Many ‘gurus’ are surfing on the waves of this hype, and are exaggerating all the good things, do hardly or not at all mention the bad things and leave out essential information. All this, to make it easier to sell their products and get an audience for their conventions and books. Hypes create a distorted reality.

Like David Wolfe. One of his first books, (not sure about that) is called “Nature’s First Law: The Raw-Food Diet”

This book is a 99% copy of an existing, now out of print book. It’s copied literally (only changing some phrases here and there) from the original Iranian´╗┐ book “Raw Food Eating” by Arshavir Ter Hovannessian (the actual Godfather of Raw Foodism) from the 60s. If you Google on it you’ll find the full story, complete with full pages to compare. Better even, try to find the actual book – it is available for free at some sites.

David Wolfe is singing the praise of the Chaga mushroom everywhere, and selling several Chaga products on his Longevity website. So far, nothing wrong.

But several of these products are not even extracts (so cannot be digested by humans – bio-availability is zero) but are also cultivated Chaga, which is a completely different product. And this fact is left out on the shopping page – they call it ‘Organic Chaga’.

I call that deception.

In particular mushroom products are unreliable in general. Because it is just worthless, indigestible powder. Have a look at this blog for some background on extraction facts: http://supplement-facts.org/2012-6.php

My advice: do not take everything you read at face value and do your own research as well.

It is clear that Chinese medicine is the the most natural and potent medicine around (as well as the oldest). Since most of these are not readily available, one must take advantage of what IS available. Superfoods such as garlic (my #1 go to medicine), garlic, broccoli/cauliflower, pineapple, honey, turmeric, chia seeds, cayenne pepper, etc. are readily available in almost any country, and each of these superfoods have properties are through the roof.

Everyone I know around me, including myself, have been suffering from strange allergy/head cold symptoms for the past 2 weeks (seems to be something in the air; I blame chemtrail spraying, but that is a completely different topic). I stay ahead of the game by consuming crushed garlic, like a pill (no chewing), with water, coffee or juice. Stay away from pills and pharmaceuticals, and stick Gods pharmacy, natural foods and herbs!

I do know taking astragalus tincture will gradually reduce scarring and leave just a thin line where it was. If it does that on the outside of your skin just imagine how effective it must be on the inside.

Tinctures are much better than pills because the whole root is used and you don’t have fillers, coatings etc.

Thanks!

Fruit has good stuff in, but it’s just easier than veg because it tastes nicer. I’ve heard that sugars can upset your hormone balance. Veg and herbs are superior for that reason and probably more besides. But I do believe that smaller portions of fruit have their place in a healthy diet. That being said, I do not practice what I preach and I’ve just ate a McDonald’s, I mainly drink black (British ‘traditional’) tea with a lot of milk and I used to never eat much fruit or veg. Guess what, I’m 22 and suffering from (albeit mild) chronic health issues with my prostate.
