Cooking With Qi & Conquering Any Disease

Like so many of us, I’ve been watching my nutrition and eating healthfully for years, buying only organic food and the very freshest ingredients possible. Also years ago, I cut out those foods that are known to damage our systems. I thought I was doing well until I heard about Qigong Master Jeff Primack and his food based healing system.

Now, I find that I return to his books over and over again. Conquering Any Disease: The Ultimate High-Phytochemical Food Healing System, and Cooking With QI: The Ultimate High-Phytochemical Cookbook, are a must have addition to any serious health-foodie’s kitchen. There are clearly written explanations for what foods to eat to reverse a number of ailments, such as: heart-disease, diabetes, cancer,obesity, digestive problems, migraines, asthma, arthritis, osteoporosis, hormone decline, and more.

I used to think that just being careful with my diet was enough. But as Jeff Primack notes, “Just eating healthy is not enough. The real secret lies in using “specific foods for specific diseases”. For example, kiwi is quick to help reverse Asthma, which we’ve seen hundreds of our students reverse within 1 week of following the Asthma food protocol. Asthma is a completely unnecessary disease and is nutritionally caused. Other diseases like Arthritis & Diabetes are also frequently reversed with common foods. This information can dramatically change medicine as we know it.”

You don’t have to be sick to start using these books. One of the best parts of this regimen of mindful eating is that by following these recommendations, you can prevent many of the illnesses from ever occuring. But if you are ill already in some way, then these books are really worth checking out.

What Is Natto & How Do I Eat It?

Natto is a traditional Japanese food. It’s fermented soybeans that are rich in vegetable protein. Typically eaten with rice, natto has a mild cheese-like flavor and can be an acquired taste. It has a sort of sticky paste on its surface and once it is stirred, the paste increases its volume becoming even stickier. You will find that the paste pulls apart in such a way that resembles a web. This is another characteristic that sometimes turns people off. Still, the benefits make it worth exploring, and according to The New York Times, it’s catching on. If you’re the adventurous type or enjoy uncommon textures in your food, definitely try Natto! You can even make it yourself (video) if you want.

Is There an ‘All Natural’ Alternative to Antibiotics? by Susun Weed

There are good reasons to use antibiotic drugs. That said, most physicians and healthcare professionals agree that they are often overused. The overuse of antibiotics has created “superbugs” that are immune to the most common antibiotics. But on a more personal level, antibiotics can wreak havoc on your own immune system and gastrointestinal tract. The good news is that there is an all-natural alternative to antibiotics that I’ve found to be very effective.

The Booming Market for Meat Alternatives

| by Cheryl Shainmark

White Castle and Fat Burger now feature Impossible Burgers, Del Taco has Beyond Meat on the menu, and Burger King is about to roll out a Beyond Meat Whopper. Hard Rock Cafes in Europe carry a veggie burger now, (though you’d have to skip the cheese to make it a vegan meal), and they expect to offer it in their US locations next year. As Phil Shainmark, our columnist for The Unlikely Vegan noted recently, “It’s quite possibly the best time to be a Vegan. There are so many amazing choices and places to go.” Even if you’re not a vegan or a fast food fan, the variety of meat alternatives is great news as many grocery stores and regular restaurants have also added plant based options to meet growing customer demand. According to Market Insider, the $14 billion dollar meat alternative industry is expected to grow to $140 billion over the next decade.
