I want to say a big THANK YOU! to all those who came to the Journey to Health seminar. It was wonderful to see so many people come. Thank you to all those who helped, even traveling from afar. I want to give a big thanks to Vickie Anderson, who helped with the event, and speakers, Ellen and Dave  Schlichting for coming all the way from Chicago.  Special appreciation goes to Bob Prentice, Herbs4You Business Advisor, who moderated the event. He kept us on track and added a great dimension. The meal was delicious, thanks to Clarence Collins, our cook, and all the crew who helped him.  

Longevity Secrets III
In our February 16 newsletter we talked about the need to consume a large amount of antioxidants for health and longevity. Today, we will talk about a similar principle, which is to eat a mineral rich diet. This week, I want to go back to our series on longevity and health.

A Mineral Rich Diet
Mineral rich diets are universally found in all Blue Zones and is an absolute requirement to reach the age of 100 with health. The Blue Zones also have multiple sources rich in a wide spectrum of minerals. Here are the different sources of Nutritional minerals in the Blue Zones: Glacial milk, river silt, rock dust, wood ashes, kelp ashes, seaweed ashes, rice straw ashes, peat moss ashes, manure ashes.

Mineral are required by humans for building and maintaining structural components and enzymatic and biochemical co-factors that facilitate the physiological workings of the human cell, tissue, organ, systems and body - nothing in the body can function without mineral co-factors. On the average there are ten deficiency diseases that can occur in the absence of each essential mineral, others like calcium can produce as many as 147 different diseases when the body is deficient.  

On the other hand, plants only need a few minerals to grow. Therefore, just by eating plants, it does not ensure that we are getting the necessary minerals our health needs. It depends on the soil. In the Blue Zones, the people regularly and carefully composted their soil with kitchen wastes, wood and other ashes, river silt, and more. This ensured plants that were full of vital nutrients. Among all the Blue Zones, wood ashes were universally used to enrich their soil.  

There are different types of minerals.

  • Metallic minerals include egg shell, oyster shell, calcium carbonate, limestone, coral calcium dolomite, bentonite, inorganic mineral salts, sea water, mineral oxides, clay, rock flour, and various antacids. Typically, they are found in tablets and powders. Metallic minerals, are only 8-12% biologically available to humans, after 35-40 years of age, this plummets to 3-5%. 
  • Chelated minerals are minerals in which an amino acid, protein, or enzyme is wrapped around the mineral molecule which enhances the bioavailability of the metallic mineral. Chelated minerals are 40-60% bioavailable.
  • Colloidal minerals refers to a substance that exists as ultra fine particles that are suspended in a medium of different matter. Inorganic colloid cannot penetrate the intestinal wall to enter the blood stream. In the presence of amino acids, a small percentage of the inorganic colloids form chelated minerals and organic colloids which are able to be dialyzed throughout the mucus membranes of the intestinal walls into the blood stream. This mineral state is known as "crystalloid"  Crystalloids or organic colloids readily pass through cell walls, while inorganic colloids are "too large".
For us to live long and healthy, we must eat a mineral rich diet. In order to do this, we will need to grow most, if not, all of our produce in mineral rich soil, making sure to add wood ash to it.  For most of us, this just isn't possible. The great thing is that in America, there are wonderful products available that will provide us with these essential minerals and Juice Plus is one of the best.

NeuroCranial Restructuring (NCR) permanently corrects damage to the brain caused by life's traumatic events be it birth trauma, infections, illnesses, accidents, falls, work injuries, medical procedures, surgeries, severe emotional trauma and biochemical damage caused by drugs.  NCR  is the newest and most powerful therapy in physical medicine. NCR is a cumulative manipulation process involving controlled release of the body's connective tissue and meningeal tensions-resulting from traumas-to unwind the body and its bony structures and return it to its original and optimal design. NCR utilizes careful analysis of the body's patterns of balance to determine the precise areas of the skull needing to be unlocked during each day's treatment. More information may be found online at:

Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC) is real and immediate posture correction. One of the first things to note is that the body will stay upright by itself without significant muscular effort. ABC unwinds twisted and locked frames, giving pain relief and/or elimination of pain. As a result, a person will breathe deeper and fuller. This is the best type of care when no other profession has been able to help. Much information and videos are available on the website:

Body Stress Release is coming April 12-19!

Body Stress Release (BSR) is a non-therapeutic, complementary health profession which assists the body to release stored tension which becomes “locked” into the physical structure when the body fails to adapt to stress. These stresses may be mechanical, chemical or mental/emotional. Through BSR,  the body’s ability to maintain and heal itself is enhanced. When the body is subjected to stress overload, instead of the stress being dissipated out of the system, it becomes “locked” into the body. This “body stress” manifests as lines of tension at specific points, which may bring about postural distortions, pain, stiffness, or numbness. The impact on the nervous system disturbs the body’s lines of communication, thereby undermining efficiency of function. Read more...

The cost is $65 per session. Usually three sessions per person are recommended. Please let Amy know if you are interested or need more information.

For more information about BSR's ability to assist the body in releasing stored tension, visit the Herbs4You website.

  Time to lose those extra pounds!

A small pumpkin-shaped fruit, that aids in weight loss by helping to block fat, and suppress your appetite. The HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbs: citrate lyases. Usually carbs or sugars that are not used immediately or stored in other forms are converted into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat making process is halted and the prduction of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decrease, causing your body to burn fat and lose weight.
