The US itself spends 2 billion dollars on disposable tampons and pads! Women on average in their lifetime, use 17,000 tampons and pads! How much $$$ is that??? How much garbage is that????

No system but the ecosystem.👊🏽👊🏼👊🏾👊🏿👊🏻 Datura at dawn, in front of downtown LA, under a dark haze of its own making. 🦢🌆🦢Where the tentacles of the metropolis do not reach, the ancestors are waiting, holding space for the Return. Datura ancestors, Coyote ancestors, Scrub Jay ancestors. They aren’t desperate- they’re patient, passing their stories down, generation by generation, right under the self-important nose of the new regime, observing the growing trembles in the massive sprawl that has sprung up overnight- only a couple hundred years. It is petulant. It is always hungry, but it has no roots. And nothing without roots can last because roots- physical or metaphorical- plug us into Her, the Life Source, Giver of life force. Datura, Oak, Ceanothus, Mallow, Yarrow, Coyote Melon, Lemonade Berry, Agave, Nettle, Black Walnut- their roots underlie every step you take, every square inch of the miles and miles and miles and miles of pavement. And you have a choice: align yourself with the city- the playground of the mind, hierarchy, shiny planes and 90° angles, limitless imagination, new new new.... or align yourself with Her- depth and dreams, curves and hollows, limitless connection, time out of time, the Circle that you were born into and will die into regardless of whether or not you choose to notice where you are. You were chosen lifetimes ago, but in this life you were taught only to struggle against Her. Today could be the day that you put your forehead to the Earth and whisper your gratitude.
Back when I wasn't aware of the effects of toxic chemicals in my personal products, such as hair dyes, perms, shampoo, toothpaste, lotion etc.; I would use them without caution. Blonde, pink and orange were my favorite hair color. I wasn’t aware of the direct correlation/effect that the chemicals would have on my hormones and uterus. • At 14 years old, I started out with irregular periods and was told it was normal. Now I have learned that irregular periods are COMMON but not NORMAL. It’s good to know the difference. Then I was put on birth control pills which totally screwed up my hormones. I would spot in between cycles (which was so annoying). I couldn’t take it anymore, so I just stopped taking the birth control pills. I also took FOREVER to get pregnant with both of my kids. • With my firstborn, I went to the doctor for a regular checkup. When he asked when was my last period, I was like “Oh about 54 days ago.” I said it so nonchalantly, because I had become so accustomed to irregular cycles. He immediately ordered a pregnancy test. Lo and behold I was pregnant at 20 years old. I left the doctors office and started buying baby clothes, coloring books etc. I was too freaking excited! • From 2007 to 2012 I tried relentlessly to conceive another child and it just never happened. FYI: Don’t want no more babies. Sorry guys. My grand babies are MINE! • Fast forward, I was later diagnosed with endometriosis. Had surgery. Failed. Doctor didn’t know what to do and wanted to remove my uterus. I THINK NOT! I had already had bilateral mastectomy in 2004. Ain’t no way I’m giving y’all permission to remove any other body parts. It’s not an emergency! • Not one doctor explained that I was estrogen dominant. I discovered that myself. Shortly after I changed my diet and cut out all the hair dyes, shampoos, deodorant etc., my cycles became regular…yeah…like every single month. If I wanted a baby right now, I can make it happen WITHOUT
The vibrant vitamin C platter I shared with my daughter, featuring blood orange, navel orange, and some golden kiwi. Did you know that just one cup of kiwi provides almost 275 percent of the daily recommendation of vitamin C? So you can see this immune strengthening goodness. 🥝 Vitamin C—also referred to as ascorbic acid—is a water-soluble vitamin found in many fruits and vegetables. It is a powerful antioxidant that is instrumental in neutralizing free radicals, which are harmful to the body in excess. Vitamin C improves blood flow, aids in healing wounds, helps to build collagen, and strengthens the immune system against bacterial and viral infections. 🥝 Ascorbic acid was isolated out of red peppers in the 1930s by Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi. What he also found was that ascorbic acid was far more biologically available and active while it was still in the red pepper. When outside of the whole food matrix, ascorbic acid is not as effective. For that reason, the human body is unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, so it is an essential vitamin to obtain through our diet. Many fruits and vegetables contain vitamin C, but excess amounts of heat for long periods can destroy the vitamin complex. If you want to ensure that you are getting enough vitamin C, eat more raw fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C.
Going far beyond its culinary history, bay leaf has long been viewed as a symbol of honor and protection. 🍃 True bay leaf must come from the tree Laurus nobilis. It may also be called bay laurel or sweet bay. 🍃 Wreaths of bay laurel were made in ancient times as a symbol of triumph and bestowed upon returning generals and other successful commanders. 🍃 Similarly, interwoven bay branches shaped into a circle or horseshoe crowned athletic victors in the Olympics. 🍃 The term baccalaureate, which translates to mean “berries of laurel,” derives from the ancient Greek and Roman practice of honoring scholars and poets (poet laureate) with garlands of laurel branches. 🍃 Used in cooking for a distinctive, savory flavor and fragrance, bay leaves also add several nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, vitamin B6 and manganese. 🍃 If you are unfamiliar with adding bay leaf to dishes, start with small amounts. Break dried organic bay leaves in half or use the fresh or ground versions to bring variety in both flavor and nutrition to a meal. 🍃 Whole bay leaves can easily be added to soups and stews but should be removed after cooking as the tough nature of the leaf remains and is difficult to chew and digest. 🍃 September is the month where all things spice flavor the colorful transition to fall. At Directions Wellness, specific spices are recommended as part of each client’s Individualized Action Plan -based on the variety of natural, helpful properties they offer. #gratitude#spices#herbs#bayleaf#laurel#actionplan#organic#foodfacts#foodisfuel#healthyself#nature#homesteading#gardening#holisticnutrition#energy#functionalnutrition#functionalhealth#nourish#thrive#grow#selfcare#biohacking#bioindividuality#longevity#natureheals#wellness#directionswellness#timewellspent

📚🧠La fruta es altamente astrigente/(el tejido corporal se contraerse) rompe la mucosidad en el cuerpo. La mucosidad es la defensa natural del cuerpo contra las toxinas. 📚🥝🍉🍇🍎🍒🍈🍌 Con el tiempo la mucosidad se endurece y acidifica (contaminacion acidica) albergando bacterias y enfermedades. 🍉🍇🍒🍑🥥🍒 El sistema linfatico mueve la mucosidad fuera del cuerpo y se licua atraves de una dieta alcalina y altas cantidades de fruta. . . Solamente la madre naturaleza puede sanarte por completo. La vida moderna simplemente es una ilusion que el maligno empezo ,por mas de 600 años hizieron posible lo que hoy estamos viviendo, una vida completamente artificial llena de un orgullo ignorante y Grandes mentiras. Si piensas que no hay cura para Cida,V.i.h.,Herpes,leusemia,diabetes y muchas mas entonces El gobierno Sigue cumpliendo El Agenda donde mantienen la humanidad pensando a como Ellos quieren,LEJOS DE LA VERDAD. #govegan🌱 #fasting#conscious#plantbaseeater#fruits#alkaline#drsebi#arnoldehret#healthyself#facts#lovethycells#nomilk#nomeat#noanimals#lovenature#respectthyself#breakfree#vegano#hypocrates
