What Kerri and myself believe regarding the body and health in general ...

A very good topic this , not only because of the controversial nature of it , but mostly because of the broad scope of the many aspects to do with it, including the results and reasons for all the other socially driven components within it ...

Before I get started though , I would like to make a few points very clear regarding what I have to say about this .
I do not go to doctors , I generally do not get ill so to speak, I do not take Pharmaceuticals ever !

Kerri and myself hold the same views on this and Kerri I helped many years ago to loose the need for Pharmaceuticals as well after many rather poor experiences from them.
I am 63 next birthday and without trying to sound big headed , I do not even look quite as old as I am either ?

I generally think that Doctors and medical people in general are not part of any so called conspiracy .
The Big Pharma Corporations though , I can see and have researched for years many topics to do with them and have found many reasons to doubt there sincerity many many times .

On a more broad note , I would like to say that we , do not have to go far or look too hard in this world to find educated , trained people that seemingly make stupid decisions on our behalf , that they believe deeply will be in our best interests.

Unfortunately , the Medical profession is no different in this regard.

The human body has always been from the beginning, a self monitoring system that has the ability to look after its self, given the right

environment and needs to do its job.
Having said that , no one would argue the need for the medical profession , where it comes to just plain care for many issues and including wounds , ect ect ...

In a very simple rather brief way, which is just about impossible to do BTW? this question of treating the symptoms and addressing the under lying issues secondly has been the way of BIG Phama for ever...

People in the medical professions are trained to do what they do the way they do it, mostly with the best intentions.

People are trained these days to follow our so called educated experts advice ?

People live lifestyles that are detrimental to life its self.

People do not feed the machine ( our bodies) what it needs often enough.

People suffer from a very wide set of immune deficiency issues causing untold amounts of inflammatory responses called many names.

People suffer from vitamin and nutrient deficiency's all over the world these days.

People do all of the above , find that they feel bad or get sick and then shove all manner of so called medicine in top of those things above and cause the rest of whats left of a self regulating machine to take an even harder thrashing and very often do not get better.

People can do some pretty nasty things to there bodies and get away with it , if they take the right path to feeding the machine what it needs to defend its self. You can drink and not die young , for example , you can smoke and not die young .
NOT that I am advocating anyone do those things :- )

The body has always been ready 24x7 since birth to defend against incoming toxins as long as the engine is in fine running order in the first place.

People cut themselves and the body heals it up.

People bruise and batter themselves and the body fixes the injuries.

People break a bone and the body fixes it. (maybe after a doctor re sets it )

People catch a cold or fever and the body then regulates by its self and you get better.

The key word above is " People " we are as I said designed to fix and repair our selves 95% of the time or so.
The other 5% , yes maybe a doctor is needed to help the body do it's thing ...

Myself and Kerri are surrounded by people , family and friends that are permanently sick or run down , that are on permanent medications of all manner and types.
This constantly reminds us both as to why we spend so much time on researching the human body and alternative , smarter health studies .

The bottom line of this very brief summary of what myself and Kerri do ..
We look at the body like a machine with a self regulating and self healing system built in that will take care of us without the help of even more toxic medicines being poured down our throats every day trying to crush a well working machine.

It does not have to be a conspiracy , to be just plain wrong :- )
and as I stated at the top , it does not have to be just stupid people that make stupid decisions or choices ..

Smart people screw things up in all walks of life and the Medical sector is no different...

There is plenty of great info from doctors on the net to back up what I just said in brief..
Here is one Doctor that may be interesting for you to go look at his quite vast Utube list of vids...
Dr John Bergman I have put just 2 of his vids below that are a good starting point if this is new to you ? .


cheers Steve and Kerri

A big question really ??

Living Off the Grid is a life style choice mainly.
It needs the right psychological approach mostly , it can be something that you might want to do? , but perhaps feel like you may not be able to pull it off physically? without loosing the plot , so to speak?

Living Off the Grid can be a hard choice for many I would imagine ? The efforts that are required in all aspects of this lifestyle , compared with living a main stream on grid lifestyle are very very different.

This life style not only takes quite a bit of effort , but I believe that it is more a case of psychologically having the mind set to go down this road to start with, as well as the right attitude filled with all the determination and endurance that this will and does take to successfully live like this.?

I think personally it would basically boil down to 2 main things ?

Can you handle physically the efforts required for this lifestyle ?
Or have you the resources to pay to have everything done for you ?






to be continued ...

cheers
Steve

Living off the Grid as a lifestyle choice, in our opinion, takes health and fitness into account. It is our responsibility to take charge of ourselves and ensure that we are as healthy as we can be.

We need to be fit enough to take care of everything that needs to be done around our property. We like to feel well and we do not like to go to the doctor for prescriptions.

We like to look after ourselves, by keeping active and by eating as well as we can, drinking plenty of water and using natural herbs and supplements. We like to eat a lot of fresh vegetables on a daily basis and we don't eat red meat very often (about once or twice a month).

We are not saints, although Steve claims he has a halo, we do like to eat take aways when we are out and about, but we do like to try and think consciously about what we eat generally.

Getting exercise is important. Steve works manually every day, so even though he is over 60 he is easily able to keep up with say the average 40 year old, and I am working on getting fitter. I have recently taken up yoga and am loving it.

Some of the supplements we like to include in our daily life are coloidal silver, apple cider vinegar, bi-carb and herbs and spices such as cayenne pepper, turmeric, cinnamon etc. I will write some separate articles on each of these because I think they are important to include in your diet.

Kerri.

Kezzeeens Kreations
Introducing Kezzeens Kreations

One of my favorite Off Grid things I like to do is to create my own lotions and potions.

I have been playing around with creating natural lotions and potions for about 40 years. We use them to help keep us healthy, and without the need to buy products which contain a lot of nasty unnatural chemicals.

I have been asked many times why don't I sell my products? Well now I do. :)

My daughter, Neen, a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and now a mother of 4 delightful children herself, is now following in my footsteps. Together we are now offering our natural homemade products for other people to share their benefits.

We are not a large company obviously and all our products are made by hand in our own homes and we use only the best ingredients. We create with organic, raw and natural stuff. We do not mass produce and the products may change as to whatever we have available at any given time. You can ask us to make something special for you if you like.

We are also Doterra Wellness Advocates and not only use their oils to help us in our daily lives, but we include them in our products. If you would like to know how to buy your Doterra Essential Oils at wholesale prices, please talk to us.

We welcome you to our new venture and hope that you find something that you would like to try.

Cheers
Kerri-Ann and Neen
