Depression and Antidepressants – What They Don’t Want You to Know

Mind of your ownIn the summer of 2001, after being on Prozac for more than a decade, I made the life-altering decision to go off of antidepressants.

Despite what doctors and nearly everyone else around me were saying – that I had a chemical imbalance and that antidepressants were essential to keep me going – I believed otherwise. Intuitively, I knew that there was a better way to live, yet almost no one in my support system was in agreement with this line of thinking.

For the millions of people facing depression and who have similar doubts about medication being the only answer, a book has arrived that completely validates our concerns.

In the New York Times best-seller A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives, Dr. Kelly Brogan, an MIT and Cornell-trained psychiatrist, gives us the hard facts about antidepressants and busts all of the widely believed myths about this class of drugs.

In fact, the medical community is so terrified of the truth being exposed in A Mind of Your Own that Dr. Brogan and this book have been blacklisted by the mainstream media. Yes, blacklisted!  Why? Read more »


Wednesdays at Whole Foods – Digital Savings, Fair Strawberries, Smart Moves at 365

whole-foods-digital-coupons

On the first Wednesday of every other month, I have a column called Wednesdays at Whole Foods. It showcases the most interesting news, exclusive products, store events, and happenings at the company.

DIGITAL COUPONS MADE SIMPLE

In the October 2015 column, I talked at length about Whole Foods Market’s new app and all of its functionality.

Well, one great feature has since been added: digital coupons. And this is reason enough to download the app.

Here’s how it works.

You do your shopping and when you get to the check-out register, simply scan the bar code and it will automatically deduct any eligible coupons. It’s that effortless.

If using an app isn’t your thing, the company still offers printable coupons.

DOING THE RIGHT THING

In what has received little media attention but is of tremendous importance, Whole Foods Market expanded its partnership with the Fair Food Program — an organization that brings together workers, consumers, growers and retailers in support of humane labor standards and fairer wages in U.S. agriculture — to become the first food retailer to offer strawberries certified by the Fair Food Program.

Why This Should Terrify Everyone – Nearly 100% of Germans are Contaminated with the Super-Toxic Glyphosate

Crop Dusting

While GMOs and the lack of mandatory GMO-labeling in the U.S. seem to be getting everyone’s attention these days, a bigger and more dangerous story may very well be the toxic chemicals that are sprayed on our crops.

The most widely used chemical of them all, glyphosate, which just happens to be the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, has been generating its own fair share of news lately.

And this news is very troubling, to say the least.   Read more »


HUGE NEWS: General Mills to Label GMOs, Becomes Second Major U.S. Food Company to Do So

general mills

Following in the footsteps of Campbell’s Soup, General Mills has just announced that it will label all GMOs in its products.

In its press release, the company says that with Vermont’s GMO-labeling bill going into effect on July 1st, it wouldn’t make sense to label GMOs in its products just for that state. So, whatever GMO-labeling requirements that Vermont will mandate, General Mills will put those same labels on its products for every state in the country. Read more »
