Each moment of each day we have a choice. It's the same choice in all the moments too (which you think would make it easier). But it's not. It's one of the hardest, most challenging choices we can possibly make. Making this choice will force us to stretch, grow, be uncomfortable and be fully responsible for our experiences and how we feel about them. The choice I'm talking about is our choice to genuinely enjoy life. Not JUST the good parts, but all of it. Even the sadness. Even the grief. Even the frustration or pain we sometimes go through. Easier said than done, right? We told you, it wasn't an easy choice. But it IS a choice we can make. We always have the choice to complain, blame, judge and look at all that is negative in our world. We also always have the choice to be grateful, seek out the good, learn from what challenges us and embrace each day, moment and experience as the adventure I believe life is meant to be. Here are 10 ways that adopting the "Enjoy life Philosophy" will benefit your health, happiness and relationships... 1) We attract more of the kind of people we want to spend our lives with (like attracts like). 2) We’ll be way healthier, because lets be honest, it doesn’t take a scientist to understand that being happy is good for our health. If you do need a scientist, then check out the Science of Happiness. 3) We’llgo on the most epic adventures and have the best stories to share because in the flow of following our bliss we’ll have so many unforeseen side excursions that willbe unpredictably awesome 4) People will talk behind our backs about how free spirited and amazing we are. 5) We will wake up stoked for the day ahead knowing, that no matter what happens, we're going to embrace it, enjoy it as best we can and at the very least, walk away with some "real moments" or new life lessons. 6) Nobody will tell us who to be or what to do… except for ourselves of course. 7) We will get those sweet wrinkles around our eyes that happy old people have because of the goofy smile we wear. 8) When we look at our calendar we’ll say, "Holy crap I live an awesome life, look at all the LFT’s (Look Forward To’s) I have coming up! 9) Instead of worrying about where to spend our money we’ll be dreaming up cooler ways to spend our time. 10) We will have a deep understanding (through experience) that life or the Universe truly supports us to be happy when we support ourselves to be happy. Those are just ten of the many reasons for why we should adopt a mindset that no matter what happens, we're going to choose to enjoy and embrace life as it unfolds. Filling our calendars with memorable moments and LFT's (Look Forward Tos') is what keeps us connected to the magic and joy of what it is to be alive. Living this way requires getting over our old stories that causes us to believe that"life is hard, we’re worthless, that nobody likes us, that we need $_____ to be happy, that _________ happened to me and therefore I can’t follow my passions.”I had a lot of stories that told me living the life of my dreams wasn’t possible. But now I am here doing it, living it and being it. It is 100% possible for all of us. Some journeys to total fulfillment will be more challenging than others, given your current circumstances (which are impermanent). However, if anyone is willing to do the work it takes to let go of those self-defeating stories, then they will experience all these benefits and more… and by "doing the work” I mean dropping the negative stories, releasingthe crappy habits or patterns in our lives thatarenot the best use of our time or money, and then making the moment to moment choice to do what what you enjoy OR start enjoying what you are currently doing. What sort of LFT’s (Look Forward To’s) are you going to start booking into your calendar regularly so you can begin living more of what you want? What are some things you’re committed to dropping right now? Please share with us and pass this article on if it inspired you!
