Easy-to-Make Holiday Baskets

This Post Will offer:
1. Holiday Baskets to Make....
2. Give the Gift of Health!
3. Onion Cheese Bread Recipe

1. Nothing erases the Holiday doldrums better than cheering someone up with a Holiday Gift Basket. This collection of baked goods, fruit, nuts, a plant nestled in red and green decorative 'grass' and possibly some Gifts of Health tucked in is easy and affordable.
Decide on a limit of spending, Purchase a Gift Certificate, or use the materials you have around the house. This is also the time to give gifts to others that they may appreciate, but do nothing but collect dust and take up room in your shelves and drawers.

You'll need: a basket from the Dollar Store, or one you have saved for this very season. My picture today is one with little red Christmas balls on a woven basket from a local Dollar store that is too cute to keep to myself. I'll fill it with some cookies, an orange or two, a beautiful new necklace I will never wear, still in the box, a gingerbread cookie cutter (my friend has grandkids and no gingerbread boy cookie cutter) and a few bath items that I love, from Shaklee:

The Multi-purpose Herbal Cream smells like WintoGreen Lifesavers, and heals chapped hands, is great for foot massages, takes away itches almost immediately, and is called Face to Fanny cream, for its wide variety of uses. (I'll send the list upon request. It's good to place in the bottom of the basket.)
The friend I'm thinking of loves hot baths, and so I also am including a Shaklee white scrubby net and my favorite body soap-Meadowblend Bar. It's actually not soap, and instead of the alkaline soaps that compromise our skins' natural acid mantle, this one is easy and gentle, and leaves no soap scum rings behind.(A cleansing bar, enriched with pH-balanced formula is gentle on your skin, and contains oatmeal, vitamin E, and wheat germ oil to make you feel and look clean, healthy and soft.)

Another basket idea is for particular health problems, like the Arthritis Basket, with Shaklee's Alfalfa, Osteomatrix (calcium), Joint Health Complex if it's a knee problem with a loss of cartilage, and the Joint and Muscle Pain Cream. This Cream works really well. After a warm bath, massage it in and slip under the covers for a comforting night's sleep. A neighbor who ran a 5K run, discovered his body was aching all over. I had him do an experiment. We rubbed Joint and Muscle Pain Cream on one of his calves, and by the time he walked home, he noticed that leg no longer hurt. Another friend rubbed it on a damaged knee, and it stopped the pain. He then could feel pain in other joints that the knee had taken focus from. It works!

A loaf of bread, Applesauce Oatmeal Walnut muffins with Cranberries, Bread Sticks or Pretzels with coarse kosher salt, or Onion Cheese Bread, with a pint or quart of soup is also a nice basket. Have fun with the bows and ribbons, garlands, and Christmas labels made from old Christmas cards.


Write and ask for a Gift Certificate for Shaklee Products. You choose the amount of the gift.

Basics: For Women, Children, Teens or Men there is a Vita Lea Multi-vitamin/mineral for everyone.

Soy or Whey Protein, or Cinch for Healthy Weight. Leucine ensures lean muscle mass won't be lost, so calories can be burned efficiently.

Optiflora (probiotics) and Omega Guard (fish oil) are also part of the Basics!
Basics=4 products: Vita Lea, Soy Protein, Optiflora and Omega Guard.
OR: Vitalizer is a month's supply of daily strips with all the above and more, except the protein of course, which is Soy, Whey, or Cinch Healthy Weight.
Try Vivix for a powerful Antioxidant. (Grape skins and seeds and polyphenols for anti-aging and cellular protection. Testimonials of PSA to normal after 6 weeks of Vivix, lowered Blood pressure, thins blood naturally, protects against cancer and diabetes vascular damage, especially eyes).

3. Onion Cheese Bread Recipe

I've really loved this recipe with a good soup, or with salad, or a casserole. I made my own biscuit mix in the past. There are many recipes for it on the internet.

**Cook 1/2 c. chopped Onion in 1T. shortening or olive oil till clear
Blend 1 1/2 c. Biscuit Mix, 1/2 c. milk, 1 beaten egg, cooked onion, & 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese.
Spread in a greased pie plate. Top with 1/2 c. grated cheese, 1T. poppy or sesame seed, and 2Tbsp. melted butter over all.
Bake at 375 for 20-25 min.

A Basic Parasite Cleanse for Pets..

This is the Basic Parasite Cleanse for Pets from Dr. Clark, courtesy of
Pets are part of your family and should be kept healthy and parasite-free. Dr. Clark felt it was important to keep them on the Maintenance Program continuously.
1. Parsley Water: This has to be made by you. Cook a bunch of fresh parsley (approx. 1-2 inches thick at the stems) in a quart of water for 3 minutes. Make sure the parsley is completely submerged under the water. Drain and throw away the parsley. After cooling, you may freeze most of it in small cup containers or plastic freezer bags.
Put 1 teaspoon of parsley water on the pet's food. The parsley water is important for their kidneys. Continue with this dosage of parsley water for one week before beginning with the black walnut.
All the dosages are based on a 10 lb. dog or cat. Double them for a 20 lb. animal, and so forth.

2. Black Walnut Tincture. Put 1 drop of Black Walnut Tincture on the pet's food.
For cats, do this ONLY twice a week. For dogs, do this daily. For a 30 lb. dog, put 3 drops, but work up to it, increasing 1 drop per day.

3. Wormwood Capsules. Begin with the wormwood capsules 1 week afgter starting the Black Walnut. Open a capsule and put just a pinch of their food. Do this for a week before adding the clove capsules.

4. Clove Capsules. Open a capsule and put just a pinch on their food.

An example: A 20 lb. cat would be taking:
2 teaspoons of parsley water
2 drops of Black walnut tincture (twice a week for cats.)
1 pinch of Wormwood
1 pinch of Cloves. (After a week of Wormwood, you start this.)

An example: A 60 lb. dog would be taking:
6 teaspoons of parsley water
6 drops of Black Walnut tincture daily
1 pinch of Wormwood
1 pinch of Cloves

To Keep You Healthy, try the Basics:

For Healthy Kids:

Immune Boosting: (I read a post of someone with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer, who took the Basics and then 6 Nutriferon every night, until all signs of cancer were gone at about 4 1/2 months.

"I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned and hopefully you’ll have an openness to hear it. Jim Burke was a cancer specialist and his recommendation of 8 oz. of Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein and 9 NutriFeron comes through Marty and Lynn Fredricks whose friend went from Stage 3 pancreatic cancer in 4 1/2 months later being told there was NO SIGN OF IT! Elena tells me the magic is taking 6 NutriFeron at night. This, of course, is along with your other supplements, no sugar, enough sleep, good exercise to a sweat, detoxifying, getting good hydration with good water, destressing, and eating raw fruits and vegetables as a foundation of your nutrition. Dr. Bevacqua highly recommended juicing from a previous blog I left. While in Mexico, Suzanne and I ate so regularly and healthy and I took my protein and had my additional supplements to the Vitalizer like clockwork!!"

Doctors Telling Citizens What they Have to Do/Medical Paternalism for Profit

This morning I read where a bill is being presented to increase the pap and mammogram screening coverage for women in the proposed Health Insurance bill. The brazen woman who is proposing the bill says that if the doctor advises either, then the woman must have it done. Since when do adults allow ignorant government figures to treat us like children, so the doctors and pharmaceuticals can ensure their profits? This is like the vaccine program, which was laced with the term Mandatory, as if parents can't decide for their children or themselves, and the Government, (with corporate ties) takes over the place of Parent. Paternalism for Profit. What kind of stupidity and corruption has this government come to? How long will the suffering go on, before an absolute revolution takes place?

This reminds me of the 'Drug War', where the CIA plants crack cocaine in ghetto neighborhoods, and suddenly we have a huge BUSINESS of CORRECTIONS. The DEA has so many corrupt ties, and profits are like Christmas for a few, that the tax-paying citizen is destined to be the low man on the totem pole. No drug treatment or legitimate drug treatment offered, but the citizens are NAIVE enough to support $25,000 per year and up, per our sons and daughters behind bars. With no legitimate help offered the small percentage of sexual abuse victims with convicted perpetrators, our resulting drug and alcohol addicts can fuel the prison economy. Who is making money? What is the expense?

This reminds me of AIDS, where the HIV virus is created, (now bear with me and do your own research and thought) implanted in Africa and New York in the vaccines, and then the Pharmaceuticals become giant powers, dripping with grants for research, etc., and eventually can compromise economic systems by infiltrating rescue of African children, etc. Managing CANCER, AIDS, DIABETES, etc. after creating it with toxins and drugs and adulterated nutrient-deprived crops is quite the business.

