Blood type is one of the things YOU need to know for a WHOLE YOU healthy life span

There are characteristics that go with each individual blood type.

Blood Type 0 positive:

I am a type 0 blood and these are my characteristics;  some of the main points and will go into more detail later;

We are predisposed to certain illnesses-hypothyroidism; which I have had since I was about 40; I wish I would have taken iodine starting in my 20’s but I did not.  I would start iodine as early as possible – it has helped with my edema(one of the things that happens sometimes with hypothyroidism).  Bladder Wrack is a good supplement-a seaweed and may help in weight control.  Our genetics dictates that we are strong,lean,productive, long-lived and optimistic.

I will go over some of the blood tests you may want your Doctor to take when you go in for annuals or anytime.  I have TSH, Free T 3&4, Vitamin D, and I am going to have a series of more blood test like Iron, B vitamins and etc.  Have your doctor give you a copy of YOUR blood test report and go over the report with your Doctor so you understand what your body may need.

Acknowledge to SELF that you want your life to meaningful.  This does happen one day at a time.  Write down what you want your life to look like when you reach certain ages.  Ask yourself, if you are 70 or 80, what do you want to look back and see that your life had been as meaningful as you wanted it to be.

My story about my sister; 2 weeks before she died from leukemia she called and told me the doctor gave her 2 weeks to live.  She said “I regret not doing more with my life, I know could have”.   It was the saddest thing in my life because I work everyday so when I cross over the Rainbow Bridge I will know I will have tried to make my time here count towards good and meaningful.

Viktor Frankl did not believe man was seeking pleasure but was seeking a deep sense of meaning.  He believed that when a person could not find a deep sense of meaning, then he distracted themselves with pleasure(Sigmund Freud)

Viktor Frankl came up with how we each could experience a meaningful life:

1.  Have a project you are working on that requires your unique skills and abilities.  And preferable a project that helps others.

2.  Share with loving relationships

3.  Find redemptive perspective on your challenges.

How do you want to look back on your life.  What do you want to leave to this family and friends to remember you.  You want as few regrets as possible.  You do not want to say:  I should have, could have, would have.  You can do all those things.  Start today.  No one said it was going to be easy.  You have to EMPOWER yourself.  You have to ENCOURAGE yourself.  On a daily basis.

Fill the Body with healthy and nutritious foods

Your Body is a temple – treat it like one

Make sure your Body is getting the nutrients that is required to keep it running like a well-tuned car

Iodine is one of the nutrients that I never knew were so important until the past several years, but in all the books that I read from Doctors they point out how important Iodine is, and especially for people like myself who are hypothyroidism.

We are all individuals and our Bodies are all different:  our environment, our genetics, our lifestyles are all different and we need to take all these into consideration when looking for the right ratio and kind of nutrients to make our bodies run as well as possible for our entire life so we can have this HEALTHY LIFE SPAN.

YOUR body is not going to function at the high level it should if YOUR body is not fed the right foods and nutrients.

The soil of the earth is not like it was 50 years ago so your vegetables and fruit are not the high quality they use to be.  For YOUR body – grow what vegetables and fruit you can in you  yard or apartment.  Buy at local farmer’s market if you are not able to grow your own.

A Prayer for Today

This is the beginning of a new day.  God has given me this day to use as I will.  I can waste it or use it for good but what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.  When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded for it.  I want it to be gain and not loss, good and not evil, success and not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price that I have paid for it.

 

YOUR NEXT TWELVE HOURS

JUST FOR TODAY     I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life’s problems at once.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will be happy.  I will assume to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, “My folks were as happy as they      made up their minds to be.”

JUST FOR TODAY     I will try to strengthen my mind, I will study and I will learn something useful.  I will read something that requires effort, thought, and concentration.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will adjust my self to what is and not try to adjust everything for my own desires.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will exercise my soul in three ways:  I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out; I will do at least two things I do not want to do, just for exercise;  I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt, they may be hurt but today I will not show it.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will be agreeable.  I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly but I will have it.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will save myself from two pests:  hurry and indecision.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will have a quiet half hour all by myself.  During this half hour I will try to get a better perspective on my life.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will be unafraid.  Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe that as I give to the world so the world will give back to me.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will recognize God as my Heavenly Father and that I am his child and to think, act and feel accordingly.  This is the day which the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

JUST FOR TODAY      I will pray at noon for the world’s greatest need,  “Grant peace, O God, in our time, Amen.

