A new food and drug administration report, "pathogens and filth in spices," says that 12% of u.s. spice imports are contaminated with bug parts, rodent hairs and other ingredients more appropriate to a witches' brew than your mother's favorite recipe. 🙈🙈🙈
the fda study also found that 7% of spice imports the inspectors examined were contaminated with salmonella. salmonella, toxic bacteria that can trigger diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.
the amount of "filth" the fda found in imported spice was twice that found in other kinds of imported food. the report characterized this as a "systemic challenge." ☠️☠️☠️ since most spices cannot be grown in the united states, much of the supply comes from countries like india and mexico -- the two countries that have the highest rate of contamination. 😞😞😞 let's not forget though that whether or not these products come from countries apparently high in the contamination list ... our fda allowssss for these things to pass inspection and be consumed by us and our loved ones!! choose wisely and #readyourlabels 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #organicmamas #gmo #monsanto #fakefood #toronto #canada #organic #naturalremedy #health #wholefoods #momlife #ldnont #foodismedicine #mama #baby #vegan #vegetarian #hippie #gaia #boho #food #foodie #spices #herbs #rodenthair #fda

🥕🥕🥕this may not come as a surprise to you; after all, how can baby-cut carrots look so perfect and stay fresh for so long? you may find yourself eating baby-cut carrots long after the recommended “due date” because they still look like they’re in perfect condition. well, there’s a reason for that.🥕🥕🥕
before being packaged, the baby-cut carrots are soaked in a chlorine-water solution. the chlorine is used to limit the risk of food-borne illnesses such as e.coli. grimmway farms, a producer of baby-cut carrots, explained that the chlorine solution is within the limits set by the epa and is comparable to the amount of chlorine found in tap water.☠️☠️☠️
however, as many of you may know, the chlorine found in tap water can be extremely harmful to human health. even the u.s. council of environmental quality states, “cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.” if we can’t trust the epa to set proper limits for the chlorine in our water (which should be none), why should we trust them to set proper standards for our food?🚫🚫🚫
if you’re unfamiliar with the details of this chemical, chlorine belongs to the same chemical group as fluorine, they belong to the halogen family of elements. chlorine in its natural form is a common element on earth and is very toxic. according to the epa, americans are consuming 300-600 times the amount of chlorine that is considered “safe to ingest.”
chlorine is known as a persistent chemical, which means that unlike other sanitation chemicals it does not break down. so, even if the amount used to produce baby-cut carrots is within the epa guidelines, since you’re bound to be exposed to chlorine through other means, you should be avoiding it wherever possible.🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #organicmamas #nongmo #gmo #monsanto #fakefood #toronto #canada #canadiangirl #organic #growyourown #health #nutrition #wholefoods #fruit #veggies #carrots

💛ginger has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticancer properties. because of this, it’s thought to boost your overall immunity.
for people with arthritis, its anti-inflammatory properties are of particular benefit. ginger contains anti-inflammatory compounds that function in the same way as cox-2 inhibitors. cox-2 inhibitors (cox-2 inhibitor drugs) are prescription drugs used to treat the pain of arthritis conditions, menstrual cramps, and acute injuries 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
to date, studies exploring ginger’s potential as an effective treatment has great outcomes!
one 2000 study found that ginger extract was as effective as ibuprofen in the first treatment period of a cross-over study. researchers in a 2016 studyfound that ginger and echinacea supplements effectively reduced inflammation and pain after knee surgery.💛
researchers in one 2001 study found that highly concentrated doses of ginger extract were effective in treating people with osteoarthritis of the knee. 💛
the results of one 2002 animal study using rats suggest that ginger can help to relieve joint pain from rheumatoid arthritis. ginger was shown to reduce inflammation when taken in high doses for four weeks.💛
researchers in one 2010 study found that ginger was an effective pain reliever for human muscle pain resulting from an exercise-induced injury. participants who ingested two grams of either raw ginger or heated ginger experienced reduced pain and inflammation. heat-treated ginger was thought to have a stronger effect, but both types of ginger were found to be equally helpful.🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #organicmamas #gmo #monsanto #fakefood #toronto #canada #organic #naturalremedy #health #wholefoods #momlife #ldnont #foodismedicine #mama #baby #vegan #vegetarian #hippie #gaia #boho #food #foodie #sports #arthritis #pain #veggies #natural #cancer #medicine #ginger

