Do we actually live in the nation described on this sign, or is it just a negative point of view put out by some unhappy pessimist? From the beginning of time, Good and Evil has existed and people have always … Continue reading

MED BEDS ARE ALMOST HERE!

Wonder about them no more– CHECK THIS OUT!!

https://www.americaoutloud.com/the-quantum-healing…/

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on MED BEDS ARE ALMOST HERE!

IT’S A NEW YEAR! LET’S KEEP HEALTHY!!

This past year much has happened and sadly, not for the better. I’m so very glad my doctors have told me I have a very strong immune system because of how I eat and supplement. I’m so glad I’ve been told truth about the various flu bugs and vitamins.

I am sad to see and know that some- even family members- do not accept this, but listen to the false information put out by the main-stream-media. I am sad that many, even some ‘Doctors’ have been paid to spread false information. It makes me very sad to learn that so many have taken the jab that is meant to reduce world population, thinking it is a good vaccine, and then to be told they died even though they had been healthy before the jab.

MASKS AND MANDATES ARE NOT GOOD. A mask worn most of the time will slowly reduce the ability of your immune system to work well. Mandates are not laws, but are used to control you and hopefully force you to get that poison jab so you will most likely die within 2 years.

MY DEAR FAMILY AND FRIENDS– PLEASE eat chemical-free as much as possible and take live vitamins!! If you begin to feel like a bug is after you, find a doctor who will give you Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin. I know these are good and understand there are some other ones that will also cure the flu.

I also understand Med-Beds will soon be available to the public, so perhaps those who’ve gotten the jab and are still alive, can go and be healed, but that is still being debated– still worth a try, isn’t it?

May GOD hold you all in His healing hand and may each of you do well in the year ahead.

"Speakers Corner, the Diamond in our Free Speech crown ...

LET’S TALK FLU- VIRUS- COVID-19.

We are hearing so very much about the covid-19 virus and the immunizations people want to get for it, but shouldn’t we be hearing more about how to avoid getting it?

I’ve been reading and listening to everything– and praying God will show us how we should live and handle this situation. I am not in any way an official you will hear about who ‘knows all’.

Certainly you are all free to make your own choice in this matter, so what I want to share is simply what I personally believe and what I am doing, based on everything I’ve read, heard, and learned.

I understand this is a bad virus. It kills mostly those who have a weak immune system. It spreads much like colds and flu. Because it is a flu, it should be treated as such. I also understand from a number of sources, that the best thing you can do when you first get a cold or flu, is get some Hydroxychloroquine- it treats much more than colds and flu and works fast. Then get some live vitamins and eat chemical-free as much as possible. I keep my immune system strong, so I never get a flu shot. I don’t worry when I’m around those who aren’t well. I feel it is their choice– yes, I share with them as much as possible, but some don’t accept it. That is their own personal choice to make.

At this point in time, I believe everyone should not be wearing masks. I believe we should all not be made to stand or sit many feet apart, or have our groups be limited in number. I believe ALL businesses should be open and ALL students and teachers should be in school, keeping normal days and hours. I believe those who are sick should stay home.

In the early 90’s, we discovered live vitamins- (a number of companies sell them) we began taking them and haven’t been sick with colds or flu since– amazing because we used to get colds and flu every year- always when we were around anyone who had those germs and other times as well- we learned the vitamins we took were dead and that is why they didn’t work for us. So– if you take vitamins and get a cold or flu, yours are dead and you need to change your brand. I do have a problem in my neck- bad balance, so I’m on a walker, but three doctors have checked me out and tell me I’m doing well and have a strong immune system– just keep taking those vitamins and eat chemical-free as much as possible and you’ll be just fine, they tell me.

That is what I do and believe you should do too. Live vitamins are very important and keep us well in many ways– no diabetes, cancer, or other bad things we don’t want. Sometime back a doctor was checking me out and told me that if everyone ate and supplemented like I do, hospitals would have very few people in them and cancer would be very rare indeed. Unfortunately that is not what Big Pharma and many in the Medical Field want. They crave the money that keeping people sick brings in– SAD, ISN’T IT? To see what hubby and I take to keep flu bugs away, go here.. https://talknshare.wordpress.com/supplements/

Frontline doctors prescribe ivermectin to treat these flu bugs too.

IT IS BEING PROVEN– NOT JUST AN IDEA I’VE HAD– Your best chance for survival if you’ve gotten the jab, is to keep a very strong immune system and get Hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin. May God keep and guide you on this journey and through the storms of life.

Dr. Yeadon recently spoke at the “Stop the Shot” conference and discussed why all women of child-bearing age should reject the experimental jabs.

Watch some of the previous warnings from the former Pfizer VP:

MORE NEWS– We’ve been hearing from some we trust, that wearing a mask all the time is not good– it weakens the immune system and makes you more likely to be sick– definitely food for thought…

What Is Chemical-Free Keto?

Image result for wine glass imagesRelated image    Image result for keto dessert images

Delicious, because it is real food!!

There are so many different ideas on how people who care about their health should eat that it can- and sometimes does- cause problems.

Let’s go back to the beginning when God created our world. On the 3rd day He created all plants and trees that people and animals would need for food– and that was good, very good. Later He said we could eat meat and drink wine, also. Bread was always important and seemed to be the main part of the meal and was so important that Jesus broke a loaf and shared it, saying we should have some bread (His body) and wine (His blood) often in remembering Him. 

So- what has changed, and why??

Over time big business wanted more money. Before 1870 there was only stone ground wheat. By 1880 all stones had been replaced with iron, steel, or porcelain rollers throughout Europe and America. It marked the beginning of the industrial revolution of our food.

Big business has always wanted to please the most people with foods that cost them the least and bring in the most money. So, over time things were changed.

