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?

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.

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.
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.
Have you ever been bamboozled? Have you come to realize you were made to feel guilty, or subtly pressured into doing something… and then “woke up” to the reality that you were used, duped, manipulated?
I know most of us have been there in our lives at least a few times.
Did you ever stop to realize that your own Government, in cahoots with some unsavory characters, might be manipulating you in ways that you never thought imaginable?
Why would your own Government want to mind control you, keep you sick, lie to you, physically control what you do/where you travel/how successful you become/how you think?
The idea of “Government Elitism” is now talked about a lot on Talk Radio [but somehow absent from mainstream Television] and it would be wise to look behind the curtain to see what is going on with HAARP, toxic vaccines, the big-pharmaceutical monopoly, Chem-Trails, wars, etc.
My conversation with Dr. Len Horowitz was just the beginning when it comes to the vast information on this topic that has been well documented. Learn more and check out Dr. Horowitz’s web site at www.drlenhorowitz.com
Another great book to read is “The One Hundred Year Lie” by Randall Fitzgerald.
Dr. Horowitz believes it is not too late to take back our world and really experience love, honor, and peace. I agree.
My Guest, Winston Kao, of www.gobeyondorganic.com gave a ton of information to the Audience listening on Saturday, and now you can hear the show on podcast in the Archives section of this blog.
Swimming in Pesticides: Chlorine in pools is an unthinkable toxic equation. No other developed nation on Earth allows this blood poisoning toxin into pools.
Ozone is the answer to a clean pool without the toxins. Winston also told us about Hydrogen Peroxide as another alternative to toxic Chlorine, which is also used all over Europe and the rest of the world.
“Salt Water” pools are also not healthy, as they are misleadingly promoted as safe as Ocean water, but they are not. Check out Winston’s web site at www.gobeyondorganic.com to find out more.
What is Real Esate doing in the “Obamacare” bill?
and WHY are ALL Congresspeople, Senators, The President, and all Cabinet Members and other Government Regime Bureaucrats AND THEIR FAMILIES completely EXEMPT from Obamacare forever?
Are we now a Marie Antoinette Serfdom?
What about setting us up for a Dictatorship, one [giant] step at a time?
Why is the IRS in charge of what has been sold to the mass media as a “Health Care” Bill? Why would a financial tax bureaucracy be in charge of Health care? Hmmmmmmmmmm.
So many things don’t make sense. And everyone needs to wake up before this Identity/personhood takeover is complete.
Mr. Obama has never had a real job. Never had to work in the real business arena. He has always been a Government Bureaucrat. He believes in Big Government, and he enjoys being in the “Government Elite” where he is protected, and his family is protected.
Did you know that if you sold your house in 2013, if Obamacare is not repealed and dismantled, you will owe the Big Brother Government 3.8% from the sale of your house?
This makes sense to anyone who believes in Socialist regimes where the Serfs work and work and work and work… to pay taxes. The Government Elites conveniently exempt themselves from this as they pocket money from this unfair imbalance of power.
Look up “Codex Alimentarius” on any search engine. Educate yourself. This was signed into Law by Mr. Obama in a very covert way back in January 2012. This essentially takes ALL Nutritional Supplements AWAY from the public and, if enforced, could wipe them OFF the shelves of every Whole Foods, Health Food Store, Internet retailer, etc.
This is one more step to setting up a “Sick” society that is under a Regime, and too weakened to fight back.
Be an educated voter. Mr. Obama is trying to distract everyone with all of his “Social” issues he brings up. Granted, many of these issues ARE important, such as Gay rights. However, if you look at the history of Mr. Obama’s speeches from the past, he was AGAINST Gay marriage just a few years ago!
This guy is trying to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, in the way of his very dark and disreputable past [and present].
I just uncover the facts and bring them to my listeners. I covet my Freedom, and I am not going to live in a Serfdom, Dictatorship, Socialist regime.
Stand up now.
My conversation with Dr. Sherrill Sellman on June 9th was, for so many of us, shocking!
