As a child our family lived off the land and everything was stored in glass. This was normal to me and I continued this when I raised my family. It is still all glass in our home today. The only plastic I have are the jar lids.

All of our salad dressings and condiments are homemade and stored in glass. I store all leftovers in glass containers too.

It is a simple change to make, and so important when we realize what has been done not only to our bodies, but our water supply, the oceans and sea life that depends on clean water for food and life.

We really need to consider perhaps no longer buying sea salt but use Himalayan pink salt, as sea salt has been found to contain microplastic particles.

Please share this with others,. Be aware, be smart, be joyful and be in good health, God so loves us !

I am sharing this awesome article from Dr. Mercola and I ask that you please share it with many others

Those of us who have family members affected by the glycophates in Round-Up are warned not to talk about it for fear of backlash that higer uppers would implement.

Now this is sad on our world. And no chemicals belong in our food.

This article about allergies and autism from glycophates should wake us all up. Remember we are in control of our choice of foods we bring into to our homes and cook
And worse yet is eating out as we have no idea or control where the food served was purchased or grown or saturated with what pesticides
This is a bit long, but please take time to read, be aware, pray more become aware and share this with others

I appreciate the positive feedback on the last newsletter which highlighted the many reasons for eating keto breads or healthier breads. .

I have been experimenting with recipes and will share a couple with you. I have tested them and they are so good !

Going back many years, several corporations required extensive medical exams prior to a person being hired. Working in the hospital setting, I was aware of the laboratory involvement in these tests. Sorry to bring this up, but our gut reflects a person’s true health. So if the persons stool sample did not float many times they were not hired, as this indicated thes person was not well enough to work around ill people or be exposed to germs in the hospital environment. One reason stools do not float is when a diet is full of carbs

In Bible days wheat was the largest part of their diet,. “Give us this day our daily bread But our grains are no longer nutrient dense. Most all grain fields are now GMO infected and even if a farmer plants a nonGMO field of grains, the winds blow and cross pollinates the fields with GMO pollen and now no longer natural grains.

Compounds in wheat affect the same receptors in our brains that are triggered by drugs of addiction, like heroin. That is why a person feels so euphoric eating breads. And just keep coming back for more, the sugar spike induced by high carb breads elevates dopamine causing the craving neurochemical. And each of us can close our eyes and smell fresh baked bread and immediately feel euphoric. Becomes a love affair with bread

Cardiologist, Dr. William Davis calls wheat “The perfect chronic poison, he is the author of Wheat Belly. And for a poison, we sure eat a lot of it !
We can have our bread and be well too ! We just have to choose healthy breads to support our healthy goals, no digestive disturbances, no inflammatory grains, no high-carb starches, no blood sugar spikes and a taste so delicious it could be serve in a fine restaurant. And the biggest benefit you will notice is a smaller waistline and weight loss along with more energy.

I experimented with loaf breads and breakfast or desert breads (banana, date, cranberry) croutons, and will be working on pizza crusts, flat breads, and hamburger buns and rolls.

If any one wishes to know any of the recipes, just let me know at church or email (jeffanddixien@gmail.com) and I will get them to you. .

There is an art to baking bread, it is a science, like chemistry. And as with Chemistry, the slightest variation can make a big difference in the results of our bread.

If I gave you a one cup measuring cup to fill with flour, your cup would weigh different than my one cup because of the way we filled it, one might be packed more dense than the other. So this is why gram measurements are perfect, not to say you can’t use the standard measuring by teaspoons, cups etc.
If you have a kitchen scale that measures in grams this is more perfect, I paid $10 for mine. I will give measurements in both standard volume and metric.

These breads will not rise as high as commercial breads Use 9×5 or 8×4 size loaf pans. I cut and line bottom and sides of pan with parchment paper and I don’t remove the bread from the pan until is cool a bit as it will fall if taken out too soon. You can do an egg wash on the top if you wish

My favorite is loaf bread which is great toasted with butter, and also great for French toast. It is soft and flavorful for sandwiches

DRY INGREDIENTS: WET INGRIDENTS:
3/4 cup Almond flour (80 g) 1/4 cup hot water (60 ml)
3 Tbsp. Coconut flour (20 g) 3 (farm) eggs + 1 egg white (180 g)
1 tsp baking soda (5 g) 2 Tbsp Organic Apple cider vinegar
(30 ml)
1/4 tsp sea or pink salt (1.3 g)
3 tsp organic psyllium husk powder
( 9 g)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Grease 7.5×3.5 loaf pan (instructions say stainless steel is better, I like cast iron or glass. I use butter or coconut oil
3. Place parchment cut to size on bottom and sides, or can make a parchment sling covering the bottom and up and over the sides.
The bread should rise to about 2 inches
4. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients
5. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, egg white and apple cider vinegar. Add the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
6. Pour in hot water and stir vigorously. Batter will be th ick and sticky, like oatmeal texture.
7. Spread into prepared pan. Put in oven, bake 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
8. Cool bread in pan for 10-15 minutes. Then take out and put on a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an air tight container.

Sounds like a lot of work, but any changes at first take time and then it becomes smooth and so easy, and so good.

Breakfast roll/flat muffin/bagel like rolls: We love these for our breakfasts, putting on orange marmalade, cherry jam, creamed cheese, lay flattened scrambled eggs topped with cheese. So many ways to enjoy these. Even the grandkids love them, fist size and fun to figure out interesting toppings

DRY INGREDIENTS WET INGREDIENTS
1 cup almond flour (105 g) 2 (farm) eggs (100 g)
2 Tbsp coconut flour, packed firm (14 g) 2 Tbsp organic apple cider
vinegar (30 ml)
1 Tbsp ground golden flaxseed (7.5g)
1/2 tsp arrowroot powder (4 g)
1/2 tsp baking soda (2.5 g)
1/4 tsp sea or pink salt (1.3 g)
Optional: You can to with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, sea or pink salt, dried onion flakes, coconut flakes if you want.

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Lightly grease a donut pan or muffin pan that has low sides is best
3. In a small bowl, whisk the dry ingredients
4. In another small bowl, whisk the wet ingredients until mixed and combined
5. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix using a rubber or silicone spatula to form a thick batter.
6. Use a ladle to transfer about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of batter to each greased circle section.
* I prefer the donut pan because it has the center post making a hole in the roll.
7. Sprinkle the top of your choice
8. Put in oven, bake 18-20 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
9. Cool pan for 5-10 minutes and then cool rolls on a wire rack. Serve freshly baked or toasted with your choice of inside ingredients and toppings.
10. Store cooled rolls/flat muffins/bagels in an airtight container in the refrigerator. So good when toasted the next day…… ENJOY

Home – Keto Breads v3-1

If you close your eyes and think about the smell of fresh baked bread -. It makes us feel so cozy and mkes our mouth water. Nothing mord like having my mom near me than the smell of fresh baked bread

Here is quite a long article with lots of valuable information.

*Health & Wellness group is not promoting the book on this link. Please review information, and know you can get many keto bread recipes on internet just do a keyword search of keto-bread on the google, youtube or other search engines.

June 3, 2019      

As far as I’m concerned, I can say I have been so fortunate to be raised in the country where I  never ever had any soda or fizzy drinks ever and still today I have never drank any sodas of any kind.    Of course, 7-Up is great for upset tummy’s, but so is Peppermint essential oil.  I would prefer a glass of freshly-squeezed lemon juice or orange juice any time.

I remember my Dad always had one bottle of Coca-Cola in the garage, he used it on car battery to get rid of acid on car battery and once he used it on the garage cement floor to get rid of something on the floor.  Then I think that people drink this with our tender throat and tummy tissue getting that acid killing liquid in our bodies ?????   I didn’t get it.  

There’s no denial in the fact that people who drink too much Coca-Cola expose themselves to all manner of nasty diseases such as leukemia, thyroid cancer, morbid obesity, tooth decay, COPD, asthma, heart disease, and the list goes on and on. Still, it doesn’t mean that this type of beverage doesn’t have its uses. No, you’re not going to die if you drink a bottle of Coke every now and then, but don’t make it into a habit.

Anyway,  I did uncover   some really interesting uses for Coke.  . Coke can be used in SHTF situations. .

 

Boost the efficiency of your compost

If your compost’s not good enough for the plants with munchies, add a bottle of Coca-Cola. It will increase the acidity of the compost and, at the same time, it will give those tiny organisms all the sugar they’ll need.

Get rid of dirt and stains from the toilet

If you don’t have anything else on hand to clean the toilet bowl, try using Coca-Cola. Pour half a liter in the toilet, wait 15 minutes, then flush the toilet a couple of times. There you have it! No more stain or smudges and, best of all, you didn’t even have to scrub it.

Remove gum stuck to your hair.

You really don’t have to cut away those precious locks if get gum stuck in them. Instead, soak them in a bowl with Coca-Cola for a couple of minutes. You can now remove the gum by hand.

Set a trap for pesky bugs

There’s nothing worse than having to dodge stinging insects like wasps or bees when you’re at the picnic. Want to take your revenge on them? Try this trick. Fill a small bowl with Coke and place it as far away as possible from your picnic area. Attracted by the sweet smell, the suckers will go for the Coke and leave you alone.

Get rid of congestion fast

Yes, I know that drinking too much Coke can lead to all kinds of intestinal mishaps, but, apparently, this stuff can be used to relieve congestion. Take a pan and add one can of coke and some water. Bring to a boil, wait a couple of minutes for that stuff to cool down a notch, and serve.

Hack away windshield ice

Tired of having to wait around for the engine’s heat to melt away the ice on a windshield? Pour a bottle of Coke over it and wait to see what happens.

Make a diversionary device

If you need to get out of Dodge fast, it’s possible to create a diversionary device using a big bottle of Coke and a couple of Mentos pills. Unscrew the cap, get a couple of Mentos pills inside, put the cap back on, shake for 10 seconds, and throw.  A Coke Blast 

No more nausea

If you feel like your stomach makes a loopty loop, open a can of Coke and let it go flat. Take on a teaspoon of that stuff every hour or so, and you’ll be up and kicking in no time.

Hack away the powdery corrosion on car battery’s terminals

Tired of seeing that white and blue stuff on your battery’s terminals every time you pop open the hood? Use Coca-Cola – pour a small amount over each terminal and wait. Finally, use a clean cloth to remove the smudges.

Make a grown bolt budge

If a rusty bolt’s preventing you from opening something, pour some Coca-Cola over it to unloosen it. By the way, this beverage works wonders on rusty screws and bolts. Don’t replace the rusty ones. Instead, dunk them in a bowl filled with Coke and let them soak overnight.

No more scorch marks on pots and pans

Did I tell you how much I hate scrubbing them pans after cooking? Well, I’m going to say it a thousand times if it’s necessary. Luckily, I have discovered a secret weapon – Coke. If there are too much burn marks on your pots and pans, pour some Coke inside, and let them soak overnight. Drain, wash, rinse, and you’re done.

No more ouchie from jellyfish stings

So often people are swimming or touch a gellyfish and get stung.  The  skin feels like it is about to melt, pour some coke over the sting site. Coke’s ingredients will neutralize the poison.

Kill slugs and snails

I really don’t have anything against slugs, snail or lummoxes. However, every time I see them munching on my veggies, I go berserk. If you’re having the same problem, use some coke on them. The acid inside America’s favorite fizzy drink will make them curl and die in agony.

Remove blood from clothes

Well, this might sound a little odd, but Coke’s very useful in removing blood stains from just about any type of clothing or fabric. Just so you know.

Coca-Cola for hiccups

Again with the hiccups? If holding your breath doesn’t solve the issue gargle some ice-cold Coca-Cola for a couple of seconds. Works like a charm.

That’s it for my ways of repurposing Coca-Cola. Think anything’s missing from the list? Head to the comments section and let me know.

Testimonies

Two healed In One Family

In 2018 I received a call from a friend who told me she was just diagnosed with breast cancer.   
I gave her Pastor Jan’s breast cancer healing testimony, and the church site to watch the church service video to watch Pastor Jan’s testimony.   I also sent her information from Ty Bollinger regarding cancer cures and 3 booklets from our church bookstore on healing confessions.
 
I told her to cut out all sugar from every source in her diet, only cook from scratch with organic produce, only eat grass fed beef, free range chickens, free range chicken eggs and read labels and the little stick on white codes on produce (only purchase produce which starts with a #9, never buy if starts with a #3 or #4 as these are either GMO produce or have been sprayed with pesticides to kill insects and these pesticides get into our cells).   
 
I told her to put Frankincense oil in her water, coffee, or  tea, put a drop under her tongue each morning and evening, and to chew one  Frankincense resin chunk couple times a day like gum spitting it out after an hour or so, then each evening before bed, put one chunk of  Frankincense resin in a glass of water – and in the morning drink this water, tossing out the chunk. 
I also told her to rub Frankincense oil, Ledum oil and Lavender oil over her breasts, under arm pits and down along side of her breasts to the waist.  Do this often daily.   As she rubbed this mixture I asked her to say “I plead the blood of Jesus over these oils to go into my body and kill any cancer at the root in Jesus Name”
 
I sent her the booklet God Creative Healing by Capps and I highlighted many areas for her to speak over her body.
 
The one she used the most was  …     HEY Cancer, you listen to me, you have no home in my body and you must go now in the Name of Jesus…
 
She had follow up appointment with her doctor who was going to set her up for lumpectomy or possible mastectomy.    Radiology redid the ultra sound and the tumors had shrunk half in size from previous scan when first diagnosed.    Of course, the doctor was confused but pleased.  So decided to recheck her in 2 months.  She returned and there were only 2 nodules left which were smaller than before.
 
Upon repeat Ultra sound and recheck in April 2019 there were no tumors or cancer anywhere in the breasts.     Doctor was totally confused and surprised.  He asked her what she had been doing, she said she just shrugged her shoulders and said she went all natural.
 
In the middle of this going on in her body, her husband went in for his yearly employment physical.   He was found to have lung cancer.   She called me and I told her to do exactly the same thing for him, only to rub the same combination of oils all over the front of his torso and all over his back over both lungs several times a day.   And to pray over the oils as she rubbed them in.
 
He went for recheck in 2 months and the lung tumors were smaller, but still as many as previously.    He returned 2 months later (refusing chemo) and the number of tumors were reduced not only in number of tumors but in their size.  He had ultra sound done 6 months after diagnosis and there were only 2 tiny nodules left which were very small.   This pulmonology doctor was totally confused what was going on.  Said he wanted to recheck him again in 2 months time.  

 

When her  husband went in for this recheck there were no tumors left and the lungs were totally clear and healed.     This doctor pressed them asking what they did because this is impossible.     

She told the doctor that God can do the impossible and they went all natural.

I just received a thank you note in the mail from her where she said that they have two very confused and surprised doctors that can’t figure them out 
 
They are so thankful for Pastor Jan’s testimony which  they watched over and over while going through this, and for the  teaching of how to use God’s Word, the oils, the correct way to eat and friends to share with them.    They now can spread their good news to others.  God gets the GLORY for these two healings.   

 

OUR GOD IS SO GOOD !

Time to wash the winter dirt off our screens and windows. Vinegar makes such a wonderful window wash, smells good and cuts dirt and grease. I found by accident the best way to wipe off windows, mirrors and glass after washing them – coffee filters. They are absolutely the best window wipers. I had purchased the wrong size coffee filters and I was out of paper towels so grapped a couple coffee filters to wipe off a mirror and it just sparkled. Then I tried it on our glass top table and a sliding glass doors, more sparkling clean glass.
It just is one of the spring jobs that really isn’t fun, so put on your favorite music to help enjoy this job that needs to be done so we can enjoy seeing the tulips and spring bulbs flowering all around.

As the pollen season is upon us again this spring, remember to get local raw honey – take 2 tablespoons each morning in warm tea or coffee, and 2 tablespoons in evening. Raw local honey will stop allergens and symptoms of allergies. God’s medicine for us
Each morning mix 2 tablespoons of raw local honey. Suggestion: Mix 2 Tablespoons local raw honey, 1-2 tablespoons ground cinnamon to morning warm or hot tea/coffee and drink. Repeat at supper time. I mix the honey and cinnamon in 1/2 cup of warm tea in nutribullet and blend it then add to my tea or warm beverage.
In Florida we had pine pollen that was so strong everything was covered with rust colored pollen, eyes itchy, watery, and red, nose runny. Then after 3weeks pine pollen time over just in time for oak pollen and cypress pollen. The white ibis birds in our back yard were covered with the rust colored pollen too. It was everywhere. Honey stopped all symptoms. We were not bothered by it, but our neighbors were just miserable and they were so excited to find natural cure and not have to be on expensive and unsafe chemical antihistamines.

Here are some wonderful suggesions for essential oil from Mama Z, ( Dr Eric ad Sabrina Zelinski)
I pray all will be in abundant health and enjoy God’s medicines just for us.

Two years ago I had 3 months of extreme itching between fingers – so bad that I even resorted to using a very rough kitchen dish scrubbing brush and rough scrub pads hoping to open the skin and have pain which would be better than the constant itching. The itching moved to under the arm pits and inner thighs. It was a timed event, always between 3 and 4am, and 5:30-6:30pm and 9-10pm. One Sunday it started at 5:30am and it lasted the entire day with no relief until 9pm
I tried all sorts of treatments with a holistic practitioner’s help, no relief. This went on two winters.
Then I read this article last year about Gluten sensitivity. BINGO. What I was doing was eating homemade Raisin Bran muffins which were Oh So Good. I would have one at breakfast, for snack or even a bowl of cereal and a bran muffin for supper. I was filling my body with tons of gluten. When I investigated what it the bran and four was doing to my body it made me aware of way I had to stay off gluten. And in the Bible wheat was their staple food source, but remember wheat 2000 years ago is entirely different than the chemical laden GMO wheat, barley and rye we have today.

Once I eliminated glutens the itching stopped and never returned.

What happens with anyone fighting thyroid or Hashimoto’s is that the immune system recognizes the gluten (from wheat, bran, rye in any form) and attacks the gluten to absorb and kill it. Then the immune system recognizes more gluten, actually a very large collection of gluten up in the neck area. Well it isn’t gluten, it is the thyroid gland.
Gluten mimics the thyroid gland and is an exact carbon copy of the thyroid gland, it is such a perfect copy that the immune system thinks it is more gluten and attacks it to kill it. Thus the thyroid gland is attacked until our own immune system actually kills the thyroid gland.

This is why it is so important to stay away from gluten. There are some wonderful elbow noodles, spaghetti noodles, rice noodles, coconut flour (cautiously use so no detox) rice flour, almond meal, etc

I have signed up for a series presented by Dr Eric Zelinski and his wife Sabrina regarind gluten free cooking and I am hoping that her cook book will contain many recipes that I can make to test flavor and share with all of you later on.

It is not difficult at all to change to gluten free eating. Just a change in way we think about having a sandwich for lunch made with bread and using lettuce leaf, or ingredients put in a scooped out tomato, or on lettuce like a cold salad. I also roll up turkey slices with a slice of cheese, onion and cranberry sauce like a turkey roll up and just eat it plain. Knowing it is good for me, actually it was not hard to change.
I love a nice hamburger topped with tomato, cheese and onion slice – and just eat with a knife and fork – or put the hamburger on top of a bed of lettuce.

I do miss my raisin bran muffins and homemade baking powder biscuits, but knowing gluten will cause my immune system kill my thyroid gland, the diet change is ok.

As with any changes, always start slowly so you can adjust
Besides what it did to my body, my mother fought Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and she had no knowledge that her eating Catherine Clark’s Brownberry wheat bread at every meal was allowing her immune system attack and kill her thyroid gland. This put extreme stress on her heart after her thyroid gland was destroyed and doctors back then did not, and even today, do not understand he importance of food and our bodies.

Here is the article I wish to share with you now………

What Does Gluten Do to Your Body?
A major caveat linked to gluten is its tendency to impede proper nutrient breakdown and absorption from foods, regardless if they have gluten or not. This may prevent proper digestion because excess gluten leads to the formation of a glued-together constipating lump in the gut.
Afterward, the undigested gluten prompts the immune system to attack the villi, or the fingerlike projections lining your small intestine.1 This may lead to side effects such as diarrhea or constipation, nausea and abdominal pain.
Excessive gluten consumption and further small intestine damage and inflammation may predispose a person to nutrient malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies, anemia, osteoporosis, other neurological or psychological diseases, and complications linked to the skin, liver, joints, nervous system and more.

