When Pleasure Outweighs the Pain…


Almost every choice we make in life is motivated by one of two powerful forces….the desire for pleasure and the fear of pain.  Although we say that we don’t want to feel pain if we can help it,  the prevailing force for many is the desire for pleasure regardless of the pain that comes with it.  This explains a lot when it comes to health and wellness.


How many times have I heard “there is no way I’m giving up my sodas” even when I’ve had the opportunity to scientifically demonstrate the dangers associated with their habit?   It doesn’t seem to matter that there will be a long-term price to pay or that their health will eventually be lost because of it.  They’re living for the moment and they chose pleasure over pain almost every time.  Undoubtedly they are addicted to their pleasure (and their sodas).

How many times have I heard “I’m not giving up the convenience of bottled water even when I’ve had the opportunity to scientifically demonstrate the dangers associated with the pleasure that comes with their need for convenience?  It doesn’t seem to matter that there will be a long-term price to pay or that their health will eventually surrender because of it.  They are living in the “fast lane” and they choose the pleasure of convenience over the pain almost every time….regardless of the consequences to their health or weight (and the environment.)

The next generation is suffering because of the pleasure choices we continue to make – exposure to radiation, pesticides, GMO’s, BPA, Aspartame, etc., are just a few of the things that are causing a lot of pain for the next generation.  Whether you can see it or feel it yet is not relevant.…you (and your family) will ultimately pay the price for your pleasure-driven health decisions.  When things like autism, arthritis, kidney disease or cancer strike your family don’t say I didn’t warn you.

There is an old saying that goes like this. – “no pain…no gain”.  Nothing could be truer when it comes to making wise decisions about your health.

Isn’t it time you set aside your pleasures to protect your health and the health of your family for generations to come?

  • You might miss the pleasure you get from a bottle of soda but you’ll be avoiding pain later on and your body will thank you for it!
  • You may suffer with a little inconvenience by refilling your water bottle with water that’s actually GOOD for you,  but you’ll get used to it eventually and your body will thank you for it!
  • You might feel the pain of having to read food labels and look up all of those words you don’t understand but you’ll learn in time and your body will thank you for it!

Will you continue to chose your reckless pleasure over the painful consequences and roll-the-dice on your health or are you ready for a little pain that comes with healthy change?

To Poo or Not to Poo? That is the Question!

kid on pottyThe longer I live the more amazed I am by human nature.  You’re probably reading this post out of curiosity and you’re wondering…is she REALLY talking about poo?  You bet I am!  How silly that so many people are embarrassed to talk about some of the basic human functions.  It’s no wonder we have a health crisis in America!

I joined the forces of wellness as an environmental advocate in those areas that impact our health a few years ago and I hear about physical challenges that would curl your toes.  How strange that some believe that their “condition” is normal!   For instance, I’m amazed at how few people poo every day.  Some poo once a week…some every two weeks.  I’ve even had someone tell me that they poo once a month.  What????  How can people possibly believe that this is normal?  They are in crisis and they have no clue. Eventually they fold and will consume some potent “drain cleaner” laxative.  Once they “go” they start the toxic cycle all over again never looking for the root cause of the problem.  They have  no idea how they are setting themselves up for a chronic problem later on because of their serious state of dehydration.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news BUT this isn’t anywhere close to being normal or healthy.

Did you know that if you’re dehydrated, the first place the body draws fluids from for survival is the colon?  Hence, constipation.  It isn’t as complicated as you want to make it.  YOU NEED WATER and LOTS of it.  Maybe you think you don’t like water (you haven’t tried mine!) and you refuse to give up your “drink of choice”  for anything but you’re paying a big price for that choice.  Maybe you think water is “just water” but if that’s the case; you haven’t done your research into what my family drinks. Believe me…water is NOT just water.  You may excuse your challenges and say that this is “just the way” you are but you need to stop lying to yourself before it’s too late!

Water is THE MOST IMPORTANT NUTRIENT for the human body and the most overlooked solution on the planet.  Your body is comprised of 70-75% water – you’re 90% water at birth and most people are around 40% water at death.  God hardwired you to need water but the water He designed you to benefit from can only be found in just a few places of the world so people like me have taken the bull-by-the-horns – we use technology to make a mirror image of what He makes naturally.

