You save money buying healthy Thrive freeze dried foods. Not only will you minimize the impact of food inflation through food storage, eliminating waste and lowering your monthly grocery expenses (see “Cheaper than the Grocery Store”) but you’ll be giving yourself healthy food for your body. Because it offers GMO free, MSG free, aspartame free, rBGH and rbst (animal hormone) free foods, you can use the foods you eat to help build up your immune system or lessen your allergies. When shopping always use our Allergens Chart which identifies potential allergens or reactives that might be relevant to you (i.e., gluten, wheat, soy, etc.)

Thrive is Premium, Healthy Freeze Dried Food.

After battling multiple health issues (see “About Me”) and seeking GMO free (genetically modified organisms) foods for groceries and food storage, I came across Thrive as a solution to my food and nutrition needs. It helps protect and build my immune system and reduce allergies. There’s a growing body of medical research that GMOs, MSG, “hidden MSG”, and aspartame may be adversely affecting our health (see “Healthier than the Grocery Store”). GMOs have been linked to altering DNA, increasing allergies and adversing affecting our immune system. Studies of rats eating a GMO diet showed a variety of adverse effects on them, including, but not limited to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, infertility, organ failure, etc. MSG and aspartame have also been negatively linked to the same or similar adverse health effects (see Allergens & Reactives”).

Below is a diagram showing how the various pricing tools, methods and strategies make eating non-GMO affordable and practical.

WHY THRIVE FOODS?

WHY THRIVE FOODS?

 

 

I get asked this question many times about Thrive Foods!  The answer is simple:  Overall it is the best choice for quality and value!  It’s a win-win for the consumer!

These are just a few of the many good reasons to switch to Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) food products:

HEALTH

Our foods are healthier than the foods offered at the traditional grocery stores as they are not dominated with GMOs, MSG, and Aspartame, ingredients or processes which either have not been fully tested with long term studies by independent scientists.  At best GMOs, MSG and Aspartame are controversial and highly debated within the scientific community.  Are you or your family interested in being part of an ongoing experiment as many claim these growing methods and additives are?  See our page Healthier Than The Grocery Store for more information.

SAVE  MONEY

Food prices are skyrocketing, whether from companies changing their ingredients to cheaper ones, substituting ingredients, reducing the quantity, or just increasing the price.  Thrive Foods, because of their long term storage (many 25 or more years) and time to eat our foods once opened (usually 1 to 2 years) allows you to lock in lower prices as an offset to inflation, including potential upcoming hyperinflation.

Moreover, Thrive Life also offers you price stability that the grocery stores, whether those stressing whole foods or the traditional grocery store are unlikely to have.  The company adjusts it price schedule 4 times a year (for each season).  I’ve even seen our regular prices on food items go down.  Ask youself how often that happens at the grocery store these days?  To learn more about how we are cheaper, visit the page  Cheaper Than The Grocery Store.

KNOW WHAT’S IN YOUR FOOD

As you know millions of consumers want more information on their food labels to indicate whether a food product is genetically modified.  There was a knock-down fight of David and Goliath in California with the November 2012 referendum about whether we could get pro-consumer food labeling.  Unfortunately the last 40 days before the vote, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Syngenta, Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co and other minions heavily engaged in shoveling GMOs into your food supply (and believe with their corporate practices that you are NOT entitled to know whether GMOs are in your food) won Round 1 because they poured millions into their campaign.  (Ask yourself:  If GMOs are so good then why don’t they want you to know that one or more ingredients in a product is genetically modified?)

Consumers during these challenging times did not have the financial means to offset these multinational corporations.

So battle may have been lost but the war is far from over.  The “genie” is out of the bottle.  That “bloodbath” caused more consumers to learn about the GMO issues not just inside but outside of California.

Before this referendum Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) was already providing potential customers information on whether their food products contained GMOs.  In fact they voluntarily give customers more information than the law requires.  Learn why this is important by reading my page:  “Natural” or “All Natural” Misleading Labels.

