Allergies in Humans and Pets

“If it comes from a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don’t!” Michael Pollan 

An allergy is when your immune system reacts to an allergen. The type of reaction that occurs can vary from mild to severe. Some of the most common allergies are nuts, pollen, and pets. Reporters on Express Yourself!™ Teen Radio, Nihal and Kirpa Gill,  provide information on allergies for both humans and pets. Allergies result from an overreaction of the immune system. The immune system has one very important job where it protects the body from viruses and other illnesses. Some common symptoms of allergies inhumans include allergies from dust, pollen, pet dander, certain foods, such as eggs and nuts, bee venom, medications, and latex. In pets, allergies include pollen, mold spores, dust mites, and insect venom. You can tell if a pet has an allergy because the animal reacts the same way as humans with hives, itching, swelling, redness, etc. 

To identify the cause of an allergic reaction in humans, it is helpful to keep a food diary and work with a doctor. Anyone with a food allergy needs to take care to avoid the trigger food. If a severe reaction is likely, it is recommended carrying an epinephrine auto-injector. For pets, make an appointment with a veterinarian for care and treatment. Allergies cannot be cured, but the synonyms and reactions you have can be maintained. Be diligent!

Growing Waterwise!

By Cynthia Brian

“Water is the driving force of all nature.” – Leonardo Da Vinci

Welcome to Summer! It’s going to be a hot one. 

If the newest studies reviewing tree rings are correct, we are currently in the worst drought since 800 A.D. The first three months of this year registered the least rain and snow on record. While we plunge into pools to cool off, our gardens will struggle to survive. Conserving water is top of mind as our climate becomes warmer. It’s time for all of us to plan to grow water-wise.

I recently attended a seminar sponsored by Monrovia and came away with increased awareness of how to maintain healthy landscapes during the dry seasons. There are numerous plants besides cacti and succulents that have low water requirements. When we re-think drought-tolerant landscapes, we may continue to enjoy our gardens with colorful and interesting trees, grasses, shrubs, and flowers. 

Drought-tolerant perennial contenders include:

Salvia

Blanket flower,

Catmint

Agastache

Guara

Milkweed

Penstemon

Verbena

Mallow

Coreopsis

Red hot poker

Kangaroo paw

Geranium

Spanish lavender

African daisy

Lantana

Yarrow

Statice

Everlasting sweet pea

Echinacea

Sage

Sea holly

Rose

Feverfew

Shrubs with minimal water needs are: 

Ceanothus,

Bottlebrush

Pride of Madeira

Heavenly bamboo

Pittosporum

Smoke tree

Cotoneaster

Butterfly bush

Hydrangeas that are three to four years old will do fine. Younger specimens will require more water.

Vines that I recommend are:

Bougainvillea

Honeysuckle

Jasmine

Climbing and rambling roses. 

Annuals don’t have roots that go as deep as perennials. They focus energy on flowering which requires increased moisture. 

These annuals usually require only weekly watering to one inch as opposed to daily drinks:

Zinnia

Marigold

Cleome

Portulaca

California poppy

Globe amaranth

Vinca

Chamomile

Cosmos

Sunflower

Wax begonia

To minimize water waste, prioritize planting drought-tolerant perennials, shrubs, and trees and augment with color spots of annuals. Established plants do better in a drought than in a newly planted landscape. A plant is considered established when its roots have taken hold and spread in the soil. Perennials take a year to be established plants. A shrub could take two to three years, and most trees need three or more years. For this reason, it is always recommended to plant a garden in spring and fall when the weather is milder. 

In a drought, paying attention to our trees is critical.  Give established trees a deep soak every three to four weeks to keep roots from rising to the surface. Trees will experience leaf drop in the heat, but the tree will survive. If your trees are two years old or younger, an easy way to give them a good drink is to drill holes in a five-gallon bucket to allow water to slowly trickle to the roots. When you use a soaker wand, make sure to position it six feet or more from the trunk of the tree or at the end of the canopy as that is where the roots are. Roots are not at the base.

A sampling of California native trees that will be beautiful and survive in a drought include:

Olive

Pomegranate

Fig

Marina strawberry

Desert willow

Pistache

Mimosa

Manzanita

Crape myrtle

Redbud

Keep an eye on your oak trees. They tend to topple over without any wind when they either have too much moisture or not enough. 

