I Apologize, but I am NOT Sorry. Find out why.
Bula! Everyone. First let me begin by saying how much I really appreciate you all for your friendship or following. Some of you know me personally, while others know me via FB only. Many of you have followed me for several years as some of you are new to my pages. For each of you, I thank you and am deeply grateful.
For those of you who do not know me very well, I do not want to state to much here as you can read all my bio on my web page at: HERE However, I am an extremely passionate individual whom is devoted to making the world a much better, brighter, joyful and safer place. What I mean by ‘safer’ is to keep safe products on the market for you and your family. I am passionate due to my long journey dealing with my son’s deadly disease of Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis, while doctors continued to lie and withhold information. I set out on a quest to make awareness, then to educate and lastly to wake the masses up and show them who is lying and who is stealing your money and who the actual frauds are. (You can read more of my journey via my website on my bicycle tour page).
I am making a PUBLIC APOLOGY. Yes, you heard me right. However, I am NOT sorry.
I will explain why. I am typically not sorry for any postings that I make or information that I put out for the public to see.
Most of you have been seeing some, over the edge, posts to expose fraud, schemes, cover-ups and out-right lies. Some of you are taken back by my blatant postings while others understand my nature. While my posts may seem to be of “hatred”, “anger”, “rude” or even “unhappy”, I can assure you that is the farthest from the truth. Those of you who know me, can attest that I am one of the genuinely happiest people on the planet and I walk my talk and preach what I practice. Do I make mistakes? Hell yes! Who doesn’t? Do I say stupid shit? All the time, well a lot! Do I make people angry or upset? Not on purpose! Do I lie? Hell no! Do I steal other’s content? Nope! (It does not give me a sense of feel good unless I know it came from within MY mind) This is why it takes me so much longer to write something as I am doing my research and coming up with my own words and thoughts of the matter. If I say something from someone else, then I clearly quote it and state the source.
Some see me as having a ‘razor tongue’ others see me as stating the truth. Either view is OK. The thing that should not be dismissed, is that the information in which I post comes from pure exposure of the fraudulent propaganda that is continually bombarded in our faces. Therefore, I walk a thin line when making public post that people are not ready to see or hear.
Here’s the deal.
The reason I began my journey way back in 2005 (actually before that, in 2000, but 2005 was when I went on to further my research about all the lies I was fed about my son’s deadly disease), was to share the TRUTH about my son’s disease, Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis. I needed to share this message far and wide and tell the public they were being LIED to about the pharmaceutical industry and that their own western doctors were lying! You can read Coty's story HERE. I needed to spread this message to save children from dying from this life threatening disease. I set out on a mission to do just that. I did not care how ‘crazy’ people thought I was, I knew I had to get this out to the masses. My journey then turned to studies, working with holistic doctors and chiropractors then finding the truths of all organic food products and companies. I eventually journeyed on to be a huge proponent of the NON GMO Project. I did tours, marches, protest, made phone calls to the senators, congressmen and governors, spoke in schools, colleges and random events. This all led me to discover and Uncover the hidden dark side of all industries. WOW! Bam! I continued to get blindsided and disheartened by company after company after organization. This was disturbing, therefore, I knew I had to change my OWN ways. I had to change my approach to reach the people with the cold hard factual truths, but this time in the organic and holistic arena. Here’s the deal. It is sometimes a ‘damned if you do’ – ‘damned if you don’t’ scenario. If I choose to keep silent on truths that I see and experience personally, then I am guilty of ‘’not letting others know how to protect themselves’ or let them go down a road of deception when I knew all along. Or if I DO say something, then I am presumed ‘guilty’ of being ‘unhappy’, ‘finger-pointing’, ‘angry’ or ‘hasty’.
Here are some facts and thoughts to ponder
FACT: NON GMO Project is NOT needed for a label.
REASON: ORGANIC means NON GMO. When a product has the Organic seal, then it is automatically tested and verified NON GMO.
FACT: NON GMO Verified does not mean the product is not sprayed with toxic pesticides, herbicides or the entire package is not tainted with HFCS, Canola oil, Soybean oil or other toxic ingredients.
REASON: The NON GMO Project is only in place to see how many seeds have been genetically modified, they do not test for other toxic poisons in the food supply. Non Gmo project does not deny this.
FACT: Vaxxed, The Movie is NOT an Anti-Vaxx movie
REASON: They have other visions in which they state on their site
FACT: There are NO safe vaccines.
REASON: None of them have ever been proven to be safe or effective in any case. Vaccines should be abolished.
FACT: Nestle Former CEO and now Chairman; Peter Brabeck-Letmathe stated that ‘Water should NOT be a human right, but rather a commodity”.
REASON: Nestle wants to control the water supply for the world and sell it back to consumers for a profit.
FACT: Garden of Life partnered with Nestle company.
REASON: “To get products in more markets”. Real reason: Nestle and other toxic companies are buying as many organic companies as they can to taint the markets.
FACT: Health Nut News did misinform the public about the dead doctors scandal and stole information from other people.
REASON: Reasons unknown other than embarking on self glorification on dead people?
REAL REASON: To scare the public into thinking that the pharmaceutical industry is going around knocking off random doctors. We have verified sources pertaining to stated findings.
Granted there is a lot of disinformation circulating around as well as a LOT of corruption in the government and even in the holistic and organic world.
I could go on and on about many stories I have published, but I will keep them to a minimal for this blog. Now, as you can see by the facts listed above, we are NOT biased to any one person, company or organization. Although, some people get hit with the truth, hard, therefore, they do not want to believe that someone has been lying to them or deceiving them all along. Thus, we are seen as 'haters' and 'negative' people.
Here are a few definitions to ponder deeply.
HAPPY: adjective, happier, happiest.
1. delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing:to be happy to see a person.
