Yes, you can effect change in the world..

September 26, 2014

Dear Holistic Providers,

The world in which we live is rapidly changing and evolving.
As our population grows and expands, the need for healing and love also grows and expands. Traditional medicine is often beyond the economic reach of millions of people worldwide.
Complementary and alternative medicine has much to offer those who suffer. However, they must be made aware of what our individual and collective therapies have to offer. To that end I am proposing that you join us in creating a World Wide
Holistic Health Day.
For this day we ask Providers world wide to sponsor Holistic Fairs at your local schools, centers, churches, synagogues or temples. These Fairs can offer free classes, samples of your work, or sample products. By raising the level of awareness of those who can benefit from our services, we raise the Wellness Quotient of the World and help create a healthier happier world.
Won’t you please join forces with us and be part of this grass roots movement?
“ Be the change you want to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi

Thank you,

Lucrezia Pierro

Worldwide Holistic Day celebrates our oneness.

Everyday, people worldwide are desperate for healing. Sometimes, their need comes in tsunami waves of pain, as was the case in Japan and Haiti. Other times the cry for healing comes in the middle of the night from a sick child, parent or the elderly. Often, in many countries monies for treatment are not available. Often people have to travel long distances to a doctor or clinic, and often die enroute.
Such stories are heart wrenching. We often feel helpless watching these events, saying to ourselves, “ What can I do?” in the face of such a disaster.

It was on a night of such quiet desperation that World Wide Holistic Day was born.
I vowed then and there to develop a network of healers who would be willing to teach others techniques to ease pain and suffering and to initiate the healing process.

Worldwide Holistic Day was born from that vow.

As the grassroots organizer, my mission is to create a vast geographically diverse group of practitioners who would be willing to give one day of service on Oct. 2, 2012, or that first weekend in October, if that is more convenient. (Oct. 2nd is the anniversary of Gandhi’s birthday). On this day, like-minded people the world over will offer a free class, lecture, demonstration, workshop to teach others techniques that could be immediately implemented in times of crises or illness.

My goal is to inspire others to “be the change they wish to see in the world.” ( Gandhi) and to “love one another.” ( Jesus)

Education is the most powerful weapon in the world. It breaks chains, eases suffering and empowers people so that they may claim their birthright.

Here is What YOU can do:

1. Have a free lecture, demonstration, and workshop in your community. (at a church, school, and your home.) EVERYONE WITHOUT EXCEPTION who participated last year had an uptick in their business!!
2. Inform your local newspaper that you are having this day so you receive publicity.
3. Pass on this information to others who you know are holistic practitioners.
4. Post this on all your social media sites: facebook, twitter, utube, zynga..
5. Pray for people to be open and receptive to healing and sharing their knowledge.

Why Breastfeeding Babies Saves Lives

April 1, 2012

Why Breastfeeding Babies Saves Lives
http://www.womenshealth.gov/breastfeeding/why-breastfeeding-is-important/

Blogger’s note: Breast feeding is a natural, biological process that is beneficial for both mother and child.

Breastfeeding protects babies
Early breast milk is liquid gold – Known as liquid gold, colostrum (coh-LOSS-trum) is the thick yellow first breast milk that you make during pregnancy and just after birth. This milk is very rich in nutrients and antibodies to protect your baby. Although your baby only gets a small amount of colostrum at each feeding, it matches the amount his or her tiny stomach can hold. (Visit How to know your baby is getting enough milk to see just how small your newborn’s tummy is!)
Your breast milk changes as your baby grows – Colostrum changes into what is called mature milk. By the third to fifth day after birth, this mature breast milk has just the right amount of fat, sugar, water, and protein to help your baby continue to grow. It is a thinner type of milk than colostrum, but it provides all of the nutrients and antibodies your baby needs.
Breast milk is easier to digest – For most babies — especially premature babies — breast milk is easier to digest than formula. The proteins in formula are made from cow’s milk and it takes time for babies’ stomachs to adjust to digesting them.
Breast milk fights disease – The cells, hormones, and antibodies in breast milk protect babies from illness. This protection is unique; formula cannot match the chemical makeup of human breast milk. In fact, among formula-fed babies, ear infections and diarrhea are more common. Formula-fed babies also have higher risks of:
Necrotizing (nek-roh-TEYE-zing) enterocolitis (en-TUR-oh-coh-lyt-iss), a disease that affects the gastrointestinal tract in preterm infants.
Lower respiratory infections
Asthma
Obesity
Type 2 diabetes
Some research shows that breastfeeding can also reduce the risk of Type 1 diabetes, childhood leukemia, and atopic dermatitis (a type of skin rash) in babies. Breastfeeding has also been shown to lower the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).

Breastfeeding during an emergency
When an emergency occurs, breastfeeding can save lives:
Breastfeeding protects babies from the risks of a contaminated water supply.
Breastfeeding can help protect against respiratory illnesses and diarrhea. These diseases can be fatal in populations displaced by disaster.
Breast milk is the right temperature for babies and helps to prevent hypothermia, when the body temperature drops too low.
Breast milk is readily available without needing other supplies.

This from Wikipedia:

Groups such as the International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) and Save the Children claim that the promotion of infant formula over breastfeeding has led to health problems and deaths among infants in less economically developed countries.[3][4] There are four problems that can arise when poor mothers in developing countries switch to formula:
Formula must normally be mixed with water, which is often contaminated in poor countries, leading to disease in vulnerable infants.[5] Because of the low literacy rates in developing nations, many mothers are not aware of the sanitation methods needed in the preparation of bottles. Even mothers able to read in their native tongue may be unable to read the language in which sterilization directions are written.
Although some mothers can understand the sanitation standards required often do not have the means to perform them: fuel to boil water, electric (or other reliable) light to enable sterilisation at night. UNICEF estimates that a formula-fed child living in disease-ridden and unhygienic conditions is between six and 25 times more likely to die of diarrhea and four times more likely to die of pneumonia than a breastfed child.[6]
Many poor mothers use less formula powder than is necessary, in order to make a container of formula last longer. As a result, some infants receive inadequate nutrition from weak solutions of formula.[7]
Breast milk has many natural benefits lacking in formula. Nutrients and antibodies are passed to the baby while hormones are released into the mother’s body.[8] Breastfed babies are protected, in varying degrees, from a number of illnesses, including diarrhea, bacterial meningitis, gastroenteritis, ear infection, and respiratory infection.[9][10][11] Breast milk contains the right amount of the nutrients essential for neuronal (brain and nerve) development.[12] The bond between baby and mother can be strengthened during breastfeeding.[10] Frequent and exclusive breastfeeding can also delay the return of fertility, which can help women in developing countries to space their births.[13] The World Health Organization recommends that, in the majority of cases, babies should be exclusively breast fed for the first six months.[14]
Advocacy groups and charities have accused Nestlé of unethical methods of promoting infant formula over breast milk to poor mothers in developing countries.[15][16] For example, IBFAN claim that Nestlé distributes free formula samples to hospitals and maternity wards; after leaving the hospital, the formula is no longer free, but because the supplementation has interfered with lactation, the family must continue to buy the formula. IBFAN also allege that Nestlé uses “humanitarian aid” to create markets, does not label its products in a language appropriate to the countries where they are sold, and offers gifts and sponsorship to influence health workers to promote its products.[17] Nestlé denies these allegations.[18]

Blogger’s note: Contaminated baby products continue to sicken and kill infants worldwide. The Melamine contamination in China sickened and killed hundreds of babies. Similac recently made a voluntary recall of some of their products.

Before subjecting any infant to contaminated formula, water, and bottles,
Education about the benefits of breast feeding should be foremost.
