Reorganizing my life

To any of you who might still be visiting my blog during my recent spurts of absenteeism...I'm sorry that I've been making you look at the same old posts for the past few weeks! :op To be honest, I just haven't had the time to write...or when I have had time, I've been tired and rather "brain dead" from long hours at work. No one wants to read what I would write in that situation!

I have reason to hope that I may soon have more brain power for writing! My husband and I have been discussing my quitting my current job so that I can start putting many more hours towards getting a home business off the ground. I cannot even begin to describe how happy and excited that thought makes me! No more 2-3 hours a day commuting in HORRIBLE Houston traffic. No more sitting at a desk, dreaming about being able to take better care of my husband and my home and spend more time writing and creating a little business of my own.

Micah believes that he can get far enough along in his career certifications and training in the next month to begin covering the basic necessities himself. He thinks I will be able to quit by New Years. I told him that I would sell the car and live on beans and rice if that's what it takes!:o) I want to help us financially--but I'm simply not willing to sacrifice the most important things in life to do so. For a number of years, I have dreamed of being able to make money from home...but I have found that between my 11-12 hours away everyday, spending a little time with Micah in the evenings, and with us trying to keep the house up (at least up to health department standards:o), I have not had time to begin anything on the side. I don't think anything will get started until I have at least a few hours every day to devote to it. I am SO thrilled that this may soon be a reality!

I am so thankful for a husband who is willing to sacrifice so that I can have my dream. I hope to repay him by being diligent with my time, making a beautiful home for him to return to everyday, and working hard to bring in money to help him pay off our debts as soon as possible. We are praying every night for God's direction and provision as we make this transition.

Yay, Erin!! Oh, I hope this all works out for you, in the time frame you would like. To be able to quit by New Years and start up your own home business would be so awesome! Please keep us all posted as things progress toward reaching your goals! :)

Thank you! It's a faith-building experience as we pray and try to work out the details of how we can pull this off:o)

Another reason why we are praying so hard that this works out: My office is moving next week to a new location that would add even more time to my commute. Unless I leave at about five-thirty in the morning to avoid most of the traffic, we're looking at probably a two hour trip each way. That's just not going to work, I can tell you that!;o)

I'll post more on this as we know more.

Ohh...and I am NOT an early morning person:o)

I can relate to not being a morning person, that's for sure!! I certainly don't envy your crazy commute. I am so glad not to live near a city. :) Although it does have its drawbacks, too, since we have to drive a ways to get to many good stores . . .

Back to the morning person thing, though . . . having an early rising child has sort of forced me to be one, but now that I'm pregnant (and therefore more tired) I am SO thankful for the days when he chooses to sleep in a bit!! :)

Aspartame


If you drink Diet Coke & Diet Pepsi, you might find this an interesting read...

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FOUNDATION & FDA Are SUING
For COLLUSION With MONSANTO
By: Betty Martini

I have spent several days lecturing at the World Environmental Conference on "Aspartame: Marketed as 'NutraSweet', 'Equal' & 'Spoonful'. In the keynote address by the EPA. They announced that there was an epidemic of Multiple Sclerosis, Systemic Lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the United States. I explained I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.

When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in Aspartame coverts to Formaldehyde and then to Formic Acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of Fire Ants.) The Methanol toxicity mimics Multiple Sclerosis; thus, people were being diagnosed with having Multiple Sclerosis in error. The Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence, where Methanol toxicity is.

In the case of Systemic Lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as Multiple Sclerosis especially in Diet Coke & Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with Methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink 3 to 4 12-oz. cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of Systemic Lupus, which is triggered by Aspartame, the victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. The victim continues its use aggravating the Lupus to such a degree, that sometimes it becomes life threatening.

When we get people off the Aspartame, those with Systemic Lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we cannot reverse this disease. On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (when in reality, the disease is Methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of Tinnitus.

