Blood Pressure

What Is In The Number...Blood Pressure - Searchlight ...With the talk about the CO-19 jab being the culprit that is causing heart issues among the younger generation, I have had requests for a blog on blood pressure. I remember when the norm was 120/80. A few years back it was determined that it should be lower than that. Young people might have a lower reading, which is acceptable unless there is a disease associated with it. Fifty years ago, if you had a blood pressure reading of 115/60 or in that vicinity you were considered to be anemic. Apparently not so today.


According to the American Heart Association, Blood pressure is the force of blood against the artery walls. It rises during heartbeats and falls in between heartbeats. There are always two pressures expressed in blood pressure ranges, the systolic blood pressure and the diastolic blood pressure.

The following chart put out by the American Heart Association shows what they consider normal.

Healthy and unhealthy blood pressure ranges:

BLOOD PRESSURE CATEGORY SYSTOLIC mm Hg (upper number) and/or DIASTOLIC mm Hg (lower number)
ELEVATED 120 – 129 and LESS THAN 80
HYPERTENSIVE CRISIS (consult your doctor immediately) HIGHER THAN 180 and/or HIGHER THAN 120

This chart was originally put out in 2017, but is said to still be the norm today in 2021.

My doctor tells  me that the original pressure, 120/80, is closer to everybody’s normal today. It is the extenuating circumstances associated with health issues that cause blood pressure to be higher or lower than the norm.

I worked for a doctor at one time, so when my mother was having health issues I would go to her house and take her blood pressure reading. It was literally through the roof. She was being treated for heart problems, but little known to her family she also had kidney problems. When I say ‘through the roof’, her reading was always Systolic at over 250 and Diastolic at over 150. This scared me. When I told her this was a problem, it appeared she had no idea of what I was talking about or how this was affecting her life. She would just point to the 10 or more bottles of medications sitting on the table and tell me the doctor had it all under control. She was scheduled to see the doctor once a week. What could I do? Nothing. She was under a doctors care and that was all I was suppose to know. This was back in the early 1970’s.

Not being a doctor I can’t say why a friend or relative has high blood pressure. I hear the excuse of “well my mom, dad, aunt, uncle had high blood pressure so it is genetic, and I will probably die from it like they did.” What they don’t know is the cause of a distant relative’s heart issues and/or anything about any other health issues they might have had. So genetics cannot always be the answer.

I had moved to Florida when my mom ended up having open heart surgery. She told me on the phone after the surgery that she ‘now felt better than ever.’ It was only a few days after I talked to her that she died. According to one of my sisters the doctor told her that the surgery was a success but, he figured our mother died because she had only 3/4 of one her two kidneys  that was functioning.  With the doctor knowing this, my question is why did the doctor want to perform open heart surgery on her?  He had to have known that even though the surgery could be successful, because of the kidney issue her chance of dying was a definite. What I didn’t know at the time was that my mother had insisted on having the surgery, and the doctor complied. I didn’t know whether she was being treated for the kidney problems. However, I still had a lot of questions that never got answered. Needless to say my sister said she never got a medical bill from the doctor for his services….??????????? Doctors during that period of time were deep into not wanting to be sued for malpractice.

So folks, what can I say. Her story seems to say a lot. Heart issues and especially blood pressure can be caused by other health issues that your body is experiencing. And you can specifically add STRESS and TRAUMA to the list of issues.

Stress-Trauma, in regards to the (virus/jab) of the supposed pandemic putting FEAR into the life of everyone on the planet today, is definitely a breeding ground for every health problem you can imagine. The irony of the whole thing is that the doctors deliberately overlook the connection. So when you go to the doctor/hospital etc. you are told they don’t know what is wrong with you and send you home with prescription meds and/or tell you to watch what you eat. This is what my clients are telling me. 

So…………what can you eat or drink that is natural for eliminating ‘high blood pressure’?

If it was me and being a detox specialist, I would start from the beginning, detox….eliminate the acidic condition the whole body is in. An acidic condition is caused by poor eating/drinking, chemical accumulation, and other habits that people have had all of their lives. I would address all glandular and organ weaknesses using herbs to move and clean those weaknesses be they lymphatic, GI tract, Lung, Kidneys, Liver, etc. As well, because the CO-19 is a parasite – not a virus,  I would take something to clean the parasites from my system.

With HIGH or LOW blood pressure there is definitely adrenal gland weakness. One also needs to move the lymph system – your sewer system. Your lymph nodes are your septic tank. Keep them cleaned out. Use an herbal formula for the KIDNEYS – eat lots of fruit. Raw foods will cleanse the GI tract and restore the intestinal system. AVOID LAXATIVES.  Exercise. Clean the liver, enhance the pancreas. If prescription medications are being taken, don’t worry – there are very few possible interactions. (Consult your healthcare Practitioner).

