In 2009 Susanne Weil’s husband attended a single beekeeping seminar, came home and declared they were getting bees. Weil, of Onalaska, said she was a little surprised by the declaration but was quickly sold on the idea.

“We have a garden, and my husband wanted bees to pollinate our garden and orchard,” Weil said. “We saw an immediate difference. We never had such an amazing garden. Even our wind-pollinated plants did better. It’s a win-win.” Continue reading

Two people stand at a stove, some chopped onions, or maybe a pitcher of pancake batter, at each of their sides. One puts a pat of butter into his pan, letting it melt. The other glugs a bottle of vegetable oil into his. Other than that, they both cook identical meals. Who’s healthier?

Modern conventional wisdom would say the man who opts for vegetable oil is healthier than the pan-butterer. The American Heart Association suggests using oils like olive, sunflower, corn, or canola for healthier cooking. Continue reading

How to cut YOUR chances of getting cancer

~ NOTES ~
bennett_0608In my seventeen-odd years of working with the Kelley program, what you are about to read comes as no surprise to me. Much – if not all of what follows was discovered and published by Dr. William Donald Kelley in his writings and teachings (still available in updated forms) back in the late 1960’s.

The amazing bee has provided us with a beneficial natural food supplement. Long ago the Greeks and Romans called natural bee pollen “the life-giving dust” or the secret “ambrosia” eaten to acquire eternal youth. Pollen was entombed with pharaohs, it was used by the American Indians, and for centuries by tribes in China. In our modern times, scientists, gerontologists and nutritionists have rediscovered these bee-prepared foods and confirmed that they are able to promote benefits in the form of healing and rejuvenation. Some nutritionists state that you could live adequately on bee pollen alone. Science shows that bee pollen, that wondrous yet mysterious nectar, has natural rejuvenating powers, aids beauty, boosts energy, extends life span, fights allergies (and possibly even cancer) and relieves digestive disorders. Bee pollen bursts with easily-assimilated protein and lecithin, which nourish the brain and nervous system. Continue reading
