Since we are surrounded by artificial sweeteners, chemicals, drugs, dyes, Electro-Magnetic Frequencies (EMF), fertilizers, flavorings, food coloring, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, medications, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, preservatives, radiation, synthetic compounds and vaccinations that harm our health we must be vigilant.

Understand the more choices we have the greater our chance and probability of success.

  • Until you understand that almost all Over The Counter (OTC) and prescription medicines sold today are synthetic chemical compounds based on natural compounds occurring in nature you are subjecting yourself to adverse reactions and side effects. Mother Nature provides a wide range of natural foods, herbs, minerals, organisms, plants and water which have proven benefits and track record of being anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, anti-septic, anti viral and pro-biotic (for life). Our creator provides everything we need to be happy, healthy and in harmony when we learn to listen to our inner wisdom.

Whether it is the cereal company saying there cereal is great, or a sports figure saying they drink or eat a junk item or even a non for profit saying they will do research to eradicate cancer use your common sense to follow the money and review the results.
  • Understand if we can put a man on the moon why is it we are not beating Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, Fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, Lupus, MS, Parkinson’s and other diseases after billions of dollars have been spent in research. Could it be that there is a hidden agenda behind the scene to keep the money, profits and salaries flowing to benefit the organization at the expense of our good heart, intentions and wealth. Could it be that the answers and all you need are within you now and that there is a way when you are committed to healthy habits and a healthy lifestyle. Something to think about.
  • Understand that synthetic chemicals and compounds all have dangerous side effects and toxins. Cleaning chemicals, fertilizers, fragrances, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, larvacides and pesticides end up polluting the air, foods, soils and water we need for survival.
  • Understand that we need quality time to re-balance, re-energize, refresh, regenerate, relax, rejuvenate, renew, restore, rest and revive our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual  health.   The quality and quantity of our restful and restorative sleep is vital to our health, productivity and well being.
