Patricia Bragg at Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Festival

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:14 AM

Patri­cia Bragg at Santa Bar­bara Sum­mer Sol­stice Festival

 

Dr. Patri­cia Bragg loves the Santa Bar­bara Sum­mer Sol­stice Fes­ti­val! From the col­or­ful cos­tumes in the parades to the fan­tas­tic fes­ti­val cel­e­bra­tion held in Alameda Park, art and cre­ativ­ity abounds as Santa Barbara’s cit­i­zens gather to cel­e­brate the peak of Sum­mer! As always, Dr. Bragg was in atten­dance to enjoy the sights, sounds, and souls at play. After a quick trip to Goleta gem, Isla Vista Food Co-Operative, Patri­cia was ready to enjoy a beau­ti­ful parade!

His­tory of Santa Bar­bara Sum­mer Sol­stice Fes­ti­val:
The Sum­mer Sol­stice Parade began in 1974, as a birth­day cel­e­bra­tion for a pop­u­lar artist and mime named Michael Gon­za­les. In sub­se­quent years, their parade joined forces with a Sum­mer Sol­stice Music Fes­ti­val coor­di­nated by Michael Felcher, spon­sored by The Santa Bar­bara Museum of Art, staged at the Sunken Gar­dens to cel­e­brate the longest day of year.

The Parade and Fes­ti­val is the largest arts event in Santa Bar­bara County, draw­ing crowds of over 100,000 spec­ta­tors from around the world. From these hum­ble begin­nings arose a cel­e­bra­tion of life which, is like no other.

Today, the Sum­mer Sol­stice Cel­e­bra­tion has evolved into cre­ative and orig­i­nal dis­play of floats, giant pup­pets, whim­si­cal cos­tumes and masks of more than 1,000 parade par­tic­i­pants, of all eth­nic and eco­nomic back­grounds. There is danc­ing, music, drum­ming and drama that enthralls the spec­ta­tors. Each year there is an annual artis­tic com­pe­ti­tion for the Sol­stice T-shirt and Poster design that is sold as a fundrais­ing vehi­cle for the event.

The Fes­ti­val in Alameda Park grew from the ear­lier gath­er­ings at the sunken gar­dens of the County Cour­t­house. When the num­ber of peo­ple out­grew the size of the cour­t­house the event was moved to Alameda Park. The Alameda Park is where every­one can enjoy a won­der­ful eclec­tic col­lec­tion of live world music includ­ing famous local groups, food, arts and crafts. On Sat­ur­day only is a spe­cial free children’s fes­ti­val and a DJ area for danc­ing and enjoy­ing techno music and a large drum cir­cle keeps the beat going all after­noon. The fes­ti­val now opens on Fri­day after­noon, which is like the “evening events of years past.”  It’s a spe­cial evening, show­cas­ing local tal­ents with music, dance, per­for­mances.  Some of the parade ensem­bles are fea­tured as well as all of the food booths, arts and crafts ven­dors. As a 501©3, non­profit, com­mu­nity orga­ni­za­tion, the Sum­mer Sol­stice Cel­e­bra­tion group is respon­si­ble for car­ry­ing on Michael’s delight­ful, mul­ti­cul­tural per­form­ing arts cel­e­bra­tion, and ensur­ing an extrav­a­gant cel­e­bra­tion of life through art for many years to come.

Fight to Defend Trans Fats Funded With Dark Money

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:16 PM

Fight to Defend Trans Fats
Funded With Dark Money

Arti­cle From: https://firstlook.org/

A con­ser­v­a­tive Wash­ing­ton think tank that opposed a fed­eral ban of trans fats has also actively cam­paigned against cli­mate sci­ence and envi­ron­men­tal reg­u­la­tion, and is funded by secret donors.

The gov­ern­ment on Tues­day announced a ban of indus­trial par­tially hydro­genated oils, the pri­mary source of arti­fi­cial trans fats, giv­ing food man­u­fac­tur­ers three years to remove them from their prod­ucts. Food and Drug Admin­is­tra­tion act­ing com­mis­sioner Stephen Ostroff said the ban “is expected to reduce coro­nary heart dis­ease and pre­vent thou­sands of fatal heart attacks every year.”

Five Euro­pean coun­tries already ban trans fats. Cal­i­for­nia and sev­eral U.S. cities, includ­ing New York City, ban them in restau­rant food.

But the fed­eral ban had its oppo­nents. The National Cen­ter for Pub­lic Pol­icy Research (NCPPR), which iden­ti­fies itself as a “non-partisan, free-market, inde­pen­dent con­ser­v­a­tive” think tank, cam­paigned against it, call­ing it a “hor­ri­ble idea.”

The NCPPR argued that the solu­tion to min­i­miz­ing trans fats in foods is to allow the free mar­ket to operate.

Senior Fel­low Jeff Stier claimed that it was through “mar­kets respond[ing] to con­sumer demand” that the amount of trans fats in foods has decreased in recent years. But accord­ing to a 2011 arti­cle in the British Med­ical Jour­nal, it was the U.S. government’s 2006 man­date that cor­po­ra­tions label trans fat con­tent in food that led to the decrease.

Stier and the NCPPR also oppose manda­tory food label­ing.

Stier referred to organic food as “a detri­ment to pub­lic health” in 2007. And he calls the free mar­ket the solu­tion to the obe­sity cri­sis.

He is also a cli­mate change denier who warns of a con­spir­acy he calls “the global warm­ing agenda.”

In its sum­mer 2014 newslet­ter, the NCPPR harangued Apple for what it described as the company’s “rad­i­cal envi­ron­men­tal policies.”

So who are these peo­ple who defend what many would con­sider inde­fen­si­ble? And who pays for this stuff?

The NCPPR has oper­ated since the begin­ning of the Rea­gan era. By its own count, its hand­ful of staff reached the peak of their influ­ence in 2005, with 8,046 media inter­views, cita­tions and op-eds. Amy and David Ride­nour, its chair­man and pres­i­dent, respec­tively — who together made almost $500,000 in 2013, accord­ing to the organization’s 2013 990 tax form — have a his­tory of lob­by­ing on behalf of tobacco cor­po­ra­tions and against envi­ron­men­tal regulations.

Non-profits that describe them­selves as char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tions, as NCPPR does, are not required to dis­close their donors.

In a late 2009 blog post on the NCPPR web­site, Ride­nour claimed that global warm­ing is the United Nations’ “estab­lished reli­gion” and that the inter­na­tional com­mu­nity suf­fers from “blind adher­ence to an unproven premise.” Media Mat­ters found tax records of fos­sil fuel giant Exxon­Mo­bil show­ing that it and its foun­da­tion donated as much as $55,000 a year to the NCCPR last decade.

The NCPPR fun­neled money from for­mer super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty in 2006 to fraud, tax eva­sion and con­spir­acy to bribe pub­lic offi­cials. The Wash­ing­ton Post reported in 2006 that “Abramoff was using Ridenour’s National Cen­ter for Pub­lic Pol­icy Research to hide the source of fund­ing for trips and other ven­tures intended to boost the inter­ests of his lob­by­ing clients, e-mails show.”

Watch­dog orga­ni­za­tion Cit­i­zenAu­dit dis­cov­ered that the NCPPR gets funds for Donors Trust and Donors Cap­i­tal Fund, two char­i­ties that bankroll right-wing organizations.

Although it has just five employ­ees, Donors Cap­i­tal Fund has an enor­mous impact. Mother Jones refers to it as the “dark-money ATM of the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment,” explain­ing that the group “allows wealthy con­trib­u­tors who want to donate mil­lions to the most impor­tant causes on the right to do so anony­mously, essen­tially scrub­bing the iden­tity of those under­writ­ing con­ser­v­a­tive and lib­er­tar­ian organizations.”

Some of NCPPR’s money also comes from aggres­sive fundrais­ing let­ters. Crit­ics claim the orga­ni­za­tion acquires “the names of older peo­ple and mail them requests for dona­tions. These requests are sent with let­ters intended to scare the recip­i­ent into donat­ing. The NCPPR’s 2011 inde­pen­dent audit, the most recent avail­able on its web­site, found that $8.2 mil­lion of its $10 mil­lion in expenses went to direct mail­ing fees.

A 1998 inves­ti­ga­tion by the San Fran­cisco Exam­iner included NCPPR among what it called “the fear merchants.”

Stier pre­vi­ously worked as the asso­ciate direc­tor of the Amer­i­can Coun­cil on Sci­ence and Health (ACSH), a pro-corporate advo­cacy group that has received exten­sive fund­ing from large multi­na­tion­als, includ­ing McDonald’s.

Stier responded to an email inquiry by refer­ring to his writ­ten work. Amy Ride­nour did not return a request for comment.

Mother Nature’s All-In-One, All-Natural, Cure-All,
and Multi-Purpose Life Elixir: Apple Cider Vinegar!

Backed by Research and Nat­ural Health Enthu­si­asts since Hippocrates…

How would you like to walk into your local gro­cery store and buy ONE thing off the shelves that could replace:

  • Just about every over-the-counter (and prob­a­bly some your doctor’s pre­scribed) cream, oint­ment or tonic in your med­i­cine cabinet!
  • Your expen­sive beau­ti­fy­ing skin cleansers and age-spot treat­ments! The dozen or so chemical-ridden kitchen and bath­room clean­ers stashed under your sink!
  • The pet prod­ucts you’re going broke using to keep your pets healthy and pest-free!
  • The pricey per­sonal care prod­ucts your fam­ily goes through like water!
  • And much, much more!

So much more in fact that you could fill a book with all the incred­i­ble uses of this ONE all-purpose solu­tion that can take care of every­thing from a mos­quito bite to…

  • Keep­ing fleas off your dog…
  • Fuel­ing your work-out endurance…
  • Pro­vid­ing key nutri­ents that pro­tect against heart disease…
  • To even mak­ing it harder for can­cer to grow in your body!

 

What am I talk­ing about? Only THE most talked-about “nat­ural rem­edy” in Folk med­i­cine ever—Apple Cider Vinegar!

The heal­ing power of Apple Cider Vine­gar (ACV for short) has been known for millennia—dating back to ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. The Roman Army—once the most pow­er­ful and for­mi­da­ble con­querors of the known world—used an ACV tonic to stay strong and healthy…

And Hip­pocrates, the father of med­i­cine, used this amaz­ing elixir as a nat­ural antibi­otic and anti­sep­tic to heal patients in 400 B.C.!

And there was noth­ing “magic” about it—just good com­mon sense, con­cen­trated nutri­ents and one extra­or­di­nary ingre­di­ent found only in ACV…

But folk reme­dies car­ried down though hundreds—even thousands—of years are not the only proof that ACV is the real deal. Research is start­ing to val­i­date mounds of anec­do­tal evi­dence that ACV is not only useful—it’s effective!

Just look at the science…

  • Weight Loss! In a Japan­ese study par­tic­i­pants who drank more ACV than their coun­ter­parts dur­ing a 12 week period had lower BMI, waist cir­cum­fer­ence and vis­ceral fat than the con­trol group who drank none!
  • Accord­ing to one study, con­sum­ing ACV decreased the risk of esophageal cancer!
  • In clin­i­cal tri­als, ACV was shown to slow the growth of can­cer­ous cells within the prostate!
  • And the Ger­son Institute—a leader in can­cer research and treatment—fights can­cer with a ther­apy that alka­lizes the body to inhibit the growth of can­cer because can­cer can’t sur­vive in an alka­line envi­ron­ment. ACV nat­u­rally alka­lizes your body!

I could go on and on and detail 81 ways that ACV can CHANGE, SAVE, IMPROVE and SIMPLIFY your life!

That’s no exag­ger­a­tion! After months and months of research into what is no doubt the most ben­e­fi­cial nat­ural health tonic ever known to man, I’ve uncovered…

  • 58 ways ACV can improve your health—rang­ing from minor to life-saving…
  • 15 house­hold uses—includ­ing clean­ing and gar­den­ing solu­tions that are all earth and animal-friendly…
  • Five ways to pam­per and care for your skin—on the cheap…
  • And three per­sonal care uses that will not only save you tons of money—but are toxin free, unlike what you’re prob­a­bly using now!

