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.

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

YOU and The Four Agreements:  A Practical Guide to Personal

Freedom

Don Miguel Ruiz

 

YOUR spirituality is the foundation for YOUR everything.

I have a strong spiritual life- and I am sure you do also but today’s

the blog is about accepting YOURself and others as we are and

“letting go of the rest”.

 

Mr. Ruiz shares the first four Toltec Words of Wisdom.  Core

beliefs that either run or ruin your life and the ancient Toltec’s

understood this part of human nature well.

 

This book is spiritual in the way that, not only the Toltec’s lived by

these philosophies but it is wonderful today to live by the 4

agreements:

 

  1. Be impeccable to your word

 

  1. Do not take anything personally

 

  1. Do not make assumptions

 

  1. Always do your best

I try to live by those 4 agreements or statements and appreciate

Mr. Ruiz’s book so I can pick it up and read it over and over.

 

For myself, I will add one more statement that I try to live by, and

that is Jesus basic tenant of:  Do unto others as you would have

them do unto you.

One of the things most important is not to let other people drama

and chaos wear on your psyche and cause you to behave

negatively as a result.

 

Re-Wire YOUR thoughts into just WHO you want to Be-I believe

when my childhood family died within 2-1/2 years I allowed my

mind and thoughts to become depressed and it took me 10 years

to re-wire back to my normal thoughts.

 

Be stronger on a daily basis

Do not be passive on issues important to you

 

Be courageous

Step out in your faith to fulfill your life

 

Have JOY

Do not accept anything less

 

Pray/Meditate

Take time to be at one with the universal GOD

 

Exercise all that your have

Body, Spirit and Mind

 

Encourage/Empower SELF

YOU will do it best only by Self talk, reading and learning

 

Eckhart Tolle wrote a book:  “Stillness Speaks”

 

I love the stillness I can find each day.  I am quiet, have

everything electronic away from me.  I usually go out on my deck

and sit and meditate/pray.

 

Here are some quotes from the book:

 

“True intelligence operates silently:  Stillness is where creativity

and solutions to problems are found.”

 

“Every though pretends that it matters so much.”

 

“Is life every ‘not this moment’?”

 

“sometimes surrender means giving up trying to understand and

becoming comfortable with not knowing.

 

“Love does not want or fear anything.”

 

Build YOUR library, so you can pass it down, to your

grandchildren.  They will not appreciate all these wonderful

authors until their later years but it is YOUR legacy to them a

library for them and their children

Oh, how we love to talk about our emotions.  But, I believe you

may need to know about what researchers in Finland have

compiled and the first authoritative atlas of “body maps” that

detail where we feel emotions.  You can now know that happiness

actually makes us feel tingly all over, that sadness is felt in the

heart, and that depression is characterized by an all-over

numbness.  It would seem idioms such as a chest puffed with

pride, or cold feet, are very much seated in physiological reality.

 

YOU know that emotions are linked to physiological changes –

nervousness and sweaty palms, shame and a hot head/cheeks,

fear and a racing heart – but this study, carried out by Lauri

Nummenmaa and friends are exciting because it uses a very large

the pool of participants – 700 people from Finland, Sweden, and

Taiwan – and is controlled by nationality and language, in other

words, despite differences in language and culture, it seems that

all humans have a very similar, genetically idiom tells us to pride

really does make your face and torso feel good.

 

The researchers hope that, with continued study, these maps may

help with diagnosing and treating emotional disorders.
Each emotion triggers a very specific and unique physiological

response.  Happiness and love are the only emotions that

increase sensation below the waist.  That is interesting and we all

know that is true from our loves over our lifetimes.  Sadness

decreases the feeling of everything, except for the heart and parts

of the fee.  Depression is an all-over lack of sensation.  It is

starting to see shame’s intense increase of sensation in the head

and cheeks, fluttering heart and stomach, and numbness of legs

so accurately depicted.  Now we just need to work out WHY and

 

HOW each emotion triggers such a physiological response?

