Eat More Good Fats

Okay I was going to continue working on a post I started last week having to do with Nehemiah and Ezra. I am holding off because I watched this amazing video by Dr. Mark Hyman which I got the link to from Dr. Perlmutter whose book “Grain Brain Cookbook” I bought and gave to my son. A lot of my current research is because my son, David, is sick.

Despite what the American people have been told fat is not your enemy but refined sugar and carbohydrates in the form of any grain, bread, pasta, white rice, etc. is the enemy. The average American consumes 152 pounds of sugar a year! This can include high fructose corn syrup which is a big contributor to obesity. So I watched this video and took notes which I am going to share with you right now because American obesity has gone through the roof and that is because people, including many doctors, have relied on OLD research which has since been proved wrong.
The good fats are organic extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, certain fish from which we get omega 3. That is NOT farmed salmon. Stay away from farmed fish and anything that says Atlantic salmon. It is full of antibiotics and other crap and is very low in Omega 3. Sardines are also a good source of omega 3 as is walnuts, chia seeds,flax, and pumpkin seeds.

Recent studies have shown that good fats can reverse diabetes. Yes you read that correctly. Dr. Hyman used to be of the group that prescribed low fat diets to his patients but they were not getting well. He then prescribed high fat, low carb and refined sugar to them and the results were amazing. His patients got better and LOST WEIGHT!

There is fat in all of the cells in your body and your brain is made of mostly fat! In fact, ingestion of the good fats and MCT (medium chain triglycerides) which is found in coconut oil can help to halt dementia and in some cases reverse it. Good fats can also help to get rid of inflammation. Most of the diseases are a form of inflammation in the body. What is needed is not to turn the fire on in the first place. You can wake up your brain with a high fat-very low carb diet. Now the low carbs would be your vegetables and some fruits. You really need to increase the veg consumption.
Recent studies have shown that fats are not linked to heart disease but refined sugar which gets stored as the bad fat in the body does contribute to it and so do carbs in the form of any grain and food items made from it: flour, bread, pasta, etc. Most people do not get the NMR lipid test and the cardio IQ test which really gives an accurate picture of what is going on.

Cholesterol is more complex than previously known. You need the good fats to beef up the good cholesterol which is the HDL one. And it lowers the bad one:LDL
Dr. Hyman did a study where he put a group of people on a high fat diet for 21 days. They lost an average of 7 pounds, although one person lost 46 pounds and all their symptoms disappeared!!

Fats will also make you feel less hungry and give you more energy. If you have a sluggish brain and brain fog, look at your diet. It’s probably all jacked up. Time for a change and onto the road to good health! The Original Manufacturer of the human body, God, knew what He was doing. He knows how the body works and what it needs and He has led me to learn all sorts of new and wonderful things that I can pass on to everyone else. There will be more posts as I learn more. Right now going through Suzy Cohen’s book on “Thyroid Healthy” which also supports findings I discovered with Dr. Hyman and Dr. Perlmutter.

What I do to add the good fats in aside from cooking with extra virgin (organic) olive oil is that I add a tablespoon of organic coconut oil to my shake which I make with Vega One protein. Vega works for me and has 20 grams of protein in it. It has NO grains, no soy, no dairy, no gluten, no corn which are the common allergens. It does have pea protein and a host of good organic veg, fruit, probiotics and maca root. I add a teaspoon of Nordic Natural omega 3 oil to it. Nordic Natural is pretty pure and uses third party lab to scan for any impurities. Then I take my other supplements with that like clean chlorella, D3, vitamin C, digestive enzymes, Gaia Herbs holy basil and Garden of Life probiotics but the one that is Dr. Formulated which does not have dairy in it. I take B complex and calcium/magnesium later due to the fact I am on levothyroxine and calcium can interfere with that if I take it in the morning. I will be adding Thyro Script from Suzy Cohen who is a pharmacist. Coconut oil also helps the thyroid gland.