In fact, I’m going to tell you about so many incred­i­ble uses for ACV that you’ll want to run to your near­est gro­cer and get your own bot­tle right away! And I hope you do!

But first, let’s talk about why ACV is so amaz­ing and how to make sure you get the right kind of ACV to start reju­ve­nat­ing, heal­ing, burn­ing fat, pre­vent­ing chronic ill­ness and feel­ing better!

The Apple Cider Vine­gar Miracle

Raw organic apple cider vine­gar truly is nature’s per­fect mir­a­cle food—and should never be con­fused with reg­u­lar clear vine­gar. Clear vine­gar has none of the health prop­er­ties of ACV and can actu­ally be harmful.

Tra­di­tional uses of ACV are almost lim­it­less! To name just a few… ACV has been used to ease diges­tion, aid in flu pre­ven­tion, reduce inflam­ma­tion, reg­u­late pH bal­ance, ease nau­sea and heart­burn, as a sta­ple in detox reg­i­mens, and for a num­ber of skin conditions—including reduc­ing acne and smooth­ing wrinkles!

But why exactly does ACV con­tain so many heal­ing properties?

The secret may lie in its alka­liz­ing effect!

Even though ACV is acidic (like a lemon or lime), it cre­ates a per­fect alka­line envi­ron­ment in your body that is the exact oppo­site of what most dis­eases require to thrive.

And then there’s the incred­i­ble con­cen­tra­tion of nat­u­rally occur­ring vital nutrients…

Raw, organic ACV is made from organic apples and under­goes a dou­ble fer­men­ta­tion process, which pro­duces enzymes and pre­serves its health-promoting char­ac­ter­is­tics. Some of the most ben­e­fi­cial nutri­ents in raw, organic ACV include:

  • Potas­sium: essen­tial for nor­mal heart, kid­ney and other organ and cel­lu­lar function
  • Iron: impor­tant for blood health
  • Mag­ne­sium: vital to heart health
  • Enzymes: boost chem­i­cal reac­tions in the body
  • Malic acid: pro­tects vine­gar from viruses, bac­te­ria and fungus
  • Acetic acid: slows the diges­tion of starch and inhibits bac­te­r­ial growth
  • Cal­cium: builds strong bones and teeth
  • Pectin: helps reg­u­late blood pres­sure and cholesterol
  • Ash: main­tains a healthy alka­line state in the body

Plus, ACV pro­vides a ver­i­ta­ble smor­gas­bord of vit­a­mins and pow­er­ful antiox­i­dants includ­ing vit­a­min A, B6, C, E, thi­amin, riboflavin, niacin, pan­tothenic acid, beta-carotene and lycopene!

But there is ONE extra-special ingre­di­ent that puts ACV over-the-top in health-promoting potential—and that’s “Mother.”

Also known as Myco­derma aceti, Mother of vine­gar is cre­ated when acetic acid bac­te­ria and a type of cel­lu­lose develop dur­ing the fer­men­ta­tion process.

Mother of vine­gar is harmless—and the phe­nom­e­nal health-promoting char­ac­ter­is­tics it pos­sesses are out of this world! Such as liv­ing nutri­ents and friendly bacteria—the kinds you hear about that are so impor­tant for “bal­anced” health…

A body that’s not prop­erly pH bal­anced is wide open for dis­ease and sick­ness because:

#1 Acid­ity robs min­er­als from bones, cells, organs and tissue!

#2 With­out minerals—vitamin absorp­tion is compromised!

#3 Tox­ins and pathogens eas­ily build up and the immune sys­tem is suppressed!

This is why Hip­pocrates made ACV his go to treat­ment of choice to fight infections—and why more and more peo­ple are realizing…

Nat­ural REALLY IS better!

This won­der­ful clump of soil we call home is truly a mir­a­cle! Everything—I mean everything—we need to thrive and sur­vive is here on God’s green earth… but we haven’t been the best stewards.

In an effort to make more and bet­ter food and feed bil­lions of peo­ple, some­thing has gone awry. The food we eat is processed or genet­i­cally modified—or pumped so full of antibi­otics and pesticides—you have to won­der… are we try­ing to poi­son ourselves?

