NOURISH YOUR ADRENALS
TOWARDS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
By Donna Gates
Your adrenals are the real
“workhorses” of your body.
In fact, there is not a single
function in your body that
occurs without your adrenals
playing some key role. And
yet, most of us today—from
baby boomers and people
under a lot of stress to hyperactive children—
are walking around with chronically deficient
adrenals. Because our adrenals are intimately
involved in each of our body’s functions, the
symptoms of adrenal fatigue are wide-ranging.
For the seventy five million baby boomers that
are or soon will be seeking the “fountain of

youth,” healthy, happy adrenals must become
part of your formula for success.
SOME SYMPTOMS
OF
ADRENAL FATIGUE
I firmly believe that weak adrenals play an underlying role in every symptom we are suffering
from today. Some of these symptoms are: cravings for sugar or salt, a feeling of dehydration,
difficulty falling asleep, general exhaustion, feeling spacey, foggy thinking, lack of willpower to
accomplish, low libido, hormone imbalance,
loss of muscle tone, weight gain (especially abdomen and waist area) and early aging.
JUST WHAT ARE THE ADRENALS?
Adrenals are little organs, about the size of a
walnut, that sit on top of your kidneys. In Chinese medicine, the kidneys/adrenals are said
to be where life force or chi energy is rooted.
Their name indicates their place in our body.
Ad means “near” or “at” and Renes means “kidneys”. In a nutshell, our digestive system, the
organs in our brain (e.g., hypothalamus and picontinued on page 8
Letter From Selina
Dear Readers,
First, I want to thank you for being a listening
audience. The overwhelmingly positive response
I receive from your letters is an affirmation that
these words are a gift from the spirit of God—
they come from my hand, but the message is
much greater than me.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the struggle
to find our purpose in life. Often, we arrive at a
certain place in our lives and wonder what is supposed to happen next—what are we supposed to
do, what is our destiny? Even when we see the
infinite abundance around us and recognize that
anything is possible, it is still often difficult to understand what to do with our
limitless resources. The central question of life is often not how to accomplish a
goal, but what it should be to begin with. Many times, we deny our true purpose
with phrases like “I can’t”, “I don’t have enough”, “I am sick and tired”, or “I will
never be able to”. In reality, this type of negativity is really just a manifestation
of our own fear of failure.
Maybe the problem is that we have not yet fully surrendered. Surrender is
often viewed in a negative light. We often associate surrender with an admission
of defeat and therefore, failure. I like to think of surrender in a different way—
as a state of mind in which I am able to release ideas or habits that are no longer
serving me. I challenge you to surrender fear, weakness, and ego—replace your
negative words and thoughts with the reality of your own ability to manifest incredible abundance through positive affirmation. Play the ‘pivot game’ described
by Esther Hicks in her book Ask and It Is Given; pivot all negative and limiting thoughts to positive ones. Wayne Dyer once said “Loving people live in a
loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.”
Surrender can clear the path to your purpose; it can free you from your ego,
and fill you with bliss. If you are living your life in bliss, you are really connected
to God. You become less susceptible to thoughts of fear, anxiety, laziness, anger,
and mediocrity. Embracing your bliss during the storms of life will make you
stronger. Your weaknesses do not matter; choose to transcend them by focusing
on your strengths and not your limitations. Surrender, and let miracles manifest
through you.
I just returned from a trip to Haiti with my daughter Carla and Susan,
our photographer. You can see some of the photos from this trip on our website www.celticseasalt.com. While I was there, I had a vision of prosperity and
peace for Haiti; the creation of a self-sufficient community built on respect for
humanity, the land and other natural resources. In Haiti, Darfur, and countless
other places around the world, people are hungry for peace. Even in the most
desperate places, miracles are possible—nothing is too big for God. While in
Haiti, I had a conversation with a UN representative from Pakistan. He said
“If we could share all our resources instead of using more than we need, there
would be no war. There is corruption and greed everywhere, and this is the real
cause of aggression.”
Even with issues as serious as these, perhaps surrender is the answer. Keep
peace in your heart and release the temptation to judge others and think others
are out to get you. Surrender to the reality that we are all connected. Try it, and
be amazed at the limitless beauty and bliss you can manifest in your own life
and in the world around you.
Peace be with you,
Selina

HAITI AND THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF SALT
While we tend to take salt for granted, it has occupied a
rather extraordinary position in human affairs until quite
recently. The need for salt has been a driving force behind
economic and political endeavors throughout most of human history. The earliest trade routes were established to
supply the demand for salt; and its great value has financed
wars and inspired revolutions.
For some, the economic impact of salt continues to this
very day. Salt, in a very literal sense, was the vehicle that
launched this company. Over 30 years ago, we introduced
the world to Celtic Sea Salt®, in the process creating a new
category in the natural foods industry. While Celtic Sea
Salt® was, and is, essential to our vision, over time we have
been able to build on this foundation to share other healthpromoting products. But more importantly, it gave us a
platform to share a message of personal empowerment; of
taking control and responsibility for one’s health.
Today, our vision quest continues. Like kings and adventurers of old, we have explored the horizons of our own
world of salt, seeking to bring back new treasures that we
might share with our members and customers. Over the
past few years, we have sought out other exceptional salts
from around the world. We have invested considerable resources to visit different salt-producing regions and have
these exciting new salts analyzed and tested to ensure they
meet our standards for purity, taste and nutritional attributes.
We value and honor the trust you place in us as one
of our customers. Because we will only accept the best for
you, this has been a long, but rewarding process. At last, we
are ready to begin sharing with you some of our discoveries.
Out of all the wonderful salts we have discovered over
the past few years, probably none has captivated our attention more than a magical salt we discovered almost right
under our nose on the island republic of Haiti. This salt has
a clean, distinctive flavor, but more importantly, it also has
an amazing nutritional profile.
But the salt itself is only part of the story. In Salt: A
World History, Mark Kurlansky notes that salt’s ability to
preserve and sustain life has made it a metaphorical symbol
in almost all of the world’s religions. At The Grain & Salt
Society®, we embrace this metaphor and seek to make it
real. To borrow a phrase from the Bible, we desire to be
“salt of the earth;” a force for good in the world.
The economic facts of life for the Haitian people are
not pretty. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western
Hemisphere, with 80% of the population living in extreme
poverty. In the last 25 years, Haiti has not seen a period
toll free 1-800-867-7258
of sustained economic growth. In fact, the economy has
shrunk an average of 2% each year during this period.
Much in the same way that salt fueled revolutions in
the past, we believe that the Haitian salt will help bring
about a revolution. Not a political revolution, but an economic one. We are exploring the possibility of partnering
with a team of businessmen, one of whom is a native Haitian. They are committed to a vision of economic prosperity for the Haitian people and a long-term goal to turn
this salt producing area into the island’s most prosperous
region. Please understand, we are not talking about aid.
While there is a definite short-term role for philanthropic
activity, the long-term economic wellbeing of the Haitian
peoples lies in “teaching them to fish.”
The business team we are working with has invested
considerable amounts of time and personal finances to get
this project off the ground. We will consider it an honor
and a privilege to play a part in making their dream a reality.
Recently some of our team had the wonderful opportunity to visit Haiti. While they were charmed by the
warmth of the Haitian people, they also came away with
a sense of urgency to educate people regarding the situation in Haiti, and to also bring this salt to the American
market. We certainly hope this urgency is contagious. Stay
tuned for more details about the Haitian salt and our other
discoveries from the world of salt. ❂

