While there is not one single method for mixing clay and water to make pastes, liquid clay, etc,, our experience suggests the following methods:

The ratio for making a Cleansing Clay Mask is 1 part dry clay to 3 parts water. This is also referred to as hydrated clay. For example, add 1 1/2 cups of water to 1/2 cup of Clay Vitality from goDesana. Use a glass, ceramic or food grade plastic container with a non-metal lid, air tight lid. Cover and shake vigorously for 1 minute or until all lumps are gone. Open the cover and allow it to breathe for 10-15 minutes until fully hydrated. Then cover and keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight.

For larger batches:

Using a plastic or glass bowl, add 1 cup of dry clay to 3 cups of water. Next, use an electric mixer to mix the clay and water until smooth. Use care as it will splatter. Let the clay set for 1 hour lightly covered, allowing the clay to breathe. Repeat the mixing process if necessary until the clay is smooth and creamy and reaches the desired consistency. Next put the clay into a glass, ceramic or food grade plastic container with a plastic lid. Do not leave the beaters in the clay when the mixer is not in use and wash the clay off immediately. Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight. The end product will be a creamy, smooth, pudding-like substance. By holding the container in one hand and tapping it with the other hand, one should be able to feel a “bounce” to the clay. The consistency can be easily adjusted by adding more powdered clay or water until personal preference is achieved.

Preparing Clay Vitality from goDesanafor a liquid consistency: The ratio is 1 part dry clay to 8 parts water. For example, ¼ cup of Living Clay® Detox Clay Powder to 2 cups of water.

Suggested method:

In a glass jar or plastic bottle with a plastic cap add selected amounts of clay and water. Shake vigorously for 1 minute. Let it set for 15 minutes with the lid off to allow the clay to expand and breathe. Repeat the shaking process again. Some residue will remain in the bottom. The consistency can be easily adjusted by adding more powdered clay or water until personal preference is achieved. Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight.

 

Clay Vitality from goDesana uses: Clay Masks and Full Body Wraps increase circulation, exfoliate, deep cleanse, and remove

impurities and excess oil from the skin. Clay Baths both detox and stimulate the lymphatic system. Liquid Clay can be used for foot soaks.

Benefits and Uses of Rooibos Tea
Rooibos tea is the ideal drink for people with a busy lifestyle. It can be enjoyed in unlimited quantities throughout the

YUM-O ROOIBOS TEA

day. It is a great thirst quencher for athletes as iced tea, or mixed with fruit juice. For the diet conscious, who are experiencing the stress of a restricted diet, Rooibos is a soothing drink, without adding calories. Because of its lower tannin content, Rooibos is less bitter than regular tea and can be enjoyed without sugar.

Rooibos is not just for making drinks. It can also be used in baking and cooking. Rooibos can be used in any recipe. Just replace the liquid content in the recipe with ready made Rooibos tea. It may be used as base for soups, stews, marinades, and sauces. Rooibos is also a natural meat tenderizer.

Rooibos Tea for Mothers and Babies
Many desperate mothers have found that Rooibos tea relieves colic and stomach cramps in babies, when given in addition to their normal feeding. Some mothers have great faith in Rooibos tea to alleviate diaper rash. It has a soothing effect when applied to the affected area with every diaper change. Others believe it is useful in the treatment of certain skin irritations or eczema. Mothers will also tell you that this health drink relieves symptoms of allergies, hay fever, and asthma in babies and toddlers.

Japanese Research into Rooibos
Perhaps the highest testimony of the benefits of this pure and natural beverage comes from Japan, a society famous for its age-old devotion to the art of tea making. Here, Rooibos has been promoted as a healthy alternative to other cold and warm beverages.

Japanese scientist Matatoshi Nakano, has discovered that the effect of free radicals – a byproduct of normal cell function – in the process of aging and decline of the immune system is limited by the antioxidants in Rooibos. If the product is brewed/boiled for longer than 10 minutes, the antioxidant activity becomes much higher.

The Anti Aging Tea?
It has been found that Rooibos tea contains a substantial amount of a very special enzyme, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) which is a prime preventer of Free Radical Damage. SOD also has the capability of preventing fats from changing into harmful lipid peroxide. As Rooibos tea also contains natural antioxidants, which help to remove or neutralize these toxins, there is growing acceptance that Rooibos could assist in
countering the aging process and boost the immune system. Rooibos Tea is also rich in Quercetin, the flavonol that has beneficial effects on numerous ailments. It is well known for increasing capillary strength, which aids in circulation, prevents hemorrhaging, and protects against infections.