🙏🏻 smudging is an ancient art that is believed to have been practiced by native americans for centuries. it’s the name given to the ceremonial, daily act of cleansing and purification which uses a selection of herbs, often sage, which are bundled together with string to form a smudge stick before being ignited. 🔥

research has proven that burning sage removes a whopping 94% of bacteria in the air. when the researchers tested the air a day later, it was still clean. ✨

in addition to cleansing the air of unwanted bacteria, the benefits of smudging, and producing negative ions are many, including: 🔸increasing your sense of well-being and improving mental focus. smudging removes the debilitating effects of excess positive ions in the air in a way that’s been described as a natural antidepressant 🔸clearing negative energy. the smoke helps to change the molecular structure of both the air and energy, which produces a cleansing effect. as the sense of smell is strongly linked to memory and instinct, smudging is very effective for combating feels of anger, fear, anxiety, grief and depression. 🔸“nature’s antidepressant.” it seems that the negative ions produced from smudging offer serious antidepressant effects – so much so it’s said to be at least as effective as a prescription antidepressant without the side effects. researchers found fresh air charged with negative ions was an effective treatment and prevention method of depression, thanks to its effects on serotonin levels, similar to the way antidepressant drugs works. 🔸anddd... clearing the air. in addition to bacteria, smudging can help clear the air of pollen, pet dander, dust, mold spores and other potential allergens to improve allergy symptoms. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #organicmamas #nongmo #gmo #monsanto #fakefood #corporationslayer #organic #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourownmeds #health #nutrition #geneticallymodifiedorganism #wholefoods #smudging #sage #incense #purify #airquality #hippie #crunchy #boho #mama #natural #remedies #herbalmedicine

🍌🍌🍌 bananas are a staple in our home!! i always make sure to wait for them to ripen real well before giving them to the kiddos! my eldest ameela calls them honey bananas since they are much sweeter when over ripe! ✨✨✨✨according to japanese scientific research, full ripe banana with dark patches on yellow skin produces a substance called tnf (tumor necrosis factor) which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. as a banana ripens and turns yellow, its levels of antioxidants increases. these antioxidants in ripe bananas protect your body against cancer and heart diseases. tumor necrosis factor(tnf-α) is a cytokine, substances secreted by certain cells of the immune system that have an effect on other cells. this is indeed helpful in fighting abnormal turmor cells in body. research done on ripening bananas has proved that the levels of tnf-α induction increased markedly with dark spots on skin before the entire banana peel turned brown. the research concluded that the activity of banana was comparable to that of lentinan, a chemical immunostimulant that is intravenously administered as an anti-cancer agent. so, ripe banana can act as an anti-cancer agent by stimulating the production of white blood cells in the human cell line. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #organicmamas #nongmo #gmo #monsanto #fakefood #corporationslayer #organic #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourownmeds #health #nutrition #geneticallymodifiedorganism #wholefoods #foodismedicine #mama #baby #vegan #vegetarian #breastfeeding #hippie #crunchy #boho #breastisbest #cancer #bananas

Pumpkin seeds are known for their nutritional content along with their ability to get rid of intestinal parasites. roasted pumpkin seeds are not only a great snack, the university of maryland medical center recommends consuming pumpkin seeds, along with plenty of fluids to help both protect against and get rid of any parasites you may have. the seed doesn’t k**l the worms but paralyzes them, which in turn prevents them from holding on to the wall of the intestine as they commonly do during a b***l movement.
since pumpkin seeds are easy to eat with or without the shells, and make a delicious topping for salads, a garnish for casseroles, and can be used in breakfast cereals, it is easy to incorporate them in your meals or as a snack. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #organicmamas #nongmo #gmo #monsanto #fakefood #corporationslayer #organic #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourownmeds #health #nutrition #geneticallymodifiedorganism #wholefoods #foodismedicine #mama #baby #vegan #vegetarian #pumpkin #pumpkinseeds #detox #parasites

😂😂 #guilty.
there are so many new changes after becoming a mom- one of which i never anticipated is the amount of hours you will stay put- nursing baby. unable to reach for items while in process, your a*s going numb on one side/ neck cramping, poor posture... i could write a massive list! i also have posted all the incredibly blissful moments with my little one- instagram dopamine levels of sharing at 💯😂😅... but i have to share for any of my friends reading this that are about to have their first baby; the fourth trimester looks very different for all women. i had an awesome labor, even awesome pregnancy/ struggled extremely so with the fourth trimester once baby was here: particularly with breastfeeding. for 6 weeks i cried almost every night it seemedin agony, with cuts, sores, real injuries. i couldn’t figure out why my baby had a “bad latch.” i spent time and money on a lactation consultant to no avail. (things actually got worse). the baby would get fed no matter what, but i suffered so much, and had such enormous physical, emotional and even traumatic pain, my partner stayed up consoling me and helping to research during those first 6 weeks. i tried multiple creams, everything on youtube possible,.. the pain was so bad the water from the shower would make me cry. but i knew i couldn’t give up. and i wouldn’t. at exactly 6 weeks, i one day started to instinctually change what i was doing- positionally. his latch started improving that day- and each day got better and better. for new moms- postpartum depression can be very real. i don’t believe i was depressed but was and still am sleep deprived though getting better as time goes on. my advice to anyone in a similar situation is- keep going for as long as you can, don’t give up, you and your baby will synchronize ...(me and alvi no say he has the boob-tooth technology cuz of the drip reflex/ he cries and even if i’m in another room, my body knows it’s ready to nurse!) and you both will learn each other’s love language. 6 weeks was long, and i am very intense/ headstrong, however my partner’s support especially during long nights and crying spells, helped me to get to a good place. find support (cont.
