Great video: Dr. Mercola and Dr. Bush on Soil Microbes

Soil Microbes and Intercellular Communication… what a concept!

Dr. Mercola and Dr. Zach Bush

A very interesting video interview with a doctor who found that what he was taught in medical school was not what was needed to help people.

His epiphany led him to soil science. Deficiencies are caused by food not having the proper nutrients.

The soil is getting decimated. People need to wake up.

 

Do You Want To Feel Good?

If I can feel good so can you!

Magnesium will absolutely help.

It will help you feel better and it will improve your health significantly if you do it right.

If you only take multiple vitamins or cheap magnesium from the drug store, it most likely won’t do anything but make you have diarrhea or runny stools.

If you have a magnesium deficiency, and most people do, it is very important to take more at first to get your levels up. The problem is that a lot of magnesium will make you go to the bathroom. A lot. Fortunately some magnesium doesn’t do that.

I suggest you do the necessary research and read a little so you don’t just end up grabbing a bottle next time you see it at the store, and then later say it didn’t work.

Knowing why you are taking something and understanding the potential benefits will help guide you to successfully dealing with any problems you may be trying to get rid of.

What will Magnesium do for me???

At the very least Magnesium will help you sleep better and reduce anxiety. It will also make you a stronger healthier person in a lot of ways. If you have ailments (and who doesn’t) there is a good chance you’ll feel better and maybe even forget you had those problems.

Below is a list of thirty-six conditions that you may experience if you are low on magnesium:

1. Acid reflux 2. Adrenal fatigue 3. Alzheimer’s disease 4. Angina 5. Anxiety and Panic Attacks 6. Arthritis 7. Asthma 8. Atherosclerosis with calcium deposits. 9. Blood Clots 10. Bowel disease 11. Brian dysfunction 12. Cholesterol elevation 13. Cystitis 14. Depression 15. Detoxification 16. Diabetes 17. Fatigue 18. Headaches 19. Heart disease 20. Hypertension 21. Hypoglycemia 22. Indigestion 23. Inflammation 24. Insomnia 25. Irritable bowel syndrome 26. Kidney disease 27. Kidney stones 28. Migraine 29. Musculoskeletal conditions 30. Nerve problems 31. Obstetrical and gynecological problems 32. Osteoporosis 33. Parking’s disease 34. Raynaud’s syndrome 35. Sports injuries 36. Tooth Decay

Excerpt from Dr. Carolyn Dean PDF: 

Magnesium is a necessary cofactor utilized by 700-800 enzyme systems that perform vital metabolic functions in the body. It took me a whole book, The Magnesium Miracle, to describe the intricacies of magnesium physiology. After reading that book you’ll agree that miracle is the most suitable word to describe a mineral that treats acid reflux, adrenal fatigue, angina, anxiety, atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, depression, diabetes type 2, fibromyalgia, headaches, heart attacks, IBS, insomnia, kidney stones, migraines, muscle spasms, nerve twitches, osteoporosis, PMS, seizures and more.

I’ve just listed many chronic conditions that people are suffering from today, yet has your doctor ever told you to take magnesium? Probably not. That’s because nutrient therapy is not taught in medical school. Magnesium is not regarded as a first-line therapeutic agent in hospitals or doctor’s offices and it’s not a patentable drug. For all these reasons, mainstream medicine remains blind to the extent of magnesium deficiency that is reported to be present in 70-80 percent of the population.

I will make it easy by providing the links to Magnesium Info downloads and info about the right kind of products.

1) PDF – Miracle of Magnesium (Read this – you’ll be amazed)

If you are not yet convinced you need magnesium – this will set you straight.

2) PDF – Ultimate Guide

Additional info on the kinds of symptoms people have when they are magnesium deficient.

3) Magnesium Miracle – The Book on Amazon (Look inside to read some of it free – also read the reviews at bottom)

https://www.amazon.com/Magnesium-Miracle-Revised-Updated/dp/034549458X

Me – I use 3 different kinds of Magnesium as of about July 2016 and I can tell a huge difference. Especially in sleeping and general well being.

I personally have not done mega doses but have worked my way up to taking more of it.

4) ReMag – Super effective but expensive, but good, because you can put a spoonful of the liquid in a bottle of water and sip it throughout the day.

