Here is one thing about health: Whatever happened to moderate living? The human body can withstand tremendous amount of abuse, just look at Keith Richards or Ozzy, they are close to 70s and still kicking around with all their hard living.

Now if you take the hard living away, and just live a moderate lifestyle, like the Mormons, and you get one of the longest life expectancy in America. Of course if you take all the pleasures away from your life your life will FEEL longer even if it doesn't last.

But my point is, use everything in moderation, and most people should be just fine. Drink one coffee a day, you don't need 6 of it. Meat is fine, but you don't need to eat it 3 meals a day. Sugar, again, just use it sparingly. I hate smokers but even if you smoke 2-3 cigarettes a day, that is probably better for your mental state than the damage what it causes to your lungs... (some of the oldest people were smokers, just for the record)

So instead of trying to discover the newest best thing or the most useful life elixir, just live your life in moderation, be fairly active and don't carry much over weight, the rest will be taken care of, or so says Uncle Ozzy....

Edit: I have just ordered Bacopa mentioned earlier in this thread. For memory enhancement...

Has anyone had any luck cutting out red meats with any decent results?

What results were you looking for? Cholesterol drop, weight loss, feeling better?

I encourage you guys to watch this video. It sums up how I feel about health, food intake, doctors, and the massive epidemics of health we see in the modern world. This guy recently built a retreat in Ecuador to boot.

thos shoes tho. might want, might not. not sure. looks like it feels good maybe. distracted me sorry

Thanks though, This really hits home considering all the valid points he makes. I now understand where I went wrong.

I mean yes I've heard the stuff about processed/raw foods for years but the whole combination concept is new to me. For the longest time I was eating meat with bread and sometimes soda which would inevitably lead me to feeling like I wanted to pass out a half hour to an hour later. I didn't realize these foods together tax the body in tandem more so then each individually eaten. That vid alone is worth the forum fee imo

Here are my 2 thoughts on health and foods:

1. Processed foods have been around for decades. People who are dying in their 90s today probably ate processed foods in the last 3-4 decades in their lives and they still made it to 90+.

2. If Keith Richards can make it to 70 with all the drug and alcohol abuse plus smoking and I under 50 have to be afraid of dying of bacon and red meat, then I don't want to live in this kind of world anyway...

(and most people believe in the afterlife so why are they so afraid of dying?)

----------------------------------

Now for the record, I am 6'1" 185 lbs and my weight never fluctuated more than 10 lbs in the last 10 years. I eat a tonloads of bread, and I eat way too much sugar. (I like a little coffee in my sugar) At least I use raw cane sugar...

But generally I am fairly active and genetically blessed I guess, because I don't put on weight, I can and will eat anything. I also try to do what I mentioned earlier, moderation. You can eat everything, but in moderation. My cholesterol was high a year ago and with fish oil I brought it under control (not to mention the whole cholesterol myth). So except back pains due to sport injuries, I am fairly healthy as food intake goes.

I also don't take doctors too seriously. If I have a problem I try to diagnose it by myself (Amazon.com is my favorite help by the way) and I only go to see the doctor if I need a prescription medication. After all most doctors still believe the cholesterol myth and they agree with water fluoridization (most of the world doesn't).

Hi Aquarian1,

Sorry you lost your brother to lung cancer.
I lost my Mom to lung cancer also.

I called the Kushi Institute up, to see if they had any research on curing the kind of lung cancer my Mom had.
They sent me a study about a nurse, who had the same exact lung cancer as my Mom and it had gone into her liver.
She was basically on her death bed.
The family had a macrobiotic counselor come and she tweaked the Macrobiotic diet to her body's needs at that time.
Her family cooked the food and she ate, as much as she could, even if it was only a few bites.
To make a long story short, after 7 years, she was still alive and didn't have any cancer in her body!!!!

I gave this information to my Mom but she decided to go with traditional medicine: chemo and within 9 months of finding out she had cancer, she passed away.

I was my mother's care giver and after looking into macrobiotics, I thought, I would put all the healing foods into a soup just to start getting some good nutrition quickly while I was taking care of my Mom and brought her a bowl of this soup. She grabbed it out of my hands and ate it like an animal over the sink and afterwards, said it was exactly what she needed. My mother at that time, was in a lot of pain, sweating so much a morphine patch wouldn't stay on her skin and she couldn't get a good night sleep. When I checked on her in the morning, she greeted me with a big smile saying, she had a good night sleep, no pain and no sweating. For the next 2 nights, I brought her a bowl of soup with the healing macrobiotic foods in it and each night she had the same positive results.
The 4th morning, I let her know, hey Mom, each night I have brought you a bowl of soup and it had the macrobiotic healing foods in it and each night: no pain, no sweating and a good night sleep. Would you like to look into macrobiotic diet? She said: Stop cooking for me. It was the hardest life lesson to learn: each person chooses how they want to leave this earth. She had me buy hamburgers, ice cream and candy, which I knew was feeding the cancer etc.

I had researched what caused my mother's cancer and a lot of what you have posted I totally agree with you.
In my 30's I learned there were about 20.000 man made chemicals we come in contact with and NO one knows what their interaction does and a lot of those chemicals: are cancer causing. Then I learned about 3 years ago, that now we come in contact with almost 70,000 man made chemicals.....

I found out, I had a basal cell carcinoma and to make a long story short, I cured it naturally by doing the following:
1. remove all chemicals from your home, use Dr. Mercola's air purification system, use a reverse osmosis water purification system (there are some that will put the minerals back into the water, which you need)
2. Eat an organic diet, foods rich in nutritients like macrobiotic or just get those foods into your diet. Do not eat any GMO's
3. I used EFT: emotional freedom technology. Every person I have meet who has heal their cancer, has had some emotional trauma in their past, once they have healed that issue, the healing begins. Concept is: a traumatic event happens and the bodies immune system gets weakened. The body is always fighting off cancer but with the weakened immune system, the cancer begins to take root and grow. Just as we hold emotions or tightness in our muscles, so does the body along the meridian points etc. that flow to our internal organs. That natural flow of energy gets interrupted and that gets the energy stuck or short circuited and then those internal organs do not get what they need energetically, something like chiropractic adjustments, letting energy flow again after an adjustment. So, after I did EFT, like a bunny rabbit for 2 1/2 days, I was taken down the rabbit whole and saw the traumatic event, that I had thought, I had dealt with and healed from, still was giving me some emotional responses. THen while in my office, a memory came up of the traumatic event and I didn't have any emotional response, it was just a memory that no longer had an emotional trigger. Within, 30 days, all the basal cells healed.
Went and got biopsy's and they were no longer cancerous, my doctor told me, I was an enigma.
At that time, I wondered why my Doctor didin't ask how I had healed my basal cells but then I learned, if he was to practice anything other than what the AMA guidelines for traditional medicine are, he would loose the ability to practice medicine.

I also used a couple of products: curaderm which they use in England and Australia for basal cell's but it took me 1 1/2 years to heal mine. Usually it only takes 3 to 6 months.

I also used advanced nano Zeolite: spray and capsule which goes and destroy's rogue cells in the body and also helps alkalize the body.

Currently I am helping a friend, who has stage 4 cancer, I am cooking macrobiotic foods for her and her nausea has stopped, no more night sweats, her energy is returning etc. Soon she will have an appointment with a macrobiotic counselor who will tweak her diet, for her current needs etc.

