Personally I do strength training and stretching.  I have a few dumbells (cheap at local stores) and a couple different stretch bands. You can get a great workout with these, and you can find routines on the web for free. Climbing stairs is also a great aerobic workout. My washing machine is in the basement, so I carry laundry baskets from basement to main floor, to upstairs bedroom. My heart is a pumping after that.  ;D

Years ago when Michael and I were together the things that helped me the most were
Warm purified water in the AM
A few slices granny smith or pippin or fuji - apples
Freshly made veg juice about twenty min -half hr after that
A leisurely stroll around in the AM
Yoga stretches about 3x per week
some trips to the gym weight bearing exercises
light jogging
jacuzzi sauna
We alternated our yoga routine - sometimes including the Five Rites - alternated these with the running and weight thing.
Bowl of whole grains slow cooked with pieces of carrot, garlic etc. and sea salt cooked in.
And/or a slowcooked jar of Aduki beans. Note: He cooked the grains and beans for us in a half filled enamel pot on a gas stove. Raw grains and beans put into glass jars. Fill rest of the way with purified water, garlic etc.  He either put a piece of carrot or garlic or ginger in each jar - YUMM!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Glass jar cooking: Bring to boil reduce heat cover and simmer. Often we would cook it all night and no problem. Regular household gas stoves good for that. Would have to practice doing that again to post a more exact recipe. The idea is start with cold water in the jars of grains or beans and cold water in the enamel pot. Let it come to a light boiil and immediately turn it down. Cover. Often Michael would start our food about eleven at night. We would get up at dawn and check it -it was fine. Turn it off and pack it and take it to work with us.
Naps when I felt it.
working part time with him - no brainer non stress work we both needed that for a time.
plenty of pm rest
cuddles - I highly recommend these
Not sure what was wrong with me but I feel like it got cured. we re-built our health (it broke down later for both of us when he had to go north
for his NWS job but we never gave up on the idea of getting healthy together.)
Another time another life but meanwhile I feel inspired to start over. One daughter
and I have a fitness membership again just across the highway so going soon.

Linda I used to do a whole lot of walking, schlepping, carrying and physical work and enjoyed it.
Did hundreds of miles on stairs from a couple places I lived and also helping my parents who had a two- story house.
Knees can't take it now so the pounds have piled up. Will try to do more.
Swimming and light housework seem like all I can do now but I am thinking yoga and tai chi will help. Oh yes you mentioned
the strength training that is a good idea no matter what.
That would help a person use their legs and knees better and take strain off of joints.

Another thing that seemed to really have a healing soothing affect on my body was our "vegetable feast." Seasoned with sea salt and either olive oil or Ghi (ghee, clarified butter, etc.)
Michael would take big enamel pot put purified water in it about a third of the way full.
On the bottom he would put the heaviest veges. It would either be potatoes, or some kind of turnip or daikon. Usually potatoes. He didn't eat potatoes but I found they made me feel better.
After the potatoes had started simmering he would add chopped carrots. About fifteen minutes later he would layer some cabbage or other greens, sprinkling on the sea salt then and gently stirring it. Often he would drop in some whole garlic cloves the last few minutes.
There usually wasn't much leftover water - he was good at estimating how to steam it all.
So good. The ghi made it really special.
If I were to round out the meal I'd have lightly heated Essene bread with a little cream cheese but often the veg fest did it for me.
In those days I didn't eat much sugar and the essene bread, grains and potatoes and other root vegetables handled the carb craving.  Also the daily use of complex carbs such as carrots and some carob and honey and nuts got me away from refined sugar.
I went off wheat again then and our grains were spelt, kamut, amaranth some barley and millet. Usually the spelt and kamut. Sometimes a little mixture.
The aduki beans made a meal in themselves.
Ocasionally I would stuff some chocolate in my mouth, but I only weighed 120 pounds.

A wealth of free healing information and videos please check it out.
Put it on my Facebook thanking my daughter for sending it to me.

Thanks again for the great alternative health and nutritional info from Dr. Sandra Cabot and also from Margaret Jasinska ND http://www.liverdoctor.com/index.php. (http://www.liverdoctor.com/index.php.) The Liver Doctor

Some of this info I knew but a lot I didn't know especially about the exact supplements which will help with underactive thyroid and/or iodine definiciecy. I had some kelp but wasn;'t using it nearly enough. Stably on it also I had the good liquid minerals and good D3 and d supplement but again wasn't taking enough. Soon will get the other supplements. Not expensive. I hope everyone in our family and all your friends will view these videos and use the info,

Stayin alive in earth changes stress:

I strongly recommend people get the kelp, selenium, multi vite minerals (I like liquid) and other substances mentioned in the Liver Doctor videos. A person doesn't have to have a diagnosis of a liver condition in order to benefit from this information. As far as I am concerned this is for everyone. These substances combat stress, help clean out and nourish the liver thyroid so everything else will function better, hence -stay alive.
BTW I am in the process of implementing these things and it's helping me. I do take a good multi vitamin and mineral liquid, 100 mg of Conzyme Q10 -CoQ10; 60 mg kelp.
Copying below a comm from my daughter in the  UK who found this info for me. A person can have an iodine deficiency or a thyroid not operating at optimum, even if lab tests are :normal" so some of my grown up kids and I have many hypothyroid symptoms.

Here are some recommended amounts you asked me for.  To start with:
Title: Re: Ways to get stronger and boost your immune system
Post by: Yowbarb on February 16, 2010, 07:48:26 AM
PS I juice nearly day with my Vitamix now including flax which is part of the program.
The juices vary
Some combinations I make for myself and my hard working Exec daughter:

Ice
small amount filtered water
A little bit OJ and/or some soymilk  - OR - some dark juice. We like cranberry grape and pomegranate best.
Couple teaspoons flax flakes
Bananas fresh or frozen slices
frozen cherries
Celery
carrots
tomatoes  (not for everyone)
and/or apples
romaine lettuce leaves/
Greek Yogurt, sometimes the low sugar fruit kind too

Tips
I get the romaine leaves nicely packaged in bulk at Costco. Just takes a rinse.
Easy to use.
(I get the little baby carrots in bulk at Costco to speed me up on the process)

PS I add the liquid vit mineral liquid
Sometimes I add the D3 liquid.
Tip for those who want to get some cod liver oil but can't abide the taste there are some natural cherry flavored ones. Have tried some - good. Also the flavor of frozen berries bananas etc. covers up a lot of the vitaminy flavors. Not everyone will want as much natural carb in their drink as we add but lots of combinations to try. The yogurt and flax sort of balance out the carb too.

Breast cancer video
 good info on preventing it helping increase odds of survival. Very good gals who do these free videos:

Note from daughter;
The cod liver oil I mentioned which is high in A & D is quite important for people who are overweight, because they store it in their fat instead of it being in their bloodstream where it should be preventing cancers and going the body good.

PS from me I am on special D -D3 liquid now got a good deal Costco.

This link is to the book site where a person can get such books as The Breast Cancer Prevention Guide. This is not only for women read on below! (Men's prostate health.)

[link to www.cabothealth.com.au (http://www.cabothealth.com.au)]

The book tells how to help prevent the disease with foods and supplements, how to prevent a recurrence, how to help the disease from spreading and increase the chance of survival. By Dr. Sandra Cabot
and Margaret Jasinska ND

Important notes
Vitamin D deficiency - which is common in the modern world - is one cause of breast and other cancers including prostate.

The chemicals which surround us are estrogen mimickers leading to these cancers.

Beneficial phytoestrogens from plants protect the cells from the onslaught of too much estrogen, whether it's from the body or the estrogen mimickers.

Overweight epidemic has a hidden danger: Vitamin D deficiency!
The vitamin D tends to be stored in the fat and not get to the bloodstream where it is needed.

Forgot to mention:
Beneficial plant phytoestrogens which protect the cells
(such as breast, ovaries and prostate)
are found in these foods:
Flaxseed you can grind it or get the flakes
Seeds
Nuts
Legumes

A lot of people, unless they are vegetarians and/or shop in the health food store will tend not to eat these foods at all!!
Buy some of these foods and eat them. It's not all about what you don't eat - add these to your diet and the diet of those you love.

Probably a lot of men who don't eat the nuts for fear of fat in their blood but some in moderation will give them quite a bit of protection from prostate cancer.

Also Beta Prostate is a great product. I recommended some to a friend and he got his numbers back into the normal range in just a month or so. It has 100 times of the ingredient found in saw palmetto, from a different plant source, blackstrap mollasses.

Men and women not so different - men also get the estrogen mimickers from the artificial chemicals in a lot of household and hygiene products and they are also deficient in Vitamin D.

They will benefit from the seeds nuts legumes and flax seed ground, the D and other substances mentioned in the films about liver health.

I take this now D3 get it at Costco good price along with the liquid vit min stuff.

I juice in the AM now - put some ground flax from the store right into it.

BTW Town Hall folks, if you see this same info and post on another forum it was me who put it there. This is info I got from my oldest daughter and from going to the Liver Doctor website,

People used to know more about many parasites and how to gt rid of them - that seems to be true.
Most doctors will not try to prevent or treat these things and the labs will miss a lot of them.
The material covered is not the whole body of knowledge but there are a couple tips which probably do not cost much... important. Wild Oregano and also fresh raw papaya juice. Two methods.
Here are some excerpts from a site I just found which is sharing a lot of knowledge on candida, various parasites and methods of getting rid of these conditions.
http://www.livelongercleanse.com/page/dysbiosis (http://www.livelongercleanse.com/page/dysbiosis)  Live Longer Cleanse.com
Everything the rest of this post is a quote: "... the book Beating Lyme by Constance Bean, that there are only a couple of labs in the country that have microscopes powerful enough to see them, which is why 80% of the tests given for Lyme disease are false negative."

"Lyme disease is also an epidemic that is at the core of a great deal of degenerative disease of "unknown origin" and causes untold misery and suffering for countless thousands of people who may have it for decades without being given an accurate diagnosis, which is exactly what happened to me.

It is called the great immitator, for it imitates numerous diseases of "unknown origin" such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, ALS (Lou Gehring's disease), and lupus, to name a few. According to Dr. Klinghardt and others, it is also behind the rising epidemic of childhood autism. In my case, it caused what was falsely diagnosed as Rheumatoid arthritis for 25 years. As Lyme disease is caused by multiple factors, not just parasites, healing it requires an intricate and advanced protocol. For more information about how I healed it, as well as other alternative approaches, please read my general information page on Lyme disease.

