Dirty Electricity

I had the great pleasure to welcome Donna Fisher, Author of ‘Silent Fields’ into my home for a Feeling Fabulous Workshop last night.

Donna’s mission is to educate people about the dangers of Radiation. We are all exposed to it, at home, at work, at school…. In the US, the government is actually acknowledged this problem, and in Russia, the government has been protecting their people for years!

Donna states: ‘ A Chemical Enviroment and Radiation  clearly contributes to the high Risks of Cancer today!’

As with toxic chemicals, it will take years for our government to allow its people to learn about the real dangers of Dirty Electricity. So until then it is in our hands to make sure our homes are safe from this plague that contributes to so many cases of cancer, autism etc.

Check out Donna’s website to buy the Books ‘Silent Fields’ or contact me, I have some for sale too!

 

MORE SILENT FIELDS Cancer and the Dirty Electricity Plague The Missing Link explains why:

  • There is so much cancer and why you may unknowingly be in a cancer cluster.
  • Professional and office workers have high cancer incidence rates.
  • Indoor workers have higher malignant melanoma rates.
  • Pregnant women should not use computers at all.
  • Some diabetics are not diabetic at all.
  • Dirty Electricity can trigger Multiple Sclerosis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
  • Autism has had such a staggering increase in two decades and what technology may help to prevent and assist in the treatment of.
  • A common baby aid is now suspected to be a culprit in the rise in autism and increase the risk of SIDS.
  • Computers are a large part of the dramatic increase in breast cancer statistics.
  • A new breast cancer detection system that is: pain free; Radiation free; ultrasound free; and not confused by dense breast tissue may be the new ‘gold standard’.
  • The cancer treatment using electromagnetic energy that does not harm healthy tissue has been endorsed by one country in 2009 and is available for rebates on the national health scheme.
  • A ground-breaking new wave technology that can turn the body from an acidic state into an alkaline state within a few hours should be made mandatory in every building.
  • The 20th century epidemic of the so called diseases of civilisation including cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes and suicide were caused by electrification, not by lifestyle.


Hope you find the time to invest reading Donna’s book! Education gives you the power to make informed choices for yourself and your family!

More on Toxic Chemicals

I had the pleasure to meet the wonderful Sarah Lantz PHD, Author of ‘Chemical Free Kids’ at a Seminar last night.

Listening to Sarah, i realised how bad chemical exposure really is for our children! Sarah is part of a research team in the US who do research on placentas, finding out how many toxins the newborn baby already carries in it’s body! The last ten Newborn Babies were loaded with more then 287 different chemicals, from which some of them were toxins banned over 30 years ago!!! Now how can anyone still say that all those toxins we use daily don’t stay in our system??? not only do they stay in out system, but they get stored so well that we give them to our babies through the placenta years later!!! Imagine your child will most probably pass on toxic chemicals to your grandchild, chemicals your child got from you! Scary isn’t it? We have to break that circle, we have to take responsibility and stop poisoning ourselves and our families!

‘The small amout of chemicals that are used in nearly all personal care products today can’t do any harm’, many people say. But every drop contributes to the lake… and chemicals are designed to work in small amounts!

Most toxic chemicals exposure is in our control, start with your home, it is your most toxic place! It is so important to create a healthy home! I would be honoured to help you!

The other thing is all toxins released into our world simply stays there and affects our waterways, animals and plants. Toxins don’t just disappear! What we do to Mother earth we do directly to ourselves!

How do toxic chemicals around our home really affect us?

