The Benefits of Sauerkraut – Old time foods made easy
What is Sauerkraut?
Sauerkraut is finely cut raw cabbage that has been fermented by the formation of natural lactic acid bacteria. It has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavor. During the fermentation process the natura sugars in the cabage leaves are used up leaving a tangy, crunchy, Kraut.
Here is a short video we did that explains what we did and the health benefits. Our video will show how to make Sauerkraut in a Jar
Here is our recipe for Sauerkraut
1 cabbage grates or finely shredded
1 onion grated
2 cucumbers finely sliced
1.5 TBSP of pickling salt. (You want to use an Iodine free so your kraut stays crunchy)
Jo’s Journey with her Grandson who had Severe Eczema
What is Eczema you ask?
Atopic Dermatitis – is dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, inside the elbows and behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can cause it to turn red, and to swell and itch even more.
Here is a real story with amazing results with just a few simple dietary suggestions as a result of a BioMeridian Scan.
Jo’s Grandson suffered from Eczema and had been to many doctors. The family was frustrated with no real good answers to how to best help this child. They went to Dermatologists and tried multiple kinds of creams and other remedies without good results.
Well – Le’ts let Jo Tell you in her own words:
Somewhere between the age of 1 and 2 my Grandson started being treated for Severe Eczema –
His Primary Care Doctor and even a Dermatologist continued to prescribe Steroids and other creams –
I helped my daughter with home remedies and she eliminated milk and other foods.
At one point the Dr did a blood test to identify allergies but nothing healed his skin.
The raw patches on the back of his knees, legs and feet were so severe that he got a staph infection,
I turned to Evelyn…
Her scan results showed Gluten (which earlier I said we had eliminated foods but it was her total results that made the difference)
Sun Screen also showed as skin issue – which putting Sun Screen on his fair skin was always a fight and he would fuss and this we passed it off as just being difficult. We studied Gluten and became aware of everything that has Gluten – It was summer and we switched to a Zinc Sunscreen.
The Little Guy detoxed for about 30 days and then his skin became clear and that little 5-year-old was so happy! He took over his health even at his young age, being aware of what he ate, and would remind you he needed the Enzymes.
This was something we struggled with for over 3 years and so Grateful for Evelyn and how she helped us.
In conclusion: It was amazing to find out that the root of his skin problems came from within. That his digestive tract was yelling for help through his skin. His Eczema became so bad that he had sores on his legs. At one point the sores became infected with staph.
The BioMeridian scan revealed Gluten Sensitivity. That included food and all external products that had Gluten in them.
Simply changing his diet. Adding a few minerals to help detox his body for a while and digestive enzymes his skin and whole body healed.
We would love to hear your story of returning to health with the use of a natural solution.
Adrenal fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress
By managing your stress, changing what you eat, when you eat and getting enough sleep you can do a bunch to help yourself.
What Are the Adrenal Glands?
The adrenal glands are small glands located on top of each kidney. They produce hormones that you can’t live without. Cortisol helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions. With adrenal gland disorders, your glands make too much or not enough hormones.
The Adrenal Glands – Beyond Fight or Flight
We all know they control your fight or flight but how does this help or hinder us in today’s fast pace high pace environment?
We are no longer being chased by tigers but to say we don’t have stress would be an understatement for most of us.
Managing stress is an important thing but not always 100% do-able.
What do the Adrenal Glands Do?
The Adrenal Glands help the body keep the balance so that we can feel good and be on top of our game when we need to:
During our workday
During stressful driving situations.
Being calm in annoying situations
but what happens when we have too high a demands on our adrenal glands?
What if we work ourselves into a situation where we depend on the fight or flight body management of our adrenal glands all the time?
You guessed it these glands become “fatigued”
Hi – I’m Mary Howard RN with Powerline Health bringing you another episode of Essentially YOURS. Where we try to come alongside you in your busy life and give you a few extra tools to help you in your day.
