Factory or Fresh?

I don't normally put anything disturbing on my blog, but I saw this posted on Facebook today and after I watched this video, I thought everyone should see it. The visual is so much more powerful than the written word. I truly am speechless....

I really can't even verbalize a comment about that video, but I  would never want to leave you with such a depressing sad state of affairs. I feel like the best way to bring change is by focusing on, and promoting what you want, not what you don't want.
And what I want in my life is nutritional healthy high vibrational food. Not what is seen in this video. I want food that is beautiful to look at and delicious in taste.
I try to buy most of my fresh food from local farmers. I want to know where my food comes from. I go to the farmers market every Saturday to get all of my produce. Also, I love the fact that at our Whole Foods it has a whole wall dedicated to local farmers. They have a picture of the farmer and what products are sold in Whole Foods by that farmer.

Here are pictures of the type of food that I eat. As I said about the video, pictures speak louder than words.



I believe that we all have the ability to make choices for our bodies and what we are putting in them.

What are your food choices?

Until next time,

Stuck in Dallas

Wow, what a week. I was on a flight this week that gave me a lay over in Dallas, TX. What was supposed to be a 45 minute layover turned out to be a 12 hour layover. According to everyone that got there before me, there was a major storm that blew threw with 65 mile an hour winds. They cancelled the majority of the out bound flights after 8:30 that night. As soon as I landed I got an email from the airline telling me that my flight had been cancelled. When I got off the airplane I talked to a customer service rep and they told me that I had been re booked on the 7:00am flight the next morning. I immediately started calling hotels. Not only was I calling, but my husband was calling too, even though he wasn't with me. Between the two of us we must have called 25 hotels.
No one had a room. Everyone that arrived earlier than me swooped them up.

So here I was in Dallas with no flight, no hotel, and no phone. My phone had died, and the only plug to be found was in the women's bathroom in the baggage claim.

I have never had to stay up all night in an airport. But that night I found out what it was like to be stuck and stay up all night. The airport looked like a war zone. They must have passed out 1000 cots and blankets. People were piled up everywhere. They were laying on cots, chairs and the floor.

I will have to admit that when I looked at my watch and saw that it was almost 3 am I was saying to myself, I can't believe I am actually sitting here.

At this point I wanted to feel sorry for myself. But instead, I just started thinking about all of the people in Hurricane Katrina. I seriously couldn't imagine being in the New Orleans Super Dome on a cot with thousands of people for weeks.
 I immediately changed my attitude and began to think of all the things in my life that I was so thankful for. You can't stay in a bad mood when you are giving thanks for the blessings in your life.

But I was so happy to see the sun come up!!! Around 5 I left the concourse that I was in and rode the tram to the concourse my flight was departing from.  I still had 2 more hours. But I could see light at the end of the tunnel. There just happened to be a Starbucks right next door to my gate, and needless to say I was the first in line waiting for it to open. I grabbed a big coffee and went and sat down next to this girl who was going to the same place I was, except she was on standby and I had a confirmed seat. She had been there all night too just like me but she had gone outside around midnight because it was so cold in the terminal and she couldn't get back inside to  her gate until 5 because the security lines closed at midnight and didn't reopen till 5am. Another reason to be thankful. At least I was inside sitting at a gate.

I  brought Marine Phytoplankton and Chlorella tablets in my purse. About every 2 hours I took a handful of tablets and a stopper of Marine Phytoplankton and drank lots of water.  Those 3 things and a change in attitude, definitely helped me make it through the night.

Right before I got on my flight I went into the women's bathroom and there was this beautiful mother with her baby that was around 10-11 months. I struck up a conversation with her and commented on how amazing her baby was for being in an airport all night. She smiled and thanked me and told me that she was just trying to get to Florida, her mom had passed away the day before and they were just trying to get to the funeral.
Whoa.....clearly, that put it all in perspective for me. I absolutely had nothing to complain about.  I walked out of the bathroom, cried and gave thanks.

Hopefully from this experience I have learned even more that we all go through the same things in this life on some level. It's how we handle the situation that determines the outcome. We can either feel sorry for ourselves, complain and blame or we can take responsibility for our own actions and find a way to be happy in the midst of what seems like difficult times. I am truly happy for this experience. It showed me what I was made of.

I finally made it to my destination, happy and tired!!

Until next time,

Body PH-Why it Matters...

I don't normally blog on any kind of sickness or diseases, but after I read this article, I thought it was worth re posting. I read quite a few sites on Dr Otto Heinrich Warburg 1931 Nobel Prize Winner.
He discovered the real cause of cancer in 1923 and received the Nobel Prize for doing so in 1931.

THE ROOT CAUSE OF CANCER - Noble prize Winner Dr. Otto H Warburg . Dr. Warburg has devoted his life to study the causes of cancer.

"All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception. "Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous." Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

Biochemist Otto Heinrich Warburg, one of the twentieth century's leading cell biologists, discovered that the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH, potential hydrogen, in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which constitutes an "acidic" state. Warburg investigated the metabolism of tumours and the respiration of cells and discovered that cancer cells maintain and thrive in a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2. He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen. Higher pH, which is Alkaline, means higher concentration of oxygen molecules, while lower pH, which is acidic, means lower concentrations of oxygen...the same oxygen that is needed to maintain healthy cells.
In 1931 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this important discovery. Dr Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for cell physiology at Berlin. He investigated the metabolism of tumours and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells. Below are some direct quotes by Dr Warburg during medical lectures where he was the keynote speaker:

"Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”

In his work The Metabolism of Tumours Warburg demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.” "All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous."

Dr. Warburg

has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr. Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.
This article was taken from a site-ganodermareview-
We have so much access to products that help alkaline our bodies and cause our bodies to have a normal PH.
1. Water
2. Marine Phytoplankton
3. Spirulina
4. Chlorella
5. Lemons
6. Leafy Greens
7. Root Vegetables
8. Cucumbers
9. Broccoli
10. Cabbage
11. Green Tea

These are just a few of the many alkaline sources.

Also their is a product, Cell Food that you can add to your water and it will increase the oxygen in your cells.

I am sure that we all want to live healthy happy lives. This is just more great information to help make that happen.  Google Dr Warburg and read more about it.

Until next time,