 

Let me list the Primary, secondary and tertiary emotions that are

Categorized into a short tree structure

 

Love

Affection – adoration, love, caring, sentimentality

Lust – arousal, desire, lust, passion

Longing – longing

 

Joy

Cheerfulness – amusement, bliss, joy, ecstasy

Zest – zeal, excitement, thrill

Contentment – pleasure

Pride – triumph

Optimism – hope, optimism

Relief – relief

 

Surprise

Surprise – astonishment

 

Anger

Irritation – annoyance

Exasperation – frustration

Rage – resentment, dislike

Envy – jealousy

Torment – torment

 

Sadness

Suffering – hurt

Sadness – depression

Disappointment – displeasure

Shame – remorse, regret

Neglect – isolation, neglect

Sympathy – pity, sympathy

 

Fear

Horror – shock, horror, terror, panic

Nervousness – anxiety, worry, tenseness

There is new research from the Institute of Neuroscience and

 

Psychology at the University of Glasgow that says the range of

human emotion may be a little closer to a teaspoon than

previously thought.

 

Four basic emotions, according to this study; happy, sad,

afraid/surprised, and angry/disgusted.

 

From these 2 research that is above – can group as seen into

smaller groups,

 

One of my favorite authors is Gerald G. Jampolsky who wrote

“Love is Letting go of Fear” which is an amazing book – little as it

is but had a profound effect on my when I read it in the 1980s.

 

So, to get down to the basics of our emotions –Love is letting go

of Fear is probably a great little book to read.  The research

above is always good to know and understand also.

MSM is a very critical nutrient for your body to remain youthful

and energetic.  As we age, along with diet deficient in essential

nutrients, our bodies become stiff, our cells become rigid, and our

overall energy begins to rapidly decelerate.

 

MSM (methysulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound that

is naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle.  Sulfur is present

in many natural unprocessed foods, but it is quickly lost during the

cooking process.  MSM is gaining a lot of attention due to the

recent focus on longevity and anti-aging technologies.

 

Here is a list of 7 benefits from MSM:

 

  1. Improves skin health and complexion

Necessary for collagen production.  MSM can normalize collagen formation and radically improve skin health

 

  1. improves flexibility

MSM is highly effective in improving joint flexibility.  Increase in overall flexibility due to a restoration of the “juices” in the tissues

 

  1. Detoxifies the body

MSM make your cells more permeable.  Allows toxin and metabolic waste products to easily be moved out of the cells, while essential nutrients and hydration can be moved in.  It is a calcium phosphate dissolver, breaks up the bad calcium that at the root of degenerative diseases.

 

  1. Strengthens hair and nails

Collagen and keratin are both critical for the production of healthy hair and nails.  It is a “beauty mineral” that provides the sulfur needed to produce collagen and keratin.

 

  1. Accelerates healing

Lactic acid and other byproducts cause pin and soreness in the body.  MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate waste products at the cellular level.  Speeds recovery and frees up more energy for rebuilding

 

  1. Naturally, increases energy

Due to the increased permeability of the cells, less energy is required to deal with the accumulation of toxins.  This results in more energy being redirected towards activity and necessary healing.  Digestion is the biggest energy requirement of the body.  Approximately 70-80% of your energy is spent on digestion each day).  MSM increases the absorption of nutrients so that the energy expenditure on digestion is vastly reduced

 

  1. Anti-inflammatory

MSM is a powerful anti-inflammatory due to its ability to allow metabolic wastes to be removed from the cells.  Excess weight on the body is actually inflammation.  The cells of the body are chronically inflamed and retaining the byproducts of metabolic process.  Sulfur needs to be present in order for these toxins and wastes to be removed from the body.  When these byproducts can be removed from the system, then the cells can also dispose of excess fluids that were being stored in a buffer.

 

I use to buy at People’s Pharmacy but it was very expensive-then

I found organic PC Network that sold 5 lbs. at a time that was

reasonable.

 

YOUR body needs MSM

 

Work your way up from ½ tsp a day until 3 tablespoons a day to see real benefit.

What do YOU suppose the difference is between YOU

being negative and around negative people OR

YOU being positive and around positive people.

The best way to approach YOUR life is to try to stay away

from negative people; whether they are family or friends stay

away from them and if you find yourself around those kind of

people please smile, be as positive as possible, and do not

fall into their pattern of behavior because they will want YOU to

agree and just nodding your head verifies their mind-set.

Be at YOUR best – be at your most positive mind-set.

Stay away from people who are possessed with just a small

Thought process.  Narrow thinking makes people zero in on

negativity – they are not self-aware because they are needy,

all about managing others to their way of thinking.  They have

no idea about the WHOLE person-mind, body and spirit.  At this

blog and in my life I want YOU to be the most:  Self-aware person

you know so that you can help others in a more positive and

productive way that they need from YOU.

