Shattering the Hourglass / Smart Meters? / Shakespeare on Friday

sky 1

A child passes through our lives
Like a celestial object in space,
Dancing through the universe
  Rapidly past our small, lonely planet,
Past a lonely heart in need.
sky2 The light of your life,

The stories you and only you
Can share,
Stories that should be,
Must be told,
Will truly become a treasure
More valued than gold.
Yes, the arteries from your heart
Are the richest veins
Of gold.

Reveal to your child
How you see the Universe,
What tomorrow can bring,
And all the joy
  Their Life has given you.
And as you tell
Of so many Blessings,
Let your heart sing.

sky 4

The Love of our beloved children
Can only wither and die
In the emptiness of space,
In the loneliness of time,
If we do nothing.
Nothingness
Is a destroyer of worlds.

Gather the flowers of love
From the Garden
Of life that remains,
And fill the void
Felt inside.

Yes, there are many
Shattered and empty hearts,
Created by simply

Never knowing,
Never being told,
They were truly loved.

All around us

Are the tattered remains
Of so many fragile hearts,
Broken by the waters
Of so many tears
That have flowed,
Standing at the foot
Of so many graves.

sky 3

Ever late,
They could have loved
Those left behind
With the flowers of their Spring,
With the joyful tears
Of Life and Love.

In sharing your time,
And the hidden treasures of your joy
With your precious children,
You create such beautiful moments together,
That this time will become worth
All that is of any real value
To you and them
In this world.

Do not wait,
For the time shall never be right,
It will escape you!
Time creates its own illusions,
Shattering the hourglass,
That by pretense of its being,
Feigns to measure
That which does not exist
.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAYes,
Tomorrow will always be too late.

So please stop.
Make the world as you imagine it to be,
Go away.
Place your loving arms around the real world,
Your child of so many dreams.
Fill the heart
Of such longing and desire
With truth,
With your deep and abiding Love,
Love everlasting,
The Love that flows through you
By the Grace of God above.

And after all the deeply heartfelt feelings,
Of knowing, surely knowing,
That your child is all that matters
In this world to you,

That you are in Love,
In Love with the dream come true,
The Gift of your child,
The beautiful Blessing of birth,
Of Life and Love renewed,

There will blossom,
Like a flower in the wind,
Such a depth
Of unbelievably beautiful emotion,
That you will rediscover the joy in life,
And the bountiful, beautiful Love
That has been ever so
Quietly,

Patiently,
Waiting,

Just for you.

SMART METERS? – from our friends at NaturalNews.com. read more

When Thomas Edison began wiring New York City with a direct current electricity distribution system in the 1880s, he gave humankind the magic of electric light, heat, and power; in the process, though, he inadvertently opened a Pandora’s Box of unimaginable illness and death.

Smart meters send and receive wireless RF/MW signals throughout homes and businesses. These smart meter RF/MW levels are far higher than those already reported to cause health risks.

Compliance is not safety, since the existing FCC safety limits are under challenge, and have already been called ‘insufficient to protect public health’ by some federal agencies.

Dirty Electricity tells the story of Dr. Samuel Milham, the scientist who first alerted the world about the frightening link between occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic pollution, and human disease. Milham takes readers through his early years and education, following the twisting path that led to his discovery that most of the twentieth century diseases of civilization, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and suicide, are caused by electromagnetic field exposure.

Wyatt is the dog whisperer.

Wyatt is the dog whisperer.

Dr. Milham warns that because of the recent proliferation of radio frequency radiation from cell phones and towers, terrestrial antennas, Wi-Fi and Wi-max systems, broadband internet over power lines, and personal electronic equipment, we may be facing a looming epidemic of morbidity and mortality. In Dirty Electricity, he reveals the steps we must take, personally and as a society, to coexist with this marvelous but dangerous technology.

Daniel Hirsch, a lecturer and expert in nuclear policy at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), has written a report that reveals smart meters emit 160 times more cumulative whole body exposure than cell phones.

