Fasting Blood Sugar Numbers – Did You Know?

Posted in Diabetes, Food Addiction, Knowledge is Power Series, Weight Loss on 22.06.16

I Didn’t Know That …

A fasting blood sugar level over 100mg/dl is considered a pre-diabetic condition.a fasting blood sugar level over 100mg/dl is considered a pre-diabetic condition. I didn’t realize how devastatingly close that is to 126mg/dl which is the diagnosis number for diabetes. I also didn’t know that numbers much lower than these are what start the process of illness in the body. That’s right, blood sugar levels determine what your risk is for heart disease, cancer, kidney and nerve damage as well as dementia and stroke.

Having a hard time losing weight? Do you feel like you are aging faster than you should be? The process of getting diabetes begins with insulin resistance. It has been said by many doctors that understand the process of blood sugar malfunctions in the body that it is the major cause of aging and death in the developed world.

Diabetes has to be one of the, if not THE, most preventable disease that is being talked about and managed today. Obesity and diabetes go hand in hand. Did you know that gaining just 11 to 16 pounds doubles your risk for getting type 2 diabetes? Gaining 17 to 24 pounds triples that risk! Now I ask you, if that is the case, why do we have soda machines in offices and schools throughout our country? Why do we promote liquid sugar drinks, liquid calories, that are instantly absorbed into the blood stream? Products such as soda, most juices, sports drinks, and the like along with refined carbohydrates like bread, rice, potatoes, pasta are the most consumed foods and beverages in this country.

We need to wake up and start making major changes in this country if we are going to live long and prosper. Otherwise, who will be caring for us as the year’s progress and we get sicker and sicker and sicker and sicker. And I have to ask myself what our quality of life will be like then? Do you really want to live in a body that is in constant pain and rotting from the inside out? Well, I guess in the big scheme of things, you won’t even know it because dementia will set in and you’ll be clueless? Right? Hummmm now that is something to ponder and something we won’t know until we get there.

Now You Know …

Majority, Minority, Majority Healthcare Food Reflect Take Action

12114_10152080644434130_927587039_n“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” Mark Twain.  I love that quote. Mark was a wise man. I reflect daily on the plight of health in America today. I reflect on what the pharmaceutical industry dishes out in the name of health with the use of synthetic drugs. I reflect on what the bio-tech giants are making in their labs and expecting us to eat without a thought. I reflect when a doctor expects me to “cut out” a body part that is giving me problems insisting it is the only way. I reflect when industry big wigs suddenly become those in charge of guarding the hen houses of agencies such as the FDA, the AMA, the CIA, and the EPA, to name a few. I reflect when political giants are sitting on the boards of industrial, pharmaceutical and medical companies or are receiving money for anything even remotely related in support of those companies. I am always reflecting, always paying attention to those that put profits ahead of health.

Today I find myself in the minority of people that are taking their health into their own hands. I put my health ahead of profits. I put what food goes into my body ahead of the bottom line. I refuse to take substances that do not repair my body but instead cover up the issues. You can’t cover up or cut out an issue. It will just move from one place on to the next.

I have chosen to put my great health and wellness in the hands of local farmers for my food source.  For my health care needs, the New Medicine Foundation is my number one choice.  Dr. Edward W. Pearson and the team at NMF are ever present and leading the way, changing the face of medicine.

Visit Local Harvest for info about their farm to family food programs http://www.localharvest.org/

Tell them Coach Donna from A Voice For Change sent you.

Connect with me and I’ll share the great things that NMF and the wonderful doctors that are affiliated with the NMF team are doing, virtually around the world.   I was so impressed with the organization and how great I started to feel when I got clean and educated, that I became a health coach for them.  Now I am the lead Health Style Counselor for NMF.  Let me tell you more.

Eleven States Join the Push for Medical Monopoly

Eleven States Join the Push for Medical Monopoly!
Will It Ever End?

medical monopoly, healthcare monopolyThis monopoly is not a game!  I had no idea this was going on. The last thing we need is another monopoly. This medical monopoly is being pushed along by a secretive, private, and powerful organization called the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB).

Don’t be deceived. While this is a federation of all seventy state and territorial medical and osteopathic boards, it is not very clear who is behind it— the best guess right now is that it is the American Medical Society working together with Big Pharma.

You might be surprised to hear that the FSMB has historically been hostile to integrative medicine. Despite having no public funding, transparency, or accountability, FSMB also wields a tremendous amount of power over the practice of medicine in all fifty states. The organization has demonstrated its antipathy toward natural health since the mid-1990s, when it discussed altering the definition of health fraud to include alternative medical care!

This is big! Once again, big pharma and the powers that be are trying to corral us into the pen and control what we can and cannot choose for our style of medical care. I for one will stand up til the end in defense of alternative medicine. I have been down the conventional medical path before and always found that it just did not work for me. They sliced and diced and medicated my body but never did anything to get to the root of my issues.

It wasn’t until I went to alternatives the likes of Dr. Edward W. Pearson and the New Medicine Foundation that my health turned around. At 62 years young, I am a testament to the fact that what alternative medicine and in particular, the New Medicine Foundation has to offer works.

Want to know more, email me… donna.appel@newmedicinefoundation.com.  I’ll give you all the details you need to get educated and healthy. Want to know more about the medical monopoly, click here.

TPP Deal Finally Revealed – 10 Reasons To Be Concerned And Take Action

Posted in Environmental, GMOs, Knowledge is Power Series, Political America, Take Action! on 02.12.15

TPP Deal Finally Revealed – Not Funny!

