This  is an on-going weekly teleconference devoted to over-all health, weight and your sanity.

BLOG IV – Leaky Gut Syndrome – How It Affects Health and Weight 

Please refer to the other blogs in this series for beginning recordings along with my recap/diary for past weeks.  That will get you started with information about the program and how I am personally progressing.  Moving forward what I plan on doing is taking a segment of the program and talking about it in detail.  This week is focusing on Leaky Gut and how it affect health and weight.  Last week it was a talk on Leptin, what it is, what it does, etc.  Here is the leaky gut recording. Hope it helps.

3/23/2016 – Let’s Get The Weight Off Forever – Meet Up March 23, 2016

Recommendations for Reading & Watching:

  1.  EPI – Paleo Rx – The Prescription for Disease Reversal and Optimal Health by Dr. Jack Kruse – I have been told that this book is very technical and difficult to read for some. If you are not a detail person and just want the procedures, tune into these blogs and skip purchasing the book.
  2. COLOSTRUM – Good information relating to colostrum as another tool to help heal leaky gut – if you would like to know where to get it, contact Coach Donna Appel for her source.  https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/six-ways-colostrum-fights-cancer/

Following is my diary for the week documenting my routine and the results:

03/23/16 – I am still traveling and am now staying with my dad in New Jersey.  Trying to do the cold baths requires that I do a little shopping to equip the bathroom.  That won’t happen until the weekend.  I have done some shopping and continue to eat Paleo per the Epi-Paleo Rx book I mentioned last week. All is going fine. Need to shop and start to prepare foods again. Will be getting my father into the program as best I can.  84 is not a good time to start teaching an old dog new tricks.

03/24/16 – I am itching to do some more cold thermo baths.  Believe it or not, I am missing them.  I shopped today and will be preparing healthier meals tomorrow.  I need to get a new crock pot.  They seem to be an essential tool for ease in preparing healthy paleo meals.

03/25/16 – I am up by 7:30 to 8am now. Eating within a half hour of rising and not eating again until dinner.  Feeling very good although not getting any exercise to speak of.

03/26/16 – I was able to get to Bed, Bath and Beyond to pick up the over-flow restricter for the bath tub.  I was able to do the cold therm bath after dinner.  The faucet bath water was around 48 degrees. The tub was around 50 and I was able to get my skin temp to 56.  All was fine but when I got out and dried off, put on my PJ’s and socks and slippers, I found that I was unusually cold.  I believe it was due to the fact that I was not moving around.  It was bedtime.  I did go to bed a bit early but found that I was unable to get warm.  I had a restless sleep and won’t be doing that again. I think in the future I will do these cold thermo baths in the morning after breakfast.

03/27/16 – It is Easter – prepared a paleo dinner but also be prepared mashed potatoes for my dad (his favorite with gravy) so I will be indulging in that carb dish and will also be having strawberry short cake for dessert.  It is a holiday so I tend to forget strict adherence to diet, opting to remember the holiday and enjoy it without guilt.  Mission accomplished although I did have my usual high protein breakfast in the morning and we ate a bit later in the day so I only consumed 2 meals as I usually do. No negative side affects that night.  All is well.

03/28/16 –  All is still going well.  I had a breakfast engagement at 9:00am so I was unable to do a cold thermo bath. I will postpone that til tomorrow morning.  Back to normal eating paying attention to eating good quality protein and fat and a few veggies at dinner.  I tend to eat high protein at breakfast, especially with the cold thermo baths in the plan.

03/29/16 –  I had eggs and sausage for breakfast although I did not eat to capacity. I was not in the mood.  BUT I did do a morning cold thermo bath after breakfast.  This approach is much more tolerable for me.  I spent 40 minutes in the tub which was filled to capacity. I got my body temp to 56 degrees.  I was not cold in the water at all. It is actually amazing to me. I did wash my hair first in tepid water in the show and then started to fill the tub with cold water. Once I get 3 or 4 inches of water filling it, I switch to just cold water.  When I start out it is cold but not pure cold – I’d guess the water is approx 65 degrees for the first few inches.  My body tends to acclimate better doing that.  I am not a fill up the tub with cold water and get in kind of person. You can but I like the slower approach letting my body adjust a little at a time.  Once done, I dressed for the day and then went to work at my computer.  I was up and down though and active. It was much better this time around. I will continue with morning cold thermo baths after breakfast.

