Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an Attitude!

PinkOctober is breast cancer awareness month. Every year when October rolls around, I hear commercials, see pink ribbons, am asked to donate to the cause and know people that are participating in breast cancer events.

The money raised during the month of October comes rolling in-huge amounts of money. It is for a wonderful cause, but then I read about where the majority of the money goes…salaries to top executives, plush office space, overhead, etc. This really bothers me. What about the woman with cancer that can’t afford treatment? Or the woman that chooses to do Alternative Treatment and her insurance won’t cover the costs? Oh and the woman that had cancer and then her health insurance premium goes up every 6 months, until she can no longer afford the premium? I personally would rather help someone with cancer by paying a bill or buying her some organic groceries. Some of these charities are such a ripoff and those that truly need financial help often never see any.

Also, the whole ‘awareness month’ really bothers me. I am a 9 year survivor, my mother is a 29 year survivor and all three of her sisters had breast cancer and died. We’ve been tested and we don’t carry the gene! I’m not aware of breast cancer just during the awareness month. I’m aware of it everyday…when I look at myself in the mirror, when I’m showering or changing clothes, when I’m doing yard work and I must be careful not to injure my left hand or arm (to try to prevent lymphedema), when my lack of hormones is giving my body fits or when I pick up a grand child and they bump my still painful breast. Yes I’m aware, but much more often than the month of October!

There are many more cancers, not just breast cancer and we need research for them all. I personally believe that disease and cancer is caused by deficiencies in the body. If our body is getting all of the vitamins, minerals and essential fats needed it will be able to fight disease. Add clear air, proper hydration, remove the toxins and chemicals and the body should thrive.

I think cancer research is necessary and so is funding. There are some amazing things happening in Natural Medicine and in Integrative Medicine. Funding shouldn’t all go to Western Medicine research. It is time to look to the basics…back to the natural things that God provided us with, clean air, pure water, healthy organic nutrition and quality herbs. I’d like to see some trend setters make a bold contribution to research in the Natural Medicine arena.

Our food source needs to be cleaned up…no chemicals, toxins, growth hormones and no GMO’s. Some 160+ countries have banned GMO food and the United States is still allowing it and consuming it! Get this poison out of our grocery stores and out of our homes! Stop buying GMO food and non organic food and the grocery stores will be forced to stock the healthier choice. The consumer has the power to make them change. I am doing my part. I challenge you to do the same, for your health and your family’s health.

I am aware of cancer everyday. I am a survivor. I make healthy choices. By changing the air we breathe in our home, the water we drink, the food we purchase at the grocery store and have drop shipped to our home and the supplements we take, I know I am giving my body the best possible chance to be healthy and fight disease.

For me, pink represents health, living life to the fullest and survival. Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude! Wishing each of you optimal health. Are you up to the challenge?

The Amazing Lemon

High-quality photo ripe lemons on a white backgroundThis was shared with me through an e-mail, a story that was making its way around the internet.

I want to state that I drank lemon water while fighting cancer. I now have a competitively priced LivingWater that utilizes the advantages of Direct Disk Ionization Technology™ (DDI) to deliver great-tasting, ionized, alkaline water while using less energy than conventional plate units.

While some of the following information may be exaggerated, Snopes has a report on it, showing some truth.

I do know that cancer does not thrive in an alkaline body, and lemon juice becomes alkaline when ingested. It is one of many foods that promotes an alkaline body. Cancer likes an acid body.

Subject: The Amazing Lemon

All it is…. is a frozen lemon – Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

Simple… place the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

Sprinkle it to your wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes.

All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.

Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting.

But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the lemon secret! Better late than NEVER! The surprising benefits of lemon!

Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.

You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc. It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates elevated blood pressure and an anti-depressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas…

The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.

And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

See the Snopes link above…to balance some of the claims, and do your own research. But when all is said and done, the Lemon IS Amazing.
