From GMO to BIO

I took this off Facebook today as I thought if you are a label reader like I am you will probably see this and wonder what it is. It sounds real healthy – No it is not.

This is what Sara Hansen wrote:-

OK so this just happened in Australia 😕
Why would they do this? 🙄

Well Bio Fortified sounds alot more natural & acceptable, has a nice ring to it doesn’t it. What would you think if your read that on a label? 🤷‍♀️

As a community we have become aware of GMO crops & there is a negative assosiation. Just like MSG which is now labeled yeast extract, yep Yeast extract. Sounds better, more natural right 🤦‍♀️

It is our RIGHT to know what we are eating so we can make an informed CHOICE ☝🏾

This has reiterated so strongly why I am doing what im doing 🙌🏾

To empower people to healthy, fun, fullfilled lives with passion & purpose. Living with connection to family community & the environment ✌🏾🧡

When your quality of life is compromised by our governing bodies taking away our CHOICES…this is when as a community we come together & show we care 🙏🏽💜

What the Heck Is This Stuff Called Kangen Water💦

Good start to an informative video. 

He has a good point about the plastic waste in this world. Thankfully both Australia and New Zealand are aware of this and doing a great cleanup job of reducing the waste of all sorts of plastic from tooth picks to bottles, caps etc which invariably end up on our beaches and ocean. It is also getting recognition in the states and parts of Europe. Only parts. Just been to Croatia and was alarmed to see the plastic waste and cigarette butts just thrown in the ocean and the same with Curacao. Such beautiful countries marred by people not been educated in keeping their environment clean which incidentally is their living as well. So for me the more people that make these places aware of the damage that they are doing the better.

Hence back to the subject of these Kangen water machines of which I have two. Not only are they great for your health they are great for the environment. I would advise that you listen to what he has to say. It is to the point without wasting your time with drivel.

“If you don’t do different nothing will change”

Not only the Ocean harbor’s Plastic So Do Our Bodies 💦

 

I read this article in the Australian Courier Mail newspaper online this morning (10/25/2018) . Everyone should read this as it is quite enlightening and maybe the answer to some the diseases like cancer that affects all of us whether be a relative, friend or acquaintances. Also it could make you think about the choices we make about what we consume, wear, walk and sleep on.

I have copied this article word for word from the newspaper, as I don’t want to be misquoted or called an alarmist in any way as serious research has been done on this matter.

 

Proof of Plastic Particles in our body

Human bodies are becoming polluted with plastic. Scientists have confirmed for the first time. Tiny pieces were found in samples from every participant in an experiment that tried to estimate how much plastic we eat and drink every day.

Until now most research has focused on the natural world, but the new study shows that humans are also consuming plastic, with some pieces potentially lodging in our bodies.

Researchers suggested sources could include the eating of fish or drinking of water from plastic bottles.

Campaigners said the scale of the plastic crisis meant it was “impossible” for people to avoid eating, drinking and breathing in plastic – with potentially harmful effects. These include the risk of bacterial infections, introducing harmful chemicals to the body. Irritating the gut lining and affecting immune responses.

Lead researcher Dr Philipp Schwabl said – This is the first study of its kind and confirms what we have long suspected that plastics ultimately reach the human gut. Of particular concern is what this means to us, and especially patients with gastrointestinal diseases. The smallest micro plastic particles are capable of entering the bloodstream and lymphatic system and may even reach the liver.

“Now we have first evidence for micro plastics inside humans, we need further research to understand what this means for human health.”

Hundreds of pieces of micro plastics were found in every stool sample taken from people who took part in the study by the medical University of Vienna.

Researchers from the university and the Environment Agency Austria monitored participants from the UK, Finland, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, Russia and Austria. The results showed every sample tested positive for the presence of micro plastics – with up to nine different types identified. The most common plastics were polypropylene and polyethylene-terephthalate (PET) both are often found in food and drink packaging.

Each participant in the study kept a food diary for a week before his or her samples were analyzed in the laboratory. The diaries showed all the participants had eaten food wrapped in plastic or drunk from plastic bottles. None of the participants were vegetarian and six of them ate sea fish.

The micro plastics found were between 50 and 500 micrometers in size. A human hair has a thickness of between 17 and 181 micrometers.

The researchers behind the new study note: It is highly likely that during various steps of food processing or as a result of packaging, food is being contaminated with plastics.

Synthetic fabrics are also a significant source of micro plastics in the environment as fibers from clothes end up in the ocean from treated and untreated sewage being released into the rivers

Daily Mail

On reading this article it confirms in my mind that we all need some form of filtered water  – (Kangen water is always what I recommend) and much regulated plastic bottles to drink from.

Biodynamic – The Real Deal

Have you ever wondered what Biodynamic farming is all about?
Well I had the privilege to actually go to one of their farms years ago. Found it absolutely fascinating. It is a real commitment to very healthy and pure food and farming.

