  1. Soaring Deaths From Pain-Relieving Drugs (William Faloon – Life Extension). The pain relieving drugs mentioned in his article are non-prescription pain medications, considered over-the-counter drugs. You may have already heard about them, but people continue to use them.
  • Acetaminophen – cause of acute liver failure in the United States. The regular use of this drug is associated with the increased risk of kidney damage, kidney cancer and dementia as well. This is not mentioned as a warning on the label.
  • Ibuprofen – regular use of this one can inflict stomach and kidney issues.
  • Among the prescription drugs was OxyContin – approved for routine pain relief in 1995. It was promoted as a time-released drug. The widespread prescribing of opioid drugs began around 1999.

“Poisoning inflicted by non-opioid” and I add prescription pain drugs, “continue to disable and kill.”

The over-the-counter drugs were meant to taken moderately for acute pain. However, many people become addicted, overdose, and eventually experience serious health side affects or death.

There are non-lethal methods to treat pain naturally. Do your research, they include plant extracts such as sesamin, Boswellia, Black sesame oil, and Turmeric.

2. Another reason to exercise. You have probably heard it mentioned that if you go on long plane flights you need to get up and walk around, because sitting for long periods of time are not good for you. That is being verified according to studies that evaluated sedentary behaviors. Most people today spend more than half their waking hours sitting, at work, commuting, or at home – such as me right now working on this computer for more hours than I care to. The studies showed that any extended period of time sitting increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis – dangerous clots that commonly develop in the legs, that can break loose and travel to the lungs or the heart. It happened to a friend of mine. One day he was here and the next he was gone. He had been told by the doctor, only a weeks before, that they needed to watch the clots in his legs. Apparently there is no forewarning of when they might break off, and when they do, they travel fast through the body system. As with many diseases today, folks are turning to natural means of healing. It is suggested that “a combination of the enzyme nattokinase and French maritime pine bark extract provides a safe, natural approach to combating leg swelling and clotting.”

Do your research . Scientific Clinical trials have proven the protective circulatory benefits of these plant compounds.

3. With the ‘Jab’ causing serious side effects to include death, in and of those folks who chose to take it, the talk, now, in the medical world both allopathically and naturally is ‘how to counteract it’s debilitating affects.’ Too many people are losing family members – to include children, friends, work associates etc. You see sports figures, news broadcasters, etc. falling over dead right before your eyes. Something has to be done.

Causes of death include cardiovascular disease, cancer, and accelerated already health issues such as diabetes, COPD,  etc. Non-death issues include brain damage, mental decline, lung weakness, migraine headaches, gut issues, etc.

Short, but sweet. The above information is important because of the situation the world is in today. Take it to heart and adapt it according to the lifestyle in which you live. Do your own research. The backup is out there . 

GOD BLESS!!

Merry Christmas!

christmas religious clipart available for use in church ads 20 free ...  …to us a son is given.” Isaiah 9:6-7

As I did research about Christmas and how it came into being, I found many different versions of its creation from before Christ to now. You may find this intriguing as you read on.

“Christmas began as a celebration of the nativity story of Jesus in Rome in 354. It had been celebrated even earlier by Christians in the East, but they incorporated it into their Epiphany celebration on Jan. 6, which focused more on Jesus’ baptism. The celebration of Christmas in Rome replaced the pagan solar festivals that occurred on Dec. 25.” ( World View)

The story continued – saying the name “Christmas” comes from the Old English contraction for “Christ’s Mass,” which was first used in 1038.  It was embraced in the Middle Ages by the Catholic Church. Further, Christmas came about through many traditions of which some were unrelated to the birth of Christ. The tradition of gift giving was inspired by Father Christmas – later to become Santa Claus. This mythological figure’s origin is rooted in both religion and pagan folklore.  In the 19th century, there was a temporary shift away from celebrating Christmas. “In early America, there was little celebration of Christmas. The Puritans that settled New England did not approve and even banned it in Boston. Despite all this, Christmas was revived and revamped by writers such as Charles Dickens and Washington Irving. These writers emphasized elements of Christmas such as warm traditions, family, compassion and generosity.” (World View)

With media sources such as radio, newspapers, books, and TV we have learned through the years, that Christmas is important today as a religious holiday for Christians, because ‘it is celebrated world wide as a secular holiday and it accounts for significant economic activity. This in my opinion boots the ‘Jesus is the reason for the season’ right out the window. Yet Christmas is observed by billions of people around the world – some of who celebrate it for Jesus and some just for the gift giving – which in my observation has turned into a ‘who gave it to me and how much did it cost them’ situation.

