Big business and profits are the engines behind this terrible change, but they are not the ones to blame. The solution is actually rather simple
Perhaps the greatest mechanism for change was taught to me by my beloved mentor Paul Chek, in his Personal Professional and Spiritual Mastery Course.
He told us to “Vote with Your Dollar!” I have employed that
message ever since. I could easily see the logic in paying extra
so that my family’s food is free from pesticides, but some things
seemed less important to my immediate health. That’s when the
astonishing power of my vote matters. If tomorrow, alone, no one
in the country purchased a chemical household cleaner or even one apple
that has been grown from pesticides, entire corporations would be brought
to their knees. The chemical manufacturers would lose so much
money that many would never recover.
Every vote for a natural alternative is a vote that puts cheap chemical alternatives out of business. People who currently work for these corporations
would immediately be forced to use their talents to develop green solutions.
Along with this change in workforce allocation would soon be larger
distribution and finally affordability for all. Before long, everyone
would be spraying their kitchens with natural products, we would be
employing wise farming practices that naturally repel insects, and our
children’s toys would never again be recalled for toxicity.
The power of the people would shine so bright that it would be remembered
as the greatest grass-roots movement ever to change the world…perhaps
to save the world, and our children.
All sweeping changes to the zeitgeist, or “spirit of the time,” begin by the few pioneers who are willing to give their time, money, and sometimes
their life to a cause. For the pioneers of freedom in America,
they were willing to give all three. Perhaps uniquely among zeitgeists,
however, it will not be those who spend their time and money who risk
their lives to make change; it will be those who don’t risk their
time and money.
Is it possible to be happy when you lie in bed feeling sick? Many of our loved ones around the world are trying to do that right now. But I don’t
want to feel that challenge. And I definitely don’t want my
child to face that challenge. No, I want to die in my sleep the
same evening I spend watching my great-grandkids play a soccer match.
I want my great grandchildren to face challenges on the field, at school,
in their career, and in love…not in the hospital, battling cancer
they contract from the womb.
As I write this, many of you can feel that the few have already become many. The trend is changing and is approaching a tipping point. I am
committed to be the one who does not have cancer. I am committed
to break the current trend that predicts that 100% will develop cancer.
I am committed to spend my time and my money on what philosophers throughout
history have called the only real happiness and the greatest of all
human blessings and liberties: health. I will vote with my dollar.
Household Cleaners and Detergents—Avoid nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) which are known endocrine disruptors. We currently use Dr. Charlie’s
Laundry Powder, Seventh Generation Free & Clear Automatic Dishwasher
Powder, and Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner, all of which
can be ordered on-line or may be picked up at a health food store.
Recently, we have been experimenting with combinations of vinegar, baking
soda, water, and essential oils, which is so simple to use if you reuse
your old spray container.
Dr. Green lists the following basic ingredients which can be used themselves or mixed together “for almost any household need:”
You can find a natural alternative for anything just by Googling “natural _____ cleaner.” Yes, googling is almost a real English word.