For those of you who haven’t read or heard of a book called ‘Slow Death by Rubber Duck’, I strongly suggest getting hold of a copy. This is one of the most informative books of this time. If you want to know more about what’s in our environment and what’s affecting us, this has the answers. Read the extract below for more info:

The authors of Slow Death by Rubber Duck, Canadian environmentalists Rick Smith (left) and Bruce Lourie.
Two “lab rat” authors have been shocking readers with their book on the effects qlof everyday chemicals, writes Liza Power.
IN 1995, American film director Todd Haynes made a harrowing film called Safe. It stars Julianne Moore as Carol, a beautiful Californian housewife who, with a wealthy husband and picture-perfect home, finds herself peculiarly afflicted by a raft of strange ailments. First headaches, skin rashes, nose bleeds, a cough. Then she suffers a grand mal seizure. Her GP can offer no diagnosis, nor can an allergist or psychiatrist.
As Carol’s symptoms worsen, she becomes convinced she is being poisoned by the chemicals that define our modern lives: aerosol sprays, face creams, processed foods, pesticides on fruit and vegetables. Seeking a cure, she signs herself into a new-age health retreat for the “environmentally ill” and begins a regimen to purge herself.
While the film is a fictional foray, its nightmarish premise — that the chemicals we encounter every day could be killing us — forms the focus of a recent book called Slow Death by Rubber Duck. Based on the firsthand research of prominent Canadian environmentalists Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie, the portrait it paints of modern life is just as chilling. The two decided to use themselves as lab rats for their research. Locking themselves in a “test room” condo, they set about ingesting, inhaling and lathering themselves with products most of us use daily. They then proceeded to measure, through urine and blood samples, how readily their bodies absorbed the chemicals they were exposed to.
On a recent visit to Australia for the Sydney Writers Festival, Smith and Lourie say they face the same reaction to the book everywhere: sheer horror. “Yes, but besides shock we’ve been met with a deep, gut-level acceptance from people that these synthetic chemicals we’ve surrounded ourselves with can’t be good. So many people have been touched by cancer in their immediate families and they sense there’s a link to environmental contaminants. Our book has landed in the middle of that social awakening,” says Smith.
They approached their research with several goals. After extensive work in the field of body burden testing — which shows our bodies absorb myriad chemicals but doesn’t reveal specifically where they come from — they wanted to take the next logical step. “The whole idea behind the self-experimentation was to demonstrate concretely that the decisions we make every day as consumers really matter. Also that it’s possible to measure in real ways the impact of all these products we use,” says Smith.
Inspired by the likes of Morgan Spurlock and Michael Moore, the two began sifting through reams of scientific research. “We went through lists of possible chemicals to focus on and we wound up with seven that emerging scientific evidence identifies as being of real concern.”
They deliberately chose chemicals people would encounter in different parts of their lives: the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or garden, those ingested in food or beverages, others that leach from cooking utensils, containers, pots and pans.
Assembling an “average life” required consideration, particularly given the two eliminated most chemicals from their own lives some time ago.
“We consciously set out to mimic everyday life, so the cardinal rule of our testing was not to do anything out of the ordinary. For the phthalates experiment, I simply shampooed my hair, shaved and used anti-perspirant, using products people purchase in your average grocery store,” says Smith.
In the book, each experiment is foregrounded with reference to existing scientific research, with studies translated from dense, scientific terminology into accessible plain-speak.
While the two expected there would be surprises, they found the efficiency with which their bodies absorbed various toxins “utterly mind-blowing”. “No one has ever done this kind of work before, so we didn’t have signposts to guide us, but the rapid nature of the increases within very short 12-hour periods really shocked us.”
In one experiment involving the chemical triclosan — commonly used in antibacterial products, toothpaste, facial cleanser, deodorant and soaps — which has been identified as an endocrine disrupter and related to the rise of bacterial resistance, Smith exposed himself to eight supermarket products simultaneously.
