Protocol For Lymph Health/ A Mucus Free Diet

Posted on March 30, 2016 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (0)

The Lymphatic System is known as the tree of life within the body! This includes your Spleen,

Thymus, Tonsils, Lymph nodes and Lymph vessels, which carry Lymph fluid to bathe every tissue. Lymph fluid carries nutrients, lymphocytes and oxygen to tissues as it carries away waste and toxins. Your blood has your heart muscle to pump it, but your Lymph fluid requires movement from the muscles in your whole body to move it around! It acts as a kind of continuous cleansing system at the cellular level in your body! A healthy Lymphatic System is key to a healthy Immune System.

 

To have and maintain a healthy Lymphatic system, it is very important to eat a clean, live food diet, drink plenty of the purest water you can, and get regular moderate exercise and rest.

 

By a clean, live food diet I mean no processed grains. No baked goods. (overheating grains renders the calcium in them toxic) Only whole grains low in gluten, and seeds, like Amaranth, Brown Rice, Buckwheat, Chia, Flax, Kamut, Millet, Whole Oats, Ouinoa, and Spelt should be eaten. Corn, Soy and Wheat are to be avoided. Sprouting and soaking grains in room temperature or hot water is good. Boiling or baking above 105 degrees kills the live enzymes in your foods. You want the enzymes in your foods to be alive because YOU are alive and want to stay that way! Seeds and nuts are wonderful complete foods. Choose the most beneficial for your blood type. Peanuts are to be avoided. All Dairy ( unless it is RAW) and processed sugars are to be avoided. Honey, Molasses, and Maple Syrup are OK.

 

Fresh fish, again the most beneficial for your blood type, wild caught, or sardines packed in water are good. Organic chicken or turkey is also good. No eggs or salt, please! There is enough natural sodium in the raw veggies. You are going to be getting plenty of protein in this diet without meat!

 

Your fruits and vegetables should be mostly raw or lightly steamed, and as local and organic as possible. Most pesticides are metabolized into estrogens and other toxic substances your body does not need.. If you know your blood type choose the most beneficial for your type. Fresh live/raw juices are also great! Green Smoothies are also wonderful for your Lymph system!

 

To be completely sure that you are getting all the nutrients that your body requires to be at optimal health, take Herb Power 21 everyday! It is a combination of special herbs that contain all the known vitamins, essential minerals, amino acids and enzymes. Because the Herbs are raw and flash frozen, the enzymes are still alive. Being made from Herbs, which are foods created by God, the nutrients are more

bio-available than those in most commercial supplements made with synthetic chemicals and ground up rocks and acids. Herb Power 21 addresses the health of every organ and system in your body!

Make sure you drink half (1/2) of your body weight in ounces of water daily. This allows the Lymph fluid, as well as the other fluids in your body to be able to flow and do their jobs. An example would

be a person weighing 100 pounds drinking 50 ounces of water daily.

 

A lack of exercise does not allow the Lymph fluid to flow and carry away waste products and debris

from your cells, so cellular breakdown is more likely to occur. Your tissues become toxic. Tissues form organs, and your whole body becomes toxic.

 

Regular walking, Dry Skin Brushing with a natural fiber skin brush, and regular exercise are very important. Attached to this are some specific Lymph system exercises. Jump for Joy! Jump rope! : )

Jump up and down and be silly! Add FUN, yes... FUN to your day!

 

Regular Detoxing of your whole body and colon are imperative! You clean the outside of your body, you need to clean your insides too! At least twice a year is good, but quarterly with the change of seasons is best.

Our Super Herbal Body Cleanse is the best, most thorough cleanse on the market. It is the only one that targets cleaning the Lymph System. Start with 1-2 capsules with 16 ounces of water30 minutes before bed. Take another 1-2 in the morning with at least 16 ounces of water. Depending on how regular your bowel movements are, gradually increase the number of capsules & water until you are going 3 times every day. Maintain this for 30 days for a thorough detox cleanse.

 

A process called Oil Pulling is also very good to help your body get rid of toxins. Every morning before you brush your teeth (with Herb Power 21) swish a teaspoon of extra virgin pure olive oil, or oil that is beneficial for your blood type. Swish it around and around in between your teeth for 10-20

minutes, then spit out into a napkin, so you won’t clog your pipes with oil. This removes bacteria, viruses& toxins, while bathing your teeth, gums and mouth tissues with those wonderful essential fatty acids.

 

Bathe in pure non chlorinated water when necessary, but most Americans bathe much too often! Dry Skin Brushing is really sufficient, when you are eating a clean diet & detoxing regularly! When you wish to, you can use essential oils for fragrance or to help in purification. Geranium, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Lime, Orange and Tangerine oils are excellent for the Lymph System! Our pure, raw Shea Butter is also good for the skin! A great skin and Lymph cleanser is made by combining in a glass container with a tight lid:

½ cup Raw Shea Butter,

1 ½ cups Epsom Salts,

and 5-8 drops essential oils

 

Exercise is very important, but there must be a balance,. Overwork is not good for your health in general! You must be sure to get at least eight (8) hours of sound sleep every night, and regular days off to rest. Rest, Relaxation and Recreation are necessary for your body to rebuild itself! Our Great Creator designed our bodies to rest once a week! If you were to check your pulse every day, you would find that every seven (7) days it is slower! So get enough rest for your body to repair and renew itself!

 

Spiritual and emotional health are also important to your overall health! Keep a positive outlook!

Focus on the GOOD! Let everything you think about be positive and have a joyful attitude! I don’t mean “pie in the sky” but there is always something good in every situation! Have fun! Look for joy and laughter! Keep a smile on your face & make people wonder what you are up to! Have a thankful heart and a song in your heart! Spend time in prayer, sharing your heart with God and spending time in His presence! Read Scripture everyday! This will help keep your mind renewed and on good and pure things, like Philippians chapter four verse 8 says to do!

Also let every word you say be true, helpful, important, and kind! If what you want to say does not fit this, don’t say it! THINK before you speak and ask God for something that is fit to say.

 

Do things for others. Do things with the outlook that what you are doing is bigger than yourself and will outlast you. It’s not about you, but using your special gifts and talents that make you valuable!

If you follow this advice, then everything you do should be more beneficial to yourself and those around you, as well as more pleasing to our Great Creator!

 

Love, Blessings and Best wishes! Thank you for allowing me to help you on your journey to

Better Health!

