Do This to Lower Your Blood Pressure Wouldn't it be great if your mind had a superpower that made your blood pressure behave?

Wouldn't it be great if your mind had a superpower that made your blood pressure behave? It does! A review of nine major studies says your mind could budge your blood pressure in a healthy direction if you give it a meditation break. Regular practice helps lower both systolic (the top number) and diastolic pressure. Breathe In, Breathe OutMeditation -- that ancient art of focusing on a phrase or mantra, letting your breath flow in and out, and allowing your thoughts to gently come and go -- is a proven stress reliever. And research now shows that regularly practicing transcendental meditation may have blood pressure benefits. (Get a head start on meditation basics by popping in the new YOU: Breathing Easy CD. It walks you step by step through several refreshing and relaxing meditation and breathing techniques.) Need more incentive to meditate? Check out these other areas that it helps improve:

Memory: Read how meditation gives you a more organized mind.

Dr Mercola

Organic farms have historically been small, family-run businesses producing for local markets. But as conventional agribusiness and the supermarkets move in, organic shops are expanding, being bought up, and increasingly resembling their non-organic counterparts.
Under pressure by Wal-Mart, many multinational food corporations have developed organic versions of their best-selling brands, including Heinz, General Mills, Kellogg's, Groupe Danone, Nestle, Unilever Bestfoods, RHM, Mars/Masterfoods, Kraft, Premier Foods, Northern Foods and Pepsi-Co.
You can now get “organic” ketchup, rice crispies, and ready meals -- what started out as a method of producing healthy and nutritious food is now turning out highly industrialized multi-ingredient products.
These industrial organic foods are being marketed along with vitamin-enriched products and functional foods; in the eyes of General Mills, “organic is not a revolution so much as a market niche.”

It's Official: Organic Really is Better

Cracking Down on Organic Food Fraud

EPA Muzzles Benefits of Organic

It’s mainly a matter of knowing where to find locally harvested organic foods, buying from sources you want to see thrive, and reading packaged food labels like they’re the hottest thing from Oprah’s book club.

The fact of the matter is; true organic IS better. Both for you and for the environment.
What is Organic?

To be labeled “certified organic” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the food must be free of most:
Synthetic fertilizers
Genetic modification

Top 25 Summer Heartburn Triggers
Don't Get Burned by These Summer Favorites
-- By Nicole Nichols, Health Educator

Chili dogs, chocolate ice cream, and cherry cola. Summer brings a lot of tempting treats. But unfortunately, many of these warm weather foods can leave your belly more than a little upset—especially if you're prone to heartburn.Check out the list below for the 25 most common heartburn-causing foods of the season, why they're problematic for heartburn sufferers, and some alternative foods that will allow you to participate in the festivities without going hungry.

1. Beef kabobsBeef can be greasy and high in fat. Kabobs made with chicken, fish and/or veggies
2. Corn on the cob with butterButter is a known heartburn trigger.Summer's sweet corn is plenty flavorful. Try it boiled or grilled, without the butter.
3. Chili dogsChili is spicy and tomato-based, while hot dogs can be high in fat.Go for a veggie, lean beef or turkey dog and ditch the chili.
4. Chocolate mousseChocolate and dairy foods such as mousse and pudding can trigger heartburn.
If dairy foods cause distress for you, try fruit-flavored gelatin as a sweet dessert.
5. French friesGreasy and high in fatTry baked potatoes in the oven or on the grill. If you must have fries, make your own, but bake them instead of frying.
6. Fried chickenGreasy and high in fatTry skinless chicken breasts that are baked or grilled.
7. Funnel cakes Deep fried and high in fat
8. Grilled onionsOnions are common triggers for digestive distress.
9. Grilled peppersSweet or hot, peppers can cause heartburn.
10. HamburgerGreasy and high in fatOpt for a lean chicken, turkey or veggie burger.
11. Hot dogs and sausagesSome sausages can be spicy while both meats are high in fat.Try a veggie dog or a lean turkey or beef hot dog, but watch out for those heartburn-triggering toppings!
12. Hot salsaBoth spicy and tomato-based (acidic)

