ATLAS AWARENESS DAY
with Christine Bemish, RN
Saturday, October 22, 2011
is here! Under bright, blue skies, trees are
shedding their leaves to be tossed around in the
autumn wind. Mainers are celebrating the season
with happy harvests of colorful squash, peppers,
and root vegetables. Those of us at The Living Way
are savoring the remnants of our garden by picking
baskets full of sweet, fragrant Concord grapes! An
extraordinary yield makes picking an exhilirating
experience. Fresh-off-the-vine Concords are making
their way into rich juice, fruit leathers, and, of
our mouths! Wow! Naturally healthy tastes so good!
Health happenings from this ministry include a review
of recent ventures. By way of report, my 'Apple-Grape
Smoothie' demonstration at the Central Maine Garden
Club last month was well-received. Members were
attentive and inquisitive as I shared the knowledge
(and taste!) of living foods. Many expressed interest
in incorporating healthier foods into their diets.

and I won awards for our raw food entries in the
Exhibition Hall where displays of local garden
graced long tables. What an inspiration! Topping off
the Fair was Dr. Brian Clement's dynamic lecture on
'Conquering Disease with Plant-Based Foods.'
Attendance was good and response enthusiastic. It
was a special treat to renew contact with Dr.

to this month, our HANDS-ON HEALTH
meeting will feature 'Kitchen Remedies' by Dr.
Gwen Scott from her 'Natural Medicines' series.
This segment will focus on herbal teas,
and healthy tonics. Included in this video are
how-to's as well as inspiring testimonies. Join us to
gain important knowledge that may come in handy
some day! More information about our HANDS-ON
HEALTH meeting is posted here.
Later this month is our Atlas
with Christine Bemish, RN and ProFilax Specialist.
Consider taking advantage of this event. This natural
massage therapy that corrects the misaligned atlas
vertebra could make a significant improvement in
your health. Most people have a misaligned atlas
from the birthing process. However, a misaligned
atlas can also be the result of an injury incurred in
an accident or fall. Correcting a dislocated atlas
can eliminate many health conditions. For more
information about this non-invasive therapy, see our
posting here. Contact us to
schedule an appointment.

Dehydrating Foods,' addresses another way to

Article: ''Perserving the Harvest:
Food is an integral,
essential part of life that is
expressed in various ways by different cultures and
peoples. Though food preferences differ with
and individuals, everyone agrees that when it comes
to hunger, there's nothing like food! Hence, the
preparation and preservation of food is central to
lives. Extending the life of food through dehydration
is one of the oldest methods of preserving food that
enhances daily life, while promoting longevity and

Recipe: Apple-Grape Smoothie
Apples and grapes are part of the blessings of
autumn. Celebrate the season with this tasty,
nutritious smoothie! Adjust the ingredients to suit
your tastebuds, but be sure to make the smoothie
on the 'green' side!
1/2 cup concord grapes or 1/4 cup grape juice
Few stems fresh mint
Few stems parsley
1 Tbsp. hemp oil or hemp protein powder
1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups purified water
Blend apples and
grapes in small amount of water.
Add remaining ingredients and blend again until
creamy smooth. Juicing the Concords beforehand
is recommended, since blending does not always
adequately pulverize seeds.
Note: Grapes are high
in minerals, antioxidants,
and resveratol, making them natural 'super-foods.'
Organic ingredients always recommended.
