Another new study… Low Carb Diets Will Shorten Your Life?

I guess the keto diet is becoming too popular and people are getting healthier.   Now their is a study done – contradicting earlier studies – that you need to eat more carbs for health??

New Scientific Study… what does it mean?  

Every other day it seems, there is a new study that is published which states that something is good for you or bad for you. It could be a study about food, or supplements, or how easy it is for you to get some dreaded disease. And there are many times that the study contradicts an earlier one.  And the next study contradicts that one. Do we believe them?

You need to know that studies are paid for by tax dollars and by companies that have a vested interest in the study. They are looking to prove that you should take a certain drug, or prescription vitamin, or that you should be wary of a specific way of living.

Vested interest means that they may be out to prove their hypothesis so they can sell you a drug or prevent you from using the competitor’s product.

Then there is the overwhelming problem, that one study doesn’t prove a thing. There are so many variables, that you can’t possible expect that a 100-300 person study (people who have been picked for the study) to show something conclusively.

So next time you decide you should not take something due to the “latest” study. Read up what it really is. Find out the science behind the nutritionally sound concept of nutrition or what your body needs to function.

Or investigate the actual studies and what other studies have been done – you can find them on PubMed.com

And here is a educational video by Dr. Berg giving you information about this latest study on Carbs 

Be Careful Out There by Doug Kaufman (KnowtheCause.com)

I don’t usually go to doctors. About 13 years ago, I revised my life insurance plan and a medical person came to my office and asked many questions, then drew my blood and got a urine sample. A few weeks later I learned that my request was denied because my cholesterol was far too high at 226. I argued my case and the large insurance carrier chose a local physician for me to see who performed a cardiac stress test

I passed the test with flying colors. I’m still alive, even with excess cholesterol swimming through my bloodstream. Imagine that! My only exposure to physical examinations prior to that was in 1972, as an exit physical exam from the U.S. Navy. I do not ever get screened for cancer, because I believe that detection tests are often.inaccurate and because of that, I believe that cancer is being overdiagnosed.

So often, I believe that going to a doctor for a minor health problem is like going to a mechanic when the red “oil” light appears on your dashboard. Doctors and mechanics are paid to find problems and they are both very good at that. Perhaps a changed diet and 3 quarts of engine oil will fix most minor problems.

How About Not Putting Toxins in Your Body

How?  One way is not to eat anything with toxins.  Interesting idea isn’t it.

So one of the dubious foods that are toxic, or worse, we don’t know that interfering with food will do.  I’m talking about GMOs.   Genetically Modified Organisms, doesn’t sound very healthy to me.

Here is some links that will take you to:

GMO Companies (they don’t want you to know

How to Know if Food is GMO

GMO & Non GMO Labeling on Produce

GMO Free Companies

And so you know why – what is GMO 

To your Health!

Toxins = Bad Health

There are so many ways that toxins can get into your body and disrupt the normal body functions.   Yes, you can breath it, you can ingest them, you can even get it through your skin.’

Wonder what is in your beauty products?  What is in that shaving cream?  What is in the make up or skin softener?  What about the cleaning products?

What about the food you eat?   Not only can it have lots of toxins from the way it was grown, but now most vegetables are genetically modified …. GMOs.

Start somewhere and start eliminating the toxins from constantly being used by the body instead of what it should be using for health.

Here’s an article on GMO in case you wonder about buying non-GMO products but think they are too expensive.  Think about how expensive bad health is.

What is Processed Foods?

I keep being told that someone eats natural foods only and doesn’t eat processed foods.  But, when I talk further, they don’t know what that means..

Thought I’d give you some information – a processed food s any food that’s been changed prior to being consumed according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

When nutritionists  refer to “processed foods, they have a lot of additives.

Does it come in a box?  That’s a hint.

Processed foods comes with being heavily modified and contains a long list of ingredients.

That covers a lot of food.

Here is an article that can help.   Processed Foods

 

Why is What You Eat So Important?

So often I hear from various people that they don’t want to change their diet, they are too old to change what they eat and besides disease is really hereditary anyway

Is it?  I very often tell someone when they complain about the cost of healthy organic food, that they can spend more now or they can pay the doctor later. Besides the pain, loss of income, and anxiety of that might be wrong when they get ill, they miss out on all the energy they could have right now.

As an example of what a poor diet can do, may I present an article Diet of The Plague? What Went Wrong?

How does this work?

You have to understand that there are forty nutrients that cannot be made in the body. They are essential fatty acids, 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, and 10 amino acids. Collectively these forty nutrients are spoken of as the body’s requirements. From these our bodies synthesize an estimated 10,000 different compounds essential to the maintenance of health. All the forty nutrients work together. Therefore, the lack of any one might result in the underproduction of hundreds of these essential compounds. Probably no one nutrient is ever totally lacking from an otherwise adequate diet, but partial simultaneous deficiencies of many nutrients is common.

Your body needs these things every day to function. You have to start paying attention to what you eat, and make sure you take those vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids that are missing in your diet.

Rather than have to deal with sickness and heroic measures to save your life (surgery, drugs, etc.).  Isn’t it a better idea to build health?

Understanding what your body needs and providing it is your best Health Insurance.

 

We need to shift our focus from treating disease to generating health…” Hippocrates (“The Father of Medicine” 460 BC – 380 BC)

Improve Your Health by Getting Toxins Out of Your Home

There are so many ways for toxins to sneak into your body – food, drink and through the skin.

We live in a toxic environment. The air you breathe can be polluted with chemicals (some places more than others), the toxins can come via processed foods (just look at the labels sometimes) and in the household products that you clean with. Cleaners that you wash your dishes with, cleaners for your bathroom, bedroom and kitchen, and even those you brush your teeth with.

8 Hidden Toxins: What’s Lurking in Your Cleaning Products?

We wanted to forward this article as one of the two ways to create “bad health” is to not get all the nutrients your body needs and to put toxins into the body. This article really goes over all the ingredients you don’t want in your cleaning products. It’s very interesting.

Jessie Sholl gives different suggestions on what to use that is safe and we also have a recommendation for products that not only are not toxic BUT was created when years of research indicated that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of some essential oils. That is at the end of this article.

What is the Essential Oil Called Thieves???

This is a special blend of oils.   Why is it called Thieves?

The story of this blend of oils all centers around one event, the Bubonic Plague. During that time, there were four thieves who went from house to house to rob those who had died of the plague. After these thieves were captured and tried, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to rob them but not be affected by the illness. It seems they had formulated a special combination of oils.

Thieves offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste.

Why would you want to use products with Thieve’s oil blend?

There are two things that create health. One making sure you get the 40 nutrients that the body needs in order to function properly. And the second, to not put any toxins into the body that will lead to the body not functioning properly. Thus you can ditch and replace any toxic chemicals in your house knowing the value of these oils.

Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house and use Thieves cleaning products that are without harsh toxic chemicals.  It is known that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of these oils.
