Rick Perry — The lackey of big pharma?

The dirty money connection: Is Perry a Big Pharma lackey?

One of the main Merck lobbyists, Mike Toomey, served as Perry’s chief of staff; in other words, a former man of top power for the governor now works for Merck, the same Big Pharma company that funded the campaign for Perry.

Perry used dictatorial power to mandate – with a lack of any public debate or approval — the mass vaccination of young girls with a dangerous drug that earned millions of dollars in profit money for Merck.

Parents were never given sufficient information on the nature, safety and effectiveness of Gardasil, yet Perry still bypassed legislature to sign an order that allowed for the thousands of girls to be injected with lethal chemicals made by one of his sufficient campaign contributors. Perry acted as Merck’s ace in the hole, and now he will be their man in the White House if the corrupt company has their way.

This article is not merely about revealing the medical madness that occurred under Perry’s reign as governor – it’s about exposing the truth about Perry’s deceitful actions. Share this information with everyone you know.

We cannot allow this man to become president by any means. Speak up now, or expect to soon be surrendering more health freedoms to a medical system that is owned and controlled by Big Pharma, all under the dictatorship of this deceptive tyrant of a man.

Nordic walking: Have fun while burning more calories

Urban Fitness Walking

Imagine the lone hiker, backpack laden with sleeping bag and bedroll, wielding a well-worn walking stick as she climbs the side of a snow-covered mountain. For centuries, trekkers have used walking sticks, partly as a defense against attacking wildlife, partly to aid in balance, and partly as support on long, arduous climbs. But in recent years, many hikers have replaced the single wooden walking stick with hiking poles.

There are hundreds of walking and hiking paths in Parker and the Town compiled a list for you here.

Pole Walking can be done year round in Parker CO

Held in both hands and used to distribute weight more evenly through the four limbs, wilderness hikers have found poles invaluable for safety, efficiency, and comfort on long hikes. What wilderness hikers have known for some time now is that walking poles are a great way to relieve pressure on knees, ankles, and the back. They encourage better posture and provide a total body workout by engaging the upper body.

Now, hiking poles are showing up in urban areas as fitness walkers discover the benefits they provide. Nordic walking–similar in technique to cross- country skiing–is a great way to get a whole body workout, increase oxygen consumption, and burn more calories than regular walking or even speed walking. This total body workout burns 40 percent more calories and consumes 25 percent more oxygen. Poles can be purchased at most outdoor sporting stores, along with rubber tips for use on paved paths

Walking Technique:

Adjust your poles to approximately 70 percent of your height and loosely secure the straps around your wrists. Hold the poles at an angle behind you so they propel you forward with a slight bend at the elbow. Use an opposite hand-and-heel motion as you walk–right heel strikes as left pole tip contacts the ground. And you’re on your way! Don’t be shy with your poles. Remember: You’re burning 40 percent more calories.

Why does Nordic Urban Walking burn more calories?

With Pole Waking you will find that not only does it make walking more beneficial but Pole Walking actually take less effort to use and is easier on our bodies.
  • We use less than 50% of our major muscles when we walk without poles – when we use poles we use over 90%. In doing so we spread our weight out helping to lessen the load with which we hit the ground by 26% – making a big difference for those people who have back, hip, knee, ankle or feet problems.
  • Not to mention using poles while we walk naturally aligns our spine and strengthens our core with each step – helping use to stand and sit taller.
  • We also don’t have to go as far or work as hard when we are using walking poles we increase our cardio by 20% and our calorie burn by Up to 48% without any more effort!…What more could you want? Oh! and you can do it in less time too -30min of Pole walking is equal to 50min of regular walking.
It’s one of the most beneficial and rewarding activities you’ll ever do. (Source : Keenfit)

Honey heals wounds when antibiotics won’t

Honey and Wound Healing

Topical application of honey is beneficial in the treatment of wounds and burns, according to a review article in the Journal of Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing (2002;29:295–300).

Honey is a highly concentrated sugar solution produced by honey bees, primarily from the nectar of plants. It is composed of carbohydrates (sugars), water, enzymes, amino acids, pigments, pollen, wax, and other trace constituents from both bees and plants. Honey has been used in the treatment of burns and wounds for many centuries, with documents describing this use dating back to 1700 BC.

A number of properties inherent to honey might contribute to its ability to fight infection and promote healing. Its high sugar content allows it to draw infection and fluid from wounds by a process called “osmosis.” Honey prevents bacterial growth through its acidic pH and through the work of an enzyme that produces small amounts of hydrogen peroxide. Its ability to keep the area around a wound moist and protected promotes fast healing and prevents scarring.

Honeys also contain components from the specific plants used by the bees in their production, and it is speculated that some of these components might further add to the antibacterial and wound-healing effects of certain honeys. The process of pasteurization, used to sterilize commercial honeys, destroys the enzyme involved in the production of hydrogen peroxide, rendering these honeys less antibacterial. Raw honeys maintain their enzymes, and honeys produced for therapeutic use are sterilized through an irradiation process that does not damage their constituents. There are currently two therapeutic honeys available: Medihoney of Australia and Active Manuka Honey of New Zealand. Both are derived from bees using the flowers of tea trees (Leptospermum spp.) as their source.

honey bee festival parker coThe Town of Parker is very invested in keeping the local population of bee’s healthy, happy and producing plenty of Colorado grown honey. Each year a Honey Bee Festival is enjoyed by locals at O’Brien Park just across the street from our office.  The Thunder Bee Project encourages education about bees and their role in nature, as well as replenishing the bee population in Parker. The Town of Parker currently maintains eight hives.The Thunder Bee Project has inspired the annual Honey Festival in Parker with honey products, demonstrations and education.

A number of studies have confirmed the antibacterial effects of honey in test tubes. One study found that different honeys had different levels of activity against specific bacteria. Studies on humans have reported that honey used as a wound dressing reduced infection, inflammation, pain, and odor, and promoted easy removal of dead tissue and rapid healing with little scarring.

Fifty-nine people with chronic wounds and ulcers participated in one preliminary study described in this review. The group included people with diabetic ulcers, burns, traumatic ulcers, gangrene, and other types of wounds. All had been treated with commercial wound dressings and antibiotics for periods of between one month and two years without results. Although 51 of the 59 wounds had been infected prior to honey treatment, all were free of infection within one week of starting honey dressing applications. In addition, inflammation and odor were markedly reduced and healing rapidly ensued.

Other studies have compared honey with other wound treatments. In one such study, honey was found to be as effective as, or more effective than, silver sulfadiazine (SSD), one of the most common topical treatments for burns. Fifty participants with superficial burns were randomly assigned to have their burns dressed with honey or SSD. Those treated with honey experienced faster reduction in inflammation and better infection control. Eighty-four percent of those treated with honey had satisfactory healing within 7 days and 100% by day 21, whereas 72% of those treated with SSD had satisfactory healing after 7 days and 84% by day 21. In another controlled trial, 900 participants with partial-thickness burns were randomly assigned to receive either honey dressings or other dressings. Honey was applied directly to the burns and covered with sterile dressings on alternate days. Those whose burns were treated with honey had faster healing and less scarring than those treated with other dressings. In the case of full-thickness burns, however, honey has been found to be inferior to other treatments.

This comprehensive review describes the enormous potential for honey as a therapeutic tool in the treatment of wounds and burns. It is nontoxic and inexpensive, and, despite theoretical concerns about introducing infection through the application of honey, no infections or other negative side effects have been noted. Further studies may help elucidate which specific honeys are most effective for the various types of wounds and burns.
