The Power of Perennials Vegetables

The Power of Perennials

July 18, 2017

A true super-food blend, I am particularly proud of our Perennial Greens Powder because, as the head gardener at Dr. Cowan’s Garden, it has been my task during the past year to plant and nurture these plants (except for the moringa leaves).  Our tree collards are heading into their third year, and after making peace with the gophers, we now have healthy, robust, vibrant plants that should be with us for many years.

Our Sea-Vegetables Powder Is Certified Organic and Super-Nutritious

My maternal grandmother was born and raised in Lithuania, the second youngest of 11 children. They emigrated to the U.S. when my grandmother was a young child, and when she reached her mid-80s, all her siblings were still alive, and she was still referred to as “the baby.”

Our Wild Ramp Powder 'Captures' This Rare Culinary Prize

May 31, 2017

The core mission of Dr. Cowan's Garden is to help people increase vegetable diversity in their diets.  One of the best ways to do this is to add wild and perennial vegetables.   The problem, as many have experienced, is that most of us don’t have time to forage for the day’s meal, or we live in a place that makes growing perennial vegetables impossible.

Burdock Root: A Living Picture of Transformation

May 16, 2017

The last time I wrote about burdock root, I highlighted its prominent role in most of the famous herbal formulas for cancer. Today, I want to highlight the other main benefit of burdock root, which is its effect on the skin.

Why Burdock Root Is in Many Famous Herbal Cancer Formulas

Why Burdock Root Is in Many Famous Herbal Cancer Formulas

May 16, 2017

First, I must confess that none of the burdock root in our Burdock Root Powder is from our garden in Napa.   (It comes from a small, Northern California organic farm.) For those of you who are gardeners, you are probably smiling to yourself, knowing full well why I decided not to convert the beautiful Napa garden into a burdock field.   Burdock is nothing if not tenacious. Once this perennial plant establishes, you will never get rid of it.   Yet, and this is a huge “yet” for us, burdock root is one of the most therapeutic foods that we know.

Vegetables' Chloroplast Excretes the 'Heavy' Water

Vegetables' Chloroplast Excretes the 'Heavy' Water

May 09, 2017

Two studies published in major peer-reviewed medical journals within the past decade should be, in my opinion, major breakthroughs in the use of natural medicine in the treatment of chronic disease.   The first, published in The Journal of Cancer Therapy in 2011, showed that men with stage 4 prostate cancer who drank deuterium-depleted water had a mean survival time of 11.02 years as compared to historical norms of about 18 to 24 months.   The second study, published in the prestigious journal Medical Hypothesis in 2016, indicated that a ketogenic diet improves cellular energy generation because of metabolized fats’ ability to generate deuterium-depleted water in the tissues.

The Many Gifts of Our Maui-Grown Turmeric

The Many Gifts of Our Maui-Grown Turmeric

April 25, 2017

To introduce our Turmeric Powder, I want to share with you the first time I heard about the use of turmeric as a medicinal plant, which was in the early 1980s.  It was at that time, when I was first exposed to anthroposophical medicine and the work of Rudolf Steiner, that I learned about the medicines Steiner called the “dorons,” the group of medicines that includes cardiodoron, hepatodoron, choleodoron and others. “Doron” means “gift” to the heart, liver, gall bladder, etc.

The Low-Down on Oxalates

The Low-Down on Oxalates

March 29, 2017

Oxalates are a simple, naturally occurring compound found in many plant foods, particularly vegetables.   Interestingly, oxalates are also naturally produced in our bodies. Although the role of these endogenously (made within us) produced oxalates is as yet unclear, they might function as natural chelators, substances that ferry harmful substances, such as metals, out of our bodies.

Two of the things I probably loved the most as a teenager were sports and Russian novels.  My favorite novelist was Dostoyevsky, and at one point my sister claimed that I had morphed into the underground man.

Horseradish: A Nutritional and Medicinal Standout

Horseradish: A Nutritional and Medicinal Standout

December 06, 2016

My earliest memories of horseradish come from childhood and our annual Passover dinners.  I remember Passover as my favorite holiday, probably because of the feast that was the highlight of the holiday.  It was the only time of the year my entire family gathered in one place to celebrate with a special meal.
