     Dear Friends,
             This will be another great seminar packed with such important information that so many of us need to hear because of all the chemicals, including plastics which are estrogen mimics, and  food additives that are influencing our hormones and causing everything  from foggy thinking, to sluggishness, to irritability, to weight gain, etc.  We have different challenges than our grandmothers and great grandmothers and we need to learn how to balance our hormones and get rid of the bad hormones safely.  See this article from the New York Times yesterday about the dangerous ingredients in cosmetics such as phthalates that are endocrine disruptors .  http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/05/the-cosmetics-wars/.
See http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ to rate the safety of your cosmetics.  
    Suzanne Sommers said on her TV health show  http://www.thesuzanneshow.tv/episodes/  that hormones are the fountain of youth.  Her doctor who worked with her after her breast cancer recovery said that using bioidentical hormones are safe and keeps us young and vibrant and sexy!  Well, may be too much information there, but wanted to perk your interest how important hormones are for us AND our husbands!  Men’s hormones decrease too, they go through andropause instead of menopause and they benefit from hormone replacement too.
    So call and make your reservation for you and your hubby, and hope to see you at Dr. Soto’s the next seminar, “Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life!” See Dr. Soto’s website http://www.holisticalabama.com/ for further information.
                                                                                                                   Love,
                                                                                                                     mitzi

“You’re Not Fat, You’re Toxic,” by Dr. Rodney Soto and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

You’re Not Fat, You’re Toxic-Seminar by Dr. Rodney Soto, www.holisticalabama.com

Dr. Soto’s talk last Tuesday night was more than excellent! We had 8 people go!  Six of us went together in Louise Todd’s van, and  two more met us over there.  It was a lot of fun.   If you have not had the opportunity to attend one of his talks I can’t encourage you enough to go…call 1-256-325-1648 to get on their email list for the next meetings.  You get a bargain of a wonderful meal AND incredible health information all for $25.00. Plus they had a drawing for about $100.00 worth of supplements!

Dr. Soto began the evening by sharing some exciting news with us…he will be getting a hyperbaric oxygen chamber soon and begin treating all kinds of illnesses from reversing stroke symptoms,  Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and many, many other illnesses which need oxygen to help REVERSE damage to the cells, and get the mitochondria working properly again.  You can read more about what a hyperbaric oxygen chamber does by reading the article below  from Newsmax health:

After Dr. Soto talked a little about the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, he talked about why NOT to get Flu Vaccines, and how to build up on our immune systems with proper nutrition, eating whole, unprocessed, organic foods, taking supplements such as Vit. D, Vit. C, etc.  He told us that the US Govt. is the largest purchaser of vaccines and it’s big business.  30% of CDC’s budget is devoted to purchase of vaccines.  Civil fines and criminal penalties can be levied against parents who don’t comply. He also discussed the heavy metals found in the vaccines that are damaging our health.

Dr. Soto said we don’t need vaccine and that it doesn’t protect us from the strain around us.  He said we don’t need to be afraid of bugs and bacteria…our immune system needs to be challenged….so let your kids get dirty!

Then he began to talk about the main topic of the evening, “You’re Not Fat, You’re Toxic.”  He said that being overweight is a symptom.  It’s the wrong time to exercise when you’re overweight.  In order to lose weight, you have to restore health.  RESTORE YOUR HEALTH first and then you will lose weight.

If you lose weight too fast, you become sick….the toxins that were stored in the fat, goes to other organs in the body.

What MAKES us Toxic? Poor Diet, Environmental, including pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines, pesticides, household chemicals…see below for more.

Where Are Toxins Found?

  • Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup…High Fructose Corn Syrup is Driving Obesity numbers weight up!!! Dr. Soto said that High Fructose Corn Syrup is more addictive than cocaine
  • Pesticides found in so much of our food, Coffee, corn, wheat, etc, used to spray our lawns, crops, homes, businesses, etc

There are many other sources of toxins found in our homes such as household cleaners, cosmetics, chemicals outgassing from new furniture and the building materials in new homes, personal care products, mold, etc. He encouraged us to DETOX OUR HOMES:…see http://www.everydayexposures.com

He says that toxins have a synergistic effect.

Dr. Soto says we also produce toxins internally…metabolism is driven by Mitochondria.

He encouraged us to detoxify our body but warned that DETOX NEEDS a LOT of NUTRIENTS….you don’t want to detox if your gut is not healthy.

