🥞we know maple syrup is delicious, festive, goes together with pancakes and is uniquely canadian. but did you know that maple syrup actually has nutritional & medicinal qualities? maple syrup not only scores lower than table sugar on the glycemic index, ie: less impactful on our blood sugar, it is also rich in antioxidants such as lignans and coumarin (anti inflammatory phenols) & minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and manganese.🎄
maple syrup contains a 10% concentration of the disaccharide sucrose. when found in this high osmotic level, sucrose has been shown to be cytotoxic (killer) to cancer cells found specifically in those affected by colorectal cancers. overall, when maple syrup was added into an environment containing cancer-infected cells, the growth rate slowed and the antiproliferative effects increased as the colour of maple syrup deepened (lower grades- ie: grade b would be more effective than grade a medium amber).🎄
the same studies also examined maple syrup’s ability to prevent the expression or activation of enzymes responsible for the cell invasion of the extracellular matrix, including the basement membrane- this is important because when cancer cells can p*******e the basement membrane of a cell, it can contribute to the rapid spread into other areas of the body.🎄
like most things, it’s best to use maple syrup with moderation, but it is certainly a great alternative to sugar when baking. see below for our “myosyn-ized” version of the shortbread cookie!🎄
•1 cup coconut oil, softened but not melted
•½ cup grade a dark amber or grade b maple syrup
•2 cups oat or almond flour
•¼ tsp salt
1. preheat oven to 350*f.
2. beat the coconut oil & maple syrup together with an electric mixer until smooth. mix together flour and salt in a separate bowl before adding into oil & syrup mixture, just until combined. form the dough into walnut-sized balls then press onto cookie sheet.
3. bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.🎄

| pandas, jaundice, & baby liver | watching your children suffer from various illnesses and symptoms is heartbreaking. what’s even more difficult is not getting the answers you need to help your child heal. there are many health conditions that infants and small children suffer with that remain a mystery to medical science and research, including acid reflux and conditions like jaundice and pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders (pandas). for moms and dads, this is an incredibly frustrating and disheartening process.
in many cases, young children’s and babies’ health symptoms and conditions are blamed on genetics or labelled autoimmune diseases. as i explain in liver rescue: answers to eczema, psoriasis, diabetes, strep, acne, gout, bloating, gallstones, adrenal stress, fatigue, fatty liver, weight issues, sibo & autoimmune disease, neither of these are true and both prevent true healing for children.
it’s critical if you’re a parent, grandparent, or intend to become a parent in the future that you understand what is really behind common illnesses babies and children suffer with. because without the truth, the unknown underlying causes for their symptoms will create more health problems for your children later in life. the information i share in liver rescue is there for you so you know what’s really going on in your child’s body and how you can help them heal.
one common misconception is that babies are born with a clean slate when it comes to their body and health. that they are born with organs like the liver fully functioning and in good working order.
unfortunately, this isn’t the case at this point on our earth. no one is born with a liver that’s operating at 100% because toxins and pathogens are passed down from generations long before us, and these toxins affect infants in utero. this is one of the reasons a baby can experience symptoms upon birth, soon after birth or in the first few years of their life.

Supplement sunday health tip ⬇️. .
▶️ with so much talk and fear around 😷flu and viruses, it’s good to be prepared. one of my favorite remedies is 🌿 elderberry, also commonly known as sambucus. this herb is known for its immunostimulating and anti-inflammatory properties. it’s a great natural remedy for cold 🤧 and flu 🤒 symptoms and as a preventative measure for adults and kids. it’s sold in most stores by different brands, most common probably being sambucus by @natureswaybrands and various formulations or if you have some time, you can make your own elderberry syrup at home 🌱 .
12 gallons of ginger-apple kombucha brewed, jarred, and chilled for the holiday season. 🍎 🍏 can’t believe we used to spend so much money on kombucha now that we know how easy and inexpensive it is to make at home! any other “home-bootchers” out there? what are your favorite flavors? 🍹
