Mental Health Webinar Opportunity

Many, many people are struggling with mental health issues. When we are squeezed, such as in our current situation, sometimes ugly stuff comes out.

Dr. Eric Zelinski addresses such concerns often in his posts. In his recent e-mail, he shares an opportunity for a free webinar. Here is his e-mail:

Of the billions of people affected by the current “pandemic”, none have been more devastated than those suffering from mental illness. Suicide, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and feelings of hopeless are at an all-time high.
If you or a loved one are one of the 450 million people struggling from a mental health challenge…
Or, in particular, one of the 55+ million Americans suffering from depression and/or anxiety…
Know this:  you are NOT alone. 
Yet it’s tough to talk about.
So let’s talk about it.
Let’s talk about how HARD it can be to find effective solutions that don’t come with its own set of problems.
Anyone who’s lived with mental health issues or with a loved one with these issues can tell you, it’s a wild ride and it’s far from fun.
Experimenting with pharmaceuticals, trying to find the right cocktail that helps your condition can be both expensive and defeating. Not to mention, dangerous.
At Natural Living Family you know our mission is always to help people uncover the root cause of their problems and personalize relief. Not a one-size-fits-all quick fix pill or potion.
Because what if there are solutions that are unique to each person? What if you could back up these solutions with cutting edge science and data that actually measure results?
That’s precisely what our good friend and mental health expert Dr. Elena Villanueva is offering in her 5-Part Masterclass that’s airing completely F-R-E-E, staring June 7th  at 9 pm ET.
When you join Dr. Elena for The Mental Health Masterclass you’ll discover…
    • The foods that can cause or increase your anxiety
    • The real root causes of mental illness and mental health challenges
    • Why managing mental health is so challenging in this modern age
    • Medications and hidden factors that make things worse
    • How clients suffering with psychological disorders and neurological diseases are seeing real results, backed by measurable data
    • And so much more!

As part of this incredible presentation, Dr. Elena has included several bonus items you can print out and reference as you start your journey towards release from mental health challenges.

–>> Grab a bonus coloring book to help you destress and unwind. 🙂 

It all starts June 7th at 9 pm ET.

Join the thousands of other people who have regained their hope and peace by following Dr. Elena’s guidance…

We can’t wait to hear your success story.

 

As always, our hope & prayer is that YOU experience the abundant life.

Canning Class Opportunity

I receive e-newsletters from Melissa K. Norris, a home canning expert. Her most recent post gave invitation to join her canning class, coming up this Thursday. An excerpt from her mailing:

I can well over 400+ jars a year for my family but this year, I’ve already purchased extra jars and plan on making sure every single jar is full by the end of the season. If I’m upping my game I know this means more of us than ever before need to put up our own food.

I also know many people don’t know how or don’t realize the info they’re getting in a Facebook group or from Aunt Ellie Suzy May isn’t safe (I know this because almost daily I get messages from people asking if the way they canned something was safe and many times I have to be the bearer of bad news and tell them no, it isn’t).

There’s also a myth the only way to put up that many jars of food are to spend hours a day slaving over the stove and there’s no way people who work have time to do it.

This is simply not true and good news, I’m going to be sharing my system for getting jars on the shelf the safe way for free in a LIVE training this week!

Because the beginning of our harvest (aka canning season) starts for me next month, this is THE LAST TIME I’ll be teaching this live class any time soon. I won’t be doing any live teaching over the next month except inside the Pioneering Today Academy.

Don’t miss this last class, this Thursday, May 28th, at 1 pm Pacific/ 4 pm Eastern I’m teaching a FREE live class giving you my best tips on home canning including:

  • the essential supply list (you don’t need as much equipment as you think)
  • my system for making sure we have the staple home-canned goods we need to create meals for my family without spending a TON of time canning (and how to customize it for your kitchen).
  • what you MUST know in order to stay safe with canning
  • my TOP home-canned items to help create the most versatile meals
  • BONUS: how to can jams and jellies WITHOUT store-bought pectin


These always fill up fast, so snag your seat now!

Can’t wait to hang out with you!


Talk soon,
Melissa

Heal the World Guided Group Fast (shared from Robyn Openshaw)

My own words first (from Kathy):

I believe God is doing a great work in our country and our world, something quite out of the ordinary. I want to participate in His work.

After prayerfully considering, I am posting, (following), the contents of an e-mail from Robyn Openshaw (aka, The Green Smoothie Girl). She is organizing a world-wide time of fasting.

A couple of disclaimers before I share her e-mail:

  1. This is not affiliated with any religion or type of faith. If you join, and follow the devotions, you will expose yourself to prayers and beliefs of all kinds.
    1. I will say, right up front, that I am a follower of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. My intent in this is to be a part of a community coming together to approach the throne of God Almighty, asking for His direction, praying that our wills bend to His, that we, as His people, will humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways (1 Chronicles 7.14).
  2. Robyn sent this e-mail via her business. Her business is natural health, and she has researched fasting. She includes an offer to purchase her product, but purchase of anything is not required to join the fasting opportunity.

Please pray about this opportunity and obey as God leads. In any event, we may certainly fast and pray on our own. These are definitely circumstances that warrant fasting and praying.

Following is the full text of Robyn Openshaw’s e-mail:

_______________________________________________________

Group intention has extraordinary power at influencing outcomes for the good.

