    Veronica Tilden DO|May 30, 2024

    Are you treating your cell phone with more respect? This is critical if you want to regain vibrant health. There are natural electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by the earth, the atmosphere and the sun. The body uses these natural fields for biological functions and cellular communication. These natural EMFs are interrupted, blocked and drowned out by man-made EMFs. What can you do? Reconnect with the natural EMFs that your body depends on to function properly. A simple way is to go bare foot on the earth. Choose a place that does not have...

    Have you given up your toxic plastic water bottles yet? Another very effective action is to use unscented laundry detergent and avoid the dryer sheets. Laundry perfume is not very attractive and is definitely toxic. The second big toxin category is man-made electromagnetic fields (EMFs). There are four main types. Electric fields exposure comes from your house wiring, smart meter, electric blanket and corded appliances.

  • Mental Health Matters

    May 16, 2024

    May is Mental Health Month and as times have changed, mental health has become a number one concern in today’s society. For a lot of us, mental health was something that just was not discussed back in our day. Most certainly people had issues then too. Yet, it seems mental health has had a negative connotation leaving many afraid to seek help and for some resulted in some type of destructive behavior or ended in tragedy. We wonder why mental health has been placed on the back burner. Perhaps it’s because of the manner in how these types of iss...

    Light from man-made sources does not match sunlight. It gives your body incorrect information from your environment and affects your biological functions. Avoid artificial light before sunrise and after dark. Most people work in environments where they are exposed to artificial light during the day. If possible, avoid fluorescent and LED lights, and use incandescent light bulbs instead. These are closer to natural light. And get outside for at least a few minutes throughout the day. Until you have seen the sunrise and given your circadian...

    Principle 10 of good nutrition: Eat plant and animal foods raised on healthy soils Foods from healthy soils are far more nutritious. Unfortunately many soils today are depleted of critical minerals that were once abundant. Modern agriculture uses chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Beef are finished in filthy, crowded feed lots. Chickens are stacked on top of each other, pigs can barely turn around, and neither see the sunshine. Most of these animals receive hormones and antibiotics and other unnatural chemicals. These practices...

    Veronica Tilden DO|Mar 21, 2024

    Bones?! Yes. Bones are an excellent source of nutrients, and all traditional cultures, past and present, use them. They can be cooked until soft, fermented, or used to make bone broth. People from many cultures chew on the ends of soft bones. Bone broth is an important base for fine cuisine. The best broth is that you make yourself. Do not use bullion cubes, aseptic packages or canned items on the grocery shelf. Sometimes you can find it frozen. Broth is made using marrow and joint bones and collagen rich animal parts, such as chicken feet,...