I use this in addition to the other magnesium I take. Read the reviews on amazon. People love this.

https://www.amazon.com/Pico-Ionic-RnA-Formulated-Absorption-Experience/dp/B01LZLSJ7B/

5) Jigsaw – I take 2 or 3 of these tablets daily. They are time release.

Might be the best one to try first. Also read the reviews on amazon. People say how their lives have been changed. I do not like to run out of this. It helps me sleep like a baby.

https://www.amazon.com/Jigsaw-Magnesium-SRT-Supplement-Bioavailable/dp/B00O2T209E

6) Natural Calm – fizzy fruity powdered drink.

I originally bought this for Mom, but unfortunately she hardly ever wants it, (she generally never wants anything healthy – not even food). I have it once in a while after lunch, or take it when I run out of the Jigsaw tablets.

What about food?

You can eat foods high in Magnesium, but remember that if you have a deficiency you will need more than a handful of spinach to solve the problem.

Doctors Speak on Fungus

Do you want to feel better? Wanna feel good? Be healthier? I do.

OK — I am fortunate to have found something that has helped me improve my life a lot over the past few years. If you have 5 minutes watch this video. It’s from a TV show called “Know The Cause”.

I hate to be preachy, but I have found this little known concept to help others too. Of course most people resist and are skeptical for some reason. Maybe this is exactly what you need right now.

On my pages and groups I often hear people saying they are “sick” with one thing or another. I often hear them say it’s hopeless or incurable or they don’t seem to have any interest in doing something to improve their situation.

All I can say is that this is real and it has been life changing for me – so why not give it 5 minutes to see if you connect with it.

And if you think this is a sales pitch – nope – the only benefit I get is helping people. I don’t make a penny in any way!

> Know The Cause – Phase One Diet

I can remember doing breathing exercises in the original courses I took way back when from Tony Robbins. This seems to be a hugely amplified version.

Great stuff!

I regularly do research on vitamins and minerals to see what the benefits are and consider how they may fit in to my nutritional program.

I also try to find as many antifungals as I can. I am often surprised by what turns out to be antifungal.

Potassium Iodide for example is antifungal.

I was doing some research on magnesium and potassium and ran into the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines.

I just added an article on the List of Essential Medicines.

While the foucs is more on medicines that are pharmaceutical in nature, it also has vitamins and minerals. It is a very thorough list and is available for download as a pdf.

If you are like me you have been reading labels on food products to check that the ingredients do not contain things you do not want to eat.

1453932566_laboratory

This is especially important if you are following diets and nutritional regimens such as the Doug Kaufmann Phase One Diet or a “Grain Free” or Gluten Free diet.

You know…. we try to avoid things like high fructose corn syrup, monosodium glutamate (MSG), yeast and so forth to maintain a higher level of health and wellness. Also avoiding excessive sugar and processed ingredients.

I have gotten pretty good at it. I can usually spot the preservatives and artificial ingredients and avoid making poor choices.

So at the very least I know when I prepare my own meals that I can be sure I am following my own path to health.

Now – it’s not always easy to find out the ingredients in the food we eat.

I just recently had a good old fashioned meal with family and decided to look at one of the cans in the garbage and sure enough the diced tomatoes had high fructose corn syrup.

If I were reading the labels I’d try to buy only foods that were pure or close to pure, especially when recipes call for stuff in cans.

Dining out can also be risky.

When we eat out we don’t get to see the full list of ingredients or even have any idea of what products are used.

How do they make the sauce? What’s really in that gravy?

Also – some labels can be intentionally confusing or even misleading. That’s because some big food companies have managed to change the names and hide ingredients.

Also what exactly are “natural flavors”???

I’ve read that is actually another name for MSG??? I don’t know that for a fact but now that I heard that I am very suspicious when ingredients list natural flavors. At the very least “natural flavors” must be processed to the extreme in some labratory concoction.

And let’s not even get started on GMO’s right now.

Boy – who would have thought that eating good healthy food would be such an adventure?

I recently started a new journey with Dr. Christopher and his Kidney Formula and his Blood Stream Formula supplements.

I started about 2 weeks ago and have about 4 weeks more to go before completing the program.

I have long been a fan of Dr. Christopher’s Formulas since my nutritionist introduced me to his Lower Bowel Formula about 6 years ago.

