More News on Fukushima


As the fiscal cliff looms, I wonder what kind of world we'll wake up to on January 1st.  We know that food prices are going to go up, so called "experts" are saying they will only go up 2-3% but I think in reality it will be closer to 10-15%.  Gas prices will probably go up along with other necessities.  January 1st of 2014, health insurance premiums will definitely go up.  So if you are paying a high premium amount now, just think of what you'll be paying in about a year. 

But what about what is going on in the world, specifically Fukushima?  This problem isn't going to be going away any time soon. 

The radiation cloud isn't going away, the University of Maryland is still tracking it.

Navy workers are suing because of irreparable harm that was done to their health because of radiation levels that exceeded safety standards.

"According to then-existing data uniquely known to the defendant at the time, the plaintiffs' consequent exposure to radiation within their zone of operation, then indicated that radiation levels had already reached levels exceeding the levels of exposure to which those living the same distance from Chernobyl experienced who subsequently developed cancer," the complaint states.
 So if the levels exceeded those of Chernobyl, some distance away imagine what has reached us?  The coverup on this has disgusted me to no end.  It makes me wonder what kind of world that my grand children & great grandchildren are going to grow up in.

Until next time, have a safe week.

A word about SSRI's


As our country is still reeling from the shootings in Sandy Hook, the biggest question is "Why did this happen?"  Just yesterday I read in the news reports that they want to put an armed office in every school to prevent this from happening again.  Is more gun control the answer?  In a forum that I hang out, one person said that guns are not needed in the school system or in the home.  Is that really the answer?

Lets take a look at the history of school violence.  The worst school attack hasn't been in the 20 years.  It actually occurred in the late 20's in Bath, MI.  38 kids & 7 adults were killed.

A single bullet wasn't fired, a knife wasn't drawn, just a upset tax payer that his tax dollars was going to the school system.  You didn't know about that attack?  Not many people do, its a dirty little secret that has been buried in the history books.

School attacks started within 1 year of SSRI medication being administered to people.

What are SSRI's?  They are Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors.  They are commonly prescribed for depression.   Lets take a look a closer look at what these letters mean.

Selective - highly specific in activity or effect

Serotonin -  Serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine is a monoamine neurotransmitter. Biochemically derived from tryptophan, serotonin is primarily found in the gastrointestinal tract, platelets, and in the central nervous system of animals including humans.

reuptake - the reabsorption by a neuron of a neurotransmitter following the transmission of a nerve impulse across a synapse

inhibitor - an agent that slows or interferes with a chemical action

One of the side affects of SSRI's is worsening depression.  They also make it so some may lack any sort of empathy towards others.  Most of the people who have done these attacks on schools were on some sort mind altering drug.  Big pharma & FDA are wroking together to try to get every single American on some sort of psychiatric drug.  I've even read some articles where they want to put Lithium in our water supply.  Fluoride is already being put into our water supply under the guise its for our teeth.  It was given to prisoners in concentration camps to lessen their tendency to want to escape. 

There is a time & place for doctors & medicine.  But the practice of haphazardly prescribing medicines without proper follow up needs to end.  I wonder how many doctors have actually read the inser that comes with drugs they are prescribing?  When I read a vaccine insert, it takes me almost 2 hours to read it from start to finish.  Then I cover it again, high lighting the important stuff.

As I was doing some research for this article, I came across this web page on how Psychiatric Drugs are making America mad.  A very long but good read -

This article is in NO WAY trying to downplay the Sandy Hook shooting.  I cried when I read the news online & as I watched the news on TV.  I hugged my daughter tighter & longer that day & in the days to come. 

Have a great holiday & a great week.  It will be a very busy week around our home.

Until next time,

An Analysis of Proposition 37

Greetings readers,
As the semester winds down, we had to choose a final project for my composition class.  I chose a more formal paper to take a look at Proposition 37 that was voted on in the State of California.  Its unfortunate that this was voted down.  We can thank the unscrupulous companies who use GMO products for lobbying against it. 

In the November 2012 elections, the State of California voted on a proposition that would require food manufacturers to label the food if it had GMO grains in it. Many people in our nation feel we have the right to know what is in our food. Others really feel that it doesn't matter and that food is food. Does it matter? Many companies have done research asserting that eating GMO grains are detrimental to our health. I feel that as a nation have a right to know what is in our food because food manufacturers were required to put the ingredients on the label, if the food is made with GMO grain, we should know about it.

Proposition 37 would require food manufactures to label food going into the State of California to have a label if it has GMO product in it. Currently 20 states have bills in committee that would require the labeling of GMO products coming into the state but out of all these states, California is the only one that made it to a vote. Since the vote failed in California, the movement that brought it to a vote is now looking to Oregon and Washington to bring it to a vote again.

Proposition 37 would require raw and some processed foods to be labeled as having GMO product in them. It would prohibit food from being labeled “natural.” It would exempt foods that are certified organic, foods that unintentionally used GMO ingredients, meat that was unintentionally fed GMO grains or processed with only a small amount of GMO ingredients. It would also require the labeling of dog food with meat in it that used GMO fed animals but meat for human consumption would be exempt.

Soy products are required to have labeling but not milk and cheese products. Food coming in from other countries are not required to be labeled if they say the food doesn't have GMO product in it thereby creating a loophole for foreign countries to import their food into our country that may or may not have GMO food product in it.

So what are the positive points of GMO labeling? First off, we would know what we are eating and would have a choice as whether or not to eat a GMO food or go for the more natural unmodified food. Independent doctors and researchers have tried to warn us of the health dangers of GMO foods but the FDA has let the nation down as far as requiring the labeling of GMO products. The European union and Japan have required any food coming into the countries to be labeled, why them and not us?

A study done in Canada on 30 pregnant women found that the chemical Cry1Ab, the Bt toxin was found in pregnant women. A study done by Monsanto showed that this chemical caused kidney and liver damage in rats. A 2009 report showed that this chemical use was up by 200% and the companies that are producing it are saying that its not getting into the bodies of the people who eat the food.  Some complications of this toxin in pregnant women are; prenatal complications like abortion, prematurity, fetal growth restriction, and pre-eclampsia or reproductive disorders. C-sections and infertility cases are climbing higher and higher every year.

More than 40% of the population in 50 countries around the world have said they want GMO labeling so they can make a choice. If GMO grains are such a good deal, why not be proud of it and have the label on the food? No long term safety studies have been done on GMO food, independent scientists have said that we won't see the long term affects of ingesting GMO foods for a long time.

