Keep reading. Don’t miss out.
Our names are Pat and Amanda and we hope this note finds you well. The two of us met about eight years ago when searching for natural health solutions for ourselves and our children, and we have met many of you in a similar pursuit. We recognize that maintaining good health is a daily decision.
Every day offers an opportunity to do something a little better for ourselves. Our red blood cells are a good example — our body makes them every day. In three months’ time, we have an entirely new set of red blood cells. If we eat nourishing food in those three months and nurture ourselves, we can be feeling powerfully better in just 90 days. Of course, if we make unhealthy decisions, those 90 days could result in health decline.
Food Has Power – the power to harm and the power to heal.
Food can nourish all of the cells in our bodies and nurture wellness. Foods with chemically-made additives and preservatives, genetically modified foods from a science lab, and foods with pesticide residue chip away at our health and the health of our children with every single meal.
We offer a startling example that may be new to you: synthetic folic acid fortification of food products versus naturally-occurring food folate.
Most people don’t realize the difference between folic acid and folate, since they believe they are both “the same vitamin.” People used to get folate in their diets by eating actual vegetables. With a reliance on fast food, people have become increasingly deficient in food folate. To fight the resulting anemia, governments have fortified food with synthetic folic acid since 1998. While common sense might suggest people simply eat vegetables, our government instead has sprinkled synthetic folic acid into bread dough so that the corporate white-bread-in-a-bag will appear healthy.
Research now shows that synthetic folic acid in our food can actually cause harm. One of the 80-minute videos in this package drives that point home — 50% of us have an extremely impaired ability to convert synthetic folic acid to folate and to get folate into our cells where our body needs it. Inadequate food folate impairs our liver’s ability to remove toxins from our blood and body. We desperately need folate — the food form of this critical B vitamin, from leafy greens and other folate-rich foods.
What if you don’t get enough folate? Illness and disease follows. As an example, Amanda’s book below on depression describes research on the link between nutrient deficiencies and depression — poor food choices could be literally making you crazy.
A folate deficiency may show up in one person’s brain and in another person’s lungs. Inadequate folate could result in infertility, depression, asthma, autism, heart disease or cancer. One of our own children was born with a birth defect associated with inadequate nutrients and toxin exposure. The list of nutrient deficiency-related diseases is long — they affect us and they affect our children.
Folate and the vast array of nutrients in real food are critical in recovery as a result. Pat’s course below on adrenal fatigue tells that story well.
Folate is just one example and is our chosen example today. The folic acid food fortification program stands in stark contrast to what we and all of the many contributors in this package today recommend — a healthy, nutrient-rich diet of unprocessed foods. At the risk of being folate-obsessed, our core message is that real food is central to good health and is critical for our growing children.
To that end, we have asked our favorite real food-oriented doctors and health bloggers to join together and create a package of products to help you in your own health journey. Each of these contributors writes from a place of researched experience, professional or personal.
We have also focused on health and wellness tools that are inexpensive or even free. In this economy, we need to protect our health more than ever and there is no reason to stretch our budgets for it even further. You will gain extreme tools to implement today that will not bust your budget, to buy them not to implement them.
With such a giant collection of digital health books and multi-media all for one packaged low price, we do not expect you to be interested in each book, video, or audio product. Our hope is that you will find one life-changing piece of health information to help you today, and that the rest of this extensive health library will be ready for you when you are inspired to learn from it.
You may never again have a chance to build an entire natural health library for under forty dollars. Take advantage of this limited time opportunity.

Rose argues that her grandmother showed signs of nutrient deficiencies in her twenties, did not correct them, and suffered a life of depression, diabetes, and heart disease, all of which share a common nutrient deficiency: Omega 3 fatty acids.

Understanding The Right-Brained Child by Cindy Gaddis.
According to the CDC, “Among children with current ADHD, 66.3% were taking medication for the disorder. In total, 4.8% of all children aged 4-17 years (2.7 million) were taking medication for ADHD.” Many right-brained children struggle in school and are diagnosed with ADHD — and medicated. Behind practically every learning disability label (ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, learning disabled, dysgraphia, twice exceptional, dyscalculia, etc.) is a right-brained learner. In this MP3 audio download workshop, Understanding The Right-Brained Child, Cindy Gaddis educates families, teachers, and physicians about the right-brain dominance learner as an information processing gift, rather than a deficit. This realization could help to prevent thousands (millions?!) of children from being medicated for their “learning disabilities”. Many parents (thousands perhaps) have found significant relief for their child and themselves, as they applied Cindy’s research. (70 minutes; MP3 format; $8)

MTHFR Introduction Video by Ben Lynch, N.D. and MTHFR Support FAQ Resource.
1 in 2 people cannot utilize folic acid effectively because of a deficiency called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), yet the U.S. government adds folic acid to bread and other processed grain-based foods. Now that synthetic folic acid has found its way into so many foods, researchers are realizing that the food fortification program has had more perverse consequences than they ever imagined.
Many people learn they have an MTHFR gene polymorphism as a result of a serious health problem: frequent miscarriages, blood clots, pulmonary embolisms, or cancer. When people have learned of the underlying cause of their health problems and actually address them, their recovery may even be far better than their regular doctors would have imagined possible.
Through MTHFR Support and this 80-minute video by Ben Lynch, N.D., you may well discover a key factor in your health. You will learn why this topic is critical, begin to understand how to remediate it, and find out where to purchase an in-home test kit. MTHFR resources include:
- Introduction to MTHFR, Ben Lynch N.D., (80 minutes; PDF with video access; $50)
- MTHFR Blueprint (24 pages; PDF format; $14.99)
- Livewello, a downloadable app to organize your health information.
- A MTHFR Manifesto by the Probiotic Police and Natural Peacekeepers — An educational parody to demonstrate the necessity of whole food nutrients in the detoxification battle.
For our part, our favorite way to remediate MTHFR is pictured just above and is quite green.
