How To Overcome Whooping Cough Naturally

 How To Overcome Whooping Cough Naturally

This blog was inspired from the birth of my son. While my son's mother and my wife at the time was watching commercials by big Pharma about whooping cough. It terrified her to the point that she wanted to vaccinate my son as soon as he was born. I'm a naturalist so you know I was a against it off the top. We had a huge argument about it as I tried to explain to her how big pharma are always doing commercials to scare people into using either prescription and non prescription drugs or their vaccines. I did manage to find a way trick her into not doing it. And today, at the age of 3 little Ethan is as strong as ever. 

I want to share with you a little bit about Whooping Cough.  We are capable of overcoming it naturally with no medication whatsoever.  Everything I am going to share with you are things that I did to help prevent my son from this nasty sickness. First we need to talk about what whooping cough is.

What is Whooping Cough?

The CDC (Center of Diease Control) defines whooping-cough as follows:

“Pertussis, a respiratory illness commonly known as whooping-cough, is a very contagious disease caused by a type of bacteria called Bordetella pertussis.  These bacteria attach to the cilia (tiny, hair-like extensions) that line part of the upper respiratory system.  The bacteria release toxins (poisons), which damage the cilia and cause airways to swell.”

Whooping Cough is a highly contagious airborne illness that can be spread by simply by an infected person coughing or sneezing around you.  Symptoms of whooping-cough do not arise quickly.  It usually takes a week or two.  So, you could be around someone who has whooping-cough and is contagious, but they just don’t know it yet.

Early Symptoms

Early symptoms typically resemble that of a common cold, including runny nose, mild fever, and mild occasional cough.  Babies (under 1 year in age) can experience Apnea as an early symptom.  Apnea is a pause in the child’s breathing.

Later Symptoms

Symptoms will worsen within 1 to 2 weeks of having the onset of the “cold-like symptoms,” if you do in fact have whooping-cough.  Later symptoms include intense coughing fits that are followed by the “whoop” sound.  This could cause vomiting after coughing and exhaustion from coughing.

Duration

Whooping cough can last a very long time.  It has even been nicknamed the “100-Day-Cough,” because of the extent to which it lasts.  The early symptoms typically last for 1 – 2 weeks.  The later symptoms can last anywhere from 1 to 10 weeks.  The recovery period can last from 2 – 4 weeks.  During the recovery period, your or your child will have a small coughing fit every now and then.  The cough will be much lesser in strength and will slowly disappear.

Whooping Cough in Children

The biggest concern with whooping-cough is in young babies (under 1-year-old).  The younger your child is, the bigger of a concern whooping-cough becomes.  Half of babies that have whooping-cough are taken to the hospital.  The following statistics from the CDC are taken from the babies that are hospitalized.  Remember, these statistics are only from half (approximately) of babies who come down with whooping-cough.

1 out of 4 (23%) get pneumonia (lung infection)1 out of 100 (1.1%) will have convulsions (violent, uncontrolled shaking)3 out of 5 (61%) will have apnea (slowed or stopped breathing)1 out of 300 (0.3%) will have encephalopathy (disease of the brain)1 out of 100 (1%) will die

As you can see from the statistics, whooping-cough has its risks.

Traditional Whooping Cough Treatment

To be diagnosed with whooping-cough your doctor will most likely do 1 of 2 things: take a sample of mucus for a laboratory test OR take a blood test.  Traditionally, doctors will treat whooping-cough with an antibiotic.  According to this study done in 2007, antibiotics are effective in causing the disease to no longer become contagious.  However, they do not typically shorten or cure the illness.  Antibiotics can be helpful in many situations, though it should be taken into consideration the side effects of antibiotics before you take them or give them to your child.  There are some really great articles about the problems antibiotics can cause. I may even have a few in some of my previous blogs. Feel free to go through my archives. 

I learned that the antibiotics are hardly effective on whooping cough and that they can be dangerous.  For that reason, I recommend not to use them.  I prefer to use a natural solution as my first go to.  If I am in a situation where the natural solution is completely ineffective (which I can't see happening) then I would consider using them.  However, this is not the case for the antibiotics prescribed for whooping-cough.

Natural Whooping Cough Treatment

The following things are what we did to help lessen the symptoms of my daughter’s whooping-cough.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is very very powerful.  It is completely safe and effective to give to your infant.  The only side effect of Vitamin C is diarrhea.  This only happens if your child has had too much Vitamin C.  So, if you notice your child’s stools becoming a little thin, then you have given him/her enough Vitamin C.  Vitamin C, given in high doses, is very effective in relieving the symptoms of Whooping Cough. Not only does it help relieve the symptoms but it can also give your immune system a boost to help protect you from contracting something like pneumonia.  If you are a parent of a child with whooping-cough, you should also take Vitamin C to help.

Skin to Skin

If you have an infant sick with whooping-cough, make sure to give your child a lot of skin to skin contact. This actually boosts their immune system!

Stay Away From Dairy

During this time it is best to avoid dairy products as it can make the cough worse. Dairy products of are mucus producing foods. Try to eat lots of fruits and vegetables!

Steam Baths

Providing a steam bath will do wonders!  Though it only provides temporary relief, it is worth it!  You can sit in the bathroom with HOT water running for as long as you need to.  Add a few drops of essential oils to the bath water to help out as well.  Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Tea Tree all will work very well in helping you to feel better.

Garlic Lavender Salve

There are many articles out there on Garlic Lavender Salve and how to make it .  This will be helpful for late night coughs.

Moisture In The Air

Put moisture into the air!  If you do not have a humidifier, now would be a good time to get one!  Also using an essential oil diffuser with either Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Frankincense, Lemon, Peppermint, or Lavender, can be very helpful.

