Iodine Should Replace Antibiotics

Eventually antibiotics are going to be seen as one of the worst things to ever come out of pharmaceutical science because in the end, they have made us only weaker in the face of ever increasingly strong super bugs that are resistant to all the antibiotics doctors have at their disposal.

When we look at how deep the rabbit hole goes with antibiotics, we will get sick in our souls. Antibiotics have fulfilled their anti–biotic anti-life role leaving a long trail of death and suffering in the wake of their use.

Diseases include measles, scarlet fever, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, pneumonia, influenza, whooping cough, diphtheria and polio. All were in decline for several decades before the introduction of antibiotics or vaccines – Dr. Lawrence Wilson.

Genetically Modified Foods - GMO

The older I get, the more I understand there are no short-cuts in this world, and those that attempt them are doing us no favors. In Genesis 3, we can see where short-cuts got us – living under a curse. And man, in his arrogance, continues attempts to be master over God’s creation, instead of humbly obeying, serving as a good steward.

We’re reaching a critical point in this world that food itself has become “biological pollution” fully capable of spreading and interbreeding, further destroying our food supplies. The following article by Dr. Martha Herbert, one of my son’s doctors, provides compelling reasons as to why GMO-foods are a danger that must be stopped. Dr. Herbert has been sounding the alarm on GMO-foods since 1999. It is a cause well worth everyone’s time and consideration, protesting Cargill and Monsanto’s continuing destruction of our food supply.

Does Organic Mean Organic?

Does organic mean organic? No.

When you were little and had a boo-boo, your mother applied a Band-aid, even when there wasn’t any blood, just to make you feel better. But at some point, the Band-aid had to be removed.

I preferred s-l-o-w-l-y easing the Band-aid free of the skin, one hair at a time. The removal sounded something like, “Ow……….. ow………….. ow………. ow………. ow………..”.

There was always some do-gooder Buttinsky who came along, thinking they were being helpful, grabbing and RIPPING the Band-Aid off along with any remaining hair and skin – faster than I could scream, “ow.ow.ow.ow.ow.owowowowowow, OW!”

My quick answer, “No” to the question, “Does organic mean organic” was me RIPPING ahead to the point where we can begin the healing process.

You know all those extra miles you drove to that special little hole-in-the-wall hippie-run health-food store, in search of foods that you hoped would fool your family into thinking they weren’t losing a yummy pesticide-filled cereal…or yogurt…or tortillas chips……but instead, replacing the “bad” with a “good” organic because, well, it said so, right on the box –

Organic does not mean that every single ingredient has to be organic.

Deception of Diabetes

This is an important article to read if any one of these apply:

  • You’ve ever received a vaccination
  • Are currently taking medication
  • Children taking medication (anti-depressants, ADD, ADHD, anxiety, psychotropic meds such as Abilify, Geodon, Seroquel, Risperdol, etc.)
  • Eat corn, soy, canola oils
  • Do not eat grass-fed animal meat
  • Do not eat coconut oil or butter from grass-fed dairy
  • Do not consume whole-fat grass-fed dairy products
  • Have a low-fat diet

Well, I guess that covers just about everybody in America. This is a large article which will take some thought and time to wade through.

Give me your poor...

“Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses…..”

…and watch me ruin their health.

Sitting cross-legged at my maternal grandparent’s feet during family gatherings, I never tired of hearing them recount their “Coming to America” experiences. My favorite scene was their description of standing at the feet of Lady Liberty, while my grandfather read “Emma Lazarus poem, The New Colossus. Unfortunately, the meaning of both poem and “Lady Enlightenment”, her proper name, are now controversial, with some contending she was never designed as a welcome mat.

At the time my grandparents arrived, America was courting people exactly like them – people who were educated, self-sufficient and would further strengthen, rather than weaken, the fabric of life. Their values and religion were not foreign, their God the same as the One worshiped by Founding Fathers. They didn’t come empty-handed, but instead, brought along one newborn baby, a few dozen neighbors and friends of the same culture and language, and together, built their new lives.

Selling Sweet Dreams

You know the dealer, the dealer is a man
With the love grass in his hand
Oh but the pusher is a monster
Good God, he’s not a natural man
The dealer for a nickel
Lord, will sell you lots of sweet dreams
Ah, but the pusher ruin your body
Lord, he’ll leave your, he’ll leave your mind to scream
-Steppenwolf, 1968

Yesterday, while running errands, I had a rare opportunity to listen to something other than kids’ books-on-tape. Scanning radio stations, I landed on NPR running an investigative piece on what the addict of 2008 looks like. According to their findings, they’re not poor, underprivileged, uneducated, black or trailer-trash white. They’re quite the opposite, often our next-door neighbors, relatives or friends, sharing the same pew on Sundays.

Clintons & Global Destruction

Ps. 49:16-20 exhorts, “Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him. Though while he lived he counted himself blessed – and men praise you when you prosper – he will join the generation of his fathers, who will never see the light of life. A man who has riches without understanding is like the beasts that perish.

This presidential election process seems more tiresome and troubling than past years. On the other hand, political email jokes I’ve received from friends, are some of the best of all time. My favorite is Hill-Billy which was guffaw-funny for a couple of minutes – long enough for me to forward it on to family and friends. After I hit the last “send”, I made the mistake of staring at it. That’s when the creepy-factor set in, sending shivers of dread up and down my spine. Maybe Imus and Beck were right when they referred to her as the anti-Christ.

Now You See It, Now You Don't

“So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake. Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts: Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs”. Exodus 7:10-12

Inulin Quietly Disappears

Many ingredients used by the food processing industry, organic, included – do NOT have to be listed on the ingredient label courtesy of our very broken FDA.

Stonyfield Farm added Inulin, a thickening agent, to its yogurts, giving them a thick, rich appearance and texture, hoping to imitate a natural process. I don’t think the gel-like texture fools too many, though.

Stonyfield Farms isn’t the only corporate food-processor trying to pull the wool over consumer eyes. Land O’Lakes and other dairies are quite fond of carrageenan, a vegetarian thickening compound extracted from seaweed. Everybody wants home-made taste and farm-fresh quality without the inconveniences of having to do it themselves.

When nutritional watchdogs got the word out to organic and consumer-protection groups that Stonyfield was adding a non-organic thickening agent, Stonyfield – marketing masters that they are – turned what could have been a debacle into a make-believe nutritional campaign:

What does it profit a man....

….to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?” Mark 8:36

Profiting at the Expense of the Environment and Human Health

Stonyfield Farm, local to New Hampshire, 80% owned by the French yogurt giant Groupe Danone, sells more than yogurt.

It’s selling the personal philosophy of its founder and CEO, Gary Hirschberg who testifies that
“..the health of future generations is good enough reasons for businesses to take care of the planet. But even a businessperson who doesn’t share this perspective can embrace green business practices simply because they’re more profitable. I believe most of us want to do the right thing.”

Stonyfield has been preaching from the environmental pulpit of earth worship for over 20 years, instructing its consumers how to better protect Mother Earth.

Recycle! Ride your bike to work! Drive a fuel-efficient car!

Vanity, vanity, Solomon cried out. Hirschberg’s worldview of doing “the right thing”, “saving” planet Earth, providing “health” via his food products to humans, sounds good on the surface, but looking a little deeper, all I see is yet another little man playing god.

Why Butter Is Better

I’m experimenting with Photoshop Elements 6, four versions newer than the version I’ve been running and using for the last half-a-dozen years. Version 6 is amazingly powerful – so much so that I’m not sure Adobe, the creator of Photoshop, has done themselves any favor. They may have just put a little too much power in this latest version, making it less user-friendly. We’ll see, but I feel as if I’m learning their package all over again, planning on teaching my 12-year-old the finer points of computer graphics and photo editing.

In the meantime, I spent some time playing with standard graphic shapes that Adobe provides, which effortlessly edit photos into shapes that would have taken me hours to manually perform. What could be better than a heart shape filled with a beauty shot of my homemade grass-fed Jersey butter!

To many, that’s probably an odd pair – heart and butter. It wasn’t that long ago that butter was rumored to have been the cause of heart disease. Nothing, however, could be farther from the truth. A body needs fat, and butter is a perfect source!

Making butter is a regular routine here in our household, for which we give thanks above for every single luscious bite. And yes, that bright, golden yellow is its real color, thanks to the high-quality of beta carotene provided by the grass the Jerseys eat.

God, the Master Chef, is good and, therefore, so is butter, straight from His hands to you.
