Vampires Beware: It’s National Garlic Month!


Find out how to use garlic as an organic pesticide, and ways PlantCatalyst® can help gardeners grow this and other crops.


Here at Dr. Willard’s®, we love to honor all celebrations, especially ones that bring awareness to ways we can improve our health! We are excited to celebrate National Garlic Month. Garlic has been used for at least 6,000 years around the world, and not just because of its taste (think garlic bread), but also because of its miraculous properties.

Garlic contains a host of healthy nutrients, such as protein, vitamins A, B-1 and C, as well as iron, calcium, magnesium and amino acids. Not only does it contain anti-viral properties to keep us from getting sick, but it also has antifeedant, antibacterial, antifungal, insecticidal and anti-repellent properties, which makes it the perfect gardening tool as an organic pesticide.

What is a Pesticide?

Pesticide is a substance that is used for a variety of different purposes; insecticides control garden pests, while herbicides are used as weed killers. Pesticides are fairly common in the US, where 85 percent of families own at least one form of pesticide. Although it’s easy to pick up a can or bottle of pesticide at a local store, more and more people are finding out about the dangers of using synthetic versions.

What are the Dangers of Using Synthetic Pesticides?

More and more information is coming out about the dangers of synthetic pesticides. Not only can they lead to a myriad of serious health concerns, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, ADHD, birth defects, as well as problems for our reproductive and nervous systems, but they also negatively affect our environment.

Pesticides may be responsible for disrupting the ecosystem by the runoff that kills fish and other water creatures, polluting groundwater supplies and harming wildlife through a process called volatilization, when the substance turns into vapor or gas, and travels through air, being inhaled by wildlife.

Why is Garlic a Better Alternative to Synthetic Pesticides?

To prevent the health and environmental concerns caused by synthetic pesticides, yet still control pests and weeds in your garden, turn to organic pesticides, such as garlic. This vegetable is not only much more affordable than store-bought solutions, it is also all natural and contains no toxins. According to a source, garlic will work with healthy soil to attract healthy pests that are needed in your garden, while controlling unwanted ones.

What are the Best Ways to Use Garlic as a Pesticide?

There are a variety of ways to use garlic as a pesticide; these include:

Garlic Spray

Remove the outer skin and crush 5 medium garlic bulbs in a garlic press. Mix with a half liter of water and leave to soak for 6 hours or more. Add potash-based soap and strain using a fine cloth into a glass jar, closing with a lid.

To use, dilute the mix by adding 4 liters of water, and use immediately at least once a week. Stop spraying a month being harvest to prevent the strong garlic taste from permeating the fruits or vegetables.

Garlic Soil Drench

Nematodes are translucent, unsegmented pests that attack healthy plants. Although they are tiny, about 1/50 inch long, they can cause serious damage to roots, stems and leaves of healthy plants, especially cherry tomatoes, peppers, carrots, corn, lettuce, potatoes, onions, rye, alfalfa and chrysanthemums.

To prevent these pests, as well as fungus, from destroying your vegetable garden, use a garlic soil drench. To make, juice garlic, and add 5 gallons of water to half a cup of garlic juice. Spray or water the mixture over the plants.

Garlic Pepper Tea

To kill white flies, aphids, spider mites, and other pests, make garlic pepper tea. Blend two garlic bulbs and two hot peppers in a blender while it’s half-full with water. Strain, pour into a 1-gallon container and fill with water. To apply to infested plants, mix ¼ cup with a gallon of water and spray.

PlantCatalyst®
The best way to utilize garlic as an organic pesticide is to use fresh garlic that has been raised without toxic ingredients. Don’t trust store bought garlic, grow it yourself!

To grow healthier, stronger and more abundant garlic, turn to PlantCatalyst®. Our product works with fertilizers in order to help grow crops faster, while increasing germination and strengthening roots! Several studies have been able to prove that PlantCatalyst® can increase germination, strength and yield even if fertilizer use has been cut by 50 percent!

