Healthy Living

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Those of you who have raised children know the attraction of TV commercials. When our son was small he saw these TV ads for different toys. He begged and begged to get them only to find they didn’t work the way they did on TV. Sometimes the toy was broken before his mother got out of the store – so we’re paying for a broken toy that was no good in the first place.
No hasten on to your adult life. What kind of ads do you see for your every ache and pain? The ad tells you that you know more than your doctor so insist on getting this new prescription. Ads aren’t cheap! How many pills does the pharmaceutical company need to sell to pay for that ad. And then you find out it’s dangers are more severe than your illness.

You can be one of those people who live a healthy life it you trust your gut. But to do that you need to feed your gut “real” food – not processed food that imitates life.

My mantra is: garbage in garbage out! Take control of your life.

Specialty Drugs

Friday, January 30th, 2015

The challenges associated with specialty drugs came into focus in 2013 when Sovaldi, a medication that’s been shown to cure about 90 percent of common cases of hepatitis C. Hepatitis C if left untreated could lead to liver damage, cirrhosis, liver cancer and even death. A 12-week supply only costs $84,000. (That’s more than the average income in the U.S.) An estimated 3.2 million Americans are infected, 75 percent are boomers.

This is only the beginning of the costs for health care.

Now suppose, and this is only a suggestion, that you eat “real” food. That is food not filled with drugs and genetically modified. This is food where the animal has plenty of grass and open range, where they are not cooped up and live in their own excrement, so heavy they cannot walk. Eat food which has not been sprayed with 7 different kinds of poisons to control bugs.

Some chemical companies tell us that we cannot live without them – as they continue to kill us.

People it goes back to the gut. Garbage in garbage out. Wake up and smell the roses – before they too are to poisonous to enjoy.

We have a choice – and more people today are taking that right choice.

Major Advance in Slowing Aging

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Last year, 2014, I was hardly able to breathe. Western medicine told me I was healthy. So I had to go to treatments with acuscope and myopulse. These treatments took the inflammation out of my body, opened my cells and let me breathe again. Now I feel healthier than I have in years. But the insurance companies don’t want to pay for treatments that work without the aid of the pharmaceutical companies.

I am learning that as we age, or mature, our cells lose the ability to purge themselves of accumulated junk, called “cellular junk”. This induces low levels of inflammation. My body was filled with inflammation and my cells closed us so they hardly allowed nutrients into the cell and cleanse toxins out of these same cells. With the work of the acuscope. which used micro levels of electrical pulses, they cleaned out my cells and opened them up so I could get oxygen which is delivered by the blood.

AMPK, which stands for adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase, is an enzyme that plays a critical role in cellular homeostasis. AMPK works as a master switch to regulate cells functions such as uptake of glucose, burning of fats, and formation of new mitochondria.

AMPK stimulates energy metabolism by telling cells to burn glucose and fatty acids. This is one way that AMPK lowers blood glucose and reduces storage of body fat. (I’m just now beginning with a supplement with AMPK so I’ll tell you later how it worked for me.)

Are We Killing Ourselves?

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

As we let the Food and Drug Administration tell doctors how they can treat their patients; and as insurance companies tell doctors which drugs to prescribe; and how the pharmaceutical companies advertise new drugs (which aren’t always better than the old) how can we not keep killing ourselves?

Today we have companies trying to patent food which has been grown without the help of pharmaceutical companies for centuries and corrupt politicians allowing them to do it, how can we not be guilty of killing ourselves?
Oh, we let the pharmaceutical companies kill us slowly so that they can get repeat business on their new drugs but they don’t try to cure us as they tell us they are.

Big money has kept many life-giving ways of ever reaching the market. And if it does they sue the person who is saving lives.

All this said – you can help change this.

Health begins in the gut. The old computer saying is true for food as well: Garbage in-garbage out.

Now you take it from here.