Where are the ADULTS in this country, with logical, rational abilities for thought? Where are the scientists with a curiosity in patterns and theories?
First we are shocked (giving live syphilis to inmates for lab rats), enraged, but not outraged, and eventually with the wave of corruption, we have become apathetic and easy targets for a variety of experiments and money-making projects, from Aspartame to Birth Control Hormones, Coumadin to Blood Pressure Meds to Psych Drugs, while we march with pink ribbons.

What if Alzheimers, cervical cancer, etc. were nothing but a money-making agenda with voiceless victims? Worse yet, thankful victims for the failed synthetic 'wonder drugs' to keep us out of the rest home for a few months, but result in early death. Kind of reminds me of the movie, Soylent Green. What if Macrobid, the drug given to women to 'avoid' urinary tract infections was creating the cervical cancer, tipping the DNA to become erratic, creating squamous and/or adenocarcinoma or the chemicals laced in cigarettes which are found in the cervical tissues were merely symbiotic hands with Tobacco/Big Pharma companies and the silent Medical field, and all along the HPV vaccines which can kill or harm more women, Pap smears, cervical procedures, etc. were merely the bread and butter for 'helpful' medical personnel and their Pharmaceutical and Lab and Diagnostic -doctor-invested Machines? Do we have a right to know the 'goals' of a hospital? Like, how many heart transplants they are shooting for in the year? Do we have a right to know, or would it be good sense to know, who has financial interests in the Diagnostic Machines?

This Holiday season, my wish is not small. I am wanting balance to return to this planet. I want to see media policy enforced, with ALL men, women and children of BOTH sides listed as killed or maimed. I want pictures of the reality of war shared, so we can be emotionally intelligent, and begin to shape world policy. I want mothers of integrity to take over in Government positions. Communication is a pivotal point of power. I want the owners and interests of ALL media shared with the public. I want Education to become the unpolluted basis to galvanize the young to help the old mend what is broken. No law school to reinforce the incestual Bar Membership of judge and lawyer, but to dig our country out of the fraudulent label of Justice. I know this is a lot, but we are many, and our spirit invincible despite the numbing and dumbing. I want the 'lights' to go on for the rest of the year.

Note: I will be posting photos of the aging/dying process of a young woman who was tricked into taking Psych Meds, and manipulated by fear in that 'getting off the drug would make her go crazy', which is a Party Line of many 'medical personnel' and 'counselors'. I believe in your right to be informed.

Do Fabric Softeners Make You Sick?

Exposure can result from the outgassing of vented dryers or from treated
fabrics (e.g., clothes, sheets, towels), which are in close proximity to you.
Questions to ponder:

Have you been enjoying a walk in the neighborhood and found you have
suddenly fallen without realizing why?
Do you get a numb feeling in the side of your face -- and the doctors can't
find the reason?

Do you get a sudden onset of dizziness or a headache?

Fabric softeners, like other fragrant products, contain petrochemicals, used
in untested combination. These chemicals can adversely affect the central
nervous system (CNS) -- your brain and spine.

CNS exposure symptoms include: aphasia, blurred vision, disorientation,
dizziness, headaches, hunger, memory loss, numbness in face, pain in neck and
spine. CNS disorders include: Alzheimer's Disease, Attention Deficit
Disorder, Dementia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Multiple Sclerosis,
Parkinson's Disease, Seizures, Strokes, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Natural Solutions for Health vs. Flu Shots and Meds

Here is a fellow who teaches Medical Students, Dr. Stephen Chaney, and what he has to say about staying healthy. My best. Pamela

Hi Pamela,

Many of you have been saying to me:

"All I hear about in the news is shots and drugs. Is there a holistic approach for strengthening my immune system?"

My answer is yes! Here are my suggestions:

1) Start by eating a balanced diet composed of whole, unprocessed foods without a lot of fat and simple sugars. A great place to start designing a balanced diet that is perfect for your age, gender and activity level is

2) Get plenty of sleep. The experts recommend 8 hours of sleep a night, but a majority of Americans get far less than that.

3) Exercise on a regular basis. Both too little and too much exercise can weaken the immune system (You might have guessed that the problem for most of us is the "too little", not the "too much"). The experts recommend at least 30 minutes every day.

4) Maintain ideal body weight. Those excess pounds really zap our immune system.

5) Minimize your reliance on medications. Many common medications weaken the immune system (Just listen to the disclaimers in the TV commercials for examples).

But you must work with your physician on this. Once your physician knows that you are willing to do take personal responsibility for your diet and lifestyle, they will generally be willing to minimize the number of medications that they prescribe.

6) Focus on the positive. Studies show that optimists are healthier and life longer than pessimists. And the good news is that anyone can cultivate an attitude of optimism. For most of us it is a lifestyle choice - not something that we were born with.

7) Add a supplement program to assure that your immune system is functioning optimally. In the ideal world supplements wouldn't be necessary, but there are very few "saints" who do a great job in all 6 of the areas that I mentioned.

A well designed supplement program fills in the "gaps". We want to make sure that we are getting adequate:

- B vitamins and protein because our immune cells need to divide very rapidly when we have immune challenges.

- Antioxidants because our immune cells create lots of free radicals.

- Trace minerals, especially iron and zinc, because they are required by important enzymes of the immune system.

- Vitamin D because it is vitally important for a strong immune system and most of us are not getting enough.

- Probiotics (healthy bacteria) because "bad" bacteria and yeast in our intestines can weaken the immune system.

- Omega-3 fatty acids to modulate the immune system once it has taken care of the invading bacteria or viruses.

We don't need megadoses. We just need enough.

One final thought: A holistic approach to strengthening our immune system is not an "either - or" proposition.

The flu short is 66% effective in preventing the flu for people with a strong immune system and only 33% effective in preventing the flu for people with a weak immune system.

To your health!

Dr. Stephen Chaney, PhD
Shaklee Master Coordinator

Basics of Supplementation are:
Natural vs. Synthetic, 50+ yrs. old Company that has almost 100 published scientific studies on their products, spends over $250 million on quality testing, has a well-known scientific board and scientists on board and cutting edge products without the 'bad boy products' that are unproven fads. I recommend Shaklee nutrition products:

1. Vita Lea-with or without iron, Vita Lea Gold for those over 50.
2. Omega Guard fish oil-distilled to remove contaminants. Double the DHA and EPA of other brands.
3. Optiflora-Probiotic in a triple-encased pearl needing no refrigeration. Over 500 million live lactobacillus and bifidus beneficial bacteria for your gut flora balance. An immunity MUST!
4. Soy Protein-cold water washed, Non-GMO, anti-thyroid substance removed, 50% calcium added to neutralize soy's acidic nature. Clean, consistent plant protein without the saturated fat of dairy and meat, and without the hormones and antibiotics...

Shoot me an email to request the Common Ailments booklet for further custom recommendations.

Bone Spurs. Natural Solutions

Bone Spurs are painful, and are caused by a lack of calcium in the body, and Metabolic Acidosis from diet and stress, etc. The body starts to borrow from the calcium bank of bones and teeth. The protrusions from bone can press on nerves, etc., causing extreme discomfort and pain, like sciatica, etc. Here is a short story of one natural solution.
For other personal accounts of bone spurs, degenerative discs and arthritis, feel free to email me. You will probably find yourself in the collected stories, and know that there are solutions that don't include cortisone shots, etc. Cortisone and steroids cause cartilage disintegration, and other health problems, including unnecessary hip replacements down the road. Instead of treating the symptom, let's look at the cause and balance the blood chemistry.

My mother-in-law has (had) bone spurs on her spine along with
arthritis, diabetes, and degenerative disks. She was in extreme pain and went to many specialists. She received cortisone shots which helped temporarily, but the pain would always return. She was using a walker and was headed for a wheelchair. When the doctors told her that there was nothing else they could do for her, she FINALLY took my advice of 9 cal mag a day (3 -3 times a day) and with in a couple of weeks her pain was completely
Thanks to the cal mag, she has increased her bone density. I know this because, on several occasions, she has lost her balance and fallen in the kitchen on the ceramic floor. She never had any breaks or any bruises. She is 76.
Hope this helps

Anne and Doug Siloy/Berea, Ohio

Click the title and links above to purchase Osteomatrix, which is Shaklee's calcium. They have a chewable CalMag also, without the Vitamin K, for those on Coumadin blood thinner.
I suggest the Basics: Vita Lea multivitamin/mineral, Soy Protein, Optiflora (probiotic to bring colon health and build the immune system) Osteomatrix or CalMag, and Vitamin C for help to absorb the Calcium and fight colds and flu. Alfalfa is also VERY HELPFUL in building bone and reducing arthritis pain, etc.. Alfalfa has microminerals to build healthy bones.

Immune Boosting and Winter Wellness

First, a personal note and items of business: This is the color scheme I have played with this summer, and will finish in the spring, when the paint won't bubble with the Autumn moisture here in the 'Pocket in the Woods'. This photo reminds me of my Blueberry box still waiting to be constructed, the Birdhouses that I'm going to seal so they'll last longer, and other Autumn tasks that wonder where I have been.

