Pharma to Educate the RD’s on Benefits of Artificial Hormones

Would you take advice from this person?

First here was Coca-Cola promoting Registered Dietitians.  Now pharmaceutical companies are joining in.  Talk about an unholy alliance.   Big Pharm and the Registered Dietitians teaming up to create a plan to con the public into believing that the artificial hormones and antibiotics being used in our meat products are actually good for us!

Not buying it….. Look at who sponsors them and for good reason.

Corporations like Coca-Cola, Unilever, General Mills and Pepsi sponsor the events for Registered Dietitians.   They are same group that are banning together to pass legislation state by state that prohibits individuals like myself (naturopaths, health coaches, and herbalists) from advising others on nutritional matters.  It’s incredible.  In a recent rebranding campaign they decided to change their website to eatright.org  and became the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly American Dietetics Association).   Putting lipstick on a pig does not make it attractive.  Like wise adding nutrition to their organizational name does not mean that they offer good advice.  Coca-Cola?  Pepsi?

In a victory for the people, Michigan recently removed the law that was passed by the Michigan Dietetics Association in 2007 but never implemented.  It was deemed unnecessary and too costly for something that has never been an issue.  To the MDA it was a huge issue as they wanted control – total control.  The first bill, as written, would have limited even chiropractors and medical doctors from giving advice as well.

On June 18, 2014, Elanco (pharmaceutical company that recently purchased Novartis Animal division) a division of Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals, offered a free webinar to dietitians to educate them on the future of farming.   It was titled “U.S. Farming 101″, and the session the company says, was meant to “Provide a foundational understanding of farming, with relevant information for nutrition professionals to share with consumers.”

Earlier in the year, Elanco threw its hat in the sustainable food ring with this report.  The message?  To fight for a food secure tomorrow that requires 60% more animal-sourced foods which is specifically meat, milk, and eggs.   How is it possible to do this?  Artificial hormones are one way.  These hormones cause the animal to increase in size and produce more muscle mass (meat).  But this is not good for the animal and it produces tainted meats.   Have you heard the saying  “You are what you eat eats”?

The information they shared with the dietitians was all part of a bigger plan to convince the public that the mutating of the genetic structure of our animals in order to create more “food” made it good.  Never mind the studies about rBGH growth hormone and the increases in IgE level that it creates in humans causing early puberty and increased risk of cancer.  But it was good because it increased the amount of milk the cow produced and extended the time period that the cow would have milk after giving birth to a calf.

Should we be concerned about maintaining enough food for all the people of the world.  Absolutely, but we must do it responsibly.  There are God given methods by which we should live.  He created the perfect method for optimum health.  It doesn’t include growth hormones and antibiotics.   These tactics will only injure the health of our species.    We have seen in the past that the goal of Big Pharma is to increase the bottom line.   Why else would dangerous drugs be allowed to remain on the marked with the inconsequential “Black Box” warning?  Think about it.  You still have the ability to chose.  Vote with your dollars by buying food that is produced responsibly.

Your life and those that will come after you depend on it.

 

 

Temple or Toxic Waste Dump?

junk-food-vs-healthy-food

 

As I walked through the parking lot into church on Sunday, I was struck by the number of  handicapped parking spaces in front of the entrance.  Maybe it drew my attention more on this day because the parking lot attendants had placed plastic barricades in front of normal parking spaces in order to create more handicapped spaces.  Granted, I attend a large church but I would estimate that on the lower level entrance there were at least 40 handicapped spaces.  In a church that has 2,000 – 3,000 people attending on a Sunday morning maybe this wouldn’t seem significant but even smaller churches still maintain 10 or more spaces.  Maybe they are used by the elderly to allow then closer access, but even that makes me think.  I remember my grandmother who went home to be with the Lord at the age of 97.  She was spry and alert until her last year when cancer overtook her body.  Her husband, my step grandfather, downhill skied until he was in his 90′s.  People marveled at them.  What was it that allowed them to enter into their golden years with such a sturdy level of health?  I believe there is an answer – and it applies to us today. We can live the same life with a little effort.

1.  WORK – My grandmother was born on a farm in Iowa.  She worked hard helping her father with all that was needed to maintain the house for herself, her brothers and her father.  My great grandmother died when my grandmother was very young.  Working hard keeps us fit both bodily and mentally.

