Jan Rasmussen, Best-Selling Author of “Scared Poopless: The Straight Talk on Dog Care” has so many fantastic videos, that I just have to share one more that really resonated with me.
Our beloved Siamese Cat, Mina, was killed [murdered is more like it, shockingly] at a Vet’s office when they convinced my Nephew and my husband to have some of her teeth pulled. None of this made sense to me, as a Holistic Health Counselor, given her Asthma and the fact that she was over 10 years old. It seemed very high risk, but they downplayed any such risks and made it out to be a routine, no-big-deal type of procedure and assured me that she would adjust to not having some teeth and be fine.
Mina’s Trachea was ripped open by a Vet Tech whose arrogance and lack of integrity are beyond description. Neither Vet in the operating room did a thing to save Mina. She suffocated to death!
The Vet involved in this tragedy worked at the “Holistic” vet office called Smith Ridge Veterinary Clinic, run by the infamous Dr. Marty Goldstein. Both he and Dr. Jaqueline Ruskin negligently and improperly gave Mina Epinephrine while she could not breathe as her Trachea was torn. They negligently ‘forgot’ to give her a Tracheotomy and/or put tubes directly into her lungs so she could breathe while the Trachea was properly repaired.
Additionally, this female Vet was charged with 2nd Degree Negligence by the State of New York Disciplinary Board. One more complaint, and she will have her license suspended.
Clearly, no one in this Vet office was properly trained in any of these procedures, and their Idiocy caused Mina’s horrific death.
Imagine getting a call in the middle of the day, after being told that this is routine and everything would be fine, that your beloved and beautiful Cat is dead.
This Video by Jan Rasmussen is ALSO to be applied to cats. Please, Consumers BEWARE!
Jan Rasmussen, Author of “Scared Poopless: The Straight Scoop on Dog Care,” was my Guest on the Show on May 11th, 2013.
Her advocacy for our beloved Pets has brought about a Buzz with many millions of loving Pet Guardians and Families around the world.
However, the USA remains the ONLY Nation on Earth that promotes yearly, dangerous vaccines.
There really are no words that can better describe the tragedies that both over-vaccinating [and vaccinating AT ALL to begin with], and chemicalized/processed food can do to your Best Buddy than the Videos that Jan Rasmussen’s foundation has given to the public to learn from.
Please watch these videos and take action for your family’s best friend.
After having buried the trauma of being sexually abused as a child, my Guest on April 27th, 2013, Rose Heart, openly told my radio audience how this caused her to spiral into the darkness of Alcohol and Drug addiction over time as she emerged into adulthood.
The wake up call for her was having a child who was injured by a vaccine at what is erroneously called the “Well Baby” check-ups at a conventional Pediatrician’s office. Her son had serious breathing difficulties, and had an anaphylactic reaction soon after a series of toxic vaccines.
After the denials by the Pediatrician of any correlation of her son’s frightening reaction to the toxicity in the vaccines, Rose Heart’s personal research became a new life of TRUTH behind the matrix of deception that kept both her own life in a state of un-wellness and then stemmed into her family’s life.
Her determination to learn to heal her own body, her family’s bodies, and then to help others heal and live their true purpose led her to Herbal and Aromatherapy school. She also became a licensed Massage Therapist in her quest to understand the body and how to heal in the physical and spiritual senses.
Today, Rose Heart utilizes her Certified Herbalist and Aromatherapist knowledge to help others heal from all levels of past trauma. She also works with many people who just want to find healing and balance in their lives.
Rose went on to found an extraordinary company, Organic Infusions where Therapeutic, Medicinal grade Essential Oils are available, along with personal healing work with Rose with individual clients.
Rose’s compassion for people who have fallen into psychological turmoil and subsequent drug/alcohol abuse is what makes her unique in the natural healing community.
She’s “been there” and knows how to work with the natural healing modalities of Herbalism, Nutrition, Essential Oils, Juicing, and other incredible gifts from God to help people heal their lives and find the freedom from the chains of dis-ease that was once a burden that blockaded them from achieving their Godly purpose.
An incredible part of Rose Heart’s story is that she found Christianity and the Savior of God’s Love in her newfound life along her Journey to Natural Wellness.
Thank you, Rose, for your life and work on this Earth.
God healed Rose’s life through his beautiful Herbal Garden, guidance, and unsurpassed Love. And he can heal you naturally, too.
All life, all living beings… have a Divine purpose.

I did not have any idea how incredible Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils are to your immediate and long term health and well being until the past few years.
About 8 years ago, it was by chance that I had a bruise that was just not healing, so I just used my intuition to use some Essential Oils I had stuffed in my make-up drawer mixed with Sweet Almond Oil ["carrier oil"] on this bruise on my leg every day after I got out of the shower. In about a week, the bruise was totally gone.
This was my first moment of realization that I may be onto an Ancient healing practice that I once just passed off as some esoterically related, pretty smelling stuff you get from the natural food store and some skin care specialists.
I always knew I liked Essential Oils, because I would use them to avoid getting bit by stinging insects whenever I was gardening and hiking. But what a gift from God these awesome, powerhouse healers really are! They are true Gifts from the Garden, and all cells within your body respond to them when used properly.
