Welcome Back Dad!

As I sit here and write this I can't help but smile!

In some of my earlier posts I've talked briefly about my 63 yr. old father whose been struggling over the last year or so with diabetes, severe psoriosis and auto-immune disorder.

Now I should tell you that my father and I haven't always been that close. You see.....I was a real ass for a kid, and I went on into adult hood pretty much the same. Matter of fact it wasn't until I reached my early thirties that I made some pretty serious changes in my life, and began to realize that I owed my father a great deal!

It was at that time that our relationship really began to turn around. In April of 2009 we both set out on a business together, and our mission was to help people and be apart of a solution. We spent two and a half years trying all sorts of things, making mistakes, arguing back and forth about who was right and who was wrong.

Gotta love it! I laugh now, but at the time we were two stubborn bull heads who thought we knew it all. But through it all we never let it damage our relationship, and it only made us stronger!
It was the summer of 2010 when all of the sudden my Dad's health started to slowly decline. I can remember thinking, c'mon......not now!

After all, we we're a team, partners, and I needed him. How selfish was that now that I look back! 

After several trips to see different doctors he was diagnosed with a severe case of psoriosis, and auto-immune disorder. He would have these outbreaks every other week or so, and it was affecting his hands and feet. Medication after medication wasn't fixing the problem. His hands and feet were raw and would crack and could never heal completely. The poor guy even started losing his nails. Man......this was hard to watch!

We take for granted everyday the things we can do with our hands and feet.....walking, opening cans and bottles, going places in public and having people wonder.....what's wrong with that guy?
I started to see what they were saying about our health is the most important thing. Well, this only continued to get worse, and my Dad was pretty much ready to give up.

Now, one thing I learned from being involved in Health & Wellness was that there are solutions out there, and sometimes we just have to search out on our own and never give up! It's sad to say, but too many doctors today would rather just keep writing prescriptions and give their patients false hope.

So a few months back I started doing my research every night when my boys would go to bed, and I was bound and determined to help him find a solution! I made the comment once that, as long as I was alive, I wasn't going to sit back and watch my Dad give up!

Well low and behold one night I came across something that has and will change us forever. I began to learn about the power of the Hemp seed along with Marine Phytoplankton and the importance of  organic raw whole foods. Now understand folks, it was only a few months back that none of these terms were ever a real part of my vocabulary. Today, I can't wait to tell people!

So to bring you up to now......I came across a dear woman named Becca a month back, and visited her website a few different times before I asked her what do I need to do to get my Dad some samples?

Becca responded......Chris, just email me your address and I'll get some off to you tomorrow. How easy was that?

A few days later they arrived, and I couldn't wait to get em' in my Dad's hands. Now, I'll let him tell you the rest!

Amen....Right? So that brings this story to an end for now, but my hope is that people will begin to realize that they no longer have to settle for not feeling good and thinking that this is just the way things are going to be.

A beautiful thing happens when we can start to live in a solution......the problem tends to get pushed out of the way! I hope my Dad's story is able to impact someone you care about, and I hope you can spend a few more minutes here learning about the power of Versativa and Inspirin. You just never know who you might be able to impact! 

Until next time....Take Care Everyone!

Lose the stress.....Ease the pain!

Make Health a Habit.....Not an Event.....Pleasurable!

What Really Happened to Hemp?

So, with all these uses and benefits, why is Hemp cultivation illegal in the United States today? Here is a brief history of the prohibition:

Hemp was a primary source of paper, textile, and cordage fiber for thousands of years until just after the turn of the 20th century. It was at this time that companies like DuPont first developed chemicals that enabled trees to be processed into paper.

DuPont's chemicals made wood pulp paper cheaper than paper made from annual crops like hemp. At the same time Wm. Randolph Hearst, the owner of the largest newspaper chain in the United States, backed by Mellon Bank, invested significant capital in timberland and wood paper mills to produce his newsprint using DuPont's chemicals.

DuPont also developed nylon fiber as a direct competitor to hemp in the textile and cordage industries. Nylon was even billed as synthetic hemp.

DuPont was also manufacturing chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers useful in the cotton industry, another hemp competitor.

