The globalization of corn means most people have never eaten a real tortilla

Reading about nixtamalized corn many years ago is how I started to delve into the world of nutrition. Most corn is big agra/hybridized/gmo. It is then processed in a way that is completely incompatible with our digestive systems, leading to leaky gut and digestive dysfunction. But for thousands of years, native Americans successfully ate corn with no problem. This is why.

“It’s crucial we differentiate between a nixtamalized corn tortilla and other corn-based products which are not tortillas,” Mier says. Like many, he worries that there are “whole generations of young Mexicans and Americans who have never tasted an authentic tortilla, made from nixtamalized landrace corn, and who think that a tortilla made from Maseca is how corn tastes.” Heirloom tortillas might be the latest food trend, but behind each bite is a more complicated story about Mexico's traditional foodways.

Artist Vibrates 48 Water Pools Using Her Emotions

I used to think that controlling every aspect of my diet was the path to good health. However, severe stress regarding perfectionist eating (orthorexia, another topic for another day!) lead me to integrate the emotional aspect to our health. Energy is mostly invisible, and therefore largely ignored. This is an amazing display to showcase how important that invisible mental state is! Futuristic artist Lisa Park created an installation in which she can control 48 pools of water using an EEG device that pickups on her brainwaves.


Why do some have luck with certain diets or lifestyles, when others do not? Answer: it all has to do with that inner voice. The tricky thing about the amount of information we receive nowadays is that it throws off our center. Constant information at our fingertips is a blessing and a curse, but more often than not it...

To Get Calcium, Navajos Burn Juniper Branches To Eat The Ash

It's common thought that without dairy, one would become calcium deficient. But not so! Most people get plenty of calcium in other foods (it's just not being absorbed properly, due to so many cofactors - all of which nutritional therapy can address). And then there are the tried and true methods of calcium supplementation of yore: such as juniper ash! Most American Indians are lactose intolerant, which means they need to find nutrients outside of dairy sources. It turns out that a return to traditional cooking methods can be key to good health.
