Leaving a Lighter Footprint

Our daily actions can increase or decrease the impact on our earth - we have personal meters running at all times. What we use, what we leave behind can be calculated as our cost to the earth. The good news is, it's never too late to make a difference. For instance, we can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 4,800 pounds per year just by recycling the aluminum cans, glass bottles, plastic, cardboard and newspaper we use.

Cold/Flu Therapy

***Update 16/4/2007 The person on whom this therapy was done told me that he usually spends about 2 weeks under the flu each year when he gets it. This therapy was started on Saturday afternoon. By monday most symptoms were gone and by Wednesday the last of the out of balance feeling was gone.

Cold/Flu symptoms can easily be gone in 24-48 hours following intense herbal/natural therapy. There are many different ways to approach cold/flu that work, depending on the resources you have available at the time. Below is a program I used this weekend (minus step 5 and the dosages of 1 and 2 were less frequent - regulate frequency based on intensity of illness and reaction of person in therapy) on an adult with mild flu symptoms with intense sore throat and mucous discharge. Sore throat was completely gone in 8 hours, all symptoms gone in 32 hours.

Asterisks are therapies that were not included but that I would have included if the flu/cold was more intense than mild.

1) 1 tsp raw honey with 5 drops lemon essential oil once every 2 hours
***add half clove minced garlic and a pinch of cayenne pepper and increase frequency to once every hour (also in case of strep throat)

2) 15 drops alcohol tincture of propoli directly into the throat once every 2 hours

3) Raindrop technique

4) Diffuse essential oils of cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus, clove (I used Young Living blends Purification and Theives together. In case of chest congestion/cough, use their RC blend) in a non-heat diffuser.

5) Aid Fever:
Hot bath (at least 40 degrees C) for 45 minutes, finish with cold shower for 1 minute then wrap body from head to foot and stay in bed at least 2 hours if not the night. While in the bath drink plenty of the tea described in number 6.
***Cold sheet treatment

6) Tea: Licorice root (immune stimulant, liver protection, soothes mucus membranes), mint (general system stimulant), yarrow (encourages sweating) and elder flower (anti-viral). Drink from 3-6 cups daily.

7) The person I was working with ate only with appetite, which was very little. This is ideal and the general rule is in mild cases remove all dairy and simple sugars (except the honey therapy), in more extreme cases only ingest vegetable juices or in most extreme cases only water in addition to the tea.

8) Lots of rest!

Hunt for ancient medicine secrets

British scientists are helping uncover the secrets of medicines used by the ancient Egyptians 5,000 years ago.

A University of Manchester team is travelling to Sinai, Egypt, to shed more light on how the Egyptians formed their ideas on medicines.

They will compare modern plant species in the region with those used by tribes, such as the Bedouin, and plant remains found in ancient tombs.

Required Cervical Cancer Vaccinations

Controversial New Bill Would Require All Girls Under 13 to Receive Cervical Cancer Vaccination

Under a bill introduced by the D.C. Council this week, female students enrolling in the sixth grade would be asked to show proof of receiving the new nationally debated vaccine against cervical cancer. If the bill passes, the District would be one of the first jurisdictions in the country to require girls younger than 13 years old to be vaccinated for HPV.

The following is excerpted from Nikita Stewart and Rob Stein’s article in the January 10th, 2007 Washington Post:

A parent or legal guardian would have the right to “opt out” of the requirement, Catania said, but the bill does not detail under what circumstances exemptions would be permitted.

Similar proposals are pending in Kentucky and California, and several other states are also considering such legislation. A bill to require the vaccine failed last year in Michigan.