The Birth Control Pill is a tragedy that has entrapped women into thinking it is safe [when it is most certainly NOT] or that it helps to “regulate” menstrual cycles [when it can permanently damage your body in numerous ways]. The bottom line: Women are BIG BUSINESS for the pharmaceutical industry, and they have found a way to manipulate Gynecologists with the lie of prescribing the ever-dangerous Birth Control Pill to young women, and then onto just another re-packaged form of the Birth Control Pill to menopausal women in the form of HRT [Hormone Replacement Therapy]. It is a racket beyond all racketeering, but the money from the sale of these hormone DISRUPTING drugs along with the secondary damages from the toxicity of these drugs [e.g., heart attack, stroke, cancer, bone loss, digestion injuries, killing of natural enzymes and probiotics everyone is born with but drugs destroy]. The list is endless when you look at the residual issues the synthetic hormone pills can cause.
The Birth Control pill is part of the Hormone Heresy that has now morphed itself into the “Hormone Replacement” craze.
Even “Bio-Identical” Hormones are not the holistically right choice, as it stops your body from producing its own hormones naturally.
Dr. Sellman pointed out that when your body is toxic, and is subjected to processed food [including restaurant food] daily, weekly, monthly, then yearly… along with Xeno-Estrogens from pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, fertilizers, chemicalized hair color and makeup/personal care products… then you have a lethal combination that has pushed your body into being ESTROGEN DOMINANT.
How do you heal yourself and balance your hormones naturally?
1.) Stop using chemicals in your house, garden, yard, in your makeup and body care, and get off the Birth Control pill. Find a natural practitioner to get you safely off of pharmaceutical drugs, if possible. This adds to your body’s load of heavy metals and Liver intoxication.
2.) Choose natural and pure cleaning products [baking soda for scrubs, vinegar/water/essential oils for spray cleaning around the house], choose natural gardening products, choose Henna over chemical hair colors, choose natural/organic/artisan made make-up and skin care [lots of brands to choose from].
3.) CLEAN out your body with an Herbal Cleanse. You may also want to use a powdered Oxygen Cleanse as well nightly to really help clean your body of the daily onslaught of Xeno-estrogens.
4.) USE NATURAL PROGESTERONE CREAM. Wild Yam cream is also helpful, along with Maca powder in your smoothies. I love Maca Powder in my Organic Cacao with coconut milk every morning. YUM! You can also get Maca in the capsule form.
5.) For sweeteners: Dr. Sellman suggests ONLY Stevia and Xylitol. They come in convenient packs for travel and taking into the office, etc. I was surprised to learn, contrary to what I was taught in Nutrition School, that natural foods like “Agave” and even “Brown Rice Syrup” and “Maple Syrup” are not good choices and should be avoided on a daily basis because they are stored as fat in a body that is dealing with high Estrogen to begin with… and Estrogen is often stored in fat, so you start on a vicious circle. So, stop the vicious circle!
6.) Milk Thistle, Dandelion and Herbal Liver Cleanses. At the very least, give yourself a Liver Cleanse every 6 months. However, I take both Milk Thistle and Dandelion every day. Your skin will love you for this, and your body will better process the daily food intake and even little stresses that we all have to deal with in modern life.
7.) Stay AWAY from Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and other “over the counter” drugs for pain. These are highly toxic to the Liver and Kidneys. Instead, get some Vitamin D3 [balances your emotions, a great daily vitamin when it is a Whole food vitamin and NOT a processed, cheaply manufactured 'vitamin'.] Also, take NIACIN for any pain and a multi-spectrum B Vitmain. Turmeric is excellent for aches and pains, and headaches. The herb Feverfew is also a good choice for stress related headaches along with other herbal multi-spectrum capsules are all available in Whole Foods or a high quality health food store. The point here: GET OFF THE CHEMICALS FROM DRUG STORES! DON’T BUY INTO THE LIES THEY TELL YOU… THEY ARE SELLING YOU TOXIC, LIVER DAMAGING DRUGS FOR PAIN AND OTHER AILMENTS! USE NATURAL REMEDIES THAT ARE THE ONLY CHOICE IF YOU WANT TO LIVE A LIFE OF TRUE HEALTH AND WELLNESS.
8.) When you are detoxing, stay away from Dairy products. Choose Coconut milk, or Almond milk, Hazelnut milk, Cashew milk… many choices. You can even learn to make your own. Cashew milk is easy: you soak cashews in a bowl of spring water over night, in the morning, you drain cashews, then put into a high quality processor like the “Vita Mix” with some fresh spring water, and Voila! You have yummy, creamy Cashew milk!