As much as we love our vegetable gardens, this season only grow what you will eat or share with family and friends. Because of the lack of water, it is not prudent to overplant. Herbs are mostly drought-tolerant, especially rosemary. 

To grow in water-wise knowledge, we need to embrace varied techniques for watering.

1.     Water early in the day before the temperature warms.

2.     Test your soil to determine its dryness. Only water when the soil is dry two to four inches down.

3.     Even on the hottest days, don’t be tempted to give your plants an extra drink.

4.     Group plants with similar watering needs in one area.

5.     Check irrigation systems for leaks.

6.     Inspect drip systems to make sure the hoses are not strangling plants.

7.     Watering deeply twice a week will keep your plants alive.

8.     Mulch, mulch, mulch with layers of at least three inches. 

9.     When adding to your garden in the summer, do so on a cool or cloudy day.

10.  Include water-conserving measures indoors by taking shorter showers. Keep a bucket in your showers and sinks to use for containers or outside. 

In the water restriction days during the extreme drought of the 1970s, the slogan was “If its brown flush it down. If it’s yellow, let it mellow,” as each flush wasted seven gallons. 

 June 20- 26 is designated as pollinator week. Bees, butterflies, birds, bats, beetles, wasps, and moths as well as smaller mammals transport pollen to various species to make our gardens grow. Without our pollinators, we would have no food. Honor these hard-working garden helpers by making your garden pollinator friendly. 

Take the plunge and grow water-wise this summer. Have a safe and healthy Independence Day!

Happy Gardening. Happy Growing.

Water-Wise, The Pain Solution, Praising Parents

Summer is here and with it water restrictions. What can you grow in a drought and how do you do it so that plants survive? Goddess Gardener, Cynthia Brian offers concrete suggestions for saving water and your landscape. 

Most of us are acquainted with everyday aches and pains.

Cynthia Brian interviews Dr. Saloni Sharma, with her book, The Pain Solution, a Patient-Proven Approach to Pain Prevention, Relief, and Eradication without Medication, Surgery, or Special Equipment.

Parenting is one of the most difficult jobs and the most under appreciated. It’s time we start giving positive parents proactive praise. Establish a family meeting time share the good news and the gratitude for one another.

Honoring Dads and Grads

MIRACLE MOMENT®“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.”  Billy Graham 
dad-heroA MESSAGE FROM FOUNDER/EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, CYNTHIA BRIANThe day I graduated from CAL Berkeley was a momentous occasion. As I walked across the stage in my cap and gown to receive my diploma, the realization that I was the very first person in my family to go to college was history-making. Being farmers, my parents did not have the money to send any child to college.  But I was determined and they encouraged me to find a way to finance the dream. From the time I was eight years old, I raised chickens and sold the eggs, carefully saving every penny to achieve my goal of a university education. Throughout my college years, I worked full time at a variety of jobs to pay for food, books, rent, tuition, and everything necessary to survive. Going to college was the best investment of my life. 
When it came to parents, I hit the golden jackpot. Living on a farm, we didn’t have many material possessions but my parents bestowed so much love and confidence on their five children that we always felt like the richest people in the world. It was my Dad that build the chicken coop so that I could venture on my higher educational ambition. It was my Dad that shined his bald head so that i could confidently look out at the audience as i strolled across that stage and, seeing his bald head know how much I was loved.  It was my Dad that cried when he walked me down the aisle on my wedding day. It was my Dad that upon his deathbed comforted me by saying “My end is your beginning.” My Dad always was and will always be my hero.
June is the month to celebrate educational milestones from pre-school to graduate schools. It takes work, perseverance, and support to graduate. 
June is also the month to honor the magnificent men in our lives that have nurtured us to be the people we are today.
Congratulations to graduates everywhere and thank you to the fathers who have made so much possible. 
We honor you.
 And remember, every day is a new beginning. Never give up on your dreams!
With gratitude,
Cynthia Brian

