5 Things Breakthrough Marketers Do

Here are the five core elements these people truly worthy of the term marketer have mastered:

1. Focus on intent.

Great marketer decides what he or she wants to accomplish with the target and creates a campaign in which every detail has purpose and intent to compel the target to that specific action. Everything else is a crapshoot or waste of resources. From now on, every time you make a marketing decision to take action, ask yourself why you are doing so. If you don’t have a good answer, don’t do it.

2. Craft the message.

Great marketers break through by crafting a compelling value proposition that resonates with the need of the potential customers. Identify the pain you can solve for your customers and let them know you are there to resolve their issues with your product or service. They won’t care about you until you demonstrate you care about them.

3. Coordinate actions.

Successful marketing is a coordinated series of events that build upon one another to help drive a potential customer to action. Make sure your messaging is aligned with your value proposition. Every piece of marketing should have a distinctly related feel to everything else you do. Chart out the path of the customer, and use each tool to enhance the experience along the way. Make sure your sales team uses the tools and the language or they will derail the entire process.

4. Engage creativity.

Breakthrough marketers understand that they are entertainers first. They use the entire palette of color to delight the potential customer. Most people want to have fun whenever they can, so give them the chance, and they are sure to come back to you more often.

5. Practice measurement.

Many in the marketing profession think the creation and distribution of a marketing piece is the endgame. They are proud of the website they built, or brochure they created and distributed to the masses. Breakthrough marketers understand that the only endgame is return on investment. Those who are serious about marketing are data hogs watching the responses on every level so they can tweak and adjust to get to the optimum return. Find a way to measure return on every marketing dollar you spend. If you can’t measure it, reapportion the resource to a campaign that is quantifiable. Ultimately, every company hires a marketer for one reason, to make money.

What is Diatomaceous Earth?

DEDiatomaceous Earth

The uses and healthy effects of Diatomaceous Earth in powder form (or DE) reaches back more than 5,000 years to ancient China where it became part of traditional Chinese Medicine. Some use it as an additive to stored grain to keep it bug free and to stretch flour stores while other health-conscious individuals use it as an alternative to commonly used chemicals to grow and strengthen the hair, develop elasticity in the skin, harden the bones, and promote general well-being. In an Australian study, DE was found to lower blood cholesterol in humans. It is also an excellent source of plant derived silica. Adding diatomaceous earth to your diet can rid the body of parasites that can contribute to food intolerance, nausea, bowel discomfort, pain, itching, asthma, sinus infections, Morgellon’s disease, and a host of other allergic-type reactions. Initially, you may experience a Herxhemier reaction (The Jarisch-Herxheimer Reaction is a reaction to endotoxins released by the death of harmful organisms within the body), which can cause abdominal discomfort and flu-like symptoms. This is a normal response to detoxing, as parasites and pathogens die, releasing their toxins into your system for elimination. The symptoms disappear after a few days.

Diatomaceous Earth is also the best natural chelating product available and can used to detoxify the body of mercury, cadmium, lead and other heavy metals, remove poisons from chem-trails, radiation, and may alleviate the effects of GMOs. There are literally hundreds of ways DE is beneficial to humans, animals and plant life alike. As a daily supplement, many believe that it’s most beneficial uses is for internal cleansing

by aiding in the elimination of intestinal parasites, which are not able to develop an immunity to the sharp edges of DE. It has been concluded that the drastic increase of heavy metal poisoning case has occurred in part due to fluoridated water, mercury in vaccines, aluminum based deodorants, particular varieties of seafood, foil wrapping, aluminum cookware, and who knows how many other ways.

Usage
Make sure you use only food-grade Diatomaceous Earth to detox. This ensures that the product has not been chemically treated. DE can be taken for a period of months or years depending on the desired effects. Individual dosages vary and are usually based on size and weight. Reports run the gamut between a heaping teaspoonful in a smoothie two to three times a week to a tablespoon each morning and evening with water. As with all new health routines, proceed cautiously. There can be health problems associated with evacuating too many parasites too quickly from your body.

