Thinking Today...About Health

I will give you my disclaimer right here. I am not being paid nor do I work for the company that sells the product I am going to tell you about. But first a little history.

I have mentioned many times I grew up on a farm, first with my grandparents and then my Dad had a ranch called JBJ Cattle Ranch and we raised registered livestock. Sheep, cattle and hogs. We spent our time at fairs selling and showing animals. They were our livelihood as well as an investment. One of the things I found interesting was you could cure pretty much any illness they might have by giving them minerals and vitamins.

In the early nineties, my Dad was experiencing health issues. High blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol.
I was at the time, learning about herbs and heath and learning how treat my young family and live a healthier lifestyle. I first heard a man on the radio who had a bunch of tapes at the time called," Dead Doctors Don't Lie." He made all of these health claims that lack of minerals would cause a myriad of health issues. Why taking cholesterol and high blood pressure medicine was bad for you and just a mineral deficiency. I talked till I was blue in the face to my Dad, but he did like everyone else does, he listened to his doctors. Right before his death, he called on the phone and told me  he had spent the day with a room full of lawyers taking his deposition. The Statins he was taking at the time, caused his liver, his pancreas and his kidneys to die. 
He said, " My only hope is that maybe the truth will come out and other people won't have to die."  My Dad was 67 years old.

  I moved on with life and have tried to keep up on what is going on in health and have tried to stay as much as I can away from doctors. I was starting to see things though start to break down and aches and pains that I put down to aging. Then I got sick and seemed all of my things that would make me better were not working. One day, too sick to read or sew, I turned on the radio, something I don't do. There on the radio was that guy again. Talking about minerals. He was at one time the top vet in the United States for the zoos. He has done more autopsies on animals and has so many peer review papers. What he found that mineral deficiencies cause the illnesses we have come to just accept. I told Ron who is my Skeptic meter. He said, " Okay lets get the book." Then he said, " Okay lets get the product." So for five weeks we have been taking the minerals.
I had had a headache on the night the minerals came,  it had lasted for a week. Within 20 minutes of the first dose, my headache was gone. My carpel tunnel is gone and my hands are no longer blue. Now my cough didn't go away as fast. My lungs after taking the minerals would feel like heat was inside of them and then my cough just disappeared.

My daughter who is having morning sickness wrote about her experience here. The stuff is expensive. We have just been buying it off of Amazon. The reviews are worth reading. My son Elliot, was sitting one day and remarked, " I know what I like about taking this, after I take it I just feel happy." That is all I can say too, just a feeling of well being like your body says, " Oh thank you for taking care of me. " My cravings are gone and without dieting or anything Ron and I have both dropped 8 pounds. I did for one day decide to not take it and see what happened because I knew I was going to be writing about it and I still am at the stage, of can this really be? My hands ached from hooking and Ron noticed my hands were blue again.

I have thought and thought about this, I didn't want this to be a infomercial. I have always wondered why when you raise animals you feed them every thing you can do to keep them healthy. For us though, when you go to the doctor you are just treating symptoms. Dr. Joel Wallach in his book said that if you go to the doctor with a symptom and he tells you that you have a mineral deficiency go take this supplement, it might cost you 70 dollars but if he tells you that you have Type ll Diabetes, you will end up spending 700,000 dollars in your lifetime.

  I don't mean this to sound like I am bashing doctors, I am not. I am thankful we have medical care and antibiotics and things like that.  I just think you will stay healthier in the long run if you take control of your health and give it the best nutrients you can to operate at optimum health. 

Okay getting off my soap box now. I have been thinking and thinking about this and about whether to write about it or not. I do think that if my Dad had taken this and not the doctors advice, he would still be alive today. I do not want to die the same way. When a simple mineral can fix what ails me. 

This could all just be a bunch of piffle and it is just my imagination, but feeling better is really nice.

Thanks for reading, I know it is rather wordy.

" Our bodies need no less than 90 essential nutrients, and there are as many as 10 deficiency diseases that can result for each nutrient that is missing for any length of time. This is a total of up to 900 diseases that can be PREVENTED with proper nutrition." - Dr. Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND, Founder of Youngevity

I'm glad you posted this! I'm still in the research phase, trying to figure out what's ip with my body. I do feel so much better, overall, taking it.

Christine said...

This is really really interesting as I've been thinking along similar lines of late. As you say, sometimes we put up with aches and pains etc and say it must be age catching up with us, but taking care of our bodies makes much more sense!
Glad you are feeling better!

Julia said...

Wow, you delivered a strong endorsement for a health product. I'm so glad it's working for you and your family and that you're feeling much better. I've been taking a handful of supplements ever morning and never tallied how much it all cost. I take them individually because when I take a multi vitamin supplement, I get a reaction with hives because they have nickel in it.

I take probiotic also and stay away from prepackaged food that contain soy or soy-by-products. My health has improved a lot to the point that my diabetes was not showing in my blood test and all the 8 blood test were smack in the good reading.

I occasionally eat junk food as long as they don't contain too much chemical or soy.

I'll wait for the long term report to see how you are all doing with no cold or flu or headaches or other nasty malaise then I'll give it a try maybe. $70. is that for a month supply for one person?

Thanks for sharing your good news Kim.

The river is almost to the road edge and it's raining so we are on a flood watch.

I'm so glad you found something that's helpful to you! What a blessing it is to feel good, after you haven't for so long. I'm becoming more and more a believer in some of these things, the more I hear about them.

i'm glad you are seeing good results from taking this. seems lots of hype and some controversy on it just from some searches on the web. :) if it works and you can afford it, i say, good going!

Great timing, what an awesome post, I may look into this as I was just told last week I needed high blood pressure meds. I told them I don't like taking chemicals and the dr. got upset with me.

Thanks for posting.

Debbie said...

Oh can't tell you how interesting I found this post. I am always looking for a natural way to feel better. I take MANY different vitamins and supplements, and digestive aids as well. I do take one blood pressure med but that's it. They wanted to add many more but I have kept it under control other ways. Do I have to buy this book to here what it is you are taking or did I miss something somewhere (entirely possible, lol) Anyway, soooo glad you are feeling better. To tell you the truth after my long trip there is not much of anything on me that doesn't hurt. Growing older is no picnic. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Gail said...

I'm glad you are seeing results.

Granny was a midwife and believed in keeping the body in balance. She knew what to eat to heal you but sadly she wrote nothing down and except for a few things, we don't know.

Keep healing.

It looks interesting over on Amazon! Do you have to take the powder or can you just take a capsule? said...

Hi Kim:
This is definitely interesting. I know there are so many things out there that claim wonders, but I am all for the natural and safe way. I am going to be watching, to hear what you think in a few weeks or months. Thank you for sharing, it does make a lot of sense. I think things other than prescribed meds are really at the forefront of health, so this sure caught my eye. said...

Thanks for sharing and yes, I have heard about this book in the past. I am a no meds girl. Hubby just turned 61 and he is on meds and I have been trying to get him to go more natural. But then again...I had babies at home! LOL I am going to do more research on this and let us know how it goes. Thanks!!

Kim said...

Wow, this is interesting. Thanks for sharing. I grow more skeptical of big pharma products every day. When you hear the warning of the possible side effects......seems like a drug helps one symptom but causes 10 new problems

Kerin said...

So happy for you that you have found just what your bodies need to stay healthy!!!
Environmental factors, genetics, and life choices are all things that affect our health.
Making good choices, and being good stewards over our health is very wise.

Have a great weekend!!