1.the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by somethingexceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation: She felt the joy of seeing her son's success.
1.the quality or state of being happy. good fortune; pleasure; contentment; joy.
TRUTH: noun, plural truths
[trooth z, trooths] (Show IPA)
1. the true or actual state of a matter: He tried to find out the truth.
2. conformity with fact or reality; verity: the truth of a statement.
3. verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like: mathematical truths.
4. the state or character of being true.
5. actuality or actual existence.
I am NEVER SORRY for speaking the truth.
1. having, compelled by, or ruled by intense emotion or strong feeling;fervid:
a passionate advocate of socialism.
2. easily aroused to or influenced by sexual desire; ardently sensual.
3., showing, or marked by intense or strong feeling;emotional: passionate language.
I posted the above definitions to make some points. You see, there is a lot of confusion about the use of the words, ‘happy’, ‘truth’, ‘happiness’ and ‘joy’. While one would think that happy would mean the same as happiness, actually they have deeper meanings as you will note above. One is ‘happy’ due to an immediate presence of what is presented in front of them. One can obtain ‘happiness’ by digging DEEPER into the realm of the Unseen. Then we have the meaning of ‘JOY’ in which is the emotion of something greater. Now, we come to ‘truth’. Who wants that? After all, it comes with disappointment and perhaps even ‘unhappiness’, right?
As I discussed above, you will note that my missions began with SHOUTING the TRUTHS from the mountain tops and I really did NOT care whom I “offended”. I knew the truth needed to get out to save these precious babies to keep them from dying and to let the world know WHO is lying and why.
In all my travels and tours around the country, somewhere along my journey, I, myself, got caught up in this worldly vision of “HAPPY” instead of feeding my soul TRUE JOY. I got sidetracked. Therefore, I began spreading nothing but ‘happy’ and ‘positive’ posts to make you feel all fuzzy inside and make you feel like everything is just wonderful! Now, don’t get me wrong, I AM GENUINELY HAPPY and filled with JOY every single day. However, my ‘truth bomb’ posts appear to make people think that I am full of anger or resentment or I am unhappy. You see, the world has been so manipulated that the word ‘happy’ and ‘positive’ now mean, LOOK THE OTHER WAY and let us do what we want. This comes along with the term: OFFENDED. Isn’t it funny how everyone is offended about everything these days?
What people need to realize, is that TRUE JOY, that is what I am switching my language to…the word JOY instead of happy, comes from the UNERSTANDING of truths and reasoning behind the madness. Sure, at the moment of finding out truth, we become unhappy. However, that unhappy feeling should pass quickly as we come to understand the state of being in which it came from. Happiness of Joy is not to be confused with that happy “moment” of instinct.
This next paragraph goes out to all of my ‘Christian’ friends whom like to tell me I am not reflecting a good ‘nature’. Hmmm. Really? Jesus said he came to bring 'a sword' instead of peace.
Think on these verses.
For all of my Agnostic, Nostic, Buddhist, Spiritual, Hindu or Atheist friends out here, are you following me? The world is an upside down backassward place in which everything is hidden behind the ‘happy’ factor. Everyone wants to happy all the woes away and pretend that nothing is going on in the world around them. True enough, we create our OWN peace and joy within us and we can choose to have JOY or don’t choose. However, we are to teach and help those who need guidance. We are to provide great information for everyone to make their OWN informed decisions.
The moral of the story and the points that I am wanting to make are, that posting TRUTHS when you have facts to back them up does not make you an unhappy person! Period.
When we fully understand that real JOY and HAPPINESS comes with TRUTH, then we can learn how to LIVE life and protect ourselves with the proper armor.
Let me ask you all this question. What if I invited you over to my house for a dinner party. I told you that we are having an “ALL ORGANIC” dinner and you can feel TOTALLY safe when enjoying this beautiful dinner because we sourced from the best farmers, companies and stores. That’s all I told you. You all come. What I did not tell you was, we had gluten in the bread, almonds in the gravy, cow’s milk in the sauce and we used canola oil to cook all the dinner with. How would you feel? Let me guess, “happy”?
To summarize this blog article for you. I want the world to know, along with my team of Truth Warriors, how WE want nothing but the betterment for humanity, the planet and to protect organic and holistic standards. We are here to PROTECT you from fraud, lies and deception. We are here to present to YOU, the People, the FACTS of all matters. We want you to have factual information to make your own informed decisions. We are PASSIONATE about the health of the world and getting the true messages out to the world. Our passion is misunderstood as ‘anger’, ‘unhappy’, ‘rude’ and ‘hatred’. We are far from any of these. We truly care about YOU and the planet. We get saddened by the fact that others continue to come in and misrepresent the organic, holistic and natural world of amazing companies and products. We are here for YOU, to make sure you are getting the best of the best information and products for your family. We want YOU to be the healthiest and most informed YOU that you can be! While we want you to experience the “Happy” factor, we want you to be EDUCATED and aware so you can be PREPARED for any adversity that may come your way. This way you can experience REAL JOY & HAPPINESS with having peace of mind and free form wonder.
Therefore, our Rainbow Warriors Team is NOT only here to help you get the best of the purest organic products, but to help protect humanity and the planet.
Here are more great writings from Rainbow Warrior, Rudy Twomoon: Let Our Voices Echo

the FACTS out to the world.
I hope this clears up any animosity that some of you may have had
towards myself or my team of truthers.

Facial Serum to Defy Ageing: You can make it yourself!
Have you been looking for that perfect skin care 'magic serum' to do what you want it to do for reversing the appearance of ageing, or combating acne, rosacea and toning up the skin?
