BREAD: Just 5 Ingredients


Dr. Pradip Jamnadas talks about bread and the over use of non essential ingredients.

Dr. Pradip Jamnadas

Basic bread should have 5 ingredients. Flour, sugar, salt, water and yeast. Very little sugar equals 1 tablespoon maximum for 2 lbs of bread dough. Add all the butter and animal fat you want.

It’s what you buy that is adding the weight gain. Not what you are eating.

Have you forgotten to read labels. I know I sure did. Something we should be not be relaxed on. Now more than ever you need to read the ingredients list and ask yourself if all those extra ingredients really necessary. Seriously, some ingredients you can’t even pronounce. Why do you want that in your food?

So this is just what you need to listen to. Change your eating habits and see the difference. Feel the change in energy.

Egg products, such as egg whites or egg yolks, supply coating, gloss or finishing to foods within the baking category. Consumers expect a certain appearance on the outside of baked goods, such as color or finish. Food color overall is an indicator of quality, including the color of finished baked products. The proper coating or finish not only aids with appearance but can also help extend shelf life by sealing in moisture.

Slightly beaten liquid egg products can serve as a coating or glaze on baked goods, with different variations of the egg mixture according to the desired appearance and texture of the final product. A baker might select either egg yolk, egg white or whole eggs for varying results.

The white is the primary source of proteins in an egg. When whites alone are used as a coating the proteins coagulate and draw moisture from the product, with eventually evaporates, resulting in a crisp surface. An egg wash can also give the baked product a finished, slightly glossy look. Protein browns when exposed to heat, so the addition of an egg wash helps give baked goods a bronzed sheen, in addition to the gloss.

Slightly beaten yolk or eggs, brushed onto surface of unbaked good helps prevent crust from drying out and lends a glossy look. Added at a certain stage in the baking process, the egg wash can help prevent overbrowning. However in order to seal in moisture, yolks must be used in the egg wash.

An egg wash application is common not just for bread, but also different types of pastries or pies, to promote browning, create a glossy shine or both. A variety of other ingredients added in different proportions to the selected egg product (whole egg, egg white or egg yolk), will supply different levels of browning, shine and even texture to the crust surface

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream, half and half, milk or water
  • 1 large egg yolk or egg white

Beat egg yolk with cream and brush on the surface of the pie with a pastry brush.

IT’S THE HOLIDAY SEASON AND HERE COMES ALL THE STRESS!!!

ARE YOU DREAMING OF DANCING LOLLIPOPS AND WALTZING WITH GINGERBREAD MEN?

I highly doubt you are feeling all warm and dreamy about Christmas at this point. D-Day is tomorrow and you are behind on getting all the goodies under the tree. Baking cookies and treats for your spectacular day to celebrate with family and friends.

It’s time to take a minute to check on yourself… Litterly sit yourself down and take a 5 minute break. If you are feeling tired or even exhausted to the point where you don’t feel well.

Don’t wait to get help if you experience any of these heart attack warning signs. Some heart attacks are sudden and intense. But most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Pay attention to your body and call 911 if you experience:

DONT HESITATE CALL 911

Symptoms vary between men and women

As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain (angina) or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain.

Learn about the warning signs of heart attack in women.

  1. Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
  2. Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  3. Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
  4. Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
  5. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.

Watch video: “Just A Little Heart Attack” – a short film directed by and starring Elizabeth Banks

This is just a few of the warning signs prior to a heart attack.

  • Leg pain night or day
  • Sudden Rise in Blood Pressure
  • Shortness of Breath

Top 10 Myths About Cardiovascular Disease

Influenza Season Has Arrived…


Flu is caused by influenza virus of Class A, B and C. Flu spreads directly or indirectly from airborne droplets produced during sneezing or coughing.

Following are the symptoms of flu:

  • Fever
  • Malaise
  • Headache
  • Runny nose
  • Postnasal drip
  • Sneezing
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Metallic taste in mouth
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Body pain or muscle pain
  • Sore throat

Take Three Actions to Protect Against Flu

  1. Get Vaccinated
  2. Take preventive steps
  3. Get Treatment

Preventive Steps You Can Take NOW

  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. After using a tissue, throw it in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like flu.

Treatments

Most of the time flu goes away without treatment. Taking medication can help relieve symptoms. Bed rest will help in faster recovery. Medication

Self care

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Take complete rest
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Practice good hygiene

170.3 million doses of flu vaccine have been distributed.

Happy Holidays and Stay Healthy!!!

Geo Hazard??? Mysterious holes and fish discovered on Pacific Ocean floor inside micro depressions.


December 9, 2019

Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI)

Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute researchers found thousands of holes covering a potential wind-energy farm site off California’s coast, and they aren’t sure what caused them.

During a recent survey of the deep seafloor off Big Sur, MBARI researchers discovered thousands of mysterious holes or pits in the seafloor. Scientists and resource managers want to understand how these pits formed because this area is the site of a proposed wind-energy farm. Researchers Eve Lundsten and Charles Paull describe their discovery this week at the Fall 2019 meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco.

The researchers found two different sizes of holes. The larger ones, known as pockmarks, average 175 meters (almost 600 feet) across and five meters (16 feet) deep, and are nearly circular and fairly evenly spaced. Some of these pockmarks were initially discovered by MBARI scientists in 1999 during a seafloor survey using ship-mounted sonar. Over the last few years, additional surveys by MBARI and other organizations revealed over 5,200 pockmarks spread out over 1,300 square kilometers (500 square miles), making this area the largest known pockmark field in North America.

More recently, MBARI conducted detailed seafloor surveys using sonar mounted on autonomous underwater vehicles. These surveys revealed thousands of smaller pits, which they termed micro-depressions. The micro-depressions average just 11 meters (36 feet) across and one meter (three feet) deep. They have steeper sides than the pockmarks and are often elongated in one direction.

Map showing the locations of some of the pockmarks and proposed wind-farm areas off Central California. Image: © 2019 MBARI

Seafloor pockmarks have been found elsewhere around the world, and have been associated with releases of methane gas or other fluids from the seafloor. Such methane releases could potentially cause the seafloor to be unstable, which could pose risks for structures such as offshore oil platforms or wind turbines.  However MBARI researchers found no evidence of methane in the sediment or seawater in this region. In fact, sonar data showing layers of seafloor sediments suggest that these pockmarks have been inactive for the last 50,000 years.

Don’t forget… VIDEO BELOW

In contrast to the pockmarks, the micro-depressions formed in relatively young sediment. In addition, almost all of the micro-depressions contain objects such as rocks, kelp holdfasts, bones, trash, or fishing gear. Many micro-depressions also have “tails” of sediment that probably originated within the depression. In many areas, these tails are all oriented in the same direction.

Based on these observations, the researchers hypothesize that the micro-depressions are relatively recent features that were were excavated by local seafloor currents. Because the sediment on the seafloor in this area is so soft and “fluffy,” the researchers speculate that even the movements of fish hiding out in the micro-depressions could stir up the sediment, allowing it to be carried away by currents.

Summarizing this work, Lundsten said, “The pockmarks and micro-depressions in this area are both holes in the seafloor that occur in softer sediments, but they are morphologically distinct. The cause and persistence of the pockmarks still remains a mystery, but we find no evidence they were created from gas or fluid in the seafloor in the recent past. The micro-depressions are recently formed erosional features; they are not ‘incipient pockmarks.’ Overall, a lot more work needs to be done to understand how all these features were formed, and this work is in progress.”

Protecting your Skin … Cleansing your pores…Fire… Smoke and Ash Fallout. What to Do.


BY: ORGNAT LIFE

MOST IMPORTANTLY: KEEP YOUR FACE, HANDS and EYES COVERED.

Always wash your hands and change clothes as soon as you get home.

Try and keep the contamination to one area.

If you are one of the few that come home to one of the burnt out neighborhoods make sure you exercise caution while out in the elements.

That means anytime you are outside make sure you follow these simple emergency instructions to cleansing your body.

  • You do not want to inhale any of the elements that is on fire or has been burnt out.
  • Respiratory infections and many other illness can be blamed on large burn out fires as these.
  • Think about how many toxic products that are in our homes. Make sure if moving one of these items you are prepared with emergency protection gear.
  • Refrigerator, microwaves, cars, carpet, wood flooring that has been treated and those are just a few things that every home may have.

Your home and residing in the neighborhood: Set up an area that you can seal off. If you have a separate hall way that you can close off with plastic or a separate entry, perhaps through the side garage door(not a big one)with door to house. Handy to change contaminated clothes.

Even though your area may not have flames crawling up your street or that you can actually see, remember embers and ash can float through the air. It will glide until it gets caught on a branch or something to cling onto.

Make sure you bath each night before you go to bed.

Open your pores with warm water and use a good scrubby or washcloth with loads of soap. Soap up really good. Use cold water after to wash the soap off and close your pores.

Keep all of your smoke clothes in a plastic bag in your sealed area until you wash them. You don’t want to spread the smell or contaminate any other area.

If you are in close vicinity of the devastated areas: Do Not run any fans or air conditioning that has a connetion to outdoors. Close all doors, windows and vents. Close blinds and curtains to keep sun out and temperatures down in the house.

Anxiety, Linked To Grocery Shopping And Meal Time


Time consumption of grocery shopping… I am actually having anixety because I have to dedicate a few more hours to my grocery shopping now. Taking my mobile phone in so I can check the ingredients on the labels.
Where have the days gone when you could going shopping for an hour or so. Putting our trust in the manufactors of our food products is really become a risky business.
Reading labels these days has become a spelling bee, because of the additives. Processed foods have so many additives. In my view food has become unhealthy and toxic.

So many questions I have to ask myself and to remember them all is taxing my brain.
It use to be so simple. What is the experation date?