In the late 1920’s, Dr. Nortier, a well-known medical doctor and nature lover, discovered the Rooibos and began to promote its value. Since then, Rooibos Tea has gone from strength to strength and is currently being exported to several countries such as Germany, Switzerland, England, and even Japan, a country renowned for it’s almost sacred regard for the art of tea making.

Rooibos is a Tea of Purity
Rooibos contains no additives, preservatives or colorants. It is completely pure and natural and contains no caffeine.

Rooibos Tea contains little tannin, a substance that affects the metabolism by decreasing absorption of certain nutrients like iron and protein. Growing children and especially women require added iron, so the decreased tannin can play an important role in improving the iron level of the diet.

 Note: We make Rooibos Red Tea Concentrate from loose tea, and process through the Filtron Coffee Maker, liquid concentrate lasts up to a couple of months and takes hardly any storage room.

Ice Tea Recipe:

Sweet Ice Tea: Bring 1 1/2 qts pure water to a boil, add 3 Rooibos Tea Bags, 1/4 tsp conc. stevia (no aftertaste) , and simmer 15 minutes, pour over 1/2 gallon container filled with ice

Unsweetened Rooibos Ice Tea, same as above without stevia.

Natural Sweet Solution for dry mouth symptoms like cracking tongue or mouth sores

Sweet and Simple Solution For Dry Mouth? Mouth Sores? Cracking Tongue?

Saliva is produced by our salivary glands and when they are clogged or not working properly, our saliva can be too acidic, resulting in dry mouth and sometimes mouth sores.

Saliva is alkaline. A good reason to be concerned about dry mouth is that when we chew our food, our saliva (which should carry a high pH), works in tandem with our teeth to break down or pre-digest our food before it goes into out stomach.

Antagonists of dry mouth may be smoking, or some medications, even allergy and antihistamines, plus sugary acidic drinks like soda, and of course acidic drinks like coffee and alcohol. We are mostly made of water and should really focus on keeping our water environment clean and healthy.

Why we should drink clean pure water ? Our body is made up of mostly water, at birth about 90%, as an adult we hover around 80% or more. If you think about stagnant water, it’s a clear picture of why we should drink clean, pure water everyday. We absorb nutrition from food and water, but today water is degraded and it is our individual responsibility to purify our drinking water for good health. Bottled water is not the answer for many reasons, and when you can purify up to a 1,000 gallons in a 4 stage $25 pitcher, or $100 countertop unit, why would you buy bottled water?

Home Page“>

While there may be a lot of different approaches to dry mouth, xylitol sweetened gum, mints, etc., offer a simple and natural solution to increase saliva flow naturally. You can now find many products made with xylitol over the counter at your local grocery, drug store, and of course big box stores, however most are corn based and made in China, so for the healthiest xylitol look for USA products who use domestic xylitol, made from birch trees. Basically, made in the U.S.A. to me, demonstrates a higher quality of xylitol at the same pricepoint.  Trident® Sugarless gum made with Xylitol are, Trident® fusion flavors, and Stride gum.
 
PURE Water

Hydration is Everything – Body Weight vs. Body Water

How much water should a person drink?  Take your body weight, divide by 2 and that tells you roughly how many quarts of water you are (each quart of water weighs about 2 pounds), example 100 pounds = 50 quarts. Then decide how much pure drinking water you should drink,  i.e., 8 glasses a day would be 2 quarts fresh water each day.  So if you are 150 pounds and drank 2 quarts of water a day, it would take 75 days to drink your body water, 3 quarts a day would take 50 days, ultimately having an impact on your level of hydration (cells), and water environment.

Note about Xylitol: In addition to gum, mints, etc., I like xylitol for some food preparation, especially (looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, and acts like sugar) for baking, sauces, and making berry jams. For a daily beverage sweetener I prefer concentrated stevia for making healthy drinks at home like lemonade, red tea, juice from concentrate, etc.

Non GMO Shopping Guide Plus Resources

 

 

Non GMO ShoppingBuy Non-GMO

You can eliminate GMOs from your diet and combine your purchasing power with that of other health-conscious consumers. 