HEAVY METAL OVERVIEW
By Brenda Watson, N.D., C.T.
Did you know that the expression “Mad
as a Hatter” originated from 19th century felt hat makers who were chronically
exposed to mercury compounds? What
about the fact that many historians attribute the fall of the Roman Empire to
widespread acute lead poisoning? The truth is toxic metals
are found in almost every environment. Your home, job,
and even recreational park may be threatening your wellbeing. Arming yourself with the ability to make informed
decisions today will ensure the health of you and your family tomorrow.
HEAVY METALS
A heavy metal is an element with a specific gravity (atomic
weight) of 5.0 (five times the density of water) or greater.
While laymen tend to use the term “heavy metal” interchangeably with “toxic metal,” this is technically not correct. Some heavy metals actually have a relatively low toxic
potential, while others are quite toxic to the body in any
amount and should be avoided. The problem is that such
toxic heavy metals permeate our environment to such an
extent that total avoidance is all but impossible.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration regulates a number of toxic metals and their compounds, including
arsenic, aluminum, antimony, beryllium, cadmium, cobalt,
copper, hexavalent chromium, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, nickel, selenium, silver, tin, vanadium, zinc.
From www.osha.gov/SLTC/metalsheavy/index.html
You will recognize some of these elements as nutriRenew Life, Inc. founder Brenda Watson is a naturopathic doctor
and colon therapist. Founder of 5 Natural Health Clinics, she
is also the author of Renew Your Life and is considered one of

tive minerals – manganese, selenium, chromium, zinc and
iron. While varying amounts of these important nutritive
minerals are needed to maintain health, excessive amounts
can create toxic conditions. Likewise, some metals known
for their toxicity, such as aluminum, are actually needed
in trace amounts by the body. At elevated levels, however,
they become toxic.
(NOTE: while not technically a “heavy” metal, aluminum is definitely a toxic one when body burden exceeds trace amounts.)
TOXIC METALS
Our concern here is with the major toxic metals: aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury and nickel.
Once these have accumulated in the body, they’re not easily released from storage and flushed from the body, as they
tend to be harbored in fatty tissue. Their continued presence in the body’s tissues creates an ongoing toxic condition that contributes to nutrient deficiency and can lead
to serious illness. Toxic metals tend to accumulate in the
immune system and in the brain and kidneys where they
can disrupt normal functioning.1
Although heavy metals are naturally found in the earth’s
crust in varying concentrations, human activity over the
last 100+ years has greatly increased their presence in the
environment. Since the Industrial Revolution, heavy metal
production and distribution have rapidly accelerated, so
that the air, water and soil of the planet have become permeated with these metals. Heavy metals tend to persist and
accumulate in the environment (as in the body), for they
cannot be degraded or destroyed. They are used extensively
today as components of numerous products, though the
consumer is generally unaware of their presence in the
seemingly harmless product. Below are listed some of the
common sources of the major toxic metals.
Two of the most toxic of the heavy metals, mercury
and nickel, just happen to be the most abundant in the
bodies of people living in industrialized nations.2 Although

we are becoming increasingly aware of the health hazard
posed by “silver” amalgam dental fillings (which are at least
50% mercury), most people still have these in their teeth.
We also have a lot of nickel in our mouths in the form of
stainless steel crowns, root canal posts and braces.3 “Nickel
is both the most allergic and the most carcinogenic metal
to which we’re exposed.”4
Although each metal produces its own set of unique
symptoms at toxic levels, we can generalize to some degree about the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning. On the
right are some of the common symptoms.
There are several laboratory tests your doctor can order
to screen for the various heavy metals. Specialized analysis
of urine, stool and hair can be of value, as well as “challenge” tests, which involve the use of chelating agents that
bind with heavy metals, pulling them out of the body.
Both intravenous and oral chelating agents have been
used to lighten the body’s burden of heavy metals. Regardless of the therapy selected, it is imperative that sources of
contamination be identified and removed or at least minimized. This can entail amalgam replacement with biocompatible materials or even a complete dental revision, where
all procedures previously done may be modified or redone.
Other measures to reduce the body’s burden of heavy metals may include use of air and water purification devices in
the home and special care with selection of consumer products. Going “organic” in selection of foods of all types can
be very helpful in minimizing pesticide exposure, as can
avoidance of conventional pesticide use in the home and
COMMON SYMPTOMS OF HEAVY METAL POISONING
A metallic taste in the mouth
Numbness, tingling in the hands and feet
Frequent urination
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Twitching of facial (and other) muscles
Poor circulation (cold hands and feet)
Developmental retardation
Kidney/liver damage
Constipation and/or diarrhea
Leg cramps
Heartburn
Skin rashes
Poor memory
Temper tantrums
Joint pain
Rapid heart beat
Insomnia
Excessive itching
Chronic fatigue
Abdominal bloating
Immune suppression
Depression
Irritability
opting for “least toxic” alternatives. Refer to the common
sources of heavy metal toxicity, and take steps to eliminate
them.
The above information is only the beginning. If you
suspect that you or someone you love may have acute toxic
metal poisoning visit a health care practitioner immediately. A regular detoxification program may prevent the
accumulation of toxic metals and avert chronic poisoning.
Remember, education is key to understanding your risk.
The Internet and your local library offer a wealth of information on toxic metals. ❂

DESTROXIN - FIGHTS ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS
HEAVY METAL CLEANSE
Destroxin is a revolutionary all-natural
supplement made from crystalline zeolite, a
microporous mineral formed from volcanic
ash and sea salt over millions of years.
Zeolite has been used for years in air and
water purification systems, but medical
researchers have recently discovered its
amazing benefits as a detoxifier, immune
booster and cancer fighter. Zeolite’s
honeycomb structure and negative electrical
charge act like a magnet, drawing heavy
metals and other toxins out of the body. It
also removes yeast and other fungus and
can help stop diarrhea. Studies have also
shown that Destroxin enhances vitamin absorption if taken
while eating—allowing for more efficient assimilation of the
food you eat. Zeolite’s potential as a cancer therapy is also being
investigated and early results show great promise. For centuries,
powdered forms of zeolite have been used as traditional
remedies throughout Asia and it was used by the Russians after
the Chernobyl disaster to absorb radioactive toxins. The form
of zeolite in Destroxin has been recognized as safe by the FDA.
Destroxin also includes calcium and vitamin B12.
“Heavy metals” is a term generally
given to metals that are considered to
be toxic because they interfere with
the normal functioning of the human
body. According to cancer researchers
in Switzerland, over 90% of serious
and chronic conditions are directly
related to heavy metals and other
dangerous environmental toxins.
Heavy Metal Cleanse is an easy-to-use,
two-part cleanse program that contains

