To make your own non-toxic pot scrubbers just buy fine steel wood that is packaged in portions. Cut the portions in half and squeeze your own non-toxic soap into them when you are ready to use. If you add the soap before you are ready to use, the material will rust. You can also use baking soda for more scrubbing power.
You can spend a lot of time and money recovering from vertigo or you can just manage it yourself in a few minutes. All you need is a safe place to sit on the floor. This video explains the procedure and why it works.
Personally I have used a similar procedure on myself without instruction. I just sit on the floor and move with the spinning. Eventually the particles in the ear find a proper resting place and you are done.
It occurs to me that people who eat healthfully are constantly ridiculed, sometimes mercilessly. They live in a state of defense because of what they eat or don’t eat. The remarks range from snide to hurtful and the same people who deliver those remarks, do so relentlessly.
It’s curious that these people rarely take an interested in a healthy person’s diet or ask why you've make the food choices you do. They show no interest in nutrition or health. Instead they shun you because of your diet.
Finally, after years of abuse, I’ve decided to respond. When ridiculed about my diet I started saying, “I’m only trying to stay alive.” That stopped the banter for the moment, but it really was not the full story.
The truth is that most of us who care about nutrition got into a place of eating healthfully because of illness. We didn’t have a choice and most fought hard to hold on to those traditional and favorite foods that hurt our bodies. Given the option, most of us would not have made the change.
I didn’t really “get” how much those negative comments affected me until a local restaurant’s marquee said something to the effect of “No Gluten-Free Here; Not Now, Not Ever.” It was funny to everyone, but with some thought, I decided I was tired of defending my food requirements.
People don’t laugh at cancer or heart disease, so what makes it ok to laugh at someone who has decided to save their life with food? It was time to take a stand.
I emailed the restaurant saying that their sign was cruel and offensive. I explained that sick people eat healthfully to stay alive and when one is a celiac there is no option except gluten-free. I explained that everyone would rather eat pie and that we make food choices not to be different, but to control the pain and to heal the body.
There was no response from the restaurant. Maybe the message didn’t change anything, but it is past time to set the facts straight with the truth about those who live a healthy lifestyle.
In my eyes those who use food to heal themselves or to sustain a healthful life are the courageous. They are bombarded by advertising that directs them to pharmaceuticals instead of nutrition and they resist. They are disrespected by family and friends who don’t understand, but they continue. They live in a world that is different from others because they have values that they have chosen to respect for themselves.

The claims for bone broth benefits
are endless and true.
It will boost the immune system,
help the body heal, offers amino acids,
improves skin and nails,
reduces inflammation and will
fix a leaky gut like few things can do for you.
The nutritional benefits are restorative.
You should never miss an opportunity to utilize quality bones for broth.
Bone broth is not just stock or broth made from meat and vegetable scraps. The goal with bone broth is to extract the nutrients from the bone and marrow to collect them in the broth.
The only way to do this correctly is to use bones from animals that were raised without hormones, antibiotics, pesticides or GMO grains. You want to use an organic animal that was responsibly raised or wild game. You can make nutrient rich bone broth from any animal and you can mix bones from different animals.
The process of making bone broth is easy, but takes many hours of slow cooking. If you do not have the time immediately, package and freeze the bones until you can process them. Once processed, you can store broth in glass jars in the freezer until you are ready to use it. Some say you can repurpose the bones to make a second batch of broth, but with reduced nutrient levels. You can roast the bones before simmering to increase flavor, but it is not necessary. The finished product can be added to recipes, used for soup or taken as a tonic.
Making bone broth can be simple or complex. It’s your choice. Some recipes call for soaking the bones in a cold water bath with a small amount of vinegar to release nutrients. Others call for adding vinegar while cooking. You can also add bits and ends of vegetables, spices or fruits to enhance flavors. What you throw into the pot is up to you. There is hardly any way to do this wrong, but keeping additions pesticide and GMO free are important.
The recipe below is only a guide that will get you through until creativity sets in to direct you. Personally, I would go through the refrigerator and add anything that was ready to be used. Most of what is added will be discarded after the prolonged cooking time, so if soup is the intention, wait until after the broth is done and strained before adding soup ingredients.
Some like to keep it simple and develop a plain broth that can be dressed to suit the second use later. If you have an idea that you would like a more flavorful broth you can add bits to your hearts contend. Personally, I would never make broth without garlic to further enhance the immune system.
If you use a slow cooker for this process make sure it is not a product that simply meets FDA allowable standard for lead content. You will end up with a broth that is toxic. You will need a lead-free appliance. Finding a lead-free slow cooker might take calling the manufacturer as they are rarely labeled with this information. If the response is that the product “meets FDA requirements” that is not good enough. You want a lead-free product. Also, do not use an aluminum pot or a non-stick, coated pot. The chemical content will leach into your broth.