What to Eat to Repel Bugs

Posted on June 16, 2014 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Garlic


It releases a sulfur gas called allicin when it is attacked by insects. The compound is toxic to bugs if they consume it. Allicin is also the compound that causes the strong odor in garlic. When we consume garlic, the smell can be  emitted through our skin and interfere with bugs’ sense of smell. This makes it hard for bugs to smell us and   therefore bite us.



Lemongrass

The oils found in lemongrass are a well-known natural bug repellant because they mask our odor, but consuming lemongrass may have the same protective properties. So make sure to add lots of lemongrass to your soups and curries.

 


Grapefruit


Grapefruit contains a compound called nootkatone that repels mosquitoes. Nootkatone is also supposed to be effective against ticks and scientists are conducting research to see if it will work against other insects. You may want to consider adding grapefruit to your breakfast more often.



Chiles

Chiles or Capsaicin, the heat-generating compound in chiles is already used as a natural insecticide and is known to stop the itchiness caused by bug bites, but eating chiles may also prevent bug bites. Bugs apparently do not like the smell that emanates from our bodies when we consume food that contains capsaicin.

 

 


Onions

Onions contain the same chemical, allicin that garlic does. While eating tons of onions may not make you very popular among friends and family, they may help keep bugs away, so consider adding more onions in your diet. Leeks, chives, and shallots also contain allicin.

 


Lentils

Lentils are cheap and nutritious and they may also prevent bug bites. Beans and lentils are high in vitamin B-1, also known as thiamine. The smell that thiamine releases after consumption is supposed to repel bugs. Now you have the perfect excuse to consume a whole tube of hummus or add even more refried beans to your huevos rancheros.

 


Tomatoes

A common home remedy for bug bites is to rub tomato juice on the bites. But consuming tomatoes may actually prevent bug bites from happening. Tomatoes are another good source of thiamine and a diet rich in thiamine may make you less enticing to bugs.

 


Vitamin B-1, also known as Thiamine

Vitamin B-1 A common home remedy for bug bites. Thiamine may make you less enticing to bugs.
The smell that thiamine releases after consumption is supposed to repel bugs.

 


 

 


Colon hydrotherapy

Posted on December 18, 2013 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)


The are four top names that identify colon cleaning! 

 

1. Colon Hydrotherapy 
2. Colon Irrigation 
3. Colon Therapy
4. Colonics


The colon is like a second nervous system, death actually starts in the colon.  

A toxic bowel is the source of many health problems. By cleansing the old, toxic mucus lining of the bowel, one can feel better. In addition, the bowel is open to a more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption, both of which can be helpful to any healing process. 

Symptoms of toxic colon or autointoxication include: 

* Lack of mental focus
* Difficult weight loss
* Bad breath odor
* Frequent colds
* Foul body odor
* Chronic fatigue
* Nervousness
* Constipation
* Headaches
* Depression
* Poor vision  
* Indigestion
* Irritability
* allergies
* Bloating
* Arthritis
* Asthma
* Acne

We all have toxins… 

At times the colon is unable to remove waste and bacteria from your body efficiently, just think what happens when you don’t take the garbage out at your own home… when your colon is unable to remove waste and bacteria from your body efficiently, it “could” cause illness and poor health. These are five reasons why colonics in conjunction with an internal colon cleanse can be done seasonally.

Every day, you ingest foods that have dangerous chemicals in them which will disrupt your immune system. Your immune system helps keep your body free from illness and helps you heal. When it becomes compromised, you will become more prone to illness. 

When your colon is unable to effectively pass toxins out of the body, they stay there and can slow down your healing process. They will get reabsorbed into your body and “could” cause you to get sick (autointoxication may occur). 

Drinking alcohol or taking over the counter medications or drinking a lot of coffee can put a lot of stress on your colon. 

Most people do not get enough fiber in their daily diet. Instead, most people eat diets that consist of a lot of fat and sugar. This can create build up in your colon. Most people have between five and ten pounds of this build up just sitting in their colon and that “can” cause many health problems. 

The toxins in the fecal matter are absorbed by the colon wall and re-circulate through the blood stream; this process is called ‘autointoxication’. As these toxins circulate the body, the lymphatic, circulatory systems, liver, lungs and kidneys become overburdened and when these systems are unable to cope with this toxic overload your body becomes at risk for serious health problems. 

Colon cleansing encompasses a number of alternative medical therapies intended to remove feces and nonspecific toxins from the colon and intestinal tract. 

Colon cleansing may take the form of colon hydrotherapy. 
But, may also be colon cleansing, oral cleansing regimens, such as dietary supplements.
Oral cleaning protocols use dietary fiber, herbs, dietary supplements, or laxatives.
Some forms of colon hydrotherapy use tubes to inject water, sometimes mixed with herbs or with other liquids, into the colon via the rectum using special equipment.

People who practice colon cleansing are healthier, and do not have accumulations of putrefied feces that line the walls of the large intestine. These accumulations harbor parasites or pathogenic gut flora, causing nonspecific symptoms and general ill-health.

Tips for Resetting Your Internal Clock and Sleeping Better

Posted on October 3, 2013 at 2:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Good sleep is one of the cornerstones of health, without which optimal health will remain elusive. Impaired sleep can increase your risk of a wide variety of diseases and disorders, including:

* Heart disease
* Stomach ulcers
* Mood disorders like depression
* Cancer

Numerous factors can contribute to poor sleep, including vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The featured article by LiveScience1 highlights three nutrients tied to three common sleep problems. To this, I would add melatonin, which is both a hormone and an antioxidant:

* Magnesium deficiency can cause insomnia
* Lack of potassium can lead to difficulty staying asleep throughout the night
* Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to excessive daytime sleepiness


The Importance of Melatonin

personally believe that melatonin is one of the most important nutrients to help you optimize your sleep, as it plays a crucial role in your circadian rhythm or internal clock.

Melatonin is produced by a pea-sized gland in the middle of your brain called the pineal gland. When your circadian rhythms are disrupted, your body produces less melatonin, which reduces your ability to fight cancer.

Melatonin actually helps suppress free radicals that can lead to cancer. (This is why tumors grow faster when you sleep poorly.) It also produces a number of health benefits related to your immune system.

For most people, the pineal gland is totally inactive during the day. But, at night, when you are exposed to darkness, your pineal gland begins producing melatonin to be released into your blood.

