Natural HealingOver the past couple of months I've dropped ten pounds using a “slow carb” diet. But, once again, I'm kind of stuck. So I started looking into supplements — vitamins and minerals — that might often be deficient in those who have trouble losing weight. The vast numbers of potions and pills is overwhelming.

I ended up with a bottle of calcium with vitamin D, but it got me thinking. Certainly the best possible way to get vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and all those other needed microscopic things is through real food.

Fortunately, we like most vegetables and fruits. Generally speaking, getting a good variety of these will provide most of the nutrients a healthy person needs. Sometimes, however, we have a specific health need that our typical diet isn't addressing. If I can solve a problem with a real food or a product made from real food, I have more confidence that it will be properly absorbed.

If you have any health problems associated with inflammation, consider wellness drink called Nopalea. I can help cleanse the body of toxins, reduce inflammation, and promote optimal health — and all from rare antioxidants sourced from the fruit of the Nopal cactus.

Since Samson was released from the hospital (the second time!), we have made a concerted effort to eat better. We've always eaten very healthy foods, but now even the kids seem determined to do whatever is within their power to stay out of the hospital and healthy. So we're on the lookout for ways to accomplish that. If you find other products that have helped you, let us know!