BLOG II – Leptin, the How and Why of this Hormone

Please refer to the first blog in this series for the first two recordings along with my recap/diary for the week of March 9th through the 15th.  That will get you started with information about the program and how I am personally progressing.  Moving forward what I plan on doing is taking a segment of the program and talking about it in detail.  This week is focusing on Leptin itself.  What it is, what it does, etc.

3/16/2016 – Let’s Get The Weight Off Forever – Leptin, What it is and How it Works

Recommendations for Reading & Watching:

  1.  EPI – Paleo Rx – The Prescription for Disease Reversal and Optimal Health by Dr. Jack Kruse
  2. GOT MILK – Great Documentary that everyone should see about the origin of drinking milk – http://www.milkdocumentary.com/trailer/

Following is my diary for the week documenting my routine and the results:

03/16/16 – I was at a charity event last night so I didn’t get a chance to eat dinner other than to have 2 small appetizers that were being passed around.  Once contained cheese with a bread crumb topping – deep fried and the other was also deep fried and contained a wheat coating.  I had two of each and called it a night for eating. I also had 2 white wine spritzers containing about one ounce of wine each and topped off with club soda.  I wasn’t really hungry, came home and went to bed. I was exhausted from never going to bed the night before and was in bed by 10pm.  I also didn’t want to eat so close to bed time.  Since I wasn’t that hungry, I just drank a glass of water and went to bed.  I felt fine this morning but was a bit on the hungry side.  I had an omelet for breakfast (no potatoes, toast or cheese).  That was at 9:00am.  It is now 6:00pm and I am going to dinner with friends at 7:00pm.  Unlike my past, I will be fine until I am able to eat dinner that will consist of seafood and salad.  My breakfast was all protein (required for reversing leptin resistance) so my dinner will contain some veggies. Since I’m traveling, I won’t be able to do a cold thermo bath until Saturday evening.

03/17/16 – I’ve been vacationing and enjoying my friends and not paying much attention to food.  I am not able to eat as promptly as if I were home as there are others that are joining me so I have to wait.  I am still maintaining my 2 meal a day schedule.  I am still eating a high protein breakfast and find that I am not hungry until 7 or 8pm so all is good.  No sugar/starch cravings either.  All is good.

03/18/16 – Again, enjoying my time off but not paying much attention to food intake.  Same as above with regard to eating, etc.  I can tell I have not gained any weight and I’m easily maintaining what I have loss thus far.

03/19/16 – Ditto on the above.

03/20/16 – Ditto on the above.

03/21/16 –  All is still going well.  Because of the traveling I am doing, I haven’t been able to get the food I need as easily.  I’m not eating the wrong foods as I have no desire.  But I am also not eating as I would like to be.  As a result, my energy levels are off a bit and I’m just not feeling 100%.  I know this will change by Wednesday though.  Remember life is a journey.  Don’t fret over the small stuff and what I am experiencing in the big scheme of things, really is small stuff.

03/22/16 –  Well it is happy birthday to my dad.  I arrived today and he was very surprised.  But like I said above, due to traveling I haven’t been eating as well as I would like.  I did stop at Wendy’s while driving and ordered a double burger.  I removed the bread and just at the meat.  That was satisfying to my hunger and lasted me til dinner.  We had a birthday dinner for my father and I ate 2 small bites of his cheesecake.  No other desserts.  I don’t miss dessert, don’t crave it – absolutely no sugar or carb cravings.  What a great feeling.  Tomorrow I will get back to cold thero baths I hope.  If I am unable to do one of Wednesday then I will do one on Thursday and get back into the swing of it all.

Got Candida Albicans Yeast Fungus ? Take The Test And Find Out

Candida Albicans Yeast - Stop It Now

Got Candida Albicans Yeast Fungus ?
Take The Test And Find Out

Candida Albicans Yeast Fungus can be the beginning of the end for many suffering from this internal crude.  Suffer no more.  New Medicine Foundation is endorsing and promoting an anti-Candida therapeutic trial program for individuals that are dealing with health issues that have yet to be remedied through other treatments. It has been found that the possibility of an undetected Candida fungus overgrowth might be the culprit affecting patients that have yet to find a remedy to various ailments that are affecting their body. While Candida isn’t necessarily the cause of specific health issues, it can be the source of the inability for the body to heal. If you have ever experienced a yeast overgrowth situation, we know that most will attest to the fact that it can be painful and even debilitating.