Rhythms Create Results. If you find yourself struggling to get anywhere you want to be, chances are you are out of rhythm. Days have rhythms, seasons have rhythms and nature has rhythms. When we’re out of rhythm with our own nature, life can feel like a complicated struggle. When out of rhythm all choices, no matter how big or small can create a lot of stress in the body. The mind is unable to focus or make decisions and knowing what one wants is a sloppy mess. It is nearly impossible to be productive AND create with quality when out of rhythm. Everything has this flaily, stress-filled energy behind it(which can be felt, even in writing)and accessing our creative potential is not possible. What are the daily rhythms in your day-to-day life and how do they support or sabotage your goals and aspirations? If you were to start fresh now, how would you design your rhythms? What would be things you’d do regularly to move you forward with your health, as well as with your business aspirations? If you want to see yourself blast full steam ahead, give yourself rhythms that your body, mind and creativity can count on. It is like building a muscle, and if you show up enough times to that dedicated space you’ve created (in your schedule), you’ll find yourself easily getting into the zone. I recommend even adding a little ritual to the space you create. Our presence + intentions add power to everything we do. It is a great practice for opening up the work flow space. This is what I call,consciously getting in the zone! My favorite place to create from… Creating a healthy new rhythm in your life is like learning to meditate, which can be very hard without the proper knowledge, training or tools. Your first attempts may be hard as hell. A lot of resistance tends to come up and it feels almost pointless to even be trying. However, if you show up every single day it eventually becomes easy and that clear, connected space can be accessed in a matter of a moments – even while driving in LA traffic jams. If you need help meditating, click here. Figure out your commitment to yourself and find a way to support that commitment by integrating it into your daily life. You may need to ask for support in the beginning, and that is okay! A good example is, if you want to learn the guitar, it’s far better to pick it up and practice for 10-minutes per day rather than once a week for 60-minutes. Growing your business, improving your health or exercising are the same way. You need consistency to gain momentum. The tortoise beat the hare one step at a time. Slow and steady will win your race! So if reading this has made you realize you’re out of rhythm, be gentle on yourself and start here. Happy new now! Journalling Questions: 1. What is ONE new rhythm or habit that I'm 100% COMMITTED to incorporating into my daily routine starting in the next 24 hours? 2. What is ONE self sabotaging habit or rhythm that I'm 100% COMMITTED to letting go of, starting now? There is a time and a place for "being in the flow and waiting for the Universe to deliver." However, I have learned over the years that the thing that gets you the life and results you want is hard work, focus, dedication and daily practice. Your future self thanks you for creating consistent rhythms that support your success and goals. Written by: Bradley T Morris.

About 6 years ago I was starting to feel the effects of EMF's - negative electro-magnetic pollution from wifi, cell phones, cell towers, microwave frequencies in the environment etc. Living in a high rise apartment for 10 years now, I've been aware for awhile just how inundated I feel with wifi from every direction. I had been experiencing several bothersome symptoms like chronic headaches, dizziness, ringing in the ears, confusion, insomnia, and a bit of depression, and what I thought was sciatica. When I finally met a chiropractor who gave me a diagnosis, he felt the sciatica was mostly emotional and also suggested that I may be suffering from EMF sickness. Yikes, thats what I’d been feeling all along. He suggested I consider looking into to purchasing an iMRS (magnetic resonance stimulator) Mat. So Charles and I found a distributor in Vancouver and went to have a session on the iMRS - which is pulsed electro-magnetic frequencies. Magnetic resonance stimulation charges the membrane of every cell in the body with energy to improve health by supporting normal cellular functioning, causing the cells to communicate better. As soon as I laid down on the mat I could feel my body tingling and after an 8 minute session I felt very calm and renewed in a way I hadn't felt for a long time. I thought to myself, "What is this feeling I'm experiencing?” The first thing I noticed was the ringing in my ears was almost gone and the wired feeling that I had just learned to live with had calmed right down and I couldn't feel it anymore. Previously, before the mat I would lie down at night to sleep and my body would be vibrating, but now I get on my mat just before I go to bed and drift off to sleep in a very calmed, relaxed state. In the morning I wake up feeling rested and still calm to start my day. That was 6 years ago and I haven't gone a day without treating myself to a session on the mat. I have discovered that all of the symptoms of EMF sickness I was coping with have subsided greatly and I feel restored, energetically… a much happier girl indeed. Just recently we purchased the Omnium1, which is the same technology only it is