APRIL Is Sold-Out - No "Cides"

As of last night, we are completely sold-out for April C.S.A., this includes poultry, beef, pork, lamb and goat.

We have increased our growing beds this year to reflect change. This year we have connected with a wonderful local, heritage, organic seed supplier and we will be growing some of the most delicious, old fashioned Italian summer and winter squash varieties, tomato varieties, Spaghetti squashes, vine fruit varieties..in our pick-your own garden.

Growing heritage crops that grow naturally and seasonally, without the use of artificial lights, artificial soil additives and No G.M.O. seeds. and of course, without any "CIDES" or "SPRAYS"  is ecologically safe, sustainable and just plain healthy for our families, freinds, neighbors, farm members, sustainers, our soil and livestock.

Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way

Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way

http://colloidalsilversecrets.blogspot.com/2009/04/colloidal-silver-healing-ear-infections.html

Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way

by Angela M. Kaelin

Almost everyone has suffered from an ear infection at one time or another. It is such a common childhood disorder that most children experience an ear infection before the age of four. Some adults are chronic sufferers.

Untreated, or improperly treated, these infections can lead to hearing loss.

Conventional treatments typically involve multiple doctor visits, the use of problematic antibiotics, potentially liver-damaging painkillers, and in more severe cases, surgeries, involving dangerous anesthesia and the actual puncturing of the eardrum.

Knowing the dangers of over-prescribing allopathic antibiotics, some of the more conservative doctors will take a “wait and see” approach to an ear infection, hoping that it will go away on its own. This approach can allow the condition to worsen before they resort to their risky drug and surgery treatments.

Fortunately, there is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to ear infections. It is safer, far less expensive and it works very fast to put an end to pain and infections in the ears. A few drops of a safe yet powerful mineral supplement known as colloidal silver can stop the trouble of ear infection over night!

How Ear Infections Start

Ear infections have a number of different causes. Popular swimming holes and public pools can be the source of fungi or bacteria-contaminated water that enters the ear and irritates the canal. Commonly known as “swimmer's ear,” this condition is medically known as otitis externis. It can also be caused by eczema in the ears, or by too vigorously cleaning or scratching the opening of the ear. It is generally characterized by moderate pain, particularly during chewing and swallowing, or if the infected ear is tugged upon.

Ear infections are most prevalent in winter and in spring because bacteria from respiratory infections, allergies and colds can reach the ears. Most of the time, it is the small conduit in the ear called the Eustachian tube that becomes blocked or infected. This tube reaches from the nasal cavity to the middle ear. It is so small that even cigarette smoke or air pollution can irritate it and cause it to swell, causing nausea and vertigo. Infections of the Eustachian tube and the middle ear are called otitis media.

Middle ear infections are so common in small children because the Eustachian tubes are very tiny and they have not hardened yet. So, they are easily irritated and penetrated by pathogens. Children in preschools where they are exposed to respiratory bacteria and viruses are particularly vulnerable.

Conventional Treatments Can Be Extreme

Before allopathic doctors treat the actual ear infection, they will likely treat the pain with a painkiller or anti-inflammatory. Typically, doctors prescribe the painkillers acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Acetaminophen, commonly known as Tylenol, can be toxic to the liver and has been linked to other health problems. Ibuprofen, commonly known as Motrin and Advil, can irritate the esophagus and stomach.

The doctor will usually prescribe antibiotics to target particular pathogens. Sometimes they don't prescribe the right one, or the bacteria mutate and become resistant, and additional antibiotics must be prescribed.

In the case of chronic ear infection where the fluid builds up behind the eardrum and presents a danger of bursting it, the doctor may prescribe on-going treatment with antibiotics. When these treatments fail, they may recommend surgery to remove adenoids and insert a tympanosty tube for drainage. To insert this tube, they actually puncture the eardrum. This tube may fall out on its own accord after a few months, or further surgery may be required to remove it. This procedure results in complications in about half of the cases. Complications include hearing loss.

Frequent visits to the doctor to check on progress will be required. If they do resort to surgery they will give you or your child a general anesthesia. Common side effects are nausea, muscle aches and dizziness. In rare cases, there are more serious complications and even death. But, even minor complications or rare ones are too much when the whole thing is entirely unnecessary!

