Healthy Food Healthy Life w/Jamie Oliver

“In the next 18 minutes when I do our chat, four Americans that are alive will be dead from the food that they eat.”

Jamie Oliver delivered that powerful opening line at this year’s TED conference. But who’s Jamie and why should you listen to him?

jamieoliver2Jamie cares. He cares about the health of his children, and your children. He cares about the health of this nation, and all nations. He cares about making a difference in the epic fight against obesity and diet-related disease.

And Jamie’s no ordinary bloke. He’s an accomplished international chef. But more importantly, he’s a charismatic, honest, and impassioned leader at the helm of a global movement to revolutionize food and health.

Here’s Jamie in his own words – delivering the most important message on healthy food and life, ever.

There is much to learn from Jamie’s insights and opinions. Here are the bits I believe to be the most profound, organized by theme. Please share your favorites in the comments below.
Unhealthy Truths:

* “Your child will live a life 10 years younger than you because of the landscape of food that we’ve built around them.”
* “Fact: diet related disease is the biggest killer in the United States right now, here today.”
* Obesity costs the United States 10% of its healthcare bills = $150 billion/year; in 10 years this cost will double = $300 billion/year

The Health Revolution:

* “There needs to be a new standard of fresh, proper food for your children.”
* “We’ve got to start teaching our kids about food in school, period.”
* “Under the circumstances, it’s profoundly important that every single American child leave school knowing how to cook 10 recipes that will save their lives.”

Healthy Responsibilities:

* “The big brands, the food brands, need to put food education at the heart of their businesses.”
* “You can care and be commercial. Absolutely.”

Healthy Hope & Inspiration:

* “I profoundly believe that the power of food has a primal place in our homes that binds us to the best bits of life.”
* “I believe, truly, actually, that if change can be made in this country beautiful things will happen around the world. If America does it I believe other people will follow. It’s incredibly important.”

Jamie’s Wish & Your Call-to-Action:

Jamie concludes his talk with his wish…

“My wish is for you to help a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, to inspire families to cook again, and to empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

Let’s all help Jamie bring his wish true by spreading his idea onwards. Of course, by helping Jamie succeed we greatly help ourselves and our loved ones live healthier, happier lives. And that’s entirely the point!

So please share!

Detoxamin/Wow Did I Finally Find It?

I don’t want to get too excited,  but it would appear,  that the wonder suppositories,  have arrived? That is,  Detoxamin,  the new heavy metal chelation therapy,  delivered,  via a suppository. Very Cool,  and seemingly the answer to a very complex problem, and kudos  to those that have figured this out,  especially,  if there are no side affects? As you may,  or may not know,  I have been detoxing,  from what I believe to be mercury toxicity,  as I have every symptom listed for it? I am now in the middle of massive detoxification,  and the removal,  of what were 15 mercury dental amalgam fillings,  now being replaced with composite fillings. I have so far had one quarter of my mouth done, the lower left,  so,  about 12 more fillings  to be removed.

I have been mostly doing the natural detoxification methods,  of supplementing with cilantro and chlorella, I use  cilantro, frozen cubes, fresh daily in my smoothie and as a spice on foods,  also tincture,  from the health food store. The chlorella is a very interesting food source,  and I have tried every kind available,  and tend to feel that the powdered form  is the most beneficial, I also tend to take more of everything then they suggest as I have always had a high tolerance to everything, but this is very personal,  and one must study and learn the affects of certain treatments for them. I do believe that this is a learned technique that anyone  can do.

I am looking forward to my second 1000 mg dose, I just wanted to say,  that I believe,  Detoxamin,  holds a lot of promise,  towards us being able to remove heavy metals from our system effectively/Do your own research at


Remove Your Dental Amalgams

I have been in a battle with mercury toxicity for over a year now. The strange symptoms of tingling, and skin rashes, burning sensations and raw skin, combined, with joint pain and mood/personality disorders, have forced me to learn about mercury toxicity. This in turn, led me, to toxic mercury dental amalgams, which I cannot believe were ever used , let alone, that they are still being used today. I, at 61 years of age,  had 16 of these fillings up until December of 2009, when I started their removal, I have since had the bottom teeth in my mouth replaced with composite fillings, that have been tested to be best for me.

You can do your own research, as there are thousands of references to this condition, and, I now believe that for one to acquire maximum health, one has to start with being completely free and clear of mercury, as well as all other heavy metals. There are many natural methods documented for helping you with detoxing from heavy metals. I have used most of these at different times during my detoxification, they include cilantro, chorella, chlorophyll and any range of good green foods. Fiber is also very important, and daily I consume, chia seed, hemp seed and flax seed as well as psyllium husk to aid with elimination.

I believe that this toxicity from our environment, the food we eat, and, our old amalgam fillings, to be the cause of many diseases today, including autism and alzheimer’s, so get that mercury out of your mouth!

I have embarked on at least my decade of detoxing,  and intend to keep this up in some form for the rest of my life, that is a regimen of diet, exercise,  supplementation and detoxing that will hopefully help me to attain optimum health. Please see the video below, to better understand,  the complications,  of a human body dealing with mercury.

Chlorella/Sea Vegetables-Wonder Foods Wonder Drugs?

I cannot say enough about the wonderful vegetables of the sea, I mainly ran into their wonderful benefits by accident, while trying to find natural ways to rid the body of mercury toxicity,  from old mercury amalgam  dental fillings and the environment. I have have had allergies and skin problems all the way to back to when I was very young growing up in the Windsor,  Ontario area. Very industrial and right on the Detroit river we even used to swim in it as kids …..yuck now ;-(

Anyway, a couple years back my teeth starting chipping, and exposing the metal fillings to my gums, and within a few month’s, my heavy metal symptoms got worse, and, I have been tingling everywhere ever since. This led me to natural heavy metal detoxing, which led me to the herb cilantro, and chlorella, considered, to be the best natural form of removing metals from the human body, without drugs.

I have not 100% verified the link below but it seems just like a good information site .

That being said I tend to agree with most of what I read there so I thought I would leave it to your discretion.
