the ‘Immortal Health Elixir’. It is a sweetened tea that’s been left to ferment; the bacteria and yeast allow it to reproduce which gives it the appearance of a mushroom. The therapeutic effects of the tea has been proven to fight and prevent cancer as well as arthritis and other diseases. Even though many have testified to this, the FDA still warn people off consuming the tea. Continue reading
If you were to ask the critics, they would say that a positive thinker has a distorted view on life. However, if you had to ask the psychologists, they would tell you that positive thinkers are not afraid of life’s challenges or negative experiences and are quick to seize opportunities and learn from life’s experiences. What are your thoughts on the power of positive thinking? Have you ever felt like you were drowning in negativity? Is that even a possibility with so much help and advice out there? Is it just wishful thinking that if you think positively your health will improve? Is there any evidence that supports the belief? Well, actually, there is, and there is much to be said about how powerful positive thinking really is! Continue reading

With another Valentine’s Day upon us, not much thought is spent on the true meaning of love. This is what The Bible says, love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails… Continue reading

High-level executives from some of the U.S.’s largest food corporations are meeting with the FDA behind closed doors this week to lobby for a mandatory federal GMO labeling law. Could it be that bad press and consumer backlash have dulled the enthusiasm of these former biotech cheerleaders? On the other hand, is Big Food just cozying up to the FDA so they can derail the growing organic and anti-GMO movement and finagle a federal labeling law so toothless it will not be worth the ink it takes to sign it?
