Kin's Settlement "Ladoga"

"Through love, we advance in creation,
Preserving the flame of love and residing in it."

Anastasia Chuvashova

Ladoga is a settlement that consists of Kin's Domains, each of which is 1–2 ha in size. The total area of the settlement is 119 ha. Ladoga is situated on a plain in an area of neglected meadows, in Usolsky District, on the natural boundary of the Tselota River.

Nearby is a mixed forest, which surrounds the settlement on all sides. And two kilometres away is a natural, warm lake, where fish abound. Here, according to the plans, we intend to locate a vacation centre and a fish farm. In the centre of the settlement is located the Cultural Centre, where the Common House has already been constructed; we are planning to erect a school building and craft workshops. Also in the works are a sports-health centre, first-aid station, food depot, and store.

Loving Hearts Gathering

The Ladoga Non-Commercial Partnership was formed in May 2003. Some of the settlers work in the city, in addition, the active construction of the village made it possible to organize two construction crews. The residents are also engaged in creative work: they paint pictures, carve wood, install ovens, bake healthy, unleavened bread, sew, embroider, are involved in the development of their children, publish a newspaper, and many other things.

Winter Holidays

From the very founding of the settlement, holidays have been celebrated annually: Earth Day (23 June), the Ivan Kupala Holiday, Maslenitsa, New Year.

In November 2009, the Ladoga Musical Group took part in Youth Day together with the Elan School. And twice, in 2008–2009, in July and August, Loving Hearts Gatherings have been organized for those who are seeking their soulmates.

"Ladoga" next generation

In June 2008, a Children's Ecology Camp was held over the course of three weeks. Here, children learned to care for themselves and others, acquired many useful skills. In August 2008, they took part in the Orchard-Garden-Country Home oblast-wide exhibition. They were awarded a certificate.

In July 2008 and 2009, they took part in the Angarsky Arbat municipal celebration. In 2009, they took part in the district tourist gathering and took second place. They were the winners of the district competition with their project "The Revival of Folk Traditions."

The languages of the peoples of the world are heard in Starosele, a settlement of kin's domains

Today we would like to write about those who already live in the settlement.

Dmitry Sinelnikov's story.

The founding of Starosele, as our settlement is called, dates back to the end of 1999. As far as I am aware, this was the first settlement created according to the books of Vladimir Megre, created on the site of a village with the same name, a village with roots extending far into the past, almost to the Neolithic period.

Even up to the present, the pride of Starosele has been an ancient site, located in the centre of our settlement. But during the times of Catherine the Great, though not for long, Starosele was the main administrative city in the area. During the Great Patriotic War, the village was burned down, then underwent Khrushchev's collectivization, and, by the middle of the 1980s, the village had no local residents. But in 1988 my father and I arrived in the village, which had become almost deserted at the time, and where only a couple of elderly families would come for the summer. In 1999 my father came across the books of Vladimir Megre, and we set off in a new and, as it turned out, the right direction in the search of like-minded individuals.

Almost immediately (after 2000), the first settlers bought up some administrative lands remaining from the former village, and the next year, from the administration's reserves, we were able to acquire yet another meadow. During the next two years, the colonization came to a halt because of the impossibility of acquiring and changing the category of the adjacent agricultural purpose lands.

We do not have a charter, and all organizational issues concerning the construction of roads, schools, and community structures are decided informally at common celebrations. Newly arriving settlers initially decide for themselves whether this arrangement is acceptable for them, and either remain, accepting for themselves these simple rules for living, or they continue the search for "their own" settlement. Therefore, notwithstanding the fears of many, no disagreements occur even without the presence of a charter.

Over the 11 years of the existence of the settlement, more than fifty houses have been built, not including bath-houses and other buildings. Fourteen families live here year round, and approximately just as many are in the process of moving, and there are roughly the same number of summer residents.

The majority of our families have a number of children. The question of education is being resolved by using home schooling and going to a general public school once a week. The children are doing significantly better in their studies than children of the same age who attend school on a daily basis.

As fate would have it, more than half of the families living in our settlement are from different countries in Europe. The basic group from Germany, as a rule, is made up of our fellow-countrymen, who lived for about 20 years abroad and have found their homeland in the settlement of Starosele in Smolensk Oblast.

In many families, the children did not know Russian or knew it very poorly. The people from Germany came to Starosele in a large group for the first time in 2003 (Starosele was founded in 1999), in Germany they had a readers' club, so practically the entire club came.

The primary trait of people living far from their future Kin's Domain was that, not having the possibility of being in their domain for short visits, they quickly decided to move house. And it just happened that our first permanent residents were the people from abroad, in spite of complications involving documents, visas, and passports.

For example, in one of our families the children do not have Russian citizenship (at the present they have a residence permit), so they were required to go to the border with Belarus regularly in order to exit and then again enter Russia. In another family, the wife had never been a citizen of Russia. But in spite of all the difficulties, our people quickly stood on their own feet and set up a robust household.

The Molzam family makes wonderful milk products: milk (goat, cow), sour cream, cottage cheese, butter, cheese, honey, eggs, moreover of good German quality. It is interesting that the products are consumed not only within the settlement, but are eagerly purchased by restaurants in the neighboring cities. The daughter and son-in-law, and now already a grandson, do the baking for the entire settlement—bread (including unleavened bread), tarts, vegetarian samosa, pizza, cheese cakes, cakes—moreover the young people stayed in Germany for another year following their parents' move to earn money for their own house.

Maksim Fayfer produces fine furniture, breeds dogs and horses professionally, and is involved in the development of permaculture.

Pasha Layer became famous for the pond he dug out by hand, and the bath-house he built on his own from logs.

Vitaly Amelin acquired a drilling rig and supplies the settlers with water.

Dima Podlinov moved here with his wife and four children, and now there are already eight of them—two children were born in Starosele.

And these are just a few examples. Besides this, all the people are excellent builders. Often they are asked, "They probably have some remaining funds, rented houses, apartments..."

No, the people do indeed live on what their Kin's Domain provides.

With regard to the fact that the inhabitants of our settlement were those who once lived abroad, we noted the tendency that many families who did not live in Russia were interested in Starosele from the very beginning. And it is understandable why: after all, the majority of our residents speak several languages, and this in turn is very important because many people have children who do not know Russian or know it very poorly, and, if only in the beginning, this makes it easier to communicate.

Not long ago a couple arrived from Australia, and a young man is coming from Denmark in the near future. Families from Germany have already appeared on our new meadows of Mezhdureche and Izluchina, and a family from France is interested.

And from my personal experience I can say that it is very interesting to live in our settlement, after all, our former countrymen are returning, and you can take the very best from all cultures!

"Awakening" - a film by Aliya Nazarbayeva, the daughter of the President of Kazakhstan

Aliya Nazarbaeva

Just released is "Awakening", a remarkable documentary film made by Aliya Nazarbayeva, the daughter of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan!

The film raises the problems of the lack of produce and clean water, and environmental pollution.

In January 2012, Aliya Nazarbayeva invited Vladimir Nikolaevich Megre to Almaty in Kazakhstan. Since then, Aliya Nazarbayeva has acquired a 300 ha plot of land. There are plans for the creation of a new settlement on this land. The plan for the settlement is being prepared by Sepp Holzer.

Aliya Nazarbayeva's film "Awakening" is the first stage in the implementation of a great educational project whose main objective is to draw the attention of Kazakhstanis to problems associated with the ecology of our country.

Aliya Nazarbayeva, the originator of this concept, is planning to film several more similar documentaries that talk about the necessity of a transition to a green economic way of thinking.

The film "Awakening" was successfully presented at the United Nations world summit Rio+20, which took place in Brazil in June of this year. At the summit, Kazakhstan promoted the idea of a "green" economy and "green" development, as well as the initiative to create a partnership program called "Green Bridge" and a global ecological energy strategy, whose development has already been initiated.

Nurlan Kapparov, the Minister of Environmental Protection:

"On the instructions of the President, we have begun the development of a country-wide strategy for Kazakhstan's transition to a green economy, and our task is to analyze sectors of the economy and to understand in which sectors we shall first begin to introduce a green economy, in which sectors this will be done later, but the President's decision has already been made."

Aliya Nazarbayeva:

"This is just the first stage, this is just the beginning of a large project, an educational project. And, of course, I very much hope that this film will 'hook' many of our Kazakhstanis in a good way, make them think about more profound, important things than they do now, as we are living more in a consumer world. We are consuming all the time, using and using, but we do not want to give back anything in return, while nature, it seems, will some day run dry. And for that reason, it is very important to know how to restore and be grateful!"

Tips for Setting Up Your Homeschool

Homeschooling can be a truly gratifying experience for both the parent and child. On one hand, you're helping your child discover their potential. On the other, you're rediscovering your own intellect.

While homeschooling laws vary from state to state, homeschooling is legal everywhere in America.

Whereas the curriculum, state laws, and supplies needed are pretty much set in stone, the setup of the learning environment you create in your home is totally up to you.

With this in mind, here are some tips to create a stimulating homeschooling environment.

Classroom Furniture

Your decision to teach your child from the comforts of your own home does not mean your class space shouldn't look the part.

Adding classroom furniture to your child's learning space will not only help add legitimacy to your homeschooling efforts, it will also provide your child with the tools that promote a positive learning environment.

Some of the furniture needed to homeschool your child includes:

- Dry erase markers & board
- Computer desk
- Bulletin board
- Standard desk
- Chairs
- Bookcases & shelves
- Organization & storage containers

Once you have the furniture you need to homeschool your child, the next step is to plan.

Lesson Plans

Technology has given the ultimate assist to parents seeking to plan a comprehensive curriculum for their children. By using the Internet, parents can access free curriculum guides and lesson planners.

The free curriculum guides provided on the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum website are also accompanied by links to free video that compliments the curriculum guides.

While it's best to find a local homeschooling support group in your area to assist you with questions and issues that arise, many questions can be answered on online forums such as Homeschool World.