He recommended 2 Books for Further Reading about this subject:

Clean, Green, Lean: Get Rid of the Toxins that Make You Fat by Dr. Walter Crinnion

UltraMetabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman

You can purchase both of these from http://www.amazon.com

He also touched on the dangers of whole wheat, how it is driving our weight up because it is Genetically Engineered, and it is a Super Carb…he said to avoid wheat like the plague.  He referenced the book, Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis, i think, to support his comments about the dangers of wheat.  He suggested the grains millet, quinoa, amaranth, and buckwheat instead.

This is just part of what he spoke on…i forgot my phone so i couldn’t take notes on it, and i ran out of room on my paper.  I hope that you can see how blessed we are to have a doctor such as Dr. Soto come to our area and will make your plans to attend the next seminar with us.  He is thinking about speaking on the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber next time.

Until then, come and join us on Tuesday nights as we continue through the book Ultrametabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman.  Our class meets at 6:30 p.m. at our house.  We discuss all kinds of topics like those Dr. Soto discussed Tuesday night.  We’d love to have you and your friends and family come and join us!

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Helps Stroke Patients

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 12:12 PM

The same type of therapy that helps scuba divers recover from the bends spurs recovery in some stroke patients years after their attack.

The treatment, known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, involves closing the patient in a room with higher-than-normal air pressure, then delivering oxygen to rejuvenate damaged brain cells, called neurons. Oxygen levels in the body are increased tenfold with this therapy, the researchers said.

The 59 patients in the study showed differing levels of recovery, but some improvements were dramatic.

One 61-year-old woman who could not bathe, dress or climb stairs without help after suffering a stroke a year earlier was able to not only bathe and dress on her own, but also was able to shop and cook independently, the researchers said.

Another participant, this one a 62-year-old woman who had had a stroke 14 months earlier, regained lost language and reading skills and was able to walk, climb stairs and eat on her own. Before the stroke, she needed help with all of these activities.

Stroke from either a clot or a bleed in the brain can result in problems with mobility, loss of reading and speaking ability, and the inability to complete some of the most basic tasks of daily life, such as bathing, dressing and walking.

It is the leading cause of disability among adults in the United States.

Physical, speech and occupational therapy can help with recovery in the early weeks and months after a stroke, but many patients still don’t fully recover their abilities.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is currently approved in the United States for decompression sickness (the bends), wound healing, carbon monoxide poisoning, skin grafts and thermal burns, among other applications, said the study’s author, Dr. Shai Efrati, a faculty member at Tel Aviv’s Sackler School of Medicine.

Although the therapy has been studied in some patients soon after they experienced a stroke, this is the first study to look at the therapy in patients in the “late-chronic phase” after the stroke, the researchers said.

All participants in this study had suffered an ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke between six and 36 months earlier, and none had shown improvements in their condition for at least a month.

Half of the group received 90-minute sessions of oxygen therapy five days a week for two months while the other half received no treatment for two months and then started the oxygen therapy.

Brain imaging done before and after oxygen therapy showed improvements in brain activity after the therapy was completed, and some patients showed impressive functional improvements.

There were a few patients for whom improvements were marginal, said study co-author Eschel Ben-Jacob, a physicist with Tel Aviv University’s School of Physics and Astronomy and the Sagol School of Neuroscience.

Side effects were fairly minimal: Six participants experienced ear troubles due to pressurization and two patients with a history of seizures had mild convulsions.

Two years after the treatment ended, the improvements held.

“The rationale is that once the damaged brain area has been reactivated, there is no going backward unless there is another insult,” said Efrati, who also is head of the Hyperbaric Institute at Assaf-Harofeh Medical Center in Israel.

Ben-Jacob said high levels of oxygen allow neurons that have been damaged but are not destroyed to become active again, reconnecting with other neurons and firing the signals needed to maintain healthy brain function.

The researchers believe oxygen therapy also may be able to help people with other neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s, and are currently studying it in patients with traumatic brain injury.

The study did have one significant limitation in that there was no group that did not receive oxygen therapy for the sake of comparison, Ben-Jacob pointed out.