Melatonin makes you feel sleepy, and in a normal night's sleep, your melatonin levels stay elevated for about 12 hours (usually between 9 pm and 9 am). Then, as the sun rises and your day begins, your pineal gland reduces your production of melatonin.

The levels in your blood decrease until they're hardly measurable at all. This rise and fall of your melatonin levels are part and parcel of your internal clock that dictates when you’re sleepy and when you feel fully awake.

How to Optimize Your Melatonin and Reset Your Circadian Rhythm


In related news, research suggests camping could help you reset an internal clock gone haywire from modern living.

“Scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder found that if you live by the sun's schedule, you are more likely to go to bed at least an hour earlier, wake up an hour earlier, and be less groggy, because your internal clock and external reality are more in sync. The sun adjusts your clock to what may be its natural state, undoing the influence of lightbulbs.”

Since humans evolved in the glow of firelight, the yellow, orange and red wavelengths don’t suppress melatonin production the way white and blue wavelengths do. If you want to protect your melatonin cycle, when the sun goes down, you would shift to a low wattage bulb with yellow, orange, or red light.

One good option is using a salt lamp illuminated by a 5-watt bulb. It’s important to realize that turning on a light in the middle of the night, even for a short moment, such as when you get up to go to the bathroom, will disrupt your melatonin production and interfere with your sleep.

Ideally, it is best to increase melatonin levels naturally with exposure to bright sunlight in the daytime (along with full spectrum fluorescent bulbs in the winter) and absolute complete darkness at night. If that isn't possible, you may want to consider a melatonin supplement.

In scientific studies, melatonin has been shown to help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep, experience less restlessness, and prevent daytime fatigue. Keep in mind that only a very small dose is required — typically 0.25 mg or 0.5 mg to start with, and you can adjust it up from there.

Taking higher doses, such as 3 mg, can sometimes make you more wakeful instead of sleepier, so adjust your dose carefully. While melatonin is most commonly used in tablet or spray form, certain foods also contain it. Cherries, for instance, are a natural source of melatonin, and drinking tart cherry juice has been found to be beneficial in improving sleep duration and quality.

Up to 80 Percent of Americans Are Magnesium-Deficient


Lack of magnesium may play a role in insomnia, and dietary surveys suggest that the majority of Americans are simply not getting enough magnesium from their diet alone.5 Other factors that can make you more prone to magnesium deficiency include:

To avoid magnesium deficiency, make sure you're eating a varied, whole-food diet like the one described in my nutrition plan. Green leafy vegetables like spinach and Swiss chard are excellent sources of magnesium, as are some beans, nuts and seeds, like almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower and sesame seeds. Avocados are also a good source. Juicing your greens is an excellent way to optimize your nutrition. This is my personal strategy. I typically drink one pint to one quart of fresh green vegetable juice every day, and it is one of my primary sources of magnesium.


If you decide to use a supplement, magnesium threonate is likely one of the best sources of magnesium as it seems to penetrate cell membranes, including the mitochondria, which results in higher energy levels. Additionally, it also penetrates the blood-brain barrier and seems to do wonders to treat and prevent dementia and improve memory.

Balance Your Magnesium with Calcium, Vitamin K2 and D


One of the major benefits of getting your nutrients from a varied whole food diet is that you're far less likely to end up with too much of one nutrient at the expense of others. Foods in general contain all the cofactors and needed co-nutrients in the proper amounts for optimal health, which takes out the guess work. When you're using supplements, you need to become a bit more savvy about how nutrients influence and synergistically affect each other.

For example, it's important to maintain the proper balance between magnesium, calcium, vitamin K2, and vitamin D. These all work together synergistically, and lack of balance between these nutrients is why calcium supplements have become associated with increased risk of heart attacks and stroke, and why some people experience vitamin D toxicity. To learn more about this, please see this previous article that delves into this at some depth.

Do You Need More Potassium in Your Diet?

Potassium is an essential mineral "salt" that is sometimes referred to as the "good salt." It’s most commonly known for its role in blood pressure regulation, and it works synergistically with magnesium to improve sleep, among other things. This combination may be of particular benefit if muscle cramps are keeping you awake.

As an electrolyte, potassium is a positive charged ion that must maintain a certain concentration7 in order to carry out its functions, which includes interacting with sodium to help control nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction and heart function. In fact, maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium is an important factor for optimal health. It’s generally recommended that you take in five times more potassium than sodium,8 but because most Americans' diets are so rich in high-sodium processed foods, most people get double the amount of sodium compared to potassium from their diet.

If you have high blood pressure, it could be a sign that you're lacking in this vital mineral or that your ratio of potassium to sodium is upside-down from an improper diet. Signs of severe potassium deficiency include fatigue, muscle weakness, abdominal pain and cramps, and in severe cases abnormal heart rhythms and muscular paralysis. The ideal way to increase your potassium is to obtain it from vegetables, such as:


Vitamin D Deficiency May Be the Cause of Excessive Sleepiness

A growing body of research clearly shows the absolute necessity of vitamin D for good health and disease prevention, and it may even play an important role in sleep. According to research presented at last year’s Associated Professional Sleep Societies meeting, people with daytime sleepiness and musculoskeletal pain, which can easily sabotage sleep, are likely to have vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency. According to a writeup by Mother Nature Network:9

“[T]he team decided to test the vitamin D levels of patients who had complained of chronic pain as part of the workup that was done for other sleep disturbances. McCarty and colleagues performed research and reviews of 153 patients at a sleep clinic. Eighty-four percent of patients had either vitamin D insufficiency (30 percent) or deficiency (54 percent).

They discovered that some patients who exhibited low levels of vitamin D experienced complete resolution of daytime sleepiness symptoms after treatment for vitamin D deficiency. McCarty and colleagues concluded that it is biologically plausible that low vitamin D could contribute to sleepiness because of its role in systemic inflammation.”

Vitamin D3 is an oil-soluble steroid hormone (the term “vitamin” is a misnomer) that forms when your skin is exposed to UVB radiation from the sun or a safe tanning bed. When UVB strikes the surface of your skin, your skin converts a cholesterol derivative into vitamin D3, and this is, by far, the best way to optimize your vitamin D levels.

