Anasta, Vladimir Megre's tenth book in the "Ringing Cedars of Russia" series, has been released in Russian.


People will find it difficult to believe in something like this. And if someone does not believe, so what? What will be left to the nonbeliever from the lack of belief in his own power? His birth? Yes! But for what purpose? If afterward there is only a meaningless life, then death. And then again the question arises: born for what purpose? A multitude of teachings have existed for millions of years. All about the single idea that humanity is waiting for something from someone. And it waited, having locked up its thought and reason. And it did not think about why or for what purpose the Universe was illuminating the stars above.

The book launch will take place on 27 March 2010 at the Ringing Cedars International Festival (Moscow, Soccer Hall, Track and Soccer Complex of the Army Central Sports Club).

Information on the release of the book in the English Language will be published in THE EARTH Monthly Newspaper as soon as it becomes available.

Blagodat' Ecovillage

The lands in the community have been registered as private property. The category of the lands is agricultural purpose lands. All the lands are registered for carrying out personal, subsidiary farming. The community extends in a wide belt from the north side of the Skomorokhovo-Andreevckoe Road for a distance of four kilometres. More than 100 parcels of land have been registered, with a total area of more than 250 hectares. At the present time (as of March 2009), 18 families reside in the community. In these families, right on the domains, nine children have already been delivered by the hands of their happy dads.
The community is located about 150-170 km from Moscow, you can get there in two hours (longer, if there are traffic jams).

Natural environment of the village and its surroundings:

There are parcels with the following types of forest growth:
With individual woody plants five to seven years old
With a fence of young trees

Surrounding forest:
Yes, a significant one

Types of forest:
Mixed forest

Relief of the area:
Small hills

Sources of water (less than an hour's walk):
Pond, suitable for swimming

In more detail:
The areas are picturesque: hills in the form of ridges have a slope from north to south, descending to the Sablya River. In the south-west, a half kilometre away, is the village of Andreevskaya, with the remnants of a landowners' estate, which, until the revolution, was the home of the granddaughter of Admiral Grigoriy Andreevich Spiridov, the hero of the battle of Chesma. All around are taiga-type forests. There are many berries and mushrooms, there are even cloudberries.

Welcome to
SPACE of LOVE Magazine!

Issue 8 is out!

Many of us agree that our planet and world are in profound transition - facing a turning point in human history. Some say that we as a people have had this same chance many times before in our near and far history. Each time, so history shows, humanity sank back once more, en mass, into the same spiritual sleep. But once more, we are also closer than ever to be able to turn this planet into the paradise it was meant to be.

At this time on Earth, more people than ever are committed to awaken and to stay awake even as a large percentage of the world's beautiful people are being hypnotized and mass-manipulated out of their divine powers by only a few dark minds. We seem to have forgotten our most inviolable power, to love each other and co-create this beautiful Earth as a Space of Love, the metaphorical and literal paradise-like garden it was meant to be.

We were inspired to create this magazine by the incredible wisdom and vision of a young, beautiful recluse living in the wild of the Siberian Taiga, Anastasia, and a courageous author, Vladimir Megre. He has recorded her amazing, encouraging story and wisdom for us in a series of ten books, and eleven million best-selling copies, translated into over twenty of the world's languages.

We create and write through this meeting place, this Space of Love, for those of us who are ready to help transform and see this planet as the luscious paradise it was meant to be. Anastasia envisions and holds for us a foreseeable future where every man, woman, child and animal can eat and live in peace and harmony.

Our mandate is to share writings and ideas which help us transfer this inspiring vision into joyful lives all over the world.

Love IS

Love is a tree with branches of joy, harmony,
A delight to the eyes, melodic strings for a breeze,
infinite beauty at ease.
Love is a song bird, in search of its perfect match,
Forever nesting eggs of Life,
Knowing no sorrow, no strife.
Love is infinite space, God's indwelling place,
His stillness cradled in the unseen,
Our movements always bathed in His sheen.
Love is the roots of a tree, anchored certain and firmly,
It is wisdom and calm, a sweet fragrant balm,
Accustomed to giving, a selfless Life living.
Love Is. . .God.

I can see where you're coming from... I'm a college student too and went through a similar situation so maybe sharing my story might help you out:

About a year before I read the books I had finished one year of college (pre-University where I come from so there's no tuition besides supplies) and I started realizing how school really was killing my creativity and personal thought; it was processing me into a neat little package which I didn't like at all. Even though I loved learning (I'm a science student too) and had top grades, I decided to drop out and do some thinking and exploring before I went any further in my life.

I eventually wound up in Ecuador by myself, without knowing a word of Spanish, with a couple hundred bucks. Needless to say I was pretty isolated and was able to think, but I needed to think more clearly so I fasted for 13 days and basically just sat and thought the whole time. I came to alot of conclusions, especially about where I was going in life and what I should do. I'm not going to share that with you as I think you should find that out for yourself. In the end I realized knowledge was a good thing as long as you don't organize it into right and wrong. Even the wrong answers are useful. I decided I was mature enough to go to school and learn anything I could get my hands on without becoming dogmatic about anything.

I came back home and read the books before I was about to go back to school. At first I was set on finishing my school immediately, but after reading the books I contemplated not going back... until I realized this:

You can't be naive in thinking the world described by Anastasia is immediately accessible to everyone. Sure you can force it to be but I think you'd be short changing yourself of the situation and time you're living in. What is important to realize is your role in this TRANSITION. Because that's what it is... a transition. We're not going to wake up tomorrow with lives that will be ideal to what she described. You should think about the role you have in this transition and not be too naive but at the same time realize whatever you want is possible WITH TIME. You're young I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you have a mindset of what you want to do, things become a lot clearer and decisions are much more easily made. If you feel impatient start thinking about why you feel impatient and what you can learn from it.

As for me this is my plan: I've been back to school for the passed few months and its amazing what you can learn with an intense curiosity and knowing the uses you can have for what is being taught. I plan on finishing this semester. I've just finished seeding my plants for a garden I'm doing on my property along with my mom. We have a small yard but we'll make due. I've become almost cheap because I'm doing my best to save up for just some land. While my land grows and until it starts to bear fruit and can sustain me, I plan on continuing my education so I can use my own knowledge to help transition the world into what I see as a better place for my children.

Do your best to get some land if you can, only because it takes time for it to bear fruit and be able to sustain you. While that is happening, I see no reason why you should quit school if you honestly want to learn. You can always learn it yourself as you work if you don't have the money, but again that's just being a bit impatient. If you're doing a masters, 4 years is a relatively short time. In the meantime do what you can. Plant a tree in your yard... whatever, its up to you.

All the best,

How to Homeschool Your Child

How to Choose a Homeschool Curriculum

Families choose to homeschool for different reasons. Some parents decide from the beginning that a school system is not right for their children. Others start to homeschool when problems at school become evident. Once a decision to homeschool has been made, choosing a homeschooling curriculum can be overwhelming. Here we will help you to choose a homeschool curriculum.


1. Know your child's strengths. If you are interested in homeschooling, you probably have already determined the subjects your child enjoys the most and the subjects with which she will need the most help. You must also determine the best way in which your child learns.

2. Study the various types of homeschooling options. There are many teaching and learning styles for homeschoolers, including a structured style ("school at home"), unschooling (based on the child's interests) and accelerated learning (for a "gifted" child). For descriptions of homeschooling styles, go to the A to Z Home's Cool Homeschooling website (see Resources).

3. Go to homeschooling fairs. Depending on the state, you can find curriculum fairs throughout the year. These events have vendors available who can answer questions and show you examples of their programs and curricula.

4. Join a homeschooling group in your area. Your state's homeschool association can put you in touch with a local homeschooling group. You can also find information on homeschooling groups in libraries, children's museums and churches. Members of a homeschooling group can give you their opinions and experiences with different curricula.

5. Don't be afraid of trial and error. Homeschooling is a continual process of learning for both parent and child. If one curriculum does not work, put it aside and try another curriculum or learning style.

Tips & Warnings

- Curriculum prices can be overwhelming when you begin the search for the right homeschool curriculum. Consider buying used books to save money (see Resources).

- If you pull your child out of a public or private school, you may still be in a traditional school mindset. Remember that with homeschooling, learning is based on your child's specific needs and interests. This gives you flexibility to try new things and do school in a way that works best for your family.

