Electromagnetic Radiation  -  Why it Matters: You might be surprised to know that everything your body did today was made possible by electricity.  The organic computer, known as your brain, that runs the whole show, emits waves that are electrical.  All the sensory information (like hunger and pain) it sends and receives is electrical.  This includes the neurons that discharge when you move a muscle, the signals that tell your body to heal a wound, and even the beat of your heart.   The electromagnetism of the body is so crucial to our functioning that even conventional medicine...

The Need for Detoxification It’s no secret that our world has become polluted.  There are noble efforts by various groups to make it better, but simply put – toxic chemicals are everywhere.  Even if there was suddenly a worldwide ban on all toxic chemicals, residue would remain for decades, perhaps even centuries.  Since we cannot completely remove toxins from our environment, nor can we completely avoid them in our everyday life, we must learn to deal with them the best we can.  We can do this by making sensible lifestyle choices and using periodic detoxification methods....

Safe Sunscreen ?

Good, old-fashioned sunshine is the best way to get our vitamin D, but if you plan to be in the mid-day sun for extended periods of time, it’s a good idea to protect your skin. Aside from using hats, sunglasses, and protective clothing, it’s sometimes necessary, especially in the warmer months, to use sunscreen.  That being said, please be careful with your sunscreen choices. The old saying, “You are what you eat” also comes into play here, as the skin has the potential to “eat” (absorb) whatever is applied to it. It might sound strange at first, but...