Chemical-free means the way God made it, without the poisons people spray and otherwise add to it, causing some to be in those foods we eat. Also Doctors have confirmed that our processed flours and sugars are considered chemicals because their properties are changed through processing.

Keto is the lowering of carbs to a very low level that your body does well with. I’ve written several articles to help you understand it better… check some of them out here–

https://talknshare.wordpress.com/2018/06/30/the-keto-diet-simplified/                                                                            https://talknshare.wordpress.com/2018/04/04/is-chemical-free-and-keto-eating-the-same-thing/

So, folks– eating chemical-free keto is simply eating the natural foods we get through Mother Nature and keeping the carbs low- usually below 60.

You will discover the yummy, healthy chemical-free keto way I eat, here…  EAT HEALTHY!

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!

Bad Food From China??

Scientists created ‘super pigs’ resistant to deadly infection The 4 Countries That Produce the Most Food | Investopedia How an ancient pope helped make chickens fat | Science | AAAS

Some time back I kept an article I thought could be important and I might want to share with you. NOW IS THE TIME!!! I will not only share this one, I will include some more recent ones… seems China is not the great country many have come to believe it is. I once worked in a Chinese Restaurant– loved it and the Chinese people I worked for. Soooo- why this article?? Read on… 

China is the most prolific producer of an impressive list of foods: rice, wheat, potatoes, lettuce, onions, cabbage, green beans, broccoli, eggplant, spinach, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkins, pears, grapes, apples, peaches, plums, watermelons, sheep milk, chicken, pork, sheep, goat, peanuts, eggs, fish and honey.

WHAT WE ARE EXPOSED TO WITH REGARD TO OUR FOOD.

Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders.  The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here.  This includes labels: of Morrell, Eckrich, Krakus, Cudahy, Premium Hams, Cook’s, Gwaltney. The same is true with chickens under these labels.  They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be on the  label is that they WERE RAISED IN THE USA .  Not that they were processed in China.  Our great FDA at work.  The chickens under these labels will all be processed and most sold to fast food restaurants, schools and supermarkets.  The China slaughter and processing requirements are, for the most part, unregulated and far inferior to requirements of the U.S.A.

We recently learned that Starkist Tuna is now owned by Korea and is in conflict with the U.S. concerning quality, safety, and records keeping, which Korea refuses to produce.

I read several articles on Google about this, and  even one that was defending the eating of tilapia fish- said to avoid the fish that came from China. Also, a person had just returned home from buying Albertson’s 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen tilapia for the price of one.  Sure enough, on the top of the bags it read “farm raised”, and on the bottom, in small  print, it said: “China”.

Recently, on TV, a Food inspector said he had lived overseas and he had seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in. It is enough to make you throw-up. Some foreign workers have to wear masks as they work in these places because the food is so rotten and filthy, it makes them want to throw up. Many of their fish on Fish Farms are  fed raw sewage daily. He said he has seen so much filth throughout their food growing and processing that he would “never” eat any of it. They raise this filth, put some food coloring and some flavorings on it, then they ship it to the USA & Canada for YOU to consume and feed to YOUR families. They have no Food & Safety Inspectors. They ship it to you to buy and poison your families and friends.

IMPORTED FOOD WE EAT IS JUNK:

Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of European’s. Best Arctic Gardens are okay. So is Birdseye.

Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada, the other stuff is grown in peoples dung (even worse than chicken poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world;  U.S. is next.

Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in huge containers from China and packaged here.

Cold-FX is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. Doesn’t work anyway; it is a big scam.

If the country of origin on a product is not clearly marked, beware. If the product is produce, ask an employee.

Watch out for packages which state “prepared for,”  “packed by” or “imported by” or “distributed by.” We advocate mandatory labeling, especially the produce.

The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store.

Go to the local farmers’ markets in season for your  produce and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year.

Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom. It’s important for all of us.

The above facts indicate how is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U.S. or Canada.

PLEASE NOTE–THE “OUR FAMILY” BRAND OF MANDARIN ORANGES  SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN ‘FROM CHINA’. SO, FOR A FEW MORE CENTS, BUY THE LIBERTY BRAND. GOLD BRAND OR DOLE ARE FROM CALIFORNIA.

Beware, Costco sells canned peaches and pears in a plastic jar that come from China.

ALL “HIGH LINER” AND MOST OTHER FROZEN FISH PRODUCTS COME FROM CHINA OR INDONESIA. THE PACKAGE MAY SAY “PACIFIC SALMON” ON THE FRONT, BUT LOOK FOR THE SMALL PRINT. MOST OF THESE PRODUCTS COME FROM FISH FARMS IN THE ORIENT WHERE THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS ON WHAT IS FED TO THESE FISH .

Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish  feed on chicken dung.

If you search the Internet about what  the Chinese feed their fish, you’ll be alarmed; e.g, growth hormones, expired antibiotic from humans. Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam, China, Philippines .

Check this out personally. Steinfeld’s Pickles are produced in India – just as bad!

Another example is canned mushrooms. No-Name brand comes from Indonesia.

Also check those little fruit cups.  They used to be made in Canada, in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China.  Most sold in Aldi stores .

While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys, and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands! Yet, 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended.

Why do we need the government to suspend trading  privileges?    THIS IS A DO IT YOURSELF PROJECT.

Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy and if it says ‘Made in China’ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong ),  simply choose another product or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.

THINK ABOUT THIS:

If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor… fast! The downside? Some Canadian/American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.

Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.