But another expert noted that the trial followed what is considered the gold standard for assessing how effective a treatment is during a clinical trial. The stroke victims who got the oxygen therapy first were chosen randomly, the treatment regimens were compared going forward in time and other factors that might have influenced the outcome were controlled for, explained Dr. J. Bradley White. He is an assistant professor of neuroscience at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and a neurosurgeon with the Texas Brain and Spine Institute in Bryan.

“People will look at this and see they did it the right way,” he said. “I think it will garner more attention.”

White added that although more studies are needed, he found the findings “exciting and promising.”

The findings are published in the January issue of the journal PLoS ONE.

Psyche Meds Linked to 90% of School Shootings

Dear Friends,

Note: The following article is a new addition to the blog since i wrote it last week addressing the  issue of prescription meds and violent behavior…http://mobile.wnd.com/2013/01/the-giant-gaping-hole-in-sandy-hook-reporting/.  I hope you will take time to read it.

I wrote a blog before CHRISTmas about possible causes of the tragic shooting of the school entitled “Prescriptions Meds, Toxins, and Violent Behavior.” https://hisgraceissufficienthealth.com/2012/12/16/217/ The article was in response to another article i read by Mike Adams how psychotropic drugs are contributing to the violent behavior that we are so often hearing about these days.  I backed up and said that we need to examine the reasons the people are on the drugs to start with…environmental causes such as heavy metals, chemicals, nutritional deficiencies…all of which can contribute to depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive behavior, bipolar disorders, autism, and more.  Over the holidays, i read some more articles that i wanted to share with you about the disturbing behavior patterns we are seeing more and more frequently in our society.

http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/psych-meds-linked-to-90-of-school-shootings/-“Some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade have been linked to a widely prescribed type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of RxISK.org, an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.”

This  chart shows the high rate of those using antidepressants that were involved in the tragic school shootings http://ssristories.com/index.php

I am not condemning anyone for taking antidepressant drugs.  Instead look for the causes of the depression, whether they are spiritual, or environmental…and address those causes.  Antidepressants can cause a volatile mix in those already struggling with chemical overloads in their bodies.  Environmental doctors such as Dr. Katherine Henry, Texas Institute of Integrative Medicine, 972-234-4776, Dr. Sherry Rogers, http://www.prestigepublishing.com, and Dr. Rodney Soto, http://www.holisticalabama.com can help you discover the underlying physical, emotional, and sometimes spiritual causes of depression.

Several years ago, Dr. Sherry Rogers wrote a book called, Depression, Cured at Last. She lists in the book several environmental causes of depression including mold, and in her book tells how to address the causes and get well.  I noticed several years ago, when i was in Gatlinburg, Tn, in the woods that i love so much, that i tended to get depressed.  The mold up there from the trees affects me that way.  It is such a blessing to find out what causes us to feel the ways we do, whether they be physical or emotional, or spiritual, and to be able to do something about it. Knowledge empowers us to be freed from a captive situation, whether it is spiritual knowledge of CHRIST coming to save us from our sins, or the knowledge that for some people who can’t detox chemicals too well like me, detoxing our bodies, and staying away from chemicals as much as possible can bring healing and a change of behavior and life.  Think how many broken relationships, divorces, and all could be caused by environmental issues affecting a persons behavior…and how many could be avoided if the root cause was treated and the problem overcome.

http://thebluereview.org/i-am-adam-lanzas-mother/  This link is heartbreaking…it’s not adam lanzas mother, the killer of the elementary children, but it’s a mother like his who is struggling with a son who exhibits violent behavior towards her and she is afraid of him.  She too is searching for the cause. I used to would say, you just need to discipline your child, or your child needs to know CHRIST and have a change of heart.  Those things may be true…indeed every child needs consistent discipline in love, and most importantly needs to know CHRIST as their personal LORD and SAVIOR.  However, when i began to suffer from the effects of chemicals and pesticide poisoning, i never dreamed how chemicals could make me feel just by being around them.  They can make the mildest mannered person mean.  People who suffer from chemical sensitivities can be around a minute amount of something they are sensitive to and it makes them very irritable.  If you add a prescription drug, along with the plethora of other environmental chemicals and toxins we are around daily, we can be asking for a volcanic eruption, literally in a person’s personality. Detoxing the chemicals and replacing the person’s nutrients, are keys in helping a person return to healthy person emotion, physically, and even spiritually.  It’s amazing the difference that detoxing and replacing nutrients makes in a person’s health and personality.  I know because i am one whose life has been dramatically affected by chemicals and i have been so blessed to have  been helped by knowledgable doctors who have helped lead me out of the darkness i was in.

http://www.olivetreeviews.org/news/headlines/item/2505-was-the-sandy-hook-shooter-sinful-or-just-sick?-december-21  This is a good follow up article…are these shootings all because of sin or being sick.  I believe it’s both.