Over a 48-hour period, the levels of triclosan in his urine increased 2900-fold. He writes: “So after two days, my self-experimentation took me from the very bottom of the [scale] to far above the highest value recorded to date in the US population.” That his body is flushing the chemical out is good news. What happens when the human body adapts to high levels of triclosan and begins to metabolise it at a slower rate, leading to its accumulation in bodily tissues, presents the greater concern.
Rubber Duck also contextualises its scenarios — our modern obsession for cleanliness, say — against a historical backdrop, often to fascinating effect. With the exceptions of the Romans and their penchant for baths, bathing was, certainly until well into the 17th century, largely avoided; it was widely believed to rob the body of its vital essences and spirit. As Smith and Lourie note, soap did not become widely available or affordable until the 1800s. Before then, baths were looked upon as radical remedies for serious illness; they were usually prescribed and conducted under strict medical supervision.
Playing a pivotal role in this radical shift in thinking has been the advertising industry, which through relentless campaigning has taught us to view germs of any description as evil to the point of life-threatening. Smith delights in recounting the story of Listerine, which was first marketed as a floor cleaner and a cure for gonorrhea, before being packaged as a mouth-wash. “The Listerine company actually invented the word halitosis and the modern concept of bad breath so they could sell more Listerine,” scoffs Smith. “Before that halitosis didn’t even exist.”
Smith blames governments for failing to regulate and monitor the introduction of chemicals as they enter the marketplace. “Most people assume, not illogically, that our governments protect us. . . . But that turns out to be not the case. There are about 80,000 synthetic chemicals in commerce today, everything from pesticides to the varnish on your desk, the foam in the chair you’re sitting on and only a few of those chemicals, less than 5 per cent, have been safety tested.”
One of Smith’s main fears, not to mention his greatest incentive in writing the book, was to examine the chemicals children are exposed to — in toys, clothing, bottles. As the father of two young boys, he still feels guilty about feeding his son with a baby bottle made with bisphenol A (BPA), given studies now link bisphenol A and phthalates with prostate cancer and reproductive abnormalities. BPA is banned in Denmark, Canada and the US, with other European nations also considering bans, yet it is still widely available in Australia and New Zealand.
Responding to demands for similar restrictions here, federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon stated in January that responsibility for such decisions rested with the Therapeutic Goods Administration, which subsequently deferred responsibility to Food Standards Australia New Zealand. The latter maintains it has no regulatory authority over baby bottles and has never commissioned its own research on BPA and its effects.
For Smith, this frenzy of passing the buck is nonsensical, particularly in the face of more than 130 studies over the past decade that link even low levels of BPA to serious health problems, including breast cancer.
“Last night I went to a grocery store in Sydney and bought precisely the same toothpaste and shampoo I used in the experiments,” says Smith. “The chemicals they contain have been banned in Canada and the US but they’re still available here. It’s worrying.”
He says the American and Canadian Medical Associations have recently called for a ban on the household use of triclosan, because of concerns about its health effects. There has also been a significant push in Canada to ban the use of pesticides for home gardens. Spearhead by doctor’s organisations, mainstream cancer societies, nurses and scientists, its momentum is building.
Smith and Lourie’s research has attracted its fair share of criticism, namely from manufacturers who claim the chemical content of their products is too low to cause harm. Which might be the case, Smith acknowledges, if people were only exposed to one or two chemicals a day. “But the problem is that we’re exposed on a minute-by-minute basis to hundreds and thousands of these synthetic chemicals and chemical companies just don’t have a good answer as to what the cumulative effect over time or a lifetime will be. They’ve not done that science so they just don’t know.”
Smith and Lourie’s next project is another book, this time focusing on nanotechnology, cosmetics (including anti-ageing treatments) and detox products (think four-day colon-cleanses or liver detox tablets). Once again, they hope it will feed the gradual social awakening they see in people wherever they travel. Smith is emboldened by the tide of change currently taking place in Canada in the US, by the way medical bodies and community groups are joining forces to lobby governments and effect real change.
“The important thing to realise is that [Rubber Duck] is a hopeful book. It’s not about making people despondent, but rather moving them to action. Making them realise that the decisions they make are really important.”

