Natural Cure For Altitude Sickness | Chloroxygen


High Altitude Sickness Natural Remedy and Energy Booster

I first discovered this product while visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico for the first time.  Coming from sea level in Florida to 7000 feet in the mountains didn’t seem like a big deal immediately.  Arriving in the AM and hitting the ground running, it didn’t hit me or my friend until the afternoon.  Shortness of breath, headache, nausea and the feeling she was going to pass out was my friend’s reaction.  I was mainly just a little winded and had a mild headache. We were both feeling the effects of high altitude sickness due to less oxygen in the air than we were accustomed to.

Long story short, we were introduced to Chloroxygen at a local health food store and it was a life saver becoming an instant new favorite in my supplemental arsenal.   An added benefit that has me using the stuff daily even in Florida is the energy boost it gives me. It’s a great alternative to energy drinks if you’re like me and don’t care for them. Unlike coffee or other caffeinated beverages, the chloroxygen gives me a nice consistent boost in energy level and alertness.

You should be able to find Chloroxygen at your local health food store, but I have found to be a better deal all around. WHY

  • offers better prices than the health food stores
  • No sales tax
  • Free Shipping on orders of $40 or more
  • carries a huge assortment of health products (so it isn’t hard to find plenty to buy and stock up on.)

**Save $5.00 on your order at use code IHE882**

If you are planning on a trip to the mountains for snow boarding, hiking or skiing or simple traveling to a high elevation from a low one – like Florida – and you want to acclimate instantly to the higher elevation, Chloroxygen is the ticket.  For  me, I would use the old Amex phrase, “Don’t leave home without it.” Even if I’m not going to the mountains, bringing a bottle of chloroxygen with me to give me energy when traveling is a must.

Chloroxygen offers 3 ways to take it: it comes in liquid drop form both regular and mint as well as capsules.  It is alcohol and preservative free and doesn’t require refrigeration. More pluses in my book!

Even more PLUSES:

Chloroxygen is USA grown and manufactured by Herbs Etc.  It is organic, GMO-free, pesticide-free and BSE safe.

Consider this: over 60% of the dietary supplement ingredients currently come from China. Herbs Etc. is American, family run organic business.

Made from stinging nettle leaves, just 36 drops in 8 to 16 oz of water or liquid gives you 100mg of chlorophyll.

The one ounce bottle has about 66 servings at 18 drops per serving. The bottle is about $10 bucks @ and with the coupon code IHE882, you save another $5.00. Store prices run around 12-15 dollars by comparison.

Some other insights I can share with Chloroxygen are:

  • The taste is like fresh sweet grass. Compared to a shot of wheat grass, this stuff is extremely mild by comparison
  • If you add it to water, it looks really cool – a transparent deep green color.
  • It can get things moving if you are suffering from constipation.
  • Your poop will tend to appear darker and even green, especially when you first start taking it.
  • My cats seem to like their drinking water with a few drops put in their water (like 5 or 6, not too many). Being house cats I figure it’s a good way for them to get their greens safely and it’s easier and cheaper than kitty grass.

How To Grow Fresh Air Indoors

I became involved in a company over 10 years ago that was a pioneer in the education of the dangers of indoor air pollution.  Back then people laughed and were incredulous at some of the things we were teaching. Others got it and wanted to do something about it.  The technology wasn’t perfect, but people saw and felt the difference. I myself overcame allergies that had been chronic up until then.

Now, going back to nature – as we seem to do in cycles – this video explains how 3 common houseplants can create all the fresh air we need.  I believe that there is still a place for the air purifiers as they can eliminate viruses and bacteria and airborne allergens and dust.

Green Green Green | Funny Video With A Great Message

Green Green Green

A friend of mine has a really cool company called EcoBold.  She has a popular YoutTube channel and website that encourages and educates people about the importance of going green and buying from companies that are not destroying the planet in the process.

Recently, she posted this hilarious video that shows off just how funny she is and how you can have fun and be entertaining while touting the virtues of living a healthy lifestyle.

