Flaxseed Oil Dressing
Never heat flaxseed oil. Heat makes it taste rancid and destroys the Omega 3’s which is why its used in the first place. Buy cold pressed flaxseed oil in health food store in the refrigerated section and keep in fridge. Flaxseed oil has a short life span so use it up right away.
Flax Oil Dressing: Mix ½ cup flax oil, 3 Tbsp lemon juice, 3 Tbsp water, 2-3 garlic cloves, ½ tsp sugar (or other sweetener), 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1 tsp light miso (optional), 5 ml Bragg’s Aminos or tamari sauce and 2 Tbsp fresh herbs (or 1 tsp dried). Place everything in a blender. Puree until smooth. Cover and refrigerate up to one week.
Electrolyte boosters remove toxic body acids and increase energy. This has something to do with neutralizing the body’s pH level from being overly alkaline/acid. A digital pH meter available at hydroponic stores or pH testing strips found at drug stores and health food stores can measure pH levels. Readings above 7.5 means it time to consume acid forming foods or beverages until pH levels stabilize between 7 and 7.5.
Alkaline forming foods should be eaten on a regular basis:
- All Melons
- Milk Products
- Dates & Raisins
- Natural Yogurt
- Unpasterurized Honey
- Maple Syrup
- Root Vegetables (potatoes, rutabaga, etc)
- Alfalfa and Other Sprouts
- Sprouted grain breads
- ALMONDS (untreated) 15 to 20 per day. Soak the almonds for 24 hours prior to consumption. Each morning prepare almonds by placing them in a small bowl with good quality water. The next morning they are ready to eat. When the bowl is empty add more almonds and water and allow them to soak until the next morning.
- Lithothamnium is a sea algae and can be added to many dishes to raise pH. Using ¼ to ½ teaspoon Lithothamnium per cup of flour for all of your baking needs. It can be added to spaghetti sauce and soups. As a general guideline use about ¼ teaspoon per serving. It can also be taken in water or juice, ¼ teaspoon per glass, to raise pH and mineralize the body.

Not near the ocean? No problem. Proceed to the local organic market or health food store where you can find dried seaweed. Buy half kelp and half dulse for the greatest potency. Stuff two ounces of each kind into an old stocking to keep the seaweed from clogging up your drain. Boil water in a large pot, add the seaweed, and steep for half an hour or so. Fill the bathtub with water as hot as you can stand it and pour the whole mixture (seaweed in its bag and all). Add aromatherapy bath oil. Jump in!
A slight gel or film from the seaweed will softly coat your body while you soak. Once it dissolves and you don’t feel it on your skin any more, you know your bath is done and you’ve absorbed the seaweed’s benefits.
Aromatherapy bath oil – mix 2 ounces of carrier oil with 15-20 drops of your own blend of essential oils. Blend the oils together and store in an amber or cobalt glass bottle. Add about 1/4 ounce of the mixture to your bath water. It’s best to add the bath oil just before getting in the tub instead of while the water is running so that the oils don’t evaporate before you get into the tub. Using this blend is safer than adding pure essential oil directly to the bath water. Essential oils alone can settle in one spot on your skin and cause irritation.