$pend your food dollars on healthy non-GMO brands! Buying non-GMO not only impacts your own and your family’s health concerns, it also influences the buying decisions of food manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Food manufacturers worldwide have switched to non-GM ingredients in response to consumers demanding they make a change or lose customers. See download below. 

From the Institute for Responsible Technology:
  
TIPS FOR AVOIDING GMOs
  

Tip #1: Buy Organic 

Certified organic products cannot intentionally include any GMO ingredients. Buy products labeled “100% organic,” “organic,” or “made with organic ingredients.” You can be doubly sure if the product also has a Non-GMO Project Verified Seal. Read more about organic standards…

Tip #2:  

Look for Non-GMO Project Seals  

Products that carry the Non-GMO Project Seal are independently verified to be in compliance with North America’s only third party standard for GMO avoidance, including testing of at-risk ingredients. The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to providing consumers with clearly labeled and independently verified non-GMO choices. Look for dairy products labeled “No rBGH or rBST,” or “artificial hormone-free.”


Tip #3:  Avoid at-risk ingredients
 

If it’s not labeled organic or verified non-GMO: Avoid products made with ingredients that might be derived from GMOs (see list). The eight GM food crops are Corn, Soybeans, Canola, Cottonseed, Sugar Beets, Hawaiian Papaya (most) and a small amount of Zucchini and Yellow Squash.

  

From Kellogg’s: Organic Consumers Association and allies warned Kellogg’s, if they used sugar from genetically engineered sugar beets in their foods, they would face a consumer boycott. Kellogg’s responded, claiming that, even though they don’t use genetically engineered ingredients in Europe, in the U.S., “consumer concerns about the usage of biotech ingredients in food production are low.”  

From Crystal Sugar: David Berg, President of Crystal Sugar, the nation’s largest sugar beet processor, told the New York Times he thought customer acceptance of GE sugar was “a big nonevent.” 

 
Maraline’s Note:  “Cow dairy is extremely high in lactic acid. Goat dairy has much less lactic acid if you’ve gotaa have your cheese, and almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, etc are great milk alternatives:)

Local Sources

There is a growing movement for buying local and supporting local farmers. Resources to find organic and locally grown foods can be found using the links below:

Coconut Milk IceCream

Dairy Products may be from cows injected with GM bovine growth hormone. Look for labels stating No rBGH, rBST, or artificial hormones. OR Buy Organic Milk from reputable grass fed farm (some lower cost organic milk is from grain fed cows, depleting the essential vitamins and minerals). 

Dangers of GMO Sugar Beets

Sugar If a non-organic product made in North American lists “sugar” as an ingredient (and NOT pure cane sugar), then it is almost certainly a combination of sugar from both sugar cane and GM sugar beets.

Thimerosal (mercury) in Flu Shots & Vaccines is out of hand.

Any reasonable person would question why it is, that in 2010, our children are required to receive (count them) 24 mandatory vaccinations, when just one generation ago, 10 vaccinations was the requirement. I  personally compared my older children with my 14 year old’s records, then put those records against the number of injections today’s babies are recommended, and there is absolutely no way the increase can be justified. Join my FB, and see how a Vet, doctor for animals, minimizes vaccines for the family pets because he sees them as harmful, yet for our children the number of injections has compounded.

Another point of contention is that not only do today’s children receive many more vaccinations, Thimerosal (mercury) is still present at staggering amounts (the amount the FDA determines safe for a 275 lb man). So even after all the controversy and court cases, children especially, are given injections (vaccines and flu shots) which are frequently doubled up or even tripled.  Why?

Why McDonalds Burgers Have Not Decomposed since 1989 – believe it!

See Video Below "Big Macs Looking Great, Purchased in the 1980's" - BELEIVE IT!

As another data point to our ongoing McDonald’s Burger series (and don’t think for a minute this is ONLY about McDonald’s or just Big Mac’s and Happy Meals), you’ll be surprised to learn at least one guy has been collecting McDonald’s burgers since the 1980’s, AND STILL HAS THEM!

Here is a great vid plus an excerpt from Natural News, they posted the original news story years ago on the McDonald’s Burgers bought in the 1980’s – watch the vid.

From Natural News….No normal animal will perceive a McDonald’s hamburger bun as food, and as it turns out, neither will bacteria or fungi. To their senses, it’s just not edible stuff. That’s why these bionic burger buns just won’t decompose.

