Upcycling Materials ~ What is it?

What is Upcycling?

Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something beautiful and useful.

For example:

-Taking old tires and repurposing for baskets.

- Taking old Sari’s and creating beautiful bags, and scarves and shawls as we do with our clothing line.

Upcycling gives it new life and purpose and a more beautiful purpose. It is not just recycling but creating a new and improved use.

So what is the difference? Recycling vs. Upcycling

Recycling takes materials like plastic, paper, metal and glass and breaks them down so that their materials can be used to create a new product often the same or a lesser of a product rather than throwing it in trash. For example; recycling paper to save trees.

When you upcycle an items, you don’t break down the materials, you don’t degrade the quality, you use the materials to re-fashion an item. A upcycled item is typically better or the same quality as the original.

Upcycling is not a new idea.

Upcycling is also known as creative reuse, so in this way it is also Green. We take clothing, and upcycle the material to create our beautiful scarves, bags, and shawls.  Years ago our grandmothers did this when saving old pieces of clothing and patchworking to create quilts and other such items.

Upcycling is Green

You can now find upcycled materials being used for furniture, household décor, lighting, clocks, bags, artwork, clothing and much more. Upcycling can be repeated in perpetuity of returning materials back to a pliable, usable form without degradation to their latent value—moving resources back up the supply chain. Upcycling does not require any energy to break down the materials, just your imagination.

We know you will love our upcycled shawls, bags and scarves and we know you will appreciate the fact that you are part of something that is helping artisans feed their families, while helping the environment at the same time! How awesome is that?!

Top 3 Products to Reconnect this Spring

Top 3 Products to Reconnect this Spring

By Rose-Anne Partridge​

The cold winter months and winds have now subsided and the hint of warm and fresh air have started to emerge with the trickling of the melting snows. Spring is here and it’s the perfect time to make sure your body is fresh, strong, and healthy for the fun-in-the-sun outdoor months to come!

Here is my list of the top 3 products to reconnect your mind, body, and home this spring: 

1.    Boost Your Omegas and Vitamin D at once!

 If you haven’t been supplementing during the winter months and you live North of the 37th parallel line you may be getting little or no Vitamin D at all from October until the end of March. The angle of the sun is such that, in much of North America, no vitamin D is available from that source. What that means is most of us are deficient in vitamin D this time of year. Spring does mean that the sun will become available to us once again, but perhaps you won’t be able to spend enough quality time outdoors to begin with to boost your levels. Auum Omega 3 Sublingual-D and D3A combine mammalian omega 3s (the kind our bodies need and can readily absorb) with vitamin D (which needs a fat to properly absorb into our system -- omega 3 fatty acids work perfectly for this purpose!). Get your brain and body back in spring gear by adding this supplement to your daily routine. 

2.    Get the benefits of the ocean in a bottle

If you were lucky enough to get away to somewhere hot and sunny on the ocean, your body would have thanked you for the infusion of magnesium from the ocean waters. However, my family wasn’t that fortunate this year and so we had to turn to an alternate source for our magnesium. Magnesium deficiency may be the most common nutritional problem in the industrialized world today, yet it is the single MOST IMPORTANT MINERAL for maintaining electrical balance and metabolism in our cells. Which is why I use the purest and most absorbable Magnesium (in Chloride form), on the planet... and it's derived straight from the natural sea! When you start using Magnesium Infusion™… You can feel calm in your bones, and purely-relaxed muscles. You can experience a much deeper sleep. Any aches & pains can begin to utterly melt away… And your “spring” will be back in your step! 

3.    Spring clean the healthy way

 I love the moment I can start to open and keep open my windows and doors for that fresh spring breeze to clear out the staleness of the winter months in our house. And with spring comes the desire to clean up our homes from top to bottom. But personally, I cannot think of spraying harmful chemicals throughout my home to try to get that “spring fresh” clean scent! Cleaning is supposed to be about maintaining a healthy home, yet most common household cleaning products contain chemicals that can harm our health and the environment. When we use these chemicals to clean our home, they linger in the air and we breathe them in. To ensure my home gets clean AND keeps me and my family healthy in the process, I only use Young Living Thieves® Household Cleaner. Thieves® Household Cleaner is an all-purpose, concentrated cleaner formulated with 100 percent plant-derived and mineral-based ingredients. Thieves Household Cleaner is biodegradable and complies with EPA standards. Healthy and clean home for spring. Learn more about Rose-Anne by visiting her site. www.reallifechanges.com

Healthy Cells, Healthy Life

Healthy Cells, Healthy Life:
How negative EMF’s affect our lives & what we can do to optimize our cell function.