If you are on high blood pressure medications, do watch your blood pressure. A good program can help bring down your blood pressure.  Use common sense. You can normalize your blood pressure by enhancing and regenerating your adrenal glands. Watch your blood sugars as if you were diabetic. This also applies to high blood pressure. Monitor it on a daily basis. You will go through what is called a ‘healing crisis’ as you detoxify. This is normal, natural, and positive.” (Source – Robert Morse, N.D.)

FOODS and Supplements that help lower high blood pressure –

Magnesium and potassium are two minerals that aid in the fight against blood pressure.  Baked potatoes are rich in both minerals. Lower your salt intake.

To lower your blood pressure, try to eat according to the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet (similar to a Mediterranean diet). vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, essential fats and lean proteins. Berries, especially blueberries, are rich in natural compounds called flavonoids. One study found that consuming these compounds might prevent hypertension and help lower blood pressure. Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are easy to add to your diet.

“In the United States, our health system is really disease management and not health promotion.” (Benjamin Perkins)

An international group of vaccine experts, including officials from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization (WHO), said that there is no evidence to suggest that the general population needs COVID-19 vaccine booster shots. (The Epoch Times) This is not what they were saying a month ago when they were saying you need it. 

The authors warned that if booster shots are introduced too soon, they may cause more side effects in the general population, including myocarditis or Guillain-Barre syndrome. (Epoch Times)  Because of my own research I do believe this statement to be true.

“Oh what tangled lives we lead when we practice to deceive.” You’ve heard this old saying, and, it is soooo true.

Is this not what is happening throughout the whole world today?  The CDC, FDA, WHO say one thing one minute and the total opposite the next minute regarding the same subject. 

You have to do your own research in order to make the correct decision for yourself and your health. 

The following video tells the true story with written facts and broadcasts which will help you put the pieces to the puzzle in order in this medical journey. I have permission to share.  I hope you are able to watch and listen to it.

Food vs. Supplements

It’s odd to me how until a health pandemic came along many people have taken their health for granted.

Elite Nutrition and Performance Sports Nutrition Youth ...

God knew what He was doing when He created us. Every single part of the body is connected – and for a specific reason. The mind, the body, the gut, the heart, the kidneys, the liver, the adrenal system, the lymphatic system, the endocrine system, the blood, muscles, the tendons, and the list goes on and on. Today the topic of concern is the Immune system, and how well you sleep at night. It is important that these interconnected systems function optimally. This can only be done through “living mindfully, moving purposefully and eating thoughtfully to ensure you’re nourishing your body from head to toe.” (quote – Life Extension magazine)

I do health research on a daily basis. In this blog, I would like to share some of the information I have found, that I think would be helpful for everyone, to figure out what it is each of you needs to maintain your body and your health to the best of your ability for your specific health circumstances. 

Taking Food Supplements on Daily Basis - Good or Bad ...

Since the time of Adam and Eve, FOOD, using the term by God as the herbs of the field’ was given them to eat to maintain their body’s. Food has come a long way since then. With much of the natural organic nutrients diminished because of the way food is grown and taken care of today, it has become necessary to add dietary supplements in addition to eating just food. Luckily both help to nourish the body with daily doses of everything needed in order for people to stay well. However, adding supplements can be tricky, unless you have done your own research, and know/understand what supplements you need to take. What is good and needed for one – is not always the same for everyone, because each of you are unique in your body’s chemical makeup. Just something to remember.


As mentioned above the IMMUNE SYSTEM is a stellar part of the body, and today with ill health running rampant as the result of chemicals we are being told to put into our body’s, that can be dangerous, we need to know how to counteract those chemicals. Here are some of the supplements had in foods that are the same as in supplements that are needed to build and maintain a healthy Immune System: Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin C, Quercetin.

BRAIN: With the strange chemicals being stuck into the body affecting the BRAIN – supplements are needed for BRAIN SUPPORT. They include: Melatonin which promotes optimal sleep, supports the circadian rhythm, cellular and DNA health: Magnesium for cognition and brain cell signaling, maintaining crucial synaptic connections between brain cells; Cortisol for stress, and there are others. Do the research.

HEART – the heart is being affected, especially among the young males who have no heart issues. What supplements can be taken here? You may find that supplements that are good for one thing are also good for other things – so there will be repetitions starting with: Magnesium – helps maintain vascular function and already-healthy blood pressure, supports bone density and nervous system function: Omega-3, be sure it comes from a good source such as wild caught salmon, sardines, and flax seed; CoQ10 to promote other high-energy organs in addition to the heart such as the liver, and kidneys; Quercetin. Many of you probably have never heard of this supplement, but it promotes endothelial health and immune response. It is a phytonutrient which fights oxidative stress and supports a healthy inflammatory response; Not last and not lease – did you know that Pomegranate, both the fruit and supplements supports the lining of arteries and veins, endothelial cell health and function, and encourages antioxidant production. 

