Vivien Clere Green This blog is to inspire those who wish to have happy and healthy lives.

Phillip Day, campaigner for truth in medicine, is a man fearless about getting accurate and truthful information out to the public. He speaks openly and plainly on contentious issues enabling the general public to make wise health decisions. His courage and activities through Credence publications have helped countless millions of people regain their health and wellbeing.

Do you admire and respect people who talk the talk and walk the walk?

Well, Phillip Day and his wife, Sam, are two such people. When it came to bringing their baby into the world, they sought the truth. Sam did not want to treat childbirth as an illness and give birth in a clinical hospital environment. Even though she was technically in the "high risk" category (she had tipped the scales age-wise and it was her first baby), she did not doubt herself or the strength of her convictions.

As always when you follow your intuition, circumstances occur to help you. She was at a talk I gave on my book Wellness our Birthright, How to Give a Baby the Best Start in Life, when Phillip and I were speaking in Malta last year. Sam said this book gave her the information to support her own intuition, resulting in Anna being born as nature intended, at home without any intervention whatsoever. Consequently bonding with her baby was a given. Now Phillip is helping others to gain the truth in this area too and is promoting my book on his tours and in his forthcoming Australian tour.

Share this information with others so they too can have access to truths that enable people to be happier and healthier.

Vivien Clere Green This series of blogs is now an open forum for questions on pregnancy and early motherhood.

Do you have any questions about pregnancy and early motherhood that you would like me to answer? I am inviting you to send in any questions that you need answered.

It seems to me that there is so much information "out there" yet people are more confused than ever. So I am offering this to be a blog forum for anyone’s questions and I will answer them as they come up on the blog. This way others will benefit from your questions and it will help dispel some of the confusion.

It was for this reason that I wrote Wellness our Birthright How to Give a Baby the Best Start for Life but there are still more questions!

Let’s look at today’s question from Anna in Essex:

Q. Do I have to be concerned about the cleaning sprays I use at home? My baby’s breathing seems disturbed when I use air fresheners after changing her nappy? (Anna)

A. It’s interesting that you should raise this question, Anna, because recent medical research, from the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, quoted a study that said 15% of asthma cases were caused by cleaning sprays, air fresheners, furniture and glass cleaners. As mothers, we want to make our homes clean and pleasant to live in but we can, unknowingly, use harmful chemicals. So avoid using products like these and find safer alternatives.

Help your baby experience fresh, natural smells, rather than synthetic ones that can disturb the delicate nasal linings. Raise your own level of awareness too!

Today’s Tip: Allow fresh air to circulate in your home daily. If there are any unpleasant smells after changing the baby’s nappy, open a window for a few moments or use an essential oil burner.

Vivien Clere Green This series of blogs is about raising our awareness and understanding our programming.

Why do we need to use fresh food when we can buy it ready prepared?

These days, we all tend to live busy hectic lives and look for a quick solution when it comes to eating. We do not plan ahead and just grab something when hunger pangs arise. The food industry has made it even easier, with ready prepared food easily available in many different ways.

So why bother to use fresh food?

There are 3 key reasons:

1. Fresh food helps to prevent colds and infections, especially during the winter months.

2. Fresh food helps to prevent all forms of illness and disease.

3. Fresh food helps to increase vitality and energy levels.

Food is our fuel and putting in an inferior grade means that we function at a reduced level.

Is this what we want for our new born babies and young children? Do we really want them to suffer unnecessary ill health and grow up with poor levels of vitality?

No of course not! Yet unwittingly this is what we are giving our children when we don’t wean them on fresh food. Babies and young children are innocent beings, they eat whatever they are given. Thus begins their life time eating habits.

Help your baby experience the taste, texture and smell of fresh fruit and vegetables, both raw and cooked. Plan ahead and buy in some fruit and let it ripen for a day or two before you need it. Raise your level of awareness and wean your baby on fresh foods!

Today’s Tip: Cook fresh vegetables for your baby and freeze small amounts in an ice-cube tray. You can defrost this quickly when you are in a hurry.
