Healthy Cells, Healthy Immune System, Healthy Body

Our immune system was designed specifically to heal our bodies and keep them healthy. So why are so many failing these days?

There are many factors that cause our immune systems to function poorly - diet, lack of exercise, too much stress and how we handle it, pollutants and contaminants in the air and water, toxins in our food supply, body care and cleaning products among many other factors. But taking our health seriously doesn't have to be burdensome and confusing.

I don't know anyone who wants to be sick or die of disease but sadly that's what is happening to so many people. Death is a sure thing, but disease doesn't have to be.

If you're interested in strengthening your immune system allowing it to do its job, which is to heal your body, then go to Amazing Molecules . Find out how healthy cells make for a healthy body and then contact me!

"Reworking," "reconditioning" and "reprocessing" food just doesn't sound right

Snokist in Washington state, a huge supplier of processed fruit and babyfood, was caught using moldy apples in their applesauce AFTER being warned by the FDA.  And guess who this applesauce is supplied to?  According to the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, Snokist is or was (we don't know which at this point) supplying SCHOOLS nationwide through federal "nutrition" programs.  Nutrition?  Do they really know what that word means?  

The words "rework," "recondition" and "reprocess" jumped out at me while reading the article.  These words have nothing to do with nutrition.  What Snokist produces is "DEAD" food, to say the least.

As you read the article and the quotes of those who work at Snokist you'll get the idea that they truly don't care about producing quality food.  Their concern is the bottom line - profit, which is the name of the game for most, if not all, food manufacturing companies.  The fact that Snokist has been warned by the FDA and still continued to use moldy apples just goes to prove who they're looking out for, and it's not our children.

This is why each of us must take responsibility for ourselves and for our children.  We can't allow the government or companies to determine what is good for us.  Unfortunately there is too much corruption and greed.  We need to wake up and understand that we DO have a choice in the matter.  But that choice requires more of our attention and time.  In order to stop this malarkey, we simply must make wise decisions and recognize that we should not give authority over to others to decide what is best for us.  One way to do that is to have your child bring his or her lunch to school EVERY school day.  But first make sure you have healthy foods on hand for them to take.   And I don't mean Lunchables and prepackaged foods which come from manufacturing companies like Snokist who are only in it for profit.  Make your own "lunchables" with fresh organic fruits and vegetables, and just as important, make changes to your own diet.  Children learn more from what they see than what hear.  And decide not to buy junk foods and sodas.  This way they're not easily accessible.  But much more, please don't let your children eat the slop that our government is allowing these companies to provide at very low costs, because you surely do get what you pay for!  Like my cousin Michele recently said to me in an email that she heard from someone else - "You either pay now or pay later."