I would like to see Christmas return to “Jesus is the reason for the season”

The following are quotes that I found to be inspiring.

Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love, a time when the love of God and the love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives manifest the presence of God. George F. McDougall

Christmas is not in tinsel and lights and outward show. The secret lies in an inner glow. It’s lighting a fire inside the heart. Good will and joy a vital part. It’s higher thought and a greater plan. It’s glorious dream in the soul of man. Wilfred A. Peterson, The Art of Living

“The giving of gifts is not something man invented. God started the giving spree when He gave a gift beyond words, the unspeakable gift of His Son.”
Robert Flatt 

“Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life.”
Corrie Ten Boom

“The story of Christmas is the story of God’s relentless love for us.” Max Lucado

Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer is the gift that keeps on giving. Anon

Indian Prophecy

 

refer to caption

As a young girl I was always interested in the Native American Indian Tribes. Living in the state of Utah at the time, I knew there were a few tribes in Utah and the surrounding states, to include Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. The 2 main tribes that most people were aware of and/or knowledgeable of were the Hopi and Navajo Tribes. They reside in an area called the ‘4 corners’. This is where the corners of the four states all come together.

In the news lately there has been a lot of hullabaloo (fuss) regarding the state of Arizona and the elections. A question in the minds of many might be ‘why’?

From my small amount of political research – so far, it has been pointed out that the land in Arizona is rich in mineral rights etc. and the Indian Tribes have ownership of much of the land. Apparently the present governing party wants that land which, if they could get it, would put them in a position to extricate a whole nation of Gods chosen people. This, of course would fall in line with the desire of the present governing leaders to continue their quest to depopulate the world.

In my research, I came across a website that I thought was very interesting and informative regarding the HOPI INDIAN traditions, their beliefs and their ongoing fight with the governing bodies to keep their land.

I am sharing that link for those of my readers who might be interested in a small piece of the history of a people who lived in the past and are living, as well, in the present, and how it is linked with the present history in the making.

I do not recall this history being in any of the history books in my generation. Will it be in the history books of the future?

Happy Thanksgiving

I am out of town with limited internet service. I hope this goes through…so on a lighter note here goes.

‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving and I just couldn’t sleep
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep
The leftovers beckoned, the dark meat and white
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
‘Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating up to the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But I managed to yell, as I soared through the trees
“Happy eating to all, pass the cranberries, please.”
May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes ‘n’ gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize.
May your Thanksgiving Dinner Stay Off of Your Thighs!
[Anonymous]

With thanks to a dear friend with a wonderful sense of humor.

WISHING EVERYONE A GREAT AND BLESSED DAY!!!!

Eczema and…

 

Eczema on hand and wrist

other skin conditions.

What causes skin conditions to include, ECZEMA, dry skin, psoriasis, scleroderma, pimples, rashes, dermatitis and skin cancer – the most toxic and parasitically involved of all the skin conditions?

Your skin is the largest vital organ you have. Its job is to control body temperature, protect and eliminate. It is sometimes referred to as your “third kidney.” Are you aware that your skin is suppose to eliminate each day as much as your lungs, kidneys and bowels do in the form of mucus, toxins, and gases.  The skin eliminates through sweat.

When the skin gets congested and/or inflamed it is usually the by-product of the foods you eat, thereby causing most of the above mentioned skin conditions or problems experienced by many in todays world. When asked what can be done to eliminate any of these problems, my standard answer has to be CHANGE YOUR DIET. You are what you eat. DETOX, DETOX, DETOX.

I mentioned ‘parasitical’. What does that mean?  Parasites are scavengers and are found where there is toxicity and dead or dying cells, in the layers of the skin and on the top of the skin. Most allopathic doctors will treat skin conditions with  cortisone or steroids in the form of medication and or ointments and lotions etc. These only drive the parasites deeper into the tissue which blocks the proper elimination from the system.

Toxins/acids backed up in the eliminative organs of the body and the skin can be the cause of most common skin problems. Organs involved other than the skin include the liver, lymphatic system, kidneys and bowels and thyroid. Detoxification is a must.

HOW TO DETOX?

There is no quick fix detox sold in a box or a bottle in the store or on Amazon. It took time to cause the problem and it is going to take time to fix the problem. You must fix the chemical balance in the body which should be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. The following program, adhered to, will get you back on the highway to health.

