Linking the dots from pesiticides in baby food to contaminated vaccines causing Autism and making children sick!!

My neighbor has a child named Nicholas.He is 16 MONTHS adorable angel.So far he does not say a single word , he shakes tentatively with sporadic convulsions-His mom is taking him to a Psychiatrist Dr for evaluation , after receiving a letter from the clinic nurse confirming that he was vaccinated with the Mercury vaccine suspected of causing Autism .She is unemployed ,going to school and her husband  unemployed as well and they need your HELP and suggestions what to do???

I wonder how many new moms now worry about the food and the vaccines that soon will enter the bodies of their babies and render them vulnerable to new diseases like Autism for example?Just wondering ???

Then I thought about why not getting those new moms some education about the baby food in the market and the vaccines before they rush to a FREE clinic offering same!

Here what Mother Jones article published today has to say:

How about MERCURY used in the Vaccines causing Autism.??......Ther......e are convincing studies ..but available only in EUROPE which support this while here in the US it is the opposite where it is considered as Controversey thanks to the many Sadowy sponsored studies which clear vaccines from causing Autism.The best bet is to take a chance and READ the European studies which confirm that Autism is caused by mercury found in the vaccines and also read the counter US studies supported by the main stream media and various pharmaceutical funds .Here is a starting point:

Alternatives to chemical pesiticides:Use those kitchen home ingredients

The Earth Day search and destroy version of PESTICIDES alternatives seems more palatable with this ecconomy that left no money in our pockets to buy fertilizers or pesiticdes.So the smart way(meaning to save and or MAKE MONEY) is to check out what the Native Americans and other World INDEGENOUS people used to combut crop busters like pests and ants..etc!

 

Let us start with a US-UNIVERSITY study recently  concerning the use of pesiticides and its other effects on Humans and animals:

Alternatives to pesticides from your home-kitchen and grocery store shelves:

1-Ants Busters: Try to use corn gritts.A South Dakotta Lacota Chief miraculasly hinted on using the corn grits to combat the ANTS that were harrasing the sweat lodgers.Now gardeners and farmers are flocking to use the recipe to combat ANTS: Simply sprinkle the corn grits at the ants nests.Wait   and ye shall behold ..nothing else could round up those pests better than CORN GRITTS!

2-Serpents  busters:Once my neighbor tried a home made recipe to scare the serpents from his garden and when it was working he started to contemplate a patent and day dream of millions of $ in his bank account but offcourse it never happened:The recipe will scare the snakes away but not kill them.Sprinke the cat poop where you suspect snakes camp and watch out the exodus!Ancient Rome Farmers  -prior to the pistol and canon invention   -used gun powder (sulfur powder) to combat snakes)!

3-Racoons and other night garden critters :Spray with a mix of castile soap and oil od Palma Crist or commonly known as Castor Oil.If you have the leaf of the castor oil plant then use its tea mixed with castor oil to spray to discourage the nite raides of the Racoon family to harvest your crop!

4-Natural Kitchen ROUND UP alternative:To win the war on garden pests one need not to have an arsenel of biological weapons .Just use VINEGAR to combar WEEDS .I personally will add Epsom Salt to a HOT water solution of white vinegar and spray in the midst of the day at weeds !Aint so weird to use vinegar to combat weeds and save money on top!

Offcourse there are other SAFE and EDIBLE alternatives to CHEMICAL POISONOUS PESTICIDES like :NEEM OIL,Garlic oil,Cayenne pepper oil and so on so forth...For now start small and save by using your kitchen rather than the biological weapons of PESTS mass destruction.

 

On Earth Day Celebrations let us salute the farmers and gardeners who keep our children,animals and precious soiland CROPS  SAFE from POISONOUS PESTICIDES!

Alternatives to pesticides:Learn how to grow your own ORGANIC PESTICIDES and save on money and health!

Long time ago ANCIENT man used  NATURAL time tested horticultural prevention methods to combat  garden pests.With the discovery of Oil and after two world wars that left over tons of chemiclas used in warfare , Modern man learned to reap good business from turning over to those leftovers and oil products to invest in a lucrative business called PESTISIDES,FUNGICIDES,HERBICIDES...and the consequences were more people visiting the hospitals and falling ill.I am not talking about those migrant farmers who have given birth to deformed children due to their exposure to the pesticides and company .I am talking about people like myself who developed allergies and sickness due to the chemiclas used to spray my food!So I took the alternative prevention way and now I have experimented with GROWING my own organic pesticides and the results were saving on both the garden center grocery and health bills.You can do it as well if you wish ,it is easy.