Last night I went to dinner for my 55th birthday, had halibut at Stanford's, and saw Julie/Julia which I loved. Don't be surprised if I share more of the recipes I try, and maybe sneak in a few poems or other projects amid the health and nutrition pieces.

I recently listened to Dr. Sandra Bevacqua, who is a Molecular and Cellular Microbiologist, a tumor researcher, and has a business helping people overcome cancer. She told of a woman who came to her with breast cancer, that had metasticized into her brain, lung and pelvis who was given 3 months to live. Dr. Bevacqua started this woman on nutrients from Shaklee, and 6 months later, her cancer had not grown, and she was still on the planet. It was not until she began using Citriboost which has the pre and probiotic in it (must refrigerate after opening) and the Optiflora pearl which is the probiotic (no refrigeration needed, as it's triple encapsulated) that the cancer began to disappear.

It seems the immune system prioritizes the digestive area, and needs the flora to become rebalanced so it can focus on other areas of the body. Every tumor receded and left except for one small spot in the pelvis. This story does not end well. The woman had 'friends' that convinced her she did not need Shaklee products, saying they were too expensive, etc., and she quit taking them. This woman also resumed eating her simple carb diet with sugars. The cancer returned, and she died.

What Dr. Bevacqua found was the Citriboost swished and gargled, and swallowed in the oral cavity, helped the head, mouth, throat, esophagus, down to the stomach, building the integrity of the mucusal tissue, while the Optiflora repopulated and balanced the flora in the colon, as it gets past the hydrochloric acid of the stomach. Dr. B said this Citriboost/Optiflora combo was wonderful for Candida symptoms of vertigo, thrush, itching or ringing ears, sinusitis and sore throats, and even was helpful for hiatal hernias, while the Optiflora built the immune system from the stomach down into the colon.

Current research is showing Candida is allowed to survive, or is protected or covered by heavy metals, making it difficult to get rid of it. Candida can evolve into the fungal form and travel almost anywhere in the body. It causes a host of problems, including depression and spacy thinking, and can interfere with the immune system, promoting cancer.

I listened to an RN who has a business of testing blood and urine for heavy metals concur with this. She said one source of poisoning was: many mattresses need to be covered or encapsulated to prevent gases and flame retardent chemicals that produce heavy metal poisoning from being absorbed into the skin and lungs, etc. Pre and post-testing have absolutely proven these problems and the solutions. Chelating or removal of heavy metals is an important step of treating Candida overgrowth, and this woman used Shaklee's Vitamin C-at least 4 a day, 2 in the AM, and 2 at night, Alfalfa which is full of microminerals and is called the Broom of the Colon, Herb Lax to remove toxins from the intestinal tract and body, and DTX to cleanse the liver.

Anyone interested in the Health talk from Sandra Bevacqua or the Registered Nurse with the blood testing/heavy metal poisoning removal business and information are welcome to contact me, and I will send you the links and passwords so you can listen or order the tapes.

You can also request my FREE Health Questionnaire that shows by symptom what a person is deficient in. A blood panel at your physician (hopefully you have a Naturopath you can trust) can also show these nutrient deficiencies. Without adequate vitamins, minerals, protein and essential fatty acids, your body cannot function well, and can break down with disease and illnesses. The immune system is made from about 90% protein.

I recommend Shaklee's Energizing soy protein, in plain, vanilla or cocoa, as it is a clean plant protein, is in consistent amounts, has been cold-water washed, with the harmful thyroid substance removed, not processed in aluminum vats to create toxins, or spray dried and heated to severe temperatures nor alcohol-washed, and never gets above room temperature. Shaklee also adds 50% calcium to their soy protein, as it is otherwise an acidic substance after processing. Soy milk is not high in Isoflavones.

Dr. B eats up to 100 grams of protein a day, half of which is soy. She corrected her LDL/HDL ratios from the 1-42? ratios to the norm of 1-2.4 to 1-4 in 2 weeks. Her Cardiologist told her she would have a fatal heart attack within the year, before turning 40 years old, with her 1-42 Cholesterol ratios, and her family history of heart attacks at that age. She had normal blood work in about 2 weeks with Shaklee's soy protein. That is what made her pay attention to Shaklee as a scientifically-sound 50+ year company with integrity, testing all their products for contaminants, and she fully recommends their products. No other products had helped her. Her cardiologist attributed God as bringing her LDL/HDL ratios into line, but her General Practice Doctor now refers her own patients to Dr. Sandra Bevacqua for health help with nutrition. Dr. B educates doctors and health professionals on nutrition all over the world.

You can also contact me for a FREE personal health and wellness questionnaire, instructions for a Gentle Colon Cleanse or links to health talks for your education, and those you care about.

What Do Sinus Infections, Itchy Ears, Vertigo, Urinary Tract and Yeast Infections and Prostatitis Have in Common?

Ever feel like this dog looks?

Sinus infections, itchy ears, dry scalp and skin rashes, vertigo, urinary tract and yeast infections, prostatitis, thrush and skin fungal infections all signal an overgrowth of Candida. We all have this bacterium or yeast, that can develop into the fungal form, send its roots through our intestinal walls, and leak molecules of our food into the body cavity, setting up many allergies. We have health issues like the above mentioned ones, when Candida becomes overly abundant, or imbalanced in our bodies.

So, what keeps this Candida in balance with our good flora, and what feeds this fungus? Remember, Dr. Mercola interviewed the Italian Oncologist who says cancer is white, or fungal based. The more we tip towards acid, the closer to disease and death we become. We cannot feed ourselves sugar, coffee, soda, processed food, simple carbs like balloon bread and pasta, and dairy and meat with hormones and antibiotics- without having it affect our ph balance and health. The European Union won't import our beef, because of the half dozen or more hormones and antibiotics American growers add to their herds. Make bread, and watch the yeast grow exponentially with the sugar or honey that you put in the water or bread mixture. The growth of the yeast makes the bread rise. Sugar and carbs feed yeast, fungus and cancer. Cancer cells have many times the insulin receptors of normal cells.

I had a pelvic oncologist who bragged to me that he didn't listen to the hour nutritional training while in medical school. He handed out Twinkies to his cancer patients. He is now dead of his own oral cancer.

One of the reasons I use and promote Vita Lea multi-vitamin/mineral is it's natural and breaks down quickly to be used by the body. It also is coated in folic acid, and has 100% biotin. Biotin keeps Candida from developing into the fungal form, and helps to manage it. It also has 45% calcium, which besides being good to build our bones and teeth, is an alkalinizer. Countries with the most centenarians, (living to 100) have water supplies rich in calcium. Remember, fungus and yeast love acidic environments.

I just listened to a presentation on the Power of Soy, and the difference of Shaklee's cold water-washed soy by Dr. Sandra Bevacqua. In this educational CD, she related how cancer patients who are on a nutritional program suddenly made great healing progress with an added probiotic. Those with itchy ears, white tongues and throats, and sinus infections, etc. can benefit from a Shaklee product called Citriboost for the mucosal membrane of mouth, throat and esophagus, and the Optiflora probiotic pearl that gets into the colon. It was recommended in the past to just suck on an Optiflora pearl, biting it open, and letting it bathe the mouth and throat. Citriboost can be added to a little orange juice, water, etc. and gargled and swished, before being swallowed, and can make a huge difference in managing Candida from the head and oral cavities to the stomach, while Optiflora probiotic can manage balancing the flora, feeding the colon lactobacillus and bifidus. Products that have many kinds of bacteria, are often for marketing purposes only, and not scientifically confirmed, like Shaklee takes the time to do, and writes its scientific peer-reviewed published studies on.

Optiflora probiotic changed my health. The indigestion, gas and general malaise are gone. We have about 5 pounds of flora in our 'gut' that often is overwhelmed with the bad flora. The colon can get covered in placque also, and not absorb what nutrients we are taking in. Supplementation is essential for optimal health, as is a Gentle Colon Cleanse once or twice a year. I use Herb Lax and Fiber Plan to keep the pipes clean, remove toxins and cholesterol, and kill parasites with the herbs in Herb Lax. Diet and exercise in sunshine also help. Oxygenating exercise and Vitamin D and a good diet are important to maintain optimal health.


There's a urine/toxic test for around $100 to test for heavy metal toxicity: Candida is a symptom says Dr. Sandra Bevacqua of heavy metal poisoning. She has found that people with Candida usually have heavy metal toxicity. If they can test for that and use IV or oral chelation (oral is less expensive but takes longer to get rid of it. Approx. $20-50 depending on your source, or what you use, like Cardioflow or EDTA). Naturopathic Dr.s usually offer this process and products.

What does Vitamin B-12 Deficiency Look Like?