Share with your friends.  Start reading labels more closely and buy something else even if it cost a few cents more…

20 Foods Imported From China That Are Raising Some Serious …

  • Cod: Believe it or not, this common fish is among the absolute worst foods to get from China. Thousands are cramped in small areas teeming with sewage and garbage, making them highly toxic.
  • Eggs: If you get eggs that were imported from China, you might want to think twice before scrambling them up. Factories there use calcium carbonate and paraffin in their eggs, which can cause serious food poisoning.
  • Lamb: In 2013, police arrested 900 people in China because they were pawning off rat meat as lamb, and that’s disgusting. Officers seized about 20,000 pounds of spoiled rat meat, as well!
  • Wine: If you consider yourself a wine connoisseur, you’ll probably want to avoid wine that was “Made in China”. Sure, you’ll find your standard grapes, but you’ll also consume sugar, dyes, and artificial flavors.

The Cold And Flu Season Is Underway- Afraid Of Ebola, Coronavirus Or Other Flu’s?

FD eat daily

HERE’S THE LATEST ON THE CORONAVIRUS!!! THANK YOU, DOCTORS!!!

https://www.facebook.com/messenger_media? thread_id=1294371966&attachment_id=404190647291450&message_id= mid.%24cAABa83kdo0F8R8uV6F2FoZFolHNy

Has Ebola, Coronavirus or other flu bugs got you or those you know and love worried? We would like to remind everyone that in order to be and stay healthy, our bodies need a strong IMMUNE system. That is accomplished through a variety of good fresh sun-ripened fruits and vegetables eaten daily. If enough of those are not available to you, then a good supplement is in order. A number of companies provide these, so if you sometimes get a cold or flu, then change the brand of vitamins you take!! Let’s all stay well year around!

We are what we eat!

Are you eating for good health and wellness, or do you eat primarily for what tastes good at the time, especially if it is quick and easy at a fast food place? When eating at home are your foods truly healthy ones? Check out our EAT HEALTHY! page!

For years we’ve not gotten colds, flu, diabetes, cancer, etc., and it’s because we discovered eating sun-ripened fruits and vegetables is God’s plan through Mother Nature for keeping us healthy. Yes, we must have doctors sometimes and we do need some drugs- especially when having surgery, but again, it is God who provides the plants man gets drugs from and the knowledge Doctors need for surgery or whatever else is needed.

Not long ago I had someone in the medical field, (they should know better, but many haven’t studied nutrition enough to have the knowledge they should possess), tell me that she knew people could eat a healthy diet and still get cancer, because she knew someone who ate very healthy all the time and that person got cancer. It was not the time or place, so I could not share with her the information she is missing– the fact is, it has been proven fruits and vegetables get those health-giving properties during the sun-ripening process and if they are picked green, they cannot keep us healthy. A family could eat a very healthy diet all the time, which would include fresh fruit and vegetables every day and they not only could, they would, get colds, flu– yes, even cancer, if those foods were picked green, before being sun-ripened. For that reason, sun-ripened fruits and veggies are available from various companies as a supplement and it is possible to get them included in your vitamin tablet or capsule. So– if you sometimes get a cold or flu, you will no doubt want to find a company to provide these to you.

It doesn’t matter where you get yours, but I do recommend Purity Products because you can get great prices and they even make samples available so you can try things you have an interest in. You will find things we recommend on our Supplements?! page in this blog.

Some have told me they have serious doubts and also feel they can’t afford to include these supplements in their diet, because they have so many family members that they couldn’t afford the cost. They’d rather take their chances, then see a doctor if they get sick, because they have Insurance.

I HAVE AN IDEA!!!

If you have doubts or are simply too stretched for money– do this EXPERIMENT–

Choose ONE member of your family- perhaps the one bringing in the most money for living expenses– perhaps a child who seems to always get every cold and flu other kids bring to school– just ONE member of your household. Get the Purity product that has those important sun-ripened fruits and veggies (Perfect Multi Super Greens or Perfect Multi Essentials), and give it to that person every day. You will no doubt be delighted to discover the great health that person begins to enjoy- and you will love the fact that germs from sick people they are around doesn’t affect them.  It won’t take long for you to prove the things I’ve shared with you here really do work– then you can make your own choices from there.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!

What Is Natural Flavor? Is It Actually Artificial?

Related image

www.organics.org

When checking ingredient labels, we’ve begun seeing ‘natural flavor’ listed in some of them. This has puzzled us because the food ingredients all have whatever flavor that ingredient is– so we have wondered why more flavoring is needed and why the company doesn’t say what it is- vanilla- carrot- raisin- salt? Just what is in this that the company wants to hide from us by saying ‘natural flavor’ and leaving many to believe it is no doubt good because it is something natural? After giving this some thought, we decided to do some research on this mysterious ingredient to see and share with you just what it is… and what we discovered surprised us!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines natural flavor as:

“…The essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

Here is more…

11 Disgusting “Natural” Ingredients in Your Food CHECK THIS OUT!!

WOW! It isn’t just one or two things? It could be almost anything!! Now we find it most interesting to see that whatever it is, it has been highly processed, and that tells us it is no longer natural, but has been turned into a chemical, and is something we don’t want in our food. WHY do companies do this? WHY?? It may remain a mystery for a long time, but in the end we hope they will stop this deceitful practice and just tell us what the ingredient is that they are putting in so we can decide if we want it or not.

There Are Exceptions To Every Rule…

                   

You may see how I prefer to eat and supplement on this page. However, to be fair to everyone, I do try a variety of things and recommend those I feel are good in taste as well as nutrition. Therefore, when this came to my attention I ordered some…

I have the samples now. The taste is just fine and they are VERY filling- that is really a great thing. If you would like to check them out, this is their website.

Is this an exception to everything I share on my EAT HEALTHY! page and if so, WHY?? The instructions call for this to be very cold- like a milkshake, but this is winter here now– think I’ll experiment- make it hot- I’ll let you know how it comes out… YUCK! I made it with 2 cups of hot coffee, some coconut oil and a packet of their COOKIES & CREAM– was it the vitamins they put into it? I went to the frig, added 2 cups of Almond/Coconut milk from SILK, along with some stevia– Ahhh- much better! Won’t be making it hot again, but having it room temp or slightly cool will be just fine– very filling, so I still have a half blender full for later! YUM! After checking it out, I believe it can be not just used as directed, but used as a main ingredient in smoothies.

