Our first question is from Linda, who wants to know which green powders we recommend, and how to choose a high quality brand.
Soils are over-farmed and the resulting fruits and vegetables don’t contain as many nutrients as they once did. Which means that, even if you eat a rainbow every day, you still need to supplement some essential nutrients. We would recommend Vitaforce. The founder and owner of the brand actually created this powder to heal her own body. Allison has been using it for years; it contains all the greens, vitamins and minerals you need, and it doesn’t taste like garbage.
Our second question comes from Belle and was posted in our Facebook Group. Belle wants to know our thoughts on CBD. Is it a fad, or a healing tool?
Suzy is involved in the green revolution currently occurring in California—CBD is definitely not a fad! CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component of hemp, and it is very healing. CBD interacts with our own cannabidiol receptors and helps with pain management, insomnia, anxiety, Alzheimer’s and tumor reduction, among other things. It also packs a more powerful antioxidant punch than Vitamin C! For the science behind the claims, check out www.projectcbd.org. CBD is completely nontoxic and non-addictive. But as with every product, some brands are better than others—choose one that uses high doses of high quality CBD extract.
Unfortunately, the government has now got a patent on CBD, despite the fact this is a completely natural substance. What’s more, the DEA has classified it as a Category 1 controlled substance, despite the fact it will not get you high. But there is a growing movement towards acceptance of this healing plant. An increasing number of studies show the therapeutic benefits of both CBD and THC, and more than half the country’s states have legalized the medical use of marijuana.

Finally, our third question comes from Sabrina. She wants to know why teeth become prone to cavities, and what we can do about it.
This is a topic we’re incredibly passionate about. Some dentists just drill for the sake of it, even when there are no cavities. But even when cavities ARE present, you don’t necessarily need to get a filling. When you break a bone, your body heals itself. Bones can regenerate, and while teeth are a little different to bone, they’re very similar. According to Dr. Robert Nara, your teeth can heal themselves, all you need to do is use the right tools. If you have enough calcium and magnesium in your diet and in your saliva, you can heal your teeth. Check out Dr. Nara’s book How to be Dentally Self Sufficient. Suzy’s favorite tooth-care tool is baking-soda tooth powder, because it alkalizes your mouth and helps keep your mouth super clean. But she’s got a few other tips too!
