The Natural Solutions Foundation’s Food Freedom eJournal is an online publication of video and written materials regarding our discovery, development, demonstration, documentation and dissemination of natural solutions to the food freedom crisis. The Journal issues are published at www.FoodFreedomeJournal.org and this web page is an annex to the Journal where we are publishing some images of the greenhouses being built and used at the Natural Solutions Center, Volcan, Chiriqui Province, Panama (which is the headquarters of the Nutrient Clinical Trials Network, The Dr. Rima Institute and the BeyondOrganic™ Valley of the Moon Restaurant). We also include images of our All Natural BeyondOrganic™ Coffee Finca (farm). This extraordinary coffee is available through www.ValleyoftheMoonCoffee.com.
Most of the photos below were taken during 2011 at the two acre Headquarters Finca which includes the Natural Solutions Center building, the HQ building, a storage facility and the first two of four planned greenhouses. The first greenhouse, made from bamboo has been on the site since Spring, 2009. The second greenhouse is being completed as this page is being posted and the remaining two greenhouses will be documented here as they are built. The Foundation Trustees intend the greenhouses as demonstration facilities that will also provide BeyondOrganic produce to the Valley of the Moon Restaurant.

The Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF) is an international NGO (Non Governmental Organization) founded in 2004 by Maj Gen Bert Stubblebine (US Army, ret) and his wife, Dr Rima E Laibow, MD. NSF is focused on comprehensive health solutions and access, including the primary importance of access to clean, unadulterated food within the context of functional social systems. We are a not for profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization in the United States and are active and registered in several countries. The Mission of the Foundation is to discover, develop, document, demonstrate and disseminate natural solutions to the impediment surrounding health and food coupled with achieving and maintaining a healthy self, community and world.
Since its founding, the Natural Solutions Foundation has pursued a vigorous program on many fronts, including natural solutions to significant social problems centering around access and human rights focusing on food, information and technology dissemination and the resultant increased personal and community wellness. With the internationalizing of food supplies, we see our Eco Development Community in Panama as part of the global solution to global issues that strongly impact Americans – thus, the Valley of the Moon Eco Demonstration Community: www.MyValleyoftheMoon.org
From its inception, VotM has been designed to be inclusive along a number of different parameters, rather than an enclave of isolated people. To further that inclusiveness, the Trustees have created a new program for people in small households (no more than 2-3 persons) who would like to share BICs. That means that two couples, or a 3 person household and a single person, or a single person and a couple) could combine their resources to build a duplex home (in whatever creative way works) and share the opportunities conferred by the BIC.
A BIC is a Beneficial Interest Certificate and indicates participation in the community, carrying with it certain rights and commitments. For example, if two households share the cost of the BIC equally (and how you want to do it would be up to the people involved), then when the sharing of interest took place annually, each partial BIC holder would get 1/2 of the distribution. Both households would be able to access the VotM goods and services at coop prices, would be able to participate in the governance although if it came to a vote, the BIC UNIT would cast a single vote and how that vote was cast would be for the households sharing it to decide before that vote was cast. The infrastructure costs for the duplex (water, electricity, internet) might have to be a bit higher than for a single household, but that is a detail which the design aspects of the community will sort out.
The Trustees are really excited about this possibility. What it means is that we can expand the number of people who are able to participate in this wonderful community without increasing the environmental pressure on the land. It means to more IRAs and 401s can get protected, increasing our funds so we can purchase our land sooner and move to Phase III, our permanent home!
So, in essence, the Trustees are now running a limited BIC Sharing “Dating Service” since we know that you want to have neighbors with whom you are comfortable.
So if this idea is of interest to you, we invite you to a Webinar on Wednesday, October 27 at 9 PM Eastern.
Your price of admission is not money. Rather, we need a picture of you and anyone else in your household who would be part of your BIC share and this check list submitted electronically. We will post both in a slide show along with contact information. Once you “meet” electronically, you can decide whom you would like to talk to to see if it’s a good match. You can, of course, “meet” as many other households as you like.
If this time is not convenient for you, you can view it at your convenience once you have submitted your Photo and Questionnaire. The Webinar will be archived and the link will be posted on this page.
So, once again: Ground Rules for the Shared BIC Webinar, Wednesday, October 27, 9 PM Eastern Time
1. Email a photo of the person or people who will be involved in a shared BIC with the names and ages of each indicated along with the photo.