Online Academic Portfolio

An online academic portfolio is a great way to showcase your child's academic progress and achievements. Through the use of this portfolio, you can create a permanent online archive of your child's academic development that includes:

- Grades
- Research papers
- Evaluations
- Published articles

Academic portfolios can also assist your child in the future as potential employers can easily search and access your achievements and certifications online.

From my personal experience, many of the students I have met who were homeschooled were extremely intelligent and were well-adjusted socially, even though they did not socialize in large groups of same-age children growing up. Although, to keep their kids socialized (and physically fit), many homeschooling parents have their kids participate in community sports leagues.

If you're up for the commitment and want to build a stronger bond with your child, you may want to consider homeschooling as an educational option. With the right tools, setting and supplies, it is possible to make your home a great environment for learning.

Our Homeschool Downsizes

By Joanie

We've been homeschooling our youngest, Ryan, for 3 years now. In the first few years, I went a little overboard in the enthusiasm department. I set up a school in our living room and dining room space, that could have comfortably accommodated an army of children.

We had it all. Each subject had its own area and center.

Here is a close-up of the math center.

We even had a beautifully stocked and categorized "library", complete with comfy chairs.

And where, might you ask, did we end up doing school EVERY blasted day? The kitchen table, of course! Or snuggled up on the couch in the family room, with nary a bookcase, school supply or desk in sight! Neither one of us felt compelled to spend time in that formal classroom.

It was time for a change. Everything you see in the above photos, has now been relocated. A few things made it into Ryan's room or storage and many others were given away for our friends to enjoy.

So, what's left? We're down to just one bookcase in the kitchen with the bare essentials; our books, papers and school supplies. It's heaven! The serenity and focus that came with the downsize has been incredible. I was so worried about not "doing it right" that I overcompensated with way too much stuff.

Now, without all of the clutter, we have more space to think and breathe. We are both much happier! There is less of that "have-to" feeling and more of an excitement about learning. Lesson learned.

Whether you homeschool or help with homework every night, where's your family's favorite spot for learning?


Maximizing Success in Homeschooling

By Candice Childs, Family Academy co-founder

Written guarantees to successful homeschooling are not issued by Family Academy, but we have created a program that will maximize the homeschooling family's potential to succeed over the long-haul. Parents, however, must remain the day-to-day teacher, and thus hold several of the critical keys to success.

John Holt, an early forerunner to the modern homeschooling movement and author of Teach Your Own and How Children Learn commented that the mandatory ingredient to successful homeschooling is: the parent must like the child and communicate an enjoyment of being around him. Without this, even the most dynamic homeschool program or curriculum will fail.

When parent send their children off to school for the better part of each weekday, their children's personalities often change. This is due to the wall of self-protection many erect to survive the institutional atmosphere. They become someone other than who they were before stepping into the mass production/ assembly line approach to education called school.

Inundated with peer values and culture and the institutional system where adults are often perceived as the "enemy," and falling into the "us and them" mentality, these children often become unlikable.

Once removed from the traditional system, parents typically find the delightful side of the children's soul resurfaces within the safety and freedom that only a loving family can provide. Students leaving traditional schooling may need up to one month per year of institutionalism to become "themselves" again.

If the student has never been in school, this "de-tox" from the school/peer culture can be avoided. This is not to say all home-schooled children are utterly and completely likable. Parents must still build upon experiences in their children's lives for nurturing integrity and positive character qualities within their children, as well as provide training for spiritual growth.

Homeschooling certainly allows more opportunity to accomplish these critical needs. Even without schools and peers, Adam and Eve's children were hardly perfect. To be a good parent, whether homeschooling or not, is no easy task and requires much prayer, wisdom and humility.

Other key qualities a teaching parent needs for successful homeschooling are:

Refusing to let the clock, schedule, or text dictate or "trump" the student's learning needs.

This does not mean that time-management and focus become unimportant, but failure is certain if the student does not grasp the concepts or master the skills in the current lesson or chapter, particularly in a skillsequenced subject like math.

An understanding of what the learner already knows

To bore the children with "stuff" already learned, or to discourage the children with material beyond the current level of understanding will recreate the traditional schooling experience for many students. The FA Teacher Consultant can help assess the child's skills so the teaching parent knows where to begin and/or where the "learning gaps" are.

Showing and doing (rather than merely telling) while allowing ample time for self-directed learning

Hands-on experiences allow students to use visually, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic sense to receive information into their minds. The more senses used, the greater the understanding.

Giving the learner time to feel secure with new information

Research has shown that most people need at least seven exposures to information before "getting it." A parent needs to remember that a lesson taught the day before will need several reviews before expecting the student to remember the specific information, skill, or concept (so re-read this at least seven times over the next year!!)

Measuring understanding by questions initiated by the learner rather than by tests

Student questions, when encouraged by the wise teaching parent, create a window to the student's mind and will often enrich the student's understanding and analytical skills because the motivated student learned deeply as he hears and discovers the answer to his own question(s).

Jonas Salk, who made the great scientific discovery of the polio vaccine, lauded his discerning mother for encouraging him to look at all of life and its experiences with three questions: What happened? Why did it happen? How can I use this information I the future?

Exercising patience when learning is slow

Reflect on the multiple times a parent will "gaga-, da-dad, ma-ma" in delightful "dialogue" with their baby, using happy and responsive facial expressions in ongoing encounters. Insights into the learning process can come from recalling the various factors used to develop the child's initial ability to communicate.

Time and review with love, joy, and patience will help from teaching adding to algebra, from reciting the alphabet to writing an annotated bibliography, from following a recipe for chocolate child cookies to formulating an experiment and applying the scientific method.

Even with the perfect Teacher, the disciples continually failed to understand until much later what they were to learn, do, and become.

Modeling an enjoyment of learning

Children in American learn English (or some facsimile) while children in Japan learn Japanese. Modeling is the key to language development as well as to al learning. Children who see their parents taking on new and challenging learning experiences are more willing to take the risks learning requires, particularly with challenging concepts and skills.

Thus, homeschooling success rests critically upon the relationship between the parent and the child and less on specific teaching techniques or tools. Parents are the child's first teacher and can be their best. Love and caring communicate and teach to the heart and soul of the child.

Learning to "read" their children remains the teaching parent's primary assignment, more than getting their child to read the school books. To some degree, success is a relative term. Parents can hardly do worse than the public schools, and in most cases will do better. All of the current research both in education and in character development has proven the superiority of homeschooling.

The Family Academy Teacher Consultant's job is to come along side of the teaching parent, providing guidance and direction to empower the parent to maximum successes, which ultimately belongs to the parent and their student.

Homeschooling Tips : Homeschooling: Getting Started

Health Benefits of Calcium

Calcium is an essential mineral for healthy bones, gums and teeth. Doctors often recommend women to take calcium supplements, who show early signs of bone problems, such as osteoporosis or osteopenia.

Strengthens Bones

Calcium strengthens backbone and ensures the right shape to the body apart from alleviating the risks of back pain. Calcium helps to keep the bones in its good shape and prevents many skeletal complaints like arthritis and osteoporosis which could hamper the free movement apart from being extremely painful.

Prevents Obesity

Calcium efficiently helps in maintaining an optimum body weight in both males and females. If there is any deficit in calcium in your diet, the body shall tend to release parathyroid hormone, which in turn stimulates the bones to release calcium into your blood stream, thereby keeping the balance. On the other side, parathyroid hormone also stimulates the production of fat and prevents its break down, which can again make you obese. So ensure that you are taking the right amount of calcium, so that obese does not creep in with other related health hazards.

Protects Cardiac Muscles

Calcium protects your heart muscles. Sufficient amounts of calcium help cardiac muscles to do the contraction and relaxation properly. Calcium also helps the nervous system to maintain the proper pressure in your arteries. If there is a calcium drop, a hormone called calcitrol is released which contracts the smooth muscles of the arteries, thereby increasing the blood pressure. Cardiac muscles need extracellular calcium ions for contraction. When the intracellular concentration of calcium increases, the calcium ions gather together to the protein troponin that stimulates extracellular fluid and the intracellular stores, even the skeletal muscle, which is only activated by calcium stored in the sarcoplasmic reticulum.

Prevents Colon Cancer

Adequate calcium assures you to alleviate the overall risk of colon cancer and suppresses the growth of polyps that can lead to cancer. Calcium supplementation reduces the risk of adenomas, also non as nonmalignant tumors in the colon. This is actually a precursor to colon cancer, however it's still not known if calcium intake minimizes the cancer risk completely. The excess calcium that's left in your intestines after your body absorbs what it needs. On its way through the colon, this unabsorbed calcium is believed to bind with cancer promoters so they're excreted together from the body. Studies have shown that both food sources of calcium and calcium supplements provide this protective effect. Calcium supplements should be taken in liquid form because liquid vitamins absorb 5 times better than the pills.

Prevents Premenstrual Blues

Adequate amount of calcium lessens the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome like dizziness, mood swings, hypertension and so on. Low level of calcium might trigger the release of hormones, which are responsible premenstrual mood swings including irritability, and depression amongst others.

Prevents Kidney Stones

Kidney Stones are actually the crystallized deposits of calcium and other minerals in the human urinary tract. The most common form of kidney stones is the oxalate stones. Previously, it was thought that high calcium intakes or high calcium absorption develops kidney stones, but the latest studies show that high dietary calcium intakes decrease the hazards of kidney stones considerably. In short, dietary calcium does not cause kidney stones, but the excess calcium present in water that result in kidney stones. Other factors like high oxalate consumption from leafy vegetables like kale and spinach, and reduced fluid consumption can prove to be a big cause for kidney stones.

Ensures a Healthy Alkaline pH Level

Junk foods, excess sugars and preserved food items contributes in forming acidity in the body, which in turn could give rise to various disease conditions like cancer, kidney stones and hypertension. Calcium helps to maintain a healthy pH level, thereby improving your vitality and overall health.

Controls Blood Pressure

Some researches declared that a vegetarian diet with high amount of calcium, magnesium and potassium, and fiber will show you reduced blood pressure. While other researchers concluded with different opinions and said that increased calcium intake results in hypertension. Later it was seen that the reason for such assorted results was because these studies tested the effect of single nutrients rather than the food sources having that nutrient content. National Institutes of Health conducted a research called "Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH)". The "typical American" diet was compared with two altered diets that were rich in fruits-and-vegetables and a combo "DASH" diet stuffed with fruits, vegetables, and calcium. The results showed increased calcium intakes results in decreased blood pressure.