Here is a link to the Kushi Institute:
Reversing Cancer Diabetes Psoriasis & More - Kushi Institute

Do not wait, till you get sick, to change your diet.
The body needs foods that mother nature has provided, stay away from anything in cans, boxes etc.
Cook your own food in purified water: grains, beans, veggies, seeds, some fruit, fermented foods and eat with the seasons.

Everything I make for my friend, when her husband comes home, each night says, umm, this is good.
Healthy food can taste great also.

Good luck everyone,

Rachel

PS Once you have cancer, you need to watch your diet, do not eat sugar and even fruit can have too much sugar, which feeds cancer. It has been 9 years since my basal cells healed and have not had any more. I am healthy, do not look my age, have energy etc. Oh, I do not get sick, my immune system is strong. I use EFT, if any emotional issues come up, so staying emotionally happy is also important.

This sounds delicious. Would be a nice addition to the gourmet buffet menu on luxury cruise ships. I must admit that sometimes rice, beans, peas, lentils etc get a little boring, despite the steady decrease in body fat percentage and ideal blood pressure readings they are contributing to. Plus you can raise these animals indoors and don't need a pasture or CAFO feedlot/slaughterhouse.


Quoting 
In the last few years, there has been a push from various bodies—including the UN—to get Western countries to adopt eating insects as an alternative to meat. Insects have been hailed as a type of super food. They are: rich in protein; environmentally friendly to harvest; sustainable; and, they’re already eaten, and enjoyed, in many other parts of the world.

I recall that chocolate covered ants were available at all the local corner candy stores in the 1950's. Maybe Monsanto® can get involved to create ants the size of chickens, saturated with Roundup®, DDT, antibiotic resistant bacteria, arsenic growth promoters, and Agent Orange®.



I think that it would be unethical to eat cockroaches because of their relatively high intelligence level. Ants would be a good food for traders to eat because like most traders, they exhibit a groupthink mentality.

Broccoli sprouts are easy to grow in a jar. The high sulforaphane content is probably highly cancer protective and definitely beneficial in general. Add crispy roasted insects for that extra little protein boost. IF YOU MUST.

I find it necessary to just force myself to eat vegetables or fruits when I have the urge for meats or carbohydrates. The result is that I feel lighter overall. Very hard to put my finger on the exact sensation but it definitely truncates extremes in thought or emotion. Another thing is that I don't feel bloated or lethargic after I eat even if it's a gigantic salad. I was addicted to getting stuffed too. There was something satisfying about it. Not necessarily getting full but just to the right spot where I was 4-5 months pregnant. I always wanted a baby just not like this.

You're doing it exactly the right way.
Often times people get desperate when trying to maintain a diet of any kind, because they try to eat LESS instead of eating DIFFERENT.

You can literally eat 7 times a day and STILL be healthier, feel better and get slim. Just do it they way you describe - when you feel like eating, get something healthy. Make it a big portion so that you don't get back in 30 minutes and eat the chocolate bar anyways.

So easy yet so difficult...

I find it necessary to just force myself to eat vegetables or fruits when I have the urge for meats or carbohydrates. The result is that I feel lighter overall. Very hard to put my finger on the exact sensation but it definitely truncates extremes in thought or emotion. Another thing is that I don't feel bloated or lethargic after I eat even if it's a gigantic salad. I was addicted to getting stuffed too. There was something satisfying about it. Not necessarily getting full but just to the right spot where I was 4-5 months pregnant. I always wanted a baby just not like this.

I need to find it so I can post but I used to have this chart that showed different kind of urges for foods and what you should eat instead.

Food Cravings - What To Do When You Crave Certain Food

is that it or was it different? It's interesting how it has foods for cravings for alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. I find myself sometimes when I crave alcoholic drinks it's a result of be being hungry and then when I eat the craving goes away. If only there was something I could do about my tailbone because I'm in excruciating pain sitting or laying. I think it was from the long car ride that I sat funny on my tailbone with my back arched backwards as an alternative to sitting upright and pinched a nerve but It's almost to the point where I might go see a doctor/hospital if it doesn't go away in a couple days. It's funny because I'd have to go on medical leave or get fired for this stupid issue if I had a normal office job because there's no way I can sit longer than an hour. I'm surprised this never happened to me before considering I sometimes sit that way after long periods of time trading or on my computer to shift the pain even though my chair is designed for 16+ hours of sitting.

In my office we have height-adjustable desks, so that one can choose and vary between sitting and standing.
Although I'm only in my early twenties - man, I tell you these things do miracles to backpaon, concentration and feeling 'stiff' after a couple of hours.

I usually end up standing most of the day, like maybe 6 of 9 hours or so.

And it's proven that standing a few more hours a day has a great eneficial impact on long term health as well (need to search that study later, exam in 3 hours :/ )

Maybe something to consider for you

yeah man this is outta control and I have no idea whats wrong, the muscles / skin around my tail bone is starting to swell. difficult to lay down too. It's like a pain level 10 trying to get up or move after sitting down, getting in my car was almost impossible. But you know Sometimes weird things like this happen and then go away in a couple days so I'm just going to man up. Just find it weird because I don't remember falling at all. I'm going to avoid sitting as much as possible today.

Swelling is definitely more than 'just' a stuck nerve...
Maybe you should visit the doc before it turns into sth chronic.

Your spine is not something to risk; it can redefine your definition of level 10 pain over and over again. There are a lot of good back doctors and physical therapists in Philadelphia; you should really see one to try to find out what's going on even if this suddenly goes away.


The vast majority of people with back trouble get better through physical therapy, changed habits, and time.

GMO Insulin Causes Type 1 Diabetes in Type 2 Diabetics, Study Finds


Quoting 
Now, a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism titled, "Insulin administration may trigger type 1 diabetes in Japanese type 2 diabetes patients with type 1 diabetes high-risk HLA class II and the insulin gene VNTR genotype," is shedding light on a possible explanation for why insulin treatment may accelerate morbidity and mortality in type 2 diabetics. The study revealed that giving genetically susceptible type 2 diabetes patients recombinant insulin can trigger their bodies to target their own insulin producing cells for autoimmune destruction, effectively producing 'double diabetes': type 1 and type 2, as a result.


It's nice to see that there are so many experts here offering speculative advice and telepathic diagnoses regarding a member's severe lower back pain but he obviously needs to see a professional, NOW.

I used to spend my 8+ hours in front of the computer sitting in a comfy office chair but I found that my stomach muscles where getting very weak.

It was suggested I use a giant exercise ball as a chair. Which I have done for more than a year now to great effect.

You can sort of bounce/move side to side as you are perched on its top and thereby exercise all your core muscles.

Made a huge difference to my posture and over all health.

I started making these gigantic salads with

field greens, baby spinach, cucumber, walnuts, almonds, cherries, Anaheim Chiles, tomato, basil, gorgonzola cheese, cilantro, pepper, and just a small amount of dressing. Sometimes I add different things or subtract some.

The vegetable portion probably fills 2.5 to 3 normal bowls in one ridiculous mixing bowl I eat out of but I still feel hungry afterwards. I tried adding some meat with beans but I still have the same problem. Sometimes I feel like I'm eating ridiculous size portions. Seems to be not until I have carbs and/or some form of fat do I feel full / satisfied. I've heard some good carbs to add are sweet potato, oat meal, or wheat/pumpernickel bread to the vegetables.

