Dangers Are Lurking, How To Keep Our Pets Healthy

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; separate and refrigerate all raw pet food from human grade foods, only washing the produce, not the raw meats. Next best is the nutritionally balanced cooked homemade 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, 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 Cellphone 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 1600 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!

Our Body’s Inner Powerhouse

Category : Allergies , Arthritis , BPA , Diseases , News

My family of readers,

The liver is the heaviest and largest organ in our body and  it is capable of handling more than five hundred functions for your body; if it’s kept healthy. In fact, every drop of blood filters through your liver every three minutes and there are 65,000 known enzymatic reactions that occur during that process. Your liver processes everything you consume.
An impaired liver can exhibit symptoms of disease such as digestive disorders, constipation, fatigue, food sensitivities and allergies, hay fever, infertility, arthritis, hormone imbalance, diabetes, obesity, blood sugar issues, cholesterol problems, blood pressure, and hypertension, as well as others.
Some of the functions of the liver include:
Aids in the digestive process; Controls the bile production; Regulates the storage of fats; Processes enzymes and nutrients; Manufactures glycogen (thus helping to stabilize the blood sugar levels); Controls production and secretion of cholesterol; Maintains hormone balance; Detoxifies toxins and poisons from the blood; Synthesizes our medications and processes and purifies drug residues; Discharges wastes; Metabolizes alcohol;  Manages the chemicals in the blood; It associates and assists with the immune system functions;  Removes bacteria and general foreign particles from the blood; It is a reservoir for the fat soluble vitamins and some minerals such as iron and copper; Manufactures, stores and recycles proteins, also synthesizes blood-clotting proteins and proteins for fluid part of the blood (plasma); Recycles the red blood cells by breaking them down and their constituents are reused. The liver is responsible for regenerating its own damaged tissues even if 90% of it has been removed; it will grow back to normal size if there isn’t any disorder that can weaken the organ itself. So it is very important to keep your body’d powerhouse healthy and clean so it can detox and function, thus allowing our body’s systems to work together. Too much protein, sugars, simple carbs and enzyme deficient foods in our diets are a burden. Overeating burdens the liver. Alcohol causes inflammation to the liver, as too many toxins and not enough exercise distress its functions. Balance is crucial. Be kind to our bodies, clean up our environment of toxins and plastics (which have BPA) read: The Dangers of BPA. Clean up ur bodies by eating the best foods; non-GMO’s and Organic only.

For our best health,
Marie


How Does Stress Impact Your Digestion?

Category : Diseases , News

All of my readers,

Stress will confront all of us at one time or another, but some people do live in the constant state of stress. This  article is to let you know what is at stake when you decide to eat and you are dealing with a strong emotional issue. How does this affect your body? Eating under stress can be one of the worst things you can do. Under any type of stress, whether physical or emotional, the digestive processes are inhibited and digestion is always suspended. Indigestion will be the end result.
The reason that the digestion is halted during stress is because the manufacture and flow of the body’s secretions needed for the digestive process depends on nerve energy. Nerve energy is transmitted to all of the organs of the body through a intricate network of the nervous system. Stress causes this to fault.
The esophagus during stress may tend to spasm, sometimes so bad that it feels like a heart attack is occurring. Also the emotions can make the swallowing of foods difficult or increase the amount of air, thus bloating, burping, gassiness, or even reflux issues may become a problem.
The second part of the digestive tract is the stomach. Stress adds too much pressure on the digestive systems with any or all of the digestive secretions–enzymes, gastric juice, pancreatic juice, intestinal juice, bile–may be held up or even depleted, and the digestion while in process when this inhibition happens is temporarily suspended. Therefore, the undigested foods that are held up in the stomach undergoes fermentation and putrefaction. Next to overeating, mental influences cause most of the digestive impairments which people tend to suffer. During these stressful times it’s best to skip the meal and wait until the next one when you can be more comfortable and calm.
The bowel itself can become spasmodic when at the height of stress and digestion which can make it very painful. Gas production related to nutrient absorption can increase. There can be bouts of diarrhea and or constipation. Stress can make the intestinal walls weaker and allow gut bacteria to enter into the body. The immune system usually does its job cleaning, but when in the state of continual stress there becomes an overload which creates inflammation and chronic disease.
It’s time to reset our priorities and take better care of our bodies. Check out the other source on the stress related diseases. http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/

