High Stress Foods To Avoid

People ask us, what should we avoid when constructing a healthier food regimen? It is amazing to us how many people THINK they are healthy, THINK they eat pure foods. When faced with what we suggested, the change in their lifestyle now seemed to loom large. After all, they have a family to feed! Why do people on a healthy journey only think they have to cook and buy for themselves? This is an act of love to help convert the whole family. By creating wonderful meals, coupled with education children and spouses will come to realize why a plan of change is introduced.

Everyone is stressed. Children will not use those words but their symptoms, their sleep patterns, their fatigue, their frequent colds and sore throats, their bowel habits, their irritability will speak volumes. By eliminating something you have CONTROL over is the first step toward a compassionate health movement. Giving in to the crappy foods, giving in to fatigue that controls not wanting to cook, giving in to giving in when a child whines or a spouse demands requires patience and teaching skills. We have seen it work successfully and we know if not 100% of the time, then most of the time, families are more bonded, friendly, happier with each other and health improves. We have seen children and teenagers actually make better choices. And without choice there is resistance!

The High Stress Foods to Avoid requires more attention than you give your television set.

1. Foodless snacks. These are the highly processed sugary, white bread, cookies, crackers, TV dinners, pancakes, waffles, cakes, ice cream, donuts, candy, chips.
You already know about this. All the salty stuff at the end of the night interferes with the adrenal glands. The Sugary stuff turns into alcohol, dehydrates cells and leeches calcium from the bones, muscles, nerves and teeth leading to mineral deficiencies. We count on minerals to sustain us! Foodless snacks in a word, dead food.

2, Foods with Chemicals. Do you check for all the wording in ingredients you cannot pronounce? Dyes, artificial flavors are a coverup for highly toxic chemicals. Have you noticed recently that the Easter egg dyes are still being used even while you can use products that have coloring like beets or carrots? Don't be fooled by the pretty colors.

3. Fruits that have been sprayed. Top of the list are strawberries. There are community farms that grow organic strawberries. Choose organic when shopping in the stores. Any berry that has been fumigated, dryed, waxed or sprayed is full of pesticides and herbicides and fungicides. Same for vegetables. After strawberries, is spinach, then corn.

4, Fruits or Vegetables in Cans. Most are overly sweetened and over cooked leeching the minerals and vitamins. Make organic fresh your first choice and eventually your only choice.

5. Commercial Eggs. If you go back to older posts, check our article on organic eggs. I am sure it will change your perspective. Always go organic, and best pasture raised.

6. Hydrogenated Shortening. This applies also to Crisco, heat treated oils esp corn, safflower, sunflower and margarine. Soy margarine and vegetable shortening may contain heavy metal nickel and cadmium as catalysts. Know the lingo when reading ingredients. Anything soy is sprayed heavily and very disruptive to the cell membrane. Go with Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil. If you need shortening in a pie crust, try Spectrum.

7. Deep Fried Foods. All the essential fatty acids are broken down into toxic by-products at these high temperatures. And what oil do they use? It is as cardiologists have said, a heart attack waiting to happen. 

8. Commercial milk and milk products. Much of this has been written about in our older posts. Please re-visit. These products contain artificial coloring, flavoring, emulsifiers, and sweeteners. Non-dairy creamers also have this largely. Processed cow's milk that is pasteurized, homogenized, dried or canned has a source of toxic growth hormones and homogenized fats. Commercial butter contains the toxic steroids, antibiotics and pesticides.
The answer? Go with unsalted organic butter but use wisely. Eliminate all milk products and stick with almond milk and coconut milk. We make our own almond milk. Very easy. Most of the milk needed for cooking or baking is from coconut creamers. Excellent. We made buttermilk from a coconut creamer mixed with lemon juice. The Irish GF soda bread turned out amazing.

9. Soft Drinks. Our children patients only drink water or fruit in water. Soda pop is terribly damaging with or without sugar. Avoid the stimulating energy drinks that exhaust the adrenals and pancreas because the primary ingredient is sugar and caffeine and the side effects are nervousness, tremors, anxiety, irritability, headaches and increased blood pressure and heart rate, increased stomach acid and insomnia. The caffeine content is NOT regulated by the FDA. We know cardiologists that have had an influx of young people having palpitations!

