Thorlos Consumers Choose Living Beyond Breast Cancer

Thorlos supports Living Beyond Breast Cancer this month and beyond with its padded socks specifically for people receiving chemotherapy to treat the disease. 

Thorlos became involved in the cause in 2007 after understanding it had the responsibility to take an active role. A group of employees joined a survivor in a three day fund raising walk that totaled nearly 60 miles. We learned so much that weekend. First, we were surrounded by a sense of caring and love that was incredibly strong yet impossible to put into words. We also quickly saw that our sock products – that are fabulous for foot and blister protection – were “sorely” needed (pun intended). The only question was how should we participate?shop.thorlo.thumb

In the first year we supported a single organization and quickly learned our consumers wanted us to also help other organizations that had helped them. Being a smaller brand we do listen closely to our consumers. Through their encouragement we decided to have them designate how our donations should be allocated. Our program donates $1 from each pair of pink padded Thorlos® sold to a worthy Breast Cancer Charity. Initially it was on two sock styles. We have now increased it to six styles including one for men which can be seen on our website. As you might guess LBBC was one of the organizations our consumers insisted their $1 be given to.

They were right! We have learned that LBBC is a terrific organization of people and programs devoted to the newly diagnosed, young women, those living with metastatic breast cancer, African-Americans, those diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer and LGBT people affected by breast cancer. It complemented the other organizations our consumers wanted their donations to go to.

So our active role is to help people participate year after year in fund raising walks and runs by protecting and taking care of their feet with our specially padded sock products. This year we asked the Institute for Preventive Foot Health – another nonprofit organization we support – to develop and fill three information voids important to fund raisers and those in the midst of fighting the disease. With LBBC we encourage you to review each of the following articles:

Cause Walking: How to Protect Your Feet Before, During and After the Event

Benefits of Regular Exercise for Women with Breast Cancer

How Chemotherapy Can Affect the Feet

Please contact us if we can help you or a loved one with their foot health needs. You will be surprised the difference Thorlos “heart and soul” approach can make (pun intended).

  1. Allopaths, ayurvedics and homeopaths are worse then quacks?

    Health and immune system of a person is decided by quality and quantity of Blood (fluid). Whatever we eat and drink brings changes in our blood. Blood is the only thing that moves in our body.

    There are 1000s of minerals, vitamins, chemicals and bio matters that determine the health of a person. The worst part is that all these minerals, vitamins etc are inter linked. The change in one of the minerals bring huge changes in rest of the things (minerals etc.). There is no scientific study of the relationship between these minerals and vitamins. In fact the most foolish thing is to try – to understand the relationship between these elements. As per simple mathematics taught in class 11 & 12 the combinations (possibilities) of these relationships is 1 followed by 1 lac zeroes. There is no super computer which is capable of calculating these relationships even in trillion trillion trillions years.

    The possibilities of relationships in 128 element health system (if we assume that the total number of minerals, vitamins and molecules in human body are just 128) is 3.85 x 10 raised to the power 215. That is a very huge number to decipher even for a super computer. There is no possibility of making a super computer in next trillion years that can handle such a huge number.

    Now think of 1000 or more health elements (minerals, vitamins etc). That is just a mad number.

    And believe me – Allopaths, Ayurvedics and Homeopaths claim to decode such huge numbers. They must be very greedy people to cheat people with such numbers.

    So what the 3 main medicines systems of the world are doing.

    Allopathy, Ayurved and Homeopathy are keeping themselves busy in inventing new lies every day.

    You may recall that 40-50 years back these so called scientists said that calcium supplementation will strengthen our bones. But later they said that calcium alone cannot strengthen the bones, we need vitamin D3 as well. Now it is accepted D3 and calcium do nothing for bones. What next???

    The so called scientists are still waiting to invent the next trillion dollar lie.

    What is the value of work done by these 3 medicines systems in last 1000 years – ZERO. Why?

    Let us try to understand.

    Take a glass of water. Add 1 spoon of salt to water. Taste the water. If salt is more, you will add some more water to adjust it to match your taste.

    If you feel salt is less, you will reduce water.

    But no person with common sense add sugar or some other substance to make it palatable.

    Now there is 5000 ml blood (fluid) in the human body.

    At any given point of time some of the above referred health elements are in excess and some are in shortage. It is next to impossible for a super computer to calculate what is in excess and what is in shortage.

    But Kidneys can do this job without much fuss. The kidneys do this job without making any noise day in day out.

    So to adjust the amount of any mineral in our blood, all that needs to be done is adjust the total amount of fluid in the body at any given point of time.

    So the best course is to increase the water intake on Day 1 and stop drinking water on Day 2.

    The above routine of Day 1 and Day 2 takes care of Life Style imbalances causes due to wrong choice of foods and medicines.

    So life style Diseases will disappear with removal of imbalances of minerals and vitamins. And that is free of cost.

    And all the other infections, dengue, swine flu and E bola are all due to imbalances of fluid in the body. All these require adjustment of fluids and minerals.

    Recap the Solution

    Day 1 – Drink 200 ml water every hour except the hour we take our meals. Normal meals to be taken on this day. Try to cut down on tea and other liquids. So water intake will be there from say 7 am to 10 pm.

    Day 2 – No water or other fluids after 10 PM on day 1. So 10 PM on day 1 to 7 AM of Day 3 there will be no water or liquid intake. That is about 33 hours.

    For next 5 days drink about 5-6 glasses of water with 2 hour gap.

    Repeat Day 1 and Day 2 after 1 week, till you get complete cure.

    That will cure every disease on this earth.

    This cure is better then allopathy, ayurved and homeopathy all put together by about 10 raised to the power 215 times. And that is such a huge number.
