Detoxification

As a result of the modern lifestyle, most of our bodies are burdened with toxic waste and sluggish metabolisms. Having an excess of toxic waste can leave the body tired, achy, and bloated, with a low energy level and weakened immune system. Detoxification is a process that expels excess waste and accumulated toxins from our body. Fortunately, Plexus has developed products to help the body detoxify and cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract.

Some thoughts on Pat Summit’s death….

This is incredibly sad to me. I grew up watching Tennessee girls dominate the world of basketball and for Coach Pat Summit to have passed away from these symptoms so young just really makes me sad.
Dr. Sherry Rogers taught years ago that N-Acetyl Cystine- a precursor to glutathione which takes toxins out of our body, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B- 12 can often reverse the symptoms Coach Summit suffered from. Even patients into their 80’s who had lost their drivers license have had their symptoms reversed and are able to drive again.
I know it is “appointed unto man once to die, after this the judgement.” Hebrews 9:27-28. Just so sad that Coach Summit suffered and died this way. If she is a believer though, and she was,  she is more alive than ever and God has a plan. Romans 8:28

A friend of mine shared this link earlier today in light of Pat Summit’s death from Alzheimer’s.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/03/22/aluminum-toxicity-alzheimers.aspx

The Lord just reminded me of something I learned years ago at the Environmental Health Clinic in Dallas in 1999 where I was being treated for pesticide poisoning. I met a man there who had worked for the US Treasury in Ft. Worth and he worked with printing money. They had used some experimental ink to print the money and the chemicals in it made him very, very sick. When he began detoxing in the sauna, replacing nutrients, treating for allergies, he got better. When I came home, there was a friend of mine whose Dad also worked for the treasury department in Washington DC printing money. He developed Alzheimer’s. Along the same time there was a man in our church who was the printer there. He had retired as a printer and ran the print shop at our church. All of the sudden he was in the hospital diagnosed with dementia and he died not too long after that. His wife later told me that he had become sensitive to supplements and couldn’t even take a vitamin. When he developed dementia he had been put on a new medication which I believe caused his sudden onset of dementia.
When your body doesn’t detox well for a number of reasons and it is exposed to certain things such as ink or medication, pesticides, paint, hair dresser chemicals, aluminum, etc, there can be an onset of thinking problems., along with other problems. Adding medication to an already toxic and inflammatory situation only adds fuel to the fire. The solution is not to medicate, but to detox and replace nutrients…. simple but not always easy and it takes a while to reverse things that have accumulated in our bodies. Some things can be reversed much quicker such as an allergic reaction but you have to figure out what a person is reacting to. Who would suspect ink, or formaldehyde or a supplement? My body is sensitive to all these things. Thankfully not as much now as I used to be but I am.
A more recent example is tonight I was walking and the mosquito truck came in the neighborhood. Last year, the same thing happened and instead of seeking shelter immediately like i did tonight, i kept walking. My thinking abilities and nervous system was affected big time from the indirect hit I took from the neurotoxic mosquito spray. It took me quite a while, several weeks to get over it, even though I was taking things to detox my body and replace nutrients.
I read today that Pat Summit suffered from arthritis which can be because of a leaky gut and an allergic response. If she suffered from arthritis and took drugs to control the pain and arthritis, those drugs themselves can do great damage to the gut causing other issues such as dementia. There is always a cause for symptoms in our body and it’s not a lack of medication which poisons enzymes and causes a downward spiral in our health. Look for what’s going on in a person’s environment and their history to find the clues.

 

 

Pat Summit said she would trade her 8 national championships for her health and the health of others.

