Thank you all for your prayers, Todd is doing better and they are moving him to a private room. He is an epileptic, his high fever triggered the severe seizures. The diagnosis is influenza. God bless you all and prayer does work!!!!!
Isn’t it amazing how the instructions given to us by God are proved by science, even though so many times those very scientists don’t want to believe in Him!!!!
Intermittent fasting may hold the key to longevity
(NaturalNews) In a culture that feasts 21 times a week, fasting is almost a heretical idea. Yet amidst escalating rates of heart disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer, emerging research on animals and humans suggests that planned, regular fasting may decide whether your twilight years are long and healthy or cut short. The crux of the issue is surprisingly simple: insulin-like growth factor, or IGF-1, levels of which largely determine the rate at which the body ages.
IGF-1 and age-related disease
Insulin-like growth factor is produced in the liver and released according to activity of Human Growth Hormone (HGH), produced in the pituitary gland. Levels of both naturally decline with age, which is desirable: high levels of IGF-1 encourage the body to focus on producing new cells rather than existing repairing ones. As cellular and DNA damage continues to go unchecked, aging and disease take hold. What’s more, cancerous cells usually mutate to take advantage of both insulin and IGF-1, using them as fuel. The reverse is also true: in mice genetically engineered to have low levels of IGF-1, lifespan increases to the human equivalent of 120 years, and among the few hundred people worldwide with low IGF-1, cancer and diabetes are virtually unknown.
My friend and fellow followers of Christ, for years we have had those that don’t share our values trying to tell our children that we are the ones that are wrong, they are going about it in an even more insidious way and we need to be aware of it so that we can stop it. Please read and pass this around so that we can prevent more children and parents from experiencing what Susan has. And so that we know what is being told to our children and done to them behind our backs. God bless!
Beware of your Pediatrician & School Counselors, Americans!
Sounds crazy, right? But it’s not. Many pediatricians have become Progressive activists. How many of you are being groomed by these political agents? Let me describe the grooming process: when your child is about 8 or nine, the pediatrician starts introducing the idea that at some time in the near future, they will want to spend time alone with your child- to get them ready for the time when they first go to a doctor on their own, without their parents. Sounds cozy, huh? A pediatrician that cares so much about your kid that they want to help ease them into their first, adult solo physical checkup.
Then, at around 11 years old, the pediatrician will actually ask the parent to step out of the room ‘for a few minutes’. Then at around 12, the pediatrician will tell you that you must leave the room when the kid is 13 years old. MY pediatrician just blatantly LIED to me and told me that Washington State Law demands that I leave the room.
Now, Parents, I can tell you that I always told my pediatricians, “No. That will not happen with my daughter. I will be here to ensure that she is ok. “ They always were annoyed, but left it be. I have a new pediatrician who just told me that I MUST leave the room when my daughter turns 13- which will happen in August. I was enraged. I told her that this would never happen. Further, I asked her why she & other pediatricians kept demanding this. Please read the rest of Short Little Rebels post and experience with this at her site: Short Little Rebel
buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
And you being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven all trespasses,
having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
So let no one judge you in food or drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths,
which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.
Le no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.
Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations—
“Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,”
which all concern things which perish with the using—- according to the commandments and doctrines of men?
These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.
I would like to add a comment to this video and point out that in each new area of research there is more and more proof of the difference between women and men. And I would like to point out for all the feminists out there, that your insistence on having women treated the same as men, puts their health at risk and your attitude encourages that risk. Grow up and accept that men and women are separate entities not equal, but different. God knew what He was doing and trying to change that into equality, simply obstructs every real part of research into the problems that we all face..
I would like to also point out that for those who think that Democrats care more about women, that this was started under a Republican administration and that Democrats are the ones that are currently adding taxes to medical devices and research. They are also doing away with or changing the ability for women to get the tests needed.
I am not a Doctor and so not an expert by any means, but there is one statement that is made in this video that I must correct. Post partum hemorrhage is not only caused by anemia, it also occurs sometimes when the placenta comes apart and stays with in the womb. I know this because it happened to me and I nearly died. Any type of post partum hemorrhage can kill within a matter of minutes, the blood loss is that fast.
This is also a great example of a need being solved by someone who sees it, and decides to do something about it. He did not wait for some government agency to tell him this might be needed. He was also able to work with his peers to pursue and develop this lifesaving product.

