Overcoming Crohn's Disease

Hi, my name is Jennifer Pressimone.  Many of you know me as the founder of JennScents and the former owner of the Clermont Herb Shop.  Some of you have heard my story but some of you might be surprised to know that before starting JennScents the top doctors at Shand's sent me home to die.

I battled Crohn's and Colitis almost 12 years ago, and struggled with foods I could tolerate. My story is similar to Jordan Rubin's, got sick, lost weight, was dying and not many options.  I managed over the years to seek out some healthier foods, but none that are the quality and convenience of Beyond Organic.  

It was nice to have dairy again, and fat nutrient foods to helped me feel better physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  It simplified my life from running around and researching foods that I could eat and absorb.  

I do my grocery shopping every week with Beyond Organic, and buy in bulk when I can to save even more money. It is a great community of people who share recipes, health tips and motivate me to continue my health journey.  

It also nice to be a part of something bigger, doing God's work and sharing with those that are less fortunate with their "Give a Meal, Get a Meal" program. 

I've been able to share with my friends and family and earn income that helps me not only get my food for free, but build a part-time to full-time income.  

I am blessed to be surrounded by incredible food, great business partners and empowerment for personal and professional growth.  If you would like to connect please email me anytime.

Living with Celiac Disease

My name is Karen Walsh and I have Celiac's.

They say everything happens for a reason.  I really believe this. I was really sick for many years and none of the physicians I went to could find what was wrong with me.  They kept trying to treat my symptoms and not treat the cause.  I ended up in the hospital for 18 days, two operations, ICU and blood transfusions.  I was finally diagnosed with Celiac. 

I had to go on a gluten free diet and this took me to the health food store.  I started researching everything I  needed to know to heal myself. Then to make things worse, my son at 17 was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis.  I found the book Patient Heal Thyself.  I was amazed at what Jordan Rubin had been through and how he persevered to heal himself.  I set off on my own journey to educate myself on natural healing.

I became certified as a Certified Natural Health professional and connected myself with other holistic professionals.  I knew I wanted to work in a business that had something to do with natural health.  I have a degree in Social Work and have always loved helping people improve their lives.  Now I wanted to help them improve their health. 

I learned of a new company about to launch.  It was called Beyond Organic.  When I heard it was owned by Jordan Rubin, I said sign me up!  I knew his products were going to be of the highest quality and everything he does is to the glory of God.  Thats the kind of business I want to represent!  

Recently, I had the opportunity to go to the Beyond Organic Ranch and it brought me to tears that one man is trying to change our food supply.  Thank you Jordan, your amazing! I love this company and the amazing foods.
We are Mission Marketers and are on a mission to help people improve their health through diet. I have met wonderful people along the way and with Gods help I am committed to helping this company grow. If you'd like to join me email me.  I would love to share this opportunity with you.

Where do essential oils come from?

Q: What are essential oils and where do they come from?

A: Essential oils are liquid extracts derived plants, roots, leaves, flowers, fruits, stems, peels, bark, berries and resins that are historically known to offer therapeutic properties such as antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. There have been numerous scientific research studies demonstrating these benefits (reference, - National Center for Biotechnology Information).

In addition, 100% pure essential oils are known to shift, alter, change, modify, enhance and manage mood, physical, mental and emotional concerns and behaviors. They not only provide a pleasant scent (in most cases), they may assist the body to function optimally by supporting immunity, providing cellular energy, relieving nervous system issues and promoting an overall sense of well-being. They have a reputation to relax the body, rejuvenate the mind and release negative emotions.

Hear more about the amazing benefits of aromatherapy and its integration into the health arena in my interview with Dr. Cathy Rosenbaum on Your Holistic Health Internet Radio Show,  It will air on Friday, July 5th at 6pm.

Curcumin BP

Curcumin BP in the latest high-quality products from Nature's Sunshine.  Most people associate curcumin with inflammation, which is only one of its amazing benefits.  Inflammation is huge, but more importantly, this formulation with the addition of black pepper enhances its potency and bioavailability by driving it in deeper at a cellular level.

Curcumin, a rhizome in turmeric and part of the ginger family, has also historically been shown to inhibit joint tissue breakdown, protects liver cells and is a neuro-protective (for the aging brain).  Other buzz words associated with curcumin is cardiovascular, psoriasis, eczema, stiffness, back pain, immune and memory.

My personal testimony...started coming down with body aches and a migraine about 2 weeks ago. I took 4 curcumin (2 capsules one hour apart) and it helped my headache/migraine and body aches go away.  I was pretty impressed and have used for various inflammation and muscle soreness situations and have been very pleased. It has been easy on the digestive system and not bothered my IBS, rather has helped it.

I would say an important one to have in your Herbal Cabinet.

In health, Jennifer

Amasai- Delicious, Easily Digestible

Amasai is a traditional food of the Maasai Tribe of East Africa.  It is a cultured dairy beverage renowned for nutrient density, digestibility and high probiotic and content.  

Plus, at Beyond Organic all of our dairy comes from cows that eat grasses not grain and are never given hormones, steroids and antibiotics.  Each dairy cow is tested for A2 genetics.  If you or a loved one has given up dairy for health reasons, it would be worth your time to read about the benefits of A2 dairy.

Plain Amasai can be used in place of milk, buttermilk, or heavy cream for most recipes.  Rule of thumb is 2 parts water to 1 part Amasai for milk.  To use in place of buttermilk or cream it is an exact 1:1 ratio, so a cup of cream equals a cup of Amasai.

Amasai is great in smoothies, shakes, dressings, cheesecake, pancakes, and more.  Jordan even uses it to make  homemade ice cream & pieBe creative and send me your favorite recipe.  Here are a few that we hope you enjoy.

Homemade Sour Cream (courtesy of Denise D.)
1 cup  Amasai
1/4 cup white vinegar
In a screw-top jar or mason jar with lid, combine the Amasai and white vinegar. Shake the ingredients up a bit to thoroughly mix and let stand, covered, at room temperature for about 24 hours or until it becomes very thick. 

You can store your sour cream in the refrigerator in the original jar you mixed it in (or use some other resealable container) for up to one week. Make sure that your sour cream is well chilled before using.

"Ranch" Style Salad Dressing (courtesy of LIsa G.)
1 C plain Amasai
1/2 C mayo (homemade with apple cider vinegar, olive oil, free-range eggs and sea salt so it's healthy)
1/2 T lemon jc.
1/2 T dried parsley or 2 T fresh
3/4 t Celtic sea salt
1 lg clove garlic pressed
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

Blend all ingredients and place in the refrigerator to let the flavors blend a couple hours.  (If this recipe seems sour to your tastebuds, leave out the lemon jc.) 

Sprouted Grain Pancakes (courtesy Bill R.)
Use Arrowhead Mills Sprouted Grain Pancake Flour, substitute butter or applesauce for the canola oil.  Use Amasai instead of milk.  Top with organic butter and Grade B maple syrup.
Plain Amasai is sold in packs of 6 or in the variety pack (includes 2 bottles of each flavor.)  Email me if you need help logging in to your account.