Yes, this seems to be a truly great thing for very busy people, those who don’t take vitamins and those who don’t mind having sucrose in some of the flavors, but now that I’ve tried this, I still prefer the way I eat and drink, taking the vitamins my doctor says I should have and enjoying the  great variety of foods and, yes- bars– have you tried a good fats bar yet? I have and ‘love good fats’ are indeed ‘ridiculously delicious’. Some of their ingredients are questionable though, so since I don’t want to ‘kill my Keto’, I won’t order more.

THE BOTTOM LINE– Experiment as much and as often as you like– or just follow my EAT HEALTHY! page since I’ve already done a lot of that!

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!

ERYTHRITOL- Chemical Or Natural? Good Or Bad?

 

Image result for erythritol imagesWe have discovered that a great many people, in trying to lose weight, have begun to use this by the spoon or cupful because it can replace sugar and has almost NO CALORIES OR CARBS! The question then becomes– is there a downside? For many the answer is NO, but for many others the answer is YES.

When I told someone this is a chemical so not something I wanted to eat, the person rolled their eyes as they informed me it comes from some plants and is very natural. Well folks, sugar also comes from a plant and is very natural, so what’s the scoop here? 

Sugar is produced from sugar cane and erythritol occurs naturally in pears, watermelon and grapes. These foods are given to us from Mother Nature and are just fine for us to consume in their natural state. The problem occurs when they are processed, removing natural nutrients and turning them into something that is unnatural and actually toxic to some people. The healthy food industry considers these altered foods to be chemicals- therefore I avoid them, but as with everything else it is always your choice. We decided to ask some Doctors we trust on this subject.

Dr. Axe has an excellent article that I do recommend… https://draxe.com/erythritol/

In it he states that it naturally occurs in some fruits and fermented foods, but the variety being added to food and beverages today is typically man-made from GMO cornstarch, resulting in an ultra-processed food — very far from a natural sweetening agent. It’s one of those “invisible GMO ingredients.”

Next we went to Dr. Mercola, to see what he had to say and found this in his article… Due to the potential dangers of using sugar alcohols, as well as artificial sweeteners, it is strongly recommend that you avoid both products and use natural, healthy substitutes instead.

We love both of these Doctors and have, over the years, benefited from their counsel.

We have also been impressed by Janet Renee, a clinical dietitian with a special interest in weight management, sports dietetics, medical nutrition therapy and diet trends. You may find the following article to be of interest. The Benefits and Risks of Erythritol as a Sweetener

BY  JANET RENEE, MS, RD
The Benefits and Risks of Erythritol as a Sweetener

SO WHAT ABOUT MONK FRUIT?

Image result for monk fruit clip art   Image result for monk fruit clip art

Monk fruit extract, also known as luo han guo, is native to the forests of southern China. The fruit itself looks like a melon but is actually a gourd. Monk fruit grows on vines and is about the size of a lemon. Hundreds of years ago, Buddhist monks cultivated monk fruit for medicinal purposes. Since monk fruit sweetener has ZERO CALORIES OR CARBS, it will not raise blood sugar levels. The GOOD NEWS here is it is treated much like the stevia plant and appears to not have been turned into a chemical. Monk fruit sweetener is created by removing the seeds and skin of the fruit, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice. The fruit extract, or juice, is around 150-200 times sweeter than sugar and contains zero calories per serving – meaning a very small amount provides a lot of sweetness. I see that it can be purchased and used just as you would any granulated or powered sugar. CHEERS!

The bottom line… it may be a good idea to avoid Erythritol and follow our EAT HEALTHY! page.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!

Are Microwaves REALLY Bad For Our Health, OR Is This Just A Scare Story?

Microwaves: Are microwave ovens bad for your health?

Microwave ovens are a great time saver in the kitchen. In just a few minutes, we can heat up our dinner, even make a bowl of porridge for breakfast or make popcorn for a snack.

However, the controversy over the safety of microwaves has been growing for years. Some people believe that microwaved food is not quite the same as food cooked with a conventional heating source.

Readers write in with their concerns about microwaves

And that’s a concern for an HSI member named Deloris who starts off an email titled ‘Microwave Ovens’ with a reference to an article she read by US natural medical physician, Dr. Joseph Mercola. Deloris writes: ‘I’ve been using one [a microwave] for over 25 years, as I imagine many folks have. If he’s [Dr. Mercola] right then its only my vitamins and supplements that have kept me alive as I’ve lost a lot of nutrition in reheated food, not to mention possibility of getting cancer. Any comments on this subject?’

There are so many it is a question of where to start. Given how common microwave usage is, Dr.Mercola’s article is just one of several he and others have written about microwaves, and the information usually discussed can be generally summed up with this comment from US HSI Panellist Dr Allan Spreen:

‘What studies exist are all bad news for microwaving they universally describe some type of damage. One study showed breakdown of vitamin B-12 to inactive degradation products in microwaved foods. There’s also a problem with release of potentially toxic molecules into the food from packaging designed to help brown food during microwaving. This includes items such as pizza, French fries, waffles, popcorn and breaded fish.’

These unsettling details about microwaves generally go from bad to worse.

Argument #1: Microwaves cause a significant loss of nutrients in food.

Microwaves are thought to destroy and deform food molecules. In fact, one study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture found that broccoli ‘zapped’ in the microwave with a little water lost up to 97 percent of the beneficial antioxidant chemicals it contains. By comparison, steamed broccoli lost 11 percent or fewer of its antioxidants.

Other research has found that microwaves destroy the nutritional value of protein in meat.

Besides the loss of nutrients, microwaving forms new compounds (radiolytic compounds) that are unknown to humans and nature. Its not yet known exactly what these compounds do in the human body.