Well, we are just past week one of Gabe’s recovery. It’s not been easy and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get much easier for some time. Although, if you watched Gabriel, it’d look pretty amazing. He’s got energy he never had and is smiling even more and bigger smiles! However, the ventricular septal defect did not get completely closed, so there is still a hole. Also, it’s been brought to my attention that his mitral valve has a deformity or “missing piece” called a cleft. In addition, the valve is leaking blood back into the chamber. This is called regurgitation, although, at this time it’s small. There are also two other valves in his heart that are leaking or regurgitating, too. He will probably be undergoing another surgery, just not sure if soon or if his body will compensate for a period of time before we have to do it again.
On top of these revelations, my son was very near coding in the CICU due to so many sedatives and narcotics being given. He was on the ventilator so they had to get his pain and agitation under control. He dropped to 5 respirations a minute. Found out later that this also may have been due to the pneumothorax he developed from having the ventilator (best of my understanding) putting such pressure on his lungs. This is where a hole manifests through the wall of the lungs, thereby leaking air into the chest cavity. This can squeeze the lungs and cause collapse. There was some collapse of the upper lobe of the right lung. So we did CPTs (by a respiratory therapist) and kept him on low flow oxygen to compensate and encourage the tissue to close and reinflate that area of the lung.
Due to three rounds of antibiotics and a 48 hour heavy dose of post surgical antibiotics, he developed the opportunistic disease thrush. It’s a fungal infection of the mouth and possibly the throat that is painful. That, in turn, causes the child not to want to eat or drink. So we battled that. During his last day there, the respiratory therapist stated they heard stridor below the vocal cords which (to the layperson out there) pretty much means croupe. Read the rest at

How have we come to this point, that an unelected agency can, without even the approval of Congress, decide what we can consume and what we can use to help improve our condition in life? Is this what was intended with the establishment of this agency? How do we stop them? When we get to the point where we willing allow our freedom to be decided by a few people, many of them that are just political hacks with no real knowledge of the things that they are overseeing, we are no longer free in even the least sense of the word. We have become slaves with every aspect of our lives decided on by a few elite nannies who have little regard for reality, but only for the profit that it will ultimately make for them. Read the post

FDA looks to regulate natural substances as drugs, with prescriptions from doctors
The Food and Drug Administration says vitamins, supplements, herbs and other natural substances, including water when it is used to “treat” dehydration, should be classified as drugs, and opponents have only until April 30 to express their concern about the proposals under Docket No. 2006D-0480.
The government agency under the direction of Andrew C. von Eschenbach, who became commissioner in 2006, also has put its “Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration” on a fast track for implementation.
But parents’ groups, natural remedy interests, food and herb businesses and others are horrified. A group called Gentle Christian Mothers alerted its constituency in no uncertain terms.
“Please Read!!! The FDA is trying to regulate all things that are considered by them to be treatment for disease. They want to regulate vitamins, herbs, alternative therapies (things like hot stone therapy), even down to juices and holy water,” the warning said. “It might mean having to go to a doctor or medical professional for vitamins.” Read the rest
How sad would life be if it were the same everyday. So many people wish for that sameness without ever stopping to appreciate the glory that God has given them. This morning as I was going through my daily reading and prayer it seemed that I was receiving a message that out of adversity comes joy. I have noticed that when He wishes to send me a message that this is often the path that He takes. It would be easy to say that it is just coincidence but this happens so often, only an blind man would not be able to see God’s hand here.
A few years ago I had total blockage in my femoral arteries. I was able to contact our localemergency service and get help. By the time that they arrived I was unable to move and in such pain that it required a lot of morphine to relieve the pain. I was tranported to ahospital about sixty miles from my home, where I was told that I would have to have atriple bypass to open my femoral arteries as well as my aorta. They put me on medication, stabilized me and kept me in the hospital for about a week before they did the surgery. At the time they told me that I had only been minutes away from losing both my legs. I had been in pain for years but had not had a Doctor that had done an ultrasound. I am not saying that this was negligence on anyone’s part since I suffer from a auto-immune diseasecalled psoratic arthritis. Everyone, including me assumed that the pain in my hips came from this.