Did you know that your body is designed to heal on it’s own when you give it what it needs?  You don’t believe that?  Consider the last cut you had or a broken bone and after you think about the amazing healing you witnessed; take it a step further and consider that your body can and WILL do battle on it’s own but you have to give it a little help and healthy water is non-negotiable.   Even modern science and mainstream protocols for cancer rely on God’s design…chemotherapy is designed to kill as many cells as possible in hopes that the bad ones go away and stay away when the NEW CELLS are produced the way God designs them to be…over and over and over again.  With that in mind some of us know that if we take care of the root problems…if we give our body what it needs to have a strong immune system and a fighting chance…we can prevent and/or battle just about anything.  Thank you, God!

Dr. Hiromi Shinya, the inventor of the endoscopy, the leading colon specialist in the world and best selling author of The Enzyme Factor, will be the first to tell you that your COLON needs water for lots of reasons and that if you DRINK the water Dr. Shinya recommends; you are assured to have a healthier colon (and overall better health because of it)!  In fact, Dr. Shinya says that people who follow his instructions with diet AND LOTS OF HEALTHY WATER never see a re-occurrence of cancer.  He’s performed approximately 400,000 colonoscopies so that’s saying a whole lot!   If that doesn’t get your attention; I’m not sure anything will.

Reach out to me for details and after I make a few bad jokes about colons; I’ll get you headed in the right direction…guaranteed.

Withholding Fluids From Young Children…Child Abuse or School Compliance?

The Ultimate Price for Bathroom Use

Kids Have to “Pay” to Use the Bathroom in School?


I’ve always thought that eliminating waste was a human necessity and not an earned privilege; but it looks like schools across America have a different idea. 

Texas – A second-grade teacher charges good-behavior “bucks” for bathroom visits.  Consequently a seven-year-old boy wet his pants in class because he hadn’t accumulated enough good behavior credits to secure a trip to the bathroom.

Chicago – School officials at a public elementary school in Chicago are ordering teachers to sign students up for “designated restroom times” when entire, overcrowded classes of little kids must use the bathroom each day.  The rationale for the “pee policy” is to improve the school’s standardized test results.

California – The mother of a 7-year-old Irving elementary school student says her son wet his pants in class after his teacher refused to let him use the restroom because the honor roll student didn’t have enough “Bonus Bucks” for a potty break.

NEWS FLASH: A ‘normal’ urination rate (of a hydrated human) is eight to 10 times a day.  When nature calls it’s time to go!  School schedules don’t have a whole lot to do with anything when it comes to bodily function.  Sorry teachers, you would NEVER have that much control over my kids!

I’m shocked when I coach people on the importance of efficient hydration for health and they complain that they can’t drink a lot of water because (if they do) they’d have to “live in the toilet”.  Are we so busy that using the toilet has become nothing more than a nuisance?  Apparently so.  Just ask our school teachers!   From their standpoint, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to be bothered with unnecessary things like potty breaks!

WARNING:  The longer you hold your urine the likelier it is that the bladder will become a breeding ground for bacteria to grow.  Bacteria can lead to infections which can spread to kidneys and cause greater damage to the body over all.  Holding your urine is NOT a good thing.  Withholding fluids is far worse.

Dehydration is the leading cause of many chronic conditions and water is the key to all life (and health).  If you want your kid to do their best in school then HYDRATE THEM!  How can a dehydrated brain function at its maximum potential?   Just keep in mind that what goes in MUST come out.  You’ll have to fight for potty breaks if you have a hydrated kid.

In order to avoid the potty problem (and the potential for bullying over an “accident”) countless parents are now withholding fluids from their little ones.  I don’t know what’s worse ; schools that think that using the bathroom is an earned privilege or parents that would rather have a dehydrated child than to fight the schools for their basic human rights.  Hmm…

It’s no wonder we have a health crisis in America…

M.I.T. Understands Electrically Charged Water! What’s Your Problem?

MIT News:

 “Droplets get a charge out of jumping!  Condensation on a metal plate leads to formation of droplets that carry an electric charge”

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) discovered that small water droplets that collect on a superhydrophobic surface and “jump” from it actually possess an electric charge.  In this case the Superhydrophobic surface was metal however, these surfaces  are simply explained as water-resistant surfaces.  Some plant leaves and butterfly wings are good examples of “natural” superhydophic surfaces.

Described as an “unexpected finding,” the ability of the water droplets to carry an electric charge lead these scientists to believe that there may be new ways to harness power using electrically charged water.

“We found that when these droplets jump, through analysis of high-speed video, we saw that they repel one another midflight,” Miljkovic said. “Previous studies have shown no such effect. When we first saw that, we were intrigued.”