On Dr. Joseph Mercola's site today, he discussed B-12 Deficiency. You can go to the address below for the whole article. I pasted an excerpt below, also, and will comment on H Pylori, which by the time a person is 80, 40% are infected by this parasitic bacterium we contract mainly from cats, but also from dogs. H Pylori is only one of the reasons people become Vitamin B-12 deficient.

I promote a balanced approach to B vitamins, and using a natural complex vs. high doses of B's that can imbalance the rest. The H Pylori lives in the esophagus and stomach, and can be tested for with swallowing a held string, and culturing it. Medical docs usually give a couple of antibiotics for H-Pylori. Some are resistent to them. There is an acid in olive oil that can help to kill or decrease their numbers, so use liberally in salads and cooking, but I would turn to MMS which creates no resistance, and goes after blood-borne pathogens. (I will add a link later).

I like Shaklee's B Complex, which is made from a plant source, not animal, and is balanced, natural, and tested for contaminants. Their Vita Lea is my choice also of a multivitamin, and is coated in folic acid, so it unravels in the stomach where it's needed for absorption, not bound up in some synthetic bedpan bullet. It also has biotin in it which keeps Candida from growing to the fungal form. Candida is a normal resident in our intestines, but if it becomes imbalanced by antibiotics, birth control pills, hormones, medications, and an acidic environment, it can become a health hazard leading to urinary tract infections, yeast infections, prostate problems, allergies and cancer.

After treating H Pylori, I would recommend the following protocol:
Any antibiotic means killing good bacteria. To repopulate the 'gut' with bididus, lactobacillus, etc., use a good probiotic. I recommend Optiflora, a triple encased 'pearl' that actually gets past the hydrochloric acid of the stomach, to repopulate the colon with good bacteria.

If you don't go the medical route with antibiotics, in my researched opinion, I would do the 18 day Hulda Clark parasite cleanse, then MMS, then the gentle Colon Cleanse (request by email:, and then make sure you are on your own health program: good diet, exercise with 20-30 min. of sun, and natural food supplements. There are good, better and best in this department, dependent on your budget. We do not get all the nutrients we need from our diets, and when we are deficient, our bodies need more to catch up.
A Wellness Survey is sent by request, to show deficiencies in nutrients by symptomology. (

Here's the address for Mercola's B-12 article:

“Vitamin B12 fuels many of your body’s most important functions, literally from your head to your feet. Among them:
proper food digestion and absorption
healthy nervous system function
formation of red blood cells
proper circulation
healthy immune system function
mood regulation
mental clarity, concentration, memory function
Your body was simply not built to function without a sufficient supply of vitamin B12 throughout its lifetime. I can’t overemphasize the importance of insuring you are getting adequate B12.
What are the Odds YOU are B12 Deficient?
The above article primarily addresses B12 deficiency in the elderly, but you shouldn’t assume you are not at risk just because you’re under a certain age or eat foods containing vitamin B12.
It’s true if you’re over 50 or a vegan/vegetarian, your chances of being vitamin B12 deficient are higher than average. But no matter your age or diet, if your body isn’t absorbing the B12 you’re giving it, you, too, could be lacking in this vitally important nutrient.
Surprising Causes of Vitamin B12 Deficiency
Since vitamin B12 is present in natural form only in animal sources of food, strict vegetarians and vegans are very high on the list of those who can expect to be B12 deficient.
Other sources of vitamin B12 deficiency include:
Inadequate production of stomach acid -- The older you are, the less able your stomach is to produce the hydrochloric acid necessary to release B12 from the food you eat.
Long-term use of antacid/antiulcer drugs -- Since hydrochloric acid is a requirement for the absorption of vitamin B12, it follows that if you’re taking an antacid, your stomach won’t be able to digest B12 out of your food. This class of drugs includes H2-receptor antagonists like Zantac and Tagamet, and proton pump inhibitors like Nexium and Prilosec.
Use of the drug metformin for Type 2 diabetes -- Use of metformin (brand names include Glucophage, Glucophage XR, Fortamet, Riomet, and Glumetza) may inhibit your B12 absorption, especially at higher doses.
Infection with H. pylori bacteria -- If you suffer from a chronic Helicobacter pylori infection, you might be B12 deficient.
Coffee consumption -- Four or more cups of coffee a day can reduce your B vitamin stores by as much as 15 percent.
Gastric bypass surgery
Exposure to nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
And the LEADING cause of vitamin B12 deficiency: food-cobalamin malabsorption syndrome -- This condition results when your stomach lining loses its ability to produce intrinsic factor, a protein that binds to vitamin B12 and allows your body to absorb it into your bloodstream at the end of your small intestine.”

Ripples on the Lake. September 11th and more...

A few days ago I heard from some fellow lake walkers, that the Vernonia Lake Park Host, Bill Yeo saw a cougar down by the sewer ponds, on the trail going to Anderson park. Another walker friend had seen one between Rose and First Streets when he moved in several years ago. We are a pocket in the woods, here in Vernonia. Coyotes roam at night, rabbits hide in the briars, eagles and ospreys hunt on the lake. Deer frequent my back yard at times, and tonight on the way home from a trip to 'the valley' (Banks, Forest Grove, Cornelius, Hillsboro and Beaverton) I spotted two deer at the Museum on Bridge Street. They were pretty things. One was in the front yard, and another in the back. Where there are deer, there are usually predators.

This news made me a little leery about walking by myself. I have a new walking partner, and I'd much rather wait for company when going around the lake.

In other news, the gas prices are up around $3 a gallon, and the food prices are squeezing families all over this nation. There is a sense of dread and anxiety, especially as credit card debt grows, jobs are lost, pensions are cut or lost, and foreclosures grow. The haves and have nots are farther apart it seems. There are more predators than cougars in these parts. The petro dollar, greed of a few, and those hungry for world domination are ruining our country. Many Americans have been apathetic for a long time. Freedoms have to be treasured and valued, not taken for granted.

I watched a senior citizen on YouTube speak of the proposed healthcare plan. He said instead of knee and hip replacements, cancer and heart treatments, the elderly will instead be given 'death counseling'. He said "Shame on you", and reminded those that we have trusted to serve in government that he started working for 25 cents an hour, and was proud of what he did, and he started putting money into Social Security, which system has been looted, along with Medicare. He reminded the young and those in power that they are there, because of the elderly. They stand on the backs and shoulders of what he and others have worked for.

Here is the result of other research I have done lately. It is worth discussing:
There is free energy out there, that has been kept from mankind. We are about 100 years behind where we should be, according to Dr. Steven Greer, who is speaking all over the world, sharing his Disclosure Project, that we have had contact from other planets and our government has known for years. He trains thousands of people to communicate telepathically to Extra-terrestrials, and then tapes the 'visits'. Listen to him on YouTube. Put his name in the search box. There is an era of peace and evolution coming, that cannot be stopped. Not by secretive shadow governments, the Bilderbergs that have unlawfully and illegally met with our world leaders, including the Clintons and Obama, all buddies, all thinking they are protected, elite and apart from mankind. The plots and plans of martial law, fake induced bio-wars and pandemics with looming forced vaccines, Blackhawk or Blackwater? and Northcom secret armies which we have financed unknowingly by the billions are all on record. WHO and UN plots to reduce the population to 500 million, mind control, television brainwashing, chemtrails dumping barium and other chemicals to thin a population that believe in a Race against Breast Cancer, and wearing pink ribbons, lab-created swine/avian flu strains, along with the HIV virus they already put into Hepatitis vaccines which were given to men in New York and Africa. September 11th was an inside job, and the proof of chemicals used to set the charges to bring the buildings down is documented, including building WTC#7 not hit by any plane, and announced by the BBC news about 20 min. before it actually happened. Criminals are bumblers, too. It's all there on the alternative news and internet and YouTube accounts. The problem has been many do not want to be bothered, or want to know. "Someone" will do something about it.

With a planned economic collapse, and an orchestrated need for martial law, a New World Order will be pushed on the peoples of the earth. Our government has been hijacked by the Federal Reserve and it's banker/Bilderberg cohorts, getting rid of any in their way, like John F. Kennedy. Once martial law is in force, no one will be allowed to leave the country except perhaps the privileged. On YouTube you can see actual footage that there are FEMA internment camps all over America, stacks of plastic multi-corpse coffins, cement rooms with gas lines to them, and the National Guard is being given job offers for internment camp work. You can see the actual job notices filmed on YouTube. Even weather can be orchestrated and used as a disaster weapon. I watched a Congressman read a bill for martial law under a list of circumstances, and most of it was "classified", with blurbs like "flesh-eating virus", etc.

