What are PUMPKINS really good for?


It’s Halloween!!!!

The nutritional value of pumpkins

Time for pumpkins, lanterns, candy, candy, spiders and spider webs, haunted houses and candy, candy and ghosts, haunted houses and goblins. Scarecrows and more candy!!!! Whewwwwww.

Some things amaze me about Halloween.

  • People go out of their way to create something which is intended to scare people.
  • People. Ironically, are more amused than scared.
  • Goblins, ghosts and witches all of a sudden come out in the daytime.
  • People buy candy to give as gifts to kids who can’t eat it, because they can’t trust people who give them candy.
  • So the only one who benefits are the people selling the candy.

And this activity is so powerful, that adults hesitate to say no to children, even when they don’t believe in it themselves.

The tradition now is for churches and parents who want to dissuade children from taking part in Halloween related events, and “trick or treating” to provide a substitute activity. I never got the wisdom in that. It goes in the same category of electronic cigarettes. “The real thing is bad, but we can still do it in a different way.” We know we are still inhaling chemicals, but at least there is no smoke to offend anyone.  “And then we tell children to “Just say no” Is there something wrong with saying “no” without a “BUT”.

Hi, Thanks so much for returning to check out what we are talking about here on “Health And Wealth Builders Intl.”

This article is a follow up to the last one on how chronic inflammation is created, and the dangers of it. 

I actually was not planning on the topic of inflammation being a two part article, but it seems to have resonated with a lot of readers. One reader asked for an insight into what foods cause inflammation.


To quickly recap the basics on inflammation in the body:

  • Inflammation can be very dangerous to your HEALTH and WELLNESS.

    Inflammation can be very dangerous to your HEALTH and WELLNESS.

    Inflammation is the body’s response to physical injury. The body’s immune system sends proteins and white blood cells to the site to start the healing process.

  • Interaction of cells with oxygen sometimes causes damage. The damaged cells are called free radicals which attack good cells. (This is known as oxidative stress)
  • In the case of damage caused by excessive free radicals, the injury becomes chronic and continuous so the inflammatory response is also chronic and continuous.
  • Inflammation build up in the body causes all kinds of illnesses. (some argue most illnesses)
  • All medical names for inflammatory conditions end in “..its”. As in bronchitis or arthritis.
  • Anti-oxidants combat this kind of oxidation of cells, and limit the need for these inflammatory responses.
  • If you are not sure if you are getting enough anti-oxidant support, go here.

Start where you are. Work towards your NEW NORMAL

Start where you are. Work towards your NEW NORMAL

We are being led to believe that many illnesses which we encounter later in life are normal. We learn from the outside influences to accept them and maintain them until they overcome us.This may be good for others but certainly not for our personal HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

I can guess who watches the programs on television, based on the ads that are run. Talk about target audience?
We network marketers can learn a thing or two from the media and Neilson, and how we are targeted.

If you watch world news, you hear about erectile dysfunction, bladder leakage, AARP supplemental insurance, and Alzheimer’s medication. You know who is watching at this time, and who isn’t. If you believe them you think it is normal and you should just make yourself comfortable in whatever state you find yourself. Plus it is deeply implied that you are not alone. Just join the crowd and work with it. It goes along with the …happy to be alive…. mindset. Read the rest of this entry