Don’t forget to complete your organic gardener’s toolbox with our signature agricultural product, PlantCatalyst®!

What Leading Experts Have To Say About EMF

Natural Healing Tools

"The problem is, man-made electromagnetic exposures aren’t “normal.” They are artificial artifacts, with unusual intensities, signaling characteristics, pulsing patterns, and wave forms, that don’t exist in nature. And they can misdirect cells in myriad ways. Every aspect of the ecosystem may be affected, including all living species from animals, humans, plants and even microorganisms in water and soil.”
B. Blake Levitt Former New York Times journalist and author Electromagnetic Fields, A Consumer’s Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves and Editor of Cell Towers, Wireless Convenience? Or Environmental Hazard?

“Very recently, new research is suggesting that nearly all the human plagues which emerged in the twentieth century, like common acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children, female breast cancer, malignant melanoma and asthma, can be tied to some facet of our use of electricity.  There is an urgent need for governments and individuals to take steps to minimize community and personal EMF exposures.”
Samuel Milham MD, MPH Medical epidemiologist in occupational epidemiology. Researcher — First scientist to report increased cancers in electrical workers and to link childhood leukemia with the spread of residential electrification.

“Federal and State public heath agencies are not officially addressing what many concerned scientists and medical doctors now see as an emerging public health problem. There are no health surveillance or remedial response systems in place to advise citizens about electromagnetic radiation  exposure (EMR). As wireless technology evolves, ambient background levels increase, creating electrical pollution conditions which are becoming ubiquitous and more invasive.”
Libby Kelley, MA Managing Secretariat International Commission For Electromagnetic Safety; Founder, Council on Wireless Technology Impacts; EMF environmental consultant,
Co-Producer of documentary, “Public Exposure: DNA, Democracy and the Wireless Revolution”

"The January 2008 report issued by the National Academy of Sciences committee whose task was to examine the needs and gaps in the research on the biological effects of exposure to these antennas points out that the research studies to date do not adequately represent exposure realities. … A federal research strategy to address these very serious inadequacies in the science on which our government is basing health policy is sorely needed now.”
J. Newton President, The EMR Policy Institute www.EMRPolicy.org

“We are compelled to confirm the existence of non-thermal effects of electromagnetic fields on living matter, which seem to occur at every level of investigation from molecular to epidemiological. Recent epidemiological evidence is stronger than before. We recognize the growing public health problem known as electro-hypersensitivity. We strongly advise limited use of cell phones, and other similar devices, by young children and teenagers, and we call upon governments to apply the Precautionary Principle as an interim measure while more biologically relevant exposure standards are developed.” (partial statement)
The Venice Resolution, initiated by the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) on June 6, 2008, and now signed by nearly 50 peer reviewed scientists worldwide.

“We are constantly being bathed in an increasing sea of radiation from exposure to the above, as well as electrical appliances, computers, Bluetooth devices, Wi-Fi installations and over 2,000 communications satellites in outer space that shower us with signals to GPS receivers. New WiMax transmitters on cell phone towers that have a range of up to two square miles compared to Wi-Fi’s 300 feet will soon turn the core of North America into one huge electromagnetic hot spot. Children are more severely affected because their brains are developing and their skulls are thinner.”
Paul J. Rosch, MD Clinical Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry, New York Medical College;

“Radio frequency radiation and other forms of electromagnetic pollution are harmful at orders of magnitude well below existing guidelines. Science is one of the tools society uses to decide health policy. In the case of telecommunications equipment, such as cell phones, wireless networks, cell phone antennas, PDAs, and portable phones, the science is being ignored.”
Magda Havas, PhD Associate Professor, Environment & Resource Studies, Trent University, Canada.

“Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is the emerging health problem of the 21st century.  It is imperative health practitioners, governments, schools and parents learn more about it. The human health stakes are significant.”
William Rea, MD Founder & Director of the Environmental Health Center, Dallas Past President, American Academy of Environmental Medicine

“There is no question EMFs have a major effect on neurological functioning. They slow our brain waves and affect our long-term mental clarity. We should minimize exposures as much as possible to optimize neurotransmitter levels and prevent deterioration of health.”
Eric Braverman, MD Brain researcher, Author The Edge Effect, and Director of Path Medical in New York City and The PATH Foundation.

