My conversation with Leslie Carol Botha of Holy Hormones! was lively as this discussion about hormones has so many sub-categories that are crucially important in order to grasp the big picture of hormones and how important they are to every aspect of your health and living on this planet.
Leslie told me how your brain is in charge of the hormones and that you must protect this incredible, delicate balance to maintain hormonal health. Zeolitesare one product that Leslie uses daily [and has gotten me using them as well]. Zeolites are a mineral liquid substance that helps to wash out of your body the heavy metals, toxins, and xenon-estrogen mimicker invaders.
Zeolites are incredible because they don’t hurt any organ while they cleanse your body of toxins. Remember, you need to also be taking care of your Liver and Kidneys with Milk Thistle and Dandelion to help your body clean itself of the daily onslaught of pollutants.
Men are also vulnerable to hormonal imbalance with the many petrochemicals, toxic pharmaceutical drugs, plastics [xeno-estrogens] and other intoxicant chemicals that bombard their bodies and cause an over-production of Estrogen in their bodies.
Check out Leslie’s web site for more information on what she recommends and to listen to her many shows regarding this most important topic www.holyhormones.com
I take Zeolites with Chlorella, Vitamin D [Garden of Life brand, "Raw"], a high quality powdered greens supplement in my morning smoothie, Maca powder [comes in capsules now, too], Wild Yam cream [El Milagro Herbs], I also have Wild Yam in a dropper supplement form, pine pollen and bee pollen, and I clean my Liver and Kidneys with Milk Thistle and Dandelion supplements and herbal teas, and now I am trying an Essential Oil cream to add to my arsenal. I also like “Dorey Aromatherapy,” who also makes an essential oil hormonal balancing cream. Lastly, there are natural progesterone creams on the market that do not contain toxic additives. “All Natural Cosmetics.com” sells one brand. Do your research, and take control of your own health.
There are other products that Leslie has on her web site that I plan on using. She gave us the excellent brand of “Young Living” essential oils who makes a natural progesterone/essential oil blend.
Leslie made it clear that your brain is the main creator and Chief of your body’s hormones, so taking care of your brain health is what we should focus on when balancing our hormones.
One at-home healing method that Leslie shared is taking a bath with Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda, and Epsom Salts. This, she says, helps to rid your body gently of toxins as you soak. I tried it one night, and I slept like a baby! I now keep these products next to my tub! Please use “food grade” hydrogen peroxide, and not the toxic stuff at the average pharmacy.
I also will add that when you look at the toxic ingredients in DAILY personal care products, cleaning materials, toxic furniture and mattresses [that have very dangerous 'flame retardants' that are carcinogens], pesticides, toxic paints, toxic/GMO/processed foods and preservatives, toxic clothing [dyes, synthetic fabrics], very damaging hair color products [at most salons and in pretty packages in the drug store], toxic makeup… you cannot be surprised at the hormonal stress our bodies are under, and thus, the many dis-eases that seem to elude most of the medical care system.
Clean up your lifestyle! LOOK at ingredients, and learn what ingredients are toxic such as processed sugar, processed salt [VERY different from the good-for-you natural Sea Salt], perfumes or “parfum” [contains hundreds of chemicals], Sodium Benzoate [turns into Benzene once in your blood stream and in many, many shampoos, conditioners, makeup, etc.], Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Methyl Paraben [all Parabens], Propylene Glycol, petroleum, talcum powder, PPD [P-Phenylenediamine] in chemical hair dyes, flame retardants like PBDE [accumulates in body and in the environment]… and the list goes on.
#1.) I use ALL natural cosmetics. I am a real blood-hound when it comes to seeking natural face care and makeup. It’s amazing to know that you have many beautiful companies that are making such gorgeous cosmetics and skincare so you don’t have to compromise.
#2.) My shampoo/conditioner/hair color: There are many small companies that make amazing non-toxic hair care. Allafia is one brand along with Aubrey, Sea Chi, Solay, Living Libations, Dr. Christopher, Griffin Remedy, Miessence, Paul Penders, 100 percent pure, California Baby, Dr. Alkaitis, The Body Deli, Feed Your Volume by Yarok, Living Nature, Intelligent Nutrients, Dr. Bronner’s, Keys-Soap Company… and the list continues to many more excellent, natural companies!
There are some great companies that have come forward who are truthful, and honorable in their ingredients. So be encouraged! But also be aware that there are many “natural” and “organic” brands that are outright dangerous and continue to slip into their formulas some hormone damaging, immune compromising ingredients.