Maintains Healthy Teeth and Gums

Calcium protects your teeth by keeping the jaw bone strong and sturdy all through your life, which in turn ensures tight fitting teeth where bacteria cannot thrive. Thus, before your teeth and gums start giving trouble ensure a calcium rich diet regularly. Calcium intake should be high especially from tender age, so that your kid naturally grows up with strong teeth.

Helps in Transportation of Nutrients

Calcium helps in the easy movement of nutrients across cell membranes.

Symptoms of Calcium Deficiency

Realizing calcium deficiency in the body is quite easy. Its when your muscles ache and twitches, or you get sudden cramps and spasm; palpitations, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, loose teeth and gum diseases, insomnia, premenstrual cramps, tetany, hypertension and arthritis also indicate calcium deficiency. Often many children suffer from rickets the bones become weak and flexible, they have bowed legs, sunken chests and beaded ribs; they have not been nourished with calcium from birth itself. Thus, regular calcium supply is very important in growing children and teenagers as it can substantially reduce the risks of osteoporosis in old age. This bone ailment is common in one out of every three women and in one man in every 12, above 50years of age.

The Many Forms of Calcium

by Kimberly Johnson,
Cordata Co-op Wellness Assistant Manager

As a team member in our Cordata Wellness department, I field questions about calcium every day. People commonly ask, "Which form is the most absorbable?" and wonder what the differences are between the various options. To help clear up some of the confusion associated with this important mineral, I've compiled information on the common forms of supplemental calcium available.

The most basic form of calcium available is calcium carbonate. This form must go through approximately 12 chemical reactions in order to become a form the body can use, and is usually sourced from limestone. At 40 percent elemental calcium, it is the densest form available; however with an absorption rate of 7 to 8 percent it is the least absorbable. The side effects of calcium carbonate may include alkalization of the stomach, and an increased risk of kidney stones. Calcium carbonate must be taken with food and is not recommended for anyone who has low stomach acid levels.

One of the most popular forms available is calcium citrate (the calcium salt of citric acid). It contains 21 percent elemental calcium, so although there is less calcium per pill than the carbonate form, it is better absorbed. Calcium citrate is the preferred form of calcium for anyone with low stomach acid levels. There are no known side effects with this form.

Calcium lactate is the calcium salt of lactic acid, and changes to calcium bicarbonate (the type used by the body) in one chemical step. It is highly soluble in water and does not depend on an acidic environment, so it is another form that is ideal for those with low stomach acid. This is also the form of calcium found in milk.

Calcium phosphate/calcium hydrogen phosphate or microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) is a form of calcium that is found in human bone structure and tooth enamel. The source of MCHA supplements is usually bovine bone. A 1995 randomized placebo-controlled study of 40 people in Europe found that it was more effective than calcium carbonate in slowing bone loss. Many MCHA supplements also contain minerals (magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, potassium), vitamins (vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin K2 as MK-7), and trace minerals (boron, silica, strontium, and vanadium), all of which are necessary to build healthy bone matrix.

There is an exciting new trend in calcium supplementation that involves using plant forms of calcium, including those sourced from sea vegetables: lithothamnium calcareum, lithothamnium coralloides, and algas calcareous. Because these forms of calcium are so well absorbed by the body, lower doses are quite effective in achieving gains in bone mass.

Along with the form of calcium you decide to take, it is also important to include the vitamins and minerals that will facilitate the proper growth of bone tissue. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is an essential component of healthy bone, and can be taken separately or in combination with calcium. In addition, 60 percent of the body's magnesium is stored in bone tissue, and it is an important element in the formation of bone protein.

In regard to dosage, it is best to take calcium in smaller doses throughout the day to aid absorption. Avoid taking more than 500 milligrams of calcium at one time and allow 4 to 6 hours between doses. Depending on your age and sex, an adult requires between 1,000 and 1,300 mg of calcium daily.

As always, you should consult your health care practitioner who can help you decide which form of calcium, at what dosage, is best for you. The Coop carries all of the forms of calcium mentioned. Stop by our Wellness departments for help in selecting the product that will work for you.

Sesame Seeds - Your Best Food Source of Calcium

by Yuri Elkaim

Sesame Seeds - Your Best Food Source of Calcium. Indeed it's true!

Dairy is not your best source of calcium. It has never has been and never will be. Unfortunately, billions of dollars of milk and dairy advertisements from the dairy industry would have you believe otherwise.

After all, how would you know that sesame seeds or green leafies are better sources of calcium than milk if no one ever told you over and over again?

Well, now you know. Now, let's have a look at why.

Why You Shouldn't Drink Milk for Calcium

First off, where do cows get their calcium from? Grass!

Cow's milk provides roughly 118 mg of calcium/100 g. Considering that the recommended daily intake for calcium is between 800-1,200 mg (and assuming that milk/dairy is a balanced source of calcium - which it is not), you would need to drink 0.9 - 1.2 liters of 2% milk per day to meet this requirement.

That's a whopping four to five 250 ml glasses of milk per day!

That's crazy! Especially, considering that more than 70% of the population has some type of sensitivity to milk - whether it be its lactose or casein content.

So forget what you've heard about drinking more milk. Research has even shown that the countries that have the highest dairy consumption (UK, Finland, Sweden, USA) also have the highest incidence of osteoporosis. These northern countries (but not the USA) also enjoy less vitamin D from limited sun exposure; a factor that is important to consider with regards to bone health.

Here are a few more reasons to reconsider drinking milk for calcium:

1. The ratio of calcium to phosphorus in human milk is 2.35 : 1 but it is only 1.27 : 1 in cow's milk. This is an important ratio given that phosphorus impairs calcium absorption. More phosphorus = less calcium absorption!

2. Cow's milk has 3x more protein than human milk making it the most highly acidic food you can consume. More acid in the body = calcium loss from the bones! Don't get me wrong, cow's milk is great to meet the needs of a calf, but not a human. After all, cows grow to be roughly 3-4x heavier than humans - they need that extra protein!

The Healthier Calcium Alternatives

As the title of this post mentions, sesame seeds are your best food source of calcium.

Those little seeds that make up tahini (and are a part of hummus) provide a whopping 1,160 mg of calcium/100 g serving! That's about 10x the amount of calcium vs. milk for the same serving size.

[There is a little bit of controversy about sesame seeds and calcium, because there is a substantial difference between the calcium content of hulled versus unhulled sesame seeds. When the hulls remain on the seeds, one tablespoon of sesame seeds will contains about 88 milligrams of calcium. When the hulls are removed, this same tablespoon will contain about 37 milligrams (about 60% less). Tahini—a spreadable paste made from ground sesame seeds—is usually made from hulled seeds (seeds with the hulls removed, called kernels), and so it will usually contain this lower amount of calcium.

The term "sesame butter" can sometimes refer to tahini made from sesame seed kernels, or it can also be used to mean a seed paste made from whole sesame seeds—hull included.

Although the seed hulls provide an additional 51 milligrams of calcium per tablespoon of seeds, the calcium found in the hulls appears in large part to be found in the form of calcium oxalate. This form of calcium is different than the form found in the kernels, and it is a less absorbable form of calcium. So even though a person would be likely to get more calcium from sesame seeds or sesame seed butter that contained the hulls, there is a question about how much more calcium would be involved. It would defintely be less than the 51 additional milligrams found in the seed hulls. And there would also, of course, be a question about the place of hull-containing sesame seeds on an oxalate-restricted diet. ]

Excerption from "Sesame seeds" article, sourced from http://www.whfoods.com/

Other Rich Sources of Calcium

Claiming the silver medal for calcium content is kelp. This incredible sea vegetable (which can easily be sprinkled on salads and soups) provides an amazing 1,093 mg of calcium/100 g serving.

Kelp is also one of the highest sources of incredibly rare and health promoting minerals found deep in the sea bed. One such mineral is iodine - a critical mineral for those who suffer from a malfunctioning thyroid gland. Add kelp to your diet and your health will improve dramatically!

After these 2 super-sources of calcium, your next bet is any green leafy vegetable ranging from green grasses to kale and broccoli. Anything green provides tremendous nutrition, alkalinity, and high amounts of calcium.

Remember, when products containing calcium are heated, the calcium transforms into nonabsorbable form. At best it is cleanced away from your body. At worst, it is accumulated in your kidneys forming kidneys stones.

The Hidden Danger of Teeth Whitening

by Dr. Al Sears

Who doesn't want a sparkling smile?

It's no secret that good teeth can help enhance your appearance and boost your overall self-confidence. And for the most part, people define "good teeth" as bright, white, and stain-free.

Did you know that teeth whitening is the number one most requested cosmetic procedure in the United States?1 And it doesn't show any sign of slowing down.

People have been able to take advantage of professional whitening services from their dentists for over 50 years now. And today, you can find whitening strips, gels, trays, and lights anywhere from your dentist's office to your local grocery store. They're quick, easy to use, and can be very effective at removing unsightly stains.

Perfect, right?

Not really.

Most of these products contain some kind of peroxide to remove the stains. In some cases, the hydrogen peroxide, along with a variety of other chemicals found in these products, can cause alarming problems such as gum irritation, tooth sensitivity, and – in some cases – tooth decay.

Yep. These products that you may be using to make your teeth look better could make them rot and fall out.

Overuse of at-home whitening kits has some serious risks. Not only can they cause over-sensitivity, they can also damage tissues and wear the enamel down so much that your teeth look almost see-through and very unnatural. Eventually, they can become odd shades of blue and gray.2

You see, the off-white color of teeth that most people find unsightly and unattractive is the color that our teeth are meant to look. It's really a good thing.

The color of your teeth is based on the amount of calcium in your teeth's enamel. The more calcium you have, the more color is in your teeth. But, when you use bleach, you're using a product that contains abrasives so it can scrub away stains left by food, drinks, and other things like smoking. But, it can also scrub away the enamel on your teeth.

