I Finally Found An Organic Coffee Manufactured In A Healthful Way


I finally found a Swedish organic coffee that doesn't have a taste of chemical residual or a taste of heavy metals in the mouth.   I'm under the understanding that coffee is dried by diesel fuel by most Swedish coffee manufacturers which leaves a diesel residual on the coffee.

My wife & I contacted the customer service department at Arvid Nordquist Coffee Company in Sweden and were told that they are still using fans to dry their coffee which is perhaps more costly, but far superior if one is to produce a healthier coffee.

I highly recommend you give this coffee a try to taste the difference.

And many thank yous to the customer service department who were so polite and prompt in answering our inquiry.

Gardasil: A Parent’s Worst Nightmare by Andrea Jimenez

Tyler

Gardasil: A parent’s worst nightmare

by Andrea Jimenez
Waipahu, Hawaii

Sane Vax, Inc.,    30 March 2014


She has now been officially medically diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic daily headache with frequent migraine & dysmenorrhea. These are all conditions she never had to deal with prior to the HPV vaccine. The doctors refuse to admit any possible connection.
 
 
This is Tyler, my youngest daughter and an amazing young woman of God. During one of her regular medical check-ups, the doctor recommended that she be given the HPV vaccine, Gardasil. I trusted that the doctor was giving me complete and accurate information – this is what I was taught to do – trust the doctor. Because of this trust, Tyler’s life has become a nightmare.
 
Tyler is now a competitive gymnast who cannot do gymnastics. She is a teenager who cannot go hang out with her friends, a student who cannot go to classes and a sister who cannot help her siblings with homework. She is a daughter who cannot sit and eat dinner with her family.
 
Tyler was given the first of a 3 shot series on April 15, 2012. Immediately after the injection she fainted and was out for about 45 seconds. Within days she began having severe daily headaches and insomnia ensued from there. Over the summer she was hospitalized several times to help with pain, nausea, vomiting, and lack of sleep. At this point, the doctors diagnosed her with migraines.
 
She missed the entire last quarter of her freshman year but was an excellent student who had maintained good enough grades to pass her classes. She had to quit gymnastics because of the pain.
 
Not realizing the cause of her symptoms, we took her to have the second shot on August 14, 2012. She then began having severe neck and back pain that on occasion radiated into her arms and legs (diagnosed as fibromyalgia for lack of any other explanation), insomnia, persistent nausea, dizziness, chronic fatigue and migraines in addition to the chronic daily headache.
 
Not knowing what caused this onset of ‘fibromyalgia’ we took her to the doctor frequently and hospitalized her when necessary. We were completely baffled by the rapid decline in her health.
 
She missed her entire sophomore year of school but had a tutor come into our home – she barely passed most of her courses and ended up having to drop some classes due to inability to keep up.
 
It was purely by the grace of God that we determined she had an adverse reaction to the vaccine which caused so many health issues.
 
She has now been officially medically diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic daily headache with frequent migraine & dysmenorrhea. These are all conditions she never had to deal with prior to the HPV vaccine. The doctors refuse to admit any possible connection.
 
We have tried everything presented to us, with little or no improvement. The doctors continue to try to treat the diagnosis of fibromyalgia but the symptoms are not responding to the treatments. They continue to give her pills that simply cause more health issues. It seems crazy to continue with the pills but we do.
 
The medical community says she will have to live with the pain for the rest of her life. They recommend that we seek alternative treatments to help ease the discomfort – which is very costly and not covered by insurance.
 
We have even attended a pain clinic in Cleveland to teach her how to “live with the pain.” A lifetime of pain is not what any parent envisions for their child. This is not what our faith says her destiny should be!
 
Our entire family’s life has been completely turned upside down since Tyler’s Gardasil injections. In addition to her trials, I lost my job during one of her many hospitalizations. I continue to be unemployed due to her frequent flare ups and doctor’s appointments. My husband works very hard to provide for us, but it’s not the same as it was when we had two incomes!
 
Tyler wants to get her driver’s license, get her GED, hang out with her friends, go to college…she just wants to be normal again! Our daily prayer is that she will soon have her life back and we will have our daughter back!
 
If you are a parent, you understand how hard it is to see your child suffer. It has been 2 years since I last saw my baby be herself. I would do whatever it takes to help my child feel better, but at this point, we are out of options!