Instead of cooking your vegetables in the microwave, why not steam them instead. It would appear that steaming is the best way to avoid losing valuable nutrients.

Argument #2: Microwaves leak.

In the book, Health Effects of Microwave Radiation Microwave Ovens by Dr. Lita Lee, she states that every microwave oven leaks electromagnetic radiation, harms food, and converts substances cooked in it to dangerous toxic and carcinogenic products.

There has been contradictory research linked to EMFs (electromagnetic fields) produced by appliances like microwave ovens.

Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the US School of Public Health, State University of New York believes it is likely that up to 30% of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns ‘There is reason for concern’ and advises prudent avoidance.

EMFs can be measured with an instrument called a Gauss meter. In fact, here is what one reader has to say when he used a Gauss meter to test microwaves: Measuring with a Gauss meter, every microwave I tested leaked, and was detectable up to six feet away.

So just to be on the safe side, it is best to stand back from your microwave when its running.

 Alternatives to microwave ovens–

Unfortunately, there has not been an abundance of research done on the subject of microwaves. But if you are concerned about using your microwave:

*Get rid of it. That way you wont be tempted to use it.
*Try eating a lot of your food, like vegetables, raw. Ideally, at least one-third of the food in your diet should be raw, since this is the form that will give you the maximum amount of nutrients.
*If you do want to cook some food or heat up leftovers, use your oven or stove. 

Jeannie here– Read this again if you have children, and please realize there is more to good health than WHAT we eat– how it is prepared is VERY important for us all.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!

GMO vs Hybrid: What’s the Difference?

Health News Magazine GMOvs

This magazine has many great articles in it and you may check it out by clicking Paul & Ann Malkmus below. A great deal is being written about GMOs and we can’t stress enough how important this could be to you and your family.

Written by: Paul & Ann Malkmus

So what’s better: hybridized foods or genetically modified organism (GMO) foods?

Sometimes the best choice is “none of the above!” However, there are some significant differences.

While hybrids are created by “naturally” crossbreeding similar species to achieve desired traits, GM technology involves selecting genes from any living thing (similar or not) to force the creation of DNA that would never be found in nature.

In the plant kingdom, nearly all attempts to hybridize are imperfect, but are relatively harmless. In fact, many of the commercially available fruits and vegetables you buy are hybrids.

GMO foods, on the other hand, result when hybridization is taken to the genetic level — the concept is a noble one but ill-conceived.

For example, GMO foods were supposed to create “superfoods” that were weed resistant and would lead to an endless food supply. What we now have instead is weeds that can’t be killed, requiring a return to more conventional, time-consuming methods of weed control.

Getting away from these methods was the whole point of adopting GMO technology, which now appears all for naught.

Weed resistance is not the only reason plants are being genetically modified. Bacteria resistance, produce size, and other commercially attractive traits are in the works.

But no one knows if these foods are safe. The only way to tell is to observe the health of those persons who consume GM foods over the long-term.

Care to be a guinea pig? Neither do we!

So, how do you avoid GMO foods? For now, buy organic or foods labeled “non-GMO”.

When you purchase non-GMO foods, you’re voting against GMOs with your purchasing power — making GMOs unprofitable is the only way to stop them from overtaking the entire food supply.

Could GMOs really take over? Yes, here’s how…

If you think about it, open fields of GMO plants have to be pollinated to grow, just like any other plant.

And if cross-pollination with non-GMO plants happens, whether through wind, insects, or other uncontrollable forces, fields of organic produce near GMO fields could be contaminated with GMO pollen — making truly organic foods extinct.

So, whenever possible, choose foods labeled non-GM or non-GMO.

Jeannie here– There is little we can add to this advice, but as much as possible, we do eat true organic and nothing GMO. We have found that Mother Nature gives us all we need to be truly healthy and we do enjoy an awesome chemical-free diet- yummy and healthy, just the way God intended. Wonder what I mean by this? Check out our EAT HEALTHY! page.

The Keto Diet Simplified

 

Supplements I Take on a Keto Diet (Prevent dry eyes, hair loss, headaches etc.) | Mouthwatering ...

I was going to title this article ‘Keto Made Easy’, but when I went for images to go with this awesome title– WOW!!! There are books with that name, guides with that name, recipes– you name it and someone is already using that title to talk about something they believe in and want you to know! There is MUCH information and many suggestions out there. WHY??? Well folks, I believe it is because this awesome way of eating for our good health is working for many and has hurt no one. Yes, there are some who put it down, but none who have proven it is in any way harmful, so if someone tells you it is bad for you, do ask them to give you a copy of the study that proves it.

In checking out information on Keto, we discovered not only is there mountains of info– much of it is different! There are companies and people who want to profit from it, so they offer things for you to buy… just Google it and you will be amazed!

THE TRUTH IS– YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY ANYTHING TO BEGIN EATING A HEALTHY KETO DIET AND BENEFIT BY IT!!! 

I recently had occasion one Saturday to visit a Clinic for a ‘bug’ that was attacking me. I thought perhaps my vitamins were no longer working, so I was concerned. Both this doctor and the nurse checked me over and talked with me about the foods I eat. This is the first time I can recall having a medical doctor discuss foods and the fact they consider flour and sugar to be chemicals because their properties are changed through processing, and I know it is the first time a doctor has told me face to face that I should eat keto because it would help me the most. When my visit was over and I had been assured my vitamins were doing their job- my immune system was very strong and fighting hard for me, the last thing this doctor said was– ‘keep taking your live vitamins, eat a chemical-free keto diet, and you’ll be just fine– if not then you will need to come back.’ Well folks, I am just fine now- my chest doesn’t hurt and that nasty cough is gone!

