Walking around the internet…

Good Afternoon,

Man it’s been a while since I blogged, I’ve really missed it. I kind of fell into a non blogging hole this winter, but now that spring is finally here I’ve climbed out of that hole and am excited to come back to my blog.

Today after running some errands I decided to do a guided mediation and then complete a few other tasks this afternoon. Well I stretched out on the couch as the meditation started and the damn comfortable couch that just sucked me in for a two hour nap. This is why I do guided meditations, so I don’t fall asleep. LOL Oh well, so I started poking around on youtube and came across this gem of a man & his Youtube channel. I spent an hour watching his videos, it was this video that I wanted to share with you all today. Enjoy!

Please spread this blog post…

Hello everyone,

Today I’m not going to be writing about food, our health, or anything I’ve blogged about in the past. This blog post is about the dogs that have been going missing here in central Alberta, right in my own back yard, possibly your back yard. Here’s the ugly truth people… there is a dog fighting ring here in Edmonton. They are stealing dogs from people’s yards & farms to use as bait dogs. These dogs are being tortured, even killed for the entertainment of sick disgusting people. Someone has seen these fights, someone is helping to steal these dogs, and someone has over heard someone bragging about it. So let’s do something about it. Let’s raise awareness by utilizing our social media. Let those in positions of power & celebrity know that we will not stand for this, those who are involved, including spectators, need to be made an example of. I don’t just want to sit here and talk about it, let’s do something about it. I want your input & your ideas of how we can come together to put an end to this. We need to protect our creatures, it is our responsibility as decent human beings. Please comment, send me a message, write me an email or call me with any ideas of how to move forward with this, it’s got to stop and I’m willing to do something about it.

I know not all of you who read this blog are Albertan or even Canadian, but you can help too, you have ideas & information to share and I am urging you to share anything you think may be helpful to get the word out, an action to take, someone to contact etc.

This is a call to action, a battle cry if you will.

Thanks for reading, please spread this blog post far and wide, reblog it, tweet it, facebook it, email it, send it to your local news. Do what you have to do to make people aware, and put a stop to the dogs that are going missing. Bring about justice for those who have already lost their dogs, and prevent it from happening.

Follow the money, who are you really voting for?

A recent comment reminded me of a post I saw on Facebook a few days ago.
This post led me to a pretty cool website.

Do you know which big corporations own organic companies? Where is your hard-earned money really going when you choose to buy organic products? Probably to line the pockets of a big fat cat that doesn’t have your best interests at heart. Or maybe I’m being too harsh, perhaps it’s their way of getting involved and supporting the choice to eat real food.

I think the best way to know where you’re money is going is to buy local as much as you can, do your research, talk to people, or take a little trip through Google. Here is a collection of images I found online by simply googling “who owns organic companies.”

How many of you become intrigued by a post on facebook whose comments leads to hours of other websites & blog posts? It can be an eye opening experience, being the sponge for knowledge that I am I’m always fascinated with where such posts take me.

Today it was this picture…

The Cure

Attached to this image was this link.

In the comments section of this blog was this link, then proceeded to locate the documentary with full intentions of watching it. It’s available in a number of places on the web.

I then went back to the Facebook post to read the comments left by others.

Here’s the first link I found there:

Cancer Research Fraud

This article brings up some interesting thoughts. Who stands to gain or lose the most if a real cure is actually found. Finding a cure would result in large corporations going belly up & hundreds, maybe thousands of people out of work.

Then there’s the science, now I’m no expert but basic science tells us that replication is a crucial part of scientific discoveries. Can someone else repeat the process & get the same results? According to this article a large portion of these studies do not yield the same results.

Modern “medicine” is a money grab, how many times have you gone to the doctor and left with a prescription without having any kind of tests done? I am a firm believer that diet & lifestyle are major factors in our health and wellbeing, how many doctors prescribe lifestyle changes before they prescribe pills with side effects?

Getting back on the topic of the facebook post the next link I followed was this one…

Ancient Healing

Which gets us back on the actual topic of the above image. Why is Cannabis illegal? This question led me to this site. Quite the interesting read about the history Cannabis. So, it’s being illegal is based on racism essentially, followed by industrial competition(I’m lumping in the medical system here) hmmm interesting.

I then came across a Canadian connection… Someone commented about googling Rick Simpson, so I did and I found this video. It’s about an hour long and filled with all kinds of information regarding the healing ability of Hemp oil, not to be confused with Hemp Seed oil. This video then lead me to Rick’s website.

I’m left with the question why isn’t anything being done about this? Is it all bull crap? Again I ask you who benefits most from this being swept under the rug? People are sick & dying and here is potential cure why aren’t they doing anything to help move this along? According to Rick’s video it’s not only curing cancer but it’s healing all sorts of diseases that plague us.

The next link is one for the National Cancer Institute’s website about its studies on Cannabis & Cannabinoids and their Anti-tumor Effects, use as an Appetite Stimulation, and Analgesia. Not exactly an exciting read, but helps give some validity beyond what people are claiming.

So, that’s how I spent my Sunday morning, a couple cups of coffee & a little running around on the internet. Gained a bunch of information, and even more questions.

If you have anything to add please feel free to leave me a comment.

Happy Sunday

Obesity & Health…

Hello dear readers,

I have been absent for far too long, I’m trying to change that.

Here’s an issue that is important to me and I wanted to put a little rant out there for you to read.

Just because someone is overweight doesn’t mean they’re unhealthy and it doesn’t mean they have horrible eating habits. Just because someone is thin doesn’t mean they are healthy or physically fit. Too often we judge people by their outward appearances forgetting the golden rule about judging a book by it’s cover. You don’t know someone’s history, you shouldn’t be judging them. That overweigh guy could have just reached his goal of losing 100 lbs, and that chubby girl enjoying an ice cream could be a gym junky enjoying her first treat in 3 months. Stop looking at those around you and focus on yourself, stop being so ignorant.

I am overweight, but have been told by my doctor that my body fat % is lower than a lot of their thinner patients. I’m healthy, I have a great immune system and can sprint up a flight of steps without losing my breath. The majority of the time, I don’t eat fast food, processed foods, refined sugar, or chemicals disguised as food. I’m not perfect and I do slip up once in a while, but I don’t beat myself up about it and I don’t judge others either. Life is about finding balance and learning to love yourself and others for who they are not what they are.

I came across this news article and wanted to share.

ABC News

I’m not a promoter of “fat acceptance”, I’m a promoter of being healthy and that healthy comes in a variety of sizes. Know who you are, and be proud of it.

Thanks for reading.

A gem…

November 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Hello Dear readers,

I came across this link on Facebook today and thought I’d share it here. It’s called “Who owns Who?” and it’s a great source of information especially it you’re like me and want to vote with your money, or you simply prefer to support the small, local guy. This will help you avoid supporting a company that seems to be a small local guy but is really owned by a company like Pepsico, or Nestle.

As always please leave your comments below.

Cheers
