Swine flu...

Now, I'm not one to jump on the fear mongering band wagon. I worked in TV news for three years, and let me tell ya, if it's not swine flu, there are a million other things you should be worried about...if you really wanna worry about something! Most "flu's" passed, and no global pandemic's occured. However, with the current delicate state of our economy, I am a bit more concerned now. When I read reports that a swine flu pandemic would cause food shortages, and our economy to crash more quickly (is that even possible? lol), I was worried. I mean, it seems like the perfect set-up, doesn't it? The perfect excuse to bring our economy down to no return. Then I found an article that it is not even really swine flu but a mixture of avian, human AND swine flu. Hmmm, unless a bird-pig-human mutant got some crazy case of the flu, I'm guessing this was created in a lab? I also read that the Spanish flu, which seems similiar, killed the people who had a healthy immune system (Look at Roosevelt...he had tons of health issues, and he survived!Just one example, for you!) Soo, so much for protecting yourself against it by eating healthy! Ok, fear mongering aside, I wanted to share some more positive information (although call me negative but if there WAS a pandemic, I think I'd rather die then survive and live in the economic and emotional aftermath..but thank God there are people who are survivors-I'm more of a FIGHTER...not a survivor. I am a protector if that makes any sense...but once the fight is over, my job is done!) First of all, if you are concerned or get the flu, go to a HOMEOPATHIC doctor. NOT A REGULAR DOCTOR. I repeat, FIND A GOOD HOMEOPATHIC doctor. You should do this anyways-swine flu mutant thing or not. Homeopathic doctors had a 1% death rate during the Spanish flu. And besides, Doctors always make me more sick (unless I was in a car accident or something-then I would go to the Emergency Room Doctor! lol) I also have MMS miracle cure in my house. When I tried it out, and was done with it, my mom asked if we should throw it out, and I said no because it is a really unique product. I think it's good though to have something like that just in case. My experience and review of MMS is it made me feel better, BUT I wasn't sick at the time, so I couldn't justify the potential damage it could also cause in the long term if I took it on a regular basis. I think MMS should only be taken in extreme cases-it kills off all the bad stuff, and while people claim that it doesn't kill anything good also...I'm not buying it yet-plus I don't know enough about science to make an educated opinion on the counterpoints to the founder of MMS's scientific backing of it. If I had the swine flu and everyone around me was dying...I'd say a little bit of MMS miracle would be worth it. In other words, I don't think the damage of the MMS miracle cure is as bad as the damage of some deadly strain of the swine flu. I think MMS miracle cure is ok in small doses, and if you have an extreme situation. Plus, having it makes me feel better, and we all know having a positive attitude is one of the best natural remedies out there! If you are in Michigan you can get MMS miracle cure at Zerbos in Livonia. If you aren't, you can order it online. Oh yeah, and eating pork doesn't supposedly cause swine flu, just in case any of you raw foodists/vegans were wondering :)

If you are taking antibiotics read this!

Ok, so I'm sure antibiotics are good in SOME situations. Or maybe you are like me and you don't trust yourself to come up with a good plan if you don't do what your doctor prescribes you..but that being said, I think the next time I have to have antibiotics I'm going to eithe NOT take them, or be very careful. What I have found is that when I get off antibiotics I have a WORSE infection! It clears up the infection I had originally, but than I get another one. I found out recently that when you take antibiotics you need more probiotics. That makes sense! ANTI-biotics KILL the bad AND good PRObiotics, so make sure you add in more of the good PRObiotics if you are on any antibiotics! That way you will kill the bad infection, and keep your probiotics supply at a healthy level so you don't get any NEW infections. Gosh I wish my doctors would have told me this! But then, how could they prescribe me and make money off of the NEW infection I got?!

Grrr.

Who manifested the Economy?

I'm so sick of hearing how bad the economy is! I can only say this though because I learned from personal experience how futile it is to think the economy is bad. Back in 2001, after the tragedy on September 11th, I was very negative. I think I was harder hit than a lot of people in Michigan because I knew a lot of people in NYC, and also had a very, VERY close friend directly impacted. Not that it wasn't a horrible situation for other people in Michigan, or that I was the only one who knew somebody, but I knew multiple people and also one very important person in my life. I also worked in an industry (TV Production) that at the time, had limited jobs to begin with. I predicted this negative economy long before any of my friends took it seriously. I couldn't understand why nobody else noticed the economy was going to fall apart, and that they weren't panicked about it! BUT I did start to notice something else...there were some of my friends who were doing really, really WELL. Despite how bad things were becoming for everybody, they still did good financially. In fact, they were doing GREAT. It was as if they lived in a separate country! At first, this annoyed me, but then I started to feel silly. I realized that the economy was only bad in MY MIND. I know, I know, the economy still IS bad. What I found was far more worse though, was MY ATTITUDE. That was what was holding me back-not the economy itself! I couldn't see the NEW opportunities, and passed them up because of my defeatist attitude. I was reminded of this today by a quick email and report I received in my email, and I wanted to share it with you. The only thing about it that I don't understand is it said you need specific knowledge to prosper in bad economic times-but this report didn't say WHAT that knowledge was ;) But you can be sure I will be studying the people they mentioned who prospered during the Great Depression-and looking for more people like them! I hope this report inspires you like it did me:

Life is Short..

...enjoy it while you can. I just found out a good friend of mine passed away a few days ago. While she moved away to Georgia a few years ago, we kept in contact on facebook and myspace.


So, call a friend, or family member you haven't spoken to in awhile.

Tell someone you appreciate them!


R.I.P. Kira


You were a great friend, and always had such a happy, positive spirit.

You will be missed! :(