Not only additives but dangerous listeria and E.coli. We need to ask what country is this being processed, made or grown in? Has this item or is it on a recall list? https://www.recalls.gov/

Checking everything is a BIG time consumming task.

Check your labels and look up all the ingredients you don’t know. If you are going to buy any boxed, processed, frozen or fresh meat . I try not to buy pre-packaged foods but sometimes you don’t have a choice. I know you say “no time”. I have found a few ways to curb cooking time.

I bought a bread maker and I now make my own bread. I eat good bread all the time. Unbleached Flour, Salt, Sugar, Butter, Water and only 2 teaspoons of yeast per 2 pounds of dough that I cook in my oven. You can let the bread maker make 1 LB loaves of bread quickly while you do something else. It just turns out a little heavier than I like sometimes. I use those loaves for yummy french toast. But my yeast is cut by 2\3 and so is the sugar compared to store bought bread. Best of all no preservatives.

Don’t get me wrong. I still buy dry pasta and rice. I have no time to make fresh pasta. I occaionally have bought the fresh made pasta at the store. But that comes with preservestives also. Soon I hope to try and make my own. It’s very simple and you can make the dough in a bread maker or food processor. Fresh pasta is a simple homemade treat with a pasta press machine. Endless pasta recipes. So come back for yummy pasta recipes in a few months. Till then check out these Italian Grandmas for recipes. https://youtu.be/wKOgzfgI48c

Let your machines do the work while you enjoy the benefits of a healthy product made by you.

Making meals from “real” food really can be super easy. I bought a Multi Cooker / Pressure cooker and I drop in frozen meat, veggies and seasonings. You’ll have pleanty of time to take a shower or get the kids into the tub. 30 to 45 minutes later you have a meal.

You can prepare most of your veggies ahead of time. You could make it for a whole week while you watch tv. Just put them in a container and refrigerate or freeze them. Or if you must buy frozen vegtables. READ the ingrediant label. Some have preservatives.

Check out my recipes for the bread maker and plain old simple recipes for a healthier life style. BLOG

JANE THE VIRGIN: OMG One Of The Best Comedy’s To Come Our Way In A Long Time


Jane the Virgin

I have not laughed like this in so long. Great writing portrays a “Pregnant Virgin”. The turmoils and tribulations she must go through is hilarious episode after episode. The narration at the beginning of every episode is just as funny.. It sets the stage for comedy.

So glad I choose to watch this even if the reviews say prefect for teenagers. I am 58 years old and I say anyone who needs a laugh and a little uplifting to watch. This is just wonderfully written with the chemistry between the actors illuminates every characters hilarious story even further.

I watched all 81 episodes and was left wanting more.

GOT RATS??? A Dog’s Lifesaver


This dog was lucky someone was there who knew what the signs where for rat poison.
I would have never guessed.

Hope this never happens to your dog, but if it does here’s what to do for emergency and can’t get to the vet…. Raw eggs… I had never heard of this remedy until now. I have fed my dogs charcoal for the light case from licking the rat. I have never witnessed severe rat poison poisoning in any animal. That poor baby going through those convulsions was heart wrenching.

Get them to the vet as soon as possible.


I Know Who I Am NOT…


By Chad Rhodes

When was the last time you took a long look into that mirror? When was the last time you have done the “Me Check”? And if you did, did you ask yourself what have I been thinking???? Mental Check Up is worth a million my friend… If You assume you are “Un-Breakable”, your not. We sometimes forget that we are all humans.

Stop consuming your life and live it

Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start living

Stop Playing the victim and start living

We all need to keep up with these small things that could change our life rapidly into the dark side . Don’t keep that door closed on the “I can’t” corner. Open up and let it go so you can dump off the excess.

Don’t you wonder why we all think that we can not do something. That small hesitation, that we all have right before we are about to board a “Risk”. Our fears take over, even when we know we can.

Don’t be fooled it happens to everyone. You just need the correct tools to combat the negative fields that seem to pile up at times..

Listen to a great inspirational speech by Matthew McConaughey

We all have that moment when we can change it to reflect the positive. Just remember we can all find ourselves on the positive side when we let go of the excess. You might ask what is excess. That you must ask yourself. What makes you crazy, your fears, the negative influences. You’ll find it when you start to look for it. Then You Can Open That Door and Throw It Away.

Osaka’s Greatest Moment Overshadowed By Serena Williams


Naomi Osaka was not only robbed by Serena Williams for the greatest win of her life, but Osaka was robbed by the crowd.

 

 

On Saturday afternoon, 20-year-old Naomi Osaka, the new U.S. Open champion and first-time grand slam winner, stood on the stage and pushed her visor down to cover her eyes, and cried. These were not tears of joy. Naomi Osaka just had an outstanding game against her idol Serena Williams. Which she won and the crowd was booing loudly. Serena Williams placed her arm around Naomi Osaka in solidarity in hopes of showing sportsmanship to the booing crowd.

 

Osaka earned every bit of her victory. Serena’s blowout with chair umpire Carlos Ramos overshadowed her win. Ramos called a series of violations against Williams, ultimately resulting in a game penalty at a crucial moment in the final of a grand slam. The penalty put Osaka only one game away from the title.

“Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree,” Now being shown on your local television channels.

By: Chad Rhodes August9, 2018

I had a chance Today to review the documentary “Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree” on KGMB Hawaii CBS.  What a life enlightenment to say the least. This is a must see no matter what part of the world you live in.

I am sure the world does not know of the plague that has hit the OHIA Trees on the Big Island of Hawaii. A forest of sticks instead of trees. This is a very dangerous situation for the ecosystem. Birds, bees and other wild life depend on the Ohia Tree.

Hawaii Invasive Species Council:  Rapid  ʻŌhiʻa Death Continues Marching Across Hawai‘i Island

For the past few years now the death of Ohia forest after forest has become a great concern to the locals. As you can see from photos that the Ohia tree is a large part of the forest species on The Big Island of Hawaii.

Hawaii’s DLNR website for Rapid Ohia Death has many articles and pictures. Please read and become familiar with the struggle of saving the Ohia Trees.

 

A new documentary is being released August and September with the islands.

“Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaii’s Sacred Tree,” a new half-hour documentary on Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death, the disease that is killing ʻōhiʻa lehua, Hawaii’s most widespread and important native tree. This documentary has been funded by a grant from the Hawaiʻi Invasive Species Council.

This film features some of the researchers and resource managers grappling with this new disease, and community members describing their emotional and cultural relationships with ʻōhiʻa.

Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority will support three screenings of the video on Hawaiʻi Island, including the premiere at the Palace Theater in Hilo at 6:30 p.m. on August 4.

With DLNR DOFAW assistance, the video will also be broadcast on local network affiliates statewide in August and September.  The video was produced by Club Sullivan, with assistance from the Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death strategic response team.  For more information on Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death, visit www.RapidOhiaDeath.org.

BIG BOY HAWAII STEPPING ON COMMUNITY’S RIGHT TO TAKE PICTURES


BIG BOY HAWAII STEPPING ON COMMUNITY’S RIGHT TO TAKE PICTURES

By Chad Rhodes  June 30, 2018 9:30pm PST

What is our Local Government up to now?

You sometimes wonder if you need to be a bigger spy on our government than they are with us. Riddle me this BatMan.

The days of keeping secrets to keep money rolling into the economy on this rock is over. There is a 1.5 mile WIDE river of HOT MOLTEN LAVA moving at terrifying speeds across the lower East side community of Puna. With no sign it is going to stop any time soon and with little information from the Local Officials leaves the community in limbo.

I shutter as I repeat these words. You could and will be arrested and your photos will be confiscated.. WHAT??? Did you just take away one of my constitutional rights?

First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Eighth Amendment: Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

How can the Big Island officials pass policies that take the rights away from the citizens to take pictures of the lava flow? To take pictures of their own property. Whether it’s still standing or on fire with the lava starting to creep in and eat away at the edge of the siding. Why, if you are safely away and not putting anyone else’s life in danger, and that includes emergency responder’s. there is no harm. If you are sneaking in the backside, going on other peoples property, taking tourists and filming then you should be arrested.

WHAT ARE YOU HIDING??? What are you not telling the people of this community?

As the earthquakes continue, the force of each tremor seems stronger with continuing rumbling that sounds like an empty stomach. When you have over 500 earthquakes a day, with at least a couple that are 5.0 +. Your nerves start to fray. Especially if you have already been displaced by the eruption. From the top of Kilauea to the bottom of Kapoho the Lava river that is winding through the leilani – Kapoho areas.

WARNING: DO NOT LET THEM GET WET!!!!


WARNING: LIGHT UP SHOES FOR KIDS, DO NOT LET THEM GET WET!!!!

WOW amazing that we actually have to worry about battery acid burning our child’s feet. Your child’s shoes going up in flames in the middle of the night.

The reports of injury and mishaps are creating a health issue for the child and a night mare for the parents.

You would never think that something like this would be even be possible, or that it would burn down your house.

A young girls light Up Shoes went up in flames and burnt down the house. The family dog woke them up and everyone got out safe.

One young Boy was lucky and has only suffered 2nd degree chemical burns from his sketcher light up shoes. Apparently when they get wet the batteries release a chemical causing children’s feet to burn

Another boys shoes burned the family cars back seat out. Thank God the child was not wearing them at the time. His mother says with him being so young could he actually tell her something was wrong or even worse that he may not be able to take them off by himself.

Payless and Sketchers voluntarily took the shoe off the shelves. But beware they are being resold through used outlet stores or on Ebay.

 

Find Out What’s inside the light up shoe (LED) that makes them so dangerous. Here’s what’s inside the shoes…

 

June 5 2018 Wai Opae, Hawaii “A Hui Hou (Vacationland)Kapoho, Hawaii No views


OOH My heart is breaking.. Along with all the others in this community.