My conversation with Nan Martin of Experience Essential Oils was on April 13, 2013.
Nan’s incredible energy is fantastic to learn from and to be around, as she is passionate about the historical importance that Essential Oils have played in healing people, animals, and even the Environment.
The Three Wise Men brought to Jesus the Holy Infant [surrounded by the ANIMALS] Frankincense, Myrrh, and Gold. All of these are powerful healers that date back to earlier than the Egyptians. The Torah and the Bible don’t bother to explain their importance because during these times, and for many thousands of years, all people knew of their prized healing powers and it was assumed by the writers of each book within the Old and the New Testaments that the reader is also knowing of these highly coveted healers from God’s Garden.
The Western Science culture, and it’s subsequent arrogance that everything not made in a chemical lab by human hands is too ‘sublime’ and inexplicable, therefore, not accepted by Scientific studies.
But this arrogance has cost us our quality of life, and too many people, animals and environmental treasures have been lost as a result of our “Scientific” indoctrination that was spawned from Greed, ignorance, and disconnection from the Earth and its wonders.
Is it not time to get back to the Garden?
The incredible experiences I have had over time with Essential Oils has opened my eyes to this natural, God-given modality as a prized part of my daily healing regiment.
Here are some tips for daily household use of Essential Oils so you can SAVE YOUR MONEY and make your own cleaning and air freshening products:
* Cleaning: Use Baking Soda with a few drops of Essential Oil of your choice [Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Sweet Basil, etc.] to clean your bathroom shower, tub, etc. rather than those toxic scrubs.
* Also, for countertops, kitchen, and other surfaces that are not wood: In a spray bottle, add a small amount of natural Castile liquid soap, like “Dr. Bronner’s” to the bottle, then put a generous amount of either White Vinegar or cheap Vodka, add equal part water, then sprinkle several drops of Essential Oils of your choice to the bottle. Close spray bottle and shake. You have the best, most healthy and heavenly fragrant cleaner on the planet!
*Air Freshener: In a small spray bottle add water [and a bit of cheap Vodka if you choose to have it dissipate faster] and the Essential Oil of your choice. This is the ONLY non-toxic, truly healing air freshener you could have…. and it will cost pennies to make.
Keep learning about Essential Oils, and learn to heal your body, mind, spirit, home, animals, Earth with these aromatic, cleansing wonders from a Divine God.

The State of California Legislature got bamboozled back in the mid 1970′s by the Chemical industry to make it the Law to install toxic, off-gassing, chemical warfare into all upholstered furniture.
The reasoning [the DECOY] for this argument to install such horrifying chemicals into furniture was for ‘flame retardant’ properties of such chemicals.
This has proven to be so damaging to the environment and people that it’s now become an epidemic to have Thyroid disorders, Hormone disorders, hyperactivity in children, and other illnesses that were not at all commonplace prior to these chemical additives.
Why the United States is the ONLY developed country in this world to require such chemicals proves the power of LOBBYING by specific industries ON THE STATE LEVEL, and not just the national level.
Because California required these ‘flame retardant’ chemicals, all manufacturers simply added these chemicals to ALL of the furniture they made for the USA market. Thus, everyone else who was not living in California has been contaminated with these dangerous, and often deadly chemicals when they buy most upholstered furniture in the USA.
The ONLY way to avoid this toxic soup of chemicals coming into your home, you must buy truthfully Organic furniture that has NO polyurethane foam or other batting that has been treated with such flame retardants. And by the way, when a “Green Washing” company states that they use “Soy” foam…. this is just as toxic, but with some soy oil added! Don’t buy it!
Another issue to pay attention to is WHAT the sofa/chair is made with on the inside! Are they using chemical-laden plywood? Most of the time they do. Are they using other toxic things like chemically treated fabrics that are ‘easy to clean?’
Don’t buy this. You WILL have to be Vigilant, but it’s worth saving your life over.
My conversation on Saturday March 30th, 2013, with Travis Nagle, one of the founders of Viesso Furniture in Southern California, was informative to many people who many have learned about this whole new paradigm of dangerous chemical exposure.
Most eco-friendly furniture is made with Latex rubber, but there are other natural products available like Hemp stuffing and Organic Cotton. There are many options, but the Consumer as of today in the USA does not know about them. You might need to do a bit of research, but all of the information is out there for you to gather.
My working with Travis has been a pleasure. I found some Hemp fabric that was the color I wanted, so I had it sent to Viesso for some pillows they are making for me.
As Consumers, if we continue to voice our dissatisfaction with toxic and Earth poisoning furniture and REFUSE to BUY it…. and put our money into healthier [and ecologically responsible] choices…. don’t you think the furniture industry will finally get the message? Will they be motivated to improve their business practices?

Plastic, lab-made polymers are used illicitly in hair care, facial creams, and even makeup. “Dimethicone” is one such toxic product that literally suffocates your skin as it stops it from breathing as it naturally does through the pores. You wind up with clogged pores and suffocated skin… and when used on hair, it eventually dries out the hair follicles and builds-up this plastic coating on the hair.
