Facial Massage for Indian Bride It seems no matter how careful you are, even when shopping at natural health stores or Whole Foods, the skin and hair care products that are marketed as “All Natural” and even “Organic” are filled with toxic, very dangerous ingredients that are known carcinogens. Here are several separate product names I was shocked to find have harmful ingredients covertly tucked into them [after using them myself thinking that they were safe and totally toxin free]:

1.) Juice Beauty- Uses a preservative called Sodium Benzoate that is highly, HIGHLY toxic once it enters the skin and into the blood stream. When combined with Vitamin C, it turns into Benzene, which is even more hazardous to your health. To boot, Sodium Benzoate CAUSES AGING of the skin!!!!! Even more problematic for Juice Beauty products is that they use Vitamin C fruit juices in their products, and when combined with Sodium Benzoate, it turns into the toxic soup of Benzene. This is not “Organic” nor remotely healthy for you and your skin. It is a travesty that the “Organic” label has been reduced to what it is today. When the USDA took over the so-called standards of the Organic labeling, they both corrupted its very meaning and bent over backwards for the chemical lobby to allow such toxic ingredients to be slipped into both food and body care products.

2.) Evan Healey- Very, very shocking and surprising here. I was a HUGE fan of all things Evan Healey! Even her packaging was recycled and eco-friendly and I just adored everything about this line of skin care. But, to my horror, as I quickly re-read the label on the packaging for her Tea Tree facial wash before re-purchasing her products at the Whole Body store within Whole Foods, I was absolutely horrified to discover “Sodium Benzoate” tucked into the ingredients. I could not believe it. I was stunned just thinking about how I would slather this product on my skin thinking I was using a superior, wonderful, and carefully made product. I am so angry I will actually write this once-pure ingredient company a letter, but I will never buy this product ever again after seeing something on the label that any honest, well-run, natural company would know better to not sneak into their product line.

3.) Dr. Hauschka- Where do I begin with this one? This is clearly now a mass produced and toxic product that I just don’t even bother with, and have not touched for many years now. Their makeup line is using Talcum in their eyeshadow products and powders. This is so toxic it has been linked to ovarian cancer and other serious immune damage. It should never be used in anything for either human or animal products, but it is so cheap [much cheaper than food-grade clays, for instance], that the ‘bottom line’ is what takes precedence for even these advertised ‘natural products.’ It is even more horrifying that baby powder has been sold for use on innocent babies whose immature immune system simply cannot handle such daily assaults that enter the blood stream. There are numerous toxic poisons that are legally used as fillers and preservatives in this makeup and skin care line that I think they should be banned from Whole Foods all together.

4.) Jason’s products- From their shampoo line to their skin care to their toothpaste. Uh, NO! Everything un-natural is in this highly advertised line of “Natural” products. Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Laurel Sulphate, Propylene Glycol, all the “parabens” like Methyl paraben, and the list goes on [including highly dangerous FLUORIDE in many of their toothpastes]. No way. I just don’t even touch the stuff. Again, WHY is this sold in Health Food Stores, Whole Foods, and even online “Natural” Retailers? They should just go ahead and take their place next to Colgate-Palmolive, Clorox, Proctor and Gamble, SC Johnson, Unilever, Kellogg’s, and the dirty-dozen list of toxic chemical companies that both damage the Earth by polluting our water and air with their poisons; test on terrified animals [horrifying undercover videos abound], and damage the immune systems of their unsuspecting customers….  None of this is acceptable, but strangely, it is all legal.