On your SPROUTED GRAIN BREAD OR RICE BREAD [NO processed bread, wheat bread, etc.] you can use Coconut Oil rather than Butter. If you must use Butter, I would suggest you get LOCAL, Organic, Small Farm Butter. However, I would not recommend you have any Dairy products during your initial cleansing time.
Cook with Coconut Oil or Macadamia Nut oil. NEVER use Olive Oil for high heat or any cooking. I literally cringe when I see TV chefs do this foolish mistake… Olive Oil changes chemistry when it is heated and becomes a toxic product under high heat. Olive Oil is GREAT for you when served room temperature. Use on salads or AFTER the pasta is cooked as a tasty and wise-food choice seasoning.
A first time cleanse should take a month or so. Make sure you get a Whole Body Herbal Cleanse, a Liver Cleanse, and a Candida Cleanse. You can start the Liver Cleanse first for one week, then add in the Candida cleanse to coincide with the Liver cleansing and then finally, the Whole Body Cleanse.
It is a daily practice that you will re-establish in your life. Make each change a mindful and even joyful choice to finding a better way to healing without having to spend your money on Doctors of any kind. Instead, learn to clean your body naturally and make healing daily practices your new lifestyle.
Take control of your health by knowing what food choices to make daily and how to rid your body naturally of the overload of Estrogen that causes the Hot Flashes, weight gain, night sweats, mood swings, etc.
All of my shows build upon each other. When you see that we have been lied to and literally intoxicated with pharmaceutical drugs, Fluoridated toxic toothpastes and water, degenerated and chemicalized food, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, dead soil from big agribusiness chemical processes, toxic benzene levels from car exhaust and even home paint cans…. you can see where the imbalance in hormones comes from.
Dr. Sellman’s first book is a Gem. I keep it in my Library of books that I refer to weekly. “Hormone Heresy” is one book no woman should be without.

My Radio Show that broadcast on Saturday, May 12th, was a lively interview with Landscape Architect Peter Alexander.
Americans have been lied to. With every misleading TV advertisement that encourages the unsuspecting Consumer to apply chemical fertilizers and chemicals onto their lawn, gardens… and then having them ultimately wind up in your drinking water and the air you breathe…. poisoning both you and your pets [and all life on Earth]… the scope of the damage this has to the immune and nervous system to every living being on Earth is beyond what most of us can comprehend.
Your life literally depends upon how much you know, and how motivated you are to take action to save the circle of life that is crucial to your wellbeing.
There is nothing better and certainly nothing more healing than God’s Garden. I love sitting outside, eating Al Fresco, enjoying the butterflies visiting each flower and listening to the birds chirp and a rambling brook…. totally soothing to my senses and reminds me of this AWESOME gift of Life.
One of the world’s worst Pesticides that kills Aquatic life, poisons people, kills our pollinating Bees, causes birth defects and other horrible dis-eases… is produced by possibly the most evil conglomerate on Earth: Monsanto.
Why and How this company has been able to undermine every nook and cranny of the EPA, USDA, Congress, and even local municipalities is inexcusable. Their toxic Genetically Modified Organisms [GMO's], pesticides, herbicides, dangerous brands like “Round Up” and other killers are nothing short of Satanic. They kill and destroy.
Nothing is more concerning for the future of our Environment than these chemical weapons of mass destruction that have been re-packaged into Consumer and Agricultural products.
How to have a Natural Garden: Use Compost; make your own Compost with kitchen scraps; hire a Natural Gardener that uses Organic Gardening Techniques; add your firewood ash to compost and spread onto garden, lawn, etc…. and make sure you include your coffee grinds, too!
Borax is a natural way to rid your property and home of pests. Also, if you have Carpenter Ants, use Borax mixed with Southern ‘Grits’ that they tend to like to eat, but will die once it expands when they eat it.
Mice and other Vermin hate the smell of Peppermint. Get a spray bottle, add some cheap Vodka, water and the Essential Oil of Peppermint. Spray around perimeter of home and even use inside your home as a natural cleaning spray! You will love it.
Diatomaceous Earth is a great way to keep pests away but is safe for pets and people and also for good insects like Bees, Butterflies, and mammals like Birds and Squirrels.
