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.
A child named Virginia was the first child born with autism in 1931, the first year thimerosal was used in vaccines. In 1991, six month old babies received 87 times higher amts of thimerosal than what was considered safe.

1935: Only one case of cancer reported in the Inuit of Alaska and Canada in the previous 50 yrs. After adopting a processed food diet between 1935 and 1970, the cancer rate there exploded and rivaled other U.S and Canadian consumers.

1938: Big Pharma company Roche led the world in industrial synthesis of Vitamins. A law was passed from the FDA that enforced, not the safety of the product, but the accuracy of information on the product labels.

1947: Sex hormones are introduced into livestock for more weight and fat. One of these hormones is DES, later learned to cause cancer. Despite FDA banning DES, it was continued to be illegally administered to animals.

1948: MSG was added to processed foods, including baby food. By the end of the century, MSG was found to be triggering toxic reactions in the human body. In 1968 a scientist in Washington University in St. Louis found that MSG in mice caused brain damage, esp. in immature and newborn animals.

1950: Before this date, cattle grazed in open spaces and grass fed. Twenty years later, cattle are placed in crowded feedlots and injected with antibiotics and hormones, fed a diet of processed sewage, poultry litter, shredded newspaper, sawdust laced with ammonia, tallow and grease.

1953: George Waldbott, V.P. of American College of Allergists warned about flouride in water causing painful and acute allergies. When Dr. Waldbott’s patients stopped drinking flouridated water, so did their headaches, muscle weaknesses and stomach upsets.

1956: Perfluorochemicals used in Teflon introduced. In 2004, blood tests revealed that 96% of U.S. children had one of the nonbiodegradable chemicals in their bloodstream.

1961: Ritalin introduced for use by children with behavioral problems. In 1975, 150,000 children were on Ritalin. By 2005, one million American children are on the drug representing 85% of the world use.
1963: The drug thalidomide is given to pregnant women for morning sickness. More than one thousand babies were born with severe deformities. The drug was not removed from the marketplace until six yrs later.

From 1970 to 2001 a jump from 6 billion to 110 billion spent on fast food chains occurred.

1971: War on Cancer announced by U.S. Congress with the National Cancer Act in place. 30 yrs later, the overall death rate remained the same.

1971: Japanese food scientists synthesize a cheaper sweetener: high fructose corn syrup to introduce into frozen foods to prevent freezer burn. Once consumed, it was learned in later years, it arrives almost intact in the human liver, not breaking down.

From 1973-1991, there was a 126% rise in prostate cancer, 17 % childhood leukemia, 26% rise in childhood brain cancer, 25% in breast cancer, 41% in testicular cancer.

1973: FDA finally bans the artificial coloring agent Violet No.1 , a revealed carcinogen, used to stamp every piece of meat in the U.S.

1974: artificial sweetener, Aspartame approved. A year later, G.D. Searle and Company was found to have falsified some of the data, hiding info regarding animals fed aspartame had developed seizures and brain tumors. No recall or ban was enforced. In 1983 a neuroscientist wrote that aspartame increases body weight bc it stimulates a craving for calorie laden carbohydrates. In 1994, 88 toxic symptoms in humans occurred from 1200 food products with Aspartame.

1977-1994: learning disabilities increased 191 % in special ed children.

1980-2000: prescription drug sales tripled to $200 billion /yr in the U.S., a figure that represents half of all prescription drug sales in the entire world.

1995: A study by USC found that there was a higher incidence of leukemia in children who ate more than 12 hot dogs each month. Nitrosamines are used in processing the meat.

1998: 75,500 synthetic chemicals have been registered as appearing in consumer products, agriculture and industry. The American Journal of Epidemiology published that serious side effects from chlorinated tap water with an increase of miscarriages.

1999: Erythromycin, after 40 yrs of usage was linked to serious abdominal obstructions.

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.

1992: FDA announced that 65% of women’s cosmetics contain carcinogen contaminants.

1998: FDA discovered that 55% of all grocery foods sampled contained pesticides.

1994: FDA approves the marketing of genetically modified foods. By 2002, 26% of corn, 68% soybeans, 69% of cotton in the U.S. will be genetically modified. And 60% of processed foods will contain these GMO’s.