10. Coffee. We all love a good cup of coffee but then there are people who cannot get through the day without it. That kind of need is concerning. Coffee contributes to indigestion, adrenal exhaustion and acid imbalance resulting in buildup of toxic waste, cardiovascular and auto immune disorders and arthritis. Uric acid in the breakdown of caffeine can cause kidney stones, gout and aggravate prostate conditions. Remember even de-caf has tars. Tars in the roasting process end up as liver deposits and the body is unable to neutralize them. Coffee and tea destroy B vitamins and inhibit calcium and iron absorption.  Best choice is organic coffee and organic dried coffee and limit the frequency. Above and beyond that, Matcha Tea is a great choice for razor sharp focus and energy.

11. Synthetic Sweeteners. Nutrasweet ( Aspartame) is a wolf in sheep's clothing. It is made of 40% aspartic acid and glutamic acid= 99% MSG. 50% is phenylalanine which cause levels of serotonin in the brain to decrease. 10% is Methanol which is basically wood alcohol, which in the body becomes formaldehyde. Aspartame has found to be neurotoxic, exciting the neurons in the brain to the point of cellular death ( allowing too much calcium into the cells) creating memory loss and decreased brain function. Aspartame is everywhere. Read read read ingredients. There has been a shift of sugar to this. Especially in breath mints and chewing gum.

12. Commercial Peanut Butter. Gone is Skippy and Jif from our lives. Peanuts are a legume, not a nut and carry the carcinogenic mold called aflatoxin. This mold also grows on grains, corn and other nuts and soybeans. They are heavily sprayed and now trying to spray the organic versions. One Dr suggested Arrowhead mills organic peanut butter because it is grown in New Mexico which is arid and virtually free of the mold. This is a major problem and to try to find out where the organic nuts are grown!

13. Sulphured, Dried Fruit. Sulphur dioxide shows up in fruit juices, wine, beer and some sauces, pickles. This can cause tight chests in persons with asthma or scratchy feeling in the back of the throat and rashes.

14. Refined heated table salt. We still see people and restaurants using Mortons iodized salt or some kind of cheap brand. No wonder we have issues with the cardiovascular!  Eighty important elements are eliminated when the salt is heated.Table salt contains sodium solo-co-aluminate, iodide, sodium bicarbonate, fluoride, anti-caking agents, toxic amounts of potassium iodide and aluminium derivatives. It is a toxic nightmare. Always go with sea salt and Himalayan salt that is harvested and air and wind dried. Thus the trace elements are retained for immune, adrenal and thyroid function. Celtic salt is another great choice.

15. Salted, Roasted Nuts. This changes the mineral chemistry of the body. Choose RAW nuts. Walnuts has high Vit E and omega 3-6. Macadamia nuts are high in monosaturated fat, high in thiamine ( B1), phosphorus, selenium, calcium and potassium. Almonds are the only alkaline nut, stabilizes blood sugar. Cashews have high levels of magnesium and are filling! Hazelnuts contain good protein. Pistachios contain calcium, magnesium, Vit A fiber and iron. Pecans have high Vit E and helps decrease cholesterol levels. Pine nuts contain high Vit B1 and can suppress appetite. However go easy on pine nuts.

16.Tap Water. Gone are the days when we could drink out of our tap or hose or water fountains. Tap contains aluminum because it allows the dirt to settle out of the water, copper because they use that to kill algae, toxic chlorides they use to disinfect, flourides- which is a neurotoxin. This is what they add to the municipal water supplies. Cadmium is in the pipes. Avoid the constant plastic bottle water that leeches into the water. Carbon and carbon block filters do not remove most toxic metals. Only distillation and reverse osmosis does. Choose a system of purified water! Also add to the list, a chloride filter for your shower.

17. Microwaved Foods. We stopped this in 2002 when our microwave leaked. We researched and you can read one of our older posts on microwaves. Very informative.
Water molecules have a positive and negative charge, one at each end. Microwaving reverses the polarity and at high speeds back and forth up to 100 billion times a second, a friction creates a heat that cooks food. However, the water molecules become torn apart and structurally deformed, thus causing cells to lose their electrical charge, lose nutrients and create harmful compounds. Chemists call this action isomerism. Nursing mothers must never microwave milk as 98% of the immunoglobulin A antibodies and 96% of the liposome activity in the milk ( which inhibits bacterial infections) is lost!

