For whatever reason, the Lord has put sharing vaccine knowledge on my heart this week. I really just wanted to post about cats and kittens 😂😂🐱🐈, but apparently someone needs this info instead. 😘
Great assessment in this video and quick tidbits:
* Pfizer announced their vaccine "candidate (BNT162b2) was more than 90% effective in Phase 3 trials. (recall my post from earlier this week: effectiveness does not assume safe-ness)
* Tho announced, data has not been peer reviewed or published... both steps are crucial. (key!.... take everything with a grain of salt)
* No information was released regarding how people of different age groups fared with the vaccine....
* It generally takes 10-12 years for a vaccine to be developed and assessed for safety. There simply is no way to assure safety without giving time to have outcomes. #Russianroulette
* Even Pfizer has acknowledged "disease enhancement" is a real risk. It's known as "antibody dependent enhancement ADE. In these situations, the vaccine actually enhances viral infections resulting in more severe dis-ease than had you not been vaccinated. (again.... it generally takes 10-12 years for the safety profile of a vaccine to be established).
* (at about the 8 minute mark on the video) Vitamin D finally brought into the picture in some countries! FINALLY. Countries that have been supplementing their population with Vitamin D3 have overall suppressed mortality (death) rates....... AND!!!! ....... it also suppresses the severity of the cov1d disease itself (ie: quicker recovery and milder symptoms)
(Check out the chart at the 10:50 minute mark 😘 )
*👉👉 At 13:47, you'll find an EXCELLENT self care chart for the prophylaxis and mildly symptomatic management of the 2020 plague.
* What is going on in countries and states where the governmentally assigned "health managers" speak nothing of low cost supplements (ie: Vit D3, natural sources of Vit C, melatonin, quercetin, zinc ) as a means of suppressing the odds of getting CV2020? Why would they not be talking about this? #doyourresearch #thinkforyourself
**** Also of note (and not included in the video), upon Pfizer's announcement that their v@x showed 90% effectiveness, the CEO of Pfizer sold 62% of his stock (worth about $5.6 million). This makes me wonder what he knows that the rest of us don't know?
I will post the link to the video in the comments in an effort to keep this post from being censored. #becausethatshowwehavetorollin2020
Good morning friends! Just a reminder in healthcare lingo:
👉👉Effectiveness does not equal safety.....those two words are not interchangeable, NOR can you assume that using one of those words implies the "okay-ness" of the other.
Here is an exaggerated example, but you'll get my drift.....
You have a toenail fungus, so the doctor decides to amputate. Well, that would be effective, wouldn't it? But is that safe 😉?
Conversely, what if the doctor instead decided to paint your toenails daily with a solution of normal saline as a means to treat your toe nail fungus? Well, that would be safe, but it certainly wouldn't be effective!
When you say yes to something that causes irreversible or unremovable change to your body (big or seemingly small) make sure that what you are agreeing to is BOTH safe AND effective. Otherwise you are playing Russian roulette with your body.

Wow! Such an interesting 4 minute video and worth the listen. Dr. Michael Greger MD is a favorite of mine, and this is his video.
Topic?....... Improving cognitive performance using aromatherapy, 💖 especially in cases of neurodegenerative dis-ease.
I stepped back from corporate pharmacy and into the roots (& flowers 🌹, leaves🌿, and trees🌳 😉 ) of pharmacognosy because of information (like this) which remains largely unrecognized by mainstream medicine..... literal golden nuggets of self care.... which allow us improved quality of life, increased autonomy, and educated self care.
How many of you have seen a cognitively impaired patient who was so medicated that they were almost "zombi-fied"?
Roughly 50% of people with dementia experience behavioral or psychological symptoms that doctors often 'chemically restrain' by way of drugs that are often well known for their increased morbidity and mortality risks in the elderly.... not to mention dulling them cognitively even more. #riskvsbenefitfail
👆 Why?..... because it's easier to prescribe a drug than it is to offer non-pharmacological alternatives. To be fair,few western medicine health care workers are trained in aromatherapy, nor have they taken the time to learn on their own. #notfundedbyBigPharma
Final tidbit..... I don't want to spill all the beans here.... Dr. Greger speaks of Lemon Balm. Friends, that is also known as "Melissa"...... grown on our Young Living Farm in St. Marie's, Idaho.
Go. Learn. Apply your knowledge! Help a friend or loved one out and share what you know and may already have in your possession.

You are the CEO of you.... never forget that!