First, let me start by saying, that there is really no 'magic potion'. If you have read chapter 14 in my book, Fuel for the Body, then you will understand my philosophy about skincare routines and products. Also, if you read my bio and the skincare page on this site, you will see that I have a long history in skincare and beauty supplies. I was the regional executive of a prominant toxic company for 8 years. I was a make up artist for 6 years and a modeling teacher for 5 years. I know what the toxic world of chemical poison soup mixes do to your skin and body. (While it may not immediately impact your skin or health, the long run effects are not good. I had my own experience with my skin after long use of the toxic formulas.) As always, if you can't eat it, then don't wear it on your skin. After all, our skin is our largest organ in which is a gate way for passing toxins OR nutrition to our blood cells. We should always look within to get to the basis of our seeming problems with our skin appearances. For instance, take a look at this chart below. It is just a glimpse of how our outward skin reflects ailments going on inside our bodies.
slather our bodies in toxic poisons, then it only makes sense that our internal being will suffer. This is why a lot of people who eat all organic, cannot figure out why they still get sick and diseased. It is because it has not occured to them about using toxic poisons on their bodies. For that matter, it has not occurred to them that their household cleaning products wreak just as much havoc on their health as the toiletries. Are you following me? I dive deeper into this philosophy of skin care routines in my newews book entitled: Feed Your Face...Beyond Skin Deep This book will be released mid March 2018. Will be something worth your read, as it discusses more than outer skin care, but feeding the spirit and mind to reflect your outward over all appearance.
I tell you all of this to let you know how very important it is to keep a healthy gut! Cleanse your gut. to cleanse your skin. You really are what you eat from your head down to your feet! smile. Therefore, when we are on that quest to find that 'magical' potion, serum or antedote, it is important to know that these serums, EVEN the organic ones will only work temporily to bandage the problems. Granted, the organic serums will be far better than those toxic department store creams and the organic and edible ones will indeed FEED and NOURISH your cells within. However, if you are not tending to your eco system within you, then you are creating a chemical soup mixture to begin a warfare with your cells. We must care for our abodes we live in, because when that is destroyed, then where else will we live?
I encourage you to eat as organic and locally as you possibly can to ensure real wholesome nutrition dwells in your body. Avoid that white, cocain looking stuff that the faux phude industry wants to call sugar, at all cost. Switch to coconut sugars, date sugars, raw cane juice and even stevias or sunroot nectar. This is noted in the 'Sweetest Deception' chapter of Fuel for the Body. Also noted in FFTB, in the 'Salt Phobia' chapter, you will see the importance of switching out your salts to REAL mineralized unbleached salts such as himalayan, redmond real, black salts and deep Mediterranean salts. Avoid sodas at all cost. Lay low on the alcohol intake. I know, there are some out there who say, but red wine is so good for you. Do some research on red wines and how the sulfates cause problems after a few years of consuming this. I know first hand, I was a red wine drinker. White wine is a better option, but on occasion only. Consuming alcohol is a new topic, therefore, just enjoy a drink on special occasions. Eat as many colors of the rainbow as you can. Sure, you have heard this time and again It is true. Did you know that by consuming a large amount of leafy greens and carrots, that it can help increase your natural tanning ability without doing much sun bathing? Yes, it is true, the more organic greens and carrots you consume, your skin will begin producing more melonin, which is the natural pigment that enables your skin to darken naturally. We will talk about this in another blog. There is so much more I could tell you on this topic, but I am keeping it short for this blog because I know you are patiently awaiting on the 'magical' serum you can make yourself! Basic rules are to aviod those products I just mentioned. Furthermore, lay off going to fast 'faux' phude places and lay off on processed foods that come in a box. Incorporating these habbits will greater enhance your ability to achieve the skin you desire. Try out my 'Edible Shower/Bath' routine listed here on this website. There are many other oils and routines that I have not listed here as those are used in other concoctions I make up. I use other oils on my skin such as black cumin seed, lavendar, avocado and rose hip, however, I chose these specific oils to do a certain task that anyone can use for any skin type.
OK, now down to the reasoning for this blog. The Best Beauty Serum YOU can make at home. Of course, if you do not want to take the time to purchase all the oils and bottles and you do not want to take time to make it yourself, you can purchase the ready "Made with LOVE' directly from us. We have made a great package with Plant Spirit Botanical Company to get our TRIBAL Line of products out to you. The Rainbow Warriors Tribal Line. How cool is that? Just mention discount code: LOVEOILS10 for 10% off.
Some of you may be wondering why in the world I chose these certain oils, after all, some of them seem a bit out there for skin care. Let me explain why I chose these particular oils for this serum. I will list the oils that I chose and their benefits. Keep in mind that the benefits I mention here are very minimal. The oils listed have so many other uses and benefits for other remedies. However, I wanted to keep it focused on skin care rather than explaining about each oil and where they came from. As noted in my last blog, it is always important to choose oils that are 'Aroma-therapeutic' grade. As this will ensure the safetiness and performance of the oil. It is also a good note to take that really pure companies should have the Pure Integrity Verified Seal such as Plant Spirit Botanical Company does.
First oil of choice is CARDAMOM. Now that's a strange oil for skin care, right? Let's see the benefits.
Cardamom is an aromatherapy and is known for it's warming abilities and exotic frangrance. This aroma has a calming effect on the senses. Just breathing in this awesome aroma takes you to your own happy world! Therefore, I chose this in part, due to it's calming fragrance. Next, as it was used in the African and Middle Eastern cuisines, it's particular therapeutic qualities have already been pointed out in historic Vedic texts, that date back to 3000 years! The Egyptians also utilized cardamom in perfumes as well as incense. Due to it's high quality of iron and copper content, this makes it essential for cellular energy metabolism along with the generation of red blood corpuscles. This is one of the main reasons I chose this oil as it generates on a cellular energy level. It also sports manganese and postassium in which support the anti-oxidant levels of the oil. Ahh, and then there is the awesome stimulant and aphrodiiac effect it has. How can you go wrong with that? Lastly, why I chose this oil, is that is gives skin radiance. If you want to get completely glowing skin, very few things are as good as cardamom oil. It is full of Vitamin C as well and we know the importance of this beauty vitamin. Not only does it give skin it's radiant glow, it acts as a powerful anti-oxidant and detoxifies our entire body. This helps to reverse the damage caused by free radicals. It is also great for just an emotional well being. What better way to absorb and smell the aroma than by wearing it on your face?!
