Most floss is toxic because it is made from nylon, a petroleum-based product, coated with a Teflon synthetic resin – think nonstick cookware – called PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). Both are carcinogenic and can cause cancer, arthritis, altered immune response, thyroid disease, hyperactivity, hormone imbalance, and reduced fertility.
When I first heard this, I thought “how can a piece of floss cause so many issues?”
Here’s the short version of why certain kinds of floss can harm …. floss that contains PTFE can leave traces of chemicals in your mouth that will either be swallowed or absorbed into your bloodstream through the thin mucosa lining of your mouth; especially if you floss once or twice a day for years on end as many of us do.
These kisses are easy to make, gluten-dairy-refined sugar free, and the perfect something if you are on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I was healing on stage 1 of this diet, I kept a stash (+ other sweet treats) in my freezer to nibble on when I craved sweet …. they are also great for the lunchbox.
If you get vaginal yeast infections more then you want one then I highly recommend The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). I could go on and on about this way of eating as I personally adhered to stage 1 for 3 years back in 2010 after being diagnosed with a systemic yeast infection (included tons of itching and discomfort down below).
Hands down, I think B.E.D. is one of the best yeast killing, yeast balancing protocols out there.
Up until my oldest started kindergarten, he had limited exposure to refined sugar. We were an organic, homemade kind of family that consciously avoided sugar, artificial colors, gluten, and pasteurized dairy.
Most of our friends ate how we did and if we went somewhere serving food we couldn’t eat, I checked beforehand to see what we could bring. No matter what food we ate, or didn’t eat, I think its important to feel included; especially for kids.
A Treat Box is basically a Tupperware container filled with non-perishable treats. This box can be kept at school, day-care, summer camp, even a best friend’s home and offered to your child whenever there is a food item that he or she can’t eat (i.e. gluten, dairy) or that you don’t want him or her to eat (i.e. sugar, artificial dye).
Wonder what the rave is about with these red pills? They’re a no-fuss, flavorless way to eat liver! Easy as taking a multi-vitamin; hardest part is just getting in the kitchen to make them. See here for how my family eats liver.
It’s very important to source pasture-raised liver for this recipe. Even better, raise the animal yourself or buy from local farmer who freezes the liver immediately after slaughtering.
Do NOT use conventional supermarket liver. You are consuming these raw, and conventional liver can’t be trusted and is a health risk.
