Water is an integral part of our lives. We cook with it, clean with it, bathe in it and – most importantly – drink it.

A common misconception is that tap water treated by your municipality has already been filtered and therefore doesn’t have any room to improve. On the contrary, tap water typically has plenty of room for improvement. If you want you, your family and your pets to drink water that is healthful and meets the highest standards of quality, it’s time to consider putting your water through additional filtration.

Multipure has the VERY

  Best Water Filter Systems

Super Green Foods and Chocolates

Bright Earth Flash Sale 33% off You are worth celebrating and we are taking this moment to say thanks with a special checkout code “THANKYOU2018“. It is valid until Monday 9 P.M. PST

Superfoods are NOT a new idea. They include some of the oldest living plants on the planet.  They have been used for thousands of years by indigenous people all over the world. Their pharmacological attributes have long been revered by ancient civilizations–and only some of us are beginning to experience the magic and medicine held within them.

I began taking Bright Earth Chlorella  when I found out how very good they are for gum health when I had a gum graft about 10 years ago.

Superfoods are getting the attention of the medical community as their health benefits continue to be proven by research. More and more people are experiencing the extraordinary benefits of these highly specialized, delicious, organic, whole foods. Superfoods are an excellent way to give your body very high quality, high density nutrition, for building a strong foundation for a healthy immune system. They are naturally loaded with micronutrients–which continue to be diminished by our modern farming techniques: poor water quality, soil depletion, chemicals, and GMO contamination.

Bright Earth Products have a variety of super fun raw superfoods to eat and cook with. I trust the company because they provide the very best available.  They carry Himalayan Pink Crystal sea salt, coconut sugar, smoothie mixes and body care products.

Who wouldn’t love delicious  superfood snacks!  Treat yourself!

Natural Aspirin Tea – Natural Healing Tea

Natural Aspirin Teatwig tea Choice

1 ¾ cup filtered water
1 bag Twig Tea bag
½ Umeboshi plum or ½ teaspoon plum paste
1 tablespoon Kuzu
2 drops good quality Tamari

Bring the water to a boil in a small stainless steel pot. Turn off the heat and add the tea bag to sumeboshiteep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag. Put the umeboshi in the pot and stir until dissolved. Place the kuzu into a drinking cup with mix 2 tablespoons cool water.  Slowly stir the kuzu and water in the pot and watch it thicken. Pour the thickened tea back into the drinking cup. Add the tamari drops and drink.

This tea is excellent to help relieve fatigue and when you feel like you might be getting a cold and if you already got the cold.

These ingredients are stables in my kitchen and have been for decades. In fact I always take umeboshi  and twig tea bags with me on over night trips.  I can always get some hot water kudzuto steep the tea bag.  And either add a little umeboshi into the tea or right in my mouth if the tea and umeboshi are not in the same place.

Most natural health food stores carry all of the above ingredients. Or order items from Gold Mine Natural Foods.
