Natural Vs. Synthetic Vitamins

Dr. Royal Lee (1895-1967) is the father of modern natural vitamins. You wouldn’t find him in Who’s Who nor would he be cited as an authority in any established scientific publication. You will find websites who published FDA attacks against this honest hard working genius, forwarding lies used to destroy this man’s name, etc. Never do they mention the fact that the vitamins created by Dr. Lee sold through his company Standard Process, are still the best vitamins on planet Earth today.

Growing Food Locally

I am no economist, but it doesn’t take a wizard to see why life feels so stressful when one looks at the prices of things. In a casual perusing of the almanac, one realizes that though the average income was only $3,216 in the 1950s, gas was 20 cents a gallon, milk was 82 cents, and a house was only $14,500!

Oxygen Benefits

In nature, oxygen likes to stay in the form of O2. This is its form in the air that we breathe. The ozone layer, in the upper layers of the atmosphere surrounds the Earth and helps to protect us from the sun’s radiation. Ozone consists of 3 atoms of Oxygen (O3), created when the sun’s ultraviolet light splits an oxygen molecule (O2) into 2 single, unstable Oxygen atoms. The single molecules combine with others to form Ozone (O3). Ozone isn’t stable; in fact it will quickly give up the extra atom of Oxygen to falling rainwater to form Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2). This is why rainwater is so wonderful.

Coconut Oils The Ultimate Healthy Oil

In the last issue, we talked about all the various health benefits of the coconut oil. In the past, my experience as been, that the oil has a funny burnt taste and pretty much odorless. However, intuitively I recognize that this shouldn’t be the case so I started to research, for the best quality, coconut oil that I could get my hands on. Sure enough the common coconut oil, that most of us have experienced, is called RBD (refined, bleached and deodorized). This product is produced from copra (dried coconut meat). Due to the drying process (often air or sun drying) the resulting oil must be refined, bleached and deodorized in order to make it suitable for use. The final product is yellowish-white in color with a thick texture and no taste or odor. This was the type, which for many years was used in commercial baked goods and for popping corn. Although coconut palms do grow in some states in the United States, this RBD oil is generally the only one, which might be familiar to those of us living in the U.S.A. Although it has been exposed to bleach, solvents, high temperatures, etc. this hydrogenated and that it melts at around 76’ F.

Toxic Fluoride

In past newsletters, I have shared with you the results of my research into the toxicity of fluoride. New research data has surfaced that shows links between fluoride and ADD, ADHD, hyperactivity, and learning disabilities. How does this work? Many of you may not realize that the blood-brain barrier of a fetus is permeable, because their brains are growing and developing. When the mother ingests fluoride during her pregnancy, that fluoride crosses the fetal blood-brain barrier.

Are You Still Using A Microwave

Microwaves turn all foods into a left-hand spun material (most toxic, synthetic products spin to the left and most naturally occurring foods spin to the right. The spin refers to the molecular structure that looks like “DNA molecules” and they have a spin like a spring, which face left or right.)

This is like trying to fit your right hand into a left hand glove. Your body will respond to the food but will not use the food or digest the food properly.

A recent research done in Finland found that antioxidants and other wonderful cancer fighting compounds fresh vegetables because they are water soluble and are most easily lost when boiled or blanched in large quantities of water. ( The journal of the science of food and agriculture 2003 vol.83 #14. The researchers also discovered that microwave vegetables also lose up to 97% of 3 major antioxidant compounds. The Soviet Union banned the use of microwaves in 1976.

It is important to remember that many of our health issues come from poor digestion. That is one reason why we use the microorganisms in Inner Garden to help the body process food and we also soak beans, nuts, and rice in Inner Garden to help prepare them for the body to break down properly.

So if you are still using a microwave to prepare your food you may want to think twice.

“Hijacking the world’s food supply”

For the last 25 years, the medical industry has been actively engaging in an all out black propaganda campaign against all of the high quality oils such as butter, animal fats, and coconut oil. These are the good, high-density oils that create good health.

At the turn of the 20th century (1900) we had 3% heart disease and 1 in 200 cancer rates. Everyone ate pasture fed animal fats in large quantity and enjoyed raging good health and abundant vitality. By the end of the 1930-1940s, the American Medical Association started to create more profits by increasing disease, under the guise of health.

In order to increase profits on cheap oils, someone has gotten “the bright idea” to create biodiesel. Burn everything! Use up the corn and wheat to make biodiesel. With this move, they have efficiently increased the price of corn by 44% and wheat by 92%. But that wasn’t good enough, now they are attacking one of the most nutritious oils on the planet- coconut oil. What are they doing? Buying up all the coconuts in the Philippines and Indonesia and turning it into biodiesel! Can you imagine that, taking the most nutritious oil to burn in your car, rather than using it in all of our commercial products!