I was wondering if that's normal to remain hungry or If I should add carbs to my salad. I'm curious what other people do when they start to add large portions of vegetables to their diet. At the moment I'm eating two meals a day that consist primarily of vegetables. Before this diet I was primarily eating meat and carbs together in almost every meal, pretty much the typical american diet. I guess I just find it abnormal with how much vegetables or protein I can eat without feeling full.

Add a generous amount of beans, barley, quinoa, lentils, peas, or some combination thereof to the salad to get some low glycemic calories. The caloric content of salad greens is very low, too low for a satisfying meal. Even a huge bowl of leaves, while rich in nutrients, won't give you much fuel to burn. There is a whole world of bean varieties out there to explore. Try mung beans.

Best to make your own dressings using high quality olive oil. Commercial dressings are made with omega 6 oils like canola that promote systemic inflammation. Be careful, lots of olive oil is mislabeled and adulterated.

Eat more sweet potatoes. Prepare by boiling in water, and DO eat the skin.

Beets are good in salads, too.

also don't forget that your body needs time to get used to his new diet. It is only natural that after years of meat and carb - loaded meals, this is exactly what your body is screaming for in order to get some satisfaction.

Same with eating schedules - if one goes from 5 to 2 meals a day (or vice versa) it will take days or even weeks until the body stops yelling for his "usual" routine.

IF it turns out that you changed both diet AND the number of meals per day, I suggest adding good meals again to the prior level - that should help a great deal with both intake and usage of nutrition as well as the hunger feeling..

PS: good that you stick with salads!!!

PPS: in addition to @Zondor 's suggested list, you could add brown rice (or a mix of brown & white rice) too.

All the best
ST

https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/04/18/the-trouble-with-rice/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0

Most rice is unsafe due to heavy metal contamination. Arsenic, cadmium, etc, mostly from human caused pollution, but not always. For example, in Bengladesh there is a lot of arsenic naturally present in ground water.

In the US lots of arsenic from pesticides applied to former cotton fields and from manure of chickens that have been fed arsenic, FDA Approved!®, to make them grow faster and have that nice pink color.

I have been taking my chances with black rice from Thailand... who knows if it is safe.

Every year it gets harder to avoid these cascading dangers. This is at best a holding action. We are doomed.

Have a good day.

Hi Zondor,

My concept is: people need to be pro-active with their health: enviromentally, body and mind.

Thought I would share how to level the playing field with Arsenic and toxins being in our food.

1. Have a good water purification system in your home. I have used a Reverse Osmosis System for years, there are some that even put the minerals back into your water. They will pull out a lot of stuff, we do not want in our bodies.
.
2. Do not drink water from plastic bottles, they emit something from the plastic that does not support good health. If I am on the go, just fill a glass jar with your purified water and take it with you.

3. There is a product I use called "Immune Stimulator Program: Environmental, Viral and Bacterial, Fungal. It removes all of the above from your body plus metals and arsenic and even Chemtrail chemicals.

It is created by Bill Autmiller 661-837-0453
He is a homeopathic doctor on the cutting edge of environmental toxins etc.

It consists of 6 bottles:
1. Bio_Detox Formula (Enviromential)
2. Viral Immune Stimulator
3. Bacterial Immune Stimulator
4. Mycological Immunce Stimulator
5. Metex Metal Desensitization
6. Immune System Stimulator

Notes:
Use every 3 months for maintenance, one person using it will last for about 10 years.
I think it costs something around $100-125.00?

You basically take the 1st bottle and spray it into your mouth 3-5 times, wait 3 days and repeat with the 2nd bottle etc.

I was told, you might have a reaction with one of these bottles as it removes toxins.
So when I started, I did the 1st bottle on Friday night, in case I had a detox reaction. Then I would do the 2nd bottle the next Friday night........

It was either the 2nd or 3rd bottle, I had a cleasing reaction. All I can say is, good thing the bathroom wasn't a long distance away. By noon I finally was done expelling the toxins and I felt the best I had felt in years. It was a bit dramatic but well worth it because I felt so great afterwards.

Another benefit of this product is that it helps remove Chemtrail chemicals from your body.
Here is a video on Chemtrails:
Rosalind Peterson, proves they exist.

Omega eggs, nuts, olive oil, salads with meat is pretty much what I live on too plus organic sweet potatoes if I am hungry and didn't eat enough that day or to keep out of ketosis. Anything past that I treat as a cheat meal.
I only buy organic sweet potatoes because they cost like 20 cents extra and taste awesome. The fact they are "organic" really doesn't mean much to me.
If I buy rice, I over eat it. There is just no way around that for me so I don't bother.


Itchymoku, I think you should add other meals and also try to figure out what the calorie count on your salad is. When you start eating less caloric dense food it is easy to not eat enough. The fact the volume of food is big doesn't mean much.

Biggest thing of all though is to be properly hydrated. If you get use to a month of being properly hydrated you will never go back to the state of dehydration most people live in.

As a general heuristic my brain shuts down when someone with Rachel's mindset starts talking.

Hello Rachel,
Interesting thread. I thought I would tell my story about going Raw Whole Food Vegan and how it affected me.

After watching my parents both dwindle away into nothingness in their final years of life, I knew I didn't want to go out like that. Not being able to think much, taking pills to offset the side effects of other pills, constant illness etc. So I went about researching and came to the conclusion that I would follow the 80/10/10 by Doug Graham and became a member of 20bananasaday.com which supports the 80/10/10 lifestyle. I went RWHV on Oct. 1 2011. Stuck with it no problems at all for the first 2 and a half months. I was feeling great and was actually waking up with energy and sometimes beating the alarm clock up! I can say for a fact I had never felt like that before with so much energy as I had always wanted to just sleep in before going RWHV. I was eating some salads but most of my greens intake was through smoothies with bananas etc in them. I was getting 2 lbs of greens a day no problem. I was eating lots of bananas and dates and other fruits as well, but bananas and dates was my main intake of energy. Like I said, I was feeling great!
But then, it happened. 3 days before my birthday I got gout! This was just 2 and a half months into the diet. I had never had gout before at all. I didn't have a minor flare up either, it was MAJOR! It went into every joint in my arch in my right foot and blew it up so big it was next to impossible to get a shoe on. Not that I would want to because of the agonizing pain of the pressure from the shoe but it wouldn't of happened anyway as my foot was too big. I made an appt. to see a foot doctor and by the time I got in my left knee was was starting to swell and get stiff. I also made an appt to see a doctor about my knee and by the time I got in to see him my left knee was so swollen that I couldn't straighten it out any more and had to go to the docs appt. on crutches. So I had to use my right foot with the gout in it for support on crutches. You want to talk about painful! IF you only really knew... The knee doc took out 3 and a half vials of fluid out of my knee. No crystals in the fluid however.
Anyway, at first I thought the probable cause of the gout was organic raw spinach (high in oxalic acid) as I had added some raw spinach to my smoothies because I had got some on sale and bought 3 lbs of it. But later I realized that it was not the spinach causing me problems but instead it was the bananas, dates, or any thing really with simple sugars in it. I can't even eat an apple today without my neck getting stiff. So I have done some research on the topic and I "THINK" I have a rare form of gout called pseudo gout. I can not eat any thing with simple sugar chains in it now or I will get stiff and start to swell. The first thing is my neck will get stiff. That is the first sign I better back off what ever is new that I have introduced into my very limited diet. Even Rice and Potato's can make my neck stiff If I have too much, which isn't very much actually. And if I focus on raw greens I will get stiff but it takes longer than eating banana's etc.
So currently my diet is two meals a day of Raw Meal meal replacement powder with 8 oz each of the following: almond milk, carrot juice, greens juice (ie Naked brand Green Boost) some chia seeds and the Raw Meal powder. That is my morning and evening meal. For lunch I have a vegan burger sandwich with what ever I want on it, but it's all healthy stuff so no worries there. I will also have a Pro Bar brand Meal bar. It has raisins in it but not enough apparently to affect me negatively. If I'm off work, with the vegan burger I will fry up some sweet potato's in coconut oil.
It's working but the problem is I have run out of energy at the end of the day. I come home from work and have a smoothie and I'm out. On my days off I take any where from 1 to 3 naps a day and yes I'm getting a good nights sleep. I know for a fact that my body is going through a healing process right now. Just trust me, I KNOW. There is no doubt about it. So I'm sure this is taking a lot of my energy. But my question to you is, what can I try to eat that will help give me energy that won't give me gout? I can go on forever eating the Raw Meal smoothies IF I have to but I got to get some more energy somehow. At least with the smoothies I get some use out of my BlendTech blender! LOL I spent a lot of money on that thing to end up making smoothies but whatever. I just want to heal and get more energy without more gout and stiffness issues.
To this day I still have some crystals in my right foot and one in my left knee that bugs me but it is better and getting better by the week, but very slowly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially in the energy department!
Thank You!

