YOU and EMFs impact on your health and that of your children

and pets, as our overuse of electricity contributes greatly to

pollution from coal-fired electricity plants.  Those who are wise will

heed the warnings of the electrically sensitive and reduce the

EMF radiation in their homes through good design and reduction of

dependence on electric appliance.

 

Even if you cannot feel it, or see it, EMF –and more and more we

are into a wireless world.  So be informed and know it is having

an effect and it is accumulative.

 

Amir Raz, assistant professor of clinical neuroscience at

Columbia University offers the following answer about could

certain frequencies of electromagnetic waves or radiation interfere

with BRAIN FUNCTION?

 

DEFINITELY.  Radiation is energy and research findings provide

at least some information concerning how specific types may

influence biological tissue, including that of the brain.

Evidence of health effects from EMF, including their influence on

the brain, is inconclusive and the probability that EMF exposure is

a genuine health hazard is currently small. (Listed below:  Israel and

Germany have concerns) Microwave frequencies below 3,000

megahertz can penetrate the outer layers of the skin, be absorbed

into the underlying tissues, and result in all the known biological

effects of heating, including burns, cataracts, and possible death.

 

A few studies concluded that cell phone exposure enhanced

certain aspects of cognitive performance as measured by reaction

time and accuracy; others showed no difference, and a few,

including a very recent investigation, show that such exposure

had detrimental effects in specific contexts such as attention

span.

 

Martin Blank, PhD-Department of Physiology and Cellular

Biophysics at Columbia University has a wonderful little video

about the harmful health effects of electromagnetic radiation

Can cause:

Asthma-Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine

Salivary Gland cancer

Brain Tumor

Lymphatic cancer and Bone Marrow Cancer

Miscarriage

Suicide

Alzheimer’s disease

Depression

Leukemia

 

Cell towers health effects

People that live close to cell towers can have fatigue, irritability,

a headache, nausea, appetite loss, sleep disturbance, depression

and on and on

 

Many home appliances create EMF:

Cordless phones,

Wireless baby monitors

Wireless doorbells

Wireless routers

Wireless modems

Anything wireless

 

This is all from Natural News:

Ways to reduce EMF radiation in your home and life

Keep your immune system strengthened

Practice a chemical-free lifestyle

Unplug electrical appliances when not in use

Keep your bedroom, and children bedroom, free of electrical

appliances, especially near your head while you sleep

Avoid low-voltage halogen and fluorescent lighting.

Avoid use of microwave ovens, hair dryers, electric toothbrush,

electric blankets

Avoid plasma TVs

Keep computer unplugged when not in use

Avoid areas with wireless networking

 

BBC new said “low-energy bulbs ‘cause a migraine”

Israel Knesset has bans placing cellular antennas on residential

buildings.

Germany warns citizens to avoid using Wi-Fi

Be informed and know about EMF and use it, store, it in your

home carefully, in separate rooms from YOU and YOUR children.

YOU and the Power of YOUR Subconscious Mind

 

Dr. Joseph Murphy books

 

YOUR intellect will try to get in the way but do not let this be.

This is considered one of the top Spiritual authors of the last

century.  I have read “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”

starting in the 1980s.  It has been wonderful and moved me

development through life, and been an important part of that

development.  Plus, he has other books, and the one we will

eventually talk about is the Fear/Worry one because many people

have ingrained into them that fear/worry is a constant thing and it

should not be.

 

Dr. Murphy 1898 – 1981

 

The following is from Dr. Murphy book:

 

How This book can work Miracles in Your Life

I have seen miracles happen to men and women in all walks of

life all over the world.  Miracles can happen to you, too when you

begin using the magic power of YOUR subconscious mind.  This

the book is designed to teach you that your habitual thinking and

imagery mold, fashion, and create your Destiny for as a man

thinketh in his subconscious mind, so is he.

 

There have been lots and lots of books about Law of Attraction

but I believe that Dr. Murphy’ books his teachings were some of

the first that gave a basic understanding.  And most of the author’s

followed in his footsteps.

 

Dr. Murphy continues:

Why is one man sad, and another man happy?  Why is one man

joyous and prosperous, and another man poor and miserable?

Why is one man fearful and anxious and another full of faith and

confident?  Why does one man have a beautiful, luxurious home

while another man lives out a meager existence in a slum?

