SO HAPPY YOU CLICKED HERE!
I just wanted to thank all of you so very much for the love and support you have shown me! Tens years today!
I opened this business after I resigned as a Registered Dietician, back in 2007. I wish you could have seen my mother’s face when I told her I was resigning from a very lucrative , prestigious medical position, to go back to school and become a naturopathic doctor with a concentration in colonics! I had studied dietetics in medical college for 9 years, practiced nutrition for 11 with the state of NC, got to the top of my game as a NC state Nutritionist Director, and resigned to provide enemas.
My mother was HORRIFIED!
Let’s face it, if your bright young kid, says mommy I want to be a colonic therapist, what do you say?
I hope you say “GO GIRL”! trust me it won’t be your son.
This is the single most helpful purposeful tool you will ever find!
Besides, Enemas have been around for 7,000 years!
Hemp, the non-psychoactive variety of cannabis sativa, is considered by many nutrition professionals to produce the most nutritious seed in the world. With its almost zero THC level, it most assuredly will help you get healthy and stay healthy. Hemp seeds are the safest, most digestible, balanced and complete source of protein, amino acids and essential fatty acids found in the plant kingdom.
Hemp seeds are 1/3 protein, packing more of a punch than so-called energy bars. Providing all 20 known amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids which our bodies cannot produce, hemp seeds are ideal to help your body construct the building blocks of life.
Significantly, hemp seed protein is 65 percent globular edestin, which plays a significant role in the body’s ability to resist disease and recover from illness. Globular edestin is essential for the development of disease fighting antibodies and if you do not have enough of it, you will not produce enough antibodies to prevent the onset of disease and infections.
“Providing all 20 known amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids which our bodies cannot produce, hemp seeds are ideal to help your body construct the building blocks of life.”
Essential fatty acids, such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, are absolutely necessary for our bodies to produce the energy needed to keep us alive and functioning, but since our bodies cannot produce them, they must be taken in externally. It’s not just good enough that our bodies take in these essential fatty acids, they must be taken in the proper ratio. Hemp seeds not only contain bountiful quantities of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, but just as importantly it is the only seed where the ideal 3:1 balance of Omega 6 over Omega 3 is found.
Hemp seeds also have soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which contribute to good health by maintaining healthy bowel movements, preventing constipation, lowering bad cholesterol levels, controlling blood sugar and helping to maintain proper and proportional weight. That’s right—the fiber in hemp seeds can be part of a healthy diet that can help you lose weight and keep it off.
The best part of hemp seeds is that they can be utilized in a variety of recipes from simple to gourmet. Like psychoactive cannabis comes in different forms—dried flower, tincture, wax—nutritious hemp seeds comes in different forms as well—whole seed, powder and oil. Hemp seeds are ideal for a bevy of culinary delights. Toast them, sprinkle on a salad, bake into a waffle, mix into a cup of yogurt or blend with almost anything you want for a healthy and tasty meal. Hemp powders are also adaptable and can be used in variety of recipes, but are exceedingly wonderful for healthy easy-to-make beverages, sauces and dips.
Hemp seed oil is a bit problematic as it is not suitable for high temperature cooking because its burn point—the temperature at which the fats start to break down—is relatively low. You may not be able to fry with hemp seed oil but with its nutty flavor, hemp seed oil makes for healthy and tasty salad dressings and is ideal for hummus, dips, shakes and anything that is not cooked.
Mixing the psycho-active properties of cannabis with the nutritional benefits of hemp seeds provides pleasure plus health. How about hemp seed pancakes smothered in canna-butter or cannabis-infused maple syrup? Got the cannabis munchies? Instead of potato chips, opt to satisfy those hunger pangs with a host of delicious and good-for-you, pre-packaged hemp seed snacks. No reason not to be healthy while you’re kicking back and enjoying life.
What bothers me – what ALWAYS bothers me – is when companies (or governmental regulatory bodies, even) tout something as natural, when its sole ability to exist in the way we consume it as a supplement is based on wholly unnatural, synthetic chemical processes.
DON’T FALL FOR XYLITOL AS I DID FOR TWO YEARS!!
What’s wrong with Xylitol
Most xylitol is made from GMO corn and is a highly processed food like substance, it is NOT “natural” in the sense you and I would use the word. (It can be made from birch tree bark, if so, the package will state it… Even so 1. birch xylitol is still extremely processed and 2. most “products” like finished foods and personal care items containing xylitol use corn)
Most commercial Xylitol is processed using heavy metals, chemicals, is bleached and is hydrogenated to extract the sugar alcohols from the fiber of the plant. Xylitol is fairly new on the food scene so we have little evidence of long term use in a large population, If we think of other hydrogenated foods we will quickly realize they have a long history of turning out to be very bad for our health, think margarine, fast food or donuts… all cause chronic inflammation and disease. Reasoning would lead one to err on the side of caution and avoid any hydrogenated processed food.
