Afraid to Walk Your Dog at Night? Buy the Funky Lite Leash

September 29, 2010 Leave a comment

If you are a dog lover then this is the product for you. This is a leash that my friend invented for people who have to walk their dogs at night. Everyone knows that taking the pooch out for a night-time stroll can be very dangerous. Drivers can be speeding around turns without even seeing you and reflectors only work so well. This leash has a highly visible electroluminescent wire that runs through the entire length, about 5 ft. It is very durable, and weather resistant. It is made for dogs 100 lbs. and under and only requires two double-A batteries.

The man who invented this did it for the sole purpose of keeping people and their dogs safe during their night-time walks.

You can purchase your leash  here, or you can email me directly at sdacorta@yahoo.com

Swine Flu Vaccine Update

October 6, 2009 2 comments

More and more doctors and experts are coming out in protest of the Swine Flu or H1N1 Flu vaccine. Dr. Joseph Mercola, who has been a strong opposer of the vaccine since it was created, has been stressing everyday on his website, mercola.com, the dangers and probable consequences of the vaccine.

The swine flu vaccine, a scam?

September 7, 2009 1 comment

With the creation of the Swine Flu Vaccine in July many people have started debating on whether they should go and get the vaccine or take a pass on it. It sounds like a good deal, get injected with the vaccine and your safe from getting swine flu. But with the drastic side effects of the vaccine that was created in 1976 for the same virus, which was paralysis, many people are hesitant to go and receive the vaccine. For people who are on the “yes, I’ll take it” side of the fence, I should let you know that the vaccine was not even tested on humans, so if you want to be a guinea pig go right ahead and get the shot. Also know that doctors still do not know what caused the paralysis in the last vaccine, so how would they know what the side effects for this vaccine will be? It could be the same, it could be worse.

Before you go to the doctor’s and spend $25 on a vaccine, try to prevent swine flu naturally. Anybody who has read my article on the sun knows that I am a strong proponent of it and that it can prevent many diseases because of the increase in Vitamin D that it provides for your body. The Swine Flu is no different, studies show that a person who has more Vitamin D in their body has a better chance of preventing influenza, so just another reason to spend more time in the sun. Another way of preventing the swine flu is to take a good source of omega- 3 fats like fish or krill oil, and avoid damaged omega- 6 oils like trans fat because this slows down the immune system.

Also know that the vaccine is suspected of causing autism or other neurological disorders to a person due to the adjuvants, anything that aids in removing or preventing a disease, added to the vaccine. There is NO evidence that proves that regular, seasonal, flu vaccines help prevent the virus, so why should this one be any different? It is believed that the seasonal flu vaccine may help 1% of those people who receive it prevent influenza. In fact, this vaccine may even increase your chances of death from swine flu because it suppresses the immune system.

According to Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a German lung specialist who is also the chairman of the health committee in the German Parliament and the European Council, the vaccine contains animal cancer cells which could cause an allergic reaction when injected.

Dr. Russell Blaylock says that the vaccine may be more dangerous than the virus itself. One reason is because the vaccine uses cultured cells from the African green monkey which has been linked to transmitting many vaccine contaminating viruses, the most notable being HIV. He also found that the vaccine contains squalene which has been linked to autoimmune diseases.

Dr. Joseph Mercola says that the swine flu vaccines contain a dangerous level of mercury in the form of thimerosal which he says that, if taken in igh enough doses could Autism, ADD, and Multiple Sclerosis. He also states that it could cause neurological problems for adults such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

The government has already freed the drug companies of any responsibility for the vaccine. So the companies who are creating the vaccine have zero liability and will not be at fault if anyone dies from it. It doesn’t seem like the government and the drug companies are too confident about this, and that doesn’t make me to confident about the shot either, I know I won’t be rushing to my doctor’s office.

Bottom line, do you really want to a vaccine injected into your body that;

-was not tested on humans

-may cause autism or other neurological disorders

-contains animal cancer cells

-is not even proven to prevent anything

-can be substituted with sun exposure

The choice is yours, I hope by reading this that you make the right decision.

The Truth about Vitamin D and the Almighty Sun

September 5, 2009 Leave a comment


For years the people of the United States have been lied to and mislead about the sun. Putting on our spf 50 before entering the harmful rays of the disastrous sun has become second nature to millions of people. It makes me wonder how people could ever think that the sun, the center of the universe, has no benefits and is so detrimental that spending five minutes in it will instantly give you skin cancer. How could the sun, which is imperative for the life of humans, plants, trees, and all other living organisms on this planet, be so harmful? In this article you will learn about how healthy the sun really is for you and how it can even prevent many chronic diseases and cancers.