TIPS ON REDUCING STRESS

*Stress management  through the diet, eat organic as much as possible.
*Relaxation and Meditation
*Practice deep breathing, do 10 slow ones each hour. This helps
to alleviate the problems in the body created by stress.
*Exercise…movement daily
*Talk about your troubles to a friend who will listen and tell give
you truthful feedback.
*Relaxing your mind.
*Write out a worry list.
*Set priorities…Develop management
skills.
*make a list of is the most important to the least, cross off as they are done.
*Be realistic in your goals.
*Do not procrastinate!
*Do two  random acts of kindness each day.
*Prayer…should be at the top of the list.

Relax!

Chewing Well: A New Concept to Wellness

Tags :

Category : Allergies , Arthritis , Diseases , News , Sleep

My readers,

Do you eat on the run, in a hurry, just putting food in your mouth but barely, not even tasting it? When you finish eating your meal, how does your body really feel? Do you feel stuffed, bloated, gassiness, burping, bad breath, heartburn/reflux issues, acid stomach, intestinal issues, tired/letdown, pain issues in abdomen, joints and muscles? Do you ever eat so fast that some food sticks in your throat, or goes into your trachea, and you end up with a coughing fit? Do you end up so stuffed about a half-hour after you eat that you can’t button your pants? Do you have to stay in the bathroom because things just didn’t go down the way they should and it’s coming out all ‘wrong’? Does your stool contain the visibility of your meal?
Well, I have good news for you! First of all, you are not alone. The cause has a simple solution. Your food that you just ‘inhaled’, and barely chewed, is the cause of your problem. What I mean by that is, the insufficient chewing of the foods of your meal has created undigestible ‘chunks’, that cannot be digested and assimilated by your body in that state. The mechanical process of digestion starts with chewing, stimulates the saliva and enzymes as well as relaxing the esophagus and prepares the stomach for its entry. Well-chewed foods glides easily through your esophagus and into your stomach. Chewing relaxes the lower end of your stomach, the pylorus; this muscle must be relaxed in order for the food to leave your stomach and pass into the small intestine. So optimal chewing creates sufficient saliva to help your food through your digestive system in a healthy manner. Undigested foods can ‘leak’ (permeability) through your colon’s lining and end up in your body causing food allergies and autoimmune issues. The unchewed foods has a more difficult journey through the entire digestive and the metabolic chain process. So chewing your foods real well, giving yourself time to eat, relaxed, is going to help your digestive system function as it was created to do and your digestive problems will become a thing of the past. New habits start slow, conscious before unconscious, so thinking, relaxing and chewing; is the new pattern.

I’m rooting for you!

How Does Aluminum Impact Our Health?

All of my readers,

Almost every person is poisoned by deposits of heavy metals in some form or another in our lifetime. They come from our environment, the foods that we ingest, cosmetics, body care products, household products, and vaccines. Aluminum also may come from cooking, preparing and storing foods in aluminum containers. ​  I gave up all aluminum cookware including foil when I realized its dangers. It is considered a heavy metal to our body and is accumulative; therefore it can be difficult to eliminate it from the body, as it will remain until a cleansing diet or fast is followed. While a detox is in effect one can sometimes taste the metal that is being excreted, along with other uncomfortable symptoms.  Aluminum is a known neurotoxin and any exposure to aluminum has been implicated in neurological disease, including Alzheimer’s disease and Autism. Aluminum tends to build up in the brain  and the fat cells of the body until it reaches its “toxic threshold”. When aluminum is combined with any other heavy metal such as mercury it can threaten a dangerous overload for the body which can be extremely toxic, especially to the neurons in the brain, to the point of their death.
Toxicity symptoms may include: confusion, muscle weakness, bone pain, deformities and fractures, seizures, speech problems. and in children slow growth. I did a Google search on ways of removing only aluminum from the body. One way, research studies have demonstrated, Silicon-rich mineral waters up to one-liter per day for twelve weeks effectively reduced aluminum via the urine without any harmful effects on the essential metals such as iron and copper. Fuji water is rich in Silica-rich water and contains 83mg of Silica per 
liter. I personally cannot contest this, but if it works? This is for just aluminum, do labs to check with any other heavy metal exposure. Those require other measures.

