One of the Best Explanations on Wellness Through Diet

Well worth the listen of this section.  

Pharmacist Ben Fuchs explains simple holistic wellness techniques extremely well in just a matter of 18 minutes. Start at 1:50:00 and listen until the end.  No interruptions, just Pharmacist Ben Fuchs giving you the skinny on wellness.

Digestive health is critical.  Remember to be kind to your body by fixing your digestive system, stabilizing your blood sugar, and relaxing your adrenal glands.

What if?

What if everything that we have been taught has been a lie?  A lie intended to keep the average individual from prospering.  What if the educational system was designed to make you dumb?   What if our entire lives have been previously mapped out by a nearly invisible hand behind the scenes?  What if this invisible hand was not the productive invisible hand of an actual free market system that Adam Smith talked about in his work The Wealth of Nations, but was actually an elite that controlled our reality so that they may harvest our work for their benefit?

What if the modern healthcare system was setup by elites  in order to ensure that the people stopped listening to themselves and instead turned to the rhetoric of science to cure them of all ails?  What if medicine actually harmed, what if disease was actually preventable?  What if modern medicine and pharmacology was used to maintain disease instead of eliminating disease?  What if the disease theory of genetics was wrong?  What if you were able to control your health destiny as Epigenetics suggests?

What if the political system that runs your daily life was a farce intended to allow only those chosen by the elite the ability to be in office?  What if democrat and republican were two brothers in the same family?  They may quarrel, but in the end they will always work together.  What if the original system of the government that America designed was extremely effective, yet through long term planning it has been completely overrun and corrupted?  What if we returned to the principles of liberty that allowed America the opportunity to thrive?

What if entertainment was used to distract you from the true issues in this world?  What if the elite remembered how Romans were pacified through the Coliseum and now, sports is the pacifier of the average American male?

What if fitness is simple, but hard work?  What if walking simply isn’t enough?  What if eating a healthy diet was simple?  What if those in charge want a population that is sick, weak and distracted?  What if they are emasculating men on purpose?

Do you feel as though everything is OK?

Does government appear to be a benefit to your life or does it appear to limit productivity?

What if the welfare state is intended to destroy America through socialism?

Do you feel as though the wars that have been fought have been for your benefit?  What if the military industrial complex benefits from wars?  What if the government consolidates power through war?  What if a Medal of Honor winning Marine General wrote that War is a Racket?  What if governments routinely commit false flag attacks on themselves in order to consolidate power?

What if the currency that you use was the basis of this attack against you?  What if the people that created that currency weren’t even a part of the federal government?

What if you knew that these elite thought of you as cattle for the slaughter (at end of document)?  What if you knew that they intended to eliminate nearly 90% of the world population?  What if waking up to and researching all of this information was all that you had to do to begin to eliminate this threat?  What if the elite have worked behind the scenes because the people would never go along with this if they knew?

What if you knew?

What if you informed others?

Would you to save yourself, your family, and your children?

I would.

Brochures

I created a new brochure while in school and transitioned it for this site.  I hope that you enjoy it.  It is monochrome so that it is inexpensive to reproduce and it is paired down as much as possible.  Lets all print a bunch of these out and distribute them all over.  It could be an easy way to spread the message.

NUTS!

These testicles recently belonged to some young calves.  Those calves, as you can tell, recently had a bad day. Part of my animal science class was the sterilization of our young boys at the ranch.  Pretty interesting process.  I was surprised as to how calm the calves were during the process.  While the calves displayed some signs of irritation, after the procedure, they walked away without a hitch in their getup and are completely healed in a week and a half to two.  Not to shabby.  

Why do we do it?  Well, the reason is because Americans love their meat tender, juicy, and flavorful.  The sterilization of young male calves increases the above qualities.  Like it or not, it shows that the consumer has the power in the agricultural world.  Inform yourself and vote with your dollars.  The industry will sell what the consumer wants.

The Dangers of Conventional Seeds

This is the seed that I was recently given by a friend to plant.  This is the seed that was suggested to him to plant in central Texas.  Glad I saw this warning.  Isn’t modern agriculture fantastic.  I’ll definitely be sticking with organic and heirloom seeds.  I suggest you do as well.  Nothing like a warning label on a seed package.

If you reap what you sow, why would we sow these seeds?

IMG 6547

Highlighted warning states:

DANGER:  Treated with Apron XL, Dividend Extreme, Polymer, Cruiser 5FS, Vitavax 34, Thiram 42-S, and Captan 4F at mtgs’ rec. rate.  DO NOT USE SEED FOR FOOD, FEED OR OIL.

Sounds tempting doesn’t it.

Lets briefly break each of these items down.

Apron XL

The best part of all of this is the statement: DO NOT USE SEED FOR FOOD, FEED AND OIL.

Nothing like a seed that you can’t use for food and feed.  Much less for oil.

Genetically Modified Organisms: An Agricultural Students Perspective (part 4 of 4)

Two major alternatives to GMO’s are conventional agriculture and organic agriculture.  Many of the dangers associated with GMO’s are associated with conventional agriculture, such as: pesticide runoff, potential monoculture failure, and topsoil erosion.  These concerns are unacceptable as well.  The successes of organic agriculture in terms of yield and soil are clear. (Kremer, 2012)  The current successes of bio intensive agricultural techniques are intriguing as well.  I suggest the reemphasis of local agricultural communities reminiscent to the victory gardens of World War II.  I insist that individuals grow gardens for themselves and their community.  A shift toward the localization of agriculture would be beneficial on many levels. 

These levels include:

1.Healthier food choices through the decrease of mass-produced empty calories.

2.Increases in topsoil quality and decreases in erosion.

3.Increased food security through greater biodiversity of fruit and vegetable crops in the United States.

4.Greater national security through decreased dependence on petroleum products.  Agriculturalists can achieve this through decreased shipping distances of food as well as decreased pesticide use through organic pest management practices.

5.A general decline of chronic disease in the individual and a healthier medical system due to a healthier environment.

6.Localization would encourage decreases in farm size, which would lead to an opportunity for greater agricultural entrepreneurship.

The debate over the benefits of GMO’s will continue for some time.  The mainstream peer reviewed evidence itself has difficulty demonstrating the safety of GMO’s. Government economists refuse to state health benefits of GMO’s.  In contrast, there is evidence of side effects and harm to the environment.  The lax regulation of GMO’s in concert with the collusion of the leaders of industry and members of government allow speculation of the motives of those individuals involved.  Furthermore, there is strong evidence against any benefit of GMO’s in terms of crop yields. It is clear that GMO’s have yet to be studied thoroughly enough to quiet the concerns of the public. Therefore, for the health of this world, I believe in the removal of transgenic GMO’s from production pending further investigation.

UPDATE: Since the writing of this paper I have discovered that Pamela Ronald (cited in the above paper) retracted two of her pro-GMO studies that have been cited by more than 120 other paper.  The article where I discovered this is here.
