New gluten proteins (gliadins) have been discovered in wheat grown today. These new proteins did not exist in strains grown before the production of genetically engineered crops. Even century old strains of wheat gluten that have been tested and found to be associated with celiac disease are found in much lower quantities than the new strains grown today. These new gluten proteins are dangerous and foreign to the body. It is no wonder that celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and other autoimmune diseases are on the rise.

Anyone who is relatively health conscious has probably purchased various natural deodorants usually without much success.
Anyone who is relatively health conscious has probably purchased various natural deodorants usually without much success. I have heard it oh so many times, natural deodorants just don’t work! Have you ever thought that it could be the foods you are consuming that are causing your unattractive body odor? Yes, it is true!

Upon rising drink the juice of one or two fresh lemons in a glass of warm water. This simple yet powerful ritual of a morning lemon water cleanse has great health benefits. Apart from alkalizing the body, and giving yourself a boost of hydration, you are also increasing your vitamin C concentration. This aids your body in the absorption of nutrients from your food intake that follows, such as breakfast. Lemon water helps to begin peristalsis, the wave-like motion of the digestive tract that moves digested food along and continues into the large intestine to move undigested waste out of the body.
If you like, you can even add other beneficial superfoods to your morning lemon water cleanse. To make a morning detox, simply add a ½ tsp. chlorella powder and a pitted date if you prefer it sweet (you will need to blend it). If you want to boost your metabolism, instead of chlorella try adding 1/8 tsp. cayenne powder. To soothe the digestive tract, and calm an acidic environment try adding a chunk of fresh aloe or 1 oz. of aloe vera juice, you may also have to add a pitted date or 1 tsp. of agave as aloe is very bitter.
Begin your morning cleanse today and feel what a difference this ritual can make to your body. Take care of yourself!

I believe in building the immune system from the inside out. We all have total control over what we choose to put into our bodies, we can choose to either prevent disease or to feed it. We must learn to boost our immune system naturally by feeding the body the nutrients it requires through the consumption of whole plant foods. Using whole plant foods to assist your body to obtain as close to perfect health as possible should always be the first line of treatment for the prevention and/or reversal of symptoms of disease.
A vegan diet when followed as a whole food plant based diet is by far the healthiest diet on the planet, and for the planet. Learn to lose weight naturally, increase your nutrient intake through the consumption of whole plant foods, and boost your immunity. Begin to speed up your metabolism as you increase energy levels, and allow me to assist you in this process through my blog, and through my new book as you begin your transition to “Live Simply Plant Based”.