CATERS TO THOSE WITH HEALTH ISSUES & FOOD ALLERGIES

When I was growing up it was rare to hear that anyone had a food allergy, and even rarer to hear that a child had a food allergy.  Now, there is a dramatic increase in the number of food allergies not just for adults but of children.  Learn more about this from my page Allergens and Reactives.

THE BEST ONLINE FOOD GROCERY STORE, PERIOD.

Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) is providing you with an ever expanding number of whole foods, sauces and seasonings.  It really is a high quality online grocery store.  Look at our offerings:  Freeze Dried Grocery Store.  Why battle the long lines, be exposed to the end counter high leader product placements, the time spent, and the gas you burn going between grocery stores.  Thrive Foods are a online shopping service that is a one stop shopping experience that will save you not only time, but money.

Time to Call Senators: Speak Out Against Monsanto Protection Act

Time to Call Senators:  Speak Out Against Monsanto Protection Act

The Monsanto Protection Act is in both houses of Congress.  Monsanto supporters put the provision as a rider on pending Appropriations legislation.  This rider, which could become legislation with a positive vote, puts Monsanto above the law.  The judicial system would lose its power to question or rule on their activities when they violate regulatory provisions or statutes in introducing new GMOs into the marketplace.

You and I have to obey traffic laws, criminal laws, civil laws, etc. or we face penalties, judgments or possibly incarceration.  Can you explain to me why a special sub-segment of an industry should not face what we face?  Is that fairness or justice?

Apparently the vote in the Senate for what’s been labeled the Monsanto Protection Act will happen on next Wednesday, March 27, 2013.  Please contact your two Senators and tell them you want them to support the Tester Amendment 74 regarding the Monsanto Rider.

If you think your phone call is a waste of time, you’re wrong!  In the early portion of my career I worked in two Congressmen’s offices.  Congressional staff members collect number of phone calls on pending legislation (support or against) and report them to their boss.

Here is a list of all U. S. Senators, their state and phone numbers:  U.S. Senator Phone Directory.  If you want to be effective, then only call the Senators from your state.  Even if you can get though to the staff of the other Senators, they probably will count your call in their talley.  –No Name Attorney

 

Action Alert:  We Have 1 Week Or Less to Stop Genetically Engineered Foods and Destruction of the Separation of Powers

Posted on March 20, 2013 by WashingtonsBlog

 Do We Have a Right to Know If Our Food Has Been Genetically Modified?Painting by Anthony Freda: www.AnthonyFreda.com.

Bill Would Strip Courts of Power … And Push Genetically Modified Foods Onto Our Plates

America has been decimated by the breakdown of the separation of powers between different branches of government. For example, the executive branch is negotiating laws in secret – and grabbing powers – without telling Congress.And life-and-death decisions about who the government labels an “enemy combatant” and assassinates are being kept away from the judges altogether.At the same time, government agencies like the FDA go to great lengths to cover up the potential health damage from genetically modified foods, and to keep the consumer in the dark about what they’re really eating.

Remember, genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases (brief, must-watch videos here and here).Things are about to get a lot worse within the next week … unless we stand up and say “NO!”Specifically, a law has been snuck into the Agriculture Appropriations bill – which will be approved by March 27th – which would destroy the separation of powers by stripping courts of the power to challenge genetically modified foods.How?The “Monsanto Rider” (section 735) uses “farmer-friendly” happy talk, but is an iron-fisted ploy to allow GMO crops to be planted even if a court has ruled that planting them is illegal.If the United States Department of Agriculture – which suffered “regulatory capture” by the big food companies decades ago – approves a genetically modified food without any testing, a court can enjoin (i.e. halt) production of that food until testing occurs.Yet the Monsanto Rider would strip the courts of power, and would allow GMO crops to be planted and put in our food … no matter what a judge has ruled.As the Weston Price Foundation notes:

If a GMO crop approval was shown to violate the law and require further analysis of its harmful impacts (as several courts have concluded in recent years, for example with GMO alfalfa and GMO sugar beets) this provision would override any court-mandated caution and allow continued planting and commercialization while further review takes place.Here’s a good summary of the bill.

Monsanto Protection Act and Your Food Costs

Monsanto Protection Act:  What Will This Do To Food Costs?

Let’s set aside for a moment you have no opinion (or even support) that  genetically modified or genetically engineered foods are a good or bad thing thing.  Let’s also assume that you think Monsanto is even a good corporate citizen or you have no opinion about them.

Monsanto and its colleagues are lobbying the US Senate for a special provision that will make them above the law and hard for the US government to do any regulatory supervision.

Is this wise to give a handful of corporations a choke-hold over our food supply, regardless of whether they are angelic, demonic or indifferent in their corporate conduct?

Giving favoritism or special laws in favor of a few is how monopolies happen.  And monopolies destroy true price finding.  Initially they might lower price to get a foothold on their sector.  They do this in part to squeeze out competition.  Once they think they have a centralized roll, the main players, then they use that to raise prices within that sector.

Let’s look at the current economic mess which in part was created by the Wall Street.  We saw (and are feeling) the harm when a few gets centralized power over an industry segment.  In the case of the financial fiasco caused by the Wall Street liar loans, derivatives mess, etc., now our U.S. Attorney General told a U.S. Senate Committee recently that they are too large to prosecute for their alleged crimes because of the harm that might do to our economy and the world’s economy.

What do you think will happen to the cost of the world’s food supply if Monsanto and minions have things so deregulated that they are their own government and above the law?

 

Monsanto, Dow Chemical and Syngenta now control 53 percent of the global commercial seed market.  Although Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, Bayer and Dow were under antitrust investigation into possible anti-competitive practices in the US seed market (soy, cotton and corn)  since 2010, last year the Obama administration just quietly dropped that investigation.  Do you think that helped out the family farmer?

Do you think that it is somewhat hypocritical that the opponents (Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow Chemical and cohorts) of California Prop 37 Food Referendum, who claimed (arguably falsely) that food labeling would substantially raise food prices during a time of economic troubles are now trying to do actions that will help them gain more of a market share and influence food prices?

So be aware of what is going on from just an economic aspect with our food supply. Monsanto and colleagues are not asking for this “special status” unless it means more of an economic advantage for them.  Just because they’re upset that a federal judge held them to the law (in the judge’s opinion) is no reason for them to be given royalty status or be placed above the law.  If they don’t like the judge’s ruling then appeal it.  That what citizens and other corporations have to do.  Whereas the little man or small business can’t afford an appeal, Monsanto and cohorts are far from being paupers.

Consider signing a petition to the US Senate which objects to Monsanto and cohorts getting special privileges that would allow them to have more power in the marketplace and place them above the law, not within the system.  Read Mr. Gucciardi’s excellent reporting on this topic below.–No Name Attorney

 

New ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ Gives Monsanto Power Over US Government

monsantoprotectionact 322x201 New Monsanto Protection Act Gives Monsanto Power Over US Government

Photo from www.NaturalSociety.com

There truly is no rest for the wicked, and Monsanto is at war once again against health conscious consumers with the latest ‘Monsanto Protection Act‘, managing to sneak wording into the latest Senate legislation that would give them blanket immunity from any USDA action regarding the potential dangers of their genetically modified creations while under review. The USDA would be unable to act against any and all new GMO crops that were suspected to be wreaking havoc on either human health or the environment.

It’s a legislative weapon that could be passed as early as next week if we don’t gather enough support to force our Senators to eliminate the section. It all started in the late hours of Monday night, when lobbyists working for the Monsanto-fronted biotechnology industry managed to slide a ‘rider’ (through the deceptively worded Farmer Assurance Provision, Sec. 735) into the Senate Continuing Resolution spending bill that is currently on the table of the Senate.

A massive petition to stop what has been labeled as the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ has been launched by Food Democracy Now, detailing what could come if the legislation is signed into law within the coming days or weeks:

If approved, the Monsanto Protection Act would force the USDA to allow continued planting of any GMO crop under court review, essentially giving backdoor approval for any new genetically engineered crops that could be potentially harmful to human health or the environment.