Mellon Bank, owned by U.S. Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, was also DuPont's primary financier. Mellon's niece was married to Harry Anslinger, deputy commissioner of the federal government's alcohol prohibition campaign. After the repeal of Prohibition, Anslinger and his entire federal bureau were out of a job. But Treasurer Mellon didn't let that happen. Andrew Mellon single-handedly created a new government bureaucracy, the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, to keep his family and friends employed. And then he unapologetically appointed his own niece's husband, Harry Anslinger, as head of the new multimillion dollar bureaucracy.

At the same time, a machine was developed that was to hemp what the cotton gin was to cotton: it allowed hemp's long, tough fiber to be mass processed efficiently and economically for the first time. Popular Mechanics, in February 1937, predicted hemp would be the world's first "Billion Dollar Crop" that would support thousands of jobs and provide a vast array of consumer products from dynamite to plastics.

This potential rejuvenation of hemp was a major threat to Secretary Mellon's friends and business associates, especially Randolph Hearst with his wood paper industry and Lammont DuPont with his petrochemical and synthetic fiber conglomerates. After all, hemp farmers wouldn't need DuPont's chemicals to grow their hemp because the crop is self-sufficient. The hemp-based ethanol fuel that was mentioned in the Popular Mechanics' article probably didn't sit too well with the oil companies of the time. They also couldn't have been too thrilled to learn that this same plant produced high-strength plastics without a petroleum base. The hemp-based plastics developed at the time were stronger and lighter than steel, which we can imagine wasn't the best news for the steel industry.

In addition, the growing pharmaceutical companies were producing synthetic drugs to replace natural medicines. Hemp extract was used for thousands of years to effectively
treat everything from epileptic fits to rheumatoid arthritis. Chances are, hemp's resurgence wasn't good news for these drug companies either.

What we see is that the potential revival of the hemp industry was a threat to almost all the corporate giants of the time, and Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon was at the top of this food chain.

So Commissioner Anslinger, Mellon's appointee, begins researching rumors that immigrants from Mexico are smoking the flowers of the hemp plant. Racism was rampant at the time, and there was a government movement to curb the number of immigrants crossing the U.S. border at Mexico. Anslinger plugged into the racist sentiment, and began referring to the "hemp" that Americans knew cannabis to be, as "marijuana," the Mexican slang word for the plant. He labeled it as a "narcotic" even though cannabis flowers cannot cause narcosis, and spread exaggerated stories and outright lies that Mexicans and blacks became violent and disrespectful to whites when they smoked the "evil menace marijuana."

This slander of cannabis was all just fine for Anslinger's friends, the Mellons, the DuPonts, and the Hearsts. In fact, Hearst's newspapers picked up on the propaganda and fueled the fire by publishing hundreds of lurid stories about people raping and murdering while under the influence of marijuana. The sensationalism sold lots of newspapers, and the people of the country actually based their opinions on this one-sided information. Of course the stories never mentioned the hemp that people used everyday as rope, paper, medicine, and more. The stories always referred to cannabis by the Mexican slang word, marijuana.

With the moral and prohibitive fervor of the time duly stirred, Anslinger took his show to Congress. At the proceedings of the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, Anslinger didn't mention that marijuana was hemp. And because anti-marijuana propaganda didn't mention that basic fact, hemp industries found out almost too late about the effort to criminalize cannabis cultivation.

Testimony was heard from the full gamut of hemp companies and advocates, from birdseed suppliers to cordage manufacturers, from farmers to physicians, all touting hemp's importance in American history and the many industrial, agricultural, medicinal, and economic benefits of cannabis. Only after their testimony, was the wording of the bill changed to allow for the continued legal cultivation of industrial hemp. Anslinger even backed off on hemp prohibition in a very cunning maneuver.

After the Act was passed, Anslinger single-handedly usurped congressional power by mandating hemp prohibition. He justified his action by saying that his agents couldn't tell the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana in the field, so hemp cultivation made enforcement of marijuana prohibition impossible. This unconstitutional usurpation of congressional law is still in effect today as the Department of Justice and the DEA still cling to Anslinger's unjust and unjustifiable prohibition on domestic hemp cultivation.

What in God's name is Marine Phytoplankton?