Which brings me to my final point about this whole laughable distraction: There is only one species on planet Earth that’s stupid enough to think a McDonald’s hamburger is food. This species is suffering from skyrocketing rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, dementia and obesity. This species claims to be the most intelligent species on the planet, and yet it behaves in such a moronic way that it feeds its own children poisonous chemicals and such atrocious non-foods that even fungi won’t eat it (and fungi will eat cow manure, just FYI).

U.S. foods that are illegal in Europe, for health reasons!

Excerpt from article below….”Numerous studies have shown the link between behavioral problems in children and the laundry list of most common food colorings, including Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Orange B, Red 3 and Yellow 6.”

Did you know that in the U.S., land of plenty and pretty, that our bakers prefer bleached flour,  but not for health because flour is bleached using food additives (chemicals) including chlorine, bromates and peroxides? No? Well read on that’s just one little tidbit…wait until you read about macaroni and cheese! The following article was copied directly from nakedlaw.com

BIG PS: Here’s what Pillsbury says about their bleaching process – nothing!:

Pillsbury BEST® Flour
Frequently Asked Questions

What is bleached flour?
It is a natural whitening process important for obtaining high quality baked products. Bleaching agents are added to obtain the same effect on flour as natural aging only with faster results. The process does not affect the nutritional value of the flour. (Really? Then explain the “bleaching agents” and the “process”  on FAQ’s please.)

It’s important to note that our body requires certain levels of nutrition, when we believe we are ingesting nutrition, and we are not because of chemicals, additives, and processing (synthetic food), then there are consequences. The consequences are (child or adult) deficiencies and deficiencies cause our body to react with  symptoms, those symptoms become chronic, and chronic symptoms worsen to a diagnosis or dis-ease.  Maraline

Article: 5 Foods Americans Love That Are Banned in Europe

October 5, 2010 Consumer protection, Government, Healthcare

While it’s getting easier to tell what’s really in those packages on the supermarket shelves — if you care to read the label — those ingredients can still be pretty confusing. Here in the US, we chow down on foods that are actually illegal in the European Union and many other countries.

While public outcry over food almost always revolves around health, politics plays a big role when it comes to deciding whether to ban a food.

Milk, Cheese and Ice Cream

Actually, Europeans love dairy products and the EU countries together are the number one dairy producers in the world. Back in 1999, the EU banned milk and dairy products from cows treated with synthetic growth hormones, which are also banned in Japan, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

Since 1993, the Food and Drug Administration has maintained that the hormones, which make cows produce more milk, pose no threat to humans. The FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institute of Health all agree that they can’t tell the difference between milk from treated and untreated cattle.

However, advocates, including some physicians, say the effects of bovine growth (more…)

McDonald’s Everlasting Mickey D’s Happy Meal, 6 months old and still looks Happy!

As a follow-up to our 14-year-old hamburger from McDonalds (this blog, photos, and literally unchanged in 14 years), I couldn’t resist this quick upbeat  follow-up demo video.

Becki A sent this in from ND, and I know there are others, because according to the people who have done the experiment ANYONE CAN DO THIS. Simply buy an unadorned burger (fries if you like, they also seem to have a very long life span), then either lose it in your car for months like one guy did, or stage it on a white china plate like Sally Davies and take photos each day. Add a little music and you have yourself a YouTube vid:) Hey, the Morning Show or another show may feature you, and who knows, McDonald’s may answer!

Sally Davies bought a McDonald’s Happy Meal on April 26, 2010. She placed it on her coffee table, uncovered, and took photos every day for six months. This video shows the results, which are quite scary.  McDonald’s response posted below video.

Update GMO Salmon – Feds say GM Salmon won’t be labeled.

10/10/10 Update via Steve Dom with info from Dr. Douglass:

Feds say GM salmon won’t be labeled  

The feds are getting closer to approving genetically modified frankenfish for your dinner table… and if they give the OK, they don’t even want you to know when you’re eating one. Consumer groups are calling for labels to identify the mutant salmon in the supermarket… but the FDA says you can take your labels and stick ’em.

That’s right — these hypocrites who are such sticklers for warning labels when it comes to all-natural products now claim that these new salmon are no different from any other salmon, so they don’t need labels.