At the time it was a critical part of a new health regimen that was primarily intended to rid my body of toxins. Part of this process includes clearing the way so that the digestive system can easily push out the bad stuff.

Amazon Image The Lower Bowel Formula was one of those supplements that you took and immediately noticed. Some things you barely notice or maybe even not notice…. Lower Bowel Formula wasn’t like this.

When I followed the directions my nutritionist gave me and took properly after each meal, the Lower Bowel Formula set my system on a reset and helped me get used to eliminating regularly almost after every meal.

I went from 1 bowel movement (2 max) a day to 3 or 4.

Even after I stopped taking them I had trained my bowels to eliminate more often.

Along with the other things I was doing on this health and nutrition program I could really feel a huge difference in my well being. I’ll save a detailed description of that adventure for another time, but I just wanted to reinforce the fact I respect Dr. Christopher and his unique method of grouping herbs together into formulas to accomplish certain goals.

I was doing research on ZINC, which I have been taking for quite a few years now as part of my health regimen, and was distrurbed by some of the results showing on Google.

Zinc is amazing and helps a lot of people keep healthy!

Among the articles listed included ridiculous ones including Webmd’s shitty titled article “Too Much Zinc Linked to Prostate Cancer – WebMD”

This is just one of the reasons you need to be careful with Google results because a lot of the junk at the top after recent algo changes features mainstream sites like Mayo and WebMD which in my opinion publish a lot of garbage.

Don’t believe me? Read this article on ZINC to get the real lowdown.

I’ve included an excerpt where they cite how many mainstream news sources ONLY pickup the NEGATIVE studies on vitamins.

“Mainstream media, which is supported by Big Pharma advertising dollars, will often take nutrient-related “negative” studies and trumpet them in their headlines, while ignoring important information about how commonly used drugs are injuring and killing hundreds of thousands of individuals every year. There is extreme media bias as well as health care professional bias against dietary supplements that is part of a distorted reality which interferes with individuals improving their health or staying healthy.”

Can you spare the air for a brother?

Breathing wood smoke is unhealthy. If your home is smoking it is time to quit.

There are commercials on Spotify from sparetheair.org that are running that really strike a chord with me.

spare the air of wood smokeI live in the San Francisco Bay Area and for some reason this part of the country seems to be consumed with burning wood. If it gets a little cold or rainy the air is suddenly saturated with a strong burning smoke smell.

Then the news and weather programs warn us with ALERTS to STAY INSIDE and “SPARE THE AIR” by not burning wood. It’s that bad. The air pollution is at an unhealthy level.

When I used to drive up from Los Angeles and I would get close to the bay area I could always start to smell the smoke burning.

Sorry – but I just don’t like smoke. I stopped smoking cigarettes and do my best to avoid pollution whenever I can so it upsets me when there are people that are just blasting this burnt wood smoke into our air.

I guess a lot of it is just fireplaces – trying to be cozy and romantic – and a lot of it is people trying to save money by burning wood in stoves etc.

It’s just not good for our health.

As the commercial says – it’s time for your home to quit smoking.

Spare The Air

When a Winter Spare the Air Alert is in effect, it is illegal to burn wood, manufactured fire logs, pellets, or any other solid fuels in your fireplace, woodstove or outdoor fire pit.
During the winter season, wood smoke is the largest source of harmful particulate pollution. On this website, residents can find information about the health effects of wood smoke, as well as detailed information about the Wood Burning Rule and how to comply with it.

http://sparetheair.org/

More info about wood smoke:

Wood smoke contains fine particulate matter, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide and various irritant gases such as nitrogen oxides that can scar the lungs.

http://www.ehhi.org/woodsmoke/health_effects.shtml

Smoke may smell good, but it’s not good for you. Wood smoke can affect everyone, but children, teenagers, older adults, people with lung disease, including asthma and COPD or people with heart diseases are the most vulnerable.

The Fireplace Deulusion

There is no amount of wood smoke that is good to breathe. It is at least as bad for you as cigarette smoke, and probably much worse.

http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/the-fireplace-delusion

Because wood is a natural material and has been an integral part of human existence for so long, many view it as a benign, cheap and renewable energy alternative. But wood smoke can exacerbate asthma symptoms, and is especially harmful to children and older people. The emissions also have been linked to respiratory disease, atherosclerosis and other coronary problems, and early deaths among people with cardiovascular or lung disease.
