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

body.

 

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?

 

BUYER BEWARE

 

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” bentoniteclayinfo.com – 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

bite.

YOUR lymphatic system touches almost every part of the body.  It

is a network of fluid-filled nodes, vessels, gland, and organs.

Although e do not feel or see it, it is one of the most important

systems of the human body.  It is important to give the lymph

system attention over the years and as YOU age.

 

The lymphatic system’s main function is to cleanse toxins and

protect against harmful invaders.  It works by carrying waste away

from the tissues and into the bloodstream.  It tackles toxins that

are introduced to the body from both external meas0food, air,

personal care products, water as well as internal ones-damaged

proteins and cellular/metabolic waste.  It is a key detoxification

pathway.

 

Through lymph nodes and the lymphatic network, your immune

cells can travel around fighting pathogens, such as bacteria and

mold, and prevent disease and infection.

 

You have to keep your lymphatic system functioning properly for

your overall health of YOUR body.

 

The stronger the lymphatic systems mean a more resilient and

reactive immune response and defense

 

YOUR lymphatic system can become stagnant and especially

with toxic debris.

 

I have used a REBOUNDER for about 15 years now – and it is

 

Rated as not only the number 1 piece of exercise equipment but

It keeps your lymphatic network clean – if done regularly

Rebounding and keeping your lymphatic network clean helps

keep your youthful skin and body cellulite-free

 

So listed below are 10 natural ways to keep your lymphatic

network clean and clear so it can flow and do its work.

 

REBOUNDING

One of the easiest ways to pump the lymph network.  And it also improves muscle tone and just over-all body good

 

 

INVERSION TABLE

Pad table that allows one to invert upside down while strapped in by the feet.  Decompresses the joints of the body and stimulates the lymphatic and circulatory system.

 

LEMON WATER

How easy is that just plain lemon water?  Use distilled or filtered water.  Every day drink half your weight in water – add the lemon so your will be alkalizing your body and getting the water at the same time.

 

ENZYMES

Enzymes are also used utilize by the body to clear toxic waste buildup in the lymph and blood, making their supplementation a key way to improve lymphatic health.

 

MASSAGE

How wonderful does a good massage feel?  I have had lymphatic massage over the years and is a special form of massage that specifically targets the flow of lymph network.

 

HERBS

Red clover is a good herb for lymph, increasing flow, which helps to detoxify the body and reduce inflammation.  I make tea from red clover that I buy at a good grocery store.

 

DRY BRUSHING

Take a dry brush with coarse bristle and brush the skin towards the heart.  This stimulates the sweat glands, opens pores, and gets rid of dead skin cells.  Encourages movement of lymph and blood in underlying organs and tissues of the body.

 

EAT RAW FOODS

I always eat raw vegetables.  And I juice a lot-chard and turmeric work well for my body.  Put as many fresh vegetables into your body as possible.

 

GO WIRELESS

Get rid of the bras with wires – clogs up the lymphatic systems under arms.

 

PRACTICE YOGA

Yoga works in multiples way for the body.  There are various forms of Yoga – try the one that fits YOU best but does Yoga for all of it’s benefits

Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC talks about in order to maximize

your health and reduce your changes of developing autoimmune

diseases such as Hashimotos, celiac disease, rheumatoid

arthritis, diabetes and other illnesses, it pays to know your blood

type.

 

Most people pay little attention to their blood type as it seems it is

only important when you are going to have an operation or other

procedures when you might need blood transfusions or when you

are having a baby.

 

There are 4 blood types, which make up the worlds

 

population:

 

O – 45% worlds population

A – 40% world population

B – 11% global population

AB – 4% worlds population

 

Foods also have substances known as lectins which act upon our

specific blood type to cause various alterations in our body

function such as:

 

Causing our blood cells to stick together

Trigger body-wide inflammation

Act as insulin by attaching to insulin receptor on cells which leads

to weight gain.

Trigger autoimmune attack

Trigger digestive system malfunction and pain

Creative intestinal damage leading to leaky gut syndrome and as

a result brain inflammation

Interrupt nerve signals in the body and alter levels of

neurotransmitters and thus cause nerve and brain malfunction

leading to ADD and even Alzheimer’s disease.

And many more things
Due to the many health damaging effects various lectins can have

on the health of people with different blood types.

 

I have used Dr. D’Adamo’s book:

“The Blood Type Diet” for years.

Apparently there are doctor’s that still do not seem to believe

Blood type makes a different in anything concerning our health

I cannot believe that because I believe it makes a huge

difference knowing what our

blood type is and how it affects our blood and particularly

our over-

all health for our life.

