SEE YOURSELF UP CLOSE! Toxic Plants for Pets


Making EMF Busters for Your Home and Protection this July
In the last newsletter I wrote about rebalancing discordant earth energies – geopathic stress faults, underground water ways, etc (again at the very bottom of this email) and how to simply and cheaply remedy these nasty unwanted energy sponges).

Then, while trying to write and rewrite about the ways to manage the unwanted man-made EMF discordant invisible energies – such a vast range of types and damages – I thought it would be so-ooooo much easier to just have a small seminar/workshop were we all get together and make the EMF busters on the spot. Much easier than what I was trying to describe. I’ll purchase most of the ingredients and we’ll wait for hot  weather, as we need to do this outside as it includes using epoxy.
We’ll make them, and while we wait for them to harden we can have some champagne and brunch (a bit like kindergarten activities!)
A good date for now, weather being the only wobbly variable, is Sunday, July 8th.
So, for now, we’ll say 11am to 3pm. At my place – in Kerrisdale, Vancouver.

Toxic Spring Plants for Pets:
It's spring here and lovely plants are popping out of the ground in such splendor and never would you think that they cud be harmful... There are over 700 common plants that can be poisonous to cats and dogs if ingested! I always will remember how sick my poor little Walter became after some one brought me a poinsettia one Xmas. The normal signs of poisoning are: symptoms that include mouth irritation, drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, hallucinations, seizures, coma and skin rash (if you can peek under the fur...). And for the upcoming holiday we have Easter Lilies which are so very toxic to cats.
The top 10 most poisonous plants for cats and dogs follow here below:

Autumn Crocus
There are two Crocus plants: one that blooms in the spring (Crocus species) and the other in the autumn Colchicum autumnale). The spring plants are more common and are part of the Iridaceae family. These ingestions can cause general gastrointestinal upset including vomiting and diarrhea. These should not be mistaken for Autumn Crocus, part of the Liliaceae family, which contain colchicine. The Autumn Crocus is highly toxic and can cause severe vomiting, gastrointestinal bleeding, liver and kidney damage, and respiratory failure. If you’re not sure what plant it is, bring your pet to their veterinarian immediately for care. Signs may be seen immediately but can be delayed for days.

In the same family as rhododendrons, azaleas can have serious effects on pets. Eating even a few leaves can result in vomiting, diarrhea and excessive drooling.

The roots of this seasonal flowering plant are especially dangerous to pets. If ingested, cyclamen can cause severe vomiting and even death.

This popular flowering succulent plant can cause vomiting, diarrhea and heart arrhythmias if ingested by pets.

There are dangerous and benign lilies out there, and it’s important to know the difference. Peace, Peruvian, and Calla lilies contain oxalate crystals that cause minor signs, such as tissue irritation to the mouth, tongue, pharynx, and esophagus – this results in minor drooling. The more dangerous, potentially fatal lilies are true lilies, and these include Tiger, Day, Asiatic, Easter and Japanese Show lilies – all of which are  highly toxic to cats!

Oleander is an outdoor shrub, popular for its evergreen qualities and delicate flowers. However, the leaves and flowers are extremely toxic if ingested and can cause severe vomiting, slow the heart rate.

Popular in many homes and offices, dieffenbachia can cause intense oral irritation, drooling, nausea, vomiting and difficulty swallowing if ingested.

These flowers contain lycorine, an alkaloid with strong emetic properties (something that triggers vomiting). Ingestion of the bulb, plant or flower can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and even possible cardiac arrhythmias or respiratory depression.

Lily of the Valley
The Convallaria majalis plant contains cardiac glycosides which will cause symptoms similar to digitalis (foxglove) ingestion. These symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, a drop in heart rate, severe cardiac arrhythmias and possibly seizures.

Sago Palm
This household and outdoor plant can be very harmful to pets. If ingested, the leaves and seeds can cause vomiting, bloody stools, damage to the stomach lining, and liver failure.

Tulips and Hyacinths
Tulips contain allergenic lactones while hyacinths contain similar alkaloids. The toxic principle of these plants is very concentrated in the bulbs (versus the leaf or flower), so make sure your dog isn’t digging up the bulbs in the garden. When the plant parts or bulbs are chewed or ingested, it can result in tissue irritation to the mouth and esophagus. Typical signs include profuse drooling, vomiting, or even diarrhea, depending on the amount consumed.

Some Simple, Effective, Elegant, Band-aid Remedies for Geopathic Stress Faults.
We hear a lot about excessive unhealthy EMF's, geopathic stresses, radiation, etc. These terms are often interchanged in articles and conversations  regarding the unseen deleterious forces in our environment: "radiation" from smart meters, cell phones, microwave towers, one's neighbor's satellite dish, even our kitchen appliances, etc, as well as solar flares, the shifting magnetic North, geopathic stress faults, underground water pathways and disrupted energy lines from grids such as the Hartman grid. Head spinning yet?

Well, amongst all of these stresses that we are all subjected to, the ones emanating from the earth can be dealt with easily! And even in a  simple effective manner costing ZIP! You can get a very savvy, experienced dowser to find locations, width and severity of the earth stressors OR just proceed "as if" there is a worst case scenario. Just apply some simple yet effective remedies.

Remember the old stately homes and large farm houses of the past? The  buildings' corners were often built of serious large solid field stones, giving a very anchoring feeling but doing much more. These stones have a very high silica content. Silica deflects geopathic stresses emanating from the earth, causing these to flow around the home rather than through. The stones had a very specific physical purpose that seems to now have been lost. Marble contains silica, too. No need to go out and reconstruct the corners of your home or renovate your floors with marble, though.

Merely put a nice clean juicy rock in all four corners of your home - apartment or house (not too small – no pebbles). And then to be extra sure, buy some stone or marble floor tiles for under your bed – this is the one place you expect to spend quality repair time. So six square foot tiles, spread out under a double bed will do nicely (tiles made of poured limestone don't qualify for this – no silica) as protection, deflecting any geopathic stresses from stress-faults and underground water streams and flows and broken Hartman grid lines.

With the tiles in place under your bed and the rocks in the corners also providing overall protection, there is bound to be better and healing sleep. Rocks / marble / stone. That's it.

Total cost of this protection is $0 to $12!

Isn’t nature GREAT!
