Welcome To Candy Land!

Don Tolman’s Whole In One Organics is proud to announce a new addition to our website and online store called Candy Land!

Over the years we have spent quite a bit of time teaching and encouraging Self Care Health with whole foods and ongoing training.

We like to include the kids in this training as well, because it never hurts to start at a young age, but sometimes the kids need a bit of a change in their lives and let’s face it, so do we as adults (young kids at heart).

To accommodate this need, we have decided to open up our own candy shop!

Now before you go and get all frantic and think that we have thrown in the towel, let us explain.

This Is Not Your Typical Candy Store!

We have looked far and wide and have found items to put in the store that are more wholesome and healthier for the kids to eat when compared to regular candy and sweet treats.

We will be adding new products in upcoming weeks, but for now, we are proud to announce the first of two candy store items.

Here’s a bit of info that Don wanted to share with you:


If you enjoy ‘popping’ Chewing gum into your mouth after eating, driving a car, when you’re bored, or at a social gathering, etc. Then you’ll be glad to know that surprising health benefits of chewing gum are now finally being rediscovered.

1. Did you know that chewing Gum Boosts your Mental Power
Neuro-cognitive studies show that Chewing gum boosts brain activity in several ways.

For instance, psychologists have discovered that chewing gum can help you enhance your memory!

An experiment was conducted where two groups of people took the same examination. One group was given gum to chew while the other was not.

Results showed that the gum-chewing group got higher test scores!

This boost in memory might be linked to the chewing motion of the jaw. When you chew gum, your hippo-campus becomes stimulated. The hippo-campus is the part of the brain which plays a major role in memory.

Aside from boosting your memory, chewing gum also encourages more blood flow to the brain. When you chew gum, your heart rate increases and more oxygen is delivered to your brain area.

2. Chewing Gum Reduces Stress and Tension
Chewing gum can help you clear the toxic effects of stress and anxiety.

Research has shown that students who chew gum during exams tend to be more alert and focused. This is because gum helps you cope with the stress that is often associated with tests.

Stress is not the only negative emotion that chewing gum can help you through. Whenever you feel irritated or frustrated, many have found that chewing gum can help you relax.

3. Chewing Gum can help lead to Weight Loss and help to stop smoking and other addictions
The next time you crave cigarette, a snack or a second helping of dessert, pop some Chewing Gum into your mouth instead.

Since gum contains very few calories per serving, it makes an ideal snack that will not ruin your healthy diet.

The act of chewing and the flavor of the gum will help you clear your cravings for other snacks that are high in toxic calories and toxic fats.

4. Chewing Gum Improves Oral Health
You were probably told when you were little that fake sweets and toxic candy can rot your teeth.

However, Chewing Healthy Gum can do just the opposite!

If you tend to suffer from oral health problems like bad breath or gum infection, you might want to Chew some Gum to relieve these symptoms. When you Chew Gum, your saliva production is also stimulated.

If you didn’t know already, saliva is the most important factor when it comes to maintaining good oral and digestive health. Saliva has protector/inhibitor (antibacterial) properties and can help flush out food debris, remaining toxic sugars and other harmful food and drink acids in your mouth.

Sweet by Nature (no refined or artificial sweeteners) gum has also been found to be effective in protecting the enamel of your teeth. In fact, Chewing on some sugar-free Healthy Gum after meals can lessen your tooth cavities.

5. Chewing Gum Improves Digestion
You might not be aware of it but chewing gum can also improve your digestion, as long as you Chew your Gum after meals.

Have you ever noticed how you frequently swallow while Chewing your Gum, because of excess saliva production? This helps keep digestive acids down in your stomach.

Why do people chew gum?

People have been Chewing gum for thousands of years, ever since the ancient Greeks began popping wads of mastic tree resin, called Tears of Chios, sap from the pine/cedar tree’s on the Island of Chios in their mouth to sweeten the breath. Socrates, Plato, Pythagorus all chewed gum.