Hair color: There are several great brands of Henna. Cleopatra used Henna and many great beauties of the world have used, and continue to use Henna as their choice for naturally beautiful [and safe] hair color. There are a few brands that I personally like, as they cover gray and give great hair color that you can play with when you mix different colors together. The trick in mixing Henna that will cover gray is to use a glass bowl and a plastic spatula for mixing to start with. Add in Warm/almost boiling water, Coconut Oil [I use approximately 1 to 2 TBSP but use your common sense based on the amount of Henna you are making], Sea Salt [1 TBSP or so], Apple Cider Vinegar or Vodka [2 TBSP or so/just use your own creative energy here], Vanilla Extract, and mix all into a ‘brownie batter’ consistency. Leave on hair for at least one hour [please wear a shower cap], and wash out using FIRST Jojoba oil, or any wonderful oil that you like with warm water to get the henna out. Then shampoo with Organic/natural shampoo. Save your money…. and save your life. Do your own hair color and get really creative!
My favorite brands of authentic Henna are “Henna King” and “Colora.” If you have blond hair, Colora has more choices. However, Colora takes a bit more massaging to get out, so be gentle and use lots of oil and warm water to work it out of your hair after you color. You will be really pleased with the results once you get the hang of it! Additionally, there are other true, authentic Henna brands literally from the middle-east, so do an internet search. I do not like any of the Henna sold in Health Food Stores or even Whole Foods. They are not able to cover gray, and their quality to me is questionable. Henna should be beautiful, easy, and even empowering to you as a woman since it can nourish your hair and allows the pores on your scalp to regenerate, breathe, and thereby grow stronger hair.
#3.) CLEANING for home: Use a spray bottle with white vinegar and water with some Essential Oil of your choice [Lavendar, Peppermint, etc.] This will be your household cleaning spray. Also, you can use my favorite combination of Cheap VODKA and water in a spray bottle with a few drops of your favorite Essential Oil. “Thieves” brand cleaners are also fantastic. They are entirely non-toxic and use essential oils in their formula. Baking Soda for scrubbing out bathtubs, tile, etc. You can also use some Hydrogen Peroxide on tiles with Baking Soda for more power. There are non-toxic companies, and some are sold at Whole Foods or other natural stores, but please read labels and be careful.
Again, there is a lot of money to be made from saying “Organic” or “Natural” and you, the consumer, need to be vigilant in reading ingredients.
#4.) Furniture and Bedding. Please buy only Organic. I know this is a tough one. If you have a bed you like, then get an Organic Wool or Natural Latex topper. All of the beds in my home are Organic.
I have several different brands of Organic beds in my home, and I have become a detective over the years in finding the better, more honorable companies in this arena. I should do a whole show on this!
There is one brand, however, I MUST forewarn my listeners to STAY AWAY from as it was the single most negative and hostile experience I have ever had in my life with any company, and to boot, their bed was so badly made and uncomfortable that I had to give it away on “Freecycle”… Sorry, “Lifekind” but you are horrible. They would hang up on me when I would call for a refund for something I returned several weeks prior… and the whole experience was very far from “Organic” or remotely health oriented.
When it comes to home/office Furniture, I have found an Amish company that will hand make sofas, chairs, etc. and there is a web site that I love called “yourecoteam.com”.
ABC Carpet and Home has some choices, but again, you need to be careful and really understand labels and demand Wool, Latex, Hemp, and other natural materials. The toxic foams with fire retardants is what is so dangerous. Latex and Wool are naturally fire retardant.
Viesso in Los Angeles has a great line, and their stuff is totally natural.
Many good, yet small companies are cropping up all the time, so learn to be your own detective and search via the internet! Always be careful, of course, and learn to understand the dangers of certain materials like toxic foam cushions [including the "soy" version] and certainly the “Scotchguard” fabrics and other non-natural and totally toxic materials.
Life changes amazingly when you start, one step at a time, to take back the control. This does mean learning to say “NO” when you need to!
I would never buy a “discount” furniture product with tons of formaldehyde and other carcinogens nor would I ever buy even a “high end” product that I know has equally immune damaging contents. Start to be a voice for non-toxic products, and write a letter to your favorite manufacturer if you need to… business will change their toxic ways and start to offer healthier products when the Consumer finally says, “NO MORE TOXIC PRODUCTS!”
Taking control of your life is a bit more work, but you will be a whole lot safer, healthier, smarter, and gratified when you are insistent on detoxing your entire life.
Hormones are affected by all of these cumulative toxins that your body has to endure. Make it easier for your body as you become an eco-savvy human.