Good morning friends! 2020 has given us an unexpected load of "bonus" toxins☠️ in the form of excessive disinfectant use. #ugh "They" are squirting, spraying, fogging, and wiping down surfaces (including our hands and our lungs!) in an effort to comply with recommendations given by governing entities, but at what cost long term?
In pharmacy, there is something called risk versus benefit. We are ALL being exposed to this risk (and it is risky.... unprecedentedly so!) as businesses and schools are now disinfecting sometimes even hourly during operating hours.
We are the ultimate CEO's of our bodies, and nobody is going to be there to pick up the pieces of this over exposure except for us.🙋♀️🙋🙋♂️If you'd like to begin making amends with your 2020 toxin load, I'd like to invite you to a class.....
☣️Detoxing the Disinfectants☣️
This class is available two ways:
Texting : Text "Lysol" to 469.425.9091
An online class on Monday November 9th at 6pm CST/ 7pm EST co-hosted by Kimber Elizabeth, Kristine Lucius, and myself. Please message one of us if you are interested in attending the online Facebook class!
The USA consumes 95% of the world's opioid products. 😔
Is it because we have more pain?.... or is it because there has been wolves in sheep's clothing in Big Pharma in our country? I'm not a huge fan of CNN, but I was happy to see their article (below) today.
There are many "alternative" ways to manage pain that are underutilized. Frankly, I blame the insurance companies too..... for, more often than not, refusing to pay for many of the "alternative" modalities. It is my belief that pain relief should fall under the "Right to Try Act" that was passed a few years ago. I've watched and heard of way too many people dying of accidental overdoses from legal drug use. It happens. Don't kid yourself into thinking it couldn't happen to you or someone you love.
According to a legal eagle I know, this particular settlement is rather open ended (meaning families can still be compensated for bodily harm and wrongful death), although no amount of money could be compensation for someone's life.
It's been good to see this particular division of Big Pharma tighten up prescribing. Long term opioid use is an interesting creature. The more you use it to block pain, the more sensitive to pain you become.... so it's really not a great answer for chronic pain (not to mention the dangers of it all).
When I began researching vaccines many years ago, I did a deep dive... going where the majority of pharmacists won't go. When you are trained in the ways in which Big Pharma wants you trained, ideologies become pretty ingrained, and it's hard to think that maybe everything you learned just might not be entirely accurate.
Why do we have such a pandemic with chronic autoimmune disorders and autism? (1 in 5 , and 1 in 54 respectively)
Ask anyone over the age of 50.... mostly the above were considered rare prior to the 90's.
Certainly, it's not ONLY the vaccine industry that's to blame.... but there is assuredly a correlation. The vaccine industry exploded in the early 1990's and children, on average, now receive over 75 vaccinations by the age of 12 if the current schedule is followed.
Glyphosates, processed foods, and other toxic chemicals contribute to this pandemic.
Do you ever wonder why no Amish children have autism?
Vaccine injury is a real thing. It's not that rare. Vaccine manufacturers cannot be sued. They are protected by the government. I don't believe there is another industry in the USA so protected. Why is that?
This is a 7 minute video and if you have children or are considering getting vaccinated yourself, become knowledgeable. Don't just listen to what you learn on TV, or at the pharmacy. Remember, those with the gold make the rules. Dig deep. Do your research. We all deserve to be whole and healthy. 😘
Hey Wellness Prepper friends! A month ago, God watered a seed in my soul that had been planted twenty years ago.
If I am nothing more, I am a child of God with a desire to walk in integrity in all that I do and say. I will not waver from that.
In 1991, I graduated from pharmacy school and during the graduation ceremony, I made an oath👩⚕️ that contained parts of the Hippocratic oath to do no harm. My full intention as a pharmacist has always been to help people live fuller and healthier lives. The industry that is pharmacy has changed over the last 30 years, and so have I. The more I have learned in an effort to truly help people heal, the more my integrity became tested.
While there will always be a time and a place for westernized medical care (emergent care immediately comes to mind), until we learn to love ourselves enough to WANT to #dothethings predominately outside the system of Big Pharma, we will never achieve optimal health. Big Pharma does not want that for any of us. Chronic illness is a cash crop with a guaranteed harvest. The harvest is exponentially larger the more medications someone is on. Patients are ultimately a commodity.
For this reason, I have made the decision with my sweet husband's blessing, to step away from corporate pharmacy practice so that I can focus on helping people achieve health in a fully holistic manner. Speaking truth and light freely could only be done by stepping way from a paycheck that was indirectly also a muzzle.