JUST FOR TODAY     I will give back to God this day before going to sleep in this covering prayer:

 

O Lord, thou knows how I live;

All I have done amiss forgive;

All of good I have tried to do:

Strengthen, bless and carry through;

All I love in safety keep,

While in thee, I fall asleep.

You have only one mind, but it possesses two distinctive characteristics.  They have different attributes and power.  

Conscious Mind                                                    Sub-Conscious Mind

Objective                                                                  Subjective

   Like navigator                                     Answers to all your problems

hold ideas here                                get reactions according to nature

Belief is a thought in our mind.  THINK POSITIVE AND ALWAYS and EVERYDAY

Mind is Infinate

 

 

Each of us have our own definition of the Human Spirit and

so today, in this blog, we are going to see what others have

had to say about the Human Spirit so YOU will know.

 

There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls

around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those

we ourselves erect

Ronald Reagan

 

 

Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit.

Frank Borman

 

 

Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of

the human spirit.  We are all the same in this notion; The

potential for greatness lives within each of us.

Wilma Rudolph

 

 

We are all different.  There is no such thing as a standard or run-

Of-the-mill human being, but we share the same human spirit.

Stephen Hawking

 

 

The main factor in any form of creativeness is the life of a human

spirit, that of the actor and his part, their joint feelings and

subconscious creation

Constantin Stanislavski

 

 

No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to

an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human

spirit.

Helen Keller

 

 

Each warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on

important acts he touches.  This is not the voice of ego but of

the human spirit, rising up and declaring that it has something

to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter

how vexing.

Pat Riley

 

 

The deepest desire of the human spirit is to be acknowledged.

Stephen Covey

 

 

Revolution is not something fixed in ideology, nor is it something

fixed in ideology, nor is it something fashioned to a particular

decade.  It is a perpetual process embedded in the human

spirit.

Abbie Hoffman

 

 

I believe in the power of the human spirit.

Bob Harper

 

 

There are incalculable resources in the human spirit, once it has

been set free.

Hubert H. Humphrey

 

 

Within the soul of America is freedom of mind and spirit in man,

here alone are the open windows through which pours the

sunlight of the human spirit.  Here alone is human dignity not

a dream but an accomplishment.  Perhaps it is not perfect,

but it is more full in realization here than in realization here

than any other place in the world.

Herbert Hoover

 

 

Spirit is common to each of us – but it is hard to grasp for some.

Religion could play apart in YOUR thinking of Spirit – are not.

The human spirit – or YOUR spirit – offers YOU the capacity

to persevere in pursuit of truth.

Each of us were born to create, build on that thought.

Build confidence in YOUR beliefs and cultivate the

wherewithal to actualize them and we are born to contribute

by creating and then YOUR human spirit will be reaching the

level of YOUR human spirit is supposed to be.

In striving to realize our full potential we encounter the source of

our fulfillment and frustration to be the YOU that you are

supposed to be, but YOU will not stop until YOU go over the

bridge in this life.

Are you feeding your organs healthy enough to age healthy and

happy?

 

YOUR:

Liver

Kidneys

Heart

Skin

Brain

Are you feeding them enough nutrients?

Organ meats are wonderfully nutrition for YOUR body.  I buy

Fresh chicken livers to eat frequently, along with calf liver,

healthy chicken hearts are wonderful and very nutritious for

YOUR body.

ONLY BUY GRASSFED ANIMAL ORGANS.  Never buy organ

meats from confined animals.

I have fixed ORGANIC CHIKEN FEET BROTH FOR 20 YEARS

NOW – AND MY SKIN IS IN wonderful condition for my age.