For Man Once Loved Earth and Earth Loves Man Still by M.N. Hopkins



For the Earth is a sensitive organism or entity and absorbs much emotional and psychological outpourings from humankind.  When these pollutants and yes they are mental and emotional pollutants reach a point of risking damage to the Earth body, then a release is necessary.

Do you not need a little detoxing from time to time?  Don't you think that the Earth must throw off it's poisons to insure good health also?
 
Humankind has become as a parasite that is slowly destroying it's host although it was not always this way.  In times past Man realized his dependency upon the Earth Mother and behaved in a loving and respectful manner.  Man had good sense and took care of his home knowing that there is none other for his human form.
 
Without the Earth, Man would cease to exist, but without Man, the Earth would continue for many billions of years by the way that Mankind measures time.
 
Humankind has lost all good sense or common sense and thinks itself superior to the Earth.  In a way, yes Man is superior whereas the majority of humankind are far from this. 
 
Humankind now defiles not only himself and others, but also it's Earth Host.  With no regard for Her health or well being, literary littering Her into becoming a lifeless ball of matter.
 
A paradise lost, yet not fully lost. 
 
When Man comes to his senses and behaves in an orderly and respectful fashion and sees to his and her own healing of mind and emotion, and physical body then the Earth will also begin to return to Her natural state of health and well being.
 
There is no separation between Earth and Man or at least the body form that Man inhabits while in human form. 
 
The body form and the Earth form are as one.  Made from the same materials and co-dependent upon one another for survival or perhaps better said, Man is dependent upon the Earth whereas the Earth will continue to exist without Man although in a saddened state. 
 
For Man once loved Earth and Earth loves Man still. 
 
This was the ancient paradigm and one that can again exist in time.

Leaders in the future will be true leaders with the gifts and talents necessary to lead Mankind back to Itself. 

No longer will Mankind be driven by lies and empty words, but by those of true inspiration and direction. 

No longer driven by fear, but directed by loving kindness which will be an outward expression of an inward hearts-light.

Vladimir Putin: Russia Must Protect Its Citizens from GMOs



Vladimir Putin: Russia Must Protect Its Citizens from GMOs

Sustainable Pulse,  28 March 2014


Russia must protect its citizens from the use of foods derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and this can be done in compliance with the country’s obligations under the World Trade Organization (WTO), Russian President Vladimir Putin stated Thursday.

“We need to properly construct our work so that it is not contrary to our obligations under the WTO. But even with this in mind, we nevertheless have legitimate methods and instruments to protect our own market, and above all citizens,” said Putin at a meeting with members of the Board of the Russian Federation Council.

He stressed that the market and citizens should be protected from substandard products, the use of which are eaten until people calculate the consequences.

“We can do it, should do it and will do it. It is not so long ago that this was discussed at the meeting of the Security Council. We must act carefully to avoid prejudice to our obligations under the WTO, but it can be done,” echoed the President , noting that scientific and laboratory research should not be forgotten. Meanwhile, Putin went on, that control is needed of the use of GMOs and  ”we can’t even 100% say how much goes into our market currently .”

“This is what we will do with the public, with experts , with senators , we will move in the direction of protecting our citizens,” the President of the Russian Federation said.

During the meeting, one of the senators noted that to date sales of GM seeds worldwide has totalled about $ 50 billion. “And the main owner of the rights to GMOs – the United States,” – he said. The Senator asked the president to take control of this problem, recalling that there was a bill to ban the import of GMOs.

Save and Support the Organic Food Label by Christina Sarich

Save and Support the Organic Food Label: Don’t let the FDA Win!
by Christina Sarich

Natural Society,     26 March 2014


If you want to keep eating food that doesn’t turn your organs into cancerous mush or cause infertility within three generations, then we need your help to protect organic farmers and their crops. The Save Our Organic campaign is meant to defend the organic food label from USDA changes, currently being undermined by the government agency and its special interest groups. New rules proposed by the FDA announced just this month include:
  • Reducing the scientific rigor for determinations which allow synthetic ingredients in our food, and non-organic food into production for the masses.
  • A reduction in the transparency of decision making about what food we eat.
  • Limitations in public participation concerning how policies and procedures affecting our food supply are implemented.
  • Stonewalling the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) and organic community to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on organic issues that affect everyone, not just corporate bottom lines.
  • Change organic food policy from one driven by public demand to one controlled by the FDA and USDA – giving critical decision making skills to organizations which have proven to be infiltrated by special interests.
Any trust remaining in the organic food label will be undermined if the new rules are allowed to be put into action. Farmers are already struggling to grow organic food with the likes of Monsanto and Dow pushing their agendas down government officials’ throats. We must make food policy a democratic, and open decision making policy that ignores the corporate oligarchy which has insinuated itself into the government, and the food making industry itself.