18.Using Aluminum Cookware. "All Vegetables cooked in Aluminum produce hydroxide poison which neutralizes digestive juices, producing stomach and gastrointestinal trouble, such as stomach ulcers and colitis."
 The sale of aluminum cookware is prohibited in Germany, France, Belgium, Gr. Britain Switzerland, Hungary and Brazil. What does that tell you right there?
Choose stainless steel, ceramic covered cast iron or our favorite, SCAN non stick used in Denmark.

19. Synthetic Vitamins. Synthetic vitamins have been marketed as the biggest deception. Ascorbic Acid which is only part of Vitamin C, is one of the fake chemical ingredients. It has been written that, Synthetic, fractionated, crystalline pure vitamins are not whole natural compounds; they are not food which human systems can utilize as nutrients, which will not disrupt normal biochemistry. There are few companies that maintain pure raw food supplements and have some added pure vitamins from food.

What you may have not known!
Farmed Fish has excessive amounts of cadmium, mercury and other toxic metals. If living on West coast of US, only buy Wild caught fish from the North Atlantic because Pacific Ocean fish is compromised since Fukushima.

Cigarette and marijuana smoke are high in cadmium ( cigarette paper) and crops sprayed with pesticides on tobacco and herbs.

Avoid diets that are extreme because there will be deficiency in essential nutrients. Remember high protein especially with meat will burden the kidney.

Over the counter and prescription drugs contain toxic metals, as example Cipro and Prozac are high in flouride. Vaccines and flu shots contain metals as well among other critical toxic material.
Antiperspirants contain high toxic metals. Go with deodorants. Check for cosmetics, soaps, lotions that contain aluminum. Dental bridges contain nickel. Check your hair dyes for lead. Selsun Blue Shampoo for example has high levels of selenium.
Check your garden products as well.

Vegetarian diets: our soils are deficient in zinc, but zinc is also found in animal protein. Our bodies are not meant to exist on pure raw food diets. We need some cooked, some raw. Skipping meals, eating on the run or substituting energy bars for a meal is a bad idea.

Yeast and fungus infections are fed by carbs, sugars of any kind, and fermented foods like cheese, wine, beer, soda, mushrooms, peanuts, mustard, ketchup. Even Mayo clinic records that chronic sinusitis and many colds and flu's are caused by fungus.

High stressful lifestyles must be managed or it will translate to ill health. You know people, if not yourself that runs the clock, even on days off, has little sleep because work must come first and health last. Then high stress foods are ingested which affects every molecule of your being.

We are not meant to race through life for anything; not money or family driving us, or competitive business. We are meant to pace ourselves, our challenge to understand the balance and the joy of life. If not, it will give us consequences we have no control over.

Facing a New Year of Uncertainty

When we were young and invincible did we even ever cogitate a life past the 2000 mark? And now it is 2017 and for us then, we would have imagined a science fiction world complete with flying cars and stately concept buildings and robotic fixtures. But not yet. We should have, but not yet because of secret bureaucracy and government suppression especially that which is against innovative free energy. We feel the pinch and squeeze in our limbs and heart. Life is still hard and we still struggle against unbeatable odds. Right? We exercise, eat as healthy as we can when we are able to afford the organic foods, when we can convince our family members how important THAT is for prolonged life and sustained life. But then we hit the daily walls of inflation, unemployment or the need to work those extra hours to pay that irritating new bill, family drama that sucks us dry, inconsistent weather patterns that crash our health, promises we intended to, but cannot keep, and the bottomless pit of workaholicism stripping us from a most needed life.

We look at 2017 now with an oh well, another year. We laugh at the resolutions that last 2 weeks. We make plans for something dreamy, then have trouble holding it in our imagination.

Maybe this is the blog post that has a new perspective. Maybe it can shed some light.

We are all in the same boat traveling down the same muddy river. And misery does love company because that is what makes us laugh and marvel and introspect. We are not here to change the world, really. The world is a big ticket item. We are here to serve others in whatever small way we can. It is the spiritual exhale that when inhaled again brings renewal to our life force.

I believe we must live in the moment, not in the wishing and hoping ( future) or the desperation and worry and self pity ( past). Great minds have told us that the only place change is created is in the present. In present time consciousness.