SARDINES
As mercury levels continue to rise in our rivers, lakes, and
oceans, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of health
officials are sounding the alarm. While extremely dangerous for developing fetuses, babies and small children, mercury poisoning in adults may cause brain damage, kidney
malfunction, circulatory failure, and a variety of other ailments including: fatigue, numbness, irritability and loss of
controlled muscular movement. Methylmercury, a highly
toxic form of mercury stored in the tissue of fish and other
animals, attacks the nervous system and kidneys. Worse
yet, methylmercury does not decrease naturally over time,
but biomagnifies up the food chain. In other words, when
a carnivorous fish devours the flesh of another fish, its
degree of contamination increases exponentially according to the amount of mercury contained within every fish
the consumed fish has already eaten. With the number of
states issuing advisories urging citizens to vastly decrease
their consumption of wild caught fish steadily growing, the
EPA has released a warning that long-lived and large predatory fish may have mercury concentrations 1 to 10 million
times higher than concentrations in water alone.
IS THERE A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE?
Near the southern tip of Africa between the months of
May and July, a frenzy begins as millions of sardines travel
from their spawning grounds northward with the current.
A seemingly endless supply of food attracts thousands of
dolphins, sharks, whales and sea-diving birds. Coastal villagers gather along the beaches in anticipation of this unusually rich source of protein driven literally to their feet.
Unlike herring, bristling and other small soft-boned fish
commonly marketed in the U.S. as “sardines,” the coastal
waters of Portugal, Morocco and South Africa are among
the only permanent sources for true sardines. This tiny species of fish eats mainly krill and plankton, thus avoiding
the concentration of mercury contamination encountered
when eating larger predatory fish. They also live relatively
short lives, making them unlikely candidates for absorbing
large amounts of mercury from their environment. But
don’t let their size fool you; these little guys pack quite the
nutritional wallop! With heart-healthy Omega-3s, energizing B-12, and the amazing cellular maintenance of CoQ10, the health benefits from sardines inarguably outweigh
any chance, however minute, of mercury consumption.
Along the southern coast of Portugal in the Algarve region,
villagers have long observed sustainable fishing practices,
providing their community with fresh, wholesome seafood
for hundreds of years. Now a protected fishing sanctuary, these pristine coastal waters are free from factories and
barges, thus reducing the amount of mercury and other
polluting toxins. ❂

33 WAYS THE BODY RESPONDS TO REBOUNDING
By Dr. Morton Walker and Albert E. Carter
The study of the human body is fairly interesting. The moment it becomes no less than amazing is when we understand
what happens as the body is placed under the demands of movement and resistance we call exercise. Rebounding is an
effective exercise that reduces your body fat; firms your arms, legs, thighs, abdomen, and hips; increases your agility;
strengthens your muscles overall; provides an aerobic effect for your cardiopulmonary systems; rejuvenates your body
when it’s tired, and generally puts you in a state of mental and physical wellness. In fact, there are at least 33 fascinating
ways the body responds to regular rebounding, detailed below:
1. Rebounding provides an increased G-force (gravitational
load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems.
2. Rebounding protects the joints from the chronic fatigue and
impact delivered by exercising on hard surfaces.
3. Rebounding helps manage body composition and improves
muscle-to-fat ratio.
4. Rebounding aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the
millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system.
5. Rebounding circulates more oxygen to the tissues.
6. Rebounding establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
7. Rebounding increases capacity for respiration.
8. Rebounding tends to reduce the height to which the arterial
pressures rise during exertion.
9. Rebounding lessens the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.
10. Rebounding assists in the rehabilitation of a heart problem.
11. Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone
marrow in the production of red blood cells.
12. Rebounding improves resting metabolic rate so that more
calories are burned for hours after exercise.
13. Rebounding causes muscles to perform work in moving fluids through the body to lighten the heart’s load.
14. Rebounding decreases the volume of blood pooling in the
veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic edema.
15. Rebounding encourages collateral circulation by increasing
the capillary count in the muscles and decreasing the distance
between the capillaries and the target cells.
16. Rebounding strengthens the heart and other muscles in the
body so that they work more efficiently.
17. Rebounding allows the resting heart to beat less often.
18. Rebounding lowers circulating cholesterol and triglyceride
levels.
19. Rebounding lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad cholesterol)
in the blood and increases high-density lipoprotein (good cholesterol) holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease.
20. Rebounding promotes tissue repair.
21. Rebounding for longer than 20 minutes at a moderate intensity increases the mitochondria count within the muscle
cells, essential for endurance.
22. Rebounding adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which
may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
23. Rebounding improves coordination between the propreoceptors in the joints, the transmission of nerve impulses to and
from the brain, transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibers.
24. Rebounding improves the brain’s responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving balance.
25. Rebounding offers relief from neck
and back pains, headaches, and other
pain caused by lack of exercise.
26. Rebounding enhances digestion
and elimination processes.
27. Rebounding allows for deeper and
easier relaxation and sleep.
28. Rebounding results in better mental performance, with keener learning
processes.

People who rebound find they are able to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous. The effect is not just
psychological, because the action of bouncing up and down against gravity effectively stimulates the lymphatic system
without trauma to the musculoskeletal system. This unique discovery is central to the reasons rebounding has become one
of the most beneficial forms of exercise ever developed. ❂