Unmuzzled, I'm now free to fully practice pharmacy in a way that few do.... holistically. I understand the inner workings of how Big Pharma affects the body and mind. I also know that It IS possible to live "outside the system", using allopathic medicine only when absolutely necessary.
Interested in working on your health in a truly holistic manner? Let's chat. 📞.....I'm in it for the long haul and am stepping out in faith to help others using the gifts, talents, and 30 years experience God has given me. I was created for a time such as this as Esther (4:14) would say.... to help you find your wellness sweet spot, so that you can be all God created you to be too. #Hehasbigplansforeachoneofus
Here's my story~
Good morning friends. Looking at information like this article objectively is important. Just because mainstream media chatter doesn't talk about something doesn't mean it isn't true.
The incidence of myelitis (inflammation of the nerve sheath) related disorders and dis-eases has risen significantly over the last several decades both in children and adults.
Not coincidentally, the sheer number of vaccines a mainstream person (someone who has not done their own research and blindly follows ) receives has also increased.
Protecting your health and your child's health is worth digging and researching.
Currently... we still have the health freedom to make choices. Unless we are vigilant, we could lose that freedom fairly easily.
30 years of pharmacy under my belt.... 20 years of that has been spent researching truth versus "the narrative"..... my position puts me in a precarious place.... being told what to tell people by Big Corporate Pharma versus the absolute science that is shushed and buried.
Part III: The power of the mind!
Early in my pharmacy career👩⚕️, I filled a prescription written by an older doctor. I was a young pharmacist, and incredulous at what I was about to fill…… sugar pills. No, they weren’t pills for diabetes. These were flat out simple white pills made of pressed sugar and probably some other inert ingredients. My older co-worker pharmacist told me this particular patient had been getting them for years to help with her anxiety. Oh really? I thought…. This gal must be crazy. (again, the young naive pharmacist waving her newbie flag). Turns out, she wasn’t crazy, and the doctor was brilliant.
The “placebo effect” isn’t a new thing. In fact, it’s been around since Methuselah. The mind is a powerful tool…. More effective than we give it credit for. Hundreds (if not thousands!) of studies confirm that our body responds to what we believe and what we tell ourselves…. Regardless if it's that quiet mind chatter or if we outright talk to ourselves out loud…. our beliefs and our words (spoken or not) shape emotional and sensory perceptions. We truly ARE what we think we are.
Western medicine acknowledges this as a fact, but rarely utilizes it as a way to jump start the healing process. Migraines, pain, arthritis, asthma, allergies, ADHD, high blood pressure, IBS, and depression are just a few dis-eases that have been shown to be responsive to the placebo effect.
Placebo’s aren’t just in pill form either. A 2014 study in Oxford University looked at 53 trials that compared surgical intervention to placebo. In 74% (39 out of 53) of the trials, there was improvement in the placebo surgery.
The placebo effect works in multiple ways. In addition to the psychological aspect of “we are what we think we are”, "believing" also plays an active role within certain neurotransmitter functions…. Including the dopamine, opioid, serotonin, and endocannabinoid (think CBD) systems. In essence, merely believing that you will feel better activates the body into helping you do just that.
Our bodies WANT to heal, and perhaps our minds have just not been taught how to participate!
So if a certain degree of healing can occur simply by teaching someone how to use their own tools available to them (the power of self “prescribed” positive vibes….ie: the physics and biology of frequency!!), why aren’t more western medicine doctors AND insurance companies educating their patients about this? Certainly proper eating habits, hydration, and exercise should be added to this list as well. #chalkituptoprofit
The sad truth is this….. because we are an “insta” country, positivity, slow food, and exercise don’t generally fall into the “insta” bucket of western medicine. Positivity is cultivated by close friendships and/or family with a healthy portion of gratitude and kindness, and dare I say it… a faith that produces peace that passes all understanding. It is a learned character trait that ANYONE can master should they desire to do so.
Western medicine should be our safety net, not a quick fix.
Mind over matter… matters.
👉What’s next? Part IV…. Body, how do you heal thyself? 👈
If you’d like to learn more about the power of our minds, I highly suggest Dr. Carolyn Leaf’s books (Who Switched off my Brain and others!)
Part II: But first…. A history lesson!
