What the Health

You may have heard about the documentary What the Health. It’s well worth watching – for free, with subtitles, at youtube. Check out what doctors and researchers with decades of experience in nutrition have to say about cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, dementia… The good news: You can help yourself today.

Food of the Gods

I love cacao beans and eat them every day, blended in smoothies. My favourite smoothie is banana, carob, cinnamon, mesquite, with several cacao beans (all organic).

Googling for nutritional info on cacao in case it could help with inflammatory conditions led to this at TheSuperfoods.net:

The cacao bean is full of antioxidants, fat, carbohydrates, protein, polyphenols like flavanoids cacao nutritionthat are antioxidants, minerals like calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper, iron, zinc and potassium, oleic acid which is a heart-healthy essential monounsaturated fat, fiber and vitamins E, B2, B1, B5, B3 and B9.

[The beans grow in a pod that weighs about 1 pound – containing half a dozen beans. Cacao trees grow in the Amazon Basic, Orinoco River Basin, Ghana, Philippines,  Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Ecuador, Togo and a few Caribbean islands. Cacao is known as the Food of the Gods where it was first cultivated in the Americas.]

Both antioxidants and theobromine can improve blood flow, support healthy functioning of heart and reduce thickening of arterial walls and plaque build-up.  Theobromine can also improve mental and physical well-being by stimulating central nervous system, dilating blood vessels, increasing energy levels and relaxing tense muscles.

Other benefits offer include reducing PMS and menopause symptoms. The levels of antioxidants in raw cacao are higher than that of green tea and red wine.

Fiber content in cacao can help digestion by increasing digestive enzyme production. Fiber content keeps you feeling full for longer. This controls appetite and helps promote weight loss.

Essential Fatty Acids such as oleic acid found in cacao can lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol levels.  Oleic acid also possesses antioxidant properties and can fight free radicals.

It can strengthen cell membrane integrity, boost memory power, improve functioning of the heart, circulatory system and brain, increase energy levels, help with weight loss, reduce inflammatory conditions like arthritis, help to moisturize the skin and more.

Minerals especially magnesium found in raw cacao promotes heart health and is essential for proper brain functioning. Tryptophan and anandamide are other brain-boosting minerals found in cacao.

Vitamins found in raw cacao benefit the cardiovascular system. They have antioxidant benefits and promote longevity.

Precautions

Those who have chocolate allergies must avoid eating cacao nibs or beans. Polyphenols and other active substances found in them could trigger side effects like migraines and other allergic reactions.

Summary

Cacao beans and cacao nibs have many nutrients that can offer multiple health benefits.

Some of these nutrients get reduced or destroyed when they undergo heating process and are combined with milk and sugar to make chocolate. Hence, eating raw, unprocessed cacao beans offer more health benefits than processed chocolate.

Brain fog and depression

 

How is your digestive tract? How long since you did any detoxing? How close to a vegan sos dietstyle are you (no salt, no sugar, no oil)?

You can always go back to low salt and oil when you are free of depression and brain fog…

Here are a few reminders from a medical specialist: Read more…

It’s cheap, it’s easy to use, it works

A friend of ours swears by French green clay – calcium bentonite. He uses “green clay” for everything. Takes it internally. Uses it externally for anything that comes along – insect bites, mosquitoes, burns… pimples, itchy scalp, falling hair… Anything from a sore throat or a headache to a tumour and radiation.

What he likes best about it: it’s cheap, it’s easy to use and it works. He was so enthusiastic (and healthy) it got us interested and we’re now on our way to becoming committed living clay users!

Stumbling towards enlightenment

One of the hats I wear is no-profit online publisher. We specialize in books that inspire and encourage.

Our most recent publication is STUMBLING TOWARDS ENLIGHTENMENT – a collection of delightful, down-to-earth reflections on everyday events. Written from the perspective of yoga-cum-buddhism and self-transformation, it’s lit up with Shanan’s pervasive sense of humour. You find yourself chuckling in no time. Read a taste here…

Seriously recommended: a refreshing read for anybody who tends to take themselves (and life) too seriously.

If you look for it on amazon, be sure to scroll down to find the 2014 edition by Salt River – it’s a big improvement on the 2010 version (and costs less, too).

Enjoy!

 

Liver Detox

If you’ve never heard of Dr Schulze and his HerbDoc.com website, it’s time to go visit! His super-powerful herbal remedies and detox programs really work, according to those who use them.

I just did the 5-Day Liver Detox. It was easy – plenty to eat and/or drink, no hunger at any time – and I particularly enjoyed getting back onto carrot/beet juice after a very long time. (The juices are optional, not required.)

You can choose the type of Liver Detox you do – depending on whether you normally eat a junk food diet, a vegetarian diet, or whatever. I did the “Advanced” Detox because I wanted to get the maximum out of the Detox. Read more…

Best Lyme’s documentary

A client with Lyme’s just sent this link to what she calls “the best documentary yet on Lyme’s”:

https://www.facebook.com/PANDORAORG/posts/10152016463202371

Do you know anybody with Lyme’s – or anybody with suspicious symptoms that might be Lyme’s? Feel free to give them the link. Millions of people worldwide are not getting the help they need because … well, the documentary tells the story better.

Lowest cancer rate in the world

A medical geographer, Harold D. Foster, spent years tracking cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Altzheimers, Schizophrenia and other illnesses in terms of geographical locations and dominant characteristics of the terrain.

The place with the lowest incidence of cancer is Senegal. The five characteristics Foster found most significant for Senegal:

  • selenium (in the soil)
  • plenty of sunshine
  • hard water (the hardest water in the world!)
  • very little mercury in the soil
  • no road salt (used for snow and ice, but gives off cyanide when the sun shines on it)

You can get your weekly dose of selenium from eating 2-3 brazil nuts (organic). You don’t need a lot – trace amounts of selenium are what is healthful.

And you can get another essential anti-cancer ingredient right in your own home:

  • plenty of sleep!

Lyme’s: Let it flow on through

Brave singer Debbie Gibson has Lyme’s and is bringing some much-needed attention to this elusive disease. Good for her!

Sinuses clear!

Last week the “Endorphin Stress Repatterning” came up for a client whose life is non-stop activity. The physical symptom of stress was a sinus block. She has had this sinus condition for months now – she can breathe through her nose, but her voice sounds like her nose is blocked from a heavy cold.

We did the usual identifying of resonance with underlying issues, earlier experience, what she wants instead – and followed with a simple, 2-3 second healing option: Read more…
