Natural Moms Podcast #81

May 1, 2008

My guest this week is Aurore Adamkiewicz, ND. She is a nursing student turned naturopath.

Interestingly she found some of the same idiocies in traditional medicine in alternative medicine, such as hysteria.

She favors more balance, less scaring in her approach to wellness, which includes color therapy.

One of her concerns with the widespread use of CFLs is who is promoting them – the same people who are pushing nuclear energy. As many people know, CFLs are difficult to dispose of properly. Few people are going to go to the proper lengths to deal with them safely.

In Aurore’s work with color therapy, she notes that incandescent bulbs are closer to the natural spectrum. Some research shows that kids with ADD symptoms get better away from fluorescent lights.CFLs - compact fluorescents

The next best thing to incandescent when it comes to the quality of light is LED. LEDs last longer than incandescents and are smaller bulbs. They are closer to the natural light spectrum. Gaiam is one source of LEDs. Bio-Enviro is another.

Researchers who were uncovering the truth about CFLs were really excited about it and they knew about the dangers of CFL, but when push came to shove they wouldn’t publish it. Aurore believes that the CFL’s are involved with a mass money making scheme-much like vaccines.

    You know when my husband first brought the CFL lights home, I was excited. And then I received email from Dr. Mercola on them and I started doing some research. They can cause headaches and migraines…not good. And the mercury thing really made me uncomfortable…I knew about that before he purchased them.

    It got me to thinking….Why in the heck would they sell something that is supposed to save on energy and can eventually cause harm, even death. HMMMM!!!!

    What an important information. I have never liked the environment created by CFLs because I feel like tired and can’t see well.
    Anyway, I was thinking on taking the supermarket offer to take old incandescents to get a discount on CFLs…
    I’m glad we don’t have CFLs at home at all

    ah, forgot to mention that here in Ecuador we don’t have options to properly dispose most things, not to mention CFLs

    ah, forgot to mention that in most parts of Ecuador we don’t have options to *properly* dispose regular garbage, not to mention CFLs. Everything goes mixed to the landfills :(

    Well this is kind of pointless now, unless people can somehow turn over the new regulations…I am mad as heck, but it got passed and I happened to find out too little too late. We have no choice after 2012…. here’s the “nice” explanation for it… and basically here’s a more “real” version of what it means…. The day after I heard it passed, the commercials started with local hardware stores saying that you could dispose of the bulbs at their stores for free…you know most people are not going to throw away the bulbs properly, and I’ve also heard that penalities will be imposed. Course that is just hearsay so far.

Got something to say?