 

And on Dr. Murphy ask these questions about why this way and

not that way.  Then he tells his reason for writing this book:

 

The following summary is at the end of the 1st chapter and will

help you understand the difference:

 

All you need and want in life is within you.

 

You have the ability to contact and release this power of the

subconscious mind in YOU

 

Your subconscious mind has all the answers to all problems.

 

YOUR subconscious mind is the builder of your body and can

heal you.  Lull yourself to sleep at night with the idea of perfect

health, and your subconscious, being your faithful servant will

obey

 

Every thought is a cause, and every condition is an effect.

 

Never use the terms, I can’t afford it” or “I can’t do this” your

subconscious mind takes you at your word.

 

I can, I can, I can said the little red engine!

 

The law of life is the law of belief.

 

Change your thought change your life

YOU and Milk Thistle

 

Prevention should be your goal.  Prevention of cancer,

diabetes, arthritis and any disease.  The more information YOU

have on natural and organic items the better you are to maintain

healthy aging.  My goal for you is not to get any disease and the

hopes that each blog written on this website gives you information

so you will not be sick and will know the things for prevention.

 

Milk Thistle has been used for 2,000 years as an herbal remedy

for a variety of ailments, particularly liver, kidney and gall bladder

problems.  Several scientific studies suggest that substances in

milk thistle protect the liver from toxins, including certain drugs,

such as acetaminophen(Tylenol), which can cause liver damage

in high doses.

 

Milk thistle is often suggested as a treatment for alcoholic hepatitis

and alcoholic cirrhosis.  Most studies d=show milk thistle

improves liver function and increases survival in people with

cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis.

 

Early lapidary studies suggest that silymarin and other active

substances in milk thistle may have anti-cancer effects.  These

substances appear to:

Stop cancer cells from dividing and reproducing

Shorten the lifespan of cancer cells

Reduce blood supply to tumors

The above information if from University of Maryland Medical

Center

Dr. Mercola website has that milk thistle anti-inflammatory effects

are among its greatest achievements, and recent research

suggest this is accomplished, in part using a two-phase process

similar to those used by other beneficial natural compounds like

curcumin and a component of green tea.

 

Aside from liver health and cancer protection, milk thistle also

shows promise for:

Kidney health

Heart health

Diabetes

Brain health

Listed below are 14 health benefits of milk thistle

Protects liver

Antioxidant

Anti-inflammatory

Infections

Neuroprotective

Anti-diabetic

Protects the heart

Protects from chemicals and toxins

May help prevent and treat cancer

Improves bone health

Effective milk secretor

Protects against radiation-induced lung injury

Reduces iron absorption

Inhibits fat cells

 

The above list is from selfhacked.com website and it has an in-

depth explanations on each item.

Milk thistle is scientifically called Silybum marianum.  It is an annual

or biennial plant of the Asteraceae family.  Originally a native of

Southern Europe through to Asia, it now found throughout the

world.

The following is from Liversupport.com about milk thistle:

Functions as a therapeutic agent for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease

Improves blood sugar levels

Reduces cell damage caused by radiation and chemotherapy treatments

Supplements sunscreen protection and may be useful against multiple types of skin disease

Words as a free radical scavenger and powerful antioxidant

Reduces hot flashes and other related menopausal symptoms

YOU and Spiritual Power

 

There is a lot to be said about POWER – but it is about spiritual

power today.

 

How we live daily is about our Spiritual Power

Love

Forgiveness

Joy

Dignity

Character

 

Martin Luther King, Jr wrote of power and he was a very spiritual

Man:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in

moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at

times of challenge and controversy”.

 

He had that spiritual power we should all want because Dr. Martin

Luther King, Jr. had IT

 

Plato said about power:

“The measure of a man is what he does with power”.

 

We have seen over the last 70 years what many men have done

with power.  Last year the United States of America dropped over

26,000 bombs around the world.  That was in “ZeroHedge”, online

financial newspaper. This is power but not Spiritual.

 

Power can be used for good or for evil.

 

JFK knew there was a possibility that there were different groups

that would not like his policies but he was determined that his

American people did not want war or be at odds with the Soviet

Union but his spiritual self kept moving him into a place of peace

for his America.   I believe his spiritual power was at peace in the

end.

 

Spiritual Power brings each of us:

Peace

and

Joy

 

Life that moves us to aging with grace and dignity and no regrets.