This is called demineralization.

Demineralization happens when substances that you put in your mouth starts to dissolve your tooth's enamel. It can also damage the enamel's calcium, which can lead to tooth decay.3

Tooth decay can cause a variety of issues including pain, tooth loss, infection, chewing problems, and serious infection that can travel to other parts of your body and make you very ill.

Also, it's important to remember that bleaching products are fairly new on the market. We still don't know any of the long-term side effects that may occur.

But, if you'd like to get a more dazzling smile, why don't you give some natural alternatives a try:

  1. STRAWBERRIES. Mash up strawberries into a pulp and mix with a little sea salt and rub on teeth.
  2. BAKING SODA. Put a little on your tooth brush with your regular toothpaste.
  3. CRUNCHY VEGETABLES. Celery, carrots, broccoli, and cucumbers are naturally abrasive and can help scrub away stains.

  • Watch video: Warning!! Dangers of Teeth Whitening Products;
  • Naturally whiten your teeth with these eight tips

    by Alex Malinsky

    Dental hygiene is an important part of keeping healthy, but maintaining a white smile is also a great way to show that you take pride in your appearance and wish to keep your body in as good of shape as possible. Because dental problems are correlated with other health risks, keeping your smile as bright and clean as you can is an important step in keeping your entire body healthy. Today's market offers a great deal of dental hygiene products, but many of them are loaded with harmful chemicals. To keep your teeth naturally white, here are five ways to safely brighten your smile.

    1. EAT CRUNCHY FOODS. Many fruits and vegetables, such as apples, carrots, celery, and pears, can naturally clean and whiten teeth due to their acidic nature. The crunchier the food, the more abrasive it is and the cleaner it will get your teeth. If you adhere to a natural diet, you most likely already consume a fair number of fruits and vegetables, but keep in mind that you need to eat them in their whole form in order to benefit from whiter teeth. For example, bite into your next apple or peach instead of cutting it up or running it through the juicer.

    2. UP THE (Grass-Fed, Organic, Raw) DAIRY. Recent scientific evidence indicates that cheese, milk, and yogurt contain minerals that strengthen teeth and improve their appearance. Among these minerals are calcium and phosphorus, which enhance teeth's enamel. With stronger enamel, your teeth will be able to better withstand the other natural remedies on this list.

    3. EAT MORE STRAWBERRIES. Strawberries contain malic acid, which removes discolorations on the surface of the teeth. Additionally, the berries' texture helps buff the enamel, creating a brighter, smoother appearance. To heighten the effects of strawberries as a natural teeth whitener, combine a crushed berry with one half of a teaspoon of baking soda. Once the mixture is complete, apply and leave on teeth for five minutes. Only do this once in a while, to keep the enamel of the teeth from breaking down.

    4. USE BAKING SODA. The literature on baking soda is diverse, as some professionals say to use it often and others say not to use it at all, but studies show that limited use of baking soda can enhance the whiteness of teeth. Periodically, utilize a baking soda and salt mixture to clean and whiten teeth. Strawberries may also be incorporated with baking soda for a more natural solution.

    5. DRINK WITH A STRAW. Even if you follow a natural diet, the beverages that you drink have the tendency to stain teeth. To avoid as many stains as possible, use a straw to draw beverages into your mouth, instead of having them slide over your teeth. The less contact your teeth have with damaging substances, the whiter they will be.

    6. CHOMP, CHOMP. Snacking on something naturally chewy (like raisins or sugar free gum) encourages the production of saliva, which acts as a natural mouthwash, washing away stains and left behind food particles. Just make sure to floss every day to clean between the teeth!

    7. GET ELECTRIC. So, this may not be an all-natural or DIY tip, but another great way to keep teeth as bright and white as possible is to use an electric toothbrush since the rpm is designed to break up stains that manual toothbrushes can't budge.

    8. GET PROFESSIONAL CLEAN. As always onE of the best ways to keep your teeth as white as possible is by having regular teeth cleanings since dental hygienists are trained to remove stubborn dental stains, which not only leaves the teeth instantly whiter and the mouth healthier, but also makes the surface of the teeth more susceptible to the actual process of whitening.

    Maintaining a bright, white smile is something that today's culture values highly; however, it is also an indication that you have maintained healthy teeth. Be careful, though, because teeth are fragile. Using too much baking soda, eating too many acidic fruits, or trying too hard to whiten your smile can cause great amounts of damage to your enamel, gums, and other parts of your mouth. Remember to keep a natural approach by using all of these tips in moderation.

    An Interview with Seth Itzkan: Using Holistic Management to Address Desertification and Climate Change

    By Carol Dreibelbis

    NAME: Seth Itzkan

    AFFILIATION: President of Planet-TECH Associates, a consultancy focusing on trends and innovations.

    BIO: Seth has 25 years of experience consulting with private and public agencies on strategies for success in changing times. He is interested in the mitigation of climate change and is investigating new approaches to the problem, particularly focusing on the role of soils and grassland restoration through "holistic management."

    In 2011, Seth spent six weeks at the Africa Center for Holistic Management in northwest Zimbabwe, the sister organization of the Savory Institute in Colorado. While in Zimbabwe, he saw firsthand the restoration of degraded lands through improved land and livestock management. Since his return to the United States, he has advocated for holistic management to be considered as a methodology to address both desertification and global warming.

    Seth recently gave a TEDx talk on the topic of "Reversing Global Warming with Livestock?" and presented at the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy (CIERP) at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. With colleagues at Tufts, he is helping to organize a conference in January 2013 on holistic management, titled "Creating the Future We Want: Holistic Solutions to Global Challenges." Seth is co-manager of the Google group, Soil-Age, which explores the opportunities and potential impacts of soil restoration. He is a graduate of the Tufts College of Engineering and the University of Houston Masters of Science Program in Studies of the Future.

    What is holistic livestock management, and how does this idea challenge conventional grazing systems?

    Holistic management seeks to restore grassland ecosystems by using livestock as a proxy for the wild herds of grazing ruminants that the prairies and savannas of the world co-evolved with and depend on. Due to the pressures of predation, natural herds form tightly packed groups that are continuously on the go, moving in a pattern that is unlike conventional livestock management. This natural herd action is essential to plant grazing and nutrient and water recycling and distribution. It was the abundance, not the paucity, of these grass-eating creatures that sustained the verdant regions of most continental interiors. Thus, holistic management recognizes that fully functioning grassland ecosystems cannot be sustained without herds of grazing animals.

    Recognizing the severing of the ecosystem that resulted from the decimation of the great herds, holistic management attempts to restore balance by moving livestock in a manner that simulates the pack density and mobility of the wild grazers. This helps recreate the desirable ruminant impact while eliminating deleterious effects of conventional livestock management. It is achieved through adherence to a grazing plan that stimulates plant growth, provides natural fertilization, and keeps the herds from returning to eat the same plants until they are fully re-grown.

    Holistic management poses two major challenges. First, it challenges the idea that conventional grazing—including keeping livestock sedentary and corralled in permanent fixtures—is sustainable. Second, it challenges the idea that the weight of livestock is all that matters to the rancher. Holistic management strives for economic, social, and environmental success factors. By focusing on more than one variable, we can see improvements across all three. Natural systems, like grasslands with ruminants, cannot be managed with reductionist thinking. There must be a holistic framework.

    What are the indicators for improved ecosystem health under holistic management techniques?

    More grass cover:This means an increase in the density of the plants. In a healthy grassland system, there should be no space between plants—i.e., no bare ground. Any water from the sky should land on leaves, not dirt. Achieving this state using livestock is possible through holistic management, even in areas of low seasonal rainfall. When animal movement is done properly, plant growth is stimulated through grazing at the opportune time, soil health is enhanced with essential nutrients, and the land is "impacted" through hoof action, trampling plant litter and seeds into the ground along with manure to assure cover for new growth and moisture retention.

    Increased surface water:Increased surface water is one of the most important indicators of ecosystem recovery. In low, seasonal-rainfall grassland and savanna environments, the measure of surface water health that a land manager can readily see is how long springs or watering holes sustain into the dry season. When the soil is healthy, it is rich with organic matter that absorbs water, pulling it down and replenishing the water table. When soil is depleted, rainwater flows away, creating gullies and carrying topsoil with it. The erosion process can drain the water table. However, the opposite is also true. Improved soil health will replenish the water table. As this happens, the change in surface water will become apparent: streams and surface pools remain wet longer into the dry season and may also widen. Additionally, grass cover in riparian areas will extend to the edge of streams, and there will be an increase in aquatic plants and animals.

    Enhanced plant and wildlife diversity: As grasslands recover, plant and wildlife diversity increases. This is driven by the changing biological composition of the soil—the bacterial and fungal communities that hide away carbon and exchange nutrients with roots. This soil community is enhanced by ruminant manure, which is loaded with water, minerals, and billions of essential bacteria that serve as "reinforcements" to their fellow microbes in the ground, particularly important in the dry season. As plants diversify, so will the bugs, birds, and larger wildlife.

    Eradication of problem or invasive species:As properly timed grazing restores the grassland soils to their prior state, new conditions will favor the native species. Invasive species that had benefited from depleted soil will no longer be advantaged. Additionally, livestock, including cattle and goats, can be used as tools to directly eradicate undesired species. For example, goats can eat prickly pear, and cattle can disrupt the life cycle of cheatgrass and trample and kill woody brush.

    Why is holistic management significant to the issues of desertification and mitigating and adapting to climate change?

    Desertification coincides with the removal of the natural impact of herding ruminants. Although much desertification is rightly blamed on poor ranching and agricultural practices, holistic management postulates that the rootcause of grassland desertification worldwide is the decimation of large herding animals, and their predators and cousin creatures that were essential to ecosystem health. In North America, for example, we saw the elimination of approximately 70 million buffalo, 2 million wolves, and 4 billion (yes, billion) prairie dogs. By the 1890s, most of these creatures were near extinction. The dust bowls of the 1930s are attributed to drought and poor farming methods; however, the seeds of desertification were set nearly a century earlier when the wholesale slaughter of native wildlife became common practice.