Enzymes Are They Life-Saving?

Our readers,

Enzymes make the whole body function and work efficiently. They are tiny protein chemicals that carry an essential energy source needed for every chemical action and reaction that happens within your body. All of life, plants or animal, requires enzymes to live. Enzymes mean life and are life.
There are three classes of enzymes.  First, there are the metabolic enzymes, which is your body’s life force, that means every action, reaction, and activity of your body depends on them. If you didn’t have these metabolic enzymes you couldn’t swallow, blink your eyes, or breathe. What about  blood circulation, heart beat,  digestion or processing of your food into blood, muscle, and bone, walking and talking or any other life giving process? Your immune and lymph system depends on these metabolic enzymes. Now, there is one very important fact about these enzymes that you must be made aware of. According to Harvey Diamond, ” The body can only produce an finite/limited number of these metabolic enzymes. That means your body can only produce a certain amount of metabolic enzymes and no more! When they run out and they will, it is called Death.”  So the fewer of these metabolic enzymes your body requires and uses the healthier you will be and the longer you will live.
The second type is called digestive enzymes. The digestive process begins in the mouth with amylase from the salivary glands to digest starches; and lingual lipase from the tongue starts the digestion of fats in the stomach. Pepsin is released in the stomach to begin protein digestion. Of course, the rest of the digestion secretes its designated enzymes.
We now come quickly to our last one, food enzymes. All raw foods contain their own active enzyme which allows some rest to the digestive system, since it doesn’t need help from the metabolic or digestive enzymes.  Foods help keep us alive; fact, stop eating and you will die.
Foods are held up in the upper portion of the stomach for about one hour before mixing with the stomach acids; giving all the digestive enzymes time to work as well as the food enzymes to begin digestion. But when the foods are cooked, the enzymes needed to break down the food in your body are destroyed.  Cooking the foods above 118 degrees destroys all of its enzymescompletely annihilates them. So the foods being held up in the stomach are without its food enzymes, the digestive enzymes cannot work in the digestion process. Therefore, the body won’t let the food just sit in the stomach so the body is forced to call on its mechanism to produce the metabolic enzymes to produce the digestive enzymes necessary to digest the foods. But, now remember, you then are using your reserve of your beloved metabolic enzymes that determines your health and days of your life. So the more cooked foods that you eat, the more depleted of your metabolic enzymes you become. This compromises your lymphatic system which becomes overburdened with accumulated waste thus challenging your immune system.
I am not advocating a raw food diet, and I won’t even try and convince you to do it. I eat my fresh fruit only in the morning  (which allows my body’s cleansing process to continue) and my salads that I get creative with for lunch, but I love my cooked foods which I look forward to at my evening meal.  I take ‘Live Plant Enzymes’ before eating any meal which will have been cooked. Processed foods are considered to be in the cooked category.
In 1999 when my husband developed (CLL) Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, I began a huge research project to get only the safest, purest, high-quality supplements for us. The supplements are to be made without using heat, solvents, or fluid granulation at any stage of their manufacturing process, in order for them to be effective for the body’s needs. They also had to be Non-GMO, Kosher and Vegan because this is an announcement of safety. So for the Live-Plant Enzymes that we were to take before any and every cooked foods we chose Enzymedica Digest Enzymes (complete enzyme formula) because they have high quality manufacturing and processing practices. These are the only ones we will take. We have taken this product since 2005 with trust in the referrals of this product from others as well as the company’s integrity. I know we sound like the sales-man, but we would rather take supplements instead of drugs, and not compromise our precious metabolic-enzyme capacity. These Digest Enzymes can be purchased at most health food stores nationwide.

