Workplace stress, growing pressure at home and having to deal with all of the other issues that life throws your way can easily lead someone to develop anxiety. The United States is the most anxious country in the world, with 18 percent of the population suffering from some type of anxiety disorder. Learning more about stress, how it plays a role in your overall health and what you can do to treat anxiety will help you better manage the pressure and regain control moving forward. Some statistics to be aware of include:

• Anxiety accounts for $42 billion spent each year
• Since anxiety symptoms mimic physical illness, more people visit the doctor and receive medication
• Many medication options only mask symptoms and do not treat the underlying condition

Non-toxic solutions can help lower stress and manage anxiety without costly trips to the doctor and seemingly endless rounds of medication. Learn more about your options so you can live life on your own terms.

Coriander seed
Better Than Vitamin D? Revolutionary New Coriander Oil May Be Your #1 Tool in Health

“Let thy food be thy medicine, thy medicine be thy food.”
~Hippocrates, a.k.a. “The Father of Medicine”

Believed by The Chinese to Bestow Immortality, Coriander, or “Coriandrum sativum”, is a powerful herb with many health benefits … earning it the name The Wonder Herb.

Discovered by archeologists in Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen’s tomb, Coriander (also known as Cilantro) has been traced back to 5,000 BC. – with a long-history across the Mediterranean, Middle East, and Asia spanning thousands of years and playing a major part in ancient medicine. It was cited to cure small pox, and its medicinal proprieties were documented in Sanskrit and Greek writings. Coriander seeds have an impressive health-supporting reputation matched by very few, even today.

  • In Europe, Coriander has traditionally been referred to as an anti-diabetic plant.
  • In India, it has traditionally been used for its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • In the United States, Coriander is quickly gaining popularity for its cholesterol-lowering effects.

Coriander is rich in vital nutrients that exhibit anti-inflammatory properties, earning it a title of “gateway to health”. Coriander has potent liver supporting properties, thanks to an excellent profile of phytonutrients and bioflavonoids.

Coriander is a great source of minerals potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium, as well as vitamins including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin A, beta carotene, and a generous dose of vitamin C- all essential for optimal health.

Coriander Oil helps vitamin D

Vitamin D, no doubt is a vital part of everybody’s daily regimen, but relying on it alone to protect you from rapid aging can be a mistake:

  • Most supplements do NOT get absorbed properly
  • Vitamin D requires Vitamin K for proper synthesis
  • Vitamin D is a prohormone. (it requires sufficient healthy cholesterol to produce a useable form)
  • Vitamin D is FAT-soluble (absorption suffers from absence of lipid-fats to transport & carry INTO your cells)

Coriander Oil Solves Vitamin-D Problems

Because vitamin-D is fat soluble, it needs healthy fats to support it. Coriander seeds are loaded with essential fatty acids and aromatic oils. In fact, coriander contains 28.4% of seed weight – in total lipids!

There is ample evidence to suggest that vitamin A and K are necessary for proper assimilation of vitamin D. One serving of coriander contains roughly 400% the RDV of vitamin-K and ample amounts of vitamin A.

Common toxic metals like mercury, lead, aluminum and cadmium impair your body’s ability to produce sufficient vitamin D. Coriander oil has shown to aid in the removal of mercury, cadmium, aluminum and lead from the body!

Getting natural vitamin D from the sun is surely the best way, yet poses great skin cancer risks if you are antioxidant and/or omega 3 deficient!

And actually, omega-3 fat deficiencies are a far more significant risk factor for deadly skin cancers than sun exposure! Coriander oil provides you with a great source of omegas and antioxidants!

For omega 3 boosting power, coriander oil has been shown to increase the natural bioconversion of alpha-linoleic acid to EPA and DHA in animal studies.

Coriander Oil Protects Your Health

Blood Sugar Regulation

In 2009, type 2 diabetes affected 285 million worldwide. Today, in 2014, it affects 365 million people worldwide! Due the stimulating effect of Coriander oil on the endocrine glands, the secretion of insulin is increased from the pancreas, increasing the insulin levels in the blood. This regulates the proper assimilation and absorption of sugar and results in healthier blood sugar levels.