    Holistic management offers a solution to this. It presents a natural approach for restoring grasslands that in turn play a major role in atmospheric carbon capture and climate stability. Although rarely given central billing in the climate change narrative, grasslands are actually the largest terrestrial ecosystem and one of the greatest stores of atmospheric carbon, on par with, if not greater than, that of forests and the atmosphere itself. Unlike forests, however, where carbon capture is predominantly held above ground and only for the lifetime of the trees, grasslands build soil that can grow to meters deep and sequester carbon for millennia.

    The challenge for the climate change community is to realize that grasslands cannot be restored without the impact of herding ruminants. And without the carbon capturing services provided through grassland photosynthesis and soil formation, there is no mitigation of global warming. Even if all fossil fuel use is ceased, without addressing the worldwide problem of atmospheric carbon loading through land degradation, we will continue down the path of a runaway climate catastrophe. One way or another, large grazing animals in significant quantities are on the critical path to a livable future for humans on this planet.

    Using cattle to mitigate global warming might seem counter-intuitive to many, especially in light of estimates that livestock are responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. What would you say to someone who questions the role of livestock in reversing climate change?

    I would say they are right to be suspicious, because the history of livestock management has been deleterious and the modern behemoth of industrial livestock production is a major polluter of land, water, and air. But this predisposition, although understandable, misses the point about how ruminants are meant to interact with their grassland environments, and how livestock can, if we chose, be managed for restorative effects over vast expanses of deteriorating rangeland.

    The phrase "livestock are responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions" also underscores a profound misunderstanding. It is not the livestock that are responsible for these significant greenhouse emissions, but the fossil fuel-intensive livestock industry. Any living creature is naturally in balance with its ecosystem, including all the minerals and gases that enter or leave it. The 18 percent figure stems from the 2006 UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report, Livestock's Long Shadow: Environmental Issues and Options. This report included all production-related environmental impacts, such as fossil fuels, irrigation, grain, fertilizers, and land degradation. It also accounted for the methane problem of CAFOs [factory farms] where manure is held in anaerobic lagoons. It is a proper indictment of the fossil fuel livestock industry, which is indeed destroying land and contributing to global warming.

    This report, however, has nothing to do with animals living in balance with their surroundings, nor with holistic management, the whole point of which is to help stop the degradation of industrial livestock production and restore grasslands to health through proper ruminant action. Seeing as holistic management uses range-fed cattle that are managed for ecosystem recovery (and thus carbon capture), none of the numbers associated with the FAO report are germane. They are entirely different systems. The only thing that is common is the cattle, and cattle aren’t the problem: the industry is, and that must change.

    Holistic management provides a model for what that change could look like, and it would be helpful for future assessments to consider this option. Range-fed cattle that are managed for ecosystem recovery will be helping to enhance grass cover and build soil and thus will actually be carbon negative. This will be true until such a time that the soil is maximally restored. That could be decades or centuries.

    It's important to remember that ruminants evolved to be in balance with grassland ecosystems, playing essential roles in maintenance of plants and soil health. Atmospheric loading of carbon dioxide in the case of industrial livestock does not come from the animals, but from fossil fuels and improper land use. Those are human-induced ills that can be changed. Additionally, the methane released by ruminants should be balanced by the intake of methanotrophic bacteria naturally present in healthy pastures. Finally, manure should be in the fields, building soil, not in anaerobic lagoons.

    The conclusions of the FAO report should be a call for us to do the right thing, and that is to stop growing grain for cattle and to restore livestock to their proper place as soil-enhancing ruminants. The potential of carbon capture via grassland restoration is enormous, and without proper ruminant action, either through wild herds or livestock managed as a proxy, desertification will continue and this opportunity for carbon capture will be lost.

    Many practitioners will posit that not only is holistic management essential to reverse desertification, but it is the only means available to restore enough of the world's prairie and savannas fast enough to avoid a climate catastrophe. I find this a compelling argument.

    You spent six weeks at Zimbabwe's Africa Centre for Holistic Management (ACHM). How do experiences with holistic management in southern Africa relate to western rangelands of the United States?

    ACHM is a 6,000-acre Holistic Management instructional ranch and learning site on communal lands in Zimbabwe. The terrain is "high veldt," or high desert, similar to northern New Mexico, with a mix of arid grassland and forested savanna ecosystems. The biomes in southern Africa are quite similar to those on western rangelands in the United States, as are the needs and goals of the ranchers and agriculturists in both regions.

    The successes in southern Africa show that even in the world's most impoverished areas, where the mismanagement of land and livestock has created high rates of desertification, reversal of fortunes is possible. Using livestock as a restorative tool can increase the grass cover, improve the water cycle, and provide viable livelihoods for land managers and their communities. If it can happen in southern Africa villages, it can—and does—happen on the American ranch.The Savory Institute in Colorado helps facilitate training and implementation, for example, and a new organization, Grasslands LLC, provides an outsourced ranch management service utilizing holistic management practices.

    On a personal note, what I found most revealing was the story from one Zimbabwean village woman about how, in the past, before holistic management practices were begun, the presence of biting ants made walking in the field intolerable. People without shoes had to wear plastic bags on their feet. The ants also attacked the baby goats and birds. It was horrible. Authorities told villagers the only treatment was expensive chemicals. However, once holistically managed grazing was started and the grass cover improved, the ant problem vanished. This is an invasive species issue, but it's also much more than that. It's a human story. People anywhere will want to benefit from healthy land. Nobody wants biting ants.

    What are the challenges of and potential for integrating holistic management practices into development policies?

    The potential for integrating holistic management into development policies is enormous and grows as the failures of our current models become more apparent and costly. The ranch in Zimbabwe hosts a steady stream of representatives from development NGOs who are eager to learn about holistic management and put the tools into practice. They are looking for solutions that are practical, affordable, and that can simultaneously address the multitude of issues that accompany land use decisions. There are pilot projects throughout Africa and growing interest for major efforts throughout Zimbabwe, Namibia, Kenya, and South Africa.

    In January 2013, the Center for International Environmental Resource and Policy (CIERP) at the Fletcher School at Tufts University will host a conference on holistic management, titled "Creating the Future We Want: Holistic Solutions to Global Challenges." In addition to showing the benefits of holistic land and livestock management, this conference is intended to show that the holistic framework for decision making can be used in any situation involving the management of complexity, as do all development projects and policies.

    The challenges of integrating holistic management into development policy are threefold. They are: 1) the fragmentation of traditional policy formation (rather than dealing with multiple development issues in unison), 2) the frequent misrepresentation of holistic management in academic literature (often associating it with rigid grazing systems), and 3) the reticence of policy institutions to entertain any policy that includes livestock as a "solution." Although each is a formidable challenge, there is encouraging progress on all fronts.

    The paradigm hurdle that most policy institutions have yet to clear, is that the same creature that contributed to soil erosion is also essential for its repair. The moment we shift our collective mental rudder toward a worldview that includes properly managed livestock as an agent for restoration, is the moment that previously intractable problems cease to be quandaries and we are on course toward a hopeful future. Esteemed policy institutions, such as Worldwatch, can be leaders in this transformation.

    Holistic Management: using animals to actually improve the land

    Don't Believe The Lie: Organic Farming CAN Feed The World

    By Ethan A. Huff

    One of the arguments often used to defend genetically-modified (GM) crops purports that biotechnology is necessary to feed the world, as non-GM and organic farming methods by themselves are incapable of producing enough food for everyone. But the truth of the matter is that organic farming by itself is fully capable of feeding the world — we just need to make a few changes to the way we grow and raise our food, which includes putting an end to the factory farming methods that are destroying our health and the planet.

    In a report entitled Feeding the Future, the Soil Association, a U.K.-based organic farming advocacy group, makes the case that organic and other agro-ecological farming systems are not only the solution to the world’s hunger problems, but when implemented, these holistic methods of growing food actually facilitate bringing the world’s poorest out of poverty.

    On the flip side, GM farming systems perpetuate and even create poverty because they lock farmers into an endless cycle of dependence on corporations for both the next season’s batch of self-destructing seeds, and the toxic chemical cocktails required to grow them. GM agriculture, in other words, is toxic to the world’s economies, toxic to human health, and toxic to the environment.

    As was shown in a recent Rodale Institute study, which was the culmination of more than 30 years worth of research, organic farming systems actually produce higher yields than GM and non-GM conventional farming systems. Organic farming is also fully self-renewing and sustainable, as composting, manure, and other organic fertilizing methods naturally enrich soil and eliminate the need for toxic pesticides and herbicides (http://www.naturalnews.com/033925_organic_farming_crop_yields.html).

    A much as 40 percent of the world’s grains are fed to factory farm animals

    Besides the GMO issue, factory farming systems in general, including confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), are needlessly depleting much of the world’s supply of grains. According to the Soil Association, as much as 40 percent of all the world’s cereals are fed to livestock, and this could rise to 50 percent by 2050 if current trends continue.

    Ruminating animals like cows and sheep were meant to eat grasses on pasture, not GM soy, corn, and the many other grains that are routinely fed to them on factory farms. Besides making the animals sick, as they were not designed to eat them, these grain mixtures require an intense amount of resources to grow and produce.

    By letting animals graze naturally on pasture grasses, which humans cannot eat anyway, these grains could instead be used to feed humans. And grass-fed animals produce far healthier meat than grain-fed animals anyway, which means that human health across the globe would improve dramatically just from making the switch (http://www.naturalnews.com/027199_meat_fat_cattle.html).

    One third of the world’s food ends up in the trash heap as waste

    Particularly in the developed world, humans waste an incredible amount of food. The Soil Association says that roughly one third of all food produced for human consumption ends up getting wasted. So if more people simply made a conscious effort to conserve food, or at least come up with simple ways to share unused food with those in need, hunger in many areas of the world would subside dramatically (http://www.naturalnews.com/033885_food_waste_America.html).

    The group also mentions a type of food rationing system as another option, but such a tyrannical approach would be wholly unnecessary if the other methods were implemented, and if more people began growing their own organic food at home.