Read: The Only 100% Organic Emergency Food

The allowance of synthetic materials in our food is already ridiculously out of whack, and we need not allow more of it to creep onto our dinner plates. From farmers, to food producers to environmentalists, and even consumers – we can stop this mayhem and take our crops back, but only if the USDA is stopped.

Please, tell the USDA to set a moratorium on the adoption of the new policies announced on its website on March 6 and in the September 16, 2013 Federal Register, and allow time for open public discussion and input.

Please also give your Congressional representatives,  and the organic companies whose products you purchase, as well as the places where you shop support if they sell organic, or support the moratorium.

You can send a message asking for a moratorium on USDA changes to your elected representatives, and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack by clicking here.

You can also inform yourself more accurately about this issue by visiting beyondpesticides.org, or simply read (78 FR 56811). The future of our food depends on your actions today.

Gardasil: My Doctors In Denmark Said There Were No Side Effects by Sanni Charlotte Falcke

Gardasil: No Side Effects?


Gardasil: My doctors said there were no side effects

By Sanni Charlotte Falcke
Kalundborg, Denmark

Sane Vax, Inc.   25 March 2014


I am a 29 year old girl from Denmark who was harmed by the HPV vaccine Gardasil… Here is my story:
 
For as long as I can remember I have struggled with my mind. I have Paranoid Schizophrenia. It hasn’t always been easy being me. Whatever I have experienced in the past bears no comparison with how I am feeling now as it is no longer a mental problem but a physical problem and this change in my health has occurred after being vaccinated with Gardasil.
 
Because I was infected with a strain of the HPV virus and developed cervical dysplasia, I had to have a cone biopsy. After my surgery the doctor very kindly but firmly said that I should get this new vaccine because I was in the risk zone.  I went home and thought about it but decided not to get it because it was very expensive.
 
After a year or two the Danish government decided to make the vaccine free for girls in my age group but it was a time limited offer so I contacted my doctor to hear more about it.  I asked her if there were any side effects but she just replied,
“No, this vaccine has no side effects. You may get some redness or swelling at the injection site but nothing else.” 
When a doctor says that, you believe it, so I got the first shot on 16th October 2012.
In the evening I began to feel sick, I had nausea and I threw up and developed a fever and chills. This continued for 3 days. When I finally felt a little better from having the fever, I began to feel dizzy and for no apparent reason I would just blackout out of the blue. When I had fainted 3 times I went to the doctor (not even thinking it could be the vaccine).  She took some metabolism tests because I have low metabolism and some additional tests to check out the vitamins in my body and to see if perhaps I was becoming a diabetic.   Every single test was fine but she said that my metabolism could be too low and even although the tests were fine she decided to increase the dosage of this particular medication I was taking.  As I fainted a couple of times more I went back to the doctor again and her conclusion at that time was that it could be a virus or something wrong with my ears.
 
It was time for my second shot on 17th December 2012. When I arrived at the doctor’s office, I asked the guy who was going to give me the shot if the influenza symptoms I had last time could be because of the vaccine. He said that the vaccine didn’t have any side effects and he had never heard of anybody getting ill, so it must have been influenza.
 
The same thing happened again. I got so sick but this time I also had a very powerful stomach pain. The weeks following this shot I just felt so awful, I was so dizzy that people actually thought I was drunk.  I began to have daily headaches and sometimes had a bad migraine. I couldn’t concentrate, had trouble remembering things, got extremely tired and could sleep anywhere any time. But not even then did I make the possible connection with the vaccine.
 
I went to the doctor about 10 times more, all regarding the symptoms above, but she said the same thing each time: “I can’t do any more for you Sanni. You have to contact an audiologist.” 
 
But in the middle of it all I was moving home and I had to put everything on hold until I was settled in my new home.
 
On 10th April 2013, it was time for my third and final shot.  I had a new doctor and I asked him the same thing I had asked my previous doctor, if the cause of my symptoms were the vaccine. My doctor answered with the same answer: “No, this vaccine has no side effects.”
 
So I went ahead and got the final shot.
 
Of course the same thing happened this time also, I got very ill, and with the same symptoms as the second time I had the shot.
 
When the influenza-like symptoms were over, I began fainting a lot again. I was very dizzy and couldn’t hold my balance. I got more and more tired, developed breathing problems and hyperventilated a lot. I didn’t have the strength for anything anymore and even my daily walks with my dog or playing with my stepson became impossible.  I was afraid to walk up and down our stairs so I didn’t get out as I used to. So I went back to the doctor, who did a billion tests and of course all of them were fine.
 
The whole family was in the yard and I decided to go down to meet them. We were just standing there chatting and suddenly I got very dizzy and blacked out. My mother in law saw what happened to me.  She rang 911 (or 112 here in Denmark) and they came very quickly. My blood pressure and ECG were fine but they decided to take me to the hospital anyway. At the hospital they did a lot of tests, but found nothing.
 
My boyfriend, family and myself were now feeling very uneasy and scared at what was going on. My family is just becoming so nervous at letting me be alone in case I should fall and injure myself badly. They watch over me constantly. 
 
I have always been a happy girl who could do whatever she set her mind to, but now I have to think very carefully about attempting daily tasks.  My bicycle days are over and I can’t even take the train because I am scared I will fall down onto the rails.
 
After Gardasil, I have had many problems but the one thing that stands out in my mind was when I had problems with serious cramps in my legs, paralysis in my legs and the feeling I got in my legs when I woke up in the morning and had to actually beat them to get them to waken up. Fortunately it’s “only” a sleeping sensation in my legs now, I haven’t got the same problems anymore… but the symptoms keep on coming and changing every week.
 
My whole life has changed. The life I could have had is always on my mind. What if I had not been vaccinated would I then have been able to get a job?  What if I had just listened to my subconscious worries, would I then have been able to have a child? 
 
A lot of things keep going through my mind and I can’t stop blaming myself a little bit for not researching this vaccine a bit more. But when I get mad at myself I try to turn this anger towards the company that made this vaccine, the government that provides the vaccine and the doctors who keep on wrongly reassuring young girls that this vaccine is safe and has no side effects.
 
But in my entire struggle there is some light ahead.  I had an appointment at the neurologist’s office today and as a birthday gift I finally got that (referral) that I have been asking for, for the last year.  I got a (referral) to the hospital for a tilt table test (vippelejetest) to establish whether I have POTS (Postural Tachycardia Syndrome) because of my fast heart rate and the trouble I am having with dizziness when I am standing up and of course the number of times I have fainted. I have also received a referral to yet another hospital to establish whether I have some neurological damage. I am so happy, finally I am getting somewhere.
 
Now I just need to get even better, it’s not easy, but I’m a fighter!
 
I really feel for all the girls all over the world that were harmed by this vaccine. I never ever thought that this could happen to me. I am sure they did not think they could be hurt either. Like them, I trusted my doctors, I trusted them when they said that the vaccine was safe, I trusted them when they said there were no side-effects.
 
Now I am much wiser, I just wish there had been somebody who had told me the truth before I decided to go ahead with the Gardasil vaccine.

Brazil Public Prosecutor Asks For A Total Ban On Herbicides

Foto: Brazil's Public Prosecutor has requested a total ban on glyphosate based herbicides. The Public Prosecutor has also sought an injunction on 2,4-D as well as several other herbicides that are all suspected of damaging human health and environment, pending further toxicity studies and seeks to prohibit the release of 2,4-D resistant GMO crops. YAY! for Brazil. Let's hope they follow in Sri Lanka's footsteps and drop the ban hammer on Roundup and all glyphosate based herbicides. This leads us to ask: How many countries will BAN ROUNDUP before the U.S. decides it's not ok to feed us carcinogenic, endocrine disrupting, genotoxic, neurotoxic and infertility producing Roundup and finally does the same?

There Is But One Way - A Quote from M.N. Hopkins

The Healing Power Of Passionflower by Susan Patterson


The Healing Power Of Passionflower

by Susan Patterson

Off The Grid News,  21 March  2014


Gardeners in warmer regions of the world have always enjoyed the beautiful flowers and exotic fruits of the passionflower vine. Those who could not grow it outdoors often reserved some space in their greenhouses for this tropical trailer. Now the medicinal value of passionflowers is getting more attention, and that’s an additional reason to include it in every garden.