Dissolve less than one teaspoon for every 100 pounds you weigh in a glass of pure water of about 8 – 10 fluid ounces and take it once a day. Other liquids can be used but don’t mix DE with citrus liquids insuring you avoid a gut reaction. Stir constantly as you drink, it as the substance does not dissolve easily. Drink plenty of pure water, juices and herbal teas throughout the day to help aid the detox process. When mixing your D.E., remember it is texture and weight, more than taste, that will pose the challenge to create a smooth mixture. D.E.’s taste is virtually undetectable, extremely bland, sometimes described as chalky. It is easy to whisk a teaspoon to a tablespoon into a small glass of water and chug it down. Expect a clay-like texture that varies in consistency depending on the amount of water you use. Try adding it to a blended drink. D.E. is similar in weight to protein powder and will mix easily into your blended concoction. Diatomaceous earth can be used in conjunction with other parasite cleanse products or on its own to maintain your system’s health.

Increase the dosage of food-grade Diatomaceous Earth over a number of weeks until you gradually reach two tablespoons per day. This will

help prevent a reaction referred to as “healing crisis,” which can happen during the detox process as the body tries to get rid of toxins at a rate too fast to dispose of them.


Other Uses –
You may feel worse initially as you start the process, but that’s just a sign that the detox is working.

Household Pesticide
• Fill a gallon-sized plastic bag with food-grade diatomaceous earth. Close the bag and ensure that it is completely sealed. Pinch a corner of the bag and turn it upside down. Snip that end with a pair of scissors. Only cut off 1/6 to 1/8 of an inch to create a small hole.
• Turn the bag over and pour the diatomaceous earth out in a long line along the areas of your to be treated. Use along baseboards, along the backs of cupboards, behind the refrigerator, on windowsills and in any nooks or spaces where you have a pest problem. Diatomaceous earth is effective against household insects and bugs (cockroaches, ants, silverfish, etc.) but will not work on mice and rats. Wear protective eye goggles and a face mask while handling diatomaceous earth to avoid getting it in your eyes and lungs.
• Sprinkle diatomaceous earth on your carpets to kill fleas and ticks. Allow it to sit in the carpet for at least 24 to 48 hours in order to expose all pests to it and then vacuum it up with an ordinary vacuum cleaner.
• Dust diatomaceous earth on houseplants, around their pots and on top of the potted soil to control pests, such as spiders, aphids and ants.

In the Garden
• Create a 2- to 3 3/4-inch (about 5 cm to 7 cm) wide swath of food-grade diatomaceous earth around garden plants by using the baggie method to create a slug guard.
• Dust garden plants with diatomaceous earth after it has rained. Diatomaceous earth will not adhere to plants well unless they are slightly moist. You can spray your plants with a mister and then dust, or you can add diatomaceous earth to your sprayer and mix with water. This works well on pond plants and makes application simple. The diatomaceous earth will need to be reapplied after it rains. Minimize the destruction of beneficial insects by applying diatomaceous earth in the late afternoon or early evening when insect activity is lowest. Do not apply it excessively.
• Mix one part diatomaceous earth to five parts water with a few drops of dish soap in a spray bottle. Spray this mixture on the trunks of trees to kill off borers and bark-desiccating bugs.

Pet Care
• Mix 1/2 tsp. food-grade diatomaceous earth with your pets’ food (for smaller animals) and 1 tsp. for larger animals, once a day. Diatomaceous earth is believed to help control internal parasites, such as worms. Some pet foods already have diatomaceous earth mixed into them.
• Fill a salt shaker or flour duster with food-grade diatomaceous earth. Ensure that the ports are open so that it can flow freely.
• Dust your pets’ fur with diatomaceous earth, and rub it in to kill fleas and ticks. Avoid dusting in your pets’ eyes and face. One dusting should be enough to treat a short-haired animal, but a second dusting might be required for a pet with longer fur. Wash, dry and comb your pet prior to dusting. Keep your pet calm and on a leash for a few hours before allowing it to resume normal activity. Do not wash your pet for at least a week after an application.
• Apply diatomaceous earth to your pets’ bedding on both sides and around any of the areas where the pet may roam or rest. You can apply it to outside pens, if desired. Be careful not to expose beneficial insects to diatomaceous earth or they will be killed along with undesired pests.
• Diatomaceous earth for pond fish. Apply one cup per hundred gallons of water. This will help prevent parasite infestations of your fish. However it will also kill dragonfly larvae and other underwater insect pond life that you might want to keep.