Their work was outside so they were exposed to sunshine and clean air.  When we move our muscles they contract the lymphatic system and push toxins out.  Oxygen enters our blood and increases the pH while decreasing our acidity.  Being acidic makes us sick.

2.  GREW THEIR OWN FOOD – Growing up on a farm they had access to fresh eggs and meat from free range chickens, grass fed beef and more.  These meats would be high in nutrients not commonly found in factory farm animals of today.  They had a vegetable garden that was not sprayed with chemicals nor was it filled with hybridized and GMO seeds.  All of the food that they would need for the winter was canned and stored in a root cellar for the times when food was scarce.  They had no super Wal-marts to run to when they were low on supplies.  It took planning – on purpose to have good food to sustain their family.  It nourished them and they were blessed.

3.  COOKED FROM SCRATCH  -  All of their food was cooked and prepared from things that they grew as well as things their neighbors and family grew.  Life was a community where everyone helped each other.  They did not live isolated as we do now being tied to electronic devices for communication with faceless people.    Their breads were from stone ground grain (not hybridized) and hand baked.  It nourished their bodies and caused them to grow and develop into healthy young people who would go on to produce the next generation of healthy children.

4.  DRANK CLEAN WATER –  The water they drank came from wells they dug on their own land.  The land was not covered in toxic chemicals during farming.  It came from deep under grown where the earth worked as the natural filtration system that God intended.  No fluoride or other toxic cleaning chemicals or even pharmaceuticals that cannot be removed in the current city water system.  People are being medicated with things they don’t need from drinking city water.

5.  AVOIDED PHARMAKEIA / VACCINATIONS – My great grandparents immigrated to the United States before my grandmother was born.  They were independent people and dealt with health issues through natural methods.  I cannot remember my grandmother ever going to the doctor.  She was always healthy.  She was the one who cared for others.  She never took medications and was not vaccinated.  When you look at the average American and prescription medication intake,  a recent study shows:

- More than half of Americans take two prescription medications, and 20 percent of Americans are on at least five prescription medications. 
- The number of people taking prescription drugs has increased to 48 percent in 2007-2008, from 44 percent in 1999-2000. 
- Cholesterol-lowering drugs are prescribed to 11 percent of people in the study. 
- Vaccines are prescribed to 11 percent of people in the study. 
- Vaccines, anti-asthma drugs and antibiotics are the most common kinds of drugs prescribed to people younger than 19. 
- More women than men receive prescription medications. 
- Antidepressant prescriptions are more common among women than men, and are most common among women ages 50 to 64 (an age group in which nearly 25 percent of women take antidepressants).
(Taken from Huffington Post, 2013)


Prescription medications are out of control.  We cannot sustain poisoning our body with toxic chemicals.  These drugs work by blocking receptors and poisoning enzymes.  By taking these medications, we, as Christians, are saying to God, “You made a mistake in the function of my body and I need to override your design with a chemical”.   Is that what we believe?  If the answer is no, then why are we continuing to worship at the feet of the white coated gods who dole out chemical poisons to us?

6.  STRONG FAITH IN GOD - The people of my grandparents generation had a strong faith in God.  Their faith, Bible and church were at the center of their existence.   They spent their lives living out the commandments of God.   The faith showed them from whom they drew their strength and healing.  Medical doctors were not like they are today.  They came to your home when you were ill, black back in hand.   They were not armed with the Merck Manual, advanced nuclear medical equipment and a pharmacy of thousands of drugs at their disposal.  Common sense prevailed and so did natural remedies.

I love Dr Lorraine Day MD and what she has to say about what a physician / healer is.  She speaks with authority having been sick with cancer and experiencing Gods healing.   She shares with us this article,  “What does the Bible say about Doctors?

Christians today are looking for a quick fix to their health conditions.  They ask for prayer from other believers and then continue to do as they please expecting to be healed from a pill and a prayer.   I cannot tell you how many times people tell me that they cannot do a natural method because insurance won’t cover it.    People would rather take poison and have someone else pay for it than to get back to basics and follow God’s design for our body and our life.  It really is that simple.

