Functional Versus Conventional Medicine

Functional Versus Conventional Medicine

You can’t get well until you address the roots!

Eating foods full of peticides, glyphosate, gmos etc. won’t add to your health!

There is a better way, start eating foods that are non-gmo, organic whole live foods and feel the difference!

Trust Yourself

Trust Yourself

Now there is a very large, unspoken caveat for this meme. That you be worthy of trust. And there are two qualities that are prerequisites to trust – competence and reliability. Does the person have the competence required and can they be relied upon? So if you are to be worthy of trust you must be competent and reliable. Can you do everything you would like to be able to do? Do you do everything you say you are going to do by when you say you are going to do it? Even the tasks you set yourself? Those are pretty high standards. But the closer you get to attaining them the happier you will be with yourself. This I know for a fact.

US Clean Water

I received an email that I thought worthy of asking my US friends to take action on:

Dear Tom,

We only have two days left to speak out against the EPA’s dangerous plan to roll back vital clean water protections — and we need to mobilize the biggest possible public outcry before the comment period ends on Monday. Can I count on you to help?

Please, submit an official public comment of opposition to the “Dirty Water Rule” and show the EPA that you won’t let them allow pollution in our drinking water without a fight!…

This plan would strip out key provisions from the Clean Water Act — which has protected our drinking water supplies, swimming spots, and fishing holes from dangerous pollution for nearly 50 years — so that corporate polluters can dump toxic chemicals into the rivers and streams that feed our drinking water.

NRDC is doing everything we can to fight back against this heinous rollback — and will take the fight to court, if that’s what it takes — but right now, the most important thing you can do to help is flood the EPA’s inbox with public comments opposing the “Dirty Water Rule.”

This is your last chance: Raise your voice for clean water protections today. Thank you for standing with us.


Never Feed Your Dog These Fruits and Veggies

Never Feed Your Dog These Fruits and Veggies

Vitis vinifera fruits, including grapes, raisins, sultanas and currants, are not safe for dogs. Ingestion of even a small amount may lead to vomiting, diarrhea and kidney failure, which may occur several days after consumption.1 Not all dogs are affected by these fruits, and some believe that a fluoride-based pesticide called cryolite used on grape crops could be to blame.

However, some dogs have gotten sick even after eating organic or homegrown grapes, so it’s best not to take a chance and avoid feeding these to your dog. Plants of the genus allium, which includes onions, chives, garlic and leeks, are another category that can make some dogs sick.

If large doses are consumed, it can lead to drooling, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea, which may not occur for several days after ingestion. Oxidative damage to red blood cells, causing them to risk rupturing, can also occur,2 as can weakness, rapid breathing, high heart rate, pale mucous membranes, reddish or brown urine and anemia.

That being said, in the case of garlic very large quantities are needed to be dangerous — much more than you would typically feed to your dog. Dogs can healthfully consume 1/4 teaspoon of freshly chopped garlic per 15 pounds of body weight and reap substantial health benefits, just don’t overdo it.