BONES, JOINTS, MUSCLES – The body is full of these and they need maintenance as well. This can be done with: Calcium Citrate which needs Vitamin D to help it to work. This supports bone health/density and maintains blood vessel contraction and expansion. Boron – for healthy bone growth and mineralization, hormone activity, and healthy cell division. PLANT PROTEIN – in my opinion better than animal protein, supports lean muscle mass, satiety and liver function. Glucosamine in sulfate form for knee comfort, joint health and cartilage mobility. Vitamin K2 – slows bone loss, reduces fracture risk, increases bone density, and builds new bone.

VISION – Minimally, on our list of need to take care of things, until you can’t see. There are many products out there that support eye health from macular degeneration to glaucoma. They include supplements such as – Mirtogenol for eye pressure; Saffron, Astaxanthin, zeaxanthin, black currant for macular density, visual sharpness vascular health within the eye. Astaxanthin also optimizes joint, immune, brain cardiovascular, DNA and mitochondrial health. Tip: According to Life Extension scientists, your brain and your eyes are literally connected. They even share the same address (your head)! But for decades, the nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin have been thought of only in terms of their benefits for vision. That’s all changing – as it turns out, these plant-derived nutrients are good for your brain as well. 

All of the body systems need support to include the thyroid, nerves, bladder, liver, GI tract etc. The above listed can at least get you started on the road to regaining your health and building your immune system during a time when many of you might be subject to losing it. 

Remember – DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH. I am only here as a guide to get you going in the right direction for your particular needs.


Health Tips Update


Stones And Rocks PNG Image - PurePNG | Free transparent ...

I am between a rock and a hard place – as my dad used to say. I am being asked many questions pertaining to C-19. They include e.g. “Can anything be done to counteract the effect of the ‘S’ if I’ve already had it and don’t want to do the 2nd one?” “Can you send me or email me a C-19 Vx Detox?” “What can I do if I do not want to take a ‘2nd and continued booster ‘S’?” The list goes on.

My research on this subject has never ended since this all started in 2019.  I am not here to tell you what to do, only to hopefully answer your questions and inspire you to do more research on your own. 

The last few weeks I’ve watched videos, listened to podcasts, and read scientific info on the C-19, Vx, regarding the effect of both on many people’s lives. Bottom line? If you have a compromised immune system, this (C-19) or any illness including the common cold can be catastrophic. The media has blown the whole pandemic out of proportion, to the point of making people sick when ordinarily they wouldn’t be. It is called FEAR which equals stress – which equals mental disorders, which equals depression, which equals extreme illness – which can equal death. I think you get the picture. 

My question is – WHY are people allowing the media and political powers that be, to take control of their lives and health? Are folks so caught up in wanting to live a normal, as they used to know it, life, that they will believe and/or do anything they are told.  Can they not think for themselves? Are they so engrossed in the complacency of the past that they have no idea of, or don’t care, what the future holds?  It boggles my mind. 

Returning to the questions.

The body can take a lot of abuse. Think back on what you have put your body through; yet you are still here, and are supposedly healthy. We’ve all been sick, but are we any sicker now than we’ve been in the past?

You’ve heard the quote: “As a man thinketh, so is he.” Apply that to yourself. Is this what is happening to you right now? You’ve been coerced, lied to, led astray by the media and science to the point that you are in total FEAR.  Did you fear when you were told you had diabetes, heart issues,  arthritis, cancer, or lung disease? I venture to say NO. You treated these issues per your doctor’s orders or via self healing methods. 

The immune system has been known to be vulnerable, for centuries. When it is healthy it will allow us to live long lives.


Medically speaking, what does ‘system’ mean?  System (a composite whole) is an organized grouping of related structures, or organs in the body related to each other. They act together in the performance of certain functions e.g. digestive system, nervous system, circulatory system, lymphatic system, reproductive system, etc., and last but not least ‘immune’ system. What does medical ‘immune‘ mean?  Generally speaking ‘immune’ means safe – medically that extends to protected or exemption from a disease. Immunity is a state of being immune or protected from disease. Types of immunity include: acquired (from outside sources); active – resulting from the development within the body of substances which render a person immune; natural, a more or less permanent immunity to disease with which an individual is born, the result of natural inherent factors. It may be due to the natural presence of immune bodies, but other factors such as diet, differences in metabolism or temperature, or adaptive features of infective organisms may be involved; passive – produced by actual injection of a sera containing the antibodies into the subject to be protected. An immunization is the process of rendering a person immune. Does this have anything to do with AUTOIMMUNE  or autoimmune disease?  “With the Greek autos meaning self + immunis, safe, you have a disease in which the body produces disordered immunological response against itself“- according to Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary. “Normally, the body’ s immune mechanisms are able to distinguish clearly between what is a normal substance and what is foreign. In autoimmune disease this system becomes defective and produces antibodies against normal parts of the body to such an extent as to cause tissue injury.” Certain diseases, therefore, considered to be autoimmune diseases, as we know them in layman’s terms include, anemia, arthritis, asthma, blood, heart, and lung, to name a few. So what does this have to do with C-19. The CDC told the whole world that C-19 is a virus. However, have you noticed that now they are calling it a disease? 

