Weight Loss Makes Pregnancy Possible for One Woman

Infertility Vanished with One Woman’s Weight Loss

Natural Health | February 23, 2011

I met Holly Johnson this past weekend at our Northern Virginia Whole Foods Nutrition meetup group. When I heard her dramatic testimony of how a change in diet enabled her to become pregnant, just had to share it with you!

Here is our video interview!

For more information on low carb diets, I recommend Living La Vida Low Carb blog by Jimmy Moore. If others have suggestions on helpful weight loss sites, please add them to the comments, below.

Coming soon, a guest blog by a medical doctor who has just come out with a book on weight loss. He has helped thousands upon thousands of patients lose weight. We spoke on the phone yesterday, and I am very excited to hear what he has to share!

Check the Books and Literature section of my resources page for more help on nutrition and lifestyle changes to improve your health. New Trends Publishing offers several excellent weight loss books, A Life Unburdened and Eat Fat, Lose Fat, for instance.

Kimberly Hartke is a health and wellness blogger. She and her husband lost 50 lbs between them by following a healthy fat, good carb diet, which emphasized low glycemic carbs.

This post is part of the Real Food Wednesday blog carnival. You’ll find lots of healthy recipes and real food ideas on Kelly the Kitchen Kop.

In 1950, the number of starving individuals on Earth was estimated to be around 700 million; 100 million people, primarily in rich countries, were obese. By 2010, the world’s hungry had marginally grown to 800 million, while the number of obese citizens of the world had exploded to 500 million.

Illinois Legislators Back Off Raw Milk Ban After Consumer Outrage

Illinois Legislators Back Off Raw Milk Ban After Consumer Outrage

Under current Illinois law, farmers can sell an unlimited amount of raw milk on the farm without a permit. Legislators and health officials were working hard to completely banish farm-to-consumer agreements in some sneaky ways. This was not lost on Illinois’ thriving raw milk market.

Now, a proposed bill in Illinois banning the sale and distribution of natural or “raw” milk, has come to a screeching halt this session after legislators heard from thousands of natural milk supporters.

Sheriffs Lead Militia to Stand Up for Rancher in Nevada Being Attacked by Federal Agents

As the standoff between Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and federal agents with the Bureau of Land Management gains national attention, due mainly to the alternative media, constitutional sheriffs from around the U.S., led by Sheriff Richard Mack, are leading a militia force to intervene in Nevada.

In what appears to be a full military assault by the federal government on Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy over property rights, the governor of Nevada has publicly condemned the assault on its citizens but has taken no action. Federal agents have reportedly already seized and possibly destroyed some of Bundy’s cattle herd. Watch the report below from NextNewsNetwork with interviews from local residents discussing what they believe the real issues are in this heavy-handed government seizure of family farm land:

The Health Benefits of Maple Syrup: Why You Should Replace Processed Sugar with Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is one of the many wonders of the world and far more than a simple sweetener. Maple syrup is not only rich in essential nutrients such as manganese as well as zinc, but 34 new beneficial compounds discovered just a few years ago have been confirmed to play a key role in human health.

Antioxidants found in maple syrup have anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, and anti-diabetic properties.

Soy-Based Formula Linked To Seizures In Children

Soy-Based Formula Linked To Seizures In Children

Phytoestrogens in soy-based formulas are known to carry greater risks than benefits for infants. Babies fed soy-based formula had 13,000 to 22,000 times more isoflavones in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula. New data published in PLoS One shows that consumption of soy formula may also be associated with a higher rate of seizures in children. In addition, while true cancer of the prostate, carcinoma, is seldom seen in infants and children, other forms of malignant tumors may develop and more cases are appearing in developed nations where the link appears to center around soy infant formula.