Who is KILLING THE HEALERS and Why?  Death Part 2

Posted in Alternative Healthcare, Cancer, Disease, Health, Healthy Alternatives, Knowledge is Power Series, Political America, Vaccines, Vaccines on 13.03.16

Share

dead body outlineWho is KILLING THE HEALERS and Why?
Death Part 2

I can understand the risk of exposing that certain vaccines seem to be causing autism, but what is this cancer treatment they were working with? It’s called GcMAF. It stands for Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor and it’s a human protein that the body makes naturally. Some people lack this protein in part or entirely. In this video, GcMAF for the treatment of cancer, autism, viral and bacterial disease you can see the GcMAF activating the body’s own macropohages, which can then attack and destroy breast cancer cells in vitro:  “GcMAF and/or oral Colostrum MAF macrophage activation therapy is indicated in the treatment of any diseases where there is immune dysfunction or where the immune system is compromised,”  explains the website of a clinic out of Japan that sells an oral form of GcMAF.

What is this GcMAF useful for? Besides cancer, the conditions listed as appropriate candidates for benefit from GcMAF treatment include: Autoimmune diseases,  Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), Hepatitis B virus (HBV), Herpes Simplex virus (HSV), Cystitis, Hepatitis C virus (HCV), Multiple sclerosis (MS), Urinary tract infection (UTI), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Endometriosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Lyme disease (Lyme borreliosis), IgA deficiency disorder, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Mycobacteria infections, Parkinson’s disease, Tuberculosis, Fibromyalgia, Human papillomavirus (HPV), Lupus (Systemic lupus erythematosus  SLE), HIV AIDS, Dengue fever, Pneumonia infection, Warts caused by viral infection, Norovirus, Malaria, Influenza virus (flu), Herpes simplex virus (HSV), Q fever (Coxiella burnetii), Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), Chicken pox (varicella zoster virus), Psoriasis, Respiratory tract infections, Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, Type 1 diabetes (T1DM), Insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM), Type 1.5 diabetes, Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA).

GcMAF is also showing itself to be effective for treating autism. “In a study of 1500 children with autism, 85% had high levels of viruses and a compromised immune system. All 1500 received weekly GcMAF injections and 70% of the children responded to the treatment with reduced symptoms and another 15% made full recoveries. The other 15% did not respond. It was stated that the reduction of autistic symptoms is permanent provided that GcMAF has been taken long enough for the body to produce its own GcMAF which typically takes 24 weeks.”

I personally know individuals who have been dramatically helped by taking GcMAF. Marco Ruggerio delivered a paper at the AutismOne conference in May of 2015 — just before these murders started. Over the summer, patients who were using it had their supplies cut off from their original source in Switzerland where the company was being harassed and threatened. Subsequent shipments from another country were intercepted at the U.S. border, though eventually allowed through.

Authorities in the UK have also been confiscating this beneficial compound. Here is the documentation for a patent involving GcMAF, held by Japanese researcher, Nobuto Yamamoto. Dr. Robert O. Young, holistic practitioner and author of the pH Miracles books, now says he is wearing a body camera. Others have hired bodyguards. Some continue with business as usual. Some have stopped recommending GcMAF to patients out of fear for their lives. This, of course, is most likely the secondary reason for assassinations of holistic doctors — to intimidate others into stopping their alternative practices, their purchase of natural remedies and their speaking out against the traditional cancer sickness industry that banks on the continuing wave of new cases. It is a sad irony of our current upside-down Orwellian police state that some of the families of the victims have tried, without success, to get the FBI to do deeper investigations.

Happy Healing Healthy Patient Comments

Posted in Alternative Healthcare, Detoxification, Disease, HCG, Health, Healthy Alternatives, Hormones, Knowledge is Power Series, New Medicine Foundation, Support Group, Testimonials, Weight Loss, Weight Loss Testimonials on 13.03.16

2 people on puzzleHappy, healing, healthy patient comments are always good to get.  These comments let us know we are on the right track, helping people around the globe to heal and thrive.  We help them put the pieces of their puzzle together.  Here are a few that we recently received.

