*Movie Recommendation- What The Health


If you only watch only one movie about health this year, make it this one! It’s called…                 “What The Health”


From the movie’s website: What the Health is the groundbreaking follow-up film from the creators of the award winning documentary Cowspiracy. The film follows intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the secret to preventing and even reversing chronic diseases – and investigates why the nation’s leading health organizations don’t want us to know about it. With heart disease and cancer the leading causes of death in America, and diabetes at an all-time high, the film reveals possibly the largest health cover-up of our time. With the help of medical doctors, researchers, and consumer advocates, What the Health exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick.

What The Health is a surprising, and at times hilarious, investigative documentary that will be an eye-opener for everyone concerned about our nation’s health and how big business influences it.

Watch the trailer below…

*Making A Difference

Sometimes, the best way to make a difference is to be different!



*Creamy Cucumber Noodles Recipe

Here’s another scrumptious plant-based option to help raise your level of vitality! Packed with nutrition, this scrumptious meal is sure to deliver!


  • 3 cucumbers (1.5 lb / 680 g)
  • 1 bunch celery (1 lb / 460 g)
  • 1 red pepper (.25 lb / 115 g)
  • sunflower seeds (1⁄4 cup / 60 g)
  • sun dried tomatoes (1⁄4 cup / 60 g)

Directions: Make noodles with 1⁄2 the cucumbers by peeling the outside portions with a julienne peeler or mandolin. Place the noodles in a bowl and remaining peeled 1⁄2 cucumber in a blender. Finely chop 1/3 the celery and all of the red pepper, place all in a bowl. Blend the peeled cucumber, remaining celery, sun dried tomatoes and sunflower seeds till thick and creamy. Pour over top of the chopped ingredients and enjoy!

*Option to blend only 1⁄2 of the seeds adding the rest to the diced ingredients 🙂

*Q & A with Dr. SAM

Dr SAM- bio pic- Wellness Newsletter Question: A Wellness Newsletter Reader asks: What is your opinion on juicing vs. smoothies?

Answer: I think both have many benefits! I personally consume both. An important thing to consider is not always ‘which is better’, but rather, which one will you commit to doing consistently and on a long-term basis! Good health is a long-term, life-time commitment! Therefore, long-term positive results will result from long-term consistent positive health habits. Experiment! Have fun with it! Figure out what works best for you! Then… do it! And… keep doing it!

Thanks for your question.