You can buy Diatomaceous Earth in various places around the internet or you can buy the Uncooked DE Cleanse from the Uncooked Market.

Pineal Gland?

The pineal gland or the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the third eye, is a small endocrine gland in the brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions along with who knows what other operation chemicals, emotional chemicals and other hormones. Its shape resembles a small pine cone and it is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies meet.

Various research being conducted so far confirms that there are certain periods in the night, between the hours of one and four in the morning where chemicals are released in the brain that bring about feelings of connectedness to one’s higher source.

The Secret: What they don’t want you to KNOW!

With more advance practice and ancient methods it is also possible to control the thoughts and actions of people in the physical world. Yes, it is bizarre, but the United States, former Soviet Union governments and various shadow organization have been doing this type of research for ages and have succeed far beyond our imagination. Every human’s the third eye can be activated to send and receive frequencies. A pineal gland once tuned into proper frequencies with help of meditation, yoga and other methods, enables a person to travel into other dimensions, popularly known as astral travel, astral projection or remote viewing.

The pineal gland is signified in Catholicism as a pine cone in art. Ancient societies like the Egyptians and Romans knew the benefits and exemplified this with a symbol of an eye. Pineal Gland reference is also in back of the U.S. dollar bill with what is called the ‘all seeing eye’, which is a reference to the ability of an individual (or group of individuals) to use this gland and go ‘elsewhere’…

The Conspiracy: How the choices we make are killing your Pineal Gland

The pineal gland actually absorbs more fluoride than anything else in the body, even bones. The pineal gland acts like a magnet to sodium fluoride. This calcifies the gland and makes it no longer effective in balancing hormonal processes throughout the body. It can be found in foods, beverages, tooth paste, mouthwashes, and in our bath and drinking water. Sodium fluoride is put in 90% of the United States water supply. Water filters you buy in supermarkets do not take the fluoride out. Only reverse osmosis or water distillation (which is a bot cheaper) can effectively remove the fluoride from water.

Frankly, the biggest reason most people believe sodium fluoride is in our water, food, and everything else is to dumb down the masses. The fluoride quelling method was introduced into the water by the Nazis and the Russians in their concentration camps to make the camp population docile and more likely to resist questioning authority.

The Detox: Cleansing the Third Eye

With all the facts about the pineal gland out there along with the research and science, not to mention the spiritual aspects of health and balance, the next logic step is to detoxify the system and avoid doing further damage to the brain, body, soul, or any portion there in.

So how do we do that?

The first step is discontinue the use and abuse of toxic matter that directly effects the pineal gland. Things like fluoride, chlorine, unfiltered tap water, mercury, pesticides, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and various other toxins directly effect the pineal gland through calcification and the acidification of the environment within human body. The second step is begin cleansing the pineal gland along with the rest of the body. Raw chocolate, garlic, raw apple cider vinegar, oregano oil, Vitamin K1, neem oil, and tamarind have all been found to be effective in the removing calcification from the pineal gland. Once the pineal gland has been cleaned out, the next step is to activate the third eye through meditation, Qi-gong, as well as various other energy practices. Once you’ve activated your third eye…

..the next step is up to you.

Happy Cleansing.

How do you Stop Snoring?

Image

If you’re like most Americans you probably don’t get eight hours sleep each night.

But, if you also constantly feel exhausted, experience headaches for no obvious reason or have high blood pressure, you could have a more serious problem.

That’s because these can all be the result of snoring—which is, in turn, the most common symptom of a potentially serious health problem—obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

While most people think of snoring as a minor annoyance, research shows it can be hazardous to your health.  That’s because for over 18 million Americans it’s related to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). People who suffer from OSA repeatedly and unknowingly stop breathing during the night due to a complete or partial obstruction of their airway.  It occurs when the jaw, throat, and tongue muscles relax, blocking the airway used to breathe.  The resulting lack of oxygen can last for a minute or longer, and occur hundreds of times each night.

Thankfully, most people wake when a complete or partial obstruction occurs, but it can leave you feeling completely exhausted.  OSA has also been linked to a host of health problems including:

  • Acid reflux
  • Frequent nighttime urination
  • Memory loss
  • Stroke
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart attack

People over 35 are at higher risk.