How can it be, that we… citizens of the USA 🇺🇸…., with practically unlimited access to western medicine, are currently among the sickest in the world? 😷😭 Study after study supports the same conclusion…
💰💰💰We spend more on healthcare for worse health outcomes than comparable countries around the world, regardless of age or income.💰💰💰
Part of the problem is the belief in the “insta” system, and how it applies to the healthcare industry.. Americans expect to go to a doctor and receive a prescription for “something”, and they are dissatisfied if the doctor sends them away without one. (not all problems are solved by pills!)
It is no longer surprising to me when a patient can neither tell me the name of their medication or even what it’s for when I talk to them at the pharmacy. They just need a refill of their “little yellow pill”. #blindtrust 😳
When we have 20% of US citizens on 5 or more prescription medications a day (often written by more than one physician), the odds of drug interactions goes up considerably. The odds of side effects and deficiencies rises exponentially as well. #playingwithfire
Prescription drug errors kill more than 100,000 Americans a year, and medical error is the 3rd most leading cause of death in the United States (3rd only to heart disease and cancer… two largely “preventable by lifestyle” diseases). An estimated 1.5 million people die each year from these top 3 causes.
Now that’s a pandemic worthy of being called a pandemic!
We forget that regardless of our heritage, our forefathers (and fore-mama’s) used tools from nature. 🌿 The most dangerous part of living was to make it from infancy to puberty. The dangers of infancy and childhood stemmed more from malnutrition and poor sanitation than anything else with the exception of actual childbirth (a high risk situation for both mother and child).
Our ancestors were not of the “insta” world, and they were loaded with practical knowledge, intelligence, and common sense. #theoriginalsurvivors They understood that wounds and injuries (visible or not) took time to heal. They also passed down healing “recipes” from generation to generation. Scientific studies (thousands of them) now provide evidence of the mechanism of action of these herbal remedies. 🌿 Many cultures also understood that emotions were, more often than not, tied to specific illnesses. (ex: Grief is often a harbinger of lung dis-ease if not dealt with properly)..... not because of superstition but because of biology and physics.
So what happened? How did we manage to lose all of this very important information? We know we live in a “need it now” world where “fast medicine” is king. Where did “slow” medicine go, and how and why did it nearly disappear?
Have you ever heard of a guy named John D Rockefeller? He was an oil tycoon in the early 1900’s who, at one time, controlled 90% of our country’s oil.
Rockefeller was arguably the wealthiest man in the world in his time. 💰💰💰💰💰💰Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie (another tycoon of the era) had money, and they wanted more. These two men were well aware of the many healing modalities in existence in the very early 1900’s. Chiropractic care, naturopathy, homeopathy, holistic care (the most common of all) nurtured mind, body (using common to the area plants), and spirit (The USA was a strong Christian nation back then, and faith was infused into all aspects of life 🙏).
Abraham Flexner (who was neither a physician or a medical scientist) was hired by Carnegie and Rockefeller. He was a former school teacher with specialized training in psychology.
Flexner produced a report (known as Carnegie Foundation Bulletin Number Four or "The Flexner Report") that was submitted to Congress in 1910. The report concluded that (among other things) all the natural healing modalities (which have been around since before Jesus!) were unscientific quackery and should be outlawed. It also called for the standardization of medical education, allowing only allopathic (patented medicine and medicine practiced in a modern “westernized” fashion) based medical licenses to be issued. It was a tremendous blow to naturally based medicine that is still felt to this day in the USA. 😭
Why would this be an important piece of history? Well, Rockefeller wanted more control of the medical world, and he wanted to sell the “new fangled” patented pharmaceutical drugs 💊(which coincidentally had a petroleum base). The problem was that nearly everyone was comfortable using their versions of “slow” medicine all over the country. Plant based therapeutics are not patent-able, and Rockefeller knew that in order to control the pharmaceutical industry, he would need to put the kibosh on natural remedies. The Flexner Report achieved this purpose, and nearly overnight, people had no choice but to move from “slow” medicine to “fast” medicine, and doctors had no choice but to abide by the new rules or risk being jailed or losing their license. Sadly, this is still the case today. #controlfoodandhealthandyoucontrolthepeople
Most history books paint this event in a different light. I remember reading about it in pharmacy school 30 years ago, and (in the naivety of my tender college years) thought it was quite an achievement to have so quickly modernized medicine. I just didn’t realize back then that most commonly published history is slanted towards the victors, and therefore doesn’t always reflect the entire truth.
This history is important as a segue to learning how to heal properly.
Stay tuned for Part III….. Mind over Medicine 💊.

Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
