Cranberries, a True Superfood at Your Store

No Comments 30 December 2013

Cranberries are in season. These red berries are a true superfood.

Weight LossCranberries, a True Superfood at Your Store With Childrens Book
The December issue of Nutrition Journal has just published some new research, which demonstrates that flavonoids, present in high levels in cranberries promote healthy weight in those who regularly consumes cranberries.

Earlier this month Dr. Michael Greger published an article “Which Fruit Fights Cancer Better?” about cranberries. These berries were found to suppress the growth of human liver cancer cells in vitro. Other studies have found similar effects against human breast, colon, brain tumor, oral, and ovarian cancer cells. Cranberries also possess strong anti-cancer properties in cases with prostate cancer. 1

Cardiovascular Health
Berries are a good source of polyphenols, especially anthocyanins, micronutrients, and fiber. In epidemiological and clinical studies, these constituents have been associated with improved cardiovascular risk profiles. 2 Scientists recommend cranberries along with other berries as a heart-healthy diet.

Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections
Cranberries contain two compounds that seem to help keep certain bacteria (like E. coli) from attaching to the urinary tract wall. Studies offer evidence that women who drink cranberry juice may suffer fewer symptomatic urinary tract infections.

Add Cranberries to Green Smoothies
Fresh cranberries are usually very tart and not so tasty. In my family we add a handful of cranberries daily to our green smoothies. I usually buy several extra bags and freeze them, so that we can have them after the season is over.

Sergei’s New Music Video

1 Comment 27 November 2012

Dear Friends,

Once, when I was ten years old, my father told me that the best gifts are the gifts we give ourselves. I didn’t believe him. “It cannot be so”, I thought. On my next birthday my father invited me to go to the mountains to pick wild strawberries and blueberries so that my mother could prepare a jam from them for the winter.

Make great tasting green smoothies

We left early in the morning even before the buses started running and walked all the way from our apartment to the forest and hiked all day long with a short break for lunch. We found lots of berries and gorged on them until our mouths became sore from eating them.

We returned home in the late afternoon carrying lots of berries. My father brought a large bucket and I carried a smaller container, approximately three liters (3 quarts) in size. I was tired and proud of all my accomplishments, helping family and being able to work all day. I remember how my father explained that we covered about sixteen kilometers (10 miles) that day. My father and I returned home just in time for a special supper my mother prepared for my birthday. The food seemed to be super tasty. My parents presented me with some toy; I don’t remember now what it was. At the table father asked me if I had a good birthday. “I had the best birthday!” I replied, feeling deeply happy inside. I finally understood what my father had meant about the gifts we give ourselves.

Since then, I have always tried to gift myself in this way on special occasions. I enjoyed jumping in a ice-cold rivers on New Eve’s Days, finishing books by my birthday, participated in races, and even fasting on water on Mother’s Day.

Naturally, I encouraged my three children to adopt this way of celebrating and they love doing so. Today, November 27, Sergei is celebrating his 28th birthday. He has created a new song, and has put together a new funny video clip to go with it. Enjoy!

Thistle Green Smoothie

No Comments 18 June 2012

Thistle Green Smoothie


Green Smoothie Recipe with ThistleCan we really eat that thorny looking thing? That’s what Valya and I asked Sergei when he began cutting the sow thistle into the bucket during our morning walk.

“You are in for a big surprise,” he replied.

That was the best green smoothie I’ve tasted so far! I went back to the path and took some photos to share with you. If you have them growing in your proximities, you are in for a treat. Invite somebody who owns a good high-speed blender to hike with you, because you will need one for this plant.

You will need gloves, whether rubber, plastic or cloth, and scissors. Cut the sticky plants directly into the bucket, then go straight home and blended it.Five minutes after picking the greens with Sergei, Valya and I were sipping this scrumptious smoothie. It doesn’t get fresher than that! Sow Thistle

Jawcerciser Patented

Dear Friends,

Last week I have finally received a large yellow envelope with the U.S. patent for my jawcercisers inside.
Green Smoothie Recipe with Thistle
I am very happy that my invention has now been officially recognized because I believe that this is a miraculous device that has strong potential to improve dental health naturally, especially for children.

Now that I have a patent, I would like to sell the rights to this invention to a professional company, as I am not a dentist and don’t have the capacity to market and distribute it properly. I have received several offers from large corporations, but I would prefer to see my jawcercisers go to a holistic dental company that is interested in preventive medicine as well as in natural medicine approach.

I was very happy to notice that often the same people have been purchasing jaw exercisers on an ongoing basis, including several naturopathic doctors, a choir director from New York, and a speech-language therapist from Los Angeles. The jaw exerciser improves one’s jawbone density when it’s used on a regular basis.

As always we would greatly appreciate anyone’s honest and constructive feedback about your experience with jawcercisers. To send us your comments, please Click Here

One common question we receive from customers is, what is the difference between white (resin) and tan (silicon) jawcercisers, and why are they different in price? The silicon jaw exercisers are made for those who have an allergy to resin. Unfortunately, they don’t last as long. The resin (white) exercisers last several times longer and that’s why we have discounted the silicon jawcercisers.

To celebrate our patent, we offer a special deal on jaw exercisers for the rest of this month.

Natural resin (white) jaw exerciser – $15.01
Natural silicone (tan) jaw exerciser – $10.01
