I'm for justice and equity for all peoples everywhere.

16 Health Problems That Improved in Patients Who Switched From GMO to Organic Diets

By Jeffrey M. Smith

A new study reveals the harsh reality of a diet filled with genetically modified foods.

Peer-reviewed article released Tuesday in the International Journal of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and conducted by the Institute for Responsible Technology revealed that the health of all of the participants improved after switching to a non-GMO diet or simply reducing the amount of GMO foods they ate.

The results, from over 3,250 people, mostly in the United States, closely matched reports by physicians around the nation who have seen similar results when their patients change to largely non-GMO and organic diets.

Bentonite Clay: a safe way of removing toxins from your body

We are all struggling to avoid the wide variety of toxins in our modern world that gradually accumulate in our bodies and degrade our natural health. Test results prove very high concentrations of metal nano-particles are in the air, water and soil. Many sinus and respiratory issues are blamed on other afflictions; when actually, all of this is physical proof that geo-engineering is contaminating your life and health.

You must realize that any particles of metal in your blood stream, affects your mind and its ability to focus, remember and consider. We may not be able to stop this global assault on all life. But you can protect yourself and loved ones by removing these metals from your bodies.

“STUNNING” study reveals: Making THIS simple dietary change improves gut microbiome, helps prevent inflammatory diseases

(NaturalHealth365)  Research confirms what natural health experts have insisted for years:  that the gut microbiome – the community of bacteria in the intestinal tract – plays a vital role in health.  Researchers say imbalances in this microbial community – alternatively known as dysbiosis – can trigger a laundry list of unwanted health conditions, including increased risk of obesity, autism, “leaky gut,” and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.

Now, a new Stanford School of Medicine study suggests that one simple dietary “tweak” – enriching the diet with fermented foods such as yogurt, fresh sauerkraut, and kimchi – can improve the health and diversity of the microbes (or microbiota) while reducing levels of inflammatory enzymes in the body.  So let’s look at how fermented foods contribute to better health and disease prevention.

The Idiot Box: How TV Hypnotizes You (James Corbett)

In preparation for James Corbett’s upcoming course on The History of the Media, The Corbett Report Subscriber is presenting a three-part series on the past, present and future of mass media. Last week we examined How the First Media Moguls Shaped History. This week we examine the history of psychological research into mass media’s effects on the public mind and explore the particular properties of the television set that render its audience susceptible to its lies.

You can tell a lot about an item by the nicknames we give it. So what do our nicknames for the television tell us about that device?

“The idiot box.”

“The boob tube.”

“The tell-lie-vision.”

NATO has taken aim at a new target: your brain. Their ‘Cognitive Warfare’ report describes a hybrid of biotech/nanotech, social engineering, information warfare & psychological operations, and total surveillance, with a stated goal of “harming brains” of even civilians, to impair cognition and disable critical thinking. We are approaching not just the end of free speech, but of free thought, by associating any questioning of the official narrative with “extremism” and “terrorism.” Christian breaks it down in this Ice Age Farmer broadcast.

Detox Methods

Awakened-UK

From https://www.organic-aromatherapy.co.uk/post/positive-news

  1. N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC);
  2. Systemic enzyme blends (e.g. “Neprinol”), which support the healthy function of the liver and kidneys as they naturally clear and detoxify all systems of the body in eliminating unhealthy parasites, heavy metals, etc;
  3. Activated charcoal;
  4. Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.);
  5. Zeolite;
  6. Bentonite clay;
  7. Natural spike-protein repelling substances, e.g. fennel seeds, pine needle tea, star anise, vodka, tequila;
  8. Essential oils (e.g. Oregano, Star Anise, Melissa, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Fir, Spruce, Salvia);
  9. Ivermectin;
  10. Vitamin D3, Vitamin C and Zinc;
  11. Dandelions (e.g. roots, leaves and flowers); teas, infusions, tinctures, salads, etc;
  12. Garlic;
  13. Hydroxychloroquine (*see recipe below);
  14. Ayahuasca, Psilocybin mushrooms and Peyote.

The amount of time taken to clear/remove depends upon the original state of the body prior to the ingestion of these substances, either via experimental injection (Covid “vaccine”), air (chemtrails, geo-engineering, spraying, etc) or food (pesticides, fertilisers and impure water).