 

Spiritual Power allows us to be strong in thought and actions that

we each take throughout each day, in being about SELFhood, not

what anyone else want’s YOU to think.    Put aside all news and

when Self has discovered Spiritual Power use it wisely and be at

peace about it.

 

Friedrich Nietzsche said:

“There are two different types of people in the world, those who

want to know, and those who want to believe”.

 

Be that person who wants to know “Spiritual Power” and use it for

good.  Study, read, acknowledge, and be wise with the truth you

find.  That is the Spiritual Person who has the Spiritual Power.

Reinhold Niebuhr’s book:

Moral Man and Immoral Society:  A Study in Ethics and Politics

Should be required reading for all Americans and realize that

collective behavior of man/woman is different from his individual

behavior.

 

If a government worker/private worker is doing something

unethical at work but believes their self to be a Spiritual Person –

speak up and speak out because Spiritual Power comes from

being Spiritual in all that we do, work or personal life.

 

Joy and Peace for today

YOU and the Best Brain Food

 

Dr. Axe says the best brain food is:

  1. Avocados
  1. Beets
  1. Blueberries
  1. Bone Broth
  1. Broccoli
  1. Celery
  1. Coconut Oil
  1. Dark Chocolate
  1. Egg Yolks
  1. Extra virgin olive oil
  1. Green, leafy vegetables
  1. Rosemary
  1. Salmon
  1. Turmeric
  1. Walnuts

 

I have for the last 30 years been eating many of the above in my diet – for hypothyroidism.

 

Here is the list from Webmd.com

Blueberries

Wild salmon

Nuts and seeds

Avocados

 

Harvard. Edu talks about paying attention to how eating

different foods make you feel – try cutting out all processed

foods and sugar.  Adding fermented foods like kimchi, miso,

sauerkraut, pickles, or kombucha.  They say you might want

to try going dairy-free – and some people feel better when

their diets are grain-free.  Try the “clean” diet for two to three

weeks.

 

The field of Nutritional Psychiatry is relatively new, however

there are observational data regarding the  association

between diet quality and mental healthy across countries,

cultures and age groups – depression in particular.

There are also some studies suggesting that dietary

improvement can prevent depression.  Diet during early life

is also linked to mental health outcomes in children.

An international team of researchers found that seniors who

consumed the most nutritious food had a nearly 25 percent

reduction in the risk of mental decline compared those with

the least healthy diets.  A study published in the online issue

of Neurology

 

Dr. Mercola’s list for brain food is very close to Dr. Axe.

 

In today’s environment, it is very hard to stay on a day in and

day out the diet of all the above “best brain” foods.

For the most part of the year- I never buy any canned,

bagged, or boxed foods to bring home for foods.  Once in a

great while, I will buy a can of chili or a box of favorite

crackers but it is limited to one-two times a year.

My Blood type along with my hypothyroidism requires my

body to eat mostly proteins, meat, eggs, tuna and green

leafy salad with fresh tomatoes.  I watch what I eat because I

also, have edema and I keep that at bay with my daily fresh

diet.

The above are my health issues but I pay attention to what I

eat daily.

 

I went through depression when my childhood family was

dying and I started several years ago adding

Lithium Orotate as a supplement.  Please do a search:

 

Lithium orotate Dr. John Grey and listen to his video on

Lithium orotate.

We do not have enough lithium orotate for our brain.  Very

affection and will probably help for depression and anxiety.

 

Either buy it at Dr. Grey’s website or I get mine from

The Power Hour-Joyce Riley’s radio show out of Missouri

It is the fuel that will make your brain work best.

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.

 

EAT LESS, BUY BEST QUALITY YOU CAN AFFORD

 

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

body.

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

friends.

 

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.

YOU and Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and Others

 

The Power of Positive Thinking was a book that was always in our

Home when I was growing up and had always been there and

Was something my parents practiced all the lives – and I have f

followed Dr. Peale’s principles also for my life.

 

God is mentioned throughout the book but anyone reading the

Blog’s I write know how important God is in my life.  I thank God

every day, I pray for other’s health and success, my children,

friends, and especially when I hear of any family going through

trauma I send a prayer their way.

 

Prayer and positive thinking helps YOUR body and helps your

cells.

 

Prayer and positive thinking will help anyone, at any time, on

anything.

 

Fear and worry can cause your health to deteriorate.  Being

positive and letting go of all fear and worry in your life – turning it

over to God –makes for a healthy and happy body.  I have found

that so true in my own life and know you have and will also.