Christians, we are called to be salt and light to the world.  We are to look different and act different.  Your body is the temple of God and you are to treat it that way.  If you were in charge of the physical Jewish temple would you throw trash into it, allow others to come in and trash it and the pray that somehow it would restore itself?   Of course you wouldn’t.  You would treat it with care.   Why do you think less of the body God gave you to care for?  Why do you allow yourself and your children to consume the garbage food and take the poison pills?

Imagine if all of the Christians were able to live an abundant life full of vitality.  Imagine if we all had so much energy that we could work our job and then give back easily.   Imagine if we were happy and our attitude was so different that others wondered why.    Imagine ……..

Instead Christain’s are overweight, undernourished, depressed, tired, angry and self centered.  Is this God’s design for the church?

These are supposed to be the fruits of the spirit we see in believers.

Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,  23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Instead the modern rotten fruits that prevail are……

Hate, unhappiness, anxiety, suffering, harshness, vengeance, unbelief,  self-centeredness,  and indulgence.

I am not kidding when I say that medications and lack of good food can cause these rotten fruits to appear.

At this point you are probably thinking that I am acting pretty condemning and that it isn’t nice to judge or point fingers.  After all that’s the mantra lately.    Don’t judge.

There was a time when I could have pointed the finger at myself.  Guess what this behavior got me?  Cancer, two surgeries, three rounds of radiation and 6 years of suffering that left me near death.  I can also add that no amount of drugs or crappy food fixed the issue.  As long as lived in rebellion to God’s rules I was dying…. and many of you are too.  You are not living.  I was so bad for so long that I had no idea what health felt like.  Now I do and I never want to go back.  I want this health for you and for your families.  That is why I am sharing this with you today.   In hopes that you are not one of the people who, one day, needs to park in the handicapped spot due to your rebellion.

Here are are some simple strategies to get you started:

1.  Real food - eat it, make it, play with it, cook it.
2.  Good fats - Fats are not the enemy when they are the good ones.  Your cell walls are comprised of fats.  Your brain is mostly fat.  Your hormones need fats.  Many vitamins are fat soluable (meaning they need fat to absorb into your body).  Low fat diets make you angry and hormonally imbalanced.   The good fats are butter (Kerry Gold my favorite), avocados, coconut oil and olive oil.
3.  Water – Drink clean filtered water.  Ditch the sodas.   Sodas add empty calories, make your body acidic and rob your bones of calcium and magnesium to buffer the acidity.  Water hydrates, cleanses and makes you younger.   Dehydration is the root of many “diseases”.

These three simple things can put you on the road to wellness.  Add some exercise like walking and your body will respond.  I promise.

3 John 1:2King James Version (KJV)
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

 

 

Illegals Bring Dangerous Disease to the U.S.

As the issue of more and more illegal aliens crossing the border from the south continues, the health concerns heat up as well.  Government is calling it a “humanitarian crisis”.   It is so much more than that.  It is a national danger to the health and lives of American citizens.  Immigrants who came to Ellis Island when our nation was young were subjected to specific procedures before being let into the country.  If they were sick they were forced to remain on Ellis Island until they were cleared.   Now the flood gates are open and anyone is allowed to come into our country with no control.  These people are being bussed and flown into cities all over the nation.    Reports of holding facilities having quarantine areas gives little comfort to the citizens of America.  We are in danger. Because of the danger I decided that I needed to write this blog to share the strategies you can take to protect yourself and your family or those you care about.  My goal is to empower you to take control for yourself so that you will not rely on a medical system that is letting us down on a regular basis.

These are the diseases we are facing right now due to the influx of sick illegal aliens.  For each disease I am providing a natural method that can be used to combat these diseases.  These are the best options in my opinion and the items I intend to keep on hand to handle my own family’s healthcare needs.  As a naturopath, mom and wife I am concerned about them and all of your families as well.

Scabies -A contagious skin disease marked by itching and small raised red spots, caused by the itch mite.   These bugs are considered to be parasites and can cause damage to the skin. scabies

Young Living Essential Oils: (Product Guide can be viewed here) Bergamot, Caraway or Laurel - Apply topically.  I will add a few drops in a spray bottle and spray it on the body, wash the bedding in hot water with Bergamot, Caraway or Laurel oil added.  Caution – dilution required for children 6 yrs & older.  Not recommended for children under 6 yrs.