Since it is a processed extracted sugar alcohol it is not digested like a natural sugar and throws the gut’s ecosystem out of balance.
There is also a small concern about it’s toxicity in rats and a possible link to increasing epileptic seizures.
it is toxic to dogs and can kill your pets if they eat your food, gum or toothpaste
The claims about Xylitol preventing cavities is based on the theory that bacteria on the tooth surface eats sugar creating acid that decays the enamel which causes cavities, anyone who looks into modern holistic dentistry will soon find that the current thinking is so much more complicated than this. Cavities are a symptom of malnutrition leading to a deterioration of the tooth. essentially cavities are a bone disease caused by a lack of the proper diet and sunshine (vitamin D), therefore xylitol’s anti-bacteria qualities are not only systemically toxic but only a band-aid over a much deeper problem.

Thank you sweetie for clicking into my site!
I absolutely support, wholeheartedly support marijuana. It’s medicine, nothing works like it, ……..
so it’s very cruel and unusual to deny a palliative medicine from seriously ill people.
I had no idea how beneficial Marijuana could be , but for 58 years , I saw how it did a lot less harm to society than alcohol!
Thank you so much for clicking and surfing into this blog site!
I worked for a summer as an intern at a Manhattan corporation — most people were making a good amount $175k+ for directors and VP’s probably are well in the quarter million dollar range. During this time, I watched and observed the dietary behaviors of those who were “wealthy” and fit versus those who were in the outer edges where people did not have as much money.
What were my anecdotal findings?
Those who look like they could be on a magazine:
- They do not eat much. They snack on very healthy foods.
- For lunch, this is a fruit cup and maybe a dab of yogurt. Or lunch is actually a skinny latte.
- A $9 fresh vegetable juice is lunch for some; there is nothing special about this that one cannot simply make at home, spending less than $2 on vegetables.
- For dinner, they are eating lean meats with very nutritionally-rich starches (brown rice, quinoa, etc). The portions are simply tiny.
- I concluded that the key is in the portions and not exactly what the diet is. Two bites of something decadent will not do much damage.
Those who are slender and medium-fit:
- They eat a bit more bulk, but the portion sizes are still small compared to “mid-west portions”.
- A salad with lean protein is as much as someone would have for lunch.
- Sometimes a half-salad, a soup, and a sliver of bread and some fruit!
- They all seemed to exercise and treat their bodies like a work project, with a lot of effort, research, and precision.
Sometimes I would go to really nice restaurants. I found that the portion sizes are also tremendously small. I saw no evidence that there was a rich people “magical formula” or “magical foods”. Doctors (some making upwards of millions) are also eating this way.
If you want to be like the demographic who partake in diet fads or worse, there are plenty of bulimic Californians (I was one; sustained massive damage to the body — not worth it!)
To be certain, New Yorkers also take the subway a lot and this involves from walking from the station to the destination. Extra hidden exercise!

Makes the digestive system more effective
As the colon is cleansed, it pushes undigested waste through your system, clearing the way for good nutrient absorption. If waste remains in the body for too long, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and illness. A clean colon from a colon detox allows undigested waste to pass easily through your system.
Maintains regularity and prevents constipation
Constipation — especially when it’s chronic — causes a sluggish digestive response, which in turn leaves waste in the system longer. This increases the likelihood that toxins will be released into the bloodstream. It is also a cause of other illnesses and irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Releasing the toxins from your body is rejuvenating because it refocuses the energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. People who have undergone colon detoxification say they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep and a boost in energy.
Increases the body’s absorption of vitamins and nutrients
A colon that has been cleansed allows only water, vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream, rather than releasing toxins and bacteria through the colon walls. When the colon is detoxified, it clears the way for essential nutrients to filter into your body unobstructed.
Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause you to become distracted and lose your concentration. The buildup of mucous and toxins in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. This has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships and your overall health.
Kick-starts weight loss
Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter.
Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. The average human colon weighs about four pounds empty and can hold up to eight meals’ worth of food before digestion finally occurs. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.
Decreases risk of colon cancer
All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe in and absorb through your skin end up being processed by your gastrointestinal system and liver. If they are not forced from your colon and liver as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body’s systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.
Colon cleansing, as well as increased fiber intake and healthy food choices, improves regularity and helps keep your weight under control. Fat is estrogen-based, and if too much is present, becoming pregnant becomes more difficult. A colon that is weighed down by years of buildup can also press on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain.
Colon cleansing rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. Many naturopaths recommend that both partners undergo colon cleansing before attempting pregnancy.