**Thank you very much Donna! You have really done a great job in making this easier for me and in educating me about my health issues. Also thank you for handling my order with such care. I will begin the candida program later on as discussed. I know in my gut it will clear up many health issues I am experiencing. Thanks again, CK, Oregon   PS: You all “rock” there-

**HI Donna, Doing great. Still in phase two. Feeling good too! This has been a very good experience for me. Thanks for your suggestion back in December to go with the Cortisol so it would help with my sleep. It has been working great. I appreciate your taking the time to help me with that issue Donna. Regards, BR, Arizona

**I had the opportunity to first work with Donna in 2012, while a client of the New Medicine Foundation in the hormone evaluation and balancing program. She was a great liaison in providing good, basic information and sound advice on the options available. Subsequently in 2014/15 Donna coached me through a Detox Program, which is recommended after a period of hormone therapy. I was highly reluctant at first, mostly because I felt that I was mostly in good physical shape. I was also a bit underweight and resident outside the US, therefore not having direct access to service providers. Donna was extremely patient with my many questions and was able to provide me sufficient and satisfactory information to make a decision to proceed. This is probably one of the best health decisions I have ever made. Donna was a true coach and mentor. She responded in quick time to all questions arising, as I progressed through the program. Her knowledge, compassion, encouragement and assurance throughout, was truly remarkable. With my 55th birthday approaching in 2016, I look and feel the best and strongest that I ever have. Thank you Coach D!! Looking forward to working with you in 2016 and beyond. EA, Kingstown (West Indies)

**A few words about my parents Donna. They finished the detox (21 days) and are very happy. My dad lost 9.3 kg and my mom 6kg. They didn’t feel hungry and had lots of energy. They said they feel much better than before the detox, their blood pressure improved, and they are on their Phase II now. So, thank you for introducing us to such great product. I know I had my doubts once or twice, when they had a day when they didn’t loose any weight and even once or twice gained 0.1 kg. But at the end of Phase I everything was fine and they consider it successful. So, thank you again for your support. I didn’t start the program yet, as I was way too busy, and according to your suggestions, we need to wait till the time is right. I plan on Feb 16 – 17, as I should be through my cycle. From your book I found out that the best is to start it right after the period. Thank you again for everything Donna! I’m sure that people will start to ask me questions about what kind of detox I was on, when I finish it, and I will sure recommend you to anyone interested. AS, Illinois

**Dear Donna, I am actually feeling really good! I continue to take the hormones and supplements as advised. Last month, I took an extra dose of hormones for three nights around the time that I usually have a migraine. I managed to get through the cycle with only a minor headache, and did not need to take the Frova. Hooray! Thanks you for the follow-up. I appreciate the help I have received from you and Dr. Edward. KR, Missouri

**I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me and our group. I have lost a total of 13 pounds (I have slid off the protocol a few times which is why I want the VGB top-off). You are a terrific coach and guide and your personal experience and stories are so inspiring and motivating. You speak with an authentic voice and say what you mean and mean what you say and I love that about you. I am so grateful I found you! You are the best Donna! With love and gratitude, CP, New York

**Hey Donna. Wanted to say Thank You for your great program and coaching. You were right, staying on the program a few extra days did the trick for me. I lost a total of 19.5 pounds on the program. Happy with that.  I loved all the info you shared with us about GMO and food industry. If you do have a club or sessions that get together on the web, I would love to know about that.  I have used Tapping for going through a divorce. I have also used it for getting rid of a terrible habit. Use it frequently just to clear the stress of the day. I have a very busy job. I am a OB/Gyn Nurse Practitioner. Thank you so much. Love and Light. KR, Arizona

Let’s Get the Weight Off Forever – Here’s How

pe0058122Let’s get the weight off forever!
This  is an on-going weekly teleconference devoted to over-all health, weight and your sanity.

As a coach working with a board certified medical doctor in the alternative care field, I have come to realize that people are walking around the world lost in a sea of misinformation about food intake and health. Tune in to this series as Coach Donna Appel, Coach D for short, goes through a process of transformation.  She has been in the health and wellness and weight loss field for nearly ten years and has made some life changing discoveries that she wants to share with the world.  Everything she stands behind is virtual and can be done from the comfort of your home.  That is everything from testing kits to get your hormones tested to adrenal and complete blood lab evaluations.

