Fear…No Fear?

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on October 28, 2009

My greatest fear isn’t H1N1 or an asteroid or 2012… My greatest fear is we are being programmed TO fear. Discretion is an under used word!

The importance of listening to your body

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on December 18, 2007

I’ve been busy compiling some information to share in the new year about health (since that is when we all think about it, AFTER the big gorgefest) and came across something that is worth a look by EVERYONE.  I’ve got the links to the articles listed.  I PROMISE you won’t be disappointed if you read this information. 

 What your body is trying to tell you:

Hair  (I’d LOVE for my hair to gray like that)

Nails   (I thought I knew about nails…well apparently not everything)

Tongue  (a little tongue hair never hurt anyone)

Urine   (people of middle age…unite!)

Bowel Movements  (MUST READ, especially if you suspect your child has a problem)

Sally Wadyka for MSN Health & Fitness wrote these and did an excellent job.  Quick, consice information about a look at the overall health of your body.

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on November 21, 2007

I’ve been wondering and wondering when I was going to find an article, blog, someone in the media to point out the obvious ….

 AUTISM….TOYS with lead from CHINA…..CONNECTION???????

Ding, ding, ding, ding



Okay, don’t beat up on me…this is a bit of tongue in cheek…but not many out there are writing about this.

Autism and the Amish Revisited

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on October 29, 2007


Autism and the Amish Revisited

 Recently at the Y I picked up a free copy of Chiropractic Wellness ( with no indication on the cover that an article about the aforementioned was within the pages.  The article has great points but most of which are not new ( 

I started wondering if many are jumping onto the Autism “band wagon.”   If their intentions are good then I say come right ahead and jump in there.  Keep it in the forefront for everyone to see so we can, at the VERY least, know how and why autism is on the rise and promote awareness.  I certainly wonder if all the childhood vaccines are playing a role but I’m not certain that is all there is to it.


 My main objective in discussing autism is that mothers become aware of the signs so they can be as proactive in their child’s care as possible. Early detection can possibly lead to great things because the development of their brain both physically and mentally is rapid in the first few years of life!

DUMB, DE, DUMB, DUMB…….DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on October 9, 2007

 DUMB, DE, DUMB, DUMB…….DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do I want this to stand out from my other posts?  YES!

Now available TUMS FOR KIDS!!!!   


I realize that companies out there want to get kids on the bandwagon as early as possible so they can GAIN BRAND LOYALTY for a LIFETIME.  BUT give me a BREAK!!!!!!


Before one rushes out to buy this product PLEASE think about what a child that needs TUMS is eating to cause the need for this OTC MEDICATION!

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve used Tums (as an adult over 40) on occasion and they were effective for a short term solution (that evening).  However, I could never use up the huge bottles they come in now.  (Can you say popping them like CANDY?) I sure couldn’t find the little rolls they used to come in either…wonder why?  HMMM???

I must ponder some questions:

Are drug companies targeting our kids?

Are we ready to put our kids on the road to dependence? 

Are drug companies about greed these days?

Can’t we remove the cause of THIS type of symptom (in most cases) by changing the diet?

Something to think about and be aware of so we aren’t DUMB, DE, DUMB, DUMB….DUMB!!!!!