Garlic

Garlic can be very effective in killing bacteria and viruses.  You can try this recipe for 52 Garlic Clove Soup (it really works!).  If you are caring for an infant with whooping-cough you can add garlic to any homemade pureed baby food.  I made my son pureed potatoes and carrots with garlic and he loved it!

Ginger and Turmeric

Whooping cough causes a lot of inflammation in the lungs.  Turmeric and Ginger are both highly anti-inflammatory.  I would drink a small glass of orange juice a day with 1 teaspoon of turmeric and ginger in it to help relieve the symptoms. 

Homeopathy

There are many Homeopathic remedies for dealing with violent and harsh coughs.  We used Drosera Rotundifolia and it will most definitely helped relieve your child's cough at night-time when they go to bed.

Lobelia Tincture

This tincture has been shown to be very effective in helping with intense cough. I've never actually try this remedy.  However, many people have had great success.

What About The Pertussis Vaccination?

Vaccinated or not, children and adults alike get whooping-cough.  Unfortunately, there is no substantial evidence that shows the Pertussis Vaccination to be effective.  In 2010 there was a study done with 132 patients who were diagnosed with Whooping Cough.  81% of these patients were fully vaccinated. Whether or not you vaccinate your children, just remember to be mindful of others around you that may be sick.  Wash your hands frequently, drink a lot of water, and make sure you are getting a good amount of Vitamin C in your system (especially during cold and flu season).  There is a very informative article by Dr. Mercola about the Pertussis vaccination that you can Google.  He also gives many more natural remedies for dealing with Whooping Cough.

My hopes are that you and your family never encounter this terrible illness.  It really can be miserable. However, if you do, I hope that some of these remedies are helpful for you!  If you have already dealt with whooping-cough, are there any natural remedies that you would recommend?  I would love to hear about it.  Leave a comment below and let me know!

Allergies can cause weight gain. Yes it's true!!!!

Allergies have reached epidemic proportions. 

They now affect at least a third of all Americans. (I am one of them.). Children are developing more allergies for the same reasons their parents are: increasing exposure to toxins like synthetic fragrances in their homes; killing of good digestive bacteria by antibiotics, pesticides, and herbicides; and using antibacterial soaps and cleaning products.

The most common allergic responses are sneezing, itching, watery eyes, coughing, wheezing, and digestion problems. These are all attempts by your body to remove the things that are toxic. 

However, there are other symptoms that people don’t usually recognize as being related to allergies, like fatigue, weight gain, joint and muscle pain, heartburn, brain fog, and mood disorders. These result from the systemic inflammation that allergies create. 

For example, weight gain is often related to allergies. When you have an allergic reaction, your body releases over 200 chemicals into your tissues. Some of these actually make fat cells grow larger. This is why people with allergies are more likely to gain weight.

This inflammation can also produce a wide range of symptoms that mimic other diseases, including fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, ADHD, arthritis, and even lupus. 

This is why allergies are an epidemic. You should be tested for your allergies and adjust your lifestyle accordingly. Not only for your own health but for the loved ones in your life.

Little things make a big difference

It is very important this remedy to be consumed regularly. Also, go to the doctor to check the effect on your body.

Here are some Japanese health secrets that you might want to know

The overwhelming majority of this information is different for what we've been taught in the states. And a few are things you might already know but either way it's good reading and worth learning. The Japanese are on to something. Let's get started why don't we.

While eating a nutritious diet plan, working out and drinking plenty of water are typically universal methods to remain healthy and healthy, each and every culture has a few of their own concepts on ways to preserve a healthy figure. In Japan, there are 4 essential guidelines that lots of people follow to stay healthy, and you might just discover them useful in your very own health and wellness journey!

1. If You Consume Food Like a Sumo Wrestler, You Will Look like a Sumo Wrestler

Sumo wrestlers aren't big breakfast-eaters. They start power training very first thing in the early morning, then follow up with a massive lunch in the afternoon. After that, it's time for bed. They eat two big meals, two times a day. If this comparison is a little tough to follow, it can be phrased  ore simply: No matter how much you exercise, if your eating routines aren't on point, you're likely to put on weight. Consuming overly large parts, or choosing processed food over healthy food will exceed the amount of time and effort you put into working out. Stabilize your diet plan, exercise and sleep patterns to preserve a healthy weight and way of life.

2. Heat is Life

The concept that heat is life translates to the concept that food is an energy we consume in order to make it through. Vegetables and fruits that flourish in the summertime assist in cooling the body and permit it to adapt to the summer heat, while foods that grow in the winter season typically consist of more calories to keep our bodies warm in cold seasons. While consuming raw vegetables, fruits and greens is the start to a healthy diet plan, the body might need warmer foods on occasion, so eating a variety of healthy foods is the very best way to make sure that your body is getting the nutrients it has to stay healthy and strong.

3. Prevent Drinking Liquids Throughout Your Meal

Many individuals in Japan avoid drinking any kind of liquid while consuming food, as they think it to be bad for digestion. Liquid cools the body, so consuming takes away from the warmth the body is getting by eating. Some scientists believe that water neutralizes the acid that the stomach produces for food digestion, causing the body to need more energy to complete the process. You can also provide your body with liquids through the food you eat, such as fruits, vegetables and soup.

4. A Hot Bath Extends Your Life

Who doesn't love a hot bath? It relaxes your muscles, enhances your blood circulation and leaves you feeling calm and stress totally free. Lots of Japanese people swear by taking a hot bath on a regular basis for clearer skin, improved food digestion, and ultimately, an extended life. The perfect temperature level is believed to be 100-104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Many Americans are set on the concept that calories are the primary offender when it comes to weight reduction or weight gain, so a few of the ideas discussed above may appear strange. However when the World Health Organization determined the statistics in countries where individuals live the longest completely health, Japan came out on top at 74.5 years. They have to be doing something right!

