Immensely Educated by the Digestion Sessions from Underground Wellness

I cannot say enough good things about the FREE Digestion Sessions going on right now via the internet thanks to Sean Croxton! The interviews of highly knowledgeable functional medicine doctors and naturopaths are *A M A Z I N G*!

The interviews discuss things like:

--Causes and natural remedies for constipation, GERD, acid reflux
--How anxiety and depression may be rooted in the health of your digestive system

--How to get rid of Candida yeast overgrowth for good

--How stress affects your digestive system

--How to treat and heal IBS and IBD for good

Every interview has offered me *so much more* beyond what I thought it would be about! WOW!

This morning, I was re-thinking how *very much* we ARE what we eat, and we FEEL what we eat. The food we put into our bodies does affect us mentally, physically, emotionally, and relationally. Our "fast food and quick pill, in a hurry" society has lost complete sight of that reality.

Our society thinks we can run to a doctor and get a prescription for a quick pill to fix everything that we feel is wrong while totally ignoring that our entire well-being is heavily tied into what we are putting into our mouths and how well that food is being broken down and used by our bodies. The quick fix pill is usually only covering up symptoms to a more important underlying cause which needs to be addressed. The quick fix pill is not truly fixing anything and will often bring worse problems long term.

Because I struggle with digestive problems, I purchased these sessions and watch them at my own pace. Not only that, but I also get access to bonus material and am able to print all the interview transcripts! This has been one of THE BEST investments I have ever made!

Please don't miss this FREE event, or even better yet, buy these sessions!  I am not getting anything for promoting these.  I'm promoting them because I care about helping others achieve better health.

The Digestive Problems Series hosted by Sean Croxton

Since I personally struggle with digestive problems, I am an avid proponent of accessing health information that mainstream doctors don't talk about, tell their patients about, or even know about.  I don't want a pharmaceutical pill to hide symptoms. I believe in getting to the root of the problems in a holistic manner and resolving the issues at the root levels.

Therefore, I am super, duper thrilled about this online series on digestive function!!  If you struggle with any digestive issues (like GERD or acid reflux and many others), please do not let anything stop you from checking out this online series being presented and officially beginning on Sunday, November, 9th.  It is a wealth of helpful information.  

I am so thankful for Sean Croxton's hard work in putting this together and making it available to the public.  

If you miss any of the "live" presentations or want to have access to them over and over again, you can purchase the entire series for a very reasonable price!  Your health is way more valuable than the cost of these sessions.

I am currently viewing and listening to this "preview" right now and find it completely fascinating!!!

VOTE YES on Proposition 105 (Colorado) and Measure 92 (Oregon)

COLORADO and OREGON voters are about to have an opportunity to vote for the labeling of GMO products. 

By now, Colorado voters, have received at least 4-5 large, colorful flyers paid for by Monsanto (the chemical company and makers of Round Up pesticide), Pepsi Co., Kraft, and General Mills which provide you with *misleading* information.  The flyers suggest that voting yes for GMO labeling will be harmful to the farmer and will cause grocery prices to skyrocket.  These are very misleading statements!!

Email Q&A from November 22, 2013


I was wondering how long it took after beginning to supplement your HCL intake that you got relief from your GERD? I'm pinning down if my recent GP diagnosis is truly from my diabetes or is hypochlorhydria. I'm scheduling the Heidelberg test soon but am hoping to get some relief.

Thanks so much for your blog. I totally identified with what you wrote.
God bless!



Hi Steve,

Thanks for your email. 

It didn't take too long for the HCl to help me with GERD.  It was more a matter of me playing around with the Betaine HCl supplement and figuring out how much to take with each meal and what was right for my personal needs.

MA's Amazing & Natural Deodorant

I originally posted this on my other site Essential Oils for Health and Healing.

I've been searching for years to find the most natural, aluminum free deodorant that really works.    I have tried countless natural deodorants and wasted a lot of money doing so.  I finally came across a Tom's of Maine deodorant that somewhat worked, but it wasn't that great and quite pricey.  Using it, I was still having a problem with odor unless I remembered to reapply it multiple times a day.  A few weeks ago, I came across some homemade deodorant recipes.  One claimed to really, really work, but it had ingredients that I didn't have on hand and would have to order online.  That was too costly, and I wanted to use what I had on hand.  The recipes inspired me to work on my own formula that would work perfectly for me.  It took me about three or four tries, and I finally created this recipe that is simply amazing and works excellently.  I apply it once a day and no matter the heat or the sweat, I do not have any problems with odor whatsoever.  In fact, my daughter finally gave it a try and today she exclaimed, "Mom!  You're deodorant is amazing!!  I put it on once and there isn't any odor all day!  Plus, it does not stain my shirts."