DIET – the foods which should be avoided include dairy products and sugar for starters. They cause heavy congestion within the tissues of the body. You also need to avoid coffee – as caffeine is highly acidic. Alcohol, smoking, over-the-counter drugs, and prescription drugs (as are able) are all acidic.

DETOX PLAN – to Alkalize the body (2-3 weeks) 

  1. FAST – Lemon Juice Fast. Do for 1-2 days. DO NOT EAT ANY OTHER FOODS.
  2. BASIC MENU FOR 2-3 WEEKS: Do 7 days a week.
    * BREAKFAST: Any combination of fruits you like – or Melons. However, if you choose melons do not mix with any other fruit.
    *SNACK: Any dried or fresh fruit, or freshly juiced vegetable or fruit juice.
    *LUNCH: Any fresh fruit you like. Buy what is in season in your area. Avoid (for now) pineapple and cranberry – because of their tendency to be acidic.
    *SNACK: Any dried or fresh fruit, or freshly juiced vegetable or fruit juice. Or Smoothie made with fresh vegetables and/or fruits.
    *DINNER: Large raw vegetable salad. Do not use iceberg lettuce as it constipates. You can put anything in it you like. Use Balsamic Vinegar dressing or just sprinkle it with fresh lemon juice and light extra virgin olive oil. OR you can have a small dish of Vegetable Soup (no tomatoes because of acidity). MAKE IT YOURSELF. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

LEMON JUICE – FOR FAST
2 tbsp. Lemon or Lime juice (fresh squeezed)
1/2 to 3/4 tbsp. Real Maple syrup or honey
One 8-10 oz.  glass of cold or warm water
(Optional – a pinch of Cayenne Pepper)

Combine the ingredients. Do not use canned, bottled or frozen lemon or lime juice. The Cayenne Pepper adds an additional increase of vitamin C and B-Complex, as well as an additional lift. You might want to make this a quart or a gallon at a time because you will be drinking it all day. You may drink as much as you want and as often as you want. Remember to only drink this and eat no other foods or drinks. It is an easy 1-2 day fast. 

  1. Drink 1-8 oz. glass of water before you eat and after you eat, but not as you eat. You can drink water anytime during the day, just not at the same time as you eat – because it dilutes the natural digestive juices which you don’t want to do.
  2. DO NOT EAT ANY MEAT, DAIRY, PASTA OR BREAD PRODUCTS!
  3. DISCONTINUE THE USE OF COFFEE, TEA, ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, AND OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS, IF THEY APPLY. You can keep taking any prescription medications as needed until you don’t need them any more per your doctor’s okay.
  4. You may experience weakness – so GET PLENTY OF REST. The detoxification has begun.
  5. Exercise only mildly or not at all during the DETOX PERIOD. Walking is okay. Let your body dictate what you can and cannot do.

SUMMARY
For Eczema and most adverse skin conditions – YOU NEED TO ELIMINATE, SWEAT. Perspiration increases the elimination of toxins. Lotions block the pores making the skin dry. The health of your skin is an internal issue not an external one. If you are going to feed the skin externally use pure raw grape seed oil or olive oil 

Skin problems can also be a Thyroid issue. The Thyroid and Liver are related to the skin. When you have a weak Thyroid it becomes more difficult to sweat, inhibiting proper elimination through the skin even more.  A breakdown of the skins normal function will result in Eczema, skin rashes, dry skin, psoriasis, etc.

The raw food diet above is highly cleansing and strengthening to the Liver and Skin. Raw fruits and vegetables ALKALIZE AND ALSO  ENHANCE the function of your Thyroid gland and increase body heat and elimination through your skin by sweating. 

HERBAL FORMULAS needed for Detoxing and Continued Strengthening include: LYMPHATIC SYSTEM; LIVER/SKIN; GI BROOM; THYROID SUPPORT; BLOOD CIRCULATION and PARASITE M CAPSULES. These formulas include all the natural herbs needed to restore and maintain healthy skin. 

NOTE: If you wish to purchase – these Dr. Morse’s formulas can be bought at the following link. For usage, follow the directions on the bottle.

I hope this blog has been helpful for you who suffer from the various skin ailments mentioned. Remember THE FOOD CHOICES YOU MAKE AFFECT EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE!

GOD BLESS!

Gray Hair

Why Gray Hair? 

