EMF protection

We are bombarded with artificial energy waves from technology and electricity!!!!  This is NOT natural and it interferes with the body’s function.  It’s like static on a radio station – or noise at a party so you can’t hear the person beside you.  Here are some resources for information and protection: - great products for your computer and cell phone
A great little book to read is Health Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation by Bruce Fife.


save $ at our grocery store

Have you shopped at Green PolkaDot Box yet?  TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY TO ORDER FROZEN FOODS FOR OUR AREA!!  This summer we can’t get frozen foods in TX from GPDB.  This is our grocery store – the one we offer to you and the one we shop at ourselves.  The prices are less than anything we’ve found locally.  Plus – it’s so convenient not to have to DRIVE to the store!!  I just put things in my shopping cart when I otherwise would have put them on my shopping list.  Then the cart is ready whenever I choose to check out.  Try it today – I’m sure you’ll be glad you did!  I stocked up on salmon and frozen fruits today.

DId you know……at birth our ratio of magnesium to calcium is 95% mag 5% cal.  By age 70 it is 5% mag 95% cal.  That can cause WRINKLES!!!!, calcified arteries, and when there’s not enough magnesium it can’t carry the calcium IN to the bones and teeth.  Just supplementing with calcium is not appropriate.

I thought I’d share the following article that was in a newsletter I got this month: Medications That Cause Mitochondrial Dysfunction Mitochondrial dysfunction is to blame for many toxicities caused by drugs and may explain the side effects of many medications. Even so, the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t require mitochondrial toxicity testing for new drug approval. Drugs can damage mitochondria in two ways: directly or indirectly. Medications can directly inhibit mtDNA transcription of electron transport chain complexes. Through other mechanisms, medications damage electron transport chain components, as well as block enzymes required for mitochondrial function. Indirect mitochondrial damage caused by medications occurs through the production of free radicals, causing a decrease in endogenous antioxidants such as glutathione. Medications may also deplete levels of nutrients needed for creating or proper functioning of mitochondrial enzymes or electron transport chain complexes.

7 years ago today I got 7 amalgam fillings removed SAFELY!!  Amalgams are the grey-colored metal fillings and they contain mercury which constantly releases toxic vapor.  Yes, constantly.  Yes, even when it’s in your mouth.  Those things were in my mouth 30+ years, causing cellular inflammation and dysfunction.  My health has been constantly improving ever since I got those fillings removed!  That fall I had no allergy symptoms – for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!! – because my immune system was functioning better!  I did the correct heavy metals test after that and discovered I was high in lead and mercury and also my aluminum was off the chart.  My grandmother had Alzheimers, and aluminum is proven to contribute to that, so I was headed that direction.  Removing those toxins SAVED MY LIFE!!  Because what my grandmother experienced with Alzheimers was not LIFE.  PLUS, that experience changed the course of my life in another way – I went back to school to learn to be a health coach and cellular healing specialist.  Now I can help save other peoples’ lives, too, which is such an honor and privilege!  I am SO grateful to Pride Dental in Arlington, TX for removing my fillings SAFELY!  Getting mercury fillings removed incorrectly is VERY dangerous.  Very few dentists really do it safely.  Watch the smoking tooth video to learn more about mercury in amalgam fillings.


healthy chocolate

A man found a bottle on the ocean, and he opened it and out popped a genie, and she gave him three wishes. The man wished for a million dollars, and poof! there was a million dollars. Then he wished for a convertible, and poof! there was a convertible. And then, he wished he could be irresistible to all women… poof! he turned into a box of chocolates. “The good microbes, such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, feast on chocolate,” one researcher said. “When you eat dark chocolate, they grow and ferment it, producing compounds that are anti-inflammatory.”  The BEST chocolate we know of at Health for a Purpose is here:   It is cold processed, has no added fats, is sweetened with acai (mentioned in this article) and blueberry and a little cane sugar.  VERY high ORAC score.  AND……when you share the chocolate with 3 friends, you can get yours FREE every month:):)

Nutritionally, avocados pack a powerful punch. They are a very good source of many nutrients including vitamins C and K, as well as potassium (more than a banana) and fiber (both soluble and insoluble). They also have the highest protein content of any fruit.



more fast-food ideas:  ”pan fried” chicken:  thaw some chicken breasts (you can do that really quickly when they are frozen in thin pieces)……heat your cast iron skillet on medium a few minutes…..put the chicken right on the pan – it will probably sizzle and pop…..sprinkle some season salt on it…..after a couple of minutes, turn the chicken….reduce the heat, cover the pan, cook till done.  SUPER FAST!!!  Serve it with some steamed frozen veggies.



Need a fast family meal idea? SALMON salad! Be sure to get cold-water wild-caught salmon. Frozen is fine. You can often find it frozen in individual packages (even if it’s a 1-lb pkg, it will be 2-3 individually-wrapped pieces) which thaw VERY VERY QUCKLY! THAT’S FAST-FOOD! Heat your cast iron skillet or griddle in the oven broiler appx 7 minutes. Take the pan out, put the fish on (skin-side down), sprinkle with some herbs (for added antioxidant power), put it back in the broiler appx 7 minutes, remove from oven, add a little butter on top (butter is brain food). When you serve it, you can just leave the skin stuck the to the pan, then feed it to the pets later:) Serve it on a bed of greens with some seeds (we love soaked/sprouted sunflower and pumpkin seeds), grated raw cheese, EVOO (we like to use citrus-infused oils) and infused balasamic vinegar. Sometimes we sprinkle dried cherries or dried cranberries on top. YUM! THAT is fast food in our house!


Ginger tea

News you can use, from Health for a Purpose:  
        Try making some ginger tea today.  It boosts your immune system and tastes like Christmas:)  Steep a large slice of ginger in a cup of warm water with a cinnamon stick.  Steep till it’s as strong as you want it.  You can re-use the ginger and cinnamon as long as they are flavorful – the flavor does not deteriorate with repeated use.  
         The common spice ginger possesses some very potent and not to be overlooked health benefits. Ginger is a powerful anti-cancer botanical showing particular aid in colon, ovarian and prostate cancers. Some studies have shown that ginger could help tumor formation for those exposed to cancer-causing chemicals. Ginger has long been used as a powerful natural remedy for colds and the flu as it can help promote healthy sweating, which is often beneficial during these illnesses. Researchers have recently found that sweat contains a potent germ-fighting agent that may help ward off infections.Many people also find ginger to be helpful in the case of stomach flus or food poisoning, which is not surprising given the positive effects ginger has upon the digestive tract as well as its antimicrobial properties.
