Learn from the Past

Read a lot about this story in a book called Poisoned Nation. It’s a heartbreaking story that affected so many people years ago, but it still has yet to be made right. Well, not that you can make something like this “right.” I’m not a conspiracy theory nut or anything like that, but this story certainly taught me not to blindly trust the government (especially the military). Never assume they have your best interest at heart. Never. Take care of yourself and your own and be loud when speaking out.

What Diets And Deodorants Have In Common (It’s Probably Not What You Think)

Found this article to be fascinating. I wholeheartedly agree. Certainly, people can reach a point where their weight impacts their health, but I think that point is greatly exaggerated many times. Why? Because so many people are making money off people who have been convinced they are ugly and unhealthy and need to go start a new diet or buy new exercise equipment.

I Want to Save the World… But How?

There are a lot of things in this world that are really, really wrong. People who are killed, families torn apart, children who are starving. So many of us seem set on promoting violence and war instead of peace. How many millions have died because we couldn’t get along and show love to our neighbors?

Then there are all of the problems that have come with industrialization and modern things. The great power of science is being used for profit instead of the good of the people and the very future of humanity could be at stake (antibiotic resistant illnesses, GMO’s, global warming caused by plastics and so many other things, polluted air and water, chemicals in our food and everything around us).

It’s a lot to take in, and once you have taken it all in, you’re left wondering, “Well… what now? What can I do?” More

Clean Water, At Last!

Back in late 2010 (or early 2011, not sure), I began seeing a massage therapist who promoted natural, green living. She kept chickens in her backyard (in the city), grew her own herbs, had a compost pile, collected rainwater, walked instead of driving when possible, and didn’t wear a bra. She was extremely friendly and genuine. Looking back, I’m almost certain she was Wiccan or at the least Pagan, which is cool. Anyway. She lent me a book that helped open my eyes so that I could see the corruption and abuse around me. It discussed things like how fluoride came to be put into the public’s drinking water (it didn’t have anything to do with dental health), the effects of pesticides and insecticides on human health and our environment, and so many other things. It was all very new and overwhelming to me at the time; parts of me were skeptical, but the more I observed and experienced in life the more I knew the information was true (the book’s sources and more research on my part were a big factor, of course). The truth about what is in public water has weighed heavy on my mind ever since. The things we ingest on a daily basis, when consuming public water, are far from safe. Rather, the chemicals and such in our water are poisonous to our bodies. Small children, infants, and fetuses are especially susceptible to these toxins. Fluoride may or may not be beneficial for teeth when used topically, but it is NOT beneficial to ingest it. Even the ADA is beginning to recognize this fact. Wikipedia’s page on dietary minerals says,  More

GAPS: A Deviation in the Journey & How I Got Here

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have a lot of health issues. I have syndromes and allergies and asthma and… stuff. In 2011 I discovered a healing protocol known as GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome). It is a 1-2 (on average) year diet plan developed by a British doctor who used to heal her son’s autism. I don’t have autism, and neither do many other people who have benefited from following the GAPS protocol. The diet’s purpose is to provide healing and resealing of the gut through foods that will starve bad bacteria but promote the health of good bacteria. No sugar, no starchy foods, and no grains are few of the big things on the banned list. Lacto-Fermented veggies, cultured dairy, juicing, and lots of bone broth are big players on the approved list. Fermented/cultured foods are full of probiotics, which will help boost good gut bacteria. Bone broth is full of gelatin and other nutrients that will aid in healing and sealing the gut. Juicing helps the body cleanse and heal itself (and is tasty!). More

New Things to Learn (Yay!) & Some Thoughts

I’m very excited about a new course of study I’ve begun. It’s teaching the importance of diet in conceiving, pregnancy, lactation, and in creating healthy future generations. I don’t plan on conceiving just yet, but I know I want to do it in the nearish future, and by planning ahead and doing things correctly now, I will be giving my baby a better start in life (and my subsequent grandchildren). Here is the course and the book that is written by the same author.
I’ve done plenty of reading about traditional foods and how they affect fertility and genetics, but this course has much to offer that is both new to me and very important. The first lesson got me thinking about all the various factors throughout history that have affected a mother’s ability to carry and produce healthy children. The availability of nutrient-dense food is a huge factor, but there are also things like religious views towards family planning/spacing children apart, outside attacks due to war or raiding, quality of the water, and exposure to deadly illnesses. Given all the hardships and sorrows humanity has faced over the years, it’s a wonder we’re still alive. More