SO, FOLKS… just how simple is it and why don’t you have to buy anything special? The first thing you need to do is begin eating a chemical-free diet as much as possible and as quickly as you can. Begin shopping in the organic section and stop buying highly processed foods that are loaded with flour and sugars. It is much easier than you might think, just read through my EAT HEALTHY! page if you need some guidance with this.                                                        Image result for chemical-free food images

You can go chemical-free very quickly and without the side effects many say you must suffer when first beginning a keto way of eating, because your body won’t care what brand of bread, butter, dairy, cookies, pasta, chocolate or sweetener you have just as long as it tastes good, is filling, and eliminates your hunger. As soon as  you are eating chemical-free, you may begin to lower your carbs to the recommended 20 per day or less. That means you will stop buying high carb foods even though they are good natural healthy chemical-free foods. Eating Keto is easy- a lot of natural saturated fat, some protein and VERY FEW CARBS. You will be delighted to discover there are NO CARBS in your fats, NO CARBS in most meats, VERY FEW CARBS in cheeses and only half a carb in an egg, so have two, it only adds ONE CARB!

I have done other articles on this that you might find interesting and helpful, and know you will surely be a little surprised and very pleased at how easy it is to switch from what you currently eat to chemical-free keto. 

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!!

Is Coconut Oil REALLY A Healthy Oil?

Image result for coconut oil imagesImage result for coconut oil images

For those of you who still believe ALL fats are bad, consider this message from Dr. Mercola, as he discusses the truth about the many health benefits of coconut oil and why it is better than vegetable oil or any other cooking oil.

Another great source for discovery and learning truth– 

NaturalON – Natural Health News and Discoverieshas published this great article–

The 9 Best Oils For Cooking And A List Of The Worst Oils You Could Use.

This is a truly great article we believe you will find interesting… as a teaser we’ll just share the first one with you here.

1.  Coconut Oil.

The clear winner in this contest is coconut oil. With more than 90 percent of its fatty acids being saturated fats, this makes coconut oil super heat resistant. Although this oil is semi-solid at average room temperatures, it turns liquid at the slightest touch. Coconut oil can literally sit for years in a sealed container and never go rancid.

This oil also has incredibly powerful health benefits. It is rich in lauric acid, which can help to kill bacteria, various types of pathogens, and can lower cholesterol levels in the body. Coconut oil also temporarily raises the body’s metabolism, which can help you to lose weight, especially around your middle. Many people also report that coconut oil makes them feel fuller for longer periods of time, so they eat less at other meals.

To get the most health benefits possible, always choose virgin coconut oil. It tastes great, smells great, can be used in the kitchen and bath (it’s perfect for skin, teeth, and hair as well) and is overflowing with healthy compounds that will benefit everyone in your family.

The 9 Worst Oils You Could Use.

Unfortunately, most of the oils on the market today are industrial seed, GMO, highly processed vegetable oils. These oils are downright dangerous in that they are overloaded with omega-6 fatty acids, which the body does need, but not in these huge amounts.

One thing your body does not need is GMO products and about 90 percent of the corn and soybean grown today and used in cooking oils are GMO. Canola oil is now pure GMO and is not only one of the worst kinds of oils you can consume, but it goes rancid faster than any other oil.

Numerous studies show that these oils lead to serious diseases including heart disease, stroke, metabolic diseases, and cancer. One study showed that the vegetable oils on the following list had between 0.56 and 4.2 percent trans-fats, which are highly toxic to the body and are truly dangerous.

The following list includes oils you should avoid at all costs, no matter how inexpensive they are, and no matter what the claim on the label:

  • Safflower oil
  • Soybean oil
  • Rice bran oil
  • Corn oil
  • Sesame oil
  • Cottonseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Canola oil
  • Rapeseed oil

Read food labels carefully. If any of the above oils are listed, make another choice.

WHAT Is Keto Flu- Can We Prevent It From Happening?

Image result for keto flu images

Keto flu is a real thing, and often happens when you drastically and suddenly remove carbs from your diet. Also known as the ‘carb flu,’ the keto flu is a natural reaction (almost like a feeling of withdrawal) your body undergoes when switching from burning glucose (sugar) as energy to burning fat instead… and YES! we believe you can certainly avoid this unpleasant thing from happening!

We believe that our bodies are usually smart enough to know what they need. When we take in fake and artificial ‘foods’, if our body doesn’t recognize the ingredients and has no use for them, they are often stored in fat cells in order to keep us safe. We also believe that unless a team of Doctors inform you that you will die within a month unless you immediately start and maintain a keto diet, that you should be kind to your body- treat it well and be gentle, making important changes that will help it, but at a pace that is comfortable for both you and your body.

IF YOU HAVE A FAMILY, it is very possible that everyone’s body is different to the point that they don’t all require the same strict diet as you or other family members. For this reason, let’s start with everyone beginning to eat a chemical-free diet- natural, simple, delicious- something EVERYONE, even baby, can enjoy and also benefit from! As you shop for foods, get your fresh produce from the organic section and make sure your dairy is real and high fat. At this point, please read my EAT HEALTHY! page. That page will give you many options for eating right for your own body and direct you to other helpful pages as well.

As your family begins to eat chemical-free and take in good healthy fats, it may be that some can enjoy the many great foods provided us through Mother Nature, some may wish to learn and follow a Paleo diet or even a combination of Paleo and Keto, (we recommend this page for further information), while others may need to eat a variety low carb diet (usually between 50-150 carbs a day). Then there are people like myself who, for reasons we don’t fully understand, need a keto diet of almost zero to only about 40-50 carbs a day. I know this will take some time and hopefully this special diet will allow my body to heal itself to the point that I can once more eat all the great foods God has blessed us with.

THE BOTTOM LINE… No need to shock your body by switching over to KETO overnight!