Common Signs of a ‘Gluten Allergy’ You Should Watch Out For
Consuming too much gluten can prompt various complications, such as a gluten allergy, wherein the immune system produces “weapons” to combat gluten in your system. However, a gluten allergy is not to be confused with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity16 or celiac disease.17
It is quite similar to other food allergies, since these are all responses to a particular allergen. Some of the most common gluten allergy symptoms are:
Coughing
Nasal congestion
Sneezing
Tightness of throat
Asthma
Tingling
Itching
Tongue and/or throat swelling
A metallic taste in your mouth
Abdominal pain
Muscle spasms
Vomiting
Diarrhea
As the book “Gluten-Free Cooking for Dummies” further highlights, a gluten allergy may lead to adverse effects such as anaphylaxis or an anaphylactic shock that may affect different organs. People may experience agitation, hives, breathing problems, reduced blood pressure levels, fainting or even death, if the reaction is very severe.18

Warning Signs of Gluten Intolerance
Should the immune system have an unusual response to gluten in your system, then it might be a sign that you have gluten intolerance.19 Sometimes it can be mistaken for celiac disease (another gluten-related disorder) or a wheat allergy.20 The root cause of a gluten intolerance is not fully understood, although it has been linked to the digestive system, compared to celiac disease where a genetic link has been found.21
Typical gluten intolerance symptoms include bloating, belly pain, diarrhea, tiredness and a general feeling of being unwell. Someone with a gluten intolerance might also experience these indicators, although these are less frequent and already affect areas beyond the gut:
Joint or muscle pain
Anxiety
Headache
Nausea
Confusion
Numbness
If you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. This will help you determine whether you have gluten intolerance or if the symptoms occur because of other health reasons. This greatly applies if you or someone you know has severe belly pain. An extreme stomachache is not a sign of gluten intolerance, so it might be due to another potentially devastating disease that may require immediate treatment.
Having gut-related symptoms checked immediately may be helpful too, as numerous conditions that target the gut can overlap with other diseases. Fortunately, these can be examined during a checkup and your doctor may rule out other causes. Take note that symptoms of gluten intolerance are generally similar to those of celiac disease, although the reactions that people with these conditions experience aren’t identical.
To diagnose a gluten intolerance, it’s important that you continue eating your usual meals, especially if it’s abundant in foods with gluten. This could help the doctor determine the main cause of the symptoms. An inaccurate diagnosis might occur if the patient decides to stop eating gluten-loaded foods prior to, or during, a consultation.22

Common Indicators of Gluten Sensitivity
In various studies, gluten sensitivity is also called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) as celiac disease patients are sensitive to gluten too. The difference between a gluten sensitivity and celiac disease is that the former may be triggered not just by wheat, but by other grains like rye and barley, too, as these grains are known to have the glutenin and gliadin proteins (or protein fragments) also found in wheat.23
Typical symptoms of gluten sensitivity include nausea, skin irritation, bloating and gas, brain fog, and fatigue. However, these indicators can widely vary and may also occur alongside gynecologic conditions, lactose intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome.24
Because there is no specific laboratory test for gluten sensitivity, your physician will have to rule out other possible causes. In some cases, patients may need to be checked for wheat allergy or celiac disease. Should test results be negative, a gluten-free diet may be advised.25 However, if any of the aforementioned tests deliver positive results, then you may want to continue eating gluten-rich foods for a more accurate diagnosis.26

Why a Gluten-Free Diet Works
A gluten-free diet is an important course of action for combating gluten-related disorders, and picking gluten-free foods is the first step in doing so. Because there are foods that are incorrectly labeled “gluten-free,” it may be quite tricky at first to select the correct items.
A set of guidelines on proper gluten-free labeling standards released in 2013 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may help. The organization states that for a food product to bear the gluten-free label and be considered such, it must be:
Naturally gluten-free — Rice, non-GMO corn, quinoa, sorghum, flax and amaranth seed are naturally gluten-free grains.
Refined to remove gluten — Gluten must be removed from any gluten-containing grain. As such, the final product should not contain more than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten.
Extreme vigilance is only likely if you have celiac disease, since exposure to gluten can cause sickness and threaten your health in the long run. What’s great about a gluten-free diet is that nearly everyone can benefit from it, whether you have a gluten intolerance or not. Grains, even whole sprouted varieties, tend to cause many problems because of the following factors:
Wheat hybridization
Gluten
Other wheat proteins
Fructans
Milling or baking process
Glyphosate contamination
Grains have high net carbs, so removing them from your diet can help improve mitochondrial function. Taking care of your mitochondrial health is important if you want to reduce your risk for problems linked to insulin resistance, such as being overweight and having high blood pressure levels, as well as diseases like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Prior to beginning a gluten-free diet, consult a dietitian or health expert who can give advice on how to effectively avoid foods with gluten while eating a healthy and balanced diet.27

Best Foods to Eat if Following a Gluten-Free Diet
Once you’re given the go-signal to try a gluten-free diet, stock up on these natural and unprocessed foods:28,29
Beans (provided that you try to sprout and/or ferment your beans to reduce its lectin content, which may negatively impact your health in the long run)
Seeds (chia, pumpkin or sunflower)
Nuts (pecans, macadamias or walnuts)
Organic and pasture-raised eggs
Organic and grass fed meats that aren’t breaded, batter-coated or marinated
Fish (wild-caught Alaskan salmon, sardines, anchovies and herring) that aren’t breaded, batter-coated or marinated
Organically grown, GMO-free fruits and vegetables
Raw, grass fed milk or yogurt
Healthy fat sources (raw grass fed butter, coconuts and coconut oil, olives and olive oil, and avocados)
If you think going on a gluten-free diet limits eating choices and preparations, you’d be surprised to know that it won’t. Type “gluten-free recipes” on a search engine and you’ll see a wide variety of gluten-free recipes, ranging from savory to sweet. A good and delicious example is this Coconut Flour Almond Meal Pancakes Recipe from MindBodyGreen:30

Additional Reminders When Following a Gluten-Free Diet
Gluten Free & More magazine highlights these important tips for people who are following a gluten-free diet:31
Read labels carefully — Knowing how to read labels properly will greatly help if you’re following a gluten-free diet. Ideally, never assume something is gluten-free even if the word “gluten” isn’t anywhere in the list.32 As mentioned earlier, some manufacturers purposely use other names to hide gluten in their products.
If you’re in doubt, don’t buy the product — If you cannot verify that the product is free of grains, don’t buy or eat it at all. The same principle applies if you cannot find an ingredients list on the product.
Remember that being wheat-free doesn’t automatically make a food gluten-free — This is because spelt, rye or barley-based ingredients, all of which contain gluten, may be used in products with a wheat-free label on them.
Introduce new foods slowly — Ensure that you incorporate only one new food at a time, and take note of symptoms before adding another item.
Be a “food detective” — Call, email or write a letter to a food manufacturer to verify a product’s ingredients. Take note of the ingredient and the lot number of the food. Once you are in touch with a representative, clearly state your concerns and be persistent, polite and patient.
What Are the Types of Food That Contain Gluten?
Gluten is predominantly found in whole grains like rye, barley, triticale and oats; in wheat varieties like spelt, kamut, farro, durum; and in other products like bulgar and semolina.2 Wheat-based flours and byproducts that also contain high quantities of this protein include:3,4,5,6
Wheat-Based Flours
Wheat Byproducts
White flour

Pasta

Whole wheat flour

Couscous

Graham flour

Bread, bread crumbs and croutons

Triticale

Flour tortillas

Wheat germ

Cookies, cakes, muffins and pastries

Wheat bran

Cereal

Crackers

Beer

Gravy, dressings and sauces

Conventional oats (these have a high chance of being contaminated during the growing, harvesting or processing stages

If there’s another compelling reason why you shouldn’t eat processed foods, it’s because these items often contain gluten. Here are examples of foods with gluten, even though they’re not made from grains:7,8
Processed broth and bouillon cubes9
Fried foods
Candies
Lunch meats and hot dogs
Cold cuts
Dumplings
Self-basting poultry
Crab cakes
Imitation fish
Seasoned rice10
Matzo
Modified food starch11

Malts
Starches and other derivatives
Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
Hydrolyzed wheat protein15
Textured vegetable protein (TVP)

Two years ago I had 3 months of extreme itching between fingers – so bad that I even resorted to using a very rough kitchen dish scrubbing brush and rough scrub pads hoping to open the skin and have pain which would be better than the constant itching. The itching moved to under the arm pits and inner thighs. It was a timed event, always between 3 and 4am, and 5:30-6:30pm and 9-10pm. One Sunday it started at 5:30am and it lasted the entire day with no relief until 9pm
I tried all sorts of treatments with a holistic practitioner’s help, no relief. This went on two winters.
Then I read this article last year about Gluten sensitivity. BINGO. What I was doing was eating homemade Raisin Bran muffins which were Oh So Good. I would have one at breakfast, for snack or even a bowl of cereal and a bran muffin for supper. I was filling my body with tons of gluten. When I investigated what it the bran and four was doing to my body it made me aware of way I had to stay off gluten. And in the Bible wheat was their staple food source, but remember wheat 2000 years ago is entirely different than the chemical laden GMO wheat, barley and rye we have today.

Once I eliminated glutens the itching stopped and never returned.

What happens with anyone fighting thyroid or Hashimoto’s is that the immune system recognizes the gluten (from wheat, bran, rye in any form) and attacks the gluten to absorb and kill it. Then the immune system recognizes more gluten, actually a very large collection of gluten up in the neck area. Well it isn’t gluten, it is the thyroid gland.
Gluten mimics the thyroid gland and is an exact carbon copy of the thyroid gland, it is such a perfect copy that the immune system thinks it is more gluten and attacks it to kill it. Thus the thyroid gland is attacked until our own immune system actually kills the thyroid gland.

This is why it is so important to stay away from gluten. There are some wonderful elbow noodles, spaghetti noodles, rice noodles, coconut flour (cautiously use so no detox) rice flour, almond meal, etc

I have signed up for a series presented by Dr Eric Zelinski and his wife Sabrina regarind gluten free cooking and I am hoping that her cook book will contain many recipes that I can make to test flavor and share with all of you later on.

It is not difficult at all to change to gluten free eating. Just a change in way we think about having a sandwich for lunch made with bread and using lettuce leaf, or ingredients put in a scooped out tomato, or on lettuce like a cold salad. I also roll up turkey slices with a slice of cheese, onion and cranberry sauce like a turkey roll up and just eat it plain. Knowing it is good for me, actually it was not hard to change.
I love a nice hamburger topped with tomato, cheese and onion slice – and just eat with a knife and fork – or put the hamburger on top of a bed of lettuce.

I do miss my raisin bran muffins and homemade baking powder biscuits, but knowing gluten will cause my immune system kill my thyroid gland, the diet change is ok.

As with any changes, always start slowly so you can adjust
Besides what it did to my body, my mother fought Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and she had no knowledge that her eating Catherine Clark’s Brownberry wheat bread at every meal was allowing her immune system attack and kill her thyroid gland. This put extreme stress on her heart after her thyroid gland was destroyed and doctors back then did not, and even today, do not understand he importance of food and our bodies.

Here is the article I wish to share with you now………

What Does Gluten Do to Your Body?
A major caveat linked to gluten is its tendency to impede proper nutrient breakdown and absorption from foods, regardless if they have gluten or not. This may prevent proper digestion because excess gluten leads to the formation of a glued-together constipating lump in the gut.
Afterward, the undigested gluten prompts the immune system to attack the villi, or the fingerlike projections lining your small intestine.1 This may lead to side effects such as diarrhea or constipation, nausea and abdominal pain.
Excessive gluten consumption and further small intestine damage and inflammation may predispose a person to nutrient malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies, anemia, osteoporosis, other neurological or psychological diseases, and complications linked to the skin, liver, joints, nervous system and more.

Common Signs of a ‘Gluten Allergy’ You Should Watch Out For
Consuming too much gluten can prompt various complications, such as a gluten allergy, wherein the immune system produces “weapons” to combat gluten in your system. However, a gluten allergy is not to be confused with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity16 or celiac disease.17
It is quite similar to other food allergies, since these are all responses to a particular allergen. Some of the most common gluten allergy symptoms are:
Coughing
Nasal congestion
Sneezing
Tightness of throat
Asthma
Tingling
Itching
Tongue and/or throat swelling
A metallic taste in your mouth
Abdominal pain
Muscle spasms
Vomiting
Diarrhea
As the book “Gluten-Free Cooking for Dummies” further highlights, a gluten allergy may lead to adverse effects such as anaphylaxis or an anaphylactic shock that may affect different organs. People may experience agitation, hives, breathing problems, reduced blood pressure levels, fainting or even death, if the reaction is very severe.18

Warning Signs of Gluten Intolerance
Should the immune system have an unusual response to gluten in your system, then it might be a sign that you have gluten intolerance.19 Sometimes it can be mistaken for celiac disease (another gluten-related disorder) or a wheat allergy.20 The root cause of a gluten intolerance is not fully understood, although it has been linked to the digestive system, compared to celiac disease where a genetic link has been found.21
Typical gluten intolerance symptoms include bloating, belly pain, diarrhea, tiredness and a general feeling of being unwell. Someone with a gluten intolerance might also experience these indicators, although these are less frequent and already affect areas beyond the gut:
Joint or muscle pain
Anxiety
Headache
Nausea
Confusion
Numbness
If you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. This will help you determine whether you have gluten intolerance or if the symptoms occur because of other health reasons. This greatly applies if you or someone you know has severe belly pain. An extreme stomachache is not a sign of gluten intolerance, so it might be due to another potentially devastating disease that may require immediate treatment.
Having gut-related symptoms checked immediately may be helpful too, as numerous conditions that target the gut can overlap with other diseases. Fortunately, these can be examined during a checkup and your doctor may rule out other causes. Take note that symptoms of gluten intolerance are generally similar to those of celiac disease, although the reactions that people with these conditions experience aren’t identical.
To diagnose a gluten intolerance, it’s important that you continue eating your usual meals, especially if it’s abundant in foods with gluten. This could help the doctor determine the main cause of the symptoms. An inaccurate diagnosis might occur if the patient decides to stop eating gluten-loaded foods prior to, or during, a consultation.22

Common Indicators of Gluten Sensitivity
In various studies, gluten sensitivity is also called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) as celiac disease patients are sensitive to gluten too. The difference between a gluten sensitivity and celiac disease is that the former may be triggered not just by wheat, but by other grains like rye and barley, too, as these grains are known to have the glutenin and gliadin proteins (or protein fragments) also found in wheat.23
Typical symptoms of gluten sensitivity include nausea, skin irritation, bloating and gas, brain fog, and fatigue. However, these indicators can widely vary and may also occur alongside gynecologic conditions, lactose intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome.24
Because there is no specific laboratory test for gluten sensitivity, your physician will have to rule out other possible causes. In some cases, patients may need to be checked for wheat allergy or celiac disease. Should test results be negative, a gluten-free diet may be advised.25 However, if any of the aforementioned tests deliver positive results, then you may want to continue eating gluten-rich foods for a more accurate diagnosis.26

Why a Gluten-Free Diet Works
A gluten-free diet is an important course of action for combating gluten-related disorders, and picking gluten-free foods is the first step in doing so. Because there are foods that are incorrectly labeled “gluten-free,” it may be quite tricky at first to select the correct items.
A set of guidelines on proper gluten-free labeling standards released in 2013 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may help. The organization states that for a food product to bear the gluten-free label and be considered such, it must be:
Naturally gluten-free — Rice, non-GMO corn, quinoa, sorghum, flax and amaranth seed are naturally gluten-free grains.
Refined to remove gluten — Gluten must be removed from any gluten-containing grain. As such, the final product should not contain more than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten.
Extreme vigilance is only likely if you have celiac disease, since exposure to gluten can cause sickness and threaten your health in the long run. What’s great about a gluten-free diet is that nearly everyone can benefit from it, whether you have a gluten intolerance or not. Grains, even whole sprouted varieties, tend to cause many problems because of the following factors:
Wheat hybridization
Gluten
Other wheat proteins
Fructans
Milling or baking process
Glyphosate contamination
Grains have high net carbs, so removing them from your diet can help improve mitochondrial function. Taking care of your mitochondrial health is important if you want to reduce your risk for problems linked to insulin resistance, such as being overweight and having high blood pressure levels, as well as diseases like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Prior to beginning a gluten-free diet, consult a dietitian or health expert who can give advice on how to effectively avoid foods with gluten while eating a healthy and balanced diet.27

Do we really know what chemicals are in our foods? We need to know, become aware, alert and share this knowledge with others. That is why it is so important to only buy organic oatmeal or grains.
Read the label on breads and rolls, most ingredients cannot be pronounced and never found in our kitchens. This is why homemade is so important and only using organic ingredients.

Does this chemical in your Cheerios or oatmeal cause Cancer?

By: Cat Ebeling, co-author of the best-sellers: The Fat Burning Kitchen, The Top 101 Foods that Fight Aging & The Diabetes Fix
Your kids’ favorite oat cereals, oatmeal, granola and snack bars come with a heavy dose of the weed-killing poison glyphosate. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s well-known weed-killer, “Roundup”.
Monsanto made big news recently, as a result of losing a $289-million-dollar lawsuit brought by a school groundskeeper who claims that glyphosate caused his deadly lymphoma cancer.
Bayer said the number of outstanding lawsuits against has risen from 5,200 to 8,000. The German firm’s shares have lost 11% of their value since it lost the $289m case in a California court to groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who claimed Monsanto herbicides containing glyphosate had caused his Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Bayer shares fell another 1.7% on Thursday.
In a new class action lawsuit filed against the cereal/food giant General Mills less than a week after the Johnson vs Monsanto verdict, plaintiff Mounira Doss states that General Mills had a duty to disclose the presence of glyphosate in their Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal but failed to do so. Cheerios levels of glyphosate at 470-530 parts per billion (ppb) are some of the highest levels present in any of the tested foods. Doss states that “General Mills failed to disclose or actively concealed information reasonable consumers need to know before purchasing [Cheerios], and knew or should have known that Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios contained glyphosate, but withheld this information from consumers and the general public.”
This means that General Mills may be in violation of several state consumer protection laws. Says Steve Gardner, legal consultant at Gardner Consulting, and former head of the food law practice at the Stanley Law Group, “In the wake of the $289m Monsanto damages award, we expect to see plaintiffs’ attorneys target products containing glyphosate, even in trace amounts…”
Independent laboratory testing ordered by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), shows heavy doses of glyphosate in almost all of 45 samples of cereal and snack products made with conventionally-grown oats (non-organic). What’s even scarier is that 75% of those samples had higher levels of glyphosate that what is considered acceptable and safe. And, if you think you are safe from glyphosate because you are only buying organic, consider that 30% of cereals and snacks tested from organically-grown grains also had glyphosate.
Another lab, Anresco, a U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) registered lab, using one of the most reliable tests for glyphosate residues, tested thirty foods commonly found in grocery stores. Their findings were also consistent with EWG’s findings.
Some of the highest glyphosate residue was found in General Mills Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios, Stacy’s Pita crackers, Ritz crackers, Lucy’s oatmeal cookies, Kashi dark chocolate soft baked cookies, Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies, and Oreos, and dozens of other so-called ‘healthy’ cereals and snacks. See the full report here.
“Frankly, such a high level of glyphosate contamination found in Cheerios, Doritos, Oreos…is alarming and should be a wake-up call for any parent trying to feed their children safe, healthy and non-toxic food,” Dave Murphy, executive director of Food Democracy Now!,” said.
The EPA sets a “maximum residue limit” (MRL), also known as a tolerance, for pesticide residues on food like corn and soybeans. MRLs for glyphosate vary depending upon the commodity.
Farmers often have trouble getting their grain crops like corn, wheat and barley to dry out quickly for harvest, especially in wetter climates. So, the Big Ag chemical companies came up with the idea to douse the crops with glyphosate one to two weeks before harvest to kill the plants and accelerate the grain dry-out. This pre-harvest use of glyphosate allows farmers to harvest crops as much as two weeks earlier than they normally would.
Crop desiccation with glyphosate is a very common practice, and farmers use massive amounts of glyphosate on non-GMO crops such as wheat, oats, soybeans, corn and other crops right before harvest.
Along with wheat and oats, glyphosate is used to desiccate a variety of other crops including peanuts, lentils, peas, soybeans, flax, rye, triticale, buckwheat, millet, canola, sugar beets and potatoes. These food products are essentially drenched with glyphosate just a couple weeks prior to harvest, meaning even higher levels of glyphosate once these crops are harvested.
According to the EPA, glyphosate in used in the U.S. on at least 70 different food crops, including grains, spinach, avocados, almonds, walnuts, figs, plums, grapes, kiwi, lemons, grapefruit, pistachios, and pomegranates. Check out the full list here. The widespread usage of glyphosate makes it nearly impossible to avoid, and sample testing shows 93% of us test positive for glyphosate in our bodies.
Glyphosate’s Connection to Serious Health Issues
Recent studies show glyphosate is not only a dangerous chemical that has invaded our entire food system, but it has been linked to autism, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, serious food allergies (including celiac disease), Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, obesity, reproductive issues, and liver problems. And children bodies are even more susceptible to the damage from glyphosate.
Scientists around the world have been reviewing negative research concerning glyphosate, and it has been under even more serious scrutiny since the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified the herbicide as a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015.
In addition, the IARC also stated, “Glyphosate also causes DNA and chromosomal
damage in human cells.” Seventeen leading global cancer experts from the IARC classified glyphosate as a class 2A “probable human carcinogen”.
Glyphosate Damages Gut Bacteria and Blocks Vital Nutrients
Gut Bacteria—This recent study shows glyphosate’s connection to the disruption of key gut bacteria, impairing enzymes that are key to detoxifying the body and causing deficiencies in vitamins A and D3, and impairing the body’s ability to produce bile, a key substance in digestion of fats. And, glyphosate is now known to cause extreme disruptions in important beneficial microbes in our digestive tract, allowing overgrowth of harmful pathogens.
Vitamin, Mineral and Amino acid Deficiencies–Glyphosate also binds with iron, cobalt, molybdenum, copper and other vital minerals in the body, creating serious deficiencies. Additionally, glyphosate interferes with the activation of vitamin D in the liver by inhibiting the cytochrome P450 enzymes, creating a host of other problems related to vitamin D deficiency.
Increase in Food Allergies–Scientists say that gluten binds to glyphosate in the digestive system, creating a highly allergenic substance that people react to. This same thing applies to corn, soy, nuts, and peanuts sprayed with glyphosate. The very action of spraying crops with glyphosate creates a highly allergenic substance, one of the big reasons that kids have become so allergic to many foods including peanuts.
Link to Anxiety and Depression–Glyphosate disrupts a critical pathway in plants as well, destroying three of their essential amino acids which help our bodies create serotonin. Serotonin deficiencies lead to anxiety, depression, violent behavior, and other mental illnesses. And, glyphosate is now known to cause extreme disruptions in important beneficial microbes in our digestive tract, allowing overgrowth of harmful pathogens
Thyroid Problems–Glyphosate also depletes the body of tyrosine, an essential nutrient needed proper thyroid hormone. As a consequence, thyroid issues are increasing as well—often manifesting as hypothyroid problems, or autoimmune Hashimoto thyroid conditions.
How to Avoid Glyphosate
No matter how healthy and ‘clean’ your family’s diet may be, this pervasive chemical is extremely difficult to avoid! It is used on most all conventional crops, and its residues are in water run-off, streams, lakes, and rain. It is also carried through the air, so that even 100% organic foods now show traces of glyphosate.
Things you can do to avoid or minimize yours and your children’s glyphosate exposure:
• If you choose to eat grains and legumes at all (which many people avoid if they follow a Paleo style diet), make sure to choose organic grains and legumes. Eating an organic diet for 1 week reduces pesticide exposure in the diet by 90%.
• Avoid eating conventional grains and processed foods.
• Eat meat, poultry, eggs, butter and dairy products only from 100% grass fed or organically fed animals.
• Eat sulfur rich foods like eggs, organic cheese, onions and garlic. Glyphosate exposure in the body depletes sulfur and also effects sulfate pathways.
• Eat fermented foods and probiotics. Especially important are fermented foods with a live culture of acetobacter. This includes organic apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, cheeses and yogurt.
• Supplement with glutathione and manganese—two nutrients glyphosate depletes.
• Get plenty of sun so your body can make vitamin D, or supplement with D3 if you’re not getting adequate sunshine on your skin.

