Positive Empowerment For You

In 2004, Author Dan Buettner gathered a group
of anthropologists, demographers, epidemiologists
and other researchers to travel around the world
to study communities with surprisingly high
percentages of centenarians (people living over 100
years of age).

As this group of experts identified the longest living
cultures, they drew concentric circles (in blue marker)
on a map, ultimately known as Blue Zones. It was a
concerted effort, and a year later, Buettner wrote a
book titled Blue Zones where he describes the every-
day lives of the 5 longest living people groups in
the world.
?? Sardinia, Italy
? Loma Linda, CA
? Ikaria, Greece
? Okinawa, Japan
? Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

Surprisingly, many of these cultures consume a
much higher carb diet than the Western world,
confirming once again that despite all the bad
press, carbs don?t necessarily make you fat.

Of course, there are many other lifestyle factors at
play besides carbohydrate intake if you want to live
to be 100.

When all was said and done, there were 9 things
EACH culture in the ?blue zones? had in common.
?? Large diversity of plant based diet.
? No processed foods
? Strong belief in God (with a strong sense of purpose)
? Social connectivity with family and friends
? Plenty of walking
? Practice forgiveness daily
? Little stress (which is manage well)
? Sleep 8 hours nightly
? No smoking

Heart Surgeon Admits Huge Mistake!

Heart Surgeon Admits Huge Mistake!

By Dwight Lundell, MD

“Without inflammation, cholesterol won't accumulate in blood vessel walls and cause heart disease”

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong… As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.

It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated -- it is quite simply your body's natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well, smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, Stroke, diabetes and obesity.

 

Let me repeat that. The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 (vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods).

Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding. You kept this up several times a day, every day, for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated injury. This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now.

Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation.

While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.

How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?

Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell… When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the works.

When your full cells reject the extra glucose, blood sugar rises producing more insulin and the glucose converts to stored fat.

What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.

While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator — inflammation in their arteries.

Let’s get back to the sweet roll. That innocent looking goody not only contains sugars, it is baked in one of many omega-6 oils such as soybean. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with omega-6 oils for longer shelf life. While omega-6s are essential – they are part of every cell membrane controlling what goes in and out of the cell — they must be in the correct balance with omega-3s.

If the balance shifts by consuming excessive omega-6, the cell membrane produces chemicals called cytokines that directly cause inflammation.

Today’s mainstream American diet has produced an extreme imbalance of these two fats. The ratio of imbalance ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6. That’s a tremendous amount of cytokines causing inflammation. In today’s food environment, a 3:1 ratio would be optimal

and healthy.

To make matters worse, the excess weight you are carrying from eating these foods creates overloaded fat cells that pour out large quantities of pro-inflammatory chemicals that add to the injury caused by having high blood sugar. The process that began with a sweet roll turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally, Alzheimer’s disease, as the inflammatory process continues unabated.

There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.

There is but one answer to quieting inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural state. To build muscle, eat more protein. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation- causing omega-6 fats like corn and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them.

One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil or butter from grass-fed beef.

Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.

The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation.

Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.

What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.

Adrenal Exhaustion Ways to Overcome it.

Posted by Alfio Sorbello on February 27, 2012 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Dr. Cheryl Townsley on Adrenal Stress

“Adrenal Exhaustion & Allergies

 What Does Adrenal Exhaustion Look Like:

increased fatigue

 increased allergies

increased hormone tension (i.e., PMS, mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, etc.)

increased mental depression

memory loss, mental confusion and/or an overall inability to concentrate

increased cravings for sweets

stiffness and/or pain in neck

heart palpitations

increased digestive upset

dry skin and/or hair loss

weight imbalances (i.e., underweight or overweight) especially if excess weight is around the waist area 

 Few doctors think to test adrenal function.  We think the adrenals are like a light switch; they are either working (on switch) or not working at all (off switch).  When they are not working at all, a diagnosis of Addison’s Disease will be given.  If there is no diagnosis of Addison’s, then most practitioners will assume (often mistakenly) that the adrenals are fine.

 The fact is that the adrenals are like any other endocrine gland. They are capable of being on, being off and being on “dimmer”, which means anything in between.  An experienced health care practitioner can find where you are on that spectrum (1-100%), but many don’t think to check.

 The following chart of major complaints and symptoms reflects adrenal stress.  The more of these symptoms you have, the more likely you are moving your adrenal “dimmer” switch towards “0” instead of “100.”  This chart was prepared by John W. Tintera M.D. and is found in his publication,  Hypoadrenocorticism, after studying a group of 200 hypo-adrenal individuals.

 Here is how you can interpret the following chart.  In people with exhausted adrenals, 94% experience excessive fatigue, whereas only 39% had skin breakouts.  If you are finding that you have many of these symptoms, you can be pretty assured you are experiencing adrenal exhaustion.

