Stem cell ads are popping up everywhere. If you know anyone that has had reason to see a doctor specializing in orthopedic or regenerative medicine then you may have heard about something called PRP. There is a lot of misinformation out there, and we had to get to the bottom of it. We’ve learned a lot and can’t wait to share it with you! Read on!
Electricity has been used in medicine since the days of the Romans. Electric torpedo fish were used for pain relief. Later, the electrostatic violet ray invented by Nikola Tesla, took the place of the fish. Nikola Tesla was the great genius who observed that high frequency electricity had significant benefits for health.
This smoothie has a couple of unique ingredients, but they are readily available at your natural foods market. Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is a berry found in the Amazon Rainforest. Rich in antioxidants, fiber, and omegas. Baobab (pronounced bay-o-bob) is a tree native to Africa and it produces a “super fruit” especially high in vitamin C and electrolytes.
Why do people go on a cleanse or a detox? When is it legit, when is it hype? Do most do it because it sounds sexier, cooler, trendier, and healthier than going on a “diet”? People who follow a program of strict or clean eating, or sometimes non-eating, and eventually return to their normal, unhealthier patterns, make a cleanse look more like a good old fashion weight loss diet.
My husband has perfected this jalapeño hummus recipe at our house. It is so easy to make, and even though the garbanzo beans are from a can, this hummus tastes so fresh. We use it all week long. On crackers, veggies, sandwiches and wraps, it adds just the right kick to any meal or snack.
Raw, organic nuts (make sure they are raw and organic!) are a great source of healthy, unsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and plant sterols.

Michelle’s daughter attends a nut-free elementary school. This seed butter recipe was tweaked and embellished from one that she found online while researching nut butter alternatives. It is very easy to make and tastes just as good, if not better, than nut butters.
Dr. Mercola keeps posting articles on this subject, and it has me tickled pink because although this is what I have done intuitively for over 20 years, it goes against what almost all health professionals claim, which is: eat breakfast, it should be your biggest meal of the day.

Get ready, this is a longer post than we usually do, but most people have not heard of PEMF. We hadn’t either until recently. We are amazed at what we have learned, and excited to share this therapy. PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field. A PEMF device sends a magnetic pulse that emits a three dimensional magnetic field into the body. This helps to re-energize the cells by inducing electrical changes within them, which restores the cells to a more normal and healthier state.