Monsanto Protection Act Trumps US Government

Federal courts would be powerless to regulate the sale and even cultivation of illegal and dangerous GMO crops, succumbing instead to the power of the biotech industry and Monsanto. The same threat we faced last summer during the initial emergence of this act. During that time, we saw major groups assemble against the act, from national farm institutions to food safety titans. The Center for Food Safety, the National Family Farm Coalition, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Sierra Club, and the Union of Concerned Scientists all came together to speak out against the incognito bombshell slipped into the 2012 Farm Bill and the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill.

Learn to Read Food Labels

Major food companies import food from China.  Did you know many of the mandarin oranges are grown in China?  Research and you will find many issues with Chinese agricultural practices and government practices that condone or attempt to hide the issues. Dole Mandarin Oranges come from China.  Does that motivate you to go purchase this product?

 

This past weekend I gave a talk (with Q & A’s from the audience–love those! :)) about how to read food labels.  (BTW if your group would like me to speak about this issue, food politics, etc. just send me an email to thrive@northstate.net and we’ll discuss it.)

Unfortunately still too many people do not understand the issues about genetically modified (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) foods, MSG, “hidden MSG”, aspartame or rbgh and rbst.

Just as important as those issues is the origin of the country where the foods are grown.  Let’s face it, some countries have better agricultural practices than others.  I know that I want to avoid as much as possible all imported foods from China or Southeast Asia.  Beyond their questionable agricultural practices, government corruption and history of contaminated food, I try my best to avoid buying products from China.  Our nation owes them too much money and some day we are going to get a much nastier boomerang than we are currently experiencing from this foreign trade imbalance.

I came across this article that has a basic explanation of the “organic” labeling program with some links for research.  I hope it conveys one reason why reading your food labels are important for your health and your purse!  –No Name Attorney

Organic Labels Come in Different Shapes and Sizes

Organic labels and their cousins abound. Here’s a look at some of the most  important labels consumers will see in grocery stores.

By Brian Clark Howard

Labeling may not seem like a particularly exciting topic, but it is extremely  important to those with nut allergies, diabetics and those busy people  everywhere who rely on labels to know what’s inside the foods they eat. Consider  the heated controversy over whether genetically engineered foods should be  explicitly labeled, or the ongoing fight over country-of-origin seals and how  that relates to recent scares over food imported from China.  When it comes to the much-touted word “organic,” there is much at stake. Not  only is the sector the fastest growing in the food industry, but also advocates  are positioning organics as a great hope in the battle to protect the  environment from the ravages of industrial agriculture and even oil-fueled  climate change. There are perhaps as many detailed definitions of “organic” as  there are farmers, chefs and consumers. But here are some of the most important  labels:

Political Cartoon Captures What We're Facing in 2013

Political Cartoon Captures What We’re Facing in 2013

With food inflation setting to soar in 2016, saving money on your grocery bill is important.  I’ve seen figures reported groceries used to make up 6% of our monthly budget.  As of 2013 Max Keiser, an economic journalist, reported in the U.S. groceries rose on average to 16% of a family’s monthly income.

Two ways that you can significantly lower your grocery bill while simultaneously eating better food than is offered at the traditional grocery store (i.e., non-gmo, no msg, no hidden msg, no aspartame), is using Thrive’s Unadvertised Specials and the Q Club.

Since unadvertised specials, which can save up to 45% off of the retail price, are NOT published on the Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) website, then to receive these you must have a relationship with a Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) Consultant.  The consultant sends these to you via email, newsletter and/or has them on their website password protected.  These are the distribution requirements by Thrive Life corporate office.

How Survive-Thrive.Us Distributes Unadvertised Specials to Potential Customers:

1.    We require all customers or potential customers to sign up for our Email Newsletter.  Each month around the 2nd to the 5th day, we send out our newsletter.

