Lately, people who stand for the truth or even want to search out something to see which side is correct are made to look stupid or anything else to turn you against them.

DON’T TRUST WHAT YOU ARE HEARING ON YOUR LOCAL AND NATIONAL NEWS or anywhere else for that matter. Search out the truth. Take time to listen to both sides of the issue. People, they are brainwashing you!

Big Pharma makes a lot of money off of immunizations and drugs (whether the drugs are over the counter or prescribed). Things sometimes are put into those drugs to make them more efficient that might be dangerous. Why? Maybe they didn’t want to spend the money on research to find something that would work and still be positive to our health. Do you really think they care about you? They care about the money.

Lobbyists are sent to make sure their product is made to look good to you. Those are just some examples of what is going on out there where the results could destroy your health. There are so many different avenues where someone is making money while making your health at risk. Big advertisement goes behind this. Main stream media could be behind it also. DON’T TRUST ANYONE WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH. Search it out, compare what both sides of a controversy have to say. Skip a television show and spend that time doing a little research on which ever subject has come to your attention.

It is easy to fall prey to deceit when we see some subject on the news, hear it on the radio while driving, and hear our friends parroting what the media told them.


A Few Tips for Better Health

We’ve all been brainwashed to think the only way to heal is from a pill. But there are more natural ways to accomplish this feat that are much kinder to your body and very pleasant.

The problem is that we want to cherry pick when we hear of a natural healing solution.  This means you just pick one thing as a magic bullet and try it. I hate to tell you, but this doesn’t work very well.  It might help a little, but probably won’t work real well.

Let me briefly tell you some quick over all adjustments you need to make and then focus on one particular thing this time.

First, try and cut out most junk food. You can still have pizza, but make your own (or you can buy this) ancient grains crust without wheat or try the cauliflower pizza crust. Add pepperoni that is made without nitrates. Use grass-fed cheese (the cows were not fed grains). This is just an example. You may not be able to totally change your over-all eating habits at once. Change your eating patterns as you can and work on it. Your health will improve and your body will thank you.

Drink lots of good water throughout your day.  Not tap water, but use spring water or filtered water. You are made mostly of water and your body runs more efficiently if you replace the water your body has used. You lose water even in winter time not just when you perspire in summer. Every time you breathe you are expelling water. That is only one way you lose it.

Cut out all over the counter drugs as much as possible. Use Elderberry syrup when you have a cold coming on. Echinacea seems to work synergistically with it too. That combo has stopped a sore throat and cold in one day with me when I used it. If a cold has already settled in, then it can still shorten your time of a cold. Viruses can’t replicate themselves. They need your body’s cells as a host to do that for them. Elderberry has been proven to help stop that process within your body.

Essential Oils are really awesome. But the kind you pick up from the store is most likely adulterated. You need a good therapeutic grade E.O. from a reputable company.  Then experiment with them. Some oils work better on one person than another. I have found Oregano oil likes my body and the two work together to make me better. But always use a carrier oil with your E.O. as some of the E.O.s, like Oregano, are warm and may be uncomfortable without it. Oregano healed my knee that had hurt me for two years. It has been 4 or 5 years now and my knee is still doing good. It took about 4 to 6 weeks of adding it to my bath at least twice a week until the pain finally went away for good.  Recently, just for the experiment, I rubbed Oregano (with Jojoba oil as a carrier) on my tummy when my intestinal blockage was bothering me. I’ve never heard of doing this with this particular oil, but the other oils suggested for this didn’t seem to work that well. Wow, amazing results from this experiment. Like I said, some oils will work better for you than someone else. See which one is your intimate friend.

Anyway, I just shared a very brief summation of a few things you can do to get that zip and better health back. Start today and you will be doing your body a favor!

A Quick, Low Cost – High Nutrition Meal

My Lunch Recipes for today
My Lunch Recipes for today

I made a wonderful white bean soup and had a sourdough pastrami sandwich. Then my desert was cookies and milk.  How can those be healthy and at low expense?  Ah, read my blog and find out!

I’m going to go through my ingredients and how they saved me money and how they are still healthy.

First of all, my bread was on sale. It is NOT organic or sprouted, but it was non GMO, unbleached flour, real sour dough starter and had few ingredients. Wheat tends to scratch your intestines and that I can’t afford with my  colon problem. But sour dough made with a real starter is easier to digest than most other breads. So occasionally I will eat some.

I found pastrami ends that had been cut off the meat roll and packaged up for sale. Ends and pieces of meat is a real money saver. I sliced off what I could for sandwiches and cut the rest of the ends up to put in soups and stews. Then I froze what I was not using today. The pastrami was healthy in the fact that it stated there were no nitrates in it.  Yeah! Nitrates in meat can be cancer causing, nasty stuff.  I prefer grass-fed meat, but this will have to suffice for now.

I slathered the two pieces of sourdough bread with my better butter. That is butter and olive oil mixed in my bullet machine.

I put a slice of my organic pepper jack cheese on my pastrami (which I had put on the bread in the frying pan). The better butter was on the outside of the sandwich. Then I put some Bayerischer Rotkohl on top (that is sauerkraut made with purple cabbage and apples- regular sauerkraut will work too).  The more colorful the vegetables, the healthier it is. The natural chemicals that make the colors are powerful cancer fighting soldiers. I believe they can help you in many ways. So BE COLORFUL with your veggies!

I put some good water in a pan and added some organic cut up carrots, celery, onion and garlic. (I smashed the garlic cloves first and let them set on the cutting board for 15 minutes. It’s important to let the smashed garlic sit at least 10 minutes and work its magic. After that amount of time a chemical change has happened and the cooking won’t destroy the beneficial properties of the garlic as much).

Then I added some chunked up pastrami and two cans of white beans. No, they weren’t organic this time but they were on sale. I usually use organic beans when I find them. Canned food is not the best, but I keep some around in case of an emergency. They need to be used occasionally and replaced.

I salted the soup with my Italian salt I had made from own grown herbs.

For desert I had some gluten free chocolate and vanilla rabbit cookies from Annie’s Organics. I got a very small container and put some in it so I would know exactly how much I ate. They are very small anyway but I need to work on keeping the sugar I consume at a low level. (The cookies were on sale for $.99 a bag).  Then I poured a glass of organic milk and YUM!
