😷 Let’s get some info out here on the table… like it or not, everyone is a “prepper” to one degree or another. Unless, of course, you fly by the seat of your pants in every aspect of life.
❓Do you make sure you have gas in your car before going on a trip…… ✅
❓Do you keep food in your home for your next meal……✅
❓Have you run out recently and bought 3x’s as much toilet paper as you normally buy?
……..any of these things would mean that you, somewhere in your brain, have a bit of preparedness built into your psyche.
👉Here’s the thing tho…. people, for whatever reason, think about gas, food, and toilet paper before their own health. And yet… if you don’t have your health…. AND you don’t have the things needed to remain healthy handy…… does anything else really matter?
👉Secondly…. Emotions….. If you run around thinking you’re going to catch something, your body is already accepting the advice that it’s going to…. and your immune system starts dropping (I know…. Crazy but true)….. Yet hundreds (if not thousands!) of studies show that believing something will happen (good or bad) definitely affects the outcome, even with your health…. This information is designed to put you in the right place emotionally. Pull on your oxygen mask and help yourself so you can help others! #thinkpositively
The emotion “fear” is addressed over 500 times in the Bible. We are told not to have a spirit of fear or timidity but of love and strength. If you are a believer, as I am…. I take our responsibility to “fear not” very seriously. #ifGodiswithuswhocanbeagainstus
👉When preparing what you need for your health, this is NOT the time to cut corners. (that would be like handing out flimsy paper plates from the Dollar store when you’re about to ask that plate to hold Thanksgiving🍗 dinner fixin’s…. Inadequate preparation could backfire on you if you are asking an inadequate product to do something it was never designed to do…. make sure what you are buying will work well under pressure. #KEYPOINT
👉 You’ll hear me refer to essential oils…. I only use Young Living…. precisely for the 🍗 dinner reason above. 👆 You’ll hear me mention some supplements. Unless otherwise stated… only YL. There are a few places where YL doesn’t yet stand in the gap, and so I’ve researched and come up with some brands that I trust and use. Never pick/use a synthetically sourced supplement…. It’s a flimsy paper plate.
👉 And finally, knowledge itself really doesn’t matter IF IT’S NOT APPLIED…… so USE the knowledge you glean from this.
Now….. let’s move on to some facts.
Post #8: Viruses 101…… What we Know to be True about Viruses (aka…. the care and feeding of a virus).
Here we are, a little further into this situation and it certainly doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. Like (hopefully) all of you, I’m willing to do what I can to help prevent the spread of the “invisible enemy” as I’ve recently heard this particular virus called.
So onward… ( Please refer to Posts, #5-7 for Action Points #’s 1-5). Let’s consider a few more tools in the toolbox for creating an inhospitable environment for viruses….
Plan of Action #6 : L-Lysine: it’s a foundational amino acid we need in our body. Viruses have difficulty thriving when we have enough of this on board. Really… anyone who struggles with any sort of viral related dysfunction probably needs extra supplementation but to have a healthy immune response on the daily…. Consider 500mg /day.
Plan of Action #7: Nano Silver – Colloidal Silver. CS definitely has a place in my tool box!
(Remember, everything deals in electricity). Silver is constantly on the prowl for a single electron. Pathogens have simple cell walls with single electrons, stealing the electron ruptures the cell membrane. Healthy cells have a lipid bilayer, so are not harmed. Here are a couple other colloidal silver tips:
👉Suggested immune support is 1 tsp twice a day.
👉 CS functions better if the body is alkaline.
👉CS functions better in the presence of antioxidants (think glutathione, Sulfurzyme, and NingXia Red) *antioxidants help ditch the die off toxins faster too.
👉AVOID IONIC silver (that is what can turn you blue)Colloidal is safe if it’s manufactured using the right electrical current (otherwise it can become ionic)
👉”Structured” CS — safest and most effective at creating an inhospitable environment for pathogens.
Plan of Action #8: Viruses don’t like sunlight… spend time outdoor! (UV radiation is effective in killing off most viruses on surfaces) Bonus points for also getting some natural Vitamin D in the process! (You guessed it… viruses don’t like healthy vitamin D levels in a body either, so I STRONGLY suggest supplementing! I personally take 50,000iu per week. )
Plan of Action #9: Viruses appear to like cooler temps and low humidity (no wonder they are more prevalent in the winter!) They survive on surfaces for a shorter amount of time at temps greater than 68 degrees, and when humidity is over 50%. I’m hopeful that as spring temps rise it will help the situation considerably!
Plan of Action #10: Viruses like sleep deprived people (because immune systems become impaired). Ya’ll, pray for the health care workers as they work on few hours of sleep in an incredibly stressful situation. And do your civic duty to get more sleep yourself (thereby boosting your immune system). If you struggle in this area, please feel free to PM me, and I will be happy to walk you thru some sleep tips and tricks. 😘
Plan of Action #11 There does appear to be a connection between EMF/ 5G and Viral infection.
**** In my opinion, this is the most important tip at all***…and for some of you…. it might seem far fetched. But I ask you…IS IT WORTH THE RISK?
5G is the accelerated cell phone radio frequency that all the big name telcom companies have been advertising, and IT.IS.NOT.SAFE.
I am concerned that it may be at the root of the virus activity.
Chronic exposure to 5G prevents the binding of oxygen to hemoglobin. 😳What happens when that happens in the body? Oxygen deprivation occurs…. and leaves us gasping for air… kinda like someone who might have a dry version of pneumonia. #soundfamiliar?
