    Lots of interesting and timely stuff this week!

    First let's start with poison ivy. I'm one of those oddballs who has NEVER had poison ivy. I know I've been in it, cut it, broke it, rolled in it, crawled through it, etc., and never have had it. Mrs. Alton gets near and poof! Got the itch. My oldest son is pretty much the same way. My youngest is more like me. This is not to infer heredity or some sort of genetic cause, though I'm sure they're involved to some degree. But it pretty much comes down to just how well you clean the the oil, called ushiol (oo-she-all), from your skin. Turns out Dawn dish detergent and a vigorous wiping of the affected area with a washcloth will generally stop the oil from causing a rash. Here's the link and take the time to watch the video:

    Best Home Remedies for Poison Ivy



    Next is MORE "better living through chemistry" approved for you without a word in any media by your friends at the EPA (NO connection to FDA...) here:
    The GMO Agenda Takes a Menacing Leap Forward with EPA’s Silent

    Last, but by no means least is from a Russian doctor, a Doctor Natasha with a hyphenated last name. She still has a heavy accent so you will probably need to listen closely to the video. Anyway, some new-to-some info as an overview of the relationship between your gut flora (all the different types of bacteria, both good and bad, living in your bowels) and various physical ailments and low levels of various compounds in your body made ONLY or originating only from the gut flora. This will be of particular interest to those dealing with arthritis (inflammation), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other stuff mentioned in the video.

    I get a rash just being in the proximity of poison oak, which is all over my place. Had to do the steroid pack thing three times I believe. Do NOT, EVER, burn poison oak, Ivy, or Sumac. You can breathe in the oils, vapors, and you're going to have real problems.

    Liver Health: Detox the Liver with These 3 Foods: Thomas DeLauer

    Liver Overview

    Your liver produces bile that helps with the breakdown of fat. During weight gain your liver is being attacked by inflammatory signals coming from your white adipose tissue and your digestive tract

    At the same time, your white adipose tissue is unable to store fat fast enough, turning to the primary backup location for fat storage – your liver.

    When your liver gets clogged with excess fat, metabolism becomes strained and you are at risk for developing far more serious health problems.

    How does your liver clog?

    Excess leptin production from white adipose tissue causes a lowering of adiponectin. Low adiponectin causes insulin resistance in your liver, which raises your blood sugar and converts sugar to fat in your liver.(1)

    What causes a clogged liver?

    Toxins lodge in the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and especially fat tissue. The toxic build up prevents the normal uptake and utilization of nutrients, carbohydrates and proteins.

    When our livers are so busy working to filter out all these toxins the liver has very little energy left to filter blood, drugs, and hormones let alone do the job as a digestive organ - thus many find losing weight more difficult. (2)

    3 foods to help

    Garlic

    A member of the Allium family, garlic is rich in a variety of powerful sulfur-containing compounds

    Contains:

    Selenium – a mineral that increases the action of antioxidants – which assists the liver in detoxification.

    Arginine – an amino acid important for relaxing the blood vessels, which eases blood pressure in the liver.

    Vitamin B6 – helps lower homocysteine levels in the body, thus acting as an anti-inflammatory substance, which inhibits inflammation in the liver.

    Reduce Fat Accumulation in the Liver – A study published in a May 2013 edition of Nutrition Reviews, researchers performed a comprehensive meta-analysis looking at the effect of garlic on total cholesterol, LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

    Findings suggest garlic to be effective in reducing total serum cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. (3)

    Turmeric

    Turmeric removes cholesterol from liver. Curcumin, one of the active ingredients in turmeric is believed to communicate with liver cells to produce more LDL receptors. Due to increase in receptors, more cholesterol is cleared from our body

    One study administered fermented powdered turmeric to subjects, 20 years old and above, who were diagnosed with mild to moderate elevated alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels, a maker for liver damage and/or dysfunction.

    60 subjects were randomized to receive 3.0 g per fermented turmeric powder (FTP) or placebo 3.0 g per day for 12 weeks. The treatment group received two capsules of FTP three times a day after meals, for 12 weeks.

    Results: Not only did FTP significantly reduce ALT levels in subjects but also reduced serum aspartate transaminase (AST) and gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT), two additional enzymes which when elevated are commonly associated with liver damage. (4)

    Beets

    Pectin, a fiber found in beets, can also help clean the toxins that have been removed from the liver, allowing them to be flushed out of the system instead of reabsorbed by the body.

    Beet juice can be highly beneficial, as it allows the betaine to stay intact. Betaine is the substance that encourages the liver cells to get rid of toxins.

    Additionally, betaine acts to defend the liver and bile ducts, which are important if the liver is to function properly.

    Studies have also found that regular consumption of beets, which contain betaine and polyphenols, enhance the liver’s ability to product glutathione and superoxide dismutase, both key factors in daily detoxification (5)

    This simply cannot be overstated - GET YOUR VITAMIN D!

    Nope! Not hair-brained new age bio-babble. Not the words or thoughts of overwrought health fanatics. This IS for YOUR health and well-being.

    The FACTS keep piling up and are continually proven again and again...Your body NEEDS vitamin D. The US Recommended Daily Allowance is woefully low and does not even begin to approach what the body REQUIRES as a daily healthy level. Here's the link:Vitamin D3 Versus D2 Here's the latest facts, info and sources:

    [​IMG]
    It's something I've been encouraging for several years now — making sure you're getting adequate levels of vitamin D, not only because it's a crucial nutrient, but because so many people are deficient and don't realize it. But a new study has emerged dispelling the idea many scientists and health care providers have had for many years, the upshot being that there is a vast difference between vitamin D2, which is plant-based (notably from mushrooms), and vitamin D3, which is derived from animal products.

    The two do not, as some have believed, have a similar nutritional value. Health authorities are calling for official recommendations for vitamin D intake to be changed in accordance with the "new" information, which is not actually new, as we've related this important distinction for some time. The "groundbreaking" study from the University of Surrey was conducted to determine, between vitamins D2 and D3, which was more effective in raising levels in the body.

    The trial was funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) — "the largest U.K. public funder of nonmedical bioscience" — and the Diet and Health Research Industry Club (DRINC). Susan Lanham-New, principal investigator of the trial, called the results a "very exciting discovery which will revolutionize how the health and retail sector views vitamin D," EurekAlert! reported.1

    She added, "Vitamin D deficiency is a serious matter, but this will help people make a more informed choice about what they can eat or drink to raise their levels through their diet." Serious is right: one study shows that more than 40 percent of the American population is deficient in vitamin D,2 and some experts say the problem is serious enough to call it a pandemic.3

    Vitamin D2 and D3: Not Interchangeable

    Vitamin D is produced by your body after exposure to the sun, and because winter is the period during which sunshine is least available, vitamin D levels are typically at their lowest during this time.