It isn’t enough to “educate” us into becoming nutritional idiots so that we are riddled with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia; they now are trying to make the cheap oils extremely expensive by burning them in car engines. Biodiesel’s true purpose is to remove nutrition and anything that promotes health.

Biofuels are a “Crime Against Humanity”

There is a Bill that provides a $2.2 billion subsidy for biofuels and requires that all gasoline include 5% biofuel content by 2010. Yet there is increasing evidence to show that the rush to biofuels will do more environmental harm than good. Converting food crops to fuel, causing food prices to skyrocket out of reach of millions of hungry people, is a “crime against humanity, says United Nations Special Reporter on the Right to Food, Jean Ziegler. Bill C-33 is coming up for 3rd and final reading.

Drugged Water

For decades, water testing has focused on the presence of herbicides, lead, mercury and PCBs in our drinking water. But there are other chemicals that are showing up in our water that should be cause for concern. A five-month investigation by the Associated Press has revealed a cornucopia of pharmaceuticals, from sex hormones to anti-cholesterol to tranquilizers, in the drinking water of 24 metropolitan areas from one end of the country to the other. Not only that, but 35 of the 62 watersheds supplying the major providers were tested, and drug residues were detected in 28. Rural areas are not exempt either: water sampled downstream of a Nebraska feedlot, for example, had steroid levels four times higher as the water tested upstream.

According to the EPA, there are no water treatment systems designed to remove pharmaceuticals, and many drugs such as anti-cholesterol, anti-depressant, and anti-epileptic medications are treatment resistant. There is evidence to suggest that chlorine, the conventional cure-all, makes some drugs even more toxic. With Americans taking prescription and non-prescription drugs in record numbers, the situation is certainly not improving.

Prozac, also known as fluoxetine (the pharmaceutical name for fluoride), causes akathisia, defined as an extreme feeling of inner restlessness. This condition is caused by anti-psychotic drugs and is recognized as leading to suicidal and homicidal-suicidal feelings.

Hydrofluorosilicic acid is the exact chemical name for the fluoride that is placed into our drinking water. The maximum “contamination” level and the “recommended” dose for fluoridation both happen to be 4 ppm (4 parts per million). Interestingly, a pediatrician is prohibited from giving any child under the age of 6 months ANY fluoride, as it is too toxic. Yet we see extra fluoride added to bottled water for infants and, of course, they place it in our drinking water for all to consume.

This mad, mass medication, fortunately, can be removed with my newest fluoride removal systems. I have two systems available, which also remove other pollutants such as arsenic, lead, mercury, and chloramines from your household water. Both, the Deluxe Whole House Filter System and the Deluxe Under the Kitchen Sink Filter can be tested by an outside 3rd party lab to show fluoride at non-detectable levels.

Debra Lynn Dadd, leading “Green” author and origin of Debra’s List, a resource for green and natural products, have endorsed our water filters. Her website is www.dld123.com. If you click on the Debra’s list link and search the water page, you can see what she has to say about my water systems. In the midst of all this madness, there is a spark of hope with a real solution.

Global Warming: A Dangerous Political Agenda

GLOBAL POLLUTION and the “greenhouse gases” are currently a BIG issue worldwide. Every government in the world is focused on the “global warming” issue. In truth, we are the polluters of the planet as we should not be producing such large quantities of CO2 emissions.

Historically, we have been conquerors, rather than stewards, and the time has come to take some responsibility for the pollution that we have created before the planet degrades any further. Though the worldwide focus is on greenhouse gases (CO2), we have other much more important issues to address such as the proper disposition of plastic, discovering a method to neutralize hot radioactive nuclear waste, finding a proper method to handle highly toxic air pollution, and proper handling of many hundreds of thousands of toxic chemicals.

Plastic Pollution, the real Global Pollution http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdiCmmVs1HM&mode=related&search=

This is a poor quality film but good data on how plastic does not breakdown and that there are corn and soy plastics that do break down.

Special interest groups are using carbon dioxide to create a “political agenda” to further tax and suppress the people. There is a plan to heavily tax any countries that emit “excessive” CO2 gases. Big money, heavy embargo laws, and domination are the desired results sought under the name of Global Warming and Green House Gases- CO2. The truth is that it has not been proven that CO2 causes the temperatures to rise. [It is caused from sunspots and storms as these are truly powerful and have cyclic reoccurrence.] Scientists and climatologists are speaking out and telling us that our planet is going through a NATURAL warming phase and cooling phases. It is expected that we will be entering a cooling phase very soon that will level off the warm weather.