A quick email to all of you with a couple Christmas ideas in case you are looking for some hints.
 
I am sure most of you have already heard the reports of Johnson & Johnson companies baby powder having been found to have asbestos in the ingredients.    About 2008 Linda presented  the dangers of baby powder to one of our Health and Wellness classes.
This is why it is so important to go back and check your notes, or look up the CD’s you bought from the sessions and be aware of ingredients.   Mennen company also was found to have put in chemicals that were dangerous for fragile baby skin.
 
We have been so blessed with past Health and Wellness classes we attended and learned from – and as soon as I heard the report  I knew immediately what Linda had taught us.   Thank God for all of the past classes where we learned so much.
 
Have a blesses Christmas, enjoy your family, reach out to others who may need to know they are remembered as this can be a difficult holiday for those alone.
 
 

Homemade Peppermint Patties

Seriously guys– if you are even just slightly enjoy York® peppermint patties, you must try this healthy peppermint patty recipe I’m sharing with you today. You MUST. When I say healthy, I’m referring to the fact they use honey and coconut oil in the filling, instead of powdered sugar and corn syrup like most homemade peppermint patties. But the crazy part? YOU CAN’T TELL. —->

Winter is here. This means flu and cold season is upon more of us. I often ask people “What’s your favorite ingredient in vaccines?” No one has answered that as no one has a favorite if they know what’s in them. Truth is, most don’t know what’s being injected into their body. Consider doing research on the ingredients. Once you find out, then ask yourself if you want that to become a part of you. We are hearing more and more about people falling ill and even dying after receiving flu shots. Be kind to you. There is mounds of evidence that Organic Oil of Oregano kills flu viruses.Fall and Winter also means less sun for most of us and less exposure means less Vitamin D. One of the best sources for Vitamin D is Rose Hips. It’s jam packed full of the vitamin. I make a yummy tea with it during the winter months. One can purchase it at eBay or if you’re lucky one can find it at the local health food store.

 

 

Mix ½ dish soap with ½ vinegar for a safer for your skin dish soap. The vinegar also kills bacteria.

Apricot Seeds contain the most B-17 of all plant matter on Earth. Eating 2-3 Raw Apricot Seeds should take care of the Vitamin B-17 deficiency. I consume 1 in the morning and 1 at night. If one wants to eat more, consult a naturopath, homeopathic physician, kinesiologist or physician of choice on the subject. Eating six to ten seeds daily is a common amount.   But remember to never over consume apricot seeds, always start with a small amount and slowly increase that amount until you get to about 6, but 6 is a really large amount to take into the body.  I would suggest chewing no more than 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening so you do not overdo it.    Also, Apricot seeds attack cancer cells in the human body.  They can be bought on Amazon, eBay, and other places too, including health food stores.  Look for organic if possible.

 
Order Oregano essential oil, you can diffuse it, put it into your salad dressings, add it to pizza or spaghetti sauce (3 drops is usually enough).   It can be put on bread cubes and chewed up, but remember it is a strong oil and we need to get use to it before taking it internally straight without being in an oil like grapdeseed oil or olive oil.I  mix it into my spaghetti sauce and my Italian salad dressings, even a drop or two on scrambled eggs are good.
Oregano oil also kills typhoid bacteria, Staph, flu, strep, E-Coli and any ill effects from bad lettuce.
Remember many people are handling our produce with out proper cleansing.  I noticed hospital workers not washing their hands when coming into my son’s hospital room to touch him.   I do not know where there hands were previously or what patient they were working on before.    My husband in 2004 was given a hospital acquired Staph infection during bunion surgery.   Someone did not wash their hands properly and cross contaminated his body with a Staph infection that eventually caused him to have his left great toe and metatarsal bone amputated.
 
I also have added oregano oil to my Thieves hand sanitizer bottle.    You can carefully sniff the oregano essential oil, this also gets the oil into our system.  Our brain knows where to send this oil to work.   This oil and the other oils are a gift to us from God.
 
I know Pastor Jan carries oregano flakes in a spice bottle when she goes out to eat to add to her food, this is so wise.   It is not as powerful a flavor as the oil, but still the same effect on the system.
 
Take care of ourselves naturally not chemically this fall and winter.

I wanted to share a variety of videos for all of us to view and become more aware and informed.    These were from NaturalNews and some of these may be of interest to you.
 
Be joyful and healthy as we prepare for the upcoming fun Christmas Season.   Remember to wash your hands often, get plenty of sleep, eat healthy foods and stay away from sugar which pulls immune system down and also feeds caner like gasoline to a fire.  
 
About ten years ago at our Christmas family gathering, I handed out each grandchild envelopet.  When they opened the envelope and saw the $20 bill their eyes lit up.   Inside I had a typed note to them, that they were to take that $20 bill and share it with someone.   They could cash it and share $5 with four others or share $10 with two others or one person the $20.  It was up to them.   They did not need to tell each other or anyone else.  It was for them to bless others.    Often today they will remind me of that special Christmas and how they remembered that I told them this is the true meaning of Christmas because God gifted us His Only Son just for us.  
  
Do something simple, but special this Christmas with your families – then email me at jeffanddixien@gmail.com so I can share the stories in a January newsletter.

Unfortunately, this is NOT a joke.   We need to be aware and alert – and we need to share this article with others.
I am still amazed at how people shop not just the regular grocery shelves, but particularly the produce areas.   No one reads the little stickers on the produce.  Those stickers are there for a reason, they are a “road map” to what the produce went through.
 
If first number is 3 then it is a GMO product, absolutely useless for the body.
 
 If the first number is 4 then it has been sprayed with pesticides that were meant to KILL insects – what about humans ??????     The skins are not thick to keep the pesticides out, so they have leaked into the meat of the fruit or vegetable.
 
If the first number begins with a 9 then you are assured that this produce has not been genetically altered with injection of a virus to kill its fertility or sprayed with pesticides – it is considered organic.
 
This article I hope will open your eyes.  Please share with others.
 
Gene editing company gets a financial boost from Monsanto.
 

gene-editing-fruits(NaturalHealth365) The biotech industry wants us to believe that gene editing technology will help to create fruits and vegetables with a longer shelf life; raspberries in luscious shades of violet and even peach-flavored strawberries.

But, will all these ‘Franken-food’ creations really be healthy for us?

Many experts warn that not enough is known about the long-term effects on health of these so-called ‘improvements’ in food production.  The mere fact that the gene editing tool is licensed by Monsanto (known as the “most hated corporation in the world”) is enough to give pause for many food safety advocates.

Today, we’ll take a closer look at this relatively new technology – and a disturbing new study that highlights potential risks.

The gene editing tool, known as CRISPR-Cas9 (an acronym for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is the product of Pairwise Plants – a California-based startup company helmed by two Harvard scientists.

In March of 2018, Monsanto invested $125 million in Pairwise, and entered into an exclusive collaboration with the company.  Unlike normal GMO technology – which inserts foreign genes within a plant’s genome – CRISPR involves deleting or changing existing genes.

The CRISPR technology revolves around a family of genes known as MYBs, which can control whether other genes are switched on or off.  Gene-editing the MYBs allows scientists to manipulate the flavors and textures of fruits, while enhancing their nutritional profile and heightening levels of beneficial phytochemicals.

For example, gene editing can result in higher amounts of antioxidant carotenoids, or of the cancer-fighting substance sulforaphane.  And, by affecting the content of anthocyanins (natural antioxidant plant pigments that give fruits and vegetables their intense hues) CRISPR can help scientists manipulate color at will.

In addition to improving aesthetic appearance and flavor, CRISPR is being touted as a way to help crops resist disease, drought and spoilage – and even prolong shelf life and season of availability.

While standard genetic modification can take years to change the genetic traits of crops, CRISPR can do it within a generation of one or two crops – causing enhanced produce to come to market much more quickly.

It all sounds pretty good so far, right?

Not so fast: Bombshell study demonstrates that Crispr-Cas9 can cause mutations

An explosive study published last May in Nature Methods reveals that CRISPR caused literally hundreds of unintended mutations in mice.

The problem came to light when researchers sequenced the animals’ genomes (their entire collection of genes), and found that two of the mice had sustained more than 1500 mutations involving the nucleotide – a small packet of DNA.

The mutations were “off-target” – meaning they occurred in unedited genes (not the genes that were edited in the first place).

Molecular geneticist and GMO expert Dr. Michael Antoniou points out even tiny changes could cause unintended effects. For example, a disruption in the function of an enzyme could lead to unpredictable biochemical reactions.

Alarmingly, computer algorithms used to screen for possible mutations failed to predict them.

And, here’s the kicker.

Three days after the announcement of the partnership between Monsanto and Pairwise, the study was officially retracted.

The editors of Nature Methods said that “multiple groups” had questioned the study’s findings – and whether they were, in fact, caused by CRISPR. (Be that as it may, the timing appears highly suspicious – to say the least!)

You can view the retracted study here.

Monsanto barrels through a gaping loophole in regulations

The USDA has ruled against enacting serious restrictions on CRISPR-modified fruits and vegetables – as long as the changes theoretically “could” have been produced through traditional plant-breeding methods.

And, obtaining the licensing for CRISPR allows Monsanto to avoid regulations associated with GMO foods. Because gene-editing doesn’t add genes – it only changes or deletes existing ones – crops edited with CRISPR aren’t considered to be technically GMOs.

Although it’s small comfort, the gene-editing technology is subject to some restrictions.  Monsanto can’t use CRISPR to “gene drive” (spread genetic traits within a whole population).

In addition, the company isn’t permitted to produce any sterile “terminator” seeds – a technique Monsanto used in the past – disgracefully – to compel farmers to purchase new seeds every year.

And, they can’t use CRISPR to modify tobacco used in smoking.  But natural health experts say these regulations are too few and far between, and that much more oversight is needed.

Experts warn: Gene editing must be regulated

GM watch, a non-profit organization that provides the public with the latest news and comments on GMOs, maintains that new genome editing should be at least as strictly regulated as any conventional genetic modification technique.

Dr. Antoniou maintains that the entire genome sequences of gene-edited organisms should be submitted to biosafety authorities – and that long-term toxicity studies should also be performed.

He also offers a chilling prediction, warning that it isn’t a question of “whether” CRISPR will cause unintended mutations to appear – but a question of “how many.”

Although Monsanto had originally predicted that gene edited produce could appear in stores within five to ten years, the technology appears on track to appear even sooner, with corn and mushrooms as the likely first versions.

Of course, the concern over gene editing represents yet another reason to stick with organic food – and bypass Franken-food completely!

One of my contacts is Bible Health Secrets where I get wonderful suggestions and hints.
 
I received information today on discovering which lab tests we should run to help guide your healing journey!
 
When we visit our family doctor for a check up, they usually run some simple lab work, but this is a suggestion which labs should really be done.    This is just a suggestion for us.     We need to have a base line to know how our body is working and lab tests give us this indication.   Doesn’t mean we need to  follow up with medications, it is just an indicator for us to know.
 
For example: Elevated white blood count can indicate that somewhere in our body we are fighting an infection.   Knowing this, we can increase water, increase vitamin C, take Zinc, increase Vitamin B’s,  drink bone broth, make garlic water (slowly simmer 5-6 cloves of garlic in water for 5 minutes, take off the burner and let sit till room temperature and then drink a glass every few hours, best antibiotic known other than colloidal silver).
Drink colloidal silver in water.
 
We need to be empowered with healthy knowledge for our bodies and our families bodies.
Strongest medicine available is praying in tongues.   There is a small section in our brain that is non-functioining, this tiny area only functions when we pray in tongues.
If you wish to see actual brain scans being done on people praying in English and then praying in tongues – see articles below by Neurologist, Dr. Carl R. Peterson
 

Medical Facts About Speaking In Tongues – Carl RPeterson …

Jun 14, 2011 · Carl PetersonM.D. worked on this study at ORU in Tulsa, Oklahoma a few years ago. Being a brain specialist he was doing research on what the relationship was between the brain and praying or speaking in tongues.

Speaking in Tongues Study – The Quickened Word

SPEAKING IN TONGUES STUDY . EFFECTS OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM . The following is a letter from Carl Peterson, MD on speaking in tongues. Christian Psychiatrist Carl R. Peterson, M.D. (Letterhead) CHRISTIAN-PSYCHIATRY SERVICES, INC. Dear friend, …

This will empower you and your body.    Praying in tongues is 200 times stronger than Morphine, it boosts the immune system, it brings peace and joy to the body and heart.
 
Here is the article from Bible Health secrets on suggested lab values.   I have done this previously and then asked for a print out of the lab work and I took it to my holistic naturopath and chiropractor for any tinctures to cover any values that need to be addressed.

Do you smell the difference in the breezes, fall is coming!

The kids are back to school and time to switch  the essential oil blends in our diffusers, hand soaps, dish soaps and sanitizers to include scents like cinnamon, cassia, ginger, nutmeg and clove.    I think my favorite is nutmeg and cinnamon running in the diffuser between now and through Thanksgiving.   Also nutmeg and clove in hot tea is truly scrumptious.   Just a drop, or a couple dips of the end of a toothpick in the oil and dipped into the hot tea or coffee.

Time to pick or buy our favorite apples, and I am sharing one of Mama Z’s gluten free Apple Crisp which sounds so delicious.

We need to read this and pass it on to others, we need to make others aware. Bayer was researcher and inventor of Fluoride which was used in Germany against the Jewish people, making them complacent and “zombie” like walking into the showers, they are dumbing us down through our faucet tap water and bottled water, need to find artesian wells and get our own safe water
 

MURDER BY CALCIFICATION
PART TWO – HIGH TREASON
NOTICE – This is a factual story of the true causes of 100 illnesses hidden by the FDA and the Socialists in the USA Inc. Government to kill millions of people, no matter their age, sex, gender or political party.
Part One: https://operationdisclosure.blogspot.com/2018/09/murder-by-calcification.htmlThe history of EDTA (Calcium DiSodium) goes back since about 1933. The Germans found out that Edta removes all the LEAD from the body, blood, organs, brain etc. of their mine and ship building workers.

They also found out that other heavy metal poisons were also removed and that other chemical toxins that attached or bound themselves to Edta were eliminated at the same time and greatly improved the health and wellbeing of all workers.

Just about when the collectivists discovered how to mass murder the people, they formed the Executive Order 6102 to take us off the gold standard and put us under FIAT currency.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_6102The bad guys (socialists) in our own government found out that heavy metal poisons were just the right things to further their depopulation agenda. They found out that combining one poison to many other heavy metal poisons became even more deadly.

So gradually each time we eat, we find: Mercury in fish, Lead in bone broth, Cadmium and/or lead in all cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes; Arsenic and/or cyanide in white and brown rice and in wines and in hard liqueurs and in all USA chickens, Cadmium and/or lead in USA chocolates and in the candies that our children eat and also in prescription drugs, mercury and aluminum in the antibiotics and vaccines that are supposed to save us (!!!) And in our non-food based vitamins, and in ourBABY vaccines, baby foods, pet foods, etc.

The cover-up by the feds is failing as more people discover the depopulation agenda of the FEDS.

Today everyone has heavy metal poisons – do you doubt it? If you eat white table salt then you are poisoned:

White table salt comes with: E535 Sodium FERROCYANIDE and/or E536 Potassium FERROCYANIDE and/or E538 CALCIUM FERROCYANIDE and/or E553b Talcum powder and/or E554 Sodium ALUMINOSILICATE and/or E555 Potassium ALUMINIUMSILICATE and/or E556 Calcium ALUMINOSILICATE and/or E559 ALUMINIUM SILICATE. And if you drink bottled water or any tap water you were also poisoned.

The list of foods, products and vaccines where we find these deadly heavy metal poisons and toxic chemicals are growing longer each year.

But the path of how they kill us is not well known by the general public.

To start the calcification process the body has to have a blockage of calcium from where it should go to where it should not go.

Most people and many medical professionals have no idea that the body’s chemistry and each and every nutrients must be in balance or the body will suffer many illnesses or even death. Any nutrient that if too high or too low in the body is not optimum and upsets the health absorption and balance ratio.

Any nutrient can cause illnesses and death if it is locking up another nutrient from being absorbed, or causing it to make another antagonist nutrient to also act as a chain of antagonists.

The moment that heavy metal poisons were placed back into our bodies, by means of poisoning our water, foods, plants and food animals, that is the exact moment of the start of “murder by calcification”.

Look at these nutrients Vitamin A and C and the simple common mineral magnesium, they can act in two ways, if in balance they will help the calcium go into the bones, and jaw.

But when [ Vitamins: A, C, B1, B3, B6, E
Minerals: Fe, K, Mg, Na, P, Zn Metals: Pb (Lead) ] — are too much, bad things happen to our lives. They become antagonists to your calcium and will destroy your health and/or cause your death.

Here is another five clues for you to learn, (1) all the heavy metal poisons eliminate and/or block Vitamin C in repairing the cells in your veins, and transfer it from your bones, jaw and teeth to your circulatory system in such a manner that causes blockages. (2) All the plagues in the world do the same to natural Vitamin C.
 
Note – taking garlic and Vit. C together is more effective in removing parasites and reducing plaque levels in your veins.
Artificial Vit. C allows all parasites to harm us. In fact, parasites feed off of the calcification contaminated with heavy metal poisons.And (4) without natural Vitamin C: Vitamin C helps rebuild the tissue collagen and maintains the integrity of connective tissue – cartilage, veins, arteries, capillaries, bones and teeth.(5) Without real and natural Vitamin C: blockage is formed in your veins and you get calcification in all areas of your body.https://www.alternativesforhealing.com/business-directory/wpbdp_category/chelation-therapy-practitioners/So, here we have deficiency of the very nutrients that we need to be in balance and prevent decalcification.

Plaques start forming in the veins first and here we have high blood pressure, then the plaques travel closer to the heart and kill us by heart attacks.

The plaques start forming in the organs, from then on we get prostate problems, then to the eyes to give us cataracts and glaucoma and total blindness.

When you continue to take EDTA, the calcification that enlarged your prostate gland and caused the pressure and forced you to urinate a hundred times a day, is lessened and slowly your trips to the bathroom is less as more of the unwanted calcium is removed from the prostate.

Here again the story is the same, the more you continue therapy with EDTA, the more of the calcification within the eyes is removed and the glaucoma pressure goes down. If you start early taking Edta you will not get glaucoma later on in life.

The same goes for cataracts. Calcification of your eyes causes millions of people going blind each year. But knowing the true causes of these many illnesses is the road to salvation and/or prevention for you and for your loved ones.

There are millions of disabled people that have no idea that calcification of the joints are the major cause of disabled people. When the veins, arteries and capillaries in your legs are blocked, your circulation is minimized 50% to 90%. When your blood flow is stopped, you have pain and you will have no more strength in your legs.