This teenager spends her free time building custom wheelchairs for animals with mobility issues 

Something beautiful in our dark dark world right now …

"OUR WORLD"

mypositiveoutlooks.com

 


A high schooler from Minnesota is on a mission of providing mobility to animals with mobility challenges.

During her free time, Shaine Kilyun is building wheelchairs for animals in need. With no one to teach her, the 16-year-old relies on YouTube tutorials to perfect her technique. Her process and finished products become more refined as she makes more of these devices.

Each wheelchair is customized based on the animals’ specific needs. So far, Shaine has created customized mobility devices for dogs, cats, and, soon, a duck.

As she is self-taught, Shaine works on a trial-and-error basis. She has made wheelchairs for animals of all shapes and sizes—from a tiny Chihuahua to a huge Great Dane. She has also come up with a unique locomotion aid for a hedgehog!

As young as she is, Shaine is already doing fantastic work for these animals. The impact of her mission…

From NO to 1080 use in NZ FB page

1080 poison (Sodium Monofluoroacetate) is a hazardous chemical that is repeatedly dumped in New Zealand’s landfill sites (official and unofficial) without consideration for the potential harm. Contrary to some claims, 1080 does not easily breakdown into ‘harmless by-products’: one teaspoon of the poison can kill and harm as many as a hundred adults. It is highly lethal, stable in water, disperses readily through the environment, and in some conditions remains poisonous for months, if not years. For instance, in March 2000, 20 tonnes of mixed, unwanted 1080 poison baits, between 8-20 years old, were buried in West Coast farmland. When tested a few months later…

Gardening, for many people, is a uniquely fulfilling leisure pursuit. There are few better ways of quieting anxieties, stilling emotions and regaining a truer perspective on life. The whole point of maintaining a garden is to provide relaxation, or even food for the spirit with your own nurturing hands. However small your plot is, use it to grow aromatic herbs or flowers, attract butterflies, or maybe even vegetables and fruits – if you are really ambitious.

Maine hospital fired so many unvaccinated employees they had to close the ICU

The Blogging Hounds

The administrators of Central Maine Healthcare in Lewiston, Maine, enacted a vax policy demanding all employees to take the vaccine. But more than 250 employees refused to comply before the deadline. These employees were subsequently fired.

Unfortunately for patients, about 170 of those employees were needed to staff the intensive care unit. Consequently, the hospital had to shut down its ICU because of the firings.

Because it lost so many employees, the hospital plans on cutting intensive care beds by 50% and reducing the number of medical surgical beds by 40%, theBangor Daily Newsreported. (Click Here)

Walmart recalls aromatherapy spray that contained deadly bacteria

"OUR WORLD"

wtop.com

Walmart is recalling an aromatherapy room spray that contained a dangerous bacteria, which can cause a fatal health condition, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.

The retailer is recalling 3,900 bottles of the Better Homes and Gardens-branded essential oil infused aromatherapy room spray with gemstones. The spray bottles could contain Burkholderia pseudomallei bacteria, which can cause a condition called Melioidosis.

According to the CPSC, Melioidosis can be difficult to diagnose and can be fatal. Melioidosis is a rare but serious disease in the United States, with about 12 cases reported annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC conducted tests on the product and investigated four confirmed cases of Melioidosis, including two fatal cases, in the United States. Though the source of these four infections has not been confirmed by CDC, the CPSC said the bottle with the same type of bacteria was…

‘This Is Politics, Not Science’: White House, CDC Prepare to Vaccinate 5- to 11-Year-Olds Prior to FDA Authorization, by Megan Redshaw

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

Let’s give kids vaccines they don’t need and subject them to far greater risks than those posed by disease they’re being vaccinated against. From Megan Redshaw at childrenshealthdefense.com:

The White House today unveiled plans to vaccinate 28 million 5- to 11-year olds for COVID, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already issued guidance for the vaccines for that age group, even though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has yet to approve Pfizer’s vaccine for young children.

The White House today unveiled plans to roll out COVID vaccines for children ages 5 to 11, even though vaccine safety experts — who advise U.S. drug regulators and review safety and efficacy data — have not met to discuss whether Pfizer’s COVID vaccine should be authorized for use in the pediatric age group.