5.) Jane Iredale Cosmetics- Again, totally horrifying. They sneak in very skin-damaging and immune compromising ingredients like Dimethicone, which is a plasticizer. This is a terrible ingredient because it literally suffocates your skin, and your hair. It is used to give an instant smooth appearance, but it is a very harmful chemical. Dimethicone is put into their “Amazing Base” mineral makeup and other products like their liquid makeup, and it is something that explains why I used to have these painful break-outs on my skin that had never had any such problems in the past prior to using some mineral make-ups like this brand that freely put toxic chemicals and skin damaging products into their makeup. PVP- also snuck into their mascara. This is a Vinyl product that is highly carcinogenic and should never be put next to the delicate eye nor anywhere on the body. This is used in many commercial mascaras and hair care for its ability to create an even coating and keeps emulsions from separating. It is, once again, just fine by the FDA, USDA and other corrupted agencies to use in many foods like Beer, Wine, Vinegar, commercially produced juices and even on fruits.   skin_layers Our skin is hermetically sealed and has to filter out enough daily pollution as it is… please give it a break when choosing skincare, body care, household cleaning products and even food.

*Acure Products- Although these products have mostly but not entirely clean labels, they are promoting the WRONG people to find cures to the cancers, and other autoimmune dis-eases that are caused from chemicals in skin care, hair care, body care, toothpastes/mouth wash, household cleaning products, commercially produced food products, lawn products, animal-care products, baby products, paints, nail polish, carpets, etc. They claim to give money to “research” but the problem with this is that the very same people [chemical and pharmaceutical companies] that collect money for what is wrongfully termed “research” are also the ones responsible for the onslaught of dangerous chemicals that are brought to the marketplace every year and processed into consumer products. And by the way, the “research” labs and organizations have NO interest in finding a cure to anything. They would put themselves out of their lucrative, albeit disreputable business. The organizations that use the methods of the Nazi-invented Propaganda techniques to promote their contrived platform of “finding a cure” and other such empty promises are the very ones who are benefitting from the donations, marathons, women’s walks, and other fundraising that only lines the coffers of the most evil empire on this planet: The chemical/pharmaceutical industry.

Other toxic brands that masquerade as “Natural” are Burt’s Bees, Toms of Maine, Mrs. Meyer’s, and several other brands. They are owned by large, multi-national corporations that both pollute the Earth, use toxic chemicals, then test more toxic chemicals on terrified live animals [and then legally throw out and destroy any evidence that would prevent them from bringing a new chemical to market anyway]. I have just named a few bad apples here, but many more abound as the chemical corporations/skin care conglomerates vie for a larger share of the Natural, Organic lines of body care and food.

Don’t buy it. Read Labels. Understand the matrix behind the marketing propaganda techniques.

kid-lightbulb moment

Want some good companies to start your new, eco-conscious, healing lifestyle?

1.) Dr. Bronner’s- Excellent soaps. Pure, clean, and always in my house.

2.) Aubrey- Hair care that is the most pure you will find in a Whole Foods or Health Food Store. They also make pure skin care.

3.) Bragg’s- Wonderful Food products like Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil and Olive Oil that are both, by the way, excellent for your skin.

4.) Miracle Soap- Another excellent soap but must be bought online.

5.) Egyptian Magic- a pot of bee pollen, honey, and olive oil mixed together that when you cream in your palms, is amazing for fragile skin on face and elsewhere.

6.) DeVita makeup- pure, clean and a good line of makeup that makes beautiful products that can compete with the toxic brands in longevity, easy to use, etc.

7.) Aura Acacia Organic Oils- Jojoba, Sweet Almond and a few other beauty oils that are pure for your skin and gorgeous to use with a therapeutic grade Essential Oil.

8.) Alaffia- the only product from this line I recommend is the “Africa’s Secret” balm made with Shea butter, Coconut oil, Baobab Oil, African Honey, Neem Oil, Bee Pollen & Propolis.

9.) Honey Girl Organics- Excellent skin care from Hawaii. Simple and pure.

10.) Solar Recovery skin spray– An Essential Oils spray to soothe skin after a day in the sun. I like to use it as a “pick me up” spray and to lightly spray over makeup to set.

11.) Livpurely- just pure, organic Coconut Oil.

12.) Alteya Organics- Skin care and sprays that are pure. I love their sprays.

13.) Bee Magic- Great Balm for everyday or mixing with Essential Oils, Jojoba oil, etc.  for your own beautiful skin care.

14.) 1000 Likes Carrot Oil- I always have this on hand for mixing with with anything I desire for a more beautiful morning.