5 reasons to drink lemon water

There has been a lot of talk about the benefits of drinking “lemon water” – that is, water with some fresh lemon juice
squeezed into it. We found a nice blog which lists 5 Reasons To Drink Lemon Juice In The Morning!

So, what is all the fuss about with this lemon water thing that everyone is doing all of a sudden?

 

The most common thing you will hear is that despite being acidic, lemon juice is alkalinizing or “alkaline forming” and cleansing for the system – and that in an alkaline system, diseases such as cancer cannot proliferate. That’s the simplified theory, anyway – and I’m sure that the part about cancer remains “unproven”.

For those who don’t fully understand what “alkalinizing” means, here’s a brief not-too-technical explanation: Acidity and its opposite, alkalinity, are measured on a scale called the pH scale. (It is supposed to be written that way, with the small p and the capital H.) The lowest pH theoretically possible is 0 – for example concentrated hydrochloric acid solution has a pH of 0. The highest pH possible is 14, for example concentrated sodium hydroxide solution. Pure distilled water is pH7 – and anything below 7 is said to be “acidic”. Anything above 7 is said to be “alkaline”. Lemon juice, when pure, has a pH of around 2.2 to 2.4, depending on ripeness – however the more diluted it is, the more the pH shifts towards 7.

Something that is alkalinizing is something that causes the pH of the environment in which it resides to increase. Where it gets really interesting – and a little more complex – is when we realize that the actual acid content of the food doesn’t determine per se whether or not it’s acid-forming or alkaline-forming after the body metabolizes it! And it just so happens that lemons are highly alkaline-forming.

Lemon water is considered by many to be a magnificent “detox drink” and it is one of the things that is served when you visit the spa. It’s good to stay hydrated, especially at the sauna or during typical bodywork practices such as massage… and the lemon water is thought to assist with removal of toxins, in addition to supporting vital organs such as the liver, kidneys and gall bladder. It’s thought that lemon water will flush and cleanse the system – especially when taken first thing upon waking.

Note that other citrus fruits (and other fruits) are considered beneficial in water also. Oranges, grapefruit, lime and other citrus are alkalinizing, though not as strongly as lemons.

Another interesting thing to be aware of is that refined sugars are acid-forming in the body and are reported to create conditions which are preferable to pathogens. So let’s dump the sugar drinks! I did this several years ago and have never looked back! If you’re really into your detox waters, you might also want to check out this post where we featured a more “advanced” detox water with a few ingredients.

Apricot Kernels and the benefits of Vitamin B17

We live in a society constantly making great strides in the medical and scientific arenas, but our greatest enemy – Cancer – still seems to have us on the ropes.

Modern cancer treatments often have terrible side effects and can even sometimes be fatal to the patient. Yet there’s an interesting natural remedy for cancer that has been all but forgotten… or possibly even, hushed up?

It’s found in apricot kernels.

The natural treatment I’m talking about is Vitamin B17.

This vitamin isn’t quite what you think. In fact, despite the name, it’s not even a vitamin: it has several other names like laetrile, amygdalin, purasin, and laevorotatory. It has two main components, which are glucose and hydrogen cyanide.

Yes, cyanide. But fear not: The amounts in laetrile are miniscule, and research suggests it would take about 65 apricot seeds in a day –on the low end– to become fatal.

What can it do to you, then? Numerous people have claimed that it may help eliminate cancer cells. The proposed mechanism of action is that the glucose enters the cancerous cells, and the cyanide and benzaldahyde (another component) work together to kill the cell.

Now allowing cyanide into our bodies doesn’t tend to sit well with most people, but weighing the options makes exactly what’s being done clearer. Cancer frequently kills, and is toxic to you too. It’s being claimed that this notably less toxic substance can destroy it, and has very few fatal cases.

The Cover-Up:

There’s a reason there isn’t much published research on the effects of using laetrile/B17 to battle cancer, and it’s rather convoluted.

There have been alternative cancer doctors prescribing the usage of laetrile for a while, but as a cancer treatment it was banned by the FDA. And here’s where the accusations start to fly.

Some have stated that this treatment was deliberately suppressed because it would destroy profits. Why would they support a treatment that wouldn’t be “patentable”? It wouldn’t make economic sense.

What You Can Do:

Now we cannot actually recommend B17 as a medicine, officially, because our place as an informational website is not to make medicinal recommendations. We don’t do that. Full stop. We provide free information about alternatives, and inform people about different choices and various research that has been done. But we never, ever tell people to go against the advice of their doctor or to just try their luck with something “because we said so”. We do not make medicinal claims or prescriptions; we just report on the claims and researches that others have made.

Interestingly however, it is possible to purchase apricot seeds on Amazon and what’s really interesting is reading the reviews. Now you can make of these what you will – but there are numerous people in that Amazon review section claiming that these seeds are giving them all kinds of health benefits!

One lady wrote (get this):

“I ordered these seeds two months ago, and this is what has happened with my husband ~ toenail fungus, gone! Indigestion, gone! Prostate issues, resolved! Weight loss, 15 pounds.
I have lost 5 pounds and feel more energized. Yes, they are bitter… [but]… unless you are a real weenie, you should have no problems chewing these up. I eat them by themselves, or sometimes with a piece of dark chocolate… I am now eating 8 a day and feel better than ever!”