One more thing as i close out this blog…you remember several years ago the lady who drowned her five children in Houston, Tx?  This really hit hard with me because i learned that she was a homeschool mom, and she was also a nurse.  I too was both of those.  This was a CHRISTian family from all i could learn, and they had one of the same posters with the names of CHRIST on their wall that i had on mine.  This really bothered me, and i later learned from an article that Dr. Sherry Rogers wrote that this mom had worked as a chemotherapy nurse. Working around chemo drugs alone could have altered this young mom’s chemistry in her body. Dr. Rogers wrote about nutritional deficiencies and how they can cause us to be mentally unstable until they are corrected.  At the time, this young mom was off of her psychiatric drugs i believe.  I remember she wasn’t taking them.  I am sad to say, my brother in law, killed himself suffering from a bipolar disorder, and he wasn’t on his medication at the time. This brings me back to a difficult place…at the beginning we read an article where the shooters were on antidepressants and they killed…the bottom two i listed were off their meds at the time when they killed and were killed.  My brother in law was a pastor…he knew better spiritually but his flesh was sick. His behavior had been erratic for years.  This young mom who drowned her 5 kids in the bath tub also seemed to be a CHRISTian….it’s time we looked further  than blaming guns and even sin. The mother who drowned her children didn’t have a gun…and  look also at environmental factors that are causing us to display violent, very violent behavior that we don’t understand.  LORD, help us…“My people perish for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 6:4

If any of you are interested in joining our Ultrametabolism Class where we are learning about the underlying causes of our health issues…and how to correct them, please contact me.

In CHRIST alone,

 WARNING, WARNING, WARNING!!! The headline below was on the Dr. Oz show on Dec. 28…

The Long Island Medium: Can Lost Loved Ones Help Cure Your Anxiety?

 

Stay away from mediums!  Have nothing to do with them!  Deuteronomy 18 -I was horrified to see this headline in my email on Dec. 28.  I knew that Dr. Oz is NOT a CHRISTian,  and having a medium on his show is another indication of what is wrong with our society.  We have turned away from the one true GOD of the Bible and are now consulting mediums. The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 18 to have nothing to do with mediums. Please use spiritual discernment and discretion when watching Dr. Oz, or reading Dr. Mark Hyman’s books, about everything.   We live in a day and time where more and more of our culture is secular instead of CHRISTian and we must stay in GOD’s WORD to be wise and set apart to be HIS witnesses in this dark world.  “Ye are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14

<< Deuteronomy 18 >>  

10Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter ina the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and because of these detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.13You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

 

“Amazing Grace,” and Ultrametabolism- Preparing for Part 2 The Seven Keys for Successful Weight Loss

Inline image 1
     I’ve included a video of  “Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone,” by John Newton, Chris Tomlin   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbe7OruLk8I. May the LORD richly bless you as you watch this.
Part II of Ultrametabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman:
 

The 7 Keys to Successful Weight Loss:

1) The first key is to control your appetite and metabolism by understanding how the brain, gut, and fat cells communicate with one another through hormones and brain messenger chemicals called neuropetides to drive your eating behavior.
 
2. The second key is to understand how stress makes you fat and how to overcome its effects.
 
3. The third key is to control inflammation,a hidden force behind weight gain and disease.
 
4. The fourth key is to prevent cellular “rust,” which interferes with metabolism and causes inflammation.
 
5. The fifth key is to learn how to turbocharge your metabolism to turn calories into energy more efficiently.
 
6. The sixth key is to make sure your thyroid, the master metabolism hormone is working optimally.
 
7. The seventh key is to detoxify your liver so it will properly metabolize sugars and fats and eliminate toxins and toxic weight. 
 