At the age of ten, she published her first book, The Karris Family. Since then, she’s been nationally and globally recognized for her short stories, poems, personal essays, and dramatic scripts. Through being a reporter and host at Express Yourself! Teen Radio,  she hopes to become more interactive with people. Her focus is on teen leadership and her segment is titled, Teenship. www.ExpressYourselfTeenRadio.comMy Favorite SuperheroSuperheroes are everywhere,In TV shows, movies, books, But the world can’t see the superhero who can’t fly,Jump over buildings,And read everybody’s mind. This superhero has a fascination for groceries,And would buy a house inside of Safeway,This superhero would sleep and procrastinate,This superhero only reads weird non-fiction or self-help books,Which have SAT level vocabulary. He doesn’t wear capes,Or a Spandex Suit,With cool graphics displayed everywhere,In fact all he wears are jeans and T-shirts,With a pair of thin-wired glasses set on his face. His name isn’t a household name which is mentioned all the time,Nobody knows him with a cool and unique name,Like “Iron Man” or “Spiderman”,His real name is quite simple and is often mispronounced,And his superhero alias is one word with two repeating syllables, Baba,Words uttered from a baby’s mouth.He is my favorite superhero because he is always there to save the day,Whether it is with his very passionately cooked dishes,Or instant math help,He is always there to cheer me on,And even if he physically doesn’t save the nation from doom,His soul lights up the earth’s very core.   BTSYA volunteer, Sharanya Roy enjoys writing and to her, each sentence has a life of its own.

TEEN REPORTERKeerthi Eraniyan, a budding philosopher who embodies the quintessence of everything and anything. She is a 7th grader from San Ramon, California, whose pastimes include debate, math, writing, and singing. Her ruminations involve the gradual extinction of humans, and she can be seen engulfed in an existential crisis. She relishes debate, the fickle thing that blitzes her fingers and propels her through life at the speed of light. In her segment, Nerd Extraordinaire, Keerthi strives to promulgate and publicize the extravagance of forensic debate and fiction writing and exhibit the world beyond plug and chug speech. She desires to introduce the debate world to listeners in a fascinating, magnificent, new way that manifests the air of debate, thick with spontaneous comebacks and the pure thrill of it.  ·      Listen to her first broadcast at Voice America Network, Empowerment Channel: https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/137873/summer-plansHELP CONTINUE THE POSITIVE WORKS! DONATE TODAY!Type Title HereOUR INTERNATIONAL RADIO BROADCASTS!Be empowered, motivated, energized, informed and amused.Truthful, heartfelt, and engaging topics and guests!LIVE on Wednesdays from 4-5pm PT, be entertained, informed, amused, and educated on StarStyle-Be the Star You Are!.

Succulent Summer

Digging Deep with Goddess Gardener, Cynthia BrianSucculent Summer

By Cynthia Brian

We Californians are constantly accused of not having seasons, but we do. We have fire, flood, mud, and drought.”  Phyllis Diller

It’s that time of the year again. School is out. The weather is warming. The drought continues. We fear fires. Flood and mud are distant memories. Because of water restrictions, many homeowners are seeking alternatives to thirsty vegetation that demand a constant drink. Enter succulents. 

Succulents have fleshy, thick leaves that store water and thrive in warm, dry conditions. They are very low maintenance, prefer dry conditions, and enjoy copious amounts of sunshine. Cactus are succulents, although most gardeners prefer succulents that do not have spines, stickers, or prickly pokes. Succulents are beautiful and come in a range of colors including green, silver, orange, yellow, purple, lavender, pink, red, bronze, and mixtures. The more sunlight they receive, the more colorful they become. Many of the fleshy leaves are arranged in rosettes. Succulents are easy to propagate through cuttings. Sometimes planting a single leaf will result in a new succulent. They have shallow roots and can be packed together for instant impact. Arranging succulents in swaths shows off the varying colors, textures, and forms resulting in a tapestry of interest. Replacing a lawn with an artful array of various succulent species, sizes and shapes is an attractive and waterwise investment. Succulents may be mixed in a garden with other drought-resistant floras such as lavender, lambs’ ear, verbena, sage, or lantana. 

Aeonium, Sedum, Echeveria, Sempervivum, Agave, and Aloe are just a few of the over five thousand species of succulents that will thrive in our landscapes.

Aeonium

Native to the Canary Islands, the thirty-five species of aeoniums tolerate a bit of shade with rosettes that grow taller  (some to five feet or more) than ground-hugging succulents. Cascading over containers, they add drama to a patio setting, especially with their conical clusters of flowers that bloom on eight-inch stems.

Sedum

Mostly concentrated in Mexico and Europe, sedums are extremely hardy and useful in dry gardening. They are terrific in containers and often spill over. As ground covers, many are low growing, making them perfect for rock gardens.

