So Thursday I had a scratchy throat, and for the last couple of days it progressed to a head cold . I was trying to back track and trace my steps to see where I might have contracted the bacteria. I do not like to get ill, feeling unlike me, I usually do not. My immune system defenses are low so I need to figure out how to improve it. I have been consuming, putting raw garlic on everything ! There is a huge amount of pollen in the air right now, plus wind, bad weather in various states, I’m sure that also plays a factor.
The hardest thing about a cold is that it takes away a lot of your energy. I would like to be able to say It has been 10 years since I have been sick. Experts say if we follow a regimen of nutrition, exercise, meditation(quiet time) it is a path of health and for the most part I agree, however, as we know, we all have different metabolism speeds, different heart rates, genes, age, race, environment, etc. that also play a factor in a journey to health. You have to find what works for you and pay attention to yourself.
Stay strong! Our anatomy is an amazing self healing phenomenon. My father suffered a fire burn. I look at my dad and its bothersome to see some layer of charred skin. For individuals that end up in an unfortunate burn accident or that some devil spun human deliberately throws acid or sets a human being on fire, is simply incomprehensible. I by no means am saying one is lesser of the two horrible s, the end result is still managing the burn, based on the level of injury.
When I resided in Ca I was cooking something on the stove. There was a pot with a lid, some how I tilted the lid and from the steam I ended up burning the top of my right ring finger. It was painful, so I can not imagine fire burns, chemical burns etc…covering a bigger and deeper skin area.
A couple of months ago my nephew Landon(2 years old) burnt his hands on the motor of a riding law mower, he ended up with a 2nd degreeburn. Thankfully, it did not do any permanent damage. I was present the day it happened and it is a day I will never forget, his cry of pain. He has since recovered beautifully.
On Saturday, Sep. 4th, I got a phone call that my father was in the emergency , that he had burnt himself. My father (mid 60’s)also suffered a 2nd degree fire burn. The area affected is his right side of his face, neck and shoulder. My father is no spring chicken, let us see the time it will take to heal his skin.
I have a friend who says there is a new gel on the market for treating burns, if you have been a victim of a burn or you have had experience cleaning and treating burns, I would love to hear from you.
There is a huge population of people that do not consume any nutritional value. Fast meals, microwaveable, frozen meals, fast food etc… People use the excuse that they do not have time , that is baloney! Take the time for yourself and the people you love.
It amazes me how much exercise equipment, weight loss supplements are on the market.
I have never been a fan of pharmaceuticals, I much prefer the alternative medicine route. I want to live off of the earth, everything natural on it, we are blessed with an abundance of natural healing alternatives that flourish from the soil!. I do believe that people as well as the pollution in our environment ( toxic dump sites,chemicals sprayed in the air, on vegetation ,ending up in our water supply) are the sources of unhealthy illness on our globe.
She thinks outside the box, outside of herself and the junk TV /Media tries to derail us on. It is our bodies, our minds and we are putting it into the hands of self interest groups. My friends around the globe, take charge of your own minds, body and spirit, it is all contained within yourself. Research, Research, use the magnificent internet.
Today,Poly Face, and maybe a hand full more of natural farm lands, are upholding and keeping the integrity of real farming alive (Agriculture). For farmers all over the world, I would love to hear your views on the new” mass production” direction farming has taken. My Grandfather on my mom side was a farmer.
My mom has told me stories of how her mother would provide food to their neighbors from their farm. My mom use to stand in the field and pose as a scarecrow to ward off the birds from their crops. Back in My Grandmother’s day food was more scarce, and back then, Spain was under Francisco Franco’s rule. I never got a chance to know or experience my Grandmother from Spain, she passed away when my mom was 11. I think I would have been very proud and in awe of her, she was a very strong,giving soul.
Mark Bittman wrote the book “Food Matters” , a documentary film released in 2008. The film gives you a simple look at fueling your body with natural vitamins and minerals, to fight illnesses, rather than polluting yourself with risky, many side effect, pharmaceutical medicine. Several Doctors, (they label themselves The Teachers on their Website) around the globe weigh in and speak of their experience and knowledge.
FoodMattersMovie.com Presents the Food Matters Movie Trailer
Robert Kenner , directed the documentary film Food, Inc. It is a film to bring our awareness to how food is being developed in processing plants. Monsanto has aPatent on the corn and soybean (GE) seed they are selling around the world. How do you patent a natural product? Food is already expensive, and then you get unhealthy and contaminated by it, just making it more expensive all the way around, including health cost. There is a revolving door Lobbyist have held previous jobs with the FDA or The White House , or vice versa, end up working for the big food Corporations, so how messed up and coincidental is that? Plenty !!!
Supply and demand folks, when did we demand crap for nutrition? We must have because it is served up to us daily. We have always been a big population, so why are they cutting cost at the expense of their consumers. We need to demand better food from our Food Corporations.
We have always had to provide food to the masses, so the system should get better through the years, not worse.