What has happened to Americans, who like the frog in the pot of water, have reached a deadly degree of apathy and laziness? We have allowed our families and selves to be drugged by the Pharmaceutical pimps, who have created a symbiotic parasitical bond with our 'trusted' medical personnel. Trust is earned, not given. Rational trust has no place in what has transpired. Our food has been so processed and adulterated, irradiated, imported with DDT that was banned here, but sold for profit in other countries growing our fruits and vegetables, and even small-brained chickens refuse to eat the GMO grains offered them, but we have fed our children Aspartame in soft drinks and 99% of gum, and a huge list of foods, high fructose corn syrup, and other 'convenient' chemical cocktails to cause obesity, diabetes, and cancer.

I was at the dentist a while back, and the hygienist told me that there was flouride in the white fillings. She said she was for flouridating the water, so the level could be controlled. Some areas have too much flouride she said, and the children get flouridosis or flourosis that shows on their teeth. Who asked me if I wanted an industrial waste, a poison permanently placed in my mouth, to bleed into my body on a continual basis, for my immune system to fight? How is that 'controlled' exposure? The mercury in amalgams is bad enough. What is causing all the osteoporosis in this country? It seems to me, we run our own story of The Emperor's New Clothes. Even chicken farmers take the chlorine out of the water for their 'investment', so the poor birds live long enough without arteriosclerosis and other disease, to produce enough eggs for a profit.

Why are so many systems of our country dysfunctional? Where are our true leaders? I voted for Ron Paul, not some poor embarrassing thug like George Bush, or a young 'unknown' groomed Obama, whom I heard recently encouraging Americans to accept the 'findings' of 9-11. What is sad, is having a ballot without a third choice: NONE OF THE ABOVE. TRY AGAIN.

On this September 11th, I'm posting this to say we are in dire straits. Break the televisions, or use them only for selected DVD's and videos. Cancel the service. You are getting controlled news anyway, and do you really want your children to act like the characters creating our supposed social 'norms', or think taking the plethora of drugs pushed, is an American way of life? Do you know how many are on Coumadin? The right flu shot, and they can hemorrhage inside. Some side effects of this now well-used rat poison are blood clots, gangrene and cognitive decline. See:

Coumadin Side Effects Poll Results
Have you experienced side effects?
Yes, Severe 95%
Yes, Mild 5%
Yes, Minor 0%
No 1%

HRT causes blood clots. Garlic thins the blood, and fish oil makes the RBC's slippery so they don't stick together, and relaxes the blood vessel walls. No side effects. No body ever had a deficiency in Medications, but vitamins, minerals, protein, essential fatty acids and complex carbohydrates are another story... Medications deplete your nutrients and set you up for disease. We have become a 7-11 generation. We want instant gratification. Medical doctors have been enablers, and have profited with their 'scrips'.
Americans are the most constipated nation, with our diets of dairy and meat, which are full of saturated fats, hormones and antibiotics and no fiber.
Looking to normalize your cholesterol? Use Shaklee's Fiber Plan to pull out cholesterol, Herb Lax to get rid of toxins, and Soy Protein which will help normalize your LDL/HDL ratios and maintain blood sugar levels.
My uninvited, and unapologized-for suggestions:
Don't get toxic vaccines or allow your kids to get them. Get informed, and stop being lazy, riding on the backs of others, and contributing to the downfall of our entire nation. Exercise every day and get some dignity and oxygen back into your brains and bodies. Check out eating with whole foods, like recipes on Stop buying processed foods and fast foods, and spend time with family and neighbors. Get a little garden growing, even if it's in pots, or sprouting grains. Start reading in books and on the internet. Get a hobby. Learn a new language or take up dancing.

Don't be used to harm others by being ignorant. WE ARE MEANT TO BE A PROTECTOR TO OUR FELLOW HUMANS. NO CALLING IS HIGHER THAN THIS. LOOK AT A BABY'S FACE AND SEE YOUR OWN HEART. WE ARE BEINGS OF LOVE AND LIGHT. Think in ways of including others, and helping others, and making your life count. Make this world better because you have been here. Make it a more hopeful world. What we do impacts not only those around us, but our entire nation, planet and solar system. Absorbed consumerism is not happiness. Chemical and sexual addictions don't allow for joy. We need you to be AVAILABLE. People need you. Wake up America!

Postscript: We have lost a great humanitarian. Dr. Hulda Clark, a well-known scientist and researcher who unselfishly gave her life and intellectual property to others, has died. She showed many that parasites in human hosts wear down the immune system and can cause cancer. She also did work on AZO dyes, which were outlawed in the 50's, but still remain in various products including white caps for teeth, and hair dyes, and was searching for and creating natural hair dyes for women without the aluminum and other harmful metals and chemicals. She said aluminum was absorbed within seconds into the brain. Many are suffering and dying from Alzheimer's. She also tested over 3000 of her patients for about 70 parasites. She said she never met anyone with cancer who did not have parasites. She also said everyone with Diabetes, had the pancreatic fluke, or Eurytrema. Her simple remedy using 3 herbal ingredients: cloves, wormwood and green Black walnut hull in a tincture or freeze-dried, treated 100 different types of parasites, and was affordable for most of mankind. You can find it on for about $16.99 plus shipping. It's an 18 day cleanse. MMS is a good mop-up cleanse also, that is from another selfless individual, Jim Humble, who found that sodium chlorite when activated with citric acid, killed most blood-born pathogens. He has been instrumental in curing thousands of cases of malaria with two treatments. Malaria is caused by a parasite injected into the human body by a mosquito.
After killing parasites and pathogens, one must detox gently, and then build the immune system with food....supplements. With our diets, lifestyles of stress and lack of exercise, most people have some serious educating and cellular rebuilding to do.

About Dr. Hulda Clark. Died at 82 after 5 years of fighting a spinal cord injury. She will be missed.

Business Note: There are only a few AirSource3000 air filters left. When winter flus, mold, virus and bacteria hit, I am glad the UV plate on my AirSource3000 has the capacity to draw them out of the air and kill them. Contact me for close-out information. Not available after Oct. 1st, or when supplies are gone.

Air Filter Comparisons. Clean Air Pt II

Here is a comparison chart for Air Filters. Though it's from 2001, it's still usable, although the Member price is $611, and modules are $60. Contact me for a special closeout offer from my business leader.

Perhaps the best way to figure out if purchasing an air or water filter is right for you, is to read reviews. I've read and heard great reviews for Shaklee's AirSource3000, and have borrowed one a few times, until I just purchased my own. The friend who owns one has had hers for approx. 9 years. The proof is in results, and how people feel, especially those with allergies and asthma, and how the air smells.

I put the AirSource 3000 in a friend's car overnight as he had smoked in it, and his dog had been in it. It smelled like a new car the next day. A room I rented out, smelled like a locker room. AirSource cleaned it right up. The fruit room downstairs can smell moldy, and the UV plate on AirSource kills the mold. I like the 3000 sq. ft. capacity of the AirSource, and that I can use it to spot clean small areas.

Cleaning carpet, inside car surfaces, etc. with Basic H and Basic G (cleaner/deodorizer/disinfectant) applied separately, would be advisable, if necessary. For instance, a pet box that needs changing, or dirty carpet or brown film from nicotine, or dusting and vaccuming all need to be addressed to maintain fresh air, as they generate smells, but the odor, mold and dust-killing capacity of the AirSource is remarkable.

(Basic G is mixed 3/8 tsp to a pint bottle of water. It costs 27cents a gallon, $17.30 qt. bottle of concentrate, Member pricing.)
Tough on Germs
Bacteria, fungi, and viruses can wreak havoc on your family's health and safety. Used as directed, Basic-G tackles over 40 of these pesky microbes, including several animal viruses. That makes it an excellent choice for use in the kitchen, bathroom, or pet area. In addition to being economical - one quart makes up to 64 gallons - it's also EPA registered.
(Clorox has approx. 6% sodium hypochlorite, and purportedly, contains lye, which for grooming pets can make them very ill. Basic G is a better alternative.)

There is a small amount of ozone generated from this model, but it is EPA approved. I want to research more about ozone, as I've read about it being used to oxygenate blood to fight cancer, and I've seen a cleanse using olive oil call for ozonating it first. They used fish tank equipment to do it.

There are only a small amount left in inventory. After October 1st, Shaklee will no longer offer AirSource 3000, but will still service the unit for 3 years. I'll buy several extra UV plate modules for the annual replacement, and the protective carrying case, as I will probably loan it out to help others. After another flood last year in Vernonia, where I live, the black mold from sweating winter windows in temporary trailers, along with dust and spores floating everywhere as people cleaned out soggy fiberglass insulation, lumber and furniture, etc. made many people very sick. Antibiotics don't do much for fungus in the lungs. Everyone here could have used an AirSource3000 for their homes, and especially with the stuff that got tracked into the relief centers.

Basics: Clean Air and Water in your Home

I read the following article this morning from Dr. Mercola: Link below...