 

 

Common Complaints & Symptoms:

Fatigue (Excessive)                   94%

PMS Tension                          85% (women)

Mental depression                     79%

Inability to concentrate               77%

Craving for sweets                  75%

Allergies                                  73%

Apprehension                          71%

Headache                                 68%

Weakness                               65%

Pain in neck muscles                 65%

Intervals of confusion                61%

Poor memory                           59%

Heart palpitations                      57%

Stomach distress                       51%

Backache                                 48%

Lightheadedness                        47%

Constipation/Diarrhea                45%

Faintness/Fainting spells             42%

Insomnia                                   40%

Skin breakouts                           39%

Compulsive behavior                  38%

 

 Physical Signs

Low blood pressure                   93%

Dry and/or thin skin                   91%

Scanty perspiration                    91%

Low basal metabolic rate           85%

Sparse body/head hair                83%

  

Adrenal stress is often just diagnosed as “stress” or a psychoneurosis -- a problem that is “only in your head.”  The fact is the problem is in your head and also in your body!

 People with strong adrenal genetics can “bounce back” after periods of prolonged physical, mental or emotional stress.  Those with weaker adrenals do not tend to “bounce back.”  In fact they tend to maintain symptoms for years. 

 Drugs tend to add more stress to the body and do nothing to “nourish” the already taxed adrenals.  Treating a person for a psychoneurosis (i.e., tranquilizers) can often be worse than no treatment at all.

 

Since many people experience allergies and/or inability to lose weight when they have stressed adrenals, it is important to provide the right nourishment and the digestion of this nourishment in order for the adrenals to function.

 Many of you have seen pictures of starving children in Biafra with their thin arms & thin legs, yet extended bellies.  They fill up with fluids because they are starving.  Their bodies retain water to protect the tissues from the acid in the blood caused by the allergenic foods (page 308, The Ultimate Healing System,  Donald Lepore, N.D.).  Many obese people “blow up” for the same reason.

 Virtually all allergies are due to a missing nutrient and the body being in a “stressed” mode --  something is missing, something is “broken” and/or timing of processing is off.  By providing the missing nutrients for common allergies and by supporting the adrenals you can reverse many common “allergies” pretty simply.

 

Common Allergies

The following allergies are common in people with adrenal stress.  The following chart lists common allergies and the nutrients that are supportive in helping the body overcome the allergies.  The key is to remember that allergies indicate stressed adrenals.  The more we can support the adrenals, with these “tweaks,” we can eliminate stress on the body and begin to restore our health.

 

Common Allergies                

Fat allergies                  Fats include: mayonnaise, meat fats (all meats), milk fats, ice cream and all oils.

Sulfur is the missing mineral . A liquid sulphur is important here!

Sulphur deficiency comes from over consumption of fatty foods, smoking and living in a polluted environment.

Sulphur deficiency can show up in sluggish lymphatic issues, as a result of having the tonsils removed, and excess phlegm (especially in the throat area).

Sunshine is helpful to clear fat allergies.

Foods rich in sulphur include:  bananas, eggs, garlic and onions.

 

         Wheat allergies             Wheat foods include:  wheat-based foods, breads, pasta, tortillas, crackers -- anything with wheat or whole wheat in it.

Magnesium is the missing mineral.

Foods rich in magnesium include:  kelp (green powders), almonds, cashews, green leafy vegetables, apples and figs.

Magnesium deficiencies can show as: gall stones, kidney stones, premature wrinkles, impaired protein metabolism, constipation and diabetes.

Fatty acids help with wheat allergies (i.e., Barlean’s flaxseed oil, fish oil, coconut oil lecithin).

Those with wheat allergies tend to sunburn more easily (comes from using up Vitamin F ? the fat vitamin ? which is why the fats are so important).

Coconut oil is an excellent antidote for sunburns due to wheat allergies.

 

Corn allergies               Corn allergies are similar to wheat allergies in that magnesium and fats are helpful to alleviate it.

Potassium and magnesium are the missing minerals.

Foods rich in potassium include:  raw juices (carrot, dandelion, beet tops, cabbage, parsley and other dark green leafy vegetables), potatoes, oranges, tomatoes, bananas, kelp, parsley, apricots and dates.

A physical sign of potassium deficiency is when the right corner of the mouth dips down.  (A turn-down of the left corner of the mouth indicates a sodium deficiency)

Milk allergies                Potassium is the missing mineral. Foods rich in potassium include:  raw juices (carrot, dandelion, beet tops, cabbage, parsley and other dark green leafy vegetables), potatoes, oranges, tomatoes, bananas, kelp, parsley, apricots and dates.