People are stating that they should be combined with a low sugar diet. If you or someone you know has cancer, the reports we have read are suggesting that laetrile could work in your favor. There may be a lack of scientific proof that amygdalin could help against cancer, but people have taken much more dangerous chances.

Laetrile is generally regarded by the Amazon reviewers as without side effects, so long as only a few seeds are eaten per day. Compare this risk to the notoriously dangerous disease of Cancer, and it’s clear enough that many people are prepared to take what they think is a low risk here.

Could this really be a serious (yet covered-up) aid in the battle against cancer? It’s a fascinating possibility.

While technically it’s illegal to use laetrile as a cancer treatment, the seeds can be legally purchased as a supplement. Buy apricot seeds on Amazon.

Fake Honey Is Everywhere, Learn How To Know The Difference

I want you to know that this information on honey is kind of long. I shortened it the best I could but it's very important that you know this. Share this blog with people that use or are considering trying honey on a regular bases. I got into the business of Beneficial Health Living for the people. Everybody deserves to be healthy.

Honey is a valuable and irreplaceable ingredient throughout the entire human history. Its health benefits have been used for centuries, and its delicious taste has been appreciated until today. Honey is great for skin care too so Anissa Pennyman you might want to, if you haven't already, add it to your skin  treatments. By the way, check out Mrs Pennyman's web page when you get a chance. Click her name above. However, due to the process of preparation, honey usually is sold a bit expensively.

Therefore, numerous people (Especially my people is the south who make less money) often purchase the cheapest they can find in the supermarket, or the ones with the best misleading advertisement, or even the one in the best-looking container. But that this does not mean that you are buying the best product and that the honey is pure.

In order to lower the price, honey is often subjected to numerous alterations. Hence, do not let to be misled by the price and always aim for the best quality
A public research conducted by the Food Safety News provided some crazy information concerning honey. Namely, they have discovered that even 76% of all types of honey available in supermarkets has been subjected to ultra filtration.
This filtration process removes impurities like wax traces, but the pollen as well.

According to manufacturers, this process is needed in order to prolong the shelf life of the product and prevent “crystallizing”. Yet, those who consume honey regularly know that pollen is extremely important and beneficial.
The major reason to avoid this process is in order to be able to determine the geographical origin of the honey, as in cases of pollen contamination, the origin needs to be analyzed and traced.

Here's a few brands and places where you can purchase honey which lacks pollen:

Chinese honey is an example of this, as it is often contaminated with illegal antibiotics and metals, since producers process honey in this way  in order to import it, and its origin is unknown.

- Honey types sold at Walgreen’s and CVS Pharmacy do not contain pollen.

- Certain packages of KFC and McDonald honey do not contain pollen.

- Honey Winnie the Pooh which can be bought at Walmart does not have pollen.

- 77% of the honey sold at Costco, Target and Sam’s Club do not have pollen.

Moreover, there are also honey types which have been combined with glucose, as well as others which are high in poor-quality mead. Adulterated honey is the one that is not in its purest form.

Apparently, adulterated honey is often sold in the supermarkets, so you should learn how to recognize it:

If the honey you have bought does not “crystallize” over time, it may be adulterated, since the pure one will crystallize over time or when kept in the fridge.
Read labels: Always read the label on the honey, and if it contains commercial glucose or high fructose corn syrup, avoid it.
Add some iodine drops in a glass of water and add some honey afterward. Your honey has been adulterated with flour or starch in case it turns blue.

Add a couple drops of vinegar in a glass of water with honey. If this creates foam, your honey has been adulterated with plaster.

Burn the honey with phosphorus or a match, and if it ignites, it is pure honey.

Put a spoon of honey in a glass of water. In case the honey does not dissolve, it is pure. Fake honey or poor-quality honey dissolves in water.

These 4 Natural Remedies Will Repair Receding Gums

If you have ever experienced issues with receding gums, then you know that it can be quite a serious problem which causes not only pain, but also the incidence of gaps, or pockets, between the gum line and teeth, which are a perfect place for the accumulation of dangerous bacteria.

Receding gums can further on cause severe damage to the supporting tissue and bone structure of the teeth, and eventually, a tooth loss.

One of the reason for the gums to begin receding is being a little too zealous with the routine of cleaning the teeth.

Smoking is another cause of receding gums. Simple Steps Dental claims that this habit is one of the strongest influences in the development of various gum issues, such as receding gums.

Fortunately, there are some natural ways to struggle with this problem. However, note that they will be effective as long as you start using them in the initial stages of the disease, not too late when the only solution is surgery. Then, you will need to cure the issue with gum tissue grafts and other expensive methods.

If you notice some symptoms of receding gum line, such as bad breath, swollen gums, pain at the gum line, or bleeding while flossing or brushing the teeth, you can benefit a lot from the treatment with these natural remedies, and prevent further complications:

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has been used in numerous natural treatments of bleeding gums, swelling or recession for centuries. One study which has lasted for 14 weeks, conducted at the University of California San Francisco, discovered that the increased dosages of vitamin C led to the reduction of the symptoms of bleeding gums, and vice versa.

Green Tea

A Japanese study which discovered that the regular consumption of green tea has beneficial effects on the health of the gums and teeth.

Namely, participants drank green tea on a regular basis, and researchers found that it reduced three indicators of periodontal disease, bleeding, periodontal pocket depth, and attachment loss of gum tissue.

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is a substance with potent anti-inflammatory properties which effectively cure the gum disease. Eucalyptus also has high germ-fighting abilities and destroys bacteria in the oral cavity in the case of gum recession.

Therefore, if you suffer from gum recession, you should prepare a natural homemade mouthwash with the following ingredients:

Two teaspoons of eucalyptus oil
1 cup of warm water

You should also do some measures to enhance your overall oral health.