Dr. Magda Havas, associate professor and researcher at Trent University, has studied dirty electricity since 2003.
Some of her findings when dirty electricity is removed:
• Improvement in the symptoms associated with MS
• Diabetic’s blood sugars stabilized
• Decreased breast cancer risk
• Body’s efficient use of calcium restored
• Appropriate melatonin distribution returned, improving sleep patterns
.
Dr. Milham’s findings led him to contact higher-ups in the military and the government, with no response. This prompted him to author his book. Dr. Milham’s work found correlations between communities using little or no electricity and those using dirty electricity. The communities exposed to dirty electricity had a much higher incidence of many chronic diseases and other health afflictions.How does this happen?The body is an electrical being. Every cell, tissue, and organ transmits information through tiny electrical currents which are disturbed by these high frequency fields, setting the body up for disease.When suffering from exposure to dirty electricity the symptoms are wide ranging and diverse.These symptoms may manifest through:
• The skin
• Sleep disturbances
• Muscle and joint pain
• Physical and mental exhaustion
• Migraines
• Light headedness
• Nausea
• Loss of cognitive function
• Irritability
• Anxiety
• Muscle spasms
• Numbness and tingling
• Pain in the lower extremities
• High temperature

The Creation of Dirty Electricity

An example of how dirty electricity is created stems from how cell phone towers utilize energy. The towers operate on direct current. However, the electrical current supplied to the tower is in the form of an alternating current; therefore, the supply needs to be changed or converted. This is accomplished using an inverter. Inverters interrupt the alternating current and are a source of dirty electricity. This dirty electricity is put back into the power supply lines, which in turn, can enter a building through their electrical wiring.

Dirty electricity also affects electronic equipment.

Exposure in the average home comes from:

• Cell phone chargers

• Computers

• Office equipment

• Television sets

• Dimmer switches

• Wireless technologies

• Energy saving devices

• Electrical wiring in walls

• Candescent fluorescent light bulbs

Avoiding Exposure (Here is where you can take notes.)

• Change all CFLs to candescent or LED bulbs

• Keep a good distance away from wiring and other sources of dirty electricity

• Limit the use of “dirty electricity appliances”

• Replace unsafe electrical devices with safer alternatives

• Purchase a GS meter and, filter out electromagnetic pollution as necessary with GS filters

Dirty electricity is everywhere. Undiagnosable illness can be a result of exposure to this source of electromagnetic pollution. Implementing these changes may eliminate symptoms, thus eliminating illness. Limiting or avoiding exposure to dirty electricity is beneficial for everyone, avoiding sickness in the first place.

By the way, there are two ways you can shield yourself and your family; you can either use an absorbent shield or a reflector shield. The absorbent shield absorbs RF radiation and the reflector shield deflects the RF radiation away from your home. Whichever you choose, you will need to install it between your home and the meter. read more

We have increased our average life span more than 30 years since 1900! Today, however, we are now decreasing our average lifespan. I wonder why? OK. Now you can go back and read previous weblogs and read the above. Do you think technology has anything to do with the recent decline?

  Health Benefits of Cinnamon
and how to use this amazing spice

                                                           by: Michael Edwards

(NaturalNews)  One teaspoon of Cinnamon Powder has up to 16% of the U.S. recommended daily allowance for Manganese, 5% for fiber 3% for iron, and 3% for calcium.

Blood and Inflammation Reduction
Cinnamon helps reduce unwanted blood platelet clotting, which can result in inadequate blood flow, and is a common symptom of various diseases and overall poor health.

Cinnamon Is a Powerful Antimicrobial Spice
Cinnamon is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiparasitic.

Multiple studies have shown cinnamon’s effectiveness with a multitude of viruses including but not limited to HIV, herpes, and the adenovirus. Cinnamon even shows promise with cancer.

Cancer Treatment and Preventive
Research shows that Cinnamon oil is a promising solution in the treatment of Tumors, Gastric Cancers, leukemia, colon cancer, and lymphoma cancer. and Melanomas. Research studies show that sugar maybe causing or sustaining cancer cells (another reason to STOP buying sugary soft drinks for you precious child) and cinnamon may have a mitigating effect by controlling blood sugar levels in the body.

Another study found good results with leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells. Cinnamon in its various forms has two chemical constituents called Cinnamaldehyde and Eugenol (From Cinnamon Oil). These have been used to develop nutraceuticals in this study that have proven fairly effective in fighting Human Colon Cancer Cells (Eugenol) and Human hepatoma cells (Cinnamaldehyde). So the evidence seems to suggest that Cinnamon is starving cancer cells of the sugar needed to sustain them. read more

Antioxidant
With an ORAC value of 267536 (USDA 2007) cinnamon is one of the top seven anti-oxidants in the world.

He is quite the acrobat.

He is quite the acrobat. (Not you Steve, the Possum)

Cinnamon a powerful antioxidant. In a study that compared the antioxidant activity of 26 spices, cinnamon wound up as the clear winner, even outranking “superfoods” like garlic and oregano.

Depression/Reduced irritability/Mood Enhancer

Cinnamon may be an excellent cure for depression in a more round about way. There is some evidence that certain types of gut bacteria may make you more susceptible to depression. Cinnamon as a powerful stomach anti bacterial may help you remove the bad bacteria. However since Cinnamon removes both bad and good bacteria from your stomach you would be advised to repopulate your body with good bacteria by drinking a good probiotic or eating fermented food after taking Cinnamon. more

Blood Sugar, Diabetes
Cinnamon stabilizes blood sugar levels, which can help with weight loss, and can also prevent, and even help reverse, diabetes and hypoglycemia.

One study found Cassia cinnamon was almost twice as effective as the same amount of Ceylon cinnamon for controlling blood sugar.

Lowering LDL Cholesterol and Triglycerides
Studies have found that regular consumption of cinnamon is associated with a statistically significant decrease in levels of LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and an increase in HDL cholesterol (known as the good cholesterol).

possum 3

Hang in there.

Cinnamon and the Brain
Folklore says the smell of cinnamon can cure the winter blues. Cinnamon consumption may delay the effects of, slow the effects of, and even reverse some of the effects of Alzheimer’s. In addition, some parents are using cinnamon to treat their children with ADHD.

Alertness, Memory & Cognitive Development
According to a study by Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, Associate professor of psychology at Wheeling Jesuit University. Cinnamon may keep you more alert and decrease your frustration when you are behind the wheel.

This hard to verify German study cited in this article those taking Cinnamon improved their response times and memory recall. While not scientific, experience suggests pretty good results in alertness and concentration.

Cold, Sore Throat and Cough – At the first sign (within 5-10 minutes) of sniffles or an itch in your throat take some Cinnamon Tea or Cinnamon stick Tea. It is said to stop an impending illness in its tracks. Again this is related to the anti bacterial properties and warming properties of Cinnamon and its propensity to increase blood flow and thereby improve blood oxygen levels to fight illness. Chinese traditional medicine commonly recommends Cinnamon for phlegm coughs.

Alzheimer’s Disease
  An Israeli study done at the University of Tel Aviv that found sufficient evidence to conclude that Cinnamon can delay the effects of five aggressive strains of Alzheimer’s inducing genes. Another study also finds that orally administered Cinnamon extract has had good success in correcting Cognitive Impairment in Alzheimer’s Disease in Animal Models.

More Ways to Use Cinnamon
There are various essential oils extracted from various parts of the tree (not just the bark), and various species to choose from.

Tooth and Gum Health
Antibacterial properties of cinnamon remove harmful bacteria without damaging teeth or gums. Try using cinnamon with homemade mouthwash and toothpaste recipes. Also, with coconut oil and a few drops of cinnamon oil.

And we had other visitors.

And we had other visitors.

Insect Repellant
Cinnamon essential oil can be used for head lice treatment and to repel (or kill) ants, bed bugs, dust mites, roaches, and mosquitoes.

Skin Infections Like Athlete’s Foot
Try cinnamon oil on any topical skin infection, including athlete’s foot. It’s antimicrobial properties make quick work out of fungus.