There are several varieties of passionflower in cultivation; some for their flowers of unmatched beauty, and others for the edible fruit. Though the commercially available passionfruit is produced by Passiflora edulis, also known as purple granadilla, the one used for medicinal purposes goes by the name Passiflora incarnata. The smaller-sized fruits of Passiflora incarnata are also edible. However, to prepare the potent concoctions, all aerial parts except the fruit are used.

The medicinal uses of passionflower may have received much attention lately, but by no means were they discovered recently. The native people of North America and Mexico have used it in their traditional medicine from time immemorial as a sedative and to treat stomach problems. It is interesting to note that the native name for passionfruit is shared by both the Ocoee River and valley.

One plant, many uses

According to Dhawan, who published his study on passionflower in the Journal of Medicinal Food (2001), Germans used it to treat “insomnia of infants and epilepsy of the aged” in the 18th century. He also reports it being used for different purposes in different countries. In Turkey it was used in the treatment of epilepsy, but in Iraq it had its uses as a narcotic. Brazilians used it against worms and asthma. But the most common use of the passionflower extract across cultures has been to treat insomnia and anxiety. Its sedative property also has been widely exploited.

In the United States, passionflower extract is currently used as a sedative and to relieve anxiety. In Germany, besides its use as a sedative, a homeopathic formulation derived from the plant is popular as a pain remedy too. ADHD, hysteria, irregular heartbeat, palpitations, gastrointestinal problems, menstrual problems and fibromyalgia are some of the other mental and physical conditions that get relief through the use of passionflower extract.

Topical application has been found to be effective in relieving pain and inflammation, soothing hemorrhoids, and treating burns.

What scientific studies say
Limited studies have been conducted to determine the effect of passionflower extract on anxiety. A double-blind trial was conducted in 2001 by Akhondzadeh & Naghavi to compare the effects of benzodiazepine and passionflower extract. It showed a daily dose of 45 drops to be having the same effect as 30 mg of benzodiazepine.

Opium-addict patients undergoing anti-addiction treatment with clonidine reported significant reduction in anxiety levels and withdrawal symptoms when passionflower extract was administered alongside. Another study by Movafegh in 2008 showed a similar reduction in pre-operative anxiety when the extract was given 1 ½ hours prior to surgery.

Availability

Prior to1978, passionflower extract was available over-the-counter as an approved medication to treat anxiety and insomnia. Stricter drug laws, and the lack of sufficient research data to prove the safety and efficacy of the medicine as well as its interactions with other medicines, have caused it to be called off. But it is still available as a herbal medicine, in capsule and tablet form. Tinctures and essential oil are also available. Dried plant parts in powder form can be purchased for making teas, too.

There is no restriction on cultivating the passionflower vine and brewing herbal teas with its leaves and flowers. Traditionally, a brew is made with a handful of flowers and leaves by boiling them for 15 minutes in 4 cups of water. Drink a cup at bedtime for a relaxing sleep.

How did it get its name? Catholic missionaries found a representation of Christ’s passion in the unusual structure of this flower that grew wild in South America. According to a drawing included in the works of the 17th century Roman scholar Jacomo Bosio, the sepals and petals of this “passionflower” represent 10 of the 12 disciples, excluding Judas and Peter. The crown of thorns is depicted by the corona, while the five stamens stand for the five wounds, and the three headed stigma for the three nails that held Him to the cross. Even the leaves and tendrils have their place in the symbolism as the spear and the scourges.

Precautions against using too much

As the saying goes, “Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.” It applies to passionflower extract, too. Use in moderation; limit the use to 2-4 cups of herbal tea a day to relieve anxiety and to get good sleep.

An alkaloid called harmaline is the active ingredient in passionflower that induces sedation. It may have a cumulative effect when combined with other sedative medications, including herbal formulations having a similar function such as valerian, catnip, St. John’s wort, etc.

Pregnant and lactating mothers should avoid passionflower extracts and teas. The potent bio-active compounds can cause uterine contractions.

The Simple Path - A Guest Post by Paul Bucalo



The Simple Path

A simple series of thoughts inspired by an overwhelming view in the sky. The picture cannot do justice to the huge clouds and late afternoon sunshine that accentuated their boundaries, nor how close they were to me, as if to show how insignificant I was in the majestic scale of existence they held reign over.
