Global Wellness Day

Have you heard of “Global Wellness Day”? Wellness is far more than spa and beauty. They define wellness as:

“Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.  It is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare.

“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.”

In their 7 step manifesto they promote

  1. walking an hour a day
  2. drinking more water
  3. don’t use plastic bottles
  4. eat healthy food
  5. do a good deed
  6. have a family dinner with your loved ones
  7. sleep at 10:00pm

Sound familiar to anything you know?

This year its on Saturday June 10. Is there a way we can use this to connect with people?

Debunking the anti-soy myth

Many people have been scared off from healthful foods by the anti-soy propaganda, whitch claims that soy is  almost a poison.

Soy  is simply a bean.

Research has shown overwhelmingly that whole and minimally processed ( non GMO) soy foods (like  tofu and tempeh,other homade variations ) provide meaningful health benefits.

They can protect against breast cancer.

There were concerns that these plant estrogens could potentially promote hormonal cancers, such as breast and prostate cancers; however, those fears were unfounded – whole and minimally processed soy foods protect against those types of cancer.

this effekt come from the isoflavones, which have a number of anti-cancer effects that are unrelated to their ability to bind the estrogen receptor.
Accordingly, soy foods are not only associated with decreased risk of hormonal cancers, but also lung, stomach, and colorectal cancers.

The Whole package-Synergistic effects

This below is an Abstract from Article that shows that healing and protecting properties of the carotenoids from tomatoes working in the best way when those  are in the combination, as God created them!

“For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD Isaiah 66.2

Synergistic effects

Lycopene is the major carotenoid in tomatoes. Tomatoes contain a matrix of many bioactive components, including vitamin C, vitamin E, other carotenoids (a-, β-, γ- carotene, lutein), and flavonoids. Their synergistic interactions, when used in combination, may be responsible for the observed beneficial effects of tomato-based products. This study investigated the synergistic antioxidant activity of lycopene in combination with β-carotene, vitamin E, and lutein. A liposome system was used to test the synergistic antioxidant activity. The carotenoid mixtures were more efficient in protecting liposome from oxidation than the individual carotenoid .Research Article

Help request Montebrollo Salute, Italy

Dear friends,

A while has gone since my last newsletter in 2015, so I am pleased to update you about Montebrollo’s activities here in Bologna (Italy). The vegan cooking courses have continued to take place during this year 2016, with the presence of a very good vegan cook of Bologna. In one way it is more practical to have Davide live in the same city, on the other hand he is not an Adventist, so we miss the personal testimonies of Concetta and Leila while leading out their courses. My plan is to have them join us again in autumn 2016. And of course keep a friendship with Davide that can lead him to think that Christians aren’t after all so bad! (so many people here in Italy have a distorted idea of God and church due to the negative influence of a certain church in the history of this country).

After the cooking-class, we usually have a lunch together in the big living-room and a walk in the beautiful paths around the house. The hills nearby remind us a little bit of Tuscany, which is not so far away from us.

A small group of participants are coming now regularly to the courses and a friendship has developed from these events. The words of Giulia, the daughter of a couple that loves to come and herself participates, has especially touched me: “Thank you Alessia for these moments of peace and fellowship in your house. A long time has passed since I have seen my parents in such a good mood and harmony among themselves!”. The couple, that I know personally since the father is a MS patient of mine, has experienced a negative atmosphere in their relationship, due also to his invalidating illness.

Such are the rewards for me, small but significant: to make a difference in the life of others by sharing a place that many say brings a deep peace within, that they say to experience very rarely. Indeed the soothing sounds and atmosphere of nature around the property mean a lot.

These and other experiences have convinced me about the need to move to the country-house myself. So, the need for a person/couple that would help with running the B&B and the health courses is now more than ever urgent. They would help with cleaning and preparing breakfast, and with running the orchard and garden around the house. In exchange they would be offered lodging in the house, like an au-pair exchange. They would need a car, and some economic independence. I am thinking about some students that have ended a medical missionary school, a retired couple that wants to support a missionary oriented health project, or a single lady with a vision and experience. As the B&B activity will increase, the work will too and it will be possible to pay a salary.

My request to you is to please pray for this small project and spread this particular request with friends and church members. If you have any questions, suggestion or idea please feel free to write me back, as it is always nice to read news from you and keep in contact. You are also welcome to visit! Thank you for your support and friendship, God bless you always,

Open Vacancy: Bed & Breakfast, Bologna

Welcome to Montebrollo Salute, Bologna

We run a country-house on the hills of Bologna where we host since 2014 regular vegan cooking classes and health programs for the general public: friends and patients of the physiotherapy clinic that Alessia Venturoli runs downtown.

The idea is to start this year 2016 with a christian bed and breakfast, so to share our christian view of life through friendship and literature and healthy breakfasts every morning.

For this project we offer a working place as helper in the running of the bed and breakfast.

For more info see our Newstart Map.
