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.

Improve Your Health by Getting Toxins Out of Your Home

There are so many ways for toxins to sneak into your body – food, drink and through the skin.

We live in a toxic environment. The air you breathe can be polluted with chemicals (some places more than others), the toxins can come via processed foods (just look at the labels sometimes) and in the household products that you clean with. Cleaners that you wash your dishes with, cleaners for your bathroom, bedroom and kitchen, and even those you brush your teeth with.

8 Hidden Toxins: What’s Lurking in Your Cleaning Products?

We wanted to forward this article as one of the two ways to create “bad health” is to not get all the nutrients your body needs and to put toxins into the body. This article really goes over all the ingredients you don’t want in your cleaning products. It’s very interesting.

Jessie Sholl gives different suggestions on what to use that is safe and we also have a recommendation for products that not only are not toxic BUT was created when years of research indicated that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of some essential oils. That is at the end of this article.

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.

Plant Medicine? What is “Aromotherapy”?

I’ve heard and seen things about Aromatherapy. I never paid much attention to it and felt it was creating nice odors that people wanted in their house or felt it relaxed them.   

Then I found out that in 1937, a french perfumer gave that name to essential oils which is actually traditional plant medicine.   

Now that was something I’d be interested in finding out about.  It is now called essential oils and is becoming popular again.  Plant medicine has been around for thousands of years and was the only medicine until the 1880s when the drug companies were formed to make pharmaceuticals.  

So what can plant medicine do?  A lot of things, and its safe and works well.

Why do the essences of the plant create change?  And what can it do?