HEALTH AGENCY POSITIONS ON THE USE
OF MERCURY IN DENTISTRY
1. WHO Position on Mercury Amalgam Fillings as stated in October 2016
In 2005 the World Health Organization called for a “phasing out” of mercury amalgam fillings because they determined “there is no safe level of mercury in the body.” At the time they established that 240-300 tons of mercury was being used for dental fillings globally.
In 2009 a WHO expert consultant concluded that a “ban on amalgams would be problematic for public health and the dental health sector, but a phase down should be pursued by promoting effective alternatives; education of dental professionals and the raising of public awareness.”
The WHO Mercury Policy Report confirmed that mercury contained in dental amalgam is the greatest source of human exposure to mercury in non-industrial settings.
2. UN Position of Mercury Amalgam Fillings as stated in 2013 at the Minamata Convention
The 2013 Minamata Convention on Mercury was signed by 140 nations who shared the goal of protecting the population and the planet from the excessive and casual uses of mercury. The Convention covered mercury uses including, gold mining, product development, air emissions, water contamination and dentistry.
The United States, as a signer of the Minamata Convention has agreed to implement the decisions. The following is the excerpt from the Convention that covers dental amalgams and their mercury content:
Measures to be taken by a Party to phase down the use of dental amalgam shall take into account the Party’s domestic circumstances and relevant international guidance and shall include two or more of the measures from the following list:
3. FDA Position on Mercury Amalgam Fillings as stated in October 2016
The Food and Drug Administration believes in mercury amalgams because of their "durability and low cost." The potential risks stated include the fact that the mercury used “releases low levels of mercury in the form of a vapor that can be inhaled and absorbed by the lungs. High levels of mercury vapor exposure are associated with adverse effects in the brain and the kidneys.”
Still the FDA considers mercury fillings safe for adults and children of age 6 and above. They acknowledge that a fetus, the very young and possibly the breastfed may be more susceptible to the neurotoxin, but maintains there is no clinical evidence.
The FDA findings do not reflect the concerns or findings of the WHO or The United Nations.
4. CDC Position on Mercury Amalgam Fillings as stated on October 2016
The Center for Disease Control states that roughly 200 million restorative procedures were performed in 1990. They claim its use is declining due to a reduction in dental carries. They state that “minute amounts” of mercury vapor is emitted and agree that this can be inhaled, ingested or absorbed to cause “possible toxicity.” They claim there is “scant evidence that the health of the vast majority of people with amalgams is compromised, nor that removing amalgam fillings has a beneficial effect on health.” Next, they state the significant cost increase in US health care costs if changes were made.
The CDC cites also the limited scientific data when making these decisions, but does agree that both dentist and patients would benefit from education on the subject. In regard to amalgam filling materials, the CDC believes “the FDA should regulate elemental mercury” and that they should “require manufacturers to disclose the ingredients of these materials in product labeling.”
The CDC findings do not reflect the concerns or findings of the WHO or The United Nations.
5. ADA Position on Mercury Amalgam Fillings as stated on October 2016
The following is taken from the American Dental Association official site:

Sign the petition to have the use of mercury be abolished in dentistry by going to the top of this page and using the pull down for STRIKE OUT MERCURY. You can find more information there about the symptoms and diseases associated with mercury. Please share this information with other.
"Meets FDA STANDARDS" may mean less than you imagined.
If you are already metals poisoned or if you have unexplained illness, you don't have room for added toxicity. Buying goods defined as "Meeting FDA Standards" may not be good enough. The FDA allows toxicity levels in products and is not diligent in controlling these standards.
With increased production of low-grade toxicity in goods and ever increasing imports that are not stringently monitored, we have too much access to poison. The results show in unexplained illess.
A good example of this is the slow cooker. The FDA allows lead content in these macines which are meant to cook food over long periods of time. As they stay heated, they can leach poisonous metals into the food. The packaging that says "Meets FDA Standards" is not the one you want. The box that says "Lead-Free" is your best choice.
Anti-fungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-sore throat these quick pops are easy to make in a few seconds and do more to help the body heal than sugary lozenges. Keep the spoon next to the bed for those sore throat nights.
For coughs, the bromeliad in pineapple is said to be one of the strongest cough suppressants available. Eating it, drinking the juice or sucking on a piece will all work.
Honey, raw and unfiltered
Mix equal parts and scoop up onto a teaspoon. Refrigerate until ready to use.
This video gives a very clear visual of the range of mercury poisoning symptoms. While watching you might be incline to think, "Well everyone has those symptoms" and you'd be right. Mercury poisoning, although rarely diagnoised, is common.
Making contact with mercury, or similar heavy metals, is easy done in our environment. The possibilites come to us in the air, food, water, cosmetics, manufactured goods and endless other options, with the primary contributor being dentistry. Silver amalgam fillings are 50% mercury and have caused mercury poisoning in millions of people. Most dentist still deny the dangers.
The end of the video advertises a book which I have not read and am not attempting promote.
