  • Is a 3 step program that is simple to follow and can be completed even by very busy people
  • Contains only recipes with ingredients that can be found anywhere
  • Only offers recipes that can be made simply and quickly – with just a blender
  • Has a huge Q/A section plus lots of relevant and helpful information on raw foods
  • Comes with my full support

Straight Talk About Earth 4 Energy http://healingvibes.com/news/bookreviews/straight-talk-about-earth-4-energy/ http://healingvibes.com/news/bookreviews/straight-talk-about-earth-4-energy/#respond Fri, 06 May 2011 11:30:55 +0000 http://healingvibes.com/?p=1464 Hey, Mark Ament here.

And you’re reading my uncensored review of what I really thought about Earth 4 Energy.

Note that this is a review. If you’re looking for the official Earth 4 Energy website, then click here: Earth 4 Energy

Why am I writing this? Well, when I was thinking of buying Earth 4 Energy, there weren’t many real reviews around.

So, I thought I’d do a quick write-up to help any of you who are in the same position I was.

But be warned, I’ll be going into the good and the bad points of Earth 4 Energy, so if that’s not something you want to read, you might may as well leave now.

My first impressions of Earth 4 Energy:

earth4energy review

Even before the disaster in 2011 at Fukishima, I was committed to solar and wind power.   They both make so much sense for both the short and long term.    After the events at Fukishima it just became clearer to me that we really need to focus on alternative energy sources.   Since most governments worldwide seem to care more about big companies like General Electric (who make nuclear power plants) than alternative energy, it’s really in our hands as individuals to change to free safe energy.

Now it’s true that solar energy has been around for years.   Back in 2003 I almost had my house outfitted with solar panels.   The problem was that the price tag was WAY too high at almost $15,000.   It would have taken about 20 years to pay for itself at that rate.

That’s where a program like Earth4Energy comes in.

What is Earth 4 Energy:

These days the price of solar energy panels has dropped some and the quality of them has improved.   But also, the availability of the materials needed to create real solar energy for your own home has increased tremendously over the past 10 years.

I’ve looked into several of the major “Do It Yourself” solar panel building plans and have found that Earth 4 Energy to be the best out there.    The company really knows its stuff about building wind mills and solar systems for a fraction of what it would cost to buy them.

And Earth 4 Energy also really knows how to deliver the information in a useable and easy to understand way – with videos and plans that give you a step by step process to walk through.

What’s in The Earth 4 Energy Program:

The program contains six parts that promise to help you go from zero to having your own wind and/or solar power generating system for thousands of dollars less than you’d pay for a professional install. Here are the parts:

  1. Complete introduction to solar power – what it is, where the technology has come from, how to get the most out of it.
  2. How to build solar panels – Step by Step video and text instructions on where to get the materials and how to put them together to make your own effective solar panels.  These are truly easy to follow.
  3. Getting the most out of your solar panels – how to install them, how to get government tax credits for them, how to calculate your solar needs and more.
  4. Complete video construction and installation series
  5. Plans for building wind turbines – this includes all the details for making a windmill from parts from your local hardware store for under $200.
  6. Complete solar and wind power video education series – explaining and demonstrating various options and uses depending on climate, location etc.

Who would benefit from purchasing Earth 4 Energy:

Anyone interested in generating their own power for use in their current or future home should really take advantage of this information. The plans and descriptions are very complete and will help most anyone produce near professional quality solar panels and/or windmills on the cheap.

If your a person who gets satisfaction from independence and doing things yourself the right way, you’ll love the Earth4Energy program.

What I think was left out of Earth 4 Energy:

I have to say that this is a very complete program.   I didn’t see any holes in it.   Following the instructions the build is pretty easy for both the solar and wind generators.    I suppose they could have included a section on geothermal wells just to round out the alternative energy presentation, but that’s a pretty minor omission in my opinion.

How quickly Earth 4 Energy can help someone:

With just a few hundred dollars and 5-6 hours you can build your first solar panels and wind mills.   You could have your solar power up and running within a week or so after absorbing and taking action on the information presented in Earth4Energy.     That’s pretty quick.   And of course the quicker you get going the quicker you start saving money.

Still it’s not just saving money that counts.   It’s also being independent of the municipal power grid.   If something happens to the standard power supply you and your family are still covered with your Self Made power generators.