If you opt for a vitamin D supplement, you also need to boost your intake of vitamin K2 through food and/or a supplement. How do you know if your vitamin D level is in the right range? The most important factor is having your vitamin D serum level tested every six months, as people vary widely in their response to ultraviolet exposure or oral D3 supplementation. Your goal is to reach a clinically relevant serum level of 50-70 ng/ml. As a general guideline, research by GrassrootsHealth suggests that adults need about 8,000 IU’s per day to achieve a serum level of 40 ng/ml.

Tips to Help You Sleep Better

Besides nutritional deficiencies, there are many other variables that can impact how well you sleep. I suggest you read through my full set of 33 healthy sleep guidelines for all of the details, but to start, making some adjustments to your sleeping area can go a long way to ensure uninterrupted, restful sleep.

Cover your windows with blackout shades or drapes to ensure complete darkness. Even the tiniest bit of light in the room can disrupt your pineal gland's production of melatonin and the melatonin precursor serotonin, thereby disrupting your sleep cycle.

So close your bedroom door, get rid of night-lights, and refrain from turning on any light during the night, even when getting up to go to the bathroom. If you have to use a light, install so-called "low blue" light bulbs in your bedroom and bathroom. These emit amber light that will not suppress melatonin production.

Keep the temperature in your bedroom at or below 70 degrees F (21 degrees Celsius). Many people keep their homes and particularly their upstairs bedrooms too warm. Studies show that the optimal room temperature for sleep is quite cool, between 60 to 68 degrees F (15.5 to 20 C). Keeping your room cooler or hotter can lead to restless sleep. Check your bedroom for electromagnetic fields (EMFs). These can also disrupt your pineal gland's production of melatonin and serotonin, and may have other negative effects as well. To do this, you need a gauss meter. You can find various models online, starting around $50 to $200. Some experts even recommend pulling your circuit breaker before bed to kill all power in your house. Move alarm clocks and other electrical devices away from your head. If these devices must be used, keep them as far away from your bed as possible, preferably at least three feet. Reduce use of light-emitting technology, such as your TV, iPad, and computer, before going to bed.

These emit the type of light that will suppress melatonin production, which in turn will hamper your ability to fall asleep, as well as increase your cancer risk (melatonin helps to suppress harmful free radicals in your body and slows the production of estrogen, which can contribute to cancer). Ideally, you'll want to turn all such light-emitting gadgets off at least one hour prior to bedtime. As previously discussed by Dr. Rubin Naiman, a leader in integrative medicine approaches to sleep and dreams, sleep is the outcome of an interaction between two variables, namely sleepiness and what he refers to as "noise.” This is any kind of stimulation that inhibits or disrupts sleep. In order to get a good night's sleep, you want your sleepiness level to be high, and the “noise” level to be low. Under normal conditions, your sleepiness should gradually increase throughout the day and evening, peaking just before you go to bed at night. However, if noise is conceptually greater than your level of sleepiness, you will not be able to fall asleep.

Improving Your Nutrition May Help You Sleep Better If you aren’t sleeping well, it is just a matter of time before it will adversely affect your health, even if you’re doing everything else right. Fortunately, there are many simple solutions to address poor sleep, starting with your diet and lifestyle. Certain nutrients, such as melatonin, magnesium, potassium and vitamin D can play an important role. It’s also crucial to pay attention to your use of artificial lighting. To promote good sleep, make sure you’re exposed to full natural light during the day, and avoid artificial lighting once the sun goes down, especially as bedtime draws near.

To make your bedroom into a suitable sleep sanctuary, begin by making sure it’s pitch-black, cool, and quiet. Remember, even the tiniest bit of light can disrupt your pineal gland's production of melatonin and serotonin. For this reason, I highly recommend adding room-darkening blinds or drapes to your bedroom, or if this is not possible wearing an eye mask to block out any stray light.

For even more helpful guidance on how to improve your sleep, please review my 33 Secrets to a Good Night's Sleep. If you're even slightly sleep-deprived, I encourage you to implement some of these tips tonight, as high-quality sleep is one of the most important factors in your health and quality of life.

How to Nourish and Maintain Healthy Bones

Posted on March 2, 2013 at 2:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Expert advice is  to take Whole Food supplements in a 2:1 ratio of magnesium to calcium, but you cannot  fail to take into account individual differences and the many facets of diet and lifestyle that affect skeletal health.

Also taking a 100% Food supplement that is intended to supply nutrients, glandulars, and herbs needed to maintain optima lbone and  joint health.  One of the most outstanding products is Advanced Joint Complex

Nourishing and maintaining healthy bones best begins with the understanding that your bones are living, active organs that are filled with a number of different tissues, the main ones being bone tissue (hardened minerals), bone marrow, specialized tissues that line different sections of your bones (endosteum and periosteum), cartilage, blood vessels, and nerves.

Why are there somany different types of tissue in your bones?

Because your bones need to carry out a number of functions, the most importantones being:

Production of blood cells (hematopoiesis) - The inner portion (medulla) of your long bones is where most of your blood cells are formed. Maintenance of delicate acid-alkaline balance within your blood - Your bones act as storage sites for minerals, providing a buffering mechanism that allows the pH of your blood to stay within a slightly alkaline range (approximately 7.35 to 7.45). Provision of structural framework and protection - Your bones serve to support your entire structure and protect your internal organs. For example, your ribcage serves to create and protect your thoracic cavity, home to your heart and lungs.Transduction of sound - Small bones that exist in your inner ear region help you hear and distinguish different sounds. Due to the number of functions that your bones carry out on a daily basis, they are constantly being remodeled according to your needs and circumstances. This remodeling process is mainly carried out by two types of cells that exist within yourbones:

Osteoblasts - Responsible for new bone production. Osteoclasts - Responsible for removing damaged or unneeded cells.Together,osteoblasts and osteoclasts continuously remodel your bones with three primary goals in mind:

Repair areas that are damaged from stress associated with your activities of daily living - most of this damage is microscopic. Regulate calcium levels in your blood. Optimally shape your bones while you are growing. If you are not yet impressed by the amount of activity that goes on within your bones on asecond-to-second basis, consider that virtually all of the hormones that your body produces have some effect on your bones. Here is a severely truncated list of hormones that you produce on a daily basis that affect the activities and health of your bones:

Growth hormone,Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Thyroid hormones (T4, T3 and their derivatives) Cortisol, Erythropoietin. At this point, it should be clear that primarily focusing on how much calcium you need to take each day is not likely to ensure that you build and maintain healthy bones. As dynamically alive as your bones are, I also hope it's clear that you can do so much more to keep your bones strong as you age.