Why is Greenland called Greenland when it is a blanket of snow today? Did you know it was green and grew vineyards during the Middle Ages? These vineyards still exist under the snow.

Despite all the scientific proof that exists, if you disagree with the current ideology regarding the cause of Global Warming, you are a heretic! If you are a scientist and you dare to dissent, you lose your funding or you lose your job.

While the main stream media is trying to scare you to death, how about a breath of the fresh air of truth! Ice cores prove that 1000 years ago there was a Medieval Warm period that was 5-6 degrees hotter than our present time. 140 years ago, we had a little ice age – the coldest point was in 1875.

Why does Al Gore’s and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s climate charts show that the 20th century is the only warm period in history? Why are their charts leaving out the highs and lows of climatic temperature changes showing that warming is a part of the cyclical normal global climate?

If you would like to see what climatologists are saying about Global Warming, take a look and decide for yourself!

CBC – Global Warming Doomsday Called off

As an inventor, I have been aware of the existence of free and clean energy that has existed since the late 1920s. Clean energy, such as water burning cars and engines, solar voltaic electricity, wind and wave power generators…etc. exists and should be commonly used. We should be focusing on getting these technologies unsuppressed and developed for mass use!

The oil companies have kept us in their stranglehold for too long. Alcohol, water, and other non-toxic bio fuels have existed for almost a century, but the oil companies have managed to suppress them all during the last 80 years. With the Internet, many of these lost technologies are surfacing.

A new civilization (the Age of Aquarius) of freethinking environmental stewards of health and freedom is rising. While we remain vigilant of the need to protect our freedoms from the old civilization, we should also be actively contributing to the new civilization and adopting its ways.

Final Proof On Brain Damage From Drinking Water

Who in their right mind would risk brain damage, lowering their child’s intelligence in order to reduce a small amount of tooth decay, for which the evidence is very weak and extremely controversial?

Indian study proves that fluoride consumption causes brain, neurological damage

At Home Water Filtration

The system that remove toxins down to non detectable levels!

The first part of the system is an Earth Core™ water conditioner.  It is an Electro-Mechanical Water Conditioner (NOT a magnet nor a chemical system). The conditioner creates wetter & softer water through the addition of negative electrons and by “restructuring” the water, so that the water filters last longer, as well as protecting all household appliances that are connected to the water source. It does this by preventing and removing limescale build up as well as algae growth.

The second part of the system consists of a 3-tank multi-media system that removes the fluoride, arsenic, chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals without removing the beneficial alkaline minerals.

Each tank has a specific function to remove  specific targeted toxic elements.

One would hope that the cities that fluoridate the water would use a clean pharmaceutical grade fluoride as their source.  However, what they use is a industrial waste – “chemical soup” called hydrofluorosilicic acid, resulting from waste acids from the metal plating industries and the Florida phosphate industries’ waste products.  This form of fluoride has been fully dissolved in solution, making it extremely difficult to remove. [Prozac, a psychiatric drug is 94% Fluoxetine, a pharmaceutical fluoride compound].

The first tank is a manganese dioxide mineral tank. This mineral bonds with the fluoride and arsenic compounds to make a larger particle.

The second tank is made from a special material called Alumina (not aluminum). This material takes out heavy metals and will remove aluminum.

The third tank is made from activated coconut charcoals which remove most of the organic materials as well improving taste and flavor. The same tank also has a large quantity of KDF that further removes heavy metals and help maintain a bacteria free environment.

The 3-tank system removes fluoride at the +/-80% rate. [Custom built units can be made so that the percentage can be higher. The cities are starting to use different types of treatment so that a more acidified fluoride can be added, which is significantly harder to remove.

Therefore,  we always use actual water tests for that city so that you are not not dealing with “generalities,” but know what is in your water and that our filters remove the fluoride (and other issues).  Just because the contaminants are removed successfully in one city, it does not mean that they will be removed successfully in another city, due to the different qualities of water.

Water testing totally exposes all challenges.  We have a water testing lab that we have been working with for many years that we will refer you to.  They will perform a 93 item water test for you that will tell you everything  you need to know.  We pass our wholesale cost on to you for this water test.

The additional Ideal Earth Water Under the Sink System is added to the Ideal Earth Water Whole House system to remove any remaining fluoride down to non-detectable levels.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

For people who are in apartments or can only fit a small water filtration system under their sink this double tank system with a prefilter works perfectly!