- Social support is very important when you homeschool. Find a homeschooling group with which you feel comfortable. Also consider trading subjects with another homeschooling family. This gives children a chance to interact with another teacher and to learn within a group setting.

- You may find that the curriculum you choose is not the right fit for you and your child. Check the return policy for any curriculum you buy. If you are unable to return the products you purchased, consider reselling them.

- Check the laws in your state. Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, but registration requirements vary. Some states require yearly tests to be sure children are on grade level. Find legislation for your state at the Home School Legal Defense Association website (see Resources).

- Homeschool fairs are large and can be overwhelming for a first-time homeschooler. Bring a friend to help navigate and, if possible, visit the event with an experienced homeschooler.

Understanding Life Learning

by Wendy Priesnitz

Life learning (sometimes called "radical unschooling," "natural learning" or "self-directed learning"...or even "homeschooling") is one of those concepts that is almost easier to define by saying what it isn't, than what it is. And that's probably because our own schooled backgrounds have convinced us that learning happens only in a dedicated building on certain days, between certain hours, and managed by a specially trained professional.

Within that schooling framework, no matter how hard teachers try and no matter how eloquent their text books, many bright students get bored, many slower students struggle and give up or lose their self-esteem, and most of them reach the end of the process unprepared to make the transition to adulthood. They have memorized a certain body of knowledge long enough to regurgitate the information on tests, but they haven't really learned much, at least of the official curriculum.

Life learners, on the other hand, know that learning is not difficult, that people learn things quite easily if they're not compelled and coerced, if they see a need to learn something, and if they are trusted and respected enough to learn it on their own timetable, at their own speed, in their own way. They know that learning cannot be produced in us and that we cannot produce it in others - no matter what age and no matter if we're at school or at home.

They understand that the tools used in schools, such as text books, lesson plans, testing, grading, report cards, course requirements, motivating students, homework assignments, blackboard writing, bulletin board decorating, schedules and attendance regulations, are all designed to manage or account for the efficient delivery of information in a publicly funded setting. They have little to do with how people actually learn.

Life learning happens independent of time, location or the presence of a teacher. It does not require mom or dad to teach, or kids to work in workbooks at the kitchen table from 9 to noon from September to June.

Life learning is learner driven. It involves living and learning - in and from the real world. It is about exploring, questioning, experimenting, making messes, taking risks without fear of ridicule, making mistakes and trying again.

Life learning does not involve memorized theory so much as it requires applying knowledge. And that often means moving around, talking, experimenting, thinking, jumping up and down...and sometimes appearing not to be doing anything at all. It allows flexibility, independence and freedom from all the school-type interferences that can get in the way of real learning.

In conventional education, the curriculum rules. It must be completed so that testing, grading and reporting can begin. In this sort of atmosphere, accurately duplicating the results of scientific experiments that others have already performed is more important than finding out something new. Finishing pages of math equations is more important than understanding how the numbers relate to each other.

But kids are natural scientists and don't need to be taught science. They are also natural mathematicians and don't need to be told how to count things. Developmental psychologist and Harvard professor Robert White calls this instinct to learn, to manipulate, to master an "urge toward competence." What he means is that we are born with not just a desire, but the need to have an impact on our surroundings, to control and understand the world in which we live.

We do not just sit and wait for the world to come to us...unless we are among the unfortunate majority who are told to sit down, line up, be quiet and wait. Life learners try actively to interpret the world, to make sense of it. Of course, this drive to discover means we are constantly learning...and also experiencing the pride that comes with having understood new things and having mastered new skills.

So life learning is about trusting kids to learn what they need to know and about helping them to learn and grow in their own ways. It is about providing positive, life-affirming experiences that enable children to understand the world and their culture and to interact with it.

Children learn two of the most important and difficult things they will ever learn during the first two years of life: how to walk and how to talk. Why? Because they want to. So they work hard at learning the necessary skills, purposefully, passionately, constantly. As parents, we encourage, support, protect, cheer from the sidelines and model the behavior. But most of all, we trust in their ultimate success.

That early learning is a model for all self-directed learning. As parents, our role as life learning facilitators is the same as it was when our children learned how to walk and talk. We talk with our kids and answer their questions honestly; we provide opportunities for interaction with other people (including elderly family and community members); we share and model learning; we create a secure environment by supporting the risk-and mistake-making processes; we keep their world whole rather than breaking it up into subjects; we enrich their environment with books, pens, paper and other learning materials; we celebrate their accomplishments; we learn about and help them utilize their individual learning styles; and we provide access to the real world and the tools that are part of it.

We also provide the time for our children to investigate their own ideas. And - perhaps the biggest challenge for many parents - we are flexible and patient observers of a process that is not particularly sequential or organized, in spite of what the curriculum writers would have us believe.

Life learning is not a method of education, nor are there any step-by-step guidelines or rules for doing it the right way. It is a way of life, a way of looking at the world and at children. It is about self-direction, about learning from life and throughout life. It is about kids, families and communities regaining control over their days, their learning, their money, their resources and their ability to direct and manage themselves.

As William Butler Yeats once wrote, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

This essay first appeared in Childs Play Magazine in 1988. It is now posted on the Life Learning Magazine website.

If You Fall for This "Water Fad" - You Could Do Some Major Damage

Clean, pure water is a cornerstone of good health. Your body is mostly water, so the ongoing intake of water is essential to your every function.

It's common knowledge that most water sources are now polluted, but there is tremendous confusion about what kind of drinking water is the most health promoting, and what kind of home water treatment produces the best drinking water.

Today, too many people are choosing soda instead of pure water as their primary beverage and the health of an entire culture is at risk.

The number one source of calories in the U.S. comes from high fructose corn syrup primarily in the form of soda. Americans drink an average of one gallon of soda each week, and this excessive fructose consumption is a driving force behind obesity and chronic degenerative disease in this country.

The most practical and economical strategy to combat obesity and chronic disease is to replace all sodas and other sweet beverages with pure water.

The trouble is, most public water supplies are loaded with hazardous contaminants, such as disinfection byproducts, fluoride, and pharmaceutical drugs, to name just a few.

Nevertheless, you DO need to make water your beverage of choice if you want to be healthy -- but it should be purified water.

But beyond water filtration, there's also the issue of pH -- alkaline versus acidic water. There are quite a few astonishing health claims being made about alkaline water, but are they true?

Most of them are not.

The theory behind alkaline water is, in a nutshell, that alkaline (ionized) water is a powerful antioxidant with surplus electrons that can "mop up" the dangerous free radicals you have coursing through your veins. Marketers claim alkaline water can correct excess acidity in your tissues, which can then prevent or reverse cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases.

Above is my interview with Houston Tomasz on this topic. He's a ten-year veteran in the water filtration industry and this article expands on some of the items that we discuss in our interview. The segment is part of a much longer interview that we will air in future issues. Additionally, I have interviewed two other experts on this topic and they both agree that ionizers that produce alkaline water are not your best choice.

"Snake Oil on Tap"

When I posted a comment on my Facebook page, announcing I was interviewing Houston, I asked for questions and the most popular question by far was whether or not to drink alkaline water.

Many alkaline water enthusiasts are convinced its powers are unparalleled and will vehemently defend it. I am also certain that many will post vigorous objections to my position, and that is their choice. It is also my choice and responsibility to provide information on a system that many people are relying on to provide health benefits that I feel are unjustified.

It is my impression that the scientific justification for these water systems is absent and these consumers have merely fallen under the spell of a skilled marketer who selectively misused pseudoscientific information, and twisted it around to scare them into buying their product.

There are a plethora of testimonials and so-called scientific studies on the Internet claiming alkaline water will cure your every ill. Many consumers, struggling to make sense of the scientific jargon, eventually throw up their hands in frustration.

In truth, there are very, very few legitimate scientific studies about the effects of alkaline water on human health.

The reality is, most of the circulating information is distributed by clever marketers, with very little scientific validity to back up their claims.

Complicating matters is the fact that most water ionizers and alkalizers are being marketed by multi-level marketing (MLM) companies with less than stellar ethics. They sell you a very expensive machine, for which you get a good discount if you sign up as a rep, and once you're part of the MLM, you can't very well change your mind about its benefits (especially if you're going to sell the units) -- even if you realize that the alkaline water is no longer "working" for you.

