NUTRITION- SUBJECT THAT LITERALY THROWN UNDER THE BUS


Today I would like to talk about a subject that is always thrown under the bus, literally speaking.   Every chronic disease, by all scientific research starts with the gut.  What we fuel our bodies depends on how we feel and act.  The number one question is.  Do we all get enough nutrition to keep our bodies healthy?  Per the USDA (The United States Dept of Agriculture) states that everyone should get between 8 to 10 bowls of fruit and vegetables each day.  DO YOU GET THIS MANY?  Most people are living the fast life and are on the go.

We all have done it, fast foods.  What nutrition is in a MacDonald happy meal or even a super-size meal? What about Domino’s or Taco Bell.  I can go on, but I will stop at that.

I have been a health nut for seven years, since I found out that December day that I was struck with cancer.  Not knowing what may have caused it, I decided to research and make it my calling to do alternative treatments and learned that it is also a lifestyle change.

We have to realize, that our bodies not just need fuel to keep our cells healthy, but we also need a clear mind and keep our bones functioning (meditation and exercise). It’s all about prevention.

Doctors, no fault of themselves are not trained in the most important part of keeping healthy and that is nutrition.  So, I have been taking this infused seed supplement that is all natural, cold pressed and easy to take during the day.  IT IS SOUL AND CORE.  One is an immune booster and the other is to detox you.

For more information go to   http://www.myrainlife.com/thejourneytogoodhealth

Also, next time you stop before or after you go to work or even before you take your child to baseball, football, cheerleader practice and etc. Then perhaps even eat at a fast food restaurant, remember this is what fuels a sick body.

SHAKE, PEEL AND DRINK, its that easy and can save you the costs of your visits to the doctor.

THE JOURNEY BACK TO THE STATES NEXT YEAR

 
As we plan our next adventure, Dan and I have experienced something that many do not. We have been living in Mexico for the past five years and have enjoyed the culture, people and the environment. We arrived not knowing what to expect, but not fearing the final curtain. We were treated for cancer WITHOUT surgery, chemo and radiation and Dan with his heart issues and coming out at the end with flying colors. Our healing process will always continue by our life style.


As some of you know Dan and I became grandparents this year. The journey of a new era has arisen and we feel that this is the perfect time to head on back to be closer to our daughter and her family. The decision on where to move was a hard one for I grew up in Florida and our daughter lives in New York. So, Dan did some research and Virginia was not that far from New York and we can take the Amtrak reasonably priced and an air fare to Florida also reasonably priced. The area that we are researching, the cost of living is not much more than what we are spending here in Mexico considering the cost of import fees that we are paying for our supplements to arrive here. Also, there is an organic market around the area that we are interested in.  


So, much has been happening this year and it just began. Looking forward to next year and the next steps to our new journey.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT - NUTRITION

DECEMBER NEWSLETTER

December 28, 2017
As this year comes to a close, I would like to wish everyone a peaceful and healthy New Year.  The topic that I feel very passionate about is food and nutrition.  We all have done it one time or another - diet.  I think we use this word very loosely for it is something that we do not stay on, its like a yo-yo (up and down).  

Seven years ago, while being treated with a scientific approach I was educated that it is a lifestyle choice.  It is something that is done on a regular basis.  We can eat anything you want, just substitute it with healthier choices.  So to understand this I will start with the history of how nutrition came about and then how you can make healthier lifestyle choices.

WOULD I CHANGE, IF I COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN


I haven’t written in a while personally, just been writing of knowledge and sharing my findings and experiences about methods of treatments for auto immune diseases.  For the past seven years, night after night I kept thinking about the day I heard that word cancer and me then going home from the doctor’s office after all the conventional testing.  After that I made the decision of not having surgery, chemo or radiation. Back then all I knew was that my dad, mother in law and relatives suffered and died from treatments and the disease. In my mind, I asked myself the question; do I want to end up like them?  My dad never got to see me grow up, see me get married and see his grandchildren. Did I want to be like him and not see my daughter succeed in her professional life, for she just finished getting her Masters in Design. I wanted to be around to see her get married and have children. 


So, I chose not to listen to the conventional wisdom of the doctors and educated myself along with my husband on other methods that were out there.  I experienced the functional approach, a lifestyle change and moved to Mexico.   Not everyone agreed with my decision, but it does not matter for I am still alive and living a quality of life.

Each day that goes by, educating and learning what is out there without putting my body through so much damage, I am grateful that I made that decision not to have surgery, chemo and radiation. So many people have died from not just the cancer, but because of the treatments.  Why would anyone want to put chemicals or remove a body part, if heat and oxygen kills the disease? I ask this question all the time, it’s the lack of education and not having the FDA approve the other methods that will more than likely give you a better quality of life.

Today I am so grateful to have had the support from my husband and daughter.  For I was able to see her bloom in her profession, see her get married and now soon experience a grandchild.  My journey and along with my husbands have been quite different then what we had even dreamed about seven years ago.  Its been a blessing and I would have not changed it if I had to do it all over again.

Learning to change my lifestyle, eating organic as well as using organic products, and using scientific approaches without chemicals gave me the opportunity to share and grow each day for the past seven years.

When each Christmas goes by, I look at my life with gratitude and realize how precious we are.  My lesson to you is before making a decision, do research and educate yourself.  Make it your decision and not anyone else’s, even your doctor.  Remember he is only giving you the advice that he learned in medical school.  There is a whole lot of good advice out there, you just have to seek it.  Believe in yourself and check out all the methods.

Rain international - COLD PRESS SEED BASED







CHANGE THINGS


Our mission is to continually move forward. If we begin to
feel comfortable, we know it’s time to push ahead again. We’ve found ways to
spread goodness through our products, business, and charity work. There are
many issues in the world, and we want to help solve them.


