What Truly Matters Most

Today, millions of people are celebrating one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. (Easter is number one.) My husband, Dean, usually cooks up the best meal for Thanksgiving. We order a turkey from D'artagnan and I take the "day off" to reflect on much I am grateful for.

Thanksgiving is a perfect time to reflect on past, present and anticipated future appreciations of what truly matters most in life, especially with family and friends.

If you find yourself worried about the economy and how it may be affecting your health, think of it as a motivating factor to become more independent financially and take better care of yourself. You'll be glad you did.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

How much can you take?

A new way of eating is not a "diet" it is a new way of life. You can go on the way you have been and feel the way you have been, or embrace a new concept in daily habits and feel a whole lot better! This is an excerpt from World and thought it was highly valuable in sharing.

Dr. Richard Schulze on Healing and Responsibility:


Many people spend 30 or 40 years killing themselves with cigarettes, beer, wine or whiskey, coffee, black tea or soft drinks, high fat, sugar and low-fiber diets, junk food, no exercise, negative television and a bad attitude. These same people then worry if a herb may hurt them, if they are getting enough protein on a vegetarian diet or if they can physically take a health routine.

Get real!

You're lucky to be alive after what you have done. I have always found that a person's breaking point is about a million times past where they think it is. Most people who are taken hostage, starved and given forced labor end up healthier. Maybe you should consider getting kidnapped by a hostile government.

Amrit Kalash, MAK-4 & MAK-5

I’ve been doing a lot of research recently on anti-oxidant’s and everyone seems to have their own idea of what’s best and why.

It’s certainly easy to get information overload when compiling research these days, since there is so much available information out there. Nevertheless, that is what I do and pass on the information to you to save time, trouble and money discovering just what is the “deal” on certain things.

Regarding anti-oxidants, it seems like it’s the new “buzz” word. Every MLM I’ve come across, especially most recently , has shiny glossy photos in their catalogues of healthy food telling you they’ve got it all in that one little bottle you drink daily!...and that their high ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value, etc. is higher than the other one.

I think they’re all good, some are better than others. But what I’ve found to be the best is something called Amrit Kalash. Even Deepak Chopra talks about Amrit Kalash and endorses it, but that’s not why I say try it. I have seen the research on this product and it is truly amazing and well worth having in your cupboard and taken faithfully daily.

Amrit’s gifts are many: Enhance longevity, boost memory, sharpen intellect, lend a glow and aura to the skin, improve the quality of the voice, make speech more effective, increase the stamina of the senses, keep the body and mind youthful.

I’ve read about its anti-platelet aggregating capabilities (good for anyone over 40) and there’s a whole section dedicated to it in the Waking the Warrior Goddess book about fending off breast cancer.

I’ve never been an “auto-ship” type of gal, but this product is worth an “auto-ship” and the manufacturers have made it affordable as well. (less than $3.00/day)

Boost your immunity, look younger and healthier with this two-part synergistac Ayurvedic 5000 year old formula by calling (800) 255-8332 and ask for the Club Combo 2: Ambroisa Tablets and Nectar (paste or tablets) . Be sure to let them know your discount code: HP-195

I’m sure there are other anti-oxidents that may be “similar”, but none that have produced the proven health benefits that Amrit Kalash have.

Stabilize Blood Sugar Levels with Cinnamon Water

One way to help reduce choloesterol and stabilize blood-sugar levels is to crunch a whole cinnamon stick with a rolling pin. Then add the broken chips to 1 quart of water and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and serve warm or at room temperature.

Drink throughout the day. Especially tasty and useful for those that don't like the taste of "straight" water.
