I've talked to a few friends recently who have asked me about the Dr. Fauci book picture from a week or so ago, asking for more details, so I thought I'd write up a little book review.
Honestly, I wasn't looking forward to reading this book, but felt like I needed to know more about the man who has played such a large part in all of our collective lives over the last 6+ months.
It was written by Charles Ortleb, an investigative journalist who followed Dr. Fauci closely in the 80's and 90's.
In the early 1980’s the AIDs crisis first appeared on both coasts of the USA. Mr Ortleb researched and wrote about AIDS for nearly 20 years. In short, the guy knows his stuff, and was probably one of the foremost journalists covering the topic of AIDS during that time.
Early in the book, Mr Ortleb states, “I began to notice serious credibility gaps in what the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was telling the public about the AIDS epidemic.” He also went on to say that the government narrative reminded him of how the period surrounding the Vietnam era was handled.
(hmmm….. Fast forward to 2020…. I think we could write the same thing!... )
He further sets the stage by explaining “as the government began building a paradigm around the notion that AIDS was caused by a retrovirus (HIV), I watched credible critics of the retrovirus theory silenced and vilified.”
(again, dang this is sure sounding familiar)
At the same time, there was a second emerging epidemic called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. From Mr. Ortleb's extensive investigative work, it was hard not to conclude (following the research of scientists) that CFS actually was linked to AIDS by a virus called HHV-6. (Human herpes virus -6) The government agency (at that time led by Dr. Fauci) refused to take this connection seriously.
Quoting Mr. Ortleb, “I have come to the conclusion that the similarities between AIDS science (of the 1980-90’s) and genocidal experiments during WWII are too obvious for people of conscience to ignore…… while on the surface, the manner in which AIDS is understood by the public health authorities and the general public is assumed to be sane, a closer look reveals that a genocidal insanity lurks beneath the surface.”
(I seriously felt like we could be writing this book right now about the ‘rona virus ya’ll)
Quick facts to break down the history:
1968 : Dr. Fauci begins working at the NIH
1977 : Dr Fauci becomes deputy clinical director of NIAID
1984 Dr. Fauci becomes the Director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). “At that time he is noted for not being an especially brilliant scientist, but he made up for it in drive and ambition.”
Mid-1980’s: amfAR (American foundation for AIDS Research was founded. amfAR’s ultimate role was to “squelch” any scientific criticism of the NIAID’s HIV hypothesis. (It turned towards junk science over valid science)
The information the NIAID didn’t want revealed was that HIV could not be found in all AIDS patients.
1988: an amfAR forum scientists attempted to prove that AIDS was not caused by HIV and their findings were squelched.
1992: AIDS conference in Amsterdam. A scientist (Subhir Gupta, a UC immunologist) presented a well documented paper on an AIDs like condition but in HIV negative patients that had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
In other words…. Mounting evidence that AIDS is not necessarily caused by HIV.and that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is at the very least a close cousin to AIDS (non HIV), and likely from a virus called HHV-6 (Human Herpes Virus -6).
Instead of exploring this possible discovery, the information was squashed instantly. 😳
Had the science presented in Amsterdam been agreeable to Dr. Fauci, both AIDS and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome research might have morphed into a unified study….. INSTEAD, for nearly 20 years, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients struggled with their disorder and were often told it was a psychiatric disorder…
(Dr. Fauci’s basic attitude towards CFS was that people shouldn’t be ashamed of being told their health problem was psychiatric…... Early in my pharmacy career, I remember having conversations with some of these patients and it was maddening. Nobody knew back then it was viral related because of all of the data was hidden).
The author goes on to say that what happened in Amsterdam was a “nosological and epidemiological crime”.... “And potentially life-saving scientific revolution in AIDS and CFS research was politically nipped in the bud in Amsterdam.” No new theory was allowed to be presented…. And hence, the CFS patients were left hanging."
Dr. Fauci instead gave “non HIV” AIDS a new name…. Idiopathic CD4 T lymphocytopenia (aka ICL) and THUS…. CFS was a “nothing burger” diagnosis for the next couple of decades until someone “re-discovered” the link between CFS and HHV-6.😢
Everyone suffering from multi-systemic problems of the HHV-6 spectrum (ie: multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, autism, etc) paid a heavy price for the 20 year re-discovery delay.😢
*Why did Dr. Fauci completely ignore the scientists who were working to explain “non-HIV’ AIDS patients?
