You know how you feel about life when your body just doesn't seem to be working right - kind of depressing...  And you know your diet is lousy, you aren't eating right, drinking enough water, or exercising.  But, having a healthy body (or dealing with an unhealthy body) is very important in the prevention of depression and suicide.  People who work to continually improve their (healthy) body are happier and more balanced people.  I have never had a perfect body but I feel perfectly fine about my body.  My goal is to always work toward improving the body I've been blessed with. 

For most of us it's too expensive to visit doctors every time something goes wrong, but now, with the educational miracle of the internet, we can research solutions to most of our own, or our family's, physical problems within minutes. There are some interesting links below you can check out as well as in the "Balance" VIP Links page.  Be sure to check out the books from Amazon too.  I've picked out books that I own myself or hope to own someday.  Books are cheaper than doctors and more enlightening.  Do all you can do for yourself and then consult with the talented doctors who are trained professionals when serious problems arise.  Good luck in your Journey for a Healthy Body.

Lots of love from Brenda (Jared's Mom)

What to put in your Herbal Remedies Kit, or,
Being Prepared for Anything!
    Here are some ideas for a home herbal remedies kit that could prevent a trip to the doctor.  This kit should be a part of any Family Preparedness Plan.    The five basic supplements:
  • Enzymes - Protein molecules that help digestion.
  • Probiotics - To support the immune system.
  • Minerals - Must be able to be absorbed without toxicity.
  • Vitamins - Whole Food supplements.
  • Antioxidants - Pine Bark or Grape Seeds for example.
    Some of the specific natural remedies to have on hand:
  • Marine Phytoplankton - A whole food tonic
  • Echinacea Angustafolia - For prevention, every illness, and colds.
  • Colloidal Silver - For plague, viral and bacterial infections.
  • Healing Salve - For cuts, scrapes; an example would be aloe vera gel.
  • Relax Magnets - Not edible, but good for minor aches and bruises.
  • Flaxseed oil - To help keep "regular".
  • St. John's Wort or SAM-e - For Stress and the natural mood boost.
  • Tea Tree Oil - For fungi and soothing effects.
  • Aromatic Botanicals - Oils such as Lavender, and/or peppermint.
  • Teas; Non Caffeine - No or low caffinated Green Teas for example.

Susie is recouping at an incredible pace for someone with a massive stroke all because Sherry saw Susie stumble - -that is the key that isn't mentioned below - and then she asked Susie the 3 questions.   So simple - - Susie failed all three so 911 was called. 

Even though she had normal blood pressure readings, she did not appear to be having a stroke as she could converse to some extent with the Paramedics.  They took her to the hospital right away. 

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.  Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

  • Ask the individual to SMILE.
  • Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
  • Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE.
If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 911immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions.  They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Association's annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.

interest collects it;

He who doesn't under-

"Where you will be five years

from now will depend on the books

you read, what you listen to and

the people you associate with"


We must find the

answers to these

Three questions:


Where did I come from?


Why am I here? and


Where am I going

after this life?

"One man awake, awakens another.

The second awakens

his next door brother.


The three awake can rouse a town,

By turning the whole place

upside down.


The many awake can make such a fuss,

It finally awakens the rest of us.

One man up with dawn in his eyes,

Surely then multiplies."
