    Live Healthy you and I: Aromatherapy Oils for treatment of Eczema

    in Music

    Choose Organic And Virgin Coconut Oil For Eczema Natural Treatment


    It is best to select coconut oil that is both organic and virgin, as use for a natural treatment for eczema.


    Organic Coconut Oil. Dry eczema skin can be a symptom of a highly toxic body. Hence, the last thing you want to do is to use a product that is not produced organically.


    Virgin Coconut Oil. Virgin coconut oil is made by using fresh coconut meat with little or no processing, or what is called non-copra.


    Most commercial grade coconut oils are produced from copra. Most of the copra, the meat of the coconut, is dried under the sun in the open air, where it gets exposed to insects and moulds. The standard end product made from copra is RBD coconut oil. RBD means refined, bleached, and deodorized. Both high heat and chemicals (e.g. solvent extractions) are used in this method.


    A fragrant smell is characteristic of virgin coconut oils. Copra-based refined coconut oils have no taste or fragrance due to the refining process.

    Healthy You and I: Spring Allergies Driving you Crazy, Here are some Remedy

    in Music

    Topic - Essential Oils for Spring Allergies
    [7:38:15 AM] Marjorie  Henry-Lawrence: Millions of people worldwide suffer from allergies. An allergy is an over-reaction of our immune system to certain substances such as dust, pollen, animal hair, synthetic materials, or foods. Allergic reactions can make you feel miserable and ruin your day. They cause all sorts of inflammatory reactions such as itchy rashes, dry patches, headaches, puffy or watery eyes, runny nose, or digestive issues.


    Luckily you can use Essential Oil for allergy relief.  Essential oils (EO) are nature’s miracle to ease inflammation and work as powerful antihistamine. So no need for synthetic drugs that can do more harm than good to your body. Fortunately there are various essential oils that you can use to treat a wide range of spring allergy symptoms – see the side panel for a comprehensive list that you can choose from. Essential oils that possess the following properties are the most useful, because they treat the various symptoms mentioned above:


    anti-viral
    immuno-stimulant
    anti-inflammatory
    expectorant
    anti-bacterial
    restorative
    relaxing
    calming


    Diffuse - Peppermint, lemon and lavender are cleansing oils, so diffusing these oils in your home on a regular basis will help support your respiratory system.  Pop Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint – about 4 drops each in the diffuser and let that baby go.  If I will be cleaning and releasing a lot of dust into the air, this is my go-to oil blend for the diffuser.


    You can also inhale the three directly from the bottle too – this works well if you are out and about.


    Topically - You can apply 2-3 drops of each oil and place it directly on the bottoms of your feet or at the back of your neck.

    I was just thinking…Is the Confederate Flag debate just another sideline to real

    in Music

    I am so sick of all of this…Nine people were killed at Mother Emmanuel African Methodist Church in South Carolina; not unlike the bombing of on September 15, 1963 murder of four Black girls in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama.


    "The 16th Street Baptist Church bombing was an act of white supremacist terrorism which occurred at the Black 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama on Sunday, September 15, 1963, when four members of the Ku Klux Klan planted a minimum of 15 sticks of dynamite attached to a timing device beneath the front steps of the church killing the girls."


    So what's so different  50 years later?


    We have to come to the understanding that this country and those who enslaved us, did not meant for us to live, thrive and prosper.  Now, people have signed a petition to have the confederate flag removed from the South Carolina Statehouse, but will this do any good or is it just a crumb in the mouth of a hungry man?


    Tonight we will talk about the coded language of racism White Supremacy.

    Live Chat: Father's Day celebrate the nation wide but How are they stocking UP!

    in Music

    The campaign to celebrate the nation’s fathers did not meet with the same enthusiasm–perhaps because, as one florist explained, “fathers haven’t the same sentimental appeal that mothers have.” On July 5, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation’s first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday. The next year, a Spokane,Washington woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation’s first statewide Father’s Day on July 19, 1910. Slowly, the holiday spread. In 1916, President Wilson honored the day by using telegraph signals to unfurl a flag in Spokane when he pressed a button in Washington, D.C.In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe Father’s Day. However, many men continued to disdain the day. As

    Live Chat: Charleston church massacre does Black Lives Really matter?

    in Music

    A Facebook picture may provide some insight into the political beliefs of Dylann Roof, the 21-year-old man who has been identified by authorities as the suspect in a shooting that left nine people dead at a Charleston, South Carolina, church on Wednesday evening.Authorities are investigating the shooting as a hate crime. The Emanuel AME Church where the crime took place is a historically black congregation. Witnesses have reportedly said the killer declared he was there "to shoot black people."Roof was arrested on Thursday. Before he was taken into custody, the sheriff's office in Berkeley County South Carolina sent out two photos of Roof, including one from a Facebook profile that bears his name. In the Facebook photo, Roof is wearing two patches that have been identified by many observers as the flags of Rhodesia and apartheid-era South Africa.


    Both of these flags represent defunct African governments whose regimes were controlled by white minorities. Both countries had racial segregation policies, and as a result they are admired by many American white supremacists.

    Tell me whats going on out here. We have come to a point that we as people go into the house of GOD and kill. Tell me please what is happening to us as a people in the world.

    xpressions of grief, faith and gratitude on Sunday filled the space of a horrific mass killing at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, as the venerable structure was again a house of worship.


    Hundreds filled the pews of the historic church in Charleston, South Carolina.


    "The doors of the church are open," declared the Rev. Norvel Goff during prayers. "No evildoer, no demon in hell or on Earth can close the doors of God's church," he proclaimed.


    They sang hymns, prayed and remembered the nine church members shot to death Wednesday night during Bible study.


    One of the victims was the church's pastor, the Rev. Clementa Pinckney. His seat behind the podium was shrouded in black cloth and uniformed police officers were present in the side aisles.


    Overcoming evil with faith in God was a theme throughout the service.





    "It's by faith that we are standing here and sitting here," Goff said. "It has been tough. It has been rough. Some of us have been downright angry. But through it all God has sustained us
