Hemp Milk Ice Cream

Hemp Milk Ice Cream

(Vegan Version)

¼ cup shelled hempseeds

1 cup water

1 squirt of agave

1 ripe banana, peach or ½ cup of strawberries


Place seeds into a blender and add one cup of water. Turn the blender on at multiple speeds and agitate the seeds till they become a thick hemp cream.

Add vanilla, agave and fruit. Place the thick hemp milk in a container or ice cube trays and freeze for 5 hours. Run the frozen hemp milk through a champion juicer with the blank attachment or blender with frozen drink spout and serve.

Dr. G’s version

(Being gluten and dairy free, I am happy to be able to tolerate eggs every so often…)

I make a French Vanilla custard based hemp ice cream that I eat in dark corners of the office so that I don’t have to share it.


4 organic egg yolks

¼ cup raw sugar or agave

1 ½ cups Hemp milk (straight from the box)

Vanilla extract to taste (they have alcohol and gluten free versions)

Pinch of salt


Beat egg yolks and sugar in a stainless steel bowl until mixture is light, thick and smooth. A ribbon is formed when you lift the beaters.

In another small saucepan scald the hemp milk. Stir in vanilla and salt. Take this heated mixture and pour it over the eggs. Mix well.

Place this new mixture into a bowl or on top of a double boiler (Bain Marie) over a pan of simmering water. Using a wooden spoon, stir slowly and continually for 12 minutes until the custard is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Do not allow the water to boil.

Remove the mixture from the heat. Cool to room temperature. You could add frozen organic unsweetened fruit into the mixture at this point. Pour the hemp cream into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions.

Before serving you can soften up the ice cream and run it through the food processor to get a soft serve consistency.

The High Cost of Fat

By the year 2025, 40-45% of the US adult population will be obese. It is estimated that about 60% of Americans are overweight. More than 300,000 deaths per year in the US are associated with excess body fat. Direct economic costs of obesity in the US were $52 billion in 1995 and now exceed $147 billion. These costs do not include any associated chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Nine percent of all medical costs in the U.S. are due to obesity.

Over 50 billion dollars more is spent on obesity than on cancer.

Lost productivity costs associated with obesity in 1994 were estimated at $3.9 billion and included more than 39 million days of lost work.

Obesity leads to a state of inflammation and this pro-inflammatory state contributes to the following chronic conditions:

Heart Disease

Systemic Inflammation


Diabetes, Type II

Metabolic Syndrome

Impaired Immunity


Depression and Fatigue

Fatty Liver

Gallbladder Disease

Sleep Apnea/Insomnia


Musculoskeletal Pain

Polycystic Ovarian Disease

Extensive research reveals that fat cells have an elaborate secretory vocabulary that promotes cellular communication between fat cells, organs and the brain. Adipose or fat tissue releases more than 20 substances into circulation. This networked communication creates a vascular and metabolic network which can lead to cancer.

Second Nature has launched a unique weight loss program that addresses the underlying causes of weight gain and retention. Food allergies, low thyroid function, viruses, bowel imbalances, thought patterns, chronic stress, sleep debt and heavy metal toxicity all contribute to the inability to lose weight.

Our program introduces a different paradigm. We work to understand why your body struggles to maintain a specific desired weight. There is always a reason(s) why a body sustains body fat accumulation.

Second Nature’s weight loss program is not a diet. It is a plan that supports your mental and physical health so that you can achieve your optimum potential. We identify, analyze and resolve individual barriers to weight loss.

The program includes:

A pre and post consult with Dr. Guggenheim, 4 weeks of group meetings, metabolic burning supplements, delicious nutritious meal plans that foster a healthy relationship with food, exercise plans, weekly colon cleansing and tremendous support during your transformation. Successful weight loss programs require a comprehensive integrated medical approach.

If you are tired of dieting or throwing away money on expensive supplements that do not address the whole picture then our transformational program is for you. You will learn new thinking patterns and choices that empower your body and mind for life.

Look for our next post with a great interview with Dr. David Kessler, former FDA head, and his take on how the fast food industry has manipulated your taste buds for food addiction.

MMS- A New Way to Bolster the Immune System

Called the Miracle Mineral Solution is a 28% solution of sodium chlorite in distilled water. When activated with citric acid, this solution produces chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is used as a biocide in municipal water treatment centers. It was also the principle agent used in the decontamination of buildings after the 2001 anthrax attacks in the U.S. It has been used after hurricane disasters to eradicate toxic mold from houses. It is effective against viruses, bacteria, protozoa including Ciardi and Cryptosporidium. It may also be used against yeasts, molds, fungi, MRSA and other deadly pathogens.

First discovered by Jim Humble, scientist, chemist and humanitarian, he gave it to a member of his gold expedition who came down with malaria. Humble gave him stabilized oxygen and the sick man became well within hours. Jim Humble figured out why the stabilized oxygen was effective and found that trace amounts of chloride dioxide killed the malaria. That led to over 75,000 documented successful cases of treating Malaria in African nations including Uganda and Malawi. Chlorine dioxide only acts on pathogens and leaves the healthy cells alone.

Chlorine Dioxide is different from chlorine that is linked to cardiovascular events and cancer. Biochemistry note: Chlorine dioxide is one chlorine ion bound to two ions of oxygen. It is ready to accept electrons from “electron donors.” All pathogens are electron donors. The chloride dioxide ion enters the blood stream and contacts a harmful pathogen and forces it to surrender its electrons. Chlorine dioxide cells only detonate pathogens. Pathogens are recognizable because they have a pH below 7 and a positive ionic charge. A microscopic explosion (up to 5 electrons are taken) takes place and the pathogen is rendered harmless. Energy is released and the former pathogen is oxidized and becomes a harmless salt. A biochemical match made in heaven!

Chlorine dioxide is volatile and prevents pathogens from developing resistance. It has to be activated with an acid like: vinegar, lemon juice or citric acid. Chlorine dioxide is approved by the EPA to safely remove pathogens and contaminants. This oral treatment is a safe and cost effective treatment alternative to I.V. hydrogen peroxide treatments. No needles, 3 hour drips or $150.00 sessions.

Chlorine dioxide is safer than chlorine, selective for pathogens and does not create harmful compounds in water. Our bodies are columns of water. In 1999, The American Society of Analytical Chemists named chloride dioxide to be the most powerful pathogen killer known to man.

Dr. Guggenheim has been part of a physician’s group who are environmental detoxification experts for the past five years. Chloride dioxide has been discussed as part of several treatment protocols. Because of the clinical success with underlying pathogens in chronic disease, we will introduce it to Second Nature patients.

Remember you must be medically supervised with this protocol and follow appropriate titration dosage otherwise you can make yourself very ill. Call us to talk about your treatment goals.