My show last Saturday, September 29th, 2012, had four Guests whom I consider to be Messengers of Truth in a world of misinformation, propaganda, and constant jingles, riddles, and flashing time stealers.
Steve McIntosh, Author of “Evolution’s Purporse: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins,” made several incredible points in our interview.
First, the “Big Bang” theory is not a theory. It is a fact. However, the difference with the factual beginnings of the Universe is that it is compatible with Spirituality. There was an Entity [God] before the Universe came into being.
Life and the universe are not purposeless accidents, as the original ‘scientific’ theory hypothesized.
Secondly, the Environmental movement must evolve in order to achieve its goals.
Steve says that as global warming increases, Environmentalists need to recognize how anti-establishment stridency is discouraging to the mainstream whose support they need to be effective in combating the proximate causes of climate change.
The solution to bringing this Environmental movement into the “mainstream” for immediate, full-scale community [and corporate] action requires a cultural shift that better integrates the Environmental movement with everyday society, and thereby creating greater solidarity within American [and world] culture overall.
I would like to add that I do see this happening as more people start to understand the direct correlation between their consumer and daily choices and the ecological damage that occurs as a result of these choices. I have seen an evolution in the past few years that is exciting to be a part of [albeit it very slow in some parts of the USA].
Third, Economic dominance is not the only way to provide global leadership.
Steve McIntosh encourages Americans to embrace their country’s changing responsibilities.
America’s role in the world is inevitably changing as the globalized economy increasingly empowers other countries, such as China, India and the Middle East.
As our world changes, Americans can prevent the decline of America’s global leadership by evolving their definition of leadership, and thereby evolving their culture into the next stage of historical development.
Through this cultural evolution America can demonstrate a successful form of sustainability, post-material society that provides deeper forms of fulfillment than the rewards offered by consumerism and status.
Fourth, Can artificial intelligence ever truly replicate the human self, resulting in self-conscious machines? “Trans-humanists” subscribe to the theory that self-replicating computers will soon undertake their own evolution, but Steve McIntosh explains how this premise disregards the nature of the self and what it means to be conscious.
Many of Steve’s points are incredibly rich in complexity, and really requires all of us to start thinking. This book stretched me intellectually. This is a “must read” for every person who seeks knowledge and personal empowerment.
Check out Steve’s web site for more: www.stevemcintosh.com
I have talked on several shows about the horrifying, diabolical dangers of Pesticides.
ALL chemical pesticides are chemical warfare weapons that are re-packaged as “home use” pesticides. Don’t be fooled when it comes to the misleading, even fraudulent marketing and advertising when it comes to the supposed safety of chemicals used for pesticides. All of these DNA damaging substances came directly out of Nazi Germany. They are, indeed, chemical biological weapons, and they do hurt people, animals, plants, groundwater, food sources, and all life.
My Guest for this segment, Josh Vincent of the Northwest Center for Alternative to Pesticides, explained the many autoimmune disorders that are directly related to exposure to chemical pesticides that are sprayed routinely around residential homes, in our food agriculture, in our skies [for the misguided and downright stupid "West Nile" spraying], and in gardening.
The pathetic apathy that has overcome our elected officials, and then literally blanketed the consciousness of the Taxpayer is certainly something to be alarmed about. We need to stand up to these powerful Chemical lobbies that don’t care about your future, your health, your food quality, your children’s health, or your pets.
And by the way, those supposed “flea and tick” toxic chemicals that get put into the shoulder blades of our animals are ALSO deadly killers. DO NOT USE THEM! Instead, put Garlic powder into your pets food along with Grapefruit Seed Extract into their water, and just give them a nice shampoo with non-toxic, essential oil shampoos that are now readily available to keep your pets flea free.
When you can trace the DDT exposure all the way to the North Pole, and into the blubber of marine mammals and Polar Bears… you know that these chemicals are persistent and do not ‘fade’ over time. They simply travel throughout the eco-system causing damage to everything they contaminate.
We cannot afford to fall asleep on this issue. This is a big, big issue to overcome and to combat since the Chemical companies are relying on both the ignorance and trust of society to get away with murder, literally.
Check out this informative website and please take action for yourself and for your community: www.pesticide.org
Hemp is a highly nutritious “Superfood” with all Essential Fatty Acids [3,6,9] and protein that can literally feed the world because it is both easy and ecologically friendly to grow. It needs very little water, and actually remineralizes the ground soil as it grows in a process called “phytomerediation.”
Hemp can be used for housing, fuel [replacing petrochemicals], replace nylon, clothing, medicine, PAPER, replaces toxic chemical plastics, food, beauty treatments, making automobiles, airplanes, boats, agricultural feed, natural antiseptics, natural pest control …. and the list goes on endlessly.
