Famine in the Seeds!

Consider the Next Generation of Seeds Today

Marlenea La Shomb, N.D., LMT
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

There are many aspects to growing your own food, especially in the colder climate that we have here in Montana. Working with nature is the goal and that begins with your seeds. It is important to consider the way we are handling today’s seeds. So many hybrids have been developed that you actually have to seek out original, non-hybrid seeds. Hybrid plants are sterile, meaning that seeds must be purchased for every planting. They cannot be saved and shared from year to year as your ancestors did in the past! This may be good for the seed companies, but NOT for the seeds. The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences has indicated that since many of our crops are so genetically uniform through hybrids, they could easily be wiped out by one disastrous disease epidemic.

Most of our vegetables were derived from herbs, but they no longer have the essence, the pungent tastes, or the odors of those herbs. They are increasingly losing their power and effect in the human body. These original, non-hybrid seeds produce crops with immunities to pests and blights through struggles of nature. These seeds have survived the centuries, and so did we.

The Feng Shui of—


Michele Lewis, CFSP
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

I know all of you out there have been doing a great job cleaning and decluttering this spring! Now that you’ve finished some basic tidying up, you can clean at a deeper level through the use of efficacious methods for space clearing. Space clearing is cleansing at an energetic level, removing accumulations of negative yin qi. Negative qi is both seen and unseen, and can be felt through our own sensitivity. It gathers in buildings and spaces, clings to walls, ceilings, and furniture and tends to “hide” behind objects, in closets, corners and dark spaces. This extreme yin energy also will sink and accumulate on the floor.

There are many types of negative yin qi. Emotional energy, such as anger and hostility, as well as sadness and fear, can all be felt in a home. Behavior patterns that are spiritually or emotionally unhealthy and those that cause illness and even death, including suicide, carry this energy. Smoking, alcohol and drug abuse—as well as all other addictions—carry a type of negative energy that accumulates over time in a home or building. In many cases, the occupant is unaware that there has been a gradual build-up of negative energy. Negative yin qi can enter a building or space through other people, animals, or through forces we may not be aware of.

Bowenwork for People with Cancer

from Sandra Gustafson, MHS, BSN, RN

Crystal Maceira, CBP, LMT, MH
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

Cancer is a disease that affects all societies around the globe. With all the financial, medical, and scientific resources so focused on “finding the cure for cancer” and no clear result in sight, one has to wonder if medicine is approaching this quest from the best angle. Thousands of researchers worldwide are employed in the medical/pharmaceutical industry to find and create curative treatments and drug compounds. Approximately thirty-two Nobel Laureates have received Nobel Prizes for cancer research. Billions of dollars are spent each year, and yet this disease has not been eradicated. Why not? One reason is “reductionism”—the biomedical view of trying to isolate and target specific molecular path- ways to develop curative treatments, without understanding that cancer, and cancer treatment, requires a holistic, biologic approach—not a one-system-cures-all approach.

The holistic model addresses the complexities of host/disease/ drug interactions and offers personalized therapies that boost the immune system’s ability to activate its own defense against cancer-cell replication.

Restoring Men’s Health, Vigor & Vitality

New Book: The 4 Pillars of Men’s Health

Marlenea La Shomb, N.D., LMT
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

In my line of work, JumpStart Your Health, men’s health is key. So when I heard Dave Skattum’s speech on his new book, The 4 Pillars of Men’s Health, at Livingston’s Toastmasters club, I knew it was a must read. Our men are in trouble. And when they seek out help or improvement, many times, they are offered how-to programs to build muscle and increase sexual stamina. Nearly half of all men don’t even meet basic federal activity guidelines, with a 35% obesity and hypertension rates.

Many times, life deals with men in cruel, crippling ways. They sink into despair and begin a downward spiral of negative thinking. Enter the four pillars of men’s health, four keys to maximize your inner and outer strength, a practical, well researched guide filled with personal experiences that are far removed from theory and full of encouraging ways to become a healthy man. The 4 pillars are: Nutrition, Exercise, Accurate Thinking, and Spirituality. They were discovered by Dave to give whole health to a person, landing him in the top of his field in public speaking, triathlons and business, and doing it in six years.