As more plaques form in other organs, each of those organs fails and we get many other illnesses.

As your unwanted or displaced calcium travels to your liver, kidneys and gallbladder, you will get calcium stones that can totally block these organs and cause extreme pain or even death.

This is a list of illnesses that Edta detoxification program can help, depending on the severity of your problem and the amount of healing sessions you will need.

The memory that can be regained by a total de-calcification of all your body can clean up the calcification in your brain.

Alzheimer’s or Progressive dementia is explained by doctors this way:

“That as your acetylcholine levels drop, your brain gets inflamed, resulting in formations called amyloid plaques. This causes loss of brain cells, especially those that make new memories and retrieve old ones. And slowly but surely you develop full-fledged cognitive impairment.”

But the truth is that the same calcium plaque formations in other areas of your body have finally traveled to your brain.

Erectile Dysfunction, Glaucoma, Cataracts and total blindness, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, liver, kidney and gallbladder stones, heart attacks, irregular heartbeats, and clogged veins, LOW IQ, MENTAL RETARDATION, DOWN SYNDROME;

Buerger’s disease, bursitis, cirrhosis, congestive heart failure, coronary atherosclerosis, dementia, diabetes, gangrene, heavy metal poisoning, impotence, kidney disease, lead toxicity, macular degeneration; multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, jaw bone loss, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s syndrome, Peyronie’s disease, cancer, psoriasis, Raynaud’s disease, renal insufficiency, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, scleroderma, senility, strokes, tachycardia, tinnitus, thrombophlebitis, lost of vitality, POISONED BLOOD and many more.

Wherever you get calcification in or near any organ or body part, and have heavy metal poisons there, that will stop nutrients and blood flow there.

Calcium

Vitamins: A, C, D, K
Minerals: Mg

Vitamins: A, C, B1, B3, B6, E
Minerals: Fe, K, Mg, Na, P, Zn Metals: Pb (lead)

Since lead (PB- in the periodic table of elements) is the major antagonist of the heavy metal poisons to Calcium, then any person containing even a tiny bit of LEAD will ensure that the Calcium is displaced and transferred into the circulatory system instead into the bones, jaw and teeth.

The knowledge of self-healing by Patriots is far superior now because of people like me.

The one thing that will make your own self-healing program that much easier is to take and learn how to read a hair analysis test.

NO one can improve another, if they don’t know that all nutrients have what is called” AN ANTAGONIST”.

That means that if another healing center so-called doctor/professional (such as Contact Reflex Analysis) does not even know that you are too high or too low on a nutrient/s, they WON”T know how to solve the problem of making the particular nutrient go low or go high in order to get in the right balance as the body wants to be in. They don’t even test for the fact that their fraudulent science has no method to spot heavy metal poisons acting as antagonists of the very nutrients that they tell you to take. Even if you are lucky enough to get a hair analysis test from them, they know nothing of heavy metal detoxifications with Edta

Trying to use non-decalcifications methods with chlorella or zeolite will not work permanently either, as the calcium plaques capture and hold heavy metal poisons and parasites in all areas of the body. Only Edta eliminates both plaques and heavy metal poisons permanently and removes the plaques that parasites feed off of the toxins there.

A fraudulent healing method called “Contact Reflex Analysis” (CRA) — CRA does not take in consideration that just about anything can affect the CRA readings from: Lights, clothes, emotions, pains, heavy metal poisons, parasites and chemical toxins etc.

Here again in the world of nutrition, we must learn about proper diet programs that can help put the food’s nutrients back in balance back to where it should be.

For example: If you have too high a level of any of the nutritional antagonists of calcium, you will know which foods to avoid.

When a patriot does an EDTA detoxification program, the first things he/she will feel is a gradual increase in blood flow to all parts of his/her body. That is automatic as removing the heavy metal poisons will also remove the calcifications within his/her veins, arteries and capillaries in all areas.

Then after that, when he/she goes on to diet with nutritional programs; start him/her on food based nutrients that most people have never taken, because of being banned by the FDA, except online by only some companies. HERE is where the Energy comes back into a person’s life again like never before – see below.

The sad fact is that nearly all people have no idea that they have calcification or even know what it is, and for sure they can’t tell if they have heavy metal poisons in them. That is why you should get a hair analysis done with us a.s.a.p.

https://www.evenbetterhealth.com/FAQs-Hair-Tissue-Analysis.phpYour hair analysis will give all the data to bring you to back better than you were before. FACT: some new born infants come into life extremely toxic because of their mothers. Even now no matter your age, you will become a pure person again. I call that having or being a “PURE BLOOD”.

Organic heavy metal poisons are extremely rare to find in nature (only found in mines deep underground), but deadly INORGANIC heavy metal poisons are NOW found in too many of our foods, water, in the meat of food animals, and hundreds of products approved by the FDA.

Contact Reflex Analysis (CRA) examinations are fraudulent when they claim that their CRA methods can spot heavy metal poisons. But any nutrient that is in excess will act as a poison in the body. Parasite infestations will throw off a CRA reading and you will be sold nutrients that could un-balance your body further.

An organic example would be “Lima Beans” that have naturally 31 ppm of cyanide and “Almonds” with 100 ppm of non-deadly cyanide. And my favorite is Cassava root – will read as high as 31 ppm to 100 ppm dependent on the cooking methods of non-deadly cyanide.

Inorganic example would be Cigarette smoke with 1,600 deadly ppm of cyanide.

But today wines contain more deadly arsenic poisons than cyanide. Hard liquor has the most deadly cyanide levels.

FACT – each person will have different tolerances to each heavy metal poison. A tiny bit can cause the death or illness of a child, or even a large man.

GENOCIDE ALERT: We have mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde in ALL vaccines, even the ones for children. Baby foods and formulas also are poisoned.

FACT! The socialists have claimed that the illnesses listed here are incurable:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_incurable_diseasesHowever, the fact is that unless you remove the toxins, chemicals, heavy metal poisons, in the foods, plants and water no one can recover from their depopulation agenda. If you learn the protocols and detoxify, you can recover your health and have a vibrant life again.

The socialists claim that all heavy metal poisons were always there in the soil, plants and water as their lies to hide the truth of their treason.

Danger! Talcum powder, over the counter stomach medicines, antacids and Baking soda/powder has many forms of aluminum and may have Cyanide; Arsenic and/or Cyanide are put in Wines, Beers and liqueurs.

They even try to kill us with our medical marijuana cigarettes, and marijuana-based drugs approved by the FDA, by putting Cadmium and lead into them.

ENERGY DRINKS — MORE GENOCIDE FACTS: It is not just extreme amounts of caffeine in energy drinks that causes energy drinks to be harmful and deadly, but to get all the facts, study the PDF and you will learn that Vit. B3 and Vit. B6 both eliminates Calcium, also copper, sodium and iron from the body and transfers the un-bio-available calcium into your veins were it causes calcification of all organs, causing as expected heart problems, such as irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, cardiac arrest, kidney failure, heart attacks and strokes and many other problems like skin conditions, gastrointestinal problems, liver toxicity, blurred vision and nerve damage and many more.EVEN MORE DEADLY: Many energy drinks have been found to have arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury, which will cause illnesses and death.PAST GENOCIDE OF VETERANS: Agent Orange had a cocktail of many herbicides with DIOXIN and other cancer causing chemicals. However, what the Socialists might not want to admit, is the fact that AGENT ORANGE had massive amounts lead, cadmium, and arsenic which stay in the body forever. The V. A. knows of their treason to the people.Another thing that they will not admit, is that ARSENIC, and mercury, lead, aluminum and cadmium and fluorides can and does cause damage to DNA and causes birth defects and infanticide.

ALL three heavy metal poisons — arsenic, cadmium and lead will last for generations in the human body – unless you use EDTA to remove them.

THE KILLING VACCINES:

Meningococcal Meningitis vaccines contain:

Aluminum hydroxide, Mercury as Thiomersal, also called Thimerosal and sodium chloride which removes Potassium from the body.

Whooping cough vaccine contains:

Aluminum phosphate and Formaldehyde

Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis Vaccines contain:

Aluminum, formaldehyde, and Thimerosal and/or mercury.

It is next to impossible today to NOT find a deadly Heavy Metal Poison in vaccines.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vaccine_ingredientsNearly all vaccines contain one form of aluminum such as potassium sulfate, Aluminum hydroxide etc., and formaldehyde (embalming fluid), Thimerosal and/or Mercury.

But the worst form of genocide is in the vaccines to kill off our kids!!!

https://vaccines.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=005206 —this website admits finding that vaccines are made with: African Green Monkey (Vero) cells, aluminum, cow products, Cocker Spaniel cells, formaldehyde, human fetal lung tissue cells, insect products, and mouse brains etc.

INFANTICIDE — GENOCIDE FACT — Fluoride is an abundant mineral toxic waste product of aluminum, phosphate, cement, steel and nuclear weapons manufacturing. It is put in all infant formulas, vaccines and products as an infanticide.The Collectivists also discovered that when combined with other heavy metal poisons, the more they poisoned our bodies with other kinds of chemicals, toxins and poisons; very rare illnesses became commonplace and killed and/or disabled children, infants and newborn babies, and the elderly.

Another fact to consider is that each and every one of these heavy metal poisons, toxins and chemicals eliminates food nutrients out of your body and produces another nutritional deficiency illness.

Most Common Signs and Symptoms of Heavy Metal Poisoning

 

 

  • Alcohol intolerance
  • Allergies (environmental and food sensitivities)
  • Anxious and irritable
  • Brain fog
  • Cannot lose weight
  • Chronic unexplained pain
  • Coated tongue
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Depression – or other emotional problems
  • Prone to mood swings
  • Digestive problems
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Frequent colds and flues
  • Headaches
  • High levels of toxic metals in your blood, urine or tissues
  • Insomnia
  • Intolerance to medications & vitamins
  • Loss of memory and forgetfulness
  • Low body temperature
  • Metallic taste in mouth
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Muscle tics or twitches
  • Muscle tremors
  • Night sweats
  • Parasites
  • Prone to rashes
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Sensitive to smells like tobacco smoke, perfumes, paint fumes and chemical odors
  • Skin problems
  • Small black spots on your gums
  • Sore or receding gums lines and loss of teeth
  • Tingling in the extremities
  • Unsteady gait
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies

Commonly seen symptoms of mercury toxicity include:

Fatigue, headache, insomnia, nervousness, impaired judgment and coordination, loss of libido, emotional instability, hypothyroidism, foggy thinking, chronic fungal infection, candidiasis, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and speech disturbances.

Mercury is one of the most toxic minerals known to man, and yet it is also one of the most common heavy metal’s used today. It’s even used in children’s vaccines as a preservative in the form Thimerosal.

“If you inject thimerosal into an animal, it’s brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.”

Boyd Haley PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, University of Kentucky.

Lead damages the kidneys, brain, blood (it enters the red blood cells that help distribute the poison to all areas), muscles and bones.

Symptoms of Lead toxicity may include chronic kidney disease, hypertension, encephalopathy, anemia, gout, sterility, abortion, fatigue, irritability, ADD, hyperactivity, memory loss, decreased sensory and motor reaction times, and abdominal pain.

Aluminum damages the brain and is linked to Alzheimer’s Disease. It affects the muscles, liver, lungs, kidneys, skin, reproductive organs, stomach, thyroid, and bone.

Symptoms of aluminum toxicity include: Constipation, anorexia, gastro-intestinal irritation, hyperactivity, speech disorders, dementia, osteomalacia, excessive headaches, abnormal heart rhythm, numbness of hands and feet, blurred vision, and impaired memory. Because Aluminum blurs the eyesight, it is the major reason why people go blind very fast from glaucoma and/or cataracts or both at the same time.

Aluminum disrupts calcium regulation in the body and also binds phosphorus, and iron in the gastro-intestinal tract. By binding Iron, phosphorus, sodium, now these too become deadly antagonists against calcium absorption

http://www.answers.com/Q/Is_sodium_fluoride_a_byproduct_of_aluminum

The role of fluorides is very evil. Fluorides were put into our drinking water and in the canned baby foods, baby formulas to kill us slowly and to disrupt the calcium absorption to ensure calcification and mass murder.

Calcium Fluoride comes from the earth and is naturally occurring. Sodium Fluoride is a hazardous by-product of the fertilizer, aluminum and nuclear industries. Sodium Fluoride is anywhere from 30-120 times deadlier than Calcium Fluoride.

They even add many ways to kill us — Hydrofluosilicic acid, the chemical often used to fluoridate drinking water, is an industrial waste that contains lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, benzene and radioactive waste material. The depopulation agenda and the stupidity of Contact Reflex Analysis professinals will kill us all.

Cadmium toxicity causes skeletal demineralization, increasing the risk for osteoporosis and fractures. Other symptoms of cadmium toxicity include; Erectile Dysfunction, anemia, dry skin, hair loss, heart disease, joint pain and kidney stones.

Cadmium is especially harmful because it increases the permeability of cells, and allows for other heavy metals to leak into the cells. If at the same time you have any amounts of aluminum, your calcification will be severe.

Copper affects the liver, bone marrow, kidneys, spleen, heart, lungs, stomach, intestines, hair, brain and eyes to cause blindness when the calcification is in the eyes.

Symptoms of copper toxicity may include: Abdominal complaints, metallic taste in mouth, schizophrenia, manic depression, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, hypochondria, poor memory, irritability, fatigue, and demyelination of nerves.

Copper is often found in dietary supplements and non-food based multi-vitamins/mineral. One with copper toxicity should never take more copper from an outside source. Copper competes with zinc for absorption (KILLS DESIRE, GIVES YOU E.D.), so often the treatment of choice is to supplement zinc.

THE DEPOPULATION AGENDA TO KILL ALL OF US WILL NEVER STOP, UNLESS YOU TRY TO SAVE YOUR OWN LIVES BY LEARNING WHO IS TRIYING TO KILL YOU (The Collectivist—Hive Mind) AND WHY?. THE MURDER OF OUR CHILDREN MUST STOP.

When you read what chemical calcium does to the body, the brain, the arteries  – and not entering the bones for calcium to strengthen bones in our bodies and even our jaw bone.  So many elderly have arthritis of the jaw bone, you can sometimes hear the crackling sound of an elderly person chewing – lack of calcium absorbed in the jaw bone.
 
There is an answer to bypass this murder by calcification – and there is a book about this called:   “The Disease Conspiracy, The FDA Suppression of Cures”  by Robert Barefoot, this is an awesome book to make us aware.  Bob Barefoot is a Christian man, and has written many books, list below.  Coral calcium is a salt of calcium derived from fossilized coral reefs.   I prefer it in the powder form, but it does come in tablet form also.  I just add the powder to my juice, hot tea or water and stirred up.   No flavor, a bit gritty – but coral calcium is absorbed into the bones and not stored in the brain to create Alzheimer’s or dementia and not stored in the arteries to  clog them up.  I do prefer Bob’s Coral calcium as I know it is pure.    There is also Coral White toothpaste.   See many of the highlighted areas to research further on your own. 

Remember, this is brought to you to be aware and for you & your family to be in good health.  Put on your armor of God, be informed and take action.

Post on Facebook: George Pearsons, Pastor of Eagle Mountain Church 
August 21 at 9:30 AM · 

In 2017, Brother Copeland had a word from The LORD: “Get your house in order.” That’s what Terri and I have been doing since we heard that word. We’ve been getting our ministry house and our personal house in order. And you know what? We reaped the benefit of obeying the word of The LORD. Now, when issues come up—personal or ministry—we’re prepared. Those things don’t throw me because we’ve obeyed The LORD and gotten our house in order.

With all the news of earthquakes and weather related situations, we have lost touch with nature.  We live in noise,  cell phones, lap tops,  TV’s, radio’s, traffic sounds etc. disconnect us with nature.
 
It brought me back to my childhood & the nature education our Dad taught us.  As we sat on the bare ground our Dad would ask… what do you feel…….   what do you smell………  what do you sense…..what do you see….. What are the clouds saying…… what are the birds doing……   Listen/feel storms coming,  smell the rain miles off  – feel earth temperature  – what is the sky saying, what  are the insects saying, watch what birds & the dogs are telling us or warning us.    It was amazing how accurate our dad was, because we grew up with no television to tell us weather forecasts.
 
 
We lived on 200 acres which was the stopping place for the stage coaches to & from Chicago to Galena, Illinois where horses were watered at the lake edge.  The groves from their wheels are still slightly indented today on the ground.   Our lake also was the  camp site for the Fox and Winnebago Indians.   The 100 year old lady who sold the land told my folks stories of watching the Indian’s along the lake sure, cooking, eating, sleeping – she watched from her upstairs bedroom window. These lessons meant more because this was previous Indian land.
 
God, our Father, is teaching us also and we need to be in touch with Him and the Word by listening and obeying.
 
When Jeff and I went to Sonoma Valley, California we were shocked that there were no sparrows outside the motel or restaurant areas.  There were dumpsters with crumbs and food scraps on ground, but no animals or birds anywhere – dead silent with no birds singing.   We drove 2 hours east to Yosemite  National Park where we saw only one squirrel and a few small deer.   We climbed way up to top of a mountain & we never passed any animals and we never heard birds singing.
The bird and animal life  moved east miles away from the radiation which is in the air all along the entire east coast line from Japan’s nuclear blast.   Newborn babies in California are being born with high levels of radiation and free radicals in their bodies.
When we returned home, we had lab tests done and we did have radiation in our system, just from two weeks there.
 
Over many years, our Earth has been relatively stable allowing us to build up our civilization to the towering heights it has reached.

There are a vast number of cycles on this planet that affect habitability.

One cycle is the rotation of the earth itself and the correlation between it and seismic activity.

Scientists have warned there could be a big increase in the number of devastating earthquakes and storms around the world and we read about so many small ones in different states almost daily that humans do not detect, but the animals do.  .

With all this science and intelligence on our changing planet it seems we have muddied our own natural survival instincts. Did you know that there are signals given off by our planet to warn us of impending disasters?

We have so wrapped ourselves in distractions (TV, radio, headsets, cell phones, lap tops, etc)   that we cannot be

 

 

  aware of with our physical body. Animals still react to these signals though, and while we have muted our own senses we can rely on theirs as a natural ‘tell’ for what’s coming.

The Earth’s Natural Signals

There are many ways that our planet and its atmosphere convey approaching disasters and changes in the weather. Some of these signals can be measured by sophisticated human instruments, but they are also picked up and acted on in the animal world.

One of the most well known is barometric pressure. You probably hear about this on the nightly news. Barometric pressure drops as storms approach. This is how animals know things like major storms and hurricanes are nearing. Hydrostatic pressure is similar, but affects the water pressure, and this is what sends fish to deeper water when the pressure drops enough.

Lesser known but just as important, infrasonic impulses are another sign the earth gives us. These low vibrations are emitted by natural disasters and can be early warnings for tidal waves, earthquakes or even volcanic eruptions. They all send the same message to animals that can sense them – trouble is coming.

Animal Signals

There must have been a time when we were just as perceptive as the animals on this planet, since we have lost much of that ability. I want to tell you about some signs and signals that you can observe from the animals around you that may clue you in to when a serious situation is heading your way.

Remember, we may not always have the weatherman to tell us when a massive hurricane is bearing down – but who needs a weatherman when animals give clear signals that trouble is coming?

The Birds and The Bees

Both of these animals are going to seek shelter if a disaster is imminent. You could watch your own bees or bees from another area head into their hive. Bees will take shelter before disaster. Birds may also be migrating in a new pattern before a serious storm. I hope you know basic directions and that birds typically fly south in the winter and north in the summer. Use this information to look for strange migration patterns.

University students have studied golden-winged warblers take off from their expected locations more than 24 hours before storms hit. In this case, the storm in question produced tornadoes that killed at least 35 people.

On the Water

A lot of fish behavior can tell you about what’s coming. It has long been a trick in my family to get out fishing just before a storm. The coming front often turns fish on and makes them aggressive. When the storm is very close the fish can shut down. I have read that jumping fish can be a sign of electric impulses in the air and water, or even of pressure changes.

Frogs often head for higher ground, and can actually be seen climbing away from water bodies, before storms. They will also get quieter at night.

Down on the Farm

It is common for cows and other herd animals to head for high ground before a storm. They sense the same pressure changes we discussed earlier. Horses and other pets might refuse food as well as exhibit agitated behavior.   If you see cattle laying down in field together,  you can be sure that it is going to rain, not storm, but rain.

Chickens also feel the threat, and can slow or stop egg production as a result.

Man’s Best Friend

Dogs become agitated and aggressive before a natural disaster. They may bark more and be more anxious before a major weather event or other disaster. They could be wary of certain locations in the yard or on walks that they normally frequent.

Some scientists think dogs and other animals can sense the preliminary waves that signal an earthquake ahead of the destructive seismic waves. Humans can’t detect P-waves, but most animals have more acute senses than we do.

Picking up on how your dogs are acting can give you last-minute warning of an earthquake. Dogs will wake up just before an earthquake hits. You might not get a lot of warning, but it could be all you need to run outside where it’s safer.

