How to make Homemade Natural Toothpaste.
I will present you a recipe for a natural toothpaste without fluoride in its composition. This homemade toothpaste will help you to whiten your teeth in a natural way. Recently, It was discovered that on long term, the fluoride have negative effect on human brain. Many firms that produce toothpaste, removed or diminished the quantity of fluoride from composition. Bio toothpaste is very expensive and not everybody can afford it. Create your own natural toothpaste, healthy and cheap. The toothpaste have 2 important roles. Is abrasive for cleaning the spots and the tartar. Also, have a lubricating role, that refreshes your breath and make the brushing process more pleasant.
Ingredients for natural toothpaste:
•2 spoons of water
•1 teaspoon of clay
•2 teaspoons of xylitol
•2 teaspoons of glycerin
•1 teaspoon of baking soda
•1 spoon of coconut oil
•5-7 drops of essential oil ( mint, lemon, orange, eucalyptus etc)
Put in a bowl the baking soda, water and glycerin. Heat them at low temperature. M.ix them until the water evaporate and turn off the fire. Add the coconut oil, xylitol, clay and essential oil. Mix well all the ingredients. Put the obtained mixture in a recipient.
All the used ingredients have a role. Baking soda is a great scrub. Removes the tartar from the teeth and whiten them. Personally, I wash my teeth once time per week with baking soda and it is really working. Xylitol protects the teeth against caries. Using the essential oil, you can give to your toothpaste the desired essence.
Do not forget that is a BIO toothpaste, perishable. Is it ideal to prepare small quantities (enough for 2 weeks) Keep the toothpaste at room temperature. Also, this toothpaste is suitable for pregnant women, who want to eliminate the daily ingested toxins. I suggest you to keep the toothpaste in glass vases, covered. You take the toothpaste from the recipient using toothbrush.
NASA Has Found a “Missing Day” on the Calendar, Explained Only by the Bible-Fiction!
An email says that NASA (The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has stumbled across some computer generated evidence that the Bible is true. A man named Harold Hill, a NASA consultant and president of the Curtis engine company, describes how NASA computers were looking back in time when they issued an alert that something was wrong. There seemed to be a day missing from the calculations. The scientists puzzled over this a long time until someone in their midst reflected that in the Bible, there’s a story about the day the sun stood still for the Hebrew leader Joshua. This solves the puzzle, almost. According to the computer, not an entire day was lost, but 23 hours and 20 minutes. Now there’s a new problem. What about the other 40 minutes? That’s when the same employee remembers that there is another story in the Bible about a day when the sun moved backwards 10 degrees which, according to the employee, is an arc of 40 minutes…so the entire question of the missing day is solved!
Except for the reference to the astronauts, this version of ‘the Missing Day’ story has been around for nearly 30 years. Harold Hill was a real person and he was the president of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore, Maryland.
He had converted to Christianity as an adult and became a popular speaker among Christian groups, because he was a successful businessman, claimed to be a consultant to NASA, and did presentations on science and the Bible. One of his most popular presentations was the story of the Missing Day.
Harold Hill apparently told the story without much notice until October 1969, when a columnist for a small American newspaper was told about one of his speeches and was given some notes about the Missing Day. She was so intrigued, that she wrote it up and it was published.
The columnist’s name was Mary Kathryn Bryan and her column appeared in the Spencer Evening World in Spencer, Indiana.
According to the newspaper, the results of that particular column were ‘simply unbelievable’. They started receiving requests from all over the world for reprints of the article, and finally stopped counting when the number of inquiries passed 1,500. The total number of cards, letters and telephone calls is now in the thousands.
From that article, the Missing Day story found its way into untold numbers of magazines, newspapers, gospel tracts, books and now emails. Harold Hill himself included it in a Christian book which he wrote. The story has several problems, however.
One problem is that apart from Harold Hill, there is no known source for the NASA story. For many years, whenever anyone wrote to him about it, he sent a form letter which said he had misplaced the source of the information, but would send everybody a copy when he found it. The source never materialized. In his subsequent book, Hill dismissed all skepticism about the story and said that no substantiation was needed. His attitude was that if people believed it and it drew them to spiritual things, it was justified.
Another problem is that NASA has denied that Harold Hill was ever one of its consultants. James S. Lacy, from the Office of Public Relations for NASA, wrote in a letter to a journalist that the only trace they could find of a Harold Hill having any connection with NASA was a person who was involved in contracting for the operations and maintenance of some diesel engine operations.
Further, according to a letter I have from the NASA Public Affairs office in Washington, ‘There is no truth to the recurring story that NASA uncovered a lost day in the movement of the Earth.’
It is interesting to note that an attempt to explain Joshua’s long day from a scientific standpoint was published many years before Harold Hill’s NASA story. In the 1930s, Dr Harry Rimmer wrote a book called ‘The Harmony of Science and Scripture’, in which he drew from an 1890 book by Yale professor C.A. Totten.
