CHECK OUT THE 2014 DIRTY DOZEN!

Victory Energy Wellness

By Mind Body Green

Don’t want to eat fruits coated with toxins? Neither do we! And neither does the Environmental Working Group, which thankfully tracks what’s actually in and on our food.

Recently, they released their annual Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides, which breaks down which fruits and veggies have the most pesticides and which have the fewest. Their goal is to bring some transparency to our food supply and help you decide when it’s worth shilling out extra for organic produce. Apples topped the toxic list for the fourth year in a row, which may not come as a surprise in the wake of news that they’re often covered with a chemical that’s banned in Europe.

If it fits in your budget, the EWG recommends buying organic whenever possible. And if it’s just not affordable right now, their guide can help you make more informed, healthy choices. The bottom line, says the EWG, is that it’s always good to eat more fruits and vegetables, even if you’re exposed to pesticides. Now you can be a little smarter about it. 

 

Some highlights from the report:

  • A single grape sample contained 15 pesticides.
  • The average potato had more pesticides by weight than any other food.
  • Single samples of celery, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas and strawberries showed 13 different pesticides apiece.

Homemade Chewable Vitamins

Found this post on Wellness Mama; thought you all might find it useful…yours in health and wellness!!

How to make healthy gummy vitamins at home Homemade Chewable Vitamins

I combined one of their favorite natural snacks (jello/homemade gummy bears) with vitamins to make a healthy, gut-boosting, and really kid-friendly multivitamin.

I can think of endless uses for these, but these are the one’s I’ve tried so far:

  • Adding Vitamin C Powder and using lemon juice to make chewable sour gummies
  • Adding probiotics with a fresh juice base  to make GAPS friendly chewy vitamins (add probiotics after heating!)
  • Using Elderberry Syrup as a base to make flu-busting chewy vitamins
  • Adding Natural Calm for chewable magnesium vitamins

One caution: If your kids aren’t regularly drinking bone broth (they should be) then start slow and only give them a few of these at a time as their gut adjusts or they might have a little loose stool while they adjust since gelatin has a soothing effect on the digestive system. The advantage to these is that they use gelatin powder as a base so they sooth the gut and give some of the same benefits as bone broth.

Electromagnetic Fields

Imagine for a moment…

you are like a radio, transmitting and receiving energy. That is how our bodies work.  Dr. Jean-Claude Mainguy postulates that the systems of all life are governed by electromagnetic fields, which can either lie within a cell or outside it. We are often exposed to high and low electromagnet fields. Some high electromagnetic fields that may cause a positive effect are: healthy fresh foods, deep breathing, positive touch, uplifting music or art, or just being out in nature.Some low electromagnetic fields that may cause a negative effect are: cell phones, electricity pylons television and computer screens. What you expose your body to, put into it and on it can affect your health.

The daytime frequency of a healthy human body…

vibrates in the range of 62 to 68 MHz. Interruption of  the healthy flow of energy exchange between your cells and tissue in your body can cause discomfort and dis-ease. Studies conducted in 1992 by Tainio Technology, as an independent division of Eastern State University in Cheny, Washington, reinforce the findings of earlier researchers. Tainio and colleagues determined that when a person’s frequency drops below the optimum healthy range, the immune system is compromised. Findings supported by this research indicate that:

  • Human cells can start to change (mutate) when their frequency drops below 62MHz.
  • 58 MHz is the frequency of your body when you have a cold or the flu.
  • When candida is present within your body, you vibrate at a frequency of 55MHz.
  • 52 MHz is the frequency of a body with Epstein-Barr virus present.
  • 42 MHz is the frequency of a body wherein cancer can appear.
  • When the death process begins – the frequency has been measured at […]

5 HERBS TO CALM ANXIETY

 

By Colleen M. Story (Renegade Health)

Are you ‘swimming’ in stress, lately? Bills and worries piling up? Challenges sprouting up in your job, family, and home? You may be suffering from anxiety. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. and affect 40 million adults. Generalized anxiety disorder, on its own, affects 6.8 million adults, with women twice as likely to be affected as men.