Is it time to Loose Weight?

I had the pleasure to hear Dr Wayne Reilly speak last night. Wow, were you aware that the people of Australia have move to No. 1 of ‘fattest people in the world’?

He explained how for 80,000 generations we were hunters and gatherers, then we started to farm wheat for 400 generations. It was then we started to eat lots of Carbohydrates, but through the farming process burned the energy in our daily lives. Then followed 3 Generations (200 years) of mechanical farming, we started to put on weight, we didn’t move enough to burn our Carbs anymore. Then came the Fast-Food revolution, and how have we changed in only a few years?

Did you know that 200gr of white flour pasta equals 150gr of sugar? And when and how exactly are we burning these calories? We don’t, it just accumulates on our bodies.

So what does it do to our health? Too much sugar causes our bodies to be acid; so it inflammes. We get think blood, which in return causes blood clothes ect.

Did you know that 1 in 2 Women post menopause die of heart dis-ease? It also causes cancer, Alzheimers, prostate problems, poly-cystic ovary syndrome…

Isn’t it time we take control of our bodies? We try so hard to gain material wealth, only to spend it to get back our health!

Please do yourself a favor and start getting healthy again. You deserve to be healthy and your friends and family with thank you for it!

Feel free to contact me if you’d like me to point you into the right direction and make a ‘health’ plan that works for you!

Think about it, it may be the most important desicion you make for yourself!

In Love and Light,

Priority List

Health, in my eyes, is one of the most talked subjects. We all view it differently, but ultimately its one of those things everyone wants.

Health to me is a combination of things we do ( or don’t) and through that acquire health. How healthy are we if we eat a good diet, drink plenty of water, take adequate supplementation but live i a destructive relationship, feel anger, resentment and even hate all the time? Then we just get eaten up mentally. Or what about feeling happy, being successful but eat a diet of fast foods and drink alcohol every day?

So a combination of good foods, plenty of water, exercise, adequate supplementation and a healthy mindset are the key to health, or better; the prevention of dis-ease.

Unfortunately many people don’t look at getting healthy until they are sick. Over 1 in 3 people are overweight, the chances of developing diabetes, heart problems and cancers are very high, yet most people don’t do anything and then when sick would give everything to be healthy again. So what would it take to get people to look at prevention? Why is it that such a little amount of people are practicing prevention? This is a question that i turn over in my head a lot, for many years.

We are a very stressed society, yet we do nothing for ourselves to unwind, to relax. ‘No time’ is the most commonly used excuse. But the real question is Priority! Where does health stand on our priority list?

We are inspired by our values. Our values defines who we are. Have you thought about your values? What things are important to you? Where does health stand on your priority list?

Funny enough most people have health right on top of their priority list. When asked; ‘would yo like to be sick?’ i have yet to meet the person who’ll answer ‘yes, please!’. So what are you prepared to give, to stay healthy if you’re healthy, or to get healthy. How much would becoming healthy mean to you?

What would you be prepared to do, be prepared to give up to feel; happy, slim, energetic? And imagine what role-model would you be for your children?

So what would you be prepared to do to stay healthy? All it takes is a little bit of education, to learn about the subject. Learn about foods, find out what terrible chemicals people add to our foods and then avoid them. Learn about all the sythetic, toxic chemical they add to our personal care and homecare products we cover ourselves and our children with, and then avoid them. Get out into the fresh air, soak up sun, drink plenty of clean water, make friends that are positvie, that support you and your values! Loose the ‘Dreamstealers’, the people who tell you that you can’t do something, for whatever reason.

Learn to meditate, to relax, let go of bad feelings, forgive other people and yourself. Practice Positive Affirmations, start with saying to yourself in the Mirror; Every Day in every possible Way I am getting Better, Better and Better! Avoid the words, no, not and can’t. Turn sentences into positive ones! Be aware of what you are thinking and talking about.

I’d love to help you, it is my passion to help people becoming healthy!

I wish you all the health in this world!

In love and light