What is the downside to the labeling of GMO? According to opponents of Proposition 37, it would require food manufacturers to either relabel all food going into states that require labeling or make their food out of more expensive food ingredients therefore increasing the cost of food for the consumer. They are also saying that it would require new packaging with the GMO label therefore increasing the cost of the food.

According to the sponsors of opposition of Proposition 37 it was written by a lawyer that has so many laws written into that it would open up lawsuits to any grower without any evidence of harm. t hereby passing on the cost of the food to the consumer because the grower would need to recoup their losses that are lost thru lawsuits. This is one of the reasons why opponents of Proposition 37 are saying that average consumers grocery bill will go up $400 per year.

According to opponents this would be a hidden tax that would hit the people that could least afford it - the elderly and the poor. They are already on a fixed, tight income and this hidden tax would add to their burden of being able to make ends meet.

During the 2007 election, presidential candidate Barack Obama said that Americans have the right to know what they are eating. Obama said “Here’s what I’ll do as president. I’ll immediately implement country-of-origin labeling, because Americans should know where their food comes from.

We’ll let folks know whether their food has been genetically modified, because Americans should know what they’re buying.” This was said during his 2007 election campaign. The big question now is that since he has been re-elected will he keep his promise during his second term?

According to Michael Pollan in an interview that he did with Amy Goodman, he said that in a way "Obama endorsed Proposition 37.” He promised this Iowa farmers before the Iowa caucuses which led to a round of applause from the audience.

According to Pollan, “this is not a California issue, this is a national issue.” What happens in California usually spreads across the country. Gay marriage is a good example of this. First legalized
in California, it is now legal in many other states despite how many voters feel about it.

For the past 20 years Americans have tricked into eating food that is believed to be equivalent to food thanks to a Bush loophole and with the help of former Monsanto attorney Michael Taylor who was installed as the Deputy Commissioner for Policy at the FDA that drafted a policy in 1992. The FDA also approves all drugs that have been recalled over the years including almost 1,800 in 2009.   Can we really trust them to make sure we are eating safe food ?

As someone who knows how the farming community works. As someone who has seen Monsanto in action, closely watching the farmers who won't comply with their rules, watching the drivers who leave their driveways and watching them until they head to the grain dumps, I have to wonder why are they so insistent on everyone complying with their rules?

An Iowa farmer fed his pigs GMO grain only. All of his pigs became sterile. They would be impregnated, go thru the pregnancy process but when it came time for them to give birth, nothing would happen. It was like they were going thru a pseudo pregnancy. Another Iowa farmer from Milton who plants both GMO and non-GMO grain. He says that the non-GMO outproduces the GMO grain.

Do I believe that food needs to labeled if it has GMO in it? Absolutely, without a doubt. I have the right to know if I'm eating food that is going to change how my body works. I have the right to know that if I eat that food, it may cause infertility, it may change my DNA or it may cause other problems. The U.S. Is the sickest nation on earth right now. We spend more on healthcare than any other nation in the world. There are so many factors that factor into this statistic. But the one main factor that is associated with this topic is that we allow GMO product into our food and we're not even allowed to know about it.

It puts a whole new meaning to the dumbing down of America.

It is sad.........& a word about exemptions

Greetings readers,

I'm going to rant a bit here before I get into the main part of my entry. 

It is really sad when you are criticized for making an informed decision not to vaccinate your child after you have spent decades researching vaccines, their ingredients & their dangers.  It's really sad when you are told that God won't be watching over your child when he or she gets sick because of your decision NOT to vaccinate. 

If parents would keep their kids that are sick at home like they should instead of sending them to school or letting them go out in public, then most sickness wouldn't be so widespread.  It would be nice if people who promote vaccines would do their homework on how vaccines are failing left & right & are actually causing the viruses to mutate & become more deadly than they would be if they had just let nature take its course.  Whooping cough & even polio have become more deadly all thanks to vaccines.  (an entry on this will be forthcoming)  Yes, Polio is still around its just renamed to aseptic meningitis if you don't have some type of paralysis for more than 36 days.

Sorry to sound so harsh or mean.  But I saw the wording about God not looking after my daughter since I made the conscious decision not to vaccinate, it just made my blood boil.

I've checked on my past post about exemptions & most of those links are now down or out of date.  So here are new ones.

Here is a link of doctors nationwide that are friendly towards families that have made the choice to not vaccinate their children.

Here is the link to the paperwork for states nationwide & some countries to opt out of the vaccine program.

And if your doctor does press the issue, hand him this form.  He gives you a form that tells you that you understand that you are putting your child at risk by not vaccinating.  He/she is putting themselves at risk for telling you that vaccines are safe & nothing is going to happen to your child if they inject those toxins into your child.

Remember, vaccine manufacturers are zero liability when it comes to vaccines.  If your child is injured or dies after getting a vaccine, you have to go to court & prove it was the vaccine that did it & not something else.  Billions has been paid out to parents.  If vaccines are so safe, why is there a hazard tax attached to each vaccine?  If vaccines are safe, then why are vaccine manufacturers immune from direct lawsuits from parents of vaccine injured children? 

I guarantee that 99.9% of doctors will NOT sign the form.  They will leave the room & tell you to have a nice day.

As the semester winds down (only 5 days left), I'm getting more ideas for future blog articles.  One is about Polio being renamed.  Another one is about the flu shot with info from high ranking institutions. Another one is about whooping cough mutating all because of the vaccine.

Have a great week,

Would you eat this apple?


So you are sitting in the doctors office & he is trying to tell you how good vaccines are for your child.

Give him this scenario....... Lets take an apple-then inject 3 mcg of mercury into it. Then lets inject 200 mcg of aluminum. Then lets add some formaldehyde, kidney cells from a dog and some polysorbate-80 for good measure. Now, would you like to eat this apple? He'll say "no." If you won't eat an apple that has those ingredients injected into it then WHY is it ok to inject these substances into children & expect nothing to happen?

Here is a link to the ingredients that are in vaccines per the CDCs website -

Vaccines bypass the bodies natural defenses. Our nasal passages, skin & stomach help us deal with our environment. The nasal passages help trap dirt that we breath in, our skin helps protect us from germs in our environment, our stomachs protect us when we eat things we shouldn't, ex. we eat food that isn't safe to eat & we get sick. This is a good thing!!

So, the next time you see your doctor & he wants to push the flu shot or some other vaccine.  Ask him if he wants to eat the apple. 

Until next time,

The Vaccine Hoax is Over

Greetings everyone,

As I prepare for the final few weeks of school for the semester, I took a short break & came across this article. 

This is a GREAT article!!  It exposes vaccines for the fraud they are.

