GMOs: The Fight Starts With Us!


The Fight Against GMOs

GMO research is only beginning to show us what damages can happen or occur when we consume genetically modified foods.

The Time Has Come...

Are you READY to break the vicious cycle of toxins and stress?

Are you one of the hundreds of millions of Americans who are challenged by a barrage of toxins: from the environment, the air we breath, the water we drink, the medications we take, the foods we eat? 

Are you somebody who is constantly burdened by stress; emotional, oxidative, adrenal, even gut related stress levels?

So, we’re running out of food?


Another week, another gloomy report. This article details a recently published study that warns that we may run out of food by the year 2050. Filled with doom and gloom scenarios and dire warnings, the study looked at four crops—corn, soybeans, rice and wheat—and determined that the rate at which these crop yields are increasing isn’t fast enough to meet our growing population.

Label It!

We’re not sure whether to be thankful or terrified. The people over at Natural Cures Not Medicine have compiled a list of processed foods that contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

Connecticut Sets the Standard

Many of you remember the disappointment felt after Proposition 37, the bill which would have required labeling of food sold to consumers made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways, did not pass in California last November. Who could forget how Monsanto, PepsiCo and other large companies fought fervently, by raising nearly $45 million against the bill, and ultimately got their way.

Toxic Overload

Since the Industrial Revolution—which alone added about 80,000 toxic chemicals—and post-World War II
petrochemical revolution, toxins have accumulated in the human system faster than they can be eliminated. Hence, toxic overload—from our soil, atmosphere, water, food and more.

Nutrition in a Nutshell


You may already know that nuts are packed with nutrition, but when nuts are sprouted, they pack even more of a nutritional wallop.

But let’s take a look at the nutrition in a nutshell.

Our National Chemical Addiction

Did you know that over 80,000 chemicals are registered in the United States, with over 2,000 more added each year for everyday items such as food, personal care products, prescription drugs, household cleaners and lawn care items? It’s appalling, but it’s true.

Water Wars

It’s bad enough that Nestlé former CEO—now Chairman of the Board—Peter Brabeck-Letmathe supports GMO farming, saying that genetically modified (GM) foods are “perfectly safe” and don’t cause any health problems, while also saying that organic farming is “not the best.”

Holistic Land and Livestock Management


It’s no secret that how we manage our land and our other resources—from the local level to the global level
—has everything to do with sustainability and the very future of our having any fertile land left on the earth. And simply put, farming methodologies are either part of the problem or part of the solution.

At Beyond Organic, we’re happy to say that we’re part of the solution.

Food Freedom


You might say that they’re keeping the “Maine” thing the main thing. More specifically, Sedgwick, Maine, is the first town in Maine—and perhaps the nation—to vote unanimously to adopt the Local Food and Self-Governance Ordinance, which exempts direct farm sales from state and federal licensing and inspection.

That is a significant accomplishment, too, and could readily set the precedent for other towns wanting to preserve small-scale farming and food processing. In fact, other towns are in the process of following suit, particularly three other towns in the same Maine county—namely Penobscot, Brooksville, and Blue Hill—have already voted on, or will be voting on, the ordinance at or prior to their town meetings. That same ordinance also exempts foods made in the home kitchen. They will be free to buy and sell as well.

Radiant Results



If you’re among those who just completed the 10-Day Daniel Diet, then you’ve most likely seen some amazing outcomes in your health and beyond. You might even call them radiant results—and with good reason.

Most of us know that eating veggies and fruits is a good habit for overall health, but it can also work wonders for your skin, giving it a younger and tanned appearance. Researchers at the University of Bristol studied the effects of carotenoids, or yellow or red antioxidants, in fruits and vegetables such as yellow and red peppers, spinach, tomatoes, carrots and melons and found that they not only support a healthy immune system and fertility, but they also play a significant role in healthier skin.

Horsing Around


The phrase “horsing around” typically has fun and laughter associated with it, but this type of horsing around
is sobering:  our nation is on the verge of reinstating killing horses to be used as food, a practice Congress did away with in 2007, but lapsed in 2011. Now companies countrywide are gearing up to re-engage slaughtering horses for food—a topic of heated controversy.

Many animal rights organizations say that legalizing the killing of horses for meat is cruel and could result in unsafe meat.  Those who support the practice cite that horses are consumed worldwide anyway and that it would prove highly profitable for American companies to join in—with current plans only to export the horse meat processed here in the States.

A Diet Dilemma

He was offered a meal fit for a king—literally—but he refused it and, instead, went with the basics, the food
and drink he knew would be best for him.

I’m talking about Daniel, of course. Yes. . . Daniel of the Bible—the same one who was thrown into the lion’s den and came out untouched and without incident. There’s more to the story of Daniel, however, and his “diet dilemma” is part of it.

Meatheads

I've known for a long time that processed meats are extremely unhealthy, but now a study involving over half a million men and women, published in the journal BMC Medicine, shows a strong correlation between eating processed meats and developing heart disease and cancer.

The study demonstrated that the risk of dying prematurely from any cause went up with the amount of processed meat eaten, but the risk of dying earlier from cancer and cardiovascular disease increased with the amount of processed meat eaten. Professor Sabine Rohrmann, who led the study’s analysis, remarked, “Overall, we estimate that three percent of premature deaths each year could be prevented if people ate less than 20g of processed meat per day.”

GI Ginger


You could call it “GI Ginger,” since ginger is known to soothe and relax the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, but that doesn’t fully describe all the benefits of ginger.