👉Power and prestige (he called all the shots)
👉Politics (look at the demographics of who became the targets of fear based propaganda and public health policy built upon the incorrect assumption that only certain population groups could acquire AIDS. And so, for many years before there was an effective treatment - the gay, iv drug users, and poor black communities (and countries) were targeted. #heisascoundrel
.... and now, here is my additional commentary 👇
*What is HHV-6 and why don’t we hear that much about it? Well, it infects nearly 100% of human beings, typically before the age of 3 years old….. With stats like that why isn’t this a common household virus name? It is not a “new” virus….. HHV-6 has likely been around for a very very long time. Under normal circumstances, it stays dormant in the body unless the body is triggered to react somehow.
Conditions caused by rousing a sleeping HHV-6 virus in oneself include AutoImmune Diseases, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Gliomas, Cervical Cancer, CFS, Cognitive Dysfunction, MS, Epilepsy, Heart Diseases, HIV/AIDS progression (and many many more)
To see the full list: https://hhv-6foundation.org/conditions-associated-with-hhv-6
As you can see…. Some of these disease states can be deadly, and nearly all are at least fairly debilitating 😬.
*So why haven’t we heard about this? And what could possibly be triggering the activation of a previously “not that big of a deal” virus?
(This falls in the category of “things that make me go hmmmmmm”. )
*Following the same AIDS/ CFS timeline, there has been a rise in the sheer number of vaccinations that the CDC recommends…. 40 + years ago, there were less than 12-15 vaccines recommended before the age of twelve. Now there are more than 75!
*I had a sneaky suspicion and consulted my Vaccines and AutoImmunity text book, and found this information:
“CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) has been reported to emerge following vaccinations in several reports, including after MMR, Pneumovax, Influenza, Hepatitis B (HBV), Tetanus, Typhoid, and Poliovirus vaccines.”
*I have read in multiple sources that those first studied and first vaccinated with the new Hepatitis B vaccine were those populations most likely to contract Hep B. (gay males and iv drug users). This would have taken place sometime around 1980.
*I also find it interesting that CFS really didn’t begin rearing its head until the early ‘90’s, right about the time that there was strong encouragement by the CDC for children and adults alike to receive more vaccines per the "official CDC vaccine schedule."
These are just some personal observations and I’m sure there’s nothing to see here…..
(PS: tell me about a book you just read! As you can see, #booksaremylovelanguage. This review is a love letter to you. Be well! )
About 6 1/2 years ago, I ripped open the two oz NingXia Red packet that was in my YL Starter Kit and drank it. It was tasty, but I didn't yet understand the significance, or the science behind what I had just consumed (other than that it was mighty tasty! ☺️). It wasn't until I read the book you see in this picture, that I got a fuller understanding of just how much purpose was in that packet.
If you are a science nerd like me, this book will make your heart go pitter patter. (You can find it at www.DiscoverLSP.com)
I've heard soooooooo many personal stories about NingXia Red since I started drinking it myself. One of my health stories is this..... see those glasses on the table beside the book? They aren't for reading and they aren't for driving. I started wearing glasses when i was a Junior in college for nearsightedness.Well, the longer I drank NingXia Red consistently, the more my glasses started bothering me.... like my prescription was too strong. 😳 About 5 years ago, I went to my optometrist and had to get a weaker prescription. A couple years ago, I pretty much quit wearing glasses entirely.
I still carry them in my truck and do wear them if it is night time and I'm driving in an area I'm not familiar with.... but 99% of the time, I am glasses free. (The glasses you see on the table are blue blockers for protecting my eyes from the computer screen).
Can we talk science and genetics for a second? My family has a strong history of age related macular degeneration. My grandmother went blind from it and other older family members have it now. Protecting my eyes is high on my priority list.
Wolfberries are loaded with zeaxanthin and lutein, both of which have been shown to help support eye health in dramatic ways. Wolfberries are one of the main ingredients in NingXia Red.