    The 335 South Asian and white European women who participated in the study over two winters were divided into five groups and given either juice containing vitamin D2 or D3, a biscuit with the same or a placebo. At the conclusion of the study, researchers found vitamin D3 to be twice as effective in raising levels in the body in comparison to D2. EurekAlert reported: "Vitamin D levels in women who received vitamin D3 via juice or a biscuit increased by 75 percent and 74 percent respectively compared to those who were given D2 through the same methods. Those given D2 saw an increase of 33 percent and 34 percent over the course of the 12-week intervention. The research also found that nutrient levels of both vitamin D2 and D3 rose as a result of both food and acidic beverages such as juice, which were found to be equally as effective. Those who received the placebo experienced a 25 percent reduction in the vitamin over the same period."4 What's interesting, as mentioned, is that the information from this latest study is not new news. A similar study back in 2011 is one of several instances where vitamin D3 has been shown to have a much greater significance for your health compared to D2. One study 5 shows D3 to:

    - Convert to its active form 500 percent faster

    - Be 87 percent better at raising and maintaining vitamin D levels

    - Produce two to three times greater storage of the vitamin than D2

    Recommendations for Vitamin D Outdated and Unsafe

    Here's where it gets problematic: Several governments around the world, including the U.S. National Institutes of Health, assert there's no difference between vitamins D2 and D3 and that interchanging the two makes no difference whatsoever in your body's levels. However, the latest information from Public Health England reveals that more than 1 in 5 people in the U.K. have low levels of vitamin D, so the intake they now recommend is 10 micrograms per day, all year long, for everyone beginning at age 4.

    EurekAlert! notes that daily intake of vitamin D3 — but not vitamin D2 — will allow the population to avoid such health problems as rickets, osteoporosis and a higher risk of developing heart disease, all associated with individuals with insufficient levels of vitamin D in their bodies.

    What the scientists found influences public health but also retail markets in that many have added vitamin D2 to their products because they were led to believe it was just as viable in the body to increase people's "D" levels as taking D3. Lead study author and dietitian Laura Tripkovic explained: "The importance of vitamin D in our bodies is not to be underestimated, but living in the U.K. it is very difficult to get sufficient levels of it from its natural source, the sun, so we know it has to be supplemented through our diet. However, our findings show that vitamin D3 is twice as effective as D2 in raising vitamin D levels in the body, which turns current thinking about the two types of vitamin D on its head."6 Tripkovic explained that people who eat vitamin D3-rich foods or take supplements are two times more likely to raise their vitamin D profile than when consuming the equivalent in vitamin D2 foods such as mushrooms, D2-fortified bread or taking D2 supplements.

    Downsides of Low Vitamin D Versus Benefits of Optimal Levels

    Vitamin D is involved in the biology of all cells in your body, including your immune cells. A large number of studies have shown raising your vitamin D level can significantly reduce your risk of cancer and many other chronic diseases.So what happens when someone isn't getting the amount of vitamin D that they should? Daily Mail7 notes that lack of vitamin D:

    - Can cause your bones to become thin, brittle or misshapen

    - Is linked to an increased risk of multiple sclerosis

    - Is linked to a growing prevalence for children to develop rickets, shown in many cases to cause malformed and/or broken bones

    - Appears to play a role in insulin resistance, high blood pressure and immune function, related to heart disease and cancer

    People who are obese, older than age 65 and/or housebound may have lower levels of vitamin D due to their diets, little sun exposure and other factors, and among dark-skinned individuals in the U.S, only 3 percent among thousands have enough vitamin D, which is a 9 percent drop from 20 years ago.8 Beyond cancer prevention, a Swiss study9 from 2013 lists several of the more dramatic benefits of getting the right amount of vitamin D:

    - The development, function and maintenance of healthy bones and regulation of calcium homeostasis throughout life

    - The basis for the prevention and management of osteoporosis, a disease producing brittle bones that are prone to fractures

    - The regulation of neuromuscular function, reducing the risk of falls, a major cause of bone fractures

    - Possibly a central component of musculoskeletal health through vitamin D's beneficial effects on muscle function and bone stability

    - May show favorable effects in many organs and play a significant role in the maintenance of general health

    Vitamin D and Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Two Crucial Nutrients for Health

    According to Pharmacy Times, studies indicate that around 50 percent of adults worldwide have a vitamin D deficiency. Interestingly, in reviewing "potential mechanisms by which vitamin D might influence development of cardiovascular disease (CVD)" — and there's evidence that there is a link — there's also a possibility that CVD may cause low vitamin D levels rather than the other way around.10

    In 2018, the VITamin D and OmegA-3 TriAL (VITAL) will conclude the first part of its review to provide evidence to indicate whether 2,000 IUs per day of vitamin D supplementation, with or without omega-3 fatty acids, has any specific CVD effects. Specifically: "The large study has enrolled about 25,000 healthy, middle-aged American adults. It has also been structured to gauge long-term effects. VITAL is expected to augment the wealth of information that we possess concerning vitamin D supplementation for bone health."11

    You may already be aware that vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids are two of the most important nutrients your body needs, but most people have no idea if they're deficient in either of them. A test kit is available, however, to quickly and safely analyze your blood levels while at the same time helping to augment consumer-sponsored scientific research.

    The testing is performed by an independent research organization comparing these nutrients, and reveals your own vitamin D and omega-3 index (a measure of the omega-3s in your red blood cells) to let you know whether corrective action is needed. For more information about the nonprofit GrassRoots Health initiative and to learn how to get your own test kit, click here.

    The Significance of Getting Adequate Sunlight

    Another reason vitamin D levels are so important is that hepatic mitochondria and their associated microsomal enzymes metabolize vitamin D, whatever the source, Pharmacy Times noted, adding: "When patients consume too much vitamin D2 or vitamin D3, this process is completely unregulated and patients' vitamin D levels will rise proportionally to their intake. On the other hand, cutaneous synthesis from sun exposure allows patients levels to reach a preset point, and after that, additional sun exposure will not increase vitamin D levels."12 This means the best way to make sure you're getting enough vitamin D is to get regular sensible exposure to direct sunlight on your body each day. Depending on your locale, in the winter when the sun hides behind clouds and temperatures are often so chilly you're forced to wear long sleeves and galoshes, this may be difficult if not impossible, however.

    Alternatively, adding vitamin D3 supplements to your regimen can help you achieve optimal vitamin D levels. The foods you eat can also make a difference in helping to make or break your health (if not your bones). The best foods for increasing your vitamin D intakevia your diet are animal-based and quite limited:

    - Raw milk

    - Eggs, particularly the yolk from organic, free-range eggs

    - Wild-caught Alaskan salmon and other healthy fish such as mackerel and sardines, preferably from cold waters, and not farmed

    Get Your Vitamin D Levels Tested

    If you decide your vitamin D3 should be taken in supplement form, it's your serum level, or how much D3 your blood contains, that determines how much you should take until your levels are optimized to between 50 and 70 nanograms per milliliter, or ng/ml.

    Studies done by Grassroots Health13 recommend about 8,000 IUs (the International Unit by which fat-soluble vitamins are measured) daily of vitamin D3 to raise your serum levels above 40 ng/ml. Children may need about 35 IUs per pound of body weight; however, getting your blood tested is the only way to know for sure whether your vitamin D levels are within the optimal range and, consequently, how much oral vitamin D3 you may need. Also be sure the vitamin D you take is correctly balanced with vitamin K-2.