Removes chlorine, chloramines,  heavy metals and chlorine by-products with special emphasis on fluoride, and arsenic,  to NON-DETECTABLE levels. This is the only filter on the market that is able to remove these toxic chemicals without removing the naturally occurring alkaline minerals.

Filter last up to 7-10 years with automatic backflushing system and only a minimal sediment filter replacement once a year.

This system is usually installed in the kitchen with a separate faucet. This is a big system, containing

  • First tank weighing 36 pounds, which removes fluoride and heavy metals
  • Second tank weighing 20 pounds, which removes volatile organic compunds, chlorine, chloramines
  • T-valve
  • Faucet
  • Seven feet of water line
  • Prefilter
  • Postfilter plus bracket
  • Instructions

The Ideal Earth Water Under the Sink System provides tasty, healthy drinking and cooking water at the kitchen sink.  This allows us to remove fluoride to non-detectable levels, plus “polish” the water to further give one the highest quality water possible, while keeping the wholesome minerals that make water healthy.

If you want to have truly healthy water from the tap without the toxic additives from the city and still have all of the minerals that belong in it, call me.

Fluoride Removal Material

Activated alumina is made of aluminium oxide (alumina; Al2O3), the same chemical substance as sapphi

Activated Alumina Activated alumina is made of aluminium oxide (alumina; Al2O3), the same chemical substance as sapphire and rubies (but without the impurities that give those gems their color). It is manufactured from aluminium hydroxide by dehydroxylating it in a way that produces a highly porous material; this material can have a surface area significantly over 200 m2/g. Activated alumina has a very high surface-area-to-weight ratio. That means it has a lot of very small pores, almost like tunnels, that run throughout it. It has large capacity of absorption, high surface area, high mechanical strength and thermal stability. Activated alumina is used widely in chemical, petrochemical and fertilizer industries as desiccant, absorbent, catalyst carrier, and as a filter of fluoride, arsenic and selenium in drinking water.

Catalyst application Activated alumina is used for a wide range of adsorbent and catalyst applications including the adsorption of catalysts in polyethylene production, in hydrogen peroxide production, as a selective adsorbent for many chemicals including arsenic, fluoride, in sulfur removal from gas streams (Claus Catalyst process).

Desiccant* Use as a desiccant, it works by a process called adsorption. The water in the air actually sticks to the alumina itself in between the tiny passages, as the air passes through them. The water molecules become trapped so that the air is dried out as it passes through the filter. This process is reversible, and if the alumina desiccant is heated to about 200C it will release all of the water stored in it. This process is called regenerating the desiccant.

Desiccant* a substance that promotes drying (e.g., calcium oxide absorbs water and is used to remove moisture)

Fluoride absorbent Activated alumina is also widely used to remove fluoride from drinking water. In the US, there are widespread programs to fluoridate drinking water. However, in certain regions, such as the Jaipur region of India, there is enough fluorine in the water to cause fluorosis. Activated alumina filters can easily reduce fluoride levels from 0.5ppm to less than 0.1ppm. Note: Maximum contamination level that cities can add fluoride up to is 4ppm, yet, in Jaipur, India, 0.5 ppm is causing fluorosis! Therefore, the reports that state that 0.85ppm is sufficient to make 25% of the population get fluorosis is most likely true.