This series is going to focus on losing weight once and for all.  She got hormonally balanced and was eating and living a pretty healthy lifestyle, however, the weight was creeping on once again.  Instead of getting mad, depressed, frustrated and giving up, she set her sites on success and finding out the truth about what and how we should eat, what was the cause of the weight gain and how could she could stop this hideous process regardless of age (she is now 62).

The great news is that she discovered the secret.  AND wants to share it with you.  Here is the first recording in the series. Each week, we’ll be adding recording information AND she’ll be keeping a journal of daily progress right here.  So let’s get started.

3/2/2016 – Get Ready – Let’s Get The Weight Off Forever – Understanding how and why it works


Tonight we went into more detail talking about the origin and why Dr. Jack Kruse dove into this protocol. We talked about the three things you need to do to address chronic weight issues and rid yourself of fat and toxins and weight resistance once and for all.  They include healing leaky gut syndrome, turning off the leptin resistence to regain leptin sensitivity, eating a paleo diet (slightly altered in the beginning according to Dr. Kruse AND adding cold thermogenesis to the overall plan.  Here are the books suggested if you decide you want to dive into this: Epi-Paleo Rx by Dr. Jack Kruse, Mastering Leptin by Byron J and Mary Guignon Richards, The Paleo Solution The Original Human Diet by Robb Wolf.  Let me know if you have any questions after listening to the recording.

3/9/2016 – Get Go – Let’s Get The Weight Off Forever Part 2 – The Fat is Melting Off – Learn Why/How


Following is my diary for the week documenting my routine and the results:

03/09/2016 – I ended up NOT doing the cold bath last night as it was too far between when I had dinner and when I was able to crawl into the tub.  I will save it for Thursday night (tomorrow).

03/10/2016 –  I took a cold thermogenic bath at about 7:30pm. Before the bath, I drank 32oz of ice cold water. I was in the tub for 35 minutes. It is getting easier to take these baths and I am amazed at how quickly I am able to adapt without feeling cold.  I start out sitting in the tub of cool water.  I fill it about an inch and then I turn up the cold.  I have my temperature gun and found the water to come out of the tap at 55 degrees.  I ended up with a body temp of 62 degrees and called it quits after 35 minutes.

03/11/2016 – I have a busy birthday weekend planned for Don so I’m not sure what I will be able to maintain food wise but I did start the weekend with another cold bath around 4:00pm.  This time I added a gallon sized bag of ice and got my body temp to 60 degrees.  The ice melted within about 10 minutes and I was amazed that having the ice touch my already cold skin was not a bother.  I stayed in the cold bath for 40 minutes, got out, got dressed and took a walk.  I am noticing that my muffin top is fading although my weight is not shifting much.  Definitely change taking place.  No body pains to complain about either.  Had a nice Tuscany Italian dinner consisting of a few veggies and fish.  One bite of birthday cake.  All in all I was not hungry or craving anything and was easily able to push food away.  I just didn’t want it.

03/12/16 – Up early and had a breakfast of eggs and steak. We were on the road by 9am for Don’s birthday surprise – 1 hour of small plane flying. He was the pilot after a brief ground instruction from our “real” pilot.  Don really did fly though – took off as well – did it all except land.  I maintained my feeling of being full with no craving other than for water.  I had a cup of tea while on the road and other than that didn’t eat anything until mid afternoon after we got to the winery.  Later that day I ate some cheese (a no-no but all they had), some sliced salami and grapes (typical wine tasting fare). Yes I drank wine, then at a little BBQ around 7pm – no bread or crackers – just BBQ, potato salad and baked beans – and it was just a bite of each.  Again, no hunger or cravings.  Had a bite of birthday cake that was sickening sweet.

03/13/16 – Today I am focusing on work and on cooking better paleo dishes that focus on fish.  I’ll make a fish stew in the crock pot and make sure I have plenty left over for tomorrow.  I’ll be traveling next week but will do my best to stay paleo and maintain what I am currently doing.

03/14/16 – Fish stew was awesome and so simple to make with a crock pot.  I just dumped a bunch of different fishes in the pot from shrimp to oysters, clams, mussels, a slab of fish, and some scallops. Then I added tomatoes, clam juice with red and green peppers and a little onion pureed in a blender, spices to taste, and I topped it off with water – a cup or two to fill the crock.   About 3 hours later dinner was ready.  I had plenty left over to have for today and tomorrow.  Tonight I will do another cold therogenesis bath.  BTW, this morning I was feeling thinner even though I partied for Don’s birthday Friday and Saturday.  The scale didn’t budge BUT I was able to get into my size 6 pants this morning.  I’m thrilled as the muffin top is disappearing.

