Intoxication!

"Those who have been once intoxicated with power and have derived any kind of emolument from it can never willingly abandon it." -- Edmund Burke

"But bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."


"Free government is founded in jealousy, not confidence.  It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind those we are obliged to trust with power.... In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in men, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." -- Thomas Jeffferson

Things That Interfere and Things That Overcome in Homebirth

I have seen girls turn into women before my eyes! It is a privilege to be invited into the most important event in a young woman's life. But most of all, I am happy to save a baby from being tortured by hospital protocols.

These are the things that may interfere with birth, especially a first birth:
  • Being rigid, in mind or body.
  • Feeling on the clock.
  • Feeling watched.
  • Not resting and sleeping through early labor.
  • Emotional problems with people at the birth.
  • Emotional baggage.
  • Fear, which is unbelief.
  • Malnutrition (the American Diet).
God gives you nine months to prepare for birth. Read everything you can and as many different perspectives as you can find. When it is all over, take responsibility for your decisions.  The most grown up thing you can do is be honest, at least with yourself.

These things may help overcome obstacles:

Prenatally
  • Eat the most micro-nutrient dense foods you can find!
  • Pray everyday and read something inspiring everyday.
  • Ask God to reveal your sins to you so you can repent and forgive.
  • Hire a supportive birth team.
  • Keep your first birth private.
  • Learn to relax.
  • Practice a variety of positions well before labor.
  • Squat, or sit on a birth ball, instead of slouching in a chair.
  • Pray for revelation about the things you don't know that you don't know.
Once Labor Begins:
  • Relax and rest between contractions.
  • Rest and sleep through early labor.
  • Use rhythm to get through this contraction.
  • Breathe deeply and slowly.
  • Be vocal, it really helps.
  • Design a peaceful birth place.
  • Do not have spectators. If someone is not helping, they should leave the premises.
I found Ronnie Facoa's policy very helpful, too: http://www.gentlebirth.org/ronnie/firstbaby.html

You Were Created with a Perfect Plan


Give Honor to the One That Created You

You were created from the DNA in a sperm and an egg. In His infinite wisdom and love of diversity, God made it possible for you to be unique by combining different genes from your mother and your father. God designed your DNA to be nourished with micronutrients. It is easy to accomplish even with a poor diet when you are the size of a pea. As you grow you require more micronutrients. Most pregnancy related complications can be avoided with a micronutrient dense diet.


Health Stewardship is the Way

Now that you are a full size adult, nothing has changed except the increased need for micronutrients. And of course to avoid as many man-made poisons as possible. Our amazing creator made plants to change the energy in the sun and the minerals and nutrients in soil into life promoting food.
There will never be proof to satisfy the naysayers, only many, many, accounts where disease is reversed.


Read books on Whole Food Plant Based Nutrition to keep or regain your health. Avoid man-made and processed foods that cause disease. Avoid salt, oils and sugar, which bog down the system of health that God created. Study to maintain your freedom from fear and manipulation from the medical establishment that profits off your obeisance.

God bless you, richly as He has promised!

Pure Water

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program


Water makes up 70 percent of your body by weight. Water is the most important nutrient, next to air. It is the medium in which the nutrients and the waste products of your cells are dissolved. Water is necessary for any life processes to take place in the body.

When you remove the water from a piece of fruit the enzyme activity of that fruit is slowed. This is one way we preserve food. Similarly, the cleaning experts tell you that if you want to increase the cleaning power of your laundry detergent increase the water content. The dirt must be able to be dissolved in the water to clean the clothes. Really the detergent is just making the water "wetter."

Many people have found that just by increasing the amount of pure water they drink every day they feel better and lose weight, too.

The process that God designed for purification of water is two-fold. First the water cycle whereby water evaporates from the ocean and is moved and cooled by the wind, then dropped to the earth as rain is a distillation process. Second the rain travels through soil and rocky ground filtering it. Therefore the processes for purifying your water should be one or both of these.

If you buy distilled water make sure it does not taste or smell like plastic. Plastic milk containers are better than other plastics. And glass and stainless steel containers are best.

Natural Food

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program

""The term "natural" is used today in advertising so loosely that I don't think anyone knows what it means. "Natural!" is emblazoned on every other package. But when you read the label there is a mile long list of artificial ingredients. This tells me that for the advertisers "natural" means that at one time this was from nature.

When God created food for the first time, He knew exactly what we needed to live full and happy lives. He packaged it in fruits and vegetables. He created the awesome process of photosynthesis so that plants could take the sun's life giving energy and transform it into food for us. Amazing! He had us lovingly in mind then and now. So why is it that we have so many food choices that say "natural" but aren't?

The love of money is the root of all evil! The reason for the artificial items on the packaging list is MONEY! The longer the shelf life and the brighter the colors the more money the food producers make. Why does the FDA allow chemicals in our food that other countries have banned? That is a good question and the answer is still that the love of money is the root of all evil.

Don't expect other people to do your thinking for you. Do your homework and begin studying how to live life as God intended. Everything you need for health, He has provided in unprocessed food.

Fresh Air & Oxygen

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program

Most of us take the air we breathe for granted. We don't even think about it unless it smells bad or causes us immediate distress. It is also difficult to control.

One time I was moved into a new building with new cubicles and new carpet. I was immediately aware of the odors in the air, which means airborne chemicals were entering my lungs and poisoning me. I felt ill pretty quickly so I bought a negative ion producing air cleaner and left it running in the office 24 hours a day for a month. I think I purified the whole building because the odor went away everywhere.

Some people are more aware than others of the effects of noxious chemicals in the air. But understand that even if they do not make you ill immediately, they are causing problems in your body that your body may eventually be unable to compensate for.

Cancer is in essence caused by lack of oxygen in the affected tissue so this illness as well as all other pollution in the tissues will benefit from an air purifier/ozone generator. But exercise will multiply the effects.