This video is very short cause I could only find so many pictures @ midnight last night. I was up until 4:30am this morning. Just starting to make videos.. After the movie was finished and I “proof” watched it. My heart broke just a little bit more and many tears filled my eyes. That was the first water my toes ever touched and as of today it has been the last. “A Hui Hou” to a great beauty of Hawaii.

Clean Water??? PUNA


WHO”S MINDING THE WATER QUALITY

DURING THIS CRISIS???

By Chad Rhodes 6/3/2018 3:30 pm

I am no longer getting my drinking water from Pahoa side. Now going Keaau side. If the methane gas is present who’s to say it has not already penetrated the water table in Pahoa. Where is that water table in Pahoa. Feast your pretty eyes on this. This is why I have brought up these issues. I have not heard any one mention the water source for the Puna District.

Kilauea Aquifer Sector Area Hawaii County

KILAUEA AQUIFER SECTOR AREA

SECTOR AREA PROFILE

General

The Kilauea Aquifer Sector Area (ASEA) includes the Pahoa [80801], Kalapana [80802], Hilina[80803], and Keaiwa [80804] Aquifer System Areas (ASYA).  It captures most of the Puna District and the southeastern portion of the Kau District, and extends along most of the island’s southeastern coastline as far south as Kuhua Bay outside Punaluu. The sector area includes most of the Kilauea Crater and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Economy and Population

Economy

Agriculture is the primary economic function in the Puna District.  Vegetables / Papayas in the Kapoho area, flowers in the Pahoa and Kapoho areas, and bananas are the principal products.  Truck farming in the Volcano area is also significant.  The majority of the State’s papayas and bananas are grown in Puna. Several Marijuana growers due to the sunny, hot, humid days.

The Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) plant located outside of Kapoho generates 30-MW of electricity using three geothermal wells.  Plans were already under way to expand the facility to double its output, but Pele put a stop to that we hope..  PGV had employed 30 people.

Population

Nearly all of the population contributing to the demands from the Kilauea ASEA is within the Puna District.  The rate of growth of Puna’s population has slowed in the past few years., but still ranks as the island’s highest.  The growth can be attributed to the affordability of residences outside of Hilo and the job opportunities in Hilo.  Puna’s status as a “bedroom community” for Hilo is evident from much slower growth in employment, and the worsening traffic on its roads leading into Hilo.

Ok, you have a little better understanding why I have concern. Lager Population, PGV Leaking into Aquifer, Fertilizers used by farmers, cars and other contaminants. Now look at the map and tell me that the Aquifer could not be at risk.

Are Your Smart Appliances Spying On You?


You can be assured they are.

Every Smart Appliance was made just for that purpose. You thought it was the greatest thing to come into your life.
Telling Alexa to order you a pizza, to take a message or look up your favorite movie.

Robot vacuums floor and remembers your floor plan. Can it be hacked? Yes any electronic item with a computer can be hacked.
You can have your Smart House System turn on your AC or Heat on before you get home, so it’s all comfy for you!!! It can also scan your house for human life if connected to a security camera system.
Your smart car… OOOHHHH the smart car… Yes it will stop before you can, it can park and it can also fly you off the cliff. Any one with a computer and hacking knowledge can hack your cars computer and have “Total control” of your automobile. Something they just don’t want you to know.

I know your shaking your head saying “WHAT” .. Who and How come…

You had no idea of this factor prior to this article.

Now you do.

Google can’t spy on you!!

BIG ISLAND NEEDS HELP WITH THE ANIMALS… PLEASE HELP…


LINKS FOR FUND RAISERS

EMERGENCY DONATIONS NEEDED FOR HAWAII

The Community and the Shelters are overwhelmed and need your help today.

 

Hawaii Lava Flow Animal Rescue

The Hawaiʻi Lava Flow Animal Rescue Network (HLFARN) was created to serve as an informational hub for those needing assistance with pets and animals on farms during the 2018 eruption of Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. But it has become so much more than that. HLFARN has blossomed from a group of strangers into an Ohana; a family of people whose love for animals has taken them into the path of an erupting volcano to rescue pets and farm animals that have been left behind.

We are a grassroots movement to help the residents displaced from Leilani Estates and lower Puna to evacuate their beloved companions and friends. As a group of volunteers, we have rescued over 200 animals thus far. We continue to help residents, their furry friends, and stray animals every day; rain or shine.

The continuing eruption has destroyed homes and threatened lives, including the lives of dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs, birds, fish, chickens, goats, sheep, cows, and horses. A plethora of animals have been abandoned or relocated to foster care while their owners figure out where they are going to live. Foster families have taken on the burden of caring for these animals without a second thought as to who will feed and care for them.

We are asking for donations to help our field volunteers acquire safety gear, respirators, and to help alleviate the cost of transportation. Your donation will help to rescue, provide food, carriers, crates, and medical attention to many pets and farm animals. We would also like to help those who are relocating with crates for airline travel. Your donation will support the long and tedious process of caring for rescued animals, as well as some support to evacuated families who are dealing with one of the most difficult times of their lives. Without your help, and the help of our volunteers, these animals would have likely perished. Your donation will save lives and help keep families together.

Mahalo for taking the time to read and share our mission in saving as many animals as we can.

SAMPLING… BIG ISLAND HAWAII Air Quality Is Questionable. How much are they really NOT telling us.


SAMPLING… Air Quality Is Questionable.

How much are they really NOT telling us.

This is what I was greeted with this morning.

The STRANGEST SMELL came over Hawaiian Paradise Park and Orchidland at 9:30 am this morning as these wispy strange looking clouds came over. I called my friend Lisa ask her if she smells a strange odor. Yes i smell that also.Then about 10:00 am military plane shows up going through all these clouds back and forth. I call my friend Lisa to tell her to look she is up mountain from me. she says yes i see. My face and lips were stinging when I came back in. The plane kept coming again and again. Don’t know what it was, but it made me cough and my skin is itchy too.

They keep down Playing the PGV (Puna Geothermal Venture Plant) facts. Those facts could kill the whole community in Puna district and then some. They really have no idea. It depends on a lot of factors: wind speed, cloud formation, height and weight, time of day, Day Or Night . So many factors and a lot of people are acting like “it’s all good, I got this”… “Do you really got this”.?

YOU COULD SAY THIS IS A REAL CLIFF HANGER…


What is happening to our Earth, Our Home…?

Tragic events keep afflicting our planet, our home.

 

Are these the new weather arrangements for the future.

Is this this final`e for our planet?

The last whooorahhhh?

Our rapid destruction, our tragic end.

We sometimes think the change is rapid when it is time that has worn out the soles of our planet. The abuse that humans have inflicted upon this great earth we call home. A Great Chapter I see as closing before our very eyes.

Beautiful Blue Skies today, Nothing like Yesterday


WOW What a Day, Night.

I have experienced Kilauea now for the 4th episode.

I must say this has been the most exhilarating and at times down right scary.

Not Knowing what to expect next. I don’t even think any of the scientists even knew what to expect.

I am 15 miles away from the Leilani Eruption and still it is very loud.

Night after night sounded like you were in a war zone.

Explosion after explosion.

Gassey, Howly, Growling and creaking from the ground.It still continues today May 18, 2018.

The sounds are hard to describe. If you have been to Disneyland in California and have been on the Pirates of the Caribbean and the sounds are like that. That is the best I know how to describe it. It’s all night and all day, with no end to the ride. It’s the night time sounds that get to you…. Here listen to this for awhile… Excellent video in the trenches by Ikaika Marzo https://www.facebook.com/ikaika.marzo

Then Kilauea Exploded  @4:15 am May 17, 2018. Ash and Smoke filled the skies.  I have seen the Vog in its intense stage. This was so much more dense, dark and the Scariest massive ash cloud I had ever seen. I have never seen anything in person like this.

I scrambled to close the windows and get the fans on for the dogs. It was very warm out. It had been nice and cool during the nights prior to all this activity. Actually we had just had a few intense rain showers. Some of the other islands flooded from the rain storm that had come over the islands. We all thank god for the moisture we had received prior.

We have a local Superman Ikaika Marzo. He has been there giving the real story since the day it broke out. Live action in the trenches reporter. He should be paid. When the CD is giving messages fissures have stopped proof comes that they are still flowing. It has been his reporting that kept the locals informed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUCt1UcaCuc

So now today is blue skies in Keaau. Leilani as of this morning had 22 live fissures with a river of pahoehoe. Pahoehoe is a very fast moving liquid lava. Unlike the slow moving lava that Leilani Estates eruption had been up until Yesterday May 17, 2018.

“PUNA STRONG”. The community had the community’s back as soon as this happened. Locals mobilized and set up. God Bless This Community of Strong People. Thank You to All of the Volunteers who help this community… You are AWESOME…

Everyone Affected By Kilauea Volcano Eruption Should Be Doing This Every Night…


It’s an amazing gift the body has given to us to use.

You can DETOX YOUR BODY EVERY NIGHT NATURALLY.

BEST OF ALL “IT’S FREE

We all have a personal “Dump System” in our bodies.

Right now we need all the help we can get to dump some of these toxins from our for awhile from our locally grown food . We can’t stop eating, So we need to learn how to survive with a healthy body when it is all said and done.

If we all would just take 10 minutes a day or fall asleep on your left side every night.

Natural Detoxing is the safest and easiest way to clean your vital organs from toxins.


Amazing Benefits of Sleeping on Your Left Side

Here are some reasons for Sleeping on your left side:

  • Facilitates lymphatic drainage from your brain
  • Makes it easier for the heart to pump downhill
  • Better elimination
  • Supports healthy spleen function
  • Encourages proper digestion
  • Helps circulation back to the heart
  • Helps bile flow more freely

about ½ inch long. drains lymph from upper right side of body. Thoracic (left) duct. main collecting duct of lymph system cm long. drains 75% of body. begins as a dilation known as cisterna chyli located anterior to lumbar disk #2.