You can have a beautiful, no maintenance landscape if you think full-circle and insist upon indigenous plants, trees, grasses, flowers that will require very little maintenance and have a natural immunity to any pestilence as they have had millions of years to evolve, unlike “imported” or non-regional plant species.
If you love to Garden and are growing your own produce, you might be interested in the “Companion Planting” practice for natural pest control.
Here are some helpful suggestions:
Protect your Carrots by planting them with Leeks to repel both Carrot and Onion Flies.
Plant Radishes and Kohlrabi with Lettuce to repel Earth Flies that don’t like the smell of Lettuce.
God Aphids? Plant Nasturiums around Broccoli and bunches of Chives among Sunflowers and tomatoes to discourage infestations.
Ladybugs= God’s gift to Gardeners! A natural enemy to Aphids.
Asparagus and Tomatoes complement one another. Place one row of Asparagus between 2 rows of tomato plants.
Daffodils repel mice.
Plant Yarrow as a Boarder for an herb garden as it encourages the growth of essential oils in herbs.
Onions repel Rabbits and can be inter-planted with Peas, Beans, Lettuce and Cabbage.
Cool. You can have the most healthy life and bring to life all of the many beneficial insects, mammals and herbs around you NATURALLY.
Autumn leaves are like pure Gold for your Garden and entire landscape! Why on earth some Municipalities pay big money to have them shipped out of town is ludicrous.
These leaves nourish the tree’s roots in the Winter and also act as a magnificent mulch for your garden, vegetables, and lawn as it greatly enriches the minerals within the soil.
So, if you are in a part of the world where the gorgeous Autumn leaves fall, DO NOT allow a polluting “leaf blower” to blow them into plastic bags and away from your landscape!
Instead, you can lay them out on the lawn and mow over them, and combine them with Organic compost and nourish your shrubs, trees, gardens, lawn… every aspect of the perfect circle that God gave to us is a true bounty of life.
OR, if you wish, let the leaves fall under the tree and leave it be. Your tree will be stronger throughout the Winter storms as it is literally fed at its roots with the incredible Autumn leaves it blessed you with.
So exciting to be supernatural!

My interview with Attorney Bruce Wagman broadcast on April 28th, 2012 and again on May 5th, 2012 after many outraged listeners asked for a SECOND broadcasting of this important show.
Here are just a few organizations to check out immediately [if you care about tax dollar waste/abuse/reckless laundering]:
Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary:One Great Rescue Organization With Accurate Information For The Taxpayer
The Cloud Foundation: Support Our Wild Horses And RESTORE OUR NATIONAL HERITAGE ON TAXPAYER LAND!
Wild Horse Freedom Federation: Another Great Organization
Front Range Equine Rescue: Save Our Horses and LEARN About the COVERT abuse of YOUR TAX DOLLARS!
The Bureau of Land Management [BLM], under the direction of a bloodthirsty and corrupted Cattle Rancher named “Bob Abbey” has revved up its taxpayer wasting programs to illegally round-up and kill our beautiful American Wild Horses and Burros.
This abomination and abuse of perceived power on their part is one of the most wretched “programs” that overtly wastes hard-earned taxpayer money.
These round-ups are illegal and were declared illegal by an act of Congress in 1971. What the heck is going on?
Well, when you appoint people like Ken Salazar, another oil/cattleman, to high places like The Secretary of The Department of Interior… You get more bad people like Bob Abbey and his dubious third-party “contractors” who have long histories of abuse on their public record… Add all of these elements together with an incompetent President who thinks nothing of throwing money at bad “programs” regardless of its disastrous consequences… and you have the recipe for Fraud and OVERT abuse.
My conversation with Attorney Bruce Wagman, Partner with Schiff Hardin in San Francisco, struck a chord with me and with thousands of people who heard the broadcast.
Many people are aware of Obama’s abuse of our tax dollars, ridiculous big-government programs, and Czar-appointed behavior, but they had NO IDEA that Obama was THIS BAD!
A joke, a song, a two-step, a scheme, a pretentious act of Diplomacy does not cover nor conceal the truth of the actual behavior and choices any person makes.
The same is applied to Mr. Obama and his list of unqualified, corrupted Appointees to a failed Cabinet with people like Ken Salazar left to literally kill and destroy without one iota of concern for the public outrage at the destruction and bloody trail of horrifying slaughter and egregious waste.
