Meet Turtlewomen a Beautiful, Health Conscious and Awesome Communicator

She's very health concious today

She's a Flexitarian & I'm an Oxygenarian?

I like to consider myself an Oxygenarian, which I coined the phrase myself recently, and posted it to my facebook wall. It actually means I'm attempting to eat only foods high in nutrients & oxygen, or antioxidants which are more alkaline then acidic (Organic uncooked veggies, berries, other fruits, unprocessed nuts & grains or raw whole foods), and we sparingly eat shrimp, fresh salmon and tuna.

I've heard of the flexitarian terminology though, but I don't go by it much, only because many people have yet to understand the truth behind that of the whole cooked foods, and uncooked foods (Raw foods) concepts.

Turtlewoman, your hub titled "The Flexitarian Diet: Best of Both Worlds" is a cool one indeed, and it points out your experience as a person who came to learn about health consciousness, and your overall adjustment to a changing society, and culture of various eating patterns.

Many of us today all are struggling with the whole dietary balancing act for sure, and I like your take on the whole being more flexible with your eating habits, as opposed to being extreme, like many people end up doing. Even though my preferred methods of eating might vary slightly from yours, and by a few degrees or so.

A wish of epic proportions

I just wish this whole health movement was started back when my mother was alive though, because she may have been able to reverse the harmful effects of the breast cancer she had lost her life too, back in late 2006.

I truly wished this not only because we lost her, and I'm sure many other folks feel the same about their loved ones they've lost to disease, but also because she had a horrible diet. So she over indulged in eating of processed foods, cooked foods, meats containing harmful toxins and chemical pollutants, and unknowingly due to obvious ignorance to all the hidden dangers, most recently being exposed worldwide.

This may have been the major cause of her contracting the retched disease. (Foods high in sugars, oily foods, fast foods, high cholesterol foods, fats, dairy products and highly acidic foods etc...)

Today people are discovering the truth to all the heath risks associated with eating meats, and acidic foods, and the news is spreading rapidly now.

Check out the documentary "Forks over Knives" on Hulu

It was free about 2 weeks ago, but its now on Hulu Plus, it's a must see documentary.

My Hub I wrote about Dr. Max Gerson -


My Personal Choice of Diet

Me and my wife are hoping to change our diets to 100% raw foods some day, but it would require us to live in a more natural and warmer climate, where we could get into farming and growing our own vegetation, until then though we will still eat a ratio of cooked foods to uncooked fresh organic produce of veggies, and fruits, nuts, berries, wholegrain breads, other various unprocessed food products etc...

American society is catching up slowly but surely to the rest of the globe, when it comes to understanding overall health issues dealing with poor eating habits, and so you're definitely not alone with your personal health decisions, and the fight to stay on track as well as eat what suits you best.

I think more people need to know about true life stories today such as this, and the more we share valuable ones as you've shared about being a flexitarian, the more people will learn to better themselves in their daily lives, because its wholesome from a real persons voice and life experience, and not some rigid like course material in school from a textbook.

I actually still eat fish a great deal today rather than other meats, I do know that by simply cooking it or any foods for that matter, the violent heats, scorching oils, and all plays a huge role in the loss of precious oxygen, and vital nutrients on the cellular level. So its quite the dilemma to think of actually eating raw fish, which I'm sure many people have done when it comes to eating sushi, and potentially other types of seafood. I like eating seaweed though, I tried it and its actually not to bad, but I'm not sure if it was cooked, or uncooked.

The funny thing is that this whole Oxygenarian thing I titled, which I claim to be today, when it comes to food, is actually something I recently learned of trying to do, within the last 4 months or so, and mostly from researching about the harmful affects of certain foods, just as you've gathered yourself Turtlewoman in your studies, and trials in your life throughout the years. I've also written a few hubs on the subject, and the very first one I wrote was inspired by watching the documentary, The Beautiful Truth, which was about a man who once lived known as Dr. Max Gerson, and his discovery of a cure for cancer back in 1931. Now they have a new one out called, "The Gerson Miracle", both of these must see documentaries, are on Youtube, and cost nothing to watch.

Our overall Health Awareness Today!

I'm just glad that there's so much knowledge floating around today, that is all about heath consciousness overall, and the fact that people now have an alternative way of finding better nutrition, as opposed to many years back, when there wasn't a Wholefoods or Traders Joes, or even a health food store in sight to come to our rescue, it seems like the food movement, and going green thing is taking precedence, and is the going trend now.