How have ‘diseases’ been treated in the past? To cut to the chase – by inoculation/injection, whatever you want to call it today. 

What is an injection? It is the forcing of a fluid into a vessel or cavity or – as in the case of C-19, the ‘muscle’, or under the skin. Inoculation is the process of being injected for the purpose of introducing a microorganism, serums, or toxic material into the body, supposedly to immunize or make ‘safe’ the disease. 

From the questions I’ve been asked and discussions I’ve had with folks who’ve had the ‘J..’, there have, in some instances, been issues involving the health, state of mind, nervous system, heart, etc. of the person. This is causing folks to avoid more ‘J…’ or to avoid any ‘J..’ at all. 

After seeing the results of the ‘J..’, many in the medical field believe that the IMMUNE SYSTEM needs to be protected, renewed, refurbished, however you want to say it, and then be maintained. Our immune systems have been compromised for years. E.g. smallpox, measles, chickenpox, tetanus, and/or many other diseases/shots that have been had through the years. Tonsils removal, a tooth pulled? Your immune system has been compromised. The question is ‘what do we do about it’?

There are videos, podcasts, reading materials on health out there regarding ‘what to do about it’. In answer to the questions above, the conclusion = DETOX, DETOX, DETOX; get rid of the SAD (Standard American Diet) by changing your eating habits, exercise, and I add, enjoy life with your family, renew/strengthen your belief in GOD and get back to living life. 

The mainstream media is not going to tell you to do this. Neither will many of the doctors. Why? Control, money and power!

The following suggestions from the experts might help answer your questions depending on each individual’s situation. take before, during and after the ‘J..’

  • Vitamin D3 – Vitamin D is a binding protein. It is needed to fight all autoimmune diseases. The experts are saying to start with 5000 (IU) up to 9600 IU per day. 
  • K2 – helps with calcium levels. 
  • Omega 3 (DHA)- for the brain. Both the C-19 and the ‘J..’ affects the brain, destroying it to the point of dementia. 
  • B12 (methyl folate) – for all the symptoms of the C-19 and the ‘J..’. Symptoms include: fatigue, nerve damage, dizziness, depression, loss of sense of touch.
  • Resveratrol – for blood vessel health
  • Zinc – 30-40 mg/day.  Zinc, a nutrient found throughout the body helps the immune system and metabolism function. Zinc is also important to your sense of taste and smell. 
  • Vit C 500-1000 mg twice a day. 
  • Quercetin 250 mg/day
  • Melatonin 6-10 mg before bedtime (causes drowsiness)
  • Keep the body alkalized. The percentage should be 80% alkaline, 20% acid. However, because of the SAD that percentage is just the reverse. The SAD is the cause of the break down of the immune system. It induces inflammation.
  • Alkaline Foods: include watermelon, lemon juice (yes lemon juice is alkaline as is grapefruit); oranges are acidic in the citrus family. A lemon water fast is a good way to start a body detox. I suggest you go back in my blogs and find my DETOX DIET PLAN.  Additionally, keep your kidney’s, bladder, stomach  and bowels functioning normally. Drink  Aloe Vera Water…make your own. Aloe Vera cleans from the inside out getting rid of worms and parasites. Keep your Lymphatic (sewer)system working. Stress shuts off the immune system and slows down the blood flow. 

PURCHASING PRODUCTS – Buy the best. There are many brands that have more fillers than product. You will not be getting what is claimed to be in the bottle. Check the serving size. E.g. the front of the bottle says 500 mg; the back says take 2 per day; do not think or assume that you are taking 1000 mg. The truth is 2 per day will give you 500 mg. not that there are 500 mg. in each tablet or capsule. 

WE ARE, IN CONTROL OF OUR FATE by what we put in our body and mouth. When the body is deficient in nutrients the body breaks down. the best way to get nutrients into our body. However, pestilence sprays, artificial fertilizers and genetical modification causes the nutrient values to be low. How foods are prepared also has an effect on the nutrient factor. It is impossible to get all of our nutrients from food – hence the need for supplementation.