In this Mercola Newsletter article, Dr. Mercola warns against wasting money in areas that are unnecessary, that hurt the wallet.
His list includes: Extended Warranties, Gym Fees, Fast Food Runs, Cell Phone Apps and Ringtones, Late fees, Landline Extras, Rental Car Insurance, Computer Software, Unlimited Texting, and…..
“10. Bottled Water
Invest in a filter pitcher or install an inexpensive faucet filter. You’ll still come out ahead.”

Since the charcoal-carbon filtered pitchers and faucet filters make acidic water, I want to share with you my Point-of-Use Water Filter. The casing is made with Surgical Stainless Steel, and it uses a large filter of coconut shell medium. The resulting 22 cents a gallon for the first 1000 gallons, and 9 cents for the next 1000 gallons, (Replacement filter costs $90.80 Member Price) gives me alkaline water, with almost 100% reduction in chlorine, volatile organic chemicals, crystosporidium cysts and gardia, etc.

When I tested the Brita Filter, Culligan water, and Reverse Osmosis, they were more acidic than plain tap water. Reverse Osmosis is good if the water is flouridated, but it is acidic water.

Every morning, I run my cold water in the kitchen for a couple of minutes, and then I pull the diverter button on the faucet to filter my water. After another 1-2 minutes, I fill up a freshly washed gallon jar with wonderfully clean water. I feel spoiled. During the day, I can tell how much water I’m drinking, and I know that I’m not absorbing some (estrogen) hormone-mimicking Bisphenol A from plastic. Since the regulations of bottled water are the same as tap water, I politely say, NO THANKS. I am also not contributing to global warming with the shipment of water from some other place, or filling landfills or oceans with plastic bottles.

Since I’m a single gal, and 1000 gallons will mean about 3 years of use for me, from my $220 investment, I have shared a gallon of clean water most mornings in the summer with my visiting birds, in my bird bath. They LOVE it! I clean the bath out with a few drops of my Shaklee Dish drops, rinse it, and give them wonderfully clean water. I spoil my birds -especially the frantic parents running nurseries from various bird houses on my place. I watch them drink the water, and younger red-winged blackbirds, etc. splish-splash happily in the birdbath.

There is an on-counter unit which I have, and an under-counter Bestwater Water Filter available. I chose the on-counter, as it doesn’t involve connection by a plumber. (Undercounter unit is $283.20 Member Price –$19.95 1-time Membership) I feel like I’m in the 70’s, but my body appreciates less toxins. Chlorine as you may know, contributes to metabolic acidosis, clogging our blood vessels and tipping us towards cancer and disease. Even chicken farmers filter out chlorine for their flock, to get their money’s worth, instead of having their egg producers croak before their time.

It's not only the chlorine that is toxic to us, but its byproducts that cause cancer. Bestwater takes them out, so we don't have to add them to our immune systems to handle.

“The compact design of the countertop model takes up little space on your counter, but belies its impressive capacity to produce up to 1,000 gallons of filtered, great-tasting water. It's certified by NSF International to significantly reduce dissolved lead and over 40 volatile organic compounds that may be in your water. And like the RO System II, it reduces cryptosporidium cysts, which have been recognized as one of the most common causes of waterborne diseases within humans in the U.S. (According to the CDC*).
This advanced carbon filtration system installs easily, providing instant, clean, delicious water for just pennies a day. The MTS2000 system is ideal for the majority of homes with municipal water supplies. It carries a Five-Year Warranty.
*Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”

Link to Order: Copy and Paste:

For a limited time: 30 days or until the stock is gone, Shaklee’s AirSource Air Filter is being offered by my Business Leader for a great price. I’ll post the comparisons with other air filters. Though the ten year technology is considered old technology, it works and is most cost effective for whole house or spot treating cars, rental property after moveouts, etc.
Once they are out of stock, they are gone, though the annual UV plate module will be available afterwards. ASK FOR DETAILS.
For Asthma Sufferers: Clean Air, Non-toxic cleaners which don’t trigger asthma attacks and natural food supplements are the solutions to rid yourself of this problem. Drugs all have side effects. If you build the immune system and take away the toxic triggers, you will find natural solutions.

On Prostate Cancer, Placebos & Apathy

RE: August 26th posting from:
SUBSCRIBE: send an empty Email to-

I follow Robert Cohen’s comments and researched articles on his Notmilk Yahoo forum. I am infuriated at the many men who have become prostate cancer victims, given money-making cancer-to-lymph-node spreading biopsies, radium seeds, radiation, etc. in a growing business. The AMA/Pharma symbiotic parasites have not only managed to gain government support for their profit schemes, they squash all other natural help and voices simultaneously through Codex and the corrupt FDA. Eventually their kingdom will topple. Meanwhile, too many men drinking hormone-laden dairy, set up for Candida by drugs and diet, and predisposed for prostate problems by age and culture, stay unaware of products with antioxidants to bring down PSA in 6 weeks, protect against DNA cellular damage, others that build the body’s immune system, and PREVENT and HEAL.

Below are my comments RE: Aug. 26th 2009 Notmilk Posting:

Interesting how this Pharma posting is in sync with my own thoughts this morning. How has this monster called the AMA, and Pharmaceutical companies been allowed to erode our personal freedoms, and good sense, until they euthanize people with their wares, and even work with our lawmakers to mandate some worthless, population-thinning vaccine? How have Americans gotten so apathetic, that they allow their family members to get on a Whitman's sampler of drugs, like Coumadin, a rat poison, to 'thin' their blood, to 'avoid' clots? How has the ADA gotten away with putting flouride in the white fillings, and mercury in the amalgams for so long? There isn't anything else offered at my dentist. And at the grocery store with irradiated, GMO, processed, adulterated, DDT-imported food is truly an experience of the frog being boiled in the pot, one degree at a time. The pink ribbons to support the 'War' on breast cancer is a naive symbol of a complacent society. I personally am very angry at the money made on a duped and poisoned public. We have had to settle for what is least harmful to purchase, while our air and water quality produce chemical combos for genetic warp. Ever gone down the cleaning aisle at the grocery store? The off-gassing combos are 'unknowns'.

I already knew that sexual abuse had gone unchecked, and our prison populations had become quite the business, the legacy for our children marred beyond words, and debt has gone wild with the political wars set up by inside jobs like 9-11 and other greed.

Many people think of fleeing our nation, as it is corrupt in all facets, from religion to government to our apathetic, overweight anti-depressant, non-exercising, television-surfing waste of time Pepsi/Coke sappy 'war'-advertising osteoporosis-producing Ativan-popping, what's-wrong-with-being-unavailable to our families and neighbors w/ alcohol and pot-smoking public.

Our whole nation has become a 'placebo' of 'not doing anything'. Or so it seems. Or is it the ant and grasshopper scenario? Thank Goodness for the few ants like and Mr. Cohen's relentless information war with one corrupt industry. Where is the voice of the people, or is it too late for Lemmingsville?

Have a better day. Pamela

Summer Salad

I recently joined Twitter, which is a challenge with it's 140 character limit, as you see my novels, below. Nevertheless, it will help me connect with others.

One of the recipes on looked good, and I had the cukes and cherry tomatoes, basil in the garden, etc.
Here the link is below:

I didn't have couscous, so I used quinoa. I cooked 1 c. quinoa and 2 c. filtered water for 20 min. on low heat, covered, (like cooking rice) and let it cool.
Add: fresh cukes. I had some small crisp babies fresh from the vine...I striped the peel a bit, cut off the ends and cut them into pieces. (Thank goodness for friends who share their garden produce. My daughter is hoping for some 'extra' green and yellow wax beans today, from my garden today when we meet for a Sunday walk together.)
Cherry tomatoes and yellow pear tomatoes cut in half and added.
Either a red or Walla Walla onion, or green onions added to the mix.
I sliced a half can of black olives.
1 can drained garbanzo (chickpeas) beans, or some frozen (defrosted) you've cooked up ahead of time to have on hand for quick hummus recipes.
Basil or cilantro

Here's Heidi's www.101cookbook recipe for another quinoa salad dressing she has on her site:
I used almond butter instead of tahini, as that's what I had on the shelf.
I used lemon juice and a bit of lime zest....
OR: you can use the olive oil and lemon/lime juice of the link's recipe, above...

Tahini Dressing:
1 garlic clove, smashed and chopped
1/4 cup tahini
Zest of one lemon
scant 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons hot water
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt

Next recipe I'll share is one for zucchini soup. It's from a chef I know of, who has been cooking for a long time. It's a blended soup, with a hint of bacon or ham. Makes me want to make some cornbread or bread sticks, or a homemade loaf of french bread with poppy seeds on top....