You can get Dr. Hyman’s book “Eat Fat-Get Thin” from any book retailer like Barnes and Noble or Amazon. Dr. Perlmutter’s book is great, too. I want to get the actual book “Grain Brain” soon. I did buy the cookbook which has very interesting information in the first 30 pages but the book it’s based on contains more. He goes into how grains and things made from grains are the cause of obesity, attention deficit disorder and a host of other problems including diabetes and heart disease. Dr.Perlmutter is a neurologist. In other words, he is a brain doctor.
Go check out their websites: Dr. Perlmutter: and this one for Dr. Hyman which gives you access to the very same video I just watched!!

40 Days

From last Wednesday, February 10th, is the season of Lent. 40 days till Resurrection Sunday or Easter as the world knows it. When I was a child, everyone gave up something for Lent. For kids the thing we all gave up was candy so that when we got our much anticipated Easter basket it was a real treat. I think the act of giving something up sort of put us the mode for Easter because we all got new Easter clothes, shoes, hat, etc. But it is not really about the candy or coloring eggs (which me and my friends all did) or getting new clothes to wear on Easter Sunday. It’s about Jesus Christ. It’s about His sacrifice for all of mankind. It’s about the Love of God which there is no equal.

Personally I think this 40 day period should be about taking stock of ourselves and getting close to Jesus Christ. Spring clean ourselves and make ourselves ready for the King. We should be doing this all the time, mind you, but during this season we should really concentrate on it.

It is time to stop finding ridiculous excuses for not engaging in our relationship with God. It is time to kill all the “distractions” we claim are interfering with it. And if you are too easily distracted away from Christ you better seriously take a look at yourself and your conversion. This is our eternal life that I am talking about. Not about the super bowl, the hot babe (or guy) at the office, the mountain of bills at home, or any other distraction that Satan so effectively puts in front of your face because he knows it is so easy to get you off track. That makes for a poor warrior, if you are too easily distracted all the time and have let your prayer life become next to nil. And all those distractions won’t exist in the Kingdom of God. Nope. No super bowl, no lusting after whatever, no bills, no worries, no distractions. It will be a life the likes of which you cannot possibly imagine because in the blink of an eye, we will go from having a fleshly body to something way beyond our imagination. A Spirit body. And that is forever. For all eternity. What we have here on earth isn’t even life. It doesn’t even come close.

It’s not enough to read the Bible and quote scripture. The devil can do that, too. It’s in doing what Christ commands that is important and to maintain contact with Him always. Yes, you can be 24/7 in the Jesus Zone. You have to partner with Him in the development of the relationship. After all, isn’t He your first Love? He is the one who takes control. Not you. You have to let Him. You have to give up your stupid human nature and get on with it. Straighten up and fly right. Don’t let Satan reinforce the stronghold he already built inside your head. Take down the stronghold once and for all.

I cannot imagine my life without Him. I am SO THANKFUL for Him. And like I said in my previous post, you can pray anywhere at any time. I’ve told Him on a number of occasions to just burn the sin out of me because I don’t want it anymore.

It is so essential that you soldier-up right now. Things are going to get real scary in the future and Satan is working at full blast. Don’t allow “distractions” to get in the way. Fear not. Or as John Wayne put it once “Courage is being scared and saddling up anyway.” Things are going to get hair raising. Look to yourself, not what someone else is doing. Don’t compare yourself to others. God certainly isn’t.

But most of all make this 40 day period profitable. Study your Bible and pray. Pray always. If you are at a loss what do study this Lenten season you can go to sites like You Version for ideas and also She always has some Bible reading plan laid out for the 40 days. Here is the link for this current 40 days and she also has a bunch of others.

God bless you all.

I’m Sick To Death With Carnality

And God hates it too. To be carnally minded is death. (Romans 8:6). I hate it within myself and I do strive to get rid of it. The only way to do that is extended time in prayer which is basically communicating with God. You either are spiritual or carnal. Not both. You have to make the choice because life with God is eternal. Life without Him is hell.