2.    Within the newsletter there will be a link to the current unadvertised specials.  All unadvertised specials are subject to being discontinued at any time.

3.    Since unadvertised specials fluctuate how often that they are updated and to keep down the number of emails sent, we also post on the website, password protected, a copy of the current unadvertised specials.  So before purchasing you should check on the website to see if it has been updated.

4.    The website copy is password protected.  All customers are given the password.  It is subject to being periodically changed for security reasons.  If a customer loses or forgets the password, then please email me at thrive@northstate.net and I will resend the current password.

5.      Your information is not shared or sold by me.  Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) likewise does not share or sell your information.

Who Can Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    Anyone who is not already signed up for the Q Club under a consultant.  (Exception:  Those who are a Q Club customer of a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team member are allowed to sign up to the newsletter.  Write me first at thrive@northstate.net giving me your name so I can verify whether your consultant is on the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.)

2.    If you have purchased from another consultant, but are not enrolled as a Q Club customer, and you feel that the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry better meets your needs, then you will receive the newsletter if you decide to become our customer.  This means that you:

a.    Notify the consultant that you want to be taken off of their email list, newsletter, etc.

b.    Agree that the Survive-Thrive.Us newsletter and other communications are proprietary and will not share them with a non-ministry consultant.  We go to great lengths to minimize any potential conflict of interest and mitigate any risks of inadvertent copyright violations for the benefit of everyone.

c.    Should you decide at some point that you wish to discontinue being a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry customer, then you notify us in writing to take you off all communication lists.  We will quickly comply with your wishes.

 When You Become Our Customer, Then You Give Us Permission:

1.    Send you our newsletter, special sales or important food news.

You will be added to our email database hosted currently by Constant Contact.

We are conservative in sending out emails and other communications.  We realize it is a privilege and respect the trust you have given.

2.    Add your name to our Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) customer database.  This will create your login ID and issue a temporary password so you can shop at your convenience.

3.    Enroll you automatically (as long as you are an active customer) in periodical contests and giveaways.

4.    Verify with Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) that you qualify to be a customer and eligible to receive our Email Newsletter, contests and giveaway prizes.

5.    Verify with Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) your consultant history so that if you have been associated with a Survive-Thrive ministry team consultant your account stays with them. 

Survive-Thrive.Us and its ministry team members have a team approach and work closely together on many projects.  We have an agreement we do not take customers from each other.  Therefore, when we are entering your customer information into the Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) database, if you are already in the database, then we will need to take steps not to break our agreement. 

Please note if you are associated with a ministry team consultant you are eligible to join this website’s newsletter.

 Who Is Not Eligible to Become a Customer or Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    A Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

2.    A family member of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

3.    An individual who resides in the household of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

4.    An individual who has a Q Club account with a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

If you have any questions about any of the above policies, then please send me an email at thrive@northstate.net.  If you are uncertain as to whether you are associated with another consultant, or whether you have a Q Club account, then write me.  I will research the matter and share with you the results.

Motivation, Mission and Vision

Motivation, Mission and Vision

What’s motivated me to start Survive-Thrive?  What’s the Mission and the Vision?

Motivation

When I connect the dots—my career experience, background and the medical challenges I’ve battled—I want to help others so they don’t have to have the same or similar health experiences.  Multiple life threatening situations these past few years got my full attention.

This journey though dark corridors of severe pain and suffering has a higher purpose that God can use for His glory.

Life has joy and sorrow.  No matter how tragic or painful the event, we don’t have to stay stuck in the negative.  We can embrace the challenge and gleam pearls from our trials and tribulations. 

The choice is ours:  Are you going to make lemonade from the lemons?

Each of us is made in the image of our Creator.  He does have a purpose (or many purposes) for each of us.  We have the responsibility to find that purpose.

When I considered everything that’s happened in the past few years, the many blessings I have and where I feel He is leading me, it resulted in this food, health and economic ministry.

Mission and Vision

  • Encourage wise food, health and economic stewardship.
  • Educate consumers how GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and  excitotoxins may be a cause or trigger of chronic health conditions and allergies.
  • Help consumers save money on their food household budget.

