    Wink Discovery Channel or Nature, health , wellness...Anyone??

    I love nature. I am to a certain extent into a bit of wild life. I... mostly love earth and nature, because I'm health oriented.

    anyone one into health and wellness.
    animals, earth, hiking, canoeing...? Please feel free to leave a variety of interesting comments.


    I will start I LOVE HEALTH and wellness. I notice that North American society are very health conscious now a days. Do you guys think the health food and drug stores are doing better than fast food chain now a days or is it the opposite and why?

    I do enjoy watching the discovery channel every once in a while. LOL i never realized how similar animal and human society are.

    I have Discovery Channel, I do watching some programs like “Alaskan Bush People”, “Highway Thru Hell”, “Battle Bots” and even “North Woods Law”. I wish I can watch Animal Planet and I do watch some nature programs every now and then on TVO. “North Woods Law” is really interesting, I was fascinated by the game warden services very similar to when I watched “LivePD” on A&E.

    I did say i like wellness. So, right now I'm into using natural health products for my hair care regime. I use "Essential Oils" and other similar products like almond oil, coconut, peppermint ect. I use these in my hair and they work wonders! They make my hair soft and shiny. I even checked these out on youtube. Oh my , so many people are using these oils and recommending their benefits!

    Oh, that sounds like a good show. I like that kind of thing as well, "Myths". What kind of myths do they solve, is it having to do with ufo's, legends in history, cold case crimes ect?

    I got so curious sometime last year about olive oil that I found out you can put a teaspoon of it on cereals, I tried on my Cheerios and man olive oil really are an awesome flavour enhancers. They're also great with your skin too.

    Really eh? You know something, you're right that olive oil is wonderful, but for some reason, me and olive oil don't jive all that well. If i put small amounts of it mixed with something else on my skin or hair, i'm fine, it works wonders on me. Or say like, if i eat it (as you suggested) i get health benefits from that as well, but if i try and use large portions of it on my skin or hair...aahhh!!! It ruins my hair and does nothing for my skin!

    Anyways, i guess that's how it is huh? Different strokes for different folks. But i love coconut.

    Well you don't have to use olive oil, you can use whatever you want for your skin and hair. One time my fingers got stuck together because the adhesive from the fly trap and couldn't wash it off and I tried coconut oil that my mom suggested it neutralizes the adhesive.

    Remember people always suggested using tomato juice and tomato paste to neutralize skunk smell? Well 20 years ago we had 2 golden retrievers that killed the skunk and got stinky from it and bathed in tomato juice and after bathing in it, they still stink and takes a long time. Until I watched "Billy The Exterminator" on A&E, Billy stated that using liquid soap, baking soda and peroxide are the best solution to neutralize the skunk smell. I remembered those ingredients well if a pet or even myself got stink by a skunk.

    Hey, that's really useful information POP, thanks... Yeah, if a person is into nature, trails, walks and so forth this is the kind of thing to know. Cuz for instance let's just say i happen to be walking in a nature trail or trek ( i have actually been on those by the way) you can end up running into something, like a skunk or a fox and you'd have to know just what to do. Or...poison ivy yikes!

    thanks.

    Yeah, so i did go on a nature trail quite a few times actually. I must say i rather enjoy each and every time i go on these treks because it's relaxing and yet stimulating at the same time. It's so adventurous and story book like (to me). The people I'm with, we all each pick our own huge stick from the forest and employ that as our support, as we climb hill after hill. It's good exercise on the muscles. I like that it promotes packing your own healthy snack and lunch so that we can stop , sit in a nice spot and have our meal.

    There are so many beautiful sites surrounding me during my trek. There are rocks, trees of various shapes and sizes, soil and shrubs, bushes growing wild all round, vines, plants, little animals everywhere and maybe even a small river here or there. We help each other hop and skip over certain obstacles, lol it's fun!