Maintains pH balance in the bloodstream
Foods that cause colon blockages are acid-forming — particularly high-protein diets without enough fiber. This leads to general malaise in the body. The tissue of the colon eventually becomes diseased and inflamed, reducing the colon’s ability to do its job, which is to allow only water, minerals and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue, the body’s pH will be thrown out of balance.
Improves whole-body well-being
Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon buildup can lead to feelings of lightness, strength and overall good health.

Sleep disorders are a group of conditions that disrupt proper sleeping habits and thereby adversely affect health. Studies have shown cannabis improves the quality and duration of sleep and helps manage various sleep disorders.
Overview of Sleep Disorders
Sleep disorders are disruptions in normal sleeping patterns. Among the most common types of sleep disorders is insomnia, which is the difficulty of falling or staying asleep. Other common types include sleep apnea, which is characterized by breathing interruptions while sleeping, restless legs syndrome, which is the tingling or prickly sensation in the legs, and narcolepsy, which are sudden and irresistible bouts of sleep during the day. Parasomnias, which include nightmares, sleepwalking, sleep talking, wetting the bed, grinding the teeth, night terrors and head banging, can also disrupt proper sleep.
Sleep disorders can adversely affect one’s health and safety. Sleep deprivation decreases physical performance and alertness and impairs memory and cognitive abilities. This can increase the risk of occupational and automobile injuries and prevent participation in activities that require sustained attention. In addition, sleep deprivation and night disruptions can lead to relationship problems.
The method for treating sleeping disorders depends on the type. For some sleeping disorders, simply incorporating regular sleep habits can be effective. Making lifestyle changes, like adjusting one’s exposure to daylight, strategically scheduling naps, and sticking to a set sleeping schedule and routine, often help. For disorders that are caused by a disruption in circadian rhythm, a common treatment method is bright light therapy, which helps to synchronize the body’s clock by exposing the eyes to safe levels of intense light for brief durations throughout the day. Medications and melatonin treatments can help encourage quality sleep and assist in maintaining a proper sleep-wake cycle.
Findings: Effects of Cannabis on Sleep Disorders
Studies have shown that cannabis can improve the quality and duration of sleep and help treat various sleeping disorders. A major cannabinoid found in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), effectively reduces the amount of time it takes those with insomnia to fall asleep (Cousens & DiMascio, 1973). One study found that regular consumers of oral THC fell asleep faster and without difficulty compared to non-consumers (Gorelick, et al., 2013). Another study found that cannabis, when administered acutely, eased the falling asleep process and increased the duration of stage 4 sleep (Schierenbeck, Riemann, Berger & Hornyak, 2008).
THC has also been shown to decrease the number of awakenings throughout the night (Cousens & DiMascio, 1973). An animal trial found that a synthetic cannabinoid similar to THC was affective at attenuating seratonin-induced apnea by relaxing a muscle in the chin and tongue that has been implicated in the cause of the disorder (Calik, Radulovacki & Carley, 2014). Studies have also found that cannabinoids are effective for treating nightmares in military personnel with PTSD (Jetley, Heber, Fraser & Boisvert, 2015) (Fraser, 2009).
A cannabis-based medication, containing both THC and another major cannabinoid found in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), demonstrated in numerous studies to have positive effects on sleep (Russo, Guy & Robson, 2007). One study found that acute CBD treatments were effective in increasing total sleep time (Chagras, et al., 2013).
Most studies, however, have found that CBD possesses alerting properties (Murillo-Rodriguez, et al., 2014) (Nicholson, Turner, Stone & Robson, 2004) (Murillo-Rodriguez, et al., 2011). One study found that CBD, when consumed while the lights were on, effectively increased wakefulness (Murillo-Rodriguez, et al., 2006). As a result, cannabis high in CBD could potentially help in the management of sleep deprivation and excessive daytime sleepiness.
Medical cannabis patients commonly use cannabis specifically for treating sleep disorders. One study found that nearly half of the adults purchasing medical cannabis at a cannabis dispensary were doing so to help manage insomnia. Most of those individuals reportedly preferred strains of cannabis with significantly higher concentrations of CBD (Belendiuk, Babson, Vandrey & Bonn-Miller, 2015).
States That Have Approved Medical Marijuana for Sleep Disorders
Currently, no states have approved medical marijuana for the treatment of early morning disorder. However, in Washington DC, any condition can be approved for medical marijuana as long as a DC-licensed physician recommends the treatment. In addition, a number of other states will consider allowing medical marijuana to be used for the treatment of early morning disorder with the recommendation from a physician. These states include: California (any debilitating illness where the medical use of marijuana has been recommended by a physician), Connecticut (other medical conditions may be approved by the Department of Consumer Protection), Massachusetts (other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient’s physician), Nevada (other conditions subject to approval), Oregon (other conditions subject to approval), Rhode Island (other conditions subject to approval), and Washington (any “terminal or debilitating condition”).
