Green and Glorious | 7 Top Green Foods for Weight Loss

Weight gain is a common problem that affects millions of people across the America. According to statistics, 68 percent of the U.S. Adults are overweight (have a BMI higher than 25) & 38 percent are obese. While there are many contributing factors, the main cause behind this epidemic is processed foods. Between the sugars, chemicals, trans fats and other toxic ingredients that are present in modern day 'food', our bodies are severely nutrient deficient and have turned into warehouses for toxins. In order to lose weight and regain overall health, the first step that needs to be taken is to DETOX. The most effective way to detox is through exercise and diet change. As the saying goes "

The Hidden Secrets of Bread

The Or Hachaim, Rabbi Chaim Ben Attar, In his Commentary on Bereshis (Genesis) 18:4 explains "Bread Symbolizes the Depths (Pnimiut) of the Torah... Bread Nourishes the Body and Soul." If prepared correctly, bread has the potential to be food for the soul. In this commentary, the Or Hachaim talks about water and bread: water symbolizing the pshat (simple meaning) of the Torah and Bread symbolizing the depths (pnimiut) of the Torah. In the following verse, the Or Hachaim asks why did Abraham invite the angels to dine with him? Angels don't need to eat! The Or Hachaim answers that food has spiritual secrets. As it says in Proverbs 18:25 "The righteous eat to satisfy their souls." To satisfy t

Abnormal Gut Microbiota Linked to Autism

Front page articles on MSN and Yahoo this week read "Gut Bacteria Offers New Hope for Autism". The articles explain that changing gut bacteria alleviates not just stomach problems for children with autism but also behavioral issues. In a new trial, researchers gave 18 autistic children a 10-week treatment of fecal microbial transplants, transferring live gut bacteria from healthy people to the patients. The children experienced 20-25% improved behavioral symptoms and an 80% reduction in stomach issues. Wow! Finally the conventional medical community is catching up to what holistic doctors have been saying for decades. Ten years ago, conventional doctors were convinced that autism was i

Natural Alternatives to Ritalin

ADHD is commonly thought to be caused by dopamine deficiency. I say commonly thought because very little is actually known about neurotransmitters and the way that they function. Dopamine is our main focus neurotransmitter. It helps us stay focused and to achieve goals. It is responsible for feelings of pleasure and reward. It is a powerful growth hormone booster. Another important neurotransmitter is serotonin, our well-being neurotransmitter. Serotonin helps balance mood, calm anxiety and relieve depression. It is believed that ADHD kids are low in dopamine and higher in serotonin, but, it is still unclear as modern medicine is just at the tip of the iceberg in understanding how the human

Is Refined Flour Killing Us? The Diabetes Epidemic Explained

Diabetes rates have grown to “epidemic” proportions. The latest statistics revealed by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) state that 25.8 million Americans have diabetes. In addition, research from the ADA shows that 79 million Americans have pre-diabetes. That is 25% of the US population! These rates are expected to continue to soar in the next few decades. One of the main causes of Type 2 Diabetes is a diet consisting of refined carbohydrates and sugars. Carbohydrates are long chains of sugar molecules. But not all carbohydrates are treated equally by the body. There are huge differences in how different carbohydrates affect blood sugar and insulin levels. Carbohydrates that tr

Healthy Bread (Lechem Metukan) According to Maimonidies

Maimonidies (The Rambam) was a famous Jewish physician, philosopher, and Torah scholar who lived in the 12th century. He composed many famous medical works. In Sefer Refuot, he explains how to make Lechem Metukan (Healthy Bread). He writes "Lechem Metukan is the best of all foods". But what is Lechem Metukan (Proper Bread)? 1) The Rambam explains that Lechem Metukan should not be made with solet nikiah (refined flour). Flour must be whole-grain. (In those days everyone used stone grinders (Rechaim) to grind grains into flour. Stone ground flour is the only true whole-grain flour- because the bran and germ are not stripped off the endosperm. Whereas modern day steel mills strip off the bran

Sugar Consumption linked to DEPRESSION

It is universally acknowledged that sugar is one of worst foods a person can consume. Numerous studies show that sugar and refined carbohydrate consumption is directly linked to Heart Disease, Type II Diabetes, obesity & cancer. Sugar causes an imbalance throughout the entire body. It spikes blood sugar levels, which leads to insulin resistance and it feeds harmful pathogens and microbes such as Candida. However, its negative effects don't end there. Sugar has a direct effect on brain health. Sugar depletes the body of the B vitamins- which are essential to sustain a good mood. Sugar has a dramatic effect on the mental state for a few reasons. As mentioned earlier, it spikes blood

The Amazing Benefits of Ancient Grains vs. Modern Hybridized Wheat

Hybridization is the cross breeding of two different species of plants. For many years, scientists manipulated and rearranged the genetic makeup of plants and seeds, trying to create a more tolerant, resistant form of grain. By the beginning of the twentieth century, their efforts were rewarded, and the modern hybrid crop industry (aka the biotech grain) was born. Hybridized wheat was developed to create a bigger faster growing crop yield, and to increase the percentage of gluten. Wheat has also been hybridized to make the gluten more glutinous, to make bigger, fluffier, spongier, yet non digestible bread. The gluten of modern wheat is so sticky and gluey, that our digestive systems have a

Joseph's Organic Bread Testimonial #1 from Celiac Customer

Where do I begin except with, WOW! My husband and I were walking through the farmers market and happened upon your son setting up your booth. I have what has been diagnosed as Celiac disease and over the last 8 years since finding this out have had unbelievable bouts of headaches, stomachs aches and intestinal pains from eating even the smallest amounts of gluten. I have become so intolerant to gluten that even a small contamination from gluten has catastrophic effects on me. Your son was so passionate and informative about your ancient process of stone grinding (I also recently watched a documentary with very similar discussions) that I had to take the risk of an afternoon of suffering fo

The Dangers of Modern Bread

Bread is a staple food that has been consumed for thousands of years. Now, 40% of the U.S. population has gluten allergies and 1 in 100 people have celiac disease. What is causing this epidemic? Mainstream media and most doctors blame gluten; as a result, many people are opting for gluten free foods. However, the "Gluten Theory" defies logic. People have been eating bread for centuries. It's Not The Gluten That's The Real Culprit It's The Way The Flour is Prepared In the mid 1800s, a big change took place that completely changed the food industry: the arrival of industrial steel mills. Steel mills replaced traditional stone grinders. In fact, in certain countries, stone grinders were banned