OSA can be expensive to diagnosis and treat, and is not always covered by insurance.  A sleep clinic will require an overnight visit (up to $5,000).  Doctors then analyze the data and prescribe one of several treatments.  These may require you to wear uncomfortable CPAP devices that force air through your nose and mouth while you sleep to keep your airways open, and may even include painful surgery.

If you sleep next to someone that snores because of OSA, there are options for you and your partner.

Tighten your Zzoma
This belt-like device is worn around the chest area during sleep; its firm foam material gently forces you to slumber on your side, which helps prevent snoring. “Most people snore on their back, and 30 to 40 percent of the general population snores on a regular basis,” says Samuel Krachman, M.D., professor of medicine and director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Temple University. His research shows that the Zzoma reduces episodes of abnormal breathing due to positional sleep apnea (which occurs when you temporarily stop breathing while sleeping on your back). Untreated, sleep apnea is a risk factor for high blood pressure, coronary disease and heart failure.
Play the didgeridoo
A study from the University of Zurich showed that regularly playing this Aboriginal wind instrument reduced daytime sleepiness and nighttime snoring in people with moderate sleep apnea. “The effects of the didgeridoo are similar to singing,” says Joanne Getsy, M.D., medical director of the Drexel Sleep Center in Philadelphia. “Playing it strengthens the upper airway muscles that dilate the airway and reduces the chance that the airway tissue will become floppy during the night, which causes snoring.” Dr. Getsy says tuba, trumpet and clarinet players have a similar advantage—though research in this area is minimal.
Exercise your tongue
“Certain exercises strengthen the tongue, reshaping it to fit better in the oral cavity and training it to ‘live’ on the roof of the mouth, so it doesn’t fall and block the airway,” says Janet Bennett, M.Ed, creator of the IJustWantToSleep program. She explains that making a sound of “t-t-t-t-t” (like you’re scolding someone) strengthens the tip of the tongue. To exercise the sides, do the “tense and relax”: Let your tongue hang out, relaxed—then tense it by pointing and holding for three seconds. Repeat.
Bite down on a mouthpiece
“Boil-and-bite anti-snoring dental devices” can be effective, says Steven Y. Park, M.D., clinical assistant professor of otolaryngology at the New York Medical College and author of Sleep, Interrupted (Jodev Press, 2008). “These devices mold to your upper and lower teeth, and pull your lower jaw and the back of your tongue forward. This opens your airway, allowing you to breathe better.” Dr. Park adds that mouthpieces prevent tongue collapse in deep sleep, and can also be effective in promoting sound sleep for non-snorers.
Wear an air mask
A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) mask is commonly used for moderate to severe sleep apnea. They connect to a pump that pushes air into the nasal passages and throat, keeping airways open. However, not everyone can tolerate wearing a mask over their nose and face overnight. Dr. Krachman of Temple University says the CPAP is very effective, but only used correctly 50 percent of the time. Users, heed your sleep specialist’s instructions! Shannah Godfrey, 46, of Independence, Mo., says, “I can’t stand not to use my CPAP. I don’t get as many sinus, ear, or throat infections now. My chronic sinusitis is gone and my colds last only half as long.”
Chin Strap
A recent case study published by Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine concludes that wearing a simple chinstrap while you sleep can be an effective treatment for OSA.

The chin strap, which is now available from a company called MySnoringSolution, works by supporting the lower jaw and tongue, preventing obstruction of the airway.  It’s made from a high-tech, lightweight, and super-comfortable material.  Many people have used a chinstrap to help relieve their snoring symptoms, and they report better sleeping, and better health overall because of it.