portable and operates from an Android pad which means I can travel with the mat. I can use it while I'm driving long distances (greatly reduces the vibration of tires on the road) and I arrive at my destination still refreshed and ready to go. We take our Omnium1 everywhere we go now. All I do is charge the pad, pack it in the carrying case and I can take it to the beach or simply put it in my gravity chair while I'm watching a movie. The Omnium is such a convenient device to own that I wouldn't do without it. I would say the most important benefit that I have received from my PEMF mat is that it has assisted in reversing the beginning symptoms on periodontal disease. My gums were receding and bleeding, some of my teeth were loose because on bone loss and my teeth hurt. I knew iMRS probe would really help to regenerate nerve, bone and gum tissue and so I used it every day for 15 minutes and now when I see the dentist for quarterly cleanings I always receive a report that my teeth have healed and back within normal range. No more symptoms of periodontal disease. If you’re looking for solutions for your EMF sickness, body pain or even periodontal disease, the Omnium1 and iMRS Mats have been such blessings in my life. Find out more information about them here and feel free to ask me any questions you may have. Happy to help! Wind Walrath co-Founder of Conscious Planet
In this short article, we want to expand your understanding of how important enzymes are for helping you have a healthier, happier, more energized body (and life). This day and age, a great deal of what we put into our bodies has been cooked or processed to point of destroying all of the enzymes OR it has been sprayed with chemicals, genetically modified or shipped thousands of miles to arrive to your dinner table. All these scenarios make it extremely difficult for your body to: a) utilize the nutrients in the food you just ate. b) digest the food you just ate. (as in, poop it out) The average North American diet leaves many of us deficient in the natural enzymes our body creates, causing all sorts of problems likeheartburn, indigestion, uncomfortable gas, inflammation, bloating, constipationand if the problem goes on long enough, it can lead to cancers. Here are some important facts to help you better understand the Health-Making Miracle that Enzymes are: Enzymes play a crucial role in every function in the human body.Think about it, every movement you make and every organ function is dependent on the enzymes in your body. Enzymes are involved in eating, digestion, breathing, kidney and liver function, reproduction, elimination and much more. Enzymes help with nutrient absorption.They help break down foods in the digestive tract by breaking apart the bonds that hold nutrients together—nutrients the body uses for energy and other important functions. Without enzymes, your body can't absorb the nutrients your eating. Exercise and positive lifestyle produce enzymes.It's true. Havinghealthy diet, getting plenty of exercise and living a positive lifestyle will help promote healthy enzyme production in the body. Raw fruits and veggies are high in enzymes.Consuming plenty of raw foods will supply your digestive tract with beneficial enzymes. If you want to get the most from your food then buy fruits and vegetables that are as local and organic as possible (with good soil quality). Enzyme production decreases with age.As we age, our bodies produce less protease, lipase and amylase, which means digestion of protein, fats, and carbohydrates can be impaired as we get older. This is why so many men and women easily gain weight in their 40's, 50's and 60's when earlier in their life they could have eaten anything and not gained a pound. Taking a high quality enzyme supplement will help with this. Kids benefit from enzymes too!Taken with meals, enzymes are great way to support digestive health and help little tummies break down a broad range of foods. If you've never taken a high quality enzyme supplement, then you will be amazed at the difference they'll make to your energy levels, weight control, digestion and overall feelings of positivity. Think about it: If you're body is able to utilize the nutrients digest your food more easily, how much better would you feel? Wanna try some enzymes and find out for yourself?Conscious Planet has a 2-for-1 special on right now! (while supplies last)
We're all aware of the incredible number of health benefits that come from a regular practice of meditation, but how many of us actually take the time from our busy lives to sit, breathe and be present? As an entrepreneur, pro golfer and expecting father, my plate feels full. However, I do everything better when I make the choice to take a peace pause, just for me. I was asked by Charles and Wind to share a meditation practice with the community and I am so excited for you to experience this Deep Chakra Cleanse Meditation. This has been one of the most powerful practices I've ever learned. A bit of a back story about it: I learned it from my good friend Yves El Kalinado Vial. He is one of the most joyful, healthy 60ish year olds I've ever met. Yves says he's been doing this practice for about 15 years and has not caught even a single cold since starting. When you meet him, you'll believe what he says.This particular practice became most useful for my life when living in LA for a year. Everyday while sitting in typical Los Angeles traffic, I'd chant the sounds of each