I recently went camping in Virginia where there wasn’t any wi-fi.  I can feel the difference. Sitting on a porch in the rain my husband said there was a strong pleasant smell that he had never smelled before.  He is a senior who has come here since boyhood.  Someone guessed it might be old pine trees and pollen.

Our current environment is changing people’s behaviors.  At the campground a middle-aged man spoke about his winter trip to Michigan, where for the first time in 40 years there was no ice for him to go ice fishing.  In my alumni magazine I read about a young man who’s family has been catching and serving lobster for generations.  He’s hoping with his college degree in relevant coursework to his family tradition that he will be able to continue “lobstering”.  Warmer temperatures on Block Island is the factor pushing lobsters north.

In Virginia oysters and menhaden (food for larger fish) are facing warmer temperatures too.

Another way to ruin your skin or even your life is skin lightening cream.  Some teens may be lead to believe that creams containing MERCURY may help with acne.  Labels which showthe words “mercurous chloride”, “calomel”, “mercuric”, mercuric, MERCURY havea high level of MERCURY (a known neurotoxin).  The FDA says you should be suspicious of any skin product without a label.  The MERCURY product should be disposed of in a solid container as hazardous waste.  The Food & Drug Administration has a site online about these products.

Since the last blog I’ve discovered Rashid Buttar died the day it was published. Somewhere online his last teachings about the causes of his death will appear.

Quite a few promoting health by reducing of changing source of sweet foods thought Stevia was a better choice.  And just a very tiny bit to get to sweet.  I was one of thousands who wrote about here in several 2020 blogs.

But now I see from reading online Foundation for Alternative and Integrative Medicine that this plant has undergone lots of processing.  Most but not all Stevia products in the US have many chemicals.  I just threw out the little packets in my kitchen previously offered to guests.

When some folks are bothered nothing much might change.  When others are bothered things can really change greatly.  What is going on now in this country is that some of the ones who are really bothered are being silenced or discredited by being labelled as anti-American.

Take one person who was indoctrinated on how to use some pharmaceutical products in medical school.  Later as a doctor he used them in the emergency room, in the US military, and in other settings.  Now as a gray-haired gent he speaks out against pharma using the MERCURY plus aluminium plus formaldehyde in products.  An immigrant who chose deliberately to come to this country – finds himself on some political anti-USA list.

He was opposed to the MERCURY aluminum formaldehyde combo before COVID.  He has opposed the pharma combination through the pandemic time.  I don’t know how much education one needs to look doubtfully at this combination.  He has lawyers to protect his voice as he practices medicine on the east coast.

Anyone here in town can test for mercury level at

This pre-scheduled blog unfortunately appeared here the day of HIS death. At 57 it was quite unexpected that Dr Rashid Buttar of North Carolina would pass on. He had much t say about what was going on with his body in his last days. Podcasts of his teachings will be online for quite awhile, as he was preparing to talk at another another large health promoting conference.

A podcast I watched recently had an interview with a famous foreign personage.  Four USA males in their 20s questioned our visitor about various aspects of life.  During the hour he wanted to share the experience of the biofield with them.  He didn’t use the word “biofield”.  He was pointing out the fact that we are more than the physical bodies we see.  Only one of these guys got in touch with his own biofield from the foreigner’s demonstration.😑

But there is now The Encyclopedia of Energy Medicine describing some 60 courses of study going on in this country working in the biofield.