A dog will suddenly jump up and ran to his owner. A few seconds later an earthquake arrived. That’s about tens seconds for you to start processing and reacting – and in a disaster scenario, every second counts.   Earth quakes are occurring more frequently, from the very slight movement to large magnitudes.  Look at Hawaii recently with so many homes destroyed and hot lava and toxic sulfur steam.    The quake ring  of fire is a 25,000 mile horseshoe shaped ring, where 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur. see picture.
Ring of Fire

Dogs are one of the best examples because you can observe them very closely for strange behavior.

A few other strange animal behaviors that could signal disaster are things like:

A mixture of our pompous attitudes and an overwhelming reliance on technology, has put us at greater risk of falling victim to major disasters. We do silly things like filming tornadoes and storms rather than seeking shelter. We rely solely on the news to tell us when things are going wrong.

Of course, the biggest failure that has come from our muting of the earths warnings is our lack of preparedness. While animals stow away food for the winter and head to higher ground in times of disaster, the human animal is so bold that we hardly react till disaster is on the doorstep.

It is this terrifying lack of preparedness that forces so many of us to be the antithesis. We should be prepared for our families with resources to survive anything from a powerful thunderstorm to the any disasters that might come and be able to sustain us for a few weeks without assistance if necessary.    Time to just be aware of what our animal life are telling us..

Couple tips I’d like to share with  you.
Can’t believe time for school supplies already.  Florida kids went back to school  Monday 8/6.  They attend school from 8:30am to 2:30pm because of the heat after 3pm, but they go to school till first of June to attend the required hours in school.   Ohio school children started back to school Wed 8/9.   So in Wisconsin we get to enjoy our kids and grandkids a bit longer.
 
When I was thinking of school beginning, I was reminded of when I repaired a broken clip on one of the children’s back packs.    I used super glue which somehow managed to not only fix the clip but stuck 3 of my fingers together.    I used Lemon essential oil which I poured over the fingers and rubbed the oil in with the other fingers and it released the super glue completely.   Just a tip to keep handy.   Much cheaper and less painful than an emergency room visit.Also, as we shop at our grocery store, I would like  you to think carefully about  buying produce from California due to the fire retardants that are being sprayed from air and heavy ground spraying.   California normally has high winds, but add in the high fire winds and winds turbulence from  helicopters and planes overhead – these retardant chemicals are blowing over fields covering the orange groves, lemon groves, lettuce, and grapes.   California wine or grape juice could be tainted with many chemicals.
 
These thin skinned fruits and vegetables absorb  chemicals (like the dirty dozen)  and cannot be washed or soaked away.   Time to just be careful of what we put in our bodies.
 
You will start to notice at sunset some very brilliant red, scarlet, deep pink skies – these colors are from the California fires which is from the smoke and fine particulate particles in the wind path as our winds come from the west.   These fine particles have now reached the east coast areas.
 
A good fruit/produce wash is to put 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide in a bowl of water and soak for few minutes.  This will remove the outside chemicals or wax sprayed on the produce.
 
August is a great time to sit outside in the warm breezes and enjoy fun popsicles and Iced tea – crush a couple mint leaves between  your fingers, drop in glass, add ice and pour iced tea over for a cooling refreshing drink.
And this is a great time to make up some strawberry jam, especially the no-cook kind so kitchen doesn’t get heated up.   Come wintertime you will enjoy this summer flavor so much and appreciate that you planned ahead to enjoy jam on hot toast when the snow is outside.
 
 
Fruit Popsicle Recipes

It’s that time of year when I’m cleaning out the freezer of last year’s frozen fruit in order to make room for new seasonal fruit. So, naturally, I’m thinking of spoiling the family with some homemade fruit popsicles. I’ll be honest– I don’t always have homemade popsicles ready-to-go at a moment’s notice, but when I do? Well, I’m pretty much super-mom in their eyes. —->

The hub of activity was in the kitchen during my childhood and the memories of my mother in her apron with fans buzzing away is so sweet to me today.   Wish I had told her how amazed I was at all she could get done, mowing 6 acres of grass, a 3 acre  garden, our music lessons, 5 younger children and 5 adult children.
I have been spending time in her recipe boxes, so many were handwritten on any paper handy.   Many were from the depression years, and how she cooked on top of the furnace to save money on utilities.    what a treasure.   I did find some of her favorite tips for keeping cool in the summer time which I’d like to share one with all of  you – we need to stay cool during the hot days of August.
 

Drink water. Stay hydrated  especially if you’re going to be sweating or out in the heat. And if you wish some flavor to your water, use cooling herbs to cool down.   You can also make essential oil flavored ice cubes using a metal ice cube maker.   These flavored cubes are so good in cold water or iced tea.

 . Use cooling herbs:  Peppermint or spearmint.  Rinse mint leaves from your garden, roll them between your fingers to crush the leaves and release the mint oil.  Place in a Mason Jar, add ice, cover with cold water and sip to refresh.  If you like it sweet you could add 2 drops of stevia extract, optional.    Another sweet tip is to add honey and some cinnamon to iced tea.  Both cooling
You could also brew some tea, and pour the tea over ice with the crushed mint for another refreshing drink.
 
 
Oils for cooling:  Peppermint oil, clove oil, orange oil, lemon oil and my favorite is lime oil in cold water.  Just a drop or two in ice water is so refreshing.
 
Run cold water over your wrists and in the crook of elbows so cooling.   Wet slightly frozen wash cloths around the neck is also cooling.  Take a wet kitchen towel, shape it into a u-shape and then put in freezer.  After it is frozen drape it around your neck.   Are you cool yet ?
Wear breathable clothing, cotton is much cooler fabric than many other materials.  White lightweight cotton helps block direct sun from skin too.   Often we are cooler in a long dress than shorts and tee shirt.
 
Our bodies sweat to cool us down – as the sweat evaporates it cools us.  But there are times we need to cool down quickly, spray your head, neck face with a garden hose   ** make sure you run all the hot water out of the hose first or you could burn your skin **
Get in the shade, especially when there is a breeze, this feels so refreshing.

This time of year, the garden is at mid point – getting lettuce, celery, a little broccoli, & weeds – but I feel so grounded out there digging in the dirt.
 
Wanted to share a really great summer ice cream treat for you to make and enjoy.
 
Best Blueberry Ice Cream You’ve Ever Had

There’s blueberry ice cream, and then there’s this Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. It’s a whole different animal than your typical blueberry ice cream– it’s creamier, and richer, and you’ll want to eat it by the pound.

Here is episode 9 of the autoimmune series.   Oh my what we have been learning.  I do hope you are sharing these with your family and friends.   We need to let others know about what can be done to help us all to live healthier,  happier and longer. .
We can eat all the organic vegetables, grass fed beef, range free chickens, fresh farm eggs, but if we do not understand how to protect our immune system so we are not being attacked by any of the over 80 autoimmune diseases then we are short changing ourselves.

Alternative Uses For Honey

When we speak of honey, the word sweet is usually not far behind. It’s because honey contains different types of sugars such as fructose, glucose, sucrose, and maltose.It is produced by bees from the nectar of flowers and stocked up for the long winter season. We, humans, then harvest this honey for our own consumption.We are all aware of the great uses for honey in the kitchen, but there is more to this sweet nectar than meets the eye.Much like your regular Swiss Army Knife, honey has a multitude of uses that goes beyond its wonderful taste. It is a little known fact that it contains a lot of nutrients essential to our health.
 
 
It also possesses antimicrobial properties that are good for treating bacterial and fungal infections. Honey is also packed with antioxidants which prevent the formation of free radicals that cause a number of diseases.
And so, in prepping for any type of emergency, you better add honey to your stockpile because when SHTF, this sweet little treat will provide you with the much-needed calories for stressful situations.No need to worry because honey has a long shelf life so it’ll last a while, and if you’re still wondering how it will come in handy in disastrous situations, read on because I’ve made a list!1. Treats wounds and burns

 

 

Topical application of honey on your wounds and burns works just as well as commercial antiseptics. The antimicrobial properties of honey prevent bacterial infection while hydrogen peroxide reduces inflammation and cleans the wound.
 

2. Relieves diarrhea

Diarrhea is usually caused by bacterial infection and this can be counteracted with honey. Honey mixed in water usually does the trick. Just remember to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.

 

3. Treats urinary tract infections

Another example of bacterial infections you might get are those of the urinary tract. Bacterial infections are likely to happen if you run out of clean water and food. If you don’t have access to antibiotics, honey works just as well in reducing the level of bacteria in the body. No more burning sensation when you pee next time.

4. Soothes sore throat and cough

When you run out of cough syrups and you have to improvise, honey may just be what you need. The antimicrobial activity of honey will put an end to that persistent cough of yours. It works even better with lemon. Just squeeze the life out of that lemon and add honey to the juice. Stir until thoroughly mixed and then drink it. You’ll notice immediate relief on your sore throat.

5. Removes parasites

In a gloomy scenario where medical care is out of the question, any good survivalist has to make due with what he’s got. If you become infested with worms and other parasites, don’t hesitate to drink honey; you can mix it in water alongside vinegar. The combined action of the acidity in vinegar and the antimicrobial properties of honey can get rid of those nasty parasites living in your gut.

6. Promotes a good night’s sleep

In case of an evacuation and you have to camp outdoors, brace yourself for a lot of sleepless nights. You can rid yourself of all the tossing and turning by dabbing on a little honey on your tongue. Honey increases insulin production which in turn releases serotonin, responsible for alleviating mood and happiness. Serotonin is then converted to melatonin, which plays an important role in the quality and duration of your sleep.

7. Relieves stress and anxiety.

Consequently, the sweet and calming effect of honey can ease the stress that comes with trying to just get through the day alive. Drink honey with tea or simply with water to relieve those worries.

8. Boost energy levels

Because, honey helps reduce stress, it makes a good addition on your drink for a quick energy fix. The glucose in honey, which goes into the bloodstream, provides energy and relieves fatigue in the body. This works best in bug out situations where you need a lot of stamina.

9. Prevents viral infections

If you have managed to get out of a risky situation, you might not be successful the second time around if you don’t take care of your health. Honey is loaded with zinc and selenium, along with other nutrients, to help the immune system in fighting off bacterial and viral infections.

10. Prevents cancer

Honey can also aid in fighting off cancer, one of life’s greatest enemies. Honey is rich in antioxidants, which can prevent the formation of cancer cells as well vitamins and minerals to reduce susceptibility to cancer.

11. Improves blood circulation

Drinking honey is also good for your blood circulation. The glucose gives you energy and raises blood sugar levels. Glucose promotes better blood circulation which prevents capillary damage as well as reducing the risk of heart disease.

12. Prevents colitis

Colitis, a disease that damages the colon can be alleviated with continuous intake of honey. The antioxidants in honey can strengthen the colon’s resistance to colitis and other colon-related diseases. The enzymes in honey that aid in digestion also help in reducing strain in the colon.

13. Improves eyesight

Vitamin A is well known nutrient in improving eyesight. Pairing foods rich with Vitamin A and honey may enhance the vitamin’s effect on your vision, especially in a post-SHTF scenario where electricity is a thing of the past.

14. Strengthens memory

The antioxidants in honey also work in improving brain function. One study shows that a spoonful of honey helps increase memory. You never know when recalling a small piece of information can make a difference between life and death.

15. Aids in digestion

Honey also assists in digestion because it contains a lot of enzymes that participate in the breakdown of food. This is a good alternative from your regular sugar, which can actually impede your digestion.

16. Cures hangovers

Even in post-SHTF situations, you can still enjoy drinking alcohol by making some. And so, when that hangover finally hits you, you can always turn to honey for help. Fructose accelerates the metabolism of alcohol, easing that incessant head-pounding in no time at all. The key to getting rid of hangovers is hydration

17. Helps absorb calcium

Another special property of honey is it aids in absorbing calcium the bones, based on a study conducted in Indiana. This reduces the risk of acquiring osteoporosis. On the contrary, the use of commercial sugar contributes to calcium leakage.

BONUS

Surprisingly, even with all the benefits mentioned above, there are still a lot of practical uses for honey.

18. Prevents hair loss

For those with thinning hair, it’s best to start adding honey to your hair regimen because there are also reports that demonstrate honey’s ability to improve hair loss. Honey can be used to target damaged, unhealthy hair and the fungal infections associated with baldness. For men desperate to hide those bald spots, a dab of honey on your scalp won’t hurt.

19. Treats dandruff

If you think, that’s all honey can do for your hair, then you have another thing coming. This study shows that honey can also treat dandruff as well as seborrheic dermatitis, by reducing redness and scalp itching. The antimicrobial properties of honey wards off fungal growth associated with dandruff.

20. Prevents dry skin

In a situation where survival means constant motion, you may have to bear walking under the scorching heat of the sun. This will leave you dehydrated and your skin dry and rough. The antimicrobial agents as well as antioxidants in honey protect and nourish the skin. Apply honey in those dry areas and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Then wash off with water.

Final Word

It is amazing just how many uses there are for honey especially in life-threatening conditions. The good news is that honey can easily be found in stores and supermarkets. You can use it to your liking, may it be for consumption, for medical emergencies, or as an antibiotic. So all you preppers out there, better stash some honey away to leave you covered for emergency situations, should they arise.

Just remember to use honey in moderation because too much sugar also puts you at risk for diabetes and other ailments. It should also be noted that honey works better as a supplement in preventing and treating diseases and should not be SOLELY substituted for medicine. Say you wha

Alternative Uses For Honey

When we speak of honey, the word sweet is usually not far behind. It’s because honey contains different types of sugars such as fructose, glucose, sucrose, and maltose.

It is produced by bees from the nectar of flowers and stocked up for the long winter season. We, humans, then harvest this honey for our own consumption.

We are all aware of the great uses for honey in the kitchen, but there is more to this sweet nectar than meets the eye.

Much like your regular Swiss Army Knife, honey has a multitude of uses that goes beyond its wonderful taste. It is a little known fact that it contains a lot of nutrients essential to our health.
It also possesses antimicrobial properties that are good for treating bacterial and fungal infections. Honey is also packed with antioxidants which prevent the formation of free radicals that cause a number of diseases.
And so, in prepping for any type of emergency, you better add honey to your stockpile because when SHTF, this sweet little treat will provide you with the much-needed calories for stressful situations.

No need to worry because honey has a long shelf life so it’ll last a while, and if you’re still wondering how it will come in handy in disastrous situations, read on because I’ve made a list!

1. Treats wounds and burns

Topical application of honey on your wounds and burns works just as well as commercial antiseptics. The antimicrobial properties of honey prevent bacterial infection while hydrogen peroxide reduces inflammation and cleans the wound.

2. Relieves diarrhea
Diarrhea is usually caused by bacterial infection and this can be counteracted with honey. Honey mixed in water usually does the trick. Just remember to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.

3. Treats urinary tract infections
Another example of bacterial infections you might get are those of the urinary tract. Bacterial infections are likely to happen if you run out of clean water and food. If you don’t have access to antibiotics, honey works just as well in reducing the level of bacteria in the body. No more burning sensation when you pee next time.

4. Soothes sore throat and cough
When you run out of cough syrups and you have to improvise, honey may just be what you need. The antimicrobial activity of honey will put an end to that persistent cough of yours. It works even better with lemon. Just squeeze the life out of that lemon and add honey to the juice. Stir until thoroughly mixed and then drink it. You’ll notice immediate relief on your sore throat.

5. Removes parasites
In a gloomy scenario where medical care is out of the question, any good survivalist has to make due with what he’s got. If you become infested with worms and other parasites, don’t hesitate to drink honey; you can mix it in water alongside vinegar. The combined action of the acidity in vinegar and the antimicrobial properties of honey can get rid of those nasty parasites living in your gut.

6. Promotes a good night’s sleep
In case of an evacuation and you have to camp outdoors, brace yourself for a lot of sleepless nights. You can rid yourself of all the tossing and turning by dabbing on a little honey on your tongue. Honey increases insulin production which in turn releases serotonin, responsible for alleviating mood and happiness. Serotonin is then converted to melatonin, which plays an important role in the quality and duration of your sleep.

7. Relieves stress and anxiety.
Consequently, the sweet and calming effect of honey can ease the stress that comes with trying to just get through the day alive. Drink honey with tea or simply with water to relieve those worries.

8. Boost energy levels
Because, honey helps reduce stress, it makes a good addition on your drink for a quick energy fix. The glucose in honey, which goes into the bloodstream, provides energy and relieves fatigue in the body. This works best in bug out situations where you need a lot of stamina.

9. Prevents viral infections
If you have managed to get out of a risky situation, you might not be successful the second time around if you don’t take care of your health. Honey is loaded with zinc and selenium, along with other nutrients, to help the immune system in fighting off bacterial and viral infections.

10. Prevents cancer
Honey can also aid in fighting off cancer, one of life’s greatest enemies. Honey is rich in antioxidants, which can prevent the formation of cancer cells as well vitamins and minerals to reduce susceptibility to cancer.

11. Improves blood circulation
Drinking honey is also good for your blood circulation. The glucose gives you energy and raises blood sugar levels. Glucose promotes better blood circulation which prevents capillary damage as well as reducing the risk of heart disease.

12. Prevents colitis
Colitis, a disease that damages the colon can be alleviated with continuous intake of honey. The antioxidants in honey can strengthen the colon’s resistance to colitis and other colon-related diseases. The enzymes in honey that aid in digestion also help in reducing strain in the colon.

13. Improves eyesight
Vitamin A is well known nutrient in improving eyesight. Pairing foods rich with Vitamin A and honey may enhance the vitamin’s effect on your vision, especially in a post-SHTF scenario where electricity is a thing of the past.

14. Strengthens memory
The antioxidants in honey also work in improving brain function. One study shows that a spoonful of honey helps increase memory. You never know when recalling a small piece of information can make a difference between life and death.

15. Aids in digestion
Honey also assists in digestion because it contains a lot of enzymes that participate in the breakdown of food. This is a good alternative from your regular sugar, which can actually impede your digestion.

16. Cures hangovers
Even in post-SHTF situations, you can still enjoy drinking alcohol by making some. And so, when that hangover finally hits you, you can always turn to honey for help. Fructose accelerates the metabolism of alcohol, easing that incessant head-pounding in no time at all. The key to getting rid of hangovers is hydration

17. Helps absorb calcium
Another special property of honey is it aids in absorbing calcium the bones, based on a study conducted in Indiana. This reduces the risk of acquiring osteoporosis. On the contrary, the use of commercial sugar contributes to calcium leakage.

BONUS
Surprisingly, even with all the benefits mentioned above, there are still a lot of practical uses for honey.

18. Prevents hair loss
For those with thinning hair, it’s best to start adding honey to your hair regimen because there are also reports that demonstrate honey’s ability to improve hair loss. Honey can be used to target damaged, unhealthy hair and the fungal infections associated with baldness. For men desperate to hide those bald spots, a dab of honey on your scalp won’t hurt.

Tip of the Week:
In the research I have been gathering for our health and wellness newsletters, I came across an awesome tip I wanted to share with you.
 
A great fruit and vegetable skin wash off pesticides, wax, etc off  is to use hydrogen peroxide.   Soak in bowl/container with 1/4 to 1/3 cup hydrogen peroxide & place fruit/veggie in container and fill with water.  May need an upside down lid with handle to hold produce in water.   Soak for few minutes, rinse off and eat.
A cheap and healthy produce wash

Dixie Nielsen’s Healing Journey:

It is amazing how wonderfully our bodies were made.  Our job is to protect our body and learn how to be kind and good to our bodies.    I sure hope you are learning how to do this.   Our diets need to be re-evaluated quickly and changed.
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s on ultrasound 6 years ago.   Listening and transcribing the videos for the newsletter woke me up that my body is being attacked by my immune system.
When I eat any gluten (wheat, noodles, flour, pizza, crackers etc) my immune system’s army takes off to attack this invader and kills the gluten, then like a good army will do, my immune army searches through my body looking for any gluten that might have gotten away so it can be killed.    Well it finds an exact duplicate which is my thyroid gland.   So my immune army attacks my thyroid to kill it.  After years of this the thyroid gland is killed.
Reason for this is because of what is called molecular mimicry where gluten looks exactly the same as my thyroid gland tissue – thus it is attacked with each bite of gluten.
These series are life saving.   Please share them with others.
I am actually transcribing another autoimmune series and I will have these printed up for us to read in the near future.
 
Summer is arriving, enjoy the sweet smells, kids that will be home for summer and family time around the fire pit or on picnics.   …

The episodes I had planned for our newsletters have become corrupt, so until I can get updated episodes, we will share other topics.
 
Since we are so blessed this spring with the beautiful yellow flowers in our yards –  Dandelions –  I wanted to share some fun things with you in this newsletter.  They are Lamb’s Quarter  and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s perspective on them is:  “What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.”
 
My morning starts by looking across my back yard and I get to enjoy the view of our  bumper crop of beautiful yellow  Dandelions ( placed there by nature)  – then I remembered my mother’s dandelion recipes.
 
So lets make some Dandelion recipes.  .
 
 

.