 

 

Last night after I wrote the post about Pat Summit and causes of her symptoms, God reminded me that Rodney D Soto MD shared at one of his educational talks, by the time you start having symptoms like dementia, the damage to our bodies is far more than the symptoms we are seeing. The symptoms are the tip of the iceberg. That is why it is SO important to be eating the right foods that Dr. Mercola recommended in his article I posted that contain glutathione and stay away from chemicals as much as possible.
What is glutathione? It is a very important antioxidant that helps keep our cells healthy and from aging by taking toxic chemicals out of our bodies. We all make glutathione but most of us can’t keep up with the onslaught of heavy metals and pesticides and air fresheners and perfumes and household cleaners, plastics, medications, etc. that we are around each day. Each time our bodies has to detox something, glutathione goes out the body with that chemical.
Read below how L Theacrine helps to produce glutathione in our cells and helps our LIVER and DETOX mechanisms!!! Ya’ll I can’t tell you how excited I am about this! I used to take glutathione through an IV each week to help my body detox and now I am able to help my body detox through a delicious pink drink and a few products. Also, if that weren’t enough, Dr. Mercola said in his article last night that Whey Protein helps glutathione production.
I wrote this to say… PLEASE don t wait until you are having symptoms to help your body detox. We all need to be doing something each and everyday because of the sea of chemicals we live around. Plexus is something simple and so affordable and comes right to your mailbox. I’d love to share more with you if you’ll message me. Thanks so much!

Improved Liver Function and Detoxification Mechanisms
After seven days of Theacrine supplementation subjects showed no signs desensitization[3]
Oxidation is a naturally occurring process in the body, but too much oxidative stress has been linked to a number of degenerative health conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. However, in order to combat the potential hazards of excessive oxidation, our bodies are equipped with a number of potent antioxidant defense mechanisms, including the body’s most powerful antioxidant and detoxification agent – glutathione. Glutathione, along with several other antioxidant enzymes, is produced in the liver.
Studies indicate that following seven days of Theacrine supplementation subjects showed elevated levels of glutathione inside cells, which suggest that the liver receives a secondary benefit from supplementation.[1]

Glutathione: The Mother of all Antioxidants

Dear Friends,

I just wanted to share with you this great article by Dr. Mark Hyman about the great importance of Glutathione in maintaining our health.  I have been taking this for years by IV and by mouth, but last year was able to get off of the IV’s with the help of some wonderful all natural, non GMO products that help produce glutathione and do a whole lot of other great things to help our health.  Please message me for more information! Would love to share them with you!

Reasons you don’t want to depend on drugs to control diabetes

Dear Friends,

 

 

    The quotation below is from Dr. Sherry Roger’s book, “How to Cure Diabetes.”  pages 1-5.  I have read these few pages many times, and even shared some of the info on this blog.  Each time i read it, i learn something different.    Please take time to read this and order a copy of “How to Cure Diabetes,” from http://www.prestigepublishing.com or Amazon.com.  It holds the key for helping you and your loved ones to truly overcome illness and thrive and not suffer the downhill complications of diabetes, and the drugs themselves.
Proof that Diabetes Drugs Don’t Work, In Fact they Shorten Your Life.
 
“You may stop right here and say, “Wait a minute! My doctor prescribed drugs for my diabetes and we watch my sugar and hemoglobin A1C (hgbA1C). He says everything is fine” But this is not true, as you will learn. A report in the Wall Street Journal came from studies that were unveiled at the American Cardiolology meeting and published in the New England Journal of Medicine ( Winslow). What did this expensive research show? The sad fact is our great medical system doesn’t work for diabetics.” 
 