Marie


Addictions That Are Attached To Us

All readers,

We all know of the alcoholic and drug addict and their dangerous habit. You say they have a problem and you are right, they do, they cannot quit their insidious habit…even though it is killing them. The human body cannot tolerate the chemicals that we put into it, it will become addicted to these poisons. Just as the alcoholic, drug addict feed their drugs in,  the drug then begins to take over all of the body’s chemistry. They can’t just stop just by sheer desire; the brain, the hormones, the cells have all been compromised to the point that the withdrawals are overwhelming. There is no stopping now, the drugs have control over the body. It’s like a sci-fi movie where the monster comes in and can’t be stopped, its tentacles are wrapped around everything  It is terrifying. The reality of the situation is that what the chemicals that are in our diet and environment is doing the same thing to us…to our bodies, we just don’t know that the enemy is in control.

Education is the clear factor, but when it is brought to the forefront, most often it is balked at because of the food cravings/addictions involved and of the profits of the food manufacturing companies. (you read that right…cravings and addictions are in the same category). We tend to feed our palates with these chemical based foods and not our bodies which will remain malnourished and sick. This also feeds and continues the addictive cycle. They are comforting to our body but the enemy still lurks inside of us…the chemicals.

These processed foods with their chemical content are creating the diseases that are overpowering us, to the point that the health care system is becoming overrun and cannot handle the overload.  We need to be aware and recognize what is going on with the dangers of these chemicals, ie. additives, refined sugars, flours, salt to our body. I heard a story that several women were asked if they would rather have raw, passionate sex or eat chocolate. They answered,”what kind of chocolate and how much?”

The chemicals tend to overload our bodies to the point of saturation and then it reaches the breaking point. Our bodies will start screaming out in pain thus starting into the disease process. The body needs a release of these chemicals, but our addictions to them keep us from that freedom. So we get caught up into the same squirrel cage as the alcoholic and drug addict, we NEED these foods, we won’t give them up, we can’t live without them, nor do we want to try. We have so many excuses why we can’t or won’t change our eating and living habits. So we cannot judge the alcoholic because we are the same…addicted to our sugars, flours, oils, salts, refined and processed chemical based foods. The list goes on, take a second look before you dip your hand into the bowl of ‘whatever’ or the drink that you pour down your throat..it will come back and bite your body with disease. We are powerless! We need to clean up our body of these chemical poisons. Let us work on our new mindset so we can free ourselves from the tentacles of these addictive poisons. Read more:  From Birth Until Sunset…Poisoned To Death and check out http://frombirthuntilsunset.com/

Rescued From Depression

Category : Diseases , News , Sleep

Pharmaceutical Triggers of Depression: Chemotherapy, Hypnotics, Statins and Simvastatin, Oral Contraceptives, Beta-blockers, Calcium Channel Blockers, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines.
Non-Pharmaceutical Triggers of Depression: Nicotine, EMF (computers, cell phone, WiFi, etc.), Circadian Rhythm Dysfunction, Endocrine Imbalances, Degenerative Neurological Conditions, (MS Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Stroke), Immune System Diseases (ie. Lupus), Infections, and mold exposure, are some examples.
Processed foods activate depression, as the food ingredients and additives can cause or aggravate depressive episodes. Sugar is at the top of the list of inducing depression, and it seems to be in most processed foods, the only way to avoid it is to eliminate the foods from the standard American diet. (read: Hidden Sugar Names and Sugar and its Downsides). Also avoid Gluten, GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms), artificial sweeteners, which tend to be associated with neurotoxic reactions, mood disorders, schizophrenia, BiPolar, and is linked to depression, headaches, seizures, anxiety, and neuropathy. There are all types of diets but the healthiest ones are the whole-foods plant based organic and non-GMO. Mediterranean diet is one example. (read my book, From Birth Until Sunset…Poisoned To Death, for details) Simply, what God made you can eat, what man makes don’t eat, because man’s foods are too full of chemical toxins. Other important suggested helps are: Omega 3 fats, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B12, B6, B3 (which is Niacin, but get the no-flush Niacin) Vitamin C, Digestive Enzymes, Magnesium, Glutathione 500mg daily, and MCT Oil. Start with 1 tsp of MCT Oil at lunch and if your body feels ok with it, increase it to 1 Tbs. within the next week, gradually work up to at least 3 per day. A lot of these you can get many of these nutrients through your plant-based diet food supply. Food grade essential oils have been known to reduce depression in some people, 1 drop of under the tongue every 4-5 hours showed good results. Get on an exercise routine, that is the most important action you can take for yourself. Get at least 8 hours sleep a night, hydrate well, reduce stress through daily meditation. Getting the gut and brain working together is going heal the whole body.