1st- Switch to chemical-free eating as quickly as possible. Your body won’t object to having a different brand of bread and cookies- those without chemicals, nor will it object to any chemical-free sweeteners you give it.

2nd- As soon as you’re eating a chemical-free diet, you may begin to lower your carb intake. How low you go should depend on your own body, not something you read or heard somewhere.

JUST REMEMBER… GOD made our body and He also made good natural foods for us to nourish it with. I believe we should be able to eat all the foods God provided- if He didn’t want us to have them, He would not have created them. YES, we do have some problems in this area and we have also been given a number of solutions for those problems. THEREFORE choose wisely.

You are always free to choose, but you are never free from the consequences of your choice!

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!

Is CHEMICAL-FREE And KETO Eating The Same Thing?

‘tImage result for chemical-free food images Image result for chemical-free food images Image result for eat keto food images

THEY ARE BOTH MOSTLY ORGANIC–

HOWEVER, they both are, in some ways, different-

LET’S TAKE A LOOK– I’ve eaten chemical-free as much as possible for a number of years and always suggest others do the same– so now you ask- just what does that mean? Just what are the chemicals put into our foods and how do we leave them out? I covered that on my EAT HEALTHY! page, but let me say it again for those who haven’t seen it. Eating chemical-free is more than washing pesticides off our fresh garden foods after we get them home. Many foods you are familiar with are considered chemicals by the healthy food industry, because when these food ingredients are processed, it removes much of their nutrients and changes their properties. The result is an ingredient that is often toxic to our system, resulting in fat and/or disease when consumed. I have often used sugar as an example. The sugar cane is a plant that comes from Mother Nature and is a wonderful thing for us to enjoy- it can be squeezed and the juice used to sweeten, or dried and used that way. However, when people decided to process it, bleach it white and give us only sweet granules, it then became a chemical. Because it is high in carbs and many people want a low carb sweetener, stevia and Monk fruit have become popular. They too, are from Mother Nature, and are wonderful to have and use as long as they haven’t had their properties changed, thus turning them into chemicals.

SO what about the Ketogenic way of eating?

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. This has made it a very popular tool for those who need to lose weight and it also has a great many other benefits as well. I’ve noticed that a lot of people are using chemicals to sweeten things with instead of the natural things from Mother Nature, the main one being Erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol and also the main ingredient in Swerve, also very popular with the ‘zero carb’ bunch. Erythritol occurs naturally in pears, watermelon, grapes, and when processed has no carbs but is very sweet- thus is quite popular. Since I do recommend a chemical-free way of eating, I suggest you go with Monk Fruit or a good Stevia (that doesn’t use the whole plant which tends to make it bitter). Neither of these will add anything to your carbs, yet are found natural in nature, so don’t have the side effects that are sometimes experienced by some who use sugar alcohols. We prefer SweetLeaf, BUT do check ingredients.

We are pleased to recommend to you Dr. Ken Berry MD, who has and continues, to study this subject in depth, bringing us many great videos. You can also ask him questions and he will answer, but be patient- he is a very busy man. You may also follow my progress with this article that I keep up-to-date… Keto Foods- No Potato Or Banana?

Keto Foods- No Potato Or Banana??

Image result for Keto foods images

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, NO POTATOES OR BANANAS??

When I first discovered I needed a Ketogenic diet, I was just fine with that- after all, I knew all about counting carbs- learned about those years ago from Dr. Adkins and recently had 3 doctors tell me to count carbs not calories, THEN I DISCOVERED THAT AT THIS POINT IN TIME MY BODY WILL NOT HANDLE MORE THAN 10-15 CARBS A DAY!! WOW!! THAT’S NOT MUCH AT ALL!

As I began to reach out for answers, a few people told me there were now a lot of things I couldn’t eat- I had asked when I could eat potatoes and bananas- something I was having often, and told NEVER! Many of these people also told me I had to count net carbs and track some things. Sounded complicated to me and I just want a simple answer to my question- what can I eat to stay in ketosis and be healthy- and WHEN can I once more eat potatoes and bananas!

As I searched for whatever would be helpful, I further discovered that there are folks who stop turning their test strips purple and struggle with finding answers to many questions– TOTALLY SAD AND FRUSTRATING!

OK FOLKS, ENOUGH ALREADY! Lets start at the beginning and go through this one step at a time. The beginning was when we discovered we had a problem that would be solved either by drugs or a diet to lose weight. I chose to let the natural foods from Mother Nature be my medicine and take in 60 carbs a day or less- then I discovered chemical-free eating and how wonderfully our body responds to it, AND how totally delicious it is! At this point perhaps you would benefit from my EAT HEALTHY! page.

Once I began eating chemical-free, things improved and I no longer gained weight unless I took in a lot of carbs and some chemicals– THEN IT HAPPENED– the doctor said I only had about 15 more pounds to lose, but it wasn’t going anywhere. Was I just on a plateau? When a whole year passed with me at the same weight, my guess was no.

S0– I got some keto test strips, began collecting 0-1 carb foods and dusted off my scale. It is not necessary to test for ketones to know you are once more burning fat instead of storing it, but it can be a helpful tool and is an exciting thing to do– also it is not necessary to weigh every day or week, but it’s a great way to have satisfaction and encourage ones self.

The QUESTION became- just what should I eat each day?

It gets a bit exciting to understand that most meats and healthy oils have NO CARBS!– Then to realize that there is only a half carb in an egg so TWO eggs is only ONE CARB– and to top it all off, cheeses are very low in carbs and one ounce of cheddar is only 0.4 g, less than a half carb!!– well that is very close to Heaven isn’t it? 

Let’s do Breakfast….

