Be prepared to suffer for Me, in My Name. All suffering has meaning in My kingdom. Pain and problems are opportunities to demonstrate your trust in Me. Bearing your circumstances bravely—even thanking Me for them—is one of the highest forms of praise. This sacrifice of thanksgiving rings golden-toned bells of Joy throughout heavenly realms. On earth also, your patient suffering sends out ripples of good tidings in ever-widening circles.
When suffering strikes, remember that I am sovereign and that I can bring good out of everything. Do not try to run from pain or hide from problems. Instead, accept adversity in My Name, offering it up to Me for My purposes. Thus, your suffering gains meaning and draws you closer to Me. Joy emerges from the ashes of adversity through your trust and thankfulness.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

All Fats Are Not Created Equal
Here is the “Meat” of our Discussion: Are all fats created equal? “Fat” Chance, Dr. Hyman says! Some fats are good for you and actually help you loose weight….others make you put it on. As we studied last week different types of foods and calories interact with your body in different ways. Some fats are healthy and some are lethal…that’s why this is so important! Problem is most of the healthy fats have been eliminated from our diet and most of the fats that are lethal are so predominant in the modern day food supply they are hard to avoid.
“Good “ fats communicate messages of health and weight loss; “bad” fats communicate unhealthy messages that contribute to weight gain. Bad fats turn off you fat burning genes, making it much harder to lose weight. Good fats on the other hand, turn on the genes that increase metabolism, help us to burn fat, and make us more insulin sensitive. (Insulin resistance is a condition where you develop a tolerance to insulin and produce excess amounts of insulin. Generally this is because you eat too many sugars or bad carbs. This is a major contributor to every known degenerative health condition. You want to be insulin sensitive, not insulin resistant.
Studies have shown that the fat in fish oil, EPA (good fat) turns on fat burning and improves insulin sensitivity. Transfats (really bad fats) have the opposite effect, blocking your metabolism and slowing down fat burning.
Here the important thing to remember in all of this…eat the right fats, and you turn up your fat-burning capacity; eat the wrong fats, and you switch on the genes that make you gain weight and slow down your metabolism. The type of fat you eat is more important theamount of fat you eat.
The king of the good fats is the omega-3 fats. These are the fats that come from wild foods such as wild salmon, not farm raised. Most of us are deficient in these healthy fats. Unfortunately most of the fish we consume or farmed or from oceans polluted with mercury and full of PCB or heavy metals that are toxic to us.
- Wild fish, including wild salmon, herring, sardines, and fresh anchovies. Avoid farmed fish and large predatory fish such as tuna and swordfish, which accumulate more mercury
See an interview here with Dr. David Perlmutter (fhttp://www.perlhealth.com/ )or a good interview on DHA, oils that come from fish that help feed the brain and helps decrease inflammation.
Here is a GREAT link for healthy wild seafood, and good health news…http://www.vitalchoice.com/shop/pc/home.asp
- Flaxseeds and flax oil
- some types of nuts and seeds, including walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and hemp seeds.
GOOD FATS- Monosaturated Fats
The Mediterranean diet gets up to 40 percent of their calories from fat, mostly from monosaturated fat derived from olive oil. This type of diet reduces the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Olive oil intake has been shown to reduce inflammation, boost immunity, and contains powerful plant antioxidants called phenols. It reduces blood pressure and blood sugar, lowers cholesterol, and thins the blood. It is considered to be the among the healthiest types of fat. The best sources are:
- extra virgin olive oil
- brazil nuts
- sesame seeds
- pumpkin seeds
This was the end of our discussion from the book, we ran out of time. We talked about the new Suzanne Summers show during class tonight, as the topics seemed to keep coming up during our discussion…topics like fiber, and it helping to shed toxins, and weight, and bioidentical hormones. Life Extension, http://www.lef.org, sponsors this show, and it is filled with a WEALTH of great information. You can watch the full episodes by clicking on the link below. I included the notes i took when i watched a couple of the shows….
I also included the link for the importance of detoxing your liver by Life Extension…interesting a friend sent me this link as i am starting a liver detox under the supervision of one of my doctors. I asked my class to pray for me tonight, and i will ask you too, also. I don’t generally do supplements well, and i don’t detox too well either:). So i’m counting on your prayers, and the LORD’s answer to them to help me through the next 10 days or so. A friend suggested in class tonight that i keep a journal so i think i will do that on my blog….this is the first night, and i took the Xymogen i 5 shake that has lots of good stuff in it…like pea protein isolate, rice protein concentrate, taurine, L-glutamine, glycine, fiber complex, and some more good stuff. The vanilla shake itself is delicious! I mixed one scoop with 8 oz. of filtered water. No problem there…i have just a little bit of headache, nothing major yet:).
Also, i am taking another product by Xymogen, http://www.xymogen.com, called MedCaps DPO…it has lots of good stuff too like N-Acetyl Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Green Tea, Pomegranate Extract, etc. to help you detox. I’m trying not to read the label too close, so i won’t think about what’s in it they i may react to.
My dear doctor, Katherine Henry in Richardson Texas, 1-972-234-4776, turned me on to Xymogen Products, so i feel confident in them if she recommends them. She also recommended one of Susan Summers books when a friend of mine had breast cancer. Dr. Henry taught me about N-Acetyl Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and many, many other valuable lessons about supplements, that i am continuing to learn about and want to pass on this information to you. I have taken some of these under her care for the past few years, but never in this form before at this dosage.
Dr. Rodney Soto, http://www.holisticalabama.com, recommended me take 4 of the Medcaps in the morning and evening, but i started out with one, to let my body get used to it. If i make it okay through the night, i may bump it up to two in the morning. I’ve learned through painful experiences to start slow…
I’m counting on your prayers….here we go liver detox!!!

HERE is a GREAT Link from Metametrix about what toxins may be lurking in your home making you and your family sick…www.everydayexposure.com. It is SO important to clean up our environment at home so that our bodies can recover and heal from what we are around in the outside world. It’s kind of like fellowship with our CHRISTian friends at church and all…our church family should be a place we can heal and renew our energy from the mission field we encounter in the world each day….