You need  enough for 2 cups of yellow dandelion petals. so go pick some.Note on the dandelions:  Even though many recipes tell us to rinse them first, do not do this.   Pull the pedals off the flower heads first because once they get wet it is horrible to get off the flower heads.  I put them all in my salad spinner after rinsing to remove as much water as I can.
Dandelion Bread…… Yummy
Mmm! dandelion bread. The recipe is here (Food Storage and Survival).  Your bread may come out a bit more yellow if you use the holds of organic eggs.It’s a dense, moist, heavy bread.  Good to slather on some butter, honey or jam.  I’ll admit, it requires some work removing those petals, but some of us have many little helping hands who would be more than willing to pull off those yellow pedals.  My mom paid the grandkids 50 cents a bag full of dandelion heads so she could make many loaves of this bread.     The loaves are not real tall, but have a good flavor.  The bread has a different but wonderful flavor.   And so good for us.If you pick a bit too many dandelions, put the extras went in the freezer.  from this you can make dandelion tea.
 
Did you know the stems of dandelions can used and eaten in place of noodles or mixed in with your regular  noodles?
 
Now here are 16 more Dandelion Recipes

1. Dandelion Root Coffee— I’m dying to try this! Although I will admit, my hubby is a bit skeptical. 

2. How to Cook Fresh Dandelion Roots— Cook ’em up and eat ’em like carrots.

3.  Dandelion Root Herbal Tea— Roast the roots first to add greater depth of flavor

4. Dandelion Root Tincture– “Dandelion has been used historically to detoxify the kidneys and liver, reduce swelling, fight skin problems, alleviate digestive discomfort, fight fever, improve vision problems, and prevent diabetes…”

5. How to Harvest and Preserve Dandelion Roots for Later— Use your dehydrator to enjoy the benefits of dandelions all year long.

Dandelion Greens

6. Dandelion Greens with Double Garlic— If it has garlic, you just can’t go wrong

7. Wild Spring Green Pizza— Is this gorgeous or what?!

8. Creamy Quesadillas with Fresh Greens— Make these kid-friendly quesadillas with your favorite foraged, edible green.

 
 
 
 
 

Spinach Quesadilla Recipe

9. Dandelion Greens Salad— Mix dandelion greens in with other spring greens for a nutritious salad twist.

10. Dandelion Green and Red Potato Salad— A lovely side dish for a springtime meal springtime meal

11. Dandelion Pumpkin Seed Pesto— Use those greens as a basil substitute in this unique pesto twist.

12. Wilted Dandelion Greens with Toasted Mustard— An elegant side dish from Nourished Kitchen.

13. Dandelion Wine Recipe— “Dandelion flower wine is therapeutic to the kidneys and digestive system.  Very medicinal
 

14. Dandelion Syrup Recipe— Move over maple! There’s a new syrup in town.

15. Dandelion Blossom Cookies Recipe— I bet your kids won’t be able to figure out the “surprise ingredient”…

16. Dandelion Jelly Recipe— And you can preserve it to enjoy for later too!Credit: Simply Canning17. Fried Dandelion Recipe— Breaded dandelions? Who woulda thought?!
So become a kid again, and go pick dandelions.

 

 

Disclaimer:
Do not use any Dandelions from anywhere spray has been applied, even a yard away the wind and spray spreads into the next yards.    Maybe country areas, school yards should not be sprayed yet, but ask.   I am sure there are neighborhood homes who would  love their safe Dandelions deheaded.
 
Also if your front yard is along a pet walk area

Starting next week I will go into health and wellness information sharing with you a 9 week series which you will find so exciting and it is what we all need to learn and put to work.  All about autoimmune diseases and reversing them.
 
But because we are getting ready for summer vacation, I wanted to touch on how we can prepare to keep up our kids learning skills
 
With kids soon to be out of school, it is a good time to continue their learning skills while on this summer vacation.  Gather and have a family time to keep them learning and this gives the entire family some gathering fun time together.    I can smell the coconut oil popcorn and apples, yummy.
 
The memories we make as a family on game night are among the ones we all cherish most. With so many game options it can be difficult to know which ones are winners and which ones are duds. These are the games that our family loves most. Your family will love them too!
 
 
This is a great card game, and in all honesty I still really love this game. Kids as young as 6 can play along.
 

This is a game that can get a bit heated, but it is so much fun !

This is another great card game that even younger kids can play. It can get long at times, but it can easily be modified to be shorter for the younger kids by only working through some of the 10 phases rather than having to get them all.

Yahtzee is a classic, but there’s a reason why it’s a classic. Everyone loves it, and young kids have the same chance at winning as older kids since it is primarily a game of chance – it’s just rolling the dice.

 
Now this can really get competitive Older kids really get into this one, and it is great for younger kids to learn spatial relations and really thinking through from start to finish.

 

 

This is a junior version, which makes it something that we can all in the family can play together. There is a regular version for older kids and adults

Although it’s been around for a while, Clue is a great game for reasoning skills. This usually isn’t a large family game where an entire family will gather and play,  usually it is played with 3 or 4 kids or adults at one time.

 

Ticket to Ride is awesome. This is one where younger kids need a bit of help, but I am always surprised to see what they can really do on their own. There are all kinds of versions of this one, this is just the classic one.

 
 
Catan is more on an “older kid game.   It is a fun game to play with other couples too.   It is a game that kids as young as 8 or 9  years old can really grasp.  It’s deeply rooted in strategy, which is such an important skill for kids to start using at a young age. T
 
here are all kinds of different versions and expansions. This has been a favorite for more than 20 years.

Well, what a spring surprise with the winter snow fall total in one or two days?     I told the Robin’s not to head back so soon……..
 
This week I thought for the fun of it, I would send you a fun video on tricks from our Grannies we can still do today.   It is on Youtube so you may have to click off the ad, and there will be several other fun options on the right side to click on for ideas also.
Some of these would be fun to do with our kids too.
 
And, of course we all know that we do not use microwave ovens so we can skip how to clean them.  I love the surprised look on our guests faces when they open my microwave oven door and find all of my measuring cups, spoons and funnels inside.   I get to explain how horrible these ovens are to our health.   It is unplugged so won’t work anyway.  Came with the house and so I make good use of it, and it is so handy at eye level where I do not have to lug out items to get them out of a deep cupboard.
 
Enjoy spring, tulips will be up and smiling soon.

Are you getting enough omega-3 fats in your diet? Long-chain omega-3 fats are essential for healthy brain function. They also lower inflammation and protect your heart. These fats only come from seafood (fish, shellfish, and seaweed). If you are vegetarian, the best ways to ensure that you meet your long-chain omega-3 fat needs are to eat seaweed daily, such as a seaweed salad. More convenient would be to take a DHA supplement that is extracted from seaweed. Aim for 500 mg of DHA daily. Please click LIKE and Share #seaweed #omega3fats

[Health Benefits of Almonds] About 1 ounce of almonds have 1/8 of our daily protein needs. Almonds help lower cholesterol by increasing levels of vitamin E in the plasma and red blood cells.

HOMEMADE ALL PURPOSE CLEANER
2 cups white vinegar
2 cups water
1 teaspoon natural dish soap (not castile soap)  I use
    Seventh Generation liquid dish soap
30 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
20 drops of Melaleuca Essential Oil
Put in a quart spray bottle, shake to mix and combine well.   Spray on counters, tile, sinks, toilets etc.

FRESH MINT WINDOW AND MIRROR CLEANER
3 cups distilled water
1/4 cup Rubbing alcohol
1/4 cup vinegar  (I like white vinegar)
20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
mix in 1 quart spray bottle.  Shake to mix and combine.

Wipe dry with newspaper or paper towels, but my very favorite dry wiper is coffee filters.   I buy a cheaper brand in the larger 8 ounce size which fits my hand perfectly and always streak free clean
 
 CITRUS SOFT SCRUB
1 cup baking soda
1/4 cup liquid castile soap (I use plain castile without     fragrance)
10 drops Lemon essential oil
10 drops lime essential oil
10 drops orange essential oil
Mix together to form a paste, sometimes you may need to add a little more castile soap to get the right amount of paste.
I put it in a small plastic storage container with lid to keep for next use.    Apply with rag or sponge to stove top, oven, sink, etc.  Works great on grimy sinks and grimy hands too.     Rinse clean with water and wipe dry.
 
DEEP CLEAN TOILET SCRUB
1/2 cup baking soda
1/3 cup liquid dishwashing liquid (not liquid dish soap – has to be dishwashing soap)
1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
30 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
3/4 cup water
Mix together in a squeeze type bottle.   then squirt into the toilet.  Scrub good and let sit for 20 minutes.
(*in Florida our toilets get a pink film which happens every 6-7 days, I do not like to use Comet so I came up with this mixture which cuts the pink film good and naturally)
 
POO SPRAY
1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol
30 to 40 drops of any combination of essential oil of your choice – I like wintergreen, peppermint, lemongrass, Thieves
water to fill
pour rubbing alcohol into a 3 ounces spray container and water to fill the container.  Give it a good shake and you are ready and no need to shake before each use.   3-4 sprays is enough to cover any stink odor above or below the bowl.  Works great.
 
NOTE FOR HAND SIZE HAND SANITIZER SPRAY, FOR IN PURSE, CAR, IN KITCHEN, ETC:
I also use the same size 3 ounce bottle   (like Thieves hand spray bottle) and 10-20 drops of Thieves essential oil  and 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol, and I have my own Thieves hand sanitizer.
I use on steering wheel, grocery cart handles, take into restaurants to use on hands before eating, take into public bathrooms for extra sanitized protection.
 
SHOWER SPRAY for after showers/baths or daily spay
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
1 teaspoon natural liquid dish soap (not castile soap)
15 drops Lime essential oil
15 drops Melaleuca  essential oil
Mix in quart size spray bottle.  Spray on shower doors, shower walls and faucets, after showers, it is a preventive spray and helps keep build up from being a problem, also good for cutting any build up.
I have even used the citrus soft scrub on inside showers for hard water build up.
 
TUB/SHOWER CLEANING GEL
This is especially good for scum, dirt, etc when kids come in from outside very dirty and leave scum ring on tub.
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup natural liquid dish soap (not castile soap)

Heat the vinegar in a small pan on the stove till hot, but not boiling.   Gently stir in the liquid dish soap to mix and pour into the squeeze bottle
Squeeze onto tub and shower, shower floor, drains, faucets, shower head etc and let sit for 1-3 hours
Rub with a scrubber, but this does not require a lot of hard pressing to remove scum.   Works better than any tub or shower cleaner on the market
 
LEMON CARPET REFRESHER
1 cup baking soda
30 drops of Lemon essential oil
I put this in a quart mason jar and use a parmesan cheese container plastic top.   Shake to mix and cover with lid and close tightly.   Let this mixture sit for 8 hours.
Sprinkle on carpeting and let sit overnight.   Vacuum up in the morning.   Great for stale or smelly carpets.  Also great to use when home is closed up during wintertime.

I like Thieves essential oil, lemon and basil, peppermint, clove and nutmeg, orange and citrus fresh.
Pour into jar with foaming pump cover and add water to fill.    Great to have in bathrooms, laundry room and kitchen.
 
 
GOO/GUM/ STICKER GOOP/CRAYON CLEANER-REMOVER
Lemon essential oil
Use finger to rub lemon oil over the goo, gum etc.
Quickly removes sticker sticky glue from labels.  Great for removing sticky sticker glue from car windows etc.
 
LAUNDRY SCENT AND FABRIC SOFTNER
Pour a 3lb. box of kosher salt or epsom salt or sea salt to a large bowl or container
Then add 20-25 drops of lavender essential oil or orange, or lemon, peppermint, wintergreen, clove -or your favorite essential oil or blend of oils.
Whisk together, making sure to spread the oils throughout the salt.
Pour softener mix into an airtight container. I prefer the large half gallon Mason Jar for storing mine.
To use add 1/2 cup to your laundry and wash as usual. This formula is safe for newer HE washers.
Save the scented fabric sheets for keeping mice out of garage or shed.  Mice are smart, they do not want to be around the chemicals.

FOODS TO ENJOY & FOODS TO AVOID

 
 
              THESE ARE THE YES FOODS:
Low glycemic carb vegetables,
We need to AVOID these High Glycemic foods.
 THESE ARE THE NO FOODS:
 Sugar
Corn
 Flour
 Rice
White potatoes
Too many bananas. grapes, cherries, watermelon
Raisins
Many breakfast cereals, including puffed rice, corn flakes, etc
Bread
Wheat
Soda, all soda
Cookies and crackers
Fruit juices
 
These high glycemic foods make your sugar spike way high.   Never eat corn, soybeans (estrogen) or canola oil.  Always try to eat organically raised foods.
 
Our ground water and municipal water contain pesticide Roundup plus a lot more poison.  AND, due to lies & lobbying of Monsanto,  CALIFORNIA has just

 

 

set limits for  Roundup in their drinking water to 1000 times higher than the amount shown to increase breast cancer growth by up to 1300%
 
Today our modern fruits are much higher in sugar not at all like fruits 100 years ago.
 
Most grains are too rich in carbs to be too good for us unless change them to be resistant,  by cooking and then cooling.  Same with potatoes. The original potato from Peru was a fine food.. Now they are a  high glycemic potato unless you boil it and cool it making it resistant.
 
Crops are now being picked in Florida &  we watched workers toss dead plant tops in back of one truck and crops for human consumption into back of another truck.   Plants were sprayed with Herbicide glyphosate which is the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup®,  to kill the vegetation for faster crop harvesting.   Humans are going to eat this harvest sprayed with glyphosate which is a major cause in the rise of chronic diseases in last 20 years, Breast cancer, testicular cancer, brain cancer –
Today, glyphosate is sprayed directly on crops like corn, soybeans, sugar beets, canola, wheat, oats, barley as well as many fruits, nuts and vegetables, even spinach.
 
The next time you go grocery shopping & fill your cart with items containing bread, pasta, cereals made with GMO wheat, corn  & processed foods containing canola and soybean oil think about the following health conditions glyphosate has been shown to cause: ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, birth defects, breast cancer, celiac disease, gluten intolerance, chronic kidney disease, colitis, heart disease, hypothyroidism, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, ALS, MS Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, pregnancy problems, obesity, respiratory illnesses.
 
And it is not what we are last week, but it has built up in what we’ve eaten in the last 20 years !!!!!  There is a huge cumulative affect to this pesticide.
 
 …. You can make your own homemade weed killer using vinegar and salt. spray over weeds for perfect results and no chemicals….

Reduce the aging pathway and those diseases will take care of themselves.  That’s all connected to how we eat.   The problem is we like to eat, and eating is critical to keeping us alive.
You’ve heard of fasting and how it encourages the body to live longer.
In my research I found both Dr Mercola and Cell biologist Valter Longo have articles on testing Yeast and aging.
Here is the site to read Dr Mercola’s findings.  And below this I will write up Valter Longo’s findings.    It is all related to SUGAR…

How a Fasting-Mimicking Diet Can Help You Live Longer

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017
 
 
We all are aware of Dr. Mercola, but we need to also know  Valter Longo (who is 50 yrs old and lives in Genoa, Italy) He is an Italian-American biogerontologist and cell biologist known for his studies on the role of starvation and nutrient response genes on cellular protection aging and diseases and for proposing that longevity is regulated by similar genes and mechanisms in our bodies  This man  carried out testing on yeast and aging – to find healthy aging..  He started with yeast because yeast live just a few days and all 6000 of their genes are known. It’s easy to make mutations and delete a gene and see what happens. 
 
Here is what Valter Longo found
 In yeast, if all nutrients are taken away from the yeast except for water, they live twice as long.   Then if nutrients are added back,  one at a time, the only one that accelerates aging… the ONLY one, is SUGAR.   Sugar activates two aging genes  – and inactivates (stops) enzymes that protect against oxidation.     Boom, there he was. He found a key pathway in the gene signaling pathway that caused aging.
He discovered that dwarf yeast and mice lived 2-6 times longer, so he sought out populations of dwarf humans in Ecuador,  the  Laron Syndrome folks, who are tiny dwarfs that smoke, drink, eat fried food and don’t get any diseases of aging like diabetes and heart disease.

 

Studying that population found that their defect in their growth hormone gene forced their body to go into constant regeneration mode. Studies of their brains showed that their brains were much younger in function than the rest of their bodies. That was the key. Regeneration mode. What on earth was going on? He suddenly found his ideas being accepted. Even the Pope wanted in, and he took some of his Laron buddies off to Rome to review his finding.

Little People of Ecuador: Laron Syndrome May … – NBC News

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/aging/little-peopleecuador-laron

Watch video · In the remote villages of Ecuador, 100 very small people may hold the key to a huge medical breakthrough. They all suffer from Laron Syndrome, an incredibly rare genetic disorder that stops them from growing taller than 4 feet but also seems to protect them against cancer and diabetes and maybe even …

Starting with that research, Longo noted that aging is the risk factor that is common to all disease.  The older you get, the higher your chances of getting……..you name it, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s.

So, start with that problem. Reduce the aging pathway and those diseases will take care of themselves. That’s why the Laron stayed “healthy”, despite all their bad habits. So, can we duplicate that by changing the way we eat?  We sure can  – Yup.
Sugar causes  destruction of cells  in the body and increases the level of insulin which can cause cell death.  This is the root cause of aging in humans.   Simply, sugar turns on cell aging and extra protein turns on growth hormone cell aging.
 Alter those two (sugar and extra protein) and presto, change, you have gotten to the root cause of aging in humans. That discovery, that these two pathways are fundamental to all life on this planet, starting with yeast and moving all the way up to humans, is Longo’s key contribution to modern understanding of aging.
 I’m enthralled with the beauty of creation. From yeast up to humans, we can follow the same biological processes down at the cellular level, and then follow them up through all biology. The Laron People have a terrible mutation in that they end up being only 3-4 feet tall, and then live to 90 with no diseases. And all of this is connected to how we eat

Sniffing /inhaling grapefruit oil can decrease food intake and stimulate fat breakdown if you add a drop or two to your hot coffee, hot tea or water and stir it in.

Orange oil can help with depression.   Lavender oil for burns and even for gangrene

inhaling peppermint oil can boost energy levels

Clary sage oil decreases cortisol
Rosemary oil can increase memory

inhaling lemon oil can decrease nausea and Neorli oil can decrease pain.

You can just simply open up a bottle and sniff the oil, place some in palm of hands and rub hands together and take in a breath and sniff in, or diffuse the oils in the room.

Very effective for people fighting anxiety and panic attacks or stress and for nausea

If you are diffusing, be cautious as some oils can stain the counter top, it can even get up on top of your fan blades in ceiling fans as the oils will mix with the dust in the air, and if you brush the dust off of the fan blades it can fall on the carpeting and stain the carpet, so be cautious with using these oils on surfaces.

Get a 2 ounce spray bottle and put in 10 drops of witch hazel, 10 drops of organic grain alcohol and 10 drops of an essential oil, I use Thieves oil for its sanitizing and cleaning properties (the grain alcohol is optional and can be left out.   I often put 10 drops of Thieves oil in a 2 ounce spray bottle (like the one Thieves spray comes in) and just add 10 drops witch hazel, 10 drops thieves and fill with water, shake and you have a good spray for hands, feet, even spray in mouth and throat to kill germs.  I also keep a spray bottle inside back garage door and spray the bottoms of my shoes before I come into the house.   We walk on all kinds of horrible germs and our shoes are so dirty, then we walk into the house and at some point we are walking barefoot or stocking feet and germs are on our skin.  Remember our skin is our 3rd lung.     What goes on the skin goes into the body.    We do not wear shoes in the house, but a person does need to walk into the house to get shoes off usually.    Think about walking in your bedroom area with street shoes and then walking barefoot .    This keeps germs out of house.   In Japan you do not wear any shoes in the homes, they know germ control.

Actually walking barefoot is so important.   There has been studies done which has proven that so many athletic runners actually die young with heart issues, because they wear tight tennis shoes most of the time, even having metal in toe area for protection.    This does not allow the magnetic connection to happen in the heart which a person gets when they walk barefoot or in stocking feet.    We need to be grounded to the earth, we are earth bodies.    In good weather, every morning I walk across my back yard barefoot especially before the dew is gone.    This grounds my body and is heart healthy.   We actually need to walk in dirt and on grass.   We need to get our hands in good dirt too.  So do our children.

Sleepy time spritzer:  10 drops lavender, 10 drops Roman Chamomile, 5 drops Vetiver, 10 drops organic grain alcohol or witch hazel, fill remainder of bottle with water, gently shake and spry your pillow and you will have a restful sleep.   This is also good for mood boost, energy boost in morning or for nausea issues.  Get rid of you perfumes and use this for your spray perfume.  I love Yang Yang for a perfume.

You can order an inhaler on Amazon which looks like a lipstick tube.  Inside is a cotton tube and you put 20 drops of any essential oil in a glass or ceramic bowl/cup and then dip the cotton tube into the essential oil and it will draw the oil up into the cotton tube, and then close the lid up over it.   This will fit in your purse to inhale for sniffles, energy boost etc.    When driving I use one with peppermint which keeps a driver really alert.  Thieves for cold, flu, viral issues – etc.

You can use essential oils as a steamer by putting a few drops of Eucalyptus and a few drops of Peppermint in boiling water, then put a towel over your head, like  tent, and breathe in the oils which will clear the sinus.

Inhaling essential oils are a powerful tool for your health.

We need to be aware that there are some precautions we need to take when diffusing essential oils, always use a diffuser in a well ventilated room, especially around pets and children.   Do not put a pet in a kennel, close the door and have a diffuser running.  Do not put the diffuser right next to a baby crib or next to a child’s bed.  Make sure the door is open or a window is open a bit if it is spring like weather.