There are several other smaller, hand-crafted brands that I can only get online and/or directly from the maker, and I will have another blog on this….

Pollinating Bees: All Life & Food On Earth Needs These Incredible Insects!

October 13, 2013 at 10:29 AM | Posted in A Conscious Life, Be An Eco Warrior Now, Bees, Best Practices in Business, Community Supported Agriculture, Conscious Lifestyles, Conscious Lifestyles Radio Show Blog, Consumer Choices, Pesticides are Killing Our Honey Bees!, Pesticides on Conventional Fruits and Vegetables, Think | 1 Comment

Honey Bees

Spraying of chemical fertilizers on lawns, in gardens, and on commercial/big-agribusiness crops are killing our most incredible Life Givers on this planet.

You cannot have fruits or vegetables without the pollinating Bees.

Another contributor to the alarming drop in Honey Bee colonies in the USA is the Genetically Modified Organisms [Frankenstein crops] that are grown by large Agribusinesses with American Tax Dollars, to boot!

This is a very serious mistake that our seemingly blinded EPA and Elected State and Federal Government Politicians are making by refusing to take swift action on the culprits of the killing….. and YOU, the innocent Human, are paying for it and will certainly pay for it when there is no food to eat.

The Bayer pharmaceutical company makes a commercially used Pesticide, “Clothianidin” and “imidacloprid” [both are known carcinogenic pesticides called “Neonicotinoids”] that has been directly posed as one the major causes for this steep mass-killing of our most important insects!

These pesticides disrupt/kill the central nervous system of pollinating Bees and they are also spread through the vascular tissues of plants! Thus, when YOU eat a plant that has been sprayed with chemical pesticides…. you CANNOT just wash off the exterior of a pesticide-laden fruit or vegetable and think that you are safe from this insidious poison!

Why is the USA Government placing PROFITS over SAFETY for the Environment, People, our Food Pollinators, and all life on this Earth? Whom are they really protecting? Is money and bribery worth all of the destruction that a small group of Pesticides are causing our health? What about our future?

Please check out a wonderful website that has great information on this topic: http://www.foodfirst.org

My conversation on my radio show on Saturday, October 12, 2013, with Bee Keeper, Author, and Honey Bee Activist Marina Marchese was both fun and informative. Listen to the show in the Archives section of this blog!

Check out Marina’s web site http://www.redbee.com

Be a Backyard Beekeeper! Contact your local Backyard Beekeepers Association, http://www.backyardbeekeepers.com and find out what you can do to be a voice for these amazing insects!

Also, DO NOT ever call a Pesticide company to ‘remove’ any bee colony that may have set up in your home or garden….They will simply spray them with toxic pesticides to kill them and leave YOU with the carcinogenic, DNA disrupting pesticide residue in your Garden/Yard/Office/Home!! And remember Pesticides accumulate in your body and are persistent.

Instead, contact the US Bee Removal Hotline at 888.228.1644 or visit their website http://www.brsr.org…. They safely and humanely remove and RELOCATE the bee hive so that the all-important Honey Bee colonies can continue to live and thrive.

Marina Marchese also pointed out that when homeowners are duped into spraying their homes with Pesticides and even chemical fertilizers for their lawns, they are greatly contributing to the killing of our Bees, who forage for several miles from their Hives.

Use ORGANIC fertilizers [Composting is great for this]. Marina says that Chicken manure is also a wonderful fertilizer. There are MANY Natural/Organic fertilizing companies that have recently sprung up all over the place… make it a point to find one in your local area and support such sustainable companies!

STOP the Pesticides around your home!IMG_0929

This photo was taken by me when a neighbor down the street [who lives on Wetlands, by the way] sprayed their yard last Spring.

As Marina Marchese stated in my show, this just is beyond ignorant and totally out-of-touch with the realities of how dangerous and totally destructive these pesticides are to Bees, Pets, Waterways, and PEOPLE!

