Healthy Diet





There will be several topics in today’s blog:


Like I have said over and over again here in these blogs is that

I do prevention against disease; against cancer, diabetes,

arthritis, and any other disease, any autoimmune disease is

really any disease plus inflammations of anything in the body.


My goal is to never have any of the above.  I had already

become hypothyroid in the 1980s and have been determined not

to have anything else that would cause me any disease.  So far,

I have not had any other disease besides that which being

Hypothyroid is enough because one is more susceptible to

cancer, diabetes, and heart disease being hypothyroid so I take

care nutritionally of my body.


Since each of us is unique in body structure with genes and

DNA plus a mired of other factors you need to feed your body

nutrition that will keep you from disease and this website gives

YOU the tools to know your body, mind, and spirit to keep SELF

Healthy while you age.


You need to know how much of each you body needs but

be sure you are putting into your body the best quality you can

afford anything because You are in control of YOUR body and

whether it gets any disease or not.


I believe I would not have gotten hypothyroidism if I had known that

Iodine was the one thing my thyroid runs on and my body was

running out of Iodine.


Below is a list for nutrition that YOUR body needs:




When you eat foods that contain protein, they are broken down in the body into amino acids.  These amino acids are used to build and repair any muscle tissue.  This is great for those who are physically active or exercise regularly.  You are able to recover at a faster rate than if you do not consume protein.  Every tissue in your body is made up of protein and you need to consume enough through your diet to replenish it.  Protein is also needed to help your immune and nervous system.




Gives you energy to function throughout your day.  Good carbs

Can be from vegetables and fruits.  When carbs are ingested your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin.  Insulin helps the carbs to be stored in the muscles or as fat.  Stored carbs in the body are also known as glycogen.  They are an energy supply and help to achieve better fat loss but help in overall physique.



Without fats, you will not be able to survive.  They keep your body warm during cold weather.  Fats lubricate joints and keep your muscles loose and mobile for good workouts.


Personally, I eat Irish Gold butter which is an excellent fat, I eat cottage cheese not a lot but a little.  I eat beef which has some good fat.


I stay away from bad fats – anything man-made is bad fat or anything else for that matter.


Natural fat is good fat, man-made and processed fat is bad.



Vitamins and minerals,


I make sure I also get enough vitamins and minerals.  B-complex

Is very important.  I drink Yerba mate tea-250 minerals from south

American.  Because I drink some distilled water I take Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for another good dose of minerals.



Always, enough – not too much and not too little.  I have 2 types

Filtered water at home-a PH alkaline water filter and a distilling machine for water and that is all the water I drink from those 2 sources.







YOUR immune system functions optimally when your body has

an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally

obtained by barefoot contact with the earth.


Research indicates that electrons from the earth have


effects that can protect your body from inflammation and its


well-documented health consequences.  For most of our

evolutionary history humans have had continuous contact with

the earth.


It is only recently that substances such as asphalt, wood, rugs,

and plastics have separated us from this contact.


The earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its


When you are in direct contact with the ground-walking,

sitting, or

laying down on the earth’s surface that the earth’s electrons are

conducted to our body bringing it to the same electrical


as the earth.  Living in direct contact with the earth grounds


body, inducing favorable physiological and electrophysiological

changes that promote optimum health.


Earthing is highly beneficial to our health and minimizes the

consequences of exposure to potentially disruptive fields like

“electromagnetic pollution or dirty electricity.


I have done earthing over the years – and not as consistently as


would have like to or should have.  But I have known it has


beneficial to us for years.  When I go and sit in the grass or just

stand in the grass or ground I can feel the energy flowing up


through my body.


Some of the research has been finding that some of the benefits


Decreasing inflammation and chronic pain by defusing excess

positive electrons


Improving sleep by normalizing biological rhythms, including

circadian rhythm


Increasing energy through improved blood flow and blood



Lowering stress and increasing a sense of calm by reducing

stress hormones


Improving menstrual and female hormone systems


Accelerates the healing or wounds and shortens recovery time

from injury or athletic activity


Relieving muscle tension and headache


Protecting the body from EMF’s and re-directing damaging

electromagnetic energy


Support adrenal health


At the time there are a dozen or so completed studies on

grounding that has proven beyond any doubt that becoming

grounded has significant positive effects on our physiology and

heart health.