    An Atlanta-based Emory University School of Medicine study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology outlined vitamin D's association with cardiovascular disease prevention.

    The upshot is that levels below 20 ng/ml are simply not enough to maintain bone health, let alone provide the other disease-prevention benefits that vitamin D has to offer. As mentioned, optimal levels of vitamin D are between 50 and 70 ng/ml. Medical News Today pinpointed why the latest study and subsequent calls for government entities to increase recommendations are so important: "Vitamin D deficiency appears to be widespread, and, as more research is conducted, it becomes increasingly clearer that this nutritional deficit is having a significant impact on the health of the country overall. Studies such as this may play a role in improving awareness, and, eventually, reversing the trend."14 Sources and references here.

    Drink This After Fasting: Turmeric Golden Milk Shake: Thomas DeLauer

    Golden Milk Protein Power Shake

    Ingredients:
    - Cannellini Beans
    - Nutritional Yeast
    - Turmeric
    - Sunflower vs. Cashew Butter
    - Almond Milk
    - Ice
    - Stevia
    - Pea Protein

    Cannellini Beans - 1/3 cup canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

    Cognitive Ability

    Cannellini beans are rich in thiamine (vitamin B1), which assists brain cell function along with cognition

    Thiamine plays a key role in the production of acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is required for memory and its deficiency can lead to cognitive decline

    Weight Loss

    Blocks the enzyme known as alpha-amylase, which is naturally produced by the pancreas.

    Amylase breaks down complex starch molecules in the body and reduces them to simple sugars to improve absorption in the small intestine.

    By blocking this enzyme, the metabolism of starches is slowed and the absorption of sugars are also reduced

    Studies have shown that due to the content of a hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK), cannellini beans offer a sensation of satiety (1,2,3)

    Nutritional Yeast - 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

    Nutritional yeast provides a non-animal source of protein that contains all nine essential amino acids

    Also widely regarded as a good source of B vitamins, including B12 and has a nutty, cheese-like flavor

    In 2013, research published in the British Journal of Nutrition found it may boost post-exercise immunity

    Athletes who ate 3 quarters of a teaspoon of a type of fiber found in nutritional yeast per day ended up having higher amounts of circulating monocytes two hours after intense exercise - higher, in fact, than their pre-workout numbers (4) - This signifies an increase in imune system activity

    Turmeric - 1 tbsp turmeric

    Alzheimer’s disease

    Studies have shown that extracts of turmeric contain natural agents that block the formation of beta-amyloid; substance responsible for the plaques that obstruct cerebral function in Alzheimer’s disease.

    Immune System

    Turmeric contains a substance known as lipopolysaccharide, which helps stimulate the body’s immune system. Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents also help strengthen the immune system

    Gastrointestinal Issues

    The anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin lowers the chances of developing ulcers, is useful for constipation, cramping, and irritable bowel syndrome (5,6)

    Sunflower seed butter over Cashew - 2 tbsp




    Vitamin E

    Helps naturally balance cholesterol, keeping good and bad levels in check

    It also reduces free radical damage to slow aging in our bodies and reduce cell damage - one tablespoon provides 24% of our body’s daily needs

    Magnesium

    Magnesium is vital in keeping energy high, relieving muscle spasms; helping things go smoothly in the bathroom and helping us get deep, quality sleep at night

    Almond Milk - 3/4 cup

    One study in healthy adults showed that eating 66 grams almond oil every day for six weeks reduced triglycerides by 14%, as well as increased their HDL cholesterol by 6% - reduced risk of heart disease (9)

    Stevia - 2 tsp

    Doesn’t contribute calories or carbs to the diet and do not affect blood glucose or insulin response

    Certain glycosides in stevia extract have been found to dilate blood vessels, increase sodium excretion, and urine output - could potentially help lower blood pressure

    The brain changes in response to changes in your body. Both positive and negative elements can impact the nervous system. Negative elements include injury, disease and stressful situations. Positive elements include senses, thoughts, emotions, beliefs, memories and movement. Becoming aware of the process of neuroplasticity and becoming aware of how thoughts, emotions and beliefs can impact pain, allows one an opportunity to intervene and change one’s relationship with pain.

    Liver and Weight Loss: How Dehydration Slows Fat Burning: Thomas DeLauer

    Dehydration and Fat

    Organ function

    If your kidneys become dehydrated, their main job of filtering the blood becomes inhibited, and so passes a lot of the job onto the liver.
    One of the liver’s functions is to metabolize stored fat in the body, and therefore only has half the fat burning capacity if your kidneys are malfunctioning from dehydration

    Liver is babysitting two kids instead of just one.

    Endocrine system

    Growth hormone (hgH) is a potent fat burning hormone. It binds itself to the receptor sites of fat cells and breaks down triglycerides, shrinking the fat cell.
    However, hgH production is hugely reduced when the body is dehydrated, limiting fat metabolism.

    Cognitive function

    The brain is made of roughly 80% water, and is therefore very sensitive to changes in water level. Just 2% dehydration can reduce cognitive function by up to 30%.
    This can lead to a feeling of tiredness and fatigue, which negatively promotes a lack of motivation to exercise and eat correctly – indirectly hinders fat burning (1)

    Study

    One study looked at dehydration and obesity and used urine samples provided for the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2009-2012 from 9,500 participants ages 18 to 64

    The study found that nearly one-third of participants were inadequately hydrated and that the odds of being obese were 1.59 times higher for people who were not well-hydrated – also found that a lack of proper hydration was associated with higher body mass index. (2,3)

    Improve Your Hydration

    Drink a full glass of water on waking. Six to eight hours of sleeping leaves us dehydrated first thing in the morning.

    The worst thing you can do at this time of the day is immediately drink tea or coffee – they act as diuretics and will dehydrate you even further.

    It is important to include electrolytes (salt) in your water to mitigate the risk of hypernatremia (condition where the sodium concentration of your blood becomes too low due to drinking too much plain water when dehydrated)

    By doing this you’ll also rehydrate more effectively as the salt helps the water pass from your gut into the blood and keeps it there (if you only drink plain water when you’re severely dehydrated you’ll only absorb 50% of the amount you drink.) (1,4)

    Highly polarized water is attracted to positively charged sodium in the blood

    A GIANT Leap Forward?

