Getting things in order

This definitely comes under the heading of “things to do in the New Year,” i.e., organize, downsize or simply simplify things. And by things we mean all the stuff that occupies your home.
Downsizing the Family Home is a guide to help you figure out how to go through all your stuff and clear it out. Even if you’re not looking to downsize your life into a smaller residence, it should help you to free up needed space where you live and turn it from a cluttered look to a calmer, open atmosphere.
This book is recommended by AARP for older people but also for younger ones who want to help their parent(s) to get their things, particularly personal and family mementos, properly managed. Tactics include recycling, donating, selling, tossing but, more importantly for some items, passing them on to other family members where and when appropriate.
This is a journal, a workbook, a guide, and even a scrapbook for making this entire process go as smoothly as possible. You might just want to consider this for yourself or a family member. It’s really good to get these kinds of things sorted before its too late.

Say NO to sugar

Is sugar making you fat and sick?

Some people believe the reason we associate sugar with feelings of being loved and nurtured is because breast milk from our mothers gives us our first taste of sugar in the form of lactose. However, there’s more to it than that…

Sugar ALSO gives us stress relief … both an emotional and biological stress release … when we’ve allowed ourselves to get TOO HUNGRY. We face peer pressure from family members and work mates who “push” sugary treats on us, even when we protest…

And too often, it’s just EASIER to eat a sugary treat than it is to prepare a healthy snack or meal. So how DO you quit sugar to lose weight and protect yourself from the laundry list of associated health consequences like diabetes, cancer, inflammation, eczema, heart disease, depression, and so much more?

Science has proven, sugar is as addictive as cocaine. And it’s making us fat and sick.

The Grow Network and Sharon Porter, a certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant, is offering a brand-new online program, “Conquering Sugar”, designed to walk you through a 21-Day Sugar Detox program using a powerful process of education, support, and daily hand holding. All of this is designed to work like “rehab” by eliminating triggers, providing emotional support, and helping you create healthy new habits.

The first session kicks off on Monday, January 8th at 4 p.m. CST. Why not make 2018 the year you reclaim your health by kicking the #1 most addictive substance in the modern food chain.

Click here to get all the details and bonuses and if you enroll before January 10th, you’ll get a special discounted price to this important program on conquering your sugar cravings (and look for the special bonus that allows you to enroll a friend so you can both help each other to stay on target in removing sugar from your daily diet).

Alternatives to Dentists

I just plain do NOT like to go to the dentist… It’s just plain uncomfortable, unsettling and costs hundreds and even thousands of dollars to be treated, well, not like a person.

And I do not like that a visit to the dentist means being exposing to a ton of toxins… and, god forbid, antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Here’s some examples of what’s going on:

Research from 2013 showed that repeated x-rays of your teeth, without a neck shield, puts you at risk of developing thyroid cancer? (Why do you think the technician scurries away behind their shield?)

Or that in 2016, 30 children in California contracted a bacterial infection from a dentist’s office? Now, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), outbreaks at dentist’s offices are rare, as opposed to hospitals certainly (yuk). However, the CDC admits that even though there are recommended guidelines to prevent bacterial infections, many dentists just do not follow these guidelines and procedures to the letter.

There’s also the fluoride issue.  There are many adverse effects of fluoride ingestion:

  • Brain. Scientists have found dementia-like effects and the possibility of lower I.Q. levels.
  • Thyroid. Fluoride is an endocrine disrupter, which can lead to problems with judgment and intellect, depression, not to mention weight gain.
  • Bones. Fracture risks may increase with fluoride ingestion. A recent study by Harvard scientists found a link between fluoride and a serious form of bone cancer in males under 20 years of age.
  • Kidneys. People with kidney disease have a higher risk of fluoride toxicity.

In 1951, the American Dental Association said, “there is no proof that commercial preparations … containing fluorides are effective in preventing dental decay.”

Bottom line: fluoride won’t keep your teeth healthy and could pose a serious health risk.

Plus, then there’s a host of other toxicity issues:

  • Fillings made out of plastic, resins, and amalgam (metal).
  • Crowns and bridges that may contain cancer-causing nickel.
  • Dentures that can include the neurotoxin cadmium.
  • Implants that include titanium, known to cause headaches, migraines, and immunity issues.
  • The polishers hygienists use have been shown to REMOVE tooth enamel! (Are we trying preserve and BUILD our enamel?)

This is just a 50,000 foot look at the potential toxins you’re exposed to at the dentist’s office. And with the fact that there are new dental products being released all the time, it’s impossible for all dentists to keep up with all these new developments. That’s why I thought you’d be interested to learn about a 100% natural system of dental care…With secrets for literally HEALING your teeth!

These dental care methods are completely natural. They include no harmful toxins like fluoride. They also empower you to consider reducing your visits to the dentist, not only saving money, but lowering your exposure to antibiotic resistant bacteria that are too frequently found in medical centers.

With this information, you learn how to HEAL cavities, how to get your teeth squeaky clean, just like a dental hygienist, and even re-grow tooth enamel, the protective armor of your teeth.

As someone who is interested in supporting your right to choose natural health care, I thought you might like to see this, too.

101 Toxic Food Ingredients

kiwi, healthy, food

Food. Love it. Got to have it. Makes me feel good. Or does it?
Food really is at the heart of our health. Now to be honest, breathing and sunlight also provide critical components for our health but it is food, which is purely a conscious choice, that sustains us day after day after day. As you can see from my last two posts, there is a huge mainstream interest in understanding what we are getting as food from seed providers, growers, meat providers, fast food, pre-packaged food and more. This is incredibly importance but most people still eat and choose what to eat purely on auto-pilot.
While we are not providing medical advice here, we do believe in educating ourselves about the important things in life. Like being healthy. And happy. And fulfilled.
In that light, we offer this particular product if you’re also on the path of managing your own health and happiness. It’s called 101 Toxic Food Ingredients by Anthony Alayon. He has has decided to bring the use of these dangerous chemicals in our food to our awareness and educate the public on how dangerous they are. And what’s especially sad is that many of these toxic ingredients are banned in Europe but allowed in the U.S. Even many multi-national and U.S. food producers comply with European Union GMO-labeling agreements while fighting any U.S. legislation requiring the same.
An old latin proverb, “praemonitus, praemunitus” seems to apply in this instance. Forearmed is forewarned. Arm yourself with the knowledge that will help you make the right decisions and actions. Eat healthy and Bon Appetit!
