Having any kind of garden can help you and your health
There are a lot of wonderful ways that any gardening can help in YOUR health
Listed below are just some of the wonderful reasons to do any kind of gardening but in my lifetime I have had acres of garden with a neighbor and we canned beans, made ketchup, froze peas, grew jalapenos in Iowa, grew beets, and my Dad tried to grow celery in my garden. We planted lots of potatoes and even did corn. But now I do container plants – have beautiful tubular begonias and some other flowers but because my condo does not get enough sun I cannot do vegetable or fruit.

causes cytokine levels to increase, which in turns boosts the
production of serotonin. The research as conducted by Bristol
University and University College London.
As we age, gardening helps to stimulate the brain.
Gardening helps in physical exercise, social interactions,
cognitive learning and reducing risks of dementia for people in
their 60s and 70s.
YOU and CHOICE
The choice is a central part of life. How to make a good Choice for
The right, power, or opportunity to choose.
The choice is about YOU and choice is personal and choice effects
others deeply. And the choice YOU make today will affect all the
other choices in the years to come as YOU age. Even a small
choice has ripples. It may not be noticeable but I still effect more
than just today.
Learn to make the correct choice for YOU and to learn from the
YOUR life is guided and defined by the choices YOU make
Know and appreciate those good choices are harder to make than
Accomplishment of an important goal always starts with an
Many of YOUR choices are under the control or influence of
others. This should not be but is a normal thing.
Be a good thinker – so that your can make good choices.
Good choices are generated in our minds
Decisions that you make today started with a choice back when.
Choose the good things – integrity, peace, love, forgiveness and
keep choosing the POSITIVE things in life so that YOU will get
where you want to go and
What Does Life Expect from YOU?
I have had, over my lifetime, quite a few in my family that has
had terrible addictions. Whether they have been from alcohol or
drugs – both have been very bad upon their life.
From my observation and I believe many phycologists will agree
that when a person with an addiction crosses the line to being
called an addict – the person’s development stops at that time
and until the can get over that addiction the maturing and
development will always be there and in their life. That person’s
choices will not be positive or in their best interest or their family
or friends best interest. The choice for an addict is always about
feeding the addiction – that is their #1 priority. Everything else
takes second in their life.
For those of us who are not addicts – choice has an obvious and
immediate moral significance.
Decision-making is something all of us need to learn to do. And
to master decision-making skills and making good decisions
depends on several factors:
Person’s developmental stage/age
Idea of right a wrong
What the decision-making process entail.
Starting young to learn to make choices is not too young. I tried
to give my children challenges so they could make a choice and
learn how to make the correct with our family values.
Never give a child more than 2 choices – let them make the
decision and how to choose for them.
As we age we know how to choose and make better choice’s
because we know SELF better and what values we are living by.
YOU are in charge of how much nutrition YOUR body needs
Because YOU are the only one with YOUR unique body.
So, gear up and have courage about:
The 4 key nutrients your body needs:
- Saturated Fat
And of course, the big ones:
Vitamins & Minerals
Because YOUR nutrition and nutrients are different than anyone
Else’s nutrition and nutrients YOU need to know about YOU
And that is what this website and only this website helps YOU
Learn about YOU. Especially, the podcast talks about the
Unique YOU with all your characteristics
Look at food that provides nourishment for the body to do
What YOU need to do in life so that:
What Does Life Expect from YOU?
YOU will know and grow
Substances which provide energy:
Energy is not a nutrient but food energy is important for
providing energy for YOUR daily activities.
Protein, fats, and carbohydrates are converted into energy in
different quantities. Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients
for the body but are not converted into energy
Energy is required to fuel body processes and physical activity.
Fat contributes to energy intake and helps you absorb is vital
Vitamins, therefore a healthy diet should always contain a certain
amount of fat.
Saturated fat is predominately from animal sources
Unsaturated is predominately from vegetable sources
Too much-saturated fat can raise blood cholesterol and can
Increase risk of heart disease. Intake should be no more than
Your daily recommended intake-LEARN what YOUR Intake
Should be-YOUR Uniqueness.
Sugars are carbohydrates that provide the body with energy, our
body’s fuel. They occur naturally in fruit, vegetables, and dairy
foods. Try not to use anything with man-made sugars in them-
almost any amount of man-made anything will put YOUR body
into the disease mode.