    Sorry gravity. The evidence has long been in, your body, your world, your universe IS electrical. Prior to Einstein's theories James Clerk Maxwell and many other renowned scientists of the period, before and since have demonstrated that the universe, earth and you and me all run on electricity. Now that we've passed through the Einstein segue, we're getting back on track to making genuine advances in science and health. Personally I find it extremely exciting that technologies are coming to market at last that purport to make use of this knowledge. Conversely I'm scared as hell of WHO is doing this...NOT your friends or mine, BIG Pharma! Their track record is less than stellar. Their products are less than effective. They have demonstrated repeatedly that they want absolutely NOTHING to do with cures, healing or the promotion of health as such things stand athwart of their business models. Having experienced and been victimized by their products and business model I cannot help but seeing a Trojan Horse here. The electrical doohickeys will have to be programmed and controlled/adjusted. This means CHIPS. This means EXTERNAL communication with such chips to effect control/adjust of the devices. Wha other information will be in these chips? These and many more questions are, at this point without answer to the public. Hopefully, my tinfoil hat is on too tight and I will be proven the fearful fool, of course, I don't really believe it will go that way. Anyway, here's the Wall Street article:

    https://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2016/03/10/electroceuticals-glaxosmithkline-gsk/



    One day, in the not too distant future, you might not recognize the pharmaceutical industry...
    [​IMG]

    UK-based pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline has partnered with South San Francisco-based Verily to create Galvani Bioelectronics – a joint venture to develop implantable bioelectric medicines, a branch of medicine that works to fight diseases by targeting electrical signals in the body.
    Right now, pharmaceutical firms develop drugs that interact biochemically with our bodies in order to treat various diseases and conditions. But that's changing...

    A number of pharmaceutical companies will eventually transform into bioelectronics companies. Their treatments will consist of tiny implantable devices that "speak" the body's electric language.

    Think of it as a type of technology similar to a heart pacemaker. But much, much more advanced.

    The Brave New World of Electroceuticals

    Welcome to the brave new world of neuromodulation and electroceuticals. It's a world where neural signal modulation will be the treatment path followed by tomorrow's doctors, not drugs.

    Most electroceuticals will be about the size of a grain of rice. The devices will be attached to peripheral nerves and will modulate neural signals.

    This will be a quantum leap from current disease treatment methods using drugs, which are actually very blunt instruments. And we all know about the numerous side-effects drugs can cause...

    Whereas regulating the electrical firings of neural circuits can be far more precise and without the nasty side-effects. So says Kristoffer Famm, Vice President of Bioelectronics at GlaxoSmithKline Plc (GSK). As he told the Financial Times, "The nervous system is a fundamental control system in biology."

    And the nervous system is where scientists are exploring new frontiers. Prime early opportunities bioelectronics research is focusing on metabolic, cardiovascular, and inflammatory disorders.

    Bioelectronics Research

    One prime area of research for bioelectronics is the brain and epilepsy. Epilepsy is directly caused by an electrical malfunction of the brain. This common neurological disease affects more than 50 million people worldwide. And conventional drugs aren't really that effective in combating it.

    However, most current bioelectronics research is focused on the electrical language of peripheral nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. It's these nerves that influence the function of every organ in the body.

    DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is involved in the field through its $79 million Electrical Prescriptions (ElectRx) initiative.

    A NEW Version of Bulletproof Coffee (without the caffeine)

    Ingredients: Turmeric, MCT Oil, Coconut Oil, Cinnamon, Almond Milk, and Stevia

    Keto Recipes: Bulletproof Golden Milk with Turmeric: Thomas DeLauer

    Turmeric

    Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant - Curcumin is also fat soluble

    Curcumin actually targets multiple steps in the inflammatory pathway, at the molecular level.

    Curcumin blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases (1)

    MCT Oil

    MCTs are easily digested and do not require the production and utilization of bile

    They provide immediate energy because they are able to cross the double mitochondrial membrane very rapidly and do not require the presence of carnitine

    This results in the production of excess acetyl-coA, which breaks down into ketones. The rapid formation of ketone bodies gives immediate energy to the brain and body (2)

    Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil contains about 50% lauric acid - When lauric acid is present in the body, it is converted into monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound that exhibits antiviral and antimicrobial properties

    Monolaurin has been found to incorporate itself into the cell membrane of gram-positive bacteria (that contain a thick mesh cell wall lattice made of sugars and amino acids) and disrupts the lipid membranes of cells, blocking replication and making it an easier for your immune system to take care of (3)

    Cinnamon

    Cinnamon is loaded with powerful antioxidants, such as polyphenols, that protect the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals

    Also improves insulin sensitivity - Your pancreas releases the hormone insulin into your blood, which tells your liver, muscles, and fat tissue to take the glucose from the blood and store it.

    Your liver and muscles store the glucose as glycogen, and your fat cells store it as triglycerides. The storage of glycogen expands the size of muscle cells, and the storage of triglycerides expands fat cells.

    Cells are sensitive to insulin, they respond to insulin properly by taking in the glucose that the insulin is trying to shuttle out of your blood stream.

    The more sensitive your cells are to insulin, the better they respond to its presence in your blood. As insulin sensitivity increases, your body needs to produce less insulin to absorb glucose - helps maintain a lean, healthy body (4)

    Study

    One study from the journal Diabetes Care, conducted with 60 people with type 2 diabetes, found that the daily ingestion of 1, 3, and 6 grams of cinnamon per day for 40 days decreased blood glucose levels by 18-29% (means that their cells were responding better to insulin)

    The group eating 6 grams per day experienced a significant reduction in only 20 days. (4)

    Almond Milk

    1 cup of almond milk contains 500 IU of vitamin A, 100 IU of vitamin D and 3 micrograms of vitamin B-12 - fulfills 100% of your B-12 requirements and 20% of your vitamin A and D requirements

    Vitamins A and D are important for a healthy immune system, and B-12 is essential for blood cell formation and DNA synthesis

    Top 5 Foods to Reduce Inflammation: Real Science: Thomas DeLauer

    Beets

    Beets contain betanin and vulgaxanthin, two phytonutrients that reduce inflammation by inhibiting COX enzymes that are known to trigger inflammation. If you’ve ever taken aspirin, aspirin is an anti-inflammatory because it inhibits this same COX enzyme.

    Beets are also a fairly unique source of a nutrient called betaine, which helps to protect the cells from environmental stress and is known to have significant anti-inflammatory effects.

    According to researchers, betaine consumption is linked to reduced inflammation and protection against other diseases.

    In general, beets fight to repair the cell damage caused by inflammation and contain high-levels of magnesium, and a magnesium deficiency is strongly linked with inflammatory conditions.

    Pineapple

    Pineapples are loaded with nutrients that offer a wide range of health benefits, but they also contain an enzyme known as bromelain.

    Bromelain has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect on the body and is the reason why pineapple has been touted as one of the best natural anti-inflammatory foods out there.

    Research has found that due to bromelain’s anti-inflammatory nature, it is effective in treating conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and joint pain. It is also able to break down fibrin, a protein that causes blood clots.

    - Garlic

    As mentioned previously, cytokine production promotes inflammation and garlic, favorably, contains four sulfuric compounds that exhibit anti-inflammatory action.

    A 2012 study found that these four compounds are able to inhibit the production of prostaglandins, cytokines and interleukin – all of which promote inflammation.

    Garlic also possesses amazing antioxidant properties in the form of allyl cysteine and allyldisulphide.

    These antioxidants inhibit lipid peroxidation (the oxidation or “turning bad” of fats) and free radicals, which prevents oxidative damage caused by free radicals in joints (7)

    Ginger

    Ginger contains a particularly potent anti-inflammatory compound called gingerols.

    Gingerols are the reason why so many sufferers of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reduced pain levels when they consume ginger regularly.