The site was apparently shut down so a user on a forum that I hang out on was able to find the google cache site.  Enjoy!!  Pass it around & print it off to show everyone.  I think big pharma is getting scared.

I have a graduation date, its the Spring of 2014.  I'll be graduating from a community college, then I'll take a year off from school before heading to Iowa State University or Drake University to get my Bachelor's degree.

Have a great Thanksgiving.  We're planning a small get together here at the house before resting up for shopping on black Friday.

Until next time,

More News on Fukushima


The sun has set on another busy work week.  This was a very busy week for me.  Lots of homework for school & lots of work to do for my job.  We also started house hunting this week.  We've lived in our current home for 15 years.  Its in town & we would love to get out into the country where we belong.  We're going to go look at a house on Sunday that is pretty close to what we are looking for.

There have been some interesting developments at Fukushima.  You won't hear about it in the news & its affecting America in a fairly big way.

There was an explosion & fire at the Fukushima plant this week.

Its like I've said before, we are NOT being told the whole story.  The radiation from Fukushima is still being carried across the Pacific Ocean & is being registered by the Radiation Network.  The meter in nothern Minnesota has gone over 100 a few times this week.  This is NOT good.

The 5 monitors in Hawaii have been offline all week.  The big question is WHY? recently published pictures of corn from the State of Oregon that has mutated.  They believe its from the radiation that is coming across the Pacific.

If the radiation is doing this to corn, imagine what it is doing to us!!

If you haven't started taking Sea Kelp, I think now would be a time to do so.  I got mine from Pilgrim's Pride, I take one every day.  Is it sufficient?  That I don't know. 

I'm working on another zinger of an article on the flu shot.  Much more damming evidence has come out this week that the flu shot is ineffective & even Mayo Clinic has chimed in.  They are the number one hospital in the U.S., so this is HUGE!

Take care & have a good weekend,

Taking a new course in life.

Greetings to my readers,

A couple things I would like to touch on in this short entry......

1. The flu shot article has gone above & beyond what I expected. Over 1,500 views in a 24 hour period. Over 2,000 readers for the month of October already. Thank you!!

2. I've decided to quit the school paper. The censorship that I was getting from the advisor for the paper was too constricting. I was told that if I wanted to quote doctors that I would have to quote local doctors; even talk about the "pro" side of vaccines. Even if it went against my beliefs. Sorry, I can't do that. There is no pro side.
Have you seen the movie "A Few Good Men?" In the movie, Tom Cruise tells Jack Nicholson "I want the truth!" Jack replies, "You can't handle the truth!"

I guess the newspaper just wasn't ready for me. Thank you so much for your support, it means a great deal to me. Please pass this blog address to everyone you know that is looking for info. The quest for knowledge in this area is great & we are slowly getting the info out there.

Until next time,

Stepping up education against vaccines

Greetings everyone, Today I'm writing to you from a burb of the Twin Cities, MN. I attended a seminar by Mary Tocco earlier today & I was absolutely blown away by what she said. Pages & pages of notes plus she is sending me her notes at some point. I also learned this week that my own son decided to get vaccinated against Tetnus & get the Hepatitis A & B vaccine. Can you imagine how shocked, dismayed & hurt I was when I heard this. He told me that by not vaccinating him that I was irresponsible & could have killed him. I guess all those years I spent researching vaccines & telling my kids why we don't get vaccines was for nothing. (ha ha ha....being sarcastic here) So, I'm going to step up my research, take my power point presentation that I did a couple of years ago - revamp it & start doing talks in the general public. I'm tired of the fact that public health officials think that it is ok to push these toxins on our children, our elderly & the most vulnerable. Have a great week, Lori

A closer look at the Flu Shot

It starts in every August and goes thru Spring. Get your flu shot to prevent the flu. Does the flu shot actually prevent the flu? Do you know what is in the flu shot? Were you told these ingredients? According to Dr. Chad Rohlfsen from Des Moines, providers are supposed to fully inform about 4 things when it comes to medical procedures – the nature of the procedure, the benefits, the alternatives and the risks which includes the risk of getting the procedure and the risks of not having the procedure. Continuing the quote, if people were fully informed of all 4 things they would likely not undergo receiving the shot. According to the AMAs own policies that initialing a paragraph that all risk have been explained to me is not acceptable.
First off, you should know that the flu shot that is given out is only for one or two bugs. The manufacturers of the flu shot take a guess as to which strain will be circulating during any given season and then make a vaccine for those bugs. Not all of the bugs will be covered.
Second, each shot that is given from a multi-dose vial contains 25 mcg of mercury. According to EPA standards, a person shouldn’t receive more than 0.1 mcg per kilogram of body weight, this is 2.2 lbs. So following this formula, you would have to weigh at least 550 lbs. to get this much mercury in one shot. The mercury is used as a preservative and an adjuvant to boost the bodies immune response to the flu injection.
The Iowa Department of Health says that everyone from the age of 6 months and up should get the flu shot. But, according to the insert that comes with the flu shot, receipients should not be younger than four years old as there is evidence of diminished immune response in this age group. Also, there is not a dosage recommendation for those under the age of four.
Some other dangers of the flu shot are that studies haven’t been to know whether or not the flu shot will cause fetal harm or if it will affect a woman’s reproduction capacity. It should only be given if the need is clear.
In nursing moms, it’s unknown if the flu shot will be in the milk that the mother produces.
We also hear that the elderly population should get the flu shot especially. But according to the insert, the antibody response is lower in people who are 65 and older. A lower antibody response means that the body isn’t producing antibodies that would normally be seen.
Lets take a closer look at the mercury that is in the shot. Dr. Hugh Fudenberg did a study on the flu shots that were given between 1970 and 1980. According to this study, if you received fives times in a row, you were 10 times more likely to get Alzheimer’s. The mercury builds up in the brain and cause cognitive problems.
Dr. Boyd Haley, professor and chair of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky at Lexington did extensive research relating to mercury toxicity and the brain. His research established a connection between repeated mercury exposure and Alzheimer’s. When an autopsy was done on Alzheimer’s patients it was found that they heavy metals from vaccines had accumulated in the brain.
Dr. Mayer Eisenstein of Home First Clinics in the suburbs of Chicago, says that the flu shot is the biggest hoax ever perpetuated on the American public. It has never been proven to work. 75% of doctors don’t get it. Dr. Eisenstein says the best way to prevent the flu is to take lots of Vitamin D3. At least 10,000 IU daily. This may seem like a lot but in reality its on 2 or 3 mcg.
According to a clinical trial done by Mitsuyoshi Urashima done at the Division of Molecular Epidemiology in Tokyo, it was found that Vitamin D3 was 800% more effective at preventing the flu than the flu shot. Also revealed in this study was that the intake of Vitamin D3 reduced asthma symptoms.
The 1976 flu shots were a fiasco. More people died from the shots than from the actual flu itself. The 2009 Swine Flu pandemic was the same way, more people died from getting the flu shot than from the swine flu itself.
According to Peter Doshi , who had a report published in the British Medical Journal in December of 2005, only 18 deaths were attributed to the flu. The CDC lumps Flu and pneumonia deaths into one category because they assume if someone dies from pneumonia they got pneumonia after getting the flu. This is simply not true.
Doshi continues that using the CDCs own data, between the years of 1979 and 2001, the average death rate from the flu was 1,348 not the astounding figure of 36,000 deaths.
Using the CDCs own data for years between 1976 & 2002, the death rate from the flu has actually gone up since the wide spread use of the flu vaccine.
Lets take a closer look at some of the other flu shot ingredients –
Nonylphenol - Nonylphenol (NP) is used as antioxidant and plasticizer in some plastic products. After the discovery of its endocrine-disrupting potential, concern over human exposure to this chemical has increased.
Ethoxylate - Ethoxylated fatty alcohols are often converted to the organosulfate. A well known example is sodium laureth sulfate, a foaming agent in shampoos and toothpastes, as well as an industrial detergent.
Polymyxin - a bacteriostatic and bactericidal antibiotic, toxicity is low but there is sometimes damage to kidney and nerve cells.
Neomycin - is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body, Neomycin can harm your kidneys, and this effect is increased when you also use certain other medicines harmful to the kidneys as said by
Beta-propiolactone – According to the EPA No information is available on the chronic (long-term), reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of beta-propiolactone in humans. No information is available on the chronic health effects of beta-propiolactone in humans.
Egg proteins – many people have a high allergy level to eggs, which can vary from a mild reaction to life threatening.
If you go into a doctors office and they want you to get a flu shot, carry with you a document that says they will be liable for any and all reactions you may have by receiving the flu shot. 99.9% of doctors will not sign it.