Marine Phytoplankton

The FIRST, The BEST and FINAL say in 
Health and Wellness!

Marine Phytoplankton is the perfect food that alone contains almost every nutritional component necessary to build and sustain life. It is the foundation of the earth's food chain and it provides, by its very breath, 90% of the earth's oxygen supply .. sustaining the nutritional needs of the earth's animal kingdom which include you and me.

Whole Food Marine Phytoplankton :
  • 400 times the energy of any known     plant
  • a major source of the Earth’s oxygen supply
  • the first known food or plant on earth
  • whales live on it
  • more than 200 sea veggies
  • nutritional analysis that is second-to-none
  • nourishing and complete proprietary blend
  • has eluded man until now
  • exclusive to ForeverGreen 

Scientists at NASA theorize that ages ago, the world was changed forever. The appearance of tiny organisms with the ability to convert sunlight, warmth, water and minerals into protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and amino acids marked the beginning of life. Marine phytoplankton, these single-celled plants, are the basis of all other life forms on planet Earth and are the ‘vegetation’ of the ocean. Marine phytoplankton are consumed by the smallest to the largest forms of life. Whales that feed on plankton and are known to live up to 200 years.

The body doesn’t know its chronological age; it only acts its biological age. It will perform miracles by the minute when edified with the proper raw materials. Restoration Biology is a way to Honor the intelligence of the body, where age really is just a number, leaving your biological age up to you. 

Marine Phytoplankton, the food source that has been feeding the earth, since the earth began. Now Available for Your Super Health. Jacques Cousteau once said,  “The future of nutrition is found in the oceans.”

Hemp is a unique plant based source of “complete protein” - containing all 20 amino acids, including the 10 essential amino acids, high dietary fibre and essential fatty acids. Hemp as a crop is also beneficial to our environment and has many uses such as fuel, fiber, paper, seed, food, oil, etc.

Hemp also contains Essential Fatty Acids – Omega 6 to Omega 3 for the human body. These Essential Fatty Acids contribute towards general health, and specifically help circulation, the heart, hair and skin, joints and the immune system. Hemp does not contain the dioxins and toxins often found in oily fish, making it a unique source of the long chain fatty acids.
Hemp is a whole complete food - that is produced without pesticides and harvests in 90-120 days. 
So I guess the real question should be, Why not choose Hemp?

If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, and pain and stress is an everyday issue, then this is for YOU!!!

Today I challenge everyone to quit settling for this modern day plague, and begin to start looking at a SOLUTION. That's right, I said SOLUTION!

How can you say that you ask? Well real quickly I can tell you......After years of watching my father suffer with Auto-Immune Disorder and chronic pain, I couldn't sit back and watch it anymore.
It forced me to do my research and discover something that he has had immediate results with. Now we've all heard "Take this, and allow it to get into your bloodstream, and in a couple weeks you'll feel better!"
Folks, I'm hear to tell you, that within 15 minutes, my 63 year old skeptic, stubborn father couldn't believe the relief he had experienced after consuming this MIRACLE! The very next day he shared with me that he even slept the whole night through. Was this an accident? I think NOT!

So today, I feel I have a responsibility to share this and pass it on to you! This isn't going to be kept a secret. 
We all love and care for someone who is dealing with similar issues, and today we can be responsible for helping them to improve their circumstance and help them to STOP stepping over their health to do what it is they really want to do in life.

So again, I challenge each and every one of you to take a few minutes today, and learn about these AMAZING benefits and how people are regaining HOPE back in their lives!

By you doing that, you obviously care and have a heart, and I would like to send a FREE sample to you or that person you know that needs to understand there is a SOLUTION!

"We no longer have to settle for not feeling good! We can begin to take charge of our lives, start to feel better, and help others to do the same."

Be sure to email me your address and contact info so I can get your sample off to you! If you have anymore questions, please don't hesitate to pick up the phone either!

I look forward to hearing from you, 
and hope you all have a WONDERFUL Day!

* Hemp contains 25% - 31 % protein, second only to soy (35%), but the protein in hemp foods is more easily digestible.