chakra at the top of my lungs. While everyone else was road raging, I was blissed out - sometimes to the point of laughter. There is something so powerful, healing and energizing when practicing this type of vocal expression meditation. Using our voice to tune our bodies like we would an instrument, just makes sense. Right? I hope you love the Deep Chakra Mediation practice as much as I do. If you do, then share the good vibes with your friends by sharing it and let me know what your experience is like. I'd love to hear (it's different for everyone).I also want to thank my dear friend, Blair Francis Armstrong for composing the music, specifically for this practice. If you're inspired to create a daily practice, I have two online courses. (Beginner) 21 Day Meditation Experience with Bradley Morris(click here) (Advanced) 40 Day Cowabunga Vision Quest with Bradley Morris(click here) May we all do whatever it takes to live this life to our full potential and presence... because that's where the magic is!Stay blessed, Bradley T Morris
Did you know that the condition of your teeth and oral cavity may be the most important indicator of the status of your overall health? In other words, if you really want to know whats going on in your body, look in your mouth. Your teeth and oral cavity provide an astonishing window into the state of your present health or declining health. In fact, according to Weston A. Price, D.D.S. who has devoted many years to research into the cause of dental degeneration and disease, states in his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, that, "dental decay does not merely accompany physical degeneration and disease but it quite clearly precedes it.” Dental decay is like the proverbial "canary in the coal mine.” The canary will succumb to the poisons in the air before the miners do. Thus the canary serves as a warning to the miners to get out before they succumb as well. Well there’s not many coal miners around these days but the message is clear: in a similar manner, the teeth will tend to succumb to poor dietary habits in advance of the rest of the body.Thus we have our own canary in the form of our teeth. Known for his pioneering research in the early decades of the twentieth century, Dr Weston Price understood the serious negative health consequences of root canals and dental caries in general. He and his wife traveled the globe investigating dental as well as the overall health of various isolated populations who were still eating a diet free of all modern processed foods, depending solely on their native diets. Weston Price ‘s findings were most revealing, showing a direct correlation between dental disease and deterioration preceding physical degeneration of overall health as a result of turning away from traditional diets to more processed, commercial food diets. Dr. Price found that degenerative illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and osteoporosis were quite rare or even entirely absent from those populations who were still eating native diets. Had I known of these study results back in 1997 when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer I would have understood why my teeth were already deteriorating with the beginning symptoms of periodontal disease: bleeding gums, receding gums, deep gum pockets, (tooth decay is the result of bacteria collecting in these deep pockets) resulting in bone deterioration that you cannot see and teeth become porous and loose. What I didn’t know is that the cancer was leaching calcium and other minerals from my teeth because of the acid condition of my body in general and specifically in the acid condition of my saliva. I quickly learned that healthy teeth exist in a sea of saline alkalinity which is our saliva. Keeping saliva alkaline is essential for healthy mineralized tooth enamel, gums and bone. When your teeth are lubricated in a nutrient dense solution of minerals, enzymes and vitamins they are at their absolute healthiest. And you can be assured that the rest of your body is alkaline and all is well. Our teeth are always telling us whats going on in our bodies. Every tooth is connected to the body through flex point energy meridians. For example: Wisdom teeth = heart, intestines Front teeth = kidney, bladder, reproductive Eye teeth = heart, liver Top molar = R pancreas, stomach Top molar = L stomach, spleen Bicuspids = lung, large intestine Bottom bicuspids = R,L liver gallbladder If there is a disturbance in the tooth, there will be a disturbance in the meridian, thus indicating there is something wrong in our body. Saving Your Teeth I am guessing that most of us have had the experience of a trip to the dentist, probably starting when we were very young to have cavities filled with amalgam. Little did we know back then that the amalgams were mercury based and dangerously toxic causing untold health challenges later on and its only been in the last 20 years or so that awareness has increased of the dangers of mercury fillings and root canals. In my case, old Dr. Hawkins who is long since dead filled my young innocent mouth with mercury amalgams and my dear mother didn’t know any better, thinking she was saving me from further cavities. Then back in 1989 when I started to wake up realizing I had to start taking more responsibility for my health, especially my teeth, I had most of my amalgams taken out and replaced withcomposites. But I got a bit sloppy about going for regular cleanings and