Hello Rachel,
Interesting thread. I thought I would tell my story about going Raw Whole Food Vegan and how it affected me.

After watching my parents both dwindle away into nothingness in their final years of life, I knew I didn't want to go out like that. Not being able to think much, taking pills to offset the side effects of other pills, constant illness etc. So I went about researching and came to the conclusion that I would follow the 80/10/10 by Doug Graham and became a member of 20bananasaday.com which supports the 80/10/10 lifestyle. I went RWHV on Oct. 1 2011. Stuck with it no problems at all for the first 2 and a half months. I was feeling great and was actually waking up with energy and sometimes beating the alarm clock up! I can say for a fact I had never felt like that before with so much energy as I had always wanted to just sleep in before going RWHV. I was eating some salads but most of my greens intake was through smoothies with bananas etc in them. I was getting 2 lbs of greens a day no problem. I was eating lots of bananas and dates and other fruits as well, but bananas and dates was my main intake of energy. Like I said, I was feeling great!
But then, it happened. 3 days before my birthday I got gout! This was just 2 and a half months into the diet. I had never had gout before at all. I didn't have a minor flare up either, it was MAJOR! It went into every joint in my arch in my right foot and blew it up so big it was next to impossible to get a shoe on. Not that I would want to because of the agonizing pain of the pressure from the shoe but it wouldn't of happened anyway as my foot was too big. I made an appt. to see a foot doctor and by the time I got in my left knee was was starting to swell and get stiff. I also made an appt to see a doctor about my knee and by the time I got in to see him my left knee was so swollen that I couldn't straighten it out any more and had to go to the docs appt. on crutches. So I had to use my right foot with the gout in it for support on crutches. You want to talk about painful! IF you only really knew... The knee doc took out 3 and a half vials of fluid out of my knee. No crystals in the fluid however.
Anyway, at first I thought the probable cause of the gout was organic raw spinach (high in oxalic acid) as I had added some raw spinach to my smoothies because I had got some on sale and bought 3 lbs of it. But later I realized that it was not the spinach causing me problems but instead it was the bananas, dates, or any thing really with simple sugars in it. I can't even eat an apple today without my neck getting stiff. So I have done some research on the topic and I "THINK" I have a rare form of gout called pseudo gout. I can not eat any thing with simple sugar chains in it now or I will get stiff and start to swell. The first thing is my neck will get stiff. That is the first sign I better back off what ever is new that I have introduced into my very limited diet. Even Rice and Potato's can make my neck stiff If I have too much, which isn't very much actually. And if I focus on raw greens I will get stiff but it takes longer than eating banana's etc.
So currently my diet is two meals a day of Raw Meal meal replacement powder with 8 oz each of the following: almond milk, carrot juice, greens juice (ie Naked brand Green Boost) some chia seeds and the Raw Meal powder. That is my morning and evening meal. For lunch I have a vegan burger sandwich with what ever I want on it, but it's all healthy stuff so no worries there. I will also have a Pro Bar brand Meal bar. It has raisins in it but not enough apparently to affect me negatively. If I'm off work, with the vegan burger I will fry up some sweet potato's in coconut oil.

Hi SatchFan,

Gosh, what a story.
Got to share this, when I was about 16 years old, a MD put me on an all meat diet for 1 year. At the end of that year, my uric acid was so high, the MD told me I was in the gout range. He seemed happy about that for some reason anyway, thank GOD I never got any symptoms maybe because I was a young girl and it was only 1 year.

I am not an MD and your situation certainly doesn't sound normal even to my ears.

Since you know the foods, that are letting you function, I would keep up with those but look into reducing the toxins you come in contact with, to begin with.
Use natural cleaners in your home, nothing with chemicals
Have a good air purifier like what Dr. Mercola sells
Have a very good water Purifier, like a reverse osmosis and perhaps one that puts minerals back in the water
Try and reduce the amount of EMF's you come in contact with.
(In London they have EMF free zones but unfortunately not in America)
I go into all this stuff on my blog, 1st page: Environment etc.

Vegan with Macrobiotic Influences: Environmental Things to Consider

Perhaps your bodily functions are suppressed do to, environmental factors?
Once I got rid of my Satellite Dish, within 6 months, my immune system was stronger because I felt stronger, my body was functioning better and I began overcoming some of my own health issues.
The idea is, we want to reduce the environmental things that could be weakening our system.
There are new degrees in the Medical School that deal with environmental diseases etc.
So try and reduce the toxins you come in contact with, do not use scented air fresheners, do not drink water from plastic bottles, try to use only natural products you come in contact with etc.

Foods that increase the immune system: Burdock Root.
It is best to get your nutrients from actual foods and not vitamins etc.
You could make a Burdock Root Tea
1 TBSP in 4-5 cups of H20, bring to boil, then reduce to simmer for 30 minutes.
Since you are sensitive, I would probably start out with simmering it for 3-5 minutes.
Drink 1/4 cup and see if you have a reaction?
No reaction, continue taking it once a day but the
next day drink 1/2 cup and keep that up, till you have gone through all the tea, which will keep in the refrig.
I would keep this up for 1 month then
simmer it for 7-10 minutes and drink 1/2 cup, see if there is any reaction.
Progress slowly, till you get to simmering it for 30ms, each step up, do for 1 month.

Health begins in the gut: so you should be taking some kind of fermented foods: sauerkraut.
You may have something going on with your digestion, so you may need to build up your digestive track first.

Have you ever had a round of antibiotics for a long period of time? Or many rounds in your lifetime?
Antibiotics destroy the healthy flora in your intestines and fermented foods will build it back up.
You don't want the fermented foods on the shelf, you buy in the stores, they aren't that good.

