Old houses

A friend came with her  meter to check all our electrical outlets. She found a bunch that weren’t grounded. That means more emf exposure. For $350 we had the issue corrected by an electrician.
I can feel the difference!

Goats milk

The soap is full of nutrients.  It feels so…soothing to those who have had chemo therapy and radiation.  But others with skin conditions like rosacea and more can appreciate Tasha’s Own. You can buy it at the Farmers Markets and around town.  It’s from a local farm you can visit in Toano.  They now offer a soap making class.  There’s also some time for children’s camp to learn some older ways of farming at a modern working farm.

A farmer

After reading ingredients on the previous RED MAT you may be ready to look a Weston A Price kind of farmer – in Virginia – where a national event of that group held a meeting last year.  He’s at thelunaticfarmer.com.  Not a mainstream site.

Red mat

You may or may not have seen this red mat outside Earth Fare, grocery store.  It can give us all clues tothe current barrage of strange symptoms, increased chronic illness, and the rationale for the detoxification topic.  Many countries in the industrialized world don’t allow all this.  My grandparents living in the USA surely didn’t get exposed to it.

  See “Community gardens” entry 2/15/20 to see what’s being done for healthier food here.

Check out the Environmental Working Group ewg.org to pick out sunscreens and too much sun remedies.  Safer times are before 10 am and after 2 pm.  I learned that as a child – no where near this “burg”.

This is the name of a section of the quarterly journal of the Weston A Price Foundation which critiques book, movies, podcasts, dvds.  Here are some suggestions from it in more recent years:

Nature’s Garden:  A guide to Identifying Harvesting and preparing edible wild plants. Book by Samuel Thayer

Stink!  Dvd produced and directed by Jon J Whelan, a single father who becomes concerned about the pajamas he bought for his child.  The smell when he opened the package was so horribly strong.  This is the story of his investigation.

The salt fix.  Book by Nicholas DiColantonio.   We’re not getting enough good quality of salt in our standard American diet.   Folks of previous generations who ate all the parts of an animal got “nutrient dense food”.  That’s the kind of food the Weston A Price Foundation talks about.  (Entries 3/3&6/20).

Adventures with Jodi.  Book by Jodi Ledley.  This is the story of one woman with migraines and chronic pain who slowly recovered.  Her recovery resulted in better quality of life for herself and her family.  She looked at her teeth too.

Head Games.  DVD directed by Steve James.  Concussions in the USA are increasing dramatically.  Although this focuses on sports activities – some small children experience a concussion before it’s time to try out for a team.  I haven’t seen it to know if craniosacral   assessment and treatment are included.  It is offered at Innovative Pain Release in town. This is a nice non invasive gentle approach for healing.

Mercury Free:  the Wisdom Behind the Global Consumer Movement to Ban Mercury Dental Fillings.  Book by James Hardy, DDS.  It covers many other sources of mercury.  Sadly although this book was published in 1996, some dentists continue to place mercury “silver fillings” in teeth.  For an update on the topic visit toxicteeth.org.

Secret Ingredients. Dvd directed by Amy Hart and anti-GMO activist, Jeffrey Smith. This is a collection of true stories of more than a dozen people who regain their health simply by making better food choices.  Some comments by doctors are included.

Newer drugs present ever greater hazards as well as potential greater benefits than ever before and they are widely used. They are often very potent and aggressively marketed and tend to overstate their merits and fail to indicate the risks in their use….
There is no way of measuring the needless suffering, the money innocently squandered, and the protracted illnesses resulting from the use of such ineffective drugs. John F Kennedy in his Consumers Protection Message March 15, 1962. (taken from a Weston A Price Journal)

And so I’ve just recently learned where Senator Edward Kennedy and now Robert F Kennedy Jr may have been exposed to such ideas.