    Green roofs: types and construction

    Green roof infrastructure promises to become an increasingly important option for building owners and community planners. Green roofs can address many of the challenges facing urban residents. Life cycle costing indicates that green roofs cost the same or less than conventional roofing and they are an investment which provides a significant number of social, environmental and economic benefits that are both public and private in nature.

    Green roofs are not a new phenomenon. They have been standard construction practice in many countries for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, mainly due to the excellent insulative qualities of the combined plant and soil layers (sod).In the cold climates of Iceland and Scandinavia sod roofs helped to retain a building 's heat, while in warm countries such as Tanzania, they keep buildings cool.

    Until the mid-20th century, green roofs were viewed mainly as a vernacular building practice. However in the 1960 's, rising concerns about the degraded quality of the urban environment and the rapid decline of green space in urban areas, renewed interest in green roofs as a "green solution" was sparked in Germany and Switzerland .New technical research was carried out, ranging from studies on root-repelling agents, membranes, drainage, lightweight growing media, to plant suitability.

    The Benefits

    High water retention

    • Run-off attenuation reduces sewer overflows

    Improves environment

    • Creates a beneficial monoclimate by cooling and humidifying the   surrounding air.
    • Absorbs greenhouse gases.
    • Absorbs air pollution and dust.
    • Reduces the heat island effect, which is the main cause of ozone   production

    Habitat for animals and plants

    Building fabric

    • Protects the roof from mechanical damage and ultra violet radiation –   thus extending the roof life.
    • Can provide extra insulation
    •   (See article about the National Research Council Canada research)
    • Reduces noise levels

    Can use recycled materials

    Many of the materials used in green roof construction are   manufactured from recycled building materials, plastics and rubber   reducing landfill disposal.

    Types of Green Roof



    • Build-up height 50 – 150mm
    • Suitable for large areas
    • Lightweight

    The basic build up of a green roof is three layered: drainage, filter and vegetation layer. Each layer needs to fulfil several functions to decrease the height and the weight of the overall build-up.

    roof construction


    Type of planting depends on depth of the growing medium layer as well as other factors. (see above)

    Growing medium

    Grain size, water retention, air volume, weight and nutrient reserves. The soil needs to be stable, not prone to settlement, well aerated even with water saturation and free of weeds.


    This layer retains drains water off the roof, protects the root proof layer from being mechanically damaged, retains water for times of drought and provides the substrate with a balanced supply of water and air. 


    (Warm roof rigid insulation)

    Root membrane

    This prevents roots from damaging the waterproofing. The membranes specification depends on the planned landscape and the slope of the roof.

    About Green Roofs

    Introduction to Types of Green Roof

    Green Roofs are Intentionally Vegetated Roof Surfaces

    They are generally categorized into three groups:

    Intensive, semi-intensive [or semi-extensive] and extensive.

    We have also provided a detailed page on domestic green roofs to help people who want to do something for themselves on their own property.

    Table: General Features of the Green Roof Types



    Semi intensive



    Ecological Landscape

    Garden/Ecological Landscape


    Type of vegetation



    Lawn/Perennials, Shrubs, Trees





    Depth of Substrate





    60-150 kg/m2

    120-200 kg/m2

    180-500 kg/m2





    Intensive Green Roofs

    Intensive Green Roofs Intensive green roofs have a deep growing medium, which allows the use of trees and shrubs. Some city parks are in fact intensive green roofs, such as the parks within the Canary Wharf Estate, Canada Square and West Ferry Circus and the roof of Cannon Street Station in London.

    intensive green roofs require extra loading requirements The depth of the growing medium requires extra loading requirements within the holding structure and requires a complex irrigation system for maintenance.

    They are generally quite costly and require extra structural design to the building

    The depth of the growing medium requires extra loading requirements within the holding structure and requires a complex irrigation system for maintenance.

    They are generally quite costly and require extra structural design to the building.

    Extensive Green Roofs

    Extensive Green Roofs Extensive green roofs have a thin growing medium and require minimal maintenance, and in general due not require irrigation [some require irrigation initially]. They are generally less costly to install than intensive green roofs.

    There are 3 types currently used in the UK:

    1. Sedum mats Sedum Mats - a sedum mat is a base layer of Polyester, Hessian, or porous polythene depending on the supplier, on which is laid the 2cm growing medium, on to which is sprinkled sedum cuttings. These grow into the substrate to maturity. When harvested the Sedum blanket is rolled up from the carrier upwards and delivered to site. When installed the Sedum blanket (including the 2cm of growing medium) is rolled out onto either 5 - 7cm of growing medium (standard method) or direct onto a moisture retention blanket (ultra light weight method).

    Sedums are used because they are wind, frost and drought resistant not because they absorb water. Its ability to absorb water makes it drought resistant.

    sedum mat based green roof

    2. Substrate based roof

    7cm of crushed recycled brick is placed on the green roof system and plug planted with sedums or with sedum mats applied. There is a misconception that green roofs are made of turf. Although some green roofs are made of turf this is not generally the case.

    Substrate based extensive green roof

    3. Green / Brown roofs for biodiversity

    Similar to substrate based but can, in some cases, use recycled aggregate from site and generally left to colonise naturally or seeded with an annual wildflower mix or local seed source.

    extensive green roof for biodiversity

    The original concept of the brown biodiverse roof was to use recycled brick and concrete form a local recycling plant. Although this was a good idea there are a number of problems:

    1. the water holding capacity of the aggregate
    2. quality of the aggregate
    3. contractors eco dumping waste material on the roofs

    Recent research and experience suggests the use of commercial crushed brick or other porous type substrate to ensure quality and known water storage. This type of roof will need higher organic content to ensure that the wildflower plugs or seeds that need to be specified can flourish. More information in Biodiversity Guide.

    Green Roof Benefits

    Reduction of Urban Heat Island – Research in Tyndale Centre for climate change suggests we need a 10% increase in green space in our cities to combat climate change. This is particularly relevant to the reduction in the Urban Heat Island [UHIE]. Green roofs are recognized to have a positive effect on reducing the UHIE

    Biodiversity - Green roofs can provide important refuges for wildlife in urban areas. Research in Switzerland and the UK has demonstrated that green roofs can provide important refuges for rare invertebrate populations.

    Water - Green roofs can significantly reduce the surface run off volumes and rates of rainfall leaving roofs. As a source control mechanism in the Sustainable Urban Drainage System green roofs can help reduce flash floods as a consequence of intense rainfall events. This will become increasingly important as a consequence of climate change.

    Green roofs also improve the quality of water and although the amount of water is reduced it is possible to rainfall harvest from roofs that have been greened.

    Thermal Performance - Green roofs cannot be given a U-value at present. However they have been shown to significantly reduce the need for air conditioning in summer and can provide a degree of insulation in winter.

    Sound Insulation - The combination of soil, plants and trapped layers of air within green roof systems can act as a sound insulation barrier. Sound waves are absorbed, reflected or deflected. The growing medium tends to block lower sound frequencies whilst the plants block higher frequencies.

    Protection of Waterproofing - The original green roofs in Germany stem from covering wet bitumen with 6cm of sand, which became vegetated. This covering was to protect the wet bitumen from fire. Green roofs have now been shown to double if not triple the life of waterproofing membranes beneath the green roof.

    Air Quality – airborne particles and pollutants are filtered from the atmosphere by the substrates and vegetation on a green roof.

    Amenity Space – in dense urban environments there is often a lack of green space for residents. Roof Gardens and roof top parks provide important green spaces to improve the quality of life for urban residents.

    Urban Agriculture - Urban Rooftop Food Growing – roofs, where strong enough provide a space for urban food growing. Although many large flat roofs may not have the loading capabilities to hold food growing some roofs will and the many balconies in are urban areas are ideal.

    Perceived Barriers to Green Roofs

    Maintenance – will depend on the type of green roof system installed ...

    Structural – structure can be an issue especially in terms of retrofitting schemes. However many green roofs, especially in London are in fact green roofs that have been installed onto existing buildings...

    Guarantees – there is often a concern that warranties for waterproofing will be affected. Most of the main suppliers in the UK provide guarantees for their waterproofing with a green roof if installed by an approved contractor...

    Fire - Fire has become an issue since a number of reports in magazines that insurances companies are not willing to insure buildings with green roofs. However it should be noted that on the continent buildings with green roofs get a reduction in fire insurance as the counter intuitively the green roof protects the building from fire...

    Guidance and Support – It is often muted that there is little knowledge of green roofs in the UK. This was perhaps the case 10 years ago but we have a very strong green roof industry and a number of independent organizations specializing in green roofs...

    "Health depends much more on our eating habits than on the physician's art."
    D. Leybok

    Today it has now been demonstrated that, in order to maintain the vitally important functions of the organism, the intake of a full set of all nutritional elements in their natural, organic form is necessary. This is exceptionally important in the period of age-related hormonally based physiological change in the organism, and requires special measures to maintain the high level of internal reserves that ensure stability in the interaction of the organism's systems.

    Only natural, organic, "living" products, which provide us with the vital energy of biologically active substances, are capable of maintaining the harmony of life to the fullest extent.

    The oil of the Siberian cedar has long been valued for its ability to increase endurance and strength, preserve youth, and maintain the reproductive functions.

    Cedar oil possesses unsurpassed health-improving qualities that beneficially regulate fat metabolism in the human organism, and are effective for the prophylaxis of disorders of the fat metabolism, cholelithiasis, and atherosclerosis.

    Cedar oil possesses high energy potential and chemical potential, contains a vitamin-mineral complex unique in the quality and quantity of its composition, the balanced combination of this complex provides the basis for its proper assimilation by the organism.

    Having an anti-oxidant and membrane-stabilizing action, Siberian cedar nut oil strengthens the cardiovascular system, improves the blood supply to the tissues, facilitates the normalization of fat metabolism, improves the digestive organs, and maintains the functions of the nervous system.

