If Our Body is Stuck in Stress Mode, There Is No Healing!

Category : Diseases , News , Sleep

Sometimes we learn our lessons by peeling back the layers of our life. Sometimes we keep repeating the same lessons like the ‘Ground Hog Day’ which the character kept experiencing the same day over and over. Sometimes we don’t want to look because it hurts too much or we just don’t want to deal with the emotions, it’s easier to just think than to feel. People fear the unknown, because we don’t know what we will find when we do look at it.
As human beings we will deal with stress in our lives; with our outward busy lives and living with unconscious trigger patterns, our body’s stress levels get stuck and don’t shut down. We become caught in our Sympathetic Nervous System, which is our FIGHT OR FLEE‘ response and freeze there. When that happens the body’s nervous system is maladaptive and the body’s healing stops. There isn’t any rest and digest activation from the Parasympathetic Nervous System. The body must be in a calm state in order perform it’s healing processes. You can take all the supplements, healthy food etc., but the body will react to them, unable to absorb the nutrients because of the internal stand still. For the body to heal it has to be in a healing state…CALM is the healing state.
Awareness is the first way to interrupt unconscious trigger patterns, living life with your eyes wide open. We  go to our mind to escape our emotions, instead we need to consciously become aware of what’s happening in our system for us to be ready to change our mindset. Then, learning to stop these patterns of thinking and behavior so we can shift and calm the nervous system. Some tools to use are: breathing slow and deep, mindfulness, meditation. This helps to calm our mind and come back into our body.  Sometimes we need to digest past emotions which haven’t been processed and have been held in our body, such as past traumas that need to be worked through so we can move ahead.
Transform is the key answer, dealing with underlying issues such as why do we go into our mind to escape our emotions in the first place? We may not feel safe, so we  try and think our way to safety. We may not feel loved, thus we need to learn to respect, care, and love the special person that we are. This is the core to a new heart so we can take care of ourself and come into a new body and a new home.
We are all in this together,
Encouragement to you all,
Marie

What They Aren’t Telling You About Viral Disease.

To all concerned readers,

Were we suddenly dumped into the Twilight Zone? It sometimes feels like it. Pandemic sounds scary, but it simply refers to a new disease that’s been reported globally. COVID-19, a respiratory virus, is both a global and new disease, but even the WHO (World Health Organization) has pointed out that it’s controllable by taking reasonable precautions; there are other viruses that have done more damage this year than the Coronavirus. What you haven’t heard is that 16,000 people have died and over 280,000 have been hospitalized from the influenza (regular flu) virus this season. Fear creates stress within our body and will continue to deplete our immune system; thus good quality sunshine, movement; getting outdoors reduces the effects that stress creates. Knowledge prevents fear. It’s important to support our immune system in order to combat any outside virus and bacterias that can challenge our body. What we eat does affect our immune system. Eating a nutrient-dense diet is one of the best and non-negotiable ways to support our immune health. Read about immune health: 
http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/2020/04/kickstarting-and…ur-immune-system/

It is important to eliminate refined sugars and processed carbohydrates, seed and vegetable oils, (these are all transfats), artificial ingredients, processed foods and junk foods; instead focus on a diet that is abundant in greens, veggies, fruits, raw seeds and nuts, spices (such as turmeric, ginger and cinnamon) and healthy fats. Stay well hydrated throughout the day and use a high quality sea salt to help with electrolytes. Of course use good hygiene practices, washing often with soap and water is so important and safer than the chemically ladened antiseptic hand sanitizers, in maintaining one’s health. If you won’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin. Hulda Clark wrote,” One hundred percent of cancer patients have the solvent isopropyl alcohol accumulated in their liver and in their cancerous tissues.” This solvent is the main ingredient in these products. At this point there aren’t any antiviral medications that can combat the virus, and no vaccines to prevent it. What to do? Dr. Andrew W. Saul, an international expert on vitamin therapy, states “The Coronavirus can be drastically slowed or stopped completely with the immediate widespread use of high doses of Vitamin C. Bowel tolerance levels (if you get gassy or diarrhea, then you take less) of C taken in divided doses throughout the day is a clinically proven antiviral without equal”. It’s not a cure for the virus. But it’s been tested in China on those affected and all the experts agree that Vitamin C combined with a healthy lifestyle boosts and supports your immune system. Vitamin C also helps to prevents colds and flu. Also, according to Dr. Saul, our body’s cancer cells receptors receive in glucose. Remember, sugar feeds cancer.  But interestingly, those same receptors will take in Vitamin C which heals that same cancer cell back into a healthy cell. Make sure you also keep your Vitamin D and Zinc levels up. Here’s to your health! Your immune health! Check out our book for additional health information. http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/about/