MIT is always ahead of the curve.  It is no secret that they use electrically charged water (aka ionized water) in their conference center to replace harmful cleaning chemicals.  The system that they use to modify the pH of their source water also produces high alkaline drinking water for their staff.   If anybody understands the power of restructured, electrified water it’s MIT!

If the ionized water skeptics out there want to argue with MIT, knock your socks off!   I’m happy drinking my electrically charged water in the comfort of my own home and watching MIT put the science behind the amazing health benefits that I’ve been seeing for a long time.

Water Shortages? You Better Believe it! What Are You Going to do About it?

kennedy quote

Two billion people across the globe don’t have fresh water and yet; water is the source of all life.   In places like Mexico City, people spend as much as 30% of their annual income buying enough water just to keep them alive. Will America be next?

Unfortunately, most Americans don’t give water a second thought.  As long as we can turn on the tap and clear water comes out we believe all is well with the world.  We spend $640 per year per person (on the average) buying bottled water that we’ve convinced ourselves is healthy in spite of the health warnings.  When will American’s get off of their high-horse and stop wasting water as if there is no end?

What’s The Problem?

There are two major problems with our water.  First and foremost, there is only so much of it to go around.  In fact, if we didn’t recycle sewage to be used as tap water America would already be “tapped out” of water.  To further compound our problem, each time you purchase commercially bottled water you’re contributing to the depletion of our water supply.  Did you know that it takes 5 liters of water to produce a 1 liter bottle of water?  With only so much of it to go around, allowing companies (like Nestle,  Coke and Pepsi) to tap our water resources only to resell water back to us makes absolutely no sense.  It’s time to wake up and trade your desire for convenience for a good dose of common sense!

What Do The Experts Say?

Our second problem with water is health.  In Reducing Environmental Risk of Cancer the National Institute of Health (NIH) states that we need to work with our tap water source (making it as healthy as possible) instead of opting for bottled water in order to reduce the risk of cancer.  There are numerous health risks associated with the consumption of  bottled water.  In addition to being stored in plastics that are known to cause cancer and disrupt hormones, most bottled water is reverse osmosis water that has been cleared of most chemicals and robbed of all vital minerals.  Water must be naturally laced with minerals to be beneficial to the human body.  Without minerals, water can’t conduct the electrical impulses necessary for health and functionality.  A lot of our health problems can be directly attributed  to the water we’re drinking!

So…we’re spending approximately $6.00 a gallon on water that is hazardous to our health and detrimental to our water supply.  Does that make any sense to you?  Our arrogance and our willingness to waste is shameful.  Maybe we need to spend a week or two in Mexico City to gain a better understanding of the value of water?

Nobel Prize Worthy!

I may not have all of the answers but I definitely have the answer for our water problems.  In fact, my answer should be Nobel Prize worthy based on Kennedy’s definition.  I don’t contribute to water waste nor do I throw hard-earned money at water in plastic bottles that I know is bad for me.  I follow the advice of NIH.  I restructure my tap water to return it to the way it was before we managed to mess things up.  I ionize my water with the very best equipment money can buy.  My health is worth it….my family is worth it and (to me)  the planet is worth it.  No more tap water laced with chemicals or $6.00 a gallon in plastic containers.

As a result of changing my water source I sleep better at night.  Partly because I’m being socially responsible and partly because I’m (finally) giving my body the water that it’s been craving all along.

When are you going to do your part to resolve our water problems?

Remember the Movie “Cocoon”? Lots of Lessons There!


You remember the movie…senior citizens sneaking into a vacant house in their neighborhood to swim in the pool.   Then one day they noticed that they had stumbled upon their own fountain of youth.  They felt strong..young..energized.  They didn’t want to ruin a good thing by sharing their “secret” so they only told the people closest to them about this amazing water with “healing powers”.    Surprisingly not everybody responded the same way; even though they were eye-witness to significant physical changes and improved health and energy in their friends!


  • Some refused to try the water  because they thought that the idea was ridiculous…after all “water is just water”
  • Some followed because they saw first-hand the results so they believed what their friends told them
  • Others never heard about it because nobody told them

What would you do if you found a fountain of youth?  Would you think it was ridiculous or would you believe it if you saw it with your own eyes?

I can relate to this story.  I’m not sneaking in to vacant homes for a swim in the pool BUT I have found my own fountain of youth (with even more powerful attributes than the “healing powers” of the water of Lourdes, France)  and I’m telling everybody about it.  Its amazing what happens to the body when you give it the PERFECT water for health and longevity.

 What you do with this information is up to you.  You can believe that its “ridiculous” because you think that “water is just water” OR you can follow me because of proven results. Its your call.