To discover if parasites are the source of your symptoms, you will need to be tested by a doctor. Each type of bug needs a different kind of test as well as its own unique pharmaceutical treatment, so you may need to seek the services of a physician or naturopath to get rid of them, as healing from a bacterial or parasitic infection can be quite tricky. However, since medication comes along with a whole host of side effects, as I found out when I took Flageyl for Blastocystis Hominis, which [Flagyl] caused horrendous stomach pain, you might want to try a natural remedy first.

Ridding the body of heavy metals and environmental toxins is one way to overcome parasites. Both heavy metals and environmental toxins damage cells. Because parasites are particularly attracted to damaged flesh, when you rid the body of heavy metals and environmental toxins you deprive them of their food supply. Once they are deprived of their food supply, herbal remedies can easily kill them, but you need to know what you are doing. Best to seek the aid of a natural healer if you want to go this route.

In the book Live Food Juices, Dr. H.E. Kirschner states that a raw papaya diet is effective for killing parasites that live in your gut. As papayas, (including the seeds, which can be dried, ground, and either encapsulated or sprinkled on food),  are very high in enzymes, the enzymes are able to digest the parasites that live in your gut. The formula would be nothing but fresh, raw papaya juice for six days, followed by six days of regular vegetable juice, and then six days of papaya juice. This should also be accompanied by enemas and colonics.

In addition, wild oregano oil is reputed to kill most parasites.

Products such as Oreganol or Oregamax are excellent for this purpose. The raw oil should be diluted in olive oil so it does not irritate your skin. It can then be rubbed along the lymph nodes on either side of the spine from the base of your skull to your tail bone, which is where many viruses and parasites hide. As with all essential oils, you can also rub it on the bottom of your feet, where it will begin to effect you systemically within seconds. In addition, you can take wild oregano internally in the form of gel caps, as well as put a couple of drops of it directly under your tongue. For difficult parasites like Borrelia burgdorferi from Lyme disease, you may have to do this for many months in combination with other remedies before you see the results you want. As always, I believe a multidimensional approach is best. Again, see the page on Lyme disease for signs, symptoms, and additional ways to kill these unwanted critters.

Dr. Klinghardt, whose knowledge I highly respect, reccommends rizol oils for killing parasites. These are ozonated oils that release oxygen into your system slowly. This aids in the detoxification process. These ozonated essential oils are made out of herbs that are known for their parasite killing properties. His protocol is quite involved, extensive and intricate so it is best to view his information first-hand by going to his website."

Yowbarb Note: I  do not know which products are best. I recommend getting a stock of anti parasite substances and some pamplets or print out directions, and keep it on hand for your group to use in the aftertimes. Even better people get as healthy as they can before the tough times ahead.

from the Liver Cleanse site - this looks like part of the solution to many hidden health problems:
" Products such as Oreganol or Oregamax are excellent for this purpose. The raw oil should be diluted in olive oil so it does not irritate your skin.

Again, I am not plugging any particular product or site. Here is another one to look at. Farther down is a med site.
I say if it is not terribly expensive have some products around and store some for the future.
This one is Humaworm : https://humaworm.com/RG_s_Medicated_Cream.html (https://humaworm.com/RG_s_Medicated_Cream.html)
and they deal with a variety of parasites and conditions.
- Yowbarb    BTW A person can order their own prescriptions and stock up all they like...
I have used this site. Not sure how much at a time you can get.
This is a common generic form of anti parasite rememdy. Presumably strong but Wikipedia said 100 mg may not do it. Best to learn how to use it. Caution with kids get doc/ advice

Hi All speaking of ways to get stronger... preparing for the future...

I just found out something - health info of which I had a general idea but not the whole picture like this -
from a site Linda had posted. (I knew there were estrogen-mimicking chemicals in the environment.)
The knowledge of foods which trim down the belly fat could a real life saver.  Excess abdominal fat can be very dangerous,  especially if a person is under enormous stress, such as a Planet X crossover, and especially if he is caught without medicine.  When I say medicine I mean like cholesterol lowering, blood pressure med and heart meds. It has been known for a long time that a variety of vegetables helps a person's health. Now we know these specific vegetables also help eliminate too much fat on the abdomen: broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, etc.
 8)  A good thing.

http://www.truthaboutabs.com/fat-burning-veggies.html (http://www.truthaboutabs.com/fat-burning-veggies.html)
Chemicals that force your body to hold onto belly fat
Quote from the article:Something you may have never heard about is that certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, cosmetics, etc can react with your body and make your body store excess abdominal fat.
These chemicals are known as xenoestrogens.
Xenoestrogens are chemicals that you are exposed to (and are hard to avoid in the modern world) that have an estrogenic effect in your body.  Excess exposure to these can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women. So these can wreak havoc in the body for both guys and gals.
These estrogenic chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis can stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many other problems (including cancer risks in the long term).
So here's where this specific class of vegetables comes in handy...
One of those cool tricks that I teach my clients that hire me for nutritional counseling is the use of cruciferous vegetables to help fight against stomach fat.
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, etc. contain very specific and unique phytonutrients such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that help to fight against these estrogenic compounds...
And by fighting against these belly fat stimulating estrogenic chemicals, this is just 1 more step in helping you to win the battle against abdominal fat!
So there you go... just another excuse to do what mom always told you and eat more broccoli!
I've really learned to like brussells sprouts in the last year too... Melt a little grass-fed cheese on them and some garlic and they're great!

Friend,

In the trouble hours the only thing that hold a stronger bond than mankind is your children. Prepare the children they will be your luggage and savior. Reach deeper into your spiritual self to help you to adjust to the new enviroment, you can build up your spiritual side as early as now. Do not limit yourself to just your physical being. The fast food and fast car life will take over decade to rebuild, that goes for tv, internet, cellphones, drugs, and shopping malls.

I mentioned or emailed my kids about the special vegetables....and the chemicals and the belly fat...sort of in passing to son but he gobbled
down all his veges (carrots cauliflower broccoli etc.) Sea salt olive oil and low fat butter type stuff helped him like to eat them.

Hi All
This is some info I got from someone close to me. It's good news because it is apparantly a pretty cheap way to help one's body and health. Pineapple.
It's funny because many years ago my Mom had told me in Scandinavia a lot of the people have nothing but pineapple part of the time. Mom
said that balances out the really rich food they tend to eat there.
(In the Northern countries with long winters a lot of the people have heat - producing, highly caloric foods like goose liver, pork etc.) She said
it helps them drop a few pounds pretty easily and balance out that rich diet. I am not sure if they still do that over there. "The thing to do, back in the early 1970s." I never really tried it more than once...not sure why. I didn't eat pork anyway and was a vegetarian and already not fat but in later years I should have tried it...

So then years later I had found out pineapple is one of my "Highly Beneficial fruits" for me because I have Type O blood.
I am currently adding a frozen tropical fruit mix with pineapple in it to my morning juicer drinks. Just haven't been eating very much pineapple.
In years past I had noticed I felt better when I ate all the pineapple and I could. (Watermelon is another one of those foods I found out a long time ago.)
So here is the email I got and I spoke with her on the phone too about the pineapple cleanse. She sounds so much healthier too...
Next time I stock up going to get a case of pineapple for my kids and I.
I recommend people who like pineapple and would like to try a way to drop some belly weight and detoxify to try this. 
There's more to it, too. Read on! - Yowbarb

...
......
Came across this data by accident on a way to do a parasite cleanse of all things and tried it.  Wasn't intending to do a cleanse but thought I might need one to feel better as I keep feeling tired. I tried it and felt amazing.  I blended 1 pineapple and drank it down (the whole thing) on an empty stomach 30-45 min before breakfast, and again before dinner for three days in a row.  Man, I felt great.  I thought all the sugar from the pineapple might not be good for me, but that's false data.  The pineapple is full of good nutrients and water, so it nourishes and hydrates you (and your skin).  It made me (and my skin) feel great.  The enzymes (bromelain) in it helped my digestion and I felt instantly better.  After three days I felt really cleansed and my stomach went down about two inches.  The reference is from a raw foods website blog with directions to follow at:  (3rd page down) http://buddingplanet.com/2008/09 (http://buddingplanet.com/2008/09)

It's particularly known to kill tapeworm, but it says it kills all parasites.  It's not a medical reference or anything, but it made me feel a hell of lot better, and now I make sure I drink a blended fresh pineapple on an empty stomach for energy as the bromelain in it is amazing and it soothes my stomach and gives me energy.  I know you know about bromelain as a digestive aid, but it says it's a powerful healer for surgeries and wounds, arthritis, and an effective anti-inflammatory agent.

The University of Maryland Medical Center has a very good reference on bromelain with this data here:  http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/bromelain-000289.htm (http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/bromelain-000289.htm)

The further research I did about parasites from veterinarian practices and medical references basically stated you can get roundworms and tapeworms from, amongst other things, cats.  Also pinworms are common and highly contagious apparently amongst the population apparently, and parasite can lead to obstructions in the intestines and malabsorption of the nutrients from what you eat if your gut is full of parasites which can cause you to eat more to try and get the nutrients it needs.  I feel great after doing the pineapple parasite cleans.  Twas delicious too!

You probably already know this data, but since you have several cats, thought you might like to have this data.  Here in the UK they recommend worming your cat every three months, so I'm doing that now!  They can transfer their parasites to you causing Toxocariasis, defined here:  http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/229855-overview (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/229855-overview)
with photos here:  http://cal.vet.upenn.edu/projects/parasit06/website/demos/lab4_demo.htm#04 (http://cal.vet.upenn.edu/projects/parasit06/website/demos/lab4_demo.htm#04)

I know your cats are contained so not exposed as much to the eggs and parasites in the soil and in wild prey, but mine go out and eat mice and pigeons at night - they bring them to me regularly on the doorstep!

Love

Linda, I know what you mean I had never thought of it for thoses uses, either. I mean, it is understood that fruits are cleansing but this goes beyond. It makes sense because of digestive substance in it. Bromelain.

Ed, wow, that's wonderful. We are glad you made it out!
One good thing about Thailand the people have a lot of fruit to eat there.