Accupuncture 
Snoring can be caused by obstructed nasal passages or allergies,and it’s important to find a remedy that treats the underlying cause. According to Terry Courtney, L.Ac., dean of the School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Bastyr University outside Seattle, “Oftentimes with a structural problem, the local tissue is irritated or inflamed. Acupuncture can address this condition by reducing the local inflammation and helping to clear passageways.”
While Courtney says a severe structural problem like a deviated septum would need to be addressed by a physician, “People with sinusitis often benefit from treatment with Chinese medicine. Sometimes it only takes a handful of treatments; often people benefit from more frequent treatment during peak allergy seasons. Depending on the practitioner’s training, sometimes acupuncture is used [alone] and or in combination with Chinese herbs to address this condition.” And the snorer—along with his or her partner—may therefore rest longer in the land of nod.
Alignment Pillow
Then there are types of special pillows which help you prevent snoring by changing your sleeping position from a back sleeper or a stomach sleeper to a side sleeper. The reason behind this is because there is much more snoring occurring in the back and stomach sleeping positions compared to the side sleeper position and these pillows, which tend to be much more bulky will create a physical, but comfortable, obstacle so that the person can not rotate or shift around the bed and remains to sleep on the side with as perfect alignment of the head, neck and spine as possible and as little pressure on the windpipe as it can be made.
Regular Exercise
Getting and staying fit is very important. For your general and over all well being, not to mention your loved ones who want you stick around for a while. You can do as or as little exercise as you like honestly but it starts with what you’re eating. When you’re doing as much as you physically can muster along with eating in a way that your body can heal itself from the inside out, you will see results and create a better life for yourself at the same time.
Image
If you’re still snoring after trying all of these options,
it is time seek serious medical attention. Not because you snore but because you’re partner punched you in the throat to stop you from snoring. If every sound that could possibly be heard sounds like it’s happening right next to your skull or your other half can’t keep a sock in it, try ear plugs. They gotta be good ones to, like shotgun ear plugs. It’s kinda weird honestly, when I put ear plugs in, within 2 minutes, I’m knocked out. I tell my lady, “I’m going in.” She knows that means stop talking, let me sleep, and snore away.
Ear plugs or the couch, it’s your choice…
Or theirs.

Grass!!! Wheat & Barley Grass – What, Why & How

Wheat & Barley Grass

Young cereal grasses — like wheat and barley grass — are recognized by their bright emerald green colors. At the early grass stage of their growth, wheat and barley are closer to vegetables than grains in their make up. It isn’t until the wheat and barley plants mature that gluten is formed which is why the young grass is so much better for you than anything made with cooked wheat or barley products.

Many people include barley or wheat grass in their diet because of the wide variety of benefits, such as prevention of cancer, lower blood pressure and cholesterol and an expedited immune system response.

The use of barley grass for medicinal purposes dates back to 7,000 BC, when records first show that the grass was grown as a crop. It was then used to treat a variety of sicknesses, including blood and liver problems; it is said that ancient gladiators chewed on the grass to boost energy and stamina before fights. The understanding of barley grass benefits has evolved and can now be found in several forms.

High concentrations of chlorophyll—the green pigment found in some plants that gives the green food group its name—acts much like human blood’s oxygen carrier, hemoglobin. Chlorophyll inhibits the growth of disease bacteria when introduced into the diet, and this effect may create a wide array of barley grass benefits. Barley grass does away with atoms with an odd number of electrons created through normal body functions that can cause damage to healthy cells.

The nutrient profiles of these grasses changes quickly as they grow. As the plant grows, the chlorophyll, protein and vitamin content of cereal grasses declines sharply and the level of cellulose (indigestible fiber) increases. Over a period of several months, the green leafy cereal grasses become amber waves of grain bearing the kernels we harvest to make into unhealthy inflammation causing flour we are all accustomed to.

Barley vs. Wheat Grass

Some claim that barley grass is easier on the digestive system than wheat grass. Barley grass is also said to contain an exceptionally high amount of “organic sodium” and is known to alleviate arthritis symptoms more effectively than wheat grass juice.

However, there is no evidence that barley grass is any better or worse than wheatgrass in terms of its likelihood of producing adverse effects, its nutritional properties, or its health effects.

There is very little nutritional difference between wheat grass and barley grass, although it is important to note that barley grass acts as a free radical scavenger that also reduces inflammation and pain, and wheat grass is richer in inflammation reducing antioxidants. It is also thought to be able to help the body attack cancer cells.

ImageYou can get these two cereal grasses in powder or tablet form. The dried grasses are a bit easier to handle than fresh, which must be juiced. However, fresh grass juice contains healthful enzymes not found in dried grass powder and is likely to be higher in just about every phytochemical found in the grass. This is why numerous healthy food and specialty store around the world now offer grass shots on their menus.

With that said, not everybody can go out and spend $2.50 (on average) for a 1 or 2 ounce shot of wheat grass whenever they want which is why so many people are resorting to the practice of growing the grass fresh for themselves.

The Wheat & Barley Grass is always greener… Where you grow it!