Really has lots of information on lowering stress and creates

calmness so take heed and go out and stand/or sit in the grass.


is okay – you will be able to, like me, feel the energy moving

within your body.


YOU should go barefoot and try for 40 minutes a day.  They say

concrete is conducive but I like grass, dirt or sand.   They say

concrete floor ==like basement floor is ok.  Barefoot for sure.


Grounding also positively affects your nervous system and has

been researched that may lead to a reduction in some of your



My goal since the 1980s has been not to take any medication –


to do that I have had to learn about SELF and what SELF

requires to stay healthy.











I have been using bentonite clay for probably the last ten years

And I keep a mason jar of it in my cabinet to take 2 ounces at a

time just to wash the impurities out of my body – especially the

metals.  Heavy metal toxins usually refer to substances like

mercury, cadmium, lead and benzene, fluoride in the water.


Bentonite clay is composed of ash made from volcanos.  The

largest known source of bentonite clay is found in Fort Benton,

Wyoming where numerous volcanos are present.


Bentonite clay goes back in history as a traditional healing

a method for protecting the body from the disease a detoxing the



There are a lot of toxins in our daily lives, the air, the water. The

processed food, the plastics, the spraying, and we could go on

and I am even picky about where I buy my supplements and so

should you be because not all supplements are the same?




Bentonite clay has minerals in it, including calcium, magnesium,

silica, sodium, copper, iron, and potassium


Also, it benefits the body because it has the ability to produce a

the charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with

liquid – similar to how EARTHING (we will talk about this later).

When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water), it takes

on a different charge and is thought to bind to any present toxins

within the fluid.


The following are ways that Bentonite clay benefits and uses:


Used on skin to heal eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis


In bath as a soaking liquid to remove toxins-have done this over

the years and it is so good


Allows cells to receive more oxygen and we all know how important

good oxygenation of cells is for preventing disease


Alkalizes the body – and we have to keep that up for sure


Boosts probiotics – and that is just another important item for

prevention of disease


Relieves digestive problems such as constipation, IBS, nausea

and more


Boosts immunity by killing harmful bacteria and viruses


Improves the health of teeth and gums


Purifies waters from that terrible fluoride (the bad kind in drinking water)


Useful as baby powder alternative


I have learned over the years that some of the Bentonite clay is

packaged in plastic containers.  I have found a company here in

Austin that packages his in glass and that is what I buy.  I buy a 5

pound product – so I have it on hand and it never gets old and I

try to always buy products in glass because the plastics leach into

the products otherwise.


I highly recommend that if you know of anyone with autism, please

order a gift of Calcium Bentonite Clay – in glass bottle – for those

people and tell them to give a clay bath – instructions can be

found on the web” – there is help out there

for you all – just need to plug into the right place.  Go check it out

for yourself.


It can help with bee stings, insect bites, cat bites, jellyfish, spider







Are YOU keeping track of your Alkaline levels –Ph.


Use the little yellow stripes to check your alkaline levels.  Give

them out to friends who have no idea what alkaline level is.

Spread the knowledge you are learning from this website.


I first became aware of Dr. Theodore A. Baroody’s book, “Alkalize

or Die” probably about 16 years ago.  One of my favorite radio

people, Patrick Timpone, talked about health issues and I paid

attention to his research and what he had to say about everything.


Dr. Baroody shows how excess acids in the small intestines can

negatively affect that vital organ.  You need a clear understanding

of how alkalizing our body tissues can boost overall health and

the health of specific areas of your body.  Eating alkaline forming

foods are a solution to the problem of excess tissue acids, but

drinking alkaline water produced by any of the quality alkaline

water filters are a simpler and effective way to alkalize your



I have 2 different water items in my home:

  1. Megahome water distiller

Love it.  Have to clean it with vinegar once a month or so.

