Ten Ways to Show Thankfulness and Be Healthy
Studies show that being kind to others and showing thankfulness is healthy for your body and mind. Here are ten tips to try this month to be grateful.
1. Create a Gratitude Ritual. This could be something you do for yourself or others. It can be giving away part of your time or money in thankfulness or maybe it's meditating on the things you are thankful for. Writing down what you are thankful for every week is a great way to start. Do this by drinking tea or doing some yoga for an added health benefit.
2. Send a thank-you note. You know, it’s nice to get a little note thanking you for something you did. You don’t need to send someone a formal thank-you card (although that’s a nice touch), but just a little note (or email) saying thank you for a specific thing the person has done for you can go a long way. And it only takes a minute! Do your writing when you are in the mood and you are in a positive attitude. Forcing yourself to smile even when you don't think about it actually lowers your blood pressure (also signing and taking deep breathes).
3. Give a free hug. OK, only do this when appropriate … but if you have a loved one in your life, give them a hug! Often we can go too long without showing our affection and gratitude, even to those who are closest to us. Don’t neglect this important part of your relationship. By “free” hug, I mean don’t expect anything in return — just give it as a gift of gratitude. If you give a hug to a stranger, be prepared to run very fast afterward. Hugging can release happy hormones and mood balancing chemicals in your brain. So it's healthy to give a hug!Read More

The reason I found this article below is because I have a chronic condition that only flares up with a weakened immune system and/or stress caused by a virus that will never leave my body (much like herpes or shingles). When I went to my holistic doctor he prescribed me vitamin c in large doses via IV!!! I was astonished and quite happy not to be given a prescription of antibiotics (that don't work on viruses anyways). This got me thinking about vitamin c, the studies done to show it's effectiveness and more research. Papaya leaf and fruit has over 100% DV of Vitamin C, so clearly I am back on my papaya leaf extract, because it's more concentrated in vitamin c than the fresh fruit. It's like my own little oral IV of vitamin c, which is way more affordable than going to the doctor! So here is the article on vitamin c relating to chronic illness and the use of vitamin c on humans and even your pets.

Vitamin C: Shingles/People like Herpes/Pets
Grandma told me a few years that she had had Shingles–and it was the most painful thing she’d ever experienced. The commercials running constantly on TV about Shingles got me thinking.
I’ve had chickenpox, and Shingles I found out, is caused by the herpes zoster virus, the same virus that causes chicken pox. What was Shingles–could animals catch it from people–and how do you treat it?
Like all viruses, even cancer, my research keeps coming back to the virtues of Vitamin C. There are links below to order the two types of Vit C suggested in the article below–liposomal (more powerful but more expensive) and sodium ascorbate. Vitamin C is something that we keep in the medicine cabinet at the Rescue Ranch year ’round.
It appears that animals cannot catch “people” Shingles itself (but I would be very careful about virus transmission any way) but according to Web MD, there is a small chance that unvaccinated people, who have never had chickenpox, could catch it and animals can catch a different form of the herpes virus. (More on treating “people” Shingles below with Vit C.)
Dogs can get–and transmit–something similar called CHV or Canine Herpes Virus. It is one of the diseases that Dr. Alson Sears Canine Distemper Serum can easily treat. Cats can get and transmit FVR–feline herpes–caused by feline herpesvirus 1, of the family Herpesviridae–which (Dr. Sears believes this could be treated with his serum but made specifically for cats, not the one made for dogs. Read more about Dr. Sears in the Canine Distemper article link above. If your vet wants to discuss the above with Doctor Sears, please email me and I will forward your message to him.)
Check with your doctor, vet and/or do your research on using Vitamin C and what dose to use for what condition (even contact Dr. Levy who wrote the article below.) If they don’t know/or don’t care to know, go to see a naturopath or holistic–doctor or vet. They are easy to find on the ‘net.
What I know from experience, is that taking smaller amounts frequently through the day/night, is better absorbed than taking large doses, adding up to the same amount, once or twice a day. I have found that to be the same for dogs. There are a few medical conditions in dogs and cats during which Vitamin C should not be used. Be your own/your animal/s best advocate!Read More

What a wonderful testimony from our customer!
L.M. (Illinois, USA) July 2013
I was refused as a kidney donor for my sister, as my platelet count was at an all time low of 96,000. I followed up with my family doctor and he confirmed it, but didn't really have any suggestions for me. I, more frequently, see a chiropractor that always looks for natural products for health and healing. After investigating he told me about Papaya Leaf Extract. I chose your product, as it is an organic product. I had a blood test done 2 weeks ago by my family doctor and I told him that I was looking forward to the results to see what my platelet count was going to be. At that point I told him that I was taking your product and he just gave me one of those Oh boy, I'm sure that's going to make a big difference looks. Well, after using your Papaya Leaf Extract (Pill form) for 4 months my platelet count is at 136. My medical doctor told me " keep doing what you're doing, it's working". I'm back to order 3 more months worth of your product to get my count up to where it is supposed to be. Only 14,000 more to go!
Thank you your product is making a big difference in my life. I should be able to get insurance now that my platelet count is up. Yea, I was also refused insurance when I went to get it on my own, due to the platelet count.
This is wonderful good news! Thanks for sharing L.M.!!
