Beware toxic plastic offgassing

Have you noticed that nauseating “perfume” smell coming from new trash bags and other plastic items like gardening ground cloth these days? You might think that it just smells bad, but it’s probably toxic as well. You might also think that it’s just a misguided marketing gimmick, but it may actually fulfill a purpose. Think big.

Reproductive sterility and other symptoms of endocrine disruption are already epidemic in this country, and this is certainly one of the reasons for it. Draw your own conclusions.

Is that Smelly Plastic from China Toxic?

Ever wonder why some plastic goods made in China have that awful smell? This is especially the case with many rubberized plastics.

Research and testing is increasingly illustrating that these materials may not just smell bad. They may also be outgassing potent toxins and carcinogens. Continue reading Beware toxic plastic offgassing

12 Ways to Unlock the Powers of the Vagus Nerve

Those of us who were traumatized by a harsh birthing system and/or circumcision might benefit from tuning up the vagus nerve. Even just to gently massage in front of the ear or to sing and hum can be helpful. This planet, at this time in history, is not all that conducive to relaxation – and that is what the vagus nerve prefers – relaxation, peace of mind.

The vagus nerve is the most important nerve you probably didn’t know you had…

Vagus nerve dysfunction can result in a whole host of problems including obesity, bradycardia (abnormally slow heartbeat), difficulty swallowing, gastrointestinal diseases, fainting, mood disorders, B12 deficiency, chronic inflammation, impaired cough, and seizures.

Meanwhile, the vagus nerve stimulation has been shown to improve conditions such as:

  • Anxiety disorder
  • Heart disease
  • Tinnitus
  • Obesity
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Migraines
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Leaky gut
  • Bad blood circulation
  • Mood disorder
  • Cancer
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), is used to treat epilepsy, depression and arthritis.

12 Vagus Nerve Stimulation Techniques

The vagus nerve doesn’t need to be shocked into shape. It can also be toned and strengthened similar to a muscle. Here are some simple things you can do that might improve your health markedly: Continue reading 12 Ways to Unlock the Powers of the Vagus Nerve

How to Fall Asleep Fast in 10, 60, or 120 Seconds

Good information here for those who have difficulty getting to sleep – at night, or when taking naps. Excerpt:

The popular military method, which was first reported by Sharon Ackerman, comes from a book titled “Relax and Win: Championship Performance.”

According to Ackerman, the U.S. Navy Pre-Flight School created a routine to help pilots fall asleep in 2 minutes or less. It took pilots about six weeks of practice, but it worked — even after drinking coffee and with gunfire noises in the background.

This practice is said to even work for people who need to sleep sitting up!

The military method

  1. Relax your entire face, including the muscles inside your mouth.

  2. Drop your shoulders to release the tension and let your hands drop to the side of your body.

  3. Exhale, relaxing your chest.

  4. Relax your legs, thighs, and calves.

  5. Clear your mind for 10 seconds by imagining a relaxing scene.

  6. If this doesn’t work, try saying the words “don’t think” over and over for 10 seconds.

  7. Within 10 seconds, you should fall asleep!

82-Year-Old Woman With Dementia Gets Her Memory Back After Changing Her Diet

Sick of being sick? Read this story with a happy ending for inspiration and valuable information. Healing is certain when you return to the basics.

Recently, an 82-year-old woman who suffered from dementia, who couldn’t recognize her own son has miraculously got her memory back after changing her diet…. [Read more at link, below.]

This story just goes to show how resilient our bodies really are if given the right environment. Most of these types of diseases are often related to diet in the first place so that means that they can indeed be reversed with a proper diet. Sure, some of them are genetic and you might be a carrier of the gene, but that is not a guarantee that it will become active, there are things you can do to minimize the risk. Our health is our greatest wealth. We have to realize that we do have a say in our lives and what our fate is.

We have covered the topic before of how aluminum build up in the brain is directly related to dementia and more specifically Alzheimer’s disease, being able to identify this as a cause is important because recognizing this means we can do our part to limit the exposure and to also detoxify our brains and bodies from this damaging heavy metal…

Higher Levels of Fluoride Consumption Linked with ADHD in Children & more

According to University of Toronto and York University researchers, higher levels of fluoride during pregnancy have been linked with more ADHD-like symptoms in school-age children.

“Our findings are consistent with a growing body of evidence suggesting that the growing fetal nervous system may be negatively affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure,” said Dr. Morteza Bashash, the study’s lead author and researcher at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health.

The study, “Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Symptoms in Children at 6-12 Years of Age in Mexico City,” published in Environment International, analyzed data from 213 mother-child pairs in Mexico City that were part of the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project, which recruited pregnant women from 1994 to 2005 and has continued to follow the women and their children ever since.

Tap water and dental products have been fluoridated in communities in Canada and the United States (as well as milk and table salt in some other countries) by varying amounts for more than 60 years in an attempt to prevent cavities. These assumptions were later dismissed by hundreds of scientific publications which showed that internal consumption of fluoridated water had no effect on tooth decay.

In recent years, fierce debate over the safety of water fluoridation — particularly for children’s developing brains — has fueled researchers to explore the issue and provide evidence to inform national drinking water standards.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says dental fluorosis is highest among adolescents between the ages of 12 an 15. One reason for the increase in fluorosis: Americans are now exposed to fluoride from a variety of sources, including toothpaste, mouth rinses and prescription supplements, the Department of Health and Human Services says.

Fluoride was found to be an equivocal carcinogen by the National Cancer Institute Toxicological Program. “In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer death, and causes it faster than any other chemical,” stated Dr. Dean Burk PhD who spent over three decades with the national cancer institute…

Measures to Reduce EMF Exposure

The link at the end of this article steers you to a page that is a good resource for minimizing your exposure to electromagnetic frequencies/ radiation (EMF/EMR), so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Excellent bits of advice. Save the page in your computer or print it out… just in case of a power outage.

Years ago, I purchased a meter that was advertised on amazon.com as a “ghost meter” to measure the EMF/EMR in my environment. It was an education to walk around my home and see what was causing my discomfort. One of the first things to go was the electric alarm clock.  Anything that makes sound, light, heat or motion, produces unnatural EMR. I bought a battery-operated clock that still serves me well. I removed all the rheostats and timers and replaced them with regular “on/off” switches. I moved from wifi to wired ethernet (which is actually faster than wifi).

Pray they switch soon from the microwave frequency to a safer system for electrical and electronic equipment. This stuff is not only undermining YOUR health, but also the health of your pets, plants and property. See “California wildfires”… how did they really begin? People in CA are very aware of the dangers of “smart meters” and PG&E is facing many, many lawsuits. Oh, and by the way, a head decision-maker at PG&E is also Vice-Chairman of Rothschild, Inc. Look it up.

What your utility company CEO never told you about electromagnetic-microwave radiation AND how to protect your family

Dana Ashlie did some excellent research after she realized her health challenges were due to the wireless technology in her home. This information is what the tech industry works very hard to keep you from knowing – but it is information you need to know. I am one who has been heavily exposed to radiation over the years, working at Fortune 500 companies to the point that I am very aware of the effects of technology. Please do what you can to protect yourself and your loved ones – at work, at home and at play.