We’ve taken a huge step forward in solving the world’s
nutrition problems by creating a completely new category of health supplements.
They are one hundred percent non-GMO and derived directly from seeds. We call
it seed-based nutrition.


The process is really a revolutionary one. We use a
cold-press process, which obtains the potent benefits of super-seeds, and then
make them bioavailable for human consumption. The seeds we use have been
studied extensively and have proven health benefits. Those benefits they
provide are much more concentrated than even fruits or vegetables.


Our manufacturing and production standards are
extraordinarily high. We want to provide a quality product that is clean,
GMO-free, and potent for our consumers. These certifications back our
dedication to that standard.


We also want to ensure that our products are effective,
nutritional, and beneficial. We utilize bioanalytical laboratories whose
specialized tests give validity to companies in the nutraceutical, food,
pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. The tests are rigorous and extensive.
However, our products were found to be effective nutritional supplements that
succeed at promoting health and vitality.


GIVE.SHARE.REPEAT


Seeds for Change is a non-profit foundation, which we have
created. Birthed from our desire to make the world a better place, it supplies
potable water via wells for villages around the world. We also provide them
with the seeds and tools to grow their own food. We believe in sustainability for
the earth, and self-sufficiency for all people. It is our way of sponsoring
those who are pursuing a better life for themselves and others.


Rain International, along with Seeds for Change, have paired
up with Trees for the Future in order to continue to push goodness onward and
upward. Trees for the Future is a non-profit organization that changes the
world by planting one tree at a time. They are a foundation that is focused on
helping the earth and its people. They have already planted trees in 19
countries and thousands of communities. Our goal is to help them extend their
roots even further and deeper.



In an earnest effort to “Become More”, we commit to plant one seed for every
new Rain Partner that enters the company. In 2014 alone, we planted more than
38,800 seeds. While this number is great, we know we have the potential to do
more. Lives have been changed and ecosystems have been saved from this great
work. We plan on planting many more trees in the future to ensure that these
changes never end.


NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE WE CAN HELP


A desire for a better life is inherent in everyone. But,
injury, fatigue, and sickness can erode resolve and deteriorate motivation.
Dead-end jobs or the passage of time can dim the bright vision you had of your
future. We’ve seen too many people, packed with potential, fold under the
pressures of the world. It’s time for a change, and we’d like to help. Our
products, entrepreneurial system, and expert leaders have, for years, elevated
downcast eyes and set them back to look on the future. Check out our website
and learn the many ways Rain can be part of your pursuit of happiness and
health.

PERSISTENCE IS THE KEY


 

PERSISTENCE IS THE KEY

For the past 6 ½ years I have been putting my heart on the table and speaking out on many things relating to cancer, autoimmune disease and being healthy.  It all started when I was faced with the fact like my father and other family members that I had cancer.  Like a river cutting through the rocks, I persisted not to relive what they went through, but to find another way out.  Through the love of my husband and daughter I found strength.  The will within my heart gave me the opportunity to show others that we can look within ourselves and have hope for a much-deserved quality of life.

I am very humble to be able to choose options that gave me time to heal.  Our bodies are blue prints to an understanding of individual knowledge of managing life.  It’s our dreams, faith, will, beliefs, love and hopes that gives us time to create that persistence.

I placed my faith in professionals and other treatments in another country, for I believed that this would change my future and the dreams that I had would be seen within my own eyes.  I was not yet ready to give up the hopes of watching my daughter grow up to be a woman and see my grandchildren.  I wanted to be persistent  to change the course of this disease and end the pain for the future of my family. Through the knowledge and functional medicine treatments; I last year was able to be part of my daughter’s wedding and share the excitement and joy that she was experiencing.

It’s a challenge daily of keeping up with being healthy, it’s the will power of cutting through the rocks to the other side and creating dreams for the future.  Hand in hand with my husband we are now experiencing our future together in another country, Mexico.  We take life simple and share the knowledge that we have gained.  For the dreams, faith, will, beliefs, love, and hopes are what we strife and look for in making each of our life’s more meaningful.

For each year, I am grateful for taking the option of not giving into following the protocol of the conventional way and learning from a wise doctor that taught me not only to manage my cancer, but gave me back so much greater; the gift of life.

As I read others issues and the pain they are going through, I ask myself what can I do?  The answer is not an easy one for I fear for them and hope through the internet they will find another way so their dreams will be fulfilled.  May they have the persistence to manage and control the pain for a better future.

There is hope, we need to find it within our hearts and believe in ourselves in order to find the faith to learn the knowledge of ways to treat our illnesses without side effects.  We as individuals are drops in a river, but together we can be an ocean, it just takes persistence.

Remember that the river cuts through a rock, not because of its power but its persistence. Just follow the strength of your dreams, faith, will, beliefs, love, and have hope.

Aromatherapy Deodorant | Natural Homemade Spray with Essential Oils and without Baking Soda

Deodorant’s are hard to find that do not have chemicals in them.  When going to the market or store we look on the shelf and what do we see all ones with harmful products.  I looked for the best video that anyone can use.

I am OBSESSED with this deodorant. This is an AMAZING swap for store-bought options (that often contain aluminum salt) or the natural paste alternatives that sometimes don’t feel great when applying. And the best thing about this is that all the ingredients are very inexpensive.

INGREDIENTS
8 tbsp. distilled water
4 tbsp. witch hazel
2 tsp veggie glycerin or a rosewater/glycerin mix  
2 tsp aloe Vera juice  
10 drops lemon essential oil   
10 drops lavender essential oil  

6 drops bergamot essential oil  

DIRECTIONS Mix all ingredients and pour into a sterilized glass sprayer bottle. To use: Shake well before each use. Store: In cool, dark cabinet for up to 3 months.