So, why would the United States turn their backs on this opportunity to help re-charge both the Environment AND the Economy in one shot by re-establishing a PRO-Hemp agenda?
Why is it currently illegal to grow or cultivate Hemp in the United States? Why are we, as Americans, sending our money to China, India, Canada, Pakistan and other countries in order to IMPORT Hemp seeds, Hemp oil products, Hemp clothing, etc?
The Forestry and Cotton industries are behind the demise of this amazing crop from the United States. They were intimidated and obviously concerned enough to lobby Congress to prohibit Hemp because it was the same family as “marijuana.”
However, Hemp is not a hallucinogenic plant and cannot be smoked for the mind-altering affects that Marijuana offers. Although Hemp is from the Cannabis species, its THC content is negligible and cannot be used for ‘getting high’ as Opponents of Hemp argue in order to keep their special interests as the tax-guzzling crops in America’s farmlands.
The positive attributes of Hemp also include cleaning the air, preventing soil erosion since its roots grow deep, and one acre of Hemp plants produces more agricultural products than 2 acres of Cotton or 4 acres of trees! Hemp trees/plants also clean the air as they release a ton of Oxygen into the air as they grow heartily and quickly in just about any climate.
Thanks to Eric ‘the red’ Hughes of Chi Hemp Industries for his magnificent research over the past few decades, and for your voice in this very important matter for the Ecology and for the future of the Earth.
Check out www.hempoil.ca and get some yummy Hemp products and educate yourself. Let’s take back our future by restoring common sense to both our politics and to the taxpayer/consumer.
Entire families are broken apart… babies are run over cliffs or run to exhaustion and die… mothers are separated from their babies and the cries are unthinkable and heart wrenching… the Stallions are abused and castrated with crude means… the ones that are ‘too wild’ are shot dead…. and too many other wretched and totally un-American abuse of our National Heritage.
The story of our Wild Horses and the ILLEGAL Round-ups overseen by Ken Salazar of the much-corrupted Department of Interior and the ‘subsidiary’ Bureau of Land Management [BLM] has increased, surprisingly, under the Obama Administration. Sadly, it is just one more lie that our current President made when he was campaigning in 2008 and appealing to many Environmentalists like me.
When he appointed Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Department of the Interior, I had a foreboding feeling that nothing good was going to come from this very unhealthy appointment to the Cabinet to the President. This was four years ago, and it got worse with every year in terms of our Environment and our Wildlife.
And, indeed, my sense in 2008 was right. Under Mr. Salazar, we have these illegal Round-ups that kill, disable, and terrorize innocent animals, and then we saw the worst oil tragedy in the history of the world take place in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Thugs that declare a war of Terror are doing it at the bequest of the Oil and Cattle industries.
This is exactly WHY you, as a Consumer, should NEVER buy any beef from just any store under just any name [or McDonald's or any other fast food chain-- the food is NOT REALLY CHEAP! IT HAS A COST UNIMAGINABLE TO YOU, THE TAXPAYER]… you should ONLY buy Local, Organic, Humane, Sustainable, Grass Fed, and small farmed. Every time you ignore your power as a Consumer to create the change you really wish to see in this world, you are denying innocent living beings like our Wild Horses and our Wolves and all other Wildlife the right to live freely… simply because you are inadvertently supporting blood-industries like the big Agribusinesses that lobby Congress to have their way on OUR public, taxpayer lands!
Better yet, go Vegetarian. You’ll be Alkalinizing your body, and naturally healing your body. You’ll also be supporting the Environment in the right way by your lifestyle choices. Remember, all animal products create an ACIDIC body, which is the breeding ground for disease.
The point to my conversation with Suzanne Roy of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign was to both raise awareness to the Consumer and to hopefully inspire people to take Action for our beautiful remaining Wildlife, and for the ecological balance of our last remaining open spaces.
Please take a look at this amazing web site and give your support to save our Wild Horses and Burros from the horrors of Slaughter. They need us.
Thanks for listening. This was an incredible show, and is available in the “Archives” section of this blog.
Where are our pollinating bees going? What is causing the die-offs?
The answer is simple and the resolution should be just as simple, but the Politics that encumber the resolutions to being enacted are unbelievably complex.
On Conscious Lifestyles on September 15, 2012, my first Guest for the day was Bee Keeper and Educator Raymond DuBois.
He told my audience about the necessity of Integrated Crop Management and how maintaining a respectful balance of the indigenous environment will bring higher, more healthy yields of food crops…. and protect the NATIVE Bees to the geographical area.