If your digestion isn't strong enough, yoga can strengthen the digestion.
Hint, problems with the ankles, not being able to sit on them, relates to digestion.
You should look for a yoga class in your area and see if they have anything for people dealing with a health issue.
So, they can be gentle with you and slowly work with you.

If I were you, I would look for a naturalpathic doctor in your area.
They would be able to recommend a detox program for you.
It may cost a pretty penny and it may be a stretch for you and possibly difficult but if you keep up with it, you will see results. Look for one, that a friend recommends and has a good track record.

The idea is, every week we should do some kind of fast/detox to keep our body in shape.
It can be anything from not eating bread or grains that day; to just greens, or fruit or cooked wheat berries.
It totally depends on where your body is at.

Also, make sure, you are not eating any GMO's in any of the foods or packaged foods you eat.
GMO's can create allergies and much worse.

As your system get's stronger, you can slowly test it, by adding a food to your meal plan and see how you react.
As your body functions better, is stronger etc., you will be able to expand what you eat but gradually, as you test it on each food. You could start out, with eating a green soup: steam up some zucchini and then blend it. Eat 1 cup and see how you respond. No reaction, continue eating 1 cup for 3 days.
Next time you make it, steam up Zucchini and Broccoli, blend it up, and eat 1 cup.
Greens are great for the body.
Try adding some sauerkraut to your green soup, once you know, your body can handle the green simple soup.
Rinse the sauerkraut, then squeeze out the excess liquid, rinse again, squeeze again.
Add to your soup and blend it up.
Cooked food is easier on your body, when you are dealing with a health issue.

The thing is, we do not want you to have any big reactions, so go slowly with gentle foods first, like green veggies that are steamed and blended into a simple soup. After that, test it out by adding some lemon juice, no reaction continue adding 1 more veggie: perhaps onion, see how you react etc.
Also, chew your food up well, even soup. Try chewing your food, till it becomes a liquid, start out chewing it for 15-20 times as you get use to this, with time, chew it 30-40-50 times eventually.
The more you chew the easier the digestion, the better your body will absorb it.

If you have a reaction to a green zucchini soup, you are going through some kind of detox.

If a simple Zucchini soup is too much for you, go get professional help from a naturalpathic doctor.

Perhaps, some of the packaged foods you are eating, have cooked oils and you are not getting the healthy fats, your body needs. Make sure they are not rancid old fats, which are not good for your liver.
Cooked fats, clog the liver and then the body doesn't function properly.
Daikon helps cleanses the liver but you need to do the zucchini soup first and other veggies, before going to the daikon radish.

There is a great book you should look into:
Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition by Paul Pitchford

Good luck and try out some of the suggestions above and PM me and let me know how you are doing.
Try doing the simple steamed zucchini blended soup.
No reaction continue, if you get a reaction, look into doing a detox with a professional.

Wishing you the best,

Rachel

PS Only eat organic foods, so you reduce the pesticides you ingest, which can mess with your health on so many levels.

I use natural cleaners.
No air purifier in the home.
I have a Berkey water filter system.
No GMO's.
Taken very few antibiotics and it has been YEARS since I have taken any.
I have gone to a naturalpathic doc and spent a lot of money and got very little in return. The foot detox was interesting though.
I will look into the book and your other suggestions.

Thank You!

Hi again,

There is one more thing you should consider: EFT.
Emtional Freedom Technique
You can buy a book about it on amazon, they aren't very expensive.

I healed myself of a basal cell carcinoma by doing 3 things:
remove environmental toxic things
eating healing macrobiotic foods, that were organic and whole food
and finally doing EFT, addressing the emotional issue.
That was the last key, some where deep inside me, was an emotional issue that weakened my immune system and by doing EFT, like a bunny rabbit for 3 days, it took me down the rabbit whole to emotions, I thought, I had addressed but hadn't. EFT deals with emotional to physical complaints. I used it to deal with the grief when my Mom passed away and also when I got the basal cell.
So, there might be something that can be addressed by EFT.

Sometimes issues arise because their is mold in the home, or we are near a cellphone tower etc. so look around your neighborhood and see what could be influencing your energy and health.

Good luck,

Rachel

PS If you have a cellphone, do not sleep with it next to your bed and if you have a TV in your bedroom, make sure it is at least 10 feet from you. This is dealing with EMF stuff.

If you want to keep it real, you can't beat this:

Bad Science: Ben Goldacre: 9780007284870: Amazon.com: Books

Most folk won't want to read it, they would rather believe in conventional pharma thuggery or alternative bullshit quackery, I did for decades. It's a bit like indicators really, life is even more about sticking to price action than trading is, find out what you really need and not what everybody else sells you you need.

Travel Well

@Zondor What are some of your favorite well-balanced meal ideas?

What do you think would be close to the perfect meal that I could easily find the ingredients at the local super-market?

Man, I hear so much mixed up stuff. You say they're good someone else says they're bad. I don't know who to believe anymore. One person says egg whites are good and now I find out they're bad. If you look at my coffee thread you'll see both sides to that debate as well. There's so much information that says it's healthy and so much that says it's not.

Based on my Research these are 2 of the Best things to take to Clean your Arteries :

1. L-ARGININE either in pill form or Liquid

2. Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid ...based on my research a Buffered Powder formula is a good choice.

The L-Arginine will also Dissolve Blood clots , and Diolate your Blood Vessels due to Nitric Oxide that is produced
from this Supplement.

Both the L-Arginine and Vitamin C that is derived from Ascorbic Acid are 2 Great Supplements to take for Cleaning
your Arteries.

The Vitamin C also tries to heal your Artery walls due to inflammation, and free Radical Damage, But if you take in Sugar the Vitamin C
cannot do it's job, as the Sugar will always prevent the Vitamin C from healing your Artery walls...instead Plaque forms on the walls which is due to your Cholesterol trying to make the repairs and it just builds up.
I will have to find that Article as it explains it much better than i can.

I love Avocado so much so more power to ya if you can find reasons to why I can eat them. It's a damn shame they go bad so quickly after being exposed. I love the flavor just like I love egg yoke but yokes are bad. Seems like just about everything that tastes great to me is bad for me like bacon. I love a BLT with Avocado!



And I like a healthy dose of Avocado on there too! Just like the picture!

Avocados are amazing for you. Tons of vitamins and minerals (more than any other fruit). Fat in food doesn't equate to a fatty composition. Eating more calories than your body uses during the day equates to a fatty composition.

I always see a plethora of articles from day to day on news sites like yahoo about different foods and a lot of times if there is a common belief there will always be some writer out there that will try to pull some new information to disprove that belief because he gets the attention of the people who hold the belief like avocados are bad for your cholesterol. So what I'm getting at, and I've done this myself, is if you research most foods good or bad you can find both good and bad articles about the foods. It's hard for me to keep track and really discern whose right or wrong. All I can really go off of is the studies done by scientists and universities and compare and contrast their validity. But there are only so many studies and usually there are some pitfalls or bias to the studies themselves. So I just assume vegetables are good as a rule of thumb and give up.

It's ridiculous. A common example is the whole drinking a glass of wine a day thing or having chocolate. If there is something taboo about the food there will be people on both sides trying to disprove each other because usually there is someone who genuine likes the food and another who is a health nut claiming it has to be bad.

The Kiwifruit has a similarly loaded profile. Try that too!

That's interesting because Kiwi would seem to be the exact opposite as avocado despite sharing the same color.