Proof that Earth 4 Energy really works:

Earth4Energy is the best selling program of its kind.   It has helped over 10,000 people create their own solar panels and windmills.   The testimonials are very positive.   I won’t go into all of them here, so if you’d like to see them just click here.

Negatives about Earth 4 Energy:

The only thing I might say in this regard is that the program contains a lot of information.   You’ll have to have some time to sit down and go through it.   For me that’s not a problem, but if you are really short on time this program might not be for you.

Additional skills or tools needed to get the most out of Earth 4 Energy:

One thing I liked is that the creation of solar panels as described in Earth4 Energy doesn’t require a great deal of technical know how.    You do need some basic hand tools – hammers, saws, etc.  And it’s helpful to have a basic knowledge of construction.

If that’s not something you have, my advice is to call some friends or family who can help you.   You might even have some neighbors who are good at that kind of thing.

My final words about Earth 4 Energy:earth 4 energy review

One other thing I haven’t mentioned yet about this program is that it comes with a rock solid 60 day money back guarantee. You can pick up a copy today and review it for two full months.   Even on the 59th day you can decide that it’s not for you and get a full refund immediately.   That’s a really good deal.

Interestingly, though, Earth4Energy has an extremely low return rate. That’s simply because the program works and truly helps people save money and become independent of power companies by showing them how to build and install solar panels as well as windmills.

I give the program a high recommendation and am very happy to have found it myself.

Natural Remedies for Gout http://healingvibes.com/news/naturalremedies/natural-remedies-for-gout/ http://healingvibes.com/news/naturalremedies/natural-remedies-for-gout/#respond Mon, 02 May 2011 17:00:13 +0000 http://healingvibes.com/?p=1452 As someone dedicated to natural health and healing, I’ve seen a lot of so called natural remedies for gout promoted and advertised over the years.    Some of them are total garbage, others work some of the time for some people and a few are really good.  In this article I’m going to summarize these remedies and give you a clear direction on where to get relief from gout.

What Is Gout?

A gout attack is caused when uric acid reaches such high concentration in the blood that it precipitates as monosodium urate crystals which then become deposited in a joint, often causing severe and widespread pain and inflammation in that joint and the area surrounding it.  Often gout is localized in the joints of the toes and fingers since they are furthest from the heart.

In addition to causing pain, gout can lead to other conditions including high blood pressure, tophi and kidney stones.

Traditional Treatments for Gout

If you are diagnosed with gout by your doctor, most likely he or she will prescribe you an anti inflammatory drug to natural remedies for gouthelp reduce your pain.   Most often these are some type of NSAID and/or oral colchicine.   The problem with these drugs is that they only mask the symptoms of the discomfort caused by gout and don’t treat the causes.   They also carry some serious side effect for some people including severe cramping and nausea.   Since gout is treatable naturally, there are better approaches than taking the first thing the doctor prescribes.

Natural Remedies for Gout #1

Prevention through diet is something that you are going to need to look at carefully.   Now this won’t eliminate the pain caused by gout right away, but in the long run it will help you get better.   What you need to do is avoid any sort of food that causes uric acid to form.    There are many such foods… the worst are:

  • Excessive amounts of fatty red meat
  • Fish roe, scallops and shellfish Beans, lentils and peas
  • Alcohol

Now, this is a long term approach that will help you avoid gout in the future, but what about right now?

Natural  Remedies for Gout #2

Who would have ever thought that limiting the painful effects of your gout could be as simple as eating more fruit? Well, believe it or not, it’s true. Studies have shown that—because of their particular vitamin, nutrient and antioxidant properties—a variety of fruits and vegetables can have a dramatic affect on your health and well-being. In fact, studies have demonstrated that a deficiency in vitamins such as A, B5 and E are serious factors that can lead to the formation and advancement of gout symptoms.

There are many recommended fruits and vegetables that you can take advantage of.   A partial list includes:

  • cherries (and cherry juice*)
  • celery (and celery juice)
  • strawberries
  • avocados
  • maca
  • blueberries
  • grapes

You can get a full list in this amazing Gout Remedy Report

Natural Remedies For Gout #3

Another popular remedy for immediate pain relief of gout is to use a solution made from baking soda and water to help dissolve the uric acid in your joints quickly.    Even if you choose to use a NSAID drug, baking soda may help it perform better and more immediately.

