Natural health has become a multi-million dollar industry. These days there seems to be a supplement to do everything from helping you lose your belly fat to growing, well, lots of things. And everyone seems to be publishing another book or designing another diet. So where is a consumer to turn? The best place to start is to learn about your body and its needs, and that is where this monthly column comes in.

This year will be my 20th anniversary selling real estate in the Greater Tampa Bay area, and just when I think I’ve heard it all, along comes Chinese Drywall!

Chinese Drywall is a Chinese product imported by the Lennar Corporation and has been found to contain high levels of sulfur.  In many cases, the drywall emits fumes that destroy appliances, air conditioning systems, duct work, copper pipes, blackens jewelry and can even make people sick.

Solving Mold Problems

MarleneHudson.pngEveryone is affected in one way or another in dealing with ridding mold effectively and permanently. Whether you are trying to sell a house or concerned about the health of your small children, mold is a recurring problem. Typically a problem of moist climates, it has grown to a more global problem with flooded homes, towns and neighborhoods.

The universal solution to killing mold has always been a bleach solution even though it does not kill mold spores, but in fact encourages their return! The good news is there is a true solution to this growing epidemic in our homes.  Essential oils. Pure essential oils must be distilled properly and be free of synthetic properties.  While all essential oils kill microbes, certain oils destroy specific ones more effectively. It has been discovered that no pathogens (germs) can survive in cinnamon oil. Clove is additionally a powerful bactericidal.

Body Work


A word we could use for the basis of every disease in the human body is the word “STOPPAGE”.  We could have a stopped flow to any area whether it’s the blood stream, the lymphatic flow, even the nerve supply.  Stoppage is the BASIC, on why any area of the body gets diseased.  This is a case where the body can’t get nutrition in, and also can’t get the wastes out. 

Many people think of nutrition as “Food IN through the mouth and Waste OUT through the bowel”.  But every cell in your body needs to be fed.  You can drink the most nutritious juices and take the greatest most potent herbs in the world, and even assimilate them into your blood, BUT unless that nourished blood gets to the exact cell that needs it, that cell won’t get fed and IT WON’T GET WELL!!!

The power of bodywork is amazing.  MASSAGE and EXERCISE can get more blood circulating through the body and nourishment delivered to the organs, increasing the amount of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes from your juices and herbs to that organ.  It also gets wastes such as Carbon Dioxide, Toxins and Poisons out of those cells.  This all has to happen through your blood and your lymphatic systems.

Can You Be Labeled Crazy for Using Your Computer?For anyone who owns a computer or has a cell phone that they use for text messaging, you may want to take a look at what is bout to come down the pipeline of psychiatry’s fraudulent and ever-tiring attempt to label us all “crazy”. In The American Journal of Psychiatry this month, Dr. Jerald J. Block, Psychiatrist, announced that “Internet addiction appears to be a common disorder that merits inclusion in DSM-V” (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual).  At the bottom of the article it states, “Dr. Block owns a patent on technology that can be used to restrict computer access.”   What better way, then, to announce a mental health disorder that encompasses the use of computers and text messaging?

To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate

To Vaccinate or Not to VaccinateWe have looked at the effect of a vaccine “shot” on a two month- old baby The first of a potential seventy-four “the authorities” consider necessary to protect your child’s health.  These “authorities” are expert at convincing young parents, at of the dire consequences of failing to observe the prescribed vaccination schedule:  Expert at stirring up old fears in the mind.
Where did this fear factor originate?  Could it be a just the fear of losing one’s beloved child?  Or does this fear go deeper ?  Could it be a shadow memory of centuries of devastating diseases stealing our children, decimating populations, and destroying national morale?  Ages of terror that remain buried in man’s collective consciousness: Long forgotten memories all too easily restimulated when our fear buttons are pushed, especially when it comes to our children!   So they accept the experts advice.

Get Real With ADHD!

forever_green_gala_blake.jpgEver heard… “Well, we can discuss Ritalin”?  I asked the doctor, “Are there any other natural options?”, “What about food allergies causing some of the out of control behavior?”  Our pediatrician said I could go to an allergist, but he had not heard of any food allergies that could be connected.  I asked the allergist to test my son for red food coloring allergy since I had heard it could cause out of control behaviors.  The allergist gave us a month supply of Clariton and told us to come back if it helps.  I was outraged that none of the doctors wanted to help the underlying cause.  I was not going to put my son on dangerous, addictive prescription drugs that wouldn’t get to the cause, resulting in him having severe issues later in life; turning to street drugs.  So, I went to the best source, God.  I prayed for help because I knew He had the answer.
