Testimonial From A Friend w/ Gall Bladder Problems That I Helped

Vittoria – so I think you remember, and I want to THANK YOU for all your advice regarding gall bladder cleaning – I want to post about this too on Facebook and thank you, if that is OK – I had the six month followup on my gall bladder – and while I am not 100% clean, my doctor said he had never seen such rapid improvement – which he said had to be the diet on top of the Ursodial medicine – the scans are just incredible – from a gall bladder full of sludge and stones, to one with such a scattering of tiny sparkles, remnants of what was there and no edema or wall swelling and no issues with the bile ducts – I am still going to continue with ursodial another 6 months at least, and of course, olive oil, artichoke, healthy fats, mostly vegetarian and fish – but really the changes are incredible and what should take two years, took about 6 months – really thank you – Mike

A NYC Chiropractor’s Thoughts on “Not So Real” Food

Today in the NYTimes: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/03/weekinreview/03harris.html?_r=2 which talks about taste tests done on foods that don’t contains artificial colors/dyes.

“Without the artificial coloring FD&C Yellow No. 6, Cheetos Crunchy Cheese Flavored Snacks would look like the shriveled larvae of a large insect. Not surprisingly, in taste tests, people derived little pleasure from eating them.”

And I’m thinking to myself as I read ” What about using natural colorings”  and there at the bottom of the article was

“As yet, natural colorings have not proven to be a good alternative. They are generally not as bright, cheap or stable as artificial colorings, which can remain vibrant for years. Natural colorings often fade within days.”

And I have to think how wrong it is to eat a so called food that will be vibrant for years. After all we know that as soon as you pick a fruit,  for example, that it starts to lose nutrients. So what nutrients might be left after years??

Ok, you say but I want some potato chips! Ok how about doing what Michael Pollan suggests; make them yourself. I’d make mine w/ new potatoes and olive oil. The coloring would be natural, some nutrients from the potato and olive oil and no fading because I’d eat it all up.

Let me know what you think!