Spreading that Hub loving Appreciation-

Thanks Turtlewoman for showing your strength in what you believe in, and the determination to eventually achieve overall heath success. Your great deal of insightful comments you've been leaving me, has prompted this hublove response I wrote here for you, and besides that of the inspiration I also received by the reading of that cool hub you wrote above, and so paying it forward, is how I'm showing my version of Hublove back towards your direction.

I also commend you on your awesome start here as a hubpages writer with 50 hubs at 4 months, because its a strong presence you've worked on thus far, and I know you'll succeed here as a hubpages writer for sure. Keep up the awesome communications here, and activities here in the community the top spot on hubpages is where I believe you have the potential to surely go in the near future with enough efforts, and determination as well.



Final words

You wrote a truly awesome hub Turtlewoman, I liked the images you chose to use, and how you explained your desire to maintain your current path as you see fit, I definitely voted it up and will share it with my friends, family and everywhere I could with many of the sharing tools provided, and those in which I possess myself such as Pearltrees.

You are at it again CloudExplorer, I've learned so much from Turtlewoman since being here at Hubpages. She is a great source of inspiration for me. I made her homemade pop tarts with my boys and they loved them. Enjoyed reading this! Take care, Kelley

I'm really enjoying your series of hubs profiling different hubbers. Being a fairly new hubber it is great way to be exposed to different writers. Thanks!

Thanks Kelleyward for reading and sharing with me once again wow your on point, I'm enjoying this exploration through all of my older hubs, to see who paid more attention to me, and those who deserve these hub dedications.

I have to study their hubs in entirety that I've already read once before, plus I must know of other interactions with them in the Hubpages community, and it takes a great deal of concentration to do such a thing, and intense research using my hubtivity pages, and follow info, its tough, but its well worth the effort.

Its a tough thing to write about so many of our fellow hubbers like this, but I'm doing my best to get out what I can and all I know of them, at least the hubbers I've selected who truly deserve to get recognized by the hubpages community. I have about 12 or 13 more hublove hubs to go to complete the 20 part series.

Hey, spartucusjones thanks for reading and sharing with me today, I been working my digi fingers like crazy here.

Yup its a fun thing to do, to interact with so many hubpages authors, and in so many cool ways today, and then to write about those special folks who've went the extra mile, or show some sort of added interest from their intense activities here, and personal plus community efforts.

I admire people who can stick to a regimen of good healthy foods. I try, but come short when I smell a hamburger cooking.

Your hubs are informative and useful.

Thanks Billybuc, I met Turtlewoman a while back, but its tough to communicate with everyone, and so I just got to her hub I posted above, and I liked it so much I figured its time to give her credit for commenting to me so many times.

I'm also thankful for her leaving me such awesome communicative and insightful feedback in so many of my hubs over the full span of us knowing one another here on hubpages, besides her deserving a hublove dedication for writing a very helpful hub and for standing her ground on her own health consciousness.

Aww this is a nice surprise, Michael! I truly appreciate that you've taken the time out to write this hub! You are a very kind and awesome person, one of a kind. Hubpages is a big community and it's easy to get lost here but with people like you, I feel welcomed and right at home.

"Oxygenarian" huh? That's definitely a cool term, but what's even better is the true meaning and force behind it. Everyone needs oxygen and water to survive, yet take for granted that those elements are also in green plants and fruits, at their rawest and whole form. I think you've got a great healthy eating plan set up with your wife. I do eat as much raw foods as possible too especially green smoothies and fruits. Btw if you love fish, but prefer to eat raw, try sashimi the next time you head out to a sushi place. Raw salmon and yellow tail are awesome, especially when they're fresh. ;-)

I'm sorry to read about your mom. She would have been proud knowing that you are spreading some knowledge about healthy eating. My main goal is to educate as many people as I can about nutrition through my hubs. Enough of my rambling...just wanted to let you know that Im really glad we have something in common. And I'm thankful to have met you here on HP. Thanks again for the shout out! You're awesome! :-) Cheers!

And thanks Kelley and Billy, you guys are making me blush.

Yay my friend Turtlewoman has landed on the Cloudport terminal, lol.

I'm so glad you made it here to your hub dedication, it wasn't hard for me to write one for you, because your so genuine, a sweet person, a awesome writer, and who can forget that cool profile of yours.

My wife got slightly jealous when she saw the title of this hub, but its all good, I had to give credit where its due, and you my dear deserved this hub for sure. Thanks for being so kind to leave me so many wonderful messages.

I wish I could keep up with you by matching the amount of hubs read that you've done for me, but since its literally impossible to do while simultaneously doing the same for all others, this is my way of showing my appreciation.

You're a beautiful person all the way around Turtlewoman, and once again I wish you much success in hubpages as a writer, and in life beyond these machines we use today.