Have to take Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for minerals or can take

Other minerals but have to add minerals of some kind when

you have a water distiller.  But it is so clean and wonderful to

know I am drinking what I feel like to “CLEAN” water.


  1. PH-CT-500

Love it also.  Lasts 3,000 gallons of anti-oxidation and

alkalization to your body.  Just check it with the little yellow

strips to make sure you do not need new filter and that is still

alkalized water.  Everyone is different on usage.

Too much acid waste production from acid-forming foods is

a great burden on your body.


Have you heard of “Peyer’s Patches in the upper portion of?

the small intestines which is crucial to life.  The patches are

essential for proper assimilation of food throughout the

system and supply an important link between the autonomic

and cerebrospinal nervous system by producing lymphatic

system’s wide ranging nodal network.  And they produce

large amounts of enzyme chyle, a major alkalizing substance

created in the physical body.


Acid waste attacks the following body parts:




From colon into liver and back into general circulation.

Then into tissues

Tissues determine sickness or health

Acid wastes attacks the joints, tissues, muscles, organs and

glands causing minor to major dysfunction.


Be watchful of your bodies alkalization – use the yellow

strips always.  Know that your blood work tested by your

Annual medical test is good.

It is a daily watch for your alkaline = that is why I like juicing

Chard and put turmeric with alittle olive oil and grind black

pepper into it.  Makes for an easy way to keep up my

alkaline plus the other things that I do to help keep my body

on the journey.


This is an easy read book, lots of information, lots of good

recipes and list of foods with their acid/alkalizing numbers.


Dring Water




Dr. Masaru Emoto devoted his life helping other learn to use

prayer and blessing to improve their lives.


Dr. Emoto was fascinated with water and wondered if there were

methods of expressing difference in the nature of water.


He knew that water from a natural spring was better for you than

tap water or stagnant water.


And does water have messages for us.  Could we develop ways

to receive those messages from water.


Dr. Emoto developed a process in which he would freeze drops of

water and take photographs of individual water crystals that

formed.  He found that his theory was correct; like snowflakes,

very water crystal is unique.  But he learned much more than that.


Dr. Emoto found that you could tell much about the nature of the

water by photographing it in this way, and more importantly, that,

as human beings, we ca change the nature of water in many

ways.  Water truly does have powerful messages for us.


One of the first things that Dr. Emoto learned was that all water

does not form beautiful crystals.  He tested top water from around

the world and found that tap water does not form water crystals.

Stagnant or polluted water does not form water crystals either, but

forms unpleasant, deformed frozen structures.  Rainwater, water

from clean streams and rivers, water from glaciers, and water

from holy places around the world form beautiful crystals when



Then he wondered if we, as human beings, can change the

nature of water, so he tried many techniques to test this.  Dr.

Emoto found that if he played beautiful music in the presence of

tap water, it would then make beautiful frozen crystal formations.

He also leaned that the written word changed the water.  Dr.

Emoto taped paper strips on bottles of tap water and then

photographed the frozen water.  He found that words such as

“Thank you” and “I love you”, cause the tap water to form beautiful

crystals.  Words such as “You make me sick,” or You are a fool,”

caused ugly, distorted crystals or no crystals at all.  Dr. Emoto

then found that we cause tap water to form beautiful frozen water

crystals simply by praying for the water, by sending it loving

thoughts, and by blessing it, like YOU should be blessing your

food before you eat.


YOU can learn to use prayerful intent to put beneficial energies

into your body, into substances, such as food and water, into

objects, such as jewelry, and into your living environment.  You

can bless things with unique energy vibrations as defined by



YOU can also change detrimental energies into beneficial

energies, all with the power of prayer and blessing.


Start YOUR blessings with water, food, and even your car with

The powerful INTENT.

How powerful is water in YOUR life?



Distilled water

Filtered water

Bless YOUR water

Bless YOUR food

Put a little Red Baron soda into to help alkaline-a pinch will do.