By Rev. Darcelle Runciman

With the world becoming dominated by wireless technology we are bombarded with micro, and low frequency waves through the air. Our cell phones, cell towers, wireless internet router, and cordless phones have all been recognized as possible contributors to an environment of electromagnetic hypersensitivity which is caused by radio waves, negative EMF’s.

“Health isn’t everything, but without health, everything is nothing.” Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) German Philosopher.

Dr. Martha Herbert PhD, co-authored the long paper “Autism and EMF? Plausibility of a Pathophysiological Link,” now peer-reviewed, indexed on PubMed and published as Part I and Part II in the journal Pathophysiology (2013).  EMFs (electromagnetic fields) target the same physiological vulnerabilities as do other toxicants. “I explained in this paper and have continued to pursue the electrophysiology of how autism is something that develops and is generated by the brain micro-moment by micro-moment — that is, it is a PROCESS, not a hardwired fixed thing.  It is also something that can potentially be unwound, at least to the point of getting rid of surplus obstructions to function.

She also wrote to the Los Angeles School Board discouraging the installation of Wi-Fi, explaining that wireless radiation “from Wi-Fi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function. This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place”.

Last December, the City of Toronto voted to maintain its “Prudent Avoidance” policy, recommending people and civic bodies keep radiation levels from cell towers 100 times safer than the federal Safety Code 6 minimums.

We can’t hear, smell or sense wireless radiation, and our technology and desire for WIFI is expected to increase by 900% in the next 5 years. So we know that we can’t get away from wireless however there are things we can do.

There are over 10,000 studies have been done on the effects of PEMFs which are Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields. NASA has been studying low frequency based PEMF benefits for years.

We have approximately 100 Trillion cells in our body and the voltage of each cell is between 70 mV and 90 mV. When our cells are unhealthy or sick they are 40-50 mV and with cancer it can be as low as 20-30 mV. Proof that we are electro magnetic beings who are affected by electro magnetic energy. Not only do we resonate with the earth but we resonate with each other as well. When our cells are weakened and begin to clump and get stacked (called the Rouleau effect), disease can be created.

When we strengthen our cells with PEMF, our cells become energized with that positive charge and separate and repel each other.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Nikola Tesla

PEMFS HOW IT WORKS

PEMF or Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields can help to raise the voltage in the body up to 70-90 mV, which is the ideal voltage for optimal health. PEMF has been approved by the FDA and recently with Health Canada for a number of conditions.

When cells work at their optimal level, the cell charge is optimized and cells can then absorb nutrients, minerals, oxygen and can naturally eliminate toxins. This way the body can do what it does best: repair, regenerate, and rejuvenate itself.

PEMF systems (low frequency based) like the iMRS (Intelligent magnetic resonance stimulation) are gaining recognition for their ease of use both in the home and for the professional with over 1 million users and counting. It also has a biorhythm clock, an application for Brain Entrainment, and a bio feedback system. The latest product is called the Omnium 1 and is a comprehensive health interface designed to offer wellness applications like PEMF and uses NASA tested and proven coil technology. It is compact and easy to take with you while you travel, so you will never be without. The system can be used for as little as 8 minutes twice a day for optimal benefit - which can last up to 6 hours.

For businesses, it can help your employees with mental clarity, focus and productivity to help manage on the job stress. It can also help with pain and inflammation and improves circulation and immune system function. PEMF can provide optimal overall vitality and is something used by the clients we service everyday.

The iMRS, which uses saw-tooth & square wave technology, is now a class II medical device from Health Canada. Doctor’s can now prescribe them to their patients as a valuable tool in their client’s health. FDA has approved PEMF technology for the healing of non-union bone fracture, and depression.

With this knowledge and awareness people are now looking to a shift to energy medicine and natural healing, where we look at the body and its healing model differently. With PEMF enhancing and improving the absorption of oxygen, it allows nutrients to be taken in and delivered better.