The Truth is coming out!


As the Labor Day weekend approaches, I came across this article while just surfing & not really looking for anything in particular.

At Last! Government Documents Locked Up for 30 Years Proving This Vaccine Unsafe Finally Revealed

The people who have been fighting against the vaccine campaign by the CDC, FDA, WHO & now Bill Gates are showing - Hey, we were right.

I'm heading to NE Iowa for a family reunion this weekend.

Have a safe weekend,

No shots, no school - NOT TRUE!


I pray that everyone is having restful weekend. Its hard to believe that it is August & almost time to head back to school. My daughter heads back to high school on Thursday & then we both start college on the 23rd. Its hard to believe that she'll be a senior this fall.

We hear the mantra every year, No shot-no school. The school systems & doctors fail to inform parents on their rights for opting out of vaccines for their kids. Many states like Washington, New Jersey & New York are trying to make it harder for parents to utitlize their rights as a parent & opt their kids out of the schools mandate.

Washington - You have to have a doctor sign on off on your religious exemption.

New York - a lawyer from the school system will grill you as to your religious beliefs against vaccinations. (search youtube videos, there are many videos that are nightmares on this)

New Jersey - Making it harder for parents who choose the religious exemption route also.

Currently there are only 2 states that only allow medical exemptions - West Virginia & Mississippi. There are parents in both states who are working hard to get another form of exemption allowed in their state. In the state of Mississippi, they believe its against the constitution to have a religious exemption.

There are 21 states that allow philosophical, religious & medical exemptions. A philosophical exemption means you personally believe that vaccines are wrong & do NOT want your child injected with toxic vaccines. Philosophical exemptions can thrown out at the drop of a hat if the lawmakers decide to disallow this form of exemption from vaccines. Its better to go with a religious exemption

There are 27 states that only have religious & medical exemptions. Many people will say "Our church doesn't say that vaccines are wrong." You do NOT have to belong to a religious organization that believes vaccines are wrong. You can a personal religious belief that you shouldn't inject vaccines into your body. Where is this "religious belief" in the bible? Lets start with Lev. 11, unclean animals, which ones we can eat & which ones we can't. Take a look at the ingredients in the vaccines themselves -

You can see all the different kinds of animal cells that in them - all unclean. There is your first religious exemption.

Your 2nd one is that a lot of vaccines contain aborted fetus cells. If you believe that life begins at conception & God tells us in the bible that he knew us before he formed us in the womb, then this is your 2nd religious objection. This website shows which vaccines contain aborted fetus cells -

Here is a map that shows the different exemptions in which states, something to take into consideration if you are moving from one state to another -

Many school nurses may provide you with paperwork to opt out if ask for it OR they may tell you they don't know about the exemption for your particular state. I've had the latter told to me & I had to show her the paperwork after I printed it off. Here is a link to a website that has the paperwork for all the state plus a few countries -

If you decide not to vaccinate from the birth of your child to now, many doctors will give you a sheet to sign. This sheet basically is telling the parent that you know the "risks" you are putting your child under by NOT vaccinating them. Don't sign it, as you are NOT putting your child at risk. If you are "forced" to sign the form, then put "under duress or coercion" you are signing the form.

If your doctor presents you with "his" form, then present this one to him/her.

No doctor will sign it as they can't guarantee anything.

Know your rights as a parent, know the laws for your state & be prepared to defend your decision for not vaccinating.

Many of you are saying, why not just homeschool? Many states require homeschooled kids to be up to date on their vaccinations also. If you decide to go this route, make sure you have your exemptions in place. Check with the homeschool director for your school district, they can tell you whether or not this is the case for your state or school district.

Have a good weekend & a great week.

Until next time,

Long overdue investigation into the Fukushima disaster


As I take a break from cleaning, I was taking a look at my favorite forum & came across a thread talking an investigation into the Fukushima disaster.

Here's a short quote from the article -

"the accident was the result of collusion between the government, the regulators and TEPCO, and the lack of governance by said parties. They effectively betrayed the nation’s right to be safe from nuclear accidents.” The report also said that the possibility an earthquake played a major role in the meltdown, long before the allegedly “unprecedented” tsunami knocked out power supplies could not be ruled out."

Hmmm, very interesting.

Until next time,

Another record has been set.......


I've watched my blog statistics very closely the past few days with great anticipation. Last month arecord was set with more than doubling the readership over the past year. This month a readership record was broken. In March of last year, the highest number of views was 530. This month, the number of views for the month of July was 717.

This is very inspiring for me.