Back in the 70s I met the most beautiful, completely healthy looking person, ever. She stopped to ask me
for a diaper (I was pushing my baby in a stroller and she was pushing her baby.) She wasn't poor in fact
she was very upper class but she was desperate for a diaper at that moment. I was happy to help.
I couldn't help but say to her, she was so healthy looking. She said it
is because of all the fruit they have there... Her skin was completely radiant and had not a pore showing. Like a goddess.

Ed and Barb,

How lives are interconnected....  Pineapple has its origin in southern Brazil and Paraguay. Since early 1500 years it started to spread all over the world via some famous navigators. Eventually it landed in Thailand and you were helped by this wonderful fruit.

It is part of many people's diet and very much used by those on a diet. It has almost 0 points (2 slices) in Weight Watchers program.

Here, just before Xmas time, it sells for nothing, all ripe, pure fruit sugar.... delicious when served cold in slices.

I would suggest pineapple juice blended with mint leaves. This is specially refreshing for this heat wave you, friends of the northern latitudes, are being confronted right now.

There is one single drawback to this fruit: unlike bananas, pineapple does not get any riper after being harvested. So, look for good signs (and bad signs as well) that indicate the pineapple is ripe before buying. A good sign is that it should be heavy to your sense of volume x weight, and their pointy green leaves should be easily pulled from the fruit.

Coenzyme Q10 - also called, COQ10
This is something my mother taught me about. She and my father began taking it and took it for
about fifteen years. My mother lived to be ninety and my father made it to 86; both had their independence.
Although their health was not perfect those were good, long lives. I have been on it, on and off since 1986. I was so sick once I had to go home to them for awhile. My mother had just gone to a health food store and seen the book listed below and bought the COQ10.  It helped me.
COQ10 is known to have the ability to reverse disease and it has anti - aging effects. It is known to help the heart, the lungs and the gums which have disease. Other good effects.

"It has been confirmed in clinical studies involving thousands of people who are in ill health?for example suffering from heart disease or diseases associated with weakened immune responses?that if supplements of CoQ are administered, their internal levels of CoQ rise and the disease states diminish as the body acquires renewed energy to fight them off."

By the way, regarding a supplement or a natural product to help your health: 
Something is better than nothing.
It is possible to buy a bottle of Q10 for as little as $12 at a health food store or drug store. Those
are the 10 mg capsules. I know it's easy to not buy something because it is an expense. If you are feeling lousy get at least a ten mg bottle and take six to ten per day with food. It strengthens the body.
I recommend getting it in bulk in a big store but you do what you can.
There have been times when I managed to get a couple of bottles of the 10 mg at a Dollar Store.
It is something to get on an stay on, for life. Have it with meals. - Yowbarb

Carlos, thanks very much for the idea of pineapple juice blended with mint leaves, to help
during the heat waves. The heat is brutal in many places in the US.  Lately here in Florida, my son and daughter and I end up needing some potassium supplement or sometimes the Emergen-C drink with electrolytes. A couple times
we had early stages of heat exhaustion.
Once when we were still in Los Angeles, California,  we had some 111 degrees (yes, one hundred and eleven degrees) heat sneak up on us.  It was in an area of L.A. county blocked from the ocean breezes.
My daughter went out to her car -  I went with her. I was holding the thermometer and it said 111.
I said, "Cool off the car first!!" She was headstrong and in a hurry and jumped in.  Later, she told me she had to fight to not pass out while driving.  After she left I went out back and was washing off the barbeque grill in a tub when I suddenly felt like I would pass out. I carefully walked right back into the house and no more outside for a few hours. In general, I have very high tolerance for the heat but not always. It is up to nearly 100 here every day then it clouds over and we have a thunderstorm and lightning and rain. Well, we will try the pineapple and mint.  I am thinking that unbearable heat will be part of the earth changes in some places for a long time.
In Rio you get some ocean breezes, yes?
Thanks,
Yowbarb

Barb,

We had our worst summer this January / February (hottest months in Rio, do not come, unless for carnival) in many years. However, because we are close to the sea, our max reading top 104 to a 106, inland, and anything from 94 to 100 in neighborhoods closer to sea.

The sea breeze is almost constant, except for a few terrible and horrible days.

You may be wanting to say that the above temps are OK for a summer. I say, they would, if humidity were not that high during summer. I wish I could wear short pants to work. At least I do not have to wear suits all of the time. Ten minutes out of air conditioned areas is enough for your clothes starting to cling to your skin.... I say to everyone. Rio has a wonderful climate from mid April to end November. During the other months, forget it.....

Thanks, good info

I used to do some yoga every morning and then at Bally's Hollywood 3x a week, alternating with either light jogging or weight staining. Not real strenuous but it all helped, particularly the Yoga. My MIchael taught me some Yoga at the gym which amazingly enough practically flattened my stomach. When I removed certain foods and did just a little yoga the stomach went down which is always a good sign something is working.
I need tot ry to get back to it. Good luck to everyone in finding a routine that works.. If you are still trying to get started, U R not alone.  ;)

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR DOSAGES AND RECIPES

http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/acvinegar.html#DRINKACV 

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR DOSAGES AND RECIPES

Revised 10/01/2008:
As you know, Earth Clinic has recommended the standard 2 teaspoons in 8 oz of water 3x a day for years now. For more severe conditions, we recommended 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water 3x a day. We now think that less vinegar, more water is an optimal way of taking apple cider vinegar daily unless you are treating an acute condition like acid reflux, cough, bronchitis, or sore throat (in which case the stronger concoction of 2 TBS ACV to 8 OZ of water 3x a day recipe is suggested).

For daily maintenance, weight loss and pH balancing, we now suggest the following:

2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar
16 ounces of water
Sip, don't chug!

We suggest 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in 16 ounces of water that you'll sip throughout the day, rather than drinking the whole concoction at once 3 times a day. You will be keeping your pH in a constant, alkalized state by sipping this highly diluted dosage. Usually 1-2 tall glasses of the concoction are all you'll need each day.

If you drink a lot of water throughout the day, consider adding just a splash of apple cider vinegar to your glass/container each time you fill it up, rather than drinking the one, 16 oz glass of acv and water mentioned above.

For the record, we are not big fans of adding baking soda to apple cider vinegar, nor are we fans of adding any kind of sweetener to the acv/water solution. The baking soda works great for some people, but causes severe side effects in others.

Also, we know the Bragg brand is the most popular apple cider vinegar on the market, but we've had just as good results using Whole Foods' organic and Trader Joe's organic apple cider vinegar.


02/17/2009: Stacie from Apple Valley, CA replies: "I saw that Trader Joe's brand was recommended on this site, however their ACV is NOT raw, it's pasteurized, which kills the beneficial enzymes..."

----------------------------------------------------------
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RECIPES

Standard Dosage: 2 teaspoons of ACV in 8 oz of water. Add honey to taste.
Acute Conditions: 2 tablespoons of ACV in 8 oz of water. No honey.

Note: 2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar may be too much apple cider vinegar for some people . We suggest you start with the standard dosage and see how your body responds to a teaspoon or two of acv. If all goes well, you can up the dosage over time if you feel a need a rise.

ADDITIONAL EARTH CLINIC RECIPES

In summer months: Add 1/4 cup of ACV to a quart of water. Add ice cubes. Drink this on a hot summer day, especially before working out. Your body will feel very cleansed.

In winter months: 2 TBLS of ACV in a mug filled with hot water 3x day. Are you used to drinking tea or coffee during your long commute to work? Try this instead -- you will feel energized but not adrenalized. Add a few shakes of cayenne pepper if you REALLY want an energy lift!

To detox: 2 TBLSP of organic ACV in a 1 or 2 Liter filtered water bottle (ie Smart Water, Evian, etc). 2 TBLSP = 1/8th cup. You can add more vinegar than this amount, however, make sure you dilute it with plenty of water. Do not add a sweetener. Drink this solution throughout the day. The solution will be cleansing your system and kidneys all day long. That's the point.

There are several things you will notice within a day or two of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar: your allergies will disappear, your face will have a healthy & youthful glow, you will look & feel more VITAL, you will have consistent energy, and you will more easily digest your food.

We believe that apple cider vinegar is probably the best (and cheapest) detoxifier for the body. As such, it is should be considered a critical component to the fountain of youth!

Replies04/15/2009: Kristen from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA replies: "I have a question. Why do you NOT recommend putting any sweetener in the ACV? I was taking 2 tablespoons in a bottle of water for my allergies for the last 2 days, and could barely get it down. While my allergies went away (amazing!), I do not think I can make myself drink this every single day without something to help the taste. Today I started with 2 teaspoons of ACV in 16 ounces of water, as you recommend, but I added a tablespoon of organic Grade B maple syrup, which helps a lot. Is there anything you DO recommend that helps the flavor, without detracting from the benefits? Thanks so much for this extremely helpful website."


EC: Just trying to avoid adding more sugar to one's diet! However, most readers on this site seem to add one kind of sweetener or another.

04/16/2009: Kramer from Richmond, VA replies: "I know this seems strange but I don't mind the taste of ACV. I've been taking a tablespoon of honey and a few minutes later a tablespoon of ACV. The honey coats my throat and it tastes fine. Is there a problem with taking it all at once rather than drinking it with water? It's so much quicker!"


EC: Many acv "old timers" report taking it straight!

04/16/2009: Georgie from Grove City, Ohio USA replies: "I always add my ACV to tomato juice instead of water. It tastes way better plus I get an easy way to get a serving of healthy vegetables too! And I don't add sweetener. Being a diabetic, that solves alot of problems."


04/26/2009: Montylyn from San Antonio, TX replies: "Thanks for the advise given on how to take ACV.V-8 is what I will be using. I hope this is okay. montylyn"

06/06/2009: t from nyc, NY, USA replies: "You can also add stevia as a sweetner its natural w/o adding calories "


06/16/2009: Mama02girls from Moundsville, WV replies: "Great Apple Cider Vinegar recipe!!!

I had trouble swallowing the ACV in water so here is a recipe that I think tastes like lemonade and really makes it easy to drink.

one cup water
2 Tbsp. ACV
two packets lemon powder (It's all natural ground up powdered lemon sold near the spices- it comes in a box of 18 packets-ask your grocer- the regular grocery stores carry it, it comes in orange
and lime, too!
two packets Stevia Powder (health food store or regular grocery store)

This tastes like regular lemonade with a kick to me! I do suggest that you drink the regular apple cider vinegar in water first, that way you can appreciate how great and normal this tastes! Good luck!"