My Scappoose home is for sale. You can find it on Portland's Craig's List under Scappoose Country real estate for sale. I've downsized to Vernonia, and am even thinking of selling this one and traveling until I find a place with enough sun and a college I could take some classes in, and perhaps teach some. The winter commute to civilization over wet or icy winding roads does not appeal to me. I've thought of getting a room mate for this house, and keeping it, as the spring and summer through fall here is wonderful. We'll see what shakes. I have a lot of work to do. I want to start another blog about my coming books. One is called When Love is Not Enough, and chronicles the struggles and destruction of a family, hopes and dreams with the price of sexual abuse. I want to also write about America's treatment of their elderly, the health"care" system, etc. My poetry and recipes will be sprinkled in some of them. I have a daughter who says I'm like a mirror, challenging others to be as open, which is hard for some. My belief is that we are our brother's keeper, and hiding from our problems only complicates life. If we strive to live honestly, and share what we have and know with others, we perhaps will leave the planet better than we found it.

I'm an Independent Shaklee Distributor not only for income, but because their natural supplements work, and everyone needs to be using their non-toxic green cleaners in their home. This company has been making green cleaners for a better safer home and planet for over 50 years. The Get Clean kit comes with everything you need to trade out your poisonous carbon-producing (all the water shipped instead of concentrate, and packaging clogging our landfills) cleaners with healthy alternatives, made with corn and coconut surfactants, etc.

The $149 Get Clean kit (one of Oprah's favorites) replaces $3400 worth of product. The question is: If I can show you Green non-toxic cleaners that are less money, and work as well or better, would you be interested in changing brands? The only product not costing less, is the Basic Laundry liquid, made of corn and coconut surfactants, that cleans your plumbing pipes instead of clogging them and isn't dumping phosphates in our already compromised waterways. I use 1 oz. or 2T. in my laundry loads. It's also a stain and grease spotter and handwashables laundry detergent.

Keep 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills.
Eliminate 248 pounds of greenhouse gas.

"A customer came to buy her
third bottle of Stress Relief Complex for her daughter. It is the only product her daughter
takes. The mother reported that her daughter has suffered terribly with
Migraine headaches and Psoriasis. Both have disappeared since she started
taking the Stress Relief Complex."

Many of the health problems we have are linked to stress. To balance, we must plan breaks amid our work, or just take off and relax to see nature's beauty. This summer my sister Alison, from Utah, and a friend-Alex, from Fort Worth, Texas have come to Oregon for various reasons. It's been a great excuse to show them the beauty here, and relax away from the 'to do' list, which is very long.

Shaklee's Stress Relief is taken once a day, and is made from Ashwagandah, an herb used in India for many years. This herb relaxes a person without drowsiness, creating alpha waves. It can help the adrenals, which get worn out with chronic stress. I take Stress Relief when I know I'll be facing a very hard situation, or when my neck starts to crack, it's so tight. I also take Cor-Energy, which not only normalizes the stress response, but it normalizes my energy with the panax ginseng.

I want to include more stories on migraines in this post, below. Notice the different products, that point to different causes and triggers. I have several good articles on the types of migraines, and how to eliminate them without drugs. Request them at

My best, Pamela

Optiflora & Migraine Testimony

I have had migraines since the age of 12 that were associated with my
menstrual cycle. They were predictable and terrible. During pregnancy and
lactation I did not have a headache (I was either pregnant or nursing for
eleven wonderful, headache-free years).

I thought that menopause would cure the problem, but like 20% of migraine
sufferers when menopause hit I had a headache for a year and a half. I
really couldn't stand living! I tried everything and a completely restricted
diet which eliminated all processed or aged foods helped to give me several
days a week headache free. Imitrex was life-changing for me as it would
knock a headache down, but at the cost of $139 per nine pills it was
cramping to my finances.

I added Optiflora to my Shaklee nutrition program simply because I have
always used health food store acidophilus and am totally convinced that it is
a symbiont to the human body and must be present for digestion. After
taking Optiflora for just two days I attended a party and ate cheese and had
a beer...a SURE headache within four hours, but I had my Imitrex in hand. I
was ready! make a short story long... I can eat cheese, I can eat
anything except foods with MSG...I can't believe that this product made an
immediate change in my ability to digest foods, especially dairy foods,
without a migraine.

Dear Diane,

This is just a short note to let you know how thrilled I have been with
all my Shaklee Products. They all do exactly what they claim---AND MORE!
I started on the shaklee Protein powder to increase my soy intake. I had
read that soy helps alleviate migraine headaches. The protein powder has
dramatically decreased my headaches! I wish every migraine sufferer knew
about this terrific product. As a result, I now use much less Imitrex and
can count on many more days of wellness. (Now I'm counting on "rolling
the clock with the new Enfuselle Line...)
Thanks again Diane....and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Sincerely yours,
Linda Pellegrino/WKBW-TV


Passing on a testimonial through Val Setterholm

It was in the Meijers produce department that Kenny popped the question,
What do you recommend for headaches? He asked, as he glanced at his
wife, Phyllis. I remembered the results in the past when people would
take 4 B Complex, 4 Calcium Magnesium, and 4 Lecithin for their
headaches and the headache would be gone within 10-20 minutes. So of
course, that was my suggestion along with -- Ïif it isn't gone in that
length of time, repeat the amounts.

It wasn't until quite a while later that I learned the end result of
this encounter. Phyllis McNew woke up on September 22, 1998 with a
horrible migraine headache from which she vomited repeatedly. Prior to
this migraine experience, Phyllis used to wake up many days with a
headache that would eventually wear off after a couple of hours.

She went to the doctor that day, thinking he might want to do some tests
to see what brought this on. He simply called in a couple of
prescriptions and said to call back later if she wasn't better. The
medicine killed the pain but when the medicine wore off, the headache
was still there. After several weeks, Phyllis called her doctor back
hoping that this time he would run some tests.

His next suggestion was ÏI can give you a prescription that will work, but
you will need to take it the rest of your life.

Not liking that idea, Phyllis sought another opinion, thinking it might
be sinus. The second doctor did x-rays but her sinuses were clear. His
recommendation was prescription strength Motrin -- 600mg 3X daily. Just
like the previous medicine, the headache was still there when it wore

On Nov. 13th we were having a dinner at our Shaklee Express --- Jim
and I were in the kitchen dishing up lasagna and rolls, people in the
dining room were sharing Shaklee result stories and I couldn't believe
my ears when it was Phyllis' turn!

After our encounter at Meijers, Phyllis apparently took to heart what I
suggested and after having had a headache for 5-6 weeks she decided to
start taking 4 each of B Complex, Cal/Mag, and Lecithin. She related
that she took this amount every 15, 30, or 60 minutes for 1 1/2 days at
which point the headache completely disappeared. Phyllis also said that
another very important part of the answer was a lot of prayer.

Now Phyllis may take one or two rounds of the supplements daily, and if
she feels a headache coming on, she immediately takes Ïthe formulaÓ and
the headache vanishes. And the really great news is she no longer wakes
up with headaches like she did in the past

Dear Mike,

I have a neighbor who has suffered with migraines for years. They were
reoccuring everyweek and she would spend a couple day a week in bed. She
was also having problems with depression. I had spoken with her about
Shaklee over the years, but she was not interested. Finally last May she
that she was ready. I gave her: Soy Protein, Vita Lea, B-Complex, Vita
C, Calcium Mg., GLA, EPA, Lecithin, Optiflora, and Moodlift for her

We went out of town and I did not see her for almost a month. When we
came home she came over and said that she had not had a migraine since she
started with Shaklee. She is off all her medication, including her
medication. She said that it is the first time in several years that she
has felt like doing anything.

She has had a few little headaches, but no migraines. She is so excited
that she is sharing it with friends who have migraines and other health
problems. She has cut back on some of the supplements. She has also become
more aware of her diet. She ate many sweets and other snacks that were not
too healthy. I hope this has been of some help for you

High Energy Wellness Program

Order online at and then sign up for your One-time $19.95 Membership at the end of the process for 15% off all Retail prices.

The basics for optimal energy and health are:
1. Vita Lea natural multi vitamin/mineral w/ or w/out iron
Vita Lea Gold-w/ or w/out Vitamin K for those over 50. This may be the only natural, bioavailable Mulit-vitamin with a choice of Vitamin K or not, for those using blood thinners.

2. Energizing Soy Protein in Vanilla, Cocoa or Plain, or Meal Shakes. (Great for kids or meal replacements for elderly.) We offer Whey Protein, also.

3. B complex-a non-animal source of balanced b vitamins especially important for nerve transmission, and numerous bodily functions and protections. Important for vegetarians, those under a lot of stress, those drinking alcohol, and those on certain medications that deplete the B vitamins.
(Medication-Induced Nutrient Deficiency sheet available in earlier blog postings.)

4. Cor-Energy for normalizing energy and stress response. For those with High Blood Pressure, since Panax Ginseng can cause an increase in blood pressure in some, and a decrease in others, the Stress Relief complex or Garlic and Fish Oil may be used instead.

So, What Can We Eat?



