  • Any favorite recipes? I tried the chimp salad and the Thai cucumber one. Both were excellent.
  • I also heard that excess stomach fat could be due to high stress levels causing too much cortisol in your body. Also, it might not be fat but improper food combining or detoxing causing the release of excess gases in your intestines (i.e., bloating)…
  • Okay. My major obsession is Lord of the Rings – specifically the Elves. Has anyone read the Silmarillion? Star Wars is a close second though, and Battlestar. Newbie, I was thinking it might be Ellen also. It can’t really be anyone who was on the shi…
  • Omega Nutrition sells a product that can be used for washing veggies as well as for body soap. They use orange oil, and it smells nice too! When I do wash my veggies I use this. http://www.omeganutrition.com/
  • I’d like to see this happen. It would certainly bring down the price of organic foods and cut the need for fuel. Also, it’s really easy to use dilute seawater as a fertilizer for plants when grown hydroponically. That way food would also be more nut…
  • Cool! Nothing beats professional feedback.
  • Mon46, I henna my mom’s hair and it covers grey just fine. I use body art quality henna though. Maybe try a strand test, because henna would be better for you than even the natural haircolours out there. Go to a site called hennaforhair. They have a…
  • http://www.amazon.ca/Pacific-Seaweeds-Louis-Dru… Much cheaper than a $500 course!
  • I’d suggest reading up about interval training. A study I’d read once showed that people loose weight much quicker than with endurance training.
  • I’ve thought about toothsoap, but heard some people saying that they felt toothsoap was irritating their gums. Then if baking soda scratches and glycerin prevents re-mineralization of the enamel, then what is one to do? Ardesmond2, the ionic toothbr…
  • Meditating, how do you find a good dental hygienist?
  • I was wondering about the baking soda thing also. I’m realigning my teeth now, so I have to brush them every time I eat. Apparently glycerin prevents the enamel from re-mineralizing. Since glycerin is in every single toothpaste – natural or not, tha…
  • Dried or fresh wild nettles are best. They have 3X the iron as spinach and it’s non-heme iron, which means it’s more absorbable. You can probably find the dried stuff in health food stores. Also, try taking it with a source of vit C, like camu camu …
  • I found the heat difficult to deal with the first day, but it gets easier very quickly. One of my instructors said that it actually helps rehydrate your body – provided you drink enough water. I’d say just go and try it out for a week and see if it …
  • Haven’t tried Ejuva, but it looks interesting. I’ve done the colon cleanse from Blessed Herbs and that got results. Also, Bikram yoga will really help because you do a lot of twisting and some of the postures increase blood flow to your intestines. …
  • I agree, Stella McCartney’s stuff is awesome! Although, quite expensive. For some more affordable links: http://www.bboheme.com/ http://www.alternativeoutfitters.com/ http://www.mooshoes.com/index.html http://www.mattandnat.com/ http://www.ethicalwa…
  • Try interval training instead of endurance training. Or maybe alternate them.
  • . . . and if he does have drug problems it forces him to deal with it and go through withdrawl. It can’t be to fun, but it sounds like he was pretty desperate person and his life couldn’t have been to great anyways. Maybe now he’ll get the councilin…
  • Yeah, I’m not exactly going to carry around a glass jar of water either. Here is what they say on Sigg’s website: http://www.mysigg.com/ I have heard stories about the safety of aluminum. Should I be concerned about drinking from an aluminum SIGG bo…
  • I know that Sigg has tested their bottles and they are certified to leech nothing into the water. Also, I think the insides are made of a type of ceramic coating which will bend rather than crack if the bottle is dropped. However, their thermal bott…
  • Oh god, those things! I bought one and threw it out the next day because my water tasted like plastic. I’m sticking with Sigg from now on. Good link though SocaL.
  • Fluoride pills? That’s got to classify as some new level of insanity.
  • I remember hearing that fluoride is present in rat poisons. Yum! There’s a lot of good into on fluoride in Paul Bragg’s book on water, although I’m sure the internet has a lot of info also. I think it’s a byproduct of some chemical manufacturing (do…
  • Queenfluff, thanks for the info about ozonation! I was able to find a couple pools which use it. Apparently Europe has been using it for the last 50 years. One disturbing quote:

  • I’m thinking of getting back into swimming also. However, I think chlorine really is quite bad for you. Maybe not as bad as lack of exercise though. If you enjoy it, then don’t spend your time worrying about the chlorine. I’ve been swimming in pools…

  • lol. I like this topic . . . When my dad and his friend first came over from Prague they bought a some cans of dog food for dinner, thinking it was people food. They weren’t used to the idea of packaged dog food, and didn’t really speak English yet.…

  • Yep. I know the price is steep, but it’s better to support a company producing healthier products. Gabriel Color’s mascara is a bit cheaper. Also, mascara is one of the more toxic makeup products . . . and considering it’s so close to your eyes.

  • You might want to try Larenim. They have great colours, don’t process their minerals with bismouth oxychloride, and the particles are too large to pass through the skin. I also like Dr.Hauschka’s mascara, and Gabriel Color’s. Aveda has a really nice…

  • I don’t know what could have gone wrong. I make mine the exact same way and it never separates. Maybe you didn’t mix it enough(?) If you have a champion juicer you can grind the nibs down into chocolate – kind of like making nut butter. There’s a re…