F-N-F | Friday Night Film  September 17, 2010

Art House Style Humor by Ryan McGinley and Model Carolyn Murphy (face of Estee Lauder since 2002)

Entrance Romance (it felt like a kiss)

Usually these sorts of films are too obscure or self important and snobbishly arrogant but lacking in true value, in my opinion and come across more like an inside joke for those in the self proclaimed and self appointed ‘in crowd’ who try to act superior over the rest of us but are actually some of the most insecure and self doubting people around…

This short film was just plain silly. It made me laugh.

IF you can’t see the film (it’s Flash based embedded), here’s a link

Vibram Five Fingers Shoes

Ok, so as of this posting, I haven’t actually acquired a pair of these quirky new shoes yet, but I have a feeling I’m going to like them.

5 fingertoes Keep Sh** Out (KSO) shoes.

I’ve been meaning to get a pair of these when I heard about them recently.

I’ve experimented with different running styles too…like that of the Tarahumara Indians … barefoot to boot.

Many times I’ve had to run barefoot through a flooded parking lot thanks to sudden torrential downpours we get in Florida and I don’t want to ruin my leather Reef sandals.

However, I’m told that unlike the Tarahumara style of running, where you run with just the soles of your feet and not the heels, the Five Finger shoes require a gate more like chi-walking or chi-running where you don’t do the typical heel-toe gate, but rather come down flat on the whole foot.

  • Have good posture
  • Lean forward slightly with your feet aligned behind you and never going in front of you (that’s when you hit the ground and create an opposite force)
  • Increase the cadence of your strides so that your legs touch the ground more often and therefore decrease the impact of gravity (chi-running trains you to run between 85 to 90 strides per minute which is much higher than we normally do, it feels really weird but actually takes less effort)
  • Touch the ground with your entire foot instead of “heel-toes” you can experiment this technique on a beach, your steps should not create craters in the sand but show a flat step which happens only if the forces are distributed on all its surface.

Hmm… I’ve been chi walking on beaches for years without realizing it!

Sure, these shoes look like part of an Incredible Hulk costume foot accessory or something – especially if you find a green pair and add some hair to the top, LOL.

I wonder what the Parkour  [PK} crowd thinks of these??

They’re definitely not as ugly as Crocs imo. . . and look how popular Crocs became.

Some fellow fans and wearers of these shoes include Tim Ferris of 4 Hour Work Week and Sergie Brin of Google.

Here’s a top view of a Five Finger shoe in funky blue:

Best Designed Products for 2010

Just got my new subscription to Fast Company – a great magazine for the entrepreneurial and curious.

I remember when i first got a neighbor’s issue by accident back in 99 in california.

I think i actually saved it for a while somewhere [hey, no pac-rat comments now].

Anyway, this is a fun way to spend an hour or two looking over the International Designers Society of America’s top 150 picks for 2010.

TFT – Terry’s Favorite Things

So many of these are coming out of California – especially the bay area…

Does that surprise anyone?  A place where Art and Tech come together.

There were so many favorites for me, including the JAMHUB for musicians.

Note – if you go to the company’s site, you won’t find it yet, but there is an inflatable guitar that is really cool.


Yet another skateboard like device that reminds me of a TRON light cycle made by Brooklyn Workshop called the FREE RIDER.

$150 gets you your own ride.


Great wine glasses that everybody can afford – and you don’t have to worry about breaking these. GOVINO Go Anywhere glasses.

The thumb notch is a nice design touch.  And hey, these are only $3.00 a glass.


This one by Hyundai Engineering is dear to my passion for vertical farming – this time on a micro scale – for the condo or apartment dweller!

The Kitcken Nano Garden.



Other notables – the Laundry POD by RKS – when you just need to wash a few little things.


A LED light bulb by Panasonic that might simulate the same coverage as our old favorite, the incandescent?

Although I think Process Taiwan has a better design with their T-Tech LED Dimmable Light Bulb.


If you like motorcycles and going green, there is hope down the road with Mission Motors Mission One Sportbike.

150 mph and 150 miles per charge.


Like to kitesurf in the arctic circle?  Keep dry, warm and stylish with this outfit.


Perfect your push up with the Perfect PushUp V2.


