A Personal Note from Victoria

Dear friends,

First, I would like to say a big heart felt Thank You To all of you for your numerous letters of support that arealways so helpful to me and inspire me to work harder and to dig deeper.

I am thrilled to let you know that Ihave finished working on my newest book Green Smoothie Revolution andwill put this book into print as soon as I will have enough funds. In order toraise money for this book I am going to teach a series of classes in the United States and Canada. I would prefer to teachlarger audiences (70 people or more). If you are interested in hosting myclass, please write to me at:  with “Speaking Engagement” in the subject line.

 Thanks to you, my email list isgrowing quickly with several hundred new subscribers from all over the worldjoining every month It currently extends 10,000. For comparison, when I sent myvery first newsletter in January of 2005, I had only 250 subscribers. In 2007there was only one person who has unsubscribed from my list. I feel a strongconnection with all of you. Through my newsletters I share my research and mythoughts with you. You email me with your ideas, send me some valuabletestimonials and some provocative questions. This communication has mutualbenefits for us all. However, it becomes increasingly hard to respond to youremail inquires as they also quickly grow in numbers. This has become even morefrustrating lately as many of you have sophisticated anti-spam programs and myreplies to you often come back to me, stopped by those Mailer Daemons. Tocombat this obstacle, I am now creating a forum, where I will be answering themost popular questions on a weekly basis and you will be able to witness theentire dialogue whenever you want.

In addition, I am organizing a seriesof teleconferences, where I will share my newest and most exciting research andanswer your questions live. I will send you a separate email about theseprojects in a couple of days.

And finally! I received probably themost exciting message from my dentist that I have ever dreamed of! Let me back upa little bit. I have several molars missing because they were extracted inerror when I was in my twenties. I have been told by dentists that because Ihadn’t have so many molars for so many years, my jaw bone has melted away andany dental work (holistic or standard) was problematic. My current dentist toldme the same thing two years ago. Today I visited him for a miner treatment andhe had to do an X-ray of my teeth. He told me that my jaw bone has a wonderfuland beautiful bone density and I now can have the dental work done that I couldonly dream about before. I kept telling him that it couldn’t be and is he sure?He kept looking at my x-rays and assured me that my jaw bone is very healthy asin a young person. It is especially amazing considering that I am 52 years old,the age when women usually lose bone density!


Many of you would probably want toknow what I have been doing that was different in these two years. I did twothings. I made an extensive effort to exercise and massage my jaws in differentways (also with the jaw exerciser) and I consumed two quarts of green smoothiedaily with the huge emphasis on dandelions. This plant is a world champion incalcium. No wonder it is called dandelion – ( French: Tooth of a lion)

There is a world of difference betweenthe calcium that we get from dairy and from greens. Yes, dairy contain calcium.But it also makes our body pH a lot more acidic. Then in order to sustainalkaline pH of the body, our organism draws calcium back from the bone. This ishow the consumption of calcium-rich dairy can even cause osteoporoses! On th contrary,greens contain a lot of high quality calcium and at the same time, they makeour body pH more alkaline, protecting our bones from leaching calcium.

I feel so happy now!  After many years, even decades, of fruitlesslytrying whatever possible to strengthen my jaws, I almost gave up not Yet, withthe right approach, it became a reality for me. Actually, I have noticed how myteeth and gums became stronger in the last couple of years.

I will share more with you in myfuture articles and forums. Enjoy your greens!

In Health,


Sergei is sending you a big wild hello from the top of Mt. McLaughlin inOregon, where he is hiking today with a group of people!


Flowers for Hummingbirds
Text and photo by Valya Boutenko

Hummingbirds are one of the most charming creatures that enhanceour life and bring us closer to nature. While appreciating their beauty we wantto treat them in the most caring way. Unfortunately, the practice of feedingwhite sugar to hummingbirds is wide spread. While the scientists are telling usthat white sugar does not harm these birds, I am sure that it is just a matterof time before their research will prove that the opposite is true, similarlyas it is well-known how damaging white sugar is to humans, bees, and other creatures.

At the same time there is a simple, natural, and absolutely safeway to attract hummingbirds to your home by planting flowers, especially the redand purple ones.  Simply go to your localWal-Mart and buy some flowers in the pot for $1--$5 and you will have thehummingbirds circling around your window (balcony, porch, etc.) to yours and theirdelight.

Native to the tropics and Southwest America,the hummingbird feedsexclusively on the nectar that it sucks out of tubular flowers through its longcapillary tube or straw of a beak.

Hummingbirds get much oftheir water from nectar, and very strong solutions of sugar may causedehydration and kidney damage.[1]

Anybright color flowers attract hummingbirds. At our house in Oregon we tried geranium, fuchsia,impatiens, foxglove, petunias, bee balm, honeysuckle, trumpet creeper, andcolumbine.