Digestion
Cinnamon is very effective for treating indigestion, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhea and flatulence. Cinnamon eliminates excess gas from the stomach and intestines, removes acidity, kills pathogens and acts as a diuretic to stop diarrhea. It relieves irritable bowel syndrome, reduces morning sickness, and is often referred to as a digestive tonic.

Menstruation
Cinnamon has been shown to provide relief from menstrual discomfort and cramping.

Breastfeeding
Regular consumption of cinnamon after childbirth delays menstruation, especially when combined with breastfeeding. Many believe that cinnamon promotes healthier breast milk as well.

Massage
Cinnamon is also an anti-inflammatory substance that combined with carrier oil for massage, and when consumed, can help soothe and remove stiffness in muscles and joints.

There were strange beings from other planetary systems.

There were strange beings from other planetary systems.

Wound Healing
Cinnamon oil acts as a coagulant to stop excess bleeding, and it kills infectious pathogens, facilitating the healing process.

The cinnamon in your pantry is most likely many years old, stale, and of little potency. Stale cinnamon has reduced flavor and health benefits. It may be time to go cinnamon shopping.

What’s Missing from Multi-Vitamin Supplements?
By Elizabeth Wagner, ND
read more

Scientists at Harvard Medical School have advised all adults to take a multi-vitamin supplement to help prevent suboptimal levels of nutrients that may contribute to the onset of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis. For example, suboptimal levels of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and cancer of the colon and breast. Deficient levels of calcium and vitamin D can contribute to osteoporosis and the loss of bone mass. While multi-vitamins can help to prevent certain illnesses, research indicates that abundant intake of fruits and vegetables can prevent some of the major diseases of aging. Studies at the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition in Los Angeles, have reported that higher intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with a reduced incidence of many common forms of cancer.

The World Cancer Research Fund published an extensive review of the

effects of vegetable and fruit consumption on cancer risk. After reviewing hundreds of studies, this not-for-profit group determined conclusively that vegetables and fruits protect against cancer. The panel noted that consumption of at least five servings a day of vegetables and fruits was associated with an approximately 50% reduced risk for cancer compared to the risk associated with consuming only one or two servings. The panel also noted that the cancer-preventive effects of fruits and vegetables were dose dependent, with in-creased intake conferring greater protection.

Compelling evidence likewise suggests that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the US and worldwide. People who consume more fruits and vegetables often have a lower prevalence of important risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including hypertension, obesity, and type II diabetes. Regular and frequent consumption of fruits and vegetables has also been shown to lower the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, and hypertension.

American dogs can become a little “Spoiled”.

A large study conducted in Finland examined the effects of dietary fruit, berry, and vegetable intake on cardiovascular mortality and all-cause mortality in men. More than 2,000 Finnish men participated in the study. Men with the highest consumption of fruits, berries, and vegetables had a 41% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease and a 44% lower risk of all-cause death than men who consumed the least amount of fruits, berries, and vegetables. The study authors concluded, diets that are rich in plant-derived foods can promote longevity.”

Fruits and vegetables not only contain beneficial vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, but also provide a wealth of phytonutrients. These plant-based compounds likely are responsible for some of the protective effects of fruits and vegetables. Phytonutrients are versatile and powerful agents that help to modulate disease risk through a variety of mechanisms. For example, the glucosinolates in broccoli have been associated with a reduced risk of cancer, particularly of the lung and gastrointestinal tract. These compounds appear to offer protection by stimulating the liver’s Phase II enzymes, which are powerful detoxifiers of chemical carcinogens. By contrast, the polyphenols present in olive extract promote health through a different mechanism. In humans, olive polyphenols have been shown to increase the resistance of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidation. Oxidized LDL is a significant risk factor for the development of heart disease and atherosclerosis.