It might be interesting to make a salad with kiwi, avocado, leafy green of your choice, a little lime juice, and black pepper. I saw a recipe for it.

Of course there is absolutely no evidence for that claim. That is not to say those foods are not good for you, they are just not proven to unclog your arteries.

Lowering cholesterol =/= unclogging arteries

I Found some seeds in a Persian store $2.99 for a package.

TQ is the effective agent in the seeds

I'm sprinkling some on my peanut butter and hemp seed butter and black berry jam sandwich.

I don't have cancer but I do lots of preventive stuff like this.


Hope it helps!

---------from a wiki link -
"Evidence so far indicates the effectiveness of TQ in arresting tumor cells at different stages of their progression. The progression of the cell cycle through the 4 phases of G1, S, G2, and M is regulated by cyclin dependent kinases (CDK) molecules and cyclins, which drives the cell from one phase to the next. Despite limited studies reported for cell cycle regulating protein modification by TQ, it reportedly induces G1 cell cycle arrest in osteosarcoma cancer cells (COS31) as well as in human colon cancer cells (HCT-116), which correlates with reduced expression of CDK inhibitor p16 and downregulation of cyclin D1 (4,5). In HCT-116 cells, Gali-Muhtasib et al. (5) conducted an extensive study and reported that G1 arrest was associated with upregulation of p21WAF, which suggested the principal transcriptional target of TQ is p53 in the context of the G1 checkpoint arrest. It has been hypothesized that the resulting upregulation of p21WAF1 blocks cdk2 activity and possibly cdk4 and cdk6 activities leading to G1 arrest. In another study reported by Kaseb et al. (9) in androgen dependent LNCaP prostate cancer cells, TQ caused a dramatic increase in p21WAF1, (Cip1), and p27 (Kip1) and blocked the progression of synchronized LNCaP cells from G1 to S phase, with concomitant reduction in AR, E2F-1, as well as the E2F-1-regulated proteins necessary for cell cycle progression. Furthermore, Western immunoblot performed on harvested C4–2B derived tumors in nude mice treated with TQ revealed a dramatic decrease in AR, E2F-1, and cyclin A (9). These results suggest that TQ may prove to be an effective agent in treating hormone-sensitive and hormone-refractory prostate cancers with a reasonable degree of selectivity and possibly other cancers as well. Intriguingly, TQ also causes upregulation of p53 expression. Since virtually all human tumors harbor either deregulated pRB or p53 pathway, or sometimes both, the unique effects of TQ on p53 protein clearly warrant further studies in determining the precise molecular targets of TQ (45). In spindle cell carcinoma, TQ induced growth inhibition by inducing G2/M cell-cycle arrest, which was associated with an increase in p53 expression and downregulation of cyclin B1 protein. However, further studies are highly desirable to investigate the effects of TQ on other proteins that are involved in G2-M transition in order to delineate the molecular mechanism(s) by which TQ may function as an inhibitor of cell cycle progression and thus as an antitumor agent. In PC cells HPAC, TQ pretreatment led to increased cell population at the G0–G1 phase following gemcitabine treatment, whereas oxaliplatin treatment augmented S phase arrest while the proportion of G2-M phase cells decreased (2). Taken together, these studies indicate that TQ pretreatment potentiates the arrest of cells in the progression of the cell cycle.

Zondor post a url in the chat and then later going to wiki I found more info and the link to the Discover mag was informative. From the discovery article it appears that the biggest danger to getting infected with the eggs is to eat food where the preparer (think restaurant) has tapeworms in their intestines and contaminates it (doesn't wash their hands properly as the eggs are in the stool).

So just not eating partially or uncooked pork isn't a preventative. This helps avoid the tapeworm itself - which would go to your intestine. It's the unwashed/poorly washed hands - think restaurant food, or a deli where the server uses a plastic glove that they have touched cash or contaminated item with etc.. At many restaurants I have seen people operate the cash machine with plastic gloves that they use for food prep.

From wiki:
"Among foods, uncooked vegetables are the major source.[2] The tapeworm eggs are present in the feces of a person infected with the adult worms, a condition known as taeniasis.[4][5]"

Also if the fruit or veg you bought at the store was handled by an infected person it can be on that - so don't forget to wash them when you get home (including the outside peels of oranges, bananas etc - before your peel). I wash my bananas and grapefruit with a dishsoap/water mix before I peel them.





As an aside I was watching a food preparer at MacD making a cheeseburger and who picked up the cheese slice with their bare hands (not a tong, or something else). I asked the manager about it and he replied that as long as it isn't uncooked meat they are allowed to use their hands. (sigh!)

be safe - eat food you prepare - eat healthy.

Hidden Epidemic: 
Tapeworms Living Inside People's Brains
Parasitic worms leave millions of victims paralyzed, epileptic, or worse. So why isn’t anyone mobilizing to eradicate them?
By Carl Zimmer|Tuesday, May 15, 2012
RELATED TAGS: INFECTIOUS DISEASES, MENTAL HEALTH, UNUSUAL ORGANISMS
brainworms
A human brain overrun with cysts from Taenia solium, a tapeworm that normally inhabits the muscles of pigs.
Courtesy of Theodore E. Nash , M.D.

Theodore Nash sees only a few dozen patients a year in his clinic at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. That’s pretty small as medical practices go, but what his patients lack in number they make up for in the intensity of their symptoms. ...
In one study in Peru, researchers found 37 percent of people showed signs of having been infected at some point. Earlier this spring, Nash and colleagues published a review of the scientific literature and concluded that somewhere between 11 million and 29 million people have neurocysticercosis in Latin America alone. Tapeworms are also common in other regions of the world, such as Africa and Asia. “Neurocysticercosis is a very important disease worldwide,” Nash says.

Cyst Attack 

The alarming illness occurs when tapeworm larvae lose their way. Normally, Taenia solium has a life cycle that takes it from pigs to humans and back to pigs again. Adult tapeworms, living in the intestines of humans, produce up to 50,000 eggs apiece. The eggs are shed in the infected person’s feces. Pigs swallow these eggs accidentally as they rummage for food on the ground. When the parasite eggs reach a pig’s stomach, larvae hatch and burrow their way into the animal’s bloodstream. Eventually they end up lodged in small blood vessels, typically in the animal’s muscles. There they form cysts and wait until their host is eaten by a human. (Pork has to be undercooked for the tapeworms to complete their journey.)

But sometimes tapeworms take a wrong turn. Instead of going into a pig, the eggs end up in a human. This can occur if someone shedding tapeworm eggs contaminates food that other people then eat. When the egg hatches, the confused larva does not develop into an adult in the human’s intestines. Instead, it acts as it would inside a pig. It burrows into the person’s bloodstream and gets swept through the body. Often those parasites end up in the brain, where they form cysts.

The tapeworm larvae often get stuck in ventricles, or fluid-filled cavities, in the brain, sprouting grapelike extensions. In this way the worm actively cloaks itself from immune cells. Protected and well fed, its cysts can thrive there for years.

As a tapeworm cyst grows, it may push against a region of the brain and disrupt its function. It may get stuck in a passageway, damming the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. This impasse can cause hydrocephalus, or water on the brain, along with dangerously high pressure. A resulting brain hernia can result in stupor, coma, or death.