Again it turns out there’s an excellent rationale for this long-standing cultural habit: Chewing Healthy Gum is an effective booster of mental performance, conferring all sorts of benefits without any toxic side effects.

The latest investigation of gum chewing comes from a team of psychologists at St. Lawrence University.

The experiment went like this: 159 students were given a battery of demanding cognitive tasks, such as repeating random numbers backward and solving difficult logic puzzles.

Half of the subjects Chewed non-toxic Gum while the other half were given nothing.

Here’s where things get peculiar: Those randomly assigned to the Gum-Chewing condition significantly outperformed those in the control condition on five out of six tests.

What’s responsible for this mental boost?

Nobody really knows. It doesn’t appear to depend on glucose, since sugar-free gum generated the same benefits.

Instead, the researchers propose that gum enhances performance due to “mastication-induced arousal.”

The act of chewing, in other words, wakes us up, ensuring that we are fully focused on the task at hand. Unfortunately, this boost is fleeting.

The takeaway of this research is straightforward: When taking a test, save the gum for the hardest part, or for those questions when you feel your focus flagging. The gum will help you concentrate, but the help won’t last long.

This latest paper only adds to the impressive body of psychological literature on gum.

Last month, scientists at Coventry University found that people chewing mint gum showed a dramatic decrease in feelings of sleepiness.

The subjects also looked less exhausted when assessed with the Pupillographic Sleepiness Test (PST), which uses the oscillations of the pupils as a metric of tiredness.

When we chew gum, we gain alertness and attention, but without the jitters.

And then there’s this paper, from a researcher at Cardiff University.

133 volunteers were given cognitive tests with and without chewing gum. (They were also randomly assigned gum flavors, treated to a selection of fruits and mints.)

Approximately half of the volunteers were tested while listening to a screeching noise — this was the stress condition — while the other volunteers took the test in a quiet room.

After each testing session, the volunteers rated their mood and underwent a number of physiological measurements, including heart rate and salivary cortisol levels. (Cortisol is a stress hormone, but it’s also a good indicator of alertness.)

As expected, gum chewers were more attentive than non-chewers, with elevated heart rates and cortisol levels. They also had much faster reaction times, especially on more difficult reaction tests. They even appeared to be in a better mood.

Given the uncanny power of gum, it seems a little silly that we don’t allow it in the classroom. (If a pharmaceutical drug achieved these same results, although toxic most would be popping it.)

Of course, gum is disgusting and unsightly once it becomes litter, but it also appears to be a wonderful stimulant, allowing us to benefit from the attentional boost of eating without having to swallow or ingest calories. (Plus, fresh breath!)

A recent review of the gum-chewing literature summarizes the science: “Gum appears to be a functional food with function but no food.”


A glee club is a musical group or choir group, historically of male voices but also of female or mixed voices, which traditionally specializes in the singing of short songs—glees—by trios or quartets.

In the late 19th Century it was very popular in most schools and was made a tradition to have in American High Schools from then on.

The first named Glee Club was founded in Harrow School, in London, England, in 1787. Glee clubs were very popular in the UK from then until the mid-1850s but by then they were gradually being superseded by choral societies.

GLEE meant Pleasure of music and song… academics today deny this, they say it had nothing to do with joy and pleasure just classroom singing.

Made with chicle, a natural tree sap harvested sustainably from the rainforests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle(Greek Chios), but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff, even motor oil.

Glee Gum uses chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest, giving trees more value standing than chopped down for lumber. Plus, Glee comes packaged in biodegradable, recycled cardboard and resealable, recyclable pouches.

The American Heritage dictionary of 1890 defines “GLEEFUL’ as a “High Spirited Exultant Elevated Joy”…  literally a “HAPPY HEART”… ANCIENT WISDOM TAUGHT, “HEALTH COMES OF A HAPPY HEART”.