Pomegranate Promotes Heart Health

The pomegranate is a widely cultivated tropical fruit that is native to Asia. Valued throughout history as a symbol of health and fertility, pomegranates contain many seeds enclosed in juicy red pulp and covered in a tough red rind. Pomegranate appears to be one of the most powerful sources of antioxidants among dietary plants, demonstrating a number of actions that can help prevent disease and aging. Ellagic acid, a polyphenol compound found in pomegranate, has been associated with antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-atherogenic biological properties. Pomegranate polyphenols have been found to protect LDL against cell-mediated oxidation.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
FOR HEALTHY BLOOD PRESSURE

Yes, it is beautiful. And, Dr. A had too much coffee.

High blood pressure often is a silent yet dangerous condition that increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Researchers in Athens, Greece, investigated the effects of the Mediterranean diet – rich in fruits, vegetables, and olive oil—on blood pressure in adults. Over 20,000 subjects who had never been diagnosed with hypertension participated in the study. Adherence to the Mediterranean diet was significantly associated with lower levels of systolic and diastolic blood pressure. By contrast, intake of cereals, meat and meat products, and ethanol was associated with higher levels of arterial blood pressure. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and olive oil has been demonstrated to promote healthy blood pressure levels.

Chinese researchers investigated the effects of dietary intake of lycopene and other carotenoids on the prevention of prostate cancer in men.

Information on food consumption, including fruits and vegetables, was gathered using an interview and questionnaire. The researchers found that prostate cancer risk declined with increasing consumption of lycopene, alpha carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin.

Consumption of tomatoes, pumpkin, spinach, watermelon, and citrus fruits was also associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. The dose-response relationships were also significant in this study, suggesting that increasing one’s intake of lycopene and other carotenoid-rich vegetables and fruits may offer protection from prostate cancer.

 10 Common Habits That Seriously Damage Your Kidneys

By Amy Goodrich in NaturalNews.com

Dr. A is desperate for company.

Dr. A is desperate for company.

Here’s a list of 10 common habits that put a lot of pressure on your kidneys and can cause serious damage over time.

1.    Not Drinking Enough Water
2.    Too Much Salt In Your Diet

As a good rule of thumb, no more than 5 grams of salt should be eaten on a daily basis.

3.    Frequently Delaying The Call Of Nature

Retaining urine on a regular basis increases urine pressure and can lead to kidney failure, kidney stones, and incontinence.

4.    Kick The Sugar Habit

People who consume 2 or more sugary drinks a day are more likely to have protein in their urine.

5.    Vitamin And Mineral Deficiencies

Eating a clean, whole food diet full of fresh vegetables and fruits is important for your overall health and a good kidney function. Many deficiencies can increase the risk of kidney stones or kidney failure. Vitamin B6 and magnesium, for instance, are super important to reduce the risk of kidney stones.

An estimated 70 to 80 percent of Americans isn’t getting enough magnesium, so there may be a good chance that you are one of them. Click here to learn more about magnesium deficiencies.

6.    Too Much Animal Protein

Over consumption of protein, especially red meat, increases the metabolic load on your kidneys. So more protein in your diet means your kidneys have to work harder and this can lead to kidney damage or dysfunction over time.

7.    Sleep Deprivation

Chronic sleep deprivation is linked to many diseases and kidney diseases are also on the list. During the night your body repairs damaged kidney tissue.

8.    Coffee

Caffeine can raise blood pressure and put extra stress on your kidneys. Over time excessive consumption of coffee can cause damage to your kidneys. A couple of cups will provide 60 antioxidants. Many more than that and you, too, will be photographing leaves.

9.    Painkiller Abuse

Way too many people take painkillers for their small aches and pains, while there are many all-natural, safe remedies available. Excessive use or painkiller abuse can lead to severe damage of liver and kidneys.

10.  Alcohol Consumption

Mosquito problem? NO. But we must feed the birds the main course. They then have mosquitoes for (burp) dessert. Mosquitoes are the DEADLIEST creatures on this planet!

Alcohol is actually a legal toxin that puts a lot of stress on our kidneys and liver. Please see this weblog dated 02/26/14 – What To Tell Your Kids About Alcohol (go to: News & Events/Newsletters/Digital Newsletters.) You will be shocked to discover what alcohol really is. (Hint: put a long straw in the septic tank and you will get the same effect!)