 

Knowing your blood type is an important tool for understanding

how your body reacts to food, your susceptibility to disease, your

natural reaction to stress, and so much more.    A single drop of

blood contains a biochemical makeup as unique to you as your

fingerprint.

 

Let us just look at STRESS and how blood type works:

 

Type A people naturally have higher levels of the stress hormone

cortisol in their bodies and produce more in response to stressful

situations.  On the other hand, people with type O blood, have a

fight or flight reaction to stress which results in the overproduction

of adrenaline.  It takes type O’s longer to recover from stress

because it is more difficult for them to clear the adrenaline from

their bodies.

 

See how that works.

 

Dr. Lam is another Doctor that I have read his website and his

blood type food chart is wonderful and have used that over the

years.  Print it out and tape to your refrigerator.

 

On Dr. D’Amato’s website is his interview about blood type with

Dr. Oz.

It does all help YOU to build your own TOOLBOX for aging

 

Happy and Healthy.

MSM is Methyl-sulfonyl-methane powerful for YOUR body

Is an organolsulfur compound that features the sulfonyl functional

group and is considered relatively inert chemically.  It occurs

naturally in some primitive plants and is present in small amounts

in many foods and beverages.

 

I have powdered MBM that I bought 5 pounds at once and try to

use it daily.

 

I use it to detox individual cells and that the uptake of nutrients will

be more beneficial in my body. I like the benefits of MSM that

makes cells more permeable, releasing certain built-up minerals

that can cause problems, heavy metals, waste and toxins, while

also helping usher in nutrients and water.  These are the reason I

take MSM.   Listed below are some other

issues that can be helped by MSM:

 

Osteoarthritis and joint pain.

Improves digestive problems like leaky gut syndrome by

rebuilding the lining of the digestive tract and lower

inflammation/allergic reactions to certain feeds.

 

Repairs skin and treats skin problems

including rosacea, allergies.  I use to have rosacea but because I

have been making sure my body receives enough nutrition on a

daily basis I have not had rosacea in approximately 20 years.

 

Lowers muscle pain and muscle spasms.

Helps repair the rigid fibrous tissue cells in our muscles that

become broken down during exercise, therefore helping to

prevent them from swelling for prolong periods of time.

 

Restores hair growth

it helps boost collagen and keratin levels that are needed for

forming new hair strands.

 

Helps the body

adapt to stress, heal and bounce back from exercise, stressful

events, injuries and even surgeries.

There are 3 other uses that have gain notoriety:

Preventing the hardening/thickening of arteries; helps the body’s

natural free radical scavenging abilities by lowering oxidative

stress.  Effective anti-inflammatory because it blocks the release

of pro-inflammatory mediators and down regulates certain harmful

signals.

 

MSM supplies the body with extra sulfur for creating methionine,

which helps in important bodily processes like making other

chemicals, forming connective tissue, synthesizing/metabolizing

foods and absorbing nutrients to be used for energy.

 

Using MSM helps my body in better immune function, accelerated

healing and reduced pain and recovery time from exercises like

marathoner.

 

MBM’s sulfur plays an important role in the production of

glutathione, considered to be a ‘master antioxidant” and an

important agent for detoxification.  This is why I have used MSM

for years.

 

I use powdered MSM and puts it in water and drinking throughout

the day.  But you can also use cream form, capsule/tablet forms.

 

Take 500 milligrams 3 times a day-it may disrupte your bowel

movements so take it slowly until you reach the amount that

works best for YOU.  Increasing your intake as your body gets

used to it and you do not experience any digestive side effects.

 

Because YOUR environment, job, family water, among a dozen

other items YOUR body needs MSM

 

REMEMBER:  MSM is called one of the miracle supplement  that

can do so many things that are good for YOUR body.

Do you know that  the involvement of estrogen and its receptors in the development of cancer has been known for years?

However, the exact mechanism responsible is far from clear. The estrogen- mediated carcinogenic process is complicated but YOU need to know as much as possible and we will do that together here on the only website that will help you know about YOU.

Estrogens have multiple functions in cells and the effect of estrogen may be cell-type or organ dependent.

The estrogenic effect may be also greatly influenced by the state of two estrogen receptors, ERalpha and ERbeta.

There are endocrine-disruptors compounds that mimic the effects of estrogen in the body and throw off hormonal balances. These disruptors are everywhere today, in our food, our water, and the household products we use every day.