    These 7 keys are critical to long term sustainable weight loss.  They don’t depend on deprivation or punishment but on nourishing and caring for your body.  Dr. Hyman says this is the first comprehensive medical and clinical perspective to outline and provide a program that addresses all of the most important aspects of metabolism and weight loss.  Some of these concepts, such as inflammation and oxidative stress have never been identified as keys to weight loss. Ultrametabolism  teaches us how a comprehensive view of the entire landscape to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
 
   The way we live and choices we make sabotage our best intentions. Working with our bodies instead of against them we can learn to stop acting in a way that triggers a flood of molecules sweeping us down a slippery road of survival behavior designed to make us store fat. This is what Dr. Hyman promises us through Ultrametabolism.
 
 
My personal testimony is i was a skinny kid, and an athlete in college.  When i got pregnant with John Mac, i gained a LOT of weight and never thought i would struggle with my weight like i did.   After had him, i had a cascade of health issues, but never associated anything with weight gain.  I eventually lost the weight i gained pregnant when i went on a low carb diet, but the health problems persisted…in my thirties, gradually continued to gain weight no matter how healthy i ate.  When i started detoxing in the sauna, i was told i would lose weight, i didn’t and have gradually continued to gain.  
When i was on thyroid medicine, my weight stabilized  but i wasn’t able to lose. When i started seeing Dr. Soto, one of the first things i told him, was i  had gained weight and couldn’t lose weight.  He showed me the book, Ultrametabolism,, and to be honest i was a little offended.  I thought weight gain isn’t my main problem… and didn’t want him to think so:).
     As i began to read Ultrametabolism, it gave me a greater understanding of what my doctor in Dallas has been trying to help me with for years with my thyroid, adrenals, and all.  It was very freeing that it wasn’t my fault that i wasn’t losing weight.  The LORD knows i’ve been trying to eat healthy for years, not perfect, but there were some key mistakes i was missing, one was eating refined carbohydrates…albeit they were organic gluten free, but they were still refined.  Our body works best eating whole grains instead of processed, even organic, gluten free grains. I learned last year that i am close to being insulin resistant and i couldn’t understand why…i ate healthy.  The unrefined carbs are bad for our blood sugar. 
    Another thing that is clicking is the importance of getting my adrenals working right.  Dr. Katherine Henry taught me several years ago the importance of taking the proper nutrients for my adrenals, Vit. E, Panothenic Acid, (B5), Vit. C, adaptogenic herbs, and Phosphodityl Serine.  One thing i remember her telling me was the importance of going to bed every night by 10:00 p.m. something i haven’t done.  I never thought about staying up late being tied to not being able to lose weight.  If you have too much cortisol, it makes you more insulin resistant and you can’t lose weight.   My husband has been telling me to get in bed too, ladies…tough lessons in not being submissive.  High cortisol also causes your thyroid not to work right…guess what i have low thyroid.   So many keys are coming together for me.  I appreciate so much the diligent patient teaching of Dr. Katherine Henry for the past 7 years to help me, and i am thankful for Dr. Soto, and Dr. Hyman, who are continuing to help me gain a greater understanding of why i have had trouble losing weight and the other health issues i have struggled with.  Dr. William Rea,www.ehcd.com, helped me have an understanding of how pesticides and the environment affected my health, and Dr. Gus Prosch, helped me to learn about yeast problems many years ago.  There have been many great doctors and their staff, that GOD has used to help me and i am so very thankful for my loving husband who has stayed with me and worked hard to pay for this journey.  I thank GOD for this journey….it’s been long, hard, but oh so filled with GOD’s precious grace along the way…grace in the form of HIS helpers to me.  Thank you for giving to the LORD, i am a life that has been changed….
    As i continue this journey, i am excited about the healing the LORD is bringing to me, and to you.  It brings me great joy to see the “light bulb,” going off in your minds, and you getting well.
    Dr. Katherine Henry in the Dallas, Tx area, 1-972923494776 can help you with the tests Dr. Hyman orders, and Dr. Rodney Soto, here in Madison,www.holisticalabama.com can help you in our area.  
      Come and join us after CHRISTmas, at FBC, Athens at 5:00 p.m. in Rm 207 for the rest of the journey….filled with GOD’s “Amazing Grace.”
 
“Through many dangers, toils and snares,
   I have already come,
   Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far 
   And grace will lead me HOME.” 

Ultrametabolism: Week 4 “The Fat Myth” Continued

From JESUS CALLING by Sarah Young- “Be Prepared to Suffer for ME”
 

October 14

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

 
“Let them give thanks to the LORD for HIS unfailing love and HIS wonderful deeds for men.  Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of HIS works with songs of joy.”  Psalm 107:21-22
With Halloween coming up, Chick Tracts are a great way to share the salvation of JESUS CHRIST with those the LORD brings to your door….click on this link for suggestions for tracts to share for Halloween or anytime!