This is an important story about a young man named Gabriel who is in the fight of his life. Please keep him in your prayers and pass this story along via twitter, FB and everywhere else. If you would like to repost I would consider it a blessing, but most important is to pray for this young man and his family. When I asked if I could repost this, Rebecca responded “Loopy, Thank you. Yes, that would be good of you. Gabriel fights daily to be well and to do the things he does. He’s a brilliant little one with a heart of gold already. We worry about the many issues he has, to include CHD (congenital heart disease) and CHF (congestive heart failure). He also has already had chest surgery to remove a precancerous mass from behind his heart. So now, to top all off, we are on very high alert for Leukemia. If we were ever denied help because of his medical history (IE Down Syndrome), I don’t know what I’d do. I’d probably turn into the equivalent of the father on the movie in which his child needed a heart transplant?, he no longer had money, and the insurance was gone, as well. He held up the hospital staff (John Q with Denzel Washington)…and forced them to operate. Noone can ever say what they would feel in their heart when their child is facing a life threatening situation. You are great for offering up the chance for more prayers. His last surgery, I had five churches and their congregations praying when he had the previous chest surgery in late May. It would be a blessing to him and myself. Thank you. I happily accept whatever help can be given, prayers being the most meaningful and beneficial of any help out there. Blessings, Rebecca”
Here is a part of Gabriel’s story:Although I’m 15 months late starting this, it seems a most critical time to begin journaling about you. At this moment, doctors are deciding when you will have your heart surgery, Gabriel. They say you need to have it done before RSV season hits. Your heart is enlarging and the “shunt” to your lungs is increasing so that means pressure in your lungs is increasing. That isn’t how it’s supposed to go so the doctors want to fix the holes in your heart. You have two. One that is in the lower part of your heart called a VSD and the other is in the upper part of your heart that is called a PFO. They are also planning your immunization against RSV. It’s a monthly shot you will get to keep you from getting this respiratory virus. See, the reason you need it is because of those two holes in your heart. They make you susceptible to severe illness should you get this virus. And we don’t want that! Anything mommy can do to help you get well and stay well, you can count on me to do it. Yes, your surgery is a big deal but it’s a much bigger deal if you don’t do it. You are such a valuable addition to the world. They don’t know how lucky they are to have you in it. It’s my job to give you every opportunity to grow, learn, laugh and play. It’s also my responsibility to protect you and teach you. This surgery will give us years and years longer to accomplish our love crusade. So, surgery will be within the next several weeks to two months. It’s a waiting game for us now.

FDA Says You Have No Fundamental Right to Grow or Eat Healthy Food, It’s a Privilege (via Before It’s News)
Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net
Source: Truth Offering- Truth Contributor
Here’s a quick follow-up article to the one posted a few days ago about the Rawesome Food Club raid. Feast your eyes on the following statements released by the Food and Drug Administration regarding the raid.
Note: Below, ‘Plaintiffs’ refers to James Stewart, Rawesome’s founder, Sharon Palmer, owner of Healthy Family Farms, and Victoria Bloch. The trio were charged with the production and sale of unpasteurized goat milk, goat cheese, and other products; and with “mislabeling cheese.” They were also charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit a crime.
According to the FDA…
“Plaintiffs’ assertion of a new ‘fundamental right’ to produce, obtain, and consume unpasteurized milk lacks any support in law.
“There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds.”
“Plaintiffs’ assertion of a ‘fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families,’ is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish.”
I’m gonna say something real crazy here: if the above statements released by the FDA don’t freak you out, you’re clueless and a big part of the problem. The fact that they can state that all Americans don’t have a “fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is downright dictatorial. If the Constitution doesn’t protect us with respect to what we choose to eat or not eat, it’s a useless document…
…useless because it seems those who rule over us have no reason to abide by it. Why have a Constitution if government agencies risk nothing by ignoring it? Instead, the FDA should be punished. Every agent involved, from the FDA down to the clueless LAPD drones who blindly accepted their orders, should be jailed. After all, they are the ones who committed a crime on that day; not James Stewart, Sharon Palmer and Victoria Bloch.
And this is why my hope is dwindling for our future. Things like this occur and no one cares. Not a blip on the radar for most. They just continue on with their daily routines, not the slightest bit aware that every day, another theft of liberty occurs, trickling away the rights our forefathers fought and died to obtain. Doesn’t that disgust you!? Doesn’t that make you sick!?
I’ve grown more and more contemptuous toward those who are ignorant and content in that ignorance. These are the true enemy of the free. These are the people who represent the ultimate problem; not the ruling elite. Because if everyone woke up, the ruling elite would no longer be rulers.