So what should you be doing to keep your bones strong and flexible as you age?

 

How to Build and Maintain Healthy Bones. 1. Be physically active.

No other facet of your life has greater impact on the health of your bones.

Your body is designed to adapt all of your organs - your bones included - to your specific needs. If you are physically active, your body will work to make your bones as strong and flexible as possible with its resources. If you lead a relatively sedentary lifestyle, your body will not work to produce and maintain strong and flexible bones since your lifestyle is not signaling a need for such bones.

Being physically active doesn't mean that you have to jog "x" number of miles per day or attend aerobics classes at your local gym three times a week. If you are regularly doing chores around your living and work areas, walking or biking when you can instead of taking your car, and finding other ways to go about your daily routine while being physically active, there is no need to make time to "exercise," since you are already exercising for most of the day. But if you, like most people, spend most of your day sitting for long stretches at a time, for the sake of building and maintaining healthy bones, you should incorporate more physical activity into your daily routine.

2.Stretch your largest muscle groups daily. A regular stretching program can help ensure that your muscles, tendons, and ligaments stay at healthy lengths.

A sedentary lifestyle and/or lack of stretching can cause gradual shortening of muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and since these tissues insert into your bones, when they shorten, they can actually put significant stress on the irinsertion points. This is a primary mechanism of bone spur (osteophytes) development.  Foamrolling your biggest muscle groups is an excellent adjunct to stretching, and can almost certainly help keep your bones and soft tissues healthy.

Watch for future entries on exercise.

 

3. Eat mineral-rich foods.

Your body needs much more than calcium supplements to build and maintain healthy bones. When you consider that your bones are comprised of boron, calcium, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, manganese, zinc, iron, silica, and many other trace minerals, it should be clear that you need to be eating mineral-rich foods.

Generally speaking, green vegetables and herbs are the healthiest, mineral-rich foods that you can eat. If you want to ensure that you are actually getting the minerals in green vegetables and herbs into your bloodstream to become available to your bones and other organs, you must be mindful of chewing these plants very thoroughly. Thorough chewing helps to ensure that the protective cell walls that surround all plant cells are sufficiently broken to allow your bones and other tissues to have access to the many minerals contained within those cells. These greens are best eaten raw, to protect and preserve the essential enzymes necessary for absorption into your blood stream. You might consider taking a whole food  Enzyme suppliment. Also, taking supplimental pro-biotics is very important to insure that the chlorophyl in the greens is converted into vitamin K .

Drinking freshly pressed vegetable juices and well blended green smoothies are other ways of ensuring that you actually get the minerals in green vegetables and herbs into your bloodstream.

Use of high quality green food powders can also help provide your bloodstream and bones with a rich supply of minerals.

4.Consider drinking mineral-rich broths.

Broths that are made by simmering bones and a variety of vegetables for an hour or longer are a fantastic source of calcium and other minerals that can be used to keep your bones strong and flexible. Make sure that you use bones from Organicly raised, grassfed animals whenever possible, to avoid pesticides and artificial hormones.

Mineral-rich broths are a chief source of dietary calcium in east Asian countries like China and Korea, where many people are unable to fully digest dairy products. These broths take significant time and effort to make on a regular basis, but they nourish your bones (and the rest of your organs) like few other foods can. They were traditional for many of our grandparents, and their grandparents before them. My Mother always had some simmering on the stove.

5. Ensure adequate vitamin D status.

Adequate amounts of vitamin D must be present in your body for calcium in your foods to be optimally absorbed and used.

When the weather is warm and sunlight is readily present, the best way to ensure adequate vitamin D status is to expose your skin to sunlight on a regular basis without getting burned. Sunlight acts on cholesterol found in your skin to produce vitamin D. Your body destroys any excess vitamin D that is made in this fashion when it has made enough for your needs. Please keep in mind that use of a sunscreen with an SPF of 8 or higher can prevent sunlight from acting on cholesterol in your skin to produce vitamin D. Also, don't shower immediatly after exercise in the sunshine. Allow your skin time to absorb the vitamin D.

When the weather is cool and sunlight is not readily available, the best way to ensure adequate vitamin D-3 is for you to take a whole food D supplement. Also, eat one or more foods that are naturally rich in vitamin D on a regular basis. Different varieties of fish like wild salmon and sardines are good food sources of natural vitamin D.
High quality cod liver oil is another good food source of natural vitamin D.

 

6. Eat high quality fats and cholesterol.

Consumption of high quality fats optimizes the absorption of vitamins A and D into your bloodstream. And vitamin A is needed to keep your intestinal lining healthy and readily able to absorb minerals in the foods that you eat. For these reasons, it's virtually impossible to have optimally healthy bones and teeth without including healthy fats in your diet.

Here are some examples of foods that are rich in healthy fats:

·      Extra virgin olive oil

·      Avocados

·      Organic eggs from cage-free and hormone-free birds

·      Soaked nuts and seeds (about a handful per day at most)

·      Cold-water fish and high quality fish oils

·      Coconuts and coconut oil

·      Bone broths

·      Organically raised red and white meats, such as Grass-fed Lamb and Beef. (should be eaten sparingly if eaten at all - with proper planning, there is no physiological requirement for red and white meats-eat according to your blood type)

·       Healthy cholesterol is also needed for a healthy intestinal lining that is able to optimally absorb minerals into your bloodstream. Healthy dietary cholesterol can help ensure adequate cholesterol status in your system so that sunlight has enough cholesterol to act on to produce vitamin D. While your body is capable of producing cholesterol from other nutrients, it makes sense to ensure adequate cholesterol levels via intake of healthy cholesterol.

 

7. Learn how to effectively manage emotional stress.

Chronic emotional stress can elevate the level of cortisol in your blood. Cortisol is useful for combating stress, but if it remains elevated in your system over the long term, it can cause the matrix of your bones to weaken. Corticosteroid drugs can also weaken your bones and cause osteoporosis if used in largequantities and/or over the long term.


8. Avoidregular consumption of foods that may cause your bones to lose calcium.

Acid-forming foods are foods that bring the pH of your blood down. Because you cannot survive if the pH of your blood moves outside a very narrow range (7.35 to7.45), your body must buffer the effects of acid-forming foods to maintain ahealthy blood pH level. One of the main ways in which your body buffers acid-forming foods is to take calcium from your bones and use it to neutralizethe remnants of acid-forming foods. If your body is repeatedly forced to do this, your bones may be weakened.

