The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional! We knew all along that Prop 8 was wrong, and this ruling affirms what millions of people all across the country already know — loving, committed same-sex couples and their families should be able to share in the celebration and obligations of marriage.
This is a huge victory in the battle for marriage equality, but this fight is far from over.
The federal government still refuses to recognize our families. The so-called Defense of Marriage Act remains the law of the land, and thousands of loving families are denied the protections, rights, and responsibilities that other married couples take for granted.
The Obama Administration has refused to defend DOMA. It’s time for Congress to repeal it.
Take Action now: Tell your senators to pass the Respect for Marriage Act and repeal DOMA.
Let’s use this historic ruling as a catalyst in our fight for equality, and demand that the federal government recognize our relationships.

If you weren’t getting what you needed from your massage therapist, hairdresser, or yoga instructor, you would find someone else, right? Why should your doctor be any different? And yet, your doctor is even more important. This is serious stuff we’re talking about here.
Plus, medicine is, after all, a spiritual practice. At least it should be, and if your doctor doesn’t believe that, do you really want to put your body and your life in his or her hands? If you didn’t like your priest, minister, guru, or shaman, you would go elsewhere, right? It’s your body. Your health. Your life. Your choice.
Ms. Rankin suggests you: Seek someone who shares your beliefs … Be willing to get what you pay for… Demand what you deserve … Listen to your intuition … Feel the love … Know that you deserve the best care possible.

My first clue as to the wonders of coconut oil came during my AIDS research in New York in the very early 1990’s. Anecdotal reports started to pop up throughout the AIDS community about miraculous cures using coconut oil. To my mind, that’s when the whole coconut oil industry opened up.
Before then, coconut oil was considered a “dangerous” saturated oil by the margarine promoters who set out to demonize butter. We know that ended in tears when it finally came out that the trans fats in margarine proved to be much more dangerous than any saturated fats.
Dr. Bruce Fife says that “Nearly one-third of the world’s population depends on coconut to some degree for their food and their economy. Wherever the coconut palm grows the people have learned of its importance as an effective medicine. For thousands of years coconut products have held a respected and valuable place in local folk medicine.”
Coconut oil differs from other oils because it’s rich in medium chain fatty acids that are utilized readily by the body for energy.