I want to thank all of you for your support, your spreading of the word that this blog is here & for the linking. You the reader help make this possible.

Whats really in those chicken nuggets?


I'm sitting in my favorite chair watching the gymnastics portion of the Olympics. I'm usually not a big sports fan but during the olympics I watch the gymnastics, womens diving, rhythmic gymnastics & the equestrian portion.

Earlier this year the "pink slime" debacle hit the news. Finely textured beef that was made from tendons & other undesirable parts of a cow to be put into our ground beef. Its been in there for years but just came into the spot light this year. This debacle has been blamed for many meat processing plants closing & jobs lost. My husband just went thru a 5 month period of unemployment so I don't wish that on anyone but I don't agree with the "pink slime" being added into our food. Ground beef should be just that - ground beef, from the part of the cow it should be coming from.

At the same time, another scandal came out that was quickly buried & you have to remind people about it. Chicken nuggets......these are a popular item that are served at McDonald's & in school lunches. I USED to buy them as a quick dinner once in awhile BUT after hearing about this, I threw the rest of them away.

Lets take a look at some of the ingredients -

Sodium Phosphates: Used in some products as a laxative, but is mainly used as a texturizer and emulsifier which stops all the nasty oils from separating within the nugget.

Dimethylpolysiloxane: this is an "antifoaming agent" that is an oil derivative made from silicon. It keeps the fryers from foaming up & boiling over. It's also put in shampoos & used in the making of contact lenses.

TBHQ: An alarming ingredient. A derivative of petroleum. The same stuff you put in your car. It'sprayed on the nugget directly or into the box to preserve freshness. It is also a form of butane-lighter fluid. Bcause a single gram of TBHQ can cause "nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse," so they must not use to much of it Eating 5 grams of TBHQ can kill.

Hydrogenated Soybean Oil: If you are at all concerned about yours or your family's health, you should avoid any product that contains hydrogenated or even worse partially hydrogenated (trans fat) oils. Thats right, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils are trans fat. Think they removed trans fat from our foods, think again. (I'm looking into this for a future blog article)

Sodium Aluminum Phosphate: Is a new product to the food industry and hasn't been thoroughly tested. Although aluminum has been widely researched to cause Alzheimers and dementia. Sodium aluminum phosphate is also used in eye drops & pesticides.

Modified Food Starch: This is cornstarch that has been chemically altered & added to the nugget to help glue everything together.

Autolyzed Yeast Extract: Is a less expensive form of MSG. MSG is that nasty addictive stuff that keeps you coming back for more and has been reported to cause numerous health concerns such as severe allergies, cancer & heart disease.

Ready to dive into some chicken nuggets? Run away as fast as you can.

Until next time,

It's gone!!


I went into that Walgreens store this morning to do some work. I checked to see if that sign was still out front & it was gone, vanished. I silently laughed to myself & whispered "yes".

There were 2 managers on duty that usually come over & talk to me whenever I come in to do my work, this time they avoided me like the plague. I guess I raised too much of stink for them.

2 points for parents & minus 2 point for a big company.

Required? I don't think so......


I hope that where ever you may be reading this blog from, you are cool, well hydrated & having a wonderful day.

I went to our local Walgreens store today to pick up a ocuple of things & this sign greeted me just before I walked in -

Required? Excuse me, where in the State of Iowa law does it say that vaccines are required? We have a little thing called exemptions. In Iowa, we have religious & medical. I approached the assistant store manager & he said he has nothing to do with that, it was pharmacy. The pharmacy people were busy so I sent them an email via their website informing them of their mistake in this signage & telling them about the exemptions available in Iowa & other states along with a link to the website where appropriate paperwork can be printed off.

The link to a website that has the paperwork for the state & some countries is here -

Until next time, stay cool.


P.S. A link to the picture was sent to the Robert Scott Bell show, he talked about it in Wednesdays show in the 2nd hour. Here is a link to the archive.

Thank you OSHA


As I was doing some research for a thread for a forum that I hang out on that was talking about a wife of a forum poster in which Wal-Mart was trying to require his wife to get the flu shot. Wal-Mart can NOT require a worker to get the flu shot. They can recommend it but have to make reasonable accomodations for an employee's religious beliefs. (one way to opt out) But in the process of finding info to help this gentleman, I came across a form that is needed for those in the health care field.

Many nursing homes, clinics, hospitals, etc. require their workers to get the Hep B shot. Many workers wish they could opt out of it. I found a form OSHAs website that lets an employee opt out of the vaccine, knowing the "risk" they are putting themselves in & that they can get the shot at a future time.

Here is the link to that form -

Dr. Sherry Tenpenny has this form on her website & adds these words to what employers are trying to do.

"Some employers have tried to add language to the consent form that relieves them from responsibility in the event that an adverse reaction occurs that is related to the vaccine."

An employer wants to require you to get the vaccine but if you have an adverse reaction to the vaccine, oh well, we're not going to do anything about it.


Be sure to pass this info onto your friends & family. Anyone you know who is trying to get around the Hep B vaccine in the workplace. I'll be making copies of this form & putting in the nursing wing of the college when I go back next month. >evil giggling<

Until next time,

More on Fukushima


As I sit in my recliner on medical leave from work, I was doing some research on Fukushima. I came across a few interesting articles regarding Fukushima & how its affecting our environment.

Its pretty scary stuff & you really have to wonder why in the world this information is being hidden from us.

Until next time, stay cool.

Obamacare - Is it a good thing?

Greetings from hot & steamy Memphis, TN!

Myself, my daughter & 2 other teens are at the tall end of our 17 day adventure around central & the eastern part of the U.S. They are telling residents of Memphis not to go out if they don't have to because of the record setting temps. The a/c went out at the first hotel we were going to stay at, so we had to switch to another one.

Obamacare made the headlines this week that it was constitutional to require Americans to have health insurance. How is this going to work for those that are just barely getting by? How are they going to enforce it? When I filed our state income taxes this year, one of the questions that they asked was if my children had health insurance. They are putting plans into place to ensure every American has coverage.

Is Obamacare really a good thing? Many think it is. Many know it isn't. What are the hidden dangers of Obamacare? There are at least 50 of them. Here is a link to a website that shows SOME of the hidden dangers of Obamacare.

Remember, these are just SOME of the hidden dangers, who else knows what is in there. I was asked today what I thought of Obamacare, I said its not a good thing & needs to be done away with. Lets hope & pray that we get a president that will throw it out on its ears before it goes into affect in 2014.

Planning on being home by July 4th for our local celebration & a private showing of fireworks out in the middle of nowheresville later in the evening.