The Lymph Drains toward the Left

The left side of the body is the dominant lymphatic side. Seventy-five percent of the body’s lymph fluid drains into the thoracic duct, which drains into the left side of the heart, left internal jugular vein, and left subclavian vein. Lymph fluid carrying proteins, glucose, other metabolites, and waste products is cleansed and then drained into the left side of the heart.

The small intestine dumps waste through the ileocecal valve (ICV) on the right side of the body into the beginning of the large intestine. The large intestine travels up the right side of the belly across the tummy, where it dumps waste into the descending colon on the left side.

Sleeping on the left side allows gravity to encourage the food waste to move more easily from the small intestine into the large intestine through the ICV.

During sleep on your left side, the waste moves more easily into the descending colon. With the help of gravity and a good night’s sleep on the left side, the descending colon is full of waste and ready to easily and completely eliminate in the morning.

One of the biggest players on the left side is the heart. If you sleep on your left side, the lymph drainage toward the heart will, again, be helped by gravity, taking some of the workload off of the heart as you sleep.

The aorta, the biggest artery in the body, leaves the top of the heart and arches to the left before it heads down into the abdomen. By sleeping on the left side, the heart is pumping its biggest payload downhill into the descending aorta.

Sleeping on the left also allows much of the intestines to hang away from the very thin-walled inferior vena cava (IVC), which brings venous blood back toward the heart. Interestingly, the IVC lies against the right side of the spine, so when you lie on the left, much of the viscera falls away from the IVC. Here again, gravity is just making the heart’s job a little easier.

The spleen, which is part of the lymphatic system, is also on the left. The spleen is much like a gigantic lymph node, except that in addition to filtering lymph, it also filters blood. When you lay on the left side, drainage back to the spleen is once again helped and made easier by gravity.

FACT; the lymph system drains all the cells in the body via movement and muscular contractions, rather than being pumped by the heart. Helping the lymph to drain to the spleen and heart with gravity is a good thing!

Very good for pregnant women

Returning home is a scary feeling when you don’t know what to expect.


Lava Insurance too expensive for most islanders…


Specialty insurance, added extras… These days those are typical words homeowners are hearing from the insurance companies. Time to have a “CHECK UP” on your homeowners insurance policy. Make sure you are covered for what you “THINK” you are covered for. Better to find out before something happens.

35 Homes Destroyed and 2 new Fissures open in LEILANI ESTATES… Disaster Grows!!!


Disaster looms for many residents of a subdivision in Hawaii. It seems every hour you hear the lava has consumed another house in Leilani Estates on the Big Island of Hawaii. Residents are growing restless not knowing if their house has joined the list of  the others that have been destroyed by Pele. Locals say she is reclaiming the land.

RISING FROM THE VOG… Leilani Estates Eruption 2018 Residents return to get their pets


A line of traffic is seen going towards Pahoa town, Sunday, May 6, 2018, near Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists reported lava spewing more than 200 feet (61 meters) into the air in Hawaii’s recent Kilauea volcanic eruption, and some of the more than 1,700 people who evacuated prepared for the possibility they may not return for quite some time. (AP Photo/Marco Garcia)

May 6, 2018 7 am cars lined the street hoping for a chance to retrieve their animals and belongings. “Lookie Loos” lined up also at the gateway entrance to the homes that have been evacuated since May 3, 2018.

As the morning progressed into lunch time, so did the lines. Growing ever longer down both sides of the highway. Residents patiently waiting their turn to go to their homes. The County and Police notified everyone in the lines that “RESIDENTS ONLY” would be allowed in. The lines slimmed down a bit, but continued till 6pm when all residents had to leave the area for mandatory curfew.

Hawaii Volcano Eruption Update – Sunday Morning (May 6, 2018)

A few minutes prior to curfew the Civil Defense put out “EMERGENCY BROADCAST” to ALL Leilani Estates residents to “GO NOW”. CDC did not say why, but I am assuming it was the Sulfur Dioxide Levels, possibly to high for human safety.

Leilani Estates eruption area should had been restricted to residents only or escorted by residents ONLY. What took them so long to come to that realization. The residents are still evacuating. Some Residents that were able to get to their homes today, came back to their homes that had been broken into and things were stolen.

The residents have had people approach them and TRESPASS on their property asking if they could look at the lava and take pictures.. Disrespecting the property owners who are mourning the loss of their homes, property and possibly animals… All for a photo opportunity that will make the trespassers money and famous for a second.

FINALLY… OHA Investigated By FBI. Millions missing!!!


FINALLY… OFFICE of HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS CAUGHT WITH THEIR HANDS IN THE COOKIE JAR…

OHA is being investigated by the State of Hawaii and now the FBI. It’s about time. Rumors for years have circulated around the islands about OHA’s spending practices.

Audit was released in February which found frivolous spending by Board Members. Ending in millions being depleted from the fund on personal pleasures. Embezzlement and Fraud by the board members.

OHA declined comment during a board meeting Thursday, and its attorney declined to provide details of the investigation to a beneficiary.

HNN reports; “I think there’s something they’re trying to hide,” said Healani Sonoda-Pale, chair of Ka Lahui Hawaii’s political action committee, who asked the board to disclose details of the investigation. “There needs to be more transparency in this whole agency, because it is for the benefit of kanaka maoli.”

OHA declined to give information, which cracked the cookie jar wide open.

Can we all say SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

Violence in Our Schools.. SAY SOMETHING…


How about if we go after the movies also. The kids today see movies filled with violence. On a slightly more disturbing note are the movies that portray humans killing humans for sport or because that person is not liked socially. Take a look at these movies. Happy Hunting, Surviving the Game and The Purge. Then let’s talk about who is responsible for what…

What Is Domestic Violence?


Did anyone ever figure we would be having this conversation in 2018?

We have moved through generation after generation with the continuance of domestic violence and abuse. When will someone care enough to call when someone hears the cries for HELP? Help them when they can not or will not help themselves. Sometimes it takes a community to stop the violence. SPEAK OUT AND BE THE VOICE. Its an anonymous call to the police.

What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.

Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.

For anonymous, confidential help available 24/7, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY).

It is not always easy to determine in the early stages of a relationship if one person will become abusive. Domestic violence intensifies over time. Abusers may often seem wonderful and perfect initially, but gradually become more aggressive and controlling as the relationship continues.

What Does Abuse Include?

Abuse may begin with behaviors that may easily be dismissed or downplayed such as name-calling, threats, possessiveness, or distrust. Abusers may apologize profusely for their actions or try to convince the person they are abusing that they do these things out of love or care. However, violence and control always intensifies over time with an abuser, despite the apologies. What may start out as something that was first believed to be harmless (e.g., wanting the victim to spend all their time only with them because they love them so much) escalates into extreme control and abuse (e.g., threatening to kill or hurt the victim or others if they speak to family, friends, etc.). Some examples of abusive tendencies include but are not limited to:1

  • Telling the victim that they can never do anything right
  • Showing jealousy of the victim’s family and friends and time spent away
  • Accusing the victim of cheating
  • Keeping or discouraging the victim from seeing friends or family members
  • Embarrassing or shaming the victim with put-downs
  • Controlling every penny spent in the household
  • Taking the victim’s money or refusing to give them money for expenses
  • Looking at or acting in ways that scare the person they are abusing
  • Controlling who the victim sees, where they go, or what they do
  • Dictating how the victim dresses, wears their hair, etc.
  • Stalking the victim or monitoring their victim’s every move (in person or also via the internet and/or other devices such as GPS tracking or the victim’s phone)
  • Preventing the victim from making their own decisions
  • Telling the victim that they are a bad parent or threatening to hurt, kill, or take away their children
  • Threatening to hurt or kill the victim’s friends, loved ones, or pets
  • Intimidating the victim with guns, knives, or other weapons
  • Pressuring the victim to have sex when they don’t want to or to do things sexually they are not comfortable with
  • Forcing sex with others
  • Refusing to use protection when having sex or sabotaging birth control
  • Pressuring or forcing the victim to use drugs or alcohol
  • Preventing the victim from working or attending school, harassing the victim at either, keeping their victim up all night so they perform badly at their job or in school
  • Destroying the victim’s property

Is Domestic Violence Always Physical Abuse?

It is important to note that domestic violence does not always manifest as physical abuse. Emotional and psychological abuse can often be just as extreme as physical violence. Lack of physical violence does not mean the abuser is any less dangerous to the victim, nor does it mean the victim is any less trapped by the abuse.

 

What Happens When the Abusive Relationship Ends?

Domestic violence does not always end when the victim escapes the abuser, tries to terminate the relationship, and/or seeks help. Often, it intensifies because the abuser feels a loss of control over the victim. Abusers frequently continue to stalk, harass, threaten, and try to control the victim after the victim escapes. In fact, the victim is often in the most danger directly following the escape of the relationship or when they seek help: 1/5 of homicide victims with restraining orders are murdered within two days of obtaining the order; 1/3 are murdered within the first month.2

Unfair blame is frequently put upon the victim of abuse because of assumptions that victims choose to stay in abusive relationships. The truth is, bringing an end to abuse is not a matter of the victim choosing to leave; it is a matter of the victim being able to safely escape their abuser, the abuser choosing to stop the abuse, or others (e.g., law enforcement, courts) holding the abuser accountable for the abuse they inflict.

Rural Areas and High Speed Internet


CBS Morning Show: How the Internet really works. With all the magic that the internet provides one would think it just comes from the sky when it’s Wi-Fi connected. You will learn all the secrets you’ve been missing and what most customers assume to be true is false. Journalist Andrew Blum shows how the equipment drives the internet to your home and Wi-Fi devices.