Pain Is Not The Ultimate Enemy

To my Readers,

Americans have become the most pain conscious people on the face of the earth. Through the bombardment of the media, pain is to be banned as though it were the ultimate evil. As a result, this nation has escalated the slightest ache into a soaring ordeal. We know very little about pain and what we don’t know makes it hurt worse.
The most ignored fact of all pain is that the best way to eliminate it is to eliminate its abuse. People are very intolerant of any type of pain and just reach for a pill. The purpose of these drugs is to kill the pain, but it cannot cure it or take it away. Most of the pain is of unknown cause, and most people have been told that they have to learn to cope and live with this pain through pain management techniques. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work well at all, and many are caught in a web of deceit and despair, continually taking more drugs.
Many painkilling drugs actually make the pain worse.  Thus, creating many unwanted side effects, adding more toxins to the already inflamed body which intensifies the pain, and the drugs will start the addictive process within the body. It is a vicious cycle that has to stop but many won’t. People are more afraid of pain and disease than death itself, but they continue to take the avenue that leads them there. Pain is the warning system of the body that something is wrong and needs to be checked and adjusted.
Other than accidents, trauma, and surgeries most pain is because of the toxins in our environment, the diet we partake in, lack of movement/exercise, and the stress we put upon ourselves. It all compounds and our body suffers. Getting rid of the processed foods with its toxins and eating an organic whole-food plant-based diet will give the body a chance to heal and eliminate the pain. Hydrate well. Movement will start to come more freely. In my case, my diet was creating a huge pain problem for me. Click and read to find out how I overcame the pain: http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/2019/01/gmos/ and http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/2018/11/excessive-protein-problems/
Keep a food, mood, and poop journal (buy a large notebook) and record everything you eat each day, how your body feels throughout the day; how often, how much hydration you do, and how well you eliminate your toxins through your stools. Also how well you sleep each night and you will be able to see for yourself the different triggers that bring on your pain…just have the sense enough to eliminate that trigger. Sometimes what we do and eat is hurting us.

The Prevention and Reversals of Cancers

Category : Diseases , News

To my family of readers,

Cancer rates are rising, despite the money poured into cancer research, they claim that no cure has been discovered. In the United States for example, cancer is responsible for one in every four deaths. It’s prevalence looms over each person, fostering its fear and loss of emotional control. Cancer is a disease that plagues the already depleted and exhausted body, making it unable to respond to its natural innate healing. Resorting to the conventional treatments only erodes the person’s immune defenses even further, doing more damage than good; serving as a temporary slowdown, and leaving the door open for future recurrence. Now there is called a new theory, cancer may not be called a “disease”, but it is a maladaptive response to ongoing stress. Normal cells divide 50-60 times and then die…cancer cells divide forever.
The foods we eat DO have a real impact on our health, including whether cancer cells are able to gain a foothold. We DO also have control over our risk of cancer.
There are some foundational principles (non-negotiable) that need to be applied into your life if you want to reduce your risk of cancer. You can’t just treat the symptoms you need to address the cause.
Strengthening your immune system so it is always ready to do its innate healing. Supporting your body with foods that will help that process. Strong food therapy is the best and ONLY way to have victory over cancer. Whole plant-based foods is the most powerful way to feed our body. Rich in enzymes, anti-oxidants, nutrients that enable our body to function and heal optimally. Avoid all refined sugars, refined flours, unhealthy fats, and processed carbohydrates, as these all spike the blood sugar, adding stress to the body which increases our cortisol (stress hormones). Remember stress is a precursor to cancer. Buy organic, non-GMO foods as much as possible for your body’s health. Fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds are digested well and support the immune and digestive systems. Getting rid of all processed foodstuffs which rob the body of its nutrients and health. Avoid alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, preservatives, additives, etc. Also buy environmentally-friendly household, bath and beauty products which are safer to use.