checkups and of course it always depended on whether I had a dental plan at the time or not. Then in December of 2009 I went in for a routine cleaning and the dentist took one look inside my mouth and declared that I hadperiodontaldisease and sent me toa periodontist. I was alarmed when I saw the x-rays and how much bone loss had occurred since the last x-ray that I had taken in 2005. So within a 4 year period, calcium was slowly being leached from my teeth and what was causing that? Theres a good chance it was breast cancer, that I had been diagnosed with earlier on. I remember reading an article that tumours will leach minerals from the body, especially from the organs and bones. The periodontist wanted to extract my upper and lower molars, all four of them, because they were in an advanced decaying condition with the danger of infecting the teeth next to them. I declined extraction and determined that I could overcome periodontal disease just as I had overcome the condition of breast cancer, with the nutritional and therapetic applications to heal my gums, teeth and bone. I already knew that my teeth were not static, and separate from the rest of my body and that they could be renewed with healthy diet and lifestyle choices. And so the journey of self-dentistry began and I created a strict program using Conscious Planet products. Tips for Self Dentistry and Oral Health Ecology First thing I changed was my toothpaste. It is important to know that everything that is taken into the mouth including toothpaste and mouthwash is absorbed through the mouth cavity with a 90% absorption efficiency, especially true in the oral cavity where the skin wall is only one cell thick and if gums are bleeding, toxic toothpastes will have direct access to the bloodstream. Ingredient discernment was and is absolutely imperative. I chose a regenerating toothpaste that can be ordered online from Ascended Health, called Extra Strength Oralive. Oralive is a black paste that is rich with minerals and soil probiotics and elk antler for amazing cell regeneration. You put a little dab on your toothbrush and brush lightly, then swish in your mouth for 30 seconds and swallow. This not only alkalizes your saliva but the probiotic kills the bad bacteria in the gum pockets and thus takes away bad breath. As soon as I started using Extra Strength Oralive, I noticed the inflammation and bleeding stopped almost immediately. I used Oralive for 6 months for healing and restoration and now I use a neem ayurvedic herbal toothpaste called Auromere that can be purchased in most health food stores. I recommend this one for healthy maintenance because of the healing properties in the ingredients and have had continued success with care of my teeth. 2016 update: recently I have switched to a toothpastes at the recommendation of my friend, Josef Tyls, who carries Tate’s – the Natural Miracle Vitamin and Mineral Toothpaste which protects against cavities and supplies nutrition to the teeth and gums. You can contact Josef at 778-999-4307 For the rest of my oral care I use the following Conscious Planet products: 1. Defend – used as a mouth rinse to eliminate bacteria; acts as an anti-septic,anti-parasitic, eliminates gum infections and relieves toothaches. Add 4 drops of Defend to 2 oz of water and swish in mouth after brushing, then swallow. 2. Hemp oil and Defend for oil swishing in morning upon arising. Soothes bleeding gums, provides minerals and oxygen to the blood vessels, will reach the dentine nerves and roots of teeth. Take 2 tbsp of hemp oil and 20 drops of Defend and swish in your mouth for 12 – 15 minutes and then be sure to spit the oil out. Do not swallow this mixture. With Defend added, it is absorbed through the mouth cavity thereby cleaning the blood as it circulates throughout the whole body every 15 minutes; Defend will stimulate the circulation and lymph system to get moving; helps to regenerate gum tissue by keeping it clean of bacteria. 3. Genesis – to re-mineralize the enamel, dentine and bones. Also is important to keep the saliva alkaline. Take a couple of tbsp in mouth and hold for 3 minutes and swallow. 4. Colonize – probiotic – after brushing teeth before bedtime, open two capsules of Colonize into your mouth and swish around your teeth for a few minutes and then swallow. This also adds to the healthy saline alkalinity of saliva and keeps bateria away. 5. Phytomune – plant sterols. Has an antibacterial effect and reduces inflammation, healing bleeding gums. I increased my daily amount of Phytomune for the increase in my overall immune boosting efficiency. 6. Note: It is extremely important to brush and floss teeth every time you eat food while on a recovery program from periodontal disease, especially to allow for gum pockets/cavities to decrease in size so that gums adhere to the teeth again. Food particles cause bacteria rapidly and will harden as plaque very quickly between teeth if surface is not kept clean. This is where flossing and using tiny little cyclinder brushes between teeth is essential. I got so used to brushing my teeth and cleaning thoroughly with the little brushes every time I ate, that it has become automatic and part of my daily routine. In summary, I committed to visiting the oralhygienistevery 3 months and have received glowing reports of improvement and am told that my teeth have been restored back to a healthy normal condition and now my visits to the dentist can be scheduled for 6 month checkups.