This baking soda remedy is the closest thing to getting instant pain relief from gout naturally that I’ve ever com across. Joe Barton gives full details and instructions for this remedy in his book that you can see here.

Natural Remedies for Gout #4

For thousands of years, herbs have been used by traditional peoples around the world. Long known for their ability to help in the healing process for everything that ails us, herbs have more recently gained popular support by the medical establishment. Current scientific research is showing what apothecaries and holistic medicine has known for a long time: herbs really do work!

Here’s  a list of some herbs that may be helpful in addressing the signs and symptoms of gout.

  • Alfalfa
  • Burdock root
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Celery Seeds
  • Garlic
  • Hyssop
  • Juniper
  • Parsley
  • Saffron
  • Yarrow

Natural Remedies for Gout #5

This last one is not so much a remedy as a daily health practice that  will help reverse gout permanently.   It’s simple and involves drinking enough pure fresh water every day.

Believe it or not, water can greatly assist in the prevention of the formation of uric acid crystals. In addition, it can help your body to more effectively eliminate the crystals once they have formed.  Water is essential to proper functioning of your entire body. When  you keep yourself well-hydrated, you assure yourself the best chance to achieve and maintain maximum health.  For gout sufferers, it is critical that you drink 10 to 12 eight-ounce glasses of water every day. If you can secure alkaline water with a pH of greater than 7, you will greatly help your body’s ability to flush uric acid crystals and help your body, especially your kidneys, do the best job it can for you.

Final Word On Natural Remedies For Gout

The first thing to emphasize is that YES you can treat gout naturally.  In fact, it’s the best way to treat it since you won’t have to deal with the side effects of drugs that merely mask the symptoms of gout anyway.     All of the remedies here are detailed and explained fully in one of the best gout resources I’ve ever seen.

If I was suffering from gout, I’d head over to Joe Barton’s site and pick up a copy right away.   It’s something you won’t regret.

Free Numerology Calculator – An Honest Review Of Blair Gorman’s Numerology.com http://healingvibes.com/healingarticles/free-numerology-calculator/ http://healingvibes.com/healingarticles/free-numerology-calculator/#respond Mon, 11 Apr 2011 15:57:43 +0000 http://healingvibes.com/?p=1441 I wanted to share with you today my thoughts on where to find the best  Free Numerology Calculator

I’m writing this because a few months back, when I was looking into numerology and getting my chart done, there wasn’t a lot of very clear information around.   In fact, what I discovered mostly was a really poor quality free numerology calculator that didn’t help me at all.

So, I thought I’d do a quick write-up to help you save some time.

What’s A Free Numerology Calculator?:

Numerology is a practice that stretches back 1000s of years in a variety of traditions and cultures.     Although there are many branches and forms of the practice, the main purpose for anyone getting a numerology reading is to understand him or herself better.

That’s exactly what a good numerology session or calculator should be able to do:  give you some very precise and relevant facts about things like:

  • What your life purpose is
  • What kind of work suits you
  • How to thrive in relationships
  • How other people tend to perceive you

What I Found First in Terms of A Quality Free Numerology Calculator

As I was searching for numerology readings and calculators, I ran across several websites that looked promising at first.     I plugged my birth date and full name into the software at several of them to see what free numerology calculatorcame back.    Overall, the results were really disappointing.     Most of them read like they had been spit out by a computer or cut and pasted from various sources.    And honestly, none of them were very helpful.

I was about to give up, when I asked a friend about Numerology.   She basically said that,  although a software can add up your numerology, it can never really give you an accurate interpretation.   It takes a well trained human to do that.

Where I found The Best Free Numerology Calculator:

My friend recommended that I try a free reading from an actual human.   She sent me to Blair Gorman’s Numerology Website to get one.   I entered my details and then waited for Blair’s response.  The next day, I received an email from Blair that contained a thorough reading and interpretation of my own numerology.