Children are reaching puberty younger than ever, hormonal imbalances are linked to a variety of cancers, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and depression.

The disruptors mimic the effects of true estrogen and lodge in fatcells and are resistant to breakdown. They affect sleep, stress, metabolism and mood.

The biggest source of disruptors is chemicals.

The following is a list of how to avoid disruptors as much as possible in YOUR life:

  • Avoid plastics
  • Use safe household cleaning products
  • Reduce antibiotics
  • Change your diet
  • Avoid pesticides and herbicides
  • Buy American grass-fed animal products
  • Go raw
  • Buy local
  • Avoid SOY

There are two previous unrecognized xenoestrogens:

  1. propyl gallate — a preservative used to prevent fats and oils from spoiling
  2. 4-hexylresorcinol —used to prevent discoloration in shrimp and other shellfish these are used in many consumer products and trying to avoid them is a struggle.

They are in:

  • Pasteurized dairy
  • Soy products
  • Plastics
  • Personal care products
  • Teflon Cookware

My solutions are that I do not buy any bagged, canned, boxed foods for my home. Now, am I every going to be free of these man-made products – no, and when I go out to eat – I try to eat in locally owned restaurants that serve more locally grown food.

Protect your family:

  • Store your food in glass containers as much as possible.
  • Use natural cleaning products
  • Buy and eat organic food
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners and MSG
  • Use natural brands of toiletries’

12 Food additives to avoid and READ LABELS from now on

  1. Solium Nitrate — I love bacon – I buy my bacon at Whole Foods who have their own bacon without nitrates that are linked to various types of cancer. Ham, hot dogs, luncheon meats, corned beef, etc.
  2. BHA & BHT — a preserve common household foods and cereals, gum, potato chips and vegetable oils.
  3. Propyl gallate — another preservative, meat products, chicken sop base, gun and could be linked to cancer
  4. MSG – monosodium glutamate —a flavor enhancer in soups, salad dressings, chips, frozen entrees, restaurant food. Can cause headaches and nausea, damaged nerve cells in brains of infant mice.
  5. Trans fats — proven to cause heart disease-especially fast food
  6. Aspartame — may cause cancer or neurological problems
  7. Acesulfame-K — artificial sweetener found in baked goods, fun, gelatin desserts.
  8. Food coloring— Blue 1 & 2, Red 3,  Green 3 Yellow 6
  9. Olestra — synthetic fat found in many processed chip brands
  10. Potassium bromate — additive to increase volume in some white flours, breads and rolls.
  11. White sugar — unsafe for your health and promotes bad nutrition
  12. Sodium chloride — bad salt and good salt – learn the difference

I have used Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for years. Thera are other good salts available. Do not use off -the-shelf grocery store salt.

EMFs are all around you and I – with all the technology we have available to us today – we have to counter how these affect our bodies and especially our Pineal Gland.

If one is sensitive to EMFs they may cause:

Nervous systems symptoms

Body and skin sensitivity

Foggy brain and depression

Infertility

There are a mired of symptoms coming from EMFs.

By keeping one’s body at as high PH level as possible it will help counter all these EMFs

Inflammation can happen anywhere in the body.  It is your job to keep inflammation in control so that it does not create health problems later on down the years for you.

This year I am getting a long list of blood test for part of my annual checkup with my doctor.  One, of the test I will get is C-reactive protein test that will measure any hidden inflammation in my body.  I have had both hips replaced and several broken arms when I was a child so there may be inflammation that I do not know about.

Here is a list that Dr. Mark Hyman say may cause inflammation or hidden inflammation:

Poor Diet – mostly sugar, refined flours, processed foods, and bad fats

Lack of exercise

Stress

Hidden or chronic infections with viruses, bacteria, yeasts, or parasites

Allergens from food or environment

Toxins = mercury and pesticides

Mold toxins and allergens

When I get my blood test results back = then I will decide what action I need to take for relieving this hidden inflammation

Just using my SELF as an example of the aging process, I am blood type O positive.  There are characteristics of blood types and which foods and nutrients make YOUR body age best.  So if you do not know your blood type, Dr. D’Amato has a little kit you can order and find out your blood type.
YOUR body will work best when you feed it the best things for it.  My body runs best  on a high-protein, low-carb diet , but that is my body.  YOUR body is different and may run best on high carb or other things.
I make sure when I buy protein powder that I get quality protein powder.  Whatever you put into your body you are doing research on quality.  I buy from a locally owned pharmacy who has  pharmacists who are also registered, nutritionists.
