How to Make Your New Years Resolutions StickSo it’s the New Year again and resolutions about eating better, getting into better shape and being more active abound. Year in and year out we make ourselves these promises, many to be broken leaving us feeling like we have failed. But what if there was a way to succeed? What if a workable technology existed to help you reach those goals? Well, it does and it is within your grasp. It is NOT some magic supplement or a multilevel marketing product. It IS invaluable information which will put you in the driver’s seat to reaching your goal of a healthy body.

Come to Peter Gillham’s on the 23rd of January at 6:30 p.m. for a free seminar that will help answer your questions about how to achieve the health and well being you desire.  The seminar will be delivered by three experts in the fields of nutrition, diet and exercise with combined experience of over 70 years in their fields. You will learn why past programs have failed to help you, how taking too many supplements may be making things worse and how the “no pain, no gain” approach to working out is causing your body long term damage. There is so much information and so many products out there selling themselves as miracles to weight loss and health. At this seminar we will debunk the myths and you will learn the actual scientific barriers to having a healthy body and the technology to overcome them. If you are ready to take control of your health and become totally causative over your body and its well being, you don’t want to miss this!  Seating is limited and filling fast, so call (727) 462-5770 to confirm today!

Once reserved for Europeans, bidets are now popular all over the world -­ except in North America. Pictured: A toilet and bidet in a Westin Hotel in Italy - Photo by Brandi Sims, Courtesy of FlickrBesides being more sanitary than toilet tissue, bidets—those squirty accessories so popular in Europe, Japan and elsewhere that clean your underside using a jet of water—are also much less stressful on the environment than using paper.

Peter Gillham's in Downtown ClearwaterMost of the articles I write are health-related information to help educate you, the reader, by giving you information you can use to help improve your quality of life. So many of you have called or come into the store to thank us for what we do. Today I would like to thank each and every one of you for everything YOU do. Because of all of you Peter Gillham’s has been experiencing expansion like never before. Each of you has helped to contribute by supporting a small local business run by local people, and we in turn give back as a store by contributing to and supporting local community groups, and as individuals by our many hours of volunteer work in numerous city and private groups which help to make our city a better place to live. Together we are achieving this.

Is molybdenum toxic in cooking?Having trace amounts of molybdenum in our bloodstreams is not only normal but beneficial. The element piggybacks onto bacteria to help us metabolize proteins and grow new cells, and also helps keep our vertebrae and tooth enamel strong. But too much of it can indeed be toxic.

Should You Vaccinate Your Child?

Should You Vaccinate Your Child?When my first daughter was born I did what was expected and got her immunized. Within 24 hours she began gasping for air and stopped breathing. Fortunately I was near her and able to get her breathing again with stimulation. The doctors told me that this happens occasionally and she should be fine. I never made a connection to the immunization. She had no incidents for the next three months until I took her to the doctor for her next set of shots. This time about 6 hours after the shot she gasped for air and stopped breathing again. Again, this time I was there to get her breathing again, and this time I made the connection between the two cases. I decided to find another pediatrician, who told me she was having an allergic reaction to the immunizations and to cease giving her shots. He also told me not to give any other children that came after her any shots and taught me how to protect my children to the best of my ability against childhood disease.

mother_and_baby.jpgWhat is the Mother’s Act? - Written by Mental Health Advocate and Director of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida  Laurie Anspach

Most Americans are becoming all too familiar with the steady stream of new mental illnesses psychiatry has “identified.” Almost every single behavior, habit, or thought process that a man, woman, or child experiences has been incorrectly deemed to be a mental illness by psychiatry. Even babies who cry are now considered by psychiatry to be mentally ill. The Mother's Act fits this pattern.

The View at Life Center for a New Tomorrow in TennesseeMounting evidences show that psychiatric drugs have side effects often worse than what they are supposed to cure. Many experts have testified against the danger of psychiatric drugs. More and more people are becoming aware that the psychiatric industry is more a fraud than a real science. Organizations such as CCHR (www.cchr.org) have exposed psychiatric abuses for many years. But psychiatrist and the pharmaceutical industry continue to push pills on people. Pills that not only do not work but create more bad conditions. The apparent workability of some drugs come from the fact that it seems better to have someone sit quietly in a corner after they have been pumped full of drugs rather than seeing the same person banging his head against a wall or screaming all day long. But what state is better? One of a zombie who has no will power or is unable to act anymore or one who is still trying to get his demons out by screaming or banging his head against the wall? One is fighting, the other has given up.

Oxygen Deprivation

Hypoberic Oxygen TreatmentMost people know extreme oxygen deprivation causes death, but deprivation can come in varying degrees and causes; resulting in death to a few cells or many.

Because all cells need oxygen to work and live, low oxygen can affect every part of your body. It is vital that every one of your cells is constantly working and able to repair itself if you are to continue in good health.

Desiree LotzFirst it was the birds that got the rap and now it’s the pigs. And we fall hook, line and sinker for all the dour news that devastation is going to descend and kill us all if we don’t have a needle jabbed into us!

There has been flu on this planet since time immemorial and we’re still here - in ever-increasing numbers. What happened to the so-called devastating effects of the last big flu threat - avian flu? It flew into non-existence and died the death it deserved. It’s amazing how much fear a controlled media can create.

Food Inc by Robert Kenner Plays at the Tampa Theatre This AugustRobert Kenner’s  Food Inc., is a penetrating and scary look at the path our food is traveling to get to us. The food industry slams us with their messages of “eat our food”  Now we have someone fighting back with the truth about our food with the help of nutrition activists, including Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) and Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma). High-fructose corn syrup and its friend the E.coli virus are declaring war on national health, and federal agencies, lobbied by Big Agriculture, ain't doing a thing to stop it. Reason? Profits. The movie offers solid alternatives. If the way to an audience's heart is through its stomach, Food, Inc. is a movie you're going to love.

Narconon LogoAmerica – a country founded on principles of individual freedom, by strong-principled men and women who fought to create a social structure in which citizens could choose their religions and their own ways of life.

Some people may consider that the American way of life is under attack by political or economic factors. This may or may not be true – but one thing is certain: America and Americans are under concerted attack by those who manufacture, smuggle, distribute and sell drugs of abuse. This is so true that there is no corner of this great country in which illicit drug use or abuse of prescription drugs cannot be found.

The story of illicit drug use in America is a devastating tale of lost life, abuse, neglect, emotional and physical damage and lost potential. Since 1996, statistics on the number of current drug users ages 12 and over have risen from an estimated 13,000,000 to 20,400,000. Drug abuse and addiction aggravate every social ill we experience, from child or domestic abuse to crime, medical costs, production and employment problems and social welfare costs. .