However, this is the OPPOSITE of what our American Taxes are supporting! The Bee die-offs are a result of a poor understanding of how to properly produce food without Chemical Pesticides, Chemical/petroleum based Fertilizers, and the horrendous “clear cutting” and bulldozing of the natural, indigenous environment of the agribusiness practice of “Mono Crop” production.
This practice of removing and thereby destroying the entire environment to have thousands of acres of ONE crop [such as Corn, Soy, etc.] is destroying the native Bee populations.
Add onto this diabolical practice the usage of pesticides and fertilizers that KILL our natural Bees and other pollinators, and you have massive die-offs and a critical tipping point in our Environment that is now threatening food crops and our future.
Why would the EPA ignore this obvious raping of our Eco-system? Are they NOT “The ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY?” The obvious question is Why they are not living up to the title of their very own name. Politics, pay-offs, and Lobbying by large Agribusinesses and Chemical Fertilizer/Chemical Warfare companies is a huge percentage of the answer.
This is certainly no time to be a passive tax payer. Apathy is something that the very Chemical Fertilizers and Pesticides CAUSE in the human brain, by the way! These very dangerous Chemicals kill brain cells, and cause immune dysfunction and endocrine/hormone harm.
The urgent need for the Consumer to take back the quality of food cannot be over-emphasized.
Write, email, call and be a voice to your local, elected Politicians to outright DEMAND that our taxes be funneled into Organic, Sustainable, Integrated Crop Production that respects both the Environment and our much-needed Pollinators!
Without our Bees, we have no future. No kidding here. It really is time for Action.
Check out Raymond DuBois’s Web Site www.beelove.org
Support your LOCAL, Organic, SMALL and Humane Farms. You can internet search for your local Community Supported Agriculture organizations. There are many that will deliver to your town, and even to your front door weekly! Stop supporting ALL large-scale food manufacturers and put your efforts into healing your body with natural, sustainably grown and harvested food. Food can be your medicine, and it is the only thing that can truly heal your body.
The second half of my show broadcast on Saturday, September 15th explored more detail on the horrifying topic of Vaccines in general, but the “Gardasil” vaccine that is now marketed for BOTH girls and boys ages 9-26.
The carnage this toxic vaccine has left behind is nothing short of Genocide of our next generation. The over-vaccinating of our children with extremely toxic [never proven "safe"] witches brew of Formaldehyde, Aluminum, Mercury, unknown live viruses, other dangerous adjuvants like Squalane…. is it any wonder we have ADHD, Autism, Learning disabilities and behavior issues of ALL kinds, and an array of Autoimmune dis-eases?
I highly suggest that all of my blog readers and radio audience around the world take the steps to educate themselves, and ultimately ARM themselves against the falsified, fraudulent messages that are both subliminally and overtly sent to the Consumer daily.
The buzz of FEAR tactics that are expertly utilized to gain a firm CONTROL over your behavior that makes you a PASSIVE Consumer [sucker] for these wretched vaccines is part of the Propaganda that is part of the big-Pharmaceutical/Government collusion to keep you sick, and in need of more drugs, therapy, other toxic treatments, etc.
Check out Leslie Carol Botha’s website at HolyHormones.com and learn, each day, something new about your body, and how intricately balanced it is and certainly deserves to be treated with natural, healing respect.
Tags: Green Building, Sustainable Home Building Practices, A Conversation With Green Building Expert David Johnston
The Insulated Concrete Forms [ICF] and Structural Insulated Panels [SIP] and Straw Bale building materials are strong, forever-lasting, sustainable methods of building that creates healthier homes that are better insulated, sound-proof, and eco-friendly to live in.
Why has America been so slow in adopting these incredibly fast, easy forms of building?
Our old growth forests are disappearing. “Stick frame” building is a post-war “cheapie” style of building that is totally unsustainable. Douglas Fir Forests are being destroyed for this heinous building method that really needs to be outlawed in order to re-direct our building methods to ones that are both more durable and sustainable.
The indiscriminate clear-cutting of short-sighted and greedy lumber companies along with the foolish behavior of our bribed Elected Officials has put our air quality, and the future of all life on the brink.
Did you know that these egregious Lumber companies have lobbied Congress to have YOUR Federal Land “clear cut” for their own profits? Did you also know that these Lumber companies are allowed to walk into the Forest with Guns and ammunition and kill off any wildlife that happen to be grazing or living their lives in the very Forest that your tax dollars are supposed to be protecting?