Removes Heavy Metals

Metal toxicity is a known contributor to chronic diseases such as Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. Coriander has shown to be a potent mobilizer of mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum from the bones and central nervous system.

It is also the only known substance to get inside entry to the cell – dislodging toxic metals attached to cell organelles, from within the nucleus of the cell – and actually reversing the DNA damage that had been caused!

Coriander oil helps with the secretion of enzymes and digestive juices in the stomach, thus stimulating peristaltic motion, and overall digestion. And also because of its antioxidant, antifungal, and antibiotic effects, coriander oil has shown to help increase absorption in the stomach.

Because of its powerful anti-fungal properties, coriander has been proven to be effective at killing Candida albicans overgrowth and any accompanying digestive invaders. This promotes the proliferation of healthy gut bacteria and improves immune system function.

Consuming coriander oil daily reduces the amount of damaged fats (lipid peroxides) in the cell membranes. Studies have shown it to lower bad cholesterol levels, and increase good cholesterol levels. A study in rats demonstrated that coriander’s combination of linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and ascorbic acid (vitamin-C) are effective in also reducing cholesterol deposits along the inner walls of the arteries and veins.

Coriander oil consumption has been shown to reduce blood pressure in patients suffering from hypertension.

Coriander contains coriandrol, a substance used to treat liver cancer. When combined with a healthy diet, Coriander is believed to be effective in helping to prevent certain cancers such as liver, breast and colon cancer.

Coriander oil has shown DRAMATIC results against all major food-borne illness! Researchers from the University of Beira Interior in Portugal report that oil extracted from coriander seeds can kill bacteria related to food-borne diseases. They tested the effect of coriander oil on 12 bacterial strains, including E. coli, salmonella and MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant type of staphylococcus. Of the 12 tested strains, every bacteria strain showed reduced growth, and most were destroyed completely.

pests attack a mineral-deficient plant

If you’ve never heard about MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane), then this is a “must-read” for you.

MSM contains by weight 34% Organic Sulfur (organic means bound to a carbon atom). Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in your body (after calcium and phosphorus) and it’s crucial to maintaining good health.

The primary function of Sulfur is transporting oxygen across your cell membranes. Without intracellular oxygen, your health declines and you age sooner, rather than later. So obviously, better oxygen transportation = better health.

Plants can draw sulfur from the soil – mammals cannot.
We must ingest sufficient quantities every day.

The Biggest Effect of Oxygenation from Sulfur is on Cancer!

Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize winner in 1931) proved that cancer in humans is anaerobic, meaning it rises in cell that are low on oxygen. Cells in permanent oxygen deprivation switch from respiration (efficient conversion of glucose into energy, byproduct is carbon dioxide) to fermentation (inefficient energy conversion, byproduct is lactic acid).

Just think about what better cellular oxygenation could do to shrink and stop cancerous tumors – they all thrive in oxygen deprived cells!

Oxygen Transportation Across Cell Membranes Improves…

  • Cellular respiration (conversion of nutrients into energy, then waste elimination)
  • Healthy cell regeneration
  • Recovery from fatigue
  • Athletic performance
  • Tissue rebuilding – this is the short list.

In conjunction with transporting oxygen across the cell membrane, Sulfur has demonstrated its ability to detoxify heavy metals, another benefit for cell regeneration.

Sulfur is also a key element for your body’s ability to assemble amino acids – your body’s building blocks. Of all the amino acids, some 70% are Sulfur-based.

Sulfur also helps with skin health, blood pressure and circulatory regulation, scar tissue reduction, pain reduction and damaged nerve regeneration.

Tap Water with Chlorine/Fluoride Blocks Sulfur from Your Body!

The periodic table of elements shows sulfur, selenium, and tellurium as the only oxygen transport minerals. Further to this, chlorine and fluorine are detrimental to oxygen transport, yet they’ve been added to drinking water, to make our teeth healthier and our water more pure – free from bacteria.

These elements – chlorine and fluorine – are poisonous at higher concentrations, and they block your body from using oxygen and Sulfur!