08/10/2009: Cgm from Claremont, Ca replies: "Re: Recipe from Mama02girls

Thank you so much for your recipe-it actally tastes good-my husband likes it too! I couldn't find lemon powder, so I just squeezed about 2T of frest lemon juice in it's place...thanks again."

10/20/2009: Sharik from Arcata, Ca replies: "I have, for years, had a disintegrating gall bladder and, because I am allergic to anesthesia, have chosen to live with it. When I have an attack, I use 1/4 Cup ACV in 8 oz. of organic apple juice and the attack goes away within minutes (usually 15). I keep small bottles of apple juice around for just such times. When I use it for a cleanser or for any other reason, I also use apple juice as a sweetener, usually the frozen kind. Just pour a little into your water bottle, along with the ACV and fill with distilled water. For some reason it makes it much more palatable. Hope this helps those who find it difficult to take with water alone."

03/03/2010: Andreia from Greenville, Sc replies: "Ann from Elizabethtown, KY... What else are you doing to loose that kind of weight since Jan? I juice, but however i have never used ACV in my juice. I am very interested in doing this and following your regimin. I am so tired all the time, I have been to dr's after dr's and they all tell me is i'm just lazy and nothing is wrong. I have had thyroid issues as my entire family has some kind of Thyroid issue. Anyway, can you just update me on your status, if your still loosing, what other methods are you trying to loose weight, i found this site because of the herb Rhodiola, this was in this months issue of womans world mag and i was interested in trying it.. i need energy bad.. I will try just about anything at this point to feel better.

Thanks!!! you can e-mail me at harleyrose26@yahoo.com"



03/12/2010: Jessica from Milwaukie, Oregon replies: "This is a reply to Andreia from Greenville, Sc.03/03/10: Check how much Biotin you get on a daily basis.biotin is an enzyme cofactor that assists in the release of energy from carbohydrates and in the production of fatty acids. It also assists in activating the energy transfer molecule ATP. I always felt my body was not creating enough energy! Looking into deficiances I found my daily intake of biotin was way short. Even with my daily multivitamin I was still only getting 5% of my RDA. I now take 1000mcg of biotin once daily and have loads of energy!"


05/13/2010: Nessa from Shanghai, China replies: "About the being tired comment-I was very tired for years. The test to see if I was anemic came back negative but after years I did figure out it had something to do with a lack of protein from meat in my diet. Since I started eating meat protein I've felt more "normal", not so tired all the time."


05/25/2010: Harriet from Federal Way, Wa, Usa replies: "Another comment about being tired. I, too, was exhausted and my GP said my thyroid was 'normal'. Went to a specialist who did different tests (Free T3, Free T4, TSH and Thyroid antibodies) and discovered I had Hashimoto's. Within a week of treatment the exhaustion left. But I developed it again a couple of years later. My new GP said my iron levels were fine, but when I went to the thyroid doctor for my next blood work I asked him to check the ferritin levels (ferritin is your 'savings account' of iron). Anything below 10 is anemic and a woman needs around 50. Mine was 3. I was given an iron infusion. Turns out I had been on Prilosec for years for acid reflux from a hiatal hernia. Two months after the iron infusion (which made me feel like a new woman) I had surgery to correct the hernia. I can't remember exactly how it works but the Prilosec prevents your body from making something necessary for the processing of iron from your food, while preventing something else, yadda yadda, the upshot is I was horribly iron deficient because of the Prilosec. Since the infusion and surgery my ferritin is normal (4 years). When you visit a doctor because you are tired and he says you are lazy it is time to find a new doctor."


07/03/2010: Marty from Normandy Park, Wa. replies: "For the lady who is often very tired and wants to hear what others do for energy........I had Epstein Barr/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 2 years and the following helped me immensely:pharmaceutical liquid DHEA (after having my DHEA levels checked as the levels were low), vitimin B-12 injections through my doctor were amazing and gave me the energy of a young person again,and lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidobacterium bifidum/latis boosts by energy levels as well. I am just beginning ACV for acid reflex and have been amazed that something so simple is actually helping me and taking the horrible acid feeling in my chest away. God Bless You."


10/30/2010: Kristi from Arlington, Wa replies: "My son had a wart on his hand for over four months. We took him to the doctor three times for three different treatments. It never helped. I finally did some research and found many people suggested putting ACV on the wart, so I figured it was worth a try. I soaked a cotton ball in ACV, put it right on the wart, covered with a bandage and waited to see the results. Four days later, it fell off and the hand was healing. Not everyone will have the exact same result but I'm totally convinced that ACV is a great cure!! "


11/14/2010: Mike T from Flower Mound, Texas Usa replies: "My question is about tap water. If I mix the vinegar with tap water and then drink it throughout the day, does the chlorine in the water harm the beneficial organisms in the Mother?
I actually don't mind the taste at all, but am concerned that I may not be achieving the full benefits of the vinegar."


11/19/2010: Jp from Portland, Or replies: "I STARTED accidentally with 2 TBS. In a 8oz glass and drank 4 1 glass in morning and 3 glasses between 6-10pm! ... For 4 days. Way too much! I am hypoglycemic and I feel terrible!! It was the beginning of a liver cleanse ruitine and I have decided to stop entirely. What can I do to get my blood sugar feeling normal again. The things I am doing are drinking lots of water, exercising and eating vegetables, but I still feel bad. Any suggestions? Thanks! "


11/24/2010: Shelley from Gold Coast, Queensland Australia replies: "Fluoride is highly damaging to the thyroid gland. Pure water is a must... The enzyme poison effect extends to our genes; DNA cannot repair itself, and chromosomes are damaged. Work at the University of Missouri showed genital damage, targeting ovaries and testes. Also affected is inter uterine growth and development of the foetus, especially the nervous system. Increased incidence of Down's Syndrome has been documented. Fluorides are mutagenic. That is, they can cause the uncontrolled proliferation of cells we call cancer. This applies to cancer anywhere in the body; but bones are particularly picked out. The incidence of osteosarcoma in a study reporting in 1991 showed an unbelievable 50% increase. A report in 1955 in the New England Journal of Medicine showed a 400% increase in cancer of the thyroid in San Francisco during the period their water was fluoridated. My particular concern is the effect of fluorides on the thyroid gland

Perhaps I may remind you about thyroid disease. The thyroid gland produces hormones which control our metabolism - the rate at which we burn our fuel. Deficiency is relatively common, much more than is generally accepted by many medical authorities: a figure of 1:4 or 1:3 by mid life is more likely. The illness is insidious in its onset and progression. People become tired, cold, overweight, depressed, constipated; they suffer arthritis, hair loss, infertility, atherosclerosis and chronic illness. Sadly, it is poorly diagnosed and poorly managed by very many doctors in this country. What concerns me so deeply is that in concentrations as low as 1ppm, fluorides damage the thyroid system on 4 levels.

1. The enzyme manufacture of thyroid hormones within the thyroid gland itself. The process by which iodine is attached to the amino acid tyrosine and converted to the two significant thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and liothyronine (T3), is slowed.

2. The stimulation of certain G proteins from the toxic effect of fluoride (whose function is to govern uptake of substances into each of the cells of the body), has the effect of switching off the uptake into the cell of the active thyroid hormone.

3. The thyroid control mechanism is compromised. The thyroid stimulating hormone output from the pituitary gland is inhibited by fluoride, thus reducing thyroid output of thyroid hormones.

4. Fluoride competes for the receptor sites on the thyroid gland which respond to the thyroid stimulating hormone; so that less of this hormone reaches the thyroid gland and so less thyroid hormone is manufactured. These damaging effects, all of which occur with small concentrations of fluoride, have obvious and easily identifiable effects on thyroid status. The running down of thyroid hormone means a slow slide into hypothyroidism. Already the incidence of hypothyroidism is increasing as a result of other environmental toxins and pollutions together with wide spread nutritional deficiencies. 141 million Europeans are at risk

One further factor should give us deep anxiety. Professor Hume of Dundee, in his paper given earlier this year to the Novartis Foundation, pointed out that iodine deficiency is growing worldwide. There are 141 million Europeans are at risk; only 5 European countries are iodine sufficient. UK now falls into the marginal and focal category. Professor Hume recently produced figures to show that 40% of pregnant women in the Tayside region of Scotland were deficient by at least half of the iodine required for a normal pregnancy. A relatively high level of missing, decayed, filled teeth was noted in this non-fluoridated area, suggesting that the iodine deficiency was causing early hypothyroidism which interferes with the health of teeth. Dare one speculate on the result of now fluoridating the water?

It also displaces Iodine in the body.. **********************************************************
Try having 2 teaspoons in a cup of water with half a teaspoon of honey, I have just read from alot of people it is really hard to keep down, after having it now for a few weeks, it almost tastes like weak cordial, and its all a mind over matter. I discovered Apple cider vinegar when my cat became sick with a Urinary Tract infection, upon giving him a teaspoon in his wet tuna mix, and a bit of water, he was happier in a matter of hours and is completely normal now. To everyone seeking a detox or a trying to lose weight, I can assure you this works. But make sure you use only pure water."

One cup of blueberries a day does a lot to help a person's health and contribute to longevity.
Source: The Dr. Oz TV show   

http://www.doctoroz.com/

From Dr. Oz site:
Dr. Michael T Murray Answered:
The health benefits of blueberries are due mainly to anthocyanidins. These compounds exert exceptional antioxidant activity. In fact, when researchers at Tufts University analyzed 60 fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability, blueberries rated the highest.
One of the practical applications of this antioxidant activity may be in the protection against Alzheimer&aos;s disease. Researchers have found that blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age-related conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease, in animal studies.
Currently, the most popular medical use of blueberries is in improving vision and protecting against age-related macular degeneration. This use was stimulated by the fact that during World War II, British Royal Air Force pilots consumed bilberry (a variety of European blueberry) preserves before their night missions. Based on folk medicine, the pilots believed that the bilberries would improve their ability to see at night. After the war, numerous studies demonstrated that blueberry extracts do in fact improve nighttime visual acuity and lead to quicker adjustment to darkness and faster restoration of visual acuity after exposure to glare. Clinical studies have shown good results in individuals with sensitivity to bright lights, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. Additional research also points out that bilberries and blueberries may be protective against the development of cataracts and glaucoma, and quite therapeutic in the treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and peptic ulcers. Blueberries were also traditionally a popular remedy for both diarrhea and constipation. In addition to soluble and insoluble fiber, blueberries contain tannins, which act as astringents in the digestive system to firm up a loose stool.
Blueberries also promote urinary tract health because they contain the same compounds found in cranberries that help prevent or eliminate urinary tract infections. To cause infection, bacteria must first adhere to the mucosal lining of the urethra and bladder. Components found in cranberry and blueberry juice reduce the ability of E. coli, the bacterium that is the most common cause of urinary tract infections, to adhere to the mucosal lining.