     “None of the diabetes drugs has anything to do with the cause and cure of diabetes. Drugs merely poison enzyme systems to make the laboratory blood sugar levels look more normal, while they double your risk of dying.”  If you find this as difficult to believe as I did, let me quote directly for you from the PDR ( Physicians Desk Reference, 2001,  the book in any library that describes prescription drugs). Let’s look at Diabanese  (tolbutamide), an old diabetes drug used on millions of Americans. It states “patients treated for 5-8 years with diet plus a fixed dose of tolbutamide (1.5grams per day) has a rate of cardiovascular mortality 2 1/2 times that of patients treated with diet alone.” The leading diabetes drug for decades more than doubled your chance of dying of a heart attack, while mere diet was twice as good as the drug! Yet millions of diabetics were duped for years with this category of drugs as just one tiny example. And the deception continues, as you will learn.
As a more modern example,  Metformin, the current most commonly prescribed diabetes drug lowers B12 ( over 18 percent lower), folic acid, and CoQ10. But these hidden deficiencies in turn lead to insidious memory and vitality loss that are both blamed on aging (Pelton). And these drug-created deficiencies trigger heart disease, Alzheimer’s, cancers and more. Again this is not new as researchers have warned for decades that the depletion of folic acid and B12 raise a blood protein called homocysteine, which in turn promotes many of the serious side effects  that diabetes is known for, such as early death (Sahin, Pongchaida).
   And yet diabetologists rarely supplement the nutrients that their prescribed medications destroy. As Harvard researchers showed over two decades ago, just a silent insidious B12 deficiency ( as from a leading diabetes drug, Metformin) can lead to psychiatric diseases like depression, schizophrenia, memory loss, and dementia. ( Lindebaum). And what was even worse is that this B12 deficiency may not cause the standard changes in blood tests to make doctors think of checking for it. So brain deterioration, memory loss, and even institutionalization are chalked up to “normal” aging.
Consequently, the leading drug for diabetes can bring on the very same symptoms that diabetes does, in spades. Plus these hidden deficiencies raise your homocysteine, a blood factor that increases your likelihood of having accelerated arteriosclerosis; the very thing diabetes does ( deJager). But this is why you take the drug, to slow down aging and early death. And in addition to poisoning the liver’s ability to make sugar, the drug also has a chemotherapy-like action ( meaning it can also foster cancer). In addition it can act like fertilizer for cancers. (PDR, MPR, Giovannucci)
And many drug studies have been way too short to delineate more serious side effects that occur with extended years of use. Even insulin use can increase cancers, since nobody has fixed what was broken ( Bowker, Barone). Another example of diabetes drugs’ hidden side effects, they cause bone loss, osteoporosis, the need for joint replacements and increased falls and fractures. (Yatura). And I haven’t even begun to tell you about the price you pay for stifling symptoms through poisoning body pathways instead of repairing them.
And it gets even worse with other drugs. In fact, adding one additional drug to a drug you are currently taking raises your side effects, not twice but twenty fold. One plus one does not equal two in terms of potential side effects , but twenty. A common drug given to diabetics for high triglycerides increases your risk of cancer 33% while a commonly prescribed cholesterol drug increases your cancer risk a walloping 70 %.
When even the New England Journal of Medicine publishes a study proving that 5 years of the standard drugs for diabetics does not change the death rate or lower the rate of heart attack one iota we are in deep trouble. These studies are not all new. Researchers for years have shown that neither of the top two drug categories of diabetes drugs appreciably alters the rate of progression of complications in patients  with type 2 diabetes ( Kohlstadt, Krentz). Even the Mayo Clinic has reported the most prescribed  classification of diabetes drugs like Metformin ( the class is called thiazolidinediones) can create heart failure as well as fluid retention in the lungs ( Kermani).
One in four Americans over the age of 60 now has diabetes and three quarters of them have high blood pressure and die from cardiovascular diseases. As 26 million Americans have diabetes, they are on a path of accelerated aging that propels them faster toward heart attacks, strokes, amputations, blindness, Alzheimer’s, dialysis and much more. And thrice that staggering number is prediabetic. Truly abnormal sugar metabolism is our planet’s largest epidemic. Yet it doesn’t stop with diagnosed diabetes. Twice as many folks are pre-diabetic with metabolic syndrome ( also called Syndrome X or insulin resistance) and the most common liver disease non alcoholic steatohepatitis, which are related ( Marchesini). In fact, having NASH, predicts the person will develop diabetes (Mussolini, Shibata). We are truly a nation of “sickos” and it’s just beginning to snowball. The good news is these are all curable.
But uncured diabetes also brings on painful neuropathy with loss of nerve function or numbness, erectile dysfunction, cataracts, and glaucoma. As well it destroys the kidneys leading to renal dialysis, which in turn loads the Brady with toxic aluminum, and plastocizers which further accelerate all diseases….by attacking blood vessels, uncured diabetes also leads to gangrene, and amputation of toes and legs as well as tooth loss and even cancers…cataracts, retinal damage, and blindness.  The good news is it is all preventable, regardless of how severe your diabetes is.