Essential_Oils_700WNatural pesticides are Diatomaceous Earth, Peppermint Essential Oils and other Essential Oils like Citronella and even Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Pine, etc. You can spray this in a large spray machine mixed with water and with a small amount of mild Castile soap around your property. Additionally, there are non-toxic/organic companies that are creating businesses for online ordering as well as servicing homeowners and businesses.

There are so many safe and effective alternatives to pesticide spraying that it is truly heartbreaking to see the Consumer get duped into paying for their own families and gardens to be poisoned.

The time is now to save our Bees, and thus, ourselves.

Keep your lawn, garden, and flowers pesticide-free and Organic. Help the Bees with your Consumer & Lifestyle choices.

Mind, Body, Spirit and Food

mind,body,spirit stones

It’s easy to get confused.

Understanding how your food quality, and food choices directly affects your mind, body, spirit and entire existence on this earth [including how smart you are] is a confusing mine field of bad advice everywhere….

Except when you’ve got the 100% Truth, and you know it! My Guest on the weekend of September 15th, 2013 was Dorit of http://www.serenityspaces.org and http://www.greenlifestyles.org. 

This is my second interview with Dorit, and we always seem to have a blast together and show ends way too quickly.

For me, it has taken more than a few years to truly get the right information and learn how to decipher the wrong information immediately when you see it or hear it. There are well meaning “Natural” practitioners and even Nutrition advisors who are totally wrong in their advice to innocent people [and animals, too.]

I have been in go-nowhere discussions with these very kinds of misguided people many times. It is always pathetic and even horrifying to see them barreling down the wrong road, filled with life-costing mistakes and acid-inducing health issues.

ALL animal begotten products are ACID. ALL. This includes cheese, butter, milk, and by-products from ALL animals. Of course, eating ALL meat products creates ACID in your body. ACID = Disease. Period. No further discussion should be needed.

Meat products are for true Carnivores, like Cats. Look at their teeth! They are like little mountain peaks all the way through their mouth!

But when you come across ignorant people who don’t want to veer away from what their parents ate [somehow a  strange band of loyalty] or their man-made Religious dogmas [never a good place to get advice of any kind…. READ THE BIBLE/TORAH for yourself!] or even people who “heard” or “read” from somewhere that eating animal products is necessary…. it becomes a time for serious education and re-inforcing the TRUTH about how to obtain health, wellness, and total purity in your Spirit, outlook, and Life.

Dorit is a Raw Food Chef. Her breadth of knowledge and work with many Notable people is remarkable. Her encouragement in my own life with making my own Nut Milks for my “milk” needs has totally changed my tastebuds for the better!

I LOVE my Cashew nut milk [so easy, and creamy] and I love my Brazil nut, Sunflower nut and even Macadamia nut and Hazel nut milks. I find it easier to get Organic Cashews and Sunflowers in my area, so I just use these with great pleasure! I don’t bother straining these when I whirl them in the morning [after draining the spring water they soaked in the night before] in my VitaMix with boiling hot spring water, and a dash of Organic Vanilla Extract.

I can tell you from first hand, there is NO animal milk that can compare to the taste, satisfaction, and high-powered protein and vitamins that are in this one easy nut milk I make within 5 minutes every morning! Yum!

Cashew-Nuts-Milk

Take control of your life by understanding the FOOD you are putting into your body! It’s fun, easy, and once you start the first step on the journey to a plant-based lifestyle, you won’t look at eating meat/dairy or processed food the same ever again!

Dorit also explained the dangers of drinking processed juices you buy in the grocery store. They are filled with stabilizers, SUGAR, pesticides, and have no nutritional value since they have been processed at HIGH HEAT to
Pasteurize them.

Remember, Louis Pasteur admitted to being a total Fraud on his death bed! He admitted that the body’s Terrain [immune system] must be protected and built up rather than focusing on killing Germs.

Soda Pop. Dorit and I had a very long discussion about the terrible consequences of drinking ALL Soda, including [and especially] the “Diet” Soda.

Aspartame is a deadly poison. It was created to be an ANT poison! Want to get rid of Ants? Use diet soda.

