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.

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!

Obsessed with symptoms?

As a culture, are we obsessed with symptoms? Does our medical background make us focus exclusively on symptoms – rather than exploring the imbalance in us that is manifesting as a symptom?

In the ancient Acupuncture system, they spoke of three levels:

  • the spiritual
  • the human
  • the physical

And guess what, physical symptoms are considered of least importance! The main thing was to treat the human level (behaviour, attitudes, interactions – becoming a better human being) and the spiritual level (meditation, spiritual practice of some kind).

What happens to the symptoms when you treat the person instead of the disease? The focus shifts to: are you becoming happier? more at peace? do you feel more confident, content, inside yourself?

When those aspects start improving, then either the symptoms diminish and disappear, or they don’t.

If you are no longer obsessed with symptoms, you will focus instead on how you’re feeling: happy, positive, well nurtured by a sensible diet and daily routine, etc. You now have a symbiotic relationship with your symptoms (if they are still there): they do their thing, and you continue to do yours – with joy.

Does this approach work for things like migraines, insomnia, cancer? Why not! We know these are invitations to look at areas of our life or within ourself that are out of balance. And if our focus is on the exploring and the changing of our old patterns, we take the symptom as a signal that there’s still more work to do – if possible, with courage and serenity and a sense of humour.

Bottom line: Take care of the physical needs but focus on the human and the spiritual. Feel encouraged because you are feeling good in spite of your symptoms!

Insomnia gone

As a practitioner, I look on Resonance Repatterning as a counseling or coaching system. That’s how I see what I do. So it always surprises me when a Repatterning session has a powerful physical effect, along with the usual positive shifts in the client’s mental/emotional issues.

Last week, a client mentioned she’d been experiencing “extreme insomnia,” waking up at 4am every day, for months, perhaps a year or more. She had also been experiencing “heat” flashes (not quite hot flashes, but uncomfortable). Read more…

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!

Wise advice from the oldest person in the world (116): sleep plenty, eat well, take naps – learn to relax.

Negative Pole Magnets: “extraordinary results”

In a Vision session this week, a client and I visited the information Chloe has put together on Negative Pole Magnets. Wow – it’s quite amazing! It made me go dig out my two ceramic block magnets from the back room and start using them again – one under my pillow and the other in my favourite armchair. I already have an NP magnet pad on my computer chair and another in my bed (!).

It also reminded me of a practitioner in Mexico I heard about recently who has given out half a dozen ceramic block magnets to people he knows with cancer, intestinal pain, etc. He says they are all getting extraordinary results, just placing the ceramic block on the affected area. Read more…