2001: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announces that the food we eat is responsible for twice the numbers of illnesses in the U.S. in comparison to just seven years earlier.

2001: JAMA publishes a report that 6.7 million adult visits to the doctor for a sore throat between 1989 and 1999 and antibiotics were prescribed in 73% of the visits even though antibiotics do not treat viral infections.

2002: Big Pharma now employs 675 lobbyists incl. 26 former members of congress and spends $91 million a year on influencing decisions made by Congress.

2002: For the first time since 1958 U.S. infant mortality rate increases twice that of Japan and other industrial nations.

2002: One in four Americans visits a fast food restaurant.

2003: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that 1/3rd of all babies born in the U.S. since 2000 will become diabetics.

2004: JAMA publishes a study that reveals that in the previous decade the number of adults with High BP increased by 30%.

2005: Breast milk sampled from women in 18 states is found to contain traces of perchlorate, a toxic component of rocket fuel. Texas Tech Univ researched that the source is likely to be food that was tainted from irrigation water that had collected the toxin in seepage from defense industry plants around the U.S.
2005: Yale School of Medicine researchers reported that food storage containers made of plastic
can lead to learning disabilities in children and neurodegenerative diseases in adults.

Present: U.S. ranks 46th in life expectancy and 42nd in infant mortality among nations of the world.
The U.S. spends more than twice as much on health care than any other industrialized nation in the world.

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:
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:
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.

But I love my White Flour Bread and Pastries!

Credit: ZLiving.comI admit this publicly that I have been guilty of enjoying the scrumptious delicious pastries and donuts and breads from restaurants and bistros along the path of my life. We all have. We have fed them to our children, our families in gatherings. And then, we got older and we knew, we really really knew the pain of our insults.

This is why in our practice we advocate gluten free foods and flours. We cannot be vegan pure like some, or into all raw foods every meal which is contrary to good nutrition. We are not cave men and women either, filling up our palate with grass fed beef and high proteins that plummet the kidney. We need balance in our attempt to strengthen our immune with good food.

I was enamored with a website called  The Naturopathic Doctor is hell bent on exposing practices both in the U.S. and Europe. Many of the events carried on behind our television and newspaper worlds here in America are exposed in European countries news. Take a look at her website.

She brought up salient points about White Flour which I am sharing below.

White bleached refined flour has zero nutrients. Cardboard basically. Back in the day with our great grandparents, they milled their own flour off the wheat grown on their land without pesticides. Their breads and pastries were pure.

Now, we know for sure that industry has removed the wheat bran, six outer layers and the germ ( which accounts for 76% of vitamins and minerals) and 97% of dietary fiber removed also. You have to wonder why constipation and cancer is so prevalent in our society.

By bleaching the flour, chlorine dioxide is used, then chalk, then aluminum, then ammonium chloride ( for texture and appeal) Buying unbleached flour will not gain you any points. All the Vitamin E is removed, 50% of the calcium, 70% of phosphorus, iron, magnesium and Vitamin B. Now, this is what we feed our babies and children who wind up mineral deficient and with suppressed immune!

I'm just getting started.

Potassium Bromate is added to the white flour. That damages cells. It is a category 2B carcinogen that is classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC). Since 1994 this chemical was banned in most countries, BUT NOT THE USA.

Did you know that White Flour kills bugs? And we are consuming it?

Another additive, a non-essential amino acid called L-Cysteine is in White Flour. You have all read this word at some time or other in product ingredients. It is added to speed up industrial processing. But it is also a major link to the allergy epidemic. You see it in all baked goods, pizza dough etc. But here comes the gross part.

It is found in duck feathers and
human hair, cow horns and petroleum
byproducts and it is mostly
sent from China.

White flour destroys the beta cells of the pancreas. This was listed as a potent beta cell toxin in the Textbook of National Medicine. Is that enough to put the puzzle pieces together when coming to conclusions about the diabetic rise in children and adults in our country?

Asian and European countries did not have the obese problem until McDonalds and other fast food establishments were planted there.

I remember while living in two foreign countries, you could not find such a fast food place. The children were not overweight and frought with diabetes back in the seventies in Europe. Children in Europe may have drank wine and beer with their families in restaurants but ate a well balanced meal. Now look at the Asian population far and wide, countries of centuries of eating rice and vegetables with some meat every meal. With fast food joints, they dismiss their traditional eating and pay the price health wise. The health picture is shocking.

