The Barrel, The Ladder & The Wall

thebarrelBy: Jerry Petermann, 2016

Curious title? Yes, but illustrative for our discussion.

Often an analogy serves best to make a point. We will explore three.

The Barrel
In the world of pickles and whisky, a wooden barrel is the ideal storage vessel. Some people even advertise how their liquor or beer is aged in oak barrels. Laudable, as they even claim to make their barrels for that very purpose.

Now, in the construction of a well-made wooden barrel, the pieces known as staves, must be crafted with perfection to make a liquid tight construction. Even these “perfect” staves must be held in place by some external force; metal bands, to maintain integrity. Should some other external force be placed on the barrel, in most cases these bands will resist catastrophic failure. However, should an external force be applied to a single stave, the entire barrel might collapse, as together all are strong but individually, they are not.

The human body’s complex systems are rather like a barrel of wooden staves held together with “bands” of proper diet, exercise, mental well-being, hydration, supplementation and rest.

Live Life With PURPOSE

live life with purposeBy Jerry Petermann, 2016

It happened again! Once more I sat quietly listening to a friend go on and on about a trip to “The Doctor”.

Well, this dear friend was most certainly not referring to my virtual superhero, “The Doctor” on the British TV series Dr. Who. At least that fellow, if asked his name, can truthfully say, “I’m The Doctor”. Of course, all us fans know him to be a time-traveler of the entire universe and the very last of The Time Lords. But, that aside, he deserves the title; The Doctor.

I have a hard time with our virtual, God-like adoration of medical professionals in the USA; especially since recent statistics were made public on the ABC Evening News They stated that between 200,000 and 400,000 people die each year from medical mistakes in America. Let’s put that in prospective: at the 400,000 number it would be like hearing the news that 3 airliners with over 330 people on board each craft crashed every day for a whole year. Now, do you think that industry would even survive 1 month?

“The Doctor, Really? Well, bite my tongue, again!”


coffeeBy Jerry Petermann

The other day a friend mentioned during morning coffee that a local man’s daughter who had become a successful doctor in San Antonio, TX had suffered a major heart attack. I winced. This was a girl who had been in high school with my own daughter. It only seemed to have been just a few years ago…

I have coffee two or three days a week at a local café at 4:30 A.M. with my friends of the R.O.M.E.O. Club…that’s Retired Old Men Eating Out. We, as every other morning coffee group of retired people across the
country, solve the problems of the community, the nation and the world. It’s press coverage we lack to get these solutions implemented…no matter.
The heart attack of this young woman again struck home, too close to home. Last week, we buried our founding member’s son-in-law (same age as the doctor) who had passed from advanced cancer (took him in 10 months). Yet, each of us are fairly healthy. We all garden and take life a little less serious – less stressful, most of the time.

Do you eat healthy, take vitamins and not  seeing the results you feel you should? 

Do you you worry you are not absorbing the quality minerals you take in? Things that could lead to degenerarive bones disease or worse? 

Maybe pH Balancing with Optimal pH could make that difference…

Make alkaline water easy and a pH balanced diet quick and as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4 drops 

The Benefits of Iodine

Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal.
They need Tri-Iodine®.

Why Increase Iodine Intake?
• Healthy Metabolism and Weight Management Support†
• Increased Energy
• Improved Libido
• Breast Health
• Prostate Health
• Detoxification
• Increased Immune Function*
Tri-Iodine provides the three beneficial forms of iodine you need most.

Tri-Iodine contains three beneficial forms of iodine to nourish multiple body systems. Three forms are included because different tissues in the body prefer different forms. For example, your thyroid tissue absorbs iodine best as potassium iodide, while breast tissue takes up iodine in the
form of molecular iodine. Additionally, there is evidence that using sodium iodide enhances absorption of the other forms.

Antibiotic Gloom and Doom
Over and over we are told the world is ending for modern medicine regarding the fight against germs and viruses of every form. We now know people are dying in hospitals from flesh-eating bacteria and the elderly are succumbing from upper respiratory infections by the hundreds of thousands.

What can be done? Hand-wringing… for sure. Research…yes. Money, money, money…you bet!

What if all of this was simply due to patents and control of the marketplace, not medicine? It’s true. Let me explain.

In ancient Egypt, batteries were produced to provide electricity for electroplating jewelry.

Sadness you Just can’t shake? Maybe you need Magnesium 

From the Health Ranger

A breakthrough nutritional study conducted at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont and published in PLoS ONE has found that just 248mg of magnesium per day leads to an astounding reversal of depression symptoms in study subjects.

“New clinical research results show magnesium is effective at addressing symptoms and is safer and easier on the wallet than prescription therapies,” reports Science Daily, echoing the reporting of Natural News from over a decade ago. Today, even mainstream science is now confirming that magnesium is a safe, affordable and effective treatment for depression.

What’s really astonishing about all this is that while dangerous pharmaceuticals are bankrupting our nation and causing our health care system to collapse under the weight of out-of-control costs, magnesium can treat and prevent depression for mere pennies a day. Just a quarter of a gram of magnesium is all that’s necessary, and it costs less than 10 cents a day.

No Need for Cannabinoids when you have Copaiba

Copaiba Oil is unique because it reacts with our endocannabinoid system, which helps our body manage anxiety, stress and inflammation.
“Beta-caryophyllene (BCP) is a sesquiterpene compound found in hundreds of different plant species, and it has recently been recognized for its unique ability to interact with CB2 but not CB1 receptors.3 Thus the alleged benefits of CBD or THC can be obtained without the psychoactive effects by using a product containing BCP. doTERRA’s new Copaiba essential oil has the highest BCP content of any oil, around 55% as confirmed by GC/MS analysis of doTERRA’s own Copaiba oil.”