I promised some ideas for healthy eating choices, long ago. My summer 'to do' list is very long, as I'm playing catch-up from being in Houston, Austin and New Orleans last summer. My blog has suffered. Being a single gal with two houses keeps me inundated, but I have been successful in creating a couple of raised bed gardens to supply fresh greens and other veggies. It's nice to have my own organic vegetable section, especially when Whole Foods or New Seasons markets are 40 min. away. I plan to put in a 4"deep path of crushed rock, with heavy black road fabric underneath, and framed by buried landscape timbers and 2x6" treated wood. I'll sprinkle the crushed rock with other varied rock, with a final sprinkle of Montana Rainbow rock on top. I hope the crows don't come and steal the colorful rock, like they have when I put it in the bird bath for decoration. Not only will this border hopefully keep moles away from tunneling under my garden (I put 1/2" hardware cloth stapled beneath each raised bed to keep the varmints OUT of my gardens) but the absorbed sun will cause heat to be given off which should extend the growing hours and season of my garden, somewhat. I saw a garden wall made of stone in a magazine once, that extended the growing season and hastened the growth of nearby garden plants, with longer periods of heat.

I found it exhilarating to finally get my artsy pea trellis fastened, and strung with green garden twine, until, despite my faint memory of this coming fact, the twine stretched. I asked a young man at an area Hardware store what kind of twine they had that wouldn't stretch, and he led me to to the green twine he said was requested by another woman for her peas. The first rain or watering, and the nicely strung tight twine was loosely swaying in the breeze. The peas are still climbing, but I felt like I was 12 years old again. Hadn't I used this stuff before to tie up tomatoes, before I switched to a green kind of non-sticky tape that seemed less cutting and rough? Hmm. That's okay. Life is a school, and we have to laugh at ourselves, and just pick ourselves up, after big or little mistakes. Even though I love the neat pattern of twine, and the homey look, I believe I'll try wire next year. I tend to be fussy like an artist at the finished product. A neighbor came over just after I strung part of the trellis, and marveled that it "looked like a picture".

So, where then are the recipes? Well, not so fast. I planted spinach in half a row, spinach mustard in the other half since I had never grown this, (they were up first, and are really healthy and easy to grow) and split red chard and kale in another row. A row shared with yellow and greenbeans, and my peas make up my first garden, with some lemon cukes to climb up the slatted trellis you see there. This remnant of a 'pot drying rack' (no, not mine) was something I found and saved from a previous country home of mine.To finish them, (one is for the yellow crookneck squash in the second raised bed) I want to seal them with some kind of oil. I've thought about linseed or tung oil, or spraying them with a clear acrylic spray before the cukes and squash start climbing, and want to find the most natural solution. The beds themselves are redwood from an old water tower from Boring, Oregon a friend shared with me. They are sealed with linseed oil and fastened with angle iron in the corners, with the hardware cloth underneath. You have to watch that the linseed oil has no additives, as some of them are cancer-causing. I lined them both with road fabric, to help them last a bit longer, but I'm not sure that is a good idea, either. I saw a video about AZO dyes, and how they were outlawed in the 50's, but that with the manufacturing process, they still get in our products. They are in the hair dyes, and Dr. Hulda Clark was researching to develop some natural dyes so women stop harming themselves. Just the heavy metals like aluminum are unhealthy in hair dye. Aluminum goes into the brain cells within 20 seconds of coming in contact with our permeable skin.

Okay, enough educating. Be sure to research this for yourself, as it's important to know. Ignorance is usually not really bliss. Dr. Clark said who would have known that the white caps on teeth would have black AZO dyes in them, from a polluted manufacturing process. She also said in the middle of cancerous tumors, they find Azo dyes, which seems to deserve some attention. I am unsure if the road fabric has these dyes. Finding raised bed materials that are organic and non-toxic is a challenge. I don't like the 'treated' wood, nor the chemically treated landscape timbers, or a lot of lime from cement blocks, etc. Stacked rocks, or open raised beds might work, but not with my mole and deer issues. Here, rock is expensive to buy.

What do we do with greens? GREEN SMOOTHIES, SOUPS, OMELETS, IN BEANS AND LENTILS, STEAMED 2-3 MIN. AND EATEN WITH A LITTLE BUTTER, RICE, RED WINE, OR OTHER VINEGAR OR LIME OR LEMON JUICE and salt and pepper. I recently baked a quiche, with onion, garlic, cheese and a little leftover ham on the bottom with a bunch of 1" chopped washed greens in a baked pie shell (shell not necessary). Pour on top: 4 eggs beaten, w/ 2 c. of milk or half and half added. (Recipe called for 3 cups, but that would have been toooooo much.) Oil the pie plate. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40-50 min if in a glass pie plate, or 400 degrees if not. You can add mushrooms, olives, diced red, yellow, green or orange bell pepper. Serve w/ sour cream dollop and garnish with olives, cilantro, etc.

I even cooked up a recipe of tacos made of greens. It was delicious!

Here's a customized recipe from the following web page for the tacos:

"Greens Tacos

This recipe is one of my favorite breakfast recipes, but of course it would work at any time of day. Please note the amounts given are approximate, I don't measure anything when I make these. You could use more or less of any one of these ingredients. Serves 2-3

3/4 pounds greens, cleaned well and sliced into approximate 1 inch pieces
2 teaspoons cooking oil
2 chopped garlic cloves, or another alium family, whatever you have on hand (onion, green onion, green garlic, leek.....)
Pinch red pepper flakes or cayenne
2 Tablespoons cream cheese
4-6 small corn tortillas or 2-3 larger flour ones

Heat the oil and add the garlic, having the greens ready to go, and cook garlic for about 30 seconds. Then add greens and cook until bright green and wilted, add red pepper (and salt and black pepper if you like). Take off heat and stir in cream cheese. Heat tortillas, divide filling among them. Eat and enjoy."

***I found the combo of red pepper flakes with cayenne and the cream cheese was really tasty. I steamed the greens after sauteing for 2-3 min. by putting a lid on top temporarily, and used the corn tortillas. What a simple, great recipe. Thanks

Now, for all the folks that want to go vegetarian: Make sure you take a good B Complex, and use a good soy protein to prevent deficiencies. Everyone on this site should know which company I choose. Click the upper right picture of my sweet little Granddaughter to order. The B comp[ex is from a plant source-and the soy protein is the best on the market, from the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in the US.

A friend asked me if it's true men can grow 'breasts' from consuming soy protein. Soy is a phytoestrogen, as are yams, and several other plant sources. The weak estrogen bonds to cell receptor sites and prevents the more dominant natural form from bonding, creating a safety net against prostate and breast cancer. You can consume too much ice cream, or just about any food. The Japanese RDA for protein is almost twice as much as ours, and even though they smoke as much, they are reported to have less heart disease, prostate cancers,etc. They consume a lot of soy. They know you have to cook it lightly to remove the anti-thyroid substance, and they also eat fermented soy.
It is recommended to have 1-2 servings of soy a day, for a protein without the saturated fat and low fiber of dairy and meat. 28 grams would be 2 servings of Shaklee soy protein. It comes in Plain to use in cooking or stir into water, etc, or Vanilla or Cocoa. Personally I would be more concerned about consuming inorganic or irradiated dairy, w/ the growth hormones and antibiotics added.

There is so much to comment on, I could write a novel. Questions welcome.
I'm considering a change in this blog format, as my Mac laptop shows the blog in a long, narrow strip which requires a lot of scrolling. I'd like to find a more vision-friendly format.

Sometime this week, I'm going to try putting Vicks paper towel or rag pieces stuffed into the mole runs. I'm also putting either bird netting or nylon netting over my newly planted cherry trees the deer seem so enamored with. I had 4 in the yard yesterday. They love to nibble on the blueberry bushes. I parked the car in front of those.

Just a comment on soil: I found some aged manure, but it had sat for 2 years, and was so dry, like silica, that instead of just planting in it, I learned the hard way I needed to mix it in. The water doesn't want to easily soak in. A Shaklee friend who cleaned houses for 25 years, 5 years with toxic products, and then 20 years with green Shaklee products, saved a dried office tree and several plants in a commercial account by putting 2-3 drops of Basic H into the plant water. Basic H makes water wetter, and is made of coconut and corn surfactants. She uses it for bathing her cats or dogs with fleas, putting a few drops around their neck, and sudsing it in after they are wet. After a rinse, the fleas float on the water, dead. It kills the eggs, also. It takes the oils and waxes off the bug's body, and drowns them.

I'm going to share a salsa and guacamole recipe on my other blog:
Rice and beans combined, are another good source of protein. Served with a salad, cornbread, fresh fruit, or other combos it's an easy, light summer meal. I read where an avocado had as much usable protein as a small steak.You can also make cilantro and other greens' pestos for noodles, and various dishes. See Heidi's site at for pesto recipes and ideas.
Happy Summer Eating. More to come...
