Start Your Summer Body Today

You can’t out exercise a bad diet. And you can’t outrun your hormones or check ✔ out when life sends you stress. All of these cause a chronic inflammatory cycle.

The movement to accumulate less…eat food with less ingredients…take in less toxins…. balance your happiness with less stress….and of course less sugar, less gluten and less dairy are truly growing so rapidly for big reasons and I have to tell you that if you’re looking to make some changes it’s easier than you think.

Less ingredients is as simple as adding more whole foods into your diet.

Now is the time for you to join us to change your food choices, your movement and your mindfulness. It can be so complicated because wouldn’t you agree that our world is more toxic than it was ten years ago (both in environment, nutrition and emotionally/socially)? And wouldn’t you agree that our foods are more toxic than they were… heavy on the herbicides? the sugar content? And the foods we just can’t digest well.

And seriously less sugar, gluten and dairy is just as easy and really tasty. Like taco bowls? Salads? Pizza 🍕?? Ice. Cream🍦?

Yes, you can still have all of these!! And align to your Paleo Vegeo lifestyle.

Less toxins is about supporting your body’s natural abilities while eliminating some of those toxic ingredients, toxic foods (think pesticides and hormones), and toxic home products (like beauty products or cleaning products).

Maybe less stress would mean bringing in a little more money. another income for debt reduction, travel or a little breathing room….You need to know that sometimes that mood is actually brain inflammation or poor gut bacteria. You are capable of happiness.

Come join my next program as it is even better to work on personal development as a team. You may even find your purpose by working onward. I can teach you the simplicity in all of these areas. Be a warrior!! Honor your temple!! I love what I do! I love food!! I enjoy a little zen every day.

Detox and the role in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The information I learned that effects those wishing to detox, with CFS

My daughter had a lot of tummy issues when she was born. The more or less forced us into taking her off of goats milk, and into 9 months of horror. She wouldn’t nurse because afterwards she would just scream. They wanted me to give up dairy, and grains, and I was already not well myself most of the time. I didn’t see how I could possibly eliminate more food from my plate. Who know several years later I would just that, but I wasn’t in a place where I could do that at that moment. So they put her on expensive formula, and then acid reflux medication, and getting to a year was something I just couldn’t wait to hit.

We were doing all organics, and as she started eating we were doing all pastured meats too. The majority of her diet was dairy. As was mine. What I didn’t know was that there is something called a dysfunctional methylation cycle. My daughter lived on organic chocolate milk, cheese sticks and yogurt squeezers. Sound familiar to any one else out there?

So what effect does this have on the body? 

So dairy, as we know from me talking about the Ocean Avenue shake, or at least undenatured whey gives you this boost to glutathione. Some of what she was getting should have been giving her some of this natural glutathione support. The belief is that for those with CFS or those on the Autism spectrum, that there is digestive issues that surround both gluten and casein. Casein is in all of those yummy dairy products.

But WHAT if the real problem is with an inability to detox, and we’re filling our bodies with hormones and items that will ferment in the digestive tract. We have all of this sugar too. Then we have an overgrowth of candida, and our bodies still can’t detoxify. We start filling up with all sorts of other toxins from our environment and our foods. Our bodies cannot react in any other way beyond: Fatigue, Inflammation, Pain, Problems Regulating Our Emotions, Sleep Dysfunction and other symptoms encompassing the brain. All of these items can be found to be very similar to both CFS and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Many CFS patient have low glutathione levels. Many of those on the Autism Spectrum have low glutathione levels. If you struggle to use the glutathione that is entering your body – then all of these items would start being problems for you, because you need glutathione support in your system. But your system is struggling in the glutathione production department.

There is also the production of melatonin from serotonin as well as the metabolism of the catecholamines require methylation, without this we see sleep dysfunction. It’s all connected. Now when my daughter is tired, she gets irritable and is a totally different person. When I am feeling fatigued by my adrenal issues I am the same way, cranky, maybe hyperactive, and irritable. What if that is the problem for your autistic child when they creatively yell or throw a tantrum. Fatigue maybe?

At the International Conference of the AACFS they talked a lot about the methylation cycle, how it’s a major part of the biochemistry of sulfur and methyl groups in the body. How it’s tightly linked to folate metabolism (think about MTHFR) and B12 and enabling the use of these amino acids to provide energy to the cells. And with 40% of the population carriers of the MTHFR genetics, 10% where this has been activated through birth or epigenitics… and then approximately 1/3 of Americans who are missing an important gene needed to create and recycle glutathione and we have now created a mess that is going to be a breeding ground for more CFS kids, and yes there is guides for kids with CFS/ME now…which breaks your heart. And I know I’m seeing a greater number of children being determined to be on the spectrum, as well. So there has to be something more to this.

I know that this is really just me talking out loud, and you may or may not understand what I am talking about, or you may think it’s all hooey. But I think it’s something important to think through. Dr. Wilson talked about sulfur, and I just didn’t get it … until now. If you can’t effectively detox, then you won’t ever heal. For every CFS patient out there, I think this one sentence is huge!! You know more than anyone how much you want to heal up and feel better.

I believe what happened to me when I went on the two week vacation was what they call Relapsing.