Remember, use the oils that work for you.  We are all different and what works for me might not work for you.  Experiment and see which oils your body wants and will use.

Children or women who have been abused or went through a very traumatic experience, a scent will re-trigger the event.   So if for example lavender was the scent the person smelled,, this could re-trigger this event all over.    So use oils that work with, not against the system.

On the positive side, say you smell a rose and it reminds you of the most wonderful day you and your spouse had, well smelling rose oil can trigger that joyful memory.

Remember, 150 years ago, this was all that many people had to enjoy, burning leaves and flower buds,. crushing leaves and flowers for incense to smell or drink.  Now we are so fortunate to have these precious concentrated compounds of essential oils at our fingertips that have a direct effect on our brains and body chemistry.

Some real life application tips when we think about our day.    Lets start with bedtime, set up the diffuser in your room and the children’s rooms using the sleepy time or restful sleep recipe 3 drops lavender, 3 drops Roman Chamomile, 1 drops Vetiver essential oils.
 
Fill the diffuser with water,  add the essential oils, turn on the diffuser 10 to 20 minutes before bedtime and run through the night.   ,
 
Kids love a bedtime essential oil massage time, on the back of the shoulders, along the spine, bottom of the feet  and take whatever is left on your hand and rub into their hair and then cup your hands right over their nose and let them breathe the oils in deeply.   The kids will tell you what oil they really like, and each little body is different and may want different oils than the other child wants.
Get a roller top for your essential oil bottles, and use an empty bottle to fill with sleepy time recipe (I use an empty lavender oil bottle as the oils will still be strong inj that empty bottle.   Then I put in 6 drops of Lavender oil,  drops Clary sage oil,  1 drop sweet Marjoram oil in this empty bottle, fill with a carrier oil (olive oil, grape seed oil) put roller top on and shake.
 
A really good blend for children who have had a really busy crazy day, is blending Peppermint and Lavender oils together in carrier oils and massaged in their bodies, this is wonderful for bedtime.
You can also use any of these blends on your own neck, shoulders, wrists, ankles and legs while reflecting on your day and focus on at least one thing you were grateful for today, and remember to thank God for this wonderful day.
 
Do the kids massage before your turn on the diffuse in the room, or do the massage in another room – otherwise you or the child will become sleepy before the end of this massage routine.   So with children, maybe the rule is when Mom leaves the room turn on the diffuser.
 
I love topical application because the child and you are both smelling the oils and getting them into your system.
Our brains take in the oils and sends the oils to just where you need them in the body.
 
Now how about our morning routine with oils, you can prepare and preset the diffusers in the living areas and kitchen the previous night so they are all ready for early morning when you wake up and get busy in the kitchen.  I start all of them at the same time in the morning so they are diffusing in the main rooms.   My favorite morning diffusing oils are 10 drops Peppermint oil, 5 drops sweet orange or orange oil, 5 drops spearmint oil and 5 drops clove oil.   I call it my performance booster blend. Sometimes I will add 5 drops of Brain Power too.    This could be put into a bowl (2 drops each) and then the cotton tube from an inhaler dipped in to saturate the cotton and close lid, and you have an all day performance booster inhaler.    This starts your day, and what a wonderful aroma to your kitchen or living rooms to smell these oils.
 
You can do an immune booster diffuser recipe using and of the Eucalyptus oils, Thieves oil, Immu power, etc.
These oils help the body balance and homeostasis.  Remember Peppermint oil can be used for both calming and energy boosting blends.
 
We have to find what oil or what blend works for you
You are creating an environment around your home every day. and we can enjoy an abundant day ahead for us.
 
I like the rule of:  Proper planning prevents poor performance  (called the  5 P’s).   By filling the diffusers just before heading to bed all I need to do in the morning is press the on button and it is all set. Same with the children’s school lunches, I made them the night before.  Mornings can be such a rush, and you do not want emotions or frustrations erupting as the kids go off to school or your husband out the door to work, or for yourself.
 
Enjoy the oils in good health…………

apples-pears(NaturalHealth365) Around 800,000 people per year have a stroke – in the United States alone – and, this avoidable health problem is the fifth leading cause of death in the nation. Those who survive a stroke are often left with a serious disability, including the loss of muscle functioning and motor control in portions of the body.

However, exciting research results out of Holland show that the simple act of adding more apples and pears to your diet can help to prevent incidents of stroke by up to 52 percent. The researchers believe that the high content of quercetin, a potent antioxidant in white-fleshed fruits is what gives these foods their healing power.

Of course, it should be noted that, most fruits and vegetables that have white flesh tend to be loaded with quercetin – not just apples and pears. {but, there’s more good news to this story – below)

The more apples and pears you eat, the lower your stroke risk

For the study, 20,000 people kept detailed records about the foods they ate daily over a 10 year period. When the data was analyzed, it showed participants who ate high amounts of fruit with white flesh, in particular apples and pears, showed a 52 percent reduced risk of having a stroke.

For every additional 25 g of white fruits and vegetables a person consumed, their risk of stroke fell by 9 percent. That old adage about ‘an apple (or more) a day keeps the doctor away’ seems to also apply to strokes.

Quercetin, in apples and pears, is the key to reducing blood clots

The biggest stroke risk factors include high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Smoking is also a risk factor, and quitting smoking while also eating more apples and pears has been shown to reduce stroke risk even further.

In addition, family history plays a role in overall stroke risk, but lifestyle choices (without a doubt) can make all the difference in avoiding a stroke in your older years.

The quercetin found in high amounts in white-fleshed fruits is known for its ability to support cellular health and functioning. It also inhibits inflammatory cytokines production – which is known to assist in blood clotting regulation.

We should also remember that clogged arteries are a main cause of a stroke – so, diet is a sensible way to maintain a healthy circulatory system.

Natural (safe) ways to dramatically reduce your risk of a stroke

In addition to apples and pears: bananas, grapefruit, onions and legumes contain quercetin. However, taking a quercetin supplement can also help to bring you anti-stroke benefits.

The recommended dose of quercetin is generally 250 mg per day, but you should check with your doctor to determine the ideal dose for you.

Other foods and supplements that can help to create a dietary defense against stroke include omega-3 fats, CoQ10, garlic, pomegranate, citrus fruits, vinpocetine and green tea.  Naturally, engaging in regular physical activity and maintaining an ideal body weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels will also help to reduce your stroke risk.

For the past few weeks we have had our focus on viral infections, specifically the flu virus.    But, this week I wanted to share with you about benefits of PEPPERMINT essential oil.  This is taken from an article by Ty Bollinger via thetruthaboutcancer.net 


Till next week, be in good health,

 

In a hurry? Click here to read the Article Summary…

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is one of the most loved essential oils. And no wonder, as it’s incredibly beneficial for so many diverse health problems. Read on to discover different ways to use peppermint essential oil to improve your health (some of which are rather surprising!), along with what research has uncovered about this amazingly healing oil.

Peppermint Through the Ages

It is believed that prehistoric people used peppermint medicinally, but of course there are no records in existence for us to draw upon. Peppermint is one of the world’s oldest medicines though. It has a long history of documented use, going back as far as Roman times when the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder described its use. Ancient Romans and Greeks used peppermint to flavor food, wine, and sweets. Aristotle mentions peppermint being used as an aphrodisiac! The ancient Egyptians were also known to have grown and used peppermint.

Peppermint begins to be mentioned for therapeutic uses in Europe in the mid-18th century. Traditional herbalists used peppermint mainly for relieving digestive difficulties such as stomach aches, gas, diarrhea, and indigestion. It was also used in the treatment of colds, flu, nervous disorders, cholera, and to ease tension headaches. Peppermint is still being used for many of these complaints today.

How is Peppermint Essential Oil Made?

Peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of the plant. The phytochemicals (natural plant-based chemicals) found within a good quality, medicinal grade peppermint essential oil are noteworthy. They include menthol, which is the most abundant phytochemical in peppermint oil, up to 50%. Also important are menthone, menthofuran, menthyl acetate, 1.8-cineole, pulegone, perillyl alcohol, limonene, beta-pinene, and beta-caryophyllene. Many of these phytochemicals are currently being studied for their anti-cancer benefits.

Peppermint also contains flavonoids, primarily eriocitrin, luteolin, and hesperidin. As with many plants, the phytochemical profile of peppermint varies according to the season it is harvested and environmental growing conditions.

13 of the Best Uses (from A-Z) for Peppermint Essential Oil

1. Anti-cancer:

There exists a multitude of research studies on peppermint. Much of the anti-cancer benefits of peppermint are due to its phytochemical content. Limonene, beta-pinene, and beta-caryophyllene are all highly anti-cancer phytochemicals with plenty of anti-cancer research on them. In a 2012 animal study reported in the journal PloS Onepeppermint had cytotoxic effects against lung carcinoma, leukemia, and gastric cancer cells. This same research indicated peppermint was a potent anti-inflammatory, important in cancer because cancer is such a pro-inflammatory process in the body. Researchers also found peppermint to have antioxidant properties.

Another animal study reported in 2014 in the Journal of Oral Pathology & Medicine found that peppermint inhibited the initiation and promotion of tongue cancer in mice. It also showed that peppermint has a chemopreventive (“chemo” means cancer) effect.

A 2015 study released in the American Journal of Cancer Research found that perillyl alcohol (one of the phytochemicals in peppermint, referred to as “POH” in the study) was effective for those with malignant brain tumors. The study reported that “clinical trials in Brazil have explored intranasal POH delivery as an alternative to circumvent the toxic limitations of oral administration. In these trials, patients with recurrent malignant gliomas were given comparatively small doses of POH via simple inhalation through the nose. Results from these studies show this type of long-term, daily chemotherapy to be well tolerated and effective.”

These researchers agreed that perillyl alcohol had chemopreventive activity, suppressed tumor growth, and had antiangiogenic properties (the ability of tumors to develop their own blood supply to feed them) both in animals and humans.

An older 2011 in vitro (test tube) study reported in the Internal Journal of Toxicology indicated that peppermint had cytotoxic (“cyto” means cell) activity. It also had anti-cancer activity against six different cancer cell lines − cervical, breast, acute T-cell leukemia, bladder, pancreatic, and colorectal cancer.

Menthol has also recently been studied for its anti-cancer effects, most notably against prostate cancer cells. Two studies reported in 2012 that menthol influences gene expression, has cytotoxic activity, and inhibits the proliferation (spread) of prostate cancer cells. A study reported in 2009 revealed that menthol enhances the anti-proliferative activity of vitamin D3 in prostate cancer.

2. Antimicrobial:

There are a number of studies attesting to the antimicrobial properties of peppermint, making it great for wound healing, respiratory infections, tonsillitis, bronchitis, laryngitis. One particular study found peppermint oil to be potent against E. coli. It also inhibited bacteria exhibiting resistance to antibiotic drugs, Shigella sonei, Staphylococcus aureus, and Micrococcus flavus.Hospitals, take note!

3. Digestive Aid:

Peppermint oil is amazingly healing for the digestive tract. There are many studies on peppermint oil and its ability to relieve the symptoms of IBS  (irritable bowel syndrome). A 2007 Italian study reported in the Journal of Digestive Liver Disease found a 50% reduction in the symptoms of IBS for 75 percent of patients who used peppermint oil. That is truly significant! Peppermint has  powerful antispasmodic properties, which is probably why it works so well. It is effective for stomach aches, flatulence, and diarrhea.

4. Fever Reduction:

While it isn’t a good idea to break a fever at its very onset (a fever is the body’s way of killing invading microbes), there are times when you may need to step in and reduce it. Peppermint oil works very well for this. See “Tips for Using” below for more on how it works.

5. Fungal Infections:

Fungal infections are problematic and can be difficult to eradicate. Candida albicans is especially hard to get rid of. Recent research (2015) indicated the phytochemicals within peppermint oil exerted powerful anti-fungal activity and was quite effective against candida.

6. Headaches & Migraines:

A 2016 research study in Germany found that topical treatment with peppermint oil was significantly more effective in treatment of tension headaches than a placebo. It was also comparable to the efficacy of acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) and paracetamol (Tylenol). Peppermint oil helps to relieve migraines as well. A 2010 Iranian study on menthol found that pain, nausea, and the other symptoms associated with migraines were much improved by applying menthol to the forehead and temples of 35 patients with migraines.

7. Nausea:

Peppermint has long been used as a treatment for nausea. It is also effective, however, for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. A 2013 study found that both peppermint and spearmint reduced the intensity and frequency of nausea associated with chemotherapy.

8. Pain Relief:

Due in large part to its menthol content, peppermint oil is wonderful for pain relief. Peppermint is good for sore muscles, achy joints, neuralgia, cold sores, fibromyalgia, and many other painful conditions. It appears to work not only by interrupting the pain signal from the sore place to the brain, but also helps to ease pain due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

9. Promotes Hair Regrowth:

A Chinese animal study reported in 2014 in Toxicological Research demonstrated that peppermint essential oil may be helpful for hair loss. Animals were divided into four groups, and saline, jojoba oil, minoxidil and peppermint oil were applied to the skin of shaved mice for 4 weeks. Only the peppermint oil group exhibited a significant increase in skin thickness, hair follicle numbers, depth of hair follicles and hair regrowth. The researchers said that at week three, the peppermint oil “remarkably promoted hair growth.” In fact, the growth was better than saline and jojoba and even greater than the minoxidil (Rogaine), a popular hair regrowth drug. Further, they reported that at week four the peppermint oil showed hair regrowth at about 92%, whereas minoxidil about only at 55%.

10. Radioprotective / Neuroprotective:

2010 research reported in the Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics admitted that radiation-induced damage to normal tissues “restricts the therapeutic doses of radiation that can be delivered to tumors and thereby limits the effectiveness of the treatment.” Researchers found that peppermint protected the testes, gastrointestinal tract, and hematopoietic stem cells in mice. In addition, 2013 research on mice published in Cytotechnology found that peppermint played a significant role in protecting neurons from radiation damage.

11. Respiratory Problems:

Peppermint oil contains vitamins C and A, omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and potassium − all of which are useful for any condition where mucus is present. It is the menthol content, however, which makes peppermint oil so helpful for respiratory problems. It is a natural decongestant (it dissolves mucus). It has natural anti-histamine properties and will not cause sleepiness.

Peppermint also relaxes the muscles of the respiratory tract − it is a natural bronchodilator.  All of these things, combined with its antibacterial and antiviral benefits, make it excellent for colds, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), exercise-induced asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, and flu.

12. Skin Complaints:

Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, peppermint essential oil eases skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. It can ease the pain of sunburn and is excellent for chapped lips. Because of its ability to inhibit bacterial growth and reduce inflammation, it’s also wonderful for acne.

13. Weight Loss:

Inhaling peppermint essential oil can stave off the munchies and help you feel full a little more quickly. A 1994 study reported that inhaling peppermint oil affected the satiety center in the hypothalamus. This was a 6-month study with over 3,000 people, during which time the average weight loss experienced was 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms).

5 Tips For Using Peppermint Essential Oil

  1. For Pain Relief − Massage peppermint oil directly into affected areas. Applied to the skin (transdermally), essential oils are easily absorbed by the body within approximately 20 minutes. See information on dilution in precautions below.
  2. For Respiratory Problems − You can try one of the following techniques:

(a) Diffuse the oil into the room using a cool mist or ultrasonic diffuser. Do not heat essential oils as it diminishes their therapeutic benefits.

(b) Place a drop or two of peppermint oil into the palms of the hands and breathe  in deeply. It will be absorbed into the bloodstream rapidly through the lungs and sinuses. Be careful to avoid the eyes.

(c) For congested sinuses, place one drop of peppermint oil in the palm of your hand, lick it off with your tongue, and then place your tongue on the soft palate (the roof of your mouth). Breathe in. Instant relief!

  1. For Reducing a Fever − in a bowl, put one teaspoon of an organic carrier oil (eg. olive, coconut, or almond), add 1 drop of peppermint essential oil. Mix it and apply the oil to the bottoms of the feet and back of the neck. Check your temperature again in 30 minutes or so − it should be reduced by one or two degrees. See precautions below if working with a child.
  1. For Indigestion or Stomach Ache − rub one drop of peppermint oil across the stomach. You can also take it internally in a capsule with a glass of water. Or simply put one drop in a glass of water and mix it (no, oil and water don’t combine well, but the oil will disperse to a degree) and drink the water.
  1. For Hair Regrowth − do a skin test first on a small patch of skin to ensure your scalp is not overly sensitive to peppermint oil. Wait 30 minutes or so − if no irritation occurs, proceed. In a small glass bowl add two drops of peppermint oil to one tablespoon of a good organic carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut. Massage the oil into the scalp and leave for at least half an hour. Remember the research study above showed the best results after week four, so be persistent. Be sure no oil gets in the eyes.

Precautions When Working With Peppermint Essential Oil

If you intend to use peppermint essential oil medicinally, it’s important that your essential oil supplier knows what they are doing when growing and distilling the herb. Only buy from a trusted source and organic is best.

Be aware that peppermint essential oil is extremely condensed. One drop of peppermint oil has the menthol content of over 20 cups of peppermint tea. Be extremely cautious when using peppermint on or near the face, especially with children. Never apply essential oils anywhere near eyes or ears. Be sure to dilute with an organic carrier oil if you have sensitive skin.

Always dilute peppermint for children. It is recommended to avoid using peppermint oil with children under two unless you absolutely need to (for instance, for reducing fever). From six months up to six years of age, use one drop of peppermint essential oil to 4 teaspoons of carrier oil. For children over six years, elderly adults, or pregnant women, use 1 drop of peppermint oil per teaspoon of carrier oil.

It is not recommended to use any essential oil as a stand-alone treatment for cancer or the other disorders mentioned in this article. However, when used in combination with other therapies, both natural and conventional, essential oils can play a wonderful role in the healing process.

According to Dr. Mercola, the world we are living in is stress filled with mostly mental stress, this can lead to insulin resistance.

Stress does not act as a singular force on your body but rather acts like a snowball rolling down a mountain, gradually building in size and speed until it’s virtually impossible to control. As stress builds in your body, it influences everything from your mood and brain function to your heart health and risk of both acute illness and chronic disease, including cancer.

When you become stressed your body also secretes cortisol and glucagon, both of which affect your blood sugar levels as well.1 On a metabolic level, when you’re stressed and your body enters “fight or flight” mode, glucose is released in order to give your muscles the energy needed to run and escape whatever is threatening you. In the modern day, there’s a good chance that threat is more mental than physical, however, which means you won’t need that extra energy after all.

The end result is that your body must produce more insulin to keep your blood sugar levels in check, and when you’re stressed out, your blood sugar levels will probably stay elevated much longer than they would otherwise, ultimately promoting weight gain and Type 2 diabetes.

Blood Sugar Levels Take Six Times Longer to Return to Normal When You’re Stressed

 
According to an article on GreenMedInfo.com, patients with diabetes no longer need to rely on drugs to manage their blood sugar. Eating the right combination of “food[s], herbs, and spices” can help boost their insulin sensitivity.

The hormone insulin makes cells “open up” and take in glucose from the blood, but with insulin resistance, cells are desensitized to insulin. This forces the body to produce more glucose, which cells refuse to take in. The end result is your insulin levels rising above the normal levels.

Chronically high insulin levels may lead to “rapid weight gain, premature aging, high blood pressure, heart disease, and higher cancer risks,” and, eventually, type-2 diabetes.

These eight herbs, spices, and foods can help restore your cells’ sensitivity to insulin. (Related: Research: Reduce insulin resistance with omega-3 fatty acids.)

  1. Berries — Studies have confirmed that after eating berries, the body “needs less insulin for sugar balance after a meal.” Eat strawberries, bilberries, lingonberries, chokeberries, cranberries, and blackberries.
  2. Berberine –– A bitter compound found in the roots of several plants like goldenseal, barberry, and Oregon grape, studies show that berberine is almost as effective as prescription diabetes drugs. Participants who took berberine “significantly decreased their fasting blood glucose, and their after-meal blood glucose.” Berberine also minimized both fasting and post-meal blood glucose levels and the patients’ insulin resistance went down by 45 percent. In a separate study, berberine proved to be just as effective as “metformin, glipizide, and rosiglitazone,” three of the top diabetes drugs on the market. Berberine has the bonus of not having any serious side effects.
  3. Black Seed (aka Nigella sativa) — In a study, 94 diabetic patients who received two grams of Nigella sativa capsules showed “significantly reduced fasting blood glucose and insulin resistance.”
  4. Cinnamon — Cinnamon helps normalize blood sugar levels in type-2 diabetics by improving a patient’s ability to respond to insulin. Cinnamon or cinnamon extracts help lower fasting blood glucose levels.
  5. Ginger — Participants in a study that received three one-gram capsules of ginger powder reduced their fasting blood sugar by 10.5 percent. In a separate study, it was confirmed that 1600 milligrams (mg) of ginger per day boosted eight markers of diabetes such as insulin sensitivity.
  6. Olive leaf extract — In a study, a group that received capsules containing olive leaf extract lowered their insulin resistance by at least 15 percent. Olive leaf extract also boosted the productivity of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas by 28 percent. The extract has the same effect as “common diabetic therapeutics” such as metformin.
  7. Spirulina — In a randomized study of insulin-resistant patients, participants who received 19 g of spirulina daily increased their insulin sensitivity by a whopping 224.7 percent.
  8. Turmeric — In 2009, a study determined that curcumin, an active compound in turmeric, was “500 to 100,000 times more effective than the prescription drug [m]etformin at activating glucose uptake.”