The Biden administration said it will secure enough vaccine doses to vaccinate the 28 million children…

How to Start Vegetable Seeds Indoors: Growing Vegetables from Seed

Hobby Farm Basics

Starting seeds outdoors

Starting your vegetable seeds early indoors in your hobby farm can help you get a big jump on your growing season with quicker yields from your crop. Starting seeds in the ground when spring comes can take longer to see results and also lost crops due to poor seed germination from lack of water or over watering from rain.

When seeds start to germinate this is the time when the plants are most vulnerable to temperature changes and Improper watering. Controlling these growing conditions outside can be very difficult and time consuming.

Starting your vegetable seeds inside will allow you to control the growing conditions for better seed germination at the same time allowing you to bring large health seedling to your vegetable gardening allowing you to get a months head start on your growing season.

What vegetable seeds that cannot be started indoors

  • Carrot
  • Corn
  • Potatoes

Vegetables To Grow For Year-Round Harvest

It is possible to grow vegetables year-round, depending on what you want to grow and where you are located. This is one of the common questions that gets asked today for gardening and growing food at home is if you can grow vegetables year round? The answer is yes because vegetables can be grown indoors all year. This makes things a lot easier.

With the right conditions there are a variety of vegetables that can be grown indoors. Using a greenhouse to grow vegetables is a great way to grow vegetables all year round. There are also growing techniques that enable people to grow inside and with limited space too like hydroponics, aquaponics, and vertical farming methods, among other techniques.

You can try to extend the growing season by giving crops some protection from the weather, using covers and other techniques. Underground greenhouses have also been popular in the past…

Kiwis everywhere are growing their own food again

Rangitikei Environmental Health Watch

Up until the 1950s folks grew their own food as a matter of course. It was what you did. Supermarkets kind of changed that but folks are catching on to the fact that processed foods are frequently devoid of nutrients and our fresh produce is sprayed liberally with toxic chemicals bringing with them a myriad of health risks. The financial squeeze is also a motivating factor and people are getting their fingers in the soil and producing their own food for cheap.

Here are some examples of that in the North Island, one is in the far North, and another in Hawkes Bay, both beautiful warm regions for growing things. A third I noticed recently on Facebook in Palmerston North, closer to home, illustrating the wonderful value of communities getting together and growing food… and sharing. That’s how our forbears used to do it.

Manufacturing Unemployment: Net-Zero Target Will Destroy 650,000 Australian Jobs

Iowa Climate Science Education

Net-zero carbon dioxide targets are all about giving more subsidies to unreliable wind and solar which inevitably drive power prices through the roof.

Increase power prices, as with any input cost, and profits inevitably diminish. Meaningful employment depends upon healthy and sustainable profits. So, as any student of that dismal science will readily tell you, any policy that drives up power prices will inevitably drive up unemployment rates. So far, so simple.

Not that any of this signifies much with the Federal Liberal/National Coalition government.

Its leader, and PM, Scott Morrison is all set to give corporate crony capitalists what they want ? an opportunity to milk an endless raft of government subsidies that will inevitably flow from his net-zero emissions target.

Things to do in the garden right now (Wally Richards)

GARDENING TASKS

Now that we are halfway through Spring and quickly heading towards the first month of Summer (December) there is a fair bit to do in our gardens so lets run a check list in case some things are missed. It will depend on what you have in your gardens as to whether any or all things concern you.

Roses: generally at this time we have new foliage, buds and some flowering taking place. If there is any sign of black spot or rust, spray the roses and soil underneath with a solution of potassium permanganate mixed at ¼ a teaspoon to a litre of non chlorinated water and spray. (It may stain walls etc temporarily). Repeat weekly till new foliage is clean.

Food for Roses ; ideal is horse manure, blood & bone otherwise sheep manure pellets with the blood & bone. These should be covered with some purchased compost. Add to this a sprinkling of Fruit & Flower Power once a month. If you want good roses avoid soil damaging fertilisers such as rose fertiliser and nitrophoska. Bio Boost is also a good natural slow release one and very well priced.

If you have roses that need recovery from past chemical sprays such as Shield (now banned) the chemicals will have broken down the natural immunity of your roses. You may like to start a recovery spray program which I wrote about originally just on 10 years ago.

