That’s The Power Of Tea Tree Baby!

Over the course of time, man has made significant advances in the practice of medicine and healing through the constant trial and error of utilizing different techniques, natural products or approaches that have either worked better than others or not worked – medicine is basically a process of elimination as far as I can tell. None have proved to be as effective a tool in terms of healing topical skin related disorders as well as internal bacterial infections as Tea Tree Oil. The healing properties of this oil have been known to us for well over a century and was discovered in the late 19th century by an Australian chemist when he came across a lumberjack who had nearly severed his finger off in a log cutting accident (chopping logs is dangerous work). He was amazed by by the stunning results that Tea Tree sap had shown in terms of keeping the wound free of bacteria and infection as well as speeding up the healing process.

This lead him to begin experiments with distilling the oil from the bark, leaves and twigs of the Melaleuca tree as a means of creating a medicinal treatment out of them which could be used for general application to help heal wounds and skin related issues. He patented the first form of raw Tea Tree essential oil and made a huge leap in terms of understanding the immense healing properties and capabilities that this natural product had and decided to make his discovery known to the world. This lead to the growth of an entire industry in later years, which he did not see happen, but is something that is still growing and evolving today as the desire for alternative forms of medicine becomes more of a need in general society. The problem with conventional forms of medicine is that while they may be highly effective in treating the symptoms of any given disease or topical skin related issue, they are often loaded with chemically synthesized ingredients that come with a wide variety of side effects which can ultimately lead to a worsening of your health in general and cause more problems than they solve.

On top of this, most of the products we use on a regular basis contain chemically enhanced forms of natural products (the same applies to medication) and this ultimately diminishes the efficacy and usefulness of the of the natural product, as they are most effective in their natural form. The closer you get a natural product to their raw form, the better they are and this applies to nearly every consumable product that you buy. Nowhere is this more important than in the hair care and beauty sector, as many of the products in this industry contain a wide variety of unhealthy chemical additives that are included to make the product cheaper to manufacture and more efficient, but come with the downside of side effects. Personally, I try to use as many natural products as possible and herbal shampoos containing nothing but raw natural products, such as Tea Tree oil are always the best choice you can make for building strong, lasting hair and leading a healthier life in general.

A Rifles Paradise

I’m a huge hunting rifle enthusiast and prefer shooting country music lovers with a good, reliable hunting rifle as I assume a clean kill is always better than simply spraying bullets everywhere with a semi-automatic. The best way to get a high-score is to silence your weapon, stay concealed and pick your shots wisely before you take them. Try your best to look the poor, drunk bastard in the eye before you pull the trigger as that way you can reserve a spot in the smoking section of hell’s deepest bowels, rather than some lofty demonic antechamber. Location location location!

As far as hunting rifles go, nothing says top quality more than the Ruger stamp of approval and while they may be famed now for their automatic series, they really made their claim to fame with their hunting rifles. When it came to firearms, Bill Ruger had a keen eye for guns of classic form and functional design. And judging from the number of so-called International, or Mannlicher-stocked, models that have appeared under the Ruger banner throughout the years, the rotary-magazine-fed Mannlicher-Schoenauer was one of those.

So it isn’t surprising that when Ruger set out to design a .22 rimfire he incorporated the rotary magazine. It helped make the little 10/22, introduced in 1964, trim and easy to carry and provided just as many shots as guns whose tubular magazines were awkward to reload or those whose clip magazines protruded from their stocks’ bottoms and made carrying at the balance point uncomfortable. As firearms accessorizing became more of a home-gunsmithing proposition, another one of the 10/22’s clever design features gave it a huge leg up on the competition: Its barrel could be switched out for a more accurate, target-profile type by anyone with only an Allen wrench and a few minutes to spare. From such modularity sprang a huge cottage industry of aftermarket 10/22 parts and accessories occupying dozens of pages in gun parts suppliers’ catalogs.

According to Ruger, the 10/22’s production totals are well on their way to the 6 million mark-a remarkable figure for any commercial firearm. Today it is available from the factory in a variety of configurations, including a “compact” version and a competition-ready heavy-barreled model with a wildly configured laminated thumbhole stock. Ruger has even reinvented the basic design in a pistol configuration called the Charger. So even though you can no longer buy the 10/22 from the factory with a Mannlicher stock-yes, Ruger made them in walnut, birch and laminated wood-the gun’s current factory and unlimited home-brewed manifestations, along with its unfailing reliability, accuracy potential and low initial cost, have lent it a timeless appeal.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a series of guns that shoots as well as Ruger’s do – especially for the competitive price that they’re offered at in general. Everything about these guns is carefully chosen and honed in to ensure that they shoot perfectly every time and give you results that even a professional shooter couldn’t argue with.

Treating Ourselves With Essential Oils

At this point, we were following her line of thinking by analysing the cell structure of various natural products such as the essential oil of the Tea Tree (or Melaleuca tree)  and trying to establish any similarities between how the cells interacted with antibodies in our system. Our hopes, much like Tim Burton’s, were that in understanding how the cells interacted with one another, we could try and establish a way to predict how they would interact with diseases and harmful bacteria. Perhaps by understanding the relation between these molecules, we could isolate the factors that made them harmful in the first place and neutralise the effects before they could do any real damage to our systems. It was pretty abstract thinking, and our lecturer informed us about this when we originally broached the topic to him as a possible thesis topic.