We have seen a mob mentality of hate through this last Election and that emotion lives on eating away the souls that live it. If I put God before me, how can hate have a place? Perhaps WE as a mass consciousness surfaced all these emotions because once surfaced, it does have a way to release the past, but release and let go and open the door to new possibilities, probabilities! Doesn't life have a way to still nudge us toward love?

Happier, Healthier New Year Dear Ones!

The Living Embryo of Whole Wheat

For our 46th Wedding Anniversary the good Doctor purchased something I have always wanted. No, it wasn't a diamond bracelet which is still on my bucket list, but a whole grain mill. And some wheat kernels that were non-GMO, non-irradiated so I could make a low gluten bread. 

For over 10 years it was all about gluten free wheat free in between the occasional cheat. However, the idea that came to my mind was this. In our great grandparents day the wheat was harvested whole and not disturbed. The era of true farming. A throwback to the old ancient ways. Since then our nation has health problems infinitum and the big corrupter of that was flour made from wheat that was stripped of its germ, bran and endosperm. Those vital nutrients were given to the livestock. We, the people got the cardboard nothingness. So flour companies had to enrich it with vitamins and still pass it off as white goodiness. In the meantime, celiac diseases came about, gluten sensitivity and intolerance and then the hundreds of gut diseases ( our second brain). Cancers abounded and people just went into dire fatigue.

I thought about all that and asked myself, why was this stripping even allowed? Corporation take over which added to my list of all the evils, Monsanto at the top of the list because the wheat was not fit for consumption with glysophate attacking its genome.

I had to find farms that remained pure and they are out there. Then buy the kernels that were nurtured and mill the wheat myself, then figure out how to make the bread with a very low gluten percentage. I studied and learned that the longer the starter upward towards 19 hours room temp, the more microbiome is created from the atmosphere. THIS is how our ancestors did it. They did not have yeast. When I investigated some of the celebrity chefs here and in France and around the world, I was inspired. What began this journey was that the first two loaves of regular breadmaking turned into a fiasco with the whole milled wheat. I could use them as doorstops. So now my mission was to create a bread using a formula that incorporated the long rise. One of my huge idols in the business of food purity is Dan Barber. You can hear and see him working his artform on the Netflix original called Chefs Table. Here is a bit from an article written about him called "Bread is Broken". I am paraphrasing to put it into a storyline but this is the gist of it.


There is a 600 sf room known as the Bread Lab in Mt. Vernon Washington State, where Stephen Jones who has a Doctorate in genetics from UC Davis,and now works for Washington State University, evaluates all the chemistry of pure wheat dough. It has been his office for the last 4 years and the great chefs like Chad Robertson of Tartine,  Jeffrey Hamelman of King Arthur Flour, revered Jone's work. Now Chef Dan Barber of Blue Hill at Stone Barnes restaurant ( 60 day waiting list for a very expensive meal) has asked Jones to create Barber wheat through cross pollination, all the while maintaining sustainability. Jones was taught the craft of breeding a long time ago. He knew wheat had a hundred hermaphrodite flowers which in essence allows the plant to self pollinate. His career goal was to improve the yield and disease resistant wheat cultivars used in industrial milling but after a disgusted view of what wheat was used for, he left and began a purer journey with Washington State.

Dr. Stephen Jones, PhD.

The giant band of wheat that stripes the center of America is a byproduct of the industrial age. From the 18th century to the early 19th century, wheat was grown mainly near the coasts. During this time, immigrants and American emissaries introduced numerous varieties — Mediterranean, Purple Straw, Java, China, Pacific Bluestem — which breeders tinkered with, adapting them to various soils. All that preindustrial wheat was a living library of flavors: vanilla, honeysuckle, black pepper. Agricultural journals of the time noted the idiosyncrasies of wheat kernels — whether they were red and bearded, velvety or ‘‘plump, round, of a coffeelike form’’ — and distinguished wheats that produced ‘‘excellent’’ and ‘‘well-flavored’’ bread from those that yielded ‘‘inferior’’ loaves. Two wheats in particular, Red Fife and Turkey Red, became immensely popular in part because of their robust nuttiness.

It was in 1839 that the kernel was sheared with the steel roller mill. Before then, stone or wood was used. Because the fragrant nutrients were stripped, the flour if not used immediately, turned rancid.