2. Indicate the name of the person who will be the contact point for the household and how to contact you (e.g, Skype, email, phone) and the best times to call, including those times NOT to call. Remember to indicate your timezone!!!!
3. Answer the following questions as completely as possible
a. Here are the reasons that I/we am/are considering moving to the Valley of the Moon:
b. Here are the things I am looking for as a member of the Valley of the Moon Community:
c. Here are the things that I would like in a household with which I/we am/are sharing a homestead site and duplex-type housing:
d. Here are the things that I would not like in a household with which I/we am/are sharing a homestead site and duplex-type housing:
e. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I enjoy recreational noise and do not mind it in my neighbors
f. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I am a sociable person who enjoys spending time with neighbors
g. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I would not mind it if my neighbor had a household pet which stayed in their house
h. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I would not mind it if my neighbor had a household pet which stayed in our shared yard
i. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I want to have a personal garden for food
j. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I go to bed early and, if at all possible, I want to live near people who do the same
k. TRUE_____ FALSE _______ I would be bothered by children playing in our shared yard
l. Other (please be as specific as you can)
Please give as much information as you can and add anything else that is important to you. We’ll put your pictures and contact information up on a slide show so that others who fill out the questionnaire but are not able to attend the seminar on October 27, 2010 at 9 PM Eastern Time can access it later.
If you are concerned about security issues, the Trustees suggest that you set up a new email specifically for this purpose and for these correspondences. You need to be comfortable before you release your information to anyone.
If you have specific questions or thoughts on this shared BIC program, please feel free to contact Ralph Fucetola, JD, at firstname.lastname@example.org, Skype him at “vitaminlawyer” or phone him at 973-300-4594.
Remember, you are welcome to visit the Valley of the Moon (WITH ADEQUATE NOTICE, PLEASE!!!!!). One way to do that is to join Ralph and the group he will be traveling with on January 19-27, 2011.
You are not limited to that time, of course. Another way to visit would be to enroll in the extraordinary Five Elements Seminar which Angela Malek is going to be giving from the welcoming Five Elements Banquet on January 9 to the final Five Elements Breakfast on January 15, 2011.

Take Action now to make sure that YOUR Senators place a “HOLD” on this bill to insure that it is not passed by “Unanimous Congressional Consent”. One Senator, placing, and sustaining, a hold on the bill can force it to be delayed, despite the demands of Monsanto and their friends. HOLD it until December and it dies with the close of this Congress.
This just in: we have word that a Senator from an important western State opposes the bill and may be willing to face down Big Agribiz. Take this Action Item IF there is support from other Senators.
It is urgent that you take action now even if you have raised your voice on this topic before because massed protesting voices are OUR SIDE’s lobbyist!
Ban GMOs NOW! Once-And-For-All Before There Is No Going Back
Listen to the Elderly: They Have Seen It All, And They’ll Tell It Exactly ‘Like It Is’. Especially Maxine
Let me get this straight.
We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president who also smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.
What the hell could possibly go wrong?
Well, Vaccines Could Be Mandated. That Would Make Something Go Wrong: Your Health, Your Freedom and Your Survival, For Example
Vaccines and vaccine mandates are very much in the wind, but not, alas, in the MMD, the Media of Mass Deception. Once the people of the US and most other countries of the world rejected, en mass, the absurd and dangerous H1N1 pandemic scam (including NY State and NJ both backing down on their vaccine mandates when the Natural Solutions Foundation and friends sued the State Health Departments in Federal Court), the Pholks at Big Pharma had some other tricks up their collective, and very dirty, sleeves. Recall as you read the rest of this article that there is not a single shred of evidence showing that ANY vaccine is either safe OR effective, let alone both, although such certainty is required by US law before any vaccine can be approved. Recall, too, that the US is the most vaccinated country in the world. And the sickest. And the most drugged. Recall that 1 American in 3 will die from cancer, a disease of under nutrition and environmental toxicity, including vaccine poisoning and chemicals in food (enter Codex!)
And recall that the US has:
1. Changed the ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, part of the CDC which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS) Guidelines to recommend Seasonal Flu vaccination for everyone starting at 6 months and extending throughout the life span. What ACIP “recommends” generally becomes State, school and other agency mandates within a very short time.
