I Tweeted out the free ebook you have on the site here as well as the two you have on Amazon today (hope that’s OK). I love your ebooks; I think they’re very good quality. Please let me know if you ever decide to set up an affiliate program, as I’d like to take a look at joining.

Hey Don, I just received your book in the mail “Deserts for Two” from Amazon. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes! As I was going through the book I noticed that a few recipes like the “Raspberry Pie” and the “Black Currant Pie” call for 1/4 cup of “apple smoothie”. Is the recipe for that somewhere in the book? I seem to be missing it. Help!
Page 2 also offers a “free gift” of 3 ebooks, “Rainbow Smoothies”, “Superfoods Free Desserts” and “Superfoods Reference book”. I cannot find those on the website that you listed. Help!

“Apple Smoothie” is just that, smoothie made from apples only. As for the 3 books mentioned, they are now merged in the Superfoods Cookbook – Book Two:
“3 Superfoods books that were offered for free before are now merged into this “Superfoods Cookbook – Book Two” book with additional 40+ recipes!” You can find it under “EBOOKS” and then “FREE EBOOK” in the top menu.

• 1 Tbsp. olive oil
• 1/2 cup of low fat parmesan or shredded cheddar cheese
• 1 tsp of flax seeds meal
• 1/2 tsp. oregano or thyme or any other herbs

Please don’t post this, hopefully this won’t automatically post-but, I have no way of contacting you to unsubscribe except this form.
You see, even though I LOVE your recipes and was losing weight, last year I discovered I was in kidney failure-stage 5-and had to go on dialysis. I don’t need to be on a ‘diet’ anymore…dialysis is sucking all liquids, food, nutrients, etc. out of me and what I’m allowed to eat is not balanced nor healthy, which includes most Superfoods unfortunately. I’m still losing weight with very little options to eat and that machine taking away what goes in…LOL, worst ‘diet’ EVER!
Please, unsubscribe me from you list and emails…but, feel free to let people know…your diest and recipes are WONDERFUL…and my kidney failure is due to high blood pressure and your diet was helping with my B/P control-but, I started it too late. I want people to start this immediately before they end up like me.
PLEASE, do ONE THING for me…let people know that not knowing about their kidneys functioning is the #! cause of kidney failure…diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. is just the first possible causes-it’s the unknown that hits you in the end. Tell EVERYONE, go your doctors and get tested to check kidney functions EVEY YEAR. If caught in time, it’s possible to halt the progression with simple diet control. THIS SHOULD BE CHECKED YEARLY for everyone, children to adult, at annual check-ups.
It’s simply a blood test and a little urine sample…but, this inexpensive test can save your kidneys and life. MOST DOCTORS DO NOT do these tests every year!!! That is why the cases of some stage of kidney disease and many deaths are climbing…
Facts most people aren’t aware of…
In 2013, more than 650,000 patients per year in the United States and an estimated 2 million patients worldwide are affected by end stage renal disease (ESRD).
ESRD is increasing in the United States by 5% per year.
Those who live with ESRD are 1% of the U.S. Medicare population but account for 7% of the Medicare budget.
More than 100,000 patients in the United States are on the kidney transplant list, but each year there are less than 20,000 available donor kidneys.
The need for donor kidneys in the United States is rising at 8% per year.
The number of patients in the United States diagnosed with ESRD is increasing by 5% each year. Mortality rates vary depending on the ESRD treatment. After one year of treatment, those on dialysis have a 20-25% mortality rate, with a 5-year survival rate of 35%. Persons who receive transplants have a 3% mortality rate after 5 years.
(*AGE is not a factor in these findings-from newborns to Senors can be effected and unaware.)
Internationally the numbers are staggering. Estimates are that 2 million people worldwide suffer from ESRD, and the number of patients diagnosed with the disease continues to increase at a rate of 5-7% per year. Taiwan, Japan, Mexico, the United States, and Belgium currently have the highest prevalence of ESRD. And while extensive data on worldwide mortality rates is lacking, a 2007 report shows that U.S. mortality risk was 15% higher than in Europe and 33% higher than in Japan on comparable treatment modalities.
At present, ESRD patients have two treatment options:
Transplantation: live and deceased donor kidneys
Dialysis: hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis
The best current treatment for ESRD is kidney transplantation, which requires a donor match, major surgery, and a lifetime regimen of immunosuppressant medications to prevent rejection. For those ESRD patients able to receive a kidney transplant, the outlook is positive; the five-year survival rate for transplant recipients is over 80%. But:
There is an acute shortage of donor organs for ESRD patients. There are more than 100,000 ESRD patients on the U.S. transplant wait list. Yet, in 2014 there were only 17,105 donor kidneys available in the United States for transplant. There were less than 70,000 donor kidneys available worldwide.
The need for donor kidneys is rising at 8% per year, yet their availability has not grown to match.
The transplanted live kidney is treated by the body as a foreign object and, as a result, the patient must take immunosuppressants for the life of the transplant. These drugs can have numerous side effects. And because immunosuppressants block the immune system, the transplant recipient is at a greater risk for infections and cancers.
The only alternative today to kidney transplantation is dialysis.
Hemodialysis involves pumping a patient’s blood through an external circuit for filtration before it is pumped back into the body. A typical hemodialysis schedule is three sessions per week, for 3-5 hours per session at a medical facility.
Peritoneal dialysis uses the patient’s own abdomen across which waste is exchanged from the blood and flushed out regularly through a permanent tube in the abdomen. Peritoneal dialysis does not require regular trips to a medical facility but still requires regular treatment at home.
Hemodialysis is the far more common type of dialysis—about 90% of all dialysis patients.
While effective in the short term, hemodialysis has drawbacks:
It is confining and inconvenient; patients are tethered to a machine for three- to four-hour sessions in a clinic three times per week.
Dialysis is exhausting for patients and fraught with morbidity and eventual mortality.
Also, for those with healthy kidneys, corneas, etc…please sign DONOR CARDS or the back of your Driver’s license to give a GIFT OF LIFE to someone, should you pass on. It means a chance at LIFE for someone!!!
Take care…keep on helping others…and keep your fingers crossed that a kidney and me somehow match up someday soon.