Focusing on a Moment of Joy





If YOUR body is not in alignment, it can cause all sorts of


Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain

Foot, knee, hip, and back injuries




Muscle atrophy and weakness

Difficulty breathing

Digestion issues

Impingement a nerve compression


Carpal tunnel syndrom

Just a note:  my body got out of alignment when I did not go to

the Doctor when I sprained my ankle and eventually had to have

both hips replaced.  So do take note that it does happen when

body is not in alignment

To solve the problem, you first need to pinpoint the cause.  Most

Postural deviations occur because the muscles that work to hold

A joint in place are imbalanced.  One muscle group will be too

Tight and the opposing muscle group will be too loose or weak.

Here are 5 things to helps keep body aligned

  1. Work on your posture

Pelvis, rib cage and skill are aligned on top of each other

  1. Do exercises that promotes stabilization

Strengthen core muscles of back and abdomen

  1. Practice yoga

Promotes healthy spine and efficient movement

  1. maintain a healthy weight

overweight puts stress on joints and muscles

  1. consider chiropractic care

working on spinal alignment


3 Exercises that will help alignment:

  1. Upper back and shoulders;

Standing arm circles

This exercise engages the shoulder muscles, which, in turn

Helps to stabilize and strengthen the muscles of the mid-

Spine, resulting in less low-back pain.

Stand straight, feet hip width apart.  Raise your arms so they

Are extended out to your sides at shoulder level.  Palms up

Place the fingers into the pad of each hand, thumbs pointed

Behind you.  Squeeze the shoulder blades squeezed and

And your arms raised at your sides, rotate both of your arms

Backward in a circle of about six-inch circumference.  One

Set of 40 circles.  Then, palms down, thumbs pointed

Forward in a six-inch circle.  One set of 40 circles


  1. Mid-spine:

Statiic back knee pillow squeeze

This exercise promotes pelvic stability by supporting the

shoulders and spine as you engage the pelvic muscles and

extend the mid-spine.

Lie on your back with your legs up over the seat of a chair.


Place a pillow between your knees, and hold it with your inner

Thighs.  Extend your arms out to sides at 45 degrees with

Palms up.  Gently ssqueeze the pillow with knees aand hold 1

Second, kepping upper body and abdomen relaxed.  3 sets

Of 20 squeezes.


  1. For the pelvis airbench

Promotes proper function of hips and stabilizes the pelvis.

Stand with your back against a wall with your feet and knees

Hip-width apart.  Walking your feet away from the wall about

1-1/2 feet while sliding body down to a seated position

pressing lower back against the wall.  Allow arms to hand

down to side.  Keep weight on heels.  Hold the seated position

for 1-2 minutes


These are relatively simple and fast exercises to keep your body

In alignment.  Keep doing these and set up to do these 3 -4 times

a week and your alignment will stay forever





YOU and Energy

As you will have noticed from reading the blogs on this

website there are several types of energy in YOUR body,

mind and spirit.


Energy from your body that makes everything work together

to produce energy and fuel that helps your body function

at the highest level possible – helping you to exercise, and

give you stamina.  This type of energy comes partly from your

thyroid and the fact that it is working at the highest level

possible.  Blood type 0 has a high propensity to having thyroid

problems – so make sure your thyroid has enough iodine (I use

nascent iodine) and that is after 30 years of having thyroid

problems and not knowing how important iodine is).

But, the other energy comes from energy flowing throughout

YOUR body and extends beyond your body and probably from

science what Shamans have known for ever mixes with the

energy from other around you and the whole universal


So that energy comes from how healthy your body is and how

it flows throughout your body.   And the higher the energy level

of hertz the better energy flows up and down, and in and out so

keeping the PH level and energy flowing it is always for the

betterment of YOU.


It is up to YOU to keep the energy and make sure YOUR body

Is kept healthy and high on good organic food, and by

Exercising to keep everything running at the top level of

Energy YOU can.

It is about YOU and it will only happen because of YOU.

Do you have the courage to find out?