 

Not only does positive thinking help your spirituality but how

important it is for your body.  To love, to smile, to laugh, to have

joy.  Between YOU and God – all the positive and wonderful

things in life bring about those positive things in YOUR life.

 

Researchers continue to explore the effects of positive thinking

and optimism on health.  Mayo Clinic has said that the health

benefits that positive thinking may provide include:

 

Increased lifespan – that is an awesome thought!

 

Lower rates of depression

 

Lower levels of distress

 

Greater resistance to the common cold

 

Better psychological and physical well-being

 

Reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease

 

Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress

 

It is unclear why people who engage in positive thinking

experience these health benefits.  One theory is that having a

positive outlook enables us to cope better with stressful

situations, which reduces the harmful health effects of stress on

YOUR body.

 

John Hopkins Medicine gives a few tips on power of positive

thinking also:

 

Smile More

 

Reframing – in a traffic jam –I take a deep breath and am grateful

 

Build resiliency – maintain good relationship, accept change, be

 

A problem solver when they appear

 

That Mayo Clinic and John Hopkins Medicine also have some

positive thinking principles, it is amazing that Dr. Peale came out

with his principles in 1930 sometime.  But, as time has come

forward even big medical centers find that positive thinking has a

lot to do with not only spirituality but with our health and body.

There are probably many more reasons to juice than the ones

 

that I am going to lay out before you in this blog but build your

 

own reasons but I am going to lay some out here.

 

 

I use my vita mixer – I use to have a juicer but it took out too

 

much of the pulp for me and so I wanted the pulp because there

 

is a lot of fiber in that pulp and I was worried I could get some

 

more of the good pulp with my vita mixer.

 

  1. The juicing nutrients pass directly into the bloodstream, ad

 

 

  1. within minutes our bodies receive optimum fuel to fee our

 

cells and help restore our immune system

 

 

  1. vegetable juice provides vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates,

 

essential fatty acids, proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants

 

and so much more.

 

 

  1. Increased energy – wonderful

 

  1. able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients which enter

 

bloodstream very quickly

I do not juice fruits – maybe a couple of times a year.  I juice

 

chard, carrots, and ginger root – and put turmeric into all my

 

juicing I do.

 

 

  1. You will never receive as much nutrients in anything else

 

except juicing vegetables

 

  1. drink fresh juice as much as possible but I do freeze small

 

jars for a week or so – looses some of it’s value

 

 

  1. nothing compares to fresh vetable juice to provide your body

 

with all nutrients it needs on a daily basis

 

  1. it increased alkalinity.  It is said disease cannot thrive in an

 

alkaline body and I have always believed that and especially

 

since I read Dr. Broady’s book Alkaline or Die book some 15

 

years ago.

 

 

Have a juicing plan for YOU – so that you can plan once a

 

week to make the juice – put in hermetic sealed glass jar

 

and it will be ok from Sunday through Thursday –or you can

 

put in 6 oz. mason jars in freezer for a week.  You have

 

choices here and work out whatever is best for your life

 

style.  There is always a choice and always options,

 

Know that juicing vegetables is the fastest way to get

 

nutrients into your bloodstream and keep your cells fed well

 

with as much nutrients as possible.

 

 

Fruit does not have the high alkaline value that greens and

 

vegetables have so be as informed as possible.

 

 

There are many types of juicers, many types of blenders and

 

other types of expensive juicers but I like my vita mixer and

 

love it because it is probably medium priced juicer

 

One of the things you must remember everyday is that your

 

cells and organs MUST be fed well on a daily basis and in

 

this blog is where you learn how to do that with love, joy

 

and peace

You and Randy Pausch

 

You say Randy Pausch who?  I have heard Professor Pausch lecturer’s he gave and know him as, from my viewpoint, one of the most influential speakers on death and dying as he was dying while he continued to lecture in college and write his book he gave and know him as, from my viewpoint, one of the most influential speakers on death and dying as he was dying while he continued to lecture in college and write his book “The Last Lecture”

Professor Pausch was a professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer

Computer Interaction, and Design at Carnegie Mellon University and was 46 and he was dying.

 

In summer of 2006 the Professor was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer,

finally on September 18, 2007, he gave his last lecture, leaving behind a wife and three little children.

