Kick-start the new year by not eating gluten. We are all more or less intolerant and most of us feel much better avoiding it. You will feel it in your stomach and see it on your skin.
The most forgiving and easy bread to make:
Calculate 15 minutes for mixing ingredients for the dough. The only thing you have to have in mind is to add approximately 2 tsp of bicarbonate, 2 tsp of salt and a sweet fruit for every 5 dl of flour. Nothing has to be exact measures. The sugar in the fruit and the salt make the bicarbonate act as a raising agent. The more heavy and compact the flour you use the more salt, bicarbonate and sugar (fruit) you need for the bread to raise. If you are on a candida diet use carrots.
Mix the following well in a bowl:
5 dl flour without gluten; quinoa, amaranth, teff, chick-peas, mijo, soy, corn, rice, or any other flour you find or make yourself if you have a grinder. Make some or all of the flour whole grain (with the husk). Make sure to always mix several flours to get all the amino-acids and therefore more protein.
1-2 dl quinio, mijo, oats or other flakes to make it soft
1/2 dl raisins
2 dl nuts for more protein
2 tsp bicarbonate soda
You can spice it up with a bit of cardamom, cinnamon and orange for a sweeter bread; or thyme, sun dried tomatoes and cayenne for a savoury bread to accompany a summer salad.
Mix well in a mixer or a separate bowl:
5-7 dl of water (more water if you use a dry flour)
1 dl Linseeds (flax seeds)
2 tsp salt
1-2 fruits (grated if you don’t have a mixer) like sweet apple, pear, orange or other fruit, or the pulp from a juicer. Carrot is also sweet enough. If you use a brown banana you just need one. If you use other fruit you may need 1 ½-2 depending on the sweetness.
Add more water until it’s sticky but not runny. Put the mass in bread trays, put pumpkin and sesame seeds on top and push them down a little so that they stick to the surface.
Bake for 40-60 minutes on 150-170 degrees C. Prick the center of the bread with a stick to see if it’s ready. When the stick is not wet and comes out clean, the bread is ready. If you took it out too early just put it in again. Breads always want to rest before cutting so let it cool for about 20 minutes under a tea towel before eating.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
