This was a bit shocking to me to say the least. Just thought I would put it out there for people to see. I saw a commercial on television and decided to research it. I do know we have not used baby powder in hospital newborn nurseries for years. It was explained to us at that time that breathing the talc could cause respiratory issues for the babies. This is a whole different ball game. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZgKRgvy9-0
Not for dishwasher. Only for washing by hand. Recipe taken from http://HUMBLEDHOMEMAKER.COM
1/2 cup of Castile liquid soap. ( I used Dr. Bronner’s baby unscented in a powder blue labelled bottle. Found easily in health food stores)
1/8 cup of water ( I used DISTILLED)
4 drops of essential oils ( 1 chose lemon)
1 teaspoon of white vinegar
I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WHILE IT’S A BIT THINNER THAN WHAT WE ARE USED TO, IT LATHERS GREAT.
IT IS FANTASTIC! IT CUTS GREASE EASILY.NO HARMFUL CHEMCALS. EASY TO MAKE.
Homemade deodorant Yea! No aluminum… Which means no fear of developing alzheimers or breast cancer . ( and gentleman, men get breast cancer too ) its all organic. I looked at many recipes on the Internet and decided to go with this one and tweaked it a bit.
Three tablespoons of pure baking soda Three tablespoons arrowroot powder ( I use bobs mill organic) 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil Optional 6 drops of lavendar essential oil or tea tree oil or whatever scent you like.
.Personally, I felt it smelled rather nice without the lavendar oil. Not girly smelling either way, so men can use this too. Mix dry ingredients together, add coconut oil and stir and press powder with back of spoon to be sure it’s thoroughly mixed and creamy. Then add lavendar oil or whatever you like, close the lid and you’re done.
No more harmful ingredients to soak into your pores. I Have been using this for several days now. Believe it or not , it’s not oily and once you rub it on, it has not stained or transferred to any of my clothing. And….yes, it works great as far as odor control.
Trust me when I say , that when you live in Florida and your a/c breaks, you definitely sweat! From what I’ve read on the Internet,coconut oil starts getting liquidy when it’s not kept in a cool place ( under 76 degrees) . My air-conditioner broke so I had to keep it in the refrigerator. Then decided, well you use your fingers to rub it in anyway so just left it out.
I saw in one of the videos, that since baking soda absorbs odors it’s a good idea to keep in a small mason jar so you don’t have it absorbing any odors from your bathroom. Good idea, I thought. I did put some of it in an old deodorant container but had to put a piece of plastic I fashioned from a ziplock bag on the bottom or I feared if it got liquidy it would drip through the bottom. So I think I will just stick to the mason jar method. These are some of the videos I watched. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0bXofKySG4A
This is a site of one of my followers. I really thought this blog was well written. In the medical field many times MRI scans cannot be performed, even though they are needed because the tattoo is less than a year old. Many colors contain metal in them. The Magnet from the MRI causes the tattoo to heat up and you can guess what that feels like. BURNS really bad! Blisters etc. can be caused not to mention feeling like you are on fire. Anyway, the article is well written so thought I would reblog and share with you all.
Safety? What could an infant do that would jeapordize it’s safety? Parents you must learn about all the things that will be a safety hazard for your child at all phases of his and her development. One of the main safety cautions, as a nurse, that I can teach you is to never leave your baby unattended. The consequences could prove deadly. And, for all of you that are new parents or parents to be, when people hold your baby or touch your baby for that matter, ask them to please wash their hands. I have a story about hand sanitizers that I plan to publish. Hand sanitizer does not take the place of hand washing. And ecoli for instance, is a bacteria that is only killed by soap at water. Alcohol does not afffect the bacteria at all. I hope you enjoy this site that I found. It is on point . CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW FAMILY MEMBER. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
The main thing is to be sure that you have clean hand before you start preparing foods. Also steam your vegetables so that they retain the necessary ingredients that are lost if you boil them. NEVER MICROWAVE YOUR BABY’S FOOD. IT NOT ONLY DESTROYS NUTRIENTS BUT IRRADIATES IT . IF ANYONE STILL HAS THEIR USER MANUAL YOU WILL READ THAT YOU SHOULD NOT OPEN MICROWAVE FOR A FEW MINUTES AFTER ITS DONE. THIS IS TO AVOID RELEASING THE MICRO WAVES. SCARY. and most importantly buy fruit and veggies from your local farmers market. They may not be publicized but every town has one. You will find you save a ton of money and have healthier NON GMO foods if your farm is an organic one. Do ask. Here’s to you and your baby’s health and good eating.
1. exaggerating or dispose to exaggerate ones own self worth or importance often by an overbearing manner.
2. Showing an offensive attitude of superiority.
With that defined, let’s talk about the hippocratic oath taken by doctors and nurses that is recited and sworn to as part of their graduation ceremony from medical and nursing schools.
What is happening to healthcare today?
The original Hippocratic oath has been changed in wording over the years but the fact remains, we are first and foremost, to do no harm. It doesn’t specify whether that harm is physical or emotional and thus, seems to be a broad term encompassing both.
Has anyone ever been asked to find a new doctor within thirty days because you chose not to follow a doctors advice?