Colloidal Silver Keeps It Simple

Colloidal silver is perhaps the world’s simplest and most effective cure for ear infections. That’s because it is all-natural, comes in liquid form which can easily be dropped into the ear using a standard eyedropper, and is easily available over-the-counter at health food stores or through internet sources. What’s more, unlike conventional prescription antibiotic drugs which are designed to work against specific classes of bacteria, and won’t work at all against fungal pathogens or viruses, colloidal silver has very broad spectrum antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal qualities. Indeed, it almost always works regardless of what’s causing your infection.

And unlike conventional antibiotic drugs, colloidal silver can’t contribute to the problem of mutating pathogens, because it doesn't work the same way conventional antibiotic drugs do. Instead of essentially poisoning the pathogens like antibiotic drugs do, the tiny, sub-microscopic particles of pure mineral silver in colloidal silver simply adhere to the cell walls of harmful microorganisms, inhibiting enzyme production and, in effect, smothering them. If the silver particles are small enough, they can even adhere to the DNA of viruses, and disrupt the ability of the viruses to replicate, altogether preventing the spread of viral infections.

Both bacteria and viruses can be present in cases of ear infection. And oft-times a fungus can be involved, as is commonly the case with swimmer's ear. Clearly, conventional antibiotic drugs are inadequate treatments for such infections since they are completely ineffective against fungal and viral pathogens, and in many cases barely effective against bacteria. But colloidal silver known to be effective against all of these pathogens.

How to Use Colloidal Silver to Treat Ear Infection*

According to the experienced colloidal silver users we’ve interviewed, less is more when it comes to treating ear infections with colloidal silver.

You see, even though the pain of an ear infection can be excruciating, the area affected is actually very small. The part of the ear most commonly affected, the Eustachian tube, is tiny. People unfamiliar with colloidal silver usage might be tempted to administer copious amounts of the substance into the ear in an attempt to end suffering faster. But, three drops in the affected ear, once or twice per day at most, should be sufficient. Any more is not only a waste, but it can be counterproductive to effective treatment.


That’s because silver is such a powerful anti-microbial substance, using too much of it can leave tiny silver particles deep inside the ear canal, and on the ear drum itself, which can inhibit the growth of healthy bacteria, causing a temporary imbalance that in some cases leads to sensations of vertigo. This usually disappears within 24 to 48 hours after you discontinue colloidal silver usage. But it can be avoided altogether simply by limiting the use of colloidal silver in the ears to just a few drops, once or twice a day during the course of the ear infection.

Local Farms-Following Our Footsteps

Thank you to all our wonderful farm members, co-op, and CSA leaders, participating farmers, markets, artisans,  and sustainers who support our mission to provide clean, pure, honest, heritage, reliable, heirloom, dependable, free range, grass fed and delicious foods to dinner tables across the country.

Educating and helping, in any way we can is one of our passions. We are dedicated to helping people get started with growing as much of their own food as possible and to being supportive, active  participants with making it happen.

To be an active part of healing the earth, securing heritage livestock breeds and heirloom variety foods, fruits, vegetables and protecting old fashioned farming and shopping traditions is very important to our mission.

This year we have participated in 3 more farms getting started and 1 to expand.  We are happy to share our knowledge, little secrets and traditions.

More and more people are learning about the importance of the health, ecological and economic benefits of keeping with foods grown and harvested without the use of G.M.O's, ANY Pesticides, Herbicides, Germicides and Preservatives (including, but not limited to organic approved). 

Here, we grow heritage breeds of livestock, heirloom variety (non-G.M.O.)  crops, pasture and continue to grow as a sustainable, bio-dynamic and solid permaculture.

Growing food naturally, beneath the bright blue sky and the fresh breeze, sharing the land with natures critters, can be challenging, especially in the high desert with high winds, snow loads, extreme heat, freezing conditions and drought; however, many many people live in the high desert, and with the rising cost of living and the economic turmoil, it may become increasingly more difficult to get clean, dependable and naturally grown food from reliable, honest and stable sources.

