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 clearing your MIND of stress

 

There are always constant ups and downs in life, roadblocks,

unplanned obstacles, arguments, and setbacks that all contribute

to one thing – stress, and lots of it.

 

White you cannot avoid stress altogether, simply letting it build up

and consume you can lead to not only a meltdown but sickness

and the dreaded thing called “disease”.

 

A clear mind is a healthy, productive mind.  Listed below are 8

ways that may help you clear your mind and be relaxed and

healthy along this road called “Life”.

 

Talk to a friend.

Read a great book

Write in a daily journal

Hit the gym hard

Go for a long run

Go punch for punch in the boxing ring

Take some time to meditate

Unplug from technology and for a walk or hike

 

Inc. Magazine had an article about how to clear mind in 15

minutes:

 

Oh, this is really good and give it a try on one of those really

stressful days that show up often in Life:

 

5 minutes of physical activity

4 minutes of gratitude

3 minutes of meditation

2 minutes of silence

1 minute of deep breathing

 

what a wonderful way to spend 15 minutes.  Try it, you may find

that it actually does clear out the stress.

 

Dr. Mercola’s ways to relieving stress:

I have read, listened to and practice a lot over the years that Dr.

Mercola has to say.

 

Not relieving stress in our lives can cause:

Depressing, anxiety and moodiness

Immune dysfunction

Weight gain or loss

Cardiovascular disease

Sleep problems

Stomach and digestive problems

Headaches and back pain

Dr. Mercola says:

Sorting our priories and learning the value of saying NO

Meditation helps you take deliberate break from stress

Meridian tapping technique – which I have done over the years

 

Dr. Swenson’s books contain some other:

Laughter

Music

Nature

 

There are lots of ways listed above to relieve stress on a daily

basis.

Remember, the one reason to work on the above ways is

especially to stop sickness, disease, and anything negative

invading our daily life.

I have found that doing “First things First” and not putting off a

task I do not enjoy.  I always have a mission every day, I have a

plan, a triage plan if necessary.  There are always things that are

going to stress us out but also taking a deep breath and relaxing

shoulders and letting the body relax is a very helpful stress relaxer.

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.

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.

 

Healthy aging and Joy for today

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 Vaccines

 

I do not know anyone who believes there should be no vaccines.

But, there are more and more Doctors and researchers who

believe it should be limited to a few very good non-threatening

vaccines.

 

But there is a vaccine injury compensation program for a reason.

Very difficult to even get a hearing before the court.

 

Dr. Blaylock has talked about vaccines and their side-effects and

also about excitotoxins in processed foods but today I will be

talking about the interview between Dr. Blaylock, a neurosurgeon

and expert on excitotoxins and the brain.

 

Dr. Blaylock’s books are:

 

Excitotoxins:  The Taste that Kills

Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients.

And Dr. Blaylock wrote an introduction to Neil Z. Miller’s “The

Vaccine Safety Manual.”

 

MMR vaccines can be split into the 3 separate shots for babies.

When my grandson was born I suggested that to my daughter-in-

law at the time and thank goodness she did see that the doctor

gave my only grandson 3 separate shots that are the 3 in 1 MMR.

 

The CDC states on its website that the MMR and pertussis

vaccines can cause permanent brain damage.

 

The flu vaccine is what most of the people have in this country as

they age.  I have not had a flu vaccine for almost 30 years – and

never have a bad bout of the flu in those years either.

 

Some flu shot formulations contain brain-destroying toxins.

Here are some of the substances that may be added to flu

vaccines:

Aluminum

Antibiotics

Egg protein

Formaldehyde

Monosodium glutamate

Mercury

CDC says that these are necessary to keep vaccines safe and

effective

 

All vaccines carry a risk of provoking an acute adverse reaction.

Vaccines are immune suppressive-they suppress the immune

systems.

 

Some components in vaccines are neurotoxic and may cause

immune and brain dysfunction, particularly heavy metals such as

mercury preservatives and aluminum adjuvants.

 

Vaccines may alter your t-cell function and lead you to become

chronically ill.

 

The flu shot is an individual choice.  I do not believe anything

medically should be mandatory and especially shots.  It should be

up to the individual.

 

I work on a daily basis to take care of my own health and work on

my nutrition and exercise to keep me healthy.

Here is Dr. Mercola recipe for staying away from flu and staying in

a healthy state:

 

Optimize your Vitamin D levels

Avoid sugar, fructose and processed foods

Get enough rest

Have effective tools to address stress

Exercise

Good source of Omega-3 fats

Wash your hands-I use natural bar soap.

Use natural antibiotics:  colloidal silver, oil of oregano, and garlic.

Avoid hospitals.

 

Hope all the above has helped in making a wise decision for

getting the flu vaccines over the years.

Stay healthy

Age healthy

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

YOU and feeding YOUR brain/mind

 

The mind does not reside in the brain but for the YOUR mind to

work as well as it can then YOUR brain needs to be fed as well as

possible on a daily basis.

 

Your brain needs the same nutrients that every cell in your body

needs.  It needs macronutrients, like fat, protein, and

carbohydrates and micronutrients like vitamins and minerals.

 

YOU have to eat portions of fat, protein, and carbohydrates every

day for the brain the function properly.

 

Oxygen and deep breathing is so very important also to the brain.

By deep breathing and knowing for SELF I have not had a

headache –can feel a headache coming on and I take deep

breaths for about 5-10 minutes and headache never occurs

because I am filling my body and mind with deep oxygen.

 

In the fat, protein, and carbohydrates they need to be organic and

NON-PROCESSED – only those fresh and organic should go into

your body for your mind to function at top level.

 

A health inspector told me once “only shop around the walls of a

grocery store – not in the middle where all the processed food is”.

 

Try not to eat anything with white flour or sugar in the recipe.

YOU are not going to be able to do that 100% of time but if you

think about it you can stop a lot of random eating.

 

It will help YOU to think how you will be at 80 or 90 years old –

and how you will age beautifully if you are careful with processed

foods in your 30-40.

 

Magnesium is one of the best minerals for the brain.  There are

several different kinds and I take the one to help sleep and bowel

movements.

 

Omega 3 – especially during childhood – helps build proper

neural connections and helps create the barrier that protects the

nerves throughout life.

 

Vitamin D3-important for proper growth and development,

protecting the body against muscle weakness

 

Here is a list of brain foods

Watermelon

Chicken

Seaweed

Quinoa

Milk

Sage

Sesame Seeds

Lentils

Butternut Squash

Za’atar – middle eastern spice mixture

 

Listed below are 5 nutrients that are very important for the brain

and only found in animal foods

 

Vitamin B12 – meat, fish, and eggs

Creatine – meat

Vitamin D3 – comes from animals, cod fish liver oil best source

Carnosine – in animal tissues

Docosahexaenoic acid(DHA)-fatty fish, grass fed animals products.

 

FOR THE BRAIN – children and adults need the right types and

the right amount at the right time.

 

Balance in everything – please feed your brain good nutrients and

foods- and especially the little ones in your family for their little

brains and depending on you to take care of them until they make

their own decisions