If tomatoes don't bother you but spices do, go for mild salsa. If you want a dip for your chips without the spice or the tomato, try mashed avocado.
13. Ice cream This dairy food can cause issues for many people and can be high in fat. Steer clear especially of mint and chocolate flavors, which can both trigger symptoms.Sorbet is dairy-free, fruity and sweet!
14. Iced coffeeCoffee and the caffeine it contains can trigger heartburn.Try iced tea instead, which contains far less caffeine.
15. Ketchup and mustardKetchup is tomato-based (a heartburn trigger) while mustard contains another trigger—vinegar.Get creative with your sandwich toppers. Try hummus, fresh herbs, low-fat mayo or a favorite low-fat salad dressing.
16. Lemon meringue pieCitrus fruits can cause heartburn.
17. LemonadeMade with an acidic citrus fruitTry apple juice or chilled water with just a touch of lemon.
18. PicklesMade with vinegar, a common triggerTry sweet relish instead.

19. PineappleAn acidic foodTry mango or papaya, which can aid digestion.
20. Potato chips with ranch dipBoth can be high in fat, while many dips are dairy-based
21. Root beer floatsRoot beer is carbonated while ice cream is a common trigger (due to dairy and fat content).
22. Salad dressingMany can be high in fat and contain herbs and spices (like garlic) that are triggers.Go for low-fat salad dressings that are light on garlic and spices.
23. SauerkrautNot for people sensitive to vinegar
24. TomatoesAn acidic food and common trigger
25. Watermelon An acidic fruit that can cause digestive distressFresh summer fruits abound.

Just avoid acidic and citrus ones. While the foods listed above are common heartburn culprits, others can eat some (or all) of them without problems. Keeping a heartburn journal can help you narrow down your unique list of triggers, just as eating smaller meals dining more slowly can also help. Here's to cool summer fare that doesn't leave you feeling burned!

2 Day New Patient Comprehensive Evaluation

Tuesday, July 29, 2008


Back in the 1970s, a couple of blokes were sitting in an English pub, bemoaning the consolidation of the brewing industry in England and the decline of British beer and ale. A commodity that represented the soul of Britain carefully brewed lagers from countless small-scale manufacturers, each with a distinctive color and taste had been edged out by the insipid canned beers of a few large monopolistic breweries. What was needed, they decided, was a return to traditional brewing methods. They launched A Campaign for Real Ale, which soon became the force that turned back the mega-brewers and reinstated varied and delicious ales to English tables and pubs.

Back in the 20s, Americans could buy fresh raw whole milk, real clabber and buttermilk, luscious naturally yellow butter, fresh farm cheeses and cream in various colors and thicknesses. Today's milk is accused of causing everything from allergies to heart disease to cancer, but when Americans could buy Real Milk, these diseases were rare. In fact, a supply of high quality dairy products was considered vital to American security and the economic well being of the nation.
What's needed today is a return to humane, non-toxic, pasture-based dairying and small-scale traditional processing, in short . . .

A Campaign for Real Milk is a project of The Weston A. Price FoundationPMB 106-380, 4200 Wisconsin Ave, NW, Washington DC 20016Phone: (202) 363-4394 Fax: (202) 363-4396 Web: Information/Membership/Brochures: Local Chapters and Chapter Leaders: Website:

In addition to our fine meats and poultry, West Wind Farms offers other wholesome, healthy, farm-raised products, such as big brown eggs laid by our lovely free-ranged hens, golden local raw honey, artisan cheeses, healthy pet foods, and more. Most of these products are produced by us here at West Wind Farms. We support sustainable agriculture by offering handcrafted food products produced by other small-scale farmers we personally know as well.

Each and every product you purchase from West Wind Farms is a one-of-a-kind, artisan food or craft produced by hand the old-fashioned, slow-w-w way on a small grassroots farm. You're sure to be pleased with our handsome and unique variety! Check out the many shelves of fine foods in our Larder. Then stroll over to the Milking Parlor and Pet Pantry. We hope you enjoy your visit!