60 Percent of Our Diet?! Ultra-Processed Foods (+ Better Alternatives)

Processed foods are a tricky subject. Bread, for example, is a processed food, even if it’s homemade; you don’t just nibble on grains, you process them into a loaf. Nut butters are processed, too, when they’re churned into a creamy spread. In fact, any food that hasn’t been directly pulled out of the ground and eaten is technically processed, like frozen fruits or canned veggies.

And then there are the foods you think about when you hear “processed,” things like soda, cereal, cookies and frozen dinners. According to a recent studies these are considered “ultra-processed foods,” or “formulations of several ingredients which, besides salt, sugar, oils and fats, include food substances not used in culinary preparations."

What Are Ultra-Processed Foods? And We Don’t Eat Them Very Much, Right!?

And while it might not come as a huge shock that Americans eat a lot of these foods, what might surprise you is the extent that we’re eating on them. A study published found that 58 percent of the average American’s daily energy intake comes from ultra-processed foods like cakes, white breads and diet sodas. That is a scary number.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, the study also found that 90 percent of Americans’ “added sugar intake” comes from ultra-processed foods. In fact, sugar makes up about 21 percent of the calories in ultra-processed foods.

The added sugar found in these foods, often disguised as different types of artificial sweeteners, are responsible for a variety of health conditions, from obesity to type 2 diabetes to migraines. Studies have shown that people who consumed more than 21 percent of their daily calories from added sugar double their risk of death from heart disease as those who consumed less than 10 percent of their calories from added sugars. So basically added sugars are killing us.

It’s clear that ultra-processed foods need to be taken out of our kitchens. And I know you're asking, "Woody,  how do you go about replacing the foods your family knows and loves with better-for-you alternatives?" Here's some possibilities:

The Processed Foods Spectrum
Not all processed foods are created equally – chowing down on Twinkies is certainly not the same as adding frozen spinach to your smoothies, even though they’re technically both processed. Check out the spectrum below to learn what ones you should start kicking to the curb.

Avoid: Ultra-processed foods
Frozen dinners (yes, that includes pizza), all sodas (even diet!), store-bought cakes and cookies (goodbye, Little Debbie), boxed cake mixes – if your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize it as a food, it probably isn’t.

Not Often: Processed foods
Things like jarred pasta sauce, sausage, store-bought salad dressings and whole-grain bread aren’t terrible in moderation or when you’re short on time but, when possible, it’s best to make your own.

Better: Minimally processed foods
This includes things like extra virgin olive oil, meats (naturally raised), plain yogurt, nut butters (where the only ingredients are the nut and salt), frozen vegetables and fruit that have been processed at their peak to lock in freshness and nutrition.

Best: Unprocessed foods
Fresh fruit, wild-caught fish and veggies fall into this category. They’re delicious just as nature made ‘em.

How to Swear Off Ultra-Processed Foods

1. Make gradual changes

While it’s tempting to make drastic changes, you and your family will have a better chance at sticking to healthy habits if you decide on one change at a time and see it through.

For example, if you usually serve soda or juice with meals, try replacing one glass with water instead. After a few days, replace another glass. Not only will this help ease you into changes mentally, but it’ll also help reduce any physical symptoms you might experience.

2. Shop with a grocery list

It’s a lot easier to make healthy choices and avoid ultra-processed foods when you have a list of the items you’re looking for. Make a list of the meals you’re preparing for the week and all the ingredients required. And if you’re thinking of heading to the store without eating, forget about it. Shopping on a full stomach will make it harder to resist those foods you should avoid.

3. Shop the perimeter

You’ve probably heard it before, but there’s a reason it’s advised that you shop the edge of the store and skip most of the middle aisles. Fresh produce, meats and dairy are nearly always around the store perimeter, while ultra-processed foods get stacked on the shelves in the middle of the store. By limiting the aisles you shop, you’ll resist temptation to purchase bad-for-you foods.

Similarly, hit the healthier part of the grocery store first. One of the things I love about certain Whole Foods is that you enter the store in the vegetable and fruit area, so you start loading up on the best foods in the store well before  you may start getting tempted by the naughty processed or ultra-processed foods.

4. Read the ingredients list.

If there’s something on the ingredients list of a packaged food that you couldn’t buy to use in your own kitchen – or whose name you can’t even pronounce – it’s probably highly processed.

Don’t forget that ingredients are listed in the order of how prevalent in a food they are. Beware of what’s listed as one of the first five ingredients. Or, better yet, avoid foods that have more than five ingredients in them.

5. Look out for added sugars.

Food manufacturers have gotten cleverer about how sugars are listed by using different terms for the substance in the ingredients list. One rule of thumb is that ingredients ending with “ose” are sugars: think sucrose, fructose and dextrose. Another is to use fancy or “natural” sounding sugars – cane sugar, beet sugar, cane juice, fruit juice and maple syrup are all still sugars.

What Ultra-Processed Foods You Should Stop Eating Today – and Healthier Alternatives

Ready to cut out ultra-processed foods but aren’t sure how to replace them in foods but aren’t sure what to eat instead? Try my favorite healthy alternatives.

Chips:

Say no to those artificially colored, deep-fried potato chips with zero nutritional value. Instead, make your own chips. You don’t have to stick to potatoes either. I’m a huge fan of spicy kale chips, zucchini chips and even sweet baked apple chips. Keep these on hand when you need a TV time snack or to nibble on while getting dinner ready.