Thank you so much for so many details about kidney diseases. I have unsubscribed you. I wish you all the best!!

Ooops, SORRY…updated facts I forgot to add…but, show people who think it won’t happen to them NEED to KNOW:
An estimated 26 million American adults have kidney disease, according to the National Kidney Foundation, but most aren’t even aware they are sick. The disease kills more people in the U.S. each year than breast cancer or prostate cancer, and 1 in 3 Americans is at risk.
The incidence of end-stage renal failure soared nearly 600 percent from 1980 to 2009, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The share of adults 30 and older who have CKD is projected to rise from 13.2 percent today to 16.7 percent in 2030, according to a 2015 report in the American Journal of Kidney Diseases.
Kidney disease is called the silent killer, experts say, because the patient often doesn’t notice any symptoms until the disease has done severe damage.
CKD can cause other problems, including cardiovascular disease, a heart attack, a stroke and nerve damage as well as kidney failure.
• Kidney disease is the ninth-leading cause of death every year in the U.S.
• If you have these symptoms, see a doctor immediately: blood in the urine or foamy urine; painful urination; increased thirst; fatigue; puffiness around the eyes; swelling of face, hands, ankles and feet.
Early detection is the key. If people have a history of diabetes or high blood pressure, they should get tested for kidney disease once a year, Behringer said.
All that is needed is a urine analysis and blood test.
The Kidney Foundation provides free screening at events statewide, including during March, which is National Kidney Month.
Life is AMAZING and WONDERFUL every second of every day…and worth the trouble to lose weight, be healthy, and do the right tests to STAY HEALTHY!
EARLY DETECTION IS THE KEY TO LIFE!!!

I bought your Paleo Superfoods book and am excited to try the recipes. It says I get 3 free gifts but I couldn’t find them on your website using the link provided in the cookbook. That link routes me to this website. The gifts were Rainbow Smoothies, Free Desserts, and SuperfoodsToday Reference, all of which sound fabulous. Do you have a link?
Thanks for all your doing to help me get healthier and help a kid with a chronic illness to have a little easier time of it with tasty food that is actually going to help him get stronger.

Those 3 books are now joined in the “Superfoods Cookbook Book Two”, you can see that book at the top of this page.