It should not be used in any body care product, but most body care manufacturers only care about the short term [immediate] results and don’t care about the toxicity or damage these additives cause to the human body.
In other words, your long-term health is of no concern to most makeup, hair and body care manufacturers.
You have to be your own investigator, and be VIGILANT in your quest for honorable, natural products that are both good for you and for the Earth.
The list of bad chemicals is a long one, but here is a “starter” list of some chemicals to avoid:
Propylene Glycol [also Butylene Glycol]- used as a cheap alternative to the more expensive Vegetable Glycerin. It is highly toxic and seeps directly through the skin and into the blood stream. A Liver and Kidney toxin. Banned in Europe.
Dimethicone- A plastic polymer that makes the skin and hair appear more smooth. This is short lived and can build up on both the skin and hair causing damage to both.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate [and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate]- Acts as a foaming agent. Causes Liver and Kidney damage, vision disturbances and damage to eye nerves, and Dermatitis and Eczema.
Benzyl Alcohol- Causes respiratory tract irritation, dizziness, decrease in blood pressure, nausea and headaches. This product is used in many detergents, nail polish remover, soaps, perfumes. A very cheap and caustic substitute for safer, yet more expensive products like Vinegar, Vodka, Witch Hazel.
Methylparaben [along with Ethyl, Butyl, Propylparabens]- Widely used to increase shelf life. Banned in Sweden and Japan. These chemicals are extremely toxic and have been the source of many health issues. Found in shampoo, conditioners, face creams, body creams, makeup, hair styling products, DENTAL PRODUCTS like Novacaine [shot straight into your blood stream.... WHAT?], hair color, and many products that are used on the body and in animal care and baby care, too. Keep a look out for these dangerous chemicals, and be a voice to stop this heinous act of using preservatives that are incredibly dangerous. There ARE natural, non-toxic [yet more expensive] alternatives like Vitamin C [Citric Acid], Rosemary Essential Oil and Extract, Vitamin E, and other natural products. But as stated, they are more expensive, and many manufacturers look at the bottom line and not your health!
Methylene Chloride- Supposedly banned in 1988 by the FDA, but it is used to this very day in cosmetics and body care that is downright harmful to your quality of life.
Sodium Benzoate- Snuck into many “natural” even “organic” products. This is a toxic preservative that turns into BENZENE when soaked into skin! Again, more expensive preservatives that are natural exist, but many manufacturers look at the bottom line only.
Talcum Powder- Implicated in many health disorders that are very serious. Prostate Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Asthma, and other illnesses that can be fatal. What is it doing in makeup, and baby products? There are NON-toxic alternatives like Arrowroot powder, Rice Powder, even Corn Starch. Don’t fall for the slick advertising and pretty packages filled with this carcinogen.
Fluoride- Used as a Rat Poison! This is a highly, highly toxic and corrosive chemical that is the by-product of the synthetic pesticide, aluminum, and coal industries. It has no business in your drinking water, and no business in toothpaste or dental products that your dentist is most likely clueless about. Remember, most Dentists are NOT Toxicologists and have zero training in Toxicology. MANY children have died from eating toothpaste and even in the dental chair when fluoride rinses are wrongfully put into their mouths. There are many, many Herbs, Essential Oils, Nut Oils, and even Sea Salt products that are healthy alternatives to using a dangerous poison! This is THE PLACE to start in your natural lifestyle makeover!
Cocamide DEA- Synthetic Surfectant. Creates foam in shampoos, etc. A carcinogen.
“Fragrance” or “Parfum”- Found in makeup, skin care, haircare, and sold as fresheners and includes commercial-made women’s and mens perfumes. The hundreds of chemicals that create these synthesized smells are extremely toxic to your body and to your brain cells. Many people say they are ‘allergic’ to perfume…. No, they are allergic to the toxic chemicals that create the highly advertised, synthetic concoctions that are also environmental toxins. In fact, it would be illegal to pour them down the drain because they are harmful to aquatic life! Do not buy synthetic perfumes. Save your money, and save your life.
Instead, opt for the many Essential Oils and handmade pressed flower and essential oil and spice parfums that have NO synthetic, chemical compounds. You will be blown away by the incredible natural products that are available to enlighten your life, mind, spirit. Make your own with a blend of organic oil [like Jojoba, for instance] and your favorite essential oil. Actress Drew Barrymore does this exact hand made preparation with her favorite essential oil, Patchouli.
My interview on March 23, 2013, with Stephanie Greenwood of Bubble and Bee Organics was, hopefully, informative to my listeners who care about their health.
You can’t control the pollution outside– although as taxpayers and citizens of this Earth, we certainly should have our voices heard about stopping the dirty industries that are intoxicating our lives.
But what you CAN control immediately is the quality of products you allow into your home, into your body, and onto your skin.
Take a look at Stephanie’s blog on her website Bubble and Bee and check out the “Chemical of the Day” information that Stephanie has put together to educate the consumer. This is an impressive educational site, so read and learn from her incredible research, and then arm yourself…. YOU WILL BE AMAZED at how many so-called “natural” products contain these harmful chemicals.