Frozen Pizza:

For a food that requires so little to make, frozen pizzas are loaded with preservatives, additives and unrecognizable ingredients. Instead of keeping a stash in the freezer, try loading up one of these easy doughs, like my coconut crust pizza or cauliflower pizza crust with your favorite toppings. These are super tasty, come together quickly and you can customize them to your family’s tastes.

Sodas and juices:

Replace sugary sodas and store-bought juices with homemade drinks that taste great and are good for you, too. This anti-inflammatory green juice will boost your body’s natural defenses, while my orange carrot ginger juice is a crowd-pleaser amongst kids – the only difference they’ll notice is how much better this juice tastes.

Cakes and frosting:

Sweet treats don’t need to be eliminated entirely, but when there are alternatives that taste this good, there’s no need for ultra-processed versions. This chocolate frosting is fantastic atop homemade baked goods – maybe even on this gluten-free chocolate cake!

Ultra-processed foods’ ubiquity can be difficult to escape, but it can be done. Eliminating those foods and replacing them with healthier alternatives is one of the best things you can do for your family’s health.

Focus on the right diet. Not the medicine

Wild Salmon vs Farm Raised Salmon

You’ve probably heard about some of the incredible health benefits of salmon. It is a source of high-quality protein as well as vitamins and minerals, including potassium and vitamin B12, and it contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which contribute to healthy brain function along with a healthy heart and joints.

People across the world are eating salmon in a ton of different ways — baking it, roasting it, grilling it, smoking it, and eating it raw — which is safe to do, if you are buying the right salmon. The flavor and fattiness of salmon, along with its nutrient content, depend on where it came from. If you have a taste for fish, you’ll want to make sure you are buying clean, healthy salmon, and not the farmed category.

The color is a great indication of whether or not you are buying real salmon. The color of a wild-caught salmon is a robust red, which is exactly what salmon should look like. The color of farmed salmon is very light and pale in color as if the fish was sick. Astaxanthin is a bright red molecule found in algae, plankton, and krill, and it gives salmon its color. This molecule is extremely beneficial to the human body. It is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory, it improves blood flow, and it enhances mitochondrial energy production

Wild salmon get plenty of this molecule from their diets while farmed salmon eat food pellets that don’t contain natural astaxanthin, so farmers add in their own synthetic version, which is most commonly derived from coal. The fish feed used by farmers also includes fish meal and fish oils that are at risk of dioxin and mercury contamination. Some farmers have tried to replace fish meal with soy and corn protein and vegetable oil, but salmon are not meant to eat soy and corn, so meat quality decreases and antibiotics are needed to keep them healthy. Trace amounts of these antibiotics can make it into the food we eat while vegetable oils reduce Omega-3 fat content and can introduce mold toxins into salmon. You do not want to eat that!

The FDA and the EPA have been studying mercury contamination in fish, and wild-caught salmon is at a very low risk of mercury contamination. Fresh salmon is considered safe for pregnant women to eat.

This is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat Pink Himalayan Salt

So you’ve been hearing about this amazing Himalayan crystal salt for the last few years, and now you’re wondering, is it really better than sea salt or table salt? How does it benefit my body vs those other salts? Well, it is packed with some pretty amazing benefits, making it a wonderful alternative to table salt and an exciting new staple to add to your pantry.

The History
First of all, what makes Himalayan crystal salt so amazing? About 200 million years ago, there were crystallized sea salt beds that were covered with lava. Because this salt was subsequently enveloped in snow and ice for millennia, it was protected from modern day pollution and preserved in an untouched, pristine environment. The Himalayan mountain range goes across Asia, and passes through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India. Many people believe that this pink salt is the purest salt that can be found on the planet.

 

Minerals & Energy
Himalayan Salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements that are found in the human body; that alone is quite impressive! A few of these minerals include: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. When consuming this salt, you are actually getting less sodium intake per serving than regular table salt because it is less refined and the pieces are larger. Therefore Himalayan salt has less sodium per serving because the crystals or flakes take up less room than the highly processed table salt variety. Another great thing about this salt is that, because of its unique cellular structure, it stores vibrational energy. The minerals in this salt exist in colloidal form, which means that they are small enough for our cells to easily absorb.

What Exactly Are The Benefits?
Some of the benefits that you can expect to enjoy by consuming this salt in place of regular table salt include:

Aids in vascular health
Supports healthy lungs and respiratory function
Promotes a stable pH balance within the cells
Reduces the signs of aging
Promotes healthy sleep patterns
Increases libido
Prevents muscle cramps
Increases hydration
Strengthen bones
Lowers blood pressure
Improves circulation
Detoxifies the body of heavy metals
Comparing Himalayan Salt To Other Salts
Sea Salt

While still a better choice than table salt, sea salt is becoming increasingly processed, and, let’s face it, our oceans are becoming more and more polluted each year. Because of the pristine conditions that Himalayan salt has been kept in, it is said to be the purest salt available today.

Table Salt

Regular, commercial table salt is completely stripped of the majority of its minerals with the exception of sodium and chloride. It is then bleached, cleaned with chemicals, and then heated at extremely high temperatures. The iodine that is added to table salt is almost always synthetic, which is difficult for our bodies absorb properly. It is treated with anti-caking agents, which prevents the salt from dissolving in water and clumping in the salt container. These agents then prevent the salt from absorbing into our own bodies, which leads to a buildup and deposit within the organs. This can cause severe health problems. Studies have shown that for each gram of table salt that is consumed that the body cannot process, your body will use 20 TIMES the amount of cellular water to neutralize the amount of sodium chloride that is present in this chemically treated salt.