Other foods that can boost insulin sensitivity

Here are other foods that you can eat to help boost your insulin sensitivity:

Another week has arrived and it is February, spring is just around the corner now.
 
 I will touch on how to plant your seeds to get a quick start to your garden in up coming newsletters.   What fun to enjoy growing and harvesting our own vegetables and have the children help too, they will eat more if they are part of the harvest.
 
Instead of typing up information for all of us in this weeks newsletter, I wanted to share these two articles from Dr Mercola for everyone to read through, and watch the videos.
This is awesome information, we need to be aware of this.
Flu is not what is killing most of the reported flu deaths around our country, it is sepsis and easily treated with intravenous (IV) vitamin C, hydrocortisone and thiamine,2 which has been shown to reduce sepsis mortality from 40 to a mere 8.5 percent,
 
and do not forget to take Vitamin D-3 because we have lack of sunshine this time of year.
 
Remember bone broth, colloidal silver also.
 

Special Alert: Why Some People Are Dying From the Flu (It’s Not What You Think)

You need to know what researchers are discovering about this year’s virulent strain, in case you or a loved one develops the flu and you fear it’s taking a turn for the worse. When you need emergency care and what you must immediately tell the responders if you suspect this may be happening. It could save your life.

Top Tips to Boost Your Immunity

There are all kinds of ways you can compromise your immune system and end up getting sick, but there are just as many ways you can work toward restoring your immune system to benefit your whole body, from your brain to your gut. As a result, you may just stave off the flu and the common cold.

The enemy of our lives is not Man.   It’s the devil USING OUR OWN VOICE and even in our own accent to try to torment us.   His teeth were knocked out on Calvary and he has no bite  – he is only “gumming” us until WE give it power to damage us by the very words we speak… Watch what you say.
 
Suggestion:  Remove the words “My arthritis, My cancer, My disease, my aching back,  DO  NOT  take ownership to those destructive issues. Say:  “The word of God says My body is healed by the stripes of Jesus and this “name the issue” is defeated and it has to go in Jesus Name.  Doctors are not the authority on life – remember they are PRACTICING medicine… DO NOT accept the report of Man, but choose to use the report of the Word of God as it truly is medicine when applied.
 
Remember the scripture, 3 John 1:2 I wish above all that you be in heath and prosper as YOUR SOUL prospers… its what we inwardly feed our soul that prospers us in our bodies outwardly.
 
So feed your soul the WORD OF GOD, its surgery to our bodies and WILL WORK!
 
I want to thank Keisha for all of the research she did for  this weeks newsletter about the Best and Worst foods for cold and flu season.
 

It is that time again! The dreaded cold and flu season. Are you prepared?

Don’t put your trust in the flu shot…the absolute best way to defeat the cold and flu this season is to have a stellar immune system.

How can I get my immune system in tip top shape for cold and flu season?

Simple answer: Watch what you eat!

Here are the top worst foods for cold and flu season:

Here are the top best foods for cold and flu season:

And don’t forget to Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!

On top of watching what you eat it would be wise to invest in some supplements and essential oils as well.

BONUS #1 – Best Supplements for cold and flu season:

The classics: elderberry syrup, zinc, echinacea, goldenseal, vitamin C.

To go along with the above suggestions I also recommend:

#1 wash hands, wash hands, wash hands.   get Thieves hand sanitizer and carry it with you or make up your own Thieves hand spray by adding 6 to 10 drops of Thieves oil in a tiny spray bottle and fill bottle with water,  carrying it with you where ever you go.   Spray on grocery cart handles, table tops, your own hands etc.   Remember viral germs can live as long as 2 weeks on hard surfaces.

#2: keep your fingers and hands away from your eyes, nose and mouth – this is where the germs enter the body, as well as breathing them in.    Our air is very dry which creates an atmosphere for our eyes or nose to be itchy.  First thing we do is itch with our fingers or hands and nothing dirtier than our hands.  Use a clean Kleenex to itch or rub eyes or nose.   A good finger washing idea is to take a bar of soap ( I recommend using a bar of Thieves soap) and dig your fingernails into the moistened top of the soap getting soap down under the finger nails, then rinse.

For cold symptoms:  Thieves drops to suck on.   Thieves essential oil:  Rubbed on bottom of your feet, then dilute with coconut oil or olive oil and apply on forehead (keeping away from eyes) cheeks, lower throat, chest, upper back  and wrists.    Take 2-3 drops of Thieves oil in warm/hot water or tea, stir up to mix and drink to get it internally.  Can be added to your smoothies also.  Even can put a couple drops on a bread cube and eat, however the clove oil flavor is rather strong.   You may also inhale Thieves oil by diffusing or sniffing your hand after applying a few drops there.  I often will drop 1 drop of Thieves oil under my tongue, it is horribly strong at first till you get use to it, use a bit of olive oil to dilute it, but it goes right into the system faster this way.

Should any oil ever get into eyes, place olive oil in palm of hand and bend over putting eye into your palm with the olive oil and blink several times getting the olive oil into your eye.   It will stop the burning.  You may see the oil in your vision with rainbow of colors for a bit, this is normal.

Recipes for cold using essential oils in empty capsules:

Cold Blend #1: 2 drops lemon, 4 drops Eucalyptus radiate, 5 drops rosemary,4 drops peppermint & 3 drops cypress.  Put in empty capsule and take with water.

Cold Blend #2:  5 drops rosemary, 4 drops RC, 4 drops frankincense, 1 drop oregano & 2 drops peppermint.  Put in empty capsule and take with water.
If you do not have empty pill capsules, these oils can be mixed together in warm water or milk and drank.  Remember they are powerfully strong, but the flavor doesn’t last too long.

Bath Blend for relief of cold symptoms:   2 drops eucalyptus Radiata, 5 drops frankincense, 6 drops spruce, & 8 drops wintergreen.  Stir the oils into 1/2 cup Epsom salt or baking soda, then add the mixture to hot bath water while the tub is filling.   Fill tub quite high.  Soak in the hot bath until water cools.

Congestive cough:  Use Eucalyptus globulus, Peppermint (if taking in liquid use a toothpick to get a tiny amount to use and dip in oil and into your liquid as extremely strong) , RC, Raven, marjoram, hyssop, Thieves, Melrose, Idaho balsam fir.  Also you can mix up raw Honey and lemon juice mixture and swallow.

Mix 1 or 2 drops (except for peppermint, see above) of any one of these or a combination you have available into warm water, milk, juice making it like a syrup  and sip or drink slowly.

Mix a few drops or use one alone and diffuse.  If you have no diffuser, you can make one by putting the oils into a small pan half full of water and turn on the burner to medium just bring to simmer and turn on low to diffuse into the room.  But do get a few diffusers to have in different rooms, especially the bedrooms.   They are available at Young Living or at Healthy Concepts on Westhill Blvd, and not that expensive.

Mix up a few drops of any of those oils and put in warm water and gargle

Topical compress:  sprinkle over warm moist wash cloth or small towel and apply 1-2 times daily over chest, over throat and on upper back.

Mucus expectorant blend:   Using essential oils you will obtain faster and stronger results by inhalation than by ingesting the oils.   So diffuse or inhale a blend of:  3 drops lemon, 3 drops Eucalyptus globulus, & 2 drops pine.

For Influenza:   First essential oils suggested for flu are Ravensara and Immupro , then Thieves, Exodus II, Di-Gize and then Inner Defense tablets.
Put any of these or blend of these oils in diffuser/diffusers, apply topically 50/50 blend with coconut oil or olive oil on chest, stomach, lower back 2 to 3 times daily.  These oils may also be added to a warm moist compress over lower abdomen.  Easy way is to soak a moist small towel in a blend of these oils in bathroom sink, wring out and place on lower abdomen with a strip of handi-wrap over the moist towel, lay a larger bath towel folded up to keep the oils directly on the area.  Could use a warm heating pad for 20 minutes over the tummy area.
Drink Rice Milk at least 8 ounces 4-5 times a day.  Keep hydrated with good water also.

Influenza bath recipe:

2 drops Eucalyptus Radiata 6 drops frankincense, 3 drops blue cypress, 6 drops spruce, 15 drops ravenssara and 1 drop wintergreen.

Mix these oils thoroughly into 1/4 cup Epson salt or baking soda and then add this mixture into hot bath water while tub is filling (quite high in the tub).  Soak in the tub until the water becomes cool.

God gave us these oils to use for medical epidemics and everyday living.   Always pray over any blend or oils you are using to enhance these oils for our good.

Here’s why homemade electrolyte drink is so easy and  so effective:

The raw honey is naturally anti-microbial and great for infections. (see our post here for more info on raw honey) There may be a myriad of reasons for the dehydration, but in the case of illnesses, raw honey is my go-to sweetener because of it’s beneficial minerals and soothing properties.  Also, the sugar content will help restore low blood sugar levels that are common after bouts of diarrhea or vomiting.

Real, freshly squeezed lemon juice is a natural thirst quencher and helps fight fatigue.  It is also great for fever reduction and a natural source of vitamin C (source).

And finally, the amazing power of sea salt is what gives this drink an extra punch and is what aids in replacing the lost trace minerals and electrolytes.  Make sure that you are NOT using regular ol’ table salt; which has been refined at high temperatures, is often bleached for uniform color, and contains almost no trace minerals.  Sea salt contains all 92 of the vital trace minerals that our bodies need, so make sure to use pure, unrefined, high quality sea salt in order to make sure that you are truly replacing the minerals that are needed during re-hydration. source   

I don’t technically worry about dosage when we have the stomach flu because honestly, you’ll know when they’ve had too much… I simply try to get my kids (and myself and hubby) to sip on this throughout the day as much as possible, or several sips per hour.  This is a basic electrolyte replacement drink , so you don’t just need to use it when you’re sick – it’s ideal for workouts, traveling, and hot summer days.  My hubby does manual labor and in the summer time, I send several containers of this with him to work each day, to make sure that he stays hydrated.

NOTE FOR BABIES: It is not recommended that you give babies under 1 year of age raw honey, so instead, I substitute palm sugar to sweeten the concoction.  It has a very low glycemic index and is rich in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. Here’s a great article about palm sugar and it’s uses.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Dogs are getting the flu also and the only known cure for Dog Flu is Coconut oil.  Of course start out slowly, like with humans, 1/2 teaspoon each meal for week, then 1 teaspoon each meal for another week and then up to 1 tablespoon each meal every day.  Also rub on fur as it soaks in and is not greasy.
I give little dabs of coconut oil as a treat sometimes during the day.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Vitamin C is a potent ally against viral diseases

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and antiviral agent that boosts the immune system and prevents damage from free radicals. It also promotes production of interferon, which helps prevent cells from being infected in the first place.

In one study, megadoses of vitamin C (1,000 mg hourly for the first six hours, then dosages of 1,000 mg three times a day) reduced the severity of flu symptoms — by a drastic 85 percent.

When administered in sufficient dosages, vitamin C has caused dramatic recoveries from viral diseases.  For example, in one case, megadoses of vitamin C caused a New Zealand dairy farmer to make a complete recovery from life-threatening swine flu.

In a turn of events documented by “60 Minutes,” Allan Smith developed white-out pneumonia and hairy cell leukemia as complications of swine flu. Placed on life support and in a medically-induced coma, Smith was not expected to survive – until a family member insisted on a course of high-dose intravenous vitamin C.

The results were nothing short of miraculous. Smith’s condition improved within a day – and his improvement continued steadily as long as vitamin C was administered. His condition deteriorated when the vitamin C was abruptly stopped – then resumed as the vitamin was reintroduced.

Check out the amazing video (below) to see how Mr. Smith fully recovered.

Elderberry extract stimulates the action of lymphocytes

Elderberry extract is another effective antiviral warrior that you can enlist in the struggle against influenza. With powerful antioxidant properties, elderberry extract combats free radicals and enhances the immune system by boosting production of disease-fighting lymphocytes.

Sold under the brand name Sambucol, elderberry extract is available in syrups and lozenges. It should be taken at the first sign of flu symptoms.

Echinacea is a time-honored and effective flu remedy

This trusty herbal standby has been shown in studies to inhibit viruses and rev up the immune system. Echinacea is believed to bind to receptors on the surfaces of white blood cells, helping to stimulate infection-fighting processes.

It is available in capsules and liquid form.

Olive leaf extracts attack pathogens

With potent antiviral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, olive leaf extract wages all-out war on influenza.

Studies have shown that its active ingredient, oleuropein, can enhance phagocytosis, the process by which immune cells engulf and destroy pathogens. You can take olive leaf extract in capsule or liquid form – and even brew leaves into a soothing tea. (Here’s to a flu-free season!)

Of course, as always, check with a trusted integrative physician to see what’s best for you.

Flupocalypse – Yes it is the flu shots themselves that are leading to an increase in influenza infections. 
 
I touched on the flu as last weeks newsletter topic, and because of the latest intense reporting of flu epidemic in California and the LA Times reporting, I wished to readdress this topic again for all of us.
 
If you really want to avoid the flu, don’t be injected with heavy metals and viral fragments. Instead, boost your natural immunity using nutrition, healing foods and healthy lifestyle habits and know that our bodies were designed to heal itself.
 
In truth, the three best things you can do to prevent the flu are:

 

 

These are supported by literally thousands of published, peer-reviewed scientific studies   science-supported evidence for these supplements protecting people from influenza, read this piece entitled High-dose zinc supplements found to speed recovery from colds and flu by 300%, which cites a study conducted at the University of Helsinki and published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases

IMPORTANT:  It is the flu shots themselves that are leading to an increase in influenza infections.
 
The structure is a “perfect” self-perpetuating medical hoax rooted in fake science and relentless media propaganda

But nutrition is not mentioned in the LA Times story or other media propaganda pieces. That’s because their sole purpose is to promote the “flupocalypse” mass hysteria and tie it to a nationwide flu vaccine push that demands mindless, fact-less obedience to medical quackery. Why doesn’t the LA Times teach its readers how to prevent the flu with nutrition and natural substances?  Because that obviously doesn’t promote the profits of the corrupt vaccine industry, which dictates nearly all infectious disease coverage published by the dishonest media.

So predictable. The mainstream propaganda media — all now functioning as prostitutes for the pseudoscience vaccine industry — are claiming a “flupocalypse” is devastating America. The solution? You’re all supposed to get injected with the mercury-laced flu shot, of course, in order to “do your part” to halt the complete destruction of human civilization now being implied by the media propagandists. (These are all the same media outlets that also claim global warming is causing all the freezing cold weather across America, so their grip on scientific reality is obviously lacking.)

“California hospitals face a ‘war zone’ of flu patients,” screams a panicked Los Angeles Times headline. True to the war zone hysteria, the imagery of “triage tents” is invoked to try to mirror scenes from actual battlegrounds. From the LA Times article:

Hospitals across the state are sending away ambulances, flying in nurses from out of state and not letting children visit their loved ones for fear they’ll spread the flu. Others are canceling surgeries and erecting tents in their parking lots so they can triage the hordes of flu patients.

Filled with words like “crisis” and “fear” and “war zone” and “trenches,” the article is a masterpiece of flu vaccine propaganda, relentlessly equating the common flu with scenes from D-Day or the trenches of World War I. This mindless hysteria is predictably interwoven with pseudoscience medical advice that pushes the very same useless flu shot vaccines that contributed to the crisis in the first place. Via the LA Times:

Doctors say that people who haven’t yet gotten the flu shot should still get it. It takes about two weeks to take effect.

The story also utterly fails to mention that flu shots contain mercury, a brain-damaging heavy metal that’s intentionally used as a vaccine preservative called Thimerosal. This toxic mercury is what’s responsible for the increase in spontaneous abortions in pregnant women who receive the shot, as was shockingly demonstrated by a CDC-funded study published last year.

That’s no oversight. The vaccine industry propagandists deliberately withhold such information from the public, even knowing that unborn babies will be killed by those vaccines due to mercury toxicity. The LA Times also withholds this information from the public, actually contributing to the vaccine-induced abortions in women across California. (Then again, life-hating leftists love to abort babies by any means, so this is fully aligned with their overall mission in the first place.)

The media — is false and deliberately deceptive. Far from offering bulletproof protection, flu shots actually make people more vulnerable to influenza infections, which of course contributes to more people catching the flu and then falsely thinking they need more flu shots for “more protection.”

Yet it is the flu shots themselves that are leading to an increase in influenza infections.

Medical studies conducted at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center found that women who received flu vaccines had a weakened immune system response in subsequent years.

Lisa Christian, PhD, the lead researcher on the studies, concluded,

*****  “Growing evidence shows that those who received a flu shot in the prior year have lower antibody responses in the current year.”  ****

The flu vaccine, in other words, perpetuates the myth that flu vaccines are needed by ensuring influenza spreads more rapidly than would otherwise occur. In effect, flu vaccines spread the very infections that generate more demand for flu vaccines. The structure is a “perfect” self-perpetuating medical hoax rooted in fake science and relentless media propaganda.
 
Anyone who has taken prescription medications are given an insert sheet on the medication and we are asked to read the precautions on this insert sheet.
Well there is an insert sheet (which no one is shown)  for the  Flulaval flu vaccine, which openly admits, “…there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.”  FLULAVAL insert, it says in black and white text, “Safety and effectiveness of FLULAVAL in pediatric patients have not been established.” And,  “FLULAVAL has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.”

 
And if you really want to avoid the flu, don’t let the toxic pharma industrial complex inject you with heavy metals and viral fragments. Simply boost your natural immunity using the nutrition, healing foods and lifestyle habits that your body was designed to leverage for your protection

HOW TO USE MULLEN GARLIC OIL OR  ONIONS  FOR EAR ACHES OR INFECTIONS:  
 
I wanted to share this healthy alternative to flush out an  ear infection in this weeks newsletter as an addendum to this weeks newsletter –   particularly because so many of you have had issues with flu or colds, and ear infections could follow a cold or flu infection.
 
Earaches are downright miserable. Of my 4 children, only one was bothered with earaches following any cold bug.  I remember her crawling along the hallway on her  hands and knees, to dizzy to walk and in horrible pain.   I laid her on her side and looked into her ears.  Her ear canal was actually closed completely up in both ears.  I immediately got out the bottle of Mullen Garlic oil.  Instructions were to put the oil on a cotton ball and let the oil slowly roll into the ear canal.  This was impossible with closed over ear canals.  So I put drops in one ear with her laying on her side.   Told her to lay there a bit.  It took 10 minutes before the oil finally went down into the canal, then we did the other side.
 
I shared this information with our family pediatrician who also (at that time- 1975) did not like to dispense so many antibiotics.     He later informed me that he ordered a case of Mullen Garlic oil and put his patients on this oil for infections with excellent results instead of using Amoxicillin.    Of course, today this would not happen.
Do not  use Q-tips or other instruments.   Rule: put nothing smaller than your elbow in your ears.
 
Mullen Garlic oil can be purchased at a health food store.
 
Sometimes the garlic oil is not enough to relieve the pain  and that is when it is time to turn to “onion juice” .
 
While you prepare the onion juice, you could have the child try and relax in a warm bath tub, sometimes the warm moist air will loosen up the drainage in the ear, but also take the child’s mind off of the discomfort.  Do not leave the child alone if they are young.
  1. Turn oven on to 450 degrees and place onion inside on a pan (no preheating). I let it cook for about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove onion from oven and allow it to cool long enough to be able to handle (it was still warm).
  3. Once the onion was cooled down slightly  cut it in half and squeez over a small bowl. The onion juice comes easily and you only need a bit. (If there is any ‘stuff’ in the juice, strain it easily by pouring it through a piece of paper towel or a very thin cloth.)
  4. The juice should be cool enough to use at this point. Using a medicine eye  dropper, put a few drops into the ear keeping head tilted to one side to retain the juice for several minutes. (Do this for at least a few minutes, but more is good.)  Then repeat on the other side.
  5. This should relieve the pain and your little one will feel much better and be able to rest peacefully.   You will feel better too.
  6.  You could add a few drops a few hours later or the next morning.
  7. This is also good for adults as well.

Onions contain anti-bacterial, healing and anti-inflammatory properties that quickly and effectively sooth and calm the infected ear, allowing the body to heal without the inflamation and pressure causing pain.

Earaches and infections can become very serious and I encourage you to use your intuition and best judgement. Consult a trusted physician if you are ever in doubt or if the ear infection does not improve.

I buy a small bag of small “cheap” onions during wintertime and I peel 3 a day and cut them in half.  I also cut the bottom and top off so the onion can sit on a small saucer.  I place one center side cut up on 6 small plates or saucers and put one in each room of the house, living room, kitchen, bathroom, each bedroom.   After a bit there will be no onion smell.   These onions will collect virus and bacteria floating in the air of each room.  In the morning I toss all the onions away in a bag and place in the garbage can.   And cut up more onions.   This is a cheap way to kill bacteria and virus bugs.