"Yes, electromagnetic  radiation can harm human health, and the dangers are all around us. Read what Doctors have to say: “If Mobile Phones Were a Type of Food, They Simply Would Not be Licensed,"
Dr. Gerald Hyland The Lancet

“The evidence for risks from prolonged cell phone and cordless phone use is quite strong. For people who have used them for 10 years or longer, mainly on one side of the head, the risk of malignant brain tumor is doubled for adults and is even higher for persons with first use before age 20.”
Brain tumor specialist Dr. Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, Orebro University Hospital in Sweden

“There is a strong evidence that EMFs and radio/microwave frequencies are associated with accelerated aging (enhanced cell death and cancer) and moods, depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence, primarily through alteration of cellular calcium ions and the melatonin/serotonin balance.”
Dr. Neil Cherry of Lincoln University, New Zealand

Utility Smart Meter EMF Concerns


Groups such as, The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), an international organization representing physicians who specialize in Environmental Medicine issued the following recommendations listed below in their 2012 position paper, “Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Field Effect on Human Health.”

As noted on the AAEM website, member physicians have earned a recognized M.D. or D.O. degree by an accredited medical school in the United States, Canada or other countries and maintain current licensure to practice medicine. Most AAEM physician members are board certified by one or more of the 24 medical specialty boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties.

The AAEM calls for:

  • Immediate caution on smart meter installation due to potentially harmful RF exposure.
  • Accommodation for health considerations regarding EMF and RF exposure, including exposure to wireless smart meter technology.
  • Independent studies to further understand the health effects from EMF and RF exposure.
  • Use of safer technology, including for smart meters, such as hard-wiring, fiber optics, or other non-harmful methods of data transmission.
  • Recognition that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a growing problem worldwide.
  • Understanding and control of this electrical environmental bombardment for the protection of society.
  • Consideration and independent research regarding the quantum effects of EMF and RF on human health

 Dangers of Pulsed Radiation Signals

A particular concern of many EMF public action groups are the unknown risk of wireless meters sending strong and short pulsed RF/microwaves. California citizen action groups are among the most active in organizing and petitioning legislators to hold public hearings on EMF health concerns. For example, California citizen action groups organized to request full disclosure from Pacific Gas & Electric about the technical and operational features of their smart meter signals. The public record of the information discussed includes testimony regarding RF pulse signaling with estimates ranging from 9,600 to the upper range of 190,000 daily pulse bursts.

The bioeffects of pulsed radiation has not been studied and many consumers are now reporting a wide range of ill health effects! As a result of community group pressures, some utilities are beginning to respond to consumer requests to adapt their smart meters to transmit once a day – versus every minute. However, it does little to address RF transmitted from neighbors, multi-unit dwellings or utility collector meter installations. The highest risk from smart meters is the layered impact from all of the meters within a community transmitting chaotic fields at least every fifteen minutes.

April is Cancer Control Month

Did you know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women are at risk of developing cancer? While those statistics are certainly frightening, the good news is that we can make lifestyle changes that will reduce our risk of getting cancer.

What are the Most Common Types of Cancer?

It’s important to know the most common types of cancers so you can discuss how to prevent them with your doctor . It is also advantageous to know your family history in order to see if you are genetically predisposed to certain kinds of cancer. The most common forms of cancer in 2016, according to National Cancer Institute (NIH) were:

  • breast cancer
  • lung and bronchus cancer
  • prostate cancer
  • colon and rectum cancer
  • bladder cancer
  • melanoma of the skin
  • non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • thyroid cancer
  • kidney and renal pelvis cancer
  • Leukemia
  • endometrial cancer
  • pancreatic cancer

Cancer Prevention

Although none of us can change our genetic predisposition, we can make changes in our lifestyle to help us prevent and beat cancer!