Next, I chose GERANIUM. This is a great oil and popular in the skin care industry. Why? It has an astringent property in which induces contractions in various parts of the body, including skin. This enables it to keep the skin from sagging and therefore, preventing wrinkles or even softening wrinkles. It reduces scar marks, even those from surgical proceedures as well as acne scars or chicken pox. Who wants unsightly scars on their face? This is your antedote. It also inproves the circulation of the blood in which enhances the ability of melanin production. The pigment that softly darkens your skin, naturally. Geranium promotes cell regeneration in which recycles dead skin cells into regenerating new ones to give your skin a continued brighter glow. It is very beneficial in treating dermatitis, ecesma and other skin infections as well as it works great in combating acne. It has also been prized by the Egyptians for keeping beautiful radiant skin.
BERGAMOT is another unsuspecting oil that I chose for this serum. Why? This oil has alpha-pinence and limonene in which are anti-depressants as well as stimulating. This aroma creates a fresh and happy feeling, therefore helping to relieve sadness. Bergamot oil is also anti-bacterial in which help to cleanse oily skin and prevent other skin ailments, it is also anti-inflammatory which helps the pain from headaches or muscle tension, it is anti-fungal and anti-spasmodic. It also aids in the help of reducing scars and evening out your skin tone to have a more clear complexion. It can also relieve congestion when placing several drops of this oil in your hands and cupping them over your nose and mouth to inhale deeply.
Next on the list is my all time favorite! The Fabulous FRANKINCENSE! It is another oil with astounding astringent properties. It helps in the caring of wounds such as deep cuts, scrapes and burns. It helps to fade scars at a much faster rate and even will fade stretch marks! It is cytophylactic, in nature, meaning it helps to generate new cells for skin purification. With this component along with the components of the astringent property, this oil is a catalist for rapidly reducing the signs of ageing such as age spots, scars, wrinkles and discoloration. This oil is great for relieving deep head injuries such as concussions. (I used this for my daughter's treatment) Simply rub a few drops on the back of the neck and on the spine and inside the belly button and the oils will be despensed throught out the nervous system rapidly and easier to help in alleviating the cause of injury. It is alos great fro tightening the muscles in the skin to prevent sagging. This oil is known as the "King of Kings" of the oils as it is very beneficial to remove skin tags, worts and moles. This oil was also used in the regimens of the queens of Egypt and Greek Goddesses.
Now comes another unsuspecting essential oil. The awesomeness of ROSEMARY. Why? While this oil may not be popular in the skin care industry, it sports some amazing qualities to heal the body, mind, spirit and SKIN. The companies who use this oil are mainly hair care companies as this oil is known to stimulate hair growth and prevent or reverse baldness. It has high aantimicrobial and antiseptic qualities that make it beneficial in efforts to aid in the elimination of ecsema, dermatitis, oily skin, and acne, even adult acne. It helps to keep the skin tone in color and relieves dryness in which will result in a healthy glow when applied regularly. Rosemary has been known for it's memory boosting qualities as well as stimulates the brain cells to promote cognative function. It was considered a sacred oil in religous ceremonies by the Romans, Greeks, Egyptions and Hebrews. It is actually named as the most potent and powerful herbs and oil on the planet! How awesome is that? Now, would you want to have the most powerful herb and oil on the planet to use on your skin? I sure would, which is why I chose this oil. ;-) It is very rich in anti-oxidants which repair and remedy a load of ailments, but it is also very rich in carnosol in which is known to combat cancer cells and has anti-inflammatory properties. Studies are still out there being done on the use of this oil to rid your body of cellulite! Wow! (I have actually been trying this out and it seems to be working along with the regular dry brushing routine I have.) There are somewhere between 400 and 500 phytochemicals in rosemary essential oil.
OK, here is another odd oil to use in skin care. THYME. Who would have ever thought? Me! Why? Tyme has been used for thousands of years, mainly in the Mediterranean regions, then migrated over to the Greek regimens. It is a great herb commonly used in Ayurverdic practices due to it's high anti-carcinogenic properties. It helps to oxygenate the blood and cells, therefore allowing more blood circulation to improve the healing aids of the body. The more oxygen we have in our bodies, the better off we can ward of cancers and diseases. One of this herb's main components of the oil is Cicatrizant, this component helps to speed the healing of scar tissue and vanish spots on the skin. This is one of it's most prized possessions. Thyme is also loaded with Vitamin A and Vitamin C. These two power vitamins for skin are priceless! Or should I say, Ageless!!! The Ancient Egyptians used this oil for embalming. I know, eeewww, but it was due to it's properties of high thymol as it kills off bacteria and fungus. On the other side, the Middle Ages of the Europeans would put the raw herb under their pillows to get a more peaceful and restful sleep. Thyme oil is cleansing and purifying for the skin. A great way to wash your face is to add some drops of this oil into some purified water and cleanse your face with it. Also in the Middle Ages, Thyme was given to knights and warriors before they went into battle by ladies as it was thought to impart courage to its bearer. Now, that's the kind of oil I want to use on my skin!