Kickstarting and Protecting Our Immune System

To all my readers,

Your immune system is a complex network of white blood cells, organs and tissues of the lymph system.This system is spread throughout your entire body, protecting and defending your body from microorganisms and foreign predators, such as bad bacterias, viruses, parasites, or fungi; within your body there exists a terrain of bacteria that helps you to ward off these antigens,  It is a system of communication amongst its army of cells involved to defend against cellular damage to the rest of the entire body thus keeping your body in homeostasis, In a healthy state, your immune system is just monitoring and resting, it’s not in attack mode.
This is the time of the year when people seem to get more ‘colds and flu’. The weather changes to cooler, people are cooped up indoors  and aren’t getting outside to get fresh air and exercise, the holidays and all their busy fanfare, also all the sugary treats and other foods the body isn’t used to. It seems that there is more stress on your body at this time of the year, and that plays in as exhaustion which lowers your immune health. 70% of your immune system is right in your gut, this is the first layer of immunity.  What we need to do during the rest of the year is to build a strong immune support network for ourselves. How do we do this you ask? Immune system depleters include: excess sugar consumption, alcohol consumption, a Standard American Diet with its anti-nutrient foods. Frequent exposure to infectious agents. Stress is a biggie. Stress directly inhibits many functions of your immune health. Severe trauma from surgery or accident also stresses the body.  Stress increases your body’s production of cortisol which blunts your immune health. Vaccines and regular antibiotic use can cause a depression of the immune response for one to two weeks minimum. Fevers are your body’s response to fight the inward microorganisms, so taking aspirin or Tylenol is thwarting this process. Cool water washes will help decrease high temperatures, allowing your body’s healing process to continue. Lack of sleep suppresses the Natural Killer cell activity. It’s interesting, because with more hours of darkness at this season of the year our body tends to desire more rest, so why do we push it beyond what it needs? Being too clean can inhibit your immune system from functioning properly. Cleaning and disinfecting seems like the best, but it can be too much of a good thing. Practice good hygiene, but don’t go overboard. While trying to avoid foreign pathogens you don’t want to unintentionally minimize the good bacteria in your inner environment.