Clear cutting kills birds, deer, wolves, baby animals of all kinds, and it kills our air quality. The forests are our “Lungs” of the Earth, and we cannot have Oxygen without them.
Wood is not something that should be creating the shell of a home. We need to be using better materials that don’t mold, catch fire, or create havoc on the Earth’s last remaining Forests.
ICF’s and SIP’s are the answer. They are faster to build and the incredible beauty of a Green Built home is unmistakable. The FEELING you get when you are inside a Green built home is also unmistakable. You feel at peace, happy, and you can breathe without taking in fumes from off gassing toxic materials used in most homes by uninspired and uneducated contractors.
My Guest on this weeks show for August 18, 2012 was Author and Educator David Johnston. He is one of America’s top Green Building experts and has written four books that are easy to read and a delight to learn from. Green living is both fun and easy once you know where to get the information you need to create a sustainable, beautiful home and community.
You can also get all of the manufacturers of Green Products [literally from "A" to "Z"] from a think tank called “Building Green” based in Vermont. They publish online Guide called the “Green Spec” Directory, and this is a MUST HAVE Guide on where to buy Green Building Products, pricing, etc. Check them out and join them at www.buildinggreen.com
David made many great points in our conversation this week on HOW to Green Build, and certainly on how to locate and hire an honorable, knowledgeable and competent Green Contractor.
Don’t waste your time with people who are not educated on Sustainable living or building methods. This will only lead to an uphill climb for you, the homeowner, and your dollars are best spent with the good people who have the foresight and motivation to build cleaner, sustainable, healthier homes for their communities.
Children are highly susceptible to off-gassing of toxins. Pregnant women are, too. The elderly, and anyone who is under stress or immune compromised. People who think they are healthy can be struck with an auto-immune disease that seems to come from “nowhere” after being exposed daily to toxic building materials. Allergies, to ADD/ADHD, to learning difficulties, to fatigue and the numerous other modern dis-eases that way too many people suffer from are all able to be traced back to toxins INSIDE the home [and not to mention the ones you cannot control the minute you step outside.]
Natural Clay Plaster walls are brilliant. They come in all kinds of colors, and will release “Negative Ions” into the air, creating a healthier indoor environment. Negative Ions are cleansing and very healing to the body. It is exactly what is released in a Thunder Storm and Rain Storm. It feels good to just be around when you are in a home that has used natural paints, clay plaster, milk paint, clay paints, and natural glues/adhesives.
There really is no excuse for not seeking out such amazing ways of cleaning up the environment.
Starting at home is what I have preached on my show for quite some time. When you start to clean up your home by the consumer choices you make, you will be motivated and even passionate about cleaning up the Environment in which you live.
August 11th’s show was a much needed re-visiting of the May 26th Show on Water.
1.) Our resources for clean drinking/living water are disappearing [from chemical contamination, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, petroleum/gas exploration and extrapolation, household chemical products, body care products that all get washed down the drain or seeped into our groundwater and then into our lakes, streams, oceans].
2.) How can we protect our remaining water supply?
3.) What can you do now as an educated Consumer to obtain clean drinking water and be part of the answer to restoring our water supply?
My interview with Winston Kao from May 26th is worth revisiting.
Check out his website at www.gobeyondorganic.com
Always remember that a White Lab Coat is a COSTUME. It was developed as a method to soothe patients nearly 100 years ago with the feeling of purity and life that the color white was thought to bring in the patients mind.
However, there is evidence that many patients don’t feel so relaxed around someone with a White Coat. In fact, many people experience elevated blood pressure and worry just seeing a person approach them in such a costume.
The same feelings are exhibited by your family pets. And when you are not around [when you drop them off at the Vets and think they are safe] the unthinkable could happen.
My conversation on August 4th, 2012 with Pet Advocate Julie Catalano demonstrates to my audience how clearly urgent this matter really is in our world. It hardly ever gets exposed in the “mainstream” but it is still a huge issue. “Vet Abuse” has touched many of us, and even some people who simply don’t realize that their pet was killed or suffered injuries from a person they thought they could trust.
Our beloved Siamese cat, “Mina,” was horribly killed by a ‘holistic’ and even ‘famous’ Vets office…. and they ILLEGALLY charged my credit card on file [without my consent] for the $895 bill afterwards… sneakily, they waited about a month or so to do it.
Wow. I thought we could trust a Vet who wrote a book, gets himself on Television, Radio interviews, etc.
The Smith Ridge Veterinary Center in South Salem, NY, run by Dr. Marty Goldstein really caused the biggest anguish, shock, and unthinkable pain and suffering to our 13 year old child who lost his beloved best friend on August 4, 2010 to egregious negligence. A totally irresponsible female Vet named Dr. Jaqueline Ruskin, was charged with Second Degree Negligence by the New York State Board.
