The low-down on STEVIA
Would like to share a fabulous resource I’ve tied into recently; Dr Josh Axe. He is a really young, intelligent ‘alternative’ natural healing doctor. As you know, that’s my kind of doc. He seems hell-bent to re-educate all of us on the easiest and best way to handle many things. Seems to be a really smart cookie. . . got my attention! Sure he does the big issues of heavy (disease) problems, but that isn’t to say that he doesn’t also understand the stuff we deal with on a day to day basis of living. . . like how to sweeten my tea? (I generally use honey) Been using Stevia of late, but reading the label the other day — took my breath away and got depressed. See, I love my body and wish to do it NO HARM! I take care of my body. . . and it takes care of me. How could this happen? Thought Stevia was safe!
Well, it is — to be sure! But we must stay alert. The best stuff doesn’t even have FDA approval, while these refined, altered (and some carcinogenic/toxic stuff) DOES have the OK. What is our world coming to? At least, now, I am able to make a sensible choice in keeping with my values. To each his own, they say. Jan
