Healing With Whole Foods
wholefoods My Rank : 810
I first became interested in natural medicine at the age of 18. As a teenager, I experienced many severe health problems such as severe acne, depression, anxiety, low energy, and hypoglycemia (pre-diabetes). As a last resort, I went to see a Naturopathic physician. While skeptical at first, having been brought up on prescription drugs and a Standard American Diet (SAD), I decided to try the changes suggested by the Naturopath. I switched to a whole foods diet, cut out dairy products, started taking vitamins and other supplements, and began exercising and practicing meditation. Within a year, most of my health problems were gone. I have since studied more about natural medicine and tried hundreds of health products. My favorite book is "Healing With Whole Foods" by Paul Pitchford. I have found that a simple, whole-foods based diet, along with some key supplements, exercise, and stress reduction is a great recipe for health. May others find the key to good health, too!

Switched from Fish Oil; Worth a Try for Vegans/Vegetarians

Posted by wholefoods on Oct 28, 2012

I recently switched from fish oil to this algae-based DHA due to some concerns over the quality and sustainability practices of major fish oil companies. I have been taking 3 capsules (600mg of DHA) for a few weeks. So far it seems like this product is working similarly to the fish oil. I do have a few concerns with this product. One concern is that there is no EPA, so I will try to get that from another source. Another concern is the price, which is quite a bit higher than with fish oil supplements. I will continue to give this product a try and re-evaluate whether to purchase again. Overall, I think if you are a vegan or vegetarian and are interested in getting DHA from an algae source, this is one of the cheaper products on the market and certainly worth a try.

Rich Taste, One of the Best

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 15, 2012

I found this product to have a very rich and creamy flavor. I like that the company works with smaller co-ops and the fact that this is a fair trade product. The chocolate itself isn't too rich and the taste is just right, not too sweet. I find all of Equal Exchange's chocolate products to be of the highest quality, this being no exception. I will certainly order this product again.

Solid Fish Oil, from Small Bodied Fish, Sustainable

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 15, 2012

I purchased this product because I was looking for a cheap fish oil supplement that was of reasonably high quality and wouldn't leave me with any "fish burps". I found this product to be of high quality overall. I like the fact that the fish oil comes from small bodied fish which are more sustainably caught that larger fish. I would recommend this product for people looking for a reasonably priced fish oil without any fish oil side effects.

A Solid Combination; Great to Mix with Green Drinks

Posted by wholefoods on Oct 28, 2012

I purchased this product to mix with Green Drink Powders. I use 1 scoop of this along with Chlorella and Spirulina in some apple juice. I think the combination works well together. I appreciate that hemp is a complete protein that includes some healthy fats. The amount of E3 live is quite small (1g per serving) and I wouldn't necessarily purchase just for the E3. The addition of maca was interesting as I hadn't tried it before. It seems like a solid combination of ingredients overall. As for the taste, I found it to be quite neutral. This product doesn't contain any sweeteners and I found I needed to mix it with something like fruit juice for the best tolerance. The texture is grainy due to the hemp. If you don't mind a slightly more "natural" taste, I would recommend this product as a good protein powder to add to other drinks.

Very Thick Sunscreen; Caused Some Skin Problems

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 16, 2012

I purchased this product when I was looking for a more natural sunscreen. I had previously used MyChelle's "Sun Shield" which worked quiet well, but was somewhat expensive. When I first tried this product, I found it to be very thick in consistency. I could really feel the product on my skin and especially on my face. I also noticed that my skin broke out when using the product on my face. It seems to create a thick barrier on your face which doesn't allow your skin to breathe properly. I will probably use this product on my arms and body, but I wouldn't use again on my face and I won't reorder once the product is gone.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 15, 2012

Corny, I know, but this product makes me think of those ridiculous chia pet commercials. The product itself is high quality, as I have come to expect from Bob's Red Mill. The seeds were fresh and lasted several months in my refrigeration. With all of Chia's health benefits, from it's Omega 3 profile, to fiber, to vitamins, it is truly one of the powerhouse superfoods available today. I would order this product again and enjoy in smoothies or oatmeal.

Smooth Lip Balm, Good Taste

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 16, 2012

I got this product for free. I'm not especially interested in lip balm flavor, but this one seems to be pretty good. The vanilla flavor is subtle and my lips stay moisturised during the day. As for whether this is "completely kissable", I'll leave review of that item to others. Solid lip balm and recommended for the price.

Paprika, Just what you Expect

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 15, 2012

I bought this product to add to rice and bean dishes. The product is very fresh and vibrant. It has a strong red color and delicate, spicy flavor. I don't need to use too much of the paprika in dishes, so I expect this jar to last a long time. A great value and good product to add to your spice cabinet.

Nice for Apple Pie or Cider

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 15, 2012

This is a nice blend of cinammon, nutmeg, and ginger, 3 anti-inflammatory herbs that also happen to taste great in drinks or in baked goods. You can also use this product in ciders, pancakes, waffles, or cookies. It's a nice, warming blend that works in many different recipes.
