How is it Soluble?

All things are either lipophilic / aquaphobic or lipophobic / aquaphilic - If the chemical likes oil, cooking in oil is necessary before we can absorb it. Many foods have a combination of lipophilic and lipophobic nutrients.

Lipo = Lipids / Fats

Aqueous = Water

Philic = Loving

Phobic = Fear


Absorption isn’t straight forward

Tumeric’s absorption is increased 100%+ from presence of black pepper, CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) absorption is increased by drinking grapefruit juice along with it (watch out for certain drugs which are also impacted by grapefruit juice), absorption is increased through certain ways of cooking for some nutrients and broken down by others.


Complete Proteins

Beans need their friend rice to make a complete protein. Hemp, quinoa, nut butter


I do not want to ingest or put these on my body. They screw with your body - Duh. Read the back of everything.

Preservatives, dyes, pesticides, etc


Plastic water bottles have micro plastic from the manufacturing processes. All of them. I prefer glass or steel water bottles with Berkey filtered water (or other approved water source). Filters have very different abilities to filter different toxins and are actually worse if not replaced.

Do not microwave under any condition! Do not leave in the sun, or in your hot car (leaching will occur). There are some cans and plastic containers that say BPA free.

Plastics & Styrofoam


Many chemicals which enter our bodies can be traced through testing. Your “body burden” is the amount of chemical build up in your body at a particular point in time. Lipophilic chemicals tend to stay in our bodies longer because they are stored in fat cells. Stop using all things chemical - body products, shower products, cleaning products, non-organic foods, perfumes, laundry detergent, hand soaps