Over 35% of rural areas are without internet service. The government has stepped in and made the internet a “Basic Need Utility” which is great for the consumer.

Some areas that are covered have spotty connections to say the least. Big metropolitan cities consume most of the utility at this time. Thousands each day are finding their way to the internet and wanting more. Internet providers are scrambling to keep up with the demand, but when you have to lay cable and set up satellites it takes time.

So the rush is on to make sure all of America has internet service.

Tends to make a person wonder how much of our time will be used and for what on the internet? Nothing like tracking your every move!!! I think this is another RFI chip to track our shopping habits and what we consume and how much of it. People shop for food to TV’s online now. Automated food delivery, Order online and we deliver. Pretty soon the restaurants will close and become order by internet only because customers have the convenience of staying at home and eating the food by the TV they bought online.

Let’s say, if a company goes to “Paperless Billing”, which over half the companies have this service. Then everyone in the USA would have to be connected to the internet somehow. If you figure out how much paper is wasted each year on billing statements, advertising letters, flyers and postcards, this could be illuminated and cut out tree use.

There is an upside that will unlock all the magic at your fingertips. We will have to wait to see the downside to all of this in 5 years. It doesn’t look so rosy for the American workers once again. But it all remains to be seen what will happen to the jobs for many workers in the USA. Less movement of people through the cities means closed doors on businesses.

The Giant Cancer-Fighting Salad


This is Chris Wark’s recipe. He Beat Cancer and you can read all about his journey and his Success

Awesome Cancer Fighting Recipe

by Chris Wark (Chris Beat Cancer)

To strengthen your body’s ability to fight cancer, you need to eat what I ate:
The biggest baddest healthiest salad on the planet!
It consists of raw organic vegetables, sprouts, seeds, nuts and homemade dressing.
This salad is super healthy, delicious and will fill you up without zapping your energy.

The Raw Vegan Diet was a huge part of my anti-cancer strategy and I ate this salad every day, sometimes twice a day, during the first few years of my Chemo-Free Cancer Battle.

I wanted to put as many vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes into my body as possible and there’s no better way than Juicing and eating fresh raw organic fruits and vegetables.

There’s really no secret formula to this salad, but there are some guidelines to follow:

Absolutely no cheese, meat, or store-bought salad dressing.

It’s also a good idea to avoid fruit which can cause some indention when eaten with vegetables.

It is important that you use organic produce, which is free of toxic chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
And of course wash everything before you eat it. Then just chop it all up and throw it in a bowl!

Note: You’re might need some bigger bowls.  Mine doesn’t look very big in the photo, but it holds over 6 cups. That’s six servings of vegetables! 6-10 servings per day of fruits and vegetables is ideal for cancer prevention and healing.

The Giant Cancer Fighting Salad
-Start with the most nutrient dense dark leafy greens: Kale and Spinach. (Do not exceed 10 cups per day)
-Broccoli (The best source of sulforaphane which promotes liver detoxification, and Indole-3-carbinol, an anticarcinogenic compound )
-Broccoli Sprouts (Concentrated sulforaphane & I3C. Do not exceed four cups of sprouts per day)
-Cauliflower
-Purple cabbage (cheapest source of antioxidants per ounce in the world!)
-Slice of red onion, (yellow or green onions may actually be better)
-Leeks
-Artichokes
-Red, Yellow, or Green Peppers
-Mushrooms Bella, Cremini, Shiitake, etc.
-1/2 an Avocado
-Squash
-Zucchini
-Raw Sunflower seeds (sprouted is better)
-Raw Almonds (sprouted is better)
-Sprouted Garbanzo Beans
-Sprouted Mung Beans
-Sprouted Red or Green Lentils

Then I top it off with either one of these naturally fermented foods:

-Bubbies Old Fashioned Sauerkraut
Bubbies is made with only three ingredients: cabbage, water and salt.  It is fermented and cured with all natural enzymes intact and there is no vinegar added. (Bubbies Kosher dill pickles are super tasty too.)Look for it in the refrigerated section of your local grocer or health food store.

-Kimchi (Pronounced “Kim Chee”)
Kimchi is a spicy Korean version of sauerkraut typically consisting of fermented cabbage, onions, garlic, and pepper. Kim Chi has high concentrations of Vitamin C and Carotene in addition to Vitamin A, B1, B2, Calcium, Iron and beneficial lactic acid bacteria.
Recognized as one of the Top Five “World’s Healthiest Foods” by Health magazine.  Also in the refrigerated section.

Fermented foods are great for digestion and repopulate your intestinal flora with beneficial bacteria essential for health.

Repeat: Absolutely no cheese, meat, fruit, or store-bought salad dressing.

I know it seems weird to exclude fruit.  Here’s why:

Fruits and vegetables need different digestive juices, and when eaten together can create excess acid and indigestion. That is why it’s a good idea to eat them separately, especially if you are sick.  This even includes non-sweet fruits like tomatoes and cucumbers.

My Homemade “Zesty Italian” Salad Dressing
This is hands down the healthiest salad dressing on the planet!
It’s super easy and delicious.  Here’s how you make it:
-Add 1 tbsp Bragg organic extra virgin olive oil to your salad
-Add 1 tbsp Barleans cold-pressed flax oil to your salad
-Lightly drizzle Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to taste (another super healthy fermented food!)

Then shake on as much of these Four Cancer Fighting Spices as you can stand:
-Organic Oregano
-Organic Garlic Powder
-Organic Turmeric or Curry Powder
-Organic Cayenne Pepper (this will spice it up quick, go easy the first time)

I can’t tell you many times I have eaten this salad!   Over a thousand I bet.
And what’s funny is I have several books filled with of raw vegan recipes, but the Giant Salad ended up being my staple meal.

Most days I ate it for lunch and dinner. I didn’t mind eating the same thing every day because it was simple and quick to prepare.  I didn’t have to put any time into planning my meals. I knew exactly what to buy at the grocery store every week, and it’s so delicious and full of flavor it never got old!

One final note: The salad really doesn’t have to be “giant”, I make big ones because that’s what it takes to fill me up. Not everyone needs to eat that much. A small version is fine too. Just focus on getting as many nutrient dense vegetables in there as you can and make it big enough to satisfy your appetite.

Biophotonics: Basic Theory of Cancer Development and Defense

by International Institute of Biophysics 2002 (formerly published at http://www.lifescientists.de/publication/pub2002-05.htm), edited for enhanced readability by Healing Cancer Naturally

At the 11th International Conference “Biological Cancer Defense” in Heidelberg, Germany (May 3-5, 2002), Prof. F. A. Popp presented his basic theory of cancer development and defense. This theory was recently successfully discussed at the Heidelberg Cancer Research Institute (DKFZ) as well. In view of the positive response on the part of the scientists and the highly controversial nature of these ideas at rather clear evidence, we consider it worthwhile to publish a concise review of the substance of Popp’s theory:

Popp started by pointing out that over the last years, cancer death rates have not dropped but rather significantly increased, indicating that mainstream science has been pursuing a fundamentally erroneous direction in its attempts at combatting this scourge of humanity. Popp compared this flawed approach with attempts at scientifically answering the question: ”How high is the temperature of a gas?” by proceeding to catch the gaseous molecules and to investigate them under the microscope. While the technique may thus improve step by step to the use of electron microscopy and even higher resolution microscopy, it will forever fail to produce any essential result concerning the gas’ temperature, and not even yield a result clueing the investigator in to the fundamentally erroneous direction of his experiments. Similarly, tumor growth is doubtless nothing but a collective phenomenon of the cell population as a whole. Consequently, the central questions should focus on the control of cell division rate rather than on the molecular properties of individual cells. A basic example which simultaneously provides the starting point of Popp’s theory is cell division, i.e. the mitotic figures . As is well known, the molecular content is divided here into two equal parts, where the daughter cells will always contain just half of the entire number of biomolecules without deviations, while the statistical laws require a surplus or undershoot of , where N is the number of molecules. This would always be about 105 molecules more or less in one of the daughter cells.

The fact that practically no aberration takes place can be explained only in terms of a regulating electromagnetic field that stabilizes itself by the interaction with the cell(s). The electric and magnetic biforces take care of the correct movement (and reactions) of all the molecules. Actually, such a field is known and can be calculated. It is the electromagnetic field within conducting and/or dielectric cavities which spreads out over the interior of a cell according to the Maxwell equations.

The field pattern (local field strengths) follows the classical laws of the Maxwell equations, whereas the dynamics is subjected to quantum optics. shows such a spatial field pattern which has been calculated by taking account of the boundary conditions of a cell. (2). Those electromagnetic quasi-stationary electromagnetic field patterns spread over the wavelength range from at least c. 200 to 800 nm. shows the series of cavity resonator modes in the optical frequency range. Their superposition’s completely explain the mitotic figures both for stationary patterns and in the course of time for the temporal sequence of superposition’s. The electrical charges and magnetic momentums of the molecules strictly follow the electric and magnetic field pattern of the corresponding cavity resonator waves, respectively. As a consequence, the perfect spatio-temporal distribution of molecules can be understood, and it is not wrong to say that it can be understood only in this way.

At the same time one has to expect that an ideal photomultiplier should then register photons outside of the cell population just within this wavelength range of, say, 200 to 800 nm (3). In addition, since these field patterns represent coherent states, the probability of measuring n photons has to follow a Poissonian photocount statistics p(n) = exp (-) n/n!. Both is true (3,4). The evidence of these “biophotons” (which are emitted as single photons by living biological cells and systems satisfy just these conditions) has been shown by Popp’s group since 1976, and it has been reproduced by several other scientists working in the field of biophotonics. We will not repeat the confirmation of all these results, but would like to refer the interested reader to our bibliography (www.lifescientists.de/publication/bibliography1-1. htm or biophotonik.de).