 Dole Nutrition Institute Answered: In a USDA study, blueberries ranked fifth in total antioxidant capacity per serving out of more than 100 common foods. The highest levels were found in wild blueberries, however, which ranked second. Anthocyanins and flavonols are responsible for their antioxidant activity, allowing them to fight free radical damage, strengthen tissues and blood vessels, protect eye health, and ward off varicose veins, ulcers, hemorrhoids, heart disease and cancer. Tufts University researchers have found that blueberries can also slow, and even reverse, age-related brain decline in animal studies. And, like their little red cranberry cousin, blueberries contain compounds that may reduce the risk of urinary-tract infections.

Source: Hulda Reghner Clark, RN PHD who wrote The Cure For All Cancers, The Cure for Aids, etc.
She has page after page of natural concoctions for cleaning, dishes, hygiene even shampoo etc.
I didn't get into it fully at the time because of all the items that needed to be ordered online. Nowadays it would be easier for me to do that.

I think it is washing soda and borax in the dishes. Got the dishes really clean in plastic dishpans in the sink. then I would put them in a rack and pour boiling hot water on them. It leaves a thick layer of stuff - on the dishpans - which needs to be wiped off but that's no big deal.

For awhile I had my environment fairly well de-chemicalized. It got so I could really smell the chemicals or perfumes when they were nearby. ...
For awhile I put my regular dishwashing powder, all cleaning chemicals and or paints out in a shed.
When a person has cancer it is the first thing they should do. Even the candles - best to purchase non chemical soy candles. No doctor will ever tell you that. And they MUST know better, by now!!! Only a doc of naturopathy would taell  you to get the chemicals out of your house..

I never had a diagnosis maybe I am somewhat cancer-resistant - but it is a good health habit anyway. I posted all this in another Topic, Dollar stretcher.  Realized the info should be here. When you even partly dechemicalize your environment, about three weeks later - try walking in a big supermarket near all the cleaning stuff and plastic packaged items :  Whew!! it about knocks you over, that toxic smell.
My oldest friend had cancer and she was willing to try alternative methods and I tried to get here to come stay with me after I got all the chemicals out of the place. Her docs told her to "not take anything other than her medicines," and of course you can figure out how well that went. She always intended to try and kick it alternatively but they kept telling her to "not take stuff. "
She had started to feel beter on algae and the algae digestive enzymes the wormwood and black hull etc. She tested positive for some kind of cancer in her blood. After a short while even halfway following my suggestions no more cancer in her blood. Then dropped it all... Later her docs convinced her what she was doing had "masked the cancer," but no - she was on the road to a cure but instead chose to follow her docs.- Bless her, that didn't help her.

Recipes for Household Cleaning
excerpt from The Cure For All Diseases
© 1995 by Hulda Regehr Clark, Ph.D. N.D.

"For Laundry
Borax (1/2 cup per load). It is the main ingredient of non-chlorine bleach and has excellent cleaning power without fading colors. Your regular laundry soap may contain PCBs, aluminum, cobalt and other chemicals. These get rubbed into your skin constantly as you wear your clothing. For bleaching (only do this occasionally) use original chlorine bleach (not "new improved" or "with special brighteners" and so forth). Don't use chlorine if there is an ill person in the house. For getting out stubborn dirt at collars, scrub with homemade bar soap first; for stains, try grain alcohol, vinegar, baking soda.

For Dishes
Don't believe your eyes when you see the commercials where the smiling person pulls a shining dish out of greasy suds. Any dish soap that you use should be safe enough to eat because nothing rinses off clean. Regular dish detergents, including health brands, are now polluted with PCBs. They also contain harmful chemicals. Use borax for your dishes. Or use paper plates and plastic (not styrofoam) cups.

In The Dishwasher
Use 2 tsp. borax powder pre-dissolved in water. If you use too much it will leave a film on your dishes. Use vinegar in the rinse cycle.

In The Sink
Use a dishpan in the sink. Use 1/4 cup borax and add a minimum of water. Also keep a bit of dry borax in a saucer by the sink for scouring. Don't use any soap at all for dishes that aren't greasy and can be washed under the faucet with nothing but running water. Throw away your old sponge or brush or cloth because it may be PCB contaminated. Start each day by sterilizing your sponge (it harbors Salmonella) or with a new one while the used one dries for three full days. Clean greasy pots and pans with a paper towel first. Then use homemade bar soap."

"Floor Cleaner
Use washing soda from the grocery store. You may add borax and boric acid (to deter insects except ants). Use white distilled vinegar in your rinse water for a natural shine and ant repellent. Do not add bleach to this. For the bathroom floor use plain bleach water - follow the label. Never use chlorine bleach if anyone at home is ill or suffers from depression. Use grain alcohol (1 pint to 3 quarts water) for germ killing action instead of chlorine.

Furniture Duster and Window Cleaner
Mix equal parts white distilled vinegar and water. Put it in a spray bottle.

Furniture Polish
A few drops of olive oil on a dampened cloth. Use filtered water to dampen.

Insect Killer
Boric acid powder (not borax). Throw liberal amounts behind stove, refrigerator, under carpets and in carpets. Since boric acid is white, you must be careful not to mistake it for sugar accidentally. Keep it far away from food and out of children's reach. Buy it at a farm supply or garden store. It will not kill ants.

Ant Repellent
Spray 50% white distilled vinegar on counter tops, window sills and shelves and wipe, leaving residue. Start early in spring before they arrive, because it takes a few weeks to rid yourself of them once they are established. If you want immediate action, get some lemons, cut the yellow outer peel off and cover with grain alcohol in a tightly closed jar. Let stand at least one hour. Use 1 part of this concentrate with 9 parts water in a spray bottle. Mix only as much as you will use because the diluted form loses potency. Spray walls, floors, carpets wherever you see them. The lemon solution even leaves a shine on your counters. Use both vinegar and lemon approaches to rid yourself of ants

To treat the whole house, pour vinegar all around your foundation, close to the wall, using one gallon for every five feet. Expect to damage any foliage it touches. Reapply every six months.

Flower and Foliage Spray
Food-grade hydrogen peroxide. See instructions on bottle

Moth balls
I found this recipe in an old recipe book. Mix the following and scatter in trunks and bags containing furs and woolens: 1/2 lb. each rosemary and mint, 1/4 lb each tansy and thyme, 2 tbs. powdered cloves.

Carpet Cleaner
Whether you rent a machine or have a cleaning service, don't use the carpet shampoo they want to sell, even if they "guarantee" that it is all natural and safe. Instead add these to a bucket (about four gallons) of water and use it as the cleaning solution:


Wash water

1/3 cup borax
 Rinse water

1/4 cup grain alcohol
2 tsp. boric acid
1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
or 4 tsp. citric acid
 
Borax does the cleaning; alcohol disinfects, boric acid leaves a pesticide residue, and the vinegar or citric acid give luster. If you are just making one pass on your carpet, use the borax, alcohol, and boric acid. Remember to test everything you use on an unnoticed piece of carpet first."


I get Borax, Olive Oil Oval Soap, Baking Soda and many more food-grade products from NaturalHealthSupply.com.

How about running up and down stairs?  Also, lately I've been very concerned about increasing balance.  I wonder if you stand on one foot, will that train your body to have better balance?  My line of thinking is, if you fall and break a hip because you lost your balance, who will set your hip if the nearest doctor is miles away?  Or, you are out in a field by yourself? (in the aftertimes).

Yes I think standing on one foot would help balance.  I can no longer do the whole sun salutation now because of my knee
injuries.
One thing I still do once in awhile is The Tree yoga position.  ;D

A little note on substances which kill/discourage parasites.
These things are cheap, could be bought in bulk... should be part of human diet in the Aftertimes when we many not have fancy schmancy bottles of herbs. (Good to have the bottles but these things will definitely help.)

Part of daily or at least bi - weekly diet:

mustard
Louisiana Hot sauce and/or
Cayene pepper
raw rice  (dults) chew a little
pumpkin seeds
fennel (Finocchio) 

Yowbarb Note: Mild tea made of fennel you can give small smount even to toddlers I have done this. This anaesthizes the pinworms and some will come out and be visible.. better to get rid of whatever you can ...
Source a macrobiotic book...
Title: Re: Ways to get stronger and boost your immune system
Post by: Yowbarb on December 07, 2011, 11:06:24 AM
fennel tea
and fenugreek...
among other health benefits these discourage/get rid of/kill parasites...
A Japanese macrobiotic cure for pinworms is to eat a handful of raw rice in the morning.
Care must be taken to not choke on it and not for everyone...
Worth a try for adults...

That's wonderful about the fenugreek, just learned about that a couple days ago.
Another thing I learned many years ago when my oldest girl was a toddler and I was still nursing her. I used to cook whole grains a lot and millet was one of my staples.
My Dad stopped by and he said on the farm they used to give millet to the hogs to help them have more milk and milk for longer.  ;D

BuddhaKitty this would be a good new Topic - especially valuable in one of the womens' Boards.
Will have to post a link.
Re nursing I learned quite a lot from my sister in law at the time she mentioned La Leche League and quickly shared all she had learned when she had her baby, my niece. Then when my baby was born at least I had a clue.
Then when my first baby was newborn my mother came to stay -she was like an angel and she transmitted to me all she knew. There was a lot she knew and I did not knew until she told me after my baby was born. I like to think of it as information transmitted from mother to daughter down the generations...
It's partly nature partly nurture.
Back in the time period 1945 -1965 many a woman probably could have nursed her baby but some bozo of a doc, nurse or husband or whoever discouraged her. 
To be positive here: Nowadays the hospitals and docs are much more understanding and encourage women to nurse.
All it takes normally is the woman let the newborn nurse as soon as the baby needs to. Some newborns want to nurse. The baby gets colostrum first then the regular milk comes in sometimes as late as 2 1/2 days later.  Human infants really need that colostrum. 
In a survival situation, I feel most new mothers would just naturally hold their babies close and nurse their babies. As long as the environment seems safe and it is fairly quiet it could work out for most new mothers. It really helps mother and baby get off to a good start. The new mother needs plenty of fluids. Well BudddaKitty I am sure you know all this... just sharing some info...
young men need to pay attention and learn something about these matters too. I would imagine in the Aftertimes young people will marry younger and as soon as things settle down there will be  new baby boom.