Below is some invaluable info from Green Med info found online, Facebook, etc.  Read the studies that back up what Dr. Rogers is sharing about Metformin.  Read also some ways to help reverse insulin resistance with food and repair a diabetic liver with turmeric.  I’ll have to say, i upped my dosage of turmeric yesterday and  I felt like a had a huge toxic unloading this morning.

“I Can’t Even Walk Without You Holding My Hand”

In all things

Faith already knows that everything that happens fits into a pattern for good to those who love God. An inconvenience is always, whether we see it or not, a blessed inconvenience.” Elisabeth Elliot, www.elisabethelliot.org

Dear Friends,

This is going to be a little different from the previous weeks, but more like my posts of old when i was in the trenches of trying to feel better each day because to be honest, i have been taken back somewhat to those days that i struggled so.  I got sprayed by the mosquito truck a couple of weeks ago walking my dog, and I’ve been taken back down memory lane as I’m continuing to recover.  Has not been a comfortable time, but it’s been a time the LORD has reminded me of my roots, That I can’t even walk with GOD holding my hand.

My friend, gospel singer Tony Greene, went to be with JESUS five years ago this week.  GOD has taken down memory lane listening to some of the songs the Greenes sang that ministered so much to me during a difficult time of suffering in my life and continues to minister to me now. One song in particular was called, “I Can’t Even Walk Without You Holding My Hand.”  I remember the first time i heard Tony share the story how GOD gave the songwriter that song.  It was during a very difficult trial he and his wife were going through. Like most things that really matter in our lives, they come through a time of difficult suffering, and that is when we hear GOD the most.  I love the quote from C.S. Lewis that says, “GOD shouts to us in our pain, and whispers in our joy.” I can relate to that.  I always know I’m in a trial when i hear the LORD’s voice through HIS WORD, and people and other means so much louder. So this week, i wanted to share with you that beautiful song that Tony Greene sang that night at Truth Baptist Church that first penetrated my soul and led me to go to the altar, one of many times, i went to the altar when i went to hear the Greene’s sing. The recording is not at Truth Baptist, but somewhere else Tony sang,it  and I wanted you to get to hear the whole story and song.  I pray that it ministers to your heart as it does mine.

A few weeks ago, one of my friends asked me if she could interview me for a health and healing show she does on her blogsite called http://livehealthyandblessed.com/.  Between her jammed packed schedule and my not feeling well at times, it took us several weeks to get to the interview and i really appreciate her being patient with me. GOD’s timing is perfect and finally one Tuesday night, it worked right for both of us! So below is the link you can watch and hear a whole lot of the health journey that GOD has led me on.  I pray that it will be an encouragement and blessing to those who are looking for answers amidst very difficult health trials. I am very thankful that GOD has brought Plexus into my life at this point in my journey and continues to use it to help me regain my health.  Thank you so much, Melissa Beshore for giving me the opportunity to share my journey:

Why is Gut Bacteria So Important?

image

Dear Friends,

Last night, before I went to bed, I came across a very fascinating webinar from Genova Diagnostics.  It was about the importance of the bacteria we have all over our body and particularly inside our intestines where we have anywhere from 2-5 lbs of different types of  bacteria.   I have often  heard Dr. Sherry Rogers say many times, if our gut isn’t healthy, we won’t be able to get the rest of our body healthy. The webinar I listened to last night through Genova Diagnostics, helped me to understand more fully why this is true. Below is the link if you want to watch the full webinar taught by Dr. Robert Rountree, or feel free to scan my notes below.

https://www.gdx.net/livegdx/human-gut-microbiome

The Human Microbiome: It’s  Impact on our Lives and Health Dr. Robert Roundtree, M.D.

Gut bacteria affects digestion metabolism, neurology, and immunology.

Up to 500-1000 different species of bacteria in our gut.
30-40 species make up 99 percent of total population

Nose 10 g streptococcus
Mouth 20g streptococcus
Vagina – 20g  lactobacillus
Skin 200 grams  staph
Gut 1000g- 2-5 lbs of bacteria

The bacteria in our bodies out number  own cells 10-1.

We get bacteria from Mom’s  vagina,
Breast milk provides bacteria from Mom’s  GI tract.

