Happy Anniversary Giveaway!

April 25th marks the one year anniversary of the publication of my first book Nutritional Truths. This past year has proven a great deal of insight into the self-publishing world and writing a blog over this past year has been educational as well.

There will be five copies of the audio version of Nutritional Truths given away, and all you need to do to enter is make sure you like Nutritional Truths on Facebook and share this on your wall before May 8th. Very simple with winners being notified the end next week. Good luck! You may also follow my blog by sharing your email at http://www.nutritionaltruths.com to be entered.

I wrote the book having spent so many years in the dark about nutrition, foods, disease and their actual cures. Nutritional Truths allows me to share all the information that everyone should know in one concise book allowing the readers to investigate further the truths that matter most to them.

Have you ever thought of writing a book and publishing it? When you finally do you will find it either harder or easier than you think. It’s one of those unknowns until it is complete and ready for print at which point is editing and re-editing again and again happens. When this happens, the perfectionist may never complete the project since chasing one’s tail comes easy at this stage and making the book available to the public has to be more important than perfection.

Once Nutritional Truths was published, I was under the illusion that the heavy lifting was over, but it had only just begun. Marketing, promoting and selling one’s book takes more effort than I would have guessed. There are still avenues I have begun to explore in order to promote it further and am always open to your ideas.

Enjoy your weekend, enter this contest and share this with those you love. Good luck and Be Well!

Four, Seven, Eight, read this blog to Sleep Great!

Sleep has been proven as a truly important part of our overall health and longevity. A recent study found that people who sleep less than 7 hours a night had an increased risk of death at 21% for women and 26% for men. If sleep medications are used, those risks jump up to 31% for men and 39% for women. Eight uninterrupted hours should be the goal when sleeping.

In my book Nutritional Truths I speak to avoiding electronic anything, at least, an hour before sleeping to allow the mind to “wind-down” and begin preparing to rest. As we sleep, our bodies focus on repairing and regenerating our bodies cells. When we fail to allow this process to take places a myriad of ills may befall us.

Lucky for me I have almost always been the type who after my head hits the pillow I am asleep within three minutes with few exceptions. I know many have issues falling asleep and after learning a trick that Dr. Weil has shared I will share it with you here, and I have had it confirmed that it does indeed work very well.

The exercise is known as the 4-7-8 technique, and Dr. Weil calls it a “natural tranquilizer for the nervous system.” Outside of sleeping the good doctor recommends this exercise to help you lower stress. Try it for yourself and see how well it relaxes you.

Here is the process:
1. Place the tip of your tongue against the tissue on the roof of your mouth directly behind your upper front teeth and hold it there throughout the process.
2. Fully exhale through only your mouth while making a whoosh sound.
3. Close your mouth and inhale fully through only your nose to a mental count of four.
4. Hold your breath for a mental count of seven.
5. Exhale fully through your mouth creating whoosh sound to a mental count of eight.
6. Completing one full breath, now inhale and repeat the cycle up to three more times.

I look forward to hearing how it works for you! It’s suggested that one does no more than seven cycles in a row. Most often after only a couple of cycles, you will wake up realizing that it worked well for you and smile knowing that access to sleep is now just a few breaths away!

Nutritional Truths blog is coming up on our one-year anniversary and with that is another giveaway! There will be several audio copies of Nutritional Truths given away, and it will be super easy to enter. More information later this month, enjoy your weekend and new sleep technique. Share this with everyone and Be Well!

God Food

Many of us grew up in a home where meals came from a drive through or out of a box, bag, can or container. Therefore, today fresh vegetables often do not reside at the top of our list of things we crave to eat. Fat, salt, and sugar are at the top of that list because that is how we are hardwired. Understand that at the time of our wiring we did not have a drive through on every corner or grocery stores filled to the brim with fake foods.

All processed carbohydrates (buns, coatings, fries) behave like sugar in our brains making fast food, and most processed foods hit on all three cylinders and then there’s the copious MSG added. Examining the Standard American Diet the vegetable we most consume are potatoes, fried potatoes. All supported by the amount of fast and restaurant foods we eat. Although potatoes do offer some nutrition when baked, the sweet potato has more to offer us nutrition wise.

