My Journey to Integrative Medicine

Journey Into Integrative Medicine

Straw Bale Gardening Solves a Host of Soil Problems

Straw Bale Gardening caught our attention.

Why? Because so many tree roots have grown into the west side of our garden that the trees are stealing the nutrients and water making it difficult to grow our vegetables. When we read that straw bales can be placed anywhere, even on a driveway or roof top, we thought maybe we could redeem that side of the garden.

And so we started our adventure in straw bale gardening following the instructions in Joel Karsten’s book Straw Bale Gardens Complete. You can also visit his web site http://strawbalegardens.com/

Be Wise Newsletter: Problem: Roundup in your body? What’s the Solution?

What would you do if you knew the herbicide Roundup was accumulating in your body?

 

Roundup in breast milkSome innovative and concerned moms involved in Moms Across America commissioned a study to determine if glyphosate would be detected in breast milk.

And sure enough, there it is, accumulating in mother’s milk in 3 of the 10 samples tested. The levels they detected were “760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allows for individual pesticides (Glyphosate is both a pesticide and herbicide)”. This study found levels of 76 ug/l to 166 ug/l in mother’s milk…

vaccine monster

 

People seems to take sides on the vaccine issue based on emotional responses rather than wise decisions based on unbiased information. Even news casters, who normally present both sides, discuss the vaccine controversy from their own emotional responses.

And now I’m even more concerned

” Right now, there are 36 states considering 110 different bills to limit or eliminate personal belief exemptions.… Read the rest

Migraines Triggered by BPA in Plastics

Migraines afflict 18% of women (27 million women in the United States) and 6% of men and finding the underlying cause of these debilitating headaches can be quite elusive.

 

Recent research at Kansas University found one possible trigger for migraines – BPA! Bisphenol A lurks in plastic products and has estrogen- like properties. By causing estrogen levels to rise in the body it may trigger migraines.

 

Female rats were used in this study since they get headaches similar to humans. When a migraine strikes a rat they avoid light, sound, grooming, and routine movements. (Who would have … Read the rest

Addiction equals enslavement. Do you want to be enslaved to the disease-inducing effects of sugar addiction?