    One compared the effects of ginger extract to a placebo in 247 patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee.

    The ginger reduced pain and stiffness in knee joints by 40 percent over the placebo!

    Ginger also contains a compound, known as 6-Shogaol, that inhibits the release of swelling-causing chemicals known to cause damage to neurons. (8,9,10)

    Turmeric

    Traditionally used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat arthritis turmeric/curcumin blocks inflammatory cytokines and enzymes, including cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which reduces inflammation.

    A 2010 clinical trial found that a turmeric supplement with 75 percent curcumin provided long-term improvement in pain and function in 100 patients with knee Osteoarthritis!

    In a small 2012 pilot study, curcumin was shown to reduce joint pain and swelling in patients with active Rheumatoid Arthritis better than diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

    Bloated Stomach: What Causes Bloating?
    [​IMG]
    The Most Common Causes of Bloating
    Most people will experience bloating at some point, but some people retain gas significantly more often. Some of the factors that make bloating more likely include overeating, dysbiosis (imbalance of the intestinal gut flora), bowel obstruction, and digestive disorders like IBS, IBD, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease.

    Many people confuse bloating with water retention, but they are different. Menstruation, hormonal changes, and eating food that’s high in salt may cause you to retain water, but this is not bloating.

    Below are some of the most common causes of bloating.

    1. IBS
    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) causes discomfort and bloating. One study defined the change in normal bowel function as “life-altering.”[1] Many studies find that IBS is most likely to cause bloating when people eat complex carbohydrates, certain types of fat, and food that stimulates an allergic response.[2]

    2. Swallowed Air
    The frequent swallowing of air while chewing can cause bloating and other discomforts until it’s released (usually by belching).[3] Chew slowly to reduce the amount of air that you swallow.

    3. Inulin
    Inulin is a naturally occurring source of fiber that’s found in bananas, asparagus, Jerusalem artichoke, jicama, leeks, onions, and garlic. Some inulin is beneficial and even acts as a prebiotic, but too much can cause bloating and cramping in certain people. One study found that inulin caused gas and bloating in individuals who had no other history of gastrointestinal disorders.[4]

    4. Coffee
    While coffee offers many benefits, too much can be rough on your stomach.[5] Coffee can worsen IBS symptoms by over-stimulating the nerves of the digestive tract, leading to bloating, gas, and discomfort.

    5. Alcohol
    Researchers have found that alcohol worsens IBS symptoms and affects your gut microbiota.[6] The effects of alcohol vary based on your pattern of drinking.

    6. Medication
    Some types of medication can cause bloating, particularly formulas that contain sorbitol and lactulose.[7] Many sweet-tasting liquid medications taken by mouth have these ingredients. Antibiotics can kill both the harmful and healthy bacteria in your system. Disrupting your gut microbiota can affect normal digestion and result in bloating.

    7. Artificial Sweeteners
    For many people, artificial sweeteners negatively affect their digestive system. Synthetic sugar substitutes like sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, and erythritol can give you gas, diarrhea, and even provoke nausea.[8]

    8. Harmful Organism Overgrowth
    When a small number of good bacteria remain in the large intestine, you become susceptible to the overgrowth of detrimental bacteria. In lesser cases, this internal stress can lead to gas and bloat, in more severe cases, it can lead to constipation or diarrhea.

    Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is caused by bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine. In general, gut bacteria should only remain in the very last stretch of the small intestine, but when they proliferate and start creeping back toward the stomach, they can cause weight loss, diarrhea, bloating, and inhibit the movement of the contents of your intestines.[9]

    9. Food Intolerances
    Dairy and lactose intolerance is a well-known food sensitivity commonly associated with bloating and gas. It results when your intestines fail to produce lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose.[10]

    10. Certain Foods and Drinks
    Carbonated water and soda are obvious contributors to bloating. If you’re already bloated, skip the fizzy drinks and drink purified water instead. In the same vein, some foods are famous for their ability to cause gas and bloating. These include beans, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, apples, onions, pears, corn, cereal grains, and other fiber-rich foods. If you don’t have enough fiber-digesting probiotic organisms in your gut, these foods may cause gas and bloating.[11]

    11. Constipation
    Constipation may cause bloating because your gut microbiota is interacting with trapped stool and producing gas in your colon. If you have a history of bowel obstruction combined with bloating and constipation, consult your natural health care practitioner for personalized guidance.

    Diet to Prevent Bloating
    If you’re not sure what’s causing your discomfort, try an elimination diet. There are many different options that are available online, but this is the one we recommend:

    Eliminate These
    • Meat: Red meat, eggs, chicken, pork, fish, and shellfish
    • Dairy: Cheese, milk, yogurt, cream, butter, ice cream
    • Sugar: Sweetened cereals, donuts, cookies
    • Gluten and Simple Starches: Wheat and rye bread, pasta, bagels, crackers
    • Fruit: Apples, peaches, plums, pears, watermelon
    • Vegetables: Onions, garlic, snap peas, asparagus, artichokes
    Replace With These
    • Grains: Rice, quinoa, spelt, gluten-free pasta or couscous
    • Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, tempeh, sunflower seeds, pumpkin or squash seeds
    • Fruit: Citrus fruits, grapes, bananas, berries
    • Vegetables: Green beans, bok choy, tomatoes, salad greens, zucchini, squash, peppers
    Try to stick to this diet for six to eight weeks. You can slowly add the foods from the elimination list back into your diet, just make sure you add them one at a time to find the source of the bloating. Here are some recipes you can rely on while you’re on the elimination diet.
    How to Alleviate Bloat Right Now
    If you feel bloated and haven’t been able to relieve the pressure, try massaging your stomach. Begin at your right hip, apply pressure as you draw your palm up toward your right ribs, across to your left ribs, down to your left hip, and back to the starting point. Continue this circular motion until you feel better; it should only take a minute or two to feel relief.

    You can also try drinking ginger or peppermint tea. For ginger tea, simply cut a few slices of fresh ginger and add to hot water. To make peppermint tea, pour near-boiling water over fresh peppermint leaves.

    Your body should naturally produce many of the enzymes required to digest food, but if you have an unpredictable stomach, try adding supplemental enzymes like VeganZyme® to your diet. VeganZyme is formulated with a comprehensive spectrum of digestive and systemic enzymes for superior gut support and function.

    Keeping Bloat at Bay
    A better solution to fiber-associated bloat is to cultivate the right gut microbiota to help you get the most nutrition out of your diet. Limit foods that do little for your health like artificial sugars, alcohol, and processed foods that contain inulin. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water and avoid soda. Eat a diet that’s rich in fiber and other prebiotics to feed strong, healthy probiotic colonies.

    A probiotic supplement like Floratrex™ can give your gut a probiotic boost to promote diversity. A wide range of bacterial species in the colon provides you with the digestive and intestinal support you need keep your gut happy, healthy, and bloat-free.

    Does Cooking Vegetables Destroy Nutrients? How to Cook Veggies Properly

    Vegetables are packed full of health-promoting nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.

    The nutrient content can vary not only on the kind of vegetable, but also the way in which it was grown and the way that we cook it.

