Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Do you know how much genetically engineered food is going on your plate? Help support the Sierra Club. They have launched a campaign against genetically engineered foods. They are targeting Kraft since it is one of the largest packaged food producer in America. We need your help to stop the use of this “frankenfood” from being in our food chain. They are even asking them to stop using milk from rBGH-treated cows as well as not using genetically engineered (GE) corn, potatoes, soy and so forth.

Please call or write and pass this on to a friend! The more people we have the stronger the chances of getting this food out of out food chain. Canada has now approved over 50 varieties of 12 GE crops, currently growing 4 varieties of corn, canola, soy and white sugar beet but import GE foods.

Tell Kraft you want GE free foods!

– Write to: Irene Rosenfeld, CEO of Kraft Foods, Inc., 3 Lakes Drive, Northfield IL 60093

– Call 1-800-847-1997

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia


EthicalOil.org is asking for your help by avoid buying Chiquita Bananas and Fresh Express Salads because of their ban on ethical Canadian oil.

What can we do to help support Canadian oil?

Sign the petition http://www.ethicaloil.org/

Quit buying Chiquita bananas!

Find alternative banana companies.

Buy organic! Most grocery stores now have organic bananas that are sometimes only ten cents more per pound. (you will be giving up genetically modified, pesticides and chemicals though!)

Look for Dole banana or any other company. (Dole is the only one I can think of as a competitor)

What I really want to know is……are they genetically modified bananas? So I did some research to see if they are and I came across some more information that we need to know.

I think we might be safe for as far as genetically modified   foods although they are starting to experiment with it now. I dug up something even bigger, just what Dole doesn’t want you to see. Perhaps we should be avoiding all bananas except organic due to the pesticides that are poisoning there workers and if they are using pesticides, then we are eating pesticides. If you saw or support Food Inc, you will like Bananas, here is the trailer you can watch now:

Remember if you are boycotting Chiquita don’t abandon bananas all together.

We know we need bananas for their potassium but what else is in a banana?

I went to bananas.com and found some fascinating facts about bananas. I knew they were healthy for you but I didn’t know how wonderful these little specially wrapped bundles are. What a powerhouse of nutrition with may medicinal healing properties.


Nutritional benefits of one large 9 inch banana

– 602 mg of potassium

– 140 calories

– 2 grams of protein

– 4 grams of fiber

– 2 mg of sodium

– 123 I.U. Vitamin A

– full range of b vitamins

  – .07mg Thiamine

  – .15 mg of Riboflavin

  – .82 mg Niacin

  – .88 mg Vitamin B6

  – 29 mcg Folic Acid

– 13.8 mg Vitamin C

– 9.2 mg calcium

– 44.1 mg magnesium

– trace amounts of iron and zinc

Wow, that is some healthy fruit! Magnesium and potassium are two vital nutrients that we have to keep replenishing

Medicinal Healing Properties

Energy Boost – #1 food with world’s athletes, contains 3 natural sugars, sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. Gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Enough for a 90 minute workout

Nerves – high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system

PMS – regulates blood glucose levels which can affect your mood

Anemia – high in iron

Overweight and at work – most obese people were more likely to have high-pressure jobs. Report from Institute of Psychology in Austria report concluded that to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to snack on high
carbohydrate foods (such as bananas) every two hours to control our blood sugar levels

Depression – bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, the feel good hormone

Blood Pressure – extremely high is potassium yet low in salt; the US Food and Drug Administration or FDA has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for it’s ability to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

Hangovers – banana milkshake with honey

Morning sickness – eating bananas between meals can help keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness

Mosquito Bites – rub the bite with the inside of a banana skin

Brain Power – can assist learning by keeping students alert

Constipation – high in fibre, can help restore normal bowel action, forget the laxatives!

Ulcers – only raw fruit that can be eaten food that can be eaten without distress for over-chronic ulcer cases, also neutralises over-acidity and coats the lining of the stomach.

Temperature Control

Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD – natural mood enhancers, trypotophan

Quit Smoking – Vitamins C, A, B6, B12, potassium, magnesium

Stress – Potassium is a vital mineral – normalizes heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates body’s water-balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing potassium levels

Strokes – eating bananas on a regular basis cuts risk by 40% according to research from New England Journal of Medicine

Warts – tape a piece of banana skin on the wart

Heartburn -natural antacid effect

I was looking for the nutritional facts of one large banana and found:

121 calories

112 from carbohydrates

3.8 from fat 

5 from protein

0 from alcohol

On the Self nutrition data website I found it interestingly included the inflammation factor:

– a banana scores shows it is mildly inflammatory at -69

– foods with a negative rates are inflammatory and foods with a positive rate are anti-inflammatory.

Tell the Congress and the FDA: The Draft Guidance on NDIs is Bad for Consumers

On July 1, the US Food and Drug Administration issued draft guidance for complying with the New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification protocols required by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA)—seventeen years late.

The biggest problem is that this guidance will turn a notification system into an approval system—a terrible precedent that will utterly cut off the supply of nutritional supplements. It will also create such huge barriers for supplement manufacturers that it will be much more difficult and expensive to produce them. But of course, that means consumers would either have to pay much more for nutritional supplements, or else risk not being able to buy them at all if the manufacturer deems them too expensive to produce.

Help in the fight for the removal of toxic chemicals in our skin and hair care products! Sunscreens, makeup, perfumes, shampoos, soaps and shaving creams, you name it. You have no idea what you are putting on your body with some products. It’s up to us to take action, so please sign the petition.

If not for yourself, do it for the children. There is so much childhood diseases now, we need to do what we can to stop the suffering. The more chemicals they put in our food, hair, personal and health care products, the more diseases there are. The list goes on and on. Take a look at psychiatry now, they are constantly coming up with new names for mental illnesses and targetting children especially. Pretty soon the whole world will have some kind of mental illness.

It could be from the chemical cocktail we go through with our daily regimen. We ingest it, we slather it on our hair and body, we drink it, we inhale it, we absorb it through out skin, lungs, mouth, ears and nose. The latest news is cell phones could be causing brain cancer. It seems the more technology, the more disease as well, hmmm.

Personal products may contain 1-4 Dioxine, a cancer causing chemical

Sunscreens may contain Oxybenzoine, a hormone disruptor

Take a minute now to sign the petition:

PLEASE take a couple of minutes out of your life right now to help save the planet.

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/save_the_bees/?cl=896931185&v=8118

Here is an insert from Avaaz.org

Quietly, globally, billions of bees are being killed off threatening our crops and food. But a global ban of one group of pesticides could save bees from extinction.

Since banning this poison in four European countries, bee populations have soared. But chemical companies are lobbying hard to keep their killer pesticide on the market. A global outcry now for a ban in the US and EU, where debate is raging, could provoke ripple effect around the world.

Let’s build a giant global buzz calling for these dangerous chemicals to be outlawed in the US and EU until and unless they are proved to be safe. Sign the petition to save bees and our crops and send this to everyone:
