Testimonials from dog owners!

“My 5 year old Golden Retriever named “Bow” has been a beach lover all his life. We were at the Dog Beach playing fetch with his favorite ball when he snapped his left ACL. We hobbled back to the car, straight to his Vet. We were told he would need surgery to replace the ruptured ligament. A TPLO surgery was performed. He recovered, but a limp soon followed. We got the 2 paws up to return to full activity. Back to Dog Beach we went. Within 5 minutes, “Snap” the other knee went. He had the surgery on his injured leg & again recovered. However, this time I was able to give him Kangen 8.5. He has no limp on either leg, jumps up, runs and plays hard. He has returned to Dog Beach with tail waggin, lip smackin, bright-eyed excitement. Not a limp, not a whimper. I believe we owe his fast recovery to Kangen 8.5. And by the way, he had some strong acidic urine following the surgery, which burned the backyard grass. Now my grass is green and Bow is doing fantastic! Thank you Enagic® for Bow’s health. He won’t drink anything but Kangen Water®!

Our dog Charlie, a Pit-bull / Pointer mix, is 10 years old. Over the past few years he has developed a mild case of hip displacia, which would make him limp when he walked and have to steady himself in order to sit. He has also had severe inflammation on the inside of his ears that we could never get under control. We also noticed that the “pep” in his step was starting to fade as he got older. We started giving him the 9.5 pH water to drink and used the 2.5 pH water for his ears. He started showing amazing signs of improvement after only a few days. Now, his hip is no longer a problem. He is bounding around like a puppy again and sitting takes him no effort at all. His ears look great! He is in better shape now then he has ever been!! And the only change we made was the water we gave to Charlie. Thanks Enagic, the Kangen Water gave us our puppy back!

Our Cocker Spaniels are thriving! They have both been on Kangen 8.5 for several months and their health has noticeably improved. Coco’s Mom Patty makes a broth from the Kangen Water and Coco loves it. One day Coco’s Mom Patty ran out of the Kangen and she purchased some Arrowhead and Coco turned up her nose and wouldn’t drink it. Coco has been Patty’s cocker spaniel for 12 years and every three weeks has had her anal glands drained… this past time she went 6 weeks and brought Coco in for her draining and the glands were empty. This water has detoxified Coco’s system and is helping her fight a debilitating leg problem. Penny, on the other hand, is not as sophisticated as Coco in her tastes. However, I have had Penny on Kangen water for several months and I make her Coco’s Canine Cuisine with only the 8.5 Kangen and cook her chicken in the 8.5 Kangen Water and it has been so tasty for her, that she used eat like a bird and now eats like a dog!!! Her anal glands were impacted two months ago and I was scheduled to get them drained every three weeks and we went in and the Vet. Tech. said her anal glands were empty as well…we are AMAZED at the benefits of this Kangen Water for our cockers!

If your pet is feeling down or feeling the consequences from a high acidic diet, then try giving your furry friend Kangen Water®.

Survive Crisis No 6 – You Are Alone

You have suddenly become nauseated, dizzy and weak. Don’t wait around and self diagnose. Is it a Stroke, Heart Attack, Vertigo? You cannot tell. If you think you are going to faint or blackout sit down so that you don’t hurt yourself if you fall.

 

0Vtb52j

 

a. Call 911 or the emergency number of the country you are in. (I think personally it should be the same number world-wide). Because this is not the case when you travel always take note of what the emergency number is in that country as you never know when you need it.

Unlock your front door. If you are fainting get on the floor and if possible call verbally for help.

 

b. If this happens while drivingPull over to the side of the road and put on your  flashers. Call 911 and do not get out of the car as you may get knocked over by a passing vehicle.

c. Emergency responder instructionsThey will often place you in what they call ‘Recovery Position’ which is protection from hurting yourself if you become unconscious. 

Arrange yourself in this position by lying on your side with your bottom arm extended out from your body. Bend your top arm 90 degrees and drape your top wrist over your bottom elbow. Drape your top leg over your bottom leg.

Organizing your limbs in this way will prevent your body from rolling into another position .

d. Extra ProtectionIf you have a chronic condition it pays to always keep your cell phone handy. Another protection for speedy attention,  have your blood group written down or on an ID necklace  or any drug that you may be allergic to. It could save your life.

Survive crisis No 4

The pilot announces that your plane must make an emergency  landing
(My worst fear)

airplane1rgb1

You always assume that if a plane goes down everyone dies. Not always the case. A good example is the landing of flight 1549 piloted by Captain Chesley Sullenberger in the Hudson river in 2009. All crew and passengers escaped alive.