    Of these, we have the most control over how we eat it - raw, lightly cooked through a variety of methods, or heavily cooked.

    Cooking can alter the chemical composition of foods. This can lead to certain nutrients becoming more bioavailable and others breaking down or leaching from the vegetable into the cooking water.

    Certain vitamins are water soluble, so these vitamins can leach from veggies when cooked in water, such as boiling.

    On the other hand, some studies have found cooking to increase the antioxidant activity by freeing the antioxidant compounds.

    Yet other studies have found a decrease in vitamin C from cooking, which is an antioxidant.

    Here are a few examples of the conflicting evidence:

    Case Study - Summary - This study found that, for red peppers and antioxidant activity, dry-heat cooking methods such as roasting and stir-frying retained more antioxidants, and the shorter the cooking time the better.

    2012 study published in Preventative Nutrition and Food Science

    A study was done on red peppers to determine the antioxidant activity of red peppers following boiling, steaming, stir-frying and roasting for 5, 10 and 15 minutes.

    Multiple different healthful compounds were measured, including ascorbic acid content, total carotenoid content, polyphenol content, and radical scavenging activities.

    It was found that all types of cooking reduced these measures of antioxidant activity, with boiling reducing them the furthest and stir-frying the least. With every cooking method, the more time that passed the more antioxidants that were lost.

    However, other studies have found that the thermal processing of tomatoes leads to an increase of total antioxidant activity and bioaccessible lycopene. A similar finding exists for beta carotene in carrots.

    A 2008 study on cooking method (boiling, steaming, or frying) and phytochemical and antioxidant capacity of carrots, broccoli, and courgettes found that boiling and steaming were better than frying at maintaining phytochemical and antioxidant levels.

    One study on broccoli found that steaming was more beneficial to maintaining nutrients when compared to microwaving, boiling, or stir-frying.

    Conclusion? The best cooking method depends on what nutrient you are hoping to get the most from, and what vegetable you are cooking.

    When examined, extended cooking time tends to lead to loss of benefits - so it is likely best to keep cooking time to a shorter duration.

    Many compounds become more bioavailable with cooking, so while it is good to add some raw veggies in here and there, overall a short cooking time is preferred.

    Overall, steaming is better than boiling as this leads to less loss of water soluble nutrients from the food.

    Steam veggies for a short period of time, eat some raw, and make some soups - variety is the best way to get the most from veggies.

    Contrary to popular belief - Microwaving does not reduce nutrient value

    High Vitamin C, High Vitamin B, Polyphenols and Water soluble are unstable when cooking, so stir fry more than boil/steam, broccoli,

    Dry Cooking retains more nutrients for fat soluble vitamins like A, E, D - Spinach, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, peppers

    Contrary to popular belief, microwaving doesn’t kill nutrients in vegetables. In fact, it may outrank steaming when it comes to retaining antioxidants.
    A 2009 report in the Journal of Food Science found that compared with boiling, pressure cooking and baking, microwave cooking helped maintain the highest levels of antioxidants in beans, beets, artichoke, asparagus, garlic, onion and spinach. Microwave cooking increased antioxidant activity in eggplant, corn, peppers and Swiss chard. On the other hand, boiling and pressure cooking led to the greatest antioxidant losses.

    How Body Voltage Dictates Health and Disease



    Story at-a-glance

    Your body runs on bioelectricity. Cells are designed to run in an environment of -20 to -25 millivolts. To repair and heal, cells need an environment of -50 millivolts
    Inadequate voltage is a characteristic of all chronic disease. Either you do not have the necessary voltage to run the cells, or the higher voltage needed to make new cells
    To heal, you need the proper voltage. You also need all of the necessary raw materials (nutrients) required to make new cells and address any toxins that might damage cells as fast as you make them


    By Dr. Mercola

    Your body runs on bioelectricity, and having a deeper understanding of how it works can be quite helpful when it comes to optimizing your health. Natural health pioneer Dr. Jerry Tennant has written an excellent book on this topic called "Healing Is Voltage: The Handbook."
    The Electric Brain

    Trained as an ophthalmologist, Tennant transitioned into natural health as a result of being forced to solve his own health challenges. After doing laser eye surgery on a patient with leukemia, Tennant ended up developing encephalitis. He believes the virus, which is not killed by laser, traveled from the patient's cornea, through the mask, up through his nose into his brain. He was forced to quit work in November 1995, and spent the next seven years bedridden, without hope for recovery.

    "I went to the best doctors I could find in New York, Boston and so forth. They all said, 'Well, sorry. You have three viruses in your brain. We don't know what to do about it. Don't call us. We'll call you.' I had two or three hours a day in which I could understand the newspaper. Then like a light switch, it would go off and I couldn't understand it anymore. During those two or three hours that I could think, I realized I had to figure out how to get myself well, because no one else was going to do it.

    I had the idea that if I could figure out how to make one cell work, I could make them all work, because although they look different, they really all have the same component parts. They just have different software. I began to read cellular biology books … One of the things that resonated with me was that … cells must run at a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. I didn't really know what that meant, except it was something about acid-base balance.

    I began to try to understand pH. I began to realize that pH is the name given to voltage in a liquid. If you think about the voltage that runs electric lights or a computer, that's called conductive electricity. That means electrons are moving along copper wires. But in a liquid, you have a different situation. A liquid can either be an electron donor or an electron stealer.

    By convention, if the liquid … is an electron stealer, you put a plus sign in front of the voltage. If it's an electron donor, you put a minus sign in front of it. You take a sophisticated volt meter called a pH meter and put it in the liquid. It will actually read out in voltage; minus 400 millivolts of electron donor is the same thing as pH of 14. Plus 400 millivolts of electron stealer is the same as a pH of zero. Of course, if it's neutral, it's a pH of 7."

    Healing Requires Double the Voltage
    Download Interview Transcript

    A pH meter can give you a reading of either pH or millivolts. It's actually easier to understand what's going on if you use millivolts. A pH of 7.35 equates to -20 millivolts of electron donor. A pH of 7.45 is -25 millivolts of electron donor. Cells are designed to run in an environment of -20 to -25 millivolts.

    People get confused because if you measure across a cell membrane you get about minus 90 millivolts. But the environment is designed to be -20 to -25 millivolts.

    "That was a critical piece of my understanding to begin to understand how to get myself well," Tennant says (who, by the way, turned 77 this past June and still enjoys healthy mental faculties and goes to work every day). To repair and heal, on the other hand, cells need an environment of -50 millivolts. In other words, you need double the normal voltage to repair or replace damaged cells.

    "Dr. Hiroki Nakatani in Japan was the first person to use modern electronics to measure acupuncture meridians. He published his work in 1951. Dr. Reinhard Voll in Germany did similar work and published it in 1952. I was able to get Nakatani's rather rudimentary device (an ohmmeter) and found that my brain was running somewhere between 2 and 4 millivolts, instead of the 25 that it needed to run and the 50 it needed to repair.

    Now, it was obvious why it didn't work," he says. "Understanding that my brain didn't have enough voltage to work correctly, that was really what started me on the journey of trying to figure out how to get things to work again."

