Households employ different methods to eliminate insect pests, such as gnats. These range from banning all fruits to spraying pesticides. There is a natural and safe method for eliminating gnats.
In a dish or container with a wide top, combine the following:
- 1 tbsp. liquid dish detergent
- 8 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 heaping tbsp. sugar
Leave this solution in an area where gnats congregate. It generally takes a couple of days for it to take effect, but when it does, it will begin killing large numbers of gnats. They will be attracted to it, and die in the mixture.
There are times when we are tempted to eat junk foods, and in the summer, one of our cravings is for slushies. Unfortunately, the ingredients of commercial slushies are truly terrible. They are nothing more than a cocktail of artificial flavors, artificial colors, and refined sugars. Thus, last year, we decided to make our own.
- 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cup spring water
- 1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed overnight, with juice
- 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice
- 1 tray ice cubes
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until slushy. Be careful not to go too long, or you'll just have a very cold drink. Serve in a tall glass with a straw.
Pica (Pagophagia) is a disease state emanating from malnutrition. It is surprisingly common. I suffered with it myself as a child, and my own son briefly showed the symptoms. It is perhaps important for us to mention these things, so other parents understand that we are not being high-and-mighty, and that none of this should be felt as criticism of their parenting. Parents would not be reading this, if they did not wish to improve themselves and the care of their children. With that behind us, let us explain the condition.
Parents should be aware that their children may be malnourished without showing any obvious symptoms of it. This is because most people do not know what the symptoms are for persistent low-level malnutrition, and because having malnourished children has actually become somewhat normal. Malnutrition is not necessarily a problem specific to poor children, for overall, they tend to get about the same nutrition as their wealthier counterparts do. It is not a money issue. It is an ignorance issue, and about 99% of the people are ignorant of nutritional issues. Sadly, this includes orthodox medical doctors. Don't even ask your doctor about it. It will be a complete waste of time.
The Washington Post reported how the F.D.A. has finally found fault in a chemical known as triclosan. The chemical is found in the urine of more than 75% of Americans, and research has shown for years that it is dangerous. However, new research has grabbed the attention of the E.P.A., F.D.A. and C.P.S.C. The chemical is so widely used that it falls under the jurisdiction of all three federal agencies.
Triclosan is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal chemical. Astute readers may already be making the connection that anything that is poisonous to organisms is, well, poisonous. The poison is intentionally added to anti-bacterial soaps, pesticides, toothpastes, cleaning agents, shaving creams, and mouthwash. In recent years, it has been infused into children's toys, bedding and some clothing. From observing the history of the chemical industry, we are making bets amongst ourselves as to how long it will be before it is a critical component of vaccines and infant formulas.
Shingles (herpes zoster) is a secondary outbreak of the chicken pox virus. It can happen decades after the original infection, and it is usually less severe. It may strike people who have had either chicken pox or the chicken pox vaccination. It is often caused by the vaccine, and people who get the vaccine strain get a much worse version of shingles. It can happen many years later. The virus is opportunistic and will strike whenever the immune system is sufficiently impaired. Those who have never contracted chicken pox are at risk of contracting it from people with shingles. When it first occurs, shingles rashes usually appear in circular patterns.
You Should Not Visit Your Doctor
Doctors will prescribe just about anything for these conditions, except for something that actually works. Some prescribe painkillers, anti-depressants, and petrochemical creams. The establishment's resultant help-to-harm ratio is rather disturbing. More often than not, standard treatments actually stress the immune system to make the outbreak last longer. Prescribing anti-depressants for a shingles outbreak is insanity, and places the patient at more risk than the original virus. All of the orthodox treatment options have risks, and are rarely effective. Chicken Pox and shingles will eventually disappear without treatment, and the amount of time depends upon the strength of the immune system.
Snake bites can be very dangerous, and we recommend immediately seeking emergency medical care, if it is available. Hospitals are the only source for getting antivenin. However, there are scenarios when emergency medical assistance is hours or even days away. This article catalogs some treatments that can help in these situations.
Apply dampened activated charcoal to snake bite fang wounds as soon as possible. With some snake bites, making a small slit in the fang lesions is necessary, while other bites leave large enough holes for the activated charcoal to absorb well. Use a band-aid, cotton with medical tape, or anything else that is available to firmly hold the dampened charcoal onto the wound. Check periodically, and re-dampen the charcoal if it has dried. Do not use DMSO to increase absorption, for it will cause the venom to sink deeper into the body.
In high school, I had a class called Food Technology, which was essentially a glorified cooking class. Although, we also spent some time studying the effects of certain ingredients upon the body. Salt was one of those ingredients. At the time, public interest advertisements littered the television, informing people of the health dangers of salt and how it was present in almost every food that we ate. These advertisements were causing a public opinion backlash against the amount of salt that was present inside foods. Most people mindlessly accepted the propaganda, and cheered along the efforts to alter fast foods.
Somehow, removing salt would suddenly make fast foods healthy, and heart attacks would be a thing of the past. Let us not forget about curing high blood pressure, either. Eureka! The problem was no longer the poisons in the fast foods, or even the fact that they are the equivalent of a cardboard diet in regards to nutrition. How convenient this is for the fast food's industry which is no longer to be blamed.
In some countries, cancer patients who are made radioactive are told to avoid contact with children, because radiation exposure is especially bad for children's developing bodies. These ethically-required warnings are never given in the U.S., because radiation is so zealously promoted.
What if our medical people and journalists had the same ethical standards as their peers in other countries? What if they too warned patients to at least stay away from innocent children? The American people would quickly realize that radiation is inherently bad, and that irradiated patients remain radioactive after exposure to radioactive 'medicine'. Think of the financial implications for the U.S. cancer industry, if the same warnings for children were to be given inside the states. The political lie about collateral radiation not effecting close friends and family is a large part of why the United States kills more people with medicine than any other industrialized nation. It is one reason why cancer runs in families now, because the entire family gets irradiated.
We write a great amount on this website about curing serious chronic diseases and ailments, and the brokenness of the sick-care industry that is by design. We do not usually cover issues of general health maintenance. We sadly realize that in this era, maintaining health has become extremely difficult. We have compiled a list of the core steps for obtaining health, in spite of the chemical industry.
Why You Should Only Eat Salads That Have Home Made Dressings
If you eat salads, then you are almost certainly eating some of the worst foods ever engineered. The actual 'salad' part of salads might be okay, but there are no commercially made salad dressings or mayonnaise products that are fit for human consumption. Moreover, lettuce, which is the core ingredient of most salads, has almost no nutritional value. Corn or watermelon would be roughly as nutritious. You will gain weight and eventually have severe health problems if you consume salads with commercially-made dressings regularly. Eating from Kentucky Fried Chicken is healthier than eating from most salad bars nowadays. Do you ever wonder why salads and cut fruits from restaurants never wilt or brown anymore? Our friends from the chemo-pharmaceutical industry know the answer. A week later, the fruits and lettuce are just as 'fresh', you know, since mysteriously the bacteria on them dies as if it were poisoned with undisclosed and unlabeled chemical toxins.
