The Joy of Cold Brewed Coffee
Love your coffee, but hate the acid? Then cold brew and live happily ever after. Dr. Ralph de Amicis, Master Herbalist, Naturopathic physician and coffee lover explains the simple way to brew a high flavor, low acid coffee and the benefits that come with that.
1: Use a wide mouthed glass container to cold brew to make it easier to clean in between.
2: Choose a holding container that fits in your fridge easily, preferably in the door.
3: The more you stir it the darker the coffee.
4: If you want it dark then stir it 100 times three times in the day. If you want it light just stir it once at the beginning.
5: Let it sit for an hour or so before you transfer from the brewer to the holding container so the coffee grounds can settle to the bottom.

Pretty Much Paleo
For serious healing we recommend using the Paleo Diet with your herbal and supplement program. Don't judge the diet by its name or make assumptions about its content. Read this section and you will see the good sense in it compared to the SAD or Standard American Diet. Its three greatest benefits are that it boosts the metabolism, reduces inflammation and unclogs the body's systems. We offer free health consultations to members in our Nature's Sunshine Products Group.
We read a survey recently that showed that most of the people using the Paleo diet were between the ages of twenty and thirty, and obviously included many serious athletes. Well, we are not in that age group, and in fact as grandparents, we found it odd that our age group was the smallest percentage. Then we remembered how hard it is for people to change their diet. Even though the population over fifty is the group who would most benefit from the anti-inflammatory affects of this diet, very few of them will adopt it.
Part of the problem is trapped toxins. Over the years the body builds toxins in the tissue and when you use the Paleo Diet the body will start to release them, and that can be uncomfortable. The key is to do an extended cleanse through the various systems, large intestine, small intestine, liver, kidneys, blood and lymph, over six months to clean out the junk in an effective and gentle way. Then you can take full advantage of the diet and probably feel years younger.
We admit that's a pretty big commitment to restoring good health and honestly many people would rather be in pain than stop eating the foods they love. The secret is to learn to love certain foods more and see other foods as pain. If you would like to pursue this path to great health contact us and we will guide you to the cleansing products and the diet. Read about the cleanse and other articles and videos HERE.

Motivated Health Products
Many health problems are caused by a lack of honest information. In the mid-90's we started speaking and consulting on natural healing through herbalism, nutrition and healthy environments. That's when we began as managers and distributors of Nature's Sunshine Products, our primary herbal and supplement company.
Over the next decade, we taught a Master Herbalist Program and led a Naturopathic Physician Study Group with Trinity College of Natural Health. As part of our teaching we wrote the 10 Minute Herbalist Book Series. OurConsultationapproach considers both human physiology and the emotional experience as well as the health of your environment.
Most people visit our site looking for answers. If you'd like help in your journey to health and ease in your life, feel free to contact us using this form. In our own years of searching for answers, we found that the reliability and purity of Nature's Sunshine Products was unsurpassed in the supplement industry. We have used and recommend these products almost exclusively since 1995. The integrity of both the company and their products has provided the gift of good health to our many friends, family and clients.
We offer solutions for that and many other problems through our educational programs, speeches, seminars and consulting. The sections on the Paleo Herbalist discusses one of the most healing diets we have encountered in over forty years of research. Healthful Hints answers the most often asked questions. Staying Healthy at Work is only important if you work and want to stay healthy. We consult on health, homes and work places.
Always on the search for new tools, one of the most powerful products we have encountered in many years is called Laminine. This supplement promotes the healing and rebuilding action of stem cells and we have seen some remarkable results. One of the most pleasant results is greatly improved sleep, not a small thing. Also neurological improvements, memory, acuity and improved communication are reported as well as reduction of pain levels for people with chronic issues. The key is that areas that have resisted healing suddenly advance dramatically. Once you read the materials you will see the possibilities. Ask us to send you some more details.