I have been personally approached many times and encouraged to sell these systems and there would have been large revenue streams had I chosen to do so, but I would never promote anything that I would never use personally, and I can assure you that I would never use alkaline water as a regular source of water.

Please understand I have no ax to grind here, and I am not selling any competing products. The sole purpose of this report is as a public health message to warn people that alkaline water is not all it is hyped up to be.

I have no doubts that many people do notice improvements in their health when they initially start drinking alkaline water, but I believe there are other reasons for this, and I am convinced that this is not a healthful strategy in the long run, so it is my strong recommendation to avoid alkaline water ionizers.

Some people experience an initial "high" when they start drinking alkaline water. This can easily be attributed to detoxification, and the fact that they are likely just becoming better hydrated.

Detoxification is about the only benefit of this type of water, and this benefit is limited to very SHORT TERM USE (no more than a week or two).

I will elaborate on what is known about alkaline water, but first you'll need a basic understanding of the properties of water and a few definitions.

Types of Water Available to You

As I will review in a future interview with Houston, there are many reasons why you want to avoid drinking tap water, or as Daniel Vitalis, a raw water enthusiast, refers to it: "tap liquid." He believes calling what flows from your unfiltered tap "water" is being overly generous, and I would have to agree.

In terms of types of water, here are some basic definitions to keep in mind:

  • Purified water: Water that is physically processed to remove impurities (e.g., distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis, carbon filtration, etc.)
  • Distilled water: Water that is boiled and evaporated away from its dissolved minerals, and then the vapor is condensed.
  • Bottled Water. This water is typically from a spring or has gone through reverse osmosis before it is bottled. However, some brands are simply bottled tap water that may or may not have gone through any additional filtering.
  • Ionized water or alkaline water: Water that has been separated into alkaline and acid fractions using electrolysis, which takes advantage of the naturally occurring electric charges found in the magnesium and calcium ions; in the drinking water industry, ionized water refers to alkaline water, which has a pH greater than 7.
  • Deionized or demineralized water: Water in which the mineral ions (salts such as sodium, calcium, iron, copper, chloride and bromide) have been removed by exposing it to electrically charged resins that attract and bind to the salts.
  • Hard and soft water: Hard water is any water containing an appreciable quantity of dissolved minerals; soft water is treated water in which the only cation (positively charged ion) is sodium.

Understanding PH

The concept of the acidity or alkalinity of your body -- or of water -- is based on the pH scale. So it's necessary to have a basic understanding of what pH is.

PH is simply a measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions. In fact, the acronym "pH" is short for "potential of hydrogen." The higher a liquid's pH, the fewer free hydrogen ions it has; the lower its pH, the more free hydrogen ions it has. One pH unit reflects a tenfold change in ion concentration -- for example, there are ten times as many hydrogen ions available at a pH of 7 than at a pH of 8.

pH scale

The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, and a pH of 7 is neutral.

Anything with a pH below 7 is considered acidic, with battery acid being the most extreme example, around 1. Anything with a pH above 7 is alkaline (or basic), with lye at the top of the scale, around 13.

Natural water on our planet ranges in pH from 6.5 to 9.0, depending on surrounding soil and vegetation, seasonal variations and weather, and even time of day responses to sunlight. Human activities further influence the pH of our water, from the barrage of toxic industrial pollutants.

According to an educational website called "Water on the Web"2:

"Pollutants in water can cause it to have higher algal and plant growth, as a result of increased temperature or excess nutrients, causing pH levels to rise. Although these small changes in pH are not likely to have a direct impact on aquatic life, they greatly influence the availability and solubility of all chemical forms in the lake and may aggravate nutrient problems.

For example, a change in pH may increase the solubility of phosphorus, making it more available for plant growth and resulting in a greater long-term demand for dissolved oxygen."

Most aquatic animals and plants have adapted to life in water with a very specific pH, and will die from even slight changes. A pH below 4 or above 10 will kill most fish, and very few animals can tolerate waters with a pH below 3 or above 11.

With living systems being so sensitive to changes in pH, it should comes as no surprise that YOU, as another living organism on this planet, would be sensitive to your water's pH as well.

Guidelines for the pH of Your Drinking Water

So, what are the recommendations for optimal drinking water pH?

The WHO has published a nearly-600 page document called "Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality."

In this voluminous tome, you would expect to find everything you'd ever want to know about your drinking water, right?

Well, everything EXCEPT a pH recommendation -- there are no health-based guidelines for pH!

They state that pH usually has "no direct impact on consumers," yet they also write pH is one of the "most important operational water quality parameters."

They do recommend your water pH be in the range of 6.5 to 8.0 so as not to corrode your pipes -- and they're NOT talking about your body's plumbing:

"Alkalinity and calcium management also contribute to the stability of water and control its aggressiveness to pipe and appliance. Failure to minimize corrosion can result in the contamination of drinking water and in adverse effects on its taste and appearance. Failure to minimize corrosion can result in the contamination of drinking water and in adverse effects on its taste and appearance."

It appears that the WHO is more concerned about the pipes in your house than the pipes in your body.

Most likely the optimal pH of the water you were designed to drink is somewhere between 6.5 and 7.5.

Alkalinity Research I: Flora and Fauna

Although the research is clear that alkaline water has detrimental effects on plants and animals, there are not many studies with humans.

A review of the literature turns up a variety of anecdotal evidence about the importance of ph to various living organisms, however, and as you might expect, optimal pH varies, depending on the organism.

The scientific literature indicates pH is important for nutrition and vitality. For example:

  • Michigan State University studied greenhouse growth media (including the pH of that media), finding it is extremely important for the media pH to be properly adjusted prior to planting. Too high of a pH (greater than 6.5) increases the chances of micronutrient deficiencies. To low of a pH (less than 5.3) results in calcium and/or magnesium and/or manganese toxicity.
  • Ohio State University Extension Service reports that alkaline water affects a plant's ability to obtain nutrients from the soil and can alter the soil's pH over time.
  • An ecological study in the Netherlands found that an influx of alkaline water led to the demise of a native plant called Stratiotes aloides L.
  • Fish chronically exposed to alkaline soft water exhibit signs of stress (sometimes fatal), while fish in alkaline hard water experienced no such adverse effects, according to a study at the University of British Columbia.

If you are a gardener, you can view a helpful illustration of the environmental effects of pH in your own garden. If your pH is low, your hydrangea produces pink flowers, but if your pH is high, you'll get blue flowers.

But what about us bipeds?

Dr. Mercola Interviews Houston Tomasz on Alkaline Water

Alkalinity Research II: Humans (continued)

There has been a great deal of debate about battling cancer by making your body alkaline. This has become a focus of interest as cancer rates have skyrocketed (along with many other chronic, debilitating diseases), while our bodies have become more acidic from our processed-food diets.

The scientific research about the benefits of alkalinity is by no means conclusive.

PH appears to have a major influence on cell mitochondria:

- Normal cells die under extremely alkaline conditions. A study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry found that alkalosis (rising cellular pH) causes alkaline-induced cell death as a result of altering mitochondrial function.
- Another study out of Cornell University states that antioxidants have not proven to be effective against many neurodegenerative diseases, and they state it may be a result of how the mitochondria operate within the cell in certain pH conditions.

There are some scientific studies that really argue against alkalinity, at least with respect to preventing or treating cancer.

Consider the research by Robert Gilles, who has studied tumor formation and acidity. According to Gilles, tumors, by their very nature, make themselves acidic -- even in an alkaline cellular structure. In other words, they make their own acidity.

Scientists who are in the process of developing prototypes for potential new anticancer agents that selectively kill tumor cells by interfering with the regulation of intracellular pH, have found that alkaline treatments do NOT have the desired effect -- but strongly acidic treatments do.

Talk about fighting fire with fire -- they are fighting acid-loving cancer cells with acid!

LESS alkalinity inside a cancer cell seems to be what you want, not more.

So, all of those ionizer salesmen promising alkaline water will lower your cancer risk are completely clueless when it comes to what the scientific research actually shows.

Even more interesting is a 2005 study by the National Cancer Institute, which revisits the use of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to treat cancer. They found that, in pharmacologic doses administered intravenously, ascorbic acid successfully killed cancer cells without harming normal cells. This is yet another example of cancer cells being vulnerable to acidity, as opposed to alkalinity.