The many KNOWN carcinogens in soda are many. But here’s a few things: the synthetically induced bubbles are toxic, the phosphoric acid is toxic to all organs in the body, the High Fructose Corn Syrup is GMO [Genetically Modified] and a known source of Diabetes and Obesity, the Caramel food color is a known cancer causing product…. and the list goes on. In fact, manufacturers are not required to list every ingredient on the label due to their lobbying for ‘Proprietary Secrets’ so they often list some nebulous like “flavor” or even “natural flavors.”

Soda-is-bad

Time for a real Change?

I believe that if we all said “NO” to Genetically Modified Organisms, processed food, processed sugar, white bread [notoriously bad], soda pop, all animal products, and pesticide-laden crops [labeled innocuously as “Conventional”], and started on a NEW path to wellness by investing in a juicer, smoothie maker [I love the VitaMix, but another one I love is the Nutribullet and the Tribest personal blender]…. then we COULD CHANGE the trajectory of this world to a place of Honor, Truth, Happiness, Harmony.

Why? For starters, we would be putting out of business the very conglomerates that seek to imprison the Consumer/Taxpayer into buying cheap, processed food that causes Illness AND Mental Illness, to boot. These foods are cheap because the lobby for these conglomerates in Washington has made it so that YOU, the Taxpayer, are subsidizing the growing and manufacturing of these toxic products! This is what is referred to as “Corporate Welfare” at it’s worst.

Secondly, if your body and mind and spirit are nourished and at peace then we would not have the increased violence, harassment, derangement, abuse that we see so prevalently today. How many of us have become nearly immune to the horrible stories we see and hear about on the News?

We can start with our Food, Food Sources, Food Wisdom, and daily practices.

As the Father of all Medicine has stated many, many Generations before us:

“Let Food Be Thy Medicine.” — Hippocrates.

When Will They Ever Learn? The True Health Dangers and Environmental Disasters of Fluoride in Your Water [and personal products, too].

August 19, 2013 at 1:12 PM | Posted in A Conscious Life, Be A Natural Beauty, Beauty without chemicals and surgery, Consumer Choices, Dangers of Fluoride and Mercury, Dental Education, Eco Living and Lifestyle, Eco Warriors, Essential Oils, Essential Oils Heal YOU, Ethics in Business, Fluoride, Fluoride Kills, Government held accountable, Uncategorized | 2 Comments

fluoride water in glass
Wow. Just when you think you have learned everything about the dangers of Fluoride, a great Voice of knowledge like Dr. David Kennedy comes along and proves that the insidious aftermath of the insane practice of Fluoridating water and Dental products is much bigger than you can imagine.

I could never blog enough about this insanity. Luckily for all of us, Dr. David Kennedy has produced more than 27 Documentaries for you to learn from for FREE on You Tube. Check out his page on You Tube under “Dr David Kennedy.”

Got tooth decay? It’s really the Fluoride. Got fog brain? It is once again, Fluoride. Got stomach disorders? Fluoride. Obesity? Fluoride coupled with really bad food choices [that also contain Fluoride]. What about erratic thinking and violent behavior? Fluoride. Osteoporosis? Fluoride. ADD/ADHD? Fluoride. Discolored teeth? Fluoride. Joint Replacement? Fluoride. Low Libido? Fluoride. Lowered Intelligence? Fluoride. Thyroid Issues? Fluoride. Skin Issues? Fluoride. Tired A Lot? Fluoride. Emotional Issues? Fluoride. Kidney and Liver Issues? Fluoride contributed to this. This is only a small sample of what Fluoride in your water and other consumer goods can do to your body and brain. IT IS A NEUROTOXIN!

You cannot name ONE disorder without having Fluoride, one of the most toxic substances on Earth, be the direct culprit or the major contributing cause of your issues along with bad lifestyle choices.