It takes courage and time to get YOU into the healthy

And happy shape so you can age well.

YOU are extraordinary – I am sorry YOU have to prove that


YOU have to know your body, mind and spirit so that YOU

Know how and what makes YOUR body run at it’s highest

Level and best maintained function.  YOU will not know that

By listening to well-intentioned family, friends, and any other

Environment you are in.


Do not worry about what family and friends think of you.

YOU are on a MISSION:





That takes time and effort on YOUR part because YOUR


And you need to know what power your sub-consciousness can

Sub-conscious mind can provide the answer if you put in the time

It is all powerful, provides the energy you need, provides the

Creativity you need so you know:



It is a daily walk with SELF – and of course, YOUR Higher Power

that has connected everything from the universe to the little lady



You would not be here, at this website, on this day, and at this


Time if YOU did not want to find out about


YOU will build your own TOOLBOX of  SELFhood so that you will












high protein, low carb dietWhen you go to buy foods that are marked “organic” you need to

do your research on what the FDA qualifies as “organic”?

Revised rules went into effect on Oct. 21, 2002 and the

Latest USDA definition states:

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of

renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to

enhance environmental quality for future generations.  Organic

meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that

are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.  Organic food is

produced without using most conventional pesticides; petroleum-

based fertilizers or sewage sludge-based fertilizer;

bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.  Before a product can be

labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certified inspect the

farms where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is

following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic

standards.  Companies that handle or process organic food

before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be

certified, too.

BUT, you need to think about the following when you are

shopping in your neighborhood grocery store:

  1. The air and weather has been loaded down with metals

and toxins for years now.

  1. The soil has been depleted of nutrients for years now.
  1. The seeds that are used for growing YOUR food have

all been genially engineered, and for fast growing at that.


So I buy the best quality fresh vegetables I can afford, I buy

vegetables that I have to peel-carrots, beets, cucumbers, and

others that I can peel or have a thick skin,

The most nutrients I put in my body every week is the juice

I make:  chard with turmeric, olive oil and black pepper or

carrot juice with fresh ginger root.  You can freeze individual

portions and use within 1 week.


Although it is difficult to say I do this 100% of the time-but I try

hard not to buy anything in a:  bag, box, or canned food.

I do buy tuna fish at Whole Foods, plus I buy Whole Foods

365 brand.




You are going to have to supplement because of the conditions

that the food is grown and processed anymore.  50 to 100 or

more years ago the environment and soils were organic but

that is not the case anymore.


Read, do YOUR research so You understand the process of

the food you and YOUR family eat anymore.

The grains and how they affect your digestive system and YOUR


The sky’s are being sprayed and that is having a terrible effect

on YOUR body and the food you put in it.  Toxins and heavy

metals that do damage to your body.  BEWARE – BEWARE

Over time all these negative items going into your body

will make your body diseased and sick.  Not only will YOUR

body become sick but YOU will die sick and I know that is

not what you want for you, your children or your family and



We want to die of old age and happy and healthy.  Not hooked

up to any machine where our family and friends stand around

waiting for me to die.


Dring Water

…Movable parts of the same – which is SELF

Each can be addressed separately, but what affects the MIND, affects the BODY, and affects the SPIRIT.

So we can talk about the pineal gland here in the MIND but we can also talk about it in the BODY and SPIRIT.

Do you know how important the pineal gland is to YOU?

This tiny organ regulates your daily and seasonal circadian rhythms, the sleep-wake patterns that determine your hormone levels, stress levels, and physical performance.

Pineal gland is a small, rice-size, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ that sits alone in the  middle of your brain at eye level.

Fluoride (the bad kind of fluoride) will make this gland harden, resulting in less melatonin being produced, thus disturbing your wake-sleep cycle.

Below are some ways to help clean the pineal gland:

  • Iodine – I take nascent iodine
  • Calcium bentonite clay drink

Some of the ways to activate the pineal gland are:

  • Sun
  • Sleep in darkness with no electronics in bedroom
  • Meditation-directing energy to this highly sensitive organ

Children in the United States are reaching the age of puberty at earlier ages than in the past – a trend that carries health consequences, including a heightened risk for breast cancer.

