Government Shut Down: finally a time that brings people (a Nation?) together?

This is a tragedy that has numerous effects. But instead of giving into fear, we need to unite together. We recognize we all have the same basic need to live. Everyone needs to eat, drink good water, rest, stay a good temperature. We all have bills to pay, and we can be ruled by our emotions with “ups and downs”. We need to recognize everyone is an individual with their own beliefs. We should also recognize that most religions all share that people need to be neighborly. Imagine, by John Lennon, is a perfect song that people should  take into consideration.


Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today                                9163d2bujipl
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Just take a moment, do not take any of this in fear or guilt, but simply,
-If a child is hurt, we pause everything (action(s), emotions, thought process…) to help them.
-If adults are arguing and a child enters the room, the adults try to stop and be positive for the child.
-Read a tragedy about a child, feel sympathy
This is simply saying take a moment, what you want may be exactly what they want

Common Bad chemicals found in hygiene and cleaning products, and a few other things to avoid

Just because you see “Natural” or Organic on a product does not necessarily mean that there are no harmful ingredients in them. Be sure to do you research. After all, poop is natural.

If the ingredients are not labeled, do not put it in your cart until you have done your research.

Fragrance/Parfum can be anything, so unless the “fragrance/parfum” is labeled with its fragrance/parfumed ingredients, avoid products that just state fragrance/parfum.

a few ingredients found in many products:

-citric acid
-guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride
-tetrasodium EDTA
-sodium chloride
-Sodium Laureth Sulfate
-Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
-Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone
-Sodium Benzoate (also found in drinks, ice cream, and other products)
-*Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice [Aloe Vera]-*look up- add link

Try to avoid AcetaminophenAluminium, Teflon and PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid) commonly found in non-stick products. Avoid any man-made chemical until you have done your research.

Look for non-GMO products, but still look at the ingredients. If your getting things in a can, be sure the can is BPA free (non BPA)

If an item has a long list of ingredients, it’s better to avoid it all together. But be sure that the “long” list is not clarifying its ingredients with (….) to identify what was used, or clarification (type of plant, oil…)

you can do research on any ingredient you desire to know more about, which I would highly recommend. Our children, the planet Earth, and the future generations need our help

Once you have started and took the time, you will know what is safe to get and shopping made much easier and healthier

Know what it is that you, and your family, are eating, drinking, putting on your skin, cleaning with

Apple Cider Vinegar: My Experience

I started taking 2 tablespoons (TBSP) Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) diluted into 1 cup (8 oz) of filtered water on the morning of July 6th, 2017. The reason I wanted to start taking ACV was because of all the great things people have been telling me it has on the body and how it makes them feel (more energy, less appetite). It is also a cheaper way to keep the body detoxified, full of energy, and have less food cravings.

I recommend eating 10-30 minutes before starting, and maybe a healthy slice of bread, or tiny snack, if you get the shakes or hungry to curve this away. Since ACV is very acidic, do not take on an empty stomach. If you feel shaky, dizzy, light headed, do not operate any type of machinery.

*forgot to mention that the first 3 days, I had to use the potty (#2) within 20 minutes!

Day 1: Got shaky and hungry. Felt like I had “butter” fingers since I dropped a few things throughout the day. A little shaky, my body, not actually shaking, but shake feeling. But not as hungry after an hour of taking it for the rest of the day (I ate less, got full sooner when I ate lunch and dinner). I had more energy.

Day 2: took about same time, after breakfast. Needed a slice of bread about 15 minutes later. Felt a little shaky but not as much as day 1. Less appetite throughout the day. I had more energy and felt ready for the day.

Day 3: took around same time, did not need the bread this time. Very little shaky feeling. Had more energy and was ready for the day.

Day 4: took around same time (15 minutes after breakfast). No need for the snack and ate less throughout the day, I had energy and felt good.

Day 5: took at usual time. Same as day 4.

Day 6: I got busy this morning and took it in the late afternoon, just 1 TBSP. No shaky feeling, no need for a snack, and got full quick at dinner.

Day 7: took 2 TBSP in the morning. I did have a parfait mid morning. Doing good, a little groggy, but full of energy and awake.

Day 8: took same amount at usual time. still feeling good with more energy and less appetite.

Day 9 to Day 11: Got busy and forgot to take

Day 12: took 2 tbsp at usual time. felt great. More energy. ate less.

Day 13: Took 1 tbsp ACV and 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice. Feel good. Less appetite, full quicker, more energy

As of 7/26/17 I am still doing ACV daily, 1-2 TBSP diluted in 4-8 oz class of filtered water, in the morning, and I plan on continuing taking ACV daily as it has helped improve my mood & energy, decreased my appetite, and my bowl movements have also improved.

I would recommend drinking it slow, and diluted, so any side effects are not too overwhelming. Stick with it. Like most “diet” changes, detoxifing, the first couple days will have the most “side effets”, but then your body gets used/adjusts to it, and usually for the better.

Other great benefits of ACV

As of December 2017, I  continue to take ACV, miss a few days here and there, and have noticed a weight loss and better health.

Goat Milk

Sadly goat milk has been be-littled in the U.S.A. Only in the United States is cow milk mostly consumed. Americans have been directed towards things they should eat, drink, own…just about anything in a “normal life” that is putting money into corporations, etc, and destroying our bodies and our planet. But more on that in another post, straight to information about goats milk. Goat milk does not have to have that “goaty” taste. If you keep the male goat separate from the milking goats during the milk season, that “goaty” taste will not be present. In fact, since I myself do not like the taste of cows milk, I like, and want, goats milk. It tastes similar to cows milk, but has less of a “lacty” taste. So for those who do not like milk but want all the benefits milk offers, look for raw goats milk near you (as you should not eat, or drink,  things more than an hour away unless you know the source and can manage the proper transportation and storage).

We love animals and believe in treating them like family, neighborly. So when you read the articles how goats milk does not have the “goaty” taste, the separating of the male, just put them in a separate field, maybe with the “kids” (baby goat) or another animal that they get along with, and they can be back with the “tribe” after milking season.