Totally horrifying. The long fight to get the charges off of my card are a whole secondary insult to injury. I won’t bore you with these details, but the nasty “office manager” [who is so fat and wretched she should not be working in a "Holistic" Vets office or any medical establishment whatsoever] fought with all she had and even lied to American Express to keep the charges on my card! Can you imagine such a thing after killing someone’s cat?
This office negligently ripped open Mina’s Trachea when they were installing an intubation tube into her throat. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT? They did not practice one ounce of correct emergency measures to get air into her lungs. The New York State Disciplinary Department told me this after examining her X-Rays and files.
Smith Ridge Vet Office played mind games, and even tried to blame our Cat for their mistake! This is a true sign of Sociopathic and Deceptive behavior. Truly Dangerous.
This terrible behavior is certainly not acceptable. But it is an occurrence that happens daily somewhere in America.
Now really is the time to fight back as Consumers to protect our Pets. They deserve to be worth more than “property” and the bad Veterinarians should be subjected to the same scrutiny and legal action that a typical bad human Doctor would have to face.
Listen to the show in the Archives, and contact Julie Catalano at www.vetabusenetwork.com if you have ever suspected foul play with a Vet.
My second Guest was the very knowledgeable Medical Journalist, Sherri Kane.
Sherri has been reporting on what is now termed “Bad Science” for a few years now. She has uncovered, along with many other respected Journalists, the misinformation that is being bombarded upon the gullible American consumer when it comes to Vaccines, Chemicals, Dangerous Pharmaceuticals [that stay on the market way too long as the FDA deliberately drags its feet before removing such dangerous drugs], and everything you can imagine that is deliberately burdened upon you as an innocent consumer, whether you realize it or not.
Sherri’s message was to do your own research into natural healing. Autoimmune dis-ease is on the rise from vaccine “excitotoxins” and brain damaging neurotoxins, along with petroleum and warfare chemicals that masquerade as “Pesticides” or “Garden” helpers, etc., and bad, de-natured, GMO food.
I believe in Integrative care. Sure, technology is fantastic when needed, but you need to become well versed in the healing miracles of Nutrition, Herbs, Homeopathy, and other exciting ways to clean your body so you won’t fall prey to dis-ease.
I believe that we could really have world peace [no kidding here] if we could start to employ the common sense of utilizing God’s Garden that is so clearly spelled out for us in both The Torah and The Bible.
It’s time to protect this Garden from mass destruction by some really bad forces that aim to profiteer from keeping people sick, destroying our water supply, our air supply, our food supply, and our future.
“How?” is the question. First, do your own research into natural gardening, plant care, lawn care, home cleaning products, and even innocent things like Deodorant have ALUMINUM in them and get right into your blood stream and intoxicate your body! Read labels, and be a voice to demand that chemicals be taken out of our body care products, baby products, and our food.
This is a good start. You will be a whole lot healthier to fight back and start the revolution to demand cars and other machinery that run on water or even cooking oil rather than something that kills millions of people over wars, exhaust, fumes, and contamination.
July 7th’s show was a re-run from a Spring show, but the message to my Audience remains urgent: Our Wild Horses need our help now.
The fact remains that the current Administration under Mr. Obama has NOT been one bit “Environmental” or “Wild Life Conservators” as they had espoused [lied] to the voting American 4 years ago.
They, instead, have Mr. Ken Salazar behind the scenes giving his cronies and back room deal friends in the Cattle industry a “pass go” card to ILLEGALLY round-up and kill our majestic, NATIONAL HERITAGE.
Look at the lies and spin doctoring you see from this particular Administration alone. They say one thing, but do an entirely different thing once elected.
Mr. Obama made promises to Environmentalists and Advocates for Conservation, but instead appointed an evil entity like Ken Salazar into the Cabinet to rule with a bloody hand over the Department of Interior.
Bureaucratic corruption at its worst.
We need our voices heard. Together, I believe we can command protection for our amazing Wild Mustangs.
By the way, I have NEVER been given the decency of a written response from either the Bureau of Land Management [BLM- answers to the Department of Interior] NOR Mr. Ken Salazar’s office, NOR Mr. Obama.
And this is the horror of BIG GOVERNMENT. It works only for the “Government Elites” who act more like Czars and ignore their oath to uphold the law, and ignore democracy, and finally, ignore the American Taxpayer entirely.
