Cancer Won’t Thrive in an Alkaline Body

communicating for health and wellness

by Aggie Perilli

This holiday season I am most grateful for my health and the health of my family. Increasingly I hear of loved ones, or their loved ones, who have cancer. Privately, I offer to send information others have found healing. It’s the same information I offered my neighbor a few years ago, when she realized chemotherapy could be lethal for her.

Careful not to overstep friendly boundaries, I suggested my neighbor balance her body’s pH and restore her alkalinity.

She was unclear what that meant exactly.

Can You Buy Love? Adopt a Pet

by Aggie Perilli

The $295 my husband Michael and I paid to adopt a 15-pound Poodle Bichon Frise named Raphie from the Last Chance Ranch Animal Rescue in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, covered the cost of vaccinations, deworming, neutering, and medication for the prevention of kennel cough and other infections. That’s what our veterinarian charges for vaccinations alone.

The Last Chance Ranch had rescued Raphie from a high-kill shelter, where he lay in a fetal position in a far corner of his cage.

When the Last Chance Ranch’s Barbara Maroney led Raphie into the lobby to meet Michael and me, the skeletal Poochon dropped belly-up at our feet.

Campaign Nonviolence Advances 1,600+ Peacemaking Actions

Over 1,600 marches, prayer vigils, festivals, and other events took place from September 16 to 24, 2017, across the United States and worldwide, as part of Campaign Nonviolence’s fourth annual “Week of Actions.” These actions culminated on September 21, the International Day of Peace. Thousands participated in this unprecedented grassroots campaign to build a culture of peace free from racism, war, poverty, and environmental destruction.

Said Dr. Ken Butigan, cofounder of Campaign Nonviolence and professor at DePaul University, “People across the United States rallied together to end violence and injustice and begin peacemaking. Our unified voices are urging policy shifts that advance peace, justice, and environmental restoration and protection.”

Nonviolence can be a safe, effective and lasting way to defeat injustice, but like any other science it takes knowledge, courage and determination.

Let Nature Be Natural: Green Lawn Care

Communicating with Mother Nature

The following post was written by Dr. David Dobbins, Emeritus Professor of Plant Anatomy and Development, Morphology, and Horticulture at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. Thank you David for describing how regenerative organic landscapers and homeowners help restore and protect Mother Nature who sustains all life. – Aggie Perilli

By Dr. David Dobbins

I grew up in the city of Indianapolis, with little exposure to nature, and had no real interest in the environment. My friends and I burned trash in a barrel, dumped oil and other items down the sewer, and threw garbage into vacant lots. Everyone did.

Open for Sweet Holiday Cheer