Here’s the first folding bike design that in my opinion is actually a gOOd One. The Ville folding bike


The Write? Light! idea is a perfect solution to people like me who start having ideas pop into our heads

just when we are ready to go to sleep and the lights are off.

Combining a pen and a light in one in a new aesthetically pleasing design.


Here’s an interesting solution to the toilet situation… You know, the one where some guys can’t seem to

contain their #1?  2in1 Toilet concept


Being a fan of Parkour, here’s a shoe that’s supposed to be better than what PKers usually use.


Although I have read that many PK enthusiasts aren’t all that impressed with the current offerings for

specialty shoes and besides, true PK would ideally be done in bare feet. OUCH!


Finally, the Zen Wagon by KaiKu will give the Red Radio Flyer wagon a run for it’s money.


Transcendental Meditation | Could TM Be Making a Comeback?

Everybody’s doing it… Beatles Paul and Ringo (George and John when they were alive), Russell Simmons, Howard Stern, Mike Love of beach boys, Donovan, David Lynch, Moby, Clint Eastwood, Mary Tyler Moore, (Merv Griffin was a HUGE proponent back in the 70s).

Some others that I was unable to verify for certainty include Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Oprah Winfrey, Bono, Sheryl Crow.

I doubt that TM will become ‘MAINSTREAM’ any time soon,  where a large majority of the population is doing it, but  the beauty is it doesn’t have to be practiced by everyone in order to have extremely positive effects on society and the planet.

Enormous amounts of scientific studies have shown again and again the proof of the effectiveness TM has in every aspect of life.  As Maharishi explained, the nature of life is to want more and more and greater and greater happiness.

David Lynch formed his foundation with the goal to teach TM in the schools.

They’ve already incorporated this in many inner city troubled schools with remarkable success in turning things around for the good.

Are Pests A Problem In Your Home?

Got Bugs?

You don’t want to poison your space with a can of Raid, so what DO you use?

There’s way too many toxins in our lives and the desire to be more and more natural and safe is growing in intensity.  I’m passing along some of this info I read in a magazine recently that offers some safe ways to get rid of some pesky bugs in our homes.

All-natural repellent, Repellex Bug-A-Tak, contains mint, clove leaf and rosemary essential oils that deter and kill beetles, mites, whiteflies and others.

Instead of using moth balls – which can ruin the thing you are protecting for decades – just ask me about my briefcase full of my original music compositions that was stored near moth balls in the 90s.*  Sachets filled with lavender, cedar chips and citronella can keep moths from chewing up your prized wool sweater.

Keep food items in airtight containers once they’re opened.

Mice. They won’t come around much if they smell dog or cat. If you don’t have one, why not rescue and adopt one or two from your local shelter?

DIY Repellents:

Ants – hate citrus. Mix 1/4 cup citrus solvent like Citra Solv with 2 cups water, spray mixture in ant-traffic areas.

Fruit Flies – hate basil. Keep a basil plant in the kitchen near your fruit.

Roaches – tea tree oil, garlic, peppermint, bay leaves, and hot peppers are all on their shit list. Pick one of these oils or herbs and mix 2 tsp oil or fresh crushed herbs (2 Tbsp if dry ground herbs) into 2 cups water and spray around the infested areas.

Fleas – Limonene and linalool in citrus peel extract kil all stages of a flea’s life cycle. Cut 4 lemons and simmer for 1 hour in a quart of water, adding water as needed, cool, strain and massage mixture into your dog’s coat. Cats’ don’t much care for this treatment.

*I was told by a friend that vodka in a spray bottle is a good remedy for ridding moth ball smells from clothes – I’ll have to try it on my sheet music and see if it works on that too.  Since I’m on the subject of ridding things of smells, a musty basement can be fixed with 1/2 an onion on a plate left overnight.

I wonder if there could be  sound frequency vibrations that might offer another pest deterrent that wouldn’t be harmful to plants, pets and people…

update 10/27/10

Here’s some info I found on a Natural Mosquito Repellent recipe in case you don’t like putting DEET on your skin.

Thanks to for this.