A sweet friend of mine once said to me:
"You can pay the farmer 👩🌾 now, or you can pay the pharmacist 👩🔬 later."
Truer words could not be spoken.
Is NingXia Red worth it? Are my eyes worth it... not to mention my brain and heart health? Absolutely.
Everyone's NingXia Red story is different than anyone else's because we are uniquely made.....I'd love to hear your NingXia Red success story!
(If you'd like to try NingXia Red and do not currently have a Young Living membership, please message me!)
PS: see that little cardinal peering thru the window? I didn't notice him until I had taken the picture. Cardinals were my grandmother's favorite bird ❤️. I'd like to think she just gave her nod of approval to this message!

Post #2 Corona Virus 101.... The Facts... let's unpack them, shall we?
NOTHING is secure about the statistics being presented.... NOTHING.
Current stats as of Friday 3/6/2020.......
101,714 confirmed cases and 3,461 deaths from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak as of March 06, 2020, 18:05 GMT….. remembering that this doesn’t even include mild cases that haven’t been tested or were tested with a false negative. If the rational person were to factor in the false negatives AND the mild cases that aren't even tested at all...... the conservative estimate of deaths vs illness would be <0.1%, with most of those deaths having primary serious health issues already. (more on this in a later post).
👉 Fact #2: Corona Virus….. A cousin of the common cold virus with a ground zero in Wuhan China..... although strong evidence suggests that contrary to popular news coverage, this particular virus likely originated in a high security lab at the University of North Carolina several years ago. As is common practice, scientists from another part of the world (Wuhan, China in this case) bought into the research, and took some of the findings back home with them. #thingsthatmakeyougohmmmmmm
Additionally, this particular virus has, within its DNA, the written chimera (ie: a grafting) of an RNA snip of one of the HIV retroviruses.... something that is impossible to achieve in nature. Again,..... #thingsthatmakeyougohmmmmmm
This does NOT mean someone can get HIV from this virus... (so don't go there mentally), but it does indicate manmade tampering and a "gain in functionality" which means the virus transmits more easily than the traditional common cold virus.
FOLLOW THE MONEY: This is a multibillion dollar business (if not trillion).... Approximately 20 companies are vying for the right to make a vaccine..... whomever "wins" will make billions of $$$
👉Fact #3: Don’t compare to 1918 spanish flu or any other historical plague like event…. They were all Pre antibiotics, pre- better hospital care and most importantly.... before we had better hygiene practices.
👉Fact #4 251,000 deaths per year due to errors in medical care, 3rd only to heart disease and cancer.... WHY are we not talking more about THESE things? THIS topic should warrant pandemic alarm.... and all we hear are.
👉Fact #5 National Institutes of Health’s infectious disease chief, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said, “The mortality rate (of Covid 19) looks like 2% to 3% but could be much lower if many mild cases or infections with no symptoms are going undetected.” SARS proved fatal in about 10% of cases. The flu’s mortality rate is only 0.1% btw this year.
👉 Fact #6 Pollution (external and therefore internal) and the role it plays in disease and immune support...China has among the world’s most dangerous air pollution... Ya'll.... have you noticed that even when there isn't a pandemic virus in China, many citizens still wear face masks? Take a look at this link for more info...
👉Fact #7 Smokers.... China, and some of the newer harder hit countries are still heavy smokers. In China, an estimated 354 MILLION people still smoke regularly. #healthhabitsmatter
👉Fact #8 the Germ vs Host Theory
I can't take credit for this well written piece.... but it hits a homerun in truth and it's THE reason I implement toxin free living suggestions in my health coaching. Either you are or you are not living this way. There really isn't much of a gray area here.
"The big difference between the two is this: If your garbage piles up in your home for weeks or years, you will invite pests, rats, cockroaches, mice, ants…all sorts of unfavorables to your home. The Germ Theory states we need to continually bring something in to kill the pests, while the host theory states, “Hey, how about we take out the garbage?”