Pay attention people. If you must bake, use your creativity and knowledge. The gluten free recipe websites are in the millions online. Pinterest will give you step by step formulas with pictures. You can mix up flours like brown rice, white rice, almond, coconut, sorghum. Teff is not advocated by the way.

You can learn to bake gluten free donuts. You can make bread, thousands learn to do that. You can make glorious cakes, brownies and cookies with gluten free flour. I have done that successfully for over 10 yrs. My pastries have been gobbled up by friends, families and patients at the holidays. You can learn to dupe others with wonderful taste. You just need to want to.

The Bigger Picture

How difficult is it to face the bigger picture? We know of it, we are plummeted by it, we are strong armed to face it at our most vulnerable moments and then we are confused by it, angry at it and wind up with a seething hatred of it that it even exists.

That could very well be applied to any personal big picture, but I am going to remind of the massively big picture as citizens of our world. It could be just this country but many would agree it is everywhere. I read articles written by many thinkers of this world and have compiled these ideologies below from their 
concocted descriptions.

Major Social Issues

1. Corporate media programming with continual lies and propaganda trying to dupe the public into believing their programming which thus, limits and restricts awareness.
How many of us flip the page or fast forward the remote of nonsense commercialized advertising? Magazines you buy at high prices just to read ads and an article or two? Tabloids that exploit personal privacy and many times is untrue? Newsreels that are repetitive to the point of ad nauseum.

2. Our sad state of Education, void of philosophical, social, physical, emotional psychological and behavioral health. Textbooks that are devoid of truth of history, regimented curriculum's, unfair practices and exorbitant tuition. 
 I remember upon entrance into a European University for post graduate medicine major and the tuition was equal to filling up my tank of gas. Textbooks are outrageously expensive in our American country. I remember my son applied to a private University as a transfer student in a specialized category. He was highly qualified, almost over qualified but because he was an independent full time student who paid his own taxes, applying for financial assistance, he was denied entrance. There is a unsaid ruling that blankets the Educational system no one can debate with.

3.Capitalism that keeps society chained to thoughts of a lack of personal prosperity, promoting unhealthy levels of competition, greed and selfishness.
What can be argued is that Capitalism is good for the country but not good for the little man or woman. We live our lives thinking big brother owns us. We are excessive about competitive sports which brings to mind this ideology. If we promote competition, we are promoting the winner/loser concept which cannot be a God thing at all. It diminishes the effort of those who lost and because of the glory, out of it comes very unhealthy behaviors which we have all seen. We have judged, we have seen scandal and corruptness and this is what our kids grow up with becoming big kids instead of adults. Capitalism does not allow abundance of prosperity because with it comes more chains than open doorways.

4. Economic models that ensure poverty and homelessness. The economic depression that never resolves, holding onto a paradigm that abundance for all is not equitable in the least.
Haven't we all asked the question why homelessness still occurs in our "free country"? That we have forgotten our own, we have done damage to our vets and their ability to erase PTSD, financial and medical burdens, that we have looked aside at mental illness and have actually glorified the immigration issue than care for our own citizens who have given their money, taxes, life on the battlefield for their country? People are beginning to believe there is no hope.

5. Globalization. In a sentence, it is killing small economies and small businesses, national sovereignty, and healthy food production. 
Small business owners know this at the heart. Our freedom to choose is now a widespread issue. Do we really choose anymore? And can we trust the voting process at all? Even movies make stories about corrupt voting machines. Actually movies make stories about everything we can think of or question. I think of our patients who worked tirelessly in the movie business, now cannot get work unless they sell their soul and relocate to some far off outsourced place because production will pay the people THERE who live THERE less money. I think of how the Patriot Act has stung the people and the legal process. I think of the assumptions of character, profiles, legal systems gone way corrupt, how favoritism is rewarded. Further, what is going on with GMO, Monsanto and how our crops are poisoned transferring pesticides to our children's brains and immune system. How we are penalized for doing the right thing.
6. Consumerism demoralizes us. It dismisses the ability of inventors to create a healthier approach to serve the people.  
It has been brought to my attention there is a sameness in consumerism. Most people have gray, white or black cars. Most people follow trends that may not be so great for the mind body or spirit but its out there in your face and we must follow those trends, right or we do not belong? This is what leads to addictions of all kinds. This is what leads to children playing devices instead of playing outdoors and reading a book ( and what about all the libraries closing?) Alcohol will always be on the rise for mental and emotional escape reasons. 