Our Food Supply is Devoid of Sulfur

Thanks to chemical fertilizers and unfortunately, it looks like they’re not about to stop using fertilizers to grow food – ever faster and aver cheaper, and ever less nutritious.

Yes, you can do something about it: make bio-available sulfur part of your daily nutritional program. It should be on your “must-have” list – or at least it deserves to be.


ipad-digestion-imageAre you one of the sixty-percent of Americans afflicted with at least one symptom of digestive dysfunction?

Take your pick: gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal pain, candida, constipation, diarrhea — the statistics say that more than likely you are experiencing one or more of them, right now, at this very moment.

Living with digestive problems has become the new normal. Typically, they begin as minor complaints — a little indigestion here and there, the occasional tummy ache or bout of heartburn.

Watch the Digestion Sessions – free lectures.

Sooner or later, what was once a minor annoyance becomes something that can literally take over your life. This usually happens for two reasons — embarrassment and ignorance.

Let me explain. Who likes to talk about their digestive problems? What happens in the bathroom is a private matter, right? So you keep it to yourself and hope it goes away. But it doesn’t.

And that’s when you find yourself in the doctor’s office, finally revealing every detail of what you’ve been going through for months, maybe years.

At some point during this cathartic act of courage you realize that you’ve used up all of the 12 minutes of your allotted appointment time and suddenly find yourself in the pharmacy with a prescription for a drug that comes with two pages of side effects.

No exam. No testing. No investigation whatsoever into what may be causing your symptoms. Just a guess, and a pill.

What now?

THAT is the very question hundreds of millions of people worldwide are asking about their digestive problems.
Today, we come with some answers. Current medical practice has fallen 10+ years behind the latest research. Decades will pass before your doctor recommends what most recent research is discovering.

Chances are, your doc is unaware of the growing number of research studies demonstrating these alarming findings:
  •  The toxicity of persistent constipation may cause common, everyday symptoms like fatigue, attention deficit, and brain fog.
  •  Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are almost always rooted in digestive dysfunction.
  •  The inflammation from gut dysfunction can spread throughout the body, causing inflammation in the brain, joints, and other important organs.
By the way, inflammation in the gut may also shut down your body’s ability to burn fat. Not good.

Most doctors are either unaware of this information and are too busy to learn. Meanwhile, people like you are paying the price in unnecessary suffering and medical bills.

You can put a stop to it. Now.

Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness — a real life health crusader —  put together a FREE online event called The Digestion Sessions, featuring 25 on-camera expert interviews and gut-healing cooking classes on all things digestion — so you can get the answers you’ve been looking for. Without the 17-year wait.
Here’s a sneak peak…

if-not-nowIf you are in Oregon or in Colorado, or know people in the two states, please get involved: On November 4, two mandatory GMO food labeling ballot initiatives: Measure 92 in Oregon and Initiative 105 in Colorado will be decided.

It is no exaggeration to say that these two ballot initiatives will determine the fate of food in America.

Despite the fact that the Gene Giants (Monsanto Dupont, Dow, Syngenta, BASF, and Bayer), backed by the world’s largest junk food manufactures (Coca Cola, Pepsi, Kraft, General Mills, Kellogg’s), have spent over $30 million to mislead and confuse voters in these two states, latest indications are that voters in at least one state, Oregon, will vote for mandatory labeling, while voters in Colorado (where the Yes on GMO labeling forces have been outspent 25-to-1) may still pull off the most amazing longshot victory of 2014.

What is important to understand is that a victory in either of these two frontline states will have a profound impact.

Since genetically engineered (GE) crops and foods were forced onto the market in the 1990s by Monsanto and the FDA, with no safety testing and no labels required, aware consumers have been trying to either ban or to require mandatory labeling of these uninvited “guests”.

This unprecedented national grassroots movement that has persevered for over two decades, despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent by the GMO and junk food industries to buy off federal and state lawmakers and regulatory agencies.

America’s contemporary food fight is not just a battle for health and sustainability, but a fundamental struggle over whether we and our children will live in a Democracy or a Corporatist State.