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Regarding the Topic of Parabens, Deodorants, Anti-Perspirants, and Breast Cancer

I often share many informative health articles on The Acid Truth Facebook page.  Last week, I shared a few more articles regarding parabens, deodorants, anti-perspirants and the breast cancer link.  In response, a reader (also a close relative of mine) messaged me letting me know that a friend of hers had sent her a link from the American Cancer Society: Antiperspirants and Breast Cancer Risk. In their article, the American Cancer Society basically says that the link between parabens and cancer and aluminum and Alzheimer’s are a bunch of hogwash and should be ignored and also stated more studies are needed to prove it true.  The reader asked me what my thoughts were about the article.  Here was my reply:

When I get conflicting information, I always look back at the sources of that information. On one hand, we have a host of organizations and medical people who pursue and promote holistic and more natural ways to maintain good health, and they refer to studies that reveal the build-up of parabens in the body may have something to do with an increased incidence of breast cancer.

On the other hand, we have the link you were sent from the American Cancer Society (ACS)  (a mainstream medical related organization) that says it is all hogwash, and women shouldn't be worried it about it. The article angers me even more stating that it is possible the people or organizations suggesting that parabens may increase cancer risk and aluminum may increase Alzheimer’s risks might have something to gain (in selling more natural deodorants) by promoting a falsehood.  What a joke! As I learned by watching the Burzynski Movie, cancer is big, serious business, not natural deodorants.  The ACS also infers that women concerned about breast cancer should stay away from hormone replacement therapy.  While it is true that synthetic hormone replacement therapy can be harmful, there is proof that natural, plant based progesterone replacement can be beneficial to many women.  

The ACS also says that the best way for women to take care of their breasts and protect themselves is to have mammograms.  That is another issue of controversy considering that every time we have a mammogram we are radiating our breasts and that there are other natural and holistic medical articles which suggest this could do more harm than good in the long run and that mammography is not extending the life of women

A better alternative to mammography is thermography. I've also recently posted some of the latest articles about mammography and thermography on The Acid Truth Facebook page.

A few years ago, mainstream medical sources also told me that my acid reflux problem would have been cured with the typically promoted acid reducing medications.  I was told that I had Gastroparesis and needed to remove all good fiber from my diet. That was SO false!  I am forever grateful for doing my own research and finding the book Why Stomach Acid is Good for You. I solved my stomach and acid reflux problems by taking a Betaine HCl acid supplement with every one of my meals.  Big money is involved in promoting the propaganda that the majority of the adult US population needs acid reducing drugs. The fact is that our bodies need stomach acid to break down food in order to absorb nutrients properly and to keep harmful bacteria out of our system. My experiences with my stomach and digestive system are what led to me starting this blog and adding the Facebook page to complement it.  I called it The Acid Truth because the mainstream teachings proved false, and they are harming a lot of people.

Mainstream medical sources also told me that antibiotics would be the cure to my antibiotic induced colitis back in 1994. When antibiotics didn't cure me, I searched and found Primal Defense, a probiotic that did.

I was also advised last year that my cholesterol is way too high and it may cause me to have a heart attack. Psh... I've had enough of all the propaganda trying to push some pharmaceutical drug on me. I've read many articles about the cholesterol issue from the more holistic and natural side and having high cholesterol doesn't mean you are going to croak over any minute. Our bodies need cholesterol. There are more important lifestyle and dietary aspects which lead to heart attack than eating too much cholesterol or having a high reading. I'm currently reading the book The Great Cholesterol Myth. Big money is also involved in promoting the propaganda that people need to take pharmaceutical drugs to lower their cholesterol. The number of people who truly need these drugs is actually minimal.

I could go on also about the flu shot, the food industry, the FDA, GMO's, and Monsanto ... but I'll spare you.

As you can see, I am very much a non-conformist to the mainstream medical stuff. My experiences have made me that way. If my bones are broken or I need stitches, I'll definitely go see a doctor. If I need blood work done, I'll go see a doctor to get the orders. If the doctor tells me I have an illness and need some pharmaceutical drug to cure it, I'll be doing my own research and trying more natural and alternative methods first.  If the medical profession is trying to convince me that the latest and greatest pharmaceutical drug is the answer to my problems, I'll probably run for the hills!

My goal is always to educate myself on all the facts and possibilities, not to just take someone else's word for what is best for me and my body. We all must make that decision for ourselves, but it should be a very informed decision.

I suggest you read more articles about this topic and make an educated decision as you are led. There are a bunch of articles on Dr. Joseph Mercola’s website about breast cancer, parabens, and aluminum. Go to the site and type "parabens breast cancer" in the search box. You'll get many links of articles to read.