 

Dr. Weston A. Price was a Cleveland dentist who traveled all over

the world studying dietary practices of healthy people from

traditional cultures

Dr. Price found that nearly every culture placed a high value on

consuming animals in their entirety, making use of the organs,

blood, bones, and everything else, a far cry from western culinary

snobbery, which pretty much limits animal foods to muscle tissue

and nothing else.

Organ meat is a nutritional powerhouse, loaded with vitamins,

minerals, amino acids and other compounds vital to your health.

Liver in particular is packed with nutrients, which is why predatory

animals eat it first and why it has been so highly prized throughout

history.

Dr. Price, who studied this extensively, found that native cultures

who maintained traditional diets-whole foods from plants and

animals-had excellent teeth and were free of chronic diseases

plaguing society today.  They experienced very little cancer, heart

disease, diabetes, mental illness or even birth defects.  Maybe, it

would be best to start eating animal organ meats.

 

I buy mine at local farmer’s markets.  There are usually organic

animal farmer’s at every local farmer’s market.

There are several cook books that give wonderful recipes for

Organic animal organs:

The Whole Beat: Nose to Tail Eating by Fergus Henderson

Chef Chris Cosentino’s website – Offal Good

Liver is known to be one of the most concentrated sources of

vitamin A of any foods.  Also, Vitamin D and B12, along with

copper, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese

and iron.   As you can see each bite can almost give your daily

dosage of all things necessary for your organs and nutritious life.

Kidney high in vitamin B12, selenium, iron and copper and other very good nutrients.

Heart is very concentrated source of super nutrient Coenzyme Q10

Try incorporating organ meat into your diet at least twice a week.

Make sure it is organic, grass-fed and your nutrition level will go

up to super nutrition level when these items are added.  Go and

get some good recipes for you and your family to use.

Put chicken livers chopped up into homemade chicken soup, put

beef liver chopped up into beef stew or beef soup.  Your children

and family will never know how nutritious theirfood has become

and the whole family will be healthier and happier when they are

eating organic, grass-fed organ meat.

Be creative, be innovative, so your family can be at their highest

level to ward off disease and age healthy

Enjoy something that has been consumed for millions of years

and now YOU are being told it is not good for you.

IT IS GOOD FOR YOU and HIGHLY NUTRITIOUS FOR YOUR

BODY

Dr. Axe has some wonderful information on electrolytes:

The major electrolytes found within the body include calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphate and chloride. Because these crucial nutrients help stimulate nerves throughout the body and balance fluid levels, an electrolyte imbalance can cause a variety of serious negative symptoms, including some that are potentially deadly.

You obtain electrolytes through eating different foods and drinking certain fluids, while you lose them partially through exercise, sweating, going to the bathroom and urinating. This is why a poor diet, too little or too much exercise, and being sick are some possible causes for an electrolyte imbalance.

Some of the major roles that electrolytes have within the body include:

  • Calcium: helping with muscle contractions, nerve signaling, blood clotting, cell division, and forming/maintaining bones and teeth
  • Potassium: helping keep blood pressure levels stable, regulating heart contractions, helping with muscle functions
  • Magnesium: needed for muscle contractions, proper heart rhythms, nerve functioning, bone-building and strength, reducing anxiety, digestion, and keeping a stable protein-fluid balance
  • Sodium: helps maintain fluid balance, needed for muscle contractions, and helps with nerve signaling
  • Chloride: maintains fluid balance

hese are some of the key practices I turn to when I need a reminder (or two) on how to lift my spirits and bring more joy to my journey. Try them out if they sound like a fit for you.

1) Turn the Page
Each day is a gift and a chance to start fresh. If yesterday was heavy, give yourself permission to turn the page. Start today with a new intention, one that will prompt you to focus on the landscape before you. When we give ourselves the gift of new perspective, hidden gems have a way of appearing and reminding us of the joy that lives within us.