Those around you are the problem. Wake them up…or we’re doomed to serfdom…or worse.

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as
her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.
The ball hit one of the men.
He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.
The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately went to apologize. ‘Please allow me to help. I’m a Physical Therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you’d allow me, she told him.
‘Oh, no, I’ll be all right. I’ll be fine in a few minutes,’ the man replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands there at his groin.
At her persistence, however, he finally allowed her to help. She gently
took his hands away and laid them to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside.
She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments and
asked, ‘How does that feel’?
He replied:” It feels great, but I still think my thumb’s broken.”
Abortionist admits: babies sometimes born alive and left ‘wiggling around in the toilet’(via Life Science News)
Abortionist admits: babies sometimes born alive and left ‘wiggling around in the toilet’
ORLANDO, Florida, July 26, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In disturbing testimony during court proceedings against a well-known Florida abortionist, a fellow abortionist reportedly admitted that some aborted children are delivered alive and left “wiggling around in the toilet,” where they are allowed to die.
The testimony occurred during proceedings against abortionist James Pendergraft, who was forced to pay over $36 million last week for a botched procedure that left its intended target alive, but severely disabled.
Pendergraft, who was convicted of felony extortion in 2001, was told by an Orlando County jury to pay $18 million in the civil suit itself and another $18 million in punitive damages, totaling over $36 million.
Michele Herzog of Pro-Life Action Ministries, a witness in the courtroom, said that jurors listened as abortionist Randall Whitney, one of Pendergrast’s accomplices, “cavalierly stated that yes, babies are delivered in the toilet all the time and many times are still alive, wiggling around in the toilet.”
“I would say it was eye-opening, but we all know what really goes on in these abortion mills. But to hear the abortionist so coldly explain how they kill the children is so hard to hear and so unbelievable to think that it is allowed in our great nation,” Herzog said.
The civil suit was launched by Pendergrast’s former patient, Carol Howard, whose infant barely survived a 2004 medical abortion at his facility. The girl, now ten years old, suffers from a host of disabilities in connection with the attempted killing, including cerebral palsy, loss of function on the left side of her body, strokes, mental disability, chronic lung disease, and seizures.

if you don’t laugh at this, you are stone!NEVER WAX YOUR HOO-HAAll hair removal methods have tricked women with their promises
Of easy painless removal – The Epilady scissors razors Nair
And now…the wax. Read on……….
My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home fix dinner play with the kids.I then had the thought that would ring painfully in my mind for
The next few hours: ‘Maybe I should get the waxing kit from the
Medicine cabinet.So I headed to the site of my demise: the bathroom.It was one of those ‘cold wax’ kits. No melting a clump of hot wax you just rub the strips together in your hand they get warm and
You peel them apart and press them to your leg (or wherever else)
And you pull the hair right off.No muss no fuss. How hard can it be?I mean I’m not a genius but I am mechanically inclined enough
To figure this out. (YA THINK!?!)
So I pull one of the thin strips out. Its two strips facing each other
Stuck together.Instead of rubbing them together my genius kicks in so I get out
The hair dryer and heat it to 1000 degrees. (‘Cold wax’ yeah…right!)I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold the skin around it tight and pull.It works!OK so it wasn’t the best feeling but it wasn’t too bad.
I can do this! Hair removal no longer eludes me!I am She-rahfighter of all wayward body hair and maker of
Smooth skin extraordinaire.With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the kids I sneak back into the bathroom for the ultimate hair fighting championship.I drop my panties and place one foot on the toilet..Using the same procedure I apply the wax strip across the right side
Of my bikini line covering the right half of my hoo-ha and stretching
Down to the inside of my butt cheek (it was a long strip).I inhale deeply and brace myself…. RRRRIIIPPP!!!!I’m blind!!! Blinded from pain!!!!….. OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!!
Vision returning I notice that I’ve only managed to pull off half the strip.CRAP!Another deep breath and RIPP! Everything is spinning and spotted.I think I may pass out…. I must stay conscious… I must stay conscious.Do I hear crashing drums??? Breathebreathe…. OKback to normal.I want to see my trophy – a wax covered strip the one that has caused
Me so much pain with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to revel in
The glory that is my triumph over body hair.I hold up the strip!There’s no hair on it.Where is the hair???WHERE IS THE WAX???Slowly I ease my head down , foot still perched on the toilet.I see the hair. The hair that should be on the strip… it’s not!I touch.. I am touching wax.I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body which is now
Covered in cold wax and matted hair.Then I make the next BIG mistake … Remember my foot is still propped
Upon the toilet? So I put my foot down.Sealed shut! My butt is sealed shut. Sealed shut!