Adrenal Fatigue - continued from page 1
tuitary), our thyroid, liver, endocrine system, sexual organ
system, heart and central nervous system don’t work when
the adrenals have lost their life force or “spirit.”
ARE YOU DEPLETING YOUR ADRENAL BANK ACCOUNT?
Keeping in mind that all of your body’s organs rely on
your adrenals for energy, it really isn’t surprising that when
things start to go wrong, exhausted adrenals are involved.
Think of the adrenals as a bank - too many trips to withdraw money with very few or no deposits and you soon
exhaust your supply. We create adrenal burnout.
FOUR COMMON CAUSES OF ADRENAL FATIGUE
Lets take a quick summary of those lifestyle habits that
contribute to adrenal fatigue. Then I promise to offer you
a perfect and complete dietary solution.
• Too Much Sugar: The body works hard to maintain a healthy acid-alkaline balance. The blood needs to
be slightly alkaline. Sugar in any form is acidic, so when
we eat too much of it, our body will find minerals from
anywhere it can to produce this slightly alkaline blood.
Eventually our bones and teeth will be forced to surrender
their minerals to obtain those needed in the bloodstream,
creating osteoporosis.
• Stress: Stress enlists the body’s fight or flight response,
including secretion of hormones like cortisol, which over
the long haul devastates the adrenals. Cortisol is often
called the “death hormone,” because too much of it can
impair your immune function and cause early aging. Cortisol raises your blood sugar level, which can lead to weight
gain. Elevated blood sugar (glucose) causes your blood to
become quite acidic and attractive to fungus, yeast and
cancer.
• Diets High in Animal Protein: Most people have
weak digestive systems, which are unable to digest protein.
Once in the intestines, the improperly digested protein
creates toxins and gasses that are poisonous to our body.
• Drugs: Americans are currently enamored with
drugs, and whether the drugs are recreational or medicinal,
they weaken your adrenals. Cortisone, steroids, overuse of
antibiotics, birth control pills and Viagra are just some examples.
HOW TO HEAL YOUR ADRENALS
Restore Your Inner Ecosystem: The Body Ecology Diet
is perfect for healing the adrenals because it restores and
maintains the body’s inner ecosystem. No other system of
health and healing focuses more on the importance of fermented foods. These probiotic-rich foods supply essential,
dynamic microflora and beneficial yeast that will quickly
colonize in your intestines. At Body Ecology we have long

SYMPTOMS OF ADRENAL FATIGUE

focused on these beneficial microflora and have a unique
understanding of what they do. Our theory, based on the
latest research, is that they communicate to our gut wall
(aka our “gut brain”) sending signals via the enteric nervous system to the central nervous system. They clean up,
balance and restore harmony to the entire body over time.
It is the microflora that create our inner ecosystem, and
without them your adrenals will never become robust and
hardy.
NUTRIENTS THAT CREATE RESILIENT ADRENALS
The foods you choose to eat today create tomorrow’s energy. But you must choose food that generates energy and
doesn’t subtract from your energy.
While I am focusing here on some specific guidelines
around “what” to eat for nourishment, there are critical
principles in my book, like acid and alkaline, proper food
combining and the principle of uniqueness that demonstrate “the how.” (editor’s note: The Body Ecology Diet has
once again been recently updated to a new ninth edition.)
Vitamin and Mineral-Rich Foods: The adrenals must
have a rich and steady supply of Vitamin C, B-Vitamins
and plenty of minerals. Ocean vegetables and dark green
leafy vegetables are high-mineral foods that I recommend
having at every meal. If you can’t do that, you can obtain the benefits of ocean vegetables by taking ocean plant
supplements.
Fermented Foods: An excellent way to build up
healthy microflora is fermented foods. Microflora communicate with each other to ensure we have what we need
to be healthy, young and vital – including vitamins and
minerals.
Cultured vegetables: When fermenting vegetables, lactobacilli and enzymes naturally present in the vegetables
proliferate, creating an enzyme-rich, mineral-rich super
food. When made with cabbage, cultured veggies are rich
in Vitamin C.
Kefir: In the early stages of the BED, I recommend
young coconut kefir. It’s an excellent source of B-Vita-
toll free 1-800-867-7258
www.celticseasalt.com
mins, and minerals. To make this, ferment the water from
young, green coconuts. This produces a champagne-like,
fizzy drink that helps control cravings for mineral-depleting carbohydrates and sugar. It aids digestion and helps
cleanse the kidneys, heart and liver of toxins including
mercury and other metals. In the later stage of the BED,
I recommend adding kefir made from milk and fermented
soyfoods, like natto, miso and wheat-free tamari.
Healthy Fats: Fats “drive” minerals into the bones,
warm the body and provide energy. On the Body Ecology
Diet we emphasize the importance of using a variety of fats.
Cod liver oil, raw butter and ghee are good sources of Vitamin A for the thyroid, which is intimately connected to the
adrenals. For a complete listing of healthy fats, see our latest edition of the Body Ecology Diet. Quality is important
too. The amount of fats and oils you consume each day
should be based on your individual needs and your ability
to digest them. Your ability to digest them improves as you
eat fermented foods and drink fermented beverages.
Green Vegetable Juices: Most juice recipes contain high
amounts of concentrated sugars from sweet fruits, carrots
and beets, which can feed yeast and opportunistic organisms. We make our juices with 75% celery (high in sodium
– a must for adrenals), along with romaine lettuce, parsley
and a very sour green apple.
Reduce or Eliminate Sugar: Sweet tastes are important
in our diet, but it’s the type of sweets that makes the difference. I suggest the use of stevia, a sweet-tasting herb, as
well as xylitol and Lo Han.
Use Sea Salt: High quality Celtic Sea Salt® has medicinal value, is high in minerals and restores the body’s balance.
Substitute Coffee with Tea: Many teas are healing and
aid digestion. Green tea is a favorite of mine, which is why
I created an easy, on-the-go style of decaffeinated green tea
that can be hot or cold to fit with busy lifestyles.
KEFIR STARTER
Kefir is an ancient cultured food rich in
amino acids, enzymes, calcium, magnesium,

how to markedly reduce their risk
not only of prostate cancer—but also
enlarged prostate and prostatitis. Equally
important, Dr. Katz shows men the best
treatment protocols for these conditions.
He also describes breakthrough clinical
trials with Zyflamend, a proprietary
herbal formula that reverses precancerous
prostate conditions known as PIN. Dr.

ZYFLAMEND FOR PROSTATE HEALTH
Data from the Columbia University Department
of Urology indicates that Zyflamend has
value as an early therapy for prostate cancer
patients. The data, published in the October
edition of Nutrition and Cancer, showed that
Zyflamend has the ability to reduce prostate
cancer cell proliferation by as much as 78%
and induces prostate cancer cell to self-destruct
via a process called apoptosis. Research has
also confirmed that Zyflamend has COX-1 and
COX-2 anti-inflammatory effects.

