Freedom of the right to know30 Senators voted against this anti-consumer, anti-states’ rights bill – see who they are

 

When the U.S. Senate voted this week to pass a federal law preempting Vermont’s mandatory GMO labeling law, 30 Senators did the right thing.  Thanks Organic Consumers Association for letting us know and collecting all this information.

Thanks Senators for standing in support of the American public!  We commend you and support you.  Blessings to you all of you!
Coach D, Donna Appel, A Voice For Change and lead health style counselor at New Medicine Foundation

Here is the information as taken from the Organic Consumers Association post dated July 7th, 2016.  Please share this with those you know and love.  We really do need to band together to make a difference and get out from under the corporate takeover so prevalent in politics today.

These 30 Senators voted against this anti-consumer, anti-states’ rights bill that was rammed through the Senate without due democratic process.

Some of these Senators were no doubt under a lot of pressure from industry groups, and from their fellow Senators, including the authors of the bill, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), to go over to the DARK side.

But they stood up to their deep-pocketed opponents. They voted with the people.

Please take a minute to see if your Senators on the list of those who stood up for your right to know yesterday, then “tweet” them a thank you. It’s also good to retweet the Senators’ own tweets about yesterday’s vote.

Do you think we have the right to know what is in our food?

Posted in Environmental, GMOs, Health, Knowledge is Power Series on 29.06.16

Share

GMO FoodDo you think we have the right to know what is in our food?  The U.S. Senate doesn’t seem to think so.

 

 

Here is the latest headline Senate Agriculture Committee Leaders Strike Deal on Agriculture Biotechnology Compromise.  It describes how U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-Kan) along with Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich) released a bipartisan agreement establishing a national disclosure standard for GMO food. Genetically modified organisms are found in many commercial food products. Here is the link to the actual bill http://www.agriculture.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Ag%20biotech%20compromise%20proposal.pdf

Don’t know about you but I want to know what is in the product I am purchasing. In fact, we all need to know. More than 60 other countries have banned GMO food and here we are allowing big profit-driven manufacturing companies to dictate what we should and should not know!  You need to know that if this bill passes, it would result in the complete banning of GMO labelling. 

Currently this bill is being rushed through Congress.  Why is that?  Well, a handful of states hGMO Food Labelave voted to make mandatory labeling of GMO’s in food and this bill would over-rule that. The bill also states that no foods need to be labeled for two years. Plus, any food product that is less than 50% GMO’d could be considered non-GMO. After two years, the USDA would require a company to place a scan label on their goods. It would probably look something like this one….

And food derived from GMO-fed animals would be considered non-GMO. That’s right, no labeling required.

Do you think our elected leaders should fight for our right to know what is in the food that we ingest? I think they should but apparently they don’t. Did you know that Senators Stabinow (MY Senator!) and Roberts crafted a bill that would keep us in the dark?  The Senators jointly said, “This bipartisan agreement is an important path forward that represents a true compromise. Since time is of the essence, we urge our colleagues to move swiftly to support this bill.”

Yes, we need to move swiftly if we want to protect our right to know.  If this stuff is so safe, why all the hoopla to keep us from knowing? I smell a rat. We must work together and tell our Senators and Representatives to vote no on this ludicrous bill. Call your Senators now. Tell them we demand to know what is in our food supply. Here is the main U.S. Capitol number  (202) 224-3121. Don’t delay a minute. Call and ask to speak to your Senators. If you get a recording, leave a message.

Our political system is clearly broken.  This bipartisan agreement is a disaster. We need to protect our families from these mega profit driven giants.  Our politicians need to understand who they work for and they need to start working for us.  It is time to make your voice heard.  Help me be A Voice for Change and protect our freedom and the very foundation that this great country was built on!

Monsanto – The Agricultural Poster Child – Help Us Fight Their Injustices

Monsanto AgriculturalMonsanto The Agricultural Poster Child

Help Us Fight The Injustices

 

 

Monsanto isn’t the biggest or the worst company in the world. But this St. Louis biotech giant has become the agricultural poster child for all that’s wrong with our industrial food and farming system.  With approx 21,000 employees in 66 countries and revenues exceeding 15 billion, they are indeed a big shot in the industry.

As was stated in a recent article that I read, this “monopolizer of seeds is the poster child for an industry that is the source of at least one-third of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.  And is largely responsible for the depletion of soil, water and biodiversity. Not to mention the company’s marginalization — and sometimes terrorization — of millions of small farmers.”