03/15/16 – Never went to bed last night.  This is a no no and I know better but I had a flight out of DC at 6:20am and had lots to get done in order to leave and be able to enjoy myself for a couple of days.  I’m on a quest to see my daughter who just turned 25 so this is an important trip for me.  BUT I still have a job as a coach and responsibilities with patients getting healthy, going through detoxes, etc so I need to prepare to be ready.  Sleep deprivation should not be something that any of us ever strive for.  Sometimes it is a requirement of life but we always need to be mindful of the fact that we need our rest.  Our body rebuilds and repairs during the sleep cycle. We need to be aware, appreciative of the body we have been given and give it a rest.  I will be sure to make up for it tonight by eating a healthy dinner earlier than usual so I can get a good night’s sleep earlier than usual.  I also didn’t get a chance to do another cold thermo bath.  I’ve done three though and will be talking about this in the coming weeks.  This is it for this blog and this week.  Look for the new blog that begins on March 16th and run through the 22nd with my check in notes/diary.

Michigan Governor & Cronies – Oust Them From Office and Try Them as Criminals

Posted in Cancer, Disease, Environmental, Health, Knowledge is Power Series, Political America, Take Action! on 06.02.16

Expose Corruption SignMichigan Governor & Cronies – Oust Them From Office and Try Them as Criminals NOW

Here is the latest update on the truth about what is going on in Flint Michigan. This was done by the Michael Moore group. I have copied and pasted it here. I can’t say it better than he has and he has done the work and should get the credit. I am just a person being A Voice For Change and helping him educate you. This could happen in your neighborhood and could actually be happening now. Read on….. then share this…..

“News of the poisoned water crisis in Flint has reached a wide audience around the world. The basics are now known: the Republican governor, Rick Snyder, nullified the free elections in Flint, deposed the mayor and city council, then appointed his own man to run the city. To save money, they decided to unhook the people of Flint from their fresh water drinking source, Lake Huron, and instead, make the public drink from the toxic Flint River. When the governor’s office discovered just how toxic the water was, they decided to keep quiet about it and covered up the extent of the damage being done to Flint’s residents, most notably the lead affecting the children, causing irreversible and permanent brain damage. Citizen activists uncovered these actions, and the governor now faces growing cries to resign or be arrested.

Here are ten things that you probably don’t know about this crisis because the media, having come to the story so late, can only process so much. But if you live in Flint or the State of Michigan as I do, you know all to well that what the greater public has been told only scratches the surface.