Foods that are strongly acid-forming in your blood and should NOT be staples in your diet include:

·      Artificial sweeteners

·      Soft drinks (pop)

·      Sugar

·      Cookies, cakes, and pastries made with white flour

·      Table salt

·      Alcohol

 

9. Eat foods that are rich in vitamin C.

Collagen is a long, fibrous protein that is critical to providing your bones with tensile strength. In short, the more quality collagen that you have in your bones, the more physical stress that your bones can tolerate before breaking.

Your body needs vitamin C to synthesize collagen. Please note that there is a big difference between the full vitamin C complex found in real foods and syntheticforms of vitamin C found in many nutritional supplements. Some excellent foodsources of real vitamin C are:

 

·      Organice goji berries

·      Bell peppers

·      Citrus fruits

·      Broccoli

·      Brussels sprouts

·      Acerola Cherries

.      Dandilion Greens

.      Parsley and Cilantro
     

I hope that this post makes it clear that your bones are active organs that are slowly supported or eroded by every food and lifestyle choice that you make. Addressing osteoporosis with a calcium supplement or drug without regard for your overall health will not allow you to build and maintain the healthiest bones that your genetics and upbringing will allow. If you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, please note that in early stages, weakened bones can become fully healthy again if you consistently make the good choices in the days ahead.  One of the most powerful supplements to take to feed and nourish your bones  is a product called Bone.


Note: If your life circumstances are such that you need extra nutritional support for healthy bones, you might well consider the following professional grade formula: Advanced Joint Complex. Other choices are Bone Meal Powder, an excellant supplimental source of nutirents for your bones that can be sprinkled on your food or mixed into juice or a smoothy, as well as Diatomacious Earth,  and Red Marine Algae, a sea vegetable that has a wealth of readily available minerals and nutrients for your bones.

Why Anxiety Drugs are Addictive

Posted on February 17, 2013 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Valium-like drugs use the same potentially addictive "reward pathways" in the brain as heroin and cannabis, according to new research.Researchers found that so-called benzodiazepine drugs, such as Ativan, Xanax and Valium, exert a calming effect by boosting action of a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the same way as addictive drugs like opioids and cannabinoids.

This in turn activates the gratification hormone, dopamine, in the brain, showing that the same brain "reward pathways" are used by both types of drugs. People with higher levels of dopamine in the brain tend to be more prone to addictive behavior.

Anxiety is an enormously crippling problem. Calm By Nature support a calm confident mood! Unfortunately, most people who suffer with it either do nothing, or resort to pharmaceutical drugs – many of which are ineffective, and capable of destroying your health and sanity further. Likewise, most of the research is being done in order to develop newer drugs, rather than finding truly healthy solutions.

As most of you know, drugs are rarely ever the solution for treating the cause of mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, which are frequently the result of bioenergetic malfunctioning due to either emotional, biological or environmental stress.

And, despite the popularity of drugs, research has shown that the two most successful conventional treatments of anxiety disorders are psychotherapy and behavioral therapy.

Behavioral therapy is defined as targeting the issue through breathing exercises and small increments of exposure to what is causing the person anxiety. Cognitive behavioral therapy on the other hand, is designed to help the person deal more effectively with situations that fill them with anxiety.

 
The Addictive Nature of Anxiety Drugs

nxiety disorders are commonly treated with anti-anxiety drugs in conventional medicine. Commonly prescribed drugs include benzodiazepine drugs like Ativan, Xanax and Valium.

They exert a calming effect by boosting the action of a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the same way as opioids (heroin) and cannabinoids (cannabis) do. This in turn activates the gratification hormone, dopamine, in your brain.

Since the identical brain "reward pathways" are used by both types of drugs, they can be equally addictive. Interestingly, another recent study found that people with higher levels of dopamine in the brain tend to be more prone to addictive behavior, which may explain why some people fall into addiction more easily than others, whether the substance of choice is a prescription drug or an illicit drug.

Unfortunately, pharmaceutical drug abuse has become one of the greatest threats of modern society. In fact, prescription drugs are now used more frequently for the purpose of satisfying addiction than illegal drugs.

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) data show that from 2002 through 2006, rates of prescription narcotics abuse among individuals 18 and older was not only much higher to begin with but increased over the years, while rates of abuse for cocaine, crack, heroin, marijuana, methamphetamine, and MDMA either remained stable or declined.

The National Institutes of Health estimates that nearly 20 percent of people in the United States have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons.

Calm By Nature support a calm confident mood, and is not addictive!


Other Side Effects of Anxiety Drugs

Even if you’re not abusing your medication, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax come with a slew of dangerous and potentially lethal side effects.

The web site www.worstpills.org lists benzodiazepines as “Do Not Use” drugs, as they are addictive, can cause hip fractures, and because there are safer related drugs available.

Common side effects of this class of drugs include:Unsteady gait, and falling Dizziness Increased risk of car accidents Drug induced or drug-worsened impairment of thinking Memory loss Another important point to remember is that older adults have a much more difficult time eliminating benzodiazepines and similar drugs from their bloodstreams. Over time, these drugs can thus accumulate in your body, which will increase your risk of an accidental overdose. Calm By Nature support a calm confident mood, and has not side effects.

In addition, older adults are generally more sensitive to the effects of many of these drugs than are younger adults, so their risk of having a serious adverse drug effect is significantly increased.

This can be a significant risk, considering the fact that some drugs, including Xanax, have also been found to cause or worsen dementia.

The question is, why do so many people rely on drugs to treat their mental health issues, despite the fact that researchers have concluded, again and again, that most of these types of drugs simply don’t work?

Antidepressants, for example, have repeatedly been proven to work only slightly better than a placebo!

Your Mental Health May Be Rooted in Infancy and Early Childhood

Quite a few studies suggest that stressful events that occur during early infancy and childhood can have a significant impact on both your physical and mental/emotional health later on in life.

Medication will merely serve as a Band-Aid to these “patterned” emotional challenges, and most people would greatly benefit from practicing stress reduction techniques and exercise rather than resorting to drugs as their first choice.

Even if you’re not abusing your medication, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax come with a slew of dangerous and potentially lethal side effects.

The web site www.worstpills.org lists benzodiazepines as “Do Not Use” drugs, as they are addictive, can cause hip fractures, and because there are safer related drugs available.