What’s Included in Blair Gorman’s Free Numerology Calculator:

I received all of the following in her Free reading – note that the reading was extensive – at least 10 pages.   Pretty cool for a free numerology calculator:

  1. My Life Path Number – this explained a lot to me about what my higher purpose is.  I have to say that this was very helpful.
  2. My Expression Number – this one describes natural talents that I have and how to best access them and get the most out of them.   Some of it I knew before, but there were a couple of points that really helped.
  3. My Soul Urge or Heart’s Desire Number – this number relates to what I want to be, do and have in this lifetime.

Who would benefit from getting this Free Numerology Calculator:

If you’re someone who wants to most out of life and who is searching for real information that can support you to fulfill your destiny, then I’d say that Gorman’s free numerology calculator report is a great place to start. The information is personalized – even in this free reading and it’s obvious that Blair Gorman cares about providing you with the most helpful and relevant details possible.

In addition, I was impressed that thousands of people (several of them well known) have used this free service to improve their own lives.

How quickly Free Numerology Calculator can help someone:

I have to say that even after reading my report just once, I already started thinking differently and focusing my energy on things that I had wanted to do, but had been putting off.

If you take the information in the free numerology calculator  to heart and use it, it can change your life quickly.

Additional skills or tools needed to get the most out of Free Numerology Calculator:

There’s really nothing else major that you need to know or do in order to benefit from this great service.     The only requirements are that you know your birth date (not the time, just the day, month and year) and your full name.  That’s it really.   Also, it helps if you have a sense of adventure and an open mind, but I suppose those aren’t necessary either.

My final words about Free Numerology Calculator:

Hey, this reading is at absolutely no cost. And it’s 1000 times better than the software I tried out.   I mean you get a reading from an actual person and not a machine.   That’s  a great deal and great way to get started with numerology.

There’s nothing to lose and a lot to gain.   I can give Blair Gorman’s Free Numerology Calculator and Report my highest recommendation.

Natural Iodine Supplements and Iodine Rich Foods http://healingvibes.com/news/nutrition/natural-iodine-supplements-and-iodine-rich-foods/ http://healingvibes.com/news/nutrition/natural-iodine-supplements-and-iodine-rich-foods/#comments Tue, 05 Apr 2011 10:12:03 +0000 http://healingvibes.com/?p=1427 What Is Iodine?

Iodine is a relatively rare element of the earth’s crust (ranking 47th in abundance).     The fact that most soils contain very little iodine has led to widespread deficiencies in both human and animal populations.   Iodine, however, is more concentrated in seawater and vegetables that grow in seawater. 

What Does Iodine Do For Us?iodine supplement

The main biological role of iodine in the body is to support the functioning of the thyroid gland and thyroid hormones. The thyroid is crucial in regulating that basal metabolic rate, or the rate at which the body digests and metabolizes nutrients from foods.    Without this function important cellular activity is decreased and/or stopped.

Major deficiencies of iodine have been shown to cause goiters (enlargement of the thyroid gland) as well as mental retardation.    A lack of iodine is also suspected in the formation of certain kinds of cancers, including breast cancer and stomach cancer.

Signs That You May Need More Iodine

There are several indicators that you may need to supplement your iodine intake.   If you experience any of the following you may want to get yourself checkout out for Iodine.    This can be done by any good natural health care professional or by using a simple at home test.

  • Unexplainable weight gain (not due to a change in diet or lifestyle)
  • Sudden onset of depression
  • Fatigue or chronic fatigue
  • Weakness of muscles

What Are The Recommended Daily Intakes for Iodine?

Iodine should not be taken in excess.   If you take too much it can be toxic – although getting too much through food sources is probably unlikely.      For this reason I’m including both the recommended minimum and maximum daily allowances for iodine here.

In 2000, the Institute of Medicine at the National Academy of Sciences developed new Dietary Reference Intakes for iodine. Adequate Intakes were established for children up to one year old, and Recommended Dietary Allowances were determined for all people over one year old.

mcg = microgram.  1 mcg is equivalent to 1/1000 of a milligram or one one millionth (1/1,000,000) of a gram.