 

Here are some things to think about before you book your ticket for a flight.

a. In 2007 Popular mechanic’s published an analysis of 36 years worth of airline seating charts and 20 accidents back to 1971. Passengers sitting behind the wings had a 69 percent survival rate in an accident. Those sitting over or in front of the wings have a 56 percent survival while in first class only 49%.
(I have always observed that in most plane accidents the tail is sticking up off the ground and mostly in reasonable condition so I assumed you had a better chance of survival if you were in the back). So the plane maybe a little bumpy back there but if you are traveling coach it may be a good idea to book a seat at the back. First Class well you would assume you would go head first into the ground. Die in style.

b. Not everyone including myself always listens to the emergency instructions at the beginning of the flight. Air New Zealand have a great video for this and use humor to attract your attention to the emergency instructions.
Anyway identify your nearest emergency exit before you take off. Count the number of rows ahead and behind to the nearest Exit. The reason for this is that it may be dark or smoky and unable to see and have to feel your way out of the plane.

c. Dress in practical easy to move clothing and shoes. Wear long pants, long sleeves and athletic shoes for best mobility. If you have to run from a burning plane across a muddy field you will find heels, clogs or flip-flops totally impractical.

d. If possible stow your carry on under the seat in front of you.
Your carry on in this position will protect your legs.
Rest your forehead on the seat in front of you and let your arms hang loose. This way your head will have minimum movement on impact.

e. Listen closely to the instructions from the Flight attendant. Do not question it is no time to argue. Follow those instructions to the letter

Crucial Life Changing Decisions About You and Your Dollars

I know that when you are young and having fun, your responsibilities for the future seem so far away. Responsibilities really do not become part of your day-to-day thoughts or actions. In many ways that is a good thing because chances are you will be spending the most part of your life working, worrying and being responsible. I believe we all need our young and frivolous time. It’s good for our health gives us good memories.
When the time comes we need to consider some major decisions, about where and how we will spend our dollars for the future.

Here are some of them.

1. Do I take a job or do I get an education

When you leave school, the decision is to get a job and become a wage earner and avoid the years of study as a student ( of course not to mention the debt you will incur) to get a degree. Or you further our education with the expectation of a professional job with more income and of course it allows you to extend your knowledge and hopefully your intelligence. In my opinion, these days, a degree does not always guarantee you a job. I think the decision to go straight into the workforce actually gives you a taste of whether you enjoy your job or not. If after a year of earning a wage, it is not what you expect, you then can go into a study course and educate yourself in a field that you are passionate about or receive more satisfaction. Either way it is a decision you will have to make upon leaving school

2. Will I have a serious relationship

Almost everyone at some point in their life will commit to a serious relationship. This also has serious financial implications. Your partner may not share your attitude and behaviour towards money. You could become liable for debts he or she may incur. Be aware that there are money strings attached to a relationship. Another thing to consider is that your assets may be at risk if your relationship ends. You need to take care and protect yourself if you enter into a serious relationship.

3. Do I want children – or not

Children will have a big impact on your finances make no mistake. If you decide you do not want children or only one, you must discuss this with your partner very early in the relationship because he or she may have a different plan. It should be a decision pleasing to both of you and get your finances in place so that you are able to live on one income for some time. The cost of a child is thousands of dollars over its lifetime so you need to be prepared.

4. Should I prepare for my retirement and invest.

Of course this is a must. You need to go see a financial adviser (do your due diligence on finding one, as there are good and bad ones) so that he can steer you in the best direction. Everyone should join an additional saving scheme other than their work place retirement scheme, as young as possible.

5. Should I buy a house – or not

This is always an interesting question. If you talk to most financial experts they will tell you that your home is not really the best investment. I think at this economic times most people would agree with them.
It does not always mean you need to live in the property you buy. You can rent it out and the rent you receive may cover your rent elsewhere. This can protect you from future property booms. If house prices surge your property value should too. Maybe that is time to invest in another property using the value of your rented home as collateral.
One of the advantages of home ownership is that it forces savings over the years.

6. Should I insure

The golden rule is to insure what you cannot afford to lose. You obviously must insure your home or investment home as you cannot afford to lose such a big financial hit. Fire, flood, hurricane, anything like that. Always yes Always read the fine print. There are some insurance companies that promise the world but when it comes to paying out you may find they don’t cover things like flooding etc etc.
Consider this also you cannot afford to destroy someones BMW or Mercedes Benz so make sure your car has full insurance to cover such incidents.

7. Should I invest

You have your own investment property, home, or a super scheme then you are already an investor. If you have paid off your mortgage and have no bills get the advise of an independent financial advisor (Once again do your due diligence)

8. Should I have an emergency fund

Always expect the unexpected. An earthquake, illness, redundancy, divorce. Have a spare cash kitty at all times. The mortgage has to be paid, food has to be bought. You may be financially well off but if your cash is all tied up and not readily available for an emergency it may have a long-term impact. So keep some cash somewhere handy for that time that you need it. I know that it may not be the safest thing to do but keep some cash hidden, rather that in the bank because who knows what would happen if all the ATM’s malfunctioned. You may laugh but it could happen.

9. Should I start a business

Right now it is probably a risky business. On the other hand if you find a reason to start a business because of demand, well go for it. I still believe there would be opportunities out there to start a successful business. Be prepared to work long hours and take risks but in the end I am sure it would be rewarding. Countries were built on risky business and entrepeneurs and I think we need that inspiration once again to get our country back on its feet.
