A REAL CURE for Cancer

I just finished watching a documentary called

Burzynski - Cancer is Serious Business

Dr. Burzynski is a doctor who has discovered a CURE for cancer. yes, you read that right. A cure for cancer.

Let that sink in for a second.

Why is this not on ABC nightly news or the top headline on MSNBC????

Trace the dollars and I think we all know why. Cancer treatment is a multi-billion dollar industry.

I HIGHLY recommend you take an evening to watch this documentary - especially if you know someone who is battling cancer.

The testimonies of his patients speak for the effectiveness of his treatments - which by the way are NOT TOXIC. They are antineoplastons that are naturally occuring molecules that are present in healthy individuals that don't have cancer and they STOP cancer from growing. That simple.

He has cured adults AND children that have even had very rare, agressive terminal cancers.

Call to action:

1. Please watch this documentary - you could save someone's life, maybe even your own!
2. Donate money to this Dr.'s cause

Here is the link to his clinic, which is located in Houston, TX, just off IH-10

God Bless!

No "Poo" !

No, not that kind of poo.......shampoo. :)

Today is Day 1 of No Poo for me. And my hair looks and FEELS amazing!!!! See below.

What does No "Poo" really mean or entail?

Here it is...its very simple.

1 cup water - with 1 Tablespoon of baking soda dissolved in it
put this mixture in a squeeze bottle - this is your shampoo

1 cup water - with 1 Tablespoon of vinegar dissolved in it ( I used white vinegar, you can use apple cider vinegar too)
put this mixture in a squeeze bottle - this is your conditioner

Scene: Shower
Thoroughly wet your hair. squeeze your "shampoo" onto your hair until it is saturated (I used the whole mixture and thoroughly massaged it into my hair) let it set for a minute or so, then rinse thoroughly.

Squeeze your "conditioner" onto your hair until it saturated (again, I used the whole cup of the mixture and massaged it into my hair). Let it set for a minute or so, then rinse thoroughly.

That is all. I let my hair air dry - only because my hair is already pretty damaged from all the highlighting I have done in the past.

Thanks to the NO POO post on The Pistachio Project blog for the recipe and peaking my interest in this. She's also got a great page for troubleshooting too. Check it out

Uh, oh...EVOO?

I posted this weekend about starting to use the Oil Cleansing Method to clean my face.

That evening, I came across some not so bueno comments on another blog that said this method made them breakout with very painful acne that has taken them a couple months to clear up.


So, I have only used this method once to clean my face and frankly, I'm a little afraid of trying it again. I'm thinking I can deal with my tight, flaky skin after using soap much easier than painful acne.......

In case you want to read more, the comments I found were on a post on Crunchy Betty's blog about EVOO and how sometimes the labeling is fraudulent....Which I must say is a MUST read if you use EVOO. I learned alot and there is a link on the post on where you can check to see if the EVOO that you currently use really is what it is labeled as......crazy huh?

Oil Cleansing Method

I've been reading a lot lately about the Oil Cleansing Method on some of my favorite blogs (Sortofcrunchy and Crunchy Betty). It's a method to clean your face with oil instead of soap. The idea is that "like dissolves like" in dirty facial oil is dissolved by cleansing oil and leaves your skin moisturized, instead of dry, like soap can.

I've been using natural, organic soap on my face now since about July last year and on the whole, its worked pretty well for me - I've always had oily skin...however, the last month or two I've noticed that my skin is a bit tight and itchy and sometimes flaky after it dries from washing my face.
So I decided to try this new method to see if it really works or just makes an oil slick of my face. :)

Here's the recipe I am using, in case you want to try too.

Oily skin: Use 2/3 castor oil to 1/3 carrier oil. (Or measure out 2 tsp castor oil and 1 tsp carrier oil.) For the carrier oil i used EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) You can find castor oil at your local health food store, I found mine at Sprouts Farmers Market.

1. Take a bit of the oil mixture and rub it on your face - no need to take your makeup off prior to - it should take that off for you too. Rub it around - using upward strokes and let it soak in a bit.

2. Take a very warm, wet washcloth and lay it on your face a bit to open your pores, then slowly wipe all the oil off your face with the cloth.

That's it.

I was pleasantly surprised that my face didn't feel oily afterwards. It didn't feel tight and itchy afterwards either. Ladies and gentlemen, we may have a winner! :)
