My passion is health and wellness. Those were the classes I gravitated towards in school. My least favorite classes were probably government and political science, yet here we are in 2020, and in the last 20 years, if I've learned anything..... it's this: if you become complacent, someone else will make rules and laws that benefit them and potentially harm you.
In October of this year (barely a month ago), Washington DC passed the first stage (a bill) of a law which would allow children as young as 11 years old to consent to vaccination without their parents' consent.
The bill passed almost unanimously (12:1) : the child's vaccination record won't even be sent to the parents but to the child's school.
You can read more about it here: https://childrenshealthdefense.org/.../dc-law-would-give.../
I was shocked and angry. We don't have any children of our own, but that hasn't kept me from fighting for the health and wellness of children whom I love.
This travesty got me to digging. Washington DC is one place, and far away from Texas.... and also the hub of our government where laws often get passed quietly and without notice. That said, states have lawmaking capabilities too. Has your state already enacted laws that allow children to make health decisions? (for example: check out Idaho's law... children of any age can consent as long as they have "ordinary intelligence and awareness".... rather broad interpretation could be applied here😬) https://www.schoolhouseconnection.org/.../Statemedicallaw...
Take a look at this 7 minute video, and then lemme know what you think.... do kiddos have the where with all to make decisions such as these before they can even drive, vote, buy a gun, or serve in the military? Politics and policy making very much affect our medical (and other) freedoms and it's important that we engage in preserving our rights, especially in a time when "mandatory" seems to be a trending word.
I'm not here for the politics, I'm here for our collective health and wellness, and for the future of our country's children. Unfortunately, we cannot separate the two anymore.
Up is down, right is wrong...when will it end? As an avid bibliophile📚 and believer in our Constitutional rights🇺🇸, this simultaneously breaks my heart and inflames it.
I read To Kill a Mockingbird, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Of Mice and Men, The Cay, and Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry all when I was younger. They made an impact on me... each one a little differently... but ALL of them adding to lessons in empathy and history as it related to the times they were written in. If we don't learn from our collective history we are destined to repeat it (Winston Churchill)
I saw a picture a few months back of a school dumpster full of books. (... I can't even😭😭).... they were there because of cancel culture.
And then we have this example of "digital book burning" for the opposite reason. Investigative author Abigail Shrier had a nearly impossible time getting her book (based upon nearly 200 interviews of gender dysphoria experts, parents of girls who have transitioned, and girls themselves) published, reviewed, or even on a platform to be sold to the public because its contents goes against the current social narrative (despite the truth of the contents within the pages).
I'm reading our weekly paper (Epoch Times... the BEST most accurate and reliable news source I've found) and found these two articles in the same issue.
We are at a tipping point in our beautiful country. We who love it and who have conservative God fearing values are also known for quietly "going along to get along". Friends, we will all be held accountable for our actions here on earth, but we will also be held accountable for standing silently and allowing travesty to happen on our watch.
I stand for truth and freedom and loving one another. I stand against cancel culture...... do you?
Dr. Margarite Griesz- Brisson MD, Phd is a consultant neurologist and neurophysiologist with an additional PhD in pharmacology. She has a special focus in neurotoxicology, environmental medicine, neuroregeneration, and neuroplasticity. Those credentials certainly got my attention!
This video and transcript is both fascinating and sobering. Here are just a couple of tidbits if you don't have time to read or watch:
* The human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation... there are acute warning signs (headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues with concentration and cognition, and slowing down of reaction time). Over time, with chronic deprivation, those symptoms will disappear as the body adapts to "new normal", but the damage continues to occur whether you feel the symptoms or not.
* Neurodegenerative diseases take years to decades to develop.... Dr. Griesz-Brisson is predicting an EXPONENTIAL INCREASE in dementia cases in the next decade thanks to #mandatorymaskingup.
Please friends, the numbers don't lie. You have a greater chance of dying from a lightning strike⚡️ than the 'rona . I watched my dad walk thru dementia before he passed away 7 years ago, and it is a heartbreaking way to live out the sunset years of a life. Is your brain function worth the oxygen deprivation? Medicine looks at something called risk versus benefit. If the risk of developing dementia does increase exponentially with #maskingup, is it worth it?
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. 😘
Start 'em off right my friends! I absolutely love that Young Living now has a starter kit just for kiddos!
Do you know anyone who needs help with their kid’s sleeping, 😴emotions, focus, owies and all the things?
* And who can say no to Feather the owl diffuser? #cutest
Have you gotten the all new Little Oilers Collection Kit? Our littles NEED all the help they can get to be healthy and keep a low toxin load. (This is one way to eliminate many common toxins kiddos are often exposed to!). The prediluted bottle with the rollers make it safe to apply anytime!
And FREE shipping with either order since they are both over 100PV.
Which oil will be your favorite ?
This kit will be a game changer in so many homes.... it could be in yours too😘.
www.goodmedicine.info 👈 this is where you're going to want to go to get the good stuff for your kiddos (and for yourself too!)
I really feel strongly that this is a season of personal growth for our entire world.... an awakening of sorts. Even tho I'm still working more than 40hrs/week from home or as an "essential worker" at the pharmacy during our "time alone together", I'm trying to carve out time to seek knowledge as I am led to it.
Today, after lunch, I spent about 35 minutes at one of my favorite quickie education sources: https://www.prageru.com/ .
Today's dive into being better versed in the world of current events have left me 😭😭😭😭 . I may be worthless now for the rest of the day 😭, but this was information we ALL need to know exists so that we can put a stop to it collectively.
Child Sex Trafficking. (I hate even typing those words out 😭 ). I first learned about this industry (for sadly, it IS that) in 2016, and it hasn't left my mind since.