This is a question I was asked as a hair dresser, by most of my clients. It is common to hear  “everyone gets gray hair as they age.”  However, what about those people who experience premature gray hair; as did a friend of mine who managed a Beauty College. He told me that his hair turned gray when he was 16 years old.

What is Hair?
Hair
– medically speaking “is a keratinized threadlike outgrowth which forms the fur of animals , or which grows on the human body.”

Just as the rings in a tree trunk hold information about past decades in the lifespan of a tree, our hair contains/holds information of our life style, our genetics, our health habits, and etc.

  • The most common cause of gray hair is aging. 
  • Genetics generally determines the timeline for the graying of hair, how it looks, how it behaves, whether it is curly or straight, thin or thick, etc.
  • Nutrient Deficiency can as well be the cause of hair graying, as it is the cause of many common health problems or issues.
  • There is not a lot of fully backed research on how or why smoking might be a direct cause of graying hair.
  • Autoimmune disease is another cause of hair turning gray – as the diseases that cause poor health attack the pigment cells affecting the Melanin which controls the color of not only hair, but skin. Hypothyroidism is one of the autoimmune diseases that affect the change in hair color.

This is a small list, without going into a lot of detail.

CAN THE HAIR GOING GRAY BE SLOWED DOWN? AS WELL, CAN IT BE REVERSED?

  1. You can’t stop aging but you can slow down the look of aging whether it is your body, the wrinkles on your face or the turning of your hair gray. EAT THE RIGHT FOODS. Feed your hair the nutrients it needs. This does work as I have seen the results in clients. It requires a change in one’s eating habits with the addition of vitamin and herbal supplements. The graying did slow down – and in a couple of cases the hair color reversed from the gray back to the natural hair color.
  2. New scientific findings report that Radiation or exposure to radiation in your home via microwave ovens, computers, cell phones or a workplace where you may be exposed to any type of radiation may, as well  accelerate hair graying. The best thing would be to not use microwave ovens, or computers, cell phones etc., but that is not feasible with todays lifestyles. You may want to look into all the new gadgets on the market that claim to reduce radiation exposure and in some cases get rid of it completely.
  3. Stop Smoking. While science is in the process of proving that smoking can increase your risk of going gray early, you can reverse some of the damage by NOT SMOKING.
  4. Hypothyroidism is a hormonal problem and is in the autoimmune disease category. There is a range of remedies for treating hypothyroidism which may help to reduce hair color change. Discuss this with your doctor and do your own research for this, and other autoimmune diseases.
  5. The list goes on and on, however, as a last resort and the REMEDY most people use is COLOR – permanent, which lasts for about a month and then needs retouching at the roots; or semi-permanent which washes out with each hair washing. If coloring is your choice, keep in mind that gray hair is not as porous and the color may or may not take as you expect it to. Also, any prescription medications one is taking may or may not interfere with how well the color takes on the gray hair.

This information is just a foot in the door to answering the question of WHY GRAY HAIR.

I reiterate – DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH to learn more on this subject. Everyone’s body is chemically different. Therefore the experience of graying hair will not be the same for everyone. This is not a ‘one size fits all’ situation.

As with all issues pertaining to the body  whether it be an illness, a disease, or even the graying of hair, clean out the body. DETOX to get rid of toxins that might be causing or accelerating the problem so you can start with a clean slate.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

God is Simple

 

Since Adam and Eve were sent out into the cold and dreary world where Lucifer was in charge, people have been in contention with one another. Today is no different. In fact, some would say it is worse. However, it needn’t be that way.

The solution is simple God is in charge. It can be found in the Book of Chronicles in the bible.

When King David wanted to build God a house, God said He was not looking for a palace or a house; all He has ever wanted is a dwelling place in the hearts of those who long for Him…that is where He seeks to rule as King, that is His resting place.

As long as we live God’s gospel principles and keep God’s commandments we will receive blessings galore.

Jesus taught over and over in the bible – ‘Love the Lord with all of your heart, might, mind and soul. Do unto others as you would have other do unto you. And last but not least, Love thy neighbor as thyself.’

This way of life is encompassed in the belief of all religious sects. It is just a matter of doing and accepting. 

Repentance for our sins must be a continued practice as none of us are perfect. It involves truly believing in God the Eternal Father, believing in His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit (our comforter). 