It's clear that the relationship between alkalinity and cancer has been grossly oversimplified by those jumping to premature conclusions -- and of course by those trying to profit off your fear.

The bottom line is that alkaline water isn't cancer's magic bullet.

Balance is Key

As is true with many things, in the end it's a matter of balance.

Water that is too acidic or too alkaline can be detrimental to human health and lead to nutritional disequilibrium. This was demonstrated in a Swedish well water study, which found both pH extremes to be problematic.

Your body simply was not designed to drink highly alkaline water all the time.

So I believe it's best to be VERY careful when it comes to something as foundational as the water you drink on a daily basis. If you get it wrong, you could really cause yourself some major damage.

It makes sense that you are designed to drink water that occurs naturally, which excludes alkaline water with pH levels of 8 and above.

And if you drink alkaline water all the time, you're going to raise the alkalinity of your stomach, which will buffer your stomach's acidity and impair your ability to digest food as low stomach acid is one of the most common causes of ulcers. This can open the door for parasites in your small intestine, and your protein digestion may suffer. It also means you'll get less minerals and nutrients over time -- in fact, some of these health effects can already be seen in hard-core alkaline water drinkers.

Alkalinity is also potentially a problem because it is antibacterial, so it could potentially disrupt the balance of your body's beneficial bacteria.[xvi]

Living Water

What you want is pure water -- water that is clean, balanced, and healthful, neither too alkaline nor too acidic. Ideally, the pH of your water should be close to 7, which is neutral.

Somewhere between 6 to 8 is likely fine.

And some of the most healthful waters in the world -- that emerging from mountain springs -- are actually acidic in the range of 6.5. and would absolutely be my preference if it were readily available.

If this is something that interests you there is a web site, where you can find springs in your local area.

That is "living water," which is living in the same way that raw food is "living food."

One reason I am such an advocate for eating plenty of fresh, organic raw food is for its biophotons. Biophotons are the smallest units of light, which are stored in and used by all biological organisms -- including you. Vital energy finds its way into your cells from the biodynamic foods you eat.

In the same way that raw foods are alive with biophoton energy, natural water is "alive" in a similar way.

If you really want to alkalinize your body it would seem wise to encourage it with the highest quality water possible which is obtained from vegetable juice. Green vegetable juices will help your body normalize your body's pH naturally.

If this is new to you and you are interested in more information you can review my juicing manual for free.

I cannot think of "living water" without thinking of the visionary work of Dr. Masaru Emoto, the Japanese researcher who experimented with the crystal forms of water. What he discovered is that different forms of energy influence water's ability to organize into beautiful crystal forms.

He demonstrated that water crystallization depends on the natural health of the water. He found that water from natural springs, healing water sources, etc., formed beautiful and complex crystalline geometries -- like snowflakes. Water that had been distilled or polluted lost its inner order, and its ability to crystallize was profoundly disturbed.

You wouldn't want to eat dead food... so why would you want to drink dead water?

Water Ionizers are NOT Filters!

It is really important to understand that the ionization process in no way, shape, or form purifies your water. Many of them have additional carbon-based filtration systems added, as reverse osmosis or distilled water will not allow the ionizer to produce alkaline water.

If for whatever reason the information I am presenting here does not convince you to avoid using ionizers, then you will need to carefully analyze the water filter that is being used.

This article only addresses ionizers and alkaline water. In the near future I will post a comprehensive review of water filters as it is complex issue that is beyond the scope of this article.

Is Your Water Filter Certified?

In order to ensure your water is pure, you should use a high quality water filter in your home and workplace. You can narrow down the choices by making sure the product you choose is certified by a reputable independent water certification agency.

Two of the best, most stringent certifications are NSF and ANSI, who write the standards. If a water purifier is certified by NSF or ANSI, the product claims have been verified, the system is structurally sound, and the literature and labeling is not misleading. Look for the NSF seal.

Three other less rigorous certifications are Pace Analytical, Underwriters Laboratories, and The Water Quality Association (WQA).

There is no national regulation of water products -- states have their own regulations, which vary greatly state by state.

The EPA has published a chart listing their limits for every type of water contaminant, including microorganisms, disinfectants and disinfectant byproducts, organic and inorganic chemicals, and radionuclides, viewable here.

Please beware that some companies may mislead you by listing their UL certification, but this certification is good for the electrical components only, and has no bearing on water quality whatsoever.

Optimizing Your Body's PH: Back to Basics

The typical American diet is loaded with sugar and processed foods, which throws off your body's ability to optimize your pH. Although your body has mechanisms to buffer your pH, many of you are likely living in a state of low-grade acidosis from eating too many low-quality processed, devitalized food..

Our ancestors had no problems with pH because they ate a pre-agricultural hunter-gatherer diet, rich in plant foods and high quality meats, and devoid of grains.

You can optimize your body's pH by eating like your ancestor's did -- a diet rich in raw, organic, whole foods -- and this will help your body achieve homeostasis.

Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all nutrition plan that works for everyone, which is why Nutritional Typing is so helpful. Determining your nutritional type will help you narrow down the foods that are best for YOUR body's individual chemistry.

A diet that makes one person "acidic" may make another person "alkaline," so there is no one single universal food list for perfect pH.

For example, protein types can "over-alkalize" their systems by consuming too many dark green vegetables, which can worsen rather than improve their health, in spite of the many beneficial phytonutrients in leafy greens. (I am very familiar with this mistake as it's one I made prior to understanding nutritional typing!)

I want you to be aware of just how important it is to understand your body at a deeper level. Your body is a complex, multi-faceted biochemical system that is unlikely to respond well to shot-in-the-dark treatments, like alkaline water.

Natural Pregnancy

Stretch Marks And Itchy Skin During Pregnancy

Why is my skin so itchy? Is there anything I can do about it? And what about stretch marks? Are they really preventable?

As part of the miraculous journey of pregnancy, the skin of a mother-to-be will go through many changes. These are a result of increased circulation and hormonal functions designed to help nourish and support the new baby's growth, as well as readying the new mama for 9 months of bodily changes and a healthy delivery. For many women, pregnancy is heralded by circulation increases in the tiny vessels under the skin -- often this is welcomed as the 'healthy glow' of pregnancy.

Normal skin changes will include stretching, darkening of certain areas, itchiness, and hair and nail changes. Many of these are driven in part by changes in estrogen, progesterone and melanocyte stimulating hormone. Striae gravidarum, also known as 'stretch marks', are very common in about 95% of women who become pregnant. A number of factors play a role in who will have visible stretch marks, and these factors include genetics, current health, nutrient and hydration status, as well as the physical distance the skin needs to stretch.

As a naturopathic doctor, I recommend focusing on healthy food and lifestyle choices for best physical and emotional health. In general, skin problems of any kind are greatly related to internal health -- so the main focus should be to keep the body healthy on the inside for best results on the outside. Once pregnant, it is crucial to eat healthy whole foods and avoid excess sugar, dairy products and fried foods. It is also important to drink plenty of water, keep up levels of exercise, eat healthy essential fatty acids, and a quality prenatal with adequate vitamin C.

In fear of permanent stretch marks, many women undertake the ritual of applying creams, lotions and oils to prevent them. One German study suggested that about two thirds of women who do not use this method are more prone to stretch marks, while only one third of women who use a massage oil or cream tended to get the striae. Given that elasticity and stretching are a physical issue, using daily applications can greatly improve the skin's flexibility and suppleness to help decrease the chance of stretch marks. In my practice, and as an expecting mama myself, I find the levels of success for my patients are highest when a healthful lifestyle, diet, and exercise regimen are employed in conjunction with massage oil application.

It concerns me that most topical products on the market contain a number of preservatives, chemicals, perfumes and dyes. Since the mother's skin circulation is heightened and large surface areas are covered with these lotion applications, these chemicals can easily enter the body and end up in the mother's and fetal tissue. In a study by the Environmental Working Group, scientists identified over 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood from babies born in U.S. hospitals. Further analysis revealed umbilical blood harbored pesticides, consumer product ingredients (like paraben preserved lotions which are linked to breast cancers), particulates from burning fossil fuels, and garbage.

In conclusion, a healthy pregnancy and skin should include a good whole foods diet, plenty of water, exercise, sleep, daily oil applications, and avoidance of any chemical exposures. This will ensure great benefits to new baby and mama.