Using popular biblical chronologies of the time, Totten concluded that the world was created 4,000 years before the birth of Christ, on Sunday, September 22, 4000BC. However, he said that the calendar calculations showed that September 22 was actually a Monday, and not a Sunday, and that the error was probably because of Joshua’s missing day.
Totten also makes reference to the Hezekiah story in 2 Kings and argues that this accounts for another missing 20 minutes or so. Totten’s calculations sound suspiciously familiar to the NASA story. The bottom line seems to be that there is a lot still missing about ‘the Missing Day’.
NASA finds evidence that the Bible is TRUE!!!
For all you scientists out there and for all the students who have a hard time convincing these people regarding the truth of the Bible…here’s something that shows God’s awesome creation and shows that He is still in control.
Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called “myth” in the Bible is true?
Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore Maryland and a consultant in the space program, relates the following development:
” I think one of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland. They were checking the position of the sun, moon, and planets out in space where they would be 100 years and 1000 years from now. We have to know this so we won’t send up a satellite and have it bump into something later on its orbits. We have to lie out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite, and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down.
They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong either with the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards. They called in the service department to check it out and they said, “What’s wrong?”
Well, they found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time.
They scratched their heads and tore their hair.
There was no answer.
Finally, a Christian man on the team said, “You know, one time I was in Sunday school and they talked about the sun standing still.”
While they didn’t believe him, they didn’t have an answer either, so they said, “Show us.” He got a Bible and went back to the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for any one with “common sense.”
There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, “Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.” Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy and if darkness fell, they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That’s right – “The sun stood still and the moon stayed—and hasted not to go down about a whole day!”
The astronauts and scientists said, “There is the missing day!”
They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close but not close enough.
The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua’s day was 23 hours and 20 minutes–not a whole day. They read the Bible and there it was “about (approximately) a day.”
These little words in the Bible are important, but they were still in trouble because if you cannot account for 40 minutes you’ll still be in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.
As the Christian employee thought about it, he remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went BACKWARDS. The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book and read these words in 2 Kings. Hezekiah, on his death-bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said, “Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees?” Hezekiah said, “It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees.”
Isaiah spoke to the Lord and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD!
Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes!
Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings make the missing day in the universe! Isn’t it amazing?
‘Protect Our Children’ Project Prevents Trafficking of Three Brothers in Senegal.
A religious leader in a remote village in Kolda recruited three young brothers, only 7 and 8 years old, to go to urban Saint-Louis seemingly to learn the Quran. Many families in Senegal send their children to religious boarding schools, or daaras, in Saint-Louis, a dense city hundreds of miles away near the mouth of the Senegal River. Yet many hopeful religious students, or talibés, are forced instead into begging slavery. Rapid urbanization and crushing poverty have created a sad situation for child traffickers to exploit. Local religious leaders are often unwitting accomplices, recuriting children under the of holy instruction, but instead sending them to street begging gangs.
But this story has a happy ending. Our front-line partner ENDA (Environment Development Action in the Third World) educates local communities on the risks and realities of children falling into begging slavery. The very day these brothers were scheduled to go to Saint-Louis coincided with an ENDA visit to their village. The team shared information about the “Protect Our Children”—Aar Sunu Xaleyi—project. The initiativeincrease community resistance to child slavery through awareness-raising and preventive and protective actions.
Slaves in Plain Sight.
Modern slavery is often hidden—poverty and ignorance make forced labor bondage a secreted crime and an invisible tradegy. But on the crowded streets of Saint-Louis, child slaves are everywhere. Traffickers force talibés and children as young as 5 years old into treacherous urban areas to plead for food, money, and other necessities. As helpless beggars, they face physical and sexual abuse, exposure to illegal drugs, car accidents, and drowning, among many other dangers and forms of exploitation. Many children simply run away—lost to the streets, alone and defenseless.
Even in the daaras, talibés may face unsanitary, unsafe, and crowded conditions, frequent and severe corporal punishment, sexual abuse, and the trauma of family rupture. Many enter adulthood deprived of education and utterly unprepared for employment.
Innovative Approach Saves Brothers, Supports Freedom.
Aar Sunu Xaleyi traces trafficked children back to their community of origin. This innovative method proved crucial in protecting the three brothers from enslavement. The ENDA team shared real-life data and examples with the marabout who had organized their travel about the number of children from their specific community who had traveled to different daraas in Saint-Louis—only to find themselves trapped in dangerous living conditions
The marabout had a change of heart. He felt compelled to return the brothers to their village. The ENDA team also convinced the father of the three boys not to send them to Saint-Louis—he finally agreed to keep them with him in Kolda.
After further mediation and sensitization efforts, the marabout offered to join forces with local leaders to keep children close to home for religious instruction. By raising awareness on forced child begging, many children now stay with their families in Kolda and safely learn the Quran in local daaras.
The rescue of the three brothers shows villagers are receptive to our anti-trafficking message. Today the religious leader who once inadvertentlay abetted the trafficking of children into begging slavery welcomes and supports the “Protect the Children” project in his village. When communities are given the chance to unite and resist slavery, they do.