On the first of the month mix the following at their label rates per a litre of water, PerKfection Supa for Roses, Magic Botanic Liquid, Mycorrcin & Wallys Neem Tree Oil. Spray late in the day just before sunset. Then on the 15th of the month repeat spray all the above except for PerKfection Supa. Only water with non chlorinated water so you don’t harm the beneficial soil life including the gardeners best friend, earthworms.

In some cases the health improvement of your roses will be quickly noticed; although some may have the additional problem of inherently poor breeding and always be a sickly specimen (even if they have brilliant flowers).

Lawns; I have had a number of inquiries about lawn problems starting with moss in lawns. Dont waste your money on sulphate of iron as it only burns the top of the moss which then it quickly comes back. Instead, jet spray the moss with Wallys Moss & Liverwort Control. It kills the moss completely without damaging the grasses. If there is a spongy feeling when walking on the lawn that indicates a thatch problem. Simply spray the lawn with Thatch Busta to clean up the thatch. (Do the moss killing first, wait about 2 weeks then the Thatch Busta.)

Bare patches in the lawn indicate the root damage caused by grass grubs in the autumn/winter period and these same grubs are now down deep, pupating to emerge shortly as beetles. They are too deep to do anything about them at this time so don’t waste your money on treating. The horse has gone so no need to close the gate.

Another bare patch problem with holes in the lawn indicate that porina caterpillars are at work eating at the base of the grass in the evening (while they are safe from birds) to return to their tunnels before dawn. A simple spray over the lawn with Wallys Neem Tree Oil will stop the damage and cause them to starve to death. In areas where porina are a problem treat the lawn this way every 3 months.

When the grass grub beetles emerge they are going to eat the foliage of several plants so after you have noticed holes in the leaves go out after dark with a torch and have a look. If you have beetles then spray then with a mix of Wallys Super Pyrethrum and Wallys Neem Tree Oil. Repeat nightly.

Also a bright light in a window facing the lawn with a trough two thirds full of water with a film of kerosene floating on the top; placed directly under the window pane, will trap lots of beetles (maybe a few Codlin Moths too) They fly at the bright light hit the pane and fall into the water where the kerosene stops them from escaping.

Feed the beetles to the chickens next morning or flush down the toilet.

Weeds; they certainly grow at this time of the year and as long as you deal to them before they set seed they are not too much of a problem.

In fact weeds are a excellent asset to your garden soils as they have taken up goodness which can be returned to great advantage. You could pull the weeds out, shake the soil off them and lay them back down on the soil. That is good but even better; with a sharp knife slice through the weeds just below soil surface. This leaves the roots in the soil to rot and provide food for the soil life and it does not disrupt the beneficial fungi in the soil. The foliage can be laid on the soil surface where it will be quickly devoured by the soil life and worms. Your soil will build up humus quickly if you spray the dying weeds with Mycorrcin.

Doing these things (sure it takes a bit of time but it is so therapeutic and anti-stressful) will over time make for dream gardens and plants.

Citrus; its a good time to sprinkle Wallys Neem tree Powder underneath the citrus trees from the trunk to the drip line. This will help prevent insect damage. If you have chook manure give a good sprinkling of that otherwise any animal manure or sheep manure pellets along with blood & bone. Cover with compost. Sprinkle Fruit and Flower Power once a month. A spray of Wallys Liquid Copper with Raingard added in the spring and autumn will help with any citrus diseases. If the trees are looking a bit sad add Perkfection Supa to the copper spray.

In cases where wet feet have rotted roots treat the area with Terracin to suppress the pathogens and help save the tree. Three weeks later drench the soil with Mycorrcin.

Note always use non-chlorinated water which is easily achieved with a special carbon bonded filter on your outside tap. (Cost $140)

Pear Slugs; In warmer areas and later in cooler areas the pear slugs will attack pear and plum trees, they eat small holes in the foliage and look like a black slug. Simply spray the tree with Wallys Liquid Copper to control. Remember be nice to your gardens by being natural.

I wonder why over 50 NZ Doctors and medical professionals would put their careers and incomes in jeopardy by making a stand?

You may not have heard of this group they call themselves NZ Doctors  Speaking  out With Science and they have some interesting things to say.