Seven Herbal Ways to Nurture Your Pregnant Self

Happy mamas mean happy babies! Of course it's important to get all the pampering, soothing, and comfort you can before the baby gets here and you're on milk and cradle call 24/7. But how can you feel pampered when your bottom is sore, your skin is itchy and your feet resemble water balloon art? It's key to remember that those discomforts of pregnancy are temporary, and common. And best of all, they can be safely soothed using nature's herbal gifts.

The knowledge of herbal remedies and plant medicine specific to pregnancy has been passed down from great-grandmother to grandmother to mother to daughter. When combined with the safety and assurances of contemporary evidence-based research, herbs are a natural way to support the phenomenal process of pregnancy and childbirth. So here are seven herbal ways to nurture, comfort and sooth yourself (whether you're expecting a baby or not).

1. You're putting it on, but where's it going? Make sure your "pure" "natural" or "organic" products are safe. What goes on and in your body goes in your baby, so make sure to read the ingredients of every product you choose to use. And using organic herbs whenever possible helps reduce your exposure to pesticides and herbicides. Zero toxin babies start with zero toxin mamas! If you're not even sure how to pronounce the ingredients in your "natural" product, check out the Skin Deep database ( to see how it measures up.

2. Feeling queasy? Ginger root is a time tested comfort for nausea of any kind, and research supports its safe use during pregnancy. You can use fresh ginger as a tea, the essential oil in an aromatherapy spray, or even an excuse to nibble on gingersnaps!

3. Fat feeties? Salt in the diet isn't an expectant mama's friend, especially in the second two trimesters when your feet look like a carnival act. Those feet are carrying an extra load, so they deserve a little pampering. Sticking those swollen feet in a warm foot bath, with plenty of salt and some soothing, aromatic and antifungal herbs like lavender and yarrow not only takes the load off, but also soothes, refreshes, and can help ease swelling. Ahhhh...

4. Hurting heiny? It's a sore subject with lots of mamas-to-be and brand new moms as well. It's hard to feel at the top of your game when your bottom is sore. Witch hazel leaves are naturally astringent and help shrink swollen tissues from extra pressure. Look for balms and sprays that have wound healing wonders like calendula to soothe your sore sitter.

5. Stretchy, itchy skin? Oooo the itch! Bellies and breasts have to expand to accommodate the brand new occupancy. One of the best ways to prevent stretching or scarring is to keep yourself well hydrated, inside and out. Drink lots of water and look for a pure, organic botanical-based oil that can help ease the itching that stretching skin causes, and make you less prone to the scratching that can encourage stretch marks.

6. Burpy, burning belly? Digestive issues are very common problems when there's less room in the inn! Gooey, coating marshmallow root and soothing chamomile and lemon balm are well loved for their ability to turn down the belly heat. Make yourself herbal tea from these herbs and sip a soothing cup. Add a sprig of spearmint and you can make a simple, safe tea to soothe the burn.

7. One, Two, One, Two... Time to tone the uterus! Red Raspberry leaf is a time honored third trimester herb to help prepare your uterus to show up for the big day and perform like a champ. A wee bit nervous? Chamomile and lemon balm are reliable soothers, and can be steeped into a calming tea that settles busy minds any time, not just during pregnancy.

It's a lot of work growing a miracle! Your body's doing some pretty impressive work and deserves a round of applause. Choose pure, safe products and herbs that ease life's bothersome bumps, bruises and boo-boos, from pregnancy to long past.

Organic Garden Autumn Projects

Autumn Chores Checklist for Organic Gardening

The end of summer does not mean the end of gardening chores. There is plenty to do before the days become too short to complete chores and winter sets in.

With autumn approaching there are plenty of chores and projects that need to be completed before winter settles in. Don't waste valuable time on unnecessary projects and chores. Things to do around the garden include:
Plant trees, shrubs, bulbs and perennials. Cooler weather and more rain make autumn the ideal time to plant. Roots will grow enough to establish the plants before winter and give them a head start in spring. However, certain varieties, such as magnolias and ornamental pears, should not be planted because they tend to root slowly and may not survive.

Dig up tender bulbs, such as caladiums and dahlias, and store them for the winter. They can be planted again in the spring when danger of frost has passed.

Add fallen leaves to the compost pile. They can also be shredded with a lawnmower, raked up, and used as mulch over flower beds.

Clean up diseased foliage from perennials and bushes. Do not put the plant material in the compost pile as it may not get hot enough to kill the pathogens.

Test the soil. Most soil labs are not as busy in the fall. Results are returned faster and soil amendments, except nitrogen, will have time to settle over the winter.

Leave plant stalks with seeds or berries that feed birds through the winter. These plants include purple coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, and sunflowers. Also, clean up bird feeders and get them ready for use.

Organic Farm Tomato Harvest

Growing Garlic

Like daffodils and other winter hardy bulbs, garlic overwinters well here and is best planted in fall - from the middle of September to the middle of October. And just like daffodils, garlic is extremely easy to grow - it's as easy as just sticking some cloves into the ground and forgetting about them. All that's needed is a raised bed so things don't get too soggy for them in our wet winters.

And any kind of garlic that appeals to you can be grown from its cloves. The best kinds of are usually found in Italian and Greek specialty stores. Check them out, and plant the garlic you like best.

Like all biennials, garlic stores growth resources in a bulb in its first year, and then flowers in its second year. This means that when the planted cloves sprout next year, they need a lots of fertilizer to make lots of green growth - the more green growth the larger the bulbs. Side dress once a week with a high nitrogen fertilizer, starting in spring and throughout their green growth period.

Plant the cloves root side down, about twice as deep as the height of the cloves, three to four inches apart in the row, in rows 12 inches apart. Five to ten feet of row will provide all but very large Italian families with all the garlic one can use. Garlic is disease and insect free - it is often used as in insect deterrent - and in our typical springs and summers, irrigation is not needed either.

Harvest garlic when the seed stalks are mature, or depending on kind, when the top leaves turn brown and fall over. Dig up the bulbs, leave the leaves attached, and hang them in the sun to dry. After they have dried the stalks can be removed, or left on and braided together for a garlic braid. Save the largest cloves for planting in the fall again. And that's all there is to growing an abundance of your own organic, poison free and supremely healthy garlic.

This familiar variety can also be grown from an early spring planting, and is great for long storage and braiding

With a hotter flavour than Silverskin, this garlic is the favourite among chefs, and is best planted in fall. Breaking off the flower stalks results in larger bulbs. Initially, the inner skin is purple which turns brown when cured.

Elephant Garlic
This is the mildest garlic and makes huge bulbs which mature in August, from its green growth which can grow five feet tall. Its cloves often rival the size of the whole bulb of the other garlics. It is also best planted in the fall. Because of its mild flavour, it is often used just like a vegetable in scrumptious gourmet dishes.

Nissan Leaf - first commercial, affordable electric vehicle on the market

(Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co said on Thursday it is on track to book 25,000 U.S. orders for its Leaf electric vehicle by the end of the year and the automaker will be making money on the green car.

Nissan has taken 8,000 U.S. reservations for the hatchback, set to go on sale in the United States in December, since it started taking orders nine days ago, Mark Perry, Nissan's North America director of product planning and strategy, told Reuters on the sidelines of an industry conference.

"We are on a double time march (for launch)," Perry said. "We are on our way to have 25,000 firm orders by December."

Nissan's U.S. launch of the car will start in California, Arizona, Washington, Tennessee and Oregon. The automaker also is launching the car in Japan and Europe in late 2010.

Production of the Leaf will start in Japan and later at plants in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Leaf sales will be capacity restrained in the first two years until the U.S. plant comes on line, Perry said.

The five-passenger car will be the first fully electric car launched by a major automaker. It is designed to provide a 100 mile (160 kilometer) range on a full charge and is priced at $32,780 not including federal tax credits or other incentives.

"We are making money at the price that we announced," Perry said. "We priced the car to be affordable. We priced it for mass adoption."

Nissan is counting on electric cars to help it close the gap on rivals led by Toyota Motor Corp and its gasoline-electric Prius, the world's most popular hybrid.

Federal tax credits of $7,500 will cut the Leaf's retail price to about 10 percent over the $23,000 starting price for a Prius. Federal tax credits have been phased out for the Prius.