If a tapeworm cyst doesn’t cause big troubles, it may go unnoticed for its entire life. Eventually a tapeworm cyst that can’t move on to its adult stage will die; this signals the host’s immune system, eliciting a powerful attack and bringing its covert deception to an end. In many cases, the immune cells swiftly annihilate the revealed cyst, but often damage occurs. The immune system’s attack on the cyst can cause the surrounding brain tissue to swell with inflammation. For reasons unknown, a calcified cyst can keep triggering these immune reactions for years after the parasite’s death.

Although any cyst in a susceptible area of the brain can cause seizures, those lodged near regions that issue commands to muscles can trigger violent convulsions. One of Nash’s patients suffered from tapeworm cysts that twisted around his brain stem. After the tapeworms died, the inflammation that followed was so severe it put the man in a coma.

“Thirty or 40 years ago, these patients just died. Surgeons would go in and see this mess and couldn’t do much,” Nash says. Fortunately, the situation is improving. Even his comatose patient woke up and, after a few years of off-and-on treatment, completely recovered. “Now the guy is doing quite well.”

Breaking the Cycle

A great step forward came in the mid-1980s when praziquantel, the first drug able to kill tapeworm larvae in the brain, became widely available. But praziquantel proved too effective. It not only kills tapeworms but also triggers an immune reaction that causes brain swelling. “Paradoxically, we produce the disease we want to treat,” Nash says.

Over the years Nash and others refined the treatment by combining praziquantel with other drugs that tamp down the immune system. It is far from a perfect solution, though. Sometimes the immune system still overreacts, requiring years of care for seizures and other symptoms. And immune-suppressant drugs like steroids have side effects of their own.

The hunt for better drugs to fight neurocysticercosis is not an easy process. The best way to test potential medicines on tapeworms is to get living cysts out of infected pigs. Nash and his colleagues recently set up a lab in Peru, where infected pigs are abundant, to do just that.

Although finding a better cure is important, Nash is more interested in preventing tapeworms from getting into human brains in the first place by breaking their life cycle. A favored strategy is identifying people who have adult tapeworms in their bodies and giving them drugs to kill the parasites. It is also possible to vaccinate pigs so that they destroy tapeworm eggs as soon as they ingest them.

None of this is rocket science—which makes Nash all the more frustrated that so little is being done. “I see this as a disease that can be treated and prevented,” he says. But there are precious few resources available for treatment and little recognition of the problem. “All of this seems to be very feasible, but nobody wants to do anything about it.”

She doesn't mention the reason that the false science was paid for and spread of it.

The anti-saturated fat is based on quack paid for science that the margarine industry sponsored and is totally false - even though it is a ubiquitous lie spread by main-stream doctors who have swallowed the falsehood.

-----------------------

by Helen Papaconstantinos

assorted good fats in food


Contrary to what we have been told for over 60 years, saturated fat will not promote heart disease. Nor will fat – despite being high in calories – make you fat. There is an abundance of scientific evidence supporting the view that saturated fat is a necessary part of a heart-healthy diet. Recent studies have exonerated saturated fat from playing a primary role in the creation of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). This is encouraging because, in Canada, heart disease and stroke take someone’s life every seven minutes.

The important distinction is to eat ‘good’ saturated fat and not trans fat. The ‘right’ type of saturated fats can make you feel satisfied, help you lose weight and even lower your serum cholesterol. Saturated fats may even keep your brain from atrophying or losing structure. Some of these saturated fats also come from plant sources such as avocado and coconut oil. More on this later.

Bad science

How could we get it so wrong? The demonization of saturated fat began in 1953 with Dr. Ancel Keys’ publication of a paper comparing fat intake and heart disease mortality. What Ancel Keys and other researchers failed to do was to more carefully evaluate the risks of heart disease by measuring the levels of fructose, omega-6 and trans and saturated fats, separately. Additionally, many of these studies did not take into consideration reducing or eliminating grain carbohydrates or processed foods – both of which are linked to raised triglycerides and inflammation throughout the body. Instead, it established the “lipid hypothesis” *– that cholesterol and saturated fat leads to heart disease – as accepted fact.

We now know that Ancel Keys hand-picked the evidence so he could associate heart disease with fat and cholesterol intake. Keys studied 22 countries, but only focused on the six countries that supported his thesis. The 16 other countries actually disproved his thesis, but he left them out. Unfortunately, this ‘bad science’ has led to decades of misinformation.

Many of us – researchers and the medical community included – continue to view all low-density lipoprotein (LDL) as ‘bad.’ As more accurate lab testing for cardiovascular disease risk – such as the small particle LDL test – is adopted by healthcare practitioners in Canada, this stance may soon change.

Eighty percent of all blood LDL is of the large, buoyant type and is considered ‘neutral’ from the point of cardiovascular disease. According to Robert H. Lustig, author of Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease, there are two types of LDL. Large buoyant LDL – such as the kind you get from dietary fats and egg yolk – floats in the bloodstream and does not damage the arteries.

Small, dense LDL, on the other hand, does not float. It sinks. This type of LDL is small enough to get under the blood vessel cells and cause damage. It can get stuck in a network of sugary proteins called proteoglycans and creates atherosclerosis – scarring and thickening of the arteries – and plaque deposits.

There are at least seven types of fat

Trans fats, Lustig cautions, are problematic because our mitochondria – the energy factories in our cells – cannot break them down completely for energy. The remnants of the oxidized trans fat remain in your arteries and start to inflame and break down the lining.

For the uninitiated, trans fats are ‘manufactured’ fats. Using heat, pressure and the metal nickel as a catalyst, ‘liquid’ commercial vegetable oils get hydrogenated and the ‘cis’ bond is transformed into a trans bond, a process which hardens the oil so it can remain solid as well as non-perishable at room temperature. While a great boon to manufacturers, it has been linked to hardening of the arteries and cancer.

Many ‘liquid’ omega-6 fats, such as corn and vegetable oils, can easily oxidize, leading to inflammation and inflexible arteries, all of which can put one at risk for heart attack. It appears that too much omega-6 in the diet creates an imbalance that can interfere with production of important prostaglandins, some of which can help or hinder inflammation.

‘Safe’ omega-6 fats include organic cold-pressed flax seed oil and high gamma-linolenic oils such as organic cold-pressed borage, evening primrose and black current oils. Olive oil is mainly an omega-9 fat. It contains 75% oleic acid, the stable monounsaturated fat, along with 13% saturated fat, 10% omega-6 linoleic acid and 2% omega-3 linolenic acid. The longer chain fatty acids found in cold-pressed extra-virgin organic olive oil are more likely to contribute to the build-up of body fat than the short-and-medium-chain fatty acids found in butter, coconut oil or palm kernel oil.

Future studies need to consider what people
are replacing fat with

When people start to reduce saturated fat in the diet, they often start to increase consumption of refined carbohydrates. A 2010 meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition was the first of its kind to stress the need for future analysis to take this point into consideration.

Part of the confusion about the science around saturated fat relates to your body being capable of making what it needs from carbohydrates. Gary Taubes is a fat expert and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator in Healthy Policy Research at the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health. In his book, Why We Get Fat, he points out, “If you replace the saturated fat in your diet with carbohydrates – replace eggs for breakfast, say, with cornflakes, skim milk and bananas, your LDL (lousy) cholesterol may go down, but your triglycerides will go up and your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) will also lower. For women, HDL levels are so good at predicting heart disease that they are effectively the only predictors that matter.”