Look at the graphic photos in this website on the truth behind the covert horse slaughter of our beloved horses:
Just Say Whoa!
Photographs of Horse Slaughter And How To Be A Voice To Stop The Betrayal
Prior to Obama duping me and so many others in the 2008 election, he told reporters that he would put an end to horse round-ups and commented on his disapproval of anything so inhumane. Oh, really, Mr. Obama? And now what is your rhetoric with Ken Salazar running loose in your Cabinet?
Let your voice be heard. Email, Call, Write, Join Horse and Burro Advocacy Groups and empower yourself and our future.
My next conversation in this radio show was with Attorney Alexis Baden-Mayer of The Organic Consumers Association.
They have a wonderful Newsletter that I love, and their website alone is both informative and motivating: www.organicconsumers.org
Alexis told us about the dangers of Pesticides in our food, and now the incredibly frightening dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms.
Once again, Cabinet Appointee to The Department of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, an unimpressive supporter and former employee of the big Agri-business industries– has sold out the American Taxpayer and given a big, fat free “PASS GO CARD” to DNA damaging and human cell killer companies like Monsanto and other big Agri-business, GMO monsters.
Sorry, I cannot suppress my disgust and horror of such abuse and deception at the Taxpayer and Consumer expense.
Why have our Organic, small Farmers who take pride in the quality of their products and care about the Earth, been harassed and threatened by the Big Agri-business companies with no help from the US Government?
Why are GMO’s not required to be labeled in Grocery Stores [at the VERY LEAST] and WHY on Earth are GMO’s even approved by the corrupted USDA [also under Tom Vilsack's watch]?
This is dangerous to the health of the planet, to all living beings, and certainly to the future of our food quality and Nutrition.
Remember, you CANNOT be healthy without healing foods. This is impossible.
It is disturbing to see the Propaganda of misrepresentation and outright lies today with Michelle Obama planting an Organic Garden in the lawn of the White House, as though this is going to smooth over the betrayal of our food supply to the millions of unsuspecting people who buy their groceries that are NOT rightfully, truthfully labeled as “Toxic” “Pesticide/Agent Orange Dangerous” or “GMO Frankenstein Food.”
See the irony? See the double-talk? See the Propaganda? See the spin-doctoring?
Don’t be fooled.
We are the people who have to stand up for REAL FOOD and stop this Frankenstein-food disaster from unfolding beyond the wretched damage it has already done.
Small Farmers are being relentlessly pursued, SUED, harassed, and forced to close-up their Farms as a result of the Genetically Modified seeds blowing in the wind and contaminating their Organic crops.
How crazy is this? The US Government does NOTHING to support or protect our Organic, Local Farmers and THEIR RIGHTS but they give taxpayer money, bailouts, and corporate welfare to these dangerous, environment destroying, monolithic, reckless, aggressive, arrogant, chemicalized, life-destroying companies?
What is Mr. Obama thinking? Why is someone so corrupt as Tom Vilsack and every knucklehead he oversees and hires at the USDA given a reign of terror over the American consumer, farmer, body of water, and all life?
The time is now to fight back. Regardless of your personal Political viewpoint, you cannot ignore these facts. They are surprising and truly shocking, but you need to know about them to do something to save your own life, the future of your heritage, the future of all food sources.
My Guest on May 5th, 2012, Susun Weed, gave us a lot to consider when we walk by our neighborhood pond, and even in our own yards and Gardens.
Susun was interviewed after a second broadcasting of the interview with Attorney Bruce Wagman, an Advocate for our Wild Horses and Burros.
You can find Susun Weed on her website Susunweed.com
I have one of Susun’s five books: “Healing Wise”, and I use it as a reference manual to learn more about the herbs growing around me and how to utilize them for healing.
It’s fun to recognize something you used to think was a weed, including the Dandelion! The Dandelion is a very powerful kidney and liver healer. I buy this herb in the dried ORGANIC/Wild cultivated form, along with Milk Thistle, and I take it every day.
My interview with Susun and all of my Guests is available on Podcast on this blog.
Enjoy. Empower. Engage. GET ANGRY ENOUGH TO TAKE ACTION.