Herbal Insect Repellent

2 1/2 teaspoons total of any combination of the following essential oils: basil, cedarwood, citronella, juniper, lemon, myrrh, palmarosa, pine, rose geranium and/or rosemary (available at health food stores)

1 cup 190-proof grain alcohol (available in liquor stores) [my input – a good vodka would probably work too]

Place ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake vigorously. Transfer to small bottles for storage. To use, rub a small amount on any exposed skin (test first to be sure your skin will not be adversely affected by the repellent) or dab it on clothing.

Experiment a little to find which essential oils work best with your body chemistry. If you’re lucky, you also will like the way they smell; otherwise, add a few drops of peppermint oil to fine-tune the fragrance.

Like a blonde who doesn’t get the punchline to a joke until two weeks later… APRIL FOOL’S

being a child of the 80s

i sometimes still get stuck in that mindset

forgetting the instant gratification of social media that allows you to let everyone

know what you are doing even as you are doing it

rather than waiting for the chance to get together with a friend days or weeks later

to show him or her the photos from your outing or vacation

that, and I remember rotary dial phones and pulse or tone option

Here’s what’s in store for

upcoming posts –  “stay tooned”

MORE Emm-En-Emms and Eff-En-Effs:

monday night movies and friday night films . . . can you guess which days those will show up?


Coinstar coin counting machines – do they skim off the top or are they on the up and up?

They take 9.8%  or about 10 cents on the dollar just to count your money,

but some machines are set up to trade your change for a gift card without a fee.  .  . or so you think.


My much anticipated follow up video to my McDonald’s 4 year old cheeseburger experiment was finally shot and is currently in post production.

I’m waiting on the results from the doctor to see if it was worth risking my health to do it.

2010 St Pete Festivals Of Speed

This year I got video AND photos of some nice rides including a BATMOBILE from the Michael Keaton Batman movies.

My take on Renaissance Festivals and those silly costumes and goofy way of talking.

More Terry’s Favorite Things to share:

Favorite blender, pocket knife – don’t leave home without it (unless of course you are flying commercial post 09/2001), gotta have water generator, cool gadgets, Shaklee favorites and more,


What can I say other than barf. -Gotta pay uncle sam again this year.

Who is Uncle Sam anyway?  Some long dead old fictitious geezer that was on a poster telling you to die for some stupid manufactured conflict in a foreign land?  Oh wait, that’s not who I pay. I pay that private company that’ll strong arm you into submission if you stand up to it.  Yeah, apparently the IRS is not the government – not in the way you thought.

Limitations of the Physical Body.

I just learned my Great Uncle George died a week ago @ 94… Miss you – hope you’re playing your music where ever you are… He knew Les Paul  personally and helped me get my current guitar – a heritage 535.  I wish I remembered how to make those dollar bill bow ties.

My Final Blog Post – So Long and Thanks For All The Fish!

People have been emailing me asking where I’ve been and why I haven’t posted hardly anything all of March. Not including the silly blog pee post for St Patrick’s Day, that is.

Well, truth be told, I decided to officially inform everyone that today will be my last blog post.  I had a bit of good fortune back in March that more or less completely changes the game.

I’m not going to spell it out as I’d like to maintain some of my privacy – at least for as long as possible.  These things have a way of getting out no matter what precautions you take.

I’ll just say that my choices and options have opened up considerably – and sooner than I anticipated.

Needless to say I’ve been very pre-occupied these last several weeks.

I’ve been spending the last few weeks planning and re-evaluating my goals and projects I wish to accomplish.

I have some extensive traveling lined up for starters.  I’m also delving into my art and music much more.

I am dedicating more time and energy into  my inventions, investigations and projects.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’ve spent a lot of time and money learning and teaching various internet skills – marketing and tech alike. I intend to utilize this knowledge as I move forward – it’s just no longer my main focus but rather a tool to get results.

“There’s that word again… Focus…. are things blurry in the future? Is there something wrong with people’s vision?”

Thank you all for your readership and check in / stay subscribed to my RSS – I’ll keep this blog going and post updates of really cool s***. It probably won’t be as consistent or as frequent as before…. before March that is.