Changing Your Diet
 
Many of us lead busy lives that don’t leave much time to focus on our diet. We may stop by a coffee shop to grab a pastry in the morning, grab fast food during our lunch break and order pizza for dinner.

Americans are eating bigger and unhealthier portions of food than ever before. 

This is bad news for our health, as our diet can either prevent or cause a multitude of health concerns. The cancer prevention diet is very similar to the recommended diet to stop other serious problems, such as heart disease, in their tracts. This diet includes:

  • Plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes: Opt for fresh, local and organic fruits and vegetables when you have the chance to avoid common pesticides and herbicides which can cause health problems. Fill 50 percent of your plate with fruits and vegetables, and at least 50 percent of your grains should be whole grains.
  • Cut your red meat: Although Americans love hot dogs, hamburgers and steak, doctors advise cutting our red and processed meat portions to 18 ounces per week to prevent cancer. Instead, get your fill of healthy proteins from other sources, such as beans, poultry, nuts and eggs.
  • Cut the salt – Sodium, the main ingredient in salt, may be responsible for raising your cancer risk, especially when it comes to stomach cancer. While our bodies need sodium in order to properly function, many Americans are eating up to three times the recommended dose! Learn to read food labels to measure how much salt you are consuming on a daily basis!

Exercise

The World Cancer Research Fund found that up to 20 percent of cancers in the US are caused by body fatness and lack of physical activity. While changing your diet can help you lose weight, exercising can help with that goal as well as get you moving! Recent research has proved that exercise can reduce up to 13 cancers.

The MD Anderson Cancer Center recommends “at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week or 75 minutes of more vigorous exercise each week.”

Vigorous exercise include running, swimming and fast cardio. Moderate exercise includes walking, jogging and yoga. In fact, yoga can help fight cancer in the following five ways, according to a source:

* improving your immune system
* detoxification
* developing strong bones
* stress management
* weight management

Vitamins and Supplements

It’s very important to supplement our diet since our soil depletion has caused most of our fruits and vegetables to be depleted of vitamins and become less nutritious. Boost your cancer diet with the following supplements to reduce cancer risk:

Vitamin D

Vitamin D has been proven to help fight cancer in numerous studies, yet “ more than 80 percent of Americans had adequate vitamin D levels in their blood,” according to that source. 

For supplement suggestions with Vitamin D, shop here.

Omega's

Certain types of cancers prevention is helped with adding Omega 3 to your diet. Specifically believed to help prevent certain types of cancers caused by chronic inflammation.

Food rich in Omega 3 include fatty fish like salmon and cod, flaxseed, and wheat germ. 

To supplement Omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil is the most common thought. If you choose fish oil, try Cod Liver Oil like that from Springreen. It is liquid and de-salinated. Which means, it has not been cooked above a temperature to eliminate the benefits of the Omega 3. This is why it is kept as a liquid. Talk to your medical team before starting fish oil supplement, as too much fish oil may actually cause some cancers, such as prostate cancer.

Flaxseed based supplements are a good alternative for fish oil pills. 

Antioxidants

Antioxidants fight free radicals caused by diet, alcohol and the environment, that cause us to age and get sick. As such, they are called “free radical scavengers.” Antioxidants can be found in a host of foods, such as cranberries, green tea and artichokes. 

To maximize their benefits, you can also take supplements (linked to suggested supplements) that contain antioxidants, such as beta-carotene and Vitamin E.


Dr. Willard’s® Wants to Help You Cut Your Risk During April Cancer Control Month, which is a perfect opportunity to learn how to reduce your risk of cancer! 

Dr. Willard’s® goal is to help all of our customers lead healthier lives – which is why we want to help you learn cancer-preventative strategies.

The hidden problem that many people are not aware of when trying to improve their diet and taking supplements has to do with our body’s absorb-ability limitation. This means that just because we take Vitamin E, doesn’t mean our body is able to absorb all of it into our bloodstream. As such, a large portion of the nutrients we try to put into our bodies simply get secreted through our urine.
The patented catalyst in this formula helps our bodies digest more vitamins and nutrients, especially antioxidants and green tea!