AVIAN FLU: FACT VS. FEAR II
By Robert Allison
Editor’s Note: Part 1 of this article appeared in the Spring
2006 issue of A Grain of Salt©. You can view this article online at www.celticseasalt.com.
In the last issue, we presented an overview of the H5N1
virus, commonly referred to in media reports as the “avian”
or “bird” flu. Although additional cases of human infection have been reported, experts still remain divided on
the likelihood of the H5N1 influenza ever developing into
a human pandemic. In the interest of being prepared, we
will examine some natural remedies that researchers believe might be useful in the of a serious human outbreak.
VITAMIN D
Some researchers believe that the H5N1 virus, like the
Spanish Flu of 1918, is particularly dangerous because
of its ability to initiate a cytokine storm or inflammation
cascade. In simple terms, the theory is that in attacking
the virus, the body overreacts, with the immune response
damaging the body.
A study by German researchers suggests that vitamin
D dampens the production of cytokines by macrophages,
the white blood cells that are one of the body’s first lines
of defense. A study by scientists at the German Research
Centre for Biotechnology found that macrophages can release vitamin D3 as a self-regulating component to keep
the inflammation from overshooting the mark. Research
at the University of Bonn indicates that vitamin D supplementation can enhance this immune modulating effect.
In the November 2005 issue of The Vitamin D newsletter, Dr. John Cannell, M.D. reports on the research of
Dr. Colleen Hayes, PhD. of the University of Wisconsin.
Her study seems to indicate that vitamin D has profound
effects on the immune system, especially in fighting infections. Something to consider the next time the flu season
rolls around, whether it is the avian variant or just the seasonal flu.
For information on vitamin D, visit: www.vitamindcouncil.com.
VITAMIN C
Vitamin C researcher Dr. Robert F. Carthcart, M. D. has
pointed out that the H5N1 virus can display symptoms
similar to hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola and the Hanta
virus. Carthcart believes these symptoms are the result of
acute vitamin C depletion, similar to scurvy. An ancient
disease caused by insufficient vitamin C, scurvy was at one
time the scourge of sea explorers, soldiers and others whose
diets were lacking in fruits and vegetables. Carthcart believes that hemorrhagic fevers, as well as avian flu, could be
successfully treated with massive doses of vitamin C.

HOMEOPATHY
Homeopathy is a scientific system of health care which
stimulates the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Homeopathy is based on the law of similars, which states that
“like cures like.” During the Spanish Flu of 1918, homeopathic physicians are reported to have achieved remarkable
success in treating that strain of influenza, which many researchers believe is similar to the H5N1 virus.
The Spring / Summer 1998 issue of The New England
Journal of Homeopathy featured an article by homeopathic
historian Julian Winston, which outlined the success of
homeopathic physicians in treating the Spanish Flu. In the
article, Winston notes that many of the practitioners reported a 99% success rate using homeopathic remedies.
According to Sandra Perko, author of The Homeopathic
Treatment of Influenza, the most common homeopathic
remedies prescribed for influenza include Arsenicum album, Baptisia, Bryonia, Eupatorium perfoliatum, Gelsemium, Influenzinum, Phosphorus, Rhus tox, and Oscillococcinum®.
For information on homeopathy and viral infections, you can visit
the following sites:
www.homeopathic.org/flu_home.html
www.nesh.com/main/nejh/samples/winston.html
COCONUT OIL AND BIRD FLU
According to Dr. Bruce Fife, coconut oil possesses powerful anti-viral properties that can kill any flu virus, including the H5N1 strain. Fife notes that studies have shown
that the fatty acids and monoglycerides derived from the
medium chain triglycerides found in coconut oil are effective in killing lipid-coated viruses, like the H5N1 influenza. Fife, a leading authority on the therapeutic benefits
of coconut products, believes that consuming a couple of
spoonfuls of coconut oil daily can enable the body to fight
off any infection more efficiently. ❂
CURCUMIN / TURMERIC
Curcumin is the compound that gives turmeric spice its
bright yellow appearance. To date, there have been no tests
to evaluate its effectiveness against the H5N1 virus, but
its anti-inflammatory properties are well established. A review of the research literature would seem to indicate that
curcumin may be effective in reducing the potentially fatal
effect of an avian flu cytokine storm.
Other substances that might dampen cytokine-related

as much exposure to sunlight as fair-skinned people to generate
the same amount of vitamin D. That’s why prostate cancer is epidemic among black men—it’s a simple, but widespread, sunlight
deficiency.
7. Sufficient levels of vitamin D are crucial for calcium absorption in your intestines. Without adequate vitamin D, your body
cannot absorb calcium, rendering calcium supplements useless.
8. Chronic vitamin D deficiency cannot be reversed overnight;
it takes months of vitamin D supplementation and sunlight exposure to rebuild the body’s bones and nervous system.
9. Even weak sunscreens (SPF8) block your body’s ability to
generate vitamin D by 95%. This is how sunscreen products can
actually cause disease—by creating a critical vitamin deficiency

10. It is impossible to generate too much vitamin D in your
body from sunlight exposure; your body will self-regulate and
only generate what it needs.
11. If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum, you may be suffering from chronic vitamin D deficiency right now.
12. Vitamin D is “activated” in your body by your kidneys and
liver before it can be used.
13. Having kidney disease or liver damage can greatly impair
your body’s ability to activate circulating vitamin D.
14. The sunscreen industry doesn’t want you to know that your
body actually needs sunlight exposure because that realization
would mean lower sales of sunscreen products.

WHAT IS ASTAXANTHIN?
Astaxanthin is a red pigment occurring naturally in a wide variety of living organisms. Although the word astaxanthin
may not be commonly encountered in everyday speech, the pigment itself is found in many foods, and you are quite likely
to be consuming it in your diet already. Most crustaceans, including shrimp, crawfish, crabs and lobster, are tinted red by
accumulated astaxanthin. The coloration of fish is often due to astaxanthin; the pink flesh of a healthy wild salmon is a
conspicuous example. In commercial fish and crustacean farms, astaxanthin is commonly added to feeds in order to make
up for the lack of a natural dietary source of the pigment. Not only does astaxanthin provide for pigmentation in these
farmed animals, it also has been found to be essential for their proper growth and survival.
Astaxanthin is one of a group of natural pigments known as carotenoids. In nature, carotenoids are produced principally by plants and their microscopic relatives, the microalgae. Animals cannot synthesize carotenoids from scratch, thus
ultimately they must obtain these pigments from the plants and algae that support their food chains. The astaxanthin
molecule is similar to that of the familiar carotenoid beta-carotene, but the small differences in structure confer large
differences in the chemical and biological properties of the two molecules. In particular, astaxanthin exhibits superior
antioxidant properties to beta-carotene in a number of in vitro studies. While the positive effects of astaxanthin on farmed
fish and crustaceans have been recognized for years, preliminary research indicates that astaxanthin may offer potent
therapeutic benefits in the areas of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disease, as well as eye health.
Some researchers now believe that astaxanthin also acts as an “internal sunscreen,” allowing for longer sun exposure by
defending against the free radicals generated by prolonged exposure to UV rays. ❂