State incentives could cut the cost further. In California, the top U.S. alternative car market, credits could reduce the Leaf price to $20,280.

Nissan's Leaf: Charged with Information

The all-electric car will tell drivers where to recharge.

Leaf dash: The Nissan Leaf interior includes dashboard displays that can show the location of nearby charge stations.

When the all-electric Nissan Leaf hits the U.S. market next year, consumers will have to consider its relatively short 100-mile driving range, as well as the scarcity of charging stations beyond their own homes. Nissan plans to tackle these concerns by providing information--and lots of it--to help drivers manage the recharging process.

The success of the Leaf and other electric cars "is going to come down to how comfortable people are that they can get where they want to go, won't run out of charge, and won't have to go through some process that will take them a long time and impact their ability to use the vehicle," says Rod MacKenzie, vice president and chief technology officer at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, a research think-tank in Washington, DC.

In other words, all-electric cars will need to connect the recharging infrastructure to in-car telematics.

The Leaf will do this with a communication module that connects via satellite to Nissan's global data center. It will be similar to existing telematics systems, such as GM's OnStar, which detects mechanical breakdowns and accidents and beams this information back to base.

But the Leaf will add an emphasis on monitoring the battery's condition and helping drivers keep their batteries topped-up. Planning recharges will be crucial: giving a Leaf a full charge will take 16 hours from home-based stations, at the voltages available in the U.S. or Japan, or eight hours at the higher voltages available in Europe. At a fast-charging station, equipped with high-voltage plugs, a charge will take 30 minutes--still a long time compared to filling a gas tank.

The Leaf's dashboard display will show remaining battery life, the location of charging stations, and which stations are within range. When the car gets low on power, the driver can put it into a "limp" mode so it drives at the most-efficient speed to ensure it gets there.

Once the driver plugs a car into a charging station, Nissan sends e-mail updates on how the charge is progressing, and when it's done. And finally, the owner can use a mobile device to switch on the car's electric air-conditioner or heater before detaching it from the charging station, so as not to waste battery life after pulling away.

"Most people think that the charging infrastructure is the Achilles' heel of an electric vehicle project. But it's really not," says Mark Perry, Nissan's director of product planning and advanced technology strategy. "We are doing this to address peace of mind. We think people will recharge at home 80 percent of the time. But this lets people feel comfortable with the what-ifs," he added.

Perry sees the dashboard information offered by the Leaf going even further in the future. "Eventually what will be available is not only charging station locations, but if they are occupied and unoccupied, and even a reservation process," says Perry.

Info display: An e-mail displayed on an iPhone (center) will tell Nissan Leaf owners when their car is finished charging. Dashboard displays (clockwise from top left) show the car's driving range and charging stations near the destination; the location of the nearest charging stations; battery charge levels and time to full charge; and an option for preheating or precooling the car before unplugging.

Some startup companies hope to make a business out of providing recharging stations and even battery swaps for rapid "refueling" along highways. But initially, recharging facilities, whether provided by startups, carmakers, or the government, will be relatively scarce. "Telematics will be an important part of helping you find those stations. And telematics will be an important part of accurately predicting that you can make it to your destination without refueling," says MacKenzie.

Wirelessly transmitted charging information will be less important for GM's Chevrolet Volt, also due for mass production next year. This car will carry a small gasoline engine for the purpose of recharging the electric battery. The gas option will boost its range from 40 miles in all-electric mode to 300 miles in gas-recharging mode. And this makes the Volt far less dependent on charging stations. Still, GM is using OnStar to monitor the mechanical and battery condition of pre-production Volts. And like the Leaf, production Volts will beam information about their battery's condition as well as any battery malfunction data to headquarters, and will notify users of charging-station locations.

Eventually, both electric and plug-in hybrid cars will most likely be able to communicate with power utilities, so consumers can charge their cars at off-peak times. By doing this, they could take advantage of lower off-peak electricity prices and avoid stressing the power grid.

The U.S. Department of Energy is now studying the best ways to manage car-charging on the power grid. Also involved with the study are Electric Transportation Engineering of Scottsdale, AZ, and Gridpoint, a smart-grid company based in Arlington, VA.

over the entire period of the observations

The Department of Therapeutic Dentistry, Novosibirsk State Medical University
Associate Professor T. G. Petrova, Head of the Department of Preventive Dentistry
T. V. Zvereva, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Instructor in the Department of Preventive Dentistry

Toothpaste with Cedar Nut Flour and Cedar Nut Shell

Toothpaste KEDRA

1. Purpose of the study: To determine the effectiveness of the therapeutic and prophylactic action of cedar nut oil toothpastes Kedra under Ringing Cedars of Russia sign.

2. Goals of the study: To evaluate the condition of patients' mouths prior to the use of the therapeutic and prophylactic cedar nut oil toothpastes Kedra.
- To study the cleansing properties of Kedra toothpastes after two and six weeks of use.
- To study the anti-inflammatory properties of cedar nut oil toothpastes Kedra after two and six weeks of use.
- To provide an evaluation of the organoleptic properties of Kedra toothpastes from the results of a survey.

3. Materials and methods of the study:
The study was carried out with the voluntary consent of patients of both sexes from 18 to 25 years of age. The test subjects did not have any medical contraindications, and undertook to use only the toothpaste issued to them. Prior to the beginning of the study, instructions were given to the test subjects regarding oral hygiene and the standard methods of brushing the teeth. It was recommended to all test subjects that they use brushes with soft and very soft bristles because of inflammation of the gums. No other forms of hygienic care for the mouth was permitted during the period of the study, as well as directed treatment of inflammatory diseases of the parodontium. Just before the study, all patients were given a professional cleaning of the oral cavity.

Twenty persons with chronic catarrhal gingivitis took part in the study.

Methods of brushing:

In the morning - Kedra with cedar nut oil and mint essential oil,
Evening - Kedra with Siberian cedar resin, cedar nut flour and cedar nut shell.

All patients underwent an interview process according to a specially developed questionnaire to evaluate the organoleptic properties of cedar nut oil toothpastes Kedra under Ringing Cedars of Russia sign.

Toothpaste with Siberian Cedar Nut Oil and Mint Essential Oil

Toothpaste KEDRA

In the study, indicators were recorded for the test subjects during their examination that classified the presence of dental tartar and plaque, and a clinical examination was made of the condition of the soft tissues of the mouth.

During the testing of the toothpastes, an evaluation of the level of oral hygiene was made according to the OHI-S index (Green, Vermillion, 1964), the tendency to bleed of the gums according to the GBI index (J. Silness, 1964, H. Loe, 1967), and the degree of gum inflammation according to the PMA index (C. Parma, 1960).

The cleansing effect was determined as a reduction of the OHI-S index according to the formula:

Effect (%) = 100 x [OHI-S(1) - OHI-S(2)]/OHI-S(1), where the indices OHI-S(1) and (2) refer to the first and subsequent examinations.

The hemostatic effect was determined as a reduction of the GBI index according to the formula:

Effect (%) = 100 x [GBI(1) - GBI(2)]/GBI(1), in which the indices GBI(1) and (2) refer to the first and subsequent examinations.

The anti-inflammatory effect was determined as a reduction of the PMA index according to the formula:

Effect (%) = 100 x [PMA(1) - PMA(2)]/PMA(1), in the formula the indices PMA(1) and (2) refer to the first and subsequent examinations.

4. Results of the study:

Only data received from the test subjects who had undergone the entire investigation in full were used. The average values of the indices being studied is presented in Table 1.

On examining the change in the level of oral hygiene when using cedar nut oil toothpastes Kedra, an improvement in oral hygiene was found in patients with gingivitis. The increase in the indicator of cleansing effectiveness after two weeks of use by 37%, and after six weeks by 45.5% from the initial state indicates a good cleansing effect of the cedar nut oil toothpastes being studied.

A study of the organoleptic properties of the Kedra toothpastes with cedar nut oil indicated that 68% of the patients evaluate the taste of the paste as pleasant, while 74% of patients mention the pleasant aroma of the toothpastes (Table 5). The toothpastes did not have any localized irritating or allergenic effects on the mucous membrane of the mouth, and did not stain the hard tissue of the tooth. Of the people studied, 75% noted a good level of frothiness of the toothpastes, and 88% of the patients mentioned a sensation of freshness in the mouth after brushing their teeth.