Who is to blame for this Fluoride poisoning? Dr. Kennedy pointed out that major manufacturing of Metals [like Aluminum], Pesticides, Pharmaceutical Drugs, Coal burning, and other industries have been behind the “cover up” of the Fluoride deception because their practices create Fluoride as a waste product…. and they need a place to put it rather than having it discarded as the Hazardous Waste that it is!

So, they lobbied to put the Fluoride into the drinking water [and subsequently tooth paste] of Americans and Marketed it as ‘being good’ for your teeth! Imagine such a big, fat lie being perpetuated simply through incessant lobbying efforts and an advertising campaign to dupe the public?

It is hard to wrap your brain around the deception. This very dangerous byproduct of major manufacturers has been dumped into our water AND many dental products.

Now, bathing and taking a shower are hazardous to your health! No kidding here.

All of us now need to find a water filtration system that is going to be expensive to install for the entire whole house. Why should the innocent Taxpayer have to deal with this Toxin when it is our local Townships and States AND the Federal Government who should burden themselves with cleaning up our water supplies? None of this makes any sense.

Visit Dr. David Kennedy on You Tube, and find out for yourself the incredible information that your own Dentist is totally ignorant of. This has got to be one of the biggest scandals of all time.

FluoridePoisonLabelThis is what they dump into our Water! Notice it says not to ingest?

I really have deep concern for people who cannot give their pets [and Shelters, too] pure Spring Water because of the expense. Dr. Kennedy suggests investing in a countertop distiller.

Also, make sure you get some INTERNAL grade Iodine drops [must order on the internet] and take a couple of drops in water a day. You can take this throughout the day, if needed. Make sure you put a couple of drops of this in your pets water. This both helps to kill viruses, bacteria, and boosts the immune system and also counteracts the Fluoride damage.

Let’s take a look at this commercial toothpaste label: Active Ingredient: Fluoride, which we know is a Poison.

Now, let’s look at the other toxic substances in this commercial tooth paste marketed in pretty packages to children:
Inactive Ingredients:
1.) Sorbitol: A known toxic artificial Sweetener that has been in the medical literature for more than two decades. It causes premature Cataracts, retinopathy, and can cause dangerous cases of chronic Diarrhea.This should have been removed from the marketplace many years ago.

2.) PEG-12- Poly Ethylene Glycol is a known carcinogen. It absorbs through skin, teeth, and gums very easily and goes directly into the blood stream. It is cheap, and that is why uncouth companies use it. PEG is made by stringing together molecules of Ethylene Glycol, into a larger polymer chain. Remember, Ethylene Glycol is used as an automotive antifreeze and brake fluid. It tastes sweet, much like Arsenic, and is extremely toxic. PEG causes neurological disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems. PEG can contribute to Autism, Dementia, Depression, Schizophrenia, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and similar other disorders. PEG is similar to Lead and Mercury in its neurotoxic effects as it is slow acting, and accumulates in the body. PEG also causes Kidney damage and allergy related like Hives, along with esophageal perforations. It is an industrial chemical that is used in wood treatments, paints, coatings, rubber, textiles, detergents, and toilet bowl cleaners! It damages the large intestines by killing all healthy intestinal probiotics [the good bacteria], which has a cascading effect on the body by reducing immunity. To say the least, this is not a product that should be in anyone’s mouth or body. But you will be amazed at how many company’s put this into their products!

3.) Sodium Lauryl Sulfate- A chemical used to make “suds” or give foamy effect. It damages the skin by causing corrosion of mucous membranes, causes hair loss by permanently damaging the hair follicle, and also causes permanent eye damage. And it is highly toxic to the Liver. 16,000 Studies prove its toxicity! So why is this very irritating and corrosive chemical put into commercial toothpastes, hair shampoo, and skin care? Stay away from any product with this chemical added to it.

4.) Flavor- Anything labeled with “Flavor” on the label is just another word for MSG [monosodium glutamate]. Highly damaging to the endocrine system, and is highly damaging to brain cells. This is really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what MSG can do to your body. Do not ingest or buy any products with this dangerous ‘flavor’ enhancing chemical.