In 2012, Conscious Planet's "miracle product,"Defend found its way back to Africa where it was originally formulated. Defend was created to act as a natural medicine for children coping with dysentry, which is aninfection of the intestines resulting in severe diarrhea with the presence of blood and mucus in the feces.It's a horrible illness that so many children suffer from. Conscious Planet member, Maude Porchet packed a bunch of bottles with her when she traveled to Africa for an adventure far off the beaten path. Maude’s love for humanity and her deep interest in tribal life has taken her around the planet a few times and this was her first journey to Africa. Maude says, Defend is an necessity in her little medicine kit that she takes on all of her global adventures, especially when visiting remote areas where the water supply is questionable. After researching different itineraries, she decided on a camping trip to explore the northern part of Kenya. This camping trip soon became a life changing event, after a serendipitous encounter with a small 12 year old boy who, out of nowhere, ran towards Maude and grabbed her hand. He lead her back to his village where her destiny unfolded before her eyes. Maude was gifted a whole new mission in life; to offer opportunities where none were present before, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights such as equality, education and nutrition. Maude’s first intention upon visiting this little remote village in Northern Kenya, one of the harshest, arid, climates in Africa, was to help decontaminate the local drinking water of bacteria. How? By adding Defend! It wasn’t long before she noticed the symptoms ofdiarrhoea, dysentry (even in severe cases), runny noses, stomach cramps and a number of other minor ailments, began to subside. The villagers were amazed with the immediate results they were experiencing. All from a little bottle of liquid drops added to their water... They quickly embraced Defend as a miracle medicine. With medical supplies limited and the closest hospital being 82km away where some would travel on foot to receive routine medical attention, the results the villagers were receiving from Defend turned out to be such a blessing. It wasn’t long before they ran out of Defend though. Leaving the small village with a promise to return, Maude flew back to Canada to get more Defend. She kept her promise and returned to Northern Africa 6-months later with plenty of Defend for everyone. Maude appealed to Conscious Planet to gift a supply of Defend for the people of the Turkana province, particularly the village of Parkati, where Maude has now established the the Turkana Empowerment Project. Maude is well versed in facilitating self growth and has great empathy. Since traveling to Kenya in 2012, Maude has embarked on a beautiful journey to bring dignity and worth to the people who have touched her hearts. The Turkana Empowerment Project is already changing the lives of many living in "the most sorrowful conditions" as Maude puts her simple yet universal mission into practice. She will be returning to Kenya for the 5th time in a few weeks, Feb 2016 with another supply of Defend and a heart full of love, courage, and compassion to follow her dreams to leave the world a more abundant place for all. If you would like to send Maude with a bottle of Defend, you can purchase your bottle here and just leave us a note when paying for it so we know to give it to her.