Thus, with the use of the Kedra toothpaste with Siberian cedar resin, cedar nut flour and cedar nut shell in the evening, and the Kedra toothpaste with cedar nut oil and mint essential oil in the morning, a marked cleansing and anti-inflammatory effect is noted for the toothpastes being investigated. Allergenic and localized irritating effects of the toothpastes on the mucous membrane of the mouth were not established in the course of the study. Taking into account the high anti-inflammatory and hemostatic effectiveness of the Kedra toothpastes, they should be recommended for use to patients with inflammatory diseases of the parodontium.

Natural Living: What is Cedar Nut Oil for?

If you are involved with cedar products, have read much literature about cedar nut oil, and are using cedar nut oil almost daily, occasionally you may be surprised by the question that sometimes arises: "Cedar nut oil, but what is it for?" Nevertheless, this question arises fairly often.

Life is astonishingly multifaceted and diverse. To the extent that different people will quite often find confirmation of completely different claims in one and the same phenomenon.

There exists a fairly large number of natural remedies, whose use gives good restorative and medicinal results. And it is probably not that important whether a person will choose this or that remedy, the main thing is that the person wanted to make his or her life better, wanted to obtain positive results, and in the end used the chosen remedy.

Some people use pharmaceutical multivitamin complexes and consider that they use them successfully, while some people do not trust pharmaceutics all that very much, and look for something natural, such as, for example, Red Sea products, aloe juice, or cedar nut oil. And it is impossible to say that this one is better, and that one is worse. The entire point is the person's choice and his or her intentions. The selection is considerable, and diverse information about natural health remedies may be found not only on the Internet, but in various magazines, newspapers, and on television.

Returning to the question, just what is cedar nut oil for, we can begin with the fact that, first and foremost, we have in mind a product for use in food, or a biologically active supplement - the oil of cedar nuts.

This is a virgin oil, obtained by cold pressing of kernels of cedar nuts from which the shells have been removed. Many people look precisely for virgin olive oil on supermarket shelves. This type of pressing makes it possible to preserve all the vitamins, biologically active substances, and trace elements in the oil. In this instance, cedar nut oil presents all the healthy properties of cedar nuts in a concentrated form, which indeed makes it such a valuable product.

Thus, cedar nut oil is a source of a valuable complex of vitamins, trace elements, and mineral substances. This contributes to its wide use as a natural multivitamin.

Cedar nut oil contains:

  • vitamin A, which promotes the growth of the body;
  • B group vitamins and vitamin D, which normalize the activity of the nervous system, improve the composition of the blood, and have a favourable effect on the skin;
  • vitamin E (55 mg in 100 g, tocopherol, in Greek, "I bear offspring");
  • cedar nut oil is a true concentrate of vitamin F - there is more of it in this oil than in Vitamin F preparations based on fish fat. Vitamin F assists in * the reduction of the level of cholesterol and prevents the formation of plaque on the walls of vessels;
  • the proteins of the oil include 19 amino acids, 70% of which are essential;
  • cedar nut oil contains a large proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids - linoleic, linolenic, oleic, arachidonic, palmitic, and stearic;
  • trace elements - phosphorus, copper, magnesium, zinc, manganese, cobalt, iodine;
  • magnesium - there is no other food product that can compare with cedar nut oil in the quantity of magnesium. Magnesium dilates the blood vessels and reduces the heightened excitability of the nervous system.

Thanks to the fact that so many vitamins and healthy substances are combined in cedar nut oil, it is also used in folk medicine as a stimulant for the immune system in cases of various symptoms of indisposition or vitamin insufficiency. Cedar nut oil is also used for preventive purposes as a general fortifying remedy to fight chronic fatigue syndrome, to increase physical and mental work capacity, and for the preventive treatment of age-related illnesses, such as atherosclerosis, disorders of the digestive organs and heart.

Several alternative methods exist for the use of the oil. For preventive purposes, the most effective is the following: 1 teaspoon taken 30 to 60 minutes before meals, 2 to 3 times a day, for a period of 40 to 60 days; however, a noticeable effect is also obtained from a single, daily dose of one tablespoon of cedar nut oil on an empty stomach. To assimilate it best, it is preferable to absorb the oil in the mouth.

Virgin cedar nut oil has an attractive light-amber colour and a pleasant nutty fragrance. Its flavour qualities surpass the best grades of olive oil and almond oil, and the strength of its medicinal effect exceeds sea buckthorn, burdock, coconut, and high grade olive oil.

Cedar nut oil has also been used for a long time as a valuable vegetable oil for the preparation of food and various sweets. Of course, it could be afforded only by residents of the taiga and neighboring provinces, as well as well-off people who knew about the amazing properties of cedar nut oil.

Residents of Siberia prepared a "vegetable milk" and "vegetable cream" from cedar nuts. The kernels were extracted from the dried nuts, they were dried more, the skin was cleaned off by hand rubbing. The dry kernels were crushed in wooden mortars, hot water was added a little at a time. The gruel-like substance obtained was poured into a cast iron or clay pot, and was brought to a boil in a Russian stove - and the cream was ready. Before use, boiling water was added to the cream, and vegetable, or cedar nut milk was obtained. In its fat content, cedar nut cream is twice as rich as dairy cream, and two and a half times as rich as meat. The calorie content of cedar cream is higher than all the products named. Nut cream and milk, as a medicinal remedy, have been used by folk medicine since days of old. In 1786 the Academician P. S. Pallas wrote that the vegetable cream "is used in chemist's shops, a milk is made from it, a milk that is prescribed for chest illnesses, the cream is used effectively by people with consumption."

There exist a large number of excellent culinary recipes both using cedar nut oil as well as using cedar nuts, and cedar flour. Interesting recipes and also much useful information about the use of cedar nut oil and other cedar products may be found in books.

Cedar nut oil is an ecologically pure product without any contraindications, and is most completely assimilated by the human body.

Cedar nut oil is not an inexpensive product, and cannot be inexpensive by virtue of the special features of its production. But the price of cedar nut oil is completely comparable to the price of pharmaceutical multivitamins, which often provoke allergic reactions and have a fairly questionable effectiveness. Abroad, cedar nut oil is very highly valued, it is no accident that Western companies try to buy up and export cedar nuts by fair means or foul.

Yet another area where cedar nut oil is used is cosmetics and personal care products. The presence of biologically active substances, and especially the large quantity of vitamin F, makes cedar nut oil a wonderful base.

Whole Rose Hip Oil Extract

In conclusion, when speaking about the truly marvellous properties of cedar nut oil, we would like to note that, of course, cedar nut oil, just as other natural products, is not a panacea or a medication for all diseases and ailments. Rather, a panacea may be considered to be the daily, practical efforts made for the good of one's health. A broad, systematic, and rational approach is always required - both for prevention as well as for treatment. It is in this type of rational and multifaceted approach that cedar nut oil may become one of the basic constituents for effective treatment.

If we speak of the daily use of cedar nut oil as vegetable oil, then here, as in everything, it is good to have limits. On the Internet you can find the enthusiastic opinions of a woman who writes that she even fries potatoes in cedar nut oil. Perhaps this is a good thing, but most probably not all together rational. After all, cedar nut oil is fairly expensive, and it is well known that prolonged heating breaks down the vitamins and biologically active substances. And besides, the excessive use of even the most beneficial substance may do harm.

So, I wish to conclude this essay with wishes that you take care of your health in a well-rounded way and, mainly, that you do it daily, and use cedar nut oil in your food in moderation, preferably in the "raw" state.

Yes, and remember that it is best to store cedar nut oil in the refrigerator.

With wishes for health and joy.

Cedar Nut Oil with Sea Buckthorn Extract

The Sea buckthorns (Hippophae L.) are deciduous shrubs in the genus Hippophae, family Elaeagnaceae. It is also referred to as "sea buckthorn", seabuckthorn, sandthorn or seaberry.

Description and distribution

There are 6 species and 12 subspecies native over a wide area of Europe and Asia, including China, Mongolia, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Great Britain, France, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Finland, Sweden and Norway. More than 90 percent or about 1.5 million hectares of the world's sea buckthorn resources can be found in China where the plant is exploited for soil and water conservation purposes. The shrubs reach 0.5-6 m tall, rarely up to 10 m in central Asia, and typically occur in dry, sandy areas. They are tolerant of salt in the air and soil, but demand full sunlight for good growth and do not tolerate shady conditions near larger trees.