I have already done a blog about how important salt is to our
body – refer back to that blog.
Only use unrefined salt like the blog talks about – STOP buying
Any other kinds of salt – for YOUR best interest.
Important for the growth and repair of the body’s cells and for
It can also be used to provide energy. Some good sources of
protein: fish, meat, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt are
Vegetables based protein include legumes, soybeans, baked
beans, kidney beans chickpeas and lentils, nuts and seeds.
Choose protein-rich foods that are low in saturated fat.
The main source of energy that fuels our body and everything it does,
even thinking. They are sugars and starches. Try to each natural
carbohydrates found in fruit and some vegetables, dairy foods.
Limit man-made carbohydrates that are made in laboratories and
that, as YOU age, will create problems in your digestive system
and add fat to your structure.
There will be several topics in today’s blog:
Like I have said over and over again here in these blogs is that
I do prevention against disease; against cancer, diabetes,
arthritis, and any other disease, any autoimmune disease is
really any disease plus inflammations of anything in the body.
My goal is to never have any of the above. I had already
become hypothyroid in the 1980s and have been determined not
to have anything else that would cause me any disease. So far,
I have not had any other disease besides that which being
Hypothyroid is enough because one is more susceptible to
cancer, diabetes, and heart disease being hypothyroid so I take
care nutritionally of my body.
Since each of us is unique in body structure with genes and
DNA plus a mired of other factors you need to feed your body
nutrition that will keep you from disease and this website gives
YOU the tools to know your body, mind, and spirit to keep SELF
Healthy while you age.
You need to know how much of each you body needs but
be sure you are putting into your body the best quality you can
afford anything because You are in control of YOUR body and
whether it gets any disease or not.
I believe I would not have gotten hypothyroidism if I had known that
Iodine was the one thing my thyroid runs on and my body was
running out of Iodine.
Below is a list for nutrition that YOUR body needs:
When you eat foods that contain protein, they are broken down in the body into amino acids. These amino acids are used to build and repair any muscle tissue. This is great for those who are physically active or exercise regularly. You are able to recover at a faster rate than if you do not consume protein. Every tissue in your body is made up of protein and you need to consume enough through your diet to replenish it. Protein is also needed to help your immune and nervous system.
Gives you energy to function throughout your day. Good carbs
Can be from vegetables and fruits. When carbs are ingested your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin. Insulin helps the carbs to be stored in the muscles or as fat. Stored carbs in the body are also known as glycogen. They are an energy supply and help to achieve better fat loss but help in overall physique.
Without fats, you will not be able to survive. They keep your body warm during cold weather. Fats lubricate joints and keep your muscles loose and mobile for good workouts.
Personally, I eat Irish Gold butter which is an excellent fat, I eat cottage cheese not a lot but a little. I eat beef which has some good fat.
I stay away from bad fats – anything man-made is bad fat or anything else for that matter.
Natural fat is good fat, man-made and processed fat is bad.
Vitamins and minerals,
I make sure I also get enough vitamins and minerals. B-complex
Is very important. I drink Yerba mate tea-250 minerals from south
American. Because I drink some distilled water I take Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for another good dose of minerals.
Always, enough – not too much and not too little. I have 2 types
Filtered water at home-a PH alkaline water filter and a distilling machine for water and that is all the water I drink from those 2 sources.
If YOUR body is not in alignment, it can cause all sorts of
Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain
Foot, knee, hip, and back injuries
Muscle atrophy and weakness
Impingement a nerve compression
Carpal tunnel syndrom
Just a note: my body got out of alignment when I did not go to
the Doctor when I sprained my ankle and eventually had to have
both hips replaced. So do take note that it does happen when
body is not in alignment
To solve the problem, you first need to pinpoint the cause. Most
Postural deviations occur because the muscles that work to hold
A joint in place are imbalanced. One muscle group will be too
Tight and the opposing muscle group will be too loose or weak.