2) Fuel Your Machine Properly
Your body is your most valuable asset — treat it well. Much like we wouldn’t put soap in the gas tank of our car, we shouldn’t be consuming food that is overly processed and filled with chemicals and junk. We humans are meant to be eating whole foods that are alive, instead of the packaged junk and processed food we are constantly inundated with. When we take control and feed our bodies with nutritious food and clean water, it makes a world of difference in how we feel. When we feel good in our bodies, it is so much easier to maintain a bright disposition.

3) Get Enough Sleep
Sleep deprivation is dreadful. It wasn’t until I became a mother that I realized what a precious commodity a good night’s sleep truly is. Getting enough pillow time has a way of making us feel more human. Sleep is such an amazing gift to recharge and start to see things with fresh eyes. According to sleepfoundation.org, “sleep is a vital indicator of overall health and well-being.” Click here to check out their downloadable recommended sleep times chart.

4) Get into the Driver’s Seat
When life feels dull or uninspiring, it’s the perfect time to remind ourselves that we can get back into the driver’s seat of our lives. Sometimes we need the reminder that we are in ultimate control of how we choose to react to experiences before us and how we move forward. Sure sometimes the steps may take time — that is okay. There is something really empowering in remembering that we are in the driver’s seat of our life, and if we want to feel more joy, we can start moving towards that happier destination at our own pace.

5) Limit Your Screen Time
How much time do you needlessly waste on social media, in front of your TV or on your computer? More importantly, how much of your life force is dimmed while you sit there? I always find that the more time I spend being inundated by sensory overload or looking at other people’s highlight reels, the harder it is for me to switch gears and get back into being present in my own life. When I am feeling low in energy or feel like I am not measuring up, I come to this reminder and look at where I can immediately begin limiting the amount of screen time I am getting. Having a break for some fresh air and leaving the phone behind is liberating — it is a boost that can often be felt on a physical level.

6) Check in With Your Trusted Peeps
We are social beings and are meant to be connecting with others. The special people in our lives who want to see us shine bright, are the ones we can go to when we need a little lift. There is nothing like a good belly laugh with a friend or a warm embrace to brighten our mood. Receiving the gift of being really seen, or seeing someone else for who they are, has a way of making us come alive.

7) Back to Basics
If life feels complicated and heavy, see what changes when you put your attention on the simplest things. When I feel overwhelmed with too much to do, I love to lace up my shoes and get outside for a run. There is something about nature and fresh air that melts my stress away. When things get stressful to the point of feeling it in our bodies, I believe it is a strong indicator we need to simplify. Getting back to basics can include things like: getting outside, having real conversations with real people, enjoying a meal with a loved one or doing an activity you know brings you joy. The basic things in life always seem to be right under our nose, it is just a matter of putting our focus there.

8) Spiritual Practice
Sometimes life deals things that are hard to wrap our minds around and life can quickly feel disheartening and unfair. Having faith in a higher power, in a way that is meaningful and true for you, has a way of bringing a sense of peace and acceptance throughout life. Having a spiritual practice we can turn to can become an anchor and a powerful way to reignite our light from within.

9) Time Management
If life feels like it is out of control and you can’t keep up, see what happens when you implement time management strategies. There are many digital time management systems out there that can help. Set event reminders on your phone and computer. Set an alarm as a reminder to leave early. Start your day by writing a list of what you intend to accomplish, and put time parameters around each task. Sometimes we need to let go of things that aren’t important and prioritize what is. Having some control over our time management sets us up to feel like we are right where we are meant to be — and that is empowering.

10) Dream Big

Keeping our deepest desires and dreams alive is the very fuel that keeps our spirits bright. Give yourself the gift of having goals and dreams, and don’t allow fear to have a say in how big your dreams may be. When we give ourselves the gift of thinking about our dreams and sharing them with others, it is an automatic way to brighten our spirits.

11) Gratitude Practice
When we put our attention on all of the things we are grateful for, we get to experience a boost that can be felt on a very deep level. A gratitude practice can look like whatever you want. It could be counting your blessings at the start of the day, throughout the day or as a way to end the day. Perhaps you will choose all of the above. Like everything in life, when we put our own personal spin on things, it has a way of becoming meaningful and more powerful. What about you, what are you grateful for today?