I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do
And think to myself ‘Please don’t let me get the urge to poop..
My head may pop off!’What can I do to melt the wax?Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!! I’ll run the hottest water I can
Stand in the bathtub get in immerse the wax-covered bits and the wax
Should melt and I can gently wipe it off right ???*WRONG!!!!!!!*I get in the tub – the water is slightly hotter than that used to
Torture prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment – I sit.Now the only thing worse than having your nether regions glued
Together is having them glued together and then glued to the bottom
Of the tub…. In scalding hot water.Which by the way- does not melt cold wax.So now I’m stuck to the bottom of the tub as though I had cemented
Myself to the porcelain!!God bless the man who had convinced me a few months ago to have
A phone put in the bathroom!!!!!I call my friend thinking surely she has waxed before and has some
Secret of how to get me undone. It’s a very good conversation
Starter.‘So my butt and hoo-ha are glued together to the bottom of the tub!’There is a slight pause.
She doesn’t know any secret tricks for removal but she does try to
Hide her laughter from me.She wants to know exactly where the wax is located ‘Are we talking
Cheeks or hoo-ha?’She’s laughing out loud by now … I can hear her.I give her the rundown and she suggests I call the number on the side
of the box.YEAH!!!!! Right!! I should be the joke of someone else’s night.While we go through various solutions I resort to trying to scrape
the wax off with a razor .
Nothing feels better than to have your girlie goodies covered in hot
wax glued shut stuck to the tub in super hot water and then
dry-shaving the sticky wax off!!By now the brain is not working ,dignity has taken a major hike and
I’m pretty sure I’m going to need Post-Traumatic Stress counseling for
this event.My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving grace…..
the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax.What do I really have to lose at this point?I rub some on and OH MY GOD!!! The scream probably woke the kids and
scared the dickens out of my friend.It’s sooo painful but I really don’t care.‘IT WORKS!!I get a hearty congratulation from my friend and she hangs up.
I successfully remove the remainder of the wax and then notice to my
grief and despair….THE HAIR IS STILL THERE…….ALL OF IT!So I recklessly shave it off. Heck I’m numb by now. Nothing hurts.
I could have amputated my own leg at this point.Next week I’m going to try hair color……how bad can that turn out???
I don’t often do posts about my childhood, personally there is just too much that I would rather forget. But reading a friends post this morning reminded me of how many times God was watching over me, and protected me from harm.I grew up traveling from place to place across the United States. We seldom stayed in one place very long. Part of this was because my step-father just did not keep a job very long.
When I was twelve we lived in the country in a small town in Arkansas. My step-father was driving a truck at the time, but part of the price of renting the house we lived in was taking care of the cows. That was one of my responsibilities. I would get up early in the morning, milk the one cow that had a calf, and feed the others. Before I would go to bed at night, I did the same thing.
I enjoyed doing it, I always loved animals. The milk cow was cantankerous and you had to be sure you had your head up against her body so that she could not put her foot into the bucket, or step on you. If she did step in the bucket, the milk was ruined. We never had enough money that we could afford to do without that milk. Especially since there were five of us kids with the youngest being about six months old to me as the oldest.
The cow always had to be put in the barn at night, and most of the time it was pretty easy to get her into it. One night it was different though. No matter how hard I tried, she simply would not go. I think that I chased her over the whole forty acres before I gave up and went and told my mom and step-father that I couldn’t get her into the barn. My step-father was angry, but he tried to find her but couldn’t do it in the dark.
The next morning I had no problem with her, but my step-father saw something that I missed. Not ten feet away from where I had been milking, there were tracks of a very large cat. They thought at first that it was a couger, and he and the owner of the property decided that they would have to hunt it and kill it before it killed one of the calves. They tracked it for the whole day and saw it once. It was a very large black panther.
Why it didn’t attack a very vulnerable twelve year old girl could only be because God was watching over me. When I look back on my childhood, I see many times that He was watching out for me. We live our lives so often in mortal danger that we don’t even recognize.
Why did God protect me when so many others have lost their lives? I don’t know the answer to that, but I thank Him that He did.
