Getting Our Kids To Eat Healthy by Dr. Asa Andrew

One of the challenges that bother me the most is seeing our kids overweight and unhealthy. Each day on the radio and television broadcasts I discuss a variety of topics and latest health news. When I started seeing the trends in our young people such as 1 out of 3 of kids under the age of 11 being diagnosed with diabetes.

Green peas have been largely overlooked in research studies on legumes, which have tended to concentrate only on beans. In studies where the health benefits of green peas have been directly examined, it's usually been in their dried versus fresh form.

Essentials For The Respiratory System

Whether it’s allergies, asthma, cold, sinus congestion or other, essential oils can greatly assist you and work very effectively. But let’s first understand what might be causing any respiratory dysfunctions to begin with.I personally learned that with my intense seasonal allergies as a young adult, once I switched to a wholesome diet all of my issues disappeared. I wasn’t really sure why, other than diet is a key or culprit to our health results, until a few years back in understanding the body’s channels of elimination.


Your body’s ‘primary channels’ of elimination are your:

  • colon
  • kidney
  • liver

Your body’s ‘secondary channels’ of elimination are basically your:

Essentials for a "HAPPY TUMMY"

There are those times when your tummy just isn’t happy with your choices of foods and you know it because of the discomfort you have. Let’s consider the cause and some possible solutions from nature.