Here are 5 things to helps keep body aligned
- Work on your posture
Pelvis, rib cage and skill are aligned on top of each other
- Do exercises that promotes stabilization
Strengthen core muscles of back and abdomen
- Practice yoga
Promotes healthy spine and efficient movement
- maintain a healthy weight
overweight puts stress on joints and muscles
- consider chiropractic care
working on spinal alignment
3 Exercises that will help alignment:
- Upper back and shoulders;
Standing arm circles
This exercise engages the shoulder muscles, which, in turn
Helps to stabilize and strengthen the muscles of the mid-
Spine, resulting in less low-back pain.
Stand straight, feet hip width apart. Raise your arms so they
Are extended out to your sides at shoulder level. Palms up
Place the fingers into the pad of each hand, thumbs pointed
Behind you. Squeeze the shoulder blades squeezed and
And your arms raised at your sides, rotate both of your arms
Backward in a circle of about six-inch circumference. One
Set of 40 circles. Then, palms down, thumbs pointed
Forward in a six-inch circle. One set of 40 circles
Statiic back knee pillow squeeze
This exercise promotes pelvic stability by supporting the
shoulders and spine as you engage the pelvic muscles and
extend the mid-spine.
Lie on your back with your legs up over the seat of a chair.
Place a pillow between your knees, and hold it with your inner
Thighs. Extend your arms out to sides at 45 degrees with
Palms up. Gently ssqueeze the pillow with knees aand hold 1
Second, kepping upper body and abdomen relaxed. 3 sets
Of 20 squeezes.
- For the pelvis airbench
Promotes proper function of hips and stabilizes the pelvis.
Stand with your back against a wall with your feet and knees
Hip-width apart. Walking your feet away from the wall about
1-1/2 feet while sliding body down to a seated position
pressing lower back against the wall. Allow arms to hand
down to side. Keep weight on heels. Hold the seated position
for 1-2 minutes
These are relatively simple and fast exercises to keep your body
In alignment. Keep doing these and set up to do these 3 -4 times
a week and your alignment will stay forever
…Movable parts of the same – which is SELF
Each can be addressed separately, but what affects the MIND, affects the BODY, and affects the SPIRIT.
So we can talk about the pineal gland here in the MIND but we can also talk about it in the BODY and SPIRIT.
Do you know how important the pineal gland is to YOU?
This tiny organ regulates your daily and seasonal circadian rhythms, the sleep-wake patterns that determine your hormone levels, stress levels, and physical performance.
Pineal gland is a small, rice-size, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ that sits alone in the middle of your brain at eye level.
Fluoride (the bad kind of fluoride) will make this gland harden, resulting in less melatonin being produced, thus disturbing your wake-sleep cycle.
Below are some ways to help clean the pineal gland:
- Iodine – I take nascent iodine
- Calcium bentonite clay drink
Some of the ways to activate the pineal gland are:
- Sleep in darkness with no electronics in bedroom
- Meditation-directing energy to this highly sensitive organ
Children in the United States are reaching the age of puberty at earlier ages than in the past – a trend that carries health consequences, including a heightened risk for breast cancer.
Some evidence indicates that fluoride and it effects on the pineal gland could be a contributing to this trend.
Cities are now finding out that the fluoride that they are buying to put into city water if not a good fluoride and may, not only affect pineal gland but also IQ – research has been done in different countries. And damages bone and may increase hip fractures in the elderly. Fluoride may cause bone cancer, research by National Cancer Institute in young men in fluoridated versus fluoridated areas. Fluoride may also cause reproductive problems. There has been researching about the effects of Floride around the world.
Low-income families are especially penalized by fluoridation and are the very people being targeted by new fluoridation programs.
It is hard to inform low-income families and black and Hispanic children are more vulnerable to fluoride’s toxicity. Now that you know the bad side of fluoride and if you do volunteer work in YOUR community – spread the word – once YOU know something YOU have to take action.
ACT – DO NOT WAIT TO REACT
This is where the fluoride in most city water comes from, it is not a pharmaceutical grade, instead, it comes from the wet scrubbing systems of the phosphate fertilizer industry so they can make money instead of putting it in a city landfill which is not allowed in most cities.
Fluoride is an environmental health threat but it is easy to end.
Go to your city meetings and usually, there is an anti-fluoride group — join them, help them and inform YOUR community and try to reach out the low-income families so they have the information they need to make good decisions for their families.