Lastly is the beutiful ORANGE oil. Why? We know that citrus fruits are high in Vitamin C, mainly in the peels of the fruits. The peel is where the essential oil comes from Vitamin C is great for promoting clear skin due to it's high anti-microbial properties. It is also known to reduce the appearance of dark spots and even deminish them as well as it is a known agent to promote collagen in the skin. The more collagen your skin has, the better elasticity it has, therefore, preventing the signs of ageing such as fine lines and age spots. Due to it's high level of anti-oxidants, it is great for combating free radical damage and has anti-inflammatory abilities in which help to prevent the growth of cancers. Of course, the essential oil of Orange could not be left out of this serum.
The coconut oil is great for a carrier oil to distribute the essentials throughout your body. Coconut oil is also beneficial in protecting the skin from harmful UVB rays. The castor oil is an overall great oil to combat a host of ailments such as ecsema, dandruff, psoriasis, rashea and acne. The almond oil is great for really softening the skin and leaving it feel silky smooth as well as it helps to protect the skin against the toxins from bombarding your skin cells. These three oils, combined together, make the most amazing silkening oil you can get. Your skin will indeed thank you and you will want to continually feel of your skin to see if it is real! hahah, seriously, it is a great combination in which can be used for ANY skin type. As I discuss in my skincare chapter, coconut oil and caster oils are great at combating acne. For you teenagers out there who are worried about this 'oily' serum being to oily, no, indeed it is great for your skin. What a great jump start to preserve that youthful glow, while you are young in the first place!
There you have it, a short insight of my skincare reasoning and what different oils do for the skin. As mentioned, if you want to make this serum yourself, please email us for detailed recipe and instructions. This serum is potent, therefore it only takes a few drops to work it's 'magic'. Apply about 4 drops for your entire face and massage in gently in upward circular motions. Oh, and I forgot to mention that this Renew Serum is great for HAIR health as well! The oils and castor oil used in it are great treatments for hair follicles. Simply dab a few drops directly on your scalp and massage through your hair. If you would rather not deal with finding products and making it yourself, then we have the remedy for you! You can purchase it directly through us!

A Fun Tribal Deodorant Body Spray
Looking for that perfect natural deodorant that actually works and that is easy and inexpensive?
I have tried so many organic deodorants from all around the country, with no avail of working all day and keeping me smelling and feeling fresh. I've liked the solid salt rock the best as it prevents odors, but it never kept me feeling or smelling fresh. I wanted something with multiple purposes, something that could benefit me for more than just an odor eater. I wanted to feel fresh and smell fresh. (even during the heaviest of perspiration times as we know perspiring is very important for us to eliminate toxins better) I wanted my deodorant to benefit me in other ways as well such as a nice bug repellant, or adding benefits to my body such as stimulatig my cells and detoxing my body and enhancing my ability to keep my blood circulating. I also wanted something that would not irritate my skin. I had bad experiences with lemon juice breaking my arms out in a rash to last for 7 days! The lemon juice was amazing in ridding odors and keeping me fresh, but the citris acid in the juice wreaked havoc on my arms! Therefore, it was important for me to have something that would actually soothe my skin and at the same time, keep it soft and smoothe. Also, if I could get more magnesium in my body for my kidney health, that would be a plus for sure! Well, after much research on just the right oils and other products, I am so excited to say: "I FOUND THE BODY DEODORANT that works! for both women and men!"
Please be mindful of the quality of essential oils you buy. It is very important to know the sources for essential oils and that they are pure and not watered down. It is also important that the oils you use are 'Aroma-therapeutic' quality as well. This will ensure you are getting the purest oils. Also, it helps when a company is Pure Integrity Verified as well! ;-) All ingrediets should be organic and water should be filtered.
Here is an easy to do body spray I created for an awesome body deodorant spray!
This liquid deodorant has been tried and tested right here in the smeltering heat of the South Pacific Islands by both Jonathan and I. It feels amazing, fresh and stays through out the entire day with you!!!
HAPPY WARRIOR BODY

What makes these oils so awesome for an under arm deodorant? You can use this spray for an all over body spray to remedy other conditions as well.
I am only going to list a few benefits of each oil, although there are many other health benefits in which are used in other remedies. I chose these particular oils due to the research I did to see what oils worked best to combat body odors, toxins and germs in the body. I also chose these oils due to their therapuetic qualities to aid other conditions of the body. Lastly, I chose these oils due to the scent they would make together. ;-)
CORIANDER ESSENTIAL OIL: This oil reduces bad breath and eliminates mouth and body odor when used either internally or externally. The aroma of coriander oil mixes with sweat and fights body odor. Coriander oil also fights odor coming from your gut and secreting through your mouth. This oil helps to inhibit bacterial growth in your mouth and around your sweat glands, therefore preventing bad odors pourig out. This is a great oil to help combat depression as well. Just the scent alone will soothe the spirits. For those needing a boost in libido, guess what? It is a natural aphrodisiac! It has been used in random traditions around the world to fulfill sexual enhancements, naturally!
GERANIUM ESSENTIAL OIL: This oil has strong anti-microbial and ant-ibacterial properties These anti-bacterial properties kill the bacteria that cause body odors.

Cheap Disposable Fast Fashion Devalues Personal Self Worth
There's nothing more uplifting than being able to celebrate YOU!
All the things that make you who YOU are!
For hundreds of years our clothes gave us the ability to create our own self worth in a small yet significant way.
Unfortunately, we're living in a world fueled by globalization, international markets and the centralization of production, manufacturing and raw material sourcing; making it difficult for small clothing companies seeking to design and create more personalized products that connect buyers to sustainable and conscious purchasing. The well known brands of the fast fashion industry is the driving force of this truth.