7. War on Drugs. Is this not a massive policy failure? In fact Drugs are used as a ploy, a reason, an excuse, a blame for everything from A-Z. There is more violence, more unresolved problems, more heinous crimes, more addictions, more imprisonment and mental illness since we have this big social issue on parade.
There is always the question if we legalize drugs there would not be the crave and crime of it? Take a look at Colorado with marijuana and that is nothing compared to what is on the streets. Give the car keys and whiskey to your kid and there will always be problems and abuse. All this war on drugs and no advance on the war and more restriction of important drugs like hemp and cannabis for health issues. I had a wonderful patient who was a forensic psychologist until she retired. She always said the two things that corrupted our country was opening the border to the pedophile parents, high on a satanic lifestyle on drugs. It began a long time ago and mushroomed.

8. Monopolized Medicines suppressed the effectual natural remedies used successfully by our ancestors. Prescription mania by enslaved unregulated Doctors with little holistic outlook overall.   
There is widespread fear that permeates every clinic and Doctor office, emergency room and hospital corridor. Don't buck the system. And certainly defile anyone that tries to. The medical community is in lock down and dare we question anything. Medicines account for suicides, deep immune system failure, brain rot, and all the diseases we did not count on. We have new superbugs that are in every hospital ward. We invent new horrible antibiotics to accost those bugs and deteriorate the gut, thus needing picc lines that deteriorate the vessels. We have more wound drainage problems than ever. We have abuse of all medication and lives are lost. It is a runaway train. And I say this in the light of now, mandatory vaccines that plummet our immune systems, our children's precious brains, and ensure a lifelong stream of medical problems. All in the name of our freedoms, which have taken a turn in a different direction, disallowing our choice of what to put into our bodies and those we care for. Holistic approaches are the alternative but not enough practitioners who can customize and test the public. It is all a guessing game even by those who hope for a better outcome.

9. A global central banking system privately owned and operated. Financial ponzy schemes ensure the rich get richer and the poor get poorer as the gap widens of the haves and have-nots.
This is the crux of where most sink into depression. Whatever they make is taken. What little social security is never enough. They are forced into living with their children as they age and the children are struggling. All the hype about stocks is an illusion. No one can predict and it becomes a gamble. Certainty gone. Fear and anxiety take residence. The banks have very strict rules. I remember I wanted to have my money deposited immediately into my account. Nope. Cannot do until late into the night. Those are the rules. And that is minor. We live in a world of superior control not superior thinking.
10. Scientism. This is the modern day extremist science that parallels any other fundamentalist belief. This brings about the hypercriticism of those against any possibility or probability thought. Another lock down. 
  These are the ones who must believe we are the only intelligent life in the Universe. These are the ones who defy logistics or are the ones who say to each other, who cares about another useless human life? These are the ones who modulate Hitler like thinking, superior controllers who have their agendas. To allow another bright mind in would be sacrilegious. There is a Doctor in Poland right now who has extracted a chemical out of hemp and has found it to be "curative" to children with terminal disorders. He has been cast away but he has followers who believe the same thing. He decided to give the cure away without charge to these children. What can you imagine will come of this? Will the Big Pharm org allow this information to get out to the public? There are always those sprinkled in our world who came to unravel, uplift, discover and fight the foe. It is a dangerous plan but their mission defines them.

I am sure you can think up more social issues that have become a blight on our planet. These were listed as looming and most critical. If as a nation, a world, we decided to say no to all of it, would we reign supreme and have the chance to rebirth our society to wholeness, to correctness? Because, in the direction it is going, how can we see the best outcome? We need that light at the end of the tunnel. No outside force is coming to save us. Can there be truth to the idea that . . . WE are that light?

Thank you for the brave articles from Mind Unleashed website that have stimulated me to formulate this list.

Organic Eggs or Not?

For those of you that learned from Nutrition Response Testing that your body only wanted Organic Eggs, there are some things you ought to know.