People think when they buy whole wheat flour it's pure. The germ and bran are added back in after the stripping. How integral do you think that is? The oily germ has a shelf life. Which, by the way, is a crock to think you are getting healthy wheat germ anywhere in a bottle.

The ongoing work in Bread Lab is developing nutty dark breads with delicious aromas of chocolaty, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg. The outcome relies on how the soil is nurtured, what was harvested there, and the cross pollination.

I am not ready to shout out my research regarding a good bread baked just yet but you will know when I do.

This Whole Vaccine Thing

We have considerable honor for one more physician who has put his entire reputation on the line for what he knows as truth. If you have never heard of Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, MD I will introduce you to him. He is most likely retired from active practice now, but was a neurosurgeon. Do you think he knew the workings of the brain? His exemplary research into autism, brain conditions and vaccine influence is immeasurable. His bio from his website:  www.blaylockreport.com

 He attended the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans and completed his internship and neurosurgical residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. For over a quarter of a century, he practiced in the demanding field of neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice.

Dr. Russell Blaylock is the 2004 recipient of the Integrity in Science Award granted by the Weston A. Price Foundation. He serves on the editorial staff of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association and is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, official publication of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
He previously served as Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS, and is currently a visiting professor of biology at the Belhaven College, also in Jackson.

 For quick study, I will list some bullet points:

1. Excessive vaccination can increase the risk of not only autism, but also schizophrenia and neurodegenerative diseases.

2. The above has been researched, proven and validated in hundreds of studies on a molecular level that includes cell culture studies, mixed cell cultures, organotypic tissue studies, in vivo animal studies and human studies.

3. In 1983 before autism, children received 10 vaccinations. Incidence of autism was 1 in 10,000 then.
Today, before the age of 2, children receive 23 vaccines and 36 vaccines before they attend school. In 2005 the incidence was 1 in 250 children. Incidence of autism is  NOW 1 in 150 children. Why the increase? Studies point to autoimmune risks where there is dysfunctional immune systems in families(serums from Mothers binding with specific brain cells), higher autoantibodies(serotonin receptors, myelin basic protein, neuron axon filament protein, nerve growth factor and cerebellar neurofilaments.) Methylmercury ( from fish) and ethylmercury ( from thimerosal in vaccines). Both powerful immunosuppressants.

4. There is a "hand grenade in a shopping mall effect" of which neuroscientists found that the damage done in autoimmunity is not due to the reaction with brain structures but rather from release of
STORMS of free radicals and lipid peroxidation products during the reaction. The cliche used means that the hand grenade not only harms the individual but injures all of the bystanders as well.

5. CDC recommends separating the powerful MMR ( measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine with live viruses, from OTHER live virus vaccines to prevent viral overgrowth yet they continue to combine MEASLES with mumps and rubella.

6. There are vaccines with  only a FEW strains of the bacteria or virus and this can cause a shift in strain dominance ( so the strain NOT included then becomes the dominant disease causing strain) Many pediatricians are not aware of this.

7. Children exposed to a Western diet using immune suppressing corn, safflower, sunflower, canola, peanut and soybean oils are making the vaccinated child more susceptible to infection and vaccine complications.

8. Over vaccinating weakens the immune system.

9. There is a higher incidence of ear infections in children, with antibiotics prescribed which often leads to candida overgrowth in the child's body. Both infections will prime the microglia in the child's brain. This is the brain's specific resident immune cell. This is also primed by the early Hep B vaccination given soon after birth.

10. Vaccine infection is different than natural infection as the vaccine infection produces brain immune stimulation for very prolonged periods. Natural infection eventually shuts down the microglia immune stimulation. With vaccines it does not shut down. This was extensively found in the Vargas study of autistics from age 5 to 44 yrs of age.

11.30-82% of autistic children develop seizures. What causes this is the release of the excitotoxin glutamate and quinolinic acid from the immune stimulated microglia and astrocytes. Many cases of these seizures they are silent or manifest in behavioral problems. This may go unnoticed as a seizure activity however, pediatricians and the CDC say that infants and children with seizures should NOT be vaccinated.

12. Those children who are vaccinated with the full spectrum, show the injection site as red, swollen and painful. Then, the high pitched crying, lethargy and poor feeding that can last for weeks or months. THIS IS NOT DUE TO THE INJECTION BUT TO BRAIN INFLAMMATION, WHAT WE CALL THE ENCEPHALITIC CRY.