I find it annoying when others make excuses as to why they are not changing. They are finding a reason to convince themselves they are too weak to overcome their carnality, thus making the Power of God null and void. For those who are converted Christians, we have the Power of God within us to overcome any carnal nature and to take down any stronghold that the devil has built within our minds and hearts. And he has built them. If you are still fooling yourself and trying to fool God, the devil already has you and your salvation is in danger. Don’t make God take drastic steps to rescue you from yourself because you are not going to like how He does it. I guarantee He WILL get His point across. If you resist, it’s the same as rebellion and, in case you forgot, He threw the devil and his angels out of Heaven for that. He will prevent you from entering if you continue on your present path.

Time is short. Not because any day can be your last day but because the devil’s attacks and stronghold building will intensify until he drags you down to hell with him. Do not spit on the sacrifice of Christ by continuing to make excuses for your crappy behavior, out of control lusts, compromising with the Word of God because other churches are, and any other sin you can throw in there. Don’t believe the devil’s lie of “oh it’s only a little sin, I’ll repent later”. Or “I can’t control myself, I’m weak, I’m this, I’m that”, yada, yada, yada.

I discovered when I actually spent a long time in prayer and Bible study, I ended up different. So different that it amazed me. You would not see it outwardly, at first, but inwardly there was a change. I liked it. It was like taking a quantum leap into a mere taste of what it would be like to be more spiritually minded than ever before. It was like a taste of Heaven. Things that had previously plagued me and stressed me out were reduced to cinders. I never knew that this sort of thing was possible until I took the leap and stayed in prayer, like close to an hour. So, if it is possible for me, it’s possible for anyone. You can pray anywhere at any time. If you desire God, He will make all things possible. I wanted Him, just Him. Not what He could do for me, but just to be with Him. That made all the difference.

I pray that other Christians get off their backsides and start getting together with our Father and Brother, Jesus Christ, and allow the Holy Spirit to do His work. Because you don’t have a lot of time.

Fukushima AGAIN

Natural News just published an article about the continuing pollution of the Pacific Ocean by the Fukushima power plant. More marine animals are washing up on the California coast and, instead of investigating how much radioactive material is in the ocean and in the marine life (seals, dolphins and even whales), scientists are pulling out the old “global warming” tiresome excuse. Why do you think that is? Because if they became serious about it, then they would have to acknowledge that our ocean is polluted with radiation and so is the fish we consume.

Well known anti-nuclear doctor, Helen Caldicott, had this to say: “Every day, four hundred tons of highly radioactive water pours into the Pacific and heads towards the U.S.,” renowned physician and anti-nuclear advocate Helen Caldicott warned in September 2014. “Because the radiation accumulates in fish, we get that too. The U.S. government is not testing the water, not testing the fish, and not testing the ambient air. Also, people in Japan are eating radiation every day.” Learn more:

Four hundred tons over how many years since this all began? Since 2011. The Pacific Ocean covers one-third of the planet. That’s a lot of area. We don’t hear anything about it because main stream media has swept it under the rug, as if it is going to go away if no one looks at it. So how many marine animals have washed up on the California coast? Thousands. I guess people are going to wait till they have serious radioactive poisoning and have tumors all over their body or there are more cancer cases (particularly thyroid cancer because radiation loves to make its home there!) or start glowing in the dark before the light bulb goes on and they realize death is at the door.

And those scientists who are stumped by the large quantities of deaths of marine life and wonder why the ocean seems to be warmer might ask themselves if the massive amount of radiation that has been flooding the Pacific Ocean might be making things nice and warm and cozy out there, while also killing the animals at the same time.

I think radiation is far more dangerous for the planet than whether or not one is leaving a “carbon footprint” by not unplugging electrical items used in one’s home.

We are also not hearing how many incidents of thyroid cancer are occurring in Japanese children anymore. There is a media blackout on that, too. And we don’t know how many of us having been breathing in contaminated air, as well. I am sure there will be more on this in the future.

