10 Natural Painkillers That Work As Good As Pharmaceuticals

Painkillers are one of the biggest and most expensive over-the-counter commodities. You need them for everything, from your little brother’s earache to your grandmother’s rheumatoid arthritis.

And while these medications are effective, they can leave your pockets feeling a little emptier and your health feeling a little strung out. What I mean by this, is that conventional painkillers can be destructive to other parts of the body while healing or soothing the ill part.

So what’s the solution to this? Dr. James A. Duke, author of the Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Foods says that we can almost always find a plant that has the same healing effects as a pharmaceutical without any of the risk.

Take a look at these ten all-natural pain-relieving substances.

1. Birch Leaf: The leaves from the Birch tree act much like a prescription drug called cortisone. Cortisone is used to treat endocrine disorders, arthritis, lupus, skin disease, autoimmune disorders, and more.

One of the main compounds found in Birch leaves is methyl salicylate, similar to salicylic acid used in aspirin. It is anti-spasmodic, analgesic, astringent, antifungal, diuretic, detoxifier, and it reduces damage to skin as well as enhances circulation. It is truly one of the first powerful pain relievers ever used.

2. Cherries: The presence of compounds called anthocyanins (same nutrients that give cherries their rich red color) gives cherries their pain fighting power. Continue reading

3 of The Best Health Supplements For Chemtrail Protection

A couple weeks ago I was listening to an audio recording from a website called Oraclereport.com, which was discussing a combination of things including astrology, geopolitics and weather modification. During the weather modification segment, it was said that chemtrail warfare might begin to escalate as the cabal/NWO is being defeated and is seeking to fully enact their agenda in complete desperation.  (As a side note, if you are interested in astrology, geopolitical affairs or the combination of the two, I highly recommend reading into the work of Laura Walker at Oraclereport.com)

chemtrails-search-results

“Chemtrails” trending at its highest ever in April 2016.

The timing of this is significant because according to Google Trends, the keyword search for “chemtrails” was at it’s highest ever in Google’s history in April of 2016.

The link to this picture can be seen here.

Contributing to this was musician Prince’s youtube video where he discussed chemtrails, Chuck Norris (no this ins’t a Chuck Norris joke) writing an article exposing chemtrails and Vin Diesel also exposing the darkness of chemtrails on his facebook page.

As I was listening, I began to think about ways in which people can help protect themselves against the harmful effects chemtrails can create. At the moment, there are a few health supplements I am using that I will explain a little bit more about below. Continue reading

2 Simple Steps That Will Help Open Your Third Eye

The third eye, the gate way to higher levels of consciousness, is scientifically known as the pineal gland. The pea sized and pine cone shaped gland is located at eye level in the center of the brain.

The pineal gland produces and secretes melatonin, as well as Dimethyltryptamine (DMT).

These 2 steps you can take today won’t require fasting, yay! Alkalinity is a main factor when achieving decalcification and activation of the pineal gland.

This is because the pineal gland is not isolated from the body in the blood-brain barrier system. Without the brain filtering mechanism protecting the gland, the calcification process happens easily within an acidic body. The human body functions best when it’s alkaline and an alkaline body can begin to heal the pineal gland.

When the pineal gland is active there is a pressure at the base of the brain and the forehead. You may begin to feel energy and see images unlike anything before.  Your new discoveries within these dimensions will be truly epic and I’m excited for you. There’s no reason to delay, let’s get started!

Step 1: Elimination
To fully activate the pineal gland all acid forming foods and drinks need to be eliminated.

This list of foods is highly acidic and should be avoided when concentrating on pineal gland decalcification and activation.

  • Alcohol, All Meat, All Seafood, Artificial Sweeteners: Acesulfame potassium (Sunett, Sweet One), Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet), Neotame, Saccharin (SugarTwin, Sweet’N Low), Sucralose (Splenda), Black Tea, Coffee, Dairy, Fluoride Tap Water, Fluoride Toothpaste, Pasta, Processed Chocolate, Processed Food, Refined Salt (Use Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt), Seafood, Soda, Sugar, Tabacco, White Flour

Keep in mind that this is a lifestyle change that takes inspired action for a successful transition. Three years ago I took action, but I wasn’t inspired. I didn’t want to believe that acidic foods effected my body. I ate healthy enough, but there were plenty of meals in between that were full of coffee, sugar, flour, and pasta.

Through synchronicity, I stumbled upon Hydrion pH strips and tested myself. I was in shock seeing my 5.8 pH and I committed to making a major change. The strips motivated me to keep up my new habits, especially when I craved unhealthy food. Each morning I would use the test strips and see my progress.

Now, I use the strips once a week because I’m a consistent 7.6 pH. I suggest using pH test strips so you know exactly where your pH currently is and you can track your progress.

Step 2: Consume Pineal Gland Activation Food
Eating and drinking alkaline food is easy because most fruits, green vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs, seasonings, seeds, and nuts are alkaline. When concentrating on the pineal gland follow these tips, so you can experience pineal gland activation benefits quicker.

Drink Spring Water with a 7pH or higher. The human body is up to 75% water, making water consumption a huge impact on the rate alkalinity can be achieved.

Always Choose Organic so your body is reducing the toxin buildup and not adding to it.

Drink Lemon Water and Eat Watermelon. Both fruits are extremely alkalizing and will help your body eliminate toxins more effectively.

Eat Alkaline Grains, Quinoa, Brown Rice, Millet (Sorghum), and Buckwheat Groats. These grains will add fullness to meals and maintains alkalinity.

Supplement with Vitamin K2 MK-7, a specific fermented form of Vitamin K that can be bought in it’s whole food form, unlike Vitamin K2 MK-4 which is sold synthetically. It removes calcium from where it shouldn’t be (arteries, soft tissue, pineal gland) and moves it to bones and teeth. Unlike Iodine which only removes the misplaced calcium entirely from the body.

Organic apple cider vinegar “with the mother” is a detoxifying agent and cleanses the entire digestive system. ACV also cleanses the blood in the oxidation process among many other health benefits.

Organic Unrefined Cold-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil or MCT Oil is a medium chain triglyceride that has therapeutic effects on the brain and has been proven to help epilepsy and Alzheimer’s. The fatty acids increase blood levels of ketone bodies and supply energy to brain cells. Since the pineal gland is located within the brain this is crucial.

Barley Grass, Chlorella, Spirulina, and Wheatgrass restores natural alkalinity and improves digestion within the body, among many other health benefits.

Finding organic alkaline food and supplements can be easy and affordable with these  resources in your area:

Farmers Markets are a great way to support a local farm and buy fresh seasonal produce. Before buying produce ask the person managing the farm stand if the produce is organic and what their farming practices are. Only buy from the farm stands that hold high ethical values towards their products and be picky. There are many farmers markets and don’t buy anything without asking questions. Pesticides and GMOs will only calcify your pineal gland.

pineal_gland_activationLocal CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm share. Farms sell shares of their crops at wholesale. After buying a share, once a week you receive a box of seasonal vegetables from the farm.

You directly support a local farm and receive the produce at the lowest price. Always ask the farmers if they grow organic produce and what their farming practices are. The best part about buying local is knowing exactly how your food is grown so, seize the opportunity to find out.

Local health food stores are an amazing resource to get healthy and organic food as well as answers to questions. Health food store employees are well informed and can be used as a resource. Find out when they have sales and use coupons. My local health food store has super first Thursday, meaning every first Thursday of the month everything in the store is on sale. I make my monthly trip every first Thursday and shop only on this day so, I’m always saving money.

During the winter months when my CSA farm share isn’t active I shop at Aldi, an international grocery store. This is where I buy my organic spinach, spring greens, coconut oil or milk, frozen fruit, quinoa, apple cider vinegar, and so much more. I’ve been so impressed with Aldi’s organic items. In my area, their prices can’t be beat and I find something new they offer that’s organic every time.

Thrive Market  is an organic online store that has wholesale prices. Shopping online for organic superfoods has saved me time and money. Thrive Market has better prices than my local health food store on specialty items (goji berries) and I save gas too.

There are many ways to detox and experience pineal gland activation. Meditation, experiencing nature, indirect sunlight, and kundalini yoga or more to name a few. While on your health journey, enjoy the road and forget about the destination. Please comment below your findings and ways that you’ve activated your pineal gland.

What Does Humanity Deserve? The Answer Will Have You In Tears

What is it that humanity deserves? Look at what we’ve done to this planet, to each other, to the animals and creatures that live here. Do we deserve punishment and lashings for all we’ve done? Do we deserve to perish as a species?

Love

What does humanity deserve? A fresh, new beginning. We deserve love, compassion and understanding.

Yes, I am fully aware of the many atrocities that have been committed on this planet, from the genocides, the trashing of our waters and land, the wars, the lies and falsehoods.

I am aware of the way our social systems are set up in a way to favor only the wealthiest of the wealthiest. Continue reading

The Best ENERGY Drink of Your Life

Article shared with permission from Author Jenna Barrington.

I had the urge to write about this daily habit that takes 10 minutes or less, but can have an incredible influence on you and your family’s health!

Right now in our world there are a lot of people who would love to feel better about their bodies. Studies show that a good portion of both men and women are unsatisfied with themselves or struggle with self-confidence. This is no secret, and it is apparent that as a society we are searching for better answers than painful dieting and hours in the gym. 

I was first introduced to the idea of green smoothies by Robyn Openshaw when I was a teenager.  I struggled a lot with body image during adolescence, and more than wanting to feel beautiful I also wanted to feel healthy. So I was always looking for the secrets to having a body I felt confident walking around in!

The idea is you find the right blend of fruitsveggies, and greens to throw into a blender that make a delicious smoothie and a powerhouse nutrient-rich boost for your body! The possible and proven benefits to drinking a green drink on a daily basis are awesome!

  • green3Weight loss
  • Mood enhancement
  • Natural detox and cleanse
  • Immune support/boost
  • Huge percentage of daily need for vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • ENERGY increase that lasts
  • Fiber that you don’t get from juice
  • You feel ‘light’ verses ‘heavy’
  • Happy cells!!

Green smoothies are great at anytime during the day, but are particularly excellent for breakfast. Our body goes through natural cycles  throughout a day where it focuses respectively on these three processes: Elimination, Appropriation, and Assimilation. In the morning we are typically in elimination mode and our body is focusing on releasing toxins and cleansing. 

imagesEating a heavy breakfast that is cooked can often be counter-productive to this cycle. Think of how it feels if you’re trying to clean the kitchen and before you’re done someone comes in and starts pulling out  food to make a big meal.  It would definitely slow you down or maybe even stop you from cleaning completely. Our body is the same way.

Our body responds the best to living and easily digestible foods in the morning. Living food means it is raw (uncooked) and is thus still full of enzymes and nutrients that aid digestion and fuel your body.

Convinced to give smoothies a try? Let’s address some common hesitations for those that need a push!

Tastes nasty?

The first time I made a green smoothie it was disgusting. I didn’t blend it well so it was chunky and I was a little too ambitious on the percentage of greens that I added.  In general we are used to overly-sweet food, and starting off your smoothie habit with too many veggies can cause you (and your family victims) to tank before finishing the first glass. Luckily our taste buds adapt over time. Try starting with 20% veggies and 80% fruit. Then slowly change it until you’re eventually drinking 50/50. Baby steps!

Can’t get over looks and texture?

 
I would recommend getting a good blender.  For example try a Blendtec. They are FANTASTIC. Your smoothies will feel like Jamba Juice.  But let’s be real, a good portion of us don’t have that kind of money to throw around just yet.  But don’t let that stop you from changing you life.  Any blender will do the job. Putting the veggies in and blending them for a bit first can help to get rid of chunks making them easier to drink. 
 
Bored?

Now that I’ve got a spouse to please, I’ve put a lot more energy into VARIETY. Don’t get stuck on one recipe. Try new things! Mix new colors! If you make your family drink something that tastes too weedy one day, make a really delicious one the next day. Find your favorites and have fun getting creative.