Dr. Julian Baldor, a surgeon, in a speech before the Florida League of Human Progress, talked about Dr. Bechamp as one of the greatest scientists of all time. He said, “Dr. Bechamp proved that our bodies become hosts to a germ only after chemical and mechanical changes have damaged our system and that as long as our bodies and tissues retain a high vitality and resistance, a germ, infection or disease will not make progress. Furthermore, the disease organism will not survive after its entrance into a healthy organism. For example, we see flies on a manure pile, and other parasites also. Some of these parasites may be dangerous and capable of producing disease under favorable circumstances. If, however, we remove the pile of manure, the parasites disappear at the same time. Which do you think is the more intelligent: To fight disease by swatting flies or removing the pile of manure?”
Pasteur was better connected, more well-spoken, and wealthier than Bechamp. When it came down to it, these proved to his advantage when their two scientific papers went up against each other. Pasteur won out, paving the way for the Germ Theory to gain in popularity. Bechamp fell into disfavor and his books listed on the Index of Librorum Prohibitorum (the index of books prohibited by the Catholic Church)."
(please see the entire article here if you are interested in learning more:
👉Fact #9 ...5G - What in the world? What does faster stronger cell phone reception have to do with the virus? This topic is for another post another day.... but understand this.... regular exposure to 5G very much has MUCH to do with how easily people contract a virus or bacteria. Wuhan was one of the first countries to roll out 5G and they have over 10,000 cell phone towers in their city. The citizens of the city simply cannot get out from under that radio frequency.... that frequency affects us at a cellular level. This (in addition to the pollution/toxin load) is VERY important to keep in consideration. #unplugregularly
.....more to come friends. Stay tuned.😘

Sunday afternoon PSA from your friendly pharmacist 👩⚕️ here:
I have heard from a couple of trusted medical information sources that a majority of people who are having the hardest time recovering from CV-19 are those who were self medicating their symptoms with Advil, Ibuprofen, and Aleve prior to ending up in the hospital.
The FDA recently issued a "jury's still out statement", BUT...maaaybee you might think about looking for another way to find relief. #bettersafethanworry
As your friend and as someone who has watched how slowly the FDA responds to sticky drug situations in the past, I'd like to recommend considering the following.....
1. If you have any cold, flu, or allergy like symptoms that include body aches, back away from the OTC 💊NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs like Ibprofen or Aleve) in the event that you might have a mild case of CV-19 or get exposed to someone who might have CV-19.
2. If you are currently taking 💊 NSAIDS for chronic inflammation as a daily medication (such as Celebrex, Naproxen, Indomethacin, Ibuprofen) consider trying an alternative in the event that you do come in contact with someone who is CV-19 positive.
In our household, we've had great success for the last 6 years with daily use of Young Living's Sulfurzyme capsules, BLM capsules (me) or Agilease capsules (Charlie), and then occasional use of Young Living's CBD rub and Panaway essential oil blend if we need any "extra" help.
Stay safe friends!
PS: The above mentioned YL products that Charlie and I use can be ordered at www.goodmedicine.info or please do talk to the friend that may have already introduced you to Young Living. 😘
Late last week, I came across several bits of interesting history. It wasn't until this weekend that I was able to tie them together. I hope you find this as fascinating as I did! 😘
📚History is an interesting animal. It only takes a generation or two before an entire story can be obliterated by tweaking the truth or hiding some pretty important facts. However.... it's much like besmirching one's character with false statements.... once the damage is done, the besmircher walks off scott free, while the besmirchee is left picking up the pieces. Sad, but true and it's a terrible injustice.
Today I want to unwrap some unknown tidbits about the Spanish Flu. The Spanish flu extended from the spring of 1918 thru the spring of 1919. According to the CDC website it was "caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of an avian" origin."
🇺🇸 At the time of the outbreak, the US Military was 6 million men strong..... 2 million of which were sent overseas to fight WWI.
☠️ The Spanish Flu killed an estimated 50-100 million people in the pandemic of 1918-19.... or did it?
**********Here's where things get interesting************
I could not find the following information on the CDC website, but will provide links to the "missing" information I did find:
💉 When soldiers were drafted in 1917, JUST AS NOW, they became the property of the US Military institution. They became the guinea pigs for the newly formed Rockefeller Institute when the FIRST large scale human test subject study on an "anti-meningitis vaccine" was performed.
💉 From January thru June 1918.... an experimental meningitis vaccine was given to a large number of soldiers at the Fort Riley Military Base in Kansas.
