As we approach Mothers Day 2021, I am reminded of last year. Easter, spent alone and then Mother’s Day. I remember going to our parents house and saying how much I did NOT care what the Government was saying what we could and couldn’t do. My husband, kids and I stopped to see my Mom and two Grama’s. Sadly, we lost my husbands mom just two months before our wedding back in 2004.
If you are new to my blog, Mother’s Day is significant not just for my own mother and mother in law’s appreciation and gratitude for them, but to acknowledge my own journey to become a mother after our own journey through infertility.
This weekend a family member sent out a Zoom Mothers Day Chat for a couple weeks on Mother’s Day. The emotions over the past week have been slightly intense with this super full moon moving in and last night it hit me. I honestly feel like I am mourning family members… who are still living.
This is the reality and sadness of this current situation that we cannot seem to escape from. The control the various government entities continue to pile onto us as individuals, couples, families, parents, children, is beyond. The expectations are futile.
Enough is enough.
People must be empowered with the responsibility of their own health. Because lets look at reality, what I do for my health – is FOR ME. What I do for my kids health, educates them and empowers them and – is FOR THEM. Education is a HUGE piece of healthcare in our home. Actions and consequences. For an illness that has affected far less people than Cancer or Heart Disease. Both of which is in both sides of our family.
These numbers are from the US and reported by the CDC.
Taking this information into consideration, what are some ways to help heart disease.
What can I do to lower my risk of heart disease?
Fortunately, there are many things you can do to reduce your chances of getting heart disease:
- Control your blood pressure. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease. It is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly – at least once a year for most adults, and more often if you have high blood pressure. Take steps, including lifestyle changes, to prevent or control high blood pressure.
- Keep your cholesterol and triglyceride levels under control. High levels of cholesterol can clog your arteries and raise your risk of coronary artery disease and heart attack. Lifestyle changes and medicines (if needed) can lower your cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat in the blood. High levels of triglycerides may also raise the risk of coronary artery disease, especially in women.
- Stay at a healthy weight. Being overweight or having obesity can increase your risk for heart disease. This is mostly because they are linked to other heart disease risk factors, including high blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Controlling your weight can lower these risks.
- Eat a healthy diet. Try to limit saturated fats, foods high in sodium, and added sugars. Eat plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. The DASH diet is an example of an eating plan that can help you to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, two things that can lower your risk of heart disease.
- Get regular exercise. Exercise has many benefits, including strengthening your heart and improving your circulation. It can also help you maintain a healthy weight and lower cholesterol and blood pressure. All of these can lower your risk of heart disease.
- Limit alcohol. Drinking too much alcohol can raise your blood pressure. It also adds extra calories, which may cause weight gain. Both of those raise your risk of heart disease. Men should have no more than two alcoholic drinks per day, and women should not have more than one.
- Don’t smoke. Cigarette smoking raises your blood pressure and puts you at higher risk for heart attack and stroke. If you do not smoke, do not start. If you do smoke, quitting will lower your risk for heart disease. You can talk with your health care provider for help in finding the best way for you to quit.
- Manage stress. Stress is linked to heart disease in many ways. It can raise your blood pressure. Extreme stress can be a “trigger” for a heart attack. Also, some common ways of coping with stress, such as overeating, heavy drinking, and smoking, are bad for your heart. Some ways to help manage your stress include exercise, listening to music, focusing on something calm or peaceful, and meditating.
- Manage diabetes. Having diabetes doubles your risk of diabetic heart disease. That is because over time, high blood sugar from diabetes can damage your blood vessels and the nerves that control your heart and blood vessels. So, it is important to get tested for diabetes, and if you have it, to keep it under control.
- Make sure that you get enough sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, you raise your risk of high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. Those three things can raise your risk for heart disease. Most adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Make sure that you have good sleep habits. If you have frequent sleep problems, contact your health care provider. One problem, sleep apnea, causes people to briefly stop breathing many times during sleep. This interferes with your ability to get a good rest and can raise your risk of heart disease. If you think you might have it, ask your doctor about having a sleep study. And if you do have sleep apnea, make sure that you get treatment for it.
So interestingly enough, many of these points, also improve your immune function as well. Speaking from experience 100% but also,
Honestly, whats super concerning is the fear being injected into people through the mainstream media sources telling people how deadly this virus is and that if they see other people and do not stay home they could hurt or kill them… This fear being injected into children again and again…
This information is from the CDC below:
As someone who has experienced infertility myself, I KNOW the devasating effects to a woman’s mental health and as well a couple’s marriage and relationship. I would like to direct your attention to VAXX injuries that caused a “spontaneous abortion” (honestly not sure why its called abortion as the woman does not choose to miscarry… however):
|BLOOD PRESSURE INCREASED||1,214||1.41%|
|BODY TEMPERATURE INCREASED||1,635||1.90%|
To see this information for yourself (which I highly recommend) please go to the link below. I searched only based on the Covid-19 Vaxx and did not separate age, gender etc.

Now keeping in mind the numbers from Canada, based on the current “active” cases in Canada – 84,313 by how many cases Canada has had (which also does not mean illnesses either…) which is 1,194,989 this equates to 0.070%.
Why do I highlight this…
Because MORE people, women specifically because men cannot have a miscarriage, than those affected by covid currently are being injured by this “solution” that the government is trying to force on everyone.
Personal choice 100% – one that if you feel this is the only way you will feel safe that is YOUR CHOICE. Just like its mine to choose to not have it.
… and now Trudeau is hinting at a VAXX passport to be able to travel, which haha how many of us were called “conspiracy theorists” when we said this last year. Sadly… as I seriously feel like I am mourning my living family, the government continues to push and push more and more control.
I actually had a very nice conversation with a customer today, who told me about their travel back from Mexico this spring and how they flew into Buffalo to avoid the isolation centers at the airport and opted to take a shuttle into Canada. I was happy to hear this service is available as it allows people to go to their home, as they should. He did also let me know that last week the “covid police” stopped in to “check on them” during their quarantine… even after multiple negative tests. He told me he and his wife were booked to get their shots today and then asked me if I booked mine, I politely told him no we weren’t going to be getting it (speaking for myself, husband and kids). He politely asked why, so I simply explained we have never chosen or needed to get the flu vaxx and we have shifted our lifestyle for our health. It was a beautiful conversation with mutual respect on both sides. Absolutely no hard feelings, no you should do this or that, real honest respect which I truly was grateful for!
People shouldn’t be mourning their living family members… they should be LIVING — EXPERIENCING LIFE, HAVING FUN, LAUGHING, HUGGING, TOGETHER!!!
