An interesting take on a common autoimmune disease.
“Hashimoto’s disease is an organ specific autoimmune disease – meaning it affects the thyroid. But at its core, it is rooted in inflammation that may begin outside of the thyroid in a substantial number of cases . One of the most common sources of inflammation that eventually leads to autoimmune conditions is intestinal hyperpermeability, or ‘leaky gut.’”
This is truly amazing! I hope that it works as well as they think it will, as our oceans need it.
“Earth’s oceans are overloaded with plastic bags and other kinds of synthetic debris, which can be deadly for aquatic animals and detrimental to the marine environment in general…Fortunately, there are some people who are concerned about this problem and are going to do something about it. Remember that 19 year old inventor (now 21) that developed the brilliant “ocean cleanup array” plan that we reported about? In 2013, Boyan Slat, founder and CEO of Dutch-registered nonprofit organization The Ocean Cleanup, developed a trash collector which was promised to clean up the world’s oceans in just 5 years. Now, he announced that this ambitious project is going to be deployed in 2016.”
This is fascinating. Old remedies coming back to life!
“Researchers at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute have been experimenting with different clays, and it appears in research presented in the journal PLoS ONE that they’ve come across a family of antibacterial clays capable of killing pathogens ranging from E. coli to methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as hard-to-kill MRSA.
Clays have been used as medical tools for ages, appearing in ancient medical texts going back as far as 3,000 B.C.”

Love both the recipe, and the history!
“Portable soup was the first bouillon. And, like all foods, it was homemade. Cooks would stew bones in water for hours and hours, reducing the gelatin-rich stock down to a thick, viscous liquid that solidified when cooled. Later, the thick, gelled broth would be cut and dried on flannel during the cool months where it could be stored indefinitely.
When circumstances took the family on the road, they’d grab the nuggets of portable soup – dissolving them in hot water, sprinkling in salt and cutting in whatever herbs and vegetables they could forage from the roadside. In an instant, the traveler’s would have a meal – but unlike the instant meals of today, this was real food.”
I love the simplicity of this recipe! Plus, I love the combination of peaches and coconut milk. Yum!
