Insurance Bills Are More Costly!

I understand the average car insurance premium has jumped 16% since 2011.  And the price must be greater if you have teenage drivers.  The car insurance industry says that people distracted by their cell phone is part of the problem!  That is an accident waiting to happen!

We had an increase of 14% in highway deaths last year which represents the sharpest increase in 53 years!  That translates to 40,000 people dying on the road last year.

The highways and even roads in the Denver metro area are overflowing.  And yet we dare to drive.  There are so many items that vie for our attention while we are driving.  We have signs, traffic lights, billboards, honking horns, people looking for an address, people going the wrong way, children needing attention, pedestrians crossing the street, stopped cars, people driving too fast, people driving too slow, ducks crossing the street and on and on.  And that doesn’t even consider weather issues like snow, ice, sleet, sand, and wind.  I’ve even known people who had an accident from sneezing and losing control of the car.  Cars are dangerous items and I know I don’t need one more distraction.  I don’t need to be talking on the phone or answering the phone.

For those who are still alive after their car accidents, they can have life altering injuries.  And for injuries that are not life altering, I remember reading an article that said 20 years after a whiplash, there is a good chance of having a recurrent problem from the original whiplash injury.

Are we really in that big of a hurry that our phone is necessary while driving?  Sometimes we simply need a reminder.  Better the reminder come from me than from an accident.  I admit it.  I have used mine, but after writing this, I think my phone will stay in my purse!  If I need to use it, I will pull over.  What about you?

Armpit issues?

You might be surprised how many people have problems with their underarms.  They either hurt, itch, break out, have cysts, or stink, but you get the point.  So perhaps it is time to detox your armpits!

Since you were about 12 years old, every day you have put something under your arms.  It might be deodorant or an antiperspirant.  Years ago, I put powder on top of my deodorant.  Look at the ingredients in the products that have hit our underarm!  Maybe those products are the cause of the itching, burning, breaking out and stinking of the underarms.

I lived on a farm with my Grandparents who were born in 1893 and 1895.  My grandpa was a farmer and I remember, when I was a teenager, a conversation I had with my granny.  She told me when she was a young mom, they took baths on Saturday night.  I asked her, you mean Grandpa would farm all day and come in and go to bed without taking a bath?  She said yes.  I asked her, “didn’t he stink?”  She said she had no memory of it.

You see, before eating processed food with lots of chemicals, our sweat didn’t stink. Before being so stressed out that our hormones are off, our sweat didn’t stink.  Sweating is one way we get rid of the toxins in our body.  When the total load of toxins is very low in the body, if there is a smell, it would be very little.  Now, let’s go forward to today.  Yes, most people put some product on their armpits.  It is modern day life.

Going forward, after your underarm detox, be careful of the products you use under your arms.  Avoid unsafe or toxic products!  That means that you will use a natural product as a deodorant.  It took me buying product after product to find one I liked.  I don’t like the perfumed ones.  I like ones with no scent.  If you have tried without success to find a product that you could use and you like, please send me an email or call.  I have a few that are my faithfuls!

Skin Health

There are so many good programs streaming these days like “The Truth About Cancer” and “Vaccines Revealed.”  Both of those programs emphasized the toxins in our environment and the necessity of keeping them out of the body.  Please consider what you put on your skin to be inside your body because it is absorbed through the skin.  The skin breathes in and out.  It breathes in by absorbing the products you put on your skin.  The skin breathes out by sweating.  People who do not sweat are at a disadvantage because sweating is an additional way of detoxing.  It is good for you!

We love our lotions and potions but that doesn’t mean they are good for us. Make sure they are free of chemicals that are cancer causing.  In fact, feel free to bring items each time you come see me and I will test them.  For me, that is the easiest way to find if they are ok to use.   Findin products that truly support your health is self-love!  Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love is in the air!

Happy Valentine’s month.  Valentine’s is one holiday that we might consider celebrating every day.  I don’t mean give flowers, candy, or  a nice dinner out everyday, but the feeling of love!  If you have love in your life, I can guarantee you are happier AND healthier.

Often people say, “but I don’t have a boyfriend/girlfriend or I don’t have a husband/wife.”  We all know that Valentine’s day is for lovers, but the root of that word is love.  Simply love.  Love others, love life, love your body, love nature, love children, love your pets:  love knows no bounds.  With an open heart, there are many opportunities  to give love to another.  Make yourself available.

Sometimes it is easier to love another than to really love yourself.  Loving yourself means you are kind, forgiving and compassionate with yourself.  Life has hard knocks for everyone.  Love yourself anyway.  You make mistakes.  Love yourself anyway.  You weren’t as kind as you feel you should have been.  Love yourself anyway.  You lost your job.  Love yourself anyway.  But how can you do that?  It is easier to love yourself if you take responsibility for your life.  When you are wrong, fess up, even to yourself.  You can’t wait until everything is perfect to love yourself as life gets messy!

As my Granny always said, life is short.  Let’s make the most of it by loving fully.  And, really, there is no way to truly love others unless you love yourself!  HAPPY VALENTINE’S!