 

He delivered a laugh-filled session on his last lecture of going after your childhood dreams and helping other achieve theirs and enjoying very moment in your life – even the ones that break your heart.

 

Professor Pausch’s philosophy, in a sentence, was: “We cannot change the cards we are dealt, it is how we play the hand.”

 

Professor Pausch is how I want my life to look, gracious, dignity, laughter, personal power, love, reaching for our dreams, achieving those dreams, and when there are veils of negativism withhold into our own

soul, because we all have those

 

I cannot say how often I think of Professor Pausch and his last several years of trying to stay well and then having to face his mortality and wanting those days and months to be profound for those he loved, his wife, his 3 little children and other family members and friends.

 

Professor Pausch was a great soul and seemed to view life through an angle many of will not or cannot –that magnified beauty and hope and love and makes the most of our most precious commodity-time.  He has touched many lives, mine included, just in learning how to play the hand we are dealt.

 

Class act, teachers, left wonderful book, his last lecture on YouTube and

after you read his book and listen to his last lecture – I believe your life will be re-focused on making the most of today, tomorrow, and in the

will be re-focused on making the most of today, tomorrow, and in the

future YOUR time will be more meaningful.

 

Listed below are a few messages that I received:

 

Do what you love, the rest will follow

 

Be passionate about what you do

 

Love deeply, with conviction

 

Play

 

Be interested in life

 

Be curious

 

Never lose the sense of wonder and awe

 

Support and encourage others

 

Build great relationships

 

Under difficult circumstances, Professor Pausch left many with his

grace and professionalism.  He is an inspiration to me and many others.

His legacy will live forever and for many years to come.

 

Here we are still talking about Professor Pausch and his legacy – not

only for his wife and children but to us out here “playing our hand”,

loving, laughing, being productive, being of good will and passing it on

to those around us whom we love

Aspartame, MSG, and Excitotoxins

 

Mike Adams, The Health Ranger as I know him, has an interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock.

 

Dr. Blaylock is a retired Neurosurgeon and I have listened to his

lectures, interviews, and his research for years now and believe

his views on many medical topics to be correct.

 

Today we are going to see some of those views but from other

researchers also what Aspartame, MSG and any other

excitotoxins can do to our bodies and health.

 

In today’s food world we almost cannot have used the pink, blue

or yellow packaged sugar.  I still enjoy real sugar at times, and try

to use it when I am out at restaurants.

 

Listed below are some of the effects if those items:

Related to cancer, obesity, neurodegenerative diseases and metabolic disorder

 

MSG is hiding on food labels under “innocent-sounding” ingredients

Yellow packaged sugar may suppress immune system

 

Dangers of products are suppressed

American Diabetes Association does not speak out against aspartame

Yeast extract is not good for you

There is a link between soy and dementia

Aspartame can both cause and accelerate cancer

 

Listed below is some foods that have (excitotoxins) in them:

Diet soda

Canned soups

Frozen pizza

Baby food

Gravy mixes and dip mixes

Breakfast sausage

Salad dressings

 

And hundreds of other grocery products and restaurant foods.

 

Excitotoxins are known to cause:

 

Migraines

 

Seizures

 

Increased appetite

 

Infertility and reproductive disorders

 

Impaired brain function

 

Cancer/brain tumors

 

Heart damage can cardiovascular harm

 

I try to limit intake of any aspartame, MSG, or excitotoxins

 

But I cannot eliminate all of it 100% in today’s environment.

 

Dr. Edward Group has the following to say about excitotoxins:

They make food seem more flavorful than it really is.  Food

companies spend millions on research and development on what

will make food take good so we will go back for more.  And yet

excitotoxins has been linked to brain cell death, infertility,

problems with sexual development, violent behaviors and

hormonal disorders so be careful in eating the following in YOUR

foods:

 

MSG

Aspartate

Dominic Acid

L—BOAA

Cysteine

Casein

 

When I eat out at restaurants I eat the food on the menu and

knowing that there are all kinds of processed items on the menu I

do not make an issue of it.  At home, I try to never buy boxed,

canned, bagged, or frozen meals/food.

 

Protect YOUR mind, body, and spirit with what YOU eat –

because there is a saying, “YOU are what YOU eat”.

 

Choose to be healthy as YOU age

 

Choose the farmer’s markets

 

Choose the fresh, organic vegetables

 

Chose the good food to feed YOUR body – in 30 years it will make a difference on YOUR aging.