Drug-Free Treatment Options for Anxiety and Depression

I believe cardiovascular exercise is a marvelous physical therapy for anxiety, and others like Dr. James Gordon, a world-renowned expert in using mind-body medicine to heal depression, anxiety and psychological trauma, uses exercise as an essential part of his treatment plan.


“What we’re finding in the research on physical exercise is, the physical exercise is at least as good as antidepressants for helping people who are depressed. And it’s even better for older people,” Dr. Gordon says.

 

“Physical exercise changes the level of serotonin in your brain. It increases your levels of “feel good” hormones, the endorphins. And also -- and these are amazing studies -- it can increase the number of cells in your brain, in the region of the brain, called the hippocampus.

 

… [This is] very important because sometimes in depression, there are fewer of those cells in the hippocampus, but you can actually change your brain with exercise. So it’s got to be part of everybody’s treatment, everybody’s plan.”


If you’re not sure how to use exercise like a drug, including the correct variety, intensity, and frequency, this previous article will help you get started.

Learning to address your stress is imperative both for mental and physical health. Exercise is very helpful for this aspect. Other common stress reduction tools with a high success rate include meditation and yoga, for example.


Other tools that offer impressive results are the inexpensive and highly effective energy psychology techniques such as the Emotional Freedom Technique/Meridian Tapping Technique (EFT/MTT).

 

Consider Your Entire Lifestyle When Combating Anxiety

By using the above mentioned strategies, you can teach your body how to maintain an alert yet relaxed state, which will help strengthen your inherent coping mechanisms when faced with stressful situations that trigger your anxiety symptoms.


Last, but certainly not least, please remember that your mind and mood is significantly affected by your diet!  Calm By Nature support a calm confident mood, and has not side effects.


For an inspiring testament of how one man (who had suffered with a debilitating anxiety disorder for 11 years) managed to resolve his anxiety through dietary changes alone, when everything else had failed, please read this previous article.

 


 

 


 


 

Need to Know About GMO

21 Things You Need to Know About GMO

 

Genetically modified (GM) foods are plants or animals whose genes have been changed in the laboratory by scientists. Recently, GM salmon have taken the spotlight in today's health and consumer news. The FDA will soon decide whether or not to approve GM salmon as food. If approved, the GM salmon will be the first GM animal officially authorized for human consumption in the United States. In a freaky twist of nature, scientists have been able to engineer the salmon 's genes to continually produce growth hormone, which allows them to grow to full size in fewer than 250 days. In nature, it takes around 400 days for an Atlantic salmon to grow.

Read on to learn more about this untested science and what it means for our food supply.

1. The terms "genetically modified organism" (GMO) and "genetically modified foods" (GM foods) refer to plants or animals whose genes have been changed in the laboratory by scientists. All living organisms have genes written in their DNA. They are the chemical instructions for building and maintaining life. By modifying the genes, scientists can alter the characteristics of an organism. In agriculture, genetic engineering allows simple genetic traits to be transferred to crop plants from wild relatives, other distantly related plants, or virtually any other organism. Manipulating the genetics of foods is not new.

- Michael Murray, N.D. and Joseph Pizzorno, N.D., The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods

2. We have entered an era of genetically modified foods, which are just that -- genetically mutated foods that are not necessarily better for you. The health implications not only to humans but also to the environment is a hotly contested debate; the introduction of genetically altered food could have serious consequences, such as allergic reactions and increased resistance to certain antibiotics. Two of the prime targets for genetic engineering -- soy and corn -- are America's cash crops.

- Brenda Watson and Leonard Smith, The Detox Strategy: Vibrant Health in 5 Easy Steps

3. Genetically modified (GM) foods may look and feel the same as conventional foods, but they are drastically (and possibly harmfully) different. These types of foods have been altered by taking the genetic material (DNA) from one species and transferring it into another in order to obtain a desired trait. The FDA does not require any safety testing or any labeling of GM foods, and introducing new genes into a fruit or vegetable may very well be creating unknown results such as new toxins, new bacteria, new allergens, and new diseases."

- M.D. David Brownstein, The Guide to Healthy Eating

4. Apart from the fact that corn contains a high amount of sugar and often a lot of mold, most corn you buy in the United States is genetically modified (GMO). GMO corn was lauded by farmers and biotech firms for its ability to be disease- and pest-resistant and more bountiful. Genetically modified organisms are different from hybridized plants, which are naturally occurring. An example of hybridization is one breed of dog mating with another. An example of a GMO would be mating an eggplant and a dog in a Petri dish, which is, obviously, not naturally occurring. GMOs are not good for us.

- Frank Lipman, Mollie Doyle, Spent: Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Feel Great Again

5. Organically grown soybeans are grown without pesticides and are not from genetically modified seeds. This is an important issue for soy foods in particular, as genetically modified soy crops have increasingly dominated in the agriculture business. Fortunately, there are farmers and manufacturers who are committed to raising and producing organic soy products. The optimal use of soy would be to start early in life and eat a diverse array of soy foods with a total dietary intake of 50 to 150 mg of soy isoflavones per day.

- Tori Hudson, N.D., Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine: Alternative Therapies and Integrative Medicine for Total Health and Wellness

6. If manufacturers are so sure there is nothing wrong with genetically modified foods, pesticides and cloned meats, they should have no problems labeling them as such. After all, cancer will kill one in every two men and one in every three women now alive, reports Samuel Epstein, chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition. Like our ancestors, we act in ways that will bemuse future societies. The military-industrial complex lubricates the mass-agriculture system with fossil fuels. Tons of heavy metals and other hazardous, even radioactive, waste is sprayed on American agricultural soil.

- Adam Leith Gollne, The Fruit Hunters: A Story of Nature, Adventure, Commerce and Obsession

7. The typical North American diet used to be higher in beta-sitosterol, but with increased consumption of processed foods and genetically modified foods, our diet has become relatively deficient. I have no doubt that this deficiency has contributed to the rise in both heart disease and cancer. I recommend supplementing your diet with beta-sitosterol, particularly if you are a woman with breast tenderness, fibrocystic breast disease, or high cholesterol.