Pine (Scotch Pine) – Add to water & spray on the body, furniture, carpets, etc.  Also not for children under 6  years, dilution for those 6 and over.

Idaho Tansy –  This oil can be added to water and sprayed on individuals and objects in the house.  Can also be diffused.   *Not for use with individuals with epilepsy.

Melaleuca Oil (Tea Tree Oil)Tea tree oil is one of the most popular remedies for eliminating scabies. It seems to be able to penetrate the skin and suffocate the insects.

Neem oil - Used by organic farmers as a natural insecticide.  In the case of scabies, neem oil prevents reproduction, a fact that is very pertinent due to their short life cycles.

—————————————————————————-

Tuberculosis (TB) -An infectious bacterial disease that is characterized by the growth of nodules (tubercles) in the tissues, especially in the lungs.  This disease is highly contagious and can be spread by airborne bacteria through coughing.

Lackland Air Force Base - They are reporting that the number of children with TB is staggering.
There are now 3 confirmed cases in Austin, TX as well.

Thyme Essential Oil -This oils chief constituent thymol, is a phenol that has been documented to be antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal.  Dr Jean Valnet, MD states that thyme oil kills the anthrax baccillus,  the typhoid bacillus, meningococcus, and the agent responsible for tuberbulosis.  This oil is a stronger antiseptic than phenol, which was widely regarded for many years as the ultimate germ killer.

Vitamin D3 Treating tuberculosis patients with 10,000 units of vitamin D daily versus the much smaller amount (400 units) usually advocated by conventional medicine led to a 100 percent cure rate.  (Mercola

It is critical to maintain a high level of nutrition in order for your immune system to fight disease.  Dr Bass has some suggestions for natural healing methods.

————————————————————————- Chicken Pox (Shingles) - a highly contagious disease caused by primary infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV).  In older adults it can manifest into a more dangerous disease called shingles. 

Ravensara Essential Oil – This oil can be applied topically to the irritated areas.  It can be added to a carrier oil for better coverage of area.

Peppermint Essential Oil – If there is fever, this oil can be applied to the bottom of the feet to assist the body in balancing temperatures.

Vitamin C - Ingesting higher doses of Vitamin C can assist the immune system in fighting off the virus.   When you are sick you can ingest a higher level than during times without sickness.

Vitamin D3  - Sunlight can be one of the best defenses for chicken pox as it naturally increases Vitamin D levels.  Supplementing with Vit D can be a back up plan if you do not have enough sun.

—————————————————————————- Lice - These little critters aren’t dangerous.  They don’t spread disease but they are highly contagious.  They area also annoying and sometimes hard to get rid of.  Traditional treatments include dangerous pesticide shampoos and sprays. Lice   Facilities housing the illegal alien children are reporting lice conditions so severe they can see lice crawling down the faces of the children. When my children were in elementary school it seemed that every year there were outbreaks of lice.  In order to protect my children from lice being spread to their hair and our home, we used the Fairy Tales Shampoo and Conditioner.  We never had lice.   fairytales Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Creme 32 oz. Shampoo + 32 oz. Conditioner (Combo Deal)

Prevention Spray – Mix 8 drops of each of the following oils:  Purification & Melaleuca in water in a spray bottle.  Spray on the hair.

Infestation  - If you end up getting infested with lice here are some natural methods of removal. Young Living Essential Oil Formula (mix oils with 1 ounce of YL V-6 oil or olive oil).   Add 1 tsp at a time and completely cover the scalp.  Rub the hair down from the scalp to the ends of the hair.  It is recommended that you leave this mixture on for as along as possible.  You can shampoo after 30 minutes.

Mix 4 drops of Thyme, 2 Drops Lavender 2 Drops of Geranium ………into the oil.   (~Taken from the Essential Oil Desk Reference) ** Tea Tree, Melaleuca and Rosemary oils are also beneficial for lice control.

If you are located in the southern border states I would not wait to get prepared.  When Fukushima radiation began to come upon the western coast of the United States, iodine products were sold out nationwide.  Others will not prepare in advance.  But you have the opportunity to do it now.  Remember the saying……”Forwarned is fore armed.”  Take the time to prepare yourself and your family for what may come.  Pray you don’t need it but thank God if you do that you took the risk seriously.

May God pour out His protection upon His people.