Growing wheat and barley grass is the easiest and most affordable way to keep plenty of the super green food on hand.

Growing wheat and barley grasses at home is pretty simple and can be mastered easily by anybody who cares enough to try it. The technique starts like many other sprouts and once the seeds begin to show signs of growth it’s time to hit the soil!

First, place seeds in a large bowl. Cover completely with cool water (60 to 70 degrees F). Stir the seeds around in the water to mix. Let soak for about 8 to 12 hours or overnight.

Next, drain the seeds. Use a mesh colander or any other fine strainer you may have to keep the seeds from draining through the holes of the strainer. Rinse the seeds with cool water and drain.

After that, put the seeds in direct sunlight or where the temperature is about 70 degrees F for anywhere from 8 to 12 hours.

Then, rinse and drain the seeds again. Set out for another 8 to 12 hours. Repeat this step at least one to three more times until the seeds have sprouted tiny roots approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch long.

While your seeds are germinating, fill your seed trays half way with organic potting soil. Spread some azomite or another trace mineral (or worm castings or whatever vegan nutrients you want) over the soil and add another layer of organic soil. Use a tray that has drainage holes in the bottom. Water the soil thoroughly so it is soaking wet; if needed mix the water down into the soil with your hands or a spade.

Once the trays are prepped, spread your germinated seeds over the top of the soil. Spread as evenly as possible. Do not push the seeds down into the soil. Cover the tray with another seed tray (make sure the cover has drainage holes to allow for air circulation) or newspaper or even some bounty paper towel.

Put your grass sprouts in an area with low lighting and a temperature of around 70 degrees F. The cooler the better but longer growing times may be needed, if it’s too hot or humid, mold will grow easily around the base of the grass stems and within the root system.

Water the grass enough to keep the soil moist but not saturated, usually once or twice a day. Using a mister type spray bottle is a great way to evenly water the grass without wetting it down to much while still incorporating plenty of fresh air. Continue misting once a day once the seed roots have buried themselves in the soil.

Image

Remove the tray top when the grass gets to about 1 to 2 inches tall, usually after 3 or 4

After about ten days or once the grass reaches about 7 to 8 inches, harvest as needed to juice or harvest it all and keep it in a green veggie bag in the fridge. Cut the grass right above the above the soil. The first harvest is always the most nutrient and flavor rich grass. Most people compost the soil and roots after harvesting but you can let it keep growing if you like. Two or three harvest are usually as good as it gets, any more after that and you’re just growing empty grass. days. Be sure to keep the tray in a well-lighted place and keep the soil moist.

Wheat & Barley grass Juice!!!

Once you’ve harvested your grass it’s time to get juicing! The best way to extract the vital juice from your young grass is with a wheat grass juicer like The Healthy Juicer. The Healthy Juicer is the most popular wheat grass juicer because it is compact and is one of the most inexpensive of the wheat grass juicers. This is the perfect juicer to have in addition to a regular juicer that doesn’t do leafy vegetables very well. The Healthy Juicer is portable, requires no electricity and is easily cleaned and stored without taking to much space in the cupboard. This juicer is known for being really efficient, easy to travel with and easy to clean and put together. Probably the best choice for most based on quality, price and ease of use.

Whatever reason you’ve decided to use wheat or barley grass, the benefits are numerous and your body will thank you sooner than later.

Why Men Aren’t Really Men Anymore

Paul Hudson recently shared Why Men Aren’t Really Men Anymore on Elite Daily.

The question, “Why aren’t Men Really Men Anymore?” is very simply answered. “Real” men are trained by real fathers. We are 6 – 7 generations deep into fatherless children, men & women. That means, there is no example around for a young man to see how to treat a woman that he has feelings for or any other woman for that matter. Just the same, there are no “Ladies” around to show young women how to act around a “Real” man. 

So that leaves us with, like the Paul said above, toddler minded boys in adult bodies trying to re-enact porn scenes with toddler minded girls in adult bodies that have never seen how a “Real” woman or a “Real” man is supposed to be. Toddler boys looking for new mommies and toddler girls looking for new daddies. 