**The following information has been taken from many sources, mainly from nutritionist Krispin Sullivan and Dr. Joseph Mercola.**

With exposure from the UV rays from the sun, Vitamin D synthesis in the skin of the human body is triggered. It has been proven that the sun is the best source of the very essential Vitamin D for for your body. What is so important about vitamin D? The major function of Vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. This helps form and maintain strong bones in the body. A depletion of this vitamin in the body can result in soft, brittle bones and other diseases and cancers that will be mentioned later. The sunscreen that everybody rubs into their skin does not allow the penetration of UV rays into the skin, unless it is spf 7 or less. This obviously does not allow the synthesis of Vitamin D in the skin which results in harmful diseases.
I am
not saying that going into the sun for hours and getting maximum sun exposure is healthy because it is not. The sun’s rays can be harmful if taken in too much. You will know when you have taken in too much of the sun’s rays when you get burned so bad that your skin is pealing. According to experts, a person should go in the sun in the beginning of the spring, or once the sun starts to get strong enough, for ten to fifteen minutes to get a base tan. This is important because eventually you will get tanner and tanner and it will be very hard for you to get burned during the summer. While too much sun could result in skin cancer too little sun could also harm the body. A deficiency of Vitamin D in the body has been linked to twenty- five different chronic diseases including; breast, prostate, colon, and skin cancer and other chronic diseases such as osteoporosis and schizophrenia. It has also been associated with insulin deficiency which could result in diabetes and Heart disease, the deadliest disease in America. FACT: More heart attacks occur during the winter months. It has also been said that Vitamin D can reduce the amount of mercury in your body which is very important to your well being.

This is from Yahoo news and National Academy of sciences- Jan. 2007: —– Moderate sun exposure offers more health benefits than risks, particularly for people who are deficient in vitamin D.

The article also says that it has been proven that people who live in northern latitudes and are not able to get sun exposure are more likely to develop skin cancer than people who live in sunnier, southern latitudes.

With this new information I think that you should go out and enjoy the sun, just not too much. If sunscreen is desperately needed try to get some that is less than spf 8 so that some of the sun’s rays will be able to penetrate the skin and release the Vitamin D.

The British Medical Journal said that sunscreen does not protect against UVA rays, which are the cancer causing rays, so people should not rely on sunscreen for complete protection against cancer. Some doctors say that sunscreen has certain toxins in it that, when rubbed into the skin, could also potentially cause cancer. These carcinogenic chemicals are used in the sunscreen as artificial fragrance and color.  These chemicals can cause major damage to the liver and heart. It also contains petroleum products that are used as stabilizers and fillers.  For more information go to http://www.mercola.com or read “Sunlight Robbery” or just search ‘Benefits of the sun’ in any search engine.

Also know that taking in sun from behind glass is will do the opposite of what the sun will usually do. This is because the glass filters out the healthy UVB rays and leaves only the UVA to penetrate the skin which may even take away from the Vitamin D in your body.

The Miracle Oil

September 4, 2009 Leave a comment

Coconut on a Beach If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Coconut Oil I highly suggest you go out and buy it the next time your shopping. My family and I found it about a year ago and were amazed when we learned all of the great benefits it has for your body. We now use it for just about everything. It can be used as a substitute for olive or the very harmful canola oil, it can be used as moisturizer, it can be applied to your hair, it can do everything…it’s the Miracle Oil.

Coconut oil is the healthiest oil you can get, just make sure that you buy the organic extra- virgin coconut oil for healthiest results. It’s great health benefits are due to the fact that it is rich in lauric acid, which is known for being antibacterial and containing absolutely no trans fat. By using Coconut oil on a daily basis you will soon see a difference in your skin, hair, and complexion, all for the better. But this oil also benefits you in ways that you cannot see. It has been proven that the ingestion and use of coconut oil results in low stress, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, weight loss, and increased immunity. It also helps prevent kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, and even cancer.

If you are an athlete or dieting you should definitely check this oil out because it has very little fat content, and the fat that it does contain can easily be turned into energy. Many athletes and bodybuilders prefer to use coconut oil opposed to other oils for this reason.

If you have damaged hair or dandruff coconut oil is highly recommended because it provides the essential proteins needed for the re-growth of the scalp and damaged hair. You could also use it as a conditioner and you will soon notice that your hair will be shinier, healthier, and stronger than before. To do this apply the coconut oil to your hair and scalp and gently massage your it, especially the scalp. This process will also help in lowering stress.

If you are a person who has dry skin, eczema, or bad acne, coconut oil will do wonders for you. Washing your face with coconut oil everyday will help clean your pours resulting in decrease of acne and if your a person who suffers from eczema it will help keep control of breakouts. It also slows time….kind of, by applying it to your face it will delay any wrinkles and sagging skin from your face that usually come with age. My cousin has eczema and during the past summer he was having a lot of difficulty with his skin because he was swimming in a chlorinated pool everyday, chlorine can be very damaging to the skin. Instead of rubbing chemicals into his body we told him to try some coconut oil, within days he saw a difference.

If you are dieting this is the oil for you because it increases the bodies metabolism which helps you burn energy which results in the loss of weight.

Do you have a baby or young child? Coconut oil will help the healing process on those nasty bruises that are all over your kid’s legs and it also helps heal diaper rash.If you haven’t been convinced about all the great benefits of coconut oil by reading this, and there are a lot more, or you have a hard time believing a kid like me, click here where you can read the scientific reasoning to all of these statistics that I am relaying to you.