Did you know that the people who manufacture the food products, and supplements that you buy are not responsible or liable if you get sick from them or the supplements don’t work. The supplement industry is not regulated like you are led to believe. They don’t always tell the truth. This makes everything a risk; there should be no risk.

BIG MARKETERS supply more than 1 manufacturer, therefore, many foreign countries are not always compliant with the regulations and standards put on food or supplements that they sell to the US. The 2 countries that I can name are China and India. Having been a small manufacturer myself of a supplement product, I had to research all of this, and know it to be true. The manufacturer is responsible for the truth of what is put into their products. PRICE…the manufacturer of brands can charge whatever they want. European products are non GMO – or so they say, but you would have a hard time proving that. 

How do you separate the good products from the bad. Pharma and Grocery store chains can’t afford law suits, so they do try to abide by the rules.

When eating foods and taking supplements, remember too much of a good thing can be detrimental via overdosing. Yes you can overdose on food and supplements. Too much of both causes toxicity. However,the body has its own way of protecting itself by way of the immune system.  Because of individual chemistry differences what may be good for one may not be good for all. Most people do not know how the body works and that’s what gets them into trouble. 

BUYING FOOD AND SUPPLEMENTS….find a brand of food or supplements that works for you. One that you like, can trust, and can stick with. These industries are, “wild, wild west industries.” They can say whatever they want to sell their products. If you are doing your own research you can go to They have great information. Food and supplements do have an affect on people’s health. 

In answer to the question regarding counteracting the ‘J..’ DON’T GET IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. You will not find a way to counteract it on any mainstream news, in media, or on TV. There are video’s, podcasts, seminar’s, and information on alternative channels. They include new private websites: Rumble, Telegram,,, etc. Books, e.g. ‘Supplements Revealed’ by Bryan Haycock. Do the research. 


  • Hydroxychloroquine (follow package/doctor’s instructions)
  • Ivermectin 0.2-0.4mg/kg per dose (take with or after meals) One dose daily, take for 5 days or until recovered. Consult your doctor.
  • Homemade Organic recipe: 3 peels of organic grapefruit, 3 peels of organic lemons. Put in water in a pan to cover 3 inches above the peels. Boil, then simmer for 3 hours. Let cool. Put in a Mason Jar. Take 2 Tablespoons 2 times a day. 
  • Sauna – sweat out the toxins.
  • Keep nasal passage clear – steam inhalation 3 times/day. Add Vapor Rub 

What has been suggested can help, but will not reverse the damage already done – the body is on Toxic Overload. 

I’m on overload with this blog.

Question Words…

How to Use Transition Words in Academic Writings ...are words,that when used, always end with a question mark (?).  These words are Who?, What?, Why?, When?, Where?, and How? They can be put in any order that you want to put them. They may be asked as needed pertaining to any issue They are all common sense words, and as questions, need common sense answers. 

My last blog was on ‘COPD’. I received a comment from someone who had COPD and also had had COVID, asking ‘WHY’ I did not make mention of ‘HOW’ COPD might be associated with COVID. Then someone else asked me if in my research I had found anything I could tell them to take or do that would help cure either or both diseases. 

With all the censoring that is going on, I have been cautioned by the powers that be, what I can and cannot say about any health issue. Many doctors and other professional people in the health field have already been banned from social media, You Tube, and other internet sources for speaking out and speaking the truth. So, it is with caution that I will proceed to answer the above questions. 

I have found that many research sources, especially Google and Wikipedia have made changes to the explanation of what, how, or why something may or may not be, to fit into their agenda of what they want us, the general public, to know. We are to remain questionless. I found no scientific sources that mentioned any way to cure either of the above mentioned illnesses. It was only mentioned that they are both killer diseases which could be managed (didn’t say how to manage them), or you could be made comfortable having, but you should be prepared to meet your maker sooner or later. 

I will be stepping over my bounds if I mention that the best way to start any healing process – which in both cases includes the already compromised ‘immune system’ – is to Detox first. Detoxing helps to rid the body of the toxins we have been abusing our bodies with for years. These toxins render our bodies very acidic. This can be remedied by using sources (supplements (vitamins) and/or herbal), and eating foods that will lower the acidity in your body so eventually your body can become alkaline based. The ratio should be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic. The body controls its own acidity without our eating things that ups the acid percentage.

Once you have this under control – you must maintain. As with any disease, and I don’t even have to mention names, a change of diet to healthier eating and drinking habits is the only way to go. It is a long and tedious process for many, depending on whether you have a mild, acute, or chronic condition of any disease you are battling, be it the heart, the lungs, the bones, the gut, etc. The body can regenerate in some instances, but in most in most cases only repair. The body part that has been compromised will never return to being in perfect condition.