  1. While the Children in Flint Were Given Poisoned Water to Drink, General Motors Was Given a Special Hookup to the Clean Water. sharingA few months after Governor Snyder removed Flint from the clean fresh water we had been drinking for decades, the brass from General Motors went to him and complained that the Flint River water was causing their car parts to corrode when being washed on the assembly line. The Governor was appalled to hear that GM property was being damaged, so he jumped through a number of hoops and quietly spent $440,000 to hook GM back up to the Lake Huron water, while keeping the rest of Flint on the Flint River water. Which means that while the children in Flint were drinking lead-filled water, there was one — and only one — address in Flint that got clean water: the GM factory.
  2. For Just $100 a Day, This Crisis Could’ve Been Prevented. money hands
    Federal law requires that water systems which are sent through lead pipes must contain an additive that seals the lead into the pipe and prevents it from leaching into the water. Someone at the beginning suggested to the Governor that they add this anti-corrosive element to the water coming out of the Flint River. “How much would that cost?” came the question. “$100 a day for three months,” was the answer. I guess that was too much, so, in order to save $9,000, the state government said f*** it — and as a result the State may now end up having to pay upwards of $1.5 billion to fix the mess.
  3. There’s More Than the Lead in Flint’s Water.Sugar is Deadly
    In addition to exposing every child in the city of Flint to lead poisoning on a daily basis, there appears to be a number of other diseases we may be hearing about in the months ahead. The number of cases in Flint of Legionnaires Disease has increased tenfold since the switch to the river water. Eighty-seven people have come down with it, and at least ten have died. In the five years before the river water, not a single person in Flint had died of Legionnaires Disease. Doctors are now discovering that another half-dozen toxins are being found in the blood of Flint’s citizens, causing concern that there are other health catastrophes which may soon come to light.
  4. People’s Homes in Flint Are Now Worth Nothing Because They Cant Be Sold.
    House slanted w moneyWould you buy a house in Flint right now? Who would? So every homeowner in Flint is stuck with a house that’s now worth nothing. That’s a total home value of $2.4 billion down the economic drain. People in Flint, one of the poorest cities in the U.S., don’t have much to their name, and for many their only asset is their home. So, in addition to being poisoned, they have now a net worth of zero. (And as for employment, who is going to move jobs or start a company in Flint under these conditions? No one.) Has Flint’s future just been flushed down that river?
  5. While They Were Being Poisoned, They Were Also Being Bombed.
    washington warHere’s a story which has received little or no coverage outside of Flint. During these two years of water contamination, residents in Flint have had to contend with a decision made by the Pentagon to use Flint for target practice. Literally. Actual unannounced military exercises – complete with live ammo and explosives – were conducted last year inside the city of Flint. The army decided to practice urban warfare on Flint, making use of the thousands of abandoned homes which they could drop bombs on. Streets with dilapidated homes had rocket-propelled grenades fired upon them. For weeks, an undisclosed number of army troops pretended Flint was Baghdad or Damascus and basically had at it. It sounded as if the city was under attack from an invading army or from terrorists. People were shocked this could be going on in their neighborhoods. Wait – did I say “people?” I meant, Flint people. As with the Governor, it was OK to abuse a community that held no political power or money to fight back. BOOM!
  6. The Wife of the Governor’s Chief of Staff Is a Spokeswoman for Nestle, Michigan’s Largest Owner of Private Water Reserves.
    corruptionAs Deep Throat told Woodward and Bernstein: “Follow the money.” Snyder’s chief of staff throughout the two years of Flint’s poisoning, Dennis Muchmore, was intimately involved in all the decisions regarding Flint. His wife is Deb Muchmore, who just happens to be the spokesperson in Michigan for the Nestle Company – the largest owner of private water sources in the State of Michigan. Nestle has been repeatedly sued in northern Michigan for the 200 gallons of fresh water per minute it sucks from out of the ground and bottles for sale as their Ice Mountain brand of bottled spring water. The Muchmores have a personal interest in seeing to it that Nestles grabs as much of Michigan’s clean water was possible – especially when cities like Flint in the future are going to need that Ice Mountain.
  7. In Michigan, from Flint water, to Crime and Murder, to GM Ignition Switches, It’s a Culture of Death.
    crime sceneIt’s not just the water that was recklessly used to put people’s lives in jeopardy. There are many things that happen in Flint that would give one the impression that there is a low value placed on human life. Flint has one of the worst murder and crime rates in the country. Just for context, if New York City had the same murder rate as Flint, Michigan, the number of people murdered last year in New York would have been almost 4,000 people – instead of the actual 340 who were killed in NYC in 2015. But it’s not just street crime that makes one wonder about what is going on in Michigan. Last year, it was revealed that, once again, one of Detroit’s automakers had put profit ahead of people’s lives. General Motors learned that it had installed faulty ignition switches in many of its cars. Instead of simply fixing the problem, mid-management staff covered it up from the public. The auto industry has a history of weighing the costs of whether it’s cheaper to spend the money to fix the defect in millions of cars or to simply pay off a bunch of lawsuits filed by the victims surviving family members. Does a cynical, arrogant culture like this make it easy for a former corporate CEO, now Governor, turn a blind eye to the lead that is discovered in a municipality’s drinking water?
  8. Don’t Call It “Detroit Water” — It’s the Largest Source of Fresh Drinking Water in the World. glass half fullThe media keeps saying Flint was using “Detroit’s water.” It is only filtered and treated at the Detroit Water Plant. The water itself comes from Lake Huron, the third largest body of fresh water in the world. It is a glacial lake formed over 10,000 years ago during the last Ice Age and it is still fed by pure underground springs. Flint is geographically the last place on Earth where one should be drinking poisoned water.
  9. ALL the Children Have Been Exposed, As Have All the Adults, Including Me.
    One Big Happy Family - NOT!That’s just a fact. If you have been in Flint anytime from April 2014 to today, and you’ve drank the water, eaten food cooked with it, washed your clothes in it, taken a shower, brushed your teeth or eaten vegetables from someone’s garden, you’ve been exposed to and ingested its toxins. When the media says “9,000 children under 6 have been exposed,” that means ALL the children have been exposed because the total number of people under the age of 6 in Flint is… 9,000! The media should just say, “all.” When they say “47 children have tested positive”, that’s just those who’ve drank the water in the last week or so. Lead enters the body and does it’s damage to the brain immediately. It doesn’t stay in the blood stream for longer than a few days and you can’t detect it after a month. So when you hear “47 children”, that’s just those with an exposure in the last 48 hours. It’s really everyone.
  10. This Was Done, Like So Many Things These Days, So the Rich Could Get a Big Tax Break. money and corruptionWhen Governor Snyder took office in 2011, one of the first things he did was to get a multi-billion dollar tax break passed by the Republican legislature for the wealthy and for corporations. But with less tax revenues, that meant he had to start cutting costs. So, many things – schools, pensions, welfare, safe drinking water – were slashed. Then he invoked an executive privilege to take over cities (all of them majority black) by firing the mayors and city councils whom the local people had elected, and installing his cronies to act as “dictators” over these cities. Their mission? Cut services to save money so he could give the rich even more breaks. That’s where the idea of switching Flint to river water came from. To save $15 million! It was easy. Suspend democracy. Cut taxes for the rich. Make the poor drink toxic river water. And everybody’s happy.Except those who were poisoned in the process. All 102,000 of them. In the richest country in the world.”

