According to the Physician’s Desk Reference, the mucosal lining in the mouth has an absorption efficiency of over 90 percent! Because of this, fluoride has the potential to get into your blood and your cells IMMEDIATELY. Over 95% of toothpastes sold in the US now contain fluoride. Fluoride toothpastes sold in the US generally have between 1,100 and 1,450 parts per million of fluoride.This means that children who swallow too much fluoride toothpaste can suffer acute poisoning, even death. In fact, a single tube of bubble-gum flavored Colgate-for-Kids toothpaste contains enough fluoride to kill a child weighing less than 60 pounds!
What Is Fluoride? Why Put It In Toothpaste?
Fluoride is a pollutant – a by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. It is the main ingredient in rat poison, insecticides, nerve gas and Prozac.
Hitler and Stalin used it in concentration camps and gulags as a mass control instrument to make the prisoners docile.

An obstacle often encountered in the journey to healthy eating is family and friends, who, perhaps while well meaning, can sabotage one’s resolve. “A little cake won’t hurt,” or “don’t be such a downer,” can demean your efforts and can deter your good intentions. Whether family members or friends, they may feel threatened by your changing lifestyle and attempt to disrupt your new Nutritarian diet. I refer to these people as saboteurs or food bullies.
The answer is to be confident in yourself and your goals and set boundaries to what is acceptable from others and what is not.
Why is setting boundaries so important? Personal boundaries protect our individual interests and shield us against harmful influences. Learning how to create healthy boundaries is a critical social skill. Finding a balanced approach, however, is essential because it’s important not to ruin otherwise good relationships. When we learn how to create boundaries from a place of self-love and wisdom, it serves us well. Setting clear personal boundaries is key to ensuring relationships are mutually respectful, caring, and supportive. Boundaries are a measure of self-esteem and they help set limits for acceptable behavior from those around you. Establishing healthy boundaries helps empower you to make healthy choices, feel respected and understood. Otherwise, not setting such boundaries often is fraught with fear of rejection or abandonment.
The key to boundaries is consistency. People in your life are used to you being a certain way, when you change, often you will encounter resistance. It’s important to continue to stick to boundaries even when entrenched in your new healthy lifestyle.
HOW TO SET BOUNDARIES:
•COMMUNICATE: I highly recommend sitting down with family and friends and letting them know you have started a new health journey. Ask for their support and help. Don’t be defensive or accusing, just ask for their understanding during this transitional time.
•SET PHYSICAL BOUNDARIES: If your family is unwilling to change their eating lifestyle, insist on separate kitchen space for your food. Out of sight and out of mind is key. Tell them not to offer you SAD foods and to be respectful about eating foods not acceptable in your healthy diet in front of you, especially in the beginning of your transition. Many people will be very interested in this new life change and want to know more. This may make you feel defensive, but never get into a debate or try to justify yourself to anyone. Simply stating that you are excited about your new journey is enough. If people have questions, answer them, but do not get stuck in a cross examination or argument.
•GIVE A HEADS- UP: If people typically tend to serve or bring you SAD foods on special occasions, reach out to them in advance and say you are on a special diet that restricts these foods, but you would love to see them!
•BE CONSISTENT: You set the tone for your new lifestyle. If you are wishy-washy about it and are not consistent, people will not take you seriously.
•Your success is up to you!
THERE ARE ONE-THOUSAND REASONS . . .
To try this recipe. These days, store brands usually contain notoriously unhealthy ingredients – GMO soybean or canola oil, high fructose corn syrup and natural flavors to same a few – but no fear! It’s incredibly simple to make at home, and oh-so-much tastier, too.
• 1 cup Grapeseed oil Vegenaise
• 2 tablespoons organic ketchup
• 1 tablespoon Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
• 2 teaspoons organic maple syrup or raw honey
• 2 tablespoons relish or chopped pickles
• 2 tablespoons finely minced white onion
• ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
• ⅛ teaspoon pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Taste and add more relish if desired.
The word food is questionable, since the bread-like and meat-like substances have not molded or spoiled in any way. Bugs won’t even bother with it. Please think twice about giving this to your kids. You have a choice, but they don’t. We truly are what we eat.”