Whichever diet choices you make, always listen to your body. It will let you know if what you are doing is right for your unique biochemistry and you can proceed from there.

How much ‘healthy fat’ and what ratio?

The question of how much omega-6 is permissible depends on how much omega-3 we eat daily. Over the course of the last 4-5 million years, human diets were abundant in omega long-chain fatty-acids such as EPA and DHA from fish oil. By contrast, diets were low in omega-6 fats. Anthropological research suggests that back then we consumed omega-3 and omega-6 oils in a ratio of 1:1.

With the arrival of the Industrial Revolution about 140 years ago – and with that, increased use of cereal grains to feed livestock and production of ‘shelf-stable’ industrial vegetable oils – there was a marked increase in consumption of omega-6 fats. Today the omega-6: omega-3 ratio of the average western diet is 20:1 and often as high as 25:1.

Paul Jaminet, PhD, author of The Perfect Health Diet, and Dr. Ron Rosedale, an expert on treating diabetes through diet, agree the ideal diet includes somewhere between 50-70% fat. Eating that amount of fat will also drastically reduce your grain carbohydrate intake.

Benefits of ‘heart-healthy’ saturated fat

Besides being a source of energy, when you eat fat as part of your meal, it acts as a carrier for the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as Health Canada points out. Dietary fats are also needed for the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, for mineral absorption and for a host of other biological processes. Palmitic and stearic fatty acids are especially good for your heart. You get stearic acid from cocoa butter, chocolate, butter and macadamia nuts. It is also present in poultry, mutton tallow and pork lard. Palmitic fatty acids are derived from palm fruit, however, it can also be found in beef tallow, pastured meats, cheeses, butter and dairy products. Human milk fat contains 25% palmitic acid.

Saturated fatty acids constitute at least 50% of your cell membranes. These fats are what give your cells necessary stiffness and integrity. Indeed, your body requires saturated fats from animal and vegetable sources such as meat, dairy, certain oils and tropical plants like coconut for optimal functioning. As fat experts Mary Enig PhD and Sally Fallon Morell point out, saturated fat is actually healthy and humans have been thriving on it for generations.

One of the most important healthy saturated fats to include is animal-based omega-3 from fish oil. If you are vegan, one can opt for microalgae oil supplementation. Deficiency of omega-3 essential fat can cause or contribute to very serious health problems, both mental and physical.

Next steps

Besides eliminating processed foods, the following tips can help ensure you’re eating the right healthy fats – not only for your heart, but also for your total health. First of all, follow healthy eating patterns. Be sure to eat a diet of whole foods, ideally organic, and replace the grain carbohydrates with large amounts of vegetables. The Mediterranean diet consists mainly of whole, fresh foods like fruits and vegetables, along with fatty fish and unsaturated fats like unheated virgin olive oil. Although it is low in saturated fats, the most significant thing about the Mediterranean style diet is the absence of processed foods, which are loaded with sugars and dangerous trans fats.

Far from harming us, good saturated fats could be the key to keeping us healthy. This month, make sure you eat a natural diet of real foods that are zero sugar and devoid of industrial oils and trans fats. Indulge instead in some healthy saturated fats.

Fats and oils for a happy heart

Mercury and contaminant-free wild omega-3 oils do not exhaust our permaculture, and superior triglyceride form elongated omega-3 fats are better retained in your tissues when your diet is already rich in saturated fats. Fat expert Robert Lustig puts wild fish and cold-pressed organic flax seed oil at the top of his beneficial fats hierarchy. These oils are anti-inflammatory, lower serum trigylcerides and repair membranes in the body.



avocados Healthy, non-processed oils: This domain includes avocados, coconuts, coconut oil and coconut butter. Use coconut oil for cooking, as it is heat-stable and loaded with health benefits. Use extra-virgin olive oil cold, drizzled over salad or fish. It is not ideal for cooking as it is easily damaged by heat. Never purchase “shelf-stable” industrially produced omega-6 oils.

Nuts: Consume unheated, organic nut oils and raw nuts such as almonds, pecans, macadamia nuts and seeds.

Not everyone does well on dairy, but if you are using it, stick with organic whole fat dairy and butter made from raw, grass-fed milk – instead of margarines.

Low-to-moderate amounts of high-quality protein: Eat organically raised, pastured animals and eggs from organic pastured poultry.

Read all food labels: The makers of fat-free prepared meals often add sugar for ‘mouth-feel’ when oil is removed. It is therefore important for consumers to stay away from prepared, packaged foods or at least to look at nutritional analysis and ingredient labels, as not all calories are created equal.

The truth about saturated fats - Common Ground | Common Ground



The AHA states that a diet high in saturated fats increases the chances you will develop heart disease, stroke or cancer. These outdated fallacies are still believed, practised and taught today.

Healthy saturated fats offer a number of health benefits and play important roles in the body. Butter and cheese, generally classified as saturated fats, do not pose the dangers that other animal fats do. Though butter is fat from animal source, it is a secreted fat, not a body or flesh fat. Surprisingly, butter consists of one-third unsaturated fatty acids, which gives it a melting point between 32 and 35°C. Butter contains 14 different fatty acids, including a very healthy fat called conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA for short. CLA is metabolized, bypassing the liver, and is associated with weight control. It is even sold as a supplement in health food stores for supporting weight loss programs.
----
Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favour of foods high in omega 6 fats. It appears that by simply using raw, high- quality coconut oil in your daily diet in place of refined omega 6 oils, such as canola oil, you can achieve a remarkable degree of protection from heart disease and stroke.

I'm constantly searching for ways to optimize my health and I found this site recently and like the way that most of the vids are broken down so they are short and searchable, and the research is presented and explained. NutritionFacts.org | The Latest in Nutrition Related Research

Thoughts?

By Dr. Mercola

The media has given an astounding amount of attention to a recent study that found vitamin E may increase tumor progression, and accelerate lung cancer, in mice.1

Unfortunately, they are only adding to the major cgonfusion surrounding vitamin E, which is a potent antioxidant and immune-system booster provided it's consumed in the correct form.

Your body can easily distinguish between natural and synthetic vitamins, the latter of which may not only be less effective but may also have unintended negative consequences in your body. This is often the case with vitamin E, the synthetic form of which was used in the recent media-hyped lung cancer study.

Synthetic Vitamin E May Cause Lung Cancer

This is what the media headlines should have read, but very few media outlets have made the distinction that the study used DL-a-tocopheryl acetate, a synthetic form of vitamin E.

Synthetic vitamin E is a "byproduct of a petrochemical-dependent manufacturing process and may have adverse endocrine-disrupting activities."2

It is this synthetic form of vitamin E that has previously been linked to increased risks of prostate cancer, along with other ill effects such as a hemorrhagic stroke and pneumonia.3 The Toxicology Data Network also lists numerous health problems related to synthetic vitamin E at various dosages.4

Many are simply not aware that the term "vitamin E" actually refers to a family of at least eight fat-soluble antioxidant compounds, divided into two groups of molecules:

Tocopherols (which are considered the "true" vitamin E)
Tocotrienols

Each of the tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies also contains four different forms:

Alpha-
Beta-
Gamma-
Delta-

Each one of these subgroups has its own unique biological effects. Ideally, vitamin E should be consumed in the broader family of mixed natural tocopherols and tocotrienols, (also referred to as full-spectrum vitamin E) to get the maximum benefits.