You can add years to your life if this regeneration or repair is done by NATURAL MEANS. Chemical methods, via prescription medications, used by conventional doctors, the CDC, WHO, and big Pharma may add a few years, but in the process of supposedly healing one part or organ of the body, prescribed chemicals/ medications break down or destroy other parts of the body. Hence the need for continued chemical control. It could be said at this point, that you will have become addicted to drugs. I am not allowed to mention the ‘pin prick’ that has been used in the past and pushed between then and now, that has been attested to by many humans to have done more harm than good in handling health issues. When you feel that is the only way to go, consider yourself addicted to that method of drug use as well.

Draw your own conclusions folks. You must already be aware that big Pharma, and as of late everything, is all about control, power over the innocent God loving, and God fearing humans; and the billions of dollars that are ending up in the pockets of the powers that be. 

As always, this blog is for informational purposes only. You are, at least for a little while longer, free to choose for yourself the path you wish to take to stay healthy.

Free COPD Wellness Workshop Nov. 16 | Manchester Ink LinkWhat is COPD?

copd clipart 20 free Cliparts | Download images on ...

Many people are familiar with the term COPD because of what they see on TV and, because of seeing many walking among us with inhalers in their hands or with oxygen tanks strapped to their backs.

Pulmonary disease concerns or involves the lungs. The medical term for COPD is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. It all starts with the circulation of the blood. The Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary explains it as, “passage of blood from heart to lungs and back again for purification. The blood flows from the right cardiac ventricle through the lungs, there to be oxygenated; then back to the left cardiac atrium.” The word ‘obstructive’ is indicative of a blockage somewhere as the blood flows.

COPD has become prevalent in today’s society with the reasons being varied. I could make this a long drawn out blog, but feel it necessary not to. I will try to touch on what seems needed for the general public to have a better understanding of it.

Pictures of COPD's Effect on the Lungs

The COPD Foundation describes it “as an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.” I researched several sources and they all say pretty much the same thing. (Wikipedia, Mayo Clinic, COPD foundation and CDC)

General Overview

Symptoms – don’t usually appear until significant lung damage has already occurred, and often worsens over time. Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Shortness of breath,
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Chronic coughing which produces mucus, clear, white, yellow or greenish. All of the, so far, mentioned symptoms are indicative in people who typically may have been exposed long term to irritating gases or particulate matter most often related to cigarette smoking. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the two most common conditions and usually occur together, varying in severity with each individual. “Emphysema is a condition in which the alveoli at the end of the smallest air passages (bronchioles) of the lungs are destroyed. Chronic bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs.” Further symptoms include:
  • Frequent respiratory infections
  • Lack of energy
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Swelling in ankles, feet or legs

COPD can be experienced in “episodes called exacerbations, during which their symptoms become worse than the usual day-to-day variation and persist for at least several days.”

If you are experiencing any of the above it is imperative that you see your doctor.

It is apparent from all my sources that the main cause of COPD in developed countries is tobacco smoking, but can also occur in people who have been exposed to fumes from burning fuel for cooking, and, heating in poorly ventilated homes.

People with COPD risk developing heart disease, lung cancer and a variety of other conditions. I have friends who fit into this scenario perfectly  – they all have heart issues and have experienced some type of lung cancer.

How are your lungs affected? Air travels down your windpipe (trachea) and into your lungs through the large bronchial tubes. Inside the lungs these tubes divide like the branches of a tree into smaller tubes that end in clusters of tiny air sacs which have very thin walls full of tiny blood vessels. The oxygen in the air that you breathe passes into these blood vessels and enters your bloodstream. COPD causes these tubes to lose their elasticity and over-expand. This leave some air trapped in your lungs when you exhale. This airway obstruction ends up causing the emphysema and bronchitis.

You have determined by now that smoking is the biggest culprit, and you say ” I have friends who have smoked all their lives and are perfectly fine. Or “I have friends who have never smoked and they have COPD.” I understand. There are irritants other than smoking that can cause lung damage and COPD. They include: secondhand smoke (which I can attest to – having worked in an office where everyone in the room smoked, causing me to go home each night thinking I had breathed my last breath). To continue: pipe smoke, air pollution and workplace exposure to dust, smoke or deadly fumes. Genetic susceptibility to the disease may also be a factor, because as aforementioned, not all smokers develop COPD. The list can go on and on.

Complications – can arise to include:

  • respiratory infections. – colds, the flu and pneumonia.
  • heart problems – for reasons the doctors don’t even fully understand. However, you must remember, it is the lungs that control the heart.
  • lung cancer – already mentioned
  • high blood pressure in the lung arteries that brings the blood to your lungs
  • depression – difficulty breathing can keep you from your normal activities, evolving into depression.