- Phuli Cohan, The Natural Hormone Makeover: 10 Steps to Rejuvenate Your Health and Rediscover Your Inner Glow

8. About 90 percent of all soy is genetically modified (GMO). Soy is also one of the top seven allergens, and is widely known to cause immediate hypersensitivity reactions. While in the last forty years soy has occupied an important place in the transition from an unhealthy meat-based diet to vegetarian and vegan cuisine, it is time for us to upgrade our food choice to one having more benefits, and fewer negative possibilities. In 1986, Stuart Berger, MD, placed soy among the seven top allergens -- one of the "sinister seven.”At the time, most experts listed soy around tenth or eleventh.

- Gabriel Cousens, There Is a Cure for Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21-Day+ Program

9. I would avoid any product that contains genetically modified (GMO) corn, because there are still questions regarding the long-term health effects of genetically altered foods on the human body have not been thoroughly tested. Sugars are also sneaked into tons of different foods, especially foods marketed to kids. Again, study the labels carefully before buying.

- Deirdre Imus, Growing Up Green: Baby and Child Care: Volume 2 in the Bestselling Green This! Series (Green This!)

10. Stress increases our nutritional needs, but, sadly, today's standard diet of refined, enriched, preserved, irradiated, genetically modified, pasteurized, homogenized, hydrogenated, and otherwise processed foods doesn't begin to meet our increased nutritional needs. Today's foods are less nutritious than their counterparts of yesteryear, owing largely to methods employed by modern agribusiness to increase agricultural yield and shelf life -- at the expense of nutrient content and consumer health.

- Brenda Watson and Leonard Smith, The Detox Strategy: Vibrant Health in 5 Easy Steps

11. Stop eating unfermented soy and genetically modified corn. While soy and corn are less detrimental and Spent-causing than sugar or gluten, they do add to the body's burden and can throw us out of rhythm. For the last twenty years, soy has been touted as the ultimate replacement for animal protein, fish, and dairy products. The thinking goes that Asian societies are healthier because they eat large amounts of soy. But the truth is that Asian cultures consume soy foods in small amounts (about 2 teaspoons a day) as a condiment and not as a replacement for animal foods.

- Frank Lipman, Mollie Doyle, Spent: Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Feel Great Again

12. Since plants cannot be patented unless genetically modified, drug manufacturers will not research and promote as medicinal any natural foods or herbs, even though they generally result in far less harm and are far less toxic than laboratory drugs. There is simply no huge profit markup in natural healing. Yet diet is most certainly key when all of the research is examined. Dr. Campbell reached the conclusion that "nutrition [is] far more important in controlling cancer promotion than the dose of the initiating carcinogen."

- Susan E. Schenck, The Live Food Factor: The Comprehensive Guide to the Ultimate Diet for Body, Mind, Spirit & Planet

13. We are eating hybridized and genetically modified (GMO) foods full of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and additives that were unknown to our immune systems just a generation or two ago. The result? Our immune system becomes unable to recognize friend or foe -- to distinguish between foreign molecular invaders we truly need to protect against and the foods we eat or, in some cases, our own cells. In Third World countries where hygiene is poor and infections are common, allergy and autoimmunity are rare.

- Mark Hyman MD, The UltraMind Solution: Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First

14. Since the body becomes what we feed it, genetically modified foods and produce will have a negative influence on one's cellular structure.

- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means

15. The FDA's letter to Monsanto regarding its MON810 Bt corn is typical: 'Based on the safety and nutritional assessment you have conducted, it is our understanding that Monsanto has concluded that corn products derived from this new variety are not materially different in composition, safety, and other relevant parameters from corn currently on the market, and that the genetically modified corn does not raise issues that would require premarket review or approval by FDA...."

- Jeffrey M. Smith, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods

16. Laura Krause, like other American farmers who choose not to grow genetically modified corn, are now paying the price for the unwanted consequences of a technology they did not ask for. They are discovering that their economic fate is tied, through the complex connections of the agricultural commodities market, to the efforts of those French farmers to remove Monsanto's fingerprints from their soil, and from the sentiments of European consumers who don't want them in their supermarkets.

- Mark Schapiro, Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What's at Stake for American Power

17. If a farmer with a one-hectare plot plants a single row with genetically modified seed, it will overtake the natural corn in only seven years.

- Michael Murray, N.D. and Joseph Pizzorno, N.D., The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods

18. Cows given genetically modified growth hormones make more milk, but have painful swollen udders, have ulcers, joint pain, miscarriages, deformed calves, infertility, and much shorter life spans. Their milk contains blood, pus, tranquilizers, antibiotics, and an insulin growth factor that can cause a fourfold increase in prostate cancer and sevenfold rise in breast cancer. This is the milk used in our school lunch programs and served to our children. This is the milk that you buy every day. This is the milk used in all cheeses, yogurts, butter, and cream.

- Kevin Trudeau, More Natural Cures Revealed: Previously Censored Brand Name Products That Cure Disease

19. In 1994, the Flavr Savr* tomato (engineered to resist rotting) was the first genetically modified food reviewed and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for human consumption. FDA-employed scientists warned that altered products such as the Flavr Savr® could create toxins in food and trigger allergies. Shockingly, the FDA approved the "Frankenstein" tomato anyway with claims, "... the Flavr Savr passed muster so well that the rigor of its testing will not have to be repeated for other bioengineered foods."

- Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND, DACBN, Health Begins in the Colon

20. The introduction of genetically modified foods (GMO) tampers with the essence of life in an experiment with an unknown outcome and no real way to undue the damage. The FDA purposely does not require labeling of GMO food, since no one who understands the issue would ever purchase it. This makes it all the more difficult to locate healthful food.

21. You are what you eat! It has been documented that eating seedless fruits has decreased the fertility rates of Americans. Eating fish, poultry, and cattle engineered to grow and mature at an abnormal rate has resulted in children growing and maturing at abnormal rates, with weakened internal systems and structures, as well as behavioral problems. Genetically Modified Foods are so dangerous to the genetic structure of people that they have been outlawed in Europe. Any government agency that does not recognized the dangers of Genetically Modified Food is being motived by profit. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:10 that the love of money is the root of all evil. Therefore this activity of Genetically Modified Food is for the love of money, profiteering, and is influenced by demons, not the desire to better the health of the people consuming the products. Genetically Modified Food is tampering with food the way God has ordained it to be, and is motivated by witchcraft . Eating Genetically Modified Food is cursing us as an evil spell upon ourselves and our children’s children!

God is speaking in Hosea 4:6 and He says; My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”.

You have been prophetically warned!
