millie says develop a summer skin regime

while i’ve always maintained that pimples, not chronic acne, but pimples are your friend because the skin is a superficial organ of waste expression. if there are toxins in the body, then the skin will respond by creating a pimple to release it, though unsightly, you can be happy a good deed is being done. certain times and places, such as hot fun in summer city, can lead to more pimples than one would pride. when it do, develop a summer skin regime. while different skin types need different wash, toner and moisturizer generally it’s best to go with a pH balanced soap, cold water splash, toner and moisturizer, and to repeat 2-3 times per day.

millie says tap to heal

tap to heal. there once was an organ who dwells in the chest behind the breast bone or sternum as those detail oriented folks say. lying close to the heart, made stronger by self-love, self-care, joy, prayer and hope it was devoted to helping the body heal itself. its name was thymus gland, an endocrine organ committed to the activation of fighter and helper cells synthesized in the bone marrow. thymus gland would spring into action telling specific white cells to go to the area of weakness, infection when repair and defense was needed. this was a big job especially when it resides within the body of tired, stressed, overworked, overdrugged individuals. thymus gland told me to relay a message to you so that you would enable its ability to heal your body. if it could talk it would say “tap me to heal; I need you to be relaxed to function well; tap me to heal right at the breast bone with the tips of your fingers; coordinated arm and leg movements strengthen me such as swimming, yoga, brain games, marching; tap me to heal gently but with intent; I am nourished by antioxidants, sleep, probiotics, and astragalus; tap to heal me heal you.”

millie says select superior salba seed

select superior salba seed. an ancient medicinal food related to the mint plant, Salvia hispanica L, was historically used by the aztecs who fed it to their messengers to give them running stamina. the white colored salba has been bred to be higher in nutrients than many other superfoods combined. nutty, gelatinous and satisfying this superseed is high protein, omega 3, fibre, magnesium, folate (folic acid), potassium, calcium, iron and vitamin C. satisfying as it cuts foods cravings, maintains blood sugar levels and encourages a positive mood, consider this a well rounded food supplement. Take in porridge, cereal, shakes, salads, yogurt, bread or by itself, 2 tablespoons reportedly contains 6 X more calcium than a glass of milk. so watcha waiting for, suck on salba.

millie says level off the edge

level off the edge. irregular eating habits can really throw blood sugar, insulin and serotonin into a spin. not only does starvation sabotage productivity and performance it also sends mixed messages to hold onto as much permanent energy as possible (fat) and lose the mind. slow down the whirl by eating regular meals. Studies show that eating every 2-3 hours, including a healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks is an effective way avoid cravings, motor agitation, nervousness and emotional instability. a balanced one-plate meal consisting of protein (beans, sprouts, nuts, seeds, meat, fish, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese), complex carbohydrates (berries, greens, yellow-orange-red vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds) and healthy fats (cold water fish, olive, coconut, flax, nuts, seeds, avocado, nut butters) will provide a solid foundation for stress reduction. so buck up and eat.

millie says forget the flu shot

flu shot schmu schmot. only in special populations are people likely to become dangerously ill from the flu (Hemophilus Influenza Virus type A-numbered strains are mutating constantly). the immunocompromised living in tight quarters with other immunocompromised; nursing homes, hospices, hospitals and shelters may effectively take the flu shot to avoid becoming sick since sickness could of ten lead to death or a worsening of a current state of health.

the rest of us are better off getting sick in most cases as illness turns over our immune system allowing the white blood cells to mount a response, kill it and gain long term memory and a good reputation from having done that. the flu shot does not provide long term immunity from strains of influenza whereas getting the actual flu does. some studies have shown that the flu shot given en masse may be economically feasable saving dollars from time off work, but does not benefit general health. instead of the flu shot consider protecting yourself and family the old fashioned way: increasing the immune system though 9-10 hours of sleep, vitamins contained in herb teas, lemon and honey, soups from root veggies, greens, fish and meat, avoiding white flour and sugar, zinc losenges on a full tum, reducing stress, getting plenty of fluids (no coffee or beer).

millie says october 5

Hello, chokecherries, saskatoon berries and gooseberries, oh my. Goodbye noni, gogi, coffee berries and acai. Beware spending premium dollars for dried cure-alls stored in containers and plastic bags having formerly contained more antioxidant super power prior to being dried then shipped from the Himalayans. Devouring fresh forage growing wild and free on crown land will provide more phytochemicals you see-a, there is no panacea but many super foods locally found rather than bound for other destinations.
