Free Healthcare

Wellness with nutrition is basically free because healthy plant-based nutrition creates wellness and prevents or reverses challenges. However unhealthy nutrition creates chronic health challenges. The current popular high fat animal protein fad diet is linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and kidney disease. Human beings are designed to live on fruits, vegetables, seeds, sprouted grains and legumes. Also Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and liability is available on most auto insurance and most homes and public places have liability insurance in case of accidental injury and there are crowd-source funding, and personal injury litigation options.

Cold Flu Virus Bacteria Allergy

811 SUNFOOD JUICE GARLIC
I love The 80/10/10 Diet for natural-wellness and I’ve eaten a whole ripe cantaloupe to break a cold or flu as read in The Sunfood Diet Success System, a whole ripe pineapple which contains natural antibiotics to get rid of sore throat, whole garlic cloves with antiviral and antibacterial properties to get rid of a bacterial infection, and whole flowers with pollen to alieve seasonal allergies.

Eyesight (Vision)

SunfoodWow! My eyes went from 20/45 to 20/25 (almost perfect) simply with raw plant-based foods! I read this could happen in The Sunfood Diet Success System and it did! It says that digestive residues from cooked foods especially animal meat and dairy get stored in many places in the body including the tiny capillaries in the eyes and a cleansing diet will over time improve eyesight. To be honest I had more serious wellness challenges that also cleared up and this was more like an added bonus to me.

I read in The Sunfood Diet Success System that when I eat raw plant-based foods (especially raw fruit) my body first cleans out vital organs (ie: lungs, heart) and later less vital (ie: eyes). I wore “corrective lenses” (eyeglasses) from 1972 to 1989. I started with a minor astigmatism but developed some nearsightedness too over the years while wearing glasses as a high-school and college student and later as an administrative-assistant. I stopped wearing glasses in 1989 after giving birth and becoming a stay at home mom since I had lifelong chronic sinus trouble (cow-milk secondary food allergy) and found glasses uncomfortable on my nose and was a bit squeamish at the thought of putting in contact lenses.

I went vegetarian for about a year in 1978, plant-based and vegan(V) in 1990, raw-vegan(RV) in 1999, 80/10/10 high-carb-low-fat raw-vegan(HCLFRV) in 2010, and high-carb-low-fat-vegan(HCLFV)-occasional-cooked-“rawtill4”-vegan in 2016 winter (vegan soups mostly). My annual eye exams showed my eyes went from 20/45* to 20/40 in 2004, to 20/35 in 2005, to 20/30 in 2006, and 20/30 to 20/25 in 2007; so it took several years as raw-vegan to clean out the tiny capillaries in my eyes, but I was happy and amazed with the progress.

*The first number is the distance in feet you are from the eye chart and the second number is the distance in feet most people can read that line.

Btw there’s a formula in The Sunfood Diet Success System that says it takes one month as all raw-foodist for every year as a cooked-foodist to completely cleanse body of digestive residues and mucoid plaque and at some point there is a “great purge”; however while it’s a guideline I think “slow and steady” progress is good and just about any amount of fresh raw fruits and vegetables added to the diet is very helpful, be patient, make sure to get enough fruit/carbohydrate calories, the body is always cleansing itself, and may be best not obsess about cleanliness.

At age 55 after after 9 years vegan(V) plus 11 years 100% raw-vegan(RV) plus 6 years 80/10/10 HCLFRV plus 2 years 80/10//10 rawtill4-occasional-cooked(winter soup mostly)-vegan, I noticed occasional “eye-floaters”. More recently I’ve gone back to all HCLFRV and will see if it helps with the “eye-floaters” and how long it takes.

If you have any experience with “floaters” please share in a comment. Thank you.

Btw, my occasional “eye-floaters” are like two black spots or spiders that kinda move around and are a bit annoying, not to be confused with “aura” flickering lights from migraine headaches. I had chronic migraines from age 14 to 31 until after giving birth, became a stay at home mom, and going plant-based vegan, then raw vegan, and eventually high fruit raw vegan.

Btw, I’ve helped relieve or manage with nutrition, lifestyle, and service-dog (rescue/adopted) symptoms including allergies, ADHD, PTSD, depression, anxiety, endometriosis, pre-cancer (calcification), prediabetes (hypoglycemia), and vertigo.

Dog Food

Dished up homemade vegan dog food: water, lentils, rice, etc. Can add apple-cider-vinegar to prevent fleas and worms. Maybe add a bit of Taurine? Enzymes for elders? Dogs need one gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight per day (ie: 6g/day for chihuahua).