1)GARLIC:
I found out that garlic has an aroma that is STINKING so I used it against the pesticides.I now grow garlic on the boundaries of my vegetable garden  in addition I do extract a garlic TEA .I use the green garlic leaves in my salads as well as  to extraxt a tincture to spray my veggie garden with- even when no pests are around,it is very effective in the tropical hot and humid zones of 9-10 of S.Florida in addition to the following:

2)Marigolds: Look for Mexican(Tagetes minuta) and African (Tagetes erecta)marigols , if not available opt for the pot marigiolds(Calendula officinalis).Make sure those marigolds have SCENTS when you buy them.Buy no marigolds that are scent-less!You may brew the flowers as well to produce a tea that is effective as well in spraying against garden pests!

3)Nasturtiums:The flowers and leaves of Nasturtium are edible as well as they are effective to repel pests.You may brew a tea or just mix the extracts with other brews like garlic and marigolds.Experiment.None of those listed are toxic for humans or animals  -if used with moderation and care-but they repel pests!

4)Herbs combo:Dill -Borage-yarrow-pennyroyal-Rose mary-basil: See what is available of the above mentioned and brew.Mix with dissolved ashes and spray .Remember that if you can eat those herbs and flowers and they are safe for your bady , then it is OK to use them to combat pests.Disclaimer:Prior to using all of the above and below mentioned herbs and flowers and plants:Check with your health care professional if in doubt about any side effects or anything allergenic ,toxic or unsafe for  your  use please  discard. .Non harmful organic pesticides are  good for you and for the environment.

5)Neem tree: This tree native to India is now making headlines in combating pests.The leaves as well as the seeds and bark can be used to brew a tea that can be either enjoyed for sipping or spraying .I usually use the STINKING NEEM OIL when spraying my garden.Also , I have Neem trees planted in the garden as well to make trhe environment hostile for  bad pests but friendly for plants and humans.Remember that there are good pests like the LADY BUG...that we need to keep out of harms way!

6)Chrysanthemum(Cinaraefolium or coccineum).May be you recognise the word PYRETHRUM .It is an ingredient that is now widely used by organic pesticide pioneers like OMARI for example.It is best to grow this organic pesticide rather than buy it because there are inert materials added that are not specified in the label and might contain poisons or toxic ingredients in some of the commercial products.So home grown is best to opt for!

Now you may want to know to use which for what pests?

Good thinking.But , I personally do not discriminate against pests or anybody . I have found out that experimenting with mixing aromatherapy oils (such as citronela),soaps(such as Dr Broners castile soap) and herb teas(like the above mentioned) in MODERATE amounts(1 or 2% concentrates for example).The purpose is not to KILL the pests but rather to dicourage and SHOO them!Organic gardeners do not use invasive and harmful ways or words in their food GROWING practice.The meek shall inherit and work the land.So be not MEAN but rather MEAK if you want to inherit the earth and not DESTROY IT or KILL ITS INHABITANTS..including the little pests...shoo them away..that is the do no harm  way!

Have a Safe and happy gardening!

Prevention and alternatives to pesticides for the S.Florida Organic Garden.Another garden story to share!


We have just finished planting a Florida Drought Tolerant garden me and my friend  Christopher .We are sharing with you what we did hoping that you get a sample of what to plant now:

 

The  garden has an oval shape and we did a double dig procedure .On the peripheries we created a hill like boundary where we planted garlic,marygold,salvia,sunflower.Also we spread some seeds of cucumber and few cabbage...like a desperate effort to catch up with end of growing season as we know it !

 

Next inside the garden we planted a row of peas and  a belt of cherry and heirloom tomatos.Another row following the tomato we planted more marigold and salvia flowers.  I PERSONALLY BELEIVE IN COMPANION HERBS TO BE PLANTED NEXT TO THE VEGETABLES...SO WE HAVE PREPARED  FLATS OF THE FOLLOWING HERBS TO BE LIKE PESTS BUGS  REPELEANTS :

 

Rosemary, Greek oregano, thyme and peppermint. Another way to safeguard against plant diseases is to use PREVENTION like we are planning and using herb companions is one option.

 

There are now many ways to protect the plants and using NEEM oil sprays is one option very effective, especially here in the Tropical South. I grow the neem tree and I use its leaves as well in the prevention process...

We also believe in organic fertilizers like Blood meal which has a high nitrogen scale of 12 and it helps the rooting system .Bone meal is another good source of phosphorous that helps in plant growth as well.

 

We used a lot of recycled leaves and seaweed and ash as well...we added saw dust, composted horse manure and premium organic vegetative compost's addition to other ingredients  as well!

 

Back to the flower garden circle: within circle we sowed seeds of okra, romaine lettuce and Caribbean spinach.

We like to eat our weeds as well so we brought in a plant of purslane  and next to nit another plant of arugula  surrounded with spinach plants. Wish you gathered some benefit from our experience. Until we meet again with another garden story... Be well,

 

Tony