For starters, ginger is known via modern scientific research as having numerous therapeutic properties, including its positive effects on the GI tract as well as healthy antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Scary Dairy


It’s nothing short of scary. 

The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition with the FDA to change the definition of “milk” so that chemical sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose can be used as ingredients in the milk—but not be listed on the label.

This is not necessarily a new agenda, however. The petition was originally filed in 2009, but it’s now being considered by the FDA. If this petition passes, then these hidden ingredients can also find their way into at least 17 other conventional dairy products such as whipping cream, low-fat and non-fat yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, half and half and eggnog.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Talk about a brilliant apple creation! 

I’m not talking about the newest technology release. I’m talking about apple cider vinegar, or ACV, which is made up of pulverized apples allowed to ferment, producing a tangy, healthy apple cider vinegar. ACV’s main ingredient is acetic acid, which is known for helping to support a healthy terrain, weight management, and healthy blood sugar levels—among other things.  

Apple cider vinegar has recently entered the spotlight as a health tonic and supplement, but it’s been around for some time now.  In fact, ACV was literally put on the U.S. map in 1958 when it was highlighted in the D.C.

pH Balancing Act


It’s pretty simple. The body and its processes—including the immune, metabolic, enzymatic and restorative processes—do better in an alkaline environment instead of an acidic one. Unfortunately, the foods typically consumed by most Americans are overly acidic-forming foods, and that’s hurting our health and our inner terrain, including our cells.

Our modern diet is heavy on the acidic side due to processed grains, conventional meats, sugars and unhealthy fats—which lead to the body being more acidic. When the body’s more acidic, however, it directly and unhealthily affects the blood and bodily tissues, including the cells of the heart, blood, brain, nerves, muscles, bones, skin and hair. And when your cells—the building blocks of who we are—are unhealthy, then you’re inviting disastrous health consequences. The truth is that the body’s trillions of cells prefer a slightly alkaline state—and alkalizing foods such as apple cider vinegar and others are foods your body, including your cells, will love and respond favorably to.

Holy. . . Basil!

Prepare to be amazed.

Holy basil may be one of the best kept secrets when it comes to its impact on health.  Known as tulsi, holy basil touts significant health benefits, including soothing stress; promoting blood sugar balance; immune system support; gastrointestinal health; anti-aging and antioxidant power; heart health; joint health; cellular health/cancer therapy; adrenal support; hormonal and reproductive equilibrium and much more.

Turmeric, a Terrain Transformer

Last week, we delved into Antoine Béchamp’s “terrain theory” which states that the inner health and condition of your cells, tissues and organs—your terrain— determines whether or not disease will develop or spread in the body.

Now it’s time to talk about turmeric, an amazing terrain transformer because there’s more to it than meets the eye. Turmeric may appear to be only a flavorful cooking spice, but it goes way beyond that. In fact, the oil content of turmeric is strong, but its yellow-orange pigment, called curcumin, is its primary health impetus.

A Brilliant Health Champ

You’ve probably never heard of this health champ—Antoine Béchamp (1816 to 1908)—but he was one of France’s most prominent researchers and biologists who held degrees in biology, chemistry, physics, pharmacy and medicine.  Béchamp was a contemporary of famed Louis Pasteur, but Béchamp’s research concluded the exact opposite of what Pasteur’s studies did.

While Pasteur’s “germ theory of disease” stance says that disease comes from outside the body and is what conventional medicine and pharmaceutical use is founded on, Béchamp’s  “terrain theory” research is based on the premise that the inner health and condition of your cells, tissues and organs—your terrain — determine whether or not disease will develop or spread in the body.

Angry Fats

Angry birds have nothing on these angry fats—trans fats.

For years, we’ve known that trans fats are hazardous to health. They’re  oils that have been chemically altered into solids—mostly for shelf-stable reasons. We also know that they can cause unhealthy cholesterol levels, cardiovascular problems, insulin imbalance, blood sugar havoc, greater free radical damage from oxidative stress and unhealthy levels of inflammation.

Cheese Rinds and Other Artisan Cheese Finds


You’ve probably never thought of the cheese rind of artisan cheese as important, but it is—as are several other aspects of artisan cheese vs. store-bought cheese.

As review, artisan cheeses are handmade in small quantities with respect traditional cheese-making—at Beyond Organic, we go beyond artisanal as our cheese is farmstead as well which means it is made from the milk of animals located on the farm where the cheese is made, ensuring a higher-quality product. By contrast, it’s hard to say where the milk comes from—let alone its quality—to make conventional or even organic store-bought cheese.

Power-Packed Protein Perks


Protein is one of the macronutrients that the body can’t do without. Everyone needs it because it supplies energy, supports growth—including the building of muscles, new cells and tissues—increases stamina, supports a healthy weight and immune system, and fuels most bodily biochemical activities. Likewise, enzymes, antibodies and hormones are mainly composed of protein.  What’s more is that proteins catalyze most of our livings cells’ reactions and control nearly all of our cellular processes.

Cellular Cleansing


When many people think about cleansing, they focus primarily on the liver, kidneys and other organs. While those areas are extremely important, it’s also necessary to cleanse at the cellular level. When cellular cleansing occurs, the body can rid itself of damaged or malfunctioning parts of cells, including damaged mitochondria, which can truly be toxic if left unattended in the body.  Damaged mitochondria, for instance, can lead to accelerated cellular damage and aging as well chronic diseases.