(The Rockefeller Institute is known as the "birthplace for modern pharmacy". )
Here's a link to the official study from 1918: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/…/artic…/PMC2126288/pdf/449.pdf
💉 Sanitation was not the best. The soldiers were in close quarters. Clean water was still a luxury item. The soldiers did not have the best of food (watch WWI history... canned food which has very little nutrition... was their luxury food). Newly vaccinated with an experimental vaccine.... sent off throughout the world to fight (THAT's kinda stressful don'tcha think?).
💉 More of the experimental vaccine was sent off to other countries..... England, France, Belgium, Italy, and others...
Here's a link to a full article about this if it interests you: https://freepress.org/…/did-vaccine-experiment-us-soldiers-…
(It's written by a former federal attorney, Kevin Barry JD)
💉 The Spanish flu..... it was discovered in 2008, was not a flu at all..... An estimated 92-93% of ALL Spanish flu deaths have been verified to have been related to bacterial pneumonia.... not influenza H1N1 virus.
The co-author of that paper is Dr. Anthony Fauci... the same one who has been speaking in the current White House Press Briefings every evening regarding our current pandemic.
Here's a link to Fauci's paper proving that the Spanish flu was 92%+ a bacterial infection and not the flu itself causing death:
I encourage you all to read the entire article above about the vaccine experiment. It's the invisible history that should be in history books, but was never even made a mention. History was one of my favorite subjects, and I remember writing two papers on the Spanish Flu for some reason back in the 1980's..... but never remember reading this!
It's important to know the truth and the context of all things as they are presented, especially now.
In my studying, I've noticed recently that Google searching algorithms have been loosened up considerably in the last month. I don't have to dig nearly as deep or as hard as I used to in order to find truthful documents (as you will find above).
Please. Do your research. Don't jump to conclusions just because the news or someone with "authority" said it was so. They could be pulling the wool 🐑 over your eyes on purpose, or on accident..... either way, it's still wool..... and it's still your eyes they pulled it over. And that's baaaaad behavior on their part for not using due diligence and investigative reporting.
Know better. Do Better.
Yesterday, while at work in the pharmacy, we got official word of a voluntary recall on several brands of valsartan containing medications. A voluntary recall means that the drug company requests that products be pulled from the pharmacy shelves, and selling of that product cease immediately until new product is issued. It does not extend to the consumer level. You can read more about the recall itself here.
Recalls like this happen every so often in pharmacy, and are not usually call for alarm unless it happens to be one that extends to the customer level (not the case this time). That said, media caught wind of it and began reporting on the recall, causing fear and worry amongst customers who are on this particular blood pressure medication. I began and ended my pharmacy day yesterday fielding these many calls from customers who were fearful of continuing their medication even one more day, now that this information was known.
Once you know something, you can’t un-know it.
The cause of the recall? It became known that one of the ingredients used in this particular medication is a ‘probable’ cancer causing agent. (Ironically, one of the people I spoke to was a smoker. SMH!) Now, before you start calling your pharmacy wondering what you are supposed to do if you are on valsartan, let’s take a look at the facts:
Visit the American Cancer Society website, you’ll see a list of these ‘probable (and known) cancer causing agents’ that people unwittingly use and allow into their lives.
Once you know something, you can’t un-know it.
I would advise stopping reading now if you want to remain blissfully unaware, because I’m about to give you the lowdown on just a few items on the FDA/EPA list.
Seriously. Stop now.
Here are just a few offenders from the long list:
Giving you examples of known and probable carcinogens could easily consume my day, because this list just goes on and on and on.…… and ultimately I will bore you to tears (or wake you up to what you likely have in your home).
I’m hoping by now you see my frustration in yesterday’s moment of media hyped hysteria over the valsartan recall. Of course it should have been recalled, but friends…… we have much larger fish to fry if we are going to worry about this.
I would venture to guess that each person I spoke to about the recall yesterday has more than 100+ known carcinogenic products in their home and garage that they willingly (but perhaps unwittingly) choose to expose themselves to on a daily basis.