I Used to be a “Free Radical” – Now They Are My Enemy!

free-radicalsI lived a worry-free life for a very long time.  I didn’t give a second thought to organic eating or a wellness protocol.  In fact, I made jokes about both.   It wouldn’t have occurred to me that “oxidative stress” had anything to do with the human body.  I was a “free radical” with good health and not a care in the world.   Then something strange happened….I woke up when I started losing my health.  I’m fortunate that it didn’t take a major health crisis to jar me awake!    When I opened my eyes (and mind) I learned that there are HUGE health issues all around me that have little to do with age and everything to do with lifestyle and environmental exposure!

I learned that the cancer rate in America is 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females and that it is no respecter of age.  As the mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and the grandmother to a 22 month old grandson the odds are too scary to ponder.  Cancer is wreaking havoc on our world and, from the outside looking in, it appears like we’re much more focused on a C U R E than we are about prevention.  Of course, that could just be the “free radical” in me speaking up!

I learned that the rate of autism is off-the-charts striking 1 in every 50 children across America.  As a military mom I am extremely troubled by the fact that these rates are HIGHER on military bases!   Hmm…looks like an environmental problem to me!   There goes that “free radical” spirit again!

I learned that “Free Radicals” were not a good thing and that if I didn’t do something to make changes in my own life, and lead by example for the next generation(s),  these free radicals could literally be the  slow death of us all.

I learned that just by changing my water I could win the battle against free radicals.  Now I drink water that has anti-oxidation properties that are 700,000 times more powerful than a glass of orange juice.  Needless to say, I drink as much as I can and I’m sure that my family does the same.  Changing our water has been the single most positive step we’ve taken in our battle for wellness.  That was easy!  After all, we’re all drinking water anyway…it only makes sense to drink water that fights free radicals!

It’s painful to wake up and to assume responsibility BUT now I’m FREE to be RADICAL about our current health crisis and, in keeping with the personality of my younger years, I intend to be bold in the fight.  So…if I step on your toes from time-to-time it’s probably best to just push the delete button.  I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going to stop fighting for the next generation.  After all, I have a responsibility to “save” them from other “free radicals” like me too clueless to speak the truth.

Got Coke, Sprite, Bottled Tap Water or M I L K? Where Does The Madness End?


Coca Cola just announced that it will begin selling a “premium-priced, protein-boosted milk” under its Fairlife label. It will be available nationally next month when their advertising blitz begins. Will you be a victim of good marketing and compelling advertising?  Maybe so!

Bloomberg reports the following:

At a recent conference announcing Fairlife, Sandy Douglas, the president of Coca-Cola North America, said the company expects the premium milk to “rain money” following extensive marketing efforts (which, so far, include a website with pin-up style images of women wearing liquid milk dresses).

Coke says the milk (to be priced in the $4.00 per half-gallon range) will be “cold-filtered so that it has 50% more protein, 50% less sugar and 30% more calcium than conventional milk”.  It will also be promoted as lactose-free and will be displayed in the dairy case right along with all of the other milk products.  Rest assured, there isn’t a cow on the planet capable of producing “milk” as defined by Coca-Cola.  So…what is it?

So far Coca-Cola has managed to convince millions and millions of people year-after-year that Coke is a good hydration option when you don’t feel like drinking water.  When Coca-Cola saw soda sales slipping they tuned-in to the world’s growing interest in water and they brilliantly put a spin on their bottled tap water by calling it “purified” and healthy.  So why would we be surprised that Coke is rolling out an engineered “milk” and promoting it as a viable option as a “dairy” products?  Anything to make a dollar.

This move to capture the milk market comes as carbonated drink sales continue to decline in the U.S.  The good news is that we’re having an impact on soda sales as we preach about the consequences to our health.  The bad news is that companies like Coca-Cola have no limits on the falsehoods that they’ll promote just to hustle products to clueless and careless consumers.

It’s time to get back to basics and reconsider all beverages.  Your body is 70% water and it needs lots of healthy water to function optimally…not Coca-Cola, Sprite or artificial “milk”.

You won’t find healthy water in your tap.

You won’t find healthy water in a plastic bottle.

You won’t find healthy water in your refrigerator water dispenser or through a carbon filter pitcher.

You’ll find healthy water when you make the decision to produce it yourself using a quality ionizer.  No more parasites, no more pharmaceuticals, no more BPA, no more chemicals, no more oxidative water.  Just pure, ionized, alkalized, electrically charged water.  You know, the way water was in the olden days before we messed things up.  What a novel concept!