Stay cool my friends,

Pneumonia, Spider bites & Psoriasis


As I sit at my cousins house in Waterloo, IA, I'm reflecting back on how this summer has gone so far. The semester finished almost 6 weeks ago & I haven't gotten a fraction done of what I've wanted to get done by now.

On the last day of the semester, that evening I had to take my daughter to the ER because she had been sick since the night before & was severely dehydrated because she couldn't keep anything down. After about 2 hours, they released her with anti-nausea meds & instructions to drink & eat as she was able. The next morning, she had a follow up visit with her pediatrician & everything seemed to be fine. I got a call from him a couple of hours later, he looked at her chest x-ray & saw that pneumonia was starting to develop so he started her on anti-biotics. It was called Azithromax. It was in the news a few days later as causing heart problems in patients with heart disease. Great......she doesn't have this problem but it makes you wonder if doctors stop & think about what they are prescribing.

That night we were back in the ER for another problem - a spider bite. We have a few spiders in our house & every once in awhile they show up. This one bit her on the back of her left shoulder. It was very painful for her. So after icing & calamine lotion, I took her in. They said since it was swelling nor was she was breaking out in hives, she would be fine. They gave her a dosage of Benadryl & sent her home. This was a Thursday evening.

On Sunday evening, she started to break out in a rash. We weren't quite sure what we were dealing with so I used calamine lotion to help with the itching & Aveeno baths. By Wednesday she was broke out head to toe with this rash - back to the doctor. He thought she was allergic to the Azithromax to he put in her chart an allergy to it. 10 days later, the rash continued to get worse. He finally sent her to a dermatologist. The dermatologist walked in, took one look at Hannah & told her it was psoriasis. She was started on "light box" treatments right away to try to get rid of it. A light box is basically a tanning bed that is regulated by the FDA & she isn't in it nearly as long.

Fortunately, a from eastern Tennessee called me up & said I may want to check into an herbal rememdy from GNC called Red Clover. That the psoriasis may be her bodies way of clearing out the toxin from the spider bite. After doing a bit of research, I concurred & bought it. Hannah is now 60% clear on the psoriasis. She is having some scarring from where it was really bad. She hasn't been able to go back to work because it is so itchy & painful at times in the areas where it is really thick. (her legs & torso)

We preparing to take a road trip here in about 10 days, I pray that while we are gone she heals from her psoriasis. We are covering 8 cities in 17 days. Some cities we are only going to be there a few hours visiting friends & other places we are going to be there a few days.

Until next time, have a good weekend.....

Fukushima - A disaster waiting to happen


As I was doing some surfing while on hold with many people today I came across this article regarding the Fukushima dangers. One of our senators has been there & describes the situation as a "radiation apocalypse" waiting to happen.

I've said before we are NOT being told the whole story. And this just adds to that proof, we aren't.

Here are the links -

Enjoy the rest of your week,

As summer begins......

Greetings to my faithful readers, My grandmother passed away on April 21st. The nursing home called me & told me she had taken a turn for the worse & to head up there if I could. (2 hr. drive) I asked what her vitals were so I knew if I had time or not. They told me to hold on & they would check. The nurse came back online a few minutes later & told me she had passed. I am so thankful that I got hospice involved when I did. I wished I hadn't waited so long as they could have made her last few months better rather then her suffering the way she did. Her funeral was a week ago today & I'm still mourning in my own way. I have to be strong for my daughter & be there for my family. But at night, the time of being strong ends & the tears come. I have quite a few articles I'm planning on writing over the summer. A couple of them are very involved & will require some in depth research. If any of you would like to shoot me some ideas of what YOU would like to see, please leave your ideas in the comment section & I'll see what I can do. My husband gave me an idea this morning about becoming a health coach. I'm thinking about it but not sure if I'm ready yet. Maybe after another semester of writing & more research, I can start exploring that path. Until next time, Lori

A study the government is afraid to do

Greetings everyone, I have one final left & then the semester is over. I will be so thankful. It has been a very stressful 15 weeks. My grandmother passed away this past Saturday. She had advanced stage dementia so this was a blessing in disguise. Her visitation is on the 29th with the funeral on the 30th & my last final is the 2nd. I was just doing some surfing tonight while relaxing & watching a movie & came across this article. The government is afraid to do this study on kids. Infant Monkeys Given Standard Doses of Vaccines Develop Autism Symptoms Most of us knew this already right? How long will it be before big pharma suppresses this study? Have a good weekend! Lori

The Donald says Vaccine cause Autism

Greetings everyone,

Donald Trump says that vaccine cause Autism. Maybe they will finally look into what is causing autism.

WooHoo! A big boost for the anti-vaccine community.

The semester ends on April 26th. I have several big article ideas that I'm theorizing on.

My grandmother who lost her husband just over a year ago has been in hospice since March 23rd. She is on a few different sedatives to try to keep her calm. I've suggested natural ways but her doctor has over ruled me so there isn't much I can do. At this point, I'm waiting for the dreaded phone call.

Until next time,

March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

Many students don’t think about Multiple Sclerosis when they are attending college. Many see themselves as invincible others see their vulnerabilities. But the truth of the matter is that MS can hit at any age but is most commonly diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. It affects women more often than men.

MS is when the sheath covering the nerve is damaged. This can cause signals to slow down or stop. This damage is caused by inflammation which is when the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system. This can occur anywhere along the nervous system. From the brain to the spinal cord right down to the nerve endings themselves.

MS can affect anyone but those most commonly affected are people who live further from the equator. Those who live north of the 37th parallel get less sunlight than those who live south of this line. This line is along the North Carolina northern border that goes straight across the U.S.

A study done on a patient by Dr. David Brownstein showed that increasing a patients Vitamin D3 intake, a patient was able to reduce her dependence on a wheelchair, her pain from the symptoms of MS were greatly decreased and she was able to go back to work full time.

Episodes of MS attacks can last for hours, days, weeks or even months. The severity of these attacks can vary as long as the attacks vary. These attacks can alternate with periods of no symptoms.

Things like fever, stress and hot baths can trigger symptoms. Even when a person has no symptoms, their disease can continue to get worse.

Since MS attacks the nervous symptoms, it affects different parts of the body differently. The way MS attacks the muscular system is loss of balance, loss of coordination, tremors in the legs, numbness/tingling in the legs, problems with walking.

The excretatory system is affected with urine and stool leakage. The eyes are affected with double vision, loss of vision and rapid eye movements.

The brain and nervous system is affected with decreased attention span, depression, problems with dizziness and balance, problems with reasoning and solving problems, problems with memory loss and judgement. There is hearing loss associated with MS as well.

Since MS can look like other nervous system disease, these by can be ruled out by tests that are ordered by your doctor. Your doctor may suspect MS if you have two separate areas of your nervous system that are affected at the same time. This may included reflexes that are abnormal, loss of sensation in more than one part of your body or your ability to move one part of your body is decreased.

In your eyes, your vision field is decreased, the pupils have abnormal reflexes, you have a problem with the inside part of your eye or when your eye moves it triggers rapid eye movements.

Some other tests that are used to diagnose MS are a spinal tap and an MRI.

There no known cures for MS at this time. There are treatments to slow the progression of the disease and to relive the symptoms. These include certain drugs, physical therapy, good exercise and a healthy diet.

Guest Blog Entry - Accupuncture

Greetings everyone,

This time we will hear from a guest that contacted me regarding doing guest blog entries for me.

I've looked her article over & I think it looks pretty good. Please leave a comment with your thoughts as well.


People who suffer from chronic illness, such as Mesothelioma cancer or other forms of disease often choose to undergo extensive medical treatments to cure the disease; those whose disease was caught early enough are given a second chance at life. However, treatment for chronic illness is often difficult on the body, mind and emotions and is known to cause pain at times. There are ways that patients suffering from chronic illness can manage their pain; sometimes even make it go away completely. 

One way to manage pain from chronic illness is with the ancient remedy of acupuncture. Acupuncture is something that commonly makes patients a little nervous; the idea of placing so many needles into their body is terrifying for some, especially those with fear of needles. However, the art of acupuncture is not painful. In fact, few who have tried it were dissatisfied with the experience, according to “The Spirit Gate.” It is actually quite relaxing and rejuvenating, which is one way that it helps with pain from chronic illness. The National Institute of Health recognizes acupuncture as a complementary way to treat pain from chronic illness and even from chemotherapy. 

Acupuncture is proven to help with the management of conditions such as alcoholism, the nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy for cancer patients, sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis, irritable bowel syndrome and even stroke rehabilitation. One of the benefits of acupuncture is that it can be used by patients who are taking medication to treat disease and those that are undergoing other medical treatments. However, it is imperative your doctor knows you are receiving acupuncture. 

While it is not known exactly how and why acupuncture works, scientists suspect that the working of acupuncture is due to the needling. Tiny, solid needles are placed at points in the skin while the patient lies still. For those suffering a chronic illness or pain that is isolated to one spot, needles are placed in locations that coordinate with that location and the needles send signals to the brain and spinal cord. The brain then transmits signals that alleviate pain by increasing a person’s pain threshold, which doctors and scientists believe is the reason acupuncture works for people suffering chronic pain. In addition, it also increases blood flow and body temperature and reduces cholesterol levels, which promote overall health for any person’s body. 

Anyone suffering from chronic pain can alleviate that pain with acupuncture; anyone considering acupuncture should speak with their doctor to discuss treatment options and how to proceed in managing pain.

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Greetings everyone,

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. This is a topic that most people don't want to talk about as some find it a bit embarrassing because of the part of anatomy we are talking about and what is done to find the cancer.

The average age of a person when its first discovered is 65. Its recommended that a person starts screening for colon cancer when they turn the age of 50 unless there is a family history, then you start sooner. When the cancer is discovered, usually in the later stages of like stage 3 or 4, the disease is much harder to treat or may be even incurable.

There are 3 main types of testing to check for colon cancer.

The first one is a digital rectal exam. This is when a doctor inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into the lower part of the rectum to feel for lumps or anything else that seems unusual. In women, the vagina may also be examined. (I know many of you are cringing right now).

The 2nd type of test is Proctoscopy: This is exam of the rectum using a proctoscope, inserted into the rectum. It is a thin, tube-like instrument with a light and a lens for viewing. It may also have a tool to remove tissue to be checked under a microscope for signs of disease.

Another test is Colonoscopy: This is a procedure to look inside the rectum and colon for polyps (small pieces of bulging tissue), abnormal areas, or cancer. The colonoscope is a thin, tube-like instrument with a light and a lens for viewing. It may also have a tool to remove polyps or tissue samples, which are checked under a microscope for signs of cancer.

The difference between a proctoscope and a colonoscopy is that a proctoscope is an office procedure that doesn't require sedation and you can return to normal activities that day. A colonoscopy requires sedation, 2-3 hours recovery time and then a driver to take you home. The proctoscope only looks at 20-30 percent of your colon where as the colonoscopy examines the entire colon.

If any polyps are removed, they will examined under a microscope for disease.

Are there ways to avoid colon cancer? There are no 100% ways but there are ways to reduce your risk of getting it.

1. Get your screenings regularly. If the polyps are removed early, this can help them turning into cancer and the cancer being discovered at a later stage when it will be harder to treat or cured.

2. Cut down on red meat. It is high in fat content. Instead concentrate on foods that are high in fiber to keep things "moving along."

3. Cut down on the hard stuff. People who drank more than 8 hard liquor drinks per week had a 2.5 times more of a chance to get colon cancer than the non-drinker. But wine is a different story, those who drank wine were 46% less likely to get cancer. Why? One word - antioxidants.

4. Take Vit. D3, the sunshine vitamin. The higher your Vit. D3 level in your body, the less likely you are to get some types of cancer. 10,000 IU daily is a good number to start with. Another bonus - you are less likely to get sick when you are taking Vit. D3.

5. Get moving! Obesity not only increases your risk of colon cancer but other types of cancer. Cut back on your caloric intake and take a brisk 30 minute walk after dinner. Grab your favorite four legged friend to go with you, I'm sure he/she will enjoy the walk as much as you do.

Have a good week!

February is Heart Month

Greetings everyone,

I know its the end of February but I thought it would be important to put this info out there.

February is heart month. With cardiovascular disease quickly becoming the #1 killer of women in the U.S., we need to take a look at what we can do to make our lives more heart healthy.

Nicole offers clients who come into the Hy-Vee grocery store ways to change their diet & their lifestyle. 30% of the clients that Nicole helps have some sort of heart disease. They are looking to reduce their cholesterol naturally without medications. Some have diabetes also.

Nicole recommends these kinds of foods to avoid cardiovascular disease.

Fiber - Fruits & Vegetables along with whole wheat products

Potassium - dark, green fruits & vegetables

Folate - Dark green produce

Most people don't get the 2-3 servings per week of fatty fish. You can get your Omega-3 from which helps fight inflammation. You can also get Omega-3 from flaxseed oil.

If a person has cardiovascular disease, she has the following recommendations.

Know your numbers so that you have a starting point. These numbers would include your weight, blood pressure, sugar levels & cholesterol numbers. She says to challenge yourself to improve these numbers daily by making small changes in your life.

Exercise will improve your good cholesterol. Adding a fish oil will improve your triglycerides. Increasing your consumption of fruits & veggies, whole grain products, oats & beans will help your health if you already have heart disease.

You can also help improve your dietary lifestyle by scheduling a grocery store tour with a dietician at your local grocery store if they offer this service. This may be a complimentary service. This will help you make the correct food choices instead of some bad food choices you are currently making.

Til next time,

Into the Lions Den - Again......

Greetings everyone,

There is a Walgreens just a few blocks from my house. I drive by it just about every day. I watch the marquee out front to see what they are advertising when I'm sitting at the stop light.

The other day I saw that they were advertising the Shingles shot. I stopped by & got the insert that came with the shot. The insert is about 30 inches long & 12 inches wide on both sides. It took about 2 hours to read thru it & highlight the important stuff. One of the side affects of the shingles vaccine is shingles, imagine that. The Shingles vaccine is also a live virus which means it can shed. The insert warns that people getting this vaccine should avoid being around pregnant women & children after getting this shot. Hmmm, I wonder how many recipients have been told this & still go out in public after getting it.

Today when I was out with my daughter, I stopped by & saw that they were also advertising the Whooping Cough vaccine. When I went into to talk to the pharmacist, she said that it was a combination shot TDaP & she only had one vial so she had to keep the insert BUT she gave me the phone number for Glaxo Smith Kline so that I could call up the company & get the insert directly from them. I'm also going to ask for the inserts for all the rest of their vaccines too to read thru them.

The pharmacist asked why I wanted it. I told her that I was an independent researcher on the dangers of vaccines. She asked what I had found out so far. I gave her the tip of the iceberg & she was very surprised about what I had found out so far. (was she really or just covering up for what she really knew?)

I hope to be making a few phone calls on Monday. Not only to Glaxo Smith but also Merck, Sanofir & any other manufacturers that are willing to send me what I would like. :)

Have a great week,

It's back ......with a vengeance


Friday afternoon I visited my chiropractor, I picked up a few items & then went home. Monday afternoon I went to physical therapist to get a treatment for my vertigo. I've spent 90% of my time since Friday afternoon either laying on the couch or in bed.

I've missed 3 days of classes at the campus, so I can imagine my profs are NOT happy with me at the moment.

I'm hoping to get back on campus Friday for at least one of my classes.

Just when I thought I had my life back, it came back with a vengeance. Not sure how much longer this is going to go on but I'm going to try to get back with my chiro by Monday & my physical therapist as soon as she can get me in.

Gotta love it......Have a good weekend,

Destressing Easily


I hope today finds you in well health. I'm currently taking a class at the local college called Creative Writing. One of the things we are supposed to do for this class is keep a journal. I really haven't done any journal writing since junior high & all of my journals, stories & poems were all thrown out when my grandmothers house was cleaned out.

Things have been a bit stressful the last couple of weeks around here. So, one night when I was too stressed out to sleep, I found a notebook & a pen & just started to write. I wrote 6 pages before I was finally tired enough to get some sleep.

So another way that is easy & cheap, just write out your feelings on paper. You don't have to show it anyone else, it can be just for your eyes only.

Have a good week,

Dangers of Pork


I was surfing the net tonight & came across this article tonight. I thought it fit in perfectly with my To Eat or Not to Eat article I wrote last year.

A couple of highlights from the article are as follows -

PIGS are SCAVENGERS and will eat ANY kind of food, INCLUDING dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, excreta including their own, garbage, and other pigs.

There are many diseases carried from swine to man, particularly parasite infestations.

Influenza (flu) is one of the most famous illnesses which pigs share with humans. This illness is harbored in the lungs of pigs during the summer months and tends to affect pigs and humans in the cooler months. Sausage contains bits of pigs' lungs, so those who eat pork sausage tend to suffer more during epidemics of influenza.

The human swine flu outbreak continues to grow...
The outbreak of disease in people caused by a new influenza virus of swine origin continues to grow in the United States and internationally. Today, CDC reports additional confirmed human infections, hospitalizations and the nation's first fatality from this outbreak. The more recent illnesses and the reported death suggest that a pattern of more severe illness associated with this virus may be emerging in the U.S. Most people will not have immunity to this new virus and, as it continues to spread, more cases, more hospitalizations and more deaths are expected in the coming days and weeks.

Have a good week,

Vertigo free & LOVING it!!!


As I type this I'm celebrating! I haven't had a vertigo attack - major or minor in almost 3 months!

As many of faithful followers know I fought with vertigo for over 2 1/2 years. I was going to physical therapy every 4-6 weeks to keep it in check so that I didn't get an attack when I was at school or I was out in the field working.

I'm sure many of you are asking what have I done differently that I no longer have this problem. Well, I'm going to contribute it to a few different factors.

1. Destress - I've cut back on my stress. I don't let things get to me as easily as I used to & if I do get upset, I try to keep it short lived. Let it out & then get back on track. My daughter & her boyfriend aren't quite sure what to think about this.

2. Change in my diet - Cutting back on sugars & other toxins in my life. As I said in an earlier post, mercury is in many food & may contribute to vertigo. I'm still doing research into this & hope to post more on this at a future date.

3. Exercise - This isn't what you think it is. I've looked back at when I first got vertigo & what I've changed over the last few months, there is one change that I've done that I think has a made a HUGE change in my life. I was an avid roller skater prior to my foot surgery in April of 2008. I didn't start skating again until the end of October. Just think the gentle loops that you are doing as you are going around the rink with an occasional quick loop if you are goofing off, or smaller loops if you are doing the "Hokey Pokey" around the middle loop of the rink. If you aren't that good at dodgeball or some of your kids' friends have it in for them, I would advise you to avoid this activity. It may sound harmless enough but if you are skating 15-20 mph to avoid getting hit you may get hit hard with a nerf ball (simple physics here) or you may wipe out & do more harm than good.

4. More sleep - I've been working at getting more sleep. I used to survive on catnaps if I had a bunch of work to do in a one week period or a lot school work to do in the same week. So I try to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep per night.

5. More me time - I used to think that I was selfish if I took time for myself. But now I give myself permission to take time for myself. Whether its to read, watch some TV, take a drive thru a local state park or do some needlework.

I head back to school on the 9th. In a way I'm looking forward to going back & in another way I wish I had another week of break to get more things done around the house.

Until next time, have a good week.
