Thanks Angela, much of the science has been blocked either from being put into supplement form or from being able to advertise it, even though there are laws that say we can. All 3 of the components that I mentioned below are available in supplement form. There is an additional discovery fairly recently that I just found out about that also has remarkable results when put into the body in concentrated form.
I prefer the nutraceutical level of nutrition as you can count on the results, but with that technology comes a price tag that makes them only available to the middle class and above.
Therefore, eat more local fresh food and especially sprouts. Hopefully I can post more soon.

Thank you Joseph for putting this information on line. There are so many positive healthful components to food that you can not get in pill form. When we speak of such things in the Moms group, we try to teach transparency with regards to our food. Know your food, know your farmer. Learn about what you are eating as though your life depended on it.....because it does.

I am sorry that I haven't had time to post on here before now. Just too busy this past season. I have been in the nutrition field for over 15 years dealing with pharmaceutical grade nutrition components. One thing about eating fresh produce is that there are several nutrients that you wont find in non local produce as they are consumed within the fruit or vegetable in an effort for that produce to preserve itself. Among the powerful nutrients found in fresh produce are: Phytosterols - which play a roll in regulating whole body systems and balancing out all 84+ hormones in your body, phytonutrients - which play an important roll in controlling body odor and according to the American Cancer Institute - will kill cancer, they also contain very powerful anti-oxidant properties, and Glyconutrients - which are known to be the communication system of the body all the way down to a sub cellular level. Glyconutrients also boost glutithion levels - your master antioxidant and with the ingestion of enough of them, can give the body what it needs to produce up to a trillion new stem cells within one week. Eating local and especially right off the vine, is so vitally important to optimal health.
Growing local, buying local, and eating local will bring a new level of health and wellness to our community, which means less money spent on health care needs and more on quality of life.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to identify myself in this group. I practice Physical Therapy and have become increasingly convinced that people dealing with chronic pain often have nutritional issues that effect their pain experience.
I have also recently, 2 years ago, discovered a new love...growing food! I practice organic methods as I learn about them and you could say I have a micro-CSA out of my backyard, which includes a 'cold' greenhouse, as Elliot Coleman would put it.

Lots of great information on Gluten free diets and Celiac Disease. Jack, do you provide only gluten containing products or do you have some products that are gluten free as well? I have been sending my clientele to mail ordering and some local health food stores but it would be great if we had someone local to send them to for gluten free products. Forgive me if you have already posted this somewhere and I have not seen it. I'm trying to catch up!

Good idea! Angela, has not been able to joing as of yet due to computer and access issues, but soon will.

im like ruell, don't know much about gluten, and even less about where it is in my foods. could you or someonelse post a blog in the main space about dos and donts? sure the community would appreciate it.
Comment by Ruell Chappell on December 16, 2009 at 12:46pm
you bet i would Jack if i knew anything about it. I know the gluten deal is huge. Angela Jenkins, our diettitian, along with other pros, will be soon monitoring and facilitating this group. She has already alerted me to the fact that growth of allergies, etc, is, in large part, connect to GMO wheat , corn and soy. Good news. Keep up the good work Jack. We will get this food thing right eventually. Just thank your stars everyday that we are in the midst of a "perfect storm" for change. Were we not.... i do not believe we would have gotten any where near this far down the line unopposed.