Relapsing (Crashing) (160): Many CFS patients have chronically low glutathione levels. According to this Hypothesis, when the level of stressors is temporarily increased, the levels of reduced glutathione become more severely depleted, and this produces the so-called crashing phenomenon. After a period of rest, reduced glutathione levels are increased to the chronically low levels that existed prior to the increased stressors.

So I am going to work on some of this information over the next few months and see if I can create a parent/child friendly detox program that we can both do together and see what we find. In the meantime, we’ll be getting our sulfur

Detoxing From Heavy Metal Poisoning Can Be Toughest For Vegans

Detoxing From Heavy Metal Poisoning 

Heavy metal poisoning is far more common than you may think.  You can get it from mercury tooth fillings, immunization shots, poor environmental factors. The average adult inhales thousands of trillions of mercury atoms a day from a mouthful of amalgams; fish provides trillions more, the air more, and in children, vaccines provide surges of trillions of mercury molecules per day in the form of ethyl-mercury, which is vastly more toxic than metallic mercury. Insulin molecules are directly assaulted as are insulin receptor sites.

Did you know that the geometry of your insulin can be changed by mercury? If it is the message that insulin has arrived to give glucose to the cell is not received.

Mercury is the most potent enzyme inhibitor that exists; it is in a class of its own and well deserves its title as the most toxic non-radioactive element. Since mercury and lead attach themselves at these highly vulnerable junctures of proteins, they can readily provoke biochemical shifts and then morphological changes in the body.

The formula I’ve most seen online to get rid of heavy metals – a gel cap 2x a day filled with a couple of drops each of cinnamon, clove, cassia and oregano.

“Supplements helpful in the detoxification process include: cilantro, Vitamin C, selenium, garlic and others. Eating a clean diet, free of pesticides, is a must for a detoxification program. I encourage my clients to eat whole foods, with adequate amounts of plant based protein sources while detoxing. Eliminating the refined sugar, refined flour, and refined salt will help any health condition and help any detoxification program.

Here’s the deal, however, you have to have sulfur in your diet to detox properly, even with the support of something like essential oils in your plan. Nutrition is so important and we are so busy thinking about the medicine, we often forget the nutrition.

In a study these doctors, Dr. McCully,  and Dr. Ingenbleek, MD that took place in Chad, they looked at twenty-four rural male subjects ages eighteen to thirty, and fifteen urban male controls, ages eighteen to twenty-nine. (Women in this region of Chad could not be studied because of their animistic beliefs and proscriptions against collecting their urine.)

The rural men were apparently healthy, physically active farmers with good lipid profiles. Their staple foods included cassava, sweet potatoes, beans, millet and ground nuts. Cassava leaves, cabbages and carrots provided good levels of carotenes, folates and pyridoxine (B6). The rural Chadian diet is plant-based because of a shortage of grazing lands and livestock, but subjects occasionally consume some B12-containing foods, mostly poultry and eggs, though very little dairy or meat. Their diet could be described as high carb, high fiber, low in both protein and fat, and low in the sulfur-containing amino acids. The urbanites added in meat. The results fround that the near-vegetarian subjects were thinner, with poorer muscle tone, and showed subclinical signs of protein malnutrition.

So are you deficient in sulfur? 

If you aren’t vegan, eggs are among the highest dietary sources of sulfur, more so than meat. Another major source of sulfur in your diet is methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM. The plant foods that are typically high in MSM include Brussels sprouts, garlic, onions, asparagus, legumes and kale. Mmmm… Kale!! Two B vitamins contain large amounts of sulfur. These are thiamin, or vitamin B-1, and biotin, which is also known as vitamin H or vitamin B-7. Biotin is present in large amounts in a variety of protein foods, including egg yolks, sardines, nuts and legumes. Other good sources include cauliflower, bananas and mushrooms. I also take a great B Complex daily because I just don’t feel like with my allergies I’m getting enough.

Dietary sulfur helps to improve the health of your joints, skin, hair, nails and connective tissues. It can also slow nerve impulses, potentially helping to reduce pain. So let’s think about that… if you struggle to detox, you have issues with inflammation, joint pain, and you aren’t getting the sulfur needed to detox – you’re going to just be pushing the toxins out and into other areas of your body, and causing more inflammation and pain. And what you are most likely doing if you aren’t flushing the toxins out of your body, is flushing the good bacteria out of your body instead. So you’re making the digestive issues worse, and that is the lead brain in all of this we’ve learned. Your gut is in more control than you think.

So this sulfur enables the transport of oxygen across cell membranes. You want the essential oils to be able to pass in through the cell membranes. And since sulfur is directly below oxygen in the periodic table, these toxic elements have similar electron configurations. Not only does sulfur have a unique action on body tissues, but it will decrease the pressure inside the cell. In removing fluids and toxins, sulfur affects the cell membrane. Sulfur is present in all cells and forms sulfate compounds with sodium, potassium, magnesium, and selenium. Organic sulfur, in addition to eliminating heavy metals, regenerates, repairs and rebuilds all the cells in the body.

Get it right, support the detox and hopefully feel better. And tomorrow I’ll share why I got into this in the first place… because it all comes together if you can wait long enough to really figure out my thought process. See you tomorrow for Part 2.