FAQ

Rest Easy™ and Inner Garden™ Q&A

  • What is the source of Inner Garden™? Inner Garden™ is a culture that occurs naturally in Nature. (non-GMO)  It is a full spectrum soil-based microbial ecosystem.  If we all ate fresh organic fruits and vegetables from mineral-rich gardens that were not extensively washed, we would be getting this culture on and in our food.
  • How should I take Inner Garden™?  The best way to consume Inner Garden is in some milk, almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk, a smoothie, thinned yogurt, kefir, juice, or warm broth.  This gives the culture some food and helps it get through the stomach more rapidly.  It is beneficial to take 1-2 Tablespoons 3-5 times per day for the first week to help handle any imbalances in your gut flora.  When you notice that your digestion feels better and you have less “mind fog,” then you can go on to a maintenance dose that feels good to you, unless you have any bowel issues or your diet consists of microwaved, processed, or restaurant food.  Then you should continue at a higher dosage.  Eventually, you should notice that your fecal matter is lighter in color with reduced odor.
  • Can I give Inner Garden™ to my kids? Yes.  Depending on the age of the child, you would give them a reduced dose.  Our customers have had successes with the following:  For babies, 1/4 tsp once or twice per day, while you can give older children 1 tsp once or twice per day.
  • My pet has digestive issues.  Is Inner Garden™ okay for pets?  Yes.  In fact, you can mix Inner Garden™ into your pet’s food or mist it on the top.  If  your pet doesn’t like it misted on the food, then mix a little into the food and increase the amount little by little until your pet gets used to the flavor.  Our cat Sweetie wouldn’t eat her food unless Inner Garden™ was misted on it.  Inner Garden™ will help with bad breath, and make the coat softer over time.  You can also spray it on the skin to help with itching issues. Call 727-2344 for specific questions.
  • What are the white specks floating at the top of the bottle? These are yeast cultures, which protect the brew by consuming the oxygen while increasing the number of healthy yeast colonies. These yeast cultures are an important part of the ecosystem culture.
  • I have Candida or other yeast overgrowth; can I still consume the Inner Garden™ or Rest Easy™? Yes! As a matter of fact, many people have found the following to be helpful in re-balancing the gut flora and reducing Candida overgrowth:  1/2 oz. (1 TBSP) Rest Easy™ and Inner Garden taken together, preferably before meals, 3-5 times per day for 120 days, while consuming no sugar and no starch, including chocolate, ice cream, potatoes, pasta, etc.  If you violate this, then the 120 days starts over.  Fruit sugar is okay as long as it is minimal. Inner Garden™ should be taken with some form of food, like milk, warm broth, or juice, while Rest Easy™ can be consumed as is.
  • Why should I not shake the bottle? By shaking the bottle, you will wake up the microbes that have been sleeping in harmony and they will eat up the small amount of food provided in the bottle for them. Thus, you will shorten the shelf life of the bottle very dramatically. If you accidentally shook it up once or twice, don’t worry, but if you smell a sulfur / rotten egg smell upon opening the bottle, then the brew has gone bad.
  • Doesn’t the bottle get shaken during shipping? When we ship the bottle, we usually squeeze out enough of the air that shaking isn’t going to affect the culture, and the little tablespoon full of air on the top is not going to influence anything. On the other hand, if you have used a fair amount of the bottle and then shake it,  you’re introducing a large quantity of air into the solution, which will cause  the microbes to consume the remaining nutrients, thus reducing the shelf life.
  • The brew has gone past its expiration date. How can I tell if it is still good?

    If it has gone past the expiration date, you can toss it out or use it in your garden (See agricultural usage proportions) but it must not have a rotten egg smell.  If it has a rotten egg/sulfur smell upon opening the bottle, then throw it straight into the trash. It cannot be used. For further questions, please call me at 727-447-2344.

  • Can I put the product in the fridge? Not advised. The microbes like to be warm, just like your internal body temperature. They don’t like cold below 46 Degrees Fahrenheit or +/- 8 Celsius Degrees. By refrigerating the product, you take the chance that the culture will die sooner.
  • Why are other probiotics refrigerated and yours are not? Our culture is alive and active while other refrigerated cultures are in a deep dormant state.  They spoil rapidly without refrigeration. Our microbes are alive, so refrigeration adds stress to them.
  • Can Inner Garden™ or Rest Easy™ be frozen? NO! Once the product is frozen, many of the microbes die from the ice crystals. You might be able to downgrade it for the garden or septic tank use providing that it does not smell like rotten eggs.
  • Why is my package wrapped in bubble wrap,  Saran Wrap and then double boxed? During the winter months, to prevent the product from freezing, we insulate the culture by creating a thermal barrier with bubble wrap and double boxing.
  • I left my Inner Garden™ / Rest Easy™ in a hot car, will it damage the brew?

    The microbes like it fairly hot up to 125 Degrees Fahrenheit or +/- 51 Celsius Degrees is quite comfortable for them. They probably can tolerate up to 140 Degrees Fahrenheit or 60 Celsius Degrees, but I wouldn’t push it.

  • Why are the bottles caved in? We squeeze out most of the air so that when it is being transported, any shaking doesn’t affect the culture.
  • Why do some bottles expand and not others? Because some brews are more lively and active than others. The key here is to make sure that it has a vinegar / hopsy smell and not a sulfur / rotten egg smell.
  • How long does Inner Garden™ or Rest Easy™ last? 6 months to 1 year. Sometimes, if you have kept the bottle out of direct sunlight and heat, and not shaken or refrigerated it, it will last longer, but you must smell it and it must not smell like rotten eggs/sulfur.
  • Can I take Rest Easy™ in some juice or soup? Yes.  Most find orange juice, prune juice, or cream soups help them to get used to the flavor. Even hot soup is OK, as long as it is palatable. Do not boil!
  • I took Rest Easy before going to bed and slept well, but I woke up at 2-3 am. What should I do? Many of our customers keep a small bottle of Rest Easy on their nightstand, so they can take another dose.  They tell us that they can go back to sleep and wake feeling rested.