    Siberian cedar nut oil contains natural compounds that have the ability to maintain the balance of the human sex hormones, which is basic for the preservation of the physical form and quality of health at this physiological age. The ingestion of Siberian cedar nut oil will help to diminish the manifestation of the menopausal syndrome in women: sleep disturbances, irritability, tendency to perspire, fluctuations in blood pressure, bouts of palpitation, lessening of the ability to work.

    The use of Siberian cedar nut oil makes it possible to slow aging and improve sexual function, and facilitates the prolongation of youth and attractiveness.

    In women who are more than 50 years of age, the number of cases of ischemic heart disease increases in comparison to the previous period by 8 to 10 times, and is often complicated by myocardial infarction. The timely and regular ingestion of Siberian cedar nut oil makes it possible to maintain the balance of sex hormones (estrogens) and lower the risk of the development of coronary heart disease in this age group.

    A frequent pathology at this age is osteoporosis. This means that, in your bones, there is a decrease in the quantity of calcium, which is essential for maintaining the strength of the bony tissue. Normal calcium metabolism in the organism is possible in the presence of magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins A, C, D, E, and a sufficient level of estrogens.

    Siberian cedar nut oil provides you with all these vitamins and trace elements in biological form, which makes possible to prevent the development of osteoporosis.

    Phytoestrogens in the composition of Siberian cedar nut oil also possess antioxidant and antitumor action, and strengthen the antisclerotic effect of all the components of the product.

    The regular ingestion of Siberian cedar nut oil reduces the risk of the beginning of hormonally dependent tumoral processes (mastopathy, cancer of the mammary gland, cancer of the prostate).

    An improvement in the quality of nutrition due to the regular inclusion in the food allowance of Siberian cedar nut oil makes it possible to create conditions that maintain the harmony and preservation of health.

    The use of Pine Power to maintain a high level of health and work capacity for a person at a young and active age.

    by Dr. Maria Kazakova
    Ural State Medical Academy, Ekaterinburg

    "The wise man prevents diseases,
    and does not treat them."

    (Chinese proverb)

    Young Couple

    Civilization has drastically changed our lifestyle and the nature of our work-related activities—intensive loads, nervous stress, and huge responsibility provoke the onset of pathological processes at a young, active age.

    The influence of unfavourable environmental factors leads to the formation of an excess of unstable molecules, which eat away at us like rust and lead to damage to cells and their genetic apparatus. The consequences of this are practically all modern ailments, such as diseases of the heart and vessels, diabetes, weakening of the immune system, injuries to the osteoarticular system, cancerous conditions, and premature aging.

    The ability to resist the harmful influence of the environment is assisted by a system that includes a healthy lifestyle: rejection of harmful habits, comprehensive motor activity, and a balanced diet of natural products.

    Pine Power cedar nut flakes produced by Siberian Pines Inc. are 100% natural, and are balanced in accordance with the body's requirements. Age-old production technologies make it possible to preserve the unique natural composition of biologically active substances.

    By saturating the body with valuable plant protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, all natural vitamins, biological forms of macro-elements and trace elements, and dietary fibre, Pine Power preserves and restores the natural mechanisms of harmony and health.

    The normalization of all forms of metabolism (protein, fat, carbohydrate) assists in maintaining good physical condition and preventing obesity, and makes it possible to preserve youth and attractiveness.

    Using Pine Power cedar nut flakes provides the body with full antioxidant protection and a collection of all essential nutritive elements that maintain the course of metabolic processes along genetically programmed pathways.

    Pine Power displays marked antioxidant activity owing to the combination of tocopherols (vitamin E) and vitamin C, which mutually reinforce each other's action by the principles of synergy. The vitamin P found in the product provides additional reinforcement for the antioxidant effects of vitamin C, and the high content of zinc assists in the stabilization of the genetic structures of the cell.

    Pine Power - cedar nut flakes

    The irreplaceable fatty acids found in Pine Power are extremely important structural components for the building of cell membranes and, in this manner, together with the valuable amino-acid composition, create optimal conditions for the formation of new cells that are resistant to harmful factors. The high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids imparts an anti-atherosclerotic effect to the product.

    It is well known that the first signs of atherosclerotic deposits on vessel walls appear as early as 20 years of age (and even earlier), for that reason preventive treatment of the condition should be carried out as early as possible in order to reduce the risk of the onset of disorders involving circulation and its fatal complications—myocardial infarct and stroke.

    The use of cedar nut oil and Pine Power cedar nut flakes prevents the development of atherosclerosis and the conditions associated with it. Pine Power's rich mineral composition is notable for its high content of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, and iodine. The saturation of the body with biological forms of iodine gives the product the properties of having a favourable influence on the function of the thyroid gland and of preventing the development of endemic goiter, a condition prevalent among young patients.

    Pine Power has the attribute of beneficially regulating the production of the sex hormones and maintaining the hormonal balance, which is a most important condition for preserving the reproductive function and the ability to continue the species. For women, using Pine Power provides the means to prevent disruptions of the menstrual cycle, to lower the risk of developing degenerative processes in the uterus and uterine appendages, and to lower the risk of mastopathy and complications during pregnancy and in childbirth.

    For men, the use of this product increases physical strength, improves the processes of spermatogenesis, and prevents the development of pathology of the prostate gland.

    Thus, the use of Pine Power cedar nut flakes may assist in the preventive treatment of infertility and in reducing the number of infertile marriages.

    The presence of dietary fibre in Pine Power gives the product the qualities of a natural sorbent, which is able to bind toxins in the opening of the intestines and remove them; it improves the processes of bile secretion and the motor-evacuative function of the bowels—all this assists in detoxification and the restoration of the cleanliness of the internal environment.

    As part of a programme of endoecological rehabilitation developed by the Research Institute for Clinical and Experimental Lymphangiology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Pine Power's natural vitamin-mineral complex was awarded the Great Gold Medal at the MedSib-2011 International Exhibition.

    The use of Pine Power cine nut flakes imparts strength, increases endurance, and provides a means to preserve the stability of the life-support system and to assist in the prevention of the diseases of civilization.

    Our Unique Production Technique:

    Cedar Nut Sheller
    This equipment and method of shelling Siberian Cedar Nuts brings the difference in the quality of "RINGING CEDARS OF RUSSIA" Siberian Cedar Kernels and Siberian Cedar Nut Oil

    Cedar Nut Oil Press
    This equipment and method of pressing Siberian Cedar Nuts brings the difference in the quality of "RINGING CEDARS OF RUSSIA" Siberian Cedare Nut Oil

    The brand name "THE RINGING CEDARS OF RUSSIA" stands for business integrity, decency and the highest possible quality of product. All products marketed under this brand name convey the primordial power of Nature and the warmth of our hearts. We offer:

    A variety of high-quality cedar products, including cedar nuts and cedar nut oil.

    Huge plantations of cedar trees grow in the Siberian taiga, said to be the ecologically purest area of the world. The virgin forest of the taiga has never been treated with any chemicals or artificial fertilisation, nor abused by agricultural machines.

    Cedar nuts (the seeds of the cedar tree) take two years to mature, during which time the tree accumulates a huge volume of positive cosmic energy. Crops of nuts are harvested manually by people lovingly devoted to this task, working in a pleasant environment without undue haste to create unique products full of positive energy reflecting the infinite powers of Nature. Specific preparations include:

    We pick only cedar cones which fall naturally from the trees, thus ensuring that only ripe cones are selected. We always avoid hitting the trees to shake unripe cedar cones down (as happens with some other commercial operations) -- a practice which causes the nuts to lose their healing power.

    Cones are then manually shelled with the help of wooden shell-removers. Nut centres are separated from their shells using wooden rollers.

    Cedar nut oil and cedar nut flour marketed under our brand name are obtained by the cold-pressure method, using manual wooden oil-presses.

    Cedar nut oil is then stored in special containers and packed in a small village near Novosibirsk by name "Kandayrovo" using unique technology to avoid any contact with metal. The whole process is strictly supervised to ensure it complies with all sanitary requirements.

    Final products are placed in special packaging to prevent daylight penetration, and stored at a temperature of 0C to +5C to better preserve the product's natural components. The resulting product is a bright gold-coloured liquid with the pleasant smell of cedar nuts. It is a 100% natural product with strong healing powers.


    Siberian Cedar nuts (cedar nuts) contain about 60% oil. They are therefore pressed to obtain Cedar nut oil, which is available on the market as a very expensive gourmet cooking oil. Cold pressing in all-wooden presses is preferred to retain the nutritional properties of nuts and derive the oil of highest quality.

    The Cedar nut oil bearing "The Ringing Cedars of Russia" brand comes exclusively from wild-harvested Siberian Cedar nuts - one of the most nutritious Cedar nuts in the world. In comparison, other Cedar nut oils are usually pressed from the Italian pignolia Cedar nuts, which are not nearly as potent and are often harvested from trees growing in plantations. Our Siberian Cedar nut oil is extra virgin (100% cold pressed from freshly shelled raw Siberian Cedar nuts), whereas most Cedar nut oils on the market are either not cold pressed or even pressed from roasted (!) Cedar nuts, which significantly decreases the oil value. Finally, "The Ringing Cedars of Russia" Siberian Cedar nut oil is the only one which is available on the market anywhere in the world pressed with wooden presses in accordance with traditional techniques described in Vladimir Megre's life-changing book "The Ringing Cedars of Russia". In contrast, all other Cedar nut oils are pressed using steel presses, which immediately degrades them (contact with steel oxidizes some of the Cedar nut oil's most important ingredients such as vitamins, and is known to remove the 'life force' from the oil).

    Cedar nut oil has also traditionally been used in ancient Russian and European natural medicine to cure a wide array of ailments - ingested (decreasing blood pressure, boosting immune system resistance, etc.) or applied externally (a range of dermatological disorders). It is also used in expensive cosmetics.

    Cedar nut oil contains pinolenic acid, a polyunsaturated fatty acid, and is marketed in the U.S. as a means stimulate cell proliferation, prevent hypertension, decrease blood lipid and blood sugar, and inhibit allergic reactions.