CHOCOLATE: FOOD
OF THE
GODS
By Theresa Green
The Mayans and Aztecs knew for thousands of years the amazing health benefits
of raw chocolate made from cacao. They
believed that the beans gave sacred wisdom
and knowledge to those who ate them. At
one time, cacao beans were used as currency and were more valued than gold.
What is it about chocolate that makes it
so desirable?
Cacao beans are rich in a number of essential minerals,
including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper,
potassium and manganese. Cacao appears to be the richest source of magnesium of any food. Magnesium is one of
the key minerals that regulates and strengthens the heart. A
strong heart is capable of powerful love. Many Americans,
around 80%, are deficient in this most important mineral
and suffer symptoms like allergies, asthma, headaches, lethargy, not to mention all the emotional suffering caused from
a closed down heart. Also many women who suffer from
osteoporosis may be deficient in magnesium, not calcium.
Calcium and magnesium work together and need each other
to properly get absorbed. Cacao is also high in sulfur. Sulfur
builds strong nails and hair, promotes beautiful skin, detoxifies the liver, and supports healthy pancreas function.
Cacao and raw chocolate are also known as “love foods”
because they contain PEA (phenylethymine) “the joy molecule.” PEA assists the uptake of dopamine and is responsible
for the euphoric feeling we get when we fall in love or receive some sort of great pleasure. It has been determined that
people who are deficient in PEA can have trouble focusing
or feel depressed. This can cause them to seek pleasure (the
release of PEA) by over-eating. This makes raw chocolate,
because of its high PEA content, a great appetite suppressant. Other mood-elevating molecules in cacao are Anandamide, “the bliss chemical” and tryptophan.
When chocolate is mixed with milk or sugar it loses may
of its health promoting properties. Raw chocolate, which
has not been heated over 113 degrees, is up to seven times
more potent than dark chocolate. That means raw cacao
is seven times higher in antioxidants than dark chocolate!
Speaking of antioxidants, cacao rates higher than acai and
pomegranates on the ORAC scale and cacao has ten times
more antioxidants than blueberries (and twenty times more
than red wine). When chocolate is consumed in its natural,
unprocessed state, the health benefits are superior to those
of dark chocolate. ❂

THE HEALTH BENEFITS
HEMP, FLAX AND MACA
OF
By Ruth Shamai
Most of us find maintaining a healthy
diet in our busy and active lives extremely challenging. One key to a
healthy diet is to start your day with
protein, and a raw certified organic
protein is best. Ruth’s Hemp Protein
Powder with Sprouted Flax and Maca combines three
amazing superfoods – hemp, sprouted flax and maca -- and
is a great choice to start your day, maintain alkalinity in
your body, and make you feel wonderful.
BENEFITS OF HEMP SEED
The hemp seed is a nutritional powerhouse – a nearly perfect food with complete protein, along with all essential
fatty acids – Omegas 3, 6 & 9 -- and some rare fatty acids. Ruth’s Hemp Protein is naturally derived from the
hemp seed, grown on the Canadian prairie. The seeds are
processed at ultra-low temperatures to ensure that the raw
protein and essential fatty acids remain intact.
BENEFITS OF SPROUTED FLAX
The benefits of incorporating flax into your daily diet are
well researched and documented, and may include:
•Lowered blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar
•Lower risk of heart attack, stroke and cancer
•Improved eyesight and memory
Many people take flax for the Omega-3s and lignans it
contains. But some don’t derive the maximum benefit
from flax because the seed is not sprouted. Sprouted seeds
and grains are among the most complete and nutritious
foods available. A seed uses its stored protein and carbohydrates for the germination process. As those nutrients are
used, they change - proteins and complex carbohydrates
break down into amino acids and simple sugars. Enzymes
once dormant become alive and active. This process makes
sprouts a “pre-digested” food - ready to be used by your
body for energy and rebuilding.
Enzymes are the nutrients and biological catalysts that
aid in the elimination of toxins and the construction of new
tissue, muscle, nerve cells, bone, skin and glandular tissue.
Every single system of your body depends upon enzymes.
The rich enzyme concentration in sprouts can stimulate
heightened enzyme activity in your metabolism, leading
to regeneration of the bloodstream. There are 10 to 100

times more enzymes in sprouted seeds than in vegetables
or fruits -- depending on the enzyme and the seed that is
being sprouted. There is no food on the planet higher in
enzymes than sprouted seeds.
BENEFITS OF MACA
Maca is a small root vegetable grown at high altitudes in
the Andes. Known as the Incan superfood, it is rich in trace
minerals, including zinc, iodine and phytosterols. Peruvians have eaten maca for centuries for conditions related
to hormonal balance. They use it to increase fertility, improve sexual function and alleviate menopausal symptoms.
Young mothers and athletes alike take maca to improve
energy levels, mental clarity and focus. Ruth’s Hemp Protein with Sprouted Flax and Maca contains 5,000 mg per
serving of raw, certified organic maca. It’s a powerful combination designed to give you lots of energy, achieve and
maintain weight goals, promote skin and intestinal health
and gain hormonal balance to deepen your enjoyment of
life’s pleasures. ❂

SILICA COMES OF AGE
by Rick Wagner
Silica’s importance in overall optimal bodily function has been recognized for quite
some time. As early as 1878, Louis Pasteur
predicted that silica would be found to be
an important therapeutic substance for
many diseases and would play a significant role in human
health and consequently nutrition.
RESEARCH
During the 20th century, progress was made by pioneering researchers and scientists such as Carlisle, Butenandt,
Iler, Bergna, Kervran, and Schwartz. Edith Carlisle’s work
in the 70’s through the 90’s at the UCLA School of Public
Health, perhaps more than any other, demonstrated the
necessity of having silica in the body for proper growth and
development. As a result of her research, we know that silica
is absolutely essential for the body to create and maintain
collagen. What was dramatically shown through Carlisle’s
research was that when silica is withheld from normal nutrition, gross abnormalities develop and normal growth
does not take place. While Carlisle’s work was done with
chickens and mice, humans have also been experimenting
with silica.
Human experimentation has yielded some amazing results. Where animal research showed the absolute necessity
of silica for healthy and normal growth maintenance, human research has demonstrated the effects of silica supplementation on a much broader spectrum of maladies from
youth through middle and old age.
The necessity of silica for collagen formation and development is the basis of many of these physiological effects. Collagen is the tough fibrous material that holds us
together. Many aging problems are a direct result of the
body’s inability to maintain adequate collagen. Think for
a moment about the following aging problems: joint deteRick Wagner is the Founder and CEO of Eidon Liquid Ionic Minerals, a
manufacturer and distributor of liquid mineral supplements. Rick holds a
Masters Degree from San Diego State University and is currently completing his degree as a Certified Nutritionist.
EIDON SILICA
Research at the UCLA School of Public Health
showed silica to be essential in collagen
formation and calcium assimilation, vital for the
maintenance and repair of bones, joints, skin, hair
and nails. Silica may also help alleviate tooth &
gum disease, gastrointestinal issue and symptoms
of osteoarthritis.

needed to repair damaged tissue.