The goal of mass produced fast fashion is to fit everyone into a giant square box, fostering the notion that we should all look the same, fit within the same standardized size category, wear only the colors we're told to and when or risk being put on the National Fashion Bandit List. To step outside the parameters, be conscious of SELF and express personal style is to open one self to being ridiculed and ostracized by friends, family and even strangers. Often being called old fashioned, out of time, boring, nonconforming, over the top, insane or described using the infamous sentence, "What was she thinking."
Expressing self worth and personal style require time, creativity, investment and standards that have existed for centuries. There's just certain facts about dressing well and expressing one's personality in an intimate way through our clothes that will never change. When a woman dresses well to express her personality you can see it in her eyes, the way she walks and how she carries herself. Big fashion brands churning out poorly constructed, color restricted, size prohibited garments using the cheapest and lowest quality fabrics they can create will never be able to compete with a woman who chooses to uphold her personal SELF WORTH and dress well.
Oftentimes, doing what's right for you is never what's right for others....that's the beauty and uniqueness of you being YOU! Are you up for the challenge?

Consumers Against Toxic Apparel
What logic can we gain from this news?
Bula! Lynnette here. You have probably heard the newest update from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in regard to a "New Crackdown" they want to implement in 2018.
Before I get to the issue at hand, let me point out a few things as thoughts to ponder.
First, let me start by stating the obvious. The Food and Drug Aministration are in the same title. An old time wonder amongst the holistic world of advocates. "What is the food administration doing with the drug administration"? "Shouldn't they be two separate entities"? We will never get a logical answer to this. Real foods should never be listed as 'drugs' nor should they be in the same arena. There has been a long battle going on as to whether to treat illnesses and diseases with western Rx drugs and remedies or treat them with natural & holistic remedies and protocols. The western medical world says that there is no "scientific" facts to back any of the holistic remedies. Whose 'science' are they referring to anyway? Shouldn't we all use common sense when taking approaches to healing our bodies? One would think so, however, it is not likely for many people to think logically as they have pressure put upon them daily by western medicine doctors and propaganda by the media. Other thoughts to ponder are as follows.
The Western world of medicine doctors claim that the Natural & Holistic world of remedies are all hocus-pocus witches brews because they leave patients in worse conditions than when they started. It is easy for the Western world to look upon the Natural world as 'quackery' when the toxic people do not follow the entire wellbeing approach. Let me explain. Now, don't get me wrong here, there is indeed a time and a place for the temporary use of Rx drugs and western medicine remedies. I will return to this sentence in a moment. The reason that most Americans think natural & holistic remedies are 'quackery' is based on a number of reasons. First, you have the mainstream media and the pharmaceutical industry continually telling the public how wonderful it is to be put on Rx drugs and inject your body with toxic poisons to 'prevent' diseases. Next, you have doctors scaring their patients into thinking that if they do not take this med or do this chemotherapy, they may surely die. Most of Americans have been fed this type of propaganda for decades, therefore, it is no wonder they think they must only trust western medicine doctors in which have been 'backed by science'. Again, whose 'science' is it based on? Drugs that are made by man and in a labe with synthetic ingredients are "approved" by the Al Mighty, FDA! On another note, the reason for the stereotype of 'quackery' in the Natural & Holistic world of healing is that we have peopel/patients whom turn to natural remedies as a last resort. What do I mean by this? I mean that the patient has tried everything they could in the western medicine world to no avail, therefore finding themselves in a desperate mode of fight. When this happens, the patient is so shaken up about their dire situation that they may try anything. Keep in mind that this person was probably in a toxic mess to begin with OR they would not be ill in the first place. I read an article that was very comical, to say the least. The gist of it was that "the body detoxes itself when it is ALIVE". If you have listened to any of my seminars, you will realize that this simply is not true in this day and time. Sure enough, the body was created to HEAL it's ownself and to detox the regular toxic debris such as extra bugs, parasites, minute metals in the soils, etc. It was NOT meant to detox the mass abundance of toxic overload from ingesting poisons from the 'faux phude' world or filtering the GMO infested seeds. The kidneys can only filter so much as well as the liver can only dump so much before they become backed up and are no longer able to function as they were intended. We should all be in the mode of preventing sickness before it ever strikes us. OK, back to my analysis of this subject. When the patient came to the world of natural remedies for healing, they are truly grasping at straws Meaning, when one comes to get healed by using natural therapies, they must understand that this is not a 'quick fix' kind of protocol as they are used to the "give it to me now and biggie size it, while you are at it" mentality. They are not used to doing anything holistic to prevent diseases from ever happening in the first place. Therefore, they also think that since it is 'natural' then what's the harm? There should be no harm done to them. However, when the person is grabbing everything in site to fuel their bodies with ammo to 'beat' the sickness or disease, they do a great injustice to them and to the natural world of healing. You see, when a patient is not taught that is an "All or Nothing" approach and they go back to eating or being the way they were when they became sick. They are not taught that you should refrain from the 'faux phude' industry and avoid processes foods like the plague. They are not taught that once healed, this does not give them any green light to go back living the way they were. They are not taught to change everything in their household from toiletries, cosmetics, foods, textiles and cleaning supplies. If you have not read my story on my son's and my approach to his "UNcurable" disease, then I encourage you to go HERE to get insight. It only stand to reason that the "natural & holistic" world of healing would not work for these toxic individuals. These are the same individuals and doctors whom say: "See, those so called 'natural remedies' do not work and everyone is full of crap!"
So as you can see, when one does not adhere to the full message of changing your complete western living lifestyle, then they reap a lot of unnecessary havoc on their lives and the world of holistic healing! This mentality is why the FDA gets away with the 'crackdowns' they keep implementing year after year.