The BioMeridian Scan is a test done with a BioMeridian Machine. Using a stylist to touch meridian points on a hand and a foot. It measures the electrical currents of the body and sends your information back through a computer program. The results help tell you where your body is out of balance. Some systems may be over worked and some systems in your body may be under performing. The results help you determine changes needed in your diet, lifestyle, environment as well as supplements that may be helpful.
Hello and welcome to Powerline Health…
Meet Evelyn Hammon RN & Mary Howard RN
(If you prefer to read the content of this video we have it here for you)
This is my friend Evelyn Hammon, and she’s a registered nurse and has been working with people doing Bio-Meridian Scans for 18 years. As she became busier and busier, Evelyn couldn’t work all day doing scans and then mail product at night, it was too much! So we worked out a situation where I help people get the product they need and so I built the PowerlineHealth.com website and then you have the best of both worlds.
Mary is a registered nurse also, and we have loved working together for 10 years.
What is a BioMeridian scan and What Does it do?
It is testing the electrical magnetic field of the body and it does it through what is known as acupuncture points or Meridian points. Hence the name of the equipment is a Bio Meridian scan.
This will measure all these points and show us where there are weak areas where there are inflamed areas and help us see how to rebalance those areas.
What do You Need to do to be Prepared for Your BioMeridian scan?
You actually don’t need to do anything specific. Just do what you normally do. If you normally have breakfast and have coffee, go ahead and have that before coming in. If you’re someone that does intermittent fasting and you don’t eat until noon and your appointment’s at nine, go ahead and do the same thing because we want to see how your body is acting in your everyday life and that will help us see if we need to alter anything. I see people here and run a computer scan on them and it gives us an idea of what their body needs.
I found this great recipe for a home-made vegetable wash. This is so easy to make and so handy to use. Vinegar and lemon essential oil have many antimicrobial properties so it works well to your vegetables with.
Why use Lemon Essential Oils to wash your fruit?
Lemon Essential Oil helps cut through the oily and waxy substances that are used on fruit and vegetables. Some of those substances on the fruits and vegetables are pesticides, some are substances stores use to make the fruit shine and stay fresh looking longer.
Recipe for Vegetable Wash
1 cup filtered or distilled water
3/4 cup organic apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp baking soda
10 drops of Lemon essential oil
16 oz glass spray bottle
Spray this on your fruit or vegetables and wait a little bit – then wash. The other way is to put a 2 teaspoons in a basin of water and wash fruit with it.
Emulsify your Essential Oils for your Veggie Wash
The essential oils tend to float to the top of your spray so be sure to shake well before each use. Unless you emulsify the oils into the baking soda – We will show you how to do that on the video.
Vinegar and Baking Soda are important ingredients to help remove the pesticides from the fruit. While lemon has powerful abilities to kill bacteria.
If you are a fan of fruity or sweet drinks, Lime essential oil is your new best friend. Lime essential oil will add a tart, naturally sweet flavor to your favorite slushies, smoothies, or any drink warm or cold.

What is all the Talk about Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid?
I have been very interested in Collagen lately – I started using it some time back and seem to be having some good results. My fingernails are stronger. I notice less soreness when I do activities that I don’t normally do. It seemed like something you all would like too so here is a bit of research I did that you all might find helpful too:
Wake your kids on the right side of the bed with this energizing diffuser blend. The sweet aromas of Tangerine and Lime blend perfectly with the minty, fresh scent of Spearmint for a perfect morning aroma.
I have spent a lot of time this week talking about teas but replacing other beverages in our life with non-caloric drinks can make life just a little more interesting and break up your day a bit.
Coffee is not that healthy for you
Coffee is not that healthy for you in large amounts – more than one cup a day. Finding something warm to drink in the fall and winter feels like a must. I have actually grown to love hot teas (and cold herbal teas) and hope you will too. Watch our short VideoRead More…
