Pain Awareness Month was created to increase awareness about the effect of pain and to educate citizens about the advanced treatment options available to help alleviate pain.
PAIN IS MORE THAN A SYMPTOM: Under-treated chronic pain significantly impairs quality of life, and can be severely physically, psychologically, and socially debilitating.
Did you know: Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.
During my personal 30 year journey with Noni, I have learned what Noni can do for pain naturally. Every day we get emails or phone calls from individuals saying that “applying your IcyHeat Noni lotion took my pain away”. Their amazement and appreciation is from the fact that an organic plant based product can address their pain.
The eye opener for me was working with Melody Toth at the University of Hawaii. Mel was the head sports trainer for the women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams. I first approached Mel many years ago when the local news station was reporting that their star basketball center was out for the season with an ankle injury. Mel had tried many different treatments with no success. I offered her our Noni lotion to try and the rest is history. After applying regularly for 10 days, he played the rest of the season. Working with Mel, we developed the IcyHeat Noni lotion and the Sports Formula IcyHeat Noni lotion with the added menthol crystals and camphor oil. She found that the added menthol and camphor expedited the response for quicker pain relief. The Sport Formula IcyHeat Noni lotion was developed with a little bit more menthol and camphor for even a quicker response for pain relief.
And do not forget about CRAMPS!! Ever wake up at night with a pain leg cramp? The Noni lotions take the pain and the cramp away in a very short time. Another use for our Noni lotions that we learned from Mel using on athletes at the University of Hawaii. I now keep a bottle of the Sports Formula IcyHeat lotion next to my bed at night just in case I wake up with a leg cramp from working on the farm. I apply to the cramp, the pain goes away and the cramp goes way and I sleep the rest of the night with no further leg cramps.
Noni is not a miracle, but as a raw food it feeds the cells of the body and promotes overall good health. I am a firm believer in “You are what you eat”. It is very important to feed the body a good healthy diet to promote overall good health. Noni Fruit Leather internally promotes good health and the IcyHeat Noni lotions topically are great pain relievers.
I have been an organic farmer for over 40 years. I choose the organic method of farming from observing Nature. From the dawn of time, mother nature has grown thriving forests and ecosystems that are healthy and sustaining without the need of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. I can remember in the 60’s when DDT was very popular and supposedly very safe. But after years of usage, science found that DDT was toxic not only to bugs but to everything including you and me. Therefore, DDT was finally banned.
My point: Show me a 100% completely safe pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertilizer. When a new chemical pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertilizer is developed and claims to be safe, scientific data starts to show the negative effects on our ecosystems and our bodies after years of usage. Currently GMO’s are the newest fad that I am highly suspicious of.
Let's think about this logically: If you are playing with what the creator made and he knows best! Genes put into plant matter to kill insects, etc and then we eat that plant matter – are you kidding me!!
I have shared in the past posts from the NEWS FROM THE CORNUCOPIA INSTITUTE, a private watch dog for organics that I highly respect. Here are two posts from their recent Newsletter:
What, Exactly, Are We Feeding Our Kids?
Conventional grocery items made with oats, wheat, and legumes are very likely to contain glyphosate, the main ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. Conventional farmers frequently use Roundup as a desiccant on crops, killing the entire field at once and allowing for speedy drying and efficient processing. From there, it winds up in baby food, cereals, and other pantry staples. The best way to avoid glyphosate in your children’s food is to buy organic, although heavy metals remain a concern regardless of the food label. Arsenic and lead were historically used as pesticides and persist in the soil.
Nestlé Sued Over “No GMO” Label
A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Nestlé for allegedly misleading consumers with a “No GMO Ingredients” label of its own creation. Lawyers contend the company’s label has no meaning, since products bearing the label contain dairy from GMO-fed cows. Several experts contend the suit has a difficult road forward, particularly since the proposed federal labeling law does not preclude products of animals fed GMOs from being labeled non-GMO. The very best way to avoid GMOs in food is to buy certified organic.
Aloha! Be Happy and Be Healthy!!!