So if you see the name on any products you can be assured that they are the best and purest food you can buy.
I found this article in the “Health and Nature” magazine and if you are interested in good nutritious food it is worth reading.
These type of farms are all over the world not just Australia

 

 

What does being a biodynamic farmer mean? It means that we provide the best possible value in our dairy products for our customers. It also means that we care for the environment in the best possible way. We do not pollute waterways, and we farm with the least water usage and waste possible. We care for our animals in the best possible way – for example, leaving calves with cows as long as they drink milk; not using anything artificial in animal husbandry, and running a bull with the herd to avoid artificial insemination; and by not using hormones, antibiotics, or chemical drenches. We use preventive methods, like herbal creams for udders to prevent mastitis,  herbal and mineral-based products in drinking water to prevent infections or parasites. We use biodynamic preparations made from herbs, manure and minerals on the soil, which provide nutrients that soil microorganisms need to be balanced, so that plants growing in that soil will be healthy and fertile. We try to keep a natural balance between native vegetation and crops to feed the cows. We run monthly study and discussion groups for interested farmers or home gardeners, and two-day workshops where people can learn to make the homeopathic preparations. For us, biodynamic farming is the only sustainable way of farming. Biodynamic farming means our kids can experience chemical-free farm life and grow up in a natural environment with friendly, happy animals.

How does biodynamic farming compare with conventional farming? It is similar to organic farming, in that both farming styles do not use chemicals, do not plant genetically modified crops, and follow strict rules as to how animals are treated, and what with. The difference is that in organic farming, one can take a fairly conventional approach, for example, if there is a weed problem they can use a spray or other method to get rid of the ‘problem’. In biodynamic farming, we instead regard this ‘problem’ as an indicator of where there is an imbalance. We then use natural methods, like weed teas made with herbal concentrates, to restore balance in the environment so that the problem becomes minor and eventually disappears. The same applies with treatments for the animals: we try to prevent problems by providing balanced feed rather than boosting milk production with a higher protein intake. In biodynamics, the long-term goal is healthy, long-living cows, which bear healthy calves without problems, and provide average, balanced production of unhomogenized milk. There is evidence from Europe that continuous consumption of homogenized milk is liked to heart disease; it may also lead to intolerances, as the body has difficulty dealing with proteins that can’t be digested and attempts to reject the unwanted fat molecules.

What is the one thing you want our readers to hear? Support local farmers to the best of your ability – this keeps our food chain alive, keeps Australian food being produced in Australia, and prevents productive land from being destroyed. Companies like ours need consumer support at the cash register. If supermarkets are made to understand that if products like ours are taken off the shelves and replaced with cheap imports or home-brand products that they will not be purchased, they will take notice! Vote with your dollar, and use the complaint pages on supermarket websites to have your say.

Here I Go Again – Bottled water – No No No💦

Here she goes again, I know, but this is a serious matter for our environment, our childrens hormonal health in the future, everyones health.

This is a 17 minute video which you really need to watch. I found this information on Dr Mercolas web site. His article confirming that most bottled water is contaminated with micro plastics and extremely harmful.

My friend Julie Bezett has just photographed and videoed in her area of the plastic overload in the rivers and the sea. The destruction of the environment wether it be in our sea, on the land or our intestines we need to think twice before we purchase water in these plastic containers. There are containers that are environmentally compatible, cost more but certainly a better option.

 

Alternative of course Kangen Water. Not because I am a distributor, its because I believe it to be the best machine on the market. Producing the best quality.

2.  $457 Billion – the amount Americans spent on prescription drugs in 2015. Up 18% over previous year. 

208% rise in prices – for the most popular brands of drugs from 2008 – 2016

$14.5 million median salary of a pharmaceutical firm CEO in 2015 more than any other industry.

4.  Hold hands to feel better – Partners of women in labour have normally held their hand during this process. There is now scientific proof that holding your lovers hand helps reduce the pain that they are feeling. It is to do with “interpersonal synchronization” where partners heartbeats and breathing synch during shared activities. A US study of 22 couples found that just sitting next to each other led to a physiological synch-up, but that stopped when pain appeared. If they touched hands though, the couples breathing and heart rates aligned again, and the pain reduced. 

 

 

5. Apparently according to research from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson school of management in the US found that those who performed tasks in a messy environment were 28% more creative than those who did so in a tidy room

Change Your Water – Change Your Life Story

Kangen Water - Change your water, change your life!

Enjoy Wellness with Alkaline Kangen Water®

Staying hydrated plays a crucial role in maintaining overall wellness. So why choose Kangen Water® for your hydration needs? You have already learned many of the benefits of Kangen Water®. Now let’s hear what world-renowned biochemist Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg once said about alkalinity, and the part it plays in achieving better health.

Otto Heinrich WarburgOtto Heinrich Warburg

In his ground-breaking research, Warburg found that all forms of unhealthy cells are characterized by two basic conditions: high acidity and lack of oxygen. In fact, alkalinity implies higher concentration of oxygen molecules, according to Warburg. He explains that when water molecules split, “if there is an excess of H+, [it] is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.” Lack of oxygen is a very serious and dangerous environment for a cell. Even if you deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for just 48 hours, it may become damaged.

For better health, Warburg insists that cells need an alkaline environment. Since unhealthy cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, they cannot survive in an alkaline environment. This is why it is crucial to consume an alkaline diet with negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential).

Where can you find a water that supports wellness based on Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg’s findings?