10 Easy Steps to Detoxify Your Body and Improve Your Health
By admin

The environment we live in is full of toxins. We inhale them in the air we breathe, ingest them with our food and water, and absorb them through the pores in our skin. Even the personal care products and cleaning supplies that we take for granted are full of poisons that are harmful to our bodies.

While we are surrounded by pollutants from the environment, the human body produces its own toxins. Our metabolic processes result in chemical wastes which can compromise our health.

The accumulation of these harmful substances in the body is known as “toxic load” – sometimes referred to as “body burden.” Over time, the buildup of environmental toxins in our systems can lead to chronic or severe health problems.

Some medical researchers estimate that nearly 75% of the diseases that afflict us are largely due to the toxicity of our systems. Headaches, chronic respiratory illness, cancer, and even autism have been linked to the accumulation of unsafe chemicals in the body.

The good news is that, although it is impossible to completely isolate ourselves from these harmful substances, we can reduce our exposure to them and decrease their impact through a simple detoxification program. By following these 10 easy steps, you will rid your body of many harmful chemicals, putting yourself on the path to a healthful lifestyle and greater sense of well-being.

1. Get plenty of restorative sleep. Adequate rest is critical to your body’s ability to heal itself and perform its many biological functions properly.

2. Plan your meals with good nutrition in mind. Be sure to eat plenty of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables; avoid processed and pre-packaged foods, refined flour and sugar products, trans-fats, and red meats. Proper nutritional balance is important for maintaining healthy organ function, especially the excretion of toxic elements through the liver.

* A cleansing diet designed to flush toxic matter from your digestive system may be incorporated into your detox program. Keep in mind that these diets are meant for the short term only, and people who are being treated for a medical condition should not undertake a restrictive diet without the approval of their physician.

3. Adapt a stress management technique that suits your lifestyle, such as yoga, meditation, or another soothing activity that you enjoy. Stress is responsible for the production of hormones which can be harmful, leading to heart disease and other severe illness; stress management reduces levels of these hormones and boosts your ability to cope with the challenges of life.

4. Physical activity heightens your body’s ability to excrete toxins, as well as providing an overall health benefit. Exercise is important to the success of your detoxification efforts, in addition to being necessary for a healthy lifestyle.

5. Avoid behaviors that are detrimental to your health, like smoking, drinking alcohol in excess, and recreational drug use; stay away from artificial stimulants like caffeine. These substances will inevitably slow down your detoxification progress.

6. Take herbal supplements. There are several detoxifying herbs which are available in either tea or capsule form. These include dandelion, milk thistle, burdock, and red clover. Ginger root and the popular acai berry are also known for their detoxifying properties, as is Vitamin C.

7. Purchase a body cleanse or liver and colon cleanse kit. These consist of natural detox products that flush toxins from your liver and colon, restoring optimal function.

8. Drink plenty of water. Adequate hydration is needed to remove toxic elements from your body.

8. Massage therapy is not only relaxing and restorative; it allows your body to excrete toxins up to 200 times faster than on its own.

9. Take a sauna or a hot bath regularly. The skin is a major excretory organ, and the heat of a sauna or bath opens the pores and increases your body’s rate of natural detoxification.

10. Reduce exposure to toxic elements. An air filter in your home will drastically improve the quality of the air you breathe; use natural cleaners and personal care products whenever possible to prevent the absorption of toxins through your skin. Sticking to organic foods lowers your risk of ingesting dangerous pesticides.
Watch out for foods wrapped in plastic wrap; plastic contains chemicals called phthalates which are known to cause cancer and developmental problems, including early-onset puberty.

While it is impossible to completely eliminate your exposure to dangerous chemicals in the environment, by following these steps you can greatly diminish their harmful impact on your health.

One thing I would add to the list is try to stay away from people who run you down or upset you.
If you just cannot be assertive with that person if they are always crossing the line, well cross them off your list. You can still chat from time to time, send good thoughts etc. but don't let that person under your skin...
Too much to do, too much at stake. Move on, etc.

You are right, it is absolutely true some doctors are far more conscientious than others.
Also when confronted with a problem a good doc will treat it aggressively instead of letting it get worse...
The other thing is...if they cannot diagnose something they do some reading or consult with other doctors
or refer.

And stay away from Soy.  I've managed to find a Cardiologist who is also a Naturopath.  He tells me that, although soy is a good source of plant based protein, it will also bind up the natural thyroid that you are making. I've been on a natural thyroid supplement (doc prescribed) for two years now and I no longer freeze when the temps drop below 50 degree F and my energy level is much better.

I read somewhere that exercising will help boost your thyroid.  So I've been walking almost everyday (2 miles) and lifting my free weights and doing some core strengthening.  It's really not much at all, except the walking, but at least it's something.  I forgot about the iodized salt.  That could help a lot because I normally don't add salt when cooking or eating, so maybe an occasional shake wouldn't hurt.

A giant step backwards and I hope it does not happen. Also on HLN News this AM Robin Meade

A lot of people reading here are probably familiar with the various frequencies which strenthen the
human body, mind and soul. I don't claim to be an expert, but am looking into all this.
Below here are a couple videos about two of the best frequencies, 432 Hz and 528 Hz (DNA repair frequency)
For now just two videos, the notes are long.
1.   frequency 528 Hz (DNA repair frequency ?) : NO MUSIC single tone 5:32

528 Hz (DNA repair frequency

VIDEO Link:  http://youtu.be/tgMQOAWeVs0

528 Hz, the frequency for transformation and DNA repair.

http://www.unisonicascension.com/solfeggio/
There is a special sound and color of love according to Dr. Horowitz, a Harvard-trained award-winning investigator. Broadcasting the right frequency can help open your heart, prompt peace, and hasten healing. "We now know the love signal, 528 Hertz, is among the six core creative frequencies of the universe because math doesn't lie, the geometry of physical reality universally reflects this music; these findings have been independently derived, peer reviewed, and empirically validated," Dr. Horowitz says.

Horowitz & Puleo: Healing Codes for the Biological apocalypse, Idaho 1999.

The third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA - the genetic blueprint upon which life is based! MI - 528 Hz - relates to crown chakra. Dr Puleo suggests an association with DNA integrity.

The regular "C" that we all know of in this culture (which is from the diatonic scale of do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do) is not the 528 Hz frequency "C.
A regular "C" vibrates at a frequency of 523.3 Hz.
The "C" of 528 Hz used for DNA repair is part of an ancient scale called the Solfeggio Scale.

A Musical Score for Disease
http://www.technologyreview.com/Biotech/21094/page2/
Converting genetic activity into music may be a way to monitor health.
By Jennifer Chu
When set to music, colon cancer sounds kind of eerie. That's the finding of Gil Alterovitz, a research fellow at Harvard Medical School who is developing a computer program that translates protein and gene expression into music. In his acoustic translation, harmony represents good health, and discord indicates disease.

Electricity sparks stem-cell transformation

THE activity of stem cells, prized for their ability to differentiate into
any cell type in the body, has been controlled by manipulating cellular
electrical signals.

At present, researchers expose stem cells to nutrients and growth factors to
trigger differentiation and control what type of cell they will become. But
when Michael Levin of Tufts University, Boston, and colleagues discovered
voltage changes in adult human stem cells as the cells naturally differentiated into fat and bone, they wondered if changing the voltage could control a cell's fate.
Sure enough, when they blocked ion flow in a fresh batch of cells, differentiation was suppressed, while adding chemicals that increase the voltage across cell membranes sped up their transformation (PLoS ONE, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0003737).

The group hopes to use this method to more precisely control stem cell differentiation, perhaps in future when using the cells to build organs for transplantation. As fat and bone cells produced different voltage patterns
during differentiation, electricity might be used to produce these cell types.

How to tune your guitar to 432 hz, and 444/528 hz (Original Song "Cardinal" in 444 hz afterwards)
Published on Mar 16, 2012 by boudah2013

Video Link:  http://youtu.be/0Okjb_JqGAU

I was researching how to tune to these frequencies with my guitar and didn't see many good explanations on how to, so I threw this vid together, I hope it helps someone.

A good source of info about our standard 440 Hz tuning:
http://web.mac.com/len15/MUSICAL_CULT_CONTROL/Leonard_G._Horowitz.html

Why is music at 432Hz so important?

432hz vibrates on the principals of the golden mean PHI ratio and Fibonacci series, which is the mathmatical formula and the movement that all living things on this planet follow.
Fibonacci sequence appears in Indian mathematics, and is in connection with the ancient Sanskrit language.
432 hz unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology, the DNA code and consciousness.

432hz Natural Tuning has profound effects on consciousness and also on the cellular level of our bodies.

By retuning musical instruments and using concert pitch at 432 hertz instead of 440 hertz, your atoms and DNA starts to resonate in harmony with the PHI spiral of nature.

What is 528 hz?

It is an Ancient Solfeggio Frequency. 'What's that'

The Solfeggio healing tones were used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago. The frequencies produced by these chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung during religious masses. Dr. Joseph Puleo rediscovered these powerful frequencies as described in the book &quot;Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse&quot; by Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

Each of the ancient Solfeggio Tones listed below contain the exact frequency to balance our energy, when delivered, they reinforce the balance required by each chakra to maintain complete energetic balance ultimately facilitating the transformation that match each frequency.


