The Traditional Foods Movement has been an impressive agent of change in thousands of people’s lives. Out of this movement have come many heroes: WAPF, Paleo, Primal, GAPS, AIP, Grain-Free, etc. But what are the differences? And what is right for your family? [by Wardee Harmon]
I went gluten-free a little over a year ago. Since then I’ve heard gluten-free eating called a “craze” that lacks common sense, hurts the wheat industry, and randomly condemns an entire food group. Is gluten-free eating a fad — or is it a necessity? After intense soul-searching and research, here is my answer to this question. [by Lee Burdett]
Last September, I bared it all and shared a brief history of coffee enemas along with my personal experience of this detoxifying therapy. Now, one year later, I’m STILL doing coffee enemas daily! Now I’m going to share what happened in my body as a result — the good, the bad, and the ugly. [by Lindsey Dietz]

I’m really, really pleased to focus our attention on a question I often get asked — is it okay to eat grains if I’m trying to heal my gut? I asked nutritional therapist Lydia Shatney, teacher of the online class Heal Your Gut, to step in and help us really understand this issue. If you have questions or comments, be sure to speak up in the comments. [by Wardee Harmon]
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you’ll meet Maureen Validivia, who began her real food journey after more than 10 years of worsening symptoms of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (a thyroid disease). Conventional medicine couldn’t help and in fact made her worse. So she began her own healing journey using real foods, traditional food preparation methods, gluten avoidance, and finally a gut-healing diet. Today, she is feeling oh-so-much-better and has experienced 100 pound weight loss (without even trying). Auto-immune disease sufferers or those specifically with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis will find great inspiration and resources through Maureen’s story and experience. Plus… the tip of the week!
Ask your doctor, your mom, and a stranger on the street if apples are healthy for you and you’ll get the same answer. Absolutely. In fact most people would look at you a little weird if you questioned it. Don’t they say, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? I hate to make your fantasy world come to a screeching halt, but here goes… Also in this post, you’re invited — to a Facebook party on Fri, Nov 1 where we’re giving away $1000+ in prizes, including my new book, The Sweeter Side of Candida.

Alright, y’all. I’m about to spill the beans (pun intended) on a very personal subject in my life. I feel like I’m about to give the birds-and-bees talk to a room full of 14-year-olds. My armpits may be sweaty, and I may even be blushing a bit at the thought of doing this. Never in a million, gazillion years did I imagine I would even do coffee enemas, much less write about them! Nevertheless, here I am, about to tell all — because I’ll talk about anything if I think it might help even one person. [by Lindsey Dietz]
