No Meal is an Island

No Meal is an Island

When you fuel your being with the products of compassion and wholesome-ness, you become a product of compassion and wholesome-ness.

If you fuel yourself with the products of pollution, pain, inefficiency and failure, you are a product of pollution, pain, inefficiency and failure.

There is a lot connected to (Many fingers of association) the production of a food. And all of the embodied, accumulated history of the food’s life becomes part of the body and “Energy” of the consumer.

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Files Lawsuit against Major ‘Organic’ Cheater Brands

Around here we have been using Dr. Bronner’s soaps (And their other products) since the 60s.
…Remember…Young people, primarily members of the counter-culture, come to love the soap with which they could do everything: from washing their VW vans, to cleaning their bell-bottoms, to washing themselves by the nearby lake. They also groove on the label’s call to peace and the fact that Dr. Bronner’s is a real person, not some corporate mascot. Word-of-mouth soon makes Dr. Bronner’s the iconic soap of that era.

Drawing scorn for healthy living

Drawing scorn for healthy living

                        Drawing scorn for healthy living

Written by: Indian Knoblauch | 10 Nov 2008

It seems that there is a negative societal outlook on healthy living.

Why is this? Has the media created it? Surely not; with so many images in the media of people who are fit and healthy. Is it just a general human laziness that gives us a lack of motivation to do anything that is good for us?

One of my favorite podcasts, The Satellite Sisters, brought my attention to this issue. The show is hosted by five real sisters who talk about anything and everything. It is a total estrogen party, but I love it. One of the sisters was talking about several decisions she had made to live more healthfully and the others were less than enthusiastic. They laughed at her decisions and seemed to play it off as their sister being too paranoid.

Things that had to go

The things she gave up will really lead to her being much healthier.

She gave up regular deodorant because of the aluminum it contains, which has been shown to be a contributor to Alzheimer’s disease and can lead to heavy metal poisoning.
“Heavy metal poisoning is the toxic accumulation of heavy metals in the soft tissues of the body,” according to the website Health A to Z. “Patients may complain of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, headache, sweating and a metallic taste in the mouth. Depending on the metal, there may be blue-black lines in the gum tissues. In severe cases, patients exhibit obvious impairment of cognitive, motor, and language skills.”

Giving up deodorant doesn’t mean stinking all the time. It can take a while to find alternatives that work, but they’re out there. And it certainly seems worth the extra effort to take away the risk of heavy metal poissioning and Alzheimer’s disease.
It certainly seems worth the extra effort to take away the risk of heavy metal poissioning and Alzheimer’s disease.

She also gave up chemical sunscreen because of the negative effects associated with it.

According to Sunscreen Summary; What Works and What’s Safe, an article found at, “…some sunscreen ingredients absorb into the blood and some are linked to toxic effects. Some release skin-damaging free radicals in sunlight, some could disrupt hormone systems, several are strongly linked to allergic reactions and others may build up in the body or the environment.” Sounds like a good thing to give up to me, especially when there are mineral based alternatives.

And finally she gave up the use of her microwave oven.

People are fascinated when I tell them I don’t use a microwave oven.

Does anyone remember the stove? Just stick it in a pan and heat it up. It’s well worth the small amount of extra effort and energy when one considers the possible side effects of using a microwave oven.

According to, microwaved food ingested by humans can cause digestive problems; it can hinder the lymph which helps to clear toxins out of the body, lead to a higher number of cancerous cells and increase free-radicals which are the cause for aging and many diseases. The list goes on and on and those are just the highlights. I didn’t even mention what microwaves do to the food nutritionally. Check out the website if you want to learn more.

A win-win situation

These are important things that at least need to be considered. When people make the decision to eliminate such things from their lives, they should be commended, not scoffed.

So why is it that healthy choices aren’t celebrated?

When people hear about someone making decisions to better his life, is it they feel bad about themselves and so react in an unappreciative manner?

I suppose I could understand if that were the case. I’ve done similar things; I’m sure we all have.

What we should do is appreciate, support and be inspired by others. We should be thinking win-win.

Let’s help each other to be healthier in all ways. Do things that promote a fulfilling life. Recently I started hiking several times a week with a girlfriend. I get a different response when I tell people about my girl-time hikes. They are supportive, but they say things like, “I wish I could do that.” This shouldn’t be the response I get. Why aren’t we taking responsibility for ourselves?

Don’t wait

If you want something go get it! Don’t wait around for things to happen to you, make them happen. The only way your life will change is by taking responsibility for yourself and creating the life you want to have.

I have been whining about not having a flat stomach forever. I knew that just talking about it wasn’t doing any good, so I finally started doing crunches and my stomach is increasingly flatter.
If you want to be a healthy, happier person, then do it. Figure out what you want, make it happen.

Let the people who don’t support your decisions to better yourself be damned.

A short discussion about Triphala:


Often, when someone has an interest in, or a need to do some internal housecleaning I recommend considering a course of Triphala.

This is very good insurance. And there’s no telling what might improve physically, mentally, emotionally, Etc. with the intelligent use of this curative/health building/wellness maintaining therapeutic effort.

Triphala is an indispensable botanical gift from the Ayurvedic tradition of East India. Ayurveda is world’s oldest, still fully intact system of healthful living and healing.

Triphala literally means ‘three fruits’ (tri = three, phala = fruits). It is a mixture composed of the three essential myrobalans. They are:

Amalaki (Emblica officinalis)

Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica)

Haritaki (Terminalia chebula)

Pro-Pesticide Group Criticizes First Lady’s Organic Garden

Pro-Pesticide Group Criticizes First Lady’s Organic Garden
And First Lady Michelle Obama is coming under criticism from a pro-pesticide industry group for deciding to plant an organic garden at the White House. The Mid America CropLife Association recently wrote to the First Lady to urge her to consider using pesticides, or what they call “crop protection products.” One official with the pro-pesticide group said, “While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made [us] shudder.” Mid America CropLife represents agribusinesses like Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences and DuPont.