We do like cereals, pancakes, waffles and French toast, but our favorite thing is eggs with bacon or sausage, so we have that the most. THEREFORE– I started this journey by having 2 scrambled eggs topped with some cheddar melting over the top- crowned with a bit of sour cream and served with a side of sausage. YUM! Within 2 days I was a nice moderate purple, so next I enjoyed a taco omelet and had a couple slices of fried baked potato (about 2 Tbl.) with it just to see if I would stay purple– I did- and lost another half pound– YAY!! 

LUNCH??

Busy and not hungry, however since I don’t want to get hungry before dinner I think I’ll have a bulletproof coffee with a nice big scoop of my whey protein powder. That always works well!

Dinner….

CHEESEBURGERS- I always eat mine on a plate with a knife and fork- no bun, sooo iceberg lettuce goes on my plate, then onion slices, tomato slices, some mayo and last of all two yummy juicy hamburger patties topped with cheddar… getting full but got it all down…. the next dinner I share with you will be on Sunday two days from now…. STEAK & LOBSTER- I learned that the refreshing Chablis I like only has 1 carb per ounce, so I had a wine glass with 3 oz. and a nice big handful of tossed salad along with my steak & lobster tail…. well, I got through this day nicely, still purple, still losing– YAY!! 

So what are the 0-1 carb things I’ve discovered and like?

Just The CHEESE Aged Cheddar,  Parmesan Cheese Crisps,  Cream Cheese,  DNX Chicken BarEpic Chicken BarCoffee Creamers, (Silk) Almond & Coconut Milk,    Swiss & Pepper Jack Cheeses,  Both egg & tuna salads,

I’m adding more! WOW!!

Have you heard of PILI NUTS? YUM! These nuts (pronounced ‘PEE-lee’) contain the highest amount of fat and lowest carbs of any nut. These raw nuts have a delicious buttery taste and come in seven flavors- Natural & unsalted, Himalayan Salted, Ranch, Chili Garlic, Pizza, Apple Spice, and a Turmeric Blend of Coconut Oil, Turmeric, Ginger, Cinnamon, Redmond Ancient Seal Salt, Black Pepper. Super delicious– we’ll be getting more of these! When going out to get more, we discovered they have added chocolate to some too, and that some companies are selling these incredible nuts for several more dollars than we can get them, so beware of not just the ingredients, but the cost, since some companies are out to get your dollar rather than helping to fix your health.

One night Hubby made up a plate of sausage and cheese that included sweet-hot mustard and crackers for us to snack on during the movie. I checked the ingredients of the crackers and mustard and said no thanks, but missed the crackers, then had a ‘LIGHT-BULB’ moment- took a pkg of Just The Cheese, broke it into ‘cracker-size’ pieces and YUM! So now I know we can sub these cheese bars for crackers! Wow- who would’ve thought?

Today is Monday and I’m ready to go from 10 carbs a day to 15, so what things will I now allow myself to have?

What are the 6 carb or less things I’ve discovered and like?

Coconut Wraps,  1 Choc. peanut-butter malt ball,  CHOC ZERO,

The Bottom Line is YES, I can have potato and banana- just not much.

EXAMPLE: In the past I would occasionally toast a slice of Ezekiel bread (18 carbs)- spread 2 Tbl of my choc. peanut butter (12 more) over it and then slice a banana on top (27 more), for a grand total of 57 carbs which for many would be a whole days worth and for others would be way too much… sooo- how about half a coconut wrap (3), 1 tsp of the choc. peanut-butter (2 more), and 1/8 of a banana (4), for a grand total of 9 carbs? Perhaps you think that is silly and not worth doing, but for me it works because I get the taste I love and never feel deprived.

Should I discover more goodies, I will add them here- I am planning another order of things I want to try. In the meantime, I know I’ll be just fine with the wide variety of goodies we already have. Sometimes I’ll just have half a wrap, depending on what I want on it, but in time I should be able to have at least 40-60 carbs a day– then I’ll celebrate with some home-made sweet potato fries!

ADDING MORE! CHOC ZERO is a great company! We have now tried their KETO BARK! We got ours from Amazon and was thrilled to discover how yummy it is! This great Chocolate Bark does have 15 carbs in one oz, but also 13 gr of fiber so for those of you who care, you only add 2 gr. carbs per oz. WOW!! For a number of reasons I don’t do net, so I’ll just have a very small piece once in awhile and order more choc squares.

MOON CHEESE by nutraDRIED, is now our favorite baked cheese snack- several flavors including our much loved pepper jack, and guess what! I love the Gouda one the most- YUM.

DARK CHOCOLATE BITES by HAIL MERRY are yummy. 11 g for two, so 4 carbs net for one. YUM!! 

THE TRUCK DELIVERED AGAIN! This time we got Monk fruit sweetener and MCT powder. We chose this particular powder because it is pure and they have put prebiotic fiber in it- something my Naturopath said I needed more of. Sooo this morning my coffee had these two blended into it but I got too much sweetener– Monk fruit is much sweeter than my stevia, so I will need to use only half the amount I’ve been using!! I only put about 1 tsp. of the MCT powder in but I would’ve thought I had added a big scoop of protein powder– WOW– MY HUNGER IS GONE- TOTALLY GONE!! No doubt in the future I will be getting more of this!

Since I LOVE Granola and found this– WOW!! So delicious and healthy!! Great company! I will be getting more and recommend it to everyone!! ProGranola 12g Protein Cereal Vanilla Cinn (Paleo : Low Net Carb : Gluten Free : Grain Free) (45 Servings) (3 Pack)

Through a friend I have now discovered Dr. Ken D. Berry and he has given me permission to share the things he has researched and recommends. Like myself, he sells nothing but does tell us what he recommends. You may ask him questions and he will get back to you! Here is a link to some of the questions he has addressed.

THE BOTTOM LINE… If anyone thinks eating a healthy diet has to be something they wish to avoid- would be boring, not allow them to enjoy their favorite foods and snacks, then they are not understanding the difference between healthy foods, junk foods and all the variety that is possible.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!
