What we thought we knew of human dietary nutrition has truly only scratched the surface.  New research and studies regarding the appropriately titled, SUPERFOODS, have just begun to provide a basic understanding of the magnificent healing powers provided by these magical foods and there is so much more still to be learned and shared that has yet to be discovered.  No longer do we have to rely on outdated, inefficient and costly medicine for help is right around the cupboard door in the all-new medicine cabinet of the future that's chock-full of super foods.  And, despite some of the marketing campaigns that are piggy-backing on the term, superfood, to draw consumer attention for the sales of their own products, there are foods which literally possess supreme healing powers and hence deserve the name, super food.  Depending on how you analyze them, the list of foods can be rather extensive for  those being classified as superfoods, each possessing their own individual nutrient-rich profile and healing potential.  And, superfoods are not just for American health, these foods are for the health and well-being of the entire nation because with the convenience of current technology, communication and shipping, superfoods of some sort can be accessed across the globe.

Lemons, fruitful gifts from above with the healing powers of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and phytonutrients

Lemons, nutritional and beneficial for optimal health

As tart as lemon juice may be to the taste, it's health benefits are indefinitely sweet to the human body.  With a nutrient rich profile that's stacked with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, flavonoids and phytochemicals, lemons are ultrahydrating foods that immunize, alkalize and purify (and even sterilize) the body, all of its cells and its support systems.  And, when it comes to consumption, it really doesn't get much faster or any easier than just slicing and squeezing the healing juices out of lemons for drinking as a beverage; topping as a dressing; marinating as a seasoning; calming as a sleeping aid (when combined with warm water and honey); cleansing as a disinfectant; and/or what-have-you.  Lemons are a heaven-sent food and their fruitful powers are rather limitless.

A look at some of the most water-rich foods that you can eat to keep hydrated and stay cool with this summer

Embracing the heat with a cool, hydrated body

Regardless of whether you're using Celsius or Fahrenheit measurements, one thing is for sure, the heat index temperatures are rising steadily for the months of the summer season and the weather forecast is not showing any sign of things getting cooler any time soon.  Nonetheless, there's not a need to ring the alarm or create a fire drill for because we can all take natural efforts to better keep (calm and) hydrated and stay cool this summer.  In addition to drinking an ample amount of water to fully nourish and hydrate your body on a daily basis, you can also eat specific foods that will help to keep your body cool during times of high heat temperatures.  At the top of the list of the most recommended cooling foods to eat in summer to keep your body cool are what we commonly refer to as water rich foods (and/or foods that are rich and otherwise high in water content). Adding some water-rich foods to your daily diet, especially during the hotter seasons, will work wonders for your body (and mind) by keeping you naturally cool and adequately hydrated, too.  See some of the most popular cooling foods listed below that you can begin to supplement in to your diet every day for their maximum hydrating and cooling powers.

The healing benefits of paypaya for weight loss and digestive health

Coined by Christopher Columbus as the fruit of the angels, papaya is native to the tropic regions of the Americas and brings with it a limitless amount of healing potential for our digestive systems (as well as our skin, too).  With well over 500 (some of which are still yet to have been fully discovered) digestive enzymes, papaya is the ultimate fruit doctor for healing and supporting human digestion, providing relief from constipation and upset stomachs while also reducing any inflammation and alkalizing the insides of our intestinal tracts.  In addition, papaya can alleviate and even reverse symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, colitis, ulcers, pancreatitis, liver disease and other ailments and diseases of the digestive system.  With regards to weight loss, the enzymes found within papayas play a key role in improving human digestion and promoting natural weight loss by flushing wastes and otherwise excess weight from the body in a routine and uniform manner.  If our body is not properly digesting the foods that we eat and/or is not removing the byproduct wastes on a daily basis, our body will in turn be bloated and full of food particles and waste dispersed throughout our digestive tract.  Improving our digestion and the digestibility of the foods that we eat will help us to shed excess weight and keep it off seamlessly and naturally.

The story of how a Doctor diagnosed with MS chose nutrition and natural, plant-based healing over costly, Western medicine

Code blue: redefining the practice of medicine

What started out late 1995 as an MRI confirming diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) has since blossomed in to an awakening of the powers of plant-based nutrition on health, wellness and healing for Dr. Saray Stancic.  After about eight long years of battling with the suffering and pain accompanied by the burden of taking ineffective pharmaceutical drugs (and likely an unimaginable amount of frustration), Dr. Saray came across an article in a medical journal that shed some light on the possibility of managing MS with diet and/or nutrition.  At first doubtful in this new approach of "treatment" and even discouraged by her neurologist and physician peers, Dr. Saray decided to give this newfound approach a try and has since reaped the benefits of natural healing with whole food, plant-based lifestyle/diet.

Lunch, the all-time most important meal of the day for us

Lunch, the all-time most important meal of the day for us

Examining the science (and biological reasoning) behind our meal times and why lunch is the most crucial time of the day to eat

First things first, let's debunk the tales about breakfast

Contrary to what the food industry publishers are paid to report, breakfast is definitely not (and should not ever be considered) the most important meal of the day.  If you're anything like us, the majority of human beings, take a moment to think about a typical morning for yourself and your body.  What's the first thing you usually do when you wake up, use the restroom, right?  Point being (and we'll go in to further detail about breakfast in a future article about dietary nutrition), your body does not want to be burdened with digesting loads of foods during the waking, morning hours as it is instead focused on flushing wastes from your body to prepare you for the full day ahead.  So, don't believe the nonsense that the bacon and egg (and high-cholesterol drug) pushers are soliciting, breakfast is a horrible time of day for you to eat heavy.  Period.
