Spring Update
Journey of Health  
Sun Ray Greetings!

Spring is here and summer will be here before you know it. Are you ready for sunshine, fresh air, vacations and relaxation? It amazes me that so many people will spend thousands of dollars on vacations eat the worst foods while vacationing but very little on their health year round. 

Do you believe your body deserves the highest quality organic foods, produce and supplementation? Do you believe you can grow old disease free and full of vitality? Are you willing to take responsibility for what you put into your mouth? You can make changes and we want to help you. Stop in today and ask us how.
You Are What You Eat
Food Matters
We were so honored to have James Colquhoun &
Laurentine ten Bosch in our store on Monday promoting this amazing DVD called: FOODMATTERS. This is an amazing documentary that all of North America needs to see. I was fortunate to get to talk to Laurentine and learn about the making of this film. Cody and I loved this film so much and the message we want to offer a viewing of this film at our potluck Wednesday, April 1, 2009. We will have DVD's to sell by next week. You can also pay and view the film online. But why not come to the potluck and view it for free?

'Food Matters' is a hard hitting, fast paced look at our current state of health. Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and every day maladies. Patching up an over-toxic and over-indulgent population with a host of toxic therapies and nutrient sparse foods is definitely not helping the situation.

Join the world's leading authorities on nutrition and natural healing as they uncover the true cause of disease.

Find out what works, what doesn't, and what's killing you.

Becoming informed about the choices you have for you and your family's health could save your life.

FOODMATTERS sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide "Sickness Industry," and exposes a growing body of scientific evidence proving that nutritional therapy can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than most conventional medical treatments.
Abigail Opal Dahl

AbbyOur little bundle of joy is growing so fast.
I cant believe she is already 4 months old! She is now teething and trying to set up. She is such a good little girl. She sleeps from 8-10 hours a night and is a very happy little baby.
My biggest challenge is comforting her while she is teething. I have tried the cold washcloth, carrot and celery stick. A little clove and thieves oil is helping her some. So if any of you have some tips please pass them on. I would greatly appreciate it!

Stop in and come and see little Abby. She is so much fun and very therapeutic to hold. She loves for you to hold her and tell her how cute and pretty she is. We feel so blessed.
Health Benefits of Kale
Kale is king. Along with broccoli, it is one of the nutrition stand-outs among vegetables. It fights fat through its ability to mingle in a variety of roles -- in side dishes, combined in main dishes, or in salads.
For a green, kale is unusually high in fiber. This helps create the bulk you need to fill you up and to keep you full for a good amount of time. Kale is also an excellent source of nutrients, especially vitamin A and calcium. With a combination of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, kale is a dieter's dream food.

Health Benefits of Kale

Though greens in general are nutritious foods, kale stands a head above the rest. Not only is it one of your best sources of beta-carotene, one of the antioxidants believed by many nutrition experts to be a major player in the battle against cancer, heart disease, and certain age-related chronic diseases, it also provides other important nutrients.

In addition to beta-carotene, kale posses other important carotenoids: lutein and zeaxathin. These carotenoids help keep UV rays from damaging the eyes and causing cataracts.
According to recent research results, kale is an incredible source of well-absorbed calcium, which is one of the many factors that may help prevent osteoporosis. It also provides decent amounts of vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B6, manganese, and potassium.

The manganese in kale helps your body's own antioxidant defense system, superoxide dismutase, protecting you from damaging free radicals. Its folate and B6 team up to keep homocysteine levels down, which may help prevent heart disease, dementia, and osteoporosis bone fractures.