There’s some­thing wrong with our way of think­ing when some­thing as pure and nat­ural as ACV is con­sid­ered an “out of the box” remedy—when in fact it’s just a good old sim­ple common-sense way to pro­mote over­all health and well-being!

So why do some peo­ple find it hard to believe that one sim­ple food can do so much good? Partly because we’re con­di­tioned to believe that nat­ural cures don’t work, and that we have to put our faith in dan­ger­ous phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals to find relief.

Now if that’s not “out of the box,” I don’t know what is! How often has the next big drug been fast-tracked through the FDA and fed to mil­lions of trust­ing peo­ple expect­ing to be cured…

Only to dis­cover that the med­i­cine they were tak­ing was mak­ing them sicker—even killing them?

But as soon as you under­stand the “busi­ness of med­i­cine” it all becomes crys­tal clear: Con­ven­tional med­i­cine is about treat­ing your symptoms—not pre­vent­ing illness.

Mother Nature, on the other hand, is all about hand­ing you just what you need to enjoy…

Pure and Sim­ple Health
with Apple Cider Vinegar

Using ACV to pro­mote your well-being, stop hair loss, treat a blad­der infec­tion, alle­vi­ate aller­gies, reduce vari­cose veins, lower your blood pres­sure or soothe a sore throat is so simple—you only have ONE rule to follow…

Dilute, dilute and dilute. It doesn’t get much eas­ier than that!

ACV is highly acidic—so it’s always best to mix it with water. If a par­tic­u­lar rem­edy calls for two tea­spoons of ACV to be ingested—stir it into a glass of water—because drink­ing ACV straight may dam­age tooth enamel. Or burn going down the hatch.

Drink­ing diluted ACV tastes just a lit­tle sour, but I’ll tell you… it’s much eas­ier to drink to your health than deal with the long list of down­right scary side effects you’ll hear on the TV drug commercials—the ones that make you won­der if it’s safer just to stay sick!

But drink­ing ACV isn’t the only way for you to reap its heal­ing benefits—sometimes just a lit­tle dab will do ya…

First Aid with ACV

I wasn’t exag­ger­at­ing when I said I could name 58 health pur­poses for ACV.

I’ve already men­tioned a few—including how ACV has been shown in stud­ies to impact the fight against can­cer, sup­port heart health, and pre­vent many com­mon illnesses.

And there are plenty more ways it can safe­guard you against other life-threatening illnesses!

But let’s start here with some sim­ple, basic, every day health issues that I bet you, a fam­ily mem­ber, a friend or neigh­bor could def­i­nitely put to use today start­ing with…

ACV First Aid: Exter­nal Itching

There are numer­ous causes of exter­nal itching—dry skin, aller­gic reac­tion, an imbal­ance in the body—you name it! And lotions or creams don’t always soothe. In fact, if you’ve scratched till your skin is raw, lotion can fur­ther irritate.

But I can almost guar­an­tee that no mat­ter the cause—a lit­tle ACV can tame an itch in no time.

APPLICATION:

  • 1/4 cup ACV
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 clean cot­ton ball

Direc­tions
Mix ACV with water
Dab the affected area a cou­ple of times a day
Stop when the itch­ing subsides

No more run­ning to the drug­store to take care of:

  • Painful boils!
  • Athlete’s foot!
  • Jock itch!
  • Fun­gal ear infections!
  • Corns, cal­luses or warts!
  • Even swollen, unsightly vari­cose veins!

Only vary the ratio of ACV to water (you’ll dis­cover how easy it is to do) and you’ll be able to home treat just about any annoy­ing skin con­di­tion with­out costly oint­ments or prescriptions!

Con­sid­er­ing you’d pay about $12-$15 for the lead­ing over-the-counter anti-itch or anti-fungal cream—and only about $6 for a 32 ounce jar of raw, unfil­tered, organic apple cider vine­gar that you can use again and again and again…

I’d say that’s not only effec­tive med­i­cine but smart economics!

ACV First Aid: Sore Throat

Most of the time a sore throat is noth­ing serious—and if caught early enough a com­mon sense rem­edy like ACV can save you hours of time wasted at the doctor’s office—and a hefty co-pay IF you have insurance!