Popp confined his Heidelberg address to the aspects concerning cancer development. Since a coherent field is self-reflective, it follows laws like

>¶< /¶ t (n) = a n + b n2 (equ. 1), fixme-u-g refer original

where n are subunits of the system (i.e. photons or cells), ¶ /¶ t (n) describes the time development of n, and a and b are parameters. b must not vanish in order to keep the coherence of the system.

A typical example is the correlation between biophoton emission and cell growth (Fig. 3), where b0 is necessary for cell growth stimulation. While a may refer to chaotic components, b is a collective parameter, dependant on integrative properties of the whole cellular system. b as the inhibitor of cell growth is strongly linked to the degree of coherence of the field. Consequently, a definite loss of coherence is a necessary and sufficient condition of cancer development (5,6). The cancer problem is reduced to the investigation of b and b/a.

Actually, Schamhart et. al. and Scholz et. al. have shown that the loss of the validity of equ. 1 and the loss of coherence, which can be expressed in terms of b and a, is strongly correlated to cancer growth (Fig. 4 and Fig. 5, (7,8)). This correlation has the power of a causal relation, since it does lead not only to quantitative, but also to qualitative differences between “normal” cells and “tumor cells” without any exception.

Once we arrived at this stage, we already had a powerful strategy and tool for overcoming the malignancy of cancer development. Where tumor tissue is available (surface tumors or tissue after operation), one may expose the tumor tissue to non-toxic agents and examine whether the biophoton emission will increase or decrease under this treatment. In case of increase (which happens in most cases), the remedy or therapeutic trial under examination is useless.

However, if the application of the remedy (agent) leads to a decrease in biophoton emission, one may assume that its application will result in an improvement of the state and possibly even in healing of the disease. Our experience has shown that in such cases the normal cells which are always present in a real tumor are likely activated into removing or suppressing the tumor cells. This therapy follows just the opposite strategy than the usual tumor therapy. Instead of killing tumor cells (and the connected normal tissue), it stimulates the normal tissue into overcoming malignancy of the entire cell population, in other words into providing b

The disadvantage of this therapy consists in the possibility of an operation being necessary to find the suitable remedy. However, Zhang and Popp (9) have shown that to some degree, the loss of coherence can be measured not only by investigating the biophoton emission of either tissue or body (10), but also by statistically analyzing physiological parameters, i.e. resistance (or conductivity) values of the body. Coherence of the regulating fields is strongly related to the log-normal distribution of physiological parameters, a fact that is well known in statistical medicine under the name of “multiplicative “Gestaltungs” principle. As soon as coherence is lost, the log-normal distribution of the skin’s conductivity values turns more and more into a Gaussian distribution. An example is shown in Fig. 6. A German company developed an electrode that enables us to measure hundreds of conductivity values of the human skin in a rather short time. After suitable adjustment of the measurement values the statistical distribution is available and provides a rather reliable indicator of the degree of coherence of the field within the human body. In this non-invasive manner, one may follow rather comfortably both the state of disease and its development under treatment.

In light of new confirmation (11-13), it seems useful to further pursue this theoretical concept and the idea of measuring the degree of coherence of the biophoton field in living systems in order to open the door to the understanding and eventual overcoming of cancer.

Biophoton therapy: an appraisal

Biophotons are interesting phenomena, and Dr Popp is the founder of the work on biophotons and the putative role in cellular biochemical reactions. The work of Dr Popp is hghly innovatove, but sadly enough, it has also be the base of the so called biophoton therapy. The Starlight is a machine, brought to the market, to treat a variety of diseases with biophotons, such as malaria, Lyme, multple sclerosis, schizophrenia, depression etc. Our foundation is very concerned about these unproven claims, and asked Dr Popp for his appraisal. In the following clipp you find our analysis of biophoton therapy.

But let us first quote the concern of Dr Popp related to the use of biophoton machines and the claimed indications:

We ourselves did never claim that “biophoton machines” are able at all. The living system is working with biophotons which regulate the whole cell metabolism, since the about 100 000 chemical reactions which are permanently taking place per second and per cell have to be activated by photons (according to the knowledge of biochemistry, see, for instance, the text books of biochemistry).

This requirement of a extremely high coherence within the living system EXCLUDES the possibility of manufacturing a machine with this unbelievable accuracy and capacities. Nevertheless, there are always scharlatans who believe in these miracles.

And here we quote the content of a internetsite on the Starlight:

BIOSTARLIGHT

Welcome to Biostarlight, a Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy company that utilises StarLight technology to enable the body to heal itself. Biostarlight was founded in 2006 by Anouk Puper, a qualified Bio-Photon Therapist based in Chelsea, London.

WHAT IS BIO-PHOTON COHERENCY THERAPY?

Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy assists the body’s immune system to function at optimum levels, which enables the body to heal itself. The Therapy utilises StarLight technology, which is a series of instruments capable of measuring light emissions from acupuncture points, using fibre-optic cables and crystal electrodes. Once these light emissions or vibrations have been located the readings are fed into the system, which is fully equipped with therapy programmes based on common symptoms of other patient’s experiences. The therapeutic process is then delivered using optical glass electrodes, held in the patient’s hands.

WHAT CAN IT BE USED TO TREAT?

Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy is commonly used to treat allergies, anxiety, acne, asthma, arthritis, blood pressure, bronchitis, chronic fatigue, colds and flu, intestinal problems, depression, dyslexia, emotional problems, electromagnetic disturbances, herpes, glaucoma, gall stones, headaches, leukaemia, scars, stomach complaints, pre-menstrual tension, migraines, kidney stones, menopause, nose and throat polyps, prostate problems, back pain, whiplash, crown’s disease, lyme disease, pfeiffer syndrome and multiple sclerosis.

EXAMPLES

Scar Therapy: Surgical scaring causes a great disturbance to the body, primarily in the blockage of the organ’s energy supply. With the StarLight one can treat these scars and in about 50% of all cases, the scar disappears completely from the skin’s surface. In all cases the scar tissue that has formed disappears along with its associated weather sensitivity and redness.

Spin Inversion Therapy: An increasing number of people suffer from “electron spin inversion”. This is caused by external magnetic fields that influence the rotational direction of the electrons in the body. As electromagnetic fields surround us in our everyday life (computers, television, electrical appliances…) the likelihood of electron spin inversion increases. The usual result is chronic fatigue, allergies and a body that works against itself. This therapy returns the electron spin to the proper direction.

Dyslexia Therapy: There are many people who suffer from dyslexia, a non-integration of the brain hemispheres. This treatment treats more than just dyslexia.

Psychological Problems: There are those who claim that physical problems stem from psychological disorders. It has been our experience that the reverse is true. Depression, manic depression, schizophrenia and phobias are all improved with the StarLight.

BIO-PROGRAMMING

Bio-Programming is a ground breaking healing method, which permits to resolve emotional conflicts, related to health disorders. Bio-programming will give you the opportunity to become the master of your emotional healing and improve all areas of your life.

The mission of Bio-Programming is to bring a new level of awareness regarding physical and emotional health and how the two are related. It offers solutions to those in search of healthy, purposeful and fulfilling lives.

The origin of health disorders

Scientific research shows that illness has a specific meaning and purpose in terms of the survival of the species. Health disorders as well as limiting behaviors are the result of an adaptive mechanism, which is triggered in synchronicity with our emotional traumas and stresses.

Despite  appearances,  nothing  happens  at  random  and  all  living  beings  are  programmed  in  terms  of survival. An illness or symptom is the result of an unresolved emotional distress. When an individual is unable to consciously find a solution to an emotional conflict and when this conflict creates unmanageable stress, the subconscious brain will transpose the stress into the organ. This is the moment when the illness begins.

As  soon  as  we  experience  a  peak  level  of stress  (shock  or  intense  permanent  conflict),  we  solicit  our sympathetic nervous  system  (fight  or  flight  response). During such circumstances our subconscious brain evaluates our situation as dangerous. Subsequently an adaptive program involving a change in our biology (disease) will manifest. Our  organs  express  our  emotions,  in  ways  that permit  to resolve  in  our body what we cannot resolve in our mind. For instance a shock related to a painful separation, the loss of a loved one, a worry for a child, or the fear of death can prompt unmanageable stresses and be at the root of specific illnesses. Similarly,  negative  reactions  or  limiting  behaviors within  each  of  us,  which  appear  to  be  triggered  by people  or  various  circumstances,  are  in  fact  associated  to our subconscious  imprints. We can eliminate such imprints from our subconscious and ultimately change our behavioral and biological reactions.

Our health disorders as well as our behaviors, choices and life paths, are often associated to ancestral and gestational  programs, which  we  can  liberate  in  order  to  increase  our  free  will  and  power  in  shaping  our future.

The method of Bio-programming will provide you with the resources you need to produce specific, long lasting healthful changes in your life. You will have the opportunity to reconnect with your true self, walk on the path you desire, and create your own future.

The bio-programming  Technique integrates  cutting  edge  modalities  and  knowledge  for  the  resolution of  psychological  conflicts  related  to  illness  as  well  as  limiting  behaviors. The modalities and methods used are not intended to replace any medical, psychiatric or licensed therapy treatments.

You have the power to change your own biology as well as your life path. Would you consider an  alternate  reality  and  put  aside  for  a  moment,  the  old  beliefs  you  have  adopted  during  your  life regarding  the  causes  of  health  disorders? Would  you  like  to  acquire  a  new  awareness  offered  by a revolutionary cutting  edge  science?

PHOTON DIRECTED ACTION: Including Low Level Laser (LLLT) has been a powerful adjunct to treating oral, dental and upper respiratory infections.  The mechanism of this FDA approved modality include stimulating the cells and tissue to function optimally.  In addition we have had dramatic responses reported using our Photon Directed Action (PDA) protocol for allergens and toxins. Several patients have virtually eliminated their allergy symptoms and medication need using this technique.