How to Treat COPD

There is hope. I have a friend who has chronic COPD. She is on oxygen 24/7, but she never gives up. The good news is that there are ways to slow the progression of the disease. Since we now know it is directly related to cigarette smoking, the best way to prevent COPD is to never smoke or as they say  STOP – NOW.

As for COPD being caused by occupational hazards – mainly chemical fumes and dusts – you need to discuss with your boss or supervisor about protecting yourself from the exposure, such as using respiratory protective equipment. According to OSHA guidelines – this is the only time anyone needs to wear a mask.

Lastly talk to your doctor if you experience any of the above mentioned conditions, causes etc. Also, do your own research. COPD is a preventable disease as well as manageable. However, I couldn’t find anywhere that it is curable. My knowledge tells me that is because the lungs are not regrowable as are some of our body’s organs. As well, the lungs cannot be fully repaired.

This blog is for informational purposes only. I hope it helps you to understand COPD. Not a pretty picture or a fun disease to have to deal with, but then is any disease fun to deal with?


Misc…who knew?

“You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted.”

I just moved to a new area here in Florida, and that was an experience. When you are downsizing you find all the things you have that you don’t remember or know you have. Let me share some of those things with you.

  • HONEY POWDER: Yes – honey in powdered form. Not a bad thing. It is used like any powdered sweetener. Just sprinkle on your cereal, in your tea etc…or add water to liquify it again and use it as you would Honey.
  • WD40: I not only had it in small cans, I had a 1/2 gallon bottle of WD40. Did you know WD-40 stands for Water Displacement #40. This product was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. It began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. The 40 comes from it being the fortieth formulation. Ken East (one of the original founders) says “there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you…”it is made from fish oil.” What can it be used for? I have a list that has 43 uses for WD40. Here are just a few – to refresh your memory: removes paint; removes road tar and grime from cars; keeps flies off cows; removes lipstick stains; untangles jewelry chains; keeps glass or plastic shower doors free of water spots;camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors; lubricates just about everything; keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades and other tools; keeps pigeons off the balcony; removes all traces of duct tape; relieves arthritis pain; Florida’s favorite use: ‘cleans and removes Love Bugs from grills and bumpers’; attracts fish – just spray a little on live bait or lures; takes the sting away from fire ant bites; last on my list but not least – WD40 is good for any type of burns. It takes the burned feeling away and heals with no scarring.
  •  With all the talk of preparation, preparation, preparation, in case the worst thing happens in this chaotic world, of us being without food or electricity, water, etc. I ran across the directions for using a ‘Wonder or Clever or Hot Box Cooker.’ What is it and how is it made? Who knows? I Only have directions for cooking with it.
  • Always wondered what the difference is between http and https. Well I found an article I had saved on just that. In case you don’t know…”the main difference between http:// and https :// is it’s all about keeping you secure.” HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. The S (big surprise) stands for “Secure“. When you visit a website or web page, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the http:///; This means that  on your computer’s conversation with the website. the website is talking to your browser using the regular unsecured language. In other words, it is possible for someone to ‘eavesdrop’ – to see the information you are sending to that site. This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an http website. But, if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on. Bottom line:  YOU SHOULD NEVER ENTER SENSITIVE INFORMATION…such as a credit card number, SS#, etc. on an unsecure http site. To top it all off, I found many pages of SCAMS – email, phone, etc. put out by the Sheriff’s department…and my kids think I fall for all of those things. Apparently not, I have had these papers for a long time since 2011.

I have a half inch pile of things to share with you. But I will end here…for now.


Food and Gardening

View veggies.jpg Clipart - Free Nutrition and Healthy Food ... 

If food becomes scarce, as is being talked about, each and everyone of us needs to be prepared. Food storage has been encouraged for many years. But how many of you have adhered to the advice?

Food for storage, can be dehydrated, freeze dried etc. helping it to last many years before being consumed. In the meantime – for the present, before the government controls our ability to grow our own food, I suggest you start now to do just that. If you live in the city – the term used to grow food would be ‘urban farming’, otherwise you might be lucky enough to live in the rural areas, on a farm or a ranch. Since the majority of people live in the cities, I would like to start there with suggestions as to how to do ‘urban farming’. Here are some key factors:

