Amazing Health Benefits from an Underutilized Fiber Source

There are many sources of fiber that I have posted over the years such as Chia Seeds and Flax Seeds just to name a few; however, there is one in particular that seems to be resurfacing and gaining popularity. This potent source of fiber and also dense in nutrients is none other than Wheat Germ. It’s extremely economical, readily available and so easy to use and incorporate in our daily diets, no matter what your lifestyle. Take a look at this short video to see the amazing health benefits of Wheat Germ.

  • Supports Pregnancy
  • Boosts Muscle Health
  • Increases Athletic Performance
  • Boosts Immune System
  • Prevents Cancer
  • Prevents Diabetes
  • Improves Heart Health
  • Anti-Aging Properties
  • Improves Cellular Metabolism

 Research states that for every 1,000 calories of food we eat, we need 14 grams of fiber, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Each tablespoon of wheat germ contains about 2 grams of fiber. You should start slow at a tablespoon per day. I recently started including it in my smoothie, salads, pasta and other savory meals. I barely taste it if at all. This fiber combined with your daily intake of fruits and veggies will surely be a health booster. It is a great detox for the intestinal system.

I hope you’ll give this natural and easy to use little fiber a try!!!

Shocking Cancer Cure Cover Up?

There are staggering statistics regarding cancer and many of us have either received the diagnosis or have fought beside someone who is dear to us to beat it.  For many decades there has been research to find a cure or a majic bullet to prevent it from occurring altogether.

A few days ago, I was cruising the net and came across something I had never considered………that cancer may be due to some sort of vitamin deficiency????  Now that caught my interest.  What engaged me even more is that there are some that claim that the health care industry higher ups have known about this for a very long time and have tried to hide the truth in order to continue to pad the pockets of those that have wealth.

Just like we can take various vitamins to prevent diseases such scurvy, osteoporosis, dementia and more, what if there was a vitamin to prevent cancer, and as a result, it would at the least minimize the rounds of chemotherapy and radiation?  Maybe even prevent the cancer from forming or YES, even be a cure.

The vitamin I speak of is vitamin B17, better known as Amygdalin. It’s mainly found in the seeds of such fruits such as:  apricot (which tops the list of rich vitamin B 17 foods), prunes, pears, peaches, apples, cherries, and nectarines. Other B17 rich foods, although in moderate amounts include:  Flax seeds, squash seeds, millet seeds and buckwheat seeds.  Certain nuts, berries, sprouts, leaves and beans have been reported to be beneficial for this purpose as well.

It would be well worth your time to watch below as Dr. Tony Jimenez describes Amygdalin and his wealth of experience and the success stories he’s seen in treating cancer.

Many have turned to Amygdalin for adjunctive therapy with the typical chemo and radiation protocols currently in place in Westernized Medicine. If you are wanting a natural preventative course, this may very well be an option for you.

Please share this post with everyone that you know and spread the word about cancer prevention and possible alternative therapy or adjunctive therapy.  More importantly, do the research yourself, after all, it may save a life one day………maybe even your own.

Boost Your Immunity with Ginger and Lemon Tea


As we continue to fight off colds and other viruses in the thick of the Winter, I have found one thing that seems to speed up me and my family’s recovery time.  For a long time, we have used ginger and lemon as a tea, but I had always been thinking how I could make it even more potent.

It suddenly occurred to me that so many recipes that I have used in the past that call for lemons as the ingredient specifically require the use of the lemon rind.  Just in the small amount of the rind, we know that we get a powerful amount of flavor.  Well it’s not just the benefit of the added flavor from this small amount of the rind ingredient, we also gain:

  • 5-10 times more vitamins and minerals in the rind than in the juice of the lemon
  • Cancer fighting protection from a phytonutrient called salvestrol Q40 as well as limonene.
  • Flavenoids also found in the rind help to slow down the division of cancer cells
  • Due to the amount of calcium and vitamin C, lemon rinds are excellent for promoting bone health and all sorts of joint conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory polyarthritis.  It even helps with osteoporosis
  • Decrease in cholesterol (LDL in particular).  This is the cholesterol that is not healthy for us.  This in turn will lead to better circulation and heart health.