In cases of viral infec­tion, antibi­otics don’t help—but that doesn’t keep doc­tors from over-prescribing unnec­es­sary med­ica­tion that could make mat­ters worse.

APPLICATION:

  • 1/4 cup ACV
    • 1/4 cup fil­tered water

Direc­tions
At first sign of sore throat
Mix ACV with water
Gar­gle with this solu­tion for at least 30 sec­onds
Rinse with Water
Repeat sev­eral times

You can save your­self time and MONEY by using ACV the next time:

  • Your aller­gies flare up!
  • Some­one in the fam­ily expe­ri­ences minor constipation!
  • You have trou­ble sleeping!
  • A painful canker sore won’t go away!
  • Bad breath becomes an embar­rass­ing problem!

The every­day health uses for ACV are limitless—and I’ll tell you how to dis­cover even more—but first, I want to show you how to make the switch to safer…

Per­sonal Care, Skin­care,
and Beauty Ton­ics with ACV

If you haven’t started using organic per­sonal care prod­ucts you really should con­sider it. Your health depends on it!

The toxic load found in sham­poos, deodor­ants, lotions—just about every per­sonal care prod­uct you have in your shower or van­ity right now—is pos­ing a very real threat to you, your fam­ily and the earth!

The Exten­sion Tox­i­col­ogy Net­work (EXTOXNET) states that “chem­i­cals can be absorbed through the skin and into the blood­stream, caus­ing toxic effects.”

That’s why it’s imper­a­tive to only put ON your skin that which you would be will­ing to take into your body!

ACV is not only a safe and effec­tive per­sonal care alter­na­tive, but it offers a mul­ti­tude of age defy­ing, toxin-free ben­e­fits to keep your entire body clean, bacteria-free and healthy, start­ing with…

ACV Per­sonal Care: pH Skin Balancer

ACV con­tains antibac­te­r­ial and anti­fun­gal prop­er­ties that bal­ance the skin’s pH—making it a great nat­ural choice to keep your skin look­ing and feel­ing its best!

In addi­tion, ACV nat­u­rally con­tains alpha hydroxy acids—the key ingre­di­ent in most high-priced skin creams—which help to remove dead skin cells.

Why pay upwards of $35 or more when you can choose your own bot­tle of ACV for about $6? Again, it’s just good com­mon sense!

Plus, peo­ple who com­monly suf­fer from acne, dry or oily skin will find that their skin is much more bal­anced when using ACV, with fewer breakouts.

To treat your whole body to an invig­o­rat­ing, age-defying ACV spa-style wash, try this:

APPLICATION:

  1. Fill a small wash basin with warm water and ½ cup of ACV. Stand­ing in the shower or tub, dip your hands in the mix­ture and mas­sage all over your body until thor­oughly wet.
  2. Mas­sage the bal­ancer into your skin until it is dry; do not wash off.
  3. As an alter­na­tive, pour the mix­ture into a spray bot­tle and spray your­self after your shower or bath for an invig­o­rat­ing pH balancer.

ACV also makes an excel­lent cleanser and can be mixed with a few other nat­ural ingre­di­ents for an excel­lent beau­ti­fy­ing mask!

ACV Per­sonal Care: Hair Rinse

Your grand­mother can prob­a­bly attest to this old-time favorite beauty use for ACV…

If you wash your hair with con­ven­tional sham­poo, a residue builds up over time. This can cause your hair to become dull and lifeless.

To remove the residue and restore shine and bounce, do this:

APPLICATION:

  1. Mix 1/2 tea­spoon of ACV with 1 cup of water
  2. Pour onto your hair
  3. Rinse with water

The shine that ACV leaves behind is absolutely gor­geous! And think about how lit­tle it will cost you com­pared to the expen­sive “clar­i­fiers” found at the salon. And this DIY treat­ment can be done on your time in your own home!

In addi­tion to nat­u­rally lux­u­ri­ous hair care—ACV can be used as:

  • An effec­tive deodor­ant for both men and women!
  • A sooth­ing aftershave!
  • A tonic to reju­ve­nate tired eyes!
  • An effec­tive treat­ment for nail fungus!