  • Sun – the sun has to be ideal. Generally, you need to know which side of the house works best for the food you plant to grow. Here in Florida, I find that the south and east side of the house is best for me. Which foods do best in the sun, and which do best in the shade/semi-shade. 
  • Soil – you need to know the soil. Every state has different soil. Some are of clay, some rocky, some sandy, some lacking in nutrients, and with luck, some soils are rich in nutrients. You need to research your area to find out what the soil is like in your area  and what kind of soil would be best for you to use for what you are planting. I find that using ‘Potting Mix‘ and not ‘Potting Soil’ that comes in bags at the nursery or stores, is the best to use for growing plants and food in pots around your home – if you live in the city and do not have a large yard. ‘Potting Mix‘ usually already has natural fertilizers in it as well as mulch which helps to hold the water so the plants do not dry out. It also works well when you plant directly into the soil. Dig a huge hole and fill it with the Potting Mix before planting your plants and especially food. 
  • Hydroponic: this is growing plants, food, etc. in a base that may or may not be soil oriented. The water used here and for all types of growing should not be chlorinated water. The chlorine should be filtered out and the pH balanced. I was not aware of this until I did this research. Chlorinated water can cause thyroid issues in humans. Think of how it would affect plants. Yes they grow, but the nutrient value is stifled. The same goes for using water that has been softened. The salt which is used to soften water is not good for plants. The salt build up eventually kills the plant – be it flowers, bushes or seedling food plants. Also, softened water should be used sparingly as a drinking water consumption for humans and animals. The build up there can cause a variety of health issues, especially if you already have health issues or are diabetic. 
  • Tower Gardens – good for city living. Can be put on the roof of condominiums, in shared city garden spaces, or in small yards where space is minimal. If the top of a building is your only alternative, you need to find a way to provide some kind of shade on the rooftop as full sun all day, everyday, is detrimental to most plants. There are many sources for you to research in regards to “Tower Gardens.”
  • Seeds: Know where your seeds or plant sources are coming from Seeds should be organic or non-GMO, and I suggest non-Hybrid.  Plants that you purchase in Garden Spots like in Home Depot and Walmart are not likely to be non-GMO or non-Hybrid. A good old fashioned Nursery may be your best source to buy organic seeds and seedling food plants.  I found that most hybrid food sources, are, like it is said, ‘enhanced to be bigger and better,’ but they do not reproduce well – e.g tomato planGarfield Park | Chicago Community Gardeners Associationts die quickly after the tomatoes are picked. With organic, non-GMO and non-hybrid plants, you can cut the stems back and the plant will grow big again and give you crop after crop…depending on how many times you cut them back and the weather permits. 

This information is just a beginning. Know your sun schedule, know your soil, know your water, know your food source – seeds or seedling plant starts. Now do your homework, and apply it to your situation/lifestyle. Food grown by you, without artificial fertilizers and pesticides, always tastes better, and lasts longer in storage than the food most of us consume that is store bought. We have no idea how long the food we purchase in the grocery store has been enroute to get to the store, how long it has been stored in the warehouse, or how long it has been on the shelf, before we purchase, and consume it. And remember, this food has been sprayed with or had preservatives added to it so it will stay and look fresh when they do finally put it on the the shelf for us to buy.

A lot has been happening over the past few weeks making it difficult for me to stay current on my blogging. But, I am back – no I haven’t had the big “C” word that I am forbidden to mention or anything pertaining to it.

I like this anonymous quote:

“You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted.”

So true. The list can be long on what can make  a person unhappy. First on my list is a person’s HEALTH. The lungs are the main organs that keep you alive, keeps the heart beating. However, many folks choose to destroy their lungs by ‘smoking.’  Breathing contaminated air,and/or illness, such as pneumonia also affects the lungs.

The Most Common Ammonia-based Cleaning Products

Based on a new independent study of 20 years of research, it has been revealed that cleaning your home with common cleaning products can be added to the list of causing lung damage. Many of these products are well-known grocery store brands made with ammonia, chlorine bleach, quaternary disinfectant compounds and other dangerous chemicals. The study showed “that cleaning with these products as little as once a week was as damaging over time to respiratory health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years.” It also stated that women are affected far more than men, and that cleaning at home is just as harmful as being an occupational cleaner, because the damage is cumulative over time. Liquid cleaners are just as dangerous as sprays. I recently discovered that I am allergic to disinfectant sprays, which I hardly ever used but have done more frequently because of the big push since the pandemic.  Using them on a regular basis was making me feel disoriented and dizzy. I quit using them and the disorientation and dizziness went away.


Rid your home of all cleaning products that contain ammonia, quaternary  disinfectants, chlorine bleach, and any other dangerous chemicals. The product most involved are toilet cleaners, shower and tub cleaners, scrubs, stain removers, floor cleaners, degreasers, window and glass cleaners, and any all purpose cleaners.

This blog is for informational purposes only. It is up to you to decide what to do. In my opinion don’t continue to destroy your length of life by continuing to use any product, eat any foods, drink any drinks, etc. that will cause physical damage in any way to your body systems. LOVE YOUR LUNGS, THEY ARE KEEPING YOU ALIVE!

God knew what He was doing when He created us. It is man who is determined to destroy what God created.

Love to you all!
