It can act like a cup of coffee, waking you up, but it also helps remove all the bacteria sitting in your mouth that regular brushing doesn’t eliminate.

I love condiments. I use them with every meal so it is important for me to know what is in them. It is so easy to go to the market and buy your favorite condiment without paying much attention.

There are certain small amounts of heavy metals that are nutritionally essential for life. However, there becomes health issues when the body absorbs high levels of heavy metals. Heavy metals accumulate in the body when there are large amounts. The body cannot properly metabolize them and they accumulate in the soft tissues of the body.
Thus, making the body toxic.
If heavy metals are not detoxed from the body, serious damage can occur from all of the toxic build up. Long-term exposure can result in muscle degeneration, Alzeimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, neurological problems, learning disabilities, cancer, to name a few.

There is an awakening going on. A global awakening that is manifesting a transformation, which begins with a personal inner shift. In order to make the changes that are in alignment with this awakening, people need to get healthy in mind, body and spirit. This is the time to be at your ultimate best. For many people the first step to get in alignment is detoxing the body.
The body is full of the toxins we are forced to ingest by the air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink and the chemicals in products we use.

As I walked through a major grocery chain store a couple of days ago, I passed a sign that said I could save 10% on my groceries if I got a free flu shot... So if my bill was $250, I save $25 and won't get the flu! Wow, what a deal, these major corporations must really care about my health.... Wait, what!? Do you know what's in a flu shot these days ? I do! Every where I turn there is someone telling me that I need to inject myself or my children with a vaccine so we won't get the flu. Which flu, by the way, because aren't there 1000's of strains of the flu? AND.. doesn't it seem that when you hear of someone getting the flu shot, they end up with the flu anyway, and they justify it by saying if they hadn't got the shot, it would have been much worse!
You also have to stop and wonder who is profiting from the flu shot industry? It's a multi-billion dollar industry so someone is making a LOT of money - and on what? Keeping you healthy so you don't get the flu?? NO, I'm sorry, but it's quite the opposite my friends...

Garlic is an important plant to grow because it is so good for the body! It is also easy to grow at home. Including garlic in one's daily life adds many benefits.

The pollution is so awful in China that there is toxicity seeping into the food supply and there have been high levels of heavy metals detected in most foods grown there. To grow this medicinal root, plant it in the spring or fall. The bigger the garlic cloves that are planted, the bigger the garlic bulbs produced. Here is how to grow your own garlic...
