Benefits of Wheatgrass – a Full, Comprehensive, Cited Article

2 by / on June 14, 2011, 3:19 pm

OK – so we had a team meeting here at 877MyJuicer.com and noticed a lack of a well researched, cited article describing the History of Wheatgrass, What Wheatgrass Is,  The Benefits and Uses of Wheatgrass, the Scientific Analyiss of Wheatgrass, Side Effects of Wheatgrass and Growing Your Own Wheatgrass.  If you have 10 minutes, really read this article. Not only is it very interesting, but it answers all of the questions we have received since 2004 when we launched the business! So – what do you do when you see a problem?  You solve it.  877MyJuicer sought out a professional research writer [...]

A Look Back At The Year

0 by / on December 30, 2009, 1:11 am

Throughout this year we’ve talked about everything from an aching back to wheatgrass.  I’ve asked you to have a good cry, think twice about your non-dairy creamer, and made you wonder about your energy drinks.  There have been recipes for smoothies, raw ice cream, living foods and lots of other things you can make and juice with your juicer or blender.  We’ve talked about feelings (a lot) and I gave you alternatives to help you heal heartburn, warts, constipation, insomnia, cancer, stress, PMS, lyme disease and diabetes, to name a few.  Looking back at your year in health, how have [...]

Tips For The Emotional Eater in All of Us

0 by / on December 23, 2009, 1:11 am

Most of us know the feeling…..when our emotions are too much to handle and we want to deny or bury them with food.  Or if we just don’t know what we are feeling and food is the comfort we have always turned to.  I am an emotional eater.  After turning to a mostly living food lifestyle, I still tend to indulge in the sugar treat, but it only makes me feel crappy.  Alas, even the emotional eating part of my life has changed. When you feel your strongest cravings for food, chances are you are at your weakest point emotionally.  [...]

Grief….It’s a Process

0 by / on December 11, 2009, 7:58 am

I’m writing this the morning of my father’s passing.  I wanted to use this as a part of my own process of grief.  And I will post it immediately. Most of you know my father has not been well.  He suffered a heart attack over seven years ago, and most of the doctors he saw told him he was a high risk and would not do any surgery.  He also did not want to do anything invasive.  He walked around for the past seven years with 30% of his heart working.  During the last years he worked through some issues [...]

Can Diet Reverse Diabetes?

0 by / on November 6, 2009, 1:11 am

A new documentary was released recently called Raw For 30-Days.  It followed five Americans suffering from Adult Onset Type II Diabetes.  These participants underwent a radical 30-day diet and lifestyle change.  They were hoping to reverse their diabetes or reduce their insulin dependency.  All subjects were eating a standard American junk food diet and were insulin dependent and diabetic when they started this process.  They were taken to the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona to undergo a 30-day health regimen.  They ate 100% raw organic living foods that would reverse their Diabetes naturally.  They had to give up [...]

I’m Anxious Writing about Anxiety!

0 by / on October 2, 2009, 1:11 am

I’ve been an emotional person for as long as I can remember.  But in pictures of me as a child, I always had a smile on my face.  No matter what was going on internally, I managed a smile for those around me.  That smile also hid the pain inside, the confusion, the internal dialogue, and the sadness.  As I grew up I learned how to hide it even more with eating, perfectionism and typical type A behavior.  Anything sound familiar yet?  Here I am in my late forties and perimenopause sneaks in over the last year and because of [...]

For The Women in the Audience

0 by / on September 25, 2009, 1:11 am

I am at a point in my life where I wonder…is there something else I could be doing to feel better?  It seems when I hit 40, it was harder to stay fit and healthy and another weird symptom appeared every month or so.  At 47, I am wondering about perimenopause, fatigue, my thyroid, weight gain, stiff and achy joints and even heart palpitations.  It is my intention here to share a little of what I am going through and maybe help you find some answers too.  My menstrual cycle started changing about a year ago.  Longer, shorter, heavier, lighter….all of [...]

Childhood Obesity On The Rise

0 by / on July 10, 2009, 4:00 am

I don’t remember the morning program I was watching the other day that stated Colorado and Vermont are two of the thinnest states in the United States and that obesity is on the rise throughout the country.  Fast food restaurants are popping up on every street corner in America.  Why Colorado and Vermont?  They say because they are four season states.  The ability to get out there and exercise throughout all four seasons is more readily available in these states.  I believe, since I’ve lived in Vermont for over 20 years that it is also because there are less fast food [...]

Food Allergy Or Food Intolerance?

2 by / on June 18, 2009, 1:09 pm

A food allergy is an immune system response and a food intolerance is a digestive system response.  Does a certain food give you a rash, nausea, airway restriction, itchy skin, diarrhea or shortness of breath?  That would mean you have a food allergy.  Food intolerance symptoms are stomach pain, nausea, cramping or bloating, heartburn, headache or vomiting.  According to Webmd,  ”A food allergy is an immune system response. It occurs when the body mistakes an ingredient in food — usually a protein — as harmful and creates a defense system (antibodies) to fight it. Food allergy symptoms develop when the [...]