Photon Directed Action (PDA)

Shining light through a homeopathic vial has been shown to promote the release of a toxin or resolution of a condition if the homeopathic solution resonates with the body.  Photon Directed Action (PDA) has been reported to help detoxification, reduce allergic reactions, reduce autoimmunity, and promote an effective response to and apparent resolution of infections.  PDA has been reported to enable much more rapid and deeper detoxification of specific toxins compared to other techniques.  Some medical doctors using PDA report clearing of chronic deep-seated infections, resolution of auto-immune reactions, and elimination of allergies.

In Photon Directed Action (PDA), light passing through a glass vial containing a specific homeopathic substance is swept over your body enabling/directing you to release toxins and/or resolve infections.  The substances in the vial are determined by kinesiology or electrodermal screening (ASYRA).  A PDA treatment takes 5-10 minutes.  PDA is a safe and rapid way to “remove” infections or toxins in 24 hours that otherwise might take 50-100 days to release.

How Does PDA Work? Unlike pharmaceutical medicine, which works primarily by chemically blocking or stimulating biochemical pathways in the body, PDA works on the quantum physical properties of the body.  PDA carries information into the cells of the body via photons (light) very similar to the biophotons produced by each human cell. Fritz-Albert Popp, PhD and others have proven that biophotons produced by human cells are responsible for information transfer between cells and tissues that regulates cell growth, cell differentiation, and biochemical activities (such as cellular detoxification).  PDA uses photons to direct the body into action.  The specific action is determined by four main components:

  1. the wavelength of the light (we use specific infra-red and a red laser wavelengths)
  2. the intensity of the light (we use low level laser rather than the cutting lasers used in surgery)
  3. the frequency imprinted into the solution (usually determined by ASYRA testing or a specific specimen)
  4. the locations on the body where the photons are directed (everywhere except the eyes)

What is the basis for PDA?  Acupuncture is well known to facilitate healing.  Scientific studies verifying the effects of acupuncture abound, although scientific explanation for the mechanism of action remains elusive. The traditional theory states that Qi (chi) or vital energy is the animating force behind biochemical reactions and all living things.   It is the difference between life and death.  The goal of acupuncture is to reestablish balance within the flow of Qi, so the body will heal itself.  Acupuncture is traditionally accomplished through insertion of needles at acupuncture points, located along meridians — pathways along which Qi travels, connecting the surface of the body energetically with the internal organs.  Acupuncture points are more electrically conductive, i.e., exhibit less electrical resistance when tested by a galvanometer, compared to other skin.  Stimulation by any means thereby produces a polarity or electrical gradient, facilitating electromagnetic conduction, or movement of Qi.

Just as acupuncture is a very old system of medicine, so is light therapy or phototherapy (photon therapy]. Phototherapy was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece, China, and India. The Egyptians used sunlight as well as color for healing. In the past 120 years, great strides have been made in research and development of colored light as well as full spectrum light therapy. In 1876 Augustus Pleasanton reported the effects of stimulating glands, organs, and nervous system with blue light.  In 1877 Seth Pancoast reportedly used red and blue light to balance the autonomic nervous system. In 1878 Dr. Edwin Babbitt published The Principles of Light and Color, in which he wrote about a system for applying colored light to the body in colored bottles containing water charged by the sun. He was able to successfully treat many stubborn medical conditions, unresponsive to conventional treatments of the time.

Dr. Niels Finsen, a Danish physician, pioneered light therapy in the 1890’s. He noticed that tubercular skin lesions were much more common during the long dark winters, but rare in summer. In 1892 he began treating this condition with light. Later he used red light to prevent scar formation from smallpox, and eventually established a light institute for the treatment of tuberculosis. His work was so successful in the treatment of skin tuberculosis with ultraviolet light that he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903.

Dinshah Ghadiali, PhD, MD (India), an American who immigrated from India, was highly influenced and inspired by Babbitt’s work.  In 1897, the course of his life and views on medicine were forever changed when he saved the life of a woman dying from intractable dysentery.  Under conventional treatment his patient continued to have 100 diarrheal stools per day. As a last resort, Dinshah proceeded to shine indigo light on the patient’s body. By the end of the first day, the number of evacuations was reduced to 10. By the third day she was out of bed.

By 1920, after 23 years of research and clinical observation, Dinshah, as he came to be known in America, had refined a sophisticated system of color phototherapy he called Spectro-Chrome.  Influenced by a strong background in mathematics and physics, he reasoned that the physiologic effects of individual colors would correspond with the action of the mineral which exhibited that color on spectrometry.  He thereby determined in detail, specific “attributes” of the colors, i.e., the specific effects of the colors on the physiology.  He further determined precise and predictable formulations of applying colored light directly to the body for a variety of physical injury and illness. He was the first to develop a system of healing utilizing all the colors of the spectrum based on three principles:

  1. The human body responds to light
  2. Colors relate to physiologic function
  3. Color tonation (broadcasting specific colors to the body surface) aids bodily function.

The scientific explanation for this rests in quantum physics and color theory: the photoelectric effect first discovered by Hertz, and the theory of light elucidated by Einstein. By the photoelectric effect, when light strikes any material substance, electrons are discharged, creating a current. In other words, light interacts with matter as the energy of the light is transferred to electrons.

There is no doubt that light is necessary for health, and even life itself.  Colored light has a particular ability to balance the autonomic nervous system, which is crucial in most chronic and functional disorders as it regulates all of the automatic processes of the human body: breathing, the beating of the heart, the functioning of the digestive tract, the stress response. Light as an environmental stimulant, is second only to food in its impact on controlling bodily functions.  We are just starting to recognize, investigate, and understand the integral and profound role light plays in regulating and maintaining health in the body/mind.

Russian researchers at the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine have shown that light applied to the human skin penetrates the body between 2 and 30 mm, depending on the color frequency (another explanation for the individual color attributes).  The researchers found that only certain areas of the body were able to transfer light beneath the surface, and that these areas corresponded to acupuncture points and the light was conducted within the body along acupuncture meridians.  Although light penetration may be superficial, deeper physiological processes may be stimulated. It seems that the meridians are a light transferal system in the body somewhat like optical fiber.  Just as light through fiber optics is being used to transfer information almost instantly around the globe, perhaps the meridian system as a conductor of light provides the coherent unified theory of a subtle energy information system within the body.  This could be the missing link, uniting materialistic medicine with subtle energy healing modalities, and bridge the gap between physics and metaphysics.

Tina Karu, Ph.D., with the Laser Technology Center in Russia and affiliated with the University of California at Berkeley has researched the effects of light on the cell since the 1980’s. She has found that there are photo-receptors at the molecular – cellular level that, when triggered, activate a number of biological reactions: DNA / RNA synthesis, increase cAMP levels, protein and collagen synthesis, and cellular proliferation. The result is rapid regeneration, normalization and healing of damaged cellular tissue. In essence, light is a trigger for the rearrangement of cellular metabolism.

Research from Cornell University also supports this supposition that the body absorbs light through the skin, and that this light has physiological action. Chrono biologist Scott Campbell found that the biological clock could be reset by shining light on the back of the knee.  Prior to this it was believed that the light had to be transmitted through the eyes.

Photon therapy in combination with acupuncture is actually quite common, interfacing through the use of laser technology.  Laser, an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, is simply light that is coherent. Coherent light beams have minimum divergence and maximum parallelism over distance.  This is as opposed to incoherent light which is regular visible light beams which scatter. Hot lasers are used in surgery to cut, cauterize, and destroy tissues.  In contrast, we only use Lower power lasers, referred to as “soft” or “cold” lasers, in place of needles for acupuncture (“needleless acupuncture”) to produce therapeutic effects through photo bio stimulation. Soft lasers are classified by the FDA as Class III, non-significant risk medical devices for investigational purposes only.

There is a vast amount of research documenting the biological responses and efficacy of laser bio stimulation, much of which is applicable to incoherent light. It has a homeostatic effect: promoting skin regeneration or reducing scar tissue, promotes hair re-growth, decreasing pain or promoting enhanced sensitivity in numb areas, reducing swelling and irritation or improving circulation and enhancing the immune system. However, soft laser treatment is not without risk. It can be overused in intensity and duration. It is harmful if it comes in contact with the eyes.

Dr. Karu (noted above) contends that coherent light (LASER) is not necessary, that incoherent light is equally effective at producing clinical results. Furthermore, she found that coherent light is converted to incoherent light in the body. The exact effect depends on the wavelength, dose and intensity. In Israel, medical doctors utilize incoherent light transmitted by light emitting diodes (LED’s) in the practice of neurology, dentistry, dermatology, physiotherapy, and in cosmetic applications to promote collagen and elastin formation.

Does PDA address immune problems?  Autoimmunity explains a lot of otherwise unexplainable health problems.  Since the immune system doesn’t recognize your own cells as “foreign” it will not attack itself unless a “non-self” molecule enters your system and binds to one of your own cells.  Your immune system will react to this hybrid molecule as foreign, and the antibodies and other immune mediators produced will then cross-react with the normal human cell/receptor/protein.  Let’s say the foreign protein or microbe cross-reacts with the neurotransmitter involved in sleep.  If your body now reacts to this neurotransmitter, you may never again enjoy a full night’s rest.  If the normal human molecule was involved your sex hormones; you may have your reproductive cycle or function out of balance.  If you are susceptible to autoimmunity, the more toxins to which you are exposed, the greater is your chance for ill health based upon this principle of auto-immunity.

