I have gotten mixed messages about the hpv vaccination, having heard stories with people saying they wished they hadn’t vaccinated their child because it resulted in death, strokes, severe illness and others saying they wished they had vaccinated and now it was too late because their child had contracted it. In Katie Couric’s show, she shows both sides (there are three video clips), which is nice and it always comes back to do your own research and what’s right for you and your children.
(Apparently some percentage of children under 11 (I think it was about 10% or so?) already have been exposed to hpv, which is passed skin to skin contact, and they don’t know if it’s from the parent, the bathtub, or some other innocent way. The vaccination also only lasts for about 5 years or so, not a lifetime. I believe the people on the show who had illness and death seemed to have some sort of reaction to the first dose of the hpv vaccination.)
Namaste and many blessings***
Very interesting in this episode of Dr. Oz–how food allergies/sensitivities are being discussed more and becoming more widely accepted. And how some of the symptoms, like brain-fog, congestion, weight gain, fatigue, skin rash, food cravings, joint aches, tired, anxious, irritable, and especially those who have FLC symdrome (“Feels Like Crap” syndrome) come across as more mysterious and not directly linked to a reaction to a food. There’s a pdf for you to print on the basic 5-day elimination diet.
There’s also a segment on three different types of insomnia–the “pink noise” is like rain sounds. It basically sounds like my Centerpointe CDs but the CDs have some gongs, etc, but that’s what I have listened to for the past few years when I couldn’t sleep–I sometimes fall asleep while listening and other times I don’t so those times I just consider more of a meditation.
Dr. Oz mentioned too that increasing your zinc level could increase your testosterone levels which would decrease (!) your anger. I recently found a slip of paper while clearing out clutter where I had written that zinc could help with getting rid of pimples.
it’s easy to sign up, they are beautiful meditations, they are FREE!!! :) Have your teenagers do them!!! The theme is DESIRE & DESTINY—what more do you want in your life!
I recently made Sunny Anderson’s ”Curry-Lime Pork Kebabs” recipe. But I made a pork loin instead of kebabs, so I don’t know how long we cooked it–my husband BBQ’d it in a Traeger BBQ (which we love!)–so whatever the thermometer is supposed to show for a cooked temperature. It was very good!
(sorry about photo quality, computer issues or maybe the real problem is human issues
I served the pork loin one night with “Raw Beet Slaw with Fennel, Tart Apple, and Parsley” and one night with Lisa Oz’s “Lemony Kale Salad” (without the hemp seeds) and some slices of avocado. Every time delicious!!!
and guess where I found it–I found it watching The Big Bang Theory! Who knew! My mother-in-law has asked me before if I watch it and I had only watched a few snippets here and there. But then one night I was knitting and flipping around and there were a few episodes in a row. And there I sat knitting and laughing and laughing so hard I think I cleared any energy blocks from the inside out! They say that laughter is healing…
My teenage son likes the show too and it’s one thing that draws him away from the computer willingly lol. (yes, I am in a dance with technology trying to balance it). I recently went on a beautiful retreat with a couple of my girlfriends (where we had no access to technology by the way and I actually didn’t notice it) and I was trying to tell them about this episode I had just watched of The Big Bang Theory and I couldn’t stop laughing because I kept seeing the show running in my mind. Maybe it’s funnier in my memory–probably true, but still, I wanted to share it with them (especially the second part where Sheldon and Penny spin and get dizzy and then do math). So Bratty Pants and Princess Pants this one is for you–I feel the laughter, even if it’s only my own! :)
Maybe you need to see the whole episode or have an understanding of who the characters are but here you go
Namaste and many blessings*** May you find joy and magic around every corner!
and this one is on “Desire and Destiny”– how can you not do it!?!!
It starts November 11, 2013.
Namaste and many many blessings***
I sometimes get the intuitive hit to check out what will be airing on the Doctor Oz show, so twice this week. When I saw “chakras” mentioned in the write-up I had to record it and see what was up! Chakras going mainstream
Kulreet Chaudhary is a neurologist and talks with Doctor Oz about the chakras and about saying mantras (sounds that, when you say them, your tongue presses on nerve points/energy points in your mouth which sends a signal to your brain which in turn sends a signal to the appropriate organ as it relates to the energy meridians. I have written before that for me mantras have been life-changing. I recently have gone back to a more formal, daily ritual of chanting mantras because I was back in that mundane life challenge thing, also known as drudgery, when I know that magic lives in the ether of Life.***
Chaudhary also talks about using mudras (hand positions to “lock”in some energy and bring in other life force and allow them to circulate in a specific manner) and about eating certain foods and how they can affect your chakras (which is also discussed in Denise and Meadow Linn’s book “The Mystic Cookbook”).
Namaste and many blessings of health and joy to you***
