I woke up at 6am this morning with this on my mind. Having prior conversation with a friend last night upset me. This article is coming from my observations, experiences, marriage, and divorce. First off let's begin with your child or children are a gift from God. Secondly they did not ask YOU to be here. So state or vicissitude of life or fortune, here is a baby. Now the baby is here what kind of Mother are you going to be?
You love this child nuture this child, education, growth, strength, courage, family, understanding human differences. Now as you go thru life marriage, separated, single parent what legacy will you leave your child or children. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY?
I get so perterb with you Mothers that hold your child or children hostage for the money. Here are a few examples I have observed. 1. Don't pay child support, he don't see his child. (so now your child has become a commodity) 2. I need all that support check to pay my bills. (in the meantime where is the child's clothes, shoes, hair done, after school activities) 3. You can't keep a budget so your always using the child or children's money to make up for your mistakes! 4. Your child or children are at the age to work and help. (your oppportunity to teach them financial education. Instead you take most of their money earn, and then make them feel guility for wanting to keep any for themselves) 5. You make the child or children feel like a burden on you. (You made the choice to open your legs and become pregnant).
AGAIN, A CHILD OR CHILDREN ARE A GIFT FROM GOD! PERIOD!
So this is how you handle your gifts? What are you like on your Birthdays or Christmas time? You sit back and take a pause about all the mental anquish in this country today, and forget it begins at home, the root of the source.
Who doesn't want or need money? Using your children to get it, is a sad commentary for a Parent(s). Some folks will use their kids just to get a Welfare check or a SSI check. Use their names for bills or credit. (when they are grown wonder why they have no credit, it has already been burned by your Parent.) Karma is a bitch, and know one but God knows when pay day is coming OK!!!!!
Teach your child or children the value of money and how to use it. Not hold them hostage for your own benefits. Look at yourself, how are you living. Are you living above your means? Then take a course in basic economics help yourself, and family. We are not always taught about money when we grow up. We see Parent(s) paying the bills, but don't understand the process of why. If your receive child support or not the main rememberance is the gift that God has place in your hands to grown and nuture. Money will not give you that love a child has for you total and unconditional. Not understanding what money is gives them fear of not having enough. If know one has told you today that they love you, well I do!
Thank you, Lennis

This oil soothes your joints whenever you apply and massage this oil on the joints whenever they ache.
3. Home Remedies for Joint Inflammation
When we talk about arthritis, we are also talking about inflammation. During inflammation, there is increased blood flow and the chemicals are released into the blood.

There are a number of options that can treat joint inflammation like medication, rest, exercise and surgery depending on the age, severity of the symptoms and medical history. However, there have been a number of home remedies for joint inflammation.
a. Apple Cider Vinegar
Drinking apple cider vinegar or applying apple cider vinegar topically can help in relieving joint inflammation. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar into 8 ounces of water. You need to drink this water at least 2 to 3 times a day. Apple cider vinegar is also effective when applied topically. Add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar in a bucket containing 4 cups of hot water.

Wrapping an ice pack around the affected joints can reduce the discomfort. During the joint inflammation, keep your affected joint elevated on a pillow and you can also prepare an ice pack and wrap the ice pack around the joints for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. This procedure can be done several times a day as it will help in reducing joint inflammation.

This treatment is effective if done twice daily for one to two weeks.
Whenever we talk about natural remedies for arthritis, it is always essential that we take care of our diet. We need to have a low fat, low cholesterol diet consisting of complex carbohydrates. If having salads, do not exaggerate on the dressing. Just make it simple like lemon juice and salt. Avoid spicy foods and fried foods and excessive consumption of tea, coffee, alcohol or chocolates.
You will love to know some knee strengthening exercises that you can do to ease up on your knee pain…
Apart from natural remedies for arthritis pain and diet, exercise also plays a crucial part in improving the flexibility, strengthening the muscles and reducing the joint pain.

Body awareness exercises like yoga, tai chi can help in relaxing your muscles and improving the balance. But make sure you consult the doctor regarding the forms of exercise that you can do. Let the instructor know about your condition and avoid positions that can lead to pain.

- Why Cellfood is for
Introduction to Cellfood
Cellfood is a proprietary formula produced by NuScience Corporation in an FDA-compliant facility that is GMP certified by the Natural Products Association. Cellfood contains deuterium sulfate, ionic trace minerals, trace enzymes, and trace amino acids. It provides an unsurpassed oxygen and nutrient delivery system, and is absorbed quickly and efficiently by the body. Cellfood’s unique structure oxygenates and feeds the cells— cleaning and tuning up the body’s systems throughout the day. Cellfood is made from plant substances, and is yeast-free and gluten-free.
Cellfood is created by a proprietary process in which these nutrient-rich plant substances are held in a negatively-charged suspension of deuterium sulfate (an isotope of hydrogen). The result is a remarkable formulation which— by utilizing the same technology used decades ago to split the atom— actually ‘dissociates’ (splits) water molecules within the body by weakening the bonding electrons, and gives birth to cascades of vital, life-giving oxygen. This newly-born oxygen, combined with an array of vital nutrients, is carried throughout he body— cleaning, toning and building the cells and tissues hour after hour, day after day. Since our bodies are over two-thirds water, this oxygen and hydrogen source is virtually unlimited.
How does Cellfood work?
When you mix Cellfood with purified water or juice and ingest it, its proprietary water-splitting action begins the moment you take the first sip. This cascading time release of oxygen typically peaks within 8-12 hours, and then keeps working hour after hour. Cellfood releases oxygen whenever and wherever it’s needed— and if no longer needed, no more is released. And, its essential natural minerals, enzymes, amino acids and electrolytes are delivered simultaneously throughout the body on the deepest cellular level.
Cellfood is a miracle of electromagnetic design. Since Cellfood is colloidal and negatively charged— just like the blood and lymph fluid— there is a natural synchronicity between these fluids. Cellfood and its nutrients move through the cell walls easily, and its vital nutrients are absorbed and assimilated quickly and efficiently. And, Cellfood is a di-pole, di-base delivery system, delivering its nutrients to the cells and tissues under any conditions. (Di-pole means Cellfood is effective in any polarity range of the body; di-base means it’s effective in any pH range and will tend to normalize the body’s acid/base balance). Therefore, Cellfood is exceptional as an overall delivery system not only for its own nutrients, but also for any other nutrients or substances introduced into the body within the same 24 hour period. Notably, there is no known toxicity associated with Cellfood.
Importantly, Cellfood won’t create free radical damage. Free radicals— believed to be a primary cause of aging— are positively charged ions of oxygen. Since Cellfood’s released oxygen molecules are negatively charged, they seek out and attract these dangerous free radicals, joining with them to form stabilized oxygen.
- What is it?
CELLFOOD is the world’s #1 selling oxygen + nutrient supplement. For more than 45 years, NuScience Corporation has manufactured Everett Storey’s original CELLFOOD formula containing trace minerals, trace enzymes, and trace amino acids.
Cellfood – Free radical scavenger (powerful antioxidant)
Free radicals are atoms (or groups of atoms) that are missing an electron. These highly reactive molecules become even more dangerous in the human body when they react with and damage other important cellular components like DNA. Antioxidants are directly responsible for the prevention of cellular damage by neutralizing and eliminating free radicals. In a recent study, CELLFOOD was shown to decrease excess free radical activity by up to 27%.
Cellfood – Helps detoxify the body and balance pH
CELLFOOD’s colloidal and ionic formula has a negative charge (as measure by Zeta potential testing). This negatively charged solution (like blood and lymph) allows for the rapid absorption and assimilation of nutrients. This process enables the body to more efficiently eliminate toxins and balance pH.
Cellfood – Athletic performance enhancement
In addition to the numerous general health benefits, CELLFOOD has now become the supplement of choice for many professional athletes. In a study conducted at the University of Pretoria, CELLFOOD was shown to increase oxygen uptake (VO2 Max), increase ferretin (iron storage), and decrease lactic acid accumulation (muscular fatigue).
Cellfood – Ingredients
CELLFOOD is made from the finest substances. CELLFOOD does not contain any ingredients that are on the “list of banned substances” for professional and amateur athletic competitions and associations. CELLFOOD is non-addictive, non-invasive, and completely non-toxic when taken as directed.

Ever heard the saying, don’t shoot the messenger? And yet every time Mercury goes retrograde, do we not shoot him down? Do we not blame him for the truth and illumination that we are responsible for?
“Mercury has very special role of translating wisdom and great personal awareness. He travels between humans and gods, darkness and light, and remains just the messenger not the judge.” – River Rain
Mercury has already started slowing down and is preparing to enter into retrograde on December 19th, 2016 until January 8th, 2017.
Entering a new year on a Mercury retrograde means that things are going to be slow and contemplative during the first part of next year. This may be because 2016 has been a heavy year of releasing for many people.
In order to process and start the new chapter that 2017 offers, it seems that the Universe is givings us some downtime in order to make sense of where we are headed to next.
Many people fear Mercury Retrograde, but it is actually a very powerful and transformative time. A time when we can clear away the fog and see the truth of our soul.
Mercury is the Divine messenger of the gods and rules over communication and the throat chakra. When Mercury is operating as normal, he works alongside the amazing light of the Sun. But when Mercury goes retrograde, he travels into the darkness of the underworld, unearthing secrets and old pains of the past.
It is through this process that Mercury is able to bring truth, awareness, understanding and illumination to the surface.
Mercury needs to go into the underworld because when he is in there, he fishes out old thoughts, beliefs and conversations that need to be cleansed and purified.
Any delays that Mercury brings us during his retrograde are therefore always for a higher purpose. Perhaps it is Mercury’s aim to make us stop, look and really listen to all that is going on around us.
Perhaps the delays or the confusion that Mercury brings when in retrograde is trying to teach us or show us something deeper.
In fact, if you feel negatively impacted by Mercury Retrograde, it could be a sign that you need to look into your life and assess what is really going on.
What are you skimming over? What do you need to pay attention to?
In December, Mercury is going to retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is practical and stable, which means that Mercury is going to be clearing out our closets in a very practical and matter of fact way. There will no room for emotion, instead Mercury is going to clear out our throat chakra with a certain air of disconnect.
This is great, because in many ways it tones down any emotional reactions and allows us to see things from a more grounded point of view.
Practices like journalling, creative activities and exercise are also going to be great outlets during this retrograde period. In fact, anything you can do to get your energy moving may help you to shift and see things from a new perspective.
During a Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn, we are encouraged to take responsibility for what we choose to express and how we choose to express it. We are also encouraged to clear out and release things that we may have been clinging on to emotionally.
2016 brought us many retrograde planets and perhaps it is only now that we are starting to make sense of all of this. Retrograding planets allow us to dig below the surface in order to uncover hidden truths and hidden treasures.
2016 being a year of endings, required us to do this work so we can enter into the new chapter of 2017 with clarity, purpose and direction.
This final retrograde for 2016 is really going to help cement everything that you have been working on this year. So embrace it.
Allow Mercury Retrograde energy to wash over you like the powerful teacher that it is. Who knows, it may just change your mind about this often misunderstood and feared aspect forever.
