YOU can survive anything. That comes from the man in the know…Dr. Cass Ingram. The survival range? How about Poison Gas and Nuclear Exposure to Fleas…naturally! Dr. Ingram says it’s so in his book, “Life Saving Cures.” Dr. Ingram is a Physician and Medical Researcher who seeks the safest and natural remedies for a wide range of illnesses. He goes for the natural substances to work quickly, safely, and reliably. He actually told me on the “POPPOFF” Radio Program that these remedies saved his life, and the lives of his friends. And when he says natural, he’s not kidding. He refers to inexpensive stuff like Raw Honey, Garlic, Onions, and maybe a bit more sophisticated cures like Oil of Oregano.
Got a cold? Dr. I says try Oil of Oregano, Raw Honey, and Flavin-C to dry up that snooty nose. The little one has colic? How about Oil of Fennel, Oil of Oregano, and Oregano Juice.? And there’s that…we all whisper it…constipation problem. The good Doc says go for Red Grape Powder, Nutri-Sense, and Bromo-Zyme. Ladies, this is always a hot one we need to cool off…hot flashes. Dr. Ingram claims Royal Kick, Oil of Fennel, and Oil of sage will cool you down. Nerves got the better of you? Seek out the Wild St. John’s Wort, Oil of Lavendary, and Oil of Rosemary. You think I was kidding about the Nuclear Catastrophe thing? No way. Juice of Oregano, Juice of Rosemary, Kelp/Iodine, Oil of Cumin, Oil of Rosemary, Resvitanol, Oil of BayBerry, Oil of Sage, Selenium, Nuke Protect ™ and Folic Acid will help your survival. Naturally, Dr. I goes into how much and how often in the book.
From abdominal pain and Aids to Yellow Fever, Dr. Ingram has a natural cure. I did notice he mentioned Oil of Oregano a bunch of times. Seems he discovered the antiseptic powers of the Wild Herb and crude essential oil in 1995 as a result of a personal illness. This led to a grass roots movement. No pun intended. So his reference to Oil of Oregano refers to the high quality mountainous Wild Oregano. Also the neat part of this book is that half the book addresses the illnesses and the other half addresses the natural remedies and how they can be used.
Naturally, this book is not intended as a substitution for Medical Diagnosis or treatment. It was written by Dr. Cass Ingram to provide vital information in the event of catastrophes…especially in light of September 11 and the subsequent events. Unfortunately, that threat may be with us for a long time to come. Dr. Ingram is the author of some twelve books, including “The Cure Is In The Cupboard” and “Supermarket Remedies”. “Life Saving Cures”…How To use the latest and most powerful natural cures for the 21st Century…is available at Bookstores everywhere. It’s time we take responsibility for our own health and well being! LIVE LONG AND WELL!!!
No Good for the Goose... or the Gander
Imagine if someone rolled into a public park in your community, whipped out a chainsaw, and dropped a good-sized tree, which they proceeded to whack up and take home for firewood. Unthinkable, isn’t it? Yet other natural resources in our public parks are being ravaged in just as callous a fashion, and authorities do nothing to stop it.
Animals, particularly waterfowl, are being regularly poached in William Land Park. Yes, you read correctly, people are taking ducks and geese from Sacramento’s largest public park for their personal consumption, or to sell at market. When alerted to the problem, the city merely shrugged. Sacramento City Parks spokesman Hindalo Brima said, "We have no evidence to back up these (poaching) claims."
Really, Mr. Brima? What about the issue of fourteen missing geese? Where the flock of domestic geese at the park once numbered seventeen, now only three remain. Said Brima, "We do not track these geese…we don't know if the population dwindled because they went to another public park or pond." As domestic geese, they don’t fly, so what happened? Did they sneak across Broadway one night and set up shop over at Southside? Catch an RT bus to McKinley?
After some grumbling by Land Park residents, News 10 (KXTV) covered the issue recently, but even then, they gingerly tiptoed around the central question without ever addressing it: Who would be doing such a thing? Well, since everyone appears to be too politically correct to point fingers, allow me (I‘m not terribly big on political correctness-- just terribly big). Members of the Southeast Asian community are poaching these animals, a dirty secret that authorities have ignored for many years.
Sacramentans surely remember Kao Khae Saephan, the Laotian immigrant who was arrested in 1991 after knocking his wife unconscious with a frozen squirrel, whereupon police found several more in his freezer. Outdoorsmen have long protested the hunting practices of Southeast Asians, specifically that when they hunt, they hunt everything. Blackbirds, blue jays, squirrels, deer, bears, if it moves and has meat on its bones, they take it and eat it. This disrespect for our law and our environment has continued unabated for a very long time, in our parks, in our National Forests, on any public land where wildlife is available to be taken, and here’s the infuriating part: the immigrants are not to blame. We are.
These folks come from cultures where they’ve always been hunter-gatherers, and they’re just doing what they know. Our damnable, disgusting devotion to cultural sensitivity has turned us into such pantywaists that we no longer have the gumption to insist that the Southeast Asian community assimilate even this much. We’ve become so paralyzed by the fear that we may be branded xenophobes, or worse, racists, that we’d rather see our own laws and culture, which are clearly superior (and I have no compunction about saying that), replaced in a way that the vast majority of us find profoundly objectionable. Some may call this a simple “clash of cultures,” but as long as we continue to back down, and refuse to be assertive, even on matters where we know we’re in the right, it’s a clash our culture is losing. The multiculturalists have been telling us for years that no culture is better than another, and they couldn’t be more wrong. Ours is better, and we should be making an effort to keep it that way. Or would you prefer to forage for your next meal?