Whether you’re suffering from a lifelong illness or simply going through a stressful period in your life, natural herbs can help. Here are seven that are particularly good for calming you down – without putting you to sleep. (You’ll notice we have left out kava and valerian for this reason).

1. Passionflower

The University of Maryland Medical Center states that passionflower has shown in a few studies to work as well as some  medications that are usually prescribed for treating anxiety.

A second study also showed that passionflower helped ease symptoms like anxiety, irritability, agitation, and depression.

Try one cup of passionflower tea

2. Lavender

A 2010 multi-center, double blind randomized study of lavender oil found it effective against generalized and persistent anxiety.

Researchers stated, it could be an effective to treat generalized anxiety.

Use the oil as an aromatherapy solution.

3. Lemon balm

Though usually found in combination with other herbs, lemon balm also has anti-anxiety powers on its own.

Research published in 2004, for instance, gave participants a single dose of lemon balm extract (300 mg or 600 mg) or a placebo, then measured their mood after one hour. The higher dose resulted in reduced stress and improved calmness and alertness. Even the lower dose helped participants do math problems more quickly.

Use in aromatherapy or […]

TOP 8 FOODS & HERBS FOR PREVENTING CANCER


By Derek Henry (Natural News)

With 44% of men and 39% of women now being diagnosed with cancer, it has become more important than ever to understand the foods that will not only nourish your body, but also detoxify it of any cancer causing agents.

Here are some of the most potent cancer destroying foods and herbs.

1. Sea Vegetables

Kelpkombu, and nori are three of the most common sea vegetables with remarkable effects on cancer. They are one of the richest and most bio-available sources of iodine, a substance lacking in the average diet that is implicated in many patients with breast and ovarian cancer.They are also rich in calcium and potassium, as well as all minerals, which assist in promoting a very alkaline environment, which makes it very difficult for existing cancer to survive.

2. Algae

Chlorella and spirulina are two of the most potent algae and are proven cancer fighters.

Due to their incredible detoxification action (including binding to and eliminating heavy metals) and immune-boosting properties (by promoting the production of healthy gut flora and fighting candida overgrowth), they are a must have when healing cancer.

3. Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms such as reishiand chaga have had a number of bioactive molecules, including anti-tumor agents, identified in their structure. These bioactive compounds include polysaccharides, alkaloids, tocopherols, phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, folates, ascorbic acid enzymes, and organic acids.Studies show that long-term consumption of reishi prevents tumor proliferation and growth by increasing the level of antioxidants in an individual’s blood plasma while boosting the immunity of those suffering from advanced-stage cancer.

4. Aloe Vera

Research shows strong immunomodulatory and anti-tumor properties on polysaccharides in aloe vera, which means […]

SPRING SAVINGS AT VICTORY ENERGY WELLNESS!!

Cranial Sacral at Victory Energy Wellness

15 % off Integrated Cranial Sacral Unwinding
April-May

Opal is celebrating her one year anniversary at Victory Energy Wellness and is passing big savings on to you!!

Integrated Cranial Sacral Unwinding is a specific technique that aligns the cranial bones, brain and nervous system from the inside out and from the top down. The re-alignment takes tension off the nervous system, releases cranial, fascial and muscle tissue fixations, and returns proper cerebrospinal fluid flow throughout the spine and entire body.

During Integrated Cranial Sacral Unwinding, trained therapists use a light touch equivalent to a nickel’s weight, and feel the rhythmic motion of the cerebrospinal fluid within the craniosacral system.

How does treating the brain affect the rest of my body?

Because Integrated Cranial Sacral Unwinding allows the left and right brain hemispheres to re-balance and reintegrate in a profound way, the functioning of the central nervous system automatically improves.

The brain is the master regulator of every organ and hormone in the body. It communicates to the organs through the nerves. In fact, 80 percent of the nerves in your body originate in the the brain. These nerves extend down the spine and to all your organs. The job of your nervous system is to carry critical signals to your organs and back. If this function is compromised, so is your health. With signal transfer and optimal functioning back on track, the body is then able to restore health and balance in all its aspects — structural/physical, mental and emotional. One hour session Regular $75 Now only$64!!