PDA is designed to help your body release these “foreign” molecules from your body through a four step process.  First, the “message” is carried in a homeopathic solution containing the frequency of the specific toxin/microbe to be addressed.  The “message” is delivered into your entire body and into your cells using the infra-red photons from the Quanta Ray, which seems to stimulate your cells and tissues to release the toxin/microbe.  The next 3 messages are delivered using a red LASER beam.  The first message (homeopathic solution) is designed to aid in releasing toxins/microbes out of your cells into the circulation or into your interstitial space between cells.  It is called a DDS frequency (Detoxify and Drainage Support).  The next message (homeopathic remedy) contains the frequencies of the toxin/microbe(s) determined by the ASYRA evaluation.  These frequencies help you escort the toxins/microbes now liberated from your cells and tissues out of your body.   Last we direct a message against the auto-immune process previously set up by the toxin in question to restore/support/stimulate any tissues affected by the toxin.

What can I expect from a PDA session?  Generally, ASYRA testing is done to assess your specific needs. The software within the ASYRA lists energetic frequencies that support detoxification of your individual needs based on the specific toxins found.  A small bottle of Resonance Formula derived from the ASYRA is placed in front of the LEDs of a Quanta-Ray infra-red device, which is then used to “sweep” your body.  The Quanta-Ray directs the ASYRA Resonance Formula into your body.  Following this, a red LASER “sweeps” your body using three different Resonance Formulations to direct your body to:

  1. Detoxify and drain your cells and tissues of toxins and microbes
  2. Respond to the chosen ASYRA Formula or specimen and promote excretion from your body
  3. Re-balance your Glands, Hormones, Organs, and Neurotransmitters (GHON for short).

By using the LED and laser over your entire body (except your eyes), we ensure that all of your acupuncture control points (of which in Traditional Chinese Meridians there are a few hundred, but there may be many many more not classified as common but are areas of increased susceptibility to information input) are stimulated.  Using this sequence, the PDA session is more reliable and enables very short treatment times (10 minutes).  Because we use a laser, even though of modest power, the staff member and the patient wear special glasses that reduce any chance of eye injury from the laser.  In addition, we ask you remove all metal from your body to reduce reflections.

Following the PDA session, you must allow the body to run through a complete 24 hour cycle by avoiding any activities that might interfere with drainage, detoxification, acupuncture meridian flow, autonomic nervous system function, or emotional-limbic system tranquility.

  1. Avoid the main ingredients for which the PDA was chosen such as sulfa products, chemicals, foods, etc.
  2. Drink plenty of purified (never distilled) water.
  3. Avoid any “hands on” therapies such as massage, chiropractic, electrotherapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, strenuous work-outs, etc.
  4. Do not use any homeopathic agents including the ASYRA Resonance Formula

Occasionally toxins seem to get stuck in specific “stubborn” locations during the 24 hours after a PDA session.  When this occurs, another PDA session using the Quanta Ray and red Laser can be emphasized on the areas of greatest inflammation (toxic foci, recent surgeries, recent injuries, etc.).  Sometimes an acute situation arises and will require an LED sweep to be done again.

OK… If You Are Going To Have A Pet, You Need To Take Care Of It Properly.


PETS: 101 Don’t make it 911

  • Keeping your pet’s food dishes and water bowls clean. You surely wouldn’t leave your plate out all night and reuse it in the morning and again that night.
  • Make sure you always keep a collar on your dog.
  • Make sure your yard is fenced and secure. A missing pet is never a good day.
  • Always walk your dog on a leash. Just proper etiquette and courtesy for others in the area.
  • Make sure their sleeping areas are clean and comfortable.
  • Always make sure you pets have water. Dogs can dehydrate quickly if they are panting due to stress or heat. Be prepared and always keep water in your car and always carry water with you on hikes and play dates for your dog.
  • Never leave your pet in a hot car… Period no exceptions. A cars temperature can rise quickly. Even on a cloudy day.

 

What You Need to Know Before Bringing Home a New Pet

By: Dr. Karen Becker

In this video Dr. Karen Becker discusses the importance of planning for a new furry addition to the family and gives loads of great advice on how to successfully integrate a new dog or cat into your home and life.

Today I want to talk about the incredibly important topic of how to successfully add a new pet to your family.

 

This is a very exciting time for most families (and their new pets), but it can also be a very stressful time for lots of different reasons. For example, some new pet owners underestimate how much time it might take to introduce the new arrival to other animals in the home.

Often, a new pet is much needier than family members expected. And then there’s lack of planning for the stress itself, whether it’s temporary or permanent.

As I often say, preparation is priceless. Pre-planning for your new arrival can go a long way toward reducing stress not only on your pet, but also on the two-legged members of your family.

Pet Proofing Your Home

This is something you should do before bringing your new dog or cat home with you. You might not think of everything you need to do right off the bat, but at a minimum, you should move cords out of reach, and plants if your new addition is a kitty.

If you have children, you can involve them by having them get down on the floor to take a puppy or kitten-eye view of all the temptations your new pet might want to investigate. Pick up anything that has dropped on the floor like rubber bands or paper clips.

I tell clients at my practice that the best incentive for keeping a neat, clean house is a puppy or kitten, because if it’s been lost or left behind, they will find it. Kitties will disappear behind your entertainment center or under your bed, and reappear with stuff you’ve either long forgotten or never knew was there in the first place.

Pet-proofing your home before your new puppy, kitten, dog or cat arrives is the best way to prevent a choking, vomiting, diarrhea or other crisis during those important first few weeks of new pet ownership.

Making Important Decisions

Another thing you should plan for ahead of time are decisions such as:

  • Where will your new pet eat her meals?
  • Where will his bowl of fresh water be kept?
  • Where will he sleep – in your bedroom? Will he sleep with you or in his own bed?
  • Where will you place the litter box, or in the case of a dog, where is the designated outside potty spot?
  • Where will you put kitty’s scratching post?
  • If you plan to crate train, where will you keep it?

If you’re bringing a new puppy home, I urge you to purchase a crate. Many of you may have already watched my videos on crate training and know I consider it a very important part of keeping your precious pup safe when you’re not at home or can’t keep a constant eye on him.

People who are uncomfortable with crates say things like, “I’m uncomfortable putting my dog in a box while I’m gone.” If that’s your feeling, you should know that dogs, by nature, are den animals. They crave being in a small, safe, dark spot.

I strongly recommend you have the crate ready when your puppy comes home. If she’s allowed to sleep in your bed with you for several days and then you move her to a crate, you’re apt to run into resistance.

Your pup has already learned her nighttime sleeping spot is your bed. Moving her to the crate may cause an exaggerated response – whining or crying, typically — over and above what you could have expected had you crated her on her first night with you. So I recommend you purchase the crate before the puppy comes home, and put it to use her first day home. READ MORE

Sex and Sugar: How Sweets Affect Your Libido


By Chad Rhodes August 9, 2017

Sexual Dysfunction and Sugar

Your performance in the bedroom depends on your choices in the kitchen. Research has proven that sugar intake could and is related to sexual dysfunction. Depending on how much sugar you consume between regular sugar and sugary products. Soda, cereal, and the list goes down to how much sugar in your coffee.

Can Too Much Fat or Sugar in Your Diet Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

How to separate fact from fiction

by: Cleveland Clinic

There’s a lot of advice out there about the ways a man’s diet can limit him when it comes to having children. We asked urologist Edmund Sabanegh, MD, Chairman of Urology and Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Male Fertility, to help us separate fact from fiction.

Here are his answers to several of the most common questions about links between diet and erectile dysfunction (ED) or male infertility.

Q: Can my food choices cause ED?

A: High-fat diets and higher cholesterol levels are correlated with ED, which is largely caused by clogs in the small blood vessels. So the same things that cause heart disease can lead to ED. In fact, ED can often be the first sign of heart disease.

RELATED: Risk Factors for Erectile Dysfunction

Q: Can drinking sugary sodas or eating a lot of sugar cause male infertility?

A: Eating or drinking a lot of sugar can lead to obesity, which is a risk factor for diabetes. Poorly controlled diabetes can impact male fertility. Obesity can also cause changes to many hormones including testosterone, which can also lower fertility.

Q: Can eating fatty foods contribute to infertility?

A: Diets that are high in fat seem to be associated with infertility. There are several studies to suggest this.

One study, in particular, compared young men who ate a Western diet to those who ate what the researchers called a “prudent” diet. The Western diet consisted of things like red meat and pizza. The prudent diet was fish, chicken, vegetables and whole grains. Those on the prudent diet had improved fertility and better sperm motility in general.

Q: Do I need to avoid sugary or fatty foods completely if I want to conceive or if I’m concerned about ED?

A: Fertility and erectile function are products of your overall health. One sugary soda or fatty meal here and there isn’t a problem. It’s an issue when you have a regular pattern of taking in high-fat or sugary food or drinks.

Q: Can pesticides from produce that isn’t organic lead to male infertility?

A: There’s evidence that workers exposed to pesticides can have lower fertility, but it’s hard to trace how much pesticide is in store-bought fruits and vegetables. What we do know is that pesticides, in general, can affect sperm count and motility in high enough doses.

Q: Is there a link between processed meats and male infertility?

A: Meats in general are high in fat and fat is an issue. Processed meats are higher in nitrates, which we believe can also affect the sperm.

RELATED: 7 Choices That Keep Your Sperm Healthy

Q: Are there other foods I should avoid when trying to conceive?

A: Foods that contain phytoestrogens, such as soy products, can change your estrogen levels and potentially lower fertility.

You also need to be careful about androgen supplements, bodybuilding agents and testosterone supplements. The World Health Organization is actually looking at testosterone as a potential male contraceptive because it turns off sperm production. So talk to your doctor before taking any type of supplement.

Q: Are there certain foods I should eat when trying to conceive?

A: Foods that are high in antioxidants, such as fruits and vegetables, may improve fertility in males. 

Q: I’ve heard that caffeine can cause male infertility. Is that true?

A: I don’t believe caffeine is a significant issue unless you’re a very high consumer.