Growing up, my idea of a vegetable outside of potatoes was green beans or spinach fresh out of the can. Iceberg lettuce tomatoes and cucumber would make an appearance on the occasional spaghetti night. It was not until I learned about holistic health did I come to realize how many vegetables support health and help keep disease away.

Organic vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants all to support our wellness. I refer to vegetables as God food or food that loves you back. Foods created by God trump foods made by man every time!

The easiest way to fill yourself with more veggies is either to fill your blender half full with greens and then make a smoothie. Many favor young beet, chard & kale greens or spinach. Add frozen bananas, berries, almond milk or coconut water, maybe ground flax, chia or hemp hearts and you’re all set.

You can also finely dice up zucchini, yellow squash, carrots or use the food processor and add them to any meat or non-meat sauces, loafs, meatballs or patties. Invest $30 in a spiralizer and use zucchini or squash in place of pasta and don’t forget spaghetti squash for another way to sneak more veggies onto the dinner table.

Organic vegetables feed our bodies and mind better than anything you can get from a drive-through, box, bag, can or container. If the vegetables are raw, then all the enzymes are in play. If you’re only into sharing your love with those that love you back, then become more familiar with a true love, vegetables.

May your weekend be a great one, share as you like and Be Well!

A rainbow of nutrition awaits in vegetables

An Apple a Day!

One of Americas favorite fruits the apple is more popular today than ever and with very good reason. What once were the only apples marketed in the US were Red and Golden Delicious and Granny Smith and though still popular today, the varieties have grown.

It turns out there are dozens of verities grown and available, many year round. Today we find Gala, Fuji, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Cortland, Empire and many more. Some sweeter and crisper than others.
ninety percent of the pesticides and fifty percent of the vitamins are in the skin. So eat only organic apples and keep the skin on. Apples are full of fiber, water and phytonutrients that serve the body very well. An apple a day is good and three a day are likely better!

As we move into winter the apples in the store will begin coming in from New Zeeland and the prices will begin going up. Consider adding more of them to your own diet and they are also great with almond butter!

Investigate them further and review one of the thousands of studies proving that apples are truly are in our best interest. Enjoy your weekend and Be Well!

An Apple a Day...

Vitamins and You in the New Year

Welcome to 2016 may you achieve all the outcomes you desire in this new year! Many folks have set their intentions on changes they wish in the new year and I am no exception. Twelve hours in and so far so good:) Enjoy this first day of 2016!

Flintstones vitamins came out when I was a kiddo and I recall taking one now and again but not on a regular basis. I heard no talk of vitamins really other than oranges and orange juice provided vitamin C. Although I had no idea what Vitamin C was good for I assumed it was something we needed.

Today properly prescribed and taken prescription medications kill well over 80.000 people each year or 219 people per day. Think those numbers are high? Merck killed off over 55,000 with some thinking that number could easily be closer to half a million people with VIOXX before they decided to pull it from the marketplace.

Vitamins on the other hand have never been attributed to deaths, ever. And yet the media, bought and paid for by its largest advertiser, big pharma, will allow garbage pieces like “vitamins cause cancer” etc. to be used without substantiation.
From curing cancer, MS, arthritis, to resolving Mental health issues including depression and schizophrenia in a matter of days, Mega dose vitamin therapy has been around, studied, and utilized for ages.

In 1750 it was discovered that limes/citrus would thwart scurvy but the medical establishment refused to acknowledge that fact for 50 more years allowing 100,000 plus more British sailors to perish before implementing it in their diet at sea.

I would like to share with you a movie all about vitamins and their role in our wellness and as a healing mechanism. Dr. Andrew Saul is considered the leader in orthomolecular medicine or taking of supplements to improve health and he is the leader in this film.

Also he does not sell anything, including supplements, so you can be assured is intent is only our increased knowledge leading to wellness. Over twenty medical professionals are in this film with half being MD’s, the list is located here:https://thatvitaminmovie.com/experts/

He has a brand new movie out and it is FREE for the next two weeks. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie and learn the truths about vitamins roles in our wellness and healing. All you need do is share a first name and email address. https://thatvitaminmovie.com/ Watch and Be Well-Happy New Year!

To know winter squash is to love winter squash

Few things come to mind faster than a pumpkin when it comes to thoughts of fall. A heavy fall crop, winter squash offers many variables and wanted to make sure you know how amazing it is for the body.