* Hemp seed can be pressed into a nutritious Omega 3-6 oil, which contains the highest amount of fatty acids of any plant and is in the perfect balance to be used by the  human body. Fatty acids are only available from our diet and are responsible for our immune system responses and they clear the arteries of cholesterol and plaque.
* Ground hemp seed protein, often made into a protein shake powder, is one of mankind's finest, most complete and available-to-the-body vegetable proteins, superior to even soy.

*Hemp seed protein is unique from other seeds (including flax)  in that it contains all the amino acids essential to life. The very high density of nutrients per  calorie make hemp a good choice if your goal is quick weight loss.

* Hemp seed protein is 65% globulin edistin, which is the highest in the plant kingdom. It also includes albumin, so the protein is readily available in a form quite similar to that found in blood plasma.

* Hemp seed is an excellent source of calcium and iron and are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.

* The byproduct of pressing the oil from hemp seed is high quality protein seed cake. It can be sprouted (malted) or ground and baked into cakes, breads, and casseroles.

* Eating hemp seeds could aid people suffering from immune deficiency diseases.

* Hemp seed is gluten free and consequently will not trigger symptoms of celiac disease.

* Hemp seed oil can be used as cooking oil, to be added to hot pastas or mixed with salad dressings.

* The Chinese have been using hemp seeds for constipation in their herbal formulas for thousands of years.

* Hemp seed "nut" (that which remains after the removal of the seed shell), may be added to many foods or incorporated in baking, and can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees without hardening.

* Hemp oil has been shown to relieve the symptoms of eczema and have anti-inflammatory

Hello & Welcome Friends!

Hemp Therapy you say??? Can it really be therapeutic? Well guess what.....It most certainly can! 

Now let's first begin to understand the difference between Hemp and it's ugly cousin Marijuana.

Hemp my friends is not Marijuana! Smoking marijuana will make the user high, and smoking hemp will not. Hemp contains less than 1 percent of the active ingredient THC, the substance that gives pot smokers a high. Marijuana plants, on the other hand, can contain 10 to 20 percent THC.

Marijuana plants and hemp plants have different appearances and are harvested differently. Marijuana plants tend to be short and bushy, while hemp plants can have stalks that are 25 feet high! Unlike marijuana, hemp has many uses. Over 25,000 products can be manufactured from hemp, including hair conditioner, diapers, insulation, carpets, paper, and perfume.  Things like rope made out of hemp never rot like traditional rope.  Hemp as a food is one of the most easily absorbed by the body, and can help you live a healthier and happier life. 

• Hemp seeds contain up to
36% protein.
• The protein in hemp seed is
comprised of approximately
65% Edestin and can be
found only in hemp seed
• Edestin aids digestion, is low in
phosphorus and is considered the backbone of human cellular DNA.
• Hemp protein contains all 20 known
amino acids including the 8 essential
and 2 semiessential amino acids (EAA’s)
our bodies cannot produce. Proteins are
considered complete when they contain
all 9 essential amino acids in a sufficient
quantity and ratio to meet the body’s
protein requirements.
• No other single food source has the
essential amino acids in such an easily
digestible form, nor has the essential
fatty acids in as perfect a ratio to meet
human nutritional needs.
• Hemp seed is an excellent source of
calcium and iron. Whole hemp seeds
are also a good source of phosphorus,
magnesium, zinc, copper and
• Hemp seed is gluten free and consequently will not trigger symptoms of celiac disease

The hemp debate and the marijuana debate are often confused with each other. Proponents of legalizing hemp cultivation focus on the plant's many uses and the fact that it requires no pesticides in order to flourish. That's right, Hemp actually even replenishes the soil. 

Opponents also say that other raw materials are more economical than industrial hemp, which has been disproved on more than one occasion. Cultivating hemp is currently illegal in the United States, although hemp items are imported, including hemp foods.

Marijuana, on the other hand, is supposedly illegal because of its health risks.  Legalizing marijuana point to recent studies that show that there may be some medical benefits associated with marijuana use. But, any benefits of legalizing marijuana—medical or otherwise—have to be weighed against the disadvantages, such as the intoxicating effects, which, oddly enough, are far safer than the high achieved by alcohol or even cigarettes.

Bottom line is this.....Hemp was put on the planet for a reason! We need to get back to understanding and respecting all of it's power for our environment and the human body and use it the way God intended!
