Little Lakes Valley Eastern Sierra October 2011
Elevation 10,200 ft. Three women arrive at the trailhead…the first sporting pink hiking attire embroidered with the peace sign, followed by another wearing a “Code Pink” emblem on her sweatshirt and the third styling a pink lily stitched to her hat. I turned to watch as they ascended the boulder path with outstretched arms and heard audible breaths of awe and gratitude.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and “Code Pink” is everywhere reminding us that we need change.
Changing the way we value of our finite time, the ways in which we care for our health, and our beliefs about what is possible … is our work.
Catastrophic disease, a near death experience, and other lasting losses hold the potential to bury us or somehow bring us to life by shearing away the conditioning dullness of unquestioned routines too often laid over lives and possibilities and revealing our true essence and impassioned spirits.
The women who have been to the edge know the value of life: we are born to love our precious lives, each other, and all Nature.
Living this is our cure.
Epidemiologists have confirmed that the sunshine Vitamin D3 is a preventative for Breast and Colon cancers, Diabetes Type II, and MS. Although the research is twenty-five years along we may have only determined a few of the astonishing and health affirming benefits of D3.
The science and data which verifies supplementation with D3 as a preventative measure is beyond question. The recommended daily dosage being considered for D3 is from 4,000 IU to 8,000 IU.
Be well, why wait?
“Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
