Today is September 1, 2013, and I popped in to check things out; this sucks — as I didn’t even tell you who I am, who is writing this blog? Folks, I’m still learning I guess. . . of course, I am JAN TURNER. To bring you up to date, might want to check out “Stuff Changes” dated (1-14-13) or Stuff Changes two dated (5-7-16)
So this blog was started in 2008 because I had this need to share the method I had used which finally freed me from the death grip of the nicotine habit. It was hard for me to finally get over it even tho I was such a practiced person. I had been in the process of quitting for 20 years – but enuff of that – I covered all that in the How to Quit Smoking section. I mention this because in a sense, this tells you about all anyone really needs to understand about who I am and what this blog might be about.
I am a sharer, seem to have a pretty large need for expression whether written words or scribbling around with fine arts in some manner. Have had too many interests in my numerous years to enumerate – – suffice it to say have been a jack-of-all-trades. (or a Jill, perhaps); greatest loves have been my loved ones – family and pets and friends (most of whom are now gone).
As a young adult I trusted that God was in his heaven and all was right with the world. Wasn’t concerned about how government stuff worked or why. It really hurts to say that now because I realize that that is the way many people are. We trust others to take care of their stuff and do the right thing. We live and learn. I was strong, healthy and naively trusting – had no fear of anything. I had a lot to build and much to do. . . and I loved almost every minute of it. Guess that is the way it should be – every phase of life has it’s own major thrust.
I have been deeply involved in health for many decades. With each passing decade my interest deepened and widened. I have become far more interested in so-called natural methods of treating the body when there is something amiss. Here at smokinchoices, the non-toxic approach is the preference. Our world is bombarded and under continual assault by our progressive industrialization of every thing imaginable. In the process of mega-business pursuit of the bigger, better and the more, somehow, we are destroying the planet with chemicals and toxins to the point that our planet will soon be uninhabitable – – unable to sustain life as we know it.
This primarily takes my interest – seeking ways of coping and striving for the best possible health for you, me and everyone including the animals and natures beautiful waters and earth, the trees and the air we breathe. If we can’t broaden our vision to include the health of the planet, our children are going to have it really rough. Humanity MUST focus on more than our own little world – our four walls. We are all in this together. Corporate profits have become so dominant that one would think “that” rules the world. It shouldn’t!
Our food is polluted, our waters are toxic and polluted and chemically treated so that it can be ingested, even tho in drinking municipal water, we are being poisoned. In order to get nutriment from our foods, we need to buy “organic” now which of course is beyond the budget of our masses. We need to fill bellies, but we are not nourishing our bodies, therefore, we are sick and getting sicker and fatter and tho our life expectancy has increased a bit, . . . . to what end?
Both my parents were incapacitated with arthritis and wheelchair bound. Both had dementia. I am very aware of the meaning of the statistics on these diseases. So this is the background on who I am, what motivates me and what is generally focused on here. This is why I post so much on all the new paths which open up on Alzheimer’s disease. Please understand that I am not speaking of pharmaceuticals but always organic, plant-based food or herbs which can be utilized by the body to nourish and assist the body to heal itself.
My health by many standards is quite good. I live alone, have no help, take care of my life rather efficiently and graciously. All the body parts still work and I do a little gardening – I still love my roses and house plants (kind of like a jungle in here) – – but hey, it pleases me. I have a stationery bike, a Pilates machine and of course my favorite – the mini trampoline (which I keep up here – the rest is in the basement)
I am as organic as I can be, because I juice daily. I enjoy salmon, sardines and albacore, chicken occasionally and sometimes a little beef when I can get grass-fed, free-range. I buy a lot of fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds.
I have tried to share formula or recipes for stuff it’s hard to get elsewhere, like tooth powder, post – “The risk of Tooth Whitening,” using colloidal silver for genital herpes, shown how I make “Fermented Foods,” how to cope with the leaky bladder issue based on a technique being used at a hospital. They wouldn’t give up their proprietary tape I was seeking, so I devised a method using EFT which is remarkably effective.
I am a big believer in using energy medicine (Eden Energy Medicine, EFT from Gary Craig, Quantum Touch) – there are many approaches which are effective. All it takes is opening the mind to accepting that it can be done. I have made a strong effort to counteract the need for meds thru diet. But like everyone else there are times when pain or stuff gets to me and I use EFT primarily. Meds as well as over-the-counter stuff, will negatively impact the kidney and liver. I don’t want to do that, unless I’m desperate.
So, here’s to “health,” yours and mine.