Here are some quick stats:
👤 8 Million children are trafficked each year
👤 Child trafficking is the fastest growing "industry" in the world today.
👤 There's been a 5000% increase in "dark web" child rape videos in the last few years (little kids... under the age of 12)👤 There are currently an estimated 250,000 children actively trafficked in the USA.
👤 The USA is the NUMBER 1 consumer of child rape videos in the world. 😭
👤 There are more people (30 million adults and children) currently being trafficked in the world than there has ever been in any time in history.
" It takes guts to listen, and it takes guts to engage."
I encourage everyone to take a listen to this video and be changed forever. Ignorance is not bliss. Collective ignorance is a large part of why this beast exists and it must stop.
Join me, won't you? If we all take an hour or so out of our "at home experience" to work on something that will improve other people's lives...... imagine how much better the 🌎world will be when we all step outside collectively, and breathe a big sigh of relief. Even if we were to have to stay cooped up for a month or two.... it's a small price to pay if we collectively make the world better when it's all over.... isn't it?
hugs and love friends~ liz
I, Stephanie Gregory, am a mom of four wonderful people ranging in ages 5 years old to 28 years old! I am PASSIONATE about the subject of children and their well-being and as a former home-school teacher strengthening their emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical health is the priority.
We are all in a boat which we did NOT choose. Are you Excited? Frustrated? Scared? It really doesn’t matter….. The only thing that matters is:
Are you going to lead your family through these unchartered waters or.. sit back and watch the ship go down? 🆘
I am going to be so bold as to predict that you ❤️love your children too much to sit back and watch the ship go down. But how? It will take patience and grit.
To successfully navigate these unknown waters, the following skills must be applied with INTENTION and 😀A POSITIVE ATTITUDE:
1. Have a Command Center - Depending on your kids’ skills/age, it may be in one central place or an individual space for their workspace. Either way, you/they need to be able to put their hands on their work easily and consistently. Organize the priorities! “A place for everything & everything in its place.”😉
2.“All Hands on Deck” the family meeting 👨👩👧👦- Communicate with a positive attitude. Have your diffuser going with Young Living’s Citrus Fresh, Clarity,or Lemon and Peppermint to keep brains thinking clearly. This is where you set the ground rules, schedules, tasks, consequences, and ⏰time blocks. This is also where you problem-solve. You can receive feedback about what works and what does not work. However, only allow problems to be discussed if accompanied by a suggested solution.💡
3. Establish Respect - This means MANNERS. Yes, Miss Manners is alive and well on this happy ship. If you have let things slide in the past, time to start a new program or someone will have to walk the plank. Being around one another 24/7 requires patience, slowing down and listening👂 to how we communicate. If you fail to do this, your happy ship 🚣♀️starts taking on water.
4.“Be the Captain of your own Boat.” A negative attitude trickles down.
*Be the number one encourager in your home!
*Honor each child’s learning style.
5. Home Economics just got on the books! 📕This long forgotten art is back in town! Here is your chance to instruct on the “how-to's” of cooking, swabbing the deck, maintenance, pet/child care, and healthy self-care. Using Thieves Household Cleaner assures your family is safe from toxins! Never has it been more obvious than now how taking care of our bodies and minds impacts our lives, as well as the lives of others. No matter how much education you have or how much money you make, if you are not healthy…..your boat sinks!
6.Make It FUN!!! 🎤Sing - Laugh - Be Silly! Making memories last a lifetime! Your kids may tell you to quit, but secretly they want permission to be silly too. Hug and kiss and tickle! Sailing with your family is fun!
7.Take Breaks Often. Getting outside is part of the curriculum. 🌞 Vitamin D is essential to our well-being. The outdoor time is as necessary as the seat work.
8.Incentivize - We all have areas of weakness. Recognize your child’s struggles and help them strengthen 💪those areas by offering incentives for their effort in these areas. It will be different for each child or adult.
9. God gave your children to you specifically! No one cares more about them than you do. Great teachers are great facilitators. This is your chance to be a great facilitator! Help your children learn for themselves. Equip them with the tools and skills required to find the answers. It is a life skill everyone needs. Look at our situation now. We are all having to learn new ways. Teach them while they are young how to learn, and they will be able to adapt easily to situations they encounter.
10.Focus - There are two types of focus that I would like to present. Diffusing certain essential oils helps with both! One is the ability to stay on task. This takes training. Staying focused takes intention, consistency, incentives, and grit. The second focus is our attitude. This is a place where we, as parents, can model a positive attitude toward every situation. Bad and good things happen to everyone. It is part of humanity. Having a positive attitude equips us to be a part of the solution and not a part of the problem.
11.Patience with yourself and others is imperative. Squalls happen. We all make mistakes. Oil up, put your oars back in the water, and do better next time. Lead by example by NOT getting discouraged with failure.
12.Carefully select who and what you let in YOUR head and theirs. What are you and your children listening to in the way of conversation, music, and screen? Is it encouraging and helpful? If not☠️, just say “No”. Again, go back to #4 if this is questionable.
13.Establish a bedtime routine. 💤 Sleep is so important for overall health. Turn off devices, as well as Wifi before bed. Baths🛀, reading, yoga or stretching can also help relax the body and mind. See what works for your ship. Diffuse Peace and Calming, Lavender, Raven, or Cedarwood in each bedroom throughout the night so that everyone wakes up refreshed and recharged!
ENJOY EACH OTHER!
Cherish this time together! Ride the waves! 🏄♀️
It will be over before you know it!
⛵️ HAPPY SAILING!
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!