11. The recent release of a combination vaccine by Merck, ProQuid resulted in twice as many seizures. It contains MMR antigens, chickenpox viral antigen ( 5 x that of a single dose).

12. It is well known in neurology that low sodium levels can also trigger seizures. ( even in normal people) In a child it can result in rapid coma and death. In the presence of brain inflammation, these seizures are higher. ( IV's such as 5% dextrose and water have little or no sodium. I am convinced that children who died with meningitis fever with such IV's running into their bodies died of hyponatremia- low sodium, says Dr. B)

13. Rapid brain development occurs in the last trimester in utero and continues to the first two years of life with emotions, emotional control, thinking , language, complex memory. Women who are infected with the flu during pregnancy are more likely to give birth to an autistic or schizophrenic child depending on where the virus infection occurs. This is increased now with the flu shot for pregnant women.

14. The adjuvants in the vaccine is a major concern. Added to the vaccine is albumin, aluminum ( which could be aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate or aluminum potassium sulfate), amino acids, DNA, residues, egg protein, gelatin, monosodium glutamate (MSG a known neurotoxin), MRC-5 cellular protein, and various antibiotics. Some bacterial or viral contaminants- their particulates, fragmented matter). Aluminum is supposed to boost the immune reaction and make it prolonged, yet this also prolongs the microglia reaction with an inability to "shut down" normally.

15. New emerging syndrome is macrophagic myofascititis  attributed to the aluminum adjuvant, especially associated with Tetanus and Hep B vaccine. 100 victims so far have severe muscle weakness and joint pains first described in France with brain injury. Now known, aluminum accumulates in the brain and results in neurodegeneration. This is seen in Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease. Studies show that aluminum phosphate was absorbed 2.9 x faster and higher than aluminum hydroxide. The results? They found it in kidney, spleen, liver, heart, lymph nodes and brain. Aluminum enhances the toxicity of Mercury. Flouride in drinking water, foods and dental treatments would react with the brain aluminum as well creating a neurotoxic fluroaluminum combination.

16. Vaccine safety promoters say that new studies have shown that ethylmercury in thimerosal disappears from the blood within several days. Actually, the mercury leaves the plasma and enters the brain where it is de-ethylated and remains for a lifetime. What they fail to mention is that only 7% of methylmercury is converted to ionic mercury whereas 34% of ethylmercury ( the most destructive) is converted within a short time. Meaning this mercury is retained in the brain quicker. Vaccine mercury also enters the stool in high concentrations where it recirculates repetitively meaning each cycle, the mercury has access to the brain.

17. Mercury poisons the protective enzymes of neurons ( brain cells). Mercury can come from seafood, environment, vaccines, dental amalgams.

18. More males autistic because of the testosterone levels.

19. Autistic children often have dysbiosis ( overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria and fungi and loss of probiotic organisms in gut). Candida can penetrate the gut wall and enter the blood stream to tissues, organs and brain.

20. Communist China is the largest vaccine manufacturer in the world with over 400 biopharmaceutical companies and the FDA admits it inspects only 1.8% of the 714 drug firms in China.

"The Danger of Excessive Vaccination During Brain Development: The Case for a Link to Autism Spectrum Disorders" by Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.

Review of the book Medical Medium by Anthony William


 Anthony William Medical Medium

I had walked into the Barnes and Noble bookstore one day and migrated ( as if pulled) in the direction of a table that had new books to peruse. There it was. I knew I had to have it, without any prior knowledge or review, I believe Spirit directed me to pick it up. Then I brought it home and devoured its contents. My uptake? I have come to believe in my long life, that there are special gifted souls who come here to help us remember the truth of who we are, in a way that this present reality of what we are inundated with cannot touch.

Anthony William at the age of 4 heard a kind and nurturing voice that has stayed with him all his life directing him to learn and know the human body and the energy fields that nourish the human biologic. His ability to see and scan the cellular levels of the body is uncanny. He claims that when he is directed to visualize a medical problem, all becomes white in his vision and what is highlighted is the inside of the body only. After such a visual, he needs to rest his eyes and cannot "see" for some hours, as if blinded. His accuracy in diagnosis has brought many medical experts to evaluate his ability and follow how his trend has markedly changed many people in need.