This is largely the reason why salt has gotten such a bad name over the years. It is not necessarily salt that is unhealthy for us, but rather refined table salt that is inferior for our health. Aside from that, many of us are consuming way too much processed food. These foods contain astronomical amounts of salt, and it isn’t the good kind. It’s not about limiting our intake of salt; it’s about consuming more natural, homemade, whole foods. This way we can add salt while cooking or sprinkle some on our meals without having to worry about high blood pressure and so on.

Himalayan Salt Uses
Cooking and curing — Always use pre-ground salt or grinders like any other kind of salt.

Salt Slabs — Slabs will impart a better taste and mineral content. Chilled: use fruits, sushi, veggies, or cheese as a decoration. Frozen: cold delicious desserts and sorbets. Heated: slabs can be used to sear veggies, shrimp, fish fillets, and thinly sliced beef, and you can even fry eggs. Dense salt blocks conduct heat amazingly.

What is even better, Himalayan salt is a natural anti-microbial product, and the clean up requires only a simple scrub or rinse.

Bathing — Enjoy a detoxifying Himalayan salt bath. Its nutrients will stimulate your circulation and soothe sore muscles. Himalayan salt contains 80+ nourishing and skin-friendly minerals, so this bath will provide a healing and amazingly therapeutic experience for both body and soul.

Air purification — You can also find crystal rock lamps on-line.

You should be able to find this amazing Himalayan Crystal Salt at your local health food store or online.

If you are not otherwise advised by your GP, you should not use these remedies for more than 14 days without a pause.

Are Vaccine Manufacturers Held Accountable for Vaccine Injuries???

Vaccine Manufacturers are not Held Accountable for Vaccine Injuries

In 1986, the Childhood Vaccine Injury Act made vaccine manufacturers immune from all prosecution due to vaccines. Instead of holding the manufacturers accountable, vaccines are taxed, and these taxes go to the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.9 In order to receive compensation for vaccine injury, one must win in Vaccine Court. Vaccine Court is a rigged system of compensation designed to protect the vaccine industry and deny claims brought forth by parents and family members of dead and crippled children and adults. There is a better than 80% chance that a claim will be denied by vaccine court. If claims are paid out, compensation rarely covers medical expenses. If a vaccine kills, the maximum payout is $250,000.10 Isn’t human life worth more than a quarter of a million dollars?

Adverse reactions to vaccines can also result in agonizing, rare, exotic, and crippling diseases. A few examples of these are Guillain Barre Syndrome (an immune disorder in which the body attacks the nervous system), Transverse Myelitis (a neurological disorder which can result in paralysis, urinary retention, and loss of bowel control), Miller Fisher Syndrome (which can result in respiratory failure, abnormal muscle coordination, and a myriad of other symptoms) and Intussusception (which is caused by the intestine being pulled inward, onto itself, which can be fatal, and it is always excruciating).11

The payouts awarded by vaccine court vary on a case-by-case basis. When considering how miserable these diseases make people, and how expensive treatment is, one would think the compensation would be greater. The following payouts were advertised by Maglio, Christopher, and Toale, P.A.:12

From 2010 through 2015, this law firm won 11 cases that included death. The smallest payout was $100,000 and the largest payout was $400,000. The average payout was $218,792.50. Cases with a payout over $250,000 included payment for injuries as well.
From January through November 2015, this law firm won 46 cases that included Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). The smallest payout for GBS was $60,000 and the largest payout was $807,000. The average payout was $215,829.70.
From January through November 2015, this law firm won 6 cases related to Transverse Myelitis. The smallest payout was $85,000 and the largest payout was $537,500. The average payout was $184,750.
From January through November 2015, this law firm won 2 cases related to Miller Fisher Syndrome. Each had a payout of $125,000.
From January through November 2015, this law firm won 1 case related to Intussusception. It was awarded an annuity totaling $58,106 to be paid over four years as well as an additional lump sum of $10,221.19 to cover a Kentucky Medicaid lien.
The Anti-Vaccine Movement is a Fad

Objections to inoculation and vaccination have been around for as long as inoculation and vaccination have been practiced. Typically, when we hear the term conscientious objector we think of someone who is opposed to military service during wartime. Centuries ago, the term referred to someone who was opposed to getting inoculated, or getting their children inoculated. The anti-vaccine movement is an old movement, and it is not going away. We will not be silenced, and we know the truth is on our side. We know it is only a matter of time before the truth about vaccines is known by the majority of people, not just by a select few who have taken the time to do the research.

Why Does Organic Food have to carry the adjective???

You can call anything "food" if you pay enough money to Washington for them to allow it. Can somebody tell me how GMO foods get the right to be called just food? And the uneducated sees it as fact and just like the Matrix, once the mind reaches a certain age, people will actually fight to defend it. What a shame.

You Need To Know This Before You Eat At Subway Again

Subway's deception. Here is what you must know before you eat at Subway again. "Subway Eat Fresh???????
Yeah right!!! Believe that if you want to. Have you ever seen them slice meat in the store? I know I haven't. And even though they bake the bread there, it's even worst and I will explain in this blog.

Subway has been lying to their customers for years! You are not eating fresh at Subway!

Let me give you a brief history lesson on Subway and how they got start to where they are at today.

Subway was started in 1965 by a 17-year-old, named Fred DeLuca, who wanted to make extra money to pay for his college tuition.  He borrowed $1,000 from a family friend, Peter Buck, who would later become his business partner.  Their food has always been marketed as being fresh and healthy.  The Subway chain is now owned by Doctors Associates, Inc., which in turn is still owned by Peter and Fred.  Neither of which are medical doctors, by the way.  From what we can tell, Doctor’s Associates, Inc. does nothing more than own Subway, and gives the misleading impression that doctors are being consulted about the nutritional value of Subway’s foods.  In fact, there appears to be no doctors involved with Doctor’s Associates, Inc. at all, and Subway no longer offers fresh and healthy alternatives.

