http://earthempress.com/ Shakaya Leone inspires women to feel empowered in their Health and Beauty. Naturally. 'When we lose touch with Nature, we lose touch with our own nature. I help women take care of their exquisite body-temples and flower-faces by honouring Nature’s wisdom. And food in its natural state is a sacred gateway to reclaim ourselves. Tell me how you eat and I can tell you where you are sabotaging or cultivating your power as a woman.’

Shakaya attributes her boundless creative energy to her Nature-Inspired lifestyle.

http://www.drumsonfarms.org/ Drums on Farms is a local charity/NGO in East Timor that reduces hunger in rural areas by giving farmers access to good methods for food storage. Currently we distribute second hand 44 gallon drums, that are perfect for corn storage on Timorese farms. Every drum that a farmer is able to purchase will save 60kg more corn that can be eaten by that family. This is enough food to keep the family eating corn for 20 extra days. Getting 200 litre (44 gallon) drums onto farms is what we do that gives people more food. You can help out. See the donation page.



http://www.savingthewholewoman.com/ Christine Kent is a nurse who experienced uterine prolapse after surgery for urinary incontinence. She refused further surgery in spite of that being the only option anyone had for her, and instead dove into the medical literature on the female anatomy of the pelvic region. She discovered that this anatomy and how our organs are kept stable and in position has been totally misunderstood by medicine and that the advice given to women to pull in the tailbone and suck in the stomach is contrary to the design of the pelvic organ support system. She teaches women how to correct their posture to be natural, and feminine, rather than straight, and rigid, to correct symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse, along with exercises that help reposition the organs properly. She also explains why kegels don't work to accomplish this.