    Cedar Nut Recipe


    1. Preheat the oven to fan 170C/ conventional 190C/gas 5. Butter a shallow 23cm square tin. Tip the flour, oats and butter into a mixing bowl and use your fingers to work the mixture together to make coarse crumbs. Mix in the sugar, lemon zest and three quarters of the cedar nuts using your hands, then press the mixture together well so it forms large sticky clumps.

    2. Drop about two thirds of the oat mixture into the base of the tin, spread it out and press down very lightly - don't pack it too firmly. Scatter the raspberries on top, sprinkle the rest of the oat mixture over, then the rest of the cedar nuts and press everything down lightly.

    3. Bake for 35-40 minutes until pale golden on top. Cut into 12 bars with a sharp knife while still warm, then leave to cool in the tin before removing. Will keep for 2-3 days.

    Cuts into 12 large bars.


    2 cups vegetable broth
    1 cup quinoa, rinsed
    1/4 cup cedar nuts
    1 tablespoon cedar nut oil
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
    Salt and pepper


    Put the broth and quinoa in a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and grain is tender.

    Meanwhile, toast the nuts in a large dry skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown and fragrant, about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove nuts from pan and set aside. Heat the oil in the same skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook stirring occasionally, until the onions soften and begin to brown, about 6 minutes.

    When the quinoa is done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a large serving bowl. Stir in the cedar nuts, onions, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and serve.


    This dressing adds a special touch to your salad with crunchy cedar nuts and the bright flavors of cranberry and balsamic vinegar.

    6 tablespoons cranberry juice
    1 tablespoon cedar nuts, toasted
    1 tablespoon cedar nut oil
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/8 teaspoon salt


    In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine all ingredients; shake well. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

    Yield: 1/2 cup.

    Flakes of a cedar are obtained in the process of cedar nut oil cold pressing from cedar nut kernels.

    Cedar nut flakes wonderfully enrich diet of a bodybuilder. The protein of cedar nut flakes excels the ideal protein as it contains more histidine, methionine, cysteine, and tryptophan amino acids, and has well balanced chemical composition. The carbohydrate structure of a cedar nut kernel is presented by polysaccharides (starch, cellulose, pentosans and dextrins) and water-soluble sugars (glucose, fructose, sucrose and raffinose). According to results of medical researches the similar protein promotes dissolution of harmful cholesterol in blood and helps preventing cancer cell growth.

    Also cedar nut flakes are excellent addition to children's diet as they promote fast and harmonious physical development.

    Cedar Nut Flakes can be your daily nutritional and tasty snacks.

    Dear Sirs,
    Originally from Moscow, I left Russia more than15 years ago, ended up living and working in Hungary. Two years ago when my daughter, Pelagea, was born, me and my husband who is Hungarian decided to move out of the city. We have more than 2 hectares of land, working our garden, have chickens and other poultry, goats.

    I came to Anastasia books through the Hungarian people i met, several people started to ask me whether I have read the books after I told them why we moved to the countryside. Our homeopathic doctor asked, then several others. So i asked my parents to get me the books when they came to visit and very grateful for the opportunity to read them. Since then my husband read it in Hungarian, plus I keep recommending them to people I know. My 70 year mother loved them, for me it was like coming home, thank you.

    Many thanks in advance.
    Have a good day.

    When I did my first order I was simply delighted to receive and try out these products and they did not disappoint! I could feel the effects of the Pine Nut Oil immediately. The experience was of an accelerated thought process, mind you I am very sensitive and this may have played a role in my experience. I also got the Pine Nut Power, simply delicious. My only regret is I went through them to quickly, so this time I'm ordering a lager amount.

    Enjoy and Be Well,

    After feeling ongoing chest pain for 2 years, and having gone through 2 echocardiograms ruling out that my heart was the problem - I was finally diagnosed with a hiatal hernia which started in my pregnancy, and which has led me to have severe GERD. The doctor was very concerned that I had not been diagnosed in 2 years, and that the inflammation in my esophagus was quite bad. I was told I need treatment right away so that I don't develop worse conditions such as Barrett's esophagus, which is when the lining of the esophagus is damaged very badly, and plays a factor in esophageal cancer. He wanted me to take prescription level antacids right away.

    I knew I didn't want to start taking medicines, and I suddenly remembered about the Cedar Nut Oil I had read in The Ringing Cedars series. I was drawn to look more into it, although I didn't even realize at the time that Cedar Nut Oil is so good for the digestive system and reflux etc. After I researched it, I ordered it, and was very excited to try it. I had high hopes of this oil that Anastasia talks about, but part of me was skeptical and thought will this really work? I ordered two 100 ml bottles, and took 3 teaspoons daily for 3 weeks. My chest pain, inflammation, and esophageal spasms have completely disappeared. I was also feeling some pains from my uterine fibroids after having given birth to my son. Those pains also disappeared. It also healed my vocal chords (they were getting hoarse due to the reflux). I just couldn't believe it. Above all, it tasted great and even suppressed my appetite. I will be ordering this product once again. Thank you!

    The cedar nut oil has saved my life. I have been struggling with stomach pain due to severe ulcer for years. I have only used the oil for about 3 weeks and when I went to my doctor I no more had the problem. This is like a miracle! In addition to that it has helped me shed a few pounds, because I used to numb the pain with food and I no longer need to do that.

    History of Aromatherapy

    For millenniums humanity has been discovering mysterious properties of plants. Knowledge obtained through experiments and researches and its systematization resulted in a new science - Aromatherapy.

    Aromatherapy is an art of healing by means of plant aromas. Aromatherapy emerged long before it was thought as a science. Have you noticed how easily you breathe when you are walking in a forest? How nice it is to feel piny wood scent and redolence of green pine needles and resin! This is a natural aromatherapy.

    According to the first manuscripts with fragrance recipes aromatherapy has been used for 6000 years! In Egypt the use of aromatherapy is confirmed by earthenware tablets that described embalming process by means of aromatics.

    Ancient people perfectly understood aromatic and therapeutic properties of plants. Contemporary civilization just begins to uncover the value of aromatherapy hidden treasures.

    In the ancient times aromatic, antiseptic, antimicrobial and wound-healing properties of essential-oil plants were known and widely used from Babylon and Persia to India and China. In the old medical texts of these countries, written around 3000 years ago, many herbs and their utilization were described. Plants whose aromas were able to impact on consciousness were burned during religious ceremonies.

    The resins that were used for incense were highly therapeutic; they influenced on respiratory system and immersed priests into meditative state. Egyptians applied fragrances from perfumery and cosmetics to medicine and mummification. Some perfume jars still smell with fragrance that was kept there 3200 years ago. Also Egyptians used aromas for skin care, washing clothes, added them into vine and food. Frankincense oil used to be burned in honor of Egyptian God Ra, it also was a great component in skin care recipes. Cedar and Myrrh oils were used for embalming. As it turned out essential oils of cedar and myrrh contained elements with strong prophylactic and antiseptic properties, which allowed mummies be preserved for a very long time. Egyptians acquired a reputation of perfume experts; however, they were not familiar with essential oil extraction methods and used only infusions and ointments.

    Greeks continued researches in aromatherapy. They found new uses for essential oils in medicine. Ancient thinker and pharmacologist Pedanius Dioscorides wrote a book about healing with herbs "De Materia Medica". This book had been very popular in Europe for 12 centuries. Many recipes offered in this book are still useful today. Another Greek physician Hippocrates - the founder of contemporary scientific medicine composed a work where 236 plants and their medical use were described. Reflecting Greek philosophy of his time, Hippocrates approached patient as a unified whole and as a part of nature. He believed that plants contain medical elements in optimal combination and thus they heal better when unprocessed or as natural juices.

    Romans based their knowledge on Greeks' aromatherapy achievements. Their innovation was in bringing aromatic plants and ingredients from Aravia and Eastern India. With new plants more deceases could be cured. Romans paid a lot of attention to the aromatic properties of plants. In antique Rome and Greece perfumery with floral scents was booming, the essential oils were widely used in steam baths as a daily ritual. Many Greek doctors served in Roman army and carried their aromatherapy knowledge through different countries. Ancient Greek philosophers believed that essential oils were given to people by Olympus Gods as a means of supreme light, awakening love.

    After the collapse of Roman Empire, Arabic perfumers improved aromatherapy knowledge. They were the first who applied steam distillation for extracting essential oil from rose petals. This invention is believed to belong to Avicenna, philosopher and a physician of Middle East. He described more than 800 medical means that were mostly of botanical origin. In his book "The Canon of Medicine" he described steam distillation method which is used nowadays as well.

    European aromatherapy was developing in medieval times. During crusades Arabic fragrances were spread over entire Europe. Plant's medical properties were intensively studied at the times of pestilence spread. Branches of lavender and cypress were burned on the streets. It was the only protection against Black Death that people knew.

    In the ninetieth century with the development of synthetic pharmacology the importance of aromatherapy began to decrease. However, when it was noticed that synthetic products caused multiple complications the interest in aromatherapy arose again.

    In 1930, French scientist-chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse put into practice a term of Aromatherapy. His family owned a perfumery fabric, and, according to the legend, Maurice, working in a laboratory, burned his hand badly. By reflex, he dipped his hand into lavender oil that was standing by. Later he was so amazed watching mystical recovery and disappearance of scars on his hand. As a result he dedicated his live to researches about essential oil cosmetic and dermatological properties.

    French physician Jean Valnet significantly expanded uses of aromatherapy. He was using essential oils for disinfection of wounds and for internal organs spasms relieving. In 1964 he published a book "Practice of Aromatherapy" triggering the aromatherapy practice in Europe. Homeopathic clinics, practicing aromatherapy were build in Paris, Sveden and England where obvious rejuvenation properties of essential oils were studied.

    Contemporary aromatherapy is first of all a prophylactic and healthful method of maintaining good psycho-emotional and physical fitness. It is a therapy that relieves everyday stress and prevents development of infirmity. In Canada, US, Europe and Japan thousands of aromatherapy clinics operate, aromatherapy books are published and scientific laboratories are working, continuing the tradition of aromatherapy use.

    With the growing popularity of aromatherapy many people get familiarized with therapeutic properties of essential oils and start using them at home on a daily basis.