TPPDetails of the long-secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are finally made public.  Here are some details you may not be aware of. 10 reasons to be concerned about the TPP deal and take action.

  1. TPP provisions were apparently kept secret from all but the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
  1. Leaked documents during the trade negotiations provided reason to be concerned about the final TPP agreement. A review of the deal’s twenty-nine chapters and five thousand pages proves these early concerns were completely justified.
  1. Generally speaking, passage of the TPP would mean that any US food safety law concerning things like pesticides, food additives, or labeling that is more stringent than “international standards” may be considered an “illegal barrier” to trade, and subject to enforcement.
  1. The deal includes an investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system in which multinational corporations can challenge a host company’s regulations in an international court. ISDS has been a fixture in other trade treaties, including NAFTA (the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement). It has been used to challenge countries’ economic policies, anti-smoking efforts, and environmental preservation laws.
  1. The trade agreement also undercuts US efforts to inspect food imports. The agreement limits food import inspections at the border “to what is reasonable and necessary”. If an issue arises, a country must also provide an “opportunity for a review of the decision.” This provision, referred to as the Rapid Response Mechanism, may give exporting countries the right to challenge basic food safety provisions in the US.
  1. The TPP contains an entire chapter on intellectual property rights, with many provisions relating to pharmaceutical patents. No doubt heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry, the trade deal will force signatory countries to accept many of the same patent laws that have kept drug prices so astronomically high in the US.
  1. The deal would extend and broaden certain patent and data protections for the pharmaceutical industry. Big Pharma can then use them to keep prices high and delay competition from generics.
  1. The TPP also allows a practice known as “evergreening”. Evergreening lets drug companies extend a patent on an old drug when it can be used to treat a new condition. Evergreening is another boon for Big Pharma’s monopoly power.
  1. The TPP deal expands biotech’s monopoly over the seed industry. The deal requires all twelve countries to join a number of global intellectual property treaties. One of these treaties is the 1991 International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV91), which emphasizes the rights of seed companies over farmers.  This particular treaty
  • Requires intellectual property (IP) protection for all plant species;
  • Provides IP protection for 20 to 25 years; and
  • Stops farmers from exchanging seeds. Exchanging seeds is a common and important practice in many developing nations and indeed throughout human history.
  1. If these gifts to industry were not enough, President Obama moved earlier this summer to have the deal “fast-tracked”.   Fast-tracked means that Congress will be given a fixed period to review the agreement. Legislators must make a yes/no vote without the possibility of amending the deal in the alloted time given. Essentially, it’s “take it or leave it.”

Want to learn more?  Click here:  http://www.anh-usa.org/tpp-a-disaster-for-natural-health/   We need your help to urge Congress to oppose the TPP deal. The TPP deal undermines consumers and farmers and extends monopoly rights to major industries.  Click here to take action now before it is too late. http://www.anh-usa.org/tpp-a-disaster-for-natural-health/

Knowledge to help build a better, safer, kinder world that could save our lives!

Posted in Environmental, Health, Knowledge is Power Series, Misc Articles, Political America, SOLUTION!, Take Action! on 23.11.15

x27873780DEFINING POLITICS:     Knowing What We Are Talking About  Could Save Our Lives

This was written by Foster Gamble, a fellow Thrive Movement member (actually a founding father). I felt it so well written with so much valuable information included, that I just had to make it my job to share it with everyone.  Knowledge is power. I hope you will do the same.  Write to me and let me know your thoughts.  Ask me to send you a list of additional information that you can read, watch and listen to, that is being shared with others around the world.  Together, we can and will make a difference.

’Tis the season once again when the people of middle North America spend extraordinary amounts of their time in political discussions. Despite all the awkwardness and frustration that ensues, it seems almost everyone is after pretty much the same thing: a better, safer, kinder world. Most people want others to have sufficient income, better education, access to healthcare, and freedom from hunger, war and tyranny. They just don’t agree on how to accomplish it.

DemosAdding to the alienation people tend to experience, is the fact that we don’t even have a clear definition of the terms we use to discuss these hot topics. Among the front-running U.S. presidential candidates, Bernie Sanders is a self-proclaimed Socialist — an Independent Social Democrat —while Donald Trump was a Democrat turned conservative Republican capitalist. Rand Paul is a Libertarian turned Republican. Progressive used to mean Conservative; Conservatives used to call themselves Liberals; Liberal used to mean what Libertarian means today and now Repubsthe Neo-Cons are called neo-liberals. What in the world do these terms really mean?

If we are going to have fruitful conversations, where we actually learn from one another and move toward a more secure, prosperous and harmonious society, then I think, at a minimum, we need to KNOW WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.

Supporting Drug Free Meat

Antibiotics used in PigsHelp me help all of us.  We are all under the threat from antibiotic-resistant superbugs, making us vunerable to common, once treatable infections. A remarkable 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used by the meat and poultry industry so that factory farm animals can grow faster and survive crowded and unsanitary conditions.  Support meat without drugs http://www.meatwithoutdrugs.org/#watch. Lets unite and stop the abuse before it is too late. Tell your supermarkets and local farmers, “drug free meat for me!”   We can be the catalysts to turn the tide on this abuse. We can show our support for companies that don’t take our health for granted.

This is another must see quick video compliments of Chipotle:

IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)…

 

Water-theMovie… water had the capability that it has and seems to be the center of the universe and the key to health, healing and the support of all life. Oh yes, I knew it was necessary for life but after viewing this fantastic documentary, I will never look at water the same. Water has now gained my total respect and awe and you can bet I will be loving it and in constant gratitude for every drop I come in contact with or even think about.