Based on an 88 year old Theory by Albert Einstein, the Low Level Laser Therapy ["LLLT"] can help your body heal itself.
My interview on June 23, 2012 with Dr. Larry Lytle, the inventor of the “Q 1000″ Laser device that you, the Consumer, can buy and utilize to help take control of your wellness, is available via podcast on this blog under “Archives.”
There are Acupressure points throughout your body. The Low Level Laser can help to stimulate these healing points to heal the body. It also, as an added benefit that I love, stimulate Collagen and keep your face naturally young and gorgeous!
Everything from past injuries, Chakra Balancing, Asthma, Thyroid issues, Arthritis, Kidney and Liver Healing, Allergies, and pet care… you name it… it can help your body naturally heal!

Want to be a natural beauty? Who doesn’t?
Save your skin, and learn to read labels and demand for yourself [and your family] 100% natural, honorably made products for your body, haircare, and face!
This was my second interview with Marj Melchiors of All Natural Cosmetics, www.allnaturalcosmetics.com.
I love her brand, “Earth’s Beauty” and her web site features many all-natural brands that Marj herself scours the Earth to find and bring to you in one web site.
Marj has been a voice in the beauty industry to help stop the dangerous, toxic, downright body robbing chemical ingredients from being snuck into most creams, shampoos, deodorants, sunscreen, etc…..
Shockingly, MOST highly advertised cosmetics and skincare products actually AGE your skin rather than heal or remotely beautify your skin!
No one would ever put skin, liver, kidney, and endocrine-system damaging products onto their body knowingly. But there are no regulations regarding skin care and their untruthful claims they make in their campaigns…. so YOU need to be your own Investigator, and certainly your own self-help Navigator.
It is easy when you know what to look for, and WHERE to get lovingly and honorably made products that will heal and protect your body naturally.
“All Natural Cosmetics” is also “Cosmetics Without Synthetics” on the internet. Their website is informative, and I encourage my audience to do their own research and memorize the dangerous ingredients to stay away from.
Dangerous, Damaging, and Downright Bad Chemical Ingredients [just a few here-- sadly, there are many, many more-- remember, if you cannot pronounce it then it might very well be a lab-made chemical that can hurt you.]
Poly Ethylene Glycol [PEG-with a #]
Parafin [comes from petroleum/oil industry. Yuck.]
Lead [found in many highly advertised red lipsticks]
Mercury [found in many highly advertised color cosmetics]
Phthalates [found in chemical perfumes]
Coal and Tar Colors [mostly in hair dyes but also in color cosmetics]
Diethanolamine [DEA-- sometimes unethically proclaimed to be from Coconut sources... don't buy it.]
Sodium Benzoate [highly dangerous, and sadly, found in many "Natural" or "Organic" labeled products! Can also turn to Benzene once entered into bloodstream.]
All of these toxic ingredients are directly linked to hormonal disruption, fetal/infant deformations, learning disabilities, Kidney and Liver damage, Lung damage, nerve damage, aging, tumors, cancer, blood poisoning, and the list goes on and on.
And this is just the beginning! Make sure you protect yourself and start buying ONLY pure cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, hair color [HENNA], pet supplies, baby care, and home cleaners.
The animal testing for the many chemicals in “chemicalized” commercial perfumes, dyes, makeup, and skin/body care is horrendous. The pain, suffering, cruelty is totally unnecessary. But some big name brands do it… and you MUST be a voice to have this insanity stop immediately! Some names of cosmetic companies who should hang their heads in shame are Lancome, Estee Lauder, Garnier, Chanel, Revlon, Mac, Aveda, The Body Shop, Clairol, Cover Girl, Physicians Formula, Colgate-Palmolive… the list is huge. Just remember, if it is heavily advertised and has chemicals in it, then it has been tested mercilessly on innocent animals. Don’t buy it.
You have the right to be a natural beauty. You can control what you buy, so be a voice with your money!
And by the way, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on beautiful skin care!
1.) I use Coconut Oil [that I also exclusively cook with] for makeup removal.
2.) I also use Coconut Oil for a “warm oil” hair treatment.
3.) Take a Strawberry, mash it up and then mix it with some honey… you have a wonderful mask.
4.) Or take an Avocado for an amazing mask that will moisturize skin.
5.) Need a scrub? Baking Soda with Honey or Organic Oats with Honey and water.
6.) You can moisturize your skin with Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil…. as long as it is totally a REAL FOOD and you can actually eat it!
7.) Making a Smoothie? Great. Put some on your skin.
Chemicals are dangerous, and who needs them when you have Nature and all her amazing beauty to keep your body looking and feeling Beautiful?