“The 2010 ACIP guidelines emphasize the following:
* All persons at least 6 months old should receive annual vaccination for the 2010-2011 influenza season;
* During the 2010-2011 season, 2 doses of a 2010-2011 seasonal influenza vaccine should be given at a minimal interval of 4 weeks to children aged 6 months to 8 years with unknown vaccination status who have never received seasonal influenza vaccine before (or who received seasonal vaccine for the first time in 2009-2010 but received only 1 dose in their first year of vaccination), as well as to children who did not receive at least 1 dose of an influenza A (H1N1) 2009 monovalent vaccine regardless of previous influenza vaccine history…”
2. Included H1N1 vaccines in the “seasonal” flu shots for 2010-2011 flu season despite a total lack of medical requirement for such inclusion (or, indeed, for any vaccination, for that matter). People avoided the seasonal flu shots at the same time they avoided the H1N1 shots in 2009-2010 leading to the lightest flu season in memory. The correlation is excruciatingly clear: flu shots create disease. Disease is good business. Therefore we must have flu shots, says the global government.
3. Ignored totally the fact that Canada, Finland and Australia have taken the GSK flu vaccine off the market in those countries because of serious side effects. Side effects include an incurable neurological condition called “narcolepsy” or uncontrollable sleeping episodes, convulsions, miscarriages and death. Of course, the FDA holds that the tremendous increase in post vaccination miscarriages, among those side effects, is not worth worrying about.
4. Conveniently found a “professional organization” to call for mandatory vaccination of health care workers at peril of losing their jobs if they are unvaccinated. The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, http://www.shea-online.org/, has done just that.
Healthcare professionals, however, are neither amused nor persuaded. In a Medscape Poll, the results are pretty much the same as they were last year when mandates were proposed for H1N1 vaccination of health care workers:
Among all responding HealthCare Professionals, 28% strongly favored the mandatory vaccination while 58% strongly opposed it.
Among physicians, a generally strongly pro-vaccination group, the results are extremely interesting:
36% strongly agree with the mandates while 44% strongly oppose them.
For nurses, who tend to be closer to the adverse events associated with vaccination, those strongly agreeing with the need for a mandate, 26%, were strongly outnumbered by those opposing it, 59%.
Only 34% of pharmacists, who sell the vaccines, strongly endorsed the mandate while 46% strongly opposed it.
Not one group of polled health professionals in the US endorsed a mandate. Here, by the way, is the question which these health professionals were asked in this survey:
“The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) recently released a policy paper recommending that healthcare workers be required to get the seasonal flu vaccine or face losing their job and professional privileges. Do you favor or oppose SHEA’s recommendation on mandatory vaccination for healthcare workers?”
The US Government, including FDA, CDC and ACIP cannot, apparently, get enough vaccines into the public. The Department of Defense (DOD) is not far behind since civilians working for the DoD Schools in Europe were notified on July 30, 2010 that their Swine Flu AND Seasonal vaccination was mandatory and that failure to receive this vaccination would result in dismissal from their jobs. Likewise, about 30,000 students are now required to receive the untested and unnecessary vaccines despite the fact that WHO has publicly rescinded their failed “Level 6 Pandemic” attempt.
Stars and Striped, a DoD publication, said,
“The immunization policy, mandated by U.S. European Command [EUCOM], covers both the seasonal and swine flu viruses and applies to teachers and employees at more than 80 Department of Defense Dependents Schools [DoDDS] in Europe, as well as 30,000 students. Children older than 6 months enrolled in base daycare centers and daycare center workers throughout Europe also are affected by the move.
“We fully support the EUCOM policy,” said DODDS-Europe spokeswoman Margaret Menzie”
So we Health Freedom advocates have to ask “Who owns the body of these teachers and their students?” Apparently, the Department of Defense does. And just who owns your body?
In October, 2009, GSK’s HPV vaccine, Cervavax, the first vaccine in the US to contain an oil in water adjuvant (similar to the dangerous compound squalene), was recommended for use in girls 10-25 years of age. Merck’s Gardasil is already approved for use for girls between 11 and 26. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/722855?src=mp&spon=34&uac=117629CN
Medical Insanity Alert – Fasten Your Intellectual Seat Belt!