If you didn’t listen to me, and read this post to completion, you’ve got some decisions to make. What you can’t choose tho, is to now ‘un-know what you now know‘. Knowing gives you personal responsibility for the skin in the game (your own) and begs the next question….. what are you going to do about it?
Reality is this: It’s not possible to avoid every carcinogenic or body damaging product out there, but there IS so much we CAN do to avoid the majority of them within our own home. There are also many ways to encourage detoxification of the body cheaply, effectively, and holistically.
If this post has you thinking that maybe it is time to wake up and clean up, I’d encourage you to start small in big ways. Get the ‘standard’ household cleaners out of your home…. one by one. When you run out of a product, don’t buy that junk again. Consider switching to Thieves Cleaner (a completely healthy way to clean).
Get the candles and formaldehyde laced air fresheners out of your home, and replace them with healthy diffusers. I promise…. you’ll sleep better, be happier, have fewer headaches, and….. if you diffuse the right oils, you’ll even boost your immune system and provide positive emotional support. This trumps possible and probable carcinogenic loaded products any day. Science backs this ya’ll….. as a pharmacist, I wouldn’t be here if it didn’t.
The cosmetic industry is rife with concerning chemicals. Use up what you have, but as you get close to needing more, consider ‘clean’ skin care and makeup. Yes, it does exist. I’d love to send you a few samples of whatever you’d like to see or try that is not only beautiful, but also loaded with health promoting ingredients. Ever heard of Savvy Minerals? If not, you are missing out.
This is one of the (many) things I love about Young Living. They stand in the gap for us where other companies do not. Scouring labels for toxins was time consuming and the print is small and fine (purposefully I think). I know I am taken care of safely with whatever I purchase for my family and our farm, and that we are taking personal responsibility for us….. because clearly, the governmental entities, are not doing enough of it.
If you’d like to learn more about living a more carcinogenic free life, please feel free to private message me.
I am not perfect in my walk, but I’ve done it now for much of my adult life and would be happy to walk with you as you begin your journey. It’s never too late to start.
Hugs and love ~ Liz

It’s Tuesday January 30th. Tomorrow is Elsa’s one month birthday, and I feel the concern about her living (or not) washing off of me. She is a normal calf in all ways barring her cleft palate. Scratch that… well, maybe not exactly normal. She plays with the dogs, loves human attention, and follows me around like a toddler when I’m outside. Her feeding schedule is now on official every 8 hours (whew!). In my book, that makes her better than normal, right?
As in all other aspects of my life, when the major stress is over, that’s usually when my body lets down its guard and my immune system fails me. No better time for that than smack dab in the middle of flu season. I have been praying that my body does not succumb. It’s particularly nasty this year if you haven’t heard. In our area of Texas alone, entire school districts have been shut down for days at a time, and the lingering effects include a hacking barky cough that lasts for weeks on end. I’ve got no time for that nonsense.
Last Friday evening, Charlie wanted to go see the movie 12 Strong (a fantastic patriot inspired true story) after work and chores. As we were headed home, he said “I think I need an Inner Defense“. UGH!!!! We had just shared a bottle of water throughout the movie. By Saturday morning, it was clear that my sweet husband had fallen to the flu, and I knew I was (and still am) in the direct line of fire.
This is the moment that I take no prisoners when it comes time to caring for myself, and I immediately went in to full throttle defense mode. We don’t do Tamiflu or any other pharmaceutical ‘remedies’ around here unless an emergency warrants it (although I would personally never touch Tamiflu), and my farm guy is already on the mend. I imagine that he will be 100% again before the week is out.
I am still standing strong, but my body has given me clues that if I let my guard down, the situation will likely escalate. I know many of you are worried about this season of illness, but I’m here to tell you that the best offense is a great defense…… Here is what I am doing (in addition to prayer):
Y'all, I went for about 2 weeks with only taking catnaps in early January…. stressing about Elsa, and still working at the pharmacy in a flu ridden environment. Knock on wood….. I am still standing strong.
My goal is and always will be to empower people to take charge of their own health. You alone are the only one who can read your body’s signs and know what it feels like when you are about to be knocked down a notch or two in the wellness department. It is in that moment that you act quickly. The first line of defense is to not fall below that wellness line!
Hugs and love, liz