About New Page  “* NEWS TO KNOW *”

There’ so much fluidity with food, health and economic news.  We’re experiencing information overload.

Survive-Thrive’s “* News to Know*” is different in how it aggregates news.

When I share an article, I’ll sometimes add comments.  It could be an assessment or nothing more than asking questions as I would in the classroom teaching my MBA students.  It does not mean I agree with the author.  I may be only posting an article to show another perspective on an issue.

The objective is encouraging deeper analytical and critical thinking of shared news rather than accepting  what the original author writes. 

News stories are written by fallible humans.  Despite one’s best attempt to be even handed they are still writing from the lens of their world.    It’s unfair to authors to put the responsibility on them for our analysis of the news. 

If we are to have better health, be wiser stewards of our financial resources, etc., then we must get off the bench and get into the game.  Passing the buck is unacceptable.  In that process we are accountable.  Everyone’s involvement is valuable. 

Positive change will occur for our country when we at the ground level demonstrate positive change.  Our integrity must rise to the top and influence our leaders instead of vice versa.  If you don’t study the cause(s) then how are you going to find the solution(s)?  Are you just treating the symptoms or are you trying to cure the disease?

We must get engaged and be accountable.  Survive-Thrive promotes positive change by encouraging others to be actively involved.

Allergens & Reactives

Food Allergens & Reactives: 

Are They Disruptive To Our Immune System?

 

Too many Americans suffer from food allergies, whether from known or unknown issues.  Allergies are one of the ways our body lets us know that our immune system is NOT functioning as it should.

Independent of this,  over 80% of the food we buy in grocery stores contains one or more GMO (genetically modified organism) ingredients.  Many long term food storage companies likewise use GMOs.

How many long term food storage companies are willing to put in writing that they are selling you non-GMO or organic food?

Ask yourself:

Do you consider food  “gourmet” or “premium” if one or more of a meal’s ingredients came from seeds which are genetically modified by having different organisms inserted into the seed so it could be more resistant to a pesticide, such as Roundup? 

Do you think that foods grown from those seeds are exposed to more pesticides by all the spraying of the farm fields? 

Or what if those seeds were injected with a natural bug and worm killer, such as BT, to make corn crops more resistant to pests? 

Do you consider foods grown with such corporate farming techniques “gourmet” or “premium” if some of the ingredients could potentially affect our DNA or our immune system?

Thrive Life puts in writing which of its food items are GMO free and Gluten Free.   (Click here for Thrive Allergen Report)  They want their customers to get the healthiest food possible.  They identify potential allergens so you can make informed choices.  A part of that commitment publicly they made the commitment in 2014 that new products introduced would not have any GMOs, even those which are “processed” and not whole food items.

The concerns about methods used in corporate farming go beyond plants to meat and dairy products.  Corporate farming puts emphasis on fattening animals faster so they can take them to slaughter earlier.   In accelerating animal growth beyond Mother Nature’s time table, animals are injected with growth hormones.

Bovine growth hormones not only affect the meat but with cows you have to be concerned with the dairy products having elevated IGF in their milk.  Elevated IGFs in long term use may increase one’s risk to cancer. Milk from cows injected with the bovine growth hormone is a major factor in children experiencing earlier puberty.

Finally when buying any prepared long term storage meals you need to consider whether any neurotoxins or excitotoxins are in the ingredients.  Monosodium glutamate (MSG), a neurotoxin, has multiple names given to it by the food processing and manufacturing industry.  It is estimated that approximately 30% of the population may have chemical reactions to MSG. Neurotoxins and excitotoxins  attack your brain cells and nervous system.  They also weaken your immune system.  As your immune system weakens this can make your allergies worse.  Likewise, if you strengthen your immune system you decrease or resolve your allergy symptoms.

The goal is to avoid the allergens and reactives in our food supply.  Thrive foods simplifies one’s efforts to minimize their exposure to allergens and reactives and helps you “purify” your food supplies.