Keep your THOUGHTS positive, because your thoughts become your WORDS
Keep your WORDS positive, because your words become your BEHAVIOR
Keep your BEHAVIOR positive because your behavior becomes your HABITS
Keep your HABITS positive because your habits become your VALUES
Keep your VALUES positive because your values become your DESTINY
>Mahatma Gandi>

GOD made it SIMPLE so everyone would be able to enjoy the LOVE, PEACE, and FAITH HE – our ETERNAL HEAVENLY FATHER IS WAITING TO GIVE EACH OF US WITH OPEN ARMS, and with NO STRINGS ATTACHED. 

Food/Supplement Tips

Food, food, food. What to eat and what not to eat. What is good for you and what is not. No matter what you say about food, there is always a controversy. Everyone has an opinion. I, as well have my opinion. The following information is to keep you abreast of the latest. It is up to you to decide what you like or what is good for you in the way of your health.

COCONUT MILK – Coconut milk is among the many plant-based dairy alternatives available in the market. According to the Health Ranger, organic coconut milk “is one of the healthiest and most delicious. It is low in carbs, but high in MCTs, protein, iron and electrolytes such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. This healthy beverage can support your healthy digestive, immune, cardiovascular and nervous functions, as well as help maintain healthy energy levels. Plus, its delicious creamy flavor goes well with soups, stews, coffee and so much more. Coconut milk can even be gently dried and turned into powder to prolong its shelf life.”

There are many opinions out there regarding plant-based dairy milks. Other milks available, include Almond, Rice, Soy, Cashew and mixtures. I prefer the plant-based milks. After doing your own research, weigh the benefits and then draw your own conclusions as to your preference.

MAGNESIUM – as you age the body needs more magnesium to function normally. Magnesium is a supplement being pushed today, especially because of the adverse effects of the flu injections which deplete the body of the vitamins and minerals etc. needed to maintain a healthy immune system. This forces even the healthy folks to turn to supplements to detox the body system and replace the nutrition lost. Magnesium is much needed for a healthy heart, mind, mood and more. It plays a role in every heartbeat, maintains vascular function and already-healthy blood pressure, supports healthy bone density, and promotes healthy nervous system function.

CASTOR OIL – What is castor oil? Castor oil has been around for centuries. It is a substance obtained from castor beans. It contains natural ingredients that truly are superior…making it useful in many personal care products. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is an oil that you may find hanging around in your medicine cabinet and you really don’t know what to do with it.  The following are things you might consider:

  • Hair – it can enhance the look and feel of your hair, making it look both thicker and richer. After you shower – towel dry your hair, apply a small amount of slightly warmed castor oil, work it into the stands of your hair – it will lock in the moisture.
  • Skin – massage into your face gently. After 10 minutes, wash your face with a warm cloth. it will help remove excess oil, dirt and other pore-clogging material.
  • Fungal skin conditions – to include athlete’s foot or ringworm. Because of castor oil being rich in a biochemical known as undecylenic acid it helps target fungal growth.
  • Stretch marks – massage into the desired area and wrap with a cotton cloth. Allow the oil to penetrate the skin for 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat on a regular basis.
  • Scars – reduces scars from chickenpox or acne by promoting new skin cell growth. Apply before bed. Leave on overnight and wash it off the next morning.
  • Use as a massage oil. Used on the scalp – helps balance scalp pH, replenishing natural oils and promoting positive hair health as well as hair growth
  • Soothe bug bites and stings. Reduces itching.
  • Lines and wrinkles – stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. Also targets dark bags and the appearance of crow’s feet.
  • Oil Pull – put a tablespoon in the mouth and swish around in the mouth for at least 10 minutes. It will pull the bacteria from the gums and clean the teeth. Spit out and rinse with clean warm water.

CANTALOUPE – Humans are really frugivores. Therefore, fruits are a must in the daily diet. I concentrate on fruits, berries, melons, and black grapes. Watermelon is usually the melon of choice for most people, but others include, Casaba, Honey Dew, and Cantaloupe. The perfect summer fruit – Cantaloupe is a semisweet treat that will keep you cool in the heat. One cup of fresh chopped cantaloupe has just 54 calories, is packed with fiber, has important electrolytes like potassium that helps to keep you hydrated. The antioxidants in cantaloupe helps fight inflammation and reduces the risk of developing chronic diseases like arthritis, heart disease, and Type 2 Diabetes. It is rich in vitamin A and C, offers skin benefits by boosting collagen production. It is also a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin that supports healthy vision. Can be eaten on it’s own or mixed into a fruit salad, juiced, blended into smoothies, or added to summer soups.

 

That’s all for today folks. As always, do your own research. Health is Wealth!!