rioration, brittle bones, hardening of the arteries, dry skin,
inability to digest food properly, weakened teeth and gums,
and atrophying organs. They all are collagen related in one
form or another. When we are young, silica levels in our
body are high and our bones and joints are flexible. Our
skin is supple and glowing. As we age, silica levels decline
and without adequate tissue levels of silica, we manifest
many of the symptoms of aging such as joint disease, weakened digestion, and wrinkled skin, to name a few.
NUTRITIONAL AND THERAPEUTIC APPLICATIONS FOR SILICA
1. Connective tissue strengthening and support (joints,
ligaments and muscles)
2. Bone strengthening and support through enhanced calcium absorption - Within bone, silica is the essential component making up the collagen matrix upon which calcium
is deposited. This relationship is so fundamental that it is
truly impossible to form bone without both calcium and
silica. In fact, researchers are exploring the possibility that
supplementation of silica, rather than calcium, may be
what is needed for maintaining strong bones.
3. Strengthening of teeth and gums
4. Cardiovascular support - Silica in adequate quantities
creates supple arteries and veins and is effective in removing plaque from artery walls. This has actually been known
since 1958 when Loeper and Loeper found arteriosclerotic
artery walls showed excessively high levels of calcium and
lower than normal levels of silica.
5. Stomach and digestive disorders - Most disorders of the
stomach and digestive tract involve a degradation of the
lining in the G.I. tract. Silica is an essential element involved in rebuilding and maintaining these tissues.
6. Immune system enhancement - Our skin is our first line
of defense against naturally occurring bacteria, viruses, and
other pathogens. Silica promotes and maintains healthy
skin tissue.
7. Wound and burn healing - Silica stimulates the rapid regrowth of damaged skin tissue.
8. Thinning hair, brittle nails, and dry skin - All of these
external parts of our body are collagen based.
9. Aluminum elimination enhancement - Silica has been
shown to be a good eliminator of aluminum. Aluminum
has been implicated as a cause of Alzheimer’s disease.
While the above areas may seem quite diverse, in actuality they are directly or indirectly related to proper collagen formation. Given that connective tissue is basically
collagen, the inability of the body to rebuild this tissue will
result in excessive injuries, general deterioration, or excessively long periods of healing time when injuries occur.

SAUERKRAUT-
HARSCH PICKLING CROCKS
SCIENCE MEETS TRADITIONAL WISDOM
Sauerkraut and other dishes made from fermented cabbage have long been a staple of many traditional diets. Fermented cabbage has been valued for providing the beneficial bacteria and enzymes vital to digestive health and is a
source for important vitamins and minerals.
Now, scientists are confirming that sauerkraut is indeed a nutritional powerhouse. Researchers in Finland
have identified compounds in sauerkraut that may fight
cancer. They found that the process of fermenting cabbage
produces isothiocyanates, a class of compounds that have
been identified in previous studies as potential cancerfighting agents. “We are finding that fermented cabbage
could be healthier than raw or cooked cabbage, especially
for fighting cancer,” said Eeva-Liisa Ryhanen, Ph.D., research manager of MTT Agrifood Research Finland. “We
are now working on ways of optimizing the fermentation
process to make it even healthier so that consumers will eat
more sauerkraut.” Beside anticancer compounds, the fermentation process also produces other healthy compounds
not found in raw cabbage. These include organic acids such
as lactic acid, which makes cabbage easier to digest. ❂

TO SUPPLEMENT OR NOT TO SUPPLEMENT?
The age-old debate rages on with a definitive swing in favor
of supplementation. The American medical establishment
is also beginning to embrace the need for supplementation
to enhance health and longevity.
Why is there a need to supplement with silica if it is
the second most prevalent element on earth? The reason is
threefold:
1. As we age, scientific measurements have shown that the
human body retains less and less silica.
2. Silica does not occur in sufficient amounts in a wide
variety of foodstuffs. It is primarily found in natural oats,
millet, barley, wheat and potatoes. If we eat these foods at
all, they are normally refined to a point where all the silica
has been removed.
3. The average American diet does not contain adequate
levels of essential nutrients, especially silica.
Studies have shown that the average person ingests between 20 to 60 milligrams of silica daily depending upon
their diet. Results from people who have supplemented
with silica at 375 mg per day support silica’s effectiveness
and reinforce the fact that 20 to 60 milligrams per day is
not adequate. According to researchers, some form of daily
silica supplementation will be very beneficial. ❂

HIGH-VITAMIN BUTTER OIL
High-vitamin butter oil is produced from the deep yellow
butterfat of cows eating rapidly growing green grass. This
beautiful golden oil is rich in nutrients including a powerful catalyst called “Activator X,” discovered more than fifty
years ago by Weston A. Price, D.D.S. Dr. Price considered high-vitamin butter oil to have extraordinary healing
properties, especially when taken with cod liver oil.
HIGH IN THE ALL-IMPORTANT VITAMIN A AND OTHER
FAT-SOLUBLE VITAMINS
Dr. Price discovered high-vitamin butter oil to be an exceptionally rich source of fat-soluble vitamins, which he
deemed a necessary catalyst for all biological processes.
Sufficient intake of fat-soluble vitamins, particularly vitamin A, is essential for growth, proper utilization of minerals and water-soluble vitamins, and normal development
of the brain, and the nervous and reproductive systems.
CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACID (CLA)
Studies have shown that CLA has a broad array of health
benefits, including abilities to fight cancer, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, and promote weight loss. Researchers also believe that CLA can help boost the metabolic
rate, lower insulin resistance, and enhance immune system
function. CLA also increases hormone sensitive lipase activity, an enzyme that breaks down fats stored in fat cells
on the body. The fatty acids are returned to the blood
stream to be used as an energy source for muscle cells.
CLA directs the body to use fat reserves for energy.
STEARIC ACID
Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid. Recent research suggests that diets high in stearic acid help lower total blood
cholesterol. Beef fat and cocoa butter also contain significant amounts of stearic acid.
BUTYRIC ACID
Butyric acid and other short chain fatty acids are taken
up by the intestine to be used for energy. Butyric acid is
specifically an important energy source for the cells lining
the colon, where it seems to assist with normal cell development and maintenance. Butyric acid seems to reduce
chronic inflammatory conditions of the colon, and high
fecal levels of it correlate with decreased risk of colon cancer.
THE WULZEN FACTOR
Called the “anti-stiffness” factor, this compound is present in raw animal fat. Researcher Rosalind Wulzen discovered that this substance protects humans and animals
from calcification of the joints—degenerative arthritis. It
also protects against hardening of the arteries, cataracts
22
and calcification of the pineal gland. Calves fed pasteurized milk or skim milk develop joint stiffness and do not
thrive. Their symptoms are reversed when raw butter (and
raw High Vitamin Butter Oil) are added to the diet. The
Wulzen Factor is not present in the dairy products available
in supermarkets, as it is destroyed by pasteurization.
SHORT- AND MEDIUM-CHAIN FATTY ACIDS
Butter contains about 12-15% short and medium-chain
fatty acids. This type of saturated fat does not need to be
emulsified by bile salts but is absorbed directly from the
small intestine to the liver, where it is converted into quick
energy. These fatty acids also have antimicrobial, antitumor
and immune-system-supporting properties, especially 12carbon lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid not found in
other animal fats. Highly protective lauric acid should be
called a conditionally essential fatty acid because it is made
only by the mammary gland and not in the liver like other
saturated fats. We must obtain it from one of two dietary
sources—small amounts in butterfat or large amounts in
coconut oil.
ARACHIDONIC ACID (AA)
A 20-carbon polyunsaturate containing four double bonds,
arachidonic acid is found in small amounts only in animal
fats. Arachidonic acid (AA) plays a role in the function of
the brain, is a vital component of the cell membranes and
is a precursor to important prostaglandins.

