FAVORITE WEB LINKS

HEALTH

Bernard Jensen website – Excellent website with tools and information for cleansing, detoxification, and learning iris reading. Iridology (iris reading) is an excellent way to read tissue health, along with degenerative processes.
Cancer Cure Foundation

Cleanse.Net
– Dr. Richard Anderson’s website interface to his cleansing programs. A lot of well researched articles and facts about how necessary good digestive health is to overall health. I give it five stars*****

Body Ecology Diet – Excellent website offering a perspective of healing occurring from the guts first. Donna studied Macrobiotics, like Craig, and took it further than the dogma. Her perspectives are unique, fresh, and true. We must have a sound intestinal flora and digestive capacity to be healthy and energetic. The site offers help, classes, products, and more.

Weston Price
– Informative website with great information, challenging the “diet dictocrats” of our modern food systems. Traditional diet therapy is the focus and personal experience.

Thomas Cowan’s MD – Cancer, healing, medical information, holistic referral

The Naive Vegetarian - Excellent information de-bunking the myths about what humans think they need, versus what we actually thrive on.  Very science based, excellent.

Standard Process supplement descriptions - for clients to look up what they are taking

Mediherb herbal supplement descriptions - for clients to look up these herbs

Great Taste No Pain – Go to this website for digestive relief, sometimes within 24 hours.  This is food combining, and other methods I have found to be very valuable.

Zapper Barney (for cancer, HIV, and other diseases) - A website devoted to promoting useful information about degenerative disease. Products such as parasite zappers, magnetic pulsers, books and more are available.  Bob Beck’s Protocols for Cancer and more - This work is based on mild blood electrification, magnetic pulsing, colloidal silver, and ozonated water. These are all easy and cheap methods to raise health and help our bodies repair. This is not a cancer cure (must say this for the FDA).

HEALTH PRODUCTS

Cancer Salves – Excellent information about the use of topicals to draw out tumors and other stuff like lipomas.

Mt. Capra Goat milk whey - excellent for stomach troubles and mineral source FROM FOOD, not isolates

Traditional Medicinals teas – information site, they are available in health food stores

Flora’s encyclopedia – good site with hard science monographs from Germany

HERB WEBSITES – see flora above

Planetary Herbs – good site for those who want to learn or use a skilled herbalist besides myself

Plant finder – use this to look up plants to identify

SPIRITUAL TEACHERS & TEACHINGS

Pacific Tao – Qigong and Tai Chi teachings on DVD by Mantak Chia. Author of the “Multi-Orgasmic Man.”

Adyashanti
– The website for Open gate sangha, a group that supports the teaching of Adyashanti. Events, books, tapes, and support for those on a spiritual path can be found here.

Macrobiotics – Excellent “new school” macrobiotic website full of less dogmatic teachings than in the past. The newer generation of macro teachers offer much more unbiased and quality information.

SUSTAINABILITY

Green Eating – this site is a Bay Area based network to help us find resources.

Sustainable Nutrition
– Website devoted to empowering Santa Cruz and Bay Area residents that lists classes, food buying groups, and online/local support groups. This is a real people group helping real people.

Foundation of Sustainable Living
– A group dedicated to the ongoing survival of community and the future. As the site builds, many areas to find information, network with like-minded people, and build community will be available. Examples are sustainable foods to grow, sustainable building materials, and more.

Sustainable Agricultural Resource Center – An excellent website dedicated to supporting ourselves through growing food. The site offers links, contacts, and events throughout the Central California coast.

CHARTS & HEALTH DATA

Acid and Alkaline chart – links to be posted

USDA National Nutrient Database – Shows the amount of nutrients in any given food. Keep in mind that the numbers can vary as much as 100-1000 times higher for properly grown foods. These amounts are only for reference.

Doctor Duke Food Database - When a food is inputted into this database, a biochemical profile will be displayed. Excellent tool to check out your healing foods (and not so good ones!)

Unified Community Information – A wonderful resource for health, nutrition, herbal, and sustainable living. One can search for any topic, scan for links to reliable websites, or browse through interesting information.

 The Color Test – This is a great check-in (and fun) for one’s hand-eye coordination.  I have heard it is a good test for mental functions.


RECOMMENDED READING
 (categorized books by theme)

General (highly recommended)

Nourishing Traditions – Sally Fallon

This is the book for those who want recipes, really good stories, excellent data about the downfalls of “the politically correct corporate food system.”

Healing With Whole Foods – Paul Pitchford

This is the subtle and energetic counterpart to the book above.  If anyone has only two books on cooking and nutrition, these are my two recommends.  Except for the raw foodists would not find them as helpful.  This book has great data and studies, the energetic approach to food and healing, and decent recipes, though they are not the reason I am recommending the book.

Weight Loss

The Zone – Barry Sears

Easy to understand ways to keep the carbohydrates under control, and why.  This approach has been thoroughly investigated and holds a lot of credibility in my practice.

Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution – Robert Atkins

Once a controversial approach, high fat and protein, a lot of vegetables, and very low carbohydrate intake makes this approach a little more difficult than the Zone.  But it is excellent for those with diabetic complications, insulin resistance, syndrome x, and poor carbohydrate handling that comes with difficult weight loss.

Any book by Bernard Jensen

Athletic performance

The Zone – see above

Nutrition Almanac – Dunne (5th edition)

Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine – Murray/Pizzorno

Great resource with good data and recommendations for top performance.

From Soil to Supplement – Royal Lee

One of the landmark books on Nutrition.  Only available through Selene River Press or IFNH.   Excellent information on all aspects of diet, and if one is willing to read between the lines, great ideas about athletic performance.

Adrenal Fatigue – J. Wilson

Important book about “The General Adaptation Syndrome.”  This occurs as an adaptation to stress and overwork/overexercising.  Good tips to nurture these important organs, of which we cannot be motivated to exercise and do anything.

Deep Nutrition – Kate Shanahan MD

This book landed in my lap, literally from a client.  It has the best explanation of cellulite, blood sugar, bad fats versus good fats and what they do, gut flora, and how bad the medical system is.  Highly recommended.