I Ended The Detox

When I got to day 4 I was so sick of smoothies that I could not even drink another one after I forced the breakfast one down. Plus…I woke up at 4 AM and nearly lost my mind that I had another bad night of little sleep. I felt delusional all day and disoriented and dizzy. Finally at some point in the late morning I decided I had enough! This was way too insane for me. I basically blew the whole week without accomplishing anything. So I ordered Chinese food delivered and scarfed down sesame chicken, pork fried rice, steamed dumplings and two spring rolls. It tasted good.

The Bullet got packed up and I took it back to Kohl’s the following day. I actually had a sense of relief once I made the decision to stop the insanity. This sort of detox is not for everyone. I was told that many succeeded and that others dropped out. I just could not stand to drink another smoothie no matter what the promise. They were awful and I hated the texture of them. Blech! I think also the combination of a vegetable with a lot of fruits was a bit much for my system. I did not lose an ounce during that time but was told that if I stuck it out the weight would have come off and great things would have happened. I can’t even explain adequately how awful I felt. There are other ways of detoxing that does not put one in a warp speed downward spiral.

So now back to my normal life.

Detox Day 3

I was going to combine 3 and 4 but felt I needed to deal with this day separately. When I went to sleep on Tuesday night I had no idea what I was in store for. I had trouble falling asleep. When I finally did sometime after 10:30 but can’t remember exactly, I was asleep a short time and woke up at 1:45. From that point forward it was hell. I had severe detox symptoms. I could not fall asleep again. I had wild, irrational thoughts flying around in my head that I couldn’t stop. I was hungry. All I could think about was food and the smoothies were not among that. I finally got up and went downstairs and ate about a tablespoon of peanut butter because I could not stand it anymore. This wild delirium state of mind was akin to severe withdrawal. I came back upstairs and had a little wine hoping to fall asleep. I didn’t.

The sun came up and finally I got up and did my laundry. I was still out of it but made another smoothie. I started hated smoothies. I did manage to sleep a little after I put the second load in the dryer and that was around 7:30. I woke up at 9:30. Two hours. That was it. I was still messed up and could not function. I wanted to just return the Bullet to Kohl’s and stop the insanity but kept going. Haley encouraged and prayed for me that I would hang in there.

I still have not slept and it is 10:10. I am going to go to bed soon. What I discovered was that I am not the type of person who can eat or drink one type of meal all week long. After awhile I had to force myself to drink another smoothie. I highly doubt that I will have another smoothie for the rest of my life.

On top of which, I had things I had to get done this week and it all got shoved to the wayside because I was too out of sorts to do anything. I could not concentrate on anything nor could I read anything of any length. Zero attention span. Just totally muddled and foggy mind.

As of right now, I feel like crap and nothing has changed. But I was told that this will change soon. We’ll see.

Detox Day 1 and 2

Day one was not so bad. I had smoothies that consisted of spinach plus different fruits. Bananas are used a lot to make the smoothie thick and smooth. Dinner smoothie consisted of tomatoes, spinach, garlic, half an avocado and water to blend it all. I did start to get a headache and took some generic Excedrin migraine after putting up with it for a couple of hours. I started having aches and pains by late afternoon and it was so bad that I found it difficult to walk into the grocery store.

Haley emailed me to see how I was doing and I gave her updates and she gave me lots of encouragement.

Day two: Well, I had slept for 11 hours and woke up still tired! Here is where it got rough. Still had some aches and pains but I was soooooo tired, I ended up falling asleep during the day. This was after I had gone to the doctor for a blood test (thyroid) and stopped at Sprouts Marketplace for more veg and some fruit for the smoothies since our fridge is small. The cravings are intense. All I could think of was pizza and could I put it in the Bullet Rx and have a smoothie that way. Pizza occupied my mind. A nice cheese and pepperoni pizza with a slice of white pizza on the side. Yum! I think it was just solid food that I wanted but pizza was on the top of the list. And I still have FIVE more days to go! Hot dogs and Chinese food came in second on the craving list.

I hope it gets better soon as I have too much invested in this.