“Since the early 20th century, Monsanto has marketed highly toxic products that have contaminated the environment and permanently sickened or killed thousands of people around the world. In a rare exception, Monsanto was recently ordered to pay $46.5 million to compensate victims of its PCB poisoning. Sometimes the company settles out of court, to avoid having to admit to any “wrongdoing.”  “But for the most part, thanks to the multinational’s powerful influence over U.S. politicians, Monsanto has been able to poison with impunity.”

I am thrilled with what is going to take place. It’s happening in The Hague, Netherlands on October 15th and 16th of this year.  The International City of Peace and Justice panel, a distinguished panel of international judges, will hear testimony from witnesses that will be represented by legitimate lawyers, who have been harmed by Monsanto.

In preparation for the citizens’ tribunal, and during witness testimony, the judges will consider six questions that are relevant. This isn’t just in relation to Monsanto either. It is about all companies involved in shaping the future of agriculture.  Read more about this, hopefully, game changing tribunal. Learn how you can support their efforts.

Want more info about what we are doing to bring about change to  healthcare protocols around the world?  Want to know how NMF and AVFC are changing the face of medicine and helping people around the world to heal and thrive, virtually, from the comfort of their homes?  Connect with the coaches coach, Donna Appel.  CEO of A Voice For Change. She is also the Lead Health Style Counselor for the New Medicine Foundation.  I am available by phone (561-389-6958), email or skype.  I would be thrilled to share my knowledge and expertise with you about healing, health, coaching opportunities, physician training and more.

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

Majority, Minority, Majority Healthcare Food Reflect Take Action

Posted in Alternative Healthcare, Environmental, GMOs, Health, Healthy Alternatives, Knowledge is Power Series, Let Food By Thy Medicine Series, Nutrition, Political America, Take Action! on 02.02.16

Share

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/

Visit New Medicine Foundation about their back to great health programs http://www.newmedicinefoundation.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.

Never Give Up But Always Stick Together
A Winning Combo

1385282_10151665910376160_352375928_nNever give up. We are winning and starting to see the demise of corporate corruption the likes of Monsanto. The public is very powerful when we work together. Watch this – http://naturalsociety.com/victory-senate-to-kill-monsanto-protection-act-amid-outrage/

Continued exposure has had Germany tell the EU that it is banning GMO crops. El Salvador kicked Monsanto and their seeds out of their country. 65 nations are now labeling and 14 have banned GMO’d crops. The dark act (deny American’s the right to know) HR 1599 passed the US House of Representatives. If you look at house members who voted in favor of the dark act you see that those individuals received an average of 3 times as much money from big ag as those that voted against it. Communicate with your senators. Tell them enough is enough. http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Monsanto’s stock has gone down. Monsanto is going to be tried at the international criminal court in 2016 for charges of ecocide and crimes against humanity and nature. This is a class action suit organized by Millions against Monsanto, Organic Consumers Association and many other groups.

Seeds of Death? What you don’t know can hurt you.

IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)…

killer tomato

chemical companies were as out of control as they really are. The reports are coming in and it isn’t pretty. We are killing our food supply. We are killing the right to a healthy future for our children. If we don’t step up to the plate and demand this atrocity stop, we will pay the price later. We must wake up now and get involved. Stop buying anything that contains ingredients that have been genetically modified. Buy organic. If you think organic is too expensive, I guarantee that you will spend much more later on when you are fighting the diseases and illness that you will experience as a result of eating GMO foods.

Pink Slime Making a Come Back in Our Schools

Posted in Alternative Healthcare, Food Addiction, Health, Nutrition on 23.09.13

IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)…

What is your child eating?

… pink slime is making a comeback. It seems to be that time of year again and pink slime is coming back into the news. Last year Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota were the three states that were buying the controversial USDA approved ground beef better known as pink slime for use in their school lunch programs. This year, Politico reports that as of September 3rd, 2013, two million pounds of this yuck has been purchased by seven states. Read their article: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/pink-slime-school-lunches-96502_Page2.html

I’m so disappointed. Why would districts in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia, in addition to the three that were doing it last year, continue to put our children in further health danger by having them eat this disgusting meat-like substance? They say it cuts the cost of ground beef by approximately three percent, but is anyone asking the big questions like: What’s the cost to our children’s health? Are we being penny wise and pound foolish? I think we are.