Caring,
Marie


Depression Update

Category : Diseases , News

My fellow readers,

Stress creates a fire in the brain…inflammation. The hippocampus is the part of the brain that deals with emotions, learning and memory information. When we have extreme or uncontrollable stress, particularly early in life; the result is an excess release of the neurotransmitter glutamate which can damage and kill many cells within the hippocampus. This often leads to unknown depression. Depression also appears to inhibit the forming of new brain cells.The endocrine system can also have a part in stress related brain damage. Chronic activation of the pituitary and other hormones to release the stress hormones can lead to depression. Depression can tend to lead to brain inflammation, and neuroinflammation has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. Gluten and sugars seem to be the most prominent triggers. There are shown to be links relating the gut, the brain and inflammation. There are neurons in the brain as well as the gut. This is the enteric nervous system whose neurons produce many of the same transmitters as the brain, including serotonin, dopamine, and (GABA) gamma-aminobutyric acid. Your gut has the lead on serotonin production, more than the brain. The vagus nerve communicates these two brains, these signals have significant influence over your thoughts, mood and behavior.
A lifetime of poor dietary choices, toxic chemical exposures, antibiotics, lack of exercise, and other factors may further compromise your gut/brain health. There are huge links between processed foods and depression. Food additives, refined flours and sugars, processed fructose, gluten, GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organism), Glyphosate (see Why Are There So Many Wheat Allergies), artificial sweeteners, are just a few. Aspartame has already been linked to depression as well as panic attacks.
People who live with a lot of pain issues also tend to be more depressed. This ends up with the squirrel cage issue. Their bodies have an overabundance of toxins, thus they will start taking pain medications, of which many will create more depressive episodes, then the doctor may give them antidepressants, which creates more chemicals and with the lifestyle that is creating the pain to begin with, brings more pain and the cycle continues.
Stress halts digestion and your body will not assimilate the foods that you have just eaten. When one is stressed, this creates a tension within the body, including the digestive system, and your blood goes into your extremities ready for the fight or flee, the digestion gets ignored so it shuts down.
According to Dr. Ryan Wohlfert exercise is really important because it has to do with serotonin. Tryptophan forms serotonin. Serotonin is your feel good hormone. When you exercise, and especially if you’re lifting weights (I don’t mean anything really heavy), because you are then activating the muscles a little bit more, you use branched chain amino acids and these are used to build muscle. They also compete with tryptophan to get into the brain. So when you exercise, these amino acids are used to build muscle and not compete with the tryptophan. So the tryptophan can be used to make the serotonin for the brain. I chose to do the exercise route rather than do the drug therapy, it really does work. The drugs had too many dangers, especially trying to get off of them. I keep the exercise going in my daily routine for the past 30+ years because I am terrified if I quit I will end up back into that blackhole again. There are many different ways of exercise, walking, jogging, aerobics, biking, stretching, yoga etc. and switch them out occasionally for variety to the body. Just keep moving! ‘Let exercise and food be your medicine!’