There is a vast difference in selection. Your egg box may say organic and free range but what does that mean for different retailers? Commercially processed eggs may stamp that on the carton but are the chickens really FREE RANGE or just let out of their barns and housing for a short while, maybe even minutes a day? And what DO they really put in their feed? Labeling can be deceiving. Often, if not regularly, commercial egg industries will stretch the truth about free range. If you know the local farmers, if you know the history of each brand, you will be receiving the real deal.

Many people buy eggs at low cost. But those people are not realizing the dangers of eating any old egg and how that chicken is fed or housed. The deplorable facts of this can be seen on any documentary film or television or read about in any book that deals with animal humane treatment. What that chicken goes through and eats transfers to the human condition. 

We are in an epidemic of disease coming from all sides of our world and it is transferring via food big time. This post is devoted to bringing this once again to your attention.

Pay the extra dollar. Go the extra mile to feed yourself and your family with the right eggs. Over 175 million people in our country eat eggs. Yet only a small percentage care about what it contains and how it affects them.

CAFO's is the acronym for "confined animal feeding operations". This is referring to the few minutes of the chicken let out in the yard to stretch their worn legs from having to fight for space, being pecked on and trampled on inside. The British government found that 23% of those types of institutions had a very HIGH RATE OF SALMONELLA. The USDA ( US gov't) found that thousands were contaminated with same, although we suspect those figures are way higher. Salmonella is food poisoning that shows symptoms that could last a week. If untreated it has moved itself into an auto immune response and chronic arthritis.

Now that you have decided to pay the extra dollar or two for the right eggs, I will give you our best advisement: go local farmers you know or go buy HAPPY EGGS.
Happy Eggs were the only commercial free range producer to be awarded the Humane Certification from the American Humane Association in February 2015.

... Daily Eco Tips , and they suggest eating only free-range chicken eggs

We have found them in Gelsons, Albertsons, Vons and Ralphs and I hear it expanded to Walmart ( maybe middle west or ?). It is a bright yellow carton. Read about its history, owners of at least 8-9 farms in the Ozarks in Arkansas and Missouri. The "girls" as they call their chickens, roam freely over many acres of rolling land. They are fed vegetarian food. No antibiotics or hormones at all. Free range eggs have 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more Vitamin A, 2 times more Omega -3, 3 times more Vitamin E, 7 times more beta carotene.

Something else to know about Free Range Eggs. They are happy chicks that give you same energy, they peck the minerals in the earth for toughness of their shell. And their shell tells you everything.

I have had a problem with egg shells that were so fragile they broke in my hands. I usually buy from Trader Joes. I like the jumbo's but couldn't understand the shell fragility. When I purchased Happy Eggs, the shell was tough and the egg yolk bright orange, like I used to see in Europe when I lived there.

Eggshells are important. They are porous membranes much like our own skin with 7,500 pores or openings. The outer is covered with a waxy substance called the bloom. Gases and moisture is lost through the pores. But when this happens, carbon dioxide also is lost which speeds up the breakdown of the egg. The commercial egg is washed and depending on the process, wears down the outer covering and if so, they put mineral oil on it. That by the way, is a petroleum. More healthy producers will use a vegetable oil. If you cannot whip that egg white into stiff peaks it is because the mineral oil seeped into the egg! 

Other wet washing techniques called sanitizing, use Chlorine, sodium carbonate, ozone, hydrogen peroxide ( have to wonder if it is the food grade kind) or peracetic acid using vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. Just so you know, chlorine can interact with organic materials that form carcinogenic and mutagenic byproducts. 

Dry brushing is the highly recommended form, should you ask your local farmer.

People who think they are doing their heart good by eating egg whites only need some education.

 Do not consume the egg whites without the egg yolk. Egg whites contain avidin, which binds to biotin. When you cook the egg white, the avidin is no longer an issue. If you consume the both yolk and white, there is no danger of having too much avidin because the yolk supplies enough biotin.

 Eating your eggs scrambled is one of the worst ways to consume them. When eggs are scrambled, the cholesterol inside the yolk becomes oxidized. People who have high cholesterol levels should avoid eating their eggs scrambled. Best to soft boil or fry easy over.