Most people give Subway the benefit of the doubt concerning their food items; assuming that they do the best that they can to provide healthy alternatives.  However, did you know that the 9-grain whole wheat bread that looks and smells freshly baked contains around 50 ingredients including refined flour, conditioners, MSG, refined sugar and more? Me either! How can a bread so processed ever come close to being a real food?
See if you can read and know any of these ingredients list.

Italian (white) Bread: Enriched flour (wheat flour, barley malt, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, sugar, contains less than 2% of the following: soybean oil, fermented wheat flour, yeast, salt, wheat protein isolate, wheat gluten, dough conditioners (acetylated tartaric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides, ammonium sulfate, calcium sulfate, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, potassium iodate, amylase [enzymes]), sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate, lactic acid, sulfites, mineral oil.

Even the bread at Subway is toxic.  Instead of using olive, sunflower, or peanut oil, they chose to use soybean oil.

When we look at all the Subway veggies, like the peppers and pickles, they all look so bright,  and appetizing. Do you think it’s all the artificial colors that make it look that way? Before I forget, (one of my favorite ingredients to put on my sandwich at subway) the black olives contain an additive called ferrous gluconate. Its only purpose is to keep the olives black

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is virtually a cure it all and here is a long list of things it can cure.

Apple Cider Vinegar, the Wonder ‘Drug’ of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

ARTHRITIS:

Use the cider vinegar and honey treatment for arthritis and also apply cider vinegar externally to painful joints. This entails drinking a glass of water with two teaspoons of cider vinegar and two teaspoons of honey three times a day. Local treatment can also be given by soaking the arthritic hand, or foot in a strong, comfortably hot solution of cider vinegar for ten minutes, two or three times a day – (a quarter of a cup of cider vinegar to one and a half cups of water). Arthritic knees can be attended to by making a poultice – soak the cloth in a mixture of cider vinegar and water, (as per above mixture) wring out and wrap it around the joint, then secure with a dry cloth to retain heat. When the wet cloth cools, it should be wrung out in the hot solution and applied afresh. Repeat several times, twice daily.

ASTHMA:

One tablespoonful of cider vinegar added to a glass of water should be taken in sips for half an hour. After a further half an hour has elapsed the treatment should be repeated. The wheezing should lessen in intensity quite considerably. However, should wheezing still persist a second glass of the same mixture should be taken. Deep breathing exercises are also a beneficial treatment.

BLOOD LOSS:

It has been discussed above how cider vinegar helps in preventing blood losses. In any circumstances where the flow of blood is too free and is too persistent, such as when a person has a nose bleed without any apparent reason, then two teaspoons of cider vinegar in a glass of water, three times a day will aid in restoring the natural clotting properties of the blood.

COLITIS:

The cider vinegar and honey treatment has been used effectively in the treatment for colitis. Take the normal dosage of two teaspoons cider vinegar and honey with water, three times a day. An enema of a teaspoonful or more of molasses is also very helpful.

COUGHS:

There are many types of coughs for various reasons, and these should be treated with reference to their nature and intensity. However, the cider vinegar and honey treatment will prove an efficacious treatment in this respect. Two teaspoons of cider vinegar and two of honey mixed with a glassful of water should be taken before meals, or when the irritation occurs. In the evening it would be an idea to have this mixture by your bed so that it can be sipped during the evening if an attack presents itself.

DIARRHEA:

It has been mentioned above how cider vinegar helps with the digestion, assimilation and elimination of food, and that it is an antiseptic to the intestines and the whole of the digestive tract. Due to it’s healing properties, diarrhoea can be controlled in a very short time, (that is unless some serious physical disorder is apparent). The treatment being, one teaspoonful of cider vinegar in a glass of water should be taken before and inbetween meals i.e. approximately six glasses during the course of the day. It should be noted, however, that diarrhoea is a natural attempt on the part of the body to eliminate some poison which is irritating the digestive tract, on no account should any drugs be taken to suppress these healing symptoms – on the other hand the cider vinegar will lessen the intensity, but will allow the natural course of elimination to take place.

DIZZINESS:

Two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar together with two teaspoons of honey in a glass of hot or cold water three times a day should help this annoying occurrence quite considerably. However, one should never expect instant results, as nature works slowly, yet very effectively. You will notice a lessened intensity whilst you progress.

EAR DISCHARGE:

The treatment for this complaint, which usually occurs during childhood is: one teaspoonful of cider vinegar in a glass of water to be taken mid morning and mid afternoon. The discharge should shortly disappear.

ECZEMA:

Take the usual dosage of cider vinegar and honey in a glassful of water three times a day, with meals. An application of well diluted cider vinegar can also be applied to the skin several times daily i.e. oneteaspoonful to half a cup of water. Under no circumstances should salt be taken, as this aggravates the eczema condition considerably. There is usually a potassium deficiency in those people suffering from eczema.

EYES (TIRED AND SORE):

The apple cider vinegar therapy together with honey is the essential ingredients here. Two teaspoons of each taken in a glassful of water, three times a day. This mixture retards the onset of tired and sore eyes which are usually apparent in later life, as it supplies them with those vital elements essential to their health and functioning.

FATIGUE:

Chronic fatigue is a warning that the body needs some attention. Most people suffering from chronic fatigue do not have enough good, sound sleep. Either they go to bed too late, or they are one of those people who just need more sleep than most. It is better to get as many hours in bed before midnight as possible. To remedy a poor quality sleep, honey is highly recommended, as it acts as a sedative to the body.