So, I thought to myself, why not use the entire lemon in a tea with my usual ginger, but instead of using in the form of chunks, blend it  ALL up.  Here is what you will need:


  • About enough ginger root to fit into the palm of your hand or about the size of a medium sized lemon. Peel it and rinse it with water.
  • About 1/4 cup of brown sugar (and 1/2 cup of white sugar , or use all brown sugar if you please)
  • 4 tea bags of whatever type of tea you would like (optional)
  • About a tablespoon of honey
  • 1&1/2 liters of boiled water (filtered or good quality bottled water, not tap)
  • A medium or large lemon, washed with soap and water
  1. Once you gathered your ingredients, chop the washed lemon and the peeled ginger root into chunks as seen above.
  2. Place the chunks of ginger, chunks of lemon, honey, sugars and about 1/3 of the boiled water into your blender.  Blend the ingredients for about a minute.
  3. Meanwhile, put the tea bags (optional) and the rest of your boiled water into a medium sized pot and pour the blended contents into this pot and stir a few times (above uppermost right picture).
  4. Let the ingredients steep by covering the pot with a top for about 5-10 minutes.
  5. After steeping, strain all at one time or one serving at a time as seen above.
  6. Save the strained ingredients in a tupperware and use it once more if you desire but within 1-2 days.  Store in the fridge.
  7. Enjoy your Immune System Boost and hopefully a quicker recovery!images

I’m #Nuts About You


So which nut is more beneficial to our health?  Let’s get to the point!

The Brazilian Nut:

In just one-fourth of a cup there are 218 calories, 4 grams of carbs, 5 grams of protein, and 22 grams of fat (mostly unsaturated and great for the heart).  Selenium is a huge health benefit, which we will talk about in a bit.  You also get the added benefit of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium.  There are trace amounts of thiamin, vitamin B6, riboflavin and niacin.

The Almond:
In one-fourth of a cup of almonds there are 162 calories, 14 grams of unsaturated fat (great for our hearts) and 6 grams of protein, but don’t get carried away.  This is only about 23 almonds and we must remember this about all nuts….the portion is important.  Almonds contain fiber in addition to protein and magnesium.  They also contain vitamin E.  This small nut helps us to lower blood sugar levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.  Due to the amount of fiber and protein, they can also decrease appetite and help with weight loss.
So who are the stars of the contents:
Selenium– This is a trace element found in the soil and in certain foods as well as water.  It is good for preventing coronary heart disease, fighting inflammation, reducing free radicals, helping with antioxidant activity and increasing blood flow.  It also helps the thyroid convert T4 (thyroid hormone) into the active T3 form.  Healthy thyroid function equals a healthier metabolism.  It also plays a role in cancer prevention and improves sexual performance.  In men it boosts testosterone levels and helps with sperm production and motility.
Iron– Although pistachio nuts lead in the amount of iron as far as nuts go (four times more as Brazilian nuts or almonds), these above nuts are still a great source of iron.  Iron is one of the components of hemoglobin, the material in red blood cells that helps our blood to carry oxygen throughout our bodies.  Vitamin C can boost the amount of absorption of iron.
Nuts are loaded with vitamin E, healthy fats, protein and magnesium and those that eat nuts as a regular part of their diet have been shown to lower their risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes type 2.
So, based on which one of the above packs in more of the above important components, THE WINNER IS the Brazilian Nut over the Almond.  The fact that the Brazilian Nut comes in at number one for Selenium in food charts and the almond only yields about 2% of the daily amount that we use, for me, there is no contest!
What is a good serving size for most nuts:  one handful, 1/4 cup or  1 ounce.  So add these little delightful snacks as a regular part of your diet, especially to curb your appetite in between meals.  I like them with yogurt and a bit of granola.  If you currently enjoy them as a part of your regular diet, share your way of eating them below:
