Whether you love Donald Trump or hate him, one thing you gotta admit: it’s refreshing that he says exactly what he feels needs to be said and gives non-sugarcoated answers to questions posed to him without the use of pre-approved scripts or teleprompters. This despite the fact that his communication style is frequently overly blunt and quite frankly, obnoxious.
I personally dig people who speak their minds (nicely of course!) whether I agree with them or not.
The Donald says what he means and means what he says. Not only is this approach a breath of fresh air, but it is something that has been totally lacking in American politics for many decades and in a nutshell why he currently leads the polls.
The Donald is able to get away with his no holds barred style because he is a self made mega-mogul. He answers to no one, needs financial support from no one, and gets slapped around (monetarily speaking or otherwise) by no one.
This means he can speak his mind without fear that campaign funds from Sugar Daddy corporations will dry up overnight, that his job or contract will go bye-bye or that he will get blacklisted from promising work opportunities in the future due to his worldview.
Hot flashes are a common and sometimes debilitating symptom of menopause.
A reader recently emailed me for help with this problem. She writes, “Sarah, I am having a terrible time with hot flashes. I’m having to get out of bed multiple times a week in the middle of the night to go stick my head in the freezer for relief. Can you suggest anything that might help me?”
As a matter of fact, there are definitely some very simple things a woman can do to avoid hot flashes potentially never experiencing them at all. The advice below comes from my trusted doctor of many years who is both a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and a MD, which gives her the very rare and valuable perspective of both mainstream and alternative medicine.
I cannot tell you how relieved I am to write this post because at long last I have a good answer for those of you who have a smart meter installed at your home against your will.
Smart meters are being used by the majority of utility companies today, and while a convenient cost cutting measure for them, they are a concentrated source of electromagnetic radiation (EMF) for consumers. Smart meter radiation is of a similar frequency to WiFi, cordless phones and cell phones. However, while of a similar frequency to these other devices, smart meters transmit at much higher power and concentration so much so that consumers are starting to note chronic health effects from having them installed such as frequent headaches, inability to concentrate, lack of quality sleep, anxiety and more.
The Monsanto path to global corporate success over the past century is littered with pain, suffering, and plenty of dead bodies. Officially founded in 1901, Monsanto’s first order of business was to produce saccharin, the artificial sweetener found to cause bladder cancer in rodents. My mother drank saccharin laced diet drinks during one of her pregnancies in the late 1960’s. It was the only pregnancy of seven to result in a low birthweight baby despite a full 40 weeks in utero likely due to a scarred placenta that confounded her doctor. My mother swears it was from the saccharin. Monsanto halted production of saccharin in 1972.
Since 1901, Monsanto has produced one deadly product after another, many of which were eventually yanked from the market but not before causing the suffering, permanent damage or death of millions of people along with horrific damage to the planetary environment:
Here is a brief history of the $16 billion dollar multinational corporation many people now refer to as MonSatan:
As Real Food enthusiasts, we do our best to prepare nutrient-rich meals for our families. We scrutinize the labels on foods to avoid nasty preservatives, additives, and genetically modified ingredients (GMOs). We opt for stainless steel or wooden kitchen gear over plastics to steer clear of BPA and other hormone disrupting chemicals. We even carefully select cleaning products that are free from synthetic, carcinogenic ingredients.
Yet, paradoxically many of us don’t give enough thought about the quality of the water that we are using or research what might be the best water filter for our particular situation and the water available in our area.
Even if we do manage to filter our drinking water, the filter is usually not of the quality necessary to remove fluoride or pharmaceutical residues. And surprisingly, the vast majority of people still bathe or shower in tap water containing chlorine and other toxins which research has shown devastates beneficial gut microflora.