5.) Sodium Saccharin- Made from Coal Tar. Originally chemically created as an Ant poison! It is also known as “Aspartame” which is marketed as an Artificial Sweetener, despite its proven toxicity. Highly toxic to the nervous system, Liver, Kidneys, Digestive System, and Brain.

6.) Mica- Aggravate the respiratory system, can cause internal lung scarring.

7.) FD&C Colors- You NEVER want to buy or use anything with FD&C colors of any kind. Highly toxic. This is artificial food coloring, and the FDA is ridiculously [and deliberately] ignorant to its inherent dangers in processed foods and consumer products. It causes hyperactivity in children, allergic reactions, induces cancer cells to multiply, and is contaminated with known carcinogens! It is an unnecessary risk to any living being to consume or use any product with FD&C dyes.

So, how do you feel about commercially produced toothpaste now?

There are so many amazing alternatives that are good for your health, it is just outrageous that most Dentists remain ignorant to the dangers of the commercial toothpastes and are clueless to the healthy choices that are readily available.

There are non-toxic tooth powders you can buy primarily made of essential oils and baking soda. There are non-toxic, “Holistic” brands of toothpaste made without dangerous chemicals and certainly without Fluoride. There are many wonderful, small companies that sell incredible dental products that are healthy for you and the planet. You will have to buy them online, but it is worth it.

Also, you can make your own with Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap, some peppermint [organic] Essential Oil, and baking soda. You can make an effective mouth wash with 3% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Spring Water.

Learn to read labels, as many of the so-called “Natural” toothpastes have now been quietly bought up by the same dubious multi-national companies that manufacture the commercial toxic toothpastes! One example to stay away from is “Toms” toothpaste… it was bought by a toxic, Chemical-minded multi-national company. Remember, the mega-corporations that have been in business to cheaply manufacture toxic products are very clever in keeping their market share by simply buying-out smaller, “natural” brands of products without the Consumer realizing it. MAKE SURE YOUR READ LABELS!

Sitting, Sleeping, and Lounging on Chemical Warfare?

Sullivan Sofa F230

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.

Check out Viesso
Also check out these additional natural furniture makers:
Ekla Home
Cisco Brothers
Eco-Terric
GreenSofas
EcoBalanza
Endicott Home

Dr. Arlene Blum’s Green Science Policy Institute

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?

Also check out Mother Jones Magazine’s excellent article on this matter: http://http://www.motherjones.com/blue-marble/2012/11/couch-flame-retardants-cancer-toxic

Cats have been besieged with Hyper and Hypo-thyroid issues after the introduction of Fire Retardant Chemicals in Furniture. Our children have been hurt by these chemicals as well and it's showing up as ADHD, Hyperactivity, low academic performance, mental and emotional disorders and other dis-eases. Is this acceptable? Should we continue to let the Chemical Industry Lobby to have their way into our homes?

vivisection 1
This is Vivisection. As ugly, horrifying, and evil as it sounds phonetically.

What’s even worse is that it is totally unnecessary for humans to advance themselves in every way possible.

The pain and suffering can be stopped with the voices of PEOPLE, good people, to stop it.

Start with your purchasing power: don’t buy animal-tested, chemical-laden consumer products.

Some of the really unethical companies that do the unthinkably painful torture on animals in the name of creating [still very toxic] chemical products for you to buy are the following:

Avon
Proctor and Gamble
Tide
Fairy
Bounty
Braun
Gillette
Head and Shoulders
Oil of Olay
Oral B
Pampers
Febreze
Pantene
Nice n Easy
Clearasil
Sure
Zest
Herbal Essences
Wella

Unilever:
Dove
Lux
Sunsilk
Pond’s
VO5

Garnier
L’Oreal
Max Factor
Lancome
Neutrogena
Maybelline
Estee Lauder
Physicians Formula
& many other chemically dependent brands

Johnson and Johnson
All pharmaceutical companies

“Private” Laboratories
Many Universities [even “UC Berkeley”– the place of supposed “Green” living and “Enlightened” thinking?]