 Dr. Mercola reminds us that the proteins in eggs are converted by gastrointestinal enzymes producing peptides that act as ACE inhibitors! ACE inhibitors are types of medications used to lower blood pressure, so another reminder that eggs are heart healthy!

You can keep eggs out of the refrigerator for up to 10 days and in the refrigerator for up to 40 days. Europeans rarely refrigerate their eggs. But think about THIS. Many commercialized eggs may have been on the shelf upwards of 3 weeks already!! So read the pack date and the sell by date clearly:

Those of you who buy the added Omega 3 eggs are doing yourself an injustice. Those eggs were pumped up because the chicken was fed a poor quality of omega 3 and to add it is folly. Those eggs will perish faster.
And for those who are afraid of eating eggs because of cholesterol, that is a myth!! Many studies have proved otherwise in University testing. Cholesterol is needed for brain and heart. High Cholesterol has even been raised just ingesting medications! To its detriment, those who make their daily diet poor, eating fast food and junk eating at home need a new plan for their life.

Did you know that one egg give 9 grams of high quality protein and 9 essential amino acids? That it has a natural form of Vitamin D 24.5 grams? In a world of eye problems and mac degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma, guess what? Eggs contain lutein and zeaxanthin which are critically important antioxidants in your lens and retina. Then there is Choline, highly important for our nervous system and cardiovascular, one egg gives us 300 micrograms. Pregnant women need this hugely to help form the brain of the unborn child. And there are 18 minerals and vitamins inside one egg.

Dull pale yellow yolks = caged hens
Bright orange yolks = pasture roaming hens
Omega 3 fortified eggs =unhealthy with shorter life span
Poultry and Egg industry = feed their chickens grains
Overcrowded CAFO's = give way to disease and cannibalism and will connect you with pasture foraging hens.

Be safe. Be smart. Pay the extra $$ for your health.

Thanks to Dr. Mercola's research.

Hemp heals

Hemp Seed-Eating Village in China Holds Oldest, Healthiest People in the World

For months we have been pouring organic hemp seeds into our vegie smoothie three times a week!!
I came across this article with increased awareness of the way others in the world benefit from this God given seed. It is over 8000 years old. The most sustainable plant on Earth. It only takes 3-4 months to grow. It is grown without pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. And it is medicine.

Scientists found some of the oldest living citizens in China  as compared to the global average, well over 100 yrs satisfied themselves with plant based foods and exercise and hemp seeds. Their diet consists of less salt, sugar, animal proteins and fat but very high in Omega 3 and 6 which contains essential fatty acids. Without that, the brain would not have nutrition. It provides the oxygen the brain craves and is rich in calcium, iron and fiber.

The name of the village is Bama Yao. It is one of the Centurian hot spots in the world where one can live a long healthy life. The other places known are called "blue zones". Sardinia Italy, Okinawa off Japan, Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.

Omega 6 is important for making certain hormones. By themselves they signal the molecules for inflammatory response. But together with Omega 3's a balance is created. In hemp seed oil the ratio is 3:1. Many of you know Omega 6 is in the foods of the regular American diet so Omega 3 must be added in substantial amounts or inflammation sets in.

Hemp is high in cannabinoids but lacks the THC ( delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol ) THC gives psychoactive effects.

What is of concern is that the federal government has the authority to seize hemp farming in our country because it falls under the Controlled Substances Act which does NOT differentiate between marijuana and hemp. Hemp has a myriad of uses as example:
  • Paper
  • Plastics
  • Clothing
  • Jewelry
  • Rope
  • Building materials
  • Cooking (hemp oil)
  • Food (it won’t get you high)
  • Skin care products
  • Animal and bird feed
  • Animal bedding
  • Water and soil purification
  • Weed control
  • Clean fuel

North Dakota, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Oregon, California, Montana, West Virginia, and Vermont  have all passed legislation to make the cultivation of industrial hemp legal. But in an effort to avoid conflict with the feds, they are waiting for the DEA’s permission. They are waiting, and waiting.

Fortunately, legislators in Washington, D.C. are taking matters into their own hands. Senate Bill 359 and House Bill 525 (Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2013) is making its way through bipartisan halls and seeks to establish that “marijuana” as listed in the Controlled Substances Act, does not include industrial hemp. With the passage of this law, we could once again stand to reap the rewards of this remarkable plant.