I know I’m not alone in wanting some positive outcomes, right now! We all want to do something to serve others, especially those close to us, to create change in this time of crisis.

That’s why I’m excited to be co-leading a Heal the World Guided Group Fast. Will you join me to combine our intention for healing the suffering and chaos in the world?

>> Join Today — it’s free!

This event is also a powerful opportunity to reset your health, recharge your immunity, and do something that makes you feel GREAT.

How to participate?

Choose any 3 days you want to fast with us, from May 14th to May 24th.

You can grab an easy, done-for-you Flash Fast kit at a big discount — it has all the organic mini-meals you need to do a modified fast (which has many proven health benefits). Or you can join us and do a water fast.

If you want to do an easy modified fast with the Flash Fast kit — be sure to order by the 7th to be ready by kickoff (May 14th), and by the 11th to jump in before the event ends (May 24th).

After you join, you’ll be invited to a private Facebook Group. Every morning at 9 am Mountain Time and every evening at 5 pm Mountain Time, a spiritual leader will lead a live devotional. Plus, you’ll get daily guidance and tips. You can participate as often as you want.

We’ll be sure to make this experience positive and joyful — as we come together in our mutual desire to uplift the hungry and the suffering, and send intention to our elected leaders to make good decisions.

So please join us.

You don’t have to be any certain religion or philosophy to benefit from coming together in this Guided Group Fast — without regard for differences in sex, race, religion, or culture.

>> Click here and I’ll sign you up, and send you an email with the private Facebook group.

You can decide which 3 days you want to fast.

I’ll see you in there! I’m sending so much love to you and those you love,
Robyn Openshaw

 

 

Free Online Canning Class

I’m sharing my e-newsletter from Melissa K Norris, as she is offering a valuable free class on canning:

Hey there,

It’s probably been on your to-do-list for a while… or you were planning on doing more of it than last year.

In light of current circumstances, you’re likely thinking about your food supply and pantry stock more than usual. It really wasn’t that long ago many families depended on what they grew and preserved to feed themselves but in just a few generations, this know-how has been forgotten or not practiced by most.

My grandmother raised a family through the Great-Depression and my father said if it weren’t for the food they canned in the summer, they would have gone hungry during the winter months.

But they didn’t, because my grandma spent her summer months canning.

I can well over 400+ jars a year for my family but this year, I’ve already purchased extra jars and plan on making sure every single jar is full by the end of the season. If I’m upping my game I know this means more of us than ever before need to put up our own food.

I also know many people don’t know how or don’t realize the info they’re getting in a Facebook group or from Aunt Ellie Suzy May isn’t safe (I know this because almost daily I get messages from people asking if the way they canned something was safe and many times I have to be the bearer of bad news and tell them no, it isn’t).

There’s also a myth the only way to put up that many jars of food are to spend hours a day slaving over the stove and there’s no way people who work have time to do it.

This is simply not true and good news, I’m going to be sharing my system for getting jars on the shelf the safe way for free in a LIVE training this week!

Specifically, this Wednesday, April 29th, at 1 pm Pacific I’m teaching a FREE live class giving you my best tips on home canning including:

      • the essential supply list (you don’t need as much equipment as you think)

      • my system for making sure we have the staple home-canned goods we need to create meals for my family without spending a TON of time canning (and how to customize it for your kitchen).

Gardening and Bugs

Is your garden in yet? Too soon? Wherever you are in the gardening continuum, there is always something more to learn.

One of my favorite people to follow is Chris from Joybilee Farms. She shares very useful and interesting information. In her post, https://joybileefarm.com/companion-planting-herbs/, she discusses natural gardening and how to keep destructive bugs out. She not only provides natural solutions to existing bug issues, but also offers companion planting ideas with plants that attract the bugs that eat the bugs you want to keep away.

Rx Drugs Linked to Alzheimers

On Dr Josh Axe’s website, Alyssa Lowery presents an interesting article about popular prescription drugs and their links to Alzheimers. Even better, she outlines natural alternatives to these drugs. See the full article here: https://draxe.com/health/drugs-linked-to-dementia/.

She begins: “Any time you take a medication, weighing the risks and benefits of the drug is a must. And now we must ask ourselves, ‘Is this one of the drugs linked to dementia and memory loss?’ Emerging research is finding disturbing connections between anticholinergic drugs and negative brain effects. This drug class includes popular medications used for allergies, seasickness and sleep, including diphenhydramine, dimenhydrinate and others.”

Medications she spotlights are:

  • incontinence drugs
  • muscle relaxants
  • narcotic painkillers
  • anti-seizure medications
  • Parkinson’s medications
  • tricyclic antidepressants
  • antipsychotic drugs
  • allergy medications
  • motion sickness medications
  • (mention to anxiety and insomnia drugs)

She ends with, “While you shouldn’t stop taking your medication without talking to your doctor, it’s worth a conversation to see if your medications include anticholinergic drugs linked to dementia. If they are, inquire about possible alternative options with fewer serious side effects, including natural remedies.”

Pilgrim’s Progress Movie

This animated version of The Pilgrim’s Progress is free online until April 30th You have to give your e-mail address to watch it.

Edited to note: After watching this movie, I must say it is NOT the same as the book. Of course, the book is always better. The script generally follows the storyline, and not nearly as much Scripture reference as the book. The movie adds additional characters, and some of them are very scary. Not recommended for young children or impressionable.
