Website: Dr. Janet Starr Hull

I'm spending way too much time reading health & nutrition blogs & websites lately.  One I've come across in the past and came back to today is Dr. Janet Starr Hull.

Her ideas and suggestions just make sense to me.  Here is a list of suggestions from a recent post she made.

Here are some suggestions on how to support your immune system:
  • Avoid ALL GM, GE and GMO foods;
  • Reduce your intake of refined sugar and fat;
  • Avoid margarine and hydrogenated oils;
  • Increase your intake of omega-3 essential fatty acids found in flax oil, salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines and trout;
  • Take a perle of evening primrose oil daily for omega-6 oil, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA);
  • Avoid white bread and refined flour;
  • Avoid all diet sweeteners;
  • Add fiber to your diet through fruits, raw veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole grains;
  • Avoid pastries, doughnuts, French fries, chicken nuggets, candy, and sugar-free gum/condiments;
  • Eat several small meals a day as opposed to three large meals;
  • Reduce your intake of all colas and carbonated drinks;
  • Supplement daily with a quality multi-vitamin and trace mineral from the health market;
  • Supplement with extra vitamin C from ascorbic acid daily;
  • Add other antioxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamin E and selenium at least three to four times a week;
  • Get plenty of rest and regular, mild exercise.

Nothing too wacky or too far out there... just things we should all be doing.