    Chronic Disease Is the Result of Failure to Make Functional Cells

    First, he came across work by a Russian doctor named Alexander Karasev, who had identified a waveform that can transfer electrons to cell membranes. He was able to acquire a SCENAR device developed by Karasev and began to treat himself with it. Years later, he developed his own Biomodulator device.1

    "As I began to recognize that the body had to have energy, the other big change in my paradigm was when I finally understood that the body is constantly wearing itself out and having to make new cells. You get new cones in the macula of your eye every 48 hours. The lining of the gut is replaced every three days. The skin that you and I are sitting in today is only 6 weeks old. Your liver's 8 weeks old. Your nervous system's 8 months old.

    One of the things I began to realize then is that chronic disease only occurs when you lose the ability to make new cells that work. [By extension], if you say that you must have a cell that works, that cell must contain functional mitochondria. But the mitochondria are not going to work if the cell membranes don't work.

    It's the total unit that you have to have working. It's sort of like having a brand-new car. If it doesn't have a transmission, even though you've got the rest of it there, it's not going to work. You have to have the whole thing … Cells actually have four battery packs. The mitochondria are only one of those battery packs. You want them all to be functional."

    In a nutshell, inadequate voltage is a characteristic of all chronic disease. Either you do not have the necessary voltage to run the cells, or the higher voltage needed to make new cells. So, to heal, you need the proper voltage. You also need all of the necessary raw materials (nutrients) required to make new cells and address any toxins that might damage cells as fast as you make them.
    Body Electric — The Human Battery System

    According to Tennant, there are four major battery systems in the human body that make cells work. The largest is your muscle battery. Your muscles are piezoelectric, which means that when you engage your muscles, electrons are emitted. In a way, your muscles act like rechargeable batteries, so while they emit electrons, they also store them.

    To recharge the "battery pack" in your muscles, all you need to do is move and exercise. In summary, the four battery systems found in the human body are as follows. All of these battery systems must be functional for cells to work correctly:

    1. Muscle battery pack — Your muscles are stacked one on top of the other in a specific order (much like batteries in a flashlight) to form a power pack. Each organ has its own battery pack, which is a stack of muscle batteries. According to Tennant, each stack of muscle batteries corresponds to an acupuncture meridian.

    The muscle batteries are surrounded by fascia, which acts as a semiconductor — an arranged metabolic molecule designed to move electrons at the speed of light, but only in one direction. Together, the muscle stack and the surrounding fascia serve as the wiring system for your body, carrying the voltage from the muscle battery inside, out through the fascia and to the appropriate organ.

    2. Cell membrane capacitor — Cell membranes are composed of fats called phospholipids, shaped like a circle with two "legs." The circle is an electron conductor and the legs are insulators. They're stacked together so that you have two conductors separated by an insulator, which is the definition of a capacitor.

    The difference between a capacitor and a regular battery is when a capacitor discharges, it discharges all of its charge whereas a battery discharges slowly. So, each cell membrane acts like a small battery (capacitor), which is continuously fed electrons from the muscle battery packs.

    3. ADP/ATP battery — Inside each cell is yet another rechargeable battery system called adenosine diphosphate/adenosine triphosphate (ADP/ATP). When this battery is charged up, it's called ATP. When the battery's discharged, it's called ADP. Because it's a rechargeable battery system, there's a type of battery charger inside of the cell as well. We call that Krebs cycle, or the citric acid cycle.

    The citric acid cycle prefers fatty acids. When sufficient oxygen is available, for every unit of fatty acid you put into the citric acid cycle, you get enough electrons to charge up 38 ATP batteries. If oxygen is unavailable, for every unit of fatty acids you put into the citric acid cycle you only get enough electrons to charge up two of those batteries.

    Hence, when oxygen drops, this ADP/ATP battery system becomes very inefficient. "It's like a car that goes from 38 miles a gallon to 2 miles a gallon," Tennant says.

    4. The DNA battery — Lastly, there's DNA. The DNA molecule measures 34 by 21 angstroms per double helix cycle.2 The ratio of these numbers is very close to phi and is known as the golden section or golden mean. "Anytime you have something that's a golden mean and expose it to scalar energy … scalar energy implodes into the center and becomes the power supply for DNA," Tennant says.
    Fifth Energy System — Structured Water

    A fifth system that holds and delivers energy is structured water — negatively charged water found in your cells and extracellular tissues. Typical tap water is H2O, but this fourth phase is actually H3O2. It's more viscous, more ordered and more alkaline than regular water, and the refractive index (optical property) of this water is about 10 percent higher than ordinary water. Its density is also about 10 percent higher and, as mentioned, it has a negative charge (negative electrical potential).

    This may provide the answer as to why human cells are negatively charged. Tennant does not go into structured water here, but it's a whole additional component that also plays an important role in health and disease. In summary, the way you recharge this structured water is through sunlight. Sun exposure structures the water in your body, which provides greater energy. To learn more about this, please review "Water Supports Health in Ways You May Never Have Suspected."
    What Cells Require for Proper Function

    As mentioned, chronic disease is characterized by low voltage. The obvious question then becomes, why won't the battery packs hold a charge? Here, a number of factors can come into play. Among the most important are:

    • Thyroid hormones — The thyroid hormone T3 controls the voltage of cell membranes while T2 controls the voltage of the mitochondria. Hence, you need adequate T3 and T2 for things to work. "What I find is that basic to all chronic diseases is that you have to make sure you get the thyroid piece right, because if you don't, then nothing else tends to work correctly," Tennant says.

    "One of the problems is doctors are trained to look at thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and sometimes T4. But TSH and T4 could be normal, but if you don't have the cofactors that it takes to convert T4 to T3, you're still hypothyroid at the cell level."

    • Dental infections — As mentioned, voltage runs from the muscle battery out through the fascia to the organs. On the way, each muscle battery pack or meridian runs through a specific tooth. There are acupuncture meridian charts showing which meridian corresponds to which tooth.

    According to Tennant, teeth act like circuit breakers, so if you have an infection in a tooth, it will lower the voltage, eventually turning the voltage off in that circuit. When that happens, the organs powered by that particular circuit will begin to malfunction.

    • Scars — According to Tennant, scars can significantly inhibit or drain voltage. To treat scars, Tennant uses essential oils in combination with his proprietary device called the Biomodulator/Biotransducer. "Just put the Biotransducer over [the scar] until you feel the magnetic fields go away. That opens up the scar and now the voltage goes through it," he says. "It takes about three minutes and works great."
    Emotions Create Distorted Magnetic Fields That Lower Voltage

    Another really important factor that lowers your body voltage are stuck, negative emotions. Your body actually stores emotions as magnetic fields. Tennant explains:

    "If you put a magnetic field in one of the body's circuits, it simply blocks the flow of electrons. So, what we found is that one of the most important things that start chronic disease is actually emotions. You can identify these emotional magnetic fields in a variety of different ways.

    Work by Eileen McKusick and others have shown we're all surrounded by this magnetic field. It goes out about 5 feet … [One of the things McKusick taught is you can take a tuning fork, strike it and you'll hear it hum.