I have never refused to care for a patient because they wouldn’t follow my advice. However, I do understand the frustration, first hand, of spending time researching a patients condition and teaching them tried and true ways to improve their condition only to have them refuse to do what I’ve taught them.
In my profession, I hear multiple complaints from patients about the physicians who treat them. The main one being , ” I wait so long in the office to see them then he/she spends five minutes with me and sends me on my way. He/ She doesn’t care! They got their money and just give me a bunch of prescriptions and send me on my way.”
Have we, as a profession, in our hurried and busy schedules, forgotten our oath? Do we not remember that the patient is a living, breathing human being that is coming to us for help? Do we lose sight of the fact that they are hurting, not just physically, but mentally as well? Have we failed to explore the reasons patients may be non-compliant? Do we not see the trust they have in us? A most sacred trust…they are trusting us with their lives!
IF SO, THEN WE HAVE DONE HARM.
The second complaint is that they have been told, ” I am the doctor , you are the patient. If you don’t want to do what I tell you, find yourself another doctor.”
This, my friends, is arrogance and NOT warmth , sympathy and understanding
that is sworn to in today’s Hippocratic oath. Many patients cry and say, ” I don’t know what happened to him/ her, they used to be such a good doctor.”
If we treat patients with arrogance, lack of compassion, and cause the patient to cry because of the way we spoke to them ,
WE HAVE DONE HARM
The third complaint is , ” I don’t think he/ she knows what to do. They just keep trying different pills, and none of them work. Some make me so sick, I can’t take them.”
The medications of today, in my opinion, are not screened long enough and as a nurse I am responsible to teach side effects of medications. I ask you not only how you explain to a patient that the medicine they were recently prescribed comes with a black box warning : SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH, but wonder how a medicine known to cause sudden cardiac death is ever approved for human consumption. And in my opinion, if we have prescribed these drugs,
WE HAVE DONE HARM
I don’t have all the answers. I don’t have many answers. But I can , in my heart of hearts, inform you as a patient and a consumer, to research all medication and discuss these side effects with your doctor before you decide to take it. There are numerous BAD DRUG commercials and lawyers just waiting to put you on the list of a massive class action lawsuit. My advice, DON’T BE ON ONE. Educate yourself about your medications and what you put into your body. Many drugs have interactions with grapefruit juice that makes the drug less effective. Green tea, while seemingly healthy, will cause a person on blood thinning medicines to have very high levels of the drug. This can cause them to bleed internally or have a brain hemorrhage stroke.
This arrogance too, while not as prominent, is increasingly becoming apparent in nursing as well. Do not stand for it. You have an absolute right to be comfortable with the person providing you care. If hospitalized and there are nurses or aides who belittle you, rush you, or make you feel uncomfortable, call the hospital operator and ask to speak to the nursing supervisor. They will not be fired, but will not be able to care for you for the rest of your stay. Do not fear repercussion. That will not happen. The individual will be spoken to and hopefully, change their manner of the way they provide care. You will actually spare others who are not able to speak for themselves .
EDUCATE YOURSELF. BE AN INFORMED CONSUMER. DO NOT KEEP SEEING A DOCTOR THAT TREATS YOU WITH ARROGANCE. FIND ONE THAT HONORS THEIR OATH. God bless you all.
There are so many decisions to be made by parents. Times have changed and the horrendous amounts of vaccines they force on our children by the age of two is staggering, just mind-blowing. Did you know if you choose not to vaccinate you can still send your child to school? They would have us believe we cannot but it’s just not true.
The videos below show you real case studies, real children who have been subjected to forced vaccinations because the doctors made parents feel as if they were bad parents if they did not . YOU ARE A BAD PARENT in my eyes , if you do not research this topic to make an informed decision on behalf of the baby that you carried for nine months . This baby that you love , this baby that is your world, this baby that people want to inject with neurotoxic poisons that will rob the very life you want your baby to have. You must make the time to see the things that are out there folks. So that when you say yes to a doctor doing these things to your child, it will be an informed decision. God bless you and guide your minds to see the truth.embed]
So much controversy these days and fears about the rising number of children with autism that has been linked to vaccinations. FIRSTLY….BE AWARE ALL VACCINES HAVE TWO VERSIONS. ONE CONTAINS MERCURY. YES FOLKS THAT SAME POISON THEY TOOK OUT OF OUR THERMOMETERS BUT THEN DECIDED TO PUT IN OUR VACCINES, FLAT SCREEN TVS AND SPIRAL ENERGY SAVING LIGHT BULBS.
Please research what I’ve just said. The NON-THImeresal version of a vaccine does not contain mercury. It does however, contain the disease that they are vaccinating you for. This site from the CDC tells you that thimeresal is not in children’s vaccines since 2001 but that if you’re concerned, in another question on the site, then you should ask to see the insert from the package. They do say thimeresal is in flu shots and they recommend all children get a vaccine every year for the flu.
Why! None of us had to and were all still alive. None of us ever had the flu year after year because we failed to get a flu shot. Folks, please do not subject your children to these vaccines. Research it.
i have heard fears if your children are not vaccinated against all the polio, diphtheria and pertussis that they cannot enter their child into school. ANOTHER FALSEHOOD. There is in fact, a form you can fill out that says you have religious objection to vaccination. This is honored and I will obtain it and post in for you as soon as I can.