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

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.

Dr. Burzynski – Cancer is Big Business – Needs Our Help

Posted in Cancer, Disease, Health, Knowledge is Power Series on 16.11.15

Stop CancerCuring cancer would be detrimental to the pharmaceutical industry. They know it too and are at it again, trying to do whatever it takes to silence the doctors that are curing cancer, especially Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski. Even if a doctor is curing 10% of his patients, shouldn’t the powers that be support his efforts instead of trying to squash them and put them out of business? If a patient is sent home to die, shouldn’t that person have the right to try anything and everything they deem appropriate for themselves? Cutting, poisoning or burning cancer should not be forced upon us as American citizens. Those three options are not the only answers or treatment available when it comes to a diagnosis of cancer but in America they are our only legal options. There are doctors out there, like Burzynski, that are on the front lines proving that alternatives do exist.

The only thing Dr. Burzynski is guilty of holding is a patent to his cure and big pharma will stop at nothing to get it from him. When they get it, guess what happens next? Here is some interesting information from Dr. Mercola. You decide and then maybe you too will help get the word out. After all, cancer could touch your life too. Better be educated now than to be devastated later on. http://bit.ly/1Ocnydx

And if you can go one more step, we need your help in a big way. We’re asking for volunteers in the Austin Texas area to go to the State Office of Administrative Hearings on the morning of Nov 19th and exercise their right to protest these absurd charges and hearings. It’s 9:00am on Thursday, November 19, 2015, at 300 West 15th Street, Fourth Floor, Austin, Texas. Hearings will continue through November 25, 2015, before recessing until January 19, 2016, when it will reconvene at 9:00am and continue through January 29, 2016, if necessary.

There will be a lot of media attention and we need to show how powerful our voices are and that we will NOT be silenced.

Please arrive at 8:30am and bring signs that read “Dr. Burzynski saves lives” or “Stop persecuting Dr. Burzynski” or whatever else you’re inspired to write.

I personally will not be able to travel and be in Austin but I’m doing my best to tell everyone I can and I’m hoping you will too. Even if you can’t make it in person, please tell everyone you can on Facebook and other social media sites.

Hopefully, if you’re in Austin (or inspired to travel there) you can go and represent the movement in a powerful way. We have alternatives for fighting cancer. Don’t believe me, check these out …..

Cancer is big business and big pharma doesn’t like competition. Dr. Burzynski Update 2015      http://bit.ly/1RZPlih

The powers that be want to bully Dr. Burzynski until he gives up. What a sick society we live in when a few get to terrorize those of us that are trying to make a positive change in the world. And we thought ISIS was a threat to our future. Think again. ISIS pales in comparison to what happens to us daily due to the greed and power mongels that direct the Federal Reserve and Corpratocracy.