Its history dates back over 10,000 years from an area between Guatemala and Mexico as a food source though originally it was just the seeds that were eaten as the flesh was thin and bitter. Christopher Columbus took them back to Europe where they began to be cultivated.

A couple of the greatest things about consuming winter squash is that it is full of antioxidants and is an anti-inflammatory food of which we can never eat enough of. Full of vitamins A, C, B6, Manganese, copper, potassium, B2, folate, K, Omega 3 fats, magnesium, and B3.

In addition to being a nutritional friend to our bodies winter squash also helps regulate blood sugar and insulin in addition to being an amazing source of fiber.

Not prone to sharing recipes, I have to include this one as it is one of my favorites and is such a hearty vegan recipe that you have to try it! Feel free to make flavor variations that suit your taste. Have an amazing weekend, share if you like, eat some squash soon and Be Well!

Brett’s Autumn Hugs Hearty Squash Soup
• One large to medium butternut squash
• One acorn squash
• Two tablespoons coconut oil
• One white onion finely diced
• One teaspoon real salt
• One teaspoon white pepper
• One teaspoon ground nutmeg
• One teaspoon onion powder
• One teaspoon grounds ginger/garlic paste
• Seeds of 8 green and four black cardamom-ground
• 4 cups (1 large box) vegetable stock
• 2 cups soaked cashews (4 hours min)
• 2 cups of coconut water or water

Cut squashes in half, clean out seeds, brush flesh with coconut oil and sprinkle salt, pepper and nutmeg. Place face down on a sheet pan and bake in the oven for 60 minutes at 350. In a high-speed blender puree the soaked cashews and coconut water for several minutes, set aside. In a stock pot place remainder of coconut oil and onion, cook 5-7 minutes till translucent, then toss in other spices and ground cardamoms and allow to sizzle for up to a minute.

Add cashew mix and then add the flesh of both squashes. Once complete use an immersion blender to break things down as smooth as you like it, but not completely. This recipe delivers a thick and hearty soup and unless you’re dead set on a perfectly smooth soup try it with the small chunks in it. Top with freshly toasted pumpkin seeds and enjoy. This pot of soup serves several and if given an extra day for flavors to marry, all the better!

Cancer Industry exposed!

With the Truth about Cancer series still running for free and the 4th chapter begins tonight. To take part just click HERE. Why take the time out of your busy life to view this? Did you know that here in the US as it is in the UK, and Australia big Pharma and the cancer industry have a stranglehold on every single cancer patient?

Making money is their only focus and not helping folks to live longer lives. I base this solely on results. So no doctor anywhere can tell a patient to do anything other than surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. Even though there are dozens of other non-toxic options that work to remove cancers, they will face a fine, incarceration, and loss of licensing if they ever even hint at anything outside their profit center.

One in two men and one in three women will face cancer in their lifetime, but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence unless you listen to your allopathic doctor and become part of the cancer industries matrix of cut, burn, poison. The Truth about Cancer series covers so many aspects and effective solutions to cancer that I cannot state it enough to invest your time in watching it and for free right now!

If you still think the FDA, AMA and ACS care about you, I would ask if anyone has let you in on the Santa myth. Of all the evidence, I have poured through they only seem to care about those that fund them and keeping “diseases” profitable. As it is today all the processed food and beverage manufacturers, fast food, restaurants make money on the front end until you are sick then the medical establishment including the cancer hacks, get to make money on the back-end most often sending you to deaths door via their profitable, outdated, and often barbaric offerings.

I have to admit that most of my life I thought anything outside the medical norm was BS so if you’re thinking what I am sharing is BS I understand and would offer you to please investigate further.
Share this as you may and be very well!

Ready to learn the Truth about Cancer?

The entire reason I wrote Nutritional Truths was so folks could come out of the fog and learn that getting Cancer or another “disease” is almost always optional as is doing away with them. Many consider that cancer is not a disease but is a symptom of the body being out of balance. Solutions outside of cutting, chemo and radiation abound and are effective, but the medical establishment and media continue to perpetuate profitable lies.

Beginning Tuesday a new groundbreaking docu-series begins: The truth about cancer: A global quest. It will run for 9 days with a new episode each evening and it is FREE. Watch 100 doctors, researchers and specialists that focus in cancer prevention and treatment from around the world with a mission to make cancer a thing of the past!