More Integrated Functional Movement

Terry Kennedy, MPT
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

In the January-February 2019 issue, I wrote an article, Integrated Functional Movement, with descriptions for three exercises to strengthen patterns of movement with optimal body mechanics (or biomechanics) that could be applied to everyday activities. Cultural norms and practices tend to lead us away from good body mechanics and into muscle imbalances, where some muscles are overworked and others under utilized. This changes the length and tension of the muscles and fascia, and causes abnormal stresses on joints.

It can be difficult and tedious to acquire optimal body mechanics during everyday tasks as we move about on autopilot. The key is to practice optimal mechanics, slowly at first, and lay down an improved pattern into the neurological system.

There are surprising things you can do to enhance physical and mental performance if you know how to use oxygen the right way. Then, all you need is 15 minutes day. Our system, using insights of top-secret military training, plus Oxygen Multistep Therapy, delivers profound conditioning or self-healing results without the use of drugs, chemicals, surgery or invasive techniques.

Tiger Woods, LeBron James, Michael Phelps, Mario Lemieux, Olympic athletes, multiple players in the NBA, NFL, and professional baseball all use some type of oxygen. Even weekend warriors find it extremely effective. We have seen it improve almost every symptom known to mankind, including Parkinson’s, ALS, and Lyme disease.

Roasted Carrot Tahini Dip

Move Over, Hummus—There’s a New Dip in Town!

Janice Feuer-Haugen
May-June 2019 • Vol 3, No 104

Crunchy, sweet, nutritionally rich carrots appear on most every dip and vegetable platter. Yet, we never see carrots as the star. With today’s recipe, that’s what’s happening. Stand aside hummus, there’s a new dip in town. Rich, flavorful, light and vibrant, Roasted Carrot Tahini Dip is equally satisfying whether spread on a leaf of baby romaine, served as a dip with crudités, or enjoyed from a spoon as a quick pick-me-up.

Yes, you can find carrots in markets throughout the year. Though the freshest and most flavorful, locally grown carrots are available from June through October. Choose carrots with the deepest orange color for the greatest amount of beta-carotene. Generally, carrots with the largest diameters will be the sweetest, as they have a larger core, which is where the carrot’s sugar is concentrated. With organically grown carrots, there is no need to peel them, just wash them well.

Creating a Carbon-Negative CBD Farm

Hilary Pederson
March-April 2019 • Vol 3, No 103

Hello! We are Baked in Montana—a farm and business based in Gallatin County. We grow hemp, extract CBD, and process our products locally. Our goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle by using natural products, while addressing some of our cultural and environmental problems. Today we would like to share our farming philosophy with you.

Creating and sustaining healthy soil is part of restoring an ecosystem. We find ways to partner with natural processes instead of working against them. This has been our passion over the last several seasons of growing. We work to heal the soil by reintroducing organic materials and microorganisms. We cut back on practices that damage natural soil systems, such as tilling, pesticides, herbicides, commercial fertilizing, and over-irrigating.

Is the Keto Diet Right for You?

Enhancing the Body’s Physiology

Lynn Evans, RN, M.S., CNW
March-April 2019 • Vol 3, No 103

The picture on the left, above, shows me at my heaviest (230 lbs.) in 2001. I was 43 and miserable. I had tried almost every diet that came along. All of them were some version of a low fat/low calorie diet. All seemed to work initially, but none lasted long term. In about 2002, I discovered and was shocked at their message that FAT does not make you fat. I adopted a high-fat, whole-food diet. Many of my physical aliments disappeared, but after about a year, my weight loss stalled. I then learned about the low-carb, high-fat approach, and then I discovered the Keto Diet.

I was probably a diabetic for many years, despite being told by my doctor that I wasn’t, as my labs were “normal.” I was unfortunately told for many years by doctors I trusted that, “I just needed to eat less and exercise more.” I now know this is very bad advice. I’m still a work in progress, but I feel fabulous at 60, and much “younger” than I felt 30 years ago!