To your good health,
Marie


Dangers Are Lurking, How To Keep Our Pets Healthy

My  Readers,

We are going to reach out to a different population, something out of the ordinary, but still in the line of health and wellness. Who is it you may ask? The population I will be speaking about is the canines and felines/dogs and cats. They need health as much as their owners do. If your pet is sick quite often, then you must look at your own diet and environment.
Glyphosate has become a health hazard for our pets, insects, and people. It is the active ingredient in Roundup and is found in the bodies of 93% of humans tested–the amount found in a dog’s body is a full 5,000 percent more than in humans. It is not just a toxin, but an antibiotic that interferes with enzymatic pathways in the many bacterias of your animal’s gut health. Your dog will be exposed to it every time he goes for a walk. The parks, fields, schools are treated and the animals pick it up on their paws as they run through it. Cats who are not housebound will come in contact with glyphosate as well. When the animal comes home be sure to wash their paws very carefully after their trip outdoors. It’s also in their foods if they have commercial pet foods, and those who have canned foods have more. Kibbles have the even higher levels, with grain-free kibbles having the highest levels! The move by the pet food manufactures away from corn and soy to fillers like oats, pea protein, chickpeas and lentils is the main reason. These products tested in human study deliver the highest glyphosate levels to the consumer. They are sprayed just before harvest to make the process easier. http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/2018/11/why-are-there-so-many-wheat-allergies/
GMO’s are another problem for the animal species.Dr. Michael Fox, veterinarian stated, “The creation of GMO’s GE BioTechnology as the last step for the human species to tamper with the earth’s regulatory and creative process. It’s the invasion on the sanctity of life purely for human profit.” Animals are now getting human diseases. Soon after genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) were introduced into the food supply, many veterinarians noticed an decline in the health of dogs and cats. Allergies, chronic diarrhea, itching, immediate symptoms; but cancers and shorter lifespans were later reported. Many people have done a dietary switch to their pets diets to non-GMO and organic diets. The improvements  were remarkable, were stated by more than 3.200 pet owners. http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/2019/01/gmos/
Xylitol has dangerous toxic properties for dogs.  It is a sugar alcohol commonly used for baking, in chewing gum, candies, peanut butters, chewable  vitamins, some toothpastes, and throat lozenges. If the dog consumes any the animal will be dead in less than a half an hour. To prevent such poisonings, recognize that dogs have a huge sweet tooth and are very short on judgement and do act accordingly. Don’t leave any of these tasty items laying around.
According to many veterinarians interviewed the raw homemade diet with organic  grass-fed organ meats and vegetables is the best diet for your pet. Be sure though to separate and refrigerate all raw pet food from human grade foods, washing only the produce,  not the raw meats.
The next best diet is the nutritionally balanced homemade cooked  food diet. Do not microwave any of your pets foods, whether thawing or cooking. I repeat do not! Also, do not thaw your pet’s meats in water.
Stepping down in quality, is the commercially available balanced raw food diet in freezer packs. and dehydrated or freeze-dried raw diet.
Worse are the canned and pouch foods.
Bottom of the list is the cooked homemade human food, because of the processing, chemicals and toxins that are in these foods.
THE REASON TO CHOOSE RAW;
*It’s a species appropriate diet for dogs and cats.
*Raw boosts their immune system and helps  them to avoid common diseases and chronic illnesses. Raw foods along with exercise and sunshine will help your pets stay well.
*Pets can handle a higher bacteria level than humans, but nonetheless their raw meats, poultry, seafood should be consumed within seven days.
*The meats in Raw Pet Food comes from the same suppliers as human food. Human grade suppliers, which are the ones that sell to grocery stores and also Food grade suppliers (which sell condemned meat that is sold for every other style of pet food).
*Standard processed pet foods use poor quality ingredients  and dangerous substances, preservatives, additives, colors, flavor enhancers, and other dangerous non-nutritive substances that are added to extend their shelf life and make them palatable.
Raw and fermented foods are best:
*berries and fruits; which are high sources of probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and more.
*bone-broth; highly recommended as a food source for any dog. It adds moisture, free amino acids and joint nutrients.
*organ meats; make sure you purchase meats from a local farmer or make sure that the meats are organic-grass fed sources.
*fermented  vegetables; they are high in probiotics, vitamins and fiber.
*organic pitted and skinned avocados; are one of a dog’s favorite foods, rich in vitamins, minerals, helps the dog’s coat to shine and gives vitality and energy.
There has been some discrepancy on the internet on the avocados being poison to animals. I had a friend research the source and he said that goats who can eat anything, but the leaves of the avocado trees were extremely toxic to these animals. Therefore, the bottom line is my friend claims she will continue to feed her dogs fresh avocados every day.
Talk to your veterinarian about pet food nutrition and they may help to provide recommendations on raw and pet foods that are safe and healthy for your pets.
(If don’t have any pets, pass this information on to your friends and family members who do.)

Is Your Cell Phone Emitting Radiation IntoYour Body?

