The Paleo Diet is a low carb eating program that will have you enjoying wholesome, natural foods from the food groups our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have thrived on. These foods include fresh meats (preferably grass-produced or free-range), fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed).
The Paleo Diet is believed to be the healthiest way we can eat as the only nutritional approach that works with our genetics.
Why the Paleo Diet?
Modern life today means that many people have become busier and busier. It is quick and easy and saves time to choose packaged, pre-prepared and fast food. But do we consider what is contained in these foods; the additives, colours, refined foods, trans fats and sugars? We now also eat more whole grains, legumes and dairy.
Modern life has also seen a rise in serious disease. We see more and more people succumb to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, migraines, asthma, sleep disorders and much more. We have also seen a rise in obesity which also contributes to health issues.
For optimum results it is best to eliminate any processed foods and minimise snacking to once per day (best time to snack is between lunch and dinner) and eat nothing after dinner for a two-week period. This will break your normal day-to-day eating habits and allow a fresh start with a fresh perspective.
Sample meals from Dr. Cordain’s latest book, The Paleo Answer:
Breakfast: Free range eggs scrambled in olive oil, chopped parsley. Grapefruit, or any fresh fruit in season, herbal tea.
Snack: Sliced lean beef, fresh apricots or seasonal fruit.
Lunch: Caesar salad with chicken (olive oil and lemon dressing), herbal tea.
Snack: Apple slices, raw walnuts.
Dinner: Tomato and avocado slices; grilled skinless turkey breast; steamed broccoli, carrots, and artichoke; bowl of fresh blueberries, raisins, and almonds; one glass mineral water.

“Use little or no toothpaste!”
Do you have an issue of plaque bacteria build up on you teeth after eating? When we eat sugary foods the plaque bacteria produce acid which attacks the teeth, causing tooth decay. Saliva helps wash away and neutralise this acid, but it is harder for saliva to work the more plaque has built up and the more sugary foods we eat. The main purpose of toothpaste is to clean the teeth of plaque using mild abrasive detergents as well as being an important source of fluoride which has proven to protect teeth against attack from bacteria.
The Ionic Toothbrush could be your answer to little or no toothpaste, yet the result is sweet smelling breath and sparkling teeth! Particularly popular with those travelling interstate and overseas, as well as teenagers using braces for orthodontic work. A high tech toothbrush from Japan could support you to have healthier teeth and gums, using little or no toothpaste, because it needs only saliva and light to clean the teeth.
How the Soladey Toothbrush Works
A light-activated titanium dioxide rod inside the handle of the Soladey toothbrush, when exposed to any light source (a plain light bulb, a fluorescent bathroom light, or sunlight) generates negatively charged electrons called ions. These electrons are then released into the saliva, bathing the mouth in negatively charged slurry.
Positively charged hydrogen ions present in plaque’s acid are attracted by these electrons, neutralising the acid and the plaque breaks down, pulling positive hydrogen ions from the dental plaque in your teeth. As well as being effective at destroying the harmful bacteria found in the mouth related to tooth decay, called Streptococcus mutans. The acid is then neutralised and plaque is disintegrated, the natural and scientific approach to a cleaner and healthier mouth!
The bacterial population in the mouth has a direct impact on the body’s state of health, in a similar way to the intestinal flora. So by maintaining clean teeth will contribute to a healthier lifestyle.

dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Essential Oils
About Essential Oils
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant, eliciting profound emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal. Used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits, essential oils can be used as natural alternatives in holistic self-care practices. Their unique chemistry allows them to be used aromatically and applied topically to the skin, while other essential oils can be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being.

Why Use a Coffee Enema?
Coffee enemas are known to be extremely beneficial for cleansing the body of harmful waste matter, particularly when used in conjunction with a cleansing program that is high in nutritional support. The coffee enema also assists in elimination by bowel cleansing.
Coffee Enemas are also popular for helping to relieve the symptoms of serious illness. Max Gerson, MD, whopioneered the Gerson Therapy, documented excellent results for cancer and other diseases in “Healing the Gerson Way” and other writings. His Gerson Therapy combines coffee enemas with a special diet, juices and supplements. The enemas are an integral part of the process.
If you suffer from constipation an enema can be useful, although it should never replace a bowel movement.
Enema vs Colonic Irrigation?
A coffee enema is aimed at cleansing and improving the liver function, whereas colonic irrigation cleanses the bowel and colon.
How Do They Work?
Dr.Gerson explains that the power of the enema is in its ability to cleanse via the liver/bile. Enemas dilate the bile ducts allowing the liver to release accumulations of waste matter. Harmful waste from faecal matter and free radicals diffuse into the blood and cells of the body. If left, they accumulate and this may lead to disease and premature aging.
The caffeine from the coffee is absorbed into the haemorrhoidal vein, then taken up to the liver by the portal vein which draws fluid out and up into the liver every 4 minutes. If the liver is unable to dump the toxins in the bile, the toxins will accumulate and the body reuses this bile full of harmful waste.
The caffeine causes dilation of blood vessels and bile ducts, while the enzymes in coffee stimulate the liver to produce new bile. The old harmful bile is dumped into the large intestine where it is safely evacuated from the body.
When all the coffee has been absorbed into the bowel and the catheter removed, the coffee should be held for 12-15 minutes before evacuating. This allows your blood time to travel through your liver up to 5 times allowing your liver to continually dump the harmful waste.
Your liver and kidneys are no longer overwhelmed by harmful waste and the liver is then free to process more incoming harmful matter material that has accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream.
Benefits of Coffee Enemas:
Toxin Elimination – The major benefit of the coffee enema, is to enhance elimination of waste matter through the liver.
Cleansing – Coffee also acts as an astringent in the large intestine, helping clean the colon walls. A common contributor to ill health is the production and absorption of harmful waste within the small and large intestines. If food is not digested properly, sugars ferment and protein putrefies or rots. Both processes generate harmful chemicals which are then absorbed into the liver.
Stimulates Bile Flow – The coffee enema enhances digestion by increasing bile flow and removes toxins in the large intestine so they will not be absorbed. Most people with health complaints suffer from impaired digestion and production of harmful substances in the intestines.
Stimulates Liver – Coffee enemas are particularly helpful for slow oxidizers. Their liver activity is more sluggish and digestion is usually impaired. Fast oxidizers may have more difficulty retaining the enema.
Further benefits of Enemas are:
- May assist with increased elimination from the bowel
- May help to relieve headaches
- May help to increase alertness
- May help to increase energy