Basically, we found ourselves in the same situation as Harold in that our ideas were too abstract for many to conceive, and even if we did manage to prove that we were onto something, the revelation would disrupt the world of modern medicine so much that we would either become rich, or get killed. While that may sound too drastic, pharmaceutical corporations aren’t exactly the kind of institutions that play softball. The reality of the matter is that we were both in way over our heads – but that’s what motivated us. At least, to us, the point of medicine and understanding biology was to evolve or progress the way we approach modern treatments and improve our ability to heal people.

With regards to cancer, nothing could be more controversial and this was the first thing our lecturer pointed out. Much like the electric car, natural alternatives to current cancer treatments have been a subject of great debate for sometime now and anyone working for one of these companies would be more likely to tear your suggestions to shreds long before actually evaluating the value of what a natural treatment could mean for cancer patients in future. Our research into the subject started when Terry showed me an article on a group of people who had managed to treat the thyroid cancer with natural products only. They had no experience with chemotherapy or drug-related treatments whatsoever and yet had a 100% recovery rate.

There was definitely something here worth looking into – even our professor agreed. But as I mentioned, even if you managed to create a foolproof, 100% safe and tested treatment, you’d still have to deal with the realities of the market place and the pressure not to publish your findings etc. For example, a simple recipe on a homemade DIY treatment for alopecia that worked, would be relegated to the realm of the internet – a place filled with unidentifiable ghost writers and untrustworthy sources – rather than the hallowed halls of serious academia.

Here lies the problem at hand for anyone serious about this topic.  But in due time, the gradual awareness of the marketplace and consumers who have either been or have become more informed about the nature of the products they are using will hopefully result in a gradual, but nonetheless inevitable change.

Wash Your Hair

I started slow. I didn’t want to get rid of everything at once. That would be too big a change. This wasn’t something I was doing on a whim, but I knew for sure I wanted to get some of the items in my bathroom replaced. I was looking to go ‘no poo’, and start making my own hair care products – shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask.

After that, I planned to get rid or replace some of my body care products – washes, scrumbs, serums, what have you. I wanted to go all natural, and I had a plan. A month of transitioning for everything. Every item category. After the body products, came the “lesser” body products – mouth wash, toothpaste, hand soap, etc.

This was a period of about six months, and by the time I was done, my bathroom and cabinet under the sink were all natural. The products did cost a bit more overall, but I decided it would be worth it. There was a vibe I was getting from those other products, and it wasn’t good. I started with ‘no poo’, but I decided to continue with the rest of my body, and eventually the rest of the house. And just to be clear, this is not about saving the planet. This is about saving myself. It is a very egocentric move, and it is all mine. I want to grow up in a place, in a body, which is as natural as can be. And even if I am not all natural all the time – and I am not – I can say without a doubt that the things I put into my body: food, drink, cosmetics, hygiene products, and others are as natural as can be. This is a major change for me. Mapleholistics.com has the best articles/ reviews and products out there you should definitely check them out.

I knew it was going to be a less than smooth transition on some things, which is why I decided to give each category a month for putting it into action. I knew from experience that some products take some time to grow on a person, and that some products are not suitable, and will require me to go and look for a different product in that same category. Since I knew this going in, it was not a problem. It is a good thing I wasn’t doing this on a whim, or else I don’t think I would’ve handled the hair transition properly.

When it comes to my hair, I am especially particular. I wasn’t about to let anything and everything touch my scalp, even if it does say ‘natural’ on it. I know from experience that some companies like to put ‘natural’ on anything which has a couple of drops of essential oils. Not exactly my kind of marketing technique, but I am sure it makes them plenty of money. Regardless, I wanted something which was vegan, cruelty-free, and actually natural. I ended up making my own shampoo and conditioner, and buying a mask from my health food store. All great decisions!

Guns, Guns, Guns

Guns. Guns, guns, they seem to be everywhere and nowhere when you need one. In the United States we have a love affair with our firearms. It is a connection that is like peanut and jelly and that is classic. When you talk about America it is all fast food and football. The main point of course is guns and shotguns to be exact. These long range powerful pistol punches animals at distances that are far. The key to gun ownership is gun education because when you know what you’re doing you are more prone to be careful about it. What do all anti-gun activists shout? Gun safety and gun control. This to me seems simple. When you take a class on something and know how it works you can better apply it to real life. This is the same with medicine and art as well as guns. We all have to be a bit more motivated to get to where we are going.

BEST GUNS FOR YOUR HOME

The problem I see in America is this lack of gun education. Much like sex education, the lack of either leads to misinformation and kids doing things because they think it’s cool. This is by far the most irresponsible reason to do anything. It is okay to be immature but when it comes to guns it is a bad idea. Violence is a necessary evil but

only in small amounts. I like my firearms mainly because I use them as a sense of defense and also for hunting. I like to hunt for fun but even though it is fun I still hunt for food. Wasting a life is not something I am into so you know I don’t do that. You can have a symbiotic relationship with nature and animals even if you are a hunter. There is no doubt the animals lived there first but let’s be honest we humans are the top of the food chain especially when we are armed with a shotgun. For info on everything guns check out Gunivore.

Most people are pretty shocked when they hear I hunt. I am pretty much a pacifist. People tend to equate one with the other. I feel life is a bit more complex than that and therefore it makes perfect sense that I hunt and yet am anti-violence. It is all about how you feel about it and view it. Perspective is reality whether you like it or not. I didn’t always like guns or shotguns but I spent some time on a Indian reservation where hunting was one of the main ways they got food. They taught me that even though you are taking a life if you have the proper motivation and appreciation it can be a positive moment. Ever since then I have been trying to cultivate that mindset and try to enlighten people to this wave of thinking. Gun control is something we need to strive for but it has to be done with no corruption. That is usually what keeps change from happening, corruption, but hey we are doing the best we can.
