The past month of so, I have found myself reading much information on the computer. I used to spend maybe 10-15 minutes a day here, but now I am very busy learning more about health for us and our critters. It started out by investigating the pros about feeding our dogs and cat a raw food diet. The cat still disagrees. From there my learning expanded to the vaccinations that our animals are supposed to receive. I had already become very suspicious about the vaccines that are given to people, so doing research about the vaccine damage done to our pets was a natural extension.
I hope some day that the people will wake up and see the damage done to their bodies that far exceeds the damage from the actual illnesses for the most part. Measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc. are childhood illnesses that kids got and got over with leaving them with lifetime immunity. Granted, some kids did develop severe side effects, but how many kids who have been vaccinated developed autism (now 1 out of every 150 children), ADHD, etc.? How about the number of criminals and the rate of increase? How much of that activity might be explained by the side effects of vaccinations? What most people don’t know is that most of the disease cycles were nearly exhausted before the vaccines were developed and used. Here is a website that has the graphs to show the tracking of various illnesses, when the vaccines were available, and the whether or not the vaccines actually helped: http://www.whale.to/vaccines/decline1.html . States and countries track the diseases and that information is available. That is from where this information came that is used in the charting or graphing.
Anyway, from there I started researching homeopathy and herbology, too. There is so much I don’t know and so much I want to learn. Some learning, like the clicker training for the puppy and my birds, is mostly for fun. Other learning, such as the herbology or homeopathy is for a personal satisfaction in knowing that I am learning things that will be instrumental in helping us to live better for longer.
So, learning for me is an essential part of my life. With the Blood Type Diet I have learned to eat the foods that are best for my body. I know to stay away from excess grains and especially wheat. I have learned to listen to this old body and pay attention to the way I feel after eating.
Tonight’s dinner will be a treat of sorts. Financially it costs a lot to buy organic meats and poultry, however, I did find some organic chicken in the reduced for sale section at the grocery this week. So, for the first time we will be eating organically grown chicken. The breast with ribs is normally $8.99 per pound. That is way out of my budget. This reduced price meat will give us the opportunity to taste what I have heard to be far superior in taste to the conventionally grown chicken we normally eat. So, I was able to buy it at $4.50 a pound on the last day it could be sold. Here’s hoping it will be worth it!
To go along with the chicken will be sautéed organic rainbow chard, brown rice, and a nice salad made from lots of fresh, organic veggies. I just looked at the clock and it is certainly time to get dinner started.
Back! Dinner was good, but in all honesty I don’t think I would pay that much again (even at the reduced price) for chicken. I am sure that nutritionally there must be a difference between organic and non, but taste-wise I didn’t really notice much. Oh well! It was still an interesting experiment. Per usual, the chard was delicious.
A moose just walked past the window. I knew one was in the yard by the way the dogs were barking. It was headed towards the road so it will visit somewhere else rather than stay here.
Take care. Have a good week. Until next time……………..
