Do Drugs Save Lives?

I’ve heard people say this.  It really doesn’t seem to be a thought out comment but one which “everybody knows”.  I will sometimes hear it when I recommend a natural medicine or remedy. 

My question – Why would you take a petrochemical pharmaceutical instead of a natural medicine?  The answer – Because drugs save lives?


Well, when a person has neglected their health to the point where they areabout to succumb to a bad infection due to a compromised immune system, or succumb to heart disease, or any other aliment, it will save their life – well it will extend their life. But, that is the point at which you need to start building health. And actually building health is a good idea to do before you need to have your life saved by taking drugs.

But my question is why you would take a drug when there are so many alternatives that are safe and work just as well.  Why are people so afraid for their health that they would get a “flu shot” or take a “mold” based product (better known as penicillin)?  What is the matter with their immune system?  Yes, the flu can be very detrimental to someone with a  compromised immune system. But what happened that their immune system became compromised.

The missing step is maintaining health, and building health if it is compromised.

I haven’t known many medical doctors who will give you any advice on being healthy other than to tell you to exercise and to eat a healthy diet.  A medical doctor works to help you maintain your disease once you have one, so it doesn’t get any worse.  They are not in the business of building health.

So, maybe the right approach is building health and not eating what has been referred to as S.A.D. – the Standard American Diet.  

Find out what your body needs to be healthy and make sure that you get all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in the foods that you eat. Or supplement if you can not get enough.   Eat for your health, not for your taste buds.

What is the Essential Oil Called Thieves???

This is a special blend of oils.   Why is it called Thieves?

The story of this blend of oils all centers around one event, the Bubonic Plague. During that time, there were four thieves who went from house to house to rob those who had died of the plague. After these thieves were captured and tried, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to rob them but not be affected by the illness. It seems they had formulated a special combination of oils.

Thieves offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste.

Why would you want to use products with Thieve’s oil blend?

There are two things that create health. One making sure you get the 40 nutrients that the body needs in order to function properly. And the second, to not put any toxins into the body that will lead to the body not functioning properly. Thus you can ditch and replace any toxic chemicals in your house knowing the value of these oils.

Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house and use Thieves cleaning products that are without harsh toxic chemicals.  It is known that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of these oils.

Antibiotics – natural or not?

How did “antibiotics” so freely dispensed come about?

Well, Alexander Fleming, Scottish physician, biologist, pharmacologist and botanist returned from holiday on September 3, 1928, he looked at his petri dishes containing colonies of Staphylococcus, bacteria that cause boils, sore throats and abscesses  He found something unusual on one dish. It was dotted with colonies, save for one area where some mold was growing. The zone immediately around the mold (later identified as a rare strain of Penicillium notatum) was clear, the mold had secreted something that inhibited bacterial growth.  He found it was capable of killing a wide range of harmful bacteria.  And thus, Penicillan was created.  It was not till 1941 that it was developed enough to be used on a human.

It is now 76 years later, do we use anything other than mold, which is a type of fungus actually, and ….. well, the basis of the “modern” day antibiotics is still mold.

Now, even the CDC is telling people to look for fungus when the body is not getting well through standard medical treatment.

So, do you take these chemical antibiotics/mold or do you find something natural.  There is a host of things you could be taking.