Some evidence indicates that fluoride and it effects on the pineal gland could be a contributing to this trend.

Cities are now finding out that the fluoride that they are buying to put into city water if not a good fluoride and may, not only affect pineal gland but also IQ – research has been done in different countries.  And damages bone and may increase hip fractures in the elderly.  Fluoride may cause bone cancer, research by National Cancer Institute in young men in fluoridated versus fluoridated areas.  Fluoride may also cause reproductive problems.  There has been researching about the effects of Floride around the world.

Low-income families are especially penalized by fluoridation and are the very people being targeted by new fluoridation programs.

It is hard to inform low-income families and black and Hispanic children are more vulnerable to fluoride’s toxicity.  Now that you know the bad side of fluoride and if you do volunteer work in YOUR community – spread the word – once YOU know something YOU have to take action.


This is where the fluoride in most city water comes from,  it is not a pharmaceutical grade, instead, it comes from the wet scrubbing systems of the phosphate fertilizer industry so they can make money instead of putting it in a city landfill which is not allowed in most cities.

 Fluoride is an environmental health threat but it is easy to end.

Go to your city meetings and usually, there is an anti-fluoride group  — join them, help them and inform YOUR community and try to reach out the low-income families so they have the information they need to make good decisions for their families.


Iodine-rich pink salt

Is YOUR body getting enough Iodine?

Do you know what happens when your body runs out of iodine or gets low on iodine?

Iodine does amazing things for YOUR body.

Iodine deficiency is a global health issue. The World Health Organization estimate over 2 billion people may be iodine deficient, with up to 50 million suffering from serious symptoms of iodine deficiency, such as brain damage.

When the thyroid gland does not receive enough iodine YOUR body will have problems.

I am hypothyroid — it came about in my 40s — sometimes -they were not testing for thyroid problems at that time and took me, several doctors, to find out – when my OB/GYN called me at 9 pm one night because when he did test for thyroid it was so low he called as soon as he got the test. It has affected my whole body for the past 35 years.

And then I am type O positive blood type – which after all my research and find Dr. D’Amato’s research on blood types. Which his research states that this blood type is more susceptible to hypothyroidism, among other characteristics.

There are of symptoms of being iodine deficient:

  • Slowed brain function
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Lowered immunity
  • Emotional upset and anxiety
  • Compromised organ function
  • Depression
  • Weight gain

There are several different types of iodine. I take what they call nascent iodine, for my body it works best. I also make sure I buy it from Dr. Group products. There are all kinds – I try to buy the best product I can so that if I do take any one particular product I know what is going into my body.

I also have two different water purification products at home: I have a ph. water purifier and a water distiller. I never drink water out of the faucet.

When you go in to have your next annual checkup at the doctor – have him check for your iodine levels. But if you are tired all the time, have gained weight, have a foggy brain, have anxiety you will probably want a thyroid test done immediately so you can keep on track with your health.

I take Armour thyroid-it is from a pig thyroid and I appreciate that I can get it instead of the 20 years I was on man-made thyroid.

I believe everyone should have their iodine levels checked every year to stay ahead of any issues.

Our food, our water, our air is all causing different issues in each of us. The more YOU know about YOU the better you will age Healthy and Happy.

Factors that may contribute to low iodine levels are:

  • Diets low in fish
  • Vegan and vegetarian diets
  • Decreased use of iodized sale
  • Use of radioactive iodine in many medical procedures

Bromine chemicals are in our foods and products in the US – these have been linked to behavioral changes and neurodevelopmental disorders. And they have an effect on your endocrine system which is YOUR thyroid.

I use GOOD salt – Dr. Marshall’s Pink Salt, Celtic salt, your body needs GOOD salt. Good salt helps in being healthy also. Of course, commercial salt is not a GOOD salt. Good salt helps in a good thyroid function also.