  • 0-6 months: 110 mcg
  • 7-12 months: 130 mcg
  • 1-8 years: 90 mcg
  • Boys 9-13 years: 120 mcg
  • Girls 9-13 years: 120 mcg
  • Boys 14-18 years: 150 mcg
  • Girls 14-18 years: 150 mcg
  • Men 19 years and older: 150 mcg
  • Women 19 years and older: 150 mcg
  • Pregnant women 14 years and older: 220 mcg
  • Lactating women 14 years and older: 290 mcg

In an attempt to prevent  iodine toxicity, the Institute of Medicine established the following Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (UL) for iodine:

  • 1-3 years: 900 mcg
  • 4-8 years: 300 mcg
  • 9-13 years: 600 mcg
  • 14-18 years: 900 mcg
  • 19 years and older: 1,100 mcg
  • Pregnant women 14-18 years: 900 mcg
  • Pregnant women 19 years and older: 1,100 mcg
  • Lactating women 14-18 years: 900 mcg
  • Lactating women 19 years and older: 1,100 mcg

What Are The Best Natural Iodine Supplements and Iodine Rich Foods?

The best naturally occurring sources of iodine are found in sea vegetables.   Milk and dairy products are also sometimes mentioned as good sources.   But this only applies if the cows in question have been fed iodine supplements.   This is usually the case in the U.S. and other western countries, but not necessarily.  It’s a good idea to find out if you plan to use dairy products for iodine.   High quality multivitamins may also contain proper levels of iodine.

Iodine Rich Foods

Other Helpful Tips About Getting The Most Out of Iodine

A few other tips when it comes to iodine.   If you think you have an iodine deficiency or a thyroid that is not fully functioning you should avoid these foods that can interfere with the absorption of iodine:

  • cauliflower
  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • mustard
  • tapioca
  • corn

There are two forms of iodine: iodine 127 (safe, natural dietary iodine) and iodine 131 (a harmful, radioactive byproduct of nuclear energy). Your body absorbs and retains any kind of iodine to which it is exposed. Most of it is deposited in your thyroid gland or breast tissues. These are the two places that use the highest amounts of iodine.

If you spend time in a spa or hot tub, be aware that using chloride or bromide to kill bacteria can also lower your iodine levels.    Also know that bromine is an ingredient in pesticides and eating foods sprayed with it can have the same effect.     Eat organic!

Herbs such as Maca or Ginseng are well know adaptogens – substances that help normalize various bodily functions – adapting to what your body needs in a given moment.     Iodine also appears to have the same effect and may just be the ultimate adaptogen.

Finally – Iodine Supplements and Radiation

You may have heard about taking iodine tablets as protection against radioactive iodine 131.    These are meant to prevent you thyroid gland from uptaking iodine 131 during  a fallout situation and thereby prevent thyroid cancer.       Local authorities should advise residents if this is necessary.

And still using the information here you can choose to keep your body’s level of iodine at health promoting  levels using natural iodine supplements and iodine rich foods.  It’s a great long term health strategy.

Using Raw Foods To Treat Allergies http://healingvibes.com/news/naturalremedies/using-raw-foods-to-treat-allergies/ http://healingvibes.com/news/naturalremedies/using-raw-foods-to-treat-allergies/#comments Tue, 15 Mar 2011 20:47:00 +0000 http://healingvibes.com/?p=1415 Using Raw Foods To Treat Allergies

One of the things that really worked for me to improve my allergies was to start eating a diet based on raw foods.   Since being on 90% raw food I’ve noticed that my sensitivity to dust, weeds and pollens is much less than it used to be.

The top allergy causing foods are (in order):

  • Milk and other dairy products
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts and tree nuts
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Soy
  • Wheat (especially processed wheat)

In addition to eating a high percentage of fresh fruits and vegetables, taking the following steps will also help to reduce allergies.

  1. Replace all dairy products with nut milks, coconut yogurt and nut cheeses.  If you have allergies to nuts, then use avocados and cold pressed oils.
  2. Replace wheat products with dehydrated seed crackers, cookies and breads.
  3. Eliminate processed sugar. This includes high fructose corn syrup, which is highly toxic.  Read labels – even if it says “organic.”  Learn to make your own condiments such as ketchup, mustard and mayo.
  4. Eat Organic. Limit exposure to pesticides and chemical fertilizers.  This is particularly important for children.  If you can’t get organic make sure to wash all vegetables and fruits and peel fruits with thin skins such as apples.  This is a list of non-organic foods with the most and least pesticides

Foods With Most Pesticides:

  • Peachesraw food allergies
  • Apples
  • Sweet bell peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