The Seven Solfeggio Frequencies:

UT -- 396 Hz -- "Liberating Guilt and Fear, Grounding"

RE -- 417 Hz -- "Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change"

MI -- 528 Hz -- "Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)"

FA -- 639 Hz -- "Connecting/Relationships"

SOL -- 741 Hz -- "Expression/Solutions"

LA -- 852 Hz -- "Awakening Intuition/Spiritual Balance"

TI -- 963 Hz -- "Communication with Divine, Higher Dimensions"

So tuning to 444 hz, is a harmonic equivalent to 528 hz...

How???

On the piano A-444 Hz (C5) is 528 Hz.

Now tune them guitars an get out there an jam!!! ;-)

I watched the DR OZ show yesterday, he had Jenny McCarthy on his show, and she said that simply eliminating Dairy and Gluten from her diet gave her tremendous energy and a much better feeling of well being.  Just doing those two things would be no cost at all.  I personally think we should not be ingesting dairy anyway since it is full of radiation, and I can personally attest to the fact of eliminating gluten, I always feel so much better when I do this, my system is much more regular, but I must confess I have a hard time staying away from gluten.  We might know what we should be doing, but actually being faithful is not always easy.

Interesting post from Endtimesgal. Definitely something to think about -going gluten-free.
I was away from wheat for a few years but now it's hard for me to do that... Probably a good idea.

I have been making flatbreads out of spelt flour (or kamut or Einkorn) and it is essentially flour and enough liquid (either whey or water) to make a tortilla-like thing.   I put them in a hot skillet without oil or water, and brown on each side for 30 seconds or longer--just enough to make it crusty but not enough to cook it hard.  Then it is ready for an open-face grilled cheese, for those still into dairy.

If you must have dairy, organic and raw is the way to go, preferably from goats, or if from cows,  the"A2" variety.

IIRC, it is the ancient "wheats" that have not been genetically altered to produce all the newer antigens, and they are not nearly as inflammation inducing as modern-day wheats.

Still, grains aren't something hunter-gatherers ate in large quantities as do humans today.  That tells us something.

I've been a label reader since the 1960s - but hey there are a few things I have been missing. My oldest daughter recently told us about the carrageenan which I had thought was totally harmless ("Irish Moss," but it is washed with chemicals...yikes!
Also we had been buying almond milk pretty steadily and yes, as you posted, it is in there.
I try to eat fairly naturally but I have been indulging in some salty snacks becaue of the humidity and the sweating - and wow some of those ingredients are not good at all.
I think the profit motive has taken over more because not so long ago you could still find a lot of items with only a few main ingredients... When I say profit motive some ingredients are just added to extend the shelf life...

You are correct about the profit motive, but I actually have come to believe it goes even deeper than that.  I am pondering where to post a couple of videos of a German scientist who I find sincere, aware, and speaks from the heart.  He also does mention that some of his talk seems "fringe" but once you understand a lot of the background, that "fringe" might seem more likely all the time.

It is worth mentioning that no matter how creepy and bizarre some of his material might seem, he does conclude on a very positive note.

 I might post the links under "The Bigger Picture".  Ideas?  Believe me, the underlying theme is truly a bigger picture than most humans are willing to venture.  IOW, how far down the rabbit hole do we want to go in order to find the TRUTH?

7 Signs You May Have a Vitamin D Deficiency  32:36

May 28, 2014 | 4,297,970 views
By Dr. Mercola

Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common in the US, but many Americans mistakenly believe they aren’t at risk because they consume vitamin-D-fortified foods (such as milk).

There are very few foods that actually have therapeutic levels of vitamin D naturally and even fortified foods do not contain enough vitamin D to support your health needs.

Despite its name, vitamin D is not a regular vitamin. It's actually a steroid hormone that you are designed to obtain primarily through sun exposure, not via your diet.

Just How Widespread Is Vitamin D Deficiency?

Before the year 2000, very few doctors ever considered the possibility that you might be vitamin D deficient.

But as the technology to measure vitamin D became inexpensive and widely available, more and more studies were done, and it became increasingly clear that vitamin D deficiency was absolutely rampant. For example, according to one of the leading vitamin D researchers, Dr. Michael Holick:
•The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 32 percent of children and adults throughout the US were vitamin D deficient -- and this is grossly underestimated as they used vitamin D levels that were not consistent with optimal health.
•The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 50 percent of children aged one to five years, and 70 percent of children between the ages of six and 11, are deficient or insufficient in vitamin D
•Researchers such as Dr. Holick estimate that 50 percent of the general population is at risk of vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency

Researchers have also noted that vitamin D deficiency is prevalent in adults of all ages who always wear sun protection (which blocks vitamin D production) or limit their outdoor activities.1 People with increased skin pigmentation (such as those whose ancestors are from Africa, the Middle East, or India) are also at risk, as are the elderly.

It’s estimated that over 95 percent of US senior citizens may be deficient in vitamin D, not only because they tend to spend a lot of time indoors but also because they produce less in response to sun exposure (a person over the age of 70 produces about 30 percent less vitamin D than a younger person with the same sun exposure).2

7 Signs You May Be Vitamin D Deficient

The only way to know for sure if you’re vitamin D deficient is via blood testing. However, there are some signs and symptoms to be aware of as well. If any of the following apply to you, you should get your vitamin D levels tested sooner rather than later.

1. You Have Darker Skin

African Americans are at greater risk of vitamin D deficiency, because if you have dark skin, you may need as much as 10 times more sun exposure to produce the same amount of vitamin D as a person with pale skin!

As Dr. Holick explained, your skin pigment acts as a natural sunscreen, so the more pigment you have, the more time you’ll need to spend in the sun to make adequate amounts of vitamin D.

2. You Feel “Blue”

Serotonin, the brain hormone associated with mood elevation, rises with exposure to bright light and falls with decreased sun exposure. In 2006, scientists evaluated the effects of vitamin D on the mental health of 80 elderly patients and found those with the lowest levels of vitamin D were 11 times more prone to be depressed than those who received healthy doses.3

3. You’re 50 or Older

As mentioned, as you get older your skin doesn’t make as much vitamin D in response to sun exposure. At the same time, your kidneys become less efficient at converting vitamin D into the form used by your body and older adults tend to spend more time indoors (i.e. getting even less sun exposure and therefore vitamin D).

4. You’re Overweight or Obese (or Have a Higher Muscle Mass)

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble, hormone-like vitamin, which means body fat acts as a "sink" by collecting it. If you're overweight or obese, you're therefore likely going to need more vitamin D than a slimmer person -- and the same holds true for people with higher body weights due to muscle mass.

5. Your Bones Ache

According to Dr. Holick, many who see their doctor for aches and pains, especially in combination with fatigue, end up being misdiagnosed as having fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome.

“Many of these symptoms are classic signs of vitamin D deficiency osteomalacia, which is different from the vitamin D deficiency that causes osteoporosis in adults,” he says. “What’s happening is that the vitamin D deficiency causes a defect in putting calcium into the collagen matrix into your skeleton. As a result, you have throbbing, aching bone pain.”

6. Head Sweating

According to Dr. Holick, one of the first, classic signs of vitamin D deficiency is a sweaty head. In fact, physicians used to ask new mothers about head sweating in their newborns for this very reason. Excessive sweating in newborns due to neuromuscular irritability is still described as a common, early symptom of vitamin D deficiency.4

7. You Have Gut Trouble

Remember, vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means if you have a gastrointestinal condition that affects your ability to absorb fat, you may have lower absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin D as well. This includes gut conditions like Crohn’s, celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Thanks for this reminder Barb.  Probably the easiest thing to do is just take a high-quality supplement daily or almost daily, or make absolutely certain you know how much sun you receive and that it is enough.  I like Carlsen's cod liver oil with the lemon flavor.  It actually tastes good.  Supplements probably will never equal the sun, but it's better than being deficient.

Linda, I'm not an expert on Vitamin D. I did meet a woman once in my doctor's office. She said her doc (her holistic doc) got her on a lot of Vit D supplementation and it was like night and day, her health improved so much! I was astounded at that time, because the USDA daily requirement of D is not very high. Her doc had her on big doses. I still don't know how much I should take but I am going to work on it. I now sit outside in the sun, covering up my face, mostly...

There is something (can't recall verbatim what it says) in/on the Carlsen literature that talks about their cod liver oil and how it doesn't have the heavy metals in it, and I even wonder if they are somehow removing them from the waters there?  I don't know, but I use their c.l.o., and never have any dreams telling me not to, so it must be OK.

Carlsen's Cod Liver Oil has suddenly gotten very expensive.  BUT it, IMO, is very high quality.  Also be aware that several of their products have similar looking bottles.  They have the above product, plus a "Fish Oil" that I once bought by accident due to the similarities.  Then it seems there was yet another one with extra vit. A and/or extra Vit's A & D added, but we just want the regular C.L.O. but with the lemon flavor.  I think it's worth the price.

Also be aware of buying it in a place with low-volume sales.  We bought a couple of bottles at a health food store, where the bottles were on a top shelf, unprotected from the UV fluorescent ceiling lights.  We opened the first one and even though it was lemon flavored, it tasted almost rancid, and the lemon flavor was minimal if that, and we figured sitting there near the ceiling light all day, every day, probably was almost as bad as sitting in the sun!  Now we buy it from Whole Foods, which isn't a favorite store, but at least they do have some items like this.

Vitamin C Complex--this is the first time I've heard of that.  But now I get it--it's Vit. C that comes with some of the phytochemicals that are there in the plant with the Vit. C.  Makes perfect sense.
Yes, thanks for posting this.

Yowbarb Note:
there are different types of "Vitamin C Complex" and different manufacturers have different formulas.
Two common ingredients are hesperidin and rutin.
Rutin is from various plants often buckwheat, or it could be asparagus, other plants.
It can also contain fruit and vegetable concentrates, grape seed extract, acerola cherry etc.
I don't claim to be an expert on C Complex I just know that, for decades now, if I take a C supplement which contains hesperidin, rutin and/or acerola cherry it seems to help me a lot more than pure ascorbic acid.
Even the hard white ascorbic acid tablets DO seem to help, though.
Plenty of times when I had practically no money for supplements I would buy the cheap ascorbic acid. Would saturate myself with it if I felt a cold coming on ... or an allergy, spider bite etc. My source for that was Adelle Davis.

•   I take a big doze of Coenzyme Q10 (Q10) daily again.
•   I plan to add the black seed to my diet.

