  1. I am 76 and I can't even remember the last time I was sick. I must be doing something right. I take no medications/drugs, I eschew vaccinations, and I only sporadically take supplements. In case I do need treatment for something in the future, I am definitely a proponent of holistic methods.
  2. There is plenty of published research if you care to search with an open mind. By the way, although Mercola often has some good information, I agree that he is a profiteer in selling his own products. I've found that the supplements he pushes are found elsewhere, and most often of better quality as well.
  3. That's your opinion. There is plenty of valid scientific evidence by others who warn about the vaccination craze. (Those who are not paid directly or indirectly by those who benefit billions of dollars, that is. The "repudiated studies" are repudiated by those who benefit financially.) As I said, do what you want to do, believe what you choose. When you disagree, there is no need to attack the messenger. I won't respond to any more attacks.
  4. Why quarrel with anyone? Do what you want without bashing the posts of anyone else. What some call "scientific evidence" others call "quack science" (or bought-and-paid-for "science.")
  5. I'm not going to open a can of worms by responding about vaccines for dogs. I've already gotten enough flak from my comments about vaccines for humans. I've gathered extensive files about vaccinations for dogs, including rabies. Anyone who is interested can contact me privately and I'll send them. I will say that except for parvo and distemper for puppies, I do not vaccinate my dogs at all now. I used to give a new dog one "combo" vaccination after six months of age, and then no more. Now I do not. Only one has had a rabies vaccination (before I knew better) and she has always has health problems--head tilt, etc.
  6. With regard to what Jim said, I'll add: The flu vaccines contain thimerosal (a mercury-containing organic compound), formaldehyde, Polysorbate 80 ( rare case reports of liver toxicity have been published), sucrose (table sugar), sorbitol, monosodium glutamate (MSG), neomycin, gentamicin, and other antibiotics, egg protein (sometimes). The CDC assures people these ingredients are safe. But the CDC and FDA also approve Big Pharma's drugs that kill millions of people. “Perfectly safe,” right? See http://pharmadeathclock.com/ I've never had a flu vaccination and I don't get the flu. My employee doesn't get the vaccination either, and he doesn't get the flu. A few years ago he told me the hospitals were filled with people who had the flu—and they had had the vaccination. On the subject of other vaccines: “Autism rates rise 30 percent in two-year span.” http://www.factcheck.org/2017/02/has-autism-prevalence-increased/ My opinion, and that of many others, is that autism is caused by the vastly increased amount of vaccines pumped into new-born babies. (Of course Big Pharma and “scientific evidence” will deny this.) See also http://www.cbsnews.com/news/vaccines-and-autism-a-new-scientific-review/ Helen Ratajczak, author "Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes--A review." She states that for years while working in the pharmaceutical industry, she was restricted as to what she was allowed to publish. "I'm retired now," she told CBS News. "I can write what I want." Ratajczak also looks at a factor that hasn't been widely discussed: human DNA contained in vaccines. ------------------------------------------ http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/11/03/right-vaccine-dosage-for-babies.aspx Even though the government acknowledges that vaccines have dangerous side effects, the CDC continues to recommend giving children 49 doses of 14 different vaccines by the time he/she turns 6. Most babies the in the U.S. get more than two dozen doses of vaccines by the time they are one year old. A new study finds developed nations, who give their infants the most vaccines in the first year of life, have the worst infant mortality rates. -------------------------------- Please don't shoot the messenger. I'm just expressing my opinion—and some facts. (Although some “scientific studies” will refute the facts, it's critical to learn whose payroll the “scientists” are on, either directly or indirectly.) I choose not to receive any vaccinations, but each person is in charge of his or her own health and the decisions regarding it.
  7. So do I find these plastic bags useful. But will gladly find an alternative to these plastic bags that take THOUSANDS of year to degrade.
  8. Actually, the electrical system still has a lot to be desired, but it is MUCH better than during the first several years I was here in Volcan. Same with the water system (IDAAN). Even with a 450-gallon holding tank, I can remember keeping 5-gallon jugs of water filled for when there was none. Now I can't remember the last time I was without water. And re internet, going from dial-up to 20Mbps with Cable Onda...well, that's definitely an improvement! Also a big improvement is the increased awareness of proper animal care by the locals--and the fact that many now dearly love their pets and care for them very well. Also grocery stores stocked with a much larger variety of foods, better stocked hardware and other kinds of stores. Long ago, I had to go to Panama City to find the kind of tile I wanted for my floors, kitchen and bathroom counters. And of course there are other improvements that I didn't mention. So having "endured" the past years in Volcan, I was content them and I certainly don't have a problem now.
  9. If you look at the ingredients in the supplements locally available...well, I won't buy them anyway. I've mentioned before The Box Shop in David, $2.50 per lb. plus a surcharge of 50 cents per box. I've had great experiences with them and I've never had a shipment of anything, including supplements, held up. Using The Box Shop has saved me a bundle, too!
  10. Messages to a group with only 44 names bounced--repeatedly. Mail Delivery Subsystem <mailer-daemon@googlemail.com> Your message to XXX@hotmail.com has been blocked. See technical details below for more information. "See technical details below" ...provides no useful information. (The XXX above signifies that I removed the username of the intended recipient.) Searching the web for an answer again confirms that "google help" is absolutely worthless. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks, Dottie
  11. On July 23rd, 2017, Dr. Tello sterilized 47 dogs and cats and we passed the 4,000 mark. In our little 11 clinics per year with only one doctor, we have now sterilized 4,017 dogs and cats! http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/107th.html We apologize that people had to wait longer than usual. Don Binder, who usually weighs the animals and injects the anesthesia, was unable to be there. All of our dedicated volunteers are excellent, but the ones tasked for doing Don's usual jobs were not accustomed to doing so. See my web page for an extraordinary procedure Dr. Tello did with a dog's badly broken rear leg in lieu of surgery. (And there are pictures of it in my photo album. The link to the album is on the web page.) But it turned out that the owners were unable to give the specialized care that the dog required, so I ended up taking the dog to Dr. Tello at the border on Tuesday for surgery. I went back to get the dog on Friday. Dr. Tello said the surgery went very well. He inserted a pin to stabilize the leg and he will remove it at our August 20th clinic. In the meantime, the dog is with me. I will give him the necessary pain medications and antibiotics, remove the sutures in a week, and then bathe him and give him a haircut. Bud and Marcelyn of Boquete are owners of www.chiriqui.life web site. They graciously came to the clinic in Volcan to do a podcast of me regarding the clinics. When it's finished, I will post the link on other various sites, explaining that. Chiriqui.Life is mainly about things-Boquete but there is other useful information as well. And that Bud and Marcelyn invite everyone to come visit. No need to sign up (free) unless people want to post or listen to the various podcasts. Our next clinic will be on August 20, 2017. Not even August yet, it is already half full. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who volunteers, donates, and brings their animals to the clinic to be sterilized. Together we ARE making a difference!

  12. I couldn't watch the video either. Why the HELL didn't the mayor take action against these people instead of expecting someone to file a denuncia?