Be kind, be helpful, be positive, be happy, be loving, be generous

and YOU will see YOUR whole life change in super wonderful

ways.

Learn and read from the wonderful books that are available to

you.  The only way I feel wonder at 74 years of age is because

my mind is open for learning from others that have gone before

me.

What does YOUR

LIFE EXPECT FROM YOU?

 

One of my favorite authors and researchers is Immanuel

Velikovsky – he wrote, and you should read his writings, because

It is about YOUR history that is now only beginning to be

Understood and coming to the forefront of the WORLD.  But,

Because of Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky and his research of decades

And his writing we are now learning of the real World History.

But he paid the price because they are people who do not want

us to be SELF-AWARE, or be OUR BEST, or be the MOST

POSITIVE, and to know that the past may be the key to YOUR

present.

YOU will never know what LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU until

YOU TRULY KNOW SELF AND THE POSSIBILITIES OF SELF-

Not other self’s but of YOURSELF.

Never settle – in your personal life, in your professional life, in

your family life, or in your friend’s life.

Professor Velikovsky gave up a wonderful life because he would

not settle, would not cave-in, would not give up on the truths that

he knew would change the world thinking of their history.

In 1950 he already knew from his research there.  There were

some approximately 40 predictions that he made that the

academic scholars-so-called but not really said different than

Professor Velikovsky.

Be a Professor Velikovsky – see your higher-self, see that

what life expects from YOU, never settle for people around YOU

that are negative, that are needy, that are negative vampires.

 

BE POSITIVE, BE SELF-AWARE,

LEARN WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

 

YOU will only learn when YOUR MIND, BODY and SPIRIT are

In balance and working on it daily for the rest of your life.

tragedies and trauma.  They are coming to all of us – those

traumas and tragedies.

What is in YOUR tool box to deal with the traumas and

tragedies that come into all our lives.

Use all the tools in YOUR toolbox:

Meditate

Exercise

Start a project and finish the project as YOUR goal.

Plan to do YOUR bucket list

Write in your journal

YOUR life patterns that show how YOU deal with tragedies

And trauma in your life are characteristics that come from

YOUR own life’s patterns:

It is easy, as we go through life, to pick up negative habits

that when real life tragedies and traumas come our way

 

Nurture SELF during the difficult times in YOUR life.  Use

All of your tools in your toolbox.  Pamper SELF, meditate

And sit quietly and be thankful for YOU.

The only way YOU can nurture SELF is by SELF

But in YOUR lifetime there will be those times when

You need to step it up for YOUR benefit and not go

Into depression or have anxiety.

Nurturing SELF 95% of the time is what YOU need to do

so in the down times that come with trauma and tragedies

YOUR toolbox will be there for you, and will be YOUR best

friend and ally in YOUR life.

 

YOU are a super person who has a super mind that needs

to be nurtured while you are living in this beautiful life.

 

HANDLE YOUR LIFE AND YOURSELF WITH TENDER

 

LOVING CARE – ALWAYS.

 

Sometimes be stronger than today

Sometimes have more courage than today

Sometimes be more grateful than today

Glow within and glow without –  smile with that glow

This is all about nurturing YOUR spirit

CONSCIOUS MIND

Your conscious mind is referred to as your objective mind

because it deals with outward objectives.  And the objective mind

takes cognizance of the objective world.  Its media of observation

are your five physical senses; taste, sight, touch, smell, and

hearing.  Your objective mind is your guide and director in your

contact with your environment.  You gain knowledge through your

five senses.  This part of your mind learns through observation,

experience, and education.  But, the greatest function of your

objective mind is that of reasoning.

 

In your own city you would see the beauty in the parks, children,

and history and that is your objective conscious mind.

 

SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

Your subconscious mind is sometimes referred to as your

subjective mind.  It takes cognizance of its environment by means

independent of the five senses.  The subconscious mind

perceives by intuition.  It is the seat of your emotion and the

storehouse of your memory.  Your subjective mind performs at its

highest functions when your objective sense is in abeyance.  It is

that intelligence which makes itself manifest when the objective

mind is suspended or in a sleepy, drowsy state.

 

It not only has intuitive function, but has the capacity of

clairvoyance and clairaudience.  Your subconscious can leave

your body, travel to distant land and bring back information or can

read thoughts of others, read the content of sealed envelopes and

closed safes.  Or can retrieve thoughts of others.

 

YOU need to understand the interaction of the objective and

subjective mind in order to learn the true art of prayer.

The habitual thinking of your conscious mind eatables deep

grooves in your subconscious mind.  This is very favorable for you

if your habitual thoughts are harmonious, peaceful, and

constructive.

 

Your subconscious mind, being creative and one with your divine

source, will proceed to create the freedom and happiness which

have earnestly decreed.

 

Your conscious mind is the “watchman at the gate” and to protect

your subconscious mind from false impressions.

 

The law of mind; Your subconscious mind is amenable to

SUGGESTION.    It does not make comparisons, or contrast,

neither does it reason and think things out for itself.

Subconscious = suggestions.  And different people will react in

different ways to the same suggestion because of their

subconscious conditioning or belief.

 

Laws of MIND:

In its constructive form it is wonderful and magnificent.  In its

negative aspects it is one of the most destructive of all the

response patterns of the mind, resulting in patterns of misery

failure, suffering, sickness, and disaster.

 

You can reject all negative suggestions into the Subconscious

mind with constructive autosuggestions, YOU can counteract all

these destructive ideas.

 

Think good thoughts and good follows.

 

REMEMBER:  Intentions of good suggestions with emotions.

Do not let others do your thinking for you.  Choose your own

Good thoughts – and make your own decisions.

 

YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SOUL

 

REMEMBER:  SAY IT OUT LOUD DAILY

 

 

I AM THE CAPTAIN OF MY SOUL

 

BE THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE

Coronary calcium is a good indicator of heart attack risk since it

measures the amount of calcium, one of the components that can

build up in plaques that narrow heart vessels and can rupture and

cause heart attacks.

 

Plaque builds up can cause terrible effects on your health but

Eating healthy from a young age – and can slow your energy

Down, cause heart attacks.

 

Those eating 7 – 9 servings of vegetables and fruit a day on average were 25 % less to have coronary calcium in their arteries

 

There are several things that I have done over the years that have

 

Helped clean plaque out of my vessels and that is:

 

  1. I have flossed my teeth for 35 years now once a day

 

  1. I have taken L-arginine

 

L-arginine is a type of amino acid, and as we know, amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins.

 

L-arginine is considered somewhat essential because it is highly important for many functions and I will list the benefits of L-arginine:

 

Stimulates growth hormones and insulin that help usher glucose into cells to be used for growth and energy output.

 

Enhances physical performance, stamina, and strength

 

Fight inflammation

 

Lowering risk for arteriosclerosis and heart attack

 

Repairing blood vessels

 

Fighting congestive heart failure

 

Help lower high blood pressure

 

Improving athletic performance

 

Increase immune function

 

Improve kidney function

 

Reduce muscle pains

 

Improve mental capacity

 

Fighting dementia

 

Preventing common cold

 

Correcting impotence

 

L-arginine is needed by the endothelial cells in order to form enough nitric oxide to keep blood flowing freely.

 

Listed below are 5 ways L-arginine helps the body:

 

  1. improves heart health

 

  1. Lowers inflammation and fights the effects of aging.

 

  1. Boosts exercise performance

 

  1. improves immunity. Helps prevent infections and speeds up

healing

 

  1. helps treat erectile dysfunction and infertility

 

Some of the best natural sources of L-arginine includes:

 

Cage-free eggs

 

Dairy products-cultured yogurt, kefir, raw organic cheese

 

Grass fed beef

 

Liver and organ meats

 

Wild caught fish

 

Sesame seeds

 

Pumpkin seeds

 

Sunflower seeds

 

Seaweed and sea vegetables

 

Spirulina

 

Brazil nuts

 

Walnuts

 

Almonds

 

Coconut meat

 

Everything about YOU – your mind, body, and spirit are

 

interacting every minute of every day of your life.  The more

 

You know about all YOU – the more you will age healthy and

 

live life until you die.

 

Each of us had our own childhood – whatever our socioeconomic

 

Status was.

 

My mother always had:

Meat

Potatoes

Salad

Desert

I grew up on that food-mother never had a vegetable garden

because we lived in a city.

 

I do believe strongly that people who were raised on farms and

had gardens and chickens or pigs or beef are probably in better

health than my family and aged healthy.

 

For 35 years I have been doing preventive for SELFhood.

 

Everything I talk about on this website I have probably done over

these 35 years to age healthily.