Keep in mind, though, there is somewhat of a problem in the organic and natural healing world. Why would I say this? Simply because there are products on the market in which do not market to specific ages. Meaning they have products, such as the over media exploded, Hyland teething tablets. More on that in the FDA Article below. We want to keep out those ingredients and companies who do not adhere to toxic-free products, as you will note in the PIV seal as listed below Anyway, there are pros and cons on both sides of the arenas. How could I say there are any pros on the western side, you ask? Well, see my statements above, there is a place and a time for Rx drugs in a temporary situation such as a fatal life threatening accident or a sudden stroke or someone having a heart attack. You see, those situations call for emergency and temporary remedies. For accidents, there are paramedics in which can administer emergency protocols. . Once, in the hospital and the vicitm gains conciousness and becomes stable, it can be an easy decision to get healed the natural way. (A different story if the victim is not regaining conciousness or has a major head injury, that is a new subject). As for someone who is suffering a stroke or heart attack or even cancer, there is time to turn to Natural & Holistic remedies IF they become stable enought ater the encounter. On the other hand, to turn to "Natural & Holistic" remedies immediately suffering any of these, will not be a good choice. Why? For all the reasons just stated herein. Also, please note, that the person suffering from these ailments were in the toxic world to begin with and the outcome was just a ticking bomb waiting to explode. Therefore, it is important to note that a disease infested and ill person needs to transition into the natural healing world and be taught how to completely change their way of life and know that this is not a diet, but rather a Way of Life! However, with broken bones, it is very possible to heal and mend by using all natural remedies and therapies. Ask my son how he healed his broken ankle in which was broken completely on both sides. Went to a few 'expert' doctors in the field and even a holistic doctor and all said for sure he should have surgery. He opted not to do so and healed his own leg with out the use of any Rx drugs or therapies.
With all of this being said, I am sure you are ready for me to get to the nitty gritty of this article.
So as you may have heard by now, there are new bills with crack downs happening in the FDA arena. This took place on December 18, 2017. We have a 90 day period in which the FDA will take the public's input about this new crackdown.
FDA proposes new, risk-based enforcement priorities to protect consumers from potentially harmful, unproven homeopathic drugs.
Quote taken from the FDA's own article, HERE, from their website. "Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed a new, risk-based enforcement approach to drug products labeled as homeopathic. To protect consumers who choose to use homeopathic products, this proposed new approach would update the FDA’s existing policy to better address situations where homeopathic treatments are being marketed for serious diseases and/or conditions but where the products have not been shown to offer clinical benefits. It also covers situations where products labeled as homeopathic contain potentially harmful ingredients or do not meet current good manufacturing practices."'
Most of the natural healing world will say this is completely insane! Normally, this would be a true statement. However, at one point, once upon a time, the Federal Drug Administration was implemented to keep out any unsafetiness and "snake oil" salesmen from abusing the unsuspecting consumer. Keep in mind, I do NOT agree with the standards as they are today with the FDA nor do I belive the foods should be mixed with the drugs. After reading this article, it is pretty detrimental to begin a mass control of what is put on the shelves of the stores. The thing that the agency is trying to get accomplished is to make sure that products are being given to babies in which contain substances from plants such as belladonna in the teething tablets, are not marketed as a one stop curing aid. Furthermore, the Administration felt compelled to 'crack down' on their elvaluations of the holistic OTC supplements and 'drugs' due to 'popular' demand from the outcry of the toxic public in which should have steered clear from the natrual healings in the first place, UNTIL they were taught how to live the life!
Excerpt from the FDA's news article: "FDA says it’s going to take a tougher approach to the $3 billion-a-year homeopathy market.While the FDA still cannot fully regulate homeopathic products, it can take action on those that are potentially harmful."
You see, once the FDA found that the demand for the increase of sales was there for the homeopathy market, they decided then, to 'take action'", as this is digging into the pharmaceutical industry's pockets. We can't have this! A little note of some little light, is the 2nd sentence above here. They still cannot fully regulate homeopathic products as of now. As you can see by reading the article, it just took only one case of an infant having adverse reactions.
A word from Scott Gottlieb: He recognized in his statement that some consumers may simply prefer homeopathic approaches, and in many cases, they should be free to do so. But he also noted the FDA’s public safety obligation when it comes to homeopathy. “Our approach to regulating homeopathic drugs must evolve to reflect the current complexity of the market, by taking a more risk-based approach to enforcement,” he said. “We respect that some individuals want to use alternative treatments, but the FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit and have the potential to cause harm.”
Please take the above statement from Commissioner, Gottlieb, with caution.
What does all of this mean to you, as the consumer?
Well, it means that YOU have a responsibility to take action yourself. You have 90 days to call in or fill out a form to voice your opinion. It means that you must be on the preventative side of sicknesses. Now, I realize that the FDA is run by the Pharmaceutical industry. That being said, it is your responsibility to demand your freedom of CHOICE while you still can. This is another scare tactic the powers that be are using to get you to think they are here for 'your best interest'. Please do not fall prey to their tactics and take your health back. Flood their emails, phone lines and faxes with your outcry in the 90 day period beginning this past Monday, the 18th of December.
The moral of this story:
When venturing into the world of natural healing and holistic remedies, please use the common sense that God gave you to take care of your body. When you seek Nature's remedies, and you should, you must understand that it is a LIFE STYLE change and not just adding a remedy here and there and expectin it to "work". Our bodies, are indeed unique and amazing in that they have the ability to heal. The body can reverse diseases and sicknesses when given the proper God given tools to work with. Does it make sense to "poison your way to health"? I didn't think so. Grow your own food / medicine supply for healing.
Please think on these vital health notes and let your food be your medicine for LIFE! Remember, 'The better you take care of your body, the better your body takes care of YOU". When your body shelter is gone, where else will you live?