My Guest on December 5, 2013, to talk about this terrible, shameful reality was Peggy Cunniff, Director of The National Anti-Vivisection Society. www.navs.org

This is outright Fraud. People are dying and are seriously injured from this quasi-science that has not an ounce of ethical management to police itself. Over one million people a year die from taking pharmaceutical drugs as prescribed! Does this not tell you something about the wrongfulness of testing on animals in and of itself? The false ‘positives’ and ‘negatives’ have caused pain and suffering to both the animals who are tortured in laboratories and to the people who, as Consumers, are left literally in the dark when it comes to the dangers of the consumer products they have no idea can and will hurt them.

There are excellent alternatives that are accurate, cheaper, and certainly more ethical than the practice of murdering animals for testing any products.

Now is the time to stand up for these higher technology alternatives to be implemented immediately.

vivisection 2
vivisection 3

vivisection 4
vivisection 5

None of this torture is acceptable. Aren’t we supposed to be sophisticated and peace-loving people as a whole? The wretchedness of this practice of maiming and killing animals for profit [with YOUR Tax dollars] has got to end NOW. Nothing can justify this madness that is simply the most evil of all entities on this Earth.

You can help stop this. Visit The National Anti-Vivisection Society http://http://www.navs.org and be a voice to your elected officials and to all companies that should be told you will not be swindled by slick advertising when they torture animals in the name of chemicals they want to sell hidden within their toxic products.

Try using natural cosmetics and cleaning products. You will be saving your own life and the planet to boot.

Hormones and You.

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.

Bob’s Red Mill Baking Soda is the most pure, and you can be assured it has no toxic Aluminum added! This is the ONLY product I use for personal and baking use.

#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.

Namaste.

Four Messengers

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’s incredible importance to the environment is above and beyond what any other agricultural product today can offer.

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.

Candida: Invisible Vampire

September 24, 2012 at 3:10 PM | Posted in A Conscious Life, Affordable Sustainable Food is Your Right, Be careful of all pharmaceutical drugs, Conscious Lifestyles Radio Show Blog, Consumer Choices, Health, Holistic Healing, Natural Healing, Organic Health, Take Action For Our Beloved Pets, Take Back Your Wellbeing, The Cure For ADD/ADHD, The cure to cancer, Truthful Healthcare, Uncategorized, Vaccine Dangers | 6 Comments

Candida. Most “Conventional” or “American trained” Physicians don’t know a thing about this ferocious killer, and will even adamantly deny its existence when confronted.

Every major disease you can think of…. from Allergies, Chronic Fatigue, Learning Disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Weight Gain… to Diabetes and Cancer…. the proximate cause that all of these dis-eases spawn from is Candida.

My conversation with Dr. Jeffrey McCombs on Saturday, September 22nd, 2012 unveils the truth behind this killer that almost every human today suffers from. What causes Candida to turn into a deadly Fungus within the digestive system are several assaults to the immune system:

#1.) Antibiotics
#2.) Pharmaceutical Drugs
#3.) Birth Control Pills
#4.) Processed/Genetically Modified “Frankenstein” food
#5.) Processed White Sugar and White Wheat [denatured] Flour
#6.) Petrochemicals/Pesticides
#7.) Fluoride
#8.) Heavy Metals [found in Silver Dental Fillings, Toxic Lipsticks, Processed Foods, Pesticides, Hair Color, Pollution]

Take the time to understand the underlying reasons for most diseases today.

The good news is that you can turn this around and clean your body of this killer! You don’t need to spend a lot of money going from one bad, clueless doctor to another…. you just need to know the truth and then take action to heal your body NATURALLY.

Sadly, our beloved Pets are now suffering from Candida overgrowth for all of the same reasons. The high rates of Cancer and other autoimmune dis-eases in our family pets is now staggering, and clearly, the corrupted medical system that enslaves humans has now wrapped its tentacles around the Veterinarian industry.

Living Consciously starts with knowledge and then making honorable choices that will both save your life and save the planet.

Bees Dying And Our Girls and Boys Dying: All Man-Made Disasters

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.