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.

GOOD FATS

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.

http://brainworldmagazine.com/dr-david-perlmutters-dha-epa-gla-bdnf/ .

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
  • hazelnuts
  • almonds
  • brazil nuts
  • cashews
  • avocado
  • 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!!!

You Can Prevent Alzheimers and Parkinson’s…and reverse some of the effects of it.

Dear Friends,

Last night i had the opportunity to go and hear Dr. Rodney Soto http://www.holisticalabama.com/ speak on Brain Regeneration and Overcoming Diseases of the Brain.  Dr. Soto is a neurologist and was the medical director of the Stroke Unit at UAB.  His experiences have led him to finding out the causes of diseases, how to prevent them, and how to reverse them.

These notes are just a small part of what he covered, but if you want more information, please contact his office and he said he would be glad to send anyone studies of the talk or further information…256-325-1648.

Brain Regeneration:  Need to restore brain function by regenerating new cells…after age 55 there is a gradual decline of brain dysfunction….it doesn’t have to be this way.  You don’t want to wait until you start having symptoms…you can have 20 to 25 years and be completely free of symptoms.  The time to start regenerating new cells, and caring for your brain and your family’s brain is NOW.

Alzheimer’s Disease Facts: One in eight over 65 have Alzheimer’s.

Mechanisms of Neuronal Dysfunction: Chemicial Exposures, microbes, oxidation, inflammation, causes destruction of brain cells.

We must identify Root Causes that creates inflammatory process.

The brain is a highly energetic organ!

Causes of Brain Degeneration:

  •  Processed Foods

People in poverty rely on cheap foods

Alzheimer’s =Type 3 Diabetes, Insulin Resistance, Oxidation

Most foods in the supermarket are neurotoxins!

Study after study shows that plant based nutrition dramatically reduces dementia, Alzheimers.

Fresh veggies, whole grains, and legumes.  Must use good fats and good phytonutrients.

Pigment in food activates neurotransmitters….more colorful food is, better it is for you and your brain!

Nutrition studies show fish containing Omega 3 oils lower Alzheimers

Vit. C and E are good.

Nutrients to Restore Brain Function:

  • Tumeric
  • Fatty Acids (DHA)
  • Vitamin E, C, B12, Folic Acid
  • Green Tea
  • Gingko Biloba
  • Resveratol
  • Coconut Oil
  • Vit D
  • CoQu 10
  • Phosphatidylserine
  • Acetyl L Carnitine

Need to take tumeric with fats…olive oil, coconut oil

Food- Dr. Soto mentioned restricting calories activates genes that help the brain.  The less you eat, the longer  you live.  But these must be healthy, nutrient rich calories….
Chemical Toxins- Driven toward brain lipid soluble…. Brain absorbs cigarette smoke  like a sponge and other chemicals.

Alzheimer’s can be dramatically reduced

Dental amalgams – mercury 50% very toxic to the brain

Increased blood mercury levels in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Cell phone use- very detrimental to brain- cell phones penetrate thru bone…. Radiation penetrates deeper in life. Think about talking  before you use cell phone… Alzheimer’s

Detrimental to the brain:

  • Pharmaceuticals(toxiceuticals)
  • Cholesterol lowering agents
  • Psychotropics
  • Beta blockers
  • Antibiotics
  • Steroid drugs
  • Immune modulators
  • Anti acid med

Stress- excess cortisol toxic to hypo campus

Stress

Exercise 3-4 times a week

Recreation
Sleep
Music
Prayer
Presence-attention to the present moment

Neurofeedback- provides patient with information about brain activity, improves cognitive performance

TMS- transcranial magnetic stimulation –
Stimulates brain- nowadays delivered thru psychiatrists

..:

hyperbaric chamber
High pressure oxygen delivery- improves oxygenation to the tissue- ( my note,- Alfred Johnson in Richardson Texas does this (http://www.johnsonmedicalassociates.com/AboutUs/AlfredJohsonDO/tabid/60/Default.aspx) if you are out in that area…)

For those who can afford it it is very effective.

Stem cell therapy- adult stem cells-adult stem cells