Wow! Have you all tried the Banana Flower? Did you know banana herbs (trees) had edible flowers on them? That's right, the banana 'tree' is NOT a tree at all. It does not have bark or a trunk like a tree, but rather many leaves closely formed together forming a huge stem that can grow 40 foot tall! The leaves are the 'trunk. This is actually classified as an HERB. One of the largest herb plants known to man. That's a fun fact for ya! Did you know you could eat that maroon beauty that stems beneath the bloomed bananas? YES indeed and it comes packed with a wealth of health benefits for you. Check it out, and check out our fun day of picking the perfect banana flowers!
Thanks to my awesome friend, Anna Shannon, for turning me on to these babies! I am now totally addicted and can't get enought of testing out different recipes with them. My favorite so far, is in the RAW as a salad of it's own. I love using the purple flowers as a bowl for my salad mix too. Also, the little flowerettes inside each leaf can be cut and eaten as well, adding even more nutrition to the salad.
Banana Flower Health Benefits
The banana flower grows on the herb, producing even more bananas. However, there are plenty of bananas to grow and taking banana flowers does not prevent the abundance of the growth of bananas.
A. High in Fiber
B. Abundant in Potassium
C. Teaming with Protein
D. Loaded with Vitamins A, C, E & K
E. Iron is also a huge element in these gems
F. Helps repair the uterus
G. Helps aid in lactation
H. Aids in menstrual cycle bleeding thus relieving pain
I. Wonder food for diabetics
J. Regulates blood pressure
K. Heals anemia
L. Relieves constipation
M. Heal wounds - prevents infections
Due to it's fiber content, these beauties are great for maintaining a healthy colon and relieves constipation!
The abundance potassium content helps to prevent 'charley horses' in the middle of the night or any time for that matter. As we know, potassium is very good for the kidney health, so you might want to integrate these beauties in your daily regime. Being a kidney patient with years of swelling and throbbing after my surgery at age 8, (read my story on the other blog and the about Lynnette page) I find these to be the perfect addition to keep my kidneys in check without feeling overly cleansed. Keep in mind, all cleansing foods are not optimum for some kidney patients. More on that in the kidney blog.
Due to it's rich content of iron, eating this flower often will replenish the hemoglobin levels, thus curing anemia.
We know that Vitamin C in the raw form from eating raw vegetables and herbs is extremely healthful in preventing diseases and reversing illnesses and repairing tissues, therefore, due to this high potency of Vitamin C, it is a great way to mend and keep your uterus in great standing. Eating raw or even sauteed banana flowers continually, during pregnancy and after child birth, helps to strengthen the uterus and tissues. Thus helping to increase lactation by stimulating progesterone hormone levels for breast milk. A great source of nutrition for new mothers and for their baby's health as well!
The banana flower is referred to as the "Heart of the Plant" or Banana Heart. For good reason too! Due to the ethanol based extracts, the banana flower inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacterias such as e-coli, bacillus, subtalis and cerus.
We all know that free radicals are one of the main culprits in premature aging. You will be happy to know that this beauty is beaYOUtiful for more reasons than one! It's abundance of Vitamin A helps to ward off free radicals and repair the skin cells to help faster rejuvenate the new skin cells for reducing the fine lines, age spots and redness. The flowers posses an abundant source of antioxidants and extracts of methanol. These are the great sources along with Vitamin A in which to keep your youthful and radiant skin alive!
To help relieve the cramps, pains and PMS of your menstrual cycle and even help ease excessive bleeding that some women incur, you should eat a cup of cooked banana flower during this time to prevent this from happening. Eating cooked banana flower and even raw salads of banana flower on a regular basis will prevent these ailments from arising in the first place. After all, we do preach about prevention is KEY to any ailment, sickness, disease and even aging. ;-)
The mention of this flower being a 'wonder food' for diabetics is due to it's high content of fiber and iron. Diabetics should consume banana flowers either boiled or alone to reduce the levels of blood sugar and raise the hemoglobin in the body. It also attributes to raising the RED blood cell count in the body which is what a lot of the problem is for many diabetics.
Due to it's high content of the many vitamins listed above, this is a great 'go to' to aid in relieving anxiety and depression! It's true, when you are feeling blue, reach for the banana flower instead of the 'code blue' of Rx drugs.
That's a little run down on the healthy benefits of these little known wonders of the earth! Here are a couple of ways we like to consume the flowers.
RAW Banana Flower Salad with Pesto Dressing
Peel off all the purple leaves of the flower till you get down to the white heart of the flower. Cut the stem off the end. Save all the tiny flowerettes from each leaf and cut them in half to save for mixig in salad. use the purple leaves for the salad 'bowls'. Makes a perfect presentation for guest! Cut the whiter part of the flower in small strips, can cut in rounds or length wise and then in half. Place all cuttings in a bowl of lemon or lime juice and let set for an hour at least. Can set longer. Dice a mango and cucumber too. (you can dice a carrot, cabbage or onion as well) Set all aside in a large mixing bowl.
A large bunch of fresh basil
4 cloves garlic
Nutritional yeast (1/4 cup)
2 large lemons
1/4 cup olive oil
Put all ingredients in a Vitamix or blender and blend very well.
Squeeze all liquid from the soaked banana flower and place banana flower into other diced fruits & /or vegetables and toss well. Place mixture inside banana leaves and top with freshly made pesto! Viola! The best RAW Salad mixture ever!
Sauteed Banana Flower and Black Bean Pasta
Cut and soak banana flower as directed above
Boil black bean pasta till almost tender. Drain well.
Dice a whole bulb of garlic cloves
Slice a small onion.
Put onion, garlic and banana flower in a well oiled skillet and sautee for about 8 to 10 minutes. Add black bean pasta and sautee for another 5 minutes. Dish onto plates and top with olive oil, salt and cracked black pepper. Viola! again , the most nourishing and filling meal ever!