As a new father that grew up without one, I’ve had to take it upon myself to learn how to treat my “Lady” (and she actually is one who has helped bring my first born into this world), how to respectfully communicate with men and women alike, how to treat myself and how to be father without ever having seen what one was supposed to be like. Anyone that grew up without a dad has certain mental conditioning (or lack there of) that makes it harder to know what we’re supposed to do. Situations arise with my son that I feel I just don’t know what to do about, while other situations happen with him that make me feel like I’ve know what to do all along. 

Like a computer, software that isn’t installed isn’t there at the moment it is needed. Unless toddlers in grown up bodies take it upon themselves to download and install and update necessary applications (like for example; the difference between f*cking just to get a nut off and sharing a sexually emotional relationship with the woman of your dreams {if you think you can have sex without leaving an emotional imprint within all involved parties, it’s time for a system update}, how to tell the difference between a woman and a girl regardless of age, how to raise a young man or a young woman, how to treat your partner in front of your children and other to set the best example for yourself, your lover, your family, the people around you, and the world at large, how to move with kindness and chivalry {if you don’t know what the word “chivalry” actually means, you better google it – I’m talking to both males and females here} while still being manly and true to yourself, how to calm your mind and take care of your body while motivating others to do the same, how and what to eat to maintain basic levels of health as opposed to mediocre survival [which is what most genetically modified humans do these days], or how to love yourself, this list can go on further but I think if you’re reading this still you’ve gotten the point by now), the generations to come will end up looking like “Wall-E” – oversized garbage dumps with google vision goggles attached to our faces who can’t even see the magnificent and limitless world before our eyes. 

A side note, if you are guy that has been watching porn for more than five years, your mind is officially f*cked and it’s time to go get some p*ssy other than your hand. Every nut that gets unloaded should be planting a seed, going down the hatched, or getting rubbed into the skin of a woman you actually care about.

In the information age, it’s time learn some new information –

Paul, thanks for asking questions. “Real” men and woman ask questions and question the answers we get. If you don’t like the answers you’re getting, ask better questions.

6 Myths of Eating Raw

Myth #1: You need to eat 100% raw foods and nothing else in order to get the benefits of the raw food diet.

For most people who are eating a diet high in processed and fast foods, any increase in fresh, raw, and organic foods is beneficial. Simple changes such as eating fruit for breakfast instead of pancakes or sausage will improve your health exponentially. Eating a salad for lunch will give you more energy than a hamburger, soda and fries. In order to get all of the benefits of the raw lifestyle, you do need to eat mostly raw foods, about 90-95% of your food intake. A happy medium that a lot of people adopt is the 80-20 Lifestyle. Eating 80% plant based, raw, organic foods and no more than 20% cooked meals including animal based and cooked foods if you like.

Myth #2: Everything you eat on the raw foods diet will be cold.

As long as the internal temperature of the food is 104 degrees Fahrenheit or lower, it still has vital living nutrients and sustenance. Anything over this temperature, you might as well just cook it. This means that dehydrating foods at temperatures below 104 and warming soups up on a coffee warming plate are still acceptable practices.

Myth #3: The raw food diet consists of only raw fruits and vegetables.

A raw food diet consists of fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, nut “milks”, sprouted grains, seaweeds and juices are all included on a raw diet, as well as some fermented and processed foods such as raw soy sauce, kimchee, miso, raw nut butters and cold pressed raw oils.

Myth #4: The raw food diet is more expensive than other diets.

Any diet can be more or less expensive, depending on your tastes. Certain pre-made raw items can be rather expensive, but some of the best deals will be found in the produce section of your grocery store. Apples, bananas, salad greens and many vegetables are all a bargain compared to steak and lobster.

Myth #5: You will have to eat all your meals at home when on the raw food diet.

More and more raw food restaurants are popping up around the country! Most big cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York have one or even more raw food restaurants, and many vegetarian and vegan restaurants also cater to the raw crowd. Salads and fruit smoothies can be found many places – just bring your own raw dressing, or ask for oil and vinegar.

Myth #6: You will spend all your time in the kitchen chopping vegetables and dehydrating foods for hours on end.

Well, you could. But who wants to do that? Salads, smoothies and many raw soups are quick to prepare. Realizing that many people get frustrated with complex recipes, I’ve selected and created the raw food recipes on this site precisely because they don’t require fancy and expensive equipment and hours of preparation time. That being said, investing in a food processor will save you many hours of chopping and grating. If you’re serious about raw foods, I recommend you at least invest in a blender and a food processor. You may find that eventually you will want to purchase a dehydrator and a juicer as well.

