What’s in a Flu Shot?

The flu shot is highly recommended by most medical professionals, even though it is not guaranteed that you won’t get the flu.

I’m personally not a fan of the flu shot.  I feel that it can cause more harm in the long run then good in the short term.  The flu shot has large amounts of toxins, suck as Ethyline glycol (anti-freeze…yes, anti-freeze), Thimerosal (can result in brain injury and autoimmune disease), Aluminum (associated with Alzheimer’s and cancer) and Formaldehyde (known to cause cancer).

Now you tell me, why would you want to inject your body with those toxins.

Extracts From Purple Berries Promote Weight Loss

Scientists have published new evidence that natural pigments of blue/purple/reddish found in certain fruits and vegetables may help prevent obesity and improve other health markers. However, they found that eating the extract of blueberry was more effective at promoting weight loss than eating the whole fruit.

In the new study, researchers found that mice fed a high-fat diet for 8 weeks plus drinking water with purified anthecyanins from blueberries and strawberries gained less weight and had lower body fat levels than a control group. “Anthocyanins fed as the whole blueberry did not prevent and may have actually increased obesity,” the study reported. “However, feeding purified anthocyanins from blueberries or strawberries reduced obesity.”

What does this mean to some interested in losing weight? The study gives evidence to the health and weight-loss benefits of taking fruit extracts from blueberries, grapes, etc. Zambroza is brimming with extracts from colourful fruits such as blueberries. People who take Zambroza report weight loss as one of its many benefits.

Fair Trade

My Thoughts on Fair Trade Whether we realize it or not, more of us then not are contributing to non fair trade. From our cups of coffee to our computer monitors, we are promoting something most of us would be against if we truly knew the facts. I was one of them.

The movie Bordertown brought this issue to my attention. Although “just a movie”, I truly felt the message behind it and my heart sunk. I’ve been living oblivious to where everything I buy comes from, never mind half the crap I truly don’t even need. To learn what fellow humans go through to get these products to me, just tore my heart.

Fair Trade is all I want in my life from now on…….but where do I start? I don’t know which products are and are not. So through The Healthy Truth, I decided to learn and post all information that I come across on companies using fair trade practices.

My New Hero

I’m lovin’ the new Silver Shield Liquid.

I started my day with a soar throat, oh what fun that was.  Instead of going my usual root, I decided to test out the new Silver Shield formula to see if it’s all they say it is.

Boy was it ever!  The symptoms went away within 2 days of using Silver Shield.  I took it 3 times a day with a meal and now it’s all gone.

My new test product, Silver Shield Gel on my daughters Eczema.  Of course, I’ll be adding the Acidophilus and Oregon Grape to the mix.  Her bowels are currently working great, so no need to worry about proper elimination.