C Section increases Child’s Risk
Allergic rhinitis
Asthma
Celiac
Type 1 diabetes
Inflammatory bowel disease

Kissing for 10 seconds transfers an average of 80 million bacteria.

Couples who kiss more often have similar microbiota than
Less frequent kissers. Most pronounced in the tongue area.

GI tract- 100 trillion bacteria in gut
Heliopylori  doesn’t have to be treated.

Proton pump inhibitors, pump not working right,

Anyone with irritable bowel has overgrowth  of  bacteria.

Functions of Gut Bacteria
Digestion and energy harvesting
Detoxification /bio transformation (hormones, toxins)
Chemical synthesis: SCFAs, amino acids, neurotransmitters, vitamins
Colonization resistance against pathogens, lines mucosa and prevents toxins from coming in. C.R.A.P.
Systemic immune modulation

Some of my best friends are germs.
Butyrate very helpful- antiflammatory protective properties.

Major Influences on Individual Microbiomes:

Host genotype
Type of birth: vaginal vs C section
Excessive Hygeine
Diet: fermented veggies are great! Sugar causes imbalances,
Probiotics and prebiotics
Medications: antibiotics, NSAID
Stress ( emotional, social)
Chronic Disease
Aging
Surgery ( gastric bypass)
Fecal implants

Lack of gut species rich in diversity associated with poor health.

Excessive sterile environments, diets low in plant fiber, repeated exposure to antibiotics, aging all decrease microbial diversity.

Hunters have much more microbial diversity than westerners.

Antibiotics: stop the killing of beneficial bacteria. Even one course of antibiotics can cause disruption in the Microbiomes that some never recover from.

Antibiotics a
We are too clean and blasting out our good bacteria.

Reduced diversity of the intestinal microbes is associated with increased risk of allergic disease at school age. Allergy Clinical Immunology

Reduced bacterial diversity of the infants intestinal flora associated with increased risk of allergic sensitization, allergic rhinitis, and peripheral blood eosinophilia.

Overuse of antibiotics is fueling:
Obesity
Type 1 diabetes
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Allergies
Asthama

These diseases are going up dramatically.

People staying in ICU had complete ecological gut bacterial collapse.

What causes Dysbiosis ? (where you good bacteria is too low and bad is too high) not in balance

genetic  (mutations)
Lifestyles, stress
Early colonization birth in hospitals altered exposure to microbes, vaccinations and antibiotics, extreme hygiene

What has Gut Microbiota Disruption Led to:
Acne
Allergies and Asthma
Autoimmune Disease
Diabetes
Reactive arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis
Spondylitis
Autism
Colon cancer
Cardiovascular disease
Irritable bowel symptoms
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Fatty Liver Disease
Obesity
Aging

Things that help put gut bacteria in gut:

Fecal Bacteriotherapy:
Human Probiotic Infusion-Transplanting an entire ecosystem, good success

Dietary changes- mixture of foods, prebiotics and Probiotics. Dr. Roundtree

“Overuse of antibiotics could be fueling the dramatic increase in conditions such as obesity, type 1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies and asthma, which have more than doubled in many populations.” Blaser

My comments:  I have taken many, many probiotics in my health journey, and I’ve eaten some fermented veggies, drank Kombucha, ( a fermented beverage) and  the last digestive test i had done from Genova Diagnostics, i still had dysbiosis.  This webinar alludes to the fact that once the gut flora has been damaged it’s hard to fully recover.  I was raised on antibiotics for ear infections, and continued that practice with my son until GOD showed me through the damage i had done taking antibiotics for everything.  True to what the doctor shared on the webinar, my son was on antibiotics for ear infections until he was about two, then i started learning about olive oil and garlic, and we just stopped going back to the ENT because he always had fluid even though he had tubes in his ears, and the doctors just kept him on antibiotics.  At 4, even though he hadn’t had antibiotics in a couple of years, he developed allergic rhinitis…i remember the first time it happened, we were at the rodeo here in town, and his eyes started itching and nose started running.  I wish i had known then what I have learned in the school of very hard knocks.  I could write a large book about my health collapse after taking antibiotics after my son was born, and my health was devestated for many years, and I continue to recover.

Thanks for taking time to read this…I  truly hope this is helpful.