Again, thank you to all our wonderful farm members, co-op, and CSA leaders, participating farmers, markets, artisans,  and sustainers who support our mission to provide clean, pure, honest, heritage, reliable, heirloom, dependable, free range, grass fed and delicious foods to dinner tables across the country.

10,000 small farms are popping up every year, we are thrilled to be at the heart of all the action.

Cloned Meat - FDA approves as healthy

Cloned Beef Burgers: "Delicious"

This was written in 2007  

The FDA has said food from cloned animals is safe. Though it won't land in markets yet, cloned meat is being served at one company

The FDA is likely to issue a final, formal approval of cloned food before the end of the year. Experts say the agency will probably make the United States the first country to allow products from cloned livestock to be sold in grocery stores.          "This was written in 2007"  

"It's not a big deal," says Mower. "I've eaten cloned beef for a year and a half. It's scientifically proven to be safe."

Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food - Gov't GRANT, LOANS & SUPPORT

You can get a government grant to grow food. Grants, Loans & Support.

Earlier this year, in response to President Obama's challenge to reinvigorate local food systems, each of USDA's 26 agencies was asked to come forward with programs that can help support this effort...and they did.


It's no surprise that USDA has programs throughout its operations that can assist farmers, help consumers access nutritious foods, and support rural community development. We provide billions of dollars annually doing all this and more. What may be a surprise is that we have programs all across the Department that can cultivate local capacity to strengthen local and regional food systems. We don't need to create a new slate of programs; we need to make sure that the ones we have work better.

In some cases, you may be using approved pesticides, but since they are approved, you may still be able to get Certified Organic or Certified Organic Exempt (C.O. Status, may depend on income reported and/or types of pesticide use reported). Please contact the USDA to get more accurate information. http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/recd_map.html For more program information: http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/rbs/busp/rbeg.htm

We encourage everyone interested to apply and participate in this U.S.D.A. project.

NOTE: Our small green house is not part of a grant or approved pesticide study, we built it ourselves with our member and sustainer support, and only need it to start early seeds.  We grow everything "Pesticide-Free" outside in the sunshine and fresh air; this is how our members, family, friends, neighbors and livestock want food grown.  As a result, we do lose a bit more produce to the critters, and we bargain for it, so we grow a little extra to supply the critters too, the chickens take care of the little, bugs. 

That being said, some tri-city residents and farmers markets participants have chosen this route and they have our support. We continue to encourage folks to grow to their ultimate potential and to help the supply of local, affordable and alternative food supply. They may be millionaires soon! and you can be too (LOL-LOL).

The Girl Next Door Is The Future Of Food by: By Leah Zerbe

USDA data shows that women are the fastest-growing demographic in small-scale farming

WHAT IT MEANS: Women in farming is a red-hot trend. Gap fashion aside, women's growing interest in sustainable, small-scale farming is leading to farmer's markets full of healthier food for communities. And while the ActionAid report looked at women in agriculture in other parts of the world, rest assured, it's a phenomenon that's bringing food that's healthier food for people and the planet here in the United States, too. The last United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) most recent U.S. Ag Census showed that women small-scale farm owners are the fastest-growing demographic surveyed.

AP IMPACT: Past medical testing on humans revealed

AP – FILE - In this June 25, 1945 picture, army doctors expose patients to malaria-carrying mosquitoes...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110227/ap_on_he_me/us_med_experiments_on_humans

 

 

By MIKE STOBBE, AP Medical Writer Mike Stobbe, Ap Medical Writer – 10 mins ago

ATLANTA – Shocking as it may seem, U.S. government doctors once thought it was fine to experiment on disabled people and prison inmates. Such experiments included giving hepatitis to mental patients in Connecticut, squirting a pandemic flu virus up the noses of prisoners in Maryland, and injecting cancer cells into chronically ill people at a New York hospital.

Much of this horrific history is 40 to 80 years old, but it is the backdrop for a meeting in Washington this week by a presidential bioethics commission. The meeting was triggered by the government's apology last fall for federal doctors infecting prisoners and mental patients in Guatemala with syphilis 65 years ago.

U.S. officials also acknowledged there had been dozens of similar experiments in the United States — studies that often involved making healthy people sick.
