Drinking soymilk is the quick and easy way to get the goodness of soy into your body by replacing unhealthy cow’s milk in coffee, cereal, smoothies and protein drinks!

Why Soymilk?

Humans have taken up the dubious habit of drinking the milk of another species. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of nutrition for calves and will multiply its weight 8 times over in 9 months. Unlike humans, once calves or any other mammalian species are weaned they never drink milk again.

Cow’s milk contains on average three times the protein of human milk and creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequences.

Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels dioxins and as many as 52 powerful antibiotics, in addition to the blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. It is a slow poison. …read more of Make Fresh Delicious Soymilk for Pennies a Gallon in Just 20 Minutes! here

Thanksliving ~ For the Turkeys

Ironically, every Thanksgiving, 46 million turkeys are consumed by Americans on a day that was established to celebrate the harvest.

Turkeys are the ‘centerpiece’ of the meal even though there is overwhelming evidence that people who consume a plant-based diet are far healthier than those who eat animal products.

Turkeys can be quite intelligent and as loyal as dogs. Timmy, the turkey who died of old age earlier this year is still mourned by the employees of the sanctuary in Woodstock, NY and the guests he followed around, waited for and fussed over.

Turkeys and dogs, pigs and cats, lambs and parrots, cows, rabbits, chickens, ducks and goats are all sentient. They are aware of their surroundings and want to live.

Even though turkeys can live up to twelve years, turkeys bred for food consumption have a short, painful life of not more than six months.  …read more of Thanksliving ~ For the Turkeys here

Since the inception of “Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” the message has been about reminding women 40 years of age and older to get mammograms. But, in this country incidences of breast cancer are still on the rise in women under 40, an age when mammograms are not effective. Mammograms will never stop the breast cancer epidemic; however prevention will.

Research shows that lifestyle choices made during the pre-teen and teen years are the most influential to your overall health as an adult.

Could a Chinese Herbal Remedy Save Ebola Stricken Africa?

The Chinese herbal remedy – yunnan baiyao (also known as yunnan paiyao) has been used quite extensively by veterinarians to prevent hemorrhage in animals. It is a well-known pre-emptive remedy to avoid exercise-induced lung hemorrhage in racehorses and has been studied as a topical agent for uncontrolled bleeding in adolescents with advanced cancer.

The first time I encountered this Chinese herbal remedy was when a colleague’s husband was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after having extensive surgery to remove a tumor and whose condition was tenuous. He was deteriorating and experiencing uncontrolled bleeding in parts of his circulatory system due to a complication called DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation.)

Since very few therapies can save a patient in DIC, the patient was bleeding out through all his intravenous access points and even in his gut. Once a person enters DIC, it is often fatal.

Because his situation was almost hopeless, the hospital broke protocol and allowed the family to administer yunnan baiyao, recommended by their acupuncturist. …read more of Could a Chinese Herbal Remedy Save Ebola Stricken Africa? here