A physical sign of potassium deficiency is when the right corner of the mouth dips down.  (A turn-down of the left corner of the mouth indicates a sodium deficiency)

 

Yeast allergies              Yeast-related foods include:  yeast, barley, cherries, millet, potatoes, prunes, raisins, rye and walnuts.

Zinc is the missing mineral.

Zinc deficiencies can show as: enlarged prostate, loss of fertility, lowered resistance to infection, slow wound healing skin issues, hair loss and dandruff.

Foods rich in zinc include: lean beef, beef liver, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, cashews, tuna, peanuts.

 

Rice allergies                Rice-related foods include: cinnamon, blueberries, grapes, strawberries, watermelon, wine and pumpkin as well as rice.

Manganese is the missing mineral.

Manganese deficiencies can show as:  tinnitus (especially left ear), sterility, male impotence, sexual indifference, loss of muscle strength and soft tissue bruising (i.e., breast tissue).

Many health food store products use rice as a base for multi-cap vitamins and B vitamins.  People with rice allergies are unable to utilize these products.

Foods rich in manganese include: whole grains, wheat germ, nuts, beans, egg yolks and sunflower seeds.

 

                     Oatmeal allergies          Iron is the missing mineral.

Inorganic sources of iron do not antidote this problem ? must be from a whole-food source (yellow dock is one of the best herbs for iron) for the body to assimilate it.

Iron deficiencies can show as:  anemia, brittle hair, difficulty swallowing, digestive disturbances, dizziness, fragile bones, hair loss, inflammation of the tissue around the mouth, obesity, pallor (being pale), and slowed mental reactions.

Foods rich in iron include:  eggs, fish, liver, meat, poultry, green leafy vegetables and whole grains.

 

Citrus allergies  Citrus-related foods include:  oranges, lemons, grapefruit, tangerines, pineapple, cantaloupe and tomatoes.

         Calcium is the missing mineral.

Calcium deficiencies can show as: muscle cramps, tingling in arms and legs, fragile bones, brittle nails, joint pains, tooth decay, nervousness, mental depression and irritability.

Foods rich in calcium include:  dairy products, dark green leafy vegetables, sesame sees, oats, almonds, walnuts and sunflower seeds.

Comfrey (the herb or as tea) can be helpful in these situations.

 

Nightshades                  Nightshade foods include:  potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, pepper and tobacco.

Niacin (Vitamin B3) is the missing vitamin.

Niacin deficiencies can show as:  grouchiness, nervous system stress, poor carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, inadequate production of hydrochloric acid, inadequate bile secretion, poor cholesterol balancing and poor circulation.

Foods rich in niacin include:  beef liver, brewer’s yeast, broccoli, carrots, dates, eggs, fish, and whole wheat products.

 

 

Where do you start to get what you need?

Basic Protocol:

1.  Reduce Stress

2.  New Phyto Multi vitamin and mineral complex (plant based, standardized minerals)

3.  Digestive enzyme and probiotic

4.  Phytosterol -  Plant sterol complex from plants ( supports Adrenals)

5.  Improve diet

6.  Exercise

7.  Water

8.  Rest

 

 

Basic strategies to reduce stress and thereby reduce/eliminate allergies:

1. Reduce Stress

1. Have a “start” time and “stop” time to your day

2. Get adequate rest!

3. Exercise

4. Drink plenty of purified water

5. R&R Pose

6. Learn to say “NO!”

 

1. Add MINERALS!

1. Phyto- mineral and vitamin complex contains the important trace minerals and everything is absorbed!

 

1. Eat Whole Foods - these foods have more nutrients compared to packaged foods.

 

1. Add a Digestive Enzyme (s) and Probiotic

               General Enzyme – glyconutrient pro biotic

 

1. Support the Adrenals ? under stress the body needs help

1. Wild yam supplement – plant sterol

2. Protein - protein drink from protein source that is non-allergenic to your body glyco protein drink

3. Minerals  (phyto complex for vits and mins)

 

1. Balance Blood Sugar

1. Eliminate sugar, processed foods and canned foods from the diet

2. Sodium-rich foods such as salads (dark leafy greens), alfalfa

3. Protein - protein drink

4. Digestive enzyme for protein – glyco enzyme

Chromium – Phyto min and vit complex

5. B-vitamins – Phyto min and vit complex  -  You may need to add additional B6 – 50 mg per day.

 

1. Add Exercise

a.  Best exercise to start is either rebounding (miniature trampolines), walking or bicycling

b.  Adding leg raises and sit-ups helps strengthen core muscles which also strengthens the organs in the core of the body.

 

1. Clean Environment

1. Eliminate the use of aluminum cookware and also Teflon- swiss diamond  ware (Robins Kitchens) excellent for cooking

2. Use filtered water (Wellness Water -) for drinking and cooking