During a lecture I said, "If you are using Aspartame [NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.] and you suffer from Fibromyalgia symptoms, Spasms, Shooting Pains, Numbness in your Legs, Cramps, Vertigo, Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitus, Joint Pain, Depression, Anxiety Attacks, Slurred Speech, Blurred Vision, or Memory loss, you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!"

People were jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got this! Is it reversible?" It is rampant. Some of the speakers at my lecture were suffering from many of these symptoms.

In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told us that their Sugar industry is adding Aspartame! He continued by saying that one of the industry leader's son could no longer walk due in part to product usage! We have a very serious problem.

A stranger came up to Dr. Espisto, (one of my speakers) and myself and said, "Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with MS?"During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke drinkers, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence.

Here is the problem. There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was originally included as a sweetener in 100 different products. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail. Nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!

At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind. The Methanol in the Aspartame converts to Formaldehyde in the retina of the eye.

Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as Cyanide and Arsenic - DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill, but it is killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.

Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe seizures. This drug changes the Dopamine level in the brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug also causes birth defects. There is absolutely no reason to take this product.

It is NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!
The Congressional record said, "It makes you crave Carbohydrates &will make you FAT." Dr. Roberts stated that when he got patients off aspartame, their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The Formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.

Aspartame is especially deadly for Diabetics . All physicians know what Wood Alcohol will do to a Diabetic. We find that physicians believe that they have patients with Retinopathy, when in fact, it is caused by the Aspartame. The Aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many have died.

People were telling us at the conference of the American College of Physicians that they had relatives that had switched from Saccharin to an Aspartame product and how that relative had eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under control; thus the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually coma and death.

Memory loss is due the fact that Aspartic Acid and Phenylalanine are Neurotoxic without the other Amino Acids found in protein, thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, a prominent neurosurgeon of Jackson, Mississippi, said, "The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees." Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled EXCITOTOXINS: The Taste That Kills , (Health Press 1-800-643-2665).

Dr. H. J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on Aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells how Aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years of age with Alzheimer's Disease.

Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be writing a position paper with some case histories and will post it on the Internet.

According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, "We are talking about a plague ofneurological diseases caused by this deadly poison."

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed. He said, "His Diabetic patients presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss." At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant (the Phenylalanine in Aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes Serotonin, which causes Manic Depression, Panic Attacks, Rage and Violence)

Just before the Conference, I received a fax from Norway asking for a possible antidote for this poison because they are experiencing so many problems in their country. This "poison" is now available in 90 PLUS countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the conference from different nations who have pledged their help. We ask that you help too.

Print this article out and warn everyone you know. Take anything that contains Aspartame back to the store. Take the "NO ASPARTAME TEST" and send us your case history. I assure you that MONSANTO the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Medical Association, American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians.

The New York Times, November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO.

How bad is this? We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the product. The child was having Grand Mal seizures every day. The mother called her physician, who called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are still trying to convince the mother that the Aspartame is causing the seizures. Every time we get someone off of Aspartame, the seizures stop. If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up against.

There are 92 documented symptoms of Aspartame, from coma to death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the Aspartame destroys the nervous system. Aspartame Disease is partially the cause to what is behind some of the mystery of the Desert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the consumption of Aspartame product.

Several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember heat can liberate the Methanol from the Aspartame at 86 degrees F) Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree F Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets. The servicemen and women drank them all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to Aspartame poisoning.

Dr. Roberts says "Consuming aspartame at the time of conception can cause birth defects." According to Dr. Louis Elsas, Pediatrician and Professor of Genetics, at Emory University, in his testimony before Congress, " The Phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta causing mental retardation. In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumors, phenylalanine breaks down into DXP (a brain tumor agent.) When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on Aspartame, one physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said, "When they remove brain tumors, they have found high levels of Aspartame in them."

Although Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for Diabetics, has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA for years, the FDA has outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO. {YIKES!!, what a scam!}

If it says "SUGAR FREE" on the label - DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children of the dangers of Aspartame. The bill would have also instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public.

Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope to have the help of several world leaders. Again, please help us, too. There are a lot of people out there who must be warned, please let them know this information.