The common Sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) is by far the most widespread, with a range extending from the Atlantic coasts of Europe right across to northwestern China. In western Europe, it is largely confined to sea coasts where salt spray off the sea prevents other larger plants from out-competing it, but in central Asia it is more widespread in dry semi-desert sites where other plants cannot survive the dry conditions; in central Europe and Asia it also occurs as a subalpine shrub above tree line in mountains, and other sunny areas such as river banks.

Common Sea buckthorn has branches that are dense and stiff, and very thorny. The leaves are a distinct pale silvery-green, lanceolate, 3-8 cm long and less than 7 mm broad. It is dioecious, with separate male and female plants. The male produces brownish flowers which produce wind-distributed pollen.

Berries and leaves

The female plants produce orange berries 6-9 mm in diameter, soft, juicy and rich in oils. The berries are an important winter food resource for some birds, notably fieldfares.

Leaves are eaten by the larva of the coastal race of the ash pug moth and by larvae of other Lepidoptera including brown-tail, dun-bar, emperor moth, mottled umber and Coleophora elaeagnisella.

Hippophae salicifolia (willow-leaved Sea buckthorn) is restricted to the Himalaya, to the south of the common Sea buckthorn, growing at high altitudes in dry valleys; it differs from H. rhamnoides in broader (to 10 mm broad), greener (less silvery) leaves, and yellow berries. A wild variant occurs in the same area, but at even higher altitudes in the alpine zone. It is a low shrub not growing taller than 1 m with small leaves 1-3 cm long.

Harvesting and landscaping

Harvesting is difficult due to the dense thorn arrangement among the berries on each branch. A common harvesting technique is to remove an entire branch, though this is destructive to the shrub and reduces future harvests. A branch removed in this way is next frozen, allowing the berries to be easily shaken off. The branches are cut, deep frozen to -32C, then shaken or abraded for removal of the berries.

The worker then crushes the berries to remove up to 95% of the leaves and other debris. This causes the berries to melt slightly from the surface as the work takes place at ambient temperature (about 20C). Berries or the crushed pulp are later frozen for storage.

The most effective way to harvest berries and not damage branches is by using a berry-shaker. Mechanical harvesting leaves up to 50% in the field and the berries can be harvested only once in two years. They only get about 25% of the yield that could be harvested with this relatively new machinery.

During the Cold War, Russian and East German horticulturists developed new varieties with greater nutritional value, larger berries, different ripening months and a branch that is easier to harvest. Over the past 20 years, experimental crops have been grown in the United States, one in Nevada and one in Arizona, and in several provinces of Canada.

Sea buckthorn is also a popular garden and landscaping shrub, particularly making a good vandal-proof barrier hedge with an aggressive basal shoot system exploited in some parts of the world as wind breaks and to stabilize riverbanks and steep slopes. They have value in northern climates for their landscape qualities, as the colorful berry clusters are retained through winter. Branches may be used by florists for designing ornaments. The plant is the regional flora of the Finnish region of Satakunta.

Nutrients and potential health effects

Sea buckthorn berries are multipurposed, edible and nutritious, though very acidic and astringent, unpleasant to eat raw, unless 'bletted' (frosted to reduce the astringency) and/or mixed as a juice with sweeter substances such as apple or grape juice.

When the berries are pressed, the resulting Sea buckthorn oil separates into three layers: on top is a thick, orange cream; in the middle, a layer containing Sea buckthorn's characteristic high content of saturated and polyunsaturated fats; and the bottom layer is sediment and juice. Containing fat sources applicable for cosmetic purposes, the upper two layers can be processed for skin creams and liniments, whereas the bottom layer can be used for edible products like syrup.

One of the most beneficial products from these berries is Sea Buckthorn Oil.

Nutrient and phytochemical constituents of Sea buckthorn berries have potential value as antioxidants that may affect inflammatory disorders, cancer or other diseases.

The fruit of the plant has a high vitamin C content-in a range of 114 to 1550 mg per 100 grams with an average content (695 mg per 100 grams) about 12 times greater than Oranges - placing Sea buckthorn fruit among the most enriched plant sources of vitamin C. The fruit also contains dense contents of carotenoids, vitamin E, amino acids, dietary minerals, B-sitosterol and polyphenolic acids.

Apart from being nourishing, the juice has a freezing point of -22 degrees Celsius allowing it to remain a liquid even in sub-zero temperatures.

Consumer products

Seabuckthorn Oil has been used as traditional therapy for diseases and great skin carer product. As no applications discussed in this section have been verified by Western science and sufficient clinical trial evidence, such knowledge remains mostly unreferenced outside of Asia and is communicated mainly from person to person.

Grown widely throughout its native China and other mainland regions of Asia, Sea buckthorn is an herbal medicine used over centuries to relieve cough, aid digestion, invigorate blood circulation and alleviate pain. In Mongolia, extracts of Sea buckthorn branches and leaves are used to treat gastrointestinal distress in humans and animals.

Bark and leaves are used for treating diarrhea and gastrointestinal and dermatologic disorders. Topical compressions are used for rheumatoid arthritis. Flowers may be used as a skin softener.

For its hemostatic and anti-inflammatory effects, berry fruits are added to medications for pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiac, blood and metabolic disorders in Indian, Chinese and Tibetan medicines. Sea buckthorn berry components have potential anticarcinogenic activity.

Fresh juice, syrup and berry or seed oils are used for colds, fever, exhaustion, as an analgesic or treatment for stomach ulcers, cancer, skin care and metabolic disorders.

Called 'Chharma' in some native languages, oil from fruits and seeds is used for liver diseases, inflammation, disorders of the gastrointestinal system, including peptic ulcers and gastritis, eczema, canker sores and other ulcerative disorders of mucosal tissues, wounds, inflammation, burns, frostbite, psoriasis, rosacea, lupus erythematosus, and chronic dermatoses. In ophthalmology, berry extracts have been used for keratosis, trachoma, eyelid injuries and conjunctivitis. The Sea buckthorn oil is also known to kill tiny parasitic mites called Demodex.

Sea Buckthorn Oil

Due to its unique botanical and nutritional properties, and there being no reported evidence of Sea buckthorn oil causing adverse reactions or negative side effects, the oil is also used as a natural agent that may benefit diseases of mucous membranes, including Aphthous ulcers, esophagitis, acid reflux, and peptic ulcers, as well as dermatological diseases and skin conditions.

In Russia and China, pulp oil may also be used topically to treat skin burns from radiation. Due to its ability to absorb ultraviolet rays, pulp oil is purported to reduce risk of radiation burns for Russian astronauts working in space.

Currently, cosmetic companies are adding Sea Buckthorn Oil to anti-aging preparations for skin rejuvenation and accelerated healing properties. It is also being used topically as a natural treatment for eczema, acne rosacea, acne and acne scars, and as a lotion for minimizing stretch marks.

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.

My name is Alexia Aleman. I am an avid actress, writer, and film maker. I am trying to reach Vladmir in regards to making a film about Anastatia here in the United States. I am sure that Vladimir is a very busy man but it has really been put on my heart to help bring the wisdom, knowledge, beauty, and truth of Anastasia to the big movie screen not in only in the United States but to the rest of the world as well...

Upon first reading Anastasia I knew immediately that this is something that people would reveal in and that people would find comfort in her words and her wisdom. Not only that, but people would feel better after having seen these books portrayed into film with their own eyes. Her innocence, her purity, her wisdom they would inspire and move people to be better people and to seek the truth.

What began as a mere passing thought has been pulling at the strings of my heart. It is so strong, this feeling, that I am compelled to write and honor that overwhelming feeling as it seems to grow more and more with each passing day. It's almost as if the feeling has been growing inside of me and I can feeling it coming to life inside of me. I know it may sound crazy, but I just had to write you.

God Bless you in all your endeavors as you help the world to see the beauty of life in it's purest form.

Warm Regards,
Alexia Aleman

In January this year I read the books...

It is probably needless to say, but anyway I was overwhelmed by the pure, simplicity and truth of these books.
And an absolute solution for the problems in the world and I think all the problems, as I may say so.

Thank you very much. from heart to heart.

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.

Young Living's line of pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and essential oil blends are sourced from the world's finest plants.