The guy who has made this series Ty Bollinger is passionate about sharing what he has learned over the last several years of all the pathways to healing that are being used successfully. There is never a guarantee of wellness with any protocol but people are accessing non-toxic solutions all over the world now and many have learned that disease is an option.

Do you remember the story from up in Connecticut where a couples 17-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cancer and the parents and her decided to take the non-toxic route to wellness. Then the state showed up with a dozen patrol cars, removed her from the home, and strapped her down in the hospital poisoning her with chemotherapy against her and her parents will for several weeks? That’s not the first time that has happened in America and in this series she exposes the truth about it all.

I would encourage you to invest the time in watching these each night! If you think that the only thing to do if diagnosed with cancer is surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, I understand and please do yourself a favor and watch this! You and all those you love deserve to know these truths. All it requires is an email address and first name. Click HERE to register!

Puppy update: Tomorrow we have our new puppy trainer coming over to straighten us out. Paisley is growing like a weed and burrows deeper into the lawn and my heart each day. Please share this as you see fit and take the time to watch all of the docu-series and know the truth about ending cancer. Be well!

Contest Winners & Grounding Encouraged

Thanks for helping us spread the news on FB of the giveaway and audio version of Nutritional Truths becoming available on iTunes, Audible, and Amazon. Five winning names have been drawn, and they have all been notified. Again, thank you for your support!

We spent every moment not asleep or in a school outside in the 1970’s on our suburban residential street of 3/2 homes. Half a dozen of us in the front yard playing touch football, hide and seek, mother may I, or just sitting, laying down, running around, freeze tag, whatever, we were outside. We were all almost always barefoot since the lawns we played in were mostly grass.

Our immune system does well with a strong supply of electrons, and they can be had for free and in abundance via ones barefoot contact with the Earth. Seated or even lying down on the Earth will bathe you in electrons. Since inflammation is always a concern, these electrons produce antioxidants that help suppress it.

Not too long ago there were fewer issues with humans grounding, from all the time spent outside barefoot or wearing shoes with soles made of leather since electrons can pass through leather. However today plastic and rubber in footwear block the electrons from transferring and that coupled with many spending more time inside means much less grounding. We get to shift to spending more time outside barefooted. Once you begin to do it you will soon likely understand why folks rave about it.

In addition to consuming more things fresh from the Earth spend more time outside listening to nature and connecting with the surface of your planet. Doing so at this time will serve you well. Many times when seeking information I go to Mercola.com and objective intelligent and not dramatic information working to support true wellness is the focus.

Have an amazing weekend and connect with Pachamama barefoot! We go to pick up our rescue puppy from the breeder tomorrow, and I will share more later. Of course, I will include a picture now-Everybody likes puppies, meet Paisley! Share if you care to and Be well!

Everyone who does this will go into a drawing next week, and I will announce the winners next Thursday the 17th!

One of the most educational experiences I have had in some time is learning to market a book. After I became clear how almost all disease was an option and not our genetic fate I began writing Nutritional Truths. Time and again I hear folks talk about older relatives and disease as if genetics is why they are sick. Of course this is most often not true at all.

Almost always it is a result of repeated behaviors that supports and will often replicate illness. From food, beverages, thoughts, and behaviors to one’s perception of the world is either adding to one’s wellness or illness. As Dr. Wigmore used to say ” The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

All ten chapters can be read to you by me for free! Help me get the word out about Nutritional Truths as well as my blog at http://www.nutritionaltruths.com. In my blog, I cover topics that will support your efforts in knowing the truths about certain things that may impact you and your families wellness. If you ever have an idea for a blog or would like to suggest topics, please let me know.

The book covers foods, beverages and their ingredients that serve us well and those that support disease and death. Attitudes, behaviors and habits that support illness and those that support wellness. Learn the truth about environmental toxins we often expose ourselves to as well as truths about dentistry and its impact on one’s health.

Be introduced to medical pioneers and their effective solutions to disease over the past 100 years. Inspire yourself with stories from those who have faced a diagnosis and use alternative care to bring about wellness. Folks read or listen to Nutritional Truths for many different reasons. Like and share this now on Facebook on or before September 17th for your chance to win! Thanks and be well!