For a decade and a half our family has been dedicated to growing you the best possible hemp foods on the planet. There are basically 2 growing standards: Organic and non-organic. Even though organic appears to be better, sometimes the soil quality of organic foods is extrememly low, which means the food can be empty of nutrition. The non-organic route can be worst though because that means it might be GMO or sprayed with all kinds of chemicals. Our hemp company, HEMPCO Canada created a 3rd growing standard, which is proving to be better than organic! We call it SAFE, it stands for: Sustainable Agronomic Food Essentials. It is a symbol of our commitment to growing the finest food possible in harmony with the land. SAFE certified is: soil & plant advanced nutrient supplementation (meaning we put nutrition in the soil that the food grows in). chemical residue free of toxic herbicides, pesticides or fungicides (no poisonous chemicals). Neo Pure, hydroxyl generator and probiotic pathogen treatment (the air quality and cleanliness in our processing facility is incredible). SAFE Steps we take for the hemp food you eat: Certified SAFE Steps: Soil is tested for nutrient levels, defined and classified determining the most appropriate soil/crop inputs to enhance nutrient balancing and improve crop yields. The soil ecosystem is adjusted with natural fertilizer concentrates and chelating fulvic acids, humic acids, enzymes and probiotics to provide optimal mineral and soil "workers” naturally lowering: soil compaction, water requirements, plant competition and environmental stress factors and increase the plant’s immune system, food nutrient levels and overall crop yield. We select seeds with the best germination and root development for the climate zone and soil conditions, providing optimal relationships between the soil and seed genetics, thus creating, superior nutrient levels, consistent growth and increased yield. Food is harvested at its ideal ripeness at the most appropriate timeline including lunar and solar cycles. Seed and debris separation to 99.9% pure. Seed treatment with Neo Pure bacteria/pathogen neutralizer and food stabilizer to increase food safety. Seed storage with Hydroxyl Generator (similar to ozone) air circulation treatment to reduce peroxide levels, further protection from bad bacteria and maintain highest nutrient levels and prolong shelf life. As you can see, at Conscious Planet we are committed to your health through planetary health. We hope this inspires you to tell your friends about Conscious Planet and inspire them to hemp up their lives too!

Teas have been used since the beginning of time to help carry plant medicine into our bodies for a variety of reasons, one including Cleansing! And little do people realize, one of the most powerful cleansing herbs in the world is DANDELION! A plant that is known as a pesky weed to most, Dandelion is hailed as a medicinal wonder to herbalists and wise folks alike. All parts of this bitter beauty is useful, chock full of vitamins A, B, C, and D, as well as minerals, such as iron, potassium, and zinc. It has been used to help heal liver, kidney, stomach, and digestive issues for centuries by the Native Americans, the Chinese and even the Europeans. How did it go from such a useful medicinal plant to that of an annoying weed? I don't know but I am grateful the knowledge was never totally lost. Even Dr. Oz has jumped on board, recommending dandelion tea as part of his 48-hour cleanse to help your liver release toxins while you sleep. As we are beginning to relearn, Mother Nature is the ultimate pharmacy and scientific studies are continuously showing up to support these ancient claims. Studies have shown that dandelion does in fact contain diuretic and liver detoxifying properties and is even beginning to show promising research that it has cancer-reducing properties as well. Studies have also shown dandelion root tea helping repair alcohol induced liver damage in mice. Not bad for a common "weed". So you might be thinking "this is all fine and dandy (pun intended), but I'm not about to go dig up dandelion roots to make tea any time soon." And neither am I since dandelion season isn't for another 6-8 months depending on where you live. So I recommend looking around for a great cleansing tea, like our product Cleanse Tea, which contains a quality source of dandelion, while also including six other specific cleansing herbs to support the dandelion's healing process: Burdock root - another powerful liver supporting herb by cleaning and building the blood. Liquorice root - a long list of properly documented uses including the treatment of influenza, coughs, viral infections, fungal infections, sore throat, tendinitis, arthritis, tuberculosis, ulcers, and yeast infections. Also TASTES GREAT!! Pau D'arco root - a cooling, biter, alterative, antibiotic, antifungal, antitumor, antiviral, antineoplastic, digestive, diuretic, fungicidal, antidiabetic, anodyne, analgesic, astringent, parasiticide and hypotensive. Need we say more? Cinnamon - not only deliciously flavourful, It has been prized for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. It is loaded with antioxidants (more than garlic and oregano!) and anti-inflammatory properties with a warming quality that helps deepen the effects of the other herbs. Yellow Dock root - supporting detoxification from a few angles, Yellow Dock root stimulates bile production to help with digestion, bowel functions to help remove old stuck faecal matter in the intestinal tract, as well as increase the frequency of urination to assist in toxic waste elimination Echinacea root - known as a powerful immune increasing herb, echinacea root is a perfect ally to add to a cleansing tea to keep the immune system strong and the body healthy as we release old, toxic waste from the body. Each of the ingredients in this unique combination have outstanding inherent abilities, however, together they make the simplest and finest all-round cleansing and detox tea that everyone could do 1-2 times per year. Making a conscious effort to keep the body's elimination channels flowing properly is imperative if we wish to continue experiencing good health. Sure, there are other, and possibly more effective ways of cleansing the body like enemas, colon hydrotherapy, or our Gall Bladder & Liver Flush Program, but taking a tea with a quality source of Dandelion root is easy, cost effective and not to mention enjoyable, making it a great place to start for the aspiring cleanser. HAPPY CLEANSING!
