Misconceptions: Sale Price Do Not Mean Low Quality Merchandise

Recently I put tons of product on sale.  I had discounts, free shipping and buy 1 get 2 free.  A customer of mine wrote that he was concerned the products were "Old."  I had to laugh, no not old just clearance priced.  He was shocked and asked the expiration date.  I had another customer ask me the same thing.  I thought it was weird and tried to understand. Both stocked up on the fabulous bargains.

People questioned why my prices were so small compared to others.  There was no big mystery involved and of course did not post my personal reason on the website, but my sister was facing foreclosure and we needed to pay her house off fast.  There was no one else to help but me and so I took every penny I had to save her.

The one thing I did have was thousands of dollars in stock that could be replaced.  I had leaves for two years and those will be replaced soon as the new leaves were coming.

So I noticed sales died and they died big time.  I was stunned. Day after day I waited to see what was going on.  Still no sales and then it dawned on me that people were worried, why was the price so low.  Daaa, it was a personal decision to help my little sister save her home.  Her husband was in the hospital with his 3rd stroke after quadruple heart by pass.  His chances of surviving were minimal and if he died before their life insurance takes affect she would be on the street.  It was a noble cause and of course did not share that.

So to please those who were concerned, I raised the prices up again, lol.  So for those who purchased during my drastic sales, congratulations, for those who did not, oh bet you are kicking yourself now.  No I am not going out of business, still ship weekly like I always do.

Sometimes things are not as you might imagine.  So if you see a huge sale in the future, run, do not hesitate as you never know when  it may come again.

A Woman's Secret to Longevity - Egg Yolks and Remaining Single

Emma Morano is the oldest person in Europe and the 5th oldest in the world.  She is an Italian woman who was born in 1899 and she learned early on in her life what truly mattered.  Her marriage was hard and stressful and she decided to be truly happy she must be free.  So in a time when people were not divorcing (1938), she left her husband and never again would she let any man dominate her.  She to this day has remained single.

Now this philosophy goes against everything naturalist are teaching.  All naturalist who gurus who teach you to live past 100 tell you that you need to be married and have lots of friends.  Was this isolation from men healthy or was it in her genes?  Maybe her marriage was so bad, the thought of marrying again was too frightening.  She stated, "I didn't want to be dominated by anyone."  Her life and her choice.

When asked about her diet she also had a strange philosophy that is not like anything we have heard before. Due to her anemia, her doctor told her to eat raw eggs.  So she eats 3 raw eggs a day.  That is 1095 eggs a year.  The though of chuggling raw eggs may not be appealing and so to try this longevity diet of Emma's I added in one cup of juice and the 3 eggs. 

The first day my heart felt sluggish and I wondered if this was good for me or for anyone.  The second day tried it with two eggs and a grape juice.  Still was not thrilled with the results.  The third day I added in 1 to 2 teaspoons of my very strong black seed oil from Saudi Arabia.  Walah!!! I felt fantastic.  I had more energy than I had in days.

Normally we suggest 2 to 3 eggs per week and so go about this protocol with caution and I might suggest starting with 2 raw eggs a day.  Again make sure that you have organic eggs and of the best quality.  Living a long life takes more than eggs in my opinion. 

For Emma it worked well. Although there is no mention of whatelse she added or did without.

According to Livingthenourishedlife.com, these are a few more good reasons to eat raw egg yolks.
  • Fat soluble vitamins are highly concentrated in egg yolks. This is where all the valuable vitamin A, D, E and K are stored. 
  • The yolk is also where you’re going to find plenty of B vitamins (like the very crucial B6 and B12, which many people are short on), plus minerals like calcium and zinc.
  • Egg yolks are rich in cholesterol. And that’s a good thing! Cholesterol is imperative for hormone and neurotransmitter production (i.e. it keeps you feeling good), and is also crucial for the production of vitamin D
  • Yolks contain essential fatty acids like omega-3 DHA. Egg yolks, especially those from pastured chickens, have an excellent omega 3:6 ratio, too. There’s virtually no fat in the white, however.
  • Egg yolks are also a great source of lecithin, which is great for your liver, your brain and your skin. Throw out your soy lecithin (it’s basically industrial waste) and get your lecithin from eggs!