In each chapter of his book, he targets specific maladies, conditions and diseases of mystery. You know the routine: The Doctor gives a diagnosis and says to you, " You have such and such but we do not know why, nor is there a cure yet.

Anthony will say that it will be decades before science discovers certain causes or cures. So, Anthony lives in our far future, observing the scenario's within our structure, giving us a clue as to how we can prevent, remedy or understand the underlying causes. He is careful to give direction toward food choices to focus on, herbs and supplements that will support and help diffuse a raging illness without putting himself in the way of medical business. However, those of us who seek a truth of that, those of us who are clearly observing the manner of illness on the rise despite medications and "research" and all the fundraising in the billions of dollars toward terminal illnesses that are not changing the picture of health. Those of us who see the decline of health readily in our family lives, our community our nation and world, that we are at the crossroads and need to seek an alternative approach, an approach that aligns with nature will embrace this book as extraordinary. 

Let's take the idea of immune suppressed illness. Top of the list!
Can you bring yourself to eat these foods regularly? Wild blueberries, sesame tahini, spinach, avocadoes, black beans, black grapes, asparagus, apples, cucumbers, coconuts, papayas, pears, artichokes, bananas, sweet potatoes, asparagus, lettuce, green beans? ***
Can you bring yourself to grab a piece of fruit instead of a cookie, cake or donut?

One of the main changes we have made? For years we ate gluten free wheat free, focusing mostly on vegetables, very little chicken, no red meat, very little fish, protein mostly from the vegies and legumes and nuts and seeds. Yes, the carbs sneak in and that has not served except to satisfy the moment. When you reach the autumn of your life, you think you have to Re-Think your choices. But don't wait that long, our final wisdom.

The change was adding more fresh fruit. Everyday. The change was also adding vegetable juices every day. If I cannot juice, I run to the Whole Foods produce because there they juice amazing vegetable combinations. Anthony William advises straight celery juice*** ( yes it is bitter but who cares?) to reduce blood pressure, detox, change the whole composition of viral attack.

His knowledge points to virus. Sure we have bacteria floating around and we already know bacteria can reside in virus and vice versa. However, the culprit for most diseases is virus. And guess what? Modern medicine has no defense for that. But raw food supplements and homeopathic does. In our practice we treat for need, not prevention, yet prevention is the end product of the remedy. It is about the clean out of the toxic cell membrane and changing the ability of the disruption there to allow toxic elements to leave and good nutrients to enter. Hormone disruption, which is a blockade, exists right there at that membrane. 

Going back to FRUIT. We were all told of the sugar that compels disease to begin and sustain with fruit. We were ill advised just as we were ill advised about a hundred other things, the "four food charts", the cholesterol myth, the eggs that would kill off our hearts etc.

He writes that fruit sugar leaves the stomach in 3-6 minutes and never touches the intestinal tract. That fruit does not feed candida. That the fiber in the pulp and skin and seeds actually KILL all varieties of parasites, worms and Ecoli and strep. That fruit is a secret weapon against cancer. What IS bad for candida/fungus is processed sugar, beet sugar, agave, soft drinks and corn fructose.*** And Fat and protein also feed candida. Anti-fungal medications wipe out all the good bacteria in the gut that are fighting for you. 

Another observation of Anthony we noted: "Candida does not perforate the colon resulting in leaky gut. Instead the worse case scenario is that it creates calluses on irritated portions of the intestinal lining that hinders food absorption. That is just the gut. Candida is more infectious because it can disguise as a cover of strep in the vagina." ***Ah, more interesting now.

I recommend the book for awareness. It has the opportunity to open and widen eyes once narrow and suspicious and closed off thinking the old way is the tried and true way. It is not. We are in the future of deciding what is best for our bodies if we are to live long enough to be in service to our life plan.

The Emergence of Disease

1910 : Margarine, a chemical synthesization of vegetable oil is introduced as a substitute for butter; by 1950 the average American consumed 8 lbs. of margarine a year. This was the beginning of highly saturated trans fats and high cholesterol levels, entering the U.S. diet.
In 1911, Crisco was introduced bringing heart attacks and coronary artery disease, virtually unknown to physicians at that time.

1921: General Mills Corp invented a character called Betty Crocker to convince generations of Americans to use processed foods. Prior to this date only 20 cases of endometriosis in women were recorded. By the late 1990's 20 % of women of childbearing age in the U.S. were afflicted with endometriosis.

