Still using Splenda as your sweetener of choice? It is the most versatile and widely used artificial sweetener. However, as is often the case, popularity of a product does not indicate that it is safe.

Avocados – the world’s most perfect food or simply the funkiest looking fruit ever? In this edition of Health Food Friday, we will discover the truth about this green wonder.
Shopping for healthy foods can be confusing. Many foods products claim to be “healthy”, “all-natural”, “organic” or “low fat”. But how do you know if these words are real benefits or just clever marketing schemes? If your food comes in a box or a package, it is likely not as healthy as it claims. If you base the majority of your diet around whole foods, you will be making a much wiser investment in your health.
This Healthy Food Friday series will help you learn to identify the difference. You will also learn more about the amazing benefits of whole foods along with delicious ways to enjoy them.
The cure for any disease seems to be quite mythical. We assume that medical research is sincerely searching for a cure for many diseases such as cancer. Yet, to this day, there has never been a drug that has cured anything. In fact, the use of the word cure has drastically declined over the last hundred years. Not only will you never find a cure for disease, you do not even want a cure for disease!
Ask yourself which you prefer: a cure or a healing? Is it better to fight and conquer disease or to support the innate healing of your body? In the vast majority of cases, disease is not a foreign invader. Rather, it is an abnormal response of your own body. Fighting disease is fighting your own body. It is counterproductive to real health.
You do not want a cure. You need healing. Healing is not a mystical concept. It is the natural state of the human body. Your body is designed to heal itself.
You have been lied to! You have been told that your high blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and stroke recovery require prescription drugs for the rest of your life. New research shows that these drugs have likely been unnecessarily prescribed. This has placed millions of people at risk for deadly side effects due to these drugs.
This research shows that exercise is just as effective at treating heart disease and diabetes as medication. However, exercise has zero deadly side effects, making it even more effective than drugs. Further, the study showed that exercise is even more effective than drug therapy for stroke recovery. Imagine what would happen when you add rock solid nutrition to this as well!
You know that you need to exercise but you think you don’t have the time. You think that exercise is too hard or requires you to purchase a gym membership and workout in front of other people. What if you could get all the cardiovascular exercise you need in just 12 minutes a day without leaving the comfort of your own home? What if this quick exercise helped you boost your metabolism, reduce inflammation and actually reverse diabetes and heart disease? Would you be more motivated?