Did you know that the intestinal tract amounts for 80% of our immune system and is responsible for taking in food, turning it into primary energy-supplying and cell building nutritional elements, recycling fluids and discharging waste. This amazing factory contains trillions of bacteria, some friendly, some not, and in order to have optimum health they need to exist in a symbiotic and balanced relationship. However, stress, diet deficiencies, drugs, toxins, acidosis and other adverse environmental factors weaken the friendly bacteria that keep the pathogens in check. This means our poor intestinal tract isn't necessarily sitting in a place of harmony anymore, and our bodies will eventually begin to show signs and symptoms that reflect that. So why not hire an entire army of 'warrior like' transient strains of powerful probiotic bacteria, who are just dying to get inside those bowels of yours and clean house! But don't worry, these "good-guys" are still gentle and will inhabit and support the entire intestinal system, protect the bowel wall, synthesize nutrients, and remove waste, all on your behalf… well that's what we like to think, but really it's the other way around! These friendly strains of bacteria including the all-mighty L. acidophilus and bifidobacterium bifidum have been around helping us out since the beginning of time (well the dawning of human existence since they've been around much, much longer than we have) and have formed a mutualistic relationshipwith us, as in they receive a place to live and food to feed on in exchange for keeping harmful bacterium and microbes out. A good deal in my opinion. And not only do they keep these other unwanted strains of bacteria from taking up residence in our bodies, but they also aid in digesting micro nutrients, synthesize key nutrients, reduce bad cholesterol, form a protective barrier, and their by-products of oxygen, B-Vitamins and amino acids that stimulate our immune system and scavenge free radicals inhibits pathogenic growth and keeps our bodies healthy and squeaky clean on the inside. They have also been shown to prevent and treat a wide variety of diseases and conditions such as yeast infections, urinary infections, IBS, diarrhea, lactose intolerance, as well as skin disorders such as eczema and acne. The tenants every landlord dreams Did you know the number of bacteria in your body outnumber your cells by about 10 to 1? This doesn't mean we're any less human than we thought we were before reading this, but it does mean we must start paying attention to these little guys and keeping the important ideal balance of 85% good bacteria to 15% bad bacteria in check. But how you might ask? Well, there are many ways to begin repopulating your intestinal tract with these wonderful warriors. The traditional route in which man-kind historically received their probiotics is by consuming large amounts of fermented and cultured foods including yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, milk or water kefir, sourdough bread… just about everything was turned into a fermented food because we're talking about a time without refrigeration! But, unfortunately the art of fermenting our foods has largely been lost in the sands of time, mainly due to our fast-paced lifestyles. Although this is definitely changing as families begin to learn the incredible value of fermented and cultured foods and how much fun it is to make (kids love it!), many of us are still in need of a healthy daily dose of these probiotic warriors to keep us living at optimal levels. This is why one of our most important and best selling products is our Probiotic Flora Blend "Colonyze" which contains a full balance of powerful probiotic bacteria including bifidobacterium infantis, bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus brevis, lactobacillus casei, lactobacillus lactis, DDS-1 strain of L. acidophilus, bifidobacterium bifidum, lactobacillus plantarum, lactobacillus bulgaricus, streptococcus thermophilus, and lactobacillus salivarius. It also includes Spirulina (a blue-green algae superfood revered for it's long list of health benefits), yucca root (a tuberous root loaded with healthy phytonutrients including steroidal saponins and resveratrol), hemp protein powder, and MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides known to have tremendous health benefits). If we're cleaning out our bodies of unwanted pathogens, microbes, and bacteria we must be filling it back up with the good-guys or else we will find ourselves back in the same place as before the cleanse… out of bacterial balance, and we wouldn't want to do all this hard work for nothing!