Eat

Why eat?

Is it for pleasure or lust?

What about energy and health?

Why eat, why cook or prepare something that we’ll have to clean up afterwards?

There are, after all, other ways to go about absorbing and transmitting energy. So why go through the pain of eating food-like things that they sell at grocery stores or quick markets? Why bother?

If you’ve made the decision to eat food, why eat food-like things when you could be eat actual food?

Huh? Actual food?

Yeah, actual food refers to foods that actually occur naturally in one place or another on the planet earth without any human contact at all. These foods have been cultivated and spread all over the world these days and we, thankfully, have the choice to grow these things or buy them where ever we can find them.

Too many people still think the things they are eating everyday is food. Food, by definition, is any nutritious substance that plants or animals eat, drink, or absorb in order to maintain life and growth.

Let’s break that down.

  • Nutritious Substance refers to elements necessary for growth, health, and good condition
  • Plants or Animals refers to most living things on planet earth, which if you’re reading this, you still are – Congratulations! Namaste =)
  • Eat, Drink, or Absorb refers to the most common forms of energy exchange that living things use to live and thrive.
  • Maintain Life and Growth refers to conditions that distinguish living things from inorganic matter, which includes but is not limited to; reproduction, cognitive thought at any level, and growth which is the process of developing or maturing physically, mentally, or spiritually.

As you can see, by definition, food is what living things (you and me) use to live. The things people are eating do the opposite of what food is supposed to do. The food-like matter societies across the globe have become accustomed to consuming, although they contain some level of usable energy, in fact, suppress life and growth. The processes and systems that imitation foods go through inhibit brain functions, promotes mental and physical disease, and sets the perfect stage for cancerous cells (that are already floating around inside of us) to group together and begin to cause issues that, for some, lead to death. Death because of what was thought to be food getting consumed over a number of years. For some, the number of years is a lifetime. For others, the number of years means a life that never even had a chance to live.

This is why some many people are going crazy about organic food these days. The word organic means of, relating to, or derived from living matter. Notice the word living?

The truth is the food-like things or inorganic matter that we’ve been fooled into eating is literally, bite by bite, killing us and generations to come.

Now we have genetically modified (gmo) or genetically engineered (ge) food-like things that have been “presumed” to be nutritious substances but are actually destroying our natural functions, not to mention, every living animal that eats ge foods eventually becomes sterile, some (like pigs fed gmo corn) become sterile a lot faster. You can talk or think about gmo’s all you want but the facts are the facts. If you haven’t seen it already, the documentary Genetic Roulette explains genetic engineering and what these things do inside of us.

What ever you have to do to get it in your head, it is essential to learn the facts about what you’re eating. It starts with simple steps like checking labels, shopping at local farmers markets instead of mass industry grocery stores, and growing your own food.

Checking Labels – this is pretty easy to do, especially now that a lot more smart phones and tablets are walking around with people. In the store with a package in your hand, Google search every ingredient on the ingredients list, where they come from, and what they do inside of our bodies. This simple step is huge and will raise your quality of life by leaps and bounds.

Shopping at Farmer’s Markets – The farmer’s markets in your area are mostly comprised of people that grow specialized selections of fruits and vegetables as well as eggs, and some times pet foods, and training.

Growing Your Own Food – Growing your own food is a time honored tradition that humans have practice for centuries. These days there are numerous ways to grow food no matter how much space, money or time you have to put into it. You can have something as simple as a few tower gardens that will provide so much food you’ll be sharing fresh fruits and vegetables with your family and friends. If you’re a DIYer, you could build a small aqua/aeroponic farm that produces enough food for you to open your own farmers market. If you enjoy getting your hands in the dirt and being out in nature as much as you can, you can turn your home into a food forest and create a self contained ecosystem in you yard.

Or

..continue eating food-like genetically engineered foods that will keep you in a perpetual state of death until your body can no longer sustain itself and your nature bodily functions begin to collapse on themselves leading to your actual death.

The choice is yours.

Below is some news about discoveries made in the last couple of years about genetically engineered foods and what they are actually doing inside of us.

Stop making presumptions, get educated, eat, and grow actual food.
