Book Review: Curing Chronic Illness by Alan Hunter

Alan Hunter cover curing chronic illness.pngCan raw food cure Disease?  Yes!  The big pharma want to keep money in their pockets and discredit natural ways to heal dis-eases.  The reason I personally know that natural remedies work is because years ago, I was diagnosed with a so-called problem that was not curable and in fact it was.  I thought outside the box, went to a holistic healer who read my eyes and prescribed me natural medicines for ten months and to the doctor’s surprise I was 100% cured.  This is how I know the value of this book by Alan Hunter.  This book is filled with the evidence, gathered from medical research and studies from world-famous universities and colleges, medical institutions, clinics and hospitals, from all around the world. Did you know that every living organism in the world eats its food raw; all animals eat raw, all fish, all insects, all birds eat raw. They may die of injury or by being attacked by other animals, but disease as we know it in our human, cooked-food society, simply does not occur in the wild?  I love the references in this book that prove the research done by Alan Hunter.   It is valuable to anyone who may not believe that raw foods can heal any ailment just like back in the biblical days with people and animals.  To sum up the book I leave you with a quote: “If humanity will one day grasp the importance of natural food, this will be the beginning of a new era in the history of human life; it will simply be the PARADISE.”

Book Review: Everything You Need You Have by Gerad Kite


Is it true that everything you need, you have?  While reading Gerad Kite’s book you will learn how to look at things in a different perspective as well as living in the present moment.  It’s not about doing more it’s about being more.   Home is where you feel at peace it’s a permanent place inside yourself. This book gives you a ten-step program to find your “calm.”

“Wanting thigs to be a certain way is NOT freedom.”

“Achieving what you set out to do is NOT freedom.”

“Being the person you want to be is NOT freedom.” (Kite, 2016, page 20).


The journey the author takes the reader on beings with admitting you are lost.  You will learn how to use a pendulum.  What is a Pendulum?   A pendulum is a weight suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely.   To find your true rest means getting your thoughts and actions away from chaos in the physical world and even your thoughts in your mind.  One way to get back to calm is to make a list of the activities you know will bring you back to a happy state of mind.  Extreme highs and lows are what you choose to do with your state of mind which is a manifestation of a mood or thought at a particular time in a particular place but they have little to do with “you.” When you take away all the labels we have been programmed to be, we are all the same, “a person.” What we all learn from Mr. Kite is the ten steps to find your natural rhythms, view your emotions from a different perspective, and finally experience a state of bliss that you can return over and over. “I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”  @ 2016 Jackie Paulson

I have no place to live and temporarily live with a friend. I am going back to college to get my Master’s Degree in Human Resources.
On a funny side, I was dropped off at a dollar store to buy things that needed for college. When I left the store I thought I was opening a door to the car I wanted, but instead I opened a car with a man waiting in the drivers seat, and it was not my car! I apologized and he said that’s okay because my car was next to his. I was laughing so hard! That is a Path story that is true. I can imagine if he drove away with me in it!!
I want to share random photos with all of you that make me smile.