Pain Management

My favorite foods which may help to naturally prevent and reverse pain include:

Fruit: Most fruit is about 80% water which is believed to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties. (Soak dried fruit before eating or blending in a smoothie.)

Water: Water is said to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Arugula: Dark-leafy greens like arugula are believed to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Celery: Celery is said to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Walnuts: Walnuts contain omega 3 fatty acids which are said to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Ginger: Ginger root may help stop the formation of inflammatory compounds, leukotrienes and prostaglandins, and break down acidity and inflammation in joint-fluids. Add to fruit smoothies. (Ginger relieved my vertigo.)

Curry: Curry contains turmeric which contains curcumin said to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

Chili: Chili peppers contain capsaicin which is said to stop the functioning of a hormone that transmits pain signals to the brain.

How Not To Die

How Not To Die by Dr. Michael Gregor the physician behind the wildly popular website NutritionFacts.org reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death. The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn’t have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger’s advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer.

History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks.

In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day.Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor’s orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

Poison Ivy & Jewel Weed (cause/cure)

Poison Ivy

Jewel Weed

Jewel Weed – Click image for more info.

Poison Ivy (photo left) grows in my yard by the lake and I’m allergic. Because I’ve had severe cases and once made it worse by treating it wrong, I’ll share what I do and don’t do if I get it and how to avoid it. If I accidentally contact poison ivy I apply either Jewel Weed juice – stops itch instantly with one application!, Aloe Juice, or Aloe Gel; wash with Baby Wipes or COLD WATER and mild soap (optional) like Clearly Natural; wear loose lightweight clothing of natural materials like cotton or hemp or no clothing if possible; and wash clothing, bed-sheets, towels, and footwear because the oil can stay on things and keep “giving”. The Poison Ivy plant contains a caustic oil that upon contact to skin can cause an allergic reaction.

Jewel Weed (photo right) juice stops poison ivy itch instantly and is easy to identify by it’s unique yellow or orange flowers. (See Edible Wild Plants.) I read that jewel weed always grows near poison ivy and it does grow in my yard beside the poison ivy. How cool is that? So, I just break off a piece of jewel weed, gently break open the stem, rub the juice on my skin, and the poison ivy itch stops instantly with one application! Amazing! :) Nature provides a solution to every challenge if you know where to look nearby. :) (Click images for more information.)

I avoid getting poison ivy by identifying it and staying away from it. Poison ivy is characterized by clusters of three oval shaped leaves (photo above left). They vary in size and are green, but can have some red mixed in.

If I get poison ivy, I DO NOT scratch as it can potentially break the skin and cause infection under the skin and also can spread the oil and cause more itching; DO NOT use hot water because it will open the skin pores and force the oil deeper into the skin and also spread it around; and DO NOT use coconut oil! I did that once and made my forearms blow up really scarey and I had to soak my arms in a dish pan full of ice and water as often as I could stand or had time for to bring down the swelling and remove the poison ivy oil.

I recently got poison ivy while trying to set up a temporary mooring for my aluminum canoe in the lake when suddenly the sky got dark and it started to thunder so I quickly pulled my canoe up onto the banking at the bottom of the hill where I don’t usually go and stepped in poison ivy. In that moment I decided the threat of being struck by lightening while standing in a lake touching an aluminum canoe was worse than poison ivy especially since I know about jewel weed. :)

80/10/10Edible Wild PlantsIn 1980’s I was into using homeopathic remedies and had success using Rhu Tox to prevent getting poison ivy; however I had to take it once a week or month (I forget) from March to November and eventually noticed it seemed to bother my stomach perhaps because homeopathic remedies in pellet form are cooked cow-milk based which I was unaware of at the time. They are an alternative for expectant and breast-feeding mothers; however I now prefer whole “lifestyle-therapies”, nutritional-therapies, and natural-remedies such as those found in The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas Graham, The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe, Green For Life by Victoria Boutenko, Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field Guide by Elias & Dykeman.

HEAL YOUR BODY – The Mental Causes for Physical Illness and the Metaphysical Way to Overcome Them by Louise L Hay says that poison ivy is probably caused by feeling defenseless and open to attack and the new thought pattern to affirm is, “I am powerful, safe, and secure. All is well.”

Here is a music video for fun; but I prefer Jewel Weed over calamine lotion. I suggest getting up to dance because exercise helps to strengthen the immune system and build a strong healthy body. :) Maybe I will make a video of me dancing to this song? lol.