We (Wholistic Wellness Associates) exists to make a meaningful contribution to the well-being of everyone on the planet and the planet herself. We are honored to be a small part of this most important effort.
There is a movement underway which we feel that we helped to initiate in modern times, a movement which remains our focus of attention and passion.

We realize that everyone becomes happier and healthier as anyone becomes happier and healthier.
We understand that everyone, everywhere deserves to enjoy high-level health and vital, long life. That’s not too much to ask, it’s not too much to expect. It is the least we deserve.

As it turns out, living in a manner which servers you best is also kind to the environment and therefore automatically the best gift you can give to the kids.

In some ways it’s more of a challenge to stay on the healthier side of life in today’s busy world, but in some very important ways it’s easier and more enjoyable than ever before. Supporting our greater potential (personally and collectively) is not difficult, is not expensive and need not be confusing. It is our nature. Lots of folks haven’t realized it yet, but there is a whole new world of vibrant living filled with abundant energy, fluid movement, happy disposition, strong-healthy kids, little reliance on poison drugs and the most satisfying meals you can imagine. It’s right here waiting for you. You deserve no less. To the extent that we may be of service, we are honored to help. If we never connect, we hope at least that you question the standard party line on health and wellness and that you do indeed find your way to being as happy and healthy as you like.

Diet transition guidance:
We have successfully helped countless people (and pets) seamlessly transition from SAD (standard American diet) to a healthful, enjoyable, productive diet.
Our deep immersion in the field since 1969 gives us the knowledge to give you the understanding.
Just a little light-weight guidance can save you mountains of confusion and years of experimentation, thus getting you on the right track NOW.
We have used roughly the same basic program for decades with attention of course to individual specifics.
We know what works and can explain why.
We stay current on all the latest pertinent research and can clearly demonstrate how; what you are doing might be improved upon.
We will easily demystify the overload of conflicting information on health, nutrition, supplementation Etc.

Personal Environment ‘once-over’:
Our ‘WellSpace’ division is expert in the field of ‘Environmental Evaluation and Remediation’. As addressing this factor is critical to well-being, we have for years offered field audits to assess chemical, biological and electromagnetic stressors in the home and office and provided the remedies to make the space a healthful one. We still contract field audits, but because everyone benefits from making easy, appropriate adjustments in this area, we offer tele-consultations for people outside the radius of field work or for those who can’t find technician in their area. It’s really not complicated, but very important.

Advice and action in this area is most helpful before building or buying a new home and can, with a few minor adjustments transform a ‘sick house’ (a space which creates or sustains ill health in its inhabitants) into a space that nourishes and nurtures high-level wellness. Everyone who has not addressed this important issue suffers, and everyone who does make simple, appropriate adjustments realizes greater wellness!
Over the years we have been involved in many astounding success stories as a result of reducing and/or shielding from these very significant forms of ‘invisible pollution’. We have amassed an impressive stack of testimonials detailing the often complete resolution of; allergies, chronic aches-and-pains, asthmatic symptoms, dementias, fatigue, EI; a wide range of mental, emotional and physical complaints. This is no minor area within the specter of balanced, healthful living, yet it is most often overlooked and under-appreciated. We would urge everyone (especially those with young children) to find out how to make the home a healthy home.

Plant based nutrition:
We have been explaining for many years the endless benefits of eating ‘low on the food chain’ and the many problems associated with doing otherwise. We will happily advise and/or direct you to the best sources of information on sensible, energy-giving, strength-producing, longevity-supporting, physiology-appropriate Plant Based Nutrition.

Supplement consolidation:
We can all reason that nutrition comes best in the form of ‘whole natural food’. While some intelligent supplementation may be beneficial, there are some key things to know with regards to; type, source, dosage, frequency, brand, interactions, duration Etc. Generally, for folks who are already on a supplement program we can help them reduce the entire intake of pills, make sure that everything being used is well worth the effort/expense, get much more out of the supplementation, and save money. For folks not supplementing at all, we may suggest a very small but highly beneficial adjustment. There is a huge industry supported by a ballooning phenomenon that has been termed ‘Nutritionism’. Nutritionism is a paradigm which assumes, in part, that it is the scientifically identified nutrients in foods that determine the value of individual foods, which is to say that the nutritional value of a food is the sum of all its [identified] individual nutrients. Such thinking has often lead to the mistaken assumption that; if a whole-food is helpful in addressing an ill condition for instance, that one nutrient factor within the complex matrix of the whole-food is the reason. Nothing could be further from the truth. Never the less, such a line opens the door for pharmaceutical corporations (which own most of the big supplement brands) to sell a misinformed population lots and lots of pills that do little or no good and often contribute to health imbalances. True there are many ‘valuable’ nutritional supplements available and we at WWA support the right of individuals to purchase and use what they choose. We support this right while we work to advance a more transparent, honest and realistic investigative and information dissemination process as well. The point is that some supplementation is often helpful, even life-saving, but without a doubt, the supplement regimen undertaken by most people is not based on a realistic risk/benefit assessment… It almost can’t be for the average person inundated with information overload when the ‘studies’ are mostly funded by organizations with a special interest in the ‘results’, and most medical doctors (where many people seek advice) are not educated on the matter. Supplementation cannot substitute for high quality whole food, but supplementation done right is beneficial indeed.

Energetic balancing:
Some of the therapies used in a clinical setting are primarily ‘energetic’ in nature (among these are numerous self-administered therapeutic techniques) and work well (and can be taught) long distance.
