Herbs Are Safer Than Big Pharma Meds

Considering the dangerous side effects that result from taking synthetic big pharma medications, making the decision to put your complete trust in herbs is a very wise decision.  The numerous lawsuits that have occurred in the recent 10 years prove that there is a high risk factor involved with taking big pharma medications for any reason.  The Vioxx case involving Merck & Co. Inc. and now Gardasil are two of the many lawsuits that occurred because the patients suffered horrifying adverse health problems, some deadly, because the medications contain toxic ingredients that destroyed the lives of these victims.  All you have to do to know that the medication is dangerous and should not be used is to attempt to read the long list of ingredients on the package.  You'll require reading a medical journal or encyclopedia just to decipher one ingredient.  

The solution is simple.  Mother Nature's medicine cabinet contains herbs that have grown wild for decades and pose no risk of destroying a person's life.  Herbs like valerian and chamomile may be a little sedating, but they won't send you to the emergency room because you feel like you're dying.  You can trust Mother Nature's bountiful medicine cabinet for all that ails you.  All you need to do is familiarize yourself with various plants, their use, and medicinal properties, and you'll be safe and healthy.

Cotton Shower Curtains Are Healthier and Safer Than Vinyl

After years of being exposed to toxic vinyl shower curtains and suffering painful respiratory health problems, I researched healthy alternatives and made some wonderful discoveries.  Vinyl is becoming less popular everyday and cotton, especially organic cotton, has gained in popularity.  According to Greenpeace, vinyl contains toxins, such as PVC and phthalates, that do not biodegrade, and transform into extreme toxic pollution for the groundwater, wildlife, and the very air we breathe.  As a severe asthmatic and chemically sensitive sufferer, I am very grateful to have the choice to use a cotton curtain and be able to breathe much easier.  Recently, my husband and I were very fortunate and delighted to pick up a cotton shower curtain from a local freecycler.  After letting it air out in the fresh air outside and outgas the toxic synthetic fragrance it was exposed to, he was happy to hang it on our shower.

Healthy Vegetarians and Vegans Don't Need Fast Food

Although I love animals dearly, I made the decision to go vegetarian primarily for health and environmental reasons.  The ample information health experts and advocates shared with me was enough to help me make a very healthy wise decision.  My newfound friends and the health experts I listened to encouraged me to eat healthy plant-based foods that were organic and whole and non-denatured.  The next step was vegan and I'm happy to say that to this day, I'm a healthy happy organic vegan and I'm very grateful for the choices and decisions I made.  

One of the vital decisions I made was to vote with my wallet and only contribute to those businesses that genuinely care about the planet, the animals, and the humans.  I am adamantly opposed to supporting corporate America, especially those destructive monster chains that have their talons in every country in the world!  One of them is McDeath and to my chagrin, there are activists who, oddly enough. support them and are encouraging others to support them.  

I recently read a couple tweets celebrating their so-called "kindness toward chickens" and some "green work they're doing".  I feel like I'm in the twilight zone here!  Why on Earth would anyone with common sense support a monster that's contributing to the destruction of every species on Earth; plant, animal, and human?  The green rumors are "greenwashing" and this rumor being spread about their supposed "kindness" toward chickens is ghastly and absurd!  Considering their menu of fast toxic death mixed in with tasteless cardboard and flavored with laboratory created substances that when mixed together, could create a bomb, there is nothing benevolent about their menu.

Instead of encouraging newbie vegetarians and vegans to eat fast death, why not support the animals, Mother Earth, and personal health?  Respecting the animals and being a voice advocate for them is wonderful, but adapting a vegan diet is also very much a health and environmental choice.  It's very hypocritical to advocate a plant-based diet, respecting the animals, and at the same time voting with your wallet for fat cat monsters.  There is no self-respect, honor, dignity, or empowerment in such decisions.

In the year, 2010, there are a bounty of wonderful healthy organic vegetarian, vegan, and raw restaurants in every city throughout North America and abroad.  There are also a bounty of wonderful organic health food stores and certified farmer's markets where people can empower themselves and make conscious honorable purchases with their wallet.  Please support conscious aware companies that support Mother Earth, the animals, and the humans.  Vote with your wallet and let your voice be heard and make a positive contribution!

Organic Hypocrisy

The organics greenie movement has become very popular in 2010 and many people are striving to reduce their carbon footprint.  The problem is that some of the efforts being made are minimal and don't make sense.  A good example of this is the agenda to conserve water and stop drinking water from plastic bottles.  These are both very important steps to take toward reducing our carbon footprint on Mother Earth and I certainly do commend them.  The problem is that there are those who believe that providing they're conserving water and drinking water from a non-plastic bottle, it's okay and safe to pour toxic petro-chemicals down the drain.  

I wholeheartedly disagree with this way of thinking.  Being mindful of water usage is important, but it does not make any sense to take a 3-minute shower while washing your hair with toxic petro-chemicals that will damage the indoor and outdoor air, the groundwater, and the wildlife.  And please remember, you may be drinking water from a clean source, but if you're using hair and skin care products that are laden with toxic petro-chemicals, your cells will absorb everything like a sponge because the skin is the largest organ.  

A true environmentalist cares for his or her personal health and the health of the planet equally.  Please stop polluting Mother Earth and learn how products that contain 100% organic herbal plant essences can help you improve your health.  Please improve your relationship with Mother nature and show her honor, respect, compassion, and gentleness.

Trees of light brush thru the Clouds 
Their Hearts strumming 
The Kiss of night 
Children playing in the Darkness 
Streams of Light Kiss the Moonlit Sky.

Black Skies and Beaches
Walking on sandy beaches 
Sand reflections from the crescent Sky 
Stars beaming forward the Horizon 
Birds singing, their wings holding fire 
I feel my lungs quench the Moon-filtered air 
As the Indigenous Species turn in for the night.