Now, take a deep breath and look at these two headlines from today’s issue of Medscape Daily News, an electronic medical science newsletter which I receive each day:
Guidelines Updated for Use of 23-Valent Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine in Adults [A 23-valent vaccine is supposedly effective against 23 different types of disease causing organisms, in this case, bacteria – Dr. Rima]
September 8, 2010 “Invasive disease from Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) is a major cause of illness and death in the United States, with an estimated 43,500 cases and 5,000 deaths among persons of all ages in 2009,” write J. P. Nuorti, MD, DSc, and C. G. Whitney, MD, from the Division of Bacterial Diseases, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) Pneumococcal Vaccines Working Group. “This report provides updated recommendations from the …ACIP for prevention of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) (i.e., bacteremia, meningitis, or infection of other normally sterile sites through use of the …PPSV23 among all adults aged ?65 years and those adults aged 19-64 years with underlying medical conditions that put them at greater risk for serious pneumococcal infection.”
Pneumococcal Vaccine Dosing Schedule Linked to Higher Risk of Acquiring Multiresistant Strain [This vaccine is only /supposedly/ effective against 7 types of disease causing bacteria – Dr. Rima]
September 7, 2010 “A 2 + 1 pneumococcal vaccine dosing schedule is linked to an increased risk of acquiring a multiresistant strain, according to the results of a study reported in the September 8 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
“The rapid increase in multiresistant serotype 19A as a cause of invasive and respiratory pneumococcal disease has been associated in time with the widespread implementation of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccination (PCV-7) in several countries,” write Elske J. M. van Gils, MD, from University Medical Center Utrecht in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and colleagues.”
What could be crazier? The vaccine we have approved causes resistant organisms to develop and leaves people more susceptible to infection with them. YES! NOW, let’s create not a 7 organism vaccine, but a 23 organism one and watch this one screw up people’s immune systems so that not even the most potent antibiotic will work.
Nano silver? Oh, let’s ban it the way we have in Europe since it IS the universal safe, effective and inexpensive antibiotic which makes all other antibiotics unnecessary. Gives the lie to vaccines, too, since with a good immune system and nano silver you loose even the pretext that they have any place in health or prevention.
Flu Shot No Better than Placebo in Preventing Asthma Attacks
Stockholm, Sweden, September 16, 2002.
A new Swedish study has found that flu vaccine is “possibly no better than placebo in preventing exacerbations in asthmatic children.” Reporter Cameron Johnston reports that “Asthmatic children and other groups are usually encouraged to receive the flu vaccine each year as winter approaches. However, according to one study, the flu vaccine may be no better than placebo for preventing influenza-induced asthma exacerbation among children.
Japan Abandons flu Shots for Children
Large scale studies of compulsory flu vaccination in Japan of school aged children showed the vaccine to be ineffective and conducive to lawsuits due to adverse side effects. Two large studies one in 1980 and the other in 1985, involving four cities with vaccination rates between 1% and 90% showed little difference in flu incidence. In 1987, the Japanese government changed the flu vaccine from compulsory to voluntary. By 1989, even though only 20% of the population took the flu vaccine, the incidence of influenza did not increase. http://www.whale.to/vaccines/flu7.html
“One of the most bizarre twists on the flu vaccine saga is the CDC recommendation of 2001 that all pregnant women receive the vaccine in their second or third trimester. This recommendation even has doctors confused, since the vaccine remains a category C drug (unknown risk for pregnancy). No adequate studies have been conducted to monitor safety of the vaccine for mother and fetus. The only studies of adverse effects in pregnancy were conducted in the 1970s (Heinonen et al., 1973; Sumaya & Gibbs, 1979). Some flu vaccines still contain mercury as a preservative, despite a 1998 FDA instruction to remove mercury from all drugs. According to the CDC, two groups are most vulnerable to methylmercury, the fetus and children ages 14 and younger. An article published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 1999 stated, “the greatest susceptibility to methylmercury neurotoxicity occurs during late gestation” (Grandjean et al., 1999). How did CDC committee members determine that flu vaccines were safe for pregnant women? They did not. The committee, despite its own recommendation, states, “additional data are needed to confirm the safety of vaccination during pregnancy” (CDC, 2001b).
Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, one of the world’s leading immunogeneticists, states the chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease is 10 times higher if an individual has five consecutive shots than if they have one, two or no shots.
Source: transcribed notes of Dr. Fudenberg’s speech at the NVIC International Vaccine Conference, Arlington, VA September, 1997
and on and on and on and on. Yet the government insists vaccines are safe and effective just as if there were a shred of real evidence that they are either one.
This is simple madness. The craziness that is vaccination MUST stop at your body and your children’s. The choice is yours.
