Organic Foods
Go Natural!

According to the 2002 Organic Consumer Trends Report, more than 40 million households or approximately 39% of the United States population regularly choose organic products.

With the recent USDA regulations on organic labeling in effect consumers will now more than ever have access to organic foods and products.
Fresh organic produce is difficult to find in supermarkets, so many spas are growing their own. Spas are breaking away from traditional “spa cuisine” and offering much different menu selections. They are creative and educate their guests about organic gardening, and offer tips to those who want to grow their own garden’s at home!

Celery reduces hypertension?
Stress may be the culprit behind half of the diagnosed hypertension cases in the United States.
While many people seek out ways to relieve stress with lifestyle changes and prescription medication to lower blood pressure, they may have overlooked one simple solution manufactured by nature ---celery!

The chemical that gives the crisp green stalk its distinctive scent, 3-n-butylphthalide, also reduces blood concentrations of stress hormones, which cause blood vessels to constrict.

Eating four organic stalks of celery a day, the recommended intake for people with mild hypertension, also delivers a healthy dose of potassium, vitamin C, and calcium.

Miracle Potions made from the Ocean!
From the Sea
Seaweed baths, wraps, masks, and scrubs: today virtually every spa menu touts alleged miracle elixirs from the sea. Cosmetic companies from the eco-friendly Body Shop to sophisticated Lancôme hail seaweed as a natural beauty booster that can moisturize, nourish, exfoliate, and tone: estheticians claim it can eliminate cellulite: and some medical experts say it can help lower cholesterol and balance the bodies’ hormones. But do all these claims really hold water?


There is a lot to like about seaweed. Although it feels slimy, it is actually packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients like vitamin A (which assists in cell production), vitamin E (which promotes softness), and essential fatty acids (which have anti-inflammatory properties).To really work its magic, seaweed needs to be as pure as possible. When it comes to claims with the ability to cure cellulite, if that was really the case, it would be know worldwide!


Another way to reap the benefits of seaweed is from the inside out. Seaweed can provide important nutrients like potassium and iodine, which help prevent thyroid disease, relieve constipation, and lower blood pressure. Some experts believe that Japan’s low incidence of breast cancer is linked to the fact that the country has the highest per capita dietary iodine consumption in the world.
When it comes to an abundant supply of minerals, there’s no healthier source than seaweed.