1929: An additive called thimerosal ( a form of Mercury) caused death in lab subjects. Despite this finding, the additive was used in most vaccines for the rest of the 20th century.

2000: National Academy of Sciences reports that half of all pregnancies in the U.S. result in less-than-healthy babies. One third of developmental defects are caused by exposure to toxic chemicals.

1983: Coke and Pepsi switched from a 50-50 mix of sugar and corn syrup to a 100% high fructose corn syrup sweetener.

1989: A lab in Boston found that giving flouride to rats in moderate amts in water, gave birth to hyperactive babies, retardation and cognitive defects. Higher levels are given to humans than what are administered to rats. In 1992, the University of Utah published that fluoridation weakens bones and increases the risk of hip fractures.

Be the Captain of your Ship

I had to use that term many times in my career. Are you a step ahead of the game of health or are you like a herd of sheep following whatever is a trend?

As a devoted family, we were at the bedside of our Mother who had a 911 Paramedic call on this Christmas Eve, thus spending our Eve for 5.5 hours in ER and another couple in ICU at her side. She was alert, awake and making sure all of us knew she would never consent to intubation. That medical directive was already written but she was no where near that deciding factor. Her issue was with blood values off the chart that created symptoms and a severe acidotic state. Over five days that was rectified somewhat but what happens when all the specialists come to her side and want to do all the procedures that are unnecessary? That is when our Mother became Captain of her own Ship. She is almost 89 yrs old but clear enough to say, how stupid to put me through a colonoscopy while I am in crisis! Because of that big NO, the hospital decided she did not want intervention so the main agenda was to "get her discharged as soon as possible". I watched in awe some things I would never do as a nurse which was my career decades ago. Nurses have forgotten themselves. What happened to bed baths? Those are no longer done. If a quick clean up for various parts are done, it is with chemical wipes by an aide. RNs or LVNs no longer do those menial tasks. I was for most of my career a critical care nurse and headed an ICU CCU unit in a teaching hospital - many teaching hospitals. To see an ICU nurse not attend to the graveness of poor urine output and wait until I became Captain of my Mothers Ship to get an order to ameliorate the issue was unacceptable. The list became quite long and even though it was a holiday weekend, nurses had no time. No time to call a Dr. No time to speak with family or patient. No time to catch up to their own overwhelming schedule of patients. The rudeness and dismissal of our questions of our Mother was intolerable. We have three RNs and 4 Chiropractors in our family! Our questions were definitive and concerning.

This is only a personal example of why we need to be in charge of our own health or our ailing elderly family members health.

To take this further, there are countless people who do not know the names of their medications they take nor what actions or side effects they have. They do not question. This is beyond our understanding.

I will use an example of Statins. Statins are ordered by a primary Doctor or Cardiologist to regulate cholesterol levels. Did you know that the medical organizations are bribed by the pharmaceutical companies to lower the blood cholesterol values so they can push for more and more statins for profit? Do you even know the side effects of Statins?  Here is what Natural News reports:

 The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology is entitled "The Impact of Statins on Biological Characteristics of Stem Cells Provides a Novel Explanation for Their Pleotropic Beneficial and Adverse Clinical Effects."

The study abstract states that statin drug "side effects include memory loss, myopathy, cataract formation, and increased risk of diabetes." It also warns that "Statins also impaired the expression of DNA repair genes including XRCC4, XRCC6, and Apex1."

I don't know about you, but for me this is a red alert. I once showed my primary physician a study done on certain drugs prescribed that actually raise the cholesterol level! He did not know and thanked me for the information. 
Cholesterol is vital for body and brain function. Did you know that LOW blood cholesterol has been recorded in criminals who have committed murder and violent crimes, people with violent and aggressive personalities, people prone to suicide and sociopathic behavior?
Low blood cholesterol has been routinely recorded in criminals who have committed murder and other violent crimes, people with aggressive and violent personalities, people prone to suicide and people with aggressive social behavior and low self-control. - See more at: http://www.westonaprice.org/know-your-fats/cholesterol-friend-or-foe/#sthash.dbw6WpVW.dpuf

A wonderful article by Dr. Weston Price on this:
Before anyone gives you a medication, a supplement, an herb, be the Captain of your Own Ship and ask questions, research yourself before you comply.