    As you move it through the field, when it hits one of these areas of emotional distortion, its pitch goes deeper. You can actually hear it. If you can put a pendulum right where you find it, you'll see the pendulum spins counter-clockwise if there's an emotional distortion there. It spins clockwise if there isn't."

    To erase the aberrant magnetic fields caused by negative emotions, Tennant applies a stronger magnetic field using his Biomodulator, which not only can transfer electrons but also put out a variety of waveforms, including scalar energy.
    Treating Macular Degeneration

    Today, Tennant no longer practices general ophthalmology. The only eye problems he treats are macular degeneration and glaucoma, using voltage-based techniques. The macula is on the stomach meridian. "The reason people get macular degeneration is that they lose the minus 50 millivolts they need to make new cells every 48 hours," he says. "As those cells wear out, they can't get replacements."

    To address it, you need to determine why there's deficient voltage in the stomach meridian. You also need to make sure you're giving your body all the materials needed to replace those macular cells. Nerve cells are 50 percent cholesterol by weight, so it's nearly impossible to reverse macular degeneration if you're on a statin drug, as you will not have enough cholesterol in your system.

    Other important nutrients are animal-based omega-3 fats and fulvic acid, typically sold as "fulvic trace minerals," which provides vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

    "Fulvic acid is a primary control of cell membranes because it's one of the few substances that can be either plus or minus, as it needs to be," Tennant explains. "When we take that, it provides the things we need. Of course, there's research coming out now that shows not only does it correct mineral deficiencies, but it begins to help with the way our intestinal cells interlock, and so on.

    Also, fulvic acid is a great way to get rid of heavy metals because [it goes] inside the cell, grabs the metal, pulls it out, hands it off to the humic, which then takes it out of your body. In intravenous chelation, the chelating materials can only get to extracellular things, because they won't go inside the cells where almost all the metals reside."

    Astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant, can also be quite beneficial. Since the macula replaces itself every 48 hours, people with dry macular degeneration may start noticing results in as little as three or four days, provided you've addressed the nutritional component as well. In many cases, Tennant has been able to restore vision to within the normal reading range.

    Wet macular degeneration is more difficult, as the bleeding causes scarring and new cells cannot eliminate the scar. In these cases, the goal is to stabilize the disease and prevent further deterioration.
    Treating Glaucoma

    To treat glaucoma, you have to treat the liver/gallbladder circuit, as the optic nerve is on the liver/gallbladder meridian. "The optic nerve replaces itself every eight months if it has the 50 millivolts to do it," he says. "What you'll find in every glaucoma patient is that the polarity in the liver meridian has dropped down past zero, so it's an electron stealer instead of an electron donor."

    You also need to treat the sympathetic system, which controls lymphatics, because the outflow channel of your eye is part of the lymphatic system. So, "to fix glaucoma, you look at both the sympathetic and parasympathetic and figure out why that's not balanced, and then you fix the liver/gallbladder circuit," Tennant says. Since it takes eight months to replace the optic nerve, it takes longer to notice results when treating glaucoma. Also, you're also more likely to merely stabilize the disease than reverse it.
    More Information

    If you've enjoyed this conversation, I would strongly encourage you to join us at the ACIM conference in Orlando, Florida, November 2 through 4. The event is being held at the Florida Conference and Hotel Center. Both Tennant and I, along with many other outstanding speakers, like Steven Sinatra, Jonathon Wright and Lee Cowden, all of whom I have previously interviewed, will be there. You can see the rest of the amazing speakers on the ACIM event page.

    If you are a physician and are interested in learning about how you can use the ketogenic diet and other therapies for cancer, heart disease, Lyme and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, please be sure and come. If you are a patient, there will be a separate and less expensive track on the same date and location. However, you will need to come back to this page at a later date, as the registration page for the event is still unavailable.

    To learn more about how body voltage dictates health and disease, be sure to pick up a copy of Tennant's book, "Healing Is Voltage: The Handbook." You can also learn more on his website, TennantInstitute.com. There you'll also find contact information for his Dallas-based clinic.

    "Again, you have to do everything it takes to make new cells work. The voltage piece is basic. If you don't do that, then nothing works. Even if you eat a perfect diet but don't have voltage in the digestive system, you're still starving to death. You have to have the voltage. You have to have the nutrition. You have to deal with the toxins. You have to do all of those," Tennant says.

    Surprising High Carb Foods That Will Ruin a Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer

    Sugar Alcohols

    Sugar alcohols are a hybrid between a sugar molecule and an alcohol molecule - but are neither one nor the other

    A sugar alcohol is also know as a polyol and can be classified as a carb - most are derived from corn starch from genetically modified corn

    Commonly included in most sugar free and “low-carb” products, but they do have a caloric/carb value

    Each gram of a sugar alcohol turns into anywhere from less than 1 to as much as 3 calories.

    Use of Sugar Alcohols

    Sugar alcohols are are slowly and incompletely absorbed in the body.

    Once they are absorbed they use very little to no insulin to convert to energy as sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed in the digestive system

    A process called “passive diffusion” takes place - sugar alcohols that were consumed draw water into the bowels - results in only partial breakdown

    The un-metabolized part of the sugar alcohol starts to rot, which creates a favorable environment for undesirable bacteria and pathogens to thrive and grow

    How to Calculate

    Subtract half of the grams of sugar alcohol listed on the food label from the total grams of carbs

    Ex: Carbs: 20, Sugar Alcohol: 10, Total Carbs: 15

    Fiber

    Dietary fibers are considered complex carbs, but because fiber doesn’t raise blood glucose, low-carb dieters don’t “count” fiber since our body’s digestive enzymes can’t break it down

    Fiber can provide calories, not as glucose, but as products of fermentation in the colon, similar to a sugar alcohol

    Some fibers, called soluble fibers, either absorb water and become gels or dissolve in water and reach the intestine where they are digested by bacteria.

    As they are digested by bacteria, soluble fibers produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that provide your body energy.

    The FDA estimates that fibers fermented by bacteria provide about 2 calories per gram of fiber.

    Insoluble fibers travel to the intestine with very little change. Instead of being digested, insoluble fibers increase bulk, soften stool, and shorten transit time through the gastrointestinal tract.

    Starchy Vegetables (corn, peas, squash, lima beans)

    Starchy foods are often referred to as 'carbs' because they have such a high carb count - there are many types of vegetables, referred to as starchy vegetables, that are actually fairly high in carbs

    For example:

    1-cup of cooked sweet corn contains about 31 grams of total carbs, including 3.6 grams of fiber, 6.8 grams of sugar

    A cup of cooked peas provides 25 grams of total carbohydrates, 8.8 grams of fiber and 9.5 grams of sugar

    1 Medium-sized potato contains 37 grams of carbs, 4 of which are fiber

    All digestible starch gets turned into sugar as it passes through the digestive tract - results in elevations in blood sugar and dangerously higher insulin levels

    Means that even seemingly healthy food choices can lead to increases in blood sugar and insulin, which can lead to insulin resistance, prediabetes, or diabetes