My dear readers,

The government issued a nuclear bomb to be tested in the desert of New Mexico 120 miles south of Albuquerque in 1945; and then 2 atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki which ended the war with Japan. The radiation in the environment and the injury and death toll that followed was in the hundreds of thousands. The effects of the radiation continues to this day. Nevada tested many nuclear bombs in their desert from 1951 through 1996 with people there observing these events until ceased by the United Nations. Human beings were used as guinea pigs in these experiments, according to the ones that survived the trauma.
I have studied the effects of high-frequency radiation on the human body as part of my precursor to the field of Radiology. I worked in the field of Radiology for 25 plus years and we were continuously hounded to shield, to protect ourselves and our patients from radiation exposure. We had to be advocates for our patients so they wouldn’t be over-exposed. As an after thought, our brains were still getting radiation, the head and brain could not be protected. Hmmm.
But low-frequency radiation can have detrimental and long term effects on the body also. We aren’t told of these dangers, nor given any safety or protection from them. They are just deemed as safe to use. Just like the ‘guinea pigs’ of the 1940’s and ’50’s, we all believed them. But radiation is radiation and it is accumulative. It doesn’t leave the body, but it scatters around inside the body creating DNA damage, sometimes as bad as cancers.
Forms of electromagnetic radiation come from a large variety of sources;  which include microwaves, cordless phones, cell phones, bluetooth, computers, Wi-Fi, smart TV’s, television and radio broadcasts, power lines, fitness tracking devices, gaming systems, even some fish tanks, and of course ultra violet waves, x-rays, and gamma rays. The 5G towers are our new danger. 5G means the cell phone industry is installing millions of small cell antennas on lamp posts, buildings, and power poles all over the world (+13 million in the US alone) SIGNIFICANTLY increasing radiation level. We are always practically bathed in EMF’s.  Your cell phone is the strongest source of radiation that you carry with you daily. When not being used signals are sent out almost continuously. By default, these close range radiation pulses go through your body, even in standby mode, and these EMF’s impact our health in subtle and powerful ways. That is to say they have a adverse biological effect on our cells and their health.
If cell phones are so dangerous, then how come I’m not affected, you may say. This is the crucial thing to understand, you don’t feel the invisible rays of electricity either, but it does affect us also. Cell phones emit radio-frequency radiation which is a type of EMF. The health of our cells determines the health of our bodies and how we feel. When we examine the biological sites of cancer and cell phone use, the cell phones are always near the areas the cancer has originated. For example, people are getting tumors the same side of the head as they use their cell phone, cancers show up where one carries their phone. The studies keep pouring in and are conclusive. “Clear evidence of cancer” from cell phone radiation, concludes an extensive 10 year $30 million US federal study.
When I used to use my cell phone during  conversations it felt like it was heating up, then I put the X spots on all of my EMF appliances with the thought they would absorb all of the radiation that was emitting from the phone, (at least I was told that and believed it). It toned the heat down so I thought I was fine. But in my research I found out that is not true! These X spots only reduces the radiation, it does not take it away. I had to get rid of my cordless phone and electric clock radio also because when plugged in they would interrupt my sleep. I unplug my WiFi and turn off all EMF devices at least an hour before I go to sleep.
Research shows the biological effects of EMF’s are widespread; genetic effects, cellular and molecular effects, behavioral changes (especially in children), effects on the nervous system and brain, impaired learning, impaired fertility, metabolic effects, depressed immune system, hormonal disturbance, sleeping disorders, cardiovascular problems and blood brain barrier damage.
The WHO (World Health Organization) found that “Regular use of a cell phone by adults can significantly increase the risk of gliomas by 40% with 1640 hours or more of use.” What that means is: Gliomas are a type of tumor in the brain or spine that are malignant and deadly. Survival rates are generally 1 to 3 years after diagnosis. And 1640 hours equates to about 30 minutes per day over 10 years. These cancers are the most common cancer-related death of young adults aged 15-39. These cancers represent 80% of all malignant tumors. In fact, 24 hours of EMF exposure can cause more DNA damage than 1000 chest X-rays. We need to protect ourselves and our children from this harmful radiation.
There are some ways to protect ourselves from cell phone radiation.
1. Make Airplane Mode your best friend, or completely shut
it off. (some phones you will need to deactivate WiFi
and Bluetooth manually.)
2. Limit calls to those that are absolutely necessary.
3. Avoid using your phone next to your ear, (like the
inverse square law…it limits your potential exposure.)
hold it at least one-foot from your body and on speaker mode.
4. Don’t sleep with your cell phone turned on at night.
5. Use your phone only in conditions of optimal reception.
(avoid basement underground, or elevator use.)
Stand next to window or outside as much as possible.

I am concerned!