I have a big morter and pestle. I plan to grind up the seeds and keep it, could be in vegetarian gelatin capsures, some in a glass jar.

I've heard off and on that people who need more energy and strength should take whey protein powder.  Well, I don't like supplements, and would rather get my nutrients from food if possible.   On a related note, I save the whey from cheesemaking, and then add it here and there in rice dishes, casseroles, etc., but usually never try to convert it into powder, as whey contains salts, proteins, and other nutrients, all nourishing.

The other day for some reason I decided to drink an entire glass of whey from a yogurt cheese making session, and I was astonished at how much energy I had the rest of the day!  No kidding!  I had several "fence post projects" to do that day, and I was walking around carrying the "fence-post-pounder" in one hand, and a steel fence post or two in the other hand like it was nothing.  I felt like the "Strong Man in the Circus" that day.  It was almost funny.  In fact, it was.

My true story, and I think there is definitely some truth to the fact that whey can help a person be or feel stronger.

Wow, ilinda!!
I've never tried it. I mean not in the natural state. What a great thing!
Decades ago, an old German naturopath told me to eat whey. I wasn't that impressed. Whey is added to stuff... He probably meant get the real stuff...

Sorry for the delay.  Yes,  it was from raw, organic goat milk.  I'm about to partake again today after having made cottage cheese last night/this morning.

One World Whey (http://www.sgn80.com/oneradionetwork?a_aid=orn256872&a_bid=66daa0c8) is a whey protein powder that has been devised and produced with true knowledge of the power of whey in mind. Not only has the whey been dried at low temperature so the amino acids, bacteria and enzymes aren't destroyed (by high temperatures) but the cows producing the milk are munching on growing grass; why should you care?
Well, Weston Price's research shows that milk and butter that comes from cows that have grazed on grass in it's growing phase has special attributes that offer amazing results. And the people at One World Whey have taken such research into account and used it in formulating their whey.

I myself have experienced a significant increase in strength and energy since i started using One World Whey. I mean, i've been trying out all kinds of things and i'm not 100% sure that my significant increase in energy comes from using One World Whey, but i'm pretty sure it's (at least) part of that.

Your energy levels might well be due to the One World Whey.

The whey I use is still liquid, and freshly drained from the cheese making process, made from milk that is raw and 100% grassfed.   I have dried my own whey several times, but it is not "whey protein" only, as it is everything in whey except the water that slowly evaporates during the very-long drying process.  It takes forever, so I'll continue to drink the liquid whey.

But for those who do not or cannot make their own yogurt, whey powder does seem reasonable.

ilinda had mentioned bone broth too, awhile back...
It turns out it has many healing properties... beef or chicken bones...
I posted an article from Dr. Axe about bone broth, here:

On the rare occasion that we eat chicken, I gnaw on the ends of the bones, even stealing bones from hubby's plate.  It's amazing how soft the one end of each bone seems, while the other seems too hard for our teeth. 

You can slowly gnaw and gnaw and get not only that softer part, presumably part of the joint, but the longer you work over the bone, the more marrow you can get.  Now, doesn't that sound like some cave-person talk?  LOL

As a child I instinctively grawed on the ends of chicken bones...
I remember once, I was about six, Mother told me, that's good for you, go ahead and eat that.

Note from Yowbarb: I feel like sharing a simple thought. This applies for anyone who is overwhelmed at how to get healthier, or feeling lost in the information...
There are a lot of things to do, some expensive, many not.

I have to tell myself this sometimes, actually a lot of the time:
Do what you can, what you already know works. It may not cost a thing, do that, now.

Some examples of things that cost nothing or not much:

Weather permitting, soak in the warm sun for a few min at least.
If you are able to look outward to a point far away, horizon, top of tall tree, distant building, do it.
Feel your palm with your hand, If you notice tender pressure points, gently rub there for a few minutes.
Do the same on the other hand.
Point and flex your feet several times, before going to bed and point and flex your feet, upon arising.

If you do have to get off your feet throughout the day (injuries, arthritis, or just plain need a break between heavy things you do, then point and flex then too.
Try to actually rock in your rocking chair. This flexes a little "second heart" of circulation in your lower legs, calves...

During the day, step outside and look at the sky.  If in an office building at least look out the window…
Have had a habit of doing that my entire life, taking a look at the sky. In my early thirties read that was part of the Native American lifestyle to look at the sky. (I don't have a reference on it.)

Shortly before sunset try to look briefly into the setting sun, unless it is overwhelmingly bright.

Shut off the TV, internet for an hour or more, before sleep.
Unplug the wireless phone, the tevo and shut off the router for the internet before sleep.
YES it makes a difference!
If possible, and no texted emergencies going on, or cats needing to be let back in, cows out of the barn, whatever:  Putter around in your boudoir for awhile, as if you were a "person of leisure."
If possible to get a warm bath, chamomile etc. do it.

Warm up your muscles in the AM before you go sprinting off on your chores…that can save on discomfort later. Not always possible, but try.
Try get some kinds fruit and veg daily. Even if lazy about fruit and veg prep, or have trouble chewing raw stuff, at least eat an applesauce. Something is better than nothing.

Try avoid too much sugar.
If your body will do it, exercise in place in living rm about 12 minutes.
Even if that is all the actual aerobics you do, that will cause your calories to be burned up at a
higher rate for the entire day.
If overweight is a problem weigh yourself in the AM. That gives you some feedback.
Unless grapefruit interferes with prescription meds, have some organic grapefruit regularly...

If you are surprised to find you ate all you wanted and still dropped a little weight: Then think back, what did you do that was different?
I was surprised to find that butter and coconut oil in the AM frothed up with strong coffee, and lots of it, gave me such an apparently antioxidant and nourishing boost I kept away from carbs for hours and gradually, painlessly dropped weight.
Not only that, I could allow some complex and also refined treats later in the day with out a
sugar crash or weight gain.

NOTE: Plenty people cannot handle any refined carbs or are already off of them.
Not advocating anyone change that.

Keep hydrating yourself. The more refined carbs you indulge in the more water you will need...

Consider keeping a little Battleplan-Journal. You make up a simple format, save it.
Whatever it is that's important to keep track of, and this may vary from month to month,
hence the monthly formats. U can always copy paste and start a new format.
Copy paste Format  and put in a new date, and go on to the next day.
Even if you are so busy you can barely look at it, you will become more mindful of your habits, what helps you.
Also you might remember something of the day... That's why I call mine a "Battleplan-Journal."

Best quality foods and supplements can be expensive. Try to find a few basic items which make a difference for you.
For me it is Sea Essential Liquid, Vitamin C complex, 300 mg COQ10 a day, some B1 when I have it… It varies.
Oh yeah DE is back in the mix. I mix it with Louisiana Hot Sauce in cran-cherry juice.  (Cane sugar sweetened and no high fructose corn syrup works for me.) Note: If it tastes so bad you cannot drink it, a bit of sugar is preferable to not drinking it. IMHO Best to not be too fanatical when trying to get some basics in.

As you get your lifestyle, schedule and nutrition better under control, add more expensive or complicated treatments… ?

You don't need to put off doing the more intense programs, or what you feel you need to try... Just don't forget about keeping in the basics, and building upon them…

Take a win if you are making progress...   ;D

Especially good advice, yowbarb, and my favorite is the one about getting outside in the sun.  It is amazing the amount of naturally derived vitamin D3 that one can produce from just 10-20 minutes of direct sun a day.  And it doesn't HAVE to be directly overhead to stimulate the process in your skin.

Just thinking about going on in the sun on a clear day brightens the mood.

Thanks, ilinda, I enjoyed writing that and it helpsed me reinforce some things I need to do regularly...
I suppose a lot of people are like me? Very disciplined for a long time...then not! Then I can really fall off the wagon or try something else...

It helps when one's mate or good friend is on a similar path... Many years ago, my Michael and I had quite a routine going and we both seemed to pull our health back from the brink of (something.) Lots of slimming down and detoxifying. Then things changed he went into the Navy Reserves and then Active duty meteorology training for awhile. Then with the NWS job. I was still raising my minor son; circumstances separated us, at least as far as living together.  Michael got sick and died... I still think it was some kind of exposure from a navy ship... I will always remember the things he taught me. The time we did have together.

It seems to vary, what I need to do. I've gone off in a really different direction now from what Michael had encouraged me to do, but realizing some of the things we used to do  in the AM I need to do again... warm purified water, yoga.  (The apple slices, juicing would now be doing quite a while later, after my "Bulletproof coffee' ...
Quite a "splice in," for the things I have been doing. Was vegetarian - sometimes vegan in those days, but consuming lots of fresh Atlantic salmon and omega 3 foods now... Realizing, still would benefit from the gentle cleansing and yoga...and I do not need to overdo it even with a great food such as salmon and I can have some cleansing tart fruit somewhere in there, early part of day...
Instead of first thing the cleansing stuff will try it quite awhile after the bulletproof coffee... (I do not think all that would mix well in the stomach... I have found I can be on a cleansing thing in the afternoon, too, especially if resting after chores...

This is the only one uploaded to my computer...
This is  the day my first grandson was born.
Michael and I were there, I was saluting the spiritual being, before he was born. 
Wish I'd done a proper salute instead of a Girl Scout salute, oh well.
Pic taken by daughter Joellen outside the natural birth center.
This is 1993.
Daughter was in a cranky mood and didn't think she would give birth that day.
We got her there in a hurry. Midwife-MD info'd us the placenta had failed...
Baby Damian born safely a short while later... :)

What a beautiful couple you were!  It's a good thing you got Joellen there and discovered the trouble. 

When you say the placenta had failed, do you mean something other than the membrane had ruptured, in other words other than going into labor?

OK, now instead of Natalie Wood, am thinking you look more like Susan St. James maybe?  :)

Hi again. :) All I can remember is, midwife called me, as Joellen's mother and told me placenta had failed and she would be inducing labor at the birth center. Physician attending/on call. Midwives, holistic docs.
Jo didn't know, doc didn't want to freak her out, we got her there and it was all taken care of and baby born safe...

Easy inexpensive ways to get stronger, IMHO

both cooked and raw vegetables daily
some fruit
a minimum of wheat
Atlantic wild - caught fish
If a vegetarian then a good variety of protein sources, seeds and nuts, miso etc.
Take an AM and a PM walk daily