DR. WESTON A. PRICE’S DISCOVERY OF ACTIVATOR X
Dr. Weston A. Price was a pioneer in research and writing
on nutrition and how it related to physical degeneration.
He traveled the world during the 1930s and 40s, studying
the health of different cultures, and relating his findings to
differences in diet and nutritional make-up of the foods
consumed.
One startling discovery that never gained proper notoriety in the sciences was Dr. Price’s work with high-vitamin
butter oil and Activator X. Dr. Price noted that all primitive diets he observed contained large quantities of Activator X, a potent fat-soluble catalyst found only in organ
meats and butter from animals raised exclusively on rapidly
growing green grass, and in some seafoods such as fish eggs.
This powerful catalyst helps the body absorb and utilize
minerals, and plays an important role in brain and nervous
system development, rebuilding of body tissue, repair of

catch phrase of mainstream nutritionists, Morris realized
that some foods triggered insatiable cravings even when
eaten in small amounts and were therefore best avoided entirely. Morris realized that some foods were better than others, and that the best foods of all were those that Mother
Nature intended for us to eat, foods that were consumed in
their freshest, least adulterated state.
Consuming fat-rich meats and dairy foods left Morris
feeling satisfied and truly nourished. The distinctly unsatisfying and refined carbohydrate-laden low-fat foods aggressively marketed as healthful did little except leave Morris
with a ravenous appetite. When Morris made animal fats
a central fixture of his diet, he found that his insatiable
hunger literally vanished and that he was able to effortlessly
slash his calorie intake by more than half!
Morris learnt that fat was the body’s version of high-octane fuel. Where exercise once left him drained, exhausted,
and eventually void of further motivation, he now found
that he could train regularly and strenuously.
Morris realized that his fortunes took a dramatic turn
for the better only when he accepted responsibility for his
own health, and started seeking out information first hand
instead of unthinkingly soaking up the tainted advice from
so-called authorities. Morris emphasizes that those who
wish to follow in his footsteps will need to adopt a similar mindset. If you are looking for a quick-fix, Morris offers none. He instead offers something far more valuable;

teeth and bones and promotes sex hormone production.
SYNERGY OF BUTTER OIL AND COD LIVER OIL
Research shows that butter oil and cod liver oil, taken together, provide complementary factors leading to proper
essential fatty acid balance. High-vitamin butter oil contains arachidonic acid (AA), an omega-6 fatty acid, while
cod liver oil is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), an
omega-3. Moreover, the saturated fatty acids in the butter
oil promote efficient utilization of the unsaturated fatty
acids in the cod liver oil.
“Dr. Price was often called to the bedsides of dying individuals, when last rites were being administered. He brought
with him two things—a bottle of cod liver oil and a bottle of
high vitamin butter oil from the cows eating growing grass.
He put drops of both under the tongue of the patient—and
more often than not, the patient revived.” (From Nourishing
Traditions, by Sally Fallon with Mary G. Enig, Ph.D.) ❂

Says Morris of his book: “My goal was to convey a realworld first-person perspective, using plain language, that could
be read like a story. I’ve talked to so many people who are
intimidated by the very idea of “science” and “research.” I’m
hoping my book can serve as a bridge by introducing people to
a perspective that challenges their beliefs and motivates them
to start thinking and researching on their own.”
Morris has succeeded superbly. A Life Unburdened
is two books in one; a deeply moving story of his battle
against seemingly insurmountable odds, and a treasure
trove of helpful, practical hints on overcoming the physical
and psychological traps that ensnare so many weight loss
hopefuls. If you are about to embark on your own battle
against being overweight, I strongly recommend you first
fuel up on the immense wisdom contained within the pages of A Life Unburdened. ❂

BOOK REVIEW
A Life Unburdened By Richard Morris
Reviewed by Anthony Colpo
Unlike most of the overhyped and largely
useless diet books sitting on book store
shelves, A Life Unburdened by Richard
Morris combines a wealth of practical Anthony Colpo
weight loss information with a deeply
moving and highly inspiring personal story.
If you’re wondering why you should listen to yet another commentator on the fat loss issue, keep in mind that
Richard Morris is not your typical fat loss ‘expert.’ He’s not
some highly-decorated researcher who can talk for hours
on the intricacies of cellular metabolism, but who nonetheless remains utterly clueless about how to rid himself of
the highly-decorated gut hanging over his trouser belt. Nor
is he yet another self-proclaimed ‘guru’ who has employed
clever PR to achieve fame and fortune despite looking like
he himself could desperately do with some serious fat loss
advice!
Morris began his successful transition as a lethargic and
depressed behemoth weighing in at over 400 pounds, for
whom the mere act of getting out of bed each morning represented a physically Herculean task. A former high school
jock, years of poor nutrition and sedentary working life
had ballooned Morris into a frighteningly unfit individual,
one whose joints ached unbearably and whose lungs gasped
for air even during simple, routine activities like walking
short distances and climbing stairs. Suffering a continual
string of ailments, constant lethargy, and an
ever-present sense of shame and
embarrassment that led him to
don sweaters on warm days

in a vain attempt to hide his mounds of flab, the youthful
athleticism of Morris’s high school and college years seemed
galaxies away, gone forever.
A Life Unburdened is the story of how Morris transformed himself from a physical and emotional wreck, one
who was truly convinced that his days were numbered, to a
svelte and physically fit 260 pound individual. After losing
the best part of 200 pounds, Morris rediscovered, not just
the ecstatic delight of reclaiming his health and fitness, but
a whole lot more. Morris’s entire life underwent a striking
transformation; his ailing marriage blossomed back to life,
his family drew closer together, and his relationship with
food, such a fundamental part of all our lives, turned from
one of fear and frustration to one of deep satisfaction and
enjoyment.
What was Morris’s secret? What was the revelation that
allowed him, after years of failure, to finally conquer his
extreme obesity? What was it that succeeded where vegetarianism, low-fat dieting, Weight Watchers, Slimfast
shakes and the Atkins Diet had failed? Morris’s secret was
real food, the kind that kept his grandparents going strong
well into their old age. The kind that comes from rangefed animals and from nutrient-rich soils. The kind that has
not been heavily processed, fat-reduced, irradiated, refined,
ultra-heat treated, and stripped of its nutritive value before
being ‘enhanced’ with a token handful of synthetic vitamins and minerals.
Morris discovered that, contrary to the pragmatic bleating of modern-day dietitians, some foods were indeed bad.