Gardener Alert! Time to Perfect Your Gardening Routine

April is a busy time for most gardeners, who must “spring” into gardening to ensure a bountiful harvest come summertime. Although this has been one of the warmest winters in recent years around the country, many parts of the U.S. still experienced harsh weather and frost.

Although spring has just officially sprung but may not feel like it where you are, it is a good time to start working on your garden as the frost is likely loosening up in the southern parts of the country. Check out Dr. Willard’s® March to do list to see what you should concentrate on this month.

Test Your Soil

Soil varies depending on the type in your garden, it’s pH levels, micro and macronutrients and acidity. Flowers and plants prefer a specific type of soil; the only way to make sure your garden has the right type is to perform a test of your soil.

This is an inexpensive process, typically less than $30, but can provide you with insightful information about the nutrient levels of your soil, as well as alert you to any unhealthy levels of arsenic, lead or other toxic metals that can be found in soil, especially in urban environments.

A soil test can provide you with advice on what amendments your soil can benefit from for your gardening needs. You can purchase do-it-yourself kits at local gardening stores or send soil samples to labs that can provide more detailed information and recommendations.

Know Your Hardiness Zones

As the U.S. is a big country, gardening recommendations vary based on the region you reside in. Check the map of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones guide to find your zone, and what plants will thrive in your area. Understanding gardening guides and tips for your area will help you save time and money by planting the right things at the right time. Here are general tips on March gardening by part of the country:

Pacific Northwest
  • Mulch
  • Hunt slugs and set maggot traps
  • Deadhead early bloomers
  • Start seeds indoors
Midwest
  • Start seeds indoors
  • Prune shrubs
  • Spray fruit trees
Mid-Atlantic
  • Prune roses
  • Don’t plant bulbs, tubers, shrubs, fruits or vegetables until the last expected frost
Northeast
  • Start seeds indoors
  • Remove mulch at the end of March
Southwest
  • Pull mulch back
  • Start growing melons, peppers and tomatoes indoors
  • After last frost, plant corn, potatoes and beets outside
Southeast
  • Plant cool season vegetables, like peas, cabbage and chard
  • Plant cool season flowers and berries
  • Start warm season vegetable seeds, like tomatoes and peppers indoors

Can the world’s first underwater greenhouses revolutionize farming?

Found this article very interesting to where agriculture is going...

(Inhabitat)  Italian divers at the Ocean Reef Group have taken the concept of sustainable farming and blown it out of the water – or, rather, underwater. The world’s first underwater greenhouses, named Nemo’s Garden, have been anchored off the coast of Noli, Italy. So far, five biospheres are providing near-perfect conditions for crops of beans, strawberries, basil, and lettuce and the potential continues to grow.

While growing plants underwater may seem nonsensical or difficult, the designers argue that the constant temperatures and high humidity are excellent for plants, allowing for a continuous cycle of condensation and “rain.” The abundance of carbon dioxide also allows for crops to grow at a rapid pace. The project has been off the ground and into the waters for about four years, with some bumps along the way, yet five greenhouses have been established so far, with more to come. Only 20 feet under the surface, the greenhouses are even more practical than expected.

Having a good chance for consistent production and no need for conventional pesticides of above-ground crops is a good thing, yet the innovative idea begs the question: what is the impact on the surrounding ecosystem? The Ocean Reef Group is dedicated to further research, and their findings so far show that the local wildlife is taking well to the biospheres and they seem to have little to no ill effect. Crabs and octopi all have been observed taking shelter under the spheres and seahorses have been seen creating nurseries for their adorable seahorse families. This experimental project, which provides a high yield of produce and little adverse impact on the environment, sounds perfect for developing countries, which have difficulty growing crops in arid soil. The project hopes to expand its greenhouses to new terrories, develop a small, at-home model for everyday citizens, and will launch a Kickstarter campaign for these efforts soon.