Chronic exposure to 5G also Increases cellular permeability to viruses. Well…… that can’t be good!
Chronic exposure to 5G also increases the permeability of the blood brain barrier. Again…. I’m thinking that can’t be a good thing either.
Wuhan China was the first city in the world to be completely blanketed by 5G…. and that happened shortly before everyone started getting so sick. I’ve noticed (check the coverage maps of the various telcom carriers) that the areas that have heavy 5G here in the USA coincidentally are also epicenters of this illness. I do not understand why this possibility is not being explored or discussed on the news…..
Is it worth it to ignore these facts? #Idontthinkso
Your cell phone is a receiving device. Please don’t sleep with it (or your laptop or pad) in your bedroom.
Leave it on airiplane mode when you are carrying it next to your body ESPECIALLY when in a 5G heavy environment.
Those ear buds you might be using….. they are receiving the radio frequency directly into your brain. I know they are expensive, but ditch them and get a wired set. Here is a reputable brand on Amazon:
Please get some sort of radiation blocker device or sleeve for your phone. There are many on the market. I have chosen to purchase from this company because it was recommended by someone in the healthcare industry that I trust. Not all brands work the same.
OK… that’s it for now. Everybody stay safe and I hope ya’ll are finding a little time to rest, relax, and reset during this downtime. And if you are an essential worker (as am I!)… you are in my prayers friend!
Springtime is one of my most very favorite times of the year, for many reasons…. Not the least of which is the anticipation of getting my fingers deep into the earth in preparation for seed planting time.
Spring this year has been somewhat challenging. Lots of distractions, an incredibly wet February and March, and a spirit of unrest that seems to have enveloped our world.
The leaves and flowers continue to unfurl from the safety of their buds as if to tell us that life will go on, despite the circumstances at hand.
It makes me want to talk to the old timers…. The ones who were around as kiddos and young adults during WWII. What did it feel like, to have such a great unknown? To know that a loved one could be taken from them because they said yes to following God and their country? With only snail mail letters to communicate in the interim?
I hope a bearer or two of these memories will comment because I have a strong love of history and would love to hear the stories of resilience on the home front……the peace they perhaps held that surpassed all understanding even when the world seemed anything but calm.
Perhaps this was another reason the people at home returned to gardening in 1942-43? Canned food and buying from grocery stores instead of self sufficiency was a relatively new concept to the world back then.
It had only been about 25 years since the first grocery store (A Piggly Wiggly if you remember those!) opened and self serve grocery shopping had quickly taken over supplying the USA with food.
25 years. One generation. Many had already lost sight of where nourishing food must come from.
1942….. Not 2020.
And then World War II happened…. and it didn’t last days….it lasted years. 😥
Ask one of the old timers about those times. Invariably, one of their strongest memories will be the rationing of foodstuffs. Food was in short supply for a variety of reasons:
🍅The processed and canned foods they had become accustomed to buying at Piggly Wiggly suddenly were reserved for shipping overseas to the soldiers who were fighting and to our Allies who were bearing the brunt of the war devastation.
🍅Transportation of fresh foods was limited because of gasoline and tire rationing (priorities were placed on getting those to soldiers and to the war effort)
🍅Many farmers in the USA were off fighting instead of growing food.
🍅Imported food, especially the likes of coffee and sugar, were limited in supply.
Rationing books were issued. (I have one that belonged to my grandmother.) Stamps inside the books were for certain food categories, and if you had already used your stamp for that product for the month, you were not eligible to buy it until the following month rolled around. It prevented hoarding and encouraged creative menu planning. ( Hmmm …. Seems like we could use that principle these days for basic things like toilet paper!)
Suddenly, the skill of gardening became an asset again…. Not reserved for someone living on a farm. By 1920 tho, more Americans lived in cities than in rural areas for the first time in America’s history so this had to have been hard.
This situation was something they felt unprepared for, they had no land to make gardens. For others, it felt like they were being called home….. back to their roots…. and it was those whom the former leaned into and learned from….. And a beautiful thing began to sprout around the United States…..
They began to sprout up across America and eventually across the world:
👩🌾People plowed up their beautiful front yards and lawns and began growing fruits and veggies.
👩🌾They pulled up their rose bushes and flowers and replaced them with edible foodstuffs.
👩🌾Pots and containers were used to grow gardens on back porches, patios, and stairways.
👩🌾Even public land was put to use….. San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park had one of the best public gardens in the country!
Neighbors helping neighbors. 👫
Relying on God to supply no more or less than they needed.
Back to their roots.
The food, of course, was important, but so was the community idea of doing something for the common good, and the daily grounding… the resetting of emotions and release of nervous energy expelled just by getting dirt under their fingernails. In times like those, I am sure that gardening felt heavenly!
Anyone can do this…. Gardening.
All you need is Sunlight. Seeds. A container or two, or 12 (or a plot of land of any size). ….. And a desire to be part of the solution.
A time to heal.
A time to return to our roots.
If this post is calling to you, there are TONS of seed packets for sale at the feed stores. There are also half grown “teenager” plants if waiting is too much to bear.
Never gardened? Don’t let that stop you. You never know, you might pick up a new hobby you love while in this time of national time out.
The best growth comes during times of adversity…. Knowing that, our Great Nation should be due for a bountiful harvest. The Bible says it. This I know.
Garden on friends!