Echeveria

Always formed in rosettes and mostly derived from Mexico, these colorful succulents can be frilly, rounded, or fuzzy, boasting an arching stalk of a bell-shaped flower. 

Sempervivum

Native to Southern and Central Europe, sempervivum is a succulent rosette. The plants flower only once before dying making this genus monocarpic. Before dying, they produce a pup or chick around their mother plant.

Agave

Tequila is made from the agave plant, although the sap from the agave is toxic to both humans and pets. Hailing from North America, these rosette-shaped succulents have long, spiny tips with specimens that grow to ten feet in height and diameter as well as dish-size varieties. They produce a tall flower stalk from their center at maturity, which could be decades, then die. 

Aloe

There are hundreds of species of aloes originating from Africa or Central America. Some are prickly, others thick and fleshy. The Aloe Vera is used for medical applications and is a “must-have” plant for households, especially useful by squeezing the juice from a leaf on a cut or burn. 

To get ideas on creating a garden using succulents and other drought-tolerant plants, an enlightening excursion to the natural setting of the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek is encouraged. www.RuthBancroftGarden.org. Specimens may be purchased at their nursery and gift cards are available through their online store.

Goddess Gardener’s Guide

ü  Besides boasting about succulents, I am excited that I have been harvesting cauliflower. If you haven’t tried growing cole crops, I highly suggest doing so. I grow cabbage, Brussel sprouts, kale, and cauliflower. All parts of the plants are edible, and they are superfoods.

ü  In full bloom now, peonies and gardenias are a couple of my all-time favorite flowers to add to bridal bouquets as well as flower arrangements. Peonies only last a few days in a vase; however, their impact is dramatic. A single gardenia fills a room with glorious fragrance. 

ü  June officially begins the fire season. Make sure to remove debris from around structures and cut wild grasses to the ground. Most importantly, get your Go Bag ready and prepare for an evacuation, if necessary.

ü  We are in a serious drought with mandatory water restrictions. Maintain your landscape by watering deeply but infrequently in the morning and evening. 

ü  Perhaps a pot of peonies or a few containers of succulents would be an attractive gift for a garden-loving, water-saving dad for Father’s Day?

 Relish a succulent summer and stay safe.

Succulent Season, Obesity in Kids, Family Playtime

Succulents have fleshy, thick leaves that store water and thrive in warm, dry conditions. They are very low maintenance, prefer dry conditions, and enjoy copious amounts of sunshine. Goddess Gardener, Cynthia Brian talks about including succulents in a drought-ravaged landscape.

Obesity in children has become a problem in the USA, especially in children ages 5-11. Obesity is a complex disease. Treatment plans are essential for improvement to build healthy habits.

There is nothing better than spending quality time with family members. Children learn through play. Understanding how to help your kids express themselves while having fun at every age will reap benefits in empathy, cooperation, and many social skills.

Connection the Brain and the Dinner Plate

“Good nutrition creates health in all areas of our existence. All parts are interconnected.” – T. Collin Cambell 

Rose hosts a program about her favorite topic, food and nutrition. In her segment Bite share she discusses the importance of urban food policy, food access, and nutritional education. This show focuses on clean eating, organic food, and eating to optimize your body’s functions. Nihal talks about how eating healthy is the best way to keep your body clean and ready for daily living. Eating organic and healthy fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, lean meats, and grains help you become more active and focused, especially when taking a test. He also gives information about the importance of vitamins and how eating well nourishes mental health. Sharanya joins the conversation by offering how to construct recipes that are healthy and delicious. She then reads an original poem she wrote, “Textures” about the beautiful food that Mother Nature provides. We are what we eat. Eat clean, eat smart, and eat for your brain.

Hummingbirds, Constipation, Targeted Scams

https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/137613/hummingbirds-constipation-targeted-scams

Everyone loves watching the aerial acrobats of hummingbirds. Do you know how to attract hummingbirds to your garden and keep them there? Goddess Gardener, Cynthia Brian offers suggestions for feeding and encouraging them to nest in your yard!

Constipation! We don’t want to talk about it, yet Americans spend $750,000 annually dealing with the issue. Find out what causes constipation and what you can do to keep yourself moving naturally.

We address the challenges of scams on the StarStyle radio broadcast regularly in an effort to keep our listeners safe. A popular new scam targeting hobbyists is a twist on a classic con. Fraud is everywhere and it is a big business, but you do not have to be a victim. Tune in for help.